Premier Lloyd George drew an alarmist picture of Europe to-mgni. in ouutmswt British and American press repre sentatives he declared the object at Genoa was to clear political diffi culties which were' full of menace. He compared Europe to seething racial " lava, which like the earth's crust was seeking a proper level. He emDhasized that Europe must take cognizance - of hungry Russia, which would be equipped by an an gry Germany. "The world must recognize the fact," he said, "that Russia and Ger many combined contain, over two- thirds of the people of Europe. Their voice will be heard, and the Russo- German Treaty, is the. first warning of it." CITES LACK OF FRONTIER. As proof of the danger he cited the fact that there was no accepted frontier line from the Baltic to the Black Sea, including the Roumanian, Galician, Polish end Lithuanian 'I wish America were here," he exclaimed. "Some people think we want the United States for some selfish purpose. This is not true. We want America because she exercises a peculiar authority. Her very aloof ness gives her the right to speak. "America could exercise an influ ence no other country coma com mand. She could come here free and disentangled, and with the pres tige which comes from her inde pendent position she would- come with the voice of peace. "But America is not here, so Eu rope must do her best to solve the problems in her own way.' Mr. Lloyd George declare! the dis organization of Europe would affect the entire world, including the United States. He, was amazed at people who ignored the portentious fact facing Europe to-day. Unless Europe reorganized in other words, unless the Genoa Conference suc ceeded in arranging a pact of peace -he was confident that his own life, certainly in tho life of the younger mon present, Europe -would again welter in blood. FEARS NEW VENGEANCE. "We triumphed "In' the' war," he said, , "but our triumph will not last Just as Germany's action which start- led tho World War was followed by vengeance. "Me must be Just and equitable and show strength. We must realize th?t Europe Is not on good terms and that storms are arising which we must deal with. Wo had hoped that the end of the great war meant tho end of brute force, but. unless Europe's problems are solved there is no assurance that force has given way to right." The British Prime Minister sol emnly urged the press to Instill pa tience, good will ' and fellowship throughout the world. "You are here," he concluded," to instruct, to sustain, t6 guide, and I beg of you in the interests of the world's future not to add to the obstacles vhich are in the way, but to use your influence to help in the solution of difficulties which are full of menace.;' The Mayor's Cont.

CLOVER'S PEDIGREE SHOWS ENGLISH HORSE AGED 62 Old Clover, Oldest American Horse la Living at 51. ' Washington, April 26. Old Clo ver, the fifty-on-year-old horse dis covered at Catawissa, Pa., in the pos session of Rev. Uriah Myers, is not registered in any of the horse pedi gree books under his present name, according to the findings of tho De partment of Agriculture. J. 0. Williams, horse export of the Bureau of Animal Industry, said to day that he had looked through all of the records with a view to ascer taining the breeding of this remark able horse, and had been unable to connect with any registration num ber. He pointed out that Clover could have an alias, as many fins horses have had. "I , am very anxious to get the breeding of this horse," said he. It should be preserved by the depart ment. The only thing that approaches hiin is a" 'Covei,' alias 'Brightwood,' a bay gelding, foaled in 1860. If we arbitrarily fix tho date at the last year of that decaqo, 1863, uiover would be fifty throe Instead of fifty- one. This Clover or ungntwooa was got by Young Hindoo, son of Hin doo.", A careful search of the records at the department revealed but one old er horse than -Clover. This was an English barge horse that lived to be sixty-two and died many years ago. The Horseman of July 28, 1888, told of this liorse, whose home was at Warrington. Another item refers to an old "tow-path" horse of Manches ter, who passed away at sixty-two and whose head is preserved in a mu seum In England. Mr. Williams thinks this is the same horse. The records show that one horse In theUnited S'atcs lived to be forty five, another. td forty-four, but most of the "old horses" were around Cash Meat Market and Grocery :::::n.::HHH::::::::n::::::::!i The only store in town of its kind.
