Warns of Menace to U. S. If Peace
Pact Is Not Made.
Nenoa, April 26. 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."
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.
"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
"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.;'

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
