Reports are current at Casablanca, Morocco, that the- patrol ship Diana has brought into that port three bodies supposed to be those of members of the crew on board the French airplane Goliath, according to a dispatch to The Journal. The Goliath has been missing for a week. Authorities here deny the reports, but in maritime circles it is nevertheless reported that if the bodies are not on board the Diana they were ' undoubtedly picked up by other patrol boats. heals itching sUin troubles Resinol Ointment usually stops itch ing at once.

The Norwich university centennial committee met last week at Stratford and Norwich, the chief business being the , formulation of plans for the pilgrimage , to Norwich on Founders' day, Oct. 13. ' Various special committees to have charge of the events of the week were named at this meeting. During the ses sion a visit was made to Old South bar-1 racks at Norwich, and to cemeteries at Norwich and South Strafford, where are buried the founder and many of the : early supporters 'Of the. institution. A I group of the interested citizens of Nor wich met with the committee at the Newton inn to discuss plans, and assure the co-operation of the community. Among those present were Captain Hen ry V. Partridge, Rev. F. J. Buttery, Dr. Bowles . and ladies representing various church and civic federations. The general plan for the day. is as fol lows: The party will leave Northfield " in the morning, the cadets under arms and with full equipment. Transporta tion is in charge of a special committee whose chairman is H. C. Fisher of Barre, and it is hoped that sufficient automo biles will be available to carry the en tire party of cadets and guests, except those cadets who will form the mounted troops, which will start the afternoon be fore. The arrival at Norwich is planned for noon, and lunch will be eaten im mediately, out of doors if weather per mits; This will be followed by a parade and review at 1 o'clock, and it is hoped that many men of the old Norwich will be present in the reviewing stand. After the parade will come a prayer and an address of welcome, followed by an ad dress on some subject to be announced. Then the tablet to Captain Partridge will be unveiled and an address on Captain Alden Partridge, educator, will be de livered. A procession will then be formed and will proceed to the cemetery, where the graves of those connected with the early history of th institution will be dedi cated, a brief tribute being spoken at each grave. This ceremony will be con cluded with a volley and the sounding of taps. Returning from the cemetery the " program at Norwich will end with even ' ing parade and retreat on the old pa rade ground. At sometime during the day, probably fey detouring from the main line of trav el, on either the down trip or the re turn trip, a detachment of cadets, offi cials atWl guests will visit the cemetery at South Strafford to decorate the grave of Curtis S. Barrett, '63, donor of the Barrett fund. The tablet to Captain Partridge is to be of bronze, located, if possible, on the original parade, close to Main street. No decision has been rstehed as yet regard ing the material for the base, but ham mered granite, a native boulder, and a composite of materials from the ruins of J the Old South barracks have been dis cussed. The day will be of interest to the sur vivors of the old Norwich, and it is the aim of the committee to make it an in spiration to those of Northfield days, to whom the "brave days of yore" have been a rather vague tradition. Two Ford Machines Went Completely Through Smugglers' Notch. Two automobiles made the trip com pletely through Smugglers' notch from Stowe to Jeffersonville last week, and the fact is thus related in the Water bury Record : "One day last week an automobile party, including Mr. and Mrs. . R. Linke and children of .Springfield, Mass., Mr. and Mrs. Ira Knapp and two sons, Locke and Ward, Miss Mabel Kenyon, a niece of Mrs. Knapp, and grandson, Merle Marshall, all of Waterbury, took an automobile trip to Smugglers' Notch and instead of coming back the same road by which they went, kept on and started down the other side of the moun tain, on an old disused road which leads to Jeffersonville, which no one has ever before attempted to travel in an automo bile, even in its best condition. "The party traveled in two autos, a Ford touring car and a Ford runabout. The first place reached going down Dead Horse hill was a lumber camp, where the men expressed great surprise at see ing a party come down over the moun tain, and especially in automobiles. Pro ceeding still further down the moun tain, on account of faulty brakes, it was necessary to use three pieces of timber to dray the front end of the machines and obstacles presented themselves at every turn. There were huge boulders and rocks in the way and the grass at times was as high as the machines. Bridges across the brooks had rotted away, and the trail presented the ap pearance of a washed out brook-bed. A ravine bordered on one side of the trail (for it was more a trail than a road) and many other difficulties hindered the party. It is certain that no machine could ever attempt to ascend the trail, inasmuch as it is almost impossible to go down the mountain, even with a Ford. "The dofeent was made safely, how ever, and after having a few repairs made at Jeffersonville, the party re turned to Waterbury. Mr. Linke rec ommends this trail to anyone consider ing climbing the Alps or the Rockies, and gives warning that brakes must be in best of condition before this feat is attempted. Numerous other trips were made last week in the cars and also sev eral climbing expeditions, such as Mount Mansfield and Camel's Hump. Mr. and Mrs. Linke and children, who have been the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Ira Knapp during their week's stay here, left Mon day on the return trip to their home in Springfield, which will be by the way of the White mountains, going later to the Maine coast and then to Boston, camping on the way. It is needless to say that they have enjoyed their vaca tion here." A Drawback. "They say Maud's second husband has $10,000 a year. How contented she must be." "She in't though, exactly.

Washington, D. C., Aug. 23. People ought to be satisfied with present food prices, there isn't any profiteering in the retail meat and grocery business, and consumers want to pay high prices, Thomas Dunn, a St. Louis meat dealer told the Senate agriculture committee yesterday at the hearing on legislation to control the packing industry. "The working people are the worst offenders", he said. They absolutely won't have anything but the finest and best. The only good this investigation can do i sto make these people think, can do is to make these people think, of their heads." The five big packers are not mon opolizing anything, or "robbing any thing, or "robbing anybody", and need ed no regulations, Dunn said. LABOR PROVISIONS OF TREATY INADEQUATE Fail to Cope with Threatening Labor Evils and Point Toward Program Which May Disturb Domes tic Peace, Says Sen. Thomas. Washington, D. C, Aug. 23 The labor provisions of the peace treaty fail to cope with threatening , labor evils and point toward a program which may dis turb the domestic peace of the United States, Senator Thomas, Democrat, Colo rado, declared yesterday in the Senate. He expressed grave doubt whether that section of the treaty could be accepted under the constitution. The international labor conference to be set up, he declared, would be an im portant integral part of the league of nations, though the provisions creating it are not included in the league cove nant. "Inasmuch as organized labor correct ly speaks of itself as a class," he said, "it is entirely appropriate to say that by including this program in the treaty, dis tinct recognition and separate organi zation are given to that class. To en throne a class, whether by revolution or treaty is it but to estrange other classes. "It may be possible to reach the goal of uniformity in the conditions of la bor, but I question whether it can be done otherwise than by making the standard the lowest, and levelling down to it. Strict uniformity in world labor conditions can be attained only at the expense of the American wage earner. I cannot avoid the conclusion that these articles designed for his physical and spiritual improvement may make him the equivalent of the continental work er. Preferring to the provision that the credentials of delegates to the interna tional conference may be pasted on by the conference itself, he continued: "Personally, I do not like a covenant which subjects the selection of high offi cials by the government of the United States for the discharge of important international functions to review and possible rejection by an external au thority. The treaty thus makes the conference a substitute for or a supple ment to the president and thfi Senate. "For some time I entertained a doubt whether article 405 did not invest this conference with a species of legislative or treaty making power. And proposals for the extension of this power will probably soon follow the establishment of the permanent organization, if I cor rectly apprehend the purport of the offi cial introduction. "I do not look for the early advent of the stupendous upheaval which must come to the structure of the American government before it can constitutional ly assent to such a delegation of power, but I can well imagine how efforts to secure it would profoundly disturb our domestic peace; for the labor program points that way." He also said he could not avoid the conclusion that certain judicial rights vested by the constitution in American courts would be delegated to the tribu nals set up by the labor section. Painting a gloomy picture of labor conditions in this country and declaring that organized labor was employing methods which threaten the nation's po litical and social existence, he declared these were the real matters that should concern legislatures. "Yet .there, are conditions." he con tinued, "which the labor section of the treaty neither provides against nor cata logues among those requiring correction by international covenant."

The British M. T.'s idea of supplying the laureate with Canary wine to give him poetic inspiration is all wrong.

Boston Transcript. To Get Piece of Meat Generally Takes Two Hours, to Obtain a Loaf of Bread One Hour, and Other Prod ucts in Proportion. Rome, Aug. 20 (Correspondence of the Associated Press). Seven hours of each day of the Italian housekeeper must be devoted to buying food. The problems of the ordinary American housekeeper pale into insignificance even with their trou blesome servants, when compared to the Italian. Domestic servants' strikes in Italy are chronic. The recent upheaval in Italian eco nomies when the government ordered prices of foodstuffs and clothing reduced 50 per cent has begun its reaction, and the factor affected most is the house keeper. She must start to market at 7 o'clock in the morning, and is forced to hurry from one store to another. To ob tain a piece of meat usually takes two hours, to obtain bread about an hour, eggs two hours, vegetables one hour and a half, and canned goods about an hour." The housekeeper's day starts by plac ing herself at the back of a long line of waiting customers. The line sometimes extends for a half block, guarded by armed carbineers. When the buyer is permitted to enter the store, she finds in side a scramble for all sorts of commodi ties. Guards are stationed there to pre vent any mischief. If she obtains what she wants, she is lucky. She treads over the streets a whole morning searching for the things for lunch, and then, in the afternoon, must start on the hunt again for food. If she is looking for butter, she is usually dis appointed, for there is little to be had. She may obtain meat, but is usually thankful to go away with a can of American "bully-beef." It often happens that her family must miss a meal, but that is usually over looked. It is too evident on every hand. Housekeepers sometimes watch a car of produce unloaded at the railroad sta tion and follow the motor trucks to the store where the produce will be sold. When a carload of eggs arrived the oth er day women clung to the trucks carry ing the eggs to stores while others ran alongside. At the stores the clerks stood in doorways and handed out the eggs, three only to a customer. Some custom ers reached over others' hods with their hats, while others pushed aside the weak er ones. Servants take their rest days by telling the housekeeper they are going for a day or two. They come back when it suits them. The days of those "perfect Italian servants," as Americans ued to call them, have passed away, and a house keeper is lucky to have a servant at all. of the women he painted, and an Ameri can critic described it as a "powerful woman with red hair and a vacant stare in her eyes." Among the few who appreciaed its charm was Swinburne, who after seeing it, wrote the poem, "Before the Mirror." The picture, for which the model "Jo" sat, shows a girl in a simple white gown leaning against the mantle, her face reflected in the mirror. "Cremorne Lights" is a nocturne in blue and silver, a twilight scene with only two tones, the sky and the water slightly lighter in color, with the ghosts of buildings and the reflections of the lights of the old Cremorne gardens. "The "Fire Wheel" is a picture of a fireworks display, a nocturne in black and gold. "TAKING MOVIES" OF VOLCANO. FAMOUS WHISTLER PAINTING. The. "Little White Girl" Is Now Being Exhibited in London. London, Aug. 22 (Correspondence of the Associated Press) One of Whistler's most famous paintings, the "Little White Girl," is now on view in the National gallery to which it v presented togeth er with two other Whistler paintings, "Cremorne Lights" and the ','Mie Wheel." The "Little White Girl" was painted in 1804 and exhibited at the Royal acad emy in 1805, where it created a sensa tion and aroused much hostile criticism. One critic regretted that Whistler should make the "most bizarre of bipeds" out Party of Scientists Are in Southwestern Corner of Alaska. "Juneau, Alaska, Aug. 22. Volcano peaks in the far southwestern corner of Alaska are in eruption this summer evi dently, for the benefit of a party of sci entists sent by the National Geographic society to study Mount Katmai, the greatest of Alaska's smoking mountains, and its "Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes." Persons who ' have returned recently from the volcanic country to the wct ward said Shiahaldin peak, on Unimak island, in the Aleutian chain, was in eruption recently. They also reported it was believed Mount Bavloff on the southwestern Alaskin mainland, also had spouted as the snow about the sum mit was coal black. When the party of scientists left An chorage, Alaska, on their way to the Katmai country, they said they be lieved there was little likelihood of an eruption this summer and declared they were certain there was absolutely no danger attached to the investigation. Katmai's last big "blow off" was in June, 1912. The party of 25 scientists is headed by Professor Robert A. Griggs of the University of Ohio and some are from Carnegie institute. They are planning to make observations of the botanical, biological and geological effects of the 1912 eruption. In 1P13 Professor Griggs headed a party of scientists to Katmai and re turned with the announcement that the crater was the largest on the globe and that near Katmai lay a great valley whose floor was dotted with thousands of mouths vomiting gray vapory gas and smoke. This valley, Professor Griggs named "The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes." Instead of ten thousand, it is said there are literally millions of smok ing vents. Congress recently set aside "The Val ley of Ten Thousand Smokes" as na tional property and it Is believed that some, day it will be a second Yellow stone geyser field. Steaming springs, it is said, will eventually take the place of the present smoking vents. Professor Griggs find his party ex pect to remain in the Katmai district until the middle of September. Until they return nothing probably will be heard from them as there is no direct means of comnuinicaUo:i. Mrs. Griggs and her children accompanied the pro fessor to Kodiak, an island near Katmai, and will remain there during the sum mer, waiting for him to return. Moving pictures of the smoking moun tain and valley are to be brought back by the party. mm BOSTON.

Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 23. A visit to Latin-American countries by Mississippi valley concerns interested in taking ad vantage of new trade conditions since the ending of the war and to include rep resentatives of Chicago, St. Louis, Mem phis, Cincinnati, New Orleans and many inland cities, is planned for this fall and winter. Not less than 300 commercial, financial and business establishments are to be represented. It is proposed to make an extensive trip to ascertain by personal observation the business conditions and possibilities in South America and how the Missis sippi valley can best develop its trading interests with the Latin states. The movement was started by the New Orleans Association of Commerce, which already has delegated a committee to interest other similar organizations and which also has taken up with the United States shipping board the question of ob taining a vessel for the trip. It is the intent to start about Nov. l; on a tentative itinerary that will take the delegation to Cuba, Jamaica, Santa Domingo, Haiti, cities in Venezuela, Co lombia, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile and back through -the Panama canal. It is quite certain from local informa tion, that Memphis and St. Louis will be well represented and assurance has been obtained that Chicago and Cincin nati will likewise send a number of rep resentatives. The proposal is of especial interest in the lower Mississippi valley because of recent announcement and as surance that river transportation is to be much improved as far north as Memphis and St. Louis and likewise because of rapid development of livestock and agri cultural progress in the lower valley country. , RAILROAD PROBLEM NOT NEW. C. F. Adams' Argument for Public Own ership 46 "Years Ago. Forty-six years ago Charles Francis Adams appeared before the Massachu setts legislature and made an argument for the public ownership of the chief railway system of that state. As the distinguished author of' the celebrated investigation of the scandals of the Erie, entitled "A Chapter of Erie," and as the leading member and founder of the rail way commission of Massachusetts, the first in the country, Commissioner Ad ams was heard with great respect and attention. He was then the foremost authority on railways in the ration and appeared on tho invitation of the legis lature. In introducing his thesis for state own ership, Commissioner Adams quoted fa vorably from The Nation of Feb. ti, 1873, "a paper well known for its ability and for its frcetrade proclivities a deter mined opponent of the whole theory and system of paternal meddling and gov ernment interference." From an argu ment against government interference with industrial undertakings generally, the Nation is further , quoted as fol lows: "There is but one case which war rants such interference, and that is es sentially the same for all departments of industry. That case arises for a re publican government whim any one branch of the business of the communi ty is so monopolized that citizens can no longer share tn or control it, and so mis managed that they can no longer en dure it. Vi hen that day comes . . . government is warranted, all other rem edies having failed, in prostrating pri vate enterprise by the crushing hand of power, and supplanting private Indus trv ss best it may." Mr. Adams accepted this statement and at once went on to show that the railroad business is different from other business, such as the shoe trade, a cotton factory and the like, bv being psacti cally free from the ordinary influence of competition and the laws of supply and demand. "Transportation by rail," he say's, "is a pure, absolute monopoly, affected only by law and considerations of self-interest, and in no degree subject to the influence of either competition or supply and demand." He showed that the only points where a semblance of competition entered in was where railways crossed at junctions or came together at common terminals, and that even here, "where combination was possible, competition was impossible," as old George Stephen son had pointed out in the infancy of railways. "The only competition which exists," Mr. Adams asserted, "is between land transportation and water transportation. When water enters into the struggle when navigation opens-then the freight agents meet, and rates are reduced; when the lakes freeze up, then the freight agents meet again, and the rates arc raised. Whether reduced or raised, however, the change always is the result of combination." , What Mr. Adams said at that rather remote time is to-day largely applica ble to the solution of our national rail way problem now before Congress, The distinguished railway genius went on in this remarkable address, delivered Feb. 14, 1873, to show the folly and fallacy of attempted government rcu'ation of these public highways of steel. He called the attempt at government regulation "unlimited meddling" with the business farmed out by the government to an other for private profit, a system that could ultimately end only in failure. He proceeded thus with his argument: "It is indeed the opponents of state ownership who are the firm consistent friends of government meddling in in dustrial enterprises. They insist that the government shall do the work of the railroad managers, and thfry call it 'regulation.' They insist that govern ment shall reduce meddling to a sys tem, and they call it 'supervision.' They muddle our railroad legislation into a mass of absurdities, and they call that leaving the t. railroads alone. We have, I insist, as regards our railroad system, been on a wholly wrong track. We have been trying to regulate it, and all the while say we were not regulating it; we have been trying to meddle, and say we were not meddling; we have been trying to manage find control, and supervise, and all the while we have chattered and canted about competition and the law of supply and demand. It is high time that we began to see things as they are, and to call them by their right names. There is nothing which renders legisla tion more difficult or more subtly per nicious thun this getting hold of a cor rect principle, and, in a li!i, monoto nous, parrot-like manner, making a false application of it. As regards railroads we have been doing this for 40 years." The application to the present emer gency is that if they had been doing. it for 40 years before this hearing ot the Massachusetts legislature, we have now perpetuated this folly for a period of 8(1 years, and it is time t pause.
