Against Any Treaty Giving Fore'gn Born Rights of Citizenahip. San Francisco. Nov. 22. Senator Fhelan of California to-day sent a tell cram .to governors and senators of western states asking them to- "please telegraph your political protest to the state department aga'nst any treaty which gives foreign-born Japanese now in this county the rights of citizenship. The telegram was prompted, Senator fhelan said, by despatches from Lon don, which said an agreement, was rearing completion between the Unir ed States and Japan which proposed full 'citizenship for Japanese now in this country and under which Japan would absolutely restrict further im migration to the United States. "Citizenship for Japanese," said the telegram, would give them not only control of the land, but also a danger ous political power. To grant rights of citizenship including land ownership to the -100,000 Japanese ln California and the other thousands scattered throughout the western states would be nothing less than the destruction of the white population. The Japanese already here have birth rate three or four times as great a the white. 'Resident Japanese hav recently returned to Japan in large numbers since the picture bride abuse was abflithed, to bring back wives with tic studied plan of increasing their numbers. "Such a treaty as proposed, instead of producing better relaliwns would cause greater antagonism and possibly lean to war. 'A treaty should not be allowed to attempt to override a state law passed by a people who understand their own peril and are acting for their own preservation." DEMAND FOR TIMBER.

A suggestion for curbing the forward pass, to prevent development of present-day football into the game more nearly resembling basketball has been advanced by fer ry D. Uaughton, founder of Harvard's gridiron coaching system. "Instead of having an incomplete forward put revert to the team which started the flay, make a forward pass blocked behind the throwers' line of scrimmage subject to recovery by op ponents under the same conditions a blocked kick," was Haughton 'a iden At present a pass which haa beet batted down but not caught by an op ponent, merely costs the throning team a down. The ug?rtion comes as an inter esting aftermath to the Yale-Harverd game at XewHaven Saturday in which the strategy of head coach Bob Fishcr of Harvard for a forward paing at tack in the Critnon's own territorv Biarlrd a radical departure from ail previous Harvard schemes of p'ay. , .

The world is again turning to the United States for its supplies of for est products and our exports of tim ber, lumber and other forest products will aggregate about. $200,000,000 in the calendar year 1020 against an av erage of $7o!)00,000 per annum dur ing the war period. Our exports of forest products says a statement by the National City Bank of New -York, have aggregated more than a billion dollars in the last de cade despite the partial interruption by the war and are now running at the rate of $200,800,000 a year or nearly four timet as much, in statfd value, aa in certain of the war vears when the natural reduction in world demand was intensified by the lack of transpor tation facilities. In the pre-war years, our exports of lumber and other for est products aggregated about $7.",000, 000 per annum, and were steadily ad vancing so that in the year immediate ly preceding the wax the total value of all forest products exported wss ? 11. "1,000,000.. But, with the opening of the war, the demand temporarily de clined, especially from Europe and the total value of the exports of this class dropped in lOIo and I91t to just one half that of the year preceding the war. Now, however, all parts of the world and the Russian supplies tempo rarily, cut off. the world again turns to the United States and her neigh bor, Canada, and our exports of lum ber and other forest products which advanced from $.55,000,000 in 1915 to $87,000,000 in the closing year of the war. was $137,000,000 in 1019 and promises to be about $200,000,000 in the calendar year 1920. Russia, adds the bank's statement, with her bin timber surplus and prox imity to the European market. wa, prior to the war, our chief rival in the lumber and timber markets of the world, her exports of wood in all forms having aggregated $75,000,000 in 191X those of Canada $47,000,000 and the United Mates $115,000,00. With Rus sia' supply not now available to her European neighbors, they are calling upon the. United States for supplies, while Asia. Oceanic South America and even South Africa, are aIo taking largely to our forest products, and also calling upon Canada, whyse exports of lumber and other forest product in Win were $ 1 W.oo,ooo, against our $137,000,000 in that year and a proa pect of -$200,000,000 in 1020. Oriental demands for our lumber and other forest produce have rapidly in ereased in recent years. In the eight months of 1020, for which details are now available, the Orient, including Asia and Oceania in this term, took Approximately $10,000,000 worth of this rlasa of material from the United States, against less than $.1,000,000 in the same months of the immediately preceding year. Our Latin-American friends at the south took, in the eight month ending with August of the cur rent year, over $20,000,000 worth of pitch pine lumber alone, againt 7, 000.000 worth in the same months of last year, and this total was materially increased by the demand for certain other classes of lumber, and specially staves. Europe, which relied largely upon Russia for her forest products and nearly all of the $75,000,000 worth which she" exported, now turns to the United States, taking largely of our oak and pitch pine luirbcr and timber, and the total of these two groups sent to Kurope in the eight months ending with August of the current year was tn.Onn.nnn in value, against less than fjnnfl.ntin In the same month of 1914. Curiously, our importation of forest products ia nearlv as large in value as our exports, tut in large degree of a different character. We have imported ill the eight months ending with Au gust, fnr which details are available. 4.nno.000 worth of wrood pulp alone. hieflv from Canada. Norway and Swe den, and approximately $7.0OO,OV worth of cab-net wnd. chieflr front the tropics, and in addition to this about MA non.nrm orth of lumber con ing chief y from the Canadian for- ssts whose proximitv to our pew-lei alonff the northern border just lfie them WOULD ENJOIN SEC.

A. Stowell wrote in 1912 in a letter of recommendation that "by his services with the Mont pelier 4 Wells Fiver railroad he has proved himself efficient, capable and trustworthy in every duty assigned him." lie was born in Williamstown Jan. 1, 1872, the son of Solon and Ellen Smith. With his parents he resided in Williamstown and Washington and at the age of It) vears went to St. Al bans to accept work as a time-keener in the St. Albans foundry.

Attorney for National Anti-Saloon League Addressed Audience in Barre Last Night. In spite of inclement weather condi tions an audience, which nearly filled the Congregational church at the un ion services of all Protestant citurches of- Barre at 7 o'clock last night, took the opportunity to listen to Wayne B Wheeler of uashington, 1). C, attor ney for the Antt-Saloon league, ' in clear, forceful and interesting address on "What's Next m the Liquor Fight." The speaker began by telling of the many snd various methods used by the liquor men in attempts to nullify the 18th smendment. He spoke of five Jsrge and strong, societies w ith head quarters in ' New York, Boston, Mil waukee snd other American cities, and of how their list of eleven points was completely rejected by the supreme court. They next criticised the con struetion of the law concerning that portion which allows a person to keep in his own home for his own use any liquor which ' he owned at the time when the prohibition law went into effect, ims part of the law was draft ed because the supreme court was at the time unable to find any course by which" one's property could be confis cated and destroyed withdut due rep aration However, the same court maintained that the transporting of liquor from one place to another was illegal. An attempt to. convert public sentiment to their side by the outlay of a large s mount of money in order to influence the decision of the court wss made bv the saloon party. Tha court disregard ed any sentiment, and after consider'n"? the law and facts of the case onee more Supported prohibition. Next the opposition questioned what they railed the absurdity e;f the low ness of one-half of one per cent, and called for a referendum in half a dozen states after the soldiers' return on a bill favoring light beers' and Wines. The outcome was a decided victory for prohibition. The next attack was on the personnel of the t-ongress which passed the law. At the following elec tions 220 members were re-elected, and 80 new advocators of prohibition elect ed, leaving only 135 a nti prohibitive members in the house. Then they tri-d to prevent ratification of the IStn amendment by the states without success. Now that the law is in effect, Mr. Wheeler feels that any state which does not adopt an enforcement code not unlike the federal code not only in jures its own coffers, hut is unfair to tt . citizens as well, in any state where an enforcement, code is not in effect,, fines and forfeited bonds aris ing from violation of the prohibition law go to the federal treasury, and anyone who violates the law is tried by the federal courts and must await trial in a federal jail if he has not the required sum of money for bond, Tn the case of an innocent man, the 'beak er said, he isoften taken to a place of detention -far-away fnm his fjriends, and must iwait "art opportunity to prove his Innocence much longer than if he were to be tried in a court of 4he state. He tolA how the liquor deal ers are bribing officials, of how they are forging permits, and of the liquor in bond which they are stealing. He told of the work which prohibition men are carrying on to prevvnt. such evasions, utner countries win act ac cording to the success of the measure of the United States. The liquor traf fic haa been transporting intoxicating beverages to foreign countries in many cases bringing failure to the millions of our money invested in missionaries. Mr. Wheeler's co-workers have dis covered evidence through letters of liq uor men themselves of how they In fluenced politics and policies through control of some newspapers and tha secret ownership of others which were supposed to have no affiliation to ei ther side. The speaker concluded with the statement that the success so far won by the anti-saloon party was due to an organization . of many v ho felt the moral righteousness of the cause Hi urged all to rally to the snpport and enforcement of the law; that it de pended a lot on the individual re sponse, at the ssme time citing exam ples of tals kind of response. I he Pint of the entire campaign sgainst iqnor was reflected in one ef his last tatemente: " We must make. good; we can make good; we will make good. At the end of the talk envelopes were distributed and figned by nearly veryone present pledging both their nanoial and moral support to the ermont Ant i-Saloon league in its RARRE.
