these prices may not prove to be

the fact that large portions of the

This remains to be seen. If the gov

to do, begin purchasing on behalf of
the roade, the navy and the army,

The founder of the town and col
lege of Oberlin, Ohio, was Rev. John
J. Shiphord, who was born 117 years
ago, March. 28, 1802. He joined with
Philo P. Stewart in founding the
famous educational Institution, wMch
was established in 1884 as Oberlin
Collegiate, and chartered in 1850 aa
Oberlin College. The institution was
named Oberlin as a memorial to the
Rev. J. F Oberlin. a Protestant pas
tor of Waldbach, ln Alsace, who was
born ln 1740 and died In 1826. Dur
ing the decade prior to the Civil war
Oberlin College became known as the
center of the abolition movement and
as a "station" on the underground
railway," a popular designation of
the secret means by which runaway
slaves were permitted to escape Into
Canada. In 1868 Prof. Henry E.
Peck, of the Oberlin faculty, and
others ware arrested, under the fugi
tive slave law, for rescuing the negro
"Little Joh" who had been taken
from Oberlin by a United States
deputy marshal. Oberlin College now
has a faculty of 175 and about 1,700
students, and Is one of the most

"The prohibitionists, if successful in

League Cbanges Needed.
"It is a singular circumstance," said
Mr. Depew last night," that a sup
posably perfect document the Presi
ident so regarded it like the league
of nations covenant, should be found
by the President himself to need four
or five substantial alterations.
"Often it takes a little time for the
truth and the right thing to work
itself out of the twilight into the open
day, but usually the evolution takes
place. When I was a boy we used
to fight in my particular village in
Westchester county every Saturday.
That was the primitive way we had.
When one man had the other man fiat
on 'his back, in position to gouge out
his eyes or choke him to death, the
fellow on his back usually had sense
enough to indicate that he had had
enough fight. Ordinarily a definite
understanding between the combat
ants was reached then and there.
"That was Germany's position after
the war. The Hun was down and
gasping for terms. He would have
accepted any terms. That was the
time to impose the terms. Instead of
laying down the terms to him, the
Allies the oponent of the Hun sud
denly became so seized with the idea
that It would be well to settle a lot
of matters between themselves that
they let the Hun get on his feet. Now
the Allies are not just sure that the
Hun was licked at all, and the Hun
begins to think the same way about
Europe In Chaotlo State.
'The present chaotic condition in
all of Middle Europe refutes the idea
that the small states of Middle and
Eastern Europe were ready for self
determination. "Ultimately we shall reach some
sort of a basis of settlement and
things will quiet down, but on ac
count of the ancient racial antagon
isms between the states and the in
flammation of the war any place will
need to be guaranteed by a large
standing army for decades to come.
"Our sure anchorage is the Monroe
Doctrine. Any weakening of it would
be a grave mistake for us. We do
not need to shoulder new and grave
international obligations on account
of the war. There is a clearer recog
nition today of the United States as
a great moral force than ever before.
At the Algeciras conference the
Kaiser was determined to seize Mo
rocco, which would 'have provoked a
war with France, and probably Eng
land. Our delegates protested against
the Kaiser's proposed action. It was
a display of moral force, and it count
ed. . The Kaiser didn't know just how
far we would carry our protest.
"The open door ln China was ob
tained without a gun behind our de
mand, because John Hay believed in
the potentiality of our moral force.
If we could do so much then, without
a show of physical force, we shall be
able to do much, more from this time
"We raised an army of 4,000,000
men ln a year and a half, and wo
drafted an army of IB, 000, 000. We
actually sent across 2,000,000 men.
Europe knows the result. Histor
ians for centuries to come will keep
that accomplishment in mind. More
over, we raised $16,000,000,000 for
towar purposes, and loan"1 Europe $8,-
000,000,000 more, without winking an

"Bolshevfsm Is a nightmare In

When Mr. Depew was asked about
the national railroad policy he
"In one respect the " problem of
rates and wages has been made more
easily solvable by the government
ownership or operation during the
war. The government found that
the revenues from, operation were in
sufficient to permit of a wage scale
that the government deemed neces
sary under the circumstances. The
government thereupon increased the
rates. Now, in time of peace, under
normal conditions, no such stiff! in
crease in rates would have been tol
erated, but the government did it, and
the people stood it without protest.
Substantially the same principle will
have to be adhered to. If the rev
enue is insufficient the rates will havs
to be advanced.
"What is needed is absolute gov
ernment control, without any half
way business about it. The country
should be divided into regional ter
ritory, with the direction of the rail
road business of each regional dis
trict allotted along natural lines.
Kijr Problem for Congress.
"It is going to be very interesting
to see how Congress manages to
finance the government during recon
struction. As a nation we have taken
a view directls' opposite c the one
exercised by Great Britain. That
country taN the appetites of the
people that is to say, Great Britain
imposes stiff excise and import duties
on liquors, tobacco, tea, coffee and
sugar, making all of its people get

man's breakfast sugar. We have

burdening ordinary business with in
creasing income taxes and excess
profit taxes the business so overbur

"Now that the prohibitionists have
voted to abolish the sale of alcoholic
beverages. I look to see the same

of tea and coffee and tobacco. Thej

Tea and coffee will come next. Eng
