TUX'ItSJOAY, reSIPONEMENT THAT IS DANGEROUS EVER since Senator Borah began to urge his amendment to the Naval bill calling for a disarmament conference be tween Japan, Great Britain and the United States, there has been a large amount of perfectly justifiable curiosity on the part of the American public to know what the attitude of the administration was towards this measure. It was understood at first that there was considerable opposition by the President to the Senate taking any action in the matter, and it was sup posed in some quarters that Senator Borah's resolution would be quietly killed in that body. There was a sudden and unex plainable shift of front at the White House on this matter. The Republican senators were instructed to vote for the confer ence, and the passage of the resolution by a unanimous vote was the result. This could be taken to indicate but one thing; thai Washington had discovered a tremendous sentiment all through the country for the very thing that Borah was urging in his resolution. Believers in the policy of reduction of arma ment took heart immediately, only to be discouraged after they had seen the shilly-shallying delay on the matter in the House, and good reason for thinking that delay and deadlock could more or less properly be traced to the White House. There has been no definite statement from the White House of the President's attitude towards the matter, but in generali zations in several speeches which the President has recently made, it would be easy to infer that he was whole-heartedly for disarmament That this is not so is indicated by a speech of Secretary Weeks in which he touches on the question of disarmament. While not put out as the policy of the ad ministration, it would be folly to presume that the Secretary at this time would touch on the matter without reflecting the views of the President. It is perfectly evident from the Secre tary's statement that he is not for disarmament, at least not in a practical way. Avowing an utter horror of war with the con ventional wish for its effacement from so-called civilization, with a fine gesture he pushes it far into the future with the statement: 'Worldwide disarmament must come as the result of an international agreement and must be done simultaneous ly. Prudence would not permit our disarming while others hold weapons in their hands." Secretary Weeks' idea seems to be to bring about a super ideal condition where by world wide understanding, at a given moment, all armament would be done away with. While as an ideal this is attractive, it seems much less practical than the idea advocated by Senator Borah of gradual disarmament, leaving the relative armed strength of the great nations as at present while the disarmament process was going on, which was also the fundamental idea of the disarmament provision of the League of Nations. It is to be feared that if the Weeks ideal were to be fol lowed, that in trying to attain the superlative, we should miss, at least for a long time, acquiring the comparative. The Borah adaptation of the League of Nations plan for gradual disarma ment as applied to naval matters has not only the advantage of making possible an actual start towards the ideal, but it is understood that both Japan and England are willing and anx ious to enter into such an agreement. NEED OP A CLOSED SEASON F THINGS keep on as they have begun, tho administration JL will have to declare a closed season on speechmaking in England. But a few weeks ago the new Ambassador to the Court of Saint James, our own "Colonel George"', in his enthus iasm "spilled the beans", and President Harding and his asso ciates have been trying ever since to explain the mishap away. Now, following hard on this. Secretary of the Navy Denby will evidently be explaining for some time what caused Admiral Sims to break loose and cavort all over the reservation, figura tively speaking, in a speech before the English Speaking Union in London. Regardless of the subject matter of the speech and the ac curacy or nonaccuracy of the statements and sentiments re flected in it, the choice of language and literary taste of Admiral Sims' remarks was not of a sort that inspire pride on this side of the Atlantic. This is not the first time Sims has made a bad break and furnished a Republican administration with an opportunity to efface the impression. In 1910 at the Guildhall, London, he made what came to be known as the "blood and water- speech, for which he was reprimanded by President Taft. He was in constant hot water with Secretary Daniels and made most dis agreeable criticisms of his naval associates in the late war. If this sort of thing keeps up, it may be necessary, before allowing prominent officials to go abroad, to provide them with muzzles. A WARNING RESPONSIBILITY almost always has a sobering effect and opens men's eyes to facts which otherwise they are in clined to overlook. Such seems to have been the effect of the responsibility of a cabinet position in the case of Postmaster General Hays, judging from his speech yesterday before the Republican national committee, which had mot to choose his successor. His remarks contained an unmistakable note of warning. A seven million plurality", he is reported to have said, "is large, but it is not an alibi for the mistakes, negligences or ex travagances of misgovernmcnt Responsibility carries with it accountability in running the government." Mr. Hays has been credited with being one of the most acute observers of public sentiment in the Republican party. It is evident that he has sensed what is in store for his party, providing it does not quickly meet the expectations of the peo ple who placed it in power. His Republican associates in the government, and in Congress especially, will be wise to heed his suggestion. The -Legislature of the State, j yesterday, the public can now JVXE 9. 1921 having adjourned indefinitely, feel it is more or less out of What Others Say LVXCmOVG MADE UNPOPULAR i (From the St. louis Post-Dispatch) II Missouri wants to be spared the humiliation of another lynchins and another investigation fiasco, such as occurred recently at Bowling Green, it might do worse than pattern Its preventive effort after an Illinois law which has taken lynching- out of the category of popular pastimes by making its subject to certain hazards which the most enthusiastic lynchers are unwilling to incur. This law, enacted in 19 05, provides that "if any person shall be taken from the hands of a sheriff, or his deputy, having such person in cus tody, and shall be lynched it shall be prima facie evidence of failure on the part of such sheriff to do his duty and upon the fact being made to ap pear to the governor, he shall publish proclamation declaring the office of such, sheriff vacant, and his office .shall thereby and thereafter imme diately be vacated." Although, against the presumption of neglect of duty, the sheriff may be reinstated if it appears that he has done all in his power to protect the life of his prisoner, the question of reinstatement is unlikely to arise, be cause when a sheriff has done all in his power to protect a prisoner lynchings do not occur. The last man in tho world tfc:vt lynchers want to meet is a sheriff who will do all in his power to protect a prisoner. When Illinois sheriffs were only called upon to defend their prisoners they were not enthusiastic about it and lynching was easy and safe, but since they have had to defend their jobs as well as their prisoners, lynch ing has practically gone out of fash ion in that state. The valor of mobs has always been in ration to the com placency of sheriffs and with the sub sidence of complacency valor like wise has vanished. HE M l .ST BE SORRY HE SPOKE (From the New York Times) If the Mayor of Somers Point had been wiser he would have refrained from calling the attention of all and sundry to the fact that bathers on his beach could dress as they pleased. What he said in the interview that has caused him much trouble and is going to cause more was sensible enough in itself, but it caused to be exciting what hitherto had not been exciting at all, and brought to bear on the bathers of Somers Point eyes that saw something between guilt and impropriety where the previous ob servers had seen only innocence and beauty. For it was not a change in bathing suits that the Mayor announced, but the continued permissibility of gaxj ments long permitted there without the giving of any offense. If the Mayor had kept silent, this idealistic state of affairs presumably would have continued. Now the suggestion of evil has been made and of course the evil will be there. The liberty that was unconscious will become conscious license, and the chances are that Somers Point will be obliged, like other beach resorts, to ban the "one-piece suit," in which the admir able art of swimming can be most comfortably and safely practiced, and subject its once happy and guileless bathers to the slavery and danger of superfluous clothing when in the wa ter. Curiously enough, nowhere are the professional swimmers, whether women or men. either expected or re quired to dress otherwise than best fits them for the display of their strength and skill. Thus clothed, they excite only admiration a:ji emulation, and they are pictured full length in the newspaper supplements without arousing protests by anybody. Why the amateurs are not equally free to dres3 as swimmers should dress is a question hard to answer as hard as it is to teil why the Mayor of Somers Point could not let very well alone, but had to indulge in a most injudi cious form of advertising. nOTORINC BOTH (From the Boston Post) Testimony in a suit involving some of the actions of the man who was once the Crown Prince of Germany show that in the terrible days before Verdun, when the eldest son of th "War Lord" was sending thousands of poor fellows to rutile slaughtet against the fortress, he was well be hind the lines revelling and carousing with women of easy virtue and with his own worthless boon companions. That sort of thing was suspected at the time, and, indeed, more than merely hinted at by German prison ers themselves. So the world is fur nished with no surprise by the stories. One feature is new, however. A wit ness said that the Crown Prince nam ed all his dogs after French generals. The intent of that was clear enough. The Crown Prince in his heavy way cherished the idea that he was insulting the commanders of the enemy by bestowing their names up on his canines. But he was not. On the contrary, ho was honoring both his dogs and the French generals. The latter were gallant namesakes, while the former were loyal faithful friends, as all dogs are. The younger Wiihe'im made a characteristic mis- A STRAW FROM CHICAGO (From the Evening World) The Republican Party of Chicago represents Republicanism in about the same measure that the Democrat ic Party of ICew York represents democracy. So perhaps it is not jus. tifiable to consider the repudiation of Republicanism in Chicago as a rebuke to Republican do-nothingism in Washington. But in the decisive defeat admin istered to Mayor Thompson's faction Monday the deciding power was crea. ited to the vote of the women. In the November elections the women were more Republican than the men. They even swallowed Thompsonism. If they have now turn ed on the Thompson candidates it is a hopeful indication of Independence. It should also be a warning to the President and Congress to deliver the goods or answer for BBgulta Every independent in politics Is a menace to the party in power which fails to live up to its pledges. Pi IK LAST WOIiJD (Prom the Philadelphia ledger) What is tho last word in the Eng lish tongue? The compilers of thi monumental dictionary begun in 1S84 by Murray and the English Philologi cal Society have decided that for the present, at any rate, it is "zyzt." This, j it seems, is a Kentish dialect word coming down from the fourteenth dictionary goes back to 1200 A. D. You never can tell what the scient ists will do to a language. Whenever there is a new science or when there are new phases of an old science a family of unfamiliar words clamors for admission to tho word-books For a long time the lexicographers were content to quit and be paid off when they had reached a group of terms such as "zymology" and "zymurgy" that have to do with the science of fermentation. Then along came somebodv with a genus of Indian dragon-fly as a claim ant for final honors, and all the other words in the dictionary had to rise in place and make obeisance before the brilliant intruder "zyxomma " Now that the Oxford philologians ave made this hitherto conclusive insect bite the dust, there will be struggles of various arts and sciences to go the archiac Kentish interloper one better. What business has the fourteenth century to come "horains, in" on tho twentieth, anyway? How can we hope to jazz up the language to suit the flapper and the tired busi ness man if we have to hark rjack to ,he obsolescent locution of the cen tury of Geoffrey Chaucer? "Zyzt" Is a heathen word, anyway. It is no word fit to bring up the rear of a long and glittering cavalcade of language. It is a poor fish to bring up from the bottom of a well of English undented. It sound like the preliminary hiss of a bottle of ginger ale. Such a word has no right to x-zyt BTJKIiESON DOCTRINE (From the New Tort Evening Post) When Postmaster General Hays re versed the action of hi3 predecessor by restoring second-class mailing priv ileges to certain radical publications there was a general concensus of in telligent opinion favorable to this re turn to sanity. No less general will be the disagreeable surprise with which the public has learned of the decision by the Court of Appeals or the District of Columbia upholding Mr. Burleson's policy. The specific case before the court was that of the New York Call, and it was held that Jie matter appearing in this journal violates Section 211 of the Amended Criminal Code. The article quoted, rt was argued, tended "to incite arson, murder, or assassination," and, there fore, "this poUuted matter" is denied the usual postal privileges. Appar ently, however, the Call may continue to accomplish what William ULamar, formerly Solicitor to the Post Office Department, calls "the destruction of society," provided it pays more for the privilege than second-class rates. This absurdity is inevitable once any departure is made from the sound principle argued by Mr. Hays. If a publication is mailable at all, it should have the same rights as its competit ors. If not, it should be excluded en tirely and not merely penalized by paying higher rates for the circula tion of ideas unacceptable to the ma jority of the American people. If, as this decision indicates, radical opin ions are to be classified as obscene or seditious in themselves, without any referenoe to the particular circum stances of each case, then the lojio of the situation demands the pros-j-tion of all persons professing such opinions and the suppressions of their publications. The withdrawal of mail ing privileges Is abviously an inade quate precaution against dangers such as the Court of Appeals has conjured up in its judgment against the Call. Postmaster General Hays has fortun ately shown himself a man of saneiy liberal views in such matters, and we may assume he will he slow to exer cise the oppressive powers which this decision confers upon him- But a regrettable precedent has been estab lished which others may feel com pelled to invoke. COr.. HESTER BEAD. New York, Jun 9 Col. William Hester, president of the Brooklyn Eagle died at his home today. He had worked his way up to the presidency of the newsp&ner trom. office box. SCHOOL DAYS LpME CAMPER, SPARE THAT TREE! (From the Boston Globe) When clerks in the automobile reg istrar's office and In the forestry ser vice compare notes, they find the number of licenses and the number of forest fires are Increasing about pro portionately a disclosure which re fuses to settle down as an amusing who know something about wooded country have been sounding this warning for a long time. They foresaw that the automobile party whisking through the country roads would have no conception of the in vestment in time, in knowledge, in painstaking care and in patience rep resented by trees. The man from the city or town who drops into a glade with a camping kit has none of the experience and training of the old woodsman, who, if not a Druid and a tree worshipper, is always a crank about trees. And the novice in the woods, before the time of the auto mobile, had to be careful, to save his own skin, for he oould not get away rapidly in an emergency. A match thrown carelessly, a ciga. rette flipped into dry leaves, a camp fire left burning any of these may furnish the spark that sets the flames sweeping over the forest floor. The young growth is ruined, the older trees are left standing scar red with shriveled leaves, the soil is ash-covered and impoverished, and nature's hundred years of work is destroyed. A moment of thought lessness means hundreds of acres of black devastation. Reports indicate that the season of forest fires is here. Not everyone knows how to grow trees, but every one can keep from setting them afire. The best way to stop forest fires is not to set them. LEGION HEAD IS KILLED TODAY (Continued from Page One.) Mr. Galbraith suffered a fractured skull and died within a few minutes. Foreman, who is a national commit teeman for the state of Illinois and chairman of the National Finance Committee, suffered a fracture of the skull and injuries to his back and shoulders. He is in a serious condi tion at the City Hospital. Ryan, Chairman of the American ism Committee of the legion, was badiy bruised and -lacerated but his injuries are not serious, physicians say. Ryan, who was driving the ma chine, said he had been driving rapid ly from the Indianapolis Country club north of the city in order to reach the Union Station in time for Mr. Gal braith and Mr. Foreman to board a train for Chicago. He reduced his speed to about twenty miles an hour, he said, just before reaching the point where the accident occurred. Col. Galbraith was elected leader of the American Legion at its convention in Cleveland last September. He was born in Watertown, Mass., May 6, 1874. During the war he commanded the 147th infantry. In civilian life. Col. Galbraith was head of the West ern Paper Goods ccmpany of Cincin nati and was a former president of the Cincinnati Business Men's club and of the Rotary club of that city. Colonel Foreman Is a Chicago law yer, who, before the war. was an offi cer of tho Illinois National Guard and who served overseas as commander of American troops. Washington. June 9 President Harding today sent a message of con dolence to Mrs. F. W. Galbraith. widow of the commander of the American Legion wiho was killed in an automobile accident at Indianapo lis today. The President's message follows: "Mrs. F. W. Galbraith, Jr.. "Indianapolis. Ind. "Please know of my sympathy in the great and sudden sorrow which has come to you. It was my fortune to know Col. Galbraith not alone as the National Commander of the American Legion, but as a fellow citi aen of Ohio, and I have higtoly valued his commanding personality, his tireless deal and his intenfee devotion to country and his companions in arms.

Shark Catch Makes New And Vast Industry Victoria, June 9 With the supply of raw material unlimited, an indus try new to this country is flourishing at Parker Island, between Galiano and Mayne Islands on the Gulf of Georgia. It is tlhe business of catch ing sharks, and a week's catch at the beginning of May ran to SO, with an average weight of over a ton each. Nelson MacDonald of this city, who operated tho first shark -catching ma dhinery on the island, declares there will never he a shortage as there are millions in the waters surrounding tho island. "In fact thf further north you go the more sharks you will find and from here to Alaska are their feeding grounds," Mr. MacDon old said. "Taking them from the bottom of the sea is automatic. Nor way has a hundred of such industries. The only real hook for catching them, which works on a swivel, comes froim there and the so-called cod liver oil, which invades the markets of the world, is reey shark liver oil. manufactured in Norway." Nothing is wasted in a shark plant. Thexe is no finer fish-meat than that made from the bodies of the sharks. As a fertilizer it is su perior to dog ifish. The head of the shaTk is full of glue of a highly val uable quality and the lins arc a much prized Chinese, food deltoacy. Or ientals hero paying as much ;is $3 a poTrr.d for it.

Some of Mr. Redfields more striking sta tements were as follow;: "Does the trouble that sadly affects our southern states originate at borate ? Is it because American mills cannot consume our cotton that the warehouses of the south are choked and there is serious thought of re d tici n g this year's crop area? Do -mestic farts have, of course, a, partial bearing on the matter but only a par tial tone The ultimate reason for the decline in cotton lies in the ina bility of the great mills of Furope to coi 'iime, and passes on a step be yond them to the inability of those to whom in turn they look tn buy their product. So tho poverty of tho peasant an southeastern Europe or in other and more distant lands is re flected in the partial IcfAeness of Ger man, French and English cotton mills and reacts through -them into the planters home in Oeorg-ia and through him to the negro hands upon his es tate.
