A shipment not long ago of

firms calls attention to another
by the war and incidentally discloses what will probably be
come another braneh of agriculture. During the last couple
J decades, bark of the caseara bush has become considerably
important in the drug business and there has grown up a large
demand for it. Previous to
the world's supply was obtained from Japan, Germany and the
United States. Of course when the war began the German
supply was cut off, and as a result great inroads were made
on the supplies in this countrv, found principally in the states
of "Washington and Oregon. Careless drtilers thinking only of
the momentary profits practically exterminated the bush within
easy access of transportation in

INVITATIOXS.
- The proposals for a disarmament conference have now
reached the point where formal invitations will undoubtedly
be issued soon, all of the five countries who are expected to
i confer with the United States, having signified their willing
ness to take part in such a conference. No exception to any
of the terms of the conference, as outlined by this country,
. were made with the possible exception of Japan who signified
willingness to consider only the disarmament proposition leav-
ing some question about the special problems affecting the Pa
i ciflo and the Far East.
It is not strange that Japan may want a little more infor
i mation with regard to the proposed discussion of the Far
I Eastern questions before she commits herself. No other nation

that she should wish to 'leave herself a little leeway while de
termining just what the "other , powers had in their minds to
accomplish in Eastern affairs.
While it may make no difference in tne -final result it
would seem that had President

to follow later the possibility of misunderstanding and dead
lock would have been very materially reduced. It is not dif-
ficult to realize that it would have been much easier to secure
an all round agreement to decrease armament if that were the

unanimous agreement on all the complicated matters connected
with the Pacific and the Far East.

NEXT MOVE JAPAN'S.
Washington, July 16 The . next
move in the disarmament game is
Japan's, it appeared today.
The United States, it is understood.
has made answer to the Japanese in
quiry concerning the scope of Presi
dent's Harding's suggested disarma
ment conference, and has informed
the leaders of the oriental nation that
the question of scope is one which is
to be decided by the conferring na
tions and not by the inviting nation,
or any one nation.
Reports from Paris that the dis
armament commission of the League
of Nations is apparently disposed to
defer action pending the conterence
proposed by this nation, were received
with satisfaction in official circles for
it has been suggested that Japan
might express a desire to let the pro
posed conference go by the boards
on grounds that it was a member of
the League of Nations, which had al
ready started disarmament proceed
ings.
Secretary of State Hughes and Am
bassador Shidhara have exchanged
views on the forthcoming parley and
it is understood that the Japanese am
bassador has been advised that he
may inform his government that the
United States has no intention of
drafting that agenda for the confer
ence nor does it seeK to lorce any
policies upon the conferring powers,
The administration holds that tne
program for the conference should be
outlined through negotiations between
the invited powers and It is" under
stood that these negotiaions are now
in progress in an informal way. In
quiries which Japanese has made of
England and of the United States,
have opened the way for an inter
change of views, which should assure
Japan that there is to be no attempt
to enforce decision on specinc ques
tions which are not of interest to all
powers concerned.
Suggestions of fear from certain
Japanese quarters, that the United
States will attempt to bring before
the conference questions which Japan
believes concern only the United
States and Japan, were not sub
stantiated by official comment here.
It was pointed out that the Presi
dent has invited the Allied powers to
discuss general principles and that
only those questions which effect all
the nations can be properly laid be
fore the conference.
Japan's View
Tokio, July 15 (Delayed) Sup
porters of President Harding s pro
posal lor a disarmament conterence
expressed the opinion today that such
conference would interrupt ana
perhaps block entirely Japanese mili
tary activity in Siberia. It is charg
ed by political opponents of the Hara
administration that Japan is illegally
holding Vladivostok and other places.
White the diplomatac . advisory
council has announced that Japan will
ixarticioate in the proposed disarma
ment conference, sucn participation is
opposed by some of the military leaa
ers. They profess to see in disarma
ment a serious obstacle to Japanese
plans in Asia.

who has just returned from Siberia,
where he investigated conditions in
the Far East Repuiblic, will make a
personal report to Secretary of State
Hughes.
The investigator refused to say
whether or not he wad found that
Japan is negotiating for a treaty with
the Far Eastern Republic It is possi
ble that the report of the Commer
cial attache to tho American Secretary
of State, may have some bearing upon
the proposed disarmament ana oar
East conference.
Count Ozakl, leader of the disarm
ament movement in Japan, declared
today that Japan should take part in
the disarmament conference.
"We have everything to gain from
such a meeting," said Count Ozaki. "I
think it was a mistake, however, to
invite China."

-"In another instance a prominent
man received approximately one
half of his income as salary from a
corporation of which he was presiden1
and of which corporation he owned
practically all the stock. The cor.
pora,tion took this salary as a deduc
tion and a necessary expense; the
man himself entirely omitted to re
port this sala ry, never thinking that
the corporation's return would be
checked against his individual return.
Manipulations of inventory are not
infrequently found and these can at
wavs be checked accurately by the
field examiners of the bureau and no
business of any size can keep accu
rate books and at the same time man
ipulate inventories. Some tax payers,
evidently are of the belief that they
can hire unscrupulous accountants
who reconstruct their books, and
then if the fraud is discovered blame
it all on the 2iccountants, to whom
they usually pay large fees.
"In many instances field examiners
have discovered that tax payers keep
two sets of books, one set accurately
setting forth the status of the busi
ness and the other set fraudulently
setting forth their Income, and merely
kept for the purpose of defrauding
the government It is safe to say that
in nine out of ten of these latter cases
the fraud is discovered within a short
time after it is perpetrated."

necessary. My proposition tendered
your office on behalf of the city, is to
build a section of roadway from a
point about opposite the Fairfield
County home on Westport avenue to
connect with Springwood avenue run
ning parallel with Westport avenue,
leading into Norwalk center.
"Such a change would permit of
easy approach, abolish the danger,
and be a great benefit to the travel
ing public That this is the most
dangerous point in the highway be
tween New York and the eastern Con
necticut boundary, is unquestioned.
"May. I anticipate your cooperation
in the removal of this condition? I
shall be pleased to have an expres
sion of your view on this matter at
your earliest convenience."
