RETURN OF TURKS TO EUROPE
OUTSTANDING EVENT OF LAST YEAR
International Situation Still Somewhat Tense, Al
though Less Troublous Many Problems Yet
Remain to Be Solved.
By FKAXK C1HHLTON,

Xew York. Dec. 30. There was a
lessening of turbulence, if not of ten
sion, in Europe during 1922. but the
end of the year stil-1 sees manv acute
international questions pending. rco
new wars were begun, and the year
witnessed the end of two minor con
flicts .the struggle between Greece
nnd Turkey in Asia Minor and tnat
between Spain and the Riff tribesmen
in Morocco. Both had been in pro
gress about two years.

deprived of his high and holy office

"The Rouen duck." according to
supplanted by the new covenant at
Lausanne, the Turks had been de
prived of all the European soil they
formerly held.
Constantino Exiled.
Although this war had been start
ed before Constantine returned to the
Greek throne in December. 1920, from
his exile, in Switzerland, he and bis
ministers were held responsible for
the collapse. Constantine was forced
to abdicate and half a dozen of his
ministers were tried, condemned and
shot.
Prince Andrew, Constantine's broth
er, was tried, but owing to the pro
tests which poured into Greece from
all Europe clemency was shown and
the military tribunal of the Greek
Revolutionary Committee sentenced
him to life-long exile instead of death.
vnon the ISear East peace con
ference convened at Lausanne on No
vember 13 there appeared every, pros
pect of a final settlement of the Near
East, but the conference grew into
a dead: rk and then the Russians en
tered with demands regarding the
Dardanelles which threatened to
wreck it forthwith. The Russians
went even further than the Turks in
demanding Turkish concessions on the
Turkish Straits.
Would Close Straits.
The common Russo-Turkish de
mand was that the Dardanelles should
be closed to' warships of all nations
but Turkey; that the Turks should be
allowed to fortify them but that they
should be open to the world's com
merce. The L'nited States participated in the
Xear East Peace Conference, show
ing more activity than at any other
international gathering since the
Paris Peace Cenfernce.
Two conferneces were held in tn
effort to settle the Russian problem
the first at Genoa and the second
at The Hague. Both were fruitless.
Under the Lloyd George regime
Great Britain maintained a policy
of moderation toward both Germany
and Russia, which dis-ploased Franee
very much and brought the two coun
tries to the verge of an open rupture
many times.
Lloyd George Resigns
Tn October the Lloyd George Cab
inet resigned. A general election was
hold in Britain on November 20, and
a Tory government, headed bv An
drew Bonar Law. as Premier. " came
into office. The newly-elected Brit
ish Parliament convened on Novem
ber 26 and immediately- enacted the
Irish Constitution bill. In the mean
time Bonar Law and his colleagues
were working out a new policv on
German indemnity and international
debts nearer to the French view
point. It appeared certain that lft3
would see an agreement between Bri
tain nnd France by which the British
would recall the Balfour reparations
note, reduce the size of the French
debt to Britain and in return receive
assurances that France would reduce
the omoiint of German indemnity to
assist German trade, industry and
nnance back to normal.

During 1922 the Cnited States re
'eveide the firs: payments upon war
loans advanced to the European Al
lies. Great Britain paid $100 000.000
in two installments of $50,000,000
each on account of back Interest upon
the $4,277,000,000 borrowed here In
war time. At the same time arrange
ments were made to send a commis-
treaties without delay; on February
- another special message urging
nactment of a ship subsidy bill; an
other fjnecial message on November
21 on the same subject, and finally
on Dec ember S, his annual message to
the regular session of the Sixty-Seventh
Congress "on the state of the
nation."
Th year was signalled by a steady
Administration drive to cut down ex
penses of Government all along the
line. The bee of economy has ap
plied the sting to every grea gov
ernmental agency, and far-reaching
economies have been ffecteded.
The annual budget of appropriations
for 1324, submitted to Congress this
month by President Harding, showed
a saving of nearly $200,000,000 over
the ipreceding year.
The .total estimated appropriations
needed for the conduct of the Gov
ernment in the next fiscal year was
shown to b; $3,369,106,523.19, but of
this sum, it was pointed out by the
President .approximately half repre

Few Assassinated
Despite the unrest throughout Eu
rope 4ni the activity of extremists
there Jyere few assassinations. The
most noted case of murder was the
killing of Dr. Walter Ratthenau, for
mer German Foreign Secretary, who
waa shot down in the streets of Ber
lin by three youths who afterward
committed suicide to avoid capture.
A notable feature of the year was
the growing strength of the counter
movement against Bolshevism. 'This
movement made its greatest strides in
Italy, where the Fascisti successfully
fought the Socialists and Communists
and gained control of the government.
The Fascisti is an extreme nationalist
organization that was created to com.
bat the lied movement In Italy. Pre
mier Mussolini is one of its founders,
and he has been granted dictatorial
powers at Rome until the end of 1923.
Xotahle Weddings
There were three marriages of in
ternational interest.
Princess Mary, only daughter of
King George and Queen Mary of Eng
land, was married at London to Vis.
count Laascelles.
Wilhelm von Hohenzollern. former
Kaiser and war lord of Germany, was
married to Princess Hermine of Reuss
at Doom.
King Alexander of Jugo-SIavia was
married to Princess Marie of Rumania
at Belgrade.
Conditions in Austria grew from
bad ' to worse throughout the year
and toward the end of 1922 it was ad
mitted by .the Viennese government
that the country was so near utter
collapse that it probably could not be
saved. The League of Nations then
authorized a loan. The loan question
ls at present hanging fire in the Brit
ish House of Commons. It is estimated
that $50,000,000 will be needed to re
store the Austrian government to any
semblance of solvency.

"I wish I could grasp the hand, of every citizen of the city and
say to each and every one. 'I wish you a Iiappy and prosperous New

toward its normal condition.
"I want to say that 1 shall contiue dur;ng the New Year to
fulfill my promise- to the people for good and e'ffienemt government
and if I've made any mistakes during the departing year I shall cer

DAILY NEWS
LETTER
By D.WTD M. CHI RCH,
(I. X. S. Staff Correspondent.)
London, Dec. 30. Parliament is
flirting with the delicte subject of
ADVANCEMENT
OF DETECTIVES
IS CONFIRMED
President of Police
Board Says Promo
tions Have Been De
served by Department
Members.
"The board believes that due to the
work these men have done and the
aid they have rendered to the de
tective department their services are
worthy of recognition and it is very
probable that, if th'? financial strain
is -not too much upon the city coffers
these men will be promoted to the
rank of detective sergeant."
This was the first statement iseuied
to the press by Presidnt Philo C. Cal
houn of the Board of Police Commis
sioners following his reappointment
to that board this morning by Mayor
Atwater.
For the subject of the interview
he chose the much discussed Bureau,
of Investigation, following a report
current this morning that provision
bad been made in the budget for the
promotion of these men. That the
promotions are slated and that the
only obstacle that can prevent the
men from receiving their long deserv
ed promotion would be the failure of
the Board of Apportionment to grant
the money was the gist of a further
statement issued by President Cal
houn. The men who are in line for pro
motion are Patrolmen W. A. Auger,
D. E. McPadden, D. A. Brolley, W
A. Foster, J. H. Doyle. M. J. Lamey,
T. M. McNamara, P. J. Muhpjjr, and
T. J. Maloney. Sergeant Michael Ar
nolsky, who is now in charge of the
bureau, will probably be promoted to
the rank of lieutenant.
The Investigation Bureau is a
branch of the Detective Department
and the men in the bureau have been
assigned to it for the past three years.
The city ordnance provides that any
patrolman doing plain clothes duty
for the period of one year, will be eli-
j sible for promotion to the rank of
Detective Sergeant. The Dromotiona
their stores at all times," he says.
The association beiieves that there
tare many drug stores being operated
by former saloon keepers and form
er bartenders, who feel they are safe
if they operate behind a drug sign.
Sale of drugs is a nuisance to these
places, the association contends, in
announcing a campaign of education
on an elaborate scale to acquaint the
public with the fact that patronizing
such places is dangerous. They are
run primarily for retailing "hooch"
and are not competent i handle
drugs. Partonizing them is a con
stant danger to the patron, the asso
ciation says.

in salary, an amount equivalent to
:ess than $2,000. and, there is a gen
eral opinion that this should be raised
to at least 1.000 a year, or approxi
mately $5,000.
Although the present salary hardly
pays the expenses of a member of
the House of Commons, there is somo
reluctance on the part of the leaders
to increase their own salaries at the
present time, when there is grave un
rest throughout the country because
of unemployment.
Any move to increase salaries of
commoners will probably meet with
opposition from members of the La
bor Party, who will urge that at a
time when thousands of men are
walking the streets without work
Parliament can ill afford to spend
the nation's money in increased Iegr
slative salaries. This will afford a
real test of the sincerity of the Labor
members, too. because of all mem
bers the Laborites are as a rule less
able to live upon their salaries. The
ccreat majority of the Labor mem
bers are men who have given up
their trades and businesses in order
to serve in the House of Commons,
and they find they are scarcely able
to live upon their salaries. Many or
hem have given up all attempts at
fulfilling some of the requisites of
members of Parliament. ( particularly
those aged old customs with regird
to dress. Ramsay MacDonald, th
Labor leader, appears in Commons
garbed in a baggy tweed suit and of
fers a striking contrast to Bonar
Law, who generally wears a cutaway
coat with the customary striped
trousers.
The. Labor members of the House
rJ Commons, as well as many other
m-embers w-ho are "new poor." really
need an increase in salary, but it Is
doubtful whether they will take it
until the present tinemployment dis
' ress has been reTeved.
"We are not campaigning against
bootlegging in general," Watson an
nounces. "We are simply seeking to
purge our own business of prohi
bition violations." To this end the
association plans to furnish evidence
of liquor violations to the police and
to follow up cases in court involving
druggists to see they are not pigeonholed.
Self-suTporting penitentiaries is the
hobby of Charles Brandon Booth,
president of the Prison Development
League and son of Maud Ballington
Booth . Under his plan of prison re
form the pententiaries will cease to be
a burden to the taxpayers of the
States. They will become self-supporting.
He advocates that the State prisons
be reorganized along industrial lines,
with crafts positions of varying pro
ficiency -available, with a scale of
wages, determined by skill, effective,
with a minimum of $4 daily to each
worker. Such a wage, he says, could
be paid the convicts without loss to
the State.

Oeorge M. Cobn i go'ng to appear
fad London in one of his own plays
and his first appearance ls being
awaited wt'h considerable interest.
Particular ineret attaches to the re
tention Cohan will eo.t from the Lon
don cr'tics.'who haven't sen any of ! son
bis work for some time. Of late the
London critics have been very harsi
wth American dramatist's and actors
and have spared no efforts to con
vince the people of their fair foggy
city that noth'ng ?ood in the theatre
can ever be expected to come out of
America. "Ragtime is the only art
the Americans have." the London
critics claim, and it rema'ns to ne
seen whether even Georsre M Cohan
can show them wares which they wMl
have to applaud- American motion
pictures make wonderful progress tn
London, probably because British pic
tures are so wretched, but American
drama has hsrd sledding, and th"
critics will applaud a mot. medicore
British production, while a good
American production is thoroughiy
dissected with a good deal of venom,
too.
The Ice Is broken. All England
seems to be wriring for the maga
zines and nev-snaners now. The In
troduction of Amr'can dollars Into
the coCers of English literary agents
is probably responsible. England
long knew that the Americans weren't
verv careful of their money, but they
never dreamed that they would pay
t'oo money for wr'ten word so
eisl'y. Now the discovery h been
made, almost everybody in ErgTancI
who has ever had his picture In the
papers feQls coalified to write unnn
any subec- in the world and to offer
it to American newspapers at .famu
l.ius prices.
Another feature of Booth's pro
