Cabinet Refuses, to Yield on 1 .... . Tap Allies preparing i-' Further Coercion for Germany. By EDWARD W. PICKARD. Ratification of the Colombia treaty, k a Mlnntit DUnotA AKA Tint DVnVa " iciunaui. ocumc, un many loud cheers in the United States. Democrats for years had urged the adoption of the pact as a virtual re pudiation of the acts of Theodore Roosevelt and John Hay In connection with the separation of Panama from Colombio. The Harding administra tion urged it, not on that ground, but because It believed this sop to Colom bia would help to restore amicable feelings toward the United States on the part of the Latin-American peo ples, and also because Americans wish to develop oil fields In Colombia. All but four of the Democratic senators voted for the treaty, presumably for their old reasons. Forty Republicans obeyed the behest of the administra tion, most of them because they hesi tated to break with It on an Important Issue so soon after the beginning of Mr. Harding's regime. Fifteen Repub lican senators refused to turn so squarely against the policy of their party and voted against ratification after putting up a strong fight, in the course of which they tried to amend the pact by provision tlrnt nothing in it should be regarded as a confession of wrongdoing by Roosevelt in the ac quisition of the Canal Zone. Colombia will now greedily seize the gifts made hei $25,000,000 and valuable privileges in the use of the Panama canal and gives practically nothing In return, not even assurance of fair treatment for our capitalists who may invest in her oil fields. If most of the money does not stick to the palms of the grafting politicians of Colombia there will be a complete re versal of custom. More Important, there is little reason to believe this treaty will lessen the hatred of the United States which is the prevailing sentiment throughout most of Latin America. This statement Is based on the opinions of men who are thor oughly familiar with the Latin-Americans. In pursuance of his policy of con ciliation President Harding delivered a happy address on Tuesday on the oc casion of the unveiling in New York, of a statue of Bolivar Jie Liberator. The day was the anniversary of both the Battle of Lexington and the open ing of the final campaign which re sulted in the independence of Vene zuela! Naturally the Monroe doctrine was the subject of the main part of the President's speech, and of it he said : "The doctrine proclaimed under Monroe, which ever since has been Jealously guarded as a fundamental of our own republic, maintained that these continents should not again be regarded as fields for the colonial en terprises of old world powers. "There have been times when the; meaning of Monroeism was misunder stood by some, perverted by others, and made, the subject of distorting propaganda by those who saw In it an obstacle to their own ambitions. "The history of the generations ifslnce that doctrine was proclaimed lias proved we never Intended it self- ishly; that we had no dream of ex ploitation. "On the other side, the history of the last decade certainly must have convinced all the world that we stand "willing to fight, if necessary, to pro Itect these continents, these sturdy PROTEST GREEK MONEY ISSUE 'International Financial Commissioners HoW That Such Action Is Viola tion of Law. Athens Protests against the Issu ance of 500,000,000 drachmas in paper money by the Greek National bank are eing framed for presentation to the Hellenic government by the inter national financial commission, which .exercises control of the public debt of young democracies, from oppression and tyranny." The government of the United States has decided that Gen. "Alfredo Zayas, candidate of the conservative popular coalition party, was elected President of Cuba last November and that nothing should be done to prevent the island congress from proclaiming him President Boaz Long, American minister to Cuba, communicated this decision to the Cubans and it was ex pected they would abide by It Our government also took further action In the Panama-Costa Rica dis pute, letting both those nations un derstand that the refusal of Panama to accept the White boundary award, insisted upon by the American govern ment must not be made the basis for the renewal of hostilities. Both these little republics, it Is understood, are mobilizing their forces and breathing fire. Salvador, Honduras and Guate mala, comprising the new Central American union, have assured Costa Rica of their support According to the Tokyo newspapers, the Japanese cabinet has decided that there is no reason to change Japan's policy on the Yap mandate because of the recent American note on the subject Public opinion in Japan is increasingly against any yielding In the controversy, and no one in the United States believes our administra tion will give an Inch. Official Infor mation has reached Washington that the conscription and universal mili tary training laws of Japan are being applied more rigidly, and that all Japanese officers stationed in the Pa cific islands south of the equator and In the East Indies have been recalled to Japan, and all Japanese between the ages of twenty-one and thirty seven without , previous service have been ordered to return to Japan for military training. Former Secretary of the Navy Daniels, in an address at Memphis, said: "America cannot surrender the Yap cables even if it should mean war with Japan. . . . No matter what it may cost, and that may be war, I cannot imagine that a peaceful settlement of the Yap situ ation with Japan will be found." All of this sounds rather warlike. But the allied powers in Europe seem inclined to side with the United States in the controversy, and reliable obeservers believe that if they do consent to exclude Yap from the Jap anese mandate, Japan will be forced to bow to such a decision. Fighting has broken out between the armies of north and south China, and it Is feared in Peking that it is the precursor of renewed civil war. The eight military governors of the Yangtse valley have combined against Gen. Chang Tsollng, war lord of the northern government and alleged ally of Japan and Semen off. Chang is sus pected of a scheme to restore the mon archy. Premier Lloyd George held a con ference during the week-end with Premier Briand of France concern ing the further coercive measures against the Germans to be adopted in case they , do not comply with the reparations demands on May 1 as they almost certainly will not do. What these measures will be is not yet known, but it Is reasonably sure that Great Britain will support France in the occupation of the Ruhr district The reparations commission ordered Germany to transfer the gold holdings of the German imperial bank to its Coblenz and Cologne branches as se curity for payment of reparations. This Germany refused to do. Berlin last week pleaded with Presi dent Harding to act as mediator in the reparation dispute, promising to pay what he might determine was Just The' president declined to act but said if Germany would formulate new proposals he would consider bring ing the matter to the attention of the allied governments. Premature, to say the least was the report of a week ago that the miners' federation of Great Britain had called ofT the strike. The story was based on a false cablegram. The transport and rail workers, indeed, did change their minds and decided not to quit work in sympathy, but the min Greece. The commission, it is under stood, holds that such action by the bank Is in vollatlon of the law of 1898, which vests in the commission the authority to limit circulation of paper money and the duty of protect ing the holders of Greek bonds. The commission will in its protests point out that the Sevres treaty, the document giving Greece the province of Thrace, Smyrna and other areas in which the Greek government Intends to issue new paper money, has not as yet been ratified, and that until such ers, though somewhat disconcerted by this split In the triple alliance, are still standing firm at . this writing. New proposals were made by the mine owners, but the federation de clared they were too vague to form a basis for negotiations. The miners as sert that their own present proposals are entirely clear a national wage board with a national tonnage levy to enable the poorer pits to pay the rates of wages agreed upon out of funds contributed through the levy by the miners and mine owners. The government, it Is said by well posted persons, is confident that it will be able to keep the nation's coal needs supplied even if the strika continues. There Is enough' coal on hand In England to last for three months, and plenty more to be ob tained from other countries. Twenty leaders of the British Prot estant church recently sent to the premier a memorial protesting against the disorders in Ireland. In replying to them Lloyd George made an im portant declaration. First, answering their allegations in order, he denied the existence of irregular forces which had no discipline; that there were unauthorized reprisals, and all other charges against the crown forces. He quoted figures showing that police and soldiers were punished for breaches of discipline and appealed for public support for the "sorely tried men who are trying to preserve order In a country given up to anarchy." He then dealt with the Sinn Fein in this manner: "The Sinn Fein rejected home rule and demanded in its place an Irish republic for the whole of Ireland. The Sinn Fein went further. It deliberate ly set to work to destroy conciliation and constitutional methods because it recognized that violence was the only method by which it could realize the republic. "If I thought there was a different policy, which would lead to a solu tion of our difficulties, I would not hesitate to adopt it however different it might be to the course the govern ment now Is pursuing. "The government of which I am at the head will never give way on the fundamental question of secession. So long, therefore, as the Sinn Fein de mands a republic and refuses to ac cept loyally, membership in the Brit ish commonwealth, coupled with the fullest home rule compatible to con ceding Ulster the same rights it claims for itself, the present evils will con tinue. I do not wish there to be any misunderstanding on that point" The Greeks and the Turkish nation alists have resumed operations In Asia Minor. The former, having reorgan ized their army, are carrying on an offensive on the Brusa front with Eskishehr as their main objective. The Turks are making a show of re sistance without really giving battle and meanwhile are usng most of their forces in an advance on Smyrna. At last reports they were only 60 miles from that city. The Kemalists, how ever, are not entirely happy, for they are beginning to realize the perfidy ff. their allies, the Russian Bolshevik!. The shamelessly faithless Reds are not giving the aid promised in the treaty, and are demanding from the Turks further concessions with regard to the settlement of Near East ques tions. The bootlegging industry of the United States was dealt a severe blow last week when the Canadian province of Ontario, by a majority of more than 150,000, voted, for the application of the Dominion law prohibiting the im portation' of liquor from' any province, state or country. There has been a steady stream of liquor smuggled into the United States from Canada, the amount brought in across the Detroit river alone being estimated at 1,000 cases a day. Much of this will now be stopped, and. what is brought across will be much more expensive. New York city is in agony these days because the new state prohibi tion law Is being enforced in the metropolis, which had come to con sider itself exempt from such laws that the rest of the country was sup posed to observe. The police there are feverishly active and great quantities of liquor have been confiscated. ratification takes place the imperial Ottoman bank controls the privilege of Issuing currency In those areas. Belief is expressed here that the government will not heed the commis sion's protests. It is pointed out in government cir cles that the allies permitted the Veni zelist government to issue 400,000,000 drachmas in currency in new terri tories in order to pay soldiers and meet other expenses and it is asserted the International commission cannot Ignore the precedent thoj established.

For almost two years I was almost a nervous wreck. I did not dare to leave the house or even go up town unless my husband went with me. I was afraid, to even cross the street and had a feeling of dread all of the time. "My stomach was weak and easily upset. For days at a time I would go without solid fodd. I could not rest at night to do any good and felt tired and worn out all of the time. Some days I could hardly drag myself across the room and was so weak and miserable I was ready to give up.

Her art was really very bad, nor the maiden unaware of it She had three suitors and she was sore perplexed until one day suitor No. 1 said, "1 shall be frank. Your art is very bad. but I love you." She dismissed him.' Suitor No. 2 said, "Your art is very good.'' The maiden said to him, "Prithee, sir, do you not agree with me that in places it is a bit er crude?" He answered the maiden. iow that you speak of it, I agree with you that in places it is a bit er crude." And she cast him forth from her father's threshold. Suitor No. 3 spoke unto the maiden In this wise: "Your art is perfect It delights my soul. It is true art with out flaw. I love you."

"There Is certainly a grave mia apphehension concerning men's wed ding rings which r I think should be c'.eared up at once," said a Broadway Jeweler, according to the New York Sun. "I have found that people have a feeling that unless a man wears a wedding ring fashioned something tike that worn by the woman, then aorne tli'ng is wrong. In fact I have learned that most people do not even know a man is married when he wears any kind of ring other than a wedding ring on his fourth finger, left hand. "But that's a fact Where the types of rings worn by brides are somewhat similar a man may wear anything from a signet to a real wedding ring on his left hand and still be in per- ' feet propriety. As a matter of fact, most men dislike -the plain wedding ring and prefer something like a sig net Brides aren't letting their hua bands off without equality In rings aa much as. anything else nowadays and the bridegrooms are wearing all kinda to satisfy their wives' desire in the matter." i While the father's intentions are good, the sou usually tumbles into the same old pitfalls.
