TREATY FIGHT' IS 'CENTRED Oil SHANTUNG Forces of Administration Rallied to' Prevent Adoption of Kiao Chau Amendment. \ i bi Washington. ? Restoration of Shan tung Province to China will be recom mended by the Senate Committee oa Foreign Relations. Action was taken by the committee nullifying transfer of German rlgh:3 in Shantung to Japan. Wherever tl e word "Japan" appears in those sec tions of the treaty covering the trans fer they are stricken out and "China" substituted. This has the effect of confirming China in the possession of all concessionary rights held by Ger many at t lie termination of the war. The motion to thus amend the three sections of the pending peace treaty dealing with German rights in China was made by Senator Lodge. It was adopted by a vote of 9 to 8. Semi tor McCumber voted with the seven Democratic members of the committee in the negative. Senators Shields Hitchcock and Pittman were not pres ent, but under a previous agreement their votes were recorded against the Lodge motion. This is the first formal vote on any feature of the peace treaty taken by * the Foreign Relations Committee. Elimination of the Shantung trans fer from China to Japan constitutes a textual amendment to the body <>f the treaty. If the action of the For eign Relation Committee is approved by the senate, tiie treaty must go back to the peace conference at Versailles. It would reopen consideration of the fenfire instrument. The "mild reservationlsts," and sev eral of the senators advocating drastic reservations, such as Mr. Lodge sup ports, are expected to form an align ment with administration senators in an effort to defeat the Shantung amendment. 5|tj5i4;4'4:,41-'!i4'4l414;4;4;4;4;4;-4? 41 Make-Up of American Force & 4?

Action of the Japanese cabinet to have Manchuria and Mongolia excluded from the proposed Chinese consor tium is regarded as showing the government's weakness in face of the militarists' demands. The seven "mild reservation ists" on the Republican side and half a dozen wavering Democrats hold in their hands the fate of the Shantung amendment to the peace treaty.

"There are many of these border line cases," Mr. Barnes said. "We are not certain whether the man is hold :ng up supplies or not, in these cases, but we do know that he has large -stores of foodstuffs which must not be held for periods of scant and no pro duction. We impress on ther- dealers fhe fact that conditions at present are not normal; that if he was accustrmed ro hold supplies for ten months in nor mal times, he should be willing to aid n relieving Hie present critical situa ?ion by letting them go far more quick |y "All the dealer- we have approached this way have eriressed a willingness to dispose of their holdings without delay We feel that circula'.'on, while not as spectacular, will be more help, ful in solving the present problem than prosecution.

What is the best way to reduce the aigh coat of living? "Work and save" is the answer gir sn by the Federal Reserve Board in a letter written by its governor, W. P, 3. Harding, to the Banking Commit' :ee of the United States senate. The :ommittee had under consideration the proposal to reduce the volume of aioney in circulation. Governor Hard ing opposes this plan, holding that it will not afford the relief expected. "The Federal Reserve Board be lieves" says Governor Harding in his '.etter, "that any currency legislation at this time is unnecessary and unde sirable, and would suggest that wheth sr viewed from an economic or finan cial standpoint, the remedy for the present situation is the same, namely, to work and to save; to work regular ly and efficiently in order to produce and distribute the largest possible volume of commodities, and to exer cise reasonable economies in order that money, goods and services may be devoted primarily to the liquida tion of debt and to the satisfaction to the demand for necessities, rather than to indulgence in extravagances or the gratification of thp desire for luxuries." During the last two years there has undoubtedly taken place a certain amount of credit expansion, Governor Harding shows, and this In the cir cumstances connected with the financ ing of the war was inevitable. But it will be corrected as the securities issued by the government for war purposes are gradually absorbed by in vestors. This expansion of credit is equal to the difference, Governor Harding says, between the total war expenditures of the government and the total amounts raised by the gov ernment through the medium of taxa tion and from the sale of its . bonds and other obligations so far as they were paid for out of the savings of the people. He does not believe that any reliable estimate of this differ ence can be made, but he is positive that, whatever it Is, it will be grad ually absorbed through future savings for the reason that bank3 are lending and may always be expected to lend freely on the government bonds de posited as collateral. The principal cause of price ad vances just before and during the per iod of the war was the need of the governments of the allied nations for all kinds of commodities and for im mediate delivery in large volume, and the "competition of this, buying by governments with purchases by pri vate individuals who failed to contract their expenditures at a rate commen surate with the growing expenditures of these governments." One of the features of the post-war period, through which the nation is now passing and which has been marked by rising prices, is the gen eral relaxation of war-time practice of personal economy. This has resulted in an increased demand for food and clothing and other commodities by many persons who during the war practiced a more or less rigid econ omy in their personal purchases. Also, it must be borne in mind that they are not only buying at market prices but are buying in competition with the export demand. In addition, large ly increased wages and incomes dur ing the last five years have developed a demand for many commodities which are not of real necessity. This nat urally has diverted labor and raw and manufactured materials from essen tials to non-essentials, contributing no pmall part to the trend of increasing costs. ? o . Midsumer madness seems to have seized upon the world,wiith "strikes, disorders and disturbances every where. But in this country the re action is bound to come in the direc tion of saner thought by the people and readjustment of conditions by lawful and legitimate methods. The seeds of Bolshevism are being wafted here from Europe, but they will not fall upon the same fertile soil as in that war-torn continent.5 ?

As an answer to the question, "How Can I Save Money?" the Savings Di vision of the Treasury Department has compiled an interesting and helpful pamphlet entitled "How Other lopi-; Get Ahead," For individuals and families whoae incomes are le3s than $5,000 a year t.Uis pamphlet offers a number of en lightening suggestions as to tha dis bursement of incomes of variou: amounts from $15 a week upward. No only does the material furnish a ready answer to the problem of expenses but it affords an authentic source ol information as to living costs. The figures were compiled from records o!s official government investigations intc the several subjects and may ba re garded -as up to date and accurate. This material makes possible a new attack in the movement to make thrift a national characteristic and to foster the habit of "Save First ? Spond Afterward." It will interest people In saving more money bv showing them how much other people find it possiLL to save and also by showing them how they can cut down the cost of living comparing their costs with aV&rage costs at the same income. The Savings Division suggests that an excellent way to drive home the truths of the budget system is to have the schedules discussed at school and taken home by the children for con sideration by the families. Anothar method is to organize a house-to-houie canvass through committees of wo men who will bring the budgets to the attention of. families and secure their agreement to study their owd situation. Saving and spending budgets have been prepared to meet local condi tions at a number of points, and much interest in the application of the bud gets to the campaign is being mani fested in sections of the country where the National Thrift Campaign is being carried out successfully. LEPERS SET SPLENDID EXAMPLE IN SAVINGS ? Colony of Unfortunates in Farawaj Hawaii Buys War Savings Stamps At $62 Per Capita. Recent reports from Honolulu con tain an interesting and unusual les son in thrift which may be consld&red a* record for the states to attempt. Sales of War Savings and Thrift Stamps among the Inmates of the Pen ikese Island Leper Colony during July amounted to $62 per capita. Alto gether 32 purchasers of these securi ties took a total of $1,984 of stamps, When it is considered that this amount is far more than the per capi ta quota for the United States it la apparent that the optimism of thesa lepers, despite their station in life, is little less than'remarkable. Up to date the total sales of War Savings and Jhrifi Stamps in Hawaii is more than $2,020,000, or more than "$20,000 in excess of its quota." The faith that moves mountains ia the faith that gets a steam shovel in stead of an old hoe. Labor saving is what you want. It means money sav ing, too, for War Savings Stamps. Spend a little less than you earn?? it's a sure road to success. Put your savings in War Savings Stamps. Thrift helped to win tha war. It will enable us to enjoy the fruits of victory also. o Farm for Sale Having decided to quit farming I will offer for sale my farm of 210 acres on Mossy Creek, Va.
