JOHNSTON FURNITURE CO. ; 162 NORTH MAIN STREET BEAD THE NEW3 SCIMITAR CLASSIFIED ADS. Senator Cummins Aserts U. S. Did Not Have Single Friend in Europe. ' WASHINGTON. Sept. !. When President Wilson ended his work at the Paris conference "the United States had not a friend In Europe, Asia or Africa ana our brilliant service In the was waa a Iiikw t forgotten in the storm of pro- iei wnion lonowea mm as ne sauea for home," Senator Cummins. Republican. of Iowa, declared today in an address In the senate, attacking- the league of nations covenant. "The only thing the president brought witn him which was Joyfully received In America ty multitude of good people, Senator Cummin said, "was a covenant for a league of nations, and this only because these people believed, many of them without inquiry, that the league of nations would bring peace to a war weary world and .would maintain It in all the years to come. Gradually they are beginning to see the tremendous burdens we are asked to aasume and gradually they are understanding that there are some provisions In the cove nant which Inevitably must provoke war." Nrnator Cummins deplored the at tempt of some senators to charge other senators with opposing the treaty sim ply to discredit the president and to ac complish their political designs, as well as efforts of the latter group to make it appear tnat those suDDortlni the president were indifferent, if not hoa- lie, toward the vital concerns of their own country. The casual observer In the senate.' he added, ''would be inclined to reach the conclusion that the most Influential senators upon this side of the cham ber are altogether insensible to the awful horrors of war and are deter mined to keep the world In conflict sim ply to antagonise the president or to work out some petty ambition for party supremacy while at the same time he could not well resist the inference that the most persuasive senators upon the other side of the chamber are bent on wrecking their own country simply to vindicate the Infallibility of the chief executive In his work at Paris." Stick to Allies. Henator Cummins contended that when the war ended "our exit should have been as speedy and as complete as possible." This did not mean, how ever, he added, that the United Htates should have abandoned its allies or have made a separate peace with Germany, 'but it does mean that It was our duty to associate ourselves with foreign powers In reforming the map of the world aid In agreeing to maintain It aa the victors had made it. Condemning disposition of Rhantung. Senator Cummins said he wanted to re lieve the American republic "from the eternal odium of the Shantung crime," and "from the dlxgrnce of passing over Thrace to Hulgana. There would be many Shantungs, ha said, and if the irincipar associated powers worsea in harmony It would mean nothing less than complete ami arbitrary power of the world. As much as he deplored the w rongs done China, be would adhere, he said, to the principles he had previously announced and vote aralnat the com mittee amendment awarding the prov- Itice to China. The man who attempts to preach the doctrine that peace with Germany, with or without the league of nations, means peace for the world in tne relatione of men with men, or producing, selling and buying according to ancient customs. Indicia incalculable Injury on the nubile. If America, he said, "is snacklea to the proposed league of hatlnns lust as it Is written, she will go blindly and blundolngly into the future.

The roadways are so narrow that.it is Impossible to get from one building to another in comfort. . , ; - As now arranged ; there is no room to beautify the grounds and -buildings with flowers and shrubs. There are no Shady, restful spots where one can sit : and rest. ' ' ' " :, .; , J The buildings originally. erected iri 1908 were ex pected to answer their purpose for five years. They are now in bad repair and inadequate to care for the growth of exhibits. f - - : 1 : , : The Fair was this year compelled to turn; away ' exhibits. To care for those in the Poultry Building it was necessary to double-deck the coops, thus de stroying much1 of the beauty of the show. The cat tie swine and sheep buildings were entirely, inade quate to house the stock that came to the Fair, and we will have more another year.1 V.;-V'- : The machinery exhibits are badly located. There is not the right kind of. Toom for, parking cars. New buildings are needed Tor new exhibits. ; ' " The exhibits as a whole this year surpass those" of most of thejarge state fairs. At the same time we are spending less for improvements than any other ' Fair of importance in the United States. The water,' sewerage and other comfort facilities are also entirely ..: inadequate. ' : -: -'': :-rfy . If the Tri-State Fair is to hold its own ' and not . . go backward, better facilities must , be provided at "OnCe.'. ' . i"'-'. .(.-" Three hundred thousand dollars should; be spent for improvements during the next two" years. These improvements should be started immediately after the close of the Fair. To do this it is going to be necessary, to provide for same out of funds other than those re ceived front Fair operation. 1 1 ' ' - A special fund must be raised for this purpose. The business interests of Memphis, the city .and the ' county should provide this fund, r' . The City of Memphis has been liberal in provid- ing funds for civic improvements , questionably one of thecity's best assets and will fur nish bountiful returns for all assistance given. ' r Let's all pull together, properly-equip -the Fair, thereby enabling it to fulfill its mission to .the fullest extent. ' . ' CHARLES A, GERBER, FRANK D. FULLER, President. Manager.
