Fart, frsiu 42 Ku 8b Honor Meaning of Genoa Conference. , Hope for the Genoa conference ha teen re vived by the itatement of leaders that a way hat teen found to prevent its collapse. German and Ruttian delegate are centured for their having entered in a treaty arrangement without knowl edge of the otheri, and Germany it to he ex cluded from conference! dealing with Russian affairs because of that action. On the main points the progress of the meeting will be as may be, regardless of thit instance. . It is necessary to remember that both Ger many and Russia have been excluded from the League of Nations; they can be admitted to that group on the same basis as the Genoa conference, "provided they give 'effective guarantees' of sin cerity." Germany gave pledge of acceptance of the terms, and was admitted to the conference, . but throws a doubt of her sincerity by conclud ing a treaty with Russia while the report of the ' experts on Russian affairs was yet being scru tinized. I Aside from this, the great object of the as sembly is as yet not touched. Russia at the out- i set undertook to turn the current of the debate by injecting the question of disarmament. Fail ing in this, Tchitcherin set up a fantastic claim against the Allies for damage resulting from the anti-bolshevik movements headed by Kolchak, Deniken and others, and demanding reparations . to the extent of $25,000,000,000. This, too, may be a proof that the Russians are not sincere, and yet it is nnfair to both Russia and Germany to ' absolutely exclude them because they give an in-" dication of what is in the minds of every student N of the political situation. Germany and Russia are outsiders; they seek . protection and strength in union. ' Whether the Treaty of Rapillo be considered an alliance or v' not, it will be accepted as evidence of intention : on part of the signers to act together in matters affecting either at Genoa. Each has a bargain to drive with the other nations. From now on the lineup at least will be clear. What terms will eventually be offered to Germany and Russia are , to be developed, and the process by which a de- ": cision is reached will be interesting to all the .: world. . What About Public Safety? A dangerous criminal has a second time es caped from custody in Illinois, and the chief of police in Chicago advises the public when as sailed by this man to quietly submit to being robbed, as he certainly will slay if re sisted. Such remarkable advice from a chief of police may be interpreted several ways. First, it indicates a conviction in the mind of the chief that he is powerless to afford the protection he is expected to provide for the pub lic. Again, if followed, it will permit thugs to operate with impunity, for anyone may be the desperado who always kills. Also, it shows an astonishing laxity in the conduct of the jails of Illinois. A noted criminal might escape once, and nobody be to blame, but a second escape gives appearance of carelessness to say the least. Chicago is little, if any, worse, off than other communities. Crime is rampant all over the world, but in the United States it is especially notorious. In Omaha a shopkeeper within a block of the central police station was held up -and robbed in his store by two youthful bandits in broad daylight Other crimes as startling have been committed. New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, all over the country, afford strik ing examples of the failure of police authorities to cope with criminals, who are becoming bolder each day. Even the United States can no jonger assure safety of property entrusted to its care. It might be suggested that the Chicago chief of police could go about energetically to ap prehend the criminal he now warns citizens to submit to. Perhaps he will, but all will remem ber with what ease "Terrible Tommy" slipped out of the Cook county jail on the eve of his execution, and bow completely he has been able to hide himself since. This suggests .that all the ways of the underground world are not known to the authorities, although it may support the as sertion made at a meeting in Chicago recently that the authorities are under control of the crim inals. When will the world again be made safe tor peaceable citizens? thing for softie of the Oniah concerns lo w4 their credit mtn on this Uiit tour, and certainly the big boM should go, J-iith, coursi and understanding, in addition to new batinett, will lt the product of thit pi!jsrinut to the country. About the Navy Bat. A flwrouglily miitd-up afUir is that of the uavtt appropriations bill. At the partisan dut teiilrt don it appears that the republican rep ictrtiutivrt have tWeq approiinutely rvritty di. tided on thit bill, and only a record vote will how where the democrats stand. The dispute concerns whether 86,000 mlisiej men or 67,000 shall be authorised to man the I'nited States fleets. Until Representative Long, worth made public a letter from l'rctidmt Ilar ding which supported the larger estimate nude by the Navy department and embodied in the national budget report, the "little navy" advocate were in the majority. The vote taken thereafter, however, endorsed the administration's figure of 86,000 men bv a vote of I7MJ0. The contest is not yet ended. The houe ap propriations committee in its report ran counter to the budget estimate, and members of it de clare that to increase the enlistment over their figure would entail additional appropriations of $.'0,000,000 in the pay item alone, while ap propriations for shore stations, supplies and clothing would have to go. up at least $10,000,01)0. If the administration plan prevailed, they have said, the bill would have to appropriate $.'O3,0U0, 000 instead of $2JJ.000,000. A curious situation that lias been overlooked in that on neither republican tide is there any intention of reducing the navy below the strength provided as a maximum by the Washington con ference on limitation of armament. The differ ence arises through contrary views of what force is necessary to maintain the conference ratio of 5-5-3 between the navies of Great Britain, Japan nd America. v Opinion outside of congress appears equally diverse. The Chamber of Commerce of the United State has addressed a letter to the house, the president and the secretary of the navy sup porting the cut to 67,000 men. Commander I Ian ford MacN'ider of the. American Legion scut a telegram urging a full man force for ships al lotted by treaty, by which he no doubt signified his approval of the increase. However, Repre sentative Randall, democrat, of Mississippi, and Arentz, republican, of Nevada, both of them members of the legion, declare that the small committee estimate sustained the 5-5-3 ratio. The customary charges are made against the accuracy of the figures' presented by the in telligence bureau of the navy with respect to the enlisted strength of Great Britain and Japan under the treaty. The prejudice of a peace loving people quite naturally is in favor of spending the smallest amount needful on armament. This is one public matter. that can not be decided on par tisan lines, and in which efforts for political ad vantage should not appear. In America, politics always has stopped at the water's edge. That fhould put the navy outside the zone of political argument. . ,' Pilgrims of Trade. The Omaha trade excursion will go further this year than last, from Carroll and Sac City, la., to O'Neill, Neb., and Winner, S. D. This is through a rich agricultural area that will repay many fold cultivation by the business houses of the city. , . There is nothing in Omaha except the spirit of its people to make it a city the material credit belongs to the surrounding country which centers its trade and its traffic here. Six months ago a swing around this circle would have been extremely discouraging, but not so, now. The farmers, together with the business men and bankers who are dependent on them for prosper ity, have regained their confidence! Through the loans made by the War Finance corporation and the federal land .banks and through better market conditions, the whole aspect has been altered and improved. Nebraska is not discouraged, and neither is .Iowa or South Dakota. It might be a good Conan Doyle's Heaven.'. Most folks, nurtured on the vision of -John in Tatmos, will smile at the picture of heaven presented by Conan Doyle. It seems fantastic, yet it is not so grotesque, after all. John peopled his celestial world with angels, the souls of the ransomed dead, graded according to their merits, those of martyrs coming first, and the others ranked in order. ,He also expanded some finite conceptions to an infinite degree, enlarging upon material things to give an understanding of the spiritual. His river of pure water, his tree of life, his gates of pearl, with his walls of jasper and chalcedony and agate, are all of eaith earthy, but given a glow that only can come from heaven. And millions have accepted these as the symbols of the New Jerusalem. Is it any more difficult to believe that heaven contains other thing's with which we are familiar because of in timate associations here on earth? Man in the beginning made his heaven a continuation of his earthly existence, only on a higher and better plane. The happy Jiunting grounds of the Amer ican Indian had their counterparts wherever men had conceived of and longed after a life when this is ended. These longings have never ceased; John's vision was but a more vivid exoression of what the religious imagination pictured. He gave form to the somewhat inchoate notions of the Hebrew religion in regard to the conditions existing after death, drawing a distinct contrast between the promise made to the Christian and that held out to the pagans, and his thought seized and has held the mind for centuries. The Conan Doyle heaven will get support for just the same reason, because it does meet the. require ments'of many, and requires no greater faith t accept. Rail and Water Rates Compared. ' In outlining its reasons for supporting the Great-Lakes-St. Lawrence waterways project, the Associated Industries of Massachusetts tabu lated certain data as to transportation costs by water and by. rail. It pointed out that 200,000,000 tons of freight move each year between the in terior Great Lakes territory and the Atlantic sea board, that the average rate for rail transporta tion, excluding coal, is 15 mills per ton mile, and for water transportation approximately 2 mills per ton mile. Even, making allowance for the much longer distance from Chicago to Boston by water than by "rail,, the association figured a cost of $5.36 for water-borne traffic between these cities,. as against $15.51 by rail. Similarly from Duluth the rates were $4.44 and $22.70. On this basis the Associated Industries assumed a vast benefit to the Atlantic seaboard cities because of lower transportation costs, this being a factor which heretofore had not been emphasized in discussion of the St. Lawrence project. It simply added one more item to the weight of evidence favorable to the early undertaking of the work. Norway is going to regulate the naming of babies, and thereby may eliminate the patrony-i mics that have given the Scandinavians a pecu liar and picturesque distinction. This may be progress, but it seems just a trifle iconoclastic. Lady Astor says Marf ot is unique. That just about makes it unanimous. If the weather keeps up its present behavior, it will get itself talked about. Why not adopt the democratic program of 1914, and abandon the navy? Begins to look like the bonus is coming through, all right. To Jack Frost: You may leave any time. Congressmen in Training Fit for Anything Btcatua of Good Food and a Fin Physical Director. (From t Wtshingtosi Star,) Mrn.bm of congret ran go into the cam. paint they are lading with imumsl vigor and vi tality, for a healthier, hardier, nitwt obut type ii( iinrr.mn it being dwtoped ly cerne, lentiUnon and food.

To this the high mortality rate among the member was attributed in part. Then cam Representative Pn Kred of New York, lortnrr famnu athlete and funthall roach, more recently dot lor to tick rilir. With Repre sentative 14C Kacharach of New Jersey and some kindred spirit, he organized a gymnasium and appealed to all hi fellow members to tak regular exerrWe lo build up their phyiique. lit made a speech on the tloor of the houte in hich he put the fear of apoplexy into the hearts of hi collrasue. Today there are few members of either branch of congres who do not take regu lar exercite of some sort, either in the house ottice t uildiitg gymnasium or through walking, on the unU link, horseback riding, tennis or swimming. And they are noticeably improved physically and mentally in consequence. In order that the hours devoted to work may not undermine the vitality of coneremen by keeping them confined in dead or polluted atmos phere. Elliott Wood, architect of the Capitol, has completely remodeled the ventilating system in both the house and senate. All of the air in both the senate and house chambers is entirely changed at leatt every two minutes during the winter mouths and oftener during the summer. The whole space under the sests of the mem ber it given over to a ventilation chamber. Thit it lined with while enamel tile and it wathed every two weckt. Thit supplies to the house 60.0UO cubic feet of air every two minutes in the winter and 70,000 cubic feet every two minutes in the summer. In the senate chamber the quan tity of fresh air supplied is smaller on account of the smaller size of the chamber. The senate gets 25,000 cubic feet every two minutes in the winter and 40.000 cubic feet every two minutes in the summer. - In the summer also there are big electrically driven fans, which take care of practically three quarters of the exhaust. Besides this, the house has considered tearing out the rear wall of the chamber and extending it back to the outer wall of the building, so that there would be direct fresh air as it sweeps across the Virginia hills and the waters of the l'otomac With their health thus improved by exercise and ventilation, the members of both house and senate are bringing heartiest appetites to their meals. To thus supplement the good work to ward long and happy and useful lives, the entire cafe layout of the Capitol has been overhauled, renovated, modernized and put in first-class shape as regards sanitation, hygiene, cleanliness, com fort and service. Elliott Woods, as architect of the Capitol, and Representative Clifford Ireland, chairman of the committee on accounts, did a thoroughly good job in rebuilding the cafe system from the base ment up. No hotel in the country has a finer kitchen. The best of food is provided. The chef is one of the best in the country, coming from one of Washington's hotels which for years has enjoyed a, nation-wide reputation for the excel lence of its cuisine. Dietitians have co-operated in preparing the bill of fare, which will otter a wide variety of appetizing viands, but in such combination as will best meet the .peculiar needs of men who live and work as do members of con gress. .. : "i'Thc cafe in the Capitol must exist, because at lunch time members can not get far from the leg islative chamber and only for a brief space of time. They must keep in constant touch with what is going on on the floor, are momentarily subject to a roll call, and the usual luncheon hour is the time when congress is getting in its best licks at legislation. 'The cafes. both on the senate side and on the house side are operated on a service-at-cost plan, the prices being figured to just a little more than cover the expense of oper tion. No member of congress nor any employe about the Capitol gets free lunches at the Capitol cafe, but they do get the best quality of food that can be bought on the market It is prepared under model sanitary conditions by expert cooks just as much "home" cooking as is possible and at as near actual cost as it could be figured. In consequence of imp'roved physique and health through exercise, ventilation and proper food, members of congress are becoming better natured, go about their work with more "pep and mental keenness. Instead of dispeptic, nerv ous grouches, they are coming to act more like a crowd of eager, vivacious youngsters. How to Keep Weil B PR. V, A. I VAN I Qumiim brtWM. Im w4 imtiaa ml iin. ti.

Orrnifcti Another Hughes' Success Secretary Hughes scores again. From Paris and from London he has received assurance that the equity of the American claim in the matter of maintenance costs for the Rhine army will not be disputed. The French and British govern ments recognize that the claim is just and must be met... . - . This disposes happily of what might have been an occasion for misunderstanding and fric tion. Room existed for hair-splitting over tech nicalities, but' the first impulse to engage in an argument yielded to better judgment, and the cogently persuasive notes of the secretary of state evoked wise and conciliatory replies. The record thus set right, the United States can afford to be magnanimous by withholding any pressure for collection until France and Bel gium are in better position. There is no desire on the part of America to add to the burdens of countries engaged in a hard struggle to regain sound footing. - . The possibility of further co-operation be tween the United States and her former allies in such work as must be done to make the world a place "of peace and security for all who dwell on it depends upon keeping relations unclouded by misconceptions, as to mutual obligations. If cither side seems to be forgetful, it is the duty of the other to prompt the failing memory. Sec retary Hughes is wisely faithful in this duty, and performs it tactfully. Chicago Evening Ppst. Enough Farmers Now. , There is always a certain amount of pressure from well-meaning back-to-the-landers for the opening up of new deserts and swamps for settle ment. At present these propagandists do not re ceive much attention; and they should not. There are enough farmers, and enough farms, to pro duce as much food as may.be needed. To open up new agricultural areas, and to encourage city folks to go farming, would have a tendency to destroy the normal balance between production and consumption. It would seem better to re claim these idle lands in the years to come, when the food supplies may be less plentiful. Farm Life.
