Washington Observations-By Frederic W. Wile
United States Senator* eat through Senator FTank
B. WilUR' sonorous reading of the farewell address on
Washington's Birthday in no perfunctory spirit. The
floor was not crowded, but was well filled. Perhaps
half the membership of the Senate was present, about
equally divided between republicans and democrats.
Men wer there who have weathered many similar
occasions- -Lodge, Warren, Simmons, Overman, Smoot,
Iatfalletta, Brandegee and Borah, each of whom has
| been In the Senate for more than 17 years. Coplea
of the address were in the hands of all senators and
were followed intently as Willis read it The Ohioan
raised his voice to an oratorical pitch only when he
came to the passages in which Washington warned
against “entangling alliances.“
Probably never in our history has a cabinet ol
I ficer of the republic been on the floor of the Senate
at a more thrilling moment than the hour Harry M.
Daugherty spent there on Washington’s Birthday. The
attorney-general promised Senator Willis a long time
ago that he would listen to his farewell address per
formance. When the session began, Daugherty took
up his station in one of the big armchairs back of
the republican side of the bouse. Worry seemed a
thing he didn’t know the meaning of. A wag in the
press gallery said it was a case of an untersified
Daniel in the lions’ den. Cabinet ofTicers have the
privileges of the floors of congress. Senator Moses,
republican stalwart, stepped over to Daugherty for a
smiling chat. Later Senator Davis Blkins, of West
Virginia, took a seat alongside the attorney-general
perhaps because misery loves company.
Capitol Hlli is suffering from an acute attack ot
nervous investigation. In the Senate, according to
official information supplied to this observer, no
fewer than 40 to 60 investigations are pending, au
thorised or asked for by resolution. In the House,
about 26 are under way or projected. The Senate
inquisitions embrace oil, Russia, the Bureau of En
graving, piopaganda, causes of the World war, and
a variety ot other topics in and out of the criminal
code. House investigations cover oeneral Wood,
bootlegging in the District of Columbia, ticket-scalp
ing Washington rents, why the colored vote In the
south doesn’t vote, Alaskan fisheries and what-not.

John Stiles, speaking on behalf of the Rotary
club of Ottawa, Canada, in Washington the other day
told of the astonishment of a distinguished Euro
pean visitor in Ontario, as he was shown a map
containing the unfortified “imaginary line'' between
the United States and Canada. The European was a
military man. He pointed to half-a-dozen points on
the border which he said were obviously “strategic
points” of great value. “Are there no fort* there?"
he asked. “None,” he was told. “What is there?"
the Old World denizen persisted. "Nothing but
hydro-electric stations for peace-time industry," was
the reply, whereupon his Canadian host preached an
eloquent sermon on what war mad Europe could
learn from North America's “unprotected” frontier
of 3,000 miles.
Representative Meyer Jacobstein, of Rochester,
N. Y., seized upon the 102nd anniversary of George
Washington’s birth to make a timely argument in
favor of the soldiers bonus. Mr. Jacobstein has been
reading Washington’s diary and there he discovered
that the Father of His Country cordially approved
of th« payment of & Revolutionary war bonus not
only to the enlisted men, but to the officers, of tbe
Continental army. General Washington himself was
voted immense grants of land in token of bis service
in the Indian wars, including vast slices of what is
now the state of Ohio. But he returned them for

French Occupation Taught Germany
It Can Pay Share of War Expenses
From the New York Post.
As the time draws near for some sort of showdown on the
German reparations issue, signs and portents begin to appear.
The Dawes committee, whieh has so far worked in comparative
secrecy, is about to make its report. Naturally there is specula
tion with regard to the “recommendations” that are to be sub
mitted not only to the reparation commission and the govern
ments involved but also to a more or less candid world.
Two of these forecasts are of more than passing interest.
One is that the members of the inquiry board are convinced, after
surveying the situation in Berlin, that Germany can pay the total
amount demanded by the Allies. The German government has
not been collecting taxes. If Germans are taxed as heavily as
Frenchmen or Englishmen, as has time and again been demon
strated, the obligation of 132,000,000,000 gold marks can be met
within the stipulated period of 40 years.
Once this point is established and stamped with the approval
of the committee of experts, matters will be considerably simpli
fied. The know-it-all brethren and the German propagandists
Lave for years, day in and day out, been hammering upon this
one nail. “Astronomical figures,” “impossible indemnities,”
“ridiculous, ruinous, monstrous reparations” were but a few of
their favorite expressions. By dint of mere repetition they man
aged to gain wide circulation and considerable acceptance for
The reason for the belief that Germany can shoulder the bur
den lends itself to no such picturesque and dramatic exposition.
Germany has no national debt, and therefore no sinking fund
and interest charges to meet. Make reparations her national
debt, with annual charges of $625,000,000 a year. Tax Germane
no higher than Frenchmen are taxed for the same purpose, and
much lower than Englishmen, and the accessary amount is pro- j
vided. That is all there is to it.
It would never have been possible to force Germany to as
sume this debt had France not taken the role of sheriff and occu
pied the Ruhr region. Germany was prospering under a policy
of evasion. Berlin was receiving from the outside encourage
ment enough to convince authorities they could persist in sueh
Under pressure from France the policy had to be abandoned.
Men who believed that Germany would have to submit, that it
would be ehcape:* in the end for Germany to submit, were placed
in the high places of German politics and governmental finance.
Gradually the “will to pay” uamc into being.
Graft In European Pros*.
From the New York Times.
Articles were published some weeks j
ago in the socialist newspaper of
Paris, U’Humanlte, showing the cor- '
rupt relations between many French
Journals and the Russian govern- •
ment. The documents were drawn
from the .archives of the Russian
foreign office. They consist largely
of reports made by the Russian fi
nancial agent In Paris. He had been
constituted a sort of paymaster of
the forces in connection with tho
French press. The whole makes up
a shocking story of bribery or
blackmail resorted to at the time of
the floatation of successive Russian
loans on the French market.
There is, te be sure, nothing par
ticularly novul or surprising in this
disclosure, klot only France, bu» in
other continental countries, the re
lation of must newspapers to their
government, and to the governments
of foreign nations, has been different
from anything known in the United
Suites or in England. Sometimes
subsidies are given direct. More often
Journalists have secretly been in re
ceipt of money in return for their
supposed influence. The system has
been tong established and perfectly
familiar, but is none the less utterly
reprehensible. There is no excuse
for it. It brings journalism under
suspicion and reproach. It will be a
happy day for continental Europe
when in can point to newspapers that
are selfsupportlng and Independent
and known by all to have opinions
that cannot be bought.
The defense is set up that con
tlr.entil newspapers could not live
units* 11 '•>- securer! from time to
time, funds from political aspirants,
or from governments desiring to
make use of them. The small
amount of advertising carried by
foreign newspapers Is not sufficient
It is asserted, to enable them to meet
their coat of publication. They are
driven to seek financial help secretly,
whether altogether legitimate or not.
This may be an explanation, but it
is no defense. The first duty of u
self-respecting newspaper man—a
duty both to his own culling and to
the public—is to make the press what
it professes to be, an honest medium 4
