Apprehend Guilty Party
From Friday's Dally.
Halucinat ions containing visions
of the red flag must have flitted thru
the mind of someone last night, else
they could not have perpetrated such
a dastardly deed as was committed
at the Klks club last night while
the dance was in progress in the ball
room ( n the seoond floor. An eight
stone slab, comprising part of the
ledge extending around the porch on
the first floor was lifted forward and
dumped- onto the sidewalk below,
breaking it into a great many pieces
and causing damage that will require
no small sum to repair. In addition
to the flab itself a row of the brick
supporting it were torn out with it
and dashed to pieces. We have heard
of the throwing of stones through
windows, etc., through harboring a
grudge of some sort but to commit
such a deed tfs this without any ap
parent reason whatever is beyond
eo'ici pt ion. and indicates the pres
ence of holsheviki germs being har
bored in the mind of the perpetra
tor. At the Wagner hotel corner,
tme of the large Mocks had been lift
ed fron the sidewalk and flashed to
pieces on the pavement, probably be
ing doiie by the same miscreants.
If does not look like anyone could
do such a thing and get away with
it and they probably won't. A Jmt
punishment should be meted out to
whoever is guilty of having commit
ted th;s act. which should include
reparation to the Klks lodge for the
damage done. '

corr.e Our Protege,
Washington, April 2. That there
in going to be a league of nations,
to enforce peace, and that the Unit
ed States is to be a member of if is
now generally conceded among pub
lic men who are criticising provi
sion of the covenant endorsed by
President. V.'il.-on. The covenant will
be modified by the allied council in
Paris to Induce some, if not all. t t
the amendment proposed by the
opposition, which appears to have
been given by former Senator Root
a form moy.t acceptable to the Amer
ican de-lealon at the peace confer-(T't-.
If U r.'S unlikely that any
horf coming of the modification af-ff-rtfr
jn Paris will be met in the
tfT:ztf hy resolutions qualifying
rafiflcation by the United States so
ha f preserve American rights and
interest With the prospect of the
creafioi of a league of tome sort
generally accepted, intere-t is be
ginning to center upon the part the
United States will p?ay in the so
ciety, of nations and the effect of
the operations of the league upon
vital interests cf the American re
public. It is already foreseen that the
United States will be requested by
the league to become the mandatory
for the new- republic of Armenia. It
is not clear whether the assumption
of such an obligation would be obli
gatory, and many critics of the
covenant are urging that it should
Cannot Shift Responsibility.
President Wilson, however, dur
ing his recent visit to the United
States clearly indicated that the al
lied program calls for an American
mandatary for Armenia. Tiie presi
dent's supporters contend that the
United States cannot justifiably re
fuse to do its part, whatever the
cost, in the work of preserving world
peace and protecting and assisting
the small peoples created by the
break up of the empires of the Ger
man alliance. The opposition holds
that the United States should stick
to this hemisphere and let the east
ern hemisphere care for its own.
As mandatary for Armenia the
United States would have a job of
no mean proportions. The A'rmen
ians claim a territory extending
about 1,000 miles from east to west
and about 4 00 miles from north to
south with access to the Mediter
ranean, Black and Caspian seas.
In none of the provinces of this
territory are the Armenians in the
majority, the Turks and Kurds pre
dominating generally. To protect
the Armenians p.nd develop a gov
ernment lodged in their hands will
require statesmanship of a high
order, an administrative system op
erated at first by a large contingent
of Americans and military and naval
forces of size that would be de
termined by circumstances.
Senator Cummins estimated that
an army of 100.000 men would be
required for any American police
duty in the near east. This ques
tion will have an important bear
ing upon the evolution of a perma
nent military policy by the next
congress. At the rate of enlistment
