Goods Called for and Delivered
Pharoah of the Exodus is long
gone to bis punishment. We wish
only good to his descendants. The
news, now confirmed, that Egypt is
again to be free will be received with
satisfaction wherever free men live.
Great Britain has added something
to the morals of the world by keeping
its word with Egypt.
Americans hay have the satis
faction of knowing that they fur
nished not only a precedent but a
pressure of this action. The treaty
of Egyptian independence is to have
for a model our own agreement with
Cuba. The settlement is reached at
this time partly because of public
opinion in America. America had
the hono-. by the way, of furnishing
the Egyptians their attorneys. Ev
erything has to have an attorney.
now, ana tgypt employed Joseph
Folk to try its suit for independence.
The case was tried largely in the
American senate. There the plight
of Egypt was used to show the de
pravity of the Versailles treaty and
especially the imperalistic baseness
of Great Britain. The discussion in
the senate brought matters to a pass
where Secretary Lansing found it
expedient to write a letter to Senator
Owen saying that the United States
government recognized the British
protectorate over Egypt only under
the terms of the protectorate as an
nounced ty England at the time of its
Turkey had gone into the war
against the allies and was moving to
attack Egypt. For the better prose
cution of the defense of England, as
the British believed or said, a British
protectorate over Egypt was pro
claimed. But it was with the assur
ance that the protectorate would end
when the occasion for it has passed.
Usually nations forget all about such
pledges when redemption time comes.
The Egyptians did not let the British
forget in this case and the British
did not seem to want to forget. The
conference at London with the Eeyn-
, tian representatives was suggested, it
i appears, by the British themselves.
jThe understanding at Washington is
tnat tne agreement includes such
provisions as these:
Great Britain agrees to recognize
the Independence and full sovereign
status of Egypt.
The Suez canal is, without objec
tion, to remain subject to British control.
A treaty drawn on the lines of our
Cuban treaty will afford Egyptian
protection from outside interference
and will guarantee to her the con
duct of her own foreign affairs, with
the provision that she will not un
dertake any treaties, contrary to Bri
British troops will be withdrawn
except from the canal zone.
The matter of the "capitulations"
the treaties and conventions which
give Europeans in Egypt the right of
exemption from local tribunals, so
that if a foreigner commits a crime
he cannot be arrested by the Egyp
tian police or tried by the Egyption
law are reserved for subsequent set
tlement. The agreement has a wide range
of possible effects. On the one
hand, it bids fair to be a means of
keeping the Mohammedan world from
making common cause with bolshe
vism. "Bolshevist propaganda." it
Is reported, "is seething throughout
the near east and it was doubtless
the hope of Lenine and Trotzky that
Egypt, blistering under her alleged
wrongs at the hands of Great Bri
tain, would throw in her lot with
the Russian proletariat. Fear of
th. contingency, or at least recog
nition of the salutary effect of re
taining the good will of Egypt, un
doubtedly had some influence in lead
ing Great Britain to recognize her
independence at this time."
Then what an example to set be

Hears famous entertainer
compare performance with RE-CREATION! by Edison's
new phonograph could not tell the two apart.
Messrs. COLLINS and HARLAN, America's
popular entertainers, gave an extraordinary
recital at the Parmele theatre in this city
last Monday night.
They walked on the stage and stood beside a
stately cabinet. They began to sing "Down in
Jungle Land." The audience immediately yield
ed to the spell of their beautiful voices. Then sud
denly there was a stir a subdued murmur of fir
prise and a perplexed rubbing of the eyes. Tne
voices continued to fill the theatre with undimin
ished sweetness your ears were proof of that
but their lips had become absolutely silent your
eyes told you that.
What wizardy was this? It was the test of
direct comparison with the living artist, which
Thomas A. Edison has developed to demonstrate
that the Official Laboratory Model of his new
phonograph will sing any song exactly as it was
sung by the artist, and that his Re-Creation of a"
singer's voice, as it comes from his wonderful new
phonograph, positively cannot be distinguished
from the singer's actual voice, when both are
heard in direct comparison.
Messrs. Collins and Harlan made repeated
comparisons both singly and together always
with the same result. It was truly wonderful.
This master achievement of the great wizard, Edi
son, marks a new epoch in history.
The Phonograph With a Soul"
You can have a duplicate of the wonderful in
strument used at the Parmele recital and, if you
act quickly, we can furnish you with an engraved
certificate (signed by Messrs. Collins and Harlan)
certifying that it is an exact duplicate in tonal
quality of the instrument they used in their amaz
ing comparison; also that it will sustain precisel'
the same test.
We have a number of the famous Official Labo
ratory Models and Messrs. Collins and Harlan have
certified every one of them. Come to our store
at once and ask to see and hear the Official Labo
ratory Models on which Messrs. Collins and Harlan
have issued their Certificates of Authenticity.
