What Xilled the Peace Treaties.
That the emasculation of tbe arbi
tration treaties la tbe senate baa
practically killed them, so far aa
negotiation of ' tbe present peace
agreementa Is concerned, ie the gen
eral and accepted opinion. Presi
dent Taft announces that be baa not
yet abandoned bis hope of thua for
warding the peace movement, being
convinced that popular sentiment in
favor of abolishing the borrors of
war is far more deep than the sena
tors Toting adversely have realised.
To ns it seems that tHe cause of
International . arbitration baa , ' re
ceived a severe setback from which
It will take time to recover, but tbe
recovery may be expedited byerys-
ItaUixing public opinion and focus
ing tbe demand for settling disputes
between nations by tbe machinery of
peace rather .than by the arbitrament
of war. But we. cannot help regard
ing the failure of t the. arbitration
treaties as chargeable to the play of
personal and partisan politics, which
has entirely overlooked 'the Intrinsic
merits. -. . .'.-'.
.The opposition 'of tbe democrat
can be explained only by their tear
that President: Taft might have an
added prestige, thfdugh'. his leading
part in initiating a great -world
achievement. Yet the obstacles set
p by the democrats- would have
been unavailing were not the influ
ence of Colonel Roosevelt, -and those
attached to bis political fortunes,
likewise thrown against the) treaties.
Notwithstanding the fact that as
president be bad won universal ap
plause by forcing cessation of hos
tilities between Russia and Japan,
and bad been rewarded for tbia act
with i the Nobel peace prise, Colonel
Roosevelt did more than any other
onvman to block the arbitration
treaties negotiated by President
Tart, and to justify the deadly
amendments ot their enemies In tbe
sedate. Tbe horde of special inter
eels that feed and grow rich on war,
that build battleships., manufacture
armor plate, sell gunpowder, equip
armies, erect fortifications and ra
dicate war loans could not have had
more timely and effective reinforce
ment than they received from
Colonel Roosevelt, although doubt

The Value of Cold Storage.

that "It Is tbe cold storage men who

for the cold storage, eggs would go
