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
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?

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
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
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.

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.

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
