, Russia Learning the. Rules.
Reiteration by Secretary Hughes of the United
State policy of nonrecognition toward the soviet
government, together ith the attitude of Bel
gium and France on the private property qucs
tion, muit give even 10 naive a diplomat a M.
Tchitcherin cause to think. The United State
ran not consider the existing form of what passe
for government in Russia sound, for it is a denial
of the fundamental principle on which our gov
ernment ret. Our country also join with Bel
gium and France in declining to accept any ar
rangement that condone the confiscation of
property of foreigners in Russia. No objection
is raised to the expropriation or nationalization
of the belongings of Russian nationals, but the
property of foreigners seized by jhe government
mutt be compensated for. That responsibility
must be accepted by the Soviets before any ap
proach to an understanding can be made between
Vahingtoh and Moscow. The ame principle
applie here as is invoked between the United
State and- Mexico. The Harding administra
tion does not intend to abandon American citi
zens domiciled or engaged in legitimate business
. Self-determination of Russians is not involved
in this. Any form of government that suits them
is permitted, but it will not secure approval and
enjoy communication with the United States un
less it assume the same responsibilities that are
recognized and accepted here. Compensation
for property seized or destroyed, observance of
commercial contracts, and respect for interna
tional obligations are essential to harirtony'of In
tercourse, and without them there can be no
genuine relations between the governments.
Lenin and Tchitcherin alike are clamorous
for recognition. They are not pleased with the
program contemplated at Genoa, but they are
learning that established governments which
recognize human rights are more than a little
wary a to setting up close communication with
a group that is pledged in every way to destroy
any and alt forms of government not framed ac
cording to their' ideas of what is rigjit. Espe
cially, in this country is bolshevism unpopular,
and the plea that America joiri in the Genoa con
ference and' extend the right hand of. fellowship
to the soviet ' is insincere because those1 who
make it know that it can not be done with the
consent of the American people. The' soviet
crew i getting some needed lessons in elemen
tary politics, just as its experience in , applied'
economics has served to show, it something that5,
can not be done by issuing proclamations.

ha adopted a rule which will permit th discus

Meanwhile, the attorney general and the sec

Recognition for Co-Operation.
''We have reached the point where the right
of the co-operative marketing organization to
carry the products of their membert for orderly
marketing, until the consumer is ready to take
them, must be recognized and the necessary
financing machinery provided," Managing Di
rector Meyer of the War Finance corporation re
ports to President Harding. It was, by the way,
at the request of the chief executive that 'Mr.
Meyer made a special investigation of the farm
The official recommendation accordingly is
made that the need for orderly marketing in a
more gradual way and over a longer period of
time be frankly recognized, and that existing
banking laws and practices" be adjusted to this
end. What Mr. Meyer specifically asks, is that
a rediscount facility be established to make it
possible at all times for co-operative marketing
organizations to obtain, adequate funds for their
operations. " He recommends also that the
powers of the Federal Rcsefye banks be extended
to include the purchase in the open market of

Cuba and the Philippines
Contrast 'iii Effects of Policy
Pursue!, by the United States.
(Prom the Boston Transcript)
Cuba it undoubtedly in sorry plight. Very
largely, at we must believe, through the incain.
pnence or worse of lit own government, it it
oo the brink of financial collapse. There U muvh
talk of American intervention, either at our own
initiative under the 1'lstt amendment or, not Im
probably, at the request of Cuba herself. Such
action ought, of course, to be taken if necessary
to save the island from bankruptcy and chaos,
But it would be almost regrettable to be com
pelted to take it, from more than one point of
view. It would doubtlest ranse some to isrge
that eor reoccupation of the island be nude per
manent. There are those who have alwayt de
plored our action in giving Cuba autonomy in
stead of annexing the island. The fact is, how.
ever, that we did pledge ourselve not to annex
Cuba, and that pledge must of course be faith
If, however, we cannot undo that act of self
abnegation, we can avoid performing another
such act in circumstance which afford not a
millionth part of the reason for doing to that
we had in 1898; indeed, in circumstances which
make it tantamount to breach of faith. We can,
that it tay, refute to let the Philippine fall into
the financial demoralization that now afflict
Cuba. Those island have already got into a
bad plight. We are told that all public work,
including some of most vital importance, have
been tuspended, and that the tchool teacher
have been unpaid for month, because of bad
management of finance! and consequent empti
ness of the treasury,
It may be well asked, if under native rule,
aided and abetted by an American governor gen-'
eral committed io the "cut and run" policy, the
finance of the island have been to badly man
aged, what would happen if we. should tcuttle
out and leave the . island to absolute inde
pendence? There it ample reason to expect that
they would tpeedily fall into a wone plight than
that which is now causing Cuba to wish that the
were still under United State rule, and that it
would be practically necessary for thi country
or some other to intervene for their salvation
from bankruptcy and chaos.
In such circumstances, what would be the
moral if not the legal responsibility of the United
States toward the other nations of the world?
We must rernember that by the Treaty of Paris
in 1898 we established permanent and perpetual
sovereignty over the Philippines. The treaty
provided for their cession to us, outright and
complete. There was no hint, as in the case of
Cuba, of a limited occupancy of the islands, to
be followed by the bestowal of independence
upon 'them. The treaty unmistakably intimated,
and those who made the treaty unquestionably
understood and intended, that our annexation of
the islands was for all time. The other nations
of the world so understood it, as they had every
reason- to do, and many of(their citizens went to
the Philippines and made important investments
there solely on the implicit understanding that
the islands were always to belong to and be con
trolled by the United States.. In what light
should we stand before the world if we should
scuttle out, repudiate the responsibility for the
islands which we assumed in 1898, and bid those
who have been depending upon our endorsement
of the islands that our endorsement js not worth
the ink with which it is written?
; It was one. of the most astoundingly culpable
contradictions in our policy that the very ad
ministration which gratuitously, aggressively, and
without due warrant imposed our suzerainty and
indeed, our actual rulership over Haiti, Santo
Domingo, and Nicaragua, should at the very
same moment have striven to withdraw, our law
ful sovereignty from the Philippines. It strove
to. establish our sovereignty where we had no.
right to it. and to renounce our sovereignty
where we not only had a right to it but also
where we were under the strongest moral obli
gation to; maintain it, r .
National Control Failures
The tendency to look to the federal govern
ment to solve every problem and shoulder every
burden that becomes difficult for private interests
to solve or carry has been so much in evidence
in recent years thaf "ft is not surprising to hear
many voices urging the government to take oyer
the coal mines and operate them.
Apparently, the government's experience In
operating private industry during the war and
since has made no impression upon those who
imagine that government, control is the panacea
for all industrial ills.
What is there in the record to encourage any
such belief? Surely, not in the operation of the
railroads. The outstanding feature of govern
ment control of the roads was poor; service at'
extra cost. Within a few month's the formerly
magnificent,; railroad system of the country was
almost demoralized. Labor becarhe inefficient
and at times insolent. Rehabilitation of railroad
properties was largely neglected. The federal
treasury ' was called upon to make good , huge
Having failed so utterly in the 'transporta-
tional field, what reason is there to "expect any
better success in the mining field, which if any
thing is more difficult? To embark on such an';
enterprise as operating the mines wpuia- aunqst
surely mean another era of extravagance,'; in-"
efficiency of labor; and very likely an inadequate
supply of coal..,.. ' " .,i 1 ". "'('v
, Or, if our own government's experience" is. not;
enough to. warn against the impracticability of
federal operation of private business, Canada
furnishes a ready example right at our door. The
Canadian government has been operating the
Canadian railways with the-exception of one im
portant system, and. it 'appears- that the system
remaining in; private hands is the only one that
has paid' expens'es,sihce the war.
"The gbvernment'of Ganada-admits ifrlosfr$70,
OW.OOOihr operating "the roads in" 1920, wjtilerail
road authorities themselves estimate the loss at
$136,000,000. Another huge deficit was incurred
in 1921, which with the $100,000,000 interest that
had to be paid, cost the Canadian government
half of its .income last year. , The shipping en
terprise that was - attached to the government
railroads has likewise been the source of huge
losses, the New York Times reporting that the
capital loss in the ships is rated at one-half. . ..
The coal problem is admittedly a tough one.
One side to the controversy appears to be as
culpable as the other. But government control
of the mines -.would in all probability make mat
ters worse1 if possible. At least, that has been
the experience of every big venture in govern
ment ownership thus far tried on the American

..i ; Our Vanishing Forests. . , .
A report of the forest service made at the re
quest of the United States senate shows that this
country is using about 26,000,000,000 cubic feet
f wood annually from its own wooded area and
is growing about .6,000,000,000 cubic feet. This
procesa-of slow production and rapid consump
tion results every year in the addition of be
tween 3,000,000 and 4,000,000..acres of idle land
to the area of cutover land, and, the nation now
has over 300,000,000 acres of 'cutover. and,.. to a
shocking extent, burntover land. "
Nobody can call the figures here printed "dry
statistics." They are appalling. There are still
great areas of forest. in America and, if all the.
suitable land were at work 'as it ought to be,
there would always be great areas of forest here;
but the present situation points to the time when
there will be virtually nothing left. Detroit Free

our requirements for some years to come. It may be taken ,
as furfher indication of the centering of our facilities in
Omaha, the natural point of vantage from which to direct ,.
service in the territory which we serve.;
This building, from foundation to roof, is largely the product ''
of local engineering, local contracts and local labor. We
should be glad to have you inspect the structure at your
convenience, not only to acquaint yourself with the building
: and its location, but further to give you some idea of the .
growing importance of our service center Omaha.
