LONDON, May 26. (Special Cable.)
Great interest and curiosity attach
to the recent Journey of Arthur Bal
four, former premier, and until re
cently foreign secretary to the Vati
can where he has had an audience
with Pope Benedict XV. This diplo
matic mission is expected to have a
very significant bearing on the Irish
problem and the relations of -England
and the Vatican as they are af
fected by the political activities of
Mr. Balfour was undoubtedly sent
to Rome after San Remo with the
hope of forestalling a visit of the
Irish bishops summoned there for the
canonization of the Irish saint, Olive
Plunkett. The Idea was to influence
the pope to Induce the Irish hierarchy
to disassociate itself from Sinn Fein,
if not to denounce it, the correspon
dent on the Daily Mail in Rome
"1 understand that Arthur Balfour's
long audience with the pope last week
was devoted chiefly to a government
statement of the case of Ireland, and
that his holiness will tomorrow hear
the other side from the Sinn Fein
leaders assembled here. He has al
ready conferred with the Irish bish
ops. It is possible that the pope may
express to the Irish pilgrims his de
sire for Irish peace."
Attempt Latest of Many.
One of .the main planks of British
hostility to home rule is that it means
"Rome rule," but Mr. Balfour's visit
is only the latest-of many attempts of
the British government to enlist this
supposedly baneful Vatican power on
their side. With Leo XII such an ef
fort practically succeeded, but the re
ception of the pope's intervention by
Catholic Ireland is not ll'sely to en
courage Benedict XV to follow his
example, even if he is so disposed,
of which there is no evidence.
When Cardinal Secretary of State
Merry Del VaL whose angliphile ten
dencies are well known, ordered that
Archbishop Stoner, dean of the Eng
lish Catholic hierarchy, be the cele
brant of high mass at the Plunkett
canonization ceremony, the Irish bish
ops entered a strong protest that an
Englishman should be thus associated
with this Irish canonization, and
Merry Del Val was forced to com
promise by naming an Italian prelate
Archbishop Mannix of Melbourne,
now enroute for Ireland and Rome
via the United States, is the leader
of the Sinn Fein movement in Austra
lia, where, according to Agency dis
patches, his departure from Mel
bourne was marked by scenes rival
ing those when Premier Hughes re
turned from Paris with the rich prizes
he secured fy Australasia.
The British government is anxious
that Archbishop Mannix be prevented
from going to Ireland, but Mr. Bal
four, on the contrary, found that a
powerful influence is being exerted in
the Vatican to secure for him the suc
cession to Walsh as archbishop of
Dublin, the latter being disabled by
age and enfeebled health.
Archbishop Mannix. as aggressive a
Sinn P'einer as the archbishop of Dub
lin, would give a new and still more
carious turn to events there, and his
mere visit to the country is causing
the gravest apprehension at Dublin
KnrplUa Xloaali Invited.
An invitation has been addressed by
the British government to the leader
of the Egyptian nationalists, who
claim independence for their country,
to come to London to negotiate terms.
This action is thought in some quar
ters to prelude a similar invitation to
Sinn Fein. The Egyptian nationalists
replied that they must have an out
line of Great Britain's ideas of the
terms of peace before deciding
whether the journey is worth while.
This invitation follows the futile at
tempt on the part of the Milner com
mission to get into touch with them
Similarly- it is rumored that Chief
Secretary Hamar Greenwood in Ire
land has fruitlessly sought negotia
tions with . thp Sinn Fein chiefs
through an unofficial intermediary.
Sinn Fein will .only deal with duly
accredited British representatives.
and win decline all meetings even
with these until Britain's army of oc
cupation is withdrawn. Thus a com
plcte deadlock has arisen and is likely
to continue until either the Sinn Fein
is beaten or the British government
is convinced that war on Ireland is
not worth the candle.

Caoner Doubtful About Cost of
Refining Justifying Present
Price of Commodity.
HOOD RIVER, Or, May 26. (Spe
cial.) A recent statement made by
H. F. Davidson, blaming sugar' refin
ers in part for the serious situation in
canning circles at present brought a
response from H. M. Haller of Port
land, of the Kellcy-Clarke company,
manufacturers' agents, who repre
sent sugar refiners. Mr. Haller
"The refiners are not making as
much profit today in refining and
selling sugar as. they did in 1P1S
under government supervision. The
cost of refining has materially in
creased since 1918.
"I read with interest your remarks
to the growers and I think they were
timely. If the jobbers and retailers
stock up heavily this year on high
priced goods which cannot be used,
prices in the future will go much
lower than they would otherwise." -
'. Replying to his letter, Mr. David
son, who is vice-president of A. Ru
pert & Co., one of Oregon's largest
"Taking your statements in the ab
stract, I should say that no complaint
could be made acainst the refiners.
On the other hand, I am still of the
opinion that sugar is costing the pub
lic too much and am very much in
doubt about the cost of. production
and refining justifying such prices."
Mr. Davidson cent the letter from
Mr. Ha-ller to the head office of Ru
pert & Co., and the following comment
was made by Walter A. Frost of the
sales department of the ccr.cern:
"I have no dcubt that Kelley
Clarke's figures are absolutely correct,
and they say figures won't lie, but it
has been proved that they will, at
times, and I don't think there is any
question about the refiners inakin
enormous profits cn sugar at present.
In any event, I can't see why Mr.
Haller should rush into print to de'
fend the refiners."

Scheme to Be Submitted to Labor
Council and if Approved Pe
titions to Bo Circulated.
W. S. TJ'Ren has devised a pro
gramme for the absolute upsetting of
the present form of state government
and if the central labor council likes
the proposition, petitions to place it
on the November ballot will be circu
lated. If the labor council does not
approve, the measure will be held in
reserve for the 1932 ballot, explains
Under the proposed measure, the
state will abolish the senate and have
legislative body- of 100 members;
the legislature is to elect the gov-
mor for an indefinite period. Instead
of registering; as republicans and
democrats or other party affiliation.
voters are to register according to
their line of work. Here is the way
the legislature is to be composed un
der the U'Ren plan:
Fourteen fanners. 14 farm house
wives. 5 farm laborers, 4 tenant work
ers. 3 merchants. 2 manufacturers, 7
railroad and other transportation
workers, 3 mall clerks and salesmen.
loggers and sawmill workers, 3
professional men (capitalists, law
yers, doctors, bankers, priests and
editors). 20 town dwelling house
wives, 2 women factory workers. 3
women clerks (stenographers, sales
women and school teacheis), 1 for
fishermen, 1 for actors and other the
atrical employes, and 1 for personal
and domestic servants.
The measure is sponsored by the
peoples' power league and among the
advocates signing an introductory let
ter are Otto Hartwig. George M.

During the 1919 festival two young

wanted to buy a bouquet of roses.
Mrs. Lowenson presented the sisters
with large bunches of the "Thousand

to their mother at Shoshone, Idaho.
Yesterday she was surprised to re

asking her to order a root or slip of
this same rose. ,

No Worry Expressed Over Inability
to Float Improvement Issne
Until Market Improves.
Contractors building sewers and
constructing streets for the city of
Portland are not worried over the in
ability of the city to dispose of its
improvement bonds. Thirty contract
ors appeared before the city council
yesterday and were told that tne city
would not be in a position to redeem
improvement warrants when due un
til such time as a market appeared
for city bonds.
Thee contractors also were told that
arrangements could be made for the
exchange of warrants for improve
ment bonds, and in most instances
the contractors seemed disposed to
accept the city's offer.
No general understanding was
reached between the contractors and
the city, however, it being agreed
that each contractor would submit a
letter to the department of public
works designating Just what he would
do in connection with every city con
tract that he had been awarded.
Ail such letters will be submitted
before next Thursday afternoon, when
another meeting of the council and
