WASHINGTON. D. G., Oct. 7 j
(Special.) Because the writer has'
found the subject to be one of
frequent discussion throughout the
country and occasionally of serAous
misapprehension, it will be useful j
to .state the precise present status ,
of the naval limitation treaty, the
four-power treaty and the various
other treaties and agreements arising-
out of the Washington confer
ence. The time is additionally
appropriate because shortly it will
be exactly a year since the opening
of that momentous meeting at
Washington,, and it is interesting
to examine the fruits of the event
as they now stand.
The most serious and frequent of
the misapprehensions heard :n
casual conversation about this sub
ject is a widespread surmise that
the scrapping of naval vessels,
which was contemplated by the
Washington conference, has been
held up by recent events at or near
Constantinople, and by the fear of j
war arising out of those events.
It is true that the scrapping of
ships has been held up, but not for
this reason. The events in the near
east have no relation- whatever to
the present admittedly halting
status of the treaties arising out of
the Washington conference. The
only relation possible to assume as
existing between the'tv Jies only)
in the suspicion that in one degree i
or another France, and the strained
attitude which France has toward
Cr?eat Britain, is the cause of botn.

To draw an accurate line in this
field between what are facts and
what are mere suspicions is bayond
the scope of the present article,
which aims merely to state chron
ologically just what has happened
to the various treaties arising out
of the Washington conference. In
doing this it is desirable, first of
all, to ask the reader to bear in
mind dearly the differences between
the signing of treaties, the ratifi
cation of treaties and the final
ceremony of exchange of ratifica
tions. All of the treaties were signed at
the time of the conference, by the
official representatives of all the
nations that took part. This sign
ing was the closing arct on the last
day of the conference.
After signing the firvt nation to
take up the matter of ratification :
was America. Immediately atter
the close of the conference Presi
dent Harding . sent the various
treaties to the senate. The senate
debated them for some weeks and
at the end of the debate ' ratified
them with some relatively unim
Japan Next to Ratify.
The second nation to ratify the
treaties was Japan. At the opening
of the conference Japan was looked
upon as the one nation that had
the most to lose and therefore the
one least likely to enter heartily
into the spirit of the conference.
How completely unfounded this
suspicion, about Japan was has
been proved by the events as they
actually happened. It is true that
during the conference Japan held
out stubbornly for the right to
maintain a larger navy relative to
the navies of Great Britain and
America than Mr. Hughes assigned
to her. But after some weeks of
discussion Japan accepted the ratio
t.f a navy three-fifths" the size of
that of America or that of Great
After the conference was over and
after the Japanese delegates re
turned home, Japan acted in a way
to demonstrate that she meant not
only to live up to the letter of the
agreements, but to go even further;
The head of the Japanese delegation
to the conference was Baron Kato.
Almost immediately after his return
to Japan Baron Kato took the offioe
of premier. That fact alone was
an eloquent eign of Japan's good
faith. If she had any intention of
evading the agreements she had
entered into she "would have been
most unlikely to choose as the head
of her government the man who had
actually participated in the making
of the treaties and had signed them
Agreements Fully Met.
In fact, Japan has not only rati
fied all the treaties in full, but has
actually gone further in the carry
ing out of the agreements about
China and Siberia than was called
for by the letter of agreement.
Japan has withdrawn her troops
from Siberia, although she was not
bound to do this at any fixed or
early date. And in other ways
Japan has not only lived up to the
treaties but- has gone even further
in the direction of showing an in
tention to manage her foreign rela
tions in the spirit of the Washing
The third nation to ratify the
treaties was Great Btitain. .This
ratification is in line with the dis
position shown by Great Britain
from the beginning. Both during
the conference and since it ended
(7reat Britain has shown a uniform
ivnd generous disposition to be
helpful in every way toward fur
thering the cause for which tPresi
t'ent Harding called the conference.
The other two of the five prin
cipal powers that signed the treaties
-we France and Italy. Of these two
irations neither has ratified. Whether
France intends to ratify or to refuse
ratify, should be apparent now
within a week or ten days. In
France the treaties were referred,
without recommendation, to a com
mittee of the French senate. There
after the senate adjourned. It will
come together again either next
Thursday or the Thursday follow
ing. As soon as the French senate
reconvenes it will be natural to
expect the committee to report.
When that happens or soon there
a fter we should be able to know
what France intends.
Italy Waits for France.
The reason Italy has not yet rati
fied lies undoubtedly in the fact
that she is waiting to see what
France wiil do. Italy wishes 10
have a navy as large as France's.
If France, by ratification, accepts
the size of navy assigned to her by
the Washington conference Italy
will promptly ratify also. If France

Part of the Oriental Rugs that arrived via the Persian "Caravan"
have already found their endearing places in appreciative
homes of Portland and vicinity
Great amazement and a spirit of
appreciation of the splendid
pieces, at exceptionally moderate
prices, have been evidenced among
many new home owners as well as
among people who for years have
been waiting to replace old rugs
with real distinctive orientals.
If you haven't had time to
see the many weavings that
our caravan has brought,
the invitation is still open to
you to come and mingle
with these soulful treasures
of the orient.
We feel that we want to distribute
this stock as widely as possible
among the good citizens of the
Northwest, for it was they who
made it possible for us to accom
plish what we have and we want,
in turn, to spread the fruits
thereof in a "democratic" manner.
Italy will probably do the tame.
Of the smaller nations which took
part in the minor treaties of the
Washington conference. China and
Portugal have ratified in full.
We come now to th ; matter of
the actual scrapping of snips. It
was not intended that any ships
should be scrapped until after all
the nations shall have ratified the
treaties. After, and if. all the na
tions have ratified, there will then
occur , in Washington the ceremony
of exchange of ratifications. It is
this ceremony that will mark the
actual completing of a binding
contract. Thereafter the scrapping
of ships in accordance with the
treaty will be in order.
In the meantime, some of the
nations'. Including our own. in an
ticipation of the limitation of naval
strength, have already stopped some
of their construction of new ships.
This covers the matter of the.
naval limitation treaty. The other
important treaty arising out of the
Washington conference was the so
called four-power pact. This treaty
covers the islands of the Pacific
and the four nations which signed
it are America, Japan, Great Britain
and France. What has already been
suid of the naval limitation treaty
is also true of the four-power
treaty. This treaty has been rati
fied by America, Japan and Great
Britain. France has not yet ratified
it and her intention about this
treaty, as well as about the naval
limitation treaty and all the other
treaties, will be known soon after
the French senate reconvenes, about
the midAle of the present month.
NEW YORK THEATER LIFTS
BAN ON WOMEN SMOKING
Privilege of Puffing Cigarettes Is Extended to Feminine Patrons;
Dancing in Foyer Between Acts Is Provided.

women may smoke."
There it is at last. Smokingr
in the music halls and theaters
heretofore has been restricted to the
male sex. But no longer. The wom
an who likes and appreciates a puff
or two is in her element now in
New York. The . dignified bankers
who have been con vent ion ing- here
abouts for the last week can go
back home and, if they so desire,
tell their neighbors that not only
are the women allowed to smoke in
a certain Columbia Circle opera
house, but that they do so with
More than a decade ago, in the
days when there was more spirit
yea, and spirits a Gotham poet
sang as he strummed his cigar-box
"Way down south in Greenwich
There the ladies go for thrillage
Down in Washington square."
And so on.
Well, the women do not have to
go so far south now. In this thea
ter, once the home of some of the
best-known stars of the American
and British stage, men and women '
alike now can smoke as they will. !
There are also no restrictions on
what they may puff. The cigarette,
a cigar, even the old corncob, or j
Missouri meerschaum, it all depends
on the taste of the smoker, not the
The theater caters to those who
like their entertainment. Refined
burlesque, a far cry from the old
time slapstick kind, is featured.
And it is the boast of the manage
ment that its patronage is at least
as well, if not better, dressed and
the percentage of women as high, if
not higher, than in any other thea
ter in the city.
The women like both the show
and the privilege to relax. A great
many of them smoke. But there
are plenty who do not. However,
they seem to take a peculiar per
sonal pleasure in seeing their sis
ters who indulge in the weed ligh.t
up and puff away without interfer
ence by anyone.
The management insists that the
patronage since the rule was put
into effect warranted the action.
"It was original with us," said one
of them today, "but we saw no rea
son why. if the men patrons were
allowed to smoke during the per
formance, the women who have hon-
ref ufc and insists on a larger navy j ored us with their patronage should
have that privilege denied them.
Even in the foremost legitimate
theaters you will see many women
hurrying to the dressing rooms as
soon as the curtain comes down on
an act to enjoy a hasty puff at a
cigarette. Why should they be in
convenienced when they pay their
money at the box office the same
as the men do?"
Another feature at this same
theater which is proving popular is
dancing between the acts. Carpets
have been removed from the foyer
and the space back of the rear row
of seats has beea waxed. A special
jazz orchestra has been installed to
furnish music to keep the dancers
PINEAPPLE LAND GAINS
Hawaiian Industry Is Spreading
and Sugar Is Declining.
HONOLULU, T H., Oct. 7. (Spe
cial.) The spread of the pineapple
industry in Hawaii is becoming daily
more evident and with its spread the
decline of sugar is obvious.
Negotiations were recently com
pleted whereby the Waialua Agricul
tural company obtained one-third
interest in the Hawaiian Pineapple
company in, exchange for a paid-up
lease to the pineapple company. The
leases embrace 12.000 acres which
have been producing sugar, but
which will be turned into pineapple
fields after this harvest. An additional-
iash consideration involved
is II. 250,000.
At the same time President Dole
of the Hawaiian Pineapple company
announced that he had obtained for
his company a lease with right to
purchase the island of Lanai. The
island has 100.000 acres and has
been a cattle farm for the Baldwin
interests of Maui. Only about 25.000
acres out of the total 100,000 acres
on Lanai could be used for pine
