The Washington conference having adjourned sine die:
the period of deliberation having ended and the hour of ac
tion having arrived, it is fitting that a review be had of the
wonderful and far reaching accomplishments of what has
been termed the most important gathering in all the long
record of the world's history
The work of what has been called the arms conference,
but which will come to be more appropriately termed the
peace conference.
President Harding very truly said in his closing address
to the assembled commission that "It is hazardous sometimes
to speak in superlatibes and I will be restrained." The Pres
ident is well a, ware that it is not what the conference did,
but what the peoples the commissions represented will do
that will determine whether justice is to dominate force in
the future intercourse among governments and peoples.
- iV But the President also said, with equal clearness and
truth, "the fiith plighted here today, kept in national honor,
will mark the beginning of a new and better epoch in human
progress' A way has been provided for the fulfillment of
a great hope. , The conference blazed the trail. Treaties
have been negotiated limiting armaments, righting ancient
wrongs and removing potential causes of future wars. These
treaties must not only be ratified, but must be honorably
observed by all the signatories in order that the spirit which
animated the conference may go forth, like the beams ol
the sun. until it has encircled the world.
i Senator Lodge said that the conference had succeeded ir
doing "something real and practical because it had not at
tempted to accomplish the impossible, to do too much. Its
cope was limited to the Pacific area, including the Far East.
He explained that "the Far East meant China." As set forth
in the agenda, it was called for a triple purpose : the limita
tion of armaments, the termination of the Anglo-Japanese
alliance and extending aid to China to secure real independ
ence. -
.These three objectives were won, and other things were
accomplished which were not believed possible when the con
ference convened. There was nothing in the agenda con
cerning the return of Shantung -to China by Japan and the
surrender by Great Britain of Wei-Hai-Wei. In fact, China
is the only country that won any territorial advantage as the
result of the conference. - . ,
At its final session a supplemental agreement was writ
ten into the four-power treaty which excludes the main is
lands of Japan from the "insular possessions" of the signa
tories in the Far East. This was done to prevent an inter
pretation of the pact which made it appear that the othei
powers were pledged to assemble in conference if the Japa
nese islands proper should be attacked by another power.
This supplemental agreement disposes of the arguments used
by Senator. Johnson and a few others against the treaty.
' Five treaties were negotiated by the conference. They
may be summarized as follows :
' . (1.) Quadruple agreement between America, Great Brit
jain, France and Japan .to mutually respect each other's insu
i lar possessions in the Pacific and providing for a quadruple
J conference in case the peace of the Pacific should be men
aced. . . v
- (2.) Five-power pact between America, Great Britain,
Japan, France and Italy providing for a limitation of naval
, armaments and scrapping about 850,000 tons of battleships.
the World war.
(3.) Five-power treaty outlawing the use of poison gas
in warfare and making the undersea attack on a merchant
vessel an act of piracy.
(4.) Three-power agreement between America, Great
Britain and Japan to preserve the status quo on naval bases i itp. b-eau?e Oregon c ity
and fortifications in the Pacific area. No new fortifications hom? of th? immaculate
are to be erected on the islands of the Pacific and there is! primary and direct legislation sys
to be no extension of naval bases.
(5.) Nine-power agreement, establishing the policy of
the "open door" in China. This agreement is a genuine tri
umph for American diplomacy, for it is a policy first promul
gated by our government and which every Republican ad
ministration has supported since. It went into temporary se
clusion during the Wilson administration'; but it has now
been reaffirmed and accepted by nine governments.
Supplementary treaties were negotiated by Which Great
Britain and Japan return Wei-Hai-Wei and Shantung to
China. An agreement was also reached between our country
and Japan concerning Yap and Pacific cable stations. Japan
also agreed to withdraw from the northern portion of the
island of Sakhalin.
Equally important, perhaps, is the declaration of princi
ples embodied in the treaties and resolutions, for they place
international relations on a higher and nobler plane than they
occupied before the World war. Speaking for Great Britain,
Mr. Balfour said that "nations in the future cannot violate
the principles laid down here without sacrificing the confi
dence of the powers. Hereafter selfish aggression at the ex
pense of China cannot be excused on a plea of ignorance or
of private understanding with minor Chinese officials "
No other conference of nations was ever conducted with
so little friction. Threats of force were never uttered. There
was no rattling of the saber, and justice, not power, was the
dominating spirit. Right was placed before national inter
ests ; and the result is the greatest triumph for peaceful di
plomacy of which history contains a record. The nations
part with a better understanding than when the conference
assembled. Friendships have been cemented and not even a
vestigejof a war cloud darkens any part of the Pacific area.
Wc could not have reasonably hpoed for more. Few people
in any part of the world hoped for as much.
President -Harding yesterday
laid before the senate the treat
ies agreed to and signed by th
Washington peace conference, and

pointed by the governor, Instead
of 72 boards and commissions.
Idaho has reduced her state
taxes and overhead cost of gov
ernment about 20 per cent, and
Washington has reduced about 2 5
per cent in total overhead, and
cut the state tax for state "expen
ses, outside of education, from
4 mills to 2 mills. A deficit
of $2,600,000 from 1920 has been
wiped out and about 20 per cent
of all appropriations made by the
last legislature are to be returned
to the state treasury. Yet Chris
Schubel has the nerve to say tax
es are just as high in Washington
and Idaho as in Oregon. The cold
fact is the farmers in Oreeon are
in open rebellion at the outrage
ous taxation bills that have been
forced upon them. The men who
have run the legislatures for the
past six or eight years have been
able totpass the buck and tell the
people that they themselves are
to blame for high taxes and ask
to be returned to the legislature.
What can the people do under
the present system which permits
no party conventions and absolves
all from party responsibility?
There is only one line and that is
to demand retrenchment and nom
inate business men who will
pledge themselves to initiate no
new taxes or appropriations, eith
er in the legislature or at special
ejections. The last session spent
$43,O0O merely for stenographers
and clerks, half of whom were not
competent legislative employes,
and the 400 new laws that were
enacted showed about half of
th?m more or less defective and
had to be Ironed out and fixed
up after they were passed. Most
of these laws raised salaries, cre

public service twice what the
