A BHINEIiAND REPUBLIC
Ab the diplomatic drama; in
Europe slowly unfolds the motive
behind the French invasion of the
Ruhr becomes more apparent.
And as that motive emerges from
its diplomatic swaddling clothes
the reason why France and Great
Britain can reach no agreement
is equally obTious. -
The explanation of the j whole
French policy is revealed in a dis
patch of a few days ago from Ber
lin: "German separatists-. In the
Rhlneland are eagerly awaiting
chaotic conditions in unoccupied
Germany in order that they may
proceed to proclaim a republic. It
is asserted, however, that the
movement must have a prelimin
ary promise of military help from
the French." V I
There is no doubt France would
withdraw from the Rhlneland no
on satisfactory guarantees that,
the reparations due her under the
Versailles treaty were going to be
paid in f ulL But she entertains
no great' expectations of witness
ing such a modern miracle.
It is equally certain France has
no desire of acquiring the odium
that would attach to the end of
forcibly annexing by conquest ter.
ritory indisputably part of the,
German republic. s
But between these two extremes-
lies the happy medium that would
satisfy French policy and enable
her to score a diplomatic triumph
over her late ally. An Independ
ent Rhlneland republic, in sympa
thy with France; would establish
all that the Poincare government
has been fighting for and com
pletely frustrate the traditional
policy of Great Britain.
For It would be a first step to
ward Balkanizlng completely cen
tral : Europe and, unless Russia
comes back, at present a remote
contingency, the break-up of the
mighty Teutonic federation built
by the genius of Bismark. would
leave France the undisputed mis
tress of the European . continent.
From the French viewpoint and
for the glory of her present polit
ical leaders this consummation, is,
devoutly to be wished. But, since
Great Britain is unlikely to de-;
part from her century-old diplom
acy of always backing the weaker
against the stronger so as to pre-
serve the balance of power, the
tremendous ! preponderance ; t of
French Influence on the continent
Is only paving the way for another
bloody war In the 'future.
THE POINT OF VIEW
Smith Brookhart, one of the
senatorial champions of the soviet
regime j eays that the Russian
leaders tell him that in connec
tion with propaganda distribution
the Americans are putting out ten
times as much against them . as
they are able to distribute on their
own behalf. ( This demonstrates
that all classes call that "propa
ganda"' which runs counter to
their own logic. The spontan
eous expressions "of Americans on
behalf of their own institution
and against the Commune are rep
resented by Lenin and Trotzky as
being 'subsidized propaganda
against poor and defenseless Rus
sia. They would have their peo
ple: believe that American news
papers are being vpald huge sums7
for, warning their readers against
the hazards of soviet rule. There
are Russians who think that our
government is paying for every
anti-Bolshevist paragraph printed
in the American press. And Sen
ator Brookhart seems to have tak
en, no pains to correct this Im
pression while in Russia. He even
lent a placid ear to the Russian
project of offsetting the claims of
Americans against Russia by rec
ognizing the claim of Russia
against America for lending mor
al and substantial support to rev
olutionists against the soviet. Lis
tening to Senator Brookhart's
presentation of the case one might
think that he himself was prepar
ed to recognize the justice of the
Russian : claims.' He would have
us send a few billions of our gold
to repay Russia for the unkind
words we have said about the
Commune. He says that we sent
arms and ammunition in government-owned
ships and these mu
nitions were used to destroy Rus
sian life and property. Therefore,
we may be required to pay a fan
cy price for every Russian ' who
has passed out in the last ten
years. We may need protection
against oar own senators. '

CHICAGO, Aug. 11. With es
timates current that the Canadian
yield of wheat this season would
fall to total more than 325,000,
000 bushels, notwithstanding a
previous forecast of 500,000,000
bushels, wheat reached the high

Corn finished at Vi3 off to

to a shade higher, and provisions
varying from unchanged : figurej
to a rise of 10 cents.
Unfavorable weather delaying
the Canadian harvest and increas
ing the likelihood of damage to
late wheat, gave an upward swing
to the wheat ; market as' soon as
trading began. Besides, domestic
winter-wheat threshing was be
ing delayed by rains. Country of
ferings were light and the amount
of hedging selling was small. Af
ter the initial bulge in prices, how
ever, profit taking on the part of
farmer buyers led to a temporary
reaction. Bears meanwhile put
on stress of small export demand
as well as on assertions that Italy
and France were selling back
wheat bought in the United States
and that it was difficult to obtain
cash on wheat purchased for ship
ment to Germany.
' Announcement of the 325,000,
000 bushel estimate of the 1923
Canadian wheat crop came shortly
before the close of business here
and was largely responsible, for
lifting wheat values to the day's
top figures. The new Canadian es
timate was unofficial but was said
to be from a very, "trustworthy
source and was, made public hero

Moist hot weather, ideal for pro
