AS THE partisan newspapers, as part of the provincial
game to make political capital out of the peace treaty
are already blaming the president for its rejection, it is
well to review the facts to maintain a clear perspective
through the poison gas bafage of partisanship that has en
veloped the treaty since the first effort to draft it.
President Wilson brought back the preliminary draft
of the treaty and league of nations last February from
France. He took back with him objections raised by the
senate and succeeded in having the document amended to
meet the senate's expressed views.
Congress was called in special session in May and has
since played politics with the treaty. Amendments having
been rejected, the Lodge reservations which in the presi
dent's opinion would have nullified the treaty, were tacked:
on and the cloture rule applied. i
Both parties were split into two factions, 13. of the
republican majority, and 5 of the democratic minority op
posing ratification of the treaty in any form. This,"bat
talion of death" comprises all surviving members of the
"litfle band of willful senators" who defeated by filibuster
the arming of Amrican merchant ships against U-boats
just prior to the declaration of war, and those who play
ed the German game throughout the war. A third repub
lican faction, the "mild reservationists" favored the treaty
with minor reservations. -
On the final day, the mild reservationists joined the
Lodge adherents in refusing to permit any ratification
of the treaty even to be debated or considered or voted
upon except the one introduced by Lodge, which the presi
dent had declared would nullify the treaty, and which
had been twice defeated. A motion by Pomerene, demo
crat, to appoint a conciliation committee to prepare a com
promise, was defeated. The unamended treaty was like
wise defeated.
The "mild reservationists" holding the balance of
power, lined up solidly with the Lodge reactionaries mak
ing a solid republican majority against securing changes
in . the Lodge program that would have insured the pas
sage of the treaty. It was the Lodge treaty or none. The
democrats mustered more than enough votes to kill the
Lodge "nullification"' and the treaty was killed.
The democrats blundered in withholding compromise
offers until the final moment. The republicans blundered
in spurning the compromise when it was offered. As for
Lodge, he has accomplished his purpose, for he long ago
said: "Every country can take care of itself and I have
never thought it was. our duty to look after them" and
his every effort has been, to defeat the league of nations.
me than if I had gone and ordered It
myself with your approval."
There Is nothing in this world that
a woman so appreciates as the knowl
edge that her husband is sometimes
thinking of her when he is. away from
her. It makes no difference if it is a
half pound of candy, a bunch of vio
lets, a pair of silk stockings or kid
gloves, or a motor car I believe that
the glow that surrounds her heart
when he unexpectedly brings anyone
of them to her is the same. Many times

"What have you been doing to your
self, or is it that extremely smart out
fit you're wearing?"
John turned and looked at me with
such ostentation and surprise that ev
eryone laughed.
"You don't mean to tell me," said
Alice, "that you hadnt noticed that
perfectly new frock and how becom
ing It was, before ?"
"We weren't interested in frocks.

"Well, hurry up. Jump Into the
car, sweetheart. We are late for our
luncheon,", he said.
"Well, we have a mighty good ex
cuse." , .
John grinned down at me.
"Kate." he said, "I never knew be
fore how much fun it was to give a
real woman a present."
"Have you been given them to coun
terfeits?" I asked, as the picture of
Bessie and .John in conversation over
her dinner ring rose in mind.
"That's Just what I have been do
ing," said John, rather grimly. "But
I shan't do it any more, dear."
Again the horizon of my hannlness
lost itself in a golden haze. Why should
I care if John had given twenty girls
twenty rings before he knew me? I
had forgotten every annoyance I had
in tho world and was my usual happy
self as I left the car at the clubhouse
and went up he stops to the piazza
where our friends were awaiting us.
"Good gracious, John," said his sis
ter, "do you mean to tell me that you

Kate? Why, it's the very tar I have
been trying to persuade. Tom to buy

"Yes, this is my wedding present

New York, Nov. 21. "There Is no
such thing as a permanent solution
of the railroad problem," declared B.
H. Meyer, Interstate commerce com
missioner, in un address read before
the Academy of Political Science here
today. -
"The problem is permanent, not
the solution. The railway itself, as we
now know it, may not prove ns per
manent an Institution as wo are ac
customed to think it to be. Even tho
time should demonstrate it to be such,
it dues ttot follow that iegMatlou gov

scribing relations between owner and
users and workers can be permanent.
"Whether congress, adopts the Cum
mins, plan, the Each plan, the Plumb
plan or any other plan or combination
ol plans, problems of rates and serv
ice will demand consideration on their
merits and in their varied aspects of
chunking Industrial and social condi
tions and interests."
Frank II. Ulxon, professor of trans
portatlon nt Princeton, said there
must be a government guarantee if
rnllwnv credit over will be restored to
a healthy status.
"Nothing short of wholohearted ac
ceptance of the principle of public
eervlce and lis application to railway
administration and operation will
avc the country from the doubtful
experiment of government ownership1'
Ito said. '
"If a man would give me a car like

not to mention my frock!
My happiness was made superlative
by hearing John say, sotto voce:.
"True for you, young woman."

PUSSYFOOT" JOHNSON who is leading the American
crusade to make England dry, is having a hard time
of it. He is jeered and hooted down at meetings and last
week was beaten-up and ridden about London on a plank
by a crowd of students until rescued by the police.
"Pussyfoot," however, is a good sport. Sitting up
next day in his hospital cot, lie told the British that he
enjoyed eveiy moment of his plank ride and except for
his bruised optic, did not mind the experience in the least.
1 Johnson was sent to England by the anti-saloon lea
gue to secure the passage of ; Sumptuary -dry laws---and
his coming is resented by the "beerage" of Britain. .Al
ready his nickname i3 being applied to the drys who in
a debate in Commons were styled "pussyfooters," and
the publicity he is receiving is the best aid to his cause.
Johnson won his .title as "Pussyfoot" in Indian Ter
ritory years ago, where his job was to hunt down boot
leggers and suppress the sale of liquor to Indians. He
was pronounced a "darned nuisance" but proved most ef
ficient. He was absolutely fearless, was frequently shot
at, had three deputies killed at his side. Calm and delib
erate, he enjoyed a fight and was never whipped.He would
creep upon his quarry as a cat might, assume disquises,' or
resort to any strategy to catch and land his victim.
The British wets had better keep an eye on "Pussy
foot" whose movements are "quiet as those of a cat in a
feather bod, but who always moves."
