pcheuie means much for the entire civ
liized world. 1 1 : 1 n jlj been devised
mainly by Americana, It adds to the
prestige of America,
Wars were few and not especially
important Internationally. The out
standing ones were the civil war for
the control of the government of
China, the attempt of Spain to ron
iuer the rebellious tribesmen of llo
rocco, the suppression of o rebellion
In Mexico and a long drawn-out revo
latlonnry movement in Brar.il. There
were also several of the always-to-be
expected Internecine conflicts In Vn
tral America On the whole Mars had
rather an Idle year. For a time the i
nl arm I st i talked of war between the
I'nlted States and Japan over tin
Japanese exclusion clause In the new
American Immigration law, hut the
crisis was passed safely, for the time
ui least.
Great Britain experienced the nov
I ty of being under a Labor govern
ment which was fairly successful unll1
It got tangled up with the Russian
Soviets, whereupon It was ousted, tin
Conservatives winning the parllamen
tary elections by large majorities
Stanley Baldwin again became prime
minister, During the first qqarter of
the year the soviet government ol
Russia won recognition from ulmost
every Import tit country except the j
I'nlted States, hut the soviet leaders
continued to recede from their Hoi i
Mievlk principles. Socialists captured
ttie government of France and llerrlot
became premier. President Mnstapha
Jv'etnul of Turkey and I delator Musso
1 1 ill of Italy were subjected to severe
attacks from political opponents and
were forced to more liberal attitudes
In the I'nlted Slates the biggest
event of the year was the national
election, together with the sensational
Democratic convention which resulted
In the nomination of John W. Davis
and Charles W B r a n, and tlie inde
pendent candidacy of ?et:t.ior I.al'ol
lette and Senator Wheeler on a radl
cal platform. Despite the oil reserve
scundal that had laid the Republican
administration open to attack, the
voters of the land, hv a plurality of
about 10,000,000, decided Hint Calvin
Coolldge should continue in the presi
dential office, wllh Charles dates
Inwes as vice PHiHsnt, During the
long months of the campaign business
In the United States bail languished
but Immediately alter the election It
revived rapidly, and at the s.-itne time
there began a considerable boom In
securities on the stock exchanges
subscribed In most countries. German
Industry responded instantly and the
smooth and efficient operation of the
Dawes plan seemei assured.
Several attempts were made during
fhe year to forward the further reduc
tion of armaments by agreement, but
nothing definite was accomplished un
til September, when Prime Minister
MacDonald of Great Britain submit
ted to the League of Nations his plan
for an international agreement for se
curity, arbitration and disarmament.
The discussion was heated, and Japan
refused to adhere because the plan
prohibited -wars based on internal poli
cies of nations. Her delegates did not
conceal the fact that they were re
ferring especially to the Japnnese ex
clusion clause of the American immi
gration law, which already had caused
protests from Tokyo and boycotts and
threats against Americans In Japan.
They Insisted tlie agreement must pro
vide that any nation might ask the
league to arbitrate Internal affairs of
any other nation, and the league as
sembly yielded to them and adopted
I he protocol with such amendment
Assent of the legislative bodies of all
member nations of course was requi
site, and as time went on it became
evident this could not be obtained.
Tlie British parliament, it was be
lieved, was almost certain not to agree
since Canada, Australia and New Zea
land were bitterly opposed.
In October Great Britain and Tur
key were at swords' points over the
old Mosul oil fields dispute, but they
submitted the matter to tlie League of
Nations council, which ordered the
status quo be maintained for the pres
ent. Sir Lee Stack, sirdar of the Egyp
tian army and governor general of the
Sudan, was murdered by Egyptian na
tionalists In November. The British
government, swiftly moving warships
and troops to strategic positions, de
mantled an apology, Indemnity of $2,- I
:(M).ooo, punishment of the assassins,
and, most important, concessions con
cerning the Sudan and the great Irri
gation project there. Premier Zagloul
Pasha resigned and Zlwar, bis sue
cesaor yielded to all the demands. The
mot of tlie trouble was the control of
the Sudan, which was claimed by both
nations.
Great Britain's war debt to the Unit
ed States was funded on a basis gen
orally satisfactory, and late in tlie year
France began negotiations to fund her
debt to us. The British government at
once announced that If France or any
other nation that was In debt to Brit
ain paid the I'nlted States, she would
expect to receive payment from them
In proportion. This checked tlie pro
i dings for ttie time. Poland already
had arranged for the funding of her
American debt.
The Irish Free State registered With
the League of Nations the treaty with
England by which it was granted Its
measure of Independence, but In De
camber the British government pro
tested against this action, asserting
thai the league had nothing to do with
arrangements between sections of the
British empire.

March 25 the assembly, ignoring the
protests of Grent Britain, voted to de
pose tlie Glucksbourg dynasty and es
tablish a republic, subject to a plebis
cite. The people voted in favor of the
republic on April 13 and the royal
family went into exile. Nlcolai Lenin,
tlie master mind of soviet Russia, who
had been Incapacitated for a long
time, died on January 21 and Alexis ,
Rykov was chosen to succeed him as
premier. The funeral of Lenin was an
extraordinary demonstration and his
politics. Nearly a score of names
were presented for the presidential
nomination, with William G. McAdoo
and Gov. Al Smith of New York lead
ing. The former was credited with
support from the Ku Klux klan and
the latter Is a Roman Catholic, there
fore the religious Issue became de
plorably prominent. The committee
on resolutions struggled over two
points especially whether or not the

With the aid of the Liberals In par
llament, the Labor government of
(ireat Britain functioned through QIOSI
of the year. It took office on Junuun
22 with Ramsay MacDonald as prime
minister, Its policies were fairly mod
srate, but several of its bills were
beaten, notably those for the nld of
the poor and for the nationalization of
mines. It did not resign because no
party then had a majority In pnrlla
ment. However, the people rebelled
against the treaties with aovlet Bus
sla which MacDonald negotiated, and
on October 8 the house of commons
refused him a vote of confidence. Par
liament was at once prorogued and
the general election set for October
2. At the polls the Conservatives
won an overwhelming victory, getting
41,3 of the HO seats In the house The
Liberal party seemed almost wiped
out and the I.nborltes suffered hen
losses Stanley Baldwin was selected
to be prime minister again and on No
vember fl his government took ottlee.
To the great relief of France, Austen
Chamberlain was made foreign score
tary Instead of Lord Curzon. Winston
Churchill, a free trader and deter
mined foe of socialism, was named
chancellor of tlie exchequer.
England's moat serious trouble In
I Ira ail) continued to be unomp'ov
ment. This Increased through the
year, and so, unfortunately, did the
cost of living. In February there was
a great dockers' strike which threat
etieil to cut off most of tlie count rjr'S
food supplies. But through the efforts
of MacDonald and his colleagues It
was soon settled.
France changed her government
twbe Premier Polncare was not In
sympathy with tlie movement to re
store friendly relations with Cermanv.
and on June 1 he reelgned Francois
Marsal formed a ministry which lamed
onh a few duya, and then Presldcni
Mlllerand also gave up his ofllce. The
radical Socialists who are not so
radical there as In some countries
took charge and made Edouard Her
riot premier, after Huston Domergue
had been elected President. On Sep
tember SO France turned out a bal
anced budget for the first time In ten
years.
Auatrla In November lost the lnnl
uable services of her chancellor. Mgr.
Selpel, who resigned bemuse of n gen
eral railway strike for higher wages
and other unsatisfactory conditions
due largely to the greedy profiteers of
Vienna He was succevded by Ru
dolph ItHtnek. Al une time or another
during the year the governments of
Japan, Belgium. Albania, South Africa,

throne, but had no better success than
Ids father, for In the middle of Octo
ber Wahabls occupied Mecca.
Germany's relchstag was dissolved
March 1! and a hot campaign ensued
fhe Nationalists planning to restore
the monarchy., In the elections the
Social Democrats easily won. The
cabinet of Chancellor Marx resigned
May 27. but ho was retained In office
gain in October the relchstag
dissolved, Marx having failed to re
organize the ministry satisfactorily
Thereupon he cut loose entirely from
the Nationalists. New elections wen
held December 7. On November 7 the
German budget was balanced for tin
first lime since the war. The relchs
tag elections came on December 7 and
i he three parties supporting the repub
lie and the Dawes plan won the most
seats; However, Chancellor Mar:
found It so difficult to form a new cabl
net that be and his ministers resigned
on December 15, carrying on until
their successors could he chosen.
Tfae Fascist! won the Italian elec
tions on April '!, toit the tide against
Fascism rose steadily. Slg. Matteottl
a Socialist deputy, was kidnaped and
murdered by Fascist! in June and Pre
mler Mussolini faced a crisis which he
survived only by the most energetb
action. He dissolved the national ml
lltla and reorganized his government
and some of his prominent supporter
were ousted. His opponents were kept
fairly quiet until November when
confronted by another attack In par
liament. Mussolini frankly admitted
the faults of (he Fascists and prom
ised to punish their excesses and to
curb their utterances, beginning with
himself.
China's civil war for 1924 broke out
September 3 In the Shanghai region
between the armies of Cheklang and
Klangsu provinces, the former being
backed by Hen. Wu Pei-fu, military
(illeftak) of the Peking government
and the latter having the moral sup
port of Marshal Chang Tso-lln of Man
churln, The Cbekinng troops were
victorious after a long campaign, but
meanwhile Chung had moved on
Peking and defeated his old enemv
other would do the same. Day after
day the voting went on, most of the
other aspirants dropping out one by
one. As the one hundredth ballot drew
near the vote for John W. Duvls he
ran to grow. On the one hundred and
bird ballot the break came and Davis
obtained a majority. The nomination
was then made unanimous. Out of a
'o:'cn names put up for the vice presi
dency, Mr. Davis selected thnt of
'""hnrles W. Bryan, governor of Ne
braska and brother of William J., and
he was nominated.
While this was going on Senator La
Follette became the candidate of a
third party that called Itself the Pro
gressive. He was Indorsed by the
'hlefs of the Federation of Labor,
ind, apparently against his will, by
he Socialist party. Senator Burton
K. Wheeler of Montana was given sec
ond place on tlie ticket. There were
icveral other candidates, as usual
.vho cut no figure In the results. The
evident plan of the LaFollette follow
ng was lo cause a deadlock in tlie
doctoral college and throw tlie elec
'ion Into congress.
When the votes of the nation were
-minted on the night of November 4
t w as found that Coolldge had cart-led
15 states, with 3S2 votes In tlie elec
oral college: Davis had carried 12
dates, all In the "Solid South," with
136 electoral votes, and LaFollette
md w on only the 13 electoral votes of
Visconsln. Coolldge's popular plural
ty was nerrly 10,000,000. The Re
mbllenns also won complete control i n October 20 when the Supreme court
' commissions stressed the steady de
j cline in our defenses on land anil sea
and in the air, but the President Indi
cated that lie was not in sympathy
with the demands for huge sums to he
expended on armament. The house
' passed the Interior department appro
priation bill carrying a total of ?238,
000,000. : Congress took a holiday recess from
December 20 to December 29.
On December 8 two huge public ben
efactions were announced. James B.
Duke, tobacco and power magnate,
gave $4G,000,000 to educational institu
tions In North and South Carolina;
and George Eastman, head of the East
man Kodak company of Rochester,
N. ., gave $12,000,1)00 to colleges,
schools and hospitals,
INDUSTRIAL AND
LABOR
Labor in the United States had a
prosperous and in general a quiet
year. There was not one general
strike; wages maintained their high
level and in many instances were in
creased. The New York Central Rail
way company increased the pay of 15,
000 employees on January 22; Chicago
teamsters won an Increase in Feb
ruary by n short s-rike. and so did
several other local unions Inter. Wages
