THE OBSTACLE TO PROSI'KKITY
The chief obstacle now standing in
the way of American prosperity seems
to be the holding up of 1 1,500.000,001
of claim baaed on informal war con
tracts. Owing to a lack of technical
authority for the payment of these
claims by the government, the con
tractors are unable to pay the sub
contractors, and the subcontractors
are unable to pay their bills for labor
and materials.
This drains the springs of business.
Those who supplied the raw materials
cannot pay their labor. Employes are
unable to pay their own bills. Th.
public spending power is curtailed and
credit is tightened. Workmen lose
their jobs. So things tend to slow
down, just when they ought to be
speeding up.
It is especially bad that this h.".p
pens just when our army is being de
mobilized and the soldiers come home
expecting to drop into paying places
in a busy industrial system.
No duty of the government, there
fore, is more important than the
prompt handling and settlement of
these claims, as recommended by Sec
rotary of War Baker. The interests
concerned are justified in demanding
that congress provide the requisite
authorization without delay.
MINE SWEEPERS
Throughout the war a notable work
has been going on. accorded little no
tice and yet involving a bravery which
mitkes it one of the romances of the
sea. This is the sweepine of mines
from the waters in order that the big
battleshins and transports may ap
proach their harbors in safety.
All sorts of small craft have been
equipped and pressed into this dan
gerous but necessary service. Seven
vessels have been constantly employed
around the British Isles alone.
Each month the minesweepers oper
ating in various parts of the seas have
swept up the mines from 46,000 square
miles of water. It was latelv estim
ated that in all they had traveled some
1,132.000 miles, and every mile was
fraught with danger.
CASTING OUT THE OLD
No better evidence of German stu
pidity and effrontery exists than the
present attempt to bring about peace
settlements under the leadership of
the very men who are abhorrent to all
the world as the instigators and coun
cillors in the war of duplicity and hor
ror. The refusal of Mr. Hoover to deal
with either von der Lancken or Rieth
should convey some idea to the Ger
man mind as to the feeling existent
against men of this type. It should
warn the German leaders, too, that
the increasing power of von Bemstorff
will have to be checked before Berlin
can deal with America.
The United States will have no time
for a von Bernsfoif fed Germany. She
remembers too well his connectior
with plots to olow up her grain ele
vators and disrupt her labor system
while he was OiUnsibly the represent-
M.e here of a friendly power.
H.'ndenburt, too. will have to go,
with his daily addresses to his un
beaten armies, and his suspected loy
ally to the Hohenzollern regime.
Lntil hy easting out these old lead
ers she confirms her assertions of dis
approval of their conduct, Germany
can hope for no listening ear from the
r.llies.

COMPLETE CHAOS IN RUSSIA
Inevitable Anarchy as the Result of
Insufficient Supplies of F-od
for the People.
By far the most terrible toll of the
Russian winter will be taken Id the
peasant villa jres, the home of nine
tenths of Russia's lSO.OHtVW. Oliver
M. Sayler writes la the Saturday Kve
nlnj; Post. The sullen and defiant
muzhik, who bus planted for himself
and only for himself, hasn't taken In
to account the possibility that supvrior
force from the city or from his own or
a neighboring village may seize his
grain. When the calamity befalls, an
endless train of disaster and bloodshed
and starvation will follow in its wake.
Reprisal on some wcuker peasant
will be the next step, and from that
the flame will spread to virulent bor
der warfare with whole villap-s on
the trail to plunder the grain 1 ins of
others or Intrenchel to protect their
own. In some districts, even lefore 1
left, this most cruel form of civil strife
had broken out.
I contemplated returning from Pet
rograd to Moscow by sleigh overland
in ense the German advance enveloped
the mil road outlets. Careful Investiga
tion, however, disclosed the fact that
machine guns, brought home from the
front, were mounted on all the road
