J 1ST A MATTER 01'
an interpretation thr: will tell the
world JiUt where the United States
stands before we enter tho league
and not an interpretation that will
tell us where we stand afer we get
into it. The senate is profiting by
the experience of this countrv in the
matter of the Panama Conal. "When
the United States decided to sppnd
tho millions necessary to construct
that waterway, tt entered into a
treaty with England. 'No one ever
suspected that there was anything
in that treaty that needed interpre
tation until after the canal was open
ed, and then it was discovered that
the United States could not extend
any special consideration to her
Coastwise ships. They were on Just
the same footing as the ships of anv
other nation, and the act of Congress
extending to them free use of the
canal was repealed upon the speci
fic request of President Wilson and
upon the specific interpretation of
that treaty by England.
Already diplomatic experts have
found In the peace treaty what they
believe to be conditions that are sus
ceptible of a construction that will
work against the interests of the
United States, Just as the interpreta
tion of the Panama Canal treaty did.
President Wilson should not object,
nor should any other true-American
object, to a clear Interpretation of
the treaty before its acceptance. If
4t is not against the interests of
America, then no one can object to
having every doubt cleared up In
advance. If It Is, then It is all the
more necessary that It should
done. Such a proceedure is clearly
along the lines laid down by the
president when he declared for "op
en covenant openly arrived at."
"While this fundamental principle
was lost with so many of the qthers
he laid down, it Is not too late jto
rescue it and put it into force and
effect by openly stating Just what
may be expected of the United
States, even if in doing so it will be
necessary to cast aside some of the
dictatorial characteristics the presi
dent seems to have acquired during
his brief stay on the other side.
"About shortage oi refrigerator
cars to move fresh fruits and vege
tables from California much has
been said, "declared Sproule, "upon
the assumption that the railroad
admlnstratiou has failed somehow
to provide in advanco the cars to
handle the business.
"The Pacific Fruit Express has
15,000 refrigerator cars for this
business, and the Santa Fe Refri
gerator Despatch, about 10,000.
Through the efforts of the Railroad
Administration, about 5,000 other
refrigerators were sent to California
for this service and kept in it until
the demands from other states had
to be met. The Administration nus
been and is alive to the public needs.
"The fruit and vegetable crops
throughout the United States haze
been very large and shipments very
heavy. Every car that could be had
anywhere has been pressed into this
national service. Not only is the
fruit run in special trains; special
service is also given the refrigera
tors returning, in preference to
every kind of freight except live
stock. It has been suggested that
meat cars, and beer cars, also, could
be loaded with fruit, but this cannot
be done. Meat cars have fixed meat
racks, hooks and brine tanks; beer
cars have no tanks of any kind.
Shippers would not load fiuit in
"Let us remember that although
California is the great fruit and
vegetable growing state, it is only
one of the many states growing such
perishables for quantity for market.
The productions of fruit supplies
was greatly stimulated during the
war, but during the war refrigera
tor cars could not be built. This
stimulation is still felt and it nat
urally creates acute demand for
each refrigerator car in thlg year
when the crops requiring such cars
are heavy everywhere from Califor
nia to Georgia, and from Florida to
the Pacific Northwest. It is a crop
surplus rather than a car shortage.
For the past three months of this
year, shipments from California are
not far from fifty percent above
what they were during the same
period last year.
"At present there is added the
call for refrigerators that grapes
may be shipped to other markets

The Year's Most
Pleasing New Sedan
THE season offers no other sedan so pleasing in the beauty of its
lines and its furnishings, as the new series Chandler Sedan. And
there is none that may be compared with it at anything like its price.
The new Chandler Sedan is the highest expression of years of
development in the creation of closed bodies. It is beautiful to look
at, and most comfortable to ride in. It has style and refinement that
must appeal to those who care for the finer things.
This car seats sevenpersons most comfortably or five when auxiliary
chairs are not in use. The front seat is solid, not divided as in previou
models, and the window posts are a permanent part of the body, not
removable. The windows, however, may be lowered away or adjusted
to suit the weajther and the wish. The entire interior is upholstered
in finest quality silk-plush of pleasing pattern for cushions and plain
tone for head lining. Interior fittings are in dull silver finish.
Despite the largest production in the history of the Chandler
company, the demand for the new series sedan will quickly con
sume the production for weeks to come. Your early order will
' be a safeguard against disappointment.
