Somewhere, somehow, somebody slipped a joker in

cost of maintaining the highway shall be borne by the

fctates. And now conies the news that the Hawley bill, de

was not at all in the same position with respect to the
kaiser as the premier of Great Britain or Italy with re

responsible to the kaiser alone he owed no account
ability to the German Reichstag, and offered none. He
was accountable solely to his master, Wilhelm, who boast

fact clearly puts uon the kaiser the responsibility for the

Britain 's "Colonial Empire"
During the war, different powers of
the alliance came into the iiossession
of various territories or colonies, and,
it the time of the opening of the peaeo
conference, some of thcaa gave evi
dence of a strong desire to continue
such poRS'ssion for their own benefit.
On tho other hand, Great Britain die-
ulaved a verv sironi: disinclination to
expose herself to the charge of having
waned war to extend her colonial Oiu-
pi re. (ienernl fmiiits proposal iurnisn-
ed a solution of 'both of these difficul

In every instance, the mandatary is
required to render to the council au

a permanent commission is to be con

reports, and to advise the council oa

Not Ready for Self Governments
The African colonies are, anil for
many years will be, incapable of gov

Mesopotamia, Syria and Armenia are
occupied by peoples unaccustomed to
iclf government, and' incurable, at the
iresent time, of being entrusted wifh
omplete political autonomy. While
ach of these ciuntries was occupied

s'ssion was the result of the combined
effort of the allies, and no one power
is warranted in claiming the right, or
should be changed with the duty of
continued occupation and sole respon

gions. The suggestion of (ieneral Smuts

"Sacred Turst of Civilization"
. Article XXII of the revised cove

plied to that problem::
"the pricniple that the well being and
development of such peoples form a
sacred trust of civilization aud that
securities for the performance of this
trust should be embodied in this cove

practical effect to this principle to be
that the tutelage of such peoples be en
trusted to advanced nations, who, by
reason of their resources, experience or
geographical position, can best under
take this reioiisilrility and that the

they should act must differ according performance of such
