It warns those without blood on their hands to preserve thnt lappy state, or join the rest on the road to the jail house. The section is strong. But so is the fear of the United Nations that the Nazis, once they know they are losing. Will kill and wreck like mad men. The Austrian section is a different sort of warning. It promises a free and independent country. But Austria is "reminded" that she'll be credited at the peace table tor whatever she does now to help herself. And. certainly that's a round robin written for Hungary. Bulgaria, Rumania. a note to get in now so the trading, will be better later. It's curious, isn't it, that of all the invaded countries, as yet am- touched by Anglo-American forces. Auslria is singled out for a special section? The section may be pointed, also, at the Central European powers which want a federation: Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia. Greece. It promises to open the road for Austria, "and those neighboring states which will be faced with similar problems" to political and economic security. What kind of "security?" Exiles from the four states want a federa tion. Prime Minister Churchill has Battle for Choiseul Island expressed approval. Could a Cen- ,ral European federation fit inside he "general international organization" which is .recognized as a necessity? The Italian section may be a pat : tern for Europe, and a "so nice to have knovyn you" to the Balkan Sings, —and lo little Vittorio Emmanuele, of Italy. Italy gets severi short paragraphs which says in effect they'll get a more democratic" nalion. Whether that's'an attempt to soften the blow, or a sing we won't go whole hog on democracy for Italy, is a question. But the section reads oul all fascists, pro-fascists, and fascist institutions, — and'it promises the freedoms in our own constitution —freedom of speech, assemblance, the press, and religion. Certainly, if little Villorio Emmanuel stays with those provisions, the treasury will have to buy him a rubber stamp. It's a curious document. We had nothing like it in the last war except for Woodrow Wolson's fourteen points. — which, after all, were not 'a signed international pact. This Moscow declaration reads like half a peace treaty — a happily reassuring half — but wilh much more to come. . . MONO ISLAND >. Stirling SOLOON ISLANDS CT GROOMING.

Corporal Cleophas Knowles said he death room and the bedscreen 3n which the crown contends the ingerprint was found were under constant guard during the invesli- galion. His testimony at de Marigny's rial for murder differed somewhat, however, from the account ic gavp at a preliminary hearing, and Defense Counsel W. E. A. Cul- .ender shouted: "Another error. The same as Captain Melchen and the olher wilnesses." Capt. E. W. Melchen of Ihe Miami police and olher crown wil- nesses teslified thai de Marigny was laken upslairs at Oakes' eslale, Westbourne, for questioning about noon July 9, whereas at the preliminary hearing they had set the time as midaflernoon.

The issue was put lo the aged king yeslcrday by Premier Piclro Badoglio who, returning from a conference wilh political loaders in Naples, told him lhal ho could never form such a government while Ihe king retained his throne.
