(•) In fact, quite a few people did go j to prison for saying tho same sort of j I thing which you will hear many mem- \ I bers of Congress saying this winter | i without protest. i You can imagine what a peculiar feeling comes to Senator George W. Norris, who with a few others voted against the war and was pilloried for that, now a vast number of Americans —judging from the strength of the neutrality movement—have come to believe our entry was all a big mistake. Since Congress adjourned after passing a makeshift compromise neutrality l»\v, there has been no end of discussion of this matter in the public prints, which will echo in tho winter debate. G'nc thread of the argument in which men who were- important at the time have participated centered on what Woodrow Wilson himself finally thought of it all. Since probably only a small minority of readers have followed it, your correspondent undertakes to trace its outline. Protests for Morgan On October 18, Thomas W.

By the mid-1700s, Macao had become the real center for Chinese trade with Europe. It boasted a cathedral and a bishop's palace. Then, in 1842, the British established their city on the island of Hong-Hong, 35 miles away across the mouth cif the Canton river. Trade began to drift away from Macao. In 18-19 the Portuguese dispossessed the Chinese custom officials, and stopped paying any rental. And in 1887 China granted her sovereign rights over the liny peninsula.

That brought to six the number who claimed to have seen her or heard he-r voice hours after the supposed time of death. Johnson and other investigators discounted those reports.
