If we can get back to this point assured peace will function, and the rest should be easy. President Roose velt now has an opportunity of Immortalising himself and of doing for America and the world what Woodrow Wilson so badly missed. CONTINUING CONFIDENCE.

To Australia, the Dutch East Indies navy must always have a special interest, because she and Holland share the same seas, and. If attack is to be feared, It must almost certainly come to each from the same direction. Each, however, has designed Its navy according to a very different model. The Australian Navy developed from the British Navy, and has always had more or less the character of an outlying squadron of that navy a cruiser force with a minimum of attendant vessels. Holland, on the other hand, wllh no powerful metropolitan fleet to look to for support and for a variety of specialist services, and with a limited purse, has built up a mosquito fleet Into which she has tried lo put the greatest possible sulking power and mobility at the least possible cost. THREE CRUISERS. Cruisers there are In the Dulh East Indies squadron. There are three of them, the De Ruyter, "It's nice to get up in the morning," runs the old music-hall ditty, "but it's nicer to stay In bed." Mr. Ctirtin. Mr. Beasley. and tneir respective cohorts have evidently taken Ihe song lo heart, for they undertake, in the evtnl of labour's success at the polls on October 23. to fo art-anise matters llm oerybody may stay nicely tucked In bed on two mornings a wock instead of one. There has been some impulsive unbosoming by the leader of the Opposition on ihe subject of the 40-hour week, and on what he regards News of Holland's plans for giving j the cloying Inactivity of the Government ill minium tu It., II may be that a really expert politician vuhai r.h citv Council had in mind, added Alderman Harding, was the construction of but lis nearer to the centre of the city. The water for the filling and replenishing of the baths would be pumped from a section of Farm Cove, where there was little danger of pollution. The water would be filtered before being allowed Into the baths. u would be renewed at regular Intervals.

An Old Question. We are all aware, or should he, lhat the question of the adoption of ihe 40-hour week as a standard has bcn before the International Labour Conference since I93'i. From being a new and startling proposition, it la almost decrepitly old. At. the International Conference nf 1935 when a general convention wits approved the Australian delegate, sir Frederick Stewarl was Instructed to vote for It, and to intimate that if the leading competing nations con-denied to ratification, the Commonwealth would follow suit. The Lyons Government reported the situation to the stale Governments, but these failed to odiee ill their views, and still disagree Meanwhile. Ihe experiment of the 40-hour week has been tried In Italy and France, with results lhat quickly forced both countries to modify It. New Zealand, taking advantage of Ihe present boom in export trade, is also testing out the Innovation, but, even there with socialisation in the air, tile attempt la a tentative one, with strict qualifications.

In loviog memory of our dear mother received from China anrl lunun i, id grandmother. Margaret Moss, who passed away "civetl irura Onilia and Japan, it :tober i. i93. sadly missed by j.cV ivy, add shows clearly that the news of bomb ings and general savagery by Japan is substantiated, and that, while China may have been using similar methods of warfare In the north, the essential truth about the south la con firmed. This broadly Is the way in which modern warfare is being conducted. Japan's policy has been to annihilate the principal cities of China so as to hamstring Chinese finance. Whatever may be said in the way of palliation about the provocation Japan has received, it is clear that no feeling of mercy for women and children and helpless non-combatants has been allowed to interfere with Japan's determination to smash China Into complete ruin, if she dares to continue to assert her nationhood. It may be, no doubt. Japan's original purpose was simply to deal with the northern provinces. The course ot events may have forced her hand, and made the war one of China as a whole, with its 400 million people, as the prlxe. This necessarily involves the whole of Asia as the ultimate goal of conquest. Aerial warfare developed in unex pected proportions until we now are realising the horrors of its completeness. Not armies, but all non- combatants nations against nations are Involved. This, however, began with the Great War. A recent corre spondent asked In this connection what difference can be found between the giant shells which the Germans fired from their Big Bertha upon Paris and bombing from the air. It was the non combatants in the streets of Paris that became the target. If Paris could have been laid in ruins and the French people had been paralysed Into panic and despair, would not the war have been more than half won? Is not the Japanese objective the same? We do not offer these questions as a palliative for hideous wrong. It Is one of the comforting things about a situation dally becoming more dlffl cult and complicated that the civilised world should be horrified by the news of bombing atrocities which comes through day by day from sources of undoubted authenticity, and that America la making her protest. If there Is anything In these rising choruses of condemnation and demands for boy cotts ot all Japanese goods, it must be in the growing sense among the nations that war must end. Bul It Is not end Ing. Mere shaking of fists and threats of execration will not stop a single Japanese bomb from dropping and a spasmodic boycott may easily result In more desperate deeds of cruelty. But because war Is wllh us. policy of Labour leads. It also encourages a leaning back on government, a looking to government to engage In Industry, and for all to become Government employees. Government would then become autocratic, would Insist on the workers slaving under conditions which the thai whin hostilities began, the Japanese had onlv up to 40UU troops I including reinmrce- mihtsi to protect a community of about 20,000 to 25.000 civilians. ' After their experience In 193a. ll is Inconceivable that, confronted by 20 to 30 thousand troops drawn from China's German-trained divisions, they would have opened an offensive." If Shanghai hostilities started In 1032 as an "adventure" or tile Japanese Navy, the present clash scents a direct outcome of Japan's policy in North China, and Ihe intense anti-Japanese feeling Government would lav riuwn Th. rnnn. mused bv it amongst the Chinese in the south linn nf envrnm..it tn a ., i- , Japanese olYiclftls and papers certainly stressed lion or government to-day is to pro- lneil , - localisinti" the North China vide Justice for all in every sphere of ! trouble, which meant, confining hostilities to life.

A continuation ot the confidence which the Lyons Government secured for Australia depends upon the decision of the electors on October 211. The policy which the Lyons Government has placed before the electors Is the sequel of the policy of the past six years. Sound finance is in the fore front, and all that Government can do to help Industry, both primary and manufacturing, to progress. Wider markets are to be sought, and the tariff Is to be used to efficient and economic undertak ings, that Is efficient and economic In the national sense. The proposals for national Insurance are a natural expansion of social service already undertaken by the Commonwealth. Old age is already provided for. Under the national Insurance proposals costs accruing from Illness will be met, and the Government Intends to legislate for a contributory scheme by which each party to the contract, employees, employers, and the people as a whole through the Government, will bear an equal share of the cost. A contributory ' scheme ' enhances the Independence of the recipient . and enables him to claim the full measure of service as a right. There would then be no need for him to ask for ll as charity, and undergo an Inquiry at to IW necessity. On the main aspects of national lite, financial, Industrial, and social, the policy of the Government. ensures, so far as is humanly possible, a prolongation of the period of pros-; pern.y.

In trade relations with Poland. Australia has a very favourable balance, despite the smallness of the operations. In 1935-36 Australia exported In Poland goods valued at A982,02I. of which A768,614 represented shipments of greasy wool, and received goods of Polish origin valued at alg38.67S, Umber and seeds being the principal Imports. One of the main functions of the Marl-time and Colonial League Is to exhibit oversea goods, display photographs, and secure statistical data and other information about oversea countries, showing them as potential markets for Poland's Import and export trade. .

The first tlnv flotilla of two boats was lost In trie war one In New Guinea waters, and the other In Turkish. The second, acquired after the wat was soon placed out of commission: ine third was sold to the Royal Navy. The unofficial naval opinion has been expressed hat submarines are not suited to service along Australian long coastline, and In her wide oceans yet Australia's sea frontier is in the north and In just such narrow seas as those in which the Dutch maintain iheir powerful submarine flotilla, and the Royal Navy it-lr has stationed the considerable submarine force that belongs to tne uiina nut. USE OF AIRCRAFT. There are other Interesting contrasts between the composition of the Australian squadron on the one hand, and of the British and Dutch Far Eastern squadrons, on the other. Outstanding Is the relatively greater Interest taken by Britain and Holland In marine aircraft. In minelayers, and lin the case of Ho -land) In equipping even small craft with their own seaplanes for reconnaissance. In tne Dutch squadron ships comparable wllh tne sloops Swan and Yarra. carry their own plane. I So do Ihe French sloops Rigault de Oenouilly and Amirs I Charner, which are well-known '"in'thlT'past. Australian naval policy seems often to have been laid down by administrators whose eyes were turned east or west, rather thBn north. Recent developments, particularly the fortification of Darwin and the announcement made at the presentation of the last, naval estimates, of the Intention to build three small vessels (so far undefined) and to devote more attention to anti-submarine work, suggest that this policy Is lo be modified. In any case, the naval policy of our neighbours, the Dutch, must In the future be of The position as it stand seems to be this: I'he Commonwealth, as a member of the Inter national Labour Conference. Is reoulreri to obtain the consent or the several Stales before ii can ratuy tne convention. Ii Is noi competent for Ihe Government to pass legislation or to lake any other action to give effect to the convention generally. And lhat. naturally. Is a do nt on which Mr. Curtin maintains a stony reticence. l ne powers or the Commonwealth Parliament are. al present, limited lo Ihe adontinn nf the 40-hour week in the territories directly tinner ha control, utnerwlse. even in relation lo Industries regulated by awards under Ihe Commonwealth Conciliation and Arbitration Act. It is apparently as helpless as a newborn bane. This view of the constitutions! position Is shared by Ihe more Important legal advisers of the Opposition, though Us leader and his lleulenanls have nol been candid enough lo say so. A Matter for Caution. BOYCOTTS AND FUNDAHENTALS. All these considerations must be examined al least before Judgment is passed on Japan by a boycott. Evidence should be heard from tlie accused before the black cap La donned. If Japan says she must fight because others do not allow her sufficient trade. It does nol get very far if one retaliates by restricting her trade still rurther. Boycotts are superficial movements In this sense: they do not assist louch the fundamental issues. II Is doubtful uvtii.h,i- an r.nt. -.Innuneae boycott cou d eneci its nurooscs. The immediate sufferer is our own shopkeeper, retailer, and importer, who uannot dispose of Japanese stocks bought and paid for. 11 It Is made Australian-wide, our wool-growers will suffer, for a boycott Is a nastv economic boomerang. Politically. It Is at least unwise to have hatred between us and our Pacific neighbour. And a boycott means bitterness. I Will such a boycott punisn japan t as Miss Freda Utley points out . in . the July "Asia." Japan is particularly vulnerable to economic shocks, and boycotts will undoubtedly harm Japanese industries and people. But ihe Army will nol suffer unless a boycott Is genuinely International on a collective basis. with American participation, in mat case Japan might be defeated, the militarists overthrown, and a moderate pulley ensured. But individual or group boycotts will hardly slop the Army from waging war In China. In fact, aa with sanctions against Italy, they will almost certainly deepen patriotic fervour In Japan and drive the nation lo fight bitterly. Nor will they stop aerial atrocities In the future.

What, for instance, would be the effect on the standard of living, on wages, on employment, on prices, on trade, and on production? Would the 40-hour week mean Increased wortc and better conditions, or would it mean lesi work and worse conditions? Obviously the Labour party has no intention of answering these questions, if only for the reason that It cannot, powdbly do so without the necessary data to go upon. The wish being father to th? thought. It has made a definite promise, and is prepared to legislate blindly, so long as the electors sre suftielontly Incnutiou.s to give a mandate absolv.

POINT PIPER FLATS. Outnumbered by Houses. MAYOR'S STATEMENT. -The Mayor of Woollahra i Alderman A. Griffith) staled yesterday thai private dwellings outnumbered flats bv more than two lo one In the Potts Point and Woollahra Point areas. Mr. Griffith said that in a statement, pub lished In Ihe "Herald" on Friday last. Mr. Henry E. While, architect ror the flats al Point Piper banned by the council, described the rejected proposal as one for a building of nine stories. Mr. While had certainly expressed his opinion as a witness before Judge Sheridan, that the building was one of nine stories, bul his contention was rejected by Judge Sheridan, who held that the building was one nt 13 stories. Mr. While further stated that if five separate flats were erected on the area, there would then be 10 separata residences. It was somewhat difficult to follow thla statement, unless, uf course, one as sumed some such proposal as one lo erect five separate buildings, each comprising 14 flats, and that such application were approved by the Woollahra council, both of wnicn assumptions, at this stage, seem somewhat large. Alderman Griffith said that, the sketeh Pro duced in Friday's "Herald" was definitely nol a sketch of the mock or nuts wnicn was submitted lo the Wooliahta Council for approval. One of the principal differences was that the submitted plans were ot a building with an internal light well, which expert evidence and Judge Sheridan united In condemning. The treatment of the foreground s shown In the sketch was also entirely at variance with the true position, as Mr. White conveniently omitted to mention that the existing building, known as Schoflcld House, was to have remained in its present position immediately In front or the proposed new building. "One can. ot course, excuse a certain amount or artistic llbertv In preparing such sketch.' said Mr. Griffith, "but In the light ol th true racl. the liberty in this oa-'e appear to have gone far past the bounds or licence.
