It j is apparent, however, that it has been sufficient to survive the unemployment and part time period and to create a demand which has caused a temporary revival. But no permanent betterment in the industrial situation can be looked for until our markets are closed to the importation of goods made by the pauper paid labor of Europe and Japan. The -emergency tariff enacted last summer by the Republican majority does not meet the situation which has been caused by the decline in value of foreign money. Because of this decline foreign manufacturers are flooding our markets with goods which they can afford to sell to American importers at prices which permit the payment of the emergency tariff ratt and still be below what it would cost the American manufacturers to produce. To permanently change the industrial situation and bring it back to rr-rmal conditions where ou . American manufacturers cm start up their plants and produce goods, it is necessary to place the American manufac turer on an even footing with the foreign manufacturer who is paying his labor from one-third to one-twelfth what the American manufacturer pays his labor. The American valuation provision to the tariff bill, now pending, meets the situation precisely. It ignores the invoice value placed upon the foreigji made article and requires that each article brought to this country shall be valued and tariff exacted thereon in accordance with the cost of producing, the article in America by American workers receiving American sir r.dard of wages With a protective tariff and the American valuation provision in operation, American industry will fair-ly jump forward. Every mill and factory will be rushed with orders and the people of America will be spending their money for the purchase of goods made by American workers. Bayonne (N. J.) Review. The Movies OFFERINGS AT THE ROYAL "THE GREAT MOMENT" A story of romantic quality, with that continental flavor w-hich has been imparted to most of her stories by Mme. Elinor Glyn, is included in "The Great Moment," in which Gloria Swanson makes her debut as a Paramount star, and which will be shown at the Royal theatre next Wednesday and Thursday. Monte M. Katterjohn, working, side by side with the author, prepared the screen version of the story which opens at an orgy in St. Petersburg when a British aristocrat is captivated by and marries a woman from the plains of Tartary a Gypsy. The latter leaves his a daughter, Nadine, and in this role Miss Swanson has one of the greatest of her screen career. The tempestuous nature of her mother is transmitted to the child; the longing for the nomadic life is an inborn passion and she takes the Knight Bayard of history, "without fear and without reproach," as her idtal. A love story follows a vivid, colorful, perfervid domance, the story shifting across oceans and continents to America and the wilds of Nevada. Later the scene of the story is taken up in Washington and the strict official life of the capital. Finally, the lovers find happiness in the Nevada hills tasting of heaven and becoming) the equals of the gods. Apropos of the combined heat and crime wave in Paris, French psychologists are reviving the old theory that hig(h temperature and crime go hand in hand. They instance the violence and cruelty of the Spaniard, ignoring facts that do not fit their theory. Why rot look upon the tyrants and torturers of Siberia as natural products of the frigid air?

GENOA'S DICKERING WITH BOLSHEVISM MENACES EUROPE The fact is that the general economic situation in Europe is so discouraging and confused that the British and some other governments are willing to recognize the red usurpers in control of Rusia and bribe them to promise to be decent. Our own gov-ernment seems ot have foreseen this and wisely declined to be a party there to. Our aaministration knows that the red regv'me is rot Russian and that the Russian people are not reds. The Lenine gang is no more representative of Russia than an I. W. W. gang in temporary control at Washington would represent the masses of America. President Harding and his advisers, chief of whom upon this question is presumably Secretary Hughes, realize that the red regime in Russia, is too un-Russian. perfidious and detestable to have any dealings with; and as no national necessities compelled us to make terms with it, we remained away, which was the wisest thing we could have done. The Russian red dictators are not at Genoa to giive up anything or to make any promises they have the least idea of keeping. All they want is recognition by foreign nations which will buttress their tottering power. They must extend their communistic system to other peoples or go to the wall or rather be lined up against walls and be shot a fact which they realize more keenly than anyone else. Hence, it was only last month that Krassin, one of the Soviet delegates to Genoa, declared that communism was the pillar of their system to be defended with the last drop of their blood. He professed to see Europe going slowly but surely towards catastrophe and revolution." And in this the wish was father to the thought for a debacle like that can alne prolong their infamous lease of power Our government sees no hope for Russia until these miscreants have been deposed. Hence we would be no ' party to a dicker with them; nor will Europe gain anything by dickering ' with them. i TRADE AND TARIFF Although but two weeks old, the Genoa conference has already degenerated into a huge bargaining bee. Each and every representative is hagr gling and wrangling for all he can secure for his own country. None are thc-e for the general good of humanity, but for purely selfish motives not to straighten out the world's economic problems, but to get all that may be got. America's gold bagi with the string unloosed, is the only thing missing. Imagine American industry al the mercy of this crowd. England made very certain that the Key Industries act became a law. France has built up an embargo wall against cheap German goods. Chemical em-bargos are also in effect in Italy. The American tariff must stand, and stand high. If not American valuation, then higher specific rates are absolutely necessary. International theorizing may have its place, but not here and now. To those free-traders who throw their arms aloft in mock horror at the "terrible" rates which the Senate com- Ellis-Fowler PEAR BLIGHT vs. SPRAY INJURY A great deal has been written about lime sulphur spray injury to leaves and fruit in summer spraying. Nearly all this supposed spray injury can be accounted for in other ways. Pictures of apples showing corkey areas have been published in bulletins and fruit papers calling this spray injury by lime sulphur solution. I saw this on one ben Davis tree which I sprayed extra heavy. I went into other orchards which had never been sprayed and saw it just as bad. It was not spray injury, at all, but hard freezing occurring in April before the bl oom opened. The leaves also in 1917 and 1918 were burned after spraying. I tried to blame it on the spray material and every thing else ,1 could think of, but was finally forced to conclude it was the effect of the hard freezing, making them more susceptible. This year many are wondering why so many trees bloomed full, in such nice weather, with the bees working so hard, and did not have apples. I saw the leaves wilting after the bloom, before I sprayed. A few days after they were dead. But I did not spray them all at once. Those I had not sprayed were burned as bad as those I had sprayed. It was not spray injury, but was pear blight. The bees carried it from the pear orchards and the hot weather started the blig,ht to work at once. I estimate that more than half the apples were killed by blight coming from pear orchards, and I expect a bad year of blight if it is a hot season. The only remedy is to cut down the Kieffer orchards. EDWARD OVERMAN. New York has a man engaged in what he says is a gainful occupation, who apears in the city directory as a tatooer of dogs. Inquiry reveals the fact that many owners and fanciers pf dogs have their names tattooed on the dog's skin. Mrs. Joseph Felton has returned from a five weeks' visit with friends in Converse. J. H. Wilson and family are today moving into the Whitney property on South Main street. Rev. Oscar Lowry and Mrs. S.allie Edgerton, of this city held religious services at the county jail this forenoon. C. R. Small is giving attention to his insurance business, being special agent for the Provident Life and Trust Co. The Academy class of 1902 numbers thirty students. Commencement exercises will be held June 30. Prof. J. J. Mills, of Earlham College will preach the baccalaureate sermon at the Friends church June 15. Glenn Dean, who has been in Ala bama since January, has returned to this city. Decoration Day exercises were at tended with unusual interest. A large crowd gathered at the auditorium in the high school building. The Sum-mitville band and a choir furnished fine music. The services were opened with prayer by Rev. A. S. Wooten. The oration was delivered by Hon. C. C. Lyons, who spoke with great eloquence and force for over an hour. Benediction by Prof. J. F. Sigafoose. The line of march to the cemetery was then taken up, led by mounted veter- J mittee wishes to "saddle" on the American, people let it be said that the temporary elimination of the American valuation plan comes mighty close to making the whole chemical ad valorem schedule a huge joke. European valuation will very effectively reduce the protection originally intended by the House, while in addition the numerous rates which have been cut fully offset any advances by the Senate. Too well known is the connivance of European shippers in placing an artificially low value on goods sent to America. With foreign valuation, unless it be genuine valuation, which is well nigh impossible to obtain, ad valorem duties, no matter how- great, cannot be effective. Drug and Chemical Trade. GOMPERS CONDONES THUGGERY IN CHICAGO LABOR FIELD Mr. Gompers utterances in this city are violently one sided and show np consideration for the rights of the community or the responsibility of unionism for methods inflicting serious injury upon the public. He has evidently adopted the theory that the defense of the Landis award by a committee of citizens is not what it claims to be, but is a covert attempt to break unionism in Chicago. Wre do not deny that there may be men in the committee who would like to see Chicago what is called an "open shop town;"but so far as evidence is ob-tianable by us, the committee has supported loyally the unions which have kept their agreement to accept the results of the arbitration, and have oposed only those unions which have refused to do as they pledged themselves to do. Mr. Gompers, in short, throws his influence and pledges the suport of the American Federation of Labor to the perpetuation of a situation which no self-respecting community can afford to tolerate He has a proved a breach of faith. He has said nothing) to weaken the hold of the vicious forces which control in building trades unionism. On the contrary, he has strengthened them, and as the leading champion of conservative labor in the country he has put it in the position of condoning, if not approving, conditions and methods which discredit or j , I ! j j j , j j j . ! j ans of the Spanish-American war, followed by Odd Fellows, Red Men, Daughters of Pocahontas, school children, Beeson Post W.

Ihi situation in the building trades is a serious threat at the prosperity and progress of Chicago. It must be cleaned up. Every decent wagie earner, every inhabitant of the city, rich or poor, is vitaly interested in that. Lahpr is not the only factor, but it is one of them and Mr. Gompers would have been more its friend if he . had stood courageously for keeping faith and repudiating the rule of thuggery and graft, which afflicts unionism in this town. No consniracv to destroy lawful association among wage earners, law abiding unionism, could hope for the support of public opinion in Chicago, or in the end success unless it chose to identify itself j with lawr breaking, violence, and irre sponsibility. Mr. Gompers' evasion of the fundamental issues involved in the Landis award tends to that, and it is not a help to the cause of legitimate unionism. The city is trying to get rid of the extortionate material man, the crooked contractor, and the labor leader who holds his power by violence as the bolshevik. We think the city will succeed and that will be good for the wage earner and for legitimate unionism. But Mr. Gompers has put him- ! self on the wrong side of the battle. Chicago Tribune. I INDUSTRY NEEDS SPEEDY PRO j TECTIVE TARIFF LEGISLATION i Optimism over the business situa-! . tion is all right in its place, but the , tendency to rely upon the mere ex-i pectation that our country will e-cover its industrial poise with the passing of time, is a silly and absurd notion. The industrial situation in Aemeri-ca is not normal and it cannot be come normal until the proper steps ! are taken to make it normal. It is true that business conditions are much better today than they were six months ago, but such changes for the better as have been noted are of an illusionary character and have been bougiht about because of the underlying prosperity of the Ameri- can worker, who stored away his sur- j nutu VfagCia ncic 11111 UUIlUg the war.
