' And with whst motives have they wished to stop work? It was not to defend professional interests, but with a political elm. to obtain a very ill-d.'-flned reform against the wishes of the Government and of Parliament, in other words.

S60e,000,00e Equipment Keeded ha Tea " The roan not Intimately acquainted with railroad affairs finds It difficult to understand the magnitude and pressing character of the demands for addi tional capital expenditure. Addition' equipment alone calls for perhaps $600,-000,000 per year. In addition, the.- is on nearly ail railroads need for great enlargement of terminals, generally In costly localities, as well as for modernisation of shops and engine houses and construction of additional facilities. There are demands also for additional trackage, construction of heavier brldgea to admit of the use of heavier power, the reduction of grades and curves, and the Installation of safety devices and other remedial construction. . "No scheme of railroad management and reg-ulatlon can permanently succeed unless It If able to- draw from some source the capital neceaaary to make these expenditures." In discussing the new Transportation ?k Jlr- Uine?J expressed the opinion that there could not be "a successful permanent development of the theory of private management of the roads of this country without thoroughgoing and far-reaching- consolidation Into a few larae systems." The new law provides for voluntary consolldatlon but Mr. Hines argued that substantial resulta could not be complished in the absence of further legislative pro visions which either com- P.con.?f . tkn or offer inducements that will Insure voluntary unification. if we are to avoid Government ownership.

When President Wilson arrived In Europe It was believed he would set the world In order. That hope haa not been fulfilled. The President. It la believed, did his best to carry out his promises. " In England your unpopularity Is largely due to the Irish agitation In the United State, I know that that la being caused by a very email group of Americana. " Then you are beastly rich. I remarked an example of -that when a taxi-driver pulled up nit trousers and showed me his socks, saying : " Those socks cost me $3.23 a pair and they are not worth 11.50.' If a London taxi-driver said that he had paid 18 shllllnrs for hla sock, we would say that was p.-eposteroua." Mr. Casenave declared that Franc resented America's lack ot confidence In her, which, he -laid, was due largely to unjustified and inaccurate assertlona. " We intend to pay our debts," he cried. He defended France from charges that France had refused to Impose sufficient taxation upon herself that she had made no efforts to repair the disastrous effects of the war, and that she waa mlUtarlstic " France wants to be perfectly certain of her security and nothing more." he said. " Geographically she Is Germany's neighbor. Historically she has suffered repeated Invasion by Germany. France now desires to change this state of affairs. She wishes to be safeguarded afralnst Invasion." Dr. lyenaga referred to the laws discriminating against Japanese subjects and the Siberian problem. He asserted that most of the attacks against Japan were made for political reasons, but that, unfortunately, the Japanese people were not versed in American party manoeuvres and misunderstood America's attitude. Mr. Noel declared that moat of the criticism directed against the United States was due to our provincialism and lack of International contact. He asserted that we were lamentably Ignorant of tha history, .tradltlona and problems of the Latin-American countrlea. " To the uninformed only la the United States merely a land of dollar chasers." he declared. Several of the other speakers said that one reason for America's unpopularity abroad was the tendency toward a misunderstanding of the newspaper reports which were cabled back and forth. I. eonce Levy of the Paris Matin suggested an exchange of editors, political writers and Industrial writers between France- and America.
