Mediation Instead of Battle Fronts The Dominicair Republic has agrewl to pay its neighboring country of Ilniti $750,000 indemnification for Llic wholesale massacre of Haitians' so v em 1 monUis ago, and eivitalion indies forward another notch. It is not particularly important that actual money is paid to llaili. Presumably $750,000 wouldn't jjo very far' even if it could be accurately distril)- uled among the survivors of Hie wholesale machete killings in which from three to ten thousand Haitians were* reported to have {lied. But the fact that Santo Domingo, with its comparatively superior mili- Ury strength, js paying vastly weaker Haiti the money, thereby confessing and agreeing to amends, is most important. Dark, wood-fringed Massacre river separates the two republics on the island of HiBpaniola. Santo •Domingo has long raised sugar for an American market, thriving with the high prices. Haiti had no such industry, hut Haitians were willing to cross Massacre river iitul chop sugar cane for wcalth- ,ier Santo Domingo planters for 20 cents a_ day — and Santo Doming;) planters were eager to have them. Then the price of sugar dropped and production full off. But already thousands of Haitians were in Santo Domingo, married, rearing families, residents of as long as 20 years. That, was the seat of the trouble- that and the blending of French!, and Negro blood— and whun^iard times struck the island, Santo Domingo grumbled about the Haitians on the wrong side of Massacre river and what to do with them. Apparently the solution was found, if peculiarly, for by night, according to survivors, Uie Haitians were hauled from their tiny homes and butchered with machetes, butchered by the .hundreds, and the bodies left along the banks of'Massa- ! ere river. When these facts, came out of the interior and reached the seaport, foreigners looked at Haiti's president Ste- iiio Vincent for warring retaliation. But instead lie placed the matter bc-^ fore the Permanent Committee of Inter-American Conciliation, under the Gondra Treaty O f 1923, which guaranteed amiability between Ihe two nations.' The committee investigated mid fixed. the blame. An accord was reached and laid before the Congresses of both nations. Both agreed to the proposal that Santo Domingo pay the $750,000 indemnification. The Dominican government agreed to continue investigations and give the affair full publicity. ISoth governments agreed to prevent future like occurrence!;. It was as simple a,s thai. Hven with a tongue-in-cheek view of the Dominican investigations and further action against its people, the result thus far so justifies the mediation method that it seems almost a miraculous happening. Especially in this day, when no aggressor ever seems actually to blame for aggression. Double Mileage Congressional .secretaries are making a strenuous effort to get a 10-c«nt mileage rale for traveling between their homes and Washington between sessions and no doubt they feel justilied. Their bosses get 20 cents a mile, and often never leave Washington from cue adjournment to the next. Hut there is one clause a lot of people would like lo see in that measure, if it ixisses. When tlie congressman's secretary is his wife or his sister, his cousin or his aunt—who normally splits his 20- cent allowance anyway, why not excuse her from the gratuity? That might even cut down a little on the nation's official nepotism.

There arc live such bjections: Rrst. pasteurization alh-i-i:, llir trice of milk, since It involn-s an vldcd c\i>cnse. The (ibjrci.i,m lt> rasteurization comes mosiiy from mall farmers who do nol care lo ell their milk lo the large- clixirib- itors but who prefer lo :-rll it hemscivcs. However, it is p-nuted mt that In most coumvie\ pro- rlucer-rctailers contribute only a nialUamount of the milt sold lor iqiiid consumption.

H has also been argued Unit compulsory pasteurization might cause lhc pmliicors to believe it unnecessary (o remove diseased animals from their milking herds. This ar- iumu-nt. of course, is not a valid one because (he removal of disease:! animals from the herd Is necessary for tbr> herd's sulely more than lor the production of safe milk. Animals tree from disease are lieallliicr. produce more milk', are more likely lo be fcrlilc. and can be sold lor a higher price than disea.scd cows. It is ridiculous la believe that any intelligcht.

Do I look like a man that's joking? j figure liierc are troubles ahead ol us. Dangers, even. We can face them better as man and wife." Tlie giil looked up at the bronzed young seaman and answered lioncsl]y,-"My heart's going like a loud ticking clock, Jerry."

There must l:c n publishing of lhc .banns in ;i church for three Sundays before Ihe wedding day. Then, if any .sou! objects, (he marriage can he stopped. My mother was Mary Dai-l, a London girl.

But there's my mother's miniature and my money." * e * JT was 10 o'clock wlicn Jerry got out of the gig before Oliver Dart's house and knocked on the oaken door. Mrs. Broggs admitted him. When he said, "I've come to get Miss Pol|y Chelsey's things," she gave an exclamation of concern.' 'Lud. sir! Do you know where she is?", ' ' | 'Yes, I do. She's safe with me at a tavern. I'm a cousin of her father's, from America,- and I mean to look after her. I've got a gig waiting outside. Tell" me where her trunk is, and I'll fetch it down to the street." "Lud!" exclaimed Mrs. Broggs again. "Master's got it! He found out tonight that she'd run off, so he had it carried down to his study, to go through." "Where is his study?" asked Jerry, visibly angry. - "At the head of the stairs on the floor above, sir. But wait! I can see you're hol-lempered. You'll j throw Mr. Dart into a rage, likely." "Well, he's already thrown me into one. What's he searching Miss ccpted him, but lhc Darts were wild. My father's sister, my'Aunt Kate Chelsey, had come over with him to sec tendon..
