' _Whin this action ii.s taken Japart doubtje-ss will wlthdiraw from the .League and announce her intention to go her own way in her own way. I What; this means is that she proposes to cxtrt whatever force may be nec- eksary to add the Chinese province of Jeholto the provinces of Manchuria whicli she has already annexed] . That such is her intention Is made clear by the announcement that 5he proposes very .soon to serve -an ulUmatum on China demanding that i^e withdraw all Cliinese troops from ifehol province. " Thai the attitude of Japan most certaijily will lead to war is obyioUs. Japari- herself evidently expects it for tlie Japanese Diet has approvpd the biggest budget in the history of the 'Empire, swollen by army aiid navy appropriations. • ' • What fools these mortals ber Hert is Japari, spending money and filling men to acquire territory to which she has no right and which her Rpople will not occupy even if Japaij' owns ft except as they may be ordered there. Here is Japan affronting the moral sense of the worldf violating treaty obligations, f loutilig the League | of Nations of which' she is a charter m-jmber, endangering her financial stability. An^ all for what? FoK; nothing but the gratification of shier national vanity and pride. Makitig herself fa Pariah among the natiofis. Sowing her dead and Chinese ^dead thick over the desolate plairiij of Manchuria and Jehol. Piling ufwn the backs of her people an Intolcirable burden of debt. PocJs! FooLs and blindh ^ ANOTHEIlj WET MIX-UP. Both National conventions Wrote . Into their platform.^ a provision that in nam an ameiidmeliit to i-epeal the j 18|h amendment wejre submitted to the pfiqple of tile various states it ' should be brought before state con- ventitms for ratification or rejection. • The amendmet\t which now has be(>.n_idopted by the Senate and ^whichT prboably \ will be carried in • the Hpuse, therefore carries a pl:o- yisioh' that it shall be submitted to state"t:pnventions and , riot to the' legislBf^ures of ,the various states. _ That ;ls in violation of all precedents, jjp to this time every amendment proposed to the Federal con- stitution has been submitted to the legislatures of the various states. But the wets insisted that in thi& case the new amendmerit should go before-'state conventions. Apparently they thought; they would have a -better"*chance to control these con- -yentiojis than they would to control iegislalures. i • But,;alrieady trouble has started. ^^ The JS'ets do not seem to agree : amon^; theriiselves whether . these •• conveiitions are to, be exclusively stat€ •jaffau's, called by the legislatures land paid for out of the sta't% , treasi^ies, or whether they are to , be f^eral functions, called, bgu- V, latedjindpaid for by the federal govenunent. All ^ which trouble might have l,"7T)een ^voided if the wets had been content to lolWw precedent arid ai low the legifelatures to pass upon the. matter. A COMPBEHENSIVE BOX. One of the major measures sponsored by the administration Is reported in a f a"Jr way, toTewHtre legislative approval, ft is called the consolidaUbn bill. It provlttes for a director 0 /1 publle safety, a new dfflee, but it cbmbhies s6 many other offices that Its passage will be the pa.ssage of an economy measure, It wipes out nine "existing departments and trirxis their duties over to the director laf public safety. It gives the state a uniformed highway patrol of 48 mrin. All In all It eliminates about 150 employees and creates positions for atiput 70. Departments , that would cease functioning June 130 this year would be the hotel commission, the fire marshal, the oil inspector, the vehicle commissioner, the motor carrier Inspector, inspectofs operating under the state treasin-er, the board of review and the cigarette lrtspectO|'. All the work done by those boards and commissions and their Inspectors would be done by the 4iB uniformed men working under the director of safety. Who also would enforce the law along the state: highways. The bill would create one director at $3,600 a .year, an assistant at $3,000 a yearjslx superintendaifs— one for each' highway dlstrJct— a' $2,000 a year each, 48 patrolmen at $1,708 a year, five technicians and investigators for the bureau of identification, and criminal investigation, and sOch clerical help as the governor would authorize. The director, assfetdnt and snper- intendents wotrid be under bonds of $5,000, $4,000 and $3,000 respectively. "The patrolmen would safeguard the; highways, enforce the payment of fees and licenses and gas tax, detect criminals and maintain la# and order. ' They would aid local official.? in enforcement of la^ ijnd Would be authorized to call (on "local officers for aid when it wa* needed. The bill would provide for an appropriation! of $50,000 with which to start July 1, but after that would be expected to be maintained from the fees collected. * * 4 «^ * * <• «• * • • 25YEABSAG0 >eliniary M, 1908. • • « Thieve! recently entered the laboratory )f the laimm 2mc com- paay hwth'of towti and stole three pU» inuin cujis wliich 4re valued at eve* $101.

The big boys make mistakes the same as the little ones. Charles O. Dawes admitted before a. Senate committee (hat hii; Chicago barik lent the Insull outfit $11,000,000, which was half Its capital and surplus. Owen D. Young, on the same day, testified that his General Electric company lent the Insull companies $2,060,000 .shortly before they crashed. Of criurst both the Dawes bank and the General Electric believed the loans were well secured when they made them; but the chances are they didn't make as careful inqniiy into the value of these securities as they would have made if some merchant had be^n asking for a loan of $1,000 dollars. Men who get accustomed to dealing in millions seem somehow to get hypnotized;by them. Since Kansas began building roads in real earnest, she. has spent more than $100,000,000 in the work. This huge sum has been spent absolutely at the discretion of a group of seven men, the State Highway Commission. They have had to give an ac- cotmting to nobody. ,With the bdst intentions in the world and with every punwse to spend the money honestly these men could yet have made mistakes. An Investigation would expose these mistakes and might easily result in corrections that would be worth millions to the state in carrying on future road operations. The Investigation ought to be made. It ought to go back to the beginning and it ought to come down to date. j From Other Papery t WHAT HAPPENED AT LYONS. Lyons Ne*s: About eight years ago the Buick atttomoblle company carried a consistent advertising cariipalgn in the Lyons Daily News. As a; result the Lyons territory became a Buick stron^old. About every other car on the streets | and country roads adjacent to the dty was a Bufck. Tlien the! Buidt company decided thafl it could eliminate the Lyons Dally News and iover this territory with the Htitehihson papers. From that day Buick sales in,Lyons were doomed and now the car is reinvented by only a half dozen or so faithful Boick adherents. About the time Buick quit. Hay MlUard started a new auto agency and his company put on a strong campaign in the Lyons News;. Mr. MlUard sold iorty cars that fall, half of them to fonner Buick owners, and only two new Buick ca*s were sold in Lyons that season; Only one automobile company is consistently adverti^ng In the News at present and that company is Eell-" ing four of its cars in this territory to every sale of all the other, companies combined.
