JVvTUSSOLUNI puts method in his madnessl He withdraws his mreat, hut conceals that retreat From all but the astute bv ! puiiiug u m truculent language. In his reply to Stresemann, Mussolini pretended to reiterate his former language about carrying me Italian tlag beyond the Brenner, but said it was an allusion "which Stresemann can interpret as he will, but which Italians interpret in the sense that Italy will never submit to the violation of treaties of peace which guarantee their frontiers." In other words,, a declaration whose only honest interpretation was a threat to violate the frontier now becomes .an an nouncement of determination to defend it. Which, considering that no one is menacing it, is nonsense. , The threat itself was one which the new Europe can not tolerate. Even in a just cause, for the redress of a real grievance, no European country can now be suffered to invade with arms the territory of another. Other means of adjustingfgi'iev-ances are now provided, and whoever will not use them, but resorts. Instead, to the old remedy of arms, becomes thereby the enemy, not merely of the Invaded state, but of Europe. 'TPHlS truculent nationalism, of which Mussolini Is the moHt extreme example, is the most dangerous feature of the post-war reaction all over the world And its most dangerous feature is that it masquerades in the name of patriotism, and thereby deceives good but middled men into thinking it , a virtue. The German Nationalists who. With the Communists, are the only obstacle to German co-operation In the progress of Europe, imagine themselves the only patriots in Germany. French Nationalism, under Poincaire, nearly wrecked Europe and did bankrupt France. The Greek Nationalists lost all the gain that Europe had "made over Turkey and finally had to be apanked into shame after their Invasion of Bulgaria. The Bolshevists scout the theory of nationalism, but their arrogant nationalism in practice Is the only barrier to the re- Union of Russia with Europe Italian Nationalism, temporarily a benefit In restoring stability with in Italy, now becomes a public nuisance 1 its foreign relations. Mexican Nationalism is the only thing that deprives Mexico of the Inflow of foreign capital, which is Its most acute present need. And American Nationalism, represented by the Irreconcilables, has disrupted both parties in Washington and has become a sheer obstinate, obstructive reaction against American progress. Yet all the nationalisms miscall themselves patriotism!" INTERNALIST, the most oppressive feature of the hew nationalism Is its tyranny over minorities Nationalism in Greece and Turkey is deporting whole populations, at the cost of starvation, and In Armenia seeks to exterminate those whom it can not deport. In the Balkans, rjirl'ul, cultural and linguistic minorities are, by the Treaty of Versailles, under the express protection of the League of Nations, but this hns not prevented much injustice to them. In Upper and Lower Silesia, it is the whole trouble. It was the worst of the oppressions of old Russia, In the non-Russian border states. In America, It is usually nothing worse than ignorant and futile, in the more stupid of our Newark C. of C.

In Italy It is the crui of the whole present situation. r I MB Jtouth Tyroltse are Ger I manic In blond and German In language. With North Tyrol, they have always been a single provlnoe, attached during most of their history to Acstrla. They are no part of Italia Irrldenta, the Lost Provinces, which were restored to Italy by tha war, but were added to ttaly for purely military reaaona, because the Brenner pass, between them and North Tyrol, 1 more ' easily defensible than the southern frontier which divides them from historic and ethnic Italy. If Europe was to remsfn a col leotlon of armed camps, there was a certain justification for this ar rangement, and so long as It was recognised as such, with due regard to the rights of the Inhabitants as Tyrolese placed for military reasons only within ths Italian lines. It was, though an evil and an Injustice, perhaps an en-, durable on. A still better solution might have been to nni all the Tyrolese as a canton of Switzerland, sshose people they much resemble. ' .

' The bandits walked into the AI- nine hotel at 1:20 o'clock yester day morning, lined up one of the pro prietors., the night' clerk and five guests against 4he ' - wall, robbed them of their valuables and looted the cash register, securing a total of approximately $400.- An attempt to open the' office safe was unsuccessful. . . ' Patrolman James McCarthy, who entered the hotel, was lined up with the, other victims against the wall after being relieved of his pistol, night stick and handcuffs. - The other victims were Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Hendrlckson,' Mr. and Mrs. Carl Asher and Gus Berness, guests; Carl Bauhofer, one of the proprietors, and H.' W. Stamer. night clerk. .-.; After rifling the pockets of the guests and the cash register of cash and jewelry, the robbers ordered the victims into a room" In the rear-of the hotel and locked them in. Patrolman McCarthy and Bauhofer Immediately jumped out of a window and McCarthy Sum moned aid with his whistle. A posse organized at the Eastern police Station ' made a thorough search of (he neighborhood but no race or tne Danans was rouna. While Stamer. the night clerk was protesting to one of the ban dits that he did not knew how to open the safe and the robber was threatening to blow his brains out, two men entered seeking lodgings for the night. Stamer stood by the safe near the registration desk and the rob ber, covering him with a revolver, stood out of sight behind a door. In an adjoining room ths guests stood with their, hands above thelr neaas against tne wan. What's the chance to get room for the night?" inquired the two men seeking lodgings. "Nothing doing," replied the frightened clerk, "we're all filled up for the night. The two visitors departed, never knowing they'had walked into and out of a hold-up.' Patrolman . McCarthy entered the hotel a few minutes later. He was met by one of the robbers, who advanced with his revolver behind his back. "Corns back here a minute. you're just the fellow we're look ing for," said the bandit politely. The policeman, off his guard, found himself suddenly covered with a revolver and hs was forced to take his place with the other victims against the walL Ths robbers enfered the hotel about 1:20 o'clock Sunday morning and asked Bauhofer for accommodations.

East Oakland became the Integral part of a metropolis. . Pavements, street cars! gasoline, all sounded a slow knell for the blacksmiths. Many of these craftsmen applied their skill as metal workers and wheelwrights to repairing aulo-mobiles. and capltaliz d tha progress of industry.

Estimates by George Posey, county engineer, pla ced the cpst of removing the wrecked span at $10,000, and removal of the pier at $15,000. The estimated cost of re moving the approaches Is $15,000 to $25,000. The coat of construct ing slips for the proposed ferry is estimated at $25,000. Taking these figures, the delegation from Ala meda pointed out that It would cost at least $50,000 to Install ferry system and advocated th greater exuenditure for reconstruc tlon of the bridge. The board, on motion of Super visor w. j. Hamilton, passed resolution by which the United States war department will be asked to permit the Installation of slips for the ferry.

The subject of his address was "Is the United States the Greatest Breeders of Crime Among tha Nations?" , , Organization of crime rings, automobiles, insufficient police fore , lack of a J.atinal crime bureau, obsolete and impossible laws and criminal aliens were given by Bishop Moreland as contributing causes, but hea declared the chief causes of crime are courts tied up by technicalities, lack of religion in the home and the indifference of citizens. "Crime can be prevented, like fire or disease," ishop Moreland said, "and one of the remedies is religion, which cleanses the heart, There are 1,000,000 criminals in. the United States, of whom 80 percent are boys and girls.
