(-NE cannot help thinking that at xJ Lausmme also justice is not be- ing done o the French financially. The BritLh and Greeks there are turn- ing against the French demand that the Turks pay their bonds on a gold franc basis, which is three times more valuable than the paper frmc. TI English call this, "unreasonable." but the French reply that the pound ster- ling is hearly normal, so the English bondholders will be paid almost on a gold basis. France is now willing to leave this matter out of the peace treaty with Turkey and to settle it later by negotiations. The Turks are insistent that the bonds be paid at the present rares of exchange and their delegates at Lausanne have been In- structed to quit tile conference If the allies do not yield. In order to test Russia's wlllingne to "come back into Europe." the alliem decided to invite the soviet govern. ment to sign the Turkish straits con- vention when the treaty is completed. The representati'es of England and Turkey settled the controversy over the Mosul region by accepting the boundaries of British influence In Mesopotamia as agreed upon by Lord Curzon and Ismet Pasha. Any further "disputes concerning Mosul which may remain unsettled nine months after l the signing of the treaty will be re- ferred to th,: council of the League of Nations, though the Turks preferred "that they should be submitted to the Hague tribunal. RESIDENT HARDING has repeat- edly disclaimed that his speeches on his trip through the West and to Alaska are designed as campaign mate- rial, but it is probable that the gist of most of them will be found In the next Republican national platform. After his address on American membership in the world court, in which he sug- gested divorcing the court frmu the League of Nations by making it prac- tically self-perpetuating, he told the farme of Kansas what the national government has done tC rescue Amer- Ican agriculture from the depression that came with deflation in 1920. Inci- dentally he shocked some wheat and operated a binder. In Kansas City he insisted on compulsory conselldation of the railway systems as a solution of transportation problems. Sunday's address at Oolorado Springs was in the nature of a sermon, urging the Golden Rule as a panacea for the ills of the world. In Denver and Wyoming the President made two most Important pronouncements. First he declared ab- solutely for enforcement of the Vol- stead act, by each and every state as well as by the federal government. He denounced the action of the "new nul- !tflcatioIsts'" who have repealed or tried to repeal the prohibition enforce- ment acts 'Jr various states, referring especially to New York and Governor Smith. Of this he said: "Instead of being an assertion of state rights, it is an abandonment of them; it Is an abdication; It amounts to a confessio by the state that It doesn't choose to govern itself, but prefers to turn he task, or a consider- able part of it, over to the federal authority. There could be nQ more complete negaon of state rights." And this was his .arnin k to the "nulliflcatloni" : "If the burden of enforcement shah contlnueto be In- creasingly thrown upon the federal government. It will be necessary, at large expense, to create a federal ! m. lice authority which in time will in- evitably come to be regarded as an intrusion upon and interference with the right of local authority to manage local concerns. The possibilities of disaster In such a situation hardly need to be suggested." He said fqir. ther that they "will discover that they have perpetrated what is likely ta prove one of:.the historic blunders In political manltgement." From the car platform at Cheyenne the President declared himself opposed. to "nationalization" of the coal min- ing industry: stated that certain mine owners were as responsible for par- alyzing the Industry last years were the men who went on strike, said that the operatoi-s had been unable to pro* duce fuel even when furnished potec- tio!, and announced that there "would never be any coal  mined in free Amer- ica under force af arms." He alluded to the already existing anxiety con- cernlng next winter' supply of goal and said that while the government wouhl do all it could, the public must help as best it can. In Utah Mr. Harding talked of the economies in government operation tl-ing his administration, and prom- $ed still further reductions. He called attention to the fact that at the same ime the cost of stare and local gov- ernments is steadily increasing. In 1922 the state and local taxes were 60 per cent of all taxes paid. } i LTHOUGH government agents are I seizing the sealed liquor stores on foreign vessels ahuost as fast as they come to American ports, the high officials In Washington have not, at this writing, nmde up their minds to take possession of the ships them- 'selves and, after violation of the taw is proved, sell them at auction and urn the proceeds into the treasury. Such a course was considered in a series of conferences, however, and if It is not adopted It will be because of reluctance to bring on serious inter- national disputes and to gdve the ship- -plug lines a cimnce to determlne in the courts whether they have the right to bring into American waters beverage liquors under seals of their government. If th9 goyermnent does decicle to enforce the ship-seizure provision of the law, ample notice wilt be given. Speaking at te graluatlon exer- cises of the army:war college, Secre- tary of War Weeks announced hls flat opposition to any plan for using the army for prohlbitlon work. James Cousens, the new senator from Michigan, returning from a tour of Canada, prophesied that congress in its next session will amend the Volstead act to permit the sale of beer containing not more than 5 per cent alcohol. He was quoted as saying 5 per cent beer was not in- toxicating and no sane person would maintain It was ; and he characterized the prohibition law. "as federal au- thorities are now attemptlug to en- force it," as "ridiculous and impossi- ble of enforcement." FFICACY of the insulin treatment for diabetes, discovered by Dr. F, G. Bantling of the University of To- ronto, is further proved by the an- nouneement that it has been used with great success on Robert Lansing, former secretary of state, and Miss Elizabeth Hughes, daughter of Secre- tary of State Hughes. The United States public health service has care- fully investigated the treatment and now declares that Insulin is to be re- garded as one of the greatest discov- eries of recent years. Doctor Bantling is to be granted an annuity of $7,500 by the Canadian government. HE labor party of Great Britain, which many believe will be in con- trol of the government before very long, not only has refused $o have any connection with the Russian bolshev- ists, but last week, at its annual con- ference, rejected the application of the communist party for aiitllation by a vote of 2,880,000 to 366,000, Frank Hedges declareddt would be madness for those who believed in political democracy to allow an affiliation with those who declare political democracy is of no avail. OVERNOR WALTON, the rather obstreperous executive of Okla. homa, angered by the arrest on charges of drunkennes of two men carrying commissions as s.tate officers, declared the rule of the sheriff of Okmulgee county to be "lawless," pro- claimed martial law and sent six units of the National Guard to take charge of law enforcement there. -In four other countles there have been whip* pings and assaults, attributed to the Ku Klux Klan, and the governor threatens martial law In those regions unless- thee offenses cease. Walton says he Is determined to suppress mob violence in Oklahoma. ORE regular employment in coal- mining regions  and the stabiliz- ing of production are expected to re- sult from an order of the Interstate commerce cammission abolishing the "assigned car" rule under which the railroads have insured a supply of coal for their own use during fuel sup- ply stringencies and other periods of emergency.

P XTERMINATOR vs. Man o' War l The year 1923 is a banner year on the American turf, with good horses, big purses, great Crowds and much enthusiasm. There is one particular race, how- ever, unfinished at this writing, in which the American racing public is seemingly interested beyond all others--the race of Exterminator against the record of Man o' War as the champion money-winner of American turf klstory. Mao' War is believed by many to be the best horse of American history, Certain it is that he retired to the stud at the close of his second year on the turf (1920), with but one defeat against him, the holder of several speed records and the winner of $249,465. He now holds court at Far- away farm in Kentucky. This is Exterminator's seventh season on the turf. When the year began he was only a fex thousand behind Man o' War. In his first three starts this year he finished third in the Hartford handicap; first in the Philadelphia handicap; and second In the Old Dominion handicap. That put him but $1.409 behind Man o' War. So, as early as May the struggle for money honors between "Red"Man o" War's stable name --and "Old Bones," as Exterminator's attendants and many racing devotees call him. The public figured It out that "Old Bones" was sure to win --if he stayed sound. It refused to believe that the handicapper could put weight enough on the veteran campaigner to keep him from victory sooner or later. After the Old Dominion handicap "Old Bones'* was reported to have "gone amiss." Word now comes from Tidewater, Virginia, that he is enjoy- ing a summer's rest firere ad will come back to the races In the fall in fine fettle. "When "Old Bones" becomes American cham- pion-if he doesthen he'll go out after the rec- ord of Isinglass, world champion, winner of $291,- 275 on the English turf. Isinglass piled up his large total, which has stood as the world's record since 1894, by running vnly 12 races. Eleven of these ie won. In the other he was second. The Two Thousand Guineas" the Derby, St. Lager, Eclipse and Jockey club stakes accounted for $178,- 2(]0 of his total earnings. Ravensbury was the best horse he had t,) beat in any of the classic races, in all of which that horse ran second. In the Eclipse stakes ($46,425) Isinglass carried 142 pounds and defeated Ladas (130), the Derby win- ner of that year, at one mile and a quarter. "Come on, you Exterminator !" "Come on. 'Old Bones' ,"' These cries have been shouted by thou- sands every time the popular old gelding has run this year. Unmistakably the racing publtc is root- ing for "Old Bones" to beat "Red." Seldom has the American turf seen scenes of greater enthusi- asm than when he has appeared this year. Why should the public be so se on Exterminat- or's success In passing Man o' War's record.* The answer probably is seen in a comparison of the records of the two horses. Man o' War is by Fair PlayMahuba, by Rock Sand. He was bred by Ms.|. August Belmont. He Is owned by Samuel D. Riddle of PhlladelIflfia. who races in the name of Glen Riddle Farm. He started in 21 races In his two years on the turf and as beaten only once. His one defeat was in the Sanford Memorial of 1919 at Saratoga, in which he was beaten a neck by Upset in 1:11 1-5. His J('key, J. Loftus" got him practically left at the post. At their next meeting he beat Upset llke breaking sticks. Incidentally J. Loftus could get no license to ride last year or this. "Red" holds several speed records, including these : With- ers, 1 mile, 118 pounds, 1:35 4-5, the fastest Amer- ican mile in actual racing; Belmont. 1 3-8 miles. 126 pounds, 2:14 1-5, a world record ; Dwyer, 1 1-8 miles. 126 pounds. 1:491, a world record. Man o' War won his $249,465 in to seasons. As :! two-year-old he wou $83.325. The Futurity alone brought him $,.26,650. The Preakness. With- ers, Belmont and the Dw,er made his three-year- *T--- _..L old earnings enormous. And then came the "match race" between Man o' War and Sir Barton in Can- ada for a purse of $50.000--a purely commercial proposition and a foregone conclusion. So Man o' War, a turf aristocrat, had easy t)lckiogs against horses of his own age. Exterminator. by McGee---Fair Empress, by Jim Gore. is now eight years old. He was bred by Frederick D. Knight and is of'ned by Willis Sharpe Kilmer of Binghamton, N. Y. He has started 92 times, finishing first 47 times, second 17 times, third 15 times and unplaced 13 times. He bohts one-speed record: 2 miles, 128 pounds, 2:31 4-5, Belmont Park, 192D. His winnings have been hard-earned. His Kentucky Derby of 1918 brought him only $14,700. His four successive vic- tories in the Saratoga Cup at 16 miles, 1919-22, brougit him only about $20,000. Moreover, "Old Bones" has won his quarter of a million largely In races open to the world. He has won at all distances and against horses of all ages, Most of his losing races were in handicaps where he was asked to concede lumps of weight to the winners. In these races he was often the best horse, but could not overcome th handicap. Mighty few horses have ever beaten hlm at weight for age or at even weight. For instance, when the three-year-Old Chick-vale beat him by a nose this year in the Gld Dominion handicap at a mile and 70 yards at Havre de Grace, the winner carried 101 pounds and the.Joser 132 pounds. Externflnator came from behind mad would have won in another stride. In the Phlladelphla'handicap at Havre de Grace Exterminator carried 1_'29 pounds and won at 1 1-16 miles from Paul Jones (6). 109; Fair Phantom (4), 107 ; Irish Kiss (8), 108 ; Comic Song (4). 106, and Rouleau (6), 107. Exterminator got off well. and then was placed by McAtee behind the leaders. Comic Song led to the stretch, with Fair Phantom forcing the pace and looking all over the winner. Paul Jones made his move In the stretch and then came along "Old Bones" from fourth place. He and Paul Jones had it ding-dong down the stretch on even terms, Then Paul Jones weakened a trifle and "Old Bones" kept right on to win by a neck. Exterminator was a top-heavy favorite over the field at 4-5. So Exterminator, not tm much of a turf aristo- crat as Man o' War, has worked hard for his win* nings during seven strenuous years of campaign- ing, during which he has dodged no man's horse and has run at all distances and under all condl- tlons. And in thi% probably lies the reason why the rac- ing public Is rooting for "Old Bones" to pass "Red's" record. A great horse is as hard to define with exactness as a gentleman. But he must have speed, and he must have courage. He must be able to carry right and to go a distance. He must have Intelligence. He must be consistent in performance. He must be willing to do his best always He should have a good disposition, an equable temperament, a sound body and a rugged constitution. And. above all. he mst have that indefinable something called class--the quality which enables the stake horse to look the plater in the eye and go on to win. Exteruflnator has these qualities--and every one of them. "To ay that the defeat of Exterminator in the Old Dominion was a bitter disappointment to the crowd that cheered Idm for his heroic failure. Is putting it miklly." ays an account of the race. "Cheer after cheer rent the air as he paraded to the post. Encouragement reared of those that had pinned their those that had wagered against valiantly through the last eighth to get up." "While the stands Exterminator came back de Grace today in the the official report. -Winners Joined In the riotous applause for one of the most popular idols of the Beginning his seventh year of this marvelous old son of McGee is now on his way to be nlng thoroughbred of American Though Exterminator seems distinction of having won more other horse in turf history, he way from being the largest hard-earned distinction American horse Kingston.
