PICKARD THOMAS R. MARSHALL, for. I[ met vice president, has writ- ten to Edward W. Bok, donor of a $t00,000 prize for the best plan for avoiding wars, suggesting )eople who do the fight- ing and pay the bills be permit- tJd to decide whether or not a war shall be waged.

Europe is tlarmed by the threatened total col- ;lapse of Germany. The recovery of the wdrid Is in danger. Peace is at stake." .:hat, briefly summarized, is the teent made to the house of com- mons by Premier Baldwin and to the hose of lords by Marquis Curzon last hursday afternoon. It was made clear that cJreat Britain, while earnestly de- siring unified, action by the allies, tvould act alone if that extreme course were necessary. What the British pro- Qosats tn the contemplated note will be is not stated, Mr. Baldwin, while admitting that le German proposal set forth in the scent note e= un;tisfactory and In- ufftclent, decla ed ey should not be Ignored, but should be examined and explored, He was especially out. spoken concerning the Ruhr situation, asserting that indefinite occupation by oie country of the territory of another time of peve was a rare and regret- ble phenomenon, an honorable end for which should be found as speedily as possible. - Debate on the statement in the house commons, it ms decided by the arllamemtary leaders, should be post- poned wntil July 16 in order that the attRude of other countries toward the $)ronouncement might be learned. Dur- ing the discussion, it is expected, the pia of :an international commission of xerts to determine Germany's flnan- fll resources, as suggested by Secre- Hghes, will be brought from business and labor forced the Baldwin cabinet take the course announced.

Belgium is not in a position to break away from France, whatever may be her desires. ERMANY naturally sees in the British statement a way out of some of her troubles, but as yet those troubles are merely growing greater. Last week the entire nation was aroused by the boosting of the price of coal to about $5 a ton, the highest in Germany's history. The radicals yelled that Stinnes and Thyssen, the great coal barons, were again deriving huge profits from Germany's mlsery, ani] ttm industrialists said that dou- bling the coal price meant doubling the prices of all manufactured products and closing the works when the peo- ple were unable to buy. Doctor Stresemann, hitherto the closest friend of Stinnes, denounced the efforts of a few industrial magnates to get hold of all the country's resources and indus- tries and to profiteer while Germany went down to ruin. "We are dancing on a vohmno and we stand on the threshold of a new revolution if we do not settle the differences between the workingmen and Industrialists now," said Herr Stresemann. The Berlin government announced that the prices of bread would be quadrupled because of the further de- cline of the mark, whereupon a great throng of unemployed, mainly metal workers, marched to the open market in Potsdam and demanded that the dealers sell at cost. This being 1-e- fused, the mob wrecked the market. One grocer raised the American flag and declared his shop was American territory because he was selling canned goods from Chicago. T AST Wednesday, for the first tme since the beginning of t:h.e WOrld [ f war in 1914. 3uI " wlht sold on the Chicago hoard of trade for less than a dollar a bushel and, coincldentally, the Minneapolis millers reduced the price of flour to $6 a barrel, the lowest since 1915. According to the Chicago I brokers, the price depression, which has been steadily progressive of late, is due primarily to overproduction everywhere and to a general readjust- meat of grain values toward prewar t conditions. In addition, recent fears of heavy damage to wheat In the Northwest from black rust have been dissipated,- with corresponding effect on prices. Another cause for the slump given by the brokers is lack of speculation In the market, due ?o the Capper-Tlncher act, which requires a report of holdings to the government. Gilbert Dusler, market statistician for the American farm bureau, de- clared that If September and Decem- ber wheats go as low as 95 cents a bushel it will mean a loss of $80,00o,- 030 to {he American farmer. UR English cousins were consider- ably excited over the arrival at Southampton of the Leviathan on her first trip across since being rebuilt. They refuse to admit, in the face of facts, that she Is the queen of all liners, and they wereespecially sore because a good many members of her crew were believed to be deserters from British ships. he police searched the Leviathan for these culprits, but found ew. It Is probably true, how- ever, that more of them were among the vessel's sailors and "stewards, for they are paid 75 per cent higher wages than on English ships and say they receive much better treatment. Among the Levlathan's passengers was Albert D. Lasker, former chair- man of the shipping board, and in Lon- don he was one of the guests at a din- nor given by the Pilgrims. He ex- plained on that occasion that American ships do not serve liquor because President Harding thought It would be inconsistent for Aerica to be dry on land and wet at sea. He said no greater hurt could happen to the American merchant marine than to seek to force foreigners to be dry. ,'Somehow," he added, "foreign vessels will, and, as I believe, should learn to serve liquor outside the three-mile limit. What we wish td do with our ships is our busluess ; what you wish to do wit" your ships is your business, obody else's. We would be tbe gain- ors all around If the coming congress would find a means to expedite legis- lation to clear up the present muddle." Mr. Lasker's successor as head of the shipping board. Mr. Farley, has announced formally that all board yes- sels will continue to be dry, as no devi- ation from that policy Is contemplated ; but Informally It was gh'en out that passengers could carry their own U- quor aboard, for the board wlll not un- dertake to exercise police powers. LMOST Sthout opposition, the Washington naval limitation treaty and the four-l)wer Pacific treaty were ratified by the French sen- ate, after having been approved by the chamber of deputies. Senator Renald, in the debate, said the naval treaty would not be burdensome to France be- cause she was unable to afford more capital ships than the agreement al- lowed and the other classes of war craft were not affected. He said that at Washington proper account of France's geographical situation was not taken, but that "the commission on foreign affairs accepts the tonnage at- tributed to us because France wishes to devote her greatest efforts to the construction, not of an offensive high seas fleet, but of light units and sub- marines." France also proposes to have as great an alr-fighting force as any other nation, believing her greatest danger In.the future, from Germany, for instance, will tie in aerial attack. Great Britain, too, is planntngto build up an air force equal to any other, aml the government Informed the commons that, while it would be glad to partici- pate in a conference looking to limita- tion in that direction, there was no rospect of any such conference while the affairs of Europe remain so unset- tled. OVERNMENT supervision of the anthracite industry to a degree that will insure corporate "and individ- ual responsibility to the public is rec- ommended Ln a report of the federal coal commission. Government owner- ship of the mines is opposed, but the principle is enunciated that coal is as much  pu)ic nessSy as gas, street railway serwice or anytifing else that Ires been brought under public regafla- tlon. Complete Iubllclty as to mining costs, profits, salaries, wages and cor- porate relations is called for. The commission further recommends that, in the event of a suspension of mining operations, the President shall be authorized to take over the produc- tion of the mines and distribution of coal and to determine price, wages and compensation to land and mine own- ers. This aroused the Ire of Samuel Gom- pers, who often can see only one slde of such questions. He said: "The com- mission, by its recommendation, would invoke the penalty of compulsory la- bor Upon the miners. But for the monopolistic owners of the coal mines, the commission would provide a slap on the wrista severe dose of pub- licity. That would be only the ghost, the merest shadow, of a penalty." "Any outlaw the right to stop work as a means of improving the condition of the working people of the United States is doomed to fail. Such attempts have failed In the past and will be equally unsuccessful in the fu- ture. Labor will never give up the right to strike as a last resort in the fight against wrong and oppression." At the request of the coal commie. sion, the interstate commerce commis. slon has ordered an investigation of the reasonableness of anthracite freight rates.
