NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENT EVENTS Germany Having a Hard Time With Monarchists, Reds and Industrial Barons. POINOARE REBUFFS BERLIN Conducts Direct Negotiations in the Ruhr--lmportant Plans Discussed by British Imperial Confer- ence--Doings of the Amer ican Federation of Labor. By EDWARD W, PICKARD II ft NY man who wouhl make pre- % dictions for Germany beymd tomorrow is mad'" cables a Berlin cor- respondent. Events in that distracted country have been moving rapidly to ward a climax which Chancellor Strese- mann fears and frankly says may be a catastrophe unless ImmOlate measures are taken and they prove successful. Even before this reaches the reader the situation may me entirely changed, for the better or, If possii)le, for the worse. Only the happenings of last week can be rec,wded. The Socialists yielded to Stress- mann's Insistence on the "authorization law" which will permit legislation hy the cabinet without reference to parlia- ment. and the chancellor thereupon forn}ed h new cabinet to operate as a directorate, in which are represented the Socialist, Democratic, Center and People's parties. The monarchists "lind Communists are excluded. On Tuesday he submitted the new govenv meat's policies to the reichstag and was given an overwhelming vote of confidence, only the Natbmalists. Com- munists and Bavarian Voik.%'mrtel op- posing. The chancellor declared he was not seeking negotiations with France alone but only with all the al- lies: that he had no intention of abol- ishing private property but intended that the great properties should take their share of the financial burdens of the state ; and that Germany fitood back of her signature on the Versailles treaty. Stresemann severely criticized the Cane government's refusal to aban- don the passive resistance on the ad- vice of England three months ago when it still was possible to obtain conces- sions from France. He declared hard words an0 threats in protest against France's action in the Ruhr were use- less. Then came forward Stin'nes, the Krnpps, Thyssen and the other indus- trial magnates with an attack on the cabinet" and a list of demands on 8tresemann whicl included an eight and one-half hour day in the coal mines, ten hours in the mills and the abandonment of the coal tax. Until these measures are granted, they said, they could not bring the cost of coal down to the world market price at the pithead. Their other demands amount- ed to the revocation of all privileges won by labor during the last twenty years.+ In reply the chancellor sent Minister of the Interior Solmann into the reichstag to announce that these demands of the coal and steel mag- nates for measures to fill their pock- ets would not be considered by the government. Le country was en- raged by the + stand of the industrial barons. The pres branded them as traitors and the Communists intro- duced a blll demanding their trial on charges of high treason. EANWHILE the Stinnes group vJt and the Otto Wolff trust were conduC-dng negotiations with the French in the Ruhr independent of their government. When the German charge d'affalres in Paris submitted to Premier Poincare the proposition of Chancellor 8tresemann for a confer- ence of France, Belgium andGermany in the occupied zone to arrange for the resumption of work, the premier rejected the plan. explaining that Ger- many had always contended that pas+ siva resistance in the Ruhr was loca+ and that now France was negotiating direct accords with the industrial lead- ] ors there and whii the local labor or- t ganizations, lie said, however, he was ready to examine any proposals regard- ing reparations payments which Berlin iaight make directly to the reparations con)lfJisioD. The (;eFT)laD government was deeply chagrined ty this rebuff, since it had officially abandoned pas- sive resistance. When the authorization bill was ualled up in the reichstag Thursday the first and second paragraphs were voted by a large laJority, but when tile measure us  whole came up for final vote the entire National part walked out, leaving the reichstag will out a quorum. Adjournment was taken until Saturday. If Chancellor Strese-t iaazt slmuld fail to secure the nece-[ sort two-thirds vote for the bill he is authorized by President Ebert to dis- solve the reichstag. These. varied complicatiorL brought about a panic on the Berlin bourse that carried the mark down to the ridicu- lous figure of 7,000,000,000 to the dol- Jar. The shops doubled all their prices and the people rushed about trying to get rid of their practically worthless paper money. The Communist leaders were making the most of the situation and were hopeful that the prospect of a winter of hunger and cold, together with the anger of the workers against the industrial leaders, would enable them to set up a revolutionary govern- ment. Docuuieuts seize d at communist headquarters at Breslau revealed a plot to overthrow the Stresemann gov- eminent and an attempt to organize a conlInunist state by force or arms. More than rift)" persons were arrested. Indeed. the lied peril in Gerlmmy was greater th'-m aI any time in the past. That Soviet Russia is well Informed of the conditions and ready to help the Communists is indiCated by the con- centratton of large bodies of soviet troops near the western border of Rus- sia. AVID LLOYI) GEORGE, now in Canada on his American tour, has no hesitation in expressing the opinlon that wars are not done with and that the next war may wlpe out our civiliza- tion. llls view of European affairs Is rather pessimistic, and his main hope is that the British empire, which he calls the .one effective league Of na- tions in the world today, will make It- self so strong that when It says "Halt :' the other nations will hear it. Such, in a way, is the purpose of the imperial conference being held in London. Plans were laid last week for making the empire on economic unit and for tying up trade so that none but subjects of the empire would benefit. These plans include a purchasing pool for empire food and raw material and a distribu- tion scheme for Ch'eat Britain; ways for insuring empire preference on lmb- llc (ontracts and for developing out- lying regions with the help of British money, and plans for providing an im- mediate market for British manufac- tures and the employment of British labor. The empire premiers are not united on many subjects and some of them have been severely criticislng some of Premier Baldwin's policies and acts. ZEFUSLN'G to be swayed from its traditional policy by the successes of the Farmer-Labor party in the Northwest, the American Federation of Labor in convention at Portland, Ore., voted decisively against resolu- tions calling on labor to unite with the farmers In forming a new nstional party. Of the 114 international unions, state federations and city ,.unelis on the roll call. all but 27 voted ire in- dorse the report of the-resolutions committee which Said : "Experience has demonstrated that any agemRt to mass and direct the potential and/ac - tual power of the wage earners through, any form of fixed party scheme Is to destroy that efficiencr that comes from flexible mobility of power to meet whatever .emergency may ar!se and from whatever source it may emanate. The policy and prac- tice of the American Federation of Labor te be partisan to prin,-lpiea and not to be partisan to politic-el parties has been full.)- Justified by experience." After a stormy debate tue conven- tion refused to recognize the soviet .m)verument of Russia, declaring the ,eople of Russia must first be given a -.llanos to vote on indorsement or re- mdlatlon of their present rn'era. The holshevlkt, however, had the support of some prominent delegates. When tie prohibition question wa taken up there was more qelrly com- plete unanhnity. Wltil only one dis- senting vote the convention adopted an appeal to congress to cimnge the Volstead act so as to permit tile man- ufacture and sale of light wines and! beer. of Okla OVERNOR WALTON J homa abandoned ills attempt_ to t head off Impeachment proceedings by the legislature, and himself called that body in extra session. When It met on Thursday he sent in a message strongly urging the passage of his bill for the unmasking of the Ku Klux Klan in the state. He had previously promised that If the bill were passed tie would resign, but the lower house went ahead with Its plan, resolving it- self Into an Inquisitorial body to in vestigate the governor's official con- duct. The most serious of tile charges against him are that he has exceeded his parole and pardrm au- thority, misused puhllc moneys and usurped constitutional rights by deny- Ing the right of recourse to habeas corpus under his decree of martial law. The Inquiry is likely to last a long time, and then the senate will sit as a trial body if the house votes an impeachment. NOTHER governor who is having a mighty hard time is McCray of Indiana His financial emharrass- ments have been before tile public for weeks and it ts charged there were irregular!ties in the sikming ,if no,,es wlflch he n,gtlab-d, lie has not. at this writing, been indicted, hut hank- ruptcy proceedings tlave been insti- tuted and civil suits against him started. A grand Jury is ;,mducting an investigation and Mr. McCray says he Is willing to tell it all the facts. In general he denies any wrongdoing and blames "political blackmail" for his troubles. T IS autilorltatlvely anneal:ted at the White House that President Coolidge believes industry throughout the United States is generally pros- perous, that business conditions are promising and that the outl+a)k is highly satisfactory. He has received report.s of the satisfactory c,mdition of many agricultural products, especially corn, of good markets for cattle and of fair prices for hogs. The fruit situa- tion has been handicapped oya car shortage, but the I2epartmen t of Agri- cniture is co-operating with the rail- toads, growers' organizations and others to relieve tlne strain. The tex- tile and steel industries are doing fairly well; some mining industries are not so prosperous; the Oklahoma oil reghm is having dlfliculk owing to the large bll production farther west. II T RRE(?ONCILABLES" of the sen- l ate were much plea.ed bY inti- mations, which were almost official as- sursnces, that President Coolidge has no Intention of taking a hand tn the foreign situation by urging the Hughes plan. which calls, for an unbiased commission to determine Germany's ability to pay the reparations. Mr. Lloyd George has lmlorsed this plan and it is favored by most of the Euro- pean nations though France will have none of ft. It was said also that Mr. Coolidge sees no advantage to be gained In the calling of an economic conference of the world powers until there Is a change in conditions in Europe.

(Prepared by the United States Department i of Agriculture.) i To stick to cotton or to change to  corn and hogs, to grow wheat and oats or to go into'dairying, or to cllange to any other type of farming which may at the time seem to oiler more profit- able returns than the prevailing type, is a question ever present in great farming regions, and one which is often keenly considered in time of ag- ricultural depression. In attempting to make such changes serious errors are almost certain to be made, says the United States Department of Agri- culture, unless those who are direct- ing the movement have a thorough un- derstanding of the forces which control the types of farming adapted to the different regions. Enterprisez Best Adapted. It Is possible, at leas in a general way, ays the department, to deter- mine what farm enterprmes are adapt- ed to a region by studying the phyal- cal,,biological, and economic conditions prevailing there, and the adaptability of various enterprises to these condi- tions. An analysis of the types of farming in the United States has been made on this basis and the discussion is presented in Farmers' Bulletin No. l",L9, Distribution of Types of Farm- hg in the United States, Just issued by the United States Department of Agri- culture. Physical factors such as soil and climatic conditions play an important part in the type of farming adaptable to a given region. Temperature limits some localities. Many other case are cited In which insect pests and fuugous diseases are determining factors. In the thir(l class are economic fac- the northern distribution of cotton, southern distribution of wlleat, and northern dlstrlhution of corm Rainfall and length of growing season are other important factors the effects of which are very apparent In our agriculture. Facto of Second Class. The second class of factors discussed in the bulletin is called biological fac- tors. The effect of the boll weevil In reducing cotton acreage near the "Gulf and Atlantic coasts is an example. The chinch bug has reduced the acreage of corn in southern Illinois, and the Hes- sian fly has changed the date of seed- Lug winter wheat and has probably re- duced the acreage of this crop in tors, such as cost of trausportatb)n and. distance from nlarket. Another Im- portant one is c(nnpetitton wltl reglous which can produce more cheaply. This last is a factor in limiting the acreage of corn, oats, wheat, barley, and rye In those parts of New England where + these crops thrlve. The bulletin aims to make clear the part these fundamenta! factors p]a In determlnlng the possibillty of estal> llshlng on a profitable basis a new ot different type of fanning, and to show hat the kind of farming whlch pre- vails Is based on them, rather than on the desires or whims of the farmers. A copy of the bulletin may be secured from the United States Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. l., as long as the supply lasts. Fall or winter Is the best time to apply control measures to rasbberry, blackberry or dewberry crops infested by the red-necked raspberry cane- l'borer, according to Farmers' Bulletl I 1286, by F. H. Chittenden, entomolo- )gist. The damage to these crops is caused by a flat-headed" milk-white borer, which is the arva of a smafl0 a'lender, veive{/biac'k beetle with COp" !pery red or golden thorax ("neck"). i The larvae form Irregular swellings or [ galls, which gradually enlarge the I canes and split the ttark. Canes thus ] Infested die, or become .weakened and fail to develop a crop. The beetle also does some Injury by feeding on the leaves of the plants. To control the Insect the Infested canes should be cut out in the fall or winter, or in the early spring before the beetles have emerged from them. All cuttings should be promptly burned. To Insure thoroughness, all wild blackberry, Paspberry or dew- berry plants nearby should receive the same attention. Cooperation among neighboring fruit growers in the ob- , servance of these measures for suc- cessive years is highly desirable. Farmers' Bulletin 1286 may he ob- tained by applying to the United States Department of Agriculture, Washington. Internal Freezing Does Much Harm to Potatoes Internal freezing injury, or frost ne- -osis, occurs when potatoes ae ex- posed to severe frosts, temperatures below twenty-eight degrees Fahren- heit The tubers show dark blotches in the flesh when they are cut open and allowed to stand a short time. The spots are usually most marked at the stem end, but they are scattered irregularly through the outer flesh or in a fine network or ring. Ordinarily the injury Is detected only upop cut- ting, although the affected tubers wilt more than the normal ones in storage. Potatoes may actually be frozen olld throughout becoming soft and mushy on thawing. AS a result of comingIn contact with a cold wall In storage, or being left above th ground before digging, potatoes may fmaeze on one side. Tubers Injured in this way are easily sorted out. 'urning sweet" is due to prolonged storage at low temperatures, twenty- nine to thirty-four degrees FahrenhelL not to real freezing. Tubers that have never been frost bitten may show this injury. Have a good thermometer in the room where potatoes are stored and keep the + temperature above twenty- eight degrees Fahrenheit. When shipping potatoe during cold weather In a heated ear, provide for some circulation of air from the stove to prevent black heart In the pota- toes near the heat and frost ln)ury In those in the outer parts of the car.

[x- cept the Muscovy, all our economic breeds of ducks are said to have origi- nated from the mallard or wild duck. Keeping Silage Knives Sharp Is Correct Plan On most silage cutters there are two knives--one on tht .flywheel and the other on the extreme inner edge of the mouthpiece or throat. A point to bear in mind is that this mouthpiece cutting edge must also be kept sharp. Many farmers are careul enough about keep- lng the flywheel knives sharp, but do not realize the need of sharpening the other cutting edge. It is also a distinct advantage to have the flywheel knife cutting edge close to the mouthpiece.

In order to control the disease the United States Department of Agricul- ture recommends that the farmer--- (1) Avoid sowing wheat after corn unless the cornstalks are removed and the stubble completely plowed under. (2) Plow under all crop refuse and dean up the old straw and grasses along the fence rows and in nearby waste places. (3) Use clean seed of adapted va- rieties. Seed slzould be thoroughly cleaned, graded and treated. (4) Sow wheat when the ground Is cool, winter wheat on the latest date In the fall, and spring wheat on the earnest safe date in the spring.

Too Much Moisture Will Cause Potatoes to Decay An excess of moisture will cause the 4,rowth of decay m the potato storage. Some growers make a prac- tice of "curing" their potatoes before Storing. This Is done by piling them in plies of 30 bushels or more, and cov- ering them with the potato vines. Af. ter the.potatoes are well dried so there Is no excess moisture, and are free from dirt. they may be placed in stor- age. Sometimes the ventilators of the storage are left open for severs days after storage to facilitate dry+ tug. Care should be used, howeve that potatoes In storage do not be- come to dry, as they may wilt or shrivel.
