CARRIEB HIB BATTLE FOR
LEAGUE OF NATIONB INTO
HOME OF KIB ENEMIES.
GIVES COST OF GREAT WAR
llnforma Th*m of Lives and Treasure
Poured Out to Save
(By Mt. Clemens Mews Bureau)
Aboard President Wilson's Special
drain —Carrying ble war against thoee
who oppose tbe adoption by tbe Uni
ted States of the peace treaty and the
covenant of tbe League of Nations in
to their households, President Wilson
Hast week invaded California.
And there, where the question on
which league opponents have ham
mered the hardest, that of Shan Tung—
Is of meet interest, tbe president found
(the same enthusiasm among the peo
ple for peace and for insurance
against future wars. The people want
ithe long controversy ended. They
want this country to be able to again
turn Its undivided attention to social,
economic and Industrial development.
Their leaders may not feel this way,
ibut judging from the expressions
which met the president on every side.
The leaders have overstepped the
limits of the peoples patience hi their
stubborn determination to force a
change in the great document.
Must Take This League.
“We must take this League of Na
tions," said the president, “for there
is no way In which another can be
-obtained without compelling recon,
isideratlon by the powera And it
would sit very 111 upon my stomach to
take It back to Germany for considera
“All over the world people are look
ing to us with confidence our rivals
along with the weaker nations. I pray
God that the gentlemen who are de
laying this thing may presently see '/
In a different light.”
Germany, the president declared, i,
taking new courage from our delay
ratifying the treaty and her newf*
papers and public men were again be
coming arrogantly out-spoken.
Deeply Impressive were the figures
of the cost of the late war, in lives
and dollars. It was the first time that
the official statistics have been made
publio and the tremendous totals
shocked the president's audlenoes.
Shows Cost of World War.
"The war,” said President Wilson,
eoat GrCat Britain and and her Do
mains $38,000,000,000; PYance $26,000,.
000,000; the United States $22,000,-
000,000; Rußeia $18,000,000,000; Italy
$13,000,000,000 and a total, including
the expenditures of Japan, Belgium
and other small countries, of $123,000,-
“It cost the Central Powers as fol
lows: Germany $39,000,000,000; Aus
tria-Hungary, $21,000,000,000; Turkey
and Bulgaria $3,000,000,000.
“The United States,” the president
said, "spent one million dollars an
hour night and day for two yeare in
its struggle to save civilization. All
this, however, fades into insigni
ficance when the deaths by
battle are considered, declared
the president. Russia gave 1,-
700,000 men; Germany 1,600,000;
Trance 1,380,000; Great Britain 900,-
000; Italy 364,000; the United States
60,300. In all, almost 7,600,000 men
perished in the great struggle, or
1,600,000 more men than died in all of
the wars of the previous 100 years.
Bhould Remember Recent Horrors.
“These are terrible facts, and we
ought never to forget them. We went
Into this war to do a thing that was
fundamental for the world and what I
have come out on this Journey for is
to determine whether the country has
forgotten or not. I have found out.
The country has not forgotten and It
will never permit any who stands
In the way of the fulfillment of our
great pledges, ever to forget the sop
rowful day he made the attempt."
Arbitration and discussion, the pres
ident pointed out, must replace force
of arms in the settlement of world
controversies. Constantly he dwells
upon the fact that all the nations in
the League agree to do one of two
things, first to submit their differences
to arbitrable®, in which case they
agree to abide by the decision ren
dered, or, if unwilling to arbitrate, to
have their case discussed by the Coum
cil of the League, in which case stx
months Is granted for discussion.
Three months must elapse following
the result of this last step in arbitra
tion before the nation concerned can
Holds Out Hope For Ireland.
The president took advantage of
questions propounded by the San Fran
cisco Labor Council to give the lnfep
ence that he believes Ireland can bring
her case before the League of Nations
for settlement when the League is
actually in existence.
Shan Tung, he declared, will be re
turned to China. Japan, he said, had
given her solemn pledge to that effect.
And with the League of Nations in
force, said the president, we can, if
occasion arises, stand forth and say,
“This shall be done.”
NO ROOM FOR THE PESSI
MIST IN THE SOUTH.
From the Manufacturers Re
cord, Baltimore, Md.,
A prominent business man of
Baltimore, who has been on a
trip through the South, in a letter
from Jacksonville to the Manufac
turers Record says:
In many of the places 1 have
visited building operations are at
a standstill in anticipation of low
er costs of labor and material.
These people need to be waked up.
“Everywhere l go 1 learn that
there is an acute shortage of
homes—in some instances 3000
homes could he used to advantage.
In some places 1 have visited the
hotels are filled with men of af
fairs who are compelled to remain
there until they hear of a house or
apartment they can secure for
“In Atlanta there seems to be a
sentiment in favor of going ahead,
and already building operations
are beginning in a substantial
way, but other communities are
asleep at the swich. In making in
quiry in Jacksonville this same
condition prevails of increased
rentals and very few homes to be
secured. In Birmingham they are
doing some building, but not near
ly enough to cope with the situa
tion. I was told of one realty com
pany in that city which is erect
ing 25 houses, and before their
completion the greater number
have been sold.
“Business conditions since the
war are improving, and the great
est optimsm prevails. The man
who is not willing to go ahead
now will soon he relegated to the
rear by the advancing business in
terests. The croaker or eomplain
er is now out of his element.
“In talking with a representa
tive of the General Electric To. he
tells me the company has done
more business since January than
they did during war times the
whole of last year. He says the
present industrials in the State of
Florida are increasing their units
of power in order to be ready for
the increased volume of business

when it comes. The big corporate
interests are now enabled to find
a ready market for their bonds
for development purposes. He also
told me of negotations with three
big interests in Florida wjho in
tend to start phosphate factories
on a big scale.
“The retail stores, furniture
houses, etc., are preparing for big
business. In talking with a Balti
more man who was in Macon and
who represents five large furni
ture factories, he told me he had
sold $61,000 worth of furniture
in a week’s time, and since leav
ing Baltimore up to present time
had sold more than he sold all of
last year; so it looks likethis coun
try will soon blossom like the
Bteam Against Sails.
Modern naval development may be
■aid to have begun with tbe rapid In
crease in the size of ships which took
place at the close of the fifteenth cen
tury; and mediaeval history finally
closed with the battle of Lepanto In
1571, the last great action in which
rowing galleys played an Important
part. From this time the sail-pro
pelled man-of-war was gradually im
proved until early In the nineteenth
century, when sails began to give way
A LEOPARD CAM
Mr. Dodson, the “Liver Tone”
Man, Tells the Treachery
Calomel loees you a day! You know
what calomel is. It's mercury; quick
silver. Calomel is danperous. It
crashes into sour bile like dynamite,
cramping and sickening you. Calomel
attacks the bones and should never be
put. into your system.
When you feel bilious, sluggish, con
stipated and all knocked out and believe
you need a dose of dangerous calomel
just remember that your druggist sells
for a few cents a large bottle of Dodson's
Liver Tone, which is entirely vegetable
and pleasant to take and is a perfect
substitute for calomel. It is guaranteed
to start your liver without stirriDg you
up inside, and can not salivate.
Don't take calomel! It can not be
trusted any more than a leopard or a
wild-cat. Take Dodson’s Liver Tone
which straightens you right up and
makes you feel fine. Give it to the
children because it is perfectly harmless
and doesn’t gripe.
