It is said that ^ the allies will do everything in or-der that Americans may participate in future conferences.  Important problems, the newt per says, will be settled in theL lure by counsels, by Premiers of France, Italy and England. This counsel will meet sometimes in Paris and sometimes in London, and will examine principally Russian and Turkish problems. The spirit which prevails at the London conference, the Matin says, is good and the necessity for close co-operation with the allies is recognized.

There must be individuals or organizations sufficiently interested to engage in the work of distributing benevolence. An organization is superior in effectiveness to any individual, however zealous he may he. There must also be cases of need, else charity is only a foolish pastime of sentimentalists. Then there must be sufficient funds to allay suffering and provide the organization with the wherewithal to care for the needy.  Of these essentials Ada is lacking only in the third. We have the organization. The recent combination of the United Charities with the executive committee of the local Red Cross provides an organization abundantly able to supervise the work of mercy and to care for all Who may stand in need. We also have the needy in our midst and shall have so long as the saying of Christ is true: “Ye shall have the poor with you always.”  But we are lacking in the third essential. This is not the fault of a people who have never turned deaf ears to the call of mercy. It is the fault of a single circumstance. No one has ever made a systematic effort to arouse the city to local needs and no one has ever asked the citizens to organize a city-wide movement for the support of charitable agencies. A few* of the more generous have made regular contributions to the United Charities, but the city as a w hole has never become interested in local charities. It is not the fault of the citizens. They have responded cheerfully to every call, whether that call has come from the Near East, the Far East, the frigid North, or the islands of the seas.  By th* Associated Pf TOKlO.
