It would seem by the latest reports that the members of the you Cal of the league nations will formulate some face saving Means of Patching up the dispute Between Japan and China Over the wrenching of Manchuria from its ancient allegiance. The Compromise will be doubtless in favor of Japan which will mean that that country will be Given a free rein to. Bring about order in Manchukuo As the new state is termed while it will have to use its wits and perhaps its arms to assert its privileges in China. It is not a Nice Prospect but the trouble is to see what the. League can do. The Manchester guardian has been one of the most outspoken British journals in condemnation of Japan s breach of All the treaties at Issue. It is Plain that the japanese \ Are in the wrong and the journal referred to affirms the dignity of an aggressor nation is less important than the lives and Liberty of millions. Not Only is the peace of the far East at stake but the whole value of Geneva and the Briand Kellogg pact. It. May be that the Kellogg peace pact is at stake but this will appear to the big Powers less of an evil than defying Japan. The Small nations too will have More reason for their growing belief that the league is an instrument of the larger nations but they too Are powerless in the matter. There is doubtless a Good Deal in the conciliatory remarks of or. S. M. Bruce the australian Delegate at Geneva who is thus reported the. Assembly should not censure openly or implicitly either China or Japan As this would seriously impair Ano possibly destroy the possibility of conciliation. The league s authority was derived from moral and not physical Force j and the future of the league depended on the Way the i dispute was handled. The Lytton report showed that the position was hardly contemplated by a covenant where a government has not control of the whole of its territories and nationals. The Constitution of the league pre supposes that All the Mem Ber states Are guardians of Law and order and As the vote of anyone at the meetings of the executive body the league coun cil can Block a decision the Council cannot function except by a unanimous vote. Of course there Are provisions for sanctions where a nation commits acts of War but in this Case Japan is insistent that she is not an aggressor and that the move for Independence from China in Manchuria come from the nationals of that country. This the Lytton report Controvert flatly of course but where there is not undisputed evidence the Way is left open for debate and this has been taken full advantage of. By Japan. The conflict of opinion May in the end come Down to what is hinted at by the Manchester Organ that the value of the league is at stake in the decision which is made on this ticklish Issue. It is certain that if the Lytton report is upheld Japan will withdraw from the league and weakened by such an action Geneva thereafter May be but a Cypher in the world s counsels. We Are living in an age of not merely great events but of crises and this May Well prove to be one of them. The weakness of the Case for China resides in the chaotic state of authority in that land. Granted that the representative of the banking government put up a Strong Case for his country s rights it has to be admitted that he is speaking with a very Uncertain authority. It is a land in fact where one faction is cutting the throats of another and this weakness was doubtless the cause in the first place of Japan s excursion into the troubled land of the manchus. There appears to be one certainty and it is that if Japan gets her Way at Geneva she will need to Bend All her military energies to hold Down her veiled authority in Manchukuo and at the same time to re establish her Trade with China. But in the conflict whether she is right or wrong China will have to rely on her own resources. The league will not Render tangible Aid and could not if it would. Sunday trading. Ulverstone fruit shops. Hours extended. Messes. A. F. Riovo and w. M j Mara waited on Tho Leven Council its meeting on saturday morning t asked that Tho hours for keeping the fruit shops open to extended. 1 Council acceded to their request. Or.

Till 1 ., till c ., and at night from 7 till the Warden said that the Mot restricting the hours was carried Diing. Tho current year and consequent an almost unanimous Voto would to quire to Moko an alteration. Or. R. L. Parsons disagreed with to proposal. In the past the Council i received several deputations from to ministers fraternal on Tho subject sunday trading and now the count proposed to take action it should in do so without hearing any other View the Council had previously Given to matter full consideration and it Shoa not act without getting other Vic i Points. Tho churches played a Groci j part in Tho social system and had big influence in the Community. A though to would go fishing on a Sui Day to did not agree to sunday trac Irig especially with children about. Breaking the Sabbath or. Pearson what is Tho diff Crone Between fishing on sundays and Sui Day trading or. Parsons a lot of difference. On is recreation and the other is following Ono s employment for profit. Or. Hobbs it s breaking Tho Sab Bath. Or. Parsons disagreed. Tho Council discussed Tho Matte when the deputation had withdrawn and one councillor remarked that since Tho shops Wero permitted to open of sunday afternoons sunday school collections had decreased by one third. Or. A ii. Deproso snid they must Realise that Tho times for businessmen Wero difficult and Tho Council should meet them is far is possible. To could not Seo that there was a moral Prin Ciple involved As Tho Council permit Ted Tho shops to. Open so it was Only a matter of Tho hours. No employees would to affected in any Way. To moved that Tho previous motion fixing the hours be rescinded. This was seconded by or. C. Scur Rah and carried. Or. E. Hobbs m.h.a., moved that Tho hours be from 10 till 1, 3 till 0 and 8 till 9. In seconding the motion or. Scur Rah said to Felt that if it was right to allow Tho shops open in Tho after noon it was right to allow them opon it night. Or. G. Carey suggested that Tho hours on sunday mornings should to from la till 1 instead of from 10 . Tho Warden moved an amendment that Tho morning hours to from la til 12.30. To thought this should to sufficient. Or. Carey seconded. Tho amendment was lost and Tho motion was agreed to. Service car destroyed by fire.

Thanking you for your Community services and assuring you of our sup port for the future �1600 in wages. Commenting on Tho matter yesterday to resident said a Strong argument in favor of Tho retention of Tho local Plant was. Tho fact that approximately �1000 is spent yearly in wages. An other aspect was that Tho company had Given excellent service at a vory cheap rate up to Dato machinery had Boen installed from time to time in order that an efficient service could to maintained and at present a special addition was being made including a special Lino to of Prato Tho a Ray Plant which it was proposed to establish at Tho Devon Hospital.
