Wlster, the well known Amer- ican writer, in a conversation re- cently j a special correspond- ent of the Ixmdon Times, a very illuminating explanation of nutionnl misunderstandings. He blamtd the hiitory books and ceniurad par- ticularly the American school history books, in regard to British- American j relations, with their biased accounts these relations.

Mr. Wliter, as the Times co; pondent recalls, was a very early American ally oC the Allies. To him we owed, when help .was welcome, that admirable statement of the case lermany which he entitled the "Pentecost of Calamity." In American literature he further holds ft foremost place, with such writings as "The Vir- ginian" and "Lady Baltimore." Mr. Wister, however, as the writer of the conversation given to the Times ob- serves, is just now lees concerned with literature than with the relations of the peoples, more particularly with the relations of the British and Amer- ican peoples. He it acting the role' of and in the process has antagonized those in his country in whom the germs of Anglo- phobia are difficult to whose favorite pastime is that of twisting.the lion's.tail.

The revising of American history books, u has been done al ready in the State of Pennsylvania, will be a great help in bringing that unanimity of sentiment and fellow-feel ing between the British Empire and the United States which every right- minded individual in both lauda will estimate, not only in the gnat desira- bility of BritUh-American friendship, but of the boon it will bring to human- ity u a whole.

In my opin- ion, it can't be too strongly emphaaix- ti that, if the nations are to progress on the right peaceful lines, the prac tical thing to do is to attend to the school hiitories. Of course, wan will not ctave because school histories hare become more sensible; but that is one of tbe at diiu'nishLns the chances of war. Imagine how the history of the war will be written in the school histories of Germany! 1 said some time ago that it would be well if the Allies could edit them. They can't. But just fancy what German children may ba taught about the causes and conduct ot the war! I'm happy to know that in my own State of Pennsylvania they have adopted a perfectly revised plan for our school histories. A syllabus has been prepar- ed in which nothing appears which does pot square with the facts of our Revolution and the quarrels with Eng- land."

Likening the channels ot trade to the arteries of the body, Mr. Morphy pointed out that again as in the case of the body arteries stoppage ot trade channels meant death. One of 'the chief contributing sources of trouble in Canada, Mr. Morphy said, was captious criticism by people not in a position to know, who criticised without reasoning.

JAPAN DOESN'T LOOK FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION ON DISARMAMENT MOVE TOKYO, Jan. 25. Restriction of armaments will be considered by the Japanese government should It be subject to certain limitations. It may j proposed by another nation, but Ilttla not legislate on anything affecting i- the following Crown, the making of peace and war, the navy, army, or air forces, treaties with Foreign States, titles of honor, trea- son, trade with any place outside that part of Ireland under ita jurisdiction, etc. It shall not puss laws affectinz customs or excise duties, Income tax or any tax substantially the same, nor shall it directly or indirectly endow any religion or impose any religious test. The Royal Irish Constabulary, the Dublin Metropolitan .Police, the Postal Service, Post Office Savings Trustee Savings Banks, and the Public Record Office are reserved services. Subject to the limitations mention- ed, Ulster Parliament will have con- trol over everything affecting the area under its jurisdiction, including the higher, sec- ondary, and elementary; agriculture, licensing, mines, factories aim work shops, the law courts, public health, old age pensions, health and unemploy- ment insurance, housing, labour ex- changes, friendly societies, public works, and, through its representa- tives on the Council of Ireland, it will have jurisdiction over the railways According to the financial estimates embodied in the Bill, after meeting all estimated expenditure, it will have a surplus of Precisely similar limitations and powers are imposed and conferred on Parliament of Southern Ireland. The Council of Ireland, which .will be a connecting link between the Par- liaments of Northern and Southern Ireland, will consist of a person ap- pointed by His Majesty, who will be President, and 20 members, 10 chosen by the Parliament of Northern Ireland and 10 by the Parliament of Southern Ireland. It will have power to make laws regarding railways and fisheries, and will have power over Private Bill legislation. In aplte of the resolve named by the Sein Fein, that the Southern Par- liament will not be allowed to come into existence, Sir Hamar Greenwood, Chief Secretary for Ireland, is very hopeful that within the next ulx months both Parliaments iwlll be in operation. All those interested In the :rue welfare uf Ireland will hope that Sir Hamar'a anticipations will be re- alized and that at last peace and con- tentraer.t will prevail thorn I hope is held out by Viscount Uqliida, foreign minister, that there will be any immediate movement toward disarmament. He was interpellated in the lower house ol parliament by members of the opposition and ad- mitted that the limiting ot arma- ments was being discussed by the powers. "Some practical men abroad how- he. declared, "do not approve of immediate disarmament although they agree In principle. The existing German situation is one factor which prevents a complete agreement on the subject. Japan's naval policy is not one of expansion but is one that can- not be avoided in the interests of self-protection. Japan, however, is ready to consider the subject of cur- tailment, in order to assure worlc peace, in case any power should make such a proposal. with the administration of affairs in Three Rivers. Industrial School Is Harshly Slated Grand Jury Says Work of the Teachers Mostly Camouflage Investigation TORONTO, Jan.

Stating that the jurymen on thoir visit to the school had been disap- pointed in the conduct oE the staff, in- mates and officials and in the sani- tary conditions, the report said "The work in the factories and shops ia apparently so much of a camouflage that your grand jury feels compelled to recommend that a spe- cial grand jury he appointed to thor- oughly investigate this institution." Mr. Justice Masten, the presiding judge, characterised the report as one ot the host had ever been brought in by a grand jury. BETTER LIVE PATIENT WITH SPONGE INSIDE THAN DEAD WITHOUT TORONTO, Jan.

The plaintiffs allege that a sponge had been sewed up in the wound and had caused such trouble that a second operation had been necessitated. Dr. Bruce stated that the operation by Dr. Archer had been handled "in an able and scientific way." He declar- ed that if it were an alternative be- tween having a live patient with a sponge in the patient's body, or of taking out tho sponge and having a dead patient, he would leave it in.
