remote private war between Russia and Japan in the remote processes of outer Mongolia is being called the battle of communiques on high here The Japanese have been hitting the world headlines regularly by announcing from Tokio that they shot down so and so raany Russian planes Moscow gener ally tops them a few days later by an nouncing the destruction of a larger num ber of Jap anese planes The boys seemed to have over reached the limit of world credulity when one capital got its total destruction up to 450 planes a few days back With all this claiming going on authorities here decided to tap their best sources to ascertain if there might be a real world war threat in this situation They as certained there was none 3 40000 Each on Lines Here is what they found Jap anese and Russians now have ap proximately 40000 men each on their respective sides Both have been putting men in there since the trouble started in May They had small detachments there then guarding an

they say in the congressional cloakrooms since the quietus tactics practicec by Uncle Joe Martin the republi can mentor in the house proved successful in the adoption of the Hatch bill and the Smith resolu tion Whenever Uncle Joe got wind o a republican who felt the inspira tion of a speech rising within him he slipped around and soothed the seething colleague He ordered all speeches to be made in the cloak rooms none on the floor As a result nothing republican was done to interfere with th democratic split on these two measures which the white house has been ardently trying to block They were adopted by the demo crats with silent help of minority republicans e Victory for Garner The Hatch bill may make the task of Mr Roosevelts friends in lining up officeholders for the democratic convention more dif ficult but not impossible Politicos figure he can still get his delegates from the local po litical machines And certainly CIO for instance would be glad to furnish him with trustworthy delegates slates he could use But the cloakrooms consider the passage of the bill even if Mr Roosevelt refuses to sign it a tremendous victory for the friends of the Garner candidacy The Garner organization has been making an advertised point so liciting the rank and file of the party and avoiding the federal officeholders whom they could not expect to get anyway The republicans certainly have come to life even if it be a silent one Senators Taft and Townsend have been having field days con tinuously on the invisible spending bill in the senate banking commit tee Although in the minority they succeeded in trimming the meas ure materially Senators Hiram Johnson and Borah furnished the same kind of leadership in the de feat of the arms embargo repeal er The small group of republi cans in both houses are working in almost unprecedented unity under foxy leadership to accom plish these successes Democrats have succeeded in getting most of their important bills through
