slfeves. Senator Johnson spoke
fl'st; then Senator Borah. Both men

occasional comments from the crowd.

Treaty can agree now as to what it
lteans," said Senator Borah, amid
Uughter. .
"We in the Senate want to con
gtrue that Treaty, if that is possi

Treaty assures peace. Well, in 1916

months later we were in the war.

"I don't want to go into a League
at all, personally, but I didn't make
the issue. Now, I am particularly
arxious to find a way out of it if we
must go in. That is what the Sen

"Do any of you want to go into a
League that you can't get out of?"
All over the hall there were cries
tf "no; no."

a foreign nation to say when and
where the Monroe doctrine shall ap

to Study Weather
London, Sept. 11. —Meteorological
work on the British Empire is to
be taken over by the Royal Air
Force. Hitherto the study of the
weather has been the work of a
number of different departm/ents,

aviation and the essential part
which meteorological knowledge
must play in its progress, has
brought about the change.

w-ill be linked up with It. It even

Abundance of Imported Foods
Is Assured, It Is Re
York, Eng.j Sept. 11.—Abundance
of imported meat, bacon, cheese,
margarine, rice, tea, sugar, and ap
ples is assured the people of Great
Britain the coming winter by the
authorities, but home grown pro
; ducts, such as milk, meat, butter
and dried fruits, it is said, will be
■ scarce and costly.
Meanwhile the government food
. control will continue in order that
j rich and poor alike, may share in
' the available supplies. Nothing like
the hardships endured during the
last two years of the war is an
ticipated, because the government
supervision and distribution witl not
be so rigorous as when Haig's army
had its "back to the wall."
Feed Is High
The expense of feeding and fat
tening cattle is the factor that will
make home grown meat scarce.
Hay and oat crops are abnormally
short, and root yields In some parts
of the country are almost a failure.
Cattle "cake," which will have to
be used more freely, is more ex
pensive than last year.
The same considerations apply to
milk. The price for August was
fixed at 68 cents per gallon to the
dairyman, and for September at 75
cents. Last winter it was 20 cents
a quart, but higher prices are ex
pected the coming winter.
There is plenty of tea In the
country, but transportation systems
are so out of Joint, dealers say, it
will cost mors to handle and dis
tribute it Ba-on prices are rising
in America, which makes the British
price. Port and dock delays, due
to strikes and the general apathy
of labor, contribute to higher
Enough Sugar
Nobody is worrying about sugar
except as to price. The sugar com
mission has been very active in the
general market, and has obtained
enough to last the country until the
end of the year at prices which,
it is declared, are a little below the
average of Europe, but, of course,
much higher than the American
price. If the commission hnd to go
into the market now it wiuld be
compelled to pay as much for sugar
as the present retail price, and as
it will likely have to do that early
next year the consumer expects to
pay more.
Apples are high and scarce, the
controlled price being 18 cents a
pound. It is expected, however,
that the fine crop here in England
will serve to reduce this price ma
terially before the winter comes.
Bakers and the government ex
pects an increase in the cost of
bread. There are abundant wheat
supplies in Australia and the Ar
gentine, but the scarcity of shipping
makes immediate delivery impos
sible. So England must depend on
' the United States and Canada
which, the authorities, say means
1 costlier loaves.
