Before the blockade committee resolutions are voted on, It Is expected that en effort uVI In; made to obtain a vote abrogating the rule requiring tintmluilty. as it believed a unanimous decision on committee recommendations is Impossible. In add'tion to resolutions Interpreting the covenant of the league, the committee proposed an amendment to article 10 of the covenant, which provides for united action against a state violating the agreement. The amendment follows: "The council of the league will give an opinion whether a breach of the covenant has taken place. When the council gives such opinion, the votes "of states charged with having committed :i breach of the covenant nnd of states liringlng the charge, whether they nre members of the council under article 4 or have been specially summoned, shall not be reckoned In determining whether or not there lias been a unanimous decision." Another proposed amendment reads: "The council may, in the case of a particular member, postpone the coming into force of any of these measures for a specified period where it is witlsfied such postponement will facilitate the attainment of the object of the measures to be applied, or that it. is necessary In order to minimize the loss and inconvenience which will be mused such members." . This amendment Is proposed to satisfy the Scandinavian members, who demanded exemption from the blockade obligation should the measure be applied to neighboring states. 1 111 FEW ATTRACTIONS IN SHANGHAI Chinese City Offers Few Inducements to Americans Washington It is even harder In find a job and comfortable living accommodations in China than In (lit I'nlted States, and Americans unless they have some definite engagement In Shantung are urged to not go there ty Ashley M.

Chicago woke up the other morning to stare at. a scene a bit out of the ordinary on the grounds of the Chicago V Motor club at Sixtieth street and Jpr ' Cottage Grove avenue, within astone's throw of the Midway of L World's fair fame. First impressions recorded several big irniy trucks, 25 automobiles of varied vintages knd makes, a score or more of "bungalow trailers," men and women in khaki, children of all ages, family washing flapping on lines, fires going, the smell of bacon and coffee, family breakfast groups, and a big sign that set forth that the Chicago Motor club was entertaining "Gen." W. D. Scott's modern caravan, eu route from Brooklyn, N. to Buhl, Idaho. "Times change nnd we with them," sagely re- marked an ancient philosopher. They do, indeed. though probably we change less than do the times. Tor Chicago, young as It Is It was not incorporated as a city until 1837 has seen many a caravan headed west in the old days. But thev were caravans of "prairie schooners," drawn by oxen or mules. And the men and women were going forth to face the unknown, fight Indians, turn up the prairie sod, contend with grasshoppers and drought and put up a fifty fifty battle with fate for a home and a living. Not so this caravan. It was traveling In comfort and at speed. It knew Just where it was going. It was scheduled for kindly attentions along the way and a warm welcome. Its land was secured. There was water for irrigation. Houses and warehouses were ready.' Everything down to the last detail had been arranged. Failure was unthinkable. Success seemed assured. Shades of Kit Carson, Marcus Whitman and Brigham Young! What a contrast the Lincoln to the Santa Ke trail of the highway of Thirties, the Oregon trail of the Forties, the Mormon trail of the Fifties, the "I'lke'a Teak or Bust" of the Sixties! The figures of the census of 1920 show that the trend of the population from the country to the city has become greatly accentuated since 1910.-Nofor the first time In the country's history. More than half the entire population is living In "urban territory." That Is to say thnt of the population of 105,0.83,108 persons 51.9 per cent are living In cities and 48.1 ier cent in rural communities In the census of 1010 the corresponding percentage!! were 40.3 and 53.7. a Tills Is a condition thnt is regarded as neither desirable nor entirely safe.

From innny viewpoints farming Is the highest and best of rolling. Farming Is an honest business. The farmer Is no useless consumer, no parasite. He Is a producer; he contribute directly to the wealth of the nation. He Is Independent and Is beholden to o man for place or favor. He climb np by dragging others down.

One of the photographs reproduced herewith thows Iioyal N. Allen of the Chicago Motor club welcoming William D. Scott, leader of the caravan. Mr. Scott used to live In Minneapolis. Then he went to Boston. Later he became a successful sales manager In Brooklyn, with a home at 230 Decatur street. He Is a middle-age- d man, with a wife and two children. During the war he made e a reputation as a man." lie had made up his mind to drive to the West this summer, buy a ranch, hang up his hat and grow up with the country. Several of his neighbors grew interested and asked to go along. And that's how the colony idea started. Then Mr. Scott wrote to commercial clubs and state and county olllcials in different parts of the West. Gov. David W. Davis of Idaho responded promptly with a definite offer. Mr. Scott went to Idaho and made a study of land In Twin Falls county, along the Snake river. Here's the way Mr. Scott tells It: "That settled it. When I saw that land I knew It was Just the place I was looking for, and I Immediately took an option on (3,120 acres. The land was offered to nie at the uniform price of $125 an acre, with water rights, $25 an acre to be paid down at purchase and the balance within ten years at 6 per cent Interest. "This whole land project is supervised by the state. It Is financed by the Idaho Farm Development company, the president of which Is B. T. Meredith, who was President Wilson's secretary of agriculture and who Is a practical farmer and the proprietor of an agricultural newspaper In Des Moines, la. Mr. Meredith and his associates. Incorporating under the Cary act, spent $625,000 developing these tracts. The waters of three tributaries of the Snake river, draining the watershed of the Jarbidge mountains, 47 miles southwest-warfrom our colony, were dammed and in the Cedar Creek reservoir. Thence a Meel flume' leads the water down through the ennyon of the Little Salmon river. Irrigating the lands which we have taken np for our future homes and ranches. We have. In all, an area of about three miles by six. "Tlds Irrigation enterprise Immediately made mnrvebnisly fertile many thousands of acres which theretofore had been merely a sagebrush prairie. The ar-- a hud been used only as cattle Vange and was one of the most sparsely settled districts in the state. With Irrigation, there Isn't a better country for growing alfalfa, onions and the famous Idaho potatoes. On farms in the same neighborhood and enjoying like advantages to ours there have been Itrown world record crops of alfalfa, wheat to the tune ef P2 bushel to the acre, and potatoes, rating as high as 642 bushels to the acre. "Buhl, our nearest railroad town. Is about 12 miles from the most distant ranches of our colony. If Is a lively town only nine years old, but with about 7,Xo population. A fine road, which Is more than ft) miles long and which runs directly through our tract, connects Buhl with the new mining town of Jnrbtdge. Out of the Jarbidge mountains the Guggenheim Interests have taken more gold than all the yellow metal yielded by Alaska. The town of Jarbidge Is the natural center of that rich country, nnd our colony will be Its nearest source of supply, with a good road running straight Into It." Mr. Scott returned to Brooklyn bubbling over lth enthusiasm. Ills enthusiasm was Infectious. He wn Ipenieged with applications for membership. Hut the B.120 acres will make only 129 trnct tf 40 acres each. So a weedlng-ou- t process was began. Every prospective member was put through the third degree. The rule was laid down that every accepted member must be "100 per cent American"; roust have at least $3,000 in cash; must be able to tnke care of himself and family until ihe first crops are marketed. Even then tha 12S members of the colony were quickly secured. In the meantime, the Idaho people, who had evishine to the Brooklyn people, were dently tnke.ii doing their part. Governor Davl visited Brooklyn nnd addressed a meeting of the colonists. The Buhl chamlrt-- r of commerce sent Ben II. Bnshmnn, one of Its leaders and secretary of the Itotary club, with offers of service from the chamber and th rlub. So the tlesl went through without a hitch "four-minut- d S Delta, Utah In a desperate attempt to get out of the state nnd to elude searchers, making their liberty permanent, Ed Harris and Oscar Bianey, who escaped from the Utah state prison last week, are believed to have been responsible for the robbery of $2000 from the Delta postoffice In Millard county early Wednesday. Word was received at Salt Lake shortly after the disoverey at 7 :30 o'clock that the postoffice had been robbed. According to the postmaster, James A. Faust the robbery was committed about 2 o'clock. He stated that entance was gained by forcing a rear door. vWUh the exception of $150 in cash, the loot consisted of postage stamps. The loot was obtained from the safe. It Is supposed that the robbers secured a hammer or another instrument with which to batter in the doors, which now bear ample evidence of the thieves' work. Fingerprints upon the safe and the door will be taken In ah effort to Identify the robbers. Mr. Faust said that the robbers left an automatic pistol behind. This is believed to have been one of the wen-- , wins secured by the convicts when they, with three others, planned to escape fro mthe state prison. While Ilarrls and Bianey escaped, the. three others, as reported a few days ago, were found hiding in an abandoncr shop at the prison and they surrendered. Warden James A.' Devlne said thnt the part of the country In which the postoffice robbery was committed was an old stamping ground of Harris, who was convicted a few months ago of robbery of a bank at St George, L'tah. At that time Hurris sought escape through Nevada and the warden said he believed that Harris would again attempt to seek escape in that direc tion, possibly by traveling via Ely. He said that every possible opening was being watched and that all the au thorities in the locality had been advised. As a consequence It was thought that Hurris would not remain long at large. The suspicion that Ilarrls and Bianey are responsible for the robbery at licit u Is said to be strengthened .by the fact thnt the' men escaped Mr. Mnlon Brough said that she had fed a man who closely resembled the pictures published of Harris. Information to this effect was received by Chief s of police Joseph E, Burbldgo from the state prison. While Hurris from Mr. Brough last Tuesday night. . i i and the start was made from Brooklyn on July 2$ The only semblance of trouble was over the selection of those to form the first caravan. Of course, there was disappointment on the part o those who had to wait. But there were reason why all could not go. The principal one Is that H .Is Impossible to clear the sagebrush off all of th 5,120 acres all at once and prepare the land foi cultivation. Also, some members require time to close out their business interests to advantage. Probably the second caravan will not set out "till next summer. Of the colonists as a whole Mr, Scott says this: "Of the 400 or more In our colony about CO per cent are Brooklynites. Approximately 25 per cent now live in other boroughs of New York cltyj about 10 per cent hall from New Jersey or New England, while the remaining five per cent come from scattered localities, some of them In tha South. About 10 per cent of the whole number of these pioneers are former residents of the West, but not more than 15 per cent of them, have had any practical experience at farming either In tlw East or In the West. "Nobody la borrowing trouble because of lack of experience,' however. Idaho Is by no means shortsighted to the advantages the success of so widely advertised an enterprise holds out Expert from the Idaho Agricultural college are to provide supervision and skilled labor for the first year. We are told that If we work In harmony with these experts, obeying their directions, they will guarantee results. The Idaho authorities predict that wa" can pay out by the end of the third year on the. proceeds of alfalfa, onion seed and potato crops. As furiher evidence that Idaho waits for us with welcoming arms outstretched, a construction company already la at work erecting permanent bungalow homes for many of our party, to be. available directly on .our arrival. And there Is being built a warehouse In which may be stored such household effects pending their occupancj of their new domiciles as the colonists may elect to forward to Idnho Instead of consigning to the auction man before they shake the dust of Brooklyn from their feet Probably there will be not lest than 'M carloads of freight, chiefly household effects, to be forwarded by rail." Some people would doubtless think thnt an automobile Journey of 2,500 miles was quite a trip under the circumstances and thnt the railroad could do the Job not only faster but easier. The colon-lathave figured that all out. Says Mr. Scott: "In the first plnce, railroad transportation rates, nre awfully high ; we travel much more cheaply this way. Besides, a motor car Is an essential on an Idaho ranch; why not kill two birds with one stone? We've got a pretty complete caravan; we're traveling pretty comfortably. Npcedlng I not permitted, the Idea being to maintain a steady puce of about 'i miles an hour on an average, the caravan touring only during the day and pitching Its bivouac each night. In addition fo the passenger cars and the bungalow trailers, there are service trucks, an administration three three-tocar, a traveling postofllce and a quartermaster's car nnd a pair of extra trucks whose duty It will be to run ahead of the caravan during the nights to keep It properly supplied with provisions and equipment. "And finally, th tour Itself appeals to us sentimentally. We're seeing the country to advantage and we're going to have the delight of going through Yellowstone National park." The caravan reached Chicago by way of Albany, Buffalo and Niagara Falls, Cleveland and Toledo. It started west from Chicago over the Lincoln highway. M will follow the Way to Cheyenne. Wyo., where great doings were scheduled bmnefco. busting, a barbecue and a regular celebration. s n "Out-wher- e Hired Assassin Convicted Cleveland, O.
