Okllcla which constitutes the nn-
clous of the Polish state. The Poles
desire Eastern Gallcla to include
Lemberp which is In the Ukraino
and the disputed provinco of Cholm
In Llttlo Russia.
The Poles are contending against
the Germans not only for German
Silesia and Posen and West Prus-
sia as Provinces populated chiefly
by Poles but also for tho city of
Danzig so as to provide Poland
with direct access to tho sea.
Belgium asks that her reparation
for damages wrought by Germany
shall be the first lien upon German
assets to the extent of at least 15.-
000000000 francs or up to a much
larger sum If Germany docs not re-
turn the machinery and the mate-
rials taken from Belgium. Belgium
believes that sho should bo paid
first because sho was tho first to be
Invaded because her neutrality was
violated and becauso she has suf-
fered from despoliation more than
any other country In tho war.
Belgium desires from Holland the
left bank of tho Scheldt and the
Peninsula of Maastricht which pro-
trudes into Belgian Lemburg. Bel-
glum also will ossont to a plebiscite
in Luxemburg to decide whether
that country wishes to Join Belgium
or France or to renin its autonomy.
Japan enters the peace confer-
ence as Baron. Makino tho senior
delegate has said "with no terri-
torial ambitions In China" and that
as for Tfllng-Tau "sho will hand It
back to China under the terms of
tho notes exchanged between China
and Japan In May. 1915."
Japan Burou Makino explains
"neither Intends nor desires to in-
terfere in Russian affairs but Is
willing if solicited to aid Hussla
In restoring order."
The Chlneso delegates a.sk to bo

ialism or aggression and desire tho
gradual abolition of "consular
rights" and to be allowed to impose
higher duties on importations. The
Chinese also ask for tho return of

War and pestilence for four years and the plac-
ing of AMERICA on a war footing have demanded
all American energies to the extent that things
beautiful have been neglected and failure to keep
up the beautiflcation of our American homes is
one of the sad results.
Peace has come and the demand for trees orna-
mental and other kinds of nursery stock is good.
We can furnish splendid trees and plants espec-
ially suited to this climate and soli and we will
