The Polish elections have been very SatisfactorY . .

for Marshal Pilsudski and his Goveriiinent: When he.. seized political power, the Seym was so divided as to be incapable of any good work. Now he is credited with the support of 135 seats solidly behind him. Whether he will use this power as an encouragement to, continue or increase his own authority we shall soon learn. He will be wiser if he is content to delegate power to a Seyrn that is so friendly to him. But that is a severe test for a dictator. We are very sorry to see no advance being made in the negotiations between_Poland and Lithuania, and that M. Valdemaras has refused to go to Geneva as invited by the Council of the League of Nations.
