LONDON, March 15.?After many
months of complicated negotiations the
Anglo-Russian trade agreement prob?
ably will be signed to-morrow. Several
time? heretofore the Rgreenient has
been at the point of consummation, but
last-minute stipulations by one side or *
the other always, have held up matter?.
The essentia! points of this docu-:
ment were summarized in a public an
nouncement several months ago. Brief- '
ly it proride. for an interchange of
commodities throogh official trad?
agent3 station*d in both Great Britain
and Russia. The most recent discus
sior.s of its tercns have centered on
nuch technicalities as the machinerv for
ftr.ar.cir.g trade and, particularly,
mutual guarar.ties to abstain from '
rhe who'.e process of evolution in
the agreement has beer, marked by re
criminations on both sides. Leo Kame
neff, one of the Russian envoys who
had a part in the preliminary work on
it. was eompelied to leave Great Brit?
ain because he engaged in propaganda
for the Red government, and on sev?
eral oecasior.s the political fortunes or
misfortunes of the Moscow administra
tion apparent'.y affected the negotia?
^\ hen the Moscow government on
December SO last year recalled Leonid
Krassin, the So.viet trade emissary
here, the breakdown of all discussions I
looking toward an agreement was
generally reported to have been in
volyed. However. a London dispatch
to The Tribune on that date said. and
correctly, that an agreement had been
reached and that Krassin was going
home merely for consultation on cer
tain points in the preamble.
The amendments which Krassin has
been pressing since he returned to
London a few weeks ago fall
three classes: First. a list of border
states around both countries in which
there is 3aid to be no hostile propa
ganda; second. the demand that Great
Britain withhold support from pre
tenders to the government of Russia,
and, third, a reservation by which the
agreement is rer.dered void" if Russian
gold is attached by a third party, un?

Whitney Lrges Transit Bill

Travis H. Whitney. formerly Public
Service Commissioner. who spoke for
Governor Miller's traction bill at the
Broadway Tabernacle Forum, Fifty
sixth Street and Broadway. last night,
suggested that the reason Mayor H;
lan had never mentioned the name of
Thomas F. Ryan when speaking about .
traction manipulation was that Ryan's
son was or.e of the mii'.ionaire police
"In a'.l Mayor Hylan's talks on this
quesf.cn," said ?.fr. Whitney. "I never
heard him mention the name of Thomas
F. Ryan, who has been in the fore of
traction manipulation. and I have won
dered if the reason for this wc-re not
the fact that Ryan's son is or.e of the
miilionaire police deputies."
Henry H. Curran, President oi the

LONDON, March 15? The Tribune's ?
dispatch from Washington on Monday '
saving that the Harding Administration j
was about to conccntrate the Atlantic !
and Pacinc fleets of the United States '
r.avy in the Pacific Ocean for reasons I
of sound naval strategy has been prom- .
inently featurcd in the English press
and ha? aroused much interest on this
side of the water.
The news comes at a time when Brit?
ish naval estimates are under review
and only a few weeks before the con
ference of premiers scheduled to be
held in London to discuss questions of
imperial poliey?among them the pro-1
I . naval building holiday and the
projected renewal of the Ar,g!o-Jap
Struggle for Vap Invohed
The natural deduction here from the
Washington report is that the Navy De
partment's decision is a political move
p irtance, particularly as the ques?
tion of the disposition of the Island of
Yap, in the Pacific, where the united
fleets will patrol, is expected to come
up soon for final decision.
| Although there is a trend toward
economy in Great Britain's naval build- .
ing plans, and some members of Par
liament are raising objections already |
to the naval estimates because they are
declared to be too great. in the present
economic crisis, the Admiralty can
liardly be expected to remain inactive
long. i he conservative inclination of
ihe present estimates probably will dis
r.ppear within a few months. ' The Par
liamentarians who ooject to huge naval
expenditures are not likely to carry '
weight when the final vote is

British to Build Four Giants '
The British naval program, it is
understood, provides for the construc
tion of four giar.t battleships, costir.g
ab >ut I40,00( ,000 each, in the next
four years. Each of these will have a
tonnage of 30,000. will carry ten fif
teen-inch guns ar.d will have armament
to protect them a^ainst torpedo at?
tack. They will have speed tsceeding
that of the Hood. which is the last
word in dreadnoughts.
There is a growing belief here that
RR ilties are developing in the
: Ocean. Great Britain must
take a definite stand in the near fu- i
ture, for the renewal of the Anglo
Japanese alliance will soon be a live
- le. Opinion here is divided on
ether the alliance should be cor.
tirued The overwhelming majority of
Britons sympathize with the United
States, although it is true that they

ton-Evans, Secretary for War, in in-J
troducing the army estimates in the
House of Commons to-day said the
ultitnate aim of the government was
to reereate the expeditionary force of
si:-: divisions. At present, however, the I
army was very far from being as com- ?
plete as before the war. he declared.
The V.'ar Secretary said it had been
decided to provide fourteen divisions oi
territorials as a secor.d line. Provision
had been made for developing a light
tank to cooperate with the infantry,
he continued, and a fast. powerful ,
tank which would be more useful with .
the cavalry. The general view, the
Secretary said, was that mechanical
f.ghting must be developed, because
it was more economicai in peace times
and saved manoower in a war.

Newton to Hold

Appointment of Aldridge a*
Colleetor To Be Held Up
Opposes Spoils Politics
Koenig Here for Parley
Hint Given President Will
Not Be Hasty in Shakinir
the New York Plnm Tre?>
By Carter Fieid
WASHINGTON. March 15.?Pres dent
Harding has decided not to remove
Byron P.. Newton. Colleetor of the Port
of Xew York. until the expiratlor, of
his term next September. At that time
the President will send to the Senate
the nomination of Georg? W. Aldridge,
of Rocheater. Mr. Aldridge has 8ig
nified his willingness to accept the
niace. Indorsement for the appointment
was offered jointly to the Rochester
leader by Senators Ca'der and Wads
worth and by Xational Committeeman
harles D. Hilles.
Mr. Harding is understood to believe
that Colleetor Newton has been an
efficient and generaiiy excellent official.
and that there is. no good excuse. save
po itics. for removing him pricr to the
expiration of his term, There is no
doubt, however, that the decision in
tl e N'ewton case. which came as a sur
prise to the politicians vrre to-day, is
. and that the rule of refusing
to remove men from office before their
terms expire will be adhered to by Mr.
Harding on virtually all appointments
which have definite terms.
Spoils Politics in Disfavor
Xo sympathy, it is said. will be given
by the Administration to any such
?? '" lesale finding of charges against in
cumbenta as. came to pass shortly after
the inauguration of President Wilson
in 1913. after the Republicans had been
in power sir.ce 1897. The President is
extremely anxious to avoid any such
demonstration to the pur>:-c. it is said,
of old-?ashioned spoils politics.
Samuel Koenig arrived here to-night
for a conference with the Xew York Sen?
ators on patronage questions. It was
brought out in Mr. Koer.ig's confer?
ences that there is not going to be anj
speedy shaking of the p!um tree, so far
as appointments in Xew York are con
cerned. Adjournment of the Senate to
day without any of the Xew York local
appointments being sent in makes ::
fairly certain that none will be made
before next month. Even if they were
made before April 11, when the extra
sessiop of Congress convenes, they
would be only recess appointments. but
Mr. Harding is said to be averse tc
making recess appointments unless
' some vita! need for a speedy change
can be shown him.
