M-anted by thu Reparations ( ommis

rrn Raymond Potreare, who argued
hat Germany had not pu?n to the limit
f her eapac.?y and that sont? rnoi -

burden. He told Lloyd <<? rge ?
Germany should b" called upot to "
pose heavier taxation, equivalent per
?"?ao t-> th" French, otherwise there
c.ou'd be no talk of a moratorium.
The conclusion in Belgian cir le?.

Botp the Belgian and Carman dele?

sions, a>td received confidential in?
formation, which w.-i" greeted by the
German? apparently with satisfaction,
wl ; le th? Belgians r,pr>eared to be

nan Foreign Minister, informed The
\n.iocia*ed Pre:,?: ''We must await the
formation of the French Cabinet and
t' ?ppeara-v-?-- in the Chamber befon
? C mal.e a statement.''
Wins Point Against Briand
The confermco turned out to be
juite a success for the new French
S'remier, according to the French view,
as he apparently convinced Lloyd
'ieoriio that it would be construed by
the French nation ?,.- unfortunate, and
by himself aa inimical to him person?
ally, should Lloyd George meet e\
'remi-r Briand and Pr. Rathenau, the
I n consequence of this Briand's %is it
o the British Embassy v.---.. merely
social fur.ct on. He had a cup i ? tea
with Loi I ilard:;.ire, the Bi ti Am
bassador. and a brief ir. r<>:irial talk
with the Brit sii Prime Minister. Lloyd
George did not meet the Germans.
Lloyd Georgi bad notified the Elys?e
Palace that 1 -.<- would like to call on
resident Millerand, but Mi'lerand had
an engagement and suggested nr. hour
'or meeting which happened to be the
? - when the Prime Minister was cor.-.
ing with Poincare. It was sa-.d by
British delegation that Lloyd
e-jrg'e did not call at the Elys?e Palace,
s custom requires an invitation. The
fifficia! explanation was that the proto?
col provides for visits from the heads
of foreign states only upon invitation
of the President.
Britons Show Disappointment
British circles do not conceal their
disappointment over the failure o!'
Lloyd George to meet President
tfillerand. However, he received Pre?
mier Theunis and Foreign Minister
'aspar, and also saw M. de Lasteyrie,
who is ? lated for Minister of Finance
n tl <? Poincare Cabinet, concerning
the central international corporation
'ifficiully adopted by the Cannes con
ference, to which Poincare is said to
M. Poincare will call on President
Millerand at 2 o'clock Sunday after?
noon and make official announcement
of the personnel of his Cabinet.
Alsace-Lorraine, for the first time
since 1870, will be administered, so far
?is justice is concerned, under the Mi'i
? stry of Justice at Pari-, M. Poincare
iiaving decided that the redeemed prov?
inces henceforth shall be treated like
he old department, eliminating the
German laws and court:-' code. The
elimination of two ministries and four
uider-secretarics of state is expected
tu prove ;-. saving to the French budget
, if 7,000,000 francs.
: M. Poincare has been meeting with
\ unexpected difficulties in the formation
\ of his Cabinet, but these are of a
Ipolitieal character, as the majorities in
the Chamber and the Senate are fa?
vorable to Poincare's foreign policy of
?L,-.?.'-r application of the Versailles
'("Tea-* and sterner enforcement of
nethods toward Germany.
fferriot Refuses Place
M. Hcrriot, Mayor of Lyons and
leader of the Radicul party, refused
to enter the Cabinet, saying that he
thought, in view of the parliamentary
situation, the place of a minority
Deputy was not on the ministerial
bench. To this M. Poincare replied
that owing to the seriousness of the
situation he intended to form a Cab?
inet which would represent national
inion, Bimilar to the war cabinets.
M. Manoury, the new Minister of the
Interior, has refrained from becoming
closely identified with any croup in the
Chamber. The bloc of National Con
lervatives, controlling 19t> votes, which
is expected to he the backbone of Poin?

MANCHESTER, England, Jan 14.??
The Earl of Derby, former British Am

1 not to force a genera' election in the
. present crisis in British affairs. He
indicated that when an election did
' come, it wouid lind the Conservatives
; and Liberals united behind Lloyd
"I think that we should retain Lloyd
George's services at the head of the
goyernment if possible," he said. "We
want a definite policy of economy and
retrenchment. Let both the Conserva?
tives and Liberals subscribe to that
Mid you will get a link which wi.l send
us into the next fight united."
Lord Derby expressed his conviction
that Lloyd Gev.'ge had not decided to
call a new election, but urged him not
to reach any concusi?n on this subject
yet. He pointed out that there were
many reasons why no change should
be made now, among them the un?
settled relations between Great Britain
and France, the Washington discus?
sions and the Irish settlement.

To the Grocers and Consumers of
Greater New York and Vicinity:
WE WISH to announce that because of lower costs of labor, fiou;
and other bread-msking materials, we find it possible to make a
substantial reduction in the price of the different sizes 'and
varieties of WARD'S BREAD.
Effective On and After Tomorrow
Monday, January 16th
You will agree with us, we are sure, that the public at this time, hear?
ing of wage r?ductions and not'ng the trend of lower prices on all bread
making materials, is naturally looking for lower bread prices, and is jus?
tified in expecting them; although, not expecting, we hope, to have us sell
our product at a less as some concerns are at the present time doing?
making up the loss on bread bv the sales on other articles, aid using bread
as a bait for trade. This practice we cannot follow for obvious reasons.
Our policy is, and alwavs has been, to keep faith with the public in
giving as large a measure of our product in return for the money as the
cost of the product allows, plus a living profit for ourselves. And a like
policy in selling goods is, of course, the policy of every upright and suc?
cessful dealer. We are glad, then, at this time to be able to pass to the
public through the grocer a fair reduction in the price of WARD'S
BREAD. We believe, at the lower price, consumers of WARD'S
BREAD will be eating more of it, and that our sales will greatly increase.
As a grocer, you do not have to be told that your biggest sales are
always on staples whi-m give the most food value for the money, and you
well know there isn't an item that you sell that gives you a greater daily
turnover, or in other words, as many opportunities for profit, though it
be a small profit, or that gives the buyer more real food for the money
than WARD'S BREAD.
As a consumer you know that bread is food absolutely without waste.
Every crumb of it is nutritious and it is ready for the table without fur?
ther preparation or expense of time or fuel for cooking. You do not have
to be reminded, we are sure, of the high quality of all varieties of
WARD'S BREAD, of its freshness or uniformity, nor of the enviable
reputation it has built up. Neither do you have to be reminded of the
cleanliness which prevails in all our bakeries, nor of the wonderful con?
trol laboratories operated, where all flour and other materials are
analyzed and tested for purity and quality before they are admitted for
use. The quality, purity and cleanliness of WARD'S BREAD are per?
manent traits. We safeguard them most carefully, and at whatever
price the bread is sold there is no skimping on that quality or lowering
of the standard of purity and cleanliness.
It is our policy, and always has been, to keep faith with the public on
these points, just as it has been our policy to sell at fair prices, to the
grocer, that he may sell at fair prices to the public, and through oft re?
peated sales make a fair profit for himself. What is to the public interest
is to the mutual interest of every grocer and ourselves.
Therefore, further reductions will be made as soon as new conditions
justify such action.
