at the Hotel IJIIimorc last niKht by Sir
H. Bablngton smith. Henry r Davison,

Ona of the llrst quaatloni asked wn
aa to the participation .f Hussi.i in the

not appear as a party or a participant
Another queatlon w.i in raimrd to
munitions. The husw r was that Ihe
money w.i to be usi d i x -luslvely for
the purpose of Stabilising exchanges;
that is preventing hills drawn on foreign
countries from depreciating. Tin mi ml
all hills that mlaht he drawn It would
include the wh at lulls and the rntton
bills n well as bills on manufacture
it haa not yai been dtcidad deflnitely
how many payment will '-over tha l an.
They are to be arranged for upon a cal

atrlptlona ara m ba made .my ona
of the hanking centies of the grOUpfl
In the ayndlcate. The money thus bald
by the designated dapoaltory Will draw
the usual interest of I per c nt . which
will ao to Rngland and France.
While the interest and principal of
the loan ara to ba payable r American
dollar at New York. It has not yet
been definitely, daeldad whether there
will not he branch citle designated
for auch purpose. It wis apparent
that thl will depend largely upon the
subscriptions. A great sum iiaid for
bot.ds by numerous investors in one sec
tion would make it advisable to nay In-
tarest and principal direct in thai lo
cality Instead of through New York
with New York check.
The syndicate which Is to handle the
great loan is well In process ..f organi
sation Already It lias been definitely
decided to have groups In Boston, I'hll-
adtiphia. Chicago, Pittsburg, tlaltlmora
and tit. 1-ouls. and perhaps In New Or
leans, Minneapolis. Omaha and several
other cities. It la Intended to have a
group In every centre of the country
where one can be organised.

to the j. P. Morgan & Co. atatament,
win serve without compensation.
It was said In the financial dlatlicti
yesterday that the personnel of Ihe New
York group would be a great surprise j
to many who have ventured to announce i
various hankers its opposed to-the Iran !
with Russia eliminated th re wa the
general expression of belief in Wall
gtreet that Kuhii. boeb & Co. would bo !
members. Alter the visit of Pierre .
Hark, Russian Minister of FlniufJ-e, to
I'arla, and then to Loudon, without ap- i
parent result there came a change In .
the attitude of many bankcra in .'. v I
York who have no love for Russia. It
waa regarded as significant yesterday j
that Jacob 11. Schlff visited the banking
house of J. P, Morgan & Co. and had
a talk with Mr. Morgan. It was also
thought to be significant that Otto H 1
Ka.hu visited the lliltmhre later In tho
evening after the statement waa glvon
oat- Mr. Kahn declined to say a word.
It could not bo told yesterday now !
soon tin- Inst payment op the loan would!

the exchange market. Several very mi
portant steps are Rrat to be taken.
It will revjulie an act of Parliament In
England and a proposition of law in
France. It waa said last night that
theae measures wOUld he rushed through
at once, hut that even with a suspension ,
of legislative rules this would require
eeveral days. Thereafter the commls-
aloners of the two countries. In all like
lihood the members of the present mis
sion, w.ll have to execute a formal
agreement with the American syndicate,
which win act through a committee
which It w ill designate For these tea-
solas no time could be gel hist night for
the completion of the tlnul formalities .
it could only be aald taht everything '
would be done a oulckly aa possible. It
waa generally Don ceded, however, that 1
November 1 would eee the Hist pay- I
ments on subscriptions.
Tho agreement announced bust night
waa reached on Saturday und Sunday
after the Governments of England and
Franco had llgnlfled their approval and
after M Hark had started for I'etro
erad, thus eliminating Russia us a
Party, The agreement had been reached
after fifteen days or confer en caa be

There Is no dount thai during the fif

enlightenment as to conditions in the

In their first dlaouaetong they held
to the idea that the American Ihveotor
