cording to me Mimes. J.ne jLiciuicro
hope to be In a position at their meeting
today, adds the Times, "to take a
definite step forward In this matter with
the concurrence of tho United States."
i The Premiers met together yesterday,
the first time since President Hard
ing's Invitation to a conference at
' Washington, and discussed tho question
ef dominion representation at such a
conference. So far as disarmament Is
concerned, the dominions arc willing to
allow the Imperial Government to de
cide what should be done, but Australia
and New Zealand especially wish to
have a voice In any decision regarding
the future of the Pacific. Canada Is not
,much concerned, as her policy, It Is
pointed out, Is practically Identical with
hat of the United States.
Denies Opposition to Parley
Baron Hnyashl, the Japanese An
bJsador, denies that thcro is any
question of opposition on tho part
of Japan to President Harding's pro
posal for a conference at Wash
ington, which, on tho contrary, ho
laid, was welcomed. Japan was quite
ready to discuss with other Powers
questions of mutual interest, including
the limitation of armaments, on which
the Japanese Government already had
expressed Its willingness to negotiate.
Japan, however, desired to know be
forehand what subjects were to bo dis-

yesterday, warned Jnpnn in the plainest

snys," that the proposal from tho
United Slates for a Pacific conference,
was made without nn ulterior motive,
and in the sole interest of the world's

shall be driven to believe that she
harbors designs Incompatible with

American alarm as to Japaneso arma
ments is justified.
"The United States like ourselves,

to get out Into the old-fashioned garden

swarmed up ngalnst tho squat bush
of flowering quince and trailed In long,
horny sprajs along the thick grass that

wandered and fell on the thlek row of
