The famous gallery of mirrors has

gilt and bronze decorations has been
placed in position on the dias where

There will be room for four hun

the left wing of the hall of mirrors,
while the right will be occupied by a

allotted to the French press.
The program of arrangements, as

of infantry and five of cavalry will
be on duty at the time of the signing
of the treaty. Republican guards in
gala uniforms will render the honors.
They will be stationed on the grand
stair case by which the plenipoten
tiaries enter the hall.
According to the Havas agency
diplomatic relations with Germany
will not be resumed immediately on
the signing of the treaty, but only af
ter its ratification. This also applies
to the admission of German subjects
into France. '
Fronting M. Clemenceau's presi

table on which the diplomatic instru
ments will be laid. It will be to this
table that each representative is call

name to the treaty and affix to it his
government seal. As there are 100
delegates, the ceremony is expected
to take at least ninety minutes.
It is yet uncertain whether M.
Clemenceau will make a speech. It is
considered as not unlikely that the
Germans will raise a last protest at
the moment of signing.
