This left the way clear for a straight division, and the figures came upon the press and spectators and the Dail Eireann with some surprise. The net result is twofold. The country will have an opportunity of influencing th various representa tives between now and January' 3, and such portions of the country as are doubtful may. it N expected by some judges. influ-mv-l in favor of the treaty I the ini'r s.-ion that the fig urs rpivs. nt a vote in Its faor. When the Question was nut. it was !m- kine Childers, Austin Stackj Charles Bur gess, and their active supporters all de sired to keep the Dail sitting, while1 Ar thur Griffith, Michael Collins, Eamonn J. Duggan, Professor John. MacNeill and the advocates of the treaty were equally anxious to afford an opportunity to all members for a breathing space, of inter course with their constituents, who. as freely admitted throughout the debates, largely support the treaty. Division Not Strictly on Party Lines. The division followed almost, but not quite, strict party lines, for there were some members who looked solely to the question . of convenience. There are many members of the parliament who have given no sign up to the present how they intend to vote on the main ques tion, and adjournment accords them an opportunity of taj' B sides without any obvious abandonment, of their neutrality. When the tinal decision or. the treaty is actually taken, the numbers may be much eloper than the adjournment fl tires. The amendment in favcr of con tinuous sittings was1 first put verbally and a show of ' hands taken. The result was challenged on the ground that a motion must be in writing: and the vote should be by roll call. The secretary read in Gaelic the names of the mem bers by constituencies, received their answer and made the announcement in Gaelic for and against the amendment. Five Other Robbers Were Put to Flight by Heroic Youth in a New York Real Estate Office. . New York, Dec. 22. One automobile bandit was slain and a second seriously wounded in a pistol fight that followed an attempt late today to loot the offices of a real estate firm in West Sixty-third street, near Broadway.

( By The A Pf) The Clare county council, the con stituency of Eamonn De Valera, today voted 17 to r in favor of the treaty be. tween Ireland and Great Britain and re quiting Mr. De Valera to upe his in fluence for the maintenance of national unity. The resolution admitted that there were erave objections to the treaty but dec'ared that there was no rational al ternative to its acceptance.- "P.ejection of the treaty," the reso lution added, "would be almost certain to Involve us in a war of annihilation, because our people will be divided, and because world opinion, instead of being with us, as at present, will be against us." Cciej- of the resolution were sent to Mr. De Valera and the other Care representatives. Paris. Dec. 22 (By the A. P.). The council of ambassadors has granted per mission to Germany to retain until March 31 three hundred Diesel encrines which have been the stibject of allied controversy since the armistice. This is the third postponement of final decision on a matter in which American business Interests aremuch concerned. The ensines, admitted by the allied ex perts to be the finest airplane engines in existence today, were manufactured by Germany for her air service, but had not been placed in use when the armistice was signed. The French have urged the destruction of the engines on the ground that Ger many could not be trusted to put them to commercial use, but would retain them as potential war material. American and British interests have disputed this point of view on the theory that it is foolish to destroy valuabl ecommercial material which is hard to replace without great cost. In the course of its inquiry into the matter the council has' been informed that Germany has secretly manufactured additional Diesel engines since the armis tice. This would be in direct violation of the Versailles treaty, and the French point to this as proof that Germany can not .be trusted to put the eng'nes to legiti mate uses. It is further explained that retention of these engines by Germany, even for commercial purposes, would give Germany's commercial air service a vast advantage over all other sen-ices in Eu rope. In the meantime the engines are lying iaie unaer allied supervision while Amer ican interests are urging the'ir sale to the highest bidder.

According to a despatch to int Press Association from Pnb!;n extraordinary scenes occurred in the Dail Eireann over the adjournment motion. A reference hy Arthur Griffith to the length of Marv MacSwiney's sneech. brought Miss MacSwtoey to her feet with a tearful rem-k, "for s?v-cnty-four days I sat through Brixton (meaning Briston prison), and I think I have a right to speak for the honor of my nation." Another incident occurred when the Countess Mar!-"Vcz referred to Michael Colll-ns as having faced Premier Lloyd Genrpe night after night until Mr. Col lins was worn o".t and wearv. To this, according to the Press Apsociation Mr. fnllins retorted: "I was never worn out and wearv." "Well, he admitted that he was some what befogged." retorted the countess. "I did not." shouted Mr. Collins at tlie top of his vol-'e. T!-e Press Association snys a veritable balie of voices fallowed the evehamge, but that ultimately Countess Markiewicz apologized to Mr. Collins.

"Our directors," he says, "wish me to say to you that your wages for the coming sea son are not to be reduced." He speaks of "an outstanding obsta cle to which we would call your atten tion and which threatens the mainte nance of thP present standard of wages In the American Woolen Company ; the competition of certain mills in other states than Massachusetts where hours. i are longer than those in the American Woolen Company, and where wages are less. This must occur to you as an un fair competition, and one that affects you directly." Washington, Dec. 22 (Ey the A. P.) Great Britain's plea that the submarine be banished from the seven eeas was presented to the arms conference today. out it received no support from any oth er power. In turn, the spokesmen of France. Italy and Japan replied that they re garded submarines, when properly em ployed, as a legitimate and valuable arm of naval strength, and were unprepared to see them abolished. The American delegates took no final stand on the question, but suggested that the conference turn its efforts to ward such a revision of international practices as would prevent a repetition of the ruthless submarine methods of the world war. A further exchange of views on the British proposal will take place tomor row unless France, whose representa tives again are awaiting instructions from their premier. Is preparpd to go. ahead with the delayed presentation of estimates for auxiliary craft she desires to keep under the naval reduction pro gram. Today's discussions took place behind the closed doors of the committee room. but the British asked that their indict ment of the submarine h made public, and Indicated that they probably would carry their fight later to an open ses sion of the conference. They apparent ly do not hope to succe-cd. however, lfter today's expression of views, and are planning to Join in the move for an understanding to restrict the operations of underwater craft in future wars. Announcement of the French that they were unprepared to present figur-'S to day as to their auxiliary tonnage re quirements caused general surprise In conference circles. Before the commit tee meeting they had indicated that their estimates were ready, but Inter It be came apparent that ervhle exchanges of an important nature wer in proirrcss be tween Washington and Premier Br:.md. In these exchanges Secretary Hughes joined as the conference chairman, re ceiving word of the latest desires of the French premier In a msesage from Am bassador Harvey at London. The nature of the exchanges was not revealed, but cons'.derab'e significance was attached to a news dispatch from abroad saving that M. Briand felt be mtist consult with the French cabinet before making a definite answer to the message from "Washington. That devel opment generally was accented as great ly diminishing the possibility of an agreement on auxiliary craft for sev. eral days, and some of those In confer ence circles professed to see a chance that some new issue ha1 arisen which might aealn obscure some of the major plans of the conference. "While the naval problems were In the C. V. FLAGMAN FOUND FROZEN TO DEATH place of prominence during: all of the day's negotiations, the delegates found tinv. to give Increasing attention to th discussion in American official quarter! over interpretation of the new four power treaty. They weighe-1 the possible effect of the difference of vkw between President Harding and the American delegates, and watched developments in the senate, anhere a group 1s organizing to oppose ratification of the pact. Meantime the Japanese announced they had prepared to present at the next meeting of the far eastern committee, now txpectel to be held next week, a statement in opposition to China's re quest for abrogation of the agreement! that resulted from the "twenty-one de mands." No further Instructions came from Tokio to permit resumption of the Shantung necotiat'ons and It was indi cated that the naval discussions would continue to occupy th major attention of the delegates until after Christmas. The case of Great Britain against the submarine was presented to the commit tee toay bv Lord Lee. chief of the Brit ish admiralty, who declared underwater craft not only outraged all consecra tions of humanity but by illegitimate methods jeopardized the national life of the British Isles. As a defensive wea pon, he argued, the submarine had proved inefficient except In a limited war. Albert Sarrant. Senator Sohanzcr snj Vice Foreign M!nister Hanihara. speak ing respectively for France, T'aly and Japan, re'lied that although submarines must be held more closely within the practices of humane varfare. their aboli tion would remove an Important element of national security. They all express ed warm appreciation of the presenta tion of the case by Lord Lee. but Indi cated they could not agree with h'm as to the submarine's defensive value. F.r the United States, ?ecrear Hughes sucrgeKtfl that the one note ol unanimity app.-rent among all the pow ers was In relation to such restriction as would remove the ahhorrent feature of submarine warfaje in the world war. Tie read a report by a sub-committee of the American advisory committee recom mending retention of under surface warships under proper regulation, and proposed that attention be given to the possibility of brlnglne the submarine mirations atranst merchant re-sets with in the well-established principles of seereh and seizure unier International law. As an alternative, the secretary sug gested that the conference nrght eveti consider whether use of submarine against merchant shinning i!der aTiy circumstances should be forhi-lden.
