"The conference has practically done its work, and it only remains for Rus sia to give her answer, said Baron Hayashi. 'If he accepts the powers' terms the Genoa conference will be one of the successes of the world. If the Russians do not accept it will be use less to prolong the conference, and the soviet government must accept the full responsibility. "However, even -if Russia does not agree, the fact remains that the con ference has done excellent financial and economic work. Principles have been laid down which, in any case, are bound to affect Russian policy. The Russians know the views o." the civilized world now, and these will sink into, their heads, even if they do not agree- at present. Thai soviet, authorities know that Eng land Is -the only -country from -which. -they are likely to get money, and in the event of a change in the Russian re girae no Russian government - can ever complain that the allies have not shown great moderation."

Bent and wrinkled women and old men 250 of them, and most of them poor knelt in prayer to day for Richard Croker, who died recently in Ireland. Most-of them at some time in their long lives had been helped In an hour of need by the hard but often warm hearted man who ruled over Tammany Hall for many a year. . It was these poor people not politi cians, nor those of wealth and power who prayed for the repose of Crokcr's soul at "a requiem mass In the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola. There was no eulo gy, no music. It was sirrtply a low mass. After the celebrant had left the altar the old women and men gathered outside and speke tenderly of "Mr. Croker." One eld man who said Croker got him a Job when his family was about to starve, pulled from his pocket a card to show he had arranged for the Big Chief to be perpetually remembered in masses for the dead. SLATTERY BISHOP COADJUTOR OF MASS. EPISCOPAL DIOCESE Genoa, May 4 The German chancel lor, Dr. Wlrth, and the German foreign minister, Dr. Rathenau, were summoned to Premier Lloyd George's villa today and remained for several hours in con ference with the prime minister. Lord Birkenhead and Sid Edward Grigg. Both Germans and British were cncommunl cative regarding the subjects discussed, but rumors are current that plans were considered for ameliorating Germany's reparations situation. The English delegates have announced that they still adhere to the suggestion for a meeting of the signatories of the Versailles treaty either at Genoa or a neighboring city before May 31 to take under advisement measures which may be necessary respecting the German rep arations payment due dn that date, which Germany has announced inability to pay. The longer the Russians study the memorandum -on Russian reconstruction the less it sems to appeal to them. Ra- kovsky, Tchitcherin and Ldtvlnoff have expressed their surprise at some of the sections, and the divergence between the allies caused by France and Belgium holding out on article six has greatly strengthened the Russian position. - It is expected that the Russians will reply to the memorandum on Saturday ; meanwhile they are using their advan tage skilfully, Their experts are digest ing the various sections at Santa Mar- gherita, where the whole delegation is working .steadily wkh ' the; exception of Tchitcherin and Rakovsky, who came to Genoa for a short timo today. - There Is much speculation on France's position since the conference between Premier Polncare and M. Barthou. Mr. Lloyd George and the entire British del egation are still optimistic that the al lies will agree on the Russian memoran dum and that the Russians will accept in such a manner as to re-open Russian trade.
