Dr. Moore, who will be the ony Am

is understood to have been named after
he had indicated that the work would
not interfere with his duties as a mem
ber of the international court. The oth
er four powers ' represented also have
named their commissioners 'but no time
or place for the meeting of the commis
sion has been selected.
Under the arms conference resolution
the commission is to consider whether
present generally accepted warfare regu
lations are adequate to govern the use
of new agencies of war, nd to reccom
mend whatever changes are found de
sirable in International law.
The personnel is to include not more
than 'wo representatives each jor the
United States, Great Britain, France,
Italy, and Japan, to be selected not lat
er than May 6. Although nominations
of the foreign representatives are re
quired to be sent to the state department
officials decline to make public here any
01 tne names received.
It also is provided in the authorizing
resolution that the American government
arter consultation with the others will
select the time and place of meeting. Ne
gotiations on that subject have not be

The opinion of the military attaches Is

A despatch received from Tien Tsin re

Diplomatic circles here discredit the
J'spers-d. discouraged. Many of them report of Wednesday that General Wu
was killed in action. Nevertheless, they
are without definite confirmation or de

the Chinese language and distributed In
Peking today purport to give the cir
cumstances of the death of Wu, which is
declared to have occurred while fighting
at Machang.
This circular asserts that General
Chang paid a reward of 1500.000 to the
soldiers enjraged in the battle in which
Wu 'is said to have been killed. Ef

Geno. May 4 Acceptance by the Rus
sians of the powers terms will crown
the Genoa conference with success, de
clared Baron Hayashi, Japanese ambs
sador to Great Britain, in an interview
today. .
"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."

ESPIONAGE SYSTEM BY
COMMUNISTS IN FRANCE
Paris, Mav 4 Claiming to have dis
covered the existence of a highly de
vcloped espionage system organized by
communists in France for the benefit ol
the Russian soviet government, the
French police today made three) arrests
in connection with the alleged plot and
promised numerous others within a few
days.
The espionage scheme they declare in
volves 200 operatives, and has rami
fications in ilrest, Lorient, Toulon and
also at powder factories in the center
of France and arsenals in the vicinity
of Paris.
Secret documents have been stolen
from the largest powder factory in the
center of France, and they say they have
proof that regular curiers have plied be
tween espionage centers' in France and
Berlin, where documents were assembled
classified and forwarded to Moscow. -In
tensive Bolshevist propaganda, the poljce
assert, also has been carried on.
One of the men arrested is the com
munist municipal councillor of Ivry-Sur-
Sein, just outside of Paris, which is the
the site of one of the largest arsenals
in France.

Senator McOunvber. republican. North
Dakota, in charge of the measure, who
said the estimate had been prepared by
an expert wno cased nls calculation on
the fact' that Just two of the 2.000 odd
committee amendments to the measure,
have been acted on in 12 days.
I - think that after . listening to the
debate today," said Senator McCumiber,
we will have to add thirty or forty
years more to that estimate."

"We have all gone off on extraneous

and before you have considered one-
third of the bill you will be ready to
swallow all of it.
Night sessions, he added, might be
necessary.
The senate voted today on the second
of the committee amendments, rejecting
28 to 47. an amendment by Senator
Jones, democrat. New Mexico, to reduce
the roposed duty on boric acid from
1 1-2 cents apound to 3-4 of one cent

New York, May 4. 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.
