PREPARER)!? SPA Eatnte Premiers to, Meet and A free n Hon Terms. Want To Be United Before Meeting German Commission. BEWMTlOa IS CHIEF ISSUE French." View More Moderate Thaa at Versailles. But Will Set Consent to Any Revision of Treaty. Paris, May 4. Premier Millerand wil! a-o tc, London next week to confer with Pavid Lloyd G sores, the British prime niiB inter, regarding financial qusstjons. It is expected an agreement will he reached upon the line of action i be adopted concerning Germany with -regard to execution of the repar ation clauses of the treaty of Ver sailles. The premiers will aleo agree on the basis of -the discu.6ion to be held with (German representatives at the Spa meeting on May 25, in line with the understanding reached by the supreme council $&n Ftemo that the allies Would not .discuss before the Germans any Questions upon which they were not in accord among themselves. r Be So Revision. The French viewpoint is that they will not discuss the principle of any clause of the -treaty and will take up with the Germans only 4 lie manner of ep plying the treaty's terms. Promi nent among the. pin n la to be taken up 5n London will be interpretation of the Vepttratrons clauses and the form in Vhich the German delegates at Spa will be told wbul the allies Insist upon. i The word "revision" will 'be exclud ed in accordance with the firm atti, tude of the French, but what practi cally amounts to a modification of the reparations clause will be discussed in the form of proposed minimum and maxim m totals of reparation French public opinion which a year ago would not accept the eventuality of : CJcrmanjr not paying for ail the damage she caused is considered now to ba prepared to take a more moder ate lew. the French people preferring a cojnerete settlement with the pros pect, of Its realisation beginning in the near future, rather than watting indefinitely for an Indefinite sum. Thus the French have been brought back to the original viewpoint of the Ameirican 1eace delegation. They probably will not accept a lower mini mum than one hundred billion marks sold, hut are likely to consent to fix ing the maximum reparation payable by Germany at 16!000,000,eo0 marks, whijph was the limit the American ex perts reported they found (Jermany able) to pay.

The financial situation and the exchange rate posi tio probably will also be discussed in Loedon. as well as the proportions of distribution of the reparations mon th creditors of Germany. Tn view of the prospects of reduced total payments, the French are un deigitood to be disposed to set forth to the allies that the British mari time losses have 1ecn largely em pcraated by increased freight rates arid that Great Britain can afford to comsent to add something to France's 5oi per cent.
