SECURES GERMAN PAYMENTS? United States Has $415,000,000 In Claims Outstanding. Might Simply Tax This Prop erty Instead of Returning It. Washington, April 10. An account ing of the $350, 000,000 worth ot enemy property held by the govern ment was given the senate today in a report, the first compiled since Feb ruary. 1919, filed by Alien Troperty Custodian Thomas vV.

Discussing the 1416.000.000 of American claims against Germany, Mr. Miller recalled he terms of the Knox-Porter peace resolution indicat ing that no disposition should be made of enemy property held by the United States until the German gov ernment had satisfied American claims. He said that congress must evolve some plan whereby claims against Germany may be legally ad judicated. "There are several classes of claims against Germany," Mr. Miller said, "as, for instance, those of Americans whose cash was seized by the German custodian, and who are now being of fered the return of their money at the depreciated value of the mark, -which today is valued at one-third of a cent for each mark. This proposition amounts to practical confiscation on the part of the German government. There are also claims on file growing out of submarine sinkings previous to April b, 11T. "If the German property were re turned today without any condition the tax laws in force in Germany won id require lierman nationals or other people under the jurisdiction of the German government whose prop erty was returned to them, to give up in taxes to the German government a major portion of the funds returned. "It has been suggested that the amount of money which the German government would realize from such taxation, might form the basis of a fund in America for satisfying claims of Americans against Germany." Mr Miller's report gives the details of about 33.000 active trusts repre senting property in every state and territory consisting of industrial plants, steamship lines, banks, land and cattle companiea, salmon fac tories, gold and silvar mines and thou sands of parcels of real estate and se curities.
