President Wilson motored to the Foreign Office with Admiral Grayson, and again earned hts large leather portfolio, while thc British Prime Min Ister, Mr. Lloyd George, had with him his dispatch case. Marshal Foch waa puffing a large cigar as he arrived, BUggestive of General Grant. The meeting was held in M. Pichon's private office, as tha large Salle de la Paix, with its huge horseshoe table, still awaits the gathering of the full delegations. The session was protract e.l, with indications that the new terms of the armistice, with their military, economic and financial phases, were receiving very full discussion. At 5 o'clock Marshal Foch and Gen? eral Weygand, M. Klotz and the va iry experts filed out of the conference room. while the members of the inter-Allied Supreme War Coun? cil Settled down to a discussion of the diplomatic questions involved in the conference programme, the tirst sub? ject being taken up being the repre gentation of the nations at the peace conferi fto .

He was followed in order pby Secretary Lansing, President Wilson ar.d the other delegates. Presi? dent Wilson stopped for an instant at the exi while a flashlight was taken. Marshal Foch himsell gave the coun cil information regarding the condi? tions under which the armistice stipu lation.-* were being carried out. After his report had been heard the council discussed the terms on which a renewal cf the armistice could be granted at the meeting to be held between the German and the Allied representatives at Treves a: January 14-15. It decided that a further and more careful exam ination ot' this subject was necessary, and put it over until Monday after? noon, after ti technical study of ihe matter has been made by the Allied military advisers this morning. Supply Pians Agreed I'pon An official communication regarding the work of the Supply and Relief Con? ference says: "At their second meeting on Janu- | ary 12 the Supreme Council of Sup? ply and Relief continued their dis? cussion as to finance. An estimate of tlie credits required in the lirst ince for countries other than Germany was agreed upon and the subject was refered to the rcpresen? tatives of the treasurics of the Asso? ciated Governments for considera? tion and report. "The council took into considera? tion the measures already in progress for the relief ot' Allied. liberated and al territories, and decided on certain action to provide and ex pedite supplies. The councillors were of the opinion that if it is expedient to provido an additional supply of food in Germany before ext harvest is gathered limited surplies are available for this pur? pose without in any way affecting t iie priority of the supply which must be Becured to the Allied, liberated and neutral countries. "The council further agreed that the supply and relief situation for Europe makes it indispensable, that German shipping should be placed at tlie disposal of the As-ociated Gov? ernments. Tho council also ennsid ered matters affecting the supply of food to prisoners of war and the re li< f of Belgium." U. S.

All outward evidences in of? ficial quartcrs point in the other di? rection. It is known that, as late os President Wilson's return from Italy he was not prepared to lay down tv ?working plan. and that he preferred to have other nians originating among the Entente delegates offered tirst. It was felt that such procedure, besides having a tactical advantage, would show desirable deference to the Euro? pean statesmen having plans to submit. At 'he same time it :s known that Mr. Wilson has selected five men con ; vith 1 American mission, rec ognized experts in international law, to draw un a tentative plan which hc could cornoare with bis own ideas.

To Follow Old Rules. It is recalled hy an international | lawyer working on the problem thwt all i projects of this sort are to a certain : extent inspired by precedent, and ! that it is always desirable to utilize what is available from the work of previous conferences which have strug- j gled to evolve plans to prevent war. Neturally, those studying the problem turn to the proceedings of the Hague conferences, particularly the second, and it probably will be found, when the present peace congress gets under way, that a great deal of the structure of that conference will be utilized. It is probable that with this will be coupled the plan of Will min J. Bryan calling for a year's investigation of disputes before a declaration of war. This latter feature is one of the very definite things that Mr. Wilson is un? derstood to have in mind. American international lawyers <iro convinced that the great battle of wits will come in the discussion of what ever inachinery is proposed to lessen the probability of war. Not all of theni believe that the results of this peace congress will make war impossible, but they are sanguine that it will make armed confliets more difficult. Their principal concern is that the structure of the agreement, whether it is called a league of nations or something else, shall not be i'ramed- like the Hague conventions, in qualifying phrascs (in popular ti rminology "loopholes") which would undermine the whole structure. Hope to Prevent Wars President Wilson and his commis sioners are working on the theory that Great Britain, France, Italy and the rest of the world want some new ina? chinery which will prevent war. Upon such a determination they are funda mentally agreed. The business o'f the conversations which begin to-day is to find a common ground upon which ..ill can unitc for such a purpose. Upon the further details the United States is | said to be unconcerned, further than j to expect fulfilment of covenants and | that details of thc work shall be in agreement with the principles already announced. lt was reported some time ?go thal the most that was hoped i'or before Mr. Wilson's return to the I'nited States is a general agreement on broad j principles. There is no reason now to change that forecast. Premier Clemenceau has appointed a legal committee of ten members under the chairmanship of Professor F. Lar naude, dean of the law faculty of the. University of Paris, as a consulting body which will act during the peace congress. All questions relative to the work of the congress which M. Clemen ceau may plan to submit will be passed upon by this committee before their tormal presentation. In outlining some of the chief ter ritorial problems before thc pee.ee con? ference the "M-itin" says that Great Britain, in addition to her colonial claims, will seek to link up her African colonies with India by means of a pro teetorate over consenting Arab statcs. After the principle of the league of netions has been discussed, according to the "Echo de Paris"'the future in ternationalization of tie.' Rhine wili be taken up Long Session la Ucldj Thc su,. .... peace congress at yestcrday's session, which lasted from :j:ii, to 6:45 o'clock, took up the question of the procedure for the coming congress sessions. The dis? cussion dwelt largely upon the number oi delegates to represent each power. The proposal in the French programme. fixing the numbers variously at five, ihree, two and one representative, ac? cording to the part played by the nation in the war, brought forth certain oh jections and the council adjourned without ratifying it. It is hoped that the council to-dav will be able to finish the discussion o'f the questions regarding the extension ot the armistice, begun yesterday, and that it perhwps will also reach an agreement on the peace conference pro gramme. If so, it is probable that. the first preparatory meeting will be held luesday afternoon by tiie plenipoten tiaries of tho five great powers thc nited States, France, Great Britain, Italy and Japan. The proceedings yesterdav were for the most part in English, which is spoken by Premier Clemenceau of France, Premier Orlando of Italy and Stephane Pichon, the French Foreign Minister. Arthur Hugh Frazicr, secre? tary of the American Embassy, acted as interpreter for President Wilson, translating the speeches that were made in French. Soul of Germany Must Change to Join League, Declares Bourgeois PARIS, Jnn. 13. Leon Bourgeois, former Premier, and thc French au , thority of a league of nations, said to-day that it had been agreed upon ' with tho French government that thc French Assoeiauon 01" a league of nations would endeavor to reach an agreement an to procedure with simi? lar associations, especialiy in Great ; Britain and the I'nited States. Thc former Premier outlined tlie following plan: "First?The issuanco, before the be? ginning of peace negotiations, of a ' solemn declaration by tho Allies fixing the fundamcntal rules of the orgr."i j zation ol a league of nations, with Ihe asaurance of the immediate observancc , of the rules among themselves. j "Second The peace treaty shal| con ; tain thc obligation of compulsory arbi ; tration and limitation of armaments. "Third Immediately after tho sign i ing of peace a universal conference I shall bc called to tix the details of a league of nations. The conference | would look into thc rights of each naticn and WOUld consider what should j ba done to a state rcsisting the do ! cisiona of the league, lt. would also I take monsnres ooncerning any state not belonging to tho league and which caused trouble by violencc. "The project foresees, ln order to compel the ?iibmission of mich a state or states, 'he constitution of an armed ; force exercialne international control land the es+ubllahment of, diplomatic, juridical mul economic measures tend ing to Isolate the n bellioua state and ; coinpellirig it to depend upon Its own ', resources. Germanv, M. Bourgeois added, would have to .ndergo not only a political revolution but also a moral one. "Her very soul has to be changed," he said. In addition. Germany must give guar nntei-s of a military character, make reparationa and punish those who had violated all laws of humanity. Until that is acconiplished Germany" must bc compelled to observe n!l the rules of international control to which other nations will have agreed volUntarily. Allies Agreed On L ea gu e Principles, Says London "Times" LONDON, .lan. 13.?"The Times" in "" 'dttorial to-day on the peace con? ference says the magnitude, number '?' ? h-iracicr of the questions to be determined make a hasty solution im practicablc. "The next stage after the Allied con? ference has agreed upon th<- terms of a preliminary peace," savs "The Times," "will be to present them to the enemy tor acceptance. Germany may be ex? pected to protest and hag'ejle over them, as she did with those of the armistice, but it wiil not be to her interest to waste much time in a vain show of struggling against the inevitable. "When Germany has agreed to and ratified tho prel'iminaries the Allies will have to consider and discuss a tlefinitc peace, and this again will have to be accepted and. ratified bv her. A long time. it is plain, must elapse be? fore all these steps ean be taken and a definite peace finally concluded. "The procedure regarding a league of nations has ihe obvious merit of furthering the dispatch of business. This particular question tills so large a place in the liopes of democracics that it must almost ccrtainly come up for consideration at onee. Upon the broad principles all thc Allies and the Americans are agreed, and the sooner they record their formal sanction of il the better." "The Daily Mail," commenting on the fact. that the league of nations is expected to have an early place in the discussion. say.s the discussion of the last month has carried the idea of a league of nations very much further. "We have," "The Daily Mail" con? tinues, "such a league now in existence in the twenty-one peoples who com? bined to 'make the world safe for <lc mocracy.' The aim of statesmenship is to adopt the machinery which this league has provided and already possesses to wider needs. There is almost universal agreement on thc diserability of that aim "Unless we start from tiiat kind of league, of from a last ing association oi' the four great powers Ameriea, Great Britain, France and Italy- we shall be unable to arrange tbe sub ordinate but important individual claims of each pcople in the right. pcr spectivc. It must coordinate tbe poli? cies of various states, and it must also bo a self-govcrning league, in absence of which indeed no future settlements are possible." World League Attacked hy Two Senators Continued from pnee I think that, if the I'nited States wants this league of nations. now is the time to impress it upon the peace confer? ence?" asked Senator McKellar. "The I'nited States ought to ask indemnity of Germany," remarked Sen? ator McKellar. "Yes, but we are not doing it," re? plied Senator Myers. "That is, not so far." The Montana Senator said he re? garded the question of what to do with tbe Kaiser as one of the first to be disposed of by the conference. "1 think the German Kaiser ought. to be execXitedj" exciaimed Senator Myers. "He has forfeite. his right to live.' He ought to be executed as a common criminal. Of course he is an uncom- . mon criminal. but bo ought to bo ex? ecuted as though be wore a common ' one and without trial, too, There is nothing to try. Al! the world kr.ows that be launched a criminal war which plunged tho nations into the greatest catastrophe and conflagration tbe world has ever known. lle waged that war ir. a way which violated every principle of international law. "J am not in favor of any soft senti mentality in dealing with the German Kaiser. The German government ought to be compelled to surrender him, and if it refuses tbe Allied armies ought. io seek him. Any government giving him asylum and refuge should know now that this cannot bo done. "The Kaiser's fortune, estimated at $250,000,000, ought to be confiscated and applied toward the war indenini ties that Germany must pay. Von Berr.storff, von Papen.von Rintelen and. other 'vons' and German moving spirits in this war, who resort.e.d to every crime and. dastardly criminnlity, should be imprisoned for life. This should be provided in tbe treaty of peace.' "Does the Senator think the Kaiser ought to be hanged Or shot '.'" asked Senator Poindexter. "I think be ought to be both hanged and shot," replied Senator Myers. The Montana Senator charactcrized von Bernstorff as "a burglar who tried to climb through the back door of the I'nited States aml eorrupt and debasc our government With Gu most dastard? ly machinations that have ever been known in this country or any other." "To my mind," said Senator Sterling, "the work of the peace conference should be to take carcHtl account of causes, responsibilities, methods and eonduct of the war, of the adjustments that will best insure against recur rence of war, and account also of the iosses sustained by pillage, by burning, by any means in violation of interna? tional law, and then to define thc boundaries oi' the new s'overeign states to bo carved out of enemy or other territory. These things done, and well done, entitlc thi: peace conference to the lasting gratitude of thc lovers of peace and justice Rvcrywhere. "My thought is: That the relations and mutual purposes of the Allied nations are such a.; themselves constitutc a perfect guarantee against war as be? tween themselves ar.d a reasonable guarantee of the peace of the ,vor!d; "That there are difitculties i;t the way of establishing a league to enforce peace which cannot at this time bc overcome; "That it is tho interest of all cmi cerned thal the peace conference should not bc burdened or delaycd by thc consideration of a constitution tor such a league; "That the definite peace which is to mark the end of the great war, and nol. a league of nations, is thc goal to which all the t.alents, learning and ex? perience of the commissioners to nego tiate peace should he directed; "That in addition to thc difficulties sure to be encountered in tlie or;,'i,ui y.ation of mich a league, it is a matter of grave doubt. whether its decisions ean ever be made effeetual agr.inst any nation not willing to abide by them; "That in the last analysis we shall have io depend on tlie friendship nnd good faith of tbe nations of the world rather than force for our guarantee of peace."

S. Refuses to Send Troops to Polish Territory Freneh Urge Bolshevik In fluenre in New Nation Be Checked; 'Temps' Asserts America Promised Its Aid PARIS, Jan. 13 (By The Associated Press). rtiquiries in official Ameri? can circl ss liere elicit the in? formation that the I'nited States has not undertaken to send troops to Po? land, as intimated by Paris newspapers. Efforts of the French press to bring to the fore the question cf the status of Entente and American troops in Russia and the advisability of sending such troop3 into Poland to check the Bolshevik advance, u. is understood, havo been without success so far. The United States, it is said, will not con sent to accept in principle or as a mil? itary policy the task of using Ameri? can forces in Polnnd at all, or in Rus? sia in larger numbers than already are employed. The "Temps" has said that America had informed the Allied governments that it was ready to send an American expeditionary corps to Poland. This force, the newspaper statcs, would be able "at least to double the support given by two Polish divisions to be sent from the Western front, and enable the Poles victoriously to resist tho Bol shevists." In undertaking to place upon thc programme of business for thc mter-Allied peace conference the sub? ject of plans for the protection of Poland from the invasion of the Bol? sheviki, the supreme council linds it? self embarrassed by the conflicting claims for recognition of the Polish National Committee in Paris, headed by R. V. Dmowski, on the one hand, and the present de facto government at Warsaw, under General Pilsudski. This government was the creation of the Polish people themselves, while the Polish National Committee has been largely supported by the Poles in Aincr ica and has among its members some of thc most eminont Polish leaders. M. Dmowski contends that tho War? saw government is not representative, because it inherits its powers from the Germans and is exclusively Social istic and popularistie. General Pil? sudski charges that tho other party is reactionary, anti-Scmitic and unaeuept able io tho people al large. The French government has refused to reeognize the Warsaw government until it reaches an agre< ment with the nat ional committee. Iu order to avoid the impression that the Entente is endeavoring t'o impose u government on Poland from the out? side, it is believed that it may be nec? essary to await the approaching: elec? tions on January 26 to demonstrate which party has behind it a majority of the Polish pet ple. One factor which may hasten action by the Entente governments, it is pointed out is the impending danger ofan attack by thc Poles upon Eastern Germany in advance of the determination of-titlc fo that section of German Poland. In discussing Sunday's meeting of the supreme inter-Allied council, the "Temps" says that while the conditions to be laid down for the renewal of the armistice between the Allies and Ger? many were thc subject of most of the discussion, thc sending of military as sistance io Poland was also taken up. In an editorial on this subject, the newspapi v says tliwt it considcrs it "indispi nsable that thc two Polish divisions now in France should be sent to Poland and be supported by a cer? tain number of Allied detachments which would be able to occupy the rail load from Danzig to Thorn thus main tainipg communications with the west." Bolsheviki Only 100 Miles From Warsaw, Muddle Continues WARSAW. Jan. 10 ' Bv Thc A io ciated Press). With Bolshevik forces only ono hundred mii i away, the po? litical muddle cont in j -; h ire. Gi m ral Pili udski, thc Polish military dictator, is apparently hesitating to 'accept the proposals of Ignace Jan Paderewski. General Pilsudski is said to fear that the pro-Bolshevists will resume street fighting if they are nol overawed. Hc is also reported to be adhering to his original contention that the present government of Poland must remain in powi r until after thc elections. The outlook seems to be serious, in view of thc arrival of Biitish and American missions, which have an? nounced that they arc unofflcial in character. lt has been made plain thal these missions will do nothing to help Poland unless a stable government is formed. This fact, however, has failed to infliience the Socialists, whose atti? tude is deprecated by their opponents, who point out that the Bolsheviki are advancing and thal the Poles musl soon be called upon to protect thc ir frontier from the Baltic Lo Rumania. Bolsh: ,'ik li.ps arc moving toward Warsaw from Vilna along the railway. They have already occupied Lida and have Bialystok as their objective. They obtain,:! seventeen locomotives in Vil? na and are said to ha\ ? been given rolling stock by Germans. Thi i ad? vance, therefore, is expected to be more rapid than it was before Vilna was eaptured, General Falkenhayn's Tenth German Army is reported to be con centrating at Bialystok for demobili i:ai ion.

Britain to Link India To Africa, Says 6Matin9 "DARIS, Jan. 12.?In outlininp: -*? some of the chief territorial problems before the peace confer? ence, the "Matin" says that Great Britain, in addition to her colonial claims, will seek to link up her African colonies with India by means of a protectorate over con senting Arab states.

No Place for Trotzky It does; not invalidate, however, Herve's main argument that the idea of seating at the same table as dele? gates both Lenine and Trotzky and Ad? miral Kolchak and General Denikine would be impossible. The ideas of the antagonistic parties in Russia are so absolutely irreconcilable, Herve noints out, that there is no possibility of their coming together. "Either Savinkoff, who sees eye to eye with Kolchak," says Herve, "will have Lenine shot, or Lenine will have Savinkoff shot; Denikine will have Trotzky hanged, or Trotzky will have Denikine hanged." PARIS, Jan. 13.- The correct date of thc British memorandum concerning Russia, which Foreign Minister Pichon answened Saturday, was January 3, DM0. (Associated Press dispatches from Paris Saturday reported the date as January 5.) The American dele? gates here were under the impression that the memorandum was dated early in December. On learning that it was dated January 3 they suggest that a copy of it may not have reached Wash? ington as rapidly as it reached Paris. Recall of American Troops From Russia Demanded by Johnson Nrw York Tribune IVanhington Bureau WASHINGTON, Jan. Ul.?-A demand for thc withdrawal of all American troops from Russia as soon as "prac ticablc" was put forward in a reso? lution introduced in thc Senate to-day by Iliram Johnson. of California.

Senator Johnson, after introducing tho resolution, read from the article of Lord Northcliffe, printed in several morning newspapers, including this ex tract: "So far as Great Britain is con cerri'ed, any attempt tc transfer fur? ther British troops to Russia will be rescnted ficrcoly by our people. We have had four and a half year.: of war and our soldiers did not cnlist for the purpose of polieing Russia. I have nc doubt. that when our army is de? mobilized an army could easily be raised in Great Britain composed of adventurous spirits wiio would go any where they were sent, but it seems to me imperative that we shouid first find out what is happening among those 150,000,000 people " "I do not assumc," said Senator Johnson, "to discuss this resolution this morning. I wish it. to lie upon the table that it may be taken up dur? ing tbe week. and i give notiee that rii-iing thc week I shall ask Lhat it be taken up and then in dutail dis? cussed^ "1 introduced this resolution because, more than a month ago, couchoc! in the most respectful languagc.

"It is obvi< us from the fact that thc government will not. because it cannot. answer an inquiry of more than ;. month ago. that .ve have no policy in Russia, and that the government of Lhe United States cannot respond to the resolution because it has not any policy at all in Russia to-day.

IO.?General Braneker, who is giving up his post as master general of personnel in the Air Min? istry to devote his t:mo to commercial aviation, in an interview in "The Daily Express," to-day asserted that a fiight across the Atlantic probably | would be accomplished in May. He added that the trip was feasible at thc present moment as there were I three or four types of airplanes avail able which are capable oi making the flight. General Braneker said the time was not far distant when airplanes would be owned and driven as automobiles are to-day. He said it probably would be necessary to establish an aerial po- : force, the duty of which would I air routes and lict be to watch ovct frontiers. British Building Airships "Thc Evening News" to-day says that it has been officially informed that thc British Admiralty is embarking on a big programme of airship construction. Airships are being built with a gas capacity of 2,500,000 cubic feet. The. aircraft will have a large lifting ca- ' pacity and will be able to make be? tween sixty and seventy miles an iiour. | They will carry crews of twenty-five ? men. Still larger airships are projected, | and flights with passengers aro pre? dicted for the near future. Several airships which will be equal in si/.e and ' capacity to the largest: Zeppelin, and which are of a similar rigid type, are being built, Primarily they are being constructed for sea work and general observation : duty for the navy. These airships, it is said, will be capable of remaining in ' the air for a week. The newspaper says a regular air- j ship mail service between England and the United States during the summer of 1920, is regarded as certain by air? ship builders. Plans Being Completed Transatlantic flights have been freely j predicted, both here and in England, ' for tlie coming spring and summer months. Tbe route most likely to be chosen is via the Azores, the longest | lap of which is 1,500 miles, between the Azores and Newfoundland. Immediately following the con- j clusion of the armistice, J. A. White- ' head, British airplane manufacturer, in i a speech, declared that a British flier would blaze the way across the Atlan- I tic this spring. Lightships and float ing aero-stations would point the ! course and render it scarcely moro hazardous than the present cross channel flight, he said.
