The meeting was held in M. Pichon's

of the armistice, with their military,
economic and financial phases, were

Marshal Foch himsell gave the coun

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

and put it over until Monday after?

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

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
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

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
"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

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
"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
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

"That it is tho interest of all cmi
cerned thal the peace conference

thc consideration of a constitution tor

"That the definite peace which is to

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

itary policy the task of using Ameri?

The "Temps" has said that America
had informed the Allied governments
that it was ready to send an American
expeditionary corps to Poland. This

given by two Polish divisions to be sent
from the Western front, and enable the
Poles victoriously to resist tho Bol
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."

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

It does; not invalidate, however,
Herve's main argument that the idea

of Lord Northcliffe, printed in several
morning newspapers, including this ex
"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

"1 introduced this resolution because,
more than a month ago, couchoc! in the
most respectful languagc. I introduced
a prcfatory resolution, which was re?
ferred lo th .? Foreign Relations Com?
mittee, a resolution whicli merely
begged that we be informed concern?
ing our policy in Russia. That reso?
lution has la en b ittlfd up in the For?
eign Relations Committee, and, there?
fore, 1 ask that this resolution lie
upon the table, in ord.ir that it may be
taken up with very little delay.
"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. We are
neither ono nor the cther; we are
i either intorvening in sufficient force
to lie of coni'equence, nor are we get?

upon it."

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 ?
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.
