The financial clauses concern tho gold
reserve of the Reichsbank and thc is?
sue of mom>y by Germany. Marshal
Foch. when hc meets the German ar?
mistice delegates, will make suggestions
regarding the security of government
monetary deposits and thc means of
issuing bank notes. Guarantees will be
required reytarding any removal of the
Beichsbank's gold from Berlin, in view
of Bolshevik uctivities.
Xo question haa been raised regard?
ing the occupation of German ports by
the Allies, as had been reported.
Representation Question Up
The representation of tho various
nations in thc inter-Allicd conference,
althousrh virtually arranged, as shown
in the unofficisl list that has been pub?
lished, still is subject to revision. To
nvoid humiliation to any nation the
representation of which it may bo
found advisable to reduce tho supreme
council has refrained from officially
making pubiic the tentative list.
lt is possible that some effort will
he made by nations not entirely satis?
fied with the number of delegates as
signed them in the unofflcial list to
secure some amendment, but it is said
that strong reasons must bc adduced
to secure any sucli change.
Inasmucb as no issue before the con?
ference will be decided by vottng, but
only by unanimous action, which will
be requisite to secure the final adop
tion of any plan or project, the large
number of British delegates resulting
from the decision to allow colonial
representation has not actua'.ly in?
creased Great Britain's strength. At
the same time, it is believed, because
of the similarity of views held by the
Americans. Canadians, Australians and
New Zcalanders, for instance, their
presence would add moral strength to
the American plans.
An cxplanation of the allowance of
three delegates to Bra/.il. while Bel
prlam and Greece get two and Portugal
one, is the fact that Brazil not only j
gave most valuable serviee in the war \
in affording naval protection against
German raiders in the South Atlantic
trade routes and the east coast ot
South America. but that she represents
the South American continent in the
ranks of the belligerents.
Thc matter of Russia's representa?
tion has not finally been decided. M.
Sazonoff. former Russian Foreign
Minister, is now on his way to Paris,
but no decision has been made as to
whether he will be received, or, if re?
ceive*!, in what capacity.
The Supreme War Council has been
handling the Russian-Polish subject
pinperly thus far, though it has been
n fruitful matter of disucssion in the
various exchanges.
There i.s no change of policy indi?
cated in the case of either Russia or
Poland, and it is stated as quite cer?
tain that no American troops will be
sent to Poland at this stage at least.
Jn connection with the armistice ex?
tension, provision has been made for
the opening up of water and rail facili?
ties for the transportation of troops
and supplies into Poland, which the
Germans have been trying to obstruct,
but so far as troops are concerned
this applies only to Polish troops who
havo been in the Entente ranks on the
W'-stern front.
Conference Meets Saturday
It was agreed yesterday to hold the
next meeting of the Supreme War
Council on Wednesday at 10:30 o'clock
and that the first full session of the
peace conference will take place on
Saturday, January 18, at 11:30 p. m., at
the Foreign Office.
The tirst question to come up before
the actual conference will bc that of
the proposed league of nations, and
it was made known that it had been
planaod for the conference to devote
twelv* hours daily to this work if nec
essaor until it is on the way to com?
pletion. There is some reason for
believing that the first plans for the
structure of a league of nations to be
laid before the conference probably
will be somewh?t composite, reprc
uentative of opinion on the part of the
American, British and French states- :
men who have been discussing the
subject. It will not purport to be a i
finished product, but is intended to '.
serve as a starting point for develop- ;
ment. !

ROME, Jan. 13 (By The Associated
Press).? The recent speech of Leonardo
Bissolati in Milan, in which thc former
Cabinet minister expressed thc opinion
that Italy should not claim the Bren
ner Pass in the Tyrol, or Dalmatia, has
caused an outburst of indignation by
virtually the entire Italian press. The
utterance has caused thc publication
of a document setting fprth the claims
Itniy should make at thc peace con?
ference, which was drafted in April,
1M7, by Senator Leopoldo Franchetti
and signed by S.000 persons, Senators
and Deputies of all the parties, includ?
ing followers of Signnr Bissolati, So?
cialists. Clericals, Radicals and others,
and which was presented to the Pre?
Only three copies of the document
are in existence. In it thc Italian
claims are set forth as follows:
In Europe? The annexation of the ;
Irridentist lands- namely, the Upper
Adige, the Trentino, Gorizia, Trieste,
Istria, Fiume and Dalmatia; possession
of the natural boundaries, with a
strong strategical frontier on the Aus
tio-IIungarian side.
In the Adriatic ? Exclusivc Italian
domination, with freedom of navigation
for all for commercial purposes, and
with the cession to thc peoples east
of the Adratic of the outlcts to the
sea necessary to their commerce.
There was also stipulated the right
of Italy to construct a railway which
would unite the port of Avlona with
the Macedonian Railway. In Africa
there was claimed renewal of thc
recognition by England of the protocols
signed in 1891 and 1894; the cession
by France of the small possessions of
DHbouti (French Somaliland); in
Libya, thc rectification of the Italian
boundaries of East and West Libya;
in the Red Sea, possession of the
Farsan Islands; in Asia and the East?

Italy of continental Asia Minor, with
all its ports on the coast of the Aegean

"'"Pyright, 1910. New York Tribimo Inc.)
PARIS, Jan. 14.?Nothing connected
with the pence congress has struck the
French imngination more than the
manner in which the British Empire
entered into the great council of the
world. Nol only is Britain represented
hy four directly appointed delegates,
but each of her daughter states?Can?
ada, Newfoundlond, Australia, New
Zc-aland, South Africa and India?-is
also present in thc person of a directly
appointed commissioner or spokesman.
For the first time thc British Em
pire stands revealed ns a veritablo I
league cf nations in itself. Just ns
that glittering assembiy of t'r.e leaders ]
of Germany in (ho Hall of Mirrors in i
Versailles in 1S70 marked the climax i
of victory for the Prtissians and the
welding together of all their vassal
states into one living menace to the ?
peace of the world. so, as the average]
Frenchman sces it, this congress of,
Paris has already recorded the first
definite and visible steps of the British j
Empire toward a real federation of its
far-flung units, that, with the cooper?
ation of America and of France, shall
largoly assure the peace of the world.
Britain Mystery to French
Exactly what the term British Em?
pire means has always been a mys- '
tery to most Fronchmen. I have met j
many educated men here during the <
last few years who were fully con-!
vinced that Canada, Australia and In- j
dia, for instance, were compelled to '
pay heavy annual tribute to England,'
and refused to believe that the fact
was quite otherwise. I
They preferred to predict that. be?
fore many years Canada and Australia
both would declare their independence
and "shake off the British yoke." The
presence here of virtually separate and
independent delegations from India,
Australia, Canada and other "colonies."
each a "daughter in her mother's
house, but mistress in her own," dis
pelled many French illusions and has i
thrown a suggestive light upon thc
way in which the British translate the j
word democracy.
Historically speaking, this is the first I
time India and the British overseas i
dominions have been off'.cialiy repre-!
sented by their own delegates at ai
meeting in a foreign capital.
One of the first duties of the peaco I
conference will be to decide the extent :
of the representation each nation shall
have in the deliberations. I am be- !
traying no secret in stating, on the
best of authority, it is the view of the ;
British government that the represen- !
tatives of the great sclf-governing de- !
pendencies shall be admitted as full '
members of the conference to voice, j
through their own spokesmen, the opin
ions of the peoples they represent.
Australia's Interests Vital
Thus Australia is directly and vitally
interested in insuring that Xew Guin
ea, Samoa and other South Pacific
islands shall under no eircumstances
he returned to Germany for use as
coaJing station?. or bases for subma?
rines to threaten. the commonwealth.
Similarly South Africa is entitled to
a preponderating voice regarding the
disposition of what formerly was
known as German West Africa, while
India has strong claims to participate
in all decisions affecting Persia, Meso
potamia and other regions whence her
safety may be. threatened.
As a general principle thc predomi
nating voices in the peace conference
will be those of the five great powers_
America, France, Great Britain, Italy
and Japan?who will each have five
Curiously enough, the names of the
five British delegates havo not yet been
announced officially. It is very prob?
able, however. although the actual
number of voting delegates present at
any one session of the congress will
always be the same, that the team will
not always be composed of the. same
men. It is probable, for instance, when
a purely commercial question arises
for settlement that the delegates who
are specialists, say, in ethnological or
international and legal questions, will
retire to give room for others who
have made a study of trade questions.
Question of Rank in Doubt
Just what representation will be
tfiven to the British daughter states
has not yet been settled, but it is be?
lieved that they will rank much thc
same as Belgium. French pubiic opin?
ion generally indorses fully thc action
taken by Great Britain in this regard.
lt i.s renlized that the action of the
overseas dominions in coming to the
aid of civilization in the great war
was inspired by the highest and most
idealistic motives, and no action the
British have taken could have given
the French more pleasure than that
which prcvided representation for
these dominions.
The appointment of Sir P. Sinha, the
fifst native Indian to hold a post in
the British Cabinet, ns Under Secre?
tary for India, with a seat in that
most sacred of racial stronirholds, the
House of Lords, is re>fcardcd here as
one of the most revolutionary things
the British rulers have dono for many
years, and it is huiled as a guarantee
of great thinjrs in the future.

I Hender&on Leaves
For Paris to Begin
Labor Con ferenees
Will Art Upon Proposal of
Belgian Party; II o 1 d
Up International Socialist
Congress for Decision
.Vciti l'orfc Tribune
Special Cable Service
LONDON, Jan. 14.- Arthur Hender-1
son left for Paris to-day to confer,
with Belgian and French Socialists re
garding the proposed Socialist Labor
Conference. li was stated at. Labor]
party headquarters that any interna
tional congress before February 1 was I
out of the question. A proposal just ;
made by the Belgian Labor party and J
Trade Union Committee will be the >
basis of Henderson's conference in i
Paris, and until a decision is reached '<
there the whole congress project will :
remain at a standstill.
The Belgians resolved unanimously |
"to request the executive committee of i
the Internationale to convene at Brus
sels at the. earllest nossible date to
meet members of the International So- i
cialist Bureau, representing thc prole?
tariat of the Allied powers, in order j
to discuss under what conditions they <
propose to set. to work to reestablish |
the Socialist Internationale." Thus;
there is almost certain to be a meeting i
of thc International Socialist Bur?au,
or such part of it as may bc found J
among the Allied powers, before any?
thing is done to bring the international j
congress idea to a head.
It has been bclieved here for some
time that the Belgians were hesitant
about meeting Germans at an interna-1
tional congress. This aversion may be
back of their prcsent action. If the ?
Belgian proposal is adopted i;i the
conference with Mr. Henderson at
Paris, it will mean that the congress, if j
held, will be a meeting of the Interna-1
tional Socialist organization virtually;
as it stood before the war, possibly j
excepting the Germans, and not an '
intern. tional Socialist labor conference
along new lir.es.
It appears now to be certain that no !
congress of the type which Henderson
has in mind will convene at Lausanne, j
owing to the strcnuous objection of the j
cantonal officials at Lausanne. It may i
bc held at Berne or Geneva.
British Officer Accused
Of Murder of Comrade
LONDOX', Jan. 14. - A sensation was
caused in military circles to-day when
it. was learned that Lieutenant Colonel
Norman Cecil Ruthorfnrd had been ar?
rested charged with the wilful murder
of Major Miles Charles Seton, of Mel
bourne. The murder occurred at tho
residence of Major Seton's cousin,
Malcolm Cotter Seton, secretary of thc
Judicial and Public Department of the
Indian Office, last night.
Colonel Ruthorford, according to thc
police, was seen to enter thc Seton
house. Thc police' were sent for a
few minutes later, nnd when they ar?
rived they found Major Seton 'dead
with three bullet wounds in his body.

More Guns, Higher
Tax, Seen by Borah
In a World League
Only 12 Senators Remain
for ttebate When Peace
Plan Is Attacked; Shaf
roth Defends Proposal
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.?Increased
armaments, higher taxes and militar
ism of which only Prussia ever has
drer.med are necessities of the League
to Enforce Peace, Senator Borah told
tho Senate to-tlay. The doctrine of
"kill them off" will be applied rigor
ously to any revolutionaries, he de?
clared, no matter how just their cause
and no matter what they may bo fight?
ing for.
Thc Idaho Senator said two forms of
the league had been proposed, ono ad
vocated by President Wilson in his
Rome speech, based on the idea of or
ganizing the moral forces of thc world !
ln support of permanent peace and
the .other based on the organization
of tho military forces of the world.
As to the possibility of a league
based on the organization of morul ;
forces, Mr. Borah waved his hands in j
despair of being able to accomplish
anything. The military force idea.
hc said. drcatens the "most menacing
consequences to thc people of thc
"Dcpends Upon Force"
"It is now conceded," hc said, "that
the distinguishing feature of this
league over all others is that it de
pends upon force; the fundamental
principle upon which it rests is that
of reprcssion.
"Naturally, the tirst question that a
man would ask would bc, 'How are you
going to raise your armies to sustain
this vast military programme of this
league based unorv force?' Would the
citizens of the United States voluntcer
to enter the army for thc purpose of
settling dilliculties in the Balkans, for !
instance? ln other words, we would;
have conscription in time of peace.
"We yielded to the principle of con- i
scription in the great emergeney j
through which we have just passed, but j
it is ccrtainly of extraordinary mo- j
ment tO the people of this country tc j
have presented to them the question of j
conscription in time of peace in order j
to secure a force with which to sustain j
thc league which is proposed."
He said that beside-. conscription
such a league would necessitate the
construction of the largest navy in !
the world. Senator Borah attacked the j
appropriation of $600,000,000 for the !
eniarged naval programme.
Where Is Enemy? He Asks
"I want, if I can," he said, "to con- j
vey to tho people the fact that the j
league to enforce peace c'oes not mean
disarmament. It does not mean re- j
lieving them from taxoi or from the!
great burdens of war, but of adding to j
tncni permanently and for all time to I
During the debate, Senator France, j
of Maryland, Republican, introduced a ]
resolution proposing early withdrawal j
of American troops from Europe and '
postponement of the formation of a
league of nations until after the peace !
trouty is concluded.
Senator Shafroth declared a league j
of nations should be formed at once j
and vigorously opposed the resolution j
of Senator Knox, of Pennsylvania, Re- I
publican, proposing postponement of j
consideration of this question by thc
peaei: conference.
Retention of American troops in Rus- j
sia was advocated by Senator Thomas,
who said this was necessary to pro- !
tect military stores and to aid the I
Czecho-Slovak forces. He denied that |
war is being waged against the Boi- ?
sheviki, but said some policy to combat '
Bolshevism should be adopted.
Shafroth Speaks for League
Senator Shafroth particularly at- |
t.acked the resolution of Senator Knox. j
"There are two ways of defeating j
the plan for a league of nations," the '
Colorado Senator said, "first, by open- ?
ly opposing and voting against it; and.
second, by postponing its consideration j
