Hope for Solution of
Fiume Controversy
Now Rests on Wilson
PARIS, March 22 < By The Associated '
Press). - There is no hint yet as to the
character of the plan under eonsidera?
tion by Colonel Edward M. House for
B settlement of the Fiume problom. but
it is expected the plan will be ready in
a day or two.
The Italian dclegation has answered
,".il advancea aiming a! eatablishment
oi the eastern froritier without assign
ing Fiume to Italy by declaring that
ony such solution, even if acceptod by '
tho dciegates here. wouhl be useless,
?ince neither the Italian Parliament
nor people would r'atify such an agroe
ment for abandonment of what they
ooasidor "the indispenaable cqmpletibn
? :' the mothor country."
Hopc is exortssed in peace confer
enoe crrelos that by .the tirst of next
v "ck a plan will be presented which
wilj surmount the difficulty. President
U ilson has the whole question before
hini, and it is from him that the plan I
upon which hopc of a satisfactory
s'ttlement is based is looked for.
The action of the Italian delegation, L.
taken as a unit, amounting virtually to
nn ultimatum directcd to the Supremd!'.
Council, cHve great concern to othen.'
It has heen known for som* timej ':
that the Italian dciegates were appre
hensive that any programme adopted
by the Supreme Council which contem
nlatcd the relegation of the Italy
Jugo-Slav controversy to the leagtte
of na.tions, when it is formed, or even
its eonsideration by the Supreme Coun
cil aftcr the complction of the peace..
treaty with Germany, would seriouslv*
jeopardize Italian claims. The fea'r
!ias been cxpressed by some of the
Italian delegates that imniediately
nfter the conclusion of the German
treaty President Wilson, Premier Lloyd.
George, and perhops other leading ftg
ures in the Council, would leave Paris,
and the remaining members of the
Council would not have i'ull powers to
dcal with Italian demands. The state
of mind of the Italian public is de
elared to be such that the failure of
the Italian delegation to return from
Paris speedily with title to Fiume and
the Dalmation coastal islands might
eaaily have grave internal results, ac
cording to statements by some of the,,
Propaganda I'sed
Thus, for many weeks they have
been simply flooding other delegations
#md the oftices of foreign correspond
enta with literature to support Italian
claims. This incited the Serbian dele?
gation in Paris to very sharp re
sponses, which were given to the
press and which denounced. Italian
corrtentions as being in absolute vio
lation of President WilsoJt*s^?.'.'four
teen points" because they deny ?ece3s
to the sea to the Jugo-Siav-populatlon
in the interior.
The Italian claim is that rac'ratlly,
hiatorically and economically, the port
of Fiume and the immediate vicinity
are Italian. Tho Italians claim that
? he eastern Adriatic coast must also
go to Italy as a military measure to
.nsure protection to exposed Jtalian
i ities on the western shoTg.^of the
Adriatic. ;
The Supreme Council is called upon
indirectly, in deciding this issue, to
pasa upon the validity of secret treat
ies negotiated in London in 1915, some
of which at least are held to be at
\arianco with Mr. Wilson's "fourteen
points." The council is also embar
raased by the probable . effect of any
decision it may make in the Fiume
casc upon Greek and French claims
to the Smyrna coast. Polish claims to
I.emberg. and Polish claims to
Seek to llx War Claims
The whole question will go before
President Wilson for eonsideration
and solution. Its removal as the se
rious danger mark in the conference
proceedings is hoped for, it was said
to-night. It is expected he will pre
?ent some plan by Sunday.
A possible solution of the problem
now under eonsideration is that mili?
tary experts of the Supreme War
Council, who have discharged them
selves of German war issues, should
at once consider the Italian claims,
under instructions to present a solu
Mon in time to secure action upon
them simultaneous.ly with the dispo
sition of the German peace treaty.
One difficulty in the way is the lack
of a competent government in Aus- j
' ria with which to negotiate. Another
the distribution among the new
??tates formerly part of Austria of the
proper share of war indemnities which
? hcy must assume. In the meantime

AH Disorderc Are
Confirmcd by Travellers
Now. one has to set against this all
Lhese many signs of disintcgration and
disorder tcstified to by all travcllers,
ancther circumstance which is exciting
aqually universal attention, namely, a
return of the old arrogance, the old
defiance, the thing that puiizled the
world before the war and aroused it
during the confiict. After the period
of dejection immediately following the
defeat, the German was for a moment
i contemptible creaturc. He was
stunned. He whined where he used to
bJuster. He waa abject where -o.nce_.he
was arrqgant..
An American civilian receritly re
nirned from Vienna supplies an inter
?sting account of this transformation.
While he was in Vienna be talked with
'iermans, with correspondents coming
mt of Germany and read the pro-Ger
man Austrian papers, and was more
khd more impressed, as so many others
have been, by the fact that all Ithis |
testimoney indicated Germany did not |
rigard herself as beatcn.
lntelligent men explained to him j
that Germany got out of France be- J
cause she wished to shorten her lines; '
that she was in no way beaten mili- !
:arily, but, on the contrary, came to the
sonclusion that it was time to stop, and
therefore quit. Her economic situation
was bad, the morale low, the Bolshe
vik propaganda and.the effect of the
blockade on the civilians are held
responsible for the armistice. The
armies did not lose the war. The revo
lution and the civilian collapse behind
the lines were responsible.
Evenmore interesting andsignificant
is the testimony of this Vienna visitor
upon the question of German course
with respect to peace terms,. testimony
for which I have found much confirma
tion in Paris. A Vienna newspaper re
cently printed from its Berlin corre?
spondent, a German professor, the
frank statement that if the peace terms
are not satisfactory the Germans will
refuse to sign them, relying unon "tho
inability of the Allies to do anything.
They count upon the desire of all the
soldiers to go horae, the reluctance to
resume fighting and upon the propa?
ganda of a Bolshevik nature which they
have been trying to spread through the
troops of occupation. In his opinion
the greatest dangev of all is to be
found in the fact that the German ar?
rogance, the spirit of crooked, immoral
selfishneBs of the unrepentant sinner,
is growing in Berlin, and that a con
sciousness of her strength is increas
ing in proportion to the length of the
di.scussion between the Allies.
To quote the comment made by a
conspicuous Vienna editor, himseff a
Liberal: "You couldn't expect the Ger?
mans to go to sleep Monarchists and
wake up Republicans."
The greater the delay in making
peace the greater the danger of seri- i
ous social disturbances all over thei
world. and the longer the delay tho i
stronger Germany gets and the more j
she^ hopes to profit by our weakness.
From Berlin there comes to me a j
clear statement that German policy ?t |

many, hoping not only to cause un
rest in the Allied countries and cor
rupt the Allied armies with Bol
shevism, but also to ensure the pro
-tection of their own nroperty
through the presence of Allied
armies of occupation.
None Believe Foe
Will Fight Again
But at this point it is necessary to
emphasue another strange paradox.
The German becomes more and more
arrogant in tone and manner, but I
have yet to find anybody who has been ;
in Germany, either in the occupied dis
tiicts or heyond the Rhine, who'be-.'
lievei that the German will fight aga^ttfj
not hierely to-day or to-morrow-, but
for a vcry iong time to come. \The dis- t
integration of the army has been com
plete. In many places disrespect and i
more than disrespect is shown for (the
old officers. In calculating upon escnp
ing from the Allied terms of peace the
German is not relying upon any possi
bility of resistance. ' Moreover, all reV'';
sistance will obviously be impoSsihle,: |
because a restoratoin of the blockade
would mean immediate starvation in
Germany. ; ;
Has Germany escaped Bolshevism?,
It is a question asked of every one who ,
comes back from Germany, a question
for which no satisfying answer has yet ,
been had. There is general testimony,
to the fact that German abhorrence of,'
Bolshevism is universal, and yet there
is equally frank recognition of the
fact that many, many circumstances in
the German situation point toward a>:
?repetition of th,c Russian march toward-1
Hoover Sending Food
Every Day to Poland
And yet again in the midst of all
this testimony of confusion and disin
tegration there is equally impressive ;
testimony to the fact that in ccrtain j
direetions German organization sur- I
vived. I asked Mr. Hoover the other;
day what was being done for Poland, I
He said he was sending five trains a j
day from Dantxig to Warsaw, and when !
I asked him if the Germans were mak- '
ing this thing difiicult he laughed, and '
said, on the contrary, they were doing j
everything to facilitate this work for j
the obvious purpose of proving that if ,
they were permitted to retain Dantzig j
there would be no interference with
Polish access to the open sea and com
munication with the Western Allies.
When one thinka of the utter con- I
fusion in the railway trafric of all of
Europe and the practically complete
paralysis of Getman irailway traflic, it
is clear how great a'nu -skilful a ma
noauvre is this German facilitation of
the feeding of Polan<*,
The simple truth remains that Ger?
many now, a sat all times since August,
1914, is totally incomprehensible.
We have one week in Paris the old
German menace revitalized, and we live
under the shadow of a return of the
Prussian, and the next week we are
equally under the shadow of a German
relap.se to Bolshevism, seeming calcu
lated to become as great a menace to
Western civilization as a revitalized
Prussia, and this is only another way
of saying that. while Paris cannot make
up its mind whether Germany will be
more dangerous after reaction or after
revolution there is a never tnding
sense of a continuing greatness of the
German peril.

Sir Horacc Plunkett, who iet't yester
day for the British islcs after seven
wceks in this country, devoted largely
to studying American sentiment toward
his native land, said he found Ameri?
can opinion "quite deflnite" in this re
He reported Americans "united as

l have been coming to this country in
a'desire to see fuii jusiice a'one io the

If it is not eliminated, the Irish dif?
ficulty. Sir llorace asserted, would con
tinue .to disturb domestic politics in
the United .States, raising falso issues
and "threatening to bccome a serious
embarrassment in your foreign policy."
Sir Horace's statement follows:
"Americans are united as never he
fore_ in the forty years I hHve been
coming to this*.country in n desire
to see full justice done to the national
aspirations of Ireland. They want the
difficulty out of the way, bot.lt 011 ac
count of the vital principles involved
and the immense number of your eiti
zens of JriHh birth and blood. That
question will, if not settled, continue
to distutb your domestic j>ol it ics.
where it raises false issues and threat
ens to become .a serious embarrass
ment in your .. foreign policy. 1 have
been assured over and over again that
nothing else in all the peace prob
lems of the Allies touches America so
closely, morally and politically.
"I have been constantly asked niy
opinion as to what in these circum
stances otight to be done. I would not
help toward & settlement in Ireland
and nowhere else can satisfactory set?
tlement be reached ? if I were to set
out the terms of the solution l should
personally prefer. Moreover, there
have been political changes in Great
Britain since I left which may have
to be taken into account. So far as|
I can .iudge at this distance, the situa
tion there is giowing ripe for a tinal
effort to solve the problcm.
"My inquiries in America have re
lated ralher to the urgency than to the
manner of settlement. Of this I am
certain, the solution will be greatly
simplilied if the unanimity which 1
have observed in this country is main
tained. Whatever the President may
or may not see fit to do or say in Paris,
I feel that the moral sense of the
American people must be satisfied and l
their politics and policies freed from
false issues and embarrassment arising
from the actual state of Ireland.
"I am glad to find that on one vital
point American opinion . seems quite
definite. The plans for the partxtion
of Ireland which from time to time
find favor at Westminster would no
more satisfy American opinion than
they would be tolerated by the senti?
ment of Ireland. There may be many
splutions of the Irish question, but
there is only orie Ireland.
"When the Irish people come u>
gether, not to talk over but to work i
out a uniied Ireland, they will be faced,
as is eyery other modern country, with
;he problem of holding tho balance even
betweon the agricultural and indus
trial interests. In this task, the t'ul
lilment. of which will dispose of the
so-called Ulster difficulty, American !
opinion, sympathy and advice will al!
be helpful.

?cderal Eniployment Service
Has Established a "Hamli
eap Bureau"
The United States Eniployment Ser
'icc ijas established in Xew York what
t calls a handicap bureau for the
n.'uefit of men who are under the
landicap of advancing years. Formerly
here was a demand among employers
'or so-called new blood. The men
vho had grown old in service found
heir jobs gone and young fellows
loing. .their work. The man who
?oined ihe vyord "pep"' did a grcat deal
oward putting the older men on the
;helf. ' Whcn war came it was found
bat the older people were just as d.e
lendable, and in many instances just
is rapid, workers as the young who
lad displaced them. With the end o*
var and the return of the young man
o the ranks of job hunters the elderly
men again face the danger of having
to hunt work.
During the week ended February 1,
1919, the Federal Handicap Bureau
found permanent places for 153 men,
whosc avcrage age was fifty-one year?.
at an average weekly rate of p'ay of
$22.61. The lowest pay was S15 a week
and the highest $05. Two of the men
were past sevehty. Investigation
showed tha! the 153 men thus plaeed
had 331 denendents. and that they had
been out of* work an average of tiiirty
nine working days.
This work will be continued and
state eniployment officials will coopei
ate with the Federal labor represenU
tive. There was a time when a mati
of forty years was considered old.
Now there are plenty of young feliowp
of seventy-fivt and efghty vears who
are holding responsible positions and
have no t.hought of retiring. The older
men may not raove quite as rapidly
as their younger brothers, but they
have the advantage of experience and
ripened judgment.?Indianapolis Ncws.
