Supervision of Foe Industry jnduslria! and Economic Commission Starts Func tioning in Rhineland to Enforce War Payments France to Dominate Germans for Many Years Must Run Factories as Their Conquerors Dictate AVio York Tribnv.fi Special Cabla Service (Cop.vrl.ht. 1.19, New YorK Trlbuno Inc.) COBLENZ, May 16. ? Far-sightod Germ.n industrial magnates have be Kun to wax a trifle uneasy over the future activities of tho Interallied Industrial and Econoiuic Commission, which is beginning to flinction throughout the occupied Rhineland, with headquarters at Coblenz. In quiries regarding the commission's in tentions and powers are being dis creetly made of American military of? ficials. Available official information shows that the commission is here to aid the tiormans to reestablish the Rhineland's great industrial nctwork in order that they may resume their normal oepra tion. employing the maximum of labor, payin ga livinj? wagc, etc. However. it is said that the.Germans have been advised that the commission will see that thc factories serve as a g.arantee that France gets the in demnity prescrihed by the peace treaty, and that the "sentence of servitudo" will endure from five to ' fifteen years. Like Small Merchant The manufacturers in the territory i occupied at present by American, Bel gian, French and British troops ar in the exact position of a small merchant who linds himself indebted through bad management to a rich man, who in turn worrics somewhat about the small mcrchant's ability to pay. ? In brder to protect himself, there? fore, the rich merchant steps forward with a helping hand to enable the small merchant to reorgnnizo his af? fairs and begin again. Thus tho rich man eventually gcts paid, and the poor man finds himself in a healthy financial state. With France and Belgium this is especially the case. With the aid of the other Allies they represent the rich man, and the Rhineland manu? facturers find themselves in the posi? tion of the poor merchant. They are going to work for France, but they will flourish on full protit3. France ill Dominate With American troops soon to leave Germany and the possibility that the British will eventually leave the ad? ministration of the Rhineland to the French, it is plain that the German manufacturers will find their affairs dominatcd for many years to come by France. French officers here already dominate ,the Interallied Commission in numbers, and they mince no'words in explaining their mission. They are on the ground to collect and they in tend to do so. The Rhineland industries represent one large bird already in France'a hands. Other Germany indemnity birds are still in the bush. Austria to Substitute Franc Standard for Crown PARIS, May 16.?The Austrian gov? ernment is planning reorganization of the currency system of the country, it appears from a government report pub- j lished by the "Neues Weimer Zeitung" j of Vienna.
