ond presumably the notiltaaiion of this
? ction was eu'o.cd to the I'anair.an rep

tha? nation to participete in this after
noon's ceremony.)
The principaf oowers and the repre
sentative of Poland, after sijn.n^ the
ratification minutes, nlso si^ned the
minutes of the ratification of the treaty
for the protection of raciai mmorities.
Prcmiers Remain fcr Ccnterence
Premiers Clemenceau, Lloyd George
nnd Nitti did not leave the Foreign
Ministry with the other Allied repre
sentatives, but remained for a confer?
ence in private.
In conformity with the peace treaty
and the annex of the league of nations
covenant. Premier Ciemcnceau has te'
egnphed Argentina. Chile, Colombia,
Denmark, Spain, Norway, Puraguay,
IIo iand, Sa.vador, S.veden, Switzer
land and Venezuela t1 at the treaty is
now effective and inviting them to
r.iembcfc>hip in the league of natio.is.
Beiore tho ceremony It was said
that after the exchan^e of ratiticn
tions Premier Clemenceau wo''ld hand
to Baron von Lersner the following
"Paris, January 10. Now that the
rrotocol provided for by the note of i
XCovember 2 1ns been 8t;nec! by qiali
fied reprcsentatives of the German
government, and in conseq"encc the
r.-tific'itions of the treaty of Versailles
lta? been deposited. the Allied and
Hssociated poweis wish to renew to
the German government their assur
ance that whiie nece3sary' renarations
i >r the sinkin<r of the German fl-'et in
?capa Flow will be exacted, V ey do
r.ot ir.tcnd tr injure the vital economic
inlerest of Germany. On this point,
by thL- letter, they confirm the declara
tfon.-. w'ich the general secretary of
the peace con'erence was cha^ged with
msklng orally to the president of t'e
German dol^raticn on D^cember 23."
Allied Declarations in Full
Tvese dec arations are as follows:
"First?The general secretary has
fccen auihorized by the Supreme Coun
cil to assure the Gern an delegation
that the Inter-AHied Commission on
Controi and the Commission on Rep
arations will conform w.th the greatest
rare to the staten ents in the note of
l>ecember 8 rel '.ttve to safeguarding
the vital economie interests of Ger?
"Second?The experts of the Allied
and as.ociated powers, believin? that
part of the infoimation on which they
icunded the r demand for 400,000 tons
of floatin~ docks, floating crane ?, tugs \
r.nd dredijers may have been inaccu- j
r te on certain points and detai'.s. I:
think they have committed an error as
concerns 80 000 tons of floating dock?
nt Hamburg. If the investi^ation to
wh'ch the Inter-Allied Commission on
Control will proceed sha 1 show tlnt
there rea ly has been an error, the A.
hed and associated powers wi 1 be pre- |
pared to reduce their demands proior- j
c ona ly in a iranner to lower them to j
300,000 tons, in round numbors, and
even below that if the rtecesity of
such rcduction shnll be demonstrat'd i
by cor.vincing arguments. But moac!
comp ete faci!it;e . s ^ou'd be accorded
to authorized Al ied and assocatel
represantatives to enable them to make
all necessary inquiries, with a v ew to
verifying the German assertions, be-'
iore any reduction from the original
demards of the protoeol can be defi
nitely admitted by the Allied and asso?
ciated powers.
Sinking Not Held Cr'minal
"Third?The Allied and associated
goverr.ments. with ie erence to the last
paragraph of the letter w. ich co^tains
the rtply, do not consider that the sole j
;;c. o. sinking the German ships at |
Soapa Fiow constitutes a crime oi war |
or which individual punishment will i
be exac ed in confo.mity with Article j
-2S oi the peace treaty.
"On the other hand, the Allied and
p.~rociatcd powers wish to P'int, out
ihat without losir.g si^ht of .ho vi.nl;
economie interests of Germany. th y
I a\e ire.-^nted a demand aor 400 000
tons on the inventory e iabllshed by
them. German experts have furn shed
de aKs, which we will verify and which j
give a smal.er figure. Consoquently I
there will eventually be deducced :rom
the 400,000 tons o fljating docks,
cranes, iu^s and drcd'ers c'.aimed by '
the Ai.i.s a tonna^e of floating docks.
which. ai'ter verifications, we will
recognize as figur.ng by mistake on
the in er-Ailied inventory and whic!i
consequently does not exist. N'everthe
ltss such deduction shall not exceed
125.000 tons.
,-ihe Allied and associated powers
r.dd .hat the 192,000 tons propesed by
;he German government, of which a
Iftti was handed over uuring t e de
liberations of the ' t?chn ca. commis
sons, mu t be delivered imme.liately.
For the ba'ance of tl e tonnage, as j
r<ha!l be determined by the commission

ex^ced thirty months for delivery of

The outstanding comment to-night on

Friday; Wilson to Call Meeting
PARTS, Jan. 10.?Formal creatfon of the league of nations, which
will be one of the ir mediate consequencss of the exchange of ratifica
tions of the Treaty of Versailles, will ta'ce place in Paris at 10:30
o'clock on the morning of Friday, January 16, the Supreme Council
decided to-day.
Ambassador Wal'ace caVed this decision of the council to Presi?
dent Wilson, so the President might issue the formal notice of the
meeting of the council of the league, to be held on the dste named.
The first meeting of the council will be caUed to order and presided
over by Loon Bourgeois, the representative of France in the council.
He will deliver a brief address. Earl Curzon, the British Foreign
Secretary, who will represent Great Britain, also will speak.
WASrHNGTON, Jr.n. 10.?A'though President Wilson will call
the tirst meeting of the league of nations. the United States wPl not be
represented because this country has not ratified the treaty. The
treaty provides that the first meeting of the league shall be called by
"the President of the United States."

Barot un Lersner saiu he had had
several vory satisfactory conference3
with Lou's Loucheur, French Minister
of Reconstruction, regarding the re
sumption of trade relations between
Germany and France, and ndded that
he hoped the European nations wo>k
ing together would solve the groat
econom'c prob'ems. The most thorny
remaining problem appeared to von
Lersner to be the question of the ex

treaty. As the Hst shows, formal noti
ficat ons have been given by most of
the sma'ler powers signatory to the
treaty. China did not sign the docu
rrent, because of her objections to the
Dhantung provisions, but proclaimed a
state of peace with Germany.
Demand Made on Germany
The ail-important fatification by
Germany was given on July 9, 1919,
the day following wh'ch President Wil?
son prcented the treaty to the United
Stites Senate.
The rr.aking of the peace which now
becomes effective was begun shortly
after the conc'usion of the armistice
of November 11, 1918, which endod the
great war. The Treatv of Versai les, as
it has become kmwn, was signed in
tue Ifstoric Versai.les Pa.ace on June
28, 1919.
The long interval between the as
semblirg of the peace conference at
Versai es, on January 18, 1919, and
tho signing of the peace treaty was
occupied with a'most dai y conferences
on its provisions between the repre
sentatives of the nations which had
been at war with Germany or had
broken relations with her. the princi
pal parts bein^ taken by delegates of
France, Great Britain, Italy, Japan and
the United States. The first important
work comp eted was the drawing up of
tho covenant of the league of nations,
which was finished on February 14.
The German representat ves were in
vitcd to Versai les during April. after
the draft of the t-rms of peace had
been completed, They received the
trbaty on May 7.
, The treaty not on'y defines the
terms of peace with Germany, but con
tains the league of nations "covenant
and the provisions for the interna
tional labor organizat.on. The docu
ment comprises fifteon parts, w th nu
merous annexes. The treaty will enter
into force for each power at the dato
of the deposit of its ratification.
In OcLober last a :unicient number
of powers had ratified tiie treaty to
coniply with the requirements for its
effoctiveness. Because of the sinking
of the interned German warships, by
their officers and crews at Scapa F'ow,
however, and the failure of the Gcr
mans to live up to some of the arm's
ice terrrs, the Allies on November 1
demanded that before the treaty waa
put in'o r.Tect German:' should si'^n
i protoco' providing fcr repnratlon for
the de3trueiion of the warships and
?tuaranteeing the carrying out of the
armist'ee terms.

Direct Suggestions ta the
President, He Tells
His Ratification Friends
BOSTON. Jan 10.?Senator Lodge
n a personal letter, made public to
day by the Massachusetts joint com
nittee for a league of free nations,
idvises those who are anxious for
.jrornpt action on the treaty to direct
iome of these sugges:ions to the Presi
ient. The letter from Senator Lodge
says: -
'?The incesrant demand that is made
in certain quarte s for further con?
cessions by the Senate is not helpful
to the cause of agreement, because the
President has not only failed at every
point to consu t the S_>natc in any way,
but he still stands immovable in his
demand that we ratify the leagrfe of
nations without any change at all,
which the Senate has refused to do.
,-It seems to me it would be well for
those who are anxious for immediate
oction to direct some of their sugges?
tions to the P;esident and his foilow
eis, whom he called upon to reject the
rescrvations which are offered and
which I believe to be absolutely sound
in principle."
