Dec. 17.?The Chamber of Deputies voted confidence in the gov? ernment to-day, 489 to 69, after dis? cus-ing the resignation yesterday of Andre Lefevre, 'Jit War Minister. General Castelnau president of the j army commission, interpellating Pre- , mier Leygues on tue resignation of M Lefevre, said: "The fears for for? mel Minister Lefevre would he justi? fied if Germany weie not disarmed. We ask the Premier is Germany dis? armed or in a fair way of disarma tr'.r.T? If not, why are you waiting 1 perform the operation which this ! Chamber has been requesting unceas? ingly the last year? Must End Power of German? "We must end, at least temporarily, ? the military power of Germany, and end it for as long a period as possible. , If German*? has not been disarmed she : must be disarmed immediately. Ger- i many if a troublesome power and is j opposing resistance to execution of the treaty. The reparations question is unsettled, although the fact remains | that Germany was defeated. France ca? not reduce her military expenses, without sacrificing the highest na? tional interests, until Germany is dis? armed.'' The whole Chamber applauded Gen? eral Castelnau, even the Socialists joiring in. Premier Leygues. replying, said the military bill which caused the ?esigna t'on of M. Lefevre as insufficient to protect France had been indorsed by Marshals Foch, J-ffre and P?tain and Generals Mangin, Brat, Fayolle, Franchet d'Esperey, Debeny, D?goutte and Weygand. "These eminent chiefs, to whom we owe victory, see no dangcf fer the national defense in the gov? ernment bill." Premier Leygues said. , Is Germany total!*,* disarmed? Nu. ? -he in a fair '*a\ of disarming?. Yes." The Premier added that Germany lad surrendered 30,000 guns and de? stroyed 28,000; surrendered 65.000 mechine guns and destroyed 50.000; surrendered 97,000 machine gun tubes ar.?l destroyed 52,000; surrendered 2.500,000 rifles and destroyed 2,520,000. 'Trance's position is secure against German aggression," M. Leygues de? clared, "and France also is capable of ?. nforcing execution of the treaty." Premier Peygues, replying to an in terpellation concerning disarmament and reparations, said: "The French representatives at Brus s sis have been given clear and concise : --mictions. France is not desirous of compelling Germany to pay her reparations in gold mark?. France asks only the e:<ecution of the peace treaty within reasonable limits. Whether Germany's debt is paid in ? Id or goods matters rot. so long as ! the debt is paid. "We do not wish France to appear ; before the world as a nation which : abuses its strer.?rth. Propaga* da is going on, especially in the United ; States, to picture France as a mili? tarist and imperialist power. Against such propaganda France must reply by '. opposing a clear and conciliating atti- ? tude." Schleswiff Treaty Signed Denmark Aerees to Pav 65, 000.000 Marks to Germany PARIS, Dec. 17.?Representative! of Germany and Denmark signed to-day ; the financial convention concerning ! the Schleswig territory which was re-1 ceded to Denmark by Germany under ! the peace treaty.

Interrogations were ! put to the government in the Chamber of Deputies to-day concerning the case of Andrea Salsedo, an Italian, who in*June leaped from the fourteenth1 story ef the Park Row Building, in j New York City, after his urrest as an anarchist by agents of the United states government. The Socialist ! Deputy Mucci, who lived for six i years in the United States, was the | questioner. Replying, Under Secretary for For? eign Affairs Saluzzo, declared Salsedo i had been imprisoned as a Bolshevik ancj that investigations to establish ' his gu>!t were Itill pending. Signor Saluz.zo, answering another question put by Deputy Mucci, said that an Italian, alleged to be a count, | arrested in Altoona, Pa., on a charge j of fraud, might not be a count. Cer- ' tainly, added the Under Secretary, he j did not represent the Italian govern ment.

There is no expecta? tion in Dublin that South Ireland will accept the bill, and the existence of a separate Northern parliament is held to be an obstacle to further negotia? tion for a comptehensive. settlement.

The amendments to the measure made by the. lower house were amicably discussed in the upper chamber to-dav, and all were disposed of in a manner that will permit the measure becoming a law to-morrow. At thjp. opei3ing of the debate on the bill Baron Birkenhead, the Lord Chan? cellor, intimated that an agreement might be reached on inost 01' the amendments to the measure, but that the government would insist 033 retain? ing control of "the appointed day" v hen the bill should becosne operative. Baron Birkenhead contended that, it was only fair that the government, be? ing responsible, for the task of pre? serving order, should be entitled, to judge when the proper moment, had ar? rived. . The Lord Chancellor added that the government w?s ?strong y f the oin ?033 that, owing to the rapidly changing conditions in Ireland, the "appointed day" 3T)iglit come within a few months; that the decision of victory was being so clearly determined on the side of l;.w and ordes' it would theti be possib! ? to hoi?.; <? cet ?s 113 Iruiand, wn fear of intimidation.

Paper .Says Britain Might Aid De Valera's Rrlum Prom The Tribune's Europ. Bureau Copyright, 1921, New Vorit Tribune inc. LONDON, Dec. 17.?Rumors that Eamon de Valera, "President of the Irish Republic," is on his way to Eng? land have aroused some interest here, although skepticism as to the truth of the report is evidenced. The govern? ment's attitude toward his possible re? turn, Th<* Evening News understands, is: "If he returns, in the usual way to resume his activities as the ???rector of the Sinn Fc,ri party he will be liable to arrest by the local authorities under measures which they deem wise for the maintenance of order. But if he conies merely to share in negotiations with the government, or to consult other recognized chiefs of Sinn F?in regard? ing the possibility of peace, the gov? ernment will not oppose his return, and may even intercede with the Irish authorities to grant him his freedom for a lirriited stay in Ireland." Resolution Asks House for V. S. Envoy to Erin WASHINGTON, Dec. 17.?A resolu? tion under which Congress would pledge itself to make an appropriation for the establishment and maintenance of a diplomatic and consular service in Ireland was introduced to-day by Rep? resentative Mason, Republican, of Illi? nois. The measure condemns as "sav? age warfare" British rule in Ireland, and says that "the wholesale destruc? tion of lives and property is conclusive evidence that Great Britain has lost control of the government there." .-?

Bergmann Asserts Germany Can Pay Only in Materials Eager to Have Bill of Allies, but Definite Proposals From Berlin Not Likely at the Geneva Conference Byecial Cable to The Tribune Copyright, 1920, New York Tribune Inc. BRUSSELS, Dec. 17.?Sigmund Berg I mann, head of the German delegation I to the financial conference on war rep j arations, asserted to-day that Germany ? was anxious to fix as soon as possible the Bum it would be able to pay, but ! that, in his opinion, it would require | thirty years to pay the sum demanded, | and the only possible means at present by which payments could be made would i be in coal, potash and other raw ma j terials. He reminded his hearers that. Ger ; many already had begun and was con? tinuing payments, in kind, as laid dowu in Annex ?t of the yersai les Treaty. ? He said it doubtless would be possi? ble to increase these payments, but he again emphasized that his country ; could enter into no further engage? ments for payments before the result of : : the Silesian plebiscite was known. This was the first intimation of the manner in which Germany expected to ' make payments. Yesterday the Berlin delegates evaded leading questions ? along this line addressed to them by several of the Allied delegates, notably Premier Delacroix of Belsium. Continuing, Bergmann protested the high cost of the armies of occupation and he said it would be impossible to make payments in cash* as long as his country had to support this heavy burden. He said that, last year the cost was 15.000.000,000 marks. The Allied delegates gave the- closest, attention to Bei-gmann's address. He lia;, always professed friendship for the Allies and he is well known to many of the delegates ano" especially to the French as he formerry lived in Parin. lie appeared especially anxious to dis? sipate the bad impression made yes? terday by the pessimistic speech of Governor Havenstein of the Rcichs bank. The Allied delegates fear that thus far their time here has been wasted a3id thero is an impression of disap? pointment over the failure to obtain any definite results thus far. They do not expect any definite proposals from the Germans in tin* next few days. This was the genera! opinion fol ? lowing an informal discussion among ' the Allied delegates after the day's session. The conference la to be pro , longed over Christinas.

If you missed- Letter Xo. 1 and would like to have a copy, xvrite to me and I will mail it to you. * * -# courage me, for my earning power is greater to-day than it ever was, and I am going to make the best of it for the balance of my life. It is never too late to mend one's ways. * * * In order that you may know what 1 have missed during my lifetime by not saving a little money. I called on Mr. F. L. Blackburn, the statistician of Henry L. Doherty & Company, 60 Wall street, and asked him how much money I would have had to-day if I had saved only 10 per cent, of my earnings and allowed principal and' interest at 6 per cent., compounded semi-annually, to accumulate during the 42 years I have worked. T gave Mr. Blackburn a statement showing my earnings every year since T started to work. From it he pre? pared the following table: $ 3 per tnot3th for 42 years.$ 6,58.5.80 2 additional per mo. for 41 yrs. 4,115.55 5 additional per mo. for 40 vrs. 9.640.84 20 additional per 3330. for 33 yra. 24,139.41 70 additional per 3110. for 28 yrs, 59,284.34 50 additional per mo. for 11 yrs. 12,829.24 $116,595.18 * * * Explanatory of the above table, Mr. Blackburn started me off with the $3 a month I could have saved the lirst year I worked. The $2 repre? sents the increase in my monthly sav? ings the second year. (I could have saved $5 a month the second year.) The next period I could have saved $5 a month more I lian the second year or #10 a month. The next period I could have saved $20 a month more,. or $,30 a month. The next period I could have saved $70 a month more? or $100 a month. The final period I couild have saved $50 a month more, or #150 a month. During each period, please re? member, I am credited with saving only 10 per cent, of my earnings, which is a ridiculously small sum when it is taken into consideration that 1 was averaging $1,000 a month when I was supposed to save $100 a month, and did not?and that 1 was averaging $1,500 a month when I was supposed to save $150, and did not. Any man working on a salary and who spends it all, as I did, is just as foolish as 1 have been all my life, * * * 1 wish to call particular attention to the fact that the $36 1 might easily [lave saved the lirst year I worked, would now amount to $6,585.80. I Think of it! j Look at the big total of the savings ? 1 might have to-day! Does it not make one stop and think' Suppose you start now to save as little as $1.00 a week and keep it up for 25 years. Mr. Blackburn tells me that at the end of 2.5 years, provided you do not dip into your savings, you will have in cash the sum of $2,932.71 ! If you save $2.00 a week you will have twice this amount, and if you are able to save $5.00 a week all the way through, you will have five times as much, or a nice little fortune?ap? proximately $15,000. Worth doing?isn't it? Of course, opportunities will come to you as they did to me to invest in enter? prises that will earn for you a Inrger re? turn than the regular rate of interest. There are always wonderful opportuni? ties in this country for those with ready cash, and one can get a verj good start toward success by investing small sums at a time. Mr. Doherty's idea about this thrift campaign is first to induce people to save, and second, to give them a chance to invest their savings, no matter how small, in good securities, backed by good, going enterprises. * * * A little booklet?very timely, very helpful?that a man can carry in his vest pocket or a woman in her vanity case, will be mailed to you without charge if you will write for it to Henry L. Doherty & Company, 60 Wall Street, New York City. This little book, by the way, is a fine example of thrift in the cost of its printing and distribution. ? ? ? Letter Number Three will appear in the evening newspapers tonight, December 18. Sincerely yours, WILLIAM G.* FREEMAN. 117 West 46th St.. New York City. tmssmtmsm?mmsMmo?mm?SSMssmss?msassmtMsmm?mmsssmimiam??mmmsBsmsm?smmssmm When Henry L. Doherty, head of Henry L. Doherty & Company, GO Wall street, asked me to write a series of letters to you on thrift I told him very frankly that I needed to be taught the lesson of thrift as much as anybody in the whole world. When he unfolded his plan to me at our first conference I never felt so ashamed of myself in my whole life. I did not want to undertake the work he asked me to do without telling him my own situation. I put all the cards on the table. His decision was that I ought to be able, in the light of my own experi? ences, to talk about thrift better than somebody who has always been i thrifty, because T could picture the j tragedy of not saving, which he thinks \ is vitail to arouse the people to the !j necessity of saving. \ He did not suggest that I tell my i own story, but when I told him thai \ ? would be willing to do so to help i the cause along he said: I "It will be a wonderful thing for jj you to do, because most men want to i keep their mistakes hidden; it will not I do you any harm to tell the truth; I besides, I think your frank statement '! will influence thousands of people to ,j begin saving money; furthermore, ^i you yourself now appreciate how necessary it is to save money, so it is ?1 lot too late for you to begin." Then what do you suppose Mr. Doherty said? He toild me lie in? tended to pay me a retainer fee, the same as people pay to retain lawyers who undertake cases for them, and he named a fee the amount of which nearly made me fall off my chair. ?VI r. Doherty appr?ci?tes'the value of services, which is the reason the peo? ple associated with him "come through1' so splendidly. ? ? ? I "Now instead of paying you this I retainer fee cash down," he contin I ued, "I am going to invest it for your 1 wife and daughter in equal parts. I I am going to start you on a career of I saving right now. The work you are 5 going to do for us you can do better I than anybody I know. There is go | ing to be a lot of it to do. You will 1 be well paid for it as you go along. ? "You must not feel that you have ] been a failure altogether because you f have not saved money. 1 think you \ have been very successful profession Ially, but you would have been more so had you saved some of your money. With part of your savings safely invested and bringing you in a good income, you could have done a much greater work, which I know you would have enjoyed. "I do not save money for money's sake, but I save it because it is the right thing to do. Besides, it enables me to do the things I like to do, and which I couldn't do if ? had not saved all my life. "It is a real joy to me to be able to help put deserving enterprises on their feet and make money for a lot of people. My suggestions about taking over a business and putting life and enterprise into it would not be considered for a moment if I had not proven myself to be a safe, care? ful business man- -always saving something out of my earnings." * # -* How wall I know the truth of this .last statement of Mr. Doherty's, for no man ever had a better chance ou more chances to make money out of investments in sound enterprises than myself. Numerous friends wanted me to get in at the start of some en? terprises, supposing, of course, that I had saved some money. When they discovered that 1 was wasting my earnings they lost interest in me, and so I missed several opportunities to make money with money. It is al? ways so with the improvident. The savers arc the ones who succeed. * *? * As I look back over the many years I have worked hard and now realize what would have happened to me had I saved as little as 10 per cent, of my earnings, it makes me feel very much ashamed of myself, but it does not dis .w 1 "".
