BERLIN, March 8.---The failure to
reach an agreement in London on the
reparations payments had already been
discounted here, hence the breaking
off of the negotiations and the con?
sequent punitive measures were ac?
cepted here with comparative om
posure. That the advance of the Allied
troops into Germany is a serious blow
to business interests is everywhere
recognized, but. it is also held that
Germany must, submit to that lv\\
rather than to a greater one.
The view is also expressed with much
satisfaction that working a great eco?
nomic injury to Germany will fail to !
obtain any advantage's for the Allies, ?

It had been hoped that some ratihns
of'avoiding a final break might be
found,?in view of the informal conf?r?
ences between Dr. Simons and Premier
Lloyd George and Briand during the
last three days. Speaking of the Allied
penalties, a Cabinet member said after!
the adjournment of the meeting, "We I
must bear them with dignity."
Members of the Cabinet who were j
willing to talk viewed the situation?
with a show of resignation, and de- !
clared nothing would be said or done ?
until the effect of the Entente invasion!
had been demonstrated practically.
Coal Deliveries Involved
Germany's coal deliveries to the Allies
may be affected' by the present situa?
tion, it was indicated last night. Al?
though Entente troops may seize im?
portant coal shipping points, they will
have to go still further into the;
Ruhr district in order to secure effec- I
tive control of coal production. No in?
formation had been received by the
government last night regarding the
operation of the customs barrier to
be established as a part of the Entente
"We were ambushed in the midst of '
the negotiations by the declarations
of Premier Lloyd George that the pen- j
altir-s had been put into effect, al- j
though the negotiations were still go- i
ing on and were based on the informal I
conferences held during the last few
days," one Cabinet member said, after I
th?*session last night. "The Entente's j
procedure is not warranted by my ,
clause o',' the treaty."
None of the Cabinet members ap
peared to have any definite idea as to ?
tiu- next move of the Allies, aside from j
invading fresh German areas. The |
government, it was said, was certain !
of support from the Reichstag, in view
of declarations made last Saturday,
when all factions except the Com?
munists went on record in opposition
to the demands formulated at Paris.
General Strike Improbable
There will be no general strike in
protest against the Allied advance
into Germany, it has been decided by
the labor ivnions. The Communists
have been urging such a strike, but
tho proposition to participate in one
has been declined by the labor organ?
The Berlin newspapers to-day dis?
cuss quietly the breaking off of nego?
tiations. They are virtually unanimous
in describing the enforcement of the
penalties as a violation of the Ver?
sailles Peace Treaty. At the same
time, however, they advise the popu?
lace to meet coming events with com?
posure. ' ,
The Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung,
organ of Hugo Stinnes, the capitalist,
"Germany's proposals were rejected
with cold scorn before the Allies took
the trouble to examine them in detail.
The French now have the opportuntiy,
under pretext of enforcing the pen?
alties, of taking pc-ssession of Ger?
many's coal, settling themselves in the
Ruhr region and taking the first steps
in their plans of destruction. But they
' soon will learn that these measures
i are of as little use to them as to the
rest of civilization. Germany can con
iidently await the tide of events, rely
i ing on the righteousness of her cause."

Fear Withdrawals May Be Difficult
These fear that the advance of troops ?
into Germany is only the beginning of j
more serious things. They wonder,
whether the withdrawal will be as easy
or whether, as in war, the advance |
means entanglements and rcsponsibili- j
ties which might hold a nation even
when it desired to retire.
Now that the military forces are in
th?? very heart of industrial Germany
and in full control of it, nobody knows I
what will happen next.
The British public shows an indif- ?
ference to the whole subject which it j
is cftflicult to understand. There is no \
excitement and none of the enthusiasm
attending entry into war. Most of the \
people seem to think that Lloyd George \
has taken the only step possible, but j
there are others who already have \
raised their voices in criticism.
Briand and his delegation will return
to Paris on Thursday, following an?
other conference on the Near East
situation. He will return in triumph,
having won honors in both conferences
The Star this evening in commenting1
on the situation says:
"General Foch has had his way. If
he is not to march to Berlin lie at
least will cross the Rhine and occupy
the towns of Dusseldorf. Ruhrort and
Duisburg. This is the reply of the
Allies to the second Gorman offer of
reparations and this morning the Rhine j
armies of the British, French and Bel-:
gians went forward.
"Once more we am committed to a
military enterprise of incalculable con?
sequences, and this time it is not in
observance of a solemn treaty, not j
even in defense of a menaced ally, but ;
to collect a debt. It is a vast debt, it
is true, but it might be argued that wo
have put in the broker before the rent
is actually due. There were political
ambitions which even. Bismarck did not
consider to he worth the 'bones of a
single Pomeranian grenadier.'"
LONDON, March 8 (By The Asso?
ciated Press).?Orders for the advance
of British troops upon Duesseldorf
were issued at the British War Office
last night. There are 12,000 British
soldiers in Germany, of whom 4,000
are on temporary duty in Upper
Silesia. It is believed the forces along
the Rhine will be reinforced so that
__H>y will number 12,000, four battalions
being ready to go to the Britiah sec?
tion of the German occupied territory.
'Great Britain's contribution to the
occupational forces for the present is
to be conlined to cavalry, tanks and a
small flotilla of boats, in addition to
a small complement, of soldiers.
It is officially announced that no !
troops will be sent from England ' to ;
This morning's newspapers, wiih one
exception, approved of the Allied de?
cision to penalize Germany for refus?
ing'to accede to the Allied plan for
reparations. This exception was The
Daily News, which complained Premier
Lloyd George had "brushed aside Ger?
man offers making for a peaceful solu?
tion of the situation."
Some misgivings were expressed by
The Daily Express, which urged that
Great Britain limit its participation in
military activities fo the minimum.

speech was "a model of tactlessness

soled itself, however, by asserting:
"From a revolutionary viewpoint, the

The Jiji Shimpo, commenting espe?

dete-mination of the Republican Ad?
ministration to stick to the policy of
standing outside the League of Na?

that Mr. Harding's plans toward ap?
proximate disarmament and the estab?
lishment of a world tribunal may be
regarded as the nucleus of an asso?

thinks the inaugural address a direct
message to tiie government and people
of Japan, for, it declares, it is "hardly
possible all the war talk of the last

London Sees Signs
Of Irish Peace on
St. Patrick's Day
Greenwood Adopts Coneiiia
tory Tone and Lord Mid-!
dleton Points Out New,
Groups Promoting Truce
From. Thr Tribune's European Bur*a i
Copyright, 1921, New "fork Tribune It??".
LONDON, March 8.?Talk of what is
termed a St. Patrick's peace has been
revived in Ireland by a speech deliv?
ered by Lord Middleton before the
Dublin Rotary CluD yesterday and the
more conciliatory ton? adopted in Par?
liament by Sir llamar Greenwood, Sec?
retary for Ireland.
This latter circumstance is the more
important because it is in response to
warnings from several conservative
sources that they are out of sympathy
with the government's policy. Inas?
much as the Conservatives have been
the main supporters of Sir llamar, he
immediately promised to consider plac?
ing all the Irish forces under General
Sir Nevil Macready.
Lord Middleton, in his Dublin ad?
dress, said that two great reserve opin?
ions?commercial and ecclesiastical
were mobilized into a unit to work for
pacification. This was in reply to the
proposal of the merchants that he ask
Lloyd George to send a Cabinet repre?
sentative to a small conference in
southern Inland. There also appears
in to-day's Irish press a letter from
Cardinal Logue supporting the truce.
The Unionist Irish Times, of Dub?
lin, which Lord Middleton inspires, ex?
presses the belief that the proposed
conference could sit in the -near future
with substantial prospects of success.
The Freeman's Journal, National?
ist, however, recalls that Lord Middle
ton has not b_e;i trusted as a negotia?
tor since his intervention in the secret
negotiations which wrecked the work
of Plunkett's peace conference last fall,
and repeats thai a settlement is im?
possible on the basis of a partition
This revival of peace talk as yet has
not been accompanied by a cessation
of the daily grist of outrages reported
from Ireland, the ambushes and shoot?
ings continuing with slight interrup?
DUBLIN, March S .?Four persons
were shot and killed in engagements
between Crown forces and Sinn F?in
detachments in Southern Ireland last
night. A motor lorry was ambushed
near Dallinvobe, and Captain Chatfield
and two privates were wounded. Po?
lice auxiliaries engaged in an hour's
fight with Sinn F?iners at Mullinhoe,
County Tipperary, three civilians being
killed and 20 captured. One man was
killed at Toames, County Cork.
A police sergeant was shot and
killed at Kilmallock, CountyLimerick,
by live men, and the military forces
retaliated by blowing up a store near
where the attack took place.
