ft S. Held Yap Question Open geply? a8 G>ven ^ut' Says Wilson and Lansing, at Sessions Before Final One, Made Valid Reservations Will Broach Issue Anew; Up to Supreme Council; Bryden and Wallace to Join Allied Commissions ftm r*-* Tribune's Washington Buresu WASHINGTON, Aprli 14.?Accopt vtt by the French government of the ?imerican principle of equality of Mghts in mandatory territories, ad? duced in the Hughes note to the four *reit powers allied with the United j States in the war, is s?en in Premier j Briand's answer, made public to-day by I ?hi State Department. The reply not only says no binding lietision can be reached on the status o? the mandate over Yap until the Al? lied Supreme Council meets and the American viewpoint is carefully consid? ered, but Premier Briand gives assur? ance that the French representatives will place before the Council the Yap ouestion with the "greatest desire to ? nd ? solution which will give every f?tisfaction to the United States." The French reply is made more com - iete?y satisfactory by the statement tt Premier Briand that, while no spe? cific reservation on the disposition of Yap was voiced by the United States at the Council's meeting of May 7, 1919, both former President Wilson and for? mer Secretary of State Lansing had previously registered categorical reser? vations concerning the naming of Japan as mandatary over Yap, and that Baron Makino, the Japanese represent? ante, bad raised no objection. Keen Satisfaction These two points in the French re? ply were referred to by officials with the greatest satisfaction, and, although it was admitted that the French answer defers complete settlement of the Yap oispute to the future meeting of the Allied ambassadors, sitting as the Supreme Council, the friendship of Fnnce at this forthcoming meeting was assured. The* reply of the French government vas handed to American Ambassador Wallace at Paris April 7 and trans? mitted at once to the State Depart? ment Simultaneous publication of the i;ote was authorized to-day, both in Washington and Paris. The text of the reply follows: "I have the honor to acknowledge tie receipt of the letter dated the V.n of this month by which your tieellency was good enough to trans ?tto me a memorandum from the De iirtment of State relative to the status o: the island of Yap. Since this memorandum was sent f/aultaneously to the governments of l?reat Britain, Italy and Japan it can sot be answered until after an under1 landing has been reached between the rovernments of the four interested ;owers at the time of the next meeting of the Supreme Council of the Allies. "I wish, however, to inform your ex? cellency at once that when this ques? tion comes before the Supreme Council the representatives of France will broach the examination thereof with the greatest desire to find a solution which will give every satisfaction to the United States. "As your excellency knows, the gov? ernment of the republic already has done all in its power to lend its aid to the American government in this mat? ter. By a note dated February 18, after having noted that the decision of May 7, 1919, made no reservation con? cerning the mandate attributed to Japan over the islands of the Northern Pa? cific, my department pointed out to your embassy that nevertheless Presi? dent Wilson and Mr. Lansing had formulated in the course of a former meeting in the presence of bhe repre? sentative of Japan categorical reserva? tions concerning the island of Yap, that Baron Makino had not objected, that the question raised by the representa? tives of the United States should be placed in discussion, and that conse? quently the Japanese government was cognizant of the American reserva? tions. The note concluded that thus there were elements for a resumption of conversations between the United States and Japan which the govern? ment of the republic would be happy to see result in a satisfactory con? clusion. Communicated to Japan "This note was communicated on the fame day to the Embassy of Japan at Paris and your excellency was good enough to express to my department jour great satisfaction at this com? munication by giving the assurance that it would be particularly appreci? ated at Washington. BRIAND." With the French view officially be? fore this government, the next move in advancing the Harding policy of coop? eration with the Allied governments is expected to be the designation of Roland, W. Boyden as the American representative to sit on the Reparations Commission.

Attempt to Debate Yap In Parliament Stopped Lloyd George Cheered When He Declares Against Creating Friction With tlnited States LONDON, April 14.?Several mem? bers of the House of Commons made an attempt in the House this after? noon to precipitate a debate on the subject of the mandate over the Island ol Yap and thc American position on the mandate question. Premier Lloyd George, however, headed off the effort with the statement that this subject was under friendly discussion between the United States and thc Allied powers. \ "Nothing could bo gained and much might bo lost by dragging the con? troversy into the Parliamentary arena" ..e ?aid. ' At another point, during the after? noon s proceedings Mr. Lloyd Georjrc said, amid cheers: "I am perfectly certain that the last t.nng the people of this country dosire is any misunderstanding with the peo? ple, of the Lnited States, and anything which will conduce to or provoke a dis? cussion which might lead to that mis? understanding would be deprecated bv every one." Tokio Editorials on Yap Urge Conciliatory Stand Equal Rights for Japan in Pa cific Islands Suggested, With Ban on Guam Forts TOKIO, April 14 (By The Associated Press).?The newspapers to-day, appre? ciating the importance of the recent American note concerning mandates, continue to print lengthy editorials. Meantime, it is understood that Japan is consulting with Great Britain and France on the subject. While some o the newspapers coun? sel in favor of no concessions being made, leading organs like the Yomiuri, the Jiji Shimpo and tho Asahi advise a cone'liatory attitude. The Yomiuri considers that the United States is justified at least in protesting concerning the mandate for the island of Yap. Should Japan aban? don the mandate, however, she should ask the United States to abandon the fortifying of Guam, it says. Though it deems the American atti? tude unreasonable, because, it says, the treaty was concluded mainly as a re? sult of the support of the American plenipotentiaries, the Jiji Shimpo rec? ommends concessions regarding cable questions in the Pacific, like those made by France in the Atlantic. .?,-# Arthur Hammerstein And Wife Separated Former Claire Nagel, Broad. ?way Favorite, Was Third Wife of Impresario Arthur Hammerstein, one of the fore? most of New York's theatrical produc? ers, son of the late Oscar Hammerstein, -*pera impresario, is said to have sep? arated from his wife, Claire Nagel, who, at the time of her marriage in 1919, was a member of his "Tumble In" company, then playing at the Scl wyn Theater.

Cox by Special Act of Congress From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, April 14.?For ex? traordinary heroism seventeen years ago Gunner Robert Edward Cox, U. S. N., was decorated to-day with the Congressional Medal of Honor by President Harding at the White House. Cox waited a long time for the honor, but when it finally did come it brought with it the added dis? tinction of being the first Congres? sional Medal of Honor over pinned on a man's breast in the White House. The action for which Cox received tho medal took place April 13, 1904. He was on the U. S. S. Missouri at the timo when an accident took place in the after turret during maneuvers off Pensacola, Fla. He with two companions, M. Mons sen and S. S. Schepke, then gunner's mates, but later commissioned, not only risked their lives in deadly fumes and blazing powder, but put out a fire in a powder magazine. On recommen? dation of the court of inquiry medals f>f honor were awarded Monsson and Schepke, but as the law at that time did not permit the awarding of a medal of honor to warrant -officers Gunner Cox did not receive one, despite the recom? mendation of the captain of the Mis? souri and the approval of President Rofsevelt. All Cox received at the time wns b congratulatory letter from President Roosevelt and Secretary of the Navy Moody. The Secretary in his letter told Cox that he had been unanimously recom? mended for decoration by his captain, the commander of the North Atlantic fleet, and the President. The Secre? tary went on to say that the depart? ment, though denied by law the privi? lege of awarding the medal, announced that "all the distinction that a medal of honor can convey is yours, by right of your admirable courage and pres? ence of mind on this occasion." Time passed until on February 20, 1920, the facts were laid before Con? gress end on February 1, 1921, the fol? lowing act became a law: "That the President of the United States be, and is hereby authorized to award a medal of honor to Chief Gun? ner Robert E. Cox, U S. N., in recog? nition of the extraordinary heroism he ! displayed on the occasion of the acci? dent which occurred in the after tur? ret of the U. S. S. Missouri April 13, 1904." And so, seventeen years almost to a day sin/:e Cox performed his heroic deed, his country proved to him that republics are not always ungrateful. Theodore Roosevelt, jr., as Assistant Secretary of the Navy, was present to see the man his father recommended for a decoration finally receive it. Secretary of the Navy Denby was present also, as well as representa? tives from the Senate and House Naval committees. Rear Admiral W. S. Cowles, who commanded the Missouri when the accident took place, was one of the first to congratulate Cox after the medal was '.wprded. And, last but not least, Monssen and Schepke, the two who ventured into the burning powded magazine with Cox on that eventful day so long ago, were there, two smart looking lieuten? ants. Cox himself was no more pleased at receiving the most highly prized decoration within the country's gift than Monssen and Schepke. |Be?t MADE CLOTHES FOR MEN &.

Signor Vittorio Rolandi Ricci, Italian ) Ambassador, was the guest of honor j a*, a dinner tendered him by the Italy I America Society in the Hotel Astor last night. More than 500 prominent citi? zens were present. Tho dinner was presided over by Paul D. Cravath, president of the so J c'ety. Immediately after the dinner, Mr. Cravath read a message from ? President Harding which sail in part: "Under present world conditions it I is becoming that Americans express our i high regard to Italy and her represcnt : atives. Wc never can bo without in | tt-rest in Italy's sp.endid efforts for reconstruction after a war in which I she paid dearly and so bravely for her ! noble participation in a groat cause. ThougJi fslse report has proclaimed and misrepresented Italy's difficulties, those who know her and hold affection for her and for her people remain in full confidence of her stability, her future progress and the constancy of her high aspirations. Like our own, these aspirations are directed toward well ordered progress, based upon material welfare in part, but founded first of all upon the merit and ? worth of human character, and aimed at human achievement." In his address Ambassador Ricci re? viewed conditions throughout the world following the war. j "Thc war is survived by war-time j passions," he said, "and prejudices that are ill adapted to times of peace, and here and there we behold political . phenomona, collective and individual, in marked contrast With what ought to be the unanimous aspirations of the civiliz.ed world to-day. "If in the caso of Russia we must admit thc utter failure of an infinitely exaggerated experiment, it is because ' that experiment lacked animating faith, lacked even a substratum of vivi? fying hope; it is because its guiding ph,losophy was clogged by a discourag? ing and inexorable determinism in ac? cord with which everything that hap? pens must be determined by an inflex? ible authoritative ruling." | Weeks Opposes Reducing ! Army Below 175,000 i WASHINGTON, April 14.?Opposi- I tion to reduction of the regular army | peace strength below 175.000 enlisted men was expressed by Secretary Weeks ! to-day at a conference with Congres ! sional leaders. Ho indicated later, however, that he expected the House to insist on a further reduction. Those who participated in to-day's conference included Major General March, Chief of Staff; Senators Wads worth (chairman), Frelinghuysen, New and Lenroot, of the Senate Military Committee; Chairman Good of the House Appropriations Committee and Representatives Anthony, Slemp and Cramton, of the sub-committee that framed the army bill pocket-vetoed by President Wilson. Secretary Weeks declared savings could be effected in other directions so that it would not increase the bill's total?-approximately $343,000,000, as passed last session?to provide for a force of 175,000 men during the com? ing fiscal year. Further conferences will be held. Representative Anthony said after the conference he believed the House, ! which voted last session for 150,000 men, but later accepted a Sonate com . promise of 150,000, would balk at any i larger figure. Charges Bryan Ousted Trained U. S. Diplomats Henry Lane Wilson Denounce* Democrats for Giving Posts to "Pill Doctors" BALTIMORE, April 14.?The foreign policy of the WilBon Administration was assailed by Henry Lane Wilson, former Ambassador to Mexico, in an address at the annual meeting of the National Civil Service Reform League hero to-day. Reviewing the advances in the diplo? matic service made in the Administra? tions of Presidents McKinley, Roose? velt and Taft, Mr. Wilson declared I that the "Wilson and Bryan policies : checked the development of our for? eign service." The policy of the Wilson Adminis- ! tration in Mexico, the former Ambassa- j dor said, placed our nation in a "false I and ridiculous position before the '? woi-ld and aroused the suspicion and distrust of all Latin America. Under Mr. Bryan's administration of the State Department, the most trusted, i most highly trained, the best informed ! aids in the Department of State were | relieved of their duties without refer- : ence to the important business of this i country, and patent-machine venders, pill doctors and political lawyers were ? placed in positions which they had ! not the natural ability nor previous j training to fill." \ Other speakers were Richard Henry ; Dana, of Boston, to-day re?lected presi- ; dent of the league, and Mrs. Helen H.

Disarmament Still an Issue The disarmament question that also must be thrashed out with the Allies | is still under fire here. In the Bava? rian Landtag Finance Committee ses? sion yesterday Secretary of State Schweyer revealed that the Einwoh? nerwehr (citizen guards) in Bavaria i now number 320,000 men. The min- ; ister argued that this army was not | to be used for foreign operations, and i therefore constituted no political I danger. He promised that disarma? ment eventually would be carried out, j but insisted that the present was not the time for such a measure. Socialist member Timm demanded immediato disarmament, charging that the army was being maintained by the government for use against the work? ers. Representatives of the German People's party argued that the need for such an army had been apparent in the recent Communist uprisings and that the Allies should be brought to realize this. The reactionaries have taken to this argument in, great numbers, feeling that the preservation of order in Germany and the defense of the country against Bolshevism rest upon them.

Sup? porters of Joseph McDermott, of Mor gantown, W. Va., and Colonel Edward Clifford, of Chicago, the leading can? didates, called on the President tq-day. Pressure was brought to bear al?* in behalf of former Governor Hoope? of Tennessee, who is mentioned l* a compromise candidate. McDermott and Clifford appear to have an even chance. t The former is backed by Senator Davis Elkins and the entire West Virginia delegation. Clifford is equally strong with the Illinois delegation. Indications are that the President will fill the post this week. In the list of recess appointments sent to the Senate to-day were the names of Colonel George Harvey and Myron T. Herrick as ambassadors to England and France, respectively. The names were referred to committee and will undoubtedly be confirmed within a few days. A number of other dip? lomatic appointments are looked for within a few days, as well as appoint? ments to the Railway Labor Board und the Shipping Board. The name of James A.

Girl's Stolen Diamonds Left With Police Chief Package Con ta ?n in g Jewels Worth $12,000 Delivered at Door Soon After Robbery Mrs. Anna Shlarew, of 7 Twentieth Street, West New York, is so fearful of burglars that when she went shop? ping yesterday she took her twelve dia? mond rings and a diamond brooch, valued in all at $12,000, with her in a handbag. She had almost reached her home on her return late in the afternoon when two men sprang from behind a tree, one of whom seized her while the other snatched her handbag, They made off in an automobile before she could scream. She did notice the license number of the car, however", and within a few minutes a general alarm for it had been sent throughout nearby New Jer sey. Within an hour it was fou? ? abondoned in West- Hoboken. Within another hour Mrs. Charit Rohrbach, wife of the chief of polit of that town, called up her husbaiid and informed him that a boy had lef a package at the house for him. Chic' Rohrbach told his wife to open it, and as she did so her gasp of astonishment came over the wire to him. "It's full of diamonds'." she es claimed. Chief Rohrbach, who had Just ir ceived a description of the stolen jew? elry, was equally amazed to discover that the package contained Mrs. Shlarew's brooch and rings.
