PARIS, Aug. 8.-The close of the]
Initial session to-day of the most im- ?
portant meeting of the war's victors ?
?ince the Versailles peace conference
found the Allies still at loggerheads '
over the disposition of the claims of
Poland and Germany to the industrial
districts of Upper Silesia.
Surrounded by their experts, foreign
ministers, secretaries and interpreters,,
Premiers Lloyd George, Briand and Bo- \
notai, as well as Ambassador Harvey '
and the Japanese envoys, spent the
'afternoon listening to technical experts
'of France, England and Italy expound
jtheir theories of how Upper Silesia
* poonld be divided. None of them
'?greed with the others.
Theories and figures predominated,
'ind the only point gained on any side
? *jros the admission by the Italian ex
, ?art that he believed the line drawn
', ?y the British experts was nearer than
? the French line to what should be the
final decision. It gives the greater
portion of the industrial area to Ger?
man;,-. The view of an individual ex?
pert, however, does not reflect the finai ;
action thai will be taken by Premier!
. and Marquis Delia Torrotta.

Peace Program, Dublin Hears
London Terms To Be Approved, With Certain R?s?
ervations; McKeown ?s Released by
Order of Llovd George
LOKDON, Aug. S (By The Associated ,
Press"!.?After inquiries in '.voll in?
formed quarters, the Dublin corre?
spondent of The Times learns that the
government peace offer to Ireland, with
certain reservations, is likely to be -c
cepted by the Dail Eireanr?.
An incident which threatened to
wreck further peace negotiation;; be?
tween the British government and the,
f;nn Fein in Ireland has been overcome.
This was brought about to-day
through the release from prison of
John J. McKeown by order of Premier
Lioyd George on representations from
Eamon de Valera, the Irish republi?
can loader.
McKeown was in prison under con?
viction for the murder of Chief In?
spector McGrath. All the other mem?
bers of the Sinn Fein Parliament under
detention had been released, but the
authorities of Dublin Castle had re?
fused to set McKeown free. Tiiis fact
had deeply stirred the Irish people,
who insisted that Mcjvcown should be
accorded the same immunity as bad
been granted the other republicans.
A special courier sent Dy the Irish
republican cabinet to-day delivered to
Mr. Lloyd George in Paris, where he
is attending the Supreme Council, a
message on the situation.
Dublin dispatches quoted Mr. de
Valora as saying he did not. believe
the exception made in detaining M-'
Keown represented the considered ac?
tion of the British Cabinet, but that
it was liii'1 t>~> the action of govern?
mental subordinates in Ireland, who
were proceeding under technicalities.
He also is .-..id to have announced
that he would not continue peace
negotiations with the Bvi'ish govern?
ment it' the government persisted in
holding McKeown in prison. Shortly
afterward word came from Pari? that
it had been decided to set McKeown
In London the incident is considered
a victory for the .Sinn F?in. The gen?
eral belief is, however, that the Dublin
Castle officials acted without consult?
ing the London government when thej
issued their notice that McKeown cou'ii
not be released, and that the London
government, in the interest of peace
overruled them.
The actual departure of McKeown
from Mountjoy Prison, Dublin, was
without any noteworthy demonstration
A few friends met him at the prisoi
(?te, and a small crowd of sympa
thizcrs cheered him as he drove away
"My release is an acceptance of m;
attitude that my act was an act o
war," said McKeown. "Therefore, i

Fusillade of Bullets From
Unidentified Aviator's
Machine Gun Rains Down
Ou Party Eight Miles Out
Boat Riddled By Shots

Authorities At Newport
Looking For Guilty Flyer
PROVIDENCE, R. I., Aug. 8-- Sweep?
ing down Narragansett Bay with its
machine gun wide open and spraying
the water with a rain of bullets, an
unidentified airplane this afternoon
riddled and nearly sank a launch con?
taining five people, severely wounded
a girl passenger and slightly injured
a man.
Failing to observe frantic signals
from the boat, the plane sped on its
way. With the boat .sinking and the
girl in danger from loss of blood, the
launch party traveled eight-miles to
snore to reach medical assistance. The
wounded girl is Grace Buxton, twenty
: four years old, of Oakland Beach, near
: this city. .
The party bad left Oakland Beach
car:.- :.;> the da;,- to pick blueberries on
? Flope ?..land, eight miles distant from
the beach. Before returning they an
? chored a short distance from the island
i to go in bathing.
Unable to Escape Fusillade
The progress of the airplane, a large
frray flying boat of naval type construc?
tion, was watched by the parly, who
noted the machine-gun fire but sus?
pected no danger. As the crafl drew
nearer they became alarmed a*, its fail
i ure to change its course, but could n< t
' escape the rain of bullets.
Miss Buxton's shriek that she was
wounded was accompanied by the reali?
zation that the boat was riddled with
bullets. It at once began to fill.
Miss Buxton was shot, through the
right leg, while the bullet grazed her
left ?eg, leaving a deep wound. While
two of the party made a tourniquet
and applied first aid treatment, others
"manned a small pump in the boat.
Plane Disregards Signala
The plane, meanwhile, had settled
onto the water a mile away, and fran?
tic signals ?-ere made to sttraer its
attention. P rose quickly, however,
and resuming its firing, sailed away.
The party reached shore with the girl
m an axhausted condition.
Efforts were made at Newport to?
night to identify the plane as one of
? big fleet attached to the naval de?
stroyer squadon there, but. because of
the remote location of the air base no
definite information could be obtained.
The 1'nited States Marshal's office
here at once began an investigation t<.
determine the identity of the airmen.

derstood to have been reached to-day by
Republican members of the House

The total loss of revenue from these
proposed changes would be slightly
less than $50,000,000, and the reduc?

l'y." 77. Tribune's Wash igton Bureau
WASHINGTON, Aug. 8.- The Senate
to day passed the Willis-Campbell
anti-beer bill by a vote of .'if) to 20,
after an all-day discussion. An effort
to recommit t lie bill on a motion of
Senator Broussard failed by a vote of
23 to 38
The bill prohibits the prescribing of
beer by physicians and limits the ex?
tent to which whisky and wines may
be prescribed. The measure now goes
to conference and is expected to be
ready for the President's signature
within a few days.
An important development of the
day was the adoption after a long de?
bate, but without a rollcall of an
amendment by Senator Stanley, of
Kentucky, making it a misdemean i
'' ??' an enforcement officer to make
a war
d makii
stitutional right i. The Stanley amend?
ment applies not merely to the prohi?
bition law, but to any other law, It
was adopted in preference to a similar
amendment by Senator Reed, which ap
1 -;'''i only to the prohibition laws.
Sterling Accepts Amendment
rhe Stanley amendment was ac
ci ; ted by S, nator Sterl ing, who -. o
charge of tl ? bill, despite the fact he
and other Senators had for a time pro
' ested aga inst such action on 1 he
ground it would encourage bootlegging.
i Senate's action virtually disposes
he regulations drawn up' recently
by the Bureau of Internal Revenue to
govern the use of beer and wines as
medicine. Secretary of the Treasury
Mellon indicated to-night that the reg?
ulations never would be signed.
The failure of the opponent.;, of the
bill to secure more of a vote on the
motion to recommit caused some sur?
prise. It was caused partly by the ab?
sence of several Senators who favored
the motion to recommit and partly be?
cause, a- one of the wet leaders said.

passed the word around that the Tam?

Simultaneously Mr. Murphy an
nounced that the county executive com?

Awaits Action on Judiciary
Mr. Murphy sprang a surprise on
the executive committee, which ha,i
been called to meet at 4 o'clock, by
postponing the meeting until 1 o'clock
to-day. When asked about the sud?
den shift he said something about a
mistake' by the stenographer jh making
the meeting day Monday instead of
The real reason was discovered b_v
the district leaders, who tilled the main
office at Tammany Hall, before they
broke away from the Wigwam. It was
that Mr. Murphy was waiting to see if
the Republicans would send word to
him that they stood ready to indorse
Judges Mulqueen and Talley of the
Court of General Sessions for renom?
ination, and Judges La Fetra and Va
lente of the City Court, whose terms
are expiring, in exchange for an in?
dorsement of Judge Morris Koenig,
Republican, of the Court of General
Sessions, who was appointed by Gov?
ernor Miller and who will be named
in succeed himself by the Republicans.
The Republican leaders smiled at the
inequality of the sujrgest ?on and little
vas heard of the matterat the national

Major Henry H. Curran, Repub?
lican President of the Borough of
Manhattan, who has been designated
nominee for Mayor of New York by
the coalition forces opposed to Tam?
many Hall, opened the campaign
last night with a smashing attack on
Mayor John V. Hylan.
President Curran's first campaign
speech was delivered at the head?
quarters of the 10th Assembly Dis?

Olive Stott Gabriel, associate district
leader who, until recently was 1 a
Guardia's leading woman backer.
"If the City of New York was a pri?
