Wirth Is Certain to Retain
of Bavaria to Council
Also Expected This Week
By Joseph Shaplen
Special Cable In The Tribune

BERLIN, Sept. 25.?The new govern?
ment ccahtion intended to bring the
People's party into an alliance with
the Centrists and Socialists will be
launched this week. The first step
will be the calling together of the party
leaders to-morrow by Chancellor
Wirth. At this conference tentative
proposals for rebuilding the cabinet
wiil be discussed.
There is no possibility of Chancellor
Wirth's retirement, the Majority So
ciaMsts havir,;-- made this clear at their
convention at Gocrlitz yesterday when
Otto Wells, chairman, stated emphati?
cally that the Socialists were deter?
mined to stand by Dr. Wirth and were
bot willing to, enter into any combina?
tion entailing his crimination.
Georg Bernhard, writing in to-day's
"VossiscHe Zeitung," emphasizes this
point. He says:
"Tho general offensive undertaken
against Chancellor Wirth on a wide
front has been shattered. The game
is up. The new great coalition is as?
sured. It is impossible as yet to out?
line the new German government, but
indications are that a reconstruction
of Minister-President Stegerwald's
Prussian government will precede
changes in the national cabinet.
"One thing seems certain?Dr. Wirth
will retain the chancellorship, and he
also probably will retain the finance
portfolio until h i s taxation program
goes through the Reichstag. Should
the conferences which begin' to-morrow
result satisfactorily Dr. Wirth will
present the matter of a reconstruction
cabinet to President Ebert.
"Another development of great im?
portance expected this week is the
/ lifting of the state of martial law in
j Bavaria and the return of Bavaria to
/ constitutional government. The con
f ferences of the last three days be?
tween Count Lcrchenfcld, the new
Bavarian Premier, . and Chancellor
Wirth have resulted in a complete un?
derstanding. Without, rubbing it in,
the Chancellor has forced Bavaria to
capitulate all along tho line.
"Thus the long-standing conflict be?
tween Munich and Berlin may be re?
garded as ended."

LONDON, Sept. 25.**? In both interna- ?
tional and domestic affairs this week j
promises to bring forth decisions of|
profound importance to every class in
Great Britain. Premier Lloyd George
lis still on his vacation in the Scottish
Highlands, but he is giving personal at?
tention to three pressing problems.
The government has had no greater j
task in the last three Years than solv- ?

Finally, important decisions must be
made regarding the Washington con

.lobs Probicm Most Pressing
Naturally the British are most inter?
ested in the problem of unemployment,
for it affects them intimately and is
easily visualized, but they are also
following the Irish negotiations closely. '
Thus far, except among the labor lead- ?
ers, little interest has been shown in
the plans for the Washington confer?
ence, but some of the newspapers and
weeklies arc beginning to emphasize
the importance of the gathering Presi- ;
dent Harding has called.
The "Sunday Observer," which usu?
ally reflects the government view,
"The. conference must succeed be- |
cause, for all the parties to it, it
were better that it had never been
called than that it should .fail. And
it must suc-eed if the world is to get ?
I on. The discussion in the assembly '
representing fifty nations of the world j
at Geneva shows that the world is I
waiting for it."
The "Observer" calls the armament :
1 conference a second peace conference
?"America's recovery of the initiative ;
, which was let go when Wilson lost ,
, power." But the "Observer" states
; flatly that there must be an under- :

First Interest in Far East

J Britain's first interest will be a po

more or less disturbed about the pro?
posed renewal of the Anglo-Japanese
alliance. When the alliance was first
made there seemed, so far as could be
observed from here, to be good reasons
for it. Renewal this year, however,
seemed to have no object with which
the United States was in sympathy.
Many of the yellow papers painted the
thing frankly as an alliance against
the United States.
The truth was that the allisnce ?rave
Japan a feeling of security in actions
in the Far East, and an assuredness
that the United States, no matter how
it might protest against violations of ?
what this government thought was ?
right and proper in that part of the
world, would never go to the extent of ,
Not. only was Japan's backbone stif
fened by the alliance, but, because of
Cue fact that Britain was the only other |
country in the world besides the United j
States which could seriously threaten j
Japan, and particularly the only one
which had largo interests in the Par ?
East, and her alliance with Japan made I
it difficult for her to make serious !
protests against any of Japan's actions, I
the United States was left as the only!
country in the world which could and
would voice these protests.
Therefore, in Japan, the United
States has seemed for some time to be
the only nation in the world which was
standing athwart what Japan regarded j
as her natural path to the accomplish- j
ment of her ambitions. Anti-American |
feeling, inflamed by the jingo press.
was rapidly mounting as a result of j
Imperial Conference Resulta
But then came the imperial confer-1
ence at London, and Harding's oppor?
tunity. At this conference of the pre?
miers of the British Dominions it was
at once manifest that the renewal of
the Anglo-Japanese alliance, which was
to expire next year, but which runs
on until it is denounced, was bitterly
opposed by four of the great dominions.
The Premiers of Canada, Australia,
New Zealand and South Africa all de?
clared in public statements?not con?
tent with their assertions inside the
conference ? that the Anglo-Japanese
alliance must not be renewed except on
terms satisfactory to the United States.
These dominions naturally have sym?
pathised with the United States on
American opposition to Japanese im?
migration and land holding, and they
wanted to make sure that in any con?
troversy which might arise between
Japan and the United States the British
Empire was not found arrayed on the
side of Japan. Mean Lime a sentiment
in England itself began to grow against
the alliance, greatly to the embarrass?
ment of the British Foreign Office.
which felt under great obligations to
Japan, and to the Japanese govern?
ment, which saw the advantages to
Japan from the Anglo-Japanese alli?
ance rapidly blowing out of the window.
Finally it was decided that the best
thing to do for every one concerned was
to do nothing at all, and the confer?
ence adjourned with the understanding
that the alliance would not be renewed
for another definite term of years, but
on the other hand it would run along
subject to the provision that it must
be denounce'! one year before it could
be actually abrogated.
So that the British Foreign Office
found itself rather impotent to carry
i ut what it regarded as its obligations,
and the Japanese found the Anglo
Japanese alliance a cracked staff which
might easily snap just at the moment
it might be most sorely needed.
But, the treaty not having been de?
nounced, the situation was still un?
satisfactory to the United States, es?
pecially as this government found it
practically impossible to achieve by
diplomatic means the restraint of
Japan desired in the Far East.
It was then that President Harding
proposed the conference, hoping to ac?
complish what has been outlined above,
and also the agreement by all the coun?
tries 1o cut down their expenditures
on armaments, so that taxes in all the
countries involved might be reduced.
At this point it is well to point out
that the greatest handicap with which
this country goes into the conference
is the pacifist sentiment. This govern?
ment is better able to keep up with the
armament race than any country which
will be represented at the conference.
It wants t"> reduce its own taxes, but
the need for so doing is not as im?
perative as in Britain, Japan, France
nr Italy. The pacifist sentiment, how?
ever, intimations from foreign capitals
indicate, is being counted up jn to force
this government to make concessions,
Japan is anxious to placate this
country on the surface if not in ac?
tuality. Only by this method can she
be sure of a genuine renewal of the
Anglo-Japanese alliance. But Japan,
which joined the conference probably
with more reluctance than any other
nation, will be fighting a defensive bat?
tle from the beginning.
She wants to hold on to everything
she ).*as gained and give up nothing.
She would like to refuse to agree to
every one of the points enumerated.
Further, she would like to complete
lier present naval building program,
despite the tremendous taxation it is
imposing on her people. This program
is called the "eight and eight" program
because it is grouped around eight new
battleships and eight new battle-cruis?
ers, all of which would be completed
by 1928. Indications from Japan are
that she will tight to the last ditch to
avoid abandoning this program.
China in the conference is the
saddest spectacle of all. She is not
even capable of having spokesmen
stand up and speak for a united China.
The Peking government is recogniied,
and will be represented, but the im?
portance of her representatives will be
tremendously discounted by the fact
that South China, through the Canton
government, is repudiating Peking and
declaring Peking has no right to rep?
resent the Chinese people at all.
China is anxious about Shantung,
and about the maintenance of the open
door. She fears and distrusts Japan,
based on long exp?rience, and wants to
be guaranteed that Japan will not be
permitted to seize lier territories.
Her only weapon, thou-jh that has been
a rather potent ono for the last year,
is the boycott against ?II Japanese

Hope for Better Relations
Welcoming Ambassador Warren, the j
newspaper "Yomi-Uni Shimbun," said |
tiie Japanese hoped he would do much j
toward improving relations between his I
country and Japan. He was urged to
grasp the sentiments of the Japanese
people generally instead of those of
only a limited section, chiefly repre?
sented by the aristocracy.
"When Americans understand what
\ the Japanese, people really are rela?
tions will undergo a marked improve
I ment," the paper declared.
It is understood that Japan's general
? attitude toward the November confer
i encc will be that of co-operation with
; the United States in the underlying
j spirit of the meeting, but in connection
' with the tentative agenda suggested by
the United States Japan may propose
mutual cassation of fortifications in the
Pacific, and with reference to Far East?
ern political matters propose tho open?
ing of the interior of China for the
| purposes of trade and residence and

\ In this connection attention is called
to the contribution of Premier Hara to

! declared that Japan was prepared to
i discuss at Washington such fundamen
, tal theories as were necessary to se
| cure the opening of the world to all
? races and the removal of artificial bar
i riers for the security of the life, of
j all mankind, lie added that tho calam
j ?ties of war would not be entirely re
, moved until inequalities among na
i tions were removed.
Remove Economic Barrier
So long as one race looked down on
other races, raised unwarrantable, bar?
riers and gave discriminatory treat?
ment, he pointed out, it could hardly be
said that the cause of war had ceased
to exist. .No race, he asserted, should
adopt measures calculated to compel
the suicide of another race, while the
supply of materials necessary for the
clothing and feeding of mankind should
i be distributed by the various nationals
as equally as possible,
"If the whole efforts of a nation
must be devoted to obtaining food and
] no surplus energy is left for the ad

! the Premier, "the future of that na
