Tho fact that Mrs. Pago had written a note to an officer of tho hotel, di recting him to deliver the key to her safe deposit box to Stoneham & Co., New York brokers, and also that be side her be i lay a copy of yesterday's Wall Street Journal, led detectives to believe that she had become despon dent over financial matters and the money market's decline.

JAPS VIEW WAR TO CRUSH RED IN FAR EAST SORE Bolshevist Wave Seen En gulfing Siberia and North China. NO' TERRITORY DESIRE Would Have Taken Land Before if Wished To, Premier Says. "ALLIES JUST WAKING UP" Military Chiefs In Tokio Say They Long Urged Action Now Unavoidable. By a Staff Comtpontent of Tna Sun and Ntw Yobk Hcsald. Copyright. 1S. by Tm Sen and Nxw Yobs lllBAM). Tokio. Feb. S (delayed). Japan faces the prospector having a most unwelcome and costly war thrust upon her now that tiio rest of tho Allies begin to show Blgns of Anally recog nizing the true etate of affairs in Si beria. Despite the fact that Japanese mili tary leaders 'havo long advocated more vigorous action and have re peatedly expressed their readiness to restore order, they and the people generally regret that the time for no tion really has come, for the Japa nese realize that it is to be a war to defend themselves from Bolshevism which is creeping steadily eastward and threatens to engulf all of eastern Siberia and northern China unless an Impassable banrier Is erected against it. Also, Japan Is not too sanguine con cerning the outcome of so great and lonely an undertaking. It. means to her a great sacrifice of lives and money. There Is no assurance that It will be possible for her to recoup her financial expenditures. It Is both popular and easy for ob servers 10,000 miles from Siberia to rant about the gladness with which Japan will proceed on her mission of territorial conquest, but Premier Hara stated Japan's position In these no uncertain terms: "Japan has absolutely no territorial ambitions in Siberia, We will not take a single square foot of territory 'and the minute the Red menace is sottled Japan will withdraw every soldier." And this was emphasized by the state ment of Gem Ot,, commander In chief of the Japanese troops In Siberia, who said : "If Japan had any such alms In view she would not have watted until the present moment Had she wanted any thing In Siberia sho would have taken It long before this at any time that suited her convenience." At the same time the General said: Pence Is Only Aim. "It Is the truth that Japan has only one object in view and that Is not the annexation ot territory, nor the acquir ing of privileges, as slanderous tongues have raid, but It is to guarantee peace In the Far East. We understand that Japan alone Is unable to guarantee peace In the Immense Far East, and that It Is necessary for Japan to cooper ate with another largo power, like Rus sia." Reports reaching Tokio from the Eu ropean press Indicate that Continental imaginations at least have run ram pant. The representative English press seems to be mora temperate. It Is pointed out that Japan has never with drawn from any territory Into which she has ever sent a military expedition. On the other hand, no foreign Power has ever been able to stay In Russia, and bad as the situation Is to-day in Siberia municipal and provincial offi cials declare in no uncertain terms that any kind 'of foreign intervention is most unwelcome. It Is difficult to understand this atti tude of the Siberians who see Kolchak's anti-Bolshevik armies fleeing .eastward after suffering the loss of their Ameri can locomotives, a rasi quantity OI British army stores turned over to them and the general disruption of his army. What a feeble thing the whole Kol chak government has been is now being recognized as the Intrigues which honey combed the anti-Bolshevik structure are gradually uncovered. Just before the collapse of the Kolchak regime Major Joseph Lasles of the French army and for twenty-three years a member of the Chamber of Deputies said:. "I am not holding any briefs for the Bolsheviks, but they could not be worse than what the people of Siberia are now .suffering from Kolchak. The situation In Russia, especially. In the eastern sec tion, is going from bad to worse. Kol chak and his armies are doomed and it is good riddance." Ko Rnastan Poller. All nationals who have been in direct personal touch with the situation agree that only the Cxecho-Slovaks and the Japanese have made any real stand against the advance of the Rods. Un questionably the whole miserable mesa has been made well nigh hopeless through the lack of a Russian policy on the part of any of the Powers. The Czechs could have been more effective With sincere cooperation from Kolchak. snd the Japanese would hare keen more effective it they had had less considera tion for the Allies, with whom they were trying to act In concert All nationals in the Far East now stand aghast at the situation which threatens China. The long standing quar tet between the north and the south, the anti-foreign agitation by tho stu dents In the ports and the capital and the rising costs of living Have made China a fertile field for the Bolshevlkl to work. Once they get well into China the whole Far East will be thrown Into (such chaos that the results will be noth ing short of a world calamity. Every where In the East Occidentals are ask ing each other, "Why doesn't somebody do something?"

WILSON DOCTOR ADMITS STROKE Ccrchrno Congestion Followed hy Paralysis of Left Side, Says Dr. Young. BRAIN 'NEVER AFFECTED Condition Now Better Than Before Illness 3Iontal Vigor "Prodigious." Sp trial to Tub Sck asp Nnr Totx RriAto. Washington', Feb. 10. An inter view with Dr. Hugh II. Young of Johns Hopkins, printed to-day In the Baltimore Sun, caused a stir in Wash ington becouse it was tho first admls olon by one of tho President's physi cians publicly made that the Presi dent in October had suffered from a cerebral congestion, with Iresultant paralysis of the left side. Dr. Young in this interview Is quoted ns saying: "An you know, in October last wc diagnosed the President's case an cere bral thrombosis which affected hist loft 'arm" and leg, TH at ho time was his brain pbwer or .the extreme Vigor said lucidity of his mental process in tho slightest degree abated. This condi tion has from tho very first shown a steady, unwavering tendency toward resolution and complete absorption. Tho increasing utility of the left arm and leg, greatly Impaired at first, have closely followed upon this Improve ment Tho President walks sturdily now without pain and without fatigue, He uses tho slightly impaired arm, and more every day." Dr. Young was quoted aa saying fur ther that the President's mental vigor was simply prodigious; that in many ways he was In better shapo than be fore his Illness; that he could now work several hours a day without fatigue, and that the weather oftly was holding him back so far as hts public appearance is concerned. Dr., Young made It clear that he per mitted the quotation of these statements In ordor to relievo tho public mind. Dr. Grayson refused to comment on this Interview In any way, although he did not seem to be In the slightest degreo upset by It The condition or iTesioent wnson nas improved so much in the last few weeks as to give the greatest encouragement to his friends. There Is no question that Mr. Wilson is doing en Increasing amount of work every day, which al ready covers much ot the White House routine, and that ho 'looks better than he has in many months.

President Wil son will send to the Senate within the next few days the nomination of Robert Underwood Johnson to be Ambassador to Rome. This will be the first ot a number of Presidential appointments to fill present vacancies In the diplomatic service. The selection of a man for the post at Rome Is of crucial Importance at this time because of the relations existing between the United States and Italy growing out of the Adriatic problem. Mr. Johnson will succeed Thomas Nel son Pager who resigned because; as la known now, he differed from .the Presi dent as to the proper policy toward Italy In the peace negotiations. It is under Stood the President had considerable difficulty In getting Mr. Johnson to ac cept the post ' Mr. Johnson has taken an active part in the League to Enforce Peace and la regarded as being in sympathy with the President's ideas ot a League of Nations and. his other policies.

Throughout the brilliant ceremony nttendant on tho reassembling of Parliament lo-day and the address from the throno there stood among the members of the House of Lords and of tho Commons a man small of stature and gray, who wore a plain black coat and trousers that were slightly rumpled. In tho colorful surroundings the strange: would not have noticed him, and yet he was the central figure of the real drama. And when the King and Queen had laid asldo their robes of state and departed this man's hour came. It was then that David Lloyd Georgo began his address. He ridiculed the attacks which his opponents had previously launched at him and speaking without bitterness, for neither Labor nonany other pollti cal win?, he Insisted that the Coalition meaning himself held the responsl blllty. He defied the results of tho re cent bye-elections and declared for a plain, common sonso settlement of the British problems without party labels that is to say, without labels other than those of the Lloyd George Coali tion. Cheer forlrlab Plan. . ' Lloyd Georgi's announcement that he would at an early date Introduce a bill "to amend 'the provisions for the government of Ireland" following the early appearance of tho Home Rule measure, was greeted with cheers. Intense interest was exhibited by the House in the Premier's exposition of his policy with regard to Russia. He did not take the members fully Into his con fidence, but a fairly accurate lino on what he proposed attempting was to be drawn from his statement that "Bol shevism cannot be crushed by force of arms," and hts further remark, which typified English policy for centuries, "that having failed to restore Russia's sanity by force, I believe we can save her by trade." That the Premier favored a slacken ing of the pressure on Soviet Russia was made evident by his remark that the policy ot "a ring ot fire around Rus sia" was impossible, and that "the. Bal tic States were making peace with the Soviet and no nation apparently was willing to provide the. funds for a con tlnuance ot military operations." He admitted that the anti-Bolshevist mili tary efforts had failed; but said: "We had to give them a chance." Special significance was attached to hla warn ing "that the danger was -not all In Rus sia; there was serious cause 'for ap prehension, at home ; that we must fight anarchy with abundance." Challenges the Labor Party. The Premier challenged the Labor party tor Its stand on the high cost ot living, declaring that while labor's ad herents were complaining that many men were out of -work and there was a great shortage of houaes for working men, the reason was not because the houses could not be built, but because the trades union rules would not relax to permit adequate building. Then he turned to the Conservative Opposition, defying It to equal the rec ord of the Coalition In the matter of leglaUtlon. He paid a tribute to the Labor party organization and dofled the Tories to accomplish In coalition with Labor what he had done. whii th Premier's address was a Parliamentary achievement and had a tremendous effect U Is nevertheless true that he only fiostponed action on the momentous questions which con front the nation. However, he prom ised "tq take up in detail the measures iich h would propose to meet the various Issues. He defied Labor to pro duce a better irisn tan man me one which would be placed before, this Par liament warning them that they were leading stralgni 10 a repuouc in ire land. ..... The clarion call or uie iremiera neoch was that the nation return to normal, mauatry ana savings ne an nounced amid cheers that tho estimated budget showed that revenues not Oply. would meet expenditures, out tnat there would be a small balance to the good. He denounced profiteering and, turning to Labor's benches, declared that "the real Inflation of prices was dUe to the fact that money has not got the value that it had before the war." "This fact" ha declared, "not only is true here but It Is true in every coun try In the world. It Is the right ot the working people of this country to know that when anybody tells them that high prices are due to profiteering the man who says it does not know what he la talking about or else he Is trying to deceive. .

Administra tion leaders havo become disturbed over tho threatening turn taken In ne gotiatlons between the Railroad Ad ministration and representatives of 2,000,000 railroad workers. Tho Department of Justice was brought into conferences between Railroad Administration ofllclals and the White House this afternoon, mid this lent color to. reports that the in junction powers of the Government again might be brought into play to halt a strike regarded as illegal and as a menage to tho public safety and welfare. The Lever act, which for bids any agreement to Interfero with the 'production or distribution of ne cessities, still Is In cjfect. President Barker in a statement given out in Detroit, however, took pains to point out that the uhion had considered the possibilities of injunctive action and discounted them. "White Home Also Consulted'. The nature of the conference be tween the Department of Justice offi cials and those of the Railroad Ad ministration was not made known.

Another nhase of the situation Is a hint contained In a despatch from Cleve land, made Dubllo to-night, stating tnai the Trainmen's Union have abrogated the agreement that a thirty day notice must be served be-fore" cancellation ot their arrangement with the Raiiroaa Administration.

Kansas probably will prose cute in the criminal courts tho national, State and local officials of the railway maintenance of way and shop laborers union if they call a strike in Kansas, it was announced to-day by at torneys connected with the in dustrial relations courts. The proposed strike order would be a violation of the new State law. - Gov.

DEMOCRATS TO FIGHT R.R. BILL Sims, Houso Leador, Announces He Will Not Sign Confer ence Report. BACKED BY COLLEAGUES Object to Guaranteed Income and Continuance of U. S. Rental Paynicnts. Seeeiat to Taa Smt A!n Kw. Yonx HiBAtD. .tfWAittoroNt'Feb. 10. House Dem ocrats nave 'determined to ngnt tne conference report on the railroad bill mainly because of the provisions that rates shall.be adjusted to guarantee the roads a return of 5 per cent on their aggregate property value and that standard rental guaranteed dur ing Federal operation shall bo con tinued six months after the return of the roads to private ownership. Representative Sims (Tenn.), leader of tho Houso Democratic conferees, haa Informed the minority leader of the House that he will not sign the conferenco report because ot these guarantee provisions, and will file a minority report In protest against their inclusion in permanent railroad legislation. Aa a result of a conference ot House Democratic leaders, It became known that the position of Mr. Sims will be backed and made a party Issue when the bill as agreed to by the Senate and House conferees Is submitted to the House ,for action. This probably will be the latter part of the week. Repre senatlve Kltchln. former Democratic leader, and other prominent memoera of the nartv have made 'known their Intentions to wage a determined fight against the measure on the floor. The position of the leading Democrats Is that the railroad measure should contain no guarantee provisions on the grounds that this in reality amounts to a Government subsidy for private business. ' The Democrats are claiming that their purpose In opposing the report Is not to prevent the passage of railroad legis lation before March 1, the date set by President Wilson for return of the roads to their owners, but. solely to eliminate the guarantee provisions from the meaa ure. Mr. Sims, however, has advocated a form of Government ownership and has opposed the return of the roads to their owners at this time, even to tne exten: of supporting the proposal, of organized labor that the roads should be held for a period of two years. What effect the Democratic fight will have In delaying the passage ot the leg. lslatlon so necessary to tne return ot tne roads Is problematical. House Repub lican leaders are determined to pass tho railroad bill In ample time to aUow the handing back ot the roads with the least disturbance nosslble. Nothlna- less than chaos will result If legislation is not passed. The parliamentary nrocedure of the House la such that the Republican, by their majority, can force through the measure over the Democratic protests with little delay, but should a similar move be made by Senate Democrats a filibuster might block the measure. .

BORAH OPENS ATTACK Assails Document on New Line of Economic Con sequences. DEBATE SET FOR MONDAY Irrcconcilablcs Admit tThoy nave Slim Chance of Ef fecting Killing. Special to Tna SDN axd Kbit Tom Hesaid. Washington, Feb, 10. As tho new discussion of the treaty opened to-day In the Bcnato with a vigorous speech hy Senator Borah (Idaho) against its cconomlo consequences, a strong Inti mation was thrown out at the White House that President Wilson Is not necessarily opposed to compromise on a reservation programmo that will bring about ratification. From an official source close to the President came tho Information that Mr. Wilson's letter to Senator Hitch cock (Neb.), acting Democratic leader, has been misinterpreted and as a mat ter of fact the President meant to convey the impression thr.t tho com promise provision of Article X. sent to him by the Nebraska Senator "was acceptable If it was necessary to rati fication, even though It might have a chilling effect on the other signatories. The President's, letter was cryptic in this respect,and was variously under stood at the Capitol. But to-day ' talk of compromise at tho White Hc-uso has put a new light on the situaUon. If. caused some of the Republican Ir reconc'llnbles in tho Scnato to admit this afternoon that they now have rather a slim chance of being able to kill tho treaty. .,. One IteeenUy DroMed. The- reservation to which reference was made at the" White House to-day is not the original Interpretative reserva tion offered by Senator Hitchcock In November, but is the one drafted by Re publican and Democratic members of the rccept bi-partisan conference to which, however. Senator Lodge (Mass.), Re publican leader, did not give his assent If the Prea dent Is willing to accept this compromise, that will be recognised by the leaders ot both sides as the begin ning of tho end. The only houe of the Irreconcliablcs for comnlete defeat of tho treaty has been based upon the stubborn determina tion of the President and his followers to accent no reservations changing the character of tho document, especially no impairment of the obligation of this coun try to protect the territorial Integrity and political independence ofthe other league members. The proposed compromise res ervation to which the President appar ently is willing to give his consent it need be, limits this obligation substan tially although it does not destroy It en tirely, .as tne L.oasc reservation aoes. Senator Borah, addressing the Senate, said i "The solvency and the very Ufa of Europe depend on the acceptance of one of two alternatives: Either Europe must be saved by reason of Germany's pay(pg huge Indemnities so nuge that she can never pay them or else it must be saved by continuing loans and perpetual chari ty from the United States." Dlacnaaton on New Lines. Senator Borah's argument was rein forced by Senator Knox (Pa.). As Tun Sun and Niw York Hiralb correspond ent predicted even before the treaty was brought back td the Senate, the discussion starts now on entirely new lines. Attack Is aimed against the cconomlo consequences of the treaty. The political considerations are being thrust to the background. Aside from the oratory In which these views were urged, the Senate dealt with the treaty only to the extent of re ceiving the document back from the Foreign Relations- Committee, with the Lodge reservation attached and a reso lution of ratification embracing them favorably reported. The committee was In session about an hour and a half, but the treaty busi ness was a formality occupying only a few minutes. The Senate's Instructions left the committee little to do. These instructions were to report the treaty back to the Senate without any amend ments and with the Lodge reservations. The committee talked chiefly about the probabilities attending the Senate s con sideration of th railroad conference re nort It is conceded that ns sooh as this comes out the Senate must give It al most exclusive attention until It Is dis posed of, In order to open the right ot way for return of the roads to their owners March 1. The treaty therefore will have to wait. Accordingly when Senator Lodge early tn the Senate session presented the committee's favorable report o the treaty with the ratification resolution, he asKed agreement that it should be taken up for consideration next Monday, -mere was no objection. If the railroad meas ure Is not out of the way by that time the treaty may be displaced temporarily. nut although it Is not formally oeiore the Senate yet, the treaty promptly be came the domlnatl'ig theme. Senator Knox was In his seat for the first time in a long period, having heen Kept away by Illness in his family. His part In the discussion was oniy incmoniai, but it was highly significant Discusses Hoover's Statement. Senator Borah used as his text Her bert Hoover and the recent statement of tho Hoover attitude toward puwio questions.
