London, Feb. 21. Great Britain Is

and commercially, Bays the American
Chamber of Commerce of London In
a statement referring to differences
in the financial position of Great
Britain and the Continental countries.
The chamber expresses tho belief that
tho recent unprecedented droD in
sterling exchange on America makes
it particularly desirable that tho best
opinions on each side of the Atlantic
concerning this question should bo
understood on the other side.
After a thorough discussion with
the leaders of British finance, Illumi
nated largely by the addresses of the
chairmen of the flvo leading British
banks to their stockholders In annual
meeting, the Chamber of Commerce
has prepared a message to the Ameri
can business public. The message follows:

Their stock consisted of leather

adverse criticism already has been di

Germany lu build airplanes and dirigi

cause of the fact that It would take
Germany but a little while to convert
these air craft to war use.
Article 1S of the Treaty of Ver

of Germany must 'not Include any mili

The chief objection of the French and
Italians to allowing Germany to make
munitions of war Is that fchft would thus
retain all the machinery necessary for
the production of guns of all slies. They
declare that It would be a most dlfllcult
thing to guarantee that Germany would
not divert the output of such plants to
national use rather than export trade.

er (Fla.), Henderson (.Nev.), wugent
(Idaho). Chamberlain (Ore.), Gore
.(Okla.), Myers (Mont), Shields (Tenn.),
Smith (Ga.), and Trammell (Fla.). On
previous ballots senators Asnurst,
Fletcher, Henderson and Nugent had
stood steadfast against any quallflca
tions of the treaty.
The voting ended a day of debate at
all .times decidedly spicy, sometimes
verging on the sensational. It was
opened by Senator Walsh (Mont), who
took exception to remarks by Sena
tor Borah (Idaho) yesterday. Senator
Walsh Insisted that the Issue ln tha
campaign wouia De not on tne question
of league or no league, as Senator Borah
had said, but between a Kepuoucan can
didate pledged to ratification with the
Lodge reservations ana a .Democratic
candidate favoring ratification with
either the Hitchcock reservation or
others rather stronger but yet milder
than the Lodge aeries.
Senator Smith' (Ga.) suggested that
the solution would be to have the Re
publicans nominate a candidate who
would pledge himself to withdraw torn
the League of Nations.
Johnson Accepts Challenge.
This was an obvious allusion to Sen
ator Johnson (Cal.), the one candidate
who ls seeking the Presidential nomina
tion on such a pledge. Mr. Walsh
promptly acquiesced, observing that Sen-
ami tiuu tiiuts a v-u u i u u ai0 aj-v 1 1 iuuiw
oughly consistent, He has opposed rati
fication from the beginning and In addi
tion 'has. promised that In case of ratifi
cation he, if elected President would im
mediately take steps to withdraw from
the league.
Senator Walsh approved this as at
least an Intelligent and straightforward
programme, but demanded to know how
the Republicans expected to reconcile
the Johnson type of Republican with
that of Ellhu Root who demands imme
diate ratification with the proviso that
we shall forthwith initiate measures for
tne revision of the covenant This
seemed to be a challenge to Senator
Johnson, who promptly accepted It

Washinciton, Feb. 21. By a major
ity of 100 votes, the Houso to-day
adopted tho conference report on tho
Esch-Cummlns bill, providing for the
regulation of the railroads after their
return to their owners on March 1, by"
Presidential proclamation.
The final vote, which was 250 to 150,
camo directly after the'House refused,
by 229 to 171, to send tho bill back to
I tha conferees for the elimination of
tho features against which tho strongest-objections
were lodged. Tho Dem
ocrats and labor representatives at
tacked the conference report for flvo
hours, but with virtually no effect.
Republican ranks stood virtually solid
for tho passage of the bill, and to them
must go tho credit for the passage of
legislation before March 1.
Action by tho Houso to-day, It Is
admitted, virtually assured that tho
mcasuro would bo in tho hands of tho
President for approval beforo March
1,-as present Indications are that tho (
Senate will approve the combined bill
by a decisive majority. Efforts will
be made to take up tho bill ln tho
Senate on Monday, but its considera
tion may be delayed until Tuesday.
Guarnutr Section, Attacked.
The, guaranty -and"- labor provisions
were the two sections agatnat which the
attack in the House was directed to-day".
The Democrats railed against the. guar
anty section, which provides that the 1
Interstate Commerce Commission shall
adjust rates so that the .carriers will re
ceive a-return of 6J per cent on their
aggregate property value, the claim be
ing made by Representative Barkloy
(Ky.), Representative Sims (Tenn.)
and others that the bill Irf Its present
form will mean Increased rates with do
creased efficiency, and that It is unfair
to thus favor the railroads.
The roll call showed that 205 Repub
licans and 45 Democrats had voted for
the conference report and that against
tho report there wero aligned' 125 Dem
ocrats and 23 Republicans. The roll

The most Interesting turn Is given
tho reorganization. Important as it is In
Itself, In Mr. Atterbury's announcement
that the new plans will be strictly in
accordance with military railroad op
eratlon as he learned it durlng'hls war
services In France.
Orders for the- reorganlxatlon will go
out from the office of President Samuel
Rea within a few days. Mr. Rea has
been reticent regarding the plan, but It
was explained that this was due to the
difficulty of getting offices for the new
divisional headquarters.
Other members of the board of dl
rectors discussed the change, withhold
Ing only the use of their names. One
of them said: "We have largo ter
minal facilities In every large city, but
we den't get the business. I am afraid
we are runnlnar the road to glvo a lot
of old employees a Job. Probably If
our old president A. J. Cassatt were
living he would revolutionize matters
In some way. Our trains and freight
cars run both ways, but unfortunately
they are nearly always empty."

Sptrial to The 8cv ami Ncit Yoik Herald.
Philadelphia, Feb. 21. Reports of
wholesale- retirement of older employees
of the Pennsylvania Railroad, which
was Indicated ln -the announcement of
the reorganization plan and Vice-President
Atterbury's call for "new blood,"
were discounted by officers of the com
pnny herro to-night One of tho officers
said so far as he knew only three old
employes had been put on the pension
list He did not believe there were to be
sweeping changes of personnel.
This officer also eald the report that
the Pennsylvania was to be organized
along military lines undoubtedly arose
from the fact that Vice-President At
terbury, who Is ln charge of the reorgan
ization, was for two years commander
of the Army Transportation Corps. In
France, serving with tho rank of Brigadier-General
on the General Staff. In
this post he had command of 00.000 en
