Copyright, 19M, bv The Sun and Nsw York Hhialp, Pahis, March 17. -The Allies nro pre paring n noto In reply to the American communication regarding Hussln, wherein they will Bay that they will be glad to give consideration to the American views on the subject, but will suggest that the dnto of March 20 for the conference on Russia, as was Bturacstcd In tho Ameri can note, !a too early. Apparently the allied desire behind this Is to nwnlt the outcome of tho visit of the Soviet com mittee to England In connection with tho proposed cooperative trading scheme nml some private Investigations now going on before holding tho conference which President Wilson wants. The American note has made a good Improsnlon here, because President Wllson'a position against resuming dip lomatic relation with the Soviet Gov ernment Is In thorough accord with the French view, whereas In French For eign Office circles tho belief seems per sistent that Premier Lloyd George Is planning some kind of diplomatic recog nition of the Soviet. This Is one reason why the French are showing Increasing coldness toward the League of Nations' Investigation commission, whereof i.oth Ing has been heard since last Satur day's mooting. Tho scheme now seems to be nveetlng with ronie difficulties, like other allied projects. The French have Just begu-i their first negotiations with tho Bolshcvlkl, but this merely concerns prisoners. Ite gardlng Hussion trade, tho French Fay that they have nothing to sell to Kussla and eirpect to buy very little of her. Their ntUtude Is In strong contrast with that of the British and Itnllans and to Homo extent the Americans. RECOGNITION OR NO TRADE. SAY REDS Little Interest in League Mis sion, but Welcome Others. Bv the Anociated rre. Moscow, Marcb 11. The approaching visit of the Commission of tho League of Nations Jo Soviet Hussla Is arousing little Interest and discussion here. Rus sia has no confidence In the league, ac cording to the Soviet leaders. Leo Kamaneff. president of tho Moscow Soviet, discussing tho League of Nations, said to-day: 'The league has capitulated. It has lost Its original significance. It con tains no vital principles applicable to the new organization of society, and It Is created In tho interest of the old Im perialism." Referring to the projected visit of the League Commission, Kameneft had this to say : "We attach no particular Importance to the matter. The bona fide commis sions of other countries desiring to make nn impartial investigation will be wel come. We will make no special prepara Spring frock must prove itself for immediate wear by bein& a separate fur as without one. . T- - J tion nnd will nrrRnge no fetes for the 1,1'aguo Commission, but wo shall af ford facilities lo see everything. nsk the same right, however, to send our commissions to other countries. "Our visitors should not forget that tho Russian revolution Is only two years old. Our organization Is new. I-ranco took thirty yenrso to establish stablo conditions after her revolution," Jresldent ICamcneff expressed the opinion that no resumption of trade in tercourse with Western Europe would bo posslblo without tho re-estubllshmcnt of diplomatic relations, "Wherever It leads, tho exact slttia Hon must bo defined," eald Kameneft n conclusion. "It will remain uncertain so long ns the Entente makes commer cial advances to Russia while support Ing Imperialism In Poland." Chairman Mclnlchanskt of the Coun cil of Moscow Trade Unions, another Soviet leader who Is frankly uninter ested In tho visit of tho commission, snld the leaders of the Menshevlkl party believe that the resumption of diplo matic relations with tho "capitalistic nations will lend to bring nbout hour geols action dangerous to the Menshe vlsts n well as to Communism, lie Menshevlkl party, however, represents but a small fuctlon In Russia. to-da. Tho majority of Intelligent opinion In Russia, so far as careful inquiry Indi cates, regards tho position of the Gov ernment as being stronger to-day than at any time since the revolution. The belief also exists that economic needs will force F.urope nnd Russia to make mutual concessions. The attitude of tho United States to ward Russia Is the subject of much speculation and Interest.

As Foon ns the court opened Bergdoll's counsel declared no defence would be en tered, because the defence believed the Government had failed In Us case. The counsel asked 'he court to state the limit of punishment in tho event that the ac cused pleaded guilty. This the court re fused. Then Licut.-Col. Charles C.
