Paris, April 17. Great Britain,
France, Italy and .Belgium will join in
I nato to Germany demanding that
plie must comply immediately with
the disarmament stipulations of tho
Treaty of Versailles, under threat of
the rees'tabllshmcnt of the allied eco
nomic blockade. Tho note probably
will bo sent before the Ban Remo con
ference of the allied Premiers assem
bles Monday.
While tho note will not go as far as
the French would have It bo, Inas
much as they would have it cover tho
whole treaty, It will bo more compre
hensive than tho mero voicing of allied
opposition to the return to power of
the German reactionary elements.
All the Allies are agreed on the com
plete disarmament of Germany, The
German r&quest for a, three months'
extension of tho tlmo limit for the re
duction of tier forces will bo refused.
The treaty dsmanded this reduction by
April 10.
The French wanted the new ultimatum
to cover the coal and economic clauses
of the treaty. However, this question
will bo left to the San Remo conference
for discussion. For tho present the
threat against Germany will be In con
nection with disarmament only. How
ever, there will be coupled with the
threat the plain elatenunt "that 'the' Al
lies will not tolerate any reactionary
Government In Germany.
further, the note Is designed to show
the Germans that the Allies continue to
act lu accord.
Ily suggesting this move originally and
then permitting the French to amplify
it somewhat the British diplomatists
scrm to have skilfully relngratlated
themselves with the ' French. Tills Is

uude of the French press-during the
laat few days, ft any chance for dls

uward the economlo clauses of the
.eaty. So far as the military clauses
.ru concerned the French have brought
' cir allies to accept France's demand

Sxti Remo, Italy," April 17. Whether
the United States will bo represented
at the conferenco of the allied nations
called to meet in San Remo was a
question which had not been answered
hero as the chief representatives, of the
Powers gathered to-day for the sessions
which are to begin Monday. Premier
Xlttl of Italy, who reached San Remo
a day ahead of time to receive the
delegation's of the allied nations as they
arrived, expressed ignorance as to
whether an American delegate or ob
server would attend.
The conference will have as its prp
gramme an endeavor to settlo three or
four of the great problems now dis
turbing Europe. One of these is what
action shall be taken respecting the
carrying out of the treaty of Versailles,
.V) that it may be made plain to Ger
many that the Allies regard it as a
binding instrument. Others are the de
termination of tho future of the Turkish
Empire and the final framing of the
Hungarian peace treaty. The Adriatic
settlement is also a possible subject for
consideration, while the international ex
change problem Is another likely to be
considered.
No definite programme for the taking,
up of subjects pressing for solution has
been arranged and the various subjects
will be brought to the front, according,
to the Judgment of the Premiers.
Premier NItti was at the railway sta
tion before 9 o'clock this morning- to re

bassador to Italy. Premier Lloyd George

BRITISH PREMIER
IN MURDER CHARGE
Lloyd George Accused of
Causing MacCttrtain's Death.
Cobk, Ireland, April 17. Charges of
wilfua murder were brought against
Premier Lloyd George to-day in the ver
dict of the Jury in the inquest Into the
death of Mayor MacCurtaln of this city,
who was assassinated last monin.
The verdict also charges Viscount
French, Lord Lieutenant of, Ireland: Ian
Mocpherson, former Chief Secretary,
and several police Inspectors with mur
der. The text of the verdict reads:
"W find that tho late Alderman
Thomas MacCurtaln, Lord Mayor of
Cork, died from shock and hemorrhage
caused by bullet wounds; that he was
wilfully murdered under circumstances
of the most callous brutality: that the
murder was organized ana camea oui
by the Royal Irish Constabulary, offi
cially directed by the British Govern
ment, and we return a verdict of wilful
murder against David Lloyd George,
Prime Minister of England; Lord
French, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland ; Ian
Macpherson. late Chief Secretary far
Ireland ; Acting Inspector General Smith
of the Royal Irish Constabulary, Divis
ional Inspector Clayton of the Royal
Irish Constabulary. District Inspector
Swanzy and some unknown members of
the Royal Irish Constabulary."

crime to the hands of the police caused

course would be expected to be placed

Elaborate military precautions and
the counsel of cooler heads among the
Sinn Fein leaders, It Is believed, will
forestall serious trouble here. It Is re
ported that the leaders who have ad
monished against a demonstration have
met with much opposition from the more
raritMLl elements, fiomo reports go so
far as to say that the leaders have
caused the arrest or some oi me wnaer

LOOT LOFTS OF
$100000 FURS
Thieves Overhaul Two Stocks
and Removo Selections in
Motor Trucks.
POLICE STATION NEAR
Other Thefts Come to Light
Despite Silence of tho
Detectives.
Reports that burglars wero holding
carnival in the fur district were sub
stantiated yesterday when it was
learned that upward of $100,000 in lino
pelts had been stolen from two estab
lishments early Friday morning, and
news of numerous other thefts perpe
trated. In tho same neighborhood re
cently have been suppressed by the
police.
The largest of Friday's robberies,
which was the talk of the wholesale fur
market yesterday, was committed In
the rooms ot Edgar Lehman, on the
streot floor at 45 West Twenty-seventh
street. The loot Is said to have Included
1,600 mink skins, l.eoo Hudson seals and
0 stone martens, all .of a wholesale
value of upward of $75,000.
The other haul, which Is Relieved to
have been made by the same gang, was
from Dattelbaum-Brothers of 130 West
Twenty-ninth street There between
$29,000 and $30,000 worth of similar skins
were stolen.
Dattelbaum Brothers are on the block
directly behind the West Thirtieth
street police station. In the upper part
of which are the offices of the detec
tives of the Third Inspection district
Lehman's Is only a couple of blocks
away and In the same precinct.
In both robberies the methods em
ployed seem to have been the same, the
kthleves having entered from tho rear
by forcing a w:lndow. From tho bulk of
the loot it la supposed they used a
truck In carting It away.
In each place tho thieves went over
the goods apparently with great care,
and showed excellent Judgment In mak
ing their selections.
Several fur merchants said yesterday
that the robberies in their district are
usually followed within twenty-four or
forty-eight hours by a visit from a rep
resentative of some pAvate detective
agency, who will suggest retaining four
or five operatives at a minimum of $10
a day each to trace the stolen furs and
'get them back." 'Whether the efforts to
get the furs back over meet with any
success could not be ascertained.
In compliance with the rules laid down I
by the Mayor and .'he Police Commis
sioner, the police In the West Thirtieth
street station, which has Jurisdiction of
practically all of the wholesale fur dis
trict, refused to discuss these robberies
yesterday or even to admit that they
had heard of them. Detectives of the
Third Inspection district took a similar
attitude. The robbsd parties were also
reticent. Every one else In the district,
however, seemed ready to furnish details
of the thef is.

PHILADELPHIA, April 17.
John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who
is "out on the road" for the In
terchurch World Movement,
dropped into Philadelphia to-day
and urged a return to simplified
living to create healthy, satis
factory conditions.
Immediately he was asked
what he thought of tho "overall
movement" and replied:
"A good idea."
"When aro you going to wear
them?" n reporter parried.
Mr. Rockefeller scrutinized his
interviewer closely and said :
"J notice that you are not
wearing them yet, but I will put
them on as soon as. you do."
And tho "overall movement"
may write down the name of
John D. Rockefeller, Jr., as one
of its members.
Indications yesterday wero that
within a few more days tho entire
country will be aressed up in overalls
in protest against the cost of the
dressier kinds of clothing. There were
unmistakable evidences that the fad
has taken hold in New York, and re
ports from Chicago and cities nearer
and further away told of Mayors and
Pollco Commissioners and Sheriffs as
well as business men appearing right
out In public in the ill fitting gar
ments. As a matter of fact, Chicago re
ported Itself in the overall grip with
clubs springing up all over tho town.
Department stores were doing a big
business.
From Newark, N. J., came the news
yesterday that the Adelphus Club, an
organization of lawyers, had discov
ered the "creased" overall. The mem
bers of the club appeared in garments
Into which the crease had1 been sewed.
At about the same moment the wires
brought tho tlduica that down In Ports
mouth, Va., the Rev. Edward K. Denton,
pastor ot a prominent Methodist church,
had announced that he will preach in
overalls to-day and that men similarly
attired and women enveloped In bunga
low aprons will receive his especial bene
diction and welcome.

Judge Kennedy of the Common Pleas

So far only one protest, outside of
clothing manufacturers and dealers, Is
on record against tho overalls idea. This
was voiced by Gov. Btckett of North
Carolina, who assailed the movement
ds ono likely to work hardship to farm-
ers and others, who wear overalls all the
,tmei by fcrcwg up tho prices of the
garments. Tho stand of the Governor
was approved by the Southern Dry

Chicago, April 17. A demand for
unqualified recognition of tho Chicago
Yardmen's Association as the governing
body of tho railway switchmen and
yardmen and tho, calling of a meeting
of "outlaw strike" chiefs for next Mon
day to consider arrangements by which
the strikers might return to work;,
wero the outstanding features here to
day of the railwayman's walk-out.
While it is difficult to reconcile these
two developments, John Grunau,
president of tho Chicago Yardmen's
Association, admitted to The Sun
and New York Herald to-day that he
was anxious to end tho strike.
Grunau said that the meeting for next
Monday had been called to discuss plans
whereby the strikers would be permitted
to resume work without forfeiting their
seniority rights with tho railroads. He
added that the meeting also would en-
doavor to reconcile these two seemingly
Irreconcllablo developments of to-day,
whereby tho men might be confirmed in
their old nosltions and at the same time
the so-called "rebel" organization might
be recognized as the supreme body or
organized switchmen and yardmen.
The executive council of the unicago
Yardmen's Association decided to "stand
pat" on their wage demands and refused
to order the. striking switchmen back to
work.
Must Return by Midnight.
The railroads and the brotherhoods
have given the strikers until midnight
to-morrow to return to work. Failure
to do this, railroad officials said, would
entail loss of seniority. Tho brother
hoods threatened to expel tho strikers.
Recognition of tho "rebel" organisa
tion as the governing body of the
switchmen and yardmen wo.uld take
about'&S.OOO members from the Brother
hood of Railway Trainmen and about
0,000 from tne Bwucnmen s union ui
North America, union leaders said. The
.n whv thn brotherhoods are fight
ing this secession movement is obvious,
mkv oxoi-iaH that the new demand
- - - -

Philadelphia, April 17. The "out
law" strike of tho railroad employees
on all lines between Boston and Phila
delphia was ended to-day through the
action of the Pennsylvania State Me
diators. Traffic conditions on nil road?
entering' this city havo returned al
most to normal, and with few excep
tions all .evidence of the strike will
have disappeared by Monday.
Employees of the Philadelphia and
Reading wero the last here to aceopt
the terms to return to work. vAt a
wild and joyous meeting 3,000 of them
voted to-accept tho offer of the road
aa presented by Charles H. Ewing
vice-president in charge of operation,
on receipt of assurances that all men
would bo taken back without prejut
dice.
Swing carao through with these terms
after several stormy sessions with Will
iam J. Tracy, chief of the Bureau of
Mediation and Arbitration ot the State
Department of Labor and Industry. It
was said that at the first session be
tween Tracy and the Reading officials he
was "almost thrown out." Quicker, set
tlement of the strike was prevented
through the action ot the Reading in
dismissing eleven' leaders In the strike
who had returned to work. Tho other
men refused to go back to their work
until these men had been reinstated, and
once they were the flow of traffic became
almost normal at once.
On the Pennsylvania complete trafflo
schedules are In operation with the ex
ception of the New York and Philadel
phia service, where stverai trains which
had been annulled havo not been ie
stored. These have been ordered re
turned as soon as possible.
The embargo on express trarnc was
raised on shipments to and from all
points on tho Pennsylvania system with
the exception of the cities of New York,
Baltimore. Pittsburg and local points
on the New York division.
PiTTSBURO. April 17. Railroad man
agers and Brotherhood leaders reiter
ated to-night that the yardmen's strike
gradually. was "going to pieces" and
men wero returning to work. Passenger
traffic on all lines entering the city
showed Improvement during the day and,
there was some Improvement in freight
movement, but It was not of sufficient
volumo to warrant resumption of Idle
industries.
Strikers on tho Buffalo, Rochester and
Pittsburg Railroad, about 700 In number,
voted to-day to go back to work, while
work was resumed on the Erie at Mead-
vllle, Pa., when the trainmen returned
to their places. Baltimore ana onio pas
senger trainmen In Pittsburg returned
at noon and Pennsylvania officials said'
their men gradually wero drifting back.
