Premier Nlttl of Imly. ppcaklng to-day with refer ence 10 that country' policy toward Ger many, Austria and Jugoslavia ami also upon the financial situation In .Italy, rharRrcl that a campaign of falsehood wast being conducted by unknown por kuii against hH country. rteferrlnir to the restoration ot econ omic relations In Europe, Slgnor Nlttl Mid: "We must allow Germany to resume her place In tho world. Europe will never reacquire stability until Ger man j -Hint great storehouse- of pro ductive encrgy-and Hussln-that Im mense warehouse of raw materials-are once more placed In a position to pro sreis and prosper. Tho whole effort of Italy's policy Is dlrccied to this end now "There is only one European question. Eurore must at nil costs avoid new wars. Italy oocs not Intend to partic ipate In new wars and, considers every thing which is likely "to disturb peace ts harmful." "The dissemination of false news detri mental to Italy Is an abominable thing." Premier Nlttl said. "It Is a veritable campaign of libellous falsehoods. By whom li It promoted? Many telegrams which claim to havo come from Italy prne to have been sent from neighbor ing countries by persons who have not lied in Italy and who are acting in the interests ot unknown parties. "No country of the Uutopcan conti nent is sounder than Italy. Tho ex change Is absolutely unfair and does tot in any way correspond to our real mtuation. You will see In a few years Thai r, ill be Italy's position In the world. Acted With DUIntereitednei. "What Is happening to Italy Is really odious. She fought and defeated a great and powerful enemy, but her efforts have pot been sufficiently appreciated. Yet the acted with the greatest disinterest edness. She Is the only cquntry In Uurope which entered tlw war without being bound to do so by treaties, and jet people dare to talk about her 'ego Ism.' After a hard fought war she has ac quired neither colonies not territories rich In minerals, but only small Italian territories. Yet foreigners have the face to talk about her 'Imperialism.1 "Italy now Is making a magnificent effort at reconstruction. She is suffer ing from unrest like every other country emerging from the war. but she Is not less strong than any other country. Yet here, even In this connection, Is a cam paign of falso news. We have overcome far greater difficulties and we shall overcome even these. But It is painful to witness this campaign of falsehood. Whence does it come'.' Do you think It Is fair' "Italian exchange is not merely the result of tho economic situation but of exaggerated anxiety abroad generated by false news. I must not make any comparisons; but what other country has given such great proof of confi dence in Itself'.' Our last loan In a few days produced 20,000,000,000 lire. Is this not proof of confider.cn and force? Why Such Hostility f He Aka. "Kven our commercial balance now Is far more favorablo than It was last year it the rate of about COO, 000, 000 a month Why then do we find In the markets of friendly and neutral States such bitter hostility? We have em plojed the most rigorous measures to reduce home consumption, to limit Im ports and Increase exports, and we have introduced heavier taxation than any other European country. We count on our own resources alone, but for this very reason Italy must not be deprived of credit and we must be enabled to obtain at least that minimum of coal, Iron and raw materials Indis pensable to us. There are strikes and disorders In Italy, but are there less In other countries? Have you not even In the United States very serious strikes? "These are consequences of tho war. It is the nervousness which has spread over all belligerent and even neutral countries. We all are suffering In Kurope, even America Is suffering, from moral shellshock. "Why have you Americans so many strikes'' Independently of the moral un rest due to the war, I believe these labor troubles In every country' through out the world must be explained as a trltls In the search after a fair balance between human capital and' technical capital, leading to sounder and more advantageous cooperation of the dlffer int productive factors. "Italy has overcome many difficulties; the will overcome even this one. But it fair that from friendly countries not a friendly word should reach us? Do jou think It fair that our Industry would pay for Its coal twenty or thirty times more than before the war, and for its iron moro than fifteen times as much? .o, that Is not fair. Italian exchange must soon Improve. We havo a rizht to this, for our financial policy Is sound. Italy's stability ha"s nothing to fear. We should at once find credit for acquiring raw materials." "We are passing through a dark hour In Europe," Slgnor Nlttl continued, "but Italy's policy Is leading toward the light We do not wish to be a dominat ing forre, but a great civilizing force, and -bo count on the friendly coopera tion of the people of the United States. "The value of the lands which we are "quiring represents but a small part of ir puollc debt and this is our Im rerlalisni But even with the Jugoslav people I wish to come to an understand tig and carry out toward them a policy of loyalty and friendship. I desire to s'ablish with this neighboring people he closest economic and Intellectual re lations. "Italy will And with the Jugoslav peo ple a way to arrive at a. friendly and neighborly understanding. Even for the frontier question there will soon be a solution and the world will appreciate once more the spirit which prompts the Italian policy." Candidate for 1'rmldent of Cnbn, Havana, April 21. Senator Mara y Artola was nominated as candidate for President of Cuba by the National As sembly ot the Republican party yesterday. He hai, opposed many of the most 1m Mi,, measures advocated hv the rretn administration, especially the ANGLO-ITALIAN CLUB HELD OVER FRANCE Continued from First Pap, have not been disclosed, but that State, It Is known, will be considerably smaller than the London draft of the Turkish treaty made her, Ilowovcr, tho Armenians express themselves as satis fied, Inasmuch as they will not be placed under a league mandate, whereto they objected, Their safety will he assured by an Inter-allled military ring con sisting of .10.0,000 troop.', of which Greece will furnish one-third. Regard ing Armenian financial support tho Premiers havo decided that this should come from the United States If possible, and In their letter to President Wilson a direct request will bo mado that America, as the wealthiest nation In the world, furnish this Armenian aid. Second, regarding Russia, thero Is as vet no sign here of any settlement, Premier Lloyd George himself not be ing ready to decide on his own course and Premier Mlllerand being opposed to Premier Nlttl's picas for recognition' of the Soviet Government. Again It lias proved Impossible for the Allies to unite on a Russian policy. Third, regarding Gcrmnny. the most crucial question before the conference. Great Britain and Italy have Informed France that there Is no possibility of them yielding to the French viewpoint and that If France wants tho Entente to continue she must give assurances that Bhe will not repeat the Frankfort incident. GERMANY BEGS TO .HAVE LARGER ARMY Wants General Staff Re tainedFrance to Resist. PAttls. April 21 Germany has asked the Interallied Conference at San Remo to Inrreaso from 100,000 to iOO.OOO men the standing army provided for Ger many by the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. The request was contained In a note handed to the French Foreign Oftlce last evening with the demand that It bo sent to the Supremo Council nt San Remo. The note set forth that an increased force was necessary for the maintenance of order In the Interior and that, fur thermore, the nrmy would not aecept an order for Its dissolution. The note further requests that Ger many be allowed to retain the entire general staff and corps of officers, which means tho entire framework of the active army. It proposes that the forces she bo permitted to maintain bo divided as follows: Twelve divisions of Infantry, with a complement of nrtlllery; three divisions of cavalry; five Bpeclal brigades, com posed each of two regiments of Infantry and two groups of artillery. The note also asks for one battalion of heavy artillery for each division of Infantry. 160 airplanes divided Into eight groups, and four special companies ot troops for railway work. Two other German notes were handed to he Foreign Office at the same time. Tho first referred to the dlsbandment of the civic guards, as demanded by the Allies. Germany on April 19 presented this note, announcing the decision to disband the guards, to Gen. Nollet, head of the nlllcd commission of control In Berlin, and It has already been made public. The second note embodied requests that the Kelchswehr force In the neutral zone should be fixed according to the number of men Instead of the number of units, and that Germany be allowed to have eleven batteries of artillery Instead of two In the neutral zone. In French official circles the German requests are considered as merely one more move In the systematic offensive against tho Treaty ot Versailles. It was pointed out In this connection that If Germany were allowed to retain the general staff and the corps of officers the German army would differ from the army of 1914 in nothing but the fa cility with which the rank and file could be mobilized, the framework being always In readiness to bring the full fighting strength ot the country to bear. France, It was Indicated, will stoutly resist any concessions affecting the strength of the German army or the framework of the organization as stipu lated by the treaty. WASHINGTON WOULD GIVE GERMANS TIME Says American Interests Would Be Affected. Washi.vgton", April 21 Suggestion has been made to the allied Govern ments by the State Department that there be granted an extension to Ger many of the agreement which expired April 10 and which permitted tho pres ence ot limited German forces In tho neutral zone on the right bank of the Rhine. Tentative decision of the San Remo conference yesterday to compel strict enforcement of the Versailles treaty, however, is Interpreted by officials hero as Indicating that the Allies have not America's Leading Furriers Store Your Furs Reduction of Rate 2 IT IS just as cheap to store your furs in this model storage plant, where our own valu able furs are stored, as it is to send them to an out-of-the-way place where you don't know what really happens to them.

Tho agreement in question was con cluded In responeo to a protest of Ger many ngalnst provisions of the Ver sailles' treaty prohibiting the retention of an armed garrison in the neutral rone opposite the occupied1 Rhine bridgeheads. In tho midst of the Red conflagration In tho Ruhr district Ger many .asked an extension of three months for tho withdrawal ot tho forces In the neutral zono In a note addressed to Premier Mlllerand as president of the Peace Conference. American Interests, It Is said In offi cial circles here, would bo vitally nf fected by tho withdrawal of all Ger man police protection .from the neuttal zone opposite the Coblenz bridgehead. WILSON ACCEPTS COUNCIL CHALLENGE Sending of Johnson Inter preted in Washington. Rptrlal to Tnr. Sc ad Nkw Yok II nit aid. Washington, April 21. Tho United States Government, sees a challengo In the proceedings of tho allied conference at San Remo and has accepted It. This Is the Interpretation placed heie on the Instructions given Ambassador Robert Johnson to talte part In the conference an olllclnl observer. It had been definitely understood yesterday that such Instructions would not be given ex cept In remote contingency. President Wilson Is understood to havo personally directed that tho In structions be sent the American Am bassador at Rome. The Information from San Romo that Premier Lloyd George had decided to go alienit v.-ltn the settlement of European affairs with out the participation of the United States Is regarded here as a direct re fusal to recognize thu position taken by the President In the Near East and In tho settlement or li.e Adriatic ques tion. It Is difficult to see how the Presi dent will enforce his significant diplo matic gesture while the United States remains outside of the pale ot the League of Nations and will accept no responsi bilities In the settlements to be made. FULFIL TREATY IS KOESTER'S POLICY Only Way to Obtain Revision, Says German Minister. Berlin, April 21. Adolph ICoester, the new Minister of Foreign Affairs, In an Interview In Vorwaerts declared that Germany must strictly fulfil the pro visions of tho treaty of Versailles, for In that way only could she obtain n re vision of the treaty. Herr Koester paid: "Only the German Coalition Govern ment la trusted nbror-d and the Entente would not allow a dictatorship of the proletariat here. Wo must to-day more than ever havo tho trust of foreign countries. Tills Is a necessary step to revision of the peace treaty. "I regard the treaty of Versailles as a pact which we solemnly recognized by our signature, and we must resist the temptation to pursue a policy of pro test, which would entirely fall In Its ob ject. We must firmly resolve to fulfil the treaty, and where our will Is faced by unsurmountablo obstacles we must try to avoid too frequent protests and find a solution by frank discussion. Only thus shall we attain our great aim, namely, generous revision of the treaty. Ore of my flrst tasks will be to bring about evacuation of the River Main districts as soon as possible.'' S3 BILLION MARKS IN GERMAN BUDGET Deficit of Three Billions in Revenue Indicated. Berlin. April 20. Expenditures of 40.000.000,000 marks, to which may be added the railway and postal deficit of 12,900,000.000, arc provided for In the budget for the fiscal year of 1320 which was laid bctore the Budget Committee of the National Assembly bv Dr. Wlrth, Minister of the Treasury, to-day. The ordinary budget showed revenues amounting to 25,000,000,000. but ex penditures totalled 2T,9.'0.000,000, st there Is n deficit of 2,950,000,000. In explaining his figures, Dr. Wlrth said the deficit for the State railways will reach a huge total, owing to new demands by the men. Renewed de. mands, he declared, unless accompanied by additional revenues, would mean new Issues of paper money. ine .Minister contessed himself at a loss to provide new sources of revenue by taxation, unless It be by the creation ot Slate monopolies. He also fore shadowed tho consolidation of Ger many's floating debt, which step, he hoped, would be conducive to the grant Ing of credits by foreign nations. Herr Hoch, Socialist, said In his opinion, heavier taxation on large fortunes was Imperative. Iowa Paper Leaves Out Ada, Des Moinbs, April 21.

Tension between tho French and Brit ish delegations on the subject of the de mands upon Germany and tho enforce ment of tho Versailles tieaty has been considerable. The Fiench are declared to feel deeply that they havo been the greatest Buffercrs from Germany's omis sion In fulfilling her treaty obligations, that Germany's retention of war ma terial obliges Franco to remain armed, nnd that the reduction In coal deliveries keeps an Important fraction of the French Industries Idle. They sav that Qermany during the last nine months had Indicated clearly to the French mind that sho Intends to do nothing she cannot bo compelled to do, and that unless the Allies sharply warn her and prepare to follow up the warning by forcible measures Germany will default upon tho essential clauses of the treaty, counting upon escaping any further penalties or upon a revision of the treaty greatly disadvantageous to the French. The Hrltlsh position Is that although Germany has defaulted In Reveral ex trAmali. Imnnrtnnt remects nnd that she must bo required to fulfil her obliga tions, she can bo mado to do so wunoui further occupation of her territories and by severe economic restrictions.
