PLAN TO PROHIBIT
IMPORTATION JttF
ARMS INTO CHINA
Proposal Made by U. S. Believed
Acceptable ie Delegates
of Other Powers
JAPANESE TO QUIT RUSSIA
WHEN CONDITION'S PERMIT
By the Associated Press
Washington, Jan. 23. As ene means
of giving effect te Its declaration lest
week In favor of reduction of the
Chlncse Army, the Anns Confcrcnce Is
considering another resolution looking
te prohibition of the Importation of
arms into China. '
The proposal emanated from the
American delegation, which went Inte
today's meeting of the Fnr Eastern
Cemmittee prepared te present It
fermnlly.
The Far Eastern Committee received
the reports of Its subcommittee en Chl Chl
nceo Eastern Hallway which recom
mended contlnunnce of the present in
terallied control of the read until the
restoration of mero stable conditions In
Russia. The Chlncse delegation, how
ever, entered some objections te the
recommendation of the report, nnd the
cemmittee reterrcu it bacK ler nnni
perfection.
Ne Objection Frem Chlncse
The arms prohibition plan was be
lieved acceptable te most of the dele
gations of the Powers, and it was in
dicated also that the Chinese, who
heartily supported the preceding reselu
tien regarding reduction of China's
army, would net intcrpose any ob
jection. I
At the time of the settlement of the
Boxer difficulties many yenrs age, one
of the conditions Imposed upon China
ny the United States nnd the European
Powers participating in the ramnalcn
against the Boxers wns that further
importation of firearms into China
should be prohibited.
This proylsien, however, Is.tnid te
nave been "mere honored irj the breach
than in the observance," and though
from time te time, mainly at the in
stance of the Japanese, attention has
been called te the facility with which
the vnrieus brigand and factiennl bands
ill fUilnji wnrft nhle in tivniri tlin lntnat
flrearms from abroad, few of the nations
party te the Boxer settlement ever perl-1
eusly undertook te cut into tills very
lucrative nrms trade. N
By the treaty of St. Germain, one
of the supplementary conventions fol
lowing the Paris Peace Treaty, the na
tions represented there undertook te lay
a general Inhibition upon the supply of
arms te seml-clvilizcd and turbulent
populations In vnrieus parts-, the.
world. -Efferts havG been mndJ with
out success) te have America ratify this
treaty which otherwise has been ap
proved by all the ether Powers.
Moreover. It has been urged that the
treaty would net apply in nny case te
China, which could scarcely be cor
rectly described ns a scnii-civilizetl
country.

industries, wns advocated today bj
President Harding in opening tltc Na

"An industry," the President snid,
"mere vital than nny ether, in which
nearly half the nation's wealth Is in
vested, can be relied upon for geed se
curity and certain returns."
Declaring that, In the matter et what
may be called fixed investment enpitnl,
the disadvantage of the farmer se im
pressed public opinion thnt the Federal
Farm Lean Beard was- established te
meet the need, the President snld the i
farmer still needed Bome prevision for
supplying him with working cnpltal.
'Compared with ether Industries,"
he continue l, "the wonder is that ag
riculture, thus deprived of ensy access

prosperity of agriculture. -
Whether theM organizations nre con cen
