TREATY OF PEACE
READY FOR HUNS
APRIL 1, PROGRAM
League of Nations Charter Also Ready for
Council of Ten; Not to Delay Peace; Lord
Cecil Argues That Covenant Strengthens
Monroe Doctrine?Japanese Called at Cril
lon Yesterday Supposedly to Offer Amend
ment on Race Equality.
Parie. March 1?.?The speed-up
program of the Peace Conference
waa In full awing today.
Committee ?eaalon? ?nd the meet
in?; of the Supreme War Council
thia afternoon wer? expected to ac
fomphah appreciable progress In
drawing up the terma of the pre
liminary treaty with Germany.
The delegate? continued in their
belief that the treaty will be fully
eonrpleted by March 29. and will
probably be submitted to the Ger
mans three day? later. It wa? an
nounced today that Versailles has
been definitely selected as the sit?
for signing the treaty.
I.rasar'? Charter Heady.
Lord Cecil asserts the league's
charter is ready for the council of
ten at any moment and therefore will
not delay peace. Criticism her? is
relatively weak. Lord Cecil declare?
It Is concerned moetly with the phrase
ology raiher than the basic ideas.
Amendments to the covenant are ?till
possible.
I?ord Cecil argues, furthermore, that
the covenant strengthens the Monroe
doctrine rather than weakening it,
because nothing can be done without
unanimous decision, and furthermore,
he says, the league would not inter
fere with the Internal affairs of any
country.
Far from being a hastily put-to
gether document, the covenant has
been repeatedly considered by the
British cabinet, even in Asqulth's
time as prime minister.
.lapasses? ?.roused.
The Japanese delegates called at th?
Crillon yesterday to inquire when the
league of nations commission, of
which President "Wilson is chairman,
?rill meet again It is supposed they
will then offer an amendment calling
for race equality. Dispatches from
Tokyo report public agitation tn Ja
pan on this subject, which may force
the Mikado's representatives to make
an etTort to obtain this clause.
It ia possible they will set theoreti
cal satisfaction In the form of a sol
emn enunciation et a general princi

but it is unlikely that Japan will
make her *nlhereijce to tha league ab

FRENCH FURIOUS

Germany Paying Americans
For Food with Cash
?Angers Paris Editors.
Pari?. March 19.?French con

British food merchants in cash be

"By playing the card of Bolshe

getting food. Her resources in gold
and foreign credits go for eatables
? that much we are ahead of the
enemy.' we can hear Scheidemann
and Ranlzau say. The flrst German
indemnity thua vanishes into the
pockets of English and American
food dealers. German politics and
allied commercialism meet recip
rocal satisfaction. After a few more
deals of this sort what will remain

The same note is sounded by the
clerical Echo De Paris, which re
grets that the allies allowed the
Germans to negotiate for food In
stead of telling them what they
must give and what they could have.

Released But Dissatisfied.
New Yerk. March 19?'Some one

Mr* Betty Inch, whose ankles are

?he be brought to trial for the third
time at once, so that her name may
be cleared of the charge of trying to

Judge Davis said this was impossible.
Mrs. Inch declared It was ridicu

from Fort Worth. Texas, stirred,
rubbed his eye?, rolled over and
leached for his trousers.
The Pullman porter didn't know

head. So when Wilkin finished his
mile and a half of unusual travel
through Oklahoma City streets, he
was decidedly half suited. To cover
discrepancies and exposures, he
brought a JC.OOO suit. He says
Hines ought to pay even if he

Also he mentions a diamond stick

before a 700-member meeting of the
Board of Trade at the Willard Hot?!
last night.
Traire M Befare.
Nearly a decade ago, when he A?
a member of the Diatrict Committee
of the House, said Senator King, he
suggested the same thing. He re
peated the suggestion last night, to
be greeted with applause from the
assembled business men.
The municipal agent would be paid
from a supecription taken up by bus-j
ineas men. according to Senator
King's suggestion. He would be allow
ed to b? present at Congressional in
vestigation? into all District affaire.
The suggestion he made some yeara

>on Senator King said he did not
know. He declared he proposed it
again, confident that consideration
would be given It by the twentjeth
century inhabitants of Washington.
"The American people must yet
learn the art of municipal govern

know how to govern cities a^ they
should be governed

"Municipal aovernment* have been
made the pray of politician? and po-;

And in a follow-up address to Sena- ?

Mondell. ot Wyoming, floor leader of
the next Congress, summed i>p what
he considered the most pressing need?
of the Diatrict and pledged hie ?ap

The Bolsheviki specter flared up at
one point in the address of Senator
King. "The Bolshevik i? hare." he de
clared. "And he may be here for an

haunted by him. Shal it portend when !
the peace treaty has been signed.
Shall we leave Poland, the Czecho

Return of the railroads lo their

will be proposed in a bill now be
ing prepared by Representative
John .7. Esch. of Wisconsin, the new
chairman of the House Committee
on Interstate and Foreign Com
merce.
Mr. Esch said yesterday he thought
it would be possible to rnact the
legislation and send it to the Presi
dent for approval before the end
of the year. It would become op
erative under the prosatone he
will urge, within six months after
the President signs it.
The bill introduced by Mr. Esch
in the last Congress will be used
as a basis around which the new
legislation will be written. It con
tains the fundamentals of the rail
road problem which should be con
sidered in reaching a satisfactory
solution, Mr. Esch believes.
"We should certainly preser?. e
whatever advantages that have been
developed under federal control."
he said. "Among these advantages
are the requirements for inter
change of the equipment. Joint use
of terminals snd combined operation
of certain lines wherein it would
result in benefit to the public.''
