PARIS, March St.?A plan for th<
ayment of th? German war bill b:
Iverston of all German ooal revenue:
ato the allied coders and main
8nance of International control o
Jpper Silesia for an indefinite perio*
? being: discussed in French officia
I roles.
The French realise that the Germat
overnment is working- under greai
lfllcultles in trying to meet the aled
demands on reparations. Howver
much Dr. Walter Simons. Ger
tan foreign minister, would like t(
ay large sums to the allies, he woulc
e powerless to compel those personi
l Germany who possess all the mone;
o place it at the disposal of the gov
If the allies were to control all o!
iermany's coal supply it would a<
ist be possible to bring pressure t<
ear on the great industrial profiteer!
ii uermany.
Plan No Coal Shortage.
The allies have no intention, unde
he plan being: considered, of keeping
lerman Industries short of coal. Oi
he contrary, they are Interested ti
ee that German industry thrives, pro
ided, of course, that a satisfactor;
ercentage of profits goes lowari
aying the German war bill.
With the control of all coal in the!
ands, the allies would be able to sa;
J Hugo Stlnnea and the other indusrial
"Unless you and your industries an
repared to help the German govern
tent In Its efforts to pay the repara
ions bill you will get no coal."
Whether the present scheme actuall;
?mes to the point of open discussioi
etween Germany and the allies de
ends upon many considerations, oni
f the chief of which is whethei
oland can be brought to accept thi
ossible proposals opposing the divi
ion of Silesia and to regard the prob
sm as one affecting all the allies.
Great Britain Approves.
The coal seizure proposal, which is
lid to have the approval of Greal
ritlan and the other allied powers
tcept Poland, has for Its keynote th?
Isregarding, at least temporarily, o:
te results of the plebiscite in Uppei
ilesia. It is suggested that for th<
me being the allies refrain fron
ividing Silesia, as they have a ful
ight to do under the terms of th<
lebiscite as set forth in the treat:
f Versailles. Strictly speaking, th<
Ilies have good grounds, on the basil
t plebiscite results, for giving t<
oland that part of Upper Silesia
'hich contains the iron and coa
lines and for alloting to German:
nly a valueless strip of territory ii
lie northwest.
The Germans, who got a pnajorit:
i the popular vote, are pleading: thai
he territory should not be divided
nd it is understood that Great Brit
In is not anxious to see such an ex
remely valuable territory as this
rith its mines, handed entirely t<
'oland. The Germans argue tha
vithout Silesia they cannot hope ti
lay the war bill due the allies.

RICHWOOD, W. Va. March 2?.?
Posses of lumberjacks with blood,
hounds are scouring the mountains
5 north of here tonight, searching for
three armed bandits who last night
held up a lumber camp, killed one
man and escaped with $10,000 in cash,
$6,000 worth of checks and some jewelry.
The three bandits, wearing masks.
. appeared at the camp, thirty miles
| north of here, just after nightfall.
Thirty lumberjacks were lined up.
and, while one of the robbers covered
the men. the others collected the
r cash, checks and Jewelry. One man
refused to hand over $2,000 and he
was killed.
Feeling was running high tonight
among the lumbermen of Nicholas
e and Pocahontas counties. The news
of the hold-up and subsequent rob"
bery of the men's winter savins
n spread quickly, and tonight every
j pass from the mountains was barred
t by men armed with rifles.

Tactically Four-Fifths of
Seized Wet Goods Cannot
Be Held by Government.
lecial Dlspfttrh to The 8t?r.
NEW YORK, March 26.?Unless &
cent ruling' of the United States
Ircuit court of appeals Is reversed }
y the United States Supreme Court
rohibltlon officials will have to relore
to the former owners millions
r dollars' worth of liquor confiscated
> all parts of the United States, it
as said by authorities here today.
Some estimates fix the amount to
e returned as high as four-fifths of i
le quantity seised by the govern- '
lent since prohibition went into efrct.
It Is pointed out that the bulk
f the contraband liquors taken
harge of by revenue agents was
;lzed in New York city.
The decision of the fourth United '
tates circuit court of appeals, handed
own on March 10, held that the Volk
1.0 rl 'nit null o ml rnnauln/l I ho
Id internal revenue statute, under
hich much of the wet goods was
onflscated. Enforcement agents have
een seising entire stocks from deal- ,
rs and individuals under this revenue '
latute whenever a violation has been
rund. Under the Volstead act only ,
quor involved in the actual violaon
may be seized, it is held.
Assistant United States Attorney i
lobert A. Peattie said today he was ,
iclined to believe that the decision ,
r'ould hold. It is known that he ad- ]
ised Krnest Uangley. supervisor of
rohibition enforcement, today to
ostpone a seizure of $200,000 worth of I
quors already planned until he has !
eceived complete information re- j
arding the case from the supervi- j
It is believed one of the immediate
fifects of the decision will be a great :
urtailment in seizures of liquor, which
ften run into millions of dollars' worth I
eekly, for the whole country. It is |
nuersioou mat cnuea r>iaies attorneys
re advising more cautious procedure
n the part of revenue agents.
An idea of the huge quantity of
quor which may be returned can be
btained from an unofficial inventory- i
f the amount of whisky and red ,
fine in the Knickerbocker warehouse.
his inventory, made today, is of !
quors seized in Manhattan and the |
ronx only. It gives the quantities j
s 62.000 cases and 5,000 barrels of
fhisky and 25,000 barrels of wine.!,
luch miscellaneous liquor, such as j
in, brandy, cognac, champagne and i
ther wines are stored there, but the
mounts could not be learned.

Warning that any person found or

"shot on sight by federal troops wh<

closing the border to American hunt

The order and warning were signet
