October 29.?Desirability for peaceful co-operation w ith the United States was the fundamental point made by Prince Tokucawa. a member of the Japanese dele- J| gat ion to the disarmament conference. in an interview with the Associated Tress during the voyage from Japan. He dwelt on the urgency of the removal of all misunderstandings end causes of misunderstandings between nations, because he believed Q that if such misunderstandings were permitted to continue thev might lead to unfortunate circumstances, even to war. He added: "But personally I have never dreamed of the possibility of war with the United States." Hopes for Happy Concord. Bj Prince Tokugawa said he looked forward to his work at Washington as being of the very highest im- ^ portance in connection with the fu- ^ ture happy concord among the na- cc tions, more particularly between the ^ United States and Japan. "Generally speaking." said the m prince, "personally, I hope that the or question between China and Japan ^ will be kept out of the Washington conference, because it is better to ju solve these questions directly between OJ the countries concerned." ca Opposed to Militarism. te "What about militarism?" cc The prince replied: "I think that cc everybody who knows my work in ^ Japan realizes that I am opposed to a militarism as the world popularly te conceives the term militarism.

TOKiO, October 29.?The Shantung M question has developed into a senti- ^ rental dispute and now seems beyond ^ a solution by direct negotiations, dei lared the Asahi Shimbun in an edilorial today. The Asahi says it has leBrned from a well Informed authority that if China persists in her a) refusal to negotiate with Japan con- je cerning the return of the disputed a, province, the question eventually will l, be submitted to the Washington conference. 0I Since America understands Japan's fo, sincere Intention, the .editorial de- a? thp nrnhlpm aft^r all urfll Ka nettled by mediation of American au- w thorlties when China realizes the use- t0 lessness of her expectation of sup- sc port from the American government. w Japan Partly Blamed. "The circumstances which brought the present complications about," the P< editorial continued, "may be attributed partly to the arrogant attitude ?e China has shown In her recent reply ' to the Japanese note and partly to negligence on the part of the Japa- . nese government in failing to take n proper measures earlier.

REDS 10 PAY DEBTS IF NATIONS WILL RECOGNIZESOVIET Powers Must Also Agree to Make Peace in Order to Get Money Due. OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION JUST GIVEN TO PUBLIC State Department Awaits Arrival of Note?Millions Owed to U. S. Bankers. By the AssoAated Press. RIGA. October 29.?Official confirmation that the Russian soviet government has agreed, under certain conditions, to recognise the foreign debts of the Imperial Russian government was received here today through the Rosta official bolshevik news agency. According to the Rosta dispatch, George Chitcherin, soviet foreign minister, yesterday dispatched a note to the British. French, American, Italian and Japanese governments saying that the soviet government would agree to recognize the old debts, incurred up to 1914, under the condition that "Russia be given certain privileges making possible the practical fulfillment of those obligations." Soviet Russia's recognition of the debts. M. Chitchertn's note says. Is conditional upon the great powers concluding final peace with and recognizing the soviet republic. The foreigg minister proposes the holding Immediately of an interna1 tional conference to consider the demands of all nations upon Russia and the Russian claims upon them, and to work out a final treaty of peace. i Economic Aid Sought. "The Brussels conference," says M. Chitcherin in his note, "stipulated, 1 according to the European papers, as ' a condition of granting credits to the ' Russian government for famine relief, acknowledgment of the debts of previous Russian governments. Of this 1 decision of the conference the Russian government up to the present ' is uninformed. 1 "The Russian government, however. In the face of the starving masses, does not wish to consider the Intricacies of diplomatic etiquette, and ' considers that it is its straight duty Immediately to proclaim its attitude toward the Brussels decisions." M. Chitcherin announces that recog' nition of the old debts under certain conditions coincides with the Soviet's Intentions and declares that from the 1 very beginning the soviet government ' aimed at economic co-operation with the other powers. | Real Peace llnattalned. i Stating that the soviet had always - proclaimed Its readiness to grant ' sufficient profits to foreign capitalists to aid in the reconstruction of Rus sla, he says, that even now it finds 1 in official announcements of the i President of the United States and t British ministers expressions of regret that at the expiration of three years from the world war real peace is still unattained. j M. Chitcherin argues that In the #- - ? ? * *ko Annnnmln phoAfl omnnir tha t nations real peace is impossible without Russia and its 130,000,000 people and that agreement with the soviet is a prime necessity not only for Rus1 sia, but for other nations. The minister enters into a long . argument to the effect that the eco. nomic reconstruction of Russia will be difficult and protracted, but better i accomplished by the labor of the 1 peasant government than by any I other, because it will not permit the selfish interests of private and sepaI rate capitalistic groups to hinder the . tgsk. 1 Object at New Hove. i * , "The soviet has re-established pri. vate trade and private ownership in t small undertakings," be continues.

With this object the soviet meets the demands from the other powers of recognition of the old cxarlst debts.

Next Session Crucial. ULSTER IS IN THE WAY Lloyd George's Action in Consulting Parliament Causes Tremendous Stir. BY EDWARD PR^CE BELL. Br Cable to The Star and Chicago Daily Sew*. Copyright. 1BB1. LONDON, England, October 29.?It Is the-ttniversal opinion here that the Irish negotiations have now reached a deadlock and that all subsequent maneuvering, including Monday's debate in parliament, is intended merely to flx the responsibility for the inevitable breakdown. The premier's unexpected move in consulting parliament at this stage is variously described in the newspapers as defiance ... - to the tory discards and a challenge to the Sinn Fein. It Is really both and its purpose is partly to establish Lloyd George it? an impregnable position with English opinion and partly to convince the Sinn Fein that if it wants a settlement it must modify the basis of its demands. End of Conference Seen. The section of the old unionist party opposed to any negotiations with what it describes a murderers is negligible. But Eamon de Valera's telegram to the Pope and the daily assumption by the Sinn Fein of all the functions of government and the ousting of British authority in every detail of the administration have affected all sections of the coalition party and made it necessary for the premier to define his position before proceeding further. The Sinn Fein, al ways uncuiiiprunuBiiig, is not iiaeiy in the future to show any more regard for the prime minister's difficulties than it has shown in the past. It is therefore believed that the conference, whose business for some days past has been conducted by subcommittees, will reassemble only formally to dissolve itself. Some say that the issue on which It will break down is that of allegiance' to the king and, some maintaln that it is the refusal of the gov(Continued on Page 3, Column 5.)

By the Aseeriated Press. VANCOUVER. B. C? October 29.? Between thirty-five and fifty lives lost and property damage of several million dollars tonight was the estimated toll of floods that swept away parts of several towns north and east of here last night and today. The most damage was at Britannia Beach, a mining village with a population of 350, eighteen miles north of Vancouver. There lajit night a cloudburst broke through a fill, and released a torrent which rushed down to the ocean, carrying about half the houses in the town. Late in the afternoon meager advices placed the number of dead and missing at 35. A ship bearing medical aid has gone from Vancouver. A portion of Port Coquitlam, fourteen miles east of Vancouver, was de stroyed by nooa waters 01 tne L.o-j quitlam river. Several buildings washed from foundations went floating down the river. No mention was made of casualties in reports from this district, but fourteen families were said to be marooned. Communication with the stricken area was impossible except by boat. The Canadian Pacific railway reported extensive damage to its property. Several bridges and miles of track were washed away on the main line, paralyzing transcontinental traffic.

ANTI-BEER BILL DUE NEXT 4 Two More Amendments Disposed Of?Senator Keed jievives Soldier Bonns. Passage of the tax revision bill by the Senate, hoped for by the republican 1 leader* during last week, will, in all probability, not be accomplished before ' the middle, or perhaps the last, of this | week. Democratic opposition to speeding the bill through the Senate proved effective, notwithstanding the night sessions which wera held and the threat of a 1 continuous session until the measure should be disposed of. Negotiations yesterday between the I majority and the minority looking to an agreement on a day for a final vote I on the bill fell through. But democratic leaders later estimated that the bill might be passed by next Wednesday or Thursday. Some, senators on the majority side were of the opinion that a vote would be had by Tuesday night. Anti-Beer Bill Dne Next. The fact that the antt-beer bill Is scheduled to come up for consideration as soon as tho tax bill is out of the way may have the effect of still further delaying: the tax bill, however. Opponents of the anti-beer bill, it is said, may drag out the debate on the tax bill in order to put off consideration of the other measure. It is hoped that if the tax bill is held before the Senate long enough there may be enough pressure for the immediate consideration of the railroad funding bill or the foreign loan refunding bill to cause further postponement ef the anti-beer bill. But the prohibition members insist that there shall be no further delay of the anti-beer bill. Senator Reed's interjection of the soldier bonus fight into the consideration of the tax bill has added still further to the complexity of the situation. But It is the plan of the repub lican leaders to move to lay his amendment on the table and so shut oft debate on it, once it is really before the Senate.

Standing: alone, with uncovered head bowed in silent prayer, Ferdinand Foch, marshal of France and leader of the allied armies which fought to preserve a principle laid down a century ago by the man who lies at Mount Vernon, placed a wreath of flowers on the tomb of George Washington yesterday afternoon. There was no formality, no ritual, about the way this great man and soldier paid his tribute to another.

The little group which accompanied him on his pilgrimage paused outside. The heavy, iron fates i were opened, and Gen. Foch entered the tomb alone. He carried a large wreath of beautiful roses and chrysanthemums, and, after placing it on the tomb, stood reverently, head lowered, lips moving in prayer. Soldier Once More. Then the soldier again. A brisk salute, a turn about and he joined those who waited outside. Before visiting the tomb he was guided about the homestead by Harrison Dodge, superintendent. The original Houdon bust of Washington was pointed out to him in one of the lower rooms and he spent several minutes inspecting It. Then he went upstairs to the bedrooms and signed his name in the official guest book. The marshal took a deep interest In his visit through the house, frequently asking questions about the .history of various objects and inquiring how much of the house was new and how much restored. 8e told members of his party that Viewed from the road, the place was like any one of a thousand farms, but that once he was inside the grounds and saw the beautiful trees, rich In autumn foliage of many colors, and the view of the river, fie realized why Washington was content to spend his last days there". Impressed by Simplicity. He commented frequently on the simplicity of the place. "It was characteristic of the man himself," he said. Returning from Mount Vernon, the 1 party motored through Potomac Park. where the new Lincoln Memorial was : pointed out to the marshal. Later ' the marshal returned to his hotel for 1 a brief rest.

Cheered Everywhere Here. Cheering crowds greeted Marshal Foch everywhere during his visit ef little more than a day In the capital. There was no mistaking the warmth of greeting extended to the little gray-haired man who humbled the mighty horde from across the Rhine. The cheers he received came from the hearts as well as from the Hps and throats of those who uttered them. The marshal accepted the tributes paid him with (becoming modesty. His right hand frequently came to his cap In salute and smiles played across his features. He accepted the Importunate requests of newspaper and motion picture photographers, whq trailed him everywhere. with good grace, but always seemed to breathe a sigh of relief when these formalities were over. A handsome gold medallion will be presented to the marshal as a souvenir of his visit to Indianapolis November 4. The presentation will be made in French by Dr. Carleton B. McCulloch, chairman of the executive committee In charge of the Foch day celebration.
