IF PARLEY IS SUCCESSFUL
Dr. Tsao Believes Rapid Strides
Will Be Made, But Says Advance
Would Come Anyway.
The assurance that if the^ present
conference is a success China's devel
opment will go forward with rapid
strides was expressed Wednesday night
by Dr. Yun Sing: Tsao, assistant secre
tary general of the Chinese delega
tion, at a meeting of the Women's
City Club. "If the conference is a

j self, become unified and work out her

The future of the Japanese and Chi
1 nese nations must be so closely inter
related, the speaker declared, that
perfect understanding and fairness
in all dealings with each other will be
essential for the progress of both.
"China does not want any of her de
mands granted unless they are based
on justice, but we believe that asking
the return of sovereign rights is only
fundamental justice." he continued.
Dr. Tsao spoke also of the famine
in China, declaring that lack of
transportation facilities was chiefly to
blame, and he spoke of the great
work being done by the American

Formal Stand Awaits Ex
pression From Underwood,
BY DAVID LAWRENCE,
The majority of the democrats In
the United States Senate are opposed
at present to the ratification of the
four-power pact between the United
States, Great Britain, Japan and
France with respect to the islands of
Until Senator Oscar Underwood,
democratic leader and member of the
American delegation, which signed
the treaty, has an opportunity to ex
press his views there will be no
formal opposition to the pact.
If the treaty were submitted to a
vote today it would pass by a com
fortable margin, notwithstanding the
democratic opposition, as for the mo
ment the line-up Is hardly different
from that which developed when the
last treaty with Germany was ratified.
The foregoing analysis of the sit
uation comes from democratic leaders
who have the highest respect and af
fection for Senator Underwood, but
who insist that it was a mistake for
1.1m to sign a treaty phrased as am
biguously as they believe is the four
power pact. Opposition to the treaty
was not very pronounced at the out
set. But the unmistakable fact is
that the developments of the last two
days have been harmful to the treaty's
Growing Opposition Seen.
The discovery that the treaty in
cluded the mainland of Japan and that
the United States actually agreed in
secijpt session to an interpretation
which covered the islands of Japan
proper within the scope of the pact
has unquestionably had an effect.
President Harding's own misconcep
tion of what the treaty covered has
been responsible for the turn in demo
cratic sentiment and for a growing
opposition among republicans. Even
the most ardent supporters of the
President will concede that the situa
tion has hardly been improved by the
discussion over the ambiguity of the
phrases in the treaty covering the
mainland of Japan.
Already there is talk of reservations
to "clarity." but Senator Lodge is re
ported in Senate cloakrooms as hav
ing said that any reservations would
"ruin the treaty." The democrats
who are unalterably opposed to the
pact, even with reservations, pre
bound to hiake the most of Senator
Lodge's attitude if this should prove
to be his ultimate conclusion, for it
was Mr. Lodge who insisted upon a
long series of reservations to the Ver
sailles treaty and contended that Pres
ident Wilson had fair warning of the
Senate's attitute in the round robin
which was circulated just after the
covenant was published.
To this the democratic leaders re
ply that no opportunity was given
for study of the text of the treaty be
fore it was signed and that the meas
ure was negotiated In secret session.
The democrats plan as one step in
their campaign against the treaty to
call for the proceedings of the secret
sessions in order to learn what other
things the American delegation may
have agreed to besides the French and
British interpretation that the main
land of Japan was covered in the pact.
May Answer Through l'ndrrwo?d.
To this sort of tactics it is not only
probable but most likely that Presi
dent Harding will answer through
Oscar Underwood, democratic leader,
who as a member of the American
delegation is presumed to be aware of
everything that transpired. Those
democrats who anticipate that Mr.
Underwood will be committed to vote
for the ratification of the treaty in
sist that he Is the last man in the I
world to ask anybody in the Senate i
to vote against his convictions, as he
himself has maintained the same right
in the past and has encouraged inde-j
pendence of action.
The feeling has been growing among
democrats that Mr. Underwood made a
mistake in accepting membership on
the American delegation, In whose de
cisions he represented only a minority
voice and over whose actions he had
so little to say. since he has not been
a member of either the committee
which negotiated 'the naval agree
ment or the four-power pact, and was
in the position of having to accept
what his three republican colleagues
did without being able to adopt a dis
Has Faithful Friends.
Mr. Underwood, however, is sur
rounded by a faithful group of friends
in the Senate who will support him on
the four-power pact as they did on
the German treaty. The danger to
ratification lies rather in the possibil
ity of a democratic coalition. Sena
tor McNary of Oregon, republican,
wants reservations. Senator Kenyon
of Iowa, republican, is reported as un
Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska,
democrat, who voted for the German
treaty and indicated some time ago
that he might favor the four-power
pact, is inclined to be open-minded
about the new treaty and await the
outcome of the whole conference be
fore reaching a decision. Senator
Johnson of California, republican, is
In his native state now keeping his
ear to the ground there. Some demo
cratic senators think Mr. Johnson will
support the treaty in order to assure
himself of administration support in
his campaign for re-election next
year, as there have been rumors of
Herbert Hoover enterfng the race
against Mr. Johnson. Those who know
the C41if0i*nia senator best ridicule
such an assertion and insist that he
will make up his mind on the four
power pact irrespective of political

Cable advices to friends here In
forming them of the cause of the
illness of William Warwick Corcoran
of this city, American consul at
Boulogne, have revealed the fact that
the "handsome Englishman" who
s-aved the life of a boy drowning in
the sea near the cliffs of Boulogne
sur-Mer was Mr. Corcoran himself.
Mr. Corcoran at present Is con
fined to the consulate with a serious
case of pneumonia. It developed that
he was the man described as "th*
handsome Englishman" who refused
to give hi? name and made a quiet
departure after leaping into the sea
and rescuing the drowning boy.
It was originally thought that tha
recurer was an English visitor to
Boulogne. Mr. Corcoran was trans
ferred to Boulogne only a short time
ago after a critical illness with
tropical fever in Madras, India
He made a commendatory record
during the world war as a first
lieutenant in command of a machine

he was gassed. Upon entering the

was first sent to Bombay, India.

LOUDOUN COUNTY LEADS
IN ARMAMENT INTEREST
No Other Section of Country So
Thoroughly Organized, Re
port Here Says.
To Loudoun county, Va., is ascribed
the honor for the most intensive or
ganization in the interest of limitation
of armament and other purposes for
which the international conference
here was called, by a report made yes
terday by the National Council for
Limitation of Armaments.
No other section of the country, ac
cording to the report, is so thoroughly
organized. Every man. woman and child
living in the county is eligible for
membership in the county council for
limitation of armament, of which
Mrs. H. J. Hoge is chairman. Three
county editors form the publicity
committee. Presidents of the two cham
bers of commerce are on the speakers'
committee. The. membership commit
tee is formed of former service men.
Within ten days, recently fourteen
meetings were held in the county. A
prize essay competition has been
started in schools and Mrs. Rachel
Davis Dubois has just completed a
week's speaking tour in the county.
Organizations already represented in
the council are the Farmers' Club, the
Home Club, the Book Club, the Pur
cullville Women's Club, the Women's
Christian Temperance Union. the
County Teachers' Association and the
Episcopal. Meihodist, Presbyterian
and the two Quaker congregations.
Statement of Attitude Has
Been Issued by Backers
of Arms Limitation.
Necessity of an international eco
I nomic conference for the adjustment
| of an international economic crisis,
affecting America as well as other
I countries, was emphasized in strong
I terms in a supplementary statement
of attitude by the general committee
! on the limitation of armament, an un
I official organization, to create senti
1 ment in favor of the arms conference,
"What other way has been or can
be suggested?" the statement asks,
referring to the solution of interna
tional economic problems. "And there
can be no international economic con
ference without the participation and
j leadership of the United States. Amer
ica must lead.
Propose* London Meeting.
The London Chronicle, semi-official
organ of Lloyd George, declares that
Great Britain should appropriate the
plan for an international economic
conference. From a purely British
standpoint much would be gained by
a conference assembled in London
with the United States on the side
lines?an American delegation par
! ticipating without a vote or responsi
"Such a conference would witness
the continuation of the struggle be
tween France and England, but the
country which had taken the initia
tive would have the advantage. Al
ready the Chronicle stipulates that
Germany and soviet Russia should be
invited from the beginning?auto
matically increasing the anti-French
forces by these two powers, which
makes French acceptance of such a
scheme most improbable.
'America holds the economic bal
ance of power. There is no other
force in the world capable of putting
an end to the political balance of
power, which, as long as the funda
mental financial and commercial
problems, reparations and debts re
main unsolved, will keep national
enmities alive and make half the
world an armed camp, in spite of
partial and temporary disarmament.
"Without entering into any purely
European or near eastern questions,
America, acting for our own trade
and financial interests, will be able,
within reasonable limits, to dictate a
plan of co-operation among our
debtors and customers.
World Ready for Orders.
"America is the majority stock
holder in the world's supply of gold,
credit, liquid assets and goods ready
for immediate use and delivery. The
world is not only ready for our or
ders, within the limits of reasen: it
is anxious to have our leadership.
"An international economic confer
ence called by America, under our
conditions, could exert no pressure
whatever on the United States, even
were all the other invited nations
united?an utterly improbable as
sumption. It could only be the means
of launching an American plan of
co-operation, in accord with Amer
ica's selfish interest, to aid in the
rehabilitation of nations which are
our debtors and customers.*'

Mr. Hoover said. In the meantime, the

negotiations arc in progress between

Shipping Board to Co-Operate.
Bids will be received at the Grain
Corporation in New York today for
supplying grain to ships at N'orth At
lantic ports for shipment to Russia.
Mr. Hoover said. The Shipping Board
is prepared to co-operate in shipment
"Distribution of the food purchased
under congressional authorization,"
Mr. Hoover said, "will be in the hands
of the American Relief Administra
tion. Kxcept for refugees, the major
distribution will be confined to the
Volga famine district, and it is not
expected to do any general relief in
other parts of Russia. The entire
overhead expenses will be borne by
the private resources furnished to the
American Relief Administration, so
that not one cent of the appropria
tion will be absorbed in either per
sonal or any other expenditure ex
cept for actual purchase and trans
port of food."
