Tardieu Declares U. S. Lucky for Not Par
ticipating in Parley?Can See No Good
Results Because of Presence of Russians.
Former French Hlfli Comralistener to
Bj Cable to The Star.
PARIS, April 15.?Americans
often have grood ideas. One of
them, it seems to me, was ^eir
decision not to participate In the
Genoa conference.
This conference scarcely had
begun when the undesirability of
the presence of the soviet delega
tion was emphasized. In this re
gard the American government,
under both democratic and repub
lican administrations, never has
wavered. Bainbridge Colby and
Charles E. Hughes, in the same
place as Secretary of State, have
spoken the same language, abso
lutely refusing recognition of the
soviet government, and logically
. have avoided any half-way meas
ures that sooner or later would
lead to recognition.
Bloody Record.
The Genoa conference is a half
way measure of this sort. Chit
cherin is there on the same foot
ing. in fact, as Uoyd George.
Seated alongside of the delegates
of the great nations who fought
in the war are the representatives
of a government created in law
lessness, violence and crime. The
soviets betrayed the allies at
Brest-Liitovsk. assassinated mem
bers of the constitutional assem
bly. exterminated socialists and
strikers, instituted terror in free
republics like Georgia, and. to use
the words of Bmma Goldman,
''strangled revolution." Now at
Genoa the delegates at the confer
ence seem to have forgotten all
When Chitcherin spoke of dis
armament, although his govern
ment only exists#thr6ugh the sav
age pressure of a million and* a
half bayonets, it was only a bad,
even a sinister joke on his part.
Barthou's protest, although .strict
ly in accordance with the agree
ments of Cannes and Boulogne,
was received with murmurs among
the audience. It was a small mat
ter, I know, but it was intolerable
for every Frenchman conscious of
the moral value of his country and
its sufferings in war and in peace.
The same might be said of any
Incidents that tomorrow will
cause a quarrel between the allies
and the representatives of the
soviets. This already has hap
pened in the cases of Rumania
and Japan.
The humiliating condescension
conspicuous In the Moscow peoplA
?probably will prove doubly sterile:
First, because the sovlets have
frequently declared they regard
no engagement binding with a
bourgeois government; and. sec
ond, because Russian Information
represents the sovlets at the end
of their tether, playing the Genoa
game as one of despair.
The Russian situation tojlay is
indescribable, despite the passive
character of the Slav. It cannot
last much longer. When Lenin.
Trotsky and their associates were
faced with concrete resistance,
such as Koltchak and Denekln
were able to muster, they easily
triumphed. Today they are about
to be faced with the unanimous,
dull and concentrated resistance
of the millions styling themselves
"no party." This crowd of dis
contented people consists nt peas
ants and workmen of the middle
classes, officers and soldiers, priests
and intellectuals, famine victims
and the populace of religious com
munities exasperated- over the
looting of their churches. The
strength of the bolshevlsts also
has been undermined by the un-.
precedcnted corruption of their
Bribery existed under the czar,
but certain regulations existed, as
is shown by the fampus words in
Gogol's play, "You steal more than
your rank allows." Today every
body in Russia Is stealing more
than their rank allows. Lenin,
moreover, has set to his credit
considerable amounts in foreign
banks ? a very considerable sum.
Sees Lloyd George Regrets.
Under these circumstances the
only hope of the soviet represen
tatives at Genoa is that, because
of the promiscuous nature of the
conference, they may be able to
make profitable business terms
with one or another of the nations.
They hope to return to Russia
with a regilded shield and exploit
the benefits of a recognition which
exists already in fact, if not in
Is this in the interests of the
western powers? Methlnks, only
to ask the question Is to answer
it: Lloyd George, who since 1919
has desired to invite the sovlets to
Paris to confer together, has suc
ceeded after three years In making
his views prevail. It remains to
be seen whether he will not be the
first to repent. The French peo
ple sincerely think the Americans
are lucky not to have embarked in
this galley. Time will prove who
is right. ?

Parliament likely to Amend
Treaties Just for
By the Associated Tress.
nARTc 4nril 15. ? The temper or
the French parliament is to adopt
some reservation to the Washington
conference treaties as a 'n""erth?J
principle, simply to '"d'"1?
France has 'independence of "lion
equal to that of the Lnited States
Stpraemier Tolncare has determined
not to make the treaties a question of
confidence in his cabinet, but to
leave parliament free to accept, re
ject or adopt the treaties with res
ervaUons. His purpose appears to be
to set forth earnestly the
ratification of the treaties. The atti
tude of the administration will be
expressed somewhat like this.
"Here are the treaties. They are
admirable, and we recommend them,
but it is for you. Kentlemen of the
annate and chamber, to decide.
* M Poincare had nothing to do t>?J"
sonally with making the treaties. He
accepted them as a legacy of former
Premier Briands policy on this sub,
Ject. and he supports Minister of the
Colonies Sarraut. whom he retained
from Briand's cabinet. ?
Owing to the bill concern^nt? reduc
tion of military service and some
other measures. the Washington!
treaties cannot be taken up until'
some time in June, and in the inter
val the ? situation may be modified.
Talk in parliamentary lobbies turns
? especially upon the naval treaty and
the need for somewhat greater lib
erty of action for France than is ex
pressed in that document.

LONDON, April 15.?The British

Once Famous Haunts Gradually
Give Way to Banks and Other
Buildings. *
By the Associated Press.
PARIS, April 15.?Prosaic com
merce. to the discomfiture of the
patrons of gaiety, is making inroads
upon that part of gay Paree between
| the Madeline and the Rue Drouot,
I known simply as "the boulevard."
i "The boulevard is dying, the boule
! vard is dead," is the melancholic com
j ment of old habitues ffpon hearing of
the disappearance of the Cafe Ameri
cain and the Cafe Neopolitan. Banks
will replace these world famous "wet
goods" shops, which for years have
been the meeting places of famous
men In the world of art and litera
ThIHy years ago financial and bus
iness houses were the exception on
the boulevard. Gay life commenced
at sundown. There was not a dark
house and rarely any one abroad in a
business suit; evening clothes were de
riguer. Now soiriber facades of banks
and stores throw their shadows over
the few remaining brightly illumi
nated cafes, and gentlemen In yellow
shoes, soft collars and peaked caps
greatly outnumber those in formal
The Cafe Tortoni, where Rochefort
and De Maupassant and their friends
were wont to congregate, was the
first to disappear. The Cafe Des An
glais, Oscar Wilde's favorite haunt,
went next. Then the Cafe Riche was
transformed Into a bank. A tailor
I occupies the building that once was
the Cafe Vernon, and now the Zaha
rofC Interests have bought the Cafe
Neopolitain. Quite fittingly an
American bank will replace the Cafe
The Cafe De La Pais la the only
one left of the famous old taverns
on the boulevard, and It is being
frowned upon by many old-time
Parisians. 'There are too many for
eigners," they aver.

BERLIN, April 15.?The flag of the
! German cruiser Scharnhorst, which
i was sunk in the battle of Falkland,
has reached the Berlin naval museum,
after a romantic journey. The cap
tain of a Brazilian ooasting vessel
found the body of a German sailor
washed ashore on the southeastern
coast of Brazil lashed to a sea chest
containing the flag.
A German resident, hearing of this,
bought the flag and offered it to the
navy department on condition that he
be reimbursed for hip outlay. But
funds were lacking until reoently
when a private collection furnished
the means to aoqufre the flag, which
Is now on exhibition alongside the
model of the cruiser Giletsenau, like
wise sunk in the same battle, and
other momentoes of Germany's naval
past. . .
