Agree to Peruvian Proposal for Arbitrating Forty-Year Tacna-Arica Dispute. U. S. TO BE ARBITRATOR AS CASE NOW STANDS y Action Clears Way to Successful / Termination of Eight-Week Conference Here. ; By the Associated Press. f Chile has accepted the latest Peru , vian proposal for arbitration of the Tacna-Arica controversy, clearing: the way to a successful termination of the Chilean-Peruvian conference, which began here eight weeks ago. The Chilean reply was communicat ed to the Peruvian delegation last night by Chilean Ambassador Ma thieu, after the receipt of Instructions from the Santiago foreign office. It was indicated that a joint session of the conference probably would be held tomorrow to put the agreement into final form. V. 9. to Arbitrate Dispute. As it now has been accepted by both sides, the agreement provides for arbitration of the forty-year-old controversy by the United States, in the following manner: That the arbitrator decide whether a plebiscite shall be held in the dis puted province of Tacna-Arica, as originally provided by the treaty of Ancon; _ r That in case a plebiscite i$ decided * on, the arbitrator shall fix the condi itons under which it is to be held; That if the decision is against a plebiscite Chile and Peru will enter into direct negotiations to decide tO' Whom the province belongs; and i That in the event*these direct ne * pronations do not res^U.izk an agree ment within a specified time, both sides will request an exercise of "good offices'* by t**e United States to aid . in a settlement. Formula of Mr. Hughes. Except for the final clause, this is the compromise formula suggested by Secretary Hughes after the Washing ton conference had reached a dead lock June 7. The final provision, pro viding for an exercise* of "good of fices." was added at the suggestion of Peru, whose representatives regarded it as necessary to complete the form ula and make certain that all possi bilities of further controversy on the .-?ubject be eliminated. Consideration of this question has occupied the delegates during the past two weeks, both sides having previously acceded to the other pro- 1 ? visions of the formula. For a time! it appeared thiit Peru might insist j on a second arbitration in case of a 1 no-plebiscite decision, but the^ repre- I sentatlves of the Peruvian govern went here are understood to have' } strongly advised against such ai course. | Although Chile's acceptance was interpreted us insuring an agreement, much remains to be done before the ? protocol which is to include it can beJ signed. Negotiations May Bad This Week. So far the compromise formula has never been reduced to precise I phraseology, and in addition there | there are a number of minor ques tions which must be settled before the conference ends. Both the Chileans and Peruvians recently have shown a disposition i to bring the negotiations to an end j as soon as possible, and it was pre dieted generally last night that this week would see the work of the con ference well along toward comple tion, If not actually ended.

POOR- DEFENDANTS HIT Would Hesitate to Ask Jary Trial If Costs Might Devolve Upon Them. Judges of tho Police Court are in a quandary as to how to proceed in taxing losing defendants in Jury trials in order to k^ep within the law set forth in a proviso of the District appropriation bill recently passed. The text of the provision follows: "For compensation of Jurors, $9,000: Provided, That none of the money ap propriated in this act shall be avail able for the payment of Jurors' fees unless the actual cost of the trial Jury be taxed as part of the costs, and Judgment rendered therefore, to be paid by the unsuccessful litigant: Provided further. That no person in default of payment thereof shall be imprisoned on that account." PrsrtdiK la Problem. How to assess such defendants and ho-nrt to determine procedure in case the/defendant cannot pas; his assess ment is the problem which has pre sented itself to the Judges of the court in such an obverse light that Judge Robert Hardlson says recom mendations for a repeal of the pro vision would shortly be mado by the judges of the Police Court. The rec ommendations are still in preliminary form and are only tentative, nothing definite having been Anally decided as to the wording or to the manner of their presentation. They will, however, be sent to Congress with an urgent request for tho provision's repeal. Case Without Parallel. "The case Is entirely without! parallel in the history of the United! States, so far as I can recall." Judge] Hardison said. "It is, as far as we can see, unworkable. For instance, a Jury may sit on a number of cases. Some of the cases may take several days, and others only a few hours. Some of the defendants must be losers and others winners. How to determine how much shall be drawn 'from the appropriations to pay for the acquitted defendants and how much shall be assessed against the losing defendants we can- not under stand, because the United States has no fee scale or system to determine court costs in the District of Co lumbia. "Another problem presents Itself. I The class of defendants who come | before the Police Court are the Poor- j est class, probably, in the city. Why discrimination should be made, against this-'class I cannot under-1 stand." Penalised for Asking Jury. Still another angle presents Itself. The fact that the defendant who has bene found guilty Is assessed the costs of the trial. In the opinion of Judge Hardlson. la virtually penalised for asking for a Jury trial, to which he under the Constitution of the -United States is legally entitled. A person charged with having committed a criminal act Or a felony can sleet a trial by the judge or by a Jury of twelva men. If he Is likely to be aaked to pay the costs besides his fine, he will in many eases ask for a trial by the Judge. In order to escape the penalty. This Is believed to be a point which will be urged strongly in the recommendations of the Police Court Judgea in asking the repeal of the proviso. It Is interesting to' note that no such provision aa that made to the' Police Court appropriation Is attached to the appropriation for Juries in either the Municipal or the Juvenile courts.

GERMANS TO ASK FOR MORATORIUM, FAKjHE Experts Leave for Paris to Beg Reparations Commission to Extend Payments. FRENCH EXPECTED MOVE AFTER MARK'S DESCENT Official! Here Believe Fiance Hut Give Belief If Utter Collapse Ii to Be Averted. Br the Associated Press. BERLIN, July 8.?It was seml-offi dally stated this afternoon that two German experts were going to Paris today to ask the reparations com mission for a moratorium by which Germany would be enabled to spread her cash payments over a longer period. By the Anocllted I'm*. PARIS, July 8.?News received here that Germany intended to ask the reparations commission for a mo ratorium on cash payments, and that Dr. Fischer, chairman of the German war debts commission, and Herr Schroeder, under secretary of the ministry of finance, had left Berlin for Paris, excited no surprise among the members of the commission. As yet, however, the commlssjon has re ceived no communication from Berlin on the subject. Freaeh Wot Alarmed. The dlzxy fall of the rnarK, which recently occurred, had Immediately aroused speculation as to vjiat Ger many would do, and the conclusion most 'observers reaped was that she would take advantage of the situa tion to ask further leniency, j Germany's cash payments this year and the major part of her reparations I payments for 1923 would go toward j meeting the Belgian priority claims, and. therefore, there Is no Immediate concern among the French authori ties regarding the effect of suoh a move by Germany on French finances, although the seriousness of German conditions Is generally recognized. The Temps takes advantage of the present developments to reiterate the" French view that while a moratorium may be necessary, the real need in Germany 'is a drastic overhauling of the finances of the government, the stoppage of the money-- printing presses and the manifestation of a real desire on the part of the Ger mans to put their house in order. , SEE NEED FOB LENIENCY. American Officials In Touch Through Departmental Reports. By the Associated Press. Germany, facing a political and economic situation generally admit ted as most serious, must, in the ylew of American officials as expressed yesterday, look . across the Rhine to France for necessary relief. France. It was stated yesterday by one official In cln^e touch with devel opments In Europe, must loosen her grip upon the reparations situation to lighten Germany's financial burden or utter collapse of the former strong central power may result and a radi cal regime arise from the ruins. Help from the United States, it generally is maintained by official here, can only be given Germany In the form of loans of private capital, land Germany can obtain loans only through the offer of sufficiently pro tective security to attract Investors. Under the present reparations scheme It appears to officials here that ail of Germany's resources are bound to i the wheel of allied payments and held close by the hand of /France, fo that unless Germany can obtain conces sions to permit of the pledging of lomt of her potential wealth as security all hope of financial assist ance from without must be aban doned. Frssce Raids the Key. The situation in ^Germany finan cially and economically has been: made known to officials of the Ameri can government not through any for mal communication from the German embassy but by means of reports from American representatives in j Germany of the State and Commerce 1 departments. These hare been sup-' j plemented by Information gl?en by | American business men who have been in Germany recently or have representatives there with whom they are in close touch and by frequent conversations between members of the German embassy staff and public men In Washington who tfe concern ed with the European situation. All 'of these reports and communi cations were said to agree vary closely in certain general conclusions. The salient feature la the conviction expressed that France holc|s the key to the solution of this great problem of the rehabilitation of German finances and upon her attitude in the collection of payments, due under the reparation clauses of the Ver sailles treaty, win depend the very existence of the present Wirth gov ernment in Germany, Even should Germany meet the reparations In stallment of 50,000,900 gold marks due en July if it was daolared to Ms heyocd rsssen that farther paymaats (Continued on Page G, Column C) FEAR TARIFF BILL EFFECTSAT POLLS Republican Senators Would Delay Passage Until After Election. With reports of opposition in many parts of the country to the Fordney McComber tariff bill piling in upon them, some of the republican mem ber* of the Senate are searching" the (orison for a means -of escape from the consequences which they fear may follow upon the heels of the pas???? of the bill. The specter of republican defeat in t|ie congressional elections of 1910, following closely the passage of the Payne-Aldrich tariff law, is raising ita head. At least two republican senators "from New England have recently re turned to Washington, shaking their heads and predicting dire things If the rates carried In the tariff bill are not reduced. Thef-e are some of the republicans In the senate who believe in th? tariff bill, who would like to see it become a law. But there are others who would be glad to see the measure side tracked; sidetracked with the blame placed upon the shoulders of the democrats. Ever sines"'the tariff debate began In th? Senate, weeks and months ago. there have been charges from the re publican side of-.the chamber that the democrats were "filibustering"; that they did not Intend to let the tariff bill pus, at least until just before election day, In November. This week the republicans brought In a motion to limit debats on the taWff bill, requiring a two-thirds vote to be adopted. They knew beforehand that It would be defeated by demo crats votes. So they arc In a posi tion to say that they tried to get the bill through, but couldn't. If the I measure should finally be sidetracked. Possible Postponement. I And; now. It was said yesterday, | still another move may be made, os tensibly to put an end to the debate | on the tariff bill, and bring the meas l ure to a vote, but which, if it la tried I out, probably will result In post | ponement of action on the bill until | after the elections. This Is a pro posal to amend the rules of the Senate so that debate may be limited | by a majority vote of the Senate, In stead of two-thirds. The proposed new rule would apply only In the case of revenue and appropriation bills. Ostensibly, suoh a move on the part of the republicans would be in the interest of hastening the final dis position and passage of the tariff bill. In reality. It would probably sound tl?e death knell not only of the tariff bill but also of the soldier bonus bill for the present session of Congress. The majority cloture proposal would lead to a filibuster that probably would run for weeks. The demo crats, some of them, would approve such a change In the rules if pre-, sented at another time, but not now while the tariff bill la up. Also there are republican senators who would oppose violently such a change In the rules of the Senate. Denial was made yesterday by Sen ator lodge, the republican leader, and by Senator Curtis, vice chairman of the republican conference and' ".whip," that a move for majority ..cloture would be made at this time." May Demand Crafwon. But other republican senators who have sponsored the -majority cloture plan say otherwise. Furthermore, they propose to discuss the matter with the republican leaders early this week. They may even" demand a party conference on the matter. At the last republican conference of the Senau, ,a Uw weeks ago. a commit tee was appointed to draft-* new rule ? (Continued on F?*e &, Column 15 ^ v'' . ?iV.. . '? ??

Bj the Anoclatpd Prm. v Alignments in the coal strike situation appeared substantially unchanged last night upon the return to Washington of President Harding, who convened repre sentatives of the operators and miners ?here on Monday in the hope that a set tlement might be reached. The return of the President gave an opportunity for the cabinet officers who have partici pated In pending settlement efforts to make reports. While anthracite operators and union officials from the anthracite fields were leaving the capital -lor the week end, Al fred M. Ogle, chairman oftthe general conference and leader of the bituminous operators, and John K L?wls, president of the United Mine Workers, returned to make preparations for tomorrow's meetings.

Secretaries Hoover and Davis, who have sat In the bituminous conference, held a lengthy discussion of the matter | yesterday, but in government quarters I silence was maintained as to prospective action. An Impression prevailed that the bituminous section of the conference might come to at least temporary sus pension tomorrow with its original dis agreement, in which the union seeks na tional or seral-natlonal wage negotiation and the operators tender district nego tiation, uncompromisingly defined. The tie-up of operations In the anthracite fields, though classified as "work sus pension" rather than a strike, persists through demands of operators for lower ed wage scales, the degree to be fixed by arbitration, and union unwillingness to recede from levels of 1820 wage con tracts. The wage situation also accounts for the Insistence of operators In the widely scattered bituminous fields up. on district settlements, and the union demand for a national scale, or the seml-natlonal standards fixed by the four states of the central competitive field, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Penn sylvania. District settlements, It Is granted by all concerned, would weaken In a number of ways resist ance to wage reductions except pos sibly In Illinois.

Clyne, district attorney, and Robert Levy, United States marshal, in telegrams from Attorney General Daugherty. The calling out of troops in Illinois, the assembling of soldiers in half a dozen other states and the intervention of the federal courts in the nation-wide strike of railway shopmen marked the close of the eighth day of the walkout tonight. , INJUNCTIONS AGAINST PICKETS. The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad tonight secured a federal injunction here restraining picketing at the Aurora shops, while earlier in the day an injunction was issued at New Orleans restraining strikers from interfering with trains on the Southern Pacific, and at Council Bluffs, Iowa, the Burlington obtained a temporary restraining order directed against striking shopmen in southern Iowa. A half dozen other railroads were expected to follow the lead of the Burlington here.

Sterling of Illinois to night ordered troops to Clinton, where an outbreak was threatened following a clash between Illinois Central guards and strike sympathizers in which a boy was killed and two men. one a striker, were injured. One bright ray 'appeared through the threatening strike clouds tonight when D. W. Helt, president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen, announced he would withhold strike orders to 14,000 signalmen pending the preparation and submission of a program to the United States Rail road Labor Board. Mr. Helt's announcement was made following an all-day conference with W.

Plus ?? Opm Shops. With B. M. Jewell, head of the shop crafts, and the Labor Board each standing Arm in the attitude that peace overtures must come from the other, the railroads tonight were girding for the second week of the struggle, determined to maintain un interrupted transportation and thus break the strike. Many roads were preparing to open their shops the first of the week, when the ultlmktum to strikers to return or lose their seniority rights expires. Some carriers have applied for troops to protect employes and prop erty In this move; others are making arrangements to afford private pro tection to employes who 'remain at work and others that are being em ployed.
