PARIS, November 3. —Ambassador Jusserand will call at the Slate De partment In Washington Monday and present Premier Poincare's complete < explanation of the French stand In ‘ regard to American participation In the.experts’ meeting to assist In solv ing the reparations problem. Ambassador Jusserand, it Is said, ■will receive his instructions upon his nrrival In Washington tomorrow. Premier Poincare received Lord Crowe, the British ambassador, to day and asked him to transmit a re quest to his government to delay Its formal reply to the French reserva tions until an Indication has been re ceived as to the Washington atti tude. following the Hughes-Jusseraifc interview Monday. Has Two Conditions. A The Star Is informed that Ambas sador Jusserand Is instructed to say that France accepts a full Inquiry * into Germany’s capacity to pay, but will be firm on two points—first, that the expert Inquiry and discussion t shall not attempt to modify the total amount'*of the reich obligation al ready fixed. Second, that the question of the French occupation of the Ruhr shall not be discussed. On the first point, M. Jusserand is .Instructed to say that the debt total }.could not be modified without the ■consent of the French parliament for an amendment of the treaty of Ver sailles itself. In regard to the Ruhr occupation, the French will point out that this step was taken after the reparation -.commission had formally declared Germany In default. * France, Premier Poincare em phasized today, will not abandon any of the guarantees she now holds, ex cept In return for effective payments by Germany, and this whole question, he believes, lies outside the scope of an expert Inquiry. Official circles In Paris tonight ex plain the premier’s direct dealing with Washington as evidence of a sincere desire to maintain friendly relations with the United States. Because of this sincere feeling, It Is said, France 4 : would rather give up all hope of American co-operation at the outset t than have the expert commission meet with America present, and then be obliged to interfere with the work of the commission—or perhaps even f , -withdraw French participation. Clarifies Situation. Premier Poincare's note has the \ effect of allowing President Coolldge I and Secretary Hughes to Judge with in the next forty-eight hours wheth er the United States will lend Its ■ co-operation or not. The situation Is regarded here to night as being at last clear. Premier Poincare received Ambas sador Herrick this morning, but the latter did not carry any Instructions from Washington, nor did he at f tempt to engage the premier in any sort of discussion of the reparation question. His visit was merely In the nature of a courtesy call. With the premier's next visitor to day, however, the case was different. This visitor was Lord Crewe, the British ambassador. Lord. Crewe stated frankly thA his government greatly regretted the restrictive formula with respect to the expert survey which has been introduced by Poincare In the text of the pro posed Invitation to Washington. Fears United States Withdrawal. Britain, Lord Crewe explained, has long been accustomed to working with France In matters of intema ' tlonal interest, and if the British government alone were Involved, London would be Inclined to aooept the French ideas and still carry out a serious and useful inquiry, Lord (Continued on Page 2, (Column 4.)

November 3.—Joseph Matthes, the separatist leader, an nounced today, in what he labelled an official communique, that It was the Intention of the separatists to re occupy /Alx-la-Chapelie. “Wo are planning to retake Alx-Ia- Chapelle,” he said In his communi cation, "and within a few days our troops will be matching Into the Pal atinate and other of our forces will seize Essen. That is our answer to Belgium's action at Aix-la-Chapelle in disarming our soldiers and bring ing about our retreat.” In a note addressed to the Belgian high commissioner here Matthes pro tested against the Belgian orders disarming his men, contending the separatists were forced to take up arms because of the danger of an at tack by their enemies, chiefly the communists and nationalist police. Ha says he notified the Belgian au thorities concerning his plans to cap ture the Rathaus at Alx and as there were rio objections went ahead to carry out his program. “The Belgians' action at Alx-la- Chapelle,’* concluded the separatist leader, “Is clearly an act against In dependent Rhinelanders and material ly aids the Berlin government.” The protest was sent to the d3rit- Ish and French commissioners also, but the British commissioner return ed the copy still In the unopened envelope.

KENTUCKY COLT MAKES RUNAWAY OF BIQ RACE Time, 3.00 4-5, Slow for Mile and Three-Quarters—4s,ooo Sec Big Event. By the Associated Press. LATONIA, Ky„ November 3.—A Kentucky bred and owned horse, with a Kentucky boy in the saddle, caused the greatest surprise that has climaxed a turf spectacle .In years today, when In Memorlam defeated the peerless Zev and his greatest American rival. My Own, In the $50,- 000 Latonia Championship stakes be fore a crowd of 45,000 spectators, who braved a cold, drizzling rain to witness the startling upset. The victory of the handsome bay son of McGee-Enchantress, owned by Carl Wiedemann, millionaire horse man of Newport, Ky., was convinc ing. Sprinting Into the streten. In Memorlam conquered Zev, the con queror of Papyrus and winner of the Kentucky derby, raced him Into sub mission and flashed across the wire a winner by at least six lengths. Back of the flashing heels of Zev came Rear Admiral Cary T. Grayson's My Own. trailing eight lengths. Rialto, the fourth start In the race, was distanced In the stretch and pull ed up without even trying to c4tch the flying leaders. Time of Race Slow. The race, at a grueling test of one and three-quarter miles, was run in 3.0 4-5. 0.5 1-5 slower than the Ameri can record tor the distance establish ed by Rockmlnlster In the same race a year ago. By strange coincidence Jockey Mack Garner, the pride of Kentucky's knights of the saddle, who rode In Memorlam to victory today, holds, the distinction of riding Rockmnlister when that three-year-old established the record. The triumph of In Memorlam was a stunning surprise. Kentucky, rich In thoroughbred tradition, knows race horses, but If any horse-wise person had been asked last night what he thought of In Memorlam’s chances the reply probably would have been: "In Memorlam hasn't much of a chance, but he may spring an upsst.” Sinclair Low, $03,000. Harry F. Sinclair, owner of Zev, evidently was convinced that Zev could not be beaten, because he plunged $63,000 In the pari-mutuel machines before the race. Sinclair first wagered $30,000. Then he dump ed $20,000 more. As the hour for the start drew near he wagered an addi tional $9,000 and finally threw $4,000 m6re on Zev'a chances to win. These sums were wagered at the track this afternoon, in addition to the amounts he wagered before leaving the east. Because Zev and My Own were such overwhelming favorites a $2 ticket In the pari-mutuels on In Memorlam paid the liberal price of $23.60 to win. The price on Zev was 40 cents to sl, while the figure on My Own was $3.75 to sl. The odds on Rialto were $14.90 to sl. The spectacle, aside from the three minutes of stirring struggle, was the most brilliant In the history of the classic race. The crowd at the finish cheered wildly as Jockey Garner, his boyish face alight, was lifted to the platform In front of the stand and took his place with Owner Wiede mann, while James M. Cox, former Governor of Ohio, made the presenta tion speech In presenting Wiedemann with a gold cup valued at $6,000. The crowd let loose another shriek as -a floral piece of American beau ties was draped over the shoulders of Jockey Garner, Wiedemann and R. J. Gilmore, trainer of In Memorlam, while the beaten Zev and My Own walked slowly away drooping under their blankets. Wiedemann, who won s6o*ooo in cash as first prize for In Memorlam’s triumph, presented the boyish-looking Garner with a check for SIO,OOO as a reward for his victory. Track Llfht>las Fast.

By the Associated Press. NEW YORK. November 3. —David Lloyd George, war premier of Great Britain, tonight was on his way home in a flower-filled suite on the Ma jestic. confident that his plea for linking the United States and the British empire for world peace had been well received on his extended tour of Canada and the United States. The stocky little Welshman sailed at midday with a final word on the reparations crisis. The effectiveness of Anglo-American co-operation, he repeated In the golfing phraseology of his last address at the Metro politan Opera House last night, de pended upon whether America “fol lowed through” the proposal of Sec retary Hughes for an international commission to settle tho sums that the defeated nations could and should PAY- France, he was confident, would need the advice of the United States and Britain regarding German rep arations. Debt of France. “France would have been a vassal country but for your country and mine,” he said, spiritedly. Fears for the safety of Mr. Lloyd George at the hands of a Hindu dis ciple of Gandhi, antl-Brltlsh leader In India, prompted federal officials to bar all visitors from the Majestic un til the former premier was in his cabin with his family and bodyguard. Tho Gandhist was removed from the vessel because of alleged irregu larities In his passports. He was known .to have followed Lloyd George at the outset of his tour of this con tinent and to have been detained by Canadian authorities, according to federal officials. Crowd at Pier. A crowd of several hundred was on the pier to bid Mr. Lloyd Georg© fare well. The police, who twice had foiled attempts of Irish republicans In this city to Insult the former statesman, escorted him In consider able numbers from his hotel. Mr Lloyd George sailed in complete Ig norance of the Hindu incident. Lloyd George was sorry to leave. Ho had found America “hospitable,” Its people “warm-hearted,” his voice broke a little; his gratitude waS al most childlike. “Everywhere I went I was wel comed,” he declared. "T s hat touched me most of all. They were all glad to see me.” A delegation from the Sulgrave In stitution presented Mr. Lloyd George with an insignia carrying honorary life membership.

William Delier Is Likely to Die. • V Three Washington athletes were in jured, one probably fatally, when the automobile in which they were said to be speeding threw a wheel and turned turtle near Surrattsvllle, Md., last mid night. William Delier, about twenty-two years ago, former foot ball star of the Mohawk team, of 1118 G street southeast. Is dying at Casualty Hos pital. He is suffering from a frac ture of the skull and severe internal Injuries. The other Injured are: Aubrey Green of 520 Bth street southeast, suffering from severe cuts and bruises, but not in a serious con dition, at Casualty Hospital. ~ Charles J. Havenner of 521 7th street southeast, also suffering from cuts and bruises, but not in a serious condition, at Providence Hospital. Each of the last named is about twenty-on© years old. Escapee Miraculous. That any of the occupants of the automobile, which was being driven by Green, escaped Instant death was regarded by persons whg viewed the demolished car as nothing short of miraculous. According to Alfred J. Day of Ana costia, D. C„ who rushed Green to the hospital, witnesses at the scene said the automobile was flashing down the road toward Washington at a mlle-a-mlnute-or-so clip when a right rear wheel dropped off, starting the car on a series of somersaults. Marks In the road, according to Day. showed that the automobile had turned over five ;times. bef'ore coming to rest on the side In a gulley. Before It stopped it sideswiped an automobile parked on the roadside occupied by Raymond Robey of Wal dorf, Md., and a companion, Day said. The parked car was not seriously damaged, however. Delier was placed on the operating table Immediately upon arrival at Casualty Hospital, and Dr. Mink and Dr. Dull sewed up his wounds In a desperate effort to save the fast wan ing life. The right side of his skull was crushed almost to a pulp, and loss of blood had made his condition so enfesbled that it waa with diffi culty the surgeons wage ablate werk. WILL OUTLINE CITY’S NEEDS m YEARS Bell Plans Survey to Enable Congress and Commission ers to Plan Ahead.

This will provide the Commission ers and Congress with a detailed sur vey of the needs of the highway di \'islon. the sewer department, the wa ter department and similar municipal agencies for the next five years. Will Gather Data. Capt. John E. Wood, 'assistant Engineer Commissioner, who has worked with school officials in plan ning the future, school-building pro gram, will take an active part In gathering the data for the five-year programs of the other municipal services and It is probable that in working out these various surveys the department heads will seek to arrive at figures that would enable them to bring the highways, the sew ers and the water systems up to the needs of the city within that time. • In preparing the regular annual estimates for Congress the city au thorities have not been able for sev eral years to ask for what each de partment needs, but must cut their figures according to ths imitations laid down for them. As a result, practically every branch of the serv ice has fallen behind Just as tho 1 school system has outgrown Its class ! room space. The purpose of the data, which it is now proposed to collect will bo to show clearly what tho accumulated needs of each, department are and how appropriations- would have to be made to catch up in five years.

FIGHT NEW MIC CODE Say More Policemen, Not More Regulations, Are Needed for Capital. On the eve of an Investigation into traffic conditions in Washington, through which its author. Senator J. Helsler Ball, Chairman of the District committee, hopes to bring about a complete change of the traffic system in Washington, a survey last night found District officials preparing to show that traffic conditions are as well handled as In any other city of its size and that the last three years have brought decided Improvement. These District officials, it was learned, will base their arguments on a plea that Congress provide more policemen to enforce present regula tions, Instead of having Congress pro vide more regulations to be enforced by what they declare to be an In adequate number of traffic policemen. An investigation of figures made public In recent years by the police department discloses that'from Jan uary 1 to September 30 of the present year there have been sixty deaths in the District from all types of traffic accidents, including street cars, auto mobiles. railroad trains and other ve hicles. Figures are not available to compare this number with other cal endar years, but the annual reports of Inspector A. J. Headley, chief of the traffic burfeau, showed the follow ing results In fiscal years: From July 1. 1922, to July 1, 1923, there were 62 deaths. From July 1, I*2l, to July I, 1*22, there were 60 deaths. From July 1, I*2o, to July 1, 1921, there were 65 deaths. Other Years Higher. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1919, there were seventy-six deaths, and for the fiscal year ending June 30; 1918. there were elghty-slx deaths. . In the consideration of these fig ures, It should also be borne in mind. District officials point out, that the automobiles are constantly Increas ing In number, while the death list has actually shown some decrease. For Instance, in 1918 there were 34,000 automobiles registered, with a death list for that fiscal year of elghty-slx persons. In 1920 there were 66,000 automobiles, with sixty five deaths. There were slxty-two deaths In the last fiscal year, despite the presence of 101,000 automobiles on District streets. Ask More Policemen. Ringgold Hart, chairman of the Commissioners' traffic committee, said last night that what the city needs is more policemen, not more regula tions. "In my opinion, the present traffic code of the District Is a good one,” said Mr. Hart, who served as assis tant corporation counsel at Police Court for a number of years. "Accl- ■ dents are caused by failure to comply with the existing regulations, and the only way to get strict compliance is to have an adequate number of traf fic officers to apprehend violators.” Mr. Hart said recently he visited Pittsburgh, Atlantic City and a num ber of other cities, from which he gained the Impression that other large centers appeared to have more policemen available for traffic direc tion than Washington. Inspector Albert J. Headley, chief of the police traffic bureau, who is scheduled to be the first witness be fore the Senate committee when It convenes tomorrow, declined last night to disclose his views on the (Continued on Page 2, Column 2.)

NO RELIEF IN SIGHT, •HUSBAND DECLARES Foreign Governments and Steam ship Companies Blamed for Condtiions. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, November 3.—M° re than 3,000 would-be immigrants, in cluding 1,367* who came on the Le viathan, which arrived today from England, face deportation, it was an nounced tonight by Commissioner of Immigration Curran, who said yearly quotas of several countries had been exhausted. Quotas of eleven countries, includ ing British Isles, have been exhaust ed, Commissioner Curran said he had been informed by telephone by Com missioner General of Immigration Husband of Washington. Mr. Curran said he expected about 2,000 British subjects would be sent back unless some of them, along with subjects of other countries, were allowed to en ter under special rulings. Russia also has exceeded her quota by 500, Mr. Curran said, while the other immigrants likely to be de ported come from Greece, Egypt, Africa, Albania, Turkey. Palestine. Portugal, "other European" and "other Asia,” under which several smaller nations are listed. 10,000 Are In Harbor. More than 10,000 immigrants are on ships in the harbor awaiting exam ination at Ellis Island, the commis sioner said. He characterized the In flux as one of the "worst Jams" that the department has ever faced. In addition to the 1,367 on tue Levia than. there were 523 on the Majestic, 548 on the Belgenland, 158 on the Cleveland and about 400 aliens on other vessels who were in excess of quotas. Most of the British were said to be on the Leviathan- Commissioner Curran declined to say whether the aliens would be de ported at once, declaring the disposi tion of tlihlr cases would be settled by Washington authorities. He attrib uted the exhaustion of the British quota partly to the unusual rush of British immigrants across the Cana dian border and also to the great in flux of aliens from Great Britain to American ports in the past few days in order to enter before their allot ment was filled. A total of 2,269 aliens were exam ined at Ellis Island today. They were brought from three ships, the Celtic, Volendam and the Patria. About 1,700 aliens were on -the Island to night, the commissioner said, while on Friday night therfe were 1,900 aliens. There were more than 400 In excess of sleeping accommodations. Commenting on this situation, he de clared the reason for th's crowding was due to the fact “that of the 1,600 Immigrants taken to the island Friday from the national Greek liner Byron, authorities were forced to detain 800." Calls Situation Unprecedented. “I believe this condition to be un precedented," he added. "There were 600 Russians, 100 Greeks, 60 Ru manians and about 50 Turks. Many of these came with no funds with which to travel to their ultimate destinations, others had insufficient money with which to live on until they obtained positions and many have disease or other physical de fects, indicating they may not be able to earn a living. "Os the 800 detained not more than fifty detentions were caused by ex ces quotas. All the rest are Inad missible for various other reasons and certainly a large percentage of them will be deported.” The commissioner severely de nounced foreign governments and steamship* companies that permitted aliens to leave home In this condi tion. He said it would take at least a week to examine all the 10,000 Im migrants in the harbor. NO BELIEF IN SIGHT. Only British Isles, Not Dominions, Affected by Quota Exhaustion. British subjects arriving in the United States yesterday on the Leviathan, numbering 1,358, probably cannot be admitted to the United States and may have to be deported as Immigrants inadmissable under the quota immigration law. The Shipping Board was notified of the fact yes terday by Commissioner General of Husband. Authorities at Ellis Island will be notified of the situation, but the Im migrants will be allowed to land and undergo examination and the final decision as to their admissibility will not be made until reports from all the immigration stations have been assembled. On the first examination of figures yesterday, however. Mr. Husband found that the British quota, which Is slightly over 77,000 per year, was practically exhausted. Only the British Isles are affected . (Continued on Pago 2, Column 1.) ILL, FAJLBAE CANCELS DATE. KANSAS CITY, Mo., November 3.
