AMERICA’S PRAISE Envoy Expresses Belief Par ley’s Result Is Dawning of New Era. B> dip Associated I’rnss. LONDON, August IB.—American Ambassador Kellogg, speaking at the international conference this evening just before the lierinan and allied delegates initialed the agreements for the execution of the Dawes plan, said, addressing Premier MacDonald; "Mr. President, i cannot too highly compliment the delegates of all na tions represented at tills great inter national conference upon their firm ness. ability and broad-minded states manship,'which has brought the con ference to a successful consumma tion. It was evident from the begin ning that you came here with the firm determination to settle most of the diflieult problems, which in times of peace, have confronted the leading nations of Europe—l might say of the world. Foundation of Peace. "I believe it was evident to states men of all the world that a settle ment of the reparations, adjustment of national finances and the rehabili tation of Germany lay at the founda tion of the future prosperity of Ku rope. A permanent settlement on the basis of fairness and justice to al! nations engaged in the war was the only sure guarantee of peaee. It ■was with tills view that the repara tions commission, representing the allied eountries, appointed the Dawes committee to suggest a plan for such settlement. . "As 1 have said before, they were all able, high-minded and patriotic men. with wide public experience and knowledge of financial and economic conditions. 1 believe more than four weeks of careful study and inter course between the delegates lias demonstrated that the Hawes report was the greatest piece of construc tive work of modern times, and I wish, on behalf of my country, to ex tend to Gen. Hawes and his associ ates my sincere congratulations. America’s Support. "From the very beginning, when an expert committee was proposed, to the consummation of your work, this plan has had the hearty and loyal support of the President of the T'nited States and the American peo ple. Complicated and difficult as the problems were, that report has stood (he test of the most careful scrutiny and has been the basis of this settle ment. for it was founded on sound economic, social, and I might add, political principles, which have been evolved by the experience of the ages. "I do not for a moment minimize the difficulties which have confronted this conference and. but for your ability, your patience and your faith in the people of your various coun tries. it could not have succeeded. Disagreements there have been, growing out of difficult conditions, political and economic in different countries, hut with the determination to succeed, a confidence which never wavered, and the sincere desire of accommodation of differences, you have brought this conference to a successful issue. Dawning of \ew Day. I may be too much of an optimist, hut I believe this settlement Is the dawning of a new day, the hope of millions of people, the revival of Industry and prosperity so necessary to the happiness and progress of mankind. Animosities engendered by the war cannot continue. Nations, as individuals, must live in amity, and this conference is the beginning of the harmony which presages the brighter future. “I shall not take the time of this conference to review its work; it speaks for itself. Its daily proceed ings have been followed with intense interest by thousands of people—in no place more than in my country. "It is the first great step in the restoration of confidence in our civili zation. It puts in force a sound economic plan for reuniting German industrial life, giving the Gentian people hope for the future and an opportunity to discharge the obiiga (ions growing out ( of the war. "The influence of this settlement will be far-reaching. It will not be confined to the allies ami Germany, but will be spread to many other nations, especially those border states so Intimately connected with the great nations of Europe. There must be friendly intercourse, exchange of products and a revival of industry if Europe is to be prosperous and her people happy. , Peace Lies in Arbitration. "There is one feature of this set tlement which I wish to emphasize, and that is the recognition and fur therance of tile principles of arbitra tion for settlement of international disputes. in my opinion the great hope for the peace of the world lies in arbitration and judicial settlement between nations, and I am very glad SPECIAL NOTICES.

LABORITE SCORES BRITAIN’S POLICIES Says Record Toward League Disappointing—People Favor Organization. Bj thf* Associated Press. WILLIAMSTOWX, Mass.. August 16. —“Disappointing as has been the record of the British toward the league, no one who has had the op portunity of watching the movement of working-class opinion in Kngland doubts that it is overwhelmingly in favor of that organization,” Richard If. Tawney, active leader in the British l.abor party, said tonight at the Insti tute of Politics, in a lecture .defining the foreign policy of his parly. The discrediting of the coalition and conservative governments was largely due to the belief that they were disinclined to make a consistent attempt to remove the main impedi ments to a better international under standing, Mr. Tawney said. "Labor regards with dismay,” he continued, “a policy having as its object the or ganization of international life on the basis of a political group which aims at securing its members on favorable terms as against outsiders by means of preferential tariffs and discrimi nating duties. It believes that for any country to monopolize raw ma terials or markets is to produce re prisals and to perpetuate the strug gle for privilege which has been the background of international policies for 40 years.” Stability la Desired. "The alternative to economic im perialism is some form of economic internationalism.” Mr. Tawney said, “and it is in this direction that labor Is looking. What the observer of in ternational problems now desires Is stability, and for this reason he sup ports the Dawes plan and is even more anxious to resume trade with Russia than to collect debts from her.” Boris A. Bakhmeteft, former Rus sian ambassador to the United States, at the conclusion of his lecture this morning on the Russian situation, in answer to a question of Admiral W. W. Phelps regarding education in Russia, declared that preference was being given to young Communists. He said that the universities this year will only be able to take in 13,000 students, as compared with the 37,000 enrolled last year, and that the num ber of primary schools has declined from 70,000 to 55,000. "In regard to oil,” Dr. Bakhmeteflf said in reply to another question, “there has been only one partial con cession since 1921; the Communists are eager to develop their oil re sources, and production approaches pre-war figures.” LEVIATHAN SAILS AGAIN. NEW YORK, August 16.—The liner Leviathan, equipped with two new propellers, sailed for Cherbourg and Southampton late today, after arriv ing this morning from Boston, where she has been In dry dock for 22 hours.

FRANCE EXTENDS HOPE 10 BERLIN Private Agreement Reveals Herriot Promise of Earlier Ruhr Evacuation. By fable to Tlie Star «nd New York World. Copyright. 1924. LONDON, August 16.—The World News Service is able to announce ex clusively a fact that may have been decisive in bringing about the Ruhr agreement. Chancellor Marx received a communication, which it was in tended should he kept secret for the present from ITemlcr Herriot. Her rtot. In his communication, informs the German chancellor that in Oc tober. when the negotiations for the international loan to Germany comes up. he may he able to reconsider the p< riod of one year for evacuation of the Ruhr, which the Germans now are compelled to accept. When Stresemann met Herriot in Downing street tonight for the final plenary session the German foreign minister informed the French premier he has been inundated for the last three days with letters and telegrams begging him not to sign the agree ment. "Bo have I.” replied Herriot. and both statesmen laughed Ttie documents embodying the his toric understanding Include four pro tocols regarding the Dawes plan, a fifth protocol under which final sig nature to the other four is promised following parliamentary sanction to what the various conferences have agreed upon here, and four formal letters exchanged among the French, Germans and Belgians regarding the Ruhr. Rohr Tangle Worst. It was the Ruhr problem which held uii the agreement until this morning, when at 1 o’clock a messenger from German headquarters woke Herriot to hand him a note from Chancellor Marx informing Herriot that Ger many. while contending the Ruhr oc < upation Is illegal, “takes note” of the French decision to remain an other year. The final Ruhr agreement la In effect a compromise. Herriot stood firm for his year, but gave away on many other points and agreed to the Ger man wish as to lhe form the agree ment should take. A Franco-German conference will begin in i’arls October 1 to arrange a commercial treaty which is a part of the bargain under which the French will quit the Ruhr. The Germans have won their demand that this treaty will not he negotiated in Lon don. The next move in the Kuropean tan gle will be serious disputes between the French and the Germans as to this treaty. The main reason why Herriot, under pressure from I>ouis Laucheur, held out for a year's oc cupation was to he able to bring pressure to bear on the Germans dur ing these commercial treaty negotia tions. RATIFICATION SEEN IN BOTHCAPITALS Neither French Nor Germans Fully Satisfied, But Glad for Slight Progress. By thf* A*soci*tf*d Pr^ss. PARIS, August 16.—M. Herriofs bargain with the Germans for the evacuation of the Ruhr and the agreement on the Dawes plan have been received in political and parlia mentary circles without enthusiasm and with a rather uneasy relief, but ratification seems probable. All are glad that the agony finally is over, but few are exultant at the terms, the premier's friends and foes alike brac ing themselves for a warm debate in the chamber and senate over ratifi cation at the end of next week. And neither side appears to relish the prospect. The supporters of M. Herriot and the government are confident that ratification will be obtained easily in the chamber, and that it will be merely reluctant in the senate. Its opponents so far have displayed no vigorous intention to defeat ap proval. but the opposition leaders may accomplish much in the next few days in lining up their forces. Korn Arr Daunted. The general impression tonight, however, is that they will let off a good deal of steam during the dis cussion. yet allow the conference terms to be ratified. Some of them have expressed the view that they do not dare to defeat ratification and overthrow the government, because the work would have to be done over again under the most difficult cir cumstances, if at ail, and that if they approve under protest they can al ways blame M. Herriot when things go wrong. The French people generally wel come the settlement, but apparently there is no marked confidence that the problem has been finally solved. It is accepted rather as the most promising solution thus far, but it is argued that it was obtained at too great a sacrifice. They realize the truth of what their financial writers have been telling them—that money Is not going to pour Into France and any relief from their overwhelming debts and troublesome financial con dition, still complicated by the budget deficit, can come only through dras tic governmental economies, with higher taxation, which is far from pleasing. BERLIN O. K. EXPECTED. Marx Majority Believed Sufficient for Victory. By the Associated Prese. BERLIN, August 16.—Despite wide spread disappointment over the gov ernment’s failure to obtain a more conciliatory concession on the ques tion of the Ruhr evacuation, there is a very definite Impression current in political circles that the Marx-Strese mann cabinet will command a suffi cient majority in the Reichstag both for the approval of legislation hav ing to do with the Dawes report and on the general question of confidence with respect to the government’s pro cedure in London. While the Nationalists are already doing considerable talking in ad vance in opposition to the govern ment’s yielding on the Ruhr issue, their present protests are not view'ed as reflecting the party’s ultimate at-' titude on the floor of the Reichstag, and there is a strong suspicion that the party will refrain from casting active oppositional ballots, thus as suring the cabinet of a clear-cut ma jority., Stmemua to Explain.

ALLIES WILL HELP PLACING OF LOAN Resolution Adopted to Seek Help of Central Banks in Raising Money. By the Associated Pres. T .ON DON", August 16.—One of the final a«-ts of the international repara tions conference was the adoption of an important resolution dealing with the financial phases of the Dawes plan. The resolution reads; "It is agreed that putting into execution of the Dawes scheme and the arrangements for that purpose embodied in the present agreement depend upon the issue of a loan of SOfl million gold marks for the purpose of the plan and are condi tional on this issue. f.irvrrnaicnt Will Aid. ••The allied governments, desiring that this loan should he successfully raised and contemplating that the loan will be the first lien on security pledged thereto, will invite the cen tral hanks in their respective coun tries to use their good offices to facilitate the placing of the loan." After the resolution was formulated the American delegation made a statement in which it was declared: "We understand that this resolution does not restrict the German Gov ernment’s entire freedom in negotiat ing the loan with bankers of its own selection.” The American statement was to prevent possible restriction of Ger many’s financial negotiations to the central hanks, instead of permitting them to negotiate for the loan in the open market, and when the con ference agreed to it. the resolution was adopted. POLICE PROBE DEATH AS GIRL’S KIN MOURN Take Body to Farm Home. While “Other Woman" Is Defiant Over Slaying. By the Associated Press. BENTON" HARBOR. Mich . August 16.—While relatives of Cora May Raber today carried the body of the girl back to her farm home near Glendora, authorities continued their investigation of her slaying, for which Emil Zupke. erstwhile sweet heart. and Florence McKinney, his later friend and alleged companion on the night of the killing, are held in the county jail. Tomorrow, one week from the time the unidentified body was found in a thicket near here, the body of the slain girl will be buried in the country churchyard near her home, which she left August 6. in a wedding dress to meet Zupke after his written promise to marry her and care for her unborn baby. Meanwhile. Zupke. abandoned by his family and said by officers to have confessed to the killing of the girl, awaits arraignment in the district court, at which time he says he. will plead guilty to a charge of murder. The McKinney girl, held in the same jail, laughingly defiant, has evaded all efforts of authorities to draw from her an admission that she had any part in the actual killing of the Raber girl. bate about the midle of the following week, which would permit the Ger man government to undertake for mal ratification of the London pact before the end of the month. With the return of the German delegates it is believed that much of the misapprehension under which the German people Is now laboring with respect to the general settlement reached in London would be cleared up and that the parliamentary situa tion will be made more secure for the ministers.
