Will Demand Enough to Cover
Own Obligation, Edi
tor Says.
By Radio to The Star.
IjONDON, January s.—The new year
opens with the political world absorb
ed in the question of debts.
The Franco-American episode on the
subject has created enormous interest
here and the attitude taken by Amer
ica is approved in all quarters. It
is agreed that this has brought the
matter out of the cloud 3 of evasion
down to the bed rock question, “Does
France intend to honor her debts to
the allies?” And it clears the decks
for the conference to open Monday at
Paris at which Winston Churchill will
represent the British interests.
British Stand Defined.
It is understood that Mr. Churchill
will have no new proposals to make.
The British position has been defined
clearly and is not likely to be modi
fied. Great Britain originally was
prepared for the cancellation of the
war debts, but that is impossible. Her
present position stands thus: She
has lent £2,000,000,000 sterling to her
EuroiJlan allies and hus borrowed
roughly £1.000,000,000 of America. On
this 3.000,000,000 she is paying an in
terest of £100,000,000 annually, repre
senting an income tax of two shillings
on a pound.
She is paying interest and redemp
tion money to her creditor nation, but
she had not received a penny from
her debtor nations. If the latter had
paid in full, England would be re
ceiving £100,000,000 annually. That
is recognized as impossible and
England is prepared to cut by two
thirds the allies indebtedness, but
she cannot forego the remaining third
to cover her own indebtedness to
America which was incurred not on
her own behalf, but on behalf of her
European allies.
Modification Limit Set.
It is estimated that the payments
by England to America should be
met by contributions of £10,000,000
from Germany and £25,000,000 from
the allies. No party in the country
is prepared to consider any modifi
cation of these generous terms which
still would leave the British tax
payers carrying a net annual burden
of more than £60,000.000 in respect to
the money loaned the allies.
In reply to the suggestion of M.
Olementel, the finance minister of
France, that the allies bear the debts
according to their capacity to pay, it
is pointed out that if France imposed
taxation on the scale of British tax
ation, her capacity to meet a rea
sonable proportion of her liabilities
would not be doubted, and the posi
tion of the franc would be much
less vulnerable..
The real root of the trouble is the
failure of French statesmen to clear
the public mind of the French people
of its illusions and to insist on the
cold facts that borrowing is a fatal
substitute for taxation in national
finance, and that in the end, public
credit is the only guarantee of private
Not long ago, an eminent French
statesman was asked by his British
hostess, “When will you French
statesmen tell your people the truth?”
He shrugged his shoulders and re
plied, “Jamais:” (Never.)
In that incident is the clue to the

Census , Treating
Takers As Spies
Special Dispatch to The Star.
BALTIMORE, January s.—Belief
of the farmers that the census
enumerators are either prohibition
spies or investigators of the Gov
ernment on income tax returns is
handicapping the work of the
farm census of Maryland, accord
ing to John S. Dennee, statistician
of the Department of Agriculture,
In charge of the census in the
These fears on the part of the
farmers are groundless, Mr. Den
nee declared. He gave assurance
that no attempt is being made to
det- rmine whether the farmers are
letting their cider become hard or
their grape juice ferment. He has
taken care, he said, to hire no one
who has ever been connected with
the prohibition forces.
“Os course, others of the farm
ers, who object to giving informa
tion about their farms, adopt the
attitude that they are responsible
to no one and it is no affair of the
Government’s how they run their
farms,” said Mr. Dennee.
present situation in wnich France’s
most friendly and patient allies find
themselves compelled to say what
they ought not to be required to say,
and to point out that a country which
does not recognize its debts cannot
look for further credit.
One of the important questions of
the Paris conference will be the
validity of the American rights under
the Dawes scheme. The legal view
here Is that America’s failure to
ratify the Versailles treaty invali
dates her claims, but Winston
Churchill is going prepared to dis
cuss the matter with an open mind.
At the Spa conference in 1920 the
distribution of reparations was fixed
on an agreed-upon scale, and America
was not included among the benefici
aries, nor did she enter any claim.
Under the Dawes scheme, the scale
fixed at Spa has been preserved, and
if the American claim now put for
ward is established, that scale will
need to be modified. At present
France has received 52 per cent, Eng
land 22 and the rest of the European
allies the balance.
The view prevails here that the
American claim has been advanced
primarily as a bargaining counter in
regard to the debt problem as a
