tl e allied premiers at tlie earliest pos
sible moment is absolutely necessary.
Whether the conference should be held
in lxnidon or Paris has not yet been
''t-scussed. The meeting of the council
of ambus-ado i s, scheduled for this week,
Will not be held until next week.
The Germans in their note delivered
Wednesday asked that a joint commis
sion of exports fix the value of the
German deliveries on reparation ac
count, which they claimed already more
than equalled the 20,000,000,000 mark
tulal, while the reparations commission'*
sures showed a balance of 12,000.000,000
Marks due. It was pointed out in allied
quarters, however, that the German ex
perts already had been heard by the
commission before It fixed the valuation
of the German deliveries credited as
pajments against the 20,000,000,000
marks.
BRITISH RENEW PLANS
TO SEIZE HAMBURG
Communist Coup in Germany
Fails to Scare Allies.

If Germany calculated that the Com
munist coup d'etat which is reported to
have occurred in Hamburg and other
German cities might Influence British
public opinion against the enforcement
of the allied sanctions in connection with
the Berlin Government's refusal to ac
cept the Paris reparations , figures she
has again diametrically miscalculated
the result of the disorders. Indications
here to-day were that the news from
Germany had distinctly strengthened
1lie ha.n(is of the Lloyd George Govern
ment toward strong measures.
In naval circles here it was reported
that plans were made to seise Hamburg
and other German ports at the time of
the failure of the reparations confer
ence in London early this month. These
plans were shelved in the interest of
the Khineland action, in which the
?orces of Great Britain. France and Bel
gium advanced further into Germany.
But it was stated to-day that these
naval plans had been brought forward
again, this time it being proposed to go
into Hamburg, not for the purpose of
enforcing the allied sanctions, but to
protect British interests against revo
lution.
?Amoiiij the bankers and commercial
men here who at the time of the repara
tions conference doubted the a.bllity of
Germany to pay the 226,000,00u,000 marks
gold demanded of her there has been
a notable tendency during the last
twenty-four hours in favor of support
ing the Government, in view of another
German "So" to the allied reparations
demands. The report that the Allies
tuight Eeize the gold reserve of the
Reic.irbank was ridiculed, but in many
financial quarters in London it is be
lieved that other coercive measures now
are plainly indicated.
The German refusal of the demands of
the Interallied Reparations Commission
?has overshadowed the Silesian plebiscite
question, !t having been stated authori
i atively that there was now no real rea
son for settling the Upper Silesian prob
lem until Germany has, first of all, in
dicated her willingness to pay, at least
to the best of her ability. This attitude
was reflected when Tow Shaw (Labor)
suggested in the House of Commons to
night that tlie differences with Germany
over the amount of the reparations be
settled by arbitration. Mr. Shaw's pro
posal met with a storm of "noes" from
the benches and the Government refused
t o take any notice of the suggestion. It
was stated In the House of Commons
ThatGermanyhad been given every oppor
tunity to present her case and that the
Ueparntions Commission had decided it
fafter a full hearing.

ALL AGAINST THE REUS
James Speyer Would Follow
the Business Lead Taken
by Great Britain.
The question adressed by The New
York Herai.d to various prominent
business men and publicists regard
ing their opinions on the advisability
of opening trade relations with Soviet
Russia has brought replies which in
dicate wide divergence of opinion ou
the subject.
While S. Davies Warfleld informed
this newspaper yesterday that he fa
vored immediate establishment of
trade relations with Russia, Hugh
Frayne, New York State organizer of
the American Federation of Labor,
declared himself to be opposed to any
agreement which might lead to recog
nition of the Bolshevist Government.
Ralph Peters expressed the opinion
that America should meet the request
of Russia in the most friendly man
ner, while Thomas A. Edison stated
that he could see no advantage for
this Government in the move. James
Speyer believes the question should
be setled on business considerations.
Both the American Defence Society
and the National Civic Federation
went on record as strenuously op
posed to any trade agreements with
the Soviets. Replies to The New
York Herai.d'8 question follow:
WARFIELD FAVORS PLAN.
Baltimore, March 24.
To the Editor of The New York Hkkai.d :
In reply to your telegram as to an ex
pression of opli.lon in respect to Rus
sia having- asked the United States to
enter Into trade agreement following
Great Britain, 1 beg to say that in my
judgment the United States should im
mediately enter into trade relations with
Russia. One reason for the general
business decline in this country is that
foreign markets, owing to after war
conditions, have not been made avail
able to us. Not only should we enter
! into trade relations with Russia but vig
orous steps should be tanen to extend
our trade relations with all natlbns.
President Harding's purpose to Opt n up
the markets of the world to Anoer!:jt>>?

Judgment, and to begin with Russia Is
highly desirable. Great Britain has been
advancing her commercial interests
throughout the world, while we have
been marking time altogether too long.
S. Davie a Warfield.
RESUME, SAYS SPEYER.
To the Editor of The New York Herald .
Wo have not been and are not at -war
?with Russia. Therefore, It seems to me
that the question of making a trade
agreement with that country should be
decided on sound business considera
tions. We should do what is best for
our people and our trade, regardless of
European politics or European preju
dices.
Russia can produce many tilings that
we can buy, and which the world needs,
and we produce and manufacture many
things that Russia needs. The sooner
normal trade relations are reestablished
all over the world the better it will be
for every one. Great Britain, aa usual,
! has taken the business view and shown
the way. James 8peter.
SCHURMAN GIVES APPROVAL.
To the Editor of The New York Herald :
Replying to your Inquiry whether, In
mv opinion, wo should accept Russia's
>ropoaal to enter Into a trade agreement
with iier I would point out:
1. That such an agreem- nt would not
>e a recognition of the Russian Gov
, ornment by the United States.
2. That if. as The Herald reports, the
Russian Government has abandoned the
policy of stirring up revolution in other
countries the main reason for the'
United State* refusing to enter into any
relations, even commercial relations,
with Russia disappears.
S. That If the Russian people are will
ing to endure the Soviet Government
with the dictatorship enforced by the
leaders of the proletariat and the op
pression of the rest of the people It Is no
concern of other nations, and especially
It i* no reason for our refusing to trade
with thom.
4. That the Soviet Government of
Russia, with its twin pillar* of despot
ism at home and revolution abroad
being Inevitably destined to fall, the
vital Question to-day Is win thor the first

j why other nations, and especially pro

to have their merchants luiy and sell

SOVIET TRADE OPPOSED
BY CIVIC FEDERATION
Opposition to resumption of trade re
lations with Russia by the United States
Government was expressed last night in
a letter to Secretary of State Hughes
from the National Civic Federation and
in a telegram to Secretary of Commerce
Hoover from the board of trustees of
the American Defence Society.
The letter to Secretary Hughes, signed
by Alton B. Parker, president of the
National Civic Federation, called atten
tion to a resolution adopted on January
13. which pledged the National Civic
Federation to "support the incoming
Administration iti its resistance against
the sinister commercial Interests and
fomentors of social unrest, who by
urging trade relations with the Soviet |
regime or direct recognition of it are |
working together to perpetuate the ]
chaos into which Russia has been j
plunged by Lenlne and Trotzky."
The telegram to Secretary Hoover, !
signed by E. R. Hooker, chairman of I
the board of trustees of the American
Defence Society, expressed "gratifica
tion on your prompt reaction against
the insidious proposals which recently
have come out of Russia."
JAPAN CLAIMS SPECIAL
RIGHTS IN EAST RUSSIA
Protection to Be Basis of
Recognition of Reds.
By thK Associated /'res*.
Tokio, March 24.?Viscount L'cliida,
the Foreign Minister, said in the Diet
to-day that the Powers fully recognized
that fir Eastern Siberia stood in spe
cial relatlorship to Japan, and that
there fore Japan's rights and interests
in that territory would receive their full
consideration. Their protection would
form a condition on which the Russian
Government would be recognized, he
added.
A representative asked why Japan
was hesitating when It is rumored the
United States was contemplating open
ing trade with Russia, as this doubtless
would include the Far East, where, ho
declared. America had long been ambi
tious to gain a foothold. Masano Hani
hara., Vice-Foreign Minister, replied that
Japan was not negotiating with Russia
for a resumption of trade at present.
The Budget Committee of the House
of Representatives brought up 1 news
Taper report from the United States to
the effect that as a result of an agree
ment with Great Britain the United
States would concentrate her naval
strength In the Pacific.
Vice-Admiral Kato, the .Minister of
Marine, said that Judging from reports
in the possession of the authorities,
there was every reason to believe the
report groundless. Even if tt Were true.
Vice-Admiral Kato added, the question
was of such grave diplomatic Import
that discussion of it would bo undeslr

petitive bidding for Russian commerce.
If financial loss results It will stand
that !"S?, believing the demands of the
piv ent and future require a more dis
interested statesmanship than is in
volv I in such a programme.
President Harding and his Secretary
of Slate are preparing to reestablish the
| relations of the United States with the
European and Asiatic worlds. Hussla
I and Ku.-.sian affairs must enter Into that
programme.
In his desire to have a clear purview
of the field before taking action, they
are especially interested in the Far East
ern portion of the world, and will want
to know just how the settlement of the
Russian question will affect matters in
the Pacific. They will want to know
whether Siberia is to be separated from
Russia proper, and if so whether Japan
proposes to control it directly or indi
rectly. They will want to know just
what attitude France and England pro
pose to take relative to maintaining the
territorial integrity of Russia, to which
the Wilson Administration commits <1
this country, and to which the present
Administration appears to be equally
committed.
In effect the Harding Administration. ,
i it is understood here, believes there I
should be a coordinated world policy :
toward Russia, and that leaping avidly j
at the bait thrown out by Lenine and j
made more attractive by an important I
change of policy may prevent the i
formulation of such a policy. The I
change in front of Lenine is not doubted, i
but there is niucn doubt as to the rea- i
sons 1'or it. It Ih not believed logical
that Leni?e would have made this I
change in position unless compelled to i
do so.
The evident purpose of the Lenine
Government to secure political recogni
tion by means of trade arrangements
Is also demonstrated In news coming
from London and Stockholm.
While the American oollcy remains j
t:i,<leu>rmin?a, it is understood, the de- j
t i.--ion to move slowly does not neces- j
sarily mean refusal to talk with envoys i
of the Soviet Government. Whether J
they will be received or not still is an ?
open question.
l or the most part Senators feel that
tiie sincerity of the apparent change of,
heart in the leaders of the Soviet Gov- 1
eminent must bo demonstrated by their
works. As Senator Moses <N. H.) put
it. "They must show works meet for re
pentance before we do anything."
Senator Watson (Ind.) ^ind Senator
t emerene (Ohio), the latter a Demo
crat ie member or the Foreign Relations
Committee, stated that the resumption of
Russian trade relations "should depend
on the facts presented."
"I would be glad to see trade open be
tween this country and Russia," Senator
Watson said, "and believe it would be for
the benefit of both countries. But first
I want to learn the terms on which this
will be done. I favor an investigation
and discission of the matter. I would
not favor acceptance of the Ruwsian
proposition until after full inquiry."
Comments from other Senators, includ
ing Colt (R. I.), Swanson (Va.) and
Capper (Kan.), were of a similar char
acter.
J. H. RUBIN DISTRUSTS
LENINE'S CONVERSION
Says Red Chiefs Insisted Van
derlip Was *Vanderbilt
Jacob H. Rubin of Milwaukee, here
tofore widely known as an ardent So
cialist, spoke laot evening in the Town
Hall on "Russia from Within." Air.
Rubin testified recently before the House
and Senate Committees on Foreign Af
fairs regarding Russian trade conditions.
Upon *hat theme he spoke frankly last
; night.
He said he was utterly distrustful of
| the sincerity of the alleged renuncia
tions of former polities which Lenlne
professes to have espoused, adding: "If
T^enlne is sincere in his reformation let
j him come out like a man and say to
j the world, 'We have been wrong; we
i have ruined Russia by falst theories,
but we are done." Why does he not. If
ho is sincere, come out boldly and say:
! We'll lectori to its proper owners the
millions we have stolen n the name
i of a Soviet State?'
Mr. Rubin ridiculed t':>- Washington
i B Vanderlri concession , which were
granted whil<> he was still !n th? con
fidence of the Soviet chiefs In Moscow.
Those chiefs, he said firmly believed
Vanderlip to bo a Vanderbilt "I tried
to explain o them," said the lecturer,
"that this n.m was no Vanderbilt and
not even .Yank Vanderlip, with his
great New York banking connections,
but another Vanderlip. But they in
sisted that they merely mispronounced
the name, perhaps, and that the man
they were de-allng with was Mr. Vander
bilt. They billed him over Russia as
Vanderbilt. What they wanted was
Rood commerel ii propaganda In America,
and Washington Vanderlip has been for
them the greatest advance agent any
three ring show ever had."
