Going to Paris.
Return of Entente's Ambas

Be Real Reason.
Reparations Question Likely
to Drift Until May 1, When

I.ondon. March 19. j
Dr. Slimmer. German Ambassador,
arrived from Berlin to-day to resume
his duties as previous to the London
conference. He says that Ambassador
William Mayer von Kaufbeuren is re
1'irnlng to Paris. Ho explains that the
unexpected return is due to the fact
that the British and French Ambas
sadors have returned to Berlin, which
was a signal to Germany likewise to
renew diplomatic relations.
At the Embassy it was said this
evening that the situation is the same
as though the London conference
never had been held, as far as rela
tions are concerned. There is the
question of the sanctions cwi one side
and the reparations on the other, but
the differences have caused a com
plete deadlock economically aad Ger
many is awaiting the next move,
which, she says, is decidedly up to the
Allies. In the meantime the countries
will carry on as though fresh differ
ences had never arisen.
The problems rising: out of the Lon
don conference are entirely up in the
air, or, as (he Germans My, the same
s if the London conference had been
wiped out. except that the Allies are
occupying a little more German terri
tory. They say that the solution of the
problem is no nearer, and that further j
negotiations are necessary to clarify
Ilnrtlloii Allnurd to Drift.
A British Foreign Otflne official told
t!>e correspondent for The Nsw York
Hkhxi.d to-day that he expected the
question would be allowed to drift until
May 1, the date set when the Germans
n.ust disarm completely and present a
programme for meeting the terms of the
treaty. He said that the reparations
matter lies with the council of Ambas
sadors, as the Premiers feel that the
Vmbassadors arc capable of handling
arid mapping out plans regarding cus
toms and sanctions.
It is also now expected that the coun
cil of Ambassadors, with telegraphic ad
vices from their heme governments, can
?ettle the Slieslan result. The reports
cf the interallied commission on the
plebiscite have not yet * rnved, to-day's
official advices from Kuttowitz inform
ing the Foreign Office that there are still
acme minor corrections to be made.
According to the present plans, there
will be eo conference at Stresa. Rome
or any other place until rround May 1,
when It will be necessary for the Allies
to make a final decision as to what to
do with Germany if she is still recalci
trant. There ts a steady application of
the present sanctions, and the Allies still
believe that Germany stewing in that
Juice Is worse off than the Allies. If
she violates the treaty further she will
t>e further punished, but the Allies be
lieve she will see the light before May 1.
Waiting (or Allies to Act.
German officials say that Dr. Sthamer
did not bring back anything suggestive
of new German proposals on reparations
; nd reiterate that Berlin Is waiting for
the Allies to show their hand flrst.
Dr. Sthamer asserts the uprisings In
Germany, while serious, are nothing
which the military cannot handle safely.
He Insists that the Communist fever
came from Russia and ts not any
"?grandstand" play for the benefit of the
Allies, and declares that th* Govern
ment agents have proof that the Reds
In Russia are giving material encourage
ment by financing the Saxony disturbers
and that communications have been car
ried on between them.
He point* out that it is obvious that
the German Reds have gone too far In
dynamiting bridges, destroying property
and trying to separate themselves from
Berlin to warrant the suspicion here and

"I wish to state most emphatically in

citizens and their imported goods, and
also the necessary guarantees for the
observation of the laws and customs of

"I feel sure that trade relations soon
will be renewed, but the acceptance of

Vienna, March 29.?Former Emperor
Charles of Austria-Hungary was in i
Vienna Sunday and met a group of
Monarchists here, according to most re
liable authority. The ex-Emperor went
from here to Budapest, but left that city
within a few hours at the request of the |
Hungarian Government. In view of the
political conditions both in Austriu and
Hungary, even the most enthusiastic
Monarchists declare they consider the
moment unripe for a coup.
So far as appears, the movements of
ex-Emperor Charles were not known to
the Governbent or to the foreign diplo
mats hero until after his departure from
Vienna. Th>3 former Emperor dined Sun
day night in the home of a certain aris
tocrat, in company with other Monarch
ists. What developed at the conference
is not known as yet.
According to the Politieche Korre
spomlrns, Charles arrived Saturday
evening at Steln&manger, disguised, and
stayed with the local clergy. Count
Teleky, the Hungarian Premier, was Im
mediately summoned and urged Charles 1
"not to carry ou' Ms intentions/' On
Sunday morning Charles motored to
Budapest Count Toleky followed in j
another car, arriving there two hours J
after the former monarch. Admiral j
Worthy, the Hungarian Regent, was
taken completely by surprise and ad

Ijate in the afternoon, the newspaper \
adds. Charles, with Count Teleky, left j
Budapest, but -the former Emperor de-,

During the conversation in Budapest, j
says the newspaper, there was some
question of France assenting to the re
turn of Charles to the throne, but the
French representative intimated that
the Allies were opposed to this. Count
Andrasay, former Austro-Hungarian

It became known to-day that the
State Department within a short time
will take Into consideration the case of
Donald J. O'Callaghan, Lord Mayor of
Cork, who came to the United States as
a stowaway and whose status here has
been under question for some time.
It is understood the department be
lieves there is no question of political
asylum in the case of O'Callaghan, since
political asylum means a pursuit of the
person seeking it by some Government.
The attitude of the department, as it
.s understood, is that the O'Callaghan
case Involved merely noncompliance |
.vith the passjx>rt regulations of this |
Government. The Inference drawn is ;
that the department will hold these j
