CONFERENCE BLOCKED
AWAITING REPLIES
Germans Seeking Compromised
Without Sacrificing Pact.
Oknoa, April 19' (Associated Press).?
The German delegates and experts have:
not yet been able to find a formula
whereby to compromise with the En
tente Powers without sacrificing the
Russo-German treaty, although they
were in session al a very la'.e hour to
night. Efforts are being made to have
the conference formulate a Russian pol
hw n which ihe Rosso-German treaty
can be absorbed, thus giving it thu
stamp of conference approval and re
moving the aa.use of hard feeling
The plain language of Premier Moyd
George to. the German statesmen to-day
over the treaty incident, whloh at one
lime threatened to disrupt tbe economic
conference, wan believed to have cleared
the political afmo.-tphere, but as neither
the German r?ply fo the Allies nor the
Russian reply regarding acceptance of
the conditions for the restoration of
Russia was forthcoming the situation is
still considered critical.
Some of the neutraln deecrlbed the
Germans as embarrassed how to And a
way out" of the difficulty. Meantime the
work of the conference is blocked. The
neutral States have offieiaJly insisted
that the agenda of the conference he
discussed in the commissions and not in
private conversations among the chief
delegates. To this the leaders * rejoin
that preliminary meetings are advisable
in order to expedite the labors of the
conference.
M'. Bart lion of the French delegation,
to-night confirmed the report that
Premier Lloyd George had adopted a
strong attitude at, to^dav's meeting
with the German Foreign Minister. Dr.
Rathenau. M. Barthou. who Is Kept
closely informed as to what' Mr. Lloyd
George is doing, said there- was no
room for equivocation on the part of
Germany, there wae no middle course.
If the Germane insisted on maintain
ing the treaty, the ^rencli could not
rfesi -with them on any or- the com
niiasiotw concerning Russia.
"The most compln^ accord exists be
tween France and ^ngJand on the
question Involved." he added. "I per
sonally find the greatest friendliness
end support on the part of the British
Premier."
The opinion was expressed in French
circles to-night that the Germans are
anxious to find a vrav of setBement
which will keep them active members)
of the conference.
i
f.loyd fieorare'a 1 lllnmtum.
According to an Knglish .ipokwrnan.
the conversation at Prime Minister
TJoyd George's villa concluded by Mr.
Lloyd George saying:
"There are only two alternatives for
the Ormansc Rlther to- withdraw the
RuHo>Qvmm treaty or to withdraw
themaelTea from the commission dis
cussing Russian affair;). I do not wish
elthei* to humiliate Germany or to
inflict a penalty upon her. hut the
conference cannot allow the German
delegation to continue to participate
In discussion on Russia unless she
makes amends for this deplorable In
c'denf "
Tn the course of the conversation Dr
?VCirth and Or. Ra'.henau wni? excuses
and presented diffuse ?xplanations, re
peating what is slrendy known ahout
the reason* whfr-h indix <>d them to sign
the treaty with Russia.
Here Mr TJoyd George answered It
was not a question of excuses and ex- !
nlanatlons. but he needed to know ex- '
ncttv what the Germans Intend to do.
Or. Wirth replied that the situation
was vnry grave. He regretted coropll- '
cation* had arlsfn. but li? would do his
best to find a satisfactory solution.
The British Prime Minister Insisted
upon knsiwing soon the Cerman deelslon.
Or. Wirth and Dr Rathenau left,

Although the ?pniHiirnfp of G?J
manv's conclusion of a treaty with
Russia is doubted by the more con
servative newspapers, the entire Ger
man oress backs the Government and
advises asainst repudiation of the
treaty, even though participation in |
the Political Subcommission of the
Genoa conference hangs In the bal- ,
atice.
Conservative papers call the allied .
note hypocritical, arrogan t and the
act of a school teacher. However, the
German delegation must explain to
the Gcrmw people why they took the
step or were maneuvered into a posi
tion which provoked tfie disapproval
ol t he Allies.
In general, the press asserts Ger
many's right to conclude the treaty,
and Hugo Stinnes's Allf/emeine Zei
tvng urges the people to stand cour
ageously behind the Government. The
('omm uniat Red Finn adopts the same
lone, calling upon workers to agitate
against recoil by the Government from
n step already taken.
All Partial J-nbttaut.
AH parties w< loomed the treaty witn j
f5ov)et Russia enthusiastically, as evi
dence of a return to world affairs with- I
out the Allies' permission. Tn official 1
circles It is hinted that the move was
prompted by the Allien' efforts to ex

Itv in negotiations at Genoa. by th'? j
limitation of subjects for dlscuswiun ard

The Germane and Russians had
made an open secret of %heir inaention 1
to hold a> demonstration in common at
Genoa, should; ihey find themselves Iso- j

The press approves the treaty its a
settlement of old war time economic
differences, ami t.he establishment of s
basis/for the return to ordinary diplo

the two countries. Some papers find j
nhat the urea^y gives Germany no par

The y.ettuHtt attempts to
r
prove that the new treaty is not fo ihe
disadvantage of Russia. It fears the
French will agitate atsumst Germany on
the treaty issue. but hopes It will hasten
the conclusion of similar treaties be
tween oHt#r nationj and Russia.
German business, watching the barom
eter of the falllrtg mark, doubt the time
liness of the treaty. A leading Ger
man manufacturer tolcl The New York
HriRAi.u correspondent that the publica
tion of the treaty was characteristic of
Garnran diplomatic tactlessness. For il
lusory material gains, he said. Germany
sacrifices the good will already won at
the Genoa conference through her re

Important, for last year's Rueso-Ger
man trade agreement gave Germany
practically all the business facilities that
the new treaty -provides. He added that
the treaty did not increase the Rus
sians' buying power in Germany; and
tlia* while the political agreement would
facilitate trade relations, it would not
develop them.
German official cities hold that the
new treaty constitutes no new depar
ture. Tt is pouJtcd out that the Brest
Utovsk treaty (in 1918 gave the Sov et
Government bolCi de facto and de 'jure
recognition Germany does not propose
to set a precedent relative to -the re- j
nunciation of reparation for property

?that clause in the> treaty becomes opera

ticle 116 of the Versailles treaty was
not violated, because it merely gave tne
Russian* the opportunity to settle their
claim* 41 reel > w tk.Germany, and thuse

The Germans say that Germany was
Isolated In that the Allies excluded ne:
from their dealings with Russia. Ger
many's independent action, therefore,
was prompted, they say. by concern for
her Interests.

Seen as a Violation of Ver*

Paris. April 19 < Associated Press).?
The treaty between Germany and Rus
sia probably will be formally placed be
fore the Reparations Commission next
Friday, when the commission will kegiv.
arv Inquiry to determine, whether the
agreement conflict* with tne Treaty of
Versailles.
In commission circles it was pointed
out that the commission probably would
decide that the Rapallo pact was In
direct violation of Article 248 of the
Versailles Treaty. This article in effect
gives the Allies first* Hen on all assets
of the German Empire.
Premier Poincare- also ? has asked the
allied Governments to Join with France
in submitting the treaty to the Ambas
?adors Council because It is liable to
infringe on articles of u political nature
of the Versailles treaty, and It is the
1 unction of the An'hassadors Council
under this treaty to place on record
officially breaches of the Versailles
pact In general.
The Premier has forwarded fresh in
structions to M. Harthou at Genoa.
The* French Government is not opposed
to resuming deliberations with the Rus
sian delegation, but on condition that
the latter accepts tlin Cannes provi
sions. which Involve, notably,- full rec
ognition of the Russian pre-war debt,
respect for private property and con
cessions and the rinht to indemnities,
atl of which principles are contradicted
in spirit and letter by the Rapallo
treaty.
Acknowledging the receipt of the In
structions. M. Harthou declared himself
m full agreement w'th M. Pi?lncare and

to admit of no concession as regards

BRITISH COIiENT
REVEALS DIVISION
The 'Times.' Among Others,
Wants Closer Cooperation
to Offset the Move.
SEE THREAT TO PEACE
?Westminster Gaiette* Says
Such Treaty Was Sure
to Come.
POINTS TO HUGHES STAND
Tells Allies to Recover Front
Chagrin and Get to Wofk
at Genoa.
Sprciat Cabl? to Tup New Yoik Hbrai.u
| Copi/rtcil.t, 19tt, by Tub New Yokk Hbsald
New York Herald Bureau. I l
I-ondou. April IV. 1 .
A section of the British press to-day
; dees more than ever an urgent need
for closer cooperation of the Allies at
j Genoa if the peace of Europe is to be
| secured. The Dnilu Chronicle praises
I Prime Minister Lloyd George as "the
mainspring of the British policy.",and
I says that #he British are not only
1 anxious to work hand in hand with
j the French, but that the present Gov
ernment desires it more strongly than
any Government likely to feplace It
might be expected to desire it. The
paper says the policy "seeks to obtain
for the Old World what a simitar
j policy on the part of the United States
1 secured in the Pacific."
The Times says the trea'.y has re*
j vested "past all possibility >( further
| concealment the danger aga'n>i which
fYance and the true friends France
have raised their voices in warning
; since the period when the war was not
decided." It points out that 'he Ger
mans and the Russians ? al"Vj:ys have
? tried, even in the <4a>"s of tae Kaiser,
to control Central Europe and Asia ; and
tries to show at length how. through
out history, the treaty Is only -another
step in the policy which dereat 'n the
war interrupted.
"It means that a new griming of
Powers is immlaent, If It has not al
ready been accomplished." the Times
adds. "Germany and Ru-jla are
leagued together against the <1 *1*
natories of the Versailles frei'y. and
this league Is not directed tomaid the
furtherance of world peace. The Allies
must, stand together more l.njy and
more closely then they ha\v done of
late, and they must drop all cKckertngs
for lender thing*. They must rect gnise
the alliance fo.r what It is?the result of
the fixed determination of the Germans
and the Bolsheviklto continue tne covert
struggle, .against .them until tee dav
comes when pretense of concealment
will bo pefessary no more."
The Dailll News urges a change In
tactics on the part of the Allies, for
"the conference so far has not merely i
failed to lay the evil spirits of exar er- j
bated raised by the w.tr.
hut It has hardened the lines of division
and Intensified the bitterness of rival
vanities and warring ambitions. ...
sjt Is clear, day repeated experiment, that j
the peace of Europe cannot be secured j
on the lines which have been pursued ,
from Versailles to Genoa."
The vs says the League of Nations
system never has been given a fair trial,
end adds that even that might fall, but
that the method of the Supreme Coun
cil cannot succeed.
The Westminster Oatette blames the
Allies rattier than the Germans and the
Russians, saying that while the (in
ference survived, the treaty episode
clearly has been too much for the
Allies' sense of humor. It Insists that
the Germans were Invited only because
it was to the interests of the Allies to
invite them, and that It was no less
than obvious that two stricken nations ,
should try to come together.
It criticises the Allies along the lines i
of.Secretary Hughes's refusal to attend. '
on behalf of the ITntted States, because j
vital matters, such as reparations and ,
disarmament, were not In the agenda.
The paper adds:
"It Is to be hoped that the Allies will
speedily recover from their chagrin and
begin to set about to work in a spirit
of greater realism than they have dis
played to date. If the Allies are going
to get their share of trade." it declares,
"their agents at Genoa will have to
come to earth."
