Special Dispatch to tn? nbw-to*k hbkai.d.
Atlantic Crrr, May 12. ? President
Harding in a speech to-night before
a gathering of the women Republican
clubs of New Jersey came out with an
earnest indorsement of Senator Frellnghuysen,
who is a candidate in the
New Jersey primaries.
The President's declaration came as
a surprise, since he had so far made it
a point to avoid any participation in
primary campaigns. It was during a
party talk to the women that Mr. Harding.
speaking of the support he had
received from the New Jersey Senators,
hesitated and then plunged into
n wholehearted indorsement.
The President made another speech
later in the evening to the New Jersey
Bankers' Association, telling their convention
that American bankers would
hive to play the greatest part in getting
the world back to normal.
Prafaea the Old Parties.
To the women the President declared
for party government and took a fling
at blocs. He besought the women to
stand staunchly for the old parties, and
if necessary to make the party over
rather than to go into group or sex
organization. The party, the President
said, perhaps promised more than
It had delivered, but that a great deal
had been accomplished in domestic
relations and world understanding.
The speech was a complete surprise.
The President, asked to greet the
' women from every section of the stage,
got started on a speech purely of
greeting, but rousing to the problems
In Washington, particularly of party
ftnd administration support in Congress,
checked himself, and then decided
to take the plunge.
Address of the President.
In his address tile President said:
'There are times I wish tor a little
iwhllc I were not President of the United
iStutes. I love the boys down in front,
'but they never let me forget I must be
''President all the time. There are times
when I would like to come among you
as a fellow partisan and talk politics,
but yet perhaps that is not appropriate.
"This is the first opportunity I have
bad to speak to an assemblage of
women since you came into your full
inheritance of civic rights In partici
pating In Federal elections throughout
the United States. I am glad you came
Into your own. and I know you will
think I am sincere when I tell you I
like very well the way you participated
1u 1920. I am genuinely glad that
women have come to piay their full part
In American politics. We need you In
the United States of America, and I am
part'cularl) glad to come to a meeting
like this because I believe with all my
heart that women can play their part
fill y and best only when they play It
In connection with recognized political
course I have a preference as to

say With every sincerity to any woman
of America, if you cannot subscribe to
tho enunciated principles and policies
of one party, If you do not find In that
, party outstanding views which reprei
sent that which you believe to be right,
then go Into that party and make It
believe what you think to be right.
Against Personal Government.
"I do not believe In personal government.
Ours is a popular government
through the agency of political parties,
and T say It to you first because It Is
my first opportunity, but I am going
to say It again and again, because T believe
It to be best for our republic,

Meteoric Engineer Gets Three
Months Over Motel's Unpaid
$107 Bill.

1 Author of West, Side Freight j
I Plan a Jekyll-Hyde of j
Finance and Fraud.
Having gone through several for-1
tunes in a somewhat romantic career'
as the promoter of various engineering
I enterprises here and abroad. Dillon C.
: Willoughby, 54, one-time millionaire
and self styled friend of the Duke of
Manchester, began yesterday a three
months term in the workhouse.
He was sentenced by Justices Moss,
I O'Keefe and Herman in the Special
Sessions for having defrauded the Hotel
TourainA last October of $107.56?
' an amount that would have been al- j
most negligible in the days of his affluence.
In contrast to the days when
he was an ardent yachtsman and en-1
tertained many prominent friends.
WlllouRhby admitted his inability to
pay his hotel bill and expressed his;
thanks to the Justices for not sending j
him to the penitentiary for a longer'
Several times Wllloughby has been ar- ,
rested In this city?once for contempt in ;
connection with a dressmaker's bill. His'
i career as an engineer haa been marked
bv frequent troubles with authorities In
various cities. Another time, when he j
was leaving for Europe, he was stopped ,
at the pier by a telegram from the Chief :
of Police of Des Moines, who asked that [
he be held in connection with a land j
promotion scheme in Iowa.
William B. Allls, probation officer, re- !
ported that Wiiloughby also is wanted j
in Brookiine. Mass., on a charge of mis- |
appropriating # ivv anu mat i* ?uu?uvi .
of worthless checks have been passed
recently in various cities.
AVI Hough by Is remembered by engineers
in this city principally as the
author of one of the most comprehensive
plans ever submitted for the improvement
of the West Side. Some features
of this report, which was made
! to the Public Service Commission in
1913, have been Incorporated In the
plan of the Port Authority.
William R. Willcox. who was chairman
of the Public Service Commission
at the time, said he remembered Wllloughby
quite well and described him
as a "bright and entertaining talker."
Since then he has not seen hijn, but he
recalled the freight terminal plan as
one of "the best I had ever seen." It
provided for an expenditure of $85,000,000
and was never adopted.
Wllloughby In the old days always 1
talked In large figures. He Is said to i
j have made his greatest scoop Just bei
t'ore Charles T. Yerkes, Chicago traction !
' man, went to London to build the tubes. |
| Wllloughby, so the story goes, heard i
| of the plans for the construction of the
; tunnels and acquired options on property
I that was required by the city and later
sold the sites at an enormous profit.
The romantic quality*of his achievements
was not lost on the court. Justice
O'Keefe having remarked after a perusal
of the probation officer's report: "Wllloughby,
you seem to have a capacity
for large things. This report reads'
like a magazine article." The report
"He has a vision for big things, and
It seems to be agreed that as an industrial
engineer he has a vision and1

Civil Disputes to Be Lifted
From Congested and
Tardy Tribunals.
Experts to Decide Disputes!
on Behalf of. Arbitration
Lawyers and Merchants Join
to Provide Substitute for
Wasteful Suits.
Arbitration of every kind of civil
dispute except divorce cases is to be
undertaken at once by a unique tribunal
organized yesterday by Judges, <
lawyers and merchants at a luncheon
at the Lawyers Club.
The Arbitration Society of America, i
as it is called, will aim first to cut I
legal red tape and delays and court
congestion. It will provide fair and
speedy decisions on an economical ;
oasis. it win oe a icgui uui nun- i
technical oourt for litigants who agree
to abide by its decisions.
Work to Be Self-Snpport ln?.
The society Is Incorporated under the
membership law. which provides that
none of its officials or governors can
receive payment for their services. The
necessary expenses until it is self-supporting
will come from donations of
prominent men.
Headquarters for arbitration have
been established at 115 Broadway. Ultimately
the founders plan to have the
society housed In a single independent ,
building. In the meantime floors in the .
new Bar Building in Forty-second street
may be obtained.
The society is operating under a law
passed by the Legislature In 1920, which
gives a legal status to arbitration and
invests the arbitrator with the power of ]
subpoenaing witnesses and rendering a '
decision which Is binding and cannot be j
apjiealed unless the defeated litigant :s.n :
show fraud and corruption or an obvious
abuse of power.
One of the aims of the society will I
be to have State Legislatures pass uniform
arbitration laws which will conform
to the laws in New York and, with
American Bar Association ts to take up
this question at its annua! convention In
San Francisco In August. There alao
has been prepared a draft of a bill to
be presented in Congress extending: the
right of arbitration to Admiralty cases, ,
which now can only be tried In the Fed- ,
oral courts.
Praised Highly by Joilgra.
Judge Julian W. Mack of the tTnlted
States Circuit Court, Justice Charles L. 1
Guy of the Supreme Court, Judge Ed- 1
win It. Garvin of the Federal Court and
others spoke in unstinted praise of the
efforts of the society, declaring, in ef- ,
feet, that it would be of the greatest (
benefit to the courts to have some cooperative
agency which would absorb
a great deal of the litigation now choking
the calendars.
The founders believe that If public 1
response Is forthcoming the volume of
litigation will be reduced fully 75
per cent. The society already has a ,
list of men In various trades and pro- i
arbitrators In cases arising In their own
lines. The names of some of these are
to be announced In a few days.
At yesterday's meeting Emerson Mo.
Mlllln. president of the American
Eight and Traction Company, was
elected president of the society;
Prof. Samuel MoCune Lindsay of
Columbia University and president
of the New York Academy of Political
Science, and former Magistrate
Moses H. Grossman, vice-presidents.
The treasurer Is Jutes S. Bache, the
executive secretary J. W. Slaght and i
secretary J. Noble Braden. ]
Has Broad Purposes.
The purposes of the society were i
stated as: 1
1. To conduct an International
campaign of education In promotion
of the general cause of arbitration in i
all disputes and differences. <
2. To organise and operate In New
York city and In other cities of thla 1
country tribunals of arbitration for 1
the speedy. Inexpensive and Just de- '
termlgatlonal of all disputes and controversies.
3. To move for a uniform arbltra- ]

and for the Insertion of an arbltra- I

Locibvii.le, Ky., May 12.?All the
trials for the Kentucky Derby are over

thoroughbreds named to start In America's

Downs to-morrow are hopeful. If not
confident, their horses will be returned

The event, which has been run annually
since 1875, attracted the nomination
of ninety-two three-year-old
colts and Allies, but only eleven of
them survived the preliminary tests of
speed and courage and stamina to be
entered overnight, and it is likely that
at least two of these will be withdrawn
before post time to-morrow.

by the Stillman lawyers, went

went to sleep. 1 am Just dead for you.
I am Just sick of the rich, lonely, rotten

to come to you to-day and be comforted.
I want to be comforted. I want to be

A frigid "No" was sent by the
French Government to-day to Mr.
Lloyd George's suggestion last night
to Louis Barthou for a mixed commission
of experts to continue negotiations
with the Russians and thus
save something out of the wreckage
of the Genoa conference.
France will not participate In any
further negotiations with the Russians
in Genoa, direct or Indirect, In
the face of Russia's reply, and Is
keeping her delegation there solely to
give formal approval to the commission's
resolutions on economic questions.
According to the French correspondents,
the final Russian answer
was dictated by a message from
Lenine to the effect "do not yield, but
push the offensive." To this, the answer
of Premier Poincare to the
French delegation to-day was, In so
many words: "No further bargaining
with Communism."
Vindication for France,
Between Moscow and Paris there appears
no middle ground for Mr. Idoyd
George in Ma effort to prevent the total
collapse of his plan to ca~ry on this
Pan-European conference. The Soviet
reply is considered here as complete
vindication of Franco's original thesis
of the uselessness of any discussion with
the Russians so long as they uphold the
communistic principle and do not support
the right of foreign private property.
Although rejecting the idea of the
j oornmlsston continuing negotiations with
' the nusslans, the French Government In
1 in favor of a commission of experts rep!
resenting tne Allies and the border
States, but not including Russia and
Germany, which would continue to examine
the Russian problem. But acceptance
of Mr. Rloyd George's suggestion
to continue the discussion with the
Russians or to include them on such a
commission would mean. Poincare believes.
a triumph for Soviet diplomacy,
as the basis for such a discussion would
be the Soviet reply of yesterday.
The Russian reply Is considered Impertinent
by the French, particularly In
its refusal to abstain from propaganda
directed at the subversion of the existing
Governments, and is likely to preclude
any further chance for France
acting In concert with Great Britain or
Italy to hold any direct negotiations
with the Russians.
The French press, except the radical
organs, Is demanding that the Genoa
conference be wound up Immediately
and that France refuse to pull Mr.
LJoyd George's political chestnuts out
of the fire by espousing his commission
plan. The talk of non-aggression eventuating
from Genoa Is ridiculed as hav- I

fir.voA, May 12.?Mr. Lloyd George
made a valiant effort to-day to pirlr
up the fragments of his Genoa program,
which was shattered yesterday
by the Russian reply. He advanced
a plan for an eastern European truce
based on the existing frontiers, and
the allied experts set to work again
in an attempt to bring the Russians
around to some kind of reasonableness.
The suggestion of a mixed
commission to study what could be
done in meeting Russia's requirements
Is advocated by the British and
The British Prime Minister's plan
was advanced just when all the other
delegates, save the Italian, were preparing
to write the conference's obituary.
That obituary was intended
to take form in a general agreement
among the Genoa participants that
none should have further dealings
with the Russians and that no separate
agreements should be arranged.
Mr. Lloyd George forestalled the
move, and with ardent Italian support
there is evidence that he will succeed
in keeping the conference going along
these lines for another fortnight.
Xob-AmkmUb Plan Off.
It is not expected, even if a truce
io signed, that it will prevent the
amiable settlement, seriatim, of some
of the disputed territories, and those
settlements mayagaln lead to separate
agreements with Russia. The non
aggression pact is now admitted to
be Impossible of attainment here even
by Mr. Lloyd George, Its proponent.
And any kind of a broad agreement
with Russia seems very distant. The
communists still are all powerful in
Moscow, as shown by the orders sent
to the delegation here.
The French are now reported to be
willing to aid Mr. Lloyd George In
wresting such credit as is possible
from the salvage process, so long as
| they are sure it is no longer possible
! to conclude an agreement with Russia
along the lines of the allied memoIrandum.
To this end Louis Barthou
I is said to have been given more or

Mr. Lloyd George plans that a truce
?not the non-aggression pact?should
be used to keep Europe from a flareup
until the Bolshevlki come to their
senses. He is sure the Russians' need
[of outside aid will induce a more fa[
vorable consideration of the allied
forms if the Soviet emissaries can be
[shorn of propaganda.
The possibility of the conclusion of
a separate peace between England ar.il <
Russia is not entirely out of prospect.
