WASHINGTON', Nov. 25 Although
Ihe arms conference Is taking no 6teps
toward limitation of armies. It was
aid authoritatively tonight that the
question of land armament was in
"reserve" and might come up for a
general expression of policy when the
naval and F a Eastern problems are
out of the way.
Any attempt to secure a hard and
fast agreement on land estimates. It
was pointed out, would involve many
handicaps which do not apply to the
limitation of naval power. France,
with the largest army in the world,
aJready has declared her unwilling
ness to weaken materially her po
tation undei present circumstances.
Poland, which has nearly as many
men under arms as France, Is now
represented In the conference, and
neither Is Russia, with her vast pos
sibilities of man power, nor the
smaller states of Central and Souths
era Kurope, whose national policies
are linked up with the maintenance
of large armies. 1
To open up the discussion to de
tailed discussion, It would, therefore,
he considered necessary, , by the
American delegates at least, to en
large greatly the scope of the con
ference. It Is realised too that the
discussions might lead the confer
ence far afield Into the realm of in
tricate international relationships now
agitating Europe In the aftermath of
the World- wj
In that connection, Iord Curzon's
warning to France, pronounced In a
public address yesterday, was read
eagerly but without comment. All
throughout the negotiations here
there has been an effort to keep pres
ent considerations of European pol
icy as much In the background as
possible and the view understood to
be taken generally Is that precise
agreement In regard to land arma.
ir.ents.ls not essential to the success
ct the conference.
At any rate, the clearly defined
purpose of the conference at the pres
ent stage Is to leave possible contro
versies over land armament in the
pigeon hole and go ahead with the
subjects which show greater promise
of accomplishment.

Brooklyn Recluse
Leaves Fortune To
Girl She Wronged
Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ
NEW YORK, Nov. 25 A pencilled
document, purporting to be at once
the will and the confession of Mrs.
Margaret Easten, wealthy recluse
who died in squalor in Brooklyn rec
ently, reached the Brooklyn surra
Kate's court today In an envelope ad
dressed by an anonymous sender.
The document asked that all Mrs.
Easton's money and bank deposits,
said to total more than $250,000 be
civen to my husbands daughter
Josephine Johnson, who lives some
where in Ohio, residence unknown."
"I was at outs always with Jose
x phln." the document continues, "and
my deceased husband willed her his
money in 1911, and I tore up the will
and burned it up and I am sorry for
all I did and said, but now I confess
it is all wrong, and there must be no
fussing over this will, for what I
have done I have done."

French Bluebeard
Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ
VERSAILLES, Nov. 25. The
prosecution today concluded Its case
against Henri Landru and the de
fense began bringing forward wit
nesses in an attempt to disprove the
contention of the state that the
"Bluebeard of Gambais" Is guilty of
the commission of eleven murders
and the cremation of the bodies of
his victims.
The last state witness was Dr. Sau
vez, a prominent dentist, who offered
expert testimony that 29 of the 47
teeth, alleged to have been found
among refuse in Landru's villa, were
"indisputably human." He declared
the teeth had been burned while still
in the jaws and that the skulls be

Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ
WALSENBURG, Colo., Nov. 23.
Announcement today by officials of
the Oakdale mine at Oakdale, near
here, that one section of the mine
will be closed because of lack of
orders, was characterized by John
McLennan, district president of the
United Mine Workers, as 'just an
effort on the part of the company
to get rid of some of the union men
Miey don't want."
Twenty-one men are employed in
the affected section, according to
Superintendent McLeary of the mine.
Work of clearing the section up in
preparation for a suspension of oper
ations began this morning.
The list of men affected Includes
several brought to military headquar
ters for examination in connection
with the shooting fray of a week ago
at Oakview, it was said.
W. O. Moore, a check weighman,
who was ordered off the Colorado
Fuel and Iron company's property of
the Ideal mine, was brought today
to military headquarters for ques
tioning regarding statements he is al
leged to have made regarding the
conduct of the state rangers at a
camp. Adjutant General Hamrock
directed an investigation at the camp
be made.
The Oakdale mine is owned by the
Oakdale Coal company and is not af
fected by the miners' strike.
That the wives of the striking min
ers at the Colorado Fuel and Iron
company's Ideal mine near here laid
down a barrage of bread against men
who tried to enter the mine to report
for work, the first day of the strike,
was revealed here today when Col
onel Hamrock, state adjutant general,
In command of the military, conduct
ed an investigation of a complaint
made by union officials that the wife
of a miner had been struck by a
ranger on patrol duty at the mine.
It was developed at the hearing that
the accused ranger, J. A. Case, had
struck the woman lightly with a stick
but that he had done so only ! after
she had refused to obey his order to
move on. The ranger said the alter
cation with the woman arose when
the crowd of miners' wives had used
up all their bread ammunition and
had begun throwing stones.
The first case of eviction of a strik
ing miner from a company house was
brought to the attention of the au
thorities today when the family of
Gabriel Gonzales moved their furni
ture from the camp at Ideal to Wal
senburg. Inquiry established the fact,
it was announced at Colonel Ham
rock's headquarters, that the wife of
Gonzales was one of the women who
participated in the miniature riot and
bread throwing incident at Ideal mine
the first day of the strike. The mine
superintendent stated that the Gon
zales family had been asked to move
because both Gonzales and his wife
always had been a source of trouble.
China Governors
Make Concessions
In Tariff Control
Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ
WASHINGTON, Nov. 25. Assur
ance that the Chinese local governors
are ready to abandon the "Likin" tax
if China is given tariff autonomy
was contained in a statement issued
tonight by the Chinese delegation.
For many years the "Likin." an in
ternational tax imposed on goods
shipped -across the boundary lines of
the provinces and collected indepen
dently of the central government has
constituted a serious barrier to trade
development because it made tariff
tolls almost prohibitive on goods
which foreign commercial Interests
have tried to send into China.
The delegation's statement follows:
'Information has been received to
the effect that in connection with the
question of tariff autonomy in China,
the provincial military and civil gov
ernments of China has agreed to
abolish the Likin (internal duties),
at the same time, according to the
petitions of the United Association of
Chambers of Commerce in China.
The business men in China are deter
mined to secure the abolition of the
Likin as soon as China is at liberty
to increase her tariff rates. The
ministry of finance has been making
due preparations in order to carry
it into effect."

DUBLIN," Nov. 25. The Irish Bul
letin, reverting to the text of the al
leged secret circular issued from di
visional commissioners of the Royal
Irish constabulary at Belfast and
dealing with the formation of unau
thorized loyalist defense forces into
regular military units on a territorial
basis, says that Sir James Craig, the
Irish office and Dublin Castle dis
avow its authority, but that the Brit
ish government remains silent.
"There seems only one reason for
this silence on the deplorable incident,
which can not pass without having
its effect on the present situation."
says the Bulletin. "The Irish people
can come only to the conclusion that
the British government is the guilty
party, in which case not a moment's
reliance can be placed upon British
good faith in the present negotiations.
"The only possible alternative con
clusion is that the government has
been betrayed by one of its chief of
ficials, who besmirched its honor; in
which case it is impossible to under
stand way the government has not
declared its abhorrence of the policy
outlined in the circular and dismissed

tated itself by proof that it took no

SPRINGFIELD. 111., Nov. 25 Wov
ernor Small's line of attack against
indictments charging him with em
bezzlement of public funds and con
spiracy to defraud the state, was laid
before State's Attorney C. F. Morti
mer of Sangamon county tonight.
The specifications, delivered to Mr.
Mortimer by counsel for the govern
or, point out the nature of arguments
to be. made at Waukegan, lec. 5, in
support of motions to quash the in
dictments. The attack on the indictments by
the defense charged:
"First: That the indictments, on
their face, charge the governor with
no crime or offense against the state.
"Second: That they do not allege
that the governor ever received any
monev belonging to the state.
"Third: That the grand Jury In
returning the indicements failed an
explanation and review of evidence
which the defense claims "was abso
lutely in violation of the constitution
and statutes. Intended only to create
an unfair and unwarranted prejudice
against the governor and renders the
indictments illegal and void."

Arms Conference
Agrees To Abolish
Extra China Rights
( Continued From I'age 1)
Hul Wang, one of the delegates, to
day sought to. soften those expres
sions and lalu emphasis on a state
ment that the Ctlnese had no clash
with the British. At the earae time
spokesmen for the British delegates
discussing tne Chinese question ex
pressed views somewhat in modifi
cation of what was understood to be
their position at previous discussions.
An indication that the crux of the
negotiations on the Far East may be
reached before the committee discus
sions go much further developed to
night when Dr. Wellington Koo of
the Chinese delegation, announced
that he proposed to bring the ques
tion of Shantung and the "twenty
one demands" treaty before the com
mittee "at the first opportunity."
Feeling in China, declared Dr.
Koo. is so intense on these subjects
that the delegation feels it must ask
for the complete return of Shantung
and abrogation of the treaty of 1913
even thouch the request leads to ser
ious opposition from Japan. He indi
cated that he would wait until the
principles involving these questions
were reached in natural order of
committee procedure, adding that he
was unable to tell how soon this op
portunity might arise.
Today's discussion of extra terri
torial rights was based or. a state
ment presented by Chung Hui Wang,
chief Justice of China, detailing con
ditions and askinc that action "be
taken toward "improving and event
ually abolishing" the present 'system.
Later discussions among the dele
gates was said to have revealed a
general belief that the Chinese Judi
cial code was sound, and that the
only reason for a continuance of the
foreign courts was the doubt as to
the efficiency of Chinese administra
tion. In the considerations of the Chinese
postal administration the Chinese
representatives were said to have
argued that the postal service was
one of the most efficient of native
functions. The question of foreign
postoffices was said to be of princi
pal interest to Japan which was re
ported to have more than 100 postal
stations throughout China. The only
American postal station is at Shang
hai. It was Indicated that China would
also urge control over telegraph and
radio communications as a necessary
attribute of domestic administration,
and a study of that subject was at a
meeting late today of the four Ameri
can delegates. Maps and other infor
mation dealing with the radio facili
ties in the Pacific of this and other
nations were furnished the American
delegates by the navy department.
The Japanese quarters, it was said
tonight, th-- Japan sympathized with
China's request that foreign postof
fices b& abolished, but held that the
conditions be studied before the ac
tual desire can be put into effect
