Conference Opens Fifth
Week With Four Power
Treaty Out of Way and
Acceptance of Naval
Plan Assured
WASHINGTON. Dec. 11. With the
wr-powpr treaty in final form and
n agreement on naval ratio regarded
practically assured, the arms con
ference poes into its fifth week -with
its principals confident they can fin
ish their major duties here by Janu
ary. Problem of the Far East and de
tails of the naval reduction program.
including the question of Pacific
Inland fortifications and naval bases,
now become the subjects of primary
ronwaerauon. The Far Eastern die
cushions are to be pressed forward at
naity meeting of the committee of
the whole while the naval situation is
clearing up through communication
with the foreign capitals and while
w.e separate negotiations over Shan
tung and Tap are verging toward
decision.
Although there are Indications that
Japan is about ready to accept the
American 6-5-J naval ratio, it is not
' considered unlikely that she may re
train from committing herself de
finitely until there is a' clearer un
tferstanding about future fortifiea
tions on the Pacific. There has been
a, general indication that the powers
are .rilling to assent to an arrange
ment by which all present defenses in
the Pacific would be retained and
none added, but the question is yet
t" be made the subject of formal ex
changes.
Further instructions from Tokio
were received today by the Japanese.
Their nature was not revealed, but
there were evidences that the Jap
anese were preparing to canvass the
situation relative to Pacific bases be
fore goiny further with the Inaval
r,?tk discussions. - The two subjects
hare been long regarded by Japan as
Inseparable and her desire to dispose
of both together, is not regarded as a
serious barrier ' 3 a ratio agreement.
The negotiations on China, although
proceeding separately also are re
ceiving the careful attention-of the
Japanese while the naval question is
In abeyance and there have been
come hints that they would prefer to
ee a decision in that quarter also
before they make their .-.cceptance
f the 5-S-3 final and binding.
It is the general expectation that
the result of the Far Eastern dis
cussions will be a united declaration
pf policy by tl j nine nations era
bodving the "four points" of Elihu
Root and making auch specific ap
plication of them as may be found
Dossible. Such a declaration, a part
of which was given official sanction
by the nine nations yesterday, it was
expected would finally take the form
of a "gentleman's understanding."
Seme plenipotentiaries, however,
want to write it Into a treaty, and
decision on that point is to be
reached. 1
Afterwards a similar declaration

dome to the Philippines "as a re

Emilio Aguinaldo, who. after the
war with Spain, led the insurrec

i POLICY
by our constitution, is the- only ra
tional and just method capable of
causing the earth to render the larg
est possible production.
'If President Obregon reposes suf
ficient confidence in me to appoint
me secretary, I thing that the system
of transferring the land to such
towns and the request for allotment
and legal right to it should be con
tinued, but only on a purely constir
tutional basis, without repeating the
error . of deceiving ourselves by
thinking that this alone constitutes
a solution of the agrarian problem.
"Solution of agrarian problem i
hot and should not be the object
of political propaganda, but we must
emphasize the fact that such solution
is not based on the transfer of lands
to the towns, but on the parcelling
of large tracts in accordance with
the constitution."
General Estrada's declaration has
caused much comment, especially
among foreign land owners. Many
observers, who had predicted a sharp
modification of the government's
agrarian policy, assert that General
Estrada's statement is In a sense in
spired and that he doubtless will be
designated to carry out the new pro
gram. The national agrarian com
mission as constituted under General
Villareal is virtually disbanded and
it is said a new commission will be
named. Under this commission ex
propriation of lands was carried out
extensively and the Mexican foreign
office has received many protests, in
cluding American protests.
Senor Villareal's extreme views
have been the subject of much news
paper comment. El Universal was
so outspoken about Villareal that
several days ago a street altercation
between him and Editcr Valavicinl
was narrowly averted.
El Demokrata asserts it has semi
official information that General
Amado Aguirre. secretary of com
munications and public works, will
be named minister of agriculture.

London Daily News Says
Sinn Fein Leader Will
Not Fight Treaty If Con
vinced Ireland Is Against
His Stand
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
LONDON, Dec 11. The Daily
News says it learns that if
Eamonn de Valera is convinced
Ireland is against hi stand on
the peace treaty he will resume
his professorship in Maynooth
college and not lead the opposi
tion in the Irish parliament.
LONDON, Dec. 11. In the absence
of any new move and awaiting im
portant developments of the week,
the press and public are engaged in
estimating the chances for and
against the new Irish treaty. Those
best informed see no reason to modify
their view that the treaty will be
accepted by the Irish people, but are
inclined to take a less sanguine view
of its chances in Wednesday's Dall
Eireann meeting.
It is believed Eamonn de Valera
and his supporters will be able to
put up a stiff fight. The brunt of
the defense of the treaty is likely to
fall on Michael Collins. Present in
dications favor a narrow majority
for the treaty and probable reference
to a plebiscite of the Irish people.
In the English parliament, ratifi
cation is considered quite safe.
Premier Lloyd George is expected
to make a powerful plea for the
treaty in the house of commons Wed
nesday. It is believed that the treaty
may be ratified and the session closed
by the end of the week.
Sir James Craig, Ulster premier.
who has been conferring with the
premier, returned to Belfast tonight.
Respecting reports that Ulster is
demanding some financial conces
sions on lines similar to the privi
leges Southern Ireland will get under
the treaty, Sir Robert Stevenson
Home, chancellor of the excheauer 1
in a speech at New Castle, expressed '
the conviction that no responsible I
Ulster statesman would think of !
claiming a lower rate -ot taxation for I
Ulster than operated in iMew Castle i
or Glasgow.
In some quarters importance Is at
tached to Lord Carson's (formerly
Sir Edward Carson) strong opposi
tion to the treaty.
The Ulster premier, on leaving to
night, declined to say anything about
the settlement.
"There is reason to believe," says
a dispatch to the London Times from
Dublin, "that important members or
the Belfast business community have
been in communication with the Sinn
Fein leaders. It is assumed this has
been with the object of learning how
far the south would go in the matter
of safeguards. .
The dispatch adds:
"Reports from reliable agents say
there Is striking unanimity in favor
of the treaty. It is widely believed
throughout the south that De Valera
has sacrificed his career."

DIVIDES ITSELF

Republican A. P. Leased Wire
WASHINGTON, Dec. 11. While
the foreshadowed acceptance by Ja
pan of the 5 5 3 naval ratio will
leave much to be decided, it does not
follow, in the opinion of American
conference officials, that the confer
ence will have to pass on all that
must be done.
The remaining work on naval mat
ters, it is saia, naturally divides it
self into two classes. They are de
cisions involving policy and those
merely dealing with details under
policies approved.
The conference must act on all pol
icy questions. In this group lie the
franco-Italian naval ratio determi
nation: the British desire to reduce
submarine tonnage; the suggested
modification of the 10-vear naval
holiday plan to permit some building
as necessary for protection of ship
building knowledge and skill and
final determination of fleet ratios in
airplane carriers.
In the other group, it is expected
wm oe founa . sucn questions as
agreement as to the methods of
scrapping ships slated for destruc
tion; ways-and means to control con
version or merchant cratt into war
vessels in war time; rules of war-
fare as applying to new agencies;
specific agreement as to fleet ratios
in other auxiliary ships besides sub
marines and airplane carriers.
It is held the conference would
well leave at least some of these
points to expert discussion and final
settlement through ordinary diplo
matic channels.
A particular point in the latter
class is the method to be followed in
scrapping capital ships.
It has been suggested that three
of the six American battle cruisers
could be made over into safe, fast
passenger liners. The three ships
under consideration are completed to
the water line. There, naval experts
figure, it would be possible to con
tinue construction to produce a pas
senger vessel.
The same thing is said to apply
"to battleships. There Is a possibility
that those not too far advanced in
construction could be changed into
intermediate freight and passenger
service.
There are various non-combatant
naval uses to which new or old capi
tal ships might be put.

The couple were found in a locked
room about 11 o'clock this morning,
apparently about one hour after the
shooting occurred. Mrs. Blann lay
dead on a bed, a bullet through her
forehead. The man lay unconscieus
on the floor in a pool of blood.
Mrs. Blann was employed as
Chambermaid at the hotel. Seeking
Mrs. Blann, the proprietor found the

after he had shot and wounded two
brothers in the ranks of the pickets,
was taken from a hospital here to
night and lynched.
Thirty men called at the city and
countv hospital, where Rouse had

gro. Hospital attaches refused at
first but finally submitted when told
by the leader that their victim would
be taken by force if necessary.
Rouse made a desperate effort to
fight two members of the party dele
gated to find him before he was put
in an automobile and nurnea away.
Twenty minutes later his body wa
found dangling from a tree by Chief
of Police Harry Hamilton. He wa
dressed only in his nightshirt, which
was torn and bloody, and his body
was riddled with bullets.
Rouse was hanged to the same tree
from which Tom Vickery. who shot
and killed a policeman, was lynched
last December a year ago.
The mob which entered the hospital
tonight was orderly, but determined,
and brooked no resistance.

Jurors Fail to Agree After
18-Hour Session Notor
ious Mail Bandit To Be
Brought To Trial Again
Tomorrow
Unable to agree after deliberating I
more than 18 hours, the Jury in the
case of Roy G. Gardner, mail bandit
charged with the robbery of an Ari
zona Eastern mail car at Maricopa
on the morning of Nov. 3, was dis
charged by Judge William H. Saw
telle in the United States district
court yesterday at 12:30 o'clock and
ordered to report again to the court
at 9:30 o'clock tomorrow morning.
In discharging the Jury Judge Saw-
telle said tha any verdict reached
after 18 hours' deliberation would not
be an unanimous verdict in the real
meaning of the term, and -that fur
ther deliberation, since a verdict had
not been reached in this case, would
be useless. He then charged the
members of the Jury to give out no
intimation of what the votes in the
Jury room had been or what the dif
ferences in opinion were.
Immediately after the Jury had
been discharged Thomas A. Flynn,
United States district attorney, an
nounced that Gardner will be brought
to trial tomorrow morning, but that
he had not decided whether to try
him on the Maricopa charge again or
to bring up the charge against him
for the attempted robbery of a Santa
Fe mail car in Phoenix on Nov. is
and his alleged assault upon Herman
F. Inderlied, mail clerk in charge ol
the car.
In the Maricopa case Gardner was
charged with having robbed a mail
car at Maricopa of three registered
mail pouches. Yhen arraigned on
this charge and that of having at
tempted to rob another mail car in
Phoenix, the bandit pleaded not gun
ty and asked that an examination of
his alleged insanity on the day or tne
robbery, Nov. 3. be made. With this
plea as the basis for bis defense, bis
trial started last Monday morning,
and continued for six days, the case
going to the Jury Saturday evening.
The action attracted hundreds of
spectators every day and proved one
of the most interesting cases ever
tried in the federal court here, due
to the notoriety of the defendant.
Gardner was defended by Carl A.
Davis, who will be in charge of what
ever other cases are tried against
him here.
