HOPEFUL VIEW IN LONDON Believed Conference Will Be Held, but At Later Date Than Sept. 20. By EARLE C. ,REEVES. Imtaeratteal News servic. LONDON, Sept. 17.-The Irish peace situation took a favorable turn last night. Eamon de Valera rushed an answer to Premier Lloyd George's latest note, saying Sinn Fein had accepted the premier's in vitation to a peace conference upon the condition which the British cab inet originally outlined, which made ne saanties of Irish freedom.

Text of Pemlers Note. LONDON, Sept. 17.-The text of Premier Lloyd George's communica tion to the Irish parliament follows: "It would be idle to say that a con ference in which we had met your representatives as delegates from an independent, sovereign state would be a conference without prejudice. To receive your delegates upon this status would constitute official recog nition of Ireland's severance from the King's domain. It would entitle you, If you saw fit to do so. to make a treaty with the King's government, and It would equally entitle you to make no treaty at all, but on the con I trary, to break off the conference. 'At the same time, it would * * * entitle you, if you insisted upon an other appeal to force, to claim from foreign powers the rights of lawful heiligerents against the king.

"These would be the consequences of receiving your delegates as the representatIves of an independent state.

FORTUNE HIDDEN, IS HINT Avalanche of Bills for Lavish Purchases of Finery Makes Big Hole in Estate. The long-predicted legal battle of twenty-six-year-old Mrs. George M. Oyster, jr., for a share of the de ceased Washington dairyman's es tate greater than the $25,000 allotted her by a codicil to her husband's will, began yesterday with an attack on the validity of the codicil, written four days before Oyster's death. Practically a Renunciation. With thin move Mrs. Oyster practi cally renounces the provisions of the will, in favor of her claim for dower rights of one-half the personal estate and one-third of the proceeds from the real estate. Should the caveat filed yesterday be granted, her position will be much as though phe had filed her renunriation. In the wake of the request that the court set aside the decree of June 24 last, by which the will and codicil were admitted to probate, detailed data was brought to light yesterday Indicating the young widow had long been preparing for her major effort to recover riches she apparently con sidered to be slipping from her. Very Fussy About Inventory. During the inventory of her de ceased husband's personal property. contained in his luxuriously furnished npartnkent at Wardman Park Hotel. she is said to have conducted the ap pointed assessors through the laby rinth of the wealthy man's personal property. insisting upon the inclusion f insignificant items which might therwise have been omitted by the court's representatives. The inventory list as submitted to the court Is said to have contained de. tailed mention of shoe strings, dis rarded straw hats, and even the gilded frame in which once reposed the boudoir photograph of Mr. Oyster. Creditors Swoop Down. Mrs. Oyster's attempt to boost the value of her husband's estate before filing the attack upon the codicil ap peared seriously handicapped yester day when it was learned that addi tional bills against the estate had been filed by exclusive shops of Washing. ton where Mr. Oyster had waived his Midas wand for her pleasure. On the heels of the extensive bill for jewelry purchased at the time of the wedding here last January. total ing nearly 810,000. has come the bill for lingerie and sables purchased at the shop of Julius Glarfinkle a Co. In one day, according to shop's sales accounts. Mrs. Oyster spent nearly $5,000 for the pretty things of a trousseau even greater In loveli ness than could have been wished by the vainest Cinderella. Eleven beautiful hats, one listed at $235. were included in the pur chases of that single day of spending. Gowns costing as high as $135 and 5213, 'negligees at $5w; hose at $7.50. two sables at $436 each, handker 'hlefs at 87.00. fans at $33.50. sweat. eri at 86N.50, gloves at 812.50--are items which indicate the manner of the expenditures.

I FEEL sorry for "Fatty" Arbuckle and do not see how any court in the land could convict the fallen idol for murder or for man slaughter. He has suffered enough, in my opinion. How can you punish Ar buckle unless you punish Mrs. Bambina Maude Delmont and the others who were his guests at the St. Francis and who have told their story to District Attorney Brady? I blame booze for the whole thing. Had there been no liquor at that party Virginia Rappe would not have lost her life. But there were in toxicants and I see by the papers that forty quarts of whiskey and other hard liquor was consumed by "Fatty" and his guests. Now his pictures are barred. And while they are banning his pictures they should quit showing Miss Rappe's. . Without a doubt she went to that party of her own free will and accord. From what I gather from the papers, Miss Rappe also went into the bedroom with "Fatty," not because he forced her to go, for it seems that he did not, but because she wanted to go in there with him. The girl died, but I believe her death was caused by an accident and not by Roscoe Arbuckle.

DEFENSE EXPECTED TO TALK Working on Theory That Girl Was Injured After Leaving Comedian's Rooms. By ELLIS I. MARTIN. Iaternational New. evlc.. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17. The cases of the people versus "Fatty" Arbuckle, in which thei funmaker of the films stands charged, first with murder and second with manslaughter in con nection with the death of Virginia Rappe, "beat dressed woman in Ithe movies," tonight had resolved itself into a protracted legal battle. Arbuckle appeared in court with his attorney's today when they asked that hearing of the manslaughter charge be postponed until the mur der charge has been disposed of. The motion was granted, and the next hearing on the manslaughter charge was set for September 26. Arbtuckle sat at a table with his counsel during the brief moment he was in court. He appeared cheerful and took little in. terest in the formal court nroceedings. Defense Likely to Talk. The melodrama of the early stages of the scandal involving choice de. tails of the gay party two weeks ago, have been told and retold. The silence self-imposed by the defense shows signs of beginning to waver in hints being thrown out as to possible plans of defense. On the other hand, the State, aa represented by District At. torney Brady. has begun to close down. No further testimony is to be made public outside of court. From Los Angeles came the Intima tion that Arbuckle's attorneys plan to build up a defense on the theory that the death of Virginia Rappe was purely accidental and that a man D other than Arbuckle was the cause. D The State had nothing to my on that prospect. Mrs. Mae Taube. a hitherto miss ing witness, who attended the fatal he party, today underwent three hours mq and a half of questioning at the hands wi of District Attorney Brady and his ho chief assistant, Isadore Golden. he When it was completed announce ment was made that her statement at was not to be made public. wk Word came this afternoon that the to missing witness in the Arbuckle case, whose testimony has been character- w4 ized as "indeapensable" by District At- in torney Brady, had been located. * Dr. to Arthur Beardulee, first physician to of attend Miss Rlappe, after she became 3,1 ill in Arbuckle's rooms in the St. wi Francis Hotel, and who departed on a Wl hunting trip the day after attending m her, had left Nevada for Bridgeport, de Cal., Brady was informed.
