lT. S. TITLE TO FOE
SHIPS MENACED
Paris, June 13.?America's title
to interned Germain ships appeal's
today to be somewhat endangered.
GomjpCcat'icns in the shipping
! question, which appeared oasily sol
j vable six weeks ago, are tying ' up
i the final award to America. These
disputes invoice Prance, Italy, Ja
pan, and Bravil.
Italy apparently is providing the
chief obstacle, though without fur
nishing any reason. Signatures of
the British and French were obtain
cd several wctl/s ago to an agree
ment for the ships seized in her
?poit?. Jor'y r.lso announced her
readiness io sign. but when it came
to affixing her signature she always
held oil on seme pretext or another
.without denying the propriety of
' Ame: ica?s position.
France svrnc.l the agreement,
ccntfirgtnt on being allowed to buy
a nun (her of Germian ship.-- interned
in Brasiil. But Brazi'l asked all cash
fov the ships, while France wanted
to pay part cash ar.d part in securi
ties, Japan is withholding her assent
ur.ti ! arrangements arc; ma le for her
to clJain a cei'trrn amount of ton
nage from America, which is expect
ed to be tass'lv arranged. Croat
Piiiani, meanwhile, is standing on
the agreement, despite the protest
of British commercial interests.
Portugal is now presenting clainv
for a part of the German navy as
rt | a 1:.ticn fc>i her naval losses. The
??aural t:rdei stair'ing is th?t Port- .
vial's losses woe limited to a few
mir.t peis. bet hi" claims in
clude liehf. cruisers, destroy., rs and
various othc lr-'jft.
