GERMANS TELL
OF PLANS FOR
DISARMAMENT
Entente Nations to Quit Nego
tiations Unless Immediate
Assurance Is Given.
FEHRENBACH ASKS TIME
SPA, Belgium, July 7.—Germany's
disarmament proposals were laid be
fore the allied statesmen this afternoon.
Before the third formal session of the
conference opened at S :30 o'clock Dr.
▼•n Simona, the German foreign secre
tary, said he was hopeful that the dis
cussions on German disarmament wonld
eventually lead to an agreement.
T'nleßs the German delegates gave un
equivocal assurances that disarmament,
in accordance with the treaty terms, will
begin immediately, the allies will discon
tinue negotiations, it was learned from a
reliable sources today, after both sides
held informal conferences preliminary to
reconvening of the conference.
Although Chancellor Fehrenbach de
clared the situation was serious as a re
sult of the virtual ultimatum of the al
lies. he was optimistic.
"I believe the allies will make the
necessary concessions in order that Ger
many.! internal order can * be main
tained," he said. 0
Dr. Gessler. German minister of de
fense. who has arrived, declared he was
happy to have the opportunity or dis
cussing disarmament, but he hinted he
would resign unless the allies allowed
Germany more favorable terms.
It was reported that Gessler intended
to Insist upon a stronger German army,
but he refilled to admit such Intention.
The disarmament ultimatum was made
by Premier Lloyd George, spokesman
for the allies, following Tuesday’s four
hour conference.
He told the Germans to prodnea a
definite disarmament scheme today.
Fehrenbach made a dramatic appeal for
delay.
Minister of Finance Simons nsked for
time In which to obtain employment for
demobilized troops.
GERMAN MINISTER
IN' DRAMATIC APPEAL.
“I’m an old^Juan.” said Fehreubach,
in asking
for honesty. I have promised the relchs
tag to enforce the treaty and I’ve prom
ised you the same.
“I will stand before a higher power
—my God—ls I don't do my best to
fulfill these promises."
Tears trickled down the chancellor's
eheeks as he spoke.
In the opening /lebate Llovd-George
declared the entente was disappointed
with Germany's failure to fulfill the
treaty terms.
He said what the allies wanted was
hopes and promises for the future aud
not excuses for the past. .
He said Germany was entitled to 100,-
000 men and rifles and 2,000 machine
guns. Instead, the British pre"-ler_con
tinued, Germany has 200,000 men. fiO.OOO
machine guns, 12,000 guns and millions
of rifles.
Dr. Gessler opening the German argu
ments. declared the reichswehr had been
reduced to less than 200.000. He blamed
•trikes and the economic situation for
non-fulfillment of the treaty terms
Lloyd-George replied that Germany
did not realize the gap that existed be
tween the treaty and its execution, ne
said there were two dangers in Germany
—the right and left groups, and added,
that it was the allied intention to re
move both.
INTEND TO AVOID
RISKING TROIBLE.
"We don't mean to be harsh or cruel,
but we intend to avoid risking trouble
either with German militarists or Ger
man bolsheviks,’’ the British premier
said.
“If Germany was sincere, disarmament
would have been accomplished long ago.
“If the Germans produce definite
plans for destruction of war material,
better relations will follow.
“Otherwise, the entente assumes that
Germany either does not intend, or Is
• powerless to carry out her obligations.”
Fehrenbach cited the extraordinary
conditions in Germany during the past
year, and declared the present armysjvas
necessary as a radical and organized
band of looters in many part* of the
country were well supplied with arms.
He said the proposal made at the
Bologna conference, that Germany should
have a police force of 150.000 men, one
tbird of whom are to be armed, was
impossible.
Lloyd George held private discussions
with the Polish representatives regard
ing Poland’s share of the German in
demnity.
, It was believed Belgium’s indemnity
protest had been sidetracked for the Im
mediate present.
It was understood the allied reply to
Turkey regarding revision of the treaty
would be a fiat refusal.
SPA, Belgium, July 7.—The Constan
tinople government must sign the Turk
ish peace treaty within ten days after
its presentation, it was decided at a
preliminary conference of allied pre
miers here today. Turkey's plea for re
vision was refused. The communique is
sued following the premier's meeting,
said:
“The allied premiers considered the
reply to the Turkish peace treaty today.
It was decided that It would be impos
sible to make any important alterations
In the document.
“A counter reply was ordered drafted,
directing Turkey to sign the treaty
within ten days after presentation.”
THINKS ALLIES WILL
MAKE CONCESSIONS
SPA Belgium, July 7. —After an all
night session of the German delegates
in n country villa on the outskirts of
Spa, Dr. von Simons, the German for
eign minister, announced that a tenta
tive proposal on disarmament had been
drawn up for presentation to the allies
this afternoon.
• I believe that the allies will make con
cessions In the matter of disarmament,’*’
said Herr Fehrenbach, German chancel
lor and head of the German delegation.
Opinion was expressed in allied cir
cles that n conciliatory agreement prob
ably would be reached and that the
conference would not be broken off to
night as the result of a deadlock.
It is understood that the allies now
are ready to waive July 10 as the date
by which the German army must be de
creased to 100.000 men.
The Germans, professing alarm at tho
Russian victories over th Toles. have
been Insisting upon an army of 200,000
men.
Dnrinz' the nll-nieht discussions of the
German envoy*, reparations were taken
up as well as the question of disarma
ment.
Dr. von Simons intimated that a ten
tative Indemnity proposal had been for
mulated to be presented to the allies
after the conference has finished with
disarmament.
Gen. Malcolm of the allied military
mission, eat with the Germans part of
the time and made suggestions as to the
best means for Germany to disarm In
accordance with the treaty terms.
Herr von Gessler, German minister of
defense, and Gen. von Seeckt. com
mander of the German goverpment
forces, were present, also.
When the meeting broke up Dr. von
Simons said the Germans would meet
again immediately after lunch to put the
finishing touches on their disarmament
propi sal and that it would be read to
the allies when the third session of the
conference gets under way between 7
and S o’clock.

der that they may be tided over to the
next taxpaying period.
The taxes collected on the basis of
horizontal increases were declared to be
absolutely necessary tp the financial wel
fare of Indianapolis.
GOODRICH ARGUMENTS
IN COMPLETE COLLAPSE.
The decision marks the complete col
lapse of the argumsnts of Goodrich and
his tax board tbat they would decrease
tax levies to such an extent that the
horizontal increases would be balanced.
The supreme court decision has the ef
fect of taking one of the weights from
the balance and bringing the whole tax
structure built by the present adminis
tration crashing about their heads.
They are in the predicament now or
having low tax rates, which were so fre
quently promised, without the corre
sponding high valuations.
The decision is looked upon as meaning
a complete failure of the Goodrich-buyt
centralization plan of taxation.
It means that the legislature will have
a knotty problem to untangle which will
necessitate a review of a large part of
the entire tax question which caused an
upheaval in the last general session of
the assembly.

EXPERT CALLS
FOR NEW STATE
LAW ON INSANE
Recommends Statute Compell
ing Public Hospitals to
Accept Patients.
INDIANA METHODS HIT
Recommending tbat the Indiana state
legislature immediately pass a law pro
hibiting the placing of any insane patient
in a Jail or a' nshouse, but compelling
the state hospitals for the insane to ac
cept them following an expert diagnosis
at a state psychopathic hospital to deter
mine causes of the insanity, Dr. H, H.
Wright, an expert of New York City on
management of public institutions, ap
peared today before a joint conference
of (he Marion county council, the county
commissioners and the state board of
charities.
Dr. Wright recently completed an ex
pert survey of all county Institutions and
appeared to explain his numerous recom
mendations a* to needed reform in treat
ing insane patients in Indlnna.
Dr. Wright recommended at the con
ference the following:
That putients at Julietta, the county
hospital, be transferred to the state Vtos
pitals for the Insane.
That laws be passed at once by the
staje legislature prohibiting Jaiis or
almshouses of accepting insane patients.
INCREASED CAPACITY
RECOMMENDED.
That needed appropriations be made
to increase the capacity of the state In
sane hospitijs.
That a p/ychopathic service he estab
lished at tne Robert Long hospital in
Indianapolis at the expense of the state
where all suspected insane could bo stud
ied by experts before being committed
to the state inrane hospitals.
That farm colonies be established ulti
mately by tne state where insane pa
tients could be put to work in the sun
shine tilling the soil, but the expert in
sisted that this he done under the super
vision of the parent institution.
The expert pointed out tbat a law
should be passed in Indiana giving the
state the entire supervision, care and
treatemnt over the insane.
He deplored the present practice of
committing Insane patients to Jails and
almshouses and branded the system as
“unsatisfactory.”
He Indicated that the state might cre
ate an annex to the Central Hospital for
the Insane in Indianapolis as a tempo
rary mean* of obtaining extra room.
Dr. Wright declared he has decided
that a psychopathic service is needed In
Indiana and this would provide an ex
pert examination before any patient le
gally was adjudged Insane.
I'nder the present system a justice of
i the peace, with no expert qualification*,
sits at insanity hearings.
It is understood an effort will be
made to get the suggested reforms in
the treatment of insane at the chming
special session of the legislature.
In discussing the conditions at the
Marlon county Jail, Dr. Wright pointed
out that Improvements should be made
at once to make the Jail a safe place in
which to keep desperate prisoners.
Tie discussed at length the defects in
the proposed transfer of Jail prisoners
from the county Jatl to the workhouse and
! pointed out the need of immediate re
pairs at the Jail.
; Dr. Wrtght recommended, that the Jail
I kitchen be transferred from the top floor
| to the basement and new sanitary equlp-
I ment as well as utensil* be installed; that
! the space so obtained be made Into men's
dormitories; that the women prisoners be
transferred to the abandoned (powerhouse
next to the Jail; that a high wall be
I erected to the rear of the Jail so as to
: provide a recreational space for prison
| ers as well ns to prevent any outside com
munication with the prisoners.
PLEADS FOR NEW
JAIL EQUIPMENT.
The expert insisted that a wall sep
arating the cell rooms on the south side
be torn down and that modern doors,
j locks and other equipment be added at
once to insure the safe keeping of all
prisoners.
Dr. Wright declared that under pres
ent conditions It ia not fair to the
jailer to compel him to risk his life In
entering the cell lurlosures.
He intimated that a sliding door oper
ated on the outside should be installed
to open automatically or close oil the
i cells.
Such a system would require at least
two Jailers on duty all the time.
I>r. Wright stated that although the
! Jail was built more than thirty yeurs ago
it was buil( on modern Ideas, but it now
needed certain repairs.
He pointed out also that prtaoners
should not be permitted to have anything
In their possession which could produce
sufficient heat to be used in tempering
i the steel bars so they could be sawed.
Dr. Wright contended that many prob
lems in the Marion county Jail manage
ment would be eliminated If the women
prisoners were removed from tho Ja 1
and the institution given over to the
men.
Dr. Wright resumed his remarks to
I the authorities at 2 o’clock this aftrr
| noon and was schedulecd to discuss the
poor farm, Bunnysldo and other county
problems.
