The United States has presented
a claim to the allies who are about
to divide the first reparation money
paid by Germany by the terms of
tha treaty. According to this claim
the United States asks a prior pay
ment by Germany of her expense for
maintaining the troops on the Rhine.
The claim calls for over two hundred
millions of dollars). It is not denied
that Germany owes the U. S. the
money but the claim at this time up
sets the agreement made by the Al
lies for the distribution of the funds
among them. By some an attempt
is made to set the U. S. claim aside
because she refused to ratify the'
Tra-aty of Versailles and made a sep
arate treaty. The United States did
not ak any reward for her part In
the war but she seems disposed to
iniaist on just debts being paid.
The annual celebration of St. Pat
rick's day was an affair of more than
usual significance this year In Ire
land. The new tri-olor flag of the
free state was in evidence in the
n'ties and in some of the exercises
the Gaelic language was used for
programs and songs. Large proces
sions occurred in some of the cities
but there was comparatively little
disturbance. Resistance to the Act
of Agreement seems to be growing
less altho the supporters of De Va
lera and the Independent Ireland are
organizing and conducting a cam
paign of speaking and education. In
the meantime the art has passed the
Commons in England and is now be
fore the House of Lords. Its recep
tion here is less cordial and the
Lords show a desire to be considered
a part of the government They
could not defeat the measure, how
ever, if they desired, but they could
delay it. -
The Indian problem seems to
more troublesome to England rather
than less. The resignation of the
Secretary for Ireland has threatened
the life of the whole cabinet. The
Secretary was highly regarded in
India and was on good terms with
the Viceroy. It becomes anna rent
: Mohammedan population of In-

native leaders have even proposed
