Hughes' prestige.
Republican leaders who have dis

The Philadelphia Public Ledger, an
independent newspaper, has branded
tho charges made by Linthicum as
"untrue," adding:
"There is no jealousy or friction be

ence field marshal. The president
and we speak by the book, chapter,

that Hughes was a great man when he
put him in the cabinet, and he knows
it now. He approves every move made
by Hughes and the American delega

ultation that America has dona a great

work as one of the team."

with the exception of the Hearst group
of newspapers, has given the Harding
program vigorous support.
Withhold Approval.
It is understood that a number of in
fluential Democrats have withheld
their approval of the policy of the
Democratic; national committee in at
tempting to bring about discord among
the administration leaders over the
arms limitation program. Being prac
tical politicians these men believe it
will be well to keep partisan hands off

MEXICO CITY, Dec. 30 The Mexi-
can Chamber of Deputies was invaded
by armed forces yesterday for the first
,ime in its history when troops were
called in to quell fighting in the gal-!

with the Liberal constitutionalist
party and the Social Democratic bloc.
Whips and canes were used by the
combatants in the struggle, which
arose over efforts to win control of
the permanent commission which is to
act during the recess of congress from
January 1 until next September.
Election of this commission has
been expected for the past fortnight,

Meeting of French Business
Men and Financiers Held in
Paris to Grapple With
Economic Situation.
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Dec. 30. The meeting of
British and French financiers and
business men at the French foreign
office , this afternoon to grapple with
the European economic situation, is
regarded in French circles as one of
the most important experiments since
the first efforts to bring Europe back
to a peace basis.
It is generally believed that if the
conference organizes an international
consortium of bankers, merchants and
manufacturers, it will have a marked
influence on the future of Europe.
Even in French political circles,
where all efforts of British business
men to intervene in European prob
lems have been regarded with SU3-I
picion the impression is gaining that
I after all business heads may be able
to get ahead faster than diplomats.
Reason for Conference
The failure of the allies to place any
portion of the German reparation

of absorbing such paper is said to have
brought about the present conference.

loan, which all financiers agree is
necessary to set on foot the work of
restoring Europe economically, has
been abandoned until it is seen what
the supreme council meeting at Can
nes may workout In connection with
the business men's conference here.
Difference of Opinion.
There still remains a difference of
opinion between London and Paris re
garding the participation of Germany
and Russia in a consortium and in the
international economic conference
which will eventually be held. The
French maintain their attitude of re-
fusing to meet the Bolsheviki official-!

WASHINGTON. Doc. 30 The Amer-
1 ican proposal for the limitation of aux
iliary naval crai't of a maximum of
10,000 tons displacement was under
stood to have been virtually agreed
upon at the morning session today oE
the arms conference naval committee.
All of the powers' delegations ac
cepted the American proposals, except,
the French who while holding formal
approval in abeyance said such ap
proval was expected.'
The delegations from all of the pow
ers, however, were understood to have
given their assent to the additional
provision to the American proposal
that the guns of auxiliary craft be
limited to eight inches.
Albert Sarraut, head of the French
arms conference delegation at the
meeting today of the commitee de
clared in substance that France was
beginning to be regarded with susplc-
ion by the other powers represented
in the Washington meeting and that
this could not go on.
Await Decision
Decision on the American proposal
to outlaw entirely the use of sub-
marines against merchant craft was
awaited today from three of the five
J powers France, Italy and Japan.
1 Formal approval of this proposal
j was given by Great Britain yesterday
during its brief consideration which
followed agreement in principle by a'l
the powers to the first article of the
Root resolutions reaffirming existing
rules of naval warfare and theif strict
application to submarine . operations
against merchant craft.
The proposal to prohibit ?ubmarine
operations against merchant vessels
went over for further committee dis
cussion today with a proposed amend
ment by the British delegates where
by the five powers would agree finally
between themselves to such prohibi
tion without awaiting world assent to
such a proposal. The amendment was
offered after the suggestion had been
accepted by Mr. Root as author of thH
resolutions. p.nd the discussion ended
for the day at that point without nny
expression on the second proposal by
delegates of the other powers.
First Proposal
As adopted in substance by the na
val committee and sent to the sub
committee for final drafting, the first
Root proposal sets out anew the rules
of visit and search belligerent crafi
must observe in operating against
commercial vessels, and couples with
this the declaration that submarine
must be governed by these rules.
The resolution was to be valued,
Secretary Hughes declared during it
discussion, as a reminder to any of
the signatory nations between whom
future differences might arise "that,
the weapons which they possessed
were not, as in the past, to be used
without reference to the laws of God
and man."
Balfour Reserves Passage
Again Arthur J. Balfour, head of the
British delegation to the arms confer
ence, has reserved passage on a steam
er sailing for England, Jan. 14. It was
stated by a British spokesman today,
however, that this was only a tentative
booking and there was no idea that
Mr. Balfour would leave the confer
ence until it had completed its work.
The British military contingent had-
ed by Lieutenant General the Earl of
Cavan, planned to sail from New York
on the Olympic for home.
Elihu Root, of the American arma
ment delegation, was an early visitor
at the White House today and was
closeted with President Harding for
nearly two hours. The regular cab
inet meeting was delayed for a time
by the extended conference which Mr.
Root later asserted dealt chiefly with
the present situation of New England
railroads. CITY TO START 1922
WITH $29,000 CASH
The city will start the new year with
approximately $29,000 in the treasury.
City Controller Bescher said Friday.
This amount is in the general fund.
It is the largest amount that the city
has had on hand at this time for sev
eral years.
Last year the amount carried over
was only $7,000.
In the light plant fund at the pres
ent time receipts for the past month
have brought the fund up to $109,000,
it was announced. However, disburse
ments amounting to approximately
$31,179 and the payroll to be given
out Saturday, which amounts to $5,000,
will cut the amount down considerably.
However .the fund will still show in
the neighborhood of $74,000, Controller
Bescher said.
