H AXD SCX-TELEG RAM VIL. XCIL, No. 309 Palladium, Est. 183). Consolidated WitU Sun-Telegram. 1907. RICHMOND, IND., THURSDAY EVENING, DEC. 28, 1922. SINGLE COPY, 3 CENTS RICHMOND FAJLJLADI POLITICIANS CANNOT FIX REPARATIONS Fear to Lose Favor of Voters Rr MARK StLI.IVAW WASHINGTON. D. C. Dec. 28. The opposition to Senator Borah's proposal for an economic conference springs from a variety of points of view. Probably the most reasonable is that which has come to doubt whether the German reparations can ever be fixed by any conference or other tribunal in which the members are publio men or politicians depend ent upon the popular vote in their respective countries. The politicians of all the countries concerned know that the reparations must be fixed, and they all have a fairly accurate Idea of what the amount must ultimately be. But the French politicians during the last four years have built up in the mindo of the people a greatly exaggerated notion of the sum to be taken from Germany. Similarly, the German politicians know quite well what Germany ul timately will have to pay 'at least nine or 10 billions. But while the German politicians know this them selves, they have given the German people the idea that the sum can be reduced to something like five bill ions. Politicians Will Hesitate The result Is that the politicians of those countries will naturally hesitate to enter a conference that may name a sum which will seem to the deluded French voters shockingly small and to the deluded German voters, shock ingly large. Even if the politicians of those countries should enter a confer ence, they might be expected to try to avoid coming to the sort of conclusion which their people at home would re sent. They would be fearful of the effect on their personal political for tunes. The public men of Great Britain probably are in a better position than the politicians of either of the other countries to take part in the fixing of a reasonable and practicable sum and to "get away with it" with their voters. It is quite true that in Great Britain Lloyd George and many of he ether politicians about the time of the Paris conference kept telling their people that Germany would.be made to pay an extravagant sum, a sum great enough to pay, among other things, the pensions" of British, sol diers. However, in Great Britain, there has been a change in government, and Bonar Law can tell the facts about the sum that Germany can actually be expected to pay without incurring so much resentment as Lloyd ueorge would have suffered from. For that matter, there . has been a change in the popular mood of the people of Great Britain and British statesmen nrobablv would have little hesitation ill Standing lor reauciug tut: uiuu reparations to a reasonable and prac- j . f i i ticable sum. Reasons for Doubts It is for these reasons there has been some doubt whether a true ad judication of the German reparations an pv-r he accomplished in a con- ference made up of public men in ac- j tive Dolitical life. Also, it is for this reason that high hopes were enter tained for the project initiated by the business men and chambers of com merce of the several countries to fix the reparations through the joint ac tion of the several national chambers of commerce. Such a decision would have been unofficial, - of conrse, -but if it were given to the world as the joint judg ment of the business men of the sev eral countries it would have educated the peoples of those countries to look upon the question in a new light. After the various chambers of com merce should have named a sum and after the peoples of the various coun tries should have become familiar with this sum. it might then have been possible for the public men and gov ernments of those countries to asree to this sum without endangering their own positions. Beans Are Spilled. UnirpvfT twM'nrn thi nlan fir flu. fixing of the reparations by the cham bers of commerce nad got very tar some one ".spillfd the beans'' by a promature publicity, and that plan is now off. much to the regret o;' many thoughtful persons who believe that it. promised weJl. Those who oppose Senator Borah's plan believe that the German reput ations cannot br fixed at the right sum without first going through some process that will "save the face" of the European governments concern ed. From the American point of view it is also feared that if a conference is called at our request and upon our iniiiative the other countries may con clude that we are over anxious for a settlement, and may seek to make us pay the price by giving concessions in the shape of cancelling the 'debts due to us and otherwise. Wants Open Dealing Senator Borah, on the other hand, believes the best way is to get rid of all these diplomatic processes of try ing to save somebody's face and throw the whole situation into the open. He believes that in an open conference, even if the politicians of France and of Germany should take impossible positions, nevertheless the real facts would be put forth by the 'Americans and British, and perhaps soui others. These facts, coming from such a sounding board as an international conference, would reach the peoples of the world and would provide pre cisely the educational process neces sary to bring these peoples to look with tolerance upon a practicable set tlement of the question.

A pistol that would not fire for a jail guard played an important part last Sunday in the escape of seven prisoners from the Wayne county jail. Reliance on the same faulty weapon was responsible in large measure for the death early today of Joseph Ryan, the convict who wrested it from the guard as he fled the jail. It refused to work when Ryan and three other fugitives were cornered in an apartmnt house last night and a detective fatally shot him and arrested his companions. Ryan, leader in the jail delivery, died shortly after midnight after ad mitting a part in several daring rob beries since his escape. He also cleared deputies at the jail of sus picion in connection with the escape which officials had declared was per mitted by careless officers. Ryan said he was wanted by reformatory au thorities at Mansfield, Ohio. A wooden key found in the pocket of one of the captured men solved the mystery of their escape, the sheriff's office announcing it unlocked a door leading to the main corridor. The men captured with Ryan were Walter Hansen, formerly a clerk in the detective bureau; Donald Smith and Frank Wyrembalski. The sheriffs office announced to day Joseph Zakrzewski, another of the escaped prisoners, had been trap ped and soon would be taken into custody. THIEVES GET S500 WORTH OF JEWELRY AT HANER'S STORE Watches, rings and miscellaneous jewelry, estimated to be valued at $500, were stolen late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning from the Charles H. llaner jewelry store, 810 Main street. The loss is covered by insurance. Discovery of the robbery was made by Harry Chase, jeweler, who opened the store Thursday morn ing. Both doors to the rear of the store were swinging wide open when Mr. Chase entered from the front. He immediately started a general survey of the stock of the store to determine what was missing. Mr. Chase notified the police, who started an investigation at once. Bertha Walterman, employe at the store, was the first to notice that sev eral rings and watches had been taken from the display windows in the front of the store. Miss Walterman stated that she had been working at the store Wednesday night as late as 10:30 o'clock. , The thief or thieves who looted the store were evidently positive in their selec tions of the jewelry, for they picked out only the- choicest articles. Articles Stolen. Among the articles already discov ered to have been taken were two men's watches and two wrist watches, of high value; five diamonds, ranging in value from $30 to $50 dollars; two diamonds valued at $75 and. $100, a jewel box with first class jewelry in ... i i e , l . x ' : . u, uu a, suauu ui i-an. vanuus other articles of more value, which were in the window were not touched by the thieves. One mesh bag, valued at $25; valuable tie pins, rings and soforth were among the articles which were not touched.' A pane of glass had been broken out of the rear door and entrance had been gained by reaching through and lifting the bars, which were securely placed across the door, or by some person small enough to crawl through the panel and open the door. The second door, which admitted to the store from the back room, was evi dently kicked open, inasmuch as It was locked at closing time Wednes day evening. ........

ROBBERS WHO ENTER JOSEPH H. HILL HOME ARE FRIGHTENED AWAY Burglars who entered the home of Joseph H. Hill on the former Abrain Gaar farm on the New Paris pike, Christmas eve, were frightened away before they could obtain anything of value. Mr. and Mrs. Hill were dining with friends in Richmond and it is pre sumed the burglars lurking nearby saw the Hills driv'e away in their auto mobile and then entered the house. Attempts were made to forceentrance at the front door. Finding this too hard the burglars then got in through a cellar window. Mrs. Hayden, who, with her hus band, is employed by the Hills, was in the house at the time and saw the burglars. She hurried to the tele phone and called Mr. Hill. Mr. Hill called the police department, and by the time he could drive to his home he found the police already in the house investigating. The burglars had left immediately upon their discovery by Mrs. Hayden. A few drawers had been disturbed, but nothing had been taken. The police department Thursday de nied having received any report, of the attempted robbery at Mr. Hill's home. NEGRO IS HELD IN CONNECTION WITH KILLING (By Associated Tress) ORANGE, N. J., Dec. 28.

President Harding today informed the senate that action by it on Senator Borah's plan for an economic and disarmament conference was not advisable in view of what the executive branch of the government is already doing "to be helpful." Just what the steps already taken or in contemplation by the administra tion mav be. however, the president did not reveal. He said members of: congress could learn if they would in-. auire in the proper way. but that state department communications on so delicate subject, obviously could not be bulletined from day to day. "If congress really wants to help," he added, "it might well free the hands of the debt funding commission, which under the act, creating it, cannot alter the interest terms of date of payment of the war debt." The reparations question Mr. Harding said, was at the heart of the European situation, but he added that the United States could not dictate the terms of reparations settle ment and that it would be futile to call a reparations conference. Senator Lodge presented the president's letter immediately after the senate convened and the reading of it by a clerk, was listened to attentively by senators on all sides of the chamber. Blocks Senate Action The president acted directly to block senate action after he had con sulted with Secretary Hughes and Senator Lodge had visited the White House and had reported on the prog ress made on the determined fight al ready being waged against the Borah amendment by the administration leaders in the senate. The letter stated that, while the senate "might properly advise" in re gard to international negotiations, its action on the Borah plan might give "false impressions to European pow ers." The administration, the presi dent said, was "trying to be helpful in the European situation, which has been given most thorough and thoughtful consideration for many months." Sen. Borah Smiles. Senator Borah noted on a pad of paper the high spots of the communi cation and . smiled broadly . at the president's declaration that the pro posed amendment would in effect give the impression that the execu tive branch of the government "was not fully alive," to the present world situation and that congress could fa cilitate the work of the debt com mission "by freezing the hands of that body". Senator McNary, Rep. Ore., gained the floor after the letters had been; read and began an address in behali'i of the Borah proposal which he chant-; pioned as a measure likely to aid the! American farmer by restoring Europe and increasing European purchases of American agricultural products.- Aj; an active member of the senate farm bloc. Senator McNary declared his op- position to an American policy of "isolation," although he said he knew his views would arouse what he termed the "international statesmen bloc" of the senate. Deplores U. S. Inaction "I shall never know," said Senator McNary, "whether it was the stub borness of our distinguished Presi dent Wilson, the perversity of the senator from Massachusetts, Mr. Lodge, or the eloquency of the irre concilables which prevented the rati fication of the Versailles treaty, yet I shall always think as a mild reser vationist that much of the unrest and hatred existing at this time would not have occurred had this treaty con taining the covenant of the league of nations, with the Lodge reservations, been ratified." Senator McNary said the Borah amendment would not oblige America to any aggressive or offensive mili tary action or precipitate the nation into any political maelstrom. The views of the president were set forth in a letter to Chairman Lodge of the foreign relations com mittee, sent to the capitol to be pre sented at the opening of the second day of debate on the Borah proposal, which is embodied in an amendment to the annual naval bill. The amendment also calls on the president to cail another arms limi tation conference, but that suggestion Mr. Harding also resisted in view of the position taken by some of the powers at the Washington conference a year ago. BRITAIN THINKS U.S, DEBT TERMS HARSH Ey Associated Press) LONDON, Dec! 28. In all news paper comment on the Baldwin fin ancial mission to the United States hope is expressed that the terms fixed by the American congress for repay ment of the British debt may be modi fied. They are universally regarded as excessivly onerous and in some quarters are described as "such as Great Britain would not dream of try ing to exact from a debtor." The period of redemption is particu larly condemned and Otto H. Kahn's suggestion for a 47 year term is thought far mpre reasonable than the 25 years set by congress. The chief hope here for modifica tion is based upon the suggestion of the American Bankers association who it is hoped may prevail on the Ameri can congress and the people in ret ting better terms. Some of the news- i papers understand itn1: the American funding commission 'ivill not be lim ited by congressiona! stipulations and ! expe'et that discussion will result in j an easier ceal for Great Britain.

EX-MAYOR IS DENIED RIGHT TO GIVE RAIL To Fight Extradition to Last Extreme (By Associated Press) BALTIMORE, Dec. 28 Dr. B. M. McKoin, former mayor of Mer Rouge, La., today lost his fight for immedi ate release on habeas corpus pro ceedings. He was remanded "with out prejudice" to give the Louisiana authorities opportunity to present their case. Dr. McKoin was arrested here Thursday at the request of Gov. Parker, of La,, who accused him of murder in connection with the More house parish kidnapping last August. Three judges of the Baltimore su preme bench, Bitting in supreme court, denied Dr. McKoin the right to bail. A dispatch from Attorney General . Coco of Louisiana -to State's . Attor ney Leach, stated that Dr. McKoin formally has been charged with the murder of Watt and Daniels and Thomas Richards. The despatch ad ded that a deputy sherif was on the way to Baltimore with the necessary papers on the case. . Tt Fight Extradition It is possible that ex-U. S. District Attorney Robert B. Carman, counsel for Dr. McKoin, will renew habeas corpus proceedings after the arrival of the Louisiana officer today. At any rate, it was declared Dr. McKoin will fight extradition to the last legal ex tremities. Attorney Carman questioned the right of detectives to arrest Dr. Mc Koin on. a mere telegram from some body whose identity was not attested in the massacre, but he said that he would not press the point. He urged only release on baiL asserting the ac cused former mayor would be available at any time. warrant Is Issued Shortly after receipt of a telegram from Governor Parker last night, re questing local police officials to hold Dr. McKoin pending arrival of extra dition papers, word was received from Bastrop that a warrant for Dr. McKoin's arrest had been issued by Attorney General Coco of Louisiana. Issuance of the warrant, it is be lieved, will make it unnecessary for authorities to make known their evi dence against Dr. McKoin in order to extradite him, as well as forestalling any attempt to release Dr. McKoin on bail. Many telegrams from friends of Dr. McKoin have been received, offering moral and financial support. Among them are Included some from persons associated with the medical profes sion, as well a3 one from the Central Savings and Trust company of Mer Rouge, offering to deposit in any Bal timore bank funds sufficient to ob tain the release on bail of the ac cused man. Statement Corroborated Telegrams also have been received corroborating Dr. McKoin's statement that he was in Monroe, La, the night of Aug. 24, when the kidnapping and murders were alleged to have taken place. One from Dr. J. B. Vaughan, of Monroe, stated that Dr. McKoin was with him in Monroe from 8 p. m. to 10 p. m. the night of Aug. 24. The kidnappings were supposed to have occurred between 7 p. m. and 10 p. m. ' Dr. C. P.
