By DAVID LAWRENCE. (Special Despatch to The Reformer.) Copyright 1021. WASHINGTON", Aug. 29. There is no concealment here of the disappoiut nient of allied diplomats in the new peace treaty 'signed by the United States and Germany. The allies had been hoping to the last that the United States would stand by her first signature on the Versailles treaty, and thus pre serve the association which began in 1017. The European governments were prepared to agree to any reservations to the Versailles paet which the Ameri can government might have proposed. They wanted America's signature on the treaty of Versailles chiefly for moral ef fect. Of course, diplomats do not discuss American domestic politics for publica tion, but they are quite aware that the factional dispute in the American sen ate furnished the underlying reason for the ma kins of a separate peace with Germany. It was a case of preserving: harmony in the Republican party-or dis appointing the allied governments, and the Harding administration felt that it was more important to appease the do-, mestic situation than to please i.urope.

Y.. Aug. 20. Ver mont is going to send a man from the fish and game commission of that stat into this section to take some beaver alive to be used for propagation purposes in Vermont. There has been a drive under way for several years throughout ermont to get some heaver located in the state, but it has met little success. There has been as their candidate, . drastic protection-on the animals in Ver- of domestic polities. President Harding Hughes to abandon "engaging under the Versailles, there are many who predict, that safeguarded her rights stnndnoint. and that while the allies are disposed at this time to interpose no ob jection to the American course of ac tion, the chances are that the indirect method by which the United States has made pence with Germany will furnish plentv of legal controversy in future years'. The allies, of course, owe the United States a good deal of money. and( are not likely in the immediate future to engage in ' serious controversy over legal questions, but it is admitted that the European governments may some diiv question the validity of those rights which the United States has endeavored to acquire by a separate treaty vim ( lermanv. The line of thought of those who con tend that the new treaty does not safe guard America's rights is that in the preamble America formally announced to the world that the treaty of Versailles signed bv the United States was not rat-j ilied and is. therefore, inapplicable to the United States. In later sections of: the Hughes-Knox treaty. America speci- ticallv claims rights and privileges of the Versailles treaty. The question is asked , how the United States can in one brealh declare that a certain contract is null! and void, and in the next breath insist that certain parts of the contract arej valid. . , In answer to this query the I nited, KtMti.vi while never ratifying the Ver-I sailles treaty has never notified the other governments of the world of an in tention to repudiate that document. even though objection was made to cer tain parts of it. such as the league cov enant. In other words, the treaty of Versailles unratified is just as live a document as the Hughes-Knox treaty, which has just been signed but is also unratified. Indeed, it appears that the American government probably will take refuge on occasion behind the fact that the Wilson signature on the Versailles paet. From the allies viewpoint, this ap received certain rights and privileges from Germany under the Versailles pact which cannot be lost, simply because the American senate failed to ramy certain obligations imposed in that treaty. America Liberal Enough. Ttrleflv. the American attitude is that. having participated in, the war with no desire to acquire territory or material gain, the United States had a perfect right to insist upon all the benefits and priveleges which may be conferred upon other nowers. while, at the same unit le needed of uneiit' recommendations as to measures that can properly oe iaen in co-ordinated speeding up of employ ment bv industries and public bodies during the next winter and. in addi tion. a broad study of economic nieas tires desirable to ameliorate the tinem ohivment situation and give impulse to the recovery of business and commerce to normal." Many constructive surges-j tion have been made to the detxirt ment -by employers, eovernors of states ami bv citv otlicials." I "While the business situation is the number at the conference as small as possible, Mr. Hoover said, so that the work mav be done with expedition, it is intended to invite representatives of the greater groups of industries and thought, and the co-operation of na tional organizations will be sought in their selection. The personnel of the conference, Mr. Hoover added, will be made im so as to represent the country geographically. The commerce depart ment is to co-operate with the labor de partment on representation of lalsjr. While the business situation is steadily improving." Mr. Hoover stated, vonie ' sections of the workers may have exhausted their savings by the coming winter and they must be a mat ter of extreme solicitude.

State-house rumor has it that Melvin G. Morse will resign his position as state tax commis sioner on or before Sept. 1. This could not be confirmed or denied here today, but the rumor is circumstantially that the resignation will be forthcoming and in the hands of the governor within a few days. State officials are very reticent in re spect to the reasons which are said to underlie conditions in the tax commis sioner's office, but they are said to date back to the charges made against Mr. Morse during the session of the legisla ture, when his appointment was held up for several days pending investigation.

Rennett and Haskell into one ticket, but the effort failed when Rennett tiled a complete ticket. All three express confidence they will obtain the nomination. Tammany Hall has named Mayor John F.
