Accept Harding's Proposal on Shantung
Naval Treaty Text Completed
WASHINGTON. Jan. 31. Japan
and China virtually settled their long
standing feud over Shantung- yesterday
while the plenipotentiaries of the five
great naval powers were coming into
final agreement on the treaty by which
they are to limit their sea power in cap
The mediatory proposal supported by
President Harding was the final basis
on which the Japanese and Chinese
agreed in principle after a seven-hour
session of the Shantung negotiations,
and although some details of phraseology
remain to be worked out a final settle
ment is expected by tonight.
The naval treaty text finally was
completed at a meeting of the naval
committee of 15 and a plenary session
of the arms conference was called for
Wednesday to announce the covenant to
the world. The fortifications article,
the last remaining problem, was settled
by an agreement under which the fortifi
cations "status qui)" in the Pacific is
