April 10.?An accounting of the $350,000,000 worth of enemy property held' by the government was given thei Senate today if, a report the first cpjppiled since February, 191if, filed, by, Allen Property Custodian Thomas W. Miller in response to a resolution by Representative King,. Utah. ? "The final disposition of this property," Mr. Miller said, "will have a direct bearing on the econ omic relations between this coun try and Europe with particular re ference to the late enemy powers. The sequestered property wilJ also have a bearing on the question of the settlement of American clainu against Germany." Dtecupsing the $415,000,000 of American claims against Germany, Mr. Miller recalled the terms of the Knox-Porter peace resolution indicating that no disposition should ne made of en^my property he ld by tho United ^States until the German government had provided for the satisfaction of all Amer ican claims. He asserted thai Congress must evolve some plan whereby American claims against Germany may be_/adjudientcjl by j sbmo proper tribunal-' created- by law. "There ore several classes of claims against Germany," Mr. Mil ler said, "as for instance, those of AmoricanB whose cash was seized by thd German custodian and who are now being offered the - return of their money at -the depreciated value of the mark, which today.. Is valued at one-third of a "cent foit each mark or a reduction of 72?i f per cent from the .pre-war value. This proposition amount/? to prac tical confiscation on the part Of the" German government. There are claims on file with the Stile Department for loss or property i and life at sea. growing out or submarine sinkings, previous to April 6, 1917. # "If the German property were returned today without any condi tions, the tax law in force in .Ger many would require German na tionals or other people under tho jurisdiction of the_Qermaj^ .SPjer.n."% ment, whoso propertywas; return ed to them, to give up taxes to the German government a major por tion of the funds, returned. One of tho taxes assessed is known as: the empire need tax. the revenuos of which aro utilized by the Ger man government for its own na tionals, and a second tax known as the indemnity tax. the proceeds of which aro paid into reparations going; to our late allies." Dr. Stoetzer Preaches Two Special Sermons on Sunday "If a man die, shall he live! again" was the text from which; Dr. II. G. Stoetzer preached at thoj morning service in the Presbyter ian Church yesterday. Dr. Stoet zer declared that all the faith and! hope of the church was founded on the principle of another life beyond the grave. He said that the desire and the hope for the greater life was a normal, natural desire with all people, and that if God would satisfy the other natur al normal desires, such as hunger and thirst, surely He would satisfy the greater Kpiritual desire. , In the evenlug Dr. Stoetzer preached from the text. "We went through fire and water, but rhoui broughtest us into a wealthy place." i Dr. Stoetzer pointed out in re-j gard to present conditions, tlmt with acres of dinmohds under our, feet, we are spending out time in quarreling instead of getting out the wraith that God has put with-' in roach. He made an apppal for the Golden Rule in business enter-j prises of all kinds. 23 French Soldiers Killed i in Explosion in Silesia BERLIN, April 10?Twenty three French soldiers and one German foreman are now stated to have been killed and ten others injured in an explosion at the Huetten Smelting works, near Gleivitz, with the expectation that martial law wpuld be proclaimed.

The. tin official reports assert a hidden| mine was detonated during*,a search for concealed arms. The German authorities are unable to1 conduct investigations, the advices state, as the inter-allied commis sion for, Upper Silesia is in. con trol, but it is declared that so far no evidence inculpating German subjects had been found. .. - ?'
