NAT TANGLED IN REATY DISCUSSION SUFFRAGE IS WON SAYS MRS. CATT Her Enthusiastic Comment on Hearing the News from West Virginia New Vork, March 10. "Sufliage Is won, The words arc simple but they thrill as few words do or can." This was the enthusiastic conclusion of Mrs. Carrlo Chapman Catt, president of the National Woman Suffrage assncla llon, In a statement Issued hero on receipt of news that West Virginia had ratlllod the federal suffrage amendment. With West A'lrglnln won and AA'nshlnglon and Delaware nicotinic soon In special ses sion, the opinion expressed nt national headquarters to-night was that "tho struggle Is over." "People who have followed the course of woman stiff race from the outcldu with Indltfercncn or small undrrBt'indlr.r. of what has been nt stake," said Mrs Catt, "will have no comprehension of the real message which the West Virginia victory carries to women. To us It means that the nation Is won, that the seventy year struggle Is over, that the women of America are enfranchised women. "And now whatever comes out of crantlnp'tho suffrage to women, It Is snfo to predict that It will never he re sponsible for any offering to the general welfare except those things which have been well considered and Intelligently en dorsed." FRANCE RESENTS WILSON CRITICISM Lnju to Accuse Vm of Inivrrln1iin," OiM-lnres Andre Tanlleii Paris, March in. Andre Tardleu, who was a member of France's delegation In the peace conference, said to-day regard ing President's Wilson's letter to Sena tor Hitchcock: "French public opinion will be In accord with that of the government that the reproach of Imperialism cannot apply to Trance. Tt is not upon the peace treaty that such a reproach can he based. The treaty was Judged and defined bv Presi dent Wilson himself, In solidarity with the heads of the other governments, In the response addressed by them on June 10. 1!1?, to fount Von Brockdorft-Uantzau, head of the (let-man peace delegation. "That was a capital document," said M. Tardleu. who recalled that It Informed the Oermans that the peace proposed was "fundamentally a peace of Justice," and that It provided "a basis upon which the people of Kurope could live together In friendship and equity." M. Tardleu con tinued: "Neither is It o ntho present policy of Tranci- that one ran baFO the reproach of Imperialism ngalnst her. Fault Is found with us, it appears for having more sol diers In our army than before the war. That Is not our fault. Our object Is to diminish by all possible means our mili tary burden. "Hut this Is the situation: First Wc asked that part of the League of Nations create an organized armed force as an essftitial condition of disarmament In the different countries. Our proposition was rejectetl three different times. "Second The Fnled States promised us their guarantee n case of unprovoked at tack, as well by the treaty of Versailles as by the special treaty between them and us, and neither of those treaties is rat fled. "Third The treaty of Versailles Imposed on the allied and associated powers a certain number of common military duties, occupation of the left bank of the Khine. Schleswlg, Dtjnzlg, Memo, Allensteln, Marlenwerdcr, Upper Silesia and Teschen. excepting a few thousand Americans on the Tthlne, It Is French troops which everywhere bear that charge alone, fir nearly alone. Tho treaty was to be ex ecuted by several. We are executing It nnrly alone. "Fourth The negotiations in Paris had in view participation by all the allied and associated powers In the occupation of mandated territories. Here, again, the I'nlted States disappeared, and to pro tect the populations against massacres In Constantinople, Anatolia, Armenia and Cilicia It was again France that was called upon. "Therefore, I repeat, It Is unjust to accuse us of Imperialism. No one In France protests against the continual In crease of the American navy. Our tinny, like the American nnvy. i what circum stances reiitlro it to be and It Is not Franco that created those circumstances. H Is the debate going on for months In tho Tnlted States over ratification of the peace treaty that created them. Kverv- nnn knows my respect for President Wil son, but I think that In bis last letter to Senator Hitchcock he litis been unjust to France."

Mrs. O. ltasliil of Wntorhury has been brought beforo Judge ll, M, Harvey and fined J.Tin nnil costs for Illegal keeping uf Intoxicating lliunr In her home in Wuterhury, Tho ptosecutlon was started by G, H, Dale, tuwti Krand Juror, Tho ehartu against tho NAVY'S MISTAKES PROLONGED WAR So Admiral Sims Tells Senate Committee Furnishing What He Asserts Is Indisputable Evidence Washington, March la Hoar Admiral Sims gave the Senate naval Investigating committees to-day whAt he asserted was Indisputable cvldcnco thut the nnvy do partmcnt fell down almost completely during the first six months of the war. Numerous messages sent by tho admiral to tho navy department (luring tho early days of America's participation In the cfn'llct and other documents were, of fered as v?eof that despite the officer's urgent anc reiterated roquests that ev ery Hvallahle vcesej. be, sent, to tho crit ical area of jbmnrlno activity, the de partment neither followed his recom mendations or informed him of its plans and ro;i.-les. Six months after the Uni ted States entered the war, tho admiral said, tf department adopted mftny of the policies he hod urged from the firs'. The lack of wholo-hoartcd Ametlcan co-operation with the allies from tho start, the admiral s-.ld, resulted In pro longation of the wa until November, 1D1S, when It could hnv been ended 'in July; needless sncrlflce of 500,000 lives; e.pendlture of fifteen billion dollanl which might have been taved, and de struction of 2,W,OO0 tons of shipping. If the navy department ?ad acted prompt ly, he assorted tho United States would have hnd a million Instead of 300,000 sol diers In France by tho time the Ocrmuns began tlielr great drive on the western front in SInrch, 101S. Explaining that his recommendations many times were made after conferences with the allied naval commanders, the admiral said the failure' of the depart ment to keep him properly Informed as to Its plans and policies was a source of greart enibartassment to him. Instead most of his information regard ing American naval plans, he said, was obtained accidentally at tho British ad miralty or through visiting armed guard officers. When he recommended that the convoy system proposed by the Uritlsh admiralty be put Into Itnmedlnte operation, Admiral Sims said he received a coblegram from Secretary Daniels stating that "In regard to convoy I consider that American naval vessels having armed guards arc safer when sailing independently." Later adop tlon of the convoy system be said In dicated the wisdom of his recommenda tion. Taking up the situation created by thn submarine campaign, Admiral Sims said that In June. 1917, he told the depart ment the efforts then being made to curb the U-boats was not succeeding and tho necessity again was presented "of send ing all destroyers, tugs, yachts and other cruft which can reacli the critical area by themselves or be towed part way." The department In reply, he said, stated that "the department recognizes the nceeo-slty of sending all anti-submarine craft which can be spared from home waters Into active Kuropuan waters and when such craft become available will send them" and announced "willingness to co-opi'rate in every way" and that It would "consider the question of sup plying additional naval forces other than anti-submarine craft whenever the ad visability of so doing is Justified." This reply, Admiral Sims said, convinced him that the department entirely misun derstood the situation and caused him to appeal to Ambassador Pago for assist ance. In a letter to the ambassador on June 2.",, 1H17, he made most of the asser tions that brought the present Investi gation, reviewed tho entiro situation, quoted from messages exchanged with the department, and dosed with the statement that the '"war will be won or loxt within the next few months" for "if the shipping losses continue at the pres ent I ate It must In- lost because the allies cannot win." Tim admiral did tint say what was the result of the letter. Further evidence to support his conten tions Is expected to be presented by the admiral when he resumes the Maud to morrow.

Announcement by Secretary Houston that no further loans would he mado to the nlllos waa believed to-night to Indicate the adoption by the treasury of the policy favored by the debtor nations of deferring Interest puymcnts for the next three years or more. Under authority granted by Congress to extend 10.000,000,000 credits to the allied nations, the treasury department has mnde loans amounting to $0,tVj9,S34,&IO. Secretary Houston said that the re mainder of the credits authorized would not be granted as It wu thought suffi cient advances had hecn made. Discussing the question treasury ofli clals said that In view of the exchange situation and tho unsettled economic con dition of the European nations during the reconstruction period, It would seem ad visable to permit them to postpone inter est payment for at least three -years. Then, It is believed, they would be In a position trt meet their obligations. With the Interest on the, loans com puted at five per cent and totaled tho United Stales voarly Is about l7O,C0O,f'O. an enormous sum for the war-weakened countries to pay at present. Tf Interest Is funded into long term obligations, the Interest on the payments thu deferred will amount to only $23,000,000 yearly, which can be paid and the credit of the debtor nations maintained. Treai .try Qfh cials are working on recommendations to submit to Congress as to the course to be followed ir deferred payments are per mitted. It has been suggested that the Interest on the Interest be charged off, but the proposal has met with strong opposition In Congress. America's chief debtors are Great Britain with H,7i,m(m; France with $3,017,071,777 and Italy with tl,G2113S,9SC. Relglum's debt is $.H3, 14.1.000 and Russia is charged with I1S7,720.7.V.

Pleas of "lit tle, army" men to reduce military ex penses were rejected to-day by tho House, which apptoved a peace time establish ment of 20'i,O00 enlisted men and 17,820 officers, after rejecting three proposals for a similar force. The decision, though not final, was i cached by a three to ono vote, leading supporteis oi the army re organization bill to believe that ir-virtual-ly settied the peace time program. In addition to authorizing a regular army lftiiflii stronger than provided by the national defense act of 1!1G, the House also accepted a lesson of the AVorld War by adopting the principle of permitting Iho tactical organization of the army to bo prescribed by the President Instead of by law. Likewise, it approved of making separate corps of the air service, the chemical wnrfaro service and the finance department, but refused to divorce the ttausporlatlon and the construction serv ices from the quartermaster department, Representatl vo Dent, Alabama, rank ing democratic member of the military committee, opened the attack for a smaller army.
