upon financial conditions ai that time.
It was Intimated, however, that the

"I am led to adopt the plan of Issu

readily than would a longer term Issue.
"I have not yet roatVod a conclusion

mier Clemenceau the American execu

to assassinute him.
President Wilson appeared to be
in excellent health and spirits.
Tin? president did not tarry on the
station platform. He let Ills hand
linger longer in that of M. Clemenceau
than anyone else and spoke earnestly
to the premier as they strolled down
the platform. After lie had congratu

the premier turned and smilingly said:
"My hide is too thick Cor a little
piece of lead to do me any harm."
Kinerglng from the station, Presi

motor car, which drove at high speed
along the left Imnk of the Seine, cross

Anarchist Cottin Makes Statement
Saying He Is Opposed to All
Constituted Authority
Paris, Mareh 1*.—Finite Cottin, (lie
anarchist, who recently made an at
tempt upon the life of Premier Georges*
Clenieiieeau, was yesterday sentenced
to death by the eourtmartial which
was trying him. The verdict of the
courtimirtiul was unanimous.
After Captain Mornet, the prosecu
tor, had asked for the death penalty
on the ground that the crime had been
premeditated and no mitigating cir
cumstances shown, Cottin rose and
made a most amazing statement. He
said he was a militant anarchist, an
anti-militarist, an anti-patriot anil
against all constituted authority.
"I would have shot the kaiser with
more relish than M. Clemenceau, be
cause he, too, represented authority,"
he continued. "I have no country ;
tny country Is the world."
He made a long, rambling state
ment. saying that he had gloried in
the deed he had done and that lie
favored bolshevism and spartacanism
and lie wished to strike down all who
were in authority.
"'hen lie concluded. Oscar Bloch
made a plea that Cottin was Irrespon
sible, asking that the court should not
pronounce the death penalty.

London, March I".—Premier Lloyd

says it understands. The new draft
of the peace treaty will he signed be

read to them and they will he invited
to sign it. There will he no discus
sions with a view to alterations of the
principle articles of the treaty. If it
is thought necessary, questions involv
ing the adjustment of details will be
referred to a special commission.
Paris, Mardi 12.— Tlie first rough
outlines of the peace treaty are begin
ning to take form,as a result of the
rapid disposal of the main questions
before the council of the great powers.
The preliminary draft will be well
along within the present week, and
with the arrival of President Wilson
tomorrow final revision will proceed so
as to have the document ready for
presentation by the end of next week
and thus conform to Marsha! Foch's
limit of March 20, though the British
apparently are inclined to doubt the
possibility of carrying out the pro
gram on time.
The treaty promises to lie very long,
chiefly owing to detailed provisions
oncoming the German military sys
tem and methods for its control by
the allies. It. will embody, however,
only five or six main divisions,
namely :
First—Military, naval and aerial
Second—Reparation, war damage.
Third—-German boundaries.
Fourth—Economic and financial pro
visions, and, probably fifth, responsi
bilities for the war.
All these main subjects are in an
advanced stage and have been either
adopted or agreed upon in principle,
»ith the exception of some reserved
points on which President Wilson and
the premiers* are to take final action.
The military terms adopted yester
day were in the hands of the 'drafting
experts to lie put in the form of
articles in the treaty. The naval and
aerial terms are agreed to, except as
to reservations regarding the disposal
of the large German ships and the
dismantling of Helgoland and the Kiel
To Determine Boundaries.
Germany's eastern, western and
northern boundaries are now before
the council or in the committee on
reports. The eastern and northern
boundaries are to be ' determined
tomorrow. The western boundaries
will lie settled Friday.
The consideration of reparation is
set for Saturday, though this question
may go beyond that time. This cov
ers all the principal objects except
for responsibility for the war. It Is
the desire of the French to liuve this

so as to settle the question, and this
may be conceded, though it Is an open
Talk of Indemnity in Trillion«.
The consideration of reparations
has Introduced the word "trillion" in
recognized money probably tor the
first time in any single financial oper
ation, for, although millions and bil
lions often have been used in war
finances, no sum lias yet been reached
touching a trillion.
In estimating the war losses of all
the powers the first figures of one of
the great powers aggregated a tril
lion francs, and those of another power
were slightly above a half trillion
francs, namely, six hundred billion
francs. These first estimates have
gradually been reduced until the pres
ent aggregate covering the losses for
ail countries Is one-fifth of the high
est estimate and in final form prob
ably »ill he in the neighborhood of
thirty-five or forty biiiUin dollars.
