Chancellor Ebert told the United Pres3 today that Germany will do everything to comply with peace conditions based on Pres't Wilson's 14 points but that if the allies make further de mands he will not take the respon sibility of signing the peace terms. He said Germany needs peace Immediately, that ehe may fc-et food and materials so her people can go to work. He tleolared the Spartacanü lost their revolt and that no further ferioua outbreaks will occur If the people are fed. If thy are not fed, he said, "we must be ready for any thing." Must Havo IUr Peace. "We must have a fair peace," declared Ebert. "We stand on Pres't Wilson's platform, which was the basis on which we signed the armis tice. We will do everything to com ply with conditions founded on his points. It is possible, though, that the enemy will make further de mands. Germany cannot accept them.

I ESTS OVER CREDENTIALS Representation of Smaller Na tions Taken Up on Closed Meeting. NY WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS. T,y t'nlted Pres: PARIS, Jan. 20. Pres't Wilson met representatives of Great Bri tain. France, Italy and Japan in a closed conference this morning to take up the contests arising from credentials of some of the small na tions" delegates. These contests must be settled before the peace congress can get down to business on the league of nations. While nothing has been made public concerning any conflict in re gard to representation, it has been known that the Balkan situation provided opportunities for Just such a tangle. The status of the Mon tenegrin delegate has been held in abejance until the formation of the new Jugo-Slav nation is definitely accomplished. It is clear that the course of the peace congress will not be smooth until all questions of the eligibility of the delegates are amicably adjusted. No date has been set for resump tion of the general peace congress, but it was understood it was ex pected to get under way tomorrow. Meanwhile, memoranda on the league of nations. international labor legislation and responsibility for the beginning and continuance of the war was to be submitted to day. A committee on credentials, con sisting of a representative of each of the nations present, was ap pointed at Saturday's meeting. To day'n conference on this matter, however, opened with only the five big powers represented. TO Ili:PIlli:T ITALY. ROME. Jan. 20. Former Pre mier Salandra and Signor Barzitai have been appointed members of the Italian peace delegation by the council of ministers. DISCUSS CON don't know what would happen aft er that." Asked what ho thought of the re sponsibility for the war, Sbert said: "That Is a question I cannot an swer oif-hand. Personally, I feel that blame was not Germany's alone." The conversation was directed to the Spartacan uprising. "We need peace Immediately, so we can get food and materials that will enable the people to go to work," he said. "The charge that the govern ment encouraged the disorders so as to escape its debts is absolutely false. The reason we did nothing against bolshevism at the beginning of the revolution was that the army, flocking homeward after the armis tice, was disorganized and useless. Now the government forces have been rebuilt and we intend to use every means to suppress bolshevism, which without doubt, Is an enemy to society. ' Ingcr of Bolshevism Over. "The great danger of a bolshe- vist victory is ever. The struggle centered about Liebknecht and his associates In Berlin. There are still tr&ces of bolshevism in certain cen ters outside of Berlin, nourished by agitators. "Examination of captured Spar- tacans showed that they were most, ly under nourished, sub-normal per sons. If they are fed, we need ex pect no further serious outbreaks. If they are not fed, we must bo ready for anything. There is a sort of desperation in certain circles a feeling that nothing makes any difference. These people are the vic tims of agitators, who, we are cer tain, are supplied with Russian gold. "As soon as the economic situa tion clears up, normal life will start again and internal troubles will cease. It Is a question of peace and help from the entente." LAM TO SHEA Strict Licensing of Meat Busi ness is Proposed by Congress. r.r T'niti Pres: WASHINGTON', Jan. 20. rians for a warm tight In congress to shear the packers of their power are being laid today by senate and house leaders.

Py United Press: PARIS, Jan. 20. America's posi tion as a strong maritime nation depends upon the ability of its peace delegates to uphold the high standard of working conditions ef fected by the American Seamen's Act, Andrew Furuseth, secretary of the Seamen's Union of America, de clared today. Relieving that while freedom of the seas is occupying the conferees' mind, freedom of the seamen may go by the board, Furuseth has brought his long lean, angular frame here to haunt the Qual d'Orsay. He fears that other na tions, particularly Great Britain, may attempt to obtain international legislation that would abrogate the American Seamen's Act, but is con fident that the American delega tion will oppose any siich move. Bring up Motif Standards. "The effect of the American Sea men's Act has been to bring up wages to the standard of American seamen everywhere except among the Oriental countries." Furuseth said In an interview with the United Press today. The Act also Is steadily improving living conditions, not only on' Amer ican ships, but on others. The Brit ish basic wage is now 12 pounds a month, to which the government adds a bonus of three pounds, mak ing a total practically equivalent to our wage of $75 a month. When the American Act became effective, per mitting seamen under any flag to leave their ship In an American port and sign on again under that port's normal age, it resulted in an enor mous shortage of Brittish seamen. As a consequence, the wages in Rrit Ish ports began jumping. Now wages are practically the same everywhere, although the French government, by making all seamen man-of-war men, was able to prevent desertions because of the penalty. Have Data on Increase. "We know that the British gov ernment has been supplied by its consuls all over the world with data showing how the American Sea men's Act has brought up wages In each port. We know the greatest pressure has been exerted on the Rritlsh government by British ship owners to obtain International leg islation emasculating the act. We have been told that Premier Lloyd George would 'rescue' the British ship owners from the effect of the Act. It may be that our informants were only expressing hope, but the seamen must be on their guard." Representatives of seamen from all parts of the world will meet In London Feb. 2 4. to consider ques tions affecting their interests. TO CALL STIIIKi:. F.t T'nitM Ire: NEW" YORK, Jan. 20.
