3 ALLIED EXPERTS TO RECOM.
MEND THAT CONCESSIONS hE
MADE TO GERMANY.
1. Brussels.-Payment by Germany of
100.000,000,000 marks in gold remains
a the basis upon which experts and del
9 egates to the second financial confer
o ence. In session here, are working.
e This amount, although far below what
a was authorized by the treaty of Ver
1. sailles. Is considered collectable on
e ly on condition that Germany is help
1 ed along the liner suggested by the
y German delegates.
e Allied experts In secret individual
t. reports recosgnie Germany's real no
. ceshlties, and delegates are impressed
r- by arguments that Germany is an is
r. solvent credior who must be main.
. tained as a going concern. The ex
, tent to which strict fulfillment of the
e Versailles treaty may be waived de
e peads upon the allied governments.
before which recommendations have
e been made by the delegations.
C German delegates are still working
on the list of questions submitted by
the alliep, vrich covers a wide range.
. Allied expertL behUev direct taxation
bin Germ ' is not high enough. The
r Germans are being asked whether
. their taxes on alcohol, beer, tobaeco
d an dsugar are as high as those on the
a same products in France and Great
o Britain. Other questions concern
r the German finanelal polley relative
s to taxation of wealthy citizens and
possible tax increases within a year
The German representatives have
Sbeen asked to estimate the amont of
German wealth at present in neutral
countries and to tell how Germany
plans to compensate her citizens tor
property sequestrated and liquidated
abroad. It is suggested that/German
wealth in neutral countries has been
accumulated by the practice of Ger
man arms saipplng geeds at rest to
r associates in neutral countrles.
Delegates have bee pledged to so
