CHINA WILL ATTEND INTERALLIED DEBTS WILL NOT BE DISCUSSED AT CONFER ENCE IS OPINION. (Western New»p*per Union Nm Serslc*.) Washington. — Thro** additional nations —Belgium, Holland, and Por tugal—were Invited by the United States government to participate in the discussion of Fur Eastern ques tions in connection with the armament conference. It wus also made known by high administration officials that the United States does not anticipate consideration of interallied debts ut the conference. The formal invitations to the three additional nations were forwurded to the respective capitals und were ex tended after correspondence between Secretary Hughes and the four prin cipal powers originally invited to send representatives to the conference. The Important interests of each of the three nations in the Far East led the extension of the invitations. China was invited to participate in the Puclfic and Far Eastern discus sions when the first invitations were issued und acceptance by Belgium, Holland und Portugal, which is re garded here as assured, will mean that nine nations will sit together when such discussions are entered into. The question of armament limitation will be discussed only by the five maj or powers. The attitude of the administration with relution to discussion of the in terallied debts was developed in con nection with recently published sug gestions in London that the British would welcome consideration of loan mutters at the Washington meeting. Officials here were represented us tak ing tiie view that the conference should be limited to matters which might involve differences of a nature likely to lead to armed conflict. In terallied debts is not considered by of ficials here in that category. The further statement was made that tiie American delegation at the forthcoming conference, lacking con gressional authority, could not agree .to such consideration of tiie debt question, even if it was desired that it should be undertaken. The admin istration’s desire that debt funding legislation be enacted in advance of the conference, it was said, was bused on practical matters, not on anxiety, tlint the debt question might arise to disturb harmony among the conferees- The invitations to the three addi tional nations were accompanied by the tentative suggestions as to the confer ence program, insofar as it relates to Pacific and Far Eastern questions, and were identical in language. That sent to Belgium reads as follows : “The invitation of the President of the United States to France, Great Britain, Italy and Jnpan to send repre sentatives to a conference to he held in the city of Washington on Nov. 11, 1921, on limitation of armaments, in connection with which Pacific and Far Eastern questions also will he dis cussed, has been graciously accepted.
