STARTS THE WORK OF DISARMAMENT Government Does Not Wait For Senate Rati fication of Treaties WASHINGTON. D. C., Feb. 7.—(By The Associated Press) —Executive de partments of the government took steps today toward carrying out the edicts of the armament conference without awaiting ratification by the senate of the several treaties, whil* the American delegation worked on their report to be submitted to Presi dent Harding and senate leaders be gan marshalling their forces for the light on ratification of the treaties. Announcement was made that the president had ordered discontinued all work on additional fortifications on the Island of . Guam and in tiio Philippine islands, thus taking note of the clause in the naval treaty which fixes a status quo for these Pacific islands. The president, it was stated, also, would order suspended all work on naval craft now building which arc destined for the scrap heap under tho live power treaty with Great Britain, France, Japan and Italy. The final order to discontinue such construction, however, will not be issued until the treaty is ratified, it was said. Secretary Weeks' in furtherance of the president's order regarding the Philippines, cancelled the orders for sending new guns to replace those in t h«» fortifications there. Secretary Henby also announced that some mili tary equipment. Including mines des tined for Guam had been ordered re turned. Secretary Weeks said the orders had been cancelled as an evidence of the good faith of this country to carry out in spirit and letter the provisions of ilu* naval treaty reapecting the forti fications of Pacific islands. Some discussion of the necessary strength of the armed forces also de vt loped today. At the White house it was said President Harding believed some reductions in the personnel of, the army and the navy would result | j from the arms conference agreements, but that they would be of ’ reasonable relativity.” The navy in bis opinion, it was ssld. should not go below 80.000 men a* the' minimum for safety. The president intends to send to the this week, all the treaties, but this was said at the White house to depend on whether the report of tho American delegates was received ! by the president by that time.

LOS ANGELES, Gal., Feb. 7.- An- j other day of investigation of the slay- 1 ing of William Desmond Taylor, fihn director, culminated in tho issuance by tlic city pollco of a circular asking the arrest of Edward F.

Thu circular was ordered forwarded to all police department}* of tho country. j It contained a picture of Sands, aald I by t’uptaln of Detectives David L.

At tho same time Captain Adams declared that Sands was the only per son whose arrest the police were seek ing in connection with the ca*»’. “Thera has been abundant wurmlao about other individuals” lie said "and havo run down countless clews relating to tho murder. But 1 can positively say that we have no loads that would "arrant iim seeking any one but Sands." The charges of grand larceny and burglary " ere preferred by Taylor, who told the police that Sands disipprared with money and other, valuables about six months ago and later returned and stole other articles from his apart ments. Tire police also Darned that 1 the person who robbed tlm apartments 1 returned r pawn ticket to Taylor show ing he’ had disposed of sonic- of the articles, giving tho name "William Cunningham Deone-Tanncl".

An incident of the day tn th« v search for Sands, was the bringing to police headquarters of a youth of that name who turned out to be a bell hoy In an apartment house who soon convinced tin officers ho won not the man want ed.
