f Spa, July 14 (By the Associated
Press). Premier Lloyd George received
Dr. Walter.Simona, the German foreign
minister, at the , latter'g request this
afternoon and told him emphatically
that the allies were not bluffing.
The allies, Mr. Lloyd George declared,
Intended seriously to take measures
for enforcement of execution of the
Versatile treaty unless the Germans
meet the allied modified terms regard
ing ceal.
, Spa, July 14. Field Marshal Wilson
of Great Britain, who was summoned
ke.re yesterday by the supreme allied
council, after the German- delegates
pillaged in the conferenre in this city
had rejected the allied solution of the
coal delivery problem, is expected to
arrive here to-night.' He is expected
to immediately confer, with Marshal (
Fpeh of France, who also was sum-j
moned b$ the council, and with the al- j
lisft nr.m!pfn. .
r- - . -
. In aome quarters there is expectation
that the Germans will make a fresh
offer during the day..
Marshal Foch and General Weygand,
kis assistant, arrived here from Paria
at 3:30 o'clock this morning, and, with
the entire) French delegation, called on
Fremier Millerand to present their re
spects on the occasion of the French
national holiday. Later the delegates
held a consultation before going to the
Konstantin Fehrinbach, the German
chancellor and head of Germany's dele
gation here,. and Dr. Simons, German
foreign minister, suggested to the al
lied governments that they send a com
mission composed of ministers and ex
perts, to Essen to meet working men
and their representatives for the pur
pose of talking over the urgency of in
creasing coal production. This proposal
wis made yesterday afternoon, but the
premiers have not yet replied.
Dr." Simons explained to them his
idea was this could be done immediate
ly and the work of the commission
be completed quickly, not taking more
than three or four days. The allied
ministers, however, do not appear dis
posed to enter into direct negotiations
with the German mining unions.
, While the allied delegates were en
gaged in a conference this morning at
the Villa Fraineuse, the secretary of
Foreign Minister Simons called at the
villa and had a short talk with Sir
Philip Kerr, the secretary to Premier
Lloyd George, regarding a conference
this afternoon between Or. Simons
and-the British premier.

May Change the Complexion of South
American International
. Politica.
Buenos Aires, July 13. Dr. Jose
Maria. Escalier, chief of the republican
party of Bolivia, which is reported to
have overthrown the Guerra govern
ment, told the Associated Press to-day
that he planned to return to Bolivia
within a week,- having received dis
patches that the revolution had been
successful in three of the principal
Bolivian cities, La Paz, Oruro and Po
tosi. Dr. Escalier, who was presiden
tial candidate of his party in 1917,
and opposed Jose Gutierrez Guerra,
who has been ousted from control, haa
made his residence in .this city for sev
eral years, but has made frequent trips
to Bolivia, and was made chief of the
republican party last November.
The revolution in Bolivia, if euccess
ful, seems likely to change the com
plexion of South American interna
tional politics. It probably will upset
the recent accord between Bolivia and
Chile relative to the former's aspira
tions. for an outlet to the Pacific and a
new situation in the Taeno-Arica con
troversy may be created.
Dr. Escalier explained the status of
affairs relative to an outlet for Bolivia
by declaring, that,-while the Guerra
government sought a Paciffc outlet
through Arica, the title to which is in
dispute between Chile and Peru, the
republican party claimed the out
let 'should be through the Chilean
por of Antofagasta. This was one of
the porta that Bolivia lost to Chile in
the war of 18H0. ,He asserted the new
government purposed to withdraw the
claim for the Arica outlet which was
presented to the league of nations and
present, instead, claims for Antofagas
ta He indicated Bolivia, which recent
ly has been on the verge of hostilities
with Peru on account of he former's
aspirations regarding Arica, now would
draw closer to that country.
He said the Bolivian national policy
would be American, and that she
would follow the lead of this United
States regarding the league of nations.
"While the army has apparently
joined the revolution and imprisoned
President Guerra and his cabinet," -he
said, "this is fundamentally. a popular
uprising for the restoration of the free
oVm of the press, fair elections and
other, liberties. It is not merely an
army miitt?y.'' : j
Confirmation of reports that the rev
olution has been successful has not
been received by$ the Bolivian lega
tion here.' .
Thousands Kneel Before Two Disciples
on Liau.
Man worship is still practiced in
China, according to Rev. E. 8. Bur
ket, Baptist minister of Changning,
who found two disciples of the late
Liau, seated on thrones and receiving
the obeisance of thousands of their
Liau,' who achieved local fame about
thirty years ago because of his reputed
power of healing disease and reliev
ing the oppressed in spirit, was ex
ecuted by tly authorities, who feared
an uprising. Two of Liau's disciples,
Ling Shuk and Lai Sam Shuk, how
ever, like their master, began to heal
diseases in his name and gradually
were raised by their following to the
same godlike rank accorded to Liau.
Ling Shuk is 71 years old and Lai
Sam Shuk eight years his junior. Sev
eral ornate temples have been built to
Liau. At the main one, located at
Liau's birthplace about 15 miles from
Changning, the missionary found gath
ered more than 2,000 people to cele
brate Liau's birth anniversary. The
two immortals were seated on the
highest of a series of terraces with an
empty throne between them for the
spirit of Lia, Before them stood a
larga table covered with ornamental
objects and in front of this the wor
shipers go through strange gymnastics.

Chicago, July 14. Hopes for the sur
vival of the new fusion party were at
ebb tide as the all-night conference of
the new.body'a resolutions committee
dragged along to-day in an effort to
get together on a platform acceptable
to Senator La Follette. ,
-The extreme left, which yesterday
controlled the amalgamation and forced
ita platform desires on the more con
servative elements, in the convention,
(truck a snag when.it met the veto
of the probable presidential nomine of
the new party. Forty-eighters, who
constitute the right wing group of the
fusion movement, are bitterly opposed
to the more soicalistic ideas of the
radical labor faction. In this atand,
thev have the, support not only of La
Follette but of several minority or
ganizations subscribing to the political
Single Taxers Withdraw,
The first evidence of a possible break
ing up of the new party movement fol
lowed last night's session, when the
single taxers withdrew, adopted their
one plank platform, and nominated
presidential candidate. For president
they chose Robert C. Macauley of
Philadelphia, and for vice-president
they selected R. C. Barnum of Cleve
land. They quit the new party, Jer
ome C. Rents, a single tax leader, said,
because it waa not only apparent they
could not obtain their, platform de
sires and a candidate committed to
them " but also because they "could
not stand the socialistic ideas" of the
dominant labor group.
The birth of the new party yester
day,' after five day of conference was
attended by tumultuous scenes in which
more than once the fledgling movement
faced shipwreck on the rocks of jeal
ousies and group antagonisms. In the
very beginning, the labor party -organi-ration
grabbed the rudder and steered
the course until consideration of the
platform resolutions began to inter
pose strenuous objections to the rele
gation of their delegation to the back
ground. ' '
There followed quickly demands for
revision of the procedure by which
the resolutions were being passed.
Leaders of the forty-eight delegation
insisted on a more prominent position
in the proceeding. In an effort to
placate the angry delegates, the labor
leaders surrendered the chairmanship
to llarley Chrintensen of Ctab, who
presided over the original forty-eight
, The concession failed utterly, how
ever, to iron out the widely divergent
views on platform planks. As a result,
the fusion movement was again placed
in practically the same position in
which it had been during more than 50
hours of backing and pulling in con
ference committee.
Forty-eighters then played their
trump card when they brought Senator
La Follette' influence to bear and de
mand platform com-e-.8ions liefore their
presidential candidate would consent
to make the race. Questions of nation
alization of essential industries 'anil a
plank dealing ,mith foreign relations
were the principal stumbling blocks.
La Follette' representatives held out
strongly against inclusion of these
plank 'a dictated by the labor par-
. Two possibilities, therefore, stood
out to-day:
First, that for the sake of harmony
the labor leaders may yield to the 1--Follette
force and permit changes in
their platform drafts; second, that
they may remain steadfast in their de
termination and demand a candidate,
mho can rieic on their declaration of

A Use for Jack Pine.
The announcement that manufactur
er have found a use for the despised
jack pine as a source of pulp for mak
ing wall board continues an old story
into a new chapter.
There wa a time when Michigan
forests were counted valuable niainh
for their white pine, with Norway a
much less esteemed second choice.
Mulligan "white pine ma the Wst in
the world and so common that any
body might have all he wanted of
the'finest and clearest lumber. Hun
the quality began to run down a lit
tle as the best tree fell, and finally
there wa no more white pine. Nor
way followed and hemlock, which had
hec'n considered worthless, came into
the market. In early day aUo there
was no end of walnut for interior work
and a good deiJ of it ma used a
rou-h lumlier. At the same time what
was" then called white mood, but i
more commonlv known now as Tel
low poplar, mas a common building
material cut in Michigan forest and
built into Michigan home. But the
walnut grew scarce and the laiitiful
tree fron mhich the white wood came
wa even scarcer. Ahout that time,
builders began to use white pine where
the better wood had been used, and
so another descending scale of lumSer
oiialitr began to be run.
But' nobody thought that anything
would ever 1 done with jack pine e
cent to renle it a worthies. There
are large amount of it in Michigan
and the tree l.arp ay it rearhe. it
greatest development in thi state. I
it doomed also, and ha. the old ex
perience in destructive exploitation
taught Michigan nothing about for
estry? It salvation thu far ha been
the 'general belief that it i good for
nothing, but even if it prove to have
onlv a ierr moderate degree of use
fulne it "will claim an outstanding
virtue in the fact that it !?
tl 'worst land in tbe Mate. If the
worst tree can Mill make the worst
laa.1 rood for something, surely it de
serves careful conservation.-Del ro.t

Traction Company and City Will
Watch Results for Four Months
Before Proposing Permanent
, Fare Inside City.
Business before the board of alder
men last night was so light that the
regular weekly session lasted only a
half hour, during which time a quanti
ty of bills were ordered paid and some
minor matters were attended to.
Among the latter was a proposal from
the Barre A Montpelier Traction
Power Co. to try out the five-cent fare
inside the corporate limits for another
four months 'in order to determine
whether such a charge under normal
conditions would bring in as much re
ceipts as the six-cent fare. In other
words, the company was willing to ex
tend the trial as proposed by a pre
vious city council, such willingness be
ing due to the belief that the five-cent
fare had not received a reasonable
trial in the four mouths expiring June
.10 because of the excessive snow of
March and the labor suspension during
all or part of the three succeeding
The Traction Co. made formal pro
posal for extension of the trial with
out submitting any figures as to the
receipts for the four-month period just
expired, and the board of aldermen
gave formal approval of the extension
of the trial. Under the proposal as
originally made it was left to the re
sults to determine whether there
should be a fiv e -cent or a six -cent
fare in the city limits.
K. W. Chesley of Waterbury made
application for a license to run a mer
rv -go-round on the Pearl street va
cant lot for two weeks, with a side
privilege of selling popcorn, soft
drinks, etc. All the aldermen consid
ered that a merry-go-round in that lo
cation would lie a nuisance and voted
against the application.
The resignation of Raymond C. Lu
pien as a regular fireman in the Barre
fire deparfment was read and accepted.
Mr. Ltipien gave as his reason for re
signing "insufficient salary."
