President Harding Calls on Commis.
ston. Asks as to Moves.
Washington, June 1.-While railroad
executives were pressing 'before con
gress today their plea for relief from
financial emibarrassments, President
Harding took direct action to satisfy
himself that a revision of freight
rates, particularly on necessities,
would be a part of the general rail
way readjustment.
Walking unannounced Into the of
fice of the interstate commerce com
mission, the ipresident inquired of the
commissioners what they were doing
toward the relief of shippers who had
found some of the .present rates tin
reasonably burdensome. lie was as
sured that the whole subject was -un
der investigation and that the com
mission hoped soon to effect broad
revision through the voluntary action
of the roads. The hauling charges for
fruit products over iWestorn roads
were made a specific example by Mr.
Harding in pressing his inquiries. The
commission officials replied that the
fruit sCheIulos already were receiv
ing informal consideration.
Although it was indicated that the
question of ratos prompted the pres
ident's call on the commission, it was
assumod that during the half hour's
conference mention also was made of
the road's pro:)osal that the govern
ment discharge at once its debt to
them girowing out of federal control.
This piroposal was renewed before the
senate interstate commerce committee
during the day by Samuel Rea, presi
dent of the Pennsylvania lines, who
arigue d that such action would be no
inore than in keeping with the word
of tle government given at te time
the rois were taken over. The sug
gestioin is known to have received
carieful con sideration by tie presi
dent and his advis1rs, and -a the

No Agreement Between China and
Berlin, May 1.-China and Germany
aiparently are no closer to an actual
restoration of diplomtic relations
than they were six months ago in
spite of the fact that -unofficial dele
gations are at work in both coun
tries trying to .perfect a treaty.
Hlerr von Borch heads the German
delegation which Is :working in Pek
ing and Dr. Chang is chairman of the
Chinese delegation which is living at
the Chinese legation in Berlin.
-Although China passed a resolution
declaring it was at peace with Ger
many, following the refusal of the
Chinese to sign the Versailles treaty
because of the dispositlon made of
Shantung province, the Chinese gov
ernment has not yet abrogated its leg
islation forbidding Germans to carry
on 'business in China.
Consequently, German firms are un
able to conduct busines with the
'Chinese in the name of German cit
izens. While the Chinese war logisla
tion is not rigidly enforced, it still
stands on the Chinese statute books,
and German trade is not regarded as
safe until there is some written
agreement betweenl China and Grer
many which wll prevent legal com
It now seems unlikely that China
will sign a treaty with Giermany tin
til the I'nited States devises some
plan of restoring diploia tic relations
wit'h Germany. China followed Amer

relations with Gormanly and did not
