GERMANY WONT DEMOBILIZE Refusal to Disband Civil Mllltla May Lead to French Occupation of Ruhr District Bolshevlkl Threaten Western Movement Indus trial Events 4n America. By EDWARD W. PICKARD. As was easily foreseen, the Italo Fiume war has come to a speedy end with the collapse of D'AnuunzIo's re sistance. The poet, who had declared he would Interpose his bloody corpse letween the Italian forces and Flume, thought better of It, and on Wednes day Issued a proclamation saying that he now felt disposed to defend his life by all means, since It was not worth while to throw it away In the service of a people whom he now despises. Therefore he was about to leave Flume by airplane. The mayor of that city and Its director of national defense agreed to recognize the treaty of Ra pallo. D'Annunzio consented to re lease his legionnaires from their oaths of allegiance, and it was arranged that they should be disbanded and that the Italian government should Issue a proclamation of general amnesty. There was rejoicing throughout Italy over the settlement, for the Italians did not at all like the Job of shooting down their fellow countrymen. Peace was not attained without much bloodshed, for the legionnaires fought desperately and bravely for several days after General Caviglla's troops began the real attack. Taking advantage of the rough terrain about the city, they laid many ambuscades and conducted a guerrilla warfare with hand grenades and machine guns that cost the Uves of many regulars. In the city they poured a hot fire from the balconies, roofs and windows of . apparently abandoned buildings, and even the women helped. The Italian military authorities refused to use ar tillery against the city Itself, striving to save it from destruction, but the warships In the harbor bombarded the outer defenses. D'Annunzio was 6llghtly wounded in the head by a fragment of a shell. The curtain has cow fallen on this latest tragl-comedy of the warrior poet, who says he Is ashamed of being an Italian. Relations between France and Ger many reached another critical stage at the end of the week, when Berlin, through the undersecretary for foreign affairs, warned the British and Italian ambassadors that It would be impos sible for Germany to resume the con ference on reparations at Brussels January 10 unless France withdraws Its demand for the dissolution of the civil militia, which Is called the eln wohnerwehr. In this way Germany seeks to take advantage of the some what 6tralned relations between Paris and London and Rome. By the Spa agreement Germany was .to complete her demobilization by January 1, and if this is not done, as her intention appears to be at this writing, France will have the right to occupy the Ruhr district or Frankfort. Plans for the necessary military opera tions already have been drawn up by Marshal Foch and General Weygand. The report of General Nollet, the French chief of the interallied com mission of control in Germany, was what precipitated the matter. He told the council of ambassadors In Paris that the civil militia was a real mili tary organization of nearly two million soldiers, camouflaged as a policing force, and he presented the case in such warm language that the ambas sadors did not know Just how to handle it. So they passed it up to the supreme council, which is to meet early in January in Nice or Cannes. Premier Lloyd George said he could not take it up because of pressing do mestic affairs, and Premier Giollttl of ALARMED OVER BRITISH LAW Act Prohibiting Importation of Dye stuffs Into That Country May Seri ously Affect American Interests. Washington. By the passage of the dyesruff import regulations act, Great Britain has definitely accepted the the ory that poison gas will be the su preme weapon of the next war and at the same time opened the way for the entry of German dyes into this country. Italy declared he could not leave be cause of the Flume crisis. So far France has been Insistent on the com plete disarmament of Germany, and It is not unlikely that she will proceed alone with' the military measures seemingly Justified, by Germany's vio lation of the Spa pact. Then it will be up to Great Britain and Italy to decide whether to support their ally or to call her off, as they did once be fore, in the interests of a financial settlement with Berlin. According to secret information re ceived by the French foreign office, the Russian Reds not only are threat ening to overrun and absorb Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan, but also are preparing for another attack on Po land and the Baltic states, and pos sibly on Roumania. In the Minsk re gion soviet troops are being concen trated in large numbers, threatening especially Lithuania and Poland; and farther north about 50,000 of them were said to have crossed the Latvian frontier and occupied several towns. Esthonla, too, was alarmed by the presence of large bodies of Red cav alry on her borders. Negotiations for permanent peace between Poland and Russia were broken off by the soviet representatives, who said in effect that the Red victories elsewhere made the treaty unnecessary to them. In Podo 11a the Russians are gathering heavy forces to compel Roumania to evacu ate Bessarabia. The lakes and marshes are frozen over and cam paigning will be possible until' March. Meanwhile all efforts of the soviet authorities to arrange for resumption of trade seem to have fallen flat, owing partly to their impudent bad faith in trade matters and partly to their fail ure to stop spreading their propaganda in other countries. The United States government decided that Martens, the soviet "envoy," should be deported, and Moscow advised him to abandon his work here and submit. Most of the nations are now coming to the view that bolshevism in Russia will die out before long if ieft to Itself, and are proceeding on that theory- Evi dence that the bolshevist leaders themselves are changing their policy lies In the fact -that they are now granting many concessions to foreign ers, which Is absolutely contrary to bolshevist principles. In addressing the soviet congress in Moscow Lenine explained that this was a temporary necessity, as the country must have materials for its economic rebuilding. Information received by our state de partment is that the .bourgeoisie are more numerous than ever in Russia and are gradually regaining control, and that the tendency is toward the formation of an autocratic govern ment Following stormy sessions In Tours, In the course of which thé members sometimes came fo blows, the French Socialist party has split into three factions. The left wing has voted to obey the commands of Lenine and to adhere fully to the third Interna tionale ; the right wing opposes throw ing the party organization Into the hands of the communists ; and the cen trists adhere to the Internationale with reservations. This last faction may split, one half joining the left wing and the other going with the right. A woman agent of the Moscow Internationale, who reached Tours de spite the efforts of the government to keep her out, had much to do with the stand taken by .the extreme radicals. British organized labor has definite ly ranged itself against the govern ment in the Irish controversy, at least so far as government methods are con cerned. The labor commission which visited Ireland has made its final re port, in which It scathingly denounces the course of the English authorities in - Ireland and expresses the belief that coercion will be unable to sup press either the Sinn Fein movement or the "republican army." The latter, it asserts. Is formidable because It is not concentrated and has the sympa thy and support of the vast mass of the population. Of murders and re prisals the report says : "So great has been the provocation by the crown forces that 80 per cent of Irish men and women now regard the shooting of policemen and the throwing of bombs at lorries with the same philosophic resignation that Mr. The British act prohibits the Import tation of dyestuffs into Great Britain for ten years, which, government ex perts declared, will enable that coun try to build up her dye industry to a point of complete Independence from the outside world. Poison gas and dyestuffs both come from coal tar. It was explained, and from the manufacture of the commer cial article to the production of the military weapon Is but another step in a continuous process. By insuring the development of the Lloyd George displays toward arson and pillage and the shooting of civil ians in the presence of their wives and children." The auxiliaries black and tans and most of the royal Irish constabu lary are declared utterly unfit for their duties. To a meeting of 900 delegates repre senting three million trades unionists the members of the commission told in detail what they saw and learned In Ireland, and a resolution was adopt ed demanding that the government grant a judicial investigation into the action of crown forces in Ireland with view to punishing those guilty of crimes. The time limit for turning in all arms in Ireland expired Wednesday, and the officials admitted very few had been surrendered. The Irish Women's Organization has issued a circular defying the order of the government rendering liable to death anyone harboring a rebel. The circular says: "The women of Ireland consider It a crime for any young Irishman of military age not to carry arms In defense of his country, and It is even a greater crime for any person of Irish blood to refuse to harbor or assist our brave soldiers;" Though leaders in business and finance issue frequent statements to the effect that business stagnation in America has about reached the low point and that the future really looks rosy to them, the mass of the people are far from being optimistic, and It must be admitted that conditions seem to Justify their view. Demand has fallen to a minimum, and of course production has decreased in propor tion. Prices have declined, but while this is a source of satisfaction to the consumer, it Is painful to the producer, and the producer who Is especially mournful is the farmer. What con gress is planning to do for 'him in the way of an emergency tariff may help, but most economists doubt It. There were several occurrences of note last week in the industrial field. The most startling, perhaps, was the closing down of the Ford automobile works at Detroit for an Indefinite pe riod. This was said to be due to a marked falling off in orders and the return of many cars. Under normal conditions 50,000 men are employed in the shops that closed. The employees were told not to report before Feb ruary 1. Another interesting event was the refusal of the union employees of the Pullman company in the car works at Pullman, IIL to have their wages reduced as far as 20 per cent. The suggestion had been accepted by the employees' Industrial relations com mittee in consideration of the declln lng commodity prices and the re adjustment in industry. They said they realized the company must get more business in order to avoid dras tic reduction of working forces, an that it must cut costs to meet in creased competition. The wages of the employees' have more than dou bled in the last four years. The union men made no threat of striking If wages were cut, but Intimated that trouble would follow such action. Many of the shop workers are not In unions. . Employees of some other big con cerns, especially in the textile and clothing industries of the East, have been compelled to accept reductions In wages rather than have the works close down. x In the effort to carry out the Re publican promises of reduced expenses, the house appropriations committee cut $420,914,192 from the estimates for the sundry civil bill for the fiscal year 1922, leaving $3S3,611,292. The largest single reduction was $147,000,. 000 of what was asked for the federal shipping board. The committee also recommended a cut of more than elev en millions in the post office depart ment appropriation bill ; but .the to tal reported is $573,904,721, which Is nearly seventy millions more than the appropriation for this year. The Democrats pointed out that the total carried by both bills adds about seventeen millions to the cost of run ning the government; but the Repub licans retorted that they had made large cuts In the sums asked by Dem ocratic heads of departments. Those who are clamoring for a reduction in federal taxes may draw their own con clusions as to the prospect. dye industry, chemical experts here said. Great Britain has laid the ground work for possible widespread use of gas In warfare, as chemical factories can turn from the manufacture of dyestuffs to the production of poison gas practically at will. An influx of German dyes would mean, officials stated, that develop ment of the American Industry would be hindered and the United States would fall behind other nations in abil ity to produce poison gas In the event of war.
