CONFERENCE FAILS REPARATIONS MEET ENDS IN DEADLOCK AS PREMIERS' DISAGREE. London. The ullied powers seem to to be looking to the United States as a last hope of preventing a definite break in the entente over reparations, following the collapse of the London reparations conference. Despite offi cial explanations, and the decision to continue the discussions In Paris, the allied premiers after three days' conversations find themselves In what appears to Le complete disagree ment over reparations. Adjournment to Jan. 1 U an effort to delay a little longer the apparently Inevitable split in allied unity. M. Poincare returned to Paris with the reparations problem as far from even a temporary settlement as when he arrived here, although his determin ation to demand partial occupation of the Ruhr for customs collections was the chief contribution to te failure of the present negotiations. There are many well Informed French observers who believed thpt France will never go this far In ex acting guarantees and If a decision is eventually taken to act alone, such action to be confined to the adminis tration of the Rhlneland It Is regarded as not unlikely that Great Britain will make one great generous offer to France before adopting a policy of Isolation.- This, It Is thought, may take the form of offering to cancel the French debt If France accepts reason able Indemnity. It Is ' thought possible In French quarters that the British might ap proach President Harding's adminis tration between now and January with the purpose of ascertaining if the United States would be willing to make possible European settlement of reparations by cancellation of the French debt, or at least entering a conference In which such a step would be considered. The next link in the long chain of the allies' struggles to get together will be forged at Paris on Jan. 2. There will be a fortnight then left for the allies to agree upon some pro gram. The moratorium granted the Ger mans expires Jan. 15, and the next payment on account of reparations, which Germany protests she Is un able to meet, will be due on that date. The agreement to disagree only temporarily, the diplomats assert was consummated in three days, em bracing four meetings of the allied premiers. The rock on which har mony foundered was the British re fusal formally to countenance the French project for partial occupation of the Ruhr and the taking charge of important German Industries. The British cabinet refused to co-operate with France in such measures. Four Bandits Rob Bank. Los Angeles.

ARMENIANS BLAMED TURKISH DELEGATE BLAMES POWERS I OR TROUBLES OF NATION. Lausanne. Ismet Pasha, head of the Turkish delegation, dashed the hopes of the Near Eastern conference for a speedy and satisfactory settlement for the protection of minorities in Turkey when, in an address here he insisted upon an exchange of the Greek popu lations in Anatolia for the Turks in Macedonia. He demanded exclusion of all foreign interference in Turkey, which, he said would protect the re maining minorities, as the Turks had always been able to get along with other nationals when they kept out of politics and were not stirred up by out side influences. Ismet declared that Turkey would not accept Lo:1 Curzon's proposal to have the League of Nations administer the affairs of the minorities, as that would mean that the foreign powers would continue their interference in Turkish affairs and encourage the mi norities to appeal to the League of Na tions. This plan, he asserted, would result in the exploitation of minorities for political erds under "the lying cloak of humanitarism." The Turkish chief delegate reviewed the entire history of Turkey from the time of the conquest of Constantinople The Turks, hes aid, had lived peaceful ly with the Greeks und Armenians un til 100 years ago, when the Russians began agitating against the Moham medans under the pretense that Russia was the protector of Orthodox Chris tians in Turkey. He charged Russia with being re sponsible for the attack Gladstone made on Turkey In behalf of the Ar menians and maintained that the so called Turkish atrocities against Ar menians frequently had been in the nature of reprisals for pogroms per petrated by the Armenians through en couragement from Russia, which wanted some excuse for invading Tur key. "The Armenians brought the mas sacres on themselves," Ismet Pasha declared. "They have abused Turkish generosity and dabbled in politics." According to Ismet, there now are no minorities in Turkey which can claim the right to belong to any other nation, thus disposing of the Arme nian claim for a national home in Turkey. Lord Curzon replied in a spirited manner to Ismet, saying it was the first time the conference had seen the Turkish delegate as a historian, and always had thought of him before as a soldier and a diplomat The British secretary for foreign affairs said the conference was deal ing with the affairs of peoples in the greatest distress and must find a so lution for the problem of the miser able refugees, and without regard fot ancient history, and must frame a treaty which would protect these un happy people. In emphatic tones he denounced Ismet's demand that there be a forced exchange of Turkish and Greek populations and declared that the minorities must remain in both countries.
