IT AI'I'KAHS that the projihHs In
Washington were sll wrong. The
griwt conference seemingly Is K''"K to
reach ami alK" an agreement on limita
tion of imvitl armament without wultlng
to settle the protin-ms of the 1'nrlflc
and Ihe Far l-Uist. ThU tendency Is
a result of Secretary Hughes' down

ference In Its first sesMlun the Amer
lean proNial as to navies, llrlefly.
that proKMtal Is that the United
States, tlreat llrltaln and Japnn aicree

years build only for replacement; thst

and .Ki.0(0 for Japan; that the sea
lwer of the three nations l maln
Inlned on this basis. There are other
features of the program, but every
one U fnuilllnr with It by this time.
The conference, snd the world, were
at first BNtoundcd by this unexpected
laying of the American cards on the
table, and then the plan was greeted
with loud snd unlvrrxsl acclaim. The
delegates of the other nations could
not, If they would, refuse to Indorse
It, and at the second open aesnlon
Great ltrltalii. Japan, Italy and
France, formally accepted It "In prln
chile," with minor modification.
ThfNC, as set forth then snd later,
were as follows:
lty Great llrltaln Limit sice and
tonnage of submarines; permit con
st ruction of one capital ship a year
during ten year period to retain ship
yard facilities; ermlt retention of
more llctit milkers and guntmata to
tmllre the hlh was; reduction In
number of navel ship building yards.

A committee, of which t'ol. This

eg the great powers seemed reedy
with a program. But China, whose
ststim Is the crux of the situation,
set before the committee on far
iiMiern ufralrs the demands of Ute

head of the Chinese delegation, was
the spokesman and he held a pre

regions, abandonment of special rights,
monopolies, privileges snd extraterri
torial rights, and withdrawal of foreign
troop from her eoll and jiermUslon
to direct her own domestic affairs
und govern her own Internal snd
foreign Millcea. She does not demand
that all foreign monopolies imd
privileges In China be abandoned at
once, hut that she be given n chance
to put herself on n level with other
lowers and that as time goes on snd
conditions wsrrunt the economic and
political fettera on her be loosened.
The Ilrltlsh delegation approved the
Chinese demands In general, esiieclally
the open dour policy ami the abandon
ment of "spheres of Influence." The
Japanese, It was understood, accepted
the Chinese program In principle but
would Insist that withdrawal or in
terest In China should Include all
foreign powers. The Chinese dele
gates any they mnke their demands
In behalf of all China, Including the,
southern purt where Sun 1st en
holds somewhat precarious sway,
and that Manchuria. Inner and outer
Mongolia, Tibet and Turkestan are In
cluded In "the Chinese republic."
It Is believed one result of the nis-
cusnIoii of Chlnu's program may lie
the friendly abandonment or tne Angio
Japanese alliance, and the Itrltlsh
would be slad to see this source of
trouble replaced by some form of agree
ment by ths great powers.
FltANCE, ss has often licen pointed
out, I especially Interested In the
mutter of reduction and limitation of
land armament, and Premier Hriand
took the lead In this, though he had
no concrete plan nor any working
agreement with the Tnlled States dele
gation. In his speech he discussed
the military situation In Kuroe,
artlcularly as It effects France, set
forth the nutuInT of mm under arms
In the vsrlous Kuropean countries and
made plain the menace of the lted
forces, capeclnlly In Ituasla. Nor did
he neglect to call attention to France's

thst the French will not consent to
plans for radical military armament
reduction until the Itusslan and Teu
tonic threats are removed.
OVKU In Kuroie the league of Na

lug flouted by Jugo Slavla, and It has
determined to show that It can slop

Next Januury Germany Is due to puy
a reparations installment of $100,0tX),
000, und In Februury a quarterly pay
ment of uhout $00,000,000 on exports.
Her financial exjierts are wondering
where It Is to come from and the
silled reparations commission In ses
sion In Berlin Is working over the
problem. The commission believes the
Germans can raise the money for those
two payments and urge them to do so
as show of good will. There was
reason lo believe that If they did, the
French delegates would consent to
grant concesslona for the rest of the
year. The commission rejected a plan
of the Indi'stiiul leaders of Germany
to pawn the country's Industries as
a guaranty for the repartitions pay
ments; Instead It suggested that the
Industrial Interests make mcrlflccs for
their country Instead of try Ing to prof
It from Its misery.
That Germany Is mlserrble In some
respects Is made evident by the riots
In Berlin caused by the Increasing
cost' of foodstuffs. Many shops were
looted. High rlces, of course, are
caused by the decline of the murk.

In turn rejected, and nn exchange of
notes between Lloyd George and Craig
left the statua unchanged. The Ulster
Ites reiterated their determination not
to submit to anything considered a
violation of Ulster's rights. The
British premier's stand was strength

THK congressional conference com
mittee on the tax revision bill has
been Ironing out the differences be
tween the house and setiste measures
with considerable rapidity, both aides
making concessions. One of the lm
portsnt actions was the elimination
of the house bill provisions for the
exemption of foreign tradera and
foreign trade cortmratlotis. On Thurs
day the conferees suspended their
meetings to allow the house to vote on
the question of surtax ratea. The
senate had fixed the maximum rate
at fs) ier cent and the houso at 32
per cent. The "Insurgent" Kepubll
cans of Ihe house were determined to
carry through the senate plan so the
leaders turned to a compromise. Just
before the house met President Har
ding took a hand In the affair by In
forming the house conferees that a
maximum surtax rate of 40 r cent
would be agreeable lo the administra
tion. The house, however, by a vote of
201 to ITS. Instructed Its conferees
lo nci-ept the W) icr cent rate.
