Allies VUwt for Russia Said
to Suggest International
Consortium to Finance
Trade.
Germany to Be Included
Geona. April 28.-(By A. P.)
riam for Rutia' reconstruction
were being finally determined upon
today 1n the conference tub-committee
on Rusian affairs and the indi
cations were that a definite proposi
tion would be laid before the Ku
tiao delegation by the week-end with
the suggestion that the proposition
be either accepted or rejectd. with
out furthr discussion.
The Italian press today gives in
dication! of what the allied propos
als are:
First, it is asserted, no loan will
be offered to soviet Russia but will
be suggested that an international
consortium be formed to finance
trade with Russia through combina
tions of firms and individuals of the
various countries represented. Ger
many will be included in the consor
tium, it is declared, and provisions
made that the United States may
join.
Colonisation of Russia.
This plan contemplates the eco
nomic colonization of Russia, with
guarantees that the autonomy and
s6vereignty of the soviet government
will not be infringed upon.
The division of trade will be ar
ranged in such a way that the
countries participating tp the con
sortium will have the opportunity of
dealing with the sections of Russia
situated nearest them. For example,
Great Britain would be given the op
portunity to trade with northern
Russia through Archangel and the
Baltic por(s, while the southern
countries would be given advantages
in the Black Sea ports.
While bending his main efforts to
ending the Russian deadlock, Mr.
Lloyd George is not neglecting his
plans for a nonaggression pact, and
several tentative outlines of such a
document have been drafted. One of
these would provide1 an international
military force to protect weaic na
tions from aggressive neighbors, .but
this is understood to have snuU
chance of adoption. .
Vice Premier Barthou, head of the
French delegation here, conversed at
length during last night over the
long distance telephone with Premier
Poincare in Paris. and as a result it
was stated this afternoon that the of
ficial, viewpoint of France with re
gard to the reply to Russia had been
harmonized, -t' ''
; Spiriot Conciliation.
The difficulty was said in confer
ence quarters to have arisen through
the growth here of a spirit of con
ciliation and co-operation which gov
ernment circles in Paris, despite con
stant informative messages, from
their representatives here, appear not
to have crasoed. v ' t ' r j
A feeling seems to pervade confer-,
ence circles generally that there is
wide recognition of the wisdom of
Establishing amicable and practicable
arrangements with both Russia and
Germany which would permit of the
restoration of those countries.
Many members of the French
delegation seem to be . convinced,
like Prime Minister Lloyd George
of England, that unless western Eu
rope co-operates with Russia and
Germany those nations, with their
overwhelming preponderance of pop
ulation, would be driven closer to
gether to the eventual detriment of
the. peace of Europe.,
' I : Beyond Bathou'a Power. '
French opinion at home is pointed
to as being influenced by numbers
of deputies who fought in the war
and who want full satisfaction for
France's terrible losses. They are
described as pushing Premier Poin
care to stand absolutely , firm, both
as regards German reparations and
Russian debts. -"It
is understood here also that the
French cabinet is being urged to in
sist upon the cancellation of the
Russo-German treaty. This is a task
beyond the powers of M. Barthou.
Even granting its possibility, his po
sition is said to be, that such a step,
in, -his belief, would only result in
forcing Germany and . Russia into
closer ties on the morrow.
