PROBLEM TAKEN UP
New States' Envoys Heard at
HUGE WAR DEBTS PENDING
Disposition of Enormous Burden Is
Proving Difficult Task Some
the council of four at Paris has reached
a full understanding by which the
United States will retain the 700.000
tons of German shipping seized in !
American ports when this country en
tered the war.
Great Britain had proposed that this
tonnage as well as German ships seized
in other countries be placed In a com
mon pool and allotted on the basis of

Russians Fighting Bolsheviki
to Accept Covenant.
PARIS, May 26. (By the Associated
Fress.) Representatives of the new
Etates carved out of- the former HapB
burg monarchy were given a hearing
today before the reparations committee
to present their objections to the pro
posed solution of the Austro-Hungarlan
financial problem under which they
would be held responsible for their
share of the pre-war debt, the war
debt, the war issue of currency and
reparations and would be required to
compensate Austria and. Hungary as
they will be constituted in the future
for the value of the public buildings
and property inside their limits.
The protests against this great bur
den were met sympathetically by the
council of four, which sent the ques
tion to the reparations sub-commission
for a rehearing. This submission will
be supplemented by Franco-British rep
resentatives, who are understood to be
opposed to any change.
The belief is held here that a new re
port will be made, exempting the new
etates from any payments on account
of reparation for public property taken
The prime factor in the negotiations
heretofore has been the fact that about
3.000,000,000 francs of the Austrian pre
war debt is held in France and the
French government has promised . to
secure repayment to its nationals.
Hence it has been anxious to distribute
the financial burden, in order to pre
vent the bankruptcy of the new Austria

Offers of Washington Canners
High Market Is Cleared.
TACOMA, Wash.. May 26. (Special.)
Washington canneries are offering
high prices for strawberries, and be
cause of the demand from this direc
tion dealers and growers in the Puyal-
lup valley do not believe that prices
will drop very low this season. Can
ners stand ready to take all the ber
ries offered at $2 a crate. At 10 cents
a pound the grower stands to make
as much as shipping to the commission
houses, where berries must bring about
$3 a crate retail.
Production throughout the state has
been cut down somewhat, as many
fields have been plowed under to get
rid of the root maggot. Growers eay
it costs $1.22 to produce berries, which
would make the canners' quotation
equal to that of the open market.

the state supreme bench, is senior
member of the firm of Bridges &

Mr. Bridges, who has lived here many
years, is one of the most widely known
lawyers of southwest Washington. He
has been repeatedly honored by mem

to expel the girl whose apparel was the
subject of the decision, according to in
formation received today by Wood.
'Their decision is final so far as this

It Wouldn't Pay for Cigarettes.
LOS ANGELES. May 26. Mrs. Clara
Baldwin Stocker rewarded her estate
manager, Walter T. McGinley, with
$50,000 for recovering diamonds alleged
to have been stolen from her, accord
ing to her testimony in the supreme
court in the proceedings brought by
her son, Albert E. Snyder of San Fran-
c'sco. Mr. Snyder asks to have hia
mother declared incompetent to handle
the 110.000.000 estate left her by her
father, the late E. J. ("Lucky") Bald
win, California turfman, and a trustee
appointed for her properties.
"Wasn't that rather liberal?" Attor
ney Leroy Edwards of Snyder's counsel
asked Mrs. Stocker.
"I don't think so," ehe replied. "My
diamonds were worth $200,000."
Mrs. Stocker testified that before
giving Mr. McGinley the $50,000 she
had been considering presenting him
with Los Angeles property for his serv
ices in the diamond recovery. The in
come irom mis property was -00 a

"Wouldn't $200 a month have been
enough of a reward?" Mrs. Stocker was
"Certainly not," she answered, "that
wouldn't buy Walter's cigarettes."
The plaintiffs counsel brought out
this testimony, they said, in an effort
to prove that Mrs. Stocker had evi
denced her incompetency by giving Mr.
McGinley more than $1,000,000 in money
A telegram Mrs. Stocker sent from
her Arcadia home near here last
August to Mr. McGinley in New Tork
also was touched on. This read:
I was told today you are married
and have been for five years, and took
your wife east with you. Is this so?"
"Why did you send that telegram?"
Mrs. stocker was asked.
"Because I wanted to know."
"Why did you want to know?"
"Oh. I Just wanted to know. I didn't
