BERLIN. Feb. 9. (By Wireless.)
An international sold currency issu
suggested in a serious article in th
Frankfurter Zeitung Is interesting
government experts here as a pos
bible way out of the reparations
crisis. The plan, which is presum
ably non-official in origin, was tele
phoned here this morning and has
been avidly seized upon by the Ger
man reparation experts as a, possible
counter proposal with which the Ger
mans can go to London.
Starting with the supposition that
a plan is expected from Germany
which will eatisfy the expectations
of the allies, especially France, the
Frankfurter Zeitung writer, who is
described by the newspaper as a rep
aratlon expert who contributes the
article in a private capacity, makes
the following suggestions:
Mala Poiats Outlined.
That an international arrangement
be made by which the countries which
have gold reserves will agree to hold
international gold certificates to be
redeemable later at fixed intervals
by Germany, these certificates to
have claim on all future gold posses
yions of. Germany, and which obligate
the reichsbank and all other German
financial institutions.
As each country in the international
agreement takes over a portion of
these gold certificates, it will neces
sarily withdraw from circulation
similar amount of its own currency.
so as not to disturb its own ratio.
Thus money values throughout the
world would not fall through the
sudden dumping of this artificial
gold.
The writer admits his only reason
for other countries to accept these
German credits, which is what the
certificates amount to. is to help the
rapid payment of the indemnities and
to put the world on a basis to, get
down to international business again
Germany hypothecates her future la-
bor and gains, but does so to an in
ternational group instead of to a
smaller allied group.
Plan I Involved.
Of course, the writer presents his
case in a much more involved form
eo that It is difficult to get what he
is driving at, but It comes to this
He says these gold certificates even
. tually will fall largely into the -hands
of the Knglish and American govern
ments, which, for trading purposes,
can use them as freely as the cur
rency they had withdrawn from circulation.
Frankfort bankers evidently take
the matter very seriously, and the.
plan is believed feasible, though only
on the presumption that the United
Srates agrees to the gold carrency,
which would inevitably find its way
to America, chiefly through the liqui
dation of French debts.
The matter comes to my attention
through a most serious German offi
cial, a reparation expert. Otherwise
the government as yet has not for
mulated a reparations plan to offer.
There is desultory talk about try
ing to renew negotiations on the Sey
doux plan, though this is discounted
in advance, as it is known that the
French government could not accept
it. as it" needs more rapid financial
action.
Official Report Prepared.
Charles Bergmann. the German rep
resentative in Paris, who arrived here
night before last, is still making up
ins report officially, but it is known
here that the return of the British
ambassador is much more important
politically, as he is expected to give
the government some sort of a tip
about Premier Lloyd George's future
attitude.
wnetner there is any question of
Germany going to London is not yet
clear, but Berlin is acting as if it
would somehow be arranged. There
Is much less general defiance in the
air today than for the last two days.
A reasonable point of view was ex
pressed by Director-General Hein
eken of the Korddeutscher Lloyd, who
says:
"The German government in making-
counter proposals for reparations
must start with the fact that France
Is also ruined, and that therefore
Germany must pay. But in consider
ing the amount of the indemity, Ger
man proposals must be conditioned on
the fact thai Germany has lost her
merchant marine and her colonies."
Oregon Normal school will furnish
on Saturday, February 12. in the
school chapel, a rendition of the can
tata, "The Highwayman," written by
Alfred Noyes and set to music by
Deems Taylor.
John Claire- Monteith of Portland
will assist the chorus and sing a
group of songs. Mrs. Rychard, , a
member of the faculty, will give a
reading of the poem. "The Highway
man." The school orchestra will play
several selections. The accompani
ment for the cantata will be played
by Miss Edyth Driver, a student here.
The entire production, as well as
the direction of the orchestra, has
been under the direction of Miss Marie
Schuette. head of the department of
music. On Manday of last week Miss
Schuette gave a talk on the life of
Deems Taylor, and illustrated her
explanation of his work on "The
Highwayman" by passages sung by
the glee club.

WASHINGTON'. A solution of the
immigration question now occupying
the attention of congress as one of
the bis after-the-war problems is
made by John Hays Hammond in a
statement by the National Welfare
union. The famous mining engineer
urges that Ellis Islands be estab
lished In foreign countries to handle
the prospective immigrant. And he
also suggests immigration be regu
lated on a yearly basis so the number
of undesirables be reduced to the
minimum.
Percentage of previous immigrants
new fully naturalized show. Mr. Ham
mond declares, that such figures sug
gest a method which would be both
fair and practical of limiting immi
gration. This would be to decide
upon the number of immigrants to be
admitted annually and then appor
tion them among the different races.
"A high percentage of naturaliza
tion," Mr. Hammond says, "naturally
gives a race greater value from an
American point of view than that
race showing only a small interest in
the L'nited States and its Institutions.
The greater part of the immigrants
who become fully naturalized come
from northern and western Europe,
while those with a oto percentage of
naturalization are from southern and
eastern Kurope. 1 v
This plan not only would improve
the character of immigration, but it
would permit the work of 'weeding
out to be carried on abroad, before
the departure of the prospective im
migrants from their native lands, and
thus prevent some of the suffering
which is caused now by turning them
back after they have reached Ellis
island. Instead of an Ellis island on
this side, there would in effect be a
number of Ellis islands abroad where
those could be turned back who are
not admissible.
"Immigration problems should be
vested in a commission with much
broader powers than those now exer
cised by the immigration authorities.
The commission should be clothed
with a certain degree of discretion in
its enforcement of the law, so as to
permit the commission, for Instance,
to be lenient in its requirements when
the country Is in need of labor and
rigid during periods of depression or
unemployment.
VThis problem Is a serious one and
Is closely related to the welfare, of
he country. The health, morality,
ndustry. education, politics, standard
of living of the people of the United
States are affected by the character
of immigration which comes to these
shores.
'In fact that of recent years
arge proportion of the immigrants
ave been people whose customary
food, housing and clothing and whose
average of education and political ex
perience are of a much lower stand
ard than those which have pre.vaile
here, there lies danger. These immi
grants may be industrious and law
abiding, but their presence has an in
fluence upon wages and living condl-
ions."
Mr. Hammond adds that the Bur-
ett Immigration law, passed over
President Wilson's veto several years
ago, with Its literacy test, has not
had an opportunity to be fully test
ed; but he declares that the reading
test is so simple that it can be easily
met by a short period of coaching
and It docs not solve the problem. It
does not restrict the number of unde
sirables who may come from south
eastern Europe. What the United
States needs, Mr. Hammond main
tains, is that its immigrants should
belong to a xace similar to our own
or show themselves willing to be
come citizens and adopt this coun
try's social standards.

DUBLIN.-; The whole traffic of the
country is now approaching a crisis
owing to the refusal of the railway
men to carry munitions or armed sol
diers or police' and the consequent
suspension or dismissal in each case
of the drivers and ftuards who re
fused. The Rradual depletion of- the
staffs has reached a point at which
there are not enough mn to work an
the lines and some of them have been
closed. .
laily soldiers present themselves
as passengers and are refused, lead
in? to the dismissal of more me"n. In
leas than a month this is expected to
lead to the closing down of all the
lines, with the exception of the Great
Northern which Is worked by railway
men who. thnneh belonerin? to the
trades union, have declined 'to share
in what they regard as an anti-British
political demonstration.
The business community views the
prospect with alarm, ijhe govern
ment is determined to insist on the
railways carrying all traffic, and has
threatened that, if they do not do so,
the subsidy which enables the divi
dends to be paid may cease. This has
disturbed the railway shareholders
who include plenty of Sinn r'einers
who sympathize politically with the
anti-munitions policy of the men. Al
ready the farmers in western Ireland
cannot get their cattle to the eastern
ports for transmission to Engrland.
Traders have a difficulty in trans
mitting merchandise.
Everybody is hit and the question
Is raised whether the demonstration
is worth all it costs. Some of the
news-papers who encouraged the nten
to resist are now Inviting them to re
consider the position on the ground
that it has not hurt the government
at all, and may ruin Ireland.
The men's leaders remain firm and
are supported by Sinn Fein opinion.
Everybody is seeking for a way out
and a formula that would save every
body's face is eagerly searched for.

In a notable paper, published in Le Progress Medical, Professor
Jacques Carles, the eminent Bordeaux physician, calls attention to a variety
' of serious digestive difficulty found in war time and since, as a heritage of
the war, which, for the w4nt of a better name, he denominates war dyspep
sia. Thus brought into notice, the medical profession in this country and
elsewhere has addressed much attention to the disorder. It is not only a
severe atonic dyspepsia, but it is accompanied with pronounced asthenia
and low pressure. Obviously the usual digestive medicaments have little
efficiency in this condition, as the indications are for that which will give
tone to die whole alimentary musculature and at the same time favor the
secretory functions pancreatic, hepatic and enteric. After" careful experi
ments it was found that a reasonable procedure is afforded by the Bark
Root Tonic, a Pacific Coast product, efficient service being thus rendered
war dyspepsia" should not continue to stand monumental of the war strife.
