TACOMA, Wash., Sept. 9. (Special.)
Limitation of armament in some
form as a result of the international
conference to be held at Washington
in November, and a reduction in the
expenditures for war purposes, -was
predicted by Wesley L. Jones, United
States senator, who was in Tacoma

ference will accomplish something
toward a reduction of expenses," said
Senator Jones. "Perhaps I think so
because I hope so, but I am sure the
people of the world feel that some
thing is necessary to stop the war
waste. If the representatives of the
foreign governments show an inclina
tion to put obstacles in the path of
such a reduction, I believe they will
be forced to reverse themselves by
the people of their own countries."
Senator Jones made a positive de
nial of the rumors that have been
circulating regarding a reported break
between himself and Senator rom
dexter on the federal appointments in

attitude of the new shipping board

slump in shipping is due to a world
wide economic condition.
