Paris Delegates Insist on Full Pay
of War Debts While London Is
Willing to Cancel Them.
GENOA, April 28. (By the Associ
ated Press.) Two historic documents
dealing with the reconstruction of
Russia have been submitted by
France and Great Britain to the eco
nomic conference and tonight were in
the hands of a special drafting com

The special drafting: committee will
report to the full subcommittee Sat

after approval is given the report,
will submit it to the soviet delega

France Wants Debts Paid.
France Insists on the full payment
of Russia's war debts and the resto

debt, is favored by France. She de
mands that the soviet conclude before
December 31 an agreement with rep

state bonds in order to provide for
the payment of interest.
Arbitration Is Proposed.
If an agreement is impossible, ac
cording to the French contention, the
soviet must promise to accept the de

would be president, to be designated
by the chief justice of the supreme

Duel of Words Brought Forth.
Today's discussion of the two
drafts brought forth a duel of words
between Premier Lloyd George of
Great Britain and Louis Barthou,
chief of the French delegation, who
the auditors described as both witty
and satirical. Slgnor Schanzer, Italy,
as usual, took a leading role in the
discussion, urging conciliation be
tween the French and British atti
tudes. In this stand he was supported
by Dr. Motta, Switzerland, and M.
Mr. Lloyd George characterized the
French project as elegant in form,
but defective in important features.
He objected to France's picture of
Russian disorganization, saying It
would displease the Russian delega
tion. Moreover, h'e added, France's
draft spoke over much of agriculture
and commerce while it was superfi
cial on the momentous question of
Frank Statements Requested.
E.very country, Mr. Lloyd George
Insisted, should say frankly what it
was disposed to do for Russia. He
urged the formation of a consortium
with prec'se offers from each nation,
specifically saying what It was ready
to do, not necessarily in actual mon
ey, but in general guarantees and re
garding a resumption of commerce
M... Barthou did not share the Brit
ish premier's viewpoint and described
the British draft as "too religiously
The understanding tonight was
that M. Barthou would proceed to
Paris some time tomorrow to discuss
the general situation with Premier
Poincare. There were unverified ru
mors this afternoon that he would
not return to Genoa. .
According to information from
French sources, the British draft pro
posals susrgest that Great Britain has
a fund of tJ5.00.000 available for de
velopment in Russia which would be
placed at the disposal of Englishmen
Interested in that country. It also is
asserted that Belgium and Japan pos
sess large amounts of capital for
economic development In Russia, that
other countries could send technical
experts to Russia and that Italy could

Joint Warning by Foreign Lega
tions, Issued on Previous Day,'
Apparently Is Ignored.
PEKLV. April 29. (By th Associ
ated Press.) Fighting began this
morning at dawn at Chang Sin Tien,
12 miles southwest of Pekira.
Heavy artillery firing is audible in
PEKIN, April 2S. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) The foreign legations
today sent the Chinese government
a joint warning against possible
fighting in Pekin between the troops
of General Chang Tso Lin, governor-general
of Manchuria, and Gen
eral Wu JPa -I . u, commander of the
forces "In central China.'
The warning said the powers rec
ognized the gravity of the military
movements in the vicinity of Pekin.
It called attention to the severe con
sequences that might develop should
any damage occur from the dropping
of bombs by airplanes to the nation
als of their governments. The Chi
nese government was reminded of
penalties that had been imposed upon
it in the past.
The diplomatic body, with the min
isters of all countries present, took
their action In view of the threaten
ing outbreak of hostilities between
the Chang Tso Lin and Wu Pel Fu
troops near Pekin. Chang Tso Lin
is expected to arrive shortly at lien
Tsin to direct the movements of his
forces. Wu Pel Fu was reported to
have reached Pao Ting Fu, 90 miles
southwest of Pekin.
Both armies are equipped with air
planes and artillery.
Their fronts are 30 miles apart.
The military commanders at the
American, British, French and Jap
anese legations have adopted meas
ures for the protection of the Pekin
Tien Tsin railroad, which the diplo
matic officials have approved and
sent to the Chinese foreign office.
Foreigners in Pekin do not appear
to be apprehensive in view of the al

against the inclusion of girl students

At Its Annual Meeting.
Radio dances, a promise at the dawn
of the radio era, came Into being In
Portland last night during the con
cert by George Olsen's Hotel Port
land orchestra, which was a part of
the programme sent broadcast from
The Oregonian tower between 8 and
9 o'clock. Many couples who attended
the radio cance of the Oregon national
guard at the armory tripped to the
music of the orchestra In The Orego-
nian tower, and gatherings in several
homes over the x;ity reported after
wards that they had danced to the
orchestra music. All of the persons
reporting said that success had at
tended the experiments and that eimi
iar dances would be held next Friday
Besides the dancers, many others in
Fortland and in surrounding com
munities heard the orchestra music,
which is a regular part of the weekly
programme. A new feature was in
troduced when Mias Nina Dressel
well-known Portland soprano, sang
two selections with orchestra accom
paniment. Miss Eressel, who Is an
excellent singer, has sung in the past
with the Olsen orchestra and she was
heard by radio clearly and distinctly
above the music.
The musical programme, which was
abbreviated on account of lack of time,
consisted of eight numbers. The two
solos were "One Kiss" and "Just
Little Love Song." The other num
bers on the programme were "Sing
Song Man." "Cutie," "Radio Biues,'
'Liebestraum," "I Want to Write a
Melody" and "Bygones." :
I Want to Write a Melody" was
an unpuplisnea production py me
Fanchon-Marco company of San
Francisco, and was. sent to Mr. Olsen
with the special request that it be
tried out by radio for the first time.
The composers were listening at the
Little club In San Francisco.
The concert was one of three parts
of The Oregonian programme. The
firs', part was a children's story told
by Jessie Hodges Millard, head of the
children's department of the central
library, and the story was "Robin
Hood" and the shooting match on

arresting the negro for forgery.

LOS ANGELES, April 28. A grand
jury will be impanelled tomorrow
morning by the Los Angeles county
superior court to investigate activ
ities of the Klu Klux Klan.
This was announced by Presiding
Judge Willis, following a meeting
late today of the 12 of the 23 super
ior judges. "The present emergency"
caused by alleged Ku Klux Klan ac
tivities, Judge Willis said, was the
j sole reason for calling the jury to

Willis said, were the only ones In the

Action Urged Several Day.
District Attorney Woolwlne had
been urging this action for several
days, but Judge Houser of the crimi
nal department of the court, to whom
had been delegated the matter of de
ciding whether to call a jury, has been
111 for some time. His colleagues
delayed their action In the hope he
would be able to take up the matter.
The impanelment will take place in
Judge Houser's department, but Judge
Willis said it was doubtful if Judga
Houser would be able to officiate
The order provides that the JuTy con

District Attorney Woolwlne and
his assistants, who -are working on
the case, today divided their time be
tween questioning persons who came
to their office on more or less mys
terious messages, and conferences
with the superior court judges.
Other Outrages Investigated.
The raid at Inglewood last Satur
day night. In which Constable M. B,
Mosher was fatally wounded while
acting as a member of the raiding
party, has been definitely connected
with the klansmen, according to the
investigators, and It developed today
that this was not the only mob out
rage in the county under Investiga
tion. The district attorney's office au
thorized the announcement that a
"well-known and reputable citizen"
of a community near this city had in
formed the officers he was taken
from his home at night by a band
of masked men, horsewhipped and
otherwise maltreated. This occurred
some time before the Inglewood raid
and the man appeared to have been
afraid to inform any regularly con
stituted authority of the attack.
The district attorney's men made it
plain they would welcome any simi
lar revelations and would guarantee
full protection to anyone making
Statement to Be Published.
Another Incident of the day was
the closeting with the district attor
ney of W. S. Coburn, grand goblin of
the Klu Klux Klan for its "western
domain," and N. A. Baker, "kleagle,"
or organizer for the klan in Los An-
geles. Baker made a statement to the
investigators yesterday ln which he
admitted, they said, that he took part
:n the Inglewood raid. Baker's attor
ney said this statement would be re
duced to writing and given to news
papers by the district attorney.
Mr. Woolwine, after receiving the
written siatement declined to make
it public. When Coburn and Baker ar
rived today the former declared that
If the dUtrlct attorney did not pub
lish the document. Baker would pub
lish it himself. After the interview
with the district attorney the klan
leaders refused to ' say anything
further about the statement.
Documents Are Inspected,
District Attorney Gearhart of Fresno
county joined in the inspection of
documents seized by the district at
torney at the Klu Klux Klan head
quarters here. He said he found some

of officers and others connected with

of Idaho today decided in an opinion

The order of Judge Reddoch of the

by peaceful persuasion for publlo sup

necessary to enjoin against violence.
But the decision essentially bars the
placing of pickets in front of or near
