PARIS. Feb. 5. (Special Cable.)
The storm of applause that Rreeted
the Paris agreement has died out
and yielded to skepticism and doubts.
Kxamination of the proposed settle
ment by economists and hard-headed
folk, who deal in securities and mer
chandise instead of theories and
phrases, has brousht the conviction
that amoi.gr the reparations projects
thus far tentatively adopted the
latest is by far the most Impracti
cable. Indeed, it Is recognized now as a
typical politicians' agjreertlent. Prc-
P mier RrianH finvin? made allied soli
darity the cornerstone of his minis
terial declaration, had to wring, at
all costs, complete accord from the
conference. Lloyd Georpe appears to
have allowed him a diplomatic vic
tory, realizing the agreement pat
ently to be unworkable and always
subject to modifications.
One Deitperate Hope Held.
One desperate hope that the Paris
reparations agreement will endure
depends entirely upon the chance
that America will discount the prom
Issory notes which Germany will be
required to Issue in anticipation of
the 42 annuities. This hope is not
taken seriously in financial circles.
where it fs perceived that if America
consented to such an arrangement the
discount would far exceed the 5 per
cent on which the annuities are calculated.
Two definite gains, however,
neither of which has been emphasized,
have come from the conference. First,
Briand has received a lengthened
lease of power one which will prob-
ablv last until the new American
administration is installed. Secon 1
there is the firm resolve to disarm
Germany.
Germany's disarmament will re
move the principal excuse for main
taining large armies elsewhere and
thus will greatly strengthen Ho
llands of those advocating a genera,
reduction of armament.
Rrland .(mrrlria Sympathizer.
The maintenance In power of the
Briand ministry insured France the
continuance of a staunchly republican
regime, the only regime, it is said,
with which America can deal frankl
and fruitfully. Briand's personal sym
pathies are perhaps, not excesslvelv
pro-Americam but his political ideals
correspond closely to those on whien
the American government is based
and this cannot be said of those likely
to succeed M. Briand, if he is over
thrown. The mischief of the reparations set
tlement Is essentially to be ts self
contradiction. Financiers and eco
nomists are amazed at the suggestion
of an export tax. which if not passed
on to the consumer and thus con
verted Into an indirect tax on all the
allied peoples, thereby maintaining
high taxes, must inevitably ' make
German exportations impossible, lis
only result would be a paralysis ol
German industry. It would prevent
the payment "of reparations and would J
stop the flow of German raw ma
terials and manufactured goods to the
stricken nations of central Europe.
Any deliberate effort to prevent the
re-building of Europe coull have
hardly accomplished this resu't more
effectively.
Objections to Be Heard.
This contradiction arises from tho
clashing interests at court. Added to
the popular and political Interests in
seeing Germany paying heavy indem
nities is the interest of these com
petitors who hope to keep German
industry from recovering. BDth of
these Interests cannot be satisfied
simultaneously and efforts in this
direction would result in unworkable
plans.
The, new agreement, however, must
not be considered as final. Germany's
objections, ir sanely formulated, will
receive a hearing. Meanwhile, criti
, cisms appearing in France, as well as
. in England, may soon convince the
allied premiers that modifications are
, needed. The discussion in London on
February 26 of the near eastern sit
ualion appears likely to raise almost
insoluble difficulties in the French
1 and British viewpoints and ma lead
to the reopening of other issues.
It will not be surprising to see all
questions left over from the peace
conference adjourned to a date suf
ficiently after March 4 to admit at
least an informal sounding of thj
coming administration of President
elect Harding.
restriction upon that minimum which
is proposed by the house joint reso
lution." Representative Mondell, republican
leader, said the message presented n"
arguments that had not already been
before the body and that further dis
cussion was unnecessary. He asked
for an immediate vote.
A motion to adjourn was voted
down overwhelmingly.

The opinion that the people favor

"I further told the committee," he
said, "that the country was in a very
bad financial situation and hardly

that revenue undoubtedly would fall

At the shipping board meeting it
was stated that a large volume of

Federal Patronage Dlaeusnea.
Although the conference of the
Washington delegation was ' called
for the ostensible purpose of dis
cussing irrigation, it became known
that federal patronage was a live
issue during the conversations.
Harry Daugherty, the political em
bassador extraordinary and minister
plenipotentiary from President-elect
Harding, brought the tip to Washing
ton that presidential postmasters and
other large federal appointments
would be taken from under the civil
service. As a result, the manner 'as
to how these appointments will be
handled was discussed. It is under
stood that it was the sense of the
meeting that the matter should be
laid over until the new administra
tion has taken charge of affairs.
It has been known for some time
that President-elect Harding is fully
cognizant of the fact that President
Wilson, after a great many deserving
democrats had been carefully placed
jn good offices, issued a series of
executive orders covering them into
the civil' seiwlce law. Some of the
most act've supporters of Senator
Harding, both before and after the
national convention, have been urg
ing him to uncover these deserving
democrats and give the republicans
