Harding to Be Seen About
Secretary of Interior.
Herbert Hoover or Representative
Mondell Considered as Best
1 for Successor.
"Washington, D. C, Deo. 30. Fol
lowing the publication today by the
Washington Post of a positive
statement that Secretary of the In
terior Fall is to resign before March
4, western members of congress be
gan to take a deep interest in the
appointment of a successor. Some
of the persons mentioned as possible
successors to Secretary Fall are not
at all satisfactory to the west and
plans are in the making by which
the president is soon to know the
wishes of tha west.
If President Harding chooses to
shift Herbert Hoover from secretary
of commerce to secretary of interior,
all well and good, but, otherwise,
the west desires to be consulted be
fore any appointment is made. An
under-surface fight has been going
on in congress for several months
against measures designed to de
velop the west. ,
Eastern Papers in Attack.
Eastern newspapers, especially
some of the New York papers, have
given expression to this subter
ranean opposition. An example of
this antagonism to the west has
cropped out In the form of attacks
on the Smith-McNary reclamation
bilL The favorable method of men
tioning it is to stigmatize it as a
"western conspiracy to loot the
treasury." Foremost among the
candidates mentioned to succeed
Secretary Fall is Carml Thompson
of Ohio, one-time assistant secre
tary of the interior and admittedly
a very high-minded man. Western
ers are asking, however, why any
one but a western man should be
appointed to this cabinet position,
which is given up almost entirely
to the administration of publio
business west of the Mississippi
At the time of Secretary Fall's
appointment, as a westerner him
self, it was declared he understood
the west at the beginning and
would do everything within his
power to speed the development of
the section. His going will create
many regrets, and western, members
of congress will fight to force the
selection of a secretary of the in
terior who has been educated to
"western needs.
Reprvxentattve Mondell Considered.
As matters stand today, the west
In congress will back Representa
tive Mondell of Wyoming, majority
leader of the house, who a few
months ago was charged with being
an obstacle to reclamation legisla
tion. About that time, however,
something happened which obvious
ly caused Mr. Mondell to reconsider
his attitude, and since then western
members of congress have forgot.
Being strong with the administra
tion, it is calculated that he wtll
male the most formidable candi
date upon which the west can unite
and once in office will exert the
influence essential to the advance
ment of the west.
Representative McArthur of Ore
gon will probably head a delegation
which plans to call on the president
some time next week to state the
position of the west relative to the
filling of any vacancy at the head
of the interior department.
Senator Favors Rap at Maryland
for License Policy.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 30. Senator
McNary sprung into extreme popu
larity in Washington today, when
local newspapers published a state
ment from him that he would sup
port an amendment to the agricul
tural appropriation bill denying fed
eral aid for road building in any
state which does not recognize
licenses for motor vehicles granted
by the District of Columbia or any
other state.
The more than 95,000 automobile
owners in the District of Columbia
are compelled, besides paying for
district licenses, to also carry on
their cars license tags from the
state of Maryland, making some
thing more than a double tax on
them because of the extraordinarily
high license fee charged by the
neighboring state. Senator McNary
is in charge of the agricultural ap
propriation bill.

War on Anto Speeders TTrgred.
In a special report accompanying
tne indictments the grand Jury rec
ommended more stringent enforce
ment of automobile speeding ordi
nances and suggested warning to
dance iall managers against permit-
ting unchaperoned minor girls- to
frequent their establishments.
A reason for the warning with
reference to careless automobile
driving may be seen in the fact that
the grand jury indicted two men
for involuntary manslaughter for
deaths alleged to have been caused
by their cars. Matt Bauletich was
indictSd on this charge for the death
of Minnie Phillips, November 11, and
Charles F. Bennett for the death of
Mary E. Berry on November 7. In
each instance it is charged that the
women were run down and fatally
injured by cars driven by the in
dicted men.
Woman Indicted for Murder.
Mrs. Dorothy Feles was indicted
for murder in the first degree for
the death of her little son, James,
which she is allej-eu to have caused
by turning on the gas. A little
daughter was also suffocated by
gas, but the Jurors returned an in
dictment for only the one fatality.
Mrs. Feles, believed to have been
mentally irresponsible at the time,
turned on the gas tn her home the
night of December 12. It seemingly
was her purpose to kill herself as
well as the children, but she recov
ered. Indictments on statutory grounds
were returned against three men:
John C. Lane, James Lewis and
James Wiegand. Two true bills
were returned agpinst both Lewis
and Wiegand.- The date of the al
leged affair in which the men en
gaged was November 14. They were
subsequently arrested.
The - special report of the grand
jury after giving a resume of the
cases' handled contained these rec
ommendations: That a cottage be built for the

Four Members of La Montague
Family Said to Have Taken
Intoxicants to Club.
NEW YORK. Dec 30.-5nvestiga- i
tion by a federal grand jury into a
bachelors' dinner at the fashionable
Racquet and Tennis club on Park
avenue at which liquor was alleged
to have flowed freely has brought
indictment of 13 men, including four
members- of the La Montagne family,
prominent in society.
Two indictments were returned
charging conspiracy to violate the
Volstead and' Internal revenue acts,
through which approximately 30,000
gallons of assorted liquors were al
leged to have been sold Illegally.
Some of those indicted also were
charged with having forged liquor
permits and other papers.
Federal Judge Knox received the
Indictments on a day on which two
other juries one in the court of
general. sessions in New York, and
the other in Brooklyn had handed
up presentments urging repeal of

fective and wasteful of public funds.

Limit of English Concessions
Is Included.
Evasion by Germany Is Opposed,
but Nation Disagrees With
France on How to Collect.
LONDON, Dec. 30. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Since the adjourn
ment of the allied premiers' meeting
here on December 11 in order to
avoid an open break between Great
Britain and France on the subject
of reparations, there has been a
flood of rumors and reports con
cerning the solution of the dead
lock that Prime Minister Bonar Law
was likely to propose when the
allied representatives resumed their
discussions In Paris.. "
Only today, however, was an
authoritative statement forthcoming
from official clr.cles. This was to
the effect that the British premier
would go to Paris next Monday,
armed with a new plan for a final
and complete settlement of the
whole question of Germany's war
Immediately after the London
breakdown, Downing street's hopes
were that the French attitude would
change, but the last fortnight has
shown the trend. of French official
opinion to be away from, instead of
toward the--British, with the result
that Mr. Bonar Law yesterday pre
sented to his cabinet that which it is
stated comprises the utmost limit
of British concessions.
Plan Is Outlined.
In. its broad principles the plan
is said to be as follows: '
First Any reparations programme
agreed upon in Paris must be a
final one which will put a definite
end to tha . wrangling of the last
three years and give an opportunity
for the general economic recon
struction of Europe.
(Second A moratorium for Ger
many is essential for a period of
from two to four years in which
time Germany must balance her
hudsfet. Ktflhiii tha maiir un
dergo general financial reform un-
uer auieo, supervision nut not under
allied receivership.
third, Reduction of the repara
tions total to approximately 2.800,-
000.000. whioh if nnt f ,-...,..,
after Germany is given a fair chance
to make good her ebligations, will
be obtained by an ascending scale
of economic penalties.
Paris Reports Discounted.
British official circles discount re
ports from Paris that the French
have formed definite, unchangeable
plans to be enforced against the
Germans beginning January 15.
ii is scateo that Premier Poincare
is likely to be surprised to find
Mr. Bonar Law in full svmpathy
with him against the German tactl
of evasion and non-fulfillment of
pledges, the only differences of
opinion being In the method of nb
taming reparations jjayments, the
British remaining as unconvinced aa
ever tnat the French plans for con
trol or tne German sources of pro
duction will result in anything but
social and economic . upheavals in
the districts taken over.
The speech of the American km-
retary of state last night is taken
Dy tne British as full support of
their stand and. while his recom
mendation for a non-nolitlcal board
of experts to fix the reparations
total is not new, the British con
sider that his statement places
.trance in an isolated position.
Mussolini Absence Jiot Vital.
The absence of Premier Mussolini
of Italy is not likely to affect the
Paris conference, according to the
British view. It is recalled that
SIgnor Mussolini also announced
that it would be impossible for him
to attend the London meeting, Jjut
uittL lie urnveu on lime.
As leader of the fascistl move
ment, Signor Mussolini presents a
picturesque figure and attracts
popular attention, but it is pointed
out that the presence of the Belgian
premier, M. Theunis, is far more
essential, for In Paris, as during
the recent London conversation and
the conference here last August,
Belgium is expected to take the role
of mediator, seizing upon every
point likely to bring France and
Great Britain Into accord.
British officialdom is unwilling
to consider the possibility of a
deadlock at Paris, for such a result
would be regarded as disastrous.
The allied representatives must
agree among themselves for, it is
pointed out, there is no hope of
assistance from America.
Debt Funding- Held I n.
The British debt funding commis
sion is not expected to obtain defi
nite results which could possibly
have a beneficial effect upon the
Paris negotiations . by January 15,
when the temporary moratorium for
Germany .ends and the original rep
arations schedule of 1921, Involving
the payment of 100,000,000 annually
ixm&tr! ssafe
again is effective, not mentioning
the overdue payments which would
bring Germany's present indebted
ness to Great Britain Alone to a
total of 158,000,000.
Should no agreement be reached
in Paris by January 15 and should
Premier Poincare give the word for
his troops to escort French customs
officials and engineers Into the
Ruhr district, Great Britain would
not. be likely to protest against this
action, but, it is thought, would re
tire to the position of isolation she
occupied a cenury ago and prepare
as best she could to combat the
chaotic economic conditions on the
continent, "which she believes would
be certain to follow any coercive
action against Germany.
British Officials Insistent.
At the same time British officials
are as insistent as the French that
the entente will not be endangered,
even should worst come to worst in
Paris, for It is stated that the two
governments realize. that tho bonds
which hold their peoples together
are not based upon the technicali
ties of reparations, but upon their
common suffering in the common
cause during the great war.
After the fighting ended in 1918,
It waa the habit of speakers
throughout Great Britain to picture
these common allied bonds by ref
erences to the thousands of English
graves In France.
This favorite illustration of allied
relations has now progressed an
other step and, as Mr. i Bonar Law
told the house of commons during
his reparations speech on December
14, the war memorials which feature
the village commons and the streets
of towns and cities throughout the
empire are perpetual reminders of
that English - French friendship
which must endure. ,
Proposals Not to Be Made to Al
lies Unless Solicited.
BERLIN, Dec. 30. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Germany's new rep
arations proposals are being held In
readiness-, awaiting summons from
Paris, which up to a late hour today
had not arrived; nor had it been
even formally suggested that such
proposals would be welcomed by the
allied premiers when they gather
for their reparations discussions
Official quarters indicated tonight
thp.t, although the government was
holding Karl Bergmann, the finan
cial expert, ready for an immediate
trip to Paris, Chancellor Cuno would
not impose, his programme on the
conference unsolicited. The propos
als are the outcome of three weeks'
confidential consultations ending
late FridaV between the government
and industrial leaders. The indus
trialists pledged4 their support, al
though the programme is under
stood to have impressed them as ex
ceeding Germany's present economic
The most rigid secrecy has been
observed in regard to the details for
fear the proposals might be sabo
taged in advance, as it was put in
official quarters. Gossip in politi
cal circles is that the programme
will indicate the maximum of Ger
many's capacity, although payment
of the ultimate sum specified will
be made contingent on a foreign
loan, the interest payments and
amortization to be guaranteed by
the German industrial .financial and
commercial world.
Popular guesses as to the amount
of Germany's offer range from 20,
000,000,000 to 50,000,000,000 marks,
contingent, upon certain reserva
tions relative to the penalties here
tofore Imposed, including continu
ance of occupation of Rhine terri
tory. It is understood the' programme
will strive to bring the whole prob
lem of reparations to a final head
and is capable of being put into ac
tion immediately.
Germany Held Evading Payment.
PARIS, Dec. 30. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) France has made an
intensive study of the reparations
question for the last four years,
and is convinced that Germany does
not want to restore her financial
stability if such a step means pay
ment in full of a reasonable war
indemnity. Such is the authoritative,
though unofficial, comment on the
speech of the American secretary of
state at New Haven last night.

Government Attacks Appeal
of Foreign Ship Lines.
Brief Insists on Right to Prevent
Americans From Carrying In
toxicants Even as Stores.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 30.
The federal government, challenging
the jurisdiction of the supreme court
to consider the appeals brought by
foreign steamship companies from
the prohibition ruling of Judge
Hand at New York and insisting
that the authority of congress ex
tends to control over Intoxicating
liquors on American ships on the
high seas; today filed with the court
two briefs which will be used as the
basis for its arguments next week
when the appeals are reached.
With regard to the proceedings
instituted by the foreign lines, the
government declared it had not con
sented to. be sued and that suit
against it could not be sustained
without its consent. It also ques
tioned the right of the foreign com
panies to bring appeals, insisting
that they had other remedies at law
open to them, and had not presented
a cause for action.
Sea Stores Not Exempt.
The appeal of the American lines
were not challenged on the ground
of Jurisdiction, but the government
insisted if congress could prohibit
American ships from including in
toxicating liquors in their cargoes, it
could also prohibit them from hav
ing such liquor in the sea stores for
use by passengers while on the high
seas. There Is no distinction in law
between the cargo and sea -stores,
the brief held, so far as exercise of
authority by the United States is
In its brief dealing with foreign
ships, the government declared that
any difficulty the" foreign steamship
companies might experience in ob
taining adequate crews by the bar
ring of intoxicating liquors In Amer
ican ports could be readily obviated
by the payment of higher wages. It
was Insisted thatN the prohibition
against bringing liquor within the
territorial Jurisdiction of the United
States deprives the companies of no
rights under existing treaties.
.Smuggling Opening Seen.
If the position of the foreign
steamships was correct, the govern
ment asserted, it would mean that
any ship could carry liquor within
the territorial waters of the United
States. A large and profitable busi
ness has been carried on by ves
sels of foreign register bringing
liquor into the country contrary to
law, the government asserted, charg
ing that former rulings of the treas
ury department had actually been
used as a cloak for smuggling.
Should the foreign steamships win
their contention there would be a
great increase of these operations,
the brief added.
The International merchant ma
rine would be materially injured,
the government stated, should the
foreign ships be permitted to bring
liquor into this country and thus
continue their sales on the high
seas while the American ships are
