By Clarence Daboe
Tokio,- Nov. 3. (U. P.) Lord North-'
cliffe, ;am,ous British, publisher, advo
cated full publicity for the sessions of
the Washington conference "on limitation
of armaments here today, addressing a
dinner given him by newspaper pub
lishers. Later in an exclusive Interview with
the United Press he declared the Anglo-Japanese
alliance had "outlived its
usefulness," and that sentiment is
againgt its continuance, He then
touched on the Irish question, declaring
that if De Valera represents the ma
jority2 opinion in Ireland, then Ireland
is "asking for-trouble."
"Whether the Washington conference
means peace or ultimately war," Lord
Northcliffe declared, addressing the
dinner given in his honor, "depends
greatly en whether it holds secret or
open sessions.
"It is of exceeding importance to the
world's welfare that the fullest publicity
be given."
There is no solution of the Pacific
problems, he said, which is not' based
on Anglo-American friendships For
that reason. Lord Northcliffe told his
hearers, the Anglo-Japanese alliance is
the dominating factor in preventing a
settlement of Pacific problems because
It places the United States definitely
out of consideration. a -.:
Elaborating his views later in an in

The Georgian reiterated his charges
and declared that he could substantiate
every word that he uttered.
Watson presented a newspaper which

that it be printed in the Congressional
Watson then sent to the desk a letter
from an ex-fervice man in Philadelphia,
which stated that he had a photograph
of a scaffold upon which two negro sol
diers were hanged in Prance. .
The writer stated that the soldiers en
camped nearby, had been invited to at
tend the hanging.
Senator Moses (R N. H.) objected to
Senator Watson introducing two photo
graphs he had said he had Just received
from one of his correspondents, on he
alleged would show "an American - sol
dier dying on the gallows"; the other
he claimed was "another American sol
dier being prepared for death."
"I consider the objection of the senator
from New Hampshire a very cowardly
one." Watson shouted.
"I - demand that he apologize to me
for- the insulting attitude he has as
