Divergence of Views Among
Delegations Considered
Fundamental Obstacle to
Present Mongolian. Courts
' May Make Immediate
Changes Impossible
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. (By
the Associated Press.) The Far
Eastern negotiations, complicated
by a disagreement over the mean
ing of the four general principles
adopted, will again become the
live issue of the armament con
ference when it resumes work to
morrow. How acute the divergence ol
view over application of the four
principles might become was
problematical tonight, but the
Chinese seemed to regard it as a
fundamental obstacle to a com
plete agreement regarding China.
Chinese 3tay Quit
Some Chinese officials even
went so far as to say there would
be nothing left for them but
withdrawal from the conference
should an interpretation advanced
in British quarters receive full
approval of the powers.
The opinion held with apparent
unanimity by all the delegates
concerned, however, was that the
issue would be so handled as to
preclude such an impasse at the
present time. It was pointed out
that the views to which the Chin
ese took offense were delineated
by a British spokesman outside
the conference and so far have
not had the formal endorsement
even of the Pritish delegation.
These views wf;re briefly that the
open door policy defined by the
four principles included Chinese
acceptance of the consortium and
the pooling of the operation of
railway concessions, a combina
toin which the Chinese" declare
would mean virtual "internation
alization" of China.
Chinese Reticent
It was uncertain tonight wheth
er the subject would come before
the nine delegations meeting to
morrow as a committee of the
whole on the Far East. For their
part, the Chinese w:re said to feel
they could not raise the point
with propriety because views at
tributed to the British never had
been officially before the Far
East committee. Apparently, a
somewhat similar position was
taken by the other delegations,
and so it appeared possible that
the disagreement might await
further development until discus
sions bring it into prominence.
The specific subject selected for
discussion tomorrow is China's
request for abolition of the sys
tem of "extra territoriality" un
der which the foreign powers have
set nn their own courts within
China to .handle cases iu which J
their respective nationajs are in
volved. All nations reresented
have indicated their "sympathetic
interest" in the Chinese request,
although it has been apparent
that even some Chinese delegates
do not believe the present con
dition of the Chinese courts would
make the change immediately
.aval Experts Procress
Amone some delegates there
was a belief that the cases .of
Shantung and South Manchuria
might also be reached tomorrow,
bringing the delegates face to face
with some of the most compli
cated questions of the negotia
tions. Meantime, naval experts will
continue work on details of the
American reduction plan and the
land armament negotiations will
wait for the more pressing topic?
to be disposed of. Sub-committees
will be organized to begin in
vestigation of such collateral is
sues as airplanes, poison gas and
the rules of warfare, but if a com
prehensive plan for land arma
ment limitation is to be worked
out. it will be in a later stage.
It is held that as a sovereign
nation China now has the same
power to enter into such arrange
ments in the future.

SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 24. Bat Leahy, 65, proprietor
of a rooming house here, tonight shot ant! killed Mrs. Anna

In delivering the union Thanks
giving sermon yesterday morning

church, the Rev. W. T. Milliken
