budget must balance, the statement
Insisted, or there would be a rapid
increase In the floating debt and eon
sequent inflation that would neutral
ize her capacity to pay.
Assuming that Germany's ability to
pay is used as a basis, the statement
asked that reparation obligations be
expressed in annuities the minimum
of which would be fixed, and the ob
ligation to pay such annuities limit
ed to thirty years.
Request also was made that the
allies fix the maximum sum due for
reparation, after payment of which
Germany would be free from any ob
ligations. ' '.: Allies Must Help ,: .
As the" economic development " of
the next thirty years cannot be fore-
tow, the statement asserted a Dlan
must be worked out by which allied
governments Would participate In the
improvement of financial .and eco
nomic conditions in Germany.
Experts from allied nations and
Germany should meet as soon as pos
sible, the statement said, to fix the
amounts of the annuities to be paid
and to pass on the securities- to- be
demanded. Germany's sovereignty in

Conference committees appointed
yesterday by the labor convention

Bolshevism Gets Cheers .
Every reference to Russia, and to
Ireland, too, was applauded with a
will, and when John Fitzpatrick, tho
labor keynoter, praised the Russian
revolution, three cheers for soviet
Russia were called for and given.
The applause for Ireland and the
Sinn Fein appeared to be more a
tribute to the Irish themselves than
an expression of favor for an Irish
freedom plank, for there is a strong
undercurrent of opinion in both con
ventions against Inserting any plat
form planks dealing with foreign re
lations. The forty eighters in their
mail referendum have already gone
on record as against platform planks
on Irish, Russian and Mexican ques
tions. Irish Get Hearing
The republican and democratic con
ventions , their platforms and their
nominees, were assailed by nearly
John Fitzpatrick , denounced the
platforms as "a denial of everything
that the American people have de
manded and spoken for."
The committee of 48 platform com
mittee granted a hearing to the four
candidates of Irish freedom today.
Sitting late last night, the commit
tees in conference over the amalga
mation proposals found the selec
tion of a name for their new politic
al party to be more than a minor
problem. Combinations npon the
word "labor" were in disfavor among
the committee of 48 representatives.
