New Demands of Russian Sov
iet Delegates Threaten
Genoa. The Genoa conference is
drifting toward the rocks Again.
Whether it can be kept from wreck
age depends on the possibility of ad
justing the new demands of the Rus
sian soviet delegates with the position
of the allied governments, who declare
they will stand steadfastly by the reso
lutions adopted at Cannes, on which
the conference is founded.
The situation is made more critical
by the French premier's frank warn
ing in his address at Rar-le-I)uc that
France will withdraw from the con
ference if she is unable to See that
the ideas expressed by the French
cabinet before parliament can triumph.
These French practical demands in
clude maintenance of the war repara
tions figures, disbarment of all dis
armament discussions and no chang
ing of the existing treaties at Genoa.
In addition, France insists on rigid
adherence to the Cannes resolutions
which call for the payment of Russia's
pre-war debts and the restitution by
the soviet of foreigners' property in
The conference of experts on the
Russian question broke up and ad
journed sine die because the experts
representing the powers found the
Russians' new set of proposals abso
lutely in contradiction to the soviet
note accepting the allies' terms as a
basis for future deliberations.
Despite the serious outlook, the
heads of the various delegations have
not abandoned all hope.

It has been finally decided to lo
cate the O-W Highway In Gilliam
county down Willow Creek, along
the fool of the bluffs. The original
survey thru the creek bottom cut
up several alfalfa fields, making the
right-of-way costly to the county. Re
locating the tome near the bluffs
laves HiL cost to the county, as the
commission so located it with the
understanding that all claims for
right-of-way damages be waived.
This probably disposes of the pro
, to locate the O-W highway
from Rhea siding to a point on the
John Day highway south of Arlinc

appears to be satisfactory to nil con

oi The Dalles,
Senator R. N. Stanfield In an In
terview in Poise predicts that
ss will pass the soldier bonus bill
and that an adequate tariff relief
unsure will be sent to President
Harding. He made it clear that the
agricultural industry should he given
greater consideration from the War
finance corporation and that he in
tendfi to make a thorough investl-
,ii ion of this matter when he re
tUrns to Washington to aee if It can-
ioI be brought about.
"1 realize that considerable Inter
est is evident in Idaho and in Heine,
which is the center of the sheep In
dustry in the interniountain country,
in the tariff measure" Bald Senator
Stanfield when interviewed.
" The present bill as returned by
the finance committee provides for a
:t: cents per pound tariff on wool.
That wool is commonly known as
Bcoured, but In reality is on the
pure wool content. The statement
seems io have been circulated widely
by, 1 might say, unscrupulous ntanu
facturera, that it is something more
than the Payne-Altlrich bill and some
thing less than the emergency tariff.
Through their spread of this prop
aganda they hope to create sentiment
against the bill to its harm. The
emergency act provided for a tariff at
15 cents a pound on greased wool,
Which means $15 a hundred poundn,
since approximately 40 per cent of
he greased wool is grease and dirt,
and not wool. Importers are paying
115 on til) pounds of real wool or at
i lie rate of approximately 26 cents a
lOUnd. With the new tariff fixed at
33 cents a pound It can be seen that
I will be in reality approximately 8
:enta higher than the emergency tar
iff on clean wool.
"The present bill Is a little higher
than i be emergency bill and double
I bat of Hie Payne Aldrlch bill. It Is
in honest bill and will do much when
l is put into effect. As near as we
an Judge it will about even up the
inference between the cost of raising
he wool here In order to compete
.villi foreign exportatlons.
"As to the soldier bonus measure I
irmly believe that It will be passed
oon. At Hie recent Republican Cau
IUS there was a decision of 28 In
favor of it to nine SgStBSl, I'or this
reason as well as numerous others,
I believe the bill will be passed and
1 think the President will sign it. He
will sign because he bellevco In the
