RERUN, Mar. 27. The Associated
Press has high authority for saying
that the Government of the United
States has been sounding Germany as
to how 'far the latter country would go
toward maintaining th4 "open door In
China,:- " ; '.-' - ;'
"The purpos of th Inquiry was to
learn whether Germany, In any event,
would take a resolute stand for equal
trade opportunities. The Inquiry re
sulted In obtaining .from the very head
of the German Empire the impression
that Germany, while willing to 'take
an identical attitude with, the other

Washington, March 27. It Is said
that the answer of the State Depart
ment to the Richardson, resolution di
recting an investigation of the charges
made in connection with the Dan ten
West Indies treaty, will disclose the
fact that,. according to the record, the
t'nlted Ktate Government ha refused
to have anything. to do with any per
sons as party to the treaty who were
not directly connected with the Danish
Government., The Department ajso
placed n -fecord Its determination to
pay no commission to'" any person on
account of a session of the islands., It
will be pointed out that our Govern
ment has no right to dictate to the
Drfnlsh Government as to what It
should do in the rmit ter Of paying-com

adopted. Quarle vigorously denounc
ed the oleomargarine industry as at
present conducted, as a fraud, and In-,
stated that in the interest of the whole
American people the pending bill ought
to be enacted Into law. Taking advan
tage of the latitude of debate1 afforded
by the Senate .rule, Patterson sharply
criticised the methods by which Gen

violated the articles of civilised war
