St. Germain, June 2. The peace treaty was handed
to the Austrian delegates at 12:29 p. m. today.

Premier Clenieneouu, la hit Instruc
tions to the Austrian delegate iuformed
them that no oral discussion would b
allowed, and that all written observa
tions must be submitted within a maxi
mum of 15 duyi.
The document was reported to be a
mere skeleton of the treaty, with finan
cial, economic, repartition!, military and
boundary clauses either wholly or par
tially lacking. The complete sections
consist principally of political aud ter
ritorial clauses, together with the lea
gue of nations covenant, which is iden;
ticttl with that iu the Germany treaty,

Chancellor Rentier arose aud replied
in French. While he was speaking a
glass case containing relies of the stone

tke former Austrollungnry empire
should share in the responsibilities and
cost of the war. Describing conditions
in Austria, he said:

Herbert Hoover have we Avoided abso

Following translation of Rentier's
speech into English aud Italian, Cieiuen
cefiu asked if the Austrian had an;
mure to stay.
They replied ia the negative.
"We trust in your sense of justice
aud practical spirit not to demand that
we be crushed," mi id Bonner. "We are
disposed to recoguize our own responsi
bilities and aecept our share in propor
tion with the other great powers.
"Our revolution was pacific and with
out military actiou. It was simply a so
cial revolution, as peaceful and reason
able as possible and we will not depart

iienner pointed out that the new Aus
trian republic, which is aa outgrowth of
the old Austrian monarchy, never do
tkred war agai.st any of the present
allies. Evidently residing that he
might have no future opportunity to
present Austria's claims, verbally, he
took advantage of tl.e occasion to read
a lengthy typewritten address setting
forth her clainis for clemency.

morning dress, while most of the alllea
representatives woro business suits.
Mrsi Diaz, wife of the Itulinn general,
was the only woman present.
The meetiuij adjourned at 1:14 p. m.
While the treaty indicates generully
the territory which Austria loses, the
precise boundm-ics will be fixed, later
either by f.ie alliea or a mixed commis
sion. It provides that Austria shall re
tain the northern boundary she had in
1911 with the Czechoslovak boundaries
on the northwest, while on the south she
will be assigned the boundaries fixed
under the treaties of 1816, except the
region Ol llarburg and. Ktagenfurt, the
allegiance of which will be decided by
plebiscite. The treaty holds that the
recent plebiscite in Voralberg, whese
the population voted to join Switzerland
is invalid and provides that Voralberg
' shall remain with Austria and pay her
portion of the Austrian war debts and

Laredo, Texas, June S. The union of

northern Mexico was completed in a
meeting this wows, at Parral, near Tor
reon, according to report received by
Mexican official at Nuevo Laredo,
which practically had been confirmed
Great disappointment is said to exist
among the Camnzinta as a result of
the atato department's action in refus
ing permission for Carranaa forces to

Nuevo Laredo declared, pointing out
that transportation of large Carranza
forces, to Junrez it possibly oaly by
crossing a part of Texas.
It is admitted that, the Carranza
forcea iu Chihuahua, where the Villa
movement is strongest, are badly in
need of reinforcements.
The movement for the union of the
Felicistas, followers of IVlix Iiaz, and
Villittoii stnrted with the death of Gen
eral iBlanquet, eeeond chief of the Fe
licistas, who was killed supposedly by
federal troops near Vera CAirz some
weeks ago. The Feliciras realized at
that time, it ia caid, thpy, lacked pow
er to start a success a I movement alone,
and immediately sent ermewnries to Vil
la, with the resulting I'Srral eonfer
otice, where General Felipe Amgcles
was named provisional president and
the 'bandit Villa his seerotary of war.
