were Issued. The llrst says:
•The President of the United States, the premiers -.nil foreign

aeter of this administration, with a
view to protecting the interests of
tho nation and the population.
Later in the day Premier Hughes,
of Australia, who is the exponent
of the extreme view for outright an
nexation of the colonies, conferred
with Colonel House in a further
effort to secure a middle round. In
tho meantime the various British
dominion deleates held a meeting
and conferred with Premier Lloyd
George for the purpose of deter
mining their course.
The result of this meeting was not
made known, but the sentiment in
conference circles is strongly hope
ful that an agreement will be
reached which will preserve the
American plan of a mandate, with
out hampering the power in admin
istering a colony.

1 While this bore on the instructions
to the commission about to start
. | for Poland, yet the main desire of
ijthe council was to hear the Poles
and Czecho-Slavs concerning the
warfare now going on between them
I along the. Milesian frontier. This
I clash between the military forces of
i the two countries is regarded as con
trary to the recent warning given
,b.v the council against the occupa
j tion of territory by force.
The hearings yesterday and the
[departure of 'the commission for
| Poland are expected to put .an end
i to this internal conflict between two
j powers which are represented at the
j conference.

: As yet the peace conference has
I received no formal reply from the
I ltusgian Soviet government regard
! ing the invitation sent to all the
j Russian governments to meet con
! ference representatives at the
j Princes Islands, but the Russian
' committee fn Paris will probably
j make a formal response in a few
| days on bennlf of the various other
I Russian governments.
May Not Sit With Reds
This committee now is consider
ing the proposals but the prospects
| seem to be that it will decline to I
i sit in conference with any repre- 1
j sentatives of the Bolsheviki. The ex-,
I pected declination, however, will be'
| couched in courteous language andl
will embody a lengthy explanation!
[of the committee's reasons for de-!
| clining.

confer with the committee.
British labor Pleased
Tlie Britisli labor delegates in
Paris, who to-day completed a plan
| for an international labor bureau to
j be laid before the peace conference
and forwarded it to London for con
| sideration by the employers are
j greatly pleased at the speed with;
| which they were able to complete!
; the draft. The consultation between'
j the iaborites concerning tlie plan
j lasted only two and one-half days, at
| the end of which they had reached
; a complete agreement.
Throuhout the discussions the em
ployers in England were kept ad
vised of the proceedings. Arrange
ments ha,d been made to continue
the consultations betwee ntlie labor
ites and the employers after the plan
is presented to the conference.
Tlie Matter of Indemnities
Tlie peace conference has settled
j one important point with regard to
J the indemnity question, the Paris
I correspondent of the London Even
j ing Standara says he has reasons for
j reporting. The conference, he de
j clares, has eliminated any intention
: of calling on Germany and her as
j sociates to pay tlie Allied countries
! the cost of the war, or to impose
| heavy indemnities on the enemy
Treaties in Danger
In a la e edition, the London
I Daily Mail prints a report from Its
I correspondent In Paris to the effect
j thai Great Britain's decision re
| gurding the treaties with Japan rel
j ativc to tlie islands In the Northern
! Pacific and with the Arabs regard -
i ing Syria and the understanding
with France as to the future status
of ilie Kamerun involves the admls
[ sion that they must be arbitrarily
j modified, if not torn up.
"The Japanese delegates are an
• gry and alarmed and declare their
[ unalterable determination to claim
• the islands, as promised," the cor-
I respondent says, and adds: ' These
! islands are really the crux of the
I whole situation."
"The Australians," the correspon
dent continues, "believe President
Wilson's firm stand In this matter
is due to his fear that Japanese oc
cupation of the islands would im
pair his prestige in the United States
and that he fears to meet a hostile
congress in March if he agrees to
the absolute retention of the islands
by Japan.
"Italian delegates frankly avow
their claims to Fiume and insist that
the promise of part of the .Dalma
tian coast stipulated in the pact of
London must be made good. They
declare that President Wilson's atti
tude regarding Fiume derectly con
tradicts his declaration of the rights
of peoples outlined in his 'fourteen
points.' "

Makes Another Demand For
Withdrawal of Troops in
Eastern Country
Associated Press
Washington, Jan. 30.. Another
demand for immediate withdrawal
of American troops from Russia wus
made in tlie Senate to-day by Sen
ator Johnson, of California, in an ad
dress vigorously criticising the
Russian course of the United States
and allies.
Military activities in Russia were
denounced by Senator Johnson as
"wicked and useless" and a "crimin
al policy of intervention" which had
helped hold the Bolsheviki in power,
while starving the Russian people.
Declaring again that. America has
no policy in Russia, Senator John
son added:
"We have engaged in a miserable
misadventure, stultifying our profes
sions (of friendship for the Rus
sians) and setting at naught our
promises * * * suffer tlie odium and
infamy of undeclared warfare."
Senator Johnson spoke in jachalf
of his resolution proposing that the
Senate declare itself in favor of re
calling the American expeditionary
force in Russia. He also criticised
Krylenko Is Held
Captive in Russia
Hwski*r KimcNiro,
Ensign Krylenko. fbrmer com
mander of the Bolshevik army, has

commander of the anti-Bolshevik
forces, according to a dispatch from
Copenhagen. Reports say that
Krylenko was captured while try
ing to get ihsi,de Krasnoff's camp on
a spying mission.

Differs Willi Lodge
.Senator Johnson said he would
not subscribe to the sentiment re
cently expressed by Senator Lodge
in favor of the use of American
troops to aid in setting up and main-1
taining independent countries :nl
"I would not shed the blood of |
American boys in the internal dis-i
turbunces of Esthonia, Livonia, etc.," '
lie said. "I will not concede that it'
is the duty of the republic to main
lain order in a Jugo-Slav or Czecho.
Slav state."
Discussing the league of nations,
Senator Johnson saui:
"If the President can return *
* * with a league of nations!
which does not relinquish • our sov
ereignty and which in realty will be
a preventive of future wars, I shall
welcome most gladly and eiAliii
stastically this great accomplish
Wilson's Altruism
The Senator suggested that the
European nations, some by secret
treaties which would be enforced
wet-e likely to thwart the altruistic
purposes expressed by President
Wilson in his fourteen principles.
The first point, for open diplomacy
he declared, had-been largely ignor
ed, while ihe second point, regard
ing freedom of the seas, '"has been
lost for a considerable period now
in historical mystery and' rests in
oblivion with the unreali2ed dreams
of the Akound of Swat."
The third, fourth and fifth points
of the President on removal' of
economic barriers, reduction of
armaments and impartial adjust
ment of colonial claims, he said,
apparently ligve been submerged ®n
weightier questions and no longer
agitate the overburdened minds of
Secret Treaties in the Wirv
Regarding territorial adjustments
Senator Johnson said: "The difficulty
of the President in interpreting hi's
peace points • • • j B tli.at long
ago England, France and Italy
reached their conclusions and the
President is up against the con
tracts, signed, sealed and delivered,
and in the pockets of the allies"
If the President could cause these
secret treaties to be disregarded and
compel the altruistic peace of which
he has so often spoken," said Sen
ator Johnson, "it would be the great
est achievement of any statesman of
any time."
Turning to rfussla again. Senator
Johnson said the principle of self
determination had "fallen by the
wayside." He recalled questions pre
sented to the association nations last
March by the Soviet government and
refusal of the American government
or the Allies to give an answer. The
United States government, lie assert
ed, induced New York Socialists and
anarchists to send messages to Een- '
ine and Trotzk.v. •
After citing President Wilson's,
addresses and other documents re
garding Russia, he added:
Calls Policy Vacillating
"Weak and vacillating and stupid I
has been our policy with Russia. We I
solemnly promised we would not in
tervene and then, prating of our love
for the Russian people, we did inter-'
jtene. Prating übout guarding stores J
at Archangel, we advanced 103 miles j
from that pbrt, burned little Russian i
towns and upset little Soviet gov- !
ernments. 11l the name of protecting :
military supplies . * * we shot l
down Russian peasants and our boys
are shot down by-them • • •
"If it had not been for this- crim
inal policy of intervention Dcnine
and Trotsky would have fallen long
ago, and the Bolsheviki would have
been at an end. There is a heavy
reckoning some day for those re
sponsible for this wicked and use
less course in Russia.
Tlie State Department's statement
that Americans are in Russia to
protect military stores* the senator
said, "was to fool the people Into
believing American bayonets were
necessary to protect Archangel
stores from the Germans" and that
the. suggestion is "the veriest kind
of pretense."
Disclaiming sympathy with Bol
shevism or belief that it is likely
to find root in America, Senator
Johnson said he Expected "the ser
vile pait of the press" would apply
the term bolshevik to him.
''During the war," lie said, "it
became fashionable to call 'ajl the
disagreed with any governmental
policy pro-German. Now x x x
any man who will not accept the
wrongful edict of entrenched power
| is by that token a Bolshevik."
j Before Senator Johnson delivered
| his address, the Senate Foreign Be-
J lations Committee met but took no
| action on his resolution calling fdr
! official announcement to American
i purposes in Russia, nor on that of

Statue by Rodin, Stolen by Hun Invaders,
Found by French Soldiers Seeking Mines
. .I**.. ' 1
Germany will not liave to pay for one stolen work of art. It is i
statue by Rodin which French soldiers are seen here removing fron
a hole they dug while trying to locate mines planted by the Huns un
tier the roadways as they retreated. The statue was unearthed near
Douai. This, the French consider, is convincing evidence of the sys
teinalic despoiling and looting of art treasures by German officers.
Federal Administration Went!
Out of Existence
Philadelphia, jan. SO.t-Price ten
denotes continue toward lower levels'
in all food products. While there i
was no phenomenal drop in the re-j
tail price of butter and eggs yes- |
terday, nevertheless Iho shading;
which has marked the market for
the past ten days continued.
Dealers late yesterday afternoon!
intimated that an effort will be made
to hold the market, but admitted
that it would probably -prove futile
as the conditions all indicate a fall
ing tendency. Vegetables yesterday
began to show the effect of the de- i
dine in 1 lie butter, egg and poultry
lines. Although there wefe no sharp!
breaks, many of the retail stores
were offering special inducements to j
housewives. , j
Poultry shipments are reported to
be falling off. This is due to the farm
ers holding up liens and pullets for!
the spring lay. Prime fowl was in!
the market selling at fair prices, j
Increasing shipments of fruit were i
reported. Much of the supply camel
from the west. California fruits, it ■
is said, are increasing in quantity,]
while southern shipments are heav
ier. Tropical fruils are arriving and
with, them conies the assurance thai
within the immediate future they
will be materially increased. Dealers
report a growing demand with prices
averaging fair.
Market factors agree that the eon
j ditions arc favoring the consumers
j and are disposed to accept the slt
j uation as the best to be expected fol
j lowing the ending of the war with
I tendencies toward lower prices rap
| idly developing.
To-day the Federal Food Admin
j istration practically goes out of ex
