Berlin.--Breaking a preceden - by discussing affairs of state intormal!y during adjournment of the Reich- stag Chancellor Stresemann told tt:e German Industrial Commerce Club iz ad address that the German pople were unanimously against any cn,n, in the status of the tthineian0 that a temporarT transfer of tbe railread and collieries in the Ruhr and Rhine- land cannot be considered t)ut that France would be able to secure a set- tlement on the basis or: productive guaranties after granting arc, or- torture. The speech bore all the earmarks of genuine desire to find a senna basis for negotiations and had n,]c of th traces of bitterness whicx have characterized many former u- terances concerning a prospective set- tlemenL I Berlin.--The present German gov- ernment stands by the offer made by the recent Cuno government for the meeting of Germany&apos;s reparations ob- ligations, Chancellor Stresemann told the German Industrial Commerce Club in addressing it. "For the liberation of German soil, for the maintenance of our sovereign- ty and for the consolidation of our situation." the chancellor declared, "it would not be too great a sacrifice to offer part of the German economic system s a productive pledge for car- rying out Germany's reparatio'as ob- ligations." "If the French government sincere- ly desires to receive positive pledges for German deliveries after tiae ex- piration of the moratorium we can find a way of reaching an under- standing. But no difficulties must be made between the Rhineland and Ruhr on one hand and the German Reich on the other. "any cannot accept as a basis for the solution of the reparations question even a te/nporary pledging of the Ruhr or a transfer of the Rhineland railways and collieries, or other property in the Rhineland or Ruhr, as suggested by documents 23 and 25 of the FTench yellow book." Chancellor Cuno's reparations offer, made on May 2 last, proposed the payment of a total indemnity of 30,- 000,000,000 gold marks, or $7,500.000.- 000, by Germany, this amount to be paid by 1931 with the aid of interna- tional loans. This offer proved un- acceptable to any of the allies, and in an amendmentory note forwarded June 7 the chancellor proposed a sys- tem of annual payments by Germany of 1.200,000,000 marks, beginning in 1927 If an international loan were not available for immediate capital pay- ments. The number of these annul. ties were left undetermined. As a guarantee for fbe annuities Germany proposed the pledging of the federal railway system, capitaliz- ed at 101000,000,000 marks, while a fur- ther 10,000,000,000 marks would be guaranteed by a gold 5 per cent mort- 'gage on the entire business industry, banking trade, traffic and agriculture of the country. Certain customs and excise duties alo were proposed as pledges. ! This offer has never been fo:'mally acted upon by the allies, but 'ance and Belgium have made it clear that they would enter Into no negotiations with Germany under present condi- tions, at least until she agreed to abandon her passive resistance in the Ruhr. reat Britain drew ,p a tenta- in sugar i tire reply to the German offer, and It to his recent fail-was this proposed reply that was sub- I mitred to the other allies by the BVt- --.._, fish government on" July 21, drawing ff Army Reoord l answers from France and Belgium, to ]Pos- .L _ .

The primar election law is quite severe in its penalties carrying both fine ann Ira. prsonmenL A fine of $500 and six months in Jail. or both, is denounced against violations of the primary else tion law, which are specifically point, ed out by that statute. In a recenl charge to the grand jury at Tyler town, Waltball CounIy, Judge Sln mona is quoted as having reminded the grand jury that election frauds had been perpetrated in the recent primary and asked them not to over look anything that was suspicious of illegal voting and the lavish use of money in many precincts or Walthall Couney, by certain candidates. In his successful ace for the nomination for district attorney in e first Judicial district, Major James M. Finley, of Tupelo, waged his campaign for that office against corrupt primary oleo tions. He was nominated by an ove whelmlng majority and in a published card states he expects to make his promises good in the matter of vig- orous prosecution of those guilty el primary election frauds. He epe- claily stresses the fact that it is uu- lawful to sell or offer to sell one's vote or influence, directly or indi- rectly or to receive pay for his time or expense in working for any candl. date, and that it Is also unlawful for any person to offer money or anything of value to anyone for his vote or in. fluence, or for canvassing or working for or against any candidate. He points out that candidates gullt Ot ,such practice are ineligible to have their name placed on the ticket in the general election, or to held office after he is elected.

(;ANT AID LEGISLATORS HAVE NO PLAN Letter to Senator Gooding Discloses That Mr. Coolidge Has No In- tention of Calling CongresS- men to Wa#hington. Washington.--Congressional action to aid the farmers does not seem ex- I,edient, President Coolidge declared in a letter to Senator Gooding, (Re- publican, Idaho), made public. Senator Gooding, a member of the Senate agricultural bloc had wired the president urging: him to call an extra session of Congress to aid the t farmer, and to consider the coal .it- I nation. Concerning the latter, the I president took occasion to point out I that Congress had already created the United States coal commission to deal with the fuel question, hut his answer on this phase of the telegram was idefintte and not final. The president's letter to Senator Gooding, dated August 14, follows: "Your telegram relative to the ag- ricultural and coal situation has been received. The Congress has mready had before it, the coal problem and has authorized the investigation and report of the commission which has been and ow is, actively engaged in this work and in mediation between the disagreeing elements in tbe an- thracite fleld.. "As you know, the Congress has been engaged during the past two years, oftenHmes in accordance with your own suggestion, in the passage of legislation for the relief of agri- culture. It was one of the first acts of President Itarding and one of his last thoughts. I share with you, a great solicitude for this important in- terest and a great sympathy for any part of It which may be, temporarily I trust in, any distress. It is my earnest desire to afford every possible relief and listen to every possibl,' suggestion. The most experienced legislators with whom I have con- suited have not yet been able to offer any plan for legislative action which seems to be practicable. "Our department of agrlonlture is digesting every plan that is offered for relief tn the hope that some method of procedure may be found which would afford a helpful rem- edy. I can assure you that no ef- fort is being spared in this direction but up to the present time congres- sional action has not seemed ex* Imdient." I Discussion of the agricultural sit. uation was taken up by President Coolidge and members of the farm loan board at the White House when the president was informed that the law by which the board was created is operating satisfactorily. Progress was reported to the president regard- ing the estblishment of the 12 new fntermefliate credit ,ranks set up troughout the country. An optimistic outlook was given the president by the bdard members who told him there would be no difficulty in providing adequate credits for the marketing of crops by use of tha banks. It was made known at the White House that as yet, no practical plan had been presented for further re- lief for agriculture and it wad added that President Coolidge will give con- sideration to no 1)tan that does n0 po.sess constructive qualities and will call no extra session of Congress for additional legislation unless an emergency should make this neces- sary and a ral remed Offered. Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, wlo will have charge ef any proposal that may be made, agrees with the president that price-fixing l.s not the remedy and bus pointed out that rids means has never been successful.

Y.ffrank ecler, t suicide at hlS home with a COOLIDGE AGAINST AIFII00RAFT MEET EUROPE HAS OTHER AFFAIRS European Nations Not Disposed to Discuss Limitation of Aircraft Now--Lodge, However, Ap- proves Legion Plan, Washington.  President Coolidge, the White House unofficially reveal- ed, is not disposed to call an inter- national conference on limltaUon of the building of military aircraft, as proposed by the American egton.. The president, .it was eplained, thinks that a move of this character will be futile at this time. He is in favor of suc limitation, but is mUCh of the opinion that Europe is too se- riously beset by graver difficulties to give heed at this time to a call by America to another international con- ference on the reduc,0n of arma- ment. He has been particularly impressed by the failure of the Washington con- ference to reach an agreement on the limitation of aircraft construction, and doubts that conditions in Europe have changed sufficiently in the short I time tat has elapsed to justify the calling of another conference. Many of the delegates to the Washington conference deemed It useless to liner the construction of military aircraft any way on account ot the case of converting commercial aircraft to mil- itary purposes. Mr. Coolidge Is a'are of the wide disparity between the air forces of the United States and of the European powers and Japan, but he finds atis- faction in the fact ,,t America is setting the proper example by ru- fraining from competitmn with other nations in the building of military airoraft.
