Berlin.--It was officia'.ly announced here that the ordinance of January 13. suspending deliveries in kind on reparations to France and Belgium, had been annulled. Paris.--The news from Berlin that the German government had finally withdrawn the ordinance suspending deliveries in kind to France aria Belgium on reparation accounts ,,,as received with satisfaction in French official circles. Parls.--Premier Poincare in his peech at Ailly will define the condi- tions which Germany must fulfill fore France enters into reparation negotiations with her and before the effective cessation of passive resist- ance in the Ruhr will be recognized, It was learned In semi-official quar- ters close to the government. The first of these conditions isthat work in the occupied territory ,be put on a pre)ccupatlon basis. The sec- ond is that deliveries in kind be re- sumed. London.The feeling in Berlin po- litical circles generally, as outlined in a Rester dispatch from the Get- .man capital, is nowise optimistic con- cerning 0e prospect of a successful agreement with FranCe on repara- t.ions. A strong suspicion prevttLts, the dispatch, that the French are going to prove more un- compromising and will make still fur. ther impossible demands. Meanwhile the whole country Is ae- scribed as tranquil, including Bavaria and its capital, Munich, where Dr. Von Kahr is showing his zeal as dictator by having the bui ding of rae Munich Post searched for arms, wRh zne as- sistance of armored cars In case ot resistance. Forty rifle= and two ma- chine guns, apparentl intended for mm incase of attack ,by Hittler's bands, were seized. Sfrangely enough, Hittler himself watched the raid from an automobile, and this aroused the suspicion that he was responsible for it.

The farmer-senator spoke befor Progressive League forum in Carne gie Hall He characterized the federal re serve board as black with the crtm{ of deflation perpetrated against 9 per cen of the people on behalf el the financial two per cent. Criticlze tle Agricultural Department as being 'loaded up with meat packers, cot- ton speculators, grain dealers and Standard Oil educators," opposed government ownership of the rail- roads until there was more public in. terest to watch non-political manage- ment, and discussed foreign policies whic,% he felt were being used by the major political parties to distra attention from "bad domestic poll.

Recognition of the Ru#slan soviet government as a trade measure was recommended by Senator Johnson who said he believed peace could ,be promoted by well-conceived treaties although he doubted the wisdom o! egagtng in "ernsades to make the world safe for demoergcy." He insist ed, however, that America not b hound to eaxry on war for anothez nation. He said foreign conditions had been blamed falsdy as the principal faeto in bad business condition. hereas 9 per cent of. American business was done in America.

LEAGUE FLItURE BEI.IEVE BONUS; RESTS WITHU S BILL WILL PASS, ,,,o,,,o-oo" ASSEMBLY'8 PRESIDENT BEGS U. 8. TO JOIN GREAT WORK. HOPFUL AS SESSION ENDS Even If America Declines to Become a Member, "She Cannot With- hold Her Aid," Declare8 Dr. Torrlente. Oeneva.After a month's sessmn, during which the period of the Greco- Italian crisis had been passed through to a final solution of the difffculy, the fourh, assenbly of the League ot Ntions adjourned Saturday in an at- mosphere of satisfaction among the delegates for the achievements of the session and firm hope in greater ccomplishmente for the future. It was made entirely clear -by the speakers at the final session that the hoPe of the future was pinned largely on coliaboration, by the United States whenever it could be obtained, wib the constructive plans of the league, even if the day never should come when America will Oe actually found among the members. Dr. Cosine de la Torriente, of Cuba, presi(ent of the assembly, in an elo- quent valedictory address took Amer- ica and placed her in definite form before the delegates, declaring mat her aid was vastly in, portent for the future of mankind. Spontaneous a)plause rang through- out the great auditorium as Dr. Tor- rlente spoke thus of te United States, and it broke out anew wnen the Cuban statesman, aiming to snow that he did not despair of eventual American adherence, gae voice to thl eentimevt: "I hope that once an agreement is reached regarding the form and man- ner of their eo-operaLion ta our work, we shall be able to welcome th reIP resentatives of that great American nation which gave birth to Washing- ton, Lincoln, Wilson and Harding that People Which represents o pow- erful a mo,-al and material force in the world and w,hieh or that 'ery reason cannot, although it has not ratified the covenant, refus e the leaKue Its valuable assistance.

WARN OF BUSINESS DRIVE Legionnaires Believe Adjusted Com- per]satlon Will Paas House 8 to 1, and By 18 Vote= In the Senate. Washington.--The legislative com- mittee of the American Legion will report to the legion convention in San Francisco next month he paw sage of adjusted compensati(legis- lation during the next session:he congress is "absolutely certain."--" nThe report will also warn against a new drive by business against bhe soldier bonus, on the supposition it will pre- vent a tax reduction. After surveying the membership of both houses of congress the legon committee has concluded the legisla- tion will pass the house by a vote of 7 or 8 to 1 and the senate with 15 votes to spare. Enough favorable votes are anticipated to adopt ao measure over a veto. "The November elections," says the report. "held during bhe recess, clearly demonstrated the resentment of the voters at the failure of the sen- ate to override the presidential veto and Senators Calder of New York, Dupont of Delaware, France of Mary. land and Frellnghuyse of New Jer- sey, all of whom voted to sustain the veto, were repudiated at the Polls by their own states. Sweeping changes were also made in the house of repre- sentatives, 1'0 new members being elected to the lower house, wich in addition now contain= seven vacan- cies." The committee declared there never has been a question bout the over- whelming desire of the house to pus the bill and stated 50 of tle 74 hold- over senators are favorable. Of the 21 new senators, 18 are listed for the legislation irrespective of a veto., "The general opposition to the ad- justed compensation measure," the committee stated, "is being conduct- ed by be United States Chamtr of Commerce. the National AsSoclauon of Manufacturers and the National Industrial Conference Board, orffani- rations composed of the big business interests of the country, and It would be an interesting study after their perusal of their various allied and af- filiated associations to ascertain to ( 1923.
