Hltrh Over Coal Total. At the conference this morning the Germans declared that because the allied coal demands w.-re twice what they had expected, the German reparations plan could not be carried out. Germany could not meet the coal deliveries and produce enough to pay the reparations. Premier Mlllerand replied that France would not consent to any such reduction of coal as the Germans asked. The latter replied that they felt no longer bound by the figure formerly fixed. It Is expected that the matter will be settled tomorrow morning. The Allies set the figure both of coal and reparations at twice what the Germans say they can pay. They demand 29.000,000 tons of coal annually and the Germans offer 13,000.000 and ask it,-000.000,000. while the Germans offer And this figure Is baaed on reduction of coal deliveries and the retention of V'pper Silesia. The fact that the Stlcsian plebiscite cannot yet be held Is used as an obstacle to the fixing of the reparations total. At th opening of the session the committee of allied and German experts named to settle the coal question reported that while it waj agreed that th Allies had priority and could set up a committee In Berlin to control the German coal operations. It waa Impossible to agree about the amount. The experts advised investigation of the possibilities of improving food and health conditions of the German minors with a view to Increasing the production. Of. Simons said that while the German reparations plan hung on coal. It waa based on so much coal being allotted to German Industry. With less coal they could pay less. The allied figures being double the German totals meant that one-third of German coal would have to (be turned over. This involved reduction of the supply to Industry from 0 to 40 per cent. Therefore the Germans could not submit their plan. 11. Mlllerand replied that if it was true Oerman industry lacked coal. French industry lacked it even more, and the resaon was that the Germans wantonly destroyed French coal mines In order to bring about that very state of things. Xo modification of Article 233 of the treaty relative to coal could be permitted. The treaty must be fulfilled subject to such modifications as the Allies might be filling to permit. H expressed pained surprise at th Germans withholding the reparations plan they said they would submit today. He suggested it would be best for all concerned that the Allies th Oarman plan before giving a final decision, j Dr. Simons asked for an adjournment to. consult his colleague.

DIES IN NIAGARA, RIDINOIIiBARREL English Barber " Daredevil " Killed in Plunge as Craft Is Broken to Pieces. FAILS ATTHEWATER CURTAIN No Trace of Body Found by Friends Had Many Exploits to His Credit. Special to Thr xfw Yrrk Txmra. NIAGARA FAU.S. July 11. -Charles Stephens, of Bristol. England. waa killed this morning by going over the Horseshoe Palls of Niaeara in a barrel in an effort to emulate th. foata of Ann.' Edson Taylor and 'Bobby" Leach Stephens came to the Canadian side of the river a few days ago and began to study the fall, and river with a view to determining the possibilities of making a successful trip. He expressed the view that the barrel he had brought with him would carry him safely through the upper rapids and over the horseshoe. This morning, about 8 o'clock, he and his party gathered on the Canadian side of the river on the mainland, about midway up the shore opposite Navy Island. He crept into the barrel, which was equipped with apparatus said to have been designed by Prof. Hill, of England, so as to give him an air supply of nbout eight hours. The harness was put over his head and he adjusted the mouthpiece before friends bade him farewell. His manner was confident, and he showed little fear. A motor launch towed him and ids barrel to midstream and tnen down stream as far as it was safe for the craft to go. T.ere the fl:,a fastenings were mad- ve: the manhole, and a rap on the outside of the brre was the signal that told Stephens that he was adrift on the bosom of the Niagara River, only a few hundred fe-t rrr, precipe over which only two persons gone an lived to tel. of It. Horn Hwlftly to Hrlnk. Between the point where the boat abandoned Stephens and the brink, there ar foaming rapids ana also scv'-crai reefs, over which rushes the torrent Ihhl conies down from Lake Erie. Through the rapids and over the reefs the barrel plunged swiftly, rolling two or three times quite differently than did the barrels In which Mrs. Taylor and ' Bobby " Leach made their voyages. To those who understood the river and had witnessed other tripa, this was significant, and there were those by the riverside who felt that Stephens would not survive the trip. On toward the brink the current carried the barrel. Persons on the shore watched intently the approach of the craft with lt. human ' Trelght toward the Jumping off place of the waters. Twenty-six minutes elapsed and during this period the watchers stared in fascination at the moving barrel. It passed through the rapids, and floated quietly through the more quiet water to the horseshoe. A second more and It dropped out of sight. Along the lower river, anxious friends on both banks watched for t k.i to emerge Intact from the foot of the falls, as had the Taylor and Leach barrels years ago. They watcbed In vain, for presently the surging currents of the boiling waters at the bas of the waterfall delivered the barrel In place to the bosom of the lower river. Stephens's body did not uiwir it.r boatmen further down atfeam picked up parts or the barrel to be kept as souvenirs of the tragedy. Stephens's friends on the river ban is were loath to believe that he had failed In his undertaking. They sought out every eddy on both aides of the stream, hoping against hope that th barrel beat might be found, or that the EngJlahman might have been hurled to a safe point by the water in the lower river. Only tonight, as darkness fell, did they abandon hope of seeing Stephen alive. Say Barrel Broke a Becks. Anne Edon Taylor and " Bobby " Leach, both of whom saw the attempted feat, do not think It strange that Stephen gave up his life in the river today, for both of them had long studied the falls and river before they mad their haxarJou trip. Th conclusion of all 1 that Stephens a barrel dropped behind the falling sheet of water Instead of being cast out an front of it as were the other barraia wh!i Yad aafly ahot the falls, and waa Bmashad on th rock at th base th cliff. When Mr. Taylor made her voyage her barrel kept on the out4e edge of the curtain of water and waa visible all th time, striking the water i the lower river In full view of the crowds, then drifting over to aa eddy on th Canadian aid, where he - waa reacaad.

C0iinTEB0F8 AND LABOR PARTY MOVE TO UNITE Conference Committees Unanimously Recommend Organic Union at Chicago. , HEARST GROUP IN PARLEY La Follette Favored by All Three Parties as Candidate for President. LABOR CONVENTION OPENS Fitzpatrick Cheered for Praise of Soviets and Attack en Amir-lean System. Special to Th- .Vetr York Time. CHICAGO. July 11 -Amalgamation of the Committee of Forty-eight and th Labor Party appeared almost certain late tonight, when at the close of a conference between committees of the two group . aigned statement was la-sued by J. a. ,'. Hopkins, Executive Chairman for the committee, and Tos-can Bennett for the Labor men. Baying the two committees had agreed unanimously on getting together. The statement, said that 'three resolutions had been adopted unanimously. Tha first recommended amalgamation, the second advised the appointment of uh-crmmlttecs of five of the aTolitlcal Procudure Committee of the Forty-eighters and the Conference Committee of the Iabor men 10 agree on the ma-hlnery of getting together, and the third called for sub-committees of five from the Platform Committees of both to spree on a platform. The agreement txtween the two committees, which, according to all appearances, will be ratified by both conventions, resulted from the appointment of ten Westerners of either radical affiliations or radical inclinations to the Conference Committee of the Forty-elghters after tho committee as originally appointed by the Executive Committee, composed of comparatively conservative Easterners like Hopkin and Allen Mc-Curdy. had becn unable to agree with Lhe Labor men. From all arpearancea. the Labor men will get their way in the party name, which they insist shall bear a labor tag; in an Iriish Independence plank and In a platform declaration for nationalization of industry, to which the organizers of the Forty-eight movement are definitely opposed. The amalgamation proposal. If It Is ratified by the two conventions, almost undoubtedly will mean the nomination of Senator Robert M. La Follette of Wisconsin as the Presidential candidate, provided he can be induced to accept. He is known to be unwilling to run unless he can bn assured of a united party composed of strong elements and a platform that suits him. Both conventions are convinced now that tl.e will be able to produce the goods he has demsnded and their hopes are running high tonight that he will consent 10 be the standard bearer. Hearst Moa for t nion. Indications that th more coruverva-Uve group had lost control of the Committee of Forty-eight and that the more radical Westerners would dominst Its convention from now on led to a renewal of overtures for amalgamation by emmlssarie of William Randolph Hearst who are promoting the American Constitutional Party. While the agents were working among th delegate tonight Philip Francis, chief editorial writer of Th New Tork American, conferred with some of th Forty-elghters In the Hotel Morrison. Asked If he thought there waa a renewed prospect of amalgamation. Mr. Francis said there was - no doubt that the Constitutional Party would give every possible support to the new party being formed here, provided its offers acceptable candidates and an acceptable platform. He declared the view of the Hearst party was that Senator La Follette and Frank P. Walsh would make a strong ticket. This ticket probably would be acceptable to the proposed amalgamated Forty-elght-Labor convention, and It may be that, despite the repudiation, of the Hearst party in a formal statement by Mr. Hopkins on Friday, an invitation to the Constitutional group to come into the third party will be laaued. now that the Hopkins right wing seem to have lost control of th Forty-elghter. Discussing th platform. Mr. Francis said the Hearst men would stick for two planks, one a strong declaration for Irish independence and the other plank declaring for American freedom from entangling foreign ailiancea, as opposed to a League of Nations of any sort. The temper of both the majority of the Forty-elghters and the labor men aa manifested today is such that th inclusion ot the planks described by Mr. Franc la, at least in su balance, la regarded aa highly probable.
