The Oaltils today prints the tnost disparaging statement that has yet appeared, in the form of an interview with Walter Barry, president of the American Chamber of Commerce In Paris. The American's first words, when asked what he thought about the Washington conference. Were: "I do not think about It at all." Dut the interviewer was persist ent.

"After Jesus Christ, son of Ood. the great pacifist centuries of bloody religious war. After The Hague tribunal the most awful carnage In history. After the league of nations disaccord among the allies. After the disarmament conference the dismantling of the Swiss navy. "You are a pessimist," Mr. P,arry was told.

"Washington Is making my compatriots understand that the security of Europe, and from that the security of the world, depends upon he security of Fiance, and that, the 'security of France de pends upon the security of the Khtne. But let us not forget that If fha I'nlted States Is attending to pacifism It Is attending above all to the Pacific. "What complicated and disturbing problems will come up there!

Asked about the allied debts to the L'nlted States, Mr. Barry re-piled: "The I'nlted States will not come near to that question, and fur several reasons. One Is enough. That would be the resultant bankruptcy of the whole planet, Americans would lose Infinitely more billions than the allies owe." CONTINUED.

The president ess been Im pressed that, a somewhat anoma lous situation surrounds the relations of the Interstate commerce commission snd the railway labor board. The interstate comnieree commission has very large powers, j through Its control of rates, to determine what the revenues of the railroads should be, while the railway labor board, through its authority In the matter of wage determinations, has a very large power in determining the largest Item of railway expenditures. President Tackles Problems. "The president was. therefore. impressed with the desirability of between them. It Is a fact not entirely without Interest that these two bodies have never officially met tofjether, "For a long time the president baa been giving much attention to the problem of the railroads in its broadest relations. He has been persistently assured on one side mat nustness could not make a general and lasting Improvement until railroad rates should come down and on the other side, he has been told that it was Impossible for rates to come down- unless the wage charge sHould he lowered. He. therefore, determined to eet together the two public bodies which have to deal with wages and rates, and give them every possible encouragement to take a strong lead in the effort at an adjustment."

It is said he will deny anv unusual activity by his men during the period . of the truce. Meantime, the Irish delegates ' had sent several messengers to various parts of Ireland to obtain specific denials of reported violations of the truce, and It was reported that some of the delegates might even visit Dublin for this purpose over the week end.
