London, June 18. — Great Britain and Germany have reached agreement oh relative naval strength, it was announced officially today. The agreement is based, it was announced, on the concession to Germany of a fleet 35 per cent as strong as Great Britain's. There are to be further meetings on technical matters in '.he next few days. The conversations are expected to end Friday. The agreement provides that ; n no circumstances shall Germany's fleet exceed in total tonnage more than 35 per-cent of Britain's tonnage.

Any transfer would always be inside the 35 per cent limit. Fees Paid With Ransom Money? Strong Opposition to Measure and Lukewarm Support Brings Impasse.

First Run of Season at Local Plant Tuesday After noon Went Smoothly. AN UNUSUAL YIELD (By United Press). Washington, June 18. — Administration leaders. agreed privately today that there was strong likelihood of abandonment'of the Eccles banking bill unless strong white house pressure is exerted in congress. The bill, which would bolster federal reserve control over the national banking and credit systems, has encountered difficulties, which were said to have been aggravates! by a lukewarm administration attitude toward the measure. New deal leaders, seeing a possible chajpcc to speed adjournment of Congress by sidetracking the banKjng bill, baxe reached a virtual agreement calling for its abandonment unless they receive white houso instructions to prolong the session until it can be enacted. Sponsors of the bang reform legislation have not given up hope, but admit the difficulties crop.

Here Is what It did In the city of Its birth: • Made 268 regular mall carriers work a total of 360 hours overtime daily for about three weeks. Caused 306 regular clerks tb work 260 ho'urs daily overtime. Resulted in ninety substitute clerks and carriers, whose work- Ing average .is generally six to seven hours a day, working ten to twelve hours daily or '400 boors a day overtime. Gave eight to ten boars work per iday to forty-three about 1,400 hours overtime daily at an average pay of 70 cents per hour, or a total of $980. The total extra pay earned by Denver's postal workers because or the "chain" craze was about $20,000.

Two protests had been made against tho payment, one by n member of the board of county commissioners, and one by the Mitchell investment corporation, one of the heaviest taxpayers of the county. The claim of the Globe Creosoting Company was allowed by the board of commissioners, after procedure recommended by tb.3 state board of accounts had been followed and the'county council had ade an appropriation for t\in amount of the claim, which was originally about $14,000. The- claim has now been cut to about $9,000, and with the payment of $2.500. will he down to about $6,500. This claim was [ for blacktop- out controversy with the adminis-1 scythes to harvest the crop as j ping county roads in various townships and was made at the request of taxpayers who Insisted they have their roads Improved. Whether or not the improvement was worth the cost Is still a matter of argument, but the hill was ade and the state board of accounts sanctioned: its payment. feed gerved by members of the auxiliary of the Windfall district, the menu consisting of fried chicken, new peas, potatoes, strawberry shortcake and every thing heeded for a real meal.
