Premier SliHfirancT concluded his reply to the Berlin" government by expressing the earnest desire oi the French government to. do everything not inconsistent with the defense of French interests to facilitate the task of the German government. The reply read: "Replying to yonr note of yestednv I have the honor to confirm to you thn conditions to which the government of . the French republic desires to subordinate-its eventual authorization to' . permit German troops to enter the RuliB valley. "Such an authorization, wbicii /.•ould constitute a derogation -of articles 4M.and -14 of the treaty of Versailles, could be justified i-.nly by imperative and evident necessity.

Whether the Ruhr district Is to witness a red Easter appears to be contingent upon the pacifying abilities of the Prussian minister .of the interior. His task is to modify the labor elements and otherwise nullify the effects of the methods adopted in the Ruhr by General von Watter, commander of the government forces. Vote Confidence in Government. • Confidence in the government's declarations has been voted by the Prussian assembly, which 'has voiced its approval of steps taken in the rceent past by the cabinet. Removal of the Erhardt naval bri- gaae, which took part in the Kappist revolt of March 13, from Doeberitz, has been prevented because 1 of opposition from railway men in the Altona district.

ASQUITH PLAN TURNED DOWN Premier Declares Proposals Which Would Be Acceptable in England Would Not Be Accepted i - - . in Ireland. j London. April 1. — The house of commons passed _ the second reading of the Irish home rule bill. The vote was*' 848 to 94. Replying to arguments against the bill. Premier Lloyd Oeorse declared the government litid every reason to he satisfiKl with tin- omirse of the debate, as it ulemimsrciilw.! that the government's plan was the only one that held the Hold. Tlie [.IHlitnlty of (ho problem, said the premier, was that no proposals which would hi> acrnptalik 1 t« any party in this country would lx a ac- wptpd by any parly in Ireland. If the people ot Ireland wi-ivaslji-il what plan they would iicc'ypt. declared Lloyd George, they would say by an emphatic majority: "\\V want indc- pi'iidenpe and tin Irish voimblic." Declines Independence Discussion. The premier Insisted there was no iiKe of talking nlxnit si>lf-i!i>li'riiiinii- tion, since those -who supported it must go to the full li'iiiilh nf jri-anting un Irish republic. "Splf-deti'rimmithm." continnr-il the premier, "iloi-s nut mean that every part, of the country, which has been su.iinsj togpllior for 100 years, shovdd have .the right to say: '\YY> mean to set lip a separati." republic.' 'I lien- must be a limit to the application .of any principle; otherwise it might be carried to every locality in every country throughout the world." j said with unmistakable emphasis: i "There has''beeu' a long and tragic hue and cry about; crime in Ireland. The assassinations are not the work of .my • countrymen,, but that of men'- t .from America who come over to Ire; land to carry. ' on the propaganda 1 going on in America, and which the British people never take the slightest j trouble to answer." I In lower tones, which did not reach all parts.of the housi), he added : "I have beon.infyrnied by Scotland ilard that six men have .left America to asasssinate.me." i FAC!N9 IflEAT FAMINE Chicago Stock- Yards 'S'trik^e Causes Shortage. .. | Prices Going Lip and Local Markets Will Be Drained ot Supplies—Over 15,000 MenVJMow Idle. Chicago, April'.'li-^Chicago will face ' a meat famine by-the end of the week if the stock -handlers' strike at 'tho stock yards is- not-settled. Already ' prices have .jumped from ".<¥! to $2 a hundred'on beef, and por.'i' [loin's have'gone 'to. 40 cents a pound wholesale, and in. a iew days the local market will be drained of meat supplies at any price 'whatever. Huge jumps in retail prices are forecast, should the w»,i'.:oiit be proionge-3, and householders,', dealers say, will be the most severely-.hit;•••• : ' The packing plants, with their 50,000 employees, are still.busy for the most .part on' the manufacturing end oC Ihe business, such as canning, smoking and working \irri special products, ] but nearly their whol_e supply of "meat coming in is beeC frVim other towns and not live stoekf • -When these sources fail the entire laboring force will be laid off.

Prospects of this 'lire still uncertain. Patrick Grtffen ' of the stock handlers' union said that handlers in other cities would .lie called out to aid the fight, if necessary.' ; PEACE DECLARED BY RESOLUTION Joint Measure Ending War With Germany Introduced in House. RUSSIANS. BEAT JAPS Mikado's troops Suffer Heavy . Losses' in Siberia Battle. TEACHERS DANCE accepted the plan o£ former Premier Asquith. Dealing with the suggestion of John R. Clynes, labor, for a constituent assembly, the premier emphasized that the previous Irish convention had failed anil asked if it were likely that the assembly proposed by . Mr. Clynes would he auy more successful. - Since any proposal which Irish opinion would by a large majority accept would not be accepted by any party in Great Brltuln, Mr. Lloyd George declared, therefore the government must exercise its judgment for the United Kingdom and the whole empire in order to come to the wisest conclusion possible. The premier reiterated his declaration that the government plan held tlie field because it recognized the fact that the house would not satisfy Irish opinion in Its present state without destroying the essential unity of the kingdom. The demand in Ireland for the moment was for independence and secession, not self-government. Refers to Jefferson Davis. Mr. Lloyd George said he wanted to say- to "our American frineds" that En.monn De Valera was putting forward the same claim in exactly the same language as Jefferson Davis, and that some of the men who voted for the Irish self-determination motion in the senate the other day had ancestors 'who fought to death against conceding to the Southern states- of America the very demand they are now supporting for Ireland. The acceptance of that demand, declared the premier, would never come. It was a demand which, if persisted in,, he said, would lead to exactly the same measures of repression as in the case of the Southern states of America. Great Britain, he declared, claimed nothing more than tlie United States had claimed- for themselves. Great Britain, he added, would stand on' its own legs. . There were certain powers which mlghi be conferred upon Ireland when she settled down to an established •union and 'accepted partnership with the United Kingdom, said the premier, but if they were given at the present they would only be wasted, to the' harm of the union and of. herself. It would be placing dangerous weapons in the hands of an Infuriated people, he declared. The premier concluded by saying thnt he. believed the bill would result in' bringing about the union .o£ the north and the south, union with Protestants and Catholics, union with Great Britain and Ireland. ' ' Carson Accuses Americans. . Sir Edward Carson's speech against the bill was remarkable principally because of his definite assertion that the crimes recently committed in Ireland were the work of men from America. The Ulster leader, standing grim and erect immediately behind the ex- tremte end of the government hpncti.'

McAnoo, former secretary of the treasury, replying to the questionnaire of Labor, tlie railroad brotherhood's publication, says he is-not a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president nnd that his "campaign is not financed because there Is no campaign for me." Mr. McAdoo says he Is willing to ,1oin in an appeal to congress to immediately enact legislation compelling candidates for the presidency to make sworn returns showing all moneys expended. . "I think," he wrote, "the corr-upt use of rnonj'y to nominate and elect candidates to office Is one of the most sinister and serious menaces to democratic institutions."
