Jan. 22 (Associated Press) After having held the rotunda of i concert hall in Dublin for four days, the self-styled Council of Unemployed sur rendered and evacuated the premises In the early hours of this morning. Exciting scenes were witnessed daring Saturday night. At one time It seemed llktly that the crowds, which were hostile to the " garrison." would attempt to storm the building from which shots had been fired. DUBLIN. Jan. 22 (Associated Press). A gang of men at Kingstown last night., at the point of revolvers, seised an automobile ' belonging to Viscount KltsAlan. - former Lord Lieutenant and Governor Ueneral of Ireland, and dirt-appeared with . it.

IRISH DELEGATES SEE PARIS. On Eve of Congress They Visit Spots Associated With Their History PARIS. Jan. 22 (Associated Press). The dlegates to the Irish Congress visited today spots associated -with the history of Ireland or prepared the program for the opening of the sessions tomor row. Eamon de Valera delivered a speech at the Irish College, founded In the sixteenth century, and received a tumultuous greeting from the student body when he asked the college authorities to grant the students a holiday. In speaking of the situation in Ireland, Mr. de Valera said: " Ireland nas got back her own. al-thougrh not vet all her own." Soma of th! delegates went to the Bastile. where one of the Irish heroes of thai Battle of Fontenoy was Imprisoned. They also saw the Avenue Hoche. named after the General who took ships and guns to Ireland in 1708. Others visited the jatln quarter, where houses in which Iriih patriots once lived were pointed out 1 3 mem. CELLY FOUND GUILTY BY RERUN COURT Her. Ballet Is Condemned as Immoral and a Fine of 37,000 Marks Is Ordered. Ceprrisht. 152. by Tht Nsw Tork TImea Company. By Wireless to Thi Nsw Yosk Times. BERLIN, Jan. 22. German Justice has at last rendered a verdict that made dancing In cabarets, and the manufac ture and sale of photographs as well as moving pictures of such nude dances, constitute a punishable offense. After a several weeks' trial the learned District rmirf has condemned Cellv Derhevdt and her husband. ex-Lieutenant Alfred Seweloh. for having violated me sense of decency of every normal persons," in other words, a verdict of guilty on the specific charge of being a public nuisance, and inflicted a fine of 37,000 marks after Ctlly and her ballet had danced unmolested for nearly two years before an estimated 400.000 persons. The case is unprecedented In German Jurisprudence and marks the first success of crusaders against immorality and license under the name of liberty incident to the new republican Govern ment and Constitution, if the verdict is not upset by the higher courts It will have a far-reaching effect on the clothing of cabaret dancers. Meanwhile it id certain to precipitati: popular and press controversy with a strong political tinge, for curiously the reactionaries, nationalists and militarists in general are the consistent foes of Immorality under the cloak of art whereof Colly's almost nude ballet w.-u the hated symbol to them, while in general. Republicans. Democrats. Liberals. Socialists and radicals, strong for freedom In art as !n everything else, sturdily rSmnlnnHl Cellv a a symbol of the new-won freedom and emancipation from the state of Kaiserism. The d'-fense had built up Its case on the argument that these almost nude dances were not Immoral because they were highly artistic and offered to the public In the sincere spirit of art and made fervent appeal to the " spirit of the new times." Three old-fashioned Teuton Justices rendered the verdict of guilty with a learned dissertation on the nude in art. holding that public exhibition of nudity was not necessarily Immoral In the leiral sense provided it was of such a highly artistic nature that the " purely artistic overshadowed the sexual." but that the specific case of the (:l!y ballet constituted " completely unmotivated nakedness.'' since it posess'-d no high artistic merit and was p rform'l before ; !mn-piKn-di-inkli j; cabaret tuJi.-i.o -" seeking and gaining Its effect purely through scanty clothing." FRENCH HIT BACK AT LLOYD GEORGE Remarks About Conferences and Old Diplomacy Seized Upon by Paris Press. NEW EFFORTS FOR GENOA Cry Is Raised That France Must Go Better Praoared Than at Washington and Cannes. Cttpyr!tft-.t. 19;j Tb. Haw Tork Tlmaa Company. Special Cable to Tns Niw Yok Times. PARIS. Jan. 22. The few sentences In which Mr. Lloyd George In his speech yesterday replied to M. Polncare H pro posal to conduct diplomatic affairs in the future through diplomatic channels, and not by means of conferences, has had far from an Improving effect on Kranco- Critinh relations. In the press there is a storm of criticism and reply, and In the rejoinders there are some shrewd oiows administered. Quoting the sentence from the Premier's speech to the effect that if there had been a conference in July, WW. there would have been no war. the Temps replies: ' If. eight days earlier than she did. tngland had announced her intention to side with France, then also there would have been no war. That's why today we are trying to make an Anglo- riaicn compact. Pertlnax. in the Echo de Pails, goes even further, and roundly reminds Lloyd George that on Aug. 2. 1914. he was sun opposed to England's entry Into the war. and said so at a meeting- of uie oniun jaoinei. " When one has been capable of such errors of Judgment." declares Pertlnax. " one has no right to pose as an oracle In affairs of the Continent." But the moral which is being drawn from it all is that it is a most unwise business to go into a conference without knowing beforehand exactly what is going to be discussed and exactly what result Is desired. After their many mistakes at San Remo. at Spa. at Washington and at Cannes, it is now dawning on the Qua! d'Orsay that that Is where their mistakes had their orierin. and that M. Polncare's method of writ ing notes preparing the way for a con ference and limiting all Issues is there fore likely to be the one followed for the future, in spite of all Lloyd George may say. The cry !s beginning to be raised ev erywhere: " If we are going to Genoa. let us at least ro better prepared and better Informed than we went to Wash ington. In that cry there Is a record of distinct progress toward which nothing has helped more than the article In which Wlckham Steed, editor of The London Times, has summed up the errors of French diplomacy after the catastrophe at Cannes. In the Figaro. Raymond Recouly today, taking Steed's article as a text, accuses the French Foreign Office staff of being responsible ror the mismanagement of the whole "French case. In one passage he Quotes Foch as saying to him tie other day: I have been called to seven or eight conferences and at every one of them I nave seen new t rench representatives and unknown faces. On the Englfsh side. on the otner hand, there Is always Lloyd George and his Invariable assistants. How the devil do you exDect tie same to be fair? " Today it is stated that Premier Poln- care has been passing his time writing a note making a formal request for a guarantee In writing from his allies that the Question of reparations shall not be discussed at Genoa, and exDressinar the expectation that if Germany Is Included In a European consortium all the profits she receives will -be earmarked beforehand for the reparations account. 1th this necatlve ororram of security It seems France Is preparing to go to Genoa, but already something more la being" asked by the liberal newspapers. They have begun reminding the Government that these negative conditions are all very well In their way. but that at the same time the Government must h va tfllmtA cloa . an4 w a 1 1 rW- ( ..wl views on all questions to be discussed. I Such no one certainly has now and from ' the point or view or preparedness Tance is likely to go to Genoa as unequipped as she went to Washington. They can not get the political significance of the conference out of their heads, and even a serious writer, such as Auguste Gau- vain. Instead of endeavoring to frame an economic policy for France in the conference, writes today in the Journal des DebaU: Lloyd George I free to embrace Lf-nin and Trotsky If he wishes, but we won't follow his example." Ministerial changes and disruption caused In the governmental offices by the demobilization nnd death of many of the best civil servant I of courw sraely the oricin of this Inability or the country to preps r.- Its arguments and obtain filtrate advice and information before conferences take place. but at last It is beirinnlng to dawn on a few where the ral weakness of France In theM conferences lies. M. Polncart 1.. belnir urged from all sides to re-form his Ministry and, above all. to begnl giving some attention to foreign opinion. If he does it certainly will be a step toward obtaining for France a fairer h.ftrins; than she has sometimes had. and above all it will be a step toward her obtaining a clearer opinion about what is being said and done outside her frontiers. As one instance how badly she Is being served by her own servants It should be Instanced that three days nfter the American Senate passed the McCorm1-k resolution no copy of It had been cabled to France and all comment on It was based on frspinentary Information picked UD from the English press. Even the Iremer of the country and the Secretariat of the league of Nations are still trying to obtain from American newspaper offices an exact copy of the text. BABY CALMS MRS. ROSIER.

SAVE $50,000,000 BY NEW CLERK RULES Railroads Banefit. Though Protesting, in Labor Board Overtime Pay Decision. SPLIT TRICK NOW ALLOWED 300.000 Employes Affected by Allowance of Time and a Half Pay After Nine Hours. CHICAGO. Jan. 22. Although opposed by the three railroad members of the United States Railroad Labor Board, provision for time and a half pay after nine hours of work was retained in rules governing railway clerks Issued today by the board, which also authorized an eight-hour day within a Irpread of twelve hours. The new rules l.ecome effective Feb. 1. The railroad members. In a dissenting opinion, held that punitive overtime within ten hours was " unjust unfair, unreasonable and burdened the carrier with an uneconomical condition." It Is estimated that the reduction in overtime pay will save the railroads r..000.000 a year. The decision affects .'.00.000 clerks, freight handlers and station agents. The new rules supplant the national agreement under Federal control. This provided time and one-half pay for over eight hours, which the roads contended was particularly burdensome where only intermittent service wa required but which extended over a longer period than eight hours. The " split trick." created by the new rules will removf this objection, it is thought. The railroad representatives favored straight time for the ninth and tenth hours of work, holding that ten hours service was uatiltv i i j fiff coua not meet the demands of tn). pubUc ; clnCT. .. rlth economy and effi- The eigh hour day was retained I principle, as were collective bargalnimc and union recognition. The new rules cover sll points In clerical worklnar agreements not covered by rules negotiated between individual roads and their employes. Time and one-haV pay now applies only to the tenth hour of work or thereafter and to hours worked If held on duty more than two hours when called for extra work. Sunday and holiday work -will be paid at straight time, ex--.-pt where the railroad agrees to do otherwise. Under the old national agreement, an employe received overtime pay after "xplratlon of eight hours from the time he first went on duty, although" he may have had several hours of idleness due to the fact that there was no train ser vice nor any other duties to Derform. Where all the work at a station due to the arrival ond departure of trains only 'n the mernlnr and evening comes with in a spread of twelve hours, such an employe under tne new rule would work In the morning, be released in the middle of the day without pay and rertort in the afternoon tor the remainder of the day's work. Vnder the old rule he was paid overtime for the evening work or 'wo snuis cmpioyea, wnicn later was generally done. The new rule win also allow the rati roads, at larger terminals where the arrival and departure of trains is bunched, to eannlov baanr.BwrL -train Announcers, gatemen. train and en sine crew callers and employes in similar positions on spilt tricks instead or hav lng to maintain two shifts. The new rules allow straight time for the dally work period to employes travel lng on company boardinsT cars to as signments sway from their regular places, but eliminate the provision for payment of half time between the hours of 10 P.
