France Seeking To Dominate Hague Reparations Prley By SAMUEL DASH1KW, U n i t e d Preen StnfE Cori-cstpoii-ient. THE" HAGUE, Jan. 3.--Representatives of every nation concerned in tho payment or receiving of war. reparations and in liquidation of the vast war debts t h a t have upset the economic equilibrium of Europe for 1 years were at The Hague today for the opening of tho second Hague conference. The main purpose of th9 convention is to set up Hie f i n a n c i a l machinery hy which the Young- Plan may d e f i n i t e l y become operative, after it has b'ien approved ny the delegates arid accepted by their reepectlvo countries. With the arrival of. Premier Andre Tardieu of France, at the hear! of the largest governmental delegation l h a t ever left Parle, it; was believed that France's uncompromising attltrde will be crystallized in. Tardiau'e insistence upon the enactment of (sanctions which may Include re-oecupalion of German territory if Germany fails to live up to the terms of the reparations agreement. The French, recalling the Jicerbity of Philip Snowden, Brttteh chancellor of tho exchequer, at the first Hague- conference, are prepared t3 enter any political or financial duel that may arise, particularly over the question of deliveries In'kind and the problem of the functions of the projected international bank. Tardieu. is backed by repeaUxl votes ot confidence from his Parliament, and has assumed a virtual dictntorehlp over t h e negotiations. Aristide Brland, foreign minister, on tho other hand, appears to have taken flecon-1 place, which is in strange contrast to his previous dominance at international conferences. The United Stat,e« te unofficially represented by Edwin "Wilson, first secretary ot tho Paris embassy. While forecaets were made that the conference would be- peaceful--per- liaps uneventful -- some observers were skeptical, arid profesee-l to expect fireworks from Snowden and Tardieu. If the conference is sncca.sful, it will create a general agreement on all questions affecting German and ·noji-G-ermau reparat!ous,anl subse- q u e n t ratification of tho Young Plan may be anticipated. The conference .hus provides the means for making ettective tho 58-year agreeme H of the Young Plan, -which ehould completely liquidate, and terminate the Central Ppwers' indebtedness to the .Vlliea.
