THURSDAY, JULY 3, 1930 PAGE TEN THE CANONSBURG, PA., DAILY NOTES OFFER OF EX-KAISER MET WITH LITTLE SYMPATHY BY LEADERS Would Allow International Court Martial to Decide Upon His Personal Responsibility for the World War BERLIN, July 3. (INS) The offer of ex-kaiser "Wilhelm of Germany to allow an international court-martial to determine his personal responsibility for. the sequence of events which led up to the world war, coming in the midst of the great national celebrations over liberation of the Rhineland, met with little sympathy among' political and military leaders here. Most members of a dslinguished group of leaders, interviewed by International News Service expressed downright opposi-r- tion to the proposal as a futile "typi- phere whIch maAe war possible The cally wilhelmesque" gesture. Virtual- resuit of the kaiser's trial could not ly all agreed the proposed internation- affect Germany. It is a question for ni trini irnnifi T.A nf Tin benefit whit- historians ever to Gei-many. News of the Ex-Kaiser's desire to stand trial was brought to New York '" by Poultney Bigelow, American his torian and publicist, on his return from Doom, Holland, where he visited "Wilhelm at his place ot exile. It. is generally felt here that it is too late for the court-martial to do any good. The ex-kaiser rejected the proposal . "when urged upon him re peatedly by his generals and friends before the Dawes and Young plans were put into operation, and now, through his long quiescence, the ex-kaiser has eliminated himself from Germany's life while events have rolled far beyond him. The former Crown Prince, who usually opposes his father in questions of policy, and General Von. , Macken-sen, his staunchest defender, refused to comment on the plan. General Erich Von Liulendori'f, Von Hindenburg's right-hand man in the war, contented himself with saying it was "a matter for the kaiser himself to decide." A very emphatic declaration on the subject was made by Siegried Von Kardorff, vice-president of the Reichstag and a presidential hope. "The kaiser's statement is interesting," Von Kardorff said, "but alleged personal guilt, the world has , long since formed a more favorable judgment of Germany's part in the Avar. The war guilt question is not with-' out decisive importance in practical politics." ' - "Germany will not think much of this international court proposal," sand Dr. Hans Bell, one of the two German signers of the Versailles treaty. "We always repudiated the extorted war guilty confession and history already has blasted it." Reaction of other important figures to thA proposal follow: Rudolf Breitscheid, socialist part spokesman: "The kaiser's offer is without practical importance. Although- nobody accused the kaiser of personal guilt, his actions helped create an atmos- Fritz Ebert, son of Germany's first president: "That is a typical Wilhelm declaration, the like of which no one takes seriously any more. Why didn't he speak up before?" Josef Goebbels, Berlin fascist leader, was the only outright supporter: "We would welcome it if the kaiser could prove his innocence before an international court," he said. "If the fascists should come into power, "we would immediately withdraw the war guilt confession. This would free us morally from reparations payments. Of course we would be forced to continue paying, but we would be "rid of the1 appearance of paying to atone for an offense." Dr. Alfred Hugenberg, noted pub lisher and nationalist leader, merely remarked that the statement was "very interesting." The general lukewarm attitude to ward the kaiser's proposal proves "be yond a shadow of doubt that "no has caused to be a dominant figure in German life, and has become merely what lie is all throughout the world an arresting but almost legendary figure of a past age and generation. HEAVILY REDUCED RECEIPTS DURING 1931 FISCAL YEAR But Treasury Must Meet Outstanding: Obligations Due City Claims Crown CENTER, Colo. (INS) Center claims to be the largest potato shipping center irf the United States. It is estimated that potato growers f throughout the San Luis valley ship ped 9,000 carloads of potatoes last season, realizing a gross income of about $5,400,000. The Center district shipped 4,960 of the total number of cars. Veteran Clerk Resigns Miss Blanche N. Brown has resigned as clerk at the Canonsburg post-office, after 12 years service. Miss Jane C. Capozzi has been appointed to fill the vacancy, effective July 1. Miss Capozzi has acted as substitute, clerk for the past three years. WASHINGTON, July 3 INS) With prospects of heavily reduced receipts during the 1931 fiscal year, the treas ury is faced with the .necessity of meeting maturing obligations amounting to $1,420,170,500 in certificates and tills. In addition three blocks of $1,61C,- 115,500 in three and one-half per cent treasury notes which may be called on six months notice at any of the tax payment periods during the year, must be retired in 1932. In the next two years there are securities of $4,979,928,250 maturing or callable, including the first liberty load of 1932-1947. The major portion of this issue bears 3 and one-half per cent but there is a iblock of over half a billion dollars with interest of 4 and one-quarter per cent, and if the "usual course is pursued, the bond market being favorable, this block would be retired and replaced with obligations bearing lower interest. Secretary Mellon carried over a big cash balance of more than $300,000,-00 from the 1930 fiscal year because of a maturing block of $51,310,000 in treasury hills July 14, another block of $104,600,000 in bills August 18, and jthe fact that large expenditures may be expected by the Federal Farm Board at any time. ' Since the Farm Board was established it has been necessary for the treasury to carry a considerably larger cash balance than at any time since the post-war reconstruction period. In September the treasury will retire $351,640,500 in 3 and one-eighth per cent certificates, in December $483,341,00 in 3 and one-quarter per cent certificates and June 15, 1931 an issue of $429,373,000 in 2 and seven-eighths per cent certificates. The present bond market Indicates the treasury would be able to reduce the rate of the new issue in September as compared with that to be retired. In operations of the public debt during the next year it is possible a substantial reduction will be possible in interest charges, from the abnormally high rates which prevailed during 1928 and 1929 when the booming, stock market absorbed most of the funds available for investment. In view of the probability of a small surplus for 1931 it is probable the reduction of the public debt will be the lowest of any year since the war. During the year ending June 30 the debt was reduced by $746,000,000 and stood at $16,1S5,209,000. This was a reduction of $10,411,000,000 since the debt was at its peak August 31, 1919. I? nil urn.
