THREE CENTS. ) French Premier Declares Reich as a Country Is Rich. 4 Points for Experts on Reparations to Consider Outlined by Poincare Paris, Nov. 1 (By thr- Associated Pipsb) Premier l'oin-care's spwch at Never, today, as interpreted by the (Kronen Kor-eigrn Office, recognizes four points as within the jurisdiction of the committee of experts which is to make a reparation inquiry as a result of the recent negotiations of the European chancelleries and the Washington Government. The Premier by this recognition, It is held, excluded consideration of any other point. The four points indicated are: First Germany's present capacity for payment. Second New methods of payment. Third The renovation of German finances. Fourth A new monetary system. The program, the Foreign Office points out. is in line with that indicated in the American note to London. Nevers, France, Nov. 1 Premier Tolncare, speaking today at the in auguration of a soldiers' memorial here, stated that Germany had been forced into a systematically organized bankruptcy and that certain classes of the population have been reduced to misery for the sole bene fit of wealthy Industrial and com mercial leaders. For this reason he deems it neces srry, he said, to hold Germany's pledges until France is paid in full and pointed out the progress made in the Ruhr during French occupation toward a resumption of economic activity. The Premier's speech dealt largely with how the French had been treated by the Versailles Treaty and the disappointments resulting from it. This brought the Premier to the question of the moment the committee of experts and the role It will play under the Reparation Commission. "This is not the moment to change our conduct and we will not chango It," the Premier declared. "We have a keen, desire to solve as rapidly as possible, and In full agreement with our Allies, the grave question of reparations in whloh we are more Interested than any. But .wewlll neither reconsider fixing our credits, Js jibandoB our rights, renounce-our pledges nor destroy the treaty signed by so many nations." . Part Reparations Board Should Play. . ! "Let an examination be made to discover what Germany can pay this . moment or during a short space of time. That i well. That is the very role of the Reparation Commission. Enlightened by experts it can ap point, let the Reparation Commission determine now arrangements of payment. That is the mission it receive! from the Treaty; that it search means of raising German finances in a purely monetary fashion is its right, but let it not attempt either to change decisions it has already taken regarding the total amourjt of our credits or engage in future attempts indefinitely. "What injustice, what risk, if in a snort time Germany were freed from part of its debt, and if in some yearsvshe presented herself bofore us resurrected, enriched, to humiliate us by a renewal of her power and crush us by. her supremacy? We will not be taken in such a snare." "We do not intend," continued the Premier, "that the Reich shall har bor ideas of revenge and go even as rar as America to conspire against French unity und protest against the restitution of Alsace and Lorraine to the mother country: nor that it rnconstltutc! Its military formations and armaments. That is all." France Asked No Territory. "France," he added, "neither received nor asked any territorial advantage in Europe. She simply recovered what belonged to her what had been stolen from her, but she was told: 'Keep quiet; if you agree not to remain too long on the Rhine we will guarantee you against fresh aggression.' It was added: 'Have no fear: you shall be indemnified for all the damage you have suffered." She then signed with confidence a treaty with which she was not very well satisfied, but on which at least she counted as a minimum. "Not many months passed before the finest stones of the edifice crumbled to dust. Our allies wTio were the most keen In demanding the prosecution of the Kaiser and his accomplices forgot their intentions and were astonished when we reminded them. Those who had insisted on a j reduction of the duration of our oc-! cupation and who had offered us guarantee pacts which incidentally were far from Fufflclent withdrew, some of them failing to ratify the treaty in the making of which they had collaborated, and others reneat- ing that their offer was dependent upon the denfiite attitude of the former." Ijaiikruptcv Systematically Organized The Premier then dealt with Germany's refusal to pay In r obligations, "minting on the Idea that time would free her from them, would weaken the solidarity of the Allies, put the r visi-lunce to sleep and sap their spirit of resolution. "Long before we decided to enter the Huhr and seize guarantees." he said, . "the Reich had systematically organized its bankruptcy. If nait of the iKjpulation of tiermany todaj; was reduced to lieggury and another '-part HS opulent it was because Germany would have it ho, he deflated. Germany as a whole was not impoverished, he insisted, only the stnte and the middle classes. Germany herself remaining wealthy. "Her immense resources." the Premier continued, "have been scandalously cornered by the great industrialists and the big bankers, who refuse give anything to the. Htate. while the state makes no serious effort to compel them to fulfill their duties as citizens. Out of this arises the apparent distress of the Heich." He added that the peasantry and the large landed proprietors also were flourishing. Premier Poincare repeated his declaration that France would hold her guarantee until wholly paid. nd added: "We are witnessing the final spasms of resistance." HOOVER'S ON RUSSIA HUGHES HERE AND NOW Binoe tne "ford Boom was launched it seems to hover perilously near Muscle Shoals. Mr. Hughes' foreign policy seems to liy that as long us we're going as far as a 32-mile limit we ma.v ns well go all the way over. We look for steady progress in the reparations matter until the 'experts hnve to go Into "conference." But as they don't meet until De cember, we hardly expect the "dead- look" to come much before Christmas. And perhaps the "split" needn't be dreaded before New Year. N. H. THOUGHT I LOVED STOKES, SAYS WIFE ON WITNESS STAND Tells of Visit to Brooklyn and of Meeting Wallace in Cali fornia, y Mrs. -aeien Elwood Stokes was called to the witness stand when the divorce hearing before Supreme Court Justice Jeremiah T. Mahoney was resumed -this afternoon. Mrs. btoK.es entered the room accompanied by her mother and she looked as if she had been through a severe Illness. Mrs. Stokes re viewed her entire acquaintanceship with the co-respondent, Edgar T. Wallace, before her marriage and denied she had 'ever visited him in Bunceton, Mo. During the testimony Justice Mahoney was forced to warn Samuel Untermyer, her coun sel, tnat ne would declare a mistrial unless he ceased disobeying his rules on objections. " Both principals in the Stokes di vorce suit appeared fatigued when the trial was resumed this morning. The plaintiff, W. E. D. StokeS, sitting alone at the .left end of the counsel table, appeared to have aged considerably since the beginning of the trial. T Mrs. Miller was recalled to the stand by Max D. Steuer, attorney for Mr. Stokes. She was questioned about presents she had made to her daughter and told of some of the Jewelry she had given. Mrs. Stokes testified she came to New York when 1910 with her friends, Dr. and Mrs. Hendrix, and registered at St. Andrew's Hotel in Brooklyn. Later all went, to the Ansonia, where she met Stokes. She related the incidents leading up to her marriage and said that at Stokes' request they had kept it quiet, he-cause he stated his marriage at that time might have injured him in a financial deal. "Were you at that .time in love with Mr. Stokes?" Mr. Untermyer asked. "I "thought I was," replied the witness. Mr. Steuer was on his feet with an objection which the Court sustained. Question and answer stricken from testimony. Opening the examination of Mrs. Stokes, her counsel, Samuel Unter myer. asked her how old she was and she said 37. "In your visits to New York before your marriage were you always accompanied by some one?" he asked. "Always chaperoned." Mrs. Stokes was then asked to trace her early life, which involved her school days. At one time, she said, Bhe attended Sycamore School, at Sycamore, 111. This was the first. time she had gone away from home, she declared. "Did you ever run away from school there?" asked Mr. Untermyer. "No," said Mrs. Stokes.

( POSITION CHANGING; UNYIELDING Commerce 1 Secretary Sees Recognition Possible s Moscow Adopts Stable Currency and Otherwise Puts House in Order. Fall Shares Hoover's View President Studies Situation Closely. Eagle Bureau, Sal Colorado Building. By 1IKXRY Sl'YDAM. Washington. Nov. 1- President Coolidge is showing considerable Interest in the question, of recognition of Soviet Russia. As on most other subjects, Mr. Coolidge has given no Indication of his own altitude, but he is consulting various men with keen appre.ciatlqn of this problem. The President feels since Mexican lecognition has been accomplished, and our position In Turkey straightened out, it Is advisable to make a careful survey, of this Government's relation to Rursia. lie is approach ing this question with an open mind, without prejudice in any direction. The President's method, should he decide on any action toward Russia, would probably take the form of a commission to the Soviet capital in an efort to find a basis for a com mercial agreement or the resump tion of diplomatic relations. Those of the President's advisers who are favorable to Russian recog nitlon are emphasizing several new arguments. It is being urged that Kuspla has established a new cur rency that is passing at par, and that a tax has been imposed In kind upon larm products which comes near to balancing the Government s budget. Other arguments more generally familiar are also being put forward. Hoover's Viewpoint Changing. Former Governor James R. Good rich of Indiana, who went to Russia originally as a member of the Amer ican Relief Administration under Herbert. Hoover, has been urging Russian recognition for some time rftist. Secretary Hoover himself, who has kept in close touch with Rus sian developments through his food organization and is thus probably better Informed than any other Government personality, has been hitherto opposed to Russian recognition. He is now known to be more favorably inclined. He is reported to have been much impressed with bnOrrtlWi on Page. 3. VALUATIONS ALONG CONEY BOARDWALK JUMPED $2,000,000 Steeplechase Assessed at $3,- 125,000 for 1924-Aftermath of Realty Speculation. A study of the tax books today revealed the fact that the increase in assessed valuations of property along the Boardwalk at Coney Island has reached the sum of $2,000,000. This is an aftermath of the great speculation last spring in real estate fronting on the thoroughfare. Dur ing the boom every parcel from the Municipal Baths down to Sea Gate became involved in some kind of deal and the sales along the walk during that period have guided the assessors in reaching the new valuations.. . The outstanding increase has been made on the Steeplechase Park property, which has a frontage of 618 feet on Surf ave.. running to the Boardwalk between W. 16th and W. 19th sts. In 1923 the assessed valuation was $1.4X4.000. On the tax books for 1924 the property is as sessed at J3.12S.00). This property. owned by the Tilyou estate, has the largest Boardwalk frontage at the resort, and during the real estate boom reports were circulated around Coney Island that syndicates had offered anywhere from $2,500,000 to $5,000,000 for the property. The next sharp increase was placed on the Feltman property at W. 10th St. and Surf ave. extending to the Boardwalk, which has been increased from $760,000 in 1923 to $1,600,000 for 1924. This property was also prominent in the possibilities for speculation. While the officers of the firm declared at the outset of the trading at the resort that the property was not in the market at any price, speculators were not discouraged by this statement from offering tempting terms to the owners. RHINE STATE IS DOOMED TO FAIL VIEWINJBLENZ Must Collapse Unless Peo pie Back It, 'Official Circles Declare. Coblenz, Nov. 1 (By the Associate! Press) Unless there is some indication aoon that efforts to establish an independent Rhineland Hlate have the support of the general population, the present Separatist movement may dissolve of itself within a few weeks, it was said today in official circles which are closely in tourh with all developments. Several proposals for compromise have been advanced, it Is understood. One of these provides for an autonomous state, but Joseph Matthes, Premier of the provisional government of the Hhincland Republic, asserts he will not consider any such proposition. "H will be a free independent Uhineland or nothing," Matthes paid. There are many representative cit izens who favor autonomy, but they will have nothing to do with the present movement, on the ground tltat the leaders are not representative officials or business men and lack the confidence of the people. At the French press headquarters it was said to be quite apparent now that the present movement is not backed by representative leaders nor by the people generally. Movement Not Spontaneous. It was at first, believed that the Separatist movement was spontane ous, it was explained by French off! clats.ibut laiei developments caused many to change their opinions. The officials admitted that as yet peasants, merchants and townspeople had not com! forward to offer their approval of the republic, as the leaders at first contended they would. f In view of these circumstances, it was explained, and unless strong leaders coma tc the front with hopes of bringing a distinct majority over to their side, the present movement headed by Matthes, Dorten, Von Metzen and the others may fade gradually from public notice. If the Separatists should fail to gain popular tavor, it was said, the French themselves may take a hand and clean out the element now in stalled in the Town Halls In various pants of the Rhineland." The Britisn attitude hero and at Cologne toward the Separatists Is that the movement Is being carried on merely by mobs who are endeav oring to gain control, and that Lon don would never countenance recog nition under these circumstances. Official Papers Destroyed. Rheydt, Rhineland, Nov. 1 Separatist today destroyed all official documents here including the criminal register - and the - pooto- grapns in tne rogues gaiiery. Cologne, Germany, Nov. 1 J Kremers, former priest who holds the title Minister of Religion and Public Workship in the provisional Hhtnaland Republic, was arrested last night by the Cologne police. Two other Separatists were itaken into custody earlier in the day on the suspicion or having come heae to attempt a putsch. The British military authorities have permitted the local police to provide themselves with extra firearms owing to rumors that the Sep aratists may attempt to seize power here. Poincare Orsran Back." Separatists. Paris. Nov. 1. The British Gov ernment's argument Invoking Aril cle 27 ot the Treaty of Versailles against encouraging or recognizing the SJparatist movement in the Rhineland is termed absolute soph istry by the semi-omcial Temps in a leading editorial today. The Enclish interpretation means, the newspaper continues, that Ger many, while persistently protesting against the frontiers as fixed at Ver sailles, would have been guaranteed by mor-! than 30 states and Domin ions. The British Government has not invited Chancellor Ktresemann to eradicate the Separatist, movement In Bavurla. which It should do, the Temps holds, it it intends to be im partial. The newspaper declares that official discush'on of the Rhineland movement is premature, as no one knows what fate awaits it .and at any rate it cannot be developed or unmeet oy a toreign country. The secession of the Rhineland from the Reich would not affect the Versailles Treaty any more than Belgium's separation from the Netherlands, caused revision of the Vienna Congress stipulations, the Temps concludes. TRAIN DROPS 20 FEET; THREE MEN KILLED Philadelphia, Nov. 1 Three Reading trainmen were killed today when a Reading Railway milk train struck an open switch and plunged 20 feet over a trestle siding here today. The train was moving at a fair speed Nwhen it hit the switch and -ran oui on the trestle siding. The weight of the train was too great for the trestle, and one side collapsed. BLUENOSE WINS RETAINS Canadian Defender Leads Columbia From Start to Finish. Halifax, X. S., Nov. 1 The Luncn-berg fishing schoorer Bluenose, Canadian defender of the interna tional fishermen's trophy, defeated the American schooner Columbia in the second race of the series off this port today and thereby retained th trophy in Canadian possession for another year. The race was sailed in heavy weather with the wind rising from 18 knots at the start to fully knots, and the boats shot over.the course of about 39 miles in fast time. Bluenose was over the starting line first and never was headed. Captain Angus Walters opened up a lead of a mile at one time ai'd all of Caotal Ben Pine's strategy could not over come the handicap. The big bodied Canadian fisher man demonstrated her superiority oier ine American rhullenger in np-snorting northeaster that cause both skippers to shorten sail snower tluir decks with spray wit every plunge.

With his daughter, MUs Megan, he stunted the lower Man hattan skyline a3 the ferry crossed and, on his arrival at the Manhat tan side, he was greeted formally by ttrover A. Whalen. T Then he entered a waiting: motor and was hurried away under the es cort of ten motorcycle policemen. A small crowd cheered the Premier's ar on its way across the Queens- boro Bridge.

Almost immediately the Davis house became dark. With shades drawn it gave no appearance of life. The estate is an isolated one with the nearest neighbors at least a quarter of a mile away. Mr. Davis bought the property several months ago from Alfred C. Kedford, t he Standard Oil man. It sits well back from the road and is ideal for purposes of rest and seclusion.

He was shot twice and his skull smashed with somfl heavy weapon. The savagery of tha attack placed the crime on a plane of its own for brutality. Lovett, who had been on the police bad books for years and who) was characterized by them as a "man killer," was hot in the neck and head, evidently as he lay asleep. Get-lUig shot was no new experience for . Lovett, for at various times eight bul lets had found lodgment in his body. He was only recently out of the hospital but his vitality was amazing. Perhaps the murderer had that in mind as he stood over Loveit lying asleep on the floor, so he maiie assurance doubly sure by beating in his head. Taken at Disadvantage. Lovett waa taken at a disadvantage but if the stories about hiin. current in police circles, are to be taken at their face value, Bill never gave an enemy a chance, so he took a dose of his own medicine. It wai a case of the pitcher going too often to the well.. It was written that this would be the final outcome, The veteran detectives who knew Bill and had followed hia career, would have told you. They were skeptical of Bill's" reformation even when he got married, so when they saw their old acquaintance lying dead in the bleak little room close by the river they were not startled. They took It as a matter of course. It was th way of the gangs and those who run with them, they said. Lovett had evidently been dead seven or eight hours when he was found. Policeman James Ryan of the Poplar Street Station, who has the post, found the body. The door to the street was open. Ryan went, in and in the rear found Lovott with bis head los,e to a window fro'mwhich t he -lower pRrt1ranH,r!' tng.

It is used as a headquarters for an independent union of truck loaders, hard-working, decent young fellows, who, when they are not loading trucks with consignments of goods, store their hand trucks and tools there and while away their leisure hours playing cards. There is a social club, the Lotos Club, which uses it as a meeting place. Lovett used to drop in there now and then, but until yesterday afternoon he had not been seen in the neighborhood for two years. Killed A.s He Slept Is Bollrf. The police gave the club members a good reputation. They believe that some one who wished to square an old grudge with Lovett, for reasons which gangsters keep to themselves, hit Lovctt's trail yesterday and saw hirn go into the rear room to camp for the night. Waiting until it. seemed sure that Lovett must be sound asleep his assailant stole in -and finished him before he could rise to defend himself. As you enter the place you eee a room cluttered with hand trucks and lumber.
