The decision will be taken at the request of France Although the "official" reason is to give the I'lendh delegation more time in which to prepare new moratorium conditions, it li ibelieved the increasing indication of passive resistance by Germany to the French occupation on the Ruhr has much to do with it. It had been decided to begin discussion of German's request for a moratorium tomoriow morning and to reach a decision as soon as possible, but it is thought in reparation circles that France desires to leave the question of a moratorium in suspende for seveial weeks more In order to see what turn German events may take There are many reports of a pos_ slbility of Premier Poincare ai ranging a meeting with the Geimans to which would ibe invited Great Britain, Belgium and Italy and perhaps the United States Tlic purpose of such a meeting would ibe to trj and arrange a settlement with Germans, jnow that France has seized guarantees which e regards as necessary to the fulfillment of any terms which might be presented to Germany M Poincare left the way open when he de. clmed the proposal o£ Hugo Stinnes the great German industrialist, to come to Paris after the the breakdown of the recent premler B conf"r- ence in an effort to leach a direct understanding between France and the German industrialists What France Wauts If 4 no such meeting dexelops the RonraUons commission is expected to Xrant Germany a mroiatwrium by a majority Vote some time before the newly granted delay expires A general outline ot the new French plan foi a moratorium was circulated privately today It pio\ldcs for a two years moratorium w ith the following conditions t First An inteinal loan ot gold marks tot be used pai tly to stabilize the mark and partly to make certain restricted cash payments during the life of the moratorium.
