THE TONE IS OPTIMISTIC Complete Agreement Possible on Some Things But the French Want the Money. What is Government's View. BEGIANS CANT SEE IT Brussels Paper Talks of Negative Policy of Great Britain Toward Germany. (By The Associated Press) t Paris, July 1.—Prime Minister Baldwin's reparation statement was generally commented upon In French official cllclos today as a carefully worded document which might lead to an agreement, this being dependout upon tho nature of tho note It announced as forthcoming for tho French government's perusal and assent. Both in foreign affairs circles, and at tho ministry of tho interior, the general tone was optimistic. Some regrot was expressed, however, that the British premier had crltlclr.ed the Ruhr occupation hut was silent regarding the German passive resistance, entailing outrages and losses of lives. Keep Entente Intact. - It was noted that Mr. Baldwin's speech made It appear there was a complete agreement on the sontl- mental, commercial and economic neoosaity of keoplng the entente intact, hut that there remained a discordance of Views as to methods. "Wo seem to have made precious little headway alnco last January In reconciling the British and French viewpoints,"said one cabinet member. The British note, which is expected shortly, will be "examined "with the utmost desire to concur-wjth the con- elusions in it," said one of tho cabinet members at tho conclusion o'f tho cabinet council. He added that tho impression created would have been much more favorablo had the British prime minister opened his remarks by declaring that the debtor should pay his debts, BO that this would have prefaced hla criticism of tho Ituhr occupation.

The document will be accompanied by a covoring note declaring for tho benefit of the nllios the British gov ernment's view on the whole question and this, it is believed, will take more time for preparation than the reply Itself, which, according to some reports, virtually has already been drafted. Pending a dofinlto official statement respecting communication to tho United Slates government of a draft of the reply, there is a general supposition that this step will be taken. A Belgian View. Brussels, July 13.—Tho .Independence Bolgo considers that Prime Minister Baldwin Is unable completely to disassociate himself from the policy of his predecessors... "France and Belgium, despite all their deference toward England," says' tho newspaper, "cannot renounce their defense of what they consider their highest interests, knowing that •tho existing situation results more from Kngland's negative policy towards Germany than from the ipollcy which Premiers Thounis and Poincare seek to realize in occupying the 'Ruhr.' Talked of Speech. (By The Associated I'ress) Paris, July 13—Prime Minister Baldwin's speech in the house of common's yesterday, it was understood was to bo the principal topic under discussion at today's meeting of tho French cabinet. The feeling that prevailed in official circles this morning was that tho speech did not absolutely closo tho door to an understanding with Great Britain although there wns an immense gulf between the policies of tho two countries which the.courteous and friendly phrases used by Mr; Baldwin, did not hide. Tho pross resents what is regards ar, his undue leniency with Germany. Seeks Public Opinion. (By Tho Associated Press) London, July 13.—Great Britain awaited w'lt'h eager interest today for tho reflex on world opinion of Prom ief Baldwin's pronouncement on reparations In - the house of commons yesterday. Officials here appeared especially anxious to soo what tho United Slates thought of tho govornrueut's latest gesture, and tho- evening newspapers were eagerly _ecanued for some reflection of Washington's attitude. If the American government gives evidence of djsappointtment at tho failure of Baldwin to present in specific terms Secretary Hughes' suggestion for Jin Impartial International audit of Germany's assets, it may be raid that the . Idea will probably be set forth more fully in Great Britain's proposed draft reply to Germany's latest memorandum, since it was Germany herself who first adopted Secretary Hughes' formula.
