DrlaiU of the scheme were io he
submitted hy Germany next week,
but Ihe trench premier rejected the
plan after a conference with M. Du
bois and M. Mauclcre. The premier'
opposition is laid to be due to the
fact that he believe Ihe scheme
made the industrialists more import
ant than the government, and since
the business party in Germany is in
a position to dictate to the govern
ment, refusal to carry out Ihe con
tract would leave the German gov
emmenl powerless lo act, and France
would he as had off as before.
British optimism which continued
even up to thil afternoon, has given
way lo frank gloom over the situa
tion. The British think the proposals
fairly meet M. Poincare's demand
for the German mine and forest by
actually giving France the products
of Ihese natural resource without
handing the district over to political
control. The district in control of
France, it is contended by the Brit
ish, would only add chaos to the al
ready critical situation.
Sayt Germany Sincere.
Sir John Bradbury, just before the
meeting of the reparations com
mission, told the Associated Press
he was convinced that Germany was
really Irying to meet the French
view, and he urged that the French
government meet Germany half way.
He informed the commission that
the German financial situation was
desperate and that social disorder in
its entirety in Germany was threat
ened. The French reported that they
were amazed to see great evidences
of prosperity in Germany, and de
clared that a large number of Ger
mans who apparently had discarded
their own currency, were using dol

Sir John Bradbury recommended
lo the commission that a moratorium
In cash payments should be granted
until Germany stabilized the mark
and balanced its budget. But the
French solidly opposed this recom
mendation. Would Act as Bridge.
The British view is that at best a
moratorium can only act as a bridge
until the whole question is again dis
cussed at the projected November
conference on interallied debts and
Such a meeting is imperative, in
the view of Sir John and the other
Despite the gloom in British quar
ters ,the British representatives are
making every effort to avoid a di
rect vote by the commission, be
cause they feel that occupation of the
icuhr or any other repressive meas
tirea against Germany at this time
would only hasten th impending
collapse of Germany and produce no
cash for France.
On the other land, the French
government is ronvinred that Ger
many can find 150,000,000 gold marks
for the August, September and Oc
tober payments. By that time, of
ficials helieve, another allied confer
ence will have- to discuss a new gen

local Burlington brakemen, are held
in the county jail in connection with
an alleged assault on Frank Curry, an
employe at the railroad shops. Ac
cording to officers, charges includ
ing kidnaping, robbery, assault and
battery, interference with the United
States postal -laws and violation of the
federal injunction issued by FVdcral
Judge Woodrough for the protection
of railroad employes, will likely be
placed against both men.
According to the story told by
Curry, he was seized on the street and
forced to accompany the men in
Jackson's automobile to a point 24
miles north of Alliance. On the way,
he said, he was blindfolded and his
shoes removed. He was taken from
the automobile and thrown into a
shallow pool of water. He crawled
out of the pool several times, and
each time was beaten and thrown
back in, he declared. He also report
ed that the men robbed him of a
check for $25, took his postoffice key
and some postal receipts. Finally he
was left alone and his assailants
drove off in the car, leaving him
blindfolded, he said.
The case is in the hands of United
States Deputy Marshal Toland of
Omaha, who declined to state what
steps would be taken, except to de
clare he had a "clean cut case"
against the brakemen.
The arrest of Jackson arid Goss is
the second one in connection with
the railroad strike here.

Prohibition of Strikes.
Schuyler, who spoke firt, sug
gested the prohibition of strikes and
lockouts hy law and. if necessary, by
romiitutionsl amendment. This
evoked Ihe reply from Senator jlar
riton that such a plan was not trac
ticahle. Senator Harrison declared
there would be strike and lockouts
as long as some men had lo work
for a living and other mrn conducted
Industrie that required the labor of
fc're.'t numbers of worker.
Ho suggested that Ihe quickest
way to end the strike would be lo
bring the leaders of both sides to
Washington, make them show Iheir
hands and then, if one side or the
other refused to yield to reasonable
demands, lo inform the Americon
people and let them judge. He said
he believed labor should have the
right to organize, just as bankers,
manufacturers and business groups
did, and he indicated he believed
toilers have the right-to strike when
they have exhausted every other
mean to obtain justice.

Limited to 20 Minnies.
V.'a.hington, Aug. 27. A unanl
iiious consent agreement to take up
Ihe soldiers' bonus bill Monday and
pass H to a final vote was entered
into by the enate.
With a view to getting a vole late
Tuesday it was agreed that alter 6
p. m, Monday no senator should
sprak more than once nor longer
than ,20 minutes on any amendment.
The unanimous consent agreement
was proposed by Senator Knbinton,
democrat, Arkansas, hut it imposed
no limitation on debate on Ihe bill
itself. It was suggested, however,
that there might be a move to that
end later should it prove nectsiary.
Will Not Oppost Action.
Senators Underwood, driuorrat,
Alabama, and llorah, republican,
Idaho, said they would oflcf no ob
jection lo speedy action, Senator
Underwood gave formal notice that
his fight would be against Ihe pass
age oi the measure over President
Harding's veto in the event that it
was returned lo congress with execu
Hy common understanding the
senate did not undertake to bring to
a vote any of the several amend
ments thu far offered. Senator Mc
Nary, republican, Oregon, presented
hi amendment proposing the recla
mation bill as a part of the bonus,
with preference given veterans in re
clamation work and final assistance
for them in developing homesteads
on the reclaimed lands.
In promising his support to any
bill that would give former service
men Ihe justice to which he believed
they were entitled, Senator Ashurst,
democrat, Arizona, told the senate it
would be forced to decide among
other things, whether it would listen
to the "cry of commercialization of
patriotism'' when it had hot done that
at thtf end of the war.
Other Claims Paid.
Congress, he said, had proceeded to
vote, and had made no apology for do
ing so to pay shipping claims, claims
of munitions makers and claiins of the
makers of uniforms and other equip
ment for the service men. It had
done so, he said, on the statement
that those contractors would have
made profit had the war not ended.
There was no cry of commercializa
tion of patriotism then, he said. It
was called "business.""
"But these were inanimate ob
jects, he went on. Those claims
must be met and met promptly, but
the soldier, the man who fired the
shots, must wait, It is commerciali
zation of patriotism when his com
pensation is to be adjusted."
The Arizona senator said he must
remind the senate that the original
demand for the bonus came not from
the former service men, but from
men and women who believed that
the service meii were entitled to the
Ransdell Supports Bill.
Also supporting the bill. Senator
Ransdell, Louisiana, told the senate
that if congress wished to settle its
obligations to the veterans it could
find means to do so and that if it
did not there were "a thousand ex
cuses to hide behind.
"It seems to me," he said, "that as
long as the war was on there was no
end to the amount of money the
United States could raise to foot its
bills, but now when victory is won
and the national security assured, we
suddenly become too poor to adjust
the soldiers' salaries on an equitable
basis. In the mcantinme. however.
our government has seen fit to repeal
the excess profits tax, which yielded
about ?61 5,000,000 a year.
J he shameful conduct of this gov
ernment toward its soldiers since the
war," Senator Ransdell continued.
"stands out in bold contrast when
compared with the treatment of

water of Quiberon bav, 20 miles
southeast of here on the Brittany
coast. The swift currents abounding
there are supposed to have swept the
warship slightly from its course. The
deflection was sufficient, however, to
carry it squarely and headon over
the pointed rock known and charter
ed but dangerously concealed be
neath the water in this part of the
bay. The water rushed into the
hold, flooding the boilers and short
circuiting the electricity. The en
gine crew quickly took every pre
caution to avoid explosions.
Meanwhile, the crew began launch
ing boats while awaiting help from
a sister drcadnaught, the Paris, and
many torpedo boats and oilier small
craft which had been asked bv wire
less for help. The crew got off
safely before the dreadnaught slump
ed over on its side and the 900 offi
cers and men. afloat in boats and
rafts, cere taken aboard by other
vessels. The rescue required several
hours, and at noon it was announced
that 15 members of the crew were
missing. Twelve of these were found
later, and a final roll call showed
that only three were lost.
