Philadelphia. .April 4.-Plans for

culation, upon which civilization is
dependent, said:
J lie united Mates snouui call a
conference of the interested powers
for the purpose of proposing this
method ot settlement or one embody
ing these principles:
"The German indemnity would be
fixed at the sum tentatively, agreed
upon at tne rtngio-rrrncn eigntn

lo receive credit for at least $5,000,
000.000 for the cables . and for the
teritories in Africa and Oceania
transferred to the allied and asso
ciated powers.
"This method of liquidation would
snabre Germany at once to begin to
purchase from England, France, Rus
iia and the United States' what she
so desperately needs. The United
Slates would then purchase from the
allied and 'associated powers for at
least $7,000,000,0000 or possibly for
the full amount of the debts owed to
us, these cables and these territories
in Africa and Oceania. This opera
tion would give us liquidation, not by
cancellation, but by substitution of
valuable assests for securities of
doubtful value. ' -
Would Acquire Territory.
"Under this plan the United States
would secure the cabjes and addi
tional territory to the extent of more
than 1,000,000 square miles, cr ap
proximately one-tlnrd of her pres
ent territory. We would cancel the
allied debt with the understanding
mat we would go into Atnca to co
.operate with France and England in
carrying out a great constructive poli
cy such as we have announced with
reference to the Philippines.
United States Senator McCormick
of Illinois said:
"We shall not obtain one iota of
our debt until disarmament among
the nations in Europe has been ae
complished and until we have assur
ance that the states of Europe will
not fall back again into that condition
which led them to world war. Be
fore there should be any talk of can
cellation, they should destroy the
restrictions and rivalries and jeal
ousies which now exist between the
states and prevent international com
merce and travel."
He said the treaties of peace which
followed the recent war are not last
ing, adding: This was the most
painful discovery I made on my trip
to Europe. The way has been left
open for wars of the future.
"The Silcsian frontier settlement
will disappoint both the Poles and
that this boundary was not fixed

There is ah economic blockade
about the central states of Europe,
there are innumerable restrictions
upon travel and commerce, there 'is
universal distrust and ill will and
anV sort of exchange between the
nations is almost impossible. Today
there are more men under arms in
Europe, west, of Russia, than there
were- betore the outoreaK ot tne
"It is essential there be a settle
ment and that Europe return to
economic reconstruction. They must
abandon their rivalries and desist
from adventures in Asia. There is
bitterness between the nations re
cently associated in the prosecution
of the war and even neutral nations
have been drawn into the imbroglio(
ot hatred ana jealousy.
"Since the armistice, Europe has
spent money lavishly.
"Part of the debt they owe us
could be paid by territories and
cables, not only those now held by
Germany, but by the other countries
also. There is no doubt that at
present there is a' strong discrim-
, ination against this country by those
who control means of international
communications. Four-fifths of the
cabl lines of the world are owned
outside of the United States.
"The only policy in Europe is ma
terialistic; the only solution for its
tils is an economic one. In guarding
our own interests we will save Eu
rope from herself.
- "Let Europe pay her debt to us
by a transfer of cables, territories,
securities and funds which she could
save through disarmament and aban
donment of international restric
tions and rivalries."
Mystery of Missing Omaha
Salesman Is Yet Unsolved
The disappearance of Claude S.
Rife, former salesman for the Brinn
& Jensen Pa1 per company, is still a
mystery. Intimate frieuds and his
wife, Grace A. Rife, who is suing him
for divorce, have learned no trace
of his whereabouts since he left his
room at the Wellington Inn last
Tuesday noon. .,
Whether Jit carried out threats
of suicide is a1 matter of conjecture
among his acquaintances. Kirs. Rife
appears unconcerned about her hus
band's disappearance.
(ConMaacd From rag On.)
Stillman brought with him soino lit
tle trinkets or playthings for the
child. There were many character
istics of the child that resembled Mr.
"On his visit to the Leeds house
Mr. Stillman was always.very digni
fied and at times it was difficult to
believe that he was leading such a
life. He did not hesitate to go in
public with Mrs. Leeds. For a long
time I never1 dreamed that he wa
married and had any children. It
was all news to me later on.
Mrs. Leeds on Yacht.
"During Mr. Stillman's visit Mrs.
Leeds would be away from the
house for two or three days at a
time. I understood that on these
visits she was aboard the yacht, of
which she was very fond. The Leeds
villa was ideally built for the pur
pose of entertaining guests, although
in the absence of Mr. Stillman there
were very few visitors. Mrs. Leeds
was most of the time by herself.
"Everything went along lovely un
til Sunday, March 13, when a close
friend of Mrs. Leeds came over from
West Palm Beach and had a talk with
Mrs. Leeds.' She told Mrs. Leeds
that her whereabouts .had become
known in New York and that she had
better make arrangements for de
parture at once to escape the news
paper men ana aeteenves. iwrs.
Leeds was terribly aisturoea. ane
decided to eo to -Havana and the
next day took passage on the City
of Miami.
"She left Jay with me at the
Halcyon hotel and told me she ex
pected to be gone for a couple of
weeks. But she evidently changed
her mind, i She returned on the same
boat without touching soil.
Mrs. Leeds Bewildered.
"On her return she was more be
wildered than ever. I happened to
call up the Flamingo hotel to secure
a book I left behind and Mrs. Leeds
accused me of betraying her. She
didn't want anyone to know that she
had -returned from Havana. . After
one dav in Maimi she took young
9 ay and Bertha Potter over to West
Palm Beach, where they visited the
friend who had warned her and then
started north. . '
"Mrs. Leeds did not seem to be
overburdened with money . when she
returned from Cuba. She was un
able to pay up all of her expenses
incurred in Miami Beach and bor
rowed several hundred dollars from
the Potter woman, out of which she
paid to me an advance of $100.
"Mrs, Leeds is also in .debt to the
Jap servants. ' They permitted their
salary to accumulate and it amounted
to more than $1,000 when Mrs.
Leeds went north.
"One incident which I thought
was very strange occurred the night
before - Mrs. Leeds sailed for
Tore Up Photographs.
"She ordered all of the photo
graphs of v Jay and herself and Mr.
Stillman destroyed. Snapshots and
everything else were torn up.
"Mrs. Leeds had evidently re
ceived instructions to carry out
these plans. She was anything but
happy. She seemed to be suffering
some mental trouble. At one time
she said to me in a rather pathetic
tone: 'But I do try to be good.'
'On another occasion Mrs. Leeds
gave me to believe that there was
another child but that it was no
longer living.
"Once before the arrival of Mr.
Stillman I asked Mrs. Leeds where
her husband was.
"She intimated that the boy's fa
ther disappeared when the child was
nine rhonths old. I never knew or
saw anyone by the name of Lseds.
The only caller was Mr. Sti'llman
and he was too well known here to
masqeurade as Leeds."
( "Chicken" Will Fight.
Mrs. Leeds has retained rmml
and is on the verge of taking de
cisive legal action to protect her in
terests and those of her 31-mnntt-s.
old son. She is considering the pos
sibility of actively intervening in the
wvorce suit on Dehalt ot her son and
may even apply to the courts for the
appointment of a guardian to deter
mine the parentage of the child and
hx his place and rights in the tangled
Stillman proceedings. i
show is the tune for me to fish "
she is reported to have said, "and I
am going to fight. I can get along,
out my baby must . be protected."
Mrs. Leeds, her friends- sav. now
realizes that the chances of eventual
marriage with Stillman have gone
glimmering and she feels that his at
titude has forced her to take pro
tective measures.
Has Been Threatened. j
A very few days aeo. w hen in the 1
vicinity of New -York, she received
message saying: "If you put feet
m Aew ork Mr. Millman will have
nothing more to do with you." She
s said to have regarded this as a
cold-blooded threat and to have felt
that efforts were being made to sac-
rihce per and disavow Stillman s par
entage of her son.
Another surprising development is
that Millman is alleged to. havft con
cealed from his lawyers the story of
his association with Mrs. Leeds and
did not even mention to them the
possibility of the terrific "counter
blast" that lay in his relationship
with "Flo." His attorneys were so
chagrined when they first learned of
the love nest chapter in his life,
is said, that they threatened to
withdraw from the proceedings.
It is said that Stillman warned of
ficials and employes of the National
City bank, of which he is president,
to refrain from discussing the di-
orce suit and that he dismissed a
woman secretary tor disooevins
these orders.

Lincoln, April 4. (Special Tele
gram.) The Nebraska Legislative
league will be entertained in Omaha
every odd year under rules adopted
tonight by league members on the
eve of the tenth annual banquet.
This means that every year in which
there isn't a session of the legisla

feast in Omaha.
Victor Reynolds of Omaha, retir
ing president of the league presided
at the banquet.
Representative James A; Rodman
was elected president; Col. Tom
Majors, 81, Peru, vice president;
Representative Vincent Hascall.
Omaha, secretary-treasurer.
Following the business meeting,
hundreds of members and former

heard witticisms on this session, wit
nessed moving pictures of this ses
sion and those in the past and lis
tened to speeches by Senator Gil
bert M. Hitchcock of Omaha and
A. J. Weaver of Falls City.
Remarkable Development.
Speaking of changes in the legis
lative machinery, Senator Hitchcock
"Within the 18 years of my pub
lic life, I have seen a remarkable
development of the government at
Washington. Its activities have
enormously increased. Congress,
which formerly alternated one year a
long session and next year a short
session with a recess each year run
ning from five months to eight
months, has had during the last 15
years, so many extra sessions and
such short recess I that senators
and .representatives hardly have
been able to get home at all to their
"The change began under Roose
velt's administration with a great
program of regulatory and reform
legislation. It continued througu
Taft's somewhat reactionary ' four
years of tariff 'tinkering and the
struggle over Canadian reciprocity.
Then came the eight years of Wil
son's administration just closed,
during which congress has been in
almost continuous session in peace
as well as in war time, with an un
paralleled program of legislation.
Facing Difficult Program.
"And now, one week from today,
after a month's rest, congress is to
meet in extra session under the call
of President Harding, facing a dif
ficult legislative program which is
likely to keep it busy for many
"These years through three ad
ministrations have seen annual gov
ernment expenditures of $700,000,000
to $800,000,000 a year grow to a
$1,000,000,000, then to $1,200,000,000
before the war and finally now to
over $4,000,000,000 a year. I hey'
have seen a great increase in gov
ernment machinery, including the
addition of several members of the
cabinet. They have seen four great
constitutional amendments adopted,
providing for income taxes, for the
election of senators by the people,
for prohibition and for woman suf
frage. "They have witnessed the estab
lishment of the great Federal Re
serve bank system, which has be
come the most powerful financial
system in the world. They have
seen the beginning of agricultural
credits in the establishment of the
Federal Farm Loan banks, and the
starting of an era of internal de
velopment by the new good roads
program. They have seen the
monopolies of the country checked
and regulated by law and legitimate

Passports Are Not
Needed, Dauglierty
Congress Inadvertently Re
pealed Law When Wartime
Laws Terminated.
Washington, April 4. American
citizens entering or leaving the
United States no longer (vill be re
quired to obtain passports or permits,
the State department announced to
day after receiving an opinion by At
torney General Daugherty. Aliens
leaving the country may aldo do so
without permits, but passports con
trol regulations' still are in effect in
the cases of aliens entering the
United States.
The opinion was called for to
clarify the situation resulting from
the inadvertent action of the last
congress in terminating the passport
control act of 1918.
The State department, however,
was said to consider it advisable for
Americans planning to go abroad to
inquire of foreign ' diplomatic and
consular officers what document?, if
any, would be accepted by their
countries in lieu of regular passports.

pushed to a vote at the earliest possi
ble date.
Official announcement of this plan
may be expected within a few Mays.
The resolution will be amended in
one important particular. There will
be a new section added to serve no
tice upon the world that the United
States stands ready to fight when
ever, in the judgment of this govern
ment, the civilization of the world,
is imperilled.
Text of New Section.
The new section will read as fal
lows: "That finally, it shall be the de
clared policy of bur government, in
order to meet fully and fairly our
obligations to ourselves and to the
world, that the freedom and peace of
Europe being again threatened by
any power or combination of pow
ers, the United States will regard
such situation with grave concern as
a menace to its. own to' peace and
freedom, will consult with other pow
ers attected, with a view to devising
means for the removal of such men
ace, and will, the necessity arising in
the future, carry out the same com
plete accord and co-operation with
our chief co-belligerents for the de
fense of civilization."
It has been proposed that the reso-.
lution be further amended to express
the attitude of the administration
with regard to German reparations.
Such a suggestion was put forward
by the rrench government, it be
came known today. It was learned,
however that M. Viviani has been
satisfied- by Senator Knox that such
declaration would add nothing to
the firmness of the administration's
policy and that, if such action be
comes necessity, it might be taken
in a separate resolution.
Viviani Pleased.
M. Viviani, in conversation with
senators- who have conferred with
him during the past few days, has
expressed satisfaction with the
American peace program. - He is
convinced, it was stated, beyond
a shadow of a doubt that the United
States is determined to nemain aloof
from the entanglements of the Ver
sailles pact, but he is pleased to
note the almost universal feeling
in Washington that Germany must
not be permitted to escaped lust
punishment for precipitating the
war. The prejudice he entertained
against the Knox resolution when
he came to the United States has
given way to a belief, it is stated,
that the passage of such a measure
in the amended form suggested,
could not fail to improve the posi
tion of the allies.
M. Viviani had a further oppor
tunity of acquainting himself with
the peace program at a dinner given
by Senator McCormick of Illinois
tonight, at which the trench envoy
met members of the senate com
mittee on foreign relations.
