. Paris. April 6. In the most
solemn tone Premier griand last
evening in the French senate pledg
ed himself to apply the stern
sst coercion upon Germany after
May 1 unless the Teutons had sat
isfied the treaty provisions concern
ing disarmament, punishment of the
ivar guilty and reparations.
With outstretched hand,-as if he
were taking an oath, M. Briand,
"Unless Germajiy gives satisfac
tion on these three counts you may
rely upon me that the heaviest hand
will seize Germany by the scruff of
The senate cheered his statement
Pact to Divide Allies.
The French premier said that
Germany had attempted to divide
(lie allies at the London conference
but failed. Germany then attempted
to separate the United States from
the allies but the, American reply to
Dr. Simons in the recent note hand

Agrees on Russia.
The United States' answer to the
Soviet's offer to resume trade de
manded guarantees for the safety of
persons and property which M.
Jouvenel thinks it possible that
Russia will grant for the sake of
trade with the United States. The
French view of the Russian problem
is exactly the same as America's.
M. Jouvenel argued that the great
est mistake on the reparations ques
tion was in making it Franco-German
instead of international. He
said a serious mistake would be
made if the Russian problem was
treated piecemeal. He demanded
that France instruct M. Viviani to
ast- the UnitpH Sitntot t- uni
France in not allowing concession
hunters to secure Russian property
which was really France's security.
The senator declared that if French
security in Russia was disposed of
France should not be asked to pay
her foreign indebtedness.
4 M. Jouvenel referred to America
m the friendliest of terms. He aroused
tremendous cheering when he said
"America unfortunately sent millions
to wage war alongside of us, but
sent only one to make peace."

Hold Colby's Stand on Meso

On Mexican Oil Interests
London, April 6. American con
tentions for equality of treatment for
the citizens of all nations in man
dated territory are held by the
British government to be "scarcely
consistent" with the attitude oi tl:
United States toward American oil
interests in Mexico. The British
view is expressed in a long reply to
Secretary Colby's note oi last No
vember 20, which was made public
The note, sinned by Lord L'urzon,
secretary of state for foreign affairs,
was delivered March 1 and was in
answer to Secretary Colby's excep
tions to the San Remo agreement
between Great Britain and France
relative to petroleum resources in
Mesopotamia. That agreement, Lord
Curzon said, was not fully under

"aimed at no monopoly or ex-lusiv
The Mesopotamiau agreement w'as

British interests before the war and
not to be treated "merely as a mat
ter of abstract principle" without
reference to prewar negotiations.
Rights acquired in Palestine by the
Standard Oil company "are no
stronger" than these British rights,
the no( added.
Request of the American govern
ment that British rights thus ac
quired be disregarded, Lord Curzon
added, was "scarcely consistent"
with the attitude "adopted by the
I'nited States in regard to simitar
United States interests in Mexico."
The British note expresses agree
ment with the American argument
that the world's oil resources should
be open for development without
reference to nationality, but notes
than, an art of the Philippine legisla
ture in 1920 reserves development of
the public mineral lands there to
citizens of the United States or the
Philippines. Such legislation can
not but be regarded as in contradic
tion of the general principle enun
ciated by the United States," it con
