Advice of Morgan to Reduce
Reparations Bill Makes
Revision of Treaty
Deadlock Is Expected
Paris, June 4. A revision of the
treaty of Versailles is being fought
over the week end in the four great
est chancellories of Europe and it
will come up at a tpecial meeting of
the reparations commission next
1 he advice given by J. F. Morgan
to the allied governments yesterday
to reduce the 132.000,000,000 gold
marks ($33,000,000,000) reparations
bill aud also reduce the allied forces
on the Rhine for economy, means the
revision of two essential themes- of
the Versailles treaty. The allied 'gov
ernments have decided to reply to
the bankers through their reparations
delegates who will meet on Tuesday.
It will be a momentous day in the
history of Europe.
The British and Italian govern-
ments will surely vote in the affirm
ative and the French and Belgian
governments in the negative. The
allied reply to the bankers will mean
an allied deadlock.
In the face of the allied deadlock
which will hold up the final settle
ment of the reparations problem and
consequently the economic future of
all Europe, the potential authority of
America in the question is today
greatly concerning the allied govern
ments, particularly the frencn.
An official American delegate on
the reparations commission would
constitute the fifth member and the
controlling vote, the other four being
equally divided between the French
and British groups.
The commission does not have
the authority to reduce the repara
tions bill, but under the Versailles
treaty a majority vote of the com
mission can. before 1926, allow Ger
many a moratorium until the end of
19J0. Only an American vote is
necessary to give Germany a com
olete or partial moratorium.
The refusal of the French to ac-J
cept a reduction of the reparations,
which Premier Poincare emphasized
in the chamber of deputies yester
day, will limit the bankers to buy
ing a small loan tor Uermany in
stead of revision of the entire repara
tions problem.... ,. ,
The French government is entire
ly willing to reduce the German
reparations bill if its war debts are
annulled, and the, British government
is even more willing. On this basis
they can send a common reply to
the bankers, thus again throwing on
America the entire burden and
thwarting European reconstruction.

Geneva, Neb., June 4. (Special.)
The verdict returned by the jury
in the inquiry into the death of
Charles Kebrlc, 56, who was found
dead in a stalled car on the streets
of Exeter, was that he came to his
death by strangulation. Ray Coates
of Exeter, sought as a witness, was
not found. He sold Kerble the car
and at his home the men drank con
siderable liquor, according to the
testimony of both Charles Kovanda,
who was with Kebrle when he was
found dead in the auto, and Jim
Kerble, 19, son of Kerble, who
went home from the Coates house
driving the old car "in which the
three men had come to Exeter. Ko
vanda testified that he was almost
too drunk to walk from the Coates
house to the car, and that Kebrle
was also drunk and sat on the back
seat, so that he could sleep.
Kebrle lived seven miles east of
Geneva. He was wealthy, owning
1,288 acres of land.

criticizing legislation authorizing this

The defense of the legislation is

"Equal Opportunity Admitted."
"It is admitted bv all that there
should be that equal opportunity for
the treatment of all pursuits, which
he (Judge Gary) contends for. The
lestalization of agricultural co-opera-
tiono does no more than attempt to
put the 6,000,000 of scattered and
competitively selling farmers on an
equal footing with the largely con
solidated buyers ot their products,
and with industry generally.
Practically everything that these
millions of farmers sell is sold in
competition, one with the other,
through a comparatively small num
ber of buyers, to the millions of con
sumers, whereas, everything they
buy is sold to them by a relatively
small number of sellers.
"The farmers have not asked for
any special privilege, nor has it been
accorded to them. Certain laws have
been passed, and others sought, to
enable them to do in th'ir way co
operation what other producers, the
makers of steel, for emaple, do by
means of great corporations. The
purposes of co-operation on the one
hand and corporations on the other
are the same economy, efficiency
and a degree of certainty of adequate
returns for capital and enterprise. It
