MITCHELL Is Under Serious Fire As Result of Recent Close Catastrophe; Session Is to Be a Lengthy Navy 1 IN F AVUR OF PROPOSED n L to start with General Mitchell's personality. It is an personality and the of it is essentially pait of the whole situation. The reports coming to Washington say the "man in the street," and especially the man in the moving pictures theater, likes Mitchell's personality and is on his side. That is a clear fact and to be Mitchell is an engaging expected. personality, well adapted to win popular approval under any circumstances and in many respects to deserve it. To Mitchell's personality add the obvious fact that nearly everybody likes a man daring enough to "sass the boss." Apart from the public, Washington, high and low, rather likes Mitchell's personality, but the better informed part of it does not approve his judg ment. Dashing" is a word frequently applied to Mitchell, not only as an aviator, but as a man. At the age of 45, he is one of the most daring aviators in the world. They say of him, he doesn't ask any aviator to do what he doesn't first do himself. The higher he goes, the better he likes it. Divers Have Close Call On Board U. S. S.

His recommendation was made af ter announcement had been received of the recovery of two additional bodies found by divers in the engine room, and was taken to mean that no further efforts would be made to raise the submarine. Admiral Christy reported also that the door leading from the engine room to the motor room had been found open and the room flooded.

The French finance minister did not sign an ironbound agreement, because he questioned his own authority to do so, holding that he was empowered only to settle the debt in fulL Under the proposed arrangement, France would pay $40,000,000 a year for the next five years an4 would resume negotiations for full settlement during that time when conditions warranted. The payments would be considered as full interest on the total debt. It was explained by Secretary Mellon that if the French government approves the arrangement, a reopening of the discussion as to permanent terms would be obligatory on " the French. Mr. Mellon was disappointed that nothing more came out of the week- long conversations here, but he said that a better understanding had re sulted. M. Caillaux also appeared cheerful even though he had failed to accomplish what his mission had set out to do. The sessions apparently were completely devoted to the effort to place in effect an agreement which would prevent complete disruption of the negotiaions. Finance Minister Caillaux in taking action of his government said: "We would have been as happy to reach a final agreement, which, within the limit he has indicated," the French minister of finance has been intrusted to sign. The arrangement you now propose bears a provisional character which has not been contemplated by the government of the republic. "Consequently, being as desirous as you are not to interrupt the negotiations, which cannot fail to reach an agreement the minister of finance con do no more than to submit to his colleagues of the French cabinet in Paris, the proposition which you have made and he will do his utmost to give you an answer as soon as possible. The final French offer which was rejected, the statement disclosed, provided France should pay $40,000,000 annually for the first five years; annually from the following seven years, and $100,000,000 annually for the noxy fifty-siyears, thus spreading the payments over sixty-eigh- t years there being Important conditions attached to this proposal which rendered these payments un certain in the view of the American commission.

The conference also adopted a res olution providing for "a declaration of rights and dutes of nations," and another directing a study to prevent wars of aggression. The resolutions cleared the way ior the conference to consider at its next session the question of reduction of armaments. The resolution of codification of in ternational laws was drafted by Elihu Root, whose paper on the subject had been read earlier in the day by Representative Theodore Burton of Ohio. It expressed appreciation for the work of the league of nations and union on codifthe ication and urged "a general and constructive plan for such codification, based on the progress made during recent years, with a view to defining the fundamental conditions of the regime of peace to be instituted between the nations." It also would provide a plan for the judicial settlement of disputes "which constitute a threat to that regime, and to the application, if necessary, of methods of execution and of sanction." The second resolution, reported by Senator H. La Fontaine of the Belgian group, provided for "a declaration of rights and duties of nations," which would "prove a powerful factor in promoting amongst them the sense of order, of international justice and of responsibility. V. V. Pella of the Rumanian group introduced the third resolution, which would create a permanent committee of the committee on juridical question, "to undertake the study of all the social, political, economic and moral causes of wars of aggression and to find practical solutions for the prevention of that crime," and to "draw up a preliminary draft of an international legal code." " In a preceding pass-age- , Mr. Root ahd stated his conviction that wars resulted from a state of mind. He amplified that statement with the assertion that "we have reached a point where war cannot be successfully car ried on unless it gratifies the feel ings of the great body of the people oi me country. "The conclusion," the paper con tinued, is that the most effective method of dealing with the state of mind which leads to war is not by any mere negative, but a consisting of a substitute for decision by war In the form of decision by. proof and reason. "Considering the use of these three institutions in the disposal of international controversies under the troubled and excited conditions of Europe during the past five years and the beneficient results which have been accomplished, it is apparent that these institutions are an evolution from the practically necessities of International life." it is well i f N00foH It' a Privilege LEGION MEETING' Session Favors Many Matters of Vital Importance to Nation; Many Nations Are Twenty-thir- Washington This week adds one more to the investigations growing out of the Shenandoah disaster.
