Internationai' ;;' Loan Problem Commy :. i nlst Outbreak In ' f Bulgaria. . . . ; By EDWARD W. PICKARD FOR some time President Harding been striving to bring about a general agrement by the railways of the country to reduce freight rates materlnfly and voluntarily, accepting the opinion-o- mo ny experts that low-er rates are essential to the, recovery of business In tle United States, lie called a number of railway executives to a oonferen,e in the White House and laid the case before theto, and they nt mod a committee of their mem-bership to with the Inter-state commerce commission In at-tempting to realise the President's wishes. This looked promising unrll Mr. Harding n few days later admitted that the railway chiefs had so clearly presented to him the difficulties of the situation that he was not very san-guine of success. - '' ( ; nr. Then the Interstate commerce com-mission by itself came to the rescue and tin Wednesday announced n deeU slon In accordance with which rates on nesrly all classes and commodities of traffic will be reduced on July 1 by amounts equal to 10 per cent of their present levels. The chief commodities excluded from the reduction are products In nil sections out-- I side of New Knglund. live stock and western grain and grnln products. The order reaffirm the reduction ATTORNEY GENERAL course In relation to War contract frauds nnd his alleged connection with the securing , of Charles Wv Morse's release from the Atlanta penitentiary continue to suit-pl- y the "warmest" of the news from Washington. Senator Caraway of Ar-kansas Is the most persistent of those attacking. Daugherty, and the latter made the assertion that the senator was actuated to throw a screen about men guilty of war frauds. To this Caraway responded with a challenge to the attorney general daring hi in to bring about a .congressional Investlga-- ) Hon to determine the truth of his charges. Said the Arkansan: '' ' I defy Daugherty to ask the senate to pass q , resolution for an Investiga-tion. If he does not do It. he stands convicted before the public as the man who. has entered Into a corrupt agreement to defraud the government, although be Is the attorney general; and If his party will not let him be Investigated his party must take the responsibility for nwt doinp tc He said certain things were true. I say when he said It that ne uttered a will-ful and malicious falsehood." THE house has'not yet acted on the providing for a congres-sional investigation of war fraud charges, which was introduced by Representative Woodruff of Michigan. Senator Norrls of .Nebraska- - was quoted as saying thut if the house did not speedily puss his resolution, a similar one would be Introduced In the senate from the Republican side. Alto-gether, the situation of the attorney generul Is decidedly uncomfortable. TOM WATSON, the eccentric from Georgia, hud one of his "spells" last week and tried his best 4o get into a list tight with Senator I'lilpps of Colorado. Watson w as ungry over I'lilpps". action In regard to cer-tain Georgia postofUce nominations and during a session of the senate he began a furious verbal attack on the Coloradoan. They then went outside the main doorway and Watson roundly cursed I'lilpps, shouting: 'if-yo- u will come 'down off that ' step, I'll knock your fuce In with my. fist." Pbipps, de-clining the chullenge to combut; called a sergetint and the raging Watson wus led away by Senator lie-Nar-reduce her proportion of 22 per cent of the reparations, and for France to cut down her expectations of cash payments. PREMIER STAMBOULISKY.of some prlvaie conferences with M. Tchitcherin of Russia when they were at Genoa, and the result ap pears to be that the Bulgarian govern-ment, formerly the declared opponent of bolshevtsm, has changed front and will line up with the soviet republic and make Its International policies conform to those of Russia, Germany and Tur-key! This wlll not .only present a solid ' combination against the allies and the little "entente, but also will have Its effect on the Thraclan ques-tion, for the Bulgnrs have always sided with the' Turks ' against the Greeks there, y ' The Bulgarian communists started some kind of an uprising a few days ago nnd at first It was reported they had seized the government and that King Boris was a fugitive. This was false, nnd it appeared the row was mainly an attempt by the communists to force the removal of Wrangel'a lk Russians1 from the country. The rebels really did begin a inarch on Sofia, but the anuy remained loyal and drove them off. CHARLES R. CRANE of Chicago, minister to China, Is a great traveler but be Is not likely for some time to vldit France or any French possessions. Word has" come from Syria that a French military court In Damascus, after a hearing by default, has found Mr. Crane guilty of Inciting the recent uprising in the French mandate and sentenced him to twenty" years in prison. A woman Moslem teacher who was Involved In the outbreak was one of those selected by Mr. Crane to receive educational benefit In the United States, fie gave her his check for $1,000 for traveling expensed and this gave rise to the charge that the Amerlcun government was subsidizing the rebels. MICHAEL COLLINS, hend of the State provisional gov e nment, and De VulerH have signed a compact, regarding the coining , elec-tions, and the later,' scents 'to have got the best of It. The agreement vlrtuully .will . result In the of the present 'membership, of the DafJ'KIr- - j eann, so that (lie De Vulera republi- - lu.o per eeni in uip viKirru mm grain rates last fall nnd the cut of 10 per cent made voluntarily by the rosds on agricultural products.

The farmers nlon. fhey sny. will benefit to the extent of 'some $127.000 OOO s year on goisl that they buy normally. The cut i ex-pected to Increase buying nnd thus stimulate Industry nnd diminish un-employment. On this there Is general agreement anion? manufacturers, bih ImnM-is- , Many of the mil executives were not only surprised ky tlie conimls-slon'- s decls'on but nM quite disgrun-tled, holding that the reduction should have been postponed nntil the road had accumulated mor funds thmuuh Increased earnings. Others, however, admitted thnt the loss In freight rev-enue probably would ke more thnnoff-se- t by Increase In traffic. The Interstate commerce commission Included In Its decision the determlna- - Men of 5.7." per cent os the reasonable annual return for carriers on their capital Investment, as compared with the fl per cent level previously fixed. The new figure really nmounts to rt per cent, slme the federal corporation Income taxes nre subtracted from earnings before prod's nre figured. Another part of President Harding's plun was a voluntary acceptance of t reduction of wages by the railway hrotherhttoiK At present there Is lit-tle prospect of th's. but t lie railway labor board in exiwcted to make a de-cision soon on wage questions that hnire hem pending before It, the find-ing to be based solely on evidence preseited In the hearings. It Is mated by the bureau of railway eco-nomics that railway labor hoard or-ders lo dote lire saving the roads $300.. OOO.OtKl n ytiir In reduced wages, so much of the freight reduction seem r'tnid;' have bevti u.'.wuded. NOTHING doing yet In the matter bill for soldiers bonus. The Republican members of the finance committee lust week found themselves evenly divided between Siuoot's plun for paid-u- p insurance policies und McCumber's plun for cer-tificates on which the service men could borrow. It wus thought for u time that President Ifurdlng might ex-press u preference, but he evidently was determined the senators should extricate themselves as best they might. Then the Republicans decided to cull In the Democratic members of the committee lo aid in drafting a bill. It wits suit! Hie I leinoiTata rather favored the McCumber plun. THERE was a prospect last week German reparations crisis, due tm May 31, would tie averted. The allied reparations commission was considering offering Geraiuny indef-inite postponement of the ultimatum date on condition that she accept es-sentially the commission's full pro-gram. Such an arrangement wus thought to be advisable in order to give time to the International bunkers' committee, which met Thursday In Purls, knur solutions of the interna-tional loan problem were presented to the bankers ut their opening session. J. P. Morgan submitted what he termed the American plan, nnd the others were offered by Sir Hubert Klndersley, one of the governors of the Bunk of England; Charles Sargent, former French undersecretary of f-inance and president of the P.unque de I'Unlon Parisienne, and Dr. (I. Vlsser-Ing- , president of the Netherlands hank. The sessions' were private and the pub-lic wiu not given liny hint of what the plans were. However, It was under--t stood to be the opinion of the finan-ciers that If any loan to (iermuny were arranged, It must be very large, prob-ably at least a biliion 'dollars. nlso seemed likely that It would be neces-sary, In that case, for Belgium ( sitr-- l render partially her priority on man rcpurutlob's, for Great Britain to cans win ogam ,nave yearly naif the seats notwithstanding the fact i that they represent less than 20 per cent of the electorate. The British govern-ment Is much exercised by the status ot affairs, realizing that the treaty Is in danger. Whatever condition of temporary pence may obtain In southern Ire-land, the warfare between that part of the Island and Ulster has ac-quired new vigor, due to the outrages perpetrated by Sinn Fejners. Among these was the murder of a member of the Ulster parliament. This so en-raged the Belfast government that 300 Sinn Fein leaders all that could be caught In the Ulster counties were' seized in surpnse tu!w uAJ tiirTC Into prison. Premier Craig told parlia-ment forcible action was demanded, and he Issued a regulation declaring that, membership In the republican army was an offense In Itself. His energetic measures did not stop the operations of the Inmibers and snipers. AT LEAST one Interesting fight may be expetied at every convention of the American Medlcul association. In last week's sessions of the organiza-tion In St. Louis the contest arose over the practice of "group medicine" or clinics. The committee on amendments to the constitution proposed new sec-tions declaring against this practice, which, however, cannot be ucted on for one year. Immediately afterwurd an-nouncement was made of the organ-ization of the Association of Group Clinics of North America, an Indepen-dent medical association.
