sisted in payment of reparations by
Germany, with France holding the
Ruhr until satisfactory settlemen
was made and on guarantee of secur-
ity of an uprovoked attack. As for
the internal affairs of the country he
spoke for safe and sane, financial
measures, application of the fiscal re-
form just voted by the parliament and
stringent economy.
Regarding the German occupation,
the premier said:
Cannot Withdraw
"France cannot withdraw her troops
from the Ruhr except in proportion
to payments. She will. not exchange
positive pledges for uncertain prom-
ises, but she has firm hope that af-
ter the experts have handed in their
report, a general settlement and rap-
id liquidation of the reparations will
become positive.
"As soon as the work of the experts
has terminated, France will be ready
to study it and seek with our friends
to find the elements of a final sol-

cussing the financial situation.
"We must at all costs keep out of
our finances all the - germs. of in-

more when peoples can suit themselv-
es tranquilly at home, draw up thlr
budgets as they like and disinterest
themselves with their neighbors.; '
"Today there is no nation which is
not exposed to the curiosity of oth-

France by Lloyd George, the premier
"Victoriious France has never since

bition which is so willingly attributed
to her."
The declaration was received with
almost open hostility by the cham er
and respectful indifference by the
senate. In the chamber he was inter-
rupted, while after he had concluded
his statement in the senate, Sen Du-
plantier, radical, introduced a resol-
ution inviting the government to be-
gin its policy of economy by saving
the cost of printing the declaration.

Mr. Gabrilowitseh is a master mus-
ician, sure to the point of deliberation,
yet expressively alert to the possibil-
ity of every note. One need look no(
further than to him to find a marvel-I
ously beautiful and ready touch. Itsj
balance of tone, its exquisite legato,
I its lightness, and it potential power
are all that could be desired. No
technicality is beyond him; and the
most difficult passages are accom-
plished with fine fluency.
Care in the interpretation of de-
tails plays a great part in the em-
otional fervor which Mr. Gabrilo-
witsch puts into his playing, and'
which he calls up in his hearers. But

lade, indescribably brilliant in both

alternately lyric and dramatic, a love-

The Brahms Rhapsody, passionately
dramatic and of varying .thematic in-
terest, and two of Mr. Gabrilowitsch's

own compositions, one suggesting an

Bill Latnehetd By Senator McKellarl
Last Friday Against 'Treasury
head Not Aeted Upon
Washington, March 31.-A resolu-
tion designed to oust Secretary Mellon
from office on technical legal
grounds launched last Friday by Sen-1
ator McKellar, Democrat, Tennessee,}
bobbed up automatically in the senate
today only to land on the table with
no one demanding abtion upon it.
It was buffeted severely by Mr.
Mellon's Republican defenders and
Senator McKellar whose voice was the
only one urging it on its way. Wheth-
er it will be refloated later is a mat-
ter of dispute among senate Demo-
cratic chieftains, who conferred dur-'
ing the debate on the wisdom of pass-
ing it, while Senator Robinson. of
Arkansas, the Democratic leader who
returned to Washington after an ab-
sence of several days disclaimed re-
sponsibility for the move initiated by
the Tenesseean.
Senator McKellar declared he was
not charging Mr. Mellon with any
wrong doing or failure but merely in-
sisted upon enforcement of old stat-
utes forbidding the appointment as
federal fiscal officers of "men inter-
'ested ,or- concerned" in the carrying
on of commercial enterprises. Sen-
ator Reed, , Republican, Penna., who
lead the dlissenters, asserted from
personal knowledge that Mr. Mellon'
had divested himself of every com-
mercial and industrial connection
which could be questioned in any way
before he went to the Treasury.'
The names of the "'Mellon compan-
ies" were flung about in general
terms during the senate debate. Be-
fore the special senate committee in-
vestigating the internal revenue but-
eau. However, the intimate tax af-
fairs of the Gulf oil corporation in
which Mr. Mellon is a minority stock-!
holder were aired in detail.
Sparks flew in the committee room
between Senator Couzens, Republi-
can. Michigan. director of the inquiry,
and Senator Ernest, Republican, Ken-
tucky, who sprang to the defense of I
the treasury head when Senator
Couzens started a line of inquiry that
the Kentucky senator insisted looked
like the committee was."after Mellon."
