Mr. Scott failed to s'ee why anadlan roads .should accept awards of commissions across; he line.

Prior to ths appointment ot the rail- way board, the railways were left largely to themselves as to rates.

Proposal Not Accepted He pointed out that the allies sug- gested to the soviet that they declare a truco Monday at midnight but this was not accepted iii view of the Minsk meeting set for Wednesday. He de- clared there had been great anrt sus- picio'us delays in .coming to a dtecus- Eton of an armistice. He could not imagine, the premier said, why it is there had not beeu a real desire to have an armistice and negotiate peace, the Bovlet government would not hate, fixed date at the latest a week or ten days ago for that -purpose. The premier continued: "We are iut going to have a quarrel or pro- pose to engage this country In a dis- pute, whether it means much or little upou the difference between Monday and Wednesday and there tlie alli'js are agreed.'- Continuing his outline of the decis- ions reached at the Hythe confer- ence, the premier said: "If they negotiate an agreement at Minsk we do not propose to intervene to-upset any arrangement which is acceptable to the Pole. It is.their affair. I sin- cerely trust it will mean peace, but supposing it dirt not, we have got to face that." If the Minsk conference failed be- cause the Poles refused Io accept terms which the soviet was entitled to exact, having regard to the way in which the conflict started and to the Polish military condition, then the allies could not support Poland, the Bolshevik upon -threaten- ing the independence ot Poland, u different eituation would arise.

Xo allied troops would be cent to Po- land, he declared. It.would not be necessary, he said, if the Polish re- sources were thoroughly organized and directed. The next action, continued the pre- mier, would be to put economic pres- sure upon soviet Hussia, whether na- tional-action or international action. Substantial stores, he said, were available in that quarter of the world which the allies would feel obliged to send to Poland. 70 cents upon the 30 cents which was left being able to take care of the fixed .charges.
