The fire began in the ceiling it it a a disarmament �0�feriu to seethe in Washington like guesses about probable a Abl net appointments. It is a reflection of the importance of til conference which increases Here every Day. With Secretary Hughes and senator Lodge already Colum the Burden of the most dependable guessing centers rot senator Knox Tif Pennsylvania and senator Underwood of a i. Bama. For the fifth place of five should be the number ultimately decided on. Speculation is divided Bette i sex senator George Sutherland of i Tah and Elihu Hoot with tile prevailing opinion slightly favouring the former there a been a suggestion that both the number of delegates and the persons to be chosen May be affected by the possibility of making the delegation a sliding panel. A this is meant a delegation in which i two or the sit permanently but which As to the remaining seats Are i filled Ivy different persons from tim to time. Depending upon what ques t ions come up. The institution of a sliding panel i was followed by some of Tinati a at the Paris conference advantage of being Able to the most expert ability on Jet As it comes up i or exam id when a military question is up a military Man sits on the delegation. When naval matter come up the military leaves for the moment and a intake his place. Whet lilt has the command each Suo a Man $2800 Man would or anything will come of this suggestion of a sliding panel is probably wholly in the hands of Secretary Hughes to whom the president has Foi malty turned Over All such details of met Hod of conducting the concer to the irreconcilable the republicans Nal in Derwood Ssu port of nations was the i mud More formal perfunctory position of a Man merely following his party s program. Another aspect of the manner of conducting the conference which receives increasing consideration is that of the degree of openness attending the deliberations. The expressions of american Public opinion favourable to sessions which shall be As open As those of the United states Senate grow constantly stronger. It it a a straight Issue i Jet Ween open sessions and closed sessions no one doubts How overwhelmingly american Public opinion would express itself in favor of open sessions. This demand will be the stronger insofar As the bulk of tin american delegation and the foreign delegations As Well May turn out to be men who however High their qualities. Have not happened to become fixed in the Public mind As believing strongly Iii both til desirability Aud the practicability of disarmament. In this conference the psychological ele ment that May be called the wish to succeed will by Mon important than in Ordinary conferences. On another aspect of the conference suggestions recently mad in the direction of extending the scope of it Are obviously not Well received by the 1 administration. A suggestion that there should be a concurrent conference of Bankers and economists to consider Means of stabilizing International Exchange has been More or less officially frowned upon.
