Says Treaty No Scrap of Paper.  Lloyd George Declares Germans May Talk But They Must Obey.   War Guilt is Considered.  Premiers' Conference at Brussels Agrees To Take Up Matter Anew at the Spa Meeting - Italian Demands Vexing.  

Brussels, July 7 - The allied supreme council adjourned its normal session after failing to agree on the division of the German reparation.  The premiers' conference agreed on a plan to consider anew at the Spa meeting the question of German war guilt.  The allied council is divided as Italy is dissatisfied with its percentage and is expected to object strenuously.  Then there is only 3 per cent left for Japan, Romania, Portugal, Poland, Montenegro and other nations.  Lloyd George, Mitterand and Delacroix, Belgian chairman of the conference, drew up the following tentative allotment of reparations:  France, 62 per cent; Britain, 22; Belgium 8; Serbia, 5 or 5 =.  Italy's share at least tenth.  Italy is to receive at least 10 and Japan surely 1 per cent, leaving 1 = or 2 percent divisible among little powers and all the rest of the nations that declared war against Germany.  Premier Delacroix of Belgium will preside at the Spa conference.  There the allies will tax the Germans with non-fulfillment of important portions of the disarmament clauses of the treaty.  "We reached complete agreement regarding the allotment of the reparation, even on the amount which the United States will receive," said Lloyd George, entering his hotel after the conference.  Asked if Germany would be allowed to discuss question on equality with the allies at Spa he replied: "Germans cannot discuss the merits of the treaty or treat if as a scrap of paper.  They can discuss only execution of it and make suggestions for carrying out its terms."  What is American Share?  A member of the reparations commission who is here said he knew nothing about the amount of reparation for the United States being fixed.  The American government never asked any reparation, following the principles of President Wilson and it is not believed reparation is asked by the United States or will be accepted.  Sforza, Italian representative said that the Italian reparation was not fixed and the other allies had not met Italy's demands.  Lloyd George is trying to solve the Italian difficulty with the proposal that Britain shall guarantee the payment of the Italian debt to America

Adj. General of State Here To Muster In Men For Company of State Guards. 

Adjutant General Dewese of Frankfort was in the city last Saturday to muster in the boys who enlisted in the company of state militia that is being formed.  The number appearing for enlistment disappointed those who have the matter in charge.  Only about twenty out of a hundred who had promised to be present showed up.  Those who have worked to get the organization perfected have not given up but will continue their efforts.  Since Saturday about fifteen have signed up.  It only takes a few more now and the company will be ready to be sworn into service.  They hope to have the required number by the end of the week.  Lieut. Brinkly Gooch, Jean Jasper and Lieut. Shadoan have the matter in charge and any one desiring to enlist should see them.

Editorials.  People who pay taxes like to see where their money is going.  They do not mind bearing their part of the expense of running the government if they can see the money being judiciously spent.  Somerset needs better streets and needs them as badly as any town we know of.  If the special tax imposed on all the people will give us better streets there will be no kicking.  But if the money is spent and we still have no streets then there will be a howl.  In addition to the tax on trades and occupations we are in favor of the Council levying a 10 per cent tax levy on all tax payers of the city.  This will add quite a little revenue for street work and will distribute the burden of taxation on everyone.  As it is now many of the people who use the streets more than anyone else do not pay any tax at all to help keep them up.  We must have better streets at any expense.


The new traffic ordinance has gone into effect.  In fact it has been law for nearly two months but the police officials have not undertaken to enforce it until this week.  We are glad they have awakened to the great and growing need of some regulation of the automobile traffic.  There is entirely too much reckless driving, unnecessary noise and a total disregard for the rights of pedestrians.

Traffic Ordinance.  The police are enforcing the new traffic ordnance passed by the City Council on April 8th.  It has just been printed and is being circulated.  Certain places have been designated for parking as follows:  West Mt. Vernon St. from Public Square to Church St., East Mt. Vernon St. from Maple to Tucker and Godby Store.  West and South side of Newtonian Hotel and West side of Masonic Building.  All vehicles shall be parked at 45 degrees with the rear wheels at the curb.  No person shall operate an automobile over 15 miles per hour on any street in the city and only eight miles an hour at intersections and crossings.  It is against the law for any person under sixteen years of age to drive a car in the city unless accompanied by their parents. It would be well for every car owner to get a copy of the law and read it carefully.  The police will enforce the law to the letter.


Gilmore.  Mr. H.W. Gilmore, one of the most highly respected citizens of the county, died at his home near Somerset last Tuesday night.  His death was very sudden.  He had been working on his farm all day and was feeling well up to ten minutes before his death.  He was 57 years of age and was born in Pulaski.  He lived on the old home place.  At the hour of going to press the time of the funeral had not been decided upon, but it was though it would be Saturday afternoon at the home, conducted by Rev. W.L. Clark, pastor of the Methodist Church.  Interment will follow in the city cemetery.  Mr. Gilmore leaves a wife and five boys and one girl.  He has two sisters and one brother living, Mrs. J.E. Girdler, Somerset, Mrs. John Detherage, Washington, Ill., and Willie Gilmore, Portland, Oregon.  There was no man in the county better known and more respected than Mr. Gilmore.  He was a splendid citizen and a progressive farmer.  His death was a shock to the entire community.



Dunn.  Mr. John Dunn of Junction City, Ky., age 77 years, a cousin of Jim Dunn of Somerset, died at his home last Saturday and his remains were brought here Sunday for burial.  There were short services at the grave.  Mr. Dunn formerly lived at Barren Fork and was well known in this section.  He had been ill for some time.
