INDEMNITY REPLY SENT BY GERMANY Offers 200 Billion Marks in Counter Proposals Given American Envoy. Berlin. ~ The German count i?r-pl'O- posals on reparation were presented to Ellis~ Loving Dressel. the American oommissioner here, rind were ilulne- diately transmitted to ~he United States. The payment by Germany of 200,- 090,060,0~0, gold marks for reparations is, roughly, the proposal submitted by Germany for transmissiou to the allies. The payments will be spread over a period of ~rom thirty to forty-two years, or less, according to Germany's economlc .recovery. :~conomic pledges in Ihe way of goods and participation iu Germany in- dustries are offered as guarantees, it is stated. The offer, it ts indicated, inclines more toward the terms fornmlaied by the allies at the Paris confexeuce last winter than towards the offer m~de by Germany at the London conference which the allies summarily rejected. Germany's counter proposals refrain from proposing the assumption by O'er. many of the allied debts to the United States. The allies, under the decision reach- ed at Paris in January, demanded tidal Ge~tmany pay 226,000,000,000 gold marks, or approximately $56,50(},000,- 000, the payments to be spread over a period of forty-two years. Germany's exports, in addition would bear an ex- port duty o~ 12 per cent, to go to the allies for an identical period. COUNCIL MEETING CALLED NEw German Proposals to Be Heard, If on Hand.

SII EL FU RIB [Ri 2.6 Per Cent Increase in Last Decade Is Smallest Ever Recorded.' ~'ashing'ton, D. C.--Germany, At~s- trla, Ireland and Russia, natives of which made up more than 59 per cent of the country's total foreign-born ten years ago, showed heavy losses in the number of their natives in the United States during the last ten years, ac- cording to census bux'eau statistics. These losses aggregated almost 2,- 000,000 and were believed to have been due largely to the world war. : German-born sinewed a loss of $18,- 035, Austrian-born a lo~s of 600,014, Irish-born a loss of 316,571 and Rus- I sian-born a loss of 203,783. Notwithstanding this heavy loss, the country's total foreign-born pop- ulations, as just annoa~tced in a pre- liminary statement prepared for con- gross, showed a.n increase of 358,442, or 2.6 per cent, the total number of foreign-born being 13,703,987. The in- crease was believed to have been the smallest: both in uumber and percent- age ever recorded for any decade. In the previous decade, 1900-10, the in- crease was 3,174.610, or 20.7 per cent. Germany led as the country of birth of the foreig~-born in the United States ten years ago with a total of more than 2,500,000. and still leads, although the number was reduced to 1,683,818. The standing of other countries in the foreign-born population of the United States has changed ~omewhat from ten years ago. Italy has taken second place from Russia with an in- crease of 264,333 in the ten years and a total for 1920 of 1,607,358. 'Russia has taken third place from Ireland, bu.t showed a decrease of 203,- 783. Natives of Russia in the United States numbered 1,389,999. Poland has gone into f~urth ])lace Iwhich was occupied by Italy, with an increase of 195,797, bringing her total to 1,1'39,575. Ireland, which has showed decreases in each decade since 1890, had a larger decrease during the last decade than in any previous one, the loss ha~,ing been 316,571. The total number of Irish-born in the United States in 1920 was 1,035,680, ranking that country fifth. IIMMIGRATION BILL I 1 PASSED BY HOUSEI[ I Washington, D. C.~After rejecting an amendment seeking to admit to the United States foreign political refu- gees, the house passed the immigra- tion reetrlotion bill substantially the same aa it went through last The bill now goes to the senate, where republican leaders said it would be passed without delay. The measure is designed to be o1~ perative for 14 montbE and would limit the entry of aliens to 3 per vent of the number of nationals of any country tU the United States at the time of the 1910 census. Three amendments were adopted by the house. One would permit admls- sion in excess of the 3 per cent. limit of all aliens subpected to religious per. of a~l aliens subjected to religious pe~ secution in their native laud and seek- ing refuge here solely to avoid such hardships. The second would admit children of American citizens ander 18 years of age, ilulependent of the percentage of limitation and the third would give preference to the families and rel~ tires of American citizens and ex- service men honorably discharged from the army or navy regardless of whether they had been naturalized, in determining lhe question of admis. sibility under the restricted total.
