said the British Prime Minister, “that as the result of this conference we have created a system of arbitration, of examination, of revision, which will enable both them and us to observe the working of the Dawes plan; to watch projects that may be doubtful in their effects and to come together in a sincere desire to rectify mistakes so soon as those mistakes are discovered."

In his reply the French Premier said: “France is happy in seeing that you have accepted to write on the front of the London document this idea of arbitration which we all hope will be generalized in order to substitute for the atrocious rule of war a régime of conventions based upon right and legality.”

The American Ambassador concurred with the following statement: “There is one feature of this settlement which I wish to emphasize, and that is the recognition and furtherance of the principles of arbitration for settlement of international disputes. In my opinion, the greatest hope for

of the world lies in arbitration and judicial settlement between nations, and I am very glad this conference has contributed so much to forward this plan.”

The conference closed with an expression of hope on the part of the German Chancellor that “the principle of arbitration, to which other speakers have referred, may evermore be applied in regulating the relations of the different peoples to each other, and thus help to establish a better adjustment of affairs."

Postscriptum The contract for the loan of 800,000,000 gold marks to Germany under the Dawes plan was signed at London on October 10, 1924 (New York Times, October 11, 1924). On October 13, 1924, the Reparation Commission approved a series of decisions to give effect to the terms of the loan and declaring that all conditions attached to the Dawes plan had been complied with and that the plan is now legally binding on Germany (New York Times, October 14, 1924). Subscriptions to the loan were opened on October 14 and it was at once oversubscribed (New York Times, October 15, 1924).
