the funding of tile French war debt.
A note signed by the finance minister

Washington, Jan. 3.—Officials here
apparently see hopeful tendencies ill the

British foreign office to deny that such a
suggestion might be forthcoming was
noted, with grent interest. During their
recent intricate stages, .the debt discus
slobs had been kept-entirely'confldenttat,'
but officials evidently have hoped for
