LONDON, April 14. The Paris correspondent of the "Observer" states that the Council of Four has agreed on all the fundamental questions. The solution of the Saar Valley problem was due to Mr Lloyd George's suggestion, which establishes autonomy similar to Luxemburg's, and is guaranteed by the League of Nations. The indemnity question has been settled on the basis of Germany being madjj responsible to all the Allied Powers for losses, including landed property, farming implements, shipping, and war pensions. After tho first instalment, payment will be spread over thirty years. Frame's claim to the Saar coalfields as part of the indemnity does not involve any accusation of annexation. "Le Matin" states that out of Germany's first instalment of 125 milliard francs, payable in gold credits abroad, France will receive seventy-five milliard.

The Council of Four decided that Heligoland should be dismantled and destroyed as far as possible. The Council of Ten dealt with a number, of smaller matters concerning economic and general provisions for inclusion in the treaty ; also an arrangement for the admission of Allied shipping to German ports.
