Figh t for League
Johnson Back to Lead in
Contest: ''Bitter End"
Senators Rally Forces
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, The "irre
concilables" in the Senate planned to?
day to renew their fight for the
adoption of textual amendments to the
league of nations covenant when the
Senate takes up th" peace treaty in
open ses ion again Monday.
Senator Johnson, of California, re?
turned to Washington to-day from a
campaign tour of the middle West and
announced that he intends to pres3 his
amendr.-. ! giving the United States
an equai ?.?.?aber o? votes in the league
assembly and council with the British
Empire when the treaty again is con?
"The letter of Viscount Grey," said
Scnatoi Johnson, "which, of course,
under English diplomatic usage is the
offlcal declaration of the British Em?
pire, demonstrates that Great Britain
is ready t? give to our republic the
equality of representation and voting
power which, certain Americans in their
zeal for British interests have denied
"Of course, now when Great Britain
says to the gentlemen who ' so
enthusiastically have demanded that
Great Britain should have six times as
many votes as the United States, that it
is willing that there should be an
equality in the league, 1 assume there
no longer will be opposition to the
amendment which long ago I introduced i
and which was defeated by two votes |
in the Senate.
Predicts Amendment Will Pass
"I shall have the amendment brought
up again, and now that Great Britain
so generously accords the equality
which some Americans have been loath
to take, tlii' amendment doubtless will
pass with pat iotic unanimity. Seri
ously speaking, though, it is a sad
thing to contemplate that these many
months of fighting for the equality in
the league of our great nation can only
bring the deairod consummation with
the consent of the British Empire."
The Grey letter ,\:so was attacked by
Senator Poindexter, of Washington, an?
other candidate for the Republican
nomination for President, and, like
Senator Johnson, an "irreconcilable."
Senator Poindexter, in a formal state?
?'Nothing could better illustrrte the
growth of internationalism in the
United States than the remarkable in?
fluence which has been exerted in this i
country by the letter of Viscount Grey.
"It seems that a large number of j
people in this country, including many |
Senators, are inclined to take a differ- '
ent view of the reservations in the in?
terest of the independence of the
United States since they have found ?
that Great Britain has no objection to i
Peace Propaganda Criticized
"There is no doubt that the propa?
ganda carried on to a great extent
throughout the country by the League
to Enforce Peace and various interna?
tional organizations has greatly im?
paired the old spirit of nationalism.
It would seem from the effect of Lord
Grey's letter that those who have been
putting forward the league of nations
and insisting upon its ratification
without change are more concerned to
please Great Britain than they are to
protect the interests of the United
"I suppose now that the British gov?
ernment, whose opinion is supposed to
he represented by Lord Grey's state?
ment, has given its approval to the
reservations adopte:! by the Senate
that many of those wlift heretofore op?
posed them will change front boldly
and follow the lead of the British gov
! "This apparent, willingness to accept
the leadership of a foreigner in a ques?
tion which involves American inde?
pendence is entirely consistent with
the cntiro league of nations program."
Senator Poindexter declared if the
i Senate ratified the treaty with the res?
ervations the United States "will be?
come again one of the federated Brit
? ish states."

London Press Not Sure
Grey Has Saved Treaty
Hope Senate "Voir Will Take
Favorable Action Combined
With Fear of Overconfidence
LONDON, Feb. 4. Some newspapers ;
hero give prominence to dispatches
from America which declare that Vis- ?
count Grey's recent statement as to the j
American attitude on the league of j
nations has effected a radical change i
regarding the treaty on both sides of '
the United States Senate. A New York
dispatch to "The Daily Mail" says, '
among other things, "now there is ?
every prospect of speedy ratification."
There is little comment, but "The
Telegraph." while "sincerely hoping
the Senate is about to take action in a
form which will aliow renewed co?
operation by the United States in the j
great, task laid upon the civilized
World," warns its readers to beware of
overconfidence. It says high hopes of
compromise and a happy "nding have j
been "raised more than once and come
to nothing." The paper holds Pre.si- !
dent Wilson responsible, to a great ex- I
tent, for the delay in ratification of the

he believed himself deceived by the
opinion of Europe and was acting und

Public Seems Indifferent
Comment by the French, press and;
the altitud-' of the public in general
before this morning's developments in- ]
dicated the utmost indifference toward;
the demand for the extradition of the ;
Germans, although some of the names ,
were those of men accused of deeds
which during the war aroused the most ',
intense indignation of virtually the en- j
tire population of France. While it I
cannot be said thai France has for- |
gotten the happenings which form the
basis of the accusations, the great de- .
lay in the peace negotiations and the i
slowness O? the reconstruction work;
have created a feeling of indilTerer.ce
with everything connected with the j
peace deliberations not dealing with j
the economic revival.
Tiie general opinion, as expressed
in the public press, seems to be that
France is not so anxious to receive i
. m is faction concerning the punish?
ment of the guilty persons as she is to
get coal in order to be able to produce|
goods for export. In other words, as
une commentator ? xpresses it, she
would rather receive from Germany
the 27,000,000 tons of coal promised
yearly under the Versailles treaty than

List of War Criminals
Kept Srcret for Present
LONDON, Feb. 4. The understand?
ing in diplomatie circles here is that
the official list of German war crimi?
nals will not be published before the

man government. The question as to
whether thej should be published im?
mediately is said to have raised a con?
siderable debate at Paris, since one
of the Allies desired that t h i 3 course
The decision finally was reached
that it would not b^ politic to publish

was notified, and, furthermore, that it
would be unwise to give the accused
individuals notice that their names
were included, thereby allowing them
a chance to flee to Holland or other?
wise take refuge.
The recent publication in London of
the photographs of some of these Ger?
mans after their names had leaked out
is characterized in diplomatic circles
as a highly un. dig:: i tied proceeding.

BOSTON, Feb. I. The peace treaty

James A. Reed, of Missouri, and I ?avid
1. Walsh, of Massachusetts, in addresses
at a mass meeting in Tremont Temple
to-night. The two Senators did not.1
agree, however, in their views as to
what action the Senate ought to take.
Senator Reed declared "the only way

ought not to hi' ratified "without the
strongest possible American reserva?
The greater part nf Senator Reed's
address was devoted to an analysis of
the recent letter of Viscount Grey with
regard to the league.
"All Americans," he said, "may well
hang their heads when they contem?
plate tlie frlct that a ?arge part of the
American government hi.s been ?nsi t
ing upon giving the British Frrtpire ad?
vantages in the league so unfair to the
United States that a British statesman
lifts his voice in protest.
"They talk about Americanizing the
league by reservations. The league
takes us into Europe, puts us in Euro?
pean politics and keeps us in European
politics. How can an instrument of
that kind be Americanized by resi rva
lions? All a reservation can do is to
limit our obligations, buf in so far as
we assume them they are European
obligations. The only way the league'
can be Americanized is to take America i
en ti re! v out of it."
Senator Walsh said thai the treaty
hid not been ratified without reserva?
tions because of "its inhumanity, us,
betrayal of solemn pledges given to
our people by the American government
during the war, and its complete dis?
regard of the plans for reorganization
proclaimed by President Wilson in
celebrated fourteen points.
