Debate On Treaties
Washington. Senate debate on1 the
The new Pope Pius XI has gone
thru the ceremony of being crowned
under the dome of St Peter Cathe
dral. The whole of the basilica was
crowded with people and many mora
on the outside who were unable to
get in. The papal blessing followed
the crowning, and the whole Catho
lic world was happy. The new Pop
has expressed a regret that the
American Cardinals could not be
present and much affection for the
American people, especially because
of their services during the war.
The presence of . American Cardinals
probably would not have altered the
result but it seems reasonable that if
American Catholic are to have Car
dinals at all they ought to have a
voice in so important a matter as the
election of a Pope. Pius XI assert
that he will not give up the tradi
tional claims to the papal lands, bat
will seek to reach an understanding
with the government of Italy, and
there is hope of a better feeling.
Th Washington Conference i now
a thing of the past The seven trea
t;es are signed by the delegate and
are now to go for ratification to
the countries concerned. President
Harding has already submitted them
to the Senate and in the speech made
on that occasion he urged the rati
fication of all the treaties, suggest
ing the naval disarmament treaty
for first consideration. A part of
the Senate, however, desire to con
sider the Four Power Alliance first
and there are some sign of discord
