Montpeller, June 1, The trains on tho
Central Vermont railway are late moro or
less every day and according to tho best
information that can he secured the cause
Is due to the poor coal. It appears that
tho trouhle originated when the ne,w sup
ply of coal reached White River Junction
and later when It camo to Montpeller. For
a time, only trains leaving the southern
terminal wero late, but now It Is said
to have bocome general. The. freight serv
ice Is considerably Impaired by the
The passenger tniins ran quite a little
late. This afternoon the fast afternoon
train was delayed at Montpeller Junction
about 40 minutes while tho men cloaned
the fire nnd got tho train In shape to
make time. It is understood that experts
are working In an effort to ascertain the
reason why the- engines do not steam
with this new coal.

In the debate to-day the Democratic
Senate leaders counselled delay and tried
in vain to put the decision over unti' he
next session of Congress. Scarcely a voice
was raised In our and out advocacy of ae

amend the resolution so that the request
ed authority would be given, only 12 sen
ators, all of them Democrats, voted in
the affirmative. Recorded against the mo

they argued was advisable because of the
peace deadlock, the minority leaders had

resolution, Senator L'nderwood of
Alabama, the Democratic leader, de
clared it would bo "equally Inoppor

until the details of peace had been
worked out. The nation, he argued
eould not properly decide whether it
wanted to take such n responsibility
until It hnd decided finally the greater
qim'tlnn of whether It should join iho
league of Nafions.
Senator Walsh of Montana and several
other Democrats declared the foreign
relations committee hail drafted tho res
olution hastily and that many pertinent
questions as to the nature and scope nf
tho contemplated mandate had not been
answered. In reply Senator Lodge, Massa
chusetts, the Republican lender, pointed
out that n sub-committee had made an
exhaustive investigation of the Armenian
situation before the President's request
"I do not desire," sHld Senator Lodge,
"to have this country give to the world
the Impression that It does not sympathize)
with the Armenian people. They are a
gallant people, I think they deserve aid.
But there arc many ways to give them
aid without involving the United States."
