RECORD VOTES ON
WASHINGTON, D. C Nov. 7. The
true state of affairs with respect
to a vote on the peace treaty can now
be revealed Both Republicans and
Democrats claim they are ready to re
spond to the demand of the country
Jor a final vote this month but every
effort to bring about an agreement
to set a date for the vote has tailed
because, as a matter of fact, the spirit
of compromise has not yet been recog
nized as absolutely necessary by the
extremists who think they can yet
defeat the whole treaty.
Briefly, the Republican management
offered to set a date on which the
t-eaty could be "finally disposed of."
Bv tnat they meant final jsction on
t.e ratifying resolution which con
tains the reservations proposed by the
senate fore'n relations committee.
The Democrats objected to the use of

Senator Hitchcock said the president
showed keen interest throughout the
conference and expressed Bis judg

The senator outlined the plan to
be followed in consideration of the
committee reservations and the presi

friends of the treaty to bring about a

The president indicated that any com
promise we thought necessary, which
would not serve to destroy the treaty,
would be satisfactory to htm. even If
the compromise reservations are em

Senator Hitchcock said he advised
the president that he expected "a
great parliamentary battle" over vot

was confident that a majority of the
senate was against killing the treaty
the words "final" because they be
lieved it would prevent them from
offering another ratifying resolution
if they constituded themselves into
the necessary one third to defeat the
senate foreign relation committee's!
Procedure Is Outlined.
So the procedure la going ta be
something Ilka this. The Republics ts
will press for a. vote on reservations
which will command a majority and
thus become a part of the rat'fylng
resolution Then the vote on that reso
lution, which requires two thirds, will
be defeated because the Democrats
consider man; of the reservations to"
be equivalent to amendments and as
requiring resubmission of the treaty
to foreign governments and necessit

The Republican would not oniv sedk
