SEHBIAN PRENIER L
Dr. Vesnitch Says France, England R
and Russia Disposed of 'Serbian
Paris, Jan. 4.-"'France, 'England
and Russia, in their treaties with
Italy and Rumania, disposed of Ber- ci
bian rights," said Dr.' -M. t. Vesnitch, p
Aremier of Serbia, today'in ahl hter- si
V'iew given the Associated Press. n
"Rumaula lost her bargain when t<
. she began peace negotiations with the 0
Central Powers in 191, ' ' con- s;
'tinued. "Does the treaty -of 1915 -be
tween Italy and France, England and 5
Russia, regarding the Eastern Coast P
of the Adriatic still stand in interna- 0
tional law?" d
"There are two facts which would
-seem to negative this question. Ameri- c
,a entered the war after the signing f
-of the treaty. She came in as the I
avowed enemy of secret treaties and c
'the Entente accepted that principle. E
Further, at the time of the signing c
of this treaty, Italy wants the terri- (
tory in question as a protection against I
slavish domiiation, backed by Russian
power. 'But, with the political up
heaval in Russia, this situation has
disappeared. The time is over, it
seems to me, when an imperialist pol- I
icy might be favored in Europe.
"Why should not the nations of the
Balkans have the same rights as the
"At the peace conference there will
be represented four different kinds of
'First, those who entered the war
with the idea of domination;
Second, those who entered it with
high ideals, like America, and,
'Third, those who entered it as a
business proposition. Unhappily for
Serbia those nations surrounding her
belong to the last named class.
"I believe that Serbia will demand
to know on what basis she enters the
peace conference and I think that in
so doing she will have the assistance
of America. President Wilson has
announced that the United 'States
came into the war to abolish secret
ireaties, If America enters the con
'ference with such treaties to be con
-sidered, then what iwill the people
-of the world think?
"What credit will be given in fu
-ture to those speaking on behalf and
in the name of the United States?
"Some of these treaties were made
-with reference to nations who were
-not consulted and the governments
-concluding them had no right to dis
'pose of peoples not their own."
In the first portion of the foregoing
interview, cabled on Saturday night,
Dr. Vesnitch declared that if the
treaty of 1915, by Which Italy twas to
come into possession of the Eastern
Coast of the Adriatic should be con
firmed 'by khe peace conference, "then
Serbia would ?fight again, and fight
again, and ilght to the finish."
lie added, "Serbia did not enter this
war to become the vassal of any na
tion. She cannot agree to have Italy
control the territory in question." He
added, however, that ho believed the
presence at the conference, of the
'United States, wvhich had already de
clared against secret treaties and in
favor of the rights of small nations,
assured "fair play."

apublican Critics of President Scored. e
Plain Word& Spoken. Illinois Sen
ator Declares that Effort is Being
Made to Discredit Woodrow Wilson. I
Washington, Jan. 2.-'Republican
ritics of 'President Wilson and his a
Dace terms were attacked in the a
mnate today .by Zenator Lewis of Illi
ols, the Democratic whip. Replying
recent addresses of Senators Lodge
f Massachusetts and Knox of Penn
VIvania, Senator .Lewis charged that C
certain leaders on the UeilubUcai a
ide" had conspired for political pur
ose to discredit the president in the
yes of European negotiators and to 0
efeat his plans. II
The Illinois senator was unable to
onclude his speech today,. bht will n
nish tomorrow, after which Senator h1
lorah of Idaho, Republican opponent t,
f a league of nations, plans to reply; c
ienators Thomas of Colorado, Demo- r
rat, and Cummins of Iowa, Republi
an, also expect to discuss peace and o
elated questions tomorrow.
Senator Lewis said he did not ob- r
ect to Senators Lodge and Knox u
'qualifying for the support of Colonel I:
loosevelt and his following for the
iomination for president," but that he
lid object to "the country being de
3eived as to the design and the presi
lent of the United States dishonored
by false political pretenses to accom
plish the purpose."
Declaring that the president's Re
publican critics in the senate had fail
ed to utter one sword of satisfaction at
the safe arrival of the president over
seas or of the great honors being
showod him by European rulers and
peoples, senator Lewis said it was not
too much to believe that they would
not have been displeased to find the
president's name In the casualty lists.
"Nothing he has attempted but is
condemned," declared Senator Lewis,
referring to President Wilson; "noth
Ing he has spoken or accomplished
has been praised or indorsed."
Senator Lewis read from speeches
and statements by fSenators Lodge and
Knox in an effort to ,;how that their
present attitude is inconsistent with
tha4 they assumed in regard to
President McKinley's action relative
to a peace protocol with Spain in
1898, and President Roosevelt's course
as to the peace arrangement growing
out of the uprising in China'in 1901.
The policy pursued by President Wil
son, he said, is identical with that of
Presidents McKinley and Roosevelt.
-During debate, precipitated by Sen
ator Lewis' speech, Senator Borah, re
ferred to statements of a leading Jap
ancee statesman, declaring that Japan
would not enter any league which did
not place the people of that country
on an equal -basis with those of other
countries. Sonator Borah said the
United States could hardly agrre to
such a proposition iwille Chairman
Hitchcock of the senate foreign rela
tions committee dnelared this was a
domestic and not an international
qulestion and would nIot comel witin
tile scope of thle league of nations.
Senator florah said 11e believed
Chlina wvould take the same attiude as
.Japan on the citIZenship question and~
tihat if it did an "oriental league"
mighlt result, bringing about "circum
stances more calculated to bring wvar
thlan to plrevent it."
