Senate Decides on no More De

Washington, Oct. 3.-After a three
hour discussion of the peace treaty,
the dominant note of which was a
sharp attack on President Wilson, the
senate late today decided on a breath
ing spell until Monday, with indica
tions that the decision would embrace
the provisions under which the Chin
ese province of Shantung was award
ed to Japan.
The attack on the President was
made by Senator Jones, republican, of
Washington, who had expected to
speak two days ago. In charging that
the President "had done more to un

the "attempt to coerce" the senate
ratification of the treaty without
amendment embodies the spirit of the
mob and Justifled lawlessness.
The President's friends should tell
him plainly and bluntly and promptly
that the treaty has no clqance of rati
fication in its present form, said the
senator, who added "and they will
do so when he is able to receive it."
Senator Thomas, democrat, of Colo

Senator Johnson, republican, of Call

that Great Britain, inclusive of her

opponents of the league covenant to

is entirely too much said by self-ap
