English Government Optimistic Important Parleys on Today. Distributing Mail by Airplane Thruout the Kingdom. London, Oct. 2. Upon the result of three conferences today hangs the question of industrial war or peace in Great Britain Representatives of the railway men reassembled at Unity House at 11 a. m. to consult before their meeting with Lloyd George at noon, when negotiations a 91. tn t. reStl 1 iming at a settlement are to be resumed. While the railway men were in con ference, the Transport Workers' fed eration continued its meeting awaiting the result of the parley between Lloyd George and the striking delegates. If negotiations fail, . it is expected, the transport workers immediately will join the striking railway em ployes. In the meantime industrial stagna tion prevails in Great Britain. As a result of the strike's effect on other industries, 650,000 men are idle be sides the railroad employes. This number comprises 400,000 miners, 150,000 Iron and steel workers; 26,000 tin plate workers, 20.000 textile opera tives, 40,000 dock hands and 10,000 engineers. In government circles, it was de clared today that the railway men's return to the conference room after J Lloyd George's statement that he wouiq noi negotiate until worn was resumed, was tantamount to a confes sion of the strike's failure. The problem now is to find a solu tion which will enable the strike lead-ers-to "sr.ve their faces." The p fss is optimistic over the prospects for a settlement.

No one waa injur SENATE-REJECTS FALL AMENDMENT TO PEACE TREATY Administration Draws First ' Blood in Treaty Fight. Vote Today Considered as Test of Strength. SMITH URGES RESERVATIONS Georgia Senator Opposes the Amendments, However. Tells President Pact Won't Be Ratified Unless Reserved. Washington, Oct. 2. Taking its first action on committee changes in the peace treaty, the senate today rejected an amend ment by Senator Fall, Republi can, New Mexico, to eliminate the United States from member ship on the committee to de termine the boundary between Germany and Belgium. Second Also Voted Down. The second of the Fall amendments proposing to relieve the United States from participating in certain interna tional adjustment relating to Luxem burg was voted down without a roll call. Senator Smith, Democrat, Georgia, got the floor first and presented his reservations. Senator Thomas, Demo crat, Colorado; Lenroot, Republican, Wisconsin, and Spencer, Republican, Missouri, announced they would vote against the Fall amendments. Shows Senate Attitude. The vote, which generally was ac cepted as a test of the senate's attitude toward more than thirty other com mittee amendments of similar nature, was 58 to 30. Opposing textual changes necessi tating resubmission to Germany but declaring ratification without reserva tion to be impossible. Senator Smith proposed seven reservations to the treaty. They should be adopted, he said, to clear up "doubtful or objec tionable language." While only specifying seven reserva tions. Senator Smith said he believed "substantial modification" should be nlaced unon the labor provisions, but he withheld suggestions Because-omer senators contemplated proposing a reservation covering that provision. Senator Smith's first reservation is a substitute for the amendment of Sena tor Johnson, Republican, California, designed to equalize the voting power in both the assembly 'and supreme council under the League of Nations. The next three are similar to those re ported by the senate foreign relations committee affecting the right to with draw from the League, the Monrot doctrine and reserving the right this country to control its own in ternal affairs. Exclusion From Boycotts. The fifth reservation covers Article Ten and Senator Smith said the United States could not assume, under Article Ten or any other article, obli gations to preserve the territorial or political independence of any other country or, in case of controversies between other nations, to engage in economic boycotts. The reservation further provides that mandates cannot be accepted for this country without congressional approval. As new reservations Senator Smith proposed that the reparations com mission could not Interfere with com merce between the United States and Germany - except with this country's consent and that all persons filling positions created by the treaty must be appointed by the president with the senate's consent. Amendments to the League covenant also would be ratified by the senate. Serves Notice on Wilson. Smith served notice on President Wilson and administration leaders that if they want to get sixty-four votes for the treaty and League of Nations covenant, they must work for reservations and not against them.
