the. opening game of the world series

ity to come back at the Reds whenever
called on by Manager Kid Gleason.
Cicotte. with nearly thirty victories to
his credit this season, is carrying the
hopes of the Chicago fans on his

victory in two and possibly three of
the remaining games. The master of

great pleasure with which the queen and he are coming to its shores
at the invitation of President Wilson.
"The king brings to this nation of friends testimony of the

selves at the head of organizations for relieving the suffering of
war. i

London, Oct. 2. Upon the result

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
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."

prospects for a settlement.

Administration Draws First
' Blood in Treaty Fight.
Vote Today Considered as Test
of Strength.
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
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.
