With the Republicans of the For eign Relations Committee buckling down to hard work and reviewing the treaty In executive session line by line great dissatisfaction with their Demo cratic colleagues' Inattention to this vital, If burdensome, duty is being manifested. Democratic indifference the Shantung settlement, may be Intro duced shortly. Senators considering such action are not ready even to outline It further than to say It would express dissatisfaction with the settlement, and express the opinion that this case should receive the early attention of the league mid be adjusted In accordance with prin ciples of international Justice. With st'Cli an expression. It Is believed by men who talked with him, the President would be entirely In accord. The President feels that among the Important features nf the league Cov- would perhaps be a more acourute errant is the provision ror uiarussioi o. unntuu nihtiiutt.1 LtmuiLn u. w iinirrmt the oouncll of the league. He believes description with only two or three members of the minority giving ear to the reading of the most Important document over considered by the com mittee. The Republicans seriously consider making a formal complaint of the Democratic conduct oh the Senate cot They (eel that this manifes tation of indifference Is quite In con sonance with the Democratic policy of "sign the blamed thing and get It over With," but they are angered by the lack of Interest displayed and feel that K public denunciation of such conduct la needed am a rebuke. This sugges tion was only discussed to-day. It may not be -followed out. Senators Kellogg (Minn). Kenyon fla.). Capper (Kan.) .and McNar; (Ore.) were the four Republicans at the White House for long conferences with the President to-day. It is under stood that the President explained In detail his firm opinion that reservations In the league covenant or the treaty would endanger the document for two rinelpsl reasons : First, because It would bring a distrust among the other nations of America's motives and, sec ond, because reservations by this coun try would undoubtedly start other na tions upon reservations, and effectively tear down the entire structure, making it literally a scrap of paper. The preliminary "It Is understood" la need In this connection because what the President says Is for the most part sacrosanct It is becoming Increasingly difficult to find out anything about the conferences When "at homes" were announced at the White House, and the first Republican Senators were Invited to conference, the President met bis eallere in the executive offices. ft ecr pt lor Wilson's Stadr. Newspaper men, as has been the age old custom, buttonholed them when they came out, the newspaper men having the freedom of the office lobby. For the last two days, however, the President has received his callers In the White House proper, In his study. tn years past reporters and even the public had the run of the White House grounds. President Wilson closed the grounds, and they were closed all during the war Yesterday newspaper men took the liberty of strolling up the great seml-etllptic driveway and Interviewing the Republican Senators who called. Tn-day they were definitely barred from the grounds. The Republican callers go to the house and out one of two east entrances. Reporters In the executive offloee cannot get near them If they see them at all it must be outside the gates, and It Is difficult to stop an automobile on the streets. Protest by some of the White House reporters to-day against the ban upon approaching the front door brought the Statement that It might embarrass the callers to be thus halted. Before the Wilson regime callers were egojiped without feint or favor. Foreign poten tates, officials, lob hunters and mere members of Congress were one and all the same. In his discussions with the Senators the President has stiessed this European situation very earnestly. He feels that trouble is likely to break out at any time, and almost anywhere. He con fessed that, knowing the situation as he does, he had come to pick up his news papers with a feeling of dread, lest he learn that something has broken out. His fears concern especially the minor and the new countries of the disturbed continent. He talked espe cially of Poland. Rumania, the Balkans and Cieeho-Slovakia In this connection. Another source of deep concern, he tr.dlcated, relates to the Far Fast. It was expected that China's peace delega tion at Paris would sign the treaty yes terday : but they did not. This fact was noted as highly Important and sugges tive. What this obstacle was has. not Wen Indicated by those who talked, with the President. si, no 1. 1 on Settlement. All the Senators who talked with the President feel that he Is highly dis pleased with the treaty's settlement of the Shantung case, but he lias urged, with much explanation of detail, that it was the best that he could obtain. He made them all realise that he had made the best fight of which he was capable for the preservation pf Chinese rights ; but In It he was entirely without the support of either France or Britain. It is believed, as a result of his em phatic expressions, that In tbs near fu ture the President will address either Congress or the country on this feature of the treaty. He realises that this has become one of the weakest points in bis armor. He is anxious that the Senate and the country shall understand Just how Insistently he supported the very news that Senators ur now urging against the settlement. On one particular point the President has made himself very plain. He is anxious that there be no reservations as to Article X. of the League of Nations covenant much less the elimination of that article such as would compel the treaty to be sent back to the other coun tries for acceptance of such reservations. This he considers as essential to tho es tablishment In the European mind of a conviction that America Is sincerely de Toted to the league. Article X. Is the provision that all the member Powers mutually guarantee one. another a sovereignty and territorial In tegrity. There has been suggestion of a reservation by which the United States should sgree to this for a limited period -five or ten years preferred during which the new States would have oppor tunity to get on their feet and the world to rehabilitate Itself. President's Belief. The President Is sure that this will not suffice to allay the fears of Europe. Moreover, It would be such an amend ment as would necessitate acquiescence y the other Powers. The International law authorities agree that a treaty rati fied with reservations by one of the contracting parties Is no treaty at all Until those ratifications be accepted af firmatively by the other parties. In tne ease of the Tiay-I'auncefote Treaty of 1900 the Senate adopted some reserva tions and thereupon England, being un willing to agree to them, regarded the treaty as dead, and entirely new nego tiations became necessary. Senators cams away with the Impres sion, as to Article 10. that the Presi dent would not particularly object to an that this consideration would be of great value In pVsetpitatIng a useful world opinion, even though the league will hrive no power to take a hand In purely domestic problems. I'ressed for His Optnlsa. On one point the President wsspioseed for expression of his opinion. That I the question of America's rlglrt . with draw at will from the league. Senator Bwafl son (Virginia) argued that thl country by giving notice of Intention to withdraw would be at liberty after twi years to do so anil that no power would rest In the league to keep it In. The other view Is that If the league council decided that the United Mates had Called to perforin all Its obligations under the covenant It could Insist that thli conn try could not quit till these were all exe cuted. The view Is that the league would have a distinct authority at this lint, The President's opinion was not very clearly Indicated by any of those who t ilked with him but the Impresator reamed to be tkat he did not approve the Hwanson view. The question has re cently become one of largo importance In the minds of Senators. Senator Capper (Kansas) toid th' President he favored the pi rposes of thi league, but would vote for reservation, which he dlecuased at some length. Hi said tie was committed to the general form of the reservation suggested by Senator Spenoer (Missouri), providing that under Article X. Congress should have the right to determine whether it should protect the sovereignty nnd tend tory of any member State. He also favored reservations as to the Monroi Doctrine and domestic questions, and re found that Article X. was the one giving the President special concern Further, Senator Capper very frankly told the President that In Kansas at hast sentiment is rapidly formulattni in opposition to the league. It was overwhelmingly for the pact at one time ; the opposition Is not gaining very fast The President said he was sure nils wa because the people did not fully under t'Unii the league and Its purposes. President's Attltade. The President assured his visitors that he did not seek to change their positions, but wanted to give them all the Informa tion he possessed about the genesis and features of the pact and the treaty. As tn the matter of withdrawal, he felt that for the United States to make a reserva tion on this point would be miscon strued by the other countries ss Indicat ing that we lacked confidence and faith in the league ; and he was very earnest in pointing out that Europe feels the need of the fullest support and coopera tion of America. He was very desirous that nothing stronger than "interpretive reservations" should be Insisted upon by the Senate, these to be In such form that they would not necessitate the resubmission of the treaty to the other countries for their I acceptance. Some of the Senators ex pressed doubt whether "Interpretive res ervations," without the acceptance of the other countries, would be of any use to the United States. Senator McNary said he found the President tn accord with his views eon uerning the nnd, suability of a reserva tion which would require reconvening of the Peace Conference, and that any reservation affecting any change in the meaning of the treaty would be objec tionable beca,UBe It would have that ef fect. The President took the position that reservations by this country would lead to requests by other countries for recon sideration of exceptions and qualifica tions which other countries have of fered and have already been rejected. Senator McNary told the President he disliked the Shantung settlement. The President made certain explana tions of ths.1: which 1 am not at liberty to discuss," said Senator McNary. "which considerably mitigated some of the harsh ness of that provlalon." Article X. and the clauses dealing with the Monroe noctrlne and domestic ques tions wero discussed, the Oregon Senatof outlining In substance the views which he Intends to present In a speech In the Senate next Tuesday, and with which the President appears to be in substantial agreement. The separate treaty with France was not mentioned. Senator McNary saio lie remains firmly opposed to Its ratification. MEXICANS GET ARMS BROUGHT FROM U. S.

No special ar rangement has been made by which arms and ammunition may be Imported by Mexico from the United States "for defensive purposes," It was said to-day at the State Department Mexico has been permitted to Import munitions for Its regular military forces and officials suggested that the bulletins posted in Sonorn probably had to do with the organisation of home guards for protection sgalnst small groups of bandits.

I Of training planes he said 1.70 were sola at 10 to 15 per cent, of cost. Some were in poor condition : some rather bet ter ; the manufacturers took them all Just as they stood. Nobody else would take them In large quantities. Mr, Wadsworth was asked whether It was necessary to sell In suae titles ; why not to Individuals.

There will be after September 1 only ISi officers In the Army Aviation Serv ice, and almost all these will be adminis trative. Senator Wadsworth (New York). Chairman of the Committee on Military Affairs, said perhaps It would be possible "to get ten or a dosen men able to fly," not more. Senator Thomas (Col) broached the subject, calling attention 'o a newspaper statement that airship stations In the Philippines, the Hawaiian Islands and Panama were to be abandoned, and ex pressing his keen concern about It. He attributed it to the fsct that the appro priation had been reduced to $26,000,000, and added that "so far as being of use for maintaining an adequate service that amount might as well have been sunk to the bottom of the ocean." The Senate Military Committee asked twice as much and the Senate appropriated 14'i,000,v00. The House would not con Bent, and (26,000,000 was the compro mise reached. Dangerous SUnatlaa Petered. "I believe In economy," he said, "but tm. im fule economv This country originated the aircraft and now Is hope lessly handicapped for want of these fa cilities in case of war. If Information which we receive Is correct, to the ef fect that the policy of watchful waiting on the Mexican border n about to end. serious troubles may follow there .ii any ,1m. , ,1 ih situation result. 1 want It understood at least that It is not the Senate that Is to blame for sucn a state of affairs." Senator Kail (N. M. ) sent to the desk and had read a letter from Gov. A. C. Larraxolo. pointing out the dangers which are confronted on the Mexican border In the present exigency. The letter follows: "Sakta Fx. July 11 I have this day received a letter from Hon. W. P. Hobby, (iovernor of Texas, as follows : Knowing the Mexlcgn situation as 1 do and believing that eome action by the United States Government with respect to conditions In Mexico and along the border will be necessr.iy In the near future. Tview with alarm the action of the War Department In demobilising and discharging all officers of the National Army which will practically wipe out the air service. To my mind It Is Im perative that Congress make some pro vision for a continuation In service of a ..icn'.er of the National Army officers until a permanent military policy has been eslaiiiisneu, as a woum ue im possible to get these trained officers upon whom the Government has Bpent millions of dollars, especially In the aviation branch, back into sen' ice after being discharged. Please wire your Senators and Representatives to aid in this matter.' "I agree with Gov. Hobby that the pollcv of discharging the officers of the National Army now on duty principally along the Mexican frontier la rather an Improvident one and that at least until matters In Mexico assume a permanently peaceful and orderly condition a suffi cient number of such trained officers and soldiers should be kept on duty along the border and this, as you can readily understand, as a necessary protection to our people and Interests. I therefore suggest to you the ad visability of conferring with the War Department and of calling the attention of the Secretary of War to this matter and to request that a sufficient force com manded by competent and trained offi cers be mslntalned along the Mexican border until such time as their further presence there is shown to be unnec essary." Responsibility Placed. "I have not seen the War Depart ment," Stnator Fall explained, "because I have been assured that Congress s failure to provide the necessary funds Is responsible for this condltlort of which these two GovemorB of border States complain." Senator Smith (Arlx) added ha had been to the War Department on the same matter. He had been told that every precaution would be taken to guard the border. "1 confess," he added, "that the letters I receive from the people on tho border show they are by no means satisfied with conditions and I know they are sincere and understand con ditions. At some later day I may have something to say of what I know about conditions in Mexico and the necessity to safeguard the lives and property both of Americans on the border and of other Americans who are within the Republic of Mexico by the Invitation of its Government." "If the troops we have on the bor der were ordered to end the raids there," declared Mr. Fall, "they would be abli to do it, even though there were not one tenth as many as there are. We have a border 1,400 miles long, but there are troops enough to protect It If only they were allowed to do so. But they arc under orders that they must avoid any conflict with whatever Mexican authority may claim at a given time to be domi nant in any particular part of Mexico Their faces are thus turned to the north, not to the south. They are attempting to prevent smuggling from this coun try into Mexico, but make no effort to prevent smuggling from Mexico into this cc.urtry. "It Is not generally known In this country, but It is true that at least twelve times In the last five or six months American troops have crossed the border pursuing bandits, and several times they have found that the dead bandits they killed wore the Carranxa uniform." Senator Wadsworth Explains. Senator Wadsworth explained the pre dicament of the aviation service, "We may as well face the facts," he said. "The appropriation for this service ass severely cut giving only 126,000,000. It leaves the aviation establishment a mere shell. By September 30 all emergency officers will have to be discharged In all branches, but It Is most serious In avia tion, because It la lmposslbls to replace men who can fly once they are out "After that date there will be only 212 officers In the air service, all adminis trative ; no fliers. Not over ten or twelve men could be found who could fly. We will have practically no flying service and 3,000 machines In various degrees of disrepair will be held in stor age." "If there is blame for this condition," Senator Fall Insisted, "it Is on Congress, not the Department."

By a Staff Correspondent of Tax Sty. topyright. 1X19; at right ISSSJirs'. Paris. July II. The departure from Paris of Marquis SalonJi and moRt of the Jupanesc delegation and staff deci sions no surprise, as the Japanese have not been taking nny part vlrtuall in the deliberation, of the Peace Confer ence here, except when questions affect ing Japan have been brought up. The Japanese showed plainly this afternoon that they were delighted to be able to return to Japan with such a diplomatic victory to their credit which everybody now concedes to them, but the Impression gained In diplomatic circles here Is that Japan has not helped her cause any by her Insistence on the Shantung concession, and among the European nations eho has now few if any friends. rritUMsm of the Shantung settlement and sympathy for China pervades all diplomatic circles and It will take more than Salonjl's valedictory In the Paris newspapers to dissipate this " feeling. After paying compliments to France for hei heroism the Marquis pointed ou' the necessity of all nations working to gether to make the peace treaty bear lis proper fruits. "More than ever there mur;t be courageous legislation and work ; more than ever the nations should remain firmly united," he said upon leaving. to Verite comments this morning upon an unofficial announcement by the Japanese press bureau which said the party was leaving for the Orient since the conference had approved Japan's policy In regard to China and the Shan tung settlement now Is encountering re sistance only in Pekin and in certain American circles. The French paper disputes the conclusions therein, saying that the American Senate yet has to ap prove the settlement while the French Parliament Intends to take up the mat ter. It adds: "Upon this point the peace confer ence has not yet finished its labors, nor evidently has the last word been said."

Da Valera said : "It would be an act of despair In c.il'w liiKtic and woinln, If We were !tc think our cause a fsilure. In order I that Poland might be freed three mighty empires had to fall. With the triumph of Poland before us no one can feel that Ireland la going to fall.

STRIKE WOULD COST FRANCE $56J600JOOO Rising Prices Alto Feared if Workers Quit on Monday. By a Staff Corretpondtnt of Tss So. Copyright. 1515; all rights reserved. Paris, July 18 Should tho general strike planned for Monday In France be as successful as Its organlxers hope, tho total cost to France of such a complete cessation of labor Is estimated at 283, S00.00O francs ($56,800,000 at normal exchange) ; If the Interest on capital, material and other factors be included the cost will run up to 1 100,000,000. A careful computation made gives the cost In coal at more than $2,800,000, in Iron $11,400,000; for one railroad alone. $400,000. These figures are being used In appeals directed to the workers not to strike and cause such a loss to France when she can 111 afford It. The procla mations point out also that the strike would defeat its own purpose by causing living costs to rise because of the tleup. It la evident that these appeals are having some effect, but meanwhile the majority of the labor unions at meetings throughout France seem to be accepting the strike order. Reports from Germany say that a general strike movement for the same Is under way there. The Government is appealing to the workers not to resort to violence, but the great question still la: "Will the Government attempt mili tary rule on the railroads, and if so will the men resist?" :lnh convicts Have Escaped From Anbnrn Uaua Since June 5.
