THE SUN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 'A, 1919. .
REACHED IS SENATE'
tfach Side Wishes to Shift Itc
sponslbility in Event of
TWO PROPOSALS MADE
Hitchcock and Lodge- Confer
With Vice-President as to
Method of Procedure.
BtteM Deipatch to Tnc sex.
Wahhinoton, Nov. S. After two fu
ttls eftorts-Kno on Friday last and an-
, other to-day to reach an agreement on
-terms and date for a vote on tno treaty
with Germany tho Senate faces a dead
lock from which no exit la In sight.
Senator Hltchjeock (Neb.), Democratic
leader, refused to consent to an agree
ment to vote on the terms laid down
by Senator Lodge (Mass.),' republican
leader. Then In turn Senator Lodge re
fused to accept the proposal advanced
by Senator Hitchcock.
Finally Senator Cummins (la.), as
head of the Interstate Commerce Com
jntttee, warned the Senate that, unless
there were quick agreement and dlspo
aal of the treaty one way or the other
he should demand that It bo laid aside
svnd the railroad bill taKcn up.
With no agreement In sight covering
the preliminary to the decision the Sen
at resumed discussion of the treaty In
a listless, halfhearted way. Out
speeches, amendments, reservations long
Since have ceased to Interest. All eyes
were on a conference In which Vice
President Marshall. Senators Lodge and
Hitchcock had withdrawn to a distant
corner of the chamber on tho Democratic
side. Flanked by tho Republican leader
on his right and the Democratic chief
tain on his left, Mr. Marshall said lttt,lo
and listened Intently now to one, now to
lloth Sides In tho Open.
It was obvious that they were coming
at last to a aliowdown on certain, deli
cate polnls of parliamentary procedure.
In the discussion on tho floor both tno
political chlofa laid their cords on tho
table. Details of their ptans had been
disclosed and the time had come when,
neither having any part of his strategy
to conceal, they were free to discuss
with each other and the presiding offi
cer the ruling that may be expected In
certain exigencies. '
Whether anv ray of light was Intro
duced Into the gloom as a result of this
discussion was not made known. Mr.
Lodge said later that the next move was
up to the Democrats. They hd rejected
his proposal which strictly followed the
rules. They asked unanimous ngrcc-
n,tnt on an extraordinary plan which
was without tho rules and on which
unanimous consent waa Impossible.
A sufficient nur.iber of votes can do
nnythlng In the Senate rules or no
rules. Hut the Democrats who want to
suspend rules have a minority with
which to try to do It.
f- The situation Is one of curious com
plexity, hinging on tho fact tllat a treaty
requires not a majority but a two-thirds
vote to ratify. Mr. Lodge has a major
lty (supporting his programme of reser
vations. H can sweep everything be
fore him down to the one crucial vote
for ratification. But at that point his
power ends bocauso he must suddenly
jump to a two-thirds vote from 49 to
Propositi of Mr. Lodge.
Mr. Lodge'! proposal is that the Sen
ate agree that, having reached this point-,
and failed to ratify the Senate by unani
mous consent, It then shall try the other
tack and vofo on a resolution of ratifica
tion without any reservations at all. If
tho treaty could not be ratified on that
vote It would be finished rejected.
Mr. Hitchcock, knowing that on neither
of thes tocks could the craft be navi
gated Into the port of ratification, wanted
an agreement by which every interme
diate course might be tried In the- hope
of finding a breeze that would sweep
her In. To tVs Mr. Lodge objected, say
ing; that under such an agreement the
feeiiaie never could reach a determina
tion ; it would be essaying trial trips on
the -tacks of innumerable tentative pro
posals and compromise plans but never
getting anywhere. Parliamentary law,

Mr, Lodge's proposal," made last Fri
day, looked' to limitation of debate and
to beginning voting pn all pending propo
sitions on November 12, continuing Ult
nil were disposed of. To this Mr. Hitch
cock objected rud countered with a pro
popaf to limit debate, but fixing no data
Tlil proposal In turn wns rejected by
Mr. Lodge, but It had become apparent
the Democrats must make some serious
effort to demonstrate their good faith
hi constantly demanding an early vote.
So tho Democratic members of-the For
eign Relations Committee wero brought
together, considered their situation and
brought out to-day a modification oiid
elaboration of the Hitchcock plan. Its
essential feature'wan that It nsked unan
imous consent for trying out all the vari
ous compromise plans thatmight be
offered. Tills could not be done under
the rules, and to ask It by unanimous
consent was "at least s great stretch of
parliamentary usage. v
Suiutestlon of Democrats.
The proposal follows:
1. That after the adoption of this
unanimous consent agreement the
Senate will meet each day at II
o'clock for consideration of the Ger
man treaty and' all amendments, res
ervations or resolutions of ratifi
cation that may be proposed. No
Senator shall speak more than once
nor longer than fifteen minutes dur
tho present week upon any pending
2. That during tho calendar dny of
Monday, November 3, before ad
journment or recess, the Senate will
vote upon tho pending amendment
and also upon any other amendments
to the treaty that may 4e offered.
3. That during tho calendar days
of Tuesday and Wednesday, Novem
ber 4 and D, tho Senate, as In com
mittee of the whole, will consider
committee reservations, which con
iildcratlon may be continued not
later than the calendar of Thursday,
November G, at 3 o'clock P. M..
before or at which time a vote upon
pending committee reservations shall
be taken, whereupon the treaty shall
be reported to the Senate by the com
mittee of the whole.
4. "In the Senate the vote upon tho
resolution of ratification, embracing
such reservations ns have been
Udopted. In committee of the whole,
shall take place before adjournment
. 7. , .
or recess of the calendar day of
Thursday, November 6.
C. If It receives the necessary two
thirds vote the President shall be
6. If It does not receive the neces
sary two-thirds vote the Senate shall
consider on Friday, November 7, and
Saturday November 8, nny resolu
tions of ratifications proposed by
the minority of the Foreign Relations
Committee and voto upon the sams
not later than 3 o'clock P. M. Sat
urday, November 8. If no such res
olution receives the necessary two
thirds voto It halt then bo In or
der for any Senator to propose a
resolution of ratification during tho
calendar day and tho same shall bo
voted upon without discussion. If no
such resolution receives the necessary
two-thirds vote It shall be thereupon
be In order for any Senator to move
to take up the railroad hill or any
other business and this question ahall
be decided without discussion.
Tho situation politically la reasonably
simple. Tho Democrnts will furnish a
largo share of tho votes to kill the Lodge,
reservation of ratification. The Repub
licans will bo content to have thetn do It
nnd take the political responsibility. The
Democrats want to manoeuvre It Into
such a position that Republican votes
against n compromise resolution will
haVo to take the onus of responsibility.
.They ask tho Republicans to suspend all
precedent nrtd parliamentary procedure
In order to give the Democrats this
chance to escape from tho responsibility.
Naturally thr Republicans are not dis
posed to break all rules In order to
furnish their e.iemles such a privilege.
