GILBERT UUff t'orrnDendfnt, Knlnr I'uMIc I,f!r CetvHeM, IS!!, bv rulllc LcJetr Cempanv Washington, Jnn. 27. Senater Bernli Is preparing te make Ills tight 'against tlie four-Power pact upon Ihgue of Nations lines; tliat Is te "lay, mortified Lcague of Nations lines jltLeut any articles. And, curiously, the leader of tbe "lrrccencllablcH" U becoming the chief advocate ler Amcr- lcn participation In world affairs. Even cancellation of the allied debt, tinder proper conditions, has no terrors for Mr. Berah. It la a remarkable indication of the weakness of Democratic leadership that i Ilepuhllcan should be furnishing 'the opposition with the grounds upon which It may stand against the pact. Take Berah's two proposed amendment te the treaty. In place of the agreement of the four nations te respect their rights in relation te their insular pos sessions and Insular dominions, Mr.' Uerali would hac them agree te re ipect the territories and rights of all free nations, grcnt und small. Mr. lierah would erect tlitw a little League of Nations in the Pacific. Mr. Wilsen, although net tuklng part In the fight for the pact, privately opposed It en the ground that it Is an alliance. Mr. Berah, In effect, with this amend ment, attacks It en the sonic ground. Net Likely te Defeat Tact League of Nutien3 Democrats who fol fel low Mr. Wilsen can join with Mr. Berah In wippert of that nmendment. They Urc likely te de be, but probably net enough of them te. furnish a one third vole against the treaty. Mr. lloreh may hnve another line of i Unci; In his second proposal, that when the four Powers, faced by the threat of aggressive action, meet together te core sitter the measures te be taken, they shall lie restricted te the tuklng of "peaceful measures." This again is an attack upon the pact us an alliance. It also squures ulth Mr. Berah's record as an oppon ent of Article X. Te the Democrats It gives an argit meut te he used against the Republi cans who hnd objected te the league covenant en the ground that It fore fere fore thadeucd military activities. The Demo crats may sav te the Kcnublicans: "Yeu re se nnxleus te safeguurd this ceun try against military participation in tterld affairs. Here Is Neur chance. Pat in the word 'peaceful.' " Air. Berah is an invitation te the Democratic party te function neutrally. He furnishes, them with their position ready-mudc; he gives them their argu ments, une does net tec any sign twit response has taken place In the Intel lectual apparatus of Uie Democrats. righting Slngle-Handed Mr. Berah is in a blngular position in Congress. Se far as there is any op position, lie Is tlie opposition. Single handed he counts for mere than the whole Democratic party. What is Sir. Berah's game? rs it body can, bce he has any same. Thtuc Is tec nig agricultural moo movement in the Itenublican Party. Mr. Berah apparently has morn brains and ability tnan all tlie rest et tile uiee put to gether. An ambitious man in Mr. Berah's plnce would put himself at the head of the farmer movement. But Mr. Berah stays In thu background, enc of the inconspicuous members of the bloc. The bio- muy nomlnate a candidate for President. Hiram Jehnsen is side tracked. His duy is past. But wheie is Berah? Net bothering about the farmer ete ut nil, but tinkering up the four-Power pact se that tlie Wilsen Democrats may llnd teme luglial ground for opposing it. Ktendlly Mr. Berah is becoming mere and mere absorbed in foreign relations. "The trouble with Berah itflhnt he likes tee well te think," said some .one rc- rntly. PercUn relations liave bc bc bc come immensely interesting te certain minds in this country, and Mr. Berah's is one uf tliose minds.

The conference be tween Geerge Harvey, American Am bassador te Great Britain, nnd Premier Peincnrc, which had been scheduled for tedny, was postponed until Monday. Mjren Hcrrlck, United States Am bassador te France, will participate In Monday's meeting.

The decision of President Harding as te United States participation in the Genea conference Is thought te hung largely en the results of these con versations. Mr. Harvey is expected te inform M.

The extent te which the United, States will participate at Genea and in Euro pean economic reconstruction generally nli-e Is considered 'as somewhat depend ent, nside from' French participation, upon some solution of the reparations question and upon n sincere Indication en the part of European countries thnt they arc trying te balance, their bin'",cts by reduction of land armaments .ind ether burdens which nrc legarded ns unnecessary by America. Mr. Harvey, it is understood, will make this plain in his talks with Premier Pelncare and ether representatives of the French Government.
