Japanese trouble proved this fact. Our
State Department, according to the Sen
ator, had tied the country in a treaty
with Japan which had seriously embar
rassed the sovereign States In the control
of their domestic affairs, and that the Fed

on account of the treaty by which It

adopted, it would bar Col. Roosevelt,
Judge Taft. and President Woodrow
Wilson from re-election.
The single-term Idea was considered
in the last Congress. At one ume It
looked as if the resolution then under

by the Democrats, after it nad been
passed by the Republican Senate, There
