Action to Let World Know Paris Compact Ha* No Chance of Ratification?Not Un favorable to International Agreement, But Against Covenant A* Presented. Thirty-sewn Senators who will be member* of the next Senate have siffn ?ed a ?solution piedone themselves to rote against a lea-gt.? of nation a. Thta is four more than the number roqtiired to defeat ra??-cation. Those in charire of the resolution say they will have forty signatures before Con gress adjourns at coon today. The resolution containa two ape-einc and distinct provieions. They are: 1. A demand for immediate pea?ce with Germany and the putting- aside of all other lsau?ae until the terms of peace have been concluded. 2. A notice to the world and to the powers gathered at the peace con* fere?nce t hat more than one-third of the membership of the United State? Senate will not support the league of nations plan. In circulating the resolution today among the Senators, thoee having it in charge found it very easy to ob tain signatures. Most of thoee who slimed were Republicans, but a few were Democrats. None of the Sena tors who will retire from Congress at the end of thia session was asked to sum. Several newly elected Senators who happened to be in the city affixed their signatures. Wilton Plan X*t ?atiafartary. It was said that several of the Sen ators who ?timed had only one objec tion to make to tho resolution, and that w*aa that It did not go far enough. Others who signed expressed the opin ion that the resolution might make it clear that some form of league of na tion? might be entered into, but that the plan proponed by President WH ?on st the Peace Conference would not do. They affixed their signatures to the document, however, after ex plaining that in a general way they '' tvorrri tbe establishment of a league 1 f one could be formed w hich would not impair American sovereignty and American freedom of action. Want Seaate Plaa Kaawa. There was no attempt at evasion among those who circulated the reso G tat?on as to their purpose in pressing for signatures at thia time. They de sired, thev ?said, to have it publicly knerwn before the President returned to Paris that the Senate waa against him. and that knowledge of thia might be sent to Paris before he set ?i It Is improbable that the resolution will aver be propos??d to the Senate or that a vote of the Senate will be asked npon il. Those having It in ? h arge consider that this Is not neces sary to accomplish their purpose. Kven if they succe-e-d^d In getting forty Senators to sign it, this would be barely enough to pass it. and rather than attempt passage and fail they will merely allow the resolution to Ua upon the table. -?:-?? i-t n..? ta Leine. If time can b-p ??ecured it is probable that many of the Senators who have si??ned the resolution will rise in the ?Senate and explain that if considera tion had been given to it they would have voted for It.

I'epreaentative Mann, of Illinois, made what substantially amounted to an announcement that he would not H.wept the floor leadership In the nejtt ? ongress in addressing the House last night. "1 want to ?ay that henceforth I shall spend more time in my Karden and ie?s in the House of Representa tive?." he declared, after statins; he felt that hi.s Impaired health had been r.-*tort*d. due to his long rest. The comment upon his future wa? maiale in response to the ?liver testi monial of the House. "It is not my nature to sulk or repine over defeat or because I rannot always have my way." he said. "In the stirring times that are to .oinr I hope 1 may still be able to lend both my voi.?* and support to help the new Speaker. I will do this willingly ami ungrudgingly because 1 have known Mr. (iillett for many year? and have the ?reateat respect for hi? judgment and ability. There is no bitterness that shall be allowed to remain in my heert." Representative Finie Garrett inter rupted to ?ay that the Democratic ?lde "sometimes hated the Speaker. often loved him. and always admired him." The announcement of Representa tive Mann waa generally accented as meaning that the floor leadership, which Involves constant attendance upon the House, will be handed over to some other Republican.

Tho?e who are moet vigorous tn their op position to the league plan are advis ing this course, and are urging that every one of the signers should arise In the Senate and declare his position. "Such a spectacle," one of these opponents said, "would be a crush ing: blow to the proposed league." A prominent Republican Senator who helped in the circulation of the resolution ??id that the alacrity with which Senators affixed their names to the paper astonished him. Seutsrs liner t? ?>??p "It wa? really remarkable as It was refreshing." this Senator said, "to find such eagerness upon the part of Senators to put themselves down as favoring the retention of all our American doctrines and hav ing nothing whatever to do with the auTairg of foreign nations. Some of them even wanted the resolution stronger. Not one Senator to whom the resolution was presented re fused to sign." When administration Senators learned of the resolution they plan ned a counter move by suggesting a resolution in favor of the league. To. this they might readily obtain the signatures of a majority of the Senate, but the fact that thirty seven have signed the opposing resolution would make it impossibl. for the administration followers lo get two-thirds of the Senate to sign, and It takes a two-thirds vote of tbe Senkte to ratify the treaty.

WANT PEOPLES' VOICE IN LEAGUE Farmers, in Demands on President, Urge Popula tion as Vote Basis. The f firmer* of the nation, y ester da j, told President Wilson what they thought of the proposed league of nation*? when they were admitted to an audience at the White House. In general th* y are urnxjuivocally in favor of a league to pre\ent wars, but they are not wholly satisfied with the pi-op-osed eonstit?tlon. Ten delegates, representing five or ganisation? of farmers, waited upon the President at noon. J. M. Titte tnore. J. Weiler Ixmg. ?. I?. McOowan and W. N. Burlingame appeared for the American Society of Kqulty; tirant H. Slocum for the National federation of Gleaners; Dr. T. C, Atkesou and A. M. Loo mis for the National Grange. Patrons of Hus bandry; Arthur 1.? Sueur for the Na tional Non-Part lean I ??ague, and Geo. P. Hanson and Benjamin C. Marsh for the Farmers' National Council. They asked the President to give their program of international recon struction his earnest consideration, and to present It to the Peace Con ference, with a view to having the recommendations contained in it that are not already incorporated into the proposed constitution of the league made a part of it. Pledge Inrmiri' ??opporr "We pledge to you the support of the organized farmers of America for a league of nations," their spokesman told the President. *We feel that such a league must be in effect a league of the peoples of the world; a league of friendship based upon the princi ples enumerated in your 'fourteen point.?*. I'nies*) such a league can be established this war will have been fought In vain. "The league must rely for Its sanction, not upon force, but upon the appeal which its justness and fairnej?-. makes to the people*?, of the associated nations. It muet not at tempt to create an indefinite super state, nor leave a twilight xone as to the powers residing in the sov ereign member .?tat es which of It self would tend to create disscn i-ion. "We believe the constitution of the leugue of nations should specifi cally provide for the retention by member states of the right to de termine their own policy as to im migration. We believe such self determination is of the essence of national sovereignty. "We also hold that the constitu tion of the league of nations should provide that any nation may with draw from the league upon giving a notice of a year, or such time as may be agreed to, upon an affirma tive referendum of the people of such nation. The constitution should define in exact terms the liabilities of the mandatory state. "Membership In the l'-agu? >jf pa fions should not be coniV\-"?ned upon tb*e acceptance on the v-^e? of the leugne of obligations to serve as a mandatory. "The farmers' organisations, rep resented in the farmers' national council, recommend as a means of protecting countries the creation under the league ot nations of an international investment board, an International board of trade, an In ternational commerce commission and en international institute of ag riculture, in addition to the inter national labor bureau already pro vided for. rrr-.id.-nl N.*nr.imi?Hi*t "To assure Democratic control we believe that the principle of proportional representation should be provided in the constitution so that the member states of the league shall vote not only as a unit, but in proportion to their re spective populations. Such pro vision would safeguard the admis sion of smaller states to the league upon application." The President made a non-com mittal response. Sacrifices would have to be made to secure peace, he continued, and not one nation but all would share and share equal ly in these sacrifices. 16,000 TO QUIT JOBS ON DOCKS Marine Workers Dissatis fied with Umpires De cision in Labor Dispute.

March 3.?The supreme war council this afternoon dfscuss cd the report of miltary. naval and aerial experts regarding: disarma ment of ? .? tm.iny. it was officially annuonced. "The supreme war council met today from 1 to 3 p. m./' the com munique said. "They discussed the report of the military, naval, and air experts on the disarmament of the enemy. The next meeting will take place on Wednesday at 3 p. m." Action b y the Peace Conference in voting an amendment to the league of nations covenant providing for the es tabllshmet of a iinancial section is the basis for ho,?e among the Kuropean allies that the T'niled States can be induced to accept a large part of the war burden. Only In Prlarlale. The United Stale? has agreed to such an amendment, but only in prin ciple. The American high commi?? sion realized ? ha*, there might be any questions of allnanclal character with which the league would have to deal. But never for one moment, it is learned, did the American commission intend even to consider the possibility that agreement on a financial section In principle would etail ay obligation on the part of the United States to agree to the formation of an interna tional pool for liquidating of war ex penses. On the contrary, the American com mission is understood to Im* unani mously determined to oppose any and all proposals to load any further financial burdens upon the I'nited States. One of the suggestions advanved by those who are favoring an in ternational pool is that th*1 ? ? pens* a of the war should be pooled, thit proportion to be paid by each na tion to be determined on the basic of population and the extent of th*" sacrifices made in the war. Hfftl Haw It Miuffv The nation having th-~ largest population would pay mos?. The nation that made the greatest sacri fice would pay least. This plan woul catch tbe United Sta t e ? co m i ng a nd go 1 n g. Moreover. It has been suggested that the United States should be considered as having been in the war from the beginning, thus fur ther enlarging its proportion of the cost of war. The American commissions view of these proposals can be sumed up in one word?"ridiculous." 'PHONE WORKERS VOTE STRIKE Burleson System Given as Cause for Nation-Wide Protest.
