FOES OF TREATY TOLD OF STAND ON AMENDMENT Republican Senators Noti fied 51 Members Will Vote Against It. POLICY FINALLY FIXED Democrats Indicate Efforts Will Be Made to Have Changes Made Mild. Scattered gatherings of Repub lican Senators throughout the Capi- j lal were informed yesterday of the policy on the peace treaty and the league of nations as decided upon i by the majority of the Seoata Com- . mittee on Foreign Relations. The agreement of the commit tee to support reservations was the gist of the information riven j out to the group of Senators. The [ question of reservation, according I to Senator Moses, one of the mem- , zbers of the committee. U absolutely! settled. "We have enough votes. There! are ftfty-one Senators for reserva- j lions. The attitude of the Demo-? crats now is one which presages, an attempt to dilute these reserva tions." Fight Sot Over. The fight to change the treaty and the league covenant by amend ments. however, is by no means over, it was made plain. Within the Foreign Relations Committee alone are Senators Brandegee. Borah. Fall. Johnson and Moses, who fa- ? vor changes by amendments. And outside the committee. Senator. Toindexter stands pat on the pro-i posal to amen* the treaty. It has not been definitely decided whether or not the reservations or j amendments. If the latter Pr'v'iU will be the work of the Foreign Relations Committee, or wlll b taken to the fioor of the Senate originally by Individual I The anti-league fight, however.. has taken shape In a definite forS reservations?with the vo'" ready and counted?and amend- I ments to both the treaty ?d eo* , enant If this last is deemed ad-, visab!*\ rial ?# I The Democrats will occupy them selves. according to the belief of the Republican*. ? attempting to lessen th. strength of the reservations and thus minimise their importance. The majority of the Senators who are to the treaty and the cove- , ?ant in their present form do not believe the Democrats will succeed in their plan. In the Democratic plan of operations President Wilson w,U bo compelled to taste defeat because he ha.- specifically stated that he op poses all reservations, while the mem bers of his party, recognizing the strength of the opposition, are pre pared to accept the rewrvmMons. pro vided a way can be opened some slight changes may be made '"amo?* the main reservations plan ned by the Republicans are those pertaining to the safeguarding of the Monroe doctrine and Article 10 -Moreover, the opposition is practi cally a unit in deciding on reserva tions. as far as the disposition of the Shantung peninsula to Japan concerned The moi-al efrectof sucn a reservation. It is believed would s, tremendous and would find sup port throughout the United States. Take Week to Read. Some Senators have already hcanl that the churches have undergone a revulsion of feeling against tho peace, treaty because they have heard from I their missionaries in the Far Kaat. The latter. It was said, have received little, if any- support In their labors j from the Japanese. The peace treaty is not expected to leave the Foreign Relations Commit-1 tee for at least three weeks. As it is ; approximately 4SO.OOO words long, it is figured that the mere task of, reading It will take from sixty to j seventy hours. Its reading alone will i therefore consume more than a week of the committee's time. In the immediate future, though, i nlentv will be doing Action Is ex pected shortly on three resolutions, j each of which vitally affects the Senate's consideration of the treaty. I They are Senator Borah's request for j the text of the protest made by Com- | misaioners I.?nsing. White and Bliss 1 of the American Peace Commission against the Shantung award. Senator Lodge's resolution calling for the text of the secret treaty between Germany and Japan and senator 1* Follette's demand for information from the State Department as to why Costa Rica, a friendlv nation which de-| clared war on Germany, was barred from both the Peace Conference and the league of nations.

When the airshi was about 300 feet above the airdrome, a trap door was seen to swing downward from the forward gondola, and a colled rope spun earthward. At the same instant the R-34*s nose pitched downward. The groundward end of the rope was grasped. Then camc a torrent of water from the ballast tanks, drenching hundreds of running men and girls. The engines were silenced and the ship descended, and under the propul sion of the volunteer landing crew, numbering 4.ri0 men, was snuggled backward into her shed. Somewhere over by the big shed, a band of fifteen pieces started "See. the Conquering Hero Comes." Maj. Scott, Gen. Maitland and the other officers are to report to Maj. Gen.

Ryan of the South in general and i Senator John Sharpc Williams, of Mis | sissippi. in particular as holding a ; pro-British stand on the Irish ques i tion. created a near-sectional split , of the Friends of Irish Freedom last ? night in Gonzaga Hall and caused the : speaker of the evening. John G. j Capers, of North Carolina, former | commissioner of internal revenue, to ? preface his address with a heated 1 refutation of Ryan's remarks. i "My father was a Confederate sol dier and as good a man as ever lived." declared Capers. "It thrusts daggers in the hearts of fellow-fight ers for Irish freedom when such infamous sectional questions are brought up in a meeting like this." When Mr. Ryan attempted to inter rupt at this point the speaker re minded him that he had alreaJy i made "twelve speeches." The matter arose when replies from Rossa F. Downing, president of the organization; Patrick J. Ryan and William J. Ryan were read, answer ing what was declared to be "insult ing" letters received by them from Senator Williams on the question of Irish independence.

By MA J. U. 11. SlUlT. Commander of the R-M. (Oo^jricbt. 1919.) I'ulham, England, July IS.?I1 think Ix am a pretty fair prophet., The night we left New York I said we would take between seventy and J eighty hoars in crossing. We ac-1 tually did it In seventy-five hours.! three minutes, as against 108 hours on the outward Journey. This is exceedingly satisfactory ?o i me since the last leg of the return! was made under adverse weather and despite one broken engine. ! The first 800 miles of our home- i ward Journey were the fastest. We reached a speed of seventy-two knots. which Is equivalent to eighty-two miles, but didn't keep up this speed permanently. I shall never forget the farewell sight of New York, when we circled the Times tower shortly after mid* j night, at a height of 2.000 feet. j Look Down on Broadway. Below us lay a fairyland of lights and we even detected thousands of white dotg representing upturned faces between the lanes of lights. It was the weirdest night any of us had ever seen. The engines of our airship were too noisy for us to de tect any sound from Broadway, but we beliebed the people down there were giving us hearty farewell cheers. We had a strong wind behind us when we passed 130 miles south of Newfoundland, but as we drew east ward the wind veered around and got ahead of us. though there was no great velocity. Thereafter we had light winds from various directions the whole way across, and a lot of low clouds and fog which prevented our getting sight I of any sort lor twenty-four hours tn 1 the middle part of the Journey. Most of the trip arross was done I above the lower cloud strata; the sea was not visible, which made it hard i to estimate drift or speed. i Just before Ireland was reached we traveled six hours at f?,000 feet. All of us were very cold, particularly after the terrific heat that prevailed at New York. Wo struck Ireland at exactly the same spot where Aleock and Brown landed i ? Clifden. The breakdown of one of our engines in the after-car was not as serious as it might appear. Though this meant a loss of one-fifth of our driving power when we were 1.200 miles from East Fortune, it made practically no difference because in a dirigible only four engines are used normally except when bucking h^ad winds Occasionally, only three en gines are necessary. Really, compared with the dangers and the anxiety on our outward voy age. this return was a pleasure Jaunt, and we'll have to rack our brains to provide the correspondents with ?sen sation.' As far as I can remember, the most sensational feature was when we discovered the cook asleep under the dining room table. ^ No? i don't, make a mistake. It wasn't too nv. ch of that twelfth-hour rum which we took aboard on Hazlehurst Field, hut he was sleeping for a perfectly excusable cause?that is excusable in any airship. You'll have to pet the cook's own story on that point Grateful for Ram. But incidentally 1 wish to thank the , benefactor who stowed some rum 1 aboard just before our departure. The members of the R-34's crew have voted to build him a monument. No. sir. we don't dare reveal the name of this benefactor who risked the terrors of the law in dry America to guard us from the Arctic cold which we experienced when approach in sr Ireland. i Wo have a thousand gallons of petrol left in our tanks, which is "a , happy contrast with the terrifying shortage while approaching Lqng Island. If we had only known what 1 a small consumption of petrol was ; ahead of us we wouldn't have left any members of the crew behind. We might even have brought back our I stowaway. I To sum up the results of the round trip: It was not as difficult as we had anticipated. though we had anxious moments during a thunder storm over Nova Scotia and when the petrol was running low. Fearful of Storm. I was consumed with anxiety all the time the R-"4 was at Hazl^urst. be ; cause one of New York's famous thun 1 derstorms would have wrenched her j seaward in a jiffy. I am convinced beyond doubt that I the ?iirlp:IV>!e is the only type of trans ocean voyager, and the R-34 Is only a *! pioneer. Larger and faster cratft will ! follow. Safety and dependable schedule in crossing depend wholly upon petrol carrying capacity and consistent speed of seventy or eighty knots. We all be lieve that the good old R-34 has blazed the trail for ships of quadruple her size which will make trans-Atlantic air travel as common as sea travel is today. What are my immediate plans? Sleep! Twice around the clock! John D. to Help Build Jersey Y. M. C. A. New York. July 13.?An industrial Y. M. C. A. costing ?00.000 Is to be built at Bayonne. N. J.. from funds donated by John D.

The United States Shipping' i Board yesterday announced that It' had granted a flat, horizontal in crease of $10 per month in the wages of sailors, firemen, cooks and stewards and other men em ' ployed on vessels owned or oper ated by the board sailing from Atlantic and Gulf ports. I The wage increase is uncondi I tional. and is effective at once. Be ! cause of this and because of the i granting of an eight-hour working day in port, the Shipping Board I believes this will end the strike. I although the demands of the men i were for an increase of $15. The board made this statement last . night: ?The Shipping Board believes | that the conditions which it hereby j announces are just and fair and expects all men to return at once j to work on its vessels to facilitate ' prompt dispatch of vessels and I cargo." Amomnts to 10 Per Ceat. J Vice Chairman Raymond B. Ste ! vens, of the board, who held the con J ferences with the representatives of (the unions and the employes of the , Shipping Board, said last night that : the flat increase of $10 amounts to | more than 10 per cent. "American wages are pretty high, and this gives the men a very fa vorable adjustment of the demands which have been pending sine? early June," said Mr. Stevens. "Licensed | officers received a 25 per cent ad i vane a last December, effective in (January, but the men have received | no increase until now. : "We can't spr3i? fur the private ' owners of ships. The American j Steamship Association voted Satur day for a 10 per cent increase, con ditional upon an agreement being reached on reasonable rules. The in crease ordered by the Shipping Board is unconditional. Any adjustments will be made later." Has Granted 8-Hoir Day. Vice Chairman Stevens called at tention to the fact that the Ship ping Board had granted a working day of eight hours for the men while in port. It was stated that the Shipping Board could not at I this time consider favorably the i three-watch system for deck crpws ; because this would tend to increase i the sise of crews at a time when I there is a great shortage of sailors. I The new scale of wages affects I individual employes in the various 'classifications as follows: Carpenters raised from $90 to $100; boatswains from $85 to $90: quartermasters from $77 to $87.50: j able seamen, from $75 to $85: ordi ? nary seamen from $55 to $60: boys | for training purposes, wage. $40.

Stewards from $120 to $125: chief cooks from $100 to $115; second cook and baker, from $90 to $100: second cook, at $75: third cooks, from $60 to $70: messmen from $60 to $70: messboys. from $55 to $65.

' The sincerity of the move it slighUy minimised by the fact that the man who have been condemned to death are outside the Jurisdictions of the court martial and Turkey, having fled when they saw the debacle that was to come after the war and the defeat of Turkey It it also noted that the Turkish court-martial imposed im prisonment for fifteen years on those oflciais who are in the hands of the Turkish government.
