Indefinite postponement of a vote
<>n Senator Johnson's amendment to
?qualirr America** vote in the
league of nations with that of the
British ??ropire yPrmc,l imminent

; enees among Senator?.
Tt ia possi bl?* that definite action

until Senator Johnson ha.1? had a
chance to* go to the Pacific Coast
and explain to his own people why
he is against the treaty. Be will
?maJ-% th? trip if it i* possible for
htm to get away.
Senator Johnson was a*eail?-d on
- ill .?rides yesterday with pleas for a
1 postponement. ??? was urged by
.Monitor.?? on bia own ride as well aa
? by ?several Democrats to make no
inchiediate move toward bvvnging
op th amendment and demanding
a ?wtf on it. Most of th?? appeal-^
came from Republican Senators
who would vote for the amendment
if foreed to. bnt who would like to
iget not o*" voting ?>? th? amfiidrrtfnt
? if they -Oul?!
mil Demasd ? ote.
?
Th?- D?mocratie appeals were.
from Senators who at heart would
like to support the amendment, but
who prefer to wait until President
Wilson gets baek and gives them
; some substantial reason to holster
up their votine against it.
Senator Johnson conferred during
the day with Senators Lodpre, Knox,
Erandegee, G?? rah. Reed, Penroae.
McNary and others. He declined to
inak* any statement whatever as to
what transpired at these confer
ences. Neither would auj. of the
Senators who conferred With lum.
But Senator Johnson did announce
with striking emphasis that if any
Senators thought the treaty fight
was going to pass without a vote on
his amendment those Senators will
be badly fooled. Every member o?
; the Senate, whether Republican or
Democrat, is going to be told just
what a vote against the amendment
means and is going to be called
, upon to say by his vote whether he
b-lieves the United States should
lake only one vote in the league of
nations while the British I.mplre
has six.
The situation now with respect to
: the amendment II exceed mg I > pre
carious. There are not enough
| votes at this time to put it through.
Several of those wnom it was
thought might support the amend
ment declared today they 'would
.vote against if. These | ne I ode As
; hurst, of Arizona. Hoke Smith, of
m ?eorgia. Trammel. ..? Klorida. and

I lieved that Walsh, of Massachu
j setts. Heed, of Missouri. Gore of
Oklahoma, and Thomas, of Colo
rado, will support It.
Re pa h li ess? It-odctn* I*.?*?-.
But the greatest opposition which
Senator Johnson hts to contend
with 1? among Senators of his own
party, who for valions reasons are,
to apeak plainly, afraid of the
amendment. Some of these Sena
tors p.re trying to meet the ques
tion Involved In the amendment by
a reservation, despite the fact thai
Senator Lodge, Senator Pall and
others have decisively ?stated tha ?
the question is one which can be
met only by an amendment. Other
.Sonatore on the Republican side are
hoping that by delaying action on
the amendment a new situation
may arise which will enable them
to either vote against it or evade
a vote altogether.
Senator Walter Edge of New jer
sey is one of those who are lean
? ing to the hope that the question
I involved in the Johnson amendment
i may be settled by a reservation so
I that it would not necessitate re
submission of the treaty to other
powers. He prepared a reservation
which he submitted to other Sen
ators.
Senator Johnson will never con
sent to the substitution of this or
any other form of reservation for
his amendment.
