THREE CENTS Ten Republicans Join * Democrats in Defeating r Proposed Amendment. MADE CAMPAIGN ISSUE Original Reservation Re adopted Despite Opposi tion of Administration. Ten Republican Senators broke from Senator Lodge's leadership in the Senate yesterday and assisted the Democrats in defeating the pro posed amendment to the original Lodge reservation which provides for notice of withdrawal from the league. The insargents were all of the particular group In the Senate known as the lrreconcilables, and in Toting to defeat Senator Lodge's ^amendment they simly carried out the purpose announced by them a | few weeks ago that they would not permit any of the original Lodge reservations to be changed. Their action yesterday makes it i certain that every change proposed in the reservations, either by Sena- j tor Lodge or by the administration leaders, will be rejected, and, that ! the final vote in the Senate on the question of ratification will cott on acceptance or rejection of the original lx>dge reservations, just as i it was last November. Is 45 to SO. Following the defeat of the pro posed amendment, the Senate re adopted the first reservation in the exact form in which it was adopted before. All of the Republicans and ten Democrats voted for it, the re sult being 45 to 20. Senator Hitch cock and the closest of the admin- ' Istration men voted against it. This action by the Senate was on the anniversary of the beginning of the treaty fight in the Senate, which was started a year ago while Presi dent Wilson was yet in Parts. The amendment which Senator Lodge proposed to his reservation ? would have authorized the President alone or CniKrew. by a majority vote *n both house., to serve notice upon the other i^f-ins in the league of the purpose of the l.'nited States to withdraw. In many respects the opponents of the treaty viewed this ?w?v?tion with the amendment as much stronger than the original res ervation. Several of the Irreconcil ?bles preferred it because it would have made easier the process of with drawal. It was even conceded that if an enemy of tile treaty were elected to the Presidency his first act would be to withdraw from the league with out any advice or assistance from t'on^resd But the irreconcilable*, led by Sen ators Borah. Johnson and Brandagee. had notified Senator l.odge that they would not permit the reservations to he changed, so they all volid with the Democrats. The ten Republicans thus voting were: Senator** Borah. Brandegee. France. Cror.na. Johnson. Knox. Moses. .Vorris. Poindexter and Sherman. On the first vote Senator Krelinghuysen voted for them, but changed to the affirmative. The Democrats voting for the amendment were: Senators As liurat. t'hpmberlain. f.ore, Htmler son. Myers. Shields and Smith of (?eorgia. j The l.o<lge amendment was de feated. 3! to 33. Reject Joint Resolution. An amendment proposed by Sen ator Hitchcock to change It from a concurrent resolution to a Joint resolution, so that the notice of withdrawal would require the sig nature of the President, was re jected. 2S to SS. All of the Re publicans and three Democrats Gore. Shields anil Sm th. of IVorgla ?voted against it. The reservation now adopted ex- I ? ludes the President from any ac-j tlon in the matter of withdraw-! ing from the league, and gives! t'ongress alone the power, by a con-1 current resolution, to give the with drawal notification. Preceding the taking of the vote on the l-odge amendment and on the reservation, there was a debate which clearly revealed the almost insuperable barriers against the; possibility of any agreement on the j resolution of ratification. There] was also renewed discussion of the question of taking the treaty into the coming Presidential campaign ! and excoriation of the position taken by Klihu Root in favor of going into the league and then revising it as soon as a Republi can steps into the Presidency. Senator Walab. of Montana, run. plained that tf the Republicans! stood by the Lodge reservations. | and the Democrats held out for i mere interpretative reservation , the voters at the next election would have no opportunity to vot>,. on the simple question of whether* or not they wanted the Unite! 8tates to enter alliances with tho nations of Europe He said that question would not be an issue.

The population of Washington Is j 437,414. a gain of 106.345 since 1910, t when the number of residents in the Nation's Capital was 331,069. accord-j ing to the Census Bureau's first an- i njpuncement last night of city re turns in the new census. [ Cincinnati's population has growi. during the ten years from 363,593 to 401.15S, a gain of 37.593. The remarkable growth of the District during the last decade has | a striking parallel in the influx of | population to the nation's capital j during the civil war. Between 1860 'and 1870. the population of Wash ! ington increased from 75,080 to 131, 700. an increase of 75 per cent. In 1910, Washington was the six teenth city In the country with a population of 331,069. while Cincin nati, with 363.591. ranked fourteenth. Washington shows an increase of 132 per cent. It has already been announced that Cincinnati has been > outstripped and the figures will un doubtedly show that Washington is larger than New Orleans. Newark or Milwaukee, each of which had a population of leas than 375.000 in 11910. f |?os Angeles will probably be ? shown as larger than Washington. 'it is expected that Washington s ! number in the order of the cities ^ will be the ill-fated thirteen. The Federal government did not assume control of the District of Columbia until 1801. but the District was in cluded in the census of 1800. when the population was 14.093. During the 120 years its population has be?*n multiplied thirty-one times. The growth of the United States during the same period has been twenty-two fold. The greatest increase in the Dis trict. prior to that just recorded, was '.between 19"? and 19H> when the popu lation advanced 52,961. The increase I from 190U to 1910 was only ISS-lOths for cent. The announcements made last night are subject to correction, but Super visor Robert K. Mattingly stated that j the figures for the District of Colum bia could be regarded as final. The population by races, sex, age, occupa tion, etc.. will not be announced for several months. Beginning March 1 , several thousand enumerators will be! added to the census force for the pur- | jpose of tabulating this Information. | ! "BRIDE OF MYSTERY" HELD AS GUN-T0TER I Cleveland. Ohio.

Citizens Mexico ha* sent a force of Federal troops to rea *ue from the Villa ban dits Joseph Jl.

The first information on the sub ject came to the State Department yesterday from the Mexican foreign office with the assurance that the Mexican government proposed to go and take Askew out of the hands of Villa's followers. The announce ment of the Askew case follows very closely the case of W. W. Adams, who was kidnapped and held for ransom by bandits on Febru ary IS.

WORK OF HIERARCHY First Such Epistle Sent Out Since 1884 Roundly Scores Divorce. For the first time since 1184 a pastoral letter drawn up and writ ten by the entire Catholic hierarchy and signed by Cardinal Gibbons will be read in every Catholic church In the United States this morning, calling on the people of that faith to aid In the reconstruction period in every way. The work of two cardinals, 101 archbishops and bisn ops is represented in the letter. Cardinal Gibbons is the only liv ing signer of this pastoral letter who was present at the council in Baltimore in 1884. Pleads fw Heroi??trartioa. The letter contains a plea for a better understanding between capi tal and labor, a condemnation of di vorce, an appeal to eradicate Bol shevism. and an attack on present day extravagance. The letter con demns the light spirit with which marriage is regarded, and urges against ultra modern styles in dress. Concerning marriage and divorce, it reads in part: "The Catholic Church does not and will not sanction divorce in the absolute sense which permits either j of the separated parties to marry during the life of the other.

How Five Adventurous Americans Looted Swiss Consulate of Secret German Documents Vital to Nation in Its Prosecution of War I i Startling Surprise Awaits Berlin Officials' When They Return to United States to Recover Papers That Helped Uncle Sam Run Down Kaiser's Spies In This Country. By FRED C. KELLY <Copjri?*t, 1*30.) When diplomatic relations are once more resumed with Ger many, one of the first acts of German officials in the United States will be to go to the Swiss consulate on the ninth floor of the building at u Broadway, New York, for the purpose of regain ing possession of a ton of highly important secret German papers. These papers, including the Ger man Embassy files, were placed in the Swiss consulate by Ger many for safekeeping at the time : the United States, entered the 1 war. To the astonishment and dismay [of the German officials, the papers will be missing: When the Ger mans open the doors of the safes land slide back the drawers in the various filing cases, the documents and records they seek will be so conspicuously not there that the thing will be startling From a non-German point a# view, the sit uation also will be amusing.
