SENATORS SHIFT IN TREATY FIGHT k\(t\ KKMH.I IKIN \UANIMIM H m 1.01M.K AMI u» RU.IH »u.n - \\S—RALLY TO ROOT With the Knox resolution formally abandoned by Senator Lodge, major ity leader of the senate, and with the creation of a League of Nations and American participation therein vir tually assured, the fight between the president and his opponents in the senate has narrowed down to the question of whether the United States shall qualify its adhesion to the cove nant for the better protection of its vital rights and interests. Arthur Sears Henning writes in a special dis patch to the Seattle Times from the national capital. The Knox resolution, which re quested the peace conference to sub mit the treaty in such form that ac tion upon the league of nations cove nant could be delayed for more delib eration, was abandoned by Senator Lodge after it became evident that the defection of 10 Republicans made its adoption impossible. The movement to defeat acceptance of the entire league of nations cove nant has failed, it being evident that opposition to the adoption of any league of nations plan is confined to less than 10 Republicans and Demo cratic senators. The movement to Beparate the league covenant from the peace treaty, ratify the terms of peace with Germany and subject the covenant to mature deliberation and perhaps to a national referendum appears to be doomed to failure, the opposition being practically identical with that to the moribund Knox resolution. Senator Knox contemplates mak ing an effort to divorce the covenant from the treaty when the peace terms reach the senate but unless he can win over the nine or ten Republicans who deserted him on the Knox reso lution and are opposed to the pro gram involved, the move will be de feated. Opponents of the covenant in the form it will be submitted by the pres ident are fast rallying around former Senator Root's statement of objec tions to various provisions and his proposal that the league plan be rati- Sed with three reservations, eliminat tng article X, reaffirming the Monroe doctrine and providing for with drawal at nil! from the league. The Root letter was prepared fol lowing a conference of the former senator and a score of Republican senators who reached the conclusion that the most feasible means of fight ing the objectionable features of the Wilson plan, is to propose the sug gosted qualifications to American ad hesion to the covenant. la the fight In the senate there will he on the one side almost all the Re publicans and a few Democrats, who maintain that American rights and interests will be seriously sacrificed unless reservations are made by the Waited States In ratifying the treaty, and en the other side the president ■ SNYDER Motor Car Company ANNOUNCES TO THE MOTORING PUBLIC THAT IT 18 NOW ESTAB LISHED IN ITB Fine New Garage AT SIXTH AND COLUMBIA 6TS.

So long, however, as the opposi tion can muster 33 or more votes, it will he in a position to reject the treaty unless the president consents to modifications. The Republican leaders are confident that they can j hold far more than 33 senators in line for the rejection of the treaty! unless modified, and that in this way they can force the president to cornel to terms on safeguarding the Amer ican rights and interests. Some Republican senators say they cannot understand how the president could oppose the Monroe doctrine reservation unless he does not believe in making it unmistakable that the United States does not purpose to yield this traditional American doc trine in any respect. Moreover, It is believed unlikely that the president could defeat the Monroe Doctrine reservation, because there are nu merous Democratic senators who will vote for It even if It should be op posed by Mr. Wilson. It is regarded as a foregone con clusion that the president will fight the elimination of article X to the last ditch. In this article the mem bers of the league guarantee the ter ritorial integrity of all member na tions" against foreign aggression. The opposition contends that tinder this article there will be continual need of the employment of American forces to aid in settling the quarrels of Europe. It is viewed by some as a British bulwark, inasmuch as it would pro hibit the extension of foreign aid to revolutionists in Ireland, Egypt and India, in which current disturbances and disaffection suggest the possibil ities of rebellion nourished from out side sources.

Whether his will be the only Democratic resignation declined or riot is unknown, but the acting gov ernor has decided that Allen will have; to stay oil the huge highway improve ment project in the prosecution of j which the state with federal aid funds available, expects to expend i about $12,000,000 this biennium. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the highway commission let more] than $1,000,000 worth of additional! work, all prepared and planned under, Allen's supervision. Under the eir-i cumstances the acting governor holds] it to the state's best interests to keep] Allen on the job. Acting Governor Hart has also de- j cided to make no new appointments] to salaried state offices until July 1, i an attitude of especial interest to | Frank R. Spinning, public service] commissioner, and Donald A. Mc- Donald, industrial insurance com-, missioner. The terms of both*ex-j pired this month. Spinning is said to have had a notion that he would likely stay on the public service job, but the drift of the statehouse sentiment is now that he must have guessed wrong. .McDonald is believed to have been skeptical as to his chances from the first, and he is believed to have guessed right. No other important appointive terms expire in the near future nor mally. But it is surmised by those "in the know" in Republican circles that all terms on the public service commission may shortly be subject to an abnormal termination so far as present commissioners are'con cerned, and that various other ap pointees will discover something coming their way with ominous in ] tent, although the acting governor is proceeding along on his' an nounced policy of taking no chances of damaging state interests by dis rupting working arrangements now operating satisfactorily. The acting governor is trying to Induce Mark E. Reed to stay upon the capitol commission. Although a Republican, Reed is a Lister ap pointee of six years' standing on the commission. He has wanted to re sign for some time on account of de mands his huge logging and other interests make upon his time, for which reason he has repeatedly threatened to quit coming back to the legislature as a member of the house from Mason conuty. ' On account of his business ability and knowledege of timber values Act ing Gov. Hart la particularly anxious to keep Reed on the commission in view of the proposed expenditure this biennium of $2,500,000 on new capitol buildings. These are to be paid for from proceeds of sales of timber fgpm capitol land grants where Reed's lumbering knowledge and practical experience is especially in demand. PRICE OF FORDSON TUTORS REDUCED BIG INCREASE IN FACTORY PRO- DUCTION RESULTS IN Reduction of $l2O in the price of the Fordson tractor, delivered locally, making it the lowest-priced all-round farm machine on the market, is an nounced this week by St. John & Titus in this territory. Greatly increased production at the big Fordson plant at Dearborn, Mich., is said by L. E. Titus to be the chief reason for the reduction, the factory output having recently been increased from 250 to 500 tractors a day. The machine is now priced at $750 at the factory. Thirty farmers of this district are using the Fordson tractor with great satisfaction and St. John & Titus plan an aggressive campaign to acquaint farmers with the many advantages of using such a machine. The same sort of prompt and efficient service for which Ford cars are noted is being supplied Fordson owners, as St. John & Titus carry a complete stock of tractor parts. J. R. Mac Donald, manager of the tractor department, is taking one of the tractors to Port Townsend the latter part of this week, to conduct a demonstration Sunday on a farm near Saints Rest. J. D. Mansfield, manager of the lo cal garage, was called to Salt Lake City last Sunday by the serious ill ness of his father, and Mr. Titus has named Frank Van Oilder, who has charge of the sales department, mana ger of the local garage during Mans field's absence.
