Reported to Senate By Stone. The battle over the Colombia treaty was started In the Senate this after noon when Senator Stone, as chairman of the. Foreign Relations Committee, reported the treaty to the Senates In executive session. Controversy Is Acute. - With the President advising- Senate leaders that ratlflcatlonjof the Colom bia treaty is Imperative and with Re publican leaders denouncing the treaty as indefensible, the contro versy has become acute. Declaring the 'demand of Colombia "blackmail," Senator Lodge of Massa chusetts has made a scathing attack on the treaty. Senator Lodge U act ing chairman of the Republican cau cus and Tanking Republican member on the Foreign Relations Committee, and his view Is the View of 'nearly all the Republicans of the Senate. Sen ator Knox, -who made a treaty with Colombia when he was Secretary of State, Is supporting the present treaty. Though the Foreign Relations Com mittee amended the treaty yesterday, this has not halted the Republican opposition. Senator Lodge admits German in trigues have been busy in Colombia, but he denies this la adequate reason for allowing the United States to be held up. Statement of Lodge. His statement, which attracted wide notice today, follows: The treaty with Colombia now be fore the Senate; has been made public, so that there Is no need for alienee in regard to it. It was made by Mr.' Bryan In 1014. It begins with an apology and ends with paying Colom bia 23,000,000, for nothing in particu lar except her doubtful good will after payment. This treaty has been urged and promoted with Intense energy by representatives qf Colom bia, by lawyers, and writers, by New Tork bankers, and gteat financial In terests. It has been slumbsrlng on the calendar of the last Senate since June, 1914, because there never have been votes enough to ratify it. I think It is a bad treaty, but lt Is not necessary or possible to give in a brief statement the epace which even a short sketch of our relations with Colombia would require. The ob jections to the treaty on its merits seem to me conclusive, but I shall not rehearse them now. r "The reasons given for its ratldca lon at this, moment are enough to condemn it. Even If I favored the treaty I would not support lt at this time, because I am not willing to have my country blackmailed. Not Prepared For War. "We are told and truly, I have no doubt that German Intrigues and German Influence have been active in Colombia, and therefore we must ratify this treaty at once and pay Colombia $23,000,000. We are told that Colombia will furnish submarine bases to Germany from which she can assail our shipping and the Panama canal, and therefore in the present crisis we must ratify the treaty and buy Colombia off with J23.O0O.0OO and an apology. That we are not properly prepared for war I am well FINANCIAL It is the warmth and per sonal attention character izing our service that make relations with this bank so pleasant for customers large and smalL iWe are serving more than 35,000 depositors, a num ber approaching One- Tenth of All the People in the District of Columbia.

Stone Jones William H. Walker Henry K. Wlllard aware, but we have not yet sunk so low that Colombia can levy .tribute from us. We can protect the harbor of Colon with mlnef and nets against submarines. We can send there de stroyers and submarine chasers and a few. unarmored cruisers or a battle ship. "With them we can patrol the coast, examine submarine bases, and if war with Germany should come look In a friendly spirit at some of the Colombian ports. We .should have to do this in any event, for we should have no more security against Colombia helping our enemies after giving her $28,000,000 than after re fusing to do so. Perhaps these sim ple precautions have already bees taken at Colon. I hop to. I do not know- whether anything has been done, but I am certain that a few ships and nets and mines at Colon and some troops In the Canal Zone . will protect us much better from at tacks by.Colombla and her proposed ally than apologies apd mosey ex. torted under threat. MllUoaa far Defease. "I have voted for hundreds of mil lions fof defense. I shall gladly vote millions more for that purpose If we are forced Into a war to save free dom, democracy, and modern civiliza tion. I shall most cheerfully join In giving the President every power he needs and vote to place on the stat ute book every necessary law to help , us win the war as soon as possible. If war must come. But I will, not vote to betray gratuitously my coun try's honor and drag her throush the deepest humiliation' by submitting to blackmailing threats and naked coer cion" from Colombia or any other state. It matters not whether her claim is meritorious or worthless, lt must not be extorted from the United States by threats of war or of an alli ance with Germanjraa I was brought up on the doctrine oPthe toast at the John Marshall dinner In Philadelphia In June, 170S Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute.' It has, been the doctrine of the American people ever slrice. ( "It fits -this case exactly. The Sen ate pught not to ratify, ought not to bj asked to ratify, a treaty sup ported by biackmallng threats and for the benefit of a country which has proposed actively to help our foes if war should come upon us. The old Marshall doctrine Is the sound one; let us not be disgraced by de parting from it," FINANCIAL money-making oil-facts 12,000 acres of proven oil lands pubic utilities ja 12 rspfcQy Towfa cMesmtbenrid.il at, djildead 2Jdataot lfl on prescat market prfca Qtatixa fsrntnp several times ss ex cess of dividend rtc,uixrjacaaar8 a few reasons why Mid-Confinent CMsittatal OX ft Uittftw is a safe stock to buy.
