PRICE ONE CENT Ali Amendments To Treaty Almost Certain to Be Defeated SOME RESERVATIONS Democrats in the Senate Now Admit Fight Over Document Will End in Compromise. After weeks and moniths 6f maneu vering, jockeying-, bartering and bar gaining, the fight in the Senate over ihe treaty o fpeace with Germany has ?eached the stage where certain con ?rete observations may be made and ?ertain delfiinfte facts can be laid down. In the first place, the 'treaty wil! be Ubified. That can be stated unreserv There is net now a thought of ?ejection on the part of the great >ody of the Senate. In the second place, all amendments o t'he text of the treaty will be de bated unlesis a bare majority can be imstered to accept the measure giv America the same voting power in he league council which Great Kri al r> now enjoys. In> the third place, the treaty will lot be ratified urrt.il the Senate has ccepted at least foorr, and probably ix reservations, these reservations 0 be laid down in the ratification esolution itself. Democriatic leaders know this to be he situation as it stands today, and 1 private conversation they frankly db*it th'at the result of the treaty light must be a comlpnomise. Bu>t in ibs cdmipromii-se the President, they ay, has far mere to gain than he bands to lose. He wins every point xcept one. He loses to the extent hat the reservations upon which the ^enate will insist will be carried in tie ratification Resolution, instead of 1 a separate Tneasure of interpeta on. The effort to prevent the Senate ?orn laying down its reservat ions a I the treaty is ratified prat-ti . been abandoned by the supporters in; the Senate, tion Senators will vote .the opposlityon program from lobtom, but it may as well bt JJmitted, and, Mn "act, is admitted, ilat the reservsaitioniwts have the votes ith Which to control the Senate's ae on when the time comes to control And they have the votes largely roi e reason that there is serious revolt |i the part of the Democrats against unconditional! ratification of the [aatv, or even against mere interpre tiions set forth in a separate re^oiu bn of the Senate. As reckoned to Ly. there are at least five, and prob ply seven. Democrats who either are ff the reservation entirely or arc Jingsng on the very edge.
