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

supporters in; the Senate,
tion Senators will vote

ilat the reservsaitioniwts have the votes

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
