(By the Assw>ciate<] Press) Washington, March 24, 4:48 p. m. —The four-power treaty was ratified! by the senate this afternoon, the vote being (57 to 27, four more than' the required two-thirds majority. (Bv the Associated Press) Wasington, March 24.—A long sue-1 cession of proposed amendments and' reservations to the four-power Pacif-i ic treaty was voted down today onej after another when the senate ap proached final roll call on ratification of this, the principal arms conference pact. Majorities against acceptance of the reservations or amendments were in the most cases overwhelming and virtually represented the relative strength of Democrats and Republi cans in the upper chamber, as few Democrats stood with Senator Under wood, minority leader and member if the American delegation to the arms conference, against the effort to qualify the four-power treaty. Irreconciliafde Republican senators voted steadily for the amendments and reservations. The first amendment lost in the avalanche of negative votes from the Republican side of the chamber \vras the one proposed by Senator Robinson of Arkansas, which would have pledged the signatories i gainst any secret treaties during the life of the four-power pact. From the defeat of the Robinson amendment, the Republi can majority headed by Senator Ix)dge and flanked by Senator Under wood, voted unwaveringly against all the suggested changes or qualifica tions. Despite the apparent show of strength by the Republican majority, today’s action by the senate odes not indicate clear sailing for the four power treaty when brought to final vote on ratification. Under the rules of the senate, amendments or reserva tions to proposed treaties are defeat ed by majority vote, but a two-thirds vote is required for ratification. For example, with 90 senators present, the vote of 46 would defeat a proposed amendment, but ratification of the pact involved could be accomplished only with 60 or more affirmative votes. This was the case with the Versailles treaty when the Democrats mustered enough votes to defeat all amendments, but could not muster the two-thirds majority required for ratification. cottoTmaSts ABOUT UNCHANGED Slight net changes were registered as a result of activities today on the New York and New Orleans cot ton exchanges.

The first bonus measure was en acted by the house, but was defeated in the senate when President Harding aappeared in person to set forth the grounds of his opposition. (By the Associated Press) j Washington, March 24. — Passed last night by the house by a vote of 333 to 70, the compromise soldier bonus bill was today made ready foi the senate. What will happen to the bill when it reaches the senate is problematical.! However, its sponsors in .the house are using every effort to secure con sideration in the senate, where the first measure was shelved without a hearing. Party lines were blotted out when the house brought the proposal to final vote. On the final roll call, 248 Republicans, 84 Democrats and one Socialist supported it, and 42 Repub licans and 28 Democrats cast negative votes. 1 The bill is in reality a five-way ; plan. It would provide immediate , cash payments to veterans whose ad- J I justed compensation would not ex- I . ceed $50, and would give to other vet erans their option of these four plans: Adujsted service cecrtificates with provisions authorizing loans by banks in the first three years after next Oc tober 1 and by the government there after; the certificates to run for 20 years and to have a face value at ma turity of the amount of the adjusted j service credit at the rate of $1 a day foar domestic service and $1.25 a day for foreign service, increased by 25 per cent, plus interest at the rate of 4 1-2 per cent, compounded annually; Vocational training aid after Jan uary 1, 1923, at the rate of $1.75 a day, the total payments not to exceed, however, 140 per cent of the adjusted service credit; Farm and home aid, under which veterans who buy or improve farms or homes would be apid after July 1, 1923, a sum equal to their adjusted i service credit, increased by 25 per j cent; and j Land settlement, under which lands would be reclaimed under the super vision of a special board, and farm units established for sale to veter ans at a price fixed by the board, less the amount of the adjusted service credit ddue the purchasers. sirikThanTaid HI SfCRfI PARLEY (By the Associated Tress) Cleveland, March 24.—The general policy committee of the United Mine Workers met today behind closed doors to complete arrangements for what John L.
