Washington, Sept. 3. —Fresi-

The President told Senator
Hitchcock that in all his ad-1

in ratification was obstructive

Washington, Sept. 3. Declaring t
the real purpose of the Foreign Re- :
lations Committee majority in I
amending the Peace Treaty was to j
kill the Treaty entirely and that
such a course would be suicidal to
the United States, Senator Hitch
cock, of Nebraska, Democratic
leader, asserted in a Senate speech
to-day that the majority of the
Senators never would accept any of
the committee changes.
The Treaty opponents, he said,
"crawl on the ground with a mic
roscope searching for pitfalls" in the
League of Nations and overlook sub
stantial benefits which the Treaty
would bring the nation. The pro
posal of Senator Knox, Republican,
Pennsylvania, that the Treaty be
rejected and a separate peace made
with Germany was characterized by
the speaker as a "mixture of pol
tronory and folly."
Would Japs Submit?
"By a vote of nine to eight," said
Senator Hitchcock, "the committee
on Foreign Relations is to bring
squarely before the Senate the ques
tion of defeating the pending Treaty.
Suppose the Senate should vote in
favor of the Shantung amendment
or any other? What would happen?
"Either the President would re
fuse to go further with the Treaty
or he would submit the amendment
to the nations associated with the
United States. Does anyone believe
they would accept it? Does anyone
believe that Great Britain, who has
already ratified the Treaty and is
also under a pledge to Japan with
regard to Shantung, would accept the
Shantung amendment? Does any
one think that France, also under
a pledge to Japan, would ratify this
ijiange? Does anyone suppose that
Japan herself would submit to this
humiliation before the eyes of the

BIG REPUBLICAN !

Trend of Public Opinion Is
Shown by Party Enroll

The big Republican registration !
of yesterday was the talk of the I
town to-day in political circles. It ;
was a repetition of what occurred I
on the iirst registration day and j
indicated strongly the trend of pub- j
lie opinion in this section of the
State, it being freely predicted that ,
the Republican vote in November !
will be the largest ever cast in an ]
"off year," while the Democratic
outlook is correspondingly dismal.
This, political forecasters say, is due
to two causes; first, dissatisfaction j
with the local management of i
Democratic affairs, the so-called ]
leaders having deserted ihe organi- ;
zation in its distress, and secondly, I
the complete satisfaction of the
men under the present Republican
administration. Not a word of criti
cism has been heard with respect
to any of the county offices or the
officials in charge and as the county

DRIFTING IN ICE !
Amundsen on Dash to North'
Pole Is Believed Floating
North of Siberia
Seattle, Sept. 3. —Bound for the
North Pole, Roald Amundsen, Nor
wegian discoverer of the South
Pole, is at present drifting in his j
ice locked scnooner, the Maud,
somewhere north of western Siberia, |
according to beliefs held by the i
Seattle Norwegian vice-consulate |
and Vilhajalmur Stefansson, Can- |
adian Artie explorer.
In planning the trip, the explorer i
said he expected, after reaching the ■
pole, to return either to Grant Land, j
west of Greenland or Melville Is- |
land, which lies in the Arctic Ocean
north of Canada. Should he reach I
Melville Island he probably would ■
journey by sea to Nome, Alaska or I
overland to Dawson, Yukon terri
Two airplanes, it is believed,
formed part of the Maud's equip
ment when she left Norway last
fall and sailed through the White
Sea bound for the icy north. The
final dash to the pole may be made
in one of the planes. Amundsen, it
is believed, may also fly back to
civilization in one of the machines.
No Word in Year
Nothing has been heard from
1 Amundsen since September 1. 1918;
i At that time the Maud was reported
i taking oil for her motors at Dixson
| Island, a White Sea point. After
taking the oil she sailed northeast
I into the rapidly freezing waters of
I the Arctic Ocean.
j From White Sea, Amundsen ex
! pected to drift eust with the ice to
' the New Siberian islands, whic# lie
lin the Arctic off Siberia. At the
New Siherian Islands, it was be
t lieved, the drift would carry the
I boat toward, if not across, the pole,
i Amundsen intended to use the air
| planes if he found the drift would
I not carry him across the "top of
I the earth."
| Amundsen in a degree followed
the footsteps of his countryman,
! Fridtjof Nansen, in 1895-96. Nan
i sen in the Fram started on a drift
across the pole but left his boat
! and tr'ed unsuccessfully to reach
the goal on foot. I-ater the Fram

Expects Scientific Data
