Textual Amendments Would Mean Defeat of Treaty, Colt Declares By Associated Press Washington. Oct. 15. Adoption of textual amendments would mean j defeat of the Peace Treaty and would accomplish no practical result j that could not be brought about by | reservations, the Senate was told | to-day by Senator Colt, Republican, j Rhode Island. Referring to the Shantung amend ment and that proposed to equalize voting power in the League of Na tions, the Rhode Island senator de clared they would reopen peace negotiations while reservations would leave the Treaty intact and would change its provisions only for the reserving nation. It would be unfair, he urged, to increase the voting power of the United States as proposed in the amendment of Senator Johnson, Re publican, California, and leave the other first class powers with only one vote in the assembly. Preservation of Egypt's right of self-government and future action by the League of Nations to give freedom to all capable subject states were proposed in interpretative reso lutions presented by Senator Owen, Democrat.

UNCOVER RED PLOT TO DESTROY CAMPS OF ARMY Conspired Against U. S. Prop erty From West Virginia to Colorado Chiengo, Oct. 15.—Military authori ties and Federal investigators assign ed to follow the trail of radicals who have been spreading their propaganda in connection with the strike of the steel workers announced their discov ery of an anarchistic plot to destroy abandoned army cantonments and other government property. The plot is said to have been un earthed in connection with the dis covery at Gary, Ind., of Anton Gorski, alleged radical leader, who is said to be under surveillance In connection with the explosion of a bomb in th# Chicago postoffice in September, 1918, when four persons were killed and 30 injured.

THREAT TO HANG PARDON BOARD IN EFFIGY IS MADE Effort to Secure Release of State's Oldest Prisoner Stirs Up Feeling A PRISONER SINCE 188(5 Juniata Valley Said to Be Still Prejudiced Against Con victed Uxoricide "We do not decide cases on pub lic sentiment in this board and I want to say here and now that threats to hang this board in effigy such as have been made in a news paper forwarded to me will have no weight," declared Secretary of the Commonwealth Cyrus E. Woods to day during the argument on the ap plication for l pardon of William Josiah McMeen, Juniata county, who was convicted of wife murder in 1886 and who has served longer in prison in Pennsylvania than any man ever known. "I have received such a newspa per, too, but I will not allow such matters to sway my judgment a par ticle," remarked Attorney General William I. Schaffer. Newspaper Yarned The name of the newspaper did not come out in the argument, but attorneys said that it was the Mifflin town Sentinel-Republican of Septem ber 24. The McMeen case, in which par don has been twice refused, had more angles than any ever sub mitted. McMeen's appeal was made in a masterly manner by George Ross Hull, of this city, and John J. Patterson, Jr., district attorney of Juniata county appeared to oppose it, although he was an intimate friend of McMeen and had sat with him in the trial and in 1909 signed a petition for pardon for him. The judge and the attorneys in the case are all dead. Lieutenant-Governor Edward E. Beidleman, president of the board, declined to sit in the case because he had been counsel in a previous appeal for McMeen. Prison authorities declared McMeen had served thirty-three years and seven months in the Western Penitentiary and was a model prisoner. Ho is fifty-seven years old and L. It. Craw ford, of Euclid, sent a letter to the board, declaring he was willing to give him a position with a coal liom pany and to take him into his house. Decision Later The board will announce its de cision to-night. The case had attracted much at tention among lawyers because Mc- Meen refused to make any defense at his trial and the rules of prac tice have changed in some respects since the trial in Juniata in the sum mer of 1886. Mr. Hull said that McMeen had sent poison to his wife from Harris burg and that it was to kill rats. It was strychnine and she mixed it with jelly. She either took it by mistake or to commit suicide, he contended. He said the community was prejudiced against a pardon and that there was feeling in the county against the prisoner. He read let ters that the sitting judge, the late C. A. Baj-nett, and the District At torney at the time, the late E. S. Doty, had written in a previous ap plication setting forth their feeling that there were doubts in the case and a petition signed by fifty prom inent men presented in 1909. Sentiment Ignored Mr. Patterson said that he ap peared in an official capacity. He admitted that ho had signed the pe tition, but said that lie had done so as the request of W. S. North, who had interested himself in McMeen [Continued on Page 4.1 "Borders on Miraculous," Burleson Declares, in Talk on P. 0. Standards By Associated Press Atlantic City, N.
