KNOX EXPLAINS
LEAGUE ACTION
Pennsylvania Senator Tells
His Views on the World
Peace Problems
Washington. Doc. 18. Senator
Knox in discussing the Treaty sit
uation said: "When I introduced on
Saturday my resolution to ratify the
Treaty so far as concerns the estab
lishment of a status of peace between
the United States and Germany,
did it because there has been so
much of this protesting and pleading
demand for peace, I wanted to see
how strong it would prove when .h
chance was presented to get pea>i.
"Of course, the one great thing
the Senate could do now to stab >ze
curditions and accomplish al t>e
benefits we are told flow frO "V ®
restoration of a technical condition
of peace, would be to pass that reso
lution. As long ago as October - .
1918, in anticipation of the ear l
' termination of hostilities. I spoke In
the Senate, urging the difficulties
' that would surely follow any effor
to handle the business of .peace
making and of constructing a League
of Natfons. as parts of the same task.
Among other things I said then.
"As to the League of Nations
nuestion I will add a few words. The
phrase is much heard of late Some
recarfrtit as a Utopian world state.
Others, less visionary, think of it as
a league to enforce peace. In us
most extreme form any League of
Nations will. I believe, have to be
relegated to a future quite beyond
the purview of the ending of this
war or of the reconstruction of
peace immediately following th
war. There will he no room for a
task of such problematical possibili
ties in either of the phases that now
C °" Later,"in December. 1918—after
the armistice-I spokeugam and
outlined once more my idea of the
difficulties that would confront the
effort to deal with making the peace
and creating the future worldestab
lishment. as one ne ß o ia ° n ; l t
March 1919. I discussed the drain
of the ieague. and insisted there must
be changes: and when these were
made and it was before us in the
new form, 1 show ed that the modi
llcations, in fact, didn t irtodit>.
Finally, on Saturday last, I present
ed the resolution, which I had P re "
viouslv offered, to make peace and
leave the League of Nations for
separate and later consideration. Its
consideration was immediately ob
jected to by Senator Hitchcock, and
now, in the statement from the
White House, It is made apparent
that the President backs him.
"I presented, in my speech last
June, mv own plan for establishing
the relations of the United States to
Europe; to declare our concern for
the preservation of the peace, our
readiness to participate in necessary
measures to accomplish that end.
That is what Europe wants and
, needs. It would make us a consult
ing member of the association of the
nations, which is our most useful ca
pacity. My reading of European
opinion in recent weeks convinces me
that that is exactly what they want
of us: they want our advice and
counsel, the assurance that we may
he relied upon to help maintain the
peace. We would be able and would
be expected, to serve substantially
as the arbiter of differences among
the nations there. Disagreements
among them would develop less
asperity, would not be pressed so far,
if they knew that the United States
entertained deiinite opinions on one
side or the/ther. They would know
that we were interested and concern
ed to incur the maintenance of a
peace of honor and fairness, and
that knowledge would go far to in
sure against breaches of such a
peace."
Say Mrs. Powell
Is Fit For Hearing
Philadelphia, Dec. 18. Mrs. Emily
Lippincott Powell, who shot and
killed her daughter, Jacqueline, and
then shot herself in the head at
Denver, Colo., was examined yester
day by an alienist appointed by the
county court there.
Dr. George A. Moleun reported he
found Mrs. Powell in good condition
and that she will be able to stand
the hearing scheduled for this af
ternoon.
Chelsea's Big Hotel
Project Imperiled
Atlantic City, Dec. 18.—Projects
for new hotels for Chelsea contem
plated by the Ritz-Carlton, Linnard
and Straus, hotel interests may bo
sidetracked or shelved as a result
of a break between the Linnard and
Straus syndicates, according to re
ports which are causing much con
cern here. The amount involved in
the enterprises is 820,000,0<J0.
CANADA HALTS CASH ORDERS
Washington, Dec. 18.—Because of
extreme fiutuations in prevailing
quotations for New York exchange,
Canada has suspended temporarily
the issue of money orders on the
United States, the Postotfice Depart
ment here announced. The suspen
sion will be "for a short period, un
til conditions become somewhat
more stable. Postmasters in this
country were instructed to pay pos
tal money orders issued in Canada
whenever presented, except those
bearing a date subsequent to De
cember 1", 1919.
IHCHKS IX DEATH CHAMBER
Philadelphia, Dec. 18.—Investiga
tion by the police and coroner's of
fice showed that Miss Ida liassel,
the recluse found dead, had inher
ited $60,000 from her parents and
had $3,150 in the house with her at
the time of her death, although the
appearance of the place at first in
dicated she had died in want. In
the six-room house she occupied,
she had a quantity of new furniture
which had never been taken from
tlie wrappings. TJse rooms were
cluttered with old newspapers.
BRITAIN CAN'T BAR IMPORTS
London, Dec. 18.—Justice Sir John
Shankey, of the King's Bench Divi
sion, declared the government pos
sesses no power to prohibit the im
portation of certain goods, and that
therefore its proclamation to this ef
fect was invalid. The judgment is
considered one of the most impor
tant ery rendered against the gov
ernment.
ACQUIT ACCUSED SKIPPER.
Philadelphia, Dec. 18.— AttA- trial
of two days and a half, the Govern
ment failed to prove that Captain
Robert Ferguson, skipper on the
steamship Boykin, had endangered

ordered the Jury acquit him.
