Inquiry Regarding the Desirability of Proposed Action and Report at the Next Session in De ember. Democrats Would Amend the Co lombian Treaty. Washington, March 12.—At the opening oi the session of the senate Mr. Allison (la.) offered a resolution which, he said, he thought was proper at this time, authorizing the commit tee on rules to re-examine the rules of the senate with the v.ew to ascertain ing what ch.tr.ges, if any, are neces sary, and especially to maka inquiry whether it is expedient to in any way limit debate in the senate and. if so, to \vha: extent.

Amendment by Democrats. The Democratic senators are making an eiiort. under the leadership of Sen ator Goiinan. to re3Ch an agreement upon an amendment to the treaty to be' supported by them and each one has been asked to give his views upon this point. So far substantial unan imity has been expiessed in favor of a mod ill rat ion of artic.e 23 so as to place the control of the canal in Amer ican hands. There is general com plaint among the Democrats that ths piovisions of that article preclude the possibility of protecting the cana! by American arms in case the neces sity tor doing so should arise. It is said, however, that no amendments will be offered by the Democrats as a party unless the support of all the Democratic senators can be assured in advance. While practically all of them are said now to be favorable to an amendment that will give the Unit ed States control of the canal it is understood that many, especially among the Southern senators, say that if thi» or other amendments shall be ofteied and rejected they will re serve the right to vote for the treaty in the end. Leading senators are more conf. .lent than they have yet been of securing an early agreement to vote upon th:' Panama canal treaty and the opinion is freely expressed among them that the final test will be reached not later than next Saturday. Senator Morgan was in conference during the day with President Pro Tern. Frye and other prominent senators and the indications are that he will be allowed to print his remarks. IN SUPPORT OF TREATY.
