LEAGUE OF NATIONS j
Says People Are Convinced Something
Must Be Done to Prevent
Washington, July 17.?Announc-j
ing his support of the principles in-1
volved in the league of nations coveI
nant, but withholding judgment re.garding
certain reservations, Senator
Colt, Republican, of Rhode Is- j
land, told the senate today that the i
nation "must at least see the great
undertaking upon which we have em-'
barked on entering the war through J
to the end, which can only be done
by our becoming a member of the j
The Rhode Island senator declar- j
<ed himself unable to agree with the
objections that the league would.
create a super-state or subvert the
T-T c\ ccjifl
^ however, that the Monroe Doctrine
must be clearly safeguarded and domestic
quest/ions left for national action.
"The league of nations in its essence
;s simply an association of free
nations," he said.
"The principle of international coopera
t\c.: as the means by which international
peace can be made secure
has never been tried before.
All other means of preventing war
have failed. Not to try this experiment
would leave the world in the
same condition of international anarchy
as it was before the war. There
is no antagonism between true nationalism
and an internationalism
which would substitute the reign of
Jaw for the reign of force.

"if we believe that it would be1
dishonorable to withdraw from Europe
at this time, to desert France,!
England and Italy in this critical
hour, when the whole world is in a
turmoil, ?hen the United States
should certainly remain in the league
during' this world settlement and until
peace and order are restored. To j
I mv mind we must at least see the
.great undertaking upon which we
embarked in entering the war
through to the end. and, as a part
of this' undertaking, we must help
to reestablish a new world order by
the enforcement of the tennis . ci
peace, wh:th can only be done by
our becoming a lhember of the league
''I believe the great mass of the
. American people are convinced tiin:
something must be done to prevent
future wars. They want something
con^. They do not want to leave
1 % t ^
the world in its old condition auu
thev favor the league of nations,
based upon international cooperation,
as the best solution of the problem.
I am in favor of the principles embodied
in the league of nations. This
does not mean that I have reached
sl decision that the league should be
ratified in the precise form in which
it is now presented. , !
One and Inseparable. f i
"There has been much controversy
over the question whether the league
should not be separated from the
peace treaty. I have always believed
the league to be inseparable from tne
peace treaty because the treaty can
not be enforced except through the
league. The peace treaty leaves the
vcrld cn fire, with national aspirations
unsatisfied, territorial limits
undefined, racial conflicts impending,
and with incipient wars already- started.
If it is unthinkable for us to
desert England, France and Italy'
when the world is in chaos, we must
become a member of the league as
providing the only machinery for the
restoration of peace and order.
- - -
"The provisions of the league wixn
respect to arbitration or investigation
and report have been critcised
as strong enough but they clearly
will tend to prevent war. [
"As to the general objection thatj
'he league creates a super-State and
hence is destructive of our independence
and sovereignty, I am unable
to see the force of the arguments
in support of this proposition. A
super-State can not be formed when
* every material power that is exercised
by the league requires the unanimous
consent of the executive
conncil or the delegates.
"Nor am I impressed with the constitutional
objections. The . treatymaking
power under the ocnstitution
is the broadest character and it includes
everything that is properly
covered by the term treaty and is not
in conflict with some express provisions
of the constitution. '
"I believe the popular sentiment is
universal, and I certainly share it,
that the Monroe Doctrine should be
clearly safeguarded. I also believe
that domestic questions, like immigration
which in some of their
aspects may be international,
should be properly safeguarded.
The storm center of these reservations
seems to he article
ten. As to the retention of
ihis article may be saki on hotL
sides. It may be argued that the
United States ought to bind itself
SENATORS BEGIN TO 1
CALL ON PRESIDENT
Colt Says President Placed the
Shantung Matter in Altogether
Washington, July 17.?How the;'
Versailles conference reached many j
of the agreements embodied in the ; <
treaty of peace was described by ]
President Wilson today to three Re- ji
publican senators invited to the
White House at the head of a long j t
list of Republican members whom he 2
purposes to take into his conference. (1
Afterward one of his callers, Sena-; <
tor Colt of Rhode Island, said Mr. j i
1 1 1 -Ll- 4.~ flio !?
w lison naa Deeri auie iu ^
Shantung settlement in a new light jt
and had clarified other disputed , i
points in the treaty. Senator Mc-!?
Cumber of North Dakota and Sena- a
tor Nelson of Minnestota, the other t
senators who saw the president were; a
reticent as to the subjects discussed'5
but said the president had given them 1
much interesting information. Sena- I
tor Colt who announced his general J
approval of the league of nations in a r
senate speech delivered shortly b*!- s
fore he went to the White House, in- 1
dicated after ii.e conference that his c
doubt ever certain portions of the 1
league covenant 'had been cleared, e
He said he was not ready to express
an opinion regarding* Shantung and t
intimated that the president might r
make a public statement soon on the t
Discuss Situation. ; 1
Senator McCumber is the only Re-!r
publican member of the foreign re- t
lations committee who has favored 1
the league and it is understood that'i
Mr. Wilson talked over with him j
committee action on the treaty and I
the general situation on the Kepuo-;x
lican side of the senate. Senator (
Nelson never has made a public dec- t
laration foi? or aga'nist the treaty, j
To all of his callers the president is I
said to have reiterated his opposition
to reservations of any character in (
senate ratification of the treaty.
The president tomorrow will con- j
tinue his talks with senators inciin
ed to be friendly toward the treaty j
provisions, though it is expected that
later he will see a conference with
virtually every Republican senator (
including those who have most bit-;
trely opposed ratilicaiion. Senator ;
XeIIoc2' of Minnesota and Ken von cf :
Ov- , <
Icwa. both of whom h:\ve ki-pt open (
minds cn thi treaty, have be-en invited
to call on the' president tomor-j
row morning: and Senators McNary]
cf Oregon, a league supporter, and
Canper of Kansas, who has taken no
definite stand, in the afternoon.
The position of the foreign rela-:
tions committee with regard to .meet- j
ing the, president as a Cody was ex-:
plaind in a statement tonight by(
Chairman Lodge, who said no con- j
gressional committee "has any right;
or should have any right to sum- j
mon," a president before it and that;
tuv wiicnn bnd not asked to aopear. |
He made no prediction whether the '
committee would accept later the j
president's offer to receive it at the
White' House but pointed out that so
far, committee consideration of the;
treaty is in its primary stages. While !
the president was beginning his i
White House conferences the senate;
debated Shantung and4he league and !
adoptd without a record vote a reso-1
lution by Senator Borah, Republican, j
of Idaho, asking for information relative
to the Shantung negotiations. ,c
Specifically the measure, which was (
not debated, asks the president lor,1
any information as to whether the *
Chinese delegates were "intimated,"
by the Japanese and requests a copy
i of a letter said to have been writ-'(

"In relieving kidney, liver trouble
and constipation, I have obtained
tvonderful relief in a very short time
by taking the new root and herb
"Before taking Dreco my back at
times felt like it would break, and I
:>ften had to get up four or five times
luring the night to relieve my bladder.
My liver was sluggish, and I
frequently had dizzy spells, headaches
and a vile taste in my mouth.
Constipatioon was a daily annoyance.
My nerves were shaky and my sleep
*'1 am happy to say there is a
marked improvement in my troubles
since taking Dreco. My kidneys are
/ery mugh better. I sleep sound, and
the constipation is relieved. No
ioubt my liver is acting well, for the
Jizziness and headaches have ceased.
[ heartily endorse Dreco to those who
suffer as i uio/
Dreco is made from juices and extracts
of many medicinal herbal
plants which ace on trie vital organs
