The principal attack ' on the resolution was based -by Democrats oi the ground that it did not properly1 protect American rigtits and that the United States, iu at tempting to negotiate a treaty with (Jer inany and her ally.' would sit down with feet'and hands tied without being able to demand the rights won by war. Republi cans held, however, that all rights were safeguarded. Representative Garrett of Tennessee, the acting lemocrat leader: Representa tive t'onnally. Democrat, of Tvjcas, and Mr. Flood made the principal speeches against the resolution, all declaring that the chief argument in support of its adop tion was that it would pave the way for greater trade with Germany. Whole Peace Question to Canference. 1 Failure f the senate to accept the , house substitute will send the whole ques tion of peace to conference. Most of the ' Republican speakers declared congress ought not to repeal the war declaration , itself, holding it would be regarded as a repudiation of the war, but Democrats re , minded them that a Republican house twice had passed a peace resolution with that provision.
