A special rule re ported to-day by tho rules committee pro vides for lx hours' debato on Thursday and five hours on Friday, after which opponents of the resolution may offer only a motion to recommit. Completion to-day of tho minority re port presenting views of democratic mem bers of tho foreign affalra committee on the resolution cleared the way for thu long debate. Representative Flood of Vii glnla, ranking democratic member of the committee, presenting the minority re port, challenged the power of Congress to bring tho war legally to an end and characterized section five of the resolu tion as "an attempt to preserve some thing out of tho wreck of American rights which have been so outrageously surren dered In former sections of the resolu tion." "From whatever angle this resolu tion is viewed," he continued, "It pre sents Itself as a preposition not only Ineffective in achieving its proclaimed purpose, but as a sure method of con fusing our foreign relations, Injecting new and compllcatei questions Into an already difficult situation and Involv ing a surrender of American rights and nn Impairment of American prestige and honor." The minority report took particular exception to the statement In the reso lution's preamble that tho President had Informed Congress tho war waa at nn end. "At no time and under no circum stances has the President made nnv such assertion," the report said. "It H true that on tho signing of the armis tice tho President, In the course of a t a.ldress to Congress, used the wordr, the war thus comes to an end.' " But he spoke of actual hostilities as every one knew, and not of the technic-'"! state of tho war. It takes a treaty to end n war. "Tho drafters of the resolution, and thci members of the committee on foreign affairs who voted for it, knew that thli was the case. By quoting this statement of the President s tho basis for thu resolution, the authors of the resolution lay themselves open to the charge o Insincerity and sharp practice. "The Supremo Court recently declared That what the President had done did not ajinounce the lesal termination of tin war,' " the report declared, citing the de cision in the Kentucky distillers cases. Representative Flood asserted that sec tions of the rerolutlon restricting trad.j with Germany or seeking to repeal war time legislation were within the power of Congress, but cited many authorities to sustain his contention that "so far na it seeks to direct the President to Issuo a proclamation to the German govern ment, it entrenches upon the treaty mak ing powers and Is not within -the power of Congress.
