Wanliiiitli.il. As a aequel to the

between President INon and Sena

In the donate treaty fight. It has be
come appurent that the administra

tffort ou briuglng the treaty out of
committee and defeating any textual
amendments, leaving in the back
ground any negotiations relative to
final ratification with reservation.
Meantime, Kepubllcaii fenutors de
clared ono result of the negotiations
Of the last few days and of Senator
Hitchcock's statement after he had
left the presldeitt hud been to stiffeu
resistance to any attempt at unreserved-
ratification and to increase the
determination of those who want the
treaty amended outright. They as
erted Saturday's jmII had kIiowu op
position growing stronger In the face
of the explanatory tateiients from
Toklo and from the White House.
The rojHrtod position of the presi
dent that any textual amendment
would send the treaty buck for re
negotiation with Certuauy without any
military force to compel acceptance
of the American demauda was taken
as largely forecasting the trend of the
amendment fight.
It Is known that Mr. Lodge ha been
studying a number of drafts, including
those drawn by the McNary group ami
those suggested by Kllhu Hoot
Ham It. Taft ami Charles K. Hughes,
He Is understood not to have stood
sponsor for the draft he showed to
the Republican senators, however, but
to have merely submitted It for cou
aideratlon. Republicans assert that the ouly
possible outcome. If reservations are
9 oe auoptett lu place of textual
amendtueuta, will be agreement on the '
Craft drawn by Mr. Lodge or some
other senator which must be accepted
by the Democrats. The only opeu
question, they declare. Is how drastic
the reservations are to be.

visions civing Japan control in the
Chiiiee province of Shantung, the sen
ate foreign relations committee was
told on Monday by Thomas V. Millard,
au American writer, who was attached
to the Cliinee peace delegation.
Mr. Millard declared the original ac
quisition of (.iermun rights in Shantung
was largely responsible for the Hay
open door policy und was one of the
indirect causes of the Russo-Japanese
war. The (iermun rights were ac
quired, he said, w ith the secret assent
of the former Russian czar.
Asked how the Shantung agreement
might lead to war between Japan und
the United States, the witness said
there were many dangerous elements
Involved. As an example, he said, the
cumulative effect of Japan's successes
In China might easily encourage her
to assume commercial rights which
would trespass on the Hay open-door
policy or ou the special commercial
treaties the United Stares has with
