WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 1. The
new treaty w;th Germany v. a Uli
before members cf the senate, for-
;gn relation committee Wednesday
!and wa? received by tliem with some
1 expression of uncertainty bul with
ja general show of approval.
I The text of ti.e treaty wa not
made public, pending word of its
! signature in Berlin, but it became
known that the document reaffirms
in exact language the principal fea
tures of the peace resolution and
gives force to various portions of the
unratified treaty of Versailles
A first impreeion of approval wae
voiced by republican and democratic

final decisions were reserved there
appeared little prospect tonlpht that
the treaty would lead to a long or
bitter fight when it is submitted for
mally for ratification. Its submis
sion is expected as soon as the sen
ate reas?emb!e a month hence after
the congressional recess.
Among the firsl to express a fa
vorable opinion from the democratic
side was Sen. Hitchcock, of Neb..
who. as senior democratic members
of the committee, led the fight for I
ratification of the Versailles treaty.
Declaring he had received a "very
favorable impression of the newly
negotiation pact, Mr. Hitchcock eaid
he paw no reason why it should not
be ratified promptly. Similar views
were expressed privately by other
democrats, although none would
talk for publication.
Borah aii1 Jolinon Knlgma.
Among the republican members of
the committee, the only enigma was
presented by the attitude of Sena
tors Borah f Idaho and Johnson of
California. The latter is absent from
Vashingtu and Sen. Borah had not
a word tu pay until nc nan oppor
tunity for further study of the treaty.
All the other republican commit
teemen are said to have agreed to
The treaty text which has been
negotiated at Berlin under an in
hibitan of secrecy requested by this
government first was laid before the
republican members today at a ton-
ference with Pres t Harding and
Secy. Hughes at the white house and
later was communicated to the full
committee by Mr. Hughes at the
capitol. Many questions were ask
ed but it wae said there was little
rhow of hostility on the part of any
committeeman. The conference at
the white house lasted for an hour
and a half and that at the capitol
more than an hour.
