[United Press Leased Wire Service.] WASHINGTON, Sept. 25.—"Presi dent Wilson's dream of the actualities of the league of nations are scarcely less visionary than the hallucination of Don Quixote," Senator New, In diana, declared today In the senate in advocating adoption of the Johnson amendment to the treaty. •New also announced he will vote for all the other amendments and all the reservations reported by the majority of the foreign relations committee. New asked what objections could be legitimately urged against the John! son amendment giving the United States a league vote equal to Great Britain's votes. President Wilson's statement that Great Britain cannot out vote this nation "is no more accu rate than others he has made upon his present tour," New said. "Nor do I think that the president has been at all times happy in (his comparisons," New continued. "For instance, in one of the speeches made on his western trip, he told his audi ence that the league is insurance against war—in his opinion, 98 per cent insurance—but he added that if it were only ten percent, he would favor it. "Do fire insurance policies prevent fire? Fire Is prevented not by insur ance but by the care of the owners and tenants of the property. If insur ance does not prevent fire, what does it do? It distributes the loss. That is just what the league of nations will surely do. "It will not prevent war, either 98 percent or 10 percent and the presi dent himself has admitted its fallibil'WANTED—To ity in this particular. It is more apt to cause war, but it will of a certainty distribute the losses. The losses are distributed under this league, not in proportion to the risk of war but in proportion to wealth and population." New said that "holding the views 1 do, it would b^treason" to vote to rat ify the treaty in its present form.
