Attacking League, Senator Says Brilliant Eecord of TT.

League Now Realize Some Provisions Mean War.
WASHIXOTON, B C. Sept. IS.
When president Wilson ended
his work at the Paris peace confer
ence, "the United States had not a
friend in Europe, Asia or Africa and
our brilliant service in the war was
almost forgotten in the storm of pro-!
rsts which followed him as he sailed
or hone," senator Cummins. Republic
an, Iowa, declared today in an ad
ires m the senate attacking: the
eag-je of nations covenant.

for a league of nations and this
only because these people lo
itered, many of tbem without In
qnfry, that the league would
bring pence to a war-weary world
ana would maintain St In all the
yeara to come. Gradually they are
under tan dins; that there are some
provisions In the covenant which
must Inevitably provoke war.
Senator Cummins deplored the at
terar t of o?he senators to charge
otl-er senators with opposing the
treaty to accomplish thir political de
signs, as well as efforts of the latter
group to make it appear that those
supporting the president were indif
ferent, if cot hostile, toward the vital
concerns of their own country.
AVar'a End Time for Bxlt.
Senator Cummins contended that
when the war was ended "our exit
should have been as speedy and com
plete as possible." This did not mean,
however, he added, that the United
States should have abandoned its al
lies or made a separate peace with
Germany, "but it does mean that it
was not our duty to associate our
selves with foreign powers in reform
ing: the map of thew orld and - in
apreeinjr to maintain it as the victors
had made it."
Condemning- the disposition of Shan
tung, senator Cummins said be
wanted to relieve the American re
public "from the eternal odlnm of
the Shantung crime" and "from the
disgrace of passing- over Thrace to
Bulgaria." There would be many

treatv is acted uoon 'I must know
ther it means we have ratified It
the United States When the senate
has acted it will be for me to deter
mine whether its action constitutes an
adopuon or a rejection. I do not wish
to draw doubtful conclusions. I don't
wish to do injustice to the processes
of any honest mind. But when that
treatv is acted upon 'I
or rejected it.
AVHIIns: to Accept Paraphrases.
The foregoing paragraph is the
key to the next steps in the great
controversy now going on in the sen
ate. Mr. Wilson serves notice that he
has no objection to reservations -that
are. as he says, "multiplication of
words" by which "you can make sim
ple words apeak their meaning more
distinctly" but he most decidedly op
poses "qualifications' which mean
asking "special exemptions and privi
leges for the United States."
In other word, tue president,
while not saying It In ho many
Yrordw, reveal that nh lie he
Tronld be loath to 'abandon his
original poffltlon in favor of an
absolute acceptnnre of the treaty
as slcned at I'arls, nevertheless
sees that he esnnot very well ob
ject to reservations that are sim
ply a paraphrase of his own state
ments or Interpretations In pub
Indeed, he practically accepts what
formerly was the position of the mild
reservation ists, though he thinks
some of their suggestions are super
fluous because already covered in
the language of the treaty.
It is when the mild reservation
ists appear to join the extremists in
limiting the nature of America's obli
gation under the covenant that the
president steps in and calls a halt.
x'copic in me senate may not
think the president would dare to
proclaim the rejection of the
treaty, but he feels so Intensely
on the subject that he will nn
qnestlonnbly do so If he thinks
any reservations put Into the rat
ifying resolutions alter the mean
tttK of the contract In the treaty.
When the d resident reminded his
hearers at Denver that the power to
neogtiate treaty rests with the ex
ecutive, he was uttering a warning
10 me senate and to tne country as to
the course which he would be com
pelled to adopt if the senate changed
me meaning 01 tne treaty.
Confusion of Terms.
There has been much ranfiiirinn ni-r
tne use of the terms "ratification'
and "adoption." As a matter of fact,
the actual vote of the senate merely
auopis a treaty ana it is diplomatic
Srecedent for the president of the
nited States to perform the act of
ratiucation itself br formal notice
to other powers or by proclamation.
If he considers that the senate did
not adopt, but apparently rejected
the pact, he would then notify the
other powers that the United States
senate had "amended" the treaty and
that he as as signatory thereto must
reopen the negotiations with a view
to obtaining the acceptance of amend
ments by all the other powers, and
the president says this Includes Ger
many, too. Senator A. B- Fall, of New
Mexico, has argued that inasmuch as
Germany ia not to be admitted Imme
diately to the league she cannot con
sistently be given a voice in the
amending of the covenant.
Mr Wilson, on the other hand, says
that flermany subscribes to the cov
enant in the sense that she is obliged
to agree to the formation of the
league as a means of executing vari
ous articles of the treaty itself, such
as the Saare Basin and referendum
votes on other questions.
The line between clarifvlnr reser
vations and destructive reservations
is ceing close;, drawn. Copyright

Assistant secretary Brahaney went
by motor to the Wichita station, a
