Senator Lodge himself has shrewdly withdrawn from the Knox resolution the request for a separate peace with fkraunr. thereby eliminating one patent objection which the executive could have raised, namely, that the resolution Is an effort to force the i.m3 nf fit. uMntlT In negotiations with foreign nations by Introducing legislative stipulations Deariug en the negotiations themselves. Senator Knox, too. recognized that In the house resolution, when he eliminated the ultimatum requiring Germany to give America certain Commercial rights this being a mat ter, too. that could only be arranged by communication between the Amer ican executive and a foreign govern ment. But the dilemma for the president. It is recognized, comes from the fact that house Democrats were wmras to support a resolution simply repeal ing war time laws.

IT IS AN ESTAB LISHED FACT TBAT THE Liberty Store IS THE BARGAIN SPOT OF EL PASO 305-307 South El Paso erally believed to have been on their own initiative. Historic Convention Recalled. The president himself has declared once before that peace cannot be made by resolution and he is unlikely to sanction such a precedent at this stage of his controversy with con gress, in view of his perspective as to the rights of the legislative aad the executive branches of the gov ernment. Wilson knows that in the conven tion at which the constitution of the United Sta'es was framed, the orig inal article gave congress the right to declare war and make peace, but that the words rand peace" were eliminated by unanimous vote, be cause it wis contended that the legis lative body would always be too un wieldy to conduct negotiations with a foreign nower Strangely enough. It was also ar gued that peace making bv congress would be difficult. If not embarraau lns, because it would be a matter of debate, thus making impossible con fidential exchanges held to be neces sary to any quick or successful agreement. Hoe to Tote Today. The senate Is due to pass the Knox peace resolution today The Demo crats have decided it would be wisest to let the resolution pass without debate, so as to have the president's veto and the return of the treaty of Versailles to the senate. Then It will become necessary for the Republican national convention In Chicago to ex- f tress Itself definitely on what action t proposes with reference to the treaty, and similarly it will compel the Demxrraatic convention In San Francisco to state its program with reference to the treaty A simple negative announcement, such as the Indiana convention has passed, might be sufficient, for the treaty of Ver sailles Is lodged in the white house pigeonhole, but when it Is before the senate an affirmative or negative course will become essential to the platforms -or both great political par ties. And that's when the trouble win begin, as Bryan endeavors to commit the Democrats to the jLodge reserva tions and as the presidents support ers fight for endorsement with Hitch cock reservations, while at the same time senator Hiram Johnson and sen ator William E- Borah i nsist the treaty of Versailles be condemned, reservations and all. and senator Lodge and his supporters endorse the treaty with the reservations agreed on by the senate majority. Both Wilson and Lodge have had their way the treaty is the big Issue ef the campaign. Copyright, 1929, by David Lawrence.
