SETTLE TREATY TANGLE SENATE DEFINES THE GEO GRAPHICAL SCOPE OF FOUR POWER AGREEMENT. (W«m Nmpapar Ustoa Nwi Ssrrlet.) Washington.—The Senate finally untungled its parliamentary difficul ties over the four-power treaty supple ments by Joining the two supplement ary agreements and then ratifying them by ununimous vote. One of the supplements, Itself in the form of a treaty, defines the geograph ical scope of the four-power pact so as not to include tile Japanese home land. The other, attached to the first in the form of a “reservation,” stipu lates that issues which are purely of a domestic character can not be brought before the four-power "cou ference.” The vote on the douhle-barrelled ratification resolution was 73 to 0, op ponents of the four-power plans join ing in giving approval to the supple ments because they interpreted the two agreements us limiting and cur tailing the ojieration of the principal treaty. Several attempts to uttach other reservations which had fulled when the four-power treaty itself was under consideration, were defeated by the usual pro-treaty and anti-treaty lineup. The plan of combining action on the two four-treaty supplements was pro posed by Senutor Lodge after he had decided It wus unnecessary to present two separate ratification resolutions. The treaty opponents holding thut the domestic questions supplement really wus a part of the four-i>ower pact, protested that the method finally set tled ui»on by the Republican leader, was but a “weuk and unsatisfactory” way to solve the parliamentary prob lem confronting the Semite, but Mr. Ixxlge and other Republicans insisted it would be entirely effective. Ry Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, senior Democratic member of the for eign relations committee, It was de clared that the Senate’s action in giv ing heluted approval to the supple ment, “is an admission to Jupun that the supplement's provisions ure not a part of the four-power treaty.” Other Democrats also argued that the only proper procedure wus to reconsider the vote ratifying the four-power pact so us to include the supplement in that ratification. Adoption of the domestic questions supplements ns a “reservation” to tlie geographical supplement, however, was by a vive voce vote. Btannard to Bucce«d W. J. Barker. Denver. —Clare N.
