PEACE IS l!P
TO HARDING
Conference Report Is Adopted hy Sen
ate by Vote of 38 to 19. President
Will Sign It.
Washington, July 1—The w ir with
Uormany and Austria is over so far ns
the Congress of the United Utah's Is
concerned. The final legislative ac
tion to end the conflict was tukeu to
day nnd as soon as President Harding
dees his part, as he has pledged h'm
*elf to do, peace will l>e formally re
stored .approximately two and a half
years after hostilities ceased.
The conference report on tli * peace
resolution was adopted by flu* Senate
today by a vote of 38 to 10, following
favorable action on the ineasur hy I lie
House yesterday. The report was tlu n
6ent hack to the House signed by the
speaker in regular session. A in .incut
later it was back again before the
donate. where Vice President Coolidge
attached his signature. It then was
sent at once to the White Hous*> It
will probably lie forwarded to Presi
dent Harding at the summer residence
of Sera to! Freliugluijsen in New Jer
mef.
Restoration of peace may be an a
complished fact tomorrow- although be
lief prevailed In some quarters that
the president might withhold the for
mal proclamation until J ily Fourth to
give Independence Day a spe.-.al sig
nificance this year.
War Declared at End.
The resolution, as finally adopted
by Congress, merely declares the war
with Germany and Austria at an end
and reserves to the United States all
rights and privileges which this nation
would have obtained under the treaty
ot Versailles. The provision ••T-ating
the declaration of war was s"token
out because of the contention ot' the
House members that it might !» con
strued as a repudiation of the war
The Senate Republicans, a' usual
presented a solid front in favor of the
peace resolution. All lit vote* against
it were cast by Democrats Three
Democrats, Shields of Tenne-soe,
Walsh of Massachusetts and Watson
of Georgia, supported the resolution,
while several others who were abseil*.
Including Reed of Missouri, wore in
favor it it.
The vote preceded by hours of debate
described by Senator Brandegee ot'
Connecticut as “inconsequential, idle,
fruitless and nnneeessary.”
Warns Against Treaty.
Senator Brandegee, one of the most
influential of the “irreconcilable?,”
served notice that any attempt to re
vive the treaty of Versailles, in whole
or in paVt. would he most bitterly con
tested. Resubmission of the trea'y
he declared, would he “untoward
event.”
Democratic senators wanted to know
if the American troops would be
brought back from Germany upon the
proclamation of peace.
“It s my hope and n>y expectation.”
said Senator Brandegee, “that the
troops will he returned from Germany
as soon as the president signs th;s res
elution. If the troops are in Ge ma
ny to enforce the terms of the Versail
les treaty, as some of my Democratic
colleague's have intimated, then there
Is all the more reason and my desirt
for it is all the greater -that they may
be returned. My h ghest hope is that
America may get hack to a peace st*
tus with Germany and mind her own
business as far as Europe will allow
us to do so.”—Gazette
