''V \WW! ) SENATE VOTES DOWN THREE AMENDMENTS Treaty Changes Proposed by Johnson, Moses and Shields Fail. NAME OF DEITY OMITTED Shermnn's Proposition Criti- cised nnd Laid on Tnblo by Vote of 57 to 27. Sptctal DetpatcS to Thi Scs. Washington, Oct. 29. Tho Sonato made rapid progress to-d- in tho con- sideration of the amendment to the peace treaty. By a vote of 36 to 47 tho Moses amendment was defeated and late in tho day by the vote of 35 to 43 the second-Johnsdt- amendment was also defeated after considerable discussion. The Moses amendment provided that the United States Phall not be bound by decisions reached through any nation and its colonies casting more votes than tho United States. During the day Senator Sherman (IU.) introduced an amendment (o rec- ognize the Dolty in the preamblo of tho treaty, alio explained it was in the language which presents the clos- ing sentence of the proclamation of emancipation. It was the subject of a considerable debato and finally, after a very earnest plea by Senator Walsh (Mass.), was laid on the table by a vote of 67 to 27. All of the forty-si- x amendments to the treaty have now been defeated. The day's discussion particularly centred around the question of the inequality of tho United States nnd tho British Empire in their voting privileges In tho League of Nations. The Moses amendment was regarded as a supplement to the original Johnson nmendment, the two being Intended to correct Inequity between tho voting strength of the United States nnd Great Britain. After the Johnson amendment Tas defeated the Moses measure was next In order, and to this Senator Shields tTenn.) had offered an amendment by way of substitute. It provided, that In the case of Imperial and federated Gov- ernments. Including several States, all members of the league, the Imperial Gov- ernment or federations should have only one vote In the council and only three delegates and one vote In the assembly of the league. This would havo cor- rected tho Inequity, not only as between Great Britain and the United States, but between Great Britain and all other na- tions. It was defeated early in the day by a vote of SI to 49. The Amendment Vote. The vote then fell on the Moses amend, ment, which also was defeated, 36 to 47, os follows: For the amendment: Republicans Ball (Del.), Borah (Idaho), Brandegee (Conn.), Calder (X.

Sherman Denounces Pact, Senator Sherman then Introduced his amendment to give recognition to the authority of Divine Providence In hu- man affairs. .He declared that the docu- ment ought to contain this recognition and denounced It as the moat material- istic document ever framed by men. Sen-at- Knox (Pa.) observed that the rec- ognition of the power of the Almightly In public documents of this character l.ad been a practice long established and was observed In all great treaties. Senator Thomas (Col.) pointed out that not all the nations' parties to the present pact represent the same reli- gions, and that therefore a fitting and appropriate recognition of the Almighty ts viewed by the Christian States mlsht be altogether Inappropriate a.s to some others. Moreover, tho Senator said he did not believe In saddling upon the Almighty the responsibility In such mat- ters. He had observed during tho war hat all the nations prayed for victory, and he had latterly heard the victory of the allied Powers attributed to the prayerful appeals of the allied hosts. For himself he was untanle to accept 'hat view, and observed with what rynlclsm the followers of Confucius might view this document and such an appeal. Then he referred to tho fact that wars of religion had been fruitful of bloodshed and suffering. God Not In Pact, tlornh Harm. Senator Borah (Idaho) said: \I assume that all the Senators have teen brought up In a Christian at-- l iophere. trained to the Idea of Invok- ing the blessing of the Divine Being In ill great matters. The question Is a difficult one to discuss without seeming satirical. Personally I feel that to in- voke the Divine blessing upon this docu- ment wan a sacrilege. It is founded In oppressions. It rests on force. It deprives reat numbers of peoplo of their liberty tor all time. In the end I believe If wi \lere to It It wl'l mean the destrue- ns of this republic.

A. n believer In Christianity I will not In- - vntre Vl n ,., ... . . ui ma approval on an instrument that oppresses near half the world.\ Senator Sherman said ho had no pride In authorship, In tho amendment and for himself considered that no amendment could possibly make this treaty a desirable instrument. Hope for Good In Pact, \I offer It.\ concluded Senator Sher- man. \In hope that the bad which 1 find In this treaty may be in time from It and that Its good for there Is soma good in it may at length prevail.\ , 7 \When it comes to Invoking the bless-- f ?f Atn'8lty God on this treaty,\ said .Senator Lodge, \a document which, unless It shall be modified, will shut the gates of mercy against a consider- able part of mankind, I cannot consent to do It I cannot bring myself to agree to what would be for mo. such a hypocrisy. In asking tho blessing of God on this Instrument we might trust that It would ultimately be, turned to good purposes. But In the present form, to Invoke the Almighty's sanction of It. I feel would be Irreverent.\ Senator Knox (Pa.) said he consid- ered Senator Lodge presented the strongest possible argument for Invoking the blessing of God on the treaty. He was convinced that It decidedly needed the supervision of Divine authority to mako It a proper document. . , To Ileplace Christianity \When the league and the treaty are adopted,\ said Senator Sherman, \we will bp able to dispense with Chris- tianity because we will have no more use for It. Senator Robinson moved to table tho amendment and It carried on a viva voce vote. But there was demand for a roll call, which resulted In tabling the. amendment, E7 to 27. The new Johnson amendment was Immediately taken up. Mr. Johnson ex- plained that It went further than the committee amendment In giving the United States equality of representation and vote with Great Britain ' In the league. It would preclude the co'onles and dominions of the British Empire from voting on questions affecting either them or Great Britain, as ntralnst the United States. He Insisted that It met every objection formerly raised against the committee amendment and that In its consideration there was Just one question to be answered: \Shall the United States havo equal vote and power with Great Britain, or shall Great Britain have six ttmea the vote and power of the United States'\ The Senator insisted that it was Im- possible by a reservation to cure the defects. Moreover he protested against attempting to do.lt by reservation \which assumed we would go into the League, take part In the consideration and de- termination of matters but always re- serve the privilege of repudiating the decision after it was reached If we chose. That course, ho protested, would bo neither frank nor courageous. Colt for Heaervnilon. Senator Colt (R. I.) declared ho Ehould oppose the amendment opt of consideration for other nations aside from either Great Britain or America. The Johnson amendment would give to both Great Britain and the United States In certain cases an unduly large vote as compared with other States and this cou'd be avoided only by redrafting this entire part of the treaty, which was Impracticable. All that could be done was to protect the Interests of the United States, and this could be done by reser- vations. Senator Borah pleaded for the amend- ment, saying the document was being constructed for all time and ought to be constructed properly. The rollcall on the Johnson amendment resulted as fol- lows: For the amendment: Republicans-B- all, liorah, Brandegee.

Introduced to- day a new amendment to the treaty de- signed to provide for a referendum be- fore nations shall declare war. It Is In- tended as an amendment to Article XII. of the covenant. This provides that In case of International disagreements go- ing to the league for adjustment the na- tions shall not resort to war until three months after the award or the report of tho league council. To this Mr. Gore would add : \And not then until an advisory vote of the people shall have been taken.\ Senator La Follitt (Rep., Wis. as- sailed tho labor provisions as undemo- cratic and perilous to American labor Interests. Instead of- - giving labor a \new charter of rights,\ as President Wilson had contended, he said, \It would perpetuate the wrong and Injustice In the present relation existing between la- bor and capital.'\ Samuel Gompers and other American delegates had protested against many provisions nt Paris, he said, but had been \beaten on every Importnnt point \ Come early for Xmas pictures', short of help. OO FIFTH AV m cor. 47i st. GOVERNOR WANTS CURB ON HEARST Continued row. First rage. loyalty to the American flag shall be tho marks and test of true citizenship In the Empire State. He does not Hvo on Riverside Drive. He has no un- scrupulous papers to back him, but he has a clean conscience and he Is a clean fighter. Here's the man who Is your Governor and here's your Governor that Is a man.\ Every one In the audience cheered for a moment, there were a few cries of \Tou kmw ho, Al\ nnd then the audi- ence settled Into a deep silence as If waiting for some explosion to come. \I feel that I am here ht upon1 a mission as Important not only to my- self but to this city, to this State and to this country as I could aiosslbly per- form.\ the Governor stated. \Of course I am alone. I don't know whether tho chairman or the committee expected that, I would be alone, but I knew that I would, because I know the man to whom I Issued the challenge and I know that he has not got a drop of good, clean, pure red blood In his wholo body. I also know the color of his liver' and It la whiter. If that nrnM he. than tho snow.\ Tho Governor characterized the letter oi Mr. Hearst refusing to meet him in debate as an \untruthful one.\ The edi- tor, who he said spent all winter nt Palm Beach and nil summer in Cali- fornia, prooably never read his message on municipal ownership. If ho had ho could not have said that the Governor had been unfaithful to his promises. And right hero came a typical Smith phrase, which tickled the audience. Re- ferring to the statement of Mr. Hearst that they need keep no tickets for tho meeting Tor his friends, tho Governor said: \If he kept t'ekets for friends of Hearst he could keep them In his ear.\ Holding up a copy of the New York American ard calling attention to a cartoon which, had a picture of a labor- ing man with a mother and her chlld'en and a picture of the Governor with the heading: \Answer these people. Gov. Smith.\ the Governor said : \Weed No Anavrrr From Ie.\ \I want to say to tills nudlencs that I was anxious to bring him on this plat- form so that he could answer to thes? people. They need no nnswer from me. and any of them that are In doubt about It before I nm finished I will make It my business to see that they rleed no answer from me . Th'.y need It from him; they. ned it from the man that Is exploiting theni : they need It from the man that Is sowing In their minds and In their hearts the seeds of disorder sH discontent, to suit his own dirty selfish purposes. \This afternoon I said to myself, when I get on the stage I will try and Imagine I nm a lawyer and I will try nnd Imagine that I have a case to make out before the Jury, and I will have In mind that every Jury, In a case of circumstantial evidence, la keen to know the motive.' \That establishes over 50 per cent of the case If you. can show the motive. In order to show the motive of this attack upon me I propose to take this audi- ence hv the hand and walk them through my administration since January 1 up to nnd I will put In your minds an quickly ns It can be done the motive for this attack upon me.\ When he apnolnted former Justice J. Augustus Kellogir ns his counsel on January 1 the Hearst papers did not at- tack the appointment, a'thoueh thev 'ater turned their uns on Mr. Ke'ioue when he had been named as Pub'lc Service Comm'M'oner. The Governor continued to explain his acts that later had ben rcnde the biMs of criticism hv the Hearst papers. He hd appointed representatives of the milk distributors nnd producers to settle the mltk strike because that was the accepted way of eltlli'ir sue! d'snutes. \And that fact.\ the Governor nrldert. \lias been distorted and turned around until It Is a mass of lies,--- ' not\ under-tsndb- 'e to snvbody, only tba'man that concocts them, for ho has :t hid- den motive and the hidden purpose In the hack of his head. 1 \Everything went along all rlpht un- til the 25th of March, when we. hid the parade of the Twenty-sevent- h Di- vision. Before that parade, Mr. Hearst, through another party, made n request of me that I denied. I denied It be- cause I die1 not think, as Governor of this State, In honor I could do It. Through another party. Mr. Hearst asK-t- d me for an appointment for a friend of his. I made up my mind that the ap- pointee should be a woman, to a State Commission, 'and I selected a woman from the western part of the State. Hearst Disappointed. \And that disappointed him. Ten days after that watch the circumstantial case, and follow me along with It now, whllo I put It nil together to show you the motive ten days nfter that, the first editorial appears In the New York Amer- ican. It does not chastise me. It Is a kindly editorial. It Is one of those edi- torials of warning. It says. The test of the Governor Is now at hand. Will be falir Thi Governor continued : .\At 'the bottom of It his editorial writer wrote this: The people hate a trimmer and a traitor, a backer and a filler, a temporarlser and a com- promiser. No Democrat has ever yet succeeded In that way.' \Now I hold that the man that wrote that had Hearst himself In his mind, because he nils that bill to a T.' It cannot be made to apply to me because I havo succeeded. \That was like saying: 'Look out now, you have not been all right up to date. You know what we have got here: be careful of yourself.' The warning was Issued on the 26th of April, and it looked to me llko the warning was paving tho way for some- thing else that was going to happen ; because around that time It was whis- pered around that a Judge of the Supreme Court sitting In tho Appellate Division was about to resign, and the little warning was intended to let the Governor know that he must not slip up on that one. Then the Governor read a letter s'gncd by William F. Schneider, County Clerk, written on April 30, suggesting that James A. Donegan, mentioned as chair man of the Independence League party, be considered for appointment to the Su- preme Court bench to succeed Justice Clarence J. Shearn. Justice Shearn had not resigned at the time. After praising Mr. Donegan, who Is the Register of New York county, nnd saying that he would be tho logical suc cessor to Justice Shearn because of his party affiliations Mr. Schneider wrote: \In addition to this Ifls appointment would bring to our party a strong nnd positive ally, who through his news- papers has, a largo and Independent fol- lowing.\ Referring to the fact that Mr. THE SUN, THURSDAY, British Salesmen Are to Travel on Warships Bv the AuoclaUd Trttt. LONDON, Oct. 29. British commercial traveller.3 and tho representatives, of business houses are to bo premitted passago aboard every British warship leaving tho country for abroad. This, according to Sir Hamar Greenwood, Under Secretary for Homo Affairs, who made the an- nouncement to-da- y boforo the As- sociation .of British Chambers of Commerce, is \a move unlquo in tho history of the Empire,\ Walter Hume Long, First Lord of the Admiralty, has given his assent to thisspecial service, Sir Hamar declared. Schneider had denied that the request for the appointment came from Mr, Hearst, the Governor clenched his list and stinking It at the audience said : \Don't lot him make that statement again because If he does I will tell the name of the man to whom Schneider confided that It was Mr. Hearst who wanted him to see me about It, and he took a chance and wrote the letter.\ The Governor declared that the ap- pointment of Justice Luco to this Was his alone. This was May 5. Tho day after that tho Hearst attack on him opemd and It was whispered about the capital that Mr. Hearst had a man on the Governor's trail. After roferrlnir to attacks made on him for arious things the Governor came up to the milk crusade. He ex- plained It this way: \Now everything was falling. The Governor was still running the State his own way. and doing what he thought was the right thing, and every at- tempted attack was lost to the public. It madii no hit. So there was a little meeting, and the question was discussed as to what next to bo at the Governor on. So they nnally mado their mind up hat they would attack the Governor because ho refused to fix the price of milk In New York at a loSvcr ngure. 'That attack went on practically through the summer, There was a little cessation of It Immediately before the designations were mado for the county ticket, but the day after the designa- tions were made It began with renewed force and renewed vigor, and 'Smith was responsible for the starvation of the children in New York, because he refused to reduce the price of milk.\ 'This story will be rightly and prop- erly told before I get finished, and when It Is told it will constitute in Itself tho grnvest abuse of the power of the press that was ever wielded by a newspaper or by an individual In the history of this country. \A Ilreeder of Anarchy.\ \Early In my remarks I said some- thing about misleading the poor. I can- not thinH of a more contemptible man my power of Imagination falls me to bring Into my mind's eye a more des- picable man than the man that exploits the poor. Any man that leads you to believe that your lot In life Is not all right, any man that conjures up for you a fancied grievance against your Government or against tho man at the head of It, Is breeding anarchy, because, at least, the wildest anarchist, the most extreme Socialist, the wildest radical that you can think of may at least be sincere In his own heart. He may think that Is right when he preaches It. \But tho man that preaches to the roor of this or of any other community discontent and dissatisfaction, to help himself and to make good his side of the argument and to dectroy, as he said himself he would, the Governor of the State, Is a man as low and as mean as I can picture him. Throughout this wholo campaign It .was attempted to fix In the minds of the people that there oxlsted some place In the statute law ot this State the power on the part of the Governor to fix the price of milk, nnd In his \desperation after the nomina- tion \or the county ticket that statement was put into his paper In so many words, and he knows that It Is not so. \His lawyers know that It Is not so nnd I defy him and he has the bast legal advice In this city, because ho never utters a word until It Is well scrutinized by an array of lawyers to keep him away from libel suits I defy him or his lawyers to challenge that cold, stra'ght-forwar- d statement of mine, that no power exists In my hands or In the hands of any other agency of this gov- ernment to fix the price at which any- body can sell anything In this State, whether It Is milk or shoes or clothing or houses or anything else.\ After stating other cases where Mr. Hearst had attacked him for not using power that he did not have, such as re- moving officials of the Department of Agriculture, tho Governor walked to the front of the stage and with a whimsical smile said : \I will make a confemslon to you. I do not want to be too hard on him. It Is not In my heart to hurt anybody. I did not want him t? come on this platform for any other reason except to show him that he was a liar. \Now he flares out a headline that Smith appointed a representative of the milk trust to office. That Is a lie. I never appointed the man he mentioned.\ And bo the Governor went on brand- ing story after story as raise, much to the delight of the audience. He ex- plained In each case Just why the yarns were false. In regard to a story that the New York Central Railroad had re- fused to accept milk from a shipper at a station In Dutchess county because that man had defied the milk trust, the Governor declared that District Attorney fiwann had reported to him that no milk had been phlpped to this city from that station In thirteen years. He declared that tho District Attor- ney I. d told him there was no truth In the statement that he had told a reporter for the American that he was being In- terfered with by politicians In his prose- cution of milk distributers. \Is that the treatment to give to In- telligent people, make them think that there are vpeople In this City here, or' In this County, standing In the way of tho orderly processes of Justice?\ asked i the Governor, \What kind of a seed does that breed Inside of your mind? what kind of a thought does that put nil \RF.IMNF.TT fir WATCHES are not only falthrul watch- men over your comlnm and solno but aro con- stantly watchful cir the high reputation of the hoiiM that gave tbem blrtb.

What kind of an Idea does that give you of tho great under- lying structure of Democracy, the purity of the Courts, of the Grand Jury and of the Judiciary generally? What dif- ference does It. make how much misrep- resentation there Is If there Is a Govern- or that has got to be destroyed becauAe he Is not amenable to orders?\ \I am not a Czar, I am not a despot. I am Just a plain, ordinary man, picked out by a majority of the people In this State to administer the law as It Is on the statute books. ShoTra Up \Journal\ Stpry. \What sensible person would attempt to put the impression In the minds of the poople,\ the Governor continued, \that food adulterators would be protected by anybody? But, of course, you have to havo the Governor assasstnatod and It had to be done.\ Tho Governor accused tho Evening Journal of so Slashing testimony In a recent hearing as to make It appear that he (Smith) had vetoed a bill that was In opposition to tho Interests of the meat packers. The bill, he declared, was ve- toed the year before he became Gov- ernor and was not presented again last winter. There were cries of \No! Not\ when tho Governor asked : \Is a newspaper, Is tho force behind a newspaper that will do that worthy to survive In a city thnt boasts it Is a believer In the great American spirit of fair play?\ He added. \Follow back tho history of this man's newspapers and you will have to read out of them that In this greatdemocracy there has never been a man elected to office yet that has not been tainted In some way. \Is that right or Is It wrong? That Is not a severe statement to make, be- cause that Is the truth. It the Hearst newspapers were the text books for tho children of our they would have to spell out of them every line that no m ii an be trustod In this country after he Is put Into public office; that no man thinks enough about it; no man lins enough of regard for ,t; no man has enough of real Christian charity to do the thing right ; no ma\ that ever held great public office had enough of rerpect and regard for his mother and his wife and his children nnd his friends to be right In office. About that there can be no question, because no public man State from Grover Cleve- land right down to to-d- has ever escaped this fellow.\ \The President of the United Sta returned from his speaking trip thruujn the West broken In health, after a long, hard siege at the White House, trying to keep this country neaded in the r ght di- rection; whe.i he returned to the White House and lay upon his back sick lr. bed this part of tho country had the satis- faction of reading In the New York evening Journal that he betrayed the best Interests of America and turned her over to Europe for the presents that . Is wife got while they were abroad. Is there nny doubt about that?\ Declaring that there was a feeling of unrest throughout the country, but that he had confidence In the good commd.l sense ot the people and that appeals to patriotism had never failed, the Gov- ernor said: \The utterances of these newspapers make It difficult for the Governor. 1 cannot be expected to have the Influence that I ought to have. No more can the President of the United States exp'it to hae the influence he should havo if a newspaper here in this populous city cf New York is permitted to drag them down to serve the purposes of the own- er of the paper.\ Governor Heads a Letter. When the Governor said he had received 5,000 letters commending him for his attitude toward Mr. Hearst and only one In opposition a big voice In the gal- lery boomed out: 'That's the odds.\ This Is the letter as the Governor read It, and he declared It was a bona tide communication, although no name was signed to It: \You want to complain about W. R. Hearst. 1 know that he Is an anarchist, but he does one good thing, he exposes you grafters all right You don't need to complain ; you know that you have sold the public and their babies to the milk trust ; you know you got your share of the J5.000.000 they made In nine months. What the hell do you caro about the public? You're Just the same as that Judas Wilson; he sold the whole world to England and tyranny nnd you sold the public to the milk trust. But you got your reward for It The other fellow Is dying already, and you'll get yours.\ \Now I may not have paid much at- tention to that letter,\ the Governor ex- plained, \were It not for the fact that ns I read It over the second time I find that It contains almost verbatim a num- ber of headlines from the Hearst papers. That Is where that man got his Idea, and that Is where he got his Inspiration, and that Is his Idea of this country nnd his treatment for the President or any other public official.\ The Governor asked what there was about him or his record that he should be assailed by Mr. Hearst \What can It be?\ he Inquired. \It has got to be Jealousy. It has got to be envy. It hns got to be hatred, or It has to be something that nobody understands, that makes me come down here Into the city of New York, before this audience and urge them to organize In this city to stay the danger that comes from these papers, to the end that the health, the welfare and the comfort of this people, of the people of this State, may be promoted, and we may get rid of this pestilence that walks In the dark.\ It la understood that Col.

Fourth The only way apparently that a collision with D Annunzlo can be avoided will be for the conference to give Plume to Italy, which, as unanimity !s required, would mean a complete back- down on the Part of President Wilson. Problem More Perplexing. What Europe would like to see the President do Is to wsh h's hands of the wholo affair tn conformity with the prin- ciples that appear to be behind the American attitude at home toward the treaty. The perplexity Into which the other Up'omatlc representatives here have been plunged by the American policy wan demonstrated last week when Secre- tary Polk asked tho council to take up he future status of Albania. Thereupon 'he British representative pointed out 'hat It would be Impossible to settle the Albanian problem until the Flume ques- tion was solved. Tho Amerlcns acting for President 'Vl'son wou'd be g'ad to have the whole Adriatic problem deferred for the League 5f Nations, but they are confronted by the agreement made last April, to which the President was a party, that all ques- tions arising from the war, such as tho 'talUn c'alms, should be settled by the Peaco Conference, not by the league.
