clause which, it was contended, would
invade the constitutional treaty-mak

limitations added, the
general arbitration treaties between
the United States and England, pro
posed by President T a ft and Secretary
Knox, as forerunners o f universal

The senators who voted against the
ratifications were Loriraer. Martlne
