23 TREATIES MAY
NOT BE RATIFIED
Senate Not Unit for
STRONG OPPOSITION IS SEEN
Body in Executive Session
Fails to Take Action.
CANAL ISSUE CONSIDERED
Effort to Modify Convention En
counters Contention That Excep
tion Should Not Be Made
for Single Nation.
WASHINGTON. June 6. The princi
ple of compulsory arbitration written
into the code that has bound the
tTnited States with 24 great and lesser
nations of the world for the last Ave
vears is in serious danger and unless
there is a decided change In sentiment
tn the Senate the renewal of 23 of the
treaties which save concrete evidence
of this Nation's belief in such a policy
may he impossiDle.
In executive sessslon tonight the
Senate again failed to ratify renewals
of the arbitration agreements with
Great Britain, Italy and Spain, which
recently expired. These conventions
provide that questions relating to the
interpretation of treaties, excepting
those that cannot be settled through
diplomatic channels or those of vital
Interest, national honor or Indepen
dence, shall he submitted to The Hague.
A similar treaty with France has been
renewed. The main argument tonight
arose over the contention that if the
treaty with Great Britain Is ratified the
Panama Canal tolls question would
have to be submitted to The Hague, but
during the discussion the Japanese
question and the general attitude of
ttie Nation toward compulsory arbitra
tion was orough.Vp a. id led to the ex
pression of views utterly at variance
with entrance into such binding agree
ments In the future.
Prolonged Debate Indicated.
A motion to re-refer the three
treaties to the foreign relations com
mittee with Inst ructions that the one
with Great Britain be modified so as
to exempt specifically the Panama Canal
tolls question, was abandoned, but pro
longed debate was predicted for future
sessions. Some Senators showed a
disposition to criticise the making of
compulsory arbitration agreements,
even if they bound only In cases which
do( not affect vital interest, national
honor or Independence.
One Senator went so far as to de
clare: "There are many people in the United
States and In the Senate who ought to
live in England."
Senators who did not speak but who
discussed arbitration with their col
leagues during the debate expressed
decided opinions on the extent to which
this Nation has bound itself to argue
matters out before a. court. This atti
tude was condemned as one -which was
becoming misunderstood throughout
the world and one which had appeared
to the United States' disadvantage In
the Mexican problem, in the dispute
with Great Britain and in the more
recent controversy with Japan.
Trentlea Have Pew Defenders.
Many Senators were convinced to
night that few of the 23 agreements
which come up for renewal in the next
few months will be agreed to without
a hard fight. Although the treaties
probably have many supporters. Chair
man Bacon, of the foreign relations
committee, was about the only one who
spoke In their behalf. In spite of his
Indorsement of arbitration, Mr. Bacon
held the view that under the British
treaty the tolls question must be arbi
trated, and expressed entire sympathy
wlth the California land legislation to
which Japan has taken exception
Senator Chamberlain was ths only
member to object to the British treaty
' yesterday when It first came up before
the Senate with the approval of the
foreign relations committee bill. In
tonight's session there were nine Sena
tors behind him who In one way or
another expressed the same view.
The Oregon Senator made the or-en-tlng
argument beginning almost as
soon a5 the doors were closed. He con
tended that there could be little ques
tion Ih&t under the proposed agree
ment the tolls question must be arbi
trated, lie pointed to utterances of
Sir Edward Grey, the British Minister
for Foreign Affairs, as a complete vin
dication of his position.
Modification Is Defeated.
Senator Bristow offered a resolution
modifying tho treaty so that the tolls
question would be exempted specifically.
Chairman Bacon asked the Senate to
vote against such a proposal, declar
ing that no distinction should be made
between different nations by such a
reservation against Great Britain.
Senator Bacon pointed out that, aside
from the tolls question, the United
States might find itself la a controversy
with Great Britain during the next
five years which it would be glad to
submit to The Hague
Senator Borah took the stand that if
the United States was wrong in Its
attitude in the tolls matter it should
take the 'manly" stand and openly
admit Its mistake. Senator Newlands

Their intended destination was Ta-

balloon soared straight upward. After
attaining an altitude of about 2000 feet
it started to drift to the south and
probably traveled a few miles In that
direction. It continued its upward
flight, however, and when about 6000

Today's inquiry was directed toward
showing that where the head of a fam

The bankers, for the most part, said
they did not employ married men earn
