Senate's Action Raises
Serious Problem.
Assembly Is Much Concerned Over
Change in Relations With Ber
lin Now Threatened.
(Copyright bv the New York World. Pub
lished by Arrangement.)
PARIS. Nov. IS. (.Special cable.)
The newly-elected French assembly
has before it the possibility of nego
tiating a new treaty with Germany.
The assembly as elected must sup
port the treaty as it stands, and the
restrictions placed by the United
States senate materially change the
treaty, according to the French view
point. The restrictions regarding ar
ticle X., to the moderate French view,
nullify the treaty and bring the whole
situation bark to the point before
President Wilson came to Europe.
From a French statesman rising
rstoidlv in prominence who is closely
connected with America and President
. W ilson. T get the following view
point, which will unquestionably pre
vail in the new assembly when it con
venes on December 8. He said France
and Kn eland had agreed before the
arrival of Mr. Wilson that it
necessary to hold the left bank of the
Rhine and separate the Rhine people
from Prussia.
W I In on Proposal Accepted.
Belgium wa.s to go to Cologne and
France to hold the rest of the river
to Switzerland? with wide bridge
heads on the right bank. The Rhine
country wks to be divided into buffer
Mates, making France and Belgium
safe against invasion if Germany had
another attack of megalomania like
that of 1914.
The agreement was already iron
clad when Mr. Wilson reached Kurope
and convinced the French and British
statesmen that a league of nations
was more effective to keep peace, and
gradually induced the European
statesmen to accept a treaty basis
which limited occupation of the Rhine
for indemnity purposes, but made it
sufficiently long to give the league of
nations a chunce to become a living
.reality, so that the French troops
could safely withdraw from the Rhine,
regardless of what the political
changes were in Germany.
The French always suspected Ger
many would become her reactionary
old self again as soon as she recov
ered from defeat, but thought the
danger point could be passed within
13 years with the new era in inter
national relations. To accomplish this
they counted absolutely on the United
States. They regarded the league of
nations only safe if the United States
continued to maintain the place in
world politics it showed when it en
tered the war.
Senate Chan gen Situation.
They had implicit faith in Mr. Wil
son, and have yet. but see that the
senate has undermined the president's
posi Hon. The new French assembly
will t hus be faced with a different
situation from that when the peace
t reaty is signed. The assembly will
have to accept the senate's word that
France can not rely on the United
States to u phold the position of
America when she signed the treaty.
This being the. case, the assembly
must consider means to re-establish
French safety without counting abso
lutely on the league of nations. A
new treaty with Germany, forcing
Germany to relinquish all claim to the
Rhine provinces and establishing a
buffer republic economically allied to
France will be "the trenc1 of this
pol icy.
The assembly was elected in sup
port of the treaty as written, not as
modified by the senate, and will be
expected to protect French interests
before everything.
There is little press comment on the
senate's action, partly on account of
t he newspaper strike, which contin
ues, and also because the editorials
written by the various newspapers in
the single organ at the present time
being published still discuss the elec
tion results.
Hope 'ot Yet Abandoned.
But an important official in the
French foreign office, in commenting
on the senate s stand against the
treaty, still hopes that some means of
reaching a compromise exists. This
politician is an optimist, and. no
doubt, because the information
ceived here is not ample enough
throw a clear light on the matter, he
believes there is still hope for ratifi
cation. "If one reads the text of article X,
which, by the way, is very imprecise
and loose, it is difficult to believe that
not one person of good faith could
see in it irreducible opposition purely
V the reservation adopted bv the sen
ate," he remarked. "Everywhere pas
sion is a bud adviser, and in politics
more so. We want to think that those
passions which have arisen during
the long debate in Washington can be
restrained so as not to let questions
of persons or parties finally carry all
before them above the high interests
of civilization at a time when a vote
is to be cast which is to assure or
mar the peace of the world."
have the means of settling disputes
and of restoring order in all the dis
turned recrions of the world. Neve
theless. America's refusal to join with
Kurone in these great tasks will be
the greatest disaster of our time.
Moral Effect Feared.
"It is not so much that America's
abstention will involve us in practical
difficulties, though these difficulties
raav be serious enough. The nations
of South America may be reluctant to
join whole-heartedly in the league;
the smaller European nations may be
discouraged; even our own statesmen
may become lukewarm. But all of
these difficulties can be overcome if
public opinion is alert and energetic.
The great disaster is the moral one.
Kurope needs the United States.
Lord Percy points out that the war
broke down the barrier between
America and Europe.
"Not only did America come to the
help of Europe with . men, material
and money; she came to realize that
she had great moral responsibili",
not only in Europe but also in the
east, and she proved that she was
fully capable of living up to those'
responsibilities Is all this to be
thrown away? Are we to return to
1914 to build up the old barrier again
between east and west?
'America cannot do this even if she
would. She is in the midst of a great
era' of expansicm; both her commer
cial and her intellectual interests are
carrying her people into every quarter
of the globe. She may remain out
side the league, but she cannot disin
terest herself in what it does. Hav
ing refused to enter it. her present
suspicion will deepen, first into jeal
ousy andthen into hostility, and when
real hostility develops between Eu
rope and the United .States the col
lapse of the whole structure of mod
ern civilization will be inevitable.
Hasty Judgment Dlscourased.
"This is the danger. If it is to be
averted, we in England must refrain
from all hasty judgments on Amer
ica's present policy and must go
steadily on with the duty immedi
ately before us the building up of
the league in the interest, not of our
selves, but of the world at large.
Time is on our side, for. whatever
suspicions the American people may
entertain today, the time will come
when they will realize that the cove
nant was not born of any diplomatic
game at Paris, but was the fruit of
an earnest and wholly disinterested
effort to construct a practical, work
able international system to safe
guard the peace that we have so
hardly won."
The marquis of Crewe, formerly
colonial minister, in an article in the
Pall Mall Gazette, after pointing out
various circumstances which should
be considered in judging the senate's
action, says:
"Last, but by no means, least; a
great many Americans feel that we
have all descended together from a
high plane of idealism on which the
league of nations came into being.
If there has not been an actual
scramble for material gains, there
has been something not far removed
from it. America, too, it might be
argued, must be sternly practical in
a practical world, and most practical
of all in holding aloof from the strug
gles and jealousies of a society so
imperfectly purified by the furnace
of war.
Revolution Thwarted, Rus
sian Chief Grateful.
Sympathy Jm Extended.
"Such are some of the factors in
what at first sight appears to be the
great refusal of America, but there
is no sort of need to despair or even
to be greatly disheartened. The
league of nations indeed is a resil
ient body, and.jthough the action of
the majority of the senate is a hard
blow, the damage is not irreparable.
It is the duty of all of us to sympa
thise with the difficulties of America
in discussing and deciding these great
issues and to comprehend them as far
as we can. Our own political future
is not so sure that we can afford to
adopt an attitude of lofty criticism."
Movement Xot Bolshevistic, Says
Czecno-Slovak Commander; Jap
anese Bitterly Censured.
VLADIVOSTOK. Nov. 21. (By the
Associated Press.) General Roanoff,
in a proclamation dealing with tfae
recent attempted revolution here,
said: -
"Congratulations to land and naval
forces and deepest gratitude to our
noble allies for the services they have
rendered. In the name of the gov
ernment, I thank the allied troops
who protected the property and the
dignity of the Russian state."
General Rudolph Gaida, Czecho
Slovak commander and leader of the
revolutionary forces, was interviewed
today as he lay in bed suffering from
a wound incurred during the fighting,
and guarded by Czecho-Slovak sol
"The revolutionary movement was
purely of the people," he said, "its
supporters being of the Russian dem
ocratic classes and its leaders includ
ing members of the czar's duma, three
figures in the Kerensky government
and many young Russian officers.
That was not bolshevistic. Its rec
ords and its leaders' programme, out
lined to the people, are all the proof
that is necessary.
Japanese Action Denounced
"As commander-in-chief, I led the
military forces, which included 100
of my personal guard. 500 deserters
from the government's forces and
1500 workmen and civilians. The
; fighting started when a company of
Russians fired on another company
which was coming over to us. I made
every effort within my power" to pre
vent fighting.
"I believe we would have won had
not Japanese troops prevented our
sending out raiding parties from the
railway station. These parties were
turned back, placing us In a trap.
Unable to spread our activities, we
were surrounded, but held out until
the government forces brought up
General Gaida will be deported to
Czecho-frHovakia soon, but he,
nounced that he will continue to work
for the Russian cause. He bitterly
arraigned the policy and activities
of the allies in Russia.
Mppon Avows Neutrality.
The Russian official news agency
has issued a note of thanks to "the
allies, and particularly the Japanese
for services to the Russian cause."
The note adds: "Admiral Fedeoro-
vitch states the Japanese warship
Hizen aided our flotilla by illuminat
ing the station with its searchlights.'
In reply Admiral Kawahra issued a
statement from Admiral Fedeorovitch
authorizing him to deny the news
agency statement. The Japanese
naval force conformed to its attitude
of strict neutrality, he declared. The
Japanese press bureau also has asked
for a correction of the statement that
the allies, and especially the Japa
nese, aided the government forces in
the overthrow of the rebels.

Senator Working for Legislation to
Take Task Out of Hands of
Bureau of Labor.
SEATTLE, Wash., Xov. 23. (Spe

the legal differences that for many
months have flocked the efforts of
the federal authorities in the state of
Washington to rid the commonwealth
of the I. W. W. and other anarchists.
Representative Johnson is working
for federal legislation that will take
the task of deporting undesirable
alien radicals out of the hands of the
department of labor and place it in
the hands of the United States de

Representative Johnson yesterday
telegraphed Chief of Police Harry
Smith of Tacoma, declaring his pur
pose to work for the departmental
change and expressing the hope that
the necessary law would be obtained
by the first week in December so that
"deportation may really deport."
Mr. Johnson's telegram was in an

other radicals now filling the city jail

a result of the round-up of anarchists
made by the federal and state offi
cials following the assassination of
four returned soldiers by I. W.
during the Armistice day parade at
Refaxal Bring "Protewt.

"There are half a dozen Russians
