There is also evidence that the other
Nations are beginning to realize that
, President Wilson does not dominate the
situation in the United States. An inti
mation of this is carried in a cable
printed in the New York Times today
from its correspondent at the peace
conference. R. V. Oulahan. who at other
times is chief of the Times Washington
, Dureau. Mr. Oulahan, cabling from
"Ex-President Taffs letter to Chair
man Hays, summaries of which have
been published in Paris, has produced
comment in allied quarters that shows
: . . . ; . . rr-rr,-i t a thp
mnxiety to have the American senate
ratify the Versailles treaty without de
lay and permit the United States to en
ter the league of nations that some of
those who deprecate the senate's op
position are becoming resigned to the
rather despairing view that it is better
' to swallow the nasty dose embodied in
the proposed reservations than have the
present world disturbance continue
through the disquietude caused by agi
tation in America.
, Other Looked To.
"One or two perhaps as many as
three of those prominent or fairly so
in the American peace contingent are
of opinion that reservations by the
senate to the league covenant will not
necessarily keep the United States out
cf participation in the execution of the
treaty for any great period.
"Their views, which were brought
tout by requests for opinions as to Mr.
Taft's position, are that other allies
might be disposed to waive their right
to insist that the United States could
not enter the league or join in the
ratification of the peace with Germany
until all other signatories to the treaty
had accepted the senate's amendments."
This is taken in Washington as an
indication that the foreign signatories
have decided that they might consider
the views of someone else in the United
States beside President Wilson. They
have made up their mind that they
must listen to such leaders of Ameri
can thought as Taft, Root and Hughes,
who were excluded from the peace
. conference by the president's hard
Jwiled partisan ship.
They are turning away from Mr.
"Wilson on the theory that such deter
mined senate opposition to the treaty
could never have grown and thrived
.' in the face of all of the protests of
the president unless there was some
demand from the people for strength
ening certain clauses for the better
- protection cf the interests - of this
- country.
League Not Opposed.
The 46 republican senators who are
- opposed to the treaty in its present
form are not necessarily against the
league of nations. The fact is that
r.there are only three last-ditch, irre-
concilable republicans 'Borah of Idaho,
JPoindexter of Washington and Brande-
gee of Connecticut.
The other 43 republicans who make
up the 46 stand ready to support the
I treaty with some good sound props un-
der the league of nations covenant and
, a. better understanding as to the Shan-
tung provision of the peace treaty.
A curious fact is that neither Mr.
I "Wilson nor his followers assail the
'principles involved in the proposed res
t ervations.
Their only argument is that such res
" torvations will compel the resubmission
of the treaty and thereby defeat or pro
' long the discussion. The 43 republicans
who ask reservation along the lines
'adopted by Taft and Root and which
I Hughes is expected to offer, are simply
trying to drive a better bargain. In
' other words these republicans are not
4 trying to destroy the treaty. It is their
desire to improve it
Politics Is Seen.
The dominant opinion in Washington
i ww is that from this moment the fate
of the treaty is very much in the hands
of the Taft-Root-Hughes republican tri-
umvirate and that the proposed tour
of the president will in no matter alter
the outcome. Of course there is politics
in it. There is politics in everything
that is done within this government.
Republicans show general satisfac
tion with the present situation, which
they say is due largely to the clever
- and far-ighted political generalship of
Will H. Hays, republican national chair-
man. Chairman Hays has developed
into a big man, capable of grappling
i with any question and able to steer his
party in safe channels. He has out
generaled Mr. Wilson's forces at every
Wrn by organizing a leadership in be-
half of the United States interosts in
the treaty which will yet accomplish in
this country what Mr. Wilson failed to
achieve for the United States at Paris.
And all the while Honer S. Cummings.
chairman of the democratic national
committee, has been traveling around
the country talking to a few of his
party here and there in platitudes and
; partisan generalities.
One week more of the legislative
- prind and the house will shut up shop
tor four to six weeks, a recess on Au-
. Rust 2 having been agreed upon. The
senate, however, will stay through the
eunimer and continue the consideration
of the general peace treaty and the
," epecial treaty with France if the presi-
dent sees tit to submit the latter docu
ment at any time soon.
