WASHINGTON, Jan. 10. Efforts
to break the senate peace treaty
deadlock and keep the treaty out of
, the political campaign were advanced
a 'step today when republican sen
ators adocatinc ratification drew up
; a counter proposal to the set of com
promise reservations submitted to
them early in the week by a group
. of democrats.
S j ! Both Parties Act
The republican.- proposal, to which
its sponsors said Senator Lodge had
given " tentative assent, was under
; st6od to deal only with some of th.?
collateral issues in the reservation
bhtroversy, leaving to future nego
tiations the troublesome questions of
article ten. and equality of voting
power In the league of nations.
Some of the democratic sugges
tions were said to have been accept
ed, including a change in the repub-
:-' Mean reservation program of last
'session so that the senate qualifica
tions would not have to be accepted
affirmative by" the other ... powers.
; 'Agreement to these' Changs, how
ever, was understood to be condltion-
- al on certain concessions by demo-;
. crats in regard to other reservations, J

The counter proposal was drafted
by mftd reservation republicans and
":. submitted to Senator Lodge before
being laid oefore the democrats. Sen
ators of this group said afterward
that Mr. Lodce showed willingness
. tot hae the negotiations proceed."
