Rejection of Entire Treaty By
President or Senate Certain
If Clause Is Approved as Part
Of Interpretations.
, By Hugh Bailie
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
Washington, Nov. 14.-Rejection of the peace treaty
bv the senate or by President Wilson himself is assured
if the resolution of ratification goes to a vote containing
the reservation to article 10, already adopted by senate,
sitting in committee of the whole.
, . - This was the opinion in administra
tion quarters here today, based on the
nresldcnt's own words, frequently re
iterated, during his recent tour of the
United States. Whether the president
then will carry oit his threat to send
leadinc treaty opponents, Including
Senator Lodge, to Weimar, to negotiate
a new treaty remains to be seen.
Wilson Gives Warning.
Wilson has served notice mat ne
would consider adoption of the reser
vation to article 10 rejection of the
whole treaty. There iB nothing to indi
cate that he has changed this attitude.

The governor's statement follows:

Clyde Paton of Rochester was fired
at three times.
All of the bullets struck the auto
mobile in whioh Paton was riding.
Following the attempted murder of
George Pnxton, while he was cross
ing the bridge between Centralia ana
Chehalis early Thursday niorning, the
shots directed at Paton made the fact
stand out more significantly that the
radicals who are being sought in this
vicinity are not altogether on the de
fensive. The large American flag which flies
from a hill near the heart of the city
of Chehalis was ripped by a rifle bul
let yesterday. The shot ns evidently
fired at long range.
