SHANTUNG RESERVATION MODIFIED
CIIAIJGE propoesd by bi-partisaij
COilFERDiCE ACCEPTID BY SENATE
LATE TODAY; VOTE STANDS 48-21
Washington, Mar. 4. The Shantung reservation to the peace
treaty as modified in the bi-partisan compromise conference was
re-adopted late today by the senate.
The vote was 48 to 21 as compared to a vote of 53 to 41 when
the reservation first was adopted in November.
, Tea democrats, senators cnamDer
jaln, Oregon: Gore, Oklahoma; Ilea
deraon and Pittman, Nevada; Meyers,
Jlontana; Nugent Idaho; Reed, Mls
court; Shields, Tennessee; Smith, Ceor
jrla, and Thomas, Colorado, voted for
the reservation. In November It was
supported by only five democrats.
Making its first change in the re
publican reservations to the peace
treaty which were adopted last No
vember the senate voted today strike
from the Shantung reservation all di
rect reference to Japan and China.
The change, worked out In the re
cent bi-partisan conferenfo, had the
approval of democratic leaders and
w. eplud, 69 to 2, Senators Reed,
Missouri and Sutherland, West Vir
ginia, voting against it.
Senator Lodge told the senate that
the modification had been suggesed by
democratic members of the bi-partisan
conference, and did not change the
meaning of the reservation "one Iota."
It has been thought "more civil," he
said, to omit mention of Japan and
China "by name.
Although Senators Lenroot. Wls
consln and Kellogg, Minnesota, de
clared the democrats had agreed In
the bi-partisan conference to accept
the reservation as amended. Senator
Hitchcock of Nebraska, the democrat
ic leader, declared that the revised
draft was unacceptable. He presented
a substitute, arguing that the repub
lican reservation could no "no pos
sible good" toward restoring to Chi
na any rights In Shantung.
Under Senator Hitchcock's substi
tute, the United States would express
Its understanding that the rights ob
tained thru the treaty by Japan In
the Shantung peninsula would be re
turned to China.
