Pacific Treaty Is Favorably
Reported By Foreign Re-
lations Commiitee.
Washington, D. C Finally accept
ing a compromise reservation pro
gramme, the foreign relations com
mittee cleared the way for transfer
of the arms conference treaty debate
to the open senate.
The four-power Pacific treaty, which
has proved the most troublesome of
the arms conference agreements In
committee discussions, was ordered
favoralily reported with a blanket res
ervation drawn by committee mem
bers after consultation with President
At the same time, the committee
acted favorably on the naval limita
tion and submarine treaties, voting
virtually without debate and with the
understanding that members could
further present their views on the
senate floor.
In reporting favorably the four
power Pacific treaty the foreign rela
tions committee divided, 10 to 3, with
Senators Borah, republican, Idaho;
Johnson, republican, California, and
Shields, democrat, Tennessee, voting
in the negative. All the other eight
republican member supported the
motion and were joined by two demo
crats, Williams, Mississippi, and Pom
erene, Ohio.
By the same vote, 10 to 3, but with
Senators Williams, Pomerene and
Kellogg, republican, Minnesota, cast
ing the negative votes, the committee
previously had accepted the comprom
ise reservation said to have been ac
cepted by President Harding and pro
viding that the treaty contemplates
"no commitment to armed force, no
alliance, no obligation to join in any
defense." Several proposed substi
tutes and amendments were voted
In the senate the four-power treaty
alone apparently faces a prolonged
debate. Several proposed reservations
not considered by the committee are
to be offered and Senators Borah and
Johnson, among others, are attempt
ing to organize an "irreconcilable" bloc
against ratification. Whether this ele
ment becomes numerically strong is
conceded to rest principally with the
democrats, who are followers of form
er President Wilson.
