Opposition Lacks Enough Votes
to Secure Adoption of Two
Washington, D. C. After a stormy
debate, the senate rejected by a di
vision almost on party lines the first
two of the proposed amendments to
the four-power Pacific pact.
At the peak of their strength, with
11 short of the full membership pres
ent and voting, the opposition to the
treaty marshaled 26 democratic and
four republican yotes, within two of a
third of the full senate membership,
but three less than enough to upset
the two-thirds needed for final ratifi
cation when all senators participate
In this vote.
The first of the two amendments
acted upon was offered by Senato
Robinson, democrat, Arkansas, and
provided that the four powers should
refrain from aggression against non
signatory as well as signatory nations,
and that all interested nations, wheth
er signatories to the treaty or not,
should be invited to any conference
over a Pacific controversy. The pro
posal was lost, 30 to 56. Later a
similar amendment in different form
was presented by Senator Walsh, dem
ocrat, Montana, and was voted down,
27 to 50.
On both rollcalls four republicans,
Borah of Idaho, Johnson of California,
France of Maryland and La Follette of
Wisconsin, voted in the affirmative,
while an equal number of democrats,
Pomerene of Ohio, Ransdell of Louis
iana, Underwood of Alabama and
Williams of Mississippi, joined the

Paris. The allied finance ministers
signed an agreement here for the dis
tribution of the first billion gold marks
Of German reparations. The agree
ment disregards the American claim
of priority for its expenses in connec
tion with occupation of the Rhineland,
so far as the actual sharing of this
money is concerned. It recognises the
claim, however, by a special clause
which states that all the agreement?
on this question are subject to Amer
lean rights as the various governments
may establish them, the finance minis
ters contending that they do not have
the power to decide this question.

Questions that have been ralsod in the

some senators that it "was conceived'

Washington, D. C. The new sol

Replying to a request for the seo

bill, Mr. Mellon, in a letter to Chair
man Fordaey of the house ways sad
means committee, made public by the
treasury, sharply criticised the feat
ures of the proposed measure provid
ing for loans by banks upon adjusted
service certificates as indirect and
"forced" borrowing by the govern
ment. He suggested that the "direct
and regular way" to provide tor a
paid-up endowment insurance feature
would be to authorlie Insurance cer

ioy loans to be financed by the govern
ment. A favorable report on the long con
troverted soldiers' bonus bill was or
dered by the house ways aud means
committee by a vote of 19 to S.
