Acceptance Not Certain
The latent advices from Berlin and
Weiirnr reiterate that Germany will
not accept the revised treaty unless
it contains important modifications.
Through unofficial presn reports the
Ocrninu. government has btfen apprised
from lime to time of the alterations
anil in this way already is in possession
of the main concessions.
The optimism in allied peace circles,
which hnd lieen so noticeable in the.
last few days, had changed today to
a feeling of uncertainty as to whether
the Germans will find the modifications
sufficient to warrant acceptance. This
altitude was reflected by the public
which eagerly canned every printed

Covenant Takes Power
To Make War Away.
Washington, June 17. Warning dem
ocrats against any stand that would
deny th-a senate or the Americas people
opportunity of mature deliberation up
on .the league of nations, Senator Knox
today opened the senate fight over his
resolution to virtually separate the
peace treaty and the league covenant.
"11 democrat' senators constitute a
party to oppose all efforts to secure
full consideration of this grost matter;
if they do not cese to listen to and
obey the mere fiat of a psrtisan
executive; if they remain firm in their
stand against the constitutional rights
of the senate fully and fairly to con
sider this question upoa its merits;
and if ther persist ia thoir denial of
the sovereign right of the people to
deliberate upon and reach a decision
concerning it; if this is to be the
party attiltulc of senators who oppose,
then I eay here and now iu all sober
nesSj I hnll ibe the last to shrink from
the issue which they so force," said
Knox. "And 1 will say further, if
to stand for the rights of the senate
as a co-eqimj part of the treaty making
power is a manifestation of partisan
ship, then 1 am a partisan; if to do-
imand that tho people, of the United
oiaies jgnnu nave iign to maae up
their own minds as to whether or not
we thall put ourselves under the dom
ination of the balance of tho world,
thon, thank lod, I dm a partisan."
Declaring his object is Jo obtain
immediate peace for the United States
and the world, Knox said:
"What I want now to secure Is
what the whulo people of the United
Statts ardently wish peace, immediato
permanent peace. Six long weary
months have been consumed by the
peace conference in Paris ty merely
drawing the peace terms that are to
be forced upon our enemies, six long
weary months of secret quiUbliiig, bar
tering and quarreling.
"And still we wait. Meanwhile
Europe is in turmoil, to the point of
anarchy and chaos. Our own country
remains in a status of war, under irk
some laws inimical to our freedom.
Influences hostile to our government,
and its institutions thrive and propa
gate. The iicople arc torn by unecr-
I taiiities and industry sad commerce lag
Knox admitted his resolution would
in effect sever the treaty and the
covenant, but said that an "unnamed
member" of the American peace dele
gation had keen quoted in press dis
patches from Paris saying that "while
the covenant is part of the treaty,
it does nott actually deal with the

of 1018, 1919, 1920 and 1921. An affi

which was not reduced to a written
contract. II. S. Oilo, president of the

he statements in the affidavit of Mr.
Paulus were untrue, in so far as ttie

Paris, June 17. If Germany refuses

the greatest and most decisive cam
paigns in history.
While the public generally is inclines!
to think of an advance into Gtumy

Thrasj Drives Planned
The allies campaign, according to
the highest French military eritics and
authorities would embrace three gruat
routes of invasion, designed to break,
down all possible defense, seize tho
most important points in Germany aa4
