speeches from the democratic side of
the chamber in. favor of unqualified
ratification was fired fin a speech by
senator Jones, jncw Mexico. Jones, one
ot the treaty's most ardent supporters

debate upon it will consume from four
to six weeks.
Lodge also put into the record

tue aimed note telling Austria to take
the treaty just ns it was written. Lodge
said he was given the treaty by a Chi

following Jones' speech, he would ask

. declared opponents of the league of na

nave given to this covenant of
the league of nations all of the care

of which I am capable, and I fail to
find anything which even tends to
justify those invectives which have

"I can understand how the wisdom
of some of the provisions of this cove

there should be no difference of opin

Pueblo, Colo., Sept. 15. The lynching
of two Mexicans here Saturday night
wns a 'law and order" protest against
Governor Shoup's leniency toward con
victed murderers from this section, lead
ers of the mob declared today.'. '
Although Santos Ortez, one of the
lynch victims was a cousin of I'uncho
Villa, the hangings were not due. to
hntred of Mexicans and was entirely
thoughtless of . international complica
tions, the mob leaders state.

murderer and a stay of execution

though they were confessed muiderors
of two prominent men in this section, in

their own hands, it is stated.
Tho large Mexican quarter here is
quiet today. No outbreak is expected.
Ortez and Jos Gonzales, the victims,
probably will be buried in potters field
without any large number of mourners
from among their fellow Mexicans. A
protest is expected, however, from the
Carranza government to the American
state department. Ortcz and Gonzales
killed a policeman and were lynched
within 24 hours.

He took exception to the entire atti

are to be accomplished.
