: Washington, Sept, 30. The senute to
day ' unanimously adopted Senator
Kew'g resolution calling on President
"Wilson to furnish U the facts concern
ling the landing of American marines at
Trau, Dalmatia.
.Adoption of the resolution followed
denunciation of republicans by senate
administration leaders, who charged
that a filibuster is being conducted to
dlny tho peace treaty; They charged
that republicans are "everlastingly
providing and harassing" President Wil
son and ''demanded that- such tactics
cease. - . - - ..
In debate which for bitterness and heat
lias not been excelled in the senate for a
long time, Senators Hitchcock and
Swansou angrily declared that tho re
publicans demand on tho tending of
American marines in Dalmatin has been
mado the occasion for ."condemnation
by senators of their own government."
Senator Now had calledup his resolu
tion requesting tUftpriiidtnt to inform
the sonato concerning the landing of
marines. ' '' ' " ; . -
At the same time, Representative
Campbell, Kansas, started an attack in
the house 'against the use of American
forces on orders of foreigners. -
"There is a systematic filibuster go
ing on hore to delay consideration of the
treaty against tho wishes of the peo
ple," Hitchcock declared. "I cm not

I am protesting ajainst this everlasting
disposition to prod and annoy an ad

now for $50. . ,
The Steward Fruit Products company
