ote On Amendment Is Held
Probable Before Adjourn
ment This Evening.
Washington, Oct. 16. (United Press.)
The senate today defeated the Shan
tung amendment to the peace t?eaty.
The vote was 55 noes to 35 yeas.
Washington, Oct. 16. (United Press.)
r Demand that the senate hold night
sessions to speed uo action on the peace
treaty was niado by Senator Hale,
Maine, republican, in a speech today. -
"The country wants acton and wants
it now," ho declared.
"I think that everybody in the sen
ate and in the country is dick and tired
of the whole debate. All of us know
exactly how we are going to vote. If
we really want to dispose of this treaty
the way to do it is to hold night ses
sions and force the matter to a conclus
ion." Hale expressed warm disapproval
both of tho Shantung provision and the
-voting arrangement 'in the league of na
tions, but declared he will oppose the
Shantung and the Johnson amendments.
Ho will support reservations covering
fiiem. '.' '
Senator Kellogg, Minnesota, speaking
against the Shantung amendment, held
that our "hands off policy In-filma-tung
for twenty years during Germany's
possession of it should be continued. He
favored reservations withholding Amer
ica's approval of Japan's course. "We
cannot assume the full burden of Per
Eastern adjustments," he said.
"I regret that so many hard things
have been said of Japan at a time when
we are seeking to composo the affairs
of the world," said Senator Townsend,
Michigan, The treaty is tho best that
can be expected at prosent, he concluded
and it will not bear such drastic changes
as tho Shnntung amendment. Town
send would be satisfied with reserva
tions but unless they clearly state
America's position on the Shantung
transfer he will vote against the treaty.
, Sonator Smoot, T.Ttnh, republican, de-
flared that "under no condHion" will
Be vote for the treaty without rcsei-va-
tions. He announced he will vote for a
reservation covering the Shantung
amendment but that he will vote against
the amendment itself.
Senator Jones, Washington, announ
ced he will vote for the Shantung
amendment, and that if it was defeatev
he will vote for the strongest possible
At 2:30 p. m. the Shantung amend
ment had been directly under consider
ation by the senate over 12 hours and
Wfcnore than a score of senators had spok
en. A vote was expected at any time
by senate leaders on both sides.
Senator Johnson, California, denoun
ced the Shantung provision of the trea
ty as "abominable and detestable."
Mr, and Mrs. John Carr, 80 and 83
years old, Respectively, hale, hearty and
hanny, will celebrate their 64th wedding
anniversary this evening at tho Baptist

She was 16 and her gallant husband was

And thev look forward to many more
years of happy married life.
Mrs. Carr, blandly smiling, said Thuis

70th wedding anniversary, too, I'm sure.
Both John and I think so."
