23 DEMOCRATS AND 39 REPUBLI
CANS RECORDED AGAINST
DEMOCRATS JOIN REPUBLICANS
Resolution Will Be Sent to House To-
i dav and Leaders There PLiti to
Have It Adopted Thursday.
Washington. June 1. President
Wilson's plea for an American inun
date over Armenia was rejected in
the senate today by a vote of more
than 2 to 1.
Thirteen democrats cast their votes
with the united republican member
ship on the final roll call and the
resolution "respectfully declining ' to
grant congressional authority for th?
mandate was adopted 52 to 23 in the
form drafted by the republican lead
ers. The resolution will be sent to the
house tomorrow and the leaders there
plan to adopt it without change on
Thursday. They say they hope for
as decisive a majority as the measure
was given in the senate.
In the debate today, the democrat
ic leaders counselled delay and tried
in vain to put the decision over until
the next session of congress'. Scarce
ly a voice was raised in out-and-out
advocacy of accepting the mandate
and on motion to amend the resolu
tion so that the requested authority
be given, only thirteen senators, all
democrats, voted in the affirmative.
Recorded against the motion were
twenty-three democrats and thirty
In their effort to ward off action,
which they argued was advisable be
cause of the peace treaty deadlock,
the minority leaders had better re
sults. The resolution to send the
resolution back to committee with
instructions that it be "reported af
ter the ratification of a peace treaty
with the central powers", mustered
almost solid democratic support, but
was lost, 43 to 34.
Hitchcock Offers Amendment
Senator Hitchcock presentee an
amendment, which he said would
make the resolution acceptable to
him, providing for a joint commis
sion of Americans and Armenians to
lehabilitate the new republic econ
omically. It was rejected, 43 to 34,
with only two republicans, Senator
Kenyon of Iowa, and Townsend of
Michigan, supporting it.
Senator Walsh of Montana and
several other democrats declared the
foreign relations committee had
drafted the resolution hastily. In
reply, Senator Lodge, Massachusetts,
the republican leader, pointed out
that the sub-committee had made an
exhaustive investigation of the Ar
menian situation before the pres
ident's request was received.
"I do not desire", said Senator
Lodge", to have this country giv? to
the world the impression that it doe?
not sympathize with the Armenian
people. They are a gallant people.
I think they deserve aid. But there
are many ways to give them aid
without involving the Unit?d States."
