tion of the arbitration treaties with Oreat
Britain and Franc has stirred unex

it m ravored bv three-fourth of
the republican senators, who accept It as
a happy compromise of all difference.
The amendment, presented at the for
eign relation committee meeting yester
day, wa Introduced by Mr. Lodge In
executive session of the senate today.
nefnra tha Lodes? modification was sug
gested seven or eight democratic senators
had Indicated willingness to support
the treaties, some without amendment
and other with amendment, which would
reserve from arbitration all questions In
volving strictly American subjects. These
democrats todayslook the position that
tha Lodge amendment conflicted with the
treaties themselves - Consequently, these
senators object to It a a practical nulli
fication of the treaties' vital parts.
The last c'aus of article S cf the
treaties provide for final determination
of the Justiciability of actions by tha Joint
high commission. These other democratic

to the Lodz amendment wouia e to
onrit entirely the last clause of article
I as originally was suggested by the ma
jority of the foreign relation committee.
Their argument waa that the effect of the

to restore all the senate' prerogatives of

KNOX DISCUSSES LODGE
WASHINGTON. Jan. 1L "It Is a mis
take," said Secretary Knox today, "to
allege that the resolution of ratification
of the peace treaties proposed by Senator
Lodge Involves a surrender by the ad
ministration or the seriate of any position
they bold in respect to tha treatlea. The
senate objection to the 'third article of the
treaties waa that it could fee construed
ta take away the senate' power to ap
prove or disapprove a special agreement
for arbitration after the commission had
reported the difference arbitrable under
he first artlcla.
"The administration a position was that
It could not be so construed.'

Mr. Carnegie was asked It he agreed

"I don't believe that any corporation

that we could run around corporations.
You take thirty-five young men Inter

with such an organization in any busi
