WASHINGTON, Sept. .-(Speclal Tel

last moment of voting by the national

of the Gate City a proposition would be
received from Omaha Inviting the vet

The fight occurred over the proposed
resolution to commend the foreign policy
of President Wilson.
Following Is the resolution as It was In
troduced and as it was finally adopted
after the fight:
"Resolved, That this congress com

critical and trying periods of its history,
