ON PEACE PLAN
Proposal of Nebraskan to Ob
tain Rider Embodying
League Covenant Strongly
Opposed by Leaders. v
taicac TriboM-OmiiliB B. LM.d VVIr..
Washington, April 12. The joint
resolution declaring a state of peace
vith Germany, which was passed
in the house by a large majority
will be transmitted to the senate
'.oday and referred to the commit
tee on foreign relations which will
postpone consideration of the mea
lure until the return ' of Senator
Knox the latter part of the week.
Leaders of the movement to bring
ibout a reconsideration of the peace
treaty and its league of nations
:ovenant strongly condemn Senator
Hitchcock's intention to move th
ittachment of a rider to the peace
resolution embodying the covenant.
When Samuel Colcord of New
York was asked his opinion of the
peace resolution he said:
, Hopes Proposal is Lost.
"Upon the merits of the resolu
tion I express no opinion. I do not
know the views upon it of the men
whose mandate sent me here. But
as a friend of the treaty, I will say
it is to be hoped that the future will
prove that Senator Hitchcock's
threat to attach the league of na
tions covenant as a ridejt to the
peace resolution was thrown out in
banter or jest and not with serious
intent to put the threat into execu
tion. Or I would trust that it Is
offered with a motive which I do
"I would hope that much for Mr.
Hitchcock's own sake, for any man
with average common' sense, and
surely a quick, discerning public
will know that returning the treaty
to the senate merely to put the
other side in a hole and kill the
treaty in doing it, must be the act
not of a friend of the league of na
tions but of an enemy, -
Ask Workable Plan.
"It would be the act of a very
dangerous enemy, too, because, ap
pearing in the cloak of a friend, he
would thrust the Brutus dagger
through Caesar's heart. '. I have too
much respect for Senator - Hitch
cock to believe that he really means
"What we ask, what the sensible,
workable plan for the entry of the
United States into the league of na
tions proposed in the appeal to the
president, the senate and. the people
of the : United States, with the en
dorsement of such men as Cardinal
Gibbons and Dr. Lowell, requires,
is that the president, hold the treaty
back until such time as he can re
turn it to the senate in full agree
ment with a sufficient number of
senators on both sides to make it
certain that the two-thirds vote re
quired to ratify it will, make it law,
and not return the treaty with in
tent to put upon the other side the
blame for killing it."
