After Ihe vote other amendments re
celved the attenlioii of Ihe Senate for a
brief time, but none of them was acted 1
The amendment which prohahly attroct
te I moat attention was offered by Sena
tor Elkins anil Is as follows:
"Nothing In this treaty shall be con
strued to prevent tht l ulled Siatea from
acquiring sufficient security and sover
eignty to prevent it from building, ope-r
--ailnjt. maintaining, controlling and de
fending the sill .anal (referring to the
pro|*oe. I Nicaraguan can.ill. or for any
.dher ptirpoae that the United Slates
may deem for Its bed Interests."
Other 1 •uenilnietils -uurteeterl.
Other amendments were suggested by
Senators Tillman, Allen, Money and
Thurston. Senator Thurston's sugges
tion provides that the United Slates may
defend the canal and Senator Tillman's
makes Ihe committee amendment adopted
by to-day's vote apply to all the provi
sion* of Article 11. This would hove the
• IT. ct. tt is believed, of nullifying the pro-
Vl!ion of Section 7 ~f llk- article providing
against the foriilb ullon of lbs canal.
Other amendm. nts were offered, strik
ing out Section* 3 and 7 of Artel# 11. Sen
ator Teller said tha* If Senator Elkins'
amendment should lie adopted he would
not press his amendment for the modifi
cation of Section 7 so as to omit provi
sion against the fortification of the canal.
Senator Lodge, in charge of the bill,
when all amendments were submitted,
moved an adjournment until to-morrow,
which motion prevailed.
Elkins Wants Hndlcnl Changes.
Previous to the vole Senator Elkins
made a speech advocating radical altera
tions of the treaty. He favored th* com
mittee amendment, but said It did not go
fur enough. He believed, be said, if the
canal was :o be constructed by the gov
ernment of the Untied States the p*ople
woulri demand complete and absolute con
trol over the canal Itself, and also the
right to exercise their own judgment, as
a nation, not only In acquiring property
In connection wlih the canal, but If need
be. In securing sovereignty over It. He
contender! that to pursue this course in
volved no violation of International rights,
and In defense of this |*dtlon said the
United States had made an offensive and
dcfcni-lvs treaty with France In 1753. and
soon afterwards had repudiated that obli
gation. He also cited other precedents and
authorities. He argued. In short, that
changed eomllllotia warrant a change In
conduct and In position. •
Later the Republican Committee on
Order of Business held a session to decide
u|K*n the future line of action with ref
erence. to the treaty as amended. Subse
quently Senator Lodge, who was with the
committee, stated that the Senate would
proceed with the treaty and that he would
continue his efforts to have It ratified.
