Wsshlngton. pec 13.—The Senate to day. by a vote of So to 17. adopted Ihe Foreign Relations Committee amendment I to ihe Hay-Pauncofote treaty. The amendment follows: Insert at end of Section $ of Article 11, ! the following: “It is agre. and, however, that none of the Immediately fori going condition! und stip ulations In sections numlsred one. two. three, four and live of this article shall j apply to measures which the Fulled < States may Und It naeessray to lake for i securing by tls own forces the defense of the Foiled States and the maintenance of public order." In accordance with previous agreement the S.-nate In executive ee-elon Ihe vote at 3 o’clock by yeas nml nays. The negative votes Were as follows; llnlr.l. Beveridge, Frye. Foster, Hans brcUgh, Kind ay, Mason, McCumber, Mc- Knery, Mcßildi. Morgan, Money, Stew art. T-liman. Wellington, Wolcott and Gitlllngv r. After Ihe vote other amendments re celved the attenlioii of Ihe Senate for a brief time, but none of them was acted 1 upon. 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. MOSEY WANTS ABROGATION.
