On saturday Knox came j from his Home in Pennsylvania to have a three hour conference with president Harding. On monday Washington became aware that of. Itmann who is a member of the Vivian Mission and has participated in his conferences had cabled ibis people in Pari that the league of nations and the treaty of Versailles have been totally scrapped by America and that the Knox Resolution for a separate peace with Germany would shortly be passed. News outran the facts on tuesday most of the newspapers of the country printed dispatch to which High importance a naturally ascribed to the effect that the administration s foreign policies had been determined and that those policies included Hie Complete barring of the league arid the treaty and a separate peace with Germany through the Knox Resolution. On that Day the news i reached what May be Callet it ? highest Peak in the direction 0t forecasting the More or less immediate passage of the Knox Resolution. Tile bulk of this news came directly or indirectly from irreconcilable leaders in the Senate.

Senath trying for Load the explanation of All this seem to be that the irreconcilable leaders in the Senate Are More eager and have one further than the administration has the truth is that just beneath the surface of events there is undeniably a certain amount of Strain on the part of the Senate leaders to achieve a larger part in the initiation of the foreign policies and to have a larger dominance in the management of them than a heretofore been the Case. The traditional an i constitutional role of the Senate in our foreign affairs is to provide advice and consent to matters in which the executive has the exclusive Power of initiative. The Senate cannot make a. Treaty nor begin negotiations for a treaty nor have any it Importunity to act by on or expires.? itself about a treaty until after the executive has completed the negotiation.? of the treaty and formally turns it Over to the Senate for advice a ii i consent.
