Tuft would submit the treaties In their mangled form to either power for approval. Stripped of the clause which it was claimed wbuld invade the constitutional treaty mak ltig power of the senate and with many other limitations added. the general arbitration treaties between the United States and England and France proposed by President Taf and Secretary Knox as forerunners o universal Peace, wre ratilied by the senate yesterday by a vote of 76 to 3 The senators who voted against the ratification were I.orimer, Martlne and Heed. The two are democrats. President Taft before leaving for hi speaking trip to Toledo and Chicago did not comment upon the senate action. It Is known he had hoped to see the treaties 1 passed unamended, had daularad publicly, "however that certain amendments would not Ue objectionable. - Virtually, the treaties, by the sen ato's action, are "up In the air." their modillBd form they must be re ferred to England ind France. Senator Irfulge and others wh fought the senate's action, declared that the alteration, of the mnch-dlS' cussed clause three of article three would imperil the success of the trea tics.

Senator Pn on and his colleagues who forced the modification declared that nothing had been lost in tb ciiuve f peace because forty-live no Hons were, now parties to the Hague convention. Advocates IMscoik crtcd. The final action came at the end of a lung day of debate and follow ing ballots on numerous amendments. The administration senators, though figuring on a close vote on the third clause, and clOBety' following the roll call, were surprised and confused by the result. Their view was that the elimination was achieved by the mas sing of a practically solid democratic vote with a sprinkling of republicans. The treaty with England was first taken up, and the first vote tame promptly at 4:30 o'clock on an amend ment proposed by the foreign relations committee to eliminate clause three of article three the provision around which the fight has centered, and on this the motion was carried 42 to 40, Clause three would have submitted to a joint high commission the u.ies- tlon as to whether or not a difference was subject to arbitration and its de clslon was made final. It was con tended that the clause would take from the senate Its prerogative hi part of the treaty-making power, and along that line the battle was waged from first to last. The committee had at first recom mended the elimination of the provis ion and then, practically nullified that action by bringing In an amendment to the resolution of ratification reserv ing all the rights of the senate. The miirlnal recommendation remained on the calendar, however, and when the vntins was reached proved too strong to be pushed nut of the way sven by the late reaction of the committee. Generally speaking the democrats voted for the amendment ami the republicans against it, but there were executions. The resullt was received with many quiet manifestations of satisfaction and the opponents of the general purport of the agreements then went t wifvk (with renewed energy to procure further modifica tions. Senator Culberson presented an amendment eliminating from the terms of the treaty all questions of Junior or Independence as well as an questions affecting the vital Interests of this country or of third parties, but It was defeated 45 to 87. An amend ment by Senator Bacon providing for a wider elimination was at nrst lost on a tie vote of 41 to 41, but when later the provision was presented In connection with the resolution of ratification It was adopted 48 to JO. After the first action on the Bacon provision Senator Chamberlain of Washington presented an amendment to the first clause of the first article of the fieaty providing that they should not apply to questions of af fecting the admission -of aliens Into the 1'i'Hed P'-ites or the admission of ! - i s 1 ' -') Washington, March 8.
