lAjialyzes Features of League
Covenant in Address
to Senate
By Associated Press.
Washington. June 18. —A plea
against hasty acceptance of the
League of Nations was made to the
Senate yesterday by Senator Knox,
Republican, of Pennsylvania, in a
carefully prepared address analyzing
features of the league covenant and
cautioning that its ratification would
mean a far departure from Ameri
can traditions.
The league, he declared, would in
evitably result in a super-govern
ment empowered to act even upon
the domestic affairs of member na
tions and to preserve for all time the
territorial boundaries shortly to be
fixed by the Peace Treaty. He as
serted the new Monroe doctrine pro
vision would efface that policy from
International affairs, and argued
that the amendment adopted to
cover withdrawal of league members
would make such withdrawal "abso
lutely impossible."
The speech marked the beginning
of debate on Mr. K* >x's resolution
declaring the terms of peace should
he ratified without delay and the
league of Nations proposal left for
later consideration.
"1 ask for time." he said, "merely
to consider whether or not, under
the covenant as drawn, the power
to put us at war will still rest with
us or be placed in a body out
side our own government, and if
placed outside, whether or not such
lodging of the sovereign power is
"I ask only for time to deliberate
whether or not we shall put it be
yond our power to increase the size
of our Army and our Navy in times
of dire emergency without first con
sulting the wish or desires of other
The Knox resolution, expected to
result in a bitter debate, did not
come technically before the Senate,
as the Senator made his address in
the midst of an appropriations bill
Additional plans for President
Wilson's speaking tour for the league
are revealed in official circles. It be
came known that the trip probably
would cover a period of three weeks
and follow directly the President's
appearance before a joint session of
the Senate and House to present and
explain the treaty and the league
covenant. It was said Mr. Wilson
would leave FVance on June 24 or 25
should Germany sign the Peace
Treaty, and probably would arrive
here about July 3.

"Villa of a Thousand Kinds of
Roses," Awaits
Rome, June 18. —Prince Von Bue
low's house on the Pinclan hill,
known as the "Villa of a thousand
kinds of roses." is ready awaiting
the return of the German diplomat.
The villa was called by its present
name because of the lavish profu
sion, both in number and variety,
of the roses climbing the walls and
studded everywhere in the garden.
They are blooming now and pre
sent a magnificent appearance.
There are types of roses among the
collection probably unknown in
America. There is the celebrated
Italian orange rose in abundant
quantities. There are roses of mixed
colore chief among them being the
"Rosa novita," a rose of rich red,
changing gradually to a pronounced
orange and yellow. There are mul
titudes of red, white, pink and yel
low roses. They fill the garden giv
ing it an artistic appearance and
filling the amtosphere for blocks

The gardener is still at work in
the Von Buelow villa. When his
work of attending to the tender
plants is through for the day. he sits
near the big high gate at the en
trance in an attitude of expectancy,
wondering how long the arrival of
peace will detain his master, who
has expressed in a recent interview
his desire to return to Italy to see
his roses.

Indians Welcome Warriors
Who Fought With the
Prince Albert, Sask., June 18.—
Eight stalwart young red-skinned
warriors who fought in France with
the Canadian army were welcomed
home by their tribesmen on the
Snake Plain Indian reserve by the
first scalp dance held in Canada in
forty years. Captured German hel
mets, bayonets, buckles and cart
ridge boxes were waved aloft by the
dancers in lieu of scalps.
When the returned heroes stepped
off the train on the transcontinent
al line of the national railway, they
were greeted by several hundred In
dians and escorted to the reserve.
The young men of the tribe clad in
buckskin, moccasins, feathers and
war paint started up the scalp dance
on the prairie at the edge of the
village. As they chanted their war
songs to the music of tomtoms and
rattles the eight heroes leaped into
the circle in their khaki uniforms
and shaking their captured trophies
torn from dead Germans on battle
fields and overseas and emitting
shrill tribal warhoops, danced with
the others.
After the scalp dance. Thunder
cloud, a venerable war chief, whose
face is seamed by a livid scar from
forehead to ja"w left by a battleax
in an ancient battle with the Black
feet, made an address of welcome
in English.
"The hearts of your people." he
said, "are glad to-day because you
have come home safe from the great
war. You proved yourselves brave
men and a terror to your enemies.
Your tribesmen were proud to send
you forth on the warpath to fight
beside your white brothers in a just
Chief Dreaver, present head of the
tribe, also spoke. When the address
es were concluded, the eight soldiers
were presented with blankets, moc
casins and money. Nine Indians of
the reserve went to war. One was
killed in battle and lies buried in
Seventy-ninth Division
Man Re-enlists in Army
"I noticed the same conditions
immediately after the Spanish-
American War. The boys who had
a taste of the Army made up their 1
minds that it was a wonderful
career." 6aid Colonel J. *5. Kemper,
of the Army Recruiting Station, 325
Market street, Harrisburg, yester
day, when Paul Edwin Born, of
Mount Penn, near Reading, came
in to enlist. Young Bom was a
first-class private in Company C,
Three Hundred and Fourteen In
fantry. and with his company took
part in the battles of the Meuse,
Argonne, Grande Montague "and
Troyon. He has come to the con
clusion that the advantages offered
at present in the Army are so ex
ceptional that he wants to remain
in the service.
As soon as the bulletin wps flash
ed that the American troops ha<
gone into action on the border. Born
presented himself to the recruiting
officer for re-enlistment. He desires
to get into active service as soon
as possible. He is not particular
whether it be on the border or over
seas, in case the Germans should
prove hostile once more.
