By a vote to 8, the committee decided to of amend the treaty to provide for the restoration of .Shantung to China. The change made was extremely simple; it merely strikes out the word "Japan" and substitutes the word "China" in the section which disposes of Germany's former rights in the Shantung peninsula. Senator McCuniber, North Dakota, Republican, voted with the Democrats against the Shautung amendment. Otherwise, the vote was of .a strict party nature. Action Presages Further Delay. The effect of the comiuitte's action, if sustained by the senate, will be to send the peace treaty back to th other principal allied powers. As Japan, according to l'rsldent Wilson, refused to sign the treaty unless given Shantung, and as France, Great Britain and Italy are bound by their see ret treaties to support the Japanese claims to Shantung, it is considered extremely probable that the amendment, if sustained in the senate, would create a deadlock among the powers. Says Senate Will Reverse Action. Senator Pomerene of Ohio, Democratic member of the foreign relations committee, declared the committee's action had no significance and predicted the senate would referse It. Senator Johnson of California, Republican, praised the action of the committee in wiping out the proposal to "guarantee the infamy of the Shantung settlement by our treasury and by our blood."
