FIGHT TO AMEND] TREATY. o U. S. and Germany MAY CONCLUDE SEPARATE PEACE. Washington, June 12th — Senator Ster- ling has introduced into the Senate a re- solution providing that the peace treaty shall he ratified only on the condition that the United States reserves to itself the right to determine through Congress the justice or expediency of the fulfilment of Article 10 of the League of Nations coven- ant. The latest developments iff the Senate are regarded as the opening of a great fight to amend the treaty. If the course of the campaign be successfully followed the Republican leaders admit that the result may finally be the conclusion by America of a separate peace treaty with Germany. It is expected that a very bitter debate will take place. It is thought in some quarters that the intention is to kill the covenant of the League after having divorced it from the rest of the treaty. PLEDGES ELIMINATED. I The Foreign Relations Committee eli- minated from the resolution the section I which pledges the United States to come l to the rescue of the Allies in the event of a future war of aggression, it being thought that-this clause mas unnecessary. —Exchange. Ifc-. By Article 10 of the League Covenant, the signatories undertake to respect and to preserve against external aggression the territorial integrity and existing poli- tical independence of all States members of the League. LEAGUE OF NATIONS. I "Choice Between Life and Death. I -1 A great demonstration in suppoir 01 wb League of Nations was held on Friday night in the Albert Hall, which was packed. Viscount Grey, former Foreign Secretary,'presided, and he was supported by Lord Robert Cecil, M.P., who repre- sented the British Government in Paris in .connection with the establishment of the League. On the platform were the Arch- bishop of Canterbury, the American Am- bassador, Dr. John Clifford, Lord Balfour of Burleigh, and Mr. J. R. Clynes, M.P. Viscount Grey declared that the Gov- ernment had given the Covenant form, but it was the people alone that could give it life. The League was a choice between life and dtpth in the world. Lord Robert Cecil declared that it was the merest folly to say that the idea of the League of Nations wa? the fancyof Presi- dent. Wilson. The evils from which the world was now suffering onre due the war itself, and there was rtobedy, net a criminal or a lunatSc, who worn Id not be prepared to protoot the world from a re- petition of the soOBfge. This was to be a League of Nations, not a League of Gov- ernments, and if it was to be a reality Germany as well as Russia mujit in time I me included in its scqpe. AGREEMENT REACHED.

I HEADLESS BODY I SHOCKING DISCOVERY .11 NEAR SWANSEA A shocking discovery was made on Saturday morning on the incline near Brynhyfryd which lies between the Mynydd Newvdd Colliery and the Lan- dore Canal. At about 10.20 t.m. Thomas Phillips, a man who is employed by ]! Messrs. Vivian and Sons on the incline, saw a full journey of trams proceed ( down the incline, and an empty journey go up, and after the trucks had passed he observed somthing lying between the two 6ets of rails. On proceeding to the spot he was horrified to find it was the headless body of a man, with the head lying some two yards or so away. Police and doctor were at once summoned, and Dr. Hubert Thomas, on arrival, found in the man's pocket an insurance card which established his identity as David Thoma.s, of 31, Park View, Gorseinon. FATAL SHORT CUT. [ Deceased, who was apparently about 50 years oi age, was engaged at a Morriston steel works, and it is surmised that he was proceeding home for the week-end and had struck acroes the incline, which is private property, with the object of cutting off a considerable part of the dis- tance. Nobody witnessed the actual happening, and it is impossible to say how the de- ceased got between the rails, but it is sur- mised that he stepped out of the way of one jotirney and into the other. The remains wore taken to the Swansea Mortuary.

The Epoe warns the Peace Confer- ence to hasten peace, as the delay is causing restlessness and dissatisfaction. Demonstrations against profiteers are now taking place daily in every large centre, and even developing into conflicts between the police and the demonstrators. The f situation is especially serious in Northern Italy, where the industrial masses are more bitterly affected. At Genoa the demonstrations against profiteers caused to police to be injured more or less severely.

ESCAPE FROM PRISON. I An ingenious escape from gaol is re- ported from Tralee. On Friday morning the prison officials found that a burglar who was under re- mand had removed the small pane of glass in the cell-door and had then managed to unscrew the lock from the outside.

OUR FIRST LOAN. I England's first national loan, at the end of the 17th century, was designed to a large extent as a means of obtaining internal peace.- The amount was ortly a million Und a quarter, hut the interest was 9 per cent., and made the loan ex- tremely popular with all who had money to invest. And by thus inducing the mer- chants and moneyed classes to take out a stake in the country, the Government felt they were raising a solid barrier against Jacobite plotters, since investors would fear lest a restoration should lead to a repudiation of the National Debt. j

"STRANDED BACON," ] FAULT DOES NOT LIE WITH CARTING AGENTS We have received from Messrs. Aeron Thomas and Co., solicitors, Swansea, a letter pointing out that the statement that appeared in our columns on Wednesafciy, that the delay in deliver- ing foodstuffs to grocers was the fault of the cartage agenty, is untrue in sub- stance and in tact. We are sorry to have given publicity to a statement vrhicli did not represent all the facts of :he case, and take this opportunity of correcting it. The fact is that the carting agents, Messrs. Powlegknd and Masou, arc do- ing all that can be expected of them to deal promptly with the traffic. There are, as all v. ho use the Great Western Goods Station know, all too few facili- ties for vehicular traffic, and even if it were possible for the cartage contractors to double the number of their wagons they could do no iiiorb for the accom- modation for vehicles at the station is" already strained to the utmost. I Those who have dealings with Messrs. Powlesland and Mason will know that their service is most prompt and thorough, and any delays in the delivery of goods must be ascribed to some cause or causes over which they have not, and could not be expected to have, control. As to the use of motor vehicles, which has been suggested, we gather that this is quite impracticable for the class of work that has to be done at our stations It is clear that Messrs. Powlesland and l\'f;¡'\¡on ..l"t.o ,,11 t,hp fffnrt-s on their -H, 'H't''VV -1 part, are as much the victims of the cir- cumstances that prevail at the station as any other number of the community.

￼ RACE RIOTS. SMART HANDLING OF DANGEROUS AFFRAY CARDIFF LOOKING QUIETER CARDIFF, Saturday. There is every indication that the racial disturbances at Cardiff are quiet- ing down. Last night passed compara- tively peacefully; and though tc-day the streets are lying patrolled, there fs not the slightest trace in the city of any further trouble. BAIUNS DRAWN. In.the early part of last evening there was every indication that the previous night's noting would be repeated, for huge crowds were in the streets and mailV rumours were current as to what might happen. Necessary precautions were taken by the police, and on one occasion during the night they were commd'ed to draw batons to (!,sper?c s ni ?, hat threatening crowd which lined Custom House-street and the en- trance to Bute-street. The mounted police had been reinforced, whilst the military were also called in. and strike cordons were drawn across the affected areas. TRIUMPH OF ORGANISATION. To say the least, last night's compara- tive peacefulness woj a triumph cf organisation on the part or the authori- ties. It was about 10 o'clock when it seemed that an affray would commence, and the police had to draw batons to drive the crowd back. Suddenly there was a smashing of glass, for, in pite of all th3 pn:mise5 being closely guarded by the police, the threatening crowd burst in upon the j shop of a Malay boarding-house keeper. Some of the occupants took flight, and by means of a rope thrown around the. i chimney they reached the roof. When dusky forms were seen on the skyline, jeers went np from the crowd, and a shower of stones and missiles were j t hrown. r CONSTABLE INJURED. P.C. Payne was struck by one and hi* j knee injured. Bute-street became seething mass of people. Pbtt glass was broken everywhere, and a dangcrou;j movement was nipped, in the bud by an onrush of police. A few aijrests were made ,and there were several esses of minor injuries; these were taken to the King Edward VII. Hospital. It is understood that the Government is considering the situation, and tLe Home Secretary is being kept well in- formed of the developments.

CAUOHT BY TIDE?' CAUGHT BY TIDE ? a REMARKABLE THEORY AT A LLANELLY INQUEST J After having been missing for seven i days, the body of Richard Robert Ben- J, nett, junr., cf 62. High-&treet, Llanelly, I wa,s recovered on the Llanelly beach on | Friday, and an inquest was conducted by | Mr. W. W. Brodie on Saturday. f Evidence of identification was given by i the father, who t-did deceased was i6 years i of age, and was employed as a riser at the j tinplate works., Witness last saw him alive on the nigiit of June 6th when he J was about to leave for his work. Deceased ? returned home on the following morning I at 6.10 a.m., and then went for a walk on f the beach. He did not return. For two 1 and a half years he had keen suffering 1 from brain pressure, but he was of a jolly disposition, and had not been despondent at all. P.S. Rees (Docks), spoke of finding the body about ;(10 yards from where de- ceased's coat was found in the fishing nets on June (jth. Dr. A. Dick said he had attended de- ceased for two or three years. The young man was suhering from a tumour on tho brain, which migiit cause him to swerve or stumble. Since death he had examined the body, and judging by its "•decomposi- non, thought deceased was drowned on June 6th. All the marks were post mor- tem, and probably caused by fish. The Coroner: Is it possible for hici to have been walking near the water and by stumbiii^ to have fallen in? Witness: I think it is more likely that he was sitting in the sun and that owing to the abnormal brain pressure, caused by the tumour, added to the heat of the day, he collapsed, and that he was unable to save 1irnsclf from the incoming tide. The Coronor: Then you think the heat would account for his coal being off? Witness: Yes. A verdict of accidental drowning was re- turned.
