It is useful because the First Nations were supposed to get their two conditions which were fair for both the sides (First Nation and British). The two conditions to give up their land was that landownership rights of the First Nations must be respected. The second was that if a First nation did choose to give up land, it should receive a fair payment for it. Clearly, these two things did not happen and therefor it was not a useful beginning because the British didn't respect those conditions. After they took the land, the First Nations were deceived. So instead of everything going smoothly between the First Nation and British, they ended up British didn't get a long so well.

Why did Henry Cabot lodge have problems with the treat of Versailles?

President Wilson, a Democrat, was engaged in a power struggle with a Republican controlled Senate. The conflict centered around a balance of power issue -- Wilson had negotiated the treaty without the customary presence of senators, and he neglected to discuss and negotiate the terms of the treaty with the Senate Foreign Relations committee before making it public. By cutting the senators out of the treaty making process, Wilson was attempting to do an end run around the Senate's authority over treaties and this angered many senators. The Republicans also had major substantive and ideological issues with the proposed treaty. Some of these issues arose out the bitter, personal rivalry between the head of the Foreign Relations Committee, Henry Cabot Lodge and Wilson. These men had opposing views of international relations with Lodge being a realist and Wilson an idealist. Lodge and other Republican Senators believed the treaty should call for the unconditional surrender of Germany and it did not, they felt that many provisions as written were unenforceable, and they opposed the treaty provisions which authorized US participation in Wilson's pet project, the League of Nations. In particular, Lodge felt participation in the League would compromise US sovereignty by requiring the US to enter into international conflicts when it was not in the national interest of the US to do so. Lodge's committee sent the treaty to the floor of the Senate for a vote with 14 amendments, but recommended against its passage. On November 19, 1919, for the first time in US history, the Senate rejected a peace treaty.
