Washington doesn't know the

as to the departments an" bu

The orgy of extravagance which
Senator Wadsworth says must cease

of tho Government departments and
bureaus to continue the conduct of

leader of tho flock is the War Der

Want to Have the Party Policy

By David Lawrence.
, (Special Correspondent of The
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24 Copy
right, 1920. Stories of a serious
revolt among the Democrats In the
Senato against the leadership of
President Wilson on the peace treaty
aro exaggerated. Eight or nine
Democratic' Senators aro ready to
surrender to Senator Lodge and the
Republican reservationlsts on Arti
cle Ten, but that would not be
enough to bring about a ratification
of the peace treaty.
Tho movement is not organized
and has not the sanction of either
Senator Hitchcock or Senator Un
derwood, rivals for the minority
leadership In the Senate. Nor is It
likely to do anything more at pres
ent except unify the Democrats, for
It has acted like a danger signal.
Friends of the President In the
Senate men llko Senators Simmons
and Underwood have seen the pos
sibility of a break In Democratic
ranks when a vote on various reser
vations Is taken; and they therefore
want a caucus t0 express the view
point of the party.
For instance, it would bo cmbar
KLssintr indeed for the Domocrats If
any constderaiblo of their number
voted with tho Republicans, 'because
if the treaty failed of -passage and
tho Issuo wcro carried into tho cam
paign, tho blamo could hardly bo put

ing. Tho viewpoint of tho Democrats
who want to see tho causes called,
and party notion taken, seoms to be
