Approval of Arbitration Conven?
tions Predicted.
PRESIDENT HELPED THEM
Effects of His Campaign of Edu?
cation and of Popular Senti?
ment Felt in Senate.
[From The Tribune Bureau. 1
W ??.?hington. Jan. 3.?The offset of the
rresldent's campaign of education In sup?
port of the general arbitration treaties with
Oreat Britain and France was shown In
M many different ways in the Senate to?
day that the prediction was freely made
that they will be ratlfi- d without amend?
ment when they come up for final action
>?v eral weeks hence.
A marked changt- of attitude appeared
en Hie Dcmoc-iatic side, which wan dl.
'? to stand solidly against the ratitlca
tion of the agreements when they were re?
ported hy the Committee on Foreign Re?
lations. In this opposition Senator Kacon,
who d?-<'larod that he would never S] prove
an agre*ment which submitted the ques?
tion of Southern bonds feo arbitration, took
the lead Thla misconception, together with
many others regarding the scope i?f ?h<*
treaties. lias been cleared away by the
President In his speeches in various parts
of the country, in the mean time Sena?
tors have been made to feel the strength
of the popular fcntlment In favor of rati?
fication, and many who were at lir.-t in
? lined to oppose them have changed their
mind.*-.
Senator Rayner. one of the Democratic
members of the Foreign Relations Com?
mittee, announced to-day that he would
file a minority report favoring the rati?
fication of the treaties without amend?
'nent. Senator Hitchcock, nnother Demo?
cratic member, gave notice that he would
address the Senate on the treaties at the
first opportunity. It is understood that the
purpose of his speech Is not i/o much to
oppose ratification as to justify his course
In signing the majority report of the com
mlttee recommending that they be amende?!.
As evidence of popular Interest In the
agreement.?-. Senator Cullom presented a
large number of petitions from societies
and organisations of various kinds favor?
ing their ratification without delay. "Three.
fourths of the states of the Union," said
Senator Cullom, 'are represented by these
petitions."
Senator Gallinger also presented a num?
ber of petitions, among which was one
signed by a number of personal acquaint?
ances. "In presenting this," he said, "1
ventura to express the hope that the arbi?
tration treaties will soon be taken up by
the Senate."
Although It i.i not improbable that suffi?
cient strength could be mustered by the
mpporters of the treaties to ratify them at
the present time, they will not be taken
up for final action for at least a fortnight,
according to the present plan. The advo
?ate* of arbitration in the Senate desire
linn* time for ?he leaven of popular senti?
ment to work and to give recalcitrant Sen?
ators time to consider the huestlon care?
fully before voting. The (objections tnat
were brought against the trestles are grad?
ually being cleared away, and the ques?
tion of Senate prerogative looms less large
Since the treaties were sent to the Senate
it has hr-rom- apparent that the opposi?
tion to them in the Committee on Foreign
Relations is not so great as it was. Se?a?
lera Burton. Ruot and ?'ullom signed the
Tiinorltv report favoring the ratification of
th?- Ireatie?. Since the report was stibmlt
?ed Senators Sutherland, McCumber and
Ravner have declared themselves as favor?
ing the latter course, and their example has
been followed by a number of other Sena?
tors not on the committee.

PENNSYLVANIA
RAILROAD
n
Off for Cleveland!
Cleveland is .579 miles
from New York, nut yon
can reach the Lake City
in 14 hours by using the
train leaving Pennsylvania
Station at 6.82 P. M. The
train arrives in Cleveland
at 730 A. IfcT., in time for
breakfast before business.
If you are destined to the
residential section, leave
the train at the Euclid
Avenue Station, if other?
wise, at the Union Station
on the lake front. The
train is limited and affords
excellent service. There
is, of course, a well-ap?
pointed dining ear serving
dinner. A club car sug?
gests smoke and refresh?
ment and companionship.
As a part of its equipment
there is also a barber, who
tidies up men's clothes, and
a hath.
The observation and li?
brary car suggests its own
purpose. It is open to all
passengers and is a social
exchange, a reading room
and an outlook on the
passing scenery. A .la?
dies1 maid and a manicur?
ist HTve the passengers.
Drawing-rooms or state?
rooms muy be chosen by
those who wish more seclu?
sion than thcv lierth af?
fords.
This train is one of the
famous trains of the land,
and it is a great favor?
ite with travelers between
Cleveland and New York.
The excel lenee of its
equipment and the timeli?
ness of its schedule make
it so.
The time table shows
five other good trains to
Cleveland leaving at con?
venient hours!

Wai-hlngtuu. January I.
PUYAN L??<)M_ LARGE.- -With 1*8
convening ??f Congress after the holiday
recess Usa ?Ment to which the shadow K
William Jennings Bryan overcasts the
Democratic horizon and the Influence he
still exerts ..ver his party i?rc more thin
ever apparent. For instance, it is du<- sole?
ly to the taunts which wMr. Bryan has
thrown Bl Repr.-sentatlveVndcrwood that
the majority In the House has decided to
report 8 '.HI r. vising the steel schedule 1"
fore taking Up the wool schedule, fl.-spite
th. fad that the Democratic leaders be?
lieve that their ?course in this respect is
illogical and that they are sacrificing much
political advantage by doing so. The view
of the Pomona Un leads/s is that they
?c.ubl gain most ?redit with the voters by
promptly passing B wool bill substantially
the s.ime ns that they passed at the last
session, and Which they believe would so
nearly confern to the report of the Tariff
Boar?! that the President could not refass
to appm\e it. But even although they are
p.-rsuiKled of the correctness of their rea?
soning in ?his respect. Mr. Underwood has
not the courage longer to face the criticism
of th? Peerless Leader, and In order to
prove that the chairman of the Ways and
Mesa- Committee is not influenced by the
steel Industry at Birmingham a steel hill
will ba first reported. It Is felt that It is
better to avoid tita continue?i ritlcism ot
Mr. Bryan than to make additional votes
among the people. Speaking privately, in?
fluential Democrats do not deny thai M
WOUM have been the occasion of the utmost
relief t.. then If the ship on which Mr.
Bryan was recently travelling, and which
suffered S serious ??-cldent. had gone to the
bottom of the sea with nil OB board. The
possibility of Mr. Bryan's being the ?Presl*
denial nominee of his party Is being dle*
nissed more seriously than ever, and there
arc many who fear that when the inevitable
m?l?e In the Democratic National Conven?
tion ends the Peerless Leader will be found
on<e more to have captured the party col?
ors.
TDK BTEBL DlfJi BegnrtllesB ?f the
fact that the Tariff Board has ma?le no in?
vest prat ion of the steel industry, and of
the further fact that the members of the
Ways and Means ConunlttOB have bad no
time to ?lo so, that committee expects lo
bring into the House nithin a few days a
steel bill which will be label*?- "Demo
. i-, ti./" although M arlU actaally bs ??"
adaptation o: the Cummins amendment
which was added to the cotton bill of the
last sefslon. Iron ore, according to pres?
ent plans. Will be put on the fr?-e list, as
will barbed wire, hoop iron and, indeed,
most of the forms of iron and steel which
?were mads free by the "Farmer.?' Free
| List" of last summer. Reductions of from
SO to 45 per cent on manufactured steel are
contemplated, and tin plate will probably
be cut nearly M per cent. It Is believed
?that a sufficient number of Insurgents ?an
be found In the Senate to pass this bill.
and that thus It will be possible to send to
lbs Presi.lcnt another half-baked tariff
measure, which, to be consist? nt. he must
veto, and that thus some measure of polit?
ical gain will be made by the Democrats.
But that the chief reason which actuates
the Democrats In bringing in a steel bill
at this time is fear of Mr. F.ryan is not
denied by the Democratic leaders.

of the dissecting knife will keep Repre?
sentative Oscar w. Fnclerwood away from
the Jackson Day dinner, at which William
Jennings Brjan will be the lion of the n<
caslon. Whether It Is fear of appendicitis
or Bryanilla which will bad Mr. Under?
wood to lemain away is not quite ?lar.
Mr I'nriet wood admlis that be has an over?
powering fear of tho operating tablet and
it is known that he was recently threatened
with appendicitis. It Is also known, how?
ever, that Mr. Bryan is quite capable of
converting the festive board Into an oper?
ating table, and that hi? oratorical scalpel
is likely to be quite jo^-baip. uitcl pet baps

"And there goes Rosen, who witnesse?l

Mr. Steuer appeared as counsel for David

Go On Sale This Morning
That is the story in a nutshell to all men who
have shared in the royalties of this annual over?
coat offering. But, for the benefit of those who
have not done so, a further word?
These overcoats are made from high
quality vicuna cheviots and best of guar?
anteed silk ?wings?hand-sewed where
that counts for anything.
?Hack, Oxford gray and Cambridge gray,
with silk velvet collars. For dress or
conservative street wear. Sizes include
stout men and tall.
The majority of them could not have been pur?
chased regularly at wholesale for the price we ask
at retail.
Query : How docs this come about?
First, quantity counts mightily. The pres?
ent offering approximates half of the coats
resulting from a tremendous purchase of fabrics.
We went to a mill that produces the highest

with a manufacturer of high-grade overcoats,
whose one stipulation was, "I must take my time
to this, filling in the slack days."
We couldn't have been better pleased. W?

emissary of this store quality-equipped to go out
into the glare of critical inspection and speak for
the worthiness of Wanamaker products. We
could not ask better commissioners !
Silk linings are the best we could find. Inter
linings and buttons our own selection. Indeed,
we have stood over these coats from start to

to make a clean sweep of piece goods then on
hand.
This mill has a national reputation not only for
the high quality of raw material used in its
products; it stands alone in the matter of
timsh, employing a method that makes
its vicuna cheviots virtually dust-proof.
Our'offer being accepted (the mill preferring
one large deal to fifty small ones), we found
ourselves in possession?of an exceptional quantity
of fabrics the like of which it has seldom been
our privilege to acquire for less than usual prices.
