The total production of wine for
1904 in France is now estimated at
1,743,959,650 gallons. This surprising

any since 1875, with the single excep

The large celluloid combs, which la

in their hair, will, if accidentally
brought into contact with a naked

wondered at, seeing that one of the
Ingredients of celluloid is gun cotton,
while another is camphor, than which
is no more inflammable substance
known to chemists.
A very useful educational purpose is
served by the practice of lending to
schools of art in different English

an interesting loan collection of ob

Municipal School of Art until the close
of the current seas'on in June, 190S.
A nervy Frenchwoman is startling

A curve at the bottom of the track
causes the machine to shoot up into

the daring rider shoots into a re

Washington, Feb. 13.—The senate in
executive session on Saturday ratified
the arbitration treaties between the
United States and eight European gov
ernments. It required two sessions to
reach an agreement. At the first session
consideration was given to a communi
cation from the president to Senator
Cullom, chairman of the foreign affairs
committee, in the lorm of a protest
against any amendment being adopted.
At the second session the treaties were
amended and ratified, with only nine
vctes against the amendment made by
the senate committee on foreign rela
The President's Letter.
When the executive session began
Senator Cullom prese'nted and had read
the letter from the president to himself.
In which the president had- taken excep
tion to the senate's amendment substi
tuting the word "treaty" for the word
"agreement." In the president's opin
ion it was not a step forw9rd, but a step
backward. If the word "treaty," lie
says, is substituted the treaties would
amount to a specific announcement
agaiDSt the whole principle of a gen
eral arbitration treaty. The president
also says that if, in the judgment of the
president, an amendment nullifies a pro
posed treaty it seems to him that it is
no less clearly his duty to refrain from
endeavoring to secure a ratification of
the amended treaty.
When the reading had been concluded
Senator Morgan took the floor and mak
ing the president's letter tlie text of his
remarks, proceeded with a sharp triti
cL-m ol executive interference with the
senate in performing its part in the mak
ing of treaties. Senators Spooner. For
aker, Lodge and others took the position
that the senate must stand firm in up
holding its prerogatives, and must in
sist that the word "treaty" be substitut
ed for the word "agreement" in all of ths.
treaties. Senators Piatt (Conn.) and
Fairbanks upheld the position of the
president. A motion was then made to
adopt the committee's amendment. The
vote was taken on the treaty between
the United States and France, as the
other treaties are on identical lines. A
roll call was demanded and the amend
ment was adopted by a vote of 50 to 9.
Those who voted to sustain the presi
dent's position were Senators Dolliver.

was adopted it was Agreed to so far as

Washington, Feb. 10.—President
Roosevelt was urged Thursday to take
some action looking to the termination
of the Russo-Japanese war. The re
quest was made by the inter-Parlia
mentary union through the president of
the organization, Representative Bar
tholdt, of Missouri. Dr. Bartholdt ex
plained to the president that the con
sensus of opinion among the members
of the union and among European parlla
mentarians with whom he is in corre
spondence was that the president of the
United States was the one man, with the
possible exception of the emperor of
Germany, who indicated no disposition
to try to bring the war to an end, who
might be listened to on the subject with
favor by Russia.
Not Likely to Act.
The president gave Dr. Bartholdt no
definite assurances beyond promising
to consider tbe matter with Secretary
Hay. It is known to be quite unlikely
that this government will take any
action looking to mediation until some
assurances have been received from
both parties to the pending conflict
that such action would not be unwel
come. The president told Dr. Bar
tholdt that the date of the proposed
I second conference of The Hague, would
depend entirely upon the termination
of hostilities between Russia and

St. Petersburg, Feb. 10—The grand
ducal party, it is stated on good authori

peace at the best terms obtainable. This
decision is tbe result of a meeting at
which a vote was taken.
The general talk for peace is accompa
nied by a discussion of the terms Russia
would be willing to accept. First of all,
it is considered impossible to meet any
demand for a cash indemnity. It is con
ceded, however, that Russia must retire
from the whole Liaotung peninsula and
consent to Japan's occupation of Port
Arthur. Manchuria, of course, would be
retui£3d to China.
