Washington, Feb. 11. President
Roosevelt has addressed a letter to
Senator Culiom, chairman of the com
mittee on foreign relation, stating the
action of that committee in amending
the- arbitration treaties by substituing
for the word '"agreement" the word
"treaty" is, in his opinion, a step back

the judgment of the president, the

clearly his duty to refrain from en

the am nded treaty.

Ciillom lead the letter aloud during
the executive session of the senate to
day. It was received with a great deal
of surprise, and several senators as
serted the letter confirmed what they
had claimed, namely, that the words
"treaty" and "agreement" were the es
ItiHlMt on 1'iixltiun.
They insisted if the word "agree
ment" instead of "treaty" was used it
would give the president full power to
negotiate agreements without submit

No action was taken on the arbitra

INGA HANSON IS
HELD TO BE GUILTY
Faces Prison Term as Result of Alleg
ed Fraud Remarkable Chi
Chicago. Feb. 11. Inga Hanson is
guilty. Such was the verdict yester
day afternoon of the jury which sat
in judgment in her perjury trial, and
by the finding she is branded as one
of tin? most remarkable criminals of
any land or any time. Hardly had the
verdict been returned and a motion for
a new trial made when the attorneys
for the convicted woman exploited
what may become a new sensation. It
was charged that at least one member
of the jury was biased and that others
would be made objects of scrutiny. An
empty quart bottle which had contain
ed whisky was found in the jury-room,
and this fact alone i.-i contended by
the defense to be sufficient to insure
a new trial. The verdict was returned
after the jury had been out three
hours. The penalty for perjury is from
one to 11 years' imprisonment.
The charge on which Miss Hanson
was convicted was giving false testi
mony in connection with her personal
injury suit for $".o,mm damages from
the Chicago City Railway company.
Her Injuries, it was maintained by the
prosecution, were feigned with a cun
ning that was deceptive even fo"physi
cians. believed that the pending conventions
will be ratified at an early date.

Chicago. Feb. 11. James Ozello,
wine merchant and proprietor of the
Northwestern hotel, 30 Wells street,
was swindled out of $3,020 em a fake
foe)t race in Clinton, 111. He was sad,
but held his peace. Finally he retalia
ted by inducing the "promoters" ti
visit Chicago em the pretext that he
was ready to make another wager.
They were arrested in the saloon of
Flynn & Lavery, in Dearborn, mar
Van Buren street, last night, and are
held at the Harrison street statiem.
The "fixed" foot race is an obi game'
anel it needed considerable persuasion
on the part of the "runners" to get
Ozello to "bite." A "millionaire;" was
suppesed to bet on one ef the men who
was to throw the race against the cap-
italist. Ozello's protege fell and the
wine merchant lost.

Showing racing trunks in a satchel,
one ef the' men said:
"My partner here is the protege of

Ozello did not take kindly to the

times they returned and talked to him
and finally he consented to be refe ree.
An apiM'intrnent was made in Spring

Before leaving Chicago the wine mer

little; "easy money."
Arriving at the capital with $3,000
to wager on t he race, Ozello was taken
to the Loland hotel, where the backers
of the racers were installed. Ozello
was introduced to the party.
"This is Gov. Deneen." said one of
the; men. introducing the Chicagoan to
one of the party.
"Glad to know you," said the alleged
