pose of the protests made by , the
southern senators and in addition es
tablished the principle that any mattet
in the nature of a treaty with a for
eign government must be consumma
ted by the president "with the consent
of the senate." In this form the com
mittee reported the treaties in the sen
I'rrKlilent WnN CrlliclMrd.
The president was criticised sharplv
becMuse of his letter declaring it to be
a step backward to ratify the treaties
in the form proposed by the senate
committee on foreign relations. X
defense of the president's position wat
taken until the second executive ses
sion. when Senators Dolliver, Fair
banks, Piatt of Connecticut and Hop
kins argued against the need of haste
Some Hpo-(l Trent iv-M.
It was argued by these senators thai
an amendment ought to be directed
if amendments were necessary at. all
to a better definition of the class o!
questions to be left to arbitration
rather than by an amendment which
put the government of the United
States in the attitude of agreeing wit!
foreign nations in advance that in cer
tain cases it would make treaties of
National I'cni-e I'ollcy.
It was said that the obligation to de
that was already upon us by reason ol
The Hague convention and the oft re
peated statement, that it is the national
policy to arbitrate. Ratification of these
treaties, it was ''argued, offered to thh
government the best- chance it was
likely to have in this generation to do
its share toward the abolition of the
Larbarisms of war.
After the speeches a motion to ad
jotim was made, but was defeated. A
motion was then made to adopt thf
commit t ee"s arr en ! merit .
A vote was taken on the treaty with
Fiance, as te other treaties are on
Identical lines. A roll call was again
demanded and the amendment was
adopted a" to 0.

IS 25 BELOW ZERO

JBSERVER SHERIER'S RECORD
Much Suffering Over the City
roads Have Serious
Uut once before in a quarter of a cen
ury diil the temperature go to the
xtreine that it did this morning in
Jock Island. At 7:"' the official indi
cator at the government station show-;-d
23 below zero. Observer J. M.
Shcrier's records go back years. In
ernsing them today he found tint
in that period there was just one day
hat it got colder than it did today.
fhat was on Jan. 5, 1SS4, when the
thermometer registered 27 below.
Yesterday morning at 7 o'clock the
bulb was exactly at the zero mark.
,-rom that hour it declined steadily,
and at 7 o'clock last evening it was
below. An hour later it was 11, at
' it was IS. and the hourly readings
from that period on till 7 o'clock this
morning were as follows: 15 1C, IS.
19. 20, 21, 23, 23. 24, 21. Hetween 7
and 8 o'clock there was a fall of one
degree. After 8 o'clock there was a
rising temperature, which, we are in
formed by the observer, will continue
through the night.
Many Have 1'ro-r.rn.
Humanity suffered more than any,
day during the winter. Many had
their ear-i and noses frozen during the
morning, as one did not realize the in
tensity of the atmosphere owing to
the absence of high wind, until he was
bitten. Railroad trains and street cars
moved with difficulty, and none was
able to make the schedules. The Bur
lington passenger. No. 17. from the
south, due here last evening, did not
arrive until li o'clock this morning,
having been stalled in the snow all
night at KosevUle, i!l. Train No. 40,
from the south this morning, followed
No. 47 into the local station, and the
latter was abandoned here. No. 47 tak
ing its passmgers.
All trains from the west on the Rock
Island were from two to seven hours
late in arriving, but those on the Illi
nois division managed to keep pretty
close to schedule. Trains on the Mer
cer county and l'eoria branches had
a serious time also, as did those on the
M il waukee.
Rock Island arsenal shops were idle
today because tiiey could not be healed
to a comfortable temperature.
llio From thr South.
That the winter has been severe in
the north is a fact well realized in
this vicinity, but that the southern
states have suffered from the cold
more than in many years is not. so gen
erally known. At. Memphis, Tenn.,
old settlers are authority for the state
ment that never before as long as can
be remembered there has been floating
ice in the Mississippi at that point, yet
great quantities are seen there thii
winter. At St. Iiouis the river is froz
tn solid, and the ice bridge is used
continually by pedestrians. At Mem
phis, and in cities on the same line,
there has often been a low enough
temperature to cause frosts, and t"
freeze standing wafer, bat none of th
old settlers have ever seen floating ice
in the Mississippi.
