In addition there waa a telegram

Hail to Pat I'll for Deficit.
The first letter, mailed to Washington
by Hamilton September 13. 1913, said
that the county committee's budget had
been exceeded In the campaign of the
year before apd that Hamilton "had to
put up for the deficit." It continued, in

by members who had lost son3 or rela

The letter said that Representative

lally concerned during the parliamentary
wrestle to ma'ifl" perfectly sure that
cloture would net come back with the
treaty. The old cloture, rule limited
each Senator to an hour's participation
In debate. Some Senators' had used up
tho last qf their golden minutes before
ma treaty was disposed ot on NQvenv
bar 19. Most of those, who have par
tlclpatid actively in the discussion were
near the end of their strings, so If the
old cloture rule had; come back there
would have been 'no chance for a
lengthy debate. The Sennte would have
been compelled to wtart again on a
series of votes without discussion.
Tho danger of this happening was al
ways in the minds of tho opposition,
anq tney pressed questions at every op
portunlty .to Insure, that the record
anouid make perfectly plain that cloturu
was dead. Not only was this agreed to,
but lt was also made very apparent
that the 8enate will have no more of
cloture during the treaty consideration.
"The treaty la back and open towmenrt
ment," said Senator Borah (Idaho)
grimly, ''There never will be another
application1 of cloture .to It. Neither aide
I will stand for that experience again."
The Republican mild rcucrvatlonlets
mt with Senator Lodge to consider their
oourse. Present were Senator Hao
(Me.), Kellogg (Minn.), Mnroot (Vs.),
McNary (Ore.), Keyes (N. H,)( Nelaon
(Minn.) and Colt (R. I.). There was
discussion of the various draft modifica
tions of tho Article X. reservation. Sen-
mui uuusu aytccu uiui lit) wuuiu aec
all got a chance for presentation and
consideration along wth the modifica
tion of he preamble. Mr. Lodge Is not
bound (0 support them, but does assure
they will have their chance, and In con
sideration of that tho mild group will
leave Senator l.pdge to act as their
leader in handling tho matter.
Chances Are Improving.
It was commented widely tp-dny that
neither treaty ncr league ever has oc
cupied so weak a place In Senatorial esti
mates as to-day, and, on the other hand,
despite that fact It also was conjectured
freely that tho chance Of ratification Is
Improving. This is attributed partly to
the alarm of politicians whp do not
want the Issue in the campaign, and
partly to the nervous feeling about the
world's financial and economic position.
There is a vagte Impression that ratifi
cation would ease the pressure and have
a good psychological effect abroad which
would be reflected here.
Senator Lodge's flrst motion to-day
waa to proceed to executive business. t
was accepted without debate. "Arc we

Foreign Relations CommlUe" Vce
Prefldent Marshall replied, "or unless
by unapimus consent the cloture rule
be modified the chair will hold that the
treaty comes back under the. cloture
adopted by the Senate."
Senator Lodge Ven moved to suspend
the rules This required a two-thirds
vote. The roll call produced a vote of
65 yeas to 9 pays. Senators voting
"No" were Borah (Idahp), Brandegee
(Conn.), France (Md.), Gronna (N. D.),
Knox (Pa.), McCormick (III.), Norrls
(Neb.), Polndexter (Wash.), Sherman

The' Lodge motion then waa agreed to.
"i now move to recomm It to tho For

Lodge, "the treaty tosether with the

the resolution ot ratification with In
structlona to report the treaty back Im
mediately together with the said reser
vatlona nnd the ratifying resolution "
"I ahould like to uk the Senator from
Massachusetts," said Senator Hitch
cock, "whether he would bo willing to

read: 'I move to recommit to tho Com
mittee on Foreign Relations the treaty

lution of ratification with Instructions to
report the treaty back Immediately with
out recommendations.' That will leavo
tne wnoie matter in the senalo where
it can be considered and will leave it
practically where it was.
"My purpose and my solo purpose In
what I am endeavoring to do Is to bring
iwck tne treaty before tho senate in the
quickest way possible," said Senator
Lodge, "Whatever we are to do In the
Senate will be done, f at all, by modi

Reservations Wero Adapted.
"The expression -reservations adopted
by the Senate" strikes me as hardly cor
rect, because the reservations wero
adopted In committee of the whole," ex-
piaineu senator Hitchcock.
They were subsequently ndooted in
the Senate oycry one of them."
"The Senate rejected the resolution In

Hitchcock said, "and It puts the matter

''What was defeated was the resolu

'Thfcre is no doubt the reservations were
adopted. I think the description la ac
curate." Senator Hitchcock then moved to
strike out the words "reservations adopt

"I think it a mistake to adopt that
course and hope It will not be done,"
Senator Lodge urged.
"I agree with the Senator from Ne

terjected, "that )f the Senator from Mas

There followed a long debate as to the
advisability of dispensing with the Lodge
motion to recommit to Foreign Rela

rent to dissolve the cloture. Senators
on both aides participating at this punc
ture left no doubt as to the general
desire to dispense with cloture and to
make very sure that the procedure
adopted should bring the treaty back

Of which England took 1,475,900 bales

Washington, Feb. 9. Early ratifica
tion of fh peace treaty with reserva
tions acceptable to the Republicans and
pehiocrata In the Senate was urged In
a memorial presented to Prldent Wll
ten to-day through Secretary Tumulty
by a commlltee rDrientln the League
to Enforce Peace and other organiza
tions with a membership of 50,000,000,
It-was said. Prealdept Lowall of Har
vard University, Oscar 8. Straus and
Clarence J. Owens composed tho commit
tee. The memorial called attention to the
necessity for peace and demanded that
a middle ground b found for a com
promise which would Insure Immediate
ratification by the Senate.
Declaring that all the reservations now
under consideration were the result of
a long series of compromises', the me
morial assorted that both the original
position of the Ilepubllcans that the
treaty thould be adopted only with
amendments, and that of tho President
that It sluuld be adopted without reser
vations, now have been abandoned.
Citing that the only two differences
remaining to prevent an agreement are
those on Artlcla X. and on tha Monroe
Poctrlne, the memorial ndds that "In re
gard to the latter there has not been any
doubt that the doctrine should bo pre
served, and the difference now Is con
fined to ihe method of expressing that
opinion without offence to friendly na
tions both " Europe and America,"
'As regards Article X.," the me
morial continues, "the difference between
the reservation presented by Senator
Lodge and that submitted to tho Presi
dent by Senator Hitchcock seems to
consist In tha fact that the former de
clares that wo assume no obligations
under the article without the approval
of Congress In each specific case and
the latter that we assume no obligation
to take action under the article without
the 'approval of congress In each spe
cific case. .
"The real difference la hard foal us
to understand and wo believe that It will
be wholly Incomprehensible to the Am
erican people. In any event the dif
ference s Insignificant In comparison
to the importance of the treaty and
covenant itself. Wi believe that It Is
not only for the Interests of the coun
try, but for those of the President, the
Senate and each of the great political
parties, to ratify the treaty without
further delay,"

Believing that In prosperous times tho wisest policy

a large increase would have been justified. We
knew that by refraining from profiteering and by

firmly tstablished than ever in the esteem, pf the
American public.
Wc now advise our friends that im do no) intend la
raise prices 'during the next six mcrtlu. although
conditions would warrant making our prices double
what they were before the war. By increasing our
production and proceeding on the principle of small
profits and large sales, it has been necessary to
increase our prices only j j jincc the war began.
We want more than ever to have the name ED.
PINAUD stand for fair dealing and to cultivate a

Wc feci that the fine old word "trustworthy" justly
applies to the ED. PINAUD preparations, You
can rely thoroughly upon their merit, They are
guaranteed to contain no wood alcohol or other
injurious ingredients, and have been approved in
