the nomination of 11 .Secretary of the
Treasury to succeed Carter Glass, who
resigned' to accept the seat In the

Tho appointment Is to be a political
cue to help tho Democratic political

Homer S. Cummlngs, chairman of the
Democratic National Cemmlttee, Attorney-General
Palmer, and other strong
men of the Democratic organization.
-While not nationally known In a po
litical way, Mr. Woollen , Is one of the
most prominent lawyers, bankers and
economists of the Middle West.
Political considerations are known to
have played the most prominent part In
the selection of Mr. Glass's successor.
It was for thjs reason, it Is understood,
that Assistant Secretary Lefllngwcll's
name was dropped from consideration
somo time ago, he having once been a
Republican. The same reasons also' com
pelled the Southern Democrats to re
linquish this place In the Cabinet, it
having been decided some time ago that
the place, whoever should be named,
must go to a Northerner In one of the
doubtful States.

State must establish facilities for giving

Republicans Confident Treaty
Can Bo Ratified Only With
Present Reservations.
Special Despatch to Tux SM.
Washington, Jan. 26. Tho crisis ln
the negotiations looking first to com
promise on reservations and then to
ratification of the German peaco treaty
ontercd a now phase to-day.
At the end of last week Republican
lrreconcilablcs notified Senator Lodgo
(Maas.), the Ropubllcan leader, that If
there should be any concessions in the
reservations dealing with the Monroo
Doctrlno and Article X, tho treaty
would bo rejected. They Informed him
that thirty-eight Senators were deter
mined on this attitude and that nego
tiations looking further to compromis
ing these reservations would be useless
because of their decision.
When the bipartisan conference was
resumed this morning at the office of
Senator Lodge he Immediately an
nounced to the Democratic conferees
that this was tho situation. It would
be Impossible to permit any conces
sions as to theso two reservations, and
It further npfntlntlonn werp to bn con

fact plainly understood.
Conference Broken Up.
That fact being altogether unaccept
able to the Democratic conferees they
promptly withdrew, headed by Senator
Hitchcock (Neb.). The announcement
by Senator Lodge greatly and visibly
perturbed the Democrats, who dis
played much agitation. Down to tha
Inauguration vt the revolt last Week
against the compromise proceedings
the Democrats had been hopeful of ac
complishment and believed they had
mado Important progress. That ac
complishment seemed suddenly swept

statements. That by Senator Hitchcock

progress had been made toward agree

agreement "was apparently almost con
summated on Article X., when adjourn
ment suddenly came."
As u matter of fact, It was precisely
becauso u compromise agreement was
rumored to be sti near that the revolt

Senators who were willing
to be parties to no ceir.nromlse. who
would not permit the subtraction of

This is what Senator Hitchcock said
a few minutes after the conferenen hml
broken up:
When the conference assembled
Senator Lodgo advised the Senators
present that he had been called Into
a meeting by certain Republican
Senators and for that reason had not
been able to attend tho last confer
ence Friday. He regretted to say
that he found It impossible to re
sume tho conference for a compro
mise except on the understanding
that no change shall b mado In the
reservation on Article X. or on the
Monroo Doctrine. The Democratic
members retired for a private confer
ence nnd will make their reply to
Senator Lodge Tuesday morning at a
meeting at 10:30.
