ng of Democratic and mild reserve
:ion senators and agres to a com
promise which will be a departure
from the original Lodge reserva
:ions. cannot possibly be carried
>ut. according to reliable Informa
ion given to The Washington Her
ild yesterday.
The reason why the "bitter end
?rg" canifot make good" their ultl
natum, delivered to Senator lx>dge
?t a conference in Senator Hiram
lohnson's office on Friday, which
*a? a threat to destroy the treaty
entirely if the Bay State leader
compromises further than the extent
previously termed by him "the Irre
iucible minimum."* is because the
Johnson - Borah group will be un
ible to command the thirty-eight
k'otes which it was reported yester
lay they would use as a weapon to
prevent the 'Treaty's ratification.
Exart Faet? Revealed.
The source of* The Herald's infor
mation is one of unquestionable au
thority and it may be said that the
exact facts as to what transpired In
Senator Johnson's office on Friday
were told in The Herald by one who
has taken part in all the recent bi
partisan conferences and who has
been actively engaged In the effort to
promote treaty ratification.
When the group of irreconcilable
Senators told Senator Lodge that ir
he yielded on Article Ten or de
parted from his original program,
thirty-eight Senators would vpte to
.lestroy the treaty. Senator Lodge
? ailed upon the Senators for a show
I down.
"Name the thirty-eight Senator*.'
he is said to have replied.
l.odae Pr*ve? UaMvafcle.
To Senator Lodge's request for
names of the thirty-eight Senators
who would "defeat the treaty if you
ion't watch out." the insurgent Sen
ators replied that of course they were
iependlng upon his (Lodge's* support
to carry through such a program.
Senator Lodge stated at the time.
*nd told several other Senators pri
vately after the conference, he would
not under any circumstances Join the
?biter ender" group in an attempt to
iefeat the treaty in case the entire
original T?dge program could not be
carried out.
This means that Senators Capper,
rurtis. Paige. Dillingham. McLean.
Townsend. Sutherland. Penrose and
Klkins doubtless would run true to
form and stand by Senator Lodge in
his refusal to defeat the treaty.
These Senators are counted upon by
Senator I?dge to support any pro
zram with regard to the treaty ad
vocated by him. I
This would leave only twenty-nine
Senators who stand united in their
determination to defeat the treaty
rather than see a compromise, and.
counting Senator I^odge's vote, 6nly
twenty-eight. This number does not
allow for from five to ten Senators
who In the finality probably would
follow Senator Lodge's leadership.
Want More Consultation.
There are six Republican Sena
tors who have heretofore followed
Senator Lodge through every stage
of tho treaty deliberations who are
numbered among the thirty-eight
counted upon by the Johnson
Borah group. The statement was

Chicago. Jan. 24.?An Arctic ex
pedition was outfitted here today to
go to the relief of the Sidney O. j
jNeff. lake steamer imprisoned by;
ice oft shore.
Four members of the crew of the
N4K, after a perilous four-hour
trip across the Ice. reached shore
safely today.
The men were tied together and
carried long poles which served as
bridges in crossing open water bc
itween the ice cakes.
They reported the eleven mem

vessel in no immediate danger.
They have some food and fuel left,
th.-y said.
An airplane, carrying food to the
Neff. left shortly after noon.
Life savers, roped together, cau
tiously groped their way across the
ice fields, dragging with them a
flat bottomed boat, partly laden
with supplies.
At the same time, the largest
tug in the Chicago district began
another attempt to cleave through
to the steamer. Possibility of suc

24TH WAR IN EUROPE
LOOMING UP STRONG
The twenty-fourth war is now loom-1
ing up strong in Europe, the bellig
j erents in this case to be Poland nnd |
Lithuania.
This is foreshadowed hy official
news here that the conference of the
Baltic States and hte former Prus
sian States at Helsingfors. Finland,
has undertaken to fix boundaries. It
j is stated that Poland desires to fix a j
j boundary for Lithuaaia which is op- j
? posed absolutely by the latter and <
that the conference may be dissolved j
as the only remedy for the impasse.
The official view here is that the
conference at Helsingfors is an in
finitely more Important gathering of
the independent States than the con- I
vention which was held at Dorpat. '
The unknown quantity in the war
j elements between. Poland and Lithu
ania is of course the attitude of the
Soviet Russians. It is believed nere
that the Soviets will probably take I
the side of Lithuania. Poland Is said I
to have under arms, but not with full i
equipment, nearly SCO.OOO men. The
Bolshevist armies in Western and
Northern Russia are said to number
500.000 men.

Paris. Jan. 24.?Marshal Foch left
for Warsaw today to complete ar

(drive against the Bolsheviki. The un

General supervision of the opera

EXTENSION OF TIME
Raris, Jan. 24.?The allied ultimatum

threatening enforcement of the pact
of Ix>ndon. which awards extensive

It was considered probable the Jugo

J The extension was considered nec

and also to give Great Britain and
