Senator Hoke Smith, Democrat, of Georgia, denied emphatically there was any foundation for \hc report he was heading a "revolt" against the Administration In the treaty tight. His advocacy of ratification with reservations was not new, he stated, and did not mean he favored all it the ?o-called Dodge reservations. Sera Earljr Agrrraarat. "I never said that 90 per cent of the weople of Georgia favored the Dodge reservations," Smith said. "A ma' Jorlty of my people favor ratification with reservations. I think the Senate ?ught to get together on a non-1 partisan basis and agree to reserva tions and ratify the treaty. I am sure this will be accomplished eventuaUy. "Any talk of my leading a 'revolu tion' Is absurd. I am working in har mony with Senators who desire ratifl vmtlon. I have conferred with Mr. JHltchcock since my return from Geor and I gathered from what he told he considered the situation most couraging." There was no conference of Demo ratic Senators at 'Smith's Washlng ~n residence yesterday, as was widely raided as a "revolt" against the esldent.

In view of Underwood'a expected abaence, it was stated that no at tempt will be made today to call up his reaolutlon providing for tho creation of a Senate committee of ten, five Democrats and five Repubil cana, to work out a treaty com promise. An effort might be made by Senator Knox, Republican, of Pennsylvania, to call up his reaolutlon declaring for ratification of the treaty, inao far as it affects the technical state of war still existing between tha United States and Germany, it was reported, but as the Republican "mild reservationlsts" are opposed to Knox's proposal, doubt was expressed wheth er the Pennsylvania Senator would be able to do more than provoke a fresh treaty debate.
