Debate On Treaties Washington. Senate debate on1 the The new Pope Pius XI has gone thru the ceremony of being crowned under the dome of St Peter Cathe dral. The whole of the basilica was crowded with people and many mora on the outside who were unable to get in. The papal blessing followed the crowning, and the whole Catho lic world was happy. The new Pop has expressed a regret that the American Cardinals could not be present and much affection for the American people, especially because of their services during the war. The presence of . American Cardinals probably would not have altered the result but it seems reasonable that if American Catholic are to have Car dinals at all they ought to have a voice in so important a matter as the election of a Pope. Pius XI assert that he will not give up the tradi tional claims to the papal lands, bat will seek to reach an understanding with the government of Italy, and there is hope of a better feeling. Th Washington Conference i now a thing of the past The seven trea t;es are signed by the delegate and are now to go for ratification to the countries concerned. President Harding has already submitted them to the Senate and in the speech made on that occasion he urged the rati fication of all the treaties, suggest ing the naval disarmament treaty for first consideration. A part of the Senate, however, desire to con sider the Four Power Alliance first and there are some sign of discord apparent It is hardly believable FIRST TAYLOR CASE ARRFST Walter Thle'e's Cap May Fin-ir In Myatary Mabel Normand Q i tionrd and C'aartd Los Angeles. !..
