P.y DAVID LA WHENCE. (Special Despatch to The 'Reformer.) Copyright WASHINGTON. March 20. The four-power pact will be ratified by a mar gin of from three to five votes. The expected 11th hour pronouncement from Wood row Wilson against tho Pa cific treaty will not materialize, though it is known he absolutely is opposed to the principle of the treaty. This information, obtained from Demo cratic' sources, amounts to a concession that the treaty will be rat hied though, of course, in such a close situation a change of a vote or two' may alter the whole aspect of things. The attempt to draw Woiwlrow Wilson into the controversy is one of the inter est ins nhases of the treaty tight which has not yet been fully disclosed. sion ot opinion nas -prevailed IT BE DONE 1 HVE CCMS 7C INTSCwUCETeYOu NC HOME SHOULD Be W!TH- O'JT TK3 ViONOERF Ui.

Some of the Democrats have felt t hat Wilson ought to speak out.

He said on that 'occa sion "You know that the .I'nitod States has always felt, from the very beginning of her ' Jiistory, that she must keep herself separate from any kind of connection in European polities, and I want to say i very iraiiKty to you mat sue is not now interested in the partnership of right be tween America and Europe. , "If the future had nothing for us but a new attempt to keep the world at a right poise by a balance of powr, the I'nitod States would take no interest, be cause she will join no combination of powers which is not a combination of all of us. She is 'not interested merely in the peace of Europe, but in the peace of the world."

Harmony Place Democratic side of the senate is that the former president has decided to keep hands off his party colleagues and let them decide tho question for themselves. Wilson's silence has had the effect of dividing his friends. Some of them, like Senator John Sharp Williams of Missis sippi, are going to vote for the four power treaty because it appears to be an alliance with a few powers as against . other nations. They favored nn alliance ,or league of all nations, but not a special combination in which others could not even join if their interests were affected. Senator Robinson of Arkansas. Demo crat, sought by amendment to provide that other powers could join, but the pro posal was voted lo"n. Outside the sen ate, too. Wilson's iriends are divided on the subject. Kaymund II. Fosdiek. who was to have been American representative on the secretariat of the league of nations if the Enited States had become a mem ber under the Wilson administration, says the four-power pact is in harmonv with i ne preservation or tne pence ot the 1'a oitie. To that extent the four-power pact is in harmony with the league of nations; but he has feared that method of group ing a few powers in any combination de signed to protect them against the ag gression of another power or group of powers would lead only to the establish ment of rival ententes and alliances such as -have divided the world and brought, on wars in the pat.
