Tjfrl?KS WOULD BE BACKWARD STEP Amendment Made by the Senate, in the Opinion of Mr. Roosevelt, Destroys the Value of the Treaties asa Mov? ement in Behalf of General Arlntation?Chairman Cullom Says Sena? tor's Position is Right. Washington, February 13.?President Roosevelt will not present the arbitration treaties, as amended bi the Senate, to the couutries with which they wer? negotiated. In reply to numerous inquiries by repre? sentatives of the press at the State De? partment today, Secretary Hay made in substance the following statement: I'ONCLUDKI) BY SENATE ACTION. '"The President regards the matter of 0?? general arbitration treaties as conclud? ed by the action of the Senate on Satur? day. He recognizes the ritcbt of the Sen? ate to reject a treaty either by a direct vote in that sense, or indirectly by chan? ges which are incompatible with its spirit and purpose. He considers that with the Senate amendment the treaties not only cease to be a step forward in the cause of general arbitration, but are really a ?tep backward, and therefore he is unable to present them in this altered form to the countries with which we have been in negotiation." The trealies were received at the While House today, and following the usual pro? cedure they will be recorded and forwaid ed to the State Department. They will be sent to the librarian where, in accordance with the statement issued by Secretary Hay, they will remain. Washington, February 13.?Senator Cullom, chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, after reading Secretary Hay's comment on the action ol the Sen? ate in amending the arbitration treaties, inlaid: "The Senate's position is right, un? doubtedly, if anything is done hereafter, the President will have to take the Senate into his confidence. It might require a little more time, but otherwise I can see nothing in the Senate's course inharmon? ious with the President's interpretation of his treaty-making power."

RUSSIANS 10 LOSE MUKDEN. Kuropatkin ha* headquarters in Train and is Ready to Retreat. Pek'ng. Feb. 14.?Au Englishman, who has just returned from a three day's visit in Mukden, reports the predominant feel inii among the KiiFgiane, l?oth civilian and military, to be d?couragement. Every? body spoke of the early occupation of the city by the Japanese as a foregone conclu? sion. The visitor formed the opinion that the discouragement among military men was intensified by the fact that Cen Kuro? patkin bas his headquarters in a train, as if ready at any time to retreat northward, and by the fact that extensive prepara? tions are being made at Tie Pass to give battle to the Japanese, which impliee a previous Russian defeat at Mukden. Immense confusion prevails at Mukden, according to the same authority. He states the Chinese are well paid and well treated by the Russians, and are doius a roaring business. Train loads of supplies are daily carried to the Russians by the ! Cninese railway, via Msinmintun. Une of ! the most sei ?ous consequences of a Rus siad defeat would be the cutting off of ibis source of fupply. Many Japanese interviewed recently ex? press alarm at the suggested revision by an international congress of the terms of peace between Uussia and Japan. When it is ltmembered that the origin of the present war is traceable to international interference after the war between China and Japan, one cannot but be surprised at the concern of those who witness the pres? ent intrigues for summoning an interna? tional conference.

Loux, was at Leonardo, N. J., at the home of his wife's sister. Taking advantage of his absence Mrs. Loux took the children into a bed? room, placed tbem in bed, turned on the gas and reposed herself beside her little ones to die with them. Neighbors deemed it strange that no one was ast'r today, and Ralph Matthews climbed a tres and went in through the bedroom window. Both children were deal. Mr. Loux was unponsjious, but still breathing, and was taken to the hospita'. The doctors announced a fair chance for her recovery. A letter addressed to the Lusband ex? plained, in a pathetic manner, the pre? parations the hid made to accomplish the deed. "You know how I have suffered," she wrote. "Minnie and E'si* both have trouble with their throats and I know they have inherited this dreadful asthma from me. It is not right that they should grow up only to suffer." The letter contained instructions as to the burial of the children. Physicians are convinced that Mrs. Loux was entirely bereft of reason when she did the act.
