Spencer. Washington, July 26. The next important move in the senate dis agreement over resolutions to the peace treaty is expected to come from President Wilson. Having canvassed the senate situation in .his conferences with IS republican senators, all of whom are said to have told him thev would support certain reservations, it is expected the j president soon will make known definitely his attitude toward such a I course. It is indicated at the White j House that expression of his views on the subject might not await hit speaking tour to begin two weeks hence, but might be embodied in a public statement in a few days. This aroused great interest among republican senators. Several repub licans have told Mr. Wilson the treaty never could be ratified with out interpretative qualifications, and Friday at the suggestion, it is un derstood, of Republican Leader Lodge, a tentative draft of reserva tions indicating in general way the trend of opinion among many republican senators was laid before the president by Senator Spencer, republican, Missouri. Now President's Move. Leaders for reservation say it is now the president's move. Tfie group of republicans who are under the lead of Senators McCum ber, North Dakota, and McNary, Oregon, are working on a reserva tion program, designed to clarify the league of nations covenant with out vitally weakening it, believe the president will announce his ac ceptance of such a course and that quick ratification of the treaty will ensue. In their talks with Mr. Wil son, they say, he has indicated no radical antagonism to senate quali fications, his only fear being that the whole -subject might be thrown back into renegotiation. The president s democratic sup porters in the senate are not in ac cord with this view and predict he will assert ehimself for unreserved ratification and then go to the coun try in an effort to fortify public sentiment behind that stand. Sees no Republicans. The i president saw no republican senators Saturday, but in a letter to Mr. Lodge replied to inquiries about the treaty sent to the White House bv the foreign relations committee.

Even the Amer ican embassy is involved in the des perate strategy of Newport and New York society leaders to secure the coveted honor of entertaining tiie Prince of Wales during his Ameri can visit, if only for 15 minutes at a garden party or at some Newport palace. The war is on among the design ing dames of the upper "400" and no sione is leu unturned even tnat supporting the door mat marked "welcome" at the United States em bassy in Grosvenor Gardens. Cables Sent Davis. From a person familiar with the circumstances, Universal Service learns that all 'sorts of cables are received by Ambassador Davis from New York, Newport and Washing ton pleading or demanding that the ambassador use his influence at Buckingham to secure a modification of the prince's announced plan to stick to his warship during his brief stay at New York. "Why, some of these designing ladies have even gone so far as to bring influence to bear upon some pet senator at Washington to get him to send a personal cable to Mr. Davis urging that he 'swing the deal'," said my informant. "It is a safe bet that somebody will try to reach Mrs. Wilson, hop ing that she'll 'put it across' with the president." Messages Sent Queen. It is reported that even Queen Mary is receiving cables, sometimes couched in quite undiplomatic terms, urging her to let her boy Edward grace some Newport holiday. But one might as well firmly and kindly "tip off" these American society tacticians that such delicate ap proaches never get beyond the queen's third assistant private sec retary. Not without wisdom have the roy al parents planned that their boy should make a warship on the Hud son his castle during his New York sojourn. Realizing what a scramble there would be to secure the pres ence pf the heir to the throne, the king and queen have emphatically quashed anything so undignified by hitting upon the warship scheme. Not all the millions and influence of the "upper 400" can change the plan one dot.

In the correspondence with the president given outby Mr. Dallin ger, the latter quoted from the news paper account and asked for addi tional information so that he might "learn from the War department the punishment meted out to those guilty." The president replied as follows: "My dear Mr. Dallinger: "The newspaper article to which you refer was entirely inaccurate. Mrs. Wilson saw no evidence of vio lence on the patient whom she met in base hospital No. 57 and her in quiries brought out tne fact that whereas one of the prisons used by the American army in Paris had been delivered over to them in a very bad condition, the condition? had been rapidly corrected and such harsh treatment as had been prac ticed in one or two instances had been promptly checked. "Very sincerely vours, "WOODROW WILSON."
