DISCUSSES POINTS OF TREATY
THAT HAVE C01IE INTO DIS
PUTE IN DEBATE IN SENATE
CONFERS WiTH REPUBLICANS
Imparts Information About Shan
tung Settlement; Says Some Con
structions of Pact Evident
Washington, July IS. President
Wilson talked over the peace treaty
with four more republican senators
at the White House Friday and later
he went to the capitol and discussed
the entire senate situation with
Senator Hitchcock, leader of the ad
ministration forces in the ratifica
The republican senators asked for
information about many features of
the treaty and Senator Hitchcock
tcld the president of other points
that have come into dispute during
senate debate. At the end of tha
day of conferences, Mr. Wilson told
a group of correspondents he was
satisfied that to reach a solution it
was only necessary to "clarify coun
sel." There had been many misunder
standings about the treaty. the
.-resident said, adding that some of
the constructions placed on it seem
ed to hi in evident misinterpreta
tions. Senator McNary. Oregon, one of
the republicans who went to the
White Hou e. .said first impressions
I about the Shantung settlement had
been softened ly his talk with the
president. While Senator Capper.
Kansas, said Mr. Wilson had given
him nruch new and pertinent infor-
matie-n on that subject. Senators i
Kellogg. Minnesota, and Kcnyon.
Iowa, the others ho taw the i: resi
dent, declined afterward to talk.
S-iiator JIcNary has been a sup-

Plattsmouth is to be given another annua! trcul by ihe Chautauqua route. To make this
a success, as in former years, it is necessary that everybody in this community boost for it, talk for

SEE THAT YOUR NEIGHBOR DOES THE SAME THING.
A season ticket at $2.50 for adults and $1.25 for children (plus war tax) entitles you to
both afternoon and evening performances. Were you to attend but half the numbers you would
still be ahead financially if you purchased a season ticket.

Senator Hitchcock described th
president as feeling "very cheerful"
over the senate outlook, though he
said Mr. Wilson did not discuss
what the republican senator had
said at the White House. The Ne
braska senator said that he had told
the president it was assured that
the treaty could not be amended.
Another Message Expected.
One result of Friday's conference
was to strengthen the report that
the president soon might setm to
the senate a special message regard
ing Shantung. Some of the White
House callers during the pa.it two
days have gained th impression
that seme sort of declaration on the
subject certainly would be forth
coming, and opinion, seer.vd gener

form of a senate mes-age. perhaps
