for the public expression of Patterson In
the senate In favor of the administration
Tho spirit manifested n the caucus and
voiced by several, leading senators In em
phatic expressions after the caucus ad
journed, was that today's action meant that
the democrats of the senate would have
united party action mi matters determlnod
by two-thirds of their numbers to be ques
tions affecting purty policy. Those who
don't abide by caucus decision will not be
regarded as democrats and the potnt will
be raised against them should they appear
In future caucuses of the party.
Mr. Patterson declined to make any ex
planation of his leaving the caucus.
It Is supposed that all of the republicans
will vote for the treaty and that four dem
ocratic votes are necessary to secure Its
ratification. There are eighty-nine sena
tors, there being one vacancy from Del
aware, und probably one vote. Burton, will
not lie cast or paired. Therefore fifty
eight votes are necessary for the ratifica
tion. The republicans have fifty-four votes
without Burton, and four votes from the
opposition will give them the required two
thirds. Democratic leaders don't believe
these four votes will be forthcoming and
express the hope that senators who may
be favorably disposed towards the treaty
will feel bound by the caucus action today.

the men prepared for battle. In ten min

presumptuous on his part to appoar at the

Wesley J. Cook will not be reappointed. He
will give way to someone else within a

Good Resnlta of Tree Planting.
The succeas of the tree planting opera

Nebraska has Indicated to the ranchmen
In the Sand Hill country the advisability of

The Jack pine and western yellow pine are
very promising, and, In addition, certain of
rapid-growing broad-leafed trees, such as
Carolina poplar, green ash and Cottonwood,
can be used.
In the spring of 1!M aome ten or a dozen
ranchmen planted small quantities of Jack
pine obtained front the woods of northern
Minnesota on trial. Authoritative reports
from nearly all of these men show a high
proportion of successes, only two absolute
failures being reported, and these because
of unfavorable locations and lack of care.
