PACT IN SENATE

And Not of Purpose.

."I, bet Thompson and -Howard
went up to wash and comb their
hair," suggested one of vheir com
mittee. After a wait of 10 minutes
Thompson and . Howard appeared
: and the suspense was relieved.
Mr. Abbott introduced Mr.
i nompson, wno in xurn iniroaucca
Lacks Old Power.
"I am going to speak on things
political because I understand you
expect me to speak things political
and you won't be disappointed," he
began, and proceeded to give one of
his characteristic partisan speeches,
ridiculing everything identified with
the republican party and recom
mending the democratic medicine as
the only panacea for national ills.
After the meeting democrats were
overheard to remark that it was hot
the same Bryan of other days; that
he fell short of expectations and
that in the main his address did not
strike a real major note.
Mr. Bryan resorted to his old-time
method of illustrating his points
with stories which' evoked a laugh.
He said he felt freer to speak to
republicans because he could not
hurt them and he might do, them
some good. He referred to President
Wilson's first administration as un
paralleled. Expects Ratification.
"We had a dinner at Washington
the other day and we had all of the
men "who ' are . candidates on ur
ticket and some who were not can
didates," he said. "The president
sent a letter and I made a speech,
Pain .in Stomach, Sourness,
, Gases and Acidity relieved
with "Pape's Diapepsin"
Your upset stomach will feel fine!
No waiting! When your meals don't
fit and you feel uncomfortable; when
you belch gases, acids or raise sour
undigested food. When you feel
lumps of indigestion, pain, heartburn
or" headache from acidity, just eat a
tablet of harmless and reliable
Pape's Diapepsin and the stomach
distress is gone.
Millions of people know the magic
of Pape's Diapepsin as an antocid.
'II I. mm... .Un w. ..rlir-TA. -.-...
and disordered stomach are from
acidity. The relief comes quickly,
no disappointment, and the cost is
so ; little, too, Pape's Diapepsin
lielpf-regulate your stomach so you
can -eat favorite foods without fear.
COUGHED FOR 2 YEARS
ORDERED TO DENVER
Doctor said she couldn't got well
' in Illinois, but she did.
"I had ft ivrf bad cough for 2 years,
all the timt, day and night. Could sleep
but little. I tried everything but got
no relief. Finally my doctor said he
could do mo "more for roe, that I had
Better go to Denver as I couldn't live
In IlHnois. Then I tried Milks Emul
ion. From the very first-. It helped me.
By the time I had taken 15 bottles, my
cough left me entirely. I have gained
in strength and flesh and am now in
perfect health." -Mrs. Alice M. Huntley,
183, Mo. Pearl St., Galesburs, III.
Build tip your system and give it a
chance to fight off disease. Milks Emul
sion costs nothing to try and it has done
the work for thousands of others.
Milks Emulsion is a pleasant, nutri
tive food and a corrective medicine. It re

neither knowing what the other had
in mind. We were just approaching
great issues from different angles.
"I believe that the great majority
of the American people want the
treaty ratified just as soon as possi
ble. Eighty-one of 96 senators
wanted ths treaty ratified, but they
differed as to reservations. I tried
to show a way out and I believe we
will find a way and I expect that be
fore next Friday morning they will
agree and ratify that treaty. I believe
the fact that the league will meet on
Priilao avilt he the coercive
power. There should be a compro
mise; we cannot attora to aeiay mis
14 months; the world is in' tur
moil." He veered around again to the re
niikltra nartv hw tharirinir that the
republicans in congress dilly-dallied.
Must Ratify Treaty.
"We must ratify the treaty or take
the responsibility of 14 months' de
lav anrl fvfti in the latter event, we
turn-thirds maioritv in
the seriate or rely on the republicans
and I don t tninK tnat anyone oe
lieves there will be a two-thirds
democratic majority," he added.
Mr. Bryan stated that unless there
nn h romnrnmises on both sides
and the matter excluded from the
coming national campaign, the dem
ocrats should allow tne repimncans
to have their way and then the dem
ocrats would go before the country.
He defended President Wilson m
the course he has followed on the
grounds that if the president fol
lowed any other course he would
have been accused of bad faith by the
allies. He declared mat tne treaty
must be ratified and that when the
democrats submit their plans the re
publicans dare not go before the
people in the campaign.
Cannot Afford to Wait.
"Here is a great opportunity, rev
olution is threatening, and we cannot
afford to wait 14 months to have
our ideas tested at the polls," he
He expressed the fear that the
lepublicans will charge the demo
crats with endeavoring to force a
majority to yield to a minority on
the treaty ratification. He said he
would be pleased to get the repub
lican party with its back against the
wall and let it do the explaining of
the delay in ratifying the treaty. He
also said he wanted the treaty rati
fied without reservations. He inti
mated that if the democrats could
not obtain ratification according to
democratic ideas of fairness, then the
next best thing to do would be to let
the republicans do the ratifying and
then for the democrats to go before
the people and make amendments
Mr. Bryan followed with a refer
ence to profiteering, in which he
repeated platitudes about the dem
ocratic party being equipped to meet
the economic questions of the day
and that democrats only can set
tle profiteering. He offered no
specific relief except the abstract
reference to his party. He referred
to coal profiteering as a dark blot
upon the country. '.He urged a state
upon the country. He urged a state
trade commission, with local tri
bunals where every man charged
with profiteering could be investi
gated. "We need machinery for the pro
tection of every citizen threatened
with a wrong," he said, holding out
the hope that if the democrats are
given time enough they might es
tablish such machinery.
He defended free speech and
flaved the abuse of free speech when
used to overthrow the constituted
Great Economic Issue.
"Our greatest economic issue" now
is government ownership on one
side and private monopoly on the
other," he continued, following that
statement by asserting that the
railroad interests are working to
accomplish one great central line,
controlling enormous financial in
terests. He accused the railroads
of organizing for a gingantic at
tack against the people in their
efforts to own their transportation
lines. He said he favored a dual
system of railroad ownership, the
government own the trunk, lines, but
if it was to be a monopoly he fa
vored a government monopoly.
His closing plea for democratic
unity, because he insisted that the
democratic party is the only party
that can speak peace to the troubled

Democratic Leaders and "Mild
Reservation" Republicans Op-
timistic of Result
Washington, Jan. 12. -Further
progress toward compromising the
senate peace treaty controversy was
reported tonight by democratic
leaders and "mild reservation" re
publicans, but spokesmen for re
publicans favoring the Lodge res
ervations and those opposing the
treaty, declared they could see no
indication of early action.
Senate lobbies and private offices
seethed again today with confer

the democrats.' Among "sounding
out" developments was further ex
change of views between "mild res

Kendrick, Wyoming, and McKellar,

The democrats must secure Presi

spokesmen said, before substantial
progress can be made. Some ot the
democratic senators said they hoped
negotiations would reach a stage
soon where conferences, between the
president and democratic senators on
some definite proposals affecting
the reservations would be in order.
Telegrams from William J. Bryan
urging ratification by Fridaj-, when

of nations council is to be held,

it might be possible to, dispose of
