JjL decision one way or the aher is planned for Wednesdayj and under the cloture rule the leaders say it cannot be delayed beyond Thursday or Friday. To morrow the senate will remain in.session until it has cleared away all proposed reservations, leaving nothing to do but to act ufon the ratification resolution itself. Four reservations two of thm proposed by the foreign re lations committee, were voted down today and none was adopt ed. The President's determination was made 'known at the White Flouse conference with Democrat ic leader ; Hitchcock, who after- t wards declared that Mr Wilson vrotftd nevei have the opportuni ty to Ipocket the treaty because his supporters in the senate would vote down any ratification resolution that contained the un acceptable reservations The senate leader reiterated his be belief that once such a resolution is defeated there will be a com promise that will keep ihe treaty alive.

In Every Case Except one the Republicans Voted Solidly for Committee Proposals. Washington, Nov 15 - At last clamping down the lid on its peace treaty debate, the senate substituted action for discussion today with a vigor 'hat quickly advanced the ratification fight into its final stages. Working under cloture for thefirst time in history, the senate adopted in five hours, 10 more of the . Preservations written by tbe foreign relai tions committee and with only two committee proposals remaining, set the fparliamen tary'stage for a decision of a deadlock on the treaty early hext weeek. Republican and Democrats leaders worked together to in oke cloture, piling up a ma j rity which far exceeded the vo thirds necessary for adop iou. Iu the count of 76 to 16 wo parties contributed about -ivnnly. The roll call over, however ind cloture) a fact, the Repub lican managers took complete cuarge ana sweat Hvervtnmc ' r U before thnm. Reservation after reser7atiou went through just as it came from the committees until the Dam ocats abandoned hoDes of making modification and re signei themselves to a pas' sive resistance. JVlaj britiesjjuging from -1 1 to 23 marked adoption of the ten reservations. They re lated to domestic questions, the Monroe doctriqe, man dates, Shantung, internation al commissions, expenses of the league of nations, arma ments, j,rje economic boycott and alien property rights. lu every case except one the Republicans voted solid ly for the cemmitte proposals. They were j Dined on every roil call by from four to nine Democrats. In all, an even dozen senators of the admini stration party bioke away during the day to vote for reservations. The sole de -fection from the Republican ranks was on ttfe Shantung reservations. Senator McCum ber of North Dakota, swing ing over to the opposition. The Thirtieth Did it. There has hardly been a single person in the South who doubted as to what division really broke the Hindenburg line on the 29th of September 1918, but in tbe North the newspaper writers and magazine writers have been inclined to give the praise to the 27th Division, who were fighting on the left side of the 30. h Divis ion in that battle. The matter has been - definitely established however, it seems, with the an nouncement by the war depart ment that the 30th Division real ly broke the German line first. In seeking to establish this real line breakers on the out skirts of Bellicourt Southerners have not attempted to take any credit from the 27thth Division, but at the same time they have endeavored to give their own sol diers their just dues, and it is right and fair that the T-Var De partment should make a public statement giving the facts and giving to the members of both the 27th and 30th Division their just dues.
