TREATY CONTEST Unconditional Ratification Ideas Discouraging to Many Democratic Senators. WASHINGTON, Jan. 1.-President Wilson has broken his leng period of inactivity over the peace treaty and has assumed charge of the! fight to bring about ratifjeaton by the senate. He sent Secretary Tumulty to the capltol to confer with'Hitchcock and other senators in the administration group to ascertain the exact situation. The immediate effect of Tumiiity's visit was to cast an atmosphere of gloom upon the democratic side. It has been bending energies for a compromise by means of reservations, which they hoped the president would be willing to accept The impression these senators received was that the president is more disinclined than ever to yield to any sort of ratification except unconditional. But disappointment was written plainly upon Hltdhcock's face when he stated that Tumulty brought'him no message from the president and that he carried no message back.- It has been the hope of tnese. administration !
