WASHINGTON. July IO.—President Wilson, in presenting the peace treaty wit!# Germany to the Senate today, declared that “The League of Nations had become a practical necessity, to which framers of the treaty felt obliged to turn." The most skeptical of conferees at Paris. Wilson said, had turned more and more to the league as discussion progressed, in seeking a solution of problems that arose in framing the treaty. Wilson said the agreement as to league covenant has given the conferees a feeling that their work was to be permanent and that the most practical among the-m “were at last most ready to refer to league superintendence of all interests which did not admit of immediate settlement of all administrative problems which were to «require continual oversight.” When the president entered the Senate, the galleries cheered for one minute, disregarding chamber rules.
ASSAULT AND BATTERY CASE TRIED YESTERDAY
Joe Watson, colored, who has given more or less trouble to the enforcement officers for a long time, was tried again in the mayor’s court yesterday afternoon.
The case against Joe was for making an assault on his divorced wife, Ophelia Watson. He was represented by Attorney E. S. Ratliff and the case was hotly contested at every turn by Mr. Ratliff and by the city attorney, J. W. Dean.
The trouble came up last Monday night in the negro quarters. Ophelia Watson was living in a house near the Frisco railroad, with her baby. Joe came along and told her to go with him, supposedly to his mother’s. Shortly after they left, Ophelia came running back by her house and screaming. Joe followed to the house, where he got the baby and took it to his mother’s. Several wetnesses testified to this.
Ophelia stated on the stand that Joe struck her in tho sMe, on tho arm and on the top of her head with a heavy pistol, the wound on the head necessitating the calling of a doctor and having the wound dressed. She ran away from Joe and stayed that night at the home of a neighbor. Joe claimed he did not strike Ophelia, but that sh* i and hurt her head. A number of witnesses testified in the case.
Attorney Ratliff made a strong appeal for his client and undertook to impeach the testimony of many of the negroes on the stand. He stated that Ophelia Watson was the cause of all the trouble and that she was a “choc” drinker, dope fiend, bootlegger and a much worse woman than Joe was a man. The room was crowded with spectators, and a great many negroes were present, which caused the mayor to keep his fan in operation because of the summer time atmosphere.
Tho mayor decided Watson was guilty of the offense against and filled him $20 and costs, son has another charge of assault against him which will be tried Saturday, and a third charge of carrying a dangerous weapon, to be tried at the same time.
Final touches were put on the preparations for the big revival at the meeting at the tabernacle last night. A meeting of the chairmen of the various committees was call nl at eight o’clock and most of the committee heads were present. Every report indicated that definite plans had been formulated as far as could be until the meeting is actually in* progress. Such committees as the publicity and ladies work reported work already under wav and every part running smooth-ly while the work of the tabernacle was on hand to speak for itself.
With last night’s meeting ended one phase of the great revival. The preliminaries were at an end the community was brought to face with the real thing, spirit of genuine and confident enthusiasm pervades the organization that has brought about the event for Ada. Only the appearance of Mr. Ham and Mr. Ramsay is necessary to make the plan complete and tonight at the big tabernacle it is expected that they will take over the meeting and begin what promises to be the greatest religious effort in the history of the city.
The rally-cry of the revival is “Get Right With God.” You have faced the call wherever you have turned on the street. It has called to vou from the show window, from the windshield of the moving cai. from the telephone post, and from the newspaper page. This slogan has a significance that can best be illustrated by the story of its origin in the words of the originator —a business man who made it a business proposition in the spiritual way. The story follows:
“In the year 1871, I sat one night in my home, from seven o’clock until midnight, thinking, praying, and reading these words. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten that whosoever believeth on perish but have

In the letter of June 25, among other things, they say: We wish to thank you very kindly for going to the trouble of striding us the Ada Evening News, and assure you that we appreciate the interest you take in the Universal Reductions.
“You have arranged one of the best displays of Dorothy Phillips in ‘Destiny’ that the writer has ever seen.

W EIM AR, July 9. via Coblenz.-The resolution ratifying the peace treaty was adopted by the German National Assembly today by a vote of 208 to 115.
The text of the ratification resolution, as introduced in the National Assembly, consisted of two clauses, reading as follows:
“The peace treaty between Ger-many and the allied and associated powers, signed on June 28, 1919, and the protocol belonging thereto, as well as the agreement relating to the occupation of the Rhineland, signed the same day, are agreed to.
“This law comes into force on the day of its promulgation.”
Tho National Assembly By ratifying the treaty makes it possible for the allied and associated powers to raise the blockade. Official notification wras sent to Germany June 29 that the blockade would he raised when the treaty was ratified. Placing this condition on the raising of the blockade was looked upon in peace conference circles as a sure plan for securing speedy ratification by Germany.
The council of five on Monday decided to lift the commercial censorship on communications with German} simultaneously with the removal of the blockade.
When three of the principal allied powers, in addition to Germany, have ratified the treaty it becomes effective for those who have ratified it. After Germany and the three allied powers have ratified it the treaty will come into force for each power on t^e day when it notifies the peace conference secretariat of its ratification. •

The resolution adopted by the allied council concerning the blockade was as follows:
