COBALT, OnL, Nov. northern Ontario the question of the secession of this part of.the province from southern Ontario is oc.c of the chief topics of discus- sion. The movement has. gained such proportions as to be impos- siblc to Ignore it. The advisabil- ity of such a will.probably discussed In detail by the leading citizens of the north. To this end a monster conven- tion is being planned and probably will be held about the stcond or third week in January, The pres- ent situation appears to have bten born of the belief, long standing, that the mining and lumbsrlrg ditlrjcts have not received dut recognition.

WASHINGTON, Nov. fab of ttie treaty of peiM with Ger- many and the league of nations, bo far as the United Stales Is concerned, loday Is again In the hands of President Wilson.. and last night of all efforts lo haye the treaty ratified In some form by the senate brought the situation Just where it was six months ago, when the pact was submitted the upper house of congress and technically peace is no nearer than It was on armistice day, more than a year ago. With Ihe much debated and much contested document thruit tack upon him, the next move is up lo the president and today there was no intimation what course he would pursue. In any event !t was not be- lieved there would be any developments until congress reconvenes, Dec. 1, In regular cession. Opinion as to what may be expected then Is divided. Senator Lodge, majority leader, who led the forces opposed lo adoption of the treaty .presented, declared the failure of ratification last night killed the pact, unless President Wilson "circumvented the senate rules" by withdrawing it and then submitting It at the new seslon next month. Democratic leaders suggested that the president, during the r'ecesj. might see fit lo feel out the other powers as to their attitude on reserva- tions with a view of bringing the treaty to some sort of ratification at the- December session- If re-submitted the treaty would come before tho senate us new bmlness and debate on it would not be governed by the closure rule Invoked in the closing days of the session just adjourned.
