Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WARM WORDS PASSED. Washington, Ferb. 16.—Not in oent years has the house witnessed such a speotaole as it did Monday, with Mr. Snlllvna of Massachusetts and W il­ liam R. Heasrt of New York as the oentral figures. Both indulged in per­ sonalities of the gravest obaraoter and stirred the house so as to arouse among oertaln members a feeling of the great­ est indignation. Mr. Sullivan heaped' upon Mr. Hearst a triads of denuncia­ tion, while thelatter by implication charged Mr. Sullivan with complicity murder. The affair grew out of »ent discussion of the freight rate question in the bonse, when Mr. Sulli­ van inquired of Mr. Lamar of Florida, who was favoring the Hearzt bill, why Mr. Hearst did not defend hit own bill, this being followed by a criticism of Mr. Sullivan in the New York Ameri- Seveal appeals were made to speaker Cannon to cause the two men to desist in their abuse of eaoh other.

TREATIES RATIFIED BETWEEEN THE UNITED STATES AND FOREIGN COUNTRIES Celebration In Japan.

The 8 enate, By a Vote of 60 to 9 Paee .an Amendment Substituting the Word “ Treaty” for “Agreement\ In Each Treaty—President Roosevelt Opposed Such Action. President Roosevelt has addressed a letter to Senator Cullom, chairman of the committee on foreign relations, stating that the action .of that oommit­ tee in amending the arbitration treat­ ies by substituting for the word ‘agreement\ the word “treaty” is. In his opinion, not a step forward, bnt a step backward. If the word ’treaty” is substituted the treaties would amount to a spe­ cific announcement against the whole principle of a general arbitration treaty. The president also aays that If, In the judgment of the president, an amendment nullifies a proposed treaty, it seems to him that it la less clearly hla duty to refrain from endeavoring to secure a ratification of the amended treaty. Senator Cullom read the letter aloud during an executive session of the senate. It waa received with a great deal of surprise and several senators asserted that the letter confirmed what they had claimed, namely, that the words \treaty” and “agreement” were the essential points. They In­ sisted that If the word \agreement” if “treaty” was used It would give the president full power to nego­ tiate agreements without submitting them to the senate. The senate, by a vote o f 60 to 9, Saturday passed an amendment to all of the arbitration treaties by substi­ tuting the word “treaty” for \agree­ ment” In the second article of each, it was this amendment to which the president was opposed. The senste ratified the arbitration treaties between the United 8 tatee and eight European governments. It re- two sessions to reach an agree­ ment. At the first session oonsldi tion was given to the communication from the president to Senator Cullom, in the form of a protest of any amend­ ment being adopted. At the second session the treaties were amended and ratified with only nine votes against the amendment made by the senate committee on foreign relations. Washington, Feb. 16. — President Roosevelt w ill not present the arbitra­ tion ties tinea, as amended by the sen­ ate, to the oouctries with which they were negotiated. In reply to numerous inquiries re­ ported by the press at the state depart­ ment,Secretary Hay made in sohstanoe the following statement: “ The president regards the matter of general arbitration treaties as ooDelud­ ed by the action of the senate on Sat- dnray. He reoognlzes the right of the senate to reject a treaty either by direot vote in that sense or indirectly by changes which are iuoombatible with the spirit He oonsiders that with the senate amendment the treaties not only oeaae to be a step forward in the c u m of general arbitration, but are really a step backward, and there­ fore he is unable to present them in this altered form to the countries with whioh we have been negotiations.” President in New York Qty New York, Feb. 16.—For the first time sinos the days when he was gov- ----- of New York, President Roosevelt uted the heart of the East sifts, where, as guest of the Hungarian Re­ publican olnb, he dined and spoks at the restaurant \Little Hungary.” Guarded by mounted police and se­ cret men, through streets cleared Mid cordonedftjy patrolmen be drove from upper ¥ 1 th avenue into the crowded diatrlot whloh Ilea around Seocnd avenue and East Houston street, a fe- gion of small shops and tenements and largely populated by foreign barn olti* Harrisburg, Pa., Feb. 16.—On rec­ ommendation of the board of 'pardons Governor Penny packer withdrew the death warrants In the case of Mrs. Kate Edwards, the white woman, and Samnal Greason, the negro, who woe under sentence to bang together at Reading Friday for the murder o f Mrs. Edwards’ husband In 1901.
