The American Senate adjourned last Saturday without coming to any

fresh decision about the Peace Treaty. Mr. Bryan and Mr. Taft have declared themselves in favour of ratifying the Treaty with some reservations, but the President has again let it be known that he will not accept any reserva- tions. The Republican Senators have revived their proposal to make peace with Germany by repealing the resolution of Congress authorizing war upon her.
