' •'-.-. • -..:•• Washington, March 8.—President Wilson" ; regards as unnecessary, any further discussion of the treaty reservations with Democratic senators. Inasmuch as he made his position clear to Senator Glass at the White House two weeks ago. . This was disclosed at the White House, and was the only response to Senator Hitchcock's letter suggesting that the president receive -Senator Simmons and discuss with him the whole treaty situation as, the rank and file of senate Democrats saw it. Democratic senators said that the president clearly intends to s»ind to the finish upon the position he has •assumed, but they disclosed the fact that Senator Glass reported to them ou his return from his recent conference with the president that he believed Mr. Wilson would accept the reservation on article X which was considered in the bipartisan conferences, and would deposit ratification containing that reservation. This was new light on the president's attitude, but in the oplu'.ub of senators it did not make the situation as -to ratification any more hopeful. It did. open, a way, they thought, to putting" all the responsibility for defeat of the treaty upon Senator Lodge, his supporters, and the Borah irre- concilables.
