THURSDAY, DECEMBER TO, lqoo.
On Thursday Senator Hanna made
the opening speech on the Ship Snl»sid>
He mad? a very forcible and practi
cal argument, speaking for nearly three
hours, using no notes, and discussing
the subject with a thonghtfulness which
showed his complete knowledge of it in
all its details He was frequently in
terrogated, ami was ready with his
answers and arguments. This was
Senator Hanna's first extended effort in
del>ate, and it manifested more than
ever his powers of ready, forcible speech
unadorned with any flowers of rhetoric,
but always clear and to the point.
The vote of «5 to 17, by which the
Senate that day adopted the Davis
amendment to the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty, most conclusively shows the
sentiment of that body upon the ques
tion at issue concerning the Nicaraguan
canal. The Davis amendment provides
that none of the conditions and stipula
tions of this treaty regarding the neu
trality of the canal ~shall apply to
measures which the United States may
find it necessary to take for securing,
by its own forces, the defence of the
United States and the maintenance of
public order ' While this does not
cover the erection of permanent fortifi
cations upon Nicaraguan territory. It
gives the United States power, so far as
any joint agreemeut with Great Britian
is concerned, to protect the canal in
time of war. The amendment is based
upon that article of the treaty of Con
stantinople. made October 29, 1889 be
tween Turkey and the European powers
regarding the Suez canal which provides
that similar conditions and stipulations
shall not interfere with measures which
Turkey and Egypt 'might find it neces
sary to take for securing by their own
forces the defense of Egypt and th
maintenance of public order, or the de
fence of Turkey's other posessions sit

Henry Ives Cobb, George Edward
Harding and William TysonGooch,arch
itects of wide fame whose plans for
the State Capitol at Harrisburg, Pa.,
were accepted by the Capitol Commis
ioa a gainst the protest of a board of ex
perts, were severly censured by the
American Institute of Architects at its
meeting in Washington, Saturday, and
informed that their membership in that
body was no longer desired
The directors of the institute, in their
annual report presented last Wednesday
declared that Messrs. Cobb, Harding and
Gooch had been guilty of unprofession
It is assumed that the censure by the
American Institate of Cobb, Harding
and Gooch was because cf their sub
mission of plans after the first drawings
had been rejected.
The House on Saturday passed the
war revenue reduction bill. The oppo
sition sought to recommit the bill with
instructions to report back a measure
reducing the revenue at least $70,000,
000 and including a provision for an in
come tax so drawn as to escape an ad
verse decision of the Supreme Court.
The motion failed. 131 to 155. There
upon the bill was passed without the
concurrence of the minority, who re
frained from voting.
The amendment placed in the bill
yesterday to tax express receipts was de
feated on an aye and no vote
in the House, 125 to 139. The [tension
appropriation bill, carrying $145,145,
230, was passed in exactly 13 minutes.
On Monday the Rivers and Harbors
committee decided to make an imme
diate appropriation of $50,000 for the
site and preliminary work and a con
tinuous appropriation of $250,000 for
the construction of the lock to each of
the following dams on the upper Ohio;
Dam No. 8, located below East Liver
pool; dam No. 11, located below Wells
bnrg, and dam No. 14, located below
Sistersyille, W. Va. The first of these
will make a harljor for East Liverpool
and points above, while No. 11 makes a
harbor for Wellsbnrg, Mingo and Stenb
enville. and No. 14 for Sistersville and
New Martinsville. It will take about
three years to complete the locks in
each case, and the total cost of each im
provement is estimated at t850,000.
Argninentc were begun in the United
States Supreme Court late Monday af
ternoon in two of the most important
cases ever brought before that high
tribunal. Unless the conrt finds some
way for them without going into the
merits of the great questions involved
that angust tody must say whether the
"Constitution follows the flag" and
whether it is possible to erect tariff
barriers l>etween the States and organ
ized Territories of the United States
and the islands we have acquired dur
ing the last three years.
One case is a claiirr for a refund of
customs duties paid on an importation
of sugar from Puerto Rico and the
other is for a judgement for the value
of 11 diamond rings brought to the
States by a soldier who bought them in
the Philippines, but which the customs
officers sold for unpaid duties. The
Puerto Rico case may be thrown out
for want of jurisdiction or something of
that kind, but it seems impossible
for the diamond rings case to l>e de
cided without a detennitiftion of the
question most generally debated in the
campaign last fall.
The cftstoms officers sold the gems
because duty was not paid on tbem as
late as September 25, 1899, long after
the treaty of Paris gave ns the Philip
pines, and when, if ever, the Constitu
tion applied to them without question.
A decision against the United States
would mean that millions of money col
lected must be returned to the import
ers. it would mean that the prislncts
of the cheap labor of the islands could
be brought here without any restric
tions. and, above all, it would mean
that we cannot carry ont our promises
to give every Nation equal privileges
with ourselves in the Philippines. The
"open door" there would bo closed, and
there would l>e some dnnger that the
"open door" in China would also be
closed against us.
The Sharon and Butler railroad, the
line projected by the Sharon Coal and

It is said that the transportation fa

1 tons more ore can shipped
south during the coming season than
c-juld le handled tliis year. Con

Legislators are now invading Harris
burg singly aud in groups for th«* pur
pose of securing comfortable quarters
for the winter. Hotels boarding houses
and the homes of private residents are
being engaged for the session. At the
Locbiel Hotel will be found the leaders
of the Quayites, while the headquarters
of the Business Men s League and the
chief insurgent leaders will be at the
Commonwealth. Colonel James M.
GaSfey and the Democratic managers
will be found at the Bolton.
This winter many prominent men of
both houses will occupy furnished
homes which they have leased for the
session. Among them are Senators C.
L. Magee, David Martin. J. Henry
Cochran. William Flinn, W. C Sprout
and others. Another innovation this
winter is the leasing of famished house

It is expected that the Senatorial
caucus will be held on the evening of
New Year s Day. but the maiority of
lawmakers will probably arrive on the
last day of December. Both sides are
still full of confidence and while defec
tions are admitted by botd. the claims
are not so pronounced in either camp
as they were immediately after the
election It is evidently the purpose of
the leaders to keep their converts under
cover for the present. Nobody will
deny that it is a close fight with many
The carpenters and other artisans are
rapidlv executing a change in the ar
rangement of the Senate chamber for
the comfort of the gentlemen of the up
per branch of the Legislature this
winter. Thev are changing the location
of the President's chair to the north side'
of the chamber, exactly opposite its
former position, and the newspaper men
will occupy galleries which are being
constructed above and on each side of
the presiding officer. Elevated tiers of
seats are also ljeing placed in the public
gallery, which will face the President.
The Senators will all have a front seat.
Senate Librarian Miller will have no
difficulty whatever in arranging the
seating to suit the Senators, inasmuch
as they will sit at a single row of desks
arrarged somewhat in the shape of a
horseshoe, with the chair of the presid
ing officer at the open end of the shoe
Each Senator will have a clear view of
the President as well as of his associ
ates. Senator Grady of Philadelphia is
the father of this plan.
The chief clerk s desk will be immedi
ately in front of the dais upon which
the "President sits, but on a level with
the desks of the members, so that the
clerks will not obstruct the view of any
member when addressing the Chair. No
one will be admitted to the floor during
sessions. A reception room is being
fitted up for the public, where the visi
tor may send his card to the Senator,
and meet him. It is a radical change
from former nsage. and it remains to IK;
seen whether the present idea of ex
clusiveness will obtain thronghout the
session. The halls of the Senate and
House are being put in readiness for the
"The Evening Journal'' of Albany,
lately, published a table showing the
vote for President at the recent election.
"The Journal' states that the figures
are official, having come from the Sec
retaries of State, and says: "McKin
ley's total vote is 7,212,420, a gain of
100,013 over 1896. Bryan's vote is 6,350,
875, a loss of 158.177 over 1896. Mc-
Kinley's plurality is 861,645. a gain of
259,000 over 1896. Brj an's vote in the

A dispatch from Washington, dated
last Saturday,said three Senators from
Western Pennsylvania—Messrs Emery
of Mercer county, Williams of Butler
and Cummings of Warren —were in the
city today in consultation with the
Quay men. They said they came here
merely for the purpose o£« sightseeing.
This is Senator's Etnerv s first visit to
the capital. It is significant, however,
that their visit coincides with the effort,
the Quay men are making to assure
themselves that all the Senators they
claim will support Snyder for President,
and whether those that are known to be
taithful to the Quay interests c»nnot
suggest some way for assuring the elec
tion of the Quay candidate. It is said
that many more members of the As
sembly will find it convenient and de
sirable to visit the national capital be
fore going to Harrisburg. The Quay
people art! searching all the records they
can find to discover, if possible, if there
is a precedent for a Lieutenant, Gover
nor voting when there is a tie on a ques
tion of organization. The assiduity of
their search is so great that the infer
ence that a tie is as good as they expect
is not a violent one."

of $ J'K»,o') ),0').) is about the name a-i the
Nicaragua canal it would serve a mti'-h
gre.iter traffic and contribute far more
to the prosperity of the United States.
This is true; but the point which is
missed both by these comments and the
engineers' report is that the canal which
would serve all purposes between the
lakes and ocean will cost far less thin
There is not a lake port into which a
vessel drawing 30 feet of water can
enter. The majority of them exclude
steamers of 20-feet draft Moreover,
steamers of that deep draft are not
suited to navigation through long lines
of canal. Canada is getting ahead of
the United States by building 14-foot
canals. If the United States should
build 16-foot waterways it would put
the advantage on its side.
The salient fact is, therefore, that for
the cost of the Nicaragua canal the
United States could build such canals
as are needed from the lakes to the
ocean, from the upper Ohio to the lower
lakes, and from the upper Mississippi
to the upper lakes, thus com pleting the
grandest chain of internai navigation in
the world. When that was done it
would still have some money left to
