Opponent* to Repeal Measure Con
side Agreement Furnishes Them
New Ammunition.
Washington.—Free use of the Pana
ma canal by Colombian men-of-war,
troop ships and army and navy supply
vessels is proposed in the new treaty
between the United States and Colom
bia, signed at Bogota, to heal * th«
breach between the two countries
over the separation of Panama.
This was announced by Secretary
Bryan with the explanation that the
clause in the convention was identical
with the one in the Colombian treaty
negotiated and ratitied by the United
States senate, though never accepted
by Columbia.
Mr. Bryan's statement folliflved a
long conference at the State depart
ment with Senator O’Gorman, chair
man of the senate canals Committee,
which has under consideration the ad
ministration bill, repealing the clause
of the Panama canal act exempting
American coastwise shipping from I
canal toll6.
Gets New Ammunition.
Senator O’Gorman, who is leading
the democratic opposition to Presi
dent Wilson's repeal policy, went
back to the eapitol with new ammu
nition for his tight. He would not dis
cuss tlie subject, but other opponents ]
of exemption repeal pointed to the |
fact that Great Britain in '1909 had
agreed to preferential treatment for ]
Colombias' peculiar relation to the 1
canal as evidence that Great Britain j
and President Wilson now are putting ;
a new construction on the words “all
nations,” in the close of the Hay- i
Ptuncefote treaty, guaranteeing equal
treatmeut to the vessels ot' the ua- :
tions of the world using the canal.
Their claim is that these words were
not intended to apply to the United
States, the owner of the canal and :
they will urge the admission of Great
Britain in the Columbian matter as

tion that the governor wrenched her
wrist and arm and struck her with
his fist during an alleged altercation !
in his office.
The petition stated that Mrs. West,
with a woman companion, went to the
state house to get copies of letters
written to the governor in connection

ity of commissioner, has been the
head of the department of civil ad
ministration. Mr. Metcalfe returns

Electric Power for Long Pine.
Long Pine.—Much interest is cen
tered in a plan to dam Long Fine
creek and create electric power fcr
use in this city and other towns up j
and down the road. An engineer has
been looking over the ground with H.
M. Culberson, a well known local cap!- j
talist and promorer. If the plan is |
found feasible it is said a large amount j
of outside capital can be secured to 1
construct the dam and power plant, as 1
the neverending supply of water and i
the narrow walls of the canon render i
the undertaking comparatively easy.
University Place. Xeb—Citizens of
this place were thrown into a high
state of excitement .Monday when forty

inspecting the place where the explo- !
sive had teen, carted the entire con- j
signment to his office at the court j
house. Xo clue as to who took the I
dynamite to the shed has been discor- !
ered. but officers will be keyt on the !
case until they hunt down a clue or !
are compelled to giv*> uo.
But Little Reduction in Revenue.
Washington.—The Underwood-Sim- '
mons tariff act went into effect six
months ago and present indications
are that it will not reduce customs
revenue any more than was estimated
in congress at the time of passage.
According to the treasury’s March
statement, customs revenues amount
ed to about $26,000,000 which is about
Sl.500.0d0 less than the Payne-Aldrich
law produced in March. 1915. That
was a marked increase over February,
when revenues fell over flO.OOO.OOo!
compared to the same raoith of 19'^. ’ *

Virtue of Self-Expression.
If children are allowed to give vent

be infinitely more likely to blossom
out into helpful men and women in
