THE GREAT CANAL MUST GROW
A French Engineer Thinks Present
Plans Only a Step in the Right
New York, April 13. — Philippe
Itunau-Varilla, the French engineer,
who was at one time in charge of the
Panama canal and acted as the first
minister from the Republic of Pana
ma to this country, is in New Y'ork.
Runau Varilla still believes in the
"Strails of Panama," in other words
a wide, deep, sea level channel (from
ocean to ocean.
"Rut It will be a soure.e of im
mense satisfaction to me to see the
canal finished, even along tha lines
at present planned," he says. ‘‘I am
still confident, however, that the
'Straits of Panama’ will come. The
present phase of the looks is the first
step. There will be a time when the
canal is a perfectly level highway 500
feet wide at the bottom and 50 feel
deed at the lowest tide. So much
larger all the time are ships being
built that the time will come, within
ten years, when the need will arise
lor the sea level canal.”
Popular Election Bill Ready.
Washington,'April 13.—A bill pro
viding for popular election of United
Slates senators will be reported to the

leaders expect the bill will be rushed
through among the first of the party
Representative Mitchell III.
Topeka, April 13.—A telegram from
Washington said that A. C. Mitchell,
representative from the Second dis
trict, was very low, and that death
might be expected at any time. Mr.
Mitchell is suffering from ulcers of
the stomach and was only able to at
tend the opening session of congress.
Snowballs Saved the Town.
Seattle, Wash., April 13.—While
more than 20 business buildings were
destroyed in the recent lire which
wiped out the business section of
Idaitared, Alaska, there is no food
famine, as nearly all of the stocks of
supplies in the stores were removed
to places of safety. The lire took
place in a heavy snowstorm, and the
town being without a lire department,
residents fought the flames with snow.
Fight on Telephone Bill. .
Assertions that tlie telephone lobby
has spent large sums of money and
has been exerting undue influence to
force through the merger hills were
made to the governor when he gave a
hearing to members of the house on
the merger hill which finally passed,
introduced by Minor of bancaster.
There were several of these merger
hills listed, all of them giving the reg
ulation of telephone companies into
the hands of the state railway com
mission by defining them as common
carriers and providing for a physical
connection between the exchanges of
The Minor hill had the provision al
lowing mergers between Hell and In
dependent companies stricken out
when the hill was passed and sent to
the senate, but the senate put it back
again and sent the bill over for con
currence. The sentiment in the house
seemed to have been changed in llm
meantime and the bill as amended
went through. Grossman of Douglas,
Harrington of Rock and others assert
ed to the governor that the bill got
through as a result of pernicious lob
Kotouc of Richardson anti others
urged the governor to sign the bill,
giving as their reason the fact that
telephone companies are not naturally
capable of giving good service when
they are competing in the same terri
tory and that the railway commission
should he trusted to see that mergers
were made only tor the good of con
