(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, March 9. (Special.)
The aenate baa dtaposed of the irrigation
bill. What will become of tbe meaaure in
the bouse Is aa "pen question. It Is evi
dent that Speaker Henderaon Is not par
ticularly favorable to tbe Irrigation policy,
notwithstanding ths fact tbat both political
parties committed tberneelvee to It In their
laat national platforms. There Is, however.
decided determination upon the. part of
the western and northwestern men to force
to the house to take action and no one has
been more Industrious tewarde this end
than Represenatlve Francis O. Newlanda of
Nevada. In point of population Nevada la
the smallest state In the unlpn, but few
states, even among those ranking as the
first, are represented In the lower house of
congress by a more able, painstaking and
conscientious man than Mr. Newlanda. It
has not always been the largest states that
Lave had the ablest representation )n Wash
ington. For many years the state of Maine
outclaesed them all, that le, when tbat great
quartet. Reed, Dlngley, Boutelle and Mlllt
ken, filled the four seats assigned to Maine
In the lower bouse. Delaware haa aant men
like Bayard, Saulsbury and Oray to the
Mr. Newlanda undoubtedly haa a personal
interest In eecurtng irrigation legislation,
for no stats In the union will more greatly
benefit from the introduction of a national
policy of water atorage and distribution
that will Nevada. Then, too, it must be
remembered that no member repreaentlng
the arid and eeml-arld region had had auoh
a long period of continued aervioe as the
Nevada member. Nor baa anyone atudied
the subject. In all Its bearings In every
country of the old world which haa at
tempted Irrigation to the extent ef the In
vestigation made by Mr. Newlanda. Should
the house finally adopt the senate bill or
any similar measure, success will be due
largely to the efforts of the western men,
who formed a committee early in the cession
and who selected Senator Warren of Wy
oming for chairman and Mr. Newlanda for
secretary. This committee aucceeded in
bringing together the various Opposing ele
ments and It baa neglected ao opportunity
to Impress Its views upon Its colleagues. Bo
Well haa It carried on Its work that there
is toaay a ciear majority in me nouse la-
vorablo to the policy of irrigation.
Prohibitum of Lofcaylna;.
In tiptte of President Roosevelt's order
prohibiting employes of the departments
engaging la lobbying, a great deal of work
of thla sort la going on. , The most indus
trious persons during the last month have
been eome of the chiefs of divisions of tbe
scientific bureaua of the Agricultural de
partmcnt. Tbe malls have been literally
flooded during the laet week or two with
lettere from all sectlona of tbe country, urg
lng members to vote for larger approprla
tlone than the committee on agriculture
seems disposed to recommend. All these
letters evidently emanate from one source
and that Is the bureau of plaat Industry
In the department. It is natural that ex
perts employed In solentlflo bureaua ahould
uae every means available for Increasing
tbe scope of the work which they are
called upon to perform, but the plant in
duatry people are aaid to have exceeded the
limit. If all demanda of this kind should
receive attention It would take the entire
surplus to run the scientific bureaua of
the government for one year. As It Is,
the committee on agriculture has been ex
tremely liberal to these bureaus of tbe
Agricultural department and the money pro
vided will undoubtedly materially aid the
secretary In extending the inquiries, which
have thus far proved ef auoh enormous
value to tbe farmers ef the country.
Tbe action of the Colombian government
In the matter of the Panama canal haa
made It practically certain that the offer
of the French company will aot. be ac
cepted by congreaa. Bvldencee multiply to
Indicate that the Central American eoun
tries, through which ths eanal might be
run, look upon the United States' as a' gold
mine. Coeta Rloa and Nicaragua propose
to get a bite from Uncle 6em'e 'surplus
If they can, and the action of Colombia
was undoubtedly taken with the 'Idea of
dividing the 140,000,000, which the French
company aske - for its so-called assets.
Probably the complicatlene whlon have
arisen ' and tho developments' which have
been unearthed will reault ia nullifying the
action during the 'present session ef con
gress, in any event, tbe prospects for
canal legislation seem to grow dimmer,
t Demand for Pnbllo Bnlldlaaa.
..Some Idea ef - the demanda for public
buildings which are annually,, presented to
congress caa be gathered . from a remark
made by Supervising Architect Taylor, who
said: "Up to date I have bad 868 bills for
new public buildings submitted to me for
reports upon the necessity for them elnce
this congress assembled la December. This
umber does not lake Into account the bills
presented for addltlona to "publlo buildings
already constructed. There la one of thla
latter class," continued Mr. Taylor, "which
hae been occupied leas than a month and
it la already entirely too email for the
bualness of the postofflce In the town In
which it le altuated. I refer to the poet
office building In Beaumont, Tex. The postal
bualneae of Beaumont baa grown ao enorm
ously within the past few months that the
building waloa waa adequate for tho re
quire menta when designed ' la now alto
gether too small for the work which must
be done there." r ; .
What de yea think ef the. proposition
submitted to congress some years ago by
tbe late Senator Paddock of Nebraska for
a general law to provide publlo buildings
In all towna where the postal receipta reach
a certain figure T" Mr. Taylor was aaked.
"I think," he responded, "it would be a
good thing for congress to authorise a
commission consisting of the postmaster
general, ths secretary of the Interior, the
secretary of the treasury and the attorney
general, which ahould have Jurisdiction In
these matters. The commission should be
required to report from year to year to
congreaa which towns ought to be supplied
with public buildings. They are the cabinet
officers coming Into closeat contact with the
cltlee ef the United Btatea and are better
qualified to Judge aa to the advisability
ef providing buildings than any other offi
cials could be. I believe that It some auch
plan aa thie were adopted It would reault
la putting up bunding Just wlere they are
needed and where the government could
save money In the way of rents by erecting
SHIPPING AND ASSAULT BILLS
aaaldr Measare Will Divide Time
Saaaje ' with rroaldeatlal
WASHINGTON, March .-Tbe attention
will be divided again thla week between
the ship eubaidy bill and tbe bill providing
fee the pualshsasaV of- peraeae who assault
or kill tbe preeldent of tbe United States,
the former holding the place of unfinished
business and the latter coming In for eon-
etderatlon when there la no one prepared to
speak on the subsidy question. Among those
who have announced their Intention to
speak on the subsidy bill Is Senator Vest,
but the condition of bis health, which re
maina far from robust, may prevent his
addressing the senate. Senator Mallory
also will talk on this subject, but beyond
these no set addresses have been announced.
However, there undoubtedly will be a num
ber of short speeches on the bill. No pre
pared speeches on tbe presidential assault
bill have been announced, but there Is no
doubt the lawyers of the aenate will con
tinue to find more or less to say about It
whenever opportunity shall offer. At odd
times the cslendar will be taken np. Alto
gether, the week does not promise to be
an exciting one in the aenate.
DEFEAT OF BILL PREDICTED

WASHINGTON, March 8. The house this
week, after disposing of the bill to classify
the rural free delivery service and place
the carriers under ths contract system, will
devote Its attention to appropriation bills.
The poatofflce appropriation bill, which will
be taken up Bret, probably will require three
days. It will be followed by the river and

conclusion tbat tbe rural free delivery
