Seldom has a senator been accorded a
more attentive hearing than that given Mr.
Ktnna. The Panama route he considered,
much to be preferred to the Nicaragua
route as 1t provided an lnter-oceanic water
wav much shorter and one that could be
traversed at less expense than the Nica
ragua route. He maintained that the
Ccited States was to build the canal to
sccommodste the commerce of the world
and said that fart must be taken Into con
sideration. Mr. Mitchell urged that unless the Nica
ragua route was deiernilned upon definitely
by congress it would mean the Indefinite

of all canal 1 rein 1st ion. He insisted that

Mr. Hanna in his canal speech said the
American people having become accustomed
te the rapid transit of the railroads, now
demanded quicker transportation on tbe
seas. Tbe experimental stage had been
parsed, and tbe cuestlon presented was
that of the le&t route by which tbe canal
was to be constructed. Mr. Hanns said he
had shared at first in tbe common belief
that tbe Nicaragua route waa tbe only
cue to be considered. Tbe Tntted States
had been deterred from embarking on that
project and in the light of events the fates
seemed to him to hsve interfered to pre
vent us from making a mistake. The Pana

while that of Nicaragua was IBS miles in

world," said he. "We are to build a canal
for the commercial trade of the world, and
we owl take into account tbe business at

Mr. Hanna referred to the seismic1 dis
turbances In the canal region and sug
gested that tboee disturbances ought to
cause the American congress to pause and
consider the suggested dangers seriously.
He maintained that the cost of the Nic
aragua canal would be immensely greater
in point of construction and operation than
tbe Panama canal and said he was pre
pared to demonstrate thst the Nicaragua
canal could not be operated at nlcht. Mr.
Hanna said that in many respects the same
conditions applied to both the Nicaragua
and Panama canals.
Discussing the Spooner substitute, he de
nied empathically that it waa a subterfuge
Intended to delay and procrastinate.
Mr. Hanna, after speaking an hour and
a quarter, pleaded fatigue and, saying be
would continue tomorrow, yielded the floor
to Mr. Mitchell (Ore.), another member of
tbe lnteroceanic canal committee.
The Oregon senator declared that tbe con
struction of the canal was demanded by the
American people i a tone that could not be
misunderstood. He asserted that unless the
Hepburn bill were accepted it would mean
tbe indefinite postponement of any canal
legislation and tbe possible defeat of the
canal project. He maintained that the Nic

with the consideration of the anti-anarchy

Mr. Sibley was warmly applauded when
Mr. Loud of California opposed this bill. He
said he sympathised with the motives which
prompted the proposed legislation, but
nevertheless he believed congress waa about
to act upon impulse. If the matter went
over until the next eeasiaa he did not think
it would ever be heard of again. If he
could bring himself to believe that there

breasts of tbe men that tbe president of
the Vnlted States, at the suggestion of
tbe New Tork Board of Trade, may take
up the task of attempting to bring miner
and mine owner together.
There is a strong belief here that Presi

try to woik out a solution of the problem.
Mine workers about striae headquarters
feel that the great roal companies can
not turn a deaf ear to tbe thief magis

to step into the breaih it is not improb
able that the operators would recede from
the stand tbey have taken. Tbe miners,

The coal companies continue to lose en

so through fear of bod.ly harm. Reports

a large number of these men to give up
their employment ai ibe mines in and
about Olyphant. where Ui Delaware A- Hud

keeping its steam plants in operation.
The march was the result of a meeting

this morning, the marchers intercepting ths
men going to the day shift or returning
home from the night's work. Thet. were
takes in tow by pickets and persuaded to
meet the leaders of the marchers, who
finally got tbe men to Join their rank.
There was no attempt at violence. The
company expected aome move of this kind,
but it special policemen were wholly in
adequate to block the plans of the march-
The Lackawanna company also suffered
the loss of its steam men at its Brisbane,
