REVILES PANAMA COMPANY
Bt'nator Mitchell of Oregon Denotmoes En
terprise u a Stupendous Fraud.
RAPACIOUS SCHEME OF LEGISLATION
Warn Congr.. Hot to Entangle
Country In Edle Fight or Kill
Cnnal Propoaltlou by Adopt
ing Spooner Amendment.
WASHINGTON. June 7. In making
-holesale attack on the Panama canal
propoaltlon Mr. Mitchell of Oregon today
In tba aeuate declared th'.a enterprise to
he the moat rapacious scheme of legisla
tive corruption. Journalistic venality and
octal aud political exposure ever uncov
ered In any age or country. He vehemently
condemned the launching of this enterprise
as a stupendous gold brick scheme and de
nounced the Idea of the Vnlted SUtea lend
ing Its name to a concern "whose history
lor the last ten years had shocked the
enslbtUtlee of mankind." The Oregon
anator exoressed the opinion that the
adoption of the Spooner amendment would
have the effect of postponing any canal leg
Mr. Mitchell warned congress that no
better way could be found to defeat the
Construction of any canal than to adopt the
Cpooner amendment, as the Vnlted States
could have no connection with the Panama
route without becoming Involved In the In
trlcacles of the French courts, from which
It would find It Impossible to extricate It
elf. He declared that any connection this
country might have with the Panama prop-
oaltlon would result In the deQlement of
For Forest Beeerve.
At the conclusion of routine business in
the senate today Mr. Dejjew of New York
addressed the senate In advocacy of the bill
appropriating $10,000 for the purchase of
1,000,000 acres of land for a national forest
reserve In Virginia, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama aud Tenneaae.
Mr. Depew said the project was favored by
President Roosevelt and by the secretary
cf agriculture and federal action was Juatt
fled fully by public necessity.
, The senate then began the consideration
, of the measure commonly known aa the
lndon dock charges bill. Mr. Nelson, re
publican of Minnesota, In support of the
bill, said the charges made at the London
docks against American flour, principally,

Tbe bill, he said, was for tbe purpose of
protecting the American manufacturer, the
American producer and tbe American farm
er, which protection was needed all the
more since tbe formation of the shipping
combine by Mr. Morgan. As the situation
Is, said he, "the American shippers are in
tbe clutches of a devil fish of a monopoly,
from which we ought to pray every even
ing before going to bed to be delivered."
The bill was then laid aside.
Mr. Mitchell taklug up the canal questton.
handled without gloves the proposition to
build the canal by the Panama route, and
ncidentally the Spooner amendment. By
the adoption of this proposition, be said:
The United States would be tacking on
to one of the greatest frauds and pieces of
corruption known since the world began."
He could not' believe, he said, "that the
senate proposed to con elder seriously a
proposition which would involve the United
States In a legal controversy for a hundred
years. I want the senate to know the facts
nd to determine whether we really shall
take up this rotten concern across ths sea."
Mr. Mitchell expressed the opinion that
tbe enactment of tbe Spooner amendment
ould result in the postponement of the
beginning of the canal project as the presi
dent probably would have to make an lode-
pendent investigation of the subject before
he reached a decision. He urged that con
gress ought to accept the responsibility of
selecting the routes, and not turn that re-
ponsibillty over to the president.
He suggested the possibility that if the
United S'ates should adopt the Panama
route some other nation would construct
a canal by the Nicaragua route, thus cre
ating competition that would be disastrous
to the United States.
Most Rapacious Scheme In nistory
Mr. Mitchell denounced the idea that the
United States should lend its name to tbe
Panama enterprise whose history during
cne last ten years uad snocked the sens!
btllttes of mankind. He declared that it
was the "most rapacious scheme of legls
lative corruption, journallstlo venality and
social and political exposure ever uncovered
tu any age or country."
He asserted that the launching of the
Panama canal enterprise was "one of the
greatest farces ever witnessed on earth,
either in ancient or modern times." and
that the whole project was "one cf the most
stupendous gold brick game ever Imposed
upon a people."
Mr. Mitchell declared that by tbe Spooner
amendment aud the views of the minority
of the canal committee the United States
not only was invited to participate In a
gigantic lattery scheme but would be com
pelled by French law controlling the canal's
construction, to purchase in France all raw
materials entering into the canal.
He pointed out that the new Panama
Canal company bad entered Into obligations
to construct tbe canal and he Insisted ths
the United States, if it should purchase
the Panama Canal company's rights and
properties, would be tbe legatee of all obll
gaticns or ut French compsny, Including
those to the stockholders et tbe old Panama
canal company. In view of all the condl
tlons he did not think a wise man would
Invest $40,000,000 in a proposition of that
. In conclusion Mr. Mitchell declared that
ir cs were . casting about for a way to de
feat the construction of aa Isthmian canal
be could find so better way than by support
log tne Epoooer amendment. He was satis
fied the Panama canal proposition could
not be touched without defilement or even
looked at without loathing. It was, be said
a sink or Iniquity la which the United
States should not approach.

PARIS, June 7. France has passed
through a cabinet crisis and the Combes
ministry has been formed without a ripple
of excitement among the general public or
even in tbe lobbies of the chamber of depu
ties. Senator Combes was the first name
mentioned as a successor to M. Waldeck
Rousseau and Immediately after tbe let
ter's resignation as premier became official
and as soon as M. Brlsson announced that
he could not form a cabinet, a Combes
ministry became a certainty. As was in
evitable after the verdict of the country
and the unequivocal vote in the chamber
of deputies In the election of Bourgeois as
president the new cabinet was chosen al
most entirely from among the radicals, M.
Rouvler being the least advanced member
of it. Mm. Doumergu and Pelletan, repre
sent the radical socialists and M. Mougeot,
the minister of agriculture, represents the
radical left. M. Combes, Delcasse, Troull
lot, Valle, Chaumle and Maroujles are re
Personnel of Ministry.
The new cabinet la constituted as fol

The ministerial declaration will, further

Rousseau ministry, and ths policy of re

chairman of the committee of the law of

premiership. He is aa eloquent orator
and while UtUe known blmaclf outside of
parliamentary circles, he has selected his
principal colleagues from among the best
known and quallQed radical leaders. In
the section of M. Delcasse, Rouvler and
Chaumle, be counterbalanced tbe cabinet
with a moderate element that will guarantee
it against the adventurous fulfillment of the
drastic Innovations which occurred largely
In the electoral promises of several of the
new ministers. These promises, if carried
out, would heap a hundred millions on the
annual expenditure, whereas the policy de
nranded by the majority of the country and
promised in tbe ministerial declaration, is
one of serious retrenchment in order to
retrieve the already embarrassed financial

The presence of M. Rouvler who enters
the cabinet in the role of the savior of his
country's finanoe. is distinctly reassuring
although many politicians question whether
the divergent views of M. Rouvler and tbe
advanced radicals promises a long life for
the ministry. ,
The Temps says: The future will show
whether the understanding between M.
Rouvler and his colleagues will last and
suffice to restore the country to the calm
It needs and preserve and develop its pros

policy of sound finance is tbe beginning

policy of the ministry as outlined is a ne

brutal application of the law of associations
and the suppression of liberty of teaching.
We have serious reasons to believe the
ministry will not last three years, as did its

OFFICERS ARE INEFFICIENT
Oauitio Keport of the Committee on British
MANY WITHOUT ELEMENTARY EDUCATION
Inferior Men Permitted to Paaa Mas
ter, While Those with Signal
Ability Meet with No Sob.
LONDON, June 7. The report of the
committee on military education and train
ing, issued today, furnishes the strongest
official corroboration of tbe inefficiency
of tho officers of the British army. The
committee's report, which Is based on the
evidence of the officers themselves, from
the commander-in-chief downwards, fills
forty-eight printed pages with caustlo
criticism of the existing system.
The witnesses were unanimous in saying
that tbe Junior officers were lamentably
deficient in military knowledge, the desire
to acquire knowledge, and in seal.
The committee finds that the young
officers will not work unlsss comoelled to
do so, that keenness is out of fashion" and
that "it is not correct form." The com
mittee declares that many officers do not
possess an elementary education, and
plaintively protest that officers ought "at
least to be able to express themselves
clearly and concisely in tbetr own
language." Tbe report condemns tbe sys
tems of both Woolwich and Sandhurst,
where education la "far from satisfactory,
the Instructors having no inducement to
teach the cadets, still less to work."
With a view to diminishing tba expenses
of officers belonging to cavalry regiments.
the report recommends that polo tourna
ments, regimental coaches and tbe keep
ing of bounds be forbidden.
Perhaps the penultimate paragraph Is the
most Important of all. "ho long as
mediocrity is permitted to pass muster,"
ssys the committee, "ana signal aDiniy
meets with no substantial recognition, it
la useless to hope for any valuable results
from verbal amendments to tbe regulations.
Nothing but Inducements, in the shape of
certain reward for good work, either In
peace or war, can raise the standard of
knowledge through the commlsloned ranks "
Tbe committee, therefore, "recommends
an honest system of promotion by merit.
following upon tests honestly conducted and
brnestly reported upon."
The report plainly hints that officers can
hardly be expected to work so long as the
present system of advancement, through s
cial influence, Is lu vogue, or so long as
efficiency has nothing whatever to do with
ths selection of officers for desirable ap
pointments. The committee recommends, among other
things, that more commissions be offered to
the colonies, and that officers be compelled
to know either French or German.
YIELDS TO ALSACE-LORRAINE
Germany Abolishes Dictatorship Pro
vision, an Evidence of Mutual
BERLIN, June 7. The Imperial chan
cellor, Count von Buelow, Introduced a bill
In the Reichstag today abolishing the dic
tatorship paragraph In the Relchsland
(Alsace-Lorraine) fundamental laws.
After speaking of the necessity of the
paragraph In the past In consequence of
the expressed hope of Relchlanders that
France would reconquer the provinces the
chancellor said that. Emperor William and
the government, after mature considera
tion, were convinced that the extraordinary
powers conferred by the paragraph could be
safely dispensed with. It abolition con
stituted a recognition of the fact thst,
thanks to the strong position of ths em
pire among tbe powers and thanks to the
careful work of the provincial of tbe
Relchsland, It had baen found possible to
reconcile the Inhabitants of Alsace-Lorraine
to the new order of things and to
Inspire them with full confidence in their
connection with the empire. Tbe efforts
of tbe older generation to effect a separa
tion would find no adherents In the mass
of the population and ths Imperial govern
ment wished to requite confidence with
confidence. Germany never of her own
free will would acquiesce to a cession of
the Relschsland and he, the chancellor,
was convinced that AUace-Lorralne will
accept the gift now tendered with tbe ssme
feeling of German loyalty that animated
tbe rest of Germany.
