chase of certain coal lands on the Island

Mr. Cooper took the floor to explain the
provision of the bill. He said that the

purchase of the coal landn would save the
government about $400.GOO annually.

Slayden (Tex.) on the ground that the
price asked was too high, and also that

Positions on I'tah Problem.
. WASHINGTON, Feb. -9. In presenting
petitions against Senator Reed Smoot.
signed by' thousands of wonrn of Cali
fornia and Colorado, Messrs. IVrklns and
Patterson took occasion today to define
tneir position on the protests against the
Utah senator. The .former said that re
ligious views should not be cursldered In
passing upon the qualifications of the
senator and that bis honesty and the at
tributes that command confidence and re
spect should be considered above all else.
Mr. Patterson thought there were great
constitutional questions to be considered
and said that these would govern h:
vote. The petitioners had requested theso
senators to make some remarks Jn present
ing the prayers.
Discussion of the pure food Mil occuDled
practically all of the day. The speakers
were Mr. Heyburn, who has charge of
the bill, Senator Foraker, wha presented
a number of amendments desired by liquor
Interests, Mr. Money, in fnvoi of his
substitute, and Mr. McCumber. An order
was made to devote time tomorrow and

ment under the ten-mlnuto rule and

When the senate convened today Mr.
Warren presented 6W letters :'tom railroa.l

session on the ground that It would land
to a reduction of wages.
Mr.' Perkins presented a petition against
Reed Smoot of Utah retaining his scat.
signed by several thousand wimcn of Call-'
forr.ia. The petitioner asked the 'Cali
fornia senator to accompany the petition
with a few remark defining hi position.
In carrying out thl request Mr. Perkln
said It was the duty of a senator to sit a
a Jul or on the conduct of a colleague and
that the chief qualifications to determine
the member' eligibility was that he
should be a good cltisen, an honest man, of
good Vhararter. possessing all the at
tributes that command the confidence and
respect of his fellow men. Whatever hi
private belief, aald Mr. Perkins, religious
mattera should have no weight In dis
qualifying a member from occupying the
high position of senator of the United
States. Mr. Perkins spoke arnlnst retrac
ing our steps to a period when religious
war devastated the earth. He said that
our government wa built on freedom f
conscience and unquestioned individuality
of expression concerning religious belief
and no action should be taken which would
In the slightest degree abridge this free
dom. Mr. Patteron presented a petition
against Mr. Smoot, signed by several thou
sand Colorado women, and aald that great
constitutional pueatlona were Involved, and
In casting bis vote he intended to be gov
erned by the constitutional rights of the
person agslnst whom the proceeding were
pending. ,

regarding labels on liquor packag'-. which
Mr. Heyburn aald was an efftvt to put
something Into the bill In n "sly way"
which ouM give some dealers an Im
proper advantage. This wa resented by
Mr. Foraker and he read letters from
dealers protesting against being required
to disclose the formula of a blended whisky
by printing It en the package. Mr.
McCumber replied that there was no such
requirement. ,
Mr. Foraker ln,ii-.i Un. tl, meantna
f the bill was not plain ihd enld that the
purpose of hi ' amendment wa to pro
vide merely for the use ot some general
word or words, such blended, vatted
or rectified, according to the character of
whisky In the package. He Insisted that
ny one word would tell as iv.uch as the
entire formula In warhlug the public that

the btraus of Panama." thnt Is, a water
way through which the largest vessels
could go with safety at uninterrupted high
speed. Botn the sea level canal and tne
proposed lock canal would be too narrow
una shallow to be called, with any truth
fulness, a strait or to have any properties
or a wide, deep water strip. Both of them
would be canais, pure and simple.
Cost aud Advantages.
Each' type hits certain disadvantages and
certa n advantages. But In my Judgment
me disadvantages are fewer and the ad
vantages very much greater In the case of
a lock canal substantially as proposed in
the papers forwarded herewith, and I call
especial attention to the fact that the chief
engineer, who will be mainly responsible
for the SUCet'HS Of thlK mivhlv nvlnnrlm,
feat, and therefore who has a peculiar per
sonal Interest in Judging aright, Is em
phatically and earnestly In favor of the
lock canal project and against the sea
level project.
A careful study of the reports acrm to
establish a strong probability that the fol
lowing are the facts: The sea level canal
would be slightly less exposed to dumage
in the event of war; that the running ex
penses, upsrt from the heavy cost of In
terest on the amount, employed to be built
would be less and for small shins the tlma
of transit would probably be less. On th
other hund the lock canal nt a level of
eighty feet or therenlwuts, would not cost
much more than half as much to build
and could be built in about half tho time.
wnne mere would he very much less risk
connected with building It, and for larga
ships the transit would be quicker, while,
taking Iflto account the interest on the
amount saved In building, l be actual cost
of maintenance would be less. After being .1 vtuuiu itv easier 10 enlarge the
lock canal than the sea level canal. More.
over, what has been actually demonstrated
in maaing ana operating tne great lock
canal, the Soo, a more Important factor
of truffle than the general aea level canal
the Sue, goes to-aupport the opinion of the
minority or ine board 01 consulting engi
neer and the majority of the canal eom-
mlrslon as to the superior safety, feasibility
and desirability of building a lock canal at
Pinna for Lock Caaal.
Tha law on our statute books seem to
contemplate a lock cunal. In my judgment
a lock canal, as herein recommended, la
advisable. If the congress directs that a
sea level canal be constructed Its direction
will, of course, he carried out. Otherwise
the canal will be built on substantially
the plan for a lock canal outlined In tha
acttmpanying papers, such changea being
msae as oeing necensary, including possi
bly the change recommended by the secre
tary of war as to the site of the dam on
the Pacific side.

Commissioner Anthony.
Attorney General Hadley and Assistant
Attorney General Lake appeared for the
tate, while Henry S. Priest, John D. John
son, 8. B. Eddy of Chicago and Frank
Hagerman of Kansaa City appeared for the
oil concerns.
A. G. Stlegerwald, traveling representa
tive of the F. O. Clark company ot Cleve
land, O., an Independent oil concern, was
the first witness. He was a willing wit
ness and aald that while he waa purchas
ing agent and traffic manager of the Re
public Oil company be gained hi knowl
edge of the method pursued by the Stand
ard OH company. He aald he had been In
the oil business since 1891, and from book
keeper for Schodeld, Shlrmer 4: ' Teagle of
Cleveland, O., he became general manager
for the Sclo Refining company. of Scio, O.,
which was controlled by Schofleld,
Shlrmer aV Teagle. In 1901 these interest
were transferred to a new corporation, the
Republic Oil company, and he wa made
purchasing agent and traffic manager of
the Republic Oil company and W. C. Tea
gle was vice president and general man
Wltnes aald he saw Teagle at 26 Broad
way several time and that Teagl Issued
the Instruction to the executive of the
Republic Oil company.
"Thee instructions were that the Re
public OH company waa to continue to so
licit the trade formerly controlled In Mis
souri by Schofleld. Shlrmer & Teagle. We
were told that there waa much dls'satlsfled
trade In Missouri and that we were to get
after this trade. Apparently we were to j
fight the Standard.
"In reality all of the money which we
made went Into the Standard treasury and
all of our report were made to Standard
headquarter In New Tork. Under the tur

face our dealings were on a most anilcal.Sj
bssis. We did not actually sell to custom
ers which the Standard was nbl to hold
and they did not come Int.. real competi
tion with us.
"The Republic till com puny bought nil
of Its oil from the Standard oil refineries
In Cleveland and IJma, O.. and in Pennsyl
vania." On cross-examination Mr. Stlegerwald
was asked:
"How about the Waters-Pierce Oil com
pany?" "That Is the seme a , the Standard Ol
company." was the answer.
"How do you know It Is?"
"It is generally understood among ol.
men," said Mr. Stlegerwald. "that the Re
public Oil. Standard Oil and Waters-Pie re
Oil companies divided Missouri Into three
districts and that one never Invades the
territory assigned to another."
