COMMITTEE READY FOR WORK
Senators Prepared to . Take Cs Any
Line of Canal Inqnlry
WASHINGTON. Doc. 18.-That the senate
committee on Interoceanlo canals' Is pre
pared to take up any sort of an Investiga
tion of canal affairs that may be do
manded by any member of the committee
was asserted today by Senator Klttredge
of South Dakota, chairman of the com
mittee. Thus far there have been no demands
upon the committee, and as there baa not
been a meeting at the present session of
congress It cannot be ascertained what ac
tion will be taken. "It has been the policy
of the senate committee," said Mr. Kit
tredge today, "to call witnesses at any
lime a demafld Is made by any member of
.the committee, and I purpose to continue
that policy." The demand. If It oomee, prob
ably will originate with democratic mem
bers. An Investigating resolution was offered
In the house by Representative Ralney of
Illinois, which Is said to have been offered
at the suggestion of the democratic na
tional committee followtflg the publication
In certain "democratic and Independent
newspapers of a story that Americans may
have profited by the sale of the canal
property to the United States. Senator Cul
berson, chairman of the minority caucus
of the senate, was intimately connected
with the management Ot the democratic na
tional campaign and Is a member of the
senate canal committee, but he has not
yet taken cognizance of the houso resolution.
