WASHINGTON. April t-rr-nk Pierce,

over for coni"ratlon next Saturday.
Testimony regarding tha twenty-four
mining letters aaid to hava been found in
Glavis' effects In Seattle, was finally con
cluded today. This testimony has been
introduced as an impeachment of G'avla
It has occupied much time.
Mlaeral Expert Testifies.
Alfred H. Brooks, mineral expert of the
Geographical survey, was on tha stand
when adjournment was taken yesterday.
Mr. Brooks strongly favora tha opening
of the Alaskan cval f elds and deolares the
territory is retrogressing as a result t-t
ti'i government policy of withholding the
Attorney Brandeis postponed further

Olavis effects at Seattle.
eilavia claims the discovery of tha let
ters in his box was a "frame up." Testi
mony Introduced yesterday showed that a
search had been under way for tha lettera
for four months prior to their discovery.
Tha search had been begun long before an
investigation cf Mr. Ballinger bad been
Glavla Box Oaeaed.
Before going into public session the cojn
mutee opened the famous Olavis box from
Seattle and Andrew Chrtsteosen explained

Mr. Brooks continued his testimony. He
related that the Vnlted States controlled
from UloM per cent of tha world's visible
supply of coal and that at tne present rate
nf consumption it would require 4.911 years
to exhaust the supply in the United States.
The figures were arbitrary, the witness
raid. Figured on a basis of the increased
tine of coal In the future, at the same rate
e.f Increase of the last two or three years.
Mr. Brooks said It had been estimated that
the supply in the United State would be
exhausted in from 109 to 1 years. Some
where between the estimates of ISO and
too ytars, be declared, the truth was to be
"If the supply will last S.000 years we
don't need to bother about conservation
for 2.0G0 or 1.000 yeara." remarked Repre-t-entattve
Madison, "but If it will only last
sjO years, we are up against it."
Too Mack Alarm.
Mr. Brooks said ha thought there had
been too much alarm as to tha exhaustion
of the coal supply. Other factors of power
aie coming into general use and this in
tlir.a will decrease the use of coaL Im
proved methods of consumption also are re
filling in the decreased use of coal.
As a general proposition tha witness said
he favored the leasing of coal lands, but
he thought the Alaska fields were too far
easy from transportation to be employed
to advantage. lie thought such a price
should be put on the lands in Alaska, how
ever, as to prevent speculative holding of
ih property and require its being worked.
Mr. Brandeis wanted to know if the wit

that a man of G!avls' "undoubted ability."

of the Russian forces in the field,

entire population of this p-etty little old
Italian town, nesting amid groves of orange :
ar.d olive trees, gave Mr. and Mrs. Roose- I
velt a truly rema-kable welcome when they
arrived this evening from 'ienoa.
For days the residents have been decorat
ing in honor of the visit, and American
colors fluttered everywhere, from the muni
cial buildings, the houses in the streets
and the villas. Many of the decorations
of the poorer quarters were home-made ard
the Ingenuity displayed In their eomnoai
Uon was eloquent testimony of the deep
impression the comlr.g of the ex-president
of the United States had made.
Even the sisters In the neighboring con
vents displayed American flags on the
gates. Dead walls were covered with
posters bearing such inscriptions as "Roose
velt forever." "Long live Roosevelt," and
similar express ior.a of regard.
The municipal council at a special meet
ing today decided to confer the title on
Mr. Roosevelt of "honorary cltlien" and
to name the new Onore drive, which is
now under construction ana is the prkle or

of the United States, constituted himself
champion of the peace of the world and
during the Messina disaster, manifested his
own and the friendship of the great repub
lic, proclaiming this the bonds of fratern

When Mr. and Mrs. Roosevelt arrived,
not only was every man, woman and child
In the town maased around the station or
lining the streets, but thousands from the
neighboring communes bad come in to add
their enthusiasm to that of the, towns
people, which already was difficult to bold

After greeting Mlsa Carow, Mrs. Roose
velt's sister, at whose home, the Villa
Mome Calvarlo, they will spend a few
days, and tecelvlng the formal welcome of
the prefect and mayor, the party started
forward for the carriages. A band struck
up "Hail Columbia," and the crowd cheered
lustily. A group of school children In
white, bearing flowers, tried to march,
protected by naval cadets, but they were
prevented by the singing cheering throng.
GENOA. I April .-Colonel and Mrs.
Rosevelt had cause to be glad today that
the crowds encountered had forced them
to abandon their carriage drive yesterday,
for since morning rain haa fallen In tor-
