Mr. Hillard said he had nothing to do

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19.-Proponents
of federal control of water powor tights,
led by Glfford Pinchot, former chief for
ester: Henry L. Stimson, former secre
tary of war, and Walter -I Fisher and
James It. Garfield, former secretaries ot
tho Interior, won a victory today In the
national conservation congress here In
tho first test of strength on the para
mount Issue of tho assembly.
By a vote ot 434 to 134 a motion to re
fer to the resolutions committee that
portion of the rciort of tho committee
on waterways was voted down and tho
report subsequently adopted Yvlthout n
roll call. Tho test of strength canio
when, as a substitute for a- motion by
Mr. Stimson to adopt tho unanimous re
port, E. T. Brlant bf Tennessee, cham
pioning the cause of state control ot
water rights, moved referring the report
to the committee. Tho vote followed a
day of lively debate, In which tho Issue
clearly defined was federal or stato con
trol of waterway development In tha
Poller Nt Finally Determined.
The result did not finally determine
the policy, however, as divergent reports
from the committee on waterways are
now In tho hands of the resolutions com
mit too to bo reported upon tomorrow.
Tho majority of' the committee, led by
Prof. George F.Bwan, submitted a re
port proposing that the states bo given
a voice In the granting of water power
Glfford Pinchot Mr. Stimson and Jo
soph N. Teal of Oregon offered minority
views urging strict federal control of all
water rights, with compensation to tho
government under certain conditions for
franchise privileges. The unanimously
adopted report referred only to certain
general principles upon which all could
agree and .tho subject was thrown open
for discussion early In the day upon mo
tion of Mr. Stimson to adopt this part
of tho report.
Both sides In the debate yielded for a
rote late in tho day when Mr. Bryant
urged that the whole matter should go
to tho resolution committee. Tho result
was so overwhelmingly one-sided that the
Pinchot following claimed the report of
the minority of the waterways commit
tee evontuully would be adopted.
