Representative Jiasulre announced today
that he had recommended A. V. Johnson

upon the merits of the candidates until
the lime had arrived for making my
recommendations to the department.
"After very careful analysis of all In
dorsements, together with my own per

with the candidates, and conscious of the
qualifications for this office and the pub
lic service, I have today recommended
A. V, Johnson for appointment as post

Representative Sloan Is developing Into
a "rough and ready" debater. .Today
Representative Walsh or Trenton,, one of
whose constituents Is President Wilson,
assailed tho republicans and progressives
for their criticism and opposition to the
president's advocacy of the repeal of the
free tolls section of the Panama canal
act, and wound up his diatribe by de
nouncing1 them as a lot of "chattering
Mr. Sloan, at the suggestion of those In
charge of the time against the Sims bill
unllmbered his rhetoric and his American
Ism by calling upon Mr. Walsh to take
back to his chief- (Mr. Wilson) as an
answer to the statement of the White
House Issued on March 5 (hat tolls exemp-.
Hon 'was not being debated elsewhere,
that It was now being debated by one of
tho only two bodies on earth that have
the right to debate and determine our
national and domestic rights.
Mr. Sloan called attention to the sec
j Tetary of state's approval of the rule
i, which shut off all amendment and com-
pelled members to vote for or against the
f proposition of our right to levy tolls leav
ing the wisdom of so doing a mlnorscon-
sldcratlon. Mr. Sloan said:
' "I have a great deal of admiration for
the dlstlngulshel secretary of state but
; I cannot go with him on this proposition
as it would Involve my being dragged
with him at the wheels of Lord Gray's
f triumphant diplomatic car,"

Referring to the activity of the post
master general ht 'quoted a house tele
phone page as saying "they are calling
the Fostornce department wire so much
they must be trying to carry this bill'
through by parcel post." I
Referring to Speaker Clark being 'in
danger of defeat because of the course he
has taken with the repeal bill Mr. Sloan
p "More danger existed than .when the

. "Must thf. speaker suffer, must he
politically die? Then 100,000,000 Americans
will know the reason why."
Mr. Sloan closed by describing his visit
to Panama, his climbing Mount Ancon,
his views toward the Atlantic over the
cource of .the, canal, the locks and the
fVlake on the Pacific. He then turne'd. to
old Panama, which had been despoiled
by the English pirate, Sir Henry Mor
gan, who was afterward knighted for
this and other acts, and then described
Panama built under the protection of the
United States, and measuring the
uchievements of the United States In
making tho canal, asked: "Aro we to
yield control of this great international'
waterway, of our own making, as tho
difference in value between ,the , hell
