TO WIN FIGHT
ON HYDRO POWER
Western and Southern Repre
sentatives Pressing for Leg
islation to Unlock the Re
sources of Their States.
Washington, June 30. Western
ind southern senators and represen
tatives pressing for -water power
legislation to unlock the resources
of their .states, now expect to win
their fight in congress during the
next few weeks after years of effort.
Senator Jones, of Washington,
chairman of the commerce commit
tee, author of one of the pending
water power bills in the senate and
who will take charge of legislation
on the floor, announced before leav
ing for Washington, that "after a
long delay congress is about to act."
The house is half way through a
bill by Representative Esch of Wis
consin, chairman of the house com-

merce committee, and will resume
consideration Monday. It is iden
tical in terms with the measure
which passed both house and senate
during the last congress, and has
reached the stage of a conference
report, which also was accepted by
the house, but which failed in the
senate on account of a filibuster.
Same Measures in Senate.
Measures practically the same
have been introduced in the senate
by Senators Bankhead of Alabama
and Walsh of Montana. Senator
Shields has introduced another bill,
the same as twice was passed by
the senate in previous congresses,
and Senator Jones also has intro
duced a bill much the same as the
one now under consideration in the
house. Still another bill embodying
the ideas of Gifford Pinchot has
been introduced by Senator Lenroot
of Wisconsin. The support of the
western members seem to be cen
tering around the Esch and Jones
bills with the exception that they
will be consolidated. The Jones bill
has been referred to the public lands
commission of which Senator Smoot
of Utah is chairman, and he has ap
pointed a sub-committee of five of
that committee to work with a sub
committee of the commerce com
mittee having in hand the Jones bill.
Out of the combination,' the sup
porters of waterpower legislation
expect to get a measure, which being
the same as was approved by con
gress at the last session, will still be
endorsed by Secretaries Lane, Hous
ton and Baker, who compose the
inter-departmental water power
The situation' on water power
legislation at this stage reflects the
long contest between those waiting
to develop water powers on the one
hand to get a law, under which they
believe they can secure investment
of capital, and conservatism advo
cates on the other, who are con
tending for restrictions to preserve
the interests of the government.
The bill, which failed at the last
congress, seemed to be satisfactory
to both elements.
"The Esch bill is now before the
house," said Senator Jones, "and
will be passed within a day or so.
The subcommittee, which has been
appointed by the commerce and pub
lic land committees of the senate
to deal with the water power ques
tions, are about to take up their
work and will energetically push it
"When permitted to utilize the
giant forces now wasting in the fall
ing waters of the Rocky, Sierra Ne
vada, Cascade, Bitter Root and
other mountain ranges, within their
borders, the eleven far western
states, of which my own state of
Washington is one, will show mar
velous growth in wealth and popu
lation. But water power develop
ment is a question of national, not
sectional importance. Great water
powers located in 22 states in the
east and south as well as the far
west have been held back from de-i
velopment awaiting further federal
legislation. But now, after long de
lay, congress is about to act."

YANK FORCES GET
READY TO LEAVE
FOR U. S. SHORES
Coblenz, June 30. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Home-going activi
ties began in earnest among the
troops in the area occupied by
American forces as soon as the news
that the treaty of peace had been
signed was received..
In Luxemburg the fifth division
was prepared to entrain as soon as
final orders came and in the Bridge
head area where the first and sec
ond divisions and part of the third
have been concentrated since last
week, when ' it appeared the Ger
mans might balk at th treaty, prep
arations began immediately for mov
ing back to quarters in villages and
This movement will require only
two or three days then the first,
second and third divisions will
make themselves comfortable while
awaiting orders which eventually
take them home. According to
present plans the fifth division will
begin moving toward Brest, Tues
day and the fourth division or Sun
The date for the departure of the
third division is expected to follow
It is understood that both the first
and second divisions will be out of
Germany before August 1, but much
will depend on transportation fa
cilities of the railways. It is re
ported here if the American flag is
to remain on the Rhine with a regi
ment ot possibly a smaller unit, as
part of the permanent army of oc
cupation, this unit will consist of
volunteers who were recruited m
America and who recently arrived
Details of the ceremony attending
the signing of the treaty were re
ceived at third army headquarters
by special signal corps men and then
relayed throughout the area, where
the troops were eagerly awaiting the

Flying War Flag Comes

Stockholm, June 30. (By the As
sociated Press.) The German sub
marine chaser, U-21, flying the Ger
man war flag and commanded by
Captain Ruckteshel, arrived at Got
tenborg Thursday. The occupants
of the chaser were without pass
ports and are under police sur
veillance. Captain Ruckteshel did not di
vulge the destination of the craft
upon leaving Kiel. When the boat
reached the open sea he told the
crew he would not return, as the
honor and fortune of Germany had
been lost in the peace treaty.
Envoys Leave France
Paris, June 30. The departure of
Dr. Hermann Mueller and Dr. Bell
and about SO other members of the
German delegation from Versailles
Saturday night was virtually un
noticed. The Germans were sent in 15
automobiles by a roundabout route
to Noisy-Le-Rot, where they board
ed their train at 9 o'clock.
The Germans were accompanied
as far as Cologne by French and
Italian officers. The Germans took
their leave of the French officers at
Versailles with punctilious polite
ness. Herr Haniel von Haimhausen,
Herr Leinert and Herr Dunker are
among the 58 Germans who will re
main at Versailles for a short time.
Will Advise Turks to
Return to Constantinople
Paris, June 30. A note will be
sent the Turkish delegation by the
council of four addressing the mem
bers to return to Constantinople.
The message will say there is no
reason to believe any agreement can
be reached in the near future be
cause of the ' great difference be
tween the demands of Turkey and
the concessions the allies are will
ing to grant.
