PRE51|EtNT1S REBUKED
By Republican Senators on a Resolu
tion Endorsing Hi$ Course In- the
the Brownsville Affair.
The aiti-administration senatoes on
the republican side are jubilant over
the result, of their rebuke . aduiniister
ed to the president Tuosday, says a
Washiington special. They have passel
sh'i Foraker resolution providing for
an L'igiry at BIownsv.illo,. and are
hugging 'th'emselyes lfn d ligl.t. B y
tuiriilg down' th1 )resblutio is of Mal
:1or, of 1iida,.y and Culbers'on o
TO'as, which both lonilitt'to endo"se
the president's action in the Browns.
vIlle affair, the relmiilicans have prac
tically stated that they d'o not en
ror'o that Aqtil1, slid ,th,t the. (its
rilrge was wIthout consfitutional au
thority.
Lho democrAts, :vith the exception
of -Til,lman atnd B3lackhtirn, sustainel
the lprosideit throughout. Blackburn,
the floor leader of the democrats, ol.
Monday, expressed himself satisfied
Witl te ,Foraker: redittion, and to
l consistent he held to that positifo
throutghout the balloting Tuesday af
ternooI.
The resolution of Senator Mallory
deelured; that the president's action
was "vitli n the scope of his authprity
and Ad$wer, and the proper xgrc[se
ther"eof. The Motion to table this res
olution was carried by a vote of 42
to 2".
Senator Culberson's resolution stat
ed that "the president was authorized
by law, t'nd justified by the facts 1U
the (lischat ge without honor."
This was also voted down by
ye-a ~ and nay vote. The republican re
calci rants had summoned up th'eli
courage, they had forgotten the shad
ow of the big stick, and they refuse'
to vote their approval of the actior
of 'ihe'dore Roosevelt.
*No one who knows the man call

Regardless of what action was talc
en on the Foraker resolution provid
irg for- an investigatlon into the facts
in which inquiry the Ohio senator ad
n:lts the question of constitutional au
thority, is Intricately interwoven, thi
president has declared that he wil
stand on his order until the star
fall, and that no one else can su

In the course of the debate the ven
erable Senator Pettus of Alabama paid
a frank and sincere tribute to his col
league, Senatoj 1organ, as ain illu5
tfatioit o t133 in' s4aA. f nan who
enltee'' the' Iiu11i sei\vfcd, {saciilceing;
his plersumtl business and personal in
terests and his outside pursuits to de
-vote his time and talents and energy
to the goa ernment in legislative halls
deserved some recognition.
He said Senator Morgan had served
thirty years; that he had not accumu
lated a fortune in that time, but that
the people of Alabama were proud of
him just the same and loved him
because he had not grown rich in
tho. United States senate. He thought
the increase asked was small enough,
in view of the $15,000 or $20,000 year
,y income, which,en.ator Morgais.ad
sacri-iced -for so.;'llanay. years in or"
der to remain inr tbe;si.natd;.The i
cideit was a ifiqit' feilture f,. the

Sanator Money of Mississippi voted
for the measure and said if he had
$750,000,000 per year to disburse he
. would no' as a business propositiOa,
give ab, .iuto powdr-. to disburset'it.
. into the hands of men whose services
- were only worth $5,000 a year.
A number of speeches for and
I against the measure were made, the
s principal ones being delivered by Se.n
ator Berry of Arkansas, wVtho opposed)
It, and Senator Tillman, who favored
its passage.
.Senator Tillman, saying that he had
just been elected to six mvcre years
s of service, would vote for the in
crease, not because h would get more
t money, but because he believed it was
right. He wuld rather have voted for
C it last year before his re-election. It

1 HIRTY-TWO MILLIONS
Have Been Spent So Far in Canal
Work, Says Rotirfng Chairman
Shonts in Banquet Speech.
Theodore P. Shouts, who on \Wedl
nteiday resigned the chairmnalship of
the istlhinlan canal commission, was
the guest of honor in Kansas City on
Thursday evening at the monthly din
nor of the Knife and Fork Q1ub, and
dl1"ied an iintereshting itddYes touch
itg h') Panana Q al.
"Thie cre,anvq pood,' decitred -4r
Shl:>nts, "has come to an end, and
the period of active construction has
iettn. As to the nanner in which
the creative task has been performed
wo- are content to let the facts speak
tor themlselves."
In closing Mr. Shonts quoted as
follows frot President R;o:sevelt 5
mlessage, written after the chief exec
utive returned from the isthmus:
"The wisdom of the canal manage
ident ha: been shbwn in nothiing more
clearly than ill tile way. in Whicli tke
foundations have beenlaid.''
Mr. Shonts denied that his resigna
tion of the chairnmanshi) had result
ed from any disagrement with Pros
idetlt i'ucsoveit, or, any mlunber of the
comln;son,' and deelared .that the be1t
of relation-s existed eI)ctween himself
and all his ca.al associates.

weork he said:
"In Utli$ )rel minary worlf, we have:

manently from the isthmus. That is
the supreme achievement. For four
teen montis there has not been a
single case of this terror of the troll
ies. The stegomyla mosquito of which
the extreme period of life is three
iminths, and which is the bearer of
the yellow fever germ, has been al
most thrown out of business.
"So far as general health condi
tions are. concerned I can give you
a stronger evidence of their favor

that among about 6,000 white Aneri
