NO TREATY OBLIGATIONS
President of the United States Has
Begun in Earnest His Campaign for
the Fortification of the Great
World's Waterway-Banquet At
President Taft, Friday night, began
in earnest his campaign for the forti
ication oL the Panama canal. His-en
tire speech at the annual banquet- of
the Pennsylvania Society in New
York, was devoted to this subject.
He, hms high nopes tkat congress, -at
this session, will declare in his favor
and sppropriate $6,000,000 to begin
In the Senate, the President has
been told the sentiment for fortifica
tion is almost two to one. The House
seems pretty evenly divided, but not
aongr partisan lines. iMost of the
memers appear to have an open
mid, however. and are wiliing to be
convinced by the side that makes the
beter presentation of its case.
President Tari. wH1l bring all of his
influence to bear in favor of fortifica
In his speech tonight he said them
were absolutely no treaty obgilations
in the way of fortifying the canal;
that the United States had every right
and reason to protect what was pure
ly an American waterway.
The president said he yielded to no
man in his love of peace and hatred
of war. He said he hoped to submit
soon to the Senate arbitration treaties
of a broader nature than had ever
come before that body, or any other
legislative body of the world.
NEW ORLEANS C!IOSEN.
Southern City Win; Fight For Big
New Orleans wins her fight for the
big exposition to be held in celebra
tion of the opening of the Panama
canal in 1915. The House Committee
on Industrial Arts and Expositions, by
a vote of nine to six, favored th'e
Crescent City over San Francisco,
which has been a strong- contender
for the exposition. The fight between
the cities will be carried to -the floor
of the House, but, with the committee
behind New Orleans, her chances are
now infinitely better than ever before.
The New Orleans people are cenfident
the House will sustain the co. .iittee.
The committee, after deciding in
favor of New Orleans, named a sub
committee to draft a bil, embodying
the essential points ior which New
-Qrleans contended. The Government
w be committed to participation in
the ~osition, and $1,000,000 will be
approp ed for a Government dis
play, as a ., rter. How much more

WOULD GIVE LIFE TENURE
Bill Introduced By Burton In Regard
A bill by Senator Burton, of Ohio,
which is intended to g've a life teiure
of office to some 8,)0O republican post
masters of the first, second and third
class was introduced in Congress, the
measure providing that these posi
tions should be placed under the civil
service, and that appointments by 'the
President in fling vacancies need not
be made "with the advice and consent
of the Senate."
This daring attempt to sweep all
the good things off the pie counter
before the Democratic landslide of
1912, will be fought by the Democrats
to the last ditch. It is being supported
by Postmaster General Hitchcock,
who takes the high ground that it
will prevent the removal of good men
for insufficient reason. In a letter tc
Chairman Penrose, of the Senate com
mittee on postoffices and post roads,
the postmaster general says the bill
has the approval of President Taft.
