Washington, .Inn. 2S. Senator Mor
gun, clinlnnun of the Senate Coniutlt
tco on Inter-Ocennlc Canals, will re
turn from Alabama the latter part of
this week, when a meeting of the cont
rol tteo will bo called to nrrango a pro
gram for the conduct in tho Senate of
the bill for the construction or tho
Nicaragua Canal. Senator Harris of
Kansas, the second member of tho
commltttec, looks for tho prompt pas
sago of the bill through tho Senate.
Discussing tho subject tonight, Mr.
I notice that some of the friends of
the canal lmvo taken alarm at tho ac
tion of the IIoiibo Commlttteo In re
ducing the nppproprlatlon for the
prosecution of this work to $10,000,000.
No mnn who knows anything of my
records on this (juration can doubt my
friendship for the Isthmian Canal, and
1 wish to say that tho reduction of this
appropriation does not necessarily
militate against the prosecution of this
great work. As u mntter of fact it
would be Impossible during the first
year or two to expend more than ?10,
000,000 annually. Of course. It would
be within the power of a future Con
gress to stop such nppproprlatlons, Just
as It would bo within tho power of n
future Congress to stop tho expendi
ture of what remained of the total ap
propriation it we appropriated It all
outright. On that subject, however. I
wish to emphasize this point: I.ct this
bill be enacted and tho United States
(lovcrnmentoncetuin up the first bit of
cm tli, and the American people would
not tolerate anything that looked like
a cessation of tno work. There need,
be no alarm about the appropriations;
they will be made as regular as the an
nual nppproprlatlons for tho improc
ment of the Mississippi river, which Is
under this same continuous contract
"Is it tine," the Senator was asked,
"that tlie Huntington Interests which
fought the bill so bitterly in the past
are now favorable to the construction
of the canal as reported by some mem
bers of Congress." The Senator ans
wered: "All 1 know of that is what I have
seen in the papers. I have personally
witnessed no evidence of u chango of
hemt on tho part of tho Interests that
repiehi'iit tho Southern I'nclllc Ilnll
road. That road and tho people who
control It have fought tho canal piop
osltlou so bitterly that I should be In
clined to view this announced change
of attltudo with some suspicion. It
would be pleasant to know that these
peoplo realize that tuoy cannot stent
tho current of popular demand, but I
am not prepared to bellcvo all I hear in
that direction, '
"Thero hnR hern a great dral of talk
In Congress recently about ship sub
sidies. Tho Ametlcan peoplo ought to
know that one of tho greatest ship sub
sidies that can be granted mid one of
the best inducements to tho building
tip of a great American merchant ma
rine. In tho construction of this canal,
which will extend our coastwise trade
enormously. Tho canal will simply
extend our coast line. With that canal
cut through, American lines of coast
wise steamers can begin at San Juan,
l'orto IMco, work over to New York
and lloston, ply down the co-tst to the
Gulf portB, pass through the canal up
the Pacific Coast to Sun Francisco,
Oregon and Washington ports, and
then to Honolulu.
Every shipmaster, every man engag
ed in me iiuiniing or vessels, every
seaman, every workman In our ship
yards, every business man who has to
pay transportation charges and every
consumer In tho whole, United States
Is vitally interested in tlutt question,
for It means to him Increased business,
more work and cheaper commodities.
If this Government Is to maintain the
Philippines as a possession, and that
scorns to bo tho Government's policy,
then the canal becomes a military ne
cessity for reasons that did not, pos
sibly, exist four years ago. 1 look for
a voto overwhelmingly in favor of Its
construction in both Houses of Con
gress." When asked If ho thought objections
would bo Interposed by either Great
ltrltalu, on account of tho Clayton-llul-wer
treaty, or by Costa Hlca or Nica
ragua, Mr. Harris said:
"I antlclpato no trouble- on that
score, and I have endeavored to look
Into this plutso of the question ns thor
ougly ns possible. I am certain, front
all that I can hear, tho Great Britain
will not invoku the Clnyton-Ilulwor
treaty as a possible bar to our going
ahead witli this canal, British com
merce would bo aided vastly by tho
work and Great Britain knows sho
can never build tho canal or have u
voice In it. I have likewise tho best of
reasons for saying that Costa nica and
Nicaragua will extend u friendly hand
to this Government and negotlnto tho
proper sort of treaty with us While
wo would not nor could not enter Into
any alllanco with thoso States, it goes
without saying that with an American
canal through their territory, the
United States would stand ready tit all
times as agnlnst nny enemy of thoso
States to maintain their Independence.
Tho canal would glvo theso two sntnll
nations a standing which alone they
could not maintain."
Senator Harris' confidence In the
friendly attitude of the two Central
American governments Is probably duo
to personal Information which he does
not give out. It is known, however,
.lint when President Iglcslas ot Costa
illca was In this country Senator Ilur
rls had n long conference with '.ilm on
tho canal Btibject nijd was fnvorably
Impressed with what that ruler told
him respecting his own feelings In the
matter and the sentiments of the peo
plo of Costa Hlca and Nicaragua.
The Isthmian Canal bill will prob
ably not be called up In the Senate un
til after the 15th of next mouth, upon
which day tho voto Is to be taken on
tho Currency bill. There will probably
bo few speeches, because the proposi
tion has beccn freely discussed dur
ing the paBt.
MISSIONARY CAPTAIN DEAD.
San I'rauclsco, .Ian. 30. One of the
best known captpalns In tho Southern
Seas lost ills llfo on the front yester
day. Captain Henty Wohler of the
missionary schooner I.a Croix dtt Slid
(Southern Cross) was asphyxiated In
tho lodging honso nt 4S East street,
anil although he was taken to the har
bor hospital as soon as possible, he
had not even a lighting chance for life.
Drs. Dorr and Davis made n most care
ful examination of tho body, but there
was not a trace of life.
Captain Wlhlcr arrived hero from
Tahiti on tho French mall boat City of
Papceto on the 23d Inst. Ho was ac
companied by Paul Welle and threo na
tive Tahitlans who were to mnn the
I.a Croix dti Slid. The vessel had been
contracted for by the missionaries who
work among the Marquesas, Caroline
nnd Tahiti group and when tho news
reached Papeete that Matthew Tur
ner, tho builder, wns ready to deliver
her to an accredited agent
Captain Wohler was sent hero to bring
her down to the Islands. On his nr
rlvol here Captain Wohler went to
live ut 13 East street, in order to be
near his schooner.
On Sunday he was around the fiont
with Paul Welle and lie then stated to
some friends thnt he was going to
start for Tahiti next Thursday. Early
In the evening ho went to bed, and
upon retlilng he must have turned out
the gas and turned It on again. Tho
only lllumlnnnt In Tahiti Is coal oil,
and ns Captain Wohler lias not been
away from the Southern Seas for many
yeais he had probably forgotten all
he ever knew about the deadly carbon
monoxide. Ho lenves four children in
Tahiti to mourn ills loss. Captain
Wohler was the pilot of tho United
State Fish Commission's schooned Al
batross during her cruise among the
Islands of the Southern Seas.
