I DEMOCRATS AGAINST IT

WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. Opposition
of Democratic senators to Prcsidont
Tzt'a plan of patting Col. Gcorpo W.
Goethals, builder of the Panama canal,
at tie head of tbo civil government of
tho zone, took such proportions today
thai omo of Mr. Tafl's advisers urged
him jq forego tho plan and leave tbo
creation, of the new zono government
to his successor, President-elect WiUon.
' Some who talked with tho president
early ia tho day were convinced that
lo would canvass the situation further
'before abandoning his plan. Others in
close touch with the president were
poeltivo that, out of consideration for
Colonel Goethals, whom ho dood not
wish to involvo in a political dispute,
io would give up tho. idea, and that
Colonel Goethals immediately after ap
poaring before tho congressional com
mittco formulating appropriations for
fortifications of the canal, would return
to his work.
H Civil Service Order.
Ono feature of tho plan, however, if
Colonel Goothnls is not put at tho head
of the zone government, is to place all
employees on tho canu work under civil
service by the president's executive or
dor. A few omployocs on tho isthmus
already are in tho civil service, but tho
creat 'number of canal workers havo
Wen appointed by tho isthmian canal
fl The attitude of the Democratic sena-
tors h that the present canul commis
si non should not bo displaced and disor
gauized until tbo canal is completed.
"Tbo bill authorizing tho president
to orjjanizo a civil government for the
Hj canal zono could never have become a
H law but for tbo assuranco that thcro
would bo no premature action," said
Senator Ifoko Smith of Georgia. "We
accepted this assuranco as meaning
H that the commission be allowed to con-
tinuo its labor until construction should
lie finished and tho water running."
H Would Honor Goethals.
H The Democrats further lake tho posi-
Hon that tho services of nil tho mom
hrrs nf tho commission still aro needed
and they contend that to provide for
nloncl Goethals and summarily dis
znhi all other commissioners would be
an unfair discrimination. Generally
H thoy express admiration for Colonel
Goothnlfl, and Senator Smith wcut so far

Bailey Quotes Hamilton.
The first portion of Senator Bailey's

writings of Alexander Hamilton, princi

through which Hamilton. Just after the
formation of the government, carried op
his discussion of the principles upon

who participated in tho formation of the
constitution and the organization of the
government to show that they had nevr
intended that the republican form or gov

"This is a republic democracy." he said,
and cited again opinions of men ldeiullicd
with history to prove that a "represen

would not quote from lawyers because

"How often havo wo seen men roar

Senator Bailey declared that no more

"They say that representative govern
ment has broken down In our govern
ment," said Senator Bailey. "If It were
true. It would almost Justify a. revision.
But I maintain It is not true. I main
tain that the government is more rep
resentative of the pcoplo today than ever
before in the history of the republic.
"There is a criticism, but it la of quite
a different character. Tho real crit
