Wabhington, D. C.f Jan. 18,1803. ?
Republican lukewarmness was about \
the meet notable feature of the debate i
which preceded the passage of the '
Nicaragua Canal bill by the House. !
They did not dare to come out squarely 1
and oppose the bill nor to vote against '.
it when the vote was taken, but they
talked platitudes, the substance of
which was that it was best not to rush
into the matter too fast uad that we
ought to do some dickering with the
agent of the Panama Canal Company,
who arrived in Washington. this week
and submitted an offer to sell out for
$40,000,000. This does not indicate
speedy action on the bill by the Senate,
unless publio opinion makes things un
comfortable for thoso Senators who try
to delay action under a pretense of
dickering With the Panama agent.
The less dickering there is with any
of the Panama crowd, the less mud
there will be upon Senatorial reputa
tions. One of the best of the numer
ous short speeches made in the House
debate was that of Representative
Richardson, of Ala., who said: "The
States of the South will be the greatest
beneficiaries of the Nicaragua Canal,
and none greater than the State of
Alabama. It is an increased commerce
and trade that the South wants. Give
us the Nicaragua Canal and the sharo
of the trade of the Orient that we are
entitled to, and twenty million bales
of cotton raised in the South will not
be a surplus, and 5 cent cotton will be
come a memory of the past, while 12
eenc cotton will come to our farmers to
The Democratic House caucus which
was to have been held yesterday was
postponed on account of the illness of
Representative Richardson, of Tenn.,
the Democratic floor leader and chair
man of the caucus.
The Philippine tariff bill has been
reported to the Senate and an attempt
to Jam it through as it passed the Honse
will be made. This will be resisted by
all of the Democrats and some of the
Republicans, and a lively tight is ex
More bankers' legislation is contem
plated by the Republicans in Congress,
although to an unprejudiced mind they
already have the soft side of every
financial law on the statute books.
Representative Pagsley, of New York,
introduced a bill this week providing
for the incorporation under Federal
law of clearing houses, and giving to
one clearing honoe in each 3 t?te au
thority to issue currency to the extent 1
of 75 per cent of its appraised value, '
which shall be receivable at par by any
bank that is a member of a clearing
house. The advocates of this bill, and i
they include all the big bankers, say ,
that it merely changes the clearing
house certificates into currency. To a '
man up a tree that seems a rather big
change. In fact, it is about the change I
that would be secured by changing the <
security for a debt from private parties :
to the United States government. 1
Mr. Roosevelt attempted to.jolly 1
Rear Admiral Schley into agreeing to i
accept the report of the Court of In- i
quiry, and not only failed but had.to )
promise that he would receive and .
consider Schley's appeal from that re- i
port. This appeal will be prepared i

and presented in a few weeks, proba
bly soon after Schley re tarns from his
trip to the South. What action Mr.
Kooaovolt wiii take on the appeal is
not altogether certain. He has got a
better idea of the sentiment of the
country than he had, and he may con
clude that it will be better to ait down
on a member of his cabinet than to
appear before the country as a sano
tioncr of the persecution of a brave
officer. At any rate, if he joins in
Schley's persecution he will erect an
obstacle in his own path to future po
litical preferment that he can never
get over. Although it is pretty wc*l
understood that Speaker xleudcrsou
will not allow any Scbiey bill or reso
lution to get befor? the House in away
to be voted upon, a number of new
ones have been introduced, among
them a resolution b) Gen. Hooker, of
Miss., tendering the t innks of Congress
to Schley for his Santiago victory.
Gen. Hooker tried \o get a promise
from Speaker Hendereon that his reso
lution should be votai upon, but fail
ed. The order haa V>en given that no
legislation affecting 8chley shall be
allowed to get to a vote, which would
mean speedy justice.
Senator Morgan's resolution, which
was adopted by the Senate, may pro
duce some sensational developments.
It authorizes the committee on an
Intoroceanio Canal, of which Senator
Morgan ia chairman, to inquire into
the relations alleged to exist between
the trans-continental railroad com
Itanies of the United States and
Canada and the Panama Canal Com
pany. It is well known that
these railroads bave been acting
with the Panam*. Canal Company
in its various schemes to delay
legislation for the construction of the
Nicaragua Canal and believed that
tLf y have furnished a Bhare of the con
siderable amounts of money spent and
being spent by the Panama lobby in
Washington. Senator Morgan will get
at the facts, if anybody can, and he
will not be afraid to make them public
no matter who they may injure. Speak
ing of the matters to be investigated,
from a strictly business point of view,
Senator Morgan said, just before the
Senate voted on his resolution: "It is
the most wicked monopoly that ever
existed, and has already cost the peo
?de of the Pacific Coast millions of dol
It has been hinted at various times
that Senator Hauna was opposed to the
Nicaragua Canal. This week he show
ed his nand, and he is opposed to the
Nicaragua Canal, he pretends, for
purely business reasons. He is talking
up the old Darien route, which in
volves the cutting of a tunnel more
than six mileB long through a mountain
of solid granite, and which was not
Bven seriously considered by the ex
gsrts who compose the Isthmian Canal
ommission, because of its great cost.
Now, Mr. Hanna trots the scheme out,
and with a straight face professes to
believe it the best and cheapest route.
This classes him beyond the shadow
of a doubt with the obstructionists.
Representative Swan son, of Va., took
a fall out of Representative Qrosvenor,
of Ohio, when the latter tried to have
Eun with him by referring to the num
ber of Democratic leaders and asking
Eor the real leader, in order that he
might go gunning for him. Mr. Swan
son replied: "Well, we may be a little
