Opposition to Appropriation
WASHINGTON, January 25. In the
house today there was a general debate
on the report of the committee on ag
riculture appropriating 238,000 for the
purchase and testing of new, rare and
uncommon seeds, bulbs, trees, shrubs
and vines, omitting the usual appropri
ation for the purchase of ordinary flow
er and garden seed for .free distribution.
Chandler of Mississippi charged that
the item in the preseut bill was the
work of a lobby composed of the seeds
men of the country and of effective
newspaper work. Said he could not go
back and look bis "dear old farmer
frieii.Js" in the face after tho increaso
of the salaries of congressmen if free
seeds were not to be iind. Mr. Scott
of Kansas in defending tho proposed
plan of distribution said that ns the
department of agriculture had suggest
ed the amendment he thought that the
government with the same propriety
might give lead poncils to people and
jack knives to boys as to give free
seeds. He said the press, the agricul
tural colleges and very largely the farm
journals were opposed to congressional
distribution of seeds.

KINGSTON, January 24 (delayed).
The lack of co-operation on the part of

tho work of extending relief, providing

which Governor Swettenham is severe

"His Excellency is still careening
about the city, poking his noso into
various concerns and attending to petty
details which his subordinate agents
ought to attend to. The result is that
when prominent officials call to consult

There is a total absence of any deliber

WASHINGTON, January 25. After
an oxtended conference at the White
House tonight it was decided to reject
the bid of Oliver & Bangs, who pro
posed to completo the construction of
the Panama canal for 6.75 per cent of
the total estimated cost, in so far as
Anson B. Bangs of Now York is con
cerned. While no official statement was
given out, it can be Mated that if Wil
liam J. Oliver of Knoxville, Tenn., can
enter into a satisfactory arrangoment
with some other contractor who is finan
cially responsible, ho will be given the
Tho fact that tho McArthur-Gillespie
company of New York, whose bid was
12.5 per cent, was represented at the
conference, leads many of the inter
ested parties to believe that a com
bination may bo formed between that
firm and Mr. Oliver. It is known that
the McArthur-Gillespie concern has con
vinced the president and Secretary Taft
of its financial responsibility and after
a thorough investigation the canal com
mission have expressed the satisfaction
that Mr. Oliver is able to carry out hU
end of the agreement.
Bangs Not Satisfactory
There would have been no question
as to awarding the contract had tho
credentials presented by Bangs been as
satisfactory as those of Oliver. The
question of rejecting all bids was dis
cussed at a cabinet meeting today and
this decision had ben-practically agreed
upon before tho conference tonight. If
arrangements are satisfactory to Oliver
he will probably bo given several days
in which to arrange an agreement with
tho McArthur-Gillespie company or
some other contractor who cau deposit
the required cash security. If Oliver
refuses to consider the contract after
tho rejection of Bangs, tho commission
will call for new bids.
Related to Gaynor
Bangs was contractor for ithe Soo
canal locks. He is president of the
Federal Construction company of New
York, which is capitalized at $2,000,000.
Bangs is a brother in law of John Gay
nor of Greene & Gaynor, who were im
plicated with Captain Carter in tho
Savannah harbor engineering frauds.
This fact, it is said, had no influence
with the canal commiSBton in relieving
Bangs as joint contractor.
Will Make Proposition
It was admitted by Oliver's repre
sentatives tonight that he will submit
a proposition to the McArthur-Gillespie
company to join in a proposal in place
of the old b'tls. It is said that a com
promise arrangement will bo consid
ered by the canal commission provided
Oliver succeeds in making arrangements
with McArthur and Gijlespie, to pay 9
per cent of the cost for construction.
