Supports Borah in His Ef
fort to Get More Money
for Reclamation Work.
"Washington, D. C, Jan. 8. Senator
Borah's plan for pushing to 'completion
all of the government's irrigation proj
ects, so as to bring immediate relief to
settlers on the reclaimed lands of the
west, has -won the endorsement of pres
ident Taft. The senator, as a result, is
greatly encouraged in his campaign to
place the reclamation work ou a new
and sound financial basis.
The senator calledat the white house
at the invitation of president Taft.
Mr. Borah told the president of the
bill he has introduced providing for a
bond issue of 30,000,000 'for the finan
ing and completion at once of 27 exist
ing .reclamation undertakings. He de
scribed the urgent need of bringing the
entire work to a speedy conclusion ou
account of the hundreds of settlers who
have taken up homesteads in the re-
claimed areas and now are facing the
possibility of waiting years before
water can be brought to thelrland. The
president expressed the utmost concern
over this situation", which was placed
in a new light by the senator's state
ments. Explains Opposition to Bill.
Mr. Borah dnformed the president that
the opposition that so far has developed
to his bill arisesfrom the reluctance to
authorize additional bond issues. A
good many memoers oi congress iavor j
the issuance of certificates of Indebted- I
ness against individual projects. The
senator strongly opposes the certifi
cates, which, he maintains will be of
doubtful value and difficult to market
compared with bonds.
Since this talk president Taft has
told western senators who were inter
ested in the reclamation work that he
will recommend in his special message
to congressipn conservation which wllL
be sent to the capitol on Monday of next
week, that congress authorize a loan of
$30,000,000, to be floated either as short
term bonds or certificates of Indebted
ness to secure the necessary money to
complete the existing reclamation pro
jects. The money is to be repaid to the
government from the proceds received
from the sale of reclaimed lands.

Tokio, Japan, Jan. S. Leading newspapers tomorrow will disapprove of
the acceptance by Japan of secretary Knox's proposition for a neutralization

he was served with an order to appear
in the United States court there January

in the United States. Paulhan already
had been served on his arrival with pa
pers in a suit oi the Wright brothers,
alleging an infringement of the Wright
patents on flexible wings bygfthe four
machines he had with him.
Paulhan did not allow the service of
the summons to delay his departure for
Los Angeles, however, and stated that
when the action comes up he would be
represented by his counsel, Clarence J.
Shearn, and that he would take such
steps as he deemed necessary to protect
his rights and permit him to fly his ma
chines in this country.
Paulhan's four aeroplanes two
Bleriots and two Farmans are now on i
their way to Los Angeles by fast ex- ,
press, and it is expected that they will
reach there today or Sunday. As soon j
as they arrive Paulhan's squad of
French mechanlscians, assisted by as j
many more mechanlscians as are neccs- I
sary, will get to work assembling the
various parts and setting the machines
up, ready for the series of flights that j
Paulhan and his colleagues are to make.

unmistakable signs of a great tempest
within the Republican party, with a
ramification which some of the most

There is only one conclusion upon

there is a great fight on. hand,, one
which the president has sought to avoid
