Repeal of Tolls
(By Associated Press)
Washington, April 9.-Hearings on
the Panama tolls exemption >'<>pcal bill
opened today before thc senate canals,
committee, but interul ia lia repeal
?fight was focused on the senate Itself,
where Senator Lodge, veteran repub
lican member of the foreign relations
committee held the attention. Qi vir
tually the entire membership and of
crowded galleries for more than two
hours, defending the position of Presi
dent Wilson in Insisting upon the pae
tsage of the repeal bill.
The senator Bpoko without a single
Interruption. He declared that, tn his
opinion, the right of the, United States
to exempt any of Its shipping from
tolls was unquestioned under strict
interpretation ot the treaty; but be
cause of the delicate position ip which
the country Ands Itself tn Its foreign*
relation?, urged noi-partisan support
of the president. At the conclusion of
Senator Lodge's address the galleries
broke Into applause and the vlce-presl
dent's gavel pounded several minutes
before order, was restored and the
warning given that Senate filles'-pro
hibited any display of approval or dis
approval from the gallery.
Senator Lodge was given the strict?
est attention by hts colleague.? on both
sides of tile chamber, and without re
aspect to their announced view? on the
I repeal struggll

Delay Appears Probable..
Before the canals committee, Sena
tors Norris and Thomas appeared 'to
discus their propositions, the session
msrklng the beginning of the fifteen
day public dlscusuton, decided upon
earlier in the week. It was, doubtful
ttonight Just what the program ot the
hearings would be for the nest few
days. Representatives Of tho commer
cial organisations in Pacific Costs cit
ies, and New Orleans, at whose request
the hearings were ordered have not
arrived, and several senators who
have submitted "substitutes for the
Sims repeal bill intimated tods/ they
had no .desire to defend their pro
posals before the committee. Conse
quently a delay to thwart the arrival
of the commercial.representatives ap
peared probable. '"
Senator Norris urged upon the Com
mittee his suggestion that while the
exemption clause be "repealed,.tbs tight
of the United sutes to make such
exemptions be asserted in the repeal
measure, and the president empowered
to arrange-for arbitration to the dis
pute on this point
Senator Thomas outlined big pisa to
throw open the canal to the free pas
sage of all commerce. He elaborated
this later tn the day lu the senate.
Debate on the repeal fight, which
bas occupied the senate virtually tae
entire week, although senators havo'
not been speaking directly to any bill,
promises to continue at intervals at
least until the committee reports' Ito
Senator J\e?yon announced during
the day that ha approved the sugges
IUoa of Former President Roosevelt
that i tho toi Jh question be arbitrated?
Senator Williams of Mississippi*
agreed that the question might well bo
arbitrated, and that arbitration would
satisfy the "nearer consequoncea"
spoken Of by President Wilson in bis
repeal message. He said, however,
that a canvas ot the senate a year ago
showed that two thirds of the renata
were not in favor of arbitration, ah4
so far art he had heard, only two;
aerators opposed to repeal sssscrtc?
Preldent Wilson todcj* said ho was)
more confident than ever ot the pane?
ag? of the repeal b-U ?a-* i?is.% witt
day bis confidence waa increased. Mr.
Wilson said the animus behind some
of the attacks on the MI! was obvious
but he did not go Into AeUlU. Such
antmus, bs said, often proved a boo uv*
arang. . _^
