.* ISSUE AGAIN UP
Washington.—Final disposition of
lluscle Shoals will be hotly contested
in this congress. At the last session
the senate rejected Senator Under
wood's plan to turn this water power
over to private concerns that were
associated, it was charged, with the
General Electric Company and the
Morgan interests. The senate creat
ed a commission to study the question.
That commission is divided, and the
two reports are in the hands of the
president. It is said that the major
ity report includes the general prin
ciples of Senator Underwood's plan,
while the minority recommends leas
ing the property to private operators
if suitable terms can be obtained.
K this can not be done, government
operation to demonstrate the possibil
ities of the property is favored.
Washington.—In an attempt to con
vict Senator Wheeler of violation of
the general mine-leasing law, the de
partment of justice was forced to
acknowledge that the law was not vio
lated, but it hoped that the court's
construction of the law will make it
possible to convict the Montana sen
Friends of Senator Wheeler ask if
this does not sustain their claim that
the indictment is backed by a desire
to avenge the department of justice
for Wheeler's attacks on former At
torney General Daugherty Who
Spired the indictment?
