Continued From First Pag.
ama project have become very busy of
late, owing to reports that nave been
made from time to time during the
summer and fall of friction, extrava-
incompetence and general wrtfng
eadedness on the part of the canal
management, and the danger is great
that congress may undertake .to stop
work, inaugurate a set of futile but
time-consuming investigations, and
thus play again into the hands of the
transcontinental railway pool.
The president knows that congress
must be asked for certain canal legis
lation this winter, especiallv for addi
tional appropriations, and it is his fear
that this request may be made the ex
cuse for a reopening of the question
with delay as the real obiect in view
Rather than have this done, it is be
lieved that he would cheerfully add tr
his own responsibilities and personally
accept full responsibility for carrying
the work forward.
The real trouble at Panama thus far
has been too many bosses and divided
responsibility. By placing the work in
the president's hands, and giving him
a free rein, progress would be insured
and the expectations of the world met.
It mav turn out that this is the best
way out of the present difficulties, for
these difficulties seem to be almost en
Railroad Bate Bill.
Foremost in interest of all questions
coming before congress is the railroad
rate question. The senate committee
on interstate commerce, which has the
question in hand at present, will be
pretty evenly divided in its report
Should the president or his opponent*
get a majority of the committee, that
ma-joritv will probably not be larger
than one vote.
The house of representatives will
pass the administration bill whenever
the time seems to be right to do so
There will be no trouble whatever in
But the senate it will be diftercnt
That body, true as ever to its capital
istic leanings, will onlvjjass the admin
istration measure after a protracted
struggle, and it may not do so even
then. No guesses are being made a?
to what will happen, but at this time
the president's opponents in the ?enate
are possessed of a confidence that is
at least suggestive.
The issue between the plain peoplo
and the financial interests is plainlv
drawn this struggle, and it will be
worth much to American libeity and
.-justice to have the battle go in favor
of the president. Failure will make
more certain than before a government
ownership presidential ticket in 1908
with a tremendously large following
It is so easy for disinterested outsider?
to see the inevitable drift of events,
and the dangers that may follew fast
upon a railroad victory, that the won
der is widespread that the railway cor
porations have the courage to force the
fight. This rate question is one of the
most important questions that have
ever come before an American congres*
that is, greatest in its potentialities
either for good or for evil, as the ques
tion may be decided in the senate.
Control of Insurance.
The president will make another is
sue between the plain people and cor
porate greed in his recommendation for
federal control of insurance. Here
too, the senate will be the stumblmp
block. The house of representatives
will promptly pass any bill which has
the approval of the constitutional law
yers of that body, and is in the inter
est ofi'Sotfftd T5ubnc "policy, but nobody
can tell what the senate will do. That
it will do its best to defeat such legis
lation is well understood, even before
the question has formally come up be
fore it, but that it can maintain ite
position of opposition in the face of
an aroused public sentiment, many be
lieve will be out ef the question.
It ought to be kept well in mind that
even the senate cannot hold out in op
position to the wishes of the people, if
public sentiment will only bestir itself.
Let a public awakening come to the
country at large similar to that which
shook Missouri to its foundations last
year, and worked a revolution in Penn
sylvania last month, and the senate
would be compelled to yield.
The corporate interests of the coun
try, as represented in the senate, have
grown bold to the point of daring only
because of the indifference of the peo
ple at large, and thus to a large degree
the people themselves are to blame for
senate indifference to public wants. If
these same people want railroad-rate
legislation, and say so as the people said
certain things in the e&ctiQns last
month, they will get itno matter how
senators-may feel personally about it.
The only possibility of rate legislation
of the kind that the president wants
lies in such an awakening as is here
The Statehood Question.
The statehood question is largely one
of practical politicswhether it will be
wise, -as a poltieal move, to increase the
senatorial representation from the
sparsely Settled portions of the west,
thus diminishing the importance* of
senatorial representation from the
thickly settled portions east of the Mis
souri river. It is a matter of political
strategy, and it will be settled on a
political basis. If the republicans, now
in control of both houses of congress,
think it will be better to admit two
states now than four states after a
while, two states will be admitted. And
that is about all there is to the ques
Obviously, this question, altho purely
political, means a- good deal to the
country at large, for with new states
will come new votes in the electoral col
lego, and possibly the deciding votes in
close presidential contests. The ques
tion of the admission of new states is
always an important one, and it is the
belief here that congress has not usu
ally been careful enough in handling it.
The upper half of the national legis
lative body is already out of all pro
portion, on a population basis, and the
admission of Arizona and New Mexico
as a single state would only make the
disproportion more marked.
Of course, no opposition could be
made to the admission of Oklahoma and
Indian Territory, for they have met all
statehood requirements as to weath,
population, etc., in a satisfactory man
ner. With the other two territories,
however, this is not the case.
Tariff and Deficit.
The tariff and the deficit are bound
up together., and yet congress seems de
termined to discuss the one without any
reference to the other. The deficit, ac
cording to well-authenticated reports,
will be met by reduced appropriations
if possible and if not met, it will be
so reduced as to( stop .the cry for re
vision of the tariff. The trimming of
appropriations is sit best but a tern*
porary expedient of doubtful wisdom,
but .apparently it is the only alterna
tive left for the "atandpat" crowd
that seems to be running things in both
The Smoot Case.
Senator Smoot presents a moral issue.
If one concedes to him personally all
rectitude of conduct and purity of life,
it is still a fact that he has winked
at violations of the antipolygamy law
in his Mormon associates in Utah, anl
thus made himself morally culpable.
The issue that his presence in the sen
ate raises is of much more significance

are not parallel. Boberts was openly
a polygamist, and brought Mrs. Eobercs
No. 5 to Washington with him. Smoot
has but the one wife.
Congress will find enough to do to
keep it busy all winter and spring, and
perhaps a part of the summer. The
questions, for the most part, are of un
usual importance, and call for the exer
cise of a higher and broader statesman
ship than has of late been typicnl of
the American congress as a whole.
