As soon as this function has been performed tho senato will return to its chamber and both bodies will resume their ordinary proceedings. ATTITUDE OF FRANCE NOT TO THEIR LIKING WASHINGTON. Feb. 7. American tar iff experts do not lv with complacency the probability that the French govern ment within the next year will put Into operation a revised tariff which, it Is be lieved, will have the effect of seriously discriminating against Imports Into France from tho United tSates. Tho condition of trade with Franco, It Is said, is had, even under tho present tariff. -Tho United Slates Ih compelled to pay tho maximum ralo on all of Its Importations, and that Is sufficient In many cases to ho practically prohibitive A verv pertinent fact Is the new French Canadian treaty. Under this, Canadu Is to receive all of the minimum rates of tho French tariff. This will bo sufficient to causo many American manufacturers to build factories across the Canadian line. So that their product may be sent to France, with the benefit of the low tariff. Government experts believe It abso lutely necessary that a. dual tariff bo arranged bv tho United Stales with France, and that not to provide for such a sv.slein, It is argued, will leave the United States helpless and weaponless In any commercial war.

I am sure this has impressed itself upon everyone of the board of visiting engineers as it lias upon me. "With reference to the type of ihc canal and the continuance of the pres ent plans, tho engineers promise that they will be able to hand mo their re port by the time we laud Jit New Or leans.'"'

During, his visit, which lusted ten days, Mr. Taft visited even- section of the canal. His inlluenco was exerted also to bring about a better feeling be tween various factions that have been opposing each other since the last election. Y. M. C. A.

SENATOR HUH ON JAPSiTUATIOH Nevada Solon Discnsses Matter That Is Now Agitating Coast. SAYS EASTERN PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT Race Question, He Says, Most Important One Before Country. WASHINGTON. Feb. 7. Senator Newlands of Nevada, in a statement to night, asserted that there should be broad national legislation covering the whole Japanese question. "Tho legislation proposed b.y tho Pa cific coast states, intended to meet cer tain phases of what constitutes a na tional peril, has boon opposed by the president as involving a violation of our treaty with Japan and imperiling her friendship," said Senator New lands. "While the western states will in all probability patriotically conclude, to kill such legislation, there is danger that their abandonment of such legislation may be misunderstood by the eastern states, whoso pcoplo aro unfamiliar with the oconomic anil social dangers attend ant upon Asiatic immigration, and that they my think that we acquiesce in tho view that tho grcnt question of na tional and domestic policy should bo turned over to the negotiation of dip lomats. No question involving Buck im portant considerations as race homo geneity and Democratic industrial pcaco can safely bo turned over to diplomacy. "There should bo broad national leg islation covering the wholo question, and thus nocessarily covering the parts of tho question which state legislation in the west seems to cover." Continuing, tho senator staled that tho Nevada legislature should, in his judgment, as a substitute for nil pend ing measures, adopt resolutions making the following declarations: Most Important Question. "That tho race question is now the most important question confronting tho nation, that already wo havo drifted regarding the black race into a condi tion which seriously suggests the with drawal of the political rights heretofore mistakenly granted tho inauguration of a humano national policy which, with, tho co-oporat-iou and the aid of tho southern stales, should rocoguize that the blacks aro a race of childron re quiring guidance, industrial training and the development of self-control and other measures intended to reduce the danger of the race complication, for merly sectional but now becoming na tional. "That confronting us on the Atlantic is Europe, with a. total population of 000.000,000 whito peoplo, whoso surplus seeks outlet on our soil; that we have found it difficult lo assimilato oven the immigrants of tho whito raco from that continent, and havo been obliged by law to carefully restrict such immi gration. Would Overcome Country. "The yellow and brown races, if un restricted, would overwhelmingly emi grate to our country of unrivaled re sources, of unlimited wealth, and of almost unlimited ability to support ad ditional population. Pre-eminent nmong these stand tho Japanese, strong, ag gressive and high spirited, qualities which tho American pooplo admire, but if given play on American soil would dovolop tho strongest form of raco an tagonism. "That history teaches that it is im possible to develop a homogeneous peo ple by tho juxtaposition of races differ ing in coliir upon the same soil; that under such conditions race tolerauco means an undesirable raco amalgama tion, and that raco intolerance means ultimate race war or tho reduction of one raco to servitude. National Law Needed. "That therefore our dut.y to our race and our institutions aud the mainten ance of friendship with races differing in color alike demand that we abandon the attomptcd adjustment of these questions by international treaty and pass a national law, to tako effect upon the expiration of existing trcatios, em phatically declaring that our country is open to whito immigration alone; that such immigration shall be restrict ed lo those of constitution, character and training that will ultimately fit them for American citizenship, and that other racos shall bo excluded from immigration except for purpose, travel and education." Senator Newlands adds Hint dignified legislative action of this kind could not lie made tho ground of offense by any nation affected; that Japan herself would be the-first, to lako similar ac tion were the integrity of her race and her institutions threatened; that the Tinted States had .always been friendlv lo Japan in her sfrugglo to maintain and protect herlerritorial and race integrity, and that such action was entirely consistent with absolute friend liness between the nations.

Now tho cases aro investigated only by special agentsj of tho interior department. 'It vvas brought out that Secretary Garfiold and tho attorney-general ha'd agreed to tako secret service men off of land fraud cases before Mr. Garfield had knowlodgo of tho proposed limita tion. Secretary Gnrfield said: Garfield's Statement. "Thcro was a forco under tho do-. partmcnt of justice that was doing world of which Iho land, offico had no in formation, and I found that they worn engaged upon cases upon which our own men were engaged, and thcro was over Japping of work, conflict and friction between -the two bodies of men." The hearing also brought out the fnett that the records show that tho only secrett service man "loaned or transferred" from tho treasury department to the in tenor department direct to investigate the land fraud cases. William J. Burns, has not been paid for his work. The transfer was made boforo Mr. Garfield became sccrotary. Tho soeretary doubt ed if spch a transfer was proper. 1 Mr. Garfield admitted that nlthough ! the limitation referred to prohibilcd the loaning of men in the secret servico I division of tho treasury department, if; jH did not prohibit the "borrowing" of in en from the new secret servico forco IH of tho department of justice.
