It was learned that the congress in all probability will adopt resolu? tions asking Congress to authorize the issurance of bonds. Today's sessions witnessed one or the most notable gatherings in the history of the congress. Leading figures in public industrial and commercial life of the nation >n dicated their interest in waterway Im? provements by their presence and par tic'pation in the proceedings.

Lyman, or Whitman College of Washington. Welcome to Capital. In extending the congress a cordial welcome to Washington, Vice Presi? dent Fairbanks said It was perfectly obvious that the mprovenient of our wa irways should be abreast of our industrial needs and national progress The time has arrived, he said, when we mus: give to the subject of ade? quate facilities a: a minimum cost, in? telligent and effective consideration. In discuss ng the cost of Improving American waterways the vice presi? dent sai;l that as much of the benen' to be derived from the expend! ures wowM be for the fgtwe, a reasonable* share of the amount should l?e provid? ed for by a bond i?sue so a- Justly and equitably to distribute the burden among ail the beneficiaries of the ex peodPare.

After proclaiming the American constitution the greatest instrument ever drawn Mr. Carnegie declared that there were many thugs that in? states coulj not possibly do; that if the general government had uo! the power under the constitution, th" people could make a new Constitu? tion. V.r. Carnegie declared it as hjg be 1 efthat there was not one in this coun? try, no matter how strict a constttu tioni.-ts he may be, who would object to a bill for the improvement of our waterways. Mr. Carnegie gave h s enthusiastic endorsement to the proposition for the bond issue. He endorse,! the scheme, he said, because the improve? ments of our waterways would give back to this country ten fold the ex? penditure, lie expressed the belter, however, that the utilization of our own waterways was of infinitely more Importance than the Panama canal and wished that our own waterways had been improved before the Pana? ma canal project ha,l been taken up. j Favors Drastic Measures. The advocacy by Governor Cham-j btTla n. of Oregon, of the defeat of senators and representatives who' have pledged themselves in favcr of; waterway improvements and who fail j 10 redeem their pledges, met with the; imposition of Representative Champ! Clark. ! The latter declared that Congress is not opposed to river and harbor improvements and never has been. To say so. he declared would be to assume that the Congress is com? posed of a job lot of political Idiots. Mayor Low Faid that ihe greatness of New York was due largely to the hu lding of the Erie canal. Governor Sanders, of lAMlslana, I spoke of the menacing effect of the floods of the Mississippi river upon his State and said it was time the general government should hear its share of the expense in maintaining the levee system. Laboring Man Interested. Samuel Gompers said the laboring I man was vitally interested in water? way expansion, and hoped the time would come when more attention I would be devoted to auch waterways schemes than to the building of arsenals and navy yards.
