REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Washington, Nov. 24. At the conclusion of Senator Morgan's seven-hour sieech to-day on the Isthmian Canal situation. In which he bitterly attacked President Roosevelt's policy. Senator Ilannn, who succeeds Mr. Morgan as chairman of the Canal Committee, rose to take direct issue in the matter of President McKlnley's po sition. Senator Hann said he wished to correct Mr. Morgan's statement that President McKinley had favored tho Nicaragua route. He said that from many personal conversations with the late President he could speak with authority he knew that ho favored no particular route. Ho wished all carefully investigated and was willing to stand by the report of a commission of responsible men. Senator Morgan Jumped to his feet quickly nnd insisted that public docu ments in which President McKinley was on record spoke louder and with more au thority than any statoment of private conversations. He said he had not the pleasure and honor of an Intimate per sonal and political acquaintance with tho late President, nnd, even if he had, would have preferred to quote him from hi3 written record, as there seemed to bo no responsibility attached to statements of private views. "Then, here and now, I will tnko tho re sponsibility bofore tho country of stating these vievrj," said Senator Hanna, and the incident closed. MORGAN'S SPEECH. Senator Morgan's speech, which Is re garded as the keynote of forthcoming Democratic attacks on tho President for his attitude toward tho present isthmian situation, is regarded as his last long ut terance on the canal question. He will have part In the opposition to the ratifica tion of the Panama Canal treaty, but will use no dilatory tactics and attempt no delay. Mr. Morgan declared early In his argu ment that. If Mr. McKinley had lived, the protocol with Nicaragua and 'Costa Rica would have been observed. "But he is dead," the Senator went on, "and a new Richmond pomes upon tho field and he seems not to feel the obligation of good faith when a more enticing field for the unique administration breaks upon the vision of this ambitious spirit." He declared that It was President Roose velt's ambition to havo all the glory of constructing the canal for his own ad ministration. "Has the President." ho asked, "any excuse for his failure to carry Into effect the agreement with Nicaragua and Costa Rica, unless It be resentment toward Co lombia and gratification of personal ambi tion, which the law deprives him of the further power to Indulge? Whatever the Incentive, he will fail to carry tho people with him in his wild and inexcusable raid" No plea of "reasons of state" would be acceptable, for, said he. "reasons of state are out of place In a Republic, and are regarded only as tho plea of a tyrant. In abandoning the McKinley policy, Mr. Morgan declared that the President had destroyed tho rights already acquired at much expense of time and effort. Ho declared that Colombia had levied blackmail to tho exttau of 17.000.000. and that, acting under the Instructions of the President, the Secretary of State had en tered Into an agreement that might make it possible to collect on the levy. Only tho eagerness or the ambition" of the President, he Bald, could have supplied tho fulcrum for this traction. ASKS PERMISSION TO SIT. At this point, and after having spoke for two hours, Mr. Morgan requested the privilege of his seat while he continued his delivery. There was no objection and the venerable Senator sat down, remark ing under h's breath as he did so "My eld limbs are getting as shaky under me as the Republican party must be In the presence of the truth." Mr. Morgan reviewed at length the Co lombian revoluUon of 1902, declaring that Marrpquln's triumph was due not to hl3 own prowess, but to the assistance of the United States. "All roads that the President travels," he said, "lead to tho Panama Canal, but some of his discreet friends should caution him not to burn the bridges behind him." That war had, he said, deserved the con demnation of all Christendom, because of the brutality of Marroquln's conduct, and yet, notwithstanding this conduct was such as would have done discredit to the bearer of a scalping knife or tomahawk, the United States wero the ally of that leader throughout the conflict. He re ferred especially to Marroquln's confisca tory decrees, and said that President Roosevelt must havo known of them. HOl'SR ADJOURXS TILL FHIDAY. Invited to Attend Louisiana Pni cliaae Celebration at Xvvr Orlenna. Washington, Nov. 24. When the House convened to-day Mr. Payne moved that when an adjournment is taken it bo until Friday.

The Speaker then had read an Invitation from the Governor of Louisiana to the members of the Houso to be present at the celebration of the one hundredth anniver sary of the transfer of the tract purchased by the United States of France.

DEMOCRATS CALL FOIl DOCUMENTS Will Enter Upon Prolonged and In tricate Dlncusslon of Panama. RETUDUC SPECIAL. Washington,. Nov. 24. Evidences of a Democratic plan to enter upon an Intricate discussion of tho Panama question were multiplied to-day In the Senate when sev eral requests for printing historic docu ments for the use of the Senate were In troduced. Ono of these was by Mr. Gorman, the minority leader, asking that the Presi dent's message of May 15, 1S.6, on affairs In Central America, bo printed as a public document. Fifteen hundred copies are asked for. with the reports In relation to the condition of affairs there, which ac companied the President's message. The resolution was agreed to. Mr. Culberson asked unanimous consent to have printed in the Congressional Rec ord, and as a public document, the corre spondence between the State Department and the British Foreign Office on the ques tion of neutrality in tho Civil War. He aaid the matter to which he referred cov ered pages 32 to 181, Inclusive, In the offi cial reports of the State Department on foreign relations. Mr. Cullom suggested the extract named was a rather lengthy one, and asked Mr. Culberson to be. content with having it printed as a public document. The Texan refused to accept tho sugges tion, and his .Illinois colleague objected on the plea of economy In printing. As objection to' unanimous consent was made, Mr. Culberson accepted the al ternative of having tho correspondence . f;r ..v ,.v ... ., -. . ARKANSAS HICK CULTURE STATIOX.

' WILL FLOOR GRAND Plan fo Cover bottom of Lagoons at Fnir With Cement Abandoned. DESIGNS FOR WORK DRAWN. Material fo Be Used Will Pre serve the Clearness of Wa ter in Spite of Nav igation. It has been decided by the Division of Works of the World's Fair to floor tho grand ba"dn and lagoons of tho Exposition with wood. The original plan to cover the bottom with cement has been abandoned, as It was found that timber would All all Uie requirements ns well and bo less ex pensive than cement. The area to be floored includes 712545 square feet, which Is ono of tho largest spaces pver covered by a single floor. De tail plans for the work havo been drawn. The actual construction, it Is said, will begin within tho next few weeks. Flooring the waterways was decided up on In order to eliminate the stirring up which would come to the clay bottoms from the propellers of the electric launches, spinning around within a few inches of the bottom. It is claimed tliat tho wooden floors will prcservo the clearness of the water in spite of the navigation. The waterways will be filled with filtered water, supplied from a huge filtering plant which the World's Fair will install for the purpose. All the water running over the cascades will also be filtered. According to the plans, the flooring will pun from the sides to tho center. A dip of about one foot In fitly feet, from the sides toward the center. Is provided so that the deepest water will be In tho cen tral channel. In the track of navigation. One-Inch yollow pine planks will be used, laid directly upon the clay bottom. To prevent the flooring from floating to the top, there will bo sunk into tho ground at regular Intervals, anchors forming a vertical stud, nt the bottom of which will be nailed, horizontally, a wooden cross, which will resist the upward strain caused by the buoyancy of the wood. Treatment of the bottoms of the la goons has been a source of curiosity to visitors. Canvas nnd cement were con sidered as materials for this work, but were abandoned lecause of the cost and because it li not necessary that the bot toms be water-tight. There is no lower level to which the water could escape. Plans for the treatment of the Itlver des Peres where It crosses the Pike, have also been completed. The Catlln tract, on which the Pike is located, was not at first included in the Exposition site, and it was overlooked In building the big subway which covers the Itlver des Peres in the grounds proper. The plans contemplate roofing over the stream to as to carry the level of the Pike from one side to the other. Four lines of Piles will be driven on either side. Tho gulley between the piles will be bridged over with heavy girders, upon which a floor of thick timber will be laid. WILL DEDICATE BUILDING WHEN WORK IS FINISHED.

WAGNER'S WIDOW LOSES LAWSUIT Federal Judge Decides That There Is No Legal Reason vWhy "Parsifal" Should 2sot Be Presented. (ew Tork, Nov. 2t Judge Lacombe, la the United States Circuit Court to-day, declined to grant the injunction asked for by Fraa Coslma Wagner and Siegfried Wagner, nelrs of the lata Richard Wax ner, restraining Manager Helnrich. Con rlcd from producing the dramatic festival play. "ParBtfal." In addition to ths many legal points presented by Gilbert Ray Hawes, repre senting: Frnu Wagner and her son. In support of his contention that Manager Conried's production In New Tork would be illegal, the lawyer appealed to the court to preserve the sacjed atmosphere with which the widow and son surround ed the composition, and prevent ita pro ductlon on any stage other than at Bay reuth. The composer himself, the lawyer ar gued, declined all offers for a license to produce "Parsifal" roads by the many managers of Europe, many of them repre senting royal and court theaters. Former Judge A. J. DIttenhoffer, repre senting Mr. Conrled. declared that ft great many of the sentimental claims made by Mr. Hawes were not founded up on fact, and showed by affidavits that ths great composer himself had parted with at least the publication rights of the play for a consideration of 77,000 German marks, to the firm of R. Shott's Sons, Mainze. The decision of Judge Lacombe insures the production of "Parsifal" scheduled by Manager Conricd for December 24 at ths Metropolitan Opera-house, with an all star cast. ORE OF DR. CUPID'S PRESCRIPTIOHS. That Love sometimes cures disease Is a fact that has recently been called to the attention of the public by a prominent physician and college professor. In soma nervous diseases of women, such as bya teila, this physician gives instances whera women were put in a pleasant frame of mind, were made happy by falling in love, ant m consequence were cured of their nervons troubles tbe weak, nervous sys tem toned and stimulated by little Dr. Cupid became strong and vigorous, at taott without their knowledge. Many a woman is nervous and irritable, feels drag ged down and worn oat, for no reason that he can thint of. She may be ever o much In love, but Dr. Cnpid fails to core her. In ninety -nine per cenL of these cases it it tb: womanly organism which requires attention; the weak back, dirry spells and black circles about the eyes, are only symptoms. Go to the source of the trouble and correct the irregularities, the drains on the womanly system and the other symptoms disappear. So sure of it is the World's Dispensary Medical Associa tion, proprietors of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, that they offer a $500 reward for women who cannot be cured of leucor. rhea, female weakness, prolapsus, or fall ing of tbe womb. All they ask is a fair ana reasonable trial of their means of cure. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets clear the complexion and sweeten the breath, they cleanse and regulate the stomccli, liver ana bowels and produce permanent benefit and do not re-act on the system.
