"Alabama Senator Declares Lie
Has Sought Strenuously to Ac
quire Glory of the Canal for
His Own Administration.
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.

to have printed in the Congressional Rec

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

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.

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. On is
