Majority Sena tor- were understood to contemplate a conference late this we**k to deter mine when the* bonus hill should lie taken up in the* Senate, and particu larly whether the pending tariff bill should he laid aside in its favor.

The JYesident, it was aeleled. neither opposes nor supports the* offer of Henry Eorel for lease and purchase of the Muscle Shoals propertie*s, feel ing that in this matter, as in the whole question, it is a matter on which Congress shoulel pa-s. Declaring he had never “founel anything to e*xce*eel the* propaganda in favoi of Eorel,'" Chairman Norris of the* Senate Agriculture Committee, 'luring a hearing toelay oil various proposals fAr development of Muscle* Shoals, asserted that he coulel under stand “why the* people* who expect to make millions .-elling real estate and speculating at Muscle Shoals want Mr. Corel's proposal accepted.' The committee chairman eleclai-ed that “there are* people right now run ning for Congress on the Eorel propo sition." and that it was impossible “to i tin for offu*e in Alabama uni *.-- j you are for Eorel.” Criticism by Senator Norris of what he elescriheel as propaganda in favor eif the Fore I offer was inter jjecteel during ten examination of W. | r I.

Mr. Waldo told the committee* that opposition to the Fore I offer had come fiom the New England States. New York.

Senator Norris, breaking in to the testimony, eleclared that disposition of the* nitrate- and power preejects at Mti-ele Shoals involved the* “great est real estate* snap that ha- ever taken plAce since tlu* beginning of 1 time.” Part eef the propaganda foi Mr.t ( Eorel, the Senator said, was being | eonelucted ley the farmer organiza tion.- named by the Eorel offer which he added, were seneling letters to all parts eif the country urging “the people tei burn the grass behind the fellows who won't vote for Ford." In this connection he mentioned Cray Silver, Washington representa tive of the* American Farm Bureau Federation. Alleged Fertilizer Trust. Senator Heflin. Democrat, eif Ala-> bama. called 'attention to the* propa ganda carried on by the fertiliser trust, which, he said, did notßßbt Mr. Ford to get Muscle Shoals, •‘Government and other witnesses.” Senator Norris replied, “have testi fied here that there is no such thing a- a 'fertilizer trust,’ and we would have to find them not guilty if we tried them on the evidence taken.” The Alabama Senator declared, however, he was satisfied there was a fertilizer trust, and Senator Norris said he was willing to subpoena any witness who could prove the exis tence of such a trust. Mr. Waldo told the committee that he had u number of publications printed by the fertilizer interests; which he would submit to the com mittee as evidence that it was ac tively engaged in opposing the Ford offer.
