Tho Col orado river treaty, signed at Santa Fe, N. M-, on November 24, last, is fair to all sections of the river area, according to a statement Is sued hero today by Delph 10. Car penter of Greeley, Colo., member of the commission. "Tho compact injures no pres ent development and encourages future progress," declared the statement. "Tho Imperial valley is protect ed in its present water supply, and (hvnitph the, eoinn.iet. will obtain that degree of co-operation esscn-i tial to tho early construction ui flood control-works, whereby the annual menace of another break in tho levees at flood time, will be avoided. "After the compact has been rat ified, the people of Colorado and the upper states may join the lower river states in a united effort to control the flood menace with out any danger-of thereafter being penalized by reason of ..the earlier construction of such' works. The unfortunate experience upon both tho Hit) CJronde nnd North I'lnlte rivers will be uvolded. The con struction of great storage works on tho lower river will not give rise to claims of prior appropriation against later construction in the upper states. This Will remove the present necessity of resisting the construction of such works. "One outstanding feature of the wholo problem is the fact that the water which rises in Colorado. Wvomlng, Utah and New Mexico, will always flow to the canyon, ex cept where necessarily diverted and used upon the limited available territory in tho upper basin. "In other words nature will al ways provide a bounteous supply to the lower states, notwithstand ing the upper development. The compact gives double assurance to the lower states that the depletion of the stream by development in the upper basins will bo so limited (hat present and future uses of tho lower basin will not be im paired. But . irrespective of the limitation so fixed, nature nlways will cause excess waters to pass Lee's Ferry."

Uther witnesses Keller Intimated he would summon include. Gcorgo W. Wlckersham. former attorney general: Samuel Gnrnpers, presi dent of the American Federal Ion ot lflbor. and Guy Oyster, .Mr. Gorup crs' secretary. In his charges, formally filed, Mr. Keller tut fort li fourteen spe cific grounds for the Impeachment, alleging that Mr. Daugherty had practiced "fraud and deceit" on Mr. Taft, while president, to obtain the. release of Charles W. -Morse. The reasons why Mr. Keller de sired to have Chief Justice Tuft ami Mr. Wiekcrsbam testify wero s.-t forth in his bill of pnrlieuluvs. tin eited the case of "William N. Jones convicted in DMJ7 for alleged land frauds against tho govern ment in Oregon nod subsequently pardoned by President Taft. Ho alleged that William .1. Hums, now chief of the bureau of investigation of the department of justice, and then employed by tho government, got' possession "in advance" of tho list of prospective jurors which, wero to bo called in tho trial of Jones, and placed opposite their names a notation as to their so called fitness from a prosecution standpoint. - Through th0 influence of a secret service a Kent associated as a de fendant, ho said, "Jones was in duced to accept as Jurors men ta whom otherwise ho would have ob jected." Attorney General Wlck ersham, after Investigating the cir cumstances, reported to Mr. Taft, as set forth in the Keller bill, that he could not countenahco tho methods employed in the prosecu tion of these cases by requiring "an enforcement ot tho sentence Im posed in the Jones case." Upon receipt of the report by Mr. Wlckersham, President Taft promptly pardoned Jone.-j. tho bill set forth. At the time of Burns' appoint ment by Mr. Daugherty, Mr. Keller4 asserted that Mr. Gonipers went to bim and protested, calling atten tion to the record In the Jones case, and that Mr. Daugherty, in his presence, sent for tho files which wero "produced and which con tained the report of Attorney Gen eral Wickersham and tho direction of President Taft for the issuance of a pardon."

Mr. Keller said it would rcqulra at least a month additional time for him to prepare full particulars) in his case, and that most of thls time would be taken up in examlng documents at the department of justice to which ho demanded ho be given access. Declaring be had evidence to prove that "Harry M. Daugherty is unfit to be attorney general of the 1'nited States." Mr. Keller said Mr. Daughertv's "consistent refusal to prosecute" offenders charged with violations of tho anti-trust laws had become a "public scandal." "Beverting to your extraordinary demands that I furnish names and addresses of -witness on whom C rely to support my charge." Mr. Keller said. "I assume . on do not thereby intend to limit mo to the calling ot witnesses who arc named. However, apart from that consid eration I respectfully ami emphat ically pi-utest against being com pelled to comply with thi demand and beg to advise you that I shall refuse, to do so except In tho par ticulars in which I and my ad visors regard it as safo for me to obey.'' Mr. Keller said he had no objec tion to furnishing the names ot Chief Justice Taft, Mr. Gompers. Mr. Wickersham and Mr. Oyster, but that "in general I do not pro pose to have tho witnesses subject ed to the surveillance of tho detec tive bureau of the department ot iustlce., miller the guidance of Mr. Hums" private agency, especially in view of the character of tho charges made against the attorney general, involving Mr. Burns." "Nor do I prop se," ho sal that witnesses shall be terrorized, browbeaten, driven or coerced, or Inveigled out of the jurisdiction." He called attention to charges that were made on the floor of tho houso and senate by members who have assailed thfi attorney genera! that since their announced opposi tion to the attorney general thev have been shadowed by detectives and their offices broken into and papers stolen.
