Senator Smith of Michigan Not With

Their Condemnation of

B.v C. E. STEWART
Washington, July 30. — (Special.)-— Many
members of Congress are seriously con

certain defeat of the rivers and harbors
appropriation bill. The bill carries in
round figures $52,000,000, and is the largest
rivers and harbors bill on record.
Opposition to the measure lias been
vigorous in the Senate, some democrats
joining the republicans in outspoken ob
jection to the measure. If the hill ;s de
feated Alabama will be quite seriously
affected. Inasmuch as it carries appropria
tions for tin* completion of several proj

and dams of the Black Warrior and the
Warrior rivers, the expenditure of which
it is estimated would complete the work
of opening those waterways to naviga
tion, to the end that transportation fa
cilities by water would be finally con
tinuous from Birmingham to the port of
Mobile. In addition tiie bill also carries
appropriations for the Mobile harbor im
provements. Alabama and Coosa river
improvements, and other lesser projects
on the Tombigbee and other streams in
Alabama, making a total lor the state of
approximate $1,500,000.
The republican objections to the bill
are that it is a “pork barrel'' measure
and that further it is an annual bill, while
it has been one of the customs of Con
gress to pass a rivers and harbors hill
only every two years. Congress last year
passed a rivers and harbors hill carrying
$41,000,000.
Defenders of the pending Dill declare
that a close analysis of the measure will
disclose the fact that it is as free from
“pork" as any preceding similar meas
ure ever passed by Congress. None of the
great appropriation bills—rivers and har
bors, publie buildings and grounds, or
even the army and navy, to say nothing
of the pensions bills—hut, what are more
or less vulnerable in spots, and have al
ways been under the present system of
making appropriations.
The republicans, who are fighting the
measure, are actuated, it is charged,
solely by political reasons. Seeking to
have some ground for an attack upon
the party in power for “extravagance,”
they haev selected the rivers and har
bors bill for tiie "goet.”
Senator William Alden Smith of Mich
igan, however, is a warm defender of the
bill. Senator Smith falls back upon the
fact that the bill is composed of appro
priations for various big projects which
have been approved by the engineer corps
of tiie army, and be points out that only
projects approved by tiie board of engi
neers are incorporated in the bill, which
fact robs the measure of the charge of be
ing a "pork barrel" bill unless the corps
of engineers are tiie guilty parties, and
they have no particular incentive for the j
distribution of pork.
Senator Smith said:
"Members of Congress have realized
for years that an adverse report from the
army engineers virtually dooms a proj
ect." and he continues: "I do not recall
a single Instance in my own experience
where this appellate hoard lias not exer
cised full supervisory authority with con
servatism and impartiality. This course
has done away almost entirely with the
old practice of 'log rolling’ which was
many years ago quite commonly practiced
in securing local benefits in rivers ami
harbors bills.
“There may lie." continued the senator,
"improvements in rivers and harbors not
as necessary to communities today as
when undertaken, but that system was
not without its c*. impious; boards of
trade, chambers of commerce, common
councils and citizens generally. Thejr
gave public men no peace until their am
bitions were initiated. The situation is
entirely different today. And the work of
improving rivers and harbors must now
have the approval of the expert engineers
of the army before it can obtain any
standing before the committee of either
House of Congress."
The senator declared that “partially
completed projects cannot be permitted to
languish without great loss to the govern
ment and the communities affected."
This statement coming from a repub
lican senator throws a monkey wrench
into tiie campaign thunder of the repub
licans opposing tiie bill. The democrats
also have the consolation of falling back
on the approval of the army engineers
for every item in the bill, while formerly
tlteir republican friends respo’nsible far
the Dig appropriations made when they
were in power for river and harbor proj
ects had no such support, but made the
appropriations indiscriminately.
Too Good to Be True
From Current Opinion.
A woman, wearing an anxious expres
sion, called at an insurance office one
morning.
"I understaid." she said, “that for $5
T can insure my house tor $1000 in your
c r rr.pany.”
“Yes," replied the agent, "that is right.
If your house burns down we pay you
$ <*f0."
I "And." continued the woman anxiously,
"do yon make any _ inquiries as to the
origin of the fire?"
"Certainly," was tiie prompt reply; "we
make tiie most careful inquiries,

“Oh!”—and she turned to leave the of
fice—“1 thought there was a catch in it
sr mewhere.”

3000 State Troops Leave
Montgomery After Teh
Days’ Maneuvers
Montgomery. July 30.—(Special.) * *
Three thousand soldiers of the Alabama
National Guard are on their way home
after a ten days’ encampment here.
All day long troops were leaving the
city, the last battalion departing at a
late hour this afternoon.
During tiie day the city presented an
appearance devoid of military activities
except for tin- departure of soldiers,
who left on all trains.
Chief \V. 11. Taylor of the police de
partment. declared today in comment
ing upon the encampment that the mi
litiamen who were in camp were, as
a general rule, the most orderely of any
detachment of troops that have ever
been in Montgomery, lie declared that
many reports of disorderly conduct dur
ing tin encampment were greatly ex
aggerated. ^ J
Small Casualty Record
The notably small casualty record of
the British railroad, which has often
been compared with that of this coun
try. is due to two causes: First, the
practically universal uso of the absolute I
block signal system: secondly, the ab
solute obedience to that system re- '
quired of the enginemen. Statistics I
show that as far back as 1881 live- j
sixths of the double-track railway in *
Great Britnin was equipped with block §
signals, and that in 1904. 99.6 per cent j
was so equipped. The British engine- *
man has been operating under the
block signal practically all his life, and
he obeys its mandates, says the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat. When the sema- I
phore says stop, he stops, nor does h*t J |
open the throttle until the arm has j
fallen. In this country we play fast and I j
loose with our signal system: on many ,
roads, on most roads In fact, the en- |
glneman after stopping at a signal r
which is against him. is allowed to pro- ]
ceed cautiously, feeling his way to the ;
obstruction ahead of him.
