In the House a Probable, Majority Fa vor Lock Level Canal While the Senate .Favors Sea Level Taft Is Earnestly at Work. Washington, June 1.1. An unexpect ed sung wns struck today in the movement for uu early adjournment of congress, and It Is Ksslblu tho type of the Panama Canal must be settled before congress closes. Secretnry Taft was In conference with Sponkor Can noil nnd Chairman Hepburn of tho committee on Interstate and Foreign commerce, which handles the canal legislation, nnd there Is a disposition to settle the type of cnnnl before the adjournment of congress. Secretary Taft Is tamest In his efforts to have this matter settled before work pro ceeds much further. It Is thought that when the $25,000,000 for continuing tho work on tho canal is reached an amendment for n S5-foot lock canal may b made, which would mean a determination of tho typo before tho great supply measure could becomo n lnw. Tho canal situation In tho house seems to bo simply n question of tho manner In which that body shall ex press Itself against the Ben love) proposition which tho sennto Is expect ed to pass. With possibly threoex captions tho members of tho commit tee on Interstate Commerce, to which tho bill will be referred to In tho houso are In favor ot a lock canal. Members of the commltteo assort ulso that there Is a tnnjorlty In th(i houso of tho snmti opinion. ' Chnl.-ipau Ilophurn and members of tho committee sny that If tho lnw Is' passed prescribing tho typo to bo built, the preslflont Will have no alternative- but to go ahead. The com mltteo lias referred to tho fact that In deciding to build tho canal at Panama congress acted on tho report of tho Wnlkor commission, which was that an 85-foot lock lover cnnnl could bo bulltfor 1145,000,000. This net, known as tho Spooner net, appropriated $10, 000,000 and authorized tho president to begin construction. Since, then ad ditional appropriations have been made, with no changes in the legisla tive plan. With this in Tlow, it is held that should tho sennto bill bo reported from tho tiouso commorco commltteo, with tho recommendation that it Ho on tho table, thereby killing It, no condition will bo mado In tho present law nnd tho pro3ldent will have no nltornn- tlvo but to contlnuo the construction of a lock canal. This courso Is tho ono most likely to be taken, but the house might bo forced by tho sennto to take a direct force on tho matter by placing tho sea level proposition as a rider on tho sundry civil bill.

He nlso ipoko of the liquor provision as onus lug Just Indignation on the part of thc people, saying that it Is it result of "that Pharisaical cant and hypocrisy which loads some to scrutinize with Brest core tho sins of othors while totally oblivious of their own." He pleaded for the right of the now stnte to regulnlo Its own affairs nnd declared thnt "ho would not give 100, 000 people of the wost for 500,000 peo ple of the east, because one western man Is worth flvo eastern men In all tho olemontA of solf-respeot. courage and manhood and could take bettei onre of his morals than could persons of tho 'olfcte east.'"
