Deep Waterway association com
tion hare this afternoon after tha reso
lutions committee had asked approval
<>' its report. Friends of the chief ex
ecutive rushed to the platform and
appealed to the delegates to eliminate
■what Governor Deneen of Illinois
termed an insult. Altar two hours'
•warm dlscur.sion the objectionable koc
tion was stricken out. The lection
■which caused the heated debate J"1
"And in hatter disappointment and
in sorrow «< are compelled '" deplore
the course of the executive In delaying
the creation of the board provided i"
the last rivers and harbor* act and
In finally appointing a board which
proved unfriendly to our policy and
our project, despite our patriotic effort

nig- the resolutions, said Clio president
had delayed the appointment of the
engineers for live months Bind that two
of the. army engineers on the board
.-ire known to be unfriendly to the
BAUJIIOIDT DEFENDS TACT
Congressman Bartholdt said the sec
tion did an injustice to the president;
that President Tuft by the wool ing- of |
the act was compelled to name the
chief of engineers of tfie army as one |
of the board. He appealed to the con
vention to vote to eliminate the harsh
Congressman H. T. Rainey of Illinois
made a bitter attack on the army en
gineers as a whole, and said that the
men on the board were prejudiced
against the waterway. He Bald the"
resolution as read should be adopted.
Governor Donecn characterized the
section as an insult, and declared
that President Taft had attracted the
attention of tho world to the project
by making a trip down the Mississippi
river last year. He predicted that
next year the convention would be at
tacking the members of the lower
house of congress.
Chairman A. H. Scott of the resolu
tions committee said the committee In
its deliberations had not discussed
Other resolutions adopted demand or
congress a waterway connecting the
Great Lakes with the Gulf of Mexico,
■with an initial depth of not leu than !
fourteen feet and lock sills adapted to
a depth of not less than twenty-four
•■And we. hold," the section read,
"that the advocacy of a less depth by
federal engineers has arisen from ■ de
sire to circumvent our efforts an • de
feat our main purpose of improving
transportation by an adequate system
ii commercial navigation."
ADDITIONAL MONKV BEQI'IRED
The. section which caused the debate
was a ii.rt of section Sof the resolu
tions. As adopted section 8 reads:
"Expressing appreciation of the ac
tion of the sixty-fust congress in mak
ing .< conditional appropriation for the
la ken to the gulf deep waterway—an
appreciation In full measure of the
merit of that modest appropriation —
we declare our need for more liberal
provision for this purpose by congress.'
The old officers of the association, in
cluding President W. V. Kavanaugh
of St. Louis, Treasurer George H. Mon
roe of Jollet, 111., and the former vice
presidents were re-elected.
