PRtSIUENT CALLS STEVENS' BLUff CANAL ENGINEER WAS IN EF FECT DISMISSED, AND DID NOT RESIGN. UTTER WAS DISRESPECTflll SAID TO HAVE TOLD THE PRESI DENT THAT CONTRACTORS WOULD NOT DO. Washington, March 1. — Chief Engi neer John F. Stevens, in charge of ac tual construction work on the Pana ma canal, was in effect dismissed by ( thc president and did not resign. This is the construction placed on the ac tion of the president by senators who have seen the eorrespbndence and who know all the collateral facts. Administration officials take the view that the chief engineer attempted to "bluff" the president and that the president resented this and accepted Stevens' resignation in calling the bluff. From a source close to the president It is learned that when it was first prposed to build the isthmian canal by contract Chief Engineer Stevens was favorable to the suggestion. Ho saw I that it possessed many advantages.! He thus expressed himself to the pres dent and to the secretary of state. Has Change of Heart. Later, when the advertising for tiie contract had been done and there was much press discussion of the "real canal builders" which the contract sys tem was to develop, Mr. Stevens had a change of mind and heart. He did not, however, officially indicate this change to his superiors. Later, when the bids for the contract were awarded, he 1 saw that Mr. Oliver had an excellent prospect of securing the canal con tract. He addressed a lengthy letter to the president, in the course of whicli he said that he would never be able to get along with Oliver if the contract was awarded to him and his associ ates. lie took a positive stand in the letter, and in the mind of the presi dent and his advisers served notice on the chief executive that if the contract went lo Oliver he would give tip his place on the canal work. Bluff Is Called. In effect he left an open alternative to the president of choosing between Stevens and Oliver. The president read the lette rover repeatedly and read the letter over repeatedly and his advisers. It was the unanimous opinion of all of them tiiat Stevens had been insubordinate and dictato rial, if not disrespectful. In. the lan guage of one of the president's cabi net advisers, lie had "hung a bluff" on the president which the president de cided to "call." The president did this by cabling to Mr. Stevens that his res ignation would be accepted at once and his successor appointed. CONGRESS. Conference Report on River and Har bor Sill Agreed To.

D., March 1.—Entirely cut off from railroad communication by the flood wKich is devastating tho southern portion of this (Clay) county, a petition to the South Dakota delega tion in congress is being circulated asking that haste and generosity be used in the matter of appropriation for river improvement work at this point. The hundreds of families from fer tile and valuable farms who have fled to this city from the overflowing wa ters of the Missouri river feel that their extremities should have peculiar influence on the congressmen who seem disposed to put the knife into the river and harbor bill where it men tions the Missouri river improvement. But no plan of river betterment could ever contemplate and avoid the dangers which now have come and whicli are increasing. An ice gorge, the largest within the memory of the oldest pioneer, fills ihe channel of the Missouri river for a distance of twelve miles.
