The miners base, their claims for a higher scale on assertions that wages hav# not advanced In proportion with living costs.

THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN COLORADO RIVER PUN OF DAVIS APPROVED Speakers Discuss Flood Dan gers in Imperial and Yuma Valleys THOENIX. Aria.. March IJ.—Sp«k -ors before the Colorado river commis sion her© today voiced unanimous ap proval of the Davis plan for develop ment of the Colorado river. One of the outstanding recommenda tions of this plan, which has been sub mitted to congress, is tho construction at once of the Boulder canon dam to forestall possible destruction of the Imperial and Yuma valleys by flood waters. Arthur P. Davis, director of tho gov ernment reclamation’ service, was pres ent at the session nnd outlined his plan to tho commission. Ho declared there Is enough water In tho I ’dorado river to provide for every feasible irrigation project in the seven stales of the Colorado basin. Tho questions of tn« allocation of water and tha priority to use of the Colorado’* undeveloped resources among the seven basin states remain ed In the background today whUo speakers emphasised the flood danger menacing the Imperial and Yuma val leys. FOUR POWER TREATY (Continued from rage One.) 1 passed it off by saying he has not jnoticed that. Inasmuch as this la the most import ant point in the treaty and constitutes Ilfs chief purpose, such an admission left Reed In about as awkward a posi tion as any senator often, finds hlm solf In. Wo noticed when we read the printed account of the debate In the congressional record the next day that this passage between Lenroot and Reed had been calmly eliminated. By far tho weightiest and most con vincing speech against the treaty was Borah's. Tf the other irreconcilable* and the opponents of the treaty gen erally had as complete a knowledge of history and as much forensic ability as Borah, they might have made a bet ter Impression. The really determining factor, how ever. is the state of public feeling thruout the country. All the responses and all the evidences of popular feel ing are discouraging to the opposltloh •" the treaty. They all tend to show' that the country is moat ttnreceptlve th© sort of agitation which was sue • ossful In preventing ratification of 1 th© league of natlona. The country has looked upon the Washington conference at close hand It was hsld in Washington, and tho country has come to the feeling that nftor all International conference don't necessarily bite. Tho burden of proof on the opponent* of tha ratification of the four power treaty fa felt to be much heavier ngatnat the Irreconcil able* than In the caae of th* league of nations fight. They are discouraged end knoxv they will not win. (Copyright. 1)22 by The New York Evening Tost. Inc ) DODGE NOMINATED DENVER POSTMASTER WASHINGTON.
