Xound no means of solvlni it.
They foresee n tremendous Increase
In th< general appropriations snd
they seem unable t?. hold down the!
committees which make up the sup-1
ply bills, ?the "pork barrel" bills and
othef bills which rarrs appropriations
fof tho Government's running expen
Cnlcss some vigorous slashing is
done during the few remaining wec?ki
of the session, th?- aggregate total of
j th?> appropriation will reach or pass
$1,016,000,1. There seemi to be
llial much In siu'ht and everybody who
K<-ts money from Congress is clamor*
Ing for mors?
In the last session the Democratic
leaders In tin House by dlnl of hard
wi?rk an?l obstinacy managed to h ?ld
the total down to $1,019,000,..r j
about IT,.,000 less than 11 ? ? ? Repub-]
Hcan Congress before them appro?
Rconomy was preached every hour
In the Mav and the Impending nation*
al election w.is every day In
th?- week to keep hungry Congress*
men and their constltutents from de?
manding more and more money.
Th?? result "f the determined stand
of Floor Leader Cnderwood and his
associates was that no public bulldingi
'< bill was passed at ail. only one I sttlo
ship was provided for and th?- rivers'
and harbors appropriations were kept
I down below the usual level,
In sj.it.- of iii tins only a ?t.,m"'.ooo
a ifiu could be shown Thai was
something, howevi r, and satisfied In
u measure the general public demand
1 for economy, The election came and
went. 1 le I democrats triumphed and
oil seemed to !??? welt
Another appropriation session has
come, however, and those Interest*
w ii. h were left unprovided for a year
;u" ire more determined than evei
1 to h.iv.' a share of the public monies
1 They are sitting up nights planning
to g< t It too.
r?.r Instance .a Public Buildings
lull oarrylng ? total >>f aboul 916,000,
00f will be reported out and passed
at this session. The House will ;isk
for that much and those Individual
projects which are in>t favored will
be attended te by tn<- ever-accommo
d it Ing senate, By the time that body
gets through With this bill it may
res? h the total "f 110.000,000.
Also, the battleship people are
aioin iri a stat?> of actl' ity. The fact
that they were held down to one big
ship last year has Inspired th"-m to ask
for three this. The outlook is for a
compromise on two ships, i.ut even
so, that is j'ist twice as much money
*th was appropriated for scallghters a
year ago.
Then, loo, the Rivers and Harbors
fail has already been reported, and,
regardlesa ..t' the fact that last year
1 in* waterways projects wer? treated
' g< n< rouslya the ri\?>r and harbor Itn*

Washington. I'?!.. 4.?-The whole

While tl??- till '.n question Involves
only the rights of a power com piny
at Windsor Mills, Conn., the contro?
versy over thf measure has become
so keen that conservation forces ire
lining: up behind it anil will endeavor
to force Its passag?! through the ?en?
President Roosevelt, near the end
of his term, vetot <i two bills which
did not contuin tins recognition of
Federal control, and the nendlng mea
sure Is the first In which o provision
has been Incorporated.
Senator Borah and other western I
Senators are preparing to off? r
amendments affecting the entire sub
ject ol v ederal supervision over
power sites and water powers. The!
Western Senators propose t<> use the
Connecticut river bill as a method
of securing desired changes In the
conservation laws which will permit
freer us< of Wt stern water power re?
sources, t
While the bill no\> before the Sen?
ate received the indorsement of the
Senate Committee <.n Commerce, a
majority of that comm^tee, headed
by Senators llnnkhead and Nelson,
have since signed a report protesting
against the principle --f giving the
Government control nvir voter pow
Their opposition centres on the ar?
gument ff "States' rights" and the
contention that the Federal Govern?
ment "har no moral or legal ground I
tu demand compensation In any
form "

Ineffectual effort today to force action

that any action by caucus would be

Alken, Feb. i?Little of .-. nsation,
inn much of interest, developed today
in the trial of Frederick O. Beach, a
prominent New Vorker, who is charg?
ed with assault and battery with intern
to kill, upon his wife, Mis. Camilla
Havemeyer Beach, at their winter
home here, on February 26, of hist j
year, interest was manifest, at hast. ;
whether or not the coins.? of tin
trial warranted it. for the Court roorr
w.is thronged with men, women a*
girls; even the school girls of Aiken
w? rc to be seen at th. afternoon ses?
Tin net results Of tin- day arc the
production of tho greater part <4 tin
State's testimony, which seeks by clr- ,
cutnstanti.il evidence to connect 1
"Beauty" Beach with the murderous
assault upon Iiis wife.
Thus for, it may be stated with safe*
ty, facts adduced from the testimony
indicate suspicious circumstances, but I
they do not connect the crime with the1
husband of the worn* n assaulted. It ,
is said that a pen knife, the property
of Mr. Beach, which, bears hi,.od
stains, will be Introduced, and that
upon this the State will depend to
Implicate Mr. Beach.
From the trend of the questioning
it appears that the defence rests up?
on a cheap shoe track leaving the
Beach premises, which was found by
those who inspected the grounds af
ter the assault. Such a track was
found leading to the railway cut.
The prosecution has sought strenu?
ously to show that no one was seen
leaving the premises and that there
were witnesses sutli? lent to shut off
every avenue of escape, and yet by
one witness the State shows that a
man was se< n running from the dire< -
tion of the Beach place and it failed
to establish whether or not this man
s black or white. Thus, to all out?
ward appearance, the prosecution has
contributed a valuable point t<? th. d< -
.Most ol the afternoon was spent In
showing that no one was geen leaving
the pla< ? . This morning the state ad?
duced evidence that a man did leave
t'r-'iu the vicinity of the Beach gate.
The defence stresses the coarse shot
thai was worn possibly, by tho negro,
who. Mrs. Beach and Mr. Beach de?
clare, committed the assault.
If the penknife is Introduced in evi?
dence it is likely that the defence will
furnish testimony, otherwise it may
that no evidence will be offered. This,
of course, is contingent upon w hat So?
licitor Gunter may "spring* tomor?
row. At the present stage, however,
there is discussion even of a possible
directed virdict.
There was no salacious testimony,
and those who came with ears primed
for such suffered disappointment.
There was, of course, mu< h broad hin
inur; there were Implied statements
hut the morbidly curious and scanda
lovers had an off day
One little sensation wi s sprung lat?
in the afternoon by former Polle?
Chief Howard, when In subst. n< >? h<
