tor Mitchell wrote Chairman
sp.-V Is hlnk you ought to have been
. 3j&e liberal In the start as to
r'Sttf. I want to exnress to von mv
' v for tne masterful manner
titpt. t i handled the bill after it was
-5sWTt'v, -he House of Representatives.
SfcUssure you that I, and all my
associara$4tj!el deeply grateful to you for
your services in this matter, as we are
fully conscious of the fact that without?
your aid it, would have been impossible
to have secured recognition, although I
have felt for some time that quite a large
majority of the House was very favorable
to legislation In our Interest, and would
Indeed have voted, as I believe, had we
insisted on it, for a considerable larger
In reply, Tawney wrote as follows:
"My reason for not endeavoring to se
cure a larger appropriation for direct aid
to the Exposition Company was not be
cause of any hostility on my part to aid
the enterprise or to the proposed commem
oration of the event to be celebrated, long
before the Senate bill was reported to the
House, or was referrd to this committee,
the matter of Congressional action for
this purpose was the subject of numerous
conversations among leading men in the
House and among members of this com
mittee. I am satisfied that if you could
have heard the ex'pressions of the Expo
sition that I did. both in the House and -In
Ae committee, you would almost have de
spaired of even attempting to get any bill
through the House whatever.
"Knowing the nature of the opposition,
&nd the source from which it came, my
effort was directed mainly to so formulat
ing a measure as to disarm, as far as
possible, this opposition. Had I taken hold
of the proposition with any enthusiasm
end favored a larger appropriation, in
stead of pursuing the course I did at the
beginning, it would have resulted, as I
then feared, and am now certain, in the
alignment of those who -were opposed to
any legislation, and also have prompted
them to effect an organization for the pur
poso of defeating it both jn the committee
and In the House. I felt all the time that
the Pacific Coast members were over
eangulne as to what .the House would
do, but their feeling of confidence was
naturally the outgrowth of expressions
made to them by members who, not being
at the time confronted with a specific
proposition, did not manifest their real
feelings in the matter and, to avoid giving
offense, held out the hope of ultimately
favoring the proposition.
"I regret that the situation was not
more favorable, so that we might have
done more in behalf of the Exposition
than we have."
Passing of Bill No Easy Matter.
Senator Mitchell made the following
comment after the bill had been passed:
"I am greatly gratified at the final
outcome of the Exposition bill. When
the delegations arrived here last No
vember and began talking about the Lewis
and Clark Exposition, every one shook his
head, and the general remark was made
that the time for exposition appropriations
had passed. The delegation, however, de
termined it would not take no for an
answer, and eucceeded, after a strenuous
campaign. In passing a bill through the
Senate carrying $1,775,000. This was not
accomplished without great and persistent
labor upon the part of the whole delega
tion, and by Messrs. Scott, Boise, Myers
and Huber, representing the Exposition.
"Still greater difficulty was encountered
in the House. "While the result is not all
we had hoped for, I regard the act as it
stands of Immeasurable benefit, all things
considered. To the Exposition I regard
it as an equivalent to a cash benefit of
$800,000. Again, wo realize a benefit of be
tween $100,000 and $300,000 by reason of the
transfer of Government exhibits from St
"But, aside from all this, the very fact
that by this legislation the Government
has become identified with the Exposition,
thus lifting it out of the class of mere
local expositions, gives it a National char
acter, as contradistinguished from mere
local concerns. This is and will be of in
estimable value in promotion and suc
cess of the Exposition equivalent in-and
of itself, in my Judgment, to from $300.000 J
"Take it altogether, the Exposition and
all connected with it and all who contrib
uted to the passage of the measure, It
seems to me are entitled to congratula
tions. And especially are tbo people of
Oregon and all others Interested in the
success of this Exposition under great ob
ligations to the President of the United
States for invaluable aid given by him
In bringing about this piece of legislation."
Senator Mitchell today wrote Secretary
Shaw, asking that he use Oregon gold in
coining the souvenir Lewis and Clark dollars.

Balfour Says Britain Has No Inten
tion of Adding to Indian Frontier.
LONDON, April 13. The House of Com
mons today, by a vote of 270 to 167, adopt
ed a resolution sanctioning the employ
ment of Indian troops for the protection
of the "political mission to Thibet."
War Secretary Brodrlck, introducing
the resolution, read a telegram from Col
onel Younghusband, the political agent at
the head of the mission, to the effect that
Colonel MacDonald, in command of the
escort, reached his goal, Gyangtse, Thibet,
April 11, without the loss of a man. The
telegram added that the Thibetans were
highly demoralized and were fleeing from
the Gyangtse Valley, that the Chinese
delegate was coming In and that the
Thibetan delegates were on their way to
Mr. Broderick proceeded to defend Brit
ish action, saying that while the Thibe
tans were trying to circumscribe their
relations with India, they simultaneously
were attempting to open up relations with
Russia. The British government could
not acquiesce in any change In the status
quo In Thibet, nor countenance an at
tempt on the part of any foreign govern
ment to establish a predominant Interest
there. Great Britain, declared Mr. Brod
rlck, had no desire to occupy nor to es
tablish a permanent mission In Thibet,
but the government was absolutely re
solved that if any power Is to be predomi
nant in Thibet It must bo Great Britain.
The Liberal leader. Sir Henry Campbell
Bannerman, warmly criticised and con
demned the mission, and the "slaughter
of the Thibetans," declaring that Mr.
Brodrlck's explanations of tho reasons of
the mission were wholly insufficient. The
debate ended with a short speech, by
Premier Balfour declaring the mission bad
no ulterior objects. The last thing the
government desired, he said, was to -add
to its Indian frontier responsibilities.

ONLY TO PROTECT EMIGRANTS
Hungarian Premier Explains at
Length a New Extradition Treaty. -BUDAPEST,
April 13. In the Lower
House of the Hungarian Diet today. Pre
mier Tizza. made a long statement re
garding the proposed extradition law,
which he said would be introduced in a
few days. It was not intended to pro
mote emigration, but to surround emi
grants who absolutelyv refused to remain
in Hungary with governmental protec
tion, and keep In touch with them with
t5ie view of their ultimate return. Ow
ing to the demands of the steamship
companies, the government had intended
to Institute a line under state control,
but in the meanwhile a contract had
been concluded with the Cunard Line. The
terms provided for a ten years' contract,
terminable by notice at the end of five
years, or in the event of emigration fall
ing below 50,000 persons It could bo can
celled at the end of the third year. In
the event of the United States prohibiting
immigration the contract was "Ipse facto
void. Tho Cunard Company undertook
to make 26 trips annually from Flume to
New York, accommodating 2000 emigrants
per trip. Should tho total bo less than
30,000 persons the government agreed to
pay 100 kronen (about $20) per head de
ficit. The Premier said the government
would gladly pay the penalty because it
would indicate a falling off in emigra
tion. Premier Tizza added that the strictest
supervision would be exercised to prevent
agents from holding out Improper in
ducements to prospective emigrants.

papers opposed to the government are
trying to make Marchand another Bou
langer, reviewing his exploits at Fashoda
