NOT TO 'FINISH IT
Columbia Jetty Appropriation
Will Be Limited.
ALL IN RIVER ANDHARBOR BILL
As Work Is Not Under Continuing
Contract, Appropriation Will
Not Suffice to Complete It,
-but Will Be Large.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. AVash
ington, Jan. IS. Chairman Burton, of the
rivers and harbors committee, has ruled
that the present project for Improving the
mouth of the Columbia Is not under a
"continuing contract," and. therefore, all
money appropriated for continuing- this
work must be carried In the river and
harbor bill. It had been the understand
ing of the Oregon and Washington delega
tions that provision for this project could
be made in both the river and harbor and
the rundry civil bills, and that between
the two bills enough money would be ap
propriated this session to complete the
Chairman Burton's position, however.
If sustained, will mean that only one ap
propriation can be made for the mouth of
the river this session, and that only
enough will be appropriated to carry on
the work until another river and harbor
bill is passed. He explains, however, that
when the unexpended balance of the last
appropriation is added to the amounts
covered by outstanding liabilities, there is
nearly a million dollars still available, and
that this, with what is carried in the
river and harbor bill, will be sufficient to
continue work for some time.
Oregon and Washington improvements
were not discussed by the rivers and har
lKr committee today. The situation re

CLAIMS OF SEALERS CONSIDERED
Dolliver Objects to Compensating
for Losses Suffered in Poaching.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 19. Consideration
of the statehood bill was continued In the
Senate today, and Stone spoke for two
hours In opposition to it. The bill for
the remuneration of American fur seal
ers who suffered losses because or their
suppression, also was debated at some
length, but no action was taken.
When the bill providing for the com
pensation of American citizens whose fur
stealing vessels were seized by the United
States In Bering Sea prior to the arbi
tration of 1906, came up, Dolliver offered
a substitute referring the claims to the
Court of Claims, and .spoke in opposition
to the original measure. He said that It
was proposed to pay men not only their
losses but for not entering upon a whole
sale violation of law. The proposition
was-, he said, without precedent.
Stone addressed himself especially to
the landed interests of the Indians In the
Indian Territory. He proposed an amend
ment providing that all allotted lands
shall be subject to taxation. He said that
If all the Indian lands are to be relieved
of taxation for 21 years, as proposed, the
state would be seriously embarrassed.
Unless the state was to be given the
means of self-support, it should be kept
In the state of vassalage it is now in. He
said the bill as it stands confers on the
Indians of Indian Territory the rishts of
citizens while relieving them of the du
ties of citizenship.
Baily took the position that Congress
ha? no right to impose conditions affect
ing the taxation of the people of any
Mate. "The Indians of Indian Territory
have been made citizens," he said, "and
it is not competent for Congress to pro
vide for the taxation of one citizen of a
Kate and relieve another citizen from It."

TO DEVELOP P0EEIGN TRADE.
President Recommends Appointment
of Commercial Attaches.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 13. The President
today sent a message to the Senate rec
ommending favorable action upon sugges
tions made by Assistant Secretary Loomis
for co-operation by the Department of
State and Commerce and Labor in collect
ing Information concerning trade condi
tions in foreign countries. The President's
The ctinc Secretary recommends that pro
vision be made for six special agents with the
diplomatic rank and title of commercial at
tache to be sent abroad to make practical
trial of the proposed pln: to report to the
Department of State conditions existing In dif
ferent countries which might suggest modifica
tions or changes In the general scheme: lo
prepare for the Department rf Commerce aad
Labor reports upon commerce and manufac
tures or on kindred topics of a. more exhaustive
and comprehensive character than in ordinar
ily obtainable at present: and to visit con
sulates, examine their norklcc and sujrBest
tuch changes, either to the consular officers
or to the Department of State, as would tend
to the general improvement and strengthening
of the eerice.
It is proposed that these agents shal be.
chosen primarily for their expert knowledge,
but .shall be not merely specialists, except for
particular Investigations that might from lime
to time .be required, but practical men of af
fairs with the experience best suited - to fit
them for their executive duties. It is aug
Kted that the consular service might supply
th best type of agents desired, and that, for
this reason, and also because of the Incentive
to merit which would be provided appoint
ments should be made preferably from among
these consular officers who have demonstrated
their special fltnets and capacity.
The President expresses the opinion
that this measure promises important and
far-reaching consequences in strengthen
ing the foreign service in the Interest of
trade and its development. He points out
the dependence of agriculture on foreign
markets for its surplus, and the rapidly
increasing surplus of manufactures for
export. He says the exports of manufac
tures in the calendar year 1904 are esti
mated at over $500,000,000, as against 5434.
000,000 in the high-record year, 1900. He
urges the Importance of providing for the
free and full development of this export
movement. While recognizing the com
mercial utility developed In recent years
by the Consular service, he says this Im
provement should not be accepted as fully
satisfying even present requirements, not
to speak of prospective demands. He
For this reason I commend to the considera
tion of the Congress the recommendations of
the acting Secretary of State looking to the
gradual systematizing and equipment of the
whole foreign service by simple and Inex
pensive means as an auxiliary, responsive at
all points to what may reasonably be expected
of It by the great Industrial and commercial
Interests which are so deeply concerned In
enlarging their share of the world's trade.
The details of the proposed plan are set
out In a long letter from Mr. Loomis. who
says that this plan can be put Into effect
at a very small cost; in fact he places the
cost at the most at $30,000 per annum. Six
commercial attaches or special agents will
be sufficient to initiate the movement.
They would be salaried at $5000 per annum
and traveling expenses, and would be as
signed, one to cover Austria, the Balkan
States, Germany. Switzerland. Russia and
other" countries of Northern Europe; one
for France. Italy, Portugal, Spain and
other countries bordering on the Mediter
ranean: another for Great Britain and
dependencies: the fourth for Mexico, the
West Indies and South America: the fifth
for Asia, more particularly Asiatic Rus
sia, China and Japan; and the sixth to be
held In reserve for special service and
particular missions to any part of the

NIEDRINGHAUS LOSES FOUR
DID NOT COMPLAIN TO CHINA
Russia Held to Be Unjust in Her Cir
cular to the Powers.
PEKIN. Jan. 19. With reference to the
Russian circular note to the powers on
the subject of Chinese neutrality, which
at present Is unanswered, the Chinese gov
ernment complains that it has received
no communication from Russia, and con
sequently is Ignorant of the specific
charges. Immediately after China is ac
quainted with the contents of the Russian
note, the government will reply.
Secretary Hay's communication to China
Is looked upon here as not Intended to
confirm the accuracy of the Russian com
plaints, but as merely recommending the
preservation of China's neutrality. It Is
generally considered in diplomatic circles
here that China has made genuine and
persistent efforts to preserve neutrality:
that neither the Russians nor the Japan
ese have any grounds to complain and
that it Is unfair to saddle China with
responsibility for the action of Chinese
bandits and similar cases.
The recent Russian attempl to smuggle
arms through Chinese territory is pointed
to as proof that Russia Is ready to dis
regard China's rights when It suits her
to do so. The question of China's neu
trality la not associated here with the
possibility of an anti-foreign movement.

ment of Aklns, it would mean that Kerens
would be shorn of political powe: and
Eight members of the Legislature, who
voted against Niedringhaus today, tonight
gave out a long statement In which they
justify their action. They say that it be
hooves the Republican party of Missouri
to elect a Senator who Is free from sus
picion in any way. The statement then
reviews the charges against Mr. Niedring
haus In connection with a contribution of
J2U0CO by St. Louis brewers to the Re
publican campaign fund, and says:
"We feel that it would be a great injus
tice to the Republicans of this state to
elect any man to the exalted position Of
United States Senator whose reputation
is stained In this manner."
The statement protests against the ac
tivity of the Federal officeholders of Mis
souri In Mr. Niedringhaus behalf, and de
clares that the eight members will con
tinue to vote against him.

DUKE IS NOT INSANE.
Liberated by Court, He Refuses In
terview With Wife.
NEW YORK. Jan. 19. Brodle L. Duke,

American Tobacco Company, who has
been kept In a sanitarium, following his
marriage to Alice Webb, was brought be
fore thrt Sunreme Court In Brooklyn to-
' day and discharged from custody, after
I a hearing before Justice Gaynor. The
I action was the result of habeas corpus
proceedings brought by William G. I? ram
hall. Mr. Duke's private secretary, who
alleged that Mr. 'Duke was deprived of his
liberty without his consent, and without
process of law.
After a brief argument JusUce Gaynor
declared that Duke was not demented,
and ordered, that he be given his liberty.
The original complaint against Mr. Duko
was brought by his son. Lawrence Duke,
who alleged that his father was suffer
ing from alcoholic dementia.

court Duke was not present, and counsel
for the Duke family and Bramhall agreed
In asking the court for his discharge so
that the case would be heard In New
York County, but Justice Gaynor indlg-
1 nantlv refused to aeree. He called Dukt
Into court from a hotel near by. sharply

charge for not bringing him Into court,
and ordered Duke's discharge.
While Mr. Duke was in the offices
of Champe S. Andrews, the attorney for
Mr. Bramhall. after being', given his
liberty, his wife entered the office un
announced and sought an Interview
with him. Mr. Andrews said afterward
that Mrs. Duke burst in past his office
force and asked Mr. Duke for a private
interview, and that Mr. Duke refused.
Mrs. Duke then asked if Mr. Duke in
tended to repudiate her, to which Mr.
"By advice of counsel, I cannot an
swer that now. I cannot see nor talk
with you now. These complications,
both yours and mine, must be adjusted
before I can have any Interview with

ly received. They made an agreement
to meet again."
