rigation Bonds Accepted
Without Debate.
Effort to Extend Philippine Land
Laws to Friar Holdings Is tn
" successful Withdrawals
Will Be "Temporary."
WASHINGTON, June 15. WJth SS0.
00,000 provided tor the completion of
Irrigation projects and various other
amendments, the House bill authorizing
the withdrawal of public lands by the
Iresldent passed the Senate today.
Several other amendments were pre
sented, but none of Importance was
adopted. .monjr the mora important
provisions rejected were an amendment
by Beveridge specifically withdrawing
from entry the coal lands of Alaska and
one by Gore bringing the friar lands of
the Philippines within the operation of
the general land laws of those islands.
There was no roll call on the final pas
sage of the bill.'
Bonds Pass Overwhelmingly, j
The bill was taken up soon after the
Benate convened and a vote was ordered
on the Carter amendment authorizing the
Issuance of $30,000,000 worth of certifi
cates of indebtedness for irrigation.
There was no debate and the amendment
was aceepted with practical unanimity.
Senators Burton, Galllnger and Kean
casting the only negative votes out of a
total of 60.
Dixon presented an amendment au
thorizing the appointment of a con
servation commission of 15 and spoke
In support of it. Heyburn sought to
have the amendment so changed as to
provide that all members of the com
mission be selected from west of the
100th meridian. He said the East was
not interested in conservation and
Eastern men were not familiar with the
PIncliot Xot Wanted.
"In my prophetic mind I see Mr. Glf
ford Plnchot at the head of the com
mission," he said. "We want no such
commission no such masters."
He said he was opposed to the com
mission on general principles and com
plained it was intended to "make places
for some people and give the commis
sion an air of exclusion and imperial'
Galllnger agreed with Heyburn, and
said: "If the misfortune overtakes us
of having at the head of the commis
sion the gentleman mentioned I can see
nothing but trouble to come of It."
Senators Overman, Clarke of Wyo
ming, Lodge and Galllnger opposed the
Heyburn amendment as sectional, and
It was withdrawn.
After further discussion the Dixon
amendment was laid on the table.
Friar Lands Xot Affected.
An amendment by Gore extending' the
public land laws of the Philippines to the
friar lands was voted, down. 20 to 33.
While speaking in support of his
amendment, Gore criticized a decision of
the Attorney General authorizing the ac
qnuisltlon of more of the Philippine
lands, saying:
"No first-class lawyer other than the
Attorney eGneral would have rendered
euoh a decision."
He declared the tendency seems to be
to give the sugar Interests a monopoly
of the Philippine Islands.
Burton presented an amendment, the
effect of which would have been to re
strict mining and prospecting rights on
withdrawn lands, but it went down In
the face of a protest from Smoot.
Burton was unsuccessful in an effort to
strike out the word "temporary," as de
fining the proposed withdrawals.
Alaska Coal Discussed.
Presenting an' amendment authorizing
the withdrawal of coal lands in Alaska
and providing for their lease, Beveridge
said If the principle included in the
amendment had been adopted 50 years
ago enough returns would have been In
sured to pay off the national debt and
pay most of the taxes.
Borah charged the policy was to close
up Western coal mines In the interests
of Eastern miners. He said the leasing
system would place the control of the
mines in the hands of a few men. Carter
declared that coal is now belnfe shipped
from West Virginia to Valdez, Alaska,
when just a good coal could be had
Within gun6hot.
"This," he exclaimed, "is not conserva
tion; it is waste criminal waste."
Beveridge declared that the forests of
Michigan had been "ruthlessly slaughter
ed to put more money into the already
bulging pockets of private owners." He
contended the general public should have
had some of the benefits of these returns
from their own property.
Replying to Beveridge. Xelson declared
that the leasing provision of the bill had
been drawn by someone utterly ignorant
of conditions in Alaska.
Beveridge replied that the bill was a
mere abbreviation of an earlier bill In
troduced by Nelson himself. The amend
ment was voted down. The bill was then

crashed Into three freight cars which

entirely telescoped and the passenger
engine badly wrecked.
The killed are Thomas G. Kenhey
and one unknown man.

the engine toppled over to the west side
of the track, and both men climbed out

Preparations Under Way for Harvest
in Southeastern Washington.
DAYTON, Wash., June 15. (Special.)
With continued favorable weather, har
vest will begin in Southeastern Washing,
ton by the middle of next month. Owing
to the fact that more machinery will be
used this year than ever before and the
prospects for a light yield of Spring bar
ley, harvest is expected to be shorter
than ever before. That farm hands wiu
be scarce when grain cutting starts is the
belief of leading Dayton farmers, many
of whom are already seeking specialists
such as separator tenders, engineers and
combine harvester men. .
It may be found necessary materially to
Increase the wage scale for harvest hands
in order to get enough men to take care
of the crops. In view of the demand in
other parts of the Northwest. Hay har
vest began around Dayton this week and
men are reported scarce for this work.
