WASHINGTON, Sept. 4. For many
hours again today Senator Burton con

Showing no signs of yielding in his
filibuster against the measure, the
Ohio Senator assailed item after item.
Projects in many sections of the coun
try, he asserted, were proposed merely
to antagonize railroad competition.
"You would erect monuments of
folly," said Senator Burton, "in the
shape of locks and dams just to force
the railroads to lower rates in certain
localities, forgetting that as you force
their rates in interior sections where
there is no water competition, it is a
waste of Government money."
