REASONS FOR A GREAT NAVY
lergan Withdraws Opposition to
Statehood and Canal Zone BUI,
and Conferees Are Ap
pointed at Last. ,
WASHINGTON, Feb. 25. Some sharp
criticism of the President's policy to
wards Santo Domingo and in enlarging
the Navy was indulged in today by
Senators on both sides during the de
bate on the Naval appropriation bill.
The contest over the choice of con
ferees on the statehood bill came to a
tudden end. and they were appointed
both for that bill and for the Panama
Canal Zone government bil after Mor
gan had explained his position in re
gard to both bills.
Immediately after convening the
chair announced the appointment of Kltt-
redge. milliard and Morgan as conferees
on the canal bill. Morgan promptly de
clined, saying that his advocacy of the
House provision regarding the canal com
missioners was such that he could not
undertake to represent the position of the
Senate. Ho was excused and Gorman ap
pointed in his stead.
The statehood bill being laid before
th Seriate, Morgan said:
"Yesterday 1 took the floor at an em
barrassing time and under what were to
me embarrassing circumstances. I had
supposed that those who had supported
the House bill were to continue their op
position at the time, but I had not been
long speaking when I found myself in
neral-antagonism to my friends.
"I had expressed my views on the con
stitutional features of the bill when it
was before the Senate, but had not had
any opportunity to discuss its suffrage
features. I was anxious to express my
views on that point, and having done so,
1 shall not proceed further."
Morgan had scarcely ceased speaking
when the chair made his announcement
of conferees on the statehood bill, desig
nating Beverldge, Nclnon and Bate.
Hale's Sarcasm at Monroeism.
After the proceedings In the Swayne
case, the Naval appropriation bill was

cized the increased appropriation for

explanation from Hale, in charge of

moderate one so far as Increases were

England for more than a contury and
that its navy had been ita Instrument.
"That," he added, "must be the pollcy

for that purpose; such also is tho case
wnen we want to take possession of
tho revenues of a sister republic.
"The Senator from Maryland does not
appreciate the Navy as an auxiliary
to a great power," said he. He recurred
to the marine corps at Panama and
said that if there had been two regi
ments at the critical time there would
have been no war.
Gorman expressed interest in the out
line of the situation.
Hale had meant to call special atten
tion to the fact that the conditions
pointed out wero those prevailing in
England and he added that, if it is our

ment of other powers, we must expect
to do so every etep.

"No doubt," remarked Gorman, "we
are well embarked on that policy not
only in the charactor of additions to
the Navy, but in its policy of taking
possession ol weak neighbors as? rap
idly as public sentiment will permit us
to do ?o." He said the United States
had gone beyond England in becoming
guardian of small neighbors and the
collecting of their revenue?. He was
prepared to say that, if this policy is
to be pursued, the present Navy Is a

VOTE ON SWAYNE CASE MONDAY
Senate Hears Closing Arguments and
Arranges Order of Voting.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 25. The Senato to
day heard the concluding arguments on
both sides in the Swayne impeachment
case, ex-Senator Thurston speaking for
Mr. Swayne. After dlscuss-lon for almost
two hours in secret session, an order to
vote Monday morning at 10 o'clock was
made. The voting will be on the articles
separately, and will continue until all
have been passed upon.
At 10 o'clock the Impeachment trial was
resumed, and ae soon as a quorum could
be sacured. Thurston began his argu
ment. Early as the hour was the gal
leries were well filled, and Thurston re
ceived close attention.
"1 t.ta.nd here." he said In beginning
his address, "to raise the last voice
ever to be heard between this t me and
the tjme when tho Judgment of God
shall be pronounced In support of the
personal honor end tho official integ
rity of Charles Swayne. the respondent
at this bar."
Thurston contended that a Judge
cannot be Impeached for a crime
against a state law disconnected with
! his official duties, and referring to tno
J first seven articles of impeachment, he
declared that In ordinary court tiwy
would be barred by statutes of limita
tion and must be hero. Referring to
the charge of using private cars, no
"There are reasons why the mantle
of charity should be drawn about
transactions of that kind by public
On the point of residence, Thurston
said that if Judge Swayne did not
make his home at Penswcola he had no
home anywhere. He explained his pro-
i longed and frequent absences by
year the Judge was engaged in hold
ing court In other states. He tracod
the present prosecution to the Belden
Davis contempt cane, declaring that a
conspiracy to depose the Judge had
grown out of it and extended until It
reached its present stage. He Justified
the punishment In the Belden-Davis
case- and in tho O'Neal case. With an
appeal for vindication and acquittal,
Thurston closed at 12:40 P. M.. after
speaking two hours and a half.

that while there was no legal require

on Foraker's Amendment.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 25. It Is exiwotod
that the first meeting of the conferees on

There arc now so many differences to
harmonize that conferences will bo held
continuously between members of tho

is reached .or It Is demonstrated that jio
agreement can be hoped for.
Senator Bev-cridgc said today that the
conferees would earnestly try to get the
two houses together, but he could prom

House factions have given notice that
the one-state idea, that Is. the admissldn
of Oklahoma and Indian Territory alone,
is not to be thought of. As the matter
now stands, the Foraker amendment Is
looked upon as the only basis of com

DESERT NO LONGER
Snake River Will Be Turned
on Vast Arid Area;
FORTUNES BURIED If ITS BED.
Completion of Great irrigation En
terprise in Idaho Will Be Marked
by Rush of Gold-Seekers
to the Canyon.
SALT LAKE CITY. Utah. Feb. 23.-(5pe-clal.)
The greatest Irrigation project In
the world, excepting the gigantic en
gineering 'enterprise of the English gov
ernment, by which tho Valley of the Nile
It to be redeemed, is to see the beginning
of ita fruition Wednesday, when the great
Snake Hirer, in Southern Idaho. Is to be
stayed In Its,-vourse and Its waters di
verted toward the reclamation of 271,000
acres of laid now as arid and desolate as
the great -wastes of the Desert o Sahara.
The (ill attainment of the object of the
enterprise will mean the conversion of a
vast tract of -rolling prairie Into an area
Of rich productive soil, which will furnish
encugh fruit, grain and. vegetables to
supply the entire Northwest country, be
sides a considerable quantity of foodstuffs
for China and Japan.
Thousands Will Seek Gold.
Simultaneously with the staying of the
waters of the Snake River will begin one
of the most spectacular struggles ever
seen among men for sudden wealth.
Thousands of fortune-seekers already are
waiting . along the brink of the canyon
for the river bed to be exposed for more
than 20 miles of its length. For years it
has been tho accepted belief that gold in
Inexhaustible quantities lies in the bot
tom of the river, yet the most daring
miners have been unable to cope with the
physical obstacles to an exploration of
this supposed treasure ground. Scores of
men have met death while striving to de
scend the steep walls of the canyon, ris
ing as high as 60 feet above the river, a
raging, roaring torrent.
Not more than three da3 will be at the
disposal of the fortune-hunters, for in
that time it is estimated by tho en
gineers that tho great reservoir will have
filled and the water will again be pouring
through the caii5'on In diminished volume,
but still too great In quantity for placer
mining or any other form of gold-seeking.
Enterprise Will Pay Millions.
Thus far the Twin Falls Land & Water
Company has invested Jl.COO.OOO without
any returns. The members of the com
pany are of the belief, however, that they
will have recovered their Investment
within the coming two years, and within
five years they expect to clear up several
million dollars. Money already is pouring
in from settlers, and the promoters say
they have disposed of nearly every home
stead lot in their domain of 271,000 acres.
Hundreds of buildings are in course of
erection nil over the proposed Irrigation
area, which tho company proposes to in
crease by adding 150,000 acres of land in
a short time.
The development of the plateau already
is well under way in anticipation of the
blossoming of tho irrigation area. A big
beot-sugar factory is to be erected at
Twin Falls by a Cleveland millionaire
named Shaw, which will employ 400 men
all the tlnv. A railroad connecting with
