WASHINGTON, June 7. After trans

senate resumed consideration today of

of Oregon, conUnued his pech begun
Thursday In opposition to the Panamu,
route. After considering the engineer
ing difficulties of the route, which he
regarded as very serious. He entered
upon a denunciation of the methods
of the Panama ?anal Company, which
he declared was the most corrupt In
the history of the world. He warned
congress that no surer -ay could be
found to defeat the construction cf any
canal than to adopt the Spooner
amendment, as the United State could
have no connection with the Panama
route without beco.nlng Involved in in
tricacies of French adventurers, from

Mitchell expnwed the opinion that
the enactment of the Spooner amend
ment would result in a postponemint
of the beginning of the canal project,
as the president would probably have
to make indesicndent investigation ot
the subject Wore he could pass upon
It. He urged congress to, assunne the
responsibility of detiarin? k route an4
not turn that responsibility ever to
