Washington. Nov. .-the democrat
lc steering committee of the senate
was In session for two hours today, the
gi eater part of which time was devoted
to consideration of the situation ou me
Isthmus. A number of Senators ex
pressed the opinion that the admlnls
tratlon had not been unfriendly to nor
ignorant of the movement from Its be
ginning, but it was decided to wan un
til there is further light on the question
before ifUvWug democrats to take a
position. Some senators expressed the
opinion that the mass of people are so
anxious to secure a canal that many
pensons would eveti endorse a revolu

advocated a vigorous policy of criti

REPORT IS DENIED.
Washington, Nov. 9. Reports were
current tonight to the effect that an

might yet be resumed with Colombia.

department of Panama and the estab

cabinet officer' tonight that no official
representations of the- character re

heretofore repeatedly, the Hay-Harran

While In Tacoma recently W. W.
Whipple learned from an authentic
source that the line of the proffosed
railway lown the north bank of tbe
Columbia wilt be resurveyed In a very
short time and that the work of build'
Ing the road will begin in March. The
tine, a branch of the Northern Pacific,
will operate between Vancouver and
the mouth of the Columbia, and will be
finished within two years.
Mr. Whipple has no doubt that the
line will actually be built and believes
that its operation will result beneHc
ially to this section as Veil as the terri
tory to be traversed. Ilwaco, the pro
posed terminus, gives promise of grow-
ing and an awakening process, the pro
gressive Astorlan believes, will set In
all along the line. .

today held its first session, and, except
for naming committees, which will fol

Joseph Q. Cannon, of Illinois, was for

from democrats and republicans alike
when he took up the gavel of authority,

the president of the presence of a quo

The drawing of seats. In which old

the day session.
A pretty compliment was paid to the
leaders, veterans on both sides, in this
connection, they being permitted to se
lect their seats without drawing lots.
Several bills were Introduced in the
house today. The statehood bill for
New Mexico, Introduced by Delegate
Rodney, has the distinction of being

The temperance lecture given under
the auspices of the W. C. T. U. at the
First Methodist church last evening
was undoubtedly the most thorough
and exhaustive exposition of that im
portant subject ever given In the city.
That is because Miss Lillian Phelps
had not addressed an Astoria audience
before. "It Is not the use or abuse but
the nature of the stuff," said Miss
Phelps, and along that line her remarks
were delivered. There were no hair
raising stories ior lucid denunciations
Indulged In, but the whole address con.
slsted of a heart to heart talk that ap
pealed to the speaker's hearers In a
way that kept them spell bound while
she talked and made them sorry when
she ceased. No one left the house dur
ing the discourse and all were glad
that they ,vere there. Miss Phelps ex
pressed her shocked feelings regarding
the wide open condition of Portland

Every Sunday a big crowd of men and
