tary of War Root went before, the sen
ate committee on military affairs today
and made a strong presentation In be
half of General Wood. He denounced
the attacks as spiteful and based on no
foundation. He said all fcpeelflc. charges
had been Investigated by officers : of the
war department! as well' ai by President
McKlnley, and that the latter, caused his
promotion for distinguished " service
alone. He then sketched Wood's career
in the army.' -:V--..;;" V. ':. '-.ryi'V-'
Those who- listened to-the presenta
tions made by the secretary' were Im
pressed with his earnestness In uphold
ing the position of the president and
the .administration during the, Spaniel
American war. ,5 I ' i ' -
Senator Hanna. it ,1s said., fully an
ticipated the -position to be taken by
Koot, and Is even more, hopeful than
ever that nothing more than what la
' due Wood will be j given bim by the
. American people.' !; ,.'
When Senator Bpooner at last gained
the floor of the senate, he delivered a
speech which was highly impressive. "At
one point, amid a profound silence,' he
said In a " low, deliberate voice-f rt
seems but yesterday that denunciation
was hear here of the whtte-faeed,!-lent.
patient man who was then president-
of the; United .States because- ho
was not ' willing to declare war with
Spain with that haste deemed necessary.
Having been a soldier himself and know
ing the horrors of . such a conflict he
merely desired to. exhaust all , the re
sources of diplomacy In his effort to
avoid It There-was even a suggestion
heard-here thai veertaln --motives :gov
erned his i action." Continuing ; the
dramatic recital he said that he hoped
no foreign government iould detect' a
sinister design In that resolution ask
ing for the annexation of Cuba offered
by the senator from Nevada. He de
clared the taking of Cuba to ourselves
would have been a criminal aggression
'and contended that the war was waged
from a humanitarian - standpoint and
that the future acts of this country
should be of the ssme high plane.

Charge Against the Eddy
Law by William II.

CAN'T AFFORD THE TAX
Result Is, He" Says, ThanheState

; Suggests a Graduated Tax on v;
" " Paying Properties. ;
'".William' H. Dodge, assistant secretary
of the Oregon Miners' association, which
is11 leading the movement' to have : the
coming special session of- the legislature
repeal the Eddy - corporation - tax law
so far as it applies to' mining corpora
tions of the state, said today:
) "Th action of thii executive commit
tee of the association in deciding to lead
this proposed repeal Is based on the fact
that the tax,, so. .far as It affects most
mining "men '"and !' propositions In ;tha
state, is a handicap to their successful
development. Thereare numerous mi
ners in the state who have excellent min
ing prospects but who cannot pay the
tax. Later, when their rnlnes are devel
oped and are profitable, they would make
no objection to the tax. . Many, mines in
Oregon are owned by farmers and small
land ' holders, and other by deserving
men and honest miners, who work In' the
winter time at cutting wood, or any .em
ployment they can get. In order to make
money enough to develop, their mines In
the- summer.' 4 The law requires 1100
worth of work, to ba done on each claim
every year (n order to hold them, and
some miner have from one to half a
doien claims or more. You can see how
the Eddy law works a hardship on many
deserving miners and excellent prospects
To. the State's Interest to Help.
" "In some of the mining states esst of
Oregon." he continued, "the law requires
the payment of only a nominal,- original
charter fee, and an increasing tax year
bjr year as the mine develops and be
comes a . paying - property.. Something
Ilka that, or a reduction of the tax to $ 5
and 111 is what a great majority of
theminlng'men of this State desire. We
think that It Js as much to the interest
of the state to assist in the development
of these properties "by removing a tsx
that Js found burdensome, as it is to the
Individual." ;t . ' . -

Dr. CF. Candlanl, the Italian consul
for Portland, lrf a member of the execu
tive committee of the .Miners' associa
tion. He Bald today: -
"We'want to get this tax on mining
corporations, reduced because It is re
stricting' the mining wealth of the In
dividual .ana tne state. J iie tax is too
much of a burden for most of the miners
to carry. '-We think our demands might
to be so considered by the legislature on
the 'showing that it is proposed -to make
when the special session" meets."
Dr. Candlanl is Interested In mining
property lit, the state.
' A lobby at Balam. - i.
No effort. It is said; has yet been made
to Influence .the member of the legisla

Up to a late bour this afternoon no
word had been received at tneldcaI of
ftoe from the Oriental liner Indrapura,
which was due to, arrive at .Victoria, B.
C, four days ago.. Jt Is, how considered
very probable, that slie haa encountered
a series of, storms of. unusual severity.
She sailed from Yokohama on November
26 and was expected to reach Victoria
December 13. It Js very,, seldom that
more than 17 days are required to make
the passage. Upon : her arrival at the
Canadian port the Indrapura will disem
bark a number of passengers and then
proceed down the coast to the Columbia
river, ' --,
If she should be delayed at the bar as
was the Indravelll, which is loaded for
the outward voyage, the Indrapura will
not ' reach Portland for a week or two
yet. The Indravelll left down the river
a week" ago yesterday, and she Is still
lying at Astoria barbound. ; If the river's
mouth does not calm down' soon a couple
of Oriental liners loaded to their full

best not to attempt to cross In. She re

this morning. -,'.
The bar has- given more trouble ' td
