MITCHELL HEAD OF ISTHMIAN
Washington Bureau of The Journal Washington. Deo. 9 Senator Mitchell when asked today said that th
matter of th chairmanship of th Isthmian canal committee was practically settled and that he would be given the
Th lata Senator Hanna was formerly th chairman of that committee. Since hla death Senator Piatt of New
Tork has been In the direct line of promotion to th chairmanship and In th ordinary run of thing would get th
billet. Bat Senator Piatt ha been disinclined to give up his chairmanship of the committee on printing. Besides
this his health ha not been robust. It waa generally believed that the managing men of the senate were not favor
ably disposed to letting th chairmanship of th lntcroceanlo canal come to th Pacific coast. .
In all th senate there waa no more Important appointment for there are no other such stupendous under
taking now befor the people. It la a position that carries with It much work and great responsibilities, but
at th eume time great prestige. And ao It waa not considered desirable that It should go at this time, when
Its Importance Is at its senlfn, to a. western man.
Ever sine the death of Mr. Hanna It has been freely atated that pressure would be brought to bear upon
Senator Piatt to remain nominally at the head of the committee If he did nothing else. Evidently he ha de
clined to do this, judging from th expression of Senator Mitchell.
Th Oregon senator should be well equipped for the chairmanship of this Important committee. He ha been
a consistent advocate of an Interoeeanlo canal for year and haa made many apeechea on the aubject and apent much
time In collecting data. It is true that he waa an advocate of the Nlcaraguan route and strenuously upheld that
position upon every reasonable occasion. But when Panama waa fixed upon beyond recall the queatlon of a
canal become of mora Importance than the mere queatlon of which of two route should be chosen for It, and
Senator Mitchell bowed to th will of the majority.
Owing to the amount of attention which he haa devoted to the aubjeot of canal he I generally regarded
as unusually wall qualified for th position of chairman of th Interoeeanlo canal.
