Debated Four Hours actual settlers Headquarters of the National Asso- j elation were established at the city i hall, where the assistant 'secretary gress nio opposed to tho resolution. So far there Imb boon no resolu turn introduced asking for govern ment appropriation to aid in the work of reclamation. Tho sentiment seems to be to allow the West to vo claim herself. The nearest, approach to this, was tho address of Senator Burton, of Kansas, who advocated tho storage of water by tho govern ment, to prevent Hoods, and said heavy costs would accrue, anil that tho scheme came properly under the head of the reclamation department. The address of Booth Tucker, on 'Colonization," wns the ablest speech yet delivered beforo the congress. Senator Gibson, of Montana, read nn able paper on the repeal of tho des ert land and timber and stone land acts, but ho treated the subject from a legal standpoint. One of tho brightest men in the congress Is Congressman Frank Mun- dell, of Wyoming, who defended the desert land act In an ablo address, Wednesday afternoon. Twenty Men In Evidence. About 20 men transnct the business of tho congress, make all tho speeches, and go on tho record of tho besslon. 'Tho 925 delegates aro not heard, oxcopt In tho caucuses of the state delegations.

Tl " fr Marlon "wiaiure. and 1. til u Washington, Sept. 19. A cable gram dated the 17th, was received today from Minister Beaupre, at Bo gota. There Is no change in-the situ ation as to the discussion. The canal question Is apparently in a hopeless state, and probably the Colombian congress may not adjourn before Oc tober 20. Favorable Indications. Robert Farnuni, representing Panama Canal Company, the state department this morning a bhort time after Beaupre's message was received. This, taken in connec tion with Minister visit last evening, leads to the belief that an euoit will be made without, if not within, the state department, to bring the canal affair to a successful termination, despite the adverse action of tho Co lombian congress. It Is known that .Mr. Herran re ceived dispatches from his govern ment whl h ho communicated to the state department, but the utmost so crccy provails. It is understood that demands upon the Panama Company by Colombia have fallen from $10, 000,000 to $3,000,000, which it is pos Bible tho Pnnama Company may ac cept. This, which would mean the ratification of the treaty beforo Tues day next, the date when It expires by limitation. So far the company of ficials say thoy will not permit what they declare to be a plain rase of hold-up. a momentous question. Veterans Divided. Veteran Irrigatlonlsts are divided on the subject, and no political lines 1 were visible In the debate. It is t the I simply a matter of difference of lion- called at est opinion. Eloquence, logie, repar tee, wit, humor, learning and states manship marked the course of the debate. Giants clashed in brilliant argument. A five-minutes' recess was taken for the states to caucus. Pandemon ium was turned loose. Enthusiasm on both sides worked furiously. Compromise Adopted. Tile vote when finally taken stood 212 for tho substitute and 148 against. Oregon voted 16 for the substitute and four against. Colo rado, Idaho, Utah, Kansas, New Mex ico and Wyoming were solid for tho substitute. California, Texas, Ne vada and Nebraska were divided.' Montana and Minnesota wero solid against tlio substitute, both favoring repeal. An Excursion Today. About one-half the delegates went on the Cache Valley excursion today. Many will stay over for tho Salt I-ake City excursion Sunday. Professor Suicides. Columbus, Sept. 19. Frederick Clark, professor of economics and sociology In tho Ohio state universi ty, committed suicide this morning by shooting. Tailors on a Strike. Cleveland. O., Sept. 19. Throe hundred tailors struck this morning for the recognition of the union, Five hundred more are expected to strike. AN IDEAL PLACE. North Pioneer Irrigation Works in America Were In Utah. Ogden Sept. 16 No more inspiring place than this in which to hold an Irrigation congress could have been seloctcd. Utah is the birthplace of George II. Maxwell, of Chicago, Sena systematic Irrigation. Surrounding 1 tor Iteed Smoot, of Utah, Governor the state deaf, dumb and blind instl tutlon, near Ogden, Thursday, and a free excursion to Cache Valley, Utah Friday. In fact, thero 1b too much amusement to permit of a rapid posal of the business of the conven tlon. Much complaint Is heard of tho slow movement of the congress and many delegates left the second day, Six Hundred Disfranchised. The committee on credentials did not report until Wednesday after noon at 3 o'clock. Thoy seated 945 delegates, but only allowed 346 votes in the congress. Tho constitution provides that no state shall cast moro than 20 votes, and COO delegates to the convention are disfranchised. Tho commltteo 011 resolutions has received over 300 resolutions, vary Ing In length from 10 to B,000 words, and It has tho most gigantic task of any of the committees before it, All resolutions aro referred to tho committee without debate, and tho fight will be precipitated when time comes to adopt Its report. So far, tho resolutions presented have been of a progressive and liberal charac ter. The most important ono so far Introduced is one by George H. Max well to repeal the timber and stone act, the desert land act and the com mutation clause of the homestead law. This one will cause the hardest fight of the congress, as the most in fluential and able men of the associ ation aie divided on the question. Line Up on the Issue, Senator Paris Gibson, of Montana, Ogden lies one of tho most versatile and productive regions In the world. All the glorious array of Irrigated products Is set before the members of the congress as an evidence of the Morrison, of Idaho, and Pardee, of California, are all. In favor of the re peal, while tho Wyoming congress men, Senator Newlands, of Nevada, and other able members of the con- His Last Appearance Before This Was In Northern Georgia, After Escaping Four Months Ago From the Nashville, Tenn., Jail. Chinook, Mont., Sept. 19. That Kid Curry, tho noted ban. lit twl train robber, who escaped from Knoxvlllo Jail sovernl months ago, U again in his old haunts In Northern Montana, where his gang held up the Great Northern limited near Malta, about two years ago, securing $13, 000, Is believed to bo a fact. The Hon, James T. Moran, onn of tho . prominent stockmen of this county, today notified tho authorities that Curry, whom he knows, called nt his ranch nt Granite at midnight last Tuesday night, and compiled him to saddle a horso for him. Cur ry told Moran that ho had Just como form Havro and had dropped off a freight. A number of strnngerB have appearl In the section about Chin ook, and It is supposed that they aro Plnkertons looking for the doHitern do. Is Succeeded by Premier Balfour The Incident Is Regarded as a Triumph for the Opponents of a High Tariff, and Indicates the Downfall of the Tory Party. Dundee, Sept. ill,- The Advertiser today announces that the Karl of Salisbury, lord high chancellor In the British cabinet, will Khortly resign because of 111 health. Ho will prob ably be succeeded by Attorney-Gen eral FIndlny, who Is now conducting England's case before tho Alaskan boundary commission. Colonial Secretary Out. I.ondon, .Sept. I'.i. -Consternation and excitement caused by thn an nouncement of Joseph Chamberlain's resignation as colonial secretary pre vailed among all classes In the United Kingdom. Tho Pall Mall Gazette this afternoon apparently sums up tho general feeling by describing the present crisis ns the "most extraor dinary In tho whole history of tho constitutional government," adding that what will happen next no one enn forecast with any degieo of ab solute certainty. The liberal organs, though an uounclng "the wreck of tho tory party," nearly all agree that Mr. Chamberlain's resignation does not mean a victory for free trade. Chamberlain Is succeeded by Pro mier Balfour, who has been lender of t!u opposition. Llpton Improving. Chicago, Sept. 19. Sir Thomas Lipton continues to Improve, hut Is secluded by his physicians.
