Washington, Jan. 8.—The senate to-
today gave attention to the Panama
canal, the situation in Santo Domingo
and the merchant marine ahippiing
The canal bill question came up in
connection with a message from the
president, in which, among other
things, he invited the closest scrutiny
into all that bad been done by the gov
ernment in the Isthmua of Panama.
Gorman made that utterance the text
for a speech, in which he criticised the
salariée paid for work in connection
with the canal, and urged congreasion-
al inquiry. He mid that the president

been made when congress released its
hold upon canal affairs.
with Gorman in urging the rights of
congress in connection with the canal,
and mid that, while congress had dele
gated the matter to the president, the
latter practically had referred the
whole matter back to congress.
The senate took up the merchant
marine shipping bill and Gallinger
spoke in support of that measure.
Quoting the utterances of Presidents
McKinley and Rooeevelt on the im
portance of building np the merchant
marine, he nrged congress to heed these
admonitions by passing a law that
would relieve the situation.
Gallinger estimated that the aggre
gate expense to the government for the
entire ten years of the proposed sub
sidies would be $40,000,000, and that
the amount being devoted to the en
couragement of irrigation is many

still further limited.
