A furious opposition
developed and by a roll call a large ma­

into the Payne bill, and it was with

Stop Creating Reserves and
O rder General Survey.
Washington, D. C., Feb. 16.— Sena­
tor Heyburn is going after the presi­
dent's forest reserve policy agaiq. T. -
day he introduced a bill far more dras­
tic than anything he has heretofore at­
It prohibits further with­
drawals of public land for forest reserve
purposes in Idaho, and stipulates that
where laud has heretofore been with­
drawn, and baa not been created into
forest reserves, it shall immediately he
restored to the public domain. It also
provides that no reserve or withdrawal
made for forestry purposes in Blaho
shall include sections 16 or 36, title to
which was in the United States at the
date of the admission of Idaho into the
It further stipulates that no
forest reserves shall be created in Idaho
to include land heretofore classified as
The effect of this bill, if enacted,
would be absolutely to put a stop to
forest reserve extension in Idaho, but,
like Mr. Heyburn’ s other forestry
bills, it w ill not pass.
Mr. Heyburn also introduced a hill
appropriating $100,000 for the survey
of all unsurveyed public land in Idaho.
Mr. Heyburn says Idaho’ s development
is being retarded by reason of the fact
that only one-third of the state has
been surveyed. Furthermore, the lack
of surveys makes it impossible for the
state to perfect many of its selections
made under various special grants.
Wednesday, February 14.
Wednesday, Feb. 14. — At a few
minutes after 6 o’ clock today the senate
cast its final ballot on the subsidy ship­
ping bill, which was passed by a vote
of 38 to 27. All the votes for the hill
were by Republican senators, and five
Republican senators voted with the
Demorcats in opposition.
They were
Burkett, Dolliver, La Follette, Spooner
and Warner. The vote on the bill was
preceded by action on a number of
amendments, and this by an entire day
of debate.
Many important amend­
ments were accepted, but only in one
case was a modification agreed to that
was not in accordance with the wishes
of the managers of the b ill. The excep­
tion was on an amendment offered by
Spooner eliminating the provision g iv ­

Many Troops and War Vessels
Close to China.
M ore Troop s In Philippines Than Any
Tim e Since Pacification o f
the Islands.
Washington, Feb. 17. — It has been
decreed by the administration that,
come what may, American lives and
American property in China shall he
protected, even if it becomes necessary
to resort to arms. Guided by the ex­
periences of the boxer outbreak of
1900, this government is quietly mo­
bilizing a small army in the P h ilip ­
pines, within easy reach of Chinese
ports, and is maintaining a fair-sized
fleet oi war vessels especially adapted
to service in the rivers that reach im
portant Chinese strongholds.
It is a fact that there are more
troops in the Philippines than at any
time since the pacification of the Phi -
ippints. There are now on the way to
the islands two additional regiments of
infantry and two batteries of artillery.
As shown by the records of the War
department, the m ilitary strength in
the Philippines today includes four full
regiments of infantry, in addition to
two companies of engineers and tliree
companies of the signal corps.
troops for the most part are in easy
reach of Manila, and a comparatively
large force could be landed on Chinese
soil on very short notice and still leave
an adequate garrison in the Philippines.
To supplement the land force is the
Philippine fleet, which includes the
battlesnips Ohio, Wisconsin and Ore­
gon, the last-named under orders to re­
turn to this country.

Fulton Declares Boycott Cannot A c­
complish Its Repeal.
Washington, Feb. 17. — In response
to a request for his views on the Chi­
nese boycott, Senator Fulton today
made the following answer;
Tiie real purpose of the Chinese en­
gaged in the boycott of American goods
is to secure tiie repeal of the exclusion
law. No doubt the manner in which
the law has been enforced has in some
instances civen just cause for com­
plaint, and tended to intensify and ac­
celerate the growing resentment en­
gendered by tiie law. hut the real ani­
mus is opposition to tiie law as a whole
and the purpose is to enforce its repeal.
To that we cannot accede. It is of great
interest, and concern to us that cordial
and friendly relations with Cfiina shall
be maintained and our trade and com­
merce with tier increased, but, if such
conditions can only be purchased by
sacrificing the rights and imperiling
the welfare of Americaan labor, the
price is greater than we can afford to
W e most not repeal or substantially
modify the present exclusion law. So
to do would work great Eiardship on
and be unpardonable injustice to our
own wage earners. We of the Pacific
coast have learned in tEie school of ex­
perience tiow serious a menace to the
peace, prosperity and morals of the
community is a large influx of Chinese
coolies and we will never consent to
legislation making Buch
again possible.
