Auditor of the Treasury. Dr. William
B. Derrick stated the objects of tne del
egation, and presented the resolutions
adopted at the recent mass meeting at
Cooper Union. In replying the Presi
dent explained just how far he could
exercise his authority under the consti
tution, stating very clearlv the difference
between the State and Federal authority
in regard to crimes committed in any
particular State. The President advised

In anticipation of the passage by the
House ot the river and harbor bill Sen
ator Squire is strenuously urging upon
the Senate Committee on Commerce the
necessity for speedy action upon his bill
to appropriate fooo.uuo to begin the con
struction of a canal (which will uiti
mately cost $2,500,000) to connect the
waters of Lake Union and Lake Wash
ington with Puget Sound. The commit
tee will report favorably upon the bill,
and at the instance of Senator Squire
will incorporate it as an amendment to
the river and harbor bill when that
measure reaches the Senate. The prin
cipal objection is said to come from Sen
ator Dolph, who fears Congress cannot
be induced to embark upon another pro
ject of this magnitude without interfer
ence with the scope of the Columbia
river improvements, but Senator Squire
feels he has secured a majority ot the
Committee on Commerce for the project.

sentative of this government, spent a

made elaborate private reports of his
mission. He is now in Washington,
and is a frequent visitor to the State
and Treasury Departments. It is said
the reports received from the different
countries satisfied the President of the
advisability of an international confer
ence. He has practically decided to take
the initiative in the matter, and it is
understood tbat be will soon send a spe
cial message to Congress transmitting
the correspondence oa the subject.
