more troops will lie brought.
Joseph Leiter reached Zeigler today

House Committee Looks After
Rivers and Harbors.
COLUMBIA RIVER IN HIGH FAVOR
Gassed as One of the Most Import
ant Improvements Will Be
Taken Care of rirst.
Washington, Nov. 30, The house
committee on rivers and harbors held a
preliminary meeting today to prepare a
bill which will be ready for presenta
tion to the house befoie the Christmas
lecess. The mean-ire was discussed
only in a general way, but an agree
ment was reached that the more im
portant projecta would be taaen care cf
Orel by the committee and the less im
portant afterward. Representative
Jones, of Washington, will look after
the lntnesta of the Columbia liver, the
Improvumeut of which means so much
to l ia MtSfctmts in ,WaAliii)gton.
Mermen of the committee who were
seen ioday were of the opinion that the
Columbia project properly cauiu within
the classification of important, and it
will be among those considered first.
Mr. Jones was present today. In ad
dition to caring for the Columbia liver
work, Mr. Jones will control to large
degree appropriat ons for improvements
in the state of Washington,
It baa been definitely determined
that a river and harbor bill shall be
parsed at the approaching session of
congress. Chairman Burton decided to
get hia committee together in advance
of the convening of congress, ao as to
complete work on the bill and have it
ready to present to the house just be
fore the holiday recess. Once the bill
is called kup in the house it will take
but a short time to get it through that
body, and it will go through in practi
cally the shape in which the committee
In the senate, however, there is likely
to be considerable discussion of various
fuatuies of the measure, and there is
apt, before the bill rsachca the aenate,
to be considerable discussion and
amendment by the senate committee.
The aenate will, of course, pans the
bill about as it cornea from the com
mittee on commerce, with probably a
few amenmdetna, increasing individual
appropriations. Then It will be a
question of holding the aenate increases
in the bill, and this will have to be
done by the combin-nl efforts of the
various members of delegations whose
states are interested.

high naval officers as a member of that
body. The outxeme ia especially pleas

as it does ao closely on President
