Waterloo Daily Courier (Newspaper) - July 3, 1906, Waterloo, Iowa LAKGEST BONA FIDH OF ANT PAPER IN WATERLOO. ER: INDICATIONS. .J, Chicago, III., July Fair tonight and Wednesday. SIXTEENTH YEAK. WATERLOO, TUESDAY EVENING, ,JULV 1906. NO. 4853 NEWS FROM WASHINGTON ranama Canal Bonds Expected-to Bring Good Price. Senator Allison's Absence From Senate Was Felt. White House in Need of Repairs. Other Capital News. Washington, D. C., July early announcement is expected from PresS- jdont Roosevelt as to the make up of the interstate commerce commission under the new rate law. Iowa will probably he represented by E. E. Clark of fJedar of the Order of Rail- way Conductors. J. S. Harlan of Illi- nois will probably be added to the commission, anil it is learned from high authority 'that Mr. Harlan will probably be made chairman. There has been much talk of two oth- er Iowa men for membership 011 this commission, Col. W..P. Hepburn and ex-Governor Larrabee. Representative Hepburn was the choice of a large number of the members of the house for this place and ex-Governor Larra- bee has many friends who would like ,to see him nominated. The chief dif- ficulty in the way, is that neither Colonel Hepburn nor Mr. Lar- rabee desirps to be appointed to the In a letter to a friend here some time ago ex-Governor Lar- rabee definitely put ftimself out of the race and in discussing the subject yes- terday; Colonel Hepburn said that he did not want a place on the commis- sion and would not accept air appoint- ment thereto. He regards the duties of members of'this commission as ardu- ous and at his time of life has no de- sire to take them upon himself: The appointment of Mr. Clark has not been officially announced, but it is generally understood that it is decided on. Presi- dent Roosevelt has been friendly to Mr. Clark since he served on tire com- mission that arbitrated the'coal strike about three years ago. Franklin Lane of California has been confirmed as a member of the commis- sion and Knapp, Prouty, Cockrell and Clements will be retained. Allison Absent. Washington, D. C., July has developed that the absence ot" Senator Allison from the senate was the cliief cause of the difficulty of Saturday, whereby there was a delay in adojurn7 ment .and much irritation over the de- lay. Senator his'years of experience, has acquired perfect famil- iarity with appropriation measures. There was delay and friction such as would never have been noticed if Sen- ator Allison had been in charge. This friction led to sharp criticisms of the government printing office. Not .all of this was deserved, and -had Senator Allison been present there is not the slightest doubt that things would have passed much more smoothly. Thomas P. Cleaves, clerk of the ap- propriations committee, has received ti letter from L. J. Neely, Senator Alli- son's private secretary, saying that Senator Allison 'was gaining strength rapidly since reaching Iowa. His ap- petite is improving and he is showing many signs of regaining the best of health. Leaving Washington. Washington, D. C., July Iowa members generally have left, the city. Colonel Hepburn and Representative Cousins were the only members of the delegation remaining here yesterday. Senator Dolliver has gone to New York and alter a few days' rest will depart J'or Iowa. Colonel Hepburn will depart for Iowa Friday ami will spend the summer at his home in Clarinda. A Jloon to Keokulc. Washington, O. C.. July sentative Hepburn discussed the bill whereby the Keokuk and Hamilton W'aler Power company, which is to build a dam at Kookuk, is the right' to condemn such land as it needs for its 'project. This measure is ono of general application and clothes power companies with authority to condemn land in such cases. t Colonel Hepburn said that the bil.l that was passed insured the construction the Keokuk dam and in his opinion would make Keokuk the greatest manufac- turing center in Iowa. The company that, will provide the power there has a capital of It. will have 000 horse power at its disposal and be able to provide power for all localities within a radius of 150 miles at low river. AVhite House Repairs. Washington, D. C., July ;5. the adjournment of congress it lias de- veloped that extensive repairs must be made to the White houso before President Roosevelt and his family re-, turn, next autumn. y The discovery "was made almost coin'ckieritally with the killing by Harry K. Thaw of Stan- ford White, one of the firm of archi- tects which three years ago directed the remodeling of the White- house. Some of the work done on the White house at that time has1 failed. It has been found necessary to replace the roofs on both the east and west ter- races, either because of faulty con- struction or because the work was rushed to such an extent that early frosts subsequently damaged It. Examination for Inspectors. Washington, D. C., July carry into effect the meat inspection law en- acted by congress the civil: service commission has announced an exami- nation of inspectors to.be held on July 21. The regulations dO not require that inspectors be veterinarians, but they must be qualified from experience to determine whether or not meat is sound, wholesome, and fit for human food. They must be competent to supervise the preparation of various meat food products, must be between 21 and 50 years of age, aud must have had not less than one years' exper- ience in the work required to be done. The entrance salary is per an- num. The Bond Sale. Washington, D. C., July at the treasury department develops that in selling the Panama canal bonds Secretary Shaw is not actuated by any desire to bolster up the treasury at this time or to disburse the money to pay the expenses of canal construction. The money is to be held by the de- partment to support the financial mar- ket next fall should a crisis occur in Wall street. There was some surprise expressed over the announcement that bonds would be sold. It was known the treas- ury would be reimbursed on account of canal -expenses already incurred, but it was understood the bond sale would be deferred until late summer or early fall. The treasury has.no need of funds at this juncture, having on the largest working balance recorded for months. Conditions in the big money centers are not considered particularly favor- able for a bond sale, because of the weakness of stocks. Notwithstanding these facts the treasury officials believe the bonds will sell for as high as 100. It is not expected any will sell for less than The price United States bonds of was 103 7-S.
