Thompson, President Em rltus ot Ohio Ktato U n i v e r s i t y causwl no Old ot c u r l o H i t y here today. Dealing in imp Iclt phrases and generallzatlone it was d i f U e u H to determine just what forces, of c r i t i c i s m and what groups ot p a r t i s a n s Ml. Hoover had in m ^ n d a he ironically paid his respect to their "stra- tegems." The President a communication might be i p g a r d i I as an answer to many things that havo happened f i n d many comments i u a t have been maiio but Mr. Hoover refrained from becoming too bpoi'i ic. Whan he rotors to "partisans de r - rous t h a t t h e PreFi- dent s h o u l d f a i l , " Ihe- ^.V'neral a s s u m p - tion in that lie re eis t o lus opponents in Congre-is, the igh it must be said that these- have lot boeu confined to any one poliUca party and that 3Ir. Hoover's trouble i havo come aa much from the dlvisif u in tho Republican ranks n5 from t'io Ijomocrats. Undoubtedly Hoover nad in mind some o£ t i-e newspapers which are editorially opposed to phases of his foreign policies, but thero again his woids wore so general that ha left tho Capital -jucssiing inor-o or lesi as to w h o m he really m e a n t . It Is a fact t h a t tho President has been annoyed by the ofl orls of the lobby committee to involve him as having ac- cjiuphucd in .SOD o of the machinations «C tho bugai in ereata, aud h ia quite possible that 19 is taklni? a IllnK at some of his IT ties Hi t h a t regard.

Mr. Hoover, a cording to the gossip ot tho Capital, bas tor several years been stpokeu o' as ti mau who resented Lritieibiii, and it was f r e e l y predicted i.eioro ho we it to the W h i t e House that he would io sensitive on this 1,-outt. R e t e i i ly In huyiug tar»woll to tho American delegation to the Loudon naval i-onfere'uce tho President expressed tin hope that in the meantime the ci u n t r y would exercise patience and t h a t tho work might proceed "ire' from criticism." This is the type o appeal which President Wilhoa m a d e in 1918 when he thought ho saw tho partiaiu-i g a t h e r i n g strength to lefcat his program ol! peace even 'lefor-a the peace conference was c a l l e d , and it remained his belief u n t i l l i i = ! death t h a t partisan elforts p i e v . n t r d tho ratification of the i'oveuan of tho League of Nations, .Mi.

On t'lif. fiiibjeel, Colonel Merrill has tbo f o l l o w i n g in one of hie reports: "Along the entire length o£ His Youghu)g!jjti3', from its mouth to Conn-el 1-svlll-o, thero are heavy deposit* o£ bilnmluoiif! coal, and CQimollavlIle ili-iclf in t h e c e n t e r of a district widely k n o w n Cor Its excellent gas coal, coke anl iron. Tlieso products aro in great demand both Bust and W«st and their only outlets aro by the Pitleburg Connellisvillo Itallroad Company, and by a brnnoh of the PenneylTania' Central \\hlch has bean b u i l t within tlio p-ast year. Th-o producers ar-e Uhere-for« unanimous In their dcaire- l o havo cheap water transportation both Bast and "West. C.inal boat6 will ati-swer their purpose for communicating will! eastern irmrkele, but as a largo portion ol tho West can best be reached by i\ay of tho Oliio river, they naturally dcalro e i t h e r to hav-e Con- iK-llsvillo nuwle the head of steamboat navigation, or elue t o have such a water connection with the Ohio as will ouablc thorn to load their products at their mines into such bargee as aro used on tho Ohio f o r traneporting coal and cok-o in flcete. Tha barges are from 125 to 130 loe-t long and 25 feet wide-, and H is evident that any navigation t h a t will pass these will also paea the boats t h a t ply on a canal whoee locl«3 are 120 by 20. If, therefore-, wo ran arrange matters satisfactorily for Ohio river ctxil barges, we will havo ample spac-o for the regular canal navigation. CoS,l barges may be brought to Con- noltavillo through river locks large enough to accommodate a towboat with one or more barg-ee, or through rivor locks accommodating only one barge at a limo, or through an independent canal. Relating to tho eame, matter Colonel Sodswick says: "The- great importance of this route is tho opening of that iar h 'o part of the. Yougbiogheny coal f l u i d s lying- on tho south fcid-o of tho r i v e r to cheap transportation, and by that much enhancing tho con! com- meico ot tho Ohio river in one of He motit important feature's, tlic eupply of coal from FiUbburg and adjacent territory. It ia o£ as much importance- to get Uite coal to market jics Ihe development of tho coal Holds lying along tho Monongah-ela river by slack- water navigation lias Iwen. Thie im- provem-ont eeomu to bo called for In (oneeqiionco of the fact that the, coal bods on tii-o south side of the Yough- i-oghpiiy, between Connellbvllli} and ~\Vcst jNewton, aro not worked or de- velopi'd becaubo it w i l l not bear tho cost ol! delivery to tha railroad on tho north eld-o of th« river.
