Another Rati War. Another
rate war has been inaugurated on the
lower Columbia river. A few days
ago the ownere of the steamer 8arah
Dixon reduced the fare one way to f 1

Oatiert and Lurllne to oome down to
the same rate and another cut may
be looked for at any time. - The re

Senator Morgan's Vlewe on the Jflo
Washimotos, April 30. Senator Morgan,
of Alabama, in an interview on the Nicer
aguan situation, today, characterised the
Insult to the sonsular agent. Hatch, " the
flimsiest kind of a pretext" on the part of
Great Britain, and ssid that if a private in
dividual would sne for damages on such a
case, he wonld bs laughed out of court.
He had no criticism to pass on the admin
istration, because, bs said, be presumed
the administration bad taken proper steps
to prevent Great Britain from obtaining a
foothold on Nicaraguan territory.
"But If It bas not," be added, "lbs next
congress will, sven If Great Britain must
be driven off tne continent at tbe point of
He added he did not think the canal pro
ject would bs sndangered by tbe present
complications. He said:
This case has gons fsr beyond tbe Mon
roe doctrine, far beyond the Clsytoo-Bul-wer
treaty. It has a character that is dis
tinctly its own, and tbat rests upon higher
grounds than any doctrine or any treaty
ever mads or enunciated. The United
States snd tbe governments ot Nicaragua
and Costs Rica have entered Into a solemn
compact with each other looking to the
construction of this .great maritime high
way; ths company, composed mostly of
citizens of tbe United States, is organized
and starts Its work.
"Now comes Great Britain, with tbe
domineering spirit of aggression tbat bas
marked ber course throughout the history
of modern times, and, upon tbs slimmest
of pretexts, the most absurd ot sxcuses,
makes a demand upon tbe government of
Nicaragua that sbs does not expect to be
complied with, and all in tbe bops that
through the default of the weaker govern
ment sbs will be enabled to establish a
sovereignty over ths territory and thus con
trol the future development of the canal
snd of tbs traffic that may pass through It.
I believe congress, at its next session, will,
if nothing shall be dons meanwhile by
authorised powers now in authority, ef
fectually and finally stop tbe aggressions
ot Great Britain and absolutely prevent ber
gaining a foothold in this most important
tpoint on tbe American continent. I think
here Is enough spirit in the American
people to pnt a stop to this proceeding.
Great Britain is not going to stop it of ber
owo volition. Homebody must step in and
bs disagreeable, and this seems to bs a very
good opportunity for the United States to
assume that role."
In Connecticut's State Senate.
Haotfosd, Conn., April 30. In tha sen
