TREATY 18 RATIFIED
Senate Approves the Hay
ONLY SIX DISSENTING VOTES
Seventy-two Member Voted in the
Affirmative The Principal Speech
of the Day "Was Made hy Teller
"WASHINGTON, Dec. 1C The Senate to
day ratified the Hay-Pauncefoto Isthmian
canal treaty by the decisive vote of 72
to C. The vote was reached, a few minutes
before 5 o'clock, after almost an hour's
discussion behind closed doors. Thtre
were no sensational incidents during the
entire time. The debate was confined ex
clusively to a discussion of the merits of
the agreement, and the policy of Its pro
visions. The principal Epeech of the day
was made by Senator Teller In opposition
to the treaty, and he was followed in rapid
succession by 12 or 15 other Senators, who
spoke briefly either for or against the
motion to ratify.
When the treaty was laid before the
Senate Senator Teller expressed confidence
that the resolution would be adopted, and
while he had no purpose to attempt to
prevent that result, he was convinced
that there are few Senators who are really
satisfied with the treaty. "With Great
Britain in her present mood he believed,
he said, it would have been possible to
secure a treaty which would give entire
satisfaction, and he criticised the State
Department for falling to do so. He took
the position that it would have been suffi
cient to abrogate the Clayton-Bulwer
treaty, and said that England knew well
enough that with that result accomplished
she could very well trust the United
States to maintain the neutrality of the
canal, as the country could be prepared to
do so for many years.
Other Spenkers of the Day.
Among the other speakers of the day
were Senators Clay, Fairbanks, McCum
ber, McLaurln. of Mississippi, Culberson,
Mallory, Mason, Tillman, Bacon and Bate.
Senator Clay was one of the Southern
Senators who spoke In advocacy of the
treaty. He contended that the treaty
should be ratified because It secured the
abrogation of 'the Clayton-Bulwer treaty.
Senator Mason made a strong plea for
the treaty, expressing his gratification
that American, diplomacy had succeeded In
securing such a triumph as was this treaty
over the original Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
Senator Bacon's speech was made in con
nection with a motion to amend the
treaty. In presenting this amendment he
said he was In favor of a canal, and
would vote for the treaty with the Davis
amendment. He opposed the treaty be
cause he did not believe It would give
the United States full control of the canal.
He said Great Britain rejected the amend
ed Hay-Pauncefote treaty, but sent us
another treaty about identical with the
'former treaty as amended, except as re
gards the Davis amendment. He consid
ered that fact -the most Important feature
of the whole controversy.
There was an exceptionally full Senate
when the time arrived for a vote, but the
certainty of ratification had become to
apparent that there was comparatively
little interest in the proceedings. The
votes on the amendments succeeded each

LONDON PAPERS PLEASED.
AH Ilcgrnrd It as u Personal Trlnmph
LONDON, Dec. 17. The papers this
morning express much satisfaction that
the United States Senate ratified the Hay
Pauncefote treaty by such a large ma
jority. The Morning Post regards this as a
great personal triumph for President
Roosevelt, and portends similar successes
for him when dealing with the other sub-
Jects discussed in the Presidential mes
sage. The Daily News makes similar comment
with a parting criticism of Lord Larus

Affairs, "making a strategic movement in
The Dally Chronicle pays that the im

closely the terms of the treaty have been
adapted to the American points of view,
"This may be one method of preserv
ing good relations with the United States,
but it is hardly business, and It may be
come an expensive one."
The Times concurs with the other morn

Roosevelt's striking success, and expresses
great satisfaction at the closing of a con
troversy which has long prevented the
growth of good feeling between the two
SEXATE STANDS BY KNOX.
His Nomination an Attorney-General
WASHINGTON. Dec lC-Just before
adjournment tonight the Senate confirmed
the nomination of Philander C. Knox to
be Attorney-General of the United States.
The nomination of Mr. Knox was taken
up when the Senate first went into execu
tive session a few minutes after 12 o'clock,
but the point was made that first there
should be action on the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty under the agreement reached last
Thursday. The virtue of this plea was
conceded, and a tentative agreement was
made that further consideration of the
nomination should be postponed until to
morrow. When, however, the Senate had
disposed of the treaty the Attorney-General's
nomination was again called up. The
dlscuEsion of it turned upon a motion made
by Jones of Arkansas to recommit the
nomination to the committee on Judiciary,
in the meantime publishing the testimony
bearing on the case.
Speeches in favor of this proposition
were made by Jones and Turner and In
opposition by Hoar and Pettus. It was
contended by the two Senators last named
that the only evidence presented against
confirmation had been filed by members
of the Anti-Trust League, and was very
vague and indefinite. The Senators favor
ing the motion said that If this were true,
there could be no objection on the part of
friends ot the Attorney-General to plac
ing all the facts within reach of the pub
lic, and the tnore time the committee
should give to the subject the more thor
oughly the public would be convinced of
the fairness- of its position, when ultimate
ly taken. They dwelt at some length up
on the charge made that the Attorney
General, previous to entering upon the
duties of that office, had been attorney
for the United States Steel Corporation
and the armor-plate manufacturers. Id
reply to these accusations It was said it
was legitimate for an attorney In private
life to represent any interest in his of
ficial capacity, and it was argued that his
position as counsellor for those Ir-terests
could not be used legitimately against him
in connection with his nomination to a
position under the present Administration.
So long as he had conducted himself with
propriety, his relationship as an attorney
should not be used to his injury as an
official. The motion to recommit was lost.
The ballot stood 43 to 7. There was no
roll call on the motion to confirm, which

WASHINGTON. Dec. 1C Plans were
being made on both sides of the House of
Representatives today for the two days'
debate on the Philippine tariff bill, which
will begin tomorrow. Each side will
have four and one-half hours. This great

larly the opposition, which had intended
to make this bill the text for an elaborate
arraignment of the policy of the party In
power. Chairman Payne will open the
debate in a speech of about three-quarters
of an hour, and Dalzell (Rep. Pa.) will
close the debate just before the vote Is
taken on Wednesday. Richardson (Dem.

ST. JOHN'S. N. F.. Dec 11-Owing to
fog and rain, Marconi was unable to
swing his kites in mid-air today. He
therefore went to Cape Spear to deter
mine upon the fitness of that promon
tory for the wireless telegraph station
which he proposes to establish. He ex
perienced poor luck. The weather was
rendered extremely unpleasant by fog,
wind and a rain storm, and the Inventor
was unable to decide upon a site for his
proposed station. He could not see the
f-urroundlng region, and a general view
of the physical features of the country
in the vicinity Is necessary before fixing
upon a site Mr. Marconi wishes to avoid
the presence of a high hill behind the

rlmental to the system If they are In the
line of transmission, as they weaken the
signals by causing a rebound.
On returning hero from Capo Spear,
Marconi was served with legal documents
from the solicitors of the Anglo-American
Telegraph Company. These notify
him tint, the said company possesses an
exclusive monopoly of the telegraph bus
iness within Newfoundland and its de
pendencies, and demand that he cease
hii experiments and remove his apparatus
forthwith, otherwise the company will
apply to the Supreme Court for an In
junction restraining him from further tri
als. Marconi has not yet decided what
course of action he will take In the mat
ter. He regards this action on the part
of the Anglo-American Telegraph Com
pany us the best proof of the Importance
of his new discovery.
Despite the action of the telegraph com
pany, Marconi hopes to Inaugurate tho
New Year by sending a spectal message
over the Atlantic, If tho steamer on which
he is to sail from New York reaches Eng
land on time lie will go direct to Corn
wall, and take charge of matters there.
By Midsummer Marconi will have a fully

LEAVES FOR ENGLAND THURSDAY.
Marconi's Assistants at Corn-wall
Will Say Little or Nothing.
LONDON, Dec 13. A cable dispatch has
been received here from St. John's, N. F.,
announcing that Signor Marconi will sail
for England December 19. At the head
quarters here of the Inventor of wireless
telegraphy. It was said today by the ofil
cers in charge that the experiments at
St. John's, so far as they know, are all
over. They do not expect to hear any
further details until Signor Marconi ar
rives In London.
It was said that storms on both sides
of tho Atlantic had seriously interfered
with tin work, which tho officials say
would have been much more satisfactory )
under normal weather conditions, the t
Poldhu. Cornwall, station having been se
riously damaged by high winds.
The officials at Poldhu refuse to con
firm or deny the truth of the reports from
St. John's that messages had been received
thero from Cornwall by wireless teleg
raphy. They profess complete Ignorance
of the success or "failure of the experi
ment. Pnpln Believes Marconi Snccecded.
NEW YORK, Dec 16. M. I. Pupln, pro
fessor of electrical mechanics at Colum
bia University, In an interview, says he
fully believes Marconi succeeded in sig
nalling between tho coasts of Newfound
land and Cornwall, England, by his sys
tem of wireless telegraphy. Continuing,
the professor said:
"The signals were very faint as I read
in the report, but that has little to do
with It. The distance, which Is about
1S00 miles between these two points-, was
overcome, and further development of the
sending Instruments Is all that is re
Professor Pupln said that members of
the Society of Electrical Engineers had
discussed the subject two years ago, and
many were at that time of the opinion
that the day was not far distant when
wireless messages would be sent 1000
miles or more. Again continuing, he said:
"One point which Is of great value and
Interest to the scientific world Is that
Marconi has proved conclusively that tho
curvature of the earth Is no obstacle to
the system of wireless telegraphy. Some
were inclined to think, and there were
many heated discussions upon It,
that the curvature limited the system. All
Marconi's efforts of late have been di
rected toward perfecting and making his
sending apparatus more powerful and giv
ing great height to the sending end.
"It remains to be proved, however, that
heavy banks of fog, low hanging clouds
and heavy showera along and in the path
of the transmitted electric wave will not
entirely obstruct Its progress. The pre
sumption generally Is that they will, as
experiments thus far have proved. At
mospheric conditions have also much to

Ships Employ the System.
NEW YORK. Dec 16.The Cunarder
Etruria, which has just arrived here, was
in communication for more than five
hours in midocean with her sister ship,
the Umbrla. Lone before either ship
sighted the other, their commanders were
conversing by the Marconi wireless sys
tem. The position of each ship was
known on the other hours before their
main trucks showed above the horizon.
The Etrurla left Liverpool on December
7, the same day the Umbrla steamed out
of New York. They were 1630 miles cast
northeast of Sandy Hook when they
passed each other last Wednesday, or In
latitude 45:17 and longitude 51:07. Five
hours before that, or .when they were
fully 100 miles apart, the receiver on the
Etruria began to click warnlngly. The
operator replied, and then the word "Um

Etruria's Instrument. Then followed the
Unibrla's location. The Etrurla replied,

to be fully 100 miles away from the other

speech was keenly discussed In the polit
ical clubs last night, and until his con
cluding remarks were received It was not
regarded ns of a startling character. Hl3
few final words, however, put an almost
new complexion on the matter, and al
though most varied opinions of the speech
have been expressed both by the press
and by political men, there Is a general
agreement that tho ex-Premier's address
was a bid for the formation of an en
tirely new party, overthrowing home rule
and the Irish Alliance. It Is Interpreted
as a direct Invitation to the Liberal
Unionists to enter the ranks of the new
party, and a brief speech by H. H. As
qulth, M. P., Liberal Imperialist, who
followed Lord Rosebery, and Interpreted
the ex-Premier's appeal as a revocation
of his former declaration that he would
withdraw from public affairs, is regarded
as confirming thi3 Impression. Conse
quently neither of the extreme parties Ib
satisfied with the speech.
The Conservative Standard calls It a
profound disappointment, and pours a
column of ridicule upon the speech, es
pecially resenting the idea that the gov
ernment would have anything to do with
Mr. Krugcr in the way of negotiating an
end to hostilities, and declaring there Is
no place In serious politics for Lord Rose
bery. The pro-Boer Daily News comce to ex
actly the same conclusion and says:
"Rosebery is interesting as a dramatic
study, but as a practical politician he Is
behind the age." The more moderate sec
tion of the press expresses In varying
notes Its admiration. The speech was so
long that It was difficult to cover every
point, but Lord Rosebery's outspoken de
fense of the army against the charges
of brutality, which, he said, had he time
to develop the theme, he could more justi
fiably place upon the shoulders of the
enemy; his frank declaration that no
peace overtures should come from the
British side; that no special peace com
missioner should bo sent to South Africa,
and that no attempt should be made to
remove Mr. Chamberlain or Mllner, al
though he disagreed with their meth
ods, make the ex-Premier's speech very
acceptable to the bulk of his countrymen.
The only point likely to be disapproved
Is his suggestion that some Informal
meeting, such as might occur, as he
laughingly suggested. In a tavern, might
lead to peace negotiations with the Kru
gerltes. The Daily Mall and the Dally Teletrranh
consider that Lord Rosebery fully rose to
a great occasion. The Telegraph said the
speech was Inspired by patriotism and
The Daily Chronicle says the Important
thing Is that Lord Rosebery has raised
his standard, and is pledged before the
country, in conditions of exceptional em
phasis, to place himself at the head of the
movement of new Liberalism.
The Times, In an editorial on Lord
Roscbery'B speech, says It Is worthy of his
high reputation as a patriot and states
man, and that it is an utterance which
rises with rare completeness to the level
of a great occasion, but that It will not
-produce any magical efTect In tho domain
of British politics. The Times says:
"If the Krugerltes are disposed to treat
on the basis of complete surrender of their
Independence and can give reasonable
grounds, showing their orders would bo
binding upon the fighting Boers, we don't
believe thero would be any disposition to
negotiate for a suspension of hostilities."

ECHO OF SCHLEY TRIAL
SENATE RESOLUTIONS OF THANKS
FOR THE ADMIRAL.
It Also Includes His Men Resolution
for Suppression of Anarchy
WASHINGTON, Dec 16,-An echo of
the verdict of the court of Inquiry in the
case of Rear-Admiral Schley was neard
In the Senate todiy when Jones of Arkan
sas Introduced a resolution extending the
thanks of Congress and of the American
people to Admiral Schley and the officers
and the men under his command during
the battle of July 3, 1S9S, off the harbor
of Santiago, Cuba. In submitting the
resolutions, Mr. Jones made no state
ment, and it was referred without com
ment to the committee on naval affairs.
A resolution heretofore offered by Vest,
Instructing the committee on judiciary to
inquire into the subject of anarchy, and
to report to the Senate, by bill or other
wise, a constitutional method by which
Congress may legislate for the suppres
sion of anarchy and for the control of
anarchy, was adopted.
Little business except that of routine
was adopted in open session, the Senate
levotlng the greater part of the day to
discussion of the Hay-Pauncefoto treat?
in executive session.
A resolution offered by Clay, directing
the Postmaster-General to send to the
Senate a complete statement of the
amounts paid by tho United States Gov
ernment to various steamship lines for
mall service, together with copies of the
contract in each case, was agreed to.
A resolution offered by Nelson of Min
nesota, requesting the President to send
to the Senate a copy of the report of
Ambassador Choate relative to certain
charges imposed by "London dock com
panies upon American flour and other
American products shipped to that port,"
Vest called up his resolution Instructing
the Judiciary committee to inquire Into
and report to tho Senate, by bill or oth
erwise, as to the proper action by Con
gress upon the subject of anarchy and
anarchists. He said he did not desire at
this time to enter upon a discussion of
the subject. Indeed he did not feel quali
fied to discuss it until he had heard from
the judiciary committee. The resolution
recommended these questions:
"Has Congress Constitutional power to
legislate for the punishment of anarch
ists who assassinate or attempt to as
sassinate tho President of the United
States, and if not, whether It Is expedi
ent to amend the Federal Constitution to
enable Congress so to legislate?
"Whether it 13 necessary to empower
Congress to prevent the teachings of an
archist? that all governments should be
destroyed, and the chief rulers of such
"Whether It Is necessary that Congress
shall have power to punish persons bo
longing to anarchistic associations?
"What amendments. If any, are neces
sary to the naturalization laws to pre
vent anarchists from becoming citizens of
the United States, and whether such an
archists should, after trial and conviction,
be imprisoned or deported from tho
"Whether It Is necessary to confer upon
Congress the power to establish a penal
colony where persons convicted of an
archy shall be confined during life?"
Without discussion or comment the res
olution was adopted.
Clapp called up his resolution providing
that further discussion of the Bending
Hay-Pauncefote treaty should be had in
open session. In addressing the Senate
briefly, he said that while the resolution
wa3 not Introduced as a joke, the coun
try regarded the executive sessions of the
Sentito as a farce. He did not think there
was any occasion under ordinary condi
tions for secret sessions of the Senate.
Despite every effort of the Senate, the
American people obtained reports of se
cret set!cri3. While his resolution, he be
lieved, wculd be shelved, he was of the
opinion that executive sessions "will be
come a parr of the tradition and rubbish
of this great people of ours." Mason co
incided with the view expressed by Clapp,
and declared that the Senate executive
sessions were "an ancient barnacle"
which ought to be swept away. Mason
was Interrupted by Money, who raised a
point of order against the discussion of
the subject In open session, Dut nnaiiy
the resolution was referred, on motion
of Spoonci, to the committee on rules.

unsecured liabilities of the corporation
amounted to 1.142.000, with asset of
420.000. At a subsequent meeting of the

be nothing left. Apparently, none of the
directors, with the exception of Whltaker

certain sum of 250.000 first figured as an
asset on the balance sheet of the London
& Globe Company, then on the balance
sheet of the British-American Corpora

the London 5c Globe Company, all within
