Representative Moody Is ursine Sen
ator Mitchell's amendment to the In

Klamath land at a cost of 1500.000.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. Feb. 6. Engineer officers In this
city are not willing finally to- commit
themselves on the proposal of the State
of Oregon to construct a portage railroad
from Celllo around The Dalles rapids, on
the Columbia River, until they aro fully
advised as to the details of the plan pro
posed. The Government would have super
vision over such a proposition only in so
far as the right of way to be occupied by
the portage road would He upon land
that has been acquired by the- Govern
ment under the old toat railway project,
and where the state would seek to ac
quire wharfage rights la the river at
each en a of the proposed road. These
matters would come under the 'supervision
of the Chief of Engineers.
It Is stated at the department that, so
far as is known, there is no particular
reason why a portage road should In any
way encroach upon or Interfere with the
Government work to be undertaken under
the canal project, as there Is much more
land now owned by the Government be-
tweeen The Dalles and Celllo than will
ever be used for canal purposes. On the
contrary, it is pointed out that two engl
neer boards and a number of individual
engineering officers have in the past rec
ommended the construction' of a Govern
ment portage road at this point, and, in
view of this past attitude. It is said there
is little or no likelihood that the engi
neers would throw any obstacles in the
way of a portage road to be. built and
maintained by the state. In view of the
opposition in Congress to the Government
ownership and control of railroads. It has
never been possible to secure the sanction
of that body for a Government portage
road, although many numbers believed
that such a road would meet the demand
and serve to force the desired reduction
In railroad 'rates to the seaboard.
The engineering board that Is now con
sidering the Harts project, it is under
stood; is giving no thought whatever to
the portage road project, and. In fact, is
devoting Its entire attention to devising
a cheap, yet satisfactory, canal project
that will afford a permanent open river.
It Is admitted by engineer officers that a
portage road paralleling the river would
prove of very great assistance to the en
gineers In the construction of the canal,
and on this account the state's proposi
tion wlll'appeal more strongly to the de
partment when it is presented In detail.
Representative Mcody, who has taken a
deep Interest in this work, has called on
state officials for details, particularly as
to right of way desired for the proposed
portage road. When this Is had. he be
lieves the approval of the department can
readily be bad, even though it may be
necessary to make some alterations In or
der to meet their demands.
ARE WARV OF AD DICKS.
Regular Delaware Republicans
Think He Is Trying a Trick.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. Feb. 6. The sudden withdrawal of
Addlcks from the Senatorial fight In Dela
ware has aroused considerable suspicion
among the regular wing of the Republi
can party of that state, and his oppo
nents' are not, willing to "rush ahead and
grasp this apparent opportunity of elect
ing two Republican Senators. They arc
suspicious of an Addlcks trick and seem
to believe that it means that two of Ad
dlcks' .henchmen, who have been as bad
as he, would be chosen if his 'offer were
accepted. If there is a caucus. It. seems
certain- that two Addlcks men will be
named. , ,
FATE OF ALASKA TTtEATT.
State Depnrement Not Anxious to
Have It Ratified.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Feb, 6. It Is doubtful whether
there will be any time In- the
present -session of Congress to fcon
slder the Alaska treaty. Although
It has been' stated that some op
position has been engendered to prevent
its ratification, this Is denied by those in
a position to Judge.
The fact Is, the State Department Is
not very .anxious to have the treaty rati
fied, and there Is more than likely a de
sire In the department that the present
modus shall continue Indefinitely and un
disturbed by any treaty which would tend
to settle tie boundary dispute. It was
thought at the time the modus was ne
gotiated that it would practically settle
the Alaska boundary line, it Is not be
lieved that anything would come out of
the present treaty anyway, ns a disagree
ment In the tribunal would prevent any
thing from being accomplished, and no one
believes that either the Canadians or the
Americans would be willing to give up
any cf the disputed territory.
The treaty will go over into the next
Congress, where it may be considered,
although the Impotency of Its provisions
does not give very much encouragement
for adopting It. It might be ratified. Just
to see If anything could be done or for the
purpose of bringing out all the facts that
exist regarding the Alaskan boundary.'
British Papers Worried.
NEW YORK, Feb. 6. The news that the
opposition of the Northwestern Senators
will probably prevent the passage of the
Alaska boundary treaty is regarded here
at very disconcerting, says a London dis
patch to the Tribune. The Dally Chron
icle considers that the failure of the treaty
will mean the Indefinite continuance of
the deadlock. "Canada." It says, will lose
the chance of obtaining a free port In
the Klondike district, and most violent
friction must arise if gold- should be dis
covered in the 'territory under dispute."
TO BUY KLAMATH LANDS.
Moody Asks Senate Committee to
Adopt Mitchell' Amendment.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Feb. 6. Representative Moody to
day appeared before' the Senate Indian
committee and urged the adoption of Sen
ator Mitchell's proposed amendments to
the Indian bill, laying particular stress
on the proposition to incorporate In the
bill a provision for the ratification of the
treaty with the Klamath Indians looking
to the relinquishment to the Government
of a part of their lands, for which they
are to be paid v something -over $300,000.
Owing to the continued Illness of Senator
Mitchell, it has devolved upon Mr. Moody
to look after this and all other Oregon

are to be signed by Mr. Bowen with the
Italian Ambasmdor, SIgnor 'Mayor des
Planches, two with the British Ambas
sador, and two with the German Minister,
Baron Speck von Sternberg. The first
protocol In each case will provide for the
reference of the allies' contention for
preferential treatment to The Hague and
the ratxlng of the blockade simultaneously
with the signing of this convention. It
Is doubtful whether the Initial protocols
between Minister Bowen and the three al
lies will contain the same condition,
though all the negotiators are working to
this end. In these protocols the condi
tions precedent to the raising of the
blockade will be clearly stated, namely,
that 30 per cent of the cufitoma receipts of
the porta of La Guayra and Puerto Ca
bello are to be set aside by Venezuela
for the satisfaction of her creditors, and
that the question as to whether the al
lied powers shall receive preferential, or,
as Great Britain terms It, "separate."
treatment In the settlement, shall be de
cided at The Hague. These protocols will
also provide that Venezuela shall pay
down to each of the three allied powers
5S00 sterling, as a partial cash pay
ment The differences between these
protocols It Is said, will concern certain
details, the nature of which Is not yet
known even to Mr. Bowen. The German
protocol will be submitted to him tomor
row by the German Minister for consid
eration. Afterward Mr. Bowen will go to
the British Embassy, in view of the Ill
ness of the British Ambassador, and ther
will see the protocol drawn up by Lord
Lansdowne. The Italian Ambassador,
SIgnor Mayor des Planches', will bring
1 his protocoj-to Mr. Bowen tomorrow for
Having arranged for the signature
of these first protocols, the negotiators
will take up the second protocols, which
are to cover the manner of adjudicating
the claims of the various creditor pow
ers and the means for the administration
of the customs receipts. As announced
yesterday, the claims of each claimant
power are to be settled by a commission,
to consist In each Instance of a repre
sentative of a creditor government and
a Venezuelan, and In case of a failure
to agree, the King of Spain will appoint
an arbiter The plan agreed on for the
collection of the payments provides that

with the administration of the receipts

the claims of all the nations are satisfied.
Slay Be Some Delay.
It was admitted tonight that some days
may yet pass before either of the proto
cols can be signed, owing to minor dif
ferences, but negotiations are expected to
move more swiftly than In the past.
In Administration and diplomatic cir
cles, the reference to The- HagUfe-'l6'ref
garded as a victory for Minister -Bowen,
as "Venezuela is thereby enabled to re-
cover from the distressing effect of the
