PEDRO VELEZAS STUDIED SEN

GUIDE HIM .
New York, August 4. Pedro Ve'ei, a
member of the Colombian congress and
one of the house committee which has
charge of the Panama canal treaty,
will sail for Colon today, nfter a stay
cf several weeks In this city and Wash
ington. After Visiting his home in
Cartegena he will go to Bogota to take
part In the canal debate. During his
stay Velei has carefully studied sen
timent relative to, the canal and will
use as a guide In sthe deliberations of
congress the information he ffas giuth
ered. ' -
Regardless of the great advantage of
the Panama route, he says, those who
favor It over the Nicaragua waterway
are greatly In ".he minority. Velei does
not e.xpect an early vote because of
protracted debate - and numerous am
endments which will be offered.' "I
cannot tell how I will vote," said he,
"but If I were to Judge according to lm
pressions received here from a general
ity of the press, my decision would be
decidedly against the treaty. If the
present negotiations with the United
States should come ' to a standstill. I
feel our government and people will
not In any case try to bargain on or
sacrifice the French people, with whom
our relations have been cordial.
" "The ?anal will be a benefit to Colum

here does not trend toward the advanta
