of standard gauge and its bridges
are of steel and masonry. The equip

persistently violating the rights ot the
two countries imposing indignities up
on their subjects, seizing their prop

them upon trivial charges.
Tho state department has given out
no statement, but it is believed that
it will not interfere, as tho announce

official sources that neither country
desires permanent acquisition of ter
ritory, but will simply seize tho cus
