Washington, April 30. Senator Mor
gan, of Alabama, In an Interview on
the Nlcaraguan situation today, char
acterized the Insult to Consular Agent
Hatch "the flimsiest kind of a pre
text," on the part of Great Britain
and said It a private Individual would
suffer damages on such a case, he
would foe laughed out of court. He
bad no criticism to pass on the admin
istration, because, he said, he pre
sumed the administration had taken
proper steps to prevent Great Britain
from obtaining a foothold on Nlcara
guan territory. "But if It has not," he
added, "the next congress will, even If
Great Britain must be driven oft the
continent at the potart of the bayonet."
He added he did not. think the canal
project would be endangered by the
present complications. f He said: "This
case has gone far beyond the Monroe
doctrine; this la distinctly Us own, and
that rests upon higher grounds than
any doctrine or any treaty ever made
or enunciated. The United States and
the governments of Nicaragua and
Costa Rica have entered Inito a solemn
compact with each other looking to
the construction of this great mari
time highway; a company, composed
mostly of citizens of the United States,
has organized and started Its work.
"Now comes Great Britain with the
domineering spirit of aggression that
has marked her course throughout the
history of modern times, and upon the
sllmeet of pretexts and most absurd
of excuse,, makes a demand upon the
goveromenft of Nicaragua that Bhe
does not expect to he complied with
and all In the hope that through the
default of the weaker government she
will be enabled to establish a sover
eignty over the territory and thus
control the future development of the
oanal and of the traffic that must pass
through It. Somebody must step In
and be disagreeable, and this seems to
be a very good opportunity for the
United -Sates to assume that role."
The Chinese Smuggling Organization
at Boise City.
Washington, April SO.-Secretary of
the Treasury Carlisle received from
Special Agents Johnston and Beane at
Boise City, Idaho, a report of the re
sults of their Investigation In alleged
frauds In connection with the entry
of Chinese Into this country. The re
port states the . Investigation shows
conclusively there had been for sev
eral years past an organized money
making conspiracy with a view of
manufacturing certificates upon which
Chinese laborers may be enabled to
visit China and return to the United
States as bona fide merchants. In a
majority of the. cases so -called mer
chants were found to be cooks, and
gardeners employed In or near Boise
City. Nevertheless a large number of
prominent citizens vouched for the
Chinese as merchants. The special
agervts are convinced that the business
has been carried on as a money-making
The Government of Nicaragua Willing
Co Pay to England 15,000.
Managua, Nicaragua, April 80. The
Nloaraguan governmenrt has formally
decided to accede to the compromise

the trouble. This decision has been
communicated to the governments at
Washington and London. Nicaragua
agrees to pay 15,000 In London fifteen
dam from the time the British ships
leave the harbor of Corlnto. It now
remains for Great Britain to agree
to this condition. Nicaragua's course
la regarded as shifting on Great Brit

The most positive assurances for the
payment of the money have been given.
Washington, April 80. The Managua
dispatch stating that Nicaragua has
agreed to a compromise by which she
will pay 15.000 on condition that Co

makes his opinion very vaiuume,
makes a statement that the second
mortgage bondholders of 'the Northern
Paclilo wfll soon apply for an order of
the court at Milwaukee directing the
receivers to pay Interest on the second
mortmure bonds. Their- petition will
state that the road has earned not only
Interest on the firsts tut also on the
seconds, and while Interest on the
firsts has been paid, the money which
should have been used to pay Interest
on the seconds has been used in the
payment of Interest on some of the
old 'bonds of branch roads, notably
the Duluith and, Manitoba ami tne Spo
kane branches, which have not only
failed to earn their Interest, but have
not earned operating expenses. They
claim that the receivers have not only
distorted money earned by the road
belonging to them, but have placed
other security ahead of theirs (the re
ceivers' certificates) and using their
interest money to .pay Interest on the
certificates. They will a 8k to be re

A Birds Eye View From Cox

Presents a Picture of Today nnd a
Glimpse down tlie Coni

Sunday was one of the ideal spring
days warm, bright sunshine awaken
Ing new animal and vegetable life on
all sides.. The loud notes Of Innumera
ble birds denoted their glad return to
old haunts, whilst Ithey flitted to and
fro amongst the blossoming trees and
flowers. AH seemed In harmony with
smiling nature. Careworn people for
got tihelr trials for the time being and
enjoyed to the full the glorious day
and, like the Irishman, seemed .thank
ful above all things that good weather
had been gdven.
From the top of Coxcomb Hill , the
afternoon dreamer had a magnificent
view. In the 'blue fcaae of distance, to the
north across the smooth waters of the
bay, dotted with innumerable white
sails, glistening In the sunshine, is the
little lumbering town of Knappton,
from which could be seen the light,
curling smoke from the firesides of the
hard working mill men and fishers. A
lltltle further to the left the bald
heights of Scarborough Hill stand like
a sentinel over Baker's Bay, while to
the extreme west, Cape Hancock
guards the entrance to the great Col
umbla river, and, beyond, the restless
waves of th.;pMUc glimmer in the
far distance. Glancing- along the
BoulBhern shore the observer notices the
government Jetty's long line extending
out Into the Ocean, a protecting arm
to Insure the safety of the great vessels
of commence, and nearer stlU old Fort
Stevens can be seen, long since aban
doned, now tlhe government contract-
ors' Jheadquarters. Nearlng- Young's
Bay,ithe settlements of Warrenton and
Sklpanon are plainly visible, while up
the bay toward the south is seen the
Lewis and Clarke river. To the rear
and south Young's river valley with
Its green fields and farm houses makes
a pleasing change In the picture. Away
to the southeast the peak of Saddle
mountain completes the setting of a
naawr'be-forg-often painting of na
ture, in all the lights and shade of a
spring day's coloring.
Immediately at the observer' feet

which the substantial business blocks,

ship and steamer from all parts of
the world anchored In the magnificent
harbor, or alongside the docks, dis
charging and receiving cargo; the
wheat of the Willamette Valley; the
timber, lumber and shingles from the
great Nehalem Valley timber preserves
and flour for the Orient are being load

joulltriea, and merchandise from Eu

are received tor distribution through
che ideal port of the Columbia. On
the land, the transcontinental train
arrive and depart over the new rail
road, bringing the lower Columbia riv
er and the Nehalem Valley Into direct
communication with the rest of the
state a well as the other Pacific
Coast and the Eastern states. Along
the waterfront huge elevators, flour
mills, aw mills, and factories add
their busy hum to the general pros
perity, while dower down, the new
dry doak offers the beet facilities for
buikling and repairing the largest
ships In the world. In the city Itself
new buslnens blocks, hotels, stores and
residences provide ample means for the
rabidly increasing population and busi
ness. This is the picture of the future As
toria and her progressive and enter,
prising people are not going to lose the
only buslnesllke proposition ever pre
sented to Insure Its realization. The
opportunity is here and the same in
