Mr. I.acey, in support of his motion,
said that the house was confronted
with the constitutional interference
of the pi e sklent on a bill that had
passed both houses unanimously.

Mr Murphy, the Arizona delegate,
made the positive statement that the
bill had the approval of the secretary
of the interior and the coiiimissioiie'r
of the general laud olllce. and that
their opinions in writing had been
laid before the President while he. was
considering the bill. Notwithstand
ing this statement. Mr. Turner of
de orgin thought it could be assumed
surely that the President had had the
advice of the .secretary of the Interior
and that the latter probably had in
spired the veto. One of the principal
objections raised by the President was
that the lands, If leased by the local
authorities ot the Territory, could bo
denuded of their timber." as be th.t

to .submit the leases for the approval
of the secretary.

Pakis, March ,' An unexpected
solution of tliu Panama canal problem
is presented as a possibility of the
near future lu tliu consolidation of tliu
Panama company with the Nicaragua
Canal company. Tho president of the
latter corporation, .1. R. Rartlett, who
has just left Paris for Americu, bears
with him. It Is said, an agreement for
the fusion of the two companies. This
agreement was lormally signed here,
but It is not conclusive. It is under
stood that it will become opeiatlve on
behalf of the Panama company when
concurred in by the directors of the
Nicaragua company In New York.
'L'ho agreement provides for tho ab
sorption or tho Panama fmncliNeund
assets, including tho railroad across
the isthmus. The French company Is
to receive a substantial sum or money
and stock in the American corpora
tion, which will proceed to cut
through the isthmus via Lake Nicar

siderations, were an honorable relief
from the recurring turmoil over their

The Nicaragua representative, on
their part, claim to arrive great ad

Wsiiioio, March 'J . It Is un
derstood that the Cuban resolution
pending in both houses absorbed the
attention at the cabinet meeting. The
decision of the Senate committee on
foreign relations to express the senti
ment and wishes or Congress in the
form tif a concurrent resolution, in
stead or shaping it as a joint resolu
tiou. is believed to have gratillod the
administration, ir the President were
to be confronted with a joint resolu
tiou at this time recognizing the bel
ligerently of the insurgents and even
the independence of the rebels, he
would bo placed in a very disagreea
ble position. If lie approved tho reso
lutions it would be a confession that
the course pursued by our gov
ernment town -d Cuba and Spain up to
this time had been wrong, for it has
been insisted that there has been no
change in relations to parties in war
fare in tuba that would warrant a
change In attitude. It would also
amount to a reversal of the position
tnlt-en by the State department In do
Haueo of some of the great Kuropean
powers during the Uracil insurrection
when the United States insisted that
as a precedent to recognition the in
surgents must have a seat of govern
ment, must issue money und must have
a navy. At least two or these requi
sites are lacking lu tho Cuban case.
(n the other hand If tliu President
vetoed a joint resolution of this char
acter he would be obliged to facefa
storm of popular disapproval ami to
make an issuu with Congress that
might be fraught with the gravest
consequences, for It is realized that
the resolution in that case would pass
over his veto. Hut by making the res
olution u simple concurrent one the

studying the project, and a few days
ago completed the plaits for the model
electric carriage. It is now in tho
course of construction and will be com
pleted ory soon The tlimcnsiotisnr
this new wagon will be twelve feet
long, si-; rcet wide anil it trifle over sit
feet high. It will simply be a small
postotlkc on wheels, It w HI be fitted up
precisely as a mail street car or a
steam railroad postal car. except that
the scale will be smaller. The body of
the wagon will bo hung on springs
and counter spring,, and the wheels
shielded with heavy rubber tires. It
has been definitely decided by the post -otllce
department to employ the horse
less wagons In the transportation or
mails in city and country districts
where there are no railway 'lines, and
where the service can be improved by
assorting tho mails between otllces
wliilu in transit. It is intended to
place these wagons in service in cities
which cover a large area and where
"separation" between four or live sta
tions will greatly facilitate mail de
liveries. WEEKLY REVIEW OF TRADE
