Atkins, secretary of the Maritime Canal
company, waa Sxamlned at considerable
length be fere the senate committee oa Isth-
mlaa caoale .today regarding the conces
sion which had been made to that com
pear. He said that the company bad psld
th Klearagnan government fU.OOQ for lands
along tho right of way. It bavlag M.OoO
teres la on tract. It still asserted the
right to this land sad looks to tho raited
State for protection of Us rights and In
terests. Ha aald th company could not do any
thing without tha assistance of th United
Bute. The Nlcaragnan concessions hid
been cancelled by the Nicaragua govern
ment and the company bad protested the
cancellation. There never had been any
cancellation f the concessions and fran
chises which ths Maritime company had
obtained from Costa Rica aad thee con
cessions were oxeluslvs. The caaal could
not bo constructed or operated without
these concession in Costa Rica.
Ho waa asked what would be th effect
If the United Bute should acquire' a con-
eossion from Costa Rica along th same
route, and replied that It would bo a viola
tion Of tho company's concession, but added
that tho company while asserting lu right
to tht concession would not do so ebstruct
Ively so at to prevent th United States
trora Constructing th canal. Th spirit ot
tho company waa to leav th matter to
tho fatted State government, believing
that th government would deal equitably
with tho company which bad so long had
those valuable concession and expended a
great amount of money In work. Ho men
tioned 14,000.000 or 5.000,00 as tb valu
