CUBA APPROVES TREATY
Senate Batifiea Protocol by Eiaotly Two
AID GIVEN SUGAR HELPS FINAL RESULT
Araameot la Advanced that Europe
Will I), Dlitinred and Kept
. Ont of lulled Statea
HAVANA, March 11. The reciprocity
treaty with the United Statea wit ratified
tonight by 16 to 5, exactly a two-thirds
vote of the senate. Fifteen republican
conservatives, or administration senators,
and one nationalist voted In favor and
Ova nationalists against. There were three
absentees, all of whom, It Is believed,
' favored the treaty.
The ratification required only a majority
vote, so that there were three votes to
Senator Zayas, the only nationalist who
voted foe ratification, In explaining his
' vote said it was his desire to amend the
treaty with reference to the exchange of
similar commodities produced in both
countries, but be had no Intention of op-
o posing the treaty Itself. Srnor Sanguilly
I' explained that his opposition was designed
" chiefly to draw out whatever could be ad
n vanced In support of the treaty, and thru
the arguments of Senator Bustamente, as
D'put forward In the senate, yesterday, ron
Vvlncod him that the country would be more
prosperous with reciprocity than" without
it, but, nevertheless, hie attitude of oppo-
. altlon and disapproval of the acts of the
executive department of the government
forbade him voting yea.
. Maat Aid C uban Trade,
It The Vote was taken Immediately on the
'conclusion of a forceful appeal by Senor
0' Bustamente. He insisted thai whether the
r trust or the producers were the chief bene
' tlclariea of the 20 per cent reduction on
Cuban sugar, it was not possible that such
, differential treatment could result other
than favorably to Cuba's trade. Under the
treaty the European producers would be
unable to compete with Cuba.
If the European nations were really seck
' lng to prevent the ratification of the treaty
In the United States senate, It was not on
. account of the little they would lose In
the Ouban markets, but because they would
do longer be able to send sugar to the
United States. The treaty would also pro.
vide protection for Cuban tobacco.
Viewed in another aspect, he continued.
' the treaty would - give Cuba a national
' entity and allow it to enter Into commer
cial relations with the nation which has
' hitherto been considered only as Its guar
: vote." said he. "for the treaty with
the conviction that we, in so doing, are
Tendering a patriotic duty to Cuba, even
If the treaty is not approved by the United
States senate. I do not intend to retire
tonight with my mind disquieted by
thoughts of a weak and hungry Cuba seek
ing Its independence for a bag of money,
but rather with the knowledge that through
our assistance It. his taken progressive
steps toward prosperity, power and the
protection of its Independence snd liber
ties." The eustom of sproving tho treaty by
articles was dispensed with and the recom
mendations of the committee were approved
tn their entirety.
So many members of the house of rep
resentatives have visited the senate during
'the last two days that the sessions of the
house have been suspended.

America by latereontl
WASHINGTON, March 11. Senor Qua
chllla, Bolivian minister, has written the
Bolivian syndirate, made up of capitalists
of New Tork and London, and also known
as the Anglo-American syndicate, saying
that he has been Informed that It has ac
cepted an Indemnity of $570,000 from Brazil
for Its rights In the Acre territory, now In
dispute between Brazil and Bolivia.
The minister eald tontgnt that he re
gretted the acceptance of this Indemnity
as a waiver of the syndicate's right to ex
ploit the Acre territory, and that Bolivia
feared Brazil would use the rights ob
tained through the purchase of the con
cession to support Its claim to the 90,000
square miles in dispute.
Bolivia claims that the syndicate Is ab
solutely without authority to take tMa ac
tion, and that it is a violation of the con
tract under which the concession was
granted, transfers of the concession to
foreign states or governments being, be
When he learned that the transfer was
contemplated Senor Guachllla protested
and suggested arbitration, but his proposi

chllla today sent the following dispatch to
the representatives of the syndicate:
Frederick W. Whltridge. manager and
agent of "The Bolivia Syndicate," 69 Wall
street, New York.
On February 26 you and the syndicate
signed with the representative of Brasll
an agreement In respect of an indemnity of
114,(100 sterling to which the syndicate l.
On February 21 you wrote to mo as fol
lows: "1 have to say that the syndicate
has had no meeting since the suggestion
of a possible settlement with Brazil was
made and there will be no meeting until
the Hrrlval of blr Martin Conway, for whom
we have cabled, and who Informs me by
cable that he will sail on Wednesday next,
the 25th, which would bring him here about
the 4th or Mh of March. Until that time
nothing will be concluded by the syndi
cate." On February 26 you again wrote to me
as follows: "The syndicate has had no
meeting and will have no meeting and will
conclude nothing until the arrival of Sir
Martin Conwa. That Is still true. I know
nothing about Mr. Sieger's telegram except
what 1 have seen in the papers, and what
I have told you was, of course, perfectly
true. Conway railed yesterday and will
be here next week."
Sir Martin Conway reached New York on
tho 6th Instant. The next day he Informed
me, referring to you. that the syndicate
had not met and that therefore it had not
yet taken any action. Consequently I
continued to discuss the matter and made
several propositions. demBndlng in the first
place that the arbitration agreed to in the
contract should be carr.ed out.
Sir Martin also wrote to me on the 9th
Instant: "All 1 can lenrn today Is that
Brazil has offered an Indemnity and that
no money has been paid."
Meanwhile, alnce Ferbuary 26 an agree
ment had been reached, notwithstanding
my formal and repeated opposition there
to, and the indemnity is already paid.
I protest against this action as null and
void, which cannot be binding upon my
government and which does not affect the
rights of my country.

turned the Midway islands over to the

instance of the Pacific Cable company
which has asked lor the protection of Its
properties on the islands.
Roving Japanese sailors are in the habit
of putting into the Islands for the plu
mage of sea fowl snd for guano. It Is
probable that the Navy department will
establish a small station on the Islands
and American warships will make a prac
tice of touching there much more fre
quently than In the past.
The islands are, two in number. Sand
Island having 633 acres, and Eastern
Island. 245 acres. There Is a harbor about
eighteen feet deep. The Islands sre deemed
essential to the operation of the Pacific
cable, which will touch there on Its west
