Should the provisional government not

Owing to the decree of the provisional
government making custom house duties

COLOMBIA IS BUSY EXPLAINING
Rejection of Treaty Was Wholly
Fault of Senate, They Re

WASHINGTON, Dee, 4.-Mlnlster Beau,
pre, at Bogota, has advised the State de
partment that the Hay-Herran canal
treaty was rejected by the Colombian sen
ate on Its merits; that Is to say that the
treaty Itself, In Its text and Its spirit, was
regarded as objectionable. Mr. Beaupre Is
comldent that nothing In the instructions
hu had received from Washington relatlvo
to the presentation of the treaty In Bogota
In the slightest degree Influenced the ad
verse 'action upon that convention of the
Colombian senate. The minister's advices
continue to set out the fact that the Co
lombians still are hopeful of being able
to negotiate a new treaty with the United
Htales In ptce of the failing Hay-Horran
treaty, and, regretting the adverse action
of their senate, are willing to extend to
the United States terms much mors favor
- able than those contained In that treaty.
Promises have gone so far as to indicate
that the present oongrrss might be dis
solved and a new congress chosen by order
of the president and that the latter would
see to It that tho new congress would be
favorable to the canal treity, that he
might submit for Its ratification.

ST. PETERSBURG, Dec. 4. Regarding
the statements cabled from Berlin, De
cember 2, that American Jews are no
longer permlted to cross the Russian fron
tier without a special permit. In each case,
from M. von Plehwe, the Russian Interior
minister, the authorities here say no rulea
have been made regarding the admission
of American or other Jews. All foreigners
ar required to have their passports vised
by the Russian consular Or diplomatic
agents abroad, and, except certain privil

declined vises. In accordance with a policy
of long standing. It is fully understood
at the State department at Washington
that without vised passports a special per
mit is required. In the case of Dr. Cohn
of San Francisco, the facts are that he
had been declined a vine, and he applied
through Ambansudor idcCormlek for per
mission to spend three veeks in Warsaw.
Minister von Plehwe thereupon Issued n

SEATTLE. Wash., Dec. 4. A special to

crulnei1 Flora, 'which went on the rocks
yesterday near Village Point, Dennian
Inland. The boat is suspended by the bow
and may prove to be a total wreck. The
bow Is high and dry, well upon the rocks.
The shelving rock rises steeply where It
struck and there are a large number of
houldcr-llke rocks on which the crulnrr la
In danger of breaking Its back with the fall
The crew and officers, who were forced
to the bow, scrambled down onto the rocks
soon after the stranding. The cruiser had
shipped 600 tons of coal at the bunkers at
Union, and soon after the wreck Its crew
lightened It by the removal of 400 tons of
stores, hut the force with which It had
been driven 'On the rocks had sent it too
far up to allow of Its being floated.
It was Just daybrenk yesterday when
the cruiser slid onto the shelf of rock.
The force of the stranding forced the
after part of the veseel low down in the
water and the sea rushed In with such
force through the after-cuppers, which un
fortunately hud been left open, that the
after part of the cruiser soon sank below
the surface. Soon there was ten feet of
water above the after deck, the top of its
Jack staff being just visible.
The stranded British cruiser Is In a much
worse condition than supposed. A large
section of the keel Is torn away. The
cruiser Is lying at an angle of fifteen de
grees with a decided lint to starboard at
low tide. There are Ave fathoms of water
at Us stern and two about amidships. At
low tide forward from funnel It is high and
dry. Serious fears are entertained that
at extreme low tide Itwlll cant over com
pletely. This morning divers succeeded In
cloning the scuppers and an attempt will
be made to float It. There Is a big hole
somewhere in its bottom, probably aft tho
engine rooir which Is uninjured.
This Is' a serious feature of the situation,
for unless repaired and the vessel floated
before heavy gales spring up It Is feared
the cruiser will prove a total wreck. .
Officers and men have been removed from
the vessel and are In camp on Denman
Island, working day and night removing
coal and stores Into scows, which are being
taken to Union Bay. Heavy guns will
also be unshipped and the forward part of
the cruiser dismantled. Naval launches
patrol the vicinity of the wreck ceaselessly
to prevent the approach of strangers. The
admiral and party arrived from the scene

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Dec. 4. (Special Tele
gram.) Senator Millard today introduced a
bill providing for the use of the Fort
Omaha military reservation for officers'
quarters. This 'bill Is Identical In Its pro
visions with one Introduced In the house
last week by Representative Hitchcock
Senator Millard Is beginning to feel the
effects of efforts' being made through the
pressure of the church and kindred organi
zations to work tip sentiment looking to
the expulsion from the United States senate
of Reed Bmoot, senator from Utah. Mr.
Millard today laid before the senate fifteen
petitions, coming from various sections In
Nebraska, protesting against the continu
ance of Senator Smoot as a member of the
upper house of congrens. These pe'Hlons
were nearly all of the printed headlines
variety and signed up by men and women.
They were referred to the committee on
privileges and elections.
Representative Burke of South Dakota,
who has been visiting his father near Ba
tavla, N. T., returned to the capital today.
Senator Klttredge, who has been spend
ing the past week In New Hampshire, was
In hie seat when the senate met this morn
ing. More Fees for officials.
Representative Martin today Introduced
a bill providing that registers and receivers
of United States land offices shall In addi
tion to the fees now allowed by law be en
titled to charge "Vnd receive for making

force and effect as original records.
Troublesome Problem to Solve.
The Indian bureau is now struggling with
the problem of how to equitably distribute
the clerks accredited to the Omaha and
Winnebago reservation under the now
system Inaugurated, which places a bonded
sahool superintendent in charge of each.
There are five clerks and the number five
Is not divisible Into two equal parts, and
then again salaries differ much, running
from $1,400 per annum down to $fin0 yearly.
Perhaps the ultimate solution of the matter
of dividing the Ave clerks can only be
solved by securing authorization for the
appointment of an additional clerk. -Each
bonded superintendent believes he should
have three clerks to properly conduct the
li slness of the schools. The Indian com
missioner Is now endeavoring to adjust the
clerical kaslgnments on the Omaha and
Winnebago reservations In SJch manner
as to be satisfactory to all concerned.

said today when usked concerning the re
port that the Great Northern had made a
special low rate of steel rails from Chicago
to the orient In order to help out American
contractors in China who were hard pressed
We are carrying steel tails to China on
the same rate today that lias been in effect
for several years. But there is a very in
teresting phase of trade right here under
your noneB that people lo not neem to have
rotlced, and that In the volume of flour
going from Minneapolis to Australia arul
China. It would surprise the public to
know' that the Minneapolis millers have to
go away down Inio Indian Territory In
order to get enough wheat to grind. Tho
northwestern grain Is not nulflrietit for the
demand. I received a letter from one of
the leading Minneapolis millers today tell
ing me of a ingle order lie had received
from the orient. It would surprise you If
I should name the size of that order, but I
am not at liberty to do so.
We are today hauling flour 2.400 miles by
rail and 6,fcJ miles by water for only 15 or
30 cents morn than It costs to haul Minne
apolis flour DUO miles to the Atlantic sea
board. "And all this," Mr. Hill added, sarcastic
ally, is In restraint of trade,"
