liar Oner Illaconraaed.
Mr. Hay was sreatly disturbed by the
attitude of newspapers, and Senator For
aker said he received a call from him one
Sunday morning and "he seemed distressed
and discouraged. Me showed Senator
Foraker a letter from Ixrd I.ansdowne In
dicating that it would not he worth while
to make an effort to negotiate another
canal treaty unless provision was nude ,
therein for the settlement of the pending
controversy between the United States and
Canada. Mr. May regarded such a treaty
as Impossible and thought it barred further
progress with respoct to the canal.
Drifting Into a general discussion of the
" whole, subject. Srnator, Foraker and Secre
tary Hay, ft appears agreed that It would
be Idle to undertake to secure the ratifica
tion of any treaty that flatly prohibited
fortification by the Vnlted Ktatcs or In
volved this government In any obligation
to consult any other power regarding pro
tection of Its awn property. Renator For
aker suggested several changes from the
convention which had been rejected by
5reat Britain, among them new matter,
and some transportations that would soften
' Polirlnar thr Canal.
They Included the following provision:
"The canal shall never be blockaded,
nor shall any right of war he exercised,
nor any act of hostility be committed
within It. The ' United Slates, however,
shall be at liberty to maintain such mili
tary police along the canal as may be
necessary to protect It against lawless
ness and disorder.''
Senator Foraker said that he marked
these changes In a copy of the first Hay-i'auue-rfote
treaty which was handed to
him by Mr. May, who took It away with
him. and In the fall of the tame year, on
August 23, JftOl, wrote to Ihe senator In
confidence that he hoped to conclude a
new treaty with England In line with ' all
the suggestions which you kindly made

Intention to Protect.
Quuotlng from the Spooner law providing
the construction of the canal and
from the treaty with Panama. Senator
Foraker shows It to have been set forth
e'early that It was the Intention of the
I'nited States to protect the canals and
harbors. The Panama treaty usea the
words, "The I'nited Slates shall have the
right 10 establish fortifications"
He cites the fact that the British govern
ment did not raise any question as to the
S poorer law r the Panama treaty being
in contravention of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty. He said that he supposed, and
he thought other senators were of the same
opinion, that the British government recog
nised and undurstood that when the second
Hay-Pauncefote treaty was ratified It was
a matter left wholly to the discretion of
the I'nited Slates "o determine to what

Harrington Is enraged beeause he wa
taken off railroad as chairman and re
duced to a ubordlnate . position on that

Two of the committees a tho democrat
have fixed up their own share of the posi

Cities and Towns -Mortality, Bullu.
Boland and Holmes of Douglas, Hatfield.

The senate committee on committees will
probaly havo no trouble In getting Its
selections accepted without a fight and
most of them are made up.
The most Important ones as they will
finally stand are:

Privileges and elections will he made up
with Lee, Talcott. Albert, Hod In son and
Reagan, democrats; and Brown and J.
M. t'ox, republicans.
As this committee will probably have tha
county option bill in the smalt also, tha
fact that there are only two republican
on It may affect that Issue.
I. nil Before litrni.
The quiet around legislative headquar
ters today Is the lull that precedes the
storm. No committee or medicine mixer
are working, but most of them are doing
some heavy thinking that 1 expected to
bear fruit either In the proposed demo
cratic house caucus, scheduled for tomor
row night, or on the floor of the house.
Roth the house and senate committees on
committees are now about ready to re
port and tomorrow I hey will publicly an
nounce the decisions which have been the
occasion of so much guesswork for sev
eral days. Speaker Kuhl, chairman of
the house committee, expect to finish par
celing out the various positions very
shortly after the other members of lh
committee get bark. Senator Ollls, chair
man of the upper house committee, say
that the choices which he ha made can
be ratified In an hour's time unless there
Is revolt among the senators, as (here Is
si:re to bo among the representatives.
Kotouc. MrKlsslok, Sagl and oth'crs
among the wet democrats, Quackenhusli
and his band of nine dry democrats are
making coy advance toward getting to
gether because fcpeaker Kuhl and Douglaa
county have crowded them out of the lime
light. They refuse to take what one of th
other faction sarcastically termed "nice,
easy Jobs, where there ia nothing to do."
They thirst for labor and want to take the
responsibilities of i tinning the state onto
their own shoulder. Falling to gel a h .n -a
to labor they thirst for blo d. That is why
Speaker Kuhl has a worried look and hides
hla aecret dread of what la going to break
over hlin when he trie to get the dispen
sation of his committee ratified In caucus.
Oiilr Our Isaae,
The anions of this commute have si
riven open the harmony of th ileinociat.c
majority that such small (natters as
county option are being completely for
gotten. Wets and dry In the comm .n
disappointment of being turned down In
their chairmanship aspirations art mak
ing a common cause and the liquor issue
is rapidly being pushed Into the back
ground aa a bads of oblivion.
Most of the legislators who are out of
town will return tomorrow and get read
to begin actual work Tuesday morning.
