Senator Gulloin Presents an Aran-
ment In Favor of the
Senator Bacon Contends That the
Hay-Pauncefote Treaty Does Not
Place the Isthmian Canal Directly
Under American Control He Has
No Intention of Voting for the
Treaty, but Will Do Nothing- to
Obstruct the Ratification Senator

Washington. Doc. 11. Two speeches
on the Hny-I'auncefote tioiity weie
in.ule in tin.- executive session of the
senate today, one by Senator Hncon, In
opposition to tin' tieaty and the other
bj Senator Cullom, the prospective
I'h.ilriniiii of the committee on foielgu
relations, in support of It.
Mr. Huron replied to the speech made
yestcithiy by Senator Lodge. Me
.summed up Ids objection in the state
ment that lie could not freely accept
any treaty which does not place the
isthmian canal entirely under Ameti
enn auspices and American control.
Tills, he said, the pending treaty does
not do. nor does it do anything like
it. It did not by long odds accomplish
what had been accomplished by the
senate amendments made to the Hay
Pauncefote treaty at the last session of
The Davis uniendiiieid. he said, Ii.irl
abiogated all the objectionable provis
ions of thiil treaty as negotiated and
It did not matter what provisions theie
were in the agreement so long as the
1'nited States were authorized as they
were by the principal .Davis amend
ment, to secure the safety and main
tenance, of tilt" canal by their own
force. That amendment had given this
country a. free hand to do what was
necessary for the protection and de
fense of the ennui, whereas the present
treaty carries all the restrictions which
were oilglnally contained in the old
treaty, leaving out the inodillcations of
the Davis amendment. lie also point
ed out that the treaty reproduces the
restrictions of the old Suez canal trea
ty, which had been incorporated in
tin1 original convention, lie charges
that these restrictions had been copied
almost verbatim from the old treaty,
the only material change being in the
omission of the words "in time of wai
ns in time of peace" from rule 1 of the
"ilea canal agreement. This omission
lid not, in his opinion, change the
character of the agreement. "The only
reply." he said, "which the advocates
of the treaty make to criticisms is that
the canal would be under the full con
trol of the United States in lime of
war, but this is no more true now titan
tinder the old treaty and it is a strange
thing that all the provisions refer to
the control of the canal in war not
withstanding It is contended hero that
in that contingency the removal or this
phrase places the canal under our abso
War Restrictions Inconsistent.
He said the war restrictions of the
treaty were entirely inconsistent with
the claims of Senator Lodge that this
country should say who should use the
canul and who should not, in case of
hostilities. He contended that the only
power given to the United States
which was not given to Great Iiritaln
was found in the last sentence of regu
lation two, providing that "the United
States shall be at liberty to maintain
such military police along the cunal as
may be necessary to protect :' against
lawlessness and disorder."
This, he said, was not sullleient to
make the canal an American Institu
tion, and if the Davis amendment hud
been necessary to render the original
treaty acceptable, It was equally ne
cessary in this instance. He consid
ered the pending treaty every whit as
objectionable as the treaty of last ses
sion. In loncluding, Mr. Huron announced
that while he had no intention of vot
ing for thn treaty, ho would do noth
ing to obstruct Its ratllication.
Senator Ciilloiu congratulated the
senate and the country upon the fact
that there ato two things In coiui-h-lion
with the new tieaty upon wlheh,
he said, practically all are agreed. One
of thfcu was the desirability of the
suppression of thn t'layton-Hulwer
treaty, and the other that of the neces
sity of the coiistiuutlon of an Isthmian
Hn contended that the now treaty
ladlcally Umngos the conditions pre
sented liy the first Hay-l'auncefoto
treaty, clearly relieving It of the neies
slty of such an iitueudiiieiu us that
made to the old treaty upon the sug
gestion of Senator Davis, because the
treaty Itself would penult the United
States, under international hw, to own,
manage and defend the canal In any
way that It may chose, n other
words, liq added, In a war with tlreat
Tirltulu ot with any other power, tlm
treaty would be suspended, under tlm
law which governs nations, until the
war shoiJd bo concluded, when It
would bo jovlved and tiguin Antnrcd,
Ho dwelt, tunon the fact, Fj-'lb he
said, was jhu most Importunt $ruum
s tu nee to lo considered, that the new
treaty supWbede.s and abrogates the
Clayton-HuWer convention of lbM ami
for this rcWui would be of untold
value to thuVountry,
He ndmlttVl that the new tieaty re
tains the sc't-'ial principle of neutral- I
hatlon, as did the oilglnal liny
Pauuccfolt tiealj, but he urged that
It does not I unci or keep alive any
of the plovlslons of the treaty of I.SRO.
Senator Cullom urged thai there Is no
piovlslun In the pending convention
which would Intel fere with our right
as a nation to close up the water-way
to any belligerent power.
He contended that the piovlslou ill
regard to the policing of the canal
applies only to Its contiol in times of
peace and not in time of war. Then,
the United Stales, being the owner ol
tile pioperty, under the terms of the
law, 11 could coutiul it with either the
police or a military power, as It might
ehoiwo, for the protection of our gov
ernment and its propel ty.

number of diamond rings were missing.
Last Monday the Johnson woman
called at the otlicc of a Douglas street
pawnbroker with a brooch, on which
the broker made a loan of SHOO, for
which amount he gave his check. The
woman gave her address and left his

mitted the robbery and then turned
the booty over to Woods and several
companions, who went east. The de
lay in making the arrest of the real

Washington, Dec. It. The Democrat

of the present session, its purpose was
lo consider committee assignments, but
the occasion was more than oidlnarlly
significant because of tho general at
tendance upon the caucus. All the sen
ators elected are Democrats, with the
exception of Senator McLauiln, of
rioutli Carolina, were present, as were
all the senators who were elected as
silver Republicans or Populists. All the
independents except Senator Teller, of
Colorado, had entered the Democratic
caucus held before adjournment last
March, but Senator Teller then re-
'mnlned away. He was piesent, how
ever, at today's conference and partici
pated in the proceedings. The caucus
was called at the instance of Senator
Jones, of Arkansas, who slated that
he had thought It possible that the
new senators might want to make some
change in the olllcers of the caucus.
There was, however, a general expres

to decrease the Democratic membership
of a few of the committees, Tho most
Important change suggested by them
was that the Republicans should be

should agree to surrender one of the

New York, Dec. 11. A. .1. Cassutt,
president ol the Pennsylvania railroad,
today mode public Ids plan for secur
ing a New Vonk terminus for his com
pany, lie made the following state
ment lo the Associated Press:
Tho Penn.vlvanla Ralhoad company
Is now preparing to carry out its policy,
long since adopted, of extending Us
railroad into New York city, therein
establishing a suitable passenger ter
minus for the accommodation of the
public. To accomplish this on a com-
1 prehensivo plan, the Long Island in
tension Railroad company will ulth-
draw Its npplli atlon for powers to con
struct its terminal railroad, and in lieu
j of such independent construction, it is
( now propi.seii to hulld, under the char
, lor or the Pennsylvania-New York Kx

h'.etl and a New Jersey ralhoad com
( p-in.v. about to be organized, ,i throut;li

Lone, Island railroad and the Pennsyl
vania lines in New Jersey, and to eon
struct a proper and commodious joint
iindorgioiind tcimimil station in New
Yorlx i liy for the Pcnns.Ivaiiia and
Long Island railroads.
"After years of r-xhnustiv" study,
the oiii'liislon has been reached that a
tunnel line, operaterl by electricity, is
in ecry n the most, pi.ictical. eco
nomical and the best both for the in
terests of the railroad company and of
the city. Tlv line as adopted will
travel sc (!i city of New York from lite
Hudson river to the Kast river and be
undergiiumd throughout and at such
depth as not to interfere with future
coii'iti uctinn of subways by the city on
all its aenues. similar to the one now
building along Kourth avenue.
"As the railroad will be wholly un
derground and operated electrically, in
the same manner as the recently con
structed Oilcans railway extension in
Paris, It will not be objectionable in
any way. There will not be any smoke,
lit t or noise, and as all Hie surface
property may be built upon after being
utilized underneath for railroad pur
poses, the neighborhood of the station
will be improved, 1usle.ul of marred,
as is so often the ease when railroad
lines are constructed on the surface or
elevated. The company has acquired
the bulk of Its pioperty for in princi
pal stations and means to go fa.rwn.rd
in the aciiulsition of such additional
properties as will be required, either by
purchase or condemnation, in the be
lief' that the city authorities will meet
their application in a spirit of fairness
and expedite, as much as possible, this
much-needed improvement and great
public convenience. Immediately upon
the necessary authority being granted,
the work or construction will proceed
ami the whole line be completed and
put in operation as soon as possible.-'

BASE BALL REVOLUTION
SCHEME IS DEAD
Magnates Decide the League Is a
Perpetual Body A. O. Spald
ing Is Made President.

New York, Dee. II. John T. Crush's
scheme for a revolution of the national
game Is dead. At the meeting at the
Fifth Avenue Hotel today, the National
League magnates decided by a major
ity vote that the league was a per
petual body and did not cease with
the expiration or tlie Indianapolis
agreement, December 18. It was de
cided also that no club can be ex
pelled from the league except tor
specific causes, as set forth in the con
stitution and by-laws of the organisa
tion. Thus Sir. Hrush's plan for syn
dicate base ball came to an end.
The vote followed a resolution to de
clare the league out of existence on
and after Dec. is. For several hour's
the matter had been discus.-id and
argued pro and con. The speeches, it
Is said, were stonny ones. Charges of
bail tnith were rrequently made on
both sides. Finally a vote was taken.
The result, according to excellent au
thority, showed that Brooklyn, Boston,
Philadelphia and Chicago were against
the motion. St. Louis voted aye, while
New York and Cincinnati did not vote.
The vote, it is said, means that the
National League Is back where it war.
before the signing of tho Indinnapolis
agreement in ISS1,
An attempt was made at today's
meeting to elect A. (5. Spalding presi
dent. It was at tlrst. reported that ho
had been beaten, but this turned out
to be untrue. Shortly after the mag
nates went into session, Dreyfus, ol
Pittsburg, made a motion that the
election of officers be proceeded with.
This was amended that A. (1. Spald
ing be unanimously elected president.
The hitch was doing uwny with the
regular order of business so as to pro
ceed with the election. In the regular
order, the representatives of the board
of directors anil those of various com
mittees must be heard before the elec
tion can be proceeded with. When the
matter was put to a vote, lioston, Cin
cinnati, St. Louis and New York voted
for proceeding in the regular order,
thereby setting back Mr. Spalding's
election until later. It is said, upon
good authority, that at least live of
the clubs favor the election of Mr.
Spalding. They are Pittsburg, Hoston,
Chicago, Hrooklyn and Philadelphia.
At S.SO o'clock tonight the league rul
ers began another session, at which
they listened to tlie report of the board
of directors. The meeting adjourned
