Opinion nt Wnshlngloit Holds Her
1 Washington, Jan. 22. Germany
is going too far. The second un-
'warranted nttack on San Carlos
! shows that her course of action in
South America is a menace to the
This is the opinion which practi
cally every official of prominence in
the 1 administration now holds.
There is no official comment.
Usually when unofficial sentiment
is apprehensive official utterances
arc designed to dispel anxiety, but
such is not the case now. The
officials of the State Department
arc reticent and this reserve, is
ominous in itself. Itis now believed
here that Germany has designated
1 attacks on San Carlos in order to
1 embarrass the negotiations for a
'settlement of the differences which
Mr. Boweu has come to Washing
ton to conduct. This is an
evidence that Germany does not
want a settlement, but does
want to continue to stir up all the
trouble possible in South America
so that these designs for the nquisi
I tion of territory there may be better
! carried out.
The condition here was compared
by a high official to-day to that
which existed in the United States
before the war with Spain. The
I Government resents the action ol a
1 foreign power. Public sentiment,
he said, is being worked ton high
pitch. And public sentiment will
force any action by this country
just as it did when the administra
tion of President McKinley was
doing all it could to avert the in
evitable conflict with Spain.
There are still reports current
here that the State Department has
called on Germany to explain her
reasons for bombarding San Carlos.
It is officially denied that this hag
been done. The non-participation
of British battleships in the bom
bardment is taken as an indication
by some that England does not ap
prove of the course of action follow
ed by Germany, and predictions
are made that England will take
her first opportunity to withdraw
from an alliance so obnoxious to
the English people.
If the alliance is broken Germany
will be robbed .of an opportunity to
further her territorial ambitions
under the cloak of Great Britain.
This makes it felt that Germany
will not go so far as to perform any
act which will cause Kngland to
bteak the alliance.
On the other hand, it is believed
that it will not take much to induce
England to withdraw and leave
Germany in the lurch. The termi
nation of this alliance agreement
would prevent any similar alliance
in future. England is somewhat
depending on Germany tor as
sistance should events in the Ear
East so develop that England
would stand on one side and Ger
many 011 the other.
, Telegraph L'oslngo.
That idea that a letter placed in
a suitable receptacle could be con
veyed by electricity nt a rate well
nigh comparable to that of the ex
press trains, says the London Chro
nicle, seems to have struck an Jta
lian experimenter, Piscicelli by
name. The nearest approach to
the system is that of ."telepherage,"
but here the rate of progression is,
of course, relatively slow. In the
case of the Piscicelli system it is
intended that the letters should be
conveyed in boxes composed of
aluminum along wires arranged on
the overhead system analogous to
that .seen in the tramways of many
towns. Experiments are to he
made with the system between
Rome nud Naples, but there are so
many very obvious difficulties in
the way of the scheme becoming
generally useful that we may nwait
the results of these experiments lie
fore hailing the invention as n bene
fit to mankind at large.

Washington, Jan. 22. The
tr'catv between the United States
and Columbia for the construction
of the Panama canal by the United
States was signed today in this city.
The report of the signing was n
No details of the signing of the
treaty were obtainable, but nt the
Presidential reception at the White
House tonight news that the treaty
between the two countries at last
was an accomplished fact leaked
out. Later the newswns confirmed
in official quarters. It had been in
tended not to make the signing of
the treaty public until tomorrow,
but the news apparently was too
good for some of the friends of the
canal to keep.
Pears had been entertained until
this week that Columbia would not
be willing to accede to the wishss
of the United States in the matter,
and that recourse to the Nicaragua
canal project might be forced on the
Government of the United States.
But this week events took a more
favorable turn and Columbia trans
mitted instructions and authority
to Dr. Herrnn, its representative in
the United States, that made possi
ble a conclusion of the long nego
tiations. The principal obstacle for some
time to the conclusion of the treaty,
it is understood, has been the price
that the United States was to pay
in the shape of n cash payment nud
by way of annual rental for the
strips of territory nlong each side of
the canal right of way. It could
not be learned tonight what was
the price finally agreed on.
Some time ago there was a hitch
over the question of the extent to
which control by the United States
over this strip of' land should go
Columbia objecting on the ground
that the provisions required in the
treaty of the United States would
mean n relinquishment of sover
eignty by Columbia over part of
her territory, but this matter was
amicably adjusted, a- was a differ
ence as to the lifetime of the lease
of the, strip uf land in question, the
final result being n pmctical cession
in perpetuity of the strip to the
Uuifd States for canal purposes
and rucidental police control and
protection of the canal right of way.
The canal treatv was signed at
Secretary Hay's house this after
noon, Mr. Hay acting for the
United States and Dr. Herran, the
Charge d' Affaires of Columbia, who
had been specially given full powers
to negotiate the treaty, signing it
The treaty will have to go to the
Senate for ratification and it is be

body tomorrow. It is stated that
details of the agreement will not be
