IW, 'aSI-IINGTON. Dec. 1U. Prompt
action with reference to the
British protest against tho
Panama, toll bill was taken to
day by tho executive branch of
lh United States government.
So far as tho legislative branch Is con
cerned, where iho final action of tho
government must bo framed, there was
scarcely a rlppio of Intorest In Great
Britain's demand. The senate, the ar
biter for this country in treaty making',
practically regards the Panama, tolls
matter as a cloned Incident.
Tho president, with his cabinet and tho
legal authorltlea of tho stale department,
today took up the consideration or those

H ly because the cabinet Is divided In sen-

that this country has an absolute right

Secretary of War Stlmfion Is against
froo passage for American coast ships
from a commercial point of view and this
slant Inclines him to look with tolerance
upon tho British protest. Secretary
