ROBERT DE BILLY DEPARTS.
Makes Interesting Comment on
the Country From the Stand
point of a Thinker and
New York, June 19. Robert de Billy, a
member of the mission sent to the unveil
ing of the Rochambeau statue at Washing
ton by President Loubet, and himself a.
member of the Cabinet of II. Delcasse.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, failed for
France to-day on the steamship Touralne.
M. de Bil.y declined to be interviewed on
an pMiueal subject, explaining courteous
v that bis position in the French Foreign
I'ffic preentfd. but of his visit he said:
Ameri.-a, which to the average Ftench
rnin is only a eountry where rapid fortunes
lire made. Is for the well-educated French
man a land of universities I mean a land
where knowledge is cultivated with a real
passion for truth and an entirely unpreju
diced mind. This Is a point where America
and France are closely connected. AH
French effort since the Revolution has been
toward finding laws which would apply not
only to the Frenchman, but to all man
kind. "In Franco that effort lias been success
ful, as many rations of Kurope have been
transformed bv our methods; but we paid
a high price for that result, as we had to
right against our neighbors, and even
nralnst our own citizens. You had the diffi
cult tafk of raising to the standard of Dem
ocratic principles tae millions of subjects
of Kings and Emperors, who camo over tile
ocean to vou. Hut your experiences have
been more successful in that line than ours,
because In a country where rank and title
do not exist It Is easier to make laws for
man considered as an American citizen.
Therefore, In France, we look to your
Democracy as the greatest community
where I'emocratic methods have succeeded
uuil the opinion of the well-educated Amer
ican is most valuable to us. as we believe
you to be the most Impartial of all foreign
nations on Continental affairs.
"Reciprocally. It seems that our continu
ous effort toward truth and Justice, al
though It Is met by great difficulties, de-s.i-i-i
the attention of American opinion.
and that If the unlvrslty man In America
knows all, the avenge man of the street
knows ven- little about us.
"The task of the papers and reviews and
I am aware that they already understand It
thoroughly Is to place before the eyes of
the readers all the facts showing that our
intellectual effort Is directed toward the
same end as that of the United States, and
that In affairs where America Is Interested
our opinion is the most Impartial and the
most friendly that exists on the Continent.
"I leave America, after a stay of a month,
with most agreeable memories, and I hope
the vllt r.f the Rochambeau Mission will
leave a lasting memory of good will be
tween our two Republics."

PANAMA'S lini'IlESEXTATIVB if
SAYS TITLE IS All- RIGHT.
Washington, June 19. M. Lampre,
secretary of the new Panama Com- !
pany, who came to this country to -
make the final offer of the canal prop-
erty lor w,ihj.wu, said:
"If tho House accepts the Senate bill

Washington, June !. After a contest
that will be historic, the Senate to-day
passed Senator Spooner's substitute for the
Hepburn canal bill, providing for the con
struction of an Isthmian canal. It Is a bill
in the Interest of the Panama Canal Com
pany only so far as It provides that the
President shall authorize the construction
of a canal via Panama If he can get a
clear title and acquire the Panama property
If he cannot acquire the Panama property
and get clear title, then he Is to authorize
tho construction of a cannat via. lake
The vote was not quite so close as was
expected, because, when It became appar
ent that the Spooner amendment would
win by a small margin, three or four Sena
tors flopped over.
The real test vote came on substituting
the Spooner bill, which was ayes 42, nays
34, a majority of eight.
SENATOR MORGAN SAYS
CANAL IS ASSURED.
Senator Morgan, who for neatly thirty
years has been lighting and working every
day for a Nicaraguan canal, now says that
the action of the Senate to-day. In his opin
ion. Insures a canal across the isthmus. It
was expected that he would take a very
gloomy view and Insist, as he has been In
sisting In the Senate, that the passage o
the Spooner bill would mean no canal at alL
On the contrary, he Is satisfied that the
outlook Is encouraging, and believes a canal
by way of Panama will be speedily con
structed. Interest, of course, at once shifts to the
House. It 1b expected that Representative
Hepburn, chairman of the Committee on
Interstate and Foreign Commerce, will fight
the Spooner amendment, but practically all
the leaders there are In favor of accepting
It rather than even the risk of going before
the people at the fall elections with no
legislation at all.
Speaker Henderson and Representatives
Payne, Cannon and Grosvenor. are all In
favor of accepting the Spooner bill. Indeed,
there Is little doubt that the Spooner bill

How much In earnest the Senate was Is
shown by the fact that It adopted as an
amendment to the Spooner bill elaborate
provisions, offered by Senator Bacon, pro
viding for the appointment of a commission
that shall have charge of construction, and
also adopted an amendment, offered by
Senator Fairbanks, which Is a provision au
thorizing the Issuance of $130,000,000 of bonds,
to be taken by popular subscription, which
are to run for ten years.
As a further Illustration that It Intends
to sta. J or fall by the Spooner bill, the
Senate went through the fiction of Insist
ing upon its amendment to the House canal
legislation, and appointed a committee to
confer with tho House Senators Morgan,
Hanna and KIttrcdge.
These three Senators, It Is expected, will
stand together because Senators Hanna and
Klttredge are enthusiastic supporters of the
Spooner bill, and Senator Morgnn has ac
quiesced In the day's work of the Senate.

Senate will fall $31,000,000 short of paying

HOUSE LEADERS INCLINED
TO ACCEPT SUBSTITUTE.
No sooner did the news of the passage of
the Spooner substitute reach the House
Uian a canvas of sentiment was begun by
leading members to ascertain the probable
outcome. Lieutenants of Speaker Hender
son were among the various members talk
ing over the situation and conspicuous on
the floor, as also getting at the feeling of the
House, were Representative Cannon, chair
man of the Committee ond Appropriations,
and Representative Burton, chairman of
the Commutes on Rivers and Harbors.
Representative Hepburn, the father of tho
bill in tho House, won very much disap

to within half an hour before It was taken
hoped that the NlcarJgua route would be
one of the House conferees Uiat he should
stand out for the Houso bill, unless It
should become apparent that by this action
no legislation would result.
It Is known, however, that nearly all of
the House leaders, fearing to go before the
country with no Nicaragua canal legisla

now bendinc their efforts toward getting

Something about $1,000 Is said to have been

as to whether any one had tried to serve a
