WASHINGTON, October 1.?The Stato
Department to?day received a cal ?legra in
liom Minister Beaupr?, at Bogota, dated
September 30th, statfnB that the com?
mittee ?? the Colombian Senate, which
was appointed during tin? first debate on
tin- report of the canal I'orniilHtee to
prepare the Tnaterini for the second do?
liate, lias submitted lis reports and it
win i>e debated In a fow day-:. This re?
port approves tlie rejection of the treaty

tlon to i-iia-ei a law I'j empower the
president to open up negotiations for the.
construction Of it canal muier certain
specified conditions. The Object, the cable
grain states, apparently Is to have tho
Colombian government at liberty to ne?
gotiate u iresli treaty without restric?

that the report Will probably be adopted.
The news contained In the above cable?
gram is not considered of a very favor?
able character at the Btato Department,
Indicating, as It does, that the Colombian
Ci.tigress will refuse to give the presi?
