Delivers Most Vigorous Attack
on Attitude of U. S. in Pan
APPEALS FOR ARBITRATION
'We Long- Asserted Central
America Had No Right to
Debar World from Pass

Washington, Jan. 21 "Shall wc in
form the world that the Unltod States
Is fain- to its agreements, false, to Its
pledged wot- IV .Shall wo have It matin
known the world over that you must
look out for the Piilted States or It
will get tlie advantage of you? T'tat
It Is astute, cunning, slippery?"
With this vigorous denunciation of
the attitude of thl country In tho
I'anama cnnal controversy with Great
lirltaln, Senator Mllhit Hoot closed a
two-hour speech In thn Senate to-day
with an ajipeal for tho submission of
t ie Panama ciuestlon to arbitration
or the reju-al of that soctlon of tho
cnnal law that would give, free pass
age to American coastwise ships.
Sjieaklng from the experience of a
member of President Ttootevelt's cab
inet wii-m the Panama canal zone was
purchased and when over 2n arbitra
tion treaties were made with foreign
nations. Senator Knot delivered fie
most vigorous attack on the present
attitude of the I'nlti-d States that has
been heard since tlie Panama contro
versy with r.rcat lirltaln arose.
It h-ranie known following the senator's
address that Senator lirandegee. chair
man of tlie Intcrocoanle canals committee,
will cull a meeting within a few days to
tnl'.e up Senator Tlont's amendment for
the rejienl of the fiee toll provision. Led
by fen. ltois Hoot and lirandegee, both of
whom opiiosci the original passage of
tills provision, a determined effort will be
made at this session of Congress to
clinngi- the law before It goes into effect
at tin- canal so thai the cause of dispute
with ejieat Hiitalu will be removed.

Senator Hoot declared tlie fnlted States
would violate all of Its pledges and
liroiiilses to the wot id; would be guilty
of "false prvteiifciv." In Its advocacy ot
general ai Miration and would proclaim
iiM'll indifferent to iiatinn.il honor and
Iniigiity. If It refused to submit to
ai liltr.itlon, or to retreut from the unjust
lio.-liloii It had taken.
lie declared free coastwise tolls to
Auiiileuu ships wen- illecral unless the
same concessions were- made to foreign
shioii. TI.e claim that tile I'nlted States
l ad ilotneMlrr lights over the canal, he
cause it owned the canal zone, constituted
a violation of tlie express guarantee of
tin- Pulled States to (Jriat, In- said.
"It Is not our territory except In trust,"
he declared, "treaty or no treaty, we have
long asserted thut the nations of Central
Amerlian had 110 right to dbar the world

our entire lo tion, which resulted In our

"The Putted States had preached arbl

and bud besought tbe nations of the
world 'To niter Into arbitration agree

"..re we Pharisees?" he cried. "Have

He Term Invention "Cold Light.'-
i'aris, Jon. 20. M. Dussaud, a French
fx-ientlst. who has discovered a moans
for the production of what ho terms
"cold light," gave to-day some details
of his discovery, which It Is thought
may revolutionize electric lighting.
Stnrting on the principle thnt reat Is as
essential to matter as to animal organ
Imu, he has constructed nn ele-ctric lamp.
In which the light Is concentrate-el on a
single point by filaments working suc
cessively, thence the light Is projected
through a lens magnifying a thousand,
fold. Thus lie has succeeded In concen
trating a 2.W0 candle power light on
one point and In passing its volts Into
nn eight-volt lamp, which with the ordin
ary light would burst.
nxjierlments with this lamp have
established that the new light Is ab
solutely without clangor, ns no heat Is
given off and It requires a hundred
times less current than the ordinary
lamp. It can he worked by a tiny
battory or sufficient motive power
can bo obtnlned from a jot of wator
from nn ordinary faucet, or oven a
squirrel turning a rage,
Thn light, It Is said, offers a great
uilvantage In photography, as Its pho
togenic jiower Is four times that of
the magnesium llashllght,

U Washington. Jan. 20. Control that
