Abrogation of the Clayton-Bulwer

QUESTION Or ROUTES IS UP NOW.
Senator McMillan Opposes Boutell'a
bcbenie to Abrogate the Itush
Washington, Nov. 13. The prospect
of rhe new canal treaty sailing through
the senate smoothly is said to be en
hanced greatly by the announcement
that the United States has promised
England nothing Jn consideration of
her consent to the abrogation of the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty. This announce
ment has official earmarks and should
quiet several belligerent statesmen
who assumed the fear that I'ncle Sam
intended to concede a great deal for
the sake of getting a treatv agreeble
to the senate. All sorts of stories have
been told about the I'nited States giv
ing England a slice of Alaskan terri
tory in return for surrender of British
rights In the 1st limn.
We Hate Nothing; to 1'ay.
The assertion is now made, how
ever, that no consideration was grant
I or askd. This Is considered sur
prising by those who believed Kugland
would not give all for nothing. Tin

fore him In black and white within ten
days. While Ihe substance of the

of the diplomats, it is considered essen
tial that the wording of llie measure

Canal Cgnxroiatlou Uu a Ijttth4-
Yesterday the isthmian canal com
mission met In Bear Admiral Walk
er's office to consider formally the re
port to be made to the president and
congress. Several days will be devoted
to reviewing the coinninnlcnt ion nnd
Its contents will not be given out be
fore it has been rend by the govern
ment. The intimation that the com
mission will not recommend either the
Panama or the Nicaragua route prc1
ably is true, as the members do not
care to assume responsibility In view
of the complicated con d it ion of the
Panama part of the deal.
England Favor tlie Nicarncna Ttonte.
Experience indicates that England Is
inclined to favor the Nicaragua route,
and it Is not likely the Panama com
pany's offer to sell out will facilitate
matters. On the contrary, the asser
tion has been made that President Hu
tin. of the company, wishes merely to
tie up the enterprise. If this is true
he will le wihed godspeed by the
railroad interests, which desire to post

M'MIIXAX AMAOOMZKS BOl'TELL.
Senator Don Not He Ire the Abrogation of
the ICuli-It;ot Trenty.
Washington. Nov. 13. Senator Mc
Millan, of Michigan, cr.lled on the
president yesterday, but did net have a
long conference, as it was cabinet day.
McMillan is opposed to the abrogation
of the Bnsh-Bagot treaty, which is Ie-
sed by Congrcssiunn Boutell. The sen
ator makes the point tliat most of the
large lake ciiies are on the American
side, and that they would be menaced
if England had an armed fleet in these
waters. Senator McMillan is author
ity for the statement that the lake ship
builders ::re not asking fcr the change
proposed by Boutell. ns they have all
the work they can handle in building
ships for commerce. Seaking of the
subsidy question the senator said he
favored a subsidy based on tonnage
and not on speed.
Without desiring to discourage Us
promoters, memliers of congress say
they do not expe the reciprocity con
vention to be held here next week will
result in definite plans. The Interests
are so conflicting that the opinion Is
held that general resolutions indorsing
reciprocity as a principle will be the
extent of the work accomplished. The
manufacturers managing the tariff
"gabfest" are in earnest, howrver. and
predict that something more material
than talk will come out of the meet
ing. Theodore C. Search, of Philadel
phia, president of the organization, has
announced the programme, which de

nnd Spanish-American countries. The

CAUGHT TAKING CORN
Neighbors March John Schufer and
Son to Police Head
quarters. There was a mild panic at the po
lice Mat ion last evening when 11 party
of heavy-handed citizens marched in
to the place with John Schafer, of
South Hock Island, and his 14-year-old
son, and announced that they
had the corn thieves. There was
more surprise when 1 he prisoners ad
mitted their guilt and offered their
captors reasonable' terms of settle
ment. The John Schafer in qeustion was
no other than the one who formerly
conducted a saloon on Market square
and who now owns valuable property
011 that thoroughfare. He is at pres
ent living in a line residence outside
of the city limits at the head of Thirty-second
street. One of his neigh
bors is William Maak, who has a held
of corn which has not yet been harv
ested. Hccently Maak noticed that
his com was disappearing; and be
laid complaint with the police, stat
ing that he had seen a man pass from
his field into the house inhabited by
Schafer. lie was told to go home
and secure more tangible evidence
and his success was most complete,
lie organized some of his neighbors
into a watcli party and last evening
after dark their vigils were rewarded
by finding the above pair with a sack
gathering corn. The two were taken
in charge and marched with consid
erable show to the station.
Sehafer's story was that he had
ordered corn from a feed store for
delivery yesterday and it did not
come. Being adverse to seeing his
horses go hungry, he went out to
provide for them in the easiest man
ner, intending all the while to reim
burse the owner -of the corn for what
he took. Maak did not wish to pros
ecute so long as M-natrr was wining
to pay a good round price for the
grain, so tlie police preierreu cnarges
of disorderly conduct against the
prisoner and Magistrate Johnson
thought $20 would be about right.
