Our Halations With Nicaragua CoDcarn
. tlta Vaaalt ,.
Washington, Nov. 6. It is snid at
the state doparttnunt that our govern
ment has not protested against tbe ac
tion of the Nicaragua government in
granting a ooncewlon for the building
of the Nicaragua oanal to Eyre & Cra
gin, after the expiration of the Marl
time company's concession next Octo
ber. What the department has done is
not of recc-it date, and consists solely
of making of roprosenations to the Nic
aragua authorities to the effect that
the United Statos deemed it only fair
and proper that the status quo should
be maintained in matters relating to
the Nicaragua oanal until the board,
headed by Admiral Walker, has had
chance to report and congress an op
portunity to consider that report. This
is diplomatically something very differ
ent from a protest. The reasoon that
this action is taken Is that tbe making
of a new concession by tbe Nicaragua
government, even though it will take
effect only upon the expiration of tbe
piesent concession to the Maritime
Cannl Company, might operate to pre
vent the latter from obtaining an ex
tension of Its concession, to which it
might be justly entitled.
'In the event that congress should
legislate upon the basis of the con
strnction of the work nndcr the aus
pices of the Maritime company, this,
of course, would seriously jeopardize
the Interests of tbe United States.
