Tho examination today was with rcf- H
crenco to tho reasons why tho canal K
commission changed Its recoinmcnda- H
lions from the Nlcnrngua to the Pana- m
ma mute. The reasons given by tho wit- m
n.-es for Mill change, siimm.d up. aro M
that tho Pamm 1 r.uito Is much shorter .m
and has fewer curves, nnd that those m
curves which do exist aro not so sharp m
as the curves In the Nicaragua route. H
Ho also said ho bcllevesl that with ;-H
proper qiiarantlno regulations tho ,H

With reference to tho dam Admiral H
Walker said be had no doubt that tho . m
engineering dllllculllcvs could bo over- H
come, and ho nlso expressed the opln- H
ion tint tho water supply would bo m
"Tlcvldatcd, In reply to Questions by 'M
other Scnitors, that ono of the curves .fJH
In tho PnimmA waterway would bo gH
qulln sharp, but ho was of tho- op In- vH
Ion that steam vessels would bo tiblo (H
to round It. Ho also snld that the liar-
1or at Panama could bo maintained nt gH
a nominal cost. fvggfl
Senator Morgan nucstloned tho wit- ,ih
ness nt length with reference to tho m
commission's investigation of tho power m
of tho new Panama Canal company to
transfer tho property nnd glvo clear m
title. In reply tei all tho questions on m
this lino Admiral Walker said ho had iH
been satlslled In a general way that fm
tho new Panama Canal company would iggggl
bo capable of passing tho property to 'A
tho United States vvllh acceptable title, ggfl
but that ho was not a lawyer und that 'ggfl
ho felt KalUflcd, In cnio tho rccom- lM
mcndatlon of tho cennmlsslon to adopt , m
tho I'anama roulo should bo favorably , fB
nctexl upon by Congress, tho President WB
would bo assured by competent legal ,m
ndvlco of the gcnulneiiess of tho tltlo iggB
before nccoptlng the transfer. CgH
"Wo only recommend the Panama ggga
roulo ns practicable nnd feasible," ho M
said, "by vhlch wo mean that vvc con- .igga
Hldered the cnglneerlmf proposition as fgH
practlciihlei and tho diplomatic ncgo- H
tlitlon ns fesulblo." -.H
Ha said ha hid had no negotiations M
with M. Larpc, ccietary-gencral of M
the new Panama compaiiy, beyond re- iM
celvlng the proposition for tho salo of M
that rompiny to him, us had been pub- B
llshed. Ho had, hovvovcr, made In- )
eiulrles nt M. Uirpo concerning his
company's title, ns he had been assured
by that gentleman that It was good.
In reply to a question from Senator H
Morgan as to ivhellier tho Government gH
nf tho United Slates had Instituted H
any negotiations with tho Government H
nt Colombia iclatlng to the transfer H
nt tho propertj-, Admiral Wnllier said H
that ho would havo to refer tho Sena- 'M
tor to tho Stale depirtmcnt, that It ,H
h" hud such Information ho would not M
bo ut liberty to dlviilgo It. Ho ex- H
preseil the opinion, however, that tho H
Colombian Government would bo H
bound hy any obligation assumed by H
tho Pnnimn company, because tha iH
Government Is 11 stockholder In thi "gH
Panama compan j'. ,M
The Admiral was questioned concern- ,H
Ing tho French lottery for the promo. M

that next week ho would bo roady to .H
