This report was brought from San Oeronlmo by Thomas Ilollanil, ex-ranaer of the Arizona forco and now foreman of the mines. He la known throughout the Southwest and his report Is considered entirely re liable. It was further confirmed by Gen. Hmlllo Kosterlltzky. who Is hern to-day on his way to Mexico city. Gen.

I'pon his arrival In Douglas Holland rrportc 1 to American Consul Dye of Agua Prleta nnd he at once communi cated the threat to Washington. This Is believed to be the reason for the message to Gen.

Special Cable DemateK to Thk Si.n Londov. Aug. 2S. M. Hunan-Vat ill.) . ohlef engineer of tho old French canal, writing to the Shipping World In regard to the Panama Canal law seeks to dhow where tho fallaoy lies in the contention that tho exemption of American coast wise, vessels from dues cannot be a griev ance of other users of the canal because foreigners are debarred from American coastwise trade and therefore are not discriminated against. M. Ilunau-Vnrilla fixes on the phrase "llle charge shall be just pjii iSn ar,'f- I" of the. Hay treaty and says u public cm he charger shall be just wid equitable" Panncefotc entitr like tho United States cannot operato a public universal service in a commercial spirit, that is to say, with a view to profits. Tho stipulation therefore means, in M. 13unau- arilla a opinion, that tho charges shall be such as to cover the excuses of operation and interest on and reimburse ment of the capital invested. There cannot, he saya, Ixt any other conception of the terms "just nnd equitable." It follows that if a large part of the trade i allowed to pass through the canal free tho total tolls collected will le largely diminished and universal trade will be unduly taxed, owing to the suppression of part of the canal's earning power. 1 his clearly shows in the opinion of M, nunati-nril!a that if the spirit of the treaties te not violated bv the now law of discrimination, both the spirit and letter of these documents are manifestly violated on the other equally important question of justice and equity. "lhe United States," says M. Bunau Varllla, "is tho trustee of humanity in this great work. Tho law just promulgated puts her in the unenviable position of a trustee who uses part of the proceeds of his trusteeship in favor of his family." M. Huiiau-Varilla points out that the only way under the Hay-Pauncefotn treaty to secure redress from the intolerable attitude which has now been taken by the United States Is arbitration. If this is refused under the treaty and an appeal to the United States Supreme Court is ruled out on the ground that a political treaty is regarded as abrogated when a subsequent law violates It. then tlm Hay-Runau-Varilltt treaty could bo iiiMiked to enable the case to !o brought before the Supremo Court, because the latter is not a political treaty as the Hay-Pauncefotn consention is. It isthotitle of tho prop erty id the cunal and th Supreme Court must cither break the law or break the title to the property if it rules that a sub sequent law violate a formal condition of title to property. COMMENT OF BRITISH TRESS. Ttntk nf Opinion I 1'ltpl Trent? Ha flren 'lttlntrd. fpeanl Cable Detpafli to Tnr. Sc.v. T.oniio.n, Aug. "S.- Great I'.ritnln's note of protest against the Panama Canal law furnishes thn occasion for renewed comment by the newspapers. Then are all moderately worded. The Standard pleads for moderation on this ride of tho water, saying the Itiltlsli case will not suffer hy argu ing It calmly. It adds that "excess of Indignation over a difference of opinion with a friendly Power would be en tirely out of place." It in pointed out with satisfaction that "nowhere Is President Tart's essay on hair splitting more vehemently denounced than by some of his own countrymen." Tho bulk of opinion of the news papers la that the exemption of coast wise vessels from cannl tolls Is a breach of the Hny-Paunrefoto treaty, but thn Doflv A'rto mirf Leader admits that, the contrary opinion ran be argued and the argument will not lock force It the term "coastwise trade" Is not given an ex travagantly extended meaning. The AViu.t further disagrees with M. Hunau Varllla'a arguments. It says that If America may grant exemption to her coastwise ships the consequence that other vesels must pay heavier tolls can not affect her right. The publication of the canal law here calls attention for the first time to the provision for o toll of $1.25 per regis tered ton. This Is held by tho Daily AVtrA nnd Chronielr to be more dis criminative than the coastwise exemp tion. There Is a consensus of opinion which Is variously expressed that the question ought to be sent to the Hague tribunal, but the belief Is not unanimous that the United States will consent to such reference. The Handard suspects that there Is an "uneasy conviction In the United Sttrtca that that country Is being let Into an extremely Inconvenient dispute, In which all tho strong cards nre hold by America's opponent. Thin feeling 1b likely enough to prompt extreme re luctance to arbitrate." The Bail; Mail says President Taft must recognlio that he has acted In de fiance of public opinion In the United States. The question, the paper Insists, must be referred to Tho Hague. Tho CftrotilcJe, while greatly regret ting that this difficulty has arisen so neur the celebration of a century of peace between the two countries, expresses the hope that nothing will mar It. . The wholo cusc. It eays, must certainly be sent to Tho Hague If faith In agree ments and treaties Is to be retained. "We are sure." says the Chronicle, "that America will not fall to set an example at a time when It would be of great moral value.." The Dally Xews and Leader com pletely refuses to believe that tho United States will not accept arbitration. It suys: "It Is no reflection on nny State that It should take a particular view of the meaning of a treaty, but a State which refused to submit Its view to nn Impartial tribunal would be doing much to destroy faith In treaties." The Times says: "Tho Government's nolo asking that the Panama conten tion bo referred to The Hague tribunal will meet with the unanimous approba tion of Urltlsh opinion and, we are glad to think, with the equally strong ap proval of a largo nnd Influential Ameri can opinion." Tho Times again declines to contem plate tho contingency of any Americas Government refusing to arbitrate the question nnd regal ds It as almost In conceivable that President Taft should not welcome It eagerly. The Times thinks, however, that American lawyers of position and re pute would not greatly care to nrivance before tin International trlbunul the ar guments on which President Taft relics, anil points out passages In the Presl- i dent's mmsflRes from which It deduces ' that Mr. Taft does not seem to feel much condeuco In his iron case. In regard to an nppiil to the Su premo Court, tin- Time enyss "Presl- . limit Tnft mn1fei till. ,.vtrnn..llorv con-. gestlon that foreigners who uro ag- grieved by the violation of a treaty should be entitled to redress In Ameri can court. This suggestion Is wholly Inadmissible on evcty view of national and International right." "AVIATION IN U. S. STAGNANT." l.lriiii (nrtlns In i:irnir In Close llritronernplnnr L'nnlrncts.
