FAYOMBLE TO UNITED STATES OLD TREATY IS DONE AWAY . . .O'J $ TV Uncle Sam Is Left Free to Fortify the Canal If He Should Ever Deem it Necessary to Do So To Be Exclusively American WASHINGTON. Nov, IS. The new canal treaty oetween the United States and Great Britain has been signed. At neon Secretary Hay and Lord Pauncefote. the British affixed their signatures to the elaboratelr engrossed document Notwithstanding the importance of the event, it was marked by severe simplicity. Lord Pauncefote, accompanied by the second Secretary of the British Embassy, Percy Wyndham, appeared at the State Department at midday. They were expected, and at once were shown into Secretary's Hay's office. Two parchment copies of the treaty were ready. The -signatures of the duly accredit-1 ed representatives of the two great power.4 were at once placed upon the scrolls. Secretary Hay signed first the copy which Is to go to London, and Embassador Pauncefo'te was the first to sign the copy which is to go into the archives of the State Department As soon as the signatures and 6eals had been affixed Secretary Hay and Lord Pauncefote shook hands' and exchanged congratulations., . Lord Pauncefote carefully placed his -copy of the precious document in a big envelope, and holding this in his hand took his carriage for the Embassy. The terms of the treaty will not be officially made public until sent to the Senate, but the yellow journal repre? sentatlves have failed ludicrously In guessing at them. -' - ,H the. concessions were Great Brltainr and they were made pilmarily because the English statesmen are ever willing to go as far as propriety will permit In winning the friendly regard of the people of the great Western Republic. This spirit was supported for the most part by the generous and broad-minded press in England, which, with a few exceptions, commended the new policy of their Government on the sensible ground that if the Americans were going to put their hundreds of millions into the isthmian canal it was for the Americans, and not anyone else to control It in peace or war, without subjection to reservations or ancient treaty rights of any outside parties. An authentic summary of the treaty's terms may be classified under six heads as follows: 1 It abrogates or supersedes the old Clayton-Bulwer treaty, and thus puts an" end to the copartnership between the United States and Great Britain in the proposed isthmian canal provided for by that instrument 2 Declares that the United States is free to proceed to the construction of such canal. 3 That this canal "is to be neutral in time of peace, open to the ships of all nations, and thatIts nmtrjility is guaranteed by the United States alone 4 That in time of war the United States may take such steps for the protection of the canal and its own interests as it may deem proper. 5 That the United States may make such rules and regulations concerning the use of the canal as it sees fit, save-that the United States agrees not to levy discriminative tolls upon the shipping of Great Britain. 6 In case of a change of In the isthmus the stipulation which the United States has entered Into as to the neutralization in time of peace and nondiscriminative tolls shall not be altered. In the first treaty the adherence of other maritime powers was to be invited. That has ben dropped from the new treaty. la the first treatv it was stipulated that the canal should not be fortified. That has hpon drenned from the new treatv. and consequently the United States is- free to do as it likes with trie canai to fortify it or to close it to Its ene. mies. In other words, the new treaty removes the old partnership or joint guarantee arrangement and stipulates for the United States freedom to no 3head with the construction of the canal, which shall he as fuHr under American control as If It were located upon the soil of the United States, with the single exception that the principle of n time of peace and placing the canal at in-service of the shipaof all astl ns that care to nse it an pex the tollsl exactly In accordance with, the American poller as la'd down bv the SJiato li response to public oolnloru The thnt thi United States ccu'd I not if it wished, fortify Its own cana' - - few ; mast permit the ships of its enemies to pass through the channel were features which the public andSenate objected to, and which have bee-omitted from the new treaty. Nothing more remains to be' done 33 far as this treaty is concerned before the Senate meets, or, the treaty shall have bce ratified, rejected or referred. If it shall be ratified the State Department will proceed immediately to negotiate the treaties with Costa Rica and for which it already as in protocols pending before the Senate, -which will permit tbecana! to be constructed and prescribe the terms upon which the consent of Nicaragua and Costa Rica Js'given. It was in anticipation of this "action it is presumed, that the Nicarasua" Government only recently denouncd the treaty of trade and commerce with the United States. This treaty contained sections conveying; rights ps to canal construction, which are to bs replaced by more modern provisions. BRITISH COMMENT OX THE HEW AGREEMENT LONDON. Nov. 19 Except as affording a chance for the" opposition journals to attack the -Government and the Foreign Secretary, Lord the signing of new isthmian canal convention does not excite strong interest in Great Britain. It is generally admitted that the British have nothing to gain br a retenr ticn of the Clayton-Bulwer treatv. while they haves much to gain by the construction of the canal. . The Morning Post congratulates both countries on the comDlPtion of the treatv. and savs it is .glad that the convention of 1900 has been revised in accordance with American wishes. The Dally Mall feais that the signing may not determine forever a troublesome dispute, and thinks Canada ought to receive some equivalent for the concessions which probably have been made. The Dally Chronicle savs: "Lord Lansdowne has surrendered without compensation. The Government has climbed down from the position it had deliberately chosen, and. although the disappearance cf the Clayton-Bulwer treaty will not cause much regret manv people wi'l sigh for the 'business cabinet' which Lord Roseberyrecently -suggested." In conclusion tlie"Dai' Chronicle characterizes the neWitreJtv as a byj Great Britain of th Monroe doctrine," and savs. "It wo'ild be strange indeed if the Senate should object to such a bargain." The Times says: "It nremiure to assume that all dlntcufties hve uQen overcome, 'and that the Snat bitKn!an:Lhn5 no reason to regard Uhj 'construction of the canal with alarm or suso'cion We hope the treaty will be dalt with by our American kinsmen in the same spirit of international good will with which it certainly will be received in London." IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE IN WIRELESS TELEGRAPH SYSTEM Great improvements are to be at once made in the wire- less telegraph system in these Islands. New and far better apparatus is to be installed at the different stations and the extension of the system to Kauai is in immediate prospect A more prompt and satisfactory service all over is promised. F. J. Cross, manager of the cempany, who returned from the East, spent several weeks In investicating the latest and best apparatus, with the result that he bel'eves he now has everything that cou"d be desired for the pef'ction rf the local system. He brought out the aew material with h'm "There will be a meeting of the stockholders in a.fw davs," said Mr- Cross, "at which the extension of the system to Kauai and numerous other matters w'll b? diseased.

The Commercial Pacific Cable Co.. recently L orcanized for the purpose of con structing and maintaining a cable across the Pacific Ocean, and of which John W. Mackay is president, today awarded the contract for the manufacture and laying of the first section of the great submarine strand to the Sllverton Cable Manufacturing Company, of Sllverton, near London. The cost of making and laying this section is estimated at about $3,000,000. The section will reach from San Francisco to some central point In the Ha waiian Islands, probably at Honolulu, and it is expected will be completed about the first of January. 1903. to The Silverton Company will commence the work of construction immediately and will have the work finished about the first of next July. The cable will then be loaded on board ship and it will be three months before it reaches San Francisco, the starting point of Its journey across the Pacific, The actual work of laying the cable will consume about seventeen days, and? with the'addTtional time for establishing the stations and allowing for possible. mishaps, itwill be ready for service in two"months after Its arrival here. George G. Ward, first vice president of the Commercial Cable Company, saidtpdav"m has assured us' they will complete the cable and have 't here inven months. Just as soon as thi3 section is complete and out of tho way we work on another section that will connect the Hawaiian Islands with the Philippines. Our station there will probably be on the island of Luzon, near Manila. Wc have not decided on that point yet, nor have we fixed our schedule of rates, but we shall reduce them to a reasonable figure. We expect to have the work completed in about two br three years. The estimated cost of the undertaking is about $15,000,000. but we have capitalized our company at only $3,000,000, because we prefer to increase our capitalization as we " proceed." - Ward said it was expected that tho new cable would allow the sion of messages in nearly four hours less time than required at the present Mackay in San Francisco. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20 Jobn W.
