The Senate went Into executive session
at 1I1J oclock yesterday afternoon for
the consideration of the compact between
the United States and Gnat Il ltn with
reference to the construction of the pro
posed Isthmian waterwa which has agi
tated the great Powers of the world for
the past rlecrtde
The titac for action on a rre Mem of
such magnitude was nusplclous all cir
cumstances tXerc favorabe England had
withdrawn opposition to fortification and
control of the canal by America the Gov
ernment of the United Slates was la
financial condition to commence the vast
undertaking nnd the majority of the peo
ple had been led to bclevc that the proj
ect was one that would protc of immense
talee to the nations commercial progress
In time of peace and of Incalculable ad
tantage to tho country In lime of war
So It was that the statesmen is charge
of the treaty had but to lay it before the
Senate permit it to undergo a few pre
HmnarJcs and then rclly their forces for
the Una act In the consummation of the
international transaction The compact
was adopted as it was prepared by Lord
Salisbury and signed by Secretary Hay
Not a word was changed Two amend
ments were oZcred at the last momnt
but these were signally defeated
Cnnnl nn Isatirnl Inct
The Nacaragua Canal Is cow an assured
fact and a bill for the construction of the
waterray will be rushed through without
delay
A sjrprlse was spruns after the debate
on the agreement when It was believed
that It would be permitted to go through
without any attempted amendment Act
ing under promises of assistance Sen
ators Bacon and Culberson submitted
amendments to tho treaty The promised
aid vanished and both proposed changes
were swept aside The Democrats then
gate up and the treaty was ratified by
an oterwhilmin vote
Jtnturc of the m mliiicnts
The Bacon amendment proposed that the
treaty be changed by the Insertion of a
few words so as to permit the United
States to blockade the canal In time of
war This was defeated by a tote of CO
to IS
The Culberson amendment was the old
Davis amendment giving the United
States the right to fortifj the canal and
to exclude any of the teasels of an enemy
In time of war This was defeated by a
vote of K to IS
The adoption of cither of the amend
ments would have killed the treaty and
would hate delayed action on the Nicara
gua Canal It was claimed for at least an
other year
Plnnl Voir n nrprlr
The tnal tote on the treaty came as a
surprise and the failure to secure prom
ised assistance on the amendments em
bittered the Democrats Senators Teller
and Tillman who bad openly announced
that they would not vote against the
treaty because they wanted to sec the
canal built nftcr seeing what had cocie
to pass voted against the treat without
qualifying statements
Ibrpr Hour of Ilcbntr
Nearly three hours of debate preceded
the ratification of the treat No new
points were brought out by cither side
and these who poke simply did so to
place themselves on record for and against
the proposition
Senator Tiller spike lor over an hour
against the treaty contending that the
United States should not go Into any
agreement with Crcat Britain Senator
Tones of Arkansas also spoke arainal the
treaty as did Senators Culberson and Ba
con Those who argued in fator of the
compact were Senators Lodge Spooner
1Ialt of Connecticut and Foroker
The Democrats bold that In time of war
the treaty can he disregarded and the
anal fortified and closed to the tectcli
of en enemy

The Dlifrtct Commissioner yesterday
passed upon several police cases that had
been sent to them by Major Sylvester In
c ich Instance Commissioner Ross who has
Immediate supervision over the police
force approved the recommendation bt
the Major and Superintendent and for
warded them to his associates for action
The cases considered were the accumu
lated work of the Trial Board for the past
three weeks
Private II A Quail wa3 charged by his
superior ofllcers with conduct unbecoming
a policeman in tint he went to a private
hous at the Instigation of an angry
nssa broke open the door and made an
arrest
Major SylveBtcr In passing upon the
matter recommended that the finding of
the Trial Board be approved as the ar
re was without warrant and in lil3
opinion the officer should bo warned to
e iti hotter judgment in similar mat
ters in the future The mitigating cir
cumstance according to Major Sylvester
was that the olQccr was under the Impres
sion that the lives of thosa Interested
were in peril
Slce I of
A flee of 20 to be paid In four equal
monthly installments Is the gist of Major
Sylvesters recommendation In the ease of
Private J M Wasson charged with neg
lect of duty The Superintendent adds
that tho officer should bo warned that a
repetition of such conduct would be visit
ed with dismissal from the force
According to the evidence before tho
Trial Board Wasson was in the habit of
entering n shed on his bit and there
resting from his labors On one occa
sion the rest continued for the period of
forty eight mini tes The finding of tho
board was guilty on three charges
Private T F was found guilty
nf a similar charge before the Trial
Board bis dereliction of duty lasting for
n period of rurty elght infinites Major
Syltestcr recommended that Sweeney be
lined 10 to be paid In two monthly in
stallments
Private J P Welsh pleaded guilty to
tho charge of neglect of duty In not re
porting from hla patrol box as required
by the regulations The excuse rendered
was that tho officer vas suffering from
temporary stupor caused he thought by
takinz a Iitko dose of quinine Major
Silvesters recommendation in his case
was a fine of J10 and greater care In
the future In obeying the regulations
Absence AWIhout Irntt
In tlcw of charges preferred against
Private W L Aud that officer tendered
his rcslgmtion as a mcniLcr of the police
force and Major Sylvester has recom
mended that it be accepted Policeman
Aud was cliarged with failing to report
for dut on two occasions and In falling
to glto good and batlsfactory retson
therefor
Additional Private F A Dyson was re
cently before tho Trial Board charged
with conduct unbecoming a policeman In
falling to kcop a specific promise made
to the Superintendent relative to the pay
ment of a debt Major Sylvester recom
mends that the officer bo required to dis
charge the obligation on or before the
fifth day of January 1902 and If ho
falls to comply within that time that he
be removed from tho service
The same officer was later before tho
Trial Board charged with neglect of duty
and Intoxication while on duty He was
found not guilty

ST JOHNS N F Dec 16 The Anglo
American Telegraph Comrany threatens
to seek an Injunction from tho Supreme
Cou t against SIgnor Marconi to prevent
Ms continuing his experiments In wireless
telegraphy and to compel him to remove
his apparatus rrom the colony without de
lay The Anglo American Company when
It laid Its first cable secured a monopoly
for fifty years This period expires in
April 1S0L
Co u lit Sccrie nn Injnnrtlon
Tho rimpanys threat may compel Mar
coni to caso operations here The caso
might be tested in the Supreme Court but
tho company would probably securo a
temporary Injunction which would re
strain him from continuing work for some
months Ho says ho cannot afford to
wait and If tho company persists In Its
threat he will havo to remote his appara
tus to Nova Scotia where no such regula
tions arc in force
Nova Scotia U 500 miles farther west
which dlstanco might make It Impossible
for Marconi to perfect his apparatus to
the advantage he could In Newfoundland
Great hopes were being entertained that
tho discovery couli be perfected In this
colony and there Is some Indignation ex
pressed here at tho action of the Anglo
American Company
I t is corsidcrcd n gratifying tribute to
the Importance whlchthc cable companies
attach to MarconTT venture that they at
tempt to crush It at this time
Marconi visited Capo Spear today seek
ing a site for a station He did not
make any tests as the weather was bad
It Is doubtful whether Marconi will bo
able to carry out the proposed exhibition
before the Gotcrncr Premier nnd other
officials tomorrow owing to the Anglo
Americans threat
Cnlileil Sperln Instructions
He cabled to his Cornwall station this
morning special instructions for tomor
rows tests hoping to bavo the signals
come audible enough to be heard by the
tUilors but now these may be held lae
Marconi says he cannot be crushed
Newfoundland is a small part rf the
earths surface and he can establish him
self off the extreme point of Labrador or
on the east coast of Nova Scotia cither
of which points would be alnost as ron
tenlcnt for him The loss he emphasizes
will be Newfoundlands not his He wa3
prepared to start nt once the building of
a J60C0O station to be succeeded In duo
course by a second
No Site Selected
He did not Anally decide on a Capo
Spear site today The fog prevented a
proper view of the country He rather
favors that place It being loner than Sig
nal Hill but the access to It Is difficult
and In view of the convenience which
the proximity of tho town afford3 for the
latter site It may eventually be chosen
Marconi says he would resume work
with his kite tomorrow but for the fat
of the cable companys artlon If an ar
rangement of that difficulty 13 made he
says he will stop here longer than this
week and make such experiments a3 will
satisfy the most skeptical He has for

Marconi 13 prepared to stake hU repu
tation on the truth of his announcement
If he had a pole 200 high It Is estimated
he could give ocular proof of It to etcry
body because he current would then
probably work tho recorder whereas now
he and his assistants receive the signals
by a telephone pole The test Is soon

ASSAILS MARCONIS CLAIMS
-iv Verl Inventnr Declares the
Kxiicrlmriit n Irnml
NEW YORK Dec 1G Lee DeForest
Til D one of the Inventors of the
system of wlrcles3 teleg
raphy has been deeply stirred by the re
ports of Marconis success In receiving
signals across the North Atlantic from
England In Mr DeForcsts remarks It
is etident that he is quite sure that while
somebodys system Is likely to accom
plish In time all that SIgnor Marconi
seems to have accomplished already there
Is no faith to be put in SIgnor Marconis
work
Dr DeForest Is so anxious to sate the
public from being oversangulne as to tho
talue of SIgnor Marconis achievements
that he visited a number of newspaper
offices today in the publics Interest Ho
even Intimates that Mr Tcsla with his
belief In Martian communication Is to be
put on tho same plane as that on which
he would put Marconi oad indeed all
others but the Inventors of tho DcForeat
Smltli sntem
Dr Drrorcst said that It was no wonder
that SIgnor Marconi got sparks from a
line 400 feet from the ground The won
der Is said Dr DeForest that sparks
were so weak for It Is no uncommon
thing to get sparks an Inch or more long
from an upright tvlrc thus disposed to
catch atmospheric electricity
Marconis coherer tars Dr DeForest Is
too delicate for practical telegraphy nnd
is given to the receiving of false and
misleading signals
Why asks Marconis rival was tho
prearranged signal merely the letter
3 three dots Why was it not a dot
and dash letter Ilka If It will be re
membered that Just about n year ngo an
other Investigator also announced tho re
ceipt of tho letter S- from a sonler so
ronioto as to make the Lizard seem in our
back yard
These dots also ect the world agog
but telegraphic communication with the
Martians at rates damaging to the cable
companies U jet In tho future At the
time of tho Queens funeral Marconis
company claimed to have sent n message
ISC mlle3 but tcsscls have goze on In
their humble way communicating at
tventy thirty or even sixty miles as
thougli tho 200 mile mark tva3 reserved
for great occasions

SEEK RE ENACTMENT
OF THE GEARY LAW
AN APPEAL BY CALIFORNIANS
Ililtvnnl J LIvernnsli AilTnnce
Gtlnnl of n Commission Snys
Coiisrcsa Will Also Itf Asked
to nxclmlc Japanese
Edward J LIvernash ot San Francisco
one of tho editors of the San Francisco
Examiner is here in advance of a com
mission from California which will advo
cate before Congress a renewal ot the
Geary exclusion act against the Chinese
In addition to Mr LIvernash the commis
sion Is composed cf the following gentle
men Ex Got James IL Budd Truxtun
Bcale ex Mmister to Persia James U
Phelan mayor of San Francl3co and
Andrew Turuscth a well known labor
leader on the Slope The commission will
arrive in Washington within a fortnight
and will Immediately commence Its
labors to protect the interests of the
working classes not only against the
Chinese but the Japanese 33 well
We will not contuse our eiort3 In
these matters said Mr Livernash last
night but we want to awaken the peo
ple to the danger that threatens from
Japanese immigration With the Japs It
will not be seclusion but restriction so
far as we can go without precipitating a
diplomatic embrogllo Indeed Japan
would rather keep all of her pcuplc In tho
East as subsidiary means to the great
policy she has outlined the policy of
turning Japanese Immigration on Asiatic
lines and colonizing the Orient notably
Formosa with her citizens until she has
become In the Eastern world what the
United States is In the Western
Low Class Comes Here
Mr Livernash said the Japanese com
ing to this country were ot the very low
est clasa mudsills as he characterized
them and he compared them most unfa
vorably with tho Chinese Immigrants
A Jap he said will work for much
lower wages than the Chinaman and does
not approach him in intelligence Because
Japan Is a most progressive country the
Idea 13 pretalent that she docs not pos
sess an unprogrcssive class tne uues
and a most objectionable class it Is both
at home and abroad The Japanese la
borer as we know him on the Pacific Slope
Is a mere beast ot burden to tho people
whose purposes he serves and we want
to keep him away from our shores
At nuts No In et
Regarding the Geary act Mr Hvcrna3h
said his commission wanted It renewed
without change in any of Its provisions
It has stood tho test for ten years
he remarked hard as the Six Companies
have tried to find some flaw in it and wo
do not want Congress to amend It for fear
In being too generous to us It might
jjave some loophole for litigation You
know the Chinaman Is the wiliest creature
that walks and we do not propose to af
ford him any opportunity to slip in
through some defective phraseology In tho
act De Qulncoy wrote about Chinese
trickcri When I gazed at the face ot a
Chinese baby I felt as If I were looking
