Colombian Government Passes It Up— Nothing Doing at Night. Washington, Sept. 23.—When the state department closed at 4 o'clock Tuesday It was agreed that the Pana ma canal treaty was dead, although eight hours yet remained during which the Colombian government might have taken affirmative action on it. Nothing was received concerning the canal treaty from Minister Beaupre at Bo gota, nor by Mr. Herran, the Colom bian charge d'affaires, a report is cur rent here that the Colombian congress in secret session has clothed Presi dent Marroquin with full power to ne gotiate a treaty. If this report should turn out to be true, President Mar roquin, who is counted a friend of the treaty, could proceed untrammeled by tne fear of future reckoning with his congress. In any event President Roosevelt must now take the next step. He can elect to proceed under the bpooner act and take up the Nlcaraguan route or he can allow the matter to drift for the present in the hope that a way may yet be found to straighten out the present diffculty in the path of the Panama route. ; Contrary to his custom during the summer, the acting secretary of state remained in the city today in order to be on hand to act promptly on any in formation which mignt come from Mr. j Beaupre regarding canal matters at Bogota. Up to 9:30 o'clock, however, nothing had been received. Dr. Her ran, the Colombian charge, also waited anxiously for news from his govern ment, but was disappointed. Colom bia, it is known, is anxious to keep alive the negotiations. One interesting feature with the leg islative situation in Colombia is the fact that the terms of one third of the members in the senate, numbering nine, will expire on the 20th of next July, when the life of the pres ent congress will end. These nine senators, it is said, are aerse to the canal treaty. The hope of the advo cates of the treaty will be to elect senators in their places who are favor able to the convention.
