Reyes was asked.
"Feeling Is runnig high, and there

"That treaty has not been ratified.
The Colombian government does not

mus. All we ask is to be allowed to
conduct our own affairs free from out

without violating a letter of the treaty
of 1846. I refer to the treaty that we
always have respected and adhered to,
and not to the treaty as interpreted in
these later days. If the United States
maintains a neutral position, the revo

German Emperor Decide* to Postpone
Tran.s-Atlnr.tlc Ynclit Race
Becnuae of Ill-llealtfi«
Berlin, Nov. 30.—Emperor William
has withdrawn his offer of a cup for
a trans-Atlantic yacht race in 1904, on
account of his health, and has sub
stltuted for it the offer of a cup to be
raced for in 1905.
The emperor, through his repre
sentatives, cabled his decision to the
American yachtsmen Saturday, with
his reasons for postponing. These are
that the prolonged period of the em
peror's recovery and the consequent
accumulation of all business has pre
vented him from receiving his yacht
ing advisers to arrange the details for
a trans-Atlantic race until it was too
late for the designers and builders to
have new yachts ready for a contest
in the spring of 1904.
Sir Thomas Lipton Saturday re
ceived a telegram from Lord Lionsdale
notifying him that as illness had pre
vented Emperor William from meet
ing his yachting representatives, it
would now be too late to build boats
in Europe and make the suggested
1904 race a success, so the emperor de
cided to postpone offering his cup for
a trans-Atlantic race until 1905. Lord
Lonsdale added that the emperor,
therefore, would not take advantage of
Sir Thomas Lipton's withdrawal. Sir
Thomas replied, agreeing with lord
Lonsdale that it was now too late to
make the proposed race a success, and
pointing out that, therefore, it was
quite useless for him to renew his of
fer, the withdrawal of which had al
ready been accepted.
Sir Thomas Lipton hopes to enter a
boat in the race for the emperor's cup
