AGREE UPON TREATY
SECRETARY HAY AND MINISTER BUNAU-VAR1LLA IN ACCORD ON MAIN FEATURES. I0UGH DRAFT NOW IN PREPARATION CONVENTION PROVIDES FOR CON- STRUCTION OF CANAL BY THE PANAMA ROUTE. "Washington, Nov. 19.The main features of the Hay-Bun au-Varilla treaty providing for tb construction Df an isthmian canal by the Panama route have been agreed upon and the rough draft of the convention is in preparation. No date for the signing of the treaty has yet been fixed. The Panama minister and Secretary Hay will have another conference regard ing the treaty. It is thought that the members of the Panama commission, who arrived in New York Tuesday, will remain there for the present as it is said their presence is not needed here in con nection with the negotiations for the treaty. It is possible that when the treaty is signed the commission may receive cable instructions to ratify the convention and thus avoid the neces sity of sending it to Panama. Unless Dr. Herran, the Colombian charge, receives word from his gov ernment within a reasonable time he will close the Colombian legation here. COLOMBIA AGGRESSIVE. Assumes Threatening Attitude Toward the United States. Washington, Nov. 19.It is learned here that the situation at Bogota has assumed a critical phase as far as re lations between the United States and Colombia are concerned. Minister Beaupre, on the 16th inst., was pressed strongly by the Colombian government to know whether the United States in tended to recognize the new republic of Panama.

Mr. Beaupre was instructed by this government again to inform the Co lombian government that such recog nition had been extended to the new republic of Panama by the United States simply in the interest of human ity and civilization and in the execu tion of solemn treaty obligations bind ing upon the United States. He was Instructed to tender to the Colombian government the good offices of the United States to effect a settlement of the difficulties between Colombia and Panama. The issue is awaited With some anxiety here. As an earnest desire of the state department to continue on friendly terms with the Colombian government it is pointed out that without bring ing direct pressure to bear the de partment is disposed to do everything In its power to save any equities Co lombia may have in the isthmus. Thus' it is recognized as entirely proper that some part of the $10,000,000 which the Unitea States government is to pay over to Panama upon the ratifica- I tion of the treaty should be allotted to Colombia in payment, of Panama's I share of the Colombian national debt.

Chicago City Railway Company Oper ates Another Line. Chicago. Nov. 19.While negotia tions for peace between the Chicago City Railway company and its strik i ing employes were pending in the city hall through the overtures of Mayor Harrison and the aldermanic arbitra tion committee a third line of the company's strike bound cars was put in operation under police protection. Five cars on the Indiana Avenue elec tric line were started under guard of patrolmen, drawn from the Wentworth and Cottage Grove lines, where tum ble had apparently subsided almost to the point of disappearance. The In diana line connects with the Wabash Avenue cable line at Eighteenth street and extends southward to Fifty-first street, midway between the other two main lines which have been put in operation. Owing to the withdrawal of police and men to operate other lines only, fifteen cars were operated on Wentw\th avenue. Except for a few stones on the tracks there was no attempt to delay the Indiana Avenue cars on their way down town. Neither strikers nor their sympathizers wore present in any great numbers, due in a measure, perhaps, to the cold, and the street presented almost its usual appearance, drivers being little inclined to inter fere. to follow the same course ana, in tact, several of them already have opened tnsiness relations with the govern ment of Panama.
