VOLCANOES TALK FOR CANAL Juaserand ayt They Bpeak in Tone of Thunder for Panama. NEW FRENCH MINISTER LOVES AMERICA Kinds Danish Princess Reading; Pres ident Hoosevelt's Books, Which He Afterwards Perased With Deep and Abiding; Interest. PARIS, Nov. 20. M. Jusserand arrived here yesterday from Copenhagen on his first visit to Pari since bis appointment to Washington. He cornea now lo receive Instructions and arrange for hla departure for Washington, where he expects to ar rive early In the new year. Speaking to a reporter tonight he said: Although I have never lived In the United States I feel fairly well acquainted with that country, as my diploiriHtlc life has brought me Into contact with many Amerlrans and I" have formed many last ing Ajnerlcnn friendships. M. 'Jusserand said he had kept np hi Interest In American affairs more recently by reading American books, studying 'the American system, and by a constant cor respondence with a number of well known Americans, two of whom belong to the faculty of Columbia university. Recognise America's Position. He referred to the growing Importance of America In the world's affaire and said that throughout Europe the position of the United Statea aa a new world power waa everywhere recognized. He thought this Imposed serious trials and responsi bility on the country and pointed out that, while the commercial development of the Vnlted Statea waa marvelous, yet Its Intellectual progress was keeping pace with Its material progress. In this con nection he cited the new universities and a personal incident. He had received, he. aald, from a comparatively obscure col lege In the Interior of the United Statea a most scholarly criticism on hla theory re garding the origin of the manuscript of "Vision of Piers Plowman." M. Jusserand, when asked why Denmark refused to sell the West Indies, said the sentiment against , any further reduction of the Danish dominion operated strongly agalnBt the project, although It was at first aupposed that a universal desire for the sale existed.- The failure brought Its compensations as the discussion disclosed clearly that the Danish West Indies would not go to any other power than the United States. The failure was also to some extent an evidence of personal devotion to the king, who shared In the sentiment against part ing with the country' ancient possessions. Questioned regarding the pending Franco-American question, M. Jusserand said he intended to devote his careful at tention to the reciprocity treaty. which was still pending, and said he saw no reason why the two countries should not develop their mutual trade by a more liberal ex change of the products which each pro duced exclusively. He cited American ma chinery, raw cotton and - petroleum as articlea having no French competition which could form a basis of - exchange against those French articles which had no competition In the United State. Volcanoca Canal Talk.' Concerning -the Panama canal, - he aald the question had no official status, but he would continue the friendly efforts of M. Cambon on behalf of the company. He de clared : the moat . powerful . advocates, for the Panama route were the volcanoea of Guatemala, and Nicaragua, which kept' speaking in tone of thunder. ' ' " He related that on one occasion when dining with Bret Harte at the Rabalas club in London the American author ex pressed regret that he was unrecognized In France. M. Jusserand assured him that Frenchmen were familiar with the pe culiar cadence of western stories and proved it by reciting the closing line of "The Luck of Roaring Camp." Bret Harte repaid the compliment by saying that when he was a struggling clerk In California he was Impressed by the dramatic descriptive power of the elder Duma and thereafter modeled his style after that of the great French author. The ambassador spoke of the pleasure with which be had read President Roose velt's strenuous philosophy - and ranch tales. Those stories were first brought to hi attention during a sojourn at the royal palace near Copenhagen, - where Princeas Marie was found perusing - the Roosevelt books and declared them to be moat de lightful.

MAY GIVE UPPANAMA ROUTE Check In Canal Xegotlatlona filvrs Renewed Kncouremeit of Other Survey. WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. The check In the negotiations with Colombia relative to the Panama canal, haa given great en couragoment to the friends of th Nicara gua project and the first evidence of re newed activity on tbelr part wa the ap pearanca at the State department today of Benor Correa. Nlcaragusn minister to Washington. Secretary Hy haa several times called the attention of the Colombian government when the negotiation have lagged to the fact that under section four of the Spooner aot, If he I unable to obtain control of tho necessary territory in Colombia by treaty, then he I required to obtain tuch territory from Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It Is now aald to be probable that to emphasize hla repeated declarations that the action of congress In the passage of the Spooner amendment, did not finally commit the United -States to the accept ance of the Tanama route, Secretary Hay may proceed to draw up a treaty with Nicaragua and - Costa Rica and submit it to the senate alohg with such a treaty with Colombia aa be may be able to con clude. In .this way the senate Itself might de cide whether or not the Colombian-treaty Is satisfactory and If It should decide In the negative then It will have at hand the Nlcaraguan-Costa RICan treaties an that there will be no excuse for delay In the canal project. As for the Colombian negotiations, It can be stated that th United State ha now gone to the end of the concessions It Is willing to make. The Colombian min ister here has been notified of the decision reached and Is expected to make further reply either accepting or rejecting our last proposition. One of the objection lodged by ' Colombia 1 the difference over the tenure of the United State In the canal atrip. Prominent senators who have- been eon suited by the state department have In dicated their strong opposition to the ac ceptance of 100 years leaee with provision for renewal as sufficient to meet the pro visions of the Spooner act. Nothing less than "perpetual control" as set down In the act will aatlsfy them. The Colombians say that would be a vio lation of tholr constitution. But a careful reading of the Colombian constitution by the officials here doea not aatlsfy them that there Is any such prohibition against alienation of territory as la reported.
