De sire to Get News OOHOHA EEOEIVES A STATE PAPEE Which He Holds Back Owing to Our Proceedings on the Isthmus Washington Oct status of the Colombian canal negotiations is that both sides here are awaiting a decision of the Colombian government as to whether Minister Concha shall proceed under his original instruc tions to present to the state depart ment the Colombian response to the departments proposal for a treaty When the response arrived in Wash MIN1STER CONCHA ington two days ago the minister promptly notified the state department of Ibe fact but be added to his notice the statement that in view of recent developments meaningevents that had happened on the isthmus since the note started from Bogota Sept 10 be had regarded it as his duty to withhold it until he heard further from bis gov ernment Goes Over Conchas Head As the state department had in some way come to know that the Colom bian response would if submitted go sVugires of government in jtlii matter of ii treaty this delay was very annoying But as the minister had bis own no tion of duty in the matter it was de cided that an appeal should be taken over his head to the authorities at Bo gota Accordingly a cablegram was sent to United States Minister Hart at the Colombian capital notifying him of the action of the Colombian min ister here No specific complaint was made but it was desired to make sure that the Colombian government knew that the note had been held back What We Are Objecting To The matter of objection by our owl officials is the attempt to link the nego tiations for a canal treaty with tlij discussion of the questions of the cor rectness of the attitude of our officers on the isthmus MAY HAVE TO PllOCEED Possibility That We Will Go to Work Be garillcss of Colombia It is expected that the delay will not be long for even if the Colombian an swer is not satisfactory the United States government will still be bound by the terms of the Spoouer act to pro ceed towards the construction of an isthmian canal and the onjy question to be decided is as to the method There are two ways open even in case of an adverse attitude on the part of Colombia namely either the United States government to proceed without delay to complete the treaties with Nicaragua and Costa Uica necessary for the construction of a canal in those countries this latter course would be adopted with govern ment might purchase outright the franchise of the French Panama Ca nal company and go on resolutely with the construction of the Panama canal taking the ground that it would have a right to
