Now that everything seems ripe for
legislation providing for the Nicaragua
canal, tha Impotiance of the Hay-Paunee
fote treaty looms up. That treaty I*
pending in the Senate, and the fnendt of
the Banal are doing their utmost to have
It ratified. There la a great deal of ot :*>-
•Itloci to It, however, chiefly on the ground
that t* ratify It would seem to bs ad
mitting that we are yielding lo some tort
of demand from England.
But It seenia that the treaty, or a treaty
very much like It, la neceaaary before It
will be advlt.it>.* to enact the Hepburn
car.al bid—the renal L.II which haa t it
approval of a great majority of the mem
bers of th* house. The Olayton-Bu.wrr
treaty Is In force. There le nodobut about
that R contains a provision that the
Fnlled Btalea shall not ut.dtrtuka the
construction and control of an lethmian
car.al The Hepburn bill provides that
the Fnlled Slues the!! construct, and
own ard absolutely control ibi prop -!
Nicaraguan canal. The Hay-Paunrefote
treaty abrogates that portion of the Ciay
ton-Bulwer treaty which Interferes with
our bulkllng and controlling Hie canal,
and -ontains some other provisions re
specting the canal In time of war.
Suppose the Senate should refuse lo
ratify this treaty, and should pass the
Hepburn - anal bill, what would be the
result? Would not the President be com
pelled to veto the bill’ II la difficult to
see how h* could w- ll avoid doing to. It
Is true that Great Britain might consent
to the setting aside of the Clayqon-Bul
wer treaty alter the passage of the Hep
burn canal bill, but the chances ate that
•he would do nothing of the kind. She
would feel that she bad been slapped in
the face, and therefore would not be <ll*-
post.l to help us over the difficulty.
But would Great Britain <<unsider th
violation of tha Clayton-Butwer treaty a
cause for war? She might not. but then
what Is the uo of risking war when the
entlra matter can be Milled without dis
turbing our friendly relatione with her?
It may be that the lit) -Pauncefote
treaty la not Just what this country would
like to have It, but If a modification of it
cannot be had It would be better to ac
cept tt than to take me chance* of hav
ing the canal bill defeated. If the Presi

If tt could be pasted over his veto. The

THE BOOZ HAZING CASE.
Representative Drlggs of New Vork ha*
introduced Into the House a resolution
calling for a congressional Investigation
inio the alleged hazing of Cadet Oscar L
Boo* at the West Point Military Academy
In I*9B. from the effects of which. R is
claimed, the young man died recently. It
appears that young Book entered the
academy in June of the year mentioned
tia phy*tc*Uy perfect condition, un-i left It
in September of the same year a physical
wreck, as a consequence of ilia hazing he
received at the hit r* Is of the upper clasa
men. Boot wa* n> w-r well after ho left
Weot Point, and died at bis home In
Pennsylvania some days ago of consump
tion of the throat.
The allegation# of the father and
friends of young Boo* b> that the basing
administered to him was exlremcly severe 1
and brutal; that he was compelled to en
gage In a light with .1 man much Ilia mi- 1
perlor In strength, weight and skill, a* a
result of which h< was badly beaten, sue- 1
taliklng Injuries lo certain vital organs.
In addition to tikis he was forced to swal
low tabasco Kkuov, which burned anti de
stroyed the lining of his throat and In
jured Ms stomach. His family physician,
who attended him upon his return from
Meet Point, says that he Is satisfied that,
the mixture Koox was forced lo drink was
the exciting cause of his last Illness; that
It left Ma throat ulcerated and inflamed,
which resulted In Ihe tuberculous condi
tion that ended In death.
The superintendent of the academy. Col.
Mllls.denles that Boos was severely hazed,
but says that the young man resigned
from the school assigning trouble with his
eyes as Ihe cause. If is not denied that
basing Is practiced at the academy, but It
Is claimed tlkal the harmful nilacka have
been eliminated and Iha l only harmless
practical Jokes ara now played by Ihe
older students upon the newcomers. It la
known that Col. Mills has made strong
effort to protect Ihe under-class men from
brutality. Should a congressional. Investi
gation bo orcHvd In the Boos case tt
would doubtless show whether or not he
Hazing Is a reprehensible practice, but
It seems that the upper-class men of about
all of the Inatiluttona of higher learning
are addicted to It. They apparently think
It rre-erwiry to lest the courage and
“manhood” of the new ujrtvai. If he
stands his punishment well, he becomes
known as a good fellow,” and n bond of
sympathy la created between him and his
comrades And usually the febow who
gets Ihe toughest hazing Is one of the flist
lo enter Into the hazing of new arrivals
when he has become an upper-class man.
Senator Clay drew from Senator Frye,
In th* course ef the dvute on the ship
subsidy bill on Monday, one admission
which the supporter* nf Ihe bill would
doubtless have been glad to keep In the
background. Senator Clay asked If II
were not true lhs a twenty-on# knot ehtp
would draw undrr the bill 1904.000 a year.
Senator Frye admitted that It was true,
and that that amount would be about U” •

handling. In other words, tha govern
ment would pay a bonus amounting 10 the
lo'.al -.bat of operating the ship, and
besides, to go Into the pockets of Ihe
owners. Under such an arrangement the
earnings of the ship would be practically
all clear profit

THE MOKNTNG NEWS: FRIDAY. DECEMBER 7, 1000.
DANIEL'S PR.tYf HItB PLAN.
Senator Daniel of Virginia and several
other Democrat! have obtained from th*
president assurance* that there is no In
tention on the part of the Republican
party to attempt to cut down the repre
<en*at!on of the South In Congress on ac
count of the steps which tome of the
Southern states have taken to deprive
llilterate negroes of the ballot. The Sen
ator was particularly anxtoua lo gel su h
an assurance because he has a scheme for
getting rtd of Igncrant negro voters tn
hi* slate. He does not moan to advise
th# adoption of what Is known a* the
"grar.dfaiher clause," because he ha*
some doubt about It* constitutionality
The Inference from whal-ke says Is. that
that clause, which now has a place in
the constitution* of Louisiana and North
Carolina, will tie found to be unronotltu- 1
tiona! if It la -wr brought before the
Fnlte-I State* Supreme Court
Ills plan is to base the right to vote
upon art cJuoutkmal riualiflcatlon. and to
g.ve to the descendant* of oil
who look part In any of the wars of the
United State* the right to vote whether
they can pus# the educational lent or not.
A roriMllutlonai amendment of that kind
relative to ihe franchise would not die
cr.nt.naae against the blacks, because
there are a good many negroes In the
state who took part, one way or another,
in the Civil War. *nd the descendants of
such negroes, together with those o!
negroes who took part in other wars, are
Senator Daniel's scheme Is a rather
novel one, and It would not be surprising
if it should meet with favor In hi* state,
it Is likely that It would not be s<Hourly
objected to by the leaders of the Repub
lican party, and would stand a good
eho nee of being approved by the Sjpreme
Court, tf the question of Its constitution
silly should ever reach that tribunal. At
th e.ime time. It would rid the state of
s very large vote that la extremely ob
jectionable for several reason*. No
doubt the scheme w 11 receive a good deal
of attention In all parts of the country
There Is a growing belief that the grewt
majority of th* Republican leaders would
not object to any plan of getting rid of
the negro In politic* that Is not con
trary to the constitution. They are be
ginning to see that there Is no chance for
* Republican party tn the South as long
a# the negro has the ballot, mid many
of them are beginning to think that with
the negro out of the. way there would be
a strong Republican party In every one
of the Southern s ate*
THE RIVER 11)114".I. I’HOJEtT.
We have excellent authority for saying
that the capitalists who are Interested
in the Seaboard Air Line Railroad are
taking great Interest In she proposition
to construct -a bridge across the rlyer to
connect th* terminal of that road with
the business part of the city. It Is not
too much to say that there Is an excellent
prospect that the project will lake shape
In the very near future. It is considered
wMhln the probabilities, by those who
are In a position to speak authoritatively,
that the building of a bridge will be be
gun within a year; indeed. It would not
he at all surprising If the bridge should
be completed within that time.
It Is unnecessary to give ttie- reasons
why the proposed bridge should be built.
Everybody that know* anything about
the matter understands ahe necessity for
It. in fart, the necessity becomes more
apparent every dny. There Is no doubt
that It would add greatly to the value
of the Hutchinson Island terminal prop
erty. Nobody understands that better
than those who have invested money In
the Improvements which have been made
on Hutchinson Island. Besides, the bridge
Is really neceseary for th# purpose of
developing the full value of those Im
provements, which have added so much
to the appearance of the hurhor nmi
promise so much for the commerce of the
No douhe sites for Industries of one
kind and another will he sought on the
Island. The establishing of such Indus
tries there will make the necessity of a
bridge more urgent. If Ihe bridge were
already built the Inducements for locat
ing Industrial plains on the island would
be even greater than It Is.
Of course just as soon as a bridge was
constructed there would lie a demand foe
a bridge across Back river, and a very
large section of productive country would
thus be opened up lo Savannah.
For the building of the bridge no moikcy
Is asked of thivannoh people. All that is
desired of them is their good will. If
they will offer a Utile encouragement It
will be fully as much appreciated In this
case as an offer of financial assistance.
Let the popular demand for It become a
little more pronounced and the ebances
ore that It w-dl lx* constructed without
very much delay.
The artistic spirit of Atlanta Is re be
demonstrated In a monument to be raised
to the memory of the late lamented
