SENATE ON CANAL BILL
Demands Further Investigation. Panama

Waidinotok, Jan 14 Reporters have
polled the Senate with a view to ascer
taining the sentiment oa the pending of
fer of the Panama Canal Company to
sell to this Government for $10,000,000.
It to made because the attltnde of the
Senate Is supreme news at this time,
neither the friends of Nlcarauga nor of
Panama having even a slight Idea of how
the offer of the Panama Company bad
affected the Senators.
The poll showed these figures,
For the Nlcaraugan Canal bill 81.
For giving consideration to the Pana
ma offer 40.
Opposed to any lnteroceanlc canal

The result of this poll reveals several
things very clearly.-. . ,
First, That there is an overwhelming
sentiment In the Senate In favor of the
passage at this session of an act author
izing the construction of an Isthmian
Second. That while a very large ma
jority ofj theJ.Senators were in favor of
the Nicaragua canal prior .to the making
of the offer by the French company, a
clear majority have since then turned In
favor of giving the Panama offer full
consideration before (decisive faction Is
Third. That any effort on the part of
the friends of the ..Nicaragua canal to
force a bill through before the whole
matter, Panama offer and all, has been
considered by the committee would meet
with failure. Seventy-two of the 88
Senators were asked their views. Sena

absent, but tbey are known to be in
favor of a careful consideration of the
Panama offer before Senate acts. They
are therefore counted with the majority.
