The treaty between the United
States and Colombia for thn con
struction of the Panama Canal by
the United States was signed to
day iji this city. No details of the
signature of the treaty were obtain-
It had been intended not to make
the signatures of the canal treaty
public until tomonow but the
news apparently was too good for
some of tho friends of thc-xanal to
kecsp after the long delay and sus-
pense and it transpired at tlie Pres-
ident's official reception. Fears

willing to accede to the wishes of

finally agreed on. Sometime ago
there was a hitch over the question
of the extent to which control "by
the United States over this strip of

over part of her territory but this

strip to the United States for canal
purposes and incidental police con-

Tho canal treaty was signed at
Secretary Hay's house this after-
noon Mr. Hay acting for the Unit
