Washington, July 3.—The cabinet
was engaged at the suggestion of Sec-
retary Ilay, in the preparation of meas-
ures to carry out the terms of the isth-
mian canal law. The government
must determine the sufficiency of the
title that can be conveyed to the Uni-
ted States by the Panama Canal com
pany; a treaty must be negotiated with
Columbia conferring the necessary
rights, and a technical commission
must be appointad to carry on the at-
tual work of construction.
It was decided to refer the matter of
title to the attorney general, it being
purely a legal question and recourse
may be had by the latter to the French
courts to secure from some high trib-
unal a satisfactory affirmation of the
sufficiency of title, as the interests in-
volved are too great to base the title
upon the mere opinion of an individual
lawyer, either French or American.
The attorney general may attempt,
however, to secure from the French
government, directly through the
chamber of deputies, in all probability,
some legislative declaration which
shall have the force of law and effectu-
ally affirm the legality of the acquisi-
tion of the canal property to the Uni-
ted States. It will be necessary for
the attorney general to send to I* ranee
some thoroughly competent person,
who can, if need be, retain local 1' rench
talent to aid in his work. The name
of Assistant Attorney Russell has been
suggested as well qualified for such a
post and some or all of the members of
the isthmian canal commission may go
to Paris. There is some reason to be-
lieve that, while no formal assurances
have been passed, the French govern-
ment has managed to let it be known
to the president that it is willing to do
everything that is necessary to quiet
this question of title.
