The Minister in Ecuador ( Hartman ) to the Secretary of State

28. Department’s 11, September 21st, 5 p.m.,25 and 12, September 22, 6 p.m. After interviews with President and railway management here I learned that neither party desires arbitration at present because of the belief that present negotiations will be successful. President said that he will so advise Ecuadorean Minister at Washington.

President expects to replace money withdrawn after Congress adjourns. I am keeping informed of progress and will keep the Department advised.
