"It I my plan and hope that Col.

will be a fitting climax to bla career.

SECRETARY SAYS HE IS RE
SPONSIBLE FOR DELAY.
"Tbe delay In completing plans for
tho future of the Canal Zone le per
haps. In a measure, aacribabla to me,"
said Secretary Oarriaon. "L have
been for a long time engaged tn draw
ing up the scheme of government for
the Canal, and tha complexity of the
work has been ao great, Involving ao
many detalle of organisation, gov
ernment and operation, tbat It la only
recently that 1 have completed It.
The eubject la now awaiting the
Prealdent' approval. He has been
ao engrossed In other more pressing
matters that we have not been able
as yet to go over the plan In all Its
dealla, ao that he may express opinion
upon It. The Adamson Aot, under
which we operate, provides that the
Preeldent shall prepare a plan for tbe
government and operation of the
canal and appoint a Governor and
uch other official as he deems neces
sary. The details, with ths excep
tion that there must be a Governor,
are left to executive discretion.
"I cannot speak for tba Prealdent,
but I am frank to say tbat it has
horn my Intention in preparing the
plsn of government tbat Col.
Qoethala should be numed as Gov
ernor of tbe Canal Zone, with power
not only to operate tbe canal, but to
govern tbe territory. It la tbe reward

will be offered to him and accepted.

GOETHALS WANTS TO
BE HEAD OF POLICE.
The report tbat Prealdent Wilson
had announced definitely hie purpose
to make Col. Qoethule Governor of the
Canal Zone under the "one man form"
of administration waa something of a
shock to George W. Perkins.
"There Is nothing for me to aay,"
declared Mr. Perklne, disturbed but
not convinced, apparently, tbat tha
opportunity to secure Qoethala for the
city's aervlce had disappeared a 1 moat
aa quickly as It showed Itself. "Mr.
Mltchel asked me to sec Col. Goethale
and urge him to come ta New York.
I went at once to Panama, apent about
t .o days with Col. Goebtals, and, as a
result, brought back the letter to
Mayor Mltchel published to-day. The
letter speaks for Itself. Col. Goethale
wante to come and will coins If cor
ta'.n conditions can bo met. It la for
us now to meet thoae conditions.
BELIEVES THE CHARTER AND
LAWS CAN BE CHANGED.
"Do you think," Mr. Perkins waa
saked, "that laws of the Btuto and
the city charter can be amended to
meet Col. Qoethala' view?"
"Who 1 to prevent It?" retorted Mr.
Perkins. "let us find out."
Tbe police and all the ramifying In
. fluenr.es of the police would work
agslnst It, was auggeated.
".lust think what It mean to New
I York City to nay uch a thing aa
I that," replied Mr. Perkina. "Are we
to admit that New York City la ruled
by tbe police force? have tha high
eat reaped for the police a individ
ual and aa a body, but I am aot ready
to admit that aay body of city em
ployees oaa dictate wbat her tha lawa
af tbiaattp a
be changed. If tbat be true, the
quicker we flnd It out the betier."
The paragraph In Col. Ooethal let
ter to Mayor Mltchel In whUb the en
gineer said that be would remain at
Panama until the work wa com
pleted. If be were allowed to do ao,
waa pointed out to Mr. Perkina. Mr.
Perkina aald he did not think It meant
that the appointment of Col. Ooethals,
If made at all, aaust be postponed for
at leaet a year.
Mr. Perklne denied that Theodore
Roosevelt or any member of tbe
Rooeeveit family had anything to do
with the negotiation with Col. Goe-
thai. He also called abaurd and

public spirited cltlsena had agreed to

It fully with Mr. Perkina. I can
only reiterate what 1 stated to
you tbat tba position strongly

tain condition which prevent me

There are, therefore, ooly two
course for me to pursue to enable
me to accept your offer; one la to
resign from tbe eervlce and tba
other la to be placed on the retired

bava been looking forward to se

Assuming that I will be allowed

I will be placed on tba retired list,
attractive as your offer la, I would
be obliged to decline It ao long aa
tbe preeent law remains In force
by which removals from tbe police

In public work of aay kind ef
