Panama, May -When it became known
here that the American Secretary of War would
visit Panama, it was generally presumed that
he would interpose the friendly services of the
United States to prevent disturbances at the
next Presidential elections. This matter was
fully discussed during Mr. Taffs stay here, and
for several days persistent reports have been in
circulation that the United States would take a
hand In these elections, which -will be held in
July. To-day the result of the conferences was

cially Informed the government of the United
States, through Joseph C. S. Blackburn, Gov
ernor of the Canal Zone, and Herbert G. Squiers.
the American Minister to Panama, that it bad
created a commission of electoral inquiry, which
was empowered and directed to hear and ex
amine all complaints, to examine all records end
proceedings, and, in short, to investigate all
details reJating to the coming elections.
In view of the largo interests in the United
States which would be affected in case Of dis
turbances. Panama cordially invited the United
States to Join it In such Inquiries and proceed
ings and to designate such persons as it might
desire to examine and cross-examine all wit
nesses, inspect and make copies of th* electoral
lists and to conduct its investigation in conjunc
tion v.ith Panama as to secure the best results.
Each commission, it was proposed, should make,
a report to its respective government.
Governor Blackburn, in reply to this official
notification, made the following statement to
the Panaman government:
In behalf of our government we express our
appreciation of the spirit of your suggestion,
and our acceptance and accord with the same.
We agree with you that not a day should be lost
in pursuing the. necessary inquiries and taking
appropriate action. We shall, in behalf of our
government, designate various parties to visit
the several province* immediately, and we pug

garding th© Investigation, to be held. Already
a committee composed of canal employes, who
have been here for a long period and are thor

organized for the purpose of making an Inspec
tion. The supporters of Sefior Obaldia, the for
mer Panaman Minister st Washington, now a
candidate for the- Presidency, hay» organized
committees for the same purpose.
It Is the general opinion here that the action
of the. United States in reaching forth a guiding
hand, which practically mean* a supervision of

beneficial results in Panama.

ASKS OSAMMODS VOTE
General Porter Wants Favorite Sons
to Give Waif to Taft.
General Horace Porter wants the states with fa
vorite sons to fall In line gracefully and make the
nomination of Secretary Taft unanimous on the
first ballot. General Porter assumes that, as Taft
has the votes, either pledged or bound by definite
understanding, to win, It it« only the part of wisdom
and good politics to present a solid and enthusiastic
front to the Democrats by making the Secretary's
nomination unanimous on the first rolleall.
General Porter's announcement, with the claim
made by Frank 11. Hitchcock, manager of the Taft
forces, that Taft has over ffsj votes, put every one.
In good humor yesterday at the headquarters of
the Taft organization. No. 170 Broadway.
So certain are the Taft men of the Secretary's
triumph at Chicago that tha preparation of a Taft
campaign book Is under way by the authorization
of the Secretary and his managers. Robert Lea
Dunn Is supervising the book. Mr. Dunn 1* a pho
tographer, a* well as writer, and accompanied
President McKinlev and President Roosevelt at
different times In their noted Journey*. The book
will be issued soon after the Chicago convention.
Th* local Taft men «ay that the hearty indorse
ment given the Secretary by Joseph 11. Choate,
Jacob 11. ■ehM and General Porter indicates un
mistakably that the conservative business interests
are entirely satisfied with Secretary Taft as a can
didate, and that he will do more to promote buiil
noss prosperity than any other candidate. General
Porter also »ays in his letter: •
The advocacy at the start of the several 'favor
ite sons" by the citizens el their. respective state*
was perfectly natural, us all such candidates had a
right to aspire to that high position, and are state**
■sea who if sacesssfvl eeaM lx» trusted to ad
minister the government with honesty and ability.
The conspicuous plac« they occupy in the minds of
their fellow eltUens ix only another proof of the
number of available statesmen of which the Re
publican party ran boast.
That Mr. Taft possesses nil the qualities in a
superior degree for the administration of so high a
trust no one who has Studios' hid career and meas
ured his public acts can doubt. My experience In

ttrant chose Judge Taft. the father of William H.
Taft, as Secretary of War, and afterward to repre

learning, powers of act ration and Integrity of
character placed himself la the first rank of the
statesmen of that day. Ill* d!*tlnr.ui*)u i .| «on hu*
