HIS PANAMA "STORY"
Former Minister Asks Congress

With the urgent request that It be
Inserted in the public records next lo
the "story of Pannnm," which it contra
dicts with wimp vehemence, Philippe
Hunau-Varilla, one time Minister Pleni
potentiary from Panama to the United
(States, chief engineer of the old French
I'anul, has addressed a long document
to the House Committee on foreign
Affairs at Washington.
Mr. Bunau-Varllla with very little pre
liminary proceeds to on analysis of the
"story." an it hasleen railed in the public
documents which came from Henry H

and that of William Nelson Cromwell.
one time counsel and representative nf
the canal stockholders. Mr. Hall's narra
t Ive, Mr.Bunau-Varilla says, is in line with
the plea of Mr. Cromwell for IMO.OOO for
services, which plea he criticises at grea
Mr. Hunati-Varllla gives his own version
of Mr. Cromwell's activities from the days
of the fight against the Nicaragua canal
project up to and including the Panama
revolution and the treaties which fol
lowed. In the matter of the revolution
he ascribes to the New York lawyer the
role of an adviser andabettor.
He quotes this from "Sullivan A Crom
well's Plea for Fees:"
"In the course of a very active and very
extended professional career the firm
of Sullivan A Cromwell had found itself
placed in intimate relations susceptible
of being used to advantage with men
possessing influence and power they
(the memlers of the llrm) have also come
to know and be in a position to influence
a considerable number of public men in
M. Hunau-Varilla instances as some of
the men who had to do with the selection
of the Panama route. Secretary of State
Hay, Senator Mark Hunna, Senator Mor-
;an of Alabama and Congressman Hop
urn, all of whom were committed to the
one route or the other for many years. He
declares that one claim of Mr. Cromwell,
in which he set forth his work in 1890 and
took credit for impressing upon Col.
I.udlow, head of the commission investi
gating the Nicaragua route, the advan
tages of the Panama route, was erroneous
and that Col. Ludlow's report was made
in November, 180.1, two months before Mr.
Cromwell's firm had begun its task of in
terviewing statesmen and urging Panama.
The credit for consistent anil effective
advocacy of the Panama route, according
to the document, should go lirst to the
late John Bigelow, who in Novenber,
1R9B. wrote to Secretary of Stato Hav, hi
lifelong friend, a request that he persuade
President McKinley not to commit him
self to the Nicaragua route until he had
investigated the wav across Panama,
It was this suggestion that mvi) the clav,
nocording to M Hunau-Varilla. which he
contrasts with the statement in the Crom
well plea to the French stockholders for
compensation:' "We obtained th passage
of a bill appointing a new commission to
examine the Panama route and report
thereon March 3. 1K99."
Considerable space is given to the
temporary cessation of Mr. (Yomwell's
activities as representative of the French
stockholders in mil. Mr Cromwell ivas
not acting for a time and according to
the public documents he was induced to
take up the work again bv urgent cabling.
M. Bunau-Varilla declares that Mr.
Cromwell ceased work in response to a
cable in June, 1601, nnd was taken back
nt tho intercession of Maurice Bunau
Varilla, editor of the Paris Matin, whom
Philippe Bunau-Varilla had induced to
go to the officers of thu company. Senator
Hanna had asked him in Washington to
do this, Mr. Hanna stating that he was
acting at the request of J Edward Simmon'1
of New York, his old banker. A part of
a cablegram from France to Mr. Cromwell
is quoted, the subject matter of which i-
"You to be reinstated in vour position
as general counsel of Compagnin Nouvelle
de Panama; rely on your cooperation to
conclude matter of sale property.
But wo requlro most expressly that no
donation be made now or later, nor
promises be made to any one whomsoever
which might bind the Compagnie Nouvelle
dn Panama." Subsequent communica
tions declared that results must be
"obtained by legitimate means."
The revolution which brought forth
the republic of Panama together with the
connection of himself and Mr. Cromwell
with it is taken up at length. Bunau
Varilla came to the United States in the
Hummer of 1003 to meet his wife and son,
who were visiting Mr. Bigelow. On his
arrival lie was visited by Dr. Amador,
afterward President of the republio of
Panamn, who at th time was in despair.
The document says on this point:
He told me t hat lie and Ids friends on
the Isthmus in the eourso nf the year had
sent mm named ('apt Beets, an em
ployee of the Panama It.illrnnel, to see
Mr. Mrake, vice-president of tho company,
and Inquire through him if Mr Cromwell
could obtain for a involution a positive
support In money and In military force
from the American eovertiniont. He told
me that thin question, which seemed to
me childish, wns answered ewouraginely
both by Mr. Drake and Mr Cimnnell,
who received .Mr. Peers and promised
everything to him. He further said that
in order to inmprobate the results ol
liners' mission ami to enter Into activity
If It were true, his friends had delegated
him to see Mr Hav i-ersonnlly, through
Mr. Cromwell. He told nie that having
thus come to earrv out that plan, he had
been tlrst very cordially received by Mr.
Cromwell anil by Mr Drake, who was
Mr. Cromwell's conlldenti.il man in the
Intrigue and corresponded with Doers
about It. He told nu that after this ex
lellent reception when he was expeollnij
to go and see Secretary Hav with Mr.
( romwell, the latter had si dilrnly turnrd
hls back upon him
He considered that ns an odious be
trayal, exposing himself as well as his
rlends to be shot and their properties to
he confiscated when Colombia would know'
Dr. Amador, M, Bunau-Varilla says
had with him copies of cahle messages
sent early and received by his friends and
later only the cablegrams which had
been sent from Panama to Mr Cromwell,
which wpre not answered. The revolution
then hung in tho balance. As he was im
plicated in tho early negotiations, the
grave danger ihen was that Colombia
might confiscate tho canal property
because Mr Cromwell was acting as the
agent of the owners, The revolutionists
were in despair and there were threats of
The change of attitude, according to
Hunau-Varilla, was never explained.

SHOT QUALIFYING FOR
LOUIS THE LUMP'S JOB
Jimmy Buck, a Newcomer, Wins
His Spurs Defending His
Jimmy Buck in the Hudson street
hospital with a bullet hole through his
right shoulder was about the happiest
man in New York city yesterday.
Jimmy not only vindicated his selection
as the bodyguard of his leader, Jimmy
Kelly, yesterday morning, but showed
that he could stand the "gaff" by drawing
the shots of an assailant while Kelly made
a successful getaway.
Until recently Jimmy Kelly's body
guard was Louis Poggl, known as Louis
the Lump, and one of the handiest gun
fighters in tho city.
Louis the Lump got into troublo
with the authorities about threo weeks
ago on account of a careless habit of
carrying a very large and businesslike ,
automatic pistol. ,
The matter of selecting his successor
was difficult and delicate. There were
any number of applicants from members
of tho gang, and Jimmy Buck, w ho has
not been in Chinatown very Ions, was
selected. '. ,
Jimmy Ruck had his chance earlv
yesterday. It was just before daylight i
that he and his captain were passing
Pell and the Bowery when a mnn sprang
from a doorway behind them and cut
loose with a revolver. Kelly dived into
a doorway and Buck wheeled, one hand
reaching tor his weapon. Bt fore he, could
get It into nction the bullet struck him
in the right shoulder, knocking him
down. The shooter turned and riti.
Kelly was out of the doorway in a sec
ond and carried Buck into the little all
night drug store there. Policeman Vail
of the Oak street station heard the shots
and saw Paddy Shay streaking around
the Kast Broadwav corner. Vail pulled
his own gun and Shay stopped.
Ruck wns taken to the hospital and
his wound dressed. When Paddy Shay
was brought over Buck looked at him
steadily. "Don't know th' guy," he said.
Jimmy Kelly had no knowledge of the
hooting or tho shooter.
CUT OFF MRS. VAN LOAN.
Codicil Made by Mrs. Fltigerald After a
Surrogate Fowler heard yesterday a
contest of the will of Mrs. Mary IOilUe
Fitzgerald of SO Madison avenue, who
died at Southampton, L. I on Septetniier
7, 1011. Two years before her death Mrs.
Fitzgerald made a will directing that
each of four children have JIOO.O"1). Just
before her death, and after she had been
removed from the home of her daughter,
Mrs. Anna Van Ixkiii, at Iiwretioe, Mrs.
Fitzgerald made a codicil cutting off
.Mrs. Van Ixian for "unfilial conduct."
Mrs. Van Ioun contested the will.
The three other children are Misses
Elizabeth xinii Marv C. Fitzire.raM ami
a son, Frederick. Mi-s Mary Hizgcrnld
of so Madison avenue testified yesterday '
that while her mother was ill at Mrs. Van
Loan's last summer the nurse, Mary i
Mclaughlin, telephoned to the witness
to come there at once. Miss Fitzgerald j
went and tho nurse told her that Mrs.
Van lioan has asked her to enter into a
plan ngaitiBt the other children. Mrs.
Van loan discharged the nurse im
mediately, and Miss Fitzgerald took her
Mrs. Van Loan denies that she made
any improper suggestion to tho nurse
and said that the codicil was executed
through the undue influence of Mary.

CRISIS TO-DAY IN THE
PASSAIC MILLS STRIKE
Outcome of Parade Nan Likely
to Tell Whether It Is to
He Kept Up.
MILL GATES TO BE OPENED
Mg Force of Deputies Will He on Hand
Lawrence Strike Boss Still
Keeping- Out of Right.
Passaic N. .1.', April 8. To-tnomw
will show how much of a hold the
weavers' ntriku has on Passaic. There
Is n feeling here to-night thnt Koln
stein's parade of strikers, due for to
morrow morning, Is the crisis of the
strike. If Ilelnsteln gets Ills people Into
Hue then the strike Is apt to go on for
some time yet, but If, as the employers
prophesy, the bulk of the strikers go
back to their Jobs three hours before
the parade starts, then the Passaic mill
district will be at peace once more.
The owners of two of the big mills
nre so sure that the end of the atrlke
Is In sight that they will open their
gates In the morning. The Dundee
Textile Company of Clifton, which oper
ates the only silk mill In the district
nnd employs 100 hnnds, has announced
that It will start running again. It
has been shut down for n week. The
other mill which will open Is that of C. e
CSurllehl Worsted Spinning Company,
which employs 3,"i0 workers. The mill
has been closed for ten days.
ltelnsteln's palade Is due to start nt 10
o'clock this morning. He Is stendfast In
saying that the whole completments of
strikers, men and girls, will be on hand to
Join In the procession. The line of march
will be through the principal streets of
Passaic and out Into the mill district,
even as fnr as Garfield. The strikers
If ltelnsteln's plans go through will
pass both the Hotnny Worsted mills In
Passaic and the 1'orstmann-HutTmnnn
mills In Garfield, both of which have
been the scene of trouble.
The deputies are ready for something
unusual, whatever it may he. While
the Sheriff Is hoping that thsfce will be
no trouble, he is taking no chances.
I'niler Sheriff Heath, who has been in
charge of the Sheriff's men at the (Jar
Held mills, said to-day that he will have
17." men on hand to guard the Korst-mann-IIutTmnnn
property agnlnst the
marching strikers. This Is about twice
us many men as he has had on duty
nt any other time.
To-day, which has been u church hoM
dr.y and quiet as far as strike dhturh-unc-s
are concerned, found only a
dozen deputies at the Uartleld mills.
Heath discharged manv of his old men
and villi refuse to take them back on
the genital count of incompetency.
Ali-ejt- fifty have gone In this way.
William D. Haywood Is on bird terms
.'Itb everybody heie except n few of
his own faction of the 1. W. W. In Oar
Held nnil the I'assalc Socialists. A com
mittee of the Socialist party In I'assalc
won; to ielnsteln to-day and assured
him that in the eyes of that party the
strike would be a failure unless Hay
wood should be allowed to run It.
Haywood's faction rented Neumann's
Hull last week for a Haywood meeting
to-morrow night. To-day Neumann got
n unlet word from the police that he
had belt T break his engagement. He
did right away, leaving the Haywood
faction with no place In Passaic or
(iarlleld where they may hold a meet
ing. No I'assalc children have been sent
to New York. It was said that a few
families haxo sent their children to be
quartered with relatives In nearby
towns, but that no general exodus like
thnt from Lawrence had taken place.

TRAINER M'CORMICK DIES.
Handler of Many Famous Racehorses
Passes Away In (lermany.
Word was received here from Berlin
yesterday that James II, McCormlck, the
well known trainer of thoroughbreds, had
dieil I hero early Saturday morning. Super
visor Pnyton Hedge's of Pntchogue, I L,
McCormlck 's son-in-law, received a cable
gram containing the sad news.
McCormlck sailed for Germany last
January to fill another contract with llarnn
Oppcnheim, but It was not long after his
nrrlwil in Berlin that he became seriously
III. He turn compelled, therefore, to resign
his post, and In sent for John J. Hylund to

MIKE MURPHY MAY NOT GO.
Two Other Trainers I.lkely to Accompany
Word from Philadelphia makes it appear
that Mike Murphy wilt not be able to accom
pany the Olympic team to .Stockholm.
Although on his legs, the great trainer is
far from being a well man, and the tuition
of about s hundred men on n long trip would
tie an arduous undertaking. To prepare
the Pennsylvania team for the Intercolle
glote meet Is as much as Mike will be able
to endure, nnd he will need a long rest after
the affair is over.
With Murphy out as head mentor there
will be a vacancy difficult to till. If his
absence Is necessary the Olympic com
mittee has planned to have two trainers,
one I rom the Knst nnd one from the West
Several have been mentioned as Murphy's
assistants, and from the lot a pair may be
tucked, t hlcago wanted Martin Delanoy,

were nearu at me last meeting 01 tne iiyin

In ease Murphy cannot go, very likely there

EARLY AND ENDS LATE
l'ennell, Crane, Lorillnrd, Iluhn
and Cutting Arc Winners
CRANE SLOW TO START
Lowell of Homo Club llns Two .Sets
to One Ilcforc Former Cham
pion Wakes Up,
Championship court tennis began early
and ended late to open the national tour
nament nt the Itacquet and Tennis Club
on West Korty-thlrd stieet yesterday.
Among the survivors of the day weie
Vane l'ennell, amateur title holder of
Oreat Hrltaln In 1 904, nnd Joshua Crane
of Huston, several tlnns winner of the
American championship. Of the six
matches carded, all were irtayed to a
conclusion except one which saw T, A.
Itavemeyer of this clt win from Wilson
I'otter of Philadelphia, by default.
Fulton Cutting of Cambridge, a Har
X'ard student, disposed of O. I, Scott In
straight sets, the younger man display
bur speed and accuracy that promise
well for a place among the best after a
another year or so. The lone entrant from
Philadelphia, W. II, T. Iluhn, won In
straight sets over D. P. Idiocies of Hos
ton, while I'lene l.orllhircl, Jr., of Tux
edo took S. S. 1'urmun of tho home club
Into camp after four sets.
C 12. Sands, a local X'eternn, who drew
a bye, will meet Cutting In the opening
match of the second round this morning.
Havenieyer will then tacklu Crane, while
Iluhn and l'ennell will be tho principals
In the other match, lorlllnrd has the bye.
The critics watched l'ennell closely
when he took the court against C Hub
sell of Hoston. After the opening game,
in which tho foreigner was u trifle Un
steady, the difference In the ability of
the two men was apparent to all. l'en
nell proved himself a muster of nil strokes,
taking the ball from the fore or back
band with equal facility. Ilussetl ie
sorted to the volleying game a gieat deal.
He managed to win five games, one In the
first and two each In the either sets.
The protrncti-d match between Crane
and J. H. Lowell, of the home club, fur
nished the surprise of the day, for It had
been expected that the former champion
would have an easy task with Ills opuo
nent.i It was not until the sets stood 2
to 1 against Hie ltnatonlnn Mint h
settled down In earnest. Lowell gained
the vantage point In the opening game
with a shot to the tambour and the neces
sary ace followed when Crane found the
net. Several times during this set Lowell
reached (he grille window and although
Crane's strokes were uncertain, the local
man had manv winning imenlni-s tn hi.
ciidlt and he won the first set ', 2.
Crane steadlrd down considerably In
the second set and reached the dedans and
the grille window with unerring accuracy.
His strokes along the side wall were also
well executed, causing his man to roach
for nlnwint tv.-vthlnt t ,.lu,.t.,.- ,...
chases Crane displayed much of his cist
whtle skill in this set, which he won 6
The hardest fought set nf IIia mtill,
the third, for many nrntrsetnd ruiAa
marked nearly every game. Ixivvell
dually won this. to 4. Crane showed
great Improvement from thnt iiuim.ni in
coming much speedier, anil far more accu-
u.V 'V ,n. P'ayers passed each other
while changing sides. Lowell rematked
that he seemed to be having considera
ble good fortune, to which the Hoston man
leplled. "lou're playing excellently."
Crane, however, sent the ball speeding
nt his man In such a vailetv of angles
that Lowell soon tweame confused. He
icau mane an unexpectedly good stand,
for all that. Crane took the last two sets
In decisive fashion, the count being 6 1
