WMiiN'iTov. Jan is -Members of

Col Ceorge W. r.oethals said such a

that In case of war It would not be prac
ticably to send r.enforcemtjnls to the
Canal lone An armed force ample at
all times to deal witlr'ertlWweneles must
lie kept tbele. Col. lioethals told the
committee that while supplies might be
rushed to the Canal Zone overland it
would not be practicable for nasons
that be outlined to tush troops to the
Isthmus In the event of war He said
that an naval power that retained
control over the sou would as a result
maintain a certain control over the

Col. Corthals admitted. The enemy,
however, would be able to laud an army

could take the waterway.
Col. Coi thal" would have the army

The plans now being framed by the

In the coiitso of bis testimony Col.
Coethals took occasion to commend the

OasiMMi, .V. V., Jan. IS.- The acci
dental dropping of a weight has cleared
up n mystery which has been puzzling
tho wardens of Sing Sin prison from
the time of Wstrdeti Sage down to John S.
Kennedy, the Incumbent. Tho weight In
question showed how drugs like opium,
morphine.cocalneln powder ami plllform
and other things got to the convicts.
The discovery will be of benefit to tho
wardens of every other prison of the
Slate and to the keepers of city prisons
like the Tombs In New York.
Drugs have been shipped in In plctuie
post cards. Further than that from In-

That convicts addicted to the use of 1
narcotics have been able to rcoeive a
supply Is well known to every person
who knows anything about prisons. In
New York It has been the subject of re- ,

far as Sins ing was concerned. It had
come ut last to be considered by Wnr-,

to know all the news of the day and

In baseball. It couldn't be stopped.
No nun thought anything of it when
the postal card ei.tze manifested Itself
in the prison live or six. years ago. be-
cause the cum lets keep pretty well
abr.ast of the times. No attention was
paid either when the plomer photo-

mountains, cities and persons began to
give wav to the eiierune.l cards which
proiiiun themselves made In Cermany.
Neither was notice taken when the en-

cards, the ones with the bouquet of
! (lowers standing nut from the sur
i face, with the woodland scene with Ihe
.trees sticking nut, with the personal
photographs taised above L!ie surface

'message: "We are well at home and

allowed letter, that was their own con
i The mall that arrived one morning
a week or more ago contained several
seme of these cards and it was nil
' taken to the proper ottliial to be ex
amined. The man sat at his desk, the
cards before him. In some way or other
weight or a book dropped oil one of
i the largest post cards In such a manner
! thai the edge of It struck on the edge
!of the embosHlng. cutting a hole. To
, the surprise of the man nt the desk u
I tiny speck of while flew out of the
' hole nnd stopped in front of him. He
picked it up, looked at it curiously and
then started. It looked like the seg
ment of a small morphine pill, He took
It to tho prison physician and It was
such a pill. The embossing was ripped
loose and the hollow space or It was
found to be tilled with more morphine
pills, n goodly number of them a half
grain In strength and concentrated.
An examination nf every other em
bossed postal card showed that two-
thirds of them had some kind nf dope and Mrs. Gould attended the perform
In them, enough to last a fiend until ance at thu Lyric Theatre. After they
the next postal card was received. I
They were all small pills and powders,
out as strong as iney couiu oe mane
for tho size,
The Investigation that has followed
has convinced the warden that the con
victs of all prisons have been using
picture post cards for several years.
Not only has this been donn In Sing
Slug, but In other large prisons of the
Convicts have said that a woman in ,
New York city has the monopoly of
embossed cards In that district. Her 1
name has been sent to tho New York j
police and word received here Is that '
there Is shortly to be nn nrresl. They i
say she charged twcnty-tlve cents for
a card, with the drug extra.
She did a thriving business.
