m.ition of such action. The three Sen
j ators from Panama, with one exception
j (and he was bitterly opposed to the
j treaty), and the six members of the
i House of Representatives have assidu

over the attitude of the opposition to the
treaty, with the possibility of secession
from the National Government.
Dr. Herran still clings to the hope that
a way will be found whereby the present
treaty will be ratified. He lays much
stress on the possibility that the Senate
may agree to a measure to be subse

is said to be a majority for the treaty,
giving President Marroquin authority to
negotiate directly an Instrument along
the lines of the present treaty.

The condition of Mrs. Griffith to-night Is
far from favorable to early recovery. Fe
ver has developed and she is unable to
obtain much rest. She is nervous and
the slightest noise startles her. Within
forty-eight hours the crisis will have been
reached and it will then be known just
what her chances of recovery are. The
physicians fear meningitis will develop.
"One of the worst disclosures made to
day at Santa Monica was the fact tes
tified to by several witnesses that Colonel
Griffith did not telephone to Los Angeles
for Mrs. Whipple or Dr. Moore, as he
stated that he did. He did not telephone
for any one, Dut ail the telephoning was
done by the clerk under the instructions
of the son. Mrs. Griffith told her son to
telephone for . her sister. Mrs. Whippier
and for the doctor, and the son went to
the office of the hotel, looked up the tel
ephone numbers and waited while the
clerk did the telephoning for him. Grif
fith made no effort to summon assist
ance."
Officers went to Santa Monica to-day
and took the sworn statements of many
persons. Some new witnesses were found
who gave important testimony, but what
it was has, of course, not been disclosed
and will not be until the case reaches the
courts. As to a portion of what has been
discovered Deputy District Attorney

Mrs. Griffith's sworn statement that her
husband shot her deliberately is true and
that he did attempt to murder her. Be

Griffith family, but now that Mrs. Grif
fith is lying at death's door there has de
veloped a degree of bitterness between
the two sides of the family which bodes

James Bowman, formerly president of
the federation, and J. J. Fitzpatrick. or
ganizer, said that the proceedings of the
meeting and the events that !ed up to
them were a disgrace to union labor in
the United States. Charges of dishonesty
were openly made against several promi
nent labor leaders and recommendations
were made that these men be suspended.
After a stormy session the federation de
cided to adopt a compromise plan and to
appoint a committee to investigate tho
charges arainst the men mentioned.
CHICAGO, Sept. 6.— Following the direct
charge that money thus far collected by
assessment from the various labor unions
of Chicago had been wasted and con
sumed in salaries, the Chicago Federation
of Labor to-day abolished its defense fund
committee after a stormy session, during
which lies were passed, incriminating
charges were made and fisticuffs were
narrowly averted.

"Not only bribery and corruption are
rampant in every branch of the adminis
tration, but a certain lawlessness is man
ifesting itself among the Moslem element,
which is sure to cause trouble in the fu
ture. The native Christians are op
pressed, but they dare not complain,
while the Europeans no longer enjoy the
security which existed a few years ago.
The house of the Italian Consul was late
ly rifled by burglars, and on August 23
the American Vice Consul waa fired at.
Arrests were made, but it always hap
pens that an innocent man is made to
suffer for the crime."
A letter from Beirut, dated August 29,
describes the condition of affairs there
under the present vali as scandalous. It
says !¦•»¦
The Constantinople correspondent of
the Standard telegraphs that the wedding
story given out by the vail of Beirut as
an explanation of the outrage on United
States Vice Consul Magelssen is proved
to be false, and the Vice Consul's assail
ant is believed to be known. It Is expect
ed that the United States will peremptor
ily demand the dismissal of the vali, who,
continues the correspondent, by common
consent is ruining Beirut. His disgrace
would also strike a blow at the baleful
influence of the Arab Izzet, a palace fa
vorite, whose creature he is.
ams (Turkish regular troops) are in most
case?? committing unheard of atrocities,
which are not solely the .work of the
Bashi Bazouks, as the authorities are
seeking to prove. The plight of the sur
vivors is terrible. Not darmg to leave
their houses, and subsisting on grass and
water, they * resemble people in the last
stages of famine. The Turks are also
losing heavily, judging from the number
of wounded arriving here."
Among the instances he gives in support
of his statement the correspondent re
lates that a priest's son in one village
was flayed alive and kept in this horrible
condition for several days, to the delight
of his tormentors, until a merciful Turk
shot him dead.
No Word from Irishman.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.— The adminis
tration is awaiting with some interest re
ports from United States Minister Leish
man at Constantinople and Admiral Cot
ton, commanding the American squadron
in Turkish waters, and whose cruisers,
the Brooklyn and San Francisco, are now
at Beirut, as to the condition of affairs
In their respective localities. Nothing
came from either of them to-day. On
their advices will depend the disposition
of Admiral Cotton's ships— whether they
remain in Turkish waters or to return to
their regular places on the European sta
tion.

|-^v EN LOMOND, Sept. 6.— Having
v/ recuperated from last night's
festivities, the members of the
1 » »^ Harmonie Singing Society, who
are enjoying a three days' outing
in the Santa Cruz Mountains, were pre
pared for another strenuous day. The
high jinks held last night will live long in
the annals of the society. It was for
members only, ami the fun was uncon
fined. Max Dunow's clever sketch was
up-to-date and created a great deal of
merriment.
To-day's programme opened with cere
mony. Toasts to absent members were
drunk and then breakfast was served in
the big dining-room. After breakfast the
members gathered in front of the hotel
and made the woods resound with song.
Professor Rigger led the singing, which
was of high order. Luncheon was served
In the open air.
In the afternoon the members took part
in bowling, shooting and swimming con
tests for prizes. The competition was
very keen and the sports afforded great
amusement to onlookers.
During the course of the second ban
quet this evening President Henry Plage
rnann delivered the following definition
of the word ' harmonie":
"The simple utterance of the word 'har
mony' produces a soothing effect. The
sense is complete. The word 'harmonie 1
means much more. Something that ha^i
been accomplished; acting together to a
common end; agreeing in action and feel
ing; living in peace and friendship, as a
harmonious family. This word should be
graven upon every man's heart."
Speeches were also delivered by John
Plagemann, Professor Rigger, Charles Al
pers and others. The evening's entertain
ment consisted of a concert at the hotel.
The Harmonie orchestra, led by Julius
Haug, rendered selections. The concert
lasted until a late hour and was enjoyed
by scores of visitors.
The organization will depart from here
to-morrow afternoon. Every one is hav
ing a cood time and is loth to leave
this charming spot. Among those here
are the following;

passed Reeves the latter started down

of the read and past Moore's rig; that
Moore fell from his buggy J'-ist whers
Reeves' rig passed him and after rising
walked a number of steps and fell dead.
In explaining the shots to Charles Swett
and his wife. Reeves said ha had shot
a rabbit. Reeves later -went home and
sent his son to notify another neighbor
that he had found a dead man on tha
road. Then he came to Modesto. Con
stable Davis arrested him when he wa3
nearly home again. Reeves refused to
discuss the crime, except to say that he
had shot his enemy.
MODESTO, Sept. «. — One farmer mur
dered another near this city about day
light this morning. Summers Moore was
killed by I*. P. Reeve*, Moore was shot
twice with a C-califcer rifl«, one «hot
passing throng^ his heart, the other en
tering about an Inch below the right nip
ple and passing throngh the body with
a backward course. When found Moor a
was unarmed, not eren. fca»ins a pocket
knife on his person.
Reeves at first denied' the crime, but
when confronted with Indisputable evi-.
dence confessed to the arresting ofScer,
Constable Davis, that he fired the shorn
that killed his neighbor. Both men have
families-. The dead man leaves a wife
and son. while Reeves has a wife and a.
large family of children.
EpcdaX rrtsrpEtch ts The CaS,
COLONEL IS SURPRISED.
"We will be able to prove that all the
rtatcments which Colonel Griffith made
on the nipht of the shooting were made
to defend his wife. He hap not thought of
himself in this matter at all until forced
to do so by his arrest. The arrest was
as unexpected to him as the shooting
was and he was more surprised that his
¦w-ife should make her accusation of at
tempted murder than he was that she
should shoot herself." *
It is further understood that the de
fense will go back in the history of the
family and attempt to prove that at the
time of the death of Rrls>walter from
blood poiFonin? Mrs. Griffith threatened
to take her life; that suicide had been in
her mind for many pears.
On the other hand the prosecution is far
It was the reaction from the intense
nervous strain under which the man has
l?<?on since Thursday and the after effect
of long-continued drinking, for it is posi
tively known that Colonel- Griffith has
been drinking heavily for many days. In
fact, many* of his peculiar actions since
the yhooting have been attributed by his
friends to drink.
Contrary to the general opinion that
ihe defense will make a clajm of acci
dent, it 5s stated on well-prounded au
thority 'that the defence will claim that
Mrs. Griffith was shot by her own act in
an att«*pt to commit suicide. Colonel
'.riffith would never consent to the insan
ity claim, notwithstanding the fact that
his wife and relatives take that view of
the matter and would be glad to liave
such a verdict rendered by the jury.
"We are not wrfecutTg Colonel Grif
fith," said I. B. Dockweiler. "We simply
feel that he should be incarcerated and
if the jury delivers a verdict of insanity
we will be pleased that he may have the
comforts of a private asylum, but If It
delivers a verdict of attempt to murder
we believe that he should go to jail, and
lastly, if the defense endeavors to prove
that Mrs. Griffith attempted to commit
suicide, in the event of her death within
the next week. I hope that he will hang."
Colonel Griffith has made the claim
from the first that he was attempting to
defend his wife when he made the state
ment at Santa Monica and afterward that
the shooting was" Accidental. Speaking
of this to-day, William H. Knight, secre
tary of Colonel Griffith, said:
LOS. ANGELES. Sept. 6^-Colonel
fith J. Griffith broke down and cried to
day when offered sympathy by a friend.
He epent the day at the residence of Dr.
E. M. Griffith, Sixteenth, and Valencia
streets, and the day proved the hardest
one for him clnco tho shooting of Mrs.
Griffith Thursday night.
A friend of tho colonel called at the
house to extend hi« sympathy and found
h!m lying on a couch on the front porch,
with a litht blanket thrown over him.
Griffith arose and extended his hand with
his ueual cordiality, but. the hand was hot
and feverish and lacked- the energetic grip
which generally accompanies his hand
clasp.
"I have but a moment to stay. Colonel
Griffith." said the friend, "but I want to
know how you are getting on and see if
there is anything I can do for you. No
man vras ever placed in a more terrible
position, and I feel for you. No matter
¦whether you shot your wife or not, no
man can ever make me believe that you
«Jld so with malice aforemought. Tou
have my sympathy, and I pity you from
the bottom of my heart."
Such sympathy' proved too much for
Colonel Griffith, and this strong roan, who
¦was never before known to los^ his com
posure, broke down. His face twitched
as he tried to answer and the cords In
the beck of his nerk moved up and down,
the veins on his forehead swelled, and his
eyes filled with tears. He' cried like a
child. He was apparently suffering
agony, and. placing his Tjand ever his
eyes, he said in broken words:
"I am very tired. I am feverish. I
do not fee! well." and he flovrly turned
and entered the house, assisted by Dr.
Griffith.

The car from Nashua carrying fifty-four
passengers for Cannobie Lake, a summer
resort, approached the curve a quarter of
a mile west of Pelham Center at terrific
speed, accentuated by a down Rrade. The
cars met on a curve, neither motorman
seeing the approaching car until too late
to avoid a collision. Neither was there
time for the passengers to escape by
jumping- when the cars came together
with a force that threw the westbound
car directly under the '-forward part of
the other, crushing the top of the car
down upon the passengers and pinioning
those occupying the first turee seats in
the wreckage.
Persons who witnessed the collision
stated afterward that it came so unex
pectedly that it seemed some minutes
before the passengers realized what had
happened. All were silent and the pas
sengers made no outcry, appearing dazed
by the shock.
Near the accident were a number of
campers who at once rushed to the scene.
With crowbars and other instruments
the wrecked roofs of the cars were pried
up and the imprisoned passengers re
leased. None of the parsengcrs on the
two cars escaped injury or some sort, al
though a number were not seriously hurt.
Ae the accident took place at some dis
tance from any large .city the injured
were distributed among: tne hospitals of

PELHAM, N. H.. Sept 6.-Through a
head-on, collision to-day two electric cars,
each running, it Is said, at a rate of more
than twenty miles an hour, four persons
wer» killed and nineteen were so serious
ly Injured that they are under physicians'
care and several of these are expected to
die. There were seventy passengers on the
two cars and many others received cuts
and minor wounds which did not prevent
their going to their homes. The accident
occurred on the line which runs through
this town between Lowell and Nashua
and one of the care which was coming
from the latter city, was nearly fliled with
people on their way to a summer resort.
The collision was due, according to the
officials of the road, to a misunderstand
ing: of the starter's orders by the motor
man of the car bound for Nashua. The car
Btarter endeavored to rectify this mistake
by shutting oft the power and trying to
recall the Nashua bound car, but it failed.

No arrests were made.
SALT LAKE, Sept- 6.— Former United
States Senator Arthur Brown's notorious
Intrigue with Mrs. Annie Bradley, a scan
dal which extended from New York to
Ban Francisco, terminated to-day in an
encounter In which the Senator cast oft
the- woman, but lost four front teeth »
severing: the relations which have exist
ed between the couple for several years.
Brown's infatuation for Mrs. Bradley
has been a common scandal for
years. Mrs. Brown, who Is a society
wonum, attempted to break off the liaison
and on three occasions had Senator
Brown and Mrs. .Bradley arrested on
criminal charges. Both are now under
bond in these cases. Mrs. Brown de
clared she would break the hold Mrs.
Bradley had on the Senator If it took the
