Charles Alexander, democratic nomi

Chief Victim Terribly Mangled
PANAMA, May 23. Acting under
orders of President Taft, tho Panama
canal fortification committee nas con
cluded its report of how Uncle Sam
will guard tho big ditch in time of
war. President Taft's report is.in the
hands of tho congressional committee
and action on his recommendations is
expected by June 1. The reports do
not give tho exact locations of tho pro
posed fortifications, but it is is explain
ed that this cannot bo furnished until
information has been obtained regard
ing tho "status and availability of
certain parcels of land situated along
tho route of the canal.", The armament
for tho proposed fortifications is enum
craed as follows: Ten fourtcen-inch
rifles, twclvo six-inch rifles and twenty-jive
twelvo-incli mortars. The cost
is estimated in excess of $14,000,000.
"Tho' report states that the brfard'has
exuiiuiieu me gruunu in uiu lermiui ui
fho canal ajiU of territory in the neigh
borhood of the canal's' couro with a
view of choosing tho best sites for the
big guns. "It is tho right and duty
of tho United States to defend the work
upon which it is expending such an
enormous sum," tho president says in
his message. "An adequate defense
requires suitablo fortifications near tho
approaches to tho terminals. I am of
tho opinion that such' works as may bo
erected for the defense of tho canal
should bo completed, occupied and ready
for operation at tho time the canal it
self is completed and opened to the pas
sago of vessels."

were made between tho two elections.
Less interest. was shown in yesterday's
election than in tho primaries, and to
all appearances, the republican voto
was not large.
In their selections of yesterday, tho
voters of this city have, to all appear
