They See a Lack of Consistency in tiie Ac
tion of L'ncle Sam.
Washington, Nov. (J. Great Britain's
representatives here are making mer
ry over the isthmian matter. They
say that if the United States wanted
Panama it could take it and all would
be well and good. "Hut how about
telling the Colombians there must be
no bloodshed?" said the Englishmen.
"The United States once put down a
big rebellion, and now it will not let
Colombia put down a little one. It's
queer how the thing works."
The British regard the Panama trou
ble and Uncle Sam's connection there
with as i joke of great magnitude.
Charge Hrrran, of Colombia, still is
talking freely. He intimates that the
Colombian congress may meet and rec
ognize th right of the hitherto exploit
ed Intemationa Canal company to dig
the ditch, and. then Herran thinks
strenuous things might happen.

Tliat Check from Uavemeyer.
When ex-Lieutenant Governor Lee
took the stand in the trial of State
Senator Frank Frris he told of re
ceiving a $1.(KH) check from Uavemey
er, the sugar magnate, in 1002.
"Did you ask Kelley (the baking pow
eler lobbyist) to see Uavemeyer and
ask him to contribute to your cam
paign fund?" was asked of Lee. "I
think I did."
"Wasn't the $1,000 from the sugar
trust a contribution to your campaign
fund?" "It was not."
Lee Explain the Matter.
Lee, in answer to a qmstion, said:
''The session of congress prior to July,
VM'2, was legislating regarding the
duty on raw sugar. I was running a
growers' j taper. I was endeavoring to
get advertising for my paper. I wrote
letters te congressmen and others get
ting their opinions on the reduction of
2 cents a pound on the duty on raw
sugar. I put their letters in pamphlet
form ami elistributed them. The 1.
000 check from Mr. Uavemeyer was
in payment for this work."

Never Intimated to Lee That the Commit
tee Members Wanted Boodle.
After excusing Lee and hearing one
or two other witnesses the state closed
its side of the case, and Senator Farris
took the stand in his own defense. He
positively elenied Lee's statement that
he had given Farris $7,000 for himself
and the other members of the criminal
jurisprudence committee to influence
their votes ou the anti-alum bill.
"Did you ever say to Lee that the
members of the committees elemanded
$1,000 apiece?" was asked of Senator
Farris. "I did not," very positively. "I
made no proposition."
"Did you ever tell Lee that the boys
wanted something tangible?" "I did
"Did Mr. Lee bring to you $7,000 or
any other sum and give it to you?"
"He tlid not. I receiveel no money
from him ami I divided no money."
"Did Lee pay you any money what
ever for yuor vote or influence in the
legislature. "He did not."
Farris denied that he had ever met
D. J. Kelley, the lobbyist, or that Lee
had showed him a telegram from Kel
lej' regarding the alum bill.

SENATE COMMITTEE'S DESIGN
Which Holds That a Joint Resolution
Id Sufficient, Is Antagonized
Washington, Nov. C. Senators AI1I
fcon, Aldrich, Spoouer and Piatt of
Connecticut, arrived in Washington
and immediately went into conference
in Allison's apartments, at the Ailing
ton hotel. At the conclusiuu Allison
said lie believed, the Cuban tlcuty
would be iinule operative by joint res
olution, lie cited the nu'thod adopted
by congress in relation to the Mexican
treaty as a precedent.
The special committee appointed by
the senate at the last session to pre
pare a linancial biil to be submitted for
consideration of the Fifty-eighth con
gress has not prepared a draft
of its ideas, and Allison said he did not
look for much, linancial legislation.
Some Iift"crem-e of Opinion.
Apropos to the foregoing relative to
the Cuban reciprocity treaty there are
some interesting developments as to
the method of congressional procedure.
That treaty was amejided by the sen
ate adding the words "this treaty shall
not take effect until the same shall
have been approved by the cougress."
It had been generally supposed that a
joint resolution or a hill approving the
treaty would be all that was neces
sary, but members of the house and
some senators take an entirely differ
ent view. They say that a bill must
be passed reducing the duty on the
products of Cuba, anel that every pro
vision affecting duties must be cuact
td in the legislation.
How It I Viewed by Tawuey.
Representative- Tawuey, of Minneso
ta, who was leader of the Republican
minority that opposed the reciprocity
bill in the last congress, said that the
treaty of 1S54 with Uruit Britain for
reciprocity with Canada, and the reci
procity treaty of 1S7S with Hawaii,
both were at once followed by legis
lation in the form ol a bill reciting
the articles that were to be admitted
duty free'. Tawuey contends that to
approve the treaty by a simple reso
lution would be void, and assorts that
the sugar provision of the treaty is
nothing more than a pledge of the
good faith of the government that the
duties on sugar shall not be changed
during the life of the treaty. Any tar
iff bill, he contt neis. can abrogate this
provision of the treaty or the treaty it
self. Teller's View Is Not Hopeful.
Senator Teller, of Colorado, thinks
ihat if approval is attempted by joint
resolution it will raise a constitution
al question which will cause a long
debate in the senate'. Teller expects
that the whole tariff question will be
opeueel up for discussion by the Cu
ban measure', and that it will be well
into the regular session before action
ou the matter is taken by the senate.
MEETING OF KOYALTY
A FRESH PLEDGE OF PEACE
St. Petersburg, Nov. O. The meet
ing of the czar and Kinjeror Will
iam at Wiesbaden is commented on
hy the newspapers here as a fresh
pledge of the preservation of general
peace. The Novosti's remarks attract
special attention, its they reiterate the
suggestion of an Anglo-llussian rap
prochement, which has been mooted re
cently by some Russian writers.
The Novosti denit s that Itussia and
(Jmit Britain must remain rivals, and
says the clearest proof of this is found
in Britain's absolutely peaceful pol
icy and the inlluence she has exercised
over Japan in the llusso-.Tapanese dif
ferences. The paper sees no reason
why a more frequent exchange of
views, giving more intimate knowledge
of each other, should not lead to a sim
ilar extente as effected between tJreat
Britain anel France.
