INTRIGUE AIID PLOTTING
Actions Which Make a Sister
Republic Look Askance at Us.
SOME BOUGH BIDING DIPLOMACY.
Those Cloae to tbe President Were
Evidently In Touch With the Pan
ama Revolutionist The Rotten
Canal Scheme Ha Besmirched All
Who Have Touched It.
Panama! The name is redolent of
loot, of wrecked fortunes, subsidized
newspapers, and we have the word of
Ilcnry Watterson that the Republican
gray wolves of the United States sen
ate are interested in the financial trans
actions that have enveloped Panama in
scandal and disgrace, llitherto it was
but the characters of the Individuals
that were smirched with the slime
that has Inevitably bedraggled its pro
moters and its friends. When the ex
posure of Panama rottenness occurred
in France, the people of the United
States looked on in horror at the cor
ruption in a sister republic. Now the
misery has come closer home, nud Tau
auia, true to its reputation that what
ever and whoever touched It must be
defiled, has tarnished the honor of the
United States and ruined our reputa
tion among South American republics
as a fair dealing nation. !fhe petty
rascalities and avarice of the United
States of Colombia are no excuse for a
great nation to retaliate with greater
infamy. The way of the ltoosevelt ad
ministration was clear; congress had
blazed the path and ordered that ne
gotiations with Nicaragua were to be
opened if after a reasonable time Co
lombia refused our generous offer.
Oh, that President ltoosevelt had car
ried out the plain instructions of con
gress or even awaited further action
of the representatives of the nation!
But the tempter was at hand, and in
trigue and plottlug were adopted when
straightforward Americanism was the
duty of the hour.
The circumstantial evidence is cer
tainly very strong that President
Roosevelt was privy to, if not an accom
plice in, the secession of Panama from
the United States of Colombia. One
of the chief witnesses of this extraor
dinary and revolutionary proceeding is
Consul General Gudger, who states that
he was "not the least surprised" by the
secession of Panama, and he also says,
"b'ivtl months ago the revolution was
a foregone conclusion, as we all know."
Who could "we" mean but the diplo
matic end of the administration, espe
cially President ltoosevelt and Secre
tary Hay? This frank avowal of Con
sul General Gudger that "we all knew"
could not have been meant for the pub
lic, for to the latter the revolution
came as suddeuly as a clap of thunder
out of a clear sky. There appears to
have been one, outside of the diplo
mats, included in the "we," for he
faithfully foretold what has since hap
pened. This was no less a person than
Dr. Albert Shaw, the editor of the lie
view of Reviews, friend of President
Roosevelt from childhood and his con
stant visitor at the White House and
Oyster Bay. In the last issue of his
magazine he certainly showed extraor
dinary prescience or the value of hav
ing Inside information. Dr. Shaw in
the article says he had no intimation
from high quarters of what would oc
cur, so we must conclude that his well
known scientific knowledge of psychic
al phenomena had established wireless
telegraphic communication between
himself and the distinguished occupant
of the White House. This exhibition
of mind reading enabled the editor of
the Review of Reviews to faithfully
jot down for the benefit of the public
what did happen and to foretell the
startling and most energetic revolution
ever accomplished. Secretary Hay in
his defense of the actions of the ad
ministration admits that the revolution
was concocted in "secret" and that It
belched forth with a "suddenness" that
startled the world. If President Roose
velt and John Hay did not know what
was going to happen it was remark
able that they had arranged to have
war ships and an extra force of marines
In near proximity to tbe scene of ac
tion, which were at once ordered to aid
in consummating the revolutionary plot.
Dr. Shaw knew what was coming.
So did Consuf General Gudger, and it
is therefore difficult to believe that the
secretary of state was as innocent as
he tries to make the country believe he
was or that President Roosevelt was
DurDoeelv kept , uninformed by his
friends "and poli'tical'associat'es. "
Whoever concocted the revolution,
he United States showed excessive
haste in receiving the goods stolen
from her sister republic and acting as
a Philadelphia policeman in prevent
ing their recovery. That act amounted
to a declaration of war against Colom
bia, although tbe constitution express
ly reserves that great prerogative to the
congress of the United States.
There are vast hidden dangers to the
American people m joining their for
tunes with the corrupt Panama con
spirators, native and French.
MASTER OF THE VESSEL.
A ' Story of Farra arut In Command
- When bat Twelve Yenra of A are.
The story of a boy of twelve years
acting as commander of a ship seems
rather wonderful, yet Farragut waa
but twelve years and four days old
when he was ptit in command of the
Barclay, a prize nhip taken by Captain
Porter. In consideration of his tender
years, says the author of "Twenty-six
Historic Ships," the former English
master of the vessel was seut in her
for the possible benefit the young prize
master might find in his advice. Far
ragut tells the story of the queer di
vision of authority in his journal as
"I considered that the day of trial
had arrived, for I was a little afraid of
the old fellow, as every one else was.
But the time had come for me at least
to play the man. So I mustered up
courage and informed the captain that
I desired the main topsail filled away
in order that we might close up with
the Essex Junior. He replied that he
wouhl shoot any man who dared to
touch a roje without his orders. He
would go his own course and had no
Idea of trusting himself with 'a blasted
nutshell, and then he went below for
his pistols. v
"I called my right baud man of the
crew and told him of my situation. I
also informed him that I wanted the
main topsail filled. He answered with
a clear 'Aye, aye, ulr, in a manner that
was not to be misunderstood, and my
confidence was perfectly restored.
"From that moment I became master
of the vessel and immediately gave all
necessary orders for making sail, no
tifying the captain not to come on with
his pistols unless he wished to go over
board, for I really would have had
very little trouble in having such an
A Paradox Explained.
Why does not a man weigh a pound
more immediately after eating a pound
weight of food? A little reflection will
readily explain this apparent mystery.
During the process of mastication, de
glutition, etc., certain muscles are
brought into active play, and the exer
cise of any muscle necessitates a tem
porary waste of its tissues, and a cer
tain amount of carbon is eliminated
and passed on during tbe course of the
meal. This loss, however, is trifling as
compared with that due to respiration
and perspiration, both of which are
increased during the various operations
of making a meal.
The length of time one may take to
consume a pound of food makes but
little difference to those losses, for if it
is eaten leisurely there is but slight
increase of respiration or perspiration,
whereas if it is hurried through both
are abnormally accelerated. Hence by
the time the pound is eaten the con
sumer has lost appreciably in moisture
and carbonic acid.
lie Was ills Own Grandfather.
Of all genealogical curiosities the one
set forth below is probably the oddest
a singular piece of reasoning to prove
that a man may be his own grandfather!
Here It is: There was a widow (Anne)
and her daughter (Jane) and a man
(George) and his son (Henry). This
widow married the son, and the daugh
ter married tlie father. The widow was
therefore mother (in law) to her hus
band's father and grandmother to her
own husband. By this husband she
had a son (David), to whom she was, of
course, great-grandmother. Now, the
son of a great-grandmother must be
grandfather or granduncle to the per
son to whom his mother was or is
great-grandmotlier, but in this instance
Anne was great-grandmother to him
(David); therefore David could not be
other than his own grandfather.

PEOPLE OF THE DAY
lie Disappointed the Canadians.
Many of the leading men of Canada
have expressed disapproval of the find
ings of the Alaska boundary commis
sion, 'and they have been baefced in
their iwsltion by prominent newspa
pers of the Dominion. Of course dis
satisfaction with the decision of the
t Zfy ,f,j
commission means dissatisfaction with
Lord Alverstone, lord chief justice of
England, whoiie course as a member
of the commission resulted in a deci
sion which Canadians protest is too
favorable to the Uuited States and
consequently unfair to Canada. In the
discussion of the subject In Canada
considerable feeling has been shown.
The controversy has not been sof
tened nor have the Canadians been mol
lified by a letter in the Toronto World
by Captain Algernon Sartoris, grandson
of General II. S. Grant. Captain Sar
toris is staying at Coburg, near Toron
to. Ills letter to the editor of the
World closed with this irritating para
graph: "As a matter of fact, Canada lives
as- a colonial power simply through
the sufferance of the American repub
lic, which could at any time take the
country and, in the opinion of the un
dersigned, was very foolish not to do
so long ago."
Senator Ilauoa'i Flrat Speech.
"The way Senator llanna became a
speaker was something wonderful,"
says Postmaster General Payne. "I
was with him the first speech he ever
tried to make. It was in 1S9G on the
east side in New York. Senator llan
na wanted to say something, but he
had never been on his feet to make a
speech in his life, aud he was afraid
that he would make an utter failure
in his effort. But he was deeply in
terested iu his subject, and the two
minute talk that he started out to
make developed into a twenty minute
speech tbat was one of the best things
I ever heard. After that Senator Han
na. never seemed to have any fear
about speaking, and I consider him one
of the best speakers in the country to
day, lie is convincing and clear."

Mrs. Otto C. lloinze of Brooklyn tells
why her son, the successful jjoung

he later attended school In Germany

MISS M0NIE BOWEY
No. 38 Perry Street. DETROIT, MICHIGAN
A couple of winters azo I
slipped on a frozen sidewalk
and fell flat on my back. On
being examined I found that
I had sustained internal inju
ries which laid me up for more
than two months. After that
I noticed that I had pains in
the back and groin which I
never had before. I doctored
and doctored for several
months but as the pains in
creased instead of growing
better I decided that I was not having the
right treatment. Reading in the papers
of the wonderful cures performed by
'Wine of Cardui I wrote to one of the
parties and received a very satisfactory
reply and I immediately sent for some.
In a very short time I felt generally better
and after seven weeks faithful use I was
once more well and strong. I have never
had a sick hour since and I daily bless
