ON PANAMA QUESTION
Hoar and Gorman Op
pose Foraker and
Washington. Dee. IS. The senate
was the scene of a most inicrtaut de
liate on the isthmian canal question
as affected by the president's recog
nition of the independence of the re
public of Panama. Tlie discussion be
gan with a speee'h ly Hoar on his
resolution of inquiry. Hoar continent
his remarks to his resolution, and they
were carefully written out and read
from manuscript. He criticised in

What Hoar Wants to Know.
lie said no man in the country de
sired more eagerly than himself to
support the administration and act
with his party associates. Ho also
was favorable to the isthmian canal
and was desirous that the present pres
ident of the United States should build
the great waterway. Hut he was even
more anxious that the canal should Ik1
built "without taint or suspicion of
national dishonor." "What we want
to know." lie said, "did this irovern
ment. knowing that a revolution was
about to take place, so arrange mat
ters that the revolution, whether peace
able or otherwise, should be permitted
to go on without interruption, and
whether our national authorities took
measures to prevent Colombia from
Plead for All the Fart.
Hoar said it was no justification of
our course to say Colombia had failed
to ratify the treaty for the construc
tion of the Panama canal. Had the
United States itself not failed to- ratify
many treaties? In conclusion he plead
ed for nil the facts and asked that
they be- sent to the senate through the
usual official channels. "We are en
titled to know the whole story," he
said, "before "taking action on the
canal treaty, and we are entitled to
know it officially, not through some In
dividual senator, who may color it with
his own views, or through the unof
ficial utterances of the representatives
of some other government."

Corpian took the floor as soon as
Hoar- had concluded, and there was
from the start evident interest in what
he might say. II said that Domocij.t
ic senators generally are as favorable
to the construction of the canal sis
are Republicans. He congratulated
the country on the possession of a sen
ator like Hoar. He next referred to

Milwaukee, Dee. 1. The story of

habitants of the little town of May

Washington, Dee. IS. Chicago's de

bor committee, but among the repre

might be possible to better naviga

the lake instead of lowering the
crowns of the tunnels in the Chicago
river. It is entirely unlikely that any

tne extension of the executive influ
ence, saying that this influence had
been erfended until "the senate had
become practically the agent of the
executive." He criticised the selec
tion by the president of commissioners
from the senate to negotiate treaties
as a reprehensible- practice, and de
clared that the Associated Press se
cured its suggestions as to informa
tion about events from the adminis
tration. He also erlticised executive interfer
ence in state politics, saying: "The
president with doubtful propriety tele
graphs his instructions to state con
ventions as to their a-tions." Put
none of these transgressions could le
compared, he declared, to the action
of the executive in connection with
the affair in Panama. "It is." he said,
"the most flagrant act ot transgression
that has ever taken place in the his
tory of the country, and it should be
resisted without regard to party.'
Spooner. who was sitting just across
the center aisle of the senate chamber,
on tJie other side of which Herman
stoofl. suggested that a two-thirds vote
would be necessary to ratify the treaty,
to which Herman assented, and then
proceeded to criticise the speech made
by Assistant Secretary Loom is- lefore
the Quill club in New York a few
nights ago. lie referred to the fact
that the Panama treaty was at thrt
time a secret document so far as of
ficial action was concerned.
Heretofore treaties similarly situ
ated had been regarded as sac-red by
executive officials, and he did not 1k
lieve that any secretary or assistant
secretary should of his own motion'
or at the suggestion of "higher au
thority" violate this secrecy until the
injunction of secrecy should In re
moved by the senate itself.
MENTION'S LOOM IS BY NAME

lie had not so far mentioned Loom
Is by name, but he did at this point,
and said Loomis had discussed the
Panama situation at a banquet at
which perhaps many were excited by
wine, and had "given information
which the senate had not had from the
administration or from any other
sourc e. He did not tell the c ountry all
the facts, but he made the broad asser
tion that the president was a bold and
great man. who had the courage and
the patriotism to land marines and
seize a part of the territory of the re
public of Colombia, which we were
under contract, to guarantee to that
country. This, in the light of the facts
before us, is nothing less than usurpa
tion." (iorman then discussed the president
as a "second Napoleon." which title
had. he said, been assigned hi in by
some. "A second Napoleon, indeed."
he exclaimed. "Had it come to this
that the United States must have a
Napoleon to shape its destinies and to

Dealing with Home Pope
Much J ratified.
Rome. Dec IS. Pull particulars
concerning the agreement reached he--tween
Oovernor Tal't and the friars
providing for the settlement of the
friar la ml question in the Philippines
have not yet been received by . the
Vatican authorities, only a mere an
nouncement that such an agreement
had been reached having been cabled
from Manila. When the news was
brought to the pope he seemed highly
delighted and exclaimed: "It is the
best Christinas box I could have had."
The news was received with equal
pleasure iu all Vatican circles.
View of alllli Koe-lesiastic.
One of the highest personages of
th Vatican court, in conversation
with the AsscN-iated Press representa
tive, crysiau.eii inis icenng in me ioi
lowing words: "The news from the
Philippines has produced a feeling of
general satisfaction, not only among
the ecclesiastics but among all those
who have interested themselves in the-
settlement of this most serious and
difficult question. The fact that an
agreement has been reached is consid
ered a new demonstration of the loyal
and lofty manner with which the
Washington government deals with af
fairs respecting the rights of the Caih-
olie church. The question- as to wheth
er t lie Franciscans. Dominicans. Au
gustinians and Recollects shall remain
in the archipelago now rests entirely
with the holy see. which by its laws
and traditions is compelled to help in
safe-guarding the rights of the people
;.ss well as those of the ecclesiastic or
ders." ftuidi and Taft Commended.
In all quarters Governor Taft and
Archbishop (Juidi are being warmly
congratulated on their success in solv
ing the most intricate of the questions
entrusted to their diplomacy. It is
dec-tared that both have displayed the
utmost fac t and equanimity. The ex
cellent impression produced by Cov-c-rnor
Taft during his sojourn in "Rome
in the spring of 10O2 has now been
greatly increased at the Vatican, the
authorities of which expect that his
presence in Washington as secretary
of war will greatly help the settlement
of the remaining questions in the
clined to protect the best interests or
the country its honor could be saved.
He agreed, he said, that the canal
must be built, but In the light of all
the facts at present known it was
even more important that the Integrity
of the American ieople should be pre
served. "Won't the senator go a , step far
ther." asked Aldrich. "and state wheth

Gorman I say to the senator from
Rhode Island that if the case stands
as it is now. with only the informa
tion the administration has furnished
us to this hour, then we consider it a
most objectionable transaction." He
then criticised the president for not
going to Nicaragua when Colombia re
jeeted the treaty, and then coming
back to Aldrich's inquiry, said: "Open
your looks and give us the informa
tion. If you fail to do it in this case:
if the president will give us no fur
