1-"" Martinez Silva. who went to Mexico to at-
J er.d the Congress of 'American Republics, has
decided to return to Washington at once. A
dispatch received at the Colombian legation to
day says he left Mexico City this mornins. Some
*isniricance is attached to his leaving the con

isthmus, saying:

This agrees with Captain Perrj advices to
»he Navy Department this morning, although
the latter indicate that General; Alban has
Pushed forward to Gatun. only a few miles die-
J*at from Colon. The Colombian authorities
nave been anxious to have Captain Perry's au
lAontj exactly defined, so that such military
measures as he may adopt may not lead to dip
lomatic complications. With this end in view,
it is understood that to Consul General Gudger
at Panama will be given considerable latitude in
determining questions which involve both mili
tary and diplomatic phases.
The tv turn of Minister Silva to Washington
may bring here General Reyes, who has be<*n
urged to assume ihe Presidency of Colombia.

Chicago. Nov. 21. — Announcement w.is made to
day by Thomas A. Moran. attorney for tlx- K^v.
Archbishop Feehan, that the sentence of excom
munication which was pronounce.! against Father
Jeremiah J. Crowley would be recalled within a
few -lays. This is expected to put an end to the
case against the deposed priest, and the injunction
proceedings begun against him to prevent his wor
ship in thf Cathedral of the Holy Name will be
withdrawn. Attorney Moiun said:
Some days aso Father Crowley addressed araa
munlcatlon to His Bsatnence Cardinal MartineUt
This led to .i farther consideration of the m.itt.-r
by the Cardinal, with the result that Father crow
ley again addressed his eminence as follows:
■Your Eminence: To save the honor of our be
loved church and to repair the .scandal I may have
tiven to our faithful Catholic people, i sincerely re
pr.-t whatever I may have said disrespectful to
your eminence and to the Most Rev. Archbishop
of Chicago, and I also retract anything I may have
either said or written which could not be approved
by the Catholic < 'hurrh.'
The Cardinal thereupon further advised with the
Archbishop, and as soon as the details are at
tended to, which, will be within a few days, the
sentence of excommunication which was pro
nounced aeainst Father Crowley wlil be recalled

London. Nov. 'JB, 1 a. m.— The Buller incident
continues to excite more interest than the war
itself, even when Lord Kitchener is enabled to
report the capture of a commandant and two
field cornets and to claim a decisive success in
breaking up one of the most troublesome of the
commandoes. The War Office is credited with
a determination to forestall Saturday's demon
stration by General Bailers Devonian friends
by bringing out the full text of the "spatch
cocked" message. There are rumors that the I'ol
vile. Oataere. Warren and other cases will lie
included in an omnibus delivery of correspond
ence relating to various military events, so
that General Buller may not be singled «>ut f<">r
exceptional treatment. If the latter reports
are well grounded, the compilation will involve
much time, and Saturday's Bullt demonstra
tion will not be anticipated. There may be no
precedents for the publication of confidential
dispatches relating to the war. hut it is difficult
to perceive whai ground the War Office could
have for refusing a request from General Bolter
for permission to make use of the authorized
text in self-defence. Military veterans ar<
sreatly concerned over the prospect of haying

In passing sentence Justice Herrick said:
