I GGMSTIPATION
N[; PANAMA ANNEXATION
!i Would Dishonor Americans.
President Taft Declares.
INSPECTS CULEBRA CUT
Enters Panaman Territon/ *»
Dine with President
Arosemena.
Panama. Nov. 16.— President Taft to—
right effectually silenced rumors that the
United States micrht annex Panama. At
a dinner given in his honor by President
Arosemena, and attended by two hundred
prominent officials, diplomats and mer
chants, Mr. Taft anniWii the greatest en
thusiasm when he declared tliat the Amer
ican people would feel utterly dishonored
by annexinc Panama unless some con
dttct on the part of th*> Panamans loft no
other course open.
This contingency Hi Tmti said he was
sure would n<=v<-r arise.
In the Culebra Cut.
The President arrived in Panama at 6.30
o'clock this evening from Cuiebra, aftei
sending an Interesting day in the great
cut where he was surrounded with giant
shovels, puffing drills and hurrying dirt
trains, while occasional distant blasts sent
up tor of rock. The recent landslides
were visible, but they were not disturbing
to the President or Lieutenant Colonel
Goethals, th<=- latter saying that care
would be taken of them as they occurred,
until the degr*»° ot wall slope prevented a
recurrence.
Th» President this afternoon reviewed
the marines at Camp Elliott, later hearing
grievance committees of workmen, who
asked for an increase in pay. This, how
ever, i? not likely to be granted, in view
of the fact that the wages of the men are
already higher and the cost of living is
much lower than in the United States.
Immediately after his arrival in Panama
the President proceeded to the American
Legation, where President Arosemena
called on him. Mr. Taft returned the call
at the palace and then went to the dinner.
After .•• address of cordial welcome by
President Arosemena, Mr. Taft said:
President Arosemena and my friends of.
Panama, I am glad to accept your hospi
tality. As onoe in the case of Mexico, so
now in the case of Panama. I venture to
violate the customary limitation upon the
movements of the President of the United
States by leaving the soil of my own coun
try to come beneath the flag and protection
ot a friendly neighbor.
The birth of the republic of Panama and
the peculiar interest which th- United
States has had since that birth in Panama's
welfare and prosperity have found a com
mon cause in the construction of the
Panama Canal. The treaty between the
two countries makes the United States the
guarantor of the integrity of the Panirmai
Republic and therefore in a ----- -■ the
guardian of the liberties of her people se
cured by it? .... Our responsi
bility, therefore, for your government re
quires us closeiy to observe the course of
conduct by those selected as the officials
of your government after they axe select
ed, and to insist that they be selected ac
cording to law.
All this makes us especially interested m
what is done by your government, but this
relation neither calls for nor Hermits an
nexation. We are her* 1 to construct, main
tain, operate and defend the world canal
which runs vhrouph the heart of your coun
try, and you have given us the necessary
sovereignty and jurisdiction over that part
of your country occupied by the canal to
enable us to do this effectively.
W« do not wish any further responsibility
in respect to your government than Is
| ne ( v»fsary in the enrryin?: out of our pur-
I pope to construct and maintain this canal.
! 'We have no desire to add to th^ territory
! under o;ir jurisdiction except as the opera-
I tiot: of the~i\anal may require it.
We have quarant^Hi your integrity as a
j republic, and for us to annex your terri
! tcry would bp to violate that guarantee.
I and nothing would justify it on our part so
! ]ons as Panama performed h<»r ■-• under
! th*" treaty.
Makes Statement Emphatic.
1 ". jth ?o make this teraeE as em
phatic a? possible!! because Irresponsible
persons, without tftp sli?hf<*st foundation In
fad. have started a rumor that my visit
to The isthmus -is for th'_ purpose of pm
rr.otin? annexation. wher nothing could be
further from the tr:;th. Panama cannot be
too prosperous, too healthy, too strong a
gOTermnent for tae United Ftatos. and I
know I PT."?ak the unanimous voice of th c
people of the United States -when I say
thai they would be most reluctant to have
to take over th» responsibilities of govern
ment beyond th« Canal one and would
feel utterly dishonored in so doing unless
there was some conduct on the part of the
Panamas people which left them no other
possible course.
T am glad to say that there is not the
slightest indication or probability that the
Pahaman pKsole will ever pursue a policy
Triiieh would rccuire such a tang in the
present most ?atisfactorr.- relations between
the two republics.
Mr. Taft Is obtaining much Information
■^hich ■will help him to deal with th- prob
lems Involved In the construction, mainten
ance and control of •..• canal. Officials
here ar<; urging him to recommend to Con
gress a single-headed government for the
zone and full and permanent government
control of th« waterway airi the supply
depots.
The Vr<3E:dent has been surprised to learn
that the zone tvas not Included in the op
erations of the postal bank law, and thru
i — of the •worknitn believed Wai] Street
Influences haJ robbed them of the ber.ent
of this legislation. Mr Taft will probably
recommend that provision be mads for the
establishment of postal banks in the zon?,
where they ar" much desired to care for the
larc«» deposits of Ffiiari^s and ' BW
Havana. Nor IS.-G'nTa! Hani el Fan

i for G::anUinaaio for the purpose of paying
I a vi<=lt of courtesy to President Taft on his
arrival at the naval station.

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. THURSDAY. NOVEMBER IT. 1910.
BANKER IS ARRESTED

>?<-• hesitated a minute, seeing the de
tectives; then, recopnizint: Bambey,
started toward him. At this moment
Bambey pave the signal to the de
tectives, and they approached Belling:
and tapped him on the shoulder.
The banker demanded to know what
they wanted. Scbeuing quietly told him
that. he was under arrest on Bambey's
complaint, and asked him to accompany
them to the detective bureau.
Belling, when told the details of the
charge against him. the police allege,
only said. "I cruess I'm In bad." After
being questioned there by the detectives
Belling was hustled into .i waiting auto
mobile and taken to Police Headquar
ters.
The Bronx Detective Bureau explained
the alleged forgery in detail last night
It was said the. certificate of stock was
Xo. 469. and was of last year's issue.
Because of this, it bore the genuine sis
nature of Reinhardt, who re-signed from
the bank in January. The name of
Kolbe had been cleverly forged, accord
ing to the police.
Belling has been connected with The
Bronx National Bank for two and a
half years, and came there excellently
recommended. He is thirty-seven years
old and is married.
When the new? of the arrest was tele
phoned to Frederick A. "Wurzbaeh. presi
dent of the bank, he hurried down to the
detective bureau. After being closeted
■with the detectives for half an hour, Mr.
Wurzbach said:
Employers Won't Prosecute.
"Mr. Selling's art does not in any way
affect the institution, because national
hanks are not allowed to loan or re
money on their own sto^k. Then,
ajrain. Belling, as vice-president, was
only taking in accounts, and had abso
lut«-.y no access to the securities, cash
or collateral of the bank. The bank will
not prosecute him, as his act has not af
fected the institution. The person or
person? who are to prosecute him will
be those who are alleged to have been
the losers by th*» act."
Mr. "vTurzbaeh showed more than a
dozen recommendations of Belling from
different banks where he had 'been em
ployed, stating that he was an ablo and
capable official and of the highest in-
Ity
accused bank official was appar
ently a man of quiet tastes, and w-as
well thought of in the office where he
worked. He is of medium height, with
dark brown hair and a closely trimmed
Van Dyke beard. He lived at No. -
West !?2c street, but when efforts were
made last nichT to find his wife at that
address the hallboy sent word that no

CHOLERA TAKES TWO AT SEA
Disease Visited Italian Liner
Held at Quarantine.
The Italian liner San Giorgio, which ar
rived yesterday from Naples and Palermo
with twenty-two cabin and 629 steerage pas
sengers, will be held in Quarantine for five
days. A woman and a child died on the
way from Palermo and were buried at sea.
The ship's surpeon paid acute gastro en
teritis was th© cause of death, and from
the history of the cases Dr. Doty, the
health officer, became convinced that the
disease was cholera. He detained the
steamship and removed all the steerage
passenpers to Hoffman Island for observa
tion.
The San Giorgio left Palermo on Novem
ber 2. and on November " a woman and
her two children hecame 111. One of the
children crew suddenly worse on Novem
ber 11 and died within twenty-four hours.
The mother died yesterday morning and
was buried at set within a few miles of
Sandy Hook. The other child was taken to
Swinburne yesterday, and a preliminary
bacteriological examination confirmed the
suspicions of the health officer that the
deaths were caused by cholera.
"There is no danger from cholera at this
port," said Dr. Doty yesterday. "It is sim
ply routine. When cholera comes here we
isolate it, and detain those exposed to it
until all danger of further contagion is
passed. I shall fumigate the San Giorgio
to-morrow and will confer with the own-
ers of the vessel about the detention of the
crew. They will be held in quarantine for
five day;, either on the <=t. ? amshlp or on
Hoffman Island."

MOON'S ECLIPSE ECLIPSED
Clouds Obscure Her — Columbia's
Lens Couldn't Find Satellite.
Old Lady Moon had '">n o of her periodical
fits of shyness last night, and hid h*r face
from view, she need not havo troubled to
dn it. so far as New York was concerned
for the clouds had obscured the sieht of b-^r
anyhow, and from the time Mother Earn
rut her off from the light of the sun at S :44
p. m. until she emerged into full light again
Xl '• 56 p. m. not a sight could be obtained
of the errati.- satellite.
Harold Jacoby, Rutherford professor «f
astronomy at Columbia University, with a J
group of his students gatheral at the little j
observatory in the university grounds at j
Broadway and 120 th street. The building j
is small nnd the telescope on top of it is ■
only six inches across, but it is the best that i
New York has in it"! vicinity. It was too
small and too weak for any good work last
nipht, and Prof. Jacoby expressed the hope
that some day some of the millionaires who
wish to benefit science will ouild and endow j
an observatory somewhere near the city,
yet far enough to «scape the smoke pall.
"I believe the eclipse took place on sched
ule time," he remarked last night, "but we
will have to depend on those more favorably :
situated than we are to describe its parti--
ular phenomena."

acted as a special United States attorney ;
general against the packers in ÜBB.
The answer admits that Judge Landis
was appointed special assistant to the at
torney of the United States to Investigate
an alleged beef combination in Chicago, !
but denies that he was directed in any i
way to investigate the so-called trust with
reference to the particular defendants in
this case.
The Investigation at that time, accord- !
ing to the answer, was for the purpose of
obtaining information concerning the ac- 1
ceptance of rebates from interstate car
riers by the packing firms here, and it !s
asserted that Judge Landis'e compensation
was paid out of a special fund controlled
by the Interstate Commerce Commission.
Arguments wiil be heard by Judge Landis
to-morrow morning.

THERE could hardly be a more charmingly un
1 conventional gift than one of these recently
imported water colors from Japan.
Yet. like hundreds of similarly pleasing things we're con
stantly receiving from the Orient, they're far from costly—
1 .00 upward for the framed subjects. 50 cents upward
for the unframed.
A large assortment of Framed Water Colors of landscapes
and figures are shown in the New Art Gallery.
