Boston Hears That Davie Has Been in Colorado, Not Mexico. I By Telegraph to The Tribune.] Boston, Dec 23.— Word was received in Boston to-night that Robert Emerson Davie, the alleged absconding boy broker ■who' left creditors to mourn the loss of investments* estimated to amount to half a million dollars, had been heard from in Colorado, and would return to his home in Boston in a short time. It was declared that Davie did not go to Mexico at all.- but went first to Chi cago from Boston and then to his uncle's ranch in a small town thirteen miles from Denver. There, it is said, he sent to another uncle in Mexico a letter which included ■ separate one, which was mailed by the uncle to a friend in Bos ton. In this manner it was generally believed Davie was in Mexico. Davie' s mother declared to-night that she. knew nothing: whatever about the report that her son was coming back. He is wanted by the police of. Boston. The first movement against him was by the wife of a Somerville evangelist, who alleged that she had been swindled out of more than $10,000 by him. Bankruptcy proceedings have already been started against him, and there are other legal entanglements he must face. COASTERS BADLY INJURED 1 Frightened Horse Kicks Three Boys at Schenectady.

ALIENS* RIGHT IN PANAMA ' Government "Would Regret Acquisition of Timber Lands by Foreigners. Washington. Dec. 23.— 1n answer to an inquiry by the Stcte Department as to the exact effect of recent legislation in Panama regarding foreign ownership of lands in the republic, it is learned that the decree simply removes a prohibition on the. hold ing of lands by aliens whose governments do not permit Pan--*iiians to hold lands in ■ their countries. As many American states prohibit alien landlordship, Americans un der the old law would be unable to secure title to lands in Panama. This situation is met by the new legislation . There is no information at the State De partment to indicate, the existence of a plan for the wholesale acquisition of land in Panama by foreigners. The depart ment, however, has let it be known to the government of Pinama that it would view with regret any wholesale and inconsider ate disposal of the timber lands in the re public to foreign syndicates. The objec tion is based on sound public policy, hav ing regard not only for the best interests of Panama but of possible serious injury to. the Panama Canal from deforestation.

VOTE BUYING IN OHIO Over Six Hundred Indictments — Fifty- Cent Bribe Charged. [By Telegraph to The Tribune ] "West Union, Ohio. Dec. 33 —One hundred additional indictments, charging citizens of Adams County with bribery In connection with the recent election, were returned by the special grand jury late to-day, bringing the total of indictments for the day up to 272, and the grand total of indictments re turned this week -up to 633. -.. :-.

BOLD ROBBERY AT STATION Thief Gets 1 1 3 After Holding Up Ticket Agent at Highland. Poughkeepsle. N. T., Dec. 23.— Walter S. Darbee. one' of three-" ticket agents who work in eight-hour shifts " in the West Shore station at Highland, across the Hud son from this city, went into the waiting room at 4 o'clock this morning to feed the fire in a stove.

NO TARIFF WAR LIKELY Continued from tint page- the German law is in effect retroactive— a kind <>f legislation repugnant U> Amer ican Ideas. But in connection with this it must be borne in mind that such laws are not repugnant to Europeans, nor is the validity of a contract so sacred to them a? it is to Americans, as witness the action of Great Britain in calmly setting aside tenancy contracts in Ire land because, in the judgment of Parlia ment, such contracts inflicted undue hardship on the Irish tenants, and there fore on Ireland as a whole. One more detail deserves attention. Mr. Bradley has been urged to go before the authorities in Berlin to protest against the law h an injustice to him. This he has refused to do. because he maintains that the clause in his con tract whereby he appears to be liable for any export tax imposed is inoperative, and he believes that to go to Berlin to protest against the law would in effect be an admission that he is liable for such tax. These, then, are the facts which con front the Department of State in it? efforts to secure fair play for the Amer ican importers— facts ■which preclude the oft made statement that "Germany is showing undue discrimination against American importers, and the only re course, of the United States i? to impose the maximum tariff on imports from Germany." It is. as must be seen, a complex question, one to which there are many sides, and the course of the ad miniFtration Is not a simple one. by any means. Retaliation a Serious Step. To cause a tariff war with a country with -which the United States enjoys a trade of $400.000. 000 would, in any evertt. be a serious step. To do so in retalia tion for a law which at most affects a trade amounting to not more than J?.O»WO00 would be even more so. And to take such a step in retaliation for a law which could not bs proved to be an undue discrimination would be an in excusable error. It is because of the complexity of the problem, and because of the further fact that the Secretary of State cannot rid himself of the idea that newspaper dis cussion i£ inimical to successful diplo matic negotiations, that the Department of State "is preserving an unbroken si lence en this subject And it is. perhaps, because of that rigid silence that much biassed information has found its way into the public prints and has tended to form an unwarranted public sentiment which may prove embarrassing to the administration if it finally determines that the circumstances do not warrant the imposition of the maximum tariff. In view of the determined silenc* of the Department of State, only limited in formation may be given here regarding its plan? It has been its policy to per mit those chiefly interested to exhaust every effort to effect a solution of the difficulty before resort was had to nego tiations" through diplomatic channels. Those interested have failed completely, and now diplomatic negotiations have been undertaken. So much may be ?aid on the highest authority. As to the outcome of the negotiations now undertaken at Berlin by Dr. Hill, the American Ambassador, no predic tions can be made with any authority, although reasonably intelligent specula tion may be indulged in. If frermany. in a spirit of conciliation, should consent so to revise her law aa to permit all American importers to pro cure their potash at the price which ob tained prior to the dissolution of the syndicate on June 30, 1909-namely, $32 a* ton at the dock in New York-would the administration be Justified In ,caus-_ | in» a tariff war? Such an adjustment of ! the difficulty would, of course, deprive ! Mr. Bradley of the benefits he hoped to derive from the contracts he "so shrewdly, executed between midnight on that date and 9 o'clock' on the following morning, when a new syndicate was formed; But would the loss to him be a sufficient warrant for a tariff war? - As for the other importers, they have no actua 1 right to demand V lower price. than $33.. •because the only purpose of 'the. clauses in their contracts was to protect them from undue competition, which could not exist were Mr. Bradley compelled to pay the same price as themselves. Even suppose that- Germany should refuse ■to I make any concession,- but should insist that the: clause m the Bradley contracts making him liable for any export duty which might be imposed was valid/could the question be tested anywhere but in the German court*. It is certain : that, were the ' conditions re versed, this country- would not recognize the right of German importers to test the validity of a contract they had made in this country with Mr. Bradley any where but in the courts of the United St fnd finally, however Just or unjust the administration may feel tht .opera tion of the German law to be. has th country the right to impose -^«J «**£ mum tariff in retaliation, for anything but undue discrimination against Ameri cans, as compared with the citizens of other nations, and can such discrimina tions be established as a result of Ger many's course? To the importers of potash the action of' Germany appears wholly unjust as it does to the few great concerns which use potash in the manufacture of com mercial fertilizer?. . And those directly interested can be relied on to exert ample pressure on the administration, both directly and through their repre sentatives in the two houses of Con gress. But this is & broad and. far reaching question. Many interests are involved— a fact keenly appreciated by the administration. ''; which /feels that it would be derelict in its obligations to do justice to all trie people and by all in terests were it to be influenced Jo take any action not wholly warranted by all the facts and all the interests to be con served and protected.' Of the action of the Department of State just one prediction may be made with authority. This is that it will leave unmade no effort to secure the largest measure of justice to all Americans who may be directly or indirectly affected by Germany's action or the possible re taliation of the United States.

"Republicans Interested." . I. said in my \ former statement regard i ing thin matter that if Mr. Smith should be sent to the United Stat«« Senate he ' would" not go as the representative or 1 the people. I meant that he would go ias the representative of particular in terests in the state, with which it ia I well known he has always been identi fied It is significant that his candidacy is supported by ■' the Camden paper known to be owned or controlled by David Baird. John W. Griggs. in a letter recently published, has condemned me for taking any part in this matter, i and has thereby confirmed the impres sion that he also has .clients who are interested in being represented in the Senate by Mr Smith. So far. as the voters of the state are concerned and the state's essential interests, there is no reascn why. a change should be made from > John Kean to James Smith, jr. They are believed to stand for the same influence and to represent the same group of selfish interests.. It should be a matter of Indifference to both Repub licans and' Democrats which of the two represents the state at Washington. The Governor-elect goes m to say that "the people must now speak their minds in unmistakable terms to those whom they have chosen to represent them. It must now be determined whether the present members of the Legislature are representatives of the : people or puppets of a bi-partisan ma chine. ' -. :f :- z "I believe in organization," the Gov ernor-elect continues.' "I deiire to co 1 operate with Democrats of evejy affilia tion in carrying the party forward by union and harmony of action toward Ota great sen-ice which it can render the country, if it will but be true to its [ principles. But when organization is used for the elevation and benefit of in dividuals who do not represent the peo ple, whose interests are opposed to those of the people, I must resist it by •*•-.■ means at my disposal."' Owe Duty to "Farmer Orator." Continuing. Mr. Wilson says: Over against all this selfish effort to use a machine, over against all this sinister pressure to put a man into the United States Senate who. by. common consent will not represent the people, stands the candidacy of Mr. Martine, supported by the votes of a very large majority of the Democrats who chose to express their preference at the prima ries It is my earnest and deliberate judgment that it is the duty of the Democratic members of the Legislature to ratify that expression, of preference by electing Mr. Martine a. member of the Senate. The last time a Senator from HUM Jertey as chosen the party caucus for mally indorsed Mr. Martin* as its an didate. Three years ago Mr Smith pro nosed Mr. Martine for the Governorship. Throughout the Union the Democratic party has turned with greater and greater enthusiasm to the practice of following the preference of the people expressed at the primaries in the choice of Senators. The Democratic party in New Jersey has again and again in dorsed the principle and favored the practice. It cannot turn from its duty in this instance without completely dis- \ crediting itself and all its professions of i faith in this popular and admirable re .Mrl Martine is a man of sterling char- j acter, of fine fidelity to his party and to i its principles, and is considered by those i who know him best to be undoubtedly qualified to serve the state well and hon« ' All ladies of ' DISCRIMINATION prefer our Chocolates, Boibtit and Candies.
