Minister Beaupre's Life Was
HAD BEEN THREATENED
NO ACTUAL STEPS TAKEN TO
RAISE AN ARMT.
If Gen. Reyes' Mission is Unsatisfac
tory Colombia May Wag*
A cablegram from Colon last night says:
Luis Deroux, who was a member of the
Colombian house of representatives from
Panama, who made a speech In the house
October 2 warning Colombia to sl^n the
Hay-Herran canal treaty Immediately or
she would lose the Isthmus the day con
gress closed, and who was Instrumental In
bringing about the appointment of Gen.
Obaldia as governor of Panama, has ar
rived here from Bogota, whence he started
Senor Deroux la a Panaman, and owing
to his well-known political connections he
was subjected to annoyances and affronts
at Bogota and on the Magdalena river,'
i where, at one place on the passage down, a
I number of Colombians threatened to board
? the steamer and molest him.
Trouble was averted by the captain cut
ting the vessel's moorings and dropping
down stream. At Bogota efTorts were made
to persuade Senor Deroux to Join-the Reyes
commission to the isthmus, but Deroux ab
Legation Under Heavy Guard.
When Deroux left Bogota the United
States legation was guarded continually by
fifty soldiers armed with rifles. Minister
Beau pre mentioned that possibly he would
come down the river, but apparently he
has not decided to do so.
A governmental consulting committee has
been formed at Bogota. It is composed of
liberals, conservatives and nationalists. Ac
cording to good authority, afone meeting
of the committee the statement was heat
edly made that Mr. Beaupre must be kill
ed. whether the United States destroyed
Cartliagena or not In retalliation. Wiser
councils, however, prevailed.
Bogota and the entire country is waiting
to hear from Geu. Reyes, whose grant ot
full presidential powers has been confirmed.
While there is still much talk in Colombia
of raising a big army, no actual steps in
that direction have yet been taken.
Public contributions are being made and
decrees are occasionally Issued, referring
to warlike preparations, but no real action
has been taken.
Has Munitions of War.
Colombia possesses a great number of
good rifles, some artillery and an ample
supply of ammunition.
Quantities of ammunition have recently
been moved In.ox carts from Honda, sixty
flve miles from Bogota, on the Magdalena
river, to Bogota. Colombia has not lost
the Idea of making an attempt to regain
the isthmus. Sh&still entertains hopes that
Gen. Reyes will succeed in effecting a satis
factory arrangement at Washington.
Failing this, the Colombians, .t Is be
lieved, will undoubtedly advance on the
isthmus, sending troops In small pirties
of two or three hundred along both co.ists.
sufficiently Inland to keep their move
ments secret, and, on arriving on the bor
ders of Panama, they will, it .Is said, beg n
a guerrilla warfare, pillaging and burning.
They may also, it is alleged, attempt to
transport troops by sea In small schooners
and other such craft between unimportant
and little-known ports, hoping to avoid the
American gunboats, and thus helping In the
general movement toward Panama, or
possibly land.ng troops In the Chlriqui dis
Can Reach Panama Overland.
The Colombians think they can carry out
such a movement without the knowledge of
the Americans, and believe their soldiers,
Inured to the hardships of campaigning and
living on the country without a commis
sariat, can reach the borders of Panama
Colombia can move troops w.thout
money, because she can send them Into the
field without a hospital corps, without a
commissary department, without means of
transportation and without pay.
Notwithstanding the Colombian govern
ment's assurances, all the political p.irties
have not fully and unselfishly rallied to the
support of the government In this crisis.
The internal political dissensions are slowly
growing more marked. The liberal revolu
tionary element particularly Is showing
signs of Increasing discontent throughout
the entire country, and a recurrence of the
recent revolt at any time with n the next
year would not surprise those who are
fam.liar with Colombian affairs. On the
contrary, It Is fully expected.
Cartagena is Quiet.
An American traveling salesman, who
spent the last month In Cartagena, has ar
rived here. He reports that Cartagena Is
quiet, with the exception of ah occasional
outbreak of popular excitement against
the United States. But nothing serious has
occurred there. The American consul at
that place has not been molested. There
are only two or three Americans in Carta
gena, and they are all long-time residents,
well known and liked- There is no fear of
them being Interfered with. The traveler
confirms the Associated Press' previous dis
patches regarding the attempt of the
American consul at Cartagena to board the
Trent and the Interference of the police.
The Colombian gunboats Cartagena. Gen
eral Pinzen and Presidente Marroquin are
CENTRAL ELECTRIC STATIONS.
Bulletin Just Issued by the Census |
The census bureau has Issued a bulletin
on central electric light and power sta
tions In the United States for the year
ending June 30, 1902.
These statistics have been prepared in ac
cordance with the provisions of section T
of tfie act of Congress of March 6, 1802.
At the time of the enumeration there
were 3,?>20 central electric stations In opera
tion. The cost of their construction and
equipment .amounted to $304,740,352. The
gross Income for the year was reported at
$85,700,6(6, and the total expenses at $t!8,
081,375. These stations furnished employ
ment to 23,330 wage-earners, who received
$14,983,112 as wages during the year.
The power plant equipment consisted of
5,930 steam engines, with 1,370,941 indicated

a stated horsepower of 438,472. The gen
erating plants consisted of 12,484 dynamos
of every description, with a stated horse

BURIAL OF THIRTY-FIVE SOL
DIERS IN ARLINGTON CEMETERY.
Brought Back From Philippines on
of the Dead.
The bodies of tliirty-flve men who lost
their lives with the army in the Philippines
from wounds or disease were interred at
Arlington this morning with military hon
ors. The cold weather prevented many
persons from attending: the services, hut
those who assembled in small groups about
the two sections of the cemetery where
the graves had been dug were deeply Im
pressed with the meaning and solemnity of
the ceremonies. The bodies interred today
were among those brought over In the
transport Sumner, which recently arrived
in New York, and were Incased In the
heavy boxes in which they had been
shipped. They were burled in different
sections of the cemetery, part being In
terred near the spot where rest the victims
of the Maine disaster and others near the
monument to the fallen soldiers of the
Spanish war, in what is known as the
Spanish war section of the cemetery. Two
separate services were held?the first at
the graves near those of the Maine victims,
where the larger number of the bodies were
buried, and the second at the other place
The services were under the charge of
Chaplain Chas. C. Pierce. Artillery Corps.U.
S. A., and Father Dolan of St. Patrick's
Church, the former being directly in charge
of all the arrangements. The ceremonies
were military In every sense of the word,
a platoon of cavalrymen from Troop H of
the 2d Cavalry, commanded by First Lieut.
Walter F. Martin, and the 2d Cavalry
Band being in attendance. The heavy
chests containing the bodies were placed
over the graves and were draped with
The Last Ritas.
A tent was set up near the middle of the
first line of graves, and here The first serv
ices were held. The band played a selec
tion and the service for the dead of the
Catholic Church was read by Father Dolan.
The troops stood at "parade rest" during
the reading of the service at the side of
the line of graves. After another selec
tion by the band the Episcopal service for
the dead was read by Chaplain Pierce.
At the conclusion of this service the
troops were brought to attention and three
volleys were fired over the graves. After
"taps" had been sounded by the trumpeter,
the troops and spectators, with the priests,
walked over to the other section and the
ceremony was repeated.
The services were all simple and without
ostentatious ceremony. When the last note
of taps had been sounded a force of the
employes of the cemetery lowered the bod
ies and the graves were filled Immediately.
The force was large enough to complete
the filling of all the graves In a very short
time, so there will be no danger of any in
Jury to the boxes or the bodies from the
List of the Dead Soldiers.
