PANAMA. Sept. 8 ?In an interview|
tod a y Richard (j Marsh, charge d al

lie compelled to occupy or annex the

Mr Marsh's staement was made
a consequence of the evident int>

majority in the assembly, to elect as
the next vice-president to till the
ex pared term of the late President |
Ohahli, aa independent ei'izen. Yes?
terday the assembly was occupied |
with a very heated discussion of
matter. Public opinion appears to dis
approve the attitude of the legislativ?
Mr. Marsh made this statement:
"If. in view of all that the American!
government has done for Panama and|
Its great Interests, present and future,
on the isthmus, the Panama ansemtii> ]
and grvernmetit should persistent l>
refuse to accede to the dear wishes]
of the Ameiican government, that gov.
prnment can only adop' sin I means tol
prevent such opposition in the future
as occupation ami annexation"
