dence In support of a motion for a charge
of venue. Judge Krum answered that he be
lieved It could he done this morning. He
stated that a large number of newspapers
will be introduced to show that there Is a
prejudice against Bench. Circuit Attorney
Polk said he would require not more than
an hour to answer the defense.
"I do sot expect that a change of venue
trill be granted to Bersch." said the Circuit
Attorney. "It is different from the Butler
case. Butler Is known to many persons,
while comparatively few know Bersch. Of
Course there is a prejudice against Doodling,
-but that is not sufficient. They also will
have to show that the court Is prejullced."
Judge Ryan said he would take the mat
ter cp this morning and clsmusscd the spe
cial jurors until this afternoon at 2 o'clock.
Sixteen other persons are Jointly charged
with perjury in the information against

Ths title of the case as called by the

Schumacher's name was called he stepped
forward from the spectators seats and
took a chair at the '.lawyers' table. I. q.

all witnesses to go to Judge Ryan's court
room on the first floor, thus allowing the

DEFENSE NOT READY FOR TRIAL.
Bersch, with his counesl. Circuit Attorney
Folk, end his assistants, then went to
Judge Ryan's room. Here Attorney Rowe
declared the defense sot ready for trial. He
contended that the ten days since the case
was pat ca the docket by the clerk was sot
sufflcUnt time for the defense to get ready.
Judge Ryan answered that it was nearly
six weeks since the informations were filed,
and said tha defendant and his counsel
should have known that the case would be
called for trial at some time, and believed
that ample time bad been given for prep
arations. Mr. Rowe then stt-ted that he would file
an affidavit for a continuance, and asked
for time to prepare It. It was then 11
o'clock, and Judge Ryan gave him until 2
o'clock to prepare the affidavit. At 2 o'clock
Attorney Howe announced that it had been
decided to file motion for a change of
venua instead -of the affidavit for a con
tinuance. All the defendant1" appeared In court with
out ths least sign that they are worried

Formal announcement was made to-day at
the War Department by Adjutant Oeneral

published statement calling attention to the
fact that General Corbln s name preceded
that of General Young in r the monthly

General Corbln might cuoceed General
Miles. Qcnerttl Corbln said to-day;
"1 think I violate no confidence when I
say that Major General Young will succeed

than I do over the Intention of the Secre

The explanation of General Corbin's posi

Washington. Oct, 27. The long-expected
response of the Colombian Government to
the proposition made by the State Depart
ment for tho negotiation of a canal treaty
on the lines of the Spooner act has rrached
Washington, and was presented to the State
Department to-day by Mr. Herran. secre
tary of the Colombian legation.
It l difficult to learn the exact nature of
thlv communication, but it Is known that It
1 not altogether an unqualified acceptance
of the State Department's propolt!onr. It
Is, however, friendly and dignified in tone,
and does not close tha negotiations by any
means, though it unquesUnoably sets back
the date of final agreement by opening up
new topics for argument.
For one tbing, the Colombian Government
now- is enUrcly dissatisfied with the small
amount of the payment to be made to it by
the United States under the terms of the
protocol which it in propoeed-to use as thq
basis for the treaty. This cum Is I7.W),000.
Colombia wants at least I10.000.to2
Moreover, the original proposal looked to
a wait for fourtren years before beginning

of which was to be then fixed by mutual
agreement. Colombia sow asks the United
