Sept. 18 (Copyright. 1KB) A v representative of The Republic to-day had a conversation with a well-known Lon doner, who has been behind the scenes CHI tj in unusn pontics jor many years pasi, and who said an idea was prevalent that Mr. Chamberlain's resignation is part of a very carefully thought-out scheme. "Austen Chamberlain, "said this author ity, "is going to remain in the Cabinet and the father's voice is bound to be heard through the son. "It is almost certain there will be a general election when the Liberals will come Into power, but the Liberals cannot count ona lops tenure of offlee.

Brennecke and Hutchens had not been on good terras for a number of years. To-night Hutchens was seated at a tabic in the German Village talking to Jerry Crowe, a patrolman. It is said he was abusing Heuke and Brennecke when the two last-named officers entered the tent. Without saying a word to the men he pulled his revolver and opened fire.

According to the officers of the steamships Colon and City of Sydney, the- people of Panama are ripe for secession from Colombia, and un less the Congress of the South American Republic take some early and satisfactory ac tion In the matter of the Panama Canal nothing can prevent a break for independ ence on the part of the people of the Isthmus. When the City of Sydney railed secret meetings were being held throughout Pana ma for tho purpose of discussing ways and means for securing the independence of the Isthmus. The meetings were secret for the reason that open expressions of opin ion are dangerous in that part of the world, where Government spies and military prisons are flourishing institutions. Unless some action toward settling the canal question is taken soon, however, men in position to know say revolution will once more stir tho Republic. The strong est supporters of the Panama Canal are the young business men of the Isthmus, nnd they are said to have a strong enough influence to warrant faith in their ability to bring Colombia to terms by forco of arms.

They are of unique design representing Presi dent Roosevelt and Booker T. Washington enjoying a luncheon together.

The prediction that the markets would not be affected by the Cabinet crisis has been fulfilled, indeed. Consols exhloitej; a firmer tone to-day. All parts of the United Kingdom and the Empire editorial expressions of opinion on the crisis are pouring in. The Government organs frankly admit that Mr. Chamber lain's withdrawal came as a bombshell. The Liberal organs, though announcing the "wreck of the Tory party," which Is described as being "Hamlet without the Prince," nearly all agree in saying that Mr. Chamberlain's resignation does not mean a victory for free trade. "Though the man lias gone," says the Star, "his policy remains. This is Mr. Chamberlain's Elba. He has yet to meet his Waterloo." This is borne out by re ports from Birmingham, where the pow erful organization In favor of preferential tariffs is centered. There, though the resignation of the head and shoulders of the movement came as a great surprise. nouncSTThat 7.lr. ChamberlaWs previous I arrangements for his campaign will all be carried out. FIRST STATEMENT. Writing to-day from his home at High bury. Birmingham, Mr. Chamberlain made his first public statement since his resig nation. His letter is In reply to C. A. Pearson, chairman of the Executive Coun cil of the Tarlff-Refonn League. Mr. Chamberlain gives his understand ing of the position of the Tariff-Reform League under two heads as coinciding with his position. Their objects, he says, "are, first, a closer union to endeavor to make the Empire self-sfficlng as regards its food supply; second, the employment of a tariff as a weapon to secure greater reciprocity with foreign nations; or. fall ing such arrangement, to prevent loss to the home industrial markets under the competition of protected countries by re taliating upon them the treatment they mete out to us."

RECORD IN BUTLER CASE IS ALMOST COMPLETED. Printer nnd Proofreaders Who Have Worked on It Sny It Is Full of Technical Errors. Th Republic Burtau. Hth St. ana Pennsylvania Ae. Washington, Sept. 18. The testimony in the Reynolds-Butler contest has been printed and is now being indexed by Aaron Russell, the chief clerk In the office of Major McDowell, clerk of the House of Representatives. The indexing, which Is a very tedious and difficult task, owing to the manner In which the numerous exhibits were made part of the different depositions, will be finished either Saturday or Monday, and the complete printed record will be In the possesion of the clerk of the House by Wednesday of next week. As soon as the printed record Is re ceived by the clerk of the House, two copies will be forwarded by registered mall to both contestant and contestee, and, at the same time, the contestant will be no tified to forward his brief to the clerk of the House within thirty days from date of notice. This record will be the smallest of any of the three contests for Congressman Butler's seat, containing 1,064 pages, ex clusive of the Index. While the records In the previous cases n ere full of errors, the record In the Reynolds case promises. In this respect, to stand alone, the major ity of the errors appearing In the alleged copies of the poll books. Names of many voters are spelled incor rectly, and the addresses of many as given in the records are of such an ab surd character as to "show conclusively that the copying of the poll books was done In a careless and inaccurate manner, and apparently not by the election officials who entered the names and addresses up on the books. These errors are of such a glaring char acter that some of the printers and proof readers who are familiar with St. Louis are making many comments upon the character of this record.

Kaltwasser. BARTH0LDT AGAIN SNUBBED. Politicians Vote Against Their Congressman and Also Throw Cold Water on Joy and Otto Stifel. i i v "What are we here fori" This was the question put to Louis E. Kaltwasser. chairman of the Tenth Dis trict Republican Congressional Committee, at a meeting of that body In Clayton yes terday. It punctured his boom for the postmastershlp of St. Louis. The question was an embarrassing one to the chairman, and he announced that the committee was there to adjourn, a motion to that effect having been put. The announcement was made after Kalt wasser found that his chief object In call ing the committee together could not be fulfilled. The meeting lasted about fifteen min utes, and Kaltwasser announced after wards that they had Just met and ad journed. Yet in that short quarter of an hour quite a bit of political history had been made. Kaltwasser's postmastershlp aspirations received a setback;'Otto Stifel's boom for tho chairmanship of the committee died a-bornln'; Charley Joy's boom for Con gress was temporarily sidetracked, and Congressman Bartholdt's boom for a re nomlnation receh-ed a discolored optic by the fact that, on a test vote of those present, it was found the committee stood nine to eight against him. Taken all to gether It was a bad day for booms. In addition, the persons holding the proxies of Doctor Max C. Starkloff and Charles F. Vogel, received such a cold re ception that they considered themselves fired out of the meeUng. Bad blood exist, ed when adlournmant was had and some of the committeemen went away swear ing. The meeting was the second that had been held within a week. At the very out set there was a test of strength between the Bartholdt and antl-Bartholdt men. A moUon was made Immediately after con vening to a'djourn. Louts Hehl, one of Bartholdt's adherents, moved to lay tho motion on the table. He was voted down, 9 to S. The motion to adjourn was then carried by the same number. OTHER SCHEMES DEFEATED. Before the adjournment was had, how ever, Ott6 Stifel took occasion to say that he would not be a candidate-for chairman of the committee- Then Starkloffs and Vogel'a proxies asked to be xecogVilzed. Kaltwasser announced that they would not be considered. They Insisted, and the secretary was Instructed not to no tice them. Joy's candidacy for Congress was not announced on account of the absence of the politician who was In Clayton on tho preceding day In Joy's interest. The vote was considered by all present as a tit'c between the factions, and then the embar rassing question, "What are we here for?" was put to the chairman. The latter had hoped that his adherents would be there to give him a Doost In the postmastershlp contest, but. seeing his hope blasted, announced that the meeting stood adjourned, and he would not an swer the question. Informal meetings were then held In the Clayton saloons, lasting much longer than the formal meeting. At these meetings some of the Committeemen condemned Bartholdt for his interest in the Tom Bar rett naturalization case. Kaltwasser de fended him. and asked that Judgment be suspended unUt he returned from Europe, September 23. when he could conduct his own defense. To a Republic reporter Kaltwasser can didly admitted that he was a candidate for Postmaster. "I have been asked to take the position." he said, "and I would be an ingrate not to do it. I have worked hard In all the congressional fights. It Is but right that the committee should In dorse some one for the Congressman to support." The next meeting of the committee Is indefinite. It is "subject to the call of he chair," which is Kaltwasser. Y, Among the outsiders present looking alter Bartholdt's interests was unanes . Gallenkamp. Surveyor of the Port. CONTINUES TO IMPROVE.

"I saw no trust company official yesterday about such a matter, and have never seri ously considered making such a connec tion. I desire a renominatlon that is all." This is the first time that Mr. Cook has definitely said whether he would be a can didate for renominaUon. While in the city Thursday. Secretary of State Cook saw a number of his politi cal friends. He declined to make a defi nite statement as to whether he would make the race for the DemocraUc nomina tion for Governor or ask a renominatlon for Secretary of State. During the day both R. M.

WOMAN COMMISSIONER RETURNS FROM EUROPE. MIs Florence Hayward Says For- elBnera Will Attend Fair In Rec- ord-Breakingr iYambera. Miss Florence Hayward. who enjoys the distinction of being the only woman Com missioner of the World's Fair, is back in St. Louis, after an extended tour In Eu rope, laboring to Interest foreigners In the Ex position. Miss Hayward visited the Administration building, where she called on President David R. -Francis. Director of Exhibits Skiff and other World's Fair officials. In the course of her European trip Miss Hayward visited France, England and Italy. In those countries, she says, the World's Fair Is being well advertised, and all classes of people appear deeply Inter ested in it. It is- her belief that we will have many more visitors from England and tho Con tinent here in 1504 than went to Chicago for the Columbian Exposition. The work in Europt- is well organized and Is pro gressing splendidly. The long overland trip from the Atlantic Coast to St. Louis. Miss Hayward believes, will not keep away foreign visitors. On the contrary, those' who propose coming to tho Exposition will be glad of an oppor tunity to see so much of the country. After landing In New York, on August 23, Miss Hayward went to Canada, where she remained about' three weeks. She was surprised and pleased to find Canadians taking almost as much Interest in the Fair as is manifested by people living in tho United States. "Every one with whom I talked," said Miss Hayward. "announced the Intention of coming to St. Louis next year. Then Interest In the Exposition amounts almost to enthusiasm. 3 had the p.easure of meet ing Sir Mortimer Clark.

Recess Will Be Taken Till Judge Hazell Returns to Jefferson City Wetraore Says He Doesn't Know Zeigler. BT A STAFF CORRESPONDENT. Jefferson City, Mo.. Sept. IS. The wort of the Grand Jury for this week wUI bo completed to-morrow before noon, when it is probable that a recess will be- taken, until October 13. Judge Hazell must hold court in Maries and Miller counties, and It will be Impossible to have sessions of tho Grand Jury until he returns. It is not probable that a report win b made to-morrow, as the Attorney General has said that he thinks It would bo bet ter to save indictments until a. final re port is made. It Is considered certain that one Senator will be Indicted for soliciUng a bribe, and that a well-known, lobbyist will figure In the report concerning whole sale issuance of railroad passes to legis lators. A millionaire who does not live in Mis souri furnished money with which to bribe legislators, and probably will ba compelled to face the charge. A member of a State board also probably will be mentioned. At last the "discrepancies" are to be In vestigated. J. A. Parks of St. Louis, who has spent many- weary weeks "figuring" on the Auditor's reports, was a. witness before the Grand Jury to-day. Ho has a new table of numbers. As there are sev eral Republicans on the Grand Jury, once the Grand Jury adjourns this bugaboo of the Republican poliUcians and news papers will either be proved or -disproved in a fashion to satisfy the most fastidious. Parks has a new table of "expert" fig ures that Is said to develop discrepancies that make the famous JU.00O.0OO look Ilka the proverbial SO cents. Colonel Moses Wetmore and Colonel Sam W. JTordyce. both of St- Louis, testified be fore the Grand Jury this afternoon. Tho appearance of Colonel Fordyce was a sur prise to those who have been watching the Grand Jury as well as to himself. "In sixty-three years," said Colonel For dyce, "I have never served on a Jury or been before a Grand Jury. What this one wants with me Is more than I can tell." Colonel Fordyce. was formerly owner o a large block of stock in the Provident Chemical Company of St. Louis, which supplies phosphate to the Independent bak ing powder companies. It Is said that William F. 21eglers present holdings In this concern were acquired through Colonel Fordyce. WETMORE SAYS HB DOESN'T KNOW ZIEGLER. It 13 evident that Attorney General Crow is determlned'to make things warm for Ziegler. who Is D. J. Kelley's em ployer. Colonel Fordyce was subpoenaed In the hope that he might tell something of Zeigler. and give a line on the friends of the millionaire baking ponder manu facturer. Colonel Wetmore said that he did not know Zeigler. The Grand Jury kept Colonel Wetmore In Its room for thirty five or forty minutes. It Is thought that he was questioned about matters which have not been mentioned before during the investigation. Fred W. Fleming is said to bo en wuta to Jefferson City to appear before th Grand Jury as a witness. Fleming, ao. cording to John A. Lee, secured the ap pointment of Senator Jesse L. Jewell on the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee this y,ear. Every effort of the Jackson County Sheriff to. locate Jewell has bees fruitless. It is said that he Is now la Kansas. GRAND JURY WANTS TO SEE REPRESENTATIVE KNEISLEY. Another witness who Is "wanted, but who has failed to answer the subpoena which Attorney General Crow sent to him, Is former Representative Russell Knelwley of Carrollton. Ho was to have been hers to-day. Last summer ICneislcy was re ported to have told friends that at the session of 1S99 Senator Stone asked him to advance the alum pure-food bill on the calendar. The Attorney General wishes him to say as much to the Cole County Grand Jury. The investigation into the Republican senatorial caucus Is proving to be one of the most Interesting features of present Inquiry. It would be hard to exaggerate the factional hatred of the Republicans. They make no bones of their feelings' on the subject and express their opinion of "the other fellows" in unmeasured terms. Former Surveyor of the Port Charles H. Smith of St. Louis, one of the chief Ker ens lieutenants, and Representative J. E. Carter of Grundy County were before the Grand Jury to-day. Carter voted for Ker ens. There was a story current a few weeks ego that he had been offered $200 for his vote, but ho denies this outside of the Grand Jury room. "Lib" Morse of Excelsior Springs was given credit for the story. Carter's feelings towards Morse are not of the kindest. It is said that Attorney General Crow will have a number of other witnesses subpoenaed as a result of the testimony of these two witnesses. He Intends to go to the bottonf of the case, and there Is every Continued oa Pace Two.
