END OF THE WAR There is No Immediate Trouble in Panama SURRENDER OF COLON It Came About in a Bloodless Way Through ;the Peace-Loving For eigners, hut the liberals Were Downcast Because They Could Not Go Along Making Harmless Demonstrations. Colon. Nov. 29. The terms of the surrender agreed upon at yesterday's ; conference held on board the I'nlted States gunboat Marietta, at which the j commanding officers of the ' Marietta, , the British cruiser Tribune and the , French cruiser Suchet, Lieutenant I'ommander McCrea of the Machias. Captain Perry of the Iowa, Generals Alban and Jeffries, representing the government of Colombia, Senor te la Kosa, who represented the liberal party, were present, were briefly, as follows: Senor De La Rosa agrreed to surrender the liberal soldiers now at Colon with their arms, to Captain Perry at noon today; Captain Perry, in turn, agrreed to hand over the rr.fcu and their arms, later in the day, to Oeneral Alban who. In turn, guaran teed the life and liberty of all men recently in arms against the conserv ative government of Colombia. The surrender of arms was to be bona file in every respect. At half-past .eleven o'clock this morning a large number of marines in blue, jackets from the Iowa, the Mar ietta and the Machias were landed at Colon and proceeded to the barracks. Here the arms belonging to the liberal soldiers were taken over by the Amer icans in the presence of Captain Perry, and the commanders of the warships above mentioned and the American, British and French consuls at Colon and a large concourse of people who sympathized with the liberals In their surrender. The liberal guard, patrolling Colon, appeared sad and downcast. Their be havior, however, has all along been most praiseworthy, and it is not an exaggeration to say that they have gained the respect of a large portion of the community, especially of the for eign element, during th?ir short ad ministration of Colon. Later in the day. General Alban, ac companied by the offlijals of the con servative government of Colon, ar rived here from Panama, and Senor De'La Rosa, representing General Do- " 7.r 7, creiary ne . surrendered himself and the liberal troops to the conservative general, in the presence of Captain Perry and the naval and consular officers above men tioned. NEW SHOOTING HECOHD An Explanation of Dr. Walker's He cent Victory. The bird destroying controversy which has for sometime been going on between Dr. M. M. Walker and County Treasurer J. E. Walker was resumed "yesterday with all Its old time and homicidal bitterness. The recrudes cence of this dispute was occasioned by the circumstance that in a bird shoot ing match between Dr. Walker and W. L. Pinney the latter was beaten. At the same time the field record in this locality was broken and the populace was inclined to crown the doctor, the - case has to do with the right of con champion of events, in which the birds suinptlves to land here as Immigrants. TAKE A RECORD. See How Many Krfends Are Hurt Coffee. By It would be just as reasonable for a temperance advocate to drink a little diluted whisky as to drink coffee, for one is as truly an intoxicant as the other, and persistence in the use of coffee brings on a variety of chronic diseases, notorious among which are dyspepsia, heart palpitation (and ulti mately heart failure), frequently con- ptipation, kidney diseases, many cases Frank James will portray the charac of weak eyes and trembling condition 1 ter c- a prosperous westerner and will of the nerves.

When seen tern, caused by the persistent daily use tHv Bnl(1. or me urug caneine, nn-n v- tive principle of coffee. Another bit of prima facie evidence about coffee Is that the victims to the habit find great difficulty In giving it up. They will solemnly pledge to them selves day after day that they will abandon the use of it when they know that it Is shortening their days, but morning after morning they fail, until they grow to despise themselves for their lack of control. x Anyone interested in this subject would be greatly surprised to make a systematic inquiry among prominent brain workers In America. There are hundreds of thousands of our most prominent people that have abandoned' coffee altogether and are using Postum Food Coffee in its place, and for the most excellent reasons In the world. Many of them testify that ill-health, nervous prostration, and consequent inability to work, has In times past, pushed them back and out of their proper standing In life, which they have been able to regain by the use of good health, strong nerves, and great vitality, since coffee has been thrown out and Postum put in its place. have to be hunted and when found fly up in a natural and confusing way. This is supposed to be a better test of skill than In shooting; birds released from the trap with mathematical pre cision and at regular intervals. Coun ty Treasurer Walker is disposed to de cry the performance o Dr. Walker. He says that It was largely the result of scratch and luck: that in the first place he beat Mr. Pinney by only two birds and in the next there was an interposi tion of providence in his behalf, of a kind that doesn't happen once in a thousand years. The doctor, he said, by accident se lected the better field and ran into a labyrinth of birds the like of which the oldest inhabitant had never seen. Whe-.i the aoctor stumbled in amonjr thorn they fiew into the air in confusion and circled about trying to find their 'war- ings so that they could fly away. While ' the birds were taking observations the I doctor recovered from shls excitement i and bepan to turn his gun loose into the air. Every shot was necessarily fatal. The doctor hastily threw Li , more cartridges and kept shooting with the result that he soon had himself covered with a feathered canopy form ed by the falling birds. Even the sun light was obscured. In those circum stances, said County Treasurer Walker a second rater might win. He was glad to learn that Dr. Walker had at last beaten somebody; that fact would en hance the value of his own numerous victories over the doctor. Among those present while the coun ty treasurer was making this explana tion of the triumph of Dr. Walker was Neri Osborn, the lerk of the board of supervisors who said that he had heard ; so much about shooting lately that hi was almost Inclined to recover some of his old time skill. His long suit was the rifle. It was deer killing that iiad brought him into national prominence and he related an incident of which most old Arizonians have heard and which Indeed has been embalmed in verse by an eastern poet who was in this country for his health and witness ed the performance. It happened, or rather "happen" Is not a good word for that is suggestive of an accident: this thing was enacted on the Santa Maria. The party of which Mr. Osborn was a member saw a deer at so great a dis tance that there seemed no possibility of taking It. In the absence of a thir-teen-inch naval or coast defense gun and there was none nearer than Pre cott or Yuma. Mr.' Osborn took what every one believed to be a futile aim with his rifle and pulled the trigger. In a few minutes the deer was ob served to fall: the bullet had Just reached him. Then he got up but an other shot from the same unerring rifle brought him down again, this time per manently: Mr. OFborn had secured the exact range. When the hunters reach ed the deer the flesh was found to b? tainted. It was a very warm day in June atri meat could not be kept wait ing while a long journey was being made after it. CONSUMPTIVES MUST GO Holing of the Department in the BidenCast Sustained. New York. Nov. 23. tTnited States judge Thomas, sitting in the circuit ft . ,, t , , . . court in Brooklyn, today decided in favor of the ruling of the treasury de partment at Washington in the case of Thomas Bodin. of Philadelphia. The decision prohibits Bodin, a supposed consumptive, from remaining in the country. Unless the case is appealed to the circuit court of appeals Bodin will be deported one week from to morrow, probably on the steamship Etrurla, Bodin's wife and child nave remained from choice at Ellis island, and will accompany Bodin back. Judge Thomas decides thatasasimple question of facts was before him, in the premises he could not officially do otherwise than sustain the treasury department. No question of law, he observes, has been propounded in the writ of habeas cor- pus sworn out by Bodin's lawyer, The NEW THEATRICAL SUMMARY. Frank James Ex-Bandit Will Take the Stge. Zanesville, O., Nov. 20. After long years of deliberation Frank James, the ex-bandit. Is to become an actor. He will make his professional debut in this city tonight in a play entitled "Across the Continent." The company will tour Ol.io and several states east. It will not appear west of the Mississippi. This move marks radical change of purpose 'on my part. But I can do now, without offense to public senti ment, what I could not have done years ago before I had given indisputable proof by my conduct that the appre hensions of those who had no faith in me4 were groundless. I do not expect to be an actor in the true sense of the word. I don t delude myself that I have any talent, and my appearance on the stage will be more of a personal exhibit than a dramatic performance, , ALABAMA M. E. CHURCH. Annison. Ala., Nov. 29.

THE STATUS OF THE UTILE It is Now Being Determined in Jus tice Burnett's Court. The establishment of the status of the mule in Maricopa county was begun in the court o! Justice Burnett yester day morning. This matter came up in the case of John M. Hardee against Maricopa county, Charles Pendergast and his bondsmen ex rel. On September 20 of thi3 year a mule belonging to the plaintiff while trying to cross a cul vert in road district No. 2 of which Mr. l endcryast is Uferisor, fe!! through the structure and sustained injuries which have ever since kept him in a state of either incapacity or conva lescence. After remonstrating with the board of supervisors for some time on the defective condition of the culvert without any material or financial re sult, Mr. Hardee brought suit against the county in the sum of S5J and em ployed Messrs. Baker and Bennett, a firm of toOQ attorneys to collect it for him. The defense is represented by Messrs'. Alexander and Bullard. Mr. Alexan der's interest In the case Is more than professional: he is one of Pendergast's bondsmen. There was as much diffi culty in getting a Jury as if it were a notable murder case and one was not secured until the middle of the after noon. Ten witnesses were examined for the plaintiff and the sun went uown so that the case was continued until today. Among the witnesses was County Treasurer J. E. Walker, by whose expert testimony the plaintiff de sired to find out whether there were any funds to the credit of road dls- t trict No. 2; if there were there would be fome hope of recovery against the county. That was evidently a thought of Mr. Alexander's. Another expert witness was Dr. F. O. Richmond, who testified as to the di lapidated condition of the mule when he was called in the middle of the night to treat him. He said that all the ligaments were torn from one fore leg and It looked at the time as if it would be necssary to shoot him. He had seen the mule later and while there was an improvement to be noted the mule was still not at himself and per haps never would be. At present he was walkmg on the heels of his fore feeet and did not seem disposed to adopt any other style of locomotion. He further manifested a general in difference regarding all kinds of farm work. The inference drawn from Dr. Richmond's testimony was that the mule was less valuable than no mule at all and that the county should b compelled to pay additional damages for not having killed him outright. Then the doctor was subjected to cross-examination by Mr. Alexander, who thought he had caught the witness In a professional error. He understood him to say something about the liga ments on the front part of the mule's leg when Captain Alexander and ev ery other anatomist, knows that a mule has no ligaments there and If he had them he would not know what to do with them. Dr. Richmond explained that he had spoken only of the liga ments behind the bones of the fore leg. Captain Alexander accepted the ex planation and the case proceeded. It was developed that the defense is going to rely largely on a charge of contributory carelessness against the mule. The prosecution is threatening to bring the mule Into court today la- beled -Exhibit No. 1." FIVE MILES OF HIGH FENCE. Enclosure for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition Site About to be Built.

Tomor- row. at Franklin Field, for the seventh time the army and navy will meet on the gridiron. At the last contest the army received an unexpected defeat, that quite took the conceit out of the.value8 from what have been refrarded soldiers, who. with their friends and adherents, had believed there could be but on result to the game. The navy proved It otherwise. The army Intends to redeem the day tomorrow. Whether intention and. fact will be In wedlock Joined is the question now. Meanwhile both teams have been in earnest training for the only game they really care to win. The rivalry though intense is most generous, and nd is oniy mat w men comes irom tne pro- of national defense. Six games have been played hereto- fore. The army won two of these and West Point In 1890, when the score was't army, 0; navy 24. The second, at An-j.f. napolls. in 1S91, when the armyJ" turned the tables on the navy and beat it by a score of 32 to 16. The navy was overwhelmed with mortification, and sent a team the next year to West X Point that reversed the result by score of 12 to the navy to 4 for the'y army. In 1S93, the navy, at Annapolis, I X was victorious by a score of 6 to Then came an Interval of six years be- jf tween games, largely, if not entirely, .C due to the charge emanating fromj army circles that thwe contests engen- (y dered bad feeling between the two in- V stltutions. This idea has been stren- 1 uously combated. A better opinion prevailed fn 1899, and the result was'X that at Franklin Field the army won'- by a score of 17 to 5. The soldiers'; found a weak spot in the line of the' navy and battered at it all the time ' y and won their laurels by an applica-jj tlon of good army tactics on the grld-'J. iron hitting the enemy hardest where v you find him weakest.

NORTHERN BOUNDARY From Crest of Rockies to the Pacific Coast An International Commission to Make a Final Decision Treaty Hade in 1846 bnt Line Never Fixed. Seattle, Nov. 29. An international boundary commission is to be estab lished by the United States and Can ada, the object being to finally deterr mine the correct boundary of the Mount Baker mining district. The United States geological survey , has issued a bulletin, which outlines the plan and describes tne purposes as follows; -. Uurlng the past summer tne (.nitea states geological survey aim me and geodetic survey have been co-oper- "tins In a work of unusual importance and Interest in redetermining the line of the international boundary oetween tne united states unci canuus liumi the crest of the Rocky mountains to the Pacific ocean. The original treaty, signed in 1S4, which established the boundary at the 49th parallel, did not provide for its Im mediate survey over this section. This was due partly to the extreme difficulty and even danger of conducting surveys In this region at the time, and partly to the prevailing opinions that so rough and distant a region would be settled i only in a very remote future, j This view still prevailed to a certain I extent when In 1857 and 1S51 surveys f were actually carried out. for it was n-A..nrnon. thof it was Inexpedient to incur the expense of locating and marking the boundary continuously because, as they say in their official report, the country would not be occupied for generations to ginning to pour into Chicago for the come. The commissions did, however, ' meeting of the National Live Stock as determine the 49th parallel by astro-' sociation next week, and attend the nomlcal observations, and established monumenta accordingly on each large? stream and every important trail that crossed the boundary. Canada and the United States are both interested In having the line pre- ' clsely fixed, and steps ore being taken toward the establishment of a cum-I mission whose determination shall be' final. In the meantime provisional but accurate work has been done by the! joint party of the geological and coast ' and geodetic surveys to redetermine Ltiv i'ti uiu-i in i ri4u 'iy uia- puted sections, while three other pr- tiea of the geological survey have re- connoitered the entire'stretch of 410 : miies frcm the rrest of the Heckles to i pacific cohV - . - i- I The line traversed two mountain di trick, the Rocky mountains end the Cascades, and an intermediate country which, though hilly, is not so high.

A KilVE SUGGESTION Begardisg the Payment of the Stone Eansom. ' Soflla, Nov. 29. According to a let upon the payment of the full amount of I the ransom. A naive suggestion is current in political circles here to tne effect that the United States should force Turkey to pay the remainder of the ransom and. as soon as the pris- . oners are in safety, force Bulgaria to punish those persons guilty of their abduction. With reference to the reports of the death of Miss Stone, the government holds that if the brigands, exasperated by delay, have murdered Miss Stone, Mr. Dickinson, the diplomatic agent of the United States, Is responsible for the delay, and not the government of Bulgaria. The latter has not inter fered with Mr. Dickinson's emissaries, nor did the government move the troops after Mr. Dickinson opened communication with the brigands. NOTHING LIKE LEATHER. Washington.

A press dispatch from Ha vana stated that Masso complained that the iniluence of United States of ficers was being exerted In favor of Estrada Palma, and the dispatch from Bonachea to the secretary implied the same thing.
