For a time today in th? senate it looked as though the question of the construction eif an isthmian canal would be discussed ,'n the open sessien. Mr. Morgan spoke on bi.s resolution, introduced yesterday, calling on the secretary of the navy for correspondence regarding the mili tary occupation of the bays of Panama and Colon. He had not proceeded far, however, when Mr. Cullom, who had been following him closely, interrupted him with a motion for an executive session, which Mr. Morgan resisted. The chair overruled Mr. Morgan's ob jection and the doors were eloseci. After the doors were closed Mr. Mor gan continued his remarks, speaking especially of the irregularities which h said characterized the government of Tanamf. He did not, however, do this until he spoke of the course of the sen ute in c losing the doors w hile -he wan discussing his resolution.

He had not violated those proprieties, and did not Intend to do so. He expressed tile opinion that a question of such im portance as the construction of an lnter-ooear.ic canal in which tho entire world is Interested should be openly debated, and he announced his inten tion of offering a motion to that effect in the senate. Replying to these remarks, Mr. Cui lom said that he had not intended any affront to Mr. Morgan in asking thai, the doors be closed, and that he had made the request only because of tfv; latttr'r reference to the treaty which, under the rules, could not be debate'.; in open session Mr. Morgan said that he would tax the first opportunity to test the senate him that the American missionaries on the subject by asking for a vote, left Fez with a large caravan on Janu He then quoted at length the newspa- ary 12, Sir Arthur having advanced per reports concerning affairs in Coiom- j money for expenses. bia, . upon which his resolution was i predicated, and proceeded with his re- I rRETHXDER FOR SALE. marks for the purpose of showing that this government had undertaken to pay! the Colombian Insurgents $3,000,000.

President Kor sevelt has declined to arbitrate the j question us tr whether the allies shall receive preferential treatment in the settlement of their claims against Ven ezuela over the other creditor nations. He reached this decis'on shortly before 4 o'clock this afternoon aricl instructed Secretary Hay to despatch a note to the British embassy at once adviring the British ambassador of his decision. The matter there.' re n jw will be re ferred to The Hague tribunal. Thin will rcu!t in the immediate raising of the blockade. The administration, it i. rtated in official quarters, was un willing to approve the effort of the British government to eliminate Mr. Bov.en from the negotiations and more over the president could not have ac cepted the invitation of the allies even if he had been so disposed without the consent of the old negotiator. Minis ter Bowen. and this the allies did not obtain or request in their note to the president. In adminstrat'on and diplomatic cir cles the reference to The Hague is re garded as a victory for Minister Bow er, as Venezuela thereby is enabled to lecover from the distressing effect of the blockade before starting upon the payment o." her debts. The cumber some machinery of The Hague, it fs ex pected, wi'l delay matters considerably and the payment of the e re litor na tions cannot begin until the important question of priority of payment for the allies is decided. The findings of The Hague tribunal may not be handed down for some months. The tribunal also will decide the vital question to South Ameri'-an states as to whether blockades and bombard ments entitle the powers to preferen tial treatment at the hands of their debtor. Coming from The Hague, it will establish a precedent, while a de cision on the point from President j Roosevelt .would have carried no j weight rm h as establishing a point of international law. The effect o; an adverse finding by ! Roosevelt, therefore, coiild not have 'prevented the allied powers from re- pea ting blockade next month if they desired, whereas an adverse verdict from The Hague would add a new canon to the? law of nations and stop such course of practice completely. o DEATH OF .MRS.

The man of medicine can tell many interesting tales when he has a mind to. but the most interesting of nil is when he tells of the benefits to be had from pure, scientific- food and drink (such as Postum Food Coffee) used in place of ordinary coffee. In pn cxpl'u-it letter from a physicia'i of Henderson's Cross Roads, Tenn., ha says: "I drank coffee until I was a physical wreck suffering with constant anel seve re headaches, heartburn and extreme nervousness. Finally I be came a confirmed dyspeptic and con sequently weak r.nel irritable althougn I am by nature very strong and cheer ful. I lost about 25 pounds. "Finally my nerves were shattered to such an extent that I would regularly wake from sleep in a highly nervous and excited condition. By day I suf fered from attacks of vertigo and pal pitation of the heart, then I began t) believe it was the wor k of coffee. The constant over-stimulation of the car diac ganglia of nerves from coffee had produced exhaustion of the governing apparatus of the heart. The slightest exertion worried me almost to crllapse. My hair grew gray although I was but thirty-live. "My knowledge as a physician told me my conelmon was serious. I fjuit the use of toffee and Improved for a while but very slowly. Then my at tention was called to Postum. I got si.me;, made it right, and founel it de licious. "In a week I could eat as heartily 'is ever without th least distress to my stomach or injury to my nerves. J gained llesh up to 182 pounds and the; disordered condition of the heart ceased. 1 am now free frejm rheuma tism which oppressed me steadily whil I was using coffee. "Postum's discovery has been anel will continue, to be a blessing. I hope its use will extend until coffee, one of the most widespread and physically In jurious of all stimulants known to ma teria medica, shall be relegated to its proper place besiele morphine and cocaine."

One of the coroner's juries, the Culver jury, today rendered a verdict in the matter of the Southern Pacific wreck at Esmond. The jury found that fourteen bodies were taken from the wreck, three or which they were able to Identify and cloven of which are unknown to them.

THE GENERAL ON ANTI Closed Yesterday by Messrs Mine field and De Armond The Bill Will Be Considered Today Mr. De Armond's Plea for the Investiture of the President With Full Power He Ridicules His Op ponent's Loss of Zeal Mr. Littlefield Explores Ancient History and Proves That the Fear of Trusts Is Neither a New Nor a Democratic ThiDg. Washington, February C. The gen eral debate on the anti-trust bill was closed in the house shortly before 6 o'clock this evening. The debate had proceeded since 10 o'clock this morning. More interest was aroused as it pro ccedel and the closing speeches by Mr. De Armond, democrat of Missouri, and Mr. Llttleftel'd, republican of Maine, were delivered to crowded galleries and to a very full attendance on the floor. Tomorrow for three hours the bill will be considered under the five minute rule, after which the final vote will be taken. Mr. DeArmond who closed the gen eral debate for his side, said he re alized how difficult it was to deal ade qutely with the trust question. Hu man greed, with the best human intel lect at its command, was not easily baffled, and therefore a solution of the problem required sincere and honest endeavor. He was one of those, he said, who believed that a revision of the tariff could accomplish much. H- did not believe the tariff sheltered all thu trust: Still if it V'-r.nl.l hruulf tti.. ! bones of any of the giant trusts why. he asked, should the remedy not be applied? Some one on the other side, he said, openly admitted that the tariff fhould be revised In certain particu lars. Why should not the bars be let down when the tariff was made a she l tering place and a breeding grounel for trusts. His side proposed an amend ment to clothe the president with pow er to suspend the duties on trust-made articles whenever necessary to protect the public. Why. he asked, would not the other side Join in the enactment of that amendment? "Do you prefer," he asked, addressing the republie-an side. to trust tne trusts rather than your own president : 'We are not seeking to destroy," Mr. De Armond said, "but to preserve; to act as a bulwark to prevent the con centration and constant multiplying of monopoly which will finally crush out tho American individual and make a . husk and shadow of what was onc e his ' proud American citizenship." Mr. De Armond said that the bill re ported from the judiciary committee was quite a different measure from that originally introduced by Mr. Lit tlefield. "When the gentleman from Maine started out." said he. "h had blood in his eye and a tomahawk in his hand. But by the time he and his colleagues caught up with the trusts. they were smoking the pipe of peace. The sky was clear and Ihe j ickings were tj continue good for trusts. If it j was desired to do something effec tive. the minority amendment should be adopted. Corporations should be made amenable to local courts as Individuals were. The taxing power of the gov ernment should be applied as it was to suppress the state banks. The bank ruptcy act should be used to throw the trusts into court if they violated the law." He believed that members should eriously without seeking party ad vantage strive to place an effective law on the statute books. "The administration and the repub lican majority in congress." he said. will go far enough to satisfy the peo ple that it seeks to do something for the people but not far enough to hurt the ieople's enemy."

DEBATE TRUST BILL Under the Five Minute Rule the majority. He said that no one seriously believed that with the exist ing constitutional limitations a bill could be prepared that would fully and adequately meet the situation. But he believed the committee had presented a "fair, reasonable and constitutional measure," and as such he hoped it would address itself to the members of the house. Mr. Littlefield created much amuse ment by reading a most extravagant denunciation of combinations and then announcing that the extract was not from a speech of any gentleman on the floor or other side, but from a speech of Sir John Culpepper, delivered in the British parliament, 262 years ago. "They had them then," said he, "just as we have them now. I call your at tention to the fact that there was no protective tariff in those days." He traced the history of combinations back 2.300 B. C, to show, he said, that combinations had always existed and that there had been an outcry against them. It showed further, he said, how old and how difficult the question be Torc congress was now. Speaking cf the bill, Mr. Littlefield said it was not contended that the publicity features was a specific or a cure-all for monopoly, but only that it was a step in the right direction, help ful to the public in three conneetions where th? corporations touched the people, namely, as investors, creditors and consumers. In reply to a question Mr. Littlefield said he did not believe . that congress should penalize over capitalization. To do so, he said, would produce a panic. But publicity, he in sisted, would acquaint, the people with the facts and the evils of overcapital ization would be gradually corrected. When Mr. Littlefield concluded the general debate was formally declared closed and at 5:J.5 p. m. the house ad- journed CANANEA TIED UP. Tucson, Ariz., February 6.
