Washington, Nov. 27. As a result of
B conference at Woodley today between
the president and Secretary Gresham,
the cruiser Columbia, which has been
for several weeks at Kingston, Jamaica,
was cabled peremptory orders, to pro
ceed at once to ltluitllelds for the pro
tection of American Interests. All the
officials acquainted with the affair re
fuse to divulge the reason of the hur
ried orders to the Columbia, or to con
firm statements from Panama In re
gard to a refusal of Great Kritaln to
recognize the Niearaguan government.
It was learned, however, on excellent
authority that not only the Columbia,
but the Marblohead, which urlved at
Kingston today, will remain at Blue-fk-lds
continuously this winter and that
the Montgomery may be sent there
from Mobile. In addition the sailing
orders for the San Francisco, which
was to leave Dec. 15 to become the fiag
Bhiu in Huronean waters, have been
withheld and she may be sent Imme
diately to the Gulf of Mexico. Instruc
tions to prepare the Minneapolis for
sea at once have also been sent to
navy department chiefs. 1
Almost a M'ur Scare. y
There seems to be, In fact, almost a
war scare pervading the navy, brought
about by diplomatic rumors to the effect
that Great Britain, which, several
months ago, expressed a willingness to
recognize the full jurisdictional rights
of Nicaragua over the Mosquito coast,
has shown a disposition to resent what
appears to be the practical annexation
of that territory and its complete in
corporation as a portion of Nicaragua.
Not until today was It definitely
learned that Great Itritain had declined
to recognize the legality of the new or
der of things on the Mosquito coast
and that it had notified Nicaragua, al
though such action had been anticipat
ed for several weeks, which accounts
for the fact that the Colombia and
Marblehead wore not long ago brought
It may also explain to some extent
why the Montgomery was sent south
to Mobile ostensibly to test the new de
scriptions of coal. The near approach
of the meeting of congress, it is said,
pfves the president assurance that he
will be supported to the fullest extent
irt preventing foreign interference near
the route of the proposed Inter-oceanic
anal. , .

.Mr. Wayne Made the Musonlc Sign und
Offered fromOne to l ive Thousand lol
lurs for a Suspension of Sentence.
By tho I'nlted Press.
New York, Nov. 27. Presiding Judge
Robert R. Hudspeth, of the Hudson
county court of common pleas in Jer
sey City, created a sensation this morn
ing when he ascended the bench and
announced to the lawyers and reporters
present that an attempt had been made
to bribe the court. He commanded Ed
ward Wnyno to stand before the bar
and after telling him that he was ac
cused of that crime ordered Constable
Loch to take him over to the Hudson
county jail, where Justice Maes com
mitted him on a complaint of bribery.
He will be held to await the action of the
giand jury, which is now In session.
If indicted and convicted he may be
sentenced to five years Imprisonment
and to pay a fine of $1,800.
Wayne's sou was recently found
guilty of selling policy slips In Jersey
City and Judge Hudspeth sentenced
him to one years' imprisonment. The
sentence had not yet been carried into
effect. This morning when the elder
Wayne appeared at the court house and
asked to see the Judge, the latter was
conferring in the private room with lay
judges, Hoffman and Henry; but when
Wayne made a Masonic sign and asked
for a private audience, the other Judges
left the room. Wayne then said to the
judge: "I am a Mason, judge, and so
are you. I want you to let up oil my
boy. If you will suspend sentence on
him it will be worth all the way from
$1,000 to $j,000."
Well," answered Judgo. Hudspeth,
who wanted a witness to this statement,
I'll have to consult one of the other
judges on this." He called in Judge
Hoffman, and In his presence Wayne re
peated the offer. Then Judge Huds
peth became so angry thnt he struck
Wayne and Immediately ordered his ar-
est. .
Later the judge said publicly that
anybody who attempted to bribe a
judge or court In Hudson county must
uffer the penalty of the law, Mason or
no Mason.

Ey the United Press.
Washington, Nov. 27. Neither the
Japanese nor the Chinese legation is In
receipt of any Intelligence today bear
ing upon the proposed negotiations for
peace between the respective countries
from which they are accredited. The
Impression still prevails In diplomatic
circles that until a definite understand
ing has been reached there will be no
cessation of warlike movements on the
part of Japan. The Japanese, it is
said, are thoroughly distrustful of China
and the war spirit in their own country
is so strong that the sentiment of the
people is favorable to the entire sub
gutation of the Chinese nation before
receiving overtures of peace upon the
most favorable basis.
The capture of Wel-Hai-Wel, which la
south of Port Arthur, on the Gulf of
Pechlll, will probably be accomplished
within a few days, but Its fall Is not
necessary to the successful march to
Pekln. Wel-Hai-Wel Is the great mili
tary arsenal of China, but It Is not
nearly so strongly fortified nor so im
portant from a strategic standpoint us
Port Arthur. No doubt exists here
in well informed circles that Pekln will
be in the hands of the Japanese within
a fortnight or so, unless the negotia
tions for peace are agreed upon in the
It is still asserted In diplomatic cir
cles that Great liritaln, not satisfied
with the condition of affairs In the east
and with the prospect of the settle
ment of the war on terms favorable to
Japan, continues anxious to Interfere
and forcibly to prevent any further ag
gressions on the part of Japan. The
impression also prevails that Great
Britain has not wholly abandoned her
efforts to secure the co-operation of
the I'nited States In this direction.
