The crux of the charges made by the

More than 23,009,000 2-cent "Panama

cause some official In the Third As
sistant Postmaster General's office
didn't know the difference between the
Gatun and the San -Pedro Miguel lock
of the "big ditch."
It was discovered two days ago that
the entire Issue bearing an imperative
picture of the Panama canal locks,
which follows closely the recent etching
by the artist. Joseph Pennell. "was la
beled "The Gatun Locks," Some vet
eran of the Panama excavation who
saw the stamps pointed out that this
picture was not of the Gatun locks at
all.- on' the Atlantic side, of the canal,
but of ,the Pedro Miguel locks. Just
west of the Culebra, cut.
A. Quick inquiry showed the postal au
thorities their colossal blunder, and.
rather; .than subject' themselves to criti
cism and ridicule, they decided to de
stroy the entire Issue. They thanked
their fucky stars that none of the Issue
had left the Bureau of Engraving and

tract with the bureau calls for stamps

It Is stated the new issue will bear

Wilseaa Oppose Display.
Did Mrs. Wilson hare a hand In Gov
ernor Wilson's decision against the In
augural ball? This question la beieg
asked in vVashlngton, but the only
answer given Is that, as far as coa
mltteemen know, the request lollowed
Mr. "Wilson's perusal of Secretary Flsa
er"s report against the Pennon Bulldles
as published in the newspapers.
Mrs. "Wilson Is known to have definite;
conventional. Ideas on social usage and a
determined opposition to luxurious dis
play, modern dances and other concom
itants of later day social life. Governor
"Wilson, too. Is known to view society
and Inaugural 'affairs through tne eyes
of so-called "Jeffersonlan simplicity.
Many "Washlngtonlans feel that he did
not care to be placed In thc position
of "Exhibit A" at an affair which. In
volved Government expense.
Rumors that Chairman TV". C. Eusti
would relinquish the direction of the In
augural committee were emphatically
denied today by him. "With the ball
plans In the discard. Mr. Enstls" posi
tion loses much of the honor liertofore
attaching to It, MnuEustls. who would
have been temporarily "First Xady of
the Land" by reason of leading the In
augural grand march with the Presi
dent, must relinquish the title. This
honor was the actuating motive In the
big fight which preceded Mr. Eustls
selection as a compromise chairman.
Is President's Adviser.
One particularly enviable portion of
his position, however, will not be re
linquished. That Is. the part of close,
friend and District adviser to the
President, It is an unwritten law
that the Inaugural chairman haa the
entree at the "White House for four
years, and that his suggestions in
District affairs are received as valu
able hints.
Claims that hotels In "Washington
are charging- exorbitant rates for "In
augural guests, are not substantiated
