Minister Hart Sends Zalamea to Inform President McKinley of the True Situation. The United States vice-consul at Bogota, Benito Zalamea, was a visitor here yesterday, the guest of Mr. M. L. Ott, father-in-law of Hon. Charles Burdette Hart, the United States minister to Colombia. .Mr. zaiamca came as an emissary to ! Inform this nation of the true state of affairs In the South American republic. The facts have been shrouded In a veil of mystery by the usurper. Vice President Marroguln, and for that reason Minister Hart felt It his duty to ofllclally Inform President McKinley of 1 the facts In the case. The story was circulated some time ago, and published repeatedly, that ; President Sunclemente had .resigned and that he had been succeeded by ' Vice President Mnrroguln. This lnfor- i inatlon was cabled to the various rep- ; resentatlvcs of the government by Marroguin, who requested that the nations of the world should be apprised of the 1 fact, and act In accordance with the re- 1 suit. The consuls and ministers took ! little stock In the report, and refused to recognise him as the head of the government. Minister Hart thought It , essential to acquaint the President with the facts, and for that reason he dispatched Vice-Consul Zalamea to this country, who called upon President Mc- 1 Kinlcy Thursday and outlined the turbulent conditions in Colombia. The President gave an attentive car to the consul and expressed satisfaction with the manner in which Minister Hart Is representing the United States In that country, where revolutions are so common. and where a foreigner must be thoroughly conversant with diplomacy In order to avoid trouhie. Vice President Marroguln acted the Dart of nn emnornr hv trol of the government anil the army. Vie deposed the President, and together with hl? secretary of Htate, placed him in prison. whore he now In Incarcerated. He war placed behind the barn at midnight on July 31. Hln Imprisonment WW caused for no especial reason, only that ho might be humiliated and placed where ho could wield no power. For the past year there hun been a hard fight between the two political parties, the Liberals, or Revolutionist*, < and the Conservative. After the end of this contest, the Conservatives were cut In twain by the formation of two factions, Rrtown as the Historical and < tLOTHTEBS. 1 ;n 1 ST 1 Don't hurry.

Tit former was the one to which the usurp-, er allied his interests, and which is not in absolute power in Colombia.' President Sanclemente was Interviewed In prison by Consul Zalasei and he expressed his contempt for tit now government, and said he would absolutely refuse to recognize the present government. The new President Is nothing short of a military dictator, *n4 by attaining his present place he has ruled with an iron heel. "Several of the governors of the different states and other agents of tbt legitimate government have refused 10 recognize Marroguin," said Mr. Zalamea. "They have taken the stand that Sanclemente. having been elected according to the constitution, Is the only legitimate President. The supr?n? COUrt Illruu-tai* hj?s rafnaotl tn rfVOlHlln the new government. The Consejo d? Estaco (the conseil d'etat, or cabinet) has taken the same stand toward Mar* roguin. In fact, there Is a widespread opposition to him, and It is not Improbable that the Naturalistic win? of tilt Conservatives will Join forces with their old enemies, the Liberals, and endeavor to overthrow him. Personally Marroguln is a pleasant man. who has \*** driven to his present course of action by his party." Mr. Zalamea Is thoroughly affable, has a pleasing presence and speaks tie English tongue fluently. He says Mr. Hart is the most popular minister e?r representing the United States at Co? loinbln, and that he hns made ho?ts 01 friends during his short residence '.her* ilr. Zalamea left last night for X?ff York, and he will sail in a few days tor Bogota.
