SENATOR FRYE SENDS IT ON TO HAY If Until, “In Thus Demnitdlnn Justice Colombia Anneals to the HIkIi Sense of Honor of Your Semite nail People.” WASHINGTON, Nov. 17— Diplomat ic precedent is again turned topsy tuny iu the Panama situation and now by tlie Colombians, for President Marro ijiiin of Colombia lias rent to the presi dent pro. tern, of lit*' senate a highly worded protest against tlie action of the l'oosevelt administration in recog nizing the independ: nee of Panama. It is a direct apttenl for the senate to turn against the administration and undo what lias already been done by the president, tlie recognition of isth mian Independence and the wanting to Colombia that she must not try' to re take Panama. Naturally tlie president and his advisers consider this a direct attempt on the part of President Mar roquln to touch tlie match of eloquent appeal u> antagonisms against tne got crnmcnt which lie evidently believes are smoldering iu the United States senate. If tl'.is was his purpose it lias fail 'd, for Senator Urye has merely turned the protest over to the state department, where it will receive scant notice, be cause it did not come through the prop er clatnir'l for such communications, tlie state department. Tim protest, translated from Spanish, is as follows: "To ilis Kxi-clloney the President of the Senat", Washington: “The government, and people of Co lombia have b'.*on painfully surprised at tlie notiiieation given by the minis ter of tile United States to the effect that tlie government at Washington had hastened to recognize the govern ment consequent upon a barracks coup in the department of Panama. "The bonds of sincere and uninter rupted friendship which unite the two governments and the two peoples, the solemn obligation undertaken by the American Union In a public treaty to guarantee the sovereignty and property of Colombia in the Isthmus of Panama, the protection which the citizens of that country enjoy and will continue to en joy among us, the traditional principles of the American government in oppo sition to secession movements, the good faith which lias characterized that great people in its international rela tions, the manner in which flit' revolu tion was brought about and the precipi tancy of its recognition make tlie gov ernment and people of Colombia hope that the senate of the people of tlie United States will .admit their obliga tion tV> assist us in maintaining the in ti grity of our territory and in repress ing rn.it insurrection, which is myewu the npsv.lt of a popular feediu^f. "In' thf.s demanding Umflvv Colombia appeals to tte dignit.ijj|Rlil honor of the American sonde au^Ppeople. MAKitotiUlN." A cablegram from London says that the Colombian republic has cabled to London a lengthy protest against the notion of the United States toward i .in.iiUii, m w u it.*.* jin'm-ii uuii in ‘‘main responsibility for tin* secession of Tana 111a lies with llie United States government—firstly, by fomenting the separatist spirit, of which there seems to be clear evidence; secondly, by has tily acknowledging the independence of the revolted province, and finally bj preventing the Colombian government from using proper means to repress the rebellion.” Tlie message goes on to say that President Marroquin has energetically protested to the i'nited States and wishes that ids protest should lie known throughout the civilized world. The president contends that the United States lias infringed article He of the treaty of 1.840. which, lie asserts, im plies the duty on the part of tlie Unit ed States to help Colombia in maintain ing her sovereignty over tin* isthmus, and adds that the •‘Colombian govern ment repudiates the Assumption that it lias barred tiie way to carrying opt the canal.” He asserts that since IS"." they have granted canal privileges to different parties no less than nine times and that the treaty concluded with the late C 'iteiiil Hnrlhut (when lie was I'nited States minister resident to Colombia) at Bogota, .Inly S, 1870, lias tieen ig nored at Washington. After giving tlit* previously stated reasons for tin* Colombian senate's fail ure to approve the Hay-llerran treaty and asserting that the delay ill tlit* ne gotiations had not affected the ultimate issue of tlio canal project the protest of President Marroquin points out that Colombia had “constantly endeavored to net in n rrienui.v manner with me T'nfted States, even asking for the as sistance of American marines to in sure free transit across the isthmus.” He says the rising occurred when the government was not prepared, having withdrawn most of its troops when pence was re-established last year, and concludes: ••'I'lie hastiness in recognizing tie new government which sprang tip i umler these circumstances all tlie more surprising to tlie Colombian govern ment. as it recollects the energetic op position of Washington to the acknowl edgment of the belligerency of tile Con federates by tlie powers during the civ il /War.” WALKER AT PANAMA. / _ .»iii!la 1111(1 People Rejoice nt Visit of Roosevelt'* RepreMcutntlve.
