S. S. Prairie landed here today under the command of Captain Butler and was entrained for Panama, whence the marines will be sent to a point on the coast south of Panama. This step is in consequence of the re ceipt of information that Colombian troops were landed in that direction with the object of marching on Panama. If this is confirmed it will mean a long campaign of guerrilla warfare on the Isthmus. The destination on the mar ines is said be Yaviza between San Miguel Gulf and Tuira River. y FOUND NO COLOMBIANS. Search Pur Colombian Troops By United States Cruisers Was Unsuccessful. Colon, Dec. 14.—Through the exami nation of the San Bias coast made by the United States cruiser Atlanta and the converted cruiser Mayflower, both of which vessels have returned here, it has been clearly established that the Colom bian cruisers General Pinzon and Car tagena appeared in the Gulf of Barien about thirty-six hours after they were re ported as having left Cartagena. No reliable evidence, however, could be ob tained to show that any of the troops carried by the cruisers had been landed either on the gulf coast or northwest thereof. The Atlanta and the Mayflower made a thorough inspection of the entire vi cinity. It was learned that at one coast point the Cartagena embarked a small quantity of naval stores, a few bulocks, some corn and fifty pieces of zinc roofing but no information could be obtained as to the direction taken by the cruiser It has been reported^'j Colombian troops were landed at a tain point on the Panama coast, but'the Atlanta was present at this place at the time, when, according to tl^ report, the troops should have been landed, and saw nothing. The naval officers found the attitude of the Indians to be indifferent for cen turies have ben against permitting aliens to land in this territory, and. these tra ditions they still tq^intain. They often declined to answer the questions of the interpreters and on several occasions their information was found to be mis leading. The information obtained by the At lanta and Mayflower indicates either that the Colombian troops have been returned to Cartagena or that they have been landed at some point on the coast be tween Cartjigena and the gulf of Darien and may be proceeding thence toward Cauca. The Atlanta sailed again toward the Gulf of Darien this afternoon and will continue a careful patrol of the coast. It would be impossible for the Car tagena and the General Pinzon to enter the Atrato--River because the mouth of the river has a six-foot bar. No small boats are obtainable thereabouts and no considerable number of troops could be transported up the river. The only boats to be had consist of a. few canoes. The remainder of the marines on board the auxiliary cruiser Dixie will be landed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs day next, satisfactory arrangements hav ing been completed to obtain good water for thejCamp at Culebra on the line of the-'Itauuna railroad.
