ROOSEVELT'S IF HE WANTS IT, BUT TAFT IS NEXT False Reports From Panama l (Special correspondence to the West Virginian.) I % WASHINGTON, D. C., Aug. 28.It is said on the best of authority that ; the action of some of the officials ol the Government In trying to get am thorlzation for the creation of a defl dt in the construction of the Panama ; Canal this year is nothing in thefworhi , but an effort to discredit Colonel Goethals, the engineer in charge, it is pointed out by one who is In a position to know, that there is twenty million dollars remaining in tfie Treasury as an unexpended balance, and that at best this cannot be all expended until long after Congress bas had opportunity to appropriate the amounts needed in addition to what has alreaJy been appropriated. It is said that tbe policy of the ad' ministration is to deal out so much to Colonel Goethals each month?dividing the entire appropriation by twelve; and giving him one-twelfth each month. What Colonel Goethals wants, is that he be allowed to use us much of It per month as he needs, It Is his view that operations will not be as extensive in the wet season as they are now, and that he ought "i be allowed to spend every dollar during the dry season that he can. 'Heretofore they have not allowed him to do so. However, the President has decided that he may, but all statements that are given out would indicate til it he wants to create a defclt, whereas, all that Be is asking is that he be allowed to use the available approprla tloq to the best advantage. It is-reported , on tne same auuior Ity that an effort williMja^yto.brjns; Jackson Smith,Labor on the Isthmus, to book for having been responsible for the circulation through a Washington press bureau of the report that Colonel Goethals had col feet and wanted to throw i-p had cold feet and wanted to throw up member of the old Stevens-Shonts regime, and that he is doing everything In his power to hamper Colonel Goethals. Washington is taking deep Interest in the report that Colonel Goethals has resigned to Joseph Bucklln Bishop, the "ten thousand dollar beauty of the Calan" according to Senator Tillman, the duty of hearing all complaints on the Isthmus. Instead of wearing badges with the words "Tell your troubles to a policemen," on the Isthmus the popular advice now Is 'o tell your troubles to Bishop. Secretary Bishop was never any too popular In Washington, and some folks are actually rejoicing here that he has at last bee? given a job involving harder labor than drawing his salary a > I his breath. The Taft Forecast Washington politicians are taking especial interest m me toreuusu -1 Tatt's strength that is being sent over the country from his headquarters it Columbus, Ohio. The claim Is made that virtually the same conditions prevail to-day that prevailed In the late summer of 1895, preceding the nomination of William McKlnley, only that the candidacy of Secretary Taft Is In better shape than that of Major McKlnley was at the same period In (Continued on >?ae Four.)GIRLS DRANK DRUGGED BEER THEY ACCUSE PROMINENT POLITICIAN OP ASSAULTING THEM.

CHICAGO, nLi Aug.. 28.?A man arlv^Ing la^" -^rl^ bfr' INSTITUTE HOW THE C \M\ * THE TIME EXTENDED FROM 6 P. M. SATURDAY EVENING TILL 8 P. M.?A SQUARE-DEAL FOR ALL IS WHAT 18 OFFERED. Yesterday In publishing the vfte ol Paul M. Hawkins a typographical erfnr In ttrMnh W&re trailSDOS* ed caused the vote to read 275,880, when it should have read according to the record of the vote as 267,980, This statement is made in fairness to all concerned ns the difference caused ( in the transposition is about 13,000 votes. So it will be readily seen that while the vote was slightly increased over the previous announcement it was not such an lucrease as the figures Indicated. So many' questions are being ashed about the manner of closing tne contest that the West Virginian desires |( to as thoroughly explain the closing as possible. The Issue of the gaper of Saturday, August 31, will show thestanding of each of the candidates at( S o'clock Friday evening, at whlcn, time t'ne last of the coupons will be accepted and none will be accepted on Saturday, only certificate votes will be counted then. Time Changed to 8 p. m. 1 At the request of so many of the contestanta the time of closing will bo changed to 8 o'clock' Saturday evening instead of 6 as heretofore announced. This we think a good suggestion and ! we have acquiesced in this request be- ' litving that the best accommodation I will be given to all Interested In this 1 way, as this will give everybody a 1 chance to get their meals and their 1 evening's work off hand and will give 1 the candidates a few more hours to 1 wind up their work when their books may be delivered by^ttiem Jn.to the : hands of the judges, who will be an- 1 nounced later. ' AH persons casting voles on that j evening will All out properly all voting j certificates and seal teem up wnn their money for subscriptions and have them ready to place In the hands of the Judges at the specified time, then It will be only a matter of an hour or two before the result can be ascertaincd and announced. BE SURE AND GET THE NAME ON EVERY CERTIFICATE VOTED. An absolutely square deal Is what everybody wants and Is. what the West Virginian will use Its best efforts to see that everybody gets It. If the Instructions are carefully carried out the best of satisfaction Is sure to be I the result as no one will know nor I have any means of knowing what mum- ' her of votes any candidate on the closing day will cast, as that will be matter that cannot be determined by any method of calculation or guess work and will be a secret within the breast l ot the candidate that can be given out from no other source. The Miners' Special vote has soared higher than any other class vote,reaching nearly 150,000, notwithstanding < the fact that the candidates for the y honors In this class were just one week j later In starting than any of the other E classes. Mr. John J. Brennen, of the ] Shaft Mine, stands to-day elected as y the most popular mine employe In Ma- a ?1 anma TTQirr aoHffl -1 I'll!a CUUUijf UUlQao avrnv TV*J nv?I? J campaigning or organization is mado between now and the time ot closing t of the conest this standing will remain t the same and be final, Walter Wilt, t a popular miner of Kingmont, stands t next highest In-this class and has over t 75,000 votes. There are a number of c others who have made a good showing, r Mr. Brennen will be heartily congrat- r ulated if he Is successful in winning out in this race, as there could hardly be a higher tribute paid to any man \ in Marion county than to be voted the most popular of all men among the mining interests which predominate In j this section of the State.
