Authorities in Canal Zone Diverting Traffic Under a Disguise. New Orleans, La.: "The American health authorities in Panama are ma nipulating the health and sanitary reg ulations to divert traffic destined for the canal zone from the gulf ports to Northern and Eastern ports," writes Dr. O. F. C. Caracristi from Colon to a local business man. "The action of the health people has been decidedly antagonistic to Southern shippers, who are made the victims of unwarranted discrimination under the disguise of protecting the canal strip from infec tious diseases. Americans are not permitted to land at Colon and other ports in the Atlantic side of the zone through idiotic regulations. In this manner traffic is diverted from South ern ports, as many persons have been subjected to scandalous treatment anti have been obliged to return to the United States after failing to (ffect ex pected business relations In Panama." I)r. Caracristi declares that the health authorities have been denounc ed as favoring Northern ports to the detriment of such places as New Or leans, Galveston, Mobile, Penisacola, Tampa, Charleston and IHaltimnore. He says that unless the policy is changed these ports will have to be abandoned and the entire traffic will go to New York, Philadelphia and IHoJton. lie ac cused Gen. Davis, commander of the American forces on the lst hmus, as be ing especially partial to North'ern ship pers, because the latter have received prejudiced endorsement from Presi dent Roosevelt aul the members of the cabinet and diplomatic corps.

Oct. 22.-Former Presi dent Grover Cleveland in McClure's for November gives his personal esti male of Judge Parker as a ca:,didate for president. He says in part: "We sometimes find features of character so prominent in a man's mental organization that, like the fea tures of his countenance, are the proof of their existence. This is pre-emi nently true of Judge Parker, intent deliberation on reaching conclusions and his inherent judicial conserva tism. These qualities cf his mind are so distinctly apparent that they are at once seen and Known by all who gain the slightest knowledge of the man. This should make it thorough ly understood that those who love presidential pyrotechnics must look elsewhere. I have known Alton B. Parher for more than twenty years. He impressed me on our first ac quaintance as a sincere, honest and able man, and this impression has with time and o,,cirvatlion glrown to clear and nidouLLtiLt ing confid, cC. I am sure thiat I v1ea ur, nothing In making the puositive as~rtiun that the guiding trait of his character is his constant and undying devotion to duty. Judge Parlkcr's experience in judicial investigation, added to his natural aptitude in the same direction, ought to satisfy the most cautious and exacting of his abundant ability to dis i cover in the light of constitutional re quirements and in the atmosphere or enlightened but conservative Ameri canism, the manner in which a presi dent should best serve his country men. I am persuaded that the Amer ican people will make no mistake if they place implicit reliance in Alton B. Parker's devotion to duty, in his clear perception of the path of duty, in his steadfast persistency against all temptation to lead the way where duty leads, and in his safe and conserv. ative conception of responsibilities." Summary of War News. Military operations in Manchuria are awaiting the drying of the roads and plains, rendered impassable for artillery and even for infantry by the reoent heavy rains. Meanwhile the correspondents at the front report on ly desultory cannonading and unim portant skirmishes. The report that ,the railway station at Shakhe had been retaken by the Russians, and that railway traffic between that place and Mukden would be restored at once, was erroneous, the place still being in the hands of the Japanese. The Russian government is hastening the dispatch of troops to the Far East tp constitute the second Manchurlan army. Ruslans Take Two Guns. St. Petersburg: G.n. S.kharoff tel -graphs that the Japanese are conceu trating at Linshingpu, west of the railroad.

Mexico City: Word from Mazatlan states that since thro opening of the rainy season in the state of Sinaloa I the Guadalupe de Los Reyes Mining Company has lost bullion to the value of $100,000.

Will Have Supervision Over Mexican Episcopal Congregations. Boston, Mass.: The house. of hillI ops of the Episcopal c'hurch. in si-s. sion here Thursday, nominiatet Be (V IHenry I).

'1'h" of fi e Is one of r'ece:t ('rte a ion, ha,-il"'. been dltci(!ded ripcn at the pri, lt s,5s sion of the l'piscopal ollftll ('nc, in this city.' He\ . Avi's, who is ihe rec t,,r of Chri;-t Epis'ompal chureh at Houston. will have g'n:eral s~llarvi ion over the English speakhig omugri - gations of IEpiscopls in th,. Mex.hicjan republic. BY an overwhellting majority a conlmpromnise canon on the Iminarriag', of a divorced person was adoptled by the house of d:-Iputi s of Ihe Episcopal! giineral convention, and it i s can. curred in by the house of bishops, the most important issue that has come before the present c::.Iventloll will be disposed of for at least thre, years. The compromise mnas ure, like the old law, permits the re'marria ce of the innocent person in a divorce for the cause of infidelity, but further provides that no remarriage shall be allowed within one year after a de cree has been issued by a civil court. Satisfactory proof of the innocence of the applicant for retrarriage must be furnished in tho shape of court rece ords, and after the consent of tho bishop is obtained a clergyman may refuse to perform such a curemoty without subjecting himself to censure or discipline. In the opinion of Francis A. Lewis of Philadelphia, a member of the committee on canons, who favored no marriage of a divorced person, but who accepted the compromise, the ca non adopted is so strict that If en' dorsed by the bishops It will piracti cally put the charch, as he expr(esedl it, "out of the divorce business." Rumors of an Attack. Colon: There is a rumor current here that a large body of armed Co. lonrbians has been concentrated near Calebra with the intention of making an attack there on Nov. 3, the first anniversary of the secession of Pan. ama from Colombia. The canal zono authorities are investigating the re port, but no importance is attached to the rumor, the origin of which is at. tributed to malccntents. A High Priced Lamb. New York: Othello, the Moor of Venice, the only known complete edi tion of the first issue of Charles Lamb's juvenile tale, has been sold at auction here. It brought only $530. This story, combined with others, was reprinted to form the "Tales from Shakespeare," written by Mr. Lamb and his sister Mary.
