The ob ject of this is to protect the girls who work In shops and oiiiees. The plan is u fan-caching one. It consists, first, of a patrol of the tsttvots by a (score of young women, who will keep a vigilant outlook' for the street "masher" aud when found report his offense to the nearest police ollieer. In addition. Miss Hardin proposes to or ganize the young women In the ollices aud shops on a mutual protection plan. In this way when a girl has a complaint .against her employer she can rely on the assistance of many of her fellow employees to prove her charges.. The details are being carefully work- ed out, and before Christmas shoppers swarm the streets the women expect to drive the "mashers" from their fa miliar haunts. Miss Hardin is confident of her scheme, and woe betide him who at ' tempts to flirt with some entraneim; maiden he may observe upon the street. The prettiest of the working girls have been picked out by Miss Hardin to re cruit the "aniiinashcrs" police. She is working along Parisian methods, and before complaint is lib d there will be ample evidence to sustain every charge' preferred against the culprit. "No one woman will have to con front her employer in court, to be browbeaten and intimidated by law yew and retire wilting under the abus. heaped upon her," says Mis Hardin. "She will have several witnesses of lier own sex to substantiate her charges," Miss Hardin says she wan actuated in starting the new crusade by her ex perience in socking work in Denver.

His captor led liim to a short distance from the house, put him into a carriage and the two were driven to the private oiiice of the chief of police. As soon us they were alone in the oiiice Seat-off threw off his peas ant's costume and revealed his iden tity. "Valevitch:" he exclaimed. The other stood mute.

The coiumis tion from Eunama, accompanied by the Panama minister, M. l'hilippe Eunau Varilia, was received at the state de partment by Secretary Hay. The ex i iianges, while informal, were most cor dial and were In English. The secre tary first greeted Dr. Amador and then shook hands with Mr. Eoyd, the other member of the commission, and with the minister. Dr. Amador informed the secretary that the commissioners had carefully inspected the Hay-Eunau-Yariila treaty and desired to take this opportunity of expressing their entire satisfaction with Its terms. Dr. Amador assured the sec retary that no time would be lost in Its ratification by the Panama govern- !',, ' - "0. ' - v. Ml. WANUfX AMAHOR. mont. He then paid a tribute to the services which the Panama minister had performed in so promptly negotiat ing the convention. After these felicitations the secretary and the commissioners discussed the future of the republic. It was pointed out by the minister that the junta felt that it must first accomplish the mis sion to which it was called by the. en tire people of Panama namely, ratify the canal treaty ami that it would" turn Its atten'.ion to the oqualiy impor tant though "less immediate" work, of establishing a more usual form of gov ernment. The secretary expressed deep interest in the future of the new state. Later the president received the com missioners at the White House. The state department received a ca blegram from United States .Minister Thompson, dated at Petropolis. staling that the Ilraxlllan minister for foreign affairs had informed him that the Praziliau government was ready to recognize the new republic of Panama whenever application is made in due form. j Ambassador Tower from Itcrlin made! a similar report as to the attitude of ! the German government toward Paint- j ma. It is now evident to tiie state de partment that there will be no with- j holding of recognitions by all of 1 he i powers, as their representatives seem j to be convinced of the stability of the! new republic. Treittraent vt l'nretjen lioudhnlders The movement among the European holders of Colombian bonds to secure the assumption by the new republic of a portion of the foreign indebted ness of Colombia has not failed to at tract the attention of the commission ers, and the subject was broached in the talk at the state department. The first impulse of the state department otlieials here was to urge the new re public to assume some share of this debt, on the ground that such a course was usual in cases of national separa tion. P.ut It has now been stated that there is really no equitable standing for a claim of this kind. The bulk of the foreign indebtedness of Colombia is represented to have been contracted before the adhesion of the isthmus to the United States of Colom bia. The money was borrowed in the period between 1SIO and 1S21, before the formation of "New Granada. Secretary Hay has received word from the Tailed States consul at Gal veston. Tex., of the arrival at that point of a delegation from Colombia which is on its way to Washington. Secretary Hay promptly communicat ed the news to Dr. Ilerran, the Colom bian charge. Dr. Ilerran also has re ceived a dispatch, from -the delegation saying, that they are on their way to Washington via St. Louis and will con fer with lum at the legation upon their arrival., l'uither than this Dr. Ilerran is in complete Ignorance as to the mis sion of the delegation. Senor Pdaneo, one of the delegation, is a well known man in Colombia, having been a mem ber of congress. He came to the front at the time of the canal discussion by writing a series of brilliant articles in support of the Hay-Herran treaty. The delegation should arrive hero about Sunday, Dr. Herran will not decide whether he will recognize them until he finds out what their credentials are. At the cabinet meeting it was de cided to make no effort to ratify the isthmian canal treaty here until it is ratified at Panama. - V. v 1 ' " in, ' ) V v 'in Utidi.-' .u-JiJ i- EEJTATGB GEEE3T ON TRIAL.
