tion Idea.
Miss Louise Lee Hardin, president of
the Denver Women's Easiness club,
has started' to put into execution a
plaif for the extinction of the masher,
gays the Kansas City Times. 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

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'

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.
"I know we. will succeed," trtie said.
"Every day we are getting stronger.
Interest has been awakened, and the
working girls of this city will have

as well as he did, since he was going
to watch for a bomb to be delivered to

At a quarter to 11 a man came down

him to see if he was watched was mak

hand was laid on his shoulder, and
one in rough peasant garb covered him
with a revolver. 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.
"I told my wife tonight that the hor
ror of my career was never knowing

Vaieviich, the brother of the princess,
placed the box on n table. Sergius ap

"It is so. . 1 hear the click of the clock

Valevitch stood inoekly looking at the
prince with a peculiar expression: then
lie went to the box, drew u sliding

workmanship,
"What, the Ivan clock the clock of

"Yes. Marguerite has intended a sur

lief spreading over his face Then he
took out bis watch.
"Eleven live." ho said. "If you hur

The next morning the prince at break

Washington, Nov. 21. 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-

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.

TOM HOEX HANGED.
Xtedi Scout Qnletlr Executed In
WroratiiK-o Attempt nt Keicae,
Cheyenne, Wyo., Nov.- 21. With
troops on guard to prevent a rescue,
Tom Horn, at one time a celebrated
army scout. Indian lighter and trailer,
hut who later became notorious through
his work as a stock detective on the
ranges of Wyoming and Colorado, has
been hanged in the Laramie county jail
for the murder of William Nlckcll,
the thirteen-year-old son of Ranchman
Kels P. Nlekell of Iron Mountain, fifty
live miles north of Cheyenne, whom
Horn kiiled on the morning of July IS,
1001. There was no attempt at rescue,
and the execution passed off quietly.
The murder was one of the most
atrocious crimes in the history of the
west, and while Horn's name was con
nected with the murder of a numbet
of ranchmen who had been put out
of the way because they were "rus
tling" cattle it was not generally be
lieved that he could have killed th
hoy. The prosecution of Horn brought
to light the- inner workings of a range
feud of long standing, aud at one time
it appeared there might be many ar
rests among; the wealthy cattle men,
but nothing came of the matter.
Horn was General Miles' chief scout
in the campaign In Porto Itico durin
the Spanish war.

Washington, Nov. 21. Major Estes
G. Rathbone, formerly director of
posts in Cuba, was given a hearing by
the senate committee on military af
fairs, which is investigating the
charges against General Leonard Wood
in opposition to his confirmation as
major general. The committee con
vened nt 11 o'clock and was in session
until noon. Nearly the entire time
was given to Majcv Itathhone, who re
Iterated the charges made several
times before to the secretary of war,
the senate committee on relations with
Cuba and in public statements follow

lolnted Seeretnrj-'n IiinI ructions.
With reference to the charge that
Governor General Wood had exceeded
his authority in giving instructions to
the courts Major Bathbonc paid that
the general had pursued this course in
the Cuban postal cases when he (Itath
hone) was under prosecution. This
was, he said, In violation of article SS7
of the penal code of Cuba and In a
manner prejudicial to the rights and
intercuts of those under trial.
He alKO charged General Wood with
authorizing the use of ex parte deposi
tions in the po.sfal cases, a proceeding
which, he asserted, is contrary to law
and the principles of law arid in this
case contrary to instructions given by
the secretary of war.
Major Itathhone charged that in ac
cepting gifts from the organization
commonly known as Jai Alal, to which

during the occupation of the Island by
the American authorities. He also
charged that the acceptance of these
gifts constitute! a violation of article
307 of the neiml code of Cuba.
Other charges were .'made against
General Wood ns follows:
With complicity with another army
oiheor In the preparation and publica
tion of an article reflecting discredita
bly upon an ollieer who ranked both
of them, in violation of an accepted
canon of military service and consti
tuting an offense commonly known as
"conduct unbecoming an ollieer and a
gentleman."
With directing and causing the an-,
ditor of Cuba by a military order to
violate the law in the treatment of ac
counts. With utilizing the services of an ex
convict, with whom he was in intimate
personal association, in an effort to dis
place his superior otiieer and by such
means to secure to himself the vacancy
thus created.
Incidental to these were many minor
charges. Major Itathhone- also offered
to produce evidence and testimony in
support of those allegations. He sub- ,
mitted a number of documents to tiie
committee and gave the names of sev
eral witnesses whom he asked the com
mittee to fmrumon.
Senate Gets Cuban mil.
Soon after the senate met the bill
passed by the house to carry into effect
the Cuban reciprocity treaty was re
ceived and laid before the senate. Mr.
Cullom moved to refer the bill to the
committee on foreign relations.
Mr. Bailey objected to this procedure,
claiming that the bill should go either
to the committee on finance or relations
with Cuba.
Mr. Cullom stated that it had been
the custom to refer such bills to the
committee on foreign relations.
Mr. Lodge maintained that the refer
once to the foreign relations was cor
rect, according to precedents. -
The house was in session but five
minutes. After the oath was adminis

house at 12:03 p. m. adjourned until
