Washington, Dec. 2. Dr. Ilerran, the Colombian charge d'affaires, called at the state department for the first time lu many weeks for the purpose," he said, of informing Secretary Hay of General Rafael Reyes' arrival here, of the ob ject of his mission and to pay a friend- y call upon the secretary. Pr1. Ilerran was accorded the unusual courtesy ot being received in the secretary's pri vate office instead of the regular diplo matic room. Dr. Ilerran made a long visit, and although at its close he said there was no announcement to make and that no date for the reception of General Reyes had been arranged it can be stated that be was advised of the exact attitude which the Washing ton government will assume toward the special envoy. If General Reyes is pleased to meet the state department ollicials on the ground fixed by them and for the purpose which they have named the arrangement of peace terms between Colombia and the new repub lic of Panama he will be cordially re ceived. Otherwise bis visit to the de partment will be fruitless and his mis sion to Washington a failure. "The United States stands ready to extend its good offices to effect a settle ment between Colombia and ranama, but with this exception It is not inter ested nor can it consider any other pro posal from Colombia regarding the isthmus," said a high official of the ad ministration. "l"p to" Reyes. General Reyes has been advised of this by Dr. Ilerran, and it remains for him to sny what will be his course here In view of this development. The delay in the progress of General Reyes' mission is due to the fact that the various Colombians in the city are making a strong effort to agree on some programme. Dr. Ilerran, as the only Colombian official with whom the state department will deal directly, is nat urally the prime mover in this effort to get his countrymen together, but thus far he has been unsuccessful. General Reyes himself has a number of propo sitions, and the commission from Boli var has as many more. The Colom bians will have another conference, and in the light of the information which Dr, Ilerran obtained at the state department it is hoped by them that they may agree on a plan of action.

If there are more instances vt graft than usual In this country, it is certain that the grafters are being more generally found out, and their nefarious practices exposed to the wholesome light of publicity. A few more instance In which the evil-doers are shown up, and the game will not be so popular, not only in national affairs but in the conduct of the large cities of the coun try. It is In Grand Rapids, Michigan, that the moat astounding revelations of un blushing fraud have been, made publio through tha trial of a former city attorney. The graft grew out of a deal for a water supply for the city. Kot alone are tin city council members implicated by the confession of the ex-city attorney, but other ollicials, the mayor and city clerk, several newspapers of the city, and even members of the state legislature whose co operation was necessary to the success of the deal, are mentioned as having received varying sums from a few hundred dollars to many thousands Fur its scope this alleg ed graftit has not been proven yet Is the most remarkable of those recently uncov ered, although the total amount has been surpassed in other graft-ridden cities.
