The ceremony incident to the recep

S-cretary Hay presented M. Bunau-
Variiia. who delivered a brief address
to whi h the 1 Resident fittingly re-i-o-'ided.
Minister Bunau-Varilla said In pait:
"in according to the minister pleni
potentiary of the republic of Panama,
the honor of presenting1 to you his let
ters of credence, you admit into the
family of nations the weakest and the
last Lorn of the republics of the new
worid. It owes its existence to th
outburst of the indignant grief which
stirred the hearts of the citizens of thy
isthmus- on beholding; the despotic ac
tion which sought to forbid their coun
try i" !!! fuliiiling the destinies vouch
safed to it by Providence. In conse
crating its right to exist. Mr. Preci
ib til. you put an end to what appeared
t b- the interminable controversy as
to rival waterways, and you definitely
inaugurate the era of the aehievemtni
of the Panama canal."
In response President Roosevelt su'd
ln accordance with its long-established
rule this government has taker,
cognizain-e of the act of the ancient
territory of Panama in reasserting tho
right of self control, and seeing in the
let en t events on the isthmus an un
opposed expression of the will of the
people of Panama and the confirma
tion of their declared independence b
the institution of a de facto govem
erninent, republican in form and spirit,
and alike able and resolved to dis
charge the obligations pertaining to
sovereignty, we have entered into re
lations; with the new republic. I feel
that i express the wish of my country
men in assuring you and through you
the people of the republic of Panama,
of our earnest hope and desire that
liability and prosperity shall attend the
new state, and that in harmony with
the United States, it may be the pro
vidential instrument of untold bene

Washington. November 13. War de
partment officials have reached th
determination that the situation at
Panama, does not warrant the send'ns
of troops there. Both Secretary Root
and Lieutenant General Young, chief
of staff, today authorized the state
ment to be made that no orders hav
been issued to any troops to proceed
to the isthmus and that none is in con
templation. In speaking1 of the matter today.
General Young said that the President
and secretary of war had been great y
annoyed by the published statement
that troops were to be sent to th
isthmus. No such orders or instruc
tions had been issued, he said. At the
State Department, a most emphatic
denial was given to the report. Offi
cials realize that any such movement
would add to the political complica

the American warships here were dis
patched this morning to stop the Ger

the Markomannia was coming from a
Colombian port, but it appears that
she had been chartered at Boeas dI

There was a big scare at Boeas del
Toro on the receipts of news via Port
Limon Costa Rica, that the Colombian
government was sending 5,000 troops
to re-take the port.. which had recent

republic and the Alcalde left on the
Markomannia for Colon for the pur
jhc of obtaining arms and ammuni
tion wifh which to equip 500 volunteers
to rcisit the expected Colombian at
Vaek. The Alcalde, however, has re
turned to lioeas del Toro to allay the
fears of the populace, and to give as
surance that the landing of Colombian
troop there will not be permitted.

Action at Panama Too Much Like
I Iairt rigger Diplomacy.
(Sprinfield (Mass.) Republican.)
Not f the least interesting of the
news this morning which relates to
the Panama revolutions and the con
nection of the United States with
that whole matter, is the depiction
from the New York Evening Post
telling how the plot Tor that now
famous revolution was hatched in
New York City. Truly "a revolution
while you wait" but should it also
bear the label "made m the United
States?" In .the newspaper offices,
where something of all this plotting
has been known, the revolution was
expected to eventuate on the 12th. It
came ahead of time, and therein is
one explanation for Secretary Hay's
official surprise over the suddenness
of the affair. "Sudden and start
ling" were the events in Panama in
point of a quicker birth for the new
"republic" than had been looked
But our great and strong nation,
able to deal with Colombia as it
willed without fear of the stern re
prisal of war, was ready with prompt
ness to do its part. The best friends
of the administration are sorry it
was so prompt to do, if not to dare.
Let the sophists split hairs as they
will; be the exact facts what they I
may: the sum total of it all is for
the wayfarer to see and to be im
pressed by. It is plain that, however,
much may be affirmed or denied, the
world will conceive, and the nations
to the south of us most strongly and
bitterly as the' fear their turn may
come that the United States has
been inconsiderate and brutal in
dealing with the rights and feelings
of Colombia. This is a matter not
to be lightly viewed, as it certainly is
greatly to be deplored, for It con
cerns the good faith of this country
and Its standing before the world.
The responsibility which goes with
great power belongs to us. First of
all. Uncle Sam should be a gentle
man, if not a meek and lowly Chris
tian, because he is strong enough to
be gentlemanly, patient and careful
certainly of those who are less
powerful and able to sustain their
contentions with the strong arm than
are we. Does might make right?
yes. when the cause is just; right
with honor. But might can do wrong.
To be overscrupulous is not danger
ous to us: to fall short of full regard
for others is criminal aggression in
deed, and there Is in it needless stain
and cause for criticism and disrepute
That such a view of us has been In
vited it is now impossible to deny,
and the news revelations of each day
but deepen the grounds that compel
regret over the precipitate action of
thf immediate past.

day, adjourning at 12:17 p. m. until
Mr. Payne, of New York, Chairman
of the Committee on Ways and Means,
reported the Cuban bill and gave notice
that on Monday he would call it up for
consideration. By unanimous consent
the minority of the Ways and Means
Committee was given further time in
which to submit a minority report.
Mr. Payne stated that the agreement
with the minority was that the Cuban
bill be considered until 4 p. m. Thurs

Immediately after the reading of the
journal, Mr. Livernash. of California,
rose to a question of personal privilege.
Reading from manuscript, he began by

insisted that the question of privilege
be stated first.
The speaker suggested that a resolu

question the gentleman desired to pre

order, cries of "regular order" being
heard on the Republican side,

Cooper, Democrat, Texas, voted against
Two amendments were offered in

the Republican vote. One offered by
Mr. Cooper extended the provisions of
the treaty to all other countries. The
other, offered by Mr. Williams the mi
nority floor-leader, abolished the differ
ential duty on refined sugar.
The report says: "The enactment of
this bill into law is necessary to give
effect to the convention providing for
reciprocal trade between th'"s country
and Cuba. This results not merely be
cause the convention iteelf provides
that it 'shall not take effect until the
same shall have been approved by the
Congress' but because the constitution
gives no power to the President and the
Senate to make a convention or treaty
changing the rates of revenue. That
power is expressly lodged in the Con
gress. "This legislation will result in no
harm to any American industry. Ar

the articles embraced in this conven

the very highest protection of any in the

Negro Man Robbed Remains of the
State's Largest Man Exhumed.
(Special to The Messenger.)
Goldsboro, N. C, November 14.
Mr. F. M. Musgrave, of Saulston, who
was so severely injured on Thursday
by the bursting of a mill rock at his
grist mill where he was at work,
died last night. It was apparent as
soon as a medical examination had
been made that he could not live
and the end has been constantly ex
pected since. Fragments of the fly
ing missiles from the rock struck
him on the head and throat and he
was wounded almost beyond recogni
tion. He was an energetic, reliable
citizen and leaves several grown chil
dren, besides a host of friends who
will deplore his death.
Messrs. Moore & Robinson, under
takers of this city, exhumed the ra
mains of the late Jim Jones, of
Greene county and brought them to
this city yesterday for interment in
Willowdale cemetery. The remains
of two children were also exhumed
and brought to this city. Mr. Jones
was, perhaps, the largest man the
state ever produced. He weighed
over 600 pounds. He was very sen
sitive about his size and did not care
to let people know his weight. On
day while he was In Goldsboro on
business, a crowd of friends worked
ruse on him and got his vehicle
in which he was riding on the city
scales. They afterward weighed the
empty vehicle and found that his
weight was over 600 pounds.
A colored man from the country
came to the city yesterday and sold
a bale of cotton. WThen he got his
money he went out to have some fun
and dropped in at a negro restaurant
where in paying his bill he showed
his roll. In a few minutes his money
