Reyes Fe.r. Outbreak. Con gress Adjourn, to Jan. 4. Alexan dretta Indolent Cloied. Diplomatic pressure will be brought to bear upon Colombia by several Eu ropean powers to prevent war between that country nnd the United States. The first step In that direction already hag, been taken by several foreign pow ers 'through their representatives, ot Washington, who have Informed Gen. Rafael Reyes of the futility of any at tempt by Colombia to retake Panama, declaring; that It will result only In precipitating the Bogota government Into war with the United States, nnd have said to him that the result of such a catastrophe Colombia herself must realize. If this Is not sufficient the representatives of three countries at Bogota will be Instructed to inform President Marroquln that Colombia can expect no sympathy from the European powers in any move she may make on Panama which would Inevit ably Involve her In war with the Unit ed States. Gen. Reyes assures representatives of the diplomatic corps that he Is do ing everything: In his power to pre vent an outbreak of his people before the conclusion of his mission, but al though his tnfluence with the army is considerable, he fears he can with dif ficulty check them much longer. He most fears the result of the announce ment to submit any phase of the Pnn misslon. European diplomats have told him that It Is expecting too much to expect the United States govern ment to submit any phase of the Pana ma matter to The Hague. Information has been received at Colon that 100 Colombian troops have landed at the Island of Pines, at the western entrance of the Gulf of Darlcn. The Island of Pines is in Panama ter ritory, and is the only Island along that coast which is wooded, peaked with mountains and also well watered, thus offering every facility for camp ing and being used as a base of ob servation. Dispatches to the navy de partment at Washington say that the 500 Colombian troops which embarked on the gunboat Cartagena and sailed "to the north" are bound for the Island of Old Providence, where, it Is sup posed, they will establish a base of operations against the isthmus. Unit ed States war vessels will be assigned to patrol the north coast of the Isth mus between Colon and the Costa Rlc an border, while others will endeavor to get definite information as to the whereabouts of the Colombians.

Reyes, Colombia's special com missioner to Washington has deferred until after the holidays, the presenta tion of his statement to be made to the United States In behalf of Colorpbla. It la said thnt the statement asks the United States, In the event of failure to recognize Colombia's position, to permit the arbitration of The Hague tribunal, of the differences raised. Co lombia refuses. In the statement, to recognize the Republic of Panama and continues to treat the Punanianos as revolutionists. The statement urges upon the United States the right of Colombia to send troops to the Isth mus to suppress the alleged Insurrec tion. If this right Is questioned by the United States, Colombia desires that the matter shall be a subject of arbitration by The Hague tribunal. Congress Adjourns to Jan. 4. Both houses of congress adjourned Saturday until Jan. 4. The senate's ses sion Saturday was devoted largely to a speech by Mr. Pettus of Alabama on the situation in Panama, in which he took the position that the recognition of the republic of Panama by the Unit ed States had been premature, and of such n character as to render It of doubtfuli appearance. Mr. Pettua de fined the question before the senate to be whether or not the independence of Panama had been established. He read from Chnncellor Kent a sentence de claring that "recognition of an Inde pendent government Is only lawful when a defneto government Is estab lished." "My God!" exclaimed Mr. Pettus, "what a commentary on our action down at Panama. It cannot be explained nor frittered away by any logic used by the man who Is now us ing all the force of his position to es tablish and defend an Indefensible po sition." He said that Colombia hia a perfect right to reject the Hay-Herran treaty, as had the senate to reject the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, and It Is bald pretense to claim that the United States was forced to Intervene on the Isthmus because of the rejection of the treaty at Bogota although he admitted Lthat Colombia made a mistake by Ty ing to get too mucn money ironi mo United States. The resolution .Intro duced by Senator Morgan Friday went over. This resolution declared that the president has no right to wage war against any foreign power without the consent of congress, when such coun try is at peace with the United States, that the provision of the canal treaty between the United States and Panama guaranteeing the inde pendence of the republic of Panama Is in every effect a declaration of war with Colombia: that the intervention of the United States in preventing Co lombia to suppress the secession of Panama Is contrary to the law of neu trality and the law of nations. The senate Friday ratified the treaty "for the extension of the commercial relations" between the United Stntes and China and then removed the In junction of secrecy. Senator Cr.nnan asked immediate consideration for a resolution directing the postmaster to send to the senate the reoorts of Fourth Assistant Postmaster General Bristow and Holmes Conrad, and Charles Bonaparte, special commission ers for the government. The house passed the pension appropriation bill Thursday on an elevator at the capltol, of $138,150,100.

His de parture was rather sensational. When the new republic of Panama was pro claimed. Gen. Castro was requested to take the oath of allegiance. He re fused and -was ordered to leave the country. Falling to do so, a squad of soldiers waited upon him and escorted him abroad the Pacific mall steamer, Barraconuta, then about to sail. Rear Admiral Cotton left Beirut Friday evening on board the U.

Dealing in Options Gambling. Dealing In options In grain on the Chicago board of trade Is held to be gambling In a decision handed down by the Nebraska supreme court. The ruling Is so sweeping that lawyers con strue it to mean that suits would be sustained If brought by speculators who had bought options of grain brok- ers and lost. The decision Involves the dealing of Peter Jansen of Falrbury, a prominent Nebraska citizen, formerly in the United States consular service, and once a republican elector from Lincoln. Jansen risked $10,000 on grain options with a Chicago firm and lost hia money. He resisted payment of the notes, and after three years of litigation the court decrees that . he need not pay.
