PROTEST BY 11ERRAN" (Continued from First! Page.) her Intereots demand It. take possession of them or encourage revolution lit their territory. Any one can see that the Inde pendence of Panama Is but a long step towards American annexation. Reports arc current' that the ntstes of I'auca and An tloquia are also In revolt. While Colombia will not resist separation from Panama, she certainly will oppox by force of arms the withdrawal ot the state of Cauca. which comprises almont halt of Colombia, and Antloqula . probably has by these the richest In the confederation. We have 80,000 men available, and large quantities of arms and ammunition have: been gathered together to suppress the revolution. Ther is no question in my mind but that the Panama Canal company was responsible for the. action of . Panama, and that M. Phllllppe Hunau-Varllla knew Its Independ ence would be declared Is shewn by the fact that he left here for New York ten days before the revolution was proclaimed. There s no doubt that the canal will be built, but 1 assure you It would have been constructed with Colombia's consent. Business Condition Improve. COLON, Nov; .

ASKS I1ANNA TO CONTINUE Proficient Wiibei the Obioan to Bttaii National Chairmanship. SENATOR'S FINAL ANSWER NOT GIVEN He Weald Prefer to Retire from the Ardaoa Position, hat May Dissuaded at a Later Conference. Be WASHINGTON, Nov. 9. A conference ot significance and Importance was held at the executive offices today between Presi dent Roosevelt and Senator Hanna of Ohio. The president formally requested Senator Hsnna to retain the chairmanship of the republican national committee and to con duct the campaign next year. In the course ot tho conference the subject ot the presi dential campaign was considered briefly, not only the chairmanship of the national com mittee being involved, but Mr. Hanna' as piration to tha presidency. The president and Senator Hanna re mained in conference for a considerable time, notwithstanding the fact that several caller of note were waiting to see the president. The president urged the senator to retain the chairmanship of the national committee In order that the republican party might In the approaching campaign have the benefit of hi service at the head of the national organisation. Senator Hanna, it la understood, indicated hia desire to re tire from the work of active political man agement The president, however, urged him In strong terms to continue In the political harness, pointing out to him thst as the head of the organisation he would Inspire great confidence throughout the country. No definite conclusion waa reached, the understanding being that a further iand more extended conference would be held In the near future. When Senator Hanna left the White House he declined to discus th subject of the national chairmanship or to comment on the reports that he might be a candidate for the presidency. From other sources It Is learned that the senator ha Indicated that he will not be a presidential candidate, and has let It be understood that he meana what he says. Postal Fraud Cases. Justice Prltchard, in criminal court No. 1, today heard arguments of counsel on the application of August W. Machen, Diller B. Groff and Samuel A. Groff of thta city and Dr. and Mrs. George E. Lorens of To ledo, O., Indicted In connection with post office contracts, for permission to examine all papers and document bearing on the case. Charles A. Douglass, counsel for Machen and Lorens, In support of the petition said that Machen had alleged Interest In th paper and document referred to, and that while h had a general knowledge or their contents, It waa impossible to expect him to have a full and speclflo knowledge of mat ter In connection with letterbox fasteners and other transactions running back ten years. To do so, he said, would require something not expected from ordinary men. In requesting that the application be denied, Assistant United States Attomsy Taggart, for the government, argued that to grant th application would result In a disclosure of the case of the government before trial. Justice Prltchard Interrupted to remark that there waa a difference between evi dence In the hands of the district attorney and a publlo document. It waa not to be expected, he said, that counsel for th de- renaants would ask to see all the evidence th district attorney had. and he thought It would be Ineffectual to Issue an order on any government official requiring-' him to proauoe record bearing on the ease, unless they had been asked for and the request denied. Will Show Records. Assistant United States Attornev Taarart declared that If his office had any material documents he would gladly afford -counsel for the defense an opportunity to see them. Justice Prltchard thereupon remarked that It looked aa though counsel might settle the. case among themselves. A conference between the Judges and attorneys- followed at the conclusion of which, all-agreed that counsel for deiense should submit (ut ment of the specific evidence In the way of records, desired from the district attor ney, who would say whether or not ha had It, and If he did, would grant counsel ac cess to It. The Judge Intimated that If re quest waa made on the heads of depart ment for other evidence, and It waa re fused, he would consider the question of issuing a rule to show cause why the evi dence should not be produced. Assistant ITnlted States Attorney Taggart sought to secure a postponement of the trial of Au gust W. Machen1. the Groff brothers nrt Dr. and Mrs. George E. Lorena. from November 23, the date agreed upon, until two weeks later. He gave aa hi reason that some of the witnesses would be needed at th preliminary hearing at Blnghamton, N. Y., set for the 20th Instant. Mr. Mh.. who was In court, Insisted to his counsel that the trial thould net be delayed, and the latter entered a vigorous protest The Judge announced that he would take up the cases on the 23d, a agreed on. Ask No Legislation for Army. Secretary Root today stated that he ex pected to begin the preparation of his an nual report at once, but that he would not ask for any additional legislation along the line of th reorganisation of the army, believing that It I advisable to give the existing organisation more time to develop Itself before attempting to Introduce naw features. According to the present outlook. Secre tary Root will remain at the head of the department until the middle of January and probably until the end of that month. Governor Taft. who will succeed Mr. Root at the head of the military establishment, ha Informed tim that he will sail from Manila December 20. n To Cur a Cold la One Day Take Laxatlva Bromo Quinine Tablets.
