senate was In Seoul on for two hours today,
th greater part of which time wa devoted
te consideration of the situation on the
Isthmus. , The question was discussed in all
Its aspects. A . number of senator ex
pressed the opinion that the administration
haa .not been unfriendly nor ignorant of the
movement from its beginning, but It was de
cided, to wait until there la furthor light on
the question before advising the democrats
to take a position, on the question, as a
party. Some Senators .expressed the opin
ion that the mas of Jthe people are so
anxious to secure a .canal that many per
sons would even endorse a revolution on
the isthmus If It should prove a means of
securing one. Senator Morgap was before
the committee for quite a time and advo
cated a vigorous policy of criticism.
The steering committee also discussed the
policy to be pursued with reference to th
proposed measure putting In fore the
Cuban treaty. It was decided to postpone
further consideration of this question until
the house mskes known the conditions of its
bill. It was apparent, however, that a ma
jority of the democratic senator would op
pose the bill.. The steering committee also
took up ths subject of reorganizing the

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
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
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
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
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.

pected to begin the preparation of his an

Itself before attempting to Introduce naw
