the country by British and other bond
holders, should assume a certain portion
of the debt of the country to which It re
cently belonged. .
Panama Should Pay One-Third.
When asked what he considered to be an
equitable proportion, the secretary re
plied: Probably about one-third, hut that should
be lett to an arbitrator. The total Colom
bian debt, with interest. Is about I15.0Uu.Oi0.
We hope that from the canal money
Panama will pay Colombia such share as
the arbitrators decide and thus purge
Itself of pecuniary obligations to foreign
countries.
So far as the British bondholders are
conrerned, we would rather accept the
bonds of the new republic, than anything
issued by Colombia. So, if Panama does
not wish to give up cash, an Issue of bonds
on Its part, or the acceptance of responsi
bility tor part of the present Colombian
Issue, would be quite acceptable. Such ac
tion would not only appear equitable, but
Would insure the new republic, good credit
In Kurope. We are Jtmt as anxious- as
the Americans to see the Independence of
Panama thoroughly established, and In
stead of putting obstacles In the way, as
seems to be Imagined, we are only endeav
oring to make lis independence financially
secure. Our council feels perfoctly assured
that President Roosevelt and. Secretary
Hay will not countenance any notion of
Panama wr.lo.i would be construed by Eu
rope as a repudiation of its debts.
. The promptness of the American action
toward Piinnma Is generally received with
admiration by the prominent newspapers.
"It Is In the deflniteness of the object,"
says the Evening Standard, "that political
triumphs . axe secured. America knows

about in the right way to get this, hag Suc

PANAMA. Nov. M.-Two event of great
magnitude to them cheered the hearts of
the Isthmians yesterday. The junta, ac
companied by Ministers Esprlella Morales
and Rlcardo Arias, returned the official
visit of Rear Admiral Gloss on board the
llagshlp Marblehead. On bearding the
cruiser "they were received by Admiral
dines' and the Commanders bf the Uplred
States warships Wyom'lng'and Boston. 'All
the An erlcan vessels manned ship, the flag
of the Republic of Panama waa- hoisted and
solutes' of' twenty-one guns' mite fired by
each ship. After being on board, the Marble
head about half an -hour nnd listening to
talks by representatives of the government
and Admiral. Glass, the Panamanians re
turned ' to the shore amidst the firing of
salutes from the American warships.
The second event of. great importance to
the Panamanians was the receipt of news
that France had recognised the republic,
which added considerably to the joyous
feeling of (he Inhabitants. Large crowds,
with a band of music, went to the residence
of the French consul, who very courteously
received his numerous friends, amidst
frenxied cheers for France.
It Is announced that the French colony
at Bogota has extended sympathy to the
government and offers to give foon.OOf) for Its
support.

CHICAGO. Nov. 19. Despite the united
efforts today of Mayor Harrison and tho
aldermanlo mediation committee to bring
about a peaceable adjustment of the Chl
csgo city railway strike, there Is little
change In the situation tonight. After an
all day session of the board of directors
of tho company, at which the proposal sub
mitted by the strikers to Mayor Harrison
etatlng the terms on, which -they would
nettle, was considered, a counter proposal
was prepared by the officers of the rail
way .company and sent to the . mayor to
liight. As soon as the document was re
ceived at the city hall the executive com
mittee of the Strikers' union was sent for,
but as only half the members of the com
mittee put In an appearance no action can
be taken on the answer of the company
until tomorrow. Mayor Harrison said that
some slight modifications had been made
by the company officials In their original
answer to the demands of the men. What
the modifications were the mayor declned
to say. -
When asked as to the prospects' of a set
tlement of the strike Mayor Harrison said:
"I am more hopeful than I was after our
conference last night, when the outlook
was decidedly gloomy. Both sides seem
willing to continue negotiations, and while
there la life there Is hope." , '
President Mahon of the Amalgamated
Street Car men's union, after reading the
communication from the officers of the
railway company declined to make any
statement, saying that the proposal would
have to have the consideration of the en
tire executive committee of the local union
before anything could be made public. He
expected to have a reply to the company's
counter proposal tomorrow morning.
Oae gerloas Riot.
A serious riot occurred this evening at
Thirty-eighth Btreet and Wentworth ave
nue. It was quelled by the vigorous work
of the police. .They were compelled to
charge the mob and to use their clubs
freely
The trouble begun when a wrecking
wagon, manned by a nonunion . crew and
guarded by six special policemen, paaeed
Thirty-seventh street and Wentworth ave
nue. A crowd quickly gathered and fol
lowed It. When Thirty-eighth street was
reached, 200 men were around the wagon,
which they threatened to destroy, and then
offered violence to the men. Just In the
nick of time two cars, carrying eighteen
policemen, came up. The crowd drew back
and allowed the wagon to pass. ' Soon after
the wagon and car, carrying Ihe officers
had left Thirty-eighth street the two cars
came up from the opposite direction. As
they were crossing Thirty-eighth street the
mob let fly a shower of etonos, demolish
ing the car window and causing four pas
sengers on the first car to flee. Tha mob
then swarmed on the cars and had begun
Lo beat the train crews when the two cars
with the policemen and the crew of the
wrecking wagon came hurrying back. The
mob, which had greatly increased by thla
time, waa in an ugly temper and refused
to move. , Jha .pollca drew their revolvers
and clubs and charged. The mob used
stones and curses, while the poltco swung
their clubs' with vigor. There was warm
fight, which lasted about two minute's, and
then the mob broke and fled In all direc
tions. A number of those engaged in' the
rioting were arrested.
Teamsters ttalt Work.
Renewal of hostilities between the Chi
cago City Railway company and Ita em
ployes began promptly today, following the
failure of the attempts at arbitration.
All efforts of the mayor to secure arbitra
tion of the differences between the Chicago
City railway and Its striking employes had
failed. The announcement was made fol
lowing a series of conferences between
Mayor Harrison and his medlillon commit
tee of aldermen and committees represent
ing the company and the strikers. It was
stated that the meeJngs developed no com
mon meeting ground it the opposite sides
and that for the present there is no s gn
of an amicable settlement.
A meeting of the executive councils of
all teamsters' unions was called to meet
this afternoon to take action, upon tha
refusal -of Mayor Harrison to accede to a
demand by the Chicago Federation of
Lrfibor that the police he, recalled from the
car lines pending negotiations for settle
ment. The first development In the fight was a
strike of all the teamsters in the employ of
the company. In all sixty drivers Quit
work.
The strike of the teamsters waa In obedi
ence to the teamsters' Joint oouncil. It Is
tho Intention ot the Teamsters' Union, If
possible, to prevent the delivery of coal and
supplies to the railway company and the
operating of its repair wagons. Thus far
the company has been able to keep three
day' supply of coal In Ita blna and no fear
is admitted by the officials tht there Is
danger of the power houses having to be
shut down from, lack ot fuel.
The action of the jo nt council waa taken,
according to the official records, because
Edward Dwyer, a member of tha Tram
stern' union, refused to haul nonunion elec
tric workers In hut wagon and waa there
upon diechargad. . Dwyer la aecretary of
the Street Car Teamstera'. union.
Raises Question of Sapply.
This Is said to mean that the company
cannot get a pound of coal or supplies of
any kind without employing nonunion
drivers. The company, anticipating tho re
fusal of the teamsters to haul supplies, is
said (o be planning to obtain foodstuffs
by means of the steam railroad. A shop at
Thirty-ninth street, and Emerald avenue la
connected with the Chicago & Eastern mi
nors tracks and with the street railway
companies by means of switch tracks, and
mill be used, it Is said, 'as a base of sup
plies. The stand taken by the street railway
officials upon the "closed shop" contention
of the strikers, which contention waa said
to have been abandoned by the men, was
made clearer' tjday when the substance
of the letter sent by the directors to Mayor
Harrison and the aldermanic mediation
committee last night waa learned. The dl
reo.ors said in effect that Attorney Darrow,
counsel for the strikers, in drawing up
the "closed shop" proposition modifications
had only changed the wording and that
what waa embraced in the clauae meant
tho aame aa a closed ahop. Tho directors.
It was said, would agree to nothing except
an absolute waiver of that proposition.
They would not, they said, allow the union
to control the road.
The letter further charged that union
employes had committed thafts and mora
serious crimes and that the directors of
the company would not let men of that
caliber have any voice, direct or indirect,
in the management.
Tha tirup on the Halsted street lino of
the Chicago city lailway waa broken today
by placing in commission Ave cars. This
Is the fourth line to be opened. Limited
service on Wentworth. Cottage Grove and
Ii.uiua avenue vaa wiutalucd today wilt
little tiouble. Police details accompanied
each car and train stmt out.
' No Oae Had to Pay.
Police dolalls accompanied each car and
train sent out, but tha forco of patrolmen
stationed a!ong the three lines 'previously
opened was materially reduced to provide
protection for the Halsted street line, which
traverses a. district In which trouble lo be
lieved to be more likely to occur. This Una
Is one of the main feeders for a large ter
ritory surrounding the Union stock yards
and extends southward to West Seventy
ninth street, traverslt.g the business center
of the city by way of Clark street, which
It enters at Twenty-second street. In spits
of fear that violence would be encountered
when the stock yards were reached there
was no ttouble. .
Starting at Seventy-ninth street the cars
sped along at a good rate of speed and
with but few stops. S'o attempts were
made to collect fares, and only about a
dozen persons, chiefly newspaper reporters,
aside from police and .trainmen occupied
tho cars, . , . .
Alfred Or mils, a broker, 41 jeara of
age, waa attacked and badly bealen today
In a fight growing out of a dispute with
two young men as to the street car strike.
GranniH, wild sided with the steps taken in
placing policemen on cars, received a blow
In the face, which felled him. Before he
could regain his feet the men set upon
him, kicked and pummelcd him severely In
the face and about ' the .body, rendering
Mm unconscious. His assailants were pur
sued by an angry crowd, which waa only
prevented rrom wreaking vengeance upon
the men by. a policeman, who arrested
them. . .- .
Mllltla Told to Be Ready.
One point that wl'l be Insisted upon by
the striker in the event of submission of
the controversy to arbitration Is that the
sessions shall be open to the public.
The Chicago Federation of Labor has offl.
dally and formally requested the mayor to
withdraw the police from the street cars
while negotiations for a settlement of the
strike are pending.1 I
MeanWhlli owing to the action of the
police In keeping teamsters off Clark street
and Wabash avenue to a largo extent,
mere is talk of the drivers agreeing to re
main away from all the downtown streets
n entire day, with a view of retaliation.
Following a custom when serious strikes
are In progress, mllltla commanders have
given orders In some instances that mem
bers of mllltla companies be ready for
service. . A Galesburg .company has re
ceived specific orders to be ready for any
emergency that may call for l!s services.

LIFE OF GOVERNOR IS' THREATENED
Letters to gtate K.aeeutlve and to
rmmlstsl Sheepman Say Roth
W ill Re Killed If Horn
la Kseeuted.
DENVER. Nov. 19.-A special to the
Post from Cheyenne, Wyo., saya that
Tom Horn confessed today to Rev. Ira D.
WCIlams that he Is guilty of the murder of
Willie NIckell, the crime for which he Is
to be hanged tomorrow. According to the
Timea report Mr. Williams asked Horn:
"Are you not sorry for your sins?"
"Yes," replied Horn with an almost In
audible voice.
"And do you not repent the crime you
have committed?''
"I do." I .
"Did Horn at any time deny his guilt?"
was asked of Mr. Williams.
"Oh, no, he made no denial, but In fart
several times admitted that he was guilty
of the rrlme. There Is no doubt as to that
point."
"There Is only one thing which keeps
Horn from collapse and offering up a full
confession ot his misdoings," continued
Rev. Mr. WT.IIams, "and that la the Arm
belief which he holds that his cowboy
friends will rescue him. This waa evident
to me throughout the whole conversation."
Threaten to Kill Two.
CHEYENNE. Wyo.. Nov. 19.-Governor
Chatterton has received a letter written on
stationery ot the Albany hotel. In Denver,
threatening him with death unless he com
mutes Ihe sentence of Tom Horn, who is
to be hanged here tomorrow for the mur
der of Willie NIckell. The letter declares
In substance that If Horn is permitted to
hang Governor Chatterton will not be per
mitted to live twenty-four hours. Tho gov
ernor does not regard the threat seriously.
George Jackson, a wealthy sheepman
from Rawlins, Is In Cheyenne and haa
asked aid of the authorities in running
down a written threat that he would be
killed If Tom ' Horn hangs. "I believe I
will And who wrotu the letter to me when
it la compared with those received by the
governor and by some friends of the con
demned mm," said Mr. Jackson.
George Hyatt, one of Horn's closest
friends, came to tewn today, and it was at
once reported that he would Join In a plot
to rescue Horn. He laughs at the rumor.
However, there are hundreds of cowboys
in town, and one company of twenty-five
and another of thirty-five arrived during
the day. Bets of 30 and $100 . are being
made at even money that Horn will not
hang. The officials accept these bets as
meaning there will be an attempt to rescue
Horn and have doubled the guard.
Horn Gives Ip Hope.
Horn, realizing that all hope was gone,
p.-ep&red tonight for death. Rev. Mr. Wat
son of St. Mark's Episcopal church, as
sisted by a choir of three, had a service In
the cell of the condemned cattle detective
tonight, nt which Hotn for the first time
succumed-to religious influence. The serv
ice was a dramatic one, and during the
singing of the hymn, "Jesus, Lover of My
Soul," Horn first showed r. realisation- of
his position. During Mr. Watson's, prayer
Jim McCloud. who brol-o jail with Hon
last summer, burst Into passionate weeping.
Horn seemed slow -to melt, and finally
knelt down and prayed .with the minister.
After the service was over Horn declared
to Mr,. .Watson, that he realized his position
and that there was no hope for him. He
then told the minister ho had been reading
the Bible and he believed he would go
straight to his Maker. Rev. Watson states
that Hotn Is not an Infidel, although his
knowldge of religion is most rudimentary.
Horn was given ltters.from his two sis
ters tonight, one tn CaJiada and one In
MUiaeurl, and their heart-breaking fare
wells failed lo destroy his marvelous com
posure. Kxueet Xo Trouble.
The authorities here do not expect an at
tempt to rescue Horn tonight, but In spite
of this they have taken most extraordinary
precautions. The outside ot th Jail is
heavily guarded by militiamen. '.it'.'Jc the
sheriff, his deputies and half a tf ozen other
Wyoming sheriffs, assembled here for the
execution, stand reudy to resist any at
tack. The vigilance of the authorities and
their fenr of the desperation of Horn's
friends Is. evidenced by the fact that
Charley Irwin, a prominent cowboy and
devoted friend of Horn's, this afternoon se
cured a letter frcm Governor Chatterton
asking Sheriff Smaller If the latter deemed
It safe to permit Irwin to speak to Horn in
his cell. This the sheriff refused to do.
AH preparations for the ' execution are
now complete and unless the unexpected
happens, Horn will be hanged tomorrow
noon. Govrernor Chatterton tonight re
quested the Associated Press to positively
deny, on his behalf, any statement that
may be sent out from Cheyenne to the ef
fect that he has isued orders to the mllltla
to shoot Tom Horn in case of an attack on
the Cheyenne Jail.
