SAYS OFFICIALS COACH OTHERS Attorney for Defendants . In Postal Frnnd Trials Offers AfOdarlta Supporting Claim. ' . WASHINGTON, Jan. 20.-Wben the postal trial waa resumed today Mr. Kumler, re ferring to his charge, made yesterday, that Postofflce Inspector Mayer had coached witnesses, said he did not want to call ths attention of the court again to tho matter, but as the district attorney had pressed him for proof of his Insertion, be wai prepared to present an affidavit. The district attorney protested that the matter could not bo brought before the court In this way, that oral testimony should be heard. "I beg to differ with you as to that," re marked Justice Prltchard. Mr. Kumler then said as two affidavits would be n.ces sary, he would obtain one mpre, wher. upon Justice Prltchard remarked that If he found sufficient cause for Issuing a rule for contempt against Mayer he would do It. Mr. Douglass Interjected the statement that tha affidavit would apply equally and perhaps more so to Postofflce Inspector Gregory. Justice Prltchard Informed counsel on both sides that he would demand that no extraneous matter be Introduced to in fluence the Jury, but that If It was he would take occasion to mention It when he delivered his charge to the Jury. . Henry C- Lockwood, chief clerk city de livery New York postofflce, .testified. An swering a question by Mr. Taggert, Mr. Lockwood said that by a letter dated Feb ruary 1, 1894, he was notified that ,0fO Groff fasteners were ordered supplied to his office, without any requisition first having been made therefor. Counsel for the defense objected. Mr. Taggert stated that his object was to show Machen was specially energetlo In distributing these fasteners. Justice Prltchard announced that he would admit as competent any evidence tending to show facts In connection with the furtherance of the allegations In the Indictment. He baa, he aald, anticipated this very question and had given It much thought. The wit ness then continued the testimony' after counsel stated they would argue the point further tomorrow. Lockwood explained various Initials on ths letters by saying they represented those of officials of the New York postofflce through whose handa the letters passed. It developed from further questioning that the Initials "A. W. M." also were on tho letter. On cross-examination witness said he never saw Machen sign his Initials, and therefore did not know whether they ware put there by Machen or one of Machen's clerks, although hla familiarity with communications from tho department led him to believe that it came from Machen'a office. Counsel then became in volved In another legal argument, as Mr. Douglass had again objected to the ad mission of tho letter because there waa no evidence to show that Maohen aver saw It or even dictated 1L Jhe court held that as the government waa trying to Identify the initials "A. W. M." aa having been made by Machen, and tha witness waa not able to positively do so, he would require the Initials to be proved before this particular testimony would be admitted. "Without such proof,'! the court said with emphasis, "that Is no evidence whatever against thla defendant Machen. We will proceed according- to law." The witness was excused to be cmss-exsmlned later. Several witnesses from Cleveland and Toledo having certain connection with the banking Institutions, testified to various deposits by tho Lorent'a of checks of D. B. Groff for large amounts and of certain debts made against their Individual ac counts. Henry Humphreys, a clerk In a Cleve land bank. Identified certain letters. He produced the copybook of the bank, con taining the replies to these letters, one of which the witness read, showing that the bank had returned a check for 13,000 mad. In favor of Oeorge Lor ens by D. B. Groff, because It was Improperly endorsed. The witness Identified a draft for 1600 drawn In favor of George Lorens, and endorsed by him over to Machen. DEBATE ON THE PANAMA CANAL Senator Patterson Finishes and Mr. matt Begins Ills Argu ment. WASHINGTON, Jan. 20.-Mr. Patterson today completed and Mr. Piatt of Con necticut , began a speech on the Panama canal question. Mr. Patterson declared that the president was largely responsible for the revolt In Panama and announced hla decided preference for the "Nlear aguan" route. Mr. Piatt took his pro nouncement for Nicaragua as the text for his remarks, saying It explained the mys tery .of th otherwise unexplalnable op position , on the part of the democratlo senators of the Panama treaty. Mr. Piatt then argued In support of the course of the administration In Panama. He declared that the democrats lost sight of the fact that Panama's Independence was an established fact, recognized not only by the United States, but by the great nations of the earth and that If we" had violated International laws, so had Great Britain, Germany and France. Without Mr. Piatt's completing his speech the senate, at 4:0 p. m., adjourned. WILL DROP ALL AMENDMENTS rn AN ma Canal Treaty la to Be Passed by the Senate na Re ceived. WASHINGTON. Jan. 20.

Etringth and Character. WILLFUL INTENT CLAUSE IS ELIMINATED On Section of Hll Provides Penalties for Adulterations and Mlsbrnnded Goods and for Punishment of Offenders. WASHINGTON, Jan. .-Tha house passed the Hepburn pur food bill today on a rising vote, 201 to 6$, Its opponents being unable to secure a roll oall. The amendment Inserting the word "wilful." with reference to persons who sell adul terated or mlsbranded goods and which would have compelled the government to prove Intent to violate the law by the ven ders, was stricken out on a yea and nay vote in the house. Several attempts were made to amend the bill, but no material changes were made. The bill fixes the standard of foods and drugs aa to their purity, strength and character, and defines what shall be con sidered adulterations or misbranding of foods and drugs. It also prohibits Inter state commerce. Importation and exporta tion of such mlsbranded or adulterated articles. It Is proposed to enlarge the scope of the bureau of chemistry to Include the bureau of foods and Impose upon It the duty of performing all chemical work for the other executive departments. This bureau will be charged with the duty of Inspecting food and drug products which belong to Interstate or foreign commerce, Tho secretary of commerce Is given au thority to employ such chemists, Inspectors, clerks and laborers aa may be necessary for the enforcement of the act. One section of the bill provides pen alties for the Introduction of adul terated or mlsbranded foods or drinks and another section requires the secretary of agriculture to prescribe rules and regulations to govern the bureau of chemistry and foods In exam inations of articles required to be Inspected under the law. Violations of the law shnll be reported by the secretary of agriculture to the proper district attorney of the United States, who Is to direct and cause proceedings without delay. As soon as the bill was reported to the house Mr. Hepburn moved an amendment eliminating the amendment offered yester day on motion , of Mr. Stephens, dem. (Tex.), which made It necessary to ahow "wilful" latent on the part of persons prosecuted. Mr. Hepburn said that with the Stephens amendment In the bill It would be entirely Inefficacious as a law. The Hepburn amendment was agreed to by a vote of 146 to 126. The bill then was passed by a rising vote of 201 to 68, tho yeas and nays being refused. Mr. Hull of Iowa, chairman of the com mittee on military affairs, reported the army appropriation bill and gave notice that he would call it up tomorrow. Mr. Payne, . chairman of the ways and means committee, reported a substitute for the Hitchcock resolution celling on the sec retary of tho treasury to furnish the house information regarding the number of car riages furnished the department at govern ment expense. The substitute, Mr, Payne explained, called for the same Information as tha original resolution. It was agreed to. Mr. Zerfor, dem. (Ind.), was granted forty five minutes for a speech on good roada. He maintained that the general govern ment should bear 60 per cent of tha cost of construction of publlo highways. At 6:80 h house adjourned, ' ' TONE 1U0RE PACIFIC (Continued from First Page.) 1 last demands, he says, M. Nelldoff 'gave up hla vacation and began frequent con ferences with M. Delcasee. It Is expected that the exchange of views will exert a strong Influence In shaping the course Rus sia will adopt. Among the officials and diplomats It Is understood here that the exchanges will have the following results: First Russia, appreciating the decisive rature of the lPauee presented In Japan's last note, Ueslres to eecure the advice of lm nearest political friend, and. Second France wli-hes to exercise ,ts In fluence to prevent war, In which it might become embroiled. More particularly France has begun to realise that it ought to be consulted con cerning Russia's course In China, t, Rus sia and France Jointly promulgated the note of March 19, 1902, and setting forth that they would act together concerning the Integrity and free development of China, Concerning Russia's wish to consult France, It Is said that the Radian f coign minister. Count Lamsdorff, has high re gard for M. Delcasso's prudence In ths difficult situation. . Lamsdorff Haa Hnrd Taak. One of the most prominent Clplomata said today that Count Lamsdorft's task In an swering tha Japanese note Is one of the most difficult he ever observed, owing to Russia's dilemma, due to Its determina tion to firmly maintain Ita position and at the same time comply with ths csar's desire for peace. M. DHcasse'a talks with members of the diplomatic corps during the last few days revealed hla extreme desire for the maintenance of peaoe, and his advice to Russia undoubtedly fol lowed the same lines. It is the general Impression her that if war breaks out the beat diplomacy may not succeed In keeping France out of the Imbroglio. Therefore, M. Delcaaae, consid ering the self-interests of Franoa, aa w.U as of tha Franco-Russian note of 1902, la counsollng paclflo adjuatmsnt. Concerning the specific character of M. Deloasse's advice, the only guide Is the nolo of 1002. which is being much discussed In the efforts to determine Its bearing on the present situation. The text of the document refers to the purposes of the two governments to safeguard tha Integrity of China and approvea the principle that China and Corea shall remain open to the commerce and Industry of all nations. This course Is construed here as restricted to the eighteen provinces of old China and as not applying to Manchuria and other parts of the Chinese empire outside of old China. Therefore, while the Franco-Russian agreement Is serving to bring about an exchange of views. It Is held that the agreement does not limit Russia concern ing Manchuria. Sees Vnele gam Grow Bigger. The Temps thla evening published a lead ing article on the Increasing Importance of the role of the United Btates In the Japanese-Russian situation. It reflects the grow ing French sentiment, which to some ex tent la shared In other quarters, and says: "It cannot be disguised that the appear ance of tha United Statea upon the scene la calculated to encourage Japan." Continuing, the Temps reviews the early friendship between Russia and the United Btates and the alleged recent gradual estrangement, which la attributed to ths ratification of the commercial treaty be tween China and tha United States, and de clares that thla may be "according to the view Uken at Washington and at St. Petersburg, either the final point of de parture for new complications or the happy conclusion of misunderstandings." The paper adds: "It depends much upon tho wisdom and pacific spirit of President Roosevelt In exerting upon the crisis his conciliatory Influence at Tokio, as, - It la hoped, Great Britain haa done already, and, aa It Is believed, France Is not neglecting to do at sit. Petersburg. Mlatako Cnn.es n Spasm. ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 20,-The attacks on Japan in the Russian press are ceasing. The newspaper print fomlnently reports to tha effect that tho acute phase Is pass ing and they continue to assert that media tion Is unnecessary. A confusion of Olongapo, In 8ublg bay, near Manila, with Tongampho, on the Yalu river, haa led the Russian press Into a curious attack on the United States. The statement that Rear Admiral Evans' sqiTRdron waa to proceed to Olongapo wss either garbled fn transmission or rnlsun drstood, for it was reported here that the destination of the American ships was "Yongampho." This error was made the basis of an attack on the motives of the United States by ths Novoe Vremya and Llstok, both papers pretending to see In this move the entrance of tha United States into the quarrel. The Novoe Vremya re marks: "At least America will be an ofren enemy, Which Is preferable to a secret one." The first exchange of views between the Foreign office, Viceroy Alexleff and Baron ds Rosen, the Russian minister to Japan, on the Japanese reply has not resulted In a definite decision. Consequently Russia's answer will be delayed a little longer than anticipated. ' France Will Kot Help Russia. BERLIN. Jan. 80. Th. n.m.n . ment has become privy to the fact that France declines to give Russia any assur ances of aP.ned help should war be the out come or the far eastern differences, even should Great Britain aid Japan. It Is un derstood here that Russia oked Franca to define Its nosltlon In tha mntlnnnn. f Great Britain actively participating In a Japanese attack on Russia and that the French government reDlled that France must remain militarily neutral, as the Rus- sian-rrencn alliance waa quite separate on the question now pending.
