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
"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
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
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

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.

HOUSE PASSES PURE FOOD ACT
Fizfi Standards at Esrardi Purity.
Etringth and Character.
WILLFUL INTENT CLAUSE IS ELIMINATED
On Section of Hll Provides Penalties
for Adulterations and Mlsbrnnded
Goods and for Punishment
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

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
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
. 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

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

French government reDlled that France
must remain militarily neutral, as the Rus-
