NEW YORK, Jan. 21.-More than four hundred members and guests of the Hol land society of New York tonight attended an annual dinner at the Waldprf-Astorla. The toasts Included "Peace," William J. Bryan; "Holland, Our Ally In the Revo lution," Rev. George C. Lorlmer; "The Friendly Relations of the Dutch With Other Nations," Sir Chen Tung Liang Chang; "Our Herov Ancestors," James M. Beck. President Theodore Banta delivered the opening address and proposed tha toast of the president, which was drunk stand ing. John V. Vrooman read a letter of regret from President Roosevelt, who Is one of tha oldest members of the society. Sir Yeng Tung Chang was loudly ap plauded. He said: I have always thought the respect for ancestors was a peculiar trait of Chinese character. It la the result of Confucius teaching. But who would expect such a sentiment to prevail to any extent In a country like America? This Is a land for self-made men, who, as a rule, regard an cestry as a matter of secondary considera tion. The achievements of the Dutch In the cause of political freedom and re ligious toleration, In commerce, In sci ence and in art have been various and splendid. Indeed, any nHtlon might be proud of such a long succession of great soldiers, statesmen, national philosophers and painters as the Dutch have given the world. .

Consequently he met with a ready response from every government. This is a long step towards the ultimate abolition of war. William J. Bryan said: Since my visit to the Netherlands, my thoughts have been dwelling much upon the important part that that Tittle nation Is destined to take In the movement that haa for Its object the euhstltulon of reason for force in the settlement of differences be tween nations. It is fitting that the temple of peace should stand upon the ground that was the scene of an eighty years' conflict, and I am glad that an American cltlsen has so generously provided for Its con struction. " We must Jiot expect all armies to be dis banded at Once, or look for the Immediate settlement of all questions by arbitration.

UNITED STATES DUTY BOUND TO ACT resident Did Right Thins; at Right Time and Ills Act Stnnds Forth s the Greatest of His Cnreer. WASHINGTON, Jan. a.-8enator Piatt of Connecticut concluded his speech on Pa nama today. He defended the course of the president throughout the Panama re- olt and eulogised the executive policy as fearless. During the morning Mr. Morgan spoke in explanation of hla bill for the an nexation of Panama to the United States, basing his argument on the ground that the pending canal treaty contemplated that result. Mr. Piatt defended the president against the charge of committing nn act of war, or even an act of intervention, denying that his acts In connection with the Pa nama revolt amounted to either. He said: It ts easy to make charges and to talk In an excited way. We want specifications, ana u is lime tor senators wno lalK or ins act of war and of Intervention to tell us what an a.'t of war Is and what act of the president In this case amounts to war or Intervention. It Is acts of which we sre speaking, and we sre not concerned with tvhtt the president thinks or wants. One thing about the president was that the pcoplu telieved him honest; that he waa a man who did what he believed to be right. Mr. Piatt said that our Tights on the Isthmus were tuperlor to those of any treaty. He said President Roosevelt . had the same constitutional right to-send ships and land marines in Panama to protect American Interests and American lives and property as President McKinley had to send troops to Peking for the relief of the American legation. Mr. Piatt held that independently of the treaty of 1846 the United States had the right to protect transit across the Isthmus, even against Colombia. Indeed, we were bound not only to protect cur own Interests On tho Isthmus, but that of tho civilised world. ' . . If. he said, the president had not taken the steps he did the protests we now hold would have been a mere scepter compared witn tne storm we would nave nearo. The act of Colonel Black In raising the flag of the Panama nnt Inn was defended oh the ground that he was engaged at the time In. civilian duty and raised the flag after the new government was formed There would be, he added, no difficulty In accepting the theory of good faith In those matters If senators wanted a canal at Pan ama and did not want It at Nicaragua. "I want a canal at Panama," responded Mr. Tillman, "If we don't have to steal." To this expression Mr. Piatt took excep tion as unworthy of a gentleman. Senator Piatt spoke briefly of the doctrine of "in ternational eminent domain," but said that tho phrase was a misnomer, as there was no question of domain Involved. But, he added, there is reason for savins inai u me people owning tne strip ol land across which the world haa said there should be an interoneanlc canal, hedge about difficulties, strike for more monev and hold up negotiations, the United States, ir tne canai cannot be Dunt in any other way, will build It with a strong army and the message of the president was entirely Justified on that point. Etpeaking of the president's recognition of the new republic, Mr. Piatt said: The act Hands out as that of a brave and tearless man; as that of a man who is r, either rash nor Impetuous. He did the right thing at the right time, the thing which will Insure the building of the canal which has been long delayed. Wa will ratify the treaty; we will build the canal: and, when, the ships of . the whule world with their caraoea are traversing It, these criticisms, these attacks, these vitupera tions, will be forgotten, and whatever Mr. Roosevelt may do in the present or any other term of ofllce, this act will stuud forth as the greatest of his career. Mr. Tillman was recognised to read the Oatend manifest and the comment made on it by the republican platform of 1856. He contended that the policy of the present administration was "that might makes right." BLAIR IN HIS OWN DEFENSE Accused Tells Story Somewhat Dif ferent from Other Witnesses In the Case. YORK, Neb., Jan. 21.-(Speolal.) Whee It was known that John Blair, the de fendant in the celebrated assault snd ab duction case, was to testify, hundreds of his neighboring farmers and friends came from Arborvllle to attend court and hear his testimony. He told of his first acquaintance with the Thomases years ago and the friendly re lations between them and his family. He told that the relations between .Beulah Thomas and himself were only such as neighbors and friends, and that at no time had there ever been any criminal rela tions, denying that he ever committed an assault upon the person of Miss Thomas. On cross-examination by the attorneys for the prosecution Mr. Blair was either made to testify, or forgetting, did testify to events, their time and place, much dif ferent from some of his own witnesses and also witnesses of ths prosecution. His de nial was at variance with that of Miss Thomas. Blair claims that Miss Thomas is much abused by her parents and that she was compelled to testify against him at the preliminary hearing by threats of her mother, and that he was perfectly Innocent of any of the charges. In his testimony he told of all his connections with the abduction of Miss Thomas In No vember. He stated that h had requested hla hired man, Mr. Bice, to go to the place and at the time appointed to meet Miss Thomas. He told him where she would be and that he had previously made the appointment with her. He stated that Bice found Miss Thorns s there and took her to a farmer's house, Anderson's, living s, few miles west of, Arborvllle, where sh THAT MIME There's may bad AIM stayed for a few days and left, owing to the sickness of Mrs. Anderson. John Blair testified that he went there and brought Miss Thomas to his home, and that they arrived there about 12 o'clock. He denied holding Miss Thomas on his lap, and stated that while Miss Thomas was in Ma home she was sick and confined to her bed for a week, and that he had gone to her room and given her medloine. This was contrary to the testimony of Miss Thomas, who claims that while she was at Blair's she waa not sick. John Blair, in his testimony, also explained why the Beatrice bloodhounds did not work or could not take the trail of Miss Thomas. He stated that when he heard that Mr. Thomas was to send for the hounds he bought some cayenne pepper and had Bice put It on the trail that he and Miss Thomas had made coming from the Thomas residence. He stated that he knew of course why the dogs could not follow. He explained the best he knew how as to the events and places In which he was accused of being with Miss Thomas. TAKES FATAL DOSE OF POISON Farmhand nt Hooper Stricken While In Depot nnd Dies Inside of Few Minutes. FREEMONT, Neb., Jan. 21. (Sperial.) A. Frank Krueger, a farm hand who has been working for J. H. Meyer, committed suicide by taking strychnine this after noon. Krueger quit work today and this afternoon came to Hooper with Meyer, who paid him off. He then went Into a saloon and called for a beer. Some of those in the saloon noticed that he put something into the glass before drinking it. One noticed something peculiar about his appearance. He left the saloon and started .towards the depot. A party who met him says that he was staggering, but naturally supposed he had only been drink ing a little too much. He went Into the waiting room of ths depot and sat down. The operator says he noticed that Krueger was frothing at the mouth, but paid little attention to him. Abou six minutes later a section hand came In and saw the un fortunate man writhing on the floor in convulsions and at once summoned a phy sician, who was unnble to give him any relief, and he died a few minutes later at about six o'clock. An empty bottle which had contained strychnine was found In his pocket, together with quite a sum of money. He was about 25 years of age. A brother of his lives at St. Paul, Minn. No reason is known for the act. He was not a man of very strong mind and at times was considered a little off. When he left Meyer he said he was going to West Point. He had worked around Hooper for some time. SHOP OF FIREMAN BURNS While President of State Association Is Attending; Meeting He Hears of Loss. NORFOLK, Neb., Jan. 21. (Special Tele gram.)

The report of the secretary showed a membership of $78 In twenty-two different states. The tariff league unanimously adopted an ad- , dress, "To the Protectionists of the United States." The address says: It may he that considerations of sentl mpnt or even party expediency seem to ' party managers wiser guides In some par ticular emergency than rlirid adherence to the natlonnl policy of protection. It mny , be that a party organlratlon can take thit View and act on It without Injury to Itself, but such a course can no more he pursued by an organisation dedicated to the cause of protection than an Individual can depart fr m the line of rectitude In order to benefit other.

With a foreign trade segregating $1,500, OOn.mK) and steadllv growing It would reem that we are already getting a fair share of the world's traffic. But it must not bo for gotten that our internal trade reaches $.10. 0n0.0on.000 yearly. To the care and preser vation of the great home market, with Its trade of ISrt.onu.OOO.ooO, protection stands es pecially committed. In annual meeting assembled, we reaffirm the position taken by the tariff league, adopted on January IS, 1903, and declare: That reciprocity In competitive products Is , unsound In principle, pernicious In praswice -and condemned hv experience. It is w.n trary alike to the national policy of pro tection, to the fair treatment of domestlo Froducers and .to friendly relations with oreign countries. HYMENEAL."" Renda-Menna.
