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

splendid. Indeed, any nHtlon might be
proud of such a long succession of great
soldiers, statesmen, national philosophers

UNITED STATES DUTY BOUND TO ACT
resident Did Right Thins; at Right
Time and Ills Act Stnnds Forth
s the Greatest of His
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
