INTERRUPTED IN A
Charge of Perjury In Panama
New York, Oct. 10.—The inquiry late
the Panama cana! discrimination
charges was temporarily Interrupted
in a sensational manner wheu William

publicly accused Spencer Miller, a
representative of the Lldgerwood com

Brigadier General Garllngton, who
is conducting the inquiry, rapped re
peatedly for order, but there was so
much commotion in the room that he
could not make himself heard.
"There is only one side of this thing
being heard anyway," shouted Brothers
over the din. "There is no use of my
talking. You don't want to hear the
truth. I will withdraw."

The inquiry by General Garlington,
inspector general of the army, has
been in progress in the army building
here for several days It was begun
for the purpose of looking Into the
merits of the charges of discrimina
tion by the canal commissioners in
awarding a contract for cableways on
the isthmus, which had been preferred
by William A. Brothers. Mr. Brothers,
who is president of the Balanced Ca
ble Crane company of New York, al
leged that the isthmian canal com
mission in issuing specifications for
cablewayB bad discriminated against
his company and that improper meth

him from receiving the award.

eral director of the Panama canal
work, and several other army officers
and engineer* already have testified
before the inspector general. Colonel
Goethals, in his testimony, said that
for good and sufficient reasons the
specifications were so drawn that Mr.
Brothers could not bid. He said the
cable device offered by Mr. Brothers
was believed to be imperfect and that
the commission could not afford to ex
periment with it.
