In Connection with Panama-Ths Pres
ident's Panama Message a
WASiiiNaTon, Dec 7, 1904.
On the 6th inst,, before a crowded
Senate, Senator Lodge of Mass., made
a long ami rather tiehnical speech de
fending tne President's action in con
nection with PanHma. He spent much
time and cited many authorities, from
interrational law. from the dicta of
former secretaries of state, and from de
cisions of the Supreme Court, to sua.
tain the proposition, that it iB tlie func
tion of the Executive, as provided for
in the Constitution, to receive ministers
from other countries and thus recog
nize the da. facto government. When
this is to be done is a mere matter of
Btate policy, and the President is to de-1
cido. Mr. Lodge said all the world
knew a revolution was impending in
Panama; he read about it while in Lon
don, and of course all this information'
flowed in upon the President, and he
did not exceed his duty in taking prompt
measures to protect American citizens
and interests -trnd prevent bloodshed.
Only one man, paid Mr. Lodge, was
killed "the unfortunate and inevitable
Chinaman" who was struck by a Col
ombian shell while in his bed. This !b
not a party issue he contended, and he
charged hit opponents with "hating the
sinner and embracing the sin." Secre
tary Hay was eulogized ; and the pre
diction made that future historians
would give a high place to Preeident
Roosevelt for opening the gateway be
tween the two oceans. He admitted
that men from his section of the coun
try New England opposed the Louis-
ania purchase, bnt said they were mis :
taken. When charged with incons.st
ency in voting for the Cuban resolution
declaring the people of that island "free
and independent," the Maes. Senator
said that in hie opinion it was a small
matter whether a man was consistent')!
The President's message of explana
tion and defense in reference to I ai araa
was a very long document and gave a
circumstantial account of what took
place from his point of view. It waB re
garded by the Republicans as a complett
vindication, but did not convince the
Democrats. The gut of the whole matter
is: Was there a revolution of the people
of the department of Panama, and was
there a government of any kind at tne
lime independence was acknowledged
by the President? The discussion of 'his
question may continue a week or more
before a vote ib reached on the treaty.
Not much new or important l gielation
is expected at this session of Congress.
The usual appropriation bills will be
passed, the PeDsion heading the list.
The Panama treaty will be rifled with
votes to spare J Gen. Wood will receive
bis promotion ; and the probabilities
are that Reed Smoot.senator from Utah,
will be allowed to hold down his seat.
Both patties are looking for iseueB which
will give them political capital for the
coming Presidential campaign. - Owing
to the falling off of ciiBtomB receiptt ai.d
internal revenue, economy will be the
watchward. The subjects of irrigation
and pure food will receive some atten
tion. It is possible that four new states
may be admitted to the Union. A civil
pension list is talked of, but has no
chance at present. The status of Mor
monism ip likely to be discussed. Bills
Cave been introduced to amend the emi
gration laws, for which there is pressing
need ; to create a bureau of good roads
which is sensible ; to provide for the
promotions in the army aB a reward for
notable services; and to build a
palace for the departments of State and
The unusually cold wave swept over
the country the fir-it week in January
covered Washington with a sheet of
glare ice about an inch thick, which re
mained intact for a number of days.
The result was new and pictureque; the
broad avenues, the wide 6treets, and
the parks became Bkating ponds, crowd
ed with all conditions of men and
women; safe walking was well nighim
possible, and in time the town was cov
ered with ashes as if a small Mt Pelee
eruption had taken place. The mercury
reached zero, and there was much suf
fering among the poor-
The Chicago fire has called forth a re
solution of deep sympathy from the
House of Representatives, while the
Senate has passed a resolution ordering
the District Commissioners to inspect
all places of amusement in Washington
and report. A modern fire alarm system
is to be installed in the White House at
once and the employes of that mansion,
something like 150, are to be drilled as a
fire brigade. There was a rumor that
the Preiident would do the drilling, but
this is unlikely.
Dr. Wiley, chemist, after feeding a
number of youngmen some months upon
food prepared with salicyic acid, has
abandoned the experiment for the pre
sent, Bince it baa been demonstrated
that such food seriously injures the
health. One man may claim that this
peculiar food cured him of 'heumatism .
Food prepared with borax also proved
to be unhealthy. 'I leel as if my in
sides I ad been tanned with the staff,"
was the way one of the subjects express
A Representative in Congress from
Mont, has opened tbe Chinese question
He wants the government to build a wire
fence along tbe Canadian boundary to
keep the Chinese out. Of course the
wires are to 6e kept alive with electric
it,. The very wise optimistic Secretary of
Agriculture says no panic iB possible in
this c uiuy so long as tne farmer Cfn
pr. dure gocd and saleable crops. Our
surplus crops sold abroad last year
amounted to $S78,000,000. He adds
that the state of Iowa alone sent sixty
millions of dollars in 1Q03 'o Canada to
puicbatf grpzii g and farming lands.
But panics have taken place without re
gard to the condition of the crops ; there
is little coi Tu ction between them.

A WORD TO FARM TOILERS.

The Home Friend of the
Farmer and His Family.
After the labors and toils of the summer time,
and harvesting of crops in the early autumn,
many of our farmers, their wives, daughters,
and sons, find themselves in a condition of
health demanding careful attention if suffering
is to be avoided later on. Many experience
kidney trouble in some form; with some the
I liver is torpid; there is biliousness, nausea, and
vomiting, with loss of appetite and depression
of spirits. Thousands who have been exposed
j to cold, damp winds and rains while toiling in
the harvest fields, now feel the twinges ol
terrible rheumatism; others run down bj
worry, overwork, and irregular dieting, are
tormented with the pangs of dyspepsia.
lo the thousands or run down, sickly, and
half dead men and women in farm homes w8

the blood which cause rheumatism; it feeds
the weak and diseased nerves and banishes
neuralgic tortures; it purifies the blood and

lishing of a perfect physical vigor to withstand
the rigors of a severe winter.
