Diplomats on Isthmus of Panama

Washington, Oct. 0. Uhllo has

which havo been holding hack to await
tho outcomo of the diplomatic tost caso
will do tho same. Tho result will be
that practically all the foreign diplo
mats on tho isthmus will bo accredited
to this country instead of Panama.
Chile some timo ago applied for an
equattim for Groonimo Osso, who wbb
appointed consul at Panama. The re
quest was withhold, owing to the, un
settled condition of affairs. Though
uiiH country exorcises iuii control over
thu canal zone, tho land belongs to
Panama. Today tho secretary of stato
disposed of the question by issuing the
exequatur, but instead of being In the
regular form It is a notification to Gen

Washington, Oct. 4. Postmaster
General Payno Is still allvo, but only
as thu result of thu injection of tho
moBt powerful drugs known to tho med
ical profession. Frcnuonl sinkinir
spoils marked tho day yesterday, and
his condition ia decided) worsg this
morning than it was 24 hours ago.
Thu physicians express not tho slightest
hopo for his recovery, and during the
night possessed so little confidence that
their distinguished patient could live
through until morning that at mid
night bulletins wore issued predicting
dissolution within n fow minutes, and
at 2 o'clock this morning they placed
tho limit at two hours at tho outside,
with tho probability that every moment
would be tho lust.
General Payno, after spending the
forepart of the night in n quiet sleep,
was so I zed at midnight witli n sinking
spoil votso than any that had preced
ed It. Powerful restorutlvoB adminis
tered in larger quantities than thereto
fore given produced not tho slluhtest
apparent effect, and tho inemliers of
thu family weru hastily summoned to
the bedsido.
Two hours Intor n niessngo was rc
colved from tho bedsido that thu gener
al was still nlivu, but nil hopo had been
abandoned. Tho physicians nfusod to
statu how long their patient could sur
vive, but statud that while ho might
livo for two hours, on tho othor hand,
the end might come nt tho next mo
ment. After administering tho stimu
lants at midnight, thu physicians dis
continued the use of drugs, and thero
altur allowed nature to take its course.
Shortly after half past two, tho pa
tlont showed signs of reviving, and a.
few seconds later ho complotely re
gained consciousness, and exclaimed
"Hello'' to thoso about him. Dr. Ma
grudur asked him how ho was feeling
and received the reply "first rate."
Milk was then given him to drink.
Shortly alter 4 o'clock. General
Payne's prlvato secretary Issued a bul
