he will take in her ca&e. -This -afternoon,
after a long: conference ivith Mr.

Patterson's counsel was compelled;'tobear
to the girl ia the Tombs the disappoint

in prison for at least a week longer. The

At least two bondsmen are said to be
ready to give bail in any reasonable
amount and counsel for' Miss Patterson
say the surety will be provided without
delay as soon as the District Attorney
expresses a willingness to accept 1L. Mr.
Jerome issued the following statement:

Mr. Jerome promised that he would take up
the matter at the earliest possible moment and
give it his fullest attention. Ho will then
etate what courec will be taken. I am bound,
until he disposes of the matter, to take no
further action and will not make any move
until that tlm. Mr. Jerome has now to de
cide whether to admit her to ball or discharge
her ion her own recognizance; dlsmies the
lndlrtmf.nt against her. or again place her
on trial. I have no doubt that Mr. Jerome
will speedily decide.
.Mr. Levy received a letter which had
been sent In the mail to Mrs. J. B. Pat
terson, Nan Patterson's mother, at Wash
ington. D. Cj, in which Miss Patterson's
life was threatened. The letter says in

Mr. Levy said that If the letter had not
been written by a crank he would re

evidently was written by a man who
knew the name of Xan Patterson's father,
who has been known throughout the trial
as 'J. Randolph Patterson," but whose
real name is John' Bartlett Patterson.

Shipment by Panama Now Is
Slow and Expensive.
Report to the president
Ratcsjby. Government Railroad Must
Be Very Low to Orfsct iioss
in Handling: the Goods
SAX FRANCISCO, May $. A matter of
creat commercial Imnortanro to the Pa
clnc Coast is discussed in a report that
has been prepared for the information of
President Roosevelt. Secretary Taft, of
the War Departments and J. I. Bristow, a
special Commissioner appointed by Presi
dent Roosevelt to visit this Coast and ac
quire facts. The question refers to the
utility of the Panama route for the move
ment of freight between San Francisco
and the Atlantic States. The report was
submitted ty W. R. Wheeler. "W, J. Dut
ton and Rufus P. Jennings. It was adopt
ed by the trustees of the Chamber ot
Commerce and forwarded to "Washington
in printed form by the chamber.
The chamber finds that "there is really
but one object to be obtained, and that is
the adoption of such a course as will
make the Panama route more advan
tageous for the movement of freight than
under the conditions heretofore existing."
The report says:
"The present freight schedule via Pan
ama Is apparently based on the overland
railroad freight schedoie. the charges of
tne former varying from 7S to SO per cent,
with an average of about 8? per cent of
the latter: In other words, the differen
tials in favor of the Panama route, with
its 2-J-day trip as compared with the
transcontinental route with its H-day
trip, are so small that the shipper either
East or West does not consider the sav
ing sufficient to cover the risk of dam
age or breakage in the necessary several
handlings of the goods via Panama.
"Under government ownership of the
Panama Railroad and the sea route to
New York from Colon, the only question
to be considered would be whether the
freight rates could be made sufficiently
low to make the saving on transportation
expense an object to the shipper and
enough to offset the additional time re
quired In transit.

route caanot be utilized with advantage

TARIFF REVISION REVIVED
Dcricit Makes It Live Issue-r-Who
Is to Blame?
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington," May 5. Congress may not revise
the tariff at the next session, but there
Is bound to be a great deal of tariff talk
in the Senate and House next Winter,
and this talk may lead to action. Six
months ago the anti-revisionists, the
stand-patters, as they are called, felt
very safe. When there was threat of
tariff, legislation last Wlnter.ythese men
cot tosrether. made a firm stand against
what was believed to be the attitude of
the Administration, the tariff revision
flurry passed over, and nothing was done.
But there have been rather Impressive
developments of late that tend to alarm
the stand-patters, and they arc begin
ning to wonder whether they can with
stand another assault. First and fore
most among the reasons that wilt be
presented why the tariff should be re
vised will be the enormous and growing,
deficit in the Treasury. It cannot be de
nied that the annual expenditures of the
Government are away In excess of the
receipts- and. were It not for the depos
its that have been made with National
banks, the situation would Indeed be se
rious. It is variously estimated that the
Treasury deficit will amount to' .ew.
KA tn M9.0G0.tO0 at the close of the pres
ent fiscal year. By June . J905 it Is
estimated that the deficit will have grown
to xK.eee.fttt to SMSw,m. unless some
thing iff done In, the meantime to check
And while this deficit is causing alarrn
party leaders are looking abot for some
one to Maine. Congress heaps the blame
on the executive departments: secretary'
Shaw places the Nms en Congress.

ORDINARY DOSE, A Wineglassful Before Breakfast.
The good effects of Apenta Water are maintained by smaller,
and steadily diminishing doses, repeated for successive days"
right to expend more money than has
actually been appropriated for their use.
Last year the Treasury estimatas called
for total appropriations amounting to
565&.00O.OCO and over. Congress actually
appropriated J30.000.CCO less than this
amount, yet, at the end of the year. Sec
retary Shaw asked for a deficiency appro
priation of $33,000,000.. representing
amounts which had been expended in ex
cess of the expenditures authorized by
("ongres?. That excess, which is more
than equal to the present Treasury defi
cit, was created by department officials
without any authority whatever. If the
new law is observed, thers will be no
such deficit nest recr.
But Mr. Shaw, after asking for a defi
ciency appropriation greater than the def
icit, blames Congress for the deficit, be
cause Congress voted money to actually
pay the bills which had been unlawfully
contracted by Government officials. The
new law, if enforced, will work a hard
ship in some Instances; it will tend to
rigid economy in all departments, and
will curtail many useless expenditures.
Perhaps, by cutting- off excess expendi
tures, the deficit may be largely reduced,
but not entirely wiped out. There will
still be enough deficit to form the basis
of tariff talk.
But. aside from the question of the
deficit. It Is noted that Germany will
repudiate her trade agreement with the
United States, and Newfoundland Is en
acting tariff legislation detrimental to
this Government, because we would not
enter into a reciprocity treaty with her.
Probably before Congress convenes other
facts will present themselves. While all
this does not necessarily means that the
tariff will be revised In a way to pro
vide more revenue, the subject will be
brought prominently to the front, and,
next to railroad-rate legislation, will be
the foremost topic of debate next Winter.
