President Leaves the Matter
Entirely to Congress,
WILL TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY
Message States Tltat, Althongb Great
SacrlficeK May Be Necessary, the
Panama Water-tray Would In
calculably Benefit Colombia.
"WASHINGTON, June 27. The State
Department has received a dispatch from
Minister Beaupre, at Bogota, saying the
canal discussion has been opened in the
Colombian House by a Representative op
posed to the canal treaty who began by
calling for the documents relating to the.
treaty. The government objected on the
ground that It was not ready to present
the treaty to the House, but would do
so later. The government's position was
sustained by a vote of 3S to 5.
The extra session of Congress for the
discussion of the ratification of the canal
treaty convened on June 20. Joaquin
"Velfz Is president of the Senate, and Jose
Medina Calderon president of the Cham
ber of Deputies.
The following appears in the message of
the President respecting the canal treaty:
"To my government has been presented
this dilemma: Either it lets our sover
eignty suffer detriment, or renounces cer
tain pecuniary advantages to which, ac
cording to the opinion of many, we have
a right. In the first case, to consent to
the sacrifice of our sovereignty, and not
aspiring to a great idemnlflcatlon the Just
wishes of the Inhabitants of Panama a
large portion of Colombia would be satis
fied If the canal were opened, but the gov
ernment would be exposedto the charge
afterwards that it did not defend our sov
ereignty and the Interests of the nation.
"In trie second case, If the canal Is not
opened across Panama the government
will be accused of not having allowed Co
lombia that benefit which is regarded a9
the commencementof our aggrandizement.
I have .already allowed my wish to be
understood, that the canal should be
opened through our territory- I believe
that even at such cost of sacrifices we
ought not to put obstacles In the way of
such a great undertaking, because it is
an Immensely beneficial enterprise for
the country, and also because, once the
canal is opened by the United States, our
relations will become more Intimate and
extensive, while our Industry, commerce
and wealth will gain Incalculably.
"I leave the full responsibility for the
decision of this matter for Congress. I
do not Intend to make my opinion weigh
when I have given instructions to our
representative at "Washington; it has been
coupled with the order that the decision
of this Important matter must be left for
Qongress. After years. In which the
question has been treated In a vague way,
without precise conditions. It Is now pre
sented In a way to obtain practical and
positive results. It has been our Indis
putable triumph that the Senate and the
Government of the United States should
declare, notwithstanding every effort to
the contrary, the superiprlty of the Colom

KANSAS CITY. Mo.. June 27. The Em

of nearly SO00, Including most of the
business men of Kansas City, has start

oppose the eight-hour law now enforced
by the city administration, as well as the
ordinance requiring an applicant for an

who followed, pointed out
the enormous cost Involved, nearly S2o,ow,-

the law of 1S01 be checked. The faenate
decided to discuss the law In detail, thus
constituting a partial check to the gov

measure as a whole.
The .reappearance of M. Waldeck-Rous-
seau aroused intense Interest, and his op
position to the policy of his successor a3
president of the Council created a dis
tinct sensation. His speech, Immediately
following that of Premier Combes, em

The last mentioned was the subject of

speech, supported strongly the necessity
for lay schools, and denied the claims
that the establishment of such schools

M. "Waldeck-Rousseau spoke with much
vehemence. Referring to the law of 1901,

accused could not be held.
Final Pleas of Lawyers.
F. P. Mays, who also appeared for the
defense, said that If a crime had -been
committed against the Government, it
was by the homestead entrymen and their
witnesses, who had given assumed names
in each of the six final proofs In question.
and thus imposed on Miss Ware, who, he
declared, was their innocent victim. Pos
itively nothing had been developed which
connected Mr. McKlnley with the fraud
in even the most remote degree. He de
clared that the Government's efforts had
failed absolutely, and that nothing re
mained but to discharge the defendants.
Mr. Hall closed for the Government in
. a. forcible and dramatic speech, which oc
cupled a quarter of an hour. He said the
case in question was a conspiracy to se
cure valuable timber lands for specula
tive purposes by covering them up with
alleged homestead entries. The lands not
only were not subject to homestead, but
the men purporting to make such entries
had no existence, and were the fictions
of McKlnley. and that Miss Ware execut
ed fraudulent proof papers, .forged the
names of claimants and witnesses and
acknowledged the same, all at the dicta
tlon of McKlnley. r

interrupted to ask if the intention of the
Government was not to- give the public
domain to settlers. "Yes, the Govern
ment is willing and ready to. give it

At the close of Mr. Hall's speech. Com
missioner Sladen rendered his decision.
which was as follows:

Frank Mclntyre, by Mr. Jennings, by all the
witnesses who have lived where these entry
men are said to iave lived. They testify that
they never saw nor heard of. any one of
these persons and that no such Improvements
exist on the land as are described In the final
proofs. They aiso swear that the topography
of the country Is such that no such Improve

Handwriting Expert Testifies.
The morning session was devoted to the
testimony of John A. Wesco, uuy iiua
and. Clyde Lloyd-
Mr. Wesco's examination had to ao en
tirely with expert testimony as to the
signatures on homestead applications and
proofs, and certain interlineations in a
deed offered in evidence.
He was shown the signature of Robert
Simnson attached to the deed to a tract
of land transferred to Edwin Hotoson,
alone with the writing of Horace G. Mo
Klnley, Miss Marie Ware and Clyde
Lloyd, and asked to give his opinion as to
who made certiln Interlineations. Mr.
"Wesco, after an examination that lasted
several minutes, said that the interline,
atlons appeared to be those of McKlnley.
On examining the reputed homestead ap
plication of James E. Warwick, wltn
Droofs and affidavits attached, Mr. Wesco
gave It as his opinion that Miss Ware had
signed tho names purporting to be those
of the applicant and witnesses. The same
was the case with all the applications
and other papers submitted for examina
tion. The signatures all appeared to him
to have been written by Miss Ware.
Only In one Instance was Mr. Wesco not
sure as to tho Identity of the signature,
and that was with relation to that of
Georxe E. Thompson.
As for the others, Tupman, Warwick,
Carlson, Heme and Watklns, he was mor
ally sure, from the standpoint of an ex
pert offering expert testimony, that the
writing, was that of Miss Ware. It was
evident, Mr. Wesco said, from the slml
larlty noticeable between several letters,
denoting In appreciable measure a same
ness of movement In fashioning the let
Guy Huff, a distinguished bartender, of
Eugene, who wears white socks and has
all the hall marks of a village cut-up,
was next called. The prosecution couldn't
do much with Mr. Huff, and Attqrney
Hall seemed glad to let loose, although he
was a Government witness. The- defense
showed him marked consideration, h6w
ever, and questioned him not at all. His
testimony had something to do with the
signing of names to homestead appllca
tlons. but he denied signing any but his
own. He asserted that he and Mr. Mc
Klnley had not fallen out, and that there
fore Mr. McKlnley had done no wrong so
far as he knew.
Clyde Lloyd, who picked up- the hot end
and shows some animus toward Miss
Ware and McKlnley, was recalled for a
short time and testified further concern
ing the relations of himself and McKln
ley. With his testimony the Government
rested its case, and an adjournment was
taken until 2 o'clock.
The action of Commissioner Sladen is
regarded as a great victory for Special
Inspector Greene and United States At
torney Hall. Mr. Greene has worked for
months In unearthing land frauds In Ore
gon, and to his ceaseless and untiring ef
forts the commitment of Miss Ware and
McKlnley is largely due, as the evidence
against them was secured by him. The
case was admirably conducted by Mr,
Hall, and his reputation as a prosecutor
has been greatly enhanced by this victory.
He feels well satisfied with the result, and
is confident that the defendants will be
indicted by the grand Jury.
Both Miss Ware and Mr. McKlnley re
fuse to discuss the situation, but their
attorneys seem sanguine of establishing
their Innocence, should the case go to the
The matter will come before the grand
Jury early In October, and, should a true
bill be returned against the defendants.
the case will be tried before Judge Bel
linger and the petit Jury. In the mean
time, the principals will be at liberty un
der their bonds.
The Federal officers are greatly elated
over the advantage gained, as this state.
according to their statements, Is a hotbed
of land fraud and corruption, and the fate
of Miss Ware and Mr. McKlnley will have
a wholesome effect on other speculators.
