STIR UP PANAMA.
American Canal Commissioners
Now York, Oct. 22. A World spec
ial from "Washington says:
"Matters have reached a point where
a strong hand is required to prevent not
only open rupture with Panama but
scandal in connection with the cana
commission. During its short stay on
the isthmus members of -tho commis
sion developed a feud among them
selves, while they were involving the
administration in trouble with Panama
and tho result will be that two or more
of tho commissioners will be asked to
step out as quietly as possible after the
"Ono of the two chief reasons for
sending Secretary Taft to the isthmus
clothed with plenary powers is that he
may fully investigate tho conduct of all
tho commissioners and decide which
ones shall be removed. The immediate
impelling reason for his trip is to re
store friendly relations with Panama.
The president and Secretary Taft have
known all along of the friction between
the commission and Panama and be
tween the commission and Mr. Barrett,
but it was not until Mr. Barrett sub
mitted hiB report on isthmian affairs
that there was any suspicion that some
of the commissioners bad been violat
ing the president's orders. At the
same time, it was revealed by Mr. Bar
tett's report that the isthmians are on
the verge of open revolt, with resort to
arms, against what they regard as the
high-handed and unwarranted actions
of tho canal commission in direct vio
lation of the canal treaty, both in letter
"The president was astounded at the
startling news brought by Mr. Barrett.
He sent for William N. Oiomwell,
counsel for Panama. It was demon
strated by Cromwell that the methods
employed by Admit al Walker and Gen
oral Davis only served to anger the peo
pie of Panama. The extent to which
these commissioners, who are slated for
removal, have offended is not divulged,
but it Is charged that some of them
have Bocrtely conveyed information of
great valne regarding prosective con
tracts to favored firms."
LABOR IS SCARCE.
Louisiana Planters are Trying to
New Orleans, Oct. 21. A great scar
city of labor exists in Louisiana, and
the effect is being felt not only on the
plantations, but also on the extensive
lovee work now in progtess. Forty-
nine state and district contracts outside
of the work being done by the federal
government are under way. They
cover many miles of new levee and re
pair work. Most of these contracts
are required to be finished by January
1, but the contractors are unable to
obtain laborers. Agents of the con
tractors are in tho city seeking hands.
There are also representatives of
planting interests here today to meet
the incoming steamer Lignria with
over 1,500 Italian immigrants. Nono
of these laborers are contracted for,
and the agents of the planters have
come to make terms with them as soon
as they leave the ship. Country ne
groes continue to gravjtato to the city,
and that is given as one of the causes
for the scarcity of labor.
LOST 50,000 MEN.
Japanese Have Suffered Terribly
at Port Arthur.
Chicago, Oct. 22. A special to the
Daily News from Chefoo says:
According to a camp-follower, who
has been for somo timo with tho Japan
ese army now besieging Port Arthur,
and who is at present in Chefoo, hav
ing arrived from Dalny, the number of
Japanese killed before the forts has
reacbol 50,000. Ho says the mikado's
men recklessly attacked the strongest
positions, making bold rushes in mass
es, tho Boldiers being stripped ol their
ac:outrorxenta and clothing. The re
sult was that the Russian niachino guns
mowed them down.
Ho also asserts there 1b some talk
among the officers and men that leads
to the belief that the Japanese mean to
try to carry tbo inner forts and citadel
