Henry Meld rum. the first to be brought
to trial In this mate of the long Hat of
men for the huge land frauds perpe
trated under the laat adminlatratlon of
the general land office, waa placed 'up
on hie defense thla morning" In the
United States district court.
Meldrum was formerly surveyor-general
of Oregon, and the specific crime
charged against htm la the making of
forged and fraudulent affidavits which
were made the basis of a contract for
the aurvey of public lands. This con
tract be let to his nephew, Rutus ft
When the case waa called before Judge
Bellinger, Meldrum was In court, ac
comanled by hla attorney, George C.
Brownell. United States District Attor
ney John Hall appeared for the govern
ment. A Jury, waa quickly Impanelled
and the Introductory addresses Of the
attorneys ware very brief. Unmoved,
but with the closest attention, Meldrum
followed every step that waa taken, and
hla keen scrutiny of the jurors "as they,
were successively examined upon their
qualifications seemed to betray his
sense of the gravity of the charges
which confront him.
The essence of the government's case
Is the accusation that Meldrum himself
forged the protested affidavits, purport
ing to be made by settlers upon unsur
veyad government lands. The only wit
ness examined during the morning ses
sion wag John W. Rowland, who Is now
chief clerk In the surveyor-general's of

seemed to make a strong Impression
upon the Jury. Again and again aa the

him the alleged forgeries and asked him
to state In whose handwriting they were.

of Henry Meldrum."
"And the signature?" -
"That also Is In Mr. MeMrums hand
writing." The proceedings today are largely do
voted to laying the groundwork for the
government's case. Many papers war
Introduced this morning and Identified
for subsequent US. Mr. Hall explained
to the Jury In hla opening address that
ths forgeries would be established by
th testimony, not only of employes
of the surveyor-general's office, but alao

Washington, Nov. 1. In foar of a
riot or a revolution In the Republic of
Panama, ,the government has ordsrsd
the Pacific squadron to halt at Panama,
and has cabled peremptory orders to
Captain Merriam. commanding the Dixie.
at Colon, to utilise all his forces, includ
ing marinas, In support of th present
government of tbo republic.
Captain Merriam Is also directed to
communicate these orders to the 400
marines on the Isthmus.
The Pacific squadron arrived at Pan
ama yesterday and notloe waa sent to
the commanding officer, Admiral Good
rich, to atay there Until further orders.
This notice ts the result of a request to
the stats depsrtment.
Th statement was given out at th
stat department that there had been an
Incipient revolution against President
Amador of Panama by persons who
wanted to get hold of the balance of the
110,000,000 paid by this government to
Panama, but that tha revolutionists had
been squelched summstily.

No detail of what th reports to th

Two theories are advanced by well in
