Washington, May 24, 1001.
In sentencing Rev. L. D. Bass to pay
a flue of flOOO and to serve three year
in prison, for fraudulent use of the
wails, in connection with the "Bureau
of Civil Service Instruction" and a
"Union Teacher's Agency," Justice Bar
naul, of the Supreme Court of tho Dis
trict of Columbia, addressed a few words
to the prisoner, which are equally
applicable to all educated crooks. He
said: "You have had sll the advan
tages of family, education, religious
training, and the position of a minister
of the gospel ; you have had experience
among many different classes of society
in different states; and there was no ex
cuse for you to undertake the fraudu
lent methods and schemes shown by the
evidence in this case, to rob the credu
lous, unwary and inexperienced. You
could have made an honest living, and
given value for every dollar received,
had you not conceived the idea of get
ting something for nothing, under the
pretense of performing a service for
others. You went to work shrewdly
and systematically to deceive people
and to make them counno in your hon
esty, wisdom and power, by so mixing
up truth with falsehood as to pass it all
off for genuine. You well knew, as I
must believe from the evidence, that
you were not able to make good such
representations, and that they were all
made only to induce your victims to
send you their money, You were not
sincere in these widely circulated state
ments, and you have succeeded in de
priving many struggling and honest per
sons of the money that was needed by
them for the necessaries of life."
The Isthmian Canal question was
again brought to the front by the return
to Washington cf Senor Corea, the Nica
ragua minister, who called at the De
partment of State and announced that
hi was authorized by his government to
sign a treaty for the construction of the
Nicaragua Canal with United States.
After his call at the Department of
State, Senor Corea said: "I come back
with full powers, even to the extent of
signing a treaty with the United Status.
My government is willing to give thif
country the most liberal terms possible
to assist in the construction of a canal
through our territory. Of course, it is
impossible for us to concede to the
United States sovereignty over the lands
upon which to build a water way, but
we are willing to give the United States
the fullest control short of that. Presi
dent Zelaya and the other officers of my
government are perfectly satisfied with
the terms of the protocol, signed by my
self and the representatives of Costa
Rica, with Secretary Hay, last war.
We hold that that protocol is still bind
ing. Hi-? fact that it is based on the
Hay-Pauncefote treaty, which has
lapsed, does iwt, in our opinion, invali
date tilt; binding nature of the docu
ment Thia being the case, we hold
that there is no chance for tho Colom
bian government to com'? in and that
thft Panama Canal is barred from con
sideration. The signing of the protocol
by the United States, in our opinion,
commits the Unit 1 Mates government
t ) the Nicaragua route. Even if this
were not so, we have every confidence
that the United States, of the two
routes, would prefer to build the Nica
ragua Canal, 'uecuuso the h.ry of the
discovery of this route lielongs to an
American, it would be constructed with
American machinery, and the money
spent would come back to the United
States " Evidently Senor Corea and
his government know of the activity ol
those interested in creating seutimert
i.i this country in favor ut the Panama
Canal, and are trying to counteract it.
When the enormous transactions of
th-UiiiWd States government are con
sidered the amount lost by defalcation
does not seem large. According to o!li
c.ial fi'.'ii'es. recently compiled in the
Treasury Department, the total defalca
tions of Federal officials, from the found
in' f the government to the present
time amounted to $10,000,000. The
1'ost Oliico Department has been the
y.o'st sufferer of' any branch of the gov
ernment, prohihly because it necessarily
'..Hers moio opportunity for theft.
