An Associated Press dispatch says:
The senate adopted a resolution call
ing on President x'aft to submit to
it all the correspondence with Co
lombia dealing with the acquisition
of the Pananal canal zone by the
United States. The resolution was
offered by Senator Hitchcock of Ne
braska, who urged its adoption in a
speech in which he charged Former
President Roosevelt with participa
tion in a conspiracy to foment the
revolution by which Panama was lost
to Colombia and the canal zone be
came the property of this country.
There was no division of the vote
for adoption. "The conspiracy which
resulted in the dismemberment of
the Colombian republic occurred in
the United States, with the approval
of the highest United States officials
and the spoliation was largely in the
interest of a combination of influen
tial capitalists who controlled the
French Panama Canal company," de
clared senator Hitchcock. From
this he said he expected the people
would know "whether we are honest
and just and whether the time has
not come wnen we should act the
part of decency, if not generosity,

A decision by the executive com
mittee of the American bar associa
tion to oust William H. Lewis, a ne
gro and an assistant attorney general
nf the United States from member
ship in the association has aroused
Attorney General Wickersham to the
defense of his assistant. In a spirited
letter sent to each of the 4,700 mem
bers of the association the attorney
general charges the executive com
mittee with an arrogance of power
unwarranted by the body's constitu
tion, in order to gratify a race pre
judice entertained by some of its
The attorney general points out
that Lewis was elected after he had
been regularly nominated and invited
to join by the secretary of the asso
ciation. He calls attention to the
fact that the committee which
elected Lewis went out of office and
was succeeded by another committee
containing two new members. It
was the new committee containing
the new members, he said, which
"The object of the association,"
the attorney general continues, "is
stated in the constitution to be 'to
advance the science of jurisprudence,
promote tho administration of jus
tice, uphold the honor of the pro
fession of the law and encourage
cordial intercourse among the mem
bers of the American bar.' "
"Any person fulfilling certain re
quirements," Mr. Wickersham adds,
is engiDie ror membership."
ine action of the executive com
mittee, he declares, can hardly be
considered to tend to "uphold the
honor of th profession of the law and
encourage cordial intercourse among
tho members of the bar. It certainly
does not tend to promote the ad
ministration of justice."
Mr. Wickersham enclosed "with
eacli letter a postal card addressed
to George Whitlock, secretary of the
American bar association, protesting
against the committee's action and
requesting its revocation. He asked
each member disapproving of the
course to sign the card.

un January 24, the attorney
general wrote to Mr. Whitelock:
I am especially moved to make
this protest, because Mr. Lewis is
an assistant attorney general of the
umtuu states, holding, as I do, tho
???miaS?n of the President of tho
united States issued to him and with
advice and consent of the senate. It
may be that some of tho members of
the association prefer not to have a

An Associated Press dispatch says:
President Taft heard Senator Bailey
of Texas denounce Theodore Roose
velt's third term ambitions and saw
GOO members of the .University club
rise to their feet from a score of ban
quet tables and stand several
minutes applauding the utterance.
Senator Bailey declared that if "the
present president is not good enough
republican to succeed himself he
must be good enough a democrat to
He jokingly invited the president
in case of failure at Chicago to enter
tho democratic party.
The president confined his speech
to the value of university training.
He laughingly asked Senator Bailey
to tell him which branch of the
democratic party be would be re
ceived in, but made no other political
reference except to chide his hearers
for their applause of political re
marks. Senator Bailey began his speech
with a defense of the constitution.
"Without intending to be offen
sive," said he, "I think that George
Washington and Alexander Hamilton
and James Madison were better
qualified to establish a government
than Bob La Follette or Bob Owen."
"He did not say anything about
Theodore," broke in a voice and
again laughter swept the room.
Senator Bailey said that univer
sity men had a distinct duty to per
form in educating the country
against adverse political tendencies.
He suggested that it would "be well
to teach the democratic party the
difference between a democrat and a
"But men can be educated beyond
their ability," continued the senator,
"and that'swhat we call a mug
wump. A man is often educated by
his capacity, as when he says he does
not mean to accept another nomina
tion and then tries to tell the people
he did not mean what, ho nnfil "
Deafening shouts greeted these re
marks, and there was more cheering
for President Taft as he rose to
speak, immediately afterwards.
