honored by Attempting Such a
Thing Busy Day Spent
Panama.President Taft cffi'tuiaUy
disposed of the report that the Unl.ed
States was likely to annex Panama. At
a dinner given In his honor by Presi
dent AroEcmcna nnd attended by 200
ofllclals , diplomats and private cltl-
ssens , Mr. Taft aroused the greatest
enthusiasm when he declared the
American people would feel utterly
dishonored In annexing Panama , un
less some conduct on the part of the
Pnnamans left no other course. This
contingency Mr. Taft was sure would
never arise. The president arrived at
Panama Wednesday evening from Cul-
ebra , after spending the day In the
great cut , where he was surrounded
oftentimes with giant shovels , puff
ing drills and hurrying dirt trains ,
while occasional distant blasts ecnt
up tons of rocks.

but they were In no wise disturbing

thals , the latter saying they will be

Tlie president reviewed the marines

Jind the cost of living lower than In
the United States.

The steamship Almeda tried for
twelve hours to enter the storm-swept
harbor , but was finally compelled to
turn back. The telephone line , the
sole means of communication with
the island , went down and the strand
ed passengers are entirely cuti oft
from the outside world.
