With reference to the charge that
Governor General Wood had exceeded
his authority in giving instructions to
the court, Major Rathbone said that
the general had pursued this course
in the Cuban postal cases when he
(Rathbone) was under prosecution.
This was, he said, in violation of an
article of the penal code of Cuba and
in a manner prejudicial to the rights
and interests of those under trial He
also charged Generri Wood with au-
thorixing the use of ex-parte depost -
tions in the postal care, a proceeding
which, he asserted, is contrary to tho
principles of law and in this case con
trary to instruction given by the sec

enarged that the acceptance of these
gifts constitutes a violation of an ar
ticle of the penal code of Cuba.

TO MEAN BUSINESS.
SMUTCHES TO THE OOCUMEIT
Ceremony Occurs In Secretary Hay's
OSIcev Full Text of the Treaty
net be Made Public at the
Time tar Two Reasons.
WASHINGTON Secretary Hay and
M. Phillippe Banau-Yariila. the min
ister from the Republic of Panama, at
6.40 o'clock Wednesday evening
signed the Hay-Banau-Yarilla treaty
providing for the construction of the
Panama canal by the United States.
The ceremony occurred in Secretary
Hay's study. The Panama minister
arrived at Mr. Hay's house promptly
at o'clock, having made an appoint
ment for the conferences at that hoar.
He was surprised to find that the sec
retary had before him the treaty en
grossed in duplicate. The secretary
informed M. Bunau-VariUa that ke
was ready to sign the treaty. The
i minister read the document carefully
and then ke and Secretary Hay at
tached their signatures to it.
Hearty congratulations were ex
changed and it was agreed that the
news of the signing of the treaty
should be kept from the public for
the present. President Roosevelt was
immediately advised of the signing of
the agreement and M. Bunau-Varilla
sent a confidential cablegram to kls
government stating that the treaty
had been signed. This evening the
minister refused to comment on the
ceremony. The only official admis
sion that can be had is that the terms
of the treaty are practically settled.
The treaty in its text cannot be
made public at this time for two rea
sons. First, because of the unwrit
ten law which obliges the State de
partment to await the pleasure of the
senate in the matter of publicity, and
second, because the president has not
yet determined when the convention
shall be submitted to the senate for
His purpose is to withhold it until
there is reasonable assurance that its
confirmation will not obstruct any of
the legislation for which the present
special session of congress has been
called. But certain facts have been
disclosed as to the provisions of the
treaty which make it appear that is
its general outlines the new Hay-Bu-nau-Varilla
convention is patterned
upon the proposed Hay-Herran treaty,
with the exception that the new con
vention follows not only the spirit,
but the letter of the Spooner act.
Thus, instead of the lease for a fixed
period of the canal strip, this new
treaty provides for a perpetual lease
of the right-of-way to the United
States, and instead of a complicated
provision for courts of mixed composi
tion half American and half Colom
bian to administer justice over the
canal strip, the new treaty permits
the United States government to exer
cise the most complete jurisdiction.

taken by the American nation in a
public treatry to guarantee to tlte sov

which the citizens of that country en

which has characterized that great

hope that the senate of the people of

In thus demanding justice Colombia
appeals to the dignity and honor of

LONDON The Colombian author
thoritles have cabled to London a
lengthy protest against the United
States' action toward Panama, in
which they claim the "main responsi

with the United States government,
first by fomenting the separatists
party, of which there seems to be
clear evidence; secondly, by hastily
acknowledging the independence of
the revolted province, and finally by
preventing tke Cotassbian govern
ment from using proper means to re
press the rebellion.'
The cable message goes on to say
that President Marroquxn has energeti
cally protested to the United States
and wishes that his protest be known
throughout the civilized world. The
president contends that the United
States has infringed article xxxv of
