"In pursuance of authority contained In

thst the Interest maturing on the several
Interest dates between and including No
vember 1, 1902, and July 1, 190S, on tbe reg

COLOMBIANS FILE A PROTEST
Objection to the Landing of American
Marine la Not, However,
Considered Valid. ,
WASHINGTON, Sept. 96. In regard to
the protest against ths landing of Ameri
can marines on the isthmus, made to Com
mander McLean of Cincinnati by Governor
Salazar of Panama, on tbe ground that the
Colombian government baa ample force to
protect the lives and property of foreign
era. It Is pointed out here that the gov
ernor's argument takes In only one-half of
the main treaty obligation with regard to
'the isthmus, assumed In the convention of
New Granada, signed In 1846 by the UnlteJ
8tates and Colombia.,
The dominant factor which Influenced the
landing of the marine was the obligation
which the United States took 'upon Itself
by the treaty of 1846 In these words:
The United Stales guarantee) positively
to New Granada, by the present stipula
tion, the perfect, neutrality of the before
mentioned Isthmus, with the view that the
free transit from the one to the other ea
may not be Interrupted or embarrassed In
any future time while this treaty exists.
Furthermore, In respect to the governor's
reported declaration that be considered the
landing of the United States naval forces
an attempt to assume the sovereignty of
Colombia., attention Is directed to this dec
laration In the same paragraph of the
The United States also guarantees the
rights of sovereignty and property which
New Granada ha and possesses over th

government. It waa atated.at tbe Navy de
partment today tbat no mention of the
protest was made In the long dispatch re
ceived from Commander McLean yester
day. In regard te which only a general
statement was made public.
If Governor Salasar, in making the secu
rity of tbe live and property of foreign
er bis ground for protest against tbe
presence of tbe American marines, did e
on tbe assumption that the transit was
safe against Interruption, then the offi
cials here are not Inclined to the same
Tbey point out that there would have
been an Interruption : ef traffic on the
Isthmus on Wednesday, when 800 insur
gent, attempted to capture a Colombian
officer aboard one of the trains, had It not
been for tbe presence of the American
Prairie, which Is to take the additional
(00 marines to the Isthmus If they are
needed, , is expected to leave Boston 'today
for League Island, enrouta to Norfolk.
The Navy department today gave out the
following statement regarding a cablegram
received from Commander McLean:
Commander McLean rabies that for the
present situation, the United States forces
now on the Isthmus will be sufttclent. Ac
cordingly no more need be sent unless soma

Is thouicht that the marine battalion be!ng

DINKELLA OUT OF PRISON
President Grant Tardea tm Centen

Two Years' Coaftaesaeat.
WASHINGTON. Sept. The president
has granted a full and unconditional pardon
to William Diukella, convicted In 1880 before
a United States consular conrt In Japan of
the murder of Charles It. Abbott, ths first
mats of the American ship Centennial whlls
lying in Hlogo harbor, the prisoner being
the second mate of the ship. Dtnkella has
been In prison for more then twenty-two
years, two years In Japan and over twenty
yeara In the Albany. N. Y., prison. He
alwaya baa insisted tbat tbe orlme was com
mitted in the heat of passion and when hs
believed his own life wes In jeopardy, tbe
testimony showing tbat the mardered man
had beaten and choked the prisoner almoal
Into Insensibility when the prisoner secured
his pistol and abot Abbott dead. Tbe at
torney general says that the element of pre
meditation was entirely larking and that In
these circumstances the crime could not
have risen above murder In the second
degree, tbe maximum penalty for which Is
fixed usually at twenty years. In view of
this fact and that of the uniformly good
behavior of the prisoner while in the peni
tentiary, a full pardon Is granted.
INCREASES GERMAN TARIFF
Special Commission Achedalea Rate
Higher, Even, Thaa Those
of the Government.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26. The State de
partment made public today an Important
report from Consul Monaghan from Chem
nlts. dated August 29, In regard to the pro
posed German tariff on foodstuffs.
The counsel says that while the German
government Itself had in mind a derided
increase in the price of foodstuffs, as Indi
cated by its proposed recommendationa
upon the new tariff, the tariff commission,
which Is composed mainly of agrarians,
has drawn up a schedule of duties which
presents an extreme advance even 'over the
government recommendations. Wheat now
pays 83c for every 220 pounds. The gov
ernment's proposition Is $1.56 and the tariff
commission determined on $1.79. ' The re
spective figures for rye are 83c, $1.48 and
$1.63, and all along the line as great and
greater Increases are noted. ' Mr. Mona
ghan says the German agrarians claim that
secret understandings between the guilds
of butchers and bakers are responsible for
the high prices, but.be transmits a state
ment of a butchers' guild that the great
advance in prices Is due to the "scarcity
of live stock brought about by the closing
of tbe German empire to tbe Importation of
live stock from the more abundantly sup
plied neighboring states." .

Mr. Mitchell, In his address, ssld In psrt:
"I hsve some doubts In my mind whether
tbe residents of Philadelphia have cause
to feel aggrieved at Mr. Bacr or to feci
grateful to him. It I true that the trust
he represents Is extorting from you fabu
lous prices for coal, but aa a compensat
ing feature he has taken from Philadelphia
the largest portion of the criminal class
thst formerly resided here, and now hs
them commissioned by the governor of
Pennsylvania as coal and Iron police. Phil
adelphia criminals are now preserving the
law In the coal fields.
"But I did not come here for the pur
ose of discussing thst phase of the ques
tion. I came here to tell you something
about the coal strike. It Is not tbe miners'
fault that the residents of Philadelphia
are paying $1.1 a ton for coal. In this
strike the people have passed Judgment. I
am willing to say thst If 90 per cent of
the American people would not cast their
votes In favor of the miners If It were left
to them I would order the strike off now.
The papers friendly to the coal trusts
have been printing the stories of lawless
ness, and they say the- miners want to go
back to work. Let me ssy to you that for

Yet It mi true that my people are suffer

answer was made today by the flour mill
managers of Minneapolis to the demand
submitted by their employes' union for an
eight-hour day. The response In effect Is
"!t i not tmr intention to oppose yon or
your union, but when It comes to the
question of wages and hours, we must
simply repeat our answer mads to you on
May 17, that Minneapolis mills csn not pay
for eight hours' work higher wsges than
mills In all other sections of the country
pay for twelve hours' work. Your work I
mainly superintending machines and Is dif
ferent than the work done In many other
employments, and you cannot, aa is claimed
for many other employments, do as much
work in eight hours as in twelve hours.
"If, however, you have fully made up
your winds that you want an eight-hour
day, we are willing to make the change
and pay the following wages: Miller now
receiving $3, to receive' 35 cents an hour;
machine men now receiving $2 50, to re

NEW YORK, Sept. 26. The coal shortsge
reached an acute stage today. The price of
oft coal Jumped to $S a ton, $2. SO more than
the price Wednesday, and three times as
much as before the strike wss Inaugurated.
The quoted price of hard coal was $13 but It
was merely nominal, as there wa abso
lutely none to be had at any price.
' The price of wood followed coal. Kind
ling wood, selling a few days ago at $10 a
cord, today brought $12. Practically a
complete fuel famine exists. Consumers
throughout the city bad postponed laying
In a supply of coal, believing the strike
would be settled and prices would fall.
The park department Is seriously em
harassed. Ten days ago contracts were
advertised for and today only one bid was
found snd that wa for 200 tons of pea coal
t $8.75 per ton, which was quickly ac
cepted. A conference of representatives of the
principal rharltable organizations of the
city wtir be held within a few days to con
sider the sltustion resulting from the ooal
strike. Many of the organizations made
contract for coal, but as these contain a
strike clause no supplies will be forth
coming. In former seasons the society for
Relieving the Condition of the Poor, the
United Hebrew Charities nd the St. Vincent
de Paul society have distributed about
2,000 tons of coal each, a total of 6,000. The
charitable workers estimate that they may
have to provide ten or twenty times the
amount of coal they bave given away In for
