spent very quietly by President Roosevelt.
In .view of the fact that the president al
ways observes the Sabbath a h ee lit,
the citizen of Seattle gave him full range
to follow hi own Inclination, and Secre
tary Loeb said the president appreciated
thla deference more than any public at
tention. Saturday was one of the hardeat
day that the president haa had since he
started on his tour. He visited the navy
yard at Bremerton, Everrett and returned
to Seattle again In the evening. During
the day he made Ave addresses. Naturally

of the Republic at the opera house. Rev.
J. M. Wilson presched the sermon which
struck a popular chord in which the pres
ident was highly Interested. There wss
a large gathering at the service and all
paid their respect to the president. He
took no part In the demonstration.
In the afternoon President Roosevelt and
some of the member of his party took a
horseback ride out to Fort Lawton where
they spent a short time looking over tha
grounds. There wa nothing official In his
vlalt. and he greeted the soldiers and
mingled with them for a few minute.

while In Seattle are at the Hotel Wash
ington. Not a alngle detail ha been over
looked. The National Guard I on duty
at the hotel during all. of the watches of
the day and night. Large crowd of peo
ple have been in front of the hotel all
day, waiting to catch a glimpse of the
president, but he remained In doors as
much ss possible. It Is a noticeable fact
that the secret service officer with the
president have been keeping a ceaaeles
guard. It la understood these officers do
not relish the president' coming visit to
Butte. Mont, because of the alleged pres
ence there of s number of anarchists,
some of whom It Is alleged were connected
with the-recent plot to blow tip the liner
Umbria In New York. A soon as the great
mining camp Is approached extra precau
tions will be taken. Naturally the presi
dent scoffs at at! these fears.
During the president's entire stay In
Seattle the weather has been exceptionally
fine and clear. The party will leave
Seattle over the Northern Pacific on the
return to the east Monday morning at t
o'clock. Various stop will be mad in
Washington during the day.

WASHINGTON. May 24.-Whethr the
ministerial crisis In Colombia, as reported
by United States Minister Beaubre, will
have any Important bearing on the ratifica
tion of the lathmlan canal treaty I not
known here. Fernandes, the minister of
government (more specifically known
locally as th minister of the Interior), who
resigned, was virtually the premier of the
government. The office filled by him cor
responds In many respects to that of secre
tary or state in the United Statea. State
ments have been made to the effect that aa
wag opposed to the official declaration of
peace In Colombia, holding that It waa still
under martial law. If Colombia were undw
martial law its president could exercise the
dictatorial powers vested In him by the con
stitution and if he chose ratify the conal
treaty by his own act without submitting It
to th consideration of congress, whose
position on the subject is still doubtful. The
opinion here, however. Is that President
Marrlqouln would not consent to any such
arrangement. Fernandes was said to be an
advocate of the ratification of the canal
General Pinto, the newly appointed minis
ter of government (or interior). Is, ss ststed
In Minister Beaubre's-dispatch, 'the gov
ernor of the province of Cauca, which prov
ince border on tne Pacific ocean and more
than any other -portion of Colombia would
profit materially by the construction of the
waterway. General Pinto Is aald to favor
the construction of the canal.
Such unofficial and Incomplete Informa
tion as reaches Washington shows con
tinued opposition on th part of many in
fluential Colombians to the canal treaty,
but whether thl will be sufficient to defeat
ratification cannot be stated at this time.
