Washington Dlsconnts Ihe Ramor.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.-The State de
partment has no knowledge of the march
ing army from Colombia upon the isthmus
and the officials state that were any such
movement in progress It would certainly
be informed by its agents In the south, the
cables being still open. These officials
scout the Idea that any such march Is In
progress as .the telegram la reported to
have ascribed to the president of Ecua
dor. It waa nothing more than a few
men who were about to embark at Buena
Adventuar a few days ago, when they
were turned back from the isthmus by
notice of the determination of the United
states naval commander to allow no land
ing In that quarter. These troops cannot
reach the isthmus by water and the offi
cials here are positive that they cannot
do so by land. The character of the coun
try la such that there is no subsistence for
an army on the route of the .Wild moun
tain trails and the passages through the
morasses that lie between Colombia proper
and the Isthmus. Even if there Were sub
stantial numbers of the men they could
not carry their equipment. , .
Hever Anr More Warfare There.
The officials do not care to exprcaa pub
licly their plans, but enough has been
gleaned from the Instructions given to our
naval commander to make It evident that
never again will the isthmus become the
seat of warfare aa long as the .United
States government can prevent It. : The
difference between the present situation on
the-Isthmus and -that -which existed last
year, when Commander McLean prevented
armed. troops from, crossing the .isthmus
by rail,. Is Just this; The authorities have
now determined to extend the lines of pro
tection to the railroad. They will not allow
hostile forces, no matter whether they are
Colombians or Panama troops, to come
Into collision anywhere near the railroad,
and to prevent auch collision It will be
necessary to extend the neutral cone clear
to the north and south boundaries of the
Republlo of Panama. Officials here will
not make such a statement publicly; they
simply say "Walt till the emergency
But It Is known that such were the plans
of the naval commandera and there is no
Indication of a change In these plans. Not
the slightest apprehension la felt here of
the encroachment of any Colombian army
Naval Force at Isthmns.
It Is said at the Navy department that
the only news received over night from the
Isthmus of Panama waa a brief dispatch
from Rear Admiral Glass, announcing the
arrival at Panama yesterday of the moni
tor Wyoming. There are now seven vessels
guarding the Interests of the United States
on the Isthmus. Of these, four are on the
Pacific side, the cruisers Boston and Mar
blehead, the gunboat Concord and monitor
Wyoming. 80 far as known no other naval
vessels except possibly colliers or supply
ships will be sent to the west shore of
the Isthmus for the present. On the At
lantic side are the cruiser . Atlanta, . the
gunboat Nashville and the training ship
Dixie. This fleet will be reinforced in, a
day or two by the battleship Maine and
the president's yacht Mayflower.
Rear Admiral Coghlan, commanding the
Caribbean squadron. Rear Admiral Walker,
president of the Isthmian Canal commis
sion, and Consul General Gudger, who It
Is expected will be given diplomatic powers
at Colon, are passenger on Mayflower,
That vessel la expected to reach tta des
tination tomorrow or Monday. It Is ex
pected that the cruiser Baltimore, now In
Dominican waters, and the training ship
Prairie, conveying martnea to Guantanamo,
also will be added to the fleet on the east
ooast of the Isthmus.
M. phlllippe Bunau-Varilla was at the
state department today to see what In
formation the officials tiad regarding the
situation on the isthmus. He Said he had
no anxiety ovor the dispatch from Guay
aquil that a Colombian expedition would
endeavor to reach the isthmus.
"It were easlur," said the minister, "to
march from Capetown to London than
march from Bogota to Panama. For the
strait of Gibraltar and the English chan
nel are at least , swlmmable, and the
marshes between . the new republlo and Co
lombia are impenetrable." The minister
counts on the American naval .force to
deal effectively' with any expedition by sea
that Colombia may attempt. '.
Dr. Thomas Her ran, the . Colombian
charge d'affaires continues to be without
advices from Bogota. The last advices he
had was November t. when ' a brief mes
sage came announcing the adjournment of
congress. Despite this fact, Dr. Iferran la

President W. D. Mshon said definitely
this morning that the street car men would
not wait upon Manager McCulloch for an
answer to their demands today. He said:
'.'The proposition for Mr. McCulloch to
answer us at H o'clock today was answered
fully and completely by the executive board
of the union at its meeting Monday night,
when the board gave Mr. McCulloch forty
eight hours to consider Its ultimatum. The
action of tho board has since been Indorsed
by the union, and Insofar as we are con

way of new negotiations, to which we are

RIPS SUMMERS SELF-PRAISE
A Friend of Harry Lindsay's Calls
Attention to the Great District
Attorney'a ileal Record.
"I see," said an out-of-town lawyer yes
terday, "that the World-Herald prints a
lengthy interview this morning on the dis
trict attorney muddle, evidently written by
Summers, In which that modest candidate
describes himself aa 'the most able, , most
fearless, the most daring prosecutoA be
fore the courts,' refers to his 'eminent
ability as a lawyer,' 'splendid legal mind,'
etc. I say this waa evidently written by
Bummers, because anyone at alt lanrlllar
with his florid style will recognise it at once
In these complimentary phrases, and be
side thai is Summers', customary method
of booming himself. But he Is carrying
things a little too .far whan ho adopts this
method of attacking Harry Lindsay, who,
he says, Is 'not an able lawyer.' .The fact
Is that Lindsay was for years a member
of the firm of Humphrey & Lindsay, one
of the leading law firms of southern Ne
braska, while Summers never had a private
practice that amounted to anything. He
was kicked out of the attorney general's
office eight yeara r.go for alleged Incompe
tency and questionable practices and was
clear down at the heels when Thurston
picked him up and made him district at
torney. Hla claim that he haa never 'lost
one case' In that office la only amusing to
the lawyers who know that tl.e district
attorney does little but criminal business
and that his deputy, who, by the way, was
one of Cleveland's appointees, has tried
nearly all the cases during 8ummers' term.
His claim that he has been an 'able' and
'fearless' prosecutor Is even more ridiculous
in view of his protection of the Indian
agency grafters and hla Inaction In the
cases against the trespassers on the gov
ernment lands as shown' by the reports of
Colonel Mosby last winter, to say nothing
of his notorious connection with Kmbex
aler Bartley. Summers' 'daring' and ''fear
lessness' as an official are only In evidence
when he Is unlng his office to get even
with a political opponent. Just as he Is
doing now with Senator Dietrich and just
as he did a year ago with the newspaper
reporter who wrote up the truth about
how Summers spent an entire night with
Bartley Just after the tatter's release from
prison. The republicans of the state, al
most to a man, believe that Harry Lind
say Is entitled to this appointment on the
score of ability as well as of party serv
ice and these etJwardly attacks at the elev
enth hour Will only react on their author."
MAKE RAID 0NA CIGAR STORE
Chips and Other Devices Supposed to
Be Vsed .for Gambling Ara
A successful raid waa made last evening
by the police on the establishment operated
by Victor B. Walker In the rear of 1S17
Dodge street, which la known as the Derby
cigar store, also conducted by Walker.
Twenty-nlnu Inmates, two tables, alleged
to be used for fnmhltrg, two loaded re
volvers and a miscellaneous lot of para
phernalia waa taken to the police station.
Instead of the usual chips used In gambling
a choice assortment of aluminum checks,
representing a cash value from 25 cents to
50 cents each was confiscated. The
smaller denominations were of a silver
tinge while the more pretentious ones
were of a golden tint.
When the patrol wagon backed up to
the place after Sergeants Cook and Rent
frow, Detectives Ferris and McCarthy and
Officers Baldwin, Ryan and Ring had sta
tioned themselves at advantageoua points,
there was an animated scene. A number
of the Inmates made a dash for liberty
by breaking through several windows and
a glass door, but they were apprehended
on the outside. No one succeeded In mak
ing his escape. The patrol wagon made
four trips, three times to transport the
2t men.xand the last trip for the devices.
There was a busy scene at the police sta
tion when the four loads were brought In.
The Derby cigar store is -a one-story
structure, and the gambling rooms were
separated from the store by a partition
with a door having a peephole arrange
ment. When Sergeant Cook broke open the
aperture In the door, he saw games of
various kind In operation. Hie place has
been running but a few days, and the con
Unrated articles bore the Impresalon "the

' (From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14. (Special Tele
gram.) This was Nebraska day at the
White House. Early this morning Mr.
Rosewater had a conference with the pres
ident concerning matters In Nebraska.
About 12:30 Mr. Burkett had an audience
with the president and within fifteen m la
mes attar Mr. Burkett had concluded the
entire Nebraska delegation. Including Mr.
Hitchcock, appeared. The lone democrat
from Nebraska and Messrs. McCarthy and
Norrls made their first call upon the
president and were Introduced at the same
time to a group of eminent statesmen, In
cluding Senators Hanna, Foraker, Frya
and Quay. Campaigning lu Nebraska waa
the toplo of discussion for a few minutes,
both Hanna and Frye reviving reminiscen
ces of their tour In Nebraska during the
last national campaign. Senator Hanna
declared that the most precious memento
of the Nebraska campaign was the picture
that appeared In The Bee entitled "Two
Engineers," which has a place of honor In
his office and which hangs between the
portraits of McKlnley and Rosewater. Mr,
Hitchcock waa good humoredly chaffed as
the "black aheep" of the Nebraska delega
tion, . which he as good humoredly ac
knowledged. Tell of gammers' Threats.
The real business of the day then began.
Senator Dietrich Congressman Klnkaid, R.
B. Schneider and Mr. Rosewater were In
vited into a conference previously arranged
by Senator Dietrich and In which Senator
Hanna was also Invited to participate. The
subject matter of discussion waa the dis
trict attorneyship and the conduct of the
Incumbent, W. S. Summers. Senator Diet
rich recalled to the president the fact that
he hal asked for the removal of Summers
a year ago. He charged Summers with
being in league with Joe Bartley, whom
Dietrich had refused to pardon when gov
ernor and party to a malicious persecu
tion began soon after be had pronounced
himself against Summers' reappointment.
The senator recited In detail the facta In
relation to an attempt to besmirch his
character, ending with a plea for the ap
pointment ofiH. C. Lindsay.
Judge Klnkaid followed with a statement
wherein he charged Summers with an at
tempt to extort an endorsement from him
by threats. Summers had attempted to
make Klnkaid believe that he had ren
dered him a great aervice in suppressing
the publication of a compromising letter
and offered furthermore to do him an ad
ditional service by pressing an Indictment
against a postmaster in western Nebraska
whose position Klnkaid would be privileged
to fill. 1
When this proposal was made Klnkaid
retorted that he didn't care about the pub
lication of the letter which had been cir
culated In fact during his last campaign
with the date. so blurred that the Impres
sion was left that It had been written while
Bartley was treasurer and related to state
funda when In fact the letter related to a
private loan made by Judge Klnkald'a bank
to Bartley before the latter had aaaumed
off! ca.. .
Judge Klnkaid atated that Summers did
not stop with JilSvflrst refusal td endorse
him but sent for iilm to come to Omaha
recently on alleged urgent business, when
these threats were repeated.
gammers Moat Walk.'
Senator Dietrich asked Mr. Schneider to
tell of a somewhat similar experience but
the president cut him short by remarking
that he did not want to hear " anything
further, that Judge Klnkald'a statement
was sufficient and that Summers' service
would be dispensed with.
As a formal matter the president ro
quested" Judge Klnkaid to report his state
ment to Attorney General Knox. It Is ex
pected that this will be done on Monday,
and that within a few days at tho Utmost
the ax will Crop.
Senator Dietrich and Mr. Rosewater, to
gether with Mr. Langer, consul at So'lngen,
Germany, had an Interview with .Assistant
Secretary Loomia today looking to a trans
fer of Mr. Langer. Mr. Loomls stated that
there were no vacancies In the consular

WICHITA GETS DECISION
Interstate Commerce Commission Eoldi
that Eoads in Kansas Vio'ate Law.
GRAIN AND LUMBER RATE MUST EE LOWER
Railroads Win on Showing; mm to Coal
' Rates, bat City May Sabmlt More
Evidence at Later.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.-The Interstate
Commerce commission In decisions an
nounced today In three caaes brought by the
city of Wichita, Kan., against the Atchison,
Topeka 4k Santa Fe, Bock Island and other
roads Jn that territory dcclarea that both
the oxport tates on grain from Wichita U
Galveston and the lumber ratee from west
of the Mississippi river points in Louisiana,
Arkansas and Texaa to Wichita, are un
reasonable and should be reduced. The
city .of Wichita ts allowed until January 1.
1904, to apply for leave to submit further
testimony on the reasonableness of the coal
rates to Wichita.
The first case involved the question
whether the grain export rate frorA Wichita
to Galveston was unlawfully higher than
the export rate on like traffic In force tor
the longer dlstsnce from Kansas City to
Galveston, on some of which lines Wichita
Is an intermediate point. The commission
rays It appeared that competition which
does not exist at Wichita, actually controls
and forces the rates from Kansas City,
which are, nevertheless, remunerative to
the roads, but tint the present wheat rate
of 30V4 centa from Wichita to Galvefeton Is
excessive aa applied to wheat and other
kinds of grain to the extent of 2 rents
per 100 pounds.
The commission decides "that the export
rates on grain from Wichita to Galveston
are unreasonable and unlawful and should
ba reduced in accordance with the finding,
but that the order can be directed only
against the unreasonableness of such rate,
and not against the adjustment of export
rates aa between Kansas City and Wichita
The second case involved r.nrload coal
rates from Mlndon, Mo., McAlster, I. T
and Russellvllle, Ark., to Wichita, as com
pared with the rates to Kunium City, and
the commission says the Wichita rates are
not excessive on the record submitted, as
the Kansas City rates are dictated by com
The third oase involved higher rates by
way of the Santa Fe and the Rock Island
systems to Wichita than for the longer
distance through Wichita to Kansas City
and other polnU, It being charged that
the rate to Wichita is excessive by 1 cent
per 100 pounds. The commission says:
"The carriers' lumber rates to Wichita
aa compared to Kansas City, Omaha and
Lincoln are not in violation of the third
or fourth sections of the Interstate Com
merce act; that all of the carriers violate
section I of the act, and the Santa Fe ajid
Rock Island systems violate section I of
the act by . maintaining higher lumber
rates from such territory than to Topeka,
and that tha lumber rate to the territory
described to Wichita la unreasonable and
should be reduced."

Improper Food Often Leads to To
bacco and. Drink..
Improper food creates abnormal tassi
and there are many caaes on tha medlwal
records where the HqUor habit and to
bacco habit have been., caused by wrong
food and bave easily na cured by the use
of the scientific food. Orape-Nuts,. which
so thoroughly nourishes and rebuilds the
nerves that they stop the cry for sMt:iu
A business man aays: ; "For ."0 years- 1
have smoked on an average ot W or 16
c'.gur a duy, and then my nurvous system
tollapsiMl and I 'had about made up my
mind that it waa all up with me. for I
had tried many tlmea to fc-eak oft from
the tobacco, but It always failed. --'
"Last May I was so run down I on'
weighed 111 pounds, and I realised that I
must stop smoking, and stuck to It fur
about 10 days, but was so nervous and iint
of sorts my family told nie I had better
go back to smoking, aa It was Impossible
to live, with me. it was Just about this
time my wife brought a package of Urnrw
Nu'.a 011 tho table one morning, and an I
could mtU nothiDg else, she induced me to
try a liltlr nf tliut. So 1 took a tcaspoou
ful of It, and, strange to say. It tasted
good, and by tha time 1 had it down I
knew It bad gore to the right spot, o I
took some more, and It wus the first food
I had relished for weeks.
"8d I kept up the use of Grape-Nuts,
and as my appetite came back, added otlur
foods, and I am now back to my uld
weight of 133 poundf, never felt belter In
my life, aud, atrange aa It may scc-m, I
have no further craving for the tobacco,
and I thoroughly believe that only the
courage and ambition I got out of the
food Urape-NuU has given me the strength
to quit smoking. If everyone knew the
power of this wonderful food you would
not be able to build a. factory big enough
to supply It." Name given by Postum
