"I was president throughout tho time of the negotiations, first with Colombia and then with Panama, by which we acquired the right to build the "Panama canal.

"Tho question 'to be considered by this committee," said Senator Stone, "Is not so much what happened In Colombia ten or eleven years ago. The subject for us to consider Is how to adjust our relations. Colonel Roosevelt has said time and again what he had to say about Colombia, if he has anything further to say, as far as I am concerned, let him write It out and send It to the committee. I am not much In favor of turning the foreign rela tions committee of the senate Into a town meeting." Hebron Man Injured. HEBRON. Neb., July 22. (Special Tele gram.)
