the Duryea jail. They say that they

HENDRICKS HELD IN BAIL.
Ho Is Charged with Sending nn
Anonymous Letter Through the
Mnllo to Hon. P. E. Timlin.
T. A. Hendricks, of .Termyn, was yes
terday hold In $n00 ball by Alderman
M. J. Ruddy on a charge ot mailing a
libelous letter to Hon, P. E. Timlin,
former member ot the legislature from
the Fourth district of this county.
Mr. Timlin lived In Jermyn until a
few weeks ugo when he moved to Car
bondnte. Ho Is n young mini and a
member ot the Lackawanna bar. Mr.
Hendricks has been a resident of
Jermyn for ten years, Is engaged In
business there and Is counted one of
the town's best known citizens. He Is
now engaged In desperate battle with
Mr. Timlin for tho Democratic nomin
ation for the legislature. The primaries
will take place this afternoon and tho
bnttlo leading up to them has been
very exciting. It has been tho cause ot
bad blood between the two men al
though not the Inception of the trouble
On Aug. 17, Mr. Timlin alleges that
he received an nnnoymous letter
though the mails which denounced him
In bitter language, referred to htm as
corrupt In politics and said many other
unpleasant thing about him.
He spent several days In Investigat
ing the source from which the letter
came and after comparing It closely
with letters he had received from Mr.
Hendricks he came to the conclusion
that the latter was the man who wrote
the letter and accordingly on Saturday
swore out a warrant before Alderman
Ruddy for his arrest.
The hearing was fixed for 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon but It was nearly
4:30 when the defendant put in his ap
pearance. He was represented by At
torney John J. Murphy and the defen
dant by Attorney H. D. Carey.
Mr. Murphy said to fully establish
their case it would be necessary to
have an expert in handwriting to pass
upon the letter, and he asked thut the
case go over until today to give them
an opportunity to secure an expert. Mr.
Carey objected with vigor. They had
been summoned for a hearing and were
ready to proceed. It would be unjust
to compel them to come around today.
The primary election will be on today
and Mr. Carey said It was for the pur
pose of annoying and bothering Mr.
Hendricks and keeping him away from
the fight for representative that it was
proposed to continue until today.
In no sense was that their intention,
Mr. Murphy said, and as an evidence of,
their good faith would proceed to give
their side of the case In the absence of
the expert reserving the right to call
the expert later.
Mr. Timlin wns called and testified to
the receipt of the letter and having
compared It with letters he had receiv
ed from Mr. Hendricks. He was con
vinced that the latter was the author
of the letter. Mrs. Timlin, mother of
the prosecutor also testified that she
was familiar with Mr. Hendrick's hand
writing and was convinced that he was
the person who wrote the nnnoymous
Thomas Walkey, formerly postmaster
of Jermyn wns sworn but could not
thrown much light on the authorship of
the letter. Mr. Hendricks the defend
ant was then put on the stand and
denied having had anything to do with
the writing or mailing of the letter in
Mr. Murphy asked that the defendnnt
be bound over for his appearance at
court and Mr. Carey objected to this
saying a case had not been made ,out
and that at all events there was no libel
for the essence of libel is publication
and there was no publication In this
case until Mr. Timlin had himself, made
known the contents of the letter.
The alderman decided that there was
sufficient evidence in the case to bind
for court and accordingly held Mr.
Hendricks in $300 bail. His attorney
became his bondsmnn.

STATEMENT THAT IT WAS IL
If tho Utterances of General Uribe
Urlbe, Loader of the Liberal Party
in Colombia) Is Correct Then the
French Company's Concessions Will
Run Only Two Years 'Longer.
Facts and Figures Upon Which the
Statement of the General Is Made.
Want Us to Wait.
General Urlbe Urlbe, the lender of the
Liberal party of Colombia, and the fore
most man of his times In South Amer
ica, has Issued the declaration which
appears below and which Is of exceo
tionnl Interest to Amcrlcuns In view ot
Panama canal negotiations now pend
ing. The declaration Is translated from
the Spanish and given to the press of
tho United Stutes by Raul Perez, of
this city, who Itus long acted as secre
tary for Gcncrul Urlbe and Is a promi
nent ofllclat of the Liberals. Air. Perez
Is himself an exile from his native land
and has suffered confiscation ot his es
tates, Imprisonment and many perse
cutions at tho hands of the govern
ment now In power, He Is a linguist
of remarkable versatility, and Is at
present preparing a portion of the
Spanish course for tho International
With regard to General Urlbe's dec
laration, It should bo understood that
the extension of time to which refer
ence Is made was given by a former
president of the republic, Dr. Sancle
mente. with no authority outside of
that which he had arrogated to him
self. No congress has been In session
in Colombia since 1S9S. therefore no
legality attaches to the extension of
time thus granted the French company.
Tho existence of a revolution In
which the Liberals have been contend
ing for the franchise anil other rights
bus precluded the assembly of congress
since that date, yet at the time when
the French company wns about to pay
the sun; of $6,000,000 for such extension,
Dr. Sanclemeute, hoping to secure
enough i;endy funds to resist the at
tacks of the revolutionists, accepted
$1,000,000 and granted time extending to
1910. The French company was warned
thnt this was illegal and that the
money would be forfeited; nevertheless,
it was paid to the Colombian govern
ment. It Is to this incident of history
that General Urlbe refers. The author
ized extension of time will lapse In 1904.
The general argues that there is no
need of the United States paying $40,
000,000 to a company of European
speculators for what in the course of
two years can be obtained by direct
treaty with Colombia, under better
The public is aware of the fact that the
United Stales congress has Just passed a
law authorizing President Roosevelt to
obtain for the North American nation tho
right to build the Panama canal, provided
two conditions bo tilled: First That the
title of the French company be valid, and
second Thnt said company should not
demand over forty millions of dollars for
The only thing that irlvei commercial
value to the French company's title Is the
six years extension of time, granted by
Dr. Sanclemeute without constitutional
power and after the Colombian congress
during the sessions ot '!)S refused to au
thorize any negotiation directed towards
the granting of such an extension. More
over, it is a notorious fact that the de
sire to annul tho harmful effects of Dr.
Sanclemente's illegal and anti-patriotic
act had great Influence on the minds of
those who decided to depose him.
During the two years that not counting
the extension of time still remain before
the expiration of the term of the fran
chise. It is Impossible for any human
power to fulfill tho obligation of digging
the canal, and It Is evident that no ono
would buy the concession under condi
tions so exacting. Eight years, however,
would be amply sufficient for American
energy, science and capital to accomplish
this great enterprise.
Now, the extension of time, which Is
really what the French company can sell,
is not legal if a Colombian congress,
freely elected, does not ratify it. Not
even the transfer of the franchise to a
government will be vufld without the pre
vious consent and approval of tho same
congrers. Thus the title thnt the French
company presents to tho government ot
the United States Is not a perfect and
transferable title, while it lacks the sanc
tion of the supremo authority, which, in
accordance with the existing constitution,
Is the legislative power.
The Colombian liberal party guided by
the purest patriotic sentiment hns al
ready most solemnly protested against
Dr. Sanclemente's proceeding. I do here
by confirm that protest, Inasmuch ns It Is
supported by the party and Justified by
NO NEED OF HASTE.
Should the extension of time bn dis
approved, tho expiration of tho French
franchise will Inevitably take place In
October, 1901. I fall to see any well
founded motive to Justify haste to gain
two years In definitely setting out to
r.secute a work without which humanity
has been able to exist nnd advance dur
ing myriads of years. Let iw bo patient
for twenty-six months longer, until
the encumbering French Imbroglio will
straighten nut by tho natural course of
events, nnd then a direct treaty between
the two nations can be effected with
greater reciprocal advantages and with
out costly outside Intermediaries,
Tho decision of the United States con
gress in favor of the Panama route hns
given came for Joy ami profound gratl
tilde, to all Colombians, who thus sen the
wurk of tho canal fall Into responsible
and strong hands, capable of accomplish
ing tho purpose. But the fact most wor
thy ot congratulations is that this power
exists within the limits of the American
cimtlnent. Much greater would he tho
satisfaction, however, for sons of tho New
World had they not to buy from a meie
European compuny tho right to carry out
reforms and lutrodiico Improvements on
American soil, Indeed, Is it not anomal
ous tluu ' order to deal with each other
two nations of tho American family
should hnvu to ask and pay dearly for
permission from an Intruding third party?
Little difference could bo tletected be
tween the galleons of olden times, which
railed from our coast to Europe laden with
gold, representing tho product of fifths
and gnbells paid to the Spanish crown,
and tho transatlantic liner that carries
over the forty millions of dollars to the
French company, representing Intlnlto ef
fort of American toll. One Is a tribute us
much ns1 another, since nothing equiva
lent is received In exchange In fungible
form, but a document or title of question,
able legality, All this would be avoided
simply by waiting until the lufiso of a

Bcforo deciding on a tnnttcr of such
vast ininortnncc, let us wait until tho
country recovers pcaco nnd with It liber
ty of judgment. In the first place, let tm
exert ourselves for a united action, so
thnt tho decision taken, bo It what It
may, shall carry with It tho seal of a

party would not ho Httfllclent. Tho others

present nnd the future of the country to

LABOR DAY EXCURSION.
It Will Be a Most Enjoyable Affair
at Lake Lodore, Sept. 1.
The Labor Day excursion will be con
ducted to Lake Lodore on .Monday,
Sept. I. There will bo no place at which
the day can be more pleasantly spent
than at this beautiful lakeside, where
thousands of merry excursionists will
be entertained In royal style. There
will be an excellent dance programme
provided in the mammoth pavllllon, and
the safe and rapid moving steamer and
naptluv launches, the large and com
modious passenger boat together with
the fleet of row boats will be In full
service. No better spot for fishing in
the region. Then there will be one of
the most exciting ball games of tho
season for a gold prize. An abundance
of delicious refreshments will be sup
plied; the merry-go-round, swings, etc.,
for the children. Trains will leave the
D. & H. depot, Scranton, at 9.15 and

There are endless numbers of travel
ing people who go regularly from New
York to Chicago and vice versa several
times a month, who have never gone
over any other road but the Lake
Shore & Michigan Southern, because
this road is good enough for them. It's
good enough for anybody, the fastest,
safest, most convenient and most com
fortable road in America. Once you
travel over the Lake Shore and you will
not want to experiment with any other
road. People who know the comforts
and discomforts of traveling, and what
they have a right to expect, always
insist on their tickets reading by way
of the Lake Shore. So should you.
