olution did not go to Panama to attend
the conference arranged to take place
today on hoard the Fulled States bat

between representatives of the Colom
bian government and the revolutionists
is because the government of Colombia,
according to advices received here, In
tended to limit the subject of the con
ference to the acceptance of the decree
of amni.ity recently promulgated by the
president of Colombia, Senor .Marro
qiiin. Cieneral Vargo-Santus received ud
ices to the effect that notwithstanding
recent peace proposals of the Colombian
government made through its repre
sent itives here, Colombia purposed
limiting the conferees to the acceptance
of the decree of amnesty. General A'av-gos-Sanlos
thereupon refused to accept
such a proposition and decided to with
draw from the conference, which he
says he considers futile.
At the same time the military direc
tor of the Colombian .evolution learned
that the I'oloniblan government had is
sued ordtrs to General Tovar to im
prison the revolutionary general, Urlbe
Vribe, and sentence him to death with
out mercy. This order was given in
spite of General Uribe-Urlbe's capitu
lation to the government forces, which
occurred at Itlo Frio, Colombia, last
month. The receipt of this news, which
is considered in Colombian revolution
ary circles here to be a .shameful vio
lation of public faith, further decided
General Vargos-Santos not to attend
the peace conference at Panama, and
he issued orders to the Colombian revo
lutionary army to continue its warfare.
General Vargos-Santos declares he is
willing to make peace, providing that
the Colombian government will recog

By Cxcltidte Wire from The Aaiuclatfd Pren.
Boston. Nov. !. The strange case in
volving the niurder of two young
women, Agnes McPhee and Clara A.
Morton and the murderous assaults
upon many others, Is a step nearer
solution for httu last night the police
were given the custody of the young
man who sold, or.as he thought pawn
ed the watches which were taken by
the so-called "Jack the Slugger" from
the botlles of his victims. The person
In custody Is a llgbt-coinplexloned
negro, IS years of age. Ills name Is
George L. Perry. He has confessed that
he received the watches from a man
In Central Square, Cambridge. He has
given the name of this man to the
police, but the .latter refused to state
whether or not he gave the name of
Alan CI. Mason, the prominent Boston
man who Is under detention at the
Middlesex county Jail In Cambridge on
the charge of having murdered Miss
Clara A. Morton.
While the statement of (he boy clears
Mason of having been the man who
personally pawned the watches, still
there was nothing in the boy's state
ments as issued by the police which
either disapproved or conllrmed the
theory that Mason was the one who
gave him the watches to pawn.
The police were very reticent as to
what further statements were made
by Perry but there were rumors tonight
that he had said that the man was a
Caught by an Aid Society.
The detention of Perry came through
the Boston Children's Aid society, and
immediately through two of its ollicials,
Charles W. Blrtwell and Samuel C.
These two men were led to believe
that tho handwriting of a young negro
whom they knew through tho work of
the society was similar to that con
tained on the cards filled out by the
man who sold tho watches. The st.itft
police were called in: the young iu.ni.
who proved to be Perry, was found, and
later confessed to having taken tho
watches from a man in Cambridge, one
a month ago, just after the niurder of
Miss McPhee, and the second last Sun
day, tho day following tbut upon which
Miss Morton was murdered In Waver
ley. At first the younir man denied that
he had ever sold a watch, but later
made a statement, which was taken
clown by a stenographer. The boy was
then turned over to Chief Wiide, of the
state police, and late last night officers
it-moved him to Cambridge police head
quarters. The boy. In his statement,
says he met the man whom be dis
closed In Central square, Cambridge,
about four weeks ago,
After some conversation they began
to talk about watches and the man
gave the boy u .small watch. Berry
pawned It with Nemser, and meeting
tho man again gave him seventy-flvo
cents of the proceeds. Last Sunday
Perry met hint again, as ho fcays, acci
dentally, and again the man showed a
watch. Perry says the man seemed
anxious to get rid of It, so he took It
and pawned It with Nemser, getting
four dollars. Ho says he has not seen
the man since.
He Is evidently a most valuable, wit
ness and the police are using every en
deavor to shield him from outside par
tics. Mason will have a bearing In the
Cambridge) district court Tuesday.
Perry Implicates Mason.
After having given out tho confes
sion inudu by the young negro, George
L. O, Perry, with reference to selling
the watches taken from tho murdered
women, Miss Clara A, Morton and
Miss Agues McPhee, the police now ad
mit that Perry declares that Alan u.
Mason Is the man fiom whom he re
ceived these articles. This admission
of the police was inudo Just before
young Perry was taken to the Jail In
Kast Cambridge, where Mason, tho
prominent Boston man under arrest on
the charge or killing Miss Morton, Is
confined pending a hearing In the
Cambridge court tomorruw. In one of
the jail corridors, Perry positively
Ideiitllied Mason as the man who had
given htm the two watches.
Mason, by neither look nor word, be
trayed any knowledge ot having seen
Perry before, AViieii questioned by
Sheriff ;Fuirbulru. Mason merely said:
"I do not know this iniiu; I never
saw him before,"
During the day Chief ityan and Otll
cer Argy, of Belmont, talked with
Perry and later State Oilleeis New,
Dunham, Dexter mid others took Perry
to tho Jail. The callers were shown
into tho room wheru .wusou and six
others were in line, Perry walked
straight up to Mason, who was second
In position, and pointing Ids finger at
"This Is the nmn who gave mo the
watches to pawn."
Ho was about to leiivo the room when
Sheriff Kalrbalin asked him If he woultl
like to talk with Mason In order that
lie might make himself sure that Mason
was the man.
Perry replied that there was no need
of that, us he know who the man was
and had known him for a. long time.
On being returned to his cell in the
police, station Perry was confronted by
thrt'ts newsboys find they Ideiitllied htm
us another newsboy.
Clement 'i. Morgan, tt Cambridge
lawyer, called ut police headquarters
and said that he had been retained by
the boy's mother ns counsel.
Another visitor at the police station
later on In (he day, was Mr, Ware,
Mason's attorney. He was accom
panied by a middle ugod woman. This
wouuiii did not see Perry but It was
understood that she had been produced
by the defense In tho hope of showing
that Perry himself or some other negro
wan the real "Jack the Slugger." She
Is one of the women who were follow
ed by a. negro In Cambridge several
weeks ago. Mr. Ware, places no fulth
in the uceusoticm of Perry that it was
Mason that gave thu boy the watches,

the question whether the men hold to
their decision to continue the move
ment or straggle back to the mines.
