POSTAL INVESTIGATION NOW
NEARINQ AN END.

Has Left for Turkey Yet The
Great Canal Question May Be

Washington Sept. 0. It will bo ro-
mombered that at tho beginning of
tho postoffle'd"" department Investiga-
tion Uio postmastor-gcncrnl Mr.
Payno said with a lofty air that thero
was "nothing In It" and dismissed all
charges of ox-Cashter Tulloch with
disdain. Well tho general public
knows how much thero was In It and
how tho deeper they dug In tho muck
heap tho nnstlor It got. Tho post-
ofllco department Investigation is now
Hearing tho end and tho report of
Fourth Assistant Postmaster-General
Drlstow will soon bo ready for tho
public but tho chances aro that tho
general public will soon forgot all
about tho postofileo matter becauso It
will bo entertained with another in
vestigation that is "now about to bo
pulled off tho nolso of which will re-
verberate from Tadmor-ln-tho-wllder-ness
to Yuba Dam. It Is now up t6
tho Interior department to take a turn
at tho Investigation grindstone and
tho storm center of this investiga-
tion will bo In tho Indian Territory.
Chairman James M. Griggs of tho
Democratic congressional commlttco
was In tho city last week and tho
first question ho 'asked on his arrival
hero was: "Has tho president left for
Turkey yet?" That seems to bo tho
question uppermost In tho minds of
nearly everybody over slnco tho ac-
tion of tho president In sending our
warships to Turkish waters on tho
strength of a cnblogram which afte--wards
proved to bo Incorrect that our
vice-consul had been assassinated. Ho
has acted with his customary head-
long head-strong precipitancy which
may Involve tho country In cmdlcss
troublo and expense. Thero is no
man who tries to defend tho "unspeak-
able" Turk and his methods but tho
business Interests of tho country aro
entitled to bomo consideration from
tho man who occuplos! tho highest po-
sition In tho nation and to thoso In-
terests ho gives no thought at all. Ho
Is looking for tho llmollght and ho
wants to Stand In It at all times or
elso ho Is not happy. Things havo

that would rehabilitate his fallen for-

If tho people know tho man as wo do

Look out for business snags.
A good many of tho warm adminis-
tration organs have with great frank-
ness been discussing tho possibility
nnd proprloty of sorzfng tho strip o
land through which It Is proposed to
bdlld tho Panama canal. They ar'guo
that If Colombia will not grant tho
concession that the United States can-
not afford to bo balked from tho great
entcrprlso by tho constitutional ob-
stacles that tho Colombians say aro
In tho way of ratification of tho treaty.
Othors of theso Itopubllcan newspa-
pers favor tho fomenting of a rebel-
lion In the stato of Panama against
tho Colombian government and then
landing a forco of marines to mako It
successful. This bold way of stating
t lit tho United States should excr-
Its undoubted physical ability 1
cocrco a weaker stato Is on a par
with otlior Imperialistic Ideas that
havo bean rampant under tho present
regime. Dut theso vicious public ad-
visers forgot tho terms of tho con-
gressional enactment which authorized
tho building of an intcr-occanlc canal
that if tho Colombian government
would not ratify tho. treaty tho presi-
dent of tho United States was author-
ized to open negotiations with Nicara-
gua and Costa Rica and build tho ca-
nal by tho Nicaragua route. That Is

that tho congress of that country docs

Is very good reason to bcUovo that
tho Nicaragua routo would havo been
adopted If tho railroad lnflucnco led
by Senator Hanna had not been om-
nipotent In Uio senate.
