Waa the String-Puller In Panama
Canal Polltlce, He Saya.
Before several hundred members of the
.::!anadlan Club who assembled at the
Waldort-Astorla Jut night tor an Infor-
mal emoker, :John F. Wallace, the first
engineer ot the new Panama Canal, paid
hle'reepecte to William Nelson Cromwell,
and, by Indirection, to ex-President
Roosevelt, In no uncertain tenns. Of
Mr Cromwell the speaker said that " he
was the Bunty who pulled the atrtnge of
the Roosevelt Administration In all at-
fairs pertaining to the canal."
Mr Wallace characterized the Inaction
of the United Sfatea In the matter of
Colombia's claim tor reparation for
fomenting the Panama revolution amd the
seizure ot the Canal Zone as "the black-
est stain on this country'e history." '
"Until we take ott our hat." he de

that they decided that the work of au-
pervlslon should be lett to an engineer

the end of a few weeke He htmself went
down with a light attack or yellow fever,
from which he recovered without It be-
comtnc known among the great body ot
employes that he had been a victim.
He found the canal district a jungle oT
dlseue, with no precautions against yel-
low fever In his talk he charged the
powers at Washington with having tailed
lamentably In belDing tile engineers to
cleanse the zone and cited aa typical a
letter from the Chairman of the Commis-
sion complaining of the Chief Engineer's

plies. .

was a municipal water SJJJIPIY ay11tem, for
which all preparations l1ad been made
month before Wuhlngtgn could be pre-
vailed upon to supply the neceeeary pipes
Mr. Wallace hae alwaya been an advo-
cate of a sea-level canal He Rid that
engineers. naval men, and the shipping
lntl!{este all favored tbte method of oon-
atructton, and that the flret Walker Com-
mialllon wae removed for recommendlntr
this 11tyle ot canal Mr. Wallace's expla-
natloa of the Administration opposition to
this plan was that the Spooner act had
been passed wltll the Idea that tt would
fall to the lot of President McKinley to
exerctae the liberal powers therein con-
ferred. and that when Mr Roosevelt came
Into power he was afraid that It new
legislation became necessary to make It
possible to build a sea-level type of canal
he woul4 not be able to get the eame
amount of authority The speaker eaJd
the decision favoring the high-level plan
was not the of engineering but po-
litical preeeure
The Spooner act empowered the Presi-
dent, Mr. Wallace explained, to acquire
the Panama Canll.l and all concessions,
" lock, stock, and barrel," for $40.000,000.
It this could not be obtained on those
terms the Nicaragua lake route was to be
adopted. Mr. Wallace said that while
the necotlatlone were pending an addi-
tional charge of for Interest
wae tacked on, and that Mr Cromwell
worked bard to get this bill paid
" I reJ(ard Mr Cromwell as the sharp-
eat and shrewdest man of his type In
