Minister Barrett to the Secretary of State.
Bogotá, December 21, 1905.
(Mr. Barrett reports that upon further investigation it is shown that the conspiracy aimed to assassinate the President of Colombia in his residence last night. Former minister for foreign affairs, Felipe [Page 262]Angulo, is the chief of the conspirators. Confidence in the government has been restored by the prompt action of the President in arresting the conspirators and providing a speedy trial for them, and complete calm prevails.)
