POSSESSIONS AS COLONIES
Republicans of Ways And Means Com
mittee Fdfor the View.
Important Decision Relatlie to Porto Rico and
the Philippines - Constitution Docs Hot Ex-
tend to Them -Hawaii Not Mentioned.
Washington, Jan. 30. Tho Republi
cans ot tho Ways and Means Commit
tee tonight laid down deflnlto lines
upon which tho Republican leaders of
tho Houbo havo decided to legislate for
Porto Rico bo far as tariff duties oro
concerned. Tho decision reached Is ex
ceedingly Important, as It commits tho
Republicans of tho Ways and Means
Committee to tho theory that Porto
Rico and tho Ph'llpplncB aro not tho
territory of tho United States within
the meaning of that section of tho Con
stitution which provides that customs
and -revenue laws shall be uniform
throughout tho United States. In oth
' cr words, It commits them to tho view
that our now possessions can bo gov
erned as colonics and that discriminat
ing duties can bo laid against them.
Tho Republican members of tho
Ways and Means Committee to which
the Payne- bill was referred, today do
clded to favor a substitute which will
be offered when tho bill comes up for
discussion before tho full commltteo
tomorrow. This substitute provides
that tho tariff to Porto Rico against
goods from foreign countries, except
the United States, shall bo tho Bamo
as that against goods entering tho
United States from such countries, but
that goods imported Into tho United
h'.atcs from Porto Rico or from tho
United States Into Porto Rico shall pay
twenty-flvo per cent of tho tariff upon
foielgn goods. That Is between Porto
Rico and tho United States there shall
bo a horizontal reduction of soventy
nvo per cent in tho tariff: Tho sub
stitute also provides that the revenue
from such tariff duties shall bo used
to defray tho expenses of administra
tion In tho islands.
j no action of the Republicans today
amounts to a decision that tho section
ot tho Constitution ubovo referred to,
which has been tho subject of a special
Investigation of a sub-commltteo for
s'overal weeks does not apply to our
Insular possessions and that tho Con
stitution of tho United States does not
extend over them.
Crusade Against Rate.

ment house yesterday afternoon, L. ,A.
"Thurston appeared on tho scene and

schemo will probably be put Into opera
tion Sunday, tho cleaning up to take
placo tho next day. However, the Citi
zens' Sanitary Committee will decldo
on n form of procedure before that
tjtne, tho eamo to bo submitted to the
Board of Health for approval.

Misstatement of Facts.
Tho statement was made In an af

Permanent Occupation of Spion
Kop Was Impossible,
Boers Still Hold Their Lines Unbroken
British May Withdraw From
London Is Dubious.
New York, Feb. 1. London papers
havo little news from South Africa to
day and thero Is not much comfort In
that little, except the beleaguered gar
rison of LadyBmlth did not despair
when they learned of General Buller's
second rovcrse, but wero still hopeful
Tho public docs not bellovo General
Buller's army Is capablo ot rcllovlng
Ladysmlth, so tho talk of a fresh move
ment docs not Insplro hope. It Is not
true, as has been reported, thnt Gen
eral Bullcr has withdrawn all his
troops south of tho Tugela. His big
guns were still at Mount Alice on Sun
day, with Lyttlcton's brlgado covering
According to tho latest Information
the letlrcment from Splon Kop was In
evitable. When reinforcements and a
few guns arrived during tho night, tho
position still held by the British forces
was so confined that tho various regi
ments wero huddled together and It
was Impossible In the darkness to make
proper arrangements to meet tho storm
ot shell and bullets that tho daylight
would bring upon them.
Tho campaign In Capo Colony does
not develop rapidly. Tho Boers at
Colesburg, Steynsberg and Stormbcrg
seem to bo content it they can keep tho
British troops in check whllo Cronje
operates between Moddcr river and
Klmberley, holding Mcthuen quiet
while the Boers bombard tho Diamond
Dr. Lcyds popularity In Berlin seems
to bo worrying tho London papers. Ho
is to hold another conference with
Count von Buelow, tho German Foreign
Tho alarm over tho alleged defonso
lcssness of tho British Isles increases.
The London Telegraph publishes a dis
patch from Portsmouth saying:
"In tho naval circles of Portsmouth
thero Is a strong impression that be
foro long tho Government will mobilize
tho rcscrvo squadron and commission
several cruslors to bo added to It.Thls
Impression Is borne out by the fact that
tho naval officers who aro unemployed
havo been notified to hold themselves
In readiness to proceed on nctlve ser
vice at short notice.
"The work on ships In hand at Ports
mouth is being pushed with all speed.
Only tho most necessary repairs on
several cruisers, now refitting, have
been taken In hand.
"That tho channel squadron should
nt tho last moment have been retained
in British waters Instead of being sent
direct to Gibraltar, Is also considered
a Blgn that somo Important step may
be taken. The squadron remains for
ten days or a fortnight at Bantry and
then proceed to Suda Bay or Gibral
tar." Al this, too, at a time when tho tone
of the continental press is not more
hostllo toward England than it has
oeen for years; when no threats
against England aro heard In Russia
or Germany or oven in France.
Splon Kop, a Horror.
London. Jan. 30. A special dispatch
from Frero Camp, dated Friday, Janu
ary 20, 9:10 p. m. says: "I havo just
ridden In hero, having left General
Buller's forces in tho new positions
south of tho Tugela, to which they re
tired in conscquenco ot tho reverse at
Splon Kop. The fighting, both beforo
and after tho occupation of tho moun

Splon Kop is a precipitous mountain,
overtopping tho wholo lino ot kopjes
along tho upper Tugela. On the east
ern sldo tho mountain faces Mount
AHco and Poegeltor's Drift, standing
at right angles to tho Boor central po

abrupt steps to tho lower lino ot kop

right outposts ot Warren's forces, it la
impassably steep until the point where
tho nek joins the kop to tho main

which allows easy access to tho sum

General Warren, but they had to cross

London, Feb. 1, 4 n. m. Tho supple
mental lists of casualties fill two col

estimates that tho total exceeds 2,000.
I.io 40 per cent loss at Splon Kop Is
greater than any British force over
suffered .except possibly at Albuera,
Spain, In 1811.
Tho Admiralty has warned nil half

The Government has received a letter
from Judge Hartwcll stating that the

all land transactions of tho Hawaiian
Government prior to tho receipt of

remarks that Mr. Chllllngworth very
positively told tho reporter to bo moro
circumspect In his languago. "Wo havo
