Spooner Will Try to Fasti His Phil

Mime Time.
From Tfie Journal liurt.au. Room US, J'osi
iiuildina, Washington.
Washington, *Feb. S. —The Cuban ques
tion is beginning to assume definite form
M far as the administration plans are
concerned. Senator Platt of Connecticut,
chairman of the committee on relations
with Cuba, has prepared a resolution which
expresses in detail what the administra
tion believes the Cuban constitution should
.contain regarding the retatlous of the
island with this country and the rest of
the world. This resolution was submitted
informally to a number of republican sen
ators yesterday, and at 4 o'clock it was
taken to the White House by Mr. Platt.
Later he carried it to the war -depart
ment where he had an interview with
Secretary Root.
The resolution in brief calls for the
Cuban constitution to contain these guar
anties:
First—A guarantee of protection to the
life and property of Spaniards resident in
the ibland.
Keednu • A lawful and binding pledge to
recognize the bonded debt Spain attempted
to fasten i.pon Cuba during the last days
of the Spanish sovereignty.
Third —Reimbursement in part to the
■United States for the cost of the Spanish
■war.
Fourth—A coaling station and naval
base for the United tSates.
Control by the United States of
all foreign treaties made by the Cuban
gov«>rn;ne?it.
Senator Spooner accompanied Senator
Platt to the White House and the war
department and it is now known that
Spooner is anxious to arrange for the
passage of his Philippine resolution at the
came time with the proposed Platt resolu
tion. Such a program would not only dis
pose of the Cuban question for the present
but of the Philippine question also and
probably blunt the edge of both so far as
the campaign of 1902 is concerned.
It is the desire of Senators Platt and
Spooner to attach their amendments to the
army appropriation bill when it reaches
the senate.
Obviously, if congress outlines the policy
tc. be pursued by the president toward
Cuba and the Philippines.' no reason will
remain for an extra session. It is said
the president, while deeply interested in
Senator Spooner's proposition to add his
bill as an amendment to the army appro
priation bill, is much more deeply con
cerned over the Cuban policy.
No attempt has yet been made to learn
whether the democrats will regard with fa
vor the plan to add these Cuban and Phil
ippine resolutions to the army bill. The
democratic senators are so busily engaged
in fighting the subsidy bill that "they have
little time for the proposition of a pro
gram regarding other measures. With tbe
subsidy bill out of the way, the atmosphere
will be much clearer and the program for
the rest of the session could be easily ar
ranged.
Some of the northwestern congressional
delegations have already filed recommen
dations for army appointments. Nearly
all are of officers now serving in the Phil
ippines who desire reappointment. Others
are of the men who served in the Spanish
war, who will be eligible to appointmet
under the ruling of the secretary of war.
Representative Tawney has indorsed
Perrin L. Smith of Winona for a staff ap
pointment. Smith is now serving as lieu
tenant in the thirty-ninth infantry in the
Philippines. Representative Morris has
recommended Captain George H. Gibson
of Duluth. now serving in the thirty
fourth infantry, for a first lieutenancy,
and Representative Ed"dy has recom
mended the retention of Captain Cushman
A. Rice ot Willinar, son of ex-Governor A.
E. Rice, in the new army.
Mr. Rice ns now in the Philippines.
Mr. Eddy has also recommended the ap
pointment of Sergeant Engebridgscn of
Lowry, Polk county, formerly of the Thir
teenth Minnesota. Messrs. Stevens and
Heatwole are now in telegraphic corre
spondence with men in their districts de
siring appointments, and will probably
make some recommendations in a few
days.
Senators Nelson and Clapp and Repre
sentative Fletcher have had several con
ferences recently in reference to ap
pointments from Hennepin county. Mr.
Fletcher has had many applications, and
he will probably have two places to fill
in his own right. Through the courtesy
of the senators, the Hennepin county
quota may be increased to three or four
places.
Representative McCleary has decided
upon cne man from his district, but wiTt
not announce his name until he is realy
to file the recommendations for both
places at his disposal. He has been tele
graphing applicants and he expects to
make up his mind about the other place
in a day or two.
State Senator Hiler H. Horton of St.
Paul would have accepted appointment to
a staff office, but he is a civilian and
therefore barred.
The North Dakota delegation has recom
mended Captain A. W. Cogswell of Devils
Lake and First Lieutenant Fred Smith
of Grand Forks. G. N. Fay of Oakes, is
an applicant for a paymastership. That
is a hard job to get under present condi
tions. He is 56 years old and it is pre
sumed the forty-year maximum will apply
to paymasters. If it does Fay's name
cannot be considered.
The South Dakota members have
recommended a number of men from that.
fctate, but will weed out the list when they
find out how many places they will get.
They will not make any names public for
the present.
Congressman Russell of. Connecticut of
the ways and means committee summar
izes the issue between;the two nouses by
•aying that "the question is whether,
in ■■ -educing the > burden •of <■ war. taxation,
■•, we shall give 65 p«r cent rof the aggre

MRS. NATION
BACKS DOWN
Saloon Wreckers* Meeting
Ends in a Row.
SHE REFUSES TO RAID
f $ 're a Coward!" Shouted One
(fyj, Followers.
LORD DOESN'T WISH IT, SHE SAYS
Meeting; Was Making: Arrangement!
for a Wholesale Itiiid ,
'■ ut : 'i'«ii»«-ka.
.. : ."' . '
Topeka, Kan., Feb. B.—Mrs. Carrie Na
tion, s the temperance crusader, is alleged
to backed down last night for the first
time since she started to destroy the illegal
traffic in lk<uor in Kansas.
Armed with hatchets, about thirty of her
followers gathered in secret to arrange a
night raid on Topeka "joints." Several
male students- at: Washburn college had
promised to come to town armed after mid
night to take part in the raid and to see
that .the crusaders were not molested. It
was decided to saunter out at 8 a. m. and
demolish every "joint" in town. ". :
Mr*. Nation"* Bomb,
Suddenly, when everything seemed to
have been arranged satisfactorily, Mrs. Nat
ion began putting on her wraps. She
said she was going home. Instantly her
followers were in an'uproar. Expressions
of surprise were followed by words of con
demnation.
One woman who had spent a greater
part of the day collecting hatchets and
soliciting aid, rushed to Mrs. Nation,
and, shaking her fist la the Wichita wom
an's face, shouted excitedly:
"You are a coward, Mrs. Nation, you
are a coward."
"I am not a coward," shouted Mrs. Na
tion. "I will go this minute with any one
woman and smash a joint."
A dozen women loudly expressed their
desire to go with their leader. But Mrs.
Nation again changed her mind, saying
she was tired, adding, it is stated, "The
Lord does not wish me to go to-night," and
left the room.
Joints Are Cloaeil.
While the women stood in little groups
discussing their leader's action, Mrs. Na
tion, accompanied only by a reporter,
made the rounds of the "joints" to satisfy
herself that all were closed. The keepers,
apparently anticipating a raid, had closed
and barricaded their doors, and at mid
night Mrs. Nation went home.
About her Chicago trip, which had been
planned for next week, Mrs. Nation said
she could tell nothing definite.
"I will go when the Loni directs me,"
she said. "At present He warns me to re
main here."
She said, however, that she would go to
Kansas City to-day, "not to smash," she
added, "but simply to lecture."
Prefers to Leeinre.
Some of the volunteer members of Mrs.
Nation's band of crusaders say that their
leader has been induced to give up the
smashing of joints to go on a lecturing
tour. Mrs. Nation is expected to speak in
Kansas City, Omaha, Sioux City, Dcs
Moines and Chicago, and she has refused
many other offers.
MRS. NATION LIKES IT
Delicious Half Hour While the
Women Were Scolding Her.
Kansas City, Feb. B.—A special to the
Star from Topeka.. Kan., says:
Mrs. Nation, speaking of the storm of
reproaches directed against her because
of her refusal to lead a night raid, said:
It was a delicious half hour. I never was
so happy in my life. When I first came here
I had to do all the talking, but last night
j I had to stand back and listen to them scold
j ing me. They were mad all the way through
i bef-ause I would not help them smash. That's
| turning the tables, isn't it? Don't blame
! them for calling me a coward. I confess I
was almost a coward when I saw the indig
nation of those women. Verily, it was de-
I monstrated "hell hath no fury like a woman
| scorned."
Mrs. Nation laughed heartily over the
matter as she pointed out what she inter
preted as enthusiasm caused by her
actions.
MRS. NATION IMMUNE
Topeka Has No Ordinance to Stop
Her Saloon Smashing.
Topeka, Kan., Feb. B.—City Attorney
Gregg said in discussing the charge
against Mrs. Nation for smashing the Sen
ate saloon Tuesday:
"The city has no city ordinance cover
ing the destruction of personal property,
but under the laws of Kansas the state
can prosecute Mrs. Nation if what she
did'can be proven to be personal prop
erty."
Mrs- Nation addressed both houses of
the legislature test evening on the saloon
traffic.
"Now, gentlemen," said Mrs. Nation in
an eajnest tone, "you can remedy this con
dition by knocking out the clause in the
prohibitory law which gives the county
attorney the right to summon witnesses,
but refuses him the right to compel them
to testify. You would do it if common
murderers were running loose; why not
do it in this case?
"I have been forced to do this smash- '
ing business. lam going to tell the truth
to you; you have not been doing your
duty. A good, solid vote is the best thing
In the world with which to smash the
saloons. You refused me the vote, and I
have had to use a rock.
"The saloon man is a malicious pauper.
He thrives off the life blood of the men
of this nation. Whisky makes perjurers.
I would not believe a joint-keeper on oath,
even if it was only about a dog fight."
SMASH THE DRUGS
Chicago Wreckers Have Serious Oh-
Jection to Medicine».
Keto York Sun Special Saroiou
Chicago, Feb. B.—Five women, fash
ionably dressed, wrecked the drug store
of I. L.. Quales, 108 Milwaukee avenue, and
only the determined action of J. S. Frank,
proprietor of a store at 1144 Milwaukee
avenue, prevented serious damage in his
place. Dr. Dowie denies they are mem
bers of his flock. The women professed
to be followers of Dr. Dowie.
"You are an imp of the devil," shouted
the leader in Mr. Quales store. "You
sell medicine to sick people, but w* pray
for them," and the woman emphasized
her remarks by bringing down a bottle
of wine on the plate glass showcase with
such force that the glass was cracked
from end to end and the bottle broke in
her hand. A strong right swing in the
direction of Quale's sent the proprietor
under the counter and knocked two more
bottles of wine to the floor, where they
broke into a thousand pieces.
"Hurrah for Dowie!" yelled another one,
FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 8, 1901.
\ -=r- v \( y\ ?
of .the band, as she threw a pound weight
through a dozen bottles of medicine on
the shelves. "We'll teach you to pray."
The noise of breaking glass attracted a
crowd and the women rushed for the
door.
LIABLE TO THE LAW
Authors of Prairie City, lowa, Let-
ters May Be I'roiecnted.
Special to The Journal.
Sioux City, lowa, Feb. B.—The practical
jokers who a few days ago pinned upoa v
door of a hotel bar here a warning note
signed "Mrs. Nation and her hatchet,"
may get into serious trouble and perhaps
the penitentiary as the result of another
joke just perpetrated. Letters were received
by various Chicago saloonkeepers this
week dated Prairie City, lowa, which read
as follows:
Sir: You are herewith peremptorily noti
fied to abandon immediately the sale of in
toxicating liquors, to close your present prem
ises and destroy every and all vile intoxicant
in your possession. Unless this order is fully
carried out by Feb. 15, our operating commit
tee, now on their eastern trip, will deal sum
warily with your ungodly properties.
The names of eight women, alleged resi
dents of Prairie City, were signed to the
letters. It was taken to Postofflce Inspector
Stuary, who pronounced it of a defama
tory and threatening kind and therefore
in violation of the postal laws. Inquiry
at Prairie City disclosed the fact that all
the names were fictitious. Steps will be
taken at once to discover the guilty per
sons.

. '■. . ; -.' Salary.
The Schiftman republicans propose to
use abludgeon in defeating the Hurd bill
to save the fat fees of the oil inspection
department for the state.
W. W. Rich, a Ramsey statesmtn, of
fered in the house this morning the draft
of a law applying the same changes to
the inspection of logs and Knnber, which
the Hurd bill seeks to introduce in the
inspection of oil. fl
This afternoon, Mr, Rich defined his
position in an interview. It is not neces
sary to read between the lines in his case,
because the purpose by which he is actu
ated was frankly avowed. Mr. Rich does
not say that the Hurd bill is iniquitous
from the spoils' point of view, but he does
maintain that there exists no reason for
singling out the oil inspector. Says Mr
Rich:
is If It Is a good thing to skin one 'republican,
let's skin 'em all. [ Let's get - into the game
and go after the, sheriffs and the clerks of
courts and the registers of deeds and every
other official who has been lucky and now
enjoys fat picking; If it is a magnificent
long-headed, fine play to make it hot for one i
man because he lands a good ofilce, why not
carry the idea to it* logical conclusion. In
this county (Ramsey) there are some men
making almo?t twice as much as the oil
inspector. There 'is the clerk '. of^ courts;
there is the sheriff. And this money comes
out of our | own people; it is not paid by a
foreign corporation.'
"Do you propose to press the meas
ure?" was asked.; ;:/■
"Yes. with all the capacity, I have. This
bill will not be smothered, it will not bo
sidetracked, it will not be fooled with."
This, last was said with great determina
tion.
Terms of the Bill.V.'.
By the, terms of the measure the sur
veyor-general of logs and lumber in «aeh
of the districts is placed on a sal
ary of $1,800 a year, a mere. bagatelle to

There has also "been placed before the

SENATE WILL REST
Night Sessions, However, May Be
Renewed Next Week.
ATTEMPT TO END SHIP DEBATE
Semi tor Frye Asks That Time to
Vote Be Fixed—Conger's Au
thority for Demands.
Washington, Feb. B.—The night sessions
of the senate have been abandoned by the
republican majority for to-night and to
morrow night. It is stated they may be
renewed next week. The republicans say
that if the republican majority is willing
and determined to go ahead with the ship
ping bill the minority must take the re
sponsibility of forcing an extra session for
the appropriation bills.
Mr. Frye of Maine made an appeal in
the senate to-day that a time be fixed for
a vote on the subsidy bill—a time far
enough off to permit the necessary lati
tude for proper debate.
Mr. Jones of Arkansas said he did not
think that at this time any agreement
could be made for a vote.
Mr. Hale of Maine said that the pending
measure was in effect a political measure
and that the majority would have to as
sume the responsibility for it.
Mr. Tillman had no great objections to
a vote on the bill, provided he could be
absolved from any responsibility for per
mitting the passage of the measure, be
cause the more rope the republicans were
given in drawing money from the treasury
the sooner would they hang themselves.
Mr. Chandler (N. H.) thought the so
lution of the question was in an extra
session of congress. He did not think
the passage of the appropriation bills at
this session was vital.
Mr. Money (Miss.) declared his willing
ness to accept the responsibility for an
extra session called to pass appropriation
bills which might fail by reason of the
debate up on the shipping bill. "The
extra session will be your affair,"-said he,
"not ours. We can go fishing."
Mr. Pritchard (X. C.) spoke briefly in
favor of the shipping bill and the naval
appropriation bill then was taken up.
Mr. Pettigrew"s resolution calling on
the secretary of war for a copy of Gen
eral MaeArthur's report as to the condi
tions in the Philippines and for other
papers relating to the Philippines, was
adopted.
liiK'ht on China.
Senator Berry introduced a resolution
requesting the president to inform the
senate whether the United States minis
ter to China has joined the representa
tives of other powers at Peking in de
manding the execution of Prince Tuan or
other Chinese officials, and if so by whom
h ? was authorized to join in such demand.

to fight hard for the twelfth man upon
the resumption of the case at 2 o'clock,
but expressed the belief that he would
be selected before adjournment.
This proved to be the case.
The ease with which this morning's
recruits were sworn in indicated the dis
position to stumble over no technicalities
in order to find the last man.
Judge Brooks said at noon that he
would permit no unnecessary delay in the
commencement of the trial proper aa
soon as the jury was complete. If the
twelfth man should be corraled early this
afternoon, he said, he would consent only
to an adjournment until to-morrow morn

After a hard wrestle with the unwilling

a reply.

Jurors' Relative* Call.
Judge Brooks' announcement that mem
bers of the jury would be allowed to con
verse with their relatives in the presence
of a deputy in the courtroom was welcome
to the families of the captives. Several
relatives took advantage of the privilege
to-day. In addition to Miss Raymond,
who came to see her father yesterday,
Miss Pabody, sister of Juror No. 1, had a
half hour's visit with him at noon.
The indisposition of Mr. Raymond and
the possibility that illness may yet remove
him from the jury, recalls the dramatic
death of one of the jurors who sat on the
Hayward case.

man out of work. So pronounced Is this

man wears a mustache. The twelfth should,

Hamilton jury. He was landed at 3p. m.
At 3:15 court adjourned until to-morrow
morning at the request of the defense.
The question of holding court on Tues
day. Lincoln's Birthday, is being discussed
by the jury. If the jury wishes to do so,
court will sit on that day.
Juror Raymond's health "was slightly im
proved this morning but not enough so to
give any assurance that he is to be a well ,

be closely-watched and any alarming symp
