The Twelfth Infantry regiment came
to Fort Douglno in May 1902, to which
post It was assigned after having been
relieved from service In the Philippines
throughout the Spanish-American war.
To many of its members, therefore, the
eervlce in the islands- will not be new,
although, naturally, there have been
many changes since the regiment's re
turn. Before leaving on this trip the
companies at Fort Douglas were re
cruited to their full quota, some 200 or

300 men having arrived from Fort
Logan, Colo., during the past week
on transfer to the departing regi
ment. Men whose term of enlistment
hnd nearly expired and who did not care
to re-enlist, as well as those who were
found to be physically unfit for service
in the islands, were left behind. There
were v-y few of the latter class, and
the soldiers who left yesterday vcre an
exceptionally fine looking body of men.
There was a total of almost BOO men In
the six companies. That they will
render a good account of themselves
In the new field is not questioned.
The roster of officers in charge of the
Twelfth Is as follows: Col. Bubb. com

WHO WILL CAPTAIN

chairman of the Republican National
committee, and the names of Senator
Scott of West Virginia, Senator Pen
rose of Pennsylvania and Representa
tive Dick, who Is slated to be Senator
Hanna's successor In the Senate from
Ohio, are most frequently mentioned.
A suggestion also is made that Sen-1
ator Aldrich no doubt will be connected
with the committee in some capacity,
probably as chairman of the finance
It Is said of both Senator Scott and
Representative Dick that they were
closer politically to Senator Hanna
than any other men, and having been
through two National campaigns with
him, know more about his methods and
his connection with National politics
than any other men.
Col. Swords, who for a long time was
sergeant-at-arms of the National com
mittee, recently wrote a letter to Sen
ator Scott concerning Senator Hanna,
In which he said: "In the last conver

to meet in Springfield, HI., on July 4,

The basis of representation will be
one delegate from each Congressional

and for each 2000 or majority fraction
thereof cast for Gen. James B. Weaver
for President in 1S92; the Indian Terri
tory and Oklahoma Territory five dele
gates each, and three delegates from
each of the other Territories.
The declaration of principles for the
People's party formulated and Issued by
the National Committee In joint session
today reiterates oft-repeated declara
tions, and adds:
"In both of the great political parties
of the Nation are to be found two ir
reconclleable factions, one In favor" of
Governmental usurpation, tending to
the establishment of a new feudalism,
and the other standing for Industrial
and political liberty.
"In the People's party of the Nation
lies the only hope of the perpetuation
of popular Institutions. We ratify and
rcaflirm the fundamental principles of
tho platform of the People's party
adopted at its National convention in
Omaha In 1892."

FIGHT OVER NAVAL
BILL GROWS WARM
Storm Centers Encountered and Meas
ure May Be Recommitted Senate
WASHINGTON. Feb. 24. Two storm
centers were encountered In considera
tion of the naval appropriation bill in
the Houbc today. First the great lakes
training station went out of the bill on
a port of order, after a wordy battle.
The building programme proposed in
the bill then met criticism and blocked
further progress of the measure for the
day. Mr. Burton of Ohio, the echoes of
whose sensational speech for peace on
Monday had hardly died out, moved to
strike out the provision for the single

supplemented his Monday's speech with
figures showing that the United States

speeches In which Mr. Burton was de
clared not to be in line with his party.
fn tho event of the defeat of this mo
tion and the acceptance of tho whole
building programme a motion is to bo
made tomorrow by Representative
Meyer of Louisiana to have the bill re
commitcd to the Naval committee with
the following Infractions:
First, to provide for a coaling station
and dock at Olongapo, P, I., Instead of
a navaj station.
Second, to eliminate the provision for
two armored cruisers, and the armor
thereof costing $1C,000,000.
Third, to place a limit of $338 per ton
as a maximum price for armor plate,
with the provision for an armor plate
factory to cost not over 54,000,000, if
the armor cannot be produced within
the limit prescribed.
Fourth, thnt all vessels herein pro
vlded for under the head of ' Increase

SENATE AMENDS THE
WASHINGTON. Feb. 24. The Sen
ate spent the greater part of today in
discussing an amendment to the agri
cultural appropriation bill striking out
the House provision giving authority
to the Secretary of Agriculture to in
spect Imported food products when
mlsbranded or suspected of impurity.
The amendment was suggested by
Mr. Aldrich, who said the provision
opened the way for an encroachment
by the Pecretary of Agriculture on tho
duties of the Secretary of the Treasury
and was calculated to cause a duplica
tion In the service" of the two officials.
MessTS. Lodge, Beverldge, Patterson
and others supported Mr. Aldrich.
Mr. Proctor, in charge of the bill, de
fended the provision and had the aid of
Messrs. Dolllvcr, McComas, Eacon and
The discussion was closed by substi
tuting the provision of the act of 1900
bearing on the same point. This solu
tion of the problem wai suggested by
Mr. Proctor and was accepted by all.
Consideration of the bill practically
was concluded, but final action on it
was postponed until tomorrow. In order
to allow an Inspection of It as amended.
