UNITED-STATES' RIGHT TO
SULU ISLANDS QUESTIONED.
German Official Iteporta Declare Sot-
erelarnty Over Archipelago Was
Kever Vested In America
Washington. May IS. Germany's efforts
to impugn the sovereignty of the United
States In the Sulu Archipelago, have at last
been officially disclosed. Tho disclosures
are made In a volume of comprehensive re
ports on "The Law of Civil Government
Under Military Occupation," made to the
Secretary of War. by Charles E. Magoon,
law officer of the Division of Insular Af
fairs. War Department.
The question raised by Germany to the
sovereignty of the United States over the
Sulu Islands, was presented by the German
Ambassador and declared that the military
government In the Philippines Is without
authority to regulate, restrict or prohibit
trade with the Inhabitants of the Philip
pine Islands and. In support of this conten
tion, the Ambassador advanced these pro
position: That tho United States did not acquire
sovereignty over the Sulu archipelago by
the conquest thereof, nor waa sovereignty
there ever confirmed unto the United States
by the treaty of Paris, for the reason that
Spain had never acquired sovereignty In
said archipelago, nor waa Spanish sover
eignty recognized and Internationally estab
lished. 1 the rights secured to Germany and
Great Britain and tho other Powers by
tho protocols are not vested by a grant,
then they are rights derived from a con
tract between the respective sovereignties
of Spain, Germany and Great Britain, which
contract was In force at the time the
United States acquired sovereignty over the
archipelago, and the obligations of the con
tract. Incumbent upon Spain, passed to and
became binding upon the United States.
Mr. Magoon declares that "the rights"
recognized by the protocols entered into by
Spain. Germany and Great Britain were
those constituting sovereignty, and he finds
himtelf unable to agree with tho Ambassa
dor that Spanish sovereignty was not recog
nized and internationally established.

August Frank, D. R. Francis and
Mayor Wells Made Addresses
Many Ladies Present.
The Jewish Hospital, at No. M12 Delmar
nvenue. was dedicated yesterday afternoon
amidst the most auspicious surroundings.
Long before the dedicator" exercises took
place, a denso throng had collected and
busied themselves Inspecting the building,
which Is a very Imposing and substantial
four-story brick structure, situated on one
of the highest and most advantageous
spots In St. Louis. The entire building has
not yet been finished. The foundation for
the east wing of the building has Just been
completed, and when finished it is Intended
to use this portion of the building for ward
purposes. Perhaps tho most notable fea
ture of the building Is the operating-room,
which is considered by high medical author
ity to approach perfection. IJght la ad
mitted from all sides and the room Is en
tirely constructed of marble and tiling.
Tho exercises were held in the uncom
pleted basement of the east wing of the
building. Mr. August Frank, president of
the hospital, acted a chairman of tho
In the opening address Mr. Frank briefly
described the history of the Institution, and
thanked those to whose liberality and hear
ty support the hospital owed Its existence.
He went on to say that the Institution is
the outgrowth of a movement started two
years back by a few ladies and gentlemen
who foresaw tho necessity for a Jewish
hospital which should In no wise be sec
tarian In Its work. Hearty thanks were
extended by the speaker to Mrs. Kahii,
Mrs. Julius Weil, Mrs. Godlove, Miss Ida
Kohn and a number of others who lent
their best efforts In time and money to the
aid of the hospital. In conclusion he
stated that at all times the institution will
receive and take caro of tho sick who ask
Bhelter and service, and that neither na
tionality nor religion should be taken into
consideration in the work of relieving the
distressed and suffering, for which the in
stitution was founded.
Mr. Frank was followed by the Reverend
Doctor Leon Harrison, who paid an elo
quent tribute to the spirit of the times,
which, he said, was the moving factor in
spiring willing workers to extend them
selves In the cause of suffering humanity,
and that he looked forward to tho time
when Intellectual rather than commercial
supremecy should be the goal of man.
Ex-Governor D. R. Francis said that It
was a hopeful sign of tho times when men
laid aside their ordinary vocations and
le-nt their best efforts to a movement for
tiie alleviation of humanity and the pro
motion of brotherhood. He stated that the
Jewish Hospital would present itself as a
worthy spectacle to the distinguished vis
itors who arc soon to pay their respects to
St. Louis, and, as president of the Saturday
and Sunday- Association, bade them wel
come to participate In its benefits.
Mayor Wells followed Mr. Francis and
elicited much applause by the manner In
which he approved of the worthy efforts
of the supporters and benefactors of the
Jewish Hospital. The exercises were ended
with short talks by Doctor Herman Tu
holsko and the Reverend Doctor Samuel
A bright occasion was made more bril
liant by the number of fair ladles In attend
ance. Fully 2,500 people were present at
Apparrntly Preparing to Receive
Proposition Looklnsr to Set
tlement of Strike.
Hazleton, Pa., May 18. The visit of Ralph
M. Easlcy, secretary of tho National Civic
Federation, to strike headquarters and his
conference with President Mitchell of the
United Mine Workers late last night was
the only Incident of any Importance that
claimed the attention to-day of the labor
leaders and others around the Valley Ho
tel. Despite the denials of the labor leaders,
the members of the Civic Federation and
tho coal operators, all of whom have thus
far rigidly adhered to tho policy of abso
lutely refusing to anticipate any move In
connection with the strike. It Is believed
here that the federation Is quietly prepar
ing to receive any proposition that might
possibly be offered by either side.
This belief Is strengthened by the fact
that only twenty-four hours elapsed be
tween the time the conference was held
at Washington between Senator Hanna,
President Gompers of the American Fed
eration of Labor, who is also n member of
the Civlo Federation, and Mr. Easlev and
the hitter's arrival here.

Atlantic City, N. J., May 18 The quin
quennial convention of the Independent Or
der of the Free Sons of Israel met to-day

J. H. Goldsmith of New York, secretary.
The principal work of the day was the
reading of the annual report of the grand
master of the order, Julius Harburger.
Considerable discussion was Indulged In pri
vately by the delegates over tho sermon of
Doctor Emile Hlrsch of the Israel Temple,
Chicago. In which, It Is claimed, he made

the Christian Sunday. The sermon and
proposition were condemned.

The Reverend George n. Kinsolv-

Annual Shaw Sermon.
TELLS OF NATURE'S WONDERS.
Messages Which Plants Bring to
the Christian World Services
Are Held at Christ
At Christ Church Cathedral yesterday
morning the Reverend George H. Kinsolv
Icg, Bishop of Texas, preached the annual
flower sermon provided for in the will of
Henry Shaw. The church was decorated
with cut flowers frum Shaw's Garden, and
a special music programme was given. Mr.
Klnsolvlng said, in part, preaching from
Isaiah, 1111, 2 "For he shall grow up before
him as a tender plant, and ns a root out of
"When that stout old mariner and Infatu
ated Spanish soldier. Ponce de Leon, In
search of the fountain ot perpetual youth
and the elixir of life, sailed from what has
lately become a part of our possessions,
Porto Rico, he first sighted land In the most
southern portion of our Union, on Easter
Sunday. Historians tell us that all nature
wns In harmony with the day. The country
discovered was radiant with a wilderness ot
flowers, and the matchless verdure of the
bceno raised the npirit of the adventurer to
a poetic conception, and he called the now
land Florida, giving to it the name of the
holiest and sweetest of all the festivals ot
the Christian Church.
"I come to you from a land which could
ns Justly be named Florida as that portion
of our continent which first burst upon the
astonished gaze of Ponce de Leon, with all
Its entrancing prodigality of life and beauty.
Those Fame strange and dreamlike ad
venturers, the Spaniards, called my land
Texas, the place of friends, a characteristic
which It ha retained even unto this day,
and God grant It may retain it forever.
And we havo our flowers, also. In most
lavish and bewltchliur profusion About 230
varieties of wild flowers bloom In the
grounds around my house every spring, and
yet nothlns more beautiful than the deco
rations of this church In which we are as
sembled. Nature may be more kind to us,
but you have assisted and cultivated na
ture, until nature almost outdoes herself.
The Fenst of the New Creation.
"What day can be moro appropriate than
this to consider the lessons of tho fruits
and flowers of the earth as Mr. Shaw by
his will provides that wo should do In a
special manner once a year? Whitsunday
Is called Pentecost because it was the fif
tieth day from that point In the celebration
of the Passover when the sheaf of the first
fruits of the harvest was waved. To the
Jew It wa the feast of the giving of the
law and the reminder of the coming of
seed time and harvest, which would culmi
nate in the autumnal feast of the Taber
nacles. To the Christian It Is the feast of
tho new creation
"Do we not read how In the first dawn
of creation the Spirit broode'd over the wat
ers and his overshadowing presence repre
sented tho life propagating principle whlcn
changed nature Into a gTucious mother
bearing for her children Infinite variethH
of life and manifold forms of beauty, giv
ing fodder for the cattle nnd herbs for the
use of men? Therefore we do not dedicate
this day to a novel purpose, nor divert It
from Its profoundest significance when we
devote Its hallowed hours to a consideration
of the subject suggested under the terms of
tho will ot our departed benefactor.
In the 1'lnnt World.
"I would ask you to follow for a. little
while nnd let us sit In the presence of the
rlan world and question tries- quiet, lovely
handmaids of the Lord, these Innocent
children of nature. They have voices and
can speak lessons of deepest wisdom, :f
you and I only have ears to hear and the
capacity to understand what they are al
ways so ready to tench. In interpreting
nature men often fall (o read and under
stand what Is spoken and written there.
It is a faot that many who make a special
study of nature are often Its poorest inter
preters as far as regards all Its deepest and
Inner meanings. They are like bewllderrd
travelers In the midst of a roaring forst
nnd the multitudinous sounds fill them only
with confusion and dismay.
"Let us lay aside for the moment the con
sideration of human nature with its Im
perfections, Its evils and Its perplexities,

In the kingdom of plants. What are plants?
What do they mean? What do they teach
concerning the wisdom and goodness of

the spiritual realm?
"The vegetation world Is such an Insep
arable part of our life and observation
from our Infancy up that very few peop:o

animal life would be Impossible without It.
Plants aro tho beginning of organic life on
the earth. Of all their klndi the most signi
ficant for illustration aro the lichens. To tho
superficial Fiance these would appear the
most Insignificant of the vegetable creation.
Very few ot them are eaten by anlmal.very

GARRY FIGHT INTO
CITY AND COUNTRY
Illinois Democrats Unite Forces
for a Vigorous Campaign
CONFERENCE HELD AT CHICAGO
Plans Discussed for Defeating the
Republicans in Cook County
and the State in the
BT STAFF COrtnESPON'DENT.
Springfield, 111., May 18. Activity among
the Democrats of Illinois is becoming very
pronounced. The naming of a large num
ber of leading Democrats In Chicago to act
as an "Advisory Committee" with the Cook
County Democratic Committee, Is the most
pleasing event of the week, so fur as coun
try Democrats ore concerned. This Ad
visory Committee was named on Saturday
and Includes Democrats of all factions
gold, sliver, labor, and every kind and de
nomination. They are all Democrats, but
not ofilceseekers, and the only officeholders
are the Democratic members of the bench
In Cook County.
Tie Cook County Democracy Is expecting
great things from the conference with this
Advisory Committee, it Is the general be
lief in Chicago that the Cook County Re
publican ticket can be easily defeated.
Mayor Harrkon calls It. "the officeholders'
trust." nnd Chairman Carey of the County
Committee has expressed the opinion that
It will be easy to beat It.
While the Republicans nominated a ticket
of chronic officeholder;) at the dictation of
Lorlmer and Jamleson nnd Smyth. It Is con-
uuentiy Leueveu mat tne Democrats win
relegate to the rear all their professional
and give the pluces for the most part to
nonprofessionals. In fact the Democrats
propose to go to the other extreme, and
make up a ticket all the people can sup
port. While the Republicans cater to the
machine and ofllceholdliig classes, the Dem
ocrats will make n bid for the votes of
business and professional men and the tax
payers. .Vcrv Life to Country Democracy.
This evident disposition on the part of
Cook County to strengthen the Democratic
party has Infused new life and enthusiasm
in the country districts. The position of
Chairman John 1. Hopkins against the vi
cious plan of electing a State Committee
two years before it manages a campaign
will also be neartlly Indorsed by country
Democrats. As Chairman Hopkins rightly
states, the rulo Is obsolete, and works In
Jury to the party. Chairman Hopkins's an
nounced determination to resign from the
committee and also the chairmanship will
probably be taken as nn example by other
members, and the present committee wilt
likely retire and clear the decks for the
new committee which will be chosen at tho
coming State Convention. There will prob
ably be no opposition to the Incoming com
mittee taking immediate charge of the
campaign for this year, organizing for the
battle and rrosecutin? the work with vigor.
The prospects for Democratic success are
most flattering, while Republicans aro torn
with dissensions. There Is an evident de
termination on the part of the Republicans
who do not like Governor Yates to defeat
his plans and humiliate him. He can be
Injured most In the It-gl-lative districts, and
there will bo no sorrow In thousands of
Republican hearts if the Democrats elect
the next United States Senator In Illinois.
The antl-Yates Republicans believe this
would be an easy manner of retiring tho
youthful Governor from the leadership of
the organization In this State. They have
not yet reached the point where they can
look up to Mr. Yates as they looked
up to John A. Logan or Senator Cullom or
John R. Tanner. Thy want to get rid of
Yutes, and the surest method is to defeat
his candidate for United States Senator.
Republican Row Over Chnlrmnn.
There Is a cloud hovering over the success
ful faction to-day. It may cause a dissolu
tion of partnership, but the chances are it
will be patched up. If Is over the selection
of a chairman of the State Committee. The
Lorlmcr-Hopklns section do not want Fred
Rowc re-elected chairman, and Governor
Yates Is very anxIou that Rowe should 4J
chosen ns a vindication of himself and an
Indorsement of Rowe's management of the
last campaign, and a rebuke to Cullom.
Reeves, Deere, Sherman, Dawes and Mason.
Lorlmer declared for Daniel Hogan as
chairman before the State Convention. At
the convention he switched to I;n Small.
Mr. Hopkins was satisfied with Hogan, hut
when Yates Insisted on Rowe so vehemently
he settled on Luman Hoy, secretary of tho
State Board of Pharmacy, who lives In the
Hopkins district, nnd who Is an appointed
The nleht the STalc Convention adjourned
half a dozen or so of the members of the
new committee agreed to support Hogan,
and a committee was Instructed to carry the
news to Hognn. Governor Yates heard of
It next day and he immediately sent tele
grams to ever' member he thought ha
could control, exprepslng the hope that they
would not bind themselves to a ennd'date
for chairman, as he desired the re-election
of Mr. Rowe. He asked for reilies. nnd
some of the members agreed to be guided
bv hi? w'shes, while others were diplomati
cally evarfve. One of the latter wrote to
Hogan and declnred notwithstanding tho
request of Governor Yntes ho would con
tinue in hi support of Hogan if the latter
Now, one don't have to hit Major Hogan
with a sledgehammer to make him see a
point- He was so anxious to relieve his
friend from the voluntary pledge to sup
port him that he didn't wait for the mall
to take his answer
"Under the circumstances," he wired, "I
couldn't think of being a candidate for
chairman. Much obliged."
IllB Three Coaldn't Airrce.
There was a. meeting In Chicago yester
day between Yates. Hopkins and Lorlmer
to settle the dispute. They couldn't agree
and adjourned with the question open for
a week or two longer. The Governor's
friends Insist a malorlty of the committee
are friendly to Yates. On the other hand
It Is boldly alleged that Lorlmer and Hop
kins, with the half dozen or so "mavericks"
In the committee can defeat Dowe nnd the
Governor. By "mavericks" are meant the
members who owe allegiance to the de
feated Cullom-Mason-Dawes-Sherman fac
tion. A lieutenant in the Hopkins-Lorlmer
camp suggested that Rowe be elected chair
man and Paddock secretary, both being the
choice of Yates. After a month or so
Rowe could resign and Mr. Hoy take his
place. This. It was believed, would pre
serve the dignity of the Governor, vindicate
Rowe. and In the end Hopkins and Lorlmer
would get the man they wanted by the time
actual hostilities opened. There is no
denying that the defeat of Rowe will be
taken cs a. notice of the dissolution of the
partnership owning the present machine In
the State. It will elevate Hopkins and de
grade Yates to second fiddle. Naturally
Governor Yates does not contemplate the
position he will occupy with pleasure. He
1 not likely to take second place unless he
Is forced to do It. And that Is why Rowe
will run the coming campaign ns chairman
of the State Committee If Mr. Yates can
control a majority of the State Committee.
The question Is. Can he control a majority?
It is a close proposition.
Down In the Twenty-fourth and Twenty
fttth congressional districts the Democrat!
are buckling on their armor to battle with
Pleasant Thomas Chapman of Vienna, and
George W. Smith cf Murphysboro. the Re
publican nominees for Congress. There 1
better than n fighting chance to defeat bofi
the Republican candidates. The nomination
of Congressman J. R. Williams of Carml
to carry the Democratic standard against
Chapman Is a settled fact, and Williams
Is one ot the most brilliant men In the
West, and Is the best campaigner In South
ern Illinois. The chances In favor of hla
election are decidedly good.
Democratic sentiment In the Twenty-fifth
district has not yet crystallized around any
particular candidate for the nomination, so
far as I am able to learn. There Is splen
did material In every county, nnd any one
on a dozen Democrats who might be named
could make Mr. Smith climb the tallest
tree In the district.
Kern MUaeit From Cannnalspi.
It 1 unfortunate that Congressman Kern
has decided not to be a candidate for re
election this year. He has made an excep
tionally good Congressman, and has made
manv friends among Republican. At tho
same time, he has won the respect of a lot
or Democrats wnc were lusewarm in his
Interest two years ago. The district Is Re
publican, It Is true, but Rodenberg, the Re
publican candidate, baa succeeded In stir
ring up a' lot of bees in his own party, and
they are waiting for election day to fill his
epidermis full of stings.
