TWO INDIAN SENATORS
IN CONTRARY POSITIONS
Messrs Curtis and Owen Hold Different
Views as to Tribal Relations
A Dramatic Incident In the Course of the Debate On
the Indian Appropriation Bill-TIie Army Bill Still
Before the House.
Washington. Feb. 27. A highly dra
matic scene in which two senators
with Indian blood in their vein, and
members of former Indian tribes, car
ried on an animated and acrimonious
debute, marked the proceeding of
the senate today. Senator Owen of
Oklahoma, a member of the Cherokee
nation, fought in a wordy battle to
have the word "late" placed before the
designation. "Five Civilized Tribes,"
declaring that he wanted to record the
death of the old tribal relations.
Senator Curtis, of Kansas, part Kaw
Indian, taunted his fellow Indian with
the statement he was under Ue con
trol of the secretary of interior. There
ensued a wordy battle that entertained
both the senators and visitors in the
galleries. When the senate voted on
the proposition it was against the
contention i Mr. (J"en.
Mr. McCreary of Kentucky, spoke
on the currency bill. After a fdrther
consideration of the Indian bill the
President Roosevelt transmitted to
the senate today thirteen treaty dec
larations, the product of The Hague
peace conference. The treaties were
accompanied by an exhaustive report
f the doings of the American delega
tion to The Hague and also a letter
of transmittal by Secretary Root.
The declaration forbids the dropping
of hifrh explosives from balloons in
time of war.
Three of the treaties did not receive
t?ie approval of the American delega
tion to The Hague. These conventions
were relative to the status of mer
chant ships at the commencement of
hostilities, relative to the conversion
of such ships into ships of war. and
tin' convention defining the rights and
!uties of neutral powers in maritime
war. The delegation also withheld its
approval of the explanation agreed
upon as to reason for non-action by
the convention on the complusory ar
EVICTION OF A COMMITTEE.
Washington. Feb. 27. The all pow
erful committee on ways ana means of
the house today was put to rout by
an overwhelming vote and ordered qut
of the capitoi to the new house office
building a block away. The various
members of the committee, hai by
Messrs. Payne and Dalzell, strenuously
objected to removal but they had only
a weak following. Protests availed
them nothing. The committee's pres

The army appropriation bill was dis

in the Hartje family there had been
improper relations between himself
and Mrs. Hartje. was read to the Jury
in the conspiracy case against Hartje,
his friend John T. Welshons and Hooe,
late todar. This Is the first time the
text of the depositions was made pub
lic. While it was taken for use In the
divorce case it was then decided not
to introduce it. The reading of the
document occupied nearly two hours.
It was a disgusting recital which Hooe
has since declared had no foundation
Welshons, a prominent East End
merchant, is accused of having plan

charges and preparing the several
statements, in the final deposition to
aid Hartjti In his divorce suit. Hartje
,'is accused of having conspired with
I Welshons and Hooe for the use of tes

I basis of the cases now on trial, the
three having been Indicted for conspir

TAKING A WIDER SCOPE
It is Intended That
At Present the Senators Are Engaged In a Considera
tion ot Keuterdahl's Magazine Criticisms of the
Washington. Feb. 27. The general
discussion todar among members of
the senate committee on naval affairs,
indicated that an investigation of the
charges. tf -defects in battleship con
struction will be extended to a number
of other questions that have attracted
public attention, among them whether
staff officers, such as naval surgeons
shall be given command of hospital
ships or other naval vessels. This un
doubtedly will result in reopening the
controversy between Rear Admiral
Brownson and Surgeon General Rixey,
which was disposed of by the president
supporting the latter in his contention
that a surgeon should be given com
mand of the hospital ship Relief.
1 Rear Admiral N. E. Mason chief of
the ordnance bureau, explained to the
committee today the workings of tur
ret ammunition hoists from the pow
der handling rooms and the big guns
of modern battleships. His testimony
was given with a view of refuting the
criticisms made by Henry Reuterdahl
in a recent magazine' article. Reuter
dahl charged that there was great
danger of accidents with straight
hoists and open turrets and that a
number of life destroying explosions
such as thosa on the Messouri and the
Georgia, were caused by faulty hoists.
Mason denied this and by comparisons,
with the ships of other navies, he en
deavored to show that American meth
ods are euual to anv.
.After an extended review of the dif
ferent periods in which changes had
been made in hoists. Chairman Hale
summed t'p. a statement as follows:
"Then, you believe that we have taken
every step that can be taken to control
and prevent this flare-back danger,
and that, so far as hoists go. they are
as sate as they can be made?"
"Yes sir, I do," repliedjhe Admiral.
Mr. Tillman referred to the charges
made by Reuterdahl that there might
at some time be need for emergency
hoists. Mason admitted that there
might at some time be need for emer
gency hoists, but he said there was not
room in the turrets for their installa
tion. He expressed an opinion that
the necessity for the emergency hoists
was not appreciably dangerous. It
was brought out that the hoist of the
new type in the turrets was not as safe
as the direct hoist. It was put in be
cause of-the insistent demand of of
ficers and seamen who believed it
would permit more rapid firing.
"It seems then." interrupted Mr. Till
man, "that victory Is more important
to the navy than the pixtection of hu
"Of course" responded Mason. "Men
of the battleships are right in think
ing that the ship that gets the most
shots has the greatest advantage."
"I hope the navr department will
go slow In v.-hat it does hereafter in
sacrificing safety to rapidity of firing"
said Mr. Ha!n.
Mason estimated that the cost of
chirg'r.g the turrets of all battleships
of the nvv so as to bring them up to
the most approved standard known,
would not be in excess of $16,000 for

ABOUT NAVAJO BLANKETS
It makes me laugh this thing of some curio dealers talking about
having Navajo blankets by the thousand. Why don't you know there
arc hardly a thousand Navajo Indian blankets on sale in the entire
territories of Arizona and New Mexico. If there were thousands for
sale you wouldn't want one because everybody else would have them,
and people of aesthetic taste are not willing to spend their hard earned
cash to acquire simply the eery day things tha( every old body has.
But If it's Navajo blankets you want. I have more of them in my
store than all other dealers in Phoenix combined. If you are in doubt
about it come and see. And I pride myself on my taste In Indian af
fairs as well as on my knowledge of what constitutes quality in a
Navajo blanket. Theee matters are among those that 'enable' me to of
fer low prices o good, staff. I don't have to make up on a good
blanket my loss on a poor one. I don't buy poor ones because I do
my own buying, and no red skin can fool me.
