Mr. Morgan spoke on the joint resolu
tion reported bv him yesterday from
the Committee on Foreign Relations in
reference to the case of Julio SanguilK,
whom he described as a regulailj natural
ized citizen of the United States who had
taken out his naturalization papers and
brought them to Cuba in 1S7S where
thej weie registered in the American
consulate and In the captain generalcv;
nnd where he had lesided ever since
Sangulllj had taken part in the I ist Cuban
revolution, where he had been grievously
wounded, bui had alwajr. denied any

Morgan made a staten ent of the facts
and circunistance- connected with San
guillv's airest, imprisonment and trial
Mr Mo: gait de-claieel that m the trial

there vvas no evidence implicating him,
and that much of the evidence was not
sworn to It would be asked, v hat right
had the United States to lntcrfc'ie' "Would
it be on the general ground that there
lad been a falte trial'' If the cae vvcic
put on that ground alone1, he held 11 at thcie
-v ould be ample icason in that foi the joint
resolution reported jcHcrdaj. But he
put the Tight and duty of interference ou a
higher giound, and that vas that all the
rights of this American citi7en, undei
the treaty, had been utteilj lgr.oied and
f At the close of Mr. Morgan's remarks Mr.
Allen consented to have his own resolution
refencd to the Committee on Foreign Re
lations, with the assurance from Mr. Mor
gun that it would be promptly considered
aud acted upon.
The joint resolution as to Pnnguilly oh
tained precedence, and the conpidoration
of it vvas continuel.
Mr Daniel, a member of the Committee
on Foreign Relations, vv ent ov cr the history
of the case, notwithstanding what he
made bj the Senator from Alabama San

most polite and courteous appeal, th.it his

Mr. Hale a'krd Mr. Daniel whcthei the
pi'ijorc of the Joint levolution was the
release of Kanguillj.
"That is the pun ort of it," Mr. Daniel
"Has not this whole nntter been the
subject of direct diplom ltic negotiation
betvueu the State Dcn.ntnient and the
Spanish government for the purpose of
securing the release or Sangulllj.' If so,
will the Senator state what has beci the
result; Is it not a fact that at the present
moment the State Department has con
ducted the negotiations tothe point that it
is exj ecting the release of Sangulllj with

Beroie Mi Daniel had time to .msvv er the
question, Mr Lodge erosEea the area, and
made .i whispered suggestion to him; and

"But the Senator will recollect," said
Mr H.ile, in remoimrativc tones, "that the
Committee on Foreign Relations is the
organ of tills bodj "
"I am not bound to j ield in j time on the
floor on that account," Mr Daniel re
plied "1 am the organ of the State w Iiich
I am icpresentiug.and when I get through
I willjield toanv organ that maj desireto

captain general of Cuba or the Queen of

When a laush follow ed this pointed
allusion, Mr Daniel promptlj disclaimed
meaning anvthing offensive
"I could sav something offensive," Mr
Hale remarked, "if I w anted to, but I
will not do so"
"I could i ot," Mr Daniel politelj re
pin d, 'even if I desired to"
"I hop"," said Mr Hale, "that, before
the diMuission ends, and It will not end

of the joint resolution "

Mr fraj, a ii'einbe-r of the Committee
on Foreign Rilations, lemarked that lie
had just seen a piess dispati li stating that
Sanguillv's counsel had withdrawn his
appeal, in onVr to facilitate his iclease
"I am unwilling," Mr Daniel declared,
"that an American citizen, illegallj de

diaw his appeal, but to stand on his rights
as an Amei ican citizen, and that there
were enough people in this counlrj who
respect their rights tosee that he was no
longer detained in a Spanish fortiess "
Here Mr Hale read a telegraphic dispatch
of this date from Havana, stating that
counsel for Sanguillv had tiled in court

Mr Hale commented, "the appeal is with

"I ki.ovv it from this," Mr. Trvc an
svvercd, "that Sanguillj has been conv Ictcd
of a crime, the punishment of which is im
prisonment in chains for life. He has
cn'ered an appeal to Madnd If that ap

crime, and judgment follow s, and he can

"And if I had mj waj," Mr. Trje ex

Mr. Hoai questioned the citizenship of
Sanguilly and refer red to conflicting state
ments ou the subject in the committee's
Mr. Daniel replied that he did not feel
called upon to go behind the action of
the State Department in recogui7ing the
citizenship of Sanguillj.
Mr. Vila rcfened to the fact that San
guillj- had srv ed in the Cuban insurrection
from 1808 to 1878. and that his naturaliza
tion paper bore date of 1678, so that he
could not postiblj have complied with the
law requiring five years' residence.
The discussion v. as still going on when
the morning hour expired, but unani nyus
consent was given that Mi Daniel should
conclude his speech.
Mr. Hoar brought up once more the
question of Sanguillv's citizenship; nnd
once more Mr. Daniel said that he vvoild
not go behind the record in the mailer

Mr. Hoar persisted, "in half a "dozen

was engaged in the Cuban insiurection up

that his naturalization paper m fiaudu
lent fetnguillv is no n ore an American
citizen than the Senator rrom Virginia is
a subject of Turkcj."
Mi Lodge rcplieel to his colleague, and
said that it w as not for the Committee on
Foreign Relations or for the Senate to go
behind the iccord of the Mipciioi coiut
of the c.tj of New Yoik until th.itiecoid
was overthrown Sanguillj was a natur
alized citizen He was not going to
haggle ovm the question.
The Committee on Toreign Relations,
Mr. Lodge said, was not seeking to pick
a quarrel with Spain; but It thought its
dntj to ask the action ef the Senate upon
the lesolution After a contemptuous al
lusion to tiie four great powers in their

So the Sanguillv joint resolution was

Mr White slid the action ot the Senate
jestcidav demonstrated that it was not
its purpose to engace in the business of
const lernig the appropriation tills, but
would consider a joint resolution which
could not pusiblv pas-, or which, if

not receive executive approval.

Mr Hill said that the premier or 'he

reponed the resolution yesteidaj, or had
agreed to its being reported, and had c
piessed the hope th it the Senate would
take it up todaj and past, it "I hem it

remarked, "'and then voted against its

'1 hese plajrul allusions impelled Mr. Slier

"lhe Senator from California seems to

I do not care to enter upon it I am in
