FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
From Our Own Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 24,1303.
Mr. Roosovelt made a million or
moro Democratic votes when ho at
tached his name to the decision up
holding tho majority report of the
Schley Court of Inquiry. This is tho
opinion of many Republicans as well
as Democrats. Mr. Roosevelt's clever
dodge in placing responsibility ona
dead ni an-President McKinley-was
far from eic dit aol o to him and the de
served jolly he gave the, surviving
Captains who participated in the battle
off San Juan will blind nobody to the
main fact-that he has denied Schley
the justice for which he asked and to
which ho is en ti Jed, and Mr. Roose
velt will find that the people will hold
him and his party responsible.
Director Merriam, of the Census Bu
rean, has a double set; of irons in the
fire. Ho is af ter reappointment as the
head of the permanent Censns Bureau,
and he is aleo after the Cabinet port
folio of the new Department of Com
merce and Labor. The salary of the
Director of the Census is $7,500 a year,
only $500 less than a member of the
Representative Hamilton, of Mich.,
was the first Republican who has dared
to come out in tho open and make a
speech in tho House in defense of
trusts. His Republican colleagues
showed him by their hearty congratu
lations that he voiced their sentiments.
Representative Burleson, of Texas,
made a speech this week, on Mr. Roose
velt's sudden change of attitude toward
the trusts, that was a corker, because
it bristled with truths that no Republi
can can answer. He started by quot
ing Mr. Roosevelt's attack on trusts in
his Minneapolis speech, made when he
was Vice President, in which he caid :
"We ehall find it necessary in the fu
ture to shackle canning, as in the past
we have shackled force." Of the im
pression created by that speech Mr.
Burleson said : "Oh, if the 'strenuous
one1 could only be given an opportuni
ty. With his great ability, his keen
insight into actual conditions, with his
honest desire to correct these admitted
evils, with the apparent courage to
utilize his ability for the accomplish
ment of his desire-the very thought
of it brought cheer to the honest farm
ers of this country; the one class who
never ask special favors at the hands
of this government, bat who aro nt
present victimized by the trusts to the
extent of being compelled to pay from
40 to 800 per cent more for their agri
cultural implements that the same
articles manufactured by the same
concerns can be bought for in the for
eign territory adjoining us on the north
or southwest. The suggestion that
this canning could be shackled was a
solace and comfort to the meroautile
classes throughout the Middle West
and Southwest, who were straggling un
der the exactions of a powerful and
voracious railroad combine." Mr. Bur
leson then quoted the language of Mr.
Roosevelt's message to Congress in
which he referred to the trust mag
nates as "captains of industry," and
commented upon the sudden and radi
cal change, and added: "But this was
not enough, for by way of making
known his completo surrender, or
rather, to he charitable, I will say by
way ot* evidencing an abandonment of
all hostility on his part, toward trusts,
he has recently named the son of 'the
captain' of the 'captains of industry' to
speak the humiliation of Republican
America at the coronation of ah Em
peror and King. Tho trouble in this
case is that the strenuous one, President
Roosevelt; is a Republican, ho is] envi
roned by the Republican party, which
is directed and controlled by trusts.
This party has looked to trusts and
monopolies so long, for support and
assistance, turning its back upon the
people, that now notwithstanding the
strenuous one, honestly desired 'to
shackle cunning' when the opportunity
came, these old influences wore imme
diately thrown around him and ho
found himself overcome. He now
knows tho power of trusts, he now
knows their influence, he has been
taught it by those who surround him.
He is a Republican, lus environments
control him. He still worships tho
green snake. Asl lin vc said -1 have no
harsh words for him, only pity because
of tho resultant consequences of his
most deplorable surroundings. As far
as trusts aro concerned, henceforth he
is blind, ho cannot see; he is deaf, he
Representative Cochran, of Mo., has
received a letter of thanks from a com
mittee of Boer sympathizers, in Brus
sels, for having o fl ere il a resolution in
the House to invite President Paul
Kruger to visit this country as the
guest of the government.
Representativo Wheeler, of Ky.,
stands by the speech he made last
week, and bois getting hundreds of
letters from every section of the conn
try and from all classes of people as
suring kim that the writers think he is
on the right road. When Representa
tive Gillet and other Republicans this
week sought to take him to task for
his speech, Mr. Wheeler said that he
meant no disrespect to Prince Henry
or the German people and did not see
how what he had said could be tortured
into such a meaning. He told the Re
publicans who had said they would use
his speech as a campaign document
that if they desired he would circulate
hie speech iu their districts, together
with ttio Bpeech o? Gen. Grosvenor, at
his own oxpooBe, aud would debato the
question ou tho stomp with any Ile- <
publican who wished to moot him. 0?
tho speech itaelf Mr. Wheeler said:
"Before tho American people, I say un -
hesitatingly that I have not a word to
retract. 1 sincerely believe wo aro
drifting to a position hostile to Repub
licanism. I do not believe to ocoupy a
great position in th? world that it is
necessary for us to sacrifice our tradi
tional principles. 1 am a son of a for
eigner, and my love of tho republic
was boru aud bred iu me. I have been
charged in the press with being an
.ignorant agriculturist.' I am proud of
being the son of a farmer and tho son
of a foreigner, but I am ashamed of
tho boot-licking that characterizes tho
official class in tho republic to-day."
It waa thought that sneering at tho
Southern peoplo because of their race
prejudice-a prejudice that is shared
by ninety per cent of decent white men
everywhere-had becu abandoned by
Republicans as a method of stirring up
political strife, but Representative Gil
lett, of MasB.. mado uso of it in a
speech this week. The Southern Ipeo
plo can stand this if tho constituents
of Mr. Gillett can. Perhaps his ideas
might be changed on this subject if
some negro in his district would an
nounce himself a candidate for the Re
publican nomination to Congress.
After devoting tho morningsof near
ly threo weeks to telling his story of
the Philippines, which had already
been told in official documents, to thc
Senate committee on the Philippines,
Gov. Taft has switched oir to tho
House committee, and began to repeat
SOUTH CAROLINA DISGRACED.
Tillman and McLaurln liare a Fist
Fight in the Senate.
Washington, Feb. 22.-The most sen
sational scene that has been enacted
on the floor of tho Senate during the
present generation was witnessed this
afternoon by many senators and by
wondering and crowded galleries. The
central figures were the two senators
from South Carolina. Tillman, in the
course of a speech on the Philippines,
declared? when pressed by Spooner to
name hie man, announced that his col
league had been influenced by improp
er motives to vote for the ratification
X?f *the Spanish treaty. Senator Mc
Laurin was attending 'a committee
meeting at the time and was sent for,
and at the conclusion of Tillman's re
marks, arose to reply. As McLaurin
rose from his seat the silence was pro
found and tense. He said, in quiet,
deliberate tones, that he would be leas
emphatic in his remarks were it not
for the fact that he had hereto
fore uttered opec: fie and full denial of
his colleague's declarations. As it was
he would say that the statement of his
colleague was a wilful, deliberate and
m ilici?n H lie. At this Tillmnn rushed
toward his colleague, who was stand
ing only four or five seats away, leap
ing over tho knees of Senator Teller.
McLaurin scarcely moved a muscle
until Tillman threw himself upon him,
and then ho returned blow for blow
and grappled with his nRsailant until
several strong men intervened and
ended the altercation.
At tho instance of Senators Forakor
aud Burrows tho Senate then went
into executive session, during which,
by a unanimous vote, both Senators
were held tc bo in contempt. Tho
doors wore then thrown open and tho
two senators, by a voto of tho body,
were allowed to make a statement
which would tend to purgo them of
Tillman's talk was largely to the
effect that he had never before had
any experience in legislative bodies
when ho came here and at times failed
perhaps to carefully observe parlia
McLaurin began his statement by
saying that he had been sorely tried.
He told of his being in the committee
room when a message was brought to
him from a friend in tho Senate telling
him what Tillman bad said of him.
Ho did not seo how ho could have act
ed otherwise, but certainly meant no
disrespect to the Senate, and did not
feel that any of his actions or words
had merited a rule of contempt. Mc
Laurin started another sentence which
was to tho effect that if he heard any
more talk of that nature, but did not
conclude. A senator interrupted him.
Tho whole matter has been referred to
tho elections committee.

The Lasalle Baptist Churoh,
430-441 LaSalle Av., Chicago, 111.
The Rev. F. M. Royall was regularly
received into the fellowship of the La
Salle Avenue Baptist Church of Chicago
by reiteration after due confession. He
had been for a period a member of the
organization of which Mr. Dowls is head.
He came before the Church, made a hum
ble confession for his errors, after exam
ination by the deacons and all due cau
tion was received. He had been formerly
a member of the Reldsvllle Baptist
Churoh, N. C. Communication was had
with that Church, and upon the receipt
of tho fact that there were no moral
charges against the brother but that he
was excluded for heresy, and upon that
heresy being renounced Mr. Royall was
duly received. Wo are all happy that
the brother has returned from the error
into which he, temporarily, had unfortu
nately fallen ; and we hope that he will
be cordially received bj the brotherhood.
