THE PHILIPPINE
ARCHIPELAGO
The Subject of Discussion in Both
Branches of Congress."
CAFFERY AND DINSMORE SPEAK?
The Dill to Create a Hiver Pollution
Commission Was Defeated in the
House?Diplomatic and Con?
sular Appropriations.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 5.?Senator Caf
fery, of Louisiana, in a discussion of the
Philippine .question in tbe Senate, brolta
new ground In developing his position as
an antl-^xpansOnlst. With characteristic
courago of conviction he advoca led "turn
the Filipinos loess as soon as we can get
riJ of them. Thai would be better for
ti:em and infinitely better for us."
Mr. Caffery's argument was mainly a
discussion of the constitutional ques?
tions involved in the Phil .ip'.m. policy.
Soon after .the S?nate met Senator
Foraker, chairman of the Committee of
Pacific Islands and Porlo Rico, reported
a bill providing -?. form of government
for Porto Rico.
Mr. G?llihser, of ?New Hair.ipshir??;, pre?
sented a statement o?" the v;-.?.v. of him?
self and Mr. Perkins, of California, dis?
senting in part from the -majority report.
A bill was passed cioat'r.g a ne>.v divis?
ion of ti'.e Eastern Judicial District of
? Tennessee.
Mr.- G?llihser gave notice that at an
early date he would offer an amendment
to the rules of the Senate. providing that
all resolutions when introduced sha'.l be
referred without debate, unless unani?
mous consent be given for immediate
consideration.
A GREAT NAVY.
A resolution, offered by Mr. Pettus,
of Alabama? inquiring of tiie Secretary
of the Navy if he had declined to supply
to the Court of Claims information rela?
tive to naval court-martial, was laid be?
fore the Senate. After Mr. Pettus h_d
?disclaimed any desire to reflect upon the
Secretary of the Navy, and in a neat
speech urged Congress to build up a
great navy and to provide naval officers
and men, "head and shoulders above
those of any other nation," the resolution
was passed.
Mr. Caffery then spuke on the series
of resolutions offered by Mr. Bacon, cf
Georgia, and" cognate resolutions. lie
maintained that the Constitution extends
absolutely over the Filipinos. He dis?
sented from the. proposition that this
country should take over the Philippine
'Islands as proposed by Mr. Beveridge.
He said no more momentous question
was ever presented lo the Congress of
ihe United States than that of deter?
mining what disposition should be made
of those islands. Mo declared that the
question was broadly presented, whether
Congress could exercise sovereign power
and jurisdiction over the territory which
might be acquired by the United States
Government.
Mr. Caffery said he did not deny that
the united States was a nation or that
it had the rights of a sovereign power of
a nation.
AVITI! THE PEOPLE.
"But" lie said. "1 do deny ?that Con?
gress has the sovereign power of a nation
vested in it. 1 deny that there is any
part of tha government an unlimited
sovereign power. That power lies with
the unit known as the -people, and with
them alone."
The senator then entered upon a dis?
cussion of the various phases of a con?
stitutional law involved in" the general
Philippine question. He quoted exten?
sively from legal authorities in -(main?
tenance of his assertions that the Fili?
pinos were citizens of the United States
"entirely, completely, absolutely."
"They became so" ho declared, "by the
annexation of the ??f.'hilippines by the
United States and by the fact that the
Hag of this government lloats over those
islands, as that Hag carries ils citizen?
ship wherever it floats."
Mr. Caffery maintained that in the
Philippines there was, when our forces
arrived there, a Filipino Government?"A
de-facto iGovernment'' declared Mr. Caf?
fery, "but that had been destroyed by "lire
and sword, for the soldiers of the United
States, unequalled Uhe world over in
valor and military skill, have vanquished
the Filipinos."
Mr. Caffery maintained thatv- whatever
territory might be acquired by the United
States must be governed by the limita?
tions of the Constitution.
After a brief executive session the Sen?
ate adjourned.
In tin? House.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5.?This was sus?
pension day in the House and Mr. Bart
holdt, of Missouri, was rccignized to
move the passage under a suspension of
the rules of a bill appropriating $40.000
for the appointment of an expert scientific
commission to investigate the alleged pol?
lution of the waters of the Mississippi
river by the Chicago drainage canal. The
bill was drawn in general ternis cover?
ing the pollution of rivers which threaten
the water supply in more than one State.
Mr. Hopkins, of Illinois, and Mr. Rich?
ardson, of Tennessee, demanded a second
reading, which was ordered by unani?
mous consent.
This permitted forty minutes' debate
on each side. Mr. Barthoidt urged the
necessity of protecting the water" sup
uly of large cities. The bill, he said, had
been endorsed by the Legislatures of
fourteen States and tiie Board of Health
of sixteen States.
?dr. Cannon, of Illinois, opposed the
bin. If the proposed investigation should
be nvad-a at all. the services of both ? na?
tional academy of science and the Marine
Hospital Service were more feasible,
i Air. Pearre, of Maryland, supported the
?bill, urging that the investigation would
not he confined to tiie Chicago drainage
canal. It would cover rivers In all parts
or the country. He cited the case of the
Potomac river, which supplied Washing?
ton, "lift?t river had ^been found ta be
polluted.
BILL DEFEATED.
Mr. Richardson, in opposition, contend?
ed that the government had ample facili?
ties to Investigate and tihe courts to rem?
edy. The bills was defeated; ayes, 66;
nays, SV.
Mr. WMte, of North Carolina, rose to
a question of personal privilege, to re?
ply to an editorial denouncing his" course
in Congress, printed in the Raleigh <N.
C.) News-Observer.
Air. Robinson, of Indiana, under unani?
mous consent, paid a glowing tribute to
General Lawton's patriotic career from
tho time he left Fort Wayne, as a boy of
IS, to the time when he died upon the
battlefield in. the Philippines.
Mr. Unney. of North Carolina, sub?
mitted a report in the Evans-Turner con?
tested ?election case from the Fifth Ken?
tucky District for Turner.
Mr. Hitt, chairman of the Foreign Af?
fairs Committee, then called up the diplo?
matic and consular appropriation bill.
Mr. (Dlnsmore, tho ranking Democrat
on the comimltt.ee. called attention to
some of the f ore's ? questions in which
this country is concerned.
He said the Jurisdiction over matters
relating to Cuba, which .wa? not United

Ho had hoped ? bat some day Cuba
would be part of the United Slates, but
would never iavor annexation under such
conditions a.s surrounded the annexation
of the Hawaiian Islands.
Speaking of our duty in the Philippines,
Mr. Dinsmore said hi would prociajn
immediately to the people in arms against
us, that it whs not our purpose to ac?
quine permanent sovereignty, but to offer
our friendly a il to s?t up a stable gOi?
ernment. When such a government had
1-L-i ? * stabiishedi he said, we should with?
draw troni H-..1 Islands. (Democratic ap
Plntiff).
Proceeding he inveighed against im?
perialism in eloquent terms. He went
into the history cf the negotiations w th
Aguinaldo in an attempt to prove that
the latter understood that success against
tho Spaniards would mean liberty una
independence for the Filipinos.
In conclusion. Mr. Dinsmore said, speak?
ing of the alleged purpose of the ad?
ministration to hold the Philippines:
"1 believe as fully :is I believe any?
thing that, the moment this obligation
is imposed up us. as it will be unless
the people at the polls prevent It, that
that minute wall mark the beginning of
the decadanco and fall of the American
republic. In this beiief all history hears
me (rut.'"
Mr. Adams, of Pennsylvania, followed.
discussing his plan of reorganization of
the consular service.
Mr. Chirk, of Missouri, a member of
the Foreign Affairs Committee, spoke
against the Philippine policy of the ad?
ministration.
"As a private citizen." said ho. "I wish
(he President long, life and prosperity.
As a politician 1 hope his death is set
for high noon March 4, 1!)0I." (Demo?
cratic applause.)
He would sacrifice as much? for his
country as any man. but Mr. McKinley
was not the country.

It is also believed-that the treaty looks
to an international understanding on this
point.
This tn_.-i.tv wets arranged between
Secretary Hay and Lord pauncefote. who
are the principals, and who manifested
that fact bv signing the treaty.
As soon as the treaty Is ratified and the
ratification shall have been exchanged
the United States will be at liberty to

of an Isthmian canal unfettered by any

of allowing to ?British citizens as to the

There is absolutely no quid pro quo

THE SITUATION
IN FRANKFORT
(Continued from First Page.)
factions and the seemingly irreconcilable
differences in their contentions on the
most important points at issue. It soon
became evident that the meeting could
not deal with the question of a transfer
of state offices or even with the respec?
tive claims of the parties.
All it could hope to accomplish was thc
removal of some of the obstacles that
stand in tho way of securing an ;idedi?
cation of these questions by some tri?
bunal -upon which the princip?is can
agree. The Democrats at ?rst were in?
clined to press their demands to the
Ismit, requiring the withdrawal of troops
from the Stato buildings at Frankfurt,
the recognition of Beckham as Governor
without any further action by the Legis?
lature, on the reports of the Contest
Boards, by which Goebel and Beckhntn
were declared to have been elected, after
which the main points in controversy
were to be adjudicated by due process
of law.
MOVED BV SENTIMENT.
Something of .sentiment moved the
Dem?crata to make th? claim for the
recognition of the legality of the actions
of the Legislature since Governor Taylor
issued his proclamation adjourning that
body to meet at London, Ky. They wish
to ?stablish the title of William Goebel
as Governor at the time of his death.
The Republicans showed no disposition
to make such extrem? concessions. They
have elected to stand on the legality! of
Governor Taylor's proclamation, though
the abatement to some extent of their
belligerency of the authorities at Frank?
fort was reflected in their arjruments.
The re-establishment of the civil au?
thority and suppression of the military
wore chietly aimed at.
The meeting between the representatives
Of the administration of Governors.Tay?
lor and Beckham was the centre of In?
terest in the political situation to-day.
Lieutenant-Governor John Marshall and
Attorney David Falrleigh came down
from Frankfort on an early train and
consulted with legni advisers of the Re?
publicans. Later they were joined by {
General Dan. Lindsey and T. H. Edelen, |
Judge Robert Barr, and Postmaster Bait- i
er, of this city. These six represented ,
Governor Taylor at the conference.
For the Democrats there was present j
Senator Blackburn. ex-Governor J. B. j
McCreary. Judge Robert J. Breckenridge, ;
Democratic candidate for Attorney-Gen- j
eral, and Colonel Phil. Thompson.
Immediately upon arrlvul in Louisville j
each delegation withdrew for private con- {
fcrence. f
JOINT CONFERENCE. !
The joint conference was begun shortly ?
before 5 o'clock. Attorney Falrleigh, of ;
tho Republicans, who was understood to j
be the direct representative of Governor j
Taylor, and Senator Blackburn did the ?
most of the talking. The stands taken i
by the two parties wore so far apart that |
four hoars passed by with little progress, j
Finally things began to look more !
hopeful.
Shortly after midnight the Republican
and Defhooratic conferees in session at :
the Gait House came to an agreement. ?
and a document was drawn up for signa- ;
tures.
It is said the agreement is dcclosdly 1
favorable to the Democrats. Governor j
Taylor is to withdraw me troops from the ;
State buildings at Frankfort and send ;
them home. . ?
The order convening tho Legislature at ?
London, Ky., Is to be revoked, and the !
regular sessions of the General ?\ssem- j
bly are to be resumed at the State Capi?
tol" without molestation. !
It is believed the understanding arrived
at to-night will result in an amicable j
settlement of the. dispute between tho
two parties in this State and do away !
with the dual governments now assert- ?
Ing themselves. ,
Congratulations for Beckham.
FRANKFORT. KY., Feb. G*.?A large
number of telegrams of congratulation
were received by Governor Beckham to?
day. Among them was the following:

tions of distinguished Kentuckians.
Innumerable messages of condolence
were received by the family yesterday
and to-day from Kentuckians. Few came
from outside the State. Although Goe
bel's friends here are many and true, ex
ternullv there was no show of grief in
the citr.
Under stress of the tremendous dread
of worse to come, the little courtesies ot"
life seem to have been forgotten. No
crepe or drapings of mourning were to be
seen in the town.
The people who hold the Capitol and
State buildings did not even ity the Bag
at half-mast. They may have forgotti-n
to do so. or the bitterness of the strife
may have preventea such an ordinary
tribute of respect.
