AVASHINGTON, Xov. 25.-The Senato
ti>day completed the appointment of com?
mittees ' for the Fifty-eighth Congress,
adopted the motion providing for tho re?
consideration of the vote by which the
Nowlands joint resolution for tbo an?
noxatlon of Cuba was reforred to com?
mittee, and made the Cuban reciprocity
bill the unfinished business,
The first speech on the merits of the
Ouban bill was made by Mr. Carmack
(Dornoorut). of Tennessee, who opposed
the bill and said that nothing less than
general tariff revision would give the
Mr. Carmack began by saying that In
his message the Pre.sldent had urged the
ratification of the Cuban treaty with
reasons which appeal to diverse motive?
In the human hcaru "Ho told ub," the
Senator went on. "that we must ratify
It to save our honor and help our trade.
It was an opportunity te worship God and
get your money back; to be diligent in
business while serving the Lord. He pre?
sented tho Cuban treaty In the double as?
pect of a bargain counter and a mission?
ary box. Happy Is the Republican admin-,
Istratlon that was driven by' a seflsh'
motivo to a righteous deed and could per?
form a Christian duty without exorcising
iinv of the Christian virtues."
Mr. Carmack said he was willing to
hear any appeal to conscience, and If
given a treaty that was llboral to Cubn
and Just to the United States, he_ would
vote for it. But no man could pledge his
faith for a treaty which Itarslf violated
the pledged faith of the country, nnd on
the ploa of opening the markets for Cuba,
slammed tho door against forty million
customers In South America.
If this mensuro would reduce the price
of sugar It would bo an argument In Its
favor, but tho larger part of tho sugar
imports would still bo subject to duty,
and the tariff would bo added to all.
The authors o? the sugar tax promised
to reduce It by ten million dollars. AVo
wcro to pay this sum for this treaty. It
retitiired us to give up not only tho right
to reduce taxes, but reciprocity with other
"You violato your solemn promise to
reduce taxes," he said, "and you do it
In the name of honor; you sc% your right
to make commercial treaties and you do
It In tho name of reciprocity."
Mr. Carmack referred at length to the
reciprocity policy of Binino nnd McKinley
and quoted from a speeoh by Mr. Dolll
\er, of Iowa, In which tho latter had said
that every lino of the wisdom of Mr.
Elaine had been eliminated from the
statutes. Ho agreed that this was true,
and If so. who was responsible? If the
Democratic party had taken It off the
Republican party had refused to put It
Continuing, Mr. Carmack declared thnt
Mr. Dolliver was right when ho said his
party's failure to carry out reciprocity
was a blow to protectionism.

Lord Rosebery Speaks to Big
Throng on Fiscal Question
Confronting Great Britain.
DISEASE AN IMAGINARY ONE
Mr. Chamberlain, He Says, Pro?

Make Matters Worse.

LONDON, Nov. 2?_Lord Rosotwry
spoke to throe thousand persons on the
fiscal question at the Surry Thoatro to?
f-?? lordship's remarks were for tho
most part devoted to ridiculing Joseph
Chamberlain nnd his policy.
Lord Rosobory referred to Mr. Cham?
berlain as "a modern Joroinlah," whose
assertions that the country had been
desolated wore refuted by facts. Mr.
Chamberlain snld tho country was ruined,
whllo Mr. Balfour, on the other hand,
said tho country was extremely pros?
perous, hut soon would bo ruined. The
board of trado bluo book, however, had
decided against both of theso conten?
tions. Tho speaker said that the con?
dition of the pooplo gononilly has boon
more Improved, while the worklngmon
wore enjoying greater prosperity. If
distress existed In the country, It was
bocauso of tho unwlso expenditure of the
government, which, during the last
decade, had Increased sixty-two per
cent., whllo during tho previous ton
years thore bed beon an Increase of only
soven per cent.
"Instead of curbing this growing ex?
penditure," ?aid Lord Rosobory, "Mr.
Chamberlain discovered a disoaso which
had po Axlstcnco, and proposed a remedy
whloh would niako tho disenso worse?
namely, til? Increase In the cost of every
Tho ronl outcome of Mr. Chamber?
lain's polloy, his lordship behaved, would
bo a state of soolnllsm.
"Tho first roeult of Mr, Chamberlain's
policy," continued Lord Rosehory, "would
be to plunge Croat Britain Into bitter
fiscal warfare wllh our cousins in the
United States, ns tho iohuU of which
Oreat Britain would loso everything and
gain nothing, It \vould nionn a practical
suvoranco far moro deplorable than a
flscnl sovoraneo, and would blight tho
horvis of tho two nations."
In summing up, Lord Rosobory said
that Mr. Chamberlain hud not proved hid
naso, and thai the ovlls of which he com?
plained oxlsted only In his Imagination
A real remedy for any adverso emuli?

(By Associated Press.)
SAN FR-AN CUSCO. CAL.. Nov. S6.-<
Bob Fitzsimmons proved to-night that
he was not a dead one when he out
boxed and outgoneralled George Gardner
for twefcity full rounds. Fltaslmmon?
was as awkward and as cunning as of
yore, and, apparently realizing that he
must foster his strength, there was.not
a moment when ho was not carefulness :
personified. Whllo the old man could
avoid punlshmont from Gardner, . he;
could not knock his opponent out, al?
though he landed a number of vlciou?
From his performance to-night Gard?
ner Is not in Fltzslmmons' class.; He
landed on tho old timer once. In a while,
but Fltzslmmons was always KOlng away
from him an,d the blows were harmless. '?.'?
Several times Fltzslmmons apparently
hnd Gardner almost out, but ho was,'?"
cither too tired or lacked his old strength ,
and could not land a knockout punot?. :
Fltzslmmons wa^ .very skilful in block?
ing and doging Gardner's blows, and hi
i he clinches ;uiii bi-eak-aways: nat, veo- -
careful. The fight did , not pleaeo the.'
spectators, and trie men in the ring
wero frequently hissed When they wont
through a round without apparently try?
ing to fight.
WORST HE EVER SAW.
Referee Eddie Graney. at tho close of
tho contost, said that It was the worst
fight ho ever saw. Ho wns forced to give
the decision to Fltzslmmons because the
latter secured the knockdowns, but other?
wise did no damage. It was apparent
that neither man was qualified to claim
After tho fight Fltzslmmons appeared .
to bo overjoyed over his victory and claim?
ed that the reason he did not knock Gard?
ner out wns that he broke tho knuckles
of both hnnds early In the contost.
It was either for this roason or because
Fltzslmmons chose to act mainly on thti
defensive that the fight was not finished .'
long before the twentieth round was over.
