RELEASE THE PRISONERS
The President Requested to Protect
Strong Resolution Beported by
the Foreign Relations Coiuinl;
tee in the Melton Cae.
The. following resolution was submitted
'to the Senate yesterday by Chairman
Davis, of the Foreigu Relations Committee:
"That tlie President be empowered to
take such measures as .in his judgment
maj be 'necessary to obtain the release
from the Spanish government of Ona Mel
ton, Alfred O Laboide, and William Gil
der, and the restoration of the schooner
Gciupctl'or to her owner, and to .secure
thlt. be is authorized and requested to
employ fjch means or exercise such power
as may be necessary."
Thib action of the committee Is largely
in response to the resolution introduced
last week by Senator Berry ot Arkansas,
who made a vigorous speech showing that
-the Government should act with a firm
hand to serurc the release of Ona Melton,
and that a demand should be made upon
Spain to that end.
It is not unlikely that this report wm
be debated in the Senate, hut what action
will follow is problematic There is, of
nonine, a chance that, even If the Senate
acts on this and similar resolutions hav
ing a teudency to di-mlaj the baud it the
Administration, what is done in the Senate
will never be acted on In the House,
and so the game of inaction will be com
as the history or tno-Comp"itrT s
capture is familiar to all readers of news
papers, the follow lng BSiri from the
icport of the Committee on Foreign de
lations, accompanying the lenolnuon, will
"The conduct of Spain, as hereinbefore
detailed, constitutes such delay and de
nial or justice and such .111 actual In
fliction of in;u-itice upon tht'e men as to
make it the duty of this Uovrament to
demand repaiation thereror, irrespective
or any art which these prisoners may have
committed up tc the dare of Their cap
ture A moug the acts of reparation which
ought to be demanded should be the
release ot these captives "
"They have been tried and sentenced to

the ground that uoh a court martial h.id

again been brought to trial. In the mean
tlmet the have been Ribjected to pro

unquestionably citizens of the United States,
Gilder Is a British subject, but h3 was a
sailor upon an American vessel when
taken, was acting as its mate, and It Is
the opinion of vour committee that he is
entitled to he protected by this Govern
ment. He was serving under the flag,
and he is entitled to be protected by it.
"in our opinion. nese acts of delay and
denial of justice and of the infliction f
Injustice, vitiate and make void any right
which Spain had in the beginning ot this
transaction to proceed criminally against
anvof these men- Thl Government .-jhould
demand thntthov be et at liberty and that

SOUGHT POLICE PIIOTECTIOX.
Bad Boy Daniel, However, Did Not
Escape a Whipping.
The police in the Second precinct station-house
were startled by an apparition
which suddenly confronted them about
6:30 o'clock yesterday morning. A col
ored boy, entirely naked, dashed into the
room nud snouted
"Save me! Oh, Lordy, save me!"
His dark hide was covered with perspfrn
Uon and the lad appeared to be badly
"What Is the matter, boy, and where
did you come from?" asked a patrolman.
"I've Just come from home because my
aunt tried to beat me to death."
The boy gave his name as Daniel TInney,
thirteen years of age, and his residence as
No. 445 P street alley, and told a har
rowing tale of how the woman was going
to skin him alive. A blanket was thro.vn
over the nude lad and he was placed In a
Later In the morning the case was re
ported to Humane Officer Samuel Wilson,
who Investigated the circumstances. He
fcuad that Daniel had reme d away
from home all night and when he sneaked
into the house about daylight thH morn
ing, his aunt . who Is aNo his foster-mother,
his parents being dead, determined to pun
ish him for roaming the streets all night
with bad characters. She prepaied a
stout switch and had stripped him for the
chastisement when the boy with a yell
sprang through a window and ran like a
deer to the police station.
Tbe humane officer returned Daniel to
his aunt, clad in a red blanket. She
promptly unveiled his form and as Mr.
Wilson was leaving the alley he heard
the "swish, swish" of the stout switch,
which told that Daniel was receiving the
deferred chastisement with Interest added
for running naked to the station house and
telling the police lies.
