The speech of the day was made by
Senator Hale of Maine in vigorous op
position to this resolution and to tH
offensive Interference of the United
States in foreign i cstlons The senator
declared the spirit of militarism was
abroad in the land that our course in
volved the possibilities of war with all its

out the kindly action of Spain at the
time of our civil war when British built
privateers were prevented from remain

AX ANIMA1ED PHASE
Mr Hoar offered a resolution today
postponing all action on the Cuban
postponlnl al acton ques
tion until April S This resolution will
come up under the rules tomorrow and
may form the basis of opposition to an
adoption of the house conference report
f Another resolution by Mr Hoar was
adopted calling on the president for all
available iformation on the Cuban subject
Thp latter part of the dav was given to
the Dupont contest Mr Turpie of Indi
ana Dupont arguing against the claim of Mr
The Procced I n
At 115 Sherman moved the adoption
0 of the conference report accepting the
House Cuban resolutions The public sal
aries were packed
Mr Hale Rep Maine spoke energeti
cally against the resolutions In 1S70 the
same conditions existed and a effort
was made to involve the United States
Into the controversy The House com
mittee on foreign affairs presided over
by General Banks reported a resolution
similar to this one But fortunately for
the cause of peace and progres there
vas said Hale a man in the presidents
cnair whose love of liberty and patriot
Ism was certainly equal to that of any
member of the committee on foreign re
lations The message of Grant sent to
congress vas pertinent today as at
that time and was an unanswerable plea
against the present resolutions
Mr Gray interrupted to ask what re
sult came from Grants message
It had continued Mr Hale brought
the congressional resolutions to nothing
That message was so distinct s unan
fiverable that in the presence of that
great calm man all excitement disap
peared and the resolutions came to
naught
Portions of President Grants message
were read from the desk Mr Hale said
the insurgents now fighting In Cuba had
no legislature no courts no organization
such as General Grant had set forth as
absolutely requisite to the recognition of
a state of war Their power he said is
seated in straggling bands occupying
straggling camps and to ths day not
only have the insurgents not won a
battle but they have not fought in any
thing worthy of the name of a battle
Mr Hale compared the condition in
Cuba with that in the south when the
confederacy was recognized He said the
confederacy was completely organized
with lull legislative and executive
formid
branches established courts a
able anrv and navy Andyet at that
time our state department presided over
by Mr Seward protested to European
powers against
EVEN A LIMITED RECOGNITION
of the confederacy and always after in
It sisted on the rescinding of that recogni
tion
tionDid Spain ever rescind Interjected
Mr Mitchell of Oregon
Mr Hale said he was glad to hear this
inquiry as it lowed an answer to those
who seemed to think Spain was less
friendlv to us than other powers at the
time of the civil war No nation de
clared Mr Halo had showed the friendly
disposition that Spain had shown at
that time Never did se allow a British
built privateer to stay in a Spanish port
more than an hour When suh a priva
tr entered with American prisoners
Spain demanded and secured their re
lease
leaselr Hale said the only reason for the
public and press clamor again Spain was
that the country had been falsely and
mendaciously led with condition which
did not exist
Mr Hale referred to the statements
made by Mr Sherman a to the atroci
ties corrmStted by General Weyler I
had sJnce been shown that there was
an Ingenious effort to fasten on the
SpanishCuban situation of today events
of fifteen years ago But these alleged
events were
MENDACIOUS FABRICATIONS
fiction from beginning to cad set up by
someoody to distort public feeling
At this point a sensational event oc
curred which no one had anticipated and
which for a time threw the senate into
great excitement
Mr Hale said the Spanish minister
Scnor Dupuy de Lome ha made a state
ment a to the Inaccurate representa
tions against Spain I was not surpris
that In view of the attacks on Spain
that the minister had done this fittingly
and diplomatically
Mr Hale sent the Spanish ministers
statement to the clerks desk to he
read ltv had hardly been begun when
Senator DaVis of Minnesota arose and
Interrupted
I object said Mr Davis t the
reading of any communication coming
from the representative of a foreign
country on any matter transmitted to
congress through such channels and re
flecting upon members of this body
Immediately there was a stir on the
floor and galleries Mr Hale protested
against such an objection There was
nothing
nothingPERSONALLY
PERSONALLY OFFENSIVE
to senators in the Spanish ministers
statement I was not an attack on the
senate but was couched with a nicety
of deference t senators
Mr Mitchell of Oregon asked if it was j
not an invariable rUle that foreign min
isters credited to this country should not
publicly discuss political questions relat
ing to the affairs of the United States I
There were points ol order from var
ious quarters and many senators were on I
their feet seeking to gain recognition
The vicepresident announced the rule
that in case of objection to reading a
communication the senate must decide
by vote as to receiving it
Mr Teller of Colorado said the objec
tion to the ministers statement was not
based on Its offensiveness to the senate
but to the established rule that any com
munication from a foreign minister must
be submitted through the channels ot the
state department
Mr Morgan made a point of order
against proceeding vith the ministers
statement
Mr Hale had stood calmly during the
c
storm of protests He said it was a
MOST REMARKABLE FACT
that senators would not hear this state
ment of facts
Mr Frye suggested that Mr Davis
withdraw his pomtliof order and allow
the paper to be read and that in reply
the communication in the Washington
Post of a prominent Cuban sec
retary of legation In Washington
also
bs read This suggestion to
give the Cuban side a hearing was
received with a demonstration by the
galleries so pronounced that VicePrebi
dent Stevenson warned the specdtor
At 2 oclock the unfinished business
the Dupont election case was temporarily
laid aside Mr Sherman chairman of the
foreign relations committee gave notice
that he would Insist on action
When the Spanish ministers communi
cation had been read Morgan asked that
the reply of the Cuban secretary of the
legation be read but Mr Hale ilTlined
saying it could be read in the time ot
some other senator Continuing Mr Hale
sent to the desk and had read a com
munication to the New York Woild
from Di William Shaw Bowen atScim
munlcation not concocted in the organs
of the insurrection but written ly a
man compelled to tell the truth in a
newspaper compeled sympathies vere with
nspa1e insurgents but which was road
enough
TO PRINT BOTH SiDUS
The extract referred to General ey
ler as a erreatlv traduced man who
i had been systematically Attacked by
the enemies the Spanish cause This
communication extracted from an un
willing witness Mr Hale said he would
wiing place against anything written by Cu
ban in thLs tty
He also rearonl current news dis
patches of the burning by the insurgents
of thirteen towns and the destruction of
tobacco and of the inhabitants wandering
helpless and starving through the coun
try
tryThese sad he are the methods
adopted to defeat Spain
Here he continued arc the exalting
details in newspapers which sympathize
with the insurgents Liberty dOE not
light its battles in that way Freedom
often springs from prison bars from
burning lips aye from its own ashes
but not such horror and conflagration and
devils work The heart stirred by the
story of Bunker Hill turns with loathing
from such tales aG these I is not war
I hut incendiarism destruction by the
II torch murder and outrage I is the
wildest
widest
wildestSTROKE OF SAVAGERY
I will never vote to give aid and com
i fort to leaders whose exploits are thus
chronicled
I There is another side Mr Hale was
proceeding to say when Senator Sherman
I interrupted him and asked how long we
were to allow this state of affairs to con
I tinue
tinueThat
That replied Mr Hale is the same
I question which was put to the diplomats
of Europe during the war of the rebellion
I Whenever our arms sustained a reverse
they were asked whether that did not
I disclose a state of war That was the
great burden which rested most heavily
I on those then at the head of our affairs
I That question gave a stoop to the tall
shoulders of Lincoln it weighed most
anxiously upon the able Seward and
i broke down the lionhearted Stanton The
answer to it is to be found in the
I Instructions of Secretary Seward
But interposed Mr Sherman Spain
I England and France had acknowledged
the belligerency of the confederacy be
fore a single battle was fought in lan
I guage identical with that in the first of
these resolutions
I am not speaking of belligerency re
I plied Mr Hale but of independence
SEWARDS ANSWER
I was that the United States was engaged
in one of the most herculean tasks in the
t annals of the world Charles F Adams
at the court of St James and our min
I ister to France were Instructed to say
that the United States would suppress
I the rebellion but in a way to be selected
I by us and that no foreign power would
be allowed to interfere
I Mr Hale said he depored the aggres
I sive spiiit of the past year the desire to
incite troube the buiding up of instru
I ments of war instead of those of peace
the turning aside from the pough and
the taking up of the swordthis was
militarism There WPS but one result
I when militarism took possession of a
great people Thz arts of peace disap
peared and in their place come vast ar
I mament and the dominion of somd great
military chieftain This was the growing
f spirit of the day In ths country
Out cf it all however Mr Hale said
he felt that the good sense of the Ameri
I can people would assert Itself bringing
pence rather than wart
JNlce
t Mr Hale closed at 3 oclock
I Mr Mills urged Mr Sherman not t
I I endeavor t reach a vote today as sev
oral senators desired to be heard Mr
I Sherman yielded to the suggestion and
the Cuban resolutions went over
I Mr Turple DeirO Ind was then re I
cognized for an argument against the
claim of Mr Dupont to a seat in the I
I senate from Delaware I
The senator had not concluded when at
4S5 oclock the senate held a brief executive

April 6 next a year will have passed
since the murder of Blanche Lamont
and yet Theodore Durrant who was
convicted of her murder last Novem
ber is still in the county jail awaiting
the final action of the state supreme
court in the case
Immediately after Durrants convic
tion an appeal was taken but the case
has not been presented to the supreme
court owing to requests for additional
time made by both sides
The last postponement took place a
week ago when the prosecution was
granted twenty days in which to file a
bill of exceptions At the end of this
time it is believed that the case will
be presented to the supreme court but
I a decision is not expected for several
months Durrant was sentenced to be
hanged on February 21 but the slow
I manner in which justice is meted out
to murderers in this state makes It
probable that he will not meet his
death much before the close of this
year Meanwhile the prisoner is spend

the same as the rest of the inmates
He has few visitors and devotes much
I of his time to reading and writing He
has written a history of his life and

FRANKFORT Ky March 9For
the second time death has added to
the complexity of a senatorial contest
that has engrossed the public interest
in thIs state for two months and at
tracted wide attention throughout the
I country The death of Senator eel
Weissinger today removes besides a
distinguished member of the Louisville
bar one of the most active and ener
getic figures in the senatorial light
a man who had within the cast few
weeks defeated Dr Hunter the Repub
lican nominee and successfully baf
fled every attempt ojf the followers of I
Sepator Blackburn to seoura the re
election of that leader The
EXACT POLITICAL EFFECT
of the event of today cannot be deter
mined but tonight an election seems
more remote than ever The Republi
cans now have 68 members of the legis
lature and the Democrats 67 with a
probability of the support of the two
Populist members as long as Black
burn is their nominee Taking into con
sideration the annpunced determina
tion of the Republicans to force a vote
In the house tomorrow upon the Dun
lapKaufman contest case for th pur
pose dZ unseating Kauffman Dem the
key to the situation seems to be the
attitude of LieutenantGovernor Wor
thington who presides at the joint ses
sions will take upon the question of a
quorum I he holds to the decision he
is said to have announced when a va
cancy was caused by the death of Rep
resentative Wilson that seventy shall
constitute a quorum of the joint ses
sion the Republicans even by seating
Dunlap can count upon only 69 votes
and the Democrats with the two Pop
ulists will have the same number so
that either party
may
BREAK A QUORUM AT WILL
and prevent an election I he takes
the position that since the death of
Senator Weissinger 69 members con
stitute a quorum the election of St
John Boyle of Louisville can be ac
complished by the Republicans if they
seat Dunlap and give the caucus nomi
nee the whole party strength This
session will expire before a successor to
Mr Weissinger can be elected
I is almost certain that tomorrow a
vote will be taken in the Dunlap
Kauffman case and that Kauffman I
the Democratic member will be un
seated Whether the Democratic
Democratc sen
ators retaliate or not the Republicans
assert the election of Mr Boyle is a
certainty
The Democrats say they will go into
the joint session until an attempt to
unseat Kauffman is made Beyond
that the politics of the situation can
not be foretold At todays joint ses
sion there was no attempt made to
elect
THE DEATH OF lR WEISSINGER
having been announced before 12
oclock it was agreed between the
leaders that the proceedings be con
fined to a formal ballot to fill the re I
quirements of the law but one vote I
being cast for the nominee of each
party after which no quorum was an
nounced and the session adjourned
Afterward both houses reconvened
and appointed committees to take ap
propriate action upon the death of Mr
Weissinger The adoption of the so
lutions drawn up by these committees
journment was followed in both branches by ad

Senator Weissingers friends who

CHICAGO March 9The sweat shop
and the system that supports it were
under consideration in Central Music
hal last evening Nine speakers rep
resenting the pulpit the bar the state
government and the trade that is most
closely Identified with the sweat shop
explained Its history its operation the
evils of its existence and its tenacity
of life andsuggested methods of re
form A lane audience was present
A glance showed that it was com
posed of the people in all stations of
life > From men and women with toil
hardened hands to practical working
philanthropists professional men and
women thinkers and lastly men and
women from whose hearts all sympa
thy is not shut out by garments of
silk and sealskin
In the speeches made was criticism

in small degree excuse of circum

WEARING AWAY BODY AND SOUL
for a pittance and appeal to the heart
and brain of the whole people for a
public sentiment powerful enough to

fetters f the black slave in the south

I Finally a resolution was adopted
endorsing a bill intended to give the
national government power to wipe
out an evil in the presence of which
state governments have been impo
tent
Jane Adams who has found a life
work in the noisy district where the
sweat shops most flourish presided In
I a brief address she explained the ob

I John Fr ney who has given nearly
twenty years of his life to factory in
snection in New York and who after
ten years of toil has finally framed
and had introduced in congress a meas

national legislation gave a history of
the system and the inefficiency of even
stringent laws against It
I Mrs Mitchell spoke as a sweat shop
worker
Dr Thomas Hall Dr Joseph Stolz
11 M Mangasarian and Rabbi Levl
offered appeals based on practical and
ethical grounds
Mrs Florence Kelley told how and
why ed the state law in Illinois had fail
Secure in the consciousness of his
own position as a lawyer and judge
IN STIRRING WORDS
not devoid of sarcasm Judge M E
Tuley of Chicago advised workingmen
and women that legislatures and courts
would give them little Tel l until they
should manifest their power by organ
ization
Judge Toileys speech in part is as
follows
i an men ana women were what
they ought to be if they could treat I
human there I
each other a beings
would be no need of legislation to get I
rid of the sweat shop I recommend to II
our preachers that they make mission
aries of themselves go to the manu
facturers and sweat bosses and con i
vert them to a Christian life I admit
they would have a hard job The only
other way is to appeal to the law That
has been tried
But when I remember the fate of
every law ever passed in this state to
ameliorate the condition of the com
mon people I hang my head in shame
I passed by tIe legislature it has gone
to the supreme court and has been de
clared unconstitutional I
We now talk of appeal to federal
law and federal courts I have not
made a critical review df this bill but
I know our federal courts
are more
progressive than our state courts The I
court that could not find warrant In
the constitution for
AN INCOME TAX

oleomargarine A court tbat could find
warrant in the constitution to suppress I
a Debs ought to be able t find a war
rant for a bill to suppress sweat shops I
The oleomargarine bill became a law
because it benefited the farmers and
farmers have votes I say to you that
the power to suppress the sweat shops
lies In organization In your unions
When you have your unions organized
and your votes under your control
then you will get legislation
The resolution which
resoluton was adopted by
the meeting is a follows
Resolved That this mass meeting
of citizens assembled in Central Music
hall Chicago declares its approval
