Two Hours Session Winds Up
in Apologies All Around
Harsh Words by South Car
otinan Are Regretted,
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, January 21. A
spectacular speech by Senator Tillman
was tho chief feature of an exciting
day in the senate. Tho South Carolina
senator's effort was as a reply to the
recent criticism of himself by Senator
Spooner of Wisconsin. Ho began with
a satirical picture of tho senate us a
minstrel show and later said it was his
first and last attompt to bo "funny,"
an attempt, which at its conclusion
brought a stinging denunciation from
Senator Carmack of Tennessee in re
sentment of allusions to him.
This wan preceded by a serious reply
from Mr. Spooner on the attitude taken
by Sonator Tillman on the race ques
tion, all resulting in a session of near
ly two hours behind closed doors. The
secret session was followed by a brief
open ono in which Tillman made a pro
fane apology to Carmack and to all
the senators whom ho had brought into
his "first esuay in tho lino of humor,"
and finally to tho entire senate.
"I very much regret that I over
undertook to bo funny and Will never
do so again," he said. Tho apology
was nt oaeo accepted by Carmack, who
regretted that hehad questioned the
motives of his friend and he too with
drew tlw words ho had uttered in pro
tost. Tho Brownsville affair was tho sub
rject of controversy and. the day began
with the announcement of a comprom
ise resolution which brought tho .Repub
lican and Democratic senators together
on a basis of ordering an investigation
of the fact without bringing info the
question the authority of tho president
dismiss the troops.
Tlio resolution was submitted to and
approved by the president at a confer
ence yesterday.
After the speeches ForJlker attempted
to got a vote on his resolution. An
objection was made and the matter will
be taken up tomorrow.
Tillman's Funnyness
As a prelude Tillman paid his com
pliments to the senators who hud spok
en on the Brownsville affair. He said
that tho press had denominated him
the "burnt cork artist of the senato,"
and remarked that if he was entitled to
the appellation or that of "Pitchfork
Ben," at one end of tho minstrel line,
certainly "Fire Alarm" Joo Foraker
ought not be ignored at the other.
Culborson was designated as per
forming a solo on "bones," in prniso
of the president. Daniol wns called
"tlio brilliant courtly senator from Vir
ginia whose specialty is oratory and
who works rhetoric for a time." -
"Smiling Tom" Patterson
"Next," said Tillman, "we have the
dying swan, Smiling Tom of Colorado,
tho stato recently bought at auction by
one Guggenheim. His swan song is a
dirgo for tho dying Democracy of the
north, stabbed in its vitals by Ben's

"Next wo have tho redoubtable Ten
nossecan, who was once a very hot-spur
in tho lists, whose spoarlias run through
and clear upon the visor of tlio Usurper
at tlio WhitoHouso and who has made
tho sparks fly in many an onset, but
his spearhead is broken off; but beforo
retiring, ho soizcs a garland of flowers
and, placing it on his headless weapon,
ho lays it at the feet of the victorious
Roosevelt as a peace offering and joins
tho minstrels to sing his last song. His
specialty is a soug, ' Renominate Our
Tdea or Give Us Hack Our Platform.'
Bacon, Stono and Spooner
"As tho middleman we have tho pom
padour artist from Georgia, whoso spo
eialty is to never answor any questions
and who depends on his voice to carry
eonviction to his audience.
"Then comes tho star of tho troupe,

top of a ten-rail fenco and never touch
tho ground, but his greatest feat is

Badger state, an acrobat juggler of in
ternational reputation. Ho is supple,
sly, foxy and, having once beon a law
yor, is noted for his ability to got on
either side of any question and maintain
an argument with great force,"
Negro Akin to Monkey
At this point Tillman turned his at
tention to Spooner's recent attack. Ho
-declared that in Spooner 's speech "his
manner was as insulting as it is possible
for a senator to assume and the attack
unparalleled, intentional and in cold
blood. It was an action worthy of
Uriah Hcop."
Tie said "Wo have not shot any
negroes in South Carolina on account
of politics since '70 and have not found
it necessary."
Ho said ho would not call tho negro
a baboon. "I bolieve thoy aro men, yet
thoy ar so akin to monkeys that scien
tists iiro lookihi7ror tho missing link
yet. h,
Judge Lynch Justified
"I have justified lynch law for ono
crimo and ono only; I-havo consistently
maintained that attitude, for tho last
fourteen years. As governor of South
Carolina, 1 proclaimed that I wonld lead
a mob to lynch any man, black or white,
who had ravished any woman, black or
white. This is my attitude, calmly, do
liboratoly taken, and justified by my
conscience in tho sight of God."
Relating to tho president's orders in
the Brownsville nffair, Tillman snid:
"Mr. Roosornlt has already rescinded
ono part of his order and I warn my
fellow sonators thnt they need not be
surprised to find him a little later on
tnodifying'or changing liis attitude."
Dodged Main Question
Replying to Senator Spoougr's speech
ho said: "I cull attention to the fact
that each of the three champions who
have been tho most vociferous in ap
plauding the president's course and de
fending his conduct, dodgod the ques
tion of why did not tho president em
ploy detectives. My bluff and earnest
friend from Georcia, tho brilliant friend
ffom Tennessee and tho sly nnd slip
pery senator from Wisconsin all dodged
it. If there has been a single nnd sens
ible effort mado to detect fho murtferers
in this case I fail to find record of it.
Reliance uion inquiry set on foot by
Major Blockom and Genernl Garling
tou as the sole means of detection are
to my mind nothing less than idiotic.
The whole proceeduro lifts the appoar-
anco of a well bud plan to shield and
protect tho real criminals and hurry
tho expulsion of innocent and guilty
iiuiu alike from the army so as to put
it out of tho power of anybody to over
prove who tho guilty men were and
mote out tho adequate punishment to
LyuclilKgs not "Bees"
"The senator from Wisconsin speaks
of ' lynching becs. As far ns lynching
for rapo is concerned the word is a
misnomer. When stern, sad-faced men
put to (death a creature in human form
who deflowered a white woman there is
nothing of the 'boo' about it. Theie is
more of the feeling of participating as
niouruers at a funeral. Thoy have
avenged tho greatest wrong, tho black
est crimo in all, tho category of crimes,
not so much as an act of retribution,
but as a warning to any man who shall
repeat the offense They aro looking
to the protection of their lpved oues.
Spooner Rawhldcd
"The senator from Wisconsin prates
about the law. Ho erects law into n
deity which must bo worshipped regnrd
less of justice. He has studied law
books until his mind has become satur
ated with a bigotry which ignores the
fundamental principles in this govern
ment 'law is nothing moro than the
will of tho people.'
"Tiie senator from Wisconsin is im
capable of understanding conditions
down south or has lost those natural
impulses which have for centuries been
characteristic of the race. That trinity
l words, noblest and holiest in our
language, 'womanhood wifehood, moth
erhood,' have a Saxon origin and a
man who discusses cold-bloodedly a mat
ter so vital as the purity and chastity
of womanhood is a disgrace to his own
mother and unworthy tlio love of a good
Getting Down to Facts
"It is idle to reason or preach about
it. Our brains reel under the stagger
ing blow and hot blood surges to tho
heart. Civilization peels off. We re
vert to the origiual savage whose im
pulses under any and all such circum
stances liavo always been to kill! kill!
"I don't know what the senator from
Wisconsin would do under these cir
cumstances, neither do I care. I have
three daughters a nil, so help me God, 1
would ratlier find one of them killed
by a tiger or bear and gather up her
bones and bury them, conscious that
sho had died in the purity of maiden
hood, than to liavo her crawl to me a'nd
tell the horrid story of how sho had
lost tho jew.el of womanhood, or, ratlier,
had been robbed of it by a black fiond.
"Tho wild beast would only obey
tho instinct of nnturo and wo would
hunt him down and kill him just as

question I apologizo for nothing. I

all such creatures."
Back to Brownsvlllo
Regarding his position on tho Browns

patches exchnuged today between the

ters which passcu between Admiral

LONDON, January'' 21. Roplying to
a tolegram from tho British charge d'l
affaires at Washington reporting thnt
tho stato department had inquired
whether Great Britain desired or was
willing to accept further assistance
fortho' Kingston sufferers, tho foreign
ofllco today replied as follows: "The
offer of tho American government is
gratefully appreciated by his majesty's
government. Tho Govornor of Jamaica
has not yet reported his requirements,
but it appears likely that thero will bo
no justification for-further calls on the
generosity .of the United States. In
the meantime, his majesty's government
has been requested by Sir Alexander
Swettenham to convoy to the govern

thanks for the prompt and .powerful as
sistance which tho United States navy
under Rear Admiral Davis rendered to
tho inhabitants of Kingston in their

which had been landed.
Admiral Davis was greatly shocked
and pained, and paid a formal visit to
Governor Swettenham today, informing
him that the United States battleships
Missouri and Indiana and tho gunboat
Yankton would sail this afternoon. To
the Associated' Press Admiral Davis said
that the immediate compliance with
Governor Swettenham 's request was the
only course consistent with the dignity
of the United States.
The friction between tho governor
and Admiral Davis began with tho ar
rival of tho warships, when the gov
ernor objected to tho firing of a salute
in his honor on the ground taht the
citizens might mistake the firing for a
new earthquake. Ho also declared that
thoro was no necessity for American aid
that his government was fully able
to preserve order, attend to tho wound

Rear Admiral Davis, however, landod
parties of the bluejackets, which patrol

of iron were found hundreds of feet
from the track. Tho Jank of tho pas
senger engine was hurled nearly one
