It is rumored that Senator J. K.

ship of the national democratic com
mittee.
Former President Cleveland con
tributes to the Saturday Evening Post
of Philadelphia an article on the plight
of democracy and the remedy. Mr.
Cleveland begins by reviewing the his
tory of the party and he discusses its
defeats since IHG4 in detail. In taking
up the question of the present conditions
of democracy he says that the success of
that party in 1802 was so decisive and
overwhelming that a long continuance
of its supremacy was anticipated. Then
came the "fallacy of free silver and
populism." Be preaches a return of
democracy to its old faith.
The 15-year-old son of Edward!
Cudahy, the millionaire pork packer of I
Omaha, was kidnaped from a street neat
his home. Soon after his disappearance
a letter was thrown in the family yard,
notifying the father that the boy was
held for $25,000 ransom; that unless
the father took the money, all in gold
and left his home at a certain hour after j
dark, with a red lantern on his buggy,
drove to a certain point about five miles
out of town and left the money near a
white lantern which he would find and
then returned, the boy's eyes would be
burued out with acids and tie sent home,
when the kidnapers would steal another
millionaire's son and hold him for $100,
--000. Mr. Cudahy did as directed, and
five hours later his boy came home with
the story of his kidnaping. The father
offers |25,000 for the men, of whom it
is thought there were three. Their head
quarters and lantern, with some other
clews, have been found.

of a formal protest to the French gov

Senate Amended Treaty With
That Idea in View.
Senator Lodge Understood the Keel
in X of the People ami Said
We Kirn Control
Washington, Dec. 21.—Senator Lodge,
who hatt charge of the Hay-Paonct tote
treaty, in the senate todaj made the fol
lowing statement:
"Flu' senate amendments were not dic
tated by hostility towards Great Britain
and still less were they in a degree a re
flection on the secretary of etate. The
amendments were tnadeaolelj because in
the opinion ol the senate they were neces
saryforthe United States in the avoid
ance of any question as to the owner
ship oi the canal and consequently for
the sake of the peaceful and harmonious
dealings with the rest of the world on
that subject in the future.
'•The first amendment inn simple decla
ration that the Clayton-Bulwer treaty
ceases to exist and in supereeded by the
Hay-Pauneefote treaty. The object of
the hitter was to remove the former an
an obstacle to the construction of the
isthmian canal. Some good judges
thought the Ray-Pauncefote treaty did
this completely as it Btood. Others be
lieved that certain portions of the Clay
ton-Boiler treaty still remained in force.
To allow this doubt to continue would
have been a grave mistake. The Ameri
can people desired to be rid of the (lav
ton Bulwer treaty finally and beyond
question.
Under article IV, of the Hay-Poneefote
treaty an it stood we were clearly bound,
if engaged in war, to permit a hoHtile
fleet if it succeeded in getting inside the
three-mile zone, to pass unmolested
through the canal. This may or may
not be a practical question and it in of
no consequence whether it is or not. It
in a solemn promise to permit a hostile
fleet to use the canal. That promise we
either intended to keep as we made it or
did not intend to keep, knowing that
under the stress of war we should break
it. If we meant to keep it then it was a
promise no nation ought to make. If
we knew that we should not keep it in
time of war, then it was only honest and '
fair to relieve ourselves of the obligation
in the treaty itself. This wan the pur ,
pose of the second or Davis amendment,
which entirely disposes of any such
promise, and which follows exactly in
principle and almost exactly in words.
article X, of the Suez convention, which ',
reserved similar rights to Turkey, whose
interest in the Suez omul is trivial com
pared to ours in that proposed in Nica- •
ratrua.
"The third amendment strikes out
article 111, by which we engaged to in
vite other nations to adhere to the '
Had tJiere been no (laytotiHulvver treatY
we should have negotiated with no one
except Costa Rica and Nicaragua as to
the building of the canal. With England,
owing to the Clayton-Bulger treaty, we
were obliged to treat, but as we expect
Europe to keep out of this hemisphere,
it seemed to the senate an unwise, bow
ever excellent and liberal intention, to
invite European nations to share in
American treaty and thin give them a ,
right to meddle in American affairs at ,
any poiut.
" We desire to dispose of the Clayton
Bulwer treaty in the most friendly way
possible. We are most averse to any
other disposition of it. England does
not intend to go to war to prevent our
building the canal, and if it is physically
possible to build it we mean in any event
to do so. Coder th>*se circumstances we
are very clear that it is as much for Eng- i
land's interest as for ours to accept the
new propositions in the friendly spirit in
which they are offered and thus end a
controversy over a worn out treat]
which is only n stumbling block to both
nations. It is not to be doubted that
the English ministers, whose ability, ex
perience and reputation are known to
all the world, will duly weinh all these
considerations and rightly comprehend
the purpose of the senate amendments
and the spirit in which they are pre
sented."
NEED A HUNDRED THOUSAND.
Secretary Hoot Says the Army Hill
Must Be Passed
Washington, Dec. 23.—At the last
meeting of the senate committee on mili
tary affairs, the proceedings of which
have just been made public, Secretary
Root made a strong presentation of the
necessity for immediate legislation for
the relief of the army. He stated broad
ly that if congress did not at once in
dorse the army bill in substantial ac
cordance v.ith the recommendations of
the war department the United States
would be obliged to abandon a large
portion of the Philippine islands where
civil government is established. If the
present garrisons are withdrawn from
certain portions of the inlands the mu
nicipal officers, mostly Filipinos, will be
; l^ft defenseless, with every prospect of
| being deprived of tbei? lives and proper
i ty, and at the same time the United
• States will be disgraced, the secretary
i argued that it was necessary to pase the
i department bill as a whole in order to j
! properly adjust the military organiza- |
j tion to the new conditions created by
; the increase of numbers
"We do sot any of us,"" he eaid, "ex
j ppct that for «r;y considerable period an
army of 100,000 men will be main
| tamed, and for an army of 60,000 men
. the provisions mad*- (by the committee)
are sufficient."
