- _. PINAL ADJOURNMENT OF THE SEN
ATE EXTRA SESSION IS IN
_FRYE RE-ELECTED CHAIRMAN
MAINE SENATOR HAS THE CONFI
DENCE OF HIS COLLEAGUES
ON BOTH SIDES
MORGAN CLOSES HIS SPEECH
Leader la Advocacy of the Nicara
gua Canal Talks Forcibly on the
Abrogation of the Clay
. WASHINGTON, March 7.—A number |
of senators who have talked with the I
president, express the opinion that the |
special session of the senate can be ,
brought to a final conclusion by next
Saturday, and some think that adjourn
ment may be reached tomorrow.
'-Senator"William P. Frye. of Maine, to
day, was re-elected unanimously presi
dent pro tempore of the senate to serve
during the pleasure of the senate. This
is the second time Senator Frye has been
honored by his colleagues. Five years
ago, on Feb. 7, 1896, the Republicans then ;
being in a minority, he was elected unan- '■
imously. His services as president pro ,
tempore, especially since the death of ,
the- late Vice President Hobart, have" j
won for him the cordial appreciation of
his fellow senators for his able and im
partial administration of the post.
At today's session Mr. Morgan, of
Alabama, concluded his speech in support
of his resolution declaring the abrogation
of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty between
the United States and Great Britain.
His peroration was really pathetic. He
had devoted the best yea^s of his official
life, he said, to advance the construction
of the Nicaragua canal, but now he did
not expect to live to see the work upon
the great waterway begun.
When the' senate convened today* a
huge bunch of beautiful roses adorned
the desk of Mr. Gamble, the successor
of Mr. Pettigrew, of South Dakota.
As upon preceding days of the present
session, the galleries were crowded with
spectators, but it was evident that Vice
President Roosevelt's warning that -he
would direct the galleries to be cleared
in the event of another demonstration of
applause, had had its effect, and not a j
.•ripple disturbed the quiet when the '■
vice president entered the chamber. Dur- j
ing the opening proceedings a large or- j
namental basket filled with bride and ;
jaqueminot roses was brought in and I
placed" upon the desk of Mr. Blackburn !
The vice president announced the ap- j
pointment of Messrs. Cullom (111.) and '
Cockerell (Mo.) as members of the board j
of regents of the Smithsonian institution.
MORGANS SPEECH CONCLUDED.
' At the conclusion of routine business,
Mr. Morgan resumed his speech. He
declared it was perfectly clear that
the protocol;, entered into last fall by
this government were a distinct violation
of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. It was
equally evident that the United States
must abandon its plighted ■ faith with I
Nicaragua and Costa Rica, in order that j
the Clayton-Bulwer treaty might be !
. fastened permanently upon this govern
ment and hang like a pall over it, cr
take such a stand as will sustain the
The protocols entered into expressed
the defiance by.the president of the Clay
ton-Bulwer treaty and his disregard of
its provisions. They undertook to place
the government on the high ground that
the Clayton-Bulwer treaty Is abrogated
by this government.
"It is our duty," insisted Mr. Morgan.
"to declare that that treaty is not in the
way of legislating for the Nicaragua ca
nal. If we hesitate today it will be the
same a year hence and the provisions of
that treaty will be fastened upon us."
Mr. Morgan urged that his resolution
be adopted in order that the president
might understand the . position of the
senate so thoroughly that he would feel
justified in proceeding along Jtfes looking"
to the construction of the Nicaragua
canal while congress was in its long
At the conclusion of Mr. Morgan's ad
dress the senate, without taking any ac
tion upon the resolution, went into ex
ecutive session, and at 1:50 p. m. ad
NOMINATED AND CONFIRMED.
The president today sent the following
nominations to the senate:
Charles S. Wilson, of Maine, secretary
of the legation to Greece, Roumania and
Volunteer army. Sergt. Maj. Walter

t The senate also confirmed the military
nominations sent to it by the presidency
today, as well as the naval promotions
sent in yesterday.
* BUCKING COL. SANGER.
Senators Piatt and Depew, of New
York, are both opposing *the proposition
to nominate Col. Sanger for the office
of assistant secretary of war. Senator
Piatt saw the secretary of war. on the
Subject today and entered a formal" pro
test on the ground that Col. Sanger is
not a consistent Republican. Senator
Depew also has indicated his opposition.
Neither of them was consulted before the
nomination was decided upon. The selec
tion seems to have been made by th.c
secretary, but the senators claim that if
that official is <o assert that prerogative '
he should find a man who will be ac
ceptable to them. Senator Piatt today
expressed the opinion that the protest
which has been made would have the
effect of preventing the president from
Bending in the nomination.
The first provisional squadron of caval
ry, new in the course of organization at
the Presidio, San Francisco, has l»een as

- The president had-another busy day.
Many senators and representatives;. called
to pay their respects before leaving for
their homes, and largo numbers of stran

LONDON, March 7.—ln anticipation of
a lively debate and exciting scenes aris
ing from .the suspension of Irish Nation
alists and Mr. Balfour's punishment
proposals, there was a great attendance
in the house of commons today. The
visitors' galleries were filled, many peers
and ladies being among thos? present.
Though no extra policemen were visible,
a large force of Dolice was in readiness
within easy reach.
The Irish members of parliament are
greatly pleased with the tabic dispatches
received by John Redmond, their chair
man, from Irishmen in Boston and Chi
The speaker, Mr. Gully, announced that
he had received a letter from Mr. Jordan
to the effect that he had not defied the
authority of the chair, and on the motion
ot Mr. Dillon Mr. Jordan's name was re
moved from the list of suspended Mem
Mr. Balfour tMi moved his amend
ment to the rule governing the suspension
of recalcitrant members.
In supporting the motion Mr. . Balfour
said it was necessary to provide adequate
summary- punishment for such physical
resistance to the speaker's orders as oc
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman- allud
ec to the grossly disorderly conduct of
certain members and said he had not a
word of excuse to say in their justifica
tion or palliation, but he suggested a
modification of Mr. Balfour s amend
ment. ••;• -.-
John Redmond said what had occurred
was a natural ebullition of feeling against
an unjust closure. He denied premedita
tion and said the moral responsibility for
what had occurred was wholly on Mr.
Balfour, whose proposal now was ex
travagant and unnecessary.

• Mr. Bryan was not disposed to discuss
general political matters, but departed
from' this rule to some extent when ask
ed regarding^the probable outcome of the
senatorial fight in Nebraska.,

"that there are not enough senatorial, po
sitions to go around among the railroads.
It is possible that they may be able to
reach some compromise through a basis
of common representation, but the situa

ENRAGED TEXAS FOSSE IN PUR
SUIT OF NEGRO FIEND.
CROSICINA. Tex.. March Mrs. Cor
way Younger, a farmer's wife, was bru

n ght by a negro. A posse of 200 me a.
headed by Younger, are, by the- aid of

murderer, who, . doubtless,. will' meet a
terrible death at the hands- of the pur

. Younger returned from the fields last
evening to find his wife missing. His
three-year-old child was playing about
the house and, after searching the house,
Younger asked the child where his moth

"A big negro knocked mama down and
dragged her away," lisped the little one.
Younger sounded the alarm, and after
a short search Mrs. Younger' body was
found in a brush patch not far from tha
house. There were signs of a terrible
struggle between the woman and her as
sailant. A gash extending from ear to
ear had ended her life. -
Aroused to an extraordinary pitch of
fury over the crime, men gathered from
the surrounding country, bloodhounds
were procured and the party mounted for
the chase of the murderer. • So far. how

MARCONI IN THE SHADE
THE AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT
CLAIMS BETTER SYSTEM.
WASHINGTON, March 7.—Since last
autumn the navy department has sus
pended the experiments in the employ
ment of wireless telegraphy as a means
of communication between naval vessels
and between vessels and the shore. Up
to this time none of the warships has
"been equipped with a permanent plant.
While it may be true that Marconi is
coming to the United States and that he
may while here communicate to the navy
department some proposition looking to
the installation of his own system of
telegraphy on our naval vessels, the navy
department has not yet engaged him to
do so. The latest proposition has been
broached by the department of agricul
ture. Secretary Wilson, hearing that the
navy was casting about for a service
able system of telegraphy, has written
Admiral Bradford to notify him that
the agricultural department has been ex
perimenting for some time with wireless
telegraphy and has attained remarkable
results. His . experts assert -with the
greatest' positiveness that. they' have
evolved" a system radically -different
from Marconi's and of far greater effi
ciency. For obvious reasons the details
of the process are kept secret, but it
is probable that within a short time a
practical exhibition will be made on
board of a naval vessel. The outcome
will be watched with the greatest Inter
est by ' all naval men, particularly .in
view of the announcement that not only
Great Britain but Germany and other
European maritime powers have ordered
the installation of wireless plants in

CONSERVATIVE FACTION AVON A
DECISIVE VICTORY IN CONSTI
RADICAL , MOTION REJECTED
PLATT AMENDMENT REFERRED TO
SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON
CONVENTION WON'T ACCEPT IT
Gr Such Is the Prevailing Opinion,
but Danger of a Popular In
surrection Is Proba
HAVANA, March 7.—The Cuban con
stitutional convention met in secret ses
sion this afternoon' for a-formal "discus
sion of the Piatt amendment. The con
servative element scored a victory. It
was decided to continue the sessions of
the convention and to refer the amend
ment to the special committee on rela
tions with instructions to bring in a
report. Twenty-nine delegates were pres
ent, Senor Llorente and Gen. Rivera be
ing the only: absentees. Gen. Sanguilly
favored dissolving the convention and re
turning the amendment without dis
cussion. The other delegates were unan
imously in favor of continuing the ses
sions and of/ sending some answer' to
the executive department in Washington.
The argument turned on the question
whether the convention had power to
draw up a schedule of relations which
would bind the future republic. Last
week a majority of the delegates opposed
this view. Today Senor Nunez, represent
ing the Conservatives, urged that the del
egates were empowered- in the call for
the convention to establish permanent
relations with the United States,- and
ought not to try to shirk this duty.
Gen. Sanguilly contended that the in
tention of the original call was annul
led by Gen. Wood's instructions at the
opening^of the convention, \ when dele
gates were asked to give only an opin
ion. -.. " --':-_. "
SANGUILLY TURNED DOWN.
The radical element did not flock to
Gen. Sanguilly, as had been expected,
and the convention's action in referring
the question to the special committee on
relations indicates a willingness to recede
from the former attitude. It is under
stood that many of the delegates stiil
hope the amendment will.. be changed,
but there is no bitter feeling now ap
parent. If is doubtful whether the con
vention will ever agree to accept the
amendment, but the Conservatives main
tain that the willingness of the radicals
to discuss, and, if necessary, to send
a commission to Washington, gives a
more hopeful aspect to conditions which
were growing strained. -•'.'-"_">.
It is generally believed that the crisis,
if any existed, has passed, and by the
time the committee reports the present
excitement will have died out. Much
depends upon the-attitude of the radical
delegates. If an impassioned appeal to
the people is issued, as is rumored may
be the case, this will cause .demonstra
tions of protest against the United
States. But nothing in-the nature of ah
uprising is any longer feared./
CASE OF EDITOR' RICE.

WASHINGTON, March 7.-The latest

In stating the immediate cause for
Rice's deportation, the order says:

he would reiterate these charges when

City of Helena Is Thronged With

CHICAGO, March 7.—A special to the
Record from Helena says:
Tonight the Montana legislature is striv
ing to break the deadlock that has exist

senator began in January. This Is the last
day of the session. At midnight the hands
of the clock in the house will be pushed
back and the sun will be . peeping over

be a deadlock, it ls predicted, though
there is hope for Senator Thomas H.
Carter. He is the only Republican in
Montana who stood the least show of se
curing fusion votes. The Democrats are
divided.. A score stay with Magifints, F.
Augustus Heinze's mine manager.
Other Democrats—the straights—

Seven independent Democrats, with
others, have formed the field. Long ago
the Republican minority knew that Lee
Mantle stood no show, and Senator Car

augmented his senatorial chances might

sults. Carter has thirty-two. . Trailers
have dropped out. The third ballot threw
a crowd ;to ; Frank and Maginnis, each
having 29. This shows that the fusionists
and Democrats are uneasy and are
amenable -to change. They could not
agree in caucus last night, however, after
hours wrangling over a candidate, and
the Republicans hope at the proper mo
ment to create a stampede .to Carter.

CITY OF ST. PAUL,
i m i ii
NO PERMANENT OCCUPATION OF
MANCHURIA BY FORCES
OF THE CZAR sA,
TO BE RETURNED TO CHINA
PRESENT OCCUPATION MERELY A
MODUS VIVENDI TO PRE
SAME STATUS AS AT PEXIN
At Such Time as Effective Chinese
Government Is Re-established
the Russian Troops Will '
d££2?° N ' MarCh -The government
publishes a dispatch from the British
ambassador at St. Petersburg sir
Charles Stewart Scott, relating to th«
assurances given Feb. 6 by the Russian
minister of foreign affairs. Count Si.
dorf, concerning the Manchurian affair
It appears that the Russian minister con
sented , Feb. 27 to Its publication as ac
curately representing Russia's attitude In
the proceedings in Manchuria. Sir cnarte,
Scott says in part:
"Count , Lansdorf gave me the true
version of what had taken place already
He said he had read allegations in the
press that Russia had concluded or was
engaged in- concluding with China a con
vention or permanent arrangement which
would give Russia new rights and a v:r
tual protectorate over Southern Man
churia. This he declared to be qui_._
untrue, asserting that the only ground
for the rumor must have been" the fact
that the Russian military authorities
who had been engaged in the temporary
operation and pacification of the province
had been directed when reinstating the
Chinese authorities to arrange with the
local civil.authorities a modus Vivendi
for the duration of simultaneous presence
of Russians and Chinese in Southern
Manchuria, with the object of preventing
any serious disturbances m the vicinity
of the Russian frontier and of protect
ing the railway from the Russian fron
tier to Port Arthur.
IS NOT PERMANENT.
Some details of the proposed modus
Vivendi were sent for consideration to St
Petersburg, but no convention or ar
rangement with the central government
of China or of a permanent character had
been concluded with regard to Man
churia, nor had the emperor any inten
tion of departing in any way from the
assurances he had publicly gif»:n that
Manchuria would be entirely restored to
its former condition in the Chinese em
pire as soon as circumstances admitted.
"Russia was in the same position with
regard to fixing, the final date for evacu
ating Manchuria as the allies round
themselves in with regard to Pekia
and the Province of Chi LI. When it come
to final and complete evacuation of Man
churia, Russia would be obliged to ox
tain from the central -government of
China an effectual guarantee against a
recurrence, of the recent attack upon
frontier and. destruction of her rail way,
but she. had no intention of seeking this
guarantee in any -acquisition of territory
or an. actual, or virtual protectorate or
Manchuria, her object being simply to
guarantee the faithful observance ln the
future by China of the terms of the
agreement which she has been unable to
fulfill during the recent disturbances."
The minister " concludes by repeating
Count LansdorfTs assurances that there
had been no alteration ta the status of
Manchuria which would be restored whgpi
the present temporary military measures
had ceased, and the Chinese at Niu
Chwang and elsewhere would be rein
stated in the former position.
