THE MILWAUKEE IS INVESTING
Purchases Bottom Lands Near the

KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 2.—Bottom
lands in the vicinity of the stock yards,
valued at 200.000, were sold here today,
and it is believed were purchased in the
interests of the Cnicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul railway, upon -flihich to build
freight houses and yards.
The Milwaukee railroad began early in
1900 to perfect plans for entering "into
competition for Kansas City-Chicago
passenger and freight traffic, when sur
veys were made for a cut-off between
Ottumwa and Davenport, lowa, to short
en its line between those cities, and it is
asserted that today's purchase is an
other step in the move for this result.

ANNAPOLJS. Md., May 2.—The special
train conveying President Roosevelt and
party to Annapolis to attend the graduat
ing exercises at the naval academy ar
rived here at 9:45 o'clock this morning.
A battalion of marines under command
of Capt. Lucas was drawn up at the sta
tion. The party proceeded in carriages
to the academy grounds, the president
going directly to the superintendent's
house, where there was a short wait to
permit the assembling of the cadet bat
talion at the chapel.
The president walked across the campui
to where the cadets were lined up and
passing down the line looked each cadet
squarely in the face. He was then pre
sented to the officers of the academy by
Commander Wainwright. While this was
gcing on, the shore batteries fired the
president's salute of twenty-one guns. At
the sound of a bugle blast the cadets
stacked guns and marched by fours to
the chape}, where benediction was pro
nounced by the chaplain.
The graduating class discarded their
guns and accoutrements and advanced
close to the platform. President Roose
velt then addressed them, his remarks
being frequently interrupted by applause.
Among other things he said:

Receives Diploma, on Sick Bed.
At the conclusion of the address and
distribution of diplomas, the president re
quested that he be taken to the hospital
where Cadet Emory S. Land, of Wyom
ing, a member of the graduating class,
was lying ill. Sitting up in bed the sick
boy received his diploma from the presi
dent, who made a few appropriate re
marks, in which he expressed the hope
that he would soon be out. The president
was then given an opportunity of witness
ing the customary prank of the plebs
throwing the graduating class out of
quarters, which afforded a great deal of
amusement. Among the cadets awarded
prizes was Earl P. Finney, of Winnebago,

Gen. Mac Arthur, Quizzed by Senator
Culberson, Says Most of Them
Have Been Granted.
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 2.—Gen.
Mac Arthur was interrogated today by
Senator Culbtorson, of lexas, at the
hearing before the Philippine committee.
The general had referred to the advan
tar^ of implanting Republican institu
tions in the island.
Mr. Culberson took up each of the
principles of Republican institutions, free
speech, free press, self-government, trial
by jury, etc., and asked how far these
had been implanted in the Philippines.
As to free spesch Gen. Mac Arthur said
he had told the Filipinos that if they
would give him their guns they could
have a mass meeting on every corner. He
said soldiers were quartered in private
houses as an incident to war.
Senator Culberson sought to develop
that the fundamental rights had not been
implanted in the islands.
Gen. MaeArthur maintained, however,
that all of the fundamental rights ex
cept trial by jury, and the right to bear
arms, were in operation as far as cir
cumstances would permit.
The committee in executive session
agreed, at the request of Mr. Rawlins,
to summon Corporal William Glbbs, now
at Spnnglield, Mass., he having been an
oye witness of the, massacre of Ballan
giga, the senator said: also D. I. Parker,
of New Hampshire, who is said to have
been a witness to much "water curing."
Why Information Is Delayed.
WASHINGTON. D. C, May 2.-Secre
tary Koot is writing to Senator Culberson
an explanation of the reason why the
war department thus far has made no re
sponse to the senate resolution adopted
Apri! 17 calling for exact and detailed
statements of the cost of the war in the
Philippines. This is in answer to criti
cism.; made by certain senators that the
department was purposely suppressing in
formation on this sabject. The secretary
will show that from the moment the reso
lution was passed, every one of the sup
ply bureaus of the war department has
beer, collecting material for the answer.
The difficulties in the way of making a
satisfactory response were enormous,
and iii many instances it was found act
ually impossible to answer specific ques
tions by approximate, statements.

LOSE AT MADISON
Gopher State Men Meet Their First
Defeat of the Year—Railroad*
Special to The Globe.
MADISON, Wis., May 2.—Wisconsin
won the joint debate with Minnesota to
night, the judges by a vote of 2 to 1
deeidjpg in her favor after being out till
nearly midnight. The question was:
"Resolved, That railway rates in the
United States should be nxed by govern
Wisconsin had the negative of the ques
tion, and her orators argued that, while
the railways control the rates, there is
lively competition of which the public
gets the benefit, which would not be trua
if the fixing of rates was in the hands of
one body. Minnesota, having the affirma
tive, contended that under present condi
tions rates are controlled by the ilill-Var
riman-Morgan combination as effectively
as though in the hands of one man, and
that under a government commission
rates could be so adjusted as to benefit
sections of country which now suffer.
The Wisconsin debaters were Joseph
Koffend. of the Forum Debating society,
who had the closing; J. C. McKesson, of
Columbia, and Henry -J. Jones, of Athena.
Minnesota was represented by R. C.

DEPEW ON LOVE'S AGES.
Marriage Shonld Be Baaed on Intel-
lectnal and Physical Attraction.
Hon. Chauncey Mitchell Depew, the
distinguished junior senator from ' New
York state, is overflowing with happin^s
and geniality these days. A bridegroom
of four months, the halo of his honey
moon is radiant with budding joy which
"age does not wither nor custom staK"
In a burst of joyous confidence Mr. De
pew revealed the secret of love's young
dream at the autumn of life, and dropped
a few pertinent remarks on match-mak
ing. Coming from one of his years and
experience, his views have the"stamp of
patriarchal wisdom and will prove cheer
ing and soothing to people troubled that
"Has marpiage made you more of an
optimist than ever?" he was asked.
"Indeed it has!" he replied, with the
confidential air which sits so well upon
him. "Never did I view the world
through such rose-colored spectacles as
"You would recommend marriage as a
cure for the blues, then?"
"Not indiscriminately—it all depends 011
the woman! I have been informed t?Tat
there are instances in which marriage
works the other way."
"What Is the best age for marriage 7*
"That depends on the man."
"Do you think a young man is ever
really capable of appreciating a charm
"No, I don't!" said Senator Depew,
with abrupt emphasis. "It is a mel
ancholy fact, but a young man labors
under serious limitations in that respect.
To appreciate a charming woman—a
mature woman, a woman of intellect and
sensibility, whose character is formed
and whose heart la ruled by the million
delicate emotions and impulses which are
at once the strength and weakness of
the sex—to appreciate such a woman, de
Senator Depew laughed, and also blush
ed a little. "Many men take years to
ripen to that point," he continued, forci
bly recovering his gravity. "Some men
never arrive at It all. The usual history
of a man's education In love has Its sad
features. Take the average man who
marries early in life. He is young and
romantic, and so is she. In the beginning
there ia a great deal of sentiment, very
ardent, very beautiful. That is as it
should be. But he has his way to make
in life, and he does not know enough to
separate" business from sentiment. He
does not cease to be fond of his wife, but
he allows her to become his helpmate in
practical affairs—and if she is the kind
of woman I am thinking of. she works
like a little Trojan and proves invaluable
as a business partner.
"That is all very fine for him, and per
haps even srre—poor little soul!—does not
realize what has happened, but what
has become of the romance, the senti
ment without which a woman's heart
starves to death? Oh, they are still fond
of each other, of course, and their lives
are perfectly harmonious, but^-it is
very sad, very sad!"
Senator Depew shook his head with an
air of real melancholy and then, catch
ing himself in the act, burst into a peal
"In course of time let us suppose sfoe
dies," he resumed, cheerfully. "The man
fiels terribly bad about it. Ha thinks
that all the sentiment has gone out of his
life—not realizing how much he has done
to drive it out. He recalls what a good
wife she has always been to him, he pays
her the tribute of feeling lonely and un
happy, and—well, before long he is so
desolate that he is actually compelled to
Senator Depew laughed again over the
ashes of tragedy.
"He meets a charming woman with a
good deal of sentiment in her—as every
woman has—and to her he learns to fly
for consolation. She Is sympathetic, of
course—every woman is—and his grief
and loneliness affect her very much.
Her companionship becomes indispensa
ble to him. He sees her surrounded with
all the refinements belonging to her sta
tion, always at her best, and after a
while he finds romantic feelings stirring
within him where he had thought all was
"And so he marries again, and you can
imagine for yourself how much richer
the sentimental prospects are than in the
"Ts true happiness to be found through
any other path than the affections?"
"It is not." he said, emphatically, and
I speak from really a great deal" of ex
"The only real happiness comes through
the affections. Love is not a matter or"
