No Chance Now For a Vote This
Session,
TUB SENATE WAS IX EXECUTIVE
SESSION FOB OVER SEVEN
HOURS YESTERDAY', AND IT
WAS MADE APPARENT THAT
NOW IS NOT A GOOD TIME TO
HOPE FOR ARBITRATION?TEL?
LER SAYS THE TREATY HAK
BEEN BUNGLED WITH.
Washington, l-'eh. !'?? ? When the Son?
nte adjourned at s o'clock to night after
a st-? ret sesson of seven and a lud!" hours,
it was apparent to tlie most sangninc
friends of the irencral t reaty of nrhitration
with Urea! Britain that no vote could lie
secure'! at this session ol the Senate.
The lact t hat a mot inn t o postpone un?
til March ? hid been defeated by a vote
of :)0 to 20 a (Ton led no satisfaction. It
emphasises the fact that those lighting
the treaty intended thcre|shoiild be allirm
at ivc aet ion ol' no kind.
Tite debate proceeded in regular order
Until (i o'clock, when Senators, tired of
the discussion and weary in body left the
chamber and proceeded to their homes.
For two hours longer there was a
dreary succession of yea and nay calls
and calls of the Senate for the purpose of
securing a quorum, which no sooner ap?
peared thait it disappeared. Ifillbusttr
itig was indulged in with tin- old-time
vtuor and when, after two hours of this
sort of thing, the call of the Senate failed
to establish the presence of a quorum a
motion to adjourn prevailed and the
treaty was left, hanging in the air.
At the close of yesterday's session Mr.
Sherman gave notice that he should to
day ask the Senate to sit. it out. The
contest beimu as soon us the doors were
closed with considerable energy on the
part of the friends of tin- treaty, but they
soon wearied hi their struggle with the
inevitable.
Lodge and Ft v spoke hrielly.hiil with a
great deal of spirit, ureing that, the vote
I13 taken this afternoon. Mr. Lotlnc said
there could lie no doubt that every Sena?
tor had made nr. his mind now la- should
' vole and any further delay would lie a
waste of time anil an exhibition of a tic
sire to prevent action of any sort. The
speech of Senator LotllfO was an effort to
?'shell the bill-lies," and it. was successful
: in driving into the open the enemies of
I the treaty.
He wasntoncoconfronted with a retort
from Senator Teller and Senator Stewart
to the effect thai no vote, could he bad. I
Mr. Teller then tsnk the llocr nail -poke
for an hour against the treaty and against
present action. In the course of his ar?
gument Mr. Teller said he was not pre
oared to say that he should not vote for
the arbitration treaty. lie favored the
principle of arbitration, hut the treaty i
had been bungled and Badly drawn and {
he believed there should he it in pic time
for its consideration. "Flic more the I
treaty was discussed the more prominent
j became the objections thai bad lue:: ::.. du
to it
DANIEL'S STRONG SPEECH.
.Mr. Daniel, of Virginia, made one of
I those speeches finished in oratory and
i rhetoric for which he is noted. lie ad
j dressed the Senate for upwards of two
hours and made a powerful Impression,
lie was ngaiust the treaty 'ami advanced
sonic of .the strongest arguments that
have yet been heard. V\ ar was not a hail j
thing, Mr. Daniel said, when the nation
that went to.warhad the right on it - side ;
and was upholding the honor Jand in teg- .
rity of its people. The United State- was
the only country that Great Britain
feared anil if she could put us under
bonds to keep the peace Great Britain
would no ahead with her policy of iiggres
slonnndnggrandizcnient and lausrhni any '
protest that we might make or defy any
position we might nssume against her
oppression of the peoples of the Western
Hemisphere. The American people were
.1 people of peace; the policy of the cotic
try for a hundred and twenty year- had ,
'boon one of peace. It had arbitrated its
differences time and again and was
pledged to that principle: lint when it
went into a solemn compact for t hat pur
pose with Great Britain t here should hi;
an equality of terms. The United States
had everything to lose by the treaty and
Great Britain everything to gain. The
Congress of the United States had never
declared war unless war was justifiable:
the United States had never acquired any ;
territory by war unless as the result of a
war that was of defense or necessity for
the perpetuation ol ictmhlie.
"1 love the blond of revolution,'' said
Mr. Daniel, in one of his impassioned ut?
terances. "It is full of all that is great
ami noble in t he history of this count ry.'
Mr. Daniel then proceeded to -how that
the lessons ol the revolution ought no! to
he forgotten, and that the people of flu
United States should he wary of any over
Hires made "to them by her traditional
! enemy. Great Britain, speaking though
they tlo the same tongue. Of all the pow?
ers England was the only one the United
Stales should refuse to blindly follow. U
would he a sorry day lor t his unlinn when
its hands were tied by an agreement that
gave Great Britain all she asked and com?
pelled us to keep qiliet in the face of the
policv that nation will continue to follow
regardless of any solemn pledge -he may
give.
During the course of an analytical crit?
icism of the provisions of the treaty. Mr.
Daniel said the nicmlicrs of the supreme
court ought not to he designated as mem?
bers of the arbitration tribunal. lie
favored the insertion of an amendment
that, left the membership of that courI to
the President by ami with the advice and
con-ent of the Senate.
Tin- third and last set speech of the
day was made by Senator'Lindsay, of
Kentucky, who urged the ratification of
the convention, lie ipoke for almost one
hour, devoting the most of his Vmic to a

prerogative as a part ^of the treaty-mak?
ing power.
At the conclusion of Mr. Linduy's re
murks the effort was again made to
secure a vote, but this effort was tuet by
motions to adjourn, whlch*were invaria?
bly voted down or developed the uusence
! of a quorum.
Mr. Sherman pleaded in vain for an |
tigrecmcut for a day and hour upon wh'eh
I the vote might be taken. Kvery sugges?
tion of Iiis was objected to, and roll cnll
i continued to succeed roll call until it was
' impossible to secure a quorum. A mo

carrying appropriations to supply defi?
ciencies for the current llsctll year and
prior years. It encountered its first snag
when Mt. Grow.of Pennsylvania, insisted
that In- had a riuht to speak as long as he
wanted to on it. This proposition was
discussed for some time and resulted in a
victory for the venerable Pennsylvania
member, who devoted some extended re?
marks, not to the appropriation'bill, hut
to the Oklahoma free homestead measure.
Then a long discussion was started OJ
Mr. Richardson, of Tennessee, over an
item to pay special attorneys for defend
lug suits against the United States. Mr.
Richardson wanted to know the use of
paying attorneys to defend such cases
when the judgments given 'against the
United State-., particularly in claims un?
der the Bowman act, were never paid.
Many memliers spoke with regard to the
propriety of paying the Bowman claims,
tint when the afternoon was nearly over
the discussion was dropped.
The hill was not finished at ? o'clock
when the House took a recess for three
hoars. Mr. Payers, of Texas, gave notice,
that ho would offer amendments to the
dcticicney anproprlatioiis in behalf of the
Southern Pueillc Railroad Company.
