The Alabama Senator's Speech on
the Cuban Question.
HE SAYS TIHS ADMINISTRATION

CUBA INSTEAD OF A LAWYER
HE INSISTS THAT OUR GOVERN?
MENT OUGHT TO BE MORE AC?
TIVE IN PROTECTING AMERICAN
Washington, April 0.?Two of the im?
portant appropriation bills?the sundry
civil and the Indian appropriation bills?
which failed to receive thu President's
signature at the last session and were re
passed by the House, were reported from
the committee on appropriations in the
Senate to-day and placed on the calendar.
Mr. Pettlgrew, of South Dakota, said
he would call up'the Indian bill at an
early day, and Mr. Allison, of Iowa,
stilted that tin* sundry civil bill would be
called up next week.
Mr. Eari, of South Carolina, on behalf
of the new Senators, asked a reorganiza?
tion of the Senate committees so as to
give representation to those not now
placed upon any committee. He offered
a resolution providing that the Senate
should meet at !) o'clock to-morrow for
At 12:111) a. m., Mr. Morgan called up
his resolution recognizing the existence
of a state of public war in Cuba and be?
gan an extended speech thereon.
Mr. Morgan's remarks were temperate
in tone. He commented on the tact that
this was the third time within a century
that citizens of the United States had
sii ffered by the existence of a state of war
in Cuba: and he expressed his opinion
that in the present war. at least, the gov?
ernment of the United States in its efforts
to enforce its own laws had indicted in?
justice on its own citizens. The solo ob?
ject ot his resolution was to put the Gov?
ernment of the United States in its proper
legal attitude to the government ol Spain
so as to enable us to take care of our own
He confessed that after the experience
of the last four years he was utterly
hopeless that any administration of the
United States would reach the point of
sending sh'ps of war to Cuba to demand
redress for our citizens. He cited the
case of Dr. Rubs, "-tating he had informa?
tion that Consul-Gcnernl I.ee had re
ported that he had lieen^murdered by the
"If this were true" said Mr. Morgan,
"instead of hunting up a lawyer to go
to Cuba and hunt up evidence such as
might be laid before a grund jury, I
would have sent a warship to demand in?
demnity nnd'tho punishment of ,the offi?
cials guilty of the murder."
Mr. Hale, of Maine, interrupting, asked
if the Senator from Alabama advocated
sending the ship of war first and the law?
Mr. Morgan replied that he would send
both the'ship of war and* tlie lawyer, hut
he thought he would have very little use
for the lawyer.
Speaking generally of the course of tlie
war in Cuba, Mr. Morgan condemned in
strong terms the action of the Spanish
forces in destroying property not for mil?
itary purposes, but for resentment, and
in executing prisoners of war. He spoke
of the tact that Spain had recognized the
Southern "Confederacy and accorded it
belligerent rights even before the battle
of Manassas was fought or the Southern
Stales had made any display of theii
strength. He, therefore, argued that the
United States would be perfectly justified
in recognizing a state of 'public war in
Cuba and proclaiming neutrality between
the contestants, as was "proposed by his
Mr. Hale asked on what information
Mr. Morgan based his statement that the
orisons of Cuba'were filled with Amer?
ican citizens. He,- Mr. Hale, did not be?
lieve that to be the fact.
Mr. Morgan 'asked the Senator from
Maine on what'informntion'he based his
Mr. Hale began his reply by saying:
?'The Senator !? an aid?"
"No, 1 am not old," _retorted Mr. Mor?
Mr. Hale continuing, amidst laughter,
? The Senator is an old an experienced
lawyer, though young in physical vigor,"
and Mr. Mogran smilingly accepted the
amendment. Then Mr. Hale went on to
say that the records of tlie State Depart
ment directly contradicted the statement
of the Senator of Alabama, but he, Mr.
Hale, did not wish to imply that that
gentleman would knowingly make an er?
Mr. Morgan, with some warmth, as?
serted that every one knew the source
from which the Senator from Maine drew
his inspiration. Every one knew he was
In constant communication with the
Spanish government as to the l>est way of
defending them here.
Mr. Hale declared that not one single
item of information that he had used on
tho floor of the Senate had come from
Spanish authorities, but all hail been de?
rived from American sources.
"Did they contradict**what the Ameri?
can people s.iy:'" asked Mr. Morgan.
"They did not contradict what the
American people say," retorted Mr. Hale,
"but they contradict the. Senator from
Alabama. 1 do not admit that the Sca?
nt or from Alabama, in seeking to in?
flame public sentiment and to bring
about hostilities, represents tlie Ameri?
"It is a matter of Indifference to me
what tlie Senator from Maine thinks,"
said Mr. Morgan contemptuously; but his
further renmrks were interrupted by the
fall of the gavel and the announcement
that the hour of 2 o'clock had arrived and
the resolution would go to the calendar.

ST. LOUIS REPUBLICAN.
St. Louis, April 0.?After a campaign
of three weeks, during which 'every trick
known to municipal politics was worked,
the city election took "place here to-day.

Ziegenhein for mayor, was elected by ma?
jorities ranging from 3,0(10 "U> l8,O0O"in a
total vote of about 80,000.

Carter Harrison, Jr., Elected Mayor
THE END OF JA MOST EXCITING
CAMPAIGN IN THE "METROPOLIS
OF THE WEST?TEN TICKETS IN
THE FIELD?MR. HARRISON RAN
WAV AHEAD OF THEM ALL?IT
WAS A GREAT VICTORY.
Chicago, April 0.?With the magic of
his famous father's name, aided by the
independent split in the regular Republi?
can ranks and the flocking of the discon?
tented laboring class to the standard of
silver Democracy, Carter Henry Harri?
son was elected mayor of Chicago to-day
and a great Democratic'triumph was
The 5(5,(100 plurality oi McKinley over
Bryan was turned into a Democratic plu?
rality of about 85,000 over Judge Na?
thaniel C. Sears, the machine Republican
candidate for mayor. The almost com?
plete mayoralty returns show that Harri?
son polled a plurality of about 75,000 over
tho next best man, Alderman J. M. Har?
lan, a Republican, who ran ou the citi?
zens ticket by himself.
The figures also indicate that the "next
mayor polled a small majority over all
the three other principal candidates?
Sears. Harlan, and Washington Hesiug,
the ex-postmuster and German editor,
whose ticket was called 'Business Ad?
ministration o' Municipal Affairs." He
is a gold Democrat, but his boasted
strength among the independent men of
both parties dwindled to about 1(1,000
total vote. Harrison's total vote is about
140,000. less than 5,000 under the vote
polled by William J. Bryan. The Repub?
lican total vote is about. 57,000, while Mc?
Kinley polled 200,747 votes in November.
The rest of the city ticket attorney,
treasurer, and clerk, all the town tickets
and a large majority of the common coun?
cil have gone Democratic on the tidal
wave, with tlie possible exception of the
Hyde Park town ticket. Harrison or
Harlan carried every ward in the city and
the. Republican machine was repudiated
everywhere. There is really nothing left
tor the Republican party to console itself
with, except a few aldermeu whose re?
cords were good and who happened to live
in wards that are usually Republican.
The argument of the Republicans that
if Hesiug and ITarland. the two independ?
ents, had withdrawn, Judge Sears would
have won, does not hold good, when it is
shown thnt Harrison has a clear majority
over all three. The other city tickets in
the field cut no figure at all.
There was a joyful demonstration of
Democrats on the streets when the victory
tecame assured and thousands gathered
in front of newspaper offices to cheer us
the news was displayed. There were im?
promptu parades, fireworks and much
cannonading of the atmosphere.
Carter Harrison said of the result:
?It has been a victory of a united and
not a divided Democracy. Gold as well
as silver men cast their ballots for me
and registered a protest against Republi?

The late returns indicate that the Dem?
ocrats will have thirty-nine aldermen out
of sixty-eight*in ^tlie council. Twenty
eight of the Democratic candidates i?re
probably elected 'out of thirty-four and
with the eleven Democratic hohl over
aldermen, will give that party a majority
in the legislative body.
The candidates for mayor were Carte?

mayor, tlie Democratic nominee: Nathan

Republican nominee: Washington Hesiug,
