De Armond Says They Must
Redeem Republican Rule
peaks at Annual Celebration
of Crescent Club.
Says It Is Duty of Democrats
to Overthrow System,
Baltimore, March L Congressman Da
vid A. DeArmond of Missouri and Kenry
Gf orge Jr.. of New York, -were the prin
cipal speakers at the celebration of the
th.rtieth anniversary of the ' Crescent
Demicratic club in this city tonight. Let
ters were r-id from Ex-President Gro
ver CI ev I and. Mayor Tom. L. Johnson of
CT-rrelan-i, John DeWJtt Warner of New
York and Henry W. Lamb, president of
th? American Fre Trade society.
Mr. DcArznond's speech was a severe
arraignment of the Republican national
administration for its 'Imperialistic poi
Icwy." lie spoke in part as follows:
'"Those in control of the government
have carried it farther In a few years
than ever before it was carried in a reu-y
eration, and almost everything that has
bfijen regarded as sacred by our .ior
f athers has been disregarded. The biirden
and duty rests upon the Democratic par
ty to bring it back to sound principles.
The time was when this continent was
supposed to be sufficient, but the tiav has
come when far-distant lands beyond the
sea axe to be brought under our domin
ion, contrary to the teachings of all iho
wipe men of our history."
Adverting to the need of tariff reform,
Jfr DeArmond said:
"The only authority for taxation is the
necessity for revenue only. Tariff taxa
tion fchoula be adjusted so as to bring
the largest amount of revenue for the
:r .vernmr.t with the least of burden on
ih".-e who near the burden of taxation.
l.c pres--nt system of taxation has built
miehty trusts that wake legislators
. :A control legislation. It is the mt?sion
: the Democratic party to do what can
N- done to overthrow such a system.
' Tariff reform properly applied should
tike the tariff off those commodities sold
ai r"ad cheaper than they can be bought
3-1 America."
Mr. Geirge made a plea for free trade.

Dotie Away 'With and

Acts as Safeguard Against
Mistakes of Ignorant. '
"Washington. March 4. The commission
to revise and compile the laws of Porto
Rico, appointed by virtue of the act of
April 12, 1900. has submitted its report to
the attorney general. The commission
consisted of Joseph F. Daly, of New
York; L. S. Rowe, of Pennsylvania, and
Juan Hernandez Lopez, of Porto Rico.
The work undertaken was the revision
and compilation of practically all the old
Spanish laws.
The commission, after an exhaustive
study of the Spanish system, proceeded to
make the most necessary changes, such
as. the reorganization of the judicial sys
tem and the system of local government,
the revision of the laws of marriage and
divorce and wills and intestacies, and a
number of other important branches of
the civil and criminal laws. The most
Important work of the commission was
the revision of the organic act of Porto
Rico, commonly known as the Foraker
act. The system of local government
proposed by the commission Includes a
county, city and village organization.
Under Spanish rule the island was divi
ded Into 67 divisions, known as "munici
palities," which wer subjected to the
strictest form of control by tha government-
The mayors were appointed by
the governor general, and the members
of the town councils were subject to his
will, in fact if not in law. Local self
government was unknown. The commis
sion has taken a long step in the direc
tion of local autonomy, but has placed
sufficient power In the insular govern
ment to guard against the dangers of
local inexperience or incompetence.
Briefly stated, the system leaves to the
local authorities the management of local
affairs, but prescribes a definite standard
of efficiency in the most important serv
ices, such as sanitation, drainage, water
supply, street cleaning, etc If the local
governments fail to- meet these standards
rhe insular government is given power to
meet every emergency . x iie ihujcob wi
pus act is another of the important
changes proposed by the commission.
The subject of marriage and divorce
also is fully treated. The Spanish civil
code does not recognize divorce, although
a separation proceeding is provided for.
This branch of the law has been brought
it. close harmony with the system prevail
ing in such states as New York and
Massachusetts. In the matter of wills
and intestacies, the Spanish civil code
leaves but little freedom to-the testator.
Here again an adoption of the system
prevailing in the United States has been

the native drivers, the mules stampeded,

For two hours the British held out. A
few minutes of cautious fighting, and all
was over. The Boers galloped along the
line firing at every man who showed the
slightest tendency to resist, until they
reached and captured the guns. In the
excitement the Northumberland Fusileers
who had been cut off, succeeded in fight
ing their way out for some distance.
When their ammunition became exhaust
ed they charged with bayonets, but were
speedily overpowered.
By 7 o'clock in tho morning all resist
ance was at an end. The dead and
wounded were scattered all over the field.
Broken wagons and panic stricken horses
and mules made a scene of indescribable
confusion. Not until General Delary
came In person was anything like order
restored. He stopped the Boers engaged
in stripping the British wounded, by the
free use of the sjambock.

Judge Edward F. Dunne of Chicago,
presided, and made a stirring address in
praise of Robert Emmott. Speeches were

car are run and the police were unable to
cope with it from noon until after darS,
when the cars which were guarded by de
tachments of militia and had run with
difficulty all day were housed in the
barns. Cars were repeatedly derailed.
Wagon loads of stones were piled on the
tracks, and free fights between the mili
tary guards and the crowd occurred at
frequent Intervals. In one difficulty a
sergeant ran a bayonet Into the arm of
H. H. Harmsef, a barber." Mrs. Harmsef,
who was standing by her husband at the
time, knocked the sergeant to the ground
with both fists and discolored the face of
Lieutenant E. R.'Cale, who was near her.

And Comments on the "Ger
man Element" in Town,
Leaves Brilliant Scene of a
Banquet at Ten o' Clock:
Mllwaukee, March L Milwaukee was
host to Prince Henry of Prussia for six
hours this evening and gave him a recep
tion that was highly enthusiastic and
an entertainmeat that was unique. His
special train -came at 4 o'clock, and at 1
was away again on the Ions run to Ni
agara, and New England. The inter
vening time was all given over to the
reception and entertainment of tha royal
visitor. ' It began with a drive through
the business and residential districts, in
review before a crowd that numbered
200,0:0. Then there was a public recep
tion at which Governor Robert L. Fol
lett and Mayor David S. Roso voiced
the official welcomes, and the United
Singing societies raised their voices in
mighty chorus. There was also a splen
did illumination and a thrilling night run
of the Milwaukee Are department. Later
there was a banquet at which the prince
met leading citizens of the city and state.
The thousands of eGrman residents in
Milwaukee joined heartily in the wel
some of the young prince, to whose house
they once owed allegiance, and veterans
of the German wars gathered from
throughout the state t5 assist in the re
ception. Tha prince and his suite ran up from
Chicago over the Chicago, Milwaukee
and St. Raul railroad and there was an
enormous crowd at the station awaiting
its coming. There was a cheer when tho
prince appeared and another louder than
the first when he reached his carriage
outside the station grounds. Admiral
Evans and Mayor Rose entered his car
riage and fl flanked by police and guarded
by troopers of the First Yisconsia cav
alry, the drive through the city began.
Amabssador von Holleben and Assistant
Secretary of State Hill rode in the second
carriage, with Captain Frederick Pabst,
chairman of tho reception committee.
Just outside ef the station 1.00 veterans
of the German wars were drawn up.
They had come here fnim Green Bay,
Stevens Point. Port Washington. Apple
ton, Fon du Lac, Racine and other dis
tant points In the state, and they gave
the prince a volley of cheers as he passed
Uiam. The business streets were block
aded with people, and the police had to
fight to keep a driveway dear.
Prince Henry was gtven the honor to
rMe in the first carriage to cross the new
Grand Avenue-Wisconsin street bridge,
and as this point was reached Battery
A. station &1 on the lake front, tired a
saluto of twenty-one guns.
The reception of the prince as he drove
through the streets was wfldly enthusi
astic, and there was an ovation when he
entered the exposition Imflding for the
public reception. As he appeared on the
