The sentiment In the :ei'.:ite was strongly In favor of the bi'l and senators who vcoted for :t w\ee rei;tly with Irgunlnents to supporIt tle!r action.lll The charge is made that the bill Is an admnliistrationl measulre and that \',tes were secured by caucus methodi+ but that charge falls of its own welg;.t. The fact that Senllators Allson aicnl i)Jlllvr of Iowa, Spooner and Quarles of WVi; Wna ain and Protor and i)lllinghlan of \ccr mont, all republlicans, voted against ith measure Is sufticient proof that the vote was not along strict party lines. l:;icht of these senators had reasons for oltpis- Ing the bill, but the sentilnent in Its aI'v ,r was overwhelming and it passed by a gool majority. Critics of the a 1u'ill;s tratlon and those who coupled th termn "graft" with the ship subusidy Wh! will receive little comfort from an iallaiql of the vote In the senate ye.terld:ty. NO PROMISES TO AGUINALDO. General Funston has dri\en thli last nail into the coffin of anti-inmpriallam and the issue in now o dead too dad ury. His candid statement of conditiontl, in the Philippines throws light ulpn our' attitude toward the native trine' anil disproves utterances malde by criti.s of this country's policy in those, isl ands. In his sip:e(h before the lotus club in New York recoently, Ge.cr'.tl Funston told of the capture of Agul etaldo and related the conversation he had with the commander of the insur gent forces ilnltedlately after he was taken prisoner. "I had a most important talk with Aguinaldo on the way down-anlrd by the way he is a very reserved, c'altlouLs man, says very little, end you have to get everything out of him by questions," said General Funston. "larcelona was very talkative, and conseoquently We lonll eluded that what he said was not of very great value. "The most important thing that we go t out of Aguina!do was in his rmel S ow moment about half an hour after .rL' iae capture, Just as soon as things owsmed down I went to talk with him, before he got his wits collected, and so I asked him a few questions, a little bit impressively. Of course we had all heard the story to the effect that Ad miral Dewey and various consuls and naval officers had promised the Fili pinos Independence. As far as I am personally concerned, Dewey's dental of that thing settles It with rce, iui just to see what Agulnaldo ott lld say I asked hint the question direct: "Did you ever have any promlise from anybody, ally Amerilcin i'armiy or navy officer, thlit the I nltt il States was go Ing to rtecognize the Fitlliinos?"

The ministers tendered their resignations on February 21, after an adverse vote in the cham ber, which was due to the unhandsome cotnduct of their socialistic allies. At that time the, government had just annonteed certain additions to its radical pro grain. The speech from the throne pl'romised that measures would ,be brought forward "to relieve the working classes, to develop social legislation, and especially a bill on labor contracts.'f Hut the question of strikes In the publle service was forced to the front by the threatening action of railroad employes and the determination of the cabinet to prevent them put the socialists in an ugly mood. Their managing committee met and adopted a motion which was Iruta:llly frank. It stated that the party had got about all It co'uld hope to get through its sttp)port of the Ilberals, and advocated desertion on account of the. stand that had boon taken by the gov ernment on the question of strikes alone. AM a result the( party votcd for a sepa-. rlre cand.lilate for president of the charn her. and the tnlnisters. laukilng a major ItY for their canll date, re'signe.d. There' was not, however, Ia joyful oppo nation to Iake theillr p1111'es. T'hb situationl was too serious to enclourage a thirst for power in any pollitician, and the cotnserv atives were more than willing that thel libelralsl shoulldt c.ontlinuet toI wrestle with the prplexling problem of the hour. The king, too, Insisted on the mlnlistry's re t+illllhing loffle'. Ho thel governll ent stayed along, anrd on the 25th of February It met the railroad difficulty by placing all Italian railway servants liable to mill tary service under martial law. About 25.000 men in this class were affected through the summoning of the reserves, and there was nothing for them to do but to submit quietly and accept the insignia of their military employment. There was something alluring in the prospect also, because their military pay was now added to their railroad pay at a cost to the state of some $500,000 a month. After this trick, which is said to have been managed very neatly during a strlet telegraph censorship, the cabinet still persisted In resigning, but the king wouldhi hear to no substitutes, and on March 11 the premier announced that he and his associates would remain in power.

MINISTER WU AND THE CENSOR [Chicago Record-IIerald,] It Is unusual for a minister at a for cign capital to be denounced as a boodler in his own home, but Minister Wu, who has had this experience, probably felt in very great surprise at a slap fromn a (lhinese censor. As he said, the board of ('nsors is a peculiar Chinese institution, ;idl its members are always camping on tib trail of ,fficials. The title .f the board translated is the "'nil-examining court," and according to that eminent authority on China, S. \\V'lls Williams, this curious branch of the government is entrusted with the "care of manners and customs, the in (estigation of all public olllces within ;.md without the capital, the discrihnlna tion between the good aund bad lerforn l anlle a of their business, and between the ildepravity and uprightness of the officers emplloyed In theam; taking the lead of o)ther censors, and uttering each ilis sen timlents and reproofs, in order to cause otticers to be diligent in attention to their dally duties, and to render the govern sient of the empire stable." It is necessary to take a long breath after such a recapitulation, but :t does not appear that the censors as aclass are overburdened by their numerous and grave responsibilities. While some of themr have rebuked imperial majesty it self at the risk of decapitation the theory of their office is better than its practice, and as Minister Wu declares, their in vestigatlons are not judlc.lal. The char acter of much of their evidence is Indl cated in the reprimand of one tf them by the emperor, who said: "They are not permitted to employ their pencils in writing memorials which are filled with vague surmises and mere probabilites or suppositions." On the question of his financial integ rity the minister is certainly entitled to the benelit of a suspended judgment. The Boers Still Capable.
