Feb. 10.?The proposals of some of the European Powers to take coercive measures Sgalnut Greece to enforce their prohibition of ('.nek action in Crete have aroused fierce pub? lic resentment throughout the Kingdom, and popular .bmands that the Government resist the action of the Powers at any cost are being ma.le In nil Quarter*, The Government, barked by the unanimous sentiment of th* people, still Insists that the Oreek flotilla In Cretan waters shall be allowed to act in a.a. rdance with the purposes for which the vessels were sent. If the European squadrons should prevent Greece from geting against the Turks by sea, a revolu llon In. Macedonia and Epirus ls certain to fol? low. Th.* attitude ass*im.*d by the Liberals In the Hi-it ish Parliament In regal d to Crete ls hailed with great enthusiasm here. Greece has relied, and still relies, upon an upheaval of the free peoples everywhere in her behalf, and this feeling of confidence in the sympathy of Europe rrenerally go.-s far toward explaining the de? fiant course she has taken. In the course of a debate in the Chamber of I'eputies last evening Premier Delyannls said that the Government was seeking to discover the reason for the action of the Powers In oppos? ing the operations of Greece In Crete. As a re? sult of the Investigations, he said, the Cabinet had arrived at certain conclusions, which, how? ever, he was not yet able to communicate to the Clumber further than to declare that Greece would persist In her policy and course of action In Crete. The military preparations on the part of Greece continue. Two more classes of the re? serves have b.-en called out. The King openly favors resistance to the demands of the Powers. The Greek cruiser Bpesln, with full steam up, n lying In the Piraeus awaiting orders to pro? ceed to Cretan waters, and advices from Mace? donia say that all of th" principal bridges and roads in that territory are mined in readiness to destroy them in order to prevent the advance of the Turks. A dispatch from Canea says that three of the great Poefers are tn favor of a union between Crete and Oreece. It ls reported that King George will appeal to the Hellenic race for a great national loan to meet the expenses of the military and naval preparations. LOCKED HIM IX TIIE ICEBOX. IN HIS STORE.

THE TREATY WILL GO OVER FILIBUSTERS IN CONTROL. ALL HOPE OF ACTION AT THIS 8E88IOW DISAPPEARS. THE SENATE SPENDS SEVEN HOI'Rfl AND A HAtf IN DEBATE. WITH THE RESULT ONLY. OP FORCING THE OPPONENTS OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT TO SHOW THEIR HANDS. Washington. Feb. RV?When the Senate ad? journed at 8 o'clock to-night, after a secret ses? sion of seven and a half hourn. It waa apparent to the most sanguine friends of the general treaty of arbitration with Great Rritain that no vote could be secured at this session of Congress. The fact that a motion to postpone until March Tt had been defeated by a vote of .10 to 20 af? forded no aatlsfaotlon. On the contrary, lt em? phasized the fact that those fighting the treaty intended there should be affirmative action of no kind. The debate proceeded In regular order until fl o'clock, when Senators, tire.j of the discussion and weary In body, left the chaml.er and re? turned to their homes. For two hours longer there was a dreary succession of yea and nay calls, and calls of the Senate for purpose of se. curing a <|uorum. which was no sooner found to be present than it would disappear. Fillbuster inK was Indulged In with old-time vigor, 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 ."esterday's session Mr. Sher? man sra ve notice that he would ask the Senate to "sit it out" to-day. The contest began as soon as the doors were closed with considerable en? ergy on the part of th* friends of the treaty, but they soon wearied In the struggle with the inevitable. Messrs. Rodge and Frye spoke brief? ly, but with great spirit, urging that the vote be taken this afternoon. Mr. Laid-fe said there could be no doubt that evvy Senator had made up his mind how he would vote ard any fur? ther delay would be a wa>te of time and an ex? hibition of a desire to prevnt aa tion of any sort. OPPOSITION DRIVEN FROM COVER. The speech of Senator Lodge was an effort to "shell the hushes." and if was successful In driving into the open thc enemies of the treaty. He was at once confronted with a retort from Senator Teller and Senator Stewart to the ef? fect that no vote could be bad. Mr. Teller then took the floor and spoke for an hour -.gainst the treaty and against present action. In the course of his argument Mr. Teller said that he was not prepared to say he would not vote for the treaty. He favored the principle of arhitratlon, but the treaty had been bungled and badly drawn, anl he believed there should be ample time for its consideration. The more the treaty was discussed the more prominent became; the objections which had been made to lt. Tha, Bengt*, Mr. Teller said, ought not to he asked to vite on so Important a question at thia late day In the session The State Department had been four years in framing a treaty which lt be? lieved to he perfect, but which the majority of the Senate knew did not protect the Interests of the American people.. if *?>? ?*-- - iener asKert, should the Administration and the country be so insistent that the Senate should deal finally with the suhject in a few BfSSlBBl MR. DANIEL ATTACKS THE TREATY. Mr. Daniel, of Virginia, made ono of those speeches, finished In oratory and rhetoric, for which he ls noted. He addressed the Senate for upward of two hours, and made a powerful Im? pression. He was against tne treaty, and ad? vanced some of the strongest arKuments which have yet been heard. War was not a bad thing. Mr. Daniel said, when the nation that went to war had the right on its side and was uphold? ing the honor and Integrity of Its people. Tha I'nited States was the only country Great Brit? ain feared, and if she could put this country under bonds to keep the peace, she would go ahead with her policy of aggression and ag? grandizement, and laugh at any protest the CnRed States might make, or defy any position it might assume against h?*r oppression of the peoples of the Western BeSBSSJ here. The Ameri? can people were a people of peace; the policy of the country for 130 years had been one of pea^e. It had arbitrated its differences time and again, and was pledged to that principle; but when lt went Into a solemn compact for that purpose with C.reat Rritain, there should l?e an equality of terms. The I'nlted .""tates had everything to lose by the treaty, and Great Rritain everything to gain. The C. ngress of the I'nlted States had never declared war unless war was Justifiable; Ihe I'nited States had never acquired any territory by war unless as the re? sult of a war that was for defence or necessary for the perpetuation of the Republic. "I love the blood of the Revolution." Mr. Daniel said In one of his impassioned outbursts. '"It ls full of all that is great and noble in the history of this country." Mr. Daniel then proceeded to show that the lessons of the Revolution ought not to be forgotten, and that the people of the Cnlted States should be wary of any overtures made to them by her traditional enemy. C.reat Rritain. although, speaking the -g-jssj tongue. Of all the Powers. Lngland was the one the United States should refuse to folloav blindly. It would | be a sorry day. he said, for this Nation, when Its hands were tied by an agreement that gave to Great Rritain all she asked, and compelled the Cnited States to keep quiet In the face of the policy that Nation will continue to follow, re? gardless of any solemn pledge ahe might give. Jl STICKS AS ARRITRATORS. In the course of an analytical criticism of tho provisions of the treaty. Mr. Daniel said that ths members of the Supreme Court ought not to be designated as members of the arbitration tribu? nal. He favored the Insertion of an amendment leaving the appointment of the members of that tribunal to the President, with the advice and consent of the Senate. Mr. Hoar suggested that the members of the Supreme Court had already been confirmed by the Senate, and .ach member of that body was well known. ?That may be true," replied Mr. Daniel. "We know the present members of that court, and we know them all to BS honorable gentlemen; but this treatv is for the future. We do not know who may b* the members of this tribunal in the fut? ure. All our Presidents have tuen g->od men and have appointed good men; but we do not know that all our coming Presidents will be good men or that thev will be actuated by the same mo? tives that have aatuated those who have gong before." Th.* third and last act speech of the day waa made bv Senator Lindsay of Kentucky, who rani the ratification of the convention and ?cil.>n to-day. Mr. Lindsay stoke for almost sn hour, devoting the most of hla Um* to ? refuta tl.m of the legal argumentn advanced by Senator Daniel and others, who have taken the gram nd hat th,. Senate waa aske.l to yield up Its pre? rogative as a part of the treaty-making power. A Ql'ORl'M VAN1SHKS. At the close of Mr. Lindsay's remarks the mo* Ron to postpone was voted down. Another ef? fort was then mads to securs a Ansi vote, but v
