Mr Tnrple. trtlnit with the treaty by which
.J',; Cfa,d Florida to the United States In
!'! e!d that m that treaty It was provided
Inst '"pain could not sell or alienate the Island
t CaU to any European power, and that It had
bn declared In the Ostend manifesto fifty
.....ago that the title of Stain to Cuba was a
dfffMlb'e title. The man who owned real
Utt wtl,oul the power to alienate It had a
very Inferior title, a degraded title In a legal
,, not ! actual and unlimited title. So In
regard to the title of Spain to the Island of
Cuba. If Spnlu could not alienate Cuba to any
.oner but the fnltrd States, she conld not r
U'nherown title to the Island when Us In.
habitant had concluded that tho Sovereign
of ipatn and her adviser were the cruel
enemies and oppressors of the people. Spain
bad lost her pover In Cuba through her Insuf
fersbls oppressions. The Cubans during the
wars between Spain and her colonies hail been
loral to Spain, and Sraln should hare been
lojal to them. Instead of that the sword, bare,
whetted, had been the only Judge to which
Spain bad resorted In hor dealings with the
Cohan. The ten years of actual hostilities In
Cuba, from 18us to 1878. had closd. not by a
lappresslon of the rebellion, but by a treatr of
laclCeatlon. on expressed conditions for a re
dress of grievances. These last two yean of
war were a part of the same war begun In 1808.
What was the dnty of the American people
toward the question ? It was claimed that Con
gress cou.d take no action In the matter, and
tbat it mut wait for tho Executive. This
proposition Mr. Turplo attacked and argued
aialost. taking the Constitution of the United
elates, in the power given to Congress ovjr
commerce, as the authority for his contention.
Tbls power, given to Congress, was paramount
10J plenary. It was a general power, and It
could not be destroyed by a construction of any
sob-concession of the Constitution. Such a
construction most be and was untenable. The
constitotl mal grant of power was that Congress
shall have power tn regulate commerce (that
Is. Intercourse) with foreign nations. One
Important means of such commerce was
the appointment of Ambassadors and
Ministers. If the President refused to
anpolnl a Minister or Arabusador or Consul, or
say officer of thai character such as In the
opinion f Cungress wa necessary and proper
to carry not the power of regulating commerce,
toulil id action or Inaction of the Executive
Cfftai that power of Congress? He did not
iMt.i lunula. He was of opinion that when
Coniteas tiaut made a law declaring that Inter
tii'jrv with a particular nation was necessary
and prnprr. Congre-s could use all the means to
carry that purpose Into execution and conld
temporarily appoint all sorts of diplomatic and
political awi'Lts to be u.rd as a means for exe
cut.nf ilpurpo.e. He argued that the power
tUento (.onitre'a In the matter was primary
ssdvr.iniuuiit. and that the power of the Ex
ecutive a nuxtltary, ancillary, secondary, to
taut cf Col gres.
I'nngre" bad authority not only to admit new
Stale., but to miik all laws to carry thai pur
pose Inueircutlnn, and ho knew or no closer
enalcgyto the amuUslon of a new State than
ire rwBnll'on nf a new member in the family
of nation., w helher as a now nationality or as a
new lurmot government In an old nationality.
It was verr clear that a law for the admission
of a new tatr. for the collection nf revenue, for
lti mutation of foreign Intercourse, for the
rr.t jnK'.on of a new (iiiverument. may been.
form) and carried Into execution by the
r'.wor of Congress and of Congress alone.
i was Congress that regulated foreign
liitrrruur. not the President, not the
r-.Ti.ue. Mil when a treaty was made
rooitad etr tnti.e will of Congress It had no
tti Het ii:mliiii nf .1 new power was an lu-il'i-t
tor the rc-iiiiauon of commerce, and the
pnnernf Cohsrus over that aiibjeol was para
111111111. na Impoped uion Congress by tha
kprvme law nf tne land. Recognition might
br ii.n.U' in several way, by sendlnu an Ambas
tanur, by rrceltlng an Ambassador, by public
pn i, amnion. It nad been made by treaty be
tnrri too nation that were not engaged in the
eonietl at all. It had been said that the Presi
dent might recojnire a new nationality or a
u form nf government. That was true.

Capt. Chapman ot the West Thirtieth itreet
station had the case of Charles Ulnchman, pro
prietor of the HIJou Cat at SOS Sixth avenue,
whom he accused of violating the Excise law,
only to hare him discharged by Magistrate
Deuel ln Jefferson Market Court on Saturday,
reopened yesterday afternoon by arraigning
Hlnchman ln conrt on a summons. The Captain
said to the Magistrate that be had overslept
on Saturday aud that he did not think the
charge would have been dismissed then If he
bad been present.
"This man has sold liquor between the hours
of 1 and 6 o'clock mornings, although he had
no hotel accommodation there," explained the
Captain. "He has moved furniture Into the
rooms on the floor over 604. since the last ar
rest, but he has nothing to do with the rooms
over 602, which are rented by Mrs. Annie
Anntng. Those were the rooms which he told
me be bad originally furnished for hotel ac
commodations, but I have an affidavit from her
to the effect that be never had any right to
those apartment. Now, I understand that the
poor woman Is going to be evicted because she
ha furnished me with evidence against him. I
wish your Honor would bear her story."
TnthlsJ.MIUIkeu Foster. Hlnchman' lawyer,
objected, and asked for an adjournment until
Thursday afternoon. The Captain Insisted,
bowever. saying tbat he waa going to present
the case to the Grand Jury, and had also a
meeting" arranged with Deputy State Excise
Commissioner ISeorge W, Illlllard for tn-day
for the purpose ot having Hlnchman's license
revoked.
" ell." said the Magistrate. "I have nothing
to do with Mr. Illlllard. and If you are going be.
fore tbn Grand Jury, I do not see why we need
to go Into it here at all."
"Oh. I do not propose to go to the a rand
Jury until after the case has been passed uoon
here."
" Well. then. I think Mr. Mllllken's request
Is reasonable, and I will set th case down for
Thursday afternoon next at :! P. M."
Then the Captain Introduced the reporter!
to Mrs. Anntng, who said that she was going to
be dispossessed, but Immediately afterward ad
mitted that ehe had paid yesterday $40 on ao
count ot J7S for the month' rent. She also ad
mitted tbat at on. time she and Hlnchman bad
been friendly, and be had ben one of her beet
roomer until they fell out and he left.

Theatrical Manager Oscar UammersUln waa
arraigned before Judge Fitzgerald yesterday In
the Court of Oeneral Sessions to plead to the
Indictment charging him with maintaining a
nuisance by giving an Indecent performance In
the Olympla Mnslo HalL The show purported
to be a burlesque of th Seeley dinner. He
pleaded not guilty and gave SS0O ball. Mr.
House, his lawyer, said tbat It wa a strange
proceeding to Indict the Imitator when the
originator of the Seeley dinner show had not
been hauled up for violating the law.
"We have In our possession." said Mr. House,
"the testimony as to what actually took place
at Sherry's, and I ask the Court to order th
Orand Jury to Investigate the matter, and we
hereby offer to furnish ample evidence of the
events of that dinner."
Judge Fitzgerald remarked that the original
Seeley dinner performance waa being Investi
gated by the District Attorney, who was pro
ceeding ln the regular way and needed no as
sistance. District Attorney Olcott expect to have to-day
a copy of the testimony taken by the Police
Hoard about throrlglual dinner, and after look
ing over It will submit the matter to the Grand
Jury to-morrow. He Is of the opinion that in
dictment can be found on the testimony fur
nished by the women known as Little Egypt
and Minnie Kenwood. At any rate the Grand
Jury will have all the evidence in the original
Seeley dinner case for consideration on Wednes

WARniKOTO, Jan. 25. -Senator HIU has re
ceived a memorial from a local grange of the
Patrons of Husbandry In Cattaraugus county,
N. Y., asking for th appointment of J. H. Brig
ham of Ohio as Secretary of Agrloullure la
President McKloley'i Cabin., and he vras
around on the Republican side of the Senate to
day Inquiring what he wa expected to do with
It, II consulted with Senator Proctor, who
poses aa MoKlnley's nearest friend ln the Sen
ate, and he conferred with Senator Sher
man, who Is to be the head man In
the next Administration, and Is supposed
to take an Interest In the selection ot
his associates. The memorial was also submit
ted to Senator Chandler, who was not an organi
sation IcKlnley man, and never has been, and
dees not pretend to be. For these reason Mr.
HIU thought that Senator Chandler's advice
would be disinterested. Ho also conaolted Sen.
ator Drier, who once lived In Ohio, and had
more or leu to do with the formation of Cabi
nets in the post. But he got no satisfaction
from any of these gentlemen, and therefore do
elded to call th attention of the Senate to tbe
subject. To-mnrrnw morning he will lay tbe
memorial before that body for such aollon a
may be thought proper, anil take the opportu
nity of making a few pertinent remark". Sena,
tor Hill thinks that tho appointment of Cabi
net ofllcers by petition Is a new Idea. This
method has not been adopted br J. 11. llrlgbatn
alone, who in President of the National UranRe,
but by ex.Gov. Hoard of Wlaoonsln. Blank
are sent to dairymen all over the country to be
signed and forwarded tn President McKlnley.
These petitions are uniform. Tbey set forth at
length the virtues and public service of Gov.
Hoard, and ask his appointment aa Secretary ot
Agriculture because of the service he would be
able to render the cheese and butter Industries
of the country. Mr. John Grant of Texas, who
also aspires to a Cabinet ofllce, had his petitions
bound In voumea, with morocco covers and
handsomely embossed, 'lhey contain a fine
Photograph of Mr. Grant, too, tn order. that
Major McKlulev may study tiie face as well as
the character uf the candidate.
The Secretary of State bas sent several com
munications to Congreaa, both formal and in
formal, requesting nn appropriation of S1I50,
000 as the first Installment to pay the expense
ot the proper teuresentatlon or the United
States at the Paris Exposition of 1000. and
authority fur the appointment of a Commissioner-General
and statf of assistants, but no
action has been taken. It Is probable tbat
the Sundry Civil Appropriation Dill will
contain the necessary provisions. It wilt
not go Into effect until after President McKln
ley'a Inauguration and will therefore not Inter
fere with tbe aspirations nf Republican candi
date for the appointment. Nearly all of the I
great nations of the earth have already appoint
ed their commissions, have space reserved ln
the buildings at Parts, and begun the prepara
tion nf their exhibit, but the United States Is
usually last on these occasions and attends to
such things In a hurry. At tbe last
Paris Exposition this Government did
not get In an application until nearly
all the apace was awarded, and therefor
our exhibits wer scattered all oierthe grounds
tn the most Inconvenient and Inaccessible
filace. The European Government spend years
n preparation. In order to have their exhibits
complete and symmetrical, and, realizing tbe
Importance nf such expositions to their com
merctal and industrial interesta. they grant lib
eral appropriations and appoint tbelr ablest
men. In order that the arte, Industrie, and
commerce of tbelr people may be Illustrated In
the beet manner possible. The United States
has never bad an opportnnltr to show what w
ran do at a foreign exposition. The Commissioner-General
has never had time to make
adequate preparations. He has always been ao
limited In fund that he could not do the coun
try Justice. There Is yet three years before the
opening of the exposition, and If an appinprl
atlon is made and commissioners are appointed
at once after the Inauguration of Major McKln
ley It will be possible to do better at Paris In
11)00 than In 1880.
That part of the shipping laws of the United
State which authorizes the arrest ot sailors
who refuse to oUtcrvo the term of their con
tracts to serve on board vessels was to-day de
clared by the Supreme Court to be constitu
tional, and within the Jurisdiction of State
courts to enforce.
Justice Harlan. In a vigorous dissenting
opinion, asked what difference there waa in
essence betwe-n th overseer standing over a
man with a lash tn hand and compelling hltnto
labor against his will, and tne United Stalee
Government, through Its Marshal, oouipelllng
a man to work under a contract which he no
longer wished to observe. Discussing the pnssl.
blllllea nf legislation under the prtncioles nf the
decision of the court, he nsned- "What a sen.
satlnn would result from the passage by n tato
Legislature of a law authorizing the arrest of a
domestic employee who nad contracted for six
months' service, but who had at the end
of a month, tor reason satisfactory to
himself or herself, decided to abandon the con
tract ?" Yet, he aaserted, the right ot the stale
to do that rested upon Just aa solid a basis a
tbe decision of tbe Court in this rase. Tbe leg
islative department, he added, had nu power
whatever except such as wa conferred upon It
by the Constitution, and that did not give Con
gress the right to pa a law which compelled
one man to serve another against his will In a
matter ot purely personal and private contract.
Commodore George W. Melville, Englneer-tn.
Chief of the navy, la convalescing from the
effects of a severe operation performed on him
last Tuesday, which Is believed to have eradl
cated the cause of serious Intestinal disorder
which he contracted in Siberia after the Jean
nctte disaster and which has frequently since
that time threatened his life. Two weeks ago
the trouble assumed such malignant form that
the naval surgeons, after consultation, decided
thai Immediate operation wa the only hope for
the papular bureau chief, and he submitted to
their opinion. For a day or two his condition
was exceedingly critical, but he has finally
been pronounced out of danger, and Is expected
to return to dnty In the Navy Department the
latter part ot tbe week.
Representative Ilarthold ot Missouri, the
Chairman of the House Committee on Immi

Noelallat Labor I'edrratlnn'a Method af
Anticipating Heceaeloa,
Tbe Socialist Central Labor Fcderatllon which
the union barbers threaten to leave because it
la opposed to the proposed bill licensing barbers
Is taking lime by tbe forelock and expelling tbe
union. That is a favorite plan of the Federation
when a union becomes dissatisfied with Its
methods and Is about to secede. It was learned
yesterday tbat the Federation will vote next
Sunday on the Question of expelling the union.
Thai data waa selected because the union had
decided to wait until then befnrn seceding tusee
it the Feilerallou would withdraw its opposition
to the bill.
Of course, even Socialists cannot expel a union
without assigning ome reason. The Socialists
say that the barbers have been guilty of con
duct "utihecniiitng a union" lu Issuing 711.1
membership card when they have only lntl
members. This method nf watering the mem
bership stock la not uncommon In labor unions,
but the Federation say that. In addition, thn
barbers lease the watered membership cards at
a rental of ten cents a neck. The barbers do
clare that tho charges are ridiculous and can
easily be disproved.
