ibroad for transmission to the Senate a syn
opsis of the pension laws (not civil) of leading
nations, with a statement ot annual appropri

Mr Hale (Hod.. Molruoved to take up the
Consular and Dlplomatlo Appropriation bill.
Mr Bacon iPem . On ) reminded tho Senate
of his notice that he would;to-day ask a oto
J on his Joint resolution adverse to tho acquisi
tion of foreign territory. That resolution was
not introduced bv him as a mere test for
speeches, as Mr. Carter had suggostod yester
day, but for a practical purpose If that pur
ine were to be fubsered, action on the reso
lution fhould bo taken within a fow days, be
cause the result would nlToct tho position of
FentoMnn the ratification of the treaty. It was
a joint resolution, and thoreforo thore should
le time for notion on It not only In the Ifc'cn
t!e, but in tho House.
Mr Hale "Id tint he sympathized with Mr.
Bacon's joint isolation, but ha thought that
ceeasionillr an hour should bo given to appro
priation bills, on which the Senate was now

twenty minutes.

portunity to attend the funeral of former Sen

and after remarks of Mr. Hoar laudatory of Mr.
Garland as a model of a benator and of a cen
tleman the motion was agreed to.
Ths Diplomatic and Consular Appropriation
bill aa then taken up. As It passed the
Iloo" it appropriated $1,705,533. The Sen

that amount by $5,000.

A Recnrd-IlrenklnKTotnt Unevenly Divided
lletvreen Intnrnnl llovenue Districts.
WAsntNOTOK. D. 0 Jan, 28,-For ten years
prior to 1803 tho Troasury t-ecelpta from ln
tornal rovenno taxes of all kinds varied from
$125,000,000 to J150.000.000 a year. Ono hun
dred and forty-flvo million dollars was tho
nvorage, and tho largest collections In one year
wroro during tho twolvo months ending July 1,
1803. This year's internal revenuo taxosnro
estimated officially for tho twolvo months ond
lug July 1. law. at $270,000,000. n total tar In
oxcess of any previous year In tho history of
tho Treasury Dopnrtmoiit, with tho exception
of 1800. In that j ear. follow Ing tho olosoof tho
civil war. a numbor of formor collections
wore crodltod to that year's account.
Last year tho total rcvenuo collections
of tho Unltod States. Including a portion of tho
porlod following tho war tax law of Juno 13.
1803. were $170,000,000. They wero $15.00').
000 In excess of tho Troasury estimate mado
tho yenr boforo, and from present appearances
tho consonatlvo estimate of tho Commissioner
of Internal Itovonuo will boctceedod for 180!)
by twlco as much, bringing up the totnl to tho
almost prodigious figure of $300,000,000 re
ceipts from Internal rovenuo collections for
ono yenr. Internal rovenuo collections nro
easily made. Tho oxponsos of collection nro
comparatively small, 2.20 por cont. last yoar,
a smaller figure than any previous records of
lntornnl revenue collection In this country.
Internal rovenuo tax laws nr enforced
under many advantages which enablo tho
Government to dorivo from them tho largest
benoflts. They aro uniform throughout tho
United States; they are lovlod chiefly at tho
point of production or mnnufneturo, and not,
as is often tho caso with customs dutlos. on a
flntshod or partly finished article. Contro
versies as to grade or valuation nro practically
unknown. Kvasion of tntornal revenue laws Is
voir raro and duly porllous. Tho uniform
and universal respect of 'the power and sov
orolgntyof the United States Government Is
such that, desplto tho most mlnuto and poslttvo
regulations and desplto tho large cost ot en
forcement by local authorities, it Is found
evor where that the liquor tax laws, for In
stance, are bettor and more fully enforced by
Federal than by Btato authorities. In such
States as Now York. Pennsylvania. Ohio and
Massachusetts, for Instance, tho numbor of
Internal revenue certificates for retail liquor
dealers has always beon considerably larger
than the State or local certificates or receipts,
for tho reason that no attempt Is mado to
ovado the authority of tho United States,
whereas tho obligations of Stato laws rest
lightly upon many Individuals, and the obliga
tions ot looal. county or municipal laws
still more lightly. A Government revonuo
of $300,000,000 in a year (or nearly $300,000.
000. for the exact volume of it cannot bo de
clared in advanco) represents a government
taxing power which, exercised without fric
tion, favoritism, oppression or Injustice, is a
marvel among nntlons. Tho estimated budget
of Groat liritain for-tho present year includes,
as usual. Internal rovenuo or "excise" taxes
In a very largo amount. The total estimate,
howevor. Is fJ7.750.O00, or an equivalent
In dollars of about $138.000.0lK), con
siderably less thnn the normal average
In the United States, and $.10,000,OtK)
less than tho Unltod States collections
ayearago. Tho British revenues fiom excise
taxes lust oarwore npproxlruatoly$80.000.000
from spirits. $55,000,000 from beor. and tho
balance from miscellaneous taxes, of which
about $1,000,000. or its equivalent In pounds,
were collected from railways. I'ranee.which Is
a heavily taxed country, collected last year
$55,000,000 (Its equivalent in francM) from
bplrlts. $5,000,000 from boer aud S15.000.000
from minor retail excise taxes, n total of $75,
000.000 Though tho total internal revenue tares of
the United btatos fall equitably on nil Inhabi
tants, the fact that they are collected at the
point of production rather than at the point of
distribution makos the business of the collec
tion ofllces vary to u great extent. Some States
and some districts of States produce largo
revenues; others, for no very clear reason, pro
duce little revenue
One of tho peculiarities of Internal rovonue
ofllco divisions is thattheirofllclaldeslgnations
are misleading For Instance, there are four
collection districts in Illinois, but they are not
known ns the First, Second, Third and lourth,
but as the llrst. Fifth, Fighth and Thirteenth
hy The answer Is this: Originally thero
wero thirteen intornal revenuo districts In Illi
nois at tho points following: Chicago Aurora,
Frceport. Qulncy. Peoria. Jollet. Danville,
Springfield. Avon, Winchester, Centralin. Alton
and Cairo Since the close of tho civil war the
various districts have been roduced in numbor
by consolidation, buttherohns been norovlsion
of numbers. Tho four districts which have
been retained are the First, Chicago; the Filth,
Feorla: the Eighth. Springfield, and tho Thir
teenth. Cairo; tho others exist no more. The
l'eorla intornal rcvenuo district is the banner
one of the United States with receipts last yoar
of 22.850.OitO. The Springfield district showed
receipts of $10,100,000. duo In both cases to tho
Illinois distilleries, which have considerably
overshadow od the business formerly done
by Kentucky in this particular, though the
Kentucky internal revenue receipts are still
large, though notwhollv from whiskey, tobacco
entering largely into the public revenues from
this sourco. Tho Louisvlllo Internal lovenuo
district, the Fifth Kentucky, tumod in $10.
000,000 of public revenue Inst yenr. ThoSixth.
at Covington, turned in f'.'.SOO.ooO : the Sev
enth, at Lexington, including tho blue grass
region or most of it. $''.000.000, nnd tho
Eighth, at Lancaster. S2.2oo.000. Ono of tho
largest Internal revenue districts In the coun
try, in point of the revenuo collected, is the
First Ohio district, at Cincinnati, which turned
In $13,000 000 last ear.
Thero wero originally thirty-two internal
revenue districts in INew York State, but only
slxot thom now remain, thoHrst. In Urooklyn;

Government, with n revenue lust year of nearly

WAstttNOTOS, Jan. 28. If thero has beon at
any tlmo n doubt ns to tho ultimate ratification
ot tho tioaty of peaco between this country nnd
Hpnln.that doubt now seems to have beon en
tirely removed. Tho dobnto over tho treaty,
which tins boen going on behind closed doors,
is gradually reducing tho opposition. Chair
man Davis said this afternoon that ho had
not tho lonst fear ns to tho result whon
tho voto should bo Ink en nordltl ho bollovo It
would bo necessary to pass any of tho ponding
resolutions ns a condition precodent to tho
ratification of tho treaty, Homo of tho ex
tremists on tho nntl-cxpanslnn sldo still Insist
that a resolution of some charnctor shall be
passed, and it may bo that such action will bo
necessary to give a fow Senators who dread to
assume the responsibility ot voting against a
convention which restores peaco an ecuse,
satisfactory to them, at least, for voting for
that which thny havo lilthclto antagonized.
At to-day's aocret session Mr. Frye conclndod
tho spooeh begun yostorday. Ho denoted n
great deal ot time to a discussion ot tho claims
against tho Spanish Government by Ameri
cans growing out of tho destruction of property
In Cuba and tho lmprlsoumont by the Span
iards of naturalbod American cltlrcns. This
agroement. ho said, was ono ot tho concessions
made to tho Spanish Commissioners, and
ho dofonded It as being genorous to
n fallen foo and advantageous to thoso
who had just claims against the Government.
Ho did not think the total of nil such claims
would bo moro that $12,000,000. Whon asked
what amount ot clnlms had been fllod with tho
bpanlsh Government, Mr. Frye said he did not
know, but It was understood that tho aggrogato
was quite small.
When Mr. Fryotouehod upon tho $20,000,000
bonus this Govornment Is to pay to Spain ho
provoked qulto n discussion, in which Mr.
Mason took a prominent pirt. Mr. Fryo riald
tho Peaco Commissioners did not tako that
quostlon Into consideration In their prlvnto
conferences. They looked over tho ground
carefully In tho light of tho reports that wero
heforo them and dooldcd that $20,000,000
would not bo a great sum for this country to
pay, and would still bo a very fair compensa
tion to Spain for her expenditures for p'aclfla
"I should llxo to ask Mr. Fryo or the Chair
man ot tho committee." said Mr. Mason,
"whethor we havo any nssurances that Spain
candollver tho goods wo eeora to have pur
chased. If wo aro to pay this money for her
docks, her wharv os, her public buildings, if she
has any over thore. nnd for hersovorolgnty of
tho Islands, can she deliver them over to usV"
"The treaty sas nothing about what this
money was paid for," Mr. Dav is replied. " The
commission simply gavolt to Spain In order
thnt that country might notfool too heavily tho
hand of tho v ictor. W hen the Senate shall hav e
ratified this treaty tho Unltod Stntes will
bo In honor bound to pay over this sum of
money without regnrd to tho attitude of tho
Insurgents and without regard to the ability of
Spain to deliver tho goods. This Government
simply agreed to pay tho money to Spain as
onoof the conditions of tho treaty of peace,
without taking Into consideration any of the
surrounding circumstances "
" Then we pay bp liu $20,000,000 for some
thing that Is neither in bet possession norm
ours." said Mr Mason "If I understand tho
situation correctly, tho Filipinos, tho insur
gent, nre In possession of everything on tho
Island buttheclt) of Manila. We aro seeking
tobuva sovereignty that cannot be delivered
to us and which Is being contested by the na
tives of tho country. Tho guns ot tho Filipinos
are now pointed nt our men, and no man can
tell when the conflict mav come."
" I should like to ask the Senator from
Maine." Mr. Tillman said. "If ho would bo

gents If that became necessary In order to on
f orco tho sov erelgnty of tho United btatos."
Mr. Iryo did not answer this question di
rectly. He said ho did not bellovo such a con
tingency would happen. Ho had tho utmost
confidence In tho discretion nnd diplomacy of
tho American ofneors nnd too much faith In
the good sense of tho natives to think that thoy
would precipitate such a conflict.
"If such n conflict does como." repllod Mr.
Tryo with emphasis. "thevor mon who have
been delav Ing action on this tioaty will be re
sponsible for the tragedv It is tho very con
dition which is dieaded by some boro that
should suggest that this treaty bo ratified
I without tho delay of another hour "
1'urtheron in his speech Jlr l'rye related tho
I difficulties tho Commissioners encountered In
thoirofforts to induce the bpanlsh Commission
ers to cede the Caroline Islands to this Gov -1
ornment, or at least ono of the Islands of that
group, for tho uses of a cable station Although
the Commissioners offered $1,0 XM)00 foi ono
of those Islands, the .Spaniards would not listen
to the proposition Thoj refusedoventoalseuss
it with tho Commissioners The demand for
religious liberty in the Carolino Islands caused
somo discussion between tho Commissioners.
It was the Intention to Incorporate In tho
treaty of peace tho provision of n former treaty
granting rdlglous liberty in tho Carolines
This was met on the parrot tho Spanish Com
missioners with tho statemont tint Spain
ulwas granted rollglous llborty to hor sub
jects bile this statoment was not borno out
by the facts. Jlr. Fryo said tho demand could
not ho very well pressed, nnd tho point was
Tho Commissioners took an especial Interest
In this subject for tho reason that tho Caro
lines havo always boen a favorite Held for
tho labors ot American missionaries Four
teen years ngn, when Spain and Germany
claimed tho l-hnd, the settlement of tho
dispute was left to tho Pope. Ills decision
was iu fnvoi spilii, and a former treatv
betWLon bpiln and tho United States granted
Americans lull tellglous llbcrtv 'I hot right
has latterly beon greatly abridged, but Mr.
Fryo said tho Commissioners received the as
surance that our rights under tho treaty would
bo moro falthlully carried out Iu the future.
The proposed "opon door" policy In tho
Philippines caused ronin discussion, and Mr,
Fryo explained how It cam.i that tho Commis
sioners ngieed upon this policy Ho said
Great llntaln m ilntalned such a policy
In connection with hor colonies, and an In
vestigation ot tho subject In that connection
convinced the Commissioners that It would be
tho proper s stem for tho Philippines. Ily this
!ollcj Spain was peimitted to trade with the
islands on thn same looting with tho United
States fnra term of years at lonst. and It re
moved some of the sting that accompanied the
loss of the islands He did not believe the
criticism ngtlnst this part of tho agroement
was well directed at all.
In urging the sin edy ratification of tho treaty
Mr Iro pointed out that a failure to ratify
would compel this Government to restore the
status of tilings thnt existed In and around
Manila before tho protocol was signed
and before the Amerlcnns look possession
of tho city. Manifestly this could not
bo dono. Tno treaty must bo ratlflod. and
thon this Government would have a clear title
that would oimblo it to danl with tho Insur
gents in our own way That way, ho predicted,
would bring pence, happiness nnd content
ment to the lllipinos and piosperlty where
now Is slavery nnd ubject povorty
Finally Mr frvo said, In rosponso to a que?
tlon that was put to him yesterday by Mr Till
man, that although the commission wns in
daily communication with the President, who
knew every move that was being made, tho
commission, win n It came to the settlement of
the Philippine problem, was directed by the
President to uso Its best judgment in disposing
of the question What that judgment was and
how its conclusions were reached Mr Fry" told
the Senate yefctordav.

Mr. Handy (Dem., Del.) roltorntod his assertion
that hn would havo had tho army and navy

Another Hurry of Itopublloan opposition to
