Hay-Pauncefote Treaty t Is Ratified
The ITimlti ■ ■■■■!■» Clayton-Bulwer
Treaty Heroines a 1 hint
of the Past.
How York Sun Saoalml Sarvlom
Washington, Dec. IT.—The Hay-Paunce- ;
fote treaty was ratified by the United
States senate yesterday (as announced in
the last edition of The Journal yes
terday), and the old Clayton-Bulw«r
treaty, which has for fifty years been, an
embarrassment to this government, is no
more. It has been superseded by the^iew
' treaty, which, if not entirely satisfactory i
to all,« removes the most serious objec- j
tions of partnership in the old treaty and i
enables the United States alone to con- j
. struct, own and control an isthmian canal i
without being prohibited from fortifying
it or inviting the European powers to
unite in guaranteeing its neutrality.
Whatever the new treaty may lack in
defining the power of this government
under it, is made up in the clear interpre
tation put upon it by the senate in ad-i
vance of -ratification, without any protest |
from Great Britain. One of the great em- j
barrassments of the Clayton-Bulwer
treaty was" an Interpretation put upon it:
by Great Britain after it had been rati
fied by the- United States senate. There
is no possibility of such modification of j
the meaning of this treaty.
The republicans stand unitedly for lie (
new treaty, not because i: represented all j
they would have.had in such a treaty, |
but because it gave this government all i
that is necessary to guarantee its absolute ]
control and ownership of an isthmian j
•anal, and because it clears the way for ;
canal legislation. j
Senator Morgan will to-day call up his |
bill reported last Thursday authorizing !
the, president to conclude agreements i
with the republics of Costa Rica and J
Nicaragua for the acquiring and full con- I
trol of such territory as may be neces- j
sary for tjie canal, and to govern, reg- I
ulate, police and protect the same. He j
will seek to have this bill passed by the
senate this week, before the holiday i
recess, but the democrats who opposed |
and sought to delay ratification of the ;
treaty, will refuse consent to this legis- j
lation, which is the preliminary step to |
that for the construction of the canal. |
Those who have been loudest in their de- (
xt.aiui for an isthmian canal have done i
most to delay ratification of the treaty,
«nd they will block legislation as long as j
possible. '
■ The agreement reached on Thursday to j
vote on the treaty yesterday enabled Sen- :
ator Lodge, who had the management of
the question, to prevent further delay j
and secure the ratification, j After the
agreement was secured the opposition to
the treaty, which last week was threat
ening, melted away until only six demo- j
crats voted against it, while the vote in
its favor was seventy-two: Senators
Teller, Till man, Mallory, Blackburn,
Bacon and Culberson voted against it.
An amendment offered by Mr. Gulberson,!
to insert the Davis fortification amend
ment of the last session was defeated,

London Globe** Interpretation of the ;
Canal Treaty. • ■
London, Dec. 17.—With the .exception of j
the Globe, the afternoon newspapers to
day comment approvingly on- the ratifica- [
tion of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty by the
United States senate yesterday. The |
Globe sees in the overwhelming majority.;
for the ratification proof that the com
pact is regarded by the senator as one
sided and calculated to adversely affect i
British commercial and political interests.
The paper says-
Senator Teller's offensive phrase, ""In her i
present mood," clearly signifies the conviction j
that England has become too submissive to;
stand up for her rights against the great re- \
public. It i? a surrender, not a bargain. We

Washington, Dec. 17.— Representative
j Each of Wisconsin Bald to-day:
Wisconsin is now developing an extensive
| tobacco industry, and for this reason 1 am not
willing to admit the Cuban-tobacco into this
country free of duty. .Neither am I willing to
admit Cuban sugar free. In the past Cuba
! has paid the tariff duties on sugar and to
bai-.-D and has made.a large profit out of these
products. Nothing has occurred to my knowl
edge which will .prevent the Cubans conduct
ing their sugar and tobacco plantations on a
profitable basis, even if they pay the full
j Dlngley rates.
There is a sentiment in lavoc of making
some slight concession to the two leading
j Cuban products as long as Cuba* occupies its
• present position—that Is, while- we- are ex«r
--' eisii.g a protectorate over the . island. A
i slight concession would not work an injury to

Pittsburg, Dec. 17. —Harriet P. Murphy,

j a burglar early this morning.' The mur-
I derer has not been captured. * Miss Mur
\ phy was the only sister of Select Council
i man. John A. Murphy, end was 30 years
I old. She, with her brother and two ser
vants, women, lived alone in the house.
i Miss Murphy, who . slept on the second
; floor, was an expert with the revolver,
i having practiced for the purpose of pro
tecting herself in the event of just such
an attack as happened this morning and
■ she always had a pistol within easy reach;'
j" Her brother was awakened by two shots
: in the house and, hastening to his sister's
: room found her lying dead on the floor
■r with, a bullet in the head. The' burglar
had scaled the porch posts and entered. the
window of Miss Murphy's- room by break

noise of the crashing glass awakened her
and that as she jumped from the bed with
j her revolver in her hand, the man fired.
I Miss»*Murphy usually kept the collections
i for the Kingsley house fund in her room,
until recently, and it is thought the burg

Chicago, Dec. 17.— Testimony was of

j suit for the appointment of a receiver for
John Alexander Dowie:s Zion lace indus
tries to show that Dowie possessed some
mysterious power over his disciples and
that by means of it he induced them to
obey his commands implicitly. Samuel
Stevenson, the plaintiff, who charged
Dowie with having defrauded him of $185,
--000, swore that Dowie waved his hands
j and exerted this influence by pressing him
j closely to his body. The attorney for the
j defense tried to have this power appear
in the records as magnetism but the court
would not permit it.
Stevenson testified that three times he
had felt an indescribable awe when Dowie
| pressed him to his body and that from
this influence he and other persons felt
that Dowie could call down a curse upon
! him effectually.
He related how Dowie is said to have
declared that if Dwight L. Moody did not
cease his fight against Zion that he would
not say that Moody might not die, and
that later Dowie told how Moody had
taken sick and died.

so far as they have had an opportunity
to test it, is strongly in favor of a thor
ough investigation of the navy depart
ment. Attempts will undoubtedly be made
to prevent it, for the department has
nothing to gain, and presumably much
to lose, in any movement which will throw
light on the policies of the past few
years; but it is believed in well-informed
quarters that an investigation will come.
The only thing that can prevent it is a
radical change In congressional and pub

It has been suggested that navy in-j

Trying- to Involve MvKlnley Admin-
leitration in a Great Scandal.
A'«w York Sun Special Service
Chicago, Dec. 17. —A Washington special
to the Inter Ocean says:
Secretary Long desired to let the report
of the Schley court of inquiry speak -for it
self without comment from himself, but
Admiral Schley has again made this im
possible by carying his case from the
court to the secretary, with the intima
tion that he will carry it to the president
before he accepts the verdict against
him. Admiral Schley sent to Secretary
Long a letter requesting him to withhold
his approval from the findings of the court
until he (Schley) had an opportunity to
file objections thereto. In making this
request Scbley was acting on advice of
his counsel.
About the same time Senator Jones, the
democratic leader in congress, introduced
in the senate a cleverly worded resolution
tendering the thanks of congress and
the American people to Rear Admiral
Schley for his distinguished conduct at
Santiago on July 3, 1898, and requesting
the president to cause the resolution to be
communicated to Schley. This resolution
is almost identical with that adopted by
congress after the battle of Manila ten
dering the thanks of the congress and the
American people to Admiral Dewey and
his men.
Senator Jones had method in his pres
entation of this resolution. He did not
expect it to be adopted by the republican
majority, but he did and does expect to
pave the way for making Sehley a martyr
persecuted by the republican administra
tion. Schley's friends are now planning
to make him the democratic candidate for
president in 1904. They believe that they
can make it appear that he is the victim,
of a partizan administration that struck
him down because he is a democrat. Ad
miral Schley may not be a party to this
scheme, but he has fallen into it, and his
action in filing a protest against the find
ings of the court is in harmony with it.
Long; on the Defensive.
The admiral and the democratic lead
ers have made it impossible for Secretary
Long to ignore the report of the court
or pass it with simple endorsement as
he had intended. He must now defend
his administration, and he will do so.
He has been advised by administrative
leaders that there is no way of longer
ignoring the case of Admiral Schley, and
that in passing upon the report he
should review it and show wherein Ad
miral Dewey went beyond the naval reg
ulations in expressing an opinion on
matters not brought before the court of
inquiry. The secretary of the navy will
therefore review the report and express
not only his approval of the findings of
the court, but his disapproval of Admiral
Dewey's opinion as to the command at
Santiago, showing that this opinion is in
defiance of naval regulations, and also
not in keeping with the report which
Dewey agreed to and signed.
Dewey again seems to have fallen into
a trap set for him by scheming poli
ticians. He sympathized with Schley,
an.d after agreeing to the findings which
utterly destroyed Schley's contention that
he did his duty, preliminary to the battle,
sought to lighten the blow by adding his
personal opinion that Schley was the
senior in command, and to him was due
the credit for the victory at Santiago.
As a politician Dewey is as innocent
and ignorant as a child. The democrats
found it impossible to take him for their
candidate in 1900, but they are now ready
to use him and his sympathy for Schley
to help In a campaign against the re
publican administration.
Involving- the McKinley AdminU-
The position of Dewey is unique and
the administration has recognized that in
its desire to avoid carrying the Schley
case further by passing criticism upon
Dewey's personal opinion as to who is
the "hero of Santiago." But the effort to
destroy Admiral Sampson has now devel
oped into an effort to Involve the Mc-
Kinley administration in a great nava
scandal and make it appear that McKin
ley and Secretary Long were in a con
spiracy to destroy Schley. It is no longe
possible for Secretary Long to ignore the
question at issue. He must defend his ad
ministration even if in doing that he ha
to point out the faults of Dewey as presi
dent of the court of inquiry.
President Roosevelt will not re view th
case if appealed to him. He will not giv
the democrats an opportunity to say tha
he criticized his predecessor's adminis
tration. He was assistant secretary of th
navy at the beginning of the war with
Spain and knows much of the reasons for
the assignment to command—why Samp
son was selected for commander-in-chief
and why Schley was given command of the
flying squadron and then sent to Join
Sampson under the command of that offi
cer. The president knows the whole in
side history of the Schley case as it
touched the more delicate politics of na
tional administration and he has the cour
age to put his foot down on any scheme
to use him and his present high office to
cast reflections upon th# administration
of President McKinley.
Admiral Will Protecute Maclay, but
Not Sue Publishers.
Washington, Dec. 17.—At a dinner of
the members of the Maryland delegation
in congress it was announced that Admiral
Schley would not sue the Appletons for
civil damages on account of the publica
tion of the Maclay book. It was an- ,
nounced that the admiral was adverse
to bringing such a suit on account of the
appearance being that he was seeking
monetary damages, and he said he ;
wanted no money damages. His friends
announced that a warrant would be ftsked
for the arrest of Edgar Maclay. on the
charge of criminal libel. The charge will
be based upon the publication of the
Maclay history of the navy, in which
Schley was termed a coward and a caitiff.
At the meeting of the Marylanders it
was decided to have introduced a resolu
tion to replace Schley on thfe active list
of the navy with the rank of vice admiral
and then to retire him' on full pay with
all allowances. Friends of Admiral Schley
have prepared a draft of a bill to ap
propriate $10,000 for the purchase of a
sword and a medal for him. - •'. ■•

per industry in the face, and that unless
immediate efforts are put. forth to right
existing 'conditions a crash will result
that, will equaj. the collapse of the famous
Seeretan corner In copper, about- twelvs
years ago. The remarkable prosperity
the- Lake Superiorcopper district is now
enjoying, where millions of dollars an
going into new stamp mills and various
other improvements, is in striking con
trast to these prophecies. There is not
| a moner, timberman or laborer of any
sort in this district who is not contented
with present conditions.
It;. has been stated, and with much
truth, that the Amalgamated Copper com
pany is restricting the output of its Mon
tana mines. The feeling all over the |
country seems to be that the Amalga- j
mated will have to cut down production
in order to maintain present prices, but
this policy will have little effect on the
production of the lake district. The in- j
dependent producers of this district are !
not planning a reduction in output, but j
I rather an increase. Contrary to general
j opinion the prospective increase will come
I mainly from the expansion of those prop- j
I erties which have been regular producers
for a decade. It is true that several mil-
I lions of pounds of refined copper will be
; produced by the newer mines during 1902,
but the Lake Superior copper mining in
dustry has reached such a magnitude
that the newer mines have little effect I
j on the production of the district for from
I three to six years after they are opened. '
| The newer mines of the lake district will ;
but commence their production in 1902, j
although the combined output of these
properties - promises to be large a few
years hence. . • -
Reserves Enlarged.
The Calumet & Hecla has enlarged its
reserves on the conglomerate lode and in
many other ways prepared for an in
creased rock production. The amygdaloid
miue will very likely go into commission
during the latter half of 1902. This mine,
underlying the conglomerate mine at a
distance of 730 feet, and opened from sur
face through five large double compart
ment shafts, modern in every respect
has been the subject of much newspaper
controversy, it may suffice to say that
the amygdaloid mine is by no means a
failure. Although the Osceola amygda
loid lode is not so heavily mineralized
as the Calumet conglomerate, the richest
copper lode in the world, it is neverthe
less a valuable one, the rock from which
will run 1 per- cent mineral. The Calumet
& Hecla, and for that matter all other
large producers in this district, is treat
ing a lower grade rock than formerly
reserving the rich grade against a Tuture
decline in the price of copper
The Tamarack is now equipping its No.
5 shaft, which Ayill eventually increase
the production of the mine by 50 Dei
cent. The No. 5 shaft will not become a
producer befitting its capacity until 1903
n Km Present indications it should
swell the Tamarack's output to the »K

"Pernicious Activity in Behalf of
the Butter Imtereatn.' 1
Washington, Dec. 17. —The National
Dairy union is sending broadcast a cir
cular in which Representative McCleary,
of Minnesota, is accused of pernicious
activity in behalf of the butter inter
ests. The letter is addressed to the ag
ricultural press of the United States and
is signed by Charles Y. Knight, secre
tary of the dairy union. It says:
We regret to note that Mr. McCleary of
Minnesota ha^ cut loose and is endeavoring
to iiavo his bill accepted, in the face of advice
and protests. Mr. MeCleary, we do not be
lieve, is in as good a position to look, after
our interests as Mr. Tawney, and the latter
has brought years of active efforts in behalf
of the dairymen of the United States. His
Eplendid efforts for the Grout bill at the last
ses3ion earned his right to lead in the house.
There is a great strife among our friends for
this honor of leading what they expect to be
on? of the most notuble and successful fights
ever undertaken for farmers in congress.
It ia added that the bill supported by
the dairy union will be known as the
"Tawney-Grout bill."

Thin Country Cannot Ouaxt of Hay-
In« the Greatest and Bent.
• _ New Orleans Times-Democrat
• We are in the habit of boasting a great
deal in this country," said the book worm:
but when it comes to libraries we are rather
low on the list in comparison with other
countries Still we have the best system in
the world. We have this virtue as a rule
wliich distinguishes us from other peoples:
What books we have we read. That's why ■
we have them on hand. I was reading the
statement again, a few days ago, about the
world great libraries, and. to be candid
about it, 1 did not like to see the United
States so far down in the list. There is the
Bipliotheque Nationale, of Paris, with 2,600
--000 volumes; the British Museum, of London
with 2,000,000 volumes: 1,200,000 in the Im
penal library at St. Petersburg; 1,000,000 in
the royal library at Munich, while the library
of congress, at Washington, has only about
8,0,000 volumes. The Boston public library
has 820.000 volumes, and the New York public
library has 706,000 volumes. But one point
which must not be overlooked is the fact that
we have now scattered all over the United
.States libraries which are free and constantly £
open to the public, and the books to be found •
in the more prominent libraries do not repre
sent all the nation has. The fact of the.
business is that we probably have more books'
at the public disposal, for the mere registra
tion of a name than any other country of the
world, and what is better, as I said before
what books we have we have them to read
and digest. We believe in a wise dissemina
tion of governmental power, and we have
made practically the same rule apply to our
library system. But I would like to see the
United States in a position to boast of having
the greatest and best library on the face of
the habitable globe, the greatest numerically,
and the best from the standpoint or the
world's highest literary standard. . That's '
the kind of an American 1 am, and I can't
help It, and wouldn't If I could." . .-
