He referred to Mr. Foraker's advocacy of

that he (Mr. Tillman) had presented a meas
ure that had been highly spoken of by both
Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Foraker.

Tillman's Support of tlie Bill.
Mr. Aldrich declared that Mr. Tillman
had become bo enamored of the Hcuse bill
that he had deserted his own measure and
this accusation Mr Tillman vehemently de
nied "I never deserted my baby, he said,

Congress does not settle the question the
people will next time elect one that will.
\|r Dolliver outlined, his attitude on the
question of suspension, expressing the opin
ion that the powers of a court ofeiiuuy
cannot be abridged. A provision like Mr
Bailey's would, he said, be agreeable to
him if it could be sustained by the courts.
He explained his apparent sensitiveness rel
ative to the remarks of Messrs.- kayner
and Tillman by saying that he
such a hard time defending the bill from
the attacks of Its enemies that he felt that
he had a right to expect more charity to
ward It from Its professed friends.
Mr Tillman replied that with some
amendments added the democratic senators
would be found to be as zealous in support
of the bill as any of the republicans.
After further discussion Mr. Cullom re
m irked that "this thing had gone alK>ut far
enough." and at 5:1?> p m. moved an execu
tive session. The motion prevailed and at
5 17 p.m. the Senate adjourned.
Group of Boys From New Jersey Seeing
A group of seven youths, accompanied by
Mr. Bunn, general secretary of the Lake
wood (N. J.) Young Men's Christian Asso
catlon, arrived here Monday and have been
"seeing Washington." The boys are guests
of the Washington Young Men's Christian
Association during their sojourn, and In
clude the following: Benjamin K. Fowler,
Albert M. Pettlt, Wlnnlfred D. Fowler,
Walter H. Applegate, Sidney Metcaif, Cecil
G'. Fielder and Charles R. LeCompte, Jr.
By appointment the delegation called
upon President Roosevelt yesterday, and In
addition to the usual greeting from the
President was given a short talk contain
ing some good counsel about the value of
brains as well as brawn, and urging the
boys to put In plenty of time In study as
well as foot ball.
The youth-a are being entertained in
the Boys' Department building and hav
ing their meals In the association dining
room. They are enthusiastic over the out
ing and In their praises of the Washington
assoc la lion's hospitailty.
This Is the beginning of a series of edu

Goes to Reform School.
After an errand which called him into a
local store a few days ago, Charles Clark
came out, expecting to ride off on his wheel.
During that brief ten minutes thus occu
pied some one else had gone off with the
bicycle. As it was afterwai l discovered
William Gill was the boy responsible for
the disappearance of the wheel.
About an hour after getting the wheel,
it waa stated, Gill sold It to Itobert Cupid
for $3. The owner saw Cupid riding the
wheel and claimed It. Cupid turned the
wheel over to Policeman Mulhall of the
second precinct. Detectives Trunil>o and
Grant, from headquarters, arrested lilll for
the larceny and he was before Judge Kim
ball In the Juvenile Court yesterday. He
was committed to the Reform School.
Secretary Tart vtslted New Tork city
yesterday afternoon Mr? Taft followed
later in the day and j>iined the Secretary
at tJje home of his brother. Henry W. Taft.
Besides presiding at the meeting of the
prison ship martyrs' commission, in the
mayor's office, the Secretary conferred with
John G. Milburn. representing Speyer &
Co., concerning the l)id made by Mr. Mil
burn's clients for the construction of rail
roads in the Philippines.
To all inquiries as to his possible accept
ance of an appointment to the vacancy that
will be created by the retirement of Jus
tice Brown from the United Stales Supreme
Court Mr. Taft s.iid:*
"It should he manifest that I may not
with propriety talk of that matter at this
That the ?ecretary will confer with his
brothers in the matter that would so vitally
affect his political career may, however, be
confidently assumed, tor the presence of his
three brothers In New York may not be
fairly regarded as accidental.
Henry W. Taft give a dinner fast night,
at which there were present, besides the
Secretary, his brothers. Charles P. Taft of
Cincinnati and Horace B. Taft of Water
town. Conn.
Luzon Railway Contract.
Seen before the dinner, the Secretary said:
"The matter concerning which I conferred
with Mr. Milburn was the bid of Speyer &
Co. on the proposal for the building of about
four hundred and fifty miles of railroad in
the Island of Luzon, with Manila as the
principal center of the system.
"The bids for building the lines projected
for the islands of Negros, Cebu and Panay
have been accepted and the contracts
awarded, but only one bid was tendered for
the construction of the Luzon lines.
"t'pon readvertlsement of the proposal
there was again only one tender, that of
Speyer & Co. It Is- not entirely satisfac
tory to the War Department, and negotia
tions are therefore in progress with a view
to satisfying ihe government requirements
In the matter."
Speaking of the recertt battle with the
Moros at Mount Dajo and the great mortal
ity to the natives that resulted, the Secre
tary said:
"1 am satisfied, from my knowledge of the
Moros that were the subject of the attack,
that our soldiers indulged in no inhumani
ties, save only such as are inseparable from
war. These Moros were of the uncivilized
Mahometan variety, who were preying upon
the peaceful element of the Moro popula
tion. They were bandits whom It was nec
essary to subdue. They were fanatical and
treacherous?an exceedingly dangerous ele
ment. Our soldiers were compelled to make
the attack under conditions most difficult,
and 1 am sure they were as considerate of
life as was possible under the circum
The Philippine Tariff Bill.
The Secretary spoke with frankness of his
feeling concerning the refusal of the Sen
ate to pass the Philippine tariff bill. He
"It was a disappointment to me, and I
feel that it was a mistake not to pass the
measure. I am unable to say exactly the
measure of material benefit that would have
come to the Filipinos from the operation
of the law, but the moral effect of demon
strating to the Filipinos our desire to help
them would be important."
Of the conditions affecting the progress of
the isthmian canal construction, Mr. Taft
"My latest cables from Engineer Stevens
show that freight Is now being handled with
celerity, and that the organization of the
forces on the isthmus is beinr perfected,
and-, altogether, everything is progressing
in a manner that fully meets our expecta
Concerning the part be is taking- In ^tlie
anti-Cox movement in Cincinnati, the Sec
retary s?.id:
"My letter accepting membership in the
Roosevelt Republican Club was' a deliberate
statement of my convictions, and quite fully
Coveted the subjects discussed."
He, however, reiterated his opinion that
"there is no logical relation between mu
nicipal and national politics," but added:
"The neces*ity for maintaining party or
ganizations renders it very difficult to secure
their practical separation."

Sale of Intoxicants Near Fort Wash
ington Attacked.
Sjx'rlnl Correspondence of Tbe Star.
If a proposed bill presented to the Prince
| George county delegation In the Maryland
i legislature becomes law there will be no
tnore liquor sold on house>oats In the
waters of the Potoma ? river under the Juris
diction of Maryland, and the sale of in
toxicants in the neighborhood of Fort
Washington, Piscataway district, will be
considerably restricted. The officers and
non-commissioned staff officers at the Port
Washington military post have signed pe
tition* addressed to the representatives
from Prince George county, in which a
number of voters residing near the post
In Prince George county have joined.
The ftrst section of the bill is intended to
put tt stop to the practice of "housoboat
ing," and Bets forth that Fort Washington
is surrounded on three Bides by water, and
on all sides efforts are made by lawless
parties to debauch the soldiers and profit
themselves financially, by means "of low
dives built on flatboats.
The post commander has at times, It U
stated, been compelled to post extra senti
nels to keep aoldler# from going to these
places. It Is contended that the state of
Maryland owns the Potomac river to low
water mark on the Virginia side, and that
the legislature iias ample authority to leg
islate In this regard.
"There is no sympathy among any class
of respectable citizens with this kind of
moral piracy," the petitioners say, "and we
most earnestly request that it be suppressed.
The enactment of a law In the terms re
quested tvould also operate to close the
bars 0:1 steamboats In Maryland waters."
The proposed law would also increase
the number of signers necessary to an ap
plication for a llquoir license from five to
eight. anJ requires the signers to make
affidavit to the statements made in the ap
The fourth section provides for a three
mile law about Fort Washington and the
petition states that "there Is practically no
population, in the Immediate vicinity of
Fort Washington, sufficient to require even
one saloon. These two saloons, Just out
side the post, are for the sole purpose of
nullifying and vitiating the anti-canteen
legislation by Congress. It would be only
a courtesy shown by the state to the gen
et al government, if every state would enact
a three-mile law applying to' every military
jiost within Its territorial limit. Where this
haa been requested by both the military
authorities and practically all of the voters
of the vicinity, as in the present case, there
appears to be no good reason why euch a
law should not be enacted at once."
The letter accompanying the petition ii
signed by Ca.pt. Blater W. Springer, chap
lain. Artillery Corps, Ci'lted States army.
