Eloquent Appeals in Behalf* of Cuba. A FIELD DAY OF ORATORY Mr. H.?lc I'rjps tin- Senate t?i Policy or the Ailui'.nMni House Unseat* Mr. PIo or Alabama. (Hy Telegraph.) !W ASHIN?TON, Feb. 9.?For m u than three hours today the Senat chamber rang with eloquent atppea in behalf of the Cuban insurgent Announced speeob.es were delivered I 'Air. Cannon, of Uta'h, and Mr. Ma, o o'f Illinois, in advocacy of the adopth of resolutions which t'hey pr senti yesterday. Following 'Mr. Cannon speeah, Mr. Hale, of Maine, address? the Senate briefly, urging the 'Senate uphold the policy of the administri tion. Long before Mr. 'Cannon rose to a, dress the Senate, the galleries we .packed with people who were ana that this would be a field-day of Cub, oratory. Mr. Cannon's speech was calm and dispassionate argument support of his resolution. While IMr. Cannon was speaking sensational incident occurred. A met ber of the House of Representative standing near the Speaker, audibly d nounced as a lie. seemingly some stat merit Mr. Cannon had made. ?Mr. Cannon, tpale with feeling, ma, reply to what tit the moment seem an insult, but which was subsequent satisfactorily explained. 'Mr. Mason followed Mr, Hale In a long and at linn s fierce speech in which he urged the President immediately to intervene in the Cuban war, and end the struggle which on both sides bad become so brutal as to shock uhe sensi? bilities of the civilized world. Mr. Butler, of North Carolina, pre? sented an amendment to the constitu? tion enabling Congress to lay and col? lect an income tax. Mr. Morrlll, of Vermont, called tip his joint resolution authorizing the gilding or the statue of Liberty in the dome of the capital. The resolution ap? propriates $7.000 for the proposed work, and after a short discussion it wa. adopted, 30-22. The resolution offered by Mr. Can? non, of Utah, vesterday, urging t'he (President to 'notify Spain tli.it If it fail to recognize Ohe independeni.t' Cuba before March ?!. next, this govern men ? would then recognize the belligerent rights of the Cubans, and In ninety ?days thereafter assort the independence of the 'Cuban republic, was then laid be-fore the Senate-, and Mr. Cannon was recognized. In opening, Mr. Cannon, replying to the criticism of a New York newspaper, said that gomet'hlng more harmful than of the Cuban question, Mr. Cannon said: "I charge now that theipurpose of the administration is In consonance with the wishes of the Spanish bondholders, and before peace Is secured in Cuba security for the payment "f tin- tremen? dous debt of $400.000,000 must be give:; by the blood-stained Island. That. 1 say. appears to be too- wish of the ad? ministration, and, I may say. .if Spain." I.Mr. Cannon .-aid that President Mc KInley's signature to a document would set the 'Cuban people free. "What." he asked, "is it that stays th.- hand -o' Mc? Kinley?" .^_jM_r,_Cannon maintained that it was no anbt'lt'f satisfactory to tin- Cuban patriots or to the sympafhizers with them that the battleship Maine sfhould be sent lo Cuban waters. Above all. It waa no satisfaction to see the stars and stripes dipped to the Spanish en? sign. 'It is no answer to those in wait? ing for something effective .and fraught with results, that th.- administration should'have under consideration at tt.i. ciprocal trade relations with tlheSpanish government relating to the island of Cuba. In conclusion Mr. Cannon maintained that the present policy of the admin? istration was to hold Ho- Cubans while Spain outraged und pillaged the island. "I -believe that oik- strong, brave word spoken in time will absolutely free Cuba, and I am firmly tin- belief thai ?t'he result of such a word would not be war between Spain and tin- United States." Mr. Hale followed Mr, Cannon with a motion to refer the Cannon resolu? tion to t'he committee on foreign rela? tions, and with a speech deprecatory of the policy of Congressional declaration on the Cuban question, and in support of the course of the administration on that subject. Mr. ."Hale spoke of the release of all Americans frmin Spanish prisons, the recall of Weyler, and the establishment of autonomy in the island as showing what Ohe IPersident had accomplished. He did not agree with .Mr. Cannon that the people at large wanted war. The motion to refer was adopted without di? vision. Mr. Mason was then recognized. "1 deny," he said in opening, "the insinu? ation t'hat t'his is an effort" lo put the administration in leading strings. "1 am charged with seeking war." ex? claimed the Senator, "but my resolution is for peace. One word from this ad? ministration wiuld bring peace to this continent, and under the Providence of God.'we believe it would bring inde? pendence to Cuba." The thumb-screws of the inquisition were again brought into use in Cuba, proceeded Mr. Matron. .The pinchers -that tear the flesh from 'human bones 'have contributed to the carnival of cruelty. Three thundred thousand peo? ple marching to the grave. Three hun? dred thousand more starved: An-! yet the cry was raised that war was being sought, when the on.- and only cry was for peace and an end to this atrocity. 'Referring t., the duty of the United States. Mr. Mason said: "This government ought to maintain that the horrible unassaccs which are now too common in the island of Cuba and conducted under the guise of war? fare must lie stopped. We have no right as a neutral nation, fully regard? ful of the rights of nil.to look upon such warfare as within any reasonable con? struction of international law. The flag of truce has b.-en abandoned, pris? oners of war are being shot and it is evident that no one rule of civilized warfare is being observed. The con? flict has developed into a mere matter of murder on both sides?prisoners of war being shot or mache ted without triaiV; "He referred briefly to the tr.p tool, by Captain General Blanco through the island, riding as he did ride, in an armored ear under a heavey escort Spanish troops. "Thus he -.vent," de? clared Mr. Mason, "leaving men, wo? men and children to starve while t'he funds which were placed in his bands to relieve the distress of the reconcen trados and paciftcos were being used !?? appeal as bribes to the Cuban leaders. "Now that the Spanish forces have re? fused open battle." said -Senator 'Mason, "the only hop- of Spain is :?. overcome the Cuban leaders 'by bribes." He read a letter from an American woman who is a mother superior in a convent in Havana, to a friend in this country, picturing the condition of af? fairs there. "The war," .-he said, "bas destroyed the country, but while it has made many poor it has made others rich." Continuing she said thai Weyler. had succeeded in killing hundreds of thou? sands by this policy of concentration. SDante, he said, pictured with unrivel ed pen the horrors of hell, but was in? capable of depicting the terrors of life "~ '" n one of the conceatrados. The Re? publican party had promised to put a .lop to this condition of affairs and no .ne man bad a right to interdict this resolution, let him sit In tihe White Mr. Mason declared that notwith stand ng the declaration of the St. Louis platform nothing had been done? | 'noth ng," he said, "except to pass a ! we/: President M il .if the United states at oiiher consuls er the Uni i 'uba, relating t.. the war been received since tihe n il las:, and also request dent to inform the Sen ite .' ag>-n: ,.f ;l ^..vei'nment in n a credited to the govern IPresident of tin- United t\ wSUh Lhi t : i ,? otlher diplomatic or com ement with the United ,v hethf r such has been re? ihe r mresentative of such A: .". !?.

LIKE. A BOGUS TRILBY. She Could Fiddle I'nder Spurious Hypno? tism as Well as When Not Under It. A short time since there arrived in Port? land a young gentleman who is a very skillful and artistic performer on the vio? lin. On account of this and other good qualities, he found a warm weieome in musical circles, und frequent gatherings of the musically inclined were held for hin entertainment and to have the pleasure of listening to his playing. On one occasion there happened to be present nt one of these gatherings n young lady whom he had not previously met, tied who was also a performer of no small merit on the violin. It was arranged among the party that n joke should bo played on the newcomer; The evening passed pleasantly, many beautiful si lec? tions being played on the piano and other instruments by members of the party, in? terspersed with singing and conversation, the subject of hypnotism being brought up and discussed nt some length, the new? comer expressing his total disbelief in this occult science. Just before the time for parting he played with great feeling and taste one of Bee? thoven's sonatas, which was loudly ap? plauded. Then one of the party remarked what a line tiling it would bo if any one could be hypnotized und made to play like that. Another, who had expressed his be? lief in hypnotism and claimed ho possessed some knowledge of the science, said he be? lieved he could hypnotize any member o( the party and cause him or her to plaj the violin, perhaps not so well as the last performer, hut passably well. He was nt once urged to make the experiment, but no one was willing to be experimented upon. Finally the young lady mentioned was, at tho solicitation of her friends, in? duced to consent to be hypnotized. Tho usual motions were gone through, and she gradually passed into the hypno? tized state. Then a violin and bow were placed in her hands mid she was directed to reproduce tho sonata last played. She went through the entire piece without tin error, und played it about as well as the gentleman who had preceded her, to the wonder and astonishment of all, and espe? cially to the first performer. He had not tho least idea that the lady was ti violin player, and imagined that there must be mere in hypnotism than ho had supposed. Ho had his revenge Inter when the joke was explained to him by remarking that this was a fair sample of the workings of hypnotism. ?
