"AN UNJUST ACCUSATION. Illegal Executions Jlorc Bitterly Condemned by Kepresentative Men of the South Than by Any Others. REPODLIC EPECIAI.. Washington, D. C. May 2L President Roosevelt, In his Memorial Day address yes terday afternoon at Arlington, made some utterances which have astonished Washing ton and brought down upon him extremely sharp criticism. Democrats in Congress ac cuse him cf "waving the bloody shirt" and of making a bitter, unjustiflable and sense les sattack upon the South. Republicans admit tint this characteriza tion of his remarks Is pretty near correct, and expiess great regret that the President did not consult some of the leaders of his party with respect to the propriety of cer tain passages In his address. The parts of the speech which are criti cised are tho reference which the President made to lynchlngs in tho South and his comparison of the!e atroclt's with the cru- ties In the Philippines, find h's comment Uonr Southern denunciation of Northern .arfare during the civil conflict. Members of Congress, both RenuMlcans and Democrats regret that the President raaa thess remarks, which are construed bm an almost direct attack upon the South. Southerners Indignant. Senators and Representatives from the Southern sections &re extremely peiere In their condemnation. They say the chargo the President makes against them Is abso lutely without Justification. "As I understand the President's re marks," said a Southerner, "we Senators from tho South who are criticising the army Jn the Philippines are accused of upholding the practice of lynching negroes. The charge Is false. We do not believe In lynch ing; wo condemn It as Ugorously as tho President or anybody eke. While I was serving n the Governor of my State I per sonally drafted a bill to prevent lynching, and the bill became a law. It was a most drastic measure. "One of Its provisions was that when ever a Sheriff should permit a prisoner to be taken from his custoiy and put to death his office should be declared acant. I Instated that the law st.ould be executed faithfully, and It was so executed. No man has done more to suppress lynching, according to his opportunities, than I have. The same attitude has be. n taken by the leading men all over the South. "I'renident Is i:rr:itlr." "Another thing the President rajs I ob ject to. He puts the responsibility for the attacks on the Philippine army on tha descendants of the Confederates, if I un derstand his languape. Now, It Is a fact that tho resolution under which the Philip pine Commission Is Investigating the charge if j of cruelty brought against our armv was ! Vliot Introduced In the Senato by a Southern Vnan. nor even uy a Democrat.

"I do not care to characterize th Presi dent In connection with hie address to day. I will simpl say that his remarks ft? rcr ?! ! to be President of the united States.1 Has Estranged the South. Another Southern Senator, speaking In similar vein, expressed his abhorrence of lynchlngs, and told of the efforts he had iaade to suppress them In his State. It mad him indignant, he said, that the President should charge him, along with others of his part of the country, with (jiving their tpproval of lynching. 'JThat was a very unwise nddress," con ned the Senator. "It will serve no useful arpoie. its effect will be to arouse Eec- lonal feeling. 1 cannot lmaelrte n level. (headed man saying such thlncs. How dif ferently Mr. McKlnley would have spoken on sucn an occasion. In fact. It would never have entered Mr. McKInley'e head to make sucn a charge as Mr. Roosevelt made to-day. I do not think the South will care much for Mr. Roosevelt after this. He Is dead so far as my section Is concerned." Another Southern Senator predicted gen ernl condemnation of the President's ud dreis throughout the country. "The pre of Che United States." he said, "will stout ly rebuke the President for bis ill-advised and extremely unjust remarks." - Xh sentiments of such Republicans us YEAR.

' 0 s4sB were willing to express their views was that the President had been lnjudlelaus; that he had not helped himself nor his party by what he had said, and that the army would not stand a whit better for the President's defense of it. Blackburn's Comment. Senator Blackburn Of K-ntucky said: "I Lave no criticism to pass upon any public speech the President may make. It is a matter of Indifference to me what he says. If, however, he considers that in de fending the proposed Philippine policy of the administration. It Is necessary to refer to Ijnchlncs in this country to Jus tify the atrocities said to have been perpe trated by the army In the Philippines, it is but poor Justification to say to those who are In opposition, 'you are another.' " Representative Lattimer of South Caro lina: "I think It was Inappropriate to take ad vantage cf such an occasion to make a po litical harangue.. The people went there to pay ih-ir solemn tribute to th dead. Ail scntionb were interested In that worthy t:lbute. Under the circumstances It was. In my judgment, highly improper for the head of this great nation to indulge In political utterances which had a t-ndency to de stroy tho effect of the appropriate remarks he made In the earlier part of his address." Senator Berry of Arkansas: "I have no comments to make upon the President's speech in the newspapers. What I have to sa on the subject, and I expect to have something to sjj, I will say In the faenate." Ilooicvelt'a I'oiltlnn. President Roosevelt's position In the mat ter together with his reasons for speaking "Ji" did at Arlington are embodied In the following statement made by a h'gh ad ministration authorltj to-day: "The rreldent is quite prepared for a storm of Democratic wrath over his Me morial Day speech at Arlintgon. He made the speeth after long consideration, because he thought that the time had arrived for the Commander-in-Chief of the Army to apeak plainly and he will follow that speech up with others in the same line If he thinks tr.at the situation requires further treat ment at his hands. The President had no thought of attacking the South on the' sub ject of lynchlngs and he was careful not to mention the South. But if what he said Is a shoo that fits anybody In the South who has been defending lynchlngs by pub lic speeches or condoning or approving them by silence, then he can put It on. Just so long as the opposition In Congress attacks the entire army Just so long w'U the Pres ident be In favor of defending the army against its traductrs. even if the Issue has to be carried into the approaching cam paign." Cochran" Canntlc Attack. Representative Cochran of Miss url said: "The most brutal lynching that ever oc curred in the United States occurred at Leavenworth, Kas., where a negro man charged with outrage was burned at the stake In broad davllcht In a eitv -nHh n population of :. Nine-tenths of the peo- Pie of Leavenworth were present at th lyncl.hig. as were also some of the most weanny ana mnuentiai citizens or tne State of Kansas.

May 3L "I'm afraid we'll have to put a hoop around Mark Twain's head before he leaves Hannibal." said Mrs. ; Laura Frazer. Mark's first sweetheart, now , Hannibal. "I'm afraid he'll be 5Poild," she con tinued, "but I suppose If there was any danger of that It would have happened long ago." Mark's first sweetheart, who Is believed to be the original of Becky Thatcher In "Tom Sawyer." Is now a. matronly lady, whoso memory Is still clear concerning those early times. "We lived right across the street from the Clemens family," she said, "and I saw Sam, as he was known to Us then, nearly every day. Yes, as children we were at tached to one another. I remember tho last time I saw him. It was Just before we parted for the last time; we were seating on Bear Creek, and I can distinctly recall that I had trouble in getting on one of my skates, and Sam performed the service beau tifully for me. "I havo a little remembrance of a date much later. It was the time when he was married. He sent me a wedding card, bat did not know my husband's name, and sent the card to my brother, addressing It. 'Mrs. ,' to my first sweetheart, whom I knew twenty-nine ears ago.' " Mrs. Frazer still has this card, which she prizes highly. SEES TWO OIJI FRIC-iDi. Last night Maik Twain met Mrs. Frazer at dinner at the heme of Mrs. John H. Garth, and the talk reverted to the inci- dents arid the friends of their youth. This i afternoon Mark visited Mrs. Frazer at the Home for the Friendless. A story nttaehes to a visit made by Mark Twain yesterday, of which no word has yet been said When Mark was Sam. and perhaps "Tom Sawjer" to boot, he knew a girl whose full name was Azelia Ermlnle Cordelia Tranquilla Emlile Em- rlne Penn. Her father owned Mark's birth- I place, a house In Florida, Mo. The visiting author rememliered thenamo Azelia. etc., Penn, and found that the lady was now Mrs. Fowkes. 70 years old, living on Sixth street In Hannibal. He lost no time in calling on her. A clfuded sky and a drizzlin morning prevented any excursion to outly- 1 Ing places which possess a sentimental at traction for Mark Twain. Fatigued by his busy Memorial Day, though ho said he enjoyed it greatly, he kept to his room ! until noon a proceeding entirely unaccount able to those who remembered Sam Clem ens as the boy, whose father saw that he rose promptly with the sun. Dlictmses I.onncy nnd Its Treatment. Returning to his hotel late last night, ho was still in the conversational mood, and talked to two or three listeners for an hour or more.

That man Is not a lunatic." This last very decisively. The subject of lunacy suggested, he con tinued: "I've often been In lunatic asylums as a guest. I remember once in Belfast. Ireland, where there Is an Immense Insti tution, the superintendent's Idea was that, dangerous lunatics should be treated as if they were sane as If they were not the least dangerous. He allowed them the freedom of the asylum grounds. He was very phil osophical, and thought that to humor In sane men was tho way to cure them. Per haps It Is. but that superintendent was killed by some of his lunatics just a few days after I visited the place." SIny Jiot Visit Fnmoo Care. Trobably Mark Twain will never revisit Famous Cave, about two miles south of Hannibal, the cave where he often went as a boy, the cave which housed "Injun Joe," the cave In which "Tom Sawyer" and his loved "Becky Thatcher" were lost. "I know all about that cave," said he. "It Is clear In my mind now down to the mi nutest details, it i go to it now It win be only a sentimental Journey. I suddosq m. .. . f v s there is ouv on ming cnanged about It.

London, May 31 England has notified the Boers that terms must be accepted to-night or a final refusal of the British offer must be given. This was the Government's plan when Mr. Balfour announced ho would communicate the progress of peace negotiations to. the House of Commons Monday. If a definite announcement of peace is made, as expected. Monday night will bid fair to rival the celebration which occurred when tho relief of Mafeking was ofllelally announccd In May, 19i.

Rewards for Kitchener. For Monday afternoon every seat In the Hou"e of Commons Is already pre-empted. If the statement bf the" Government leader, A. J. Balfour, comes up to expectations, little will be done in the United Kingdom that day except exultation over the end of the war that has tried the spirit of the na tion to the uttermest. Already the w'seacres are saving that Lord Kitchener will be made an earl and receive the thanks for Parliament, accom panied by a substantial grant of money. One of the curious features of the war is the remarkable way In which Lord Kitch ener has deepened the awesome respect. kin to fear, with which the British nation regards him and his laconic reports, and his utterly Independent prosecution of the campaign In South Africa haa heightened his military reputation to such an extent that he has actually become a god to the average man In the street. Yet he Is universally admitted to have next to nothing In common with his coun trvmen or their Government Great financial magnates, whose Informa tion regarding the ccdlilons In South Afri ca has often been better than the Govern ment's, and those whose interests there ire almost as great as the Empire's, declare that Lord Kitchener is the sav or of his country.

Mr. Spoocer occupied nearly five hours of to-day's session In completing his speech begun on Thursday. His eloquence an 1 earnestness attracted tho attcrtlon of all Senators nnd of hundreds of occupants of the crowded galleries. He maintained that the United States could not leave the Philip pines "like a coward" and abandon peeip.e who had come under American protection thus surrendering them to "tyranns ard chaos." He did not believe In the admission of tho Philippines to the Union as State", but In the con luct of the islands nothing savoring of Imperialism had been suggested except for party purposes.
