THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC AN
PHOENIX, ARIZONA, TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 3, 1901. TWELFTH YEAR. VOL. XII. NO. 199. i vi if i' NEW CONGRESS The Opening of the Fifty Seventh Yesterday NO EVENTFUL INCIDENT The Swearing in of Senators A Sl;ght Jangle in the House Over The Adoption of Bales- There Were More flowers Than Usual but They Arrived too Late to Hake a Display- Washington, Dec. 2. The opening of the first session of the Fifty-seventh congress this morning drew to the cap itol a great throng of spectators eager to witness t- scene of animation which marks the annual reassembling of our national law makers. The galleries of both the house of representatives and the senate were packed. A profusion -of floral of ferings, quite unusual in quantity, va riety and beauty, transformed the halls into veritable flower shows. Almost every member of congress was the re cipient of these evidences of regard for friends, and the atmosphere of the chambers was heavy with the odor of the rare plants and blossoms. THE HOUSE. Washington, Dec. 2. The opening day of the first session of the Fifty-seventa congress in the house cf representa tives furnished a spectacle that de lighted The crowded galleries. Tbe or ganization of the house was accom plished according to time honored prec edents. Speaker Henderson was sworn in by General Bingham after delivering a very graceful speech in recognition of the honor bestowed upon him. He in turn administered the oath to the members-elect. The usual committees were appointed to Inform the president and senate that the house was organized and ready to do business. A committee of three, consisting of Messrs. Payne, Bingham and Richard son was appointed to join a similar committee of the senate and wait upon the president and inform him that con gress was ready to receive any com munication he might have to make. The rules of the last house were adopt ed, after a slight jar and then the bi ennial seat drawing occurred. This latter ceremony was robbed of much of interest today by the fact that under a new arrangement of the seats there are more than enough to go round and those whose names are drawn last do not suffer as they did on former oc casions. The flower show, which is, a great feature of the opening day, was not as imposing as usual. More flowers than ever before were sent to members, but after the seat drawing the house ad journed before a third of them were brought into the halL THE SENATE. An hour before noon both the pub lic and private galleries were thronged with spectators, every available inch of standing room being occupied. The senators assembled slowly. Mr. Kean of New Jersey was the first senator to appear in the chamber. He was fol lowed by Senators Tillman and Hoar. PINEY WOODS. Healtf ul. But Not Always Curative. .- To go to the plney woods is a help, but if one carries along the bad habit of food and drink that have caused sickness the piney woods will not pro duce a recovery. Coffee drinking caused blindness In a Virginia gentleman, and his remark able experience is worth reading: "I have been a coffee drinker since my earliest remembrance. If I missed cof fee at a meal It brought on headache. This should have ehown me that I was a victim to a drug habit. Finally, wakeful, restless nights came on. After dinner I was always drowsy and after sleeping would waken fctupid and mor bid and felt as though I had been drugged, and when this feeling wore off nervousness and restlessness would set In until I drugged myself with cof fee again. "At last my eyesight began t fail. Some of the best optical specialists agreed that I had an affliction of the optic nerve, and after two or three years treatment my eyes slowly lost their power and I became almost sight less. "I was advised to go to a pine woods near the sea in a most Isolated place. This I did and Jived there for two years without any visible benefit. I gave up all hope of recovery until last spring a friend expressed the belief that the cof fee I drank was the cause of all my trouble. He had been a slave to it end had been unable to find relief until he quit and took up Postum Food Coffee. "His experience startled me and I de cided to try the change, although I had but little faith In its merits. My first cup of Postum proved delicious and was a great surprise. It was evidently well made. I had not the slightest trouble In leaving off coffee, for the Postum filled Its place perfectly. "During the past six months I have gained In flesh, my sallow complexion 'has become clear, and my eyesight gradually Improved until now I am able to read and write. My mind is once more clear and active and I no longer suffer from sleepless, nervous spells. You can Imagine I feel grateful for my restoration." W. - Harold Fen ton, Brighton, Va, The venerable Senator Vest of Missouri j was in his Beat before the senate was called to order. He was accorded a most cordial reception by his col leagues. By noon practically every senator in the city had arrived In the chamber. Many made no attempt to take their seats because of the wealth of tloral offerings which fairly filled the deEk3 and aisles. Precisely at noon Senator Fry of Maine, president pro tern, rapped to or der. The blind chaplain, Mr. Milburn, delivered the invocation. The creden tials of Dietrich of Nebraska. Millard of Nebraska. Kittredge of South Da kota and Wigson of Montana were pre sented and they were sworn in by the president. Senators Hale and Morgan were named as a committee to join a similar committee from the house to notify President Itoosevelt that the congress was In session. A recess was taken until 2 o'clock, but no report of the organization having been received at that time. Mr. Gamble of South Dakota formally announced the death of Sen ator Kyle. The usual resolution was I iFui-i ru. ue senate aujournea out or respect. THE FIRST BILLS. Washington, Dec. 2. It was estimat ed by the officials of the house that over 3,000 bills had been introduced before 12 o'clock today. There was much rivalry for the honor of having bill No. I. no les than fifteen members having asked for this precedence. The indica tions are that the bill of Mr. McCleary, restricting the sale of oleomargarine, will be so designated when the records are made up. The bills took a wld-j range. Three Pacific cable bills by Repre sentatives Sherman of New York, Cor liss of Michigan and Jones of Washing ton gave varying phases of this project, Mr. Jones proposing a northern route via Puget sound, with an appropriation of S8.0o0.000, and Mrs. Corliss proposing a government bill, while Mr. Sherman offered a plan allowing private cor porations in the enterprise. Among other measures introduced were the following: By Mr. Sulzer of New York Protest ing against the conduct of the war in South Africa. By Mr. Thayer of Massachusetts ani Mr. Cromwell of Ohio Removing duty on hides. By Mr. Cousins of Iowa To repeal bankruptcy laws. tiy Mr. Flynn of Oklahoma Granting statehood to Oklahoma. By Mr. Brown low of Tennessee Pro viding for a department of commerce, labor and manufactures; also amend ing the constitution ro as to define as saults on the president and vice presi dents and members of the cabinet and justices, giving congress power to im pose penalties. By Mr. Jones of Washington For a commission to Investigate Japanese im migration. Br. Mr. Cushman of Washington For the election of United States sen ators by popular vote. By Mr. Rodney of New Mexico Ad mitting New Mexico to statehood. By Mr. Cushman o Washington Prohibiting the location of mining claims In Alaska by power of attorney. Ey Mr. Curtis of Kansas For the punishment of persons assaulting or killing the president. By Mr. Newlands of Nevada For the reclamation of lands by the use of all moneys received from the sale of pub lic lands in the arid and semi-arid states. BIGGER COMMITTEES. Washington, Dec. 2.

PERMANENCE OF THEE0ESE Secretary Wilson's Eulogy of Him t Chicago. Chicago. Dec. 2. The International , Live Stock exposition was formally opened here tonight before an appreci ative throng, that crowded the amphi theater. Mayor Harrison, Secretary of 'Agriculture Wilson and Governor Yate3 spoke. A parade of prize winning horses and a concert preceded the speech mak ing. Mayor Harrison delivered the ad- ! dress of welcome. I Secretary Wilson was greeted wilh loud applause. His remarks were large ly on the importance of the cattle busi ness In the United States. He said that while the catt!e exports from this coun- try were worth $8,000,000, the great markft was at home, "among our own ' people and under our own flag." "The horse, the speaker said, "was with us tonight and he will be with us through the ages when the automobile ' and the bicycle are In the junk pile, j No man ever rode a bicycle who had I owned a horse; no man would own an ' automobile who understood the beau i ti3 of the horse. The audience was still applauding when Governor Yates arose and bade , the visitors to the show and to the con l ventlon of the National Live Stock as sociation welcome to the state. BERKMAN SEEKS LIBERTY. Pittsburg. Pa., Dec. 2. The appeal of Anarchist -Alexander Berkman came up for argument In the superior court today. Berkman is the anrachist who attracted world-wide notoriety in lSi2 by his attempt to assassinate H. C, Frick of the Carnegie Steel company. He seeks release from the penitentiary on the ground that the court erred In finding him guilty under six different charges. He declares In his petition that he should have been convicted only on the one Indictment charging felonious assault. In which case the penalty would have been ten years in stead of twenty-one. It is understood that Mr. Frick will not oppose the ap peal M. - J ASK FREE MARKET Cubans Importunate for Im mediate Action Cannot Understand Why the Presi dent and Secretary of State Can Not at Once Give What They Want. Washington, Dec. 2. Cuba promises to be an Important suppliant at the feet of congress and of the president. She will not be denied. The United States is her "natural" market, and she wants the market gates kept open and free to all of her products. If not entirely free, then the lowest possible tariff rates. The war with Spain changed a great many things; among them, tiie point of view of the Cubans. Before they re volted against their mother country, and during the revolt, their products were subject to tariff duties in Spain which was never leniently - disposed in such matters, even levying "octroi" duties at the imaginary walls of every imaginary town. Cubans had to bear also the burden of tariff duties unon their sugar, tobacco, molasses and I other products when they were shipped into the United States. The high rates of duly and the numerous "octroi" taxe.i still hold In the land of the Casta net, and of "manana," and of Weyler; likewise the duties that this country has found necessary to levy upon cer tain products of Cuba and other trop ical countries to protect similar prod ucts of the farmers . of the United States. But the Cubans are demanding that, since the United States has delivered them out of the hands of Spain, she should go to the full length of magna nimity and remove the tariff on sugar, tobacco and molasses, and make sweep ing reductions all along the tariff line. If a prohibitive tariff were levied on logic, the Cubans could have been ad mitted at any port of the United States. They have come to Washington repeat edly with the most impossible proposi tions. Today another delegation, head ed by Franc isco Uatnba, president of the General Society of Merchants and Business men of the island of Cuba, and presented a petition to the presi dent, to the secretary of war and ta other officials to whom It may concern as well as to the senate and house of representatives, to reduce at once the duties on certain Cuban products. In vain has Mr. Roosevelt, the sec retary of war and Governor Wood as sured the Cubans that the war depart ment, which is temporarily in the sad dle in Cuba, has no authority to reduce! duties on articles coming into this country; that the president has no such authority, and that congress, even, cannot do so except In regard to an independent government. Bur this is logic, and the Cubans do not want logic. They ins if t upon the reduction of duties. Molasses and raw sugar up to No. 18, Dutch ' standard, they want admitted free. They plead for heavy reductions on tobacco In all forms, and on alcohol, spirits and rum (by-products of sugar cane), and ask that "no internal rev enue tax or Impost annulling the con cessions above solicited be established in the United Slates." The most remarkable portion of the petition is. however, the statement that the remedies asked for must be applied at once. The economic condition is such, the delegates sy, as to admit of no delay. To the assertion that no one has authority to act, they reply, act at once. To the argument that only con gress can remove tariff duties, they say, remove them immediately. To the. protestation of the president that even congress cannot act. save with respect to an independent country and an es tablished government, they say, let somebody remove the duties Instantly. Cuba's situation Is critical almost hopeless. The soil has not yet been won back to its former fertility; the farmers thoFe of them who survived the long struggle for liberty have not been able to till the old farms wtth former success. The crops of sugar and tobacco have fallen behind, far be hind, those of former years. Iwlll be several years yet before the island can possibly produce its accustomed yield of any of its great harvests. In the meanwhile, no matter what the tariff duties at American ports may be, the Cubans must suffer. They will suffer the more the higher these tariff duties are; but the inexor able argument of the tariff is that It Is levied to protect the home and not the outside world. But Cuba want:) to share the "protection of it, without the necessary qualification member ship In the American union. Cuba will not be put off with the as surance that the Unltei States cannot do anything In the matter until after the Cuban government has been or ganized, so that we may treat with an independent nation. If the war de partment can reduce or remove duties on imports into Cuba now, they say. why can It not remove or reduce duties on exports from Cuba? They won't understand the-answer, that it cannot. They are fast In the belief that some branch of the government either the president, or the war department, or the governor of Cuba, or the senators, or the representatives, or some two or three of them, or half of them, or all of . them, before congress meets, or after, , or before Cuba becomes Cuba, or after j now, at once, and off-hand can re j move and reduce duties, with the stroke of a pen. The president could only assure the Cubans that he thought they would -find his message to congress satisfactory reading in respect to Cuba. The secre tary of war repeated that he would gve the petition his careful consldera I tion, but could not act at this time. Congress has not yet been heard from. I It is a sad situation, and one with which Mr. Roosevelt wishes that he or some branch of the government might deal, but his hands are tied by the con stitution an Instrument with which the Cubans are busy tying their own hands. But Cuba will continue to present her plea to congress and to the president because the present crop is ready for export, and delay means the loss of millions. A BIG SHIPPING DEAL. New York, Dec. 2. According to Lon don advices a rumor Is current In Liverpool to the effect that another Im mense shipping deal Involving the sum of 8,000.000' Is under negotiation. American Interests are.

CHARLESTON EXPOSITION The Machinery Set in Motion President Roosevelt, by Charleston, S. C, Dec. 2. From the White house President Roosevelt start ed the electric spark which communi cated the energy to the shafting of the cotton palace and Industrial buildings, and amid the tumultuous shouts oi' thousands, the music of a score of bands and the waving of flags, the wheels began to turn. The South Car- ianH in expecting some startling an olina and West Indian exposition was a nouncements ere long regarding the realty and the dedicatory exercises! were over. An event of such magnitude could not have been inaugurated under more favorable auspices, from trie ma ment the grand pageant formed in the city until it dispersed at the grounds, concluding with the speecn-making and music, everything moved with admir able smoothness, amid the music of the bands, the cheers of the great throngs and the animated scenes in and about the tilcturesque structures composing the exposition. ' The crowds were even greater than the enthusiastic promoters had expect ed. The various structures on the ground were crowded early In the day and the shaded avenues and river front swarmed with men, women and children. Toward noon the scene wa? one of greatest activity. Everything was in motion. The buildings glittered in gay decorations and everything throughout the 160 acres presented an animated appearance. It was 10 o'clock when the parade completed its formation and moved to ward the exposition grounds. It was under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Charles Morris. U. S. A,., and comprised detachments of United States marines, several companies of infantry and the various local military and semi-military organizations. Following the arrivauof the proces sion at the grounds the formal dedica tory ceremonies were held In the ex position auditorium. The oration of the day was delivered by Senator Chaunt-ey M. Depew or New York. Other Bpeakers were President F. G. Wagner of the exposition. Governor McSweenoy and Mayor J. Adger Smyth. The musical portion of the pro gram was furnished by the First Ar tillery band. Tonight the day's pro gram concludes with an elaborate pyro technic display. The South Carolina Interstate and West Indian exposition does not. like other great fairs, commemorate the anniversary of some past event, but. on the other hand. Is designed to open new industries and commerce. Its spe- ( ciflc purpose is to promote commercial j relations with the West Indian islands. L On account of its peculiar southern at- mosphere the exposition enjoys certain original features Impossible at other great shows of its kind. The exposi tion grounds cover an area of 160 acres, including a large frontage on the Ash ley river. The principal buildings are the cotton, agricultural, minerals and forestry, administration, auditorium. woman's, negro and transportation and. machinery. The building scheme Is X southern In style, and instead of road- vays and asphalted streets leading f from one building to another, there are 1 winding paths under spreading live oak trees. 'Jr The most imposing building is the X cotton palace, which covers 50,009 square feet. The live stock exhibit. . covering fifteen acres, is also' an im-' portant part of the exposition. Several ! of the West Indian islands have spe- ; cial buirJings, as have also Maryland,'. Pennsylvania, Illinois and several other .-j states. In the way of lighter enter- 't talnment there Is a Midway which compares favorably with similar feat- y ures seen at previous expositions.

Dreyfuss, Robinson and their brother magnates of the National league are in session discussing plans for the coming season.

Dev. 2.-r-The American Base ball league is holding its adjourned an nual meeting today at the Auditorium hotel. St. Louis having been taken into the fold, little other than routine busi ness remains to be transacted, unless the talked of plans to capture New York have secretly advanced to a stage which would warrant the magnates in announcing that that city will be added to the circuit the coming season. This is not considered likely, however. WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. Washington. Dec. 2.

INSULAR GASES Court Opinion in "Dia mond Rings" Gases PHILIPPINE STATUS Held to be American Territory for Tariff Purposes -The Export Tax on Goods Sent to Porto Rico Con strued to be Hot a burden bnt a Benefit to the Porto Bicans The Opinion Was Secured by a Bare Majority. Washington, Dec. 2. Opinions ver rendered in the supreme court today In the last two of the insular test cases. One of them is known as the "four teen diamond ring case," involving the relationship of the United States to the Philippine islands from a tariff point of view, and the other is what is known as the '"Dooley case No. 2," involving the constitutionality of the collection of duty on goods shipped from New York to Porto Rico.. In the former case the court, through Chief Justice Fuller, held that the dia mond rings brought in from the Philip pines, and over which the case arose, should be exempt from duty under the Paris treaty of peace, as that treaty made the Philippines American terri tory. The decision in the Philippines case followed closely that of the first Porto Rican case In the last term. In the Dooley case, decided today, it was held that the duty collected on goods from New York to Porto Rico was permissible, but that it was really a tax for the benefit of the . Porta RIcans themselves, rather than an ex port duty, as was claimed by the mer chants who antagonized the govern ment. In ''both cases there were dissenting opinions concurred in by four of the nine Justice of the court. It is gener ally believed that the finding in the Philippines case will lead to early efforts to secure legislation for the regulation of our commercial relations with those Islands. As the Porto Rican opinion sustains the constitutionality of the Foraker act. no such necessity will arise with reference to Porto Rico. Justice Gray, White, Shiras and Mc Kenna united in dissenting from the court's opinion In the Philippines case, but they filed no written statement be yond a mere note in which they said they "Dissented for reasons stated in their opinions in the cases of De Lima vs. Bidwell, Dooley vs. -the United States and Downs vs. Bidwell In the last term of the court." THE PUBLIC DEBT. Washington. Dec. 2.
