THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN TTVEIiFTII YEAB. rnOENIX, ATIIZONA, TUESDAY MOBNING, FEBRUARY 25, 1902. VOL. XII. JTO. 2S3. THE PHILIPPIN PASSE 0 BY Two Democratic Members Did Not Par ticipate in a Strict Party Vote The Closing Hours of the Out a; Quarrel Between the Maryland Senators in Which Mr. Wellington Told What Unparliamentary Remarks He Would Make if He Were Outside the Chamber His Thought Was Taken for His Deed and He Was Sat Upon. Washington. Fb. 24. After eitfht licurs of tumultous debate todiiy the filiate, shortly before 7 o'clock thi? t veiling, adopted the Philippine tariff bill by a vote ot 46 to 26. a strictly p.irty vote. Messrs. Tillman and Mc Laurin, the two senators fro in fouth Carolina, who on Saturday last were d.-elared by the senate to be in con tempt because of th-ir tiht in th- chamber, were not permitted by voice or vote to participate in the proceed ings. The question as to thir right to vote precipitated a sh.irp debate lasting nearly two hours. The president pro tem. Mr. Frye. held that the two sen ators could not vote and he was sus tained by a majority o the senate. During the debate on th? Philippine bill Messrs. McComas and Wellington of Maryland became-involved in a con troversy, during the course of whica the latter declared that if McCumrir, should makj his statements outside ill.e senate chamber- he should brand I them main ions falsehoods. He was ailed to order promptly and resumed his seat amid considerable excitement. Many amendments were off -red to the Philippine bill, but ext ,-pt those offered by the committee only en:, an iiinendment restricting thf operation of ithe sedition laws tnaoi'd by the Taft . um mission, passed. The am end men r 'of Mr. Forak.T. fixing th ? rate -f duties levied upon products coming Into the L'nited States frum the Philippines at per cent ot" the Dingley rates instead of IZ per cent, aa iix?d. in the bill, was lost, but it received a large republican vote. Had the democrats voted for it as formerly it would have carried, bu; many democrats vted against it. As passed the measure provides that a i tieles ImiHjrted into the Philippine archiiHdago from the United ritates shall be required to pay the duties levied against thorn by the Philippines commission and paid upon like articles imported Into the archipeiago from lur cign countries: that articles impo: ted into the 1'nited States from the Philip pines shall pny a duty of 75 per cent of the rates fixed by the Dingley law. less any export txe- paid upon articles sent Trom the Philippine archipelago a:? r- 'iuired by the Philippines commission. .VII articles now imported free Into the t'nited States shall he hreaft'-r rx"mi' from the export duty imposed in i Iil Philippines.

THE MARYLAND Qt'AIlIIKU Inuring the debate on the Philippine tariff bill Mr. M' omas of Maryland, said ihat his colleague, Mr. Welling ton, had said that he had been given assurances by President McKinley that the United States did not propose to hold the Philippines as colonies. Mr. Wellington was evidently labor ing under excitement, and replied to some statements made during today's debate Iy his colleague. Mr. McComas. Those statements, he said, had cast a doubt upon his truth and veracity, but he insisted that Mr. M -t 'om a r recol -lection did not serve him well. IIe is.' sai 1 Mr. Wellington, "so ig norant upon this question, that he ought not ;o speak upon it. or his statements ore untrue." lie explained that w hi! 1 ir. liieComas ac om ponied him in his call upon the Into presi dent, he was not within hearing of all the conversation, and did not know what had been said. He asserted that President McKinley did not make the promises to him which he had stated previously he had made. "I believe." :;uid he. "that the president meant at that time to carry out tho?e promises, but because of sinister and malign in fluenees he was forced to abandon them -and to drift, to drift. "I do not stand alone in this mat ter, und my colleague in so assailing my veracity assails that of another senator. The same promises were made to him as were made to me. He is on the Moor now. declared Mr. Welling ton, pounding his d"sk emphatically, "or was a few minutes ago. I was not mistaken." He demanded of his col-l-apue that there should be no equiv ocation upon bis part, and de lured that Mr. Motv.:s, refraining -from making charges against bl.n in the Pint lainTaign. had v.aie 1 until he con PI hide behind the rules of th o:i;tte before cuusin:; he imputation of such a charge upon him. A Tier referring to the visit to Presi dent M Kinl-y by o'ncni! Agnus of I'Hltimoro. and l ims If. Mr. Welling ton, speaking with deliberation and emphasis, sa id : "I desire to ! within the rules of the senate. I would ray his. If my t ol!e-:gue at any time will reiterate outside this chand-r hit he said in this chamber, then I will tll him that he is not correct, and tell him what 1 will not say in this chamber, because of renatorial dignity, because of par liamentary rules, that he utters a cowardly and malicious falsehood.' Mr. Frye. the president pro tern, ordered Mr. Wellington to lake bis seat. The Maryland senator complied. Mr. Hoar made a point of order that Mr. Wellington was out of oider in using the language he had used. Mr. Fry- sustained the point of order, and the Incident seemed to close at that point. Mr. Hanna said that with the per ioral ('ifferen es of the two senators from Maryland he had nothing to do, but when statements w?re made involv ing th" action of the president whose lips now were closed In death, he felt it was tamo for him to soeak. "The statement was made." said h, 'that a protnif was given by our dead presi dent with resoect to the disposition of the Philippine islands that was not kept. 1 resent that statement in the name of t lit American people." (Ap plause.) He was willing to admit that there might have been misunderstanding, but If anv refutation of the charge w ere needed, the character ot President MeKinl-y ought to. afford a sufficient refutation of it. It was not possible to cntert'tin such a charge, and In the name of th" American people he en tered a protest against it. Senator Proctor rejorted favorably the house oleomargarine bill. He an nounced that a report In opposition would be submit lel by the minority. The committee a men led the bill by striking out the section relating to renovated butter and the proviso which authorized the manufacture of oI"o niargarine under any regulation which a state might provide. THE HOl'SK. Washington. Feb. 24.

Washington. Feb. 24. In consequence of the senate's action. President Roosevelt today cancelled Senator Till man's name from the dinner guests and as a result the fighting statesman was not present when Prince Henry dined at the White House, but the place was filled by Senator Martin of Virginia, who is the ranking senator next to Mr. Tillman. There was a sensational sequence to the decision of the president to elim inate Senator Tillman from the list of dinner guests. The president sent for Senator t Toe k re 11 of Missouri and asked him. a5 a friend and democratic col league of Mr. Tillman, to suggest to the latter the propriety of withdrawing acceptance of the dinner Invitation. The president explained his attitude in the matter and said that in view of the contempt proceedings, Mr. Tillman's presence was not only an affront to the senate, but a discourtesy to Prince Henry. Cockrell accepted the com mis rion and later telephoned the president that Mr. Tillman absolutely refused to withdraw his acceptance in response to the president's suggestion. The presi dent immediately cancelled the Invita tion In a note dispatched directly to Mr. Tillman shortly before noon today.

Washington, Feb. 24. The visit , of Prince Henry and his suite to the cap ltol this afternoon must have been not only a gratifying experience to the royal visitor on tcount of the warm and flattering reception he received both in the house and senate, and of the opportunity it afforded him of meeting personally the leaders of both houses, but It must have been an extremely in teresting experience as well. The prince not only saw the houses of the Ameri can parliament at work, but in the senate he witnessed one of those rare and Intensely dramatic moments which come in that body occasionally at the conclusion of a great debate. The dinner given Prince Henry by President Roosevelt at the White House tonight closed the honors be stowed on the royal visitor by official Washington today. The affair was on an elaborate scale ad brought together a 11101 c'Mnp-uiohed company. It was an assemblage such as rarely if ever before gathered in the White House. To accommodate the large number of guests the dinner table was set In the east room, the decora toins of which were on the most magnificent scale ever attempted. THE FIRST IMPRESSION Of the Admiral, Prince Henry, Was Favorable. Washington, Feb. 24. Prince Henry of Prussia has paid his first visit to Washington, with which he is highly pleased. His meeting with the presi dent and the members of the adminis tration was marked for Its extreme cor diality. President Roosevelt called on th:? prince at his hotel and the prince called at the White House in the after noon. All this was done In a most diplomatic manner, yet there was a vein of friendliness throughout the pro ceedings. The prince talked freely to the president and In return received a hearty welcome from the nation's chief executive. After dinner at the executive man sion, which was a most elaborate affair and was attended by the prince, his suite and the diplomatic con, the royal guest departed for New York on a special Pennsylvania train to attend the launching of the emperor's yacht. The prince and his suite arrived by a special train over the Pennsylvania railroad at 10:20 a. m. During the early hours of the forenoon the party bad met with hearty ovations at Baltimore and other places along the route. It was his royal highness' first taste of American railway travel and he ap peared to enjoy the exierienee very much. His admiration for the high sliced and punctuality of the train and mission to the bank extended down Fort street for almost a :iock. Presi dent Livingstone addressed them from the steps of the bank and said, that while the bank would now close, it would be open at 9 o'clock tomorrow morning, and every depositor would be paid in full. It Is said that a Polish depositor at the Jefferson Avenue branch saw a sign on the door on Saturday an nouncing that the hauk was closed he- j cause of Its being Washington's birth- oay ana a legal iioiiuay. He is said t 1 have spread the report that the bank had been closed, and thereby fright ened the depositors at the branch. The news of the run there gradually spread down town and started a run on the bank Itself. Help was immediately offered by the other local banks. It was declined, however, the dime bank having plenty of funds. The Evans Loan and Investment Go.
