A Committee of the Grand Army
Calls on the President.
Con rerout e of Ceniai KDp.rvl.or4 Held at
Washington—Meeting of Kerenls of
Smithsonian Institution Un«.
Brook. S.te. the President.
Washington, Jan. 25.—The com
mander-in-ehief and national pension
committee of the Grand Army of the
Republic called on the president yes
terday and presented a plan for the
establishment of a court of appeals
in pension cases to sit in Washington
and hear cases of appeal from the de
cisions of the pension bureau. These
appeals heretofore have been heard
by a board composed of clerks in the
interior department, detailed by the
secretary of the interior for this duty.
It is believed by the committee that
an independent judicial tribunal,
made up of judges of high character
and standing in the legal profession,
brought together from different parts
of the eountrj’ and sitting in Wash
ington with well-defined jurisdiction
and powers, like the United States
circuit court of appeals or the court
of claims, would remove in a large
measure the dissatisfaction felt by a
large class of people with the system
which has prevailed for many years.
The president received the sug
gestions of the committee with favor
and promised to give his careful con
sideration to the draft of a bill which
the committee in due time will pre
sent to him.
Surveys of Our How Colonies.
Washington, Jan. 25. —In reply to a
resolution of, the senate, the secre
tary of the interior has sent to that,
nou’y an estimate for topographical
and geological surveys of Cuba,
Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the Philip
pines. The report shows that there
is great necessity for this work, ow
ing to the imperfect maps and differ
ent data on hand, most of which is of
Spanish origin. The surveys of Ha
waii are much more satisfactory. The
geological, work proposed to be done,
it is said, will promote agricultural
conditions in many instances and
show’ whether or not the Philippines
contain gold or other valuable miner
als in paying quantities. The most
difficult part of the work will be
found in the Philippines, where the
topographical survey under the pres
ent plans’ will extend over 12 or 15
years. It is recommended that the
work be placed under the supervision
of the director of the geological sur
vey. The estimates for the surveys
are as follows, using the employes of
the geological survey for the work:
Puerto Rico, $16,000; Hawaii, $22,000;
Philippines, $50,000, and Cuba, $36,000.
Conference of Cen«u* Supervisor.
Washington, Jan. 25.—A meeting
was held yesterday at the census bu
reau of enumeration supervisors of
24 of the largest cities of the coun
try. Assistant IMrector Wines made
an address explaining the purpose of
the conference. It was suggested that
the large enumeration districts be
sub-divided and placed in charge of
minor supervisors who shall daily ex
amine the returns made by enumer
ators. Heretofore these returns have
been made directly to the supervisor
in charge of the entire district. 1 his
and similar subjects will be discussed
at the present meeting which .will
continue several days. The session

Xew Haven, Jan. 25. —Win Jen
nings llrj aii arrived in .New Ilaven
at 2:15 j>. in. yesterday and was
driven to the city hull, where a re
ception was held. After a brief rest,
Mr. Bryan repaired to Music hall,
where fully 2,000 people awaited his
coining. Several hundred more
crowded into the aisles after he ar
rived. Ilis appearance was the sig-
I na l for a Wildly enthusiastic demon
j strati on. Mr. Bryan paved the wa y
hastily for his speech by remarking
that he had so little time, scarcely
an hour, in which to say all that he
wished to present that he would
plunge at once into a discussion of
the “three great leading questions
of the day, namely, trusts, money and
imperialism.” Which of them is par
amount depends upon the point of
view of the individual, and he said
“personally I do not care to spec
ify.” He believed to ussert that the
money question as a political issue
is dead is folly. Folly for the rea
son that it vitally concerns all men,
and because they are thinking of it,
no matter what their station in ldfe.
Taking up the subject of trusts, Mr.
Bryan said: “The constitution of
the l nited States gives congress all
the power needed to kill trusts. They
are a monopoly and are capable of
being outlawed. As remedies under
the constitution, I w’ould demand
that congress, before granting a cor
poration the power to do business
outside the state in which it is or
ganized, should stipulate as a condi
tion that there must be no water In
the stock. • Squeeze out the water
and you have gone a long way toward
killing trusts.”
Mr. Bryan concluded his speech by
dealing with the question of impe
rialism. He said: “There are three
arguments usually advanced in de
fense of imperialism. The first is
that there is no money in it; second,
God is in it, a mere religious argument
about the destiny of our nation, and
third, the political argument that we
are in it and can’t get out. As to the
first argument I would not take all
the trade in the universe if it had
to be purchased by the loss of a sin
gle American life. When I hear the
prophets speaking of the will of God,
I want to ask them where they get
their credentials, io *’-*-’*
ginnenf, who got us into it? It
ought to be remembered that imperi
alism will impose on us the necessity
of an army big enough to make our
flag feared but not loved.”
The (inlUnt ( ommander of the Gloucester

« ith a Sword and Sliver Service.
Washington, Jan. 25.—Commander

do Editorial association has ad
journed and has stirred all w’estern

paper. The resolutions adopted are
broad and far-reaching. It pledges

tion any member or senator in con
gress who does not favor the immedi
ate repeal of the duties men
tioned. To the end that all newspa

by, of the Fort Peck Indian reserva
tion, who has arrived at Helena,
brings word of a shooting affray at

and Nolan Armstrong, cowboys, ter
rorized the town. Deputy Sheriff El
der attempted to arrest them but they
scorned his talk about respecting the
law- and turned upon him. He shot

Would Restore Hanging: In Kaneae.
Topeka, Kan., Jan. 25.—Gov. Stan

mend to the legislature that the
crimes act, fixing the punishment for
murder, be amended so that the jury
shall decide that question, and the
jury, having fixed the punishment,
the governor’s only duty shall be to
exeente its judgment. This would
restore in Kansas capital punishment
for murder, which the present law
practically abolishes.

Washington, Jan. 25.—The second
day’s debate in the house upon the
Roberts case was less dramatic than
that of Tuesday. The galleries were
less‘tleftfoVr/ti'Jkth butNhe ladies were
pastor, Rev. Dr. Bristol, was in the
executive gallery the greater portion
of the afternoon, listening to the ar
guments. Mr. Roberts was not pres
ent during the day. Had he been he
would have heard the most scathing
excoriation of the Mormons ever de
livered upon the floor of the house.
Mr. Landis, of Indiana, the young or
ator who distinguished himself dur
ing the last congress in an oratori
cal duel with Mr. Johnson, of his
state, won new laurels yesterday. He
charged that Utah had been admitted
to the union as a result of a Mormon
conspiracy and reviewed the history
of the apostles of the church whom
he charged with living in open and
flagrant violation of statute against
polygamy, to show that they had
basely broken their pledge to the gov
ernment. The other speakers yester
day were: Messrs. Powers (republi
can), of Vermont, and Meiers (demo
crat), of Indiana, for the majority res
olutions; Messrs. Snodgrass (demo
crat), of Tennessee, and Wilson (sil
ver republican), of Idaho, for the mi
nority resolutions; Mr. Lacey (repub
lican), of lowa, for his proposition to
expel without swearing in, and Mr.
Crumpaeker (republican), of Indiana,
for exclusion by a two-thirds major
ity. The speeches yesterday greatly
strengthened the majority resolu
tions, which seemed in danger of
falling after Mr. Littlefield’s speech
Tuesday, and Chairman Tayler was
confident last night that they would
be adopted when the house votes this
The hearing on the Hawaiian bill
was continued yesterday before tht
house committee on territories. Mr.
Edward Kahliss, of Honolulu, spoke in
opposition to it. on the gTound that
the property qualification would work
the disfranchisement of the na
tives. In this connection, he severe
ly arraigned the Dole administration
and asserted that $ll,OOO of United
States funds was being used to defray
the expenses of those coming here
for the government to secure legisla
tion against the natives. Mr. Alfred
S. Hartwell, the special agent of the
government of Hawaii, contradicted
the statement, but Mr. Kahliss did
not withdraw it. He asserted that
the present administration of Hawaii
was unfit to rule the natives and
that the latter should have the fos
tering care of this government.
The house committee on agricul
ture agreed on a favorable report on

Brief Seaalon of the Senate.
Washington, Jan. 23.—Routine bus
iness occupied the attention of the
senate yesterday in a brief session.
The resolution offered Tuesday by
Senator Pettigrew, of South Dakota,
calling upon the president for infor
mation regarding the treaty entered
into with the sultan of Sulu was
passed after Senator PettigTew had
made an attack upon the administra
tion for entering into an agreement
which, he said, authorized slavery. An
extended debate was precipitated by
a conference report on the census ad
ministrative bill but the census com
mittee gained its point and the meas
