THE SCRANTON TT.IBUNE-FRlDAY MORNING. DECEMBER 11, 1890.
SENATOR CULLOM'S PLEA FOR CUBA An Earnest Appeal In (be Interest of Humanity. SAYS THAT CUBA IS LOST TO SPAIN A Precedent Not Necessary in the Present Casc--Sptiiu the Robber Nation of Todny as in the Vast. The Blot I'pou the Went Indie a Menace to the I'nited States. Washington. Pec. 10. The Independ ence of Cuba and the recognition of the InaurKi'iits us a regularly organized government had two advocates in tne senate today in the persons of Sena tors Oullom, of Illinois, and Call, of Florida. Mr. Cullom prefaced his speech with the Introduction of a Joint resolution declaring that "the extinction of Span- SltELBT M. CULLOM. .P C3 lsh title, and the termination of Span ish control in the Islands at the Rate way of the gulf of Mexico are neces sary to the welfare of those Islunds and the people of the United States. Mr. Cullom passed In rapid review the prominent facts In Spanlsn history for the last four or five centuries, con tinuing suid: I protest that a people with such a hlftorv and such an education can have no just claim to a purtielisillon In the con trol of any territorial possession on this hemisphere. There may be no warrant In International law for any Interference between a government and Its subjects, provided that government belongs to the family of nations or is recognized as one of the powers of the earth. Still, does not the heart of humanity beat in sympathy with the poor souls apparently forgotten by the .Master and left to bear the burdens of cruel and relentless oppression? Is there no way, no light, no hope'.' Must tli brutality of might alone detine the of fense and mete out the penalty, with no human power to whom Intercession may be made? Oh. Spain! oh, Spain, when shall thy day be fullllled. Was there no loyal Spaniard who would and could ami I all these centuries stay the hand of death or raise the sword of justice while there, was time to save. Spain continues to be what she always has been a robber na tion. I speak now of the nation ami not of her people. Some of the best and mi ldest names of the ages come to us from Spain, where, unhappily, too many of them met their sad and melancholy fates. It we wait for precedent we shall wait forever. If a precedent is needed we shall make one. The present situation cannot continue. This war of extermination must slop. Cl'BA IA1ST TO SI'AI.V. Cuba today Is lost to Spain. The public proclamation of. Spanish defeat may i:ot have been olllclally and definitely an nounced, but In truth and fact the sub mission of Cuba will never again be yield, eel as of old. The blood on her people spilled upon her soil will yield a growth of lad.'. Jiendcnt citizenship consecrated to liberty. This age is not an uge of retrogression. The world today Is not wedded to bar barism in order to perpetuate tyranny or relieve tottering dynasties. This country will never consent to the transformation of Cuba Into a slave pen for the holding in servitude of the ruptured patriots and Insurgents who are lighting fur the dear est rights of men. We will not permit that island, a land which has the brightest possibilities for a people of Intelligence und enterprise, to be made the abiding place of death and destruction. She lies too near our land of freedom to remain the military prison of the most cruel and un relenting polity on earth. I believe tt to tie the duly of the I'nited States to use the great power attaching to the nation to declare and to maintain as u prerogative 01 rignt, ucionging generally to republi canism and specifically to this republic that no chnrnel house of ruin shall lie continued In the West Indian waters, where waves break at our very front gate, nny longer than the time It shall require to break It up. And if the duty of sup prrssing this damning Idot, erasing It for. ever from sight shall fall alone upon the United States, so be It. Have we fallen so low as to have for gotten the sacrilloes which men of genius and character jind honor made In behalf of this country In its day of trouble? Have we forgotten and enshrouded the glorious memory of Ltifuyctte? Have we turned to the wall the pictures of Pulaski, cf Steuben, of IleKalb and others long since in glory? These men cast their lives and their fortunes at our feet that we might succeed. Hut we shall not stand alone In the warfare which may follow In behalf of common humanity. Nation after na tion will make Joint cause with us In such a struggle and when we have succeeded and shall have made Into law the princi ple, and mai') Into history the fact, every other country worth naming will regret Its mistake in not participating In the hu mane work. EFFORT CANNOT FAIL. The effort cannot fall. We shall not wage any warfare for the acquisition of territory for ourselves. We shall not claim Cuba as a reward for saving her from the slaughter, but we will not sea that fair Island turned again to the mer cies of wild beasts and vultures of war whose only stimulus Is gain. Cuba llbre free Cuba Is the reward, and what a glorious reward will that be. If other means fall we may consider the propriety of a fair purchase of Cuba. It Is not that we want the territory, but we mean thnt the trouble shall meet a Just settlement and conclusion. Let the end come nml come quickly. Let the bloodshed cease ana let freedom and humanity be glorified. Mr. Call, who followed Mr. Cullom contented himself with a brief dlscus Blve statement. The bill to restrict 1m- migration was taken up as the unfin ished business a motion by Mr. Gibson, of Maryland, to postpone Its considera tion till the first Monday in January having been defeated by a vote of 13 to 37. Various amendments to the text of the bill were offered or suggested, but no action was taken on any of them, al though they were discussed a couple of nours, and at 3.55 p. m., the senate ad journed until Monday. DISCUSSION IN THE HOUSE. The house today Indulged In Its first political discussion, sarcastic and hu morous In Its nature. It was provoked by the consideration of a bill amending the law prohibiting alien ownership of lands in the territories so as to permit aliens to acquire possession under fore. closure of mortgage and hold the land for ten years, which period they must dispose of It. Mr. Hepburn (Hepubli can, Iowa), asked by what right a delegate from the territories, sought to change a law in accordance with the platform the Inhabitants had approved by their votes at the last election. A breezy discussion ensued In which the ethics of Populism were considered. taking a wide range, and so conducted as to afford considerable amusement to the members. The territorial delegates urged the passage of the bill as a mat ter of Justice to their people, who were now rf'.'privrd of the power to receive Investments of forelsn capital, but the house 0 to 7 refused to pass the bill to a third reading. Under call of committees bills were passed prohibiting the sale of liquor In the capitol buildint, and protecting the rlR'nU of dinmatic authors and muskul composers in their productions. RAILWAY DISCRIMINATION. Small Manufacturers and Producers Are at n Disadvantage. Harrlsburg. Pa., Dec. 10. From a re port Just sent out by Major I. 15. Iirown, of the State Hallway bureau, It is learn ed that the most favorable conditions with respect to the convenience of trav eler and shipper are found here In our own stute. In the United States there were In ISM, 20 locomotives per 100 miles of road, while during the Fame year In Pennsylvania there were 41 lo comotives per 100 miles of road. In the I'nited Stutes there were 19 passenger and 6WS frelcht cars per 100 miks of rmd. and In Pennsylvania ther r.re ?5 passenger and 1.T7S freight cars In ser vice per 100 miles of road. While there has been a falling off in the facilities for frelsht shipment In the United States, there has been a steady Increaw In this state where in 1894 there veto 309,397 freight tars; in 1S95. KSK.fiWJ, and during the year covered by this re port 336,1171 : in Pennsylvania in IM'4 there were 6.G70 passengers cars in ser vice; In 1S95, 6,785, and the past year, 6.7.S2. Major Hrnwn deprecates the baneful results which How from the growing use of shippers cars, results which aie not alone prejudicial to the interests of the railway stockholders. Ho says: If there be such a thing as "the interests of the favored few to the Injury of the masses," It probably exists In an Inten sified form by a manufacturer or producer having his own cars in which to Fhip his productions to market. He is enabled to put his productions in the market rapidly and realise quickly from any advance ment of prices, while his less fortunate competitor who has to depend upon such facilities as the railways furnish him, be. Ing subject possibly at times to the ca price of the local representative of the companv, as well as to the Inability of the company to furnish him either the num ber of cars desired or at the time the cars may he wanted. No student can pasi, from o study of this feature of the railway problem without being convinced that the use of shippers cars In the transportation of commodities furnishes the most proline source of discrimination that confronts those roncerned In securing equitable fa. clllties In transportation. CIVIL SERVICE REFORM. Annual Meeting of the National League at Philadelphia. Philadelphia. Dec. 10. The annual meeting of the National Civil Service Reform league begun here today in the Hotel Walton and will conclude to morrow night, when a banquet will lie tendered the visiting delegutes by the Pennsylvania association.

Hon. Carl Schurz, of New York, the presi dent, will deliver his annual address tonight at a meeting to be held In Mu sical Fund hall. A public meeting was held this afternoon at the Hotel Wal ton, at which various papers were read. The papers read were: "The Post ofllce us Party Spoils." liy Klchard Henry Dana, of Huston; "Civil Service lleform in Philadelphia," by Charles ltlchardson, vice-president of the Mu nicipal league of Philadelphia; "The New System In New York," by Hon.

ZULUS ARE AGAIN ACTIVE. They Burn n Uritisli Settlement and Kill the Inhabitants. Capetown, Dec. 10. A dispatch from Blantyre, Uritlsh South Africa, dated Oct. 2.1, says that three British columns have been sent against the Angonl Zu lus, who have Invaded the southwest of Nyassa land, burned a Hritish mis sion station and killed the Inhabitants of a number of villages. When the advices left Hlantyre It was feared that the town Would be at tacked by the. Zulus who overwhelm ingly outnumber the Uritish.

Business at the Stock Exchange was quiet, th8 transac tions footing up only 117.0U0 shares. Dur ing the early trading the market was ehuracterlztd by strength. The advan"e In prices, while general, was. confined to nartow limits. In the afternoon trading th? market developed weakness on the fears of un aggressive action by the United States senate on the Cuban ques tion and un advance In the posted rates or sterling. ChicuHO Qua fell 14. The An thruciters were weaker for Heading and Jersey Central. The Grangers were firm early In the day, the poor statement of the St. Paul for the tlrst week of Decem ber falling to exert any lnuence. Near the close, however, these issues were henvy in sympathy with the general list. Mis souri pacific was week and declined to the lowest price for some time. Sugar also displayed weakness and sold down l. Speculation closed weak In tone. Net changes show losses of U to 2!i per cent. Manhattan was an exception und gained ',4 per cent, on the day.
