0 Following lathe full text of the speech
jr;' delivered In the senate by- Senator S. U.
. ZHklns, of tills state, during the detrnto
r & the Morgan resolution recognising
1 the belligerency of the Cuban Insurrectionists.
Thursday. May 30. it Is taken
from the official stenographic report In
V the Congressional Record:
. Mr.Elklns said: Mr. President, it Is not
my purpose to detain the senate with ?
I '' discussion of the merits of the pending
resolution. I want to speak more parj
tlcularly to the motion to refer the resolution
to the committee on foreign relations,
so that It may have full consideration.
be reported upon and the facts,
i findings and conclusions of law be made
fully to appear for the information ?t
senators before they vote on this moat
[ Important and far-reaching subject.
b The Joint resolution was introduced on
the 1st day of April, and there Is not
officially before the senate one fact In
its support. There Is no report contain'
luff the evidence and the fscts whatever
before the senate that would enable
the senate to reach a conclusion.
There Is no finding of facts, as there
should be. to support the statement!* In
the resolution. There Is no inromatlon
from the foreign relations committee or
any other committee as to the effect of
the resolution, nor are there any reason*
before the senate, except the able
speeches of the senators In its behalf, to
show why It should pass.
Ordonarily any Joint resolution of moment
or any btft is referred to a committee.
What for? To have it investigated.
considered, and passed upon, and a
report made for tMe information of the
senate. We can not take out of the
treasury of the United 6tates a hundred
dollars without having the report of a
committee upon the subject. Now. her??
Is a Joint resolution whi<*h promises to
be. and perhaps is. the most Important
subject which the senate will be railed
upon to consider during the present session.
It is a great transaction taking
place in the senate of the United States.
In the presence of the country and the
whole world looking on. which wll! either
assist In the birth or a new nation or
lead to war. or possibly both, and yet it
does not have the consideration of a
committee.
It is not treated in the usual and ordinary
way that Joint resolutions snd bills
re treated In the senate. There Is
nothing to establish, prove, or support
In any way the statements set forth in
the resolution. 1 may remark Just here
that this extraordinary session of Congress
was called for one purpose only,
to look after the Interests of the country,
provide reverue for a bankrupt treasury.
and revive languishing industries.
We have trials, troubles snd difficulties
at home, the welfare of our people to
care for. and we ought not to take on
ourselves the burdens of other people.
People out of employment, hunting for
work to suDDort worthy families, need
oar care quite as much as the Cubans.
The joint resolution recite*?
i",,'That a condition of public war exists
between *lhe jrovwsment of Spain and
t?e government proclaimed and for
some time maintained by force of arms
by the people of Cuba."
Not m Public War.
Now. Mr. President, senator* are here
In'? double capacity, legislative and Judicial.
We are called upon to vote
whether this is a fact or not. and I insist
there is nothing before the senate to
prove or establish the fact that there
Is a public war in Cuba. Senators heave
t their own Information and their own
ideas on the subject; but there is nothing
before the *<>nate that Hears thi?
stamp of authority to support the statement.
If there is a public war there, we are
entitled to know, before we vote upon
he Joint resolution. All about the war.
We are entitled to know the number of
soldiers on either side. We are entitled
to know where the insurrectionary government
ha* its capital or headquarters.
We are entitled to know If battles have
ever been fought there of any moment,
and if so. where. We are entitled to
know the number of insurgent*, so an to
Judge how respectable their claims are
to be called an army. But there is not
ope word; and I challenge the senators
on the other aide advocating the immediate
passage of the Joint resolution to
show. In proper form, any fact In support
of these statements.
I mean facts officially ascertained and
determined in a proper way. Has this
resolution been referred to the state department
for report. Information, and
advice? The slate department ha* all
needed! nformatlon on the subjoct. The
usual rule of the senate Is to refer all
. v bills and resolutions to the proper de
partment for report ana suggestioni*. bo
that senators may bo advised and have
nil the fact* before them. If, as claimed,
all the facta are In favor of the Cuban
Insurgents and support this resolution.
why not bring them Into the urnate
la the ordinary way?
Mr. Chandler. Mr President, will the
aenator from We?t Virginia allow me to
answer that challenge?
Mr. Elklni*. I will be Interrupted for
that purpose.
Mr. Chandler. The senator, on the
28th day of February, 1896. last year,
voted hlmnelf. on two or three rool calls.
In support of a resolution In the exact
language of the resolution which ho has
Just read. Now. that Is something of
authority. But there were oIho before
the senator at hat time the report of
Fenator Cameron from tho committee on
foreign relatione, and the papers accompanying
the report In two documents.
Fifty-fourth ContrrfH*. second nes?i<>n.
Report No. 1160, Senate Document
Mr. Hlklns. 1 understand the senator.
Mr. Chandler. Walt a minute. Those
documents were beforr the nenator then
to Justfly his vote at that time and they
are beforo him now. When the senator
challenges the senators who 'Jealr?- to
vote upon the Joint resolution without
referring It to a committee for kottv evidence,
here 1m the evidence backed up
by his own vote one year ngo.
Mr. Elkln*. That resolution wan a
concurrent resolution and this Is a joint
resolution: one bil the force of Inn-,
and the other Is only advisory, and lh?*
senator knew it when he Interrogated
m<*. 1 tell the senator novr there J* not
a scintilla of evidence, there is not n fact
before the senate wearing the stamp of
authority, in support of the ponding resolution.
There never was a resolution
like this in the annate before. The other
resolution was quite different. This resofutfon
means a groixt <l*al more This
means the coercion, the embarrassment,
of the President of the United States In
the performance of a duty that belong
to him alone, ond compels him to ?lr>
what perhaps he may not want to do.
namely, veto the Joint resolution or npprove
It
Xothlne Official.
The distinguished senator from Ohio
(Mr. Forsker) let In a little ofTlclnl light
In the debate yesterday. How cngcr
the senate was to get thin mite of offlclnl
Information which he had. and one other
senator, as I know. Why not give
the facta to the senate and to the country?
Let me tell senators who advocate
this resolution that this question is of
tremendous importsr.cn to the whole*
country, and the facts should not r?>st
with a few senators, who are permitted
to know all about the case when others
are not. This question concerns deeply
the people of the United Htates; they are
entitled to know the facts.
I repeat with ernphasln that you have
produced nothing here In support of the
Joint resolution. Bringing out the report
on another and different resolution
passed a year ago, I hold, prove? nothing.
Court* in the trial of an ordinary
CAM would not proceed In thin wuy.
A Judgf who nad tu ptvnwur.ee judgment
or giv e a decision would require
the facts to bo presented.
It la evident the resolution la going
to pass. Why can It not be passed In
the orderly nnd dignified way? The
senate is engaged in an Important und
serious transaction. Why cannot the
resolution be referred to the foreign relations
committee, and this great committee
bring In a report Monday. Tuesday,
or Wednesday, giving all the facts,
their finding, and the law, stating us
well the rights of all parties In inter
esi ii me rrsoiuixiu ruuuiu uouh..
law? There in no disposition to deity
a vote upon this question. It lit evident
that senators arc going to vote
for the Joint resolution. Ought we not
to inform the people of the United
States and the world upon what we
based our Judgment and notion? Should
we not have recorded in the senate the
reasons that moved the senators to
vote for the resolution?
History will be made up In thin matter
after this fashion: A resolution of
five lines recognizing the belligerency
of the Insurgents of Cuba passed the
senate on such a day: no facts given;
no reasons assigned. Those who follow
us In the senate will look in vain for
something, for some reasons for this
strange precedent, this departure from
the orderly procedure of the senate in
such cases. Those who come after us
can not hear and be captivated and
fascinated by the oratory we have listened
to from the distinguished senators
who have spoken In the last two or
three days. The people are entitled to
know, and posterity is entitled to know,
and the world should know, why and
how the senate reached a conclusion
oil this subject. Called ou to vote. I
have no light or Information on this
subject that is authoritative, only
vague rumor.
So CompmrUoa.
The resolution says: "A state of public
war maintained by force for some
time, etc."
How long? First we ought to have
knowledge as to the character and duration
of the war. We should know
where the capital of the insurgents Is
situate. Where and to whom will you
sendt his resolution when It is passed?
How Is the President of the United
States to llnd the postnttlce address of
the president of the Cuban republic?
Who knows where it Is? You will have
to send General Miles with the army to
deliver this Joint resolution. You can
not find the Cuban otllcials. So far as
we know, under this resolution, there
Is no proof of their existence.
in ft\Ha hits h#4?n likened
to our civil war. Why. the Confederategovernment
had a capital. It had a
congress*. It had courts. It exercised
uuthorlty and jurisdiction through
civil and military power over a third
of the republic and a third of the inhabItants.
You always knew where to And the
Confederate army. Confederate generals.
the Confederate government. Its
president and officers.. This govern'
ment maintained Itself for four years.
Its armies and generals were as fine as
the world ever saw. and the people engaged
in the revolt against the United
States were brave, courageous. Intelligent;
nearly everything favored their
success, but the cause for which they
struggled, and notwithstanding all this,
we denied the right of European nations
to recognize their independence.
And the Cuban Insurrection is cited a*
a parallel. Why did not the distinguished
senator who drafted the resolution
say how long the war has been
maintained?for two years, or three
years, or one year, or long enough to
authorize us to believe and feel It is
an actual and public war? The resolution
goes on to say further:
"And that the United States shall
maintain a strict neutrality between
the contending powers, according tu
each all the rights of belligerents."
Ur. President, the senate ought to be
advised by the foreign relations committee
as to what these belligerent
rights are and how far and in what
way the resolution will affect or help
the Cuban insurgents: how fur it will
affect he people of the United St^te*.
and how far it will aff?*ct Ihe Spanish
government, and present our relation*
with each and all of those pedple.* We
are entitled to know this at the huml*
of the foreign relations committee and
to be advised on all these points. Then
we could vote knowingly anu perhaps
wJsely on this subject.
The question of belligerent right* is a
legal question. The senator from Ohio
differs from the distinguished senator
from Massachusetts on this subj?-et, but
if we had the report of the foreign relations
committee, matured, well digested.
fortified by authority, then we
would know, or feel we know, what the
law is In this case, as well as all the important
facts necessary to reach a conclusion.
Mr. President, we tlo not know, from
the speech of the senator from Ohio
yesterday, that there Is danger of war
If the Joint resolution passes, so far as
the United States Ik roncerned. I have
some patrotlsm lert in me. and I love
liberty, but 1 stand here as the trusleiof
a great nation, not to be moved by
my sympathies nor by pure sentiment,
nor to work myself up to a frenzy
about oppression and outrage on the
part of a people struggling for Independence
and forget the true Interests
of my country.
Sympathy and sentiment should have
no part or place in the treatment of
foreign questions. We ran only bf guided
by justice, international law, and
the Interests of our own government
j ne aisiinputsuvu wimwi *?vn? nols
(Mr. Mason), in his groat speech,
said the Spaniards taxed children Immediately
after birth and bride* at ih**
altar. Lf*t??ning to him and hi# lurid
eloquence, 1 wondered why Spain did
not tux grown-up men and women.
Mr. Mason. Very few of them grow
up.
Mr. Elklns. And he reasoned from
this unjust taxation a state of war existed
In Cuba, and therefore we must
recognize belligerency. The peroration
of the distinguished senator from Nebraska
(Mr. Thurston;, which moved
the senate, as his glowing periods always
do, Is in keeping with the line of
argument or the senator from Illinois.
He declares he loves liberty, and therefore
we must pass this resolution.
That is not the way to proceed In a
dignified transaction which may involve
this country In war and the possible expenditure
of u thousand million of dollars
of the people's money. Then* Is
danger of war; but one of the senators
favoring this resolution says. "In case
' f war, what ran Spain do?" Kvcn If
Spain Is weak and could do nothing,
we nhould proceed with caution ami
justice on our side. I will tell you what
Spain can do. She can declare war and
not Art- n gun, and It would cost this

There Is danger of war; and I Insist n
that we Mhouiil proceed ivlth caution }[
and be fortlfled with facts; that we a

front Ohio not let u* have all the d
light he ha* on the subject? He read n
a long letter of Secretary Olney and a ?
part of the reply from the Spanish mln- t
Inter. Why noth ave both of these let- b
tera In full, and nil other fact*, before
the senate? We are entitled to them, S
and the people of the United State* are t;
entitled to them. If we are not entitled
to thein. then the President of the Unl- <?
ted State* *hou!d nay we are not entl- t>
tied, and not senators. a
In my judgment, Air. Prealdent, thl* ?'
proceeding should be Initiated by the w
Rxecutive. He has the power and the
Jurisdiction under the conatttution. He n
I* In possession of al the facts and ha* r
all the Information. He ha* hi* hand ti
on the pulse. He know* every hour t'
what I* going on In Cuba. He I* as pa- II
trlotic a* any of the senators who be- /
come frenxled with patriotism and love *
of liberty. He can be trusted. I am a
willing to follow where he leads. He u
know* when this government should o
take action. Hla oath 1* a* solemn a* II

I?eave this great question with him, g
where it belong*; In hi* own way and at
the proper time he will act and net
wisely. It does *eem to me to proceed c
In thl* way la a sort of impeachment of
the wisdom and patriotism of the Pres- j,
ident of the United ninir*.
As yet he ban advised no course of action;
he has said nothing on this questlon
to iih; -no message from hlrn has
reached u* that the time has come In
his judgment for action. Responding
topopularclarnor. the senate propoaesto
pass a resolution which coerces the
President, forces him to take action be- f
fore he may deslr.- to do so. The passage
of this resolution can only embarrass
hlin and possibly bring him Into ,
conflict with Congress. He has sent
his own a?ent to Cuba. I am satisfied
he In giving this question the best and .
wisest consideration. Congress Is powerless
to control his action.
Mr. President, there Is no precedent
for this proposed action. Nothing of
the kind has ever been attempted before.
I doubt If anything like this pro- .
ceedlng has ever occurred In the hlsto- 11
ry of the government?forcing the Executive
to take action that may Involve ,
the country In war. and against his "
Judgment. We can not go on In this
way. with a conflict between the executive
and legislative branches of the
government. K
I have not had time to examine this
question. I do not belong to the foreign
committee. Senators can not
pursue all great questions coming before
the senate to proper conclusions.
Wc are charged with different duties,
an I we must rely on the great committees
of the senate. The foreign relations
committee makes no report; is
no: asked to make any.
Mr. Forsker. The resolution has
not yet been referred to the committee.
Mr. Elklns. No; and It Is ??ot intended
to be referred. That Is what I
am speaking about. It has been for a
month before the senote and not referred
to the foreign relations committee.
I a?k. in common fairness to Senators
who have to vote on this ques.i?M.
i .rb- nam* of the Decinle
of the country, who are entitled to the
confluence of rh?? senate In this ureal
transaction. Why not have u report? I ^
do nut assume to deny anything that1? v
chartred or alleged hero for or against n
the Cubans or Spain. 0
There ia nothing said about the Indlg- a
nitles perpetrated by the Insurgents; y
they ore not accused here In the sen- n
ate or the t'nlted State*. and I do not t]
know that they can be accused; but I jknow
that Irt anorhe" revolution Jn thut t;
Island General Quesada, It I* .said, shot ?
down six hundred and eighty Spanish C|
prisoner?. Nobody has tiled to bring jj
>ut such facts. It Is the cruelties of n
Spain all the time of which we hear. I t.
favor the Republican platform on the j.
subject of Cuba; I am for peace on the gl
I-land of Cuba; 1 ant for doing ample 'n
Justice to Cubi?, but 1 do not believe n
thai this resolution will reach these c
ends I think the President can and
should be trusted to do what la right, {<
and In due season he will act.
I am not here to make any charges ?
against the insurgents in Cuba; 1 am p
no: heic to excuse or to assail;but I am a
her.-. as an American senator, to say ^
that I am not advised either by the ?
executive of the t'nlted State* or by the
foreign relations committee, or by anyone
else, as to Just what is the best
course t-? pursue. I s& not against doing
Justice to Cuba and bringing to a i,
speedy termination the contest going on
In Cuba, but before I art or undertake
to say what should be done I want to
know the fact*. I
We are asked as Judge? to pronounce b
Judgment. Give us something to "pro- .|
