Four Brothers' Reunion-
It was a most agreeable suprise to
T. and Jerry Culham who live near
Rhinehart, when their brothers, John
Culham ofTuronto, Canada, and i.
Culham. of Detroit. Mich., called at
their homes Wednesday. The broth
ers had not been together in the past
quarter of a century, and notwith
standing the fact they are all over
J5 years old they were as pleased at
meeting as they would have been if
they were in their boyhood days
again. The brothers are prosperous
either in business or farming.
The visitors are delighted with
Kansas and expressed a desire to lo
cate In the state. They say the coun
try is much different from what they
expected to see, and that they have
never seen its equal. They will be
at the homes of their brothers for a
week or ten days and so pleated are
they with the country tbat they are
going to travel about the state some
to see more of it.

Washington, May 24. A temperate
and carefully prepared speech was
delivered in the senate yesterday on
the Philippine bill by Senator Du
bois, of Idaho. He confined himself
almost entirely to a discussion of the
commercial and industrial aspects of
the Philippine question, his purpose
being to show that it would be
disadvantage to the people of thi
country to retain the islands. What
ever of profit there might be in them.
he said, would accrue to a few cap
italists, who, by their development
of the resources of the archipelago
through cheap labor, would come
into competition with the agriculture
ists and manufacturers of the United
States in the markets of the world,
Thu government's activity In the
Philippines also would serve
arouse China from her lethargy and,
once aroused, the dragon would de
four the trade of the world.
An earnest and forcible reply
Senator Dubois was made by Senator
Beveridge, of Indiana, who contend'
ed that the development of China's
resources would be of advantage In
trade and commerce to the United
States, as the Industrial development
of other nations had been.
After the passage of a bill provid
ing for the appointment of James
W. long, on the retired list of the
army, as a captain of infantry, the
senate went into executive session
and at 6:40 adjourned until Monday.
Senator Turner introduced a bill
for the amendment of the Chinese
exclusion act recently passed. The
amendment provides for the ellmina.
tion from the first section of the
act the words "not Inconsistent with
treaty obligations." A fear has been
expressed that this provision is too
general and under It Chinese might
find their way into the United States
throughout other countries which
fty our ''treajy obligations"' would
allow Chinese to come in.
The house devoted the day to prl-
nte pension bills and to a few other
minor measures. Mr. Loud, of Call
fornia, criticised the Bpeciul pension
legislation ns a disgrace and drew
emphatic responses from Messrs. Sul-
loway, of New Hampshire; Sulzer, of
IVew York, and Miers, of Indiuna. In
all 103 private pension bills were
Mr Gaines, of Tennessee, hnd read
the appeal of the governor of Tennes
see for relief for the widows and
children of the men buried In the re
cent mine disaster in Tennessee.
Mr. Stephens, of Texas, introduced
a resolution .that is directly aimed
at the tenTler df a monument of Fred
erick the Great, to the United States.
It sets forth that the United States
should not accept from any foreign
nation or erect in any public place
any statue of nny king, emperor,
prince or potentate who has ruled
or la now ruling any ration by the
supposed divine right of kings. The
resolution further sets forth tbat
the acceptance of such a statue by
this government would be a repudia
tion of Its basic principles as enun
ciated in the bill of rights und con
stitution, an insult to the memories
of our revolutionary fathers an ad
mission that one man may govern a
nation without the consent of the
governed and after his death have
his statue erected In our republic
and the blessings of the divine right
cf kings to rule thereby approved.
The bouse at 4:15 p. m. adjourned
to Monday.
