Such statements were monstrous, de -lared Mr. Hale. "That's what I think," interposed iMr. Mason, and again the galleries ap kSde vigorously at the quick sally. said he wouid estabiis hisstate hltI Mtb the reports of Mr. Popper, a mt renoganed as conservative in his t Mr. Mason proceeded to the statements of correspondents as to the famine and distress in Cuba. Referring to the duty of the United es said: "This government oqft to maintain that the horrible bcrer s which are now common in the and and conducted under the of warfare must be stopped. We a rightt, as a nsquto l ation. with regard for the tights of all, to look am b a war as Within any reason mostruetion of international law. lrT agm of truace has been abandoned, S rs eof war are being shot, and it Ippeist that no rule of civilised war lase is being observed." 1: .

' D they uend remounting? uis Mw Iscripti IERRILL '" to prevent further bloodshed upon this tiir Mlans. "lhould the preildent take such sc tion," declared Mr. Mason, "he would, as has been the case In every other erisis of our country, have behind him the army man the navy and above all, the people." While these men and women were starving, the senator said, the bucket shops sent up price lists. "As for me," he exclaimed. "I cannot give attention to pork prices In Illinois so long as this condition of affairs continues in Cuba. These stock jobbers tell us that war is hell. All right, In Cuba it is worse than hell. Dante, he said, pictured with unrivaled pen the the horrors of hell, but he was Incapable of depicting the terrors of life in one of the concentra do's camps. Continuing, Mr. Mason said that when the bucket shops write an explanation for the country, the day is upon us. The republican party had promised to put a stop to this condi tion of affairs and no man had a right to interdict this resolution, let him sit in the white house or elsewhere. At this point there was vociferous cheers and it required vigorous effort to secure order. Mr. Mason declared that, notwith standing the declaration of the St. Loules platform, nothing had been done; "nothing," he said, "except to pass a belligerency resolution in the senate and." he added, amid general laughter, referring evidently to speaker Reed. "it is not certain whether he will pass it on the other side." Mr. Mason declared Spain was jeal ous of our nearness to Cuba and ex pressed the opinion that there was an effort in Spain to force this country to buy Cuba. He said the Spaniards had always been hostile to the republican institutions of this country. Indeed, from the beginning of our history there had scarcely been an administration which had not been compelled to deal with the bad faith of Spain. Spain was without honor, without cash and with out credit. Her soldiers were consripts, and her captain generals either thieves, kU Weyler, or bribe givers like Blanco. He declared that the autonomy which p!in had offered to Cuba was a gold brick which Spain was trying to work off on the president. Mr. Mason ridiculed the scheme of autonomy proposed. He pointed out that the captain general could dissolve the proposed ('uban parliament and name the appropriation bills and de clare martial law "at his own sweet will" without any reference to the de sires of the Cuban people. "And yet," said Mr. Mason. "this is the glorious scheme of autonomy which is to do so much for Cuba." - He declared that President McKinley was being imposed upon until the Spanish authorities had time to mur der and bribe a few more of those to whom a local government had been promised. Mr. Mason said that he cal culated certainly not less than 500,000 persons had fallen victims to Spanish brutality and he felt that the number was not less than 600,000. S"Bhall we wait," he inquired, "un tttthe rest of them have been annihi latedr' "When we have fed the starving wo men and children." said he, "we will settle with Spain on land and sea. In the closing hours of this 19th century we shall demonstrate that there is one great nation-the greatett to the world, that is not seeking ajlQlttonal land or more territory by caqest* I have no disposition to put the ilightest aspersion upon the administration. I am a part of the aditnistration, 4pade so by the to look 2,000 miles to the westward OL our country-to Hawaii-when there is such a struggle going on in Cuba, al most at our very doors." In conclusion, after a more extended explanation of his interest in the Cuban cause, Mr. Mason said: "Around my table at home, where my boys are gath ered. I see in their faces the face of that Cuban lad of 12 who was taken out by the Spanish forces to be shot as a spy. He asked as a favor that the bandage be removed from his eyes, say ing: 'I am not afraid to die.' "There I feel that I am in the midst of Cuban boys and girls. Mr. President, if there Is to be a war. let it be a war not of our seeking, not a war in which our soldiers shall carry torches in their hands, but let it be a war either in de fense of our country or in defense of the imperishable jewels of humanity jewels more sacred than life-a war of glory and of honor." On motion of Mr. Hale the resolution was referred to the committee on for eign relations. Mr. Morgan introduced a resolution requesting the president to send to the senate copies of reports made by the consul general of the Unit ed States at Havana and other consuls of the United States in Cuba relating to the war, which have been received since the 4th of March last, and also request nlg the president to inform the senate "whether any agent of any government in Cuba has been accredited to the gov ernment or to the president of the Unit ed States with authority to negotiate a treaty of reciprocity with the United States, or any other diplomatic or com mercial agreement with the United States, and whether such has been rec ognised and received from the repre sentative of such government in Cuba." The resolution was allowed to lie on the table. A bill making Sabine pass and Port Arthur in Texas sub-ports of entry was passed. Mr. C(handler then called up the reso lutfi declaring Mr. Corbett not entitled to the seat of a senator from the state of Oregon in the United States senate, and Mr. Pettus, dem., Ala., spoke upon it. He contended that the question in volved in Mr. Corbett's case has been long since settled by the senate. The question was one of law and he ar gued that there could be no reason for further attempts at upsetting precedents and overturning the law as established. At 5 o'clock the senate adjourned.

IT DOESN'T ALARM HIM The Puniashment Is Fixed at Imprison ment for Lui-The Prisoner Trests the Result Lightly and Says e'll Get a New TriaL Chicago, Feb. 9.-Adolph L. Luetgert was to-day convicted of the murder of hli wife and sentenced to imprisonment in the penitentiary for the term of his natural life. Luetgert received the verdict with a laugh. It was 10:50 o'clock when word was sent in the court room that they had agreed upon a verdict and were waiting to bring it into court. Judge Gary., whose home is within a few blocks of the criminal court build ing, informed the jury as it passed out that he would await their pleasurt, and at any time during the night that they agreed upon a verdict he would return to the court room to receive it. As quickly as possible after the jury had sent word of an agreement, Judge tjary hastened to the court room. Tne news of a verdict had spread like light ning to the street and in a tew minutes the court room was jammed with news paper men, policemen, witnesses who bad given evidence at the trial, and curious spectators. At 11:15 Judge Gary entered the room, and at the same instant Luetgert and his guards entered through the door leading from the jail. The big prisoner was calm to all ap pearances, and did not seem nervous In any degree. He smiled at one or two friends, but after the first glance around the court room be contented himself with watching the door through which the jury must enter. They flied in, passing to the seats they have occupied during 72 days of the trial. Not one of the jurors looked toward the prisoner, who tried vainly to catch an eye of some one of the men who had determined his fate. Clerk Knopf stepped forward, took the verdict and then read, with a tremor of excitement in his voice: "We, the jury, find the defendant guilty as charged in the indictment, and fix his punishment at life impris onment." There was a hush. and all eyes turned on Luetgert to see how he would take it. He laughed, and laughed in a manner that showed' plainly that he did not think the ver dict a serious matter, comparatively speaking. The sound of the clerk's voice had not died away when Attor ney tiarmii'l wan U11 1115 LCUL WIL11 a request that the jury be polled. This was done, each juror affirming the verdict. Then he entered a motion for a new trial, which was entered and will be argued in a few days. Luet gert was led back to jail in apparently good spirits, comforted by the assur ance of his lawyers that he would get a new trial and that the state would not be able to convict him a second time. At first Luetgert refused to say any thing, his one response to questions be ing, "I won't talk about it." At length he yielded to inquiries enough to say that the verdict was a surprise to him. "I don't see how the evidence justified such a verdict. But one thing is sure, the supreme court will give me a new trial and I shall be acquitted." From the time when the prisoner was led in to hear the verdict until the bail iffs conducted him back to his cell, his face showed not one tremor or any sort of fear. He smiled repeatedly even when the verdict nas read by the clerk and shook hands with his attorney and others who gathered around him. After arriving at the Jail he retired as usual, apparently undisturbed by the verdict. The jury reached a verdict on the first ballot. They retired at 4:50 and took their first ballot at 5:10. It was unanimous for conviction. Some little time was consumed in arriving at the punishment to be inflicted, but this was settled by 8:30 and then the jurors sat around in their room. After the prisoner was removed Judge Gary expressed his thanks to the members of the jury for the patience with which they endured their long confinement and for the man ner in which they had performed their duty.

Feb. 9.-A telegram was received here to-day announcing a de cision by the circuit court of appeals at San Francisco in one of the most celebrated life insurance cases in the history of the state. E. J. Curtis, ex secretary of state, held a policy for $6,000 in the Mutual Reserve Fund Life association, but when he died he was in arrears for two and one-half years in his assessments. The company re fused to pay the policy and the admin istrator sued on the technical ground that notice of assessment was not le gal. The law of New York requiring 30 days notice was claimed to be vio lated because the notice sent the first of one month for the payment to be made the first day of the following month was one day behind, under the well-known rule of computing in such cases. Judge Beatty decided against the insurance company and the court of appeals afRrms it. This finally set tles the case, and the estate, including interest, will get $7,500. IRELAND'S DISTRESS.

The sun oif $P,I is con sidered sufficient for the presset to pay the expense of engaging an architect, advertising for bids and paying other expenses of a like nature. Jest as oon as the work is commensed and the bal ance of the 0,000 is needed, the Helenta Business Men's association will under take to raise the money. Thsee who subscribe towards this fund will re 'ceive capitol bonds In a like amount. If the lands back of the bonds prove to be In time as valuable as is glalmed and yield a revenue sufficient to pay the Interat,, those who contribute towards the 8$0,000 fund will receive a fair re turn for their investment. The following citizens subscribed the money raised to-day: Thomas Cruse. $2,000; Nick Kessler, 1,000; each of the following gave 600: Gans & Klein, Kleinschmidt Bros., F. 8. P. Lindsay, E. W. Fiske, A. M. Holter, Richard Lockey, Sanford & Evans, Parchen Drug company and R. C. Wallace; John Steinbrenner, 8200; Thomas Pursell, $100. The commission spent to-day consid ering some of the offers from architects and listening to architects who ap peared in person. Of the 187 architects heard from, quite a number were elimi nated from the eligible list because their figures were too high or too low. The commission will look into the standing of those who have not been eliminated, and in course of time select one to draw plans and perhaps to su pervise the construction of the build ing. E. C. Day, attorney for George R. Mann, the St. Louis architect who de signed the plans that were accepted by the former capitol commission, ap peared before the commission in behalf of his client. He said that Mr. Mann hoped that in awarding the contract for designing the plans or in engaging an' architect the commission would have some consideration for him. He had gone to a great expense to prepare his plans, and believed he should be afford ed an opportunity to protect himself against the loss of reputation and pres tige that would be entailed upon him if he were left out in the cold. He is ready to revise his plans to suit the re quirements of the commission, and says he can do this and still give a" very satisfactory building that can be en larged very conveniently whenever the state so desires. Mr. Mann claims he can cut down his million dollar building to $275,000 and preserve its architectural contour. The commission gave Mr. Day a respectful audience, but refrained from an ex pression of opinion. The opinion rendered by the attorney general to-day to the effect that the provision in the law preventing the em ployment of an architect not a resident of the state does not hold because of conflicting portions of the law, has simplified matters considerably. The commission adjourned' to-night for a short while in order to afford an oppor tunity to inquire into the standing of the architects who are so anxious to design the capitol. Governor Smith will call the mem hers together again just as soon as the desired information is obtained. The commission is going very slowly and seems determined to make no mistakes. The sessions have thus far been secret and the members are very wary about disclosing much of their proceedings. They will not disclose the names or whereabouts of the contractors who offer to build a 65-room building for -275,000 and take the bonds in payment. Their identity will probably remain a secret until they put in their bids. The citizens of Helena feel quite enthusias-' tic over the prospects of something be ing done by the present commission. -----·--- A Colorse Ivestsmeat. Special Dispatch to the Standard.
