Minneapolis* April 9.—The crowd

Cuban Reciprocity Question is Taken
up on the Floor of the House
of Representatives.
Several Points of Order and Par­
liamentary Questions Ruled Against
by the Speaker.
Standing Vote on Motion to Begin Con­

Washington, April 9.—The debatt
upon the Cuban reciprocity bill openet
in the house during the day. There
was muph activity among the ltbad^en
oh both sides before thet house con
vened in anticipation of the coming
battle and when the speaker called the
house to order at noon the attendance
on the floor was unusually large. Aft
er the approval of the journal some
routine business was transacted.
Mr. Payne, chairman of the ways
and means, committee and leader
Mr. Robertson (La.) attempted tc
propose a proposition as to the length
Of general debate, but Mr. Payne cut
him off with a demand for the "reg
ular order."
The first test of strength came upon
the motion to go, into committee of the
Opposition Strong-Voiced.
A laughable incident occurred on
the division. On the viva voce vote
the chorus of "hoes" was louder than
the "ayes," and the speaker announced
that the "noes" seemed to have it. He
lifted his gavel and looked at Mr
Payne, the .majority leader, expecting
him to demand a division, but Mr
Payne made no move.
"The noes have it," announces the
speaker. Simultaneously, Mr. Mc
Clellan (N. Y.) saved the day by shout­
ing, "Division, I demand a division.'
The result of the rising vote was
watched with great interest. It result
ed: Ayes, "107 hays, 107. A dozen
Republicans demanded tellers and Mr
Fordney (Rep., Mich.) and Mr. Under
wood (Dem., Ala.) demanded the ayes
and nays. The roll call followed.
Many of those who had voted
against the motion on the rising vote
changed their attitude when they were
placed on record and the friends of re
ciprocity won ah easy victory, the mo
tion being carried, 177 to 80.
Accordingly the house went intc
committee of the whole, Mr. Sherman
of New York in the chair. It was de­
cided that the time should be equally
divided for and against the bill. Mr
Payne then began his argument. In
opening he pointed out the peculiar re
lations existing between the United
States gnd Cuba growing out of the
Spanisb 'w'ar, to which he remarked in
cidentally he had opposed, and the lim
itations placed upon Cuban independ­
ence by the Piatt amendment ajid the
obligations which it placed upon the
United States. It was our duty, he
argued, to see that the new govern
ment was started under the best aus
pices and to do all in our power tc
ipake the experiment successful. Mr
Payne said that in time United States
exports to Cuba would amount tc
8200,000,000. While he did not want
Cuba annexed, he believed that in
time she wotild be a part of the Unit
ed States.
^an Francisco Business Men and the
Exclusion Bill.
''Washington, April 9.—At the open
lng of the senate session the president
pro tem., Mr. Fryie, laid before that
body a telegram signed by Claus
Spreckels and about 20 other business
meh of San Francisco protesting
against the passage of the Chinese ex
elusion bill in its present form. The
signers of the telegram declared that
the exclusion of legitimate Chinese
merchants, according to the provision
of the measure, would be an act oi
gross Injustice.
When the exclusion bill was taken
up Mr. Cullom (Ills.) addressed the
senate in favor of the measure.
Mr. Patterson (Colo.) followed Mr
Cullom in a strong appeal for the en
actment of the present Chinese exclu­
sion law and refuted the arguments
that had been made by those who said
that a treaty was sufficient protection
Mr. Perkins (Cal.) also made a vig­
orous* speech in favor of the adoption
the majority, then moved that the
house go into committee of the whole
for the consideration of the Cubar
reciprocity bill.
The battle began immediately. Mr
Tawney (M!inn.), as a parliamentary
inquiry, demanded to know upon whal
theory the bill was privileged.
Mr. Payne replied that the bill was
one affecting revenue, and the speakei
sustained that view. Thereupon Mr
Rob.ertson (La.) raised the point of or.
der that the bill did not come withiL
the purview of the rule. His conten
tion was that the bill proposed to au
thorize reciprocal trade relations with
Cuba—that it was not a bill to raise
or reduce revenue and not amenable
as such.
The speaker held that,' under a long
line of precedents, the bill was priv
Mr. Newlands (Nev.) attempted tc
Becure a ruling of the chair .upon the
question of whether amendments ef
fectirig the general reduction of the
tariff would be in order, but the speak
er declined to rule upon a question'not
before the house.
Reports of Inspectors Tell of a Ead
State of Affairs.
Washington, April 9.—Secretary
Root has sent an answer to the house
resolution, adopted on March 15, call­
ing on him for all facts that have come
to his knowledge as to the conduct of
the transport service- between San
Francisco and the Philippine islands.
The answer includes the reports ot
Inspector General Chamberlain and
Colonel Mails. The reports of the va­
rious officers, enclosed by Secretary
Root, covers several hundred pages.
Major General Young, in transmitting
the report of Lieutenant Colonel Cham­
berlain, suM&its an analysis of the re­
port showing no adequate supervision
to any feature of the fitting out of
transports for a long time after the
service was inaugurated, and later the
efforts to reform the system.
General Young specifies the case of
"an inexperienced man, who knew
nothing about'paints, being placed to
supervise painting, in a business where
the painting bill of a single firm in two
years and two months amounted to
In other respects it is stated the re­
port shows that work was given out
and supplies for general use (such as
the fitting up "of cabins) were pur­
chased without due regard habitually
to the protection of the government's
On' that branch of the investigation
covering cost of articles, etc., General
Young's summing up of the Chamber'
lain report says that in one case,
where the bill was $105,318, the work
is pronounced "generally unsatisfac­
tory. charges excessive and material
Prices paid for material were often
strikingly in excess of the then cur­
rent market prices of the same articles
of like quality and supplies were pur­
chased in open market without ad­
vertising. It is further stated in Gen­
eral Young's summary that "prefer­
ence seems to have been shown spe­
cial firms to the point of ordering from
them articles out of their lines of busi­
ness, these firms at the same time
charging exorbitant prices to the ex­
tent in a few instances of 100 per. cent
in excess of ruling market rates."
Testifies ,He Was Instructed to "Kill
and Burn."
Manila, April 9.—Major Littleton W.
T. Waller of the marine corps, at the
day's session of the courtmartial by
which he is being tried on the charge
of executing natives of Samar without
trial, testified in rebuttal of the evi­
dence given by General Jacob H.
Smith, who commanded the American
troops in the Island of Samar. The
major said General Smith instructed
him to kill and burn said that the
more he killed and burned the better
pleased he would be that it was no
time to take prisoners and that he was
to make Samar a howling wilderness.
Major Waller asked General Smith to
define the age limit for killing and he
replied: "Everything over 10." The
major repeated this order to Captain
Pprter, saying: "We do not make war
in that way on old men, women and

Hiram I. Bearss and Lieutenant Frank

fied. corroboratively.
Tama Reservation Cleansed to Avoid
Spread of Disease.
Des Moines, April 9.—The Indian
reservation on which the Musquakies
of Iowa live has received the greatest
cleaning-up ever experienced. The
cost of this spring housecleaning in
Tama county will be between $6,000
and $7,000.
The cleaning of the Tama reserva­
tion was under the direction or Presi­
dent Linn of the sjate board of health,
who was assisted by Agent Malin, who.
represents the United States, and by
the local authorities at Tama, Mon­
tour and Toledo.
Every Indian was compelled to de­
stroy all his clothing and to submit to
a bath and fumigation. This was a
unique process, entirely new and novel
to the Musquakies. Some of them ob­
jected, but all were compelled to yield.
Cecil Rhodes Remains Arrive at Bulu
wayo, Matabeleland.
Buluwayo, Matabeleland, April 9.—
The funeral train conveying the body
of Cecil Rhodes, which left Cape Town
April 3, arrived here, during the day.
The town was draped in mourning and
practically the entire population as­
sembled at the railway station and ac­
companied the coffin to the drill hall,
where it is now lying in state. Masses
of wreaths and other floral emblems
are banked about the bier. The body
will rest here air night when it will
be takein to the Rhodes farm, in the
Matoppo district, whence it will be
conveyed April 10 to the hill called
"the View of the World." The relig­
ious services there will sychronize
with a memorial service at St. Paul's
cathedral, London.
American Beef Combine Causing Un­
easiness in England.
London, April 9.—Some uneasiness
has been aroused here by the an
nouncement that the American meat
combination is stopping cattle ship­
ments. The Liverpool Post says:
"When the Chicago beef trust's
plans are fully developed, the British­
er will have to face a considerable in­
crease in the price of meat, as the
Americans propose to control-the dis­
patch of meat cargoes."

Makes Tour of the Harbor in Revenue
Cutter Passing Around Historic
Fort Sumter.
Charleston, S. C., April 9.—-Tbe pres
ident's train reached Charleston at
9:30 a. m., on time. The party did not
come into the city but left the train
seven miles out, where trolley cars
were waiting to convey them to the
naval station to take the revenue cut­
ter for a tour of the harbor. The pres­
ident's immediate party went directly
to the naval station, where they were
joined in a few moments by members
of the reception committee and invit­
ed guests from the city. A guard of
30 militiainen was stationed about the
approaches to the train and stood at
"present arms" as the president land­
ed. At the naval station 50 men of the
militia were posted, maintaining pick­
et lines about the reservation, and
none was allowed within.the lines ex­
cept such as had special passes. The
president and his party were shown
about the station and were then con­
ducted to the pier, where the revenue
cutter Algonquin was in waiting. As
the president set foot on the deck the
flag of the commander-in-chief of the
army and navy was raised and the
jackies were paraded while a salute of
21 guns was fired. After the commit­
tee and guests had gone aboard the
Algonquin started on a tour of the har­
bor. Passing down Cooper river a fine
view of the city and the opening of the
bay was presented.
Passing into the bay the Algonquin
came abreast of the cruiser Cincinnati,
whose decks were manned with all
her crew, as well as the Topeka and
Lancaster. As the president's vessel
passed each ship a salute of 21 guns
was fired. Off the fortifications of
Sullivans island the Algonquin was
greeted with the same welcome and"
she passed out to the ocean with gay
streamers amid a chorus of guns.
Just a little run to the sea and the Al­
gonquin turned about and re-entered
the harbor, passing around historic
Fort Sumter.' While steaming up t£e
bay luncheon was served in the cabin
of the cutter.- A short run was made
up the Ashley river, giving a view of
the city's western water front, and
then the ship was headed back from
the landing where a troop of the
Charleston Light Dragoons was in
waiting to escort the president to his
headquarters at the St. John hotel.
All the arrangements were excellent
and there was not a break in the pro­
gramme. The president seemed in
high spirits and entered with keen zest
into all the features of the occasion.
In the evening a banquet given by
the city in honor of the president was
held at the Charleston hotel. While
this was in progress Mrs. Roosevelt
received at the St. John. Five hun­
dred invitations were issued to this
function. No men were present.
Colonel Crowder Investigating Brit­
ish Camp at New Orleans.
Chicago, April 9.—Colonel E. H.
Crowder of Chicago, connected with
the adjutant general's department and
now assigned to the department of the
Lakes, according to The Tribune's
New Orleans correspondent, is the of­
ficer sent to Port Chalmette, La., to in­
quire into conditions at the military
camp reported to be under manage­
ment of the British governmsnf at that
point. Colonel Crowder, The Tribune
says, is at New Orleans, awaiting in­
structions from the war department.
Colonel Crowder has already briefly
inquired into conditions at Chalmette.
He half found, says The Tribune's cor­
respondent, that the Port Chalmette
railroad people claim to have full con­
trol of the land occupied by the pens
and stables. Colonel Crowder investi­
gated thei court records pertaining to
the suit brought by General Pearson
in a recent effort to prevent the sailing
of two transports. The court set aside
the objections. It is found that nearly
all the documents in the case were for­
warded to Washington as a part of
Governor Heard's report to the secre­
tary of state.
It is estimated that there are now
1,000 horses and 400 mules penned up
at Port Chalmette. At the wharves
three transports are waiting to clear
for Cape Town the moment the ani­
mal cargoes are aboard. A "commit­
tee" of British army officers and vet­
erinarians are busy passing on the
four-footed recruits that come in daily
from all points of the Western graz­
ing districts.
Famous Mining Litigation Ends by De­
cision of the Court.
Council Bluffs, la., April 9.—Judge
Green has announced that his decision
in the famous Doylei-Burns mining suit
would be against the defendant Burns,
and that he would overrule the motion
for a new trial, and has instructed at­
torneys to prepare papers for filing
judgment of the $446,000.
He at the same time will refuse the
petition for additional judgment of
fPWei tor by Doyle.
M. O,
,, "J '--.N" ,*
Testifies Before the Senate Philippine
Washington, April 9.—General Mac
Arthur during the day continued his
testimony concerning conditions in the
Philippine archipelago before the sen­
ate committee on the Philippines. His
discussion at the beginning of the ses­
sion was devoted to a review of the
conditions which led up to the present
State of mind of Filipinos. He said
that long before the advent of the
Americans the .germs of democracy
had been planted and that these had
originated in the agitations in Spain
of a century ago which had been re­
flected in the Spanish colonies. He
also described the conditions in the
archipelago at the time of the Ameri­
can occupation, saying that at that
time the Filipinos were in a vindictive
and resentful mood toward Spain with
a general yearning for liberty. Taking
these pyschological conditions into
consideration and also giving due heed
to the character of the people he had
felt when he assumed command of the
islands that there was to be found the
most fertile soil for the planting of the
best type of republican institutions.
General MacArthur then took up
and discussed economic conditions in
the archipelago, saying that they are
the finest group of islands in the world,
occupying a strategic position abso­
lutely unexcelled.
He believed, he added, that when the
Filipino people come to realize the
mission of the American people among
them and that they were a chosen peo­
ple for the dissemination of American
ideas, they would rally to this in­
spiring thought and cheerfully follow
and support the American flag.
Continuing,General MacArthur grew,
eloquent in describing the mission of
the Americans. Our presence in the
islands, he said, was to his mind a pro­
cess of spontaneous evolution and, he
added, that he believed that the per­
manent occupancy was a necessary
consequence, the logical sequence, of
our national prosperity, to doubt which
was to doubt the wisdom of our Con
Exclusion Laws Re-Enacted and Ex­
tended to Philippines.
Washington, April 9.—The house has
passed the Chinese exclusion bill, after
Incorporating in it several amend­
ments, which increased the drastic
character of the measure. The princi­
pal one not only excludes Chinese by
birth and descent, but all Chinese of
mixed blood.
The chief struggle was over an
amendment to prohibit the employ­
ment of Chinese sailors on American
ships. An amendment covering this
proposition was at first ruled out on a
point of order, but subsequently was
modified to evade the ruling, and was
adopted, 100 to 74.
As passed, the bill practically re
enacts all the existing exclusion laws
and incorporates with them the exist­
ing treaty regulations. It extends
these exclusion laws to the Philippines
and the other possessions of tbe
United States, and forbids Chinese la­
borers in our colonial possessions com­
ing into this country.
Iowa Legislature Passes a Second
Merger Act.
Des Moines, April 9—The bill
known as the Hubbard railroad act.
companion of the Molsberry bill, pass­
ed the house in practically the same
form as it passed the senate. The
impression prevails that the governor
will veto it, as it is generally claimed
to be intended as an aid to the Hill
Harriman railway merger, a feature
which induced the governor's veto of
the Molsberry bill. The Hubbard bill
authorizes any line incorporated un­
der Iowa laws, regardless of location,
to exercise the same privileges as
lines operating in Iowa. These priv­
ileges are enumerated in the substi­
tute Molsberry bill.
Montana Lands to Be Used in Irriga­
tion Scheme.
Washington, April 9.—The president
has directed that upwards of 70 town­
ships in Northern Montana be with­
drawn from public entry for use in the

St. Mary's canal and Milk river project.
By another executive order thrae

involved should be added to the Black

Shipment of Arms to China Brought to
Attention of Officials.
Sari Francisco, April 9.—The cus­
tomhouse authorities have been noti
fied to be on the alert to discover the
shipment of arms trom this country to
the insurgents in China. Collector:
Stratton has received a letter from O.
A. Spalding, acting secretary of the
treasury, stating that in the protocol
signed on Sept. 7, 1901, the importa­
tion of arms and munitions of war is
prohibited. The letter states:
"It is reported that insurrectionary
movements are now flagrant in the
southern provinces of China and that
the insurgents are deriving supplies
of arms and warlike materials from
abroad. The department directs that
you do whatever may be practicable
and proper under existing laws in the
way of restricting the exportations of
arms and warlike materials to China
for use against a nation with which the
United States is at peace and to the
injury of foreigners (including citi­
zens of the United States) found in
"Should the fact tuat consignments
of arms arid hostile materials have
been shipped from United States ports
to China be ascertained by you or your
officers you will please report such
facts without delay to this depart­
ment." -ij?

Papal Missions Will Attend Both the
Coming Events.
Rome. April 9.—In spite of the op­
position of Cardinal Rampolla, the
papal secretary of state, the pope has
decided to send important special mis­
sions both to the coronation of King
Edward and to the festivities in Spain
attendant upon the enthroning of
King Alfonso. The cardinal's opposi­
tion to the sending of the mission to
England was based on the fact that
the British parliament did not change
the anti-Catholic formula of the ac­
cession oath and Mgr. Merri Delval,
whom the pontiff designated to be
chief of the mission, refused to so
while the present wording of the oath
is maintained. Nevertheless the mis­
sion will be sent and will probably ar­
rive in London a fe$r hours after the
religious ceremony. TJtis will be a
repetition of the diplomatic manoeuver
carried out at the coronation of Czar
Nicholas II at Moscow.
