CRUCIBLE OF DEBATE
Clows Pretty Hot in tho Senats Over the Proceedings on the Isthmus. HOAH TACKLES CUE. ACTIOU And A?ks That All the Facta Ba Given to the S:nat Before the Treaty I Acted Upon Go. nan Follows in Similar View Aldrich and For- . aker in Defense. "Washington. Dec. 13. The spnate Warthe scene of a most iuipcrtatt de bäte on the Isthmian canal question as affected by the president's mos nition of the Indererxlence of e re public of Panama. The discussion be gan with a ..speech by Hoar on his resolution of inquiry. Hoar conüned his remarks to his resolution, and they were carefully written out and read from manuscript. lie criticised In sharp terms the conduct of this coun try, and compared the conduct of the United States on the isthmus to a io- Jieeman who would manacle and hold a person about to be attached for rob bery, acd who would then Insist on having the spoils of the theft deluded to himself. What Hoar Want to Know. lie said no man in the country de sired more eagerly than himself to support the administration and act with his party associates. He also was favorable to the isthmian canal and was desirous that the present pres ident of the United States should build the jrreat waterway. Hut he wrs even mrre anxious that the canal should be built "without taint or suspicion of national dishonor." "What we want to know," he said, "did this govern ment, knowing that a revolution was about to take place, so arrange mat ters that the revolution,' whether peace able or otherwise, should be permitted to po on without interruption, and whether our national authorities took measures to prevent Colombia from stoi ping It?" Plead for Ail the Fart. Hoar ?a Id it was no justification of our course to say Colombia had failed to ratify the treaty for the construc tion of the Tanama can.il; Had the United States Itself not failed to ratify many treaties? In conclusion he phad ed for all the facts and asked that they be sent to the senate through the usual official channels. "We are en titled to know the whole story," he said, "before taking action on the canal treaty, and we are entitled to know It officially, not through some In dividual senator, who may color It with his own views, or through the unof ficial utterances of the representatives of some other governmeDtJL GORjf AX SOUNDS A KEYNOTE Bis Remarks Attract Attention as a Lead er of the Democracy. Gorman took the floor as .soon as Iloar had concluded, and there was from te start evident interest in wcrtt he might say. He said that Democrat ic senators generally are as favorable to the construction of the canal as are V.epublicans. He congratulated the country on the possession of a sen ator like Hoar. He next referred to the extension of the executive influ ence, saying that this Influence had been ertended until "the senate had become practically the agent of the executive." He criticised the selec tion by the president of commissioners from the senate to negotiate treaties a3 a reprehensible practice, and de clared that the Associated Press se cured its suggestions as to informa tion alout events from the adminis tration. He also criticised executive interfer ence in stet? politics, saying: "The president with doubtful propriety tele graphs his instructions to state con ventions as to their actions." Cut none of these transgressions could be compared, he declared, to the action of the executive In connection with the affair in Tanama. "It is," he said, "the most flagrant act of transgression that has ever taken place in the his tory of the country, and It should be resisted without regard to party.' Spooner, who was sitting just across the center aisle of the senate chamber, on the other side of which Gorman stood, suggested that a two-thirds vote would )eneessary to ratify the treaty, to which Gorman assented, and then proceeded toy criticise the speecii made by Assistant Secretary Loomis before the Quill club in New York a few nights ago. He referred to the fact that the Panama treaty was at that time a secret document so far as of ficial action was concerned. Heretofore treaties similarly situ ated had been regarded as sacred by executive officials, and he did not be lieve that any secretary or assistant secretary should of his own motion or at the suggestion of "higher au thority" violate this secrecy until the Injunction of secrecy should be re moved by the senate itself. MElfTIONS LOO 31 IS BT NAME Kef er to the President as a "Second Napo leon, Indeed. He hnd not so far mentioned Loom Is by name, but he did at this point and said Loomis had discussed the Panama situation at a banquet at which perhaps many were excited by wine, and had "given information which the senate had not had from the administration or from any ether source. lie did not tell the country all the facts, but he made the broad asser tion that the president was a bold and great man, who had the courage and the patriotism to land marines and zelze a part of the territory of the re public of Colombia, which we were under contract - to guarantee to that country. This, in the light of the facts before us, Is nothing iess than usurpa tion." Gorman then discussed the president as a "second Napoleon, which title had, he sail, been assigned hin by U"f: . . "A second, Napoleon, fr V' he exclaimed. "Ilad it come to this that the Unitd States must have a Napoleon to share Its destinies and to distort the presidential office from its proper functions." Here Aldrich interrupted Gorman with a question as to whether It was the "purpose of the reconcentruted Democracy to defeat tie treaty." Gor man Faid that it was not his practice to treat questions of international scoim as a party man. and he believed that by the union of all the forces in clined io rrctctt. the bcsMnterests of the country its honor could te saved. He agreed, he eakl. that the canal must be built, but in the light of all the facts at present known it was een more important that the Integrity of the Ameiican people should be pre served. Wonr the senator go a step far ther," asked Aldrich. "and state wheth er it is the purpose to reject the treaty?" Gorman I say to the senator from Rhode Island that if the case stands as it is now. with only the informa tion the administration has furnished .us to this hour, then we consider it a most objectionable transaction." He then criticised the president for not jrolng to Nicaragua when Colombia re Jected the treaty, end then coming back to Aldrlch's inquiry, said: "Open your books and give us the informa tion. If you fall to do it in this case; if the president will give us no fur ther information than he has present ed, speaking for myself, I cannot sus tain Lim." FOXAKER ATTACKS IIOAH'S SPEECH Declares It an Attack on the Country and I Much Shocked. When Gorman had concluded For- aker began an arraignment of Hoar's position, saying that he had felt no great surprise when the attack on the president had been made on the Demo cratic side of the chamber, but that he had been shocked when the sena tor from Massachusetts made the char acter of speech he did. An attack had been made net on the president alone, but upon the country, and that when the eyes: of the world were on the United States. After lie Jiad been speaking awhile Hojir asked permission to state his position again. s he said Fora k er was misrepresenting him. Fcraker at. first refused, but finally consented, and Hoar aid: "My point is this: I say that the president has said to the pub lic and to the senate that he disclaims certain conduct as unworthy-of him. and I called attention to the fact that the documents which he sent In failed to make that clear by not distinctly disclaiming that he. or the administra tion, had notice of that revolution, or that our forces had prevented the law ful government from 'anticipating that outbreak: that I believed from my knowledge of the president that his statement was actually true, and there fore I asked him to supply the lacking Information by stating on what ground the administration proceeds In taking the step that Is all." Foraker then declared he had not misrepresented a word Hoar had said: "What I said I understood to be the effect of his speech that from the telegrams read he inferred the con clusion that there was direct contra diction of the statement of the presi dent of the United States. Now. the president has stated there was no con ference, no injTigue, and yet the sen ator from Massachusetts, reading these telegrams, demands that the president shall submit proof to him that he was telling the truth when he made the statement that he had not connived." Foraker then proceeded to review briefly the history of the uprising on the isthmus, stating that the condition there was common knowledge to all newspaper readers. 'Tanama had a right if she saw fit. to go into re bellion. Weeks before she declared her indepehience it became known that she would take that step not officially but to every one who studied that situation and knew what human nature would do under the cir cumstances." The administration at Washington, he said, was not unmindful of the sit uation, "and the president took the steps indicated by the telegrams and from which the senator from Massa chusetts derives such conclusions." After another colloquy with Hoar the senator from Ohio concluded by stat ing that there was no real ground for criticism of the course of the admin istration In the Tanama matter JUMPED AT CONCLUSIONS Did the Posses" In Louisiana When They Hunted This Negro to Lynch Him.

REPORT KITS SMITH That of Special Counsel Conrad and Bonaparte on the Postal Scandals. ALSO ROASTS PERRY S. HEATH Ex-Postmaster General Is Very Sharp ly Condemned. Secretary of War Testifies in Defense of General Wood Senate Passes the Cuban Treaty Bill. "Washington. Dec. 17. The report of Conrad and Iionaparte on their exam ination of the Bristow report in the postoflice scandal indorse that report generally, but non-concurs as to cer tain passages, and recommends prompt publication of the report. It suggests that -the Bristow report should note how gravely the statute of limitations has interfered with the punishment of notorious offemdtrs exposed in the re port, and suggests that thestatutc term be lengthened to at least five years. They abso say that the omission of the names of members of congress come In as part of the history of cases was In their judgment wrong, while exception h taken to Bristow's refer ence to Consul Italdtvin at Nuremberg, as "probably knowing as much about this fraud as any other party." Good Word Also for Christ iancy. Corrad and I onapartesay that while his connection needs explanation he fairly entitled to a suspension of judg ment until he has had the opporunlty to explain, as he is a man of good reputation. They also object to the inclusion of the name of G. A. C. Christiancy, the law clerk recently al lowed to resijni, in a passage in the IJristow report that speaks of "the administrative methods of Tyner, Par rctt and Christin ncy," etc. They ray that inasmuch as the acceptance of Christiancy's resignation was recom mended after a full inquiry he is en titled to the benefit of an exoneration from all suspicions of willful official misconduct by intimating that his methods were the same as Tyner's and Barrett's. Notices a "Tendency to Evade. Referring to the Tulloch charges Conrad and Bonaparte says: "The tendency to evade answering these charges evinced by those replying to the postmaster general's request for such answers is illustrated very forci bly by the charges against Perry S. Heath, former assistant postmaster general, which have been heretofore made public and his answers to thera. We consider this answer altogether in sufficient, and no less unsatisfactory in substance than in form." GOES STILL FATHER BACK H!ts the Late Postmaster General Roasts for Heath and Beavers. The report says, referring to the Tul loch charges against Heath, that "it is quite impossible to dispose of these charges by calling them lies out of the whole cloth," and that "a streng prima facie case is presented of willful and reckless disregard by the late first assistant postmaster general of obliga tions imposed on him by the regula tions of his own department as well as by the statutes of the United States; and we feel it our duty to add that suspicion of his personal integrity must be Inevitablyaroused in our Judgment Dy an Impartial consideration of the facts submitted to us and of his plain ly Inadequate explanations " Further along the report says that improper appointments were directly chargeable to Heath and Beavers, but that "It seems clear that this responsibility extends In some measure to the late postmaster gener al, who appears to have at least toler ated the practice tfter notice of Its existence. In summarizing the results of their examinations Conrad and Bonaparte says that the Tulloch charges "have revealed the existence of deplorable and gravely discreditable abuses dur ing the years 1S0S, 1S99 and 1900 in the Washington postoflice and the of fice of the first assistant postmaster general," and that "The persons prim arily responsible for the above men tioned abuses and the resulting scan dals appear to have been Ferry S. Heath, thee first assistant postmaster general, and George W. Beavers, then chief of the salaries and allowance division, neither of whom is now In the service of the United States." To these they add among others the name of Charles Emory Smith, late postmaster general for his seeming failure, notwithstanding repeated warnings, to appreciate the gravity of their misconduct and the consequent necessity for its prompt and adequate punishment." SORT OF RUBS IT IN ON IIIJI Says the Ex-Postal Chief Lacks" Percep tion of the Situation, In a supplementary report the let ter from Smith to the president written since the report is notd and Conrad and t Bonaparte say that the Smith letter contains nothing lead ing "us to doubt the correctness of the conclusions announced in the original report." The report adds: "Mr. Smith's letter shows to our minds not only that there was, as we said, a failure on his part while in office to appreciate the gravity of the situation disclosed by tSie warnings he received, but that he yet falls to appreciate this situation." The report recommends: "That a thorough Investigation be ordered, if It has not been already ordered, (a) of the administration of the Washington postoflice, (b) of the administration of the New York postoflice, and j(c) of the administration of the office of the first assistant postmaster general within the past three years. . "That a carefully chosen, small com mission be appoüyj.sl by the president to report a plan Vuereby the work of the offices of the comptroller and of te several auditors may be removed from all political, personal or .other xtraneous influences, (lie officials therein employed protected from in jury through the enmities they may incur in the discharge of their duties, and the competency, and independence of all eng:i?cd in "this branch of the government secured through their se lection by free competition, promotion for merit only, and assurance of tenure during the continuance of fidelity and efficiency on their own part." JtOOT IN DEFENSE OF WOOD Secretary of War as a Witness Ratlibone Makes New Charge. Washington, Dec. 17. The witness before tne senate military committee was Secretary Root, who appeared in defense of General Wood. In explain ing the supervision over Cuban courts charged against Wood, the secretary said that in Cuba the "court of first instance' was in reality an officer di rected to prosecute aud to obtain evi dence. He was something like a grand jury in finding evidence, but was fur ther empowered to go out and obtain evidence, mingle with the people, pro cure affidavits and otherwise to collect evidence against alleged offenders. The secretary said that Wood acted in the prosecution of the postal cases under orders from the war department. The secretary also took up the sub ject of the Ja I Alai coin pa iy conces sion and said that this was not a gambling company, nor was the gi.me pelota a gambling game any more than was a horse race or a game of base ball. Men could bet on the results, as upon other games of skill. The con cession or rij?ht of the Jai Alai com pany was granted Wore the United States occupation, and that the con cession for which General Wood had leen criticised was that of an addi tion to the building of the company. The matter had been carefully decided at Washington, the only question be ing whether it would be contrary to the Foraker amendment, and Wood had acted under orders from Wash ington. The committee has received a com munication from Major Kathbone, ask ing that his several requests for the subpoena of Colonel I-ebo, Fourteenth United States cavalry. lo acted upon. He suggested that Colonel I.ebo be questioned to bring out the fact that Wood was not with his command on the first day's light at Santiago ou July 1, 1S08. Itequest also was made that Major General S. S. Sumner be examined on the same subject. Ho also gave the names of several other witnesses on other points, amons them that of Corydon A. Ilich, of Munch, Ind. But after hearing Secretary Root, who went over the whole ground and declared the war department ready to stand for all that Wood did. the com. mittee closed the case and will stand 8 to 2 In favor of Wood's confirma tion. Root's testimony was practically the whole of the defense. CUBAN TREATY BILL PASSES Bailey Warns the Republicans That Demo crats Are "Flopping- Tog-ether Washington, Dec. 17.
