"The Civil Government bill, whtch will come up for consideration in the Senate tomorrow is an iniquitous measure," aitid Senator Carmack of Tennessee, yesterday, when a ked his opinion. "As a member of the Philippines Committee," continueti the Senator, "I have had an opportn nity of listening to the testimony at first haul anti there is no ground whatever for postponing the e~sb llshmeut of a permanent governm* nt in the islands. Neither is it n' cessa ry that a census be token in oa'ler that Congress may net inte'ligentiv. The Filipinos are an intedlig--nt pn ple quite capable of, at lezest, local self-government. The eduenLzt'*d pco pie of the ialandr. and by that term I refer to those who can rend and write Spanish, are of a psrticularly- high clsass, many of them having -nojopil the advantages of higher educt-~ioo and their fathers before them for two hundred years. Generals MacArthur and Whittier, Dr. Schurmsn, lion. John Barrett, ex-Minister to Siam, Admiral Dewey and the educators now Ia the Islands have all given testimony as to the ediseatiou and intelligence of the people and have all practically declared them capable of representation in a lepslative as Isembly of their own; and this would be particularly true were their gov. erunent to be organized with an up per chamber, the m mnb: r' of which were appointed by the President. The claim that it is nece-sary to take a census is simply a ruse to prirmlt the disposal, to favored capitalists, of the 'franchi'es and grants in the islands before the ¶ eople have a voice in such disposition. As an example of the melio ls whibh are being followed there, the first railroad, which will be built with the Falipino's money, is to be constructed from Manila up to a place in the mountains which will be used solely as a place of recreation by the American residents during the heated term. It will serve no indue. trial purpose whatever. It is all distressing. The exploitiation of the islands by favored corporations, if the administration's poiicy is success. ful, will ae a disgrce to the fair name of this country. Yes, I shall mike a speech on the subject as will a number of demncratic Senators. "As to the conduct of the Amen- can troops on the islands, that too is a disgrace. Take the report of the governor of Batangas in which he shows that one-third of the popula tion of ac'imated natives has died during the last year of "maloria." I am afraid that* if the andinistr:ation were not systematically s'Jppressiug the facts that form of malaina would be spelled "S TARVATI 0N." "Yes, I shall otter one amendumenit which 1 sincerely hope will b. adopt ed. It will provide that any Amnri can corporation, company or indivi dual who shall mike any contizact fur slaves or slave labor, shall forfeit all its rights, grants and franchises. I am credibly informed that there are American syndicates which have con tracted with the J1rn chiefs fur the performance of labor on certain rub ber pilantations by the slaves belong ing to such chiefs." The action of the Senate in (is carding the Chiuese Exclusion bill reported by the Committee on Immi gration and re-enacting the Geary law was in accordance with the t're diction made in my letter a week ago. The influence of the large corpora tions on the Pecific slope, which fear, ed that the stricter provisions if tho Chinese bill would necessitate their paying higher wages, prove) all sumfeient to induce the republican senators to vote down the bill. Sena tor Hanna, who announced himself as the friend of the American work ing man, repudiated the ides that they would disapprove the action of the Senators who favored the Platt amendment substituting the Geary law. The Cuban reciprocity bill has not yet passed the House of Represents. tives. Tomorrow evening has been set for the cklse af the general de bate,-and Lih leaJe's say that it wilt pass Saturday. That the bill wil pass wiihout amendment is probe ably a safe pr ilictiou but the gap which it will leave behind it in the republican ranks will not augar well for the future success of that party. "Tyranny," "blackmail," "hold-ups," are some of the terms with which the beet sugar contingent describe the methods by which the administration has assured success. The New York Press, the leading champion of the extreme protectionist faction of the tepublican party, characterizes the present administration as "*govern meat by blackmail." Whatever dif ferences there may have been in the past between democrats they never compared In intensity or bitterness with tha ruptures which are rapidly forming in the republican columns. Representative Swanson of Virginia during a speech in favor of the reci. procity measure was asked if he expected to start a free trade move ment in the republisan majority and he replied, "We have already con. verted them to 20 per cent of our views," and that is what the opposi tion fears. The split between the President and Congress, over constitutional prerogatives, which I predicted weeks ago, has materialized and a subucoim mittee of the House Committee ('n Mitary Affairs is searching the rec ords for precedents which will justify its passage, over his veto, of some of the bills whlch Mr. Roosevelt has rejected. The President claims that it, is not within the province of Con gress to set aside the findings of a oourt,-marlial and restore to the rolls of those henorably discharged from the army or navy, the names of per eons who have been dishonorably dismissed. The House Committee is greatly exercised over the claIm and witl make every effort to refute it and it is doubtful if the Prcsident can muster a sufficient number of friends In the lower House to support his vetoes if the Committee decides that its action will he sustaIned by the courts. If the President Is cor meet one of the ('hief sources of pen sion frauds will be abolished but it ivill also mean the curtailment, to a very serious extent, of the power of rep'ibli'an Congressmen to reward their jpol~tic 11 creditors. There is a o longer any doubt as to the int'ntizoa of the administration to ratire Gen'ral Miles. The Senate Committee on Military Afisirs has threateueI to hold up for all time the coantirmation of Captain Crozier as Chi'f of 'he Ordance Bureau and has proteated with vigor against an ac titan which alplears to be a punish meet of the General for telling to that committee what he believed to be the truth in regard to the Root army bill, but all to no purpose. Mr. Roosevelt has determined to get rid of Miles and no consideration of nourtesy to the Senate or of policy will prevent his carrying out his purpose. CASTORIA For Infants and Children.

All Doctors have tried to core CATARRH by the use of powders, acid gases, inhalers and drugs in paste form. Their powders dry up the mucuous membranes causing them to crack open and bleed.
