HY THE PRE ODIKG OFFICER SENATOR FORAKER TALKS FOR EXPANSION DEFENDS THE ACTION OF THE PRESIDENT IN THE PHIL IPPINE ISLANDS PLIED WITH QUERIES BY MANY SENATORS Mr. Hoar Tul.es the Ohtoun to Tank on Hi- t'onntltnttonal Argument Rlsht of the President to W«C« War AgraJust the Filipinos In Challenged Debate on Ex pansion ('rowing In Interest. WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.— A eli_.AX was reached today in the debate on the question of expansion which is in progress in the senate. Heretofore all of the speeches, with the notable ex ception of that of Mr. Piatt, of Con necticut, ha.c been in opposition to the policy of the administration with re spect to the acquisition of the Philip pines. Today Mr. Foraker, of Ohio, addressed the senate in opposition to the declaration of the Vest resolution that the United States has no constitu tional power to acquire foreign terri tory to be maintained as colonies. Pj-ior to the srjeech of Mr. Foraker, Mr. Bacon (Ga.) offered the following joint resolution: That the government and people of the I'nited States have not waged the recent war ■with Spain for conquest and for the acquisi tion of foreign territory, but solely for the purpose set forth In the resolution of con gress making the declaration of said war, the acquisition of such small tracts of land or harbors as may be necessary for govern mental purposes being not deemed Inconsist ent with the same. That in demanding and receiving the ctssion of the Philippine islands, lt is not the purpose to retain dominion over the same as part of the territory of the United States or to incorporate the inhabitants thereof as citizens of the United States or hold the In habitants as vassals or subjects of this gov ernment. That, whereas. At the time of the declara tion of war by this government against Spain, and prior thereto, the inhabitants of the Philippines were actively engaged in a war with Spain to achieve their independence, and whereas, the said purpose and military oper ations thereunder have not been abandoned, but are sill being actively prosecuted there under, therefore ln recognition of this, and ln obedience to the sentiment in rhe declara tion 'that governments derive their just pow ers from the consent of the governed," the Inhabitants of the Philippines are and of rigfct ought to be free, and with a view to give effect to the same, the government of the United States has requested the govern ment of Spain to relinquish its authority and gi 'Y.rnment in the Philippine islands and to withdraw its land and naval forces from the Philippine islands and from the waters thereof. That the Uuited States hereby disclaim any disposition or intention to exercise sov ereignty, jurisdiction or control over said Islands and assert their determination when »n independent government shall have been duly erected therein, entitled to recognition as siH-h. to transfer to said government, upon terms which shall be reasonable and just, all rights secured under the cession by Spain, and thereupon leave the government and con trol of the Islands to their people. MR. ALLEN PROTESTS. Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, offered the following resolution: That any aggressive action of the army or navy on the part of the United States against the Philippines would be an act of war un warranted on the part of the president and a violation of the executive powers vested ex slii3ively ln congress. '"In submitting this resolution, Mr. President," said Mr. Allen, "I desire to make some observations, but will not enter upon a discussion of the mooted question of an imperialistic policy, re serving that until a later date, when I hope to present my views quite fully.

PAUL GLOBE that our troops are moving upon the people of Iloilo. I ir_trcduep it as a protest against the waging of war by the president and the army and navy without the authority of congress. I think it is a fact Indisputable that war cannot be waged without a formal declaration. In my oMiiion there has been no doubt that what possessory rights we may have in the Philippine islands we acquired from Spain." Mr. Allen proceeded to discuss the situation in the Philippines, and declar ed that the officers of the army and navy were pressing affairs forward in tho islands into a critical state. He was interrupted by Mr. Hoar, who wished to inquire: "Where do we get the right to use force against the people of Iloilo?" "I would be glad to be honored by the attention of the distinguished sen ator from Delaware (referring to Mr. Gray, one of the peace commissioners). "We made a protocol some time in Au gust," continued Mr. Hoar, "under which we are still living with Spain." Mr. Hoar then read from the pro ttcol, showing that the United States would hold the bay, harbor and city of Manila until the disposition of the Phil ippine islands should be determined.' "That clearly implied, " said Mr. Hoar, "that we will make no advance upon Spain or the Spanish people on the islands until the situation shall have been changed. If now we have the power to use the military forces against the Filipinos, where does it ccme from?" Mr. Gray, at whom the question of Mr. Hoar seemed to be directed, rose and said: TECHNICALLY AT WAR. "I wish to remark that the question of the senator from Massachusetts an swers in part the question asked in the remarks of the senator from Nebraska" (Allen). As to peace, Mr. Gray said that technically we were at war with Spain. It was true we were living under a truce, but in conducting the war the president was exercising the powers conferred upon him making war. He pointed out that the only question that could arise would be v. hether we. ln making war on the Filipinos, were violating the protocol, which was made between the United Slates and. Spain, without reference to anybody else; Mr. Hoar said it was a breach of faith to attack Spain at Iloilo, and bad policy to attack Aguinaldo. Mr. Allen replied to Mr. Gray, as serting that Spain had no jurisdiction ln the Philippines, and that Aguinal do's government was the only govern ment there. His government was both a de facto* and a de jure government, and it had maintained itself for sev eral years. Therefore the United States did not succeed to Spain's title to the islands. Mr. Gray replied that evidently Mr. Allen was laboring under a misappre hension; this country was technically at war with Spain until the peace treaty was ratified. It was true that active military operations had ceased, and for this reason the United States was under the highest obligation to maintain good faith in the observance cf the terms of the protocol. Mr. Allen spoke briefly in reply to Mr. Gray, reiterating his position and asking for the Immediate considera tion of his resolution. Mr. Gallinger objected and the reso lution went over. MR. FORAKER'S SPEECH. Mr. Foraker was then recognized and proceeded to deliver his set speech on the general question of the power to extend our territory. He based his re marks principally upon the Vest reso lution, incidentally giving attention to Mr. Mason's measure. The resolutions, he said, were differ ent propositions— the Vest measures raised the question of power; the Ma son resolution that of policy. "We had been told by Mr. Hoar that the ques tion of power was the most important ever raised in the history of the gov ernment. Mr. Foraker did not agree to this distum. On the contrary, It had no importance whatever as a question of practicable consideration. It was a moot question and nothing mere. The resolution expresses the extreme view held by any one, and an analysis of lt was sufficient to demon strate the progress that had been made since the acquisition of Louisiana. There was no precedent when Louisi ana was taken in, and naturally there were then many differences of opinion on the various points involved. Mr Jefferson himself was not positive as to his attitude on some points at issue Now it is conceded, by the very terms of the Vest resolution, that the govern ment has the power not only to acquire territory, but that we may also acquire territory to hold it, though temporarily. This was a great step in advance since the days of Jeffer son, and inasmuch as it made the con cession it was of no practical import ance. On the other hand, the resolution involved a theoretical question of vast importance. To adopt the resolution was to declare that our fathers had brought forth a nation that was in- j ferior to all other nations, regardless of the generally accepted theory that one nation was equal to another and ' all equally unrestricted. Among the powers of nationality are the powers to make wars and to make treaties. This is an inherent right of nationali ty, and the government of the United States has the same power that all other governments have. Our prerog ative is as great as that of Great Britain, said Mr. Foraker. It being true that we have the power to make war, and to enter into treaty agree ments, we logically have the power to acquire territory by conquest or otherwise, and to inherit all the con sequences that may accrue through war. He quoted Chief Justice Mar shall to sustain his position, contend ing that the chief justice had said the United States had not only the right to acquire, but also the right to govern, territory so acquired. "Then we are to understand the statement that the American flag is not to be hauled down?" said Mr. Hoar, "does not mean that we are to hold perpetual domain. "If the people of the Philippines can be best served by self-government, they are to be given an opportunity to govern themselves." FUTURE OF THE PHILIPPINES. "With the determination of the ulti mate policy respecting the Philip pines," replied Mr. Foraker, "their feelings will have much to do. No one, so far as I am able to learn, is pre pared by force and violence to take Continued on Tenth Pay*. THURSDAY MORNING— JANUARY 12, 1899. LOSS OF ONE VOTE the: field make, a trifling inroad into the john son ranks NO SELECTION IN CAUCUS Feeling Ia GrotTlng That the Sena torial Deadlock in North Dakota Will Not Be Broken I mil the Fight Is Taken Into the Legisla ture—Grand Jury Called at Hel ena— — Legisln tion at Pierre. BISMARCK. N. D., Jan. 11.—(Spe cial.) — The senatorial deadlock ls not broken. The Republican caucus met tonight, took two ballots without a de cisive result and adjourned. The ad vantage, if any, was with the antl- Jobnson forces. The eongiessman did not succeed in weakening the lines of the opposition and himself suffered a net loss of one vote in the balloting. The result of the second ballot taken was as follows: Johnson, 29; Marshall, 11; Little, 9; McCumber, 8; Hanna, 6; La Moure, 8, and Cooper, 4. The plan carried out by the opposi tion tonight was originated by McKen zie. It was announced in the afternoon that two ballots would be taken and that the field, in case there was no rad ical break in the Johnson ranks, would force an adjournment. The prediction proved correct. Less talk is heard in ai.ti- Johnson quarters of breaking the congressmen's strength. The impres sion prevails that the field ls playing a waiting game until Tuesday when balloting will take place in the house. In this solution McKenzie sees bright er hopes for success. The Democrats and Populists will caucus Saturday night relative to their attitude in the senatorial fight. While the senatorial contest continues ln its present state, very little Interest is felt ln the legis lature and no business of Importance was transacted today. The committees in both houses are expected to be an nounced Thursday, though Speaker Baker may not be ready before Friday. A senate committee today listened to evidence and arguments in the Cronan- Johnson senatorial contest. Friends of the various candidates still continue to arrive by every train, and the members are being deluged with letters and telgrams instructing them how to act. George S. Barnes, of Fargo, who is here for Johnson, is said to have wired Congressman Loren Fletcher, of Min neapolis, for a statement regarding the standing of Congressman Johnson, and received the following: "We regret to hear that reports are being circuited that Representative Johnson la -without desirable standing in the house of representatives. From personal knowledge we know that he has the respect, confidence and esteem of his aseoc-ate members for hla ability, industry, integrity and devotion 'to the interests of his constituents. He stand* as well as any member of the house." This was signed by ten members of the house, including Tawney and Mor ris, of Minnesota. The opposition olaims that lt is easy to secure the signatures of ten congressmen to such a certificate of character, but ask why Speaker Reed did not sign it. P. J. McCumber authorizes a denial of the statement that he had stated at a meeting at Christie that he would not be a candidate against Johnson, and says it was well understood aU last fall that he was a candidate him self. ANTI-PASS CRUSADE. Bill Offered ln the Sottrth Dakota Senate Wol_ Mount} . PIERRE, S. D., Jan. 11.— (Special.)— The principal bills Introduced in the senate today were to prevent mem bers from accepting railroad passes; requiring the posting of copies of mortgages on mining property; making lt the duty of railroad companies to furnish cars for the transportation of freight and suitable places for receiv ing and hauling the same. A reso lution ordering the appropriations committee to report an appropriation bill not later than Feb. 6 -was Indefi nitely postponed. A list of nominations was filed with the senate by the governor, and the consideration of same made a special order for Jan. 18. The list ls: Board of Regents-^John Sutherland, Pierre. Charities and Corrections — Burr Lien, Sioux Falls; Fred M. Brown, Lead City. Public Examiner — Marid Taylor, Hu ron. Trustees Soldiers' Home— C. S. Pal mer, Sioux Falls, and O. E. Dewey, "Watertown. A motion to require the ways and means committee to report a revenue bill was killed. The principal house bills introduced were: Making the setting of prairie fires a felony; asking for $50,000 for an insane hospital at Redfleld; to make taxes a perpetual lien against prop erty; giving property owners a Hen on the effects of tenants for rent; re quiring the publication of chattle mortgages by publication. Representatives Dwight and Myron were added to the appropriations com mittee. G. H. Hopkins and Daniel Mackiln were appointed on the engrossing forces. The railway commissioners were in vited before the senate committee on appropriations this forenoon to discuss matters pertaining to tbeir deficiency of $11,000 for the past twc years. Thom as H. Null, attorney for the board, was also present. It ls understood that the legislature is disposed to provide for the delinquencies of the board, and to make them a reasonable allowance for the next two years. The board will want $10,000 for litigation expenses, and probably as much more annually for salaries and office expenses and inci dentals. A second meeting was arrang ed for the purpose of going farther into details. The fusion policy, assumed by Sena tor Tyler, is to wait for further devel opments in the matter of the proposed investigation before making any moves. S. C. Hedger, of Aberdeen, has ar rived to oppose the bill providing thai supplies for. state Institutions and of fices and especially printing and blank bcoks, etc., shall be purchased so far as possible within the state. S. A. Cochrane, state director of farmers' institutes,- and nominally co- glneer of Irrigation, is aftfcc here to pro mote the Interests in his -department. A state wolf bounty bill will be intro duced in both houses. The bill has been prepared by the National Stockmen's association at Denver, and will be pre sented in the legislatures of seven Ncrthwestern cattle states. CLARK GAINT VOTES. Denounce* tbe Charges ot Bribery aa a Daly Conspiracy. HELENA, Mont., Jan. 11. — A grand jury was called today in the district court to Investigate the charges of bribery made by State Senator White side yesterday, who turned over to the committee $30,000 ln bill* of the size of $1,000, declaring that he had secured them of the representative of William Clark, a candidate for the senatorship. He said his object waa to get this money from the Clark people and then expose their methods. Mr. Clark sec onded the request for a grand jury, and declares he will be able to prove the whole thing a conspiracy on the part of his enemies. The grand jury will meet Saturday and begin its work. The excitement occasioned by the re port of the committee and Whiteside's speech has died out, with people tak ing sides according, to their friendship for Mr. Clark or the Anaconda people. On joint ballot for United States Senator this afternoon Clark gained three votes and Conrad three. The vote was: Conrad, 3; Tool, 20; Mar shall, 15; Clark, 10; Hartman, 3; Hoff man, 2; Fox, 2; Mantle, 1. W. A. Clark, in an interview today, pronounces the sensational charges connecting him with alleged bribery, made yesterday just before the ballot was taken, as a conspiracy Inspired by Marcus Daly, and demands an im mediate grand jury investigation. Senator Whiteside, who made the disclosures, and who produced $30,000 in currency he claimed had been given him by Clark's manatees for purposes of bribery, swears that ex-United States Marshal William McDermott threatened to kill him If he said any thing. The investigation committee has made no further report, but is still probing the bribery charges. TO SUCCEED HIMSELF. Senator Clark to Be Returned Frctm Wyoming. CHEYENNE, Wyo., Jan. 11.— Both the senate and house of the legislature completed organization today, with Hon. John McGill, of Albany county, for president of the senate, and Hon. L. R. Davis, of Weston county, for speaker of the house. A senatorial caucus, held this evening by the Re publicans, resulted ln the selection of C. O. Clark for United States senator to succeed himself. /The vote for sen ator will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 24, and after a complimentary ballot has been given, Mr. Clark will receive the entire forty-seven votes of the Repub lican members, and the election to the United States senate for six years. TRYING TO FOOL DEATH. Peoria Man, Whoa. Passing Was Predicted, Keeps Cnd-V CWer. PEORIA, 111., Ja^i, /1.-John Block, whose death had beep predicted for Jan. 15 by a fortune teller, announces that he will fool the death angel. When a reporter call£d upon him to night he was in bed sleeping between two immense feath.er mattresses in order that he may not contract the grip, which is prevalent here at this time. Mr. Block is indignant at the public ity given the affair, and says that, while he did not see the state's attor ney, some of his friends did, for the purpose of having that functionary so frighten the prophet, that he would cease his grewsome practice of fore telling the death of friends. Mr. Block pushed back the feather tick long enough to announce ih loud tones that he intended to give the fortune teller a sound beating on sight. Since the publication of the effort to secure an injunction against death, the members of the society to which the men belong have been making strenuous efforts to have the matter hushed up. They say it wag all a Joke, that the professor was only in fun, and that Block appreciates the joke and will not die Sunday, as pre dicted. Yesterday there were plenty of men willing to say they had heard the for tune teller make the prediction and witnessed the depressing effect it was having on Block, but today they all deny it. Meanwhile Mr. Block, the most in terested person in the queer case, keeps himself well wrapped against cold, and says he will disprove the claims of the prophet; not only this, but he will teach the professor a les son ln the manly art the first time he sees him. BOY PREACHING BARRED. Negro Baby Evangelist Is in Charge of the Gerry Society. NEW YORK, Jan. 11.— Laun. Law rence Dennis, the child evangelist, is under the espionage of the agents of the Gerry society. This five-year-old child has been giving religious per formances in this city, only different in character from those that the law for bids other children to give upon the stage. Dr. J. Hartmann, who has made a specialty of the study of brain devel opment, made an examination of the child preacher today. He found that the boy was a parrot— simply replied in answer to questions of a religious nature in phrases that he had been taught, and talked rui all other sub jects like a child. A careful, unbia-»d scrutiny of Laune Lawrence Dennis, the negro lit tle boy "evangelist," «nd his "inspir ed" exhortations, convey but an Im pression — that the child is driven to his task; that he is a stave rather than a leader, and that he stands ln whole some awe of some one who prepares his "inspired" speeches for him. H« seems to be at most a precocious ne gro baby, whose quick wit enables him to repeat the lessons drilled into him without knowing why he does so, save to avoid, perhaps, a swiftly descend ing hand. £ Facts Abnnt Champagne.

HARRISBURG, Pa.. Jan. 11.— The selection of a successor to Senator Quay has created almost as much con tention ln the legislature as it has ln the Republican ranks. With the De mocracy the question Is whether George F. Jenks, of Brookville, or Chauncey F. Black, of Yorkville, shall be the nominee ln the caucus in the supreme court chambers tomorrow. With the Republicans it is Senator Quay against the field, with neither side certain as to the outcome. The Republicans have a majority of HON JOSEPH HODGES CHOATE, Nominated by the President to Be Ambassador to Great Britain. WASHINGTON, Jan. 11— The president to day sent to the senate the nomination of Joseph H. Chcate, of New York, to be am baseaidor extraordinary and plenipotentiary to Great Britain. Joseph Hodgee Choate was horn in 1832, in Massachusetts, ami is the son -of Dr. George Choate. He was- urad uated in 1854 from Harv*rd law school, and was admitted in 1865 to tho bar. He formed a partnership with William H. Barnes, but in 1858 became a member of the firm of seventy-four, on Joint ballot, and the only way the Democrats hope to win is by a split among* the Republicans. Senator Quay has a majority of votes to start with in his own party, but so long as the anti-Quay legisla tors stand together he cannot be re elected. While the Democrats are di vided on the selection of a candidate to be voted for against Quay, they agree that the senator will not poll any Democratio votes. The senate and house will vote separately next Tuesday, and jointly the following day. Many of the legislators are predicting that there will be a deadlock, and that a senator will not be elected until after the trial of the Quay-Haywood conspiracy case in the Philadelphia court. A new and interesting phase is plac ed upon the election of a senator by the general agreement among the law yers that the man receiving the ma jority of votes cast in the joint session of the legislature will be the next sen ator. On joint ballot there are 254 votes. A majority of these would be 128, therefore 65 would be necessary* for a choice, assuming that 128, or a bare majority, were present. Of the 109 Republicans who voted in the caucus last week, 99 named Sena tor Quay as theh- choice. At that time it was agreed that the action of the caucus was binding upon all of those present, and Senator Quay still lack ed 19 of the 128 necessary to elect. Under the condition, as it really ex ists, If a number of members are ab sent, from, sickness or other cause, when the joint ballot is cast, it is pos sible that a much smaller number than 128 will decide the senatorship. It is stated that a secret conference has been held between the leaders of the Quay faction and certain Demo cratic leaders, with a view to prevent ing fusion on the senatorship -between the Democrats and anti-Quay Repub- I llcans. The Democrats who took part in the conference will, it is stated-, en deavor to hold the eighty-four Demo cratic members of the legislature In line for a straight out Democrat, thus defeating the selection of an anti- Quay Republican. Senator Quay reached Harrlsburg tonight, from Washington, to take per sonal direction of his campaign. Sen ator Penrose came with him. MAKING SPORT OF IT.

W 111 Jiot Interfere In the Dreyfus rrm-rfdinga. LONDON, Jan. 12.— M. De Blowltz, the Paris correspondent of the Times, predicts that neither the government nor the chamber of deputies will take the Dreyfus case from the criminal branch of the court of cassation, and the result of the interpellations in the chamber will be a vote of confidence in the government. FATALJJUEL German Civilian Killed by an Of ficer. LONDON, Jan. 12.— The Berlin cor respondent of the Dally News says: "In the duel at Metz, on Monday, Lieut. Shickmann, of the Bavarian in fantry, shot and killed Herr Tillmann, Evarts, Southmain ft Choate. For the leat tea years Mr. Choate has beon generally acknowledged to be the leading lawyer of the New York bar. Mr. Chcate's political career practically began in 1853, when he .took the !<ump for Fremon't. Since then he has boeii known as an ardent Republican, though he has never held office. At timas he has mot been in touch with the party or ganization. From 1873 to 1877 he was pre_l -dent of the Union League Club of New York City. a civilian. In accordance with the em peror's, decree, duels are allowed only in exceptional cases and by the consent of the court of honor. Tillmann, who was shoved off the sidewalk by some officers last May,- struck one with a stick and boasted of it in the restau rants. The court of honor decided that as he 'was a member of a wealthy fam ily he could give satisfaction and se lected Lieut. Shlckmann to represent the regiment. The father of Tillmann vainly appealed to the police to stop the duel." FRANK GOULDS DEBUT. Will Make His Appearance at Re ception. Given by HI.. S I .-> 1 .- r .

There was a matter of $10,000,000 or so coming to him, his "share of the fortune left by his father. Russell Sage had had the nursing of this pretty nest egg, and, while tho figures have never been given out, lt ls believed that the shrewd old financier made Frank's $10,000,000 look much more like $20,000,00, so carefully and successfully had he Invested it.

HERO OF A COUP. This appeal is a palpable appeal for I the support of the army. But M. De Beaurepaire, who she-, up like a sky rocket, as the most tremendous sensa tion of the whole Dreyfus controversy, now seems failing line a rocket from his pre-eminence as a leader of the ar.ti-Dreyfusards and the possible hero of a coup. The best observers of pub lic opinion declare that the Impression created by his first remarkable denun ciation of the court of cassation has been succeeded by skepticism regard ing his motives and the vaiue of his revelatitons. Many if not rriost Frenchmen esti mate him as a politician who had i found the bench too prosaic for a man j long accustomed to the excitement of | party strife, and who thought he had I found an opportunity to make himself ! the leader of a popular movement. The | charges he brings today against the j court of cassation add nothing of con | bequer.ee to yesterday's indictment, ex- I cept accusations that M. Loevve had conferences outside the court room with Col. Picquart's advocate and friend, llaitre Leblois, and that Coun sellor Dumas conferred outside the. court room with friends and relatives of Dreyfus. M. Mazeau, first president of the court, expressed the opinion that it would be unfair to the criminal cham ber to withdraw the case, and recom mends the t the criminal chamber should act as judge of instruction, drawing a report upon the case to be I submitted to the full tribunal over which .1. Mazeau would preside. The criminal chamber is continuing j the Inves tlgation. M. Fatelogue, a wit- I ness from the foreign office, who had ! been several days under examination, says the Judges appeared greatly ex cited on the day of M. Beaurepaire's resignation. NO RE3T FOR FRANCE. Two fresh chapters of the affair will be opened in a few days, so that the country is tt> have no rest from agita tion. The first is the trial of .'bain Gohior, for his alleg-_l Insults to the French army in his book, "The Army Againet the Nation?' M.. Gohoir will call 400 witnesses and insist up..i threshing out again the whole Mada gascar ..inipaign. The secend chapter will be the libel suit against Joseph Re'nach, editor of La Republique Fran caise, and Conservative deputy for the district of Deignan, who ls charged by the widow of the late Lieut. Col. Hen ry with having insulted his memory by suggesting in La Republique Fiau caise that Henry was the real traitor. The Reinach prosecution, for which a great popular subscription has been made, seems to be the last card of the ar.ti-Dreyfusards. If this and the scan dal of De Beaurepaire's resignation tail to stop revision, then nothing will be left them except to appeal to force.
