CARMACK TELLS TDK HOI SK "WHAT MAY HAPPEN TO AMERICA WAR OF CONQUEST DEPLORED Polioy wf Imperialism Mean* Loss of Peace and Mind, and Costly Mil itary and \nval Establishments War for Conquest \pnln>l 1 1 1 i >>i nos a Crime Attalnst Lib ert) Warning of Statesmen. WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.— The house teclay passed the diplomatic ar.d con sular appropriation bill without amendment. Durlnp the general de bate two set speeches were made against imperialism by Messrs.Carmack and Qaines, of Tennessee. The diplo matic and consular is the sixth of the regular appropriation bills to pass the house, budgets yet remain to be acted upon. Mr. Hltt (Rep.. 111.), chairman of the foreign relations committee, made tht- preliminary statement of the meas- Dre, which he said carried $1,705,5:13, being $12.. _ M less than the estimates and $46,675 less than the current law. All diplomatic and consular offices in the HawaKaii islands, Porto Rico and Cuba were abolished by the bill, effect ing a saving in salaries of $4..,000. There was some criticism by Mr. Handy (Dem.. Del.) of the conduct of the bureau of American republics un der the former director, the late Joseph P. Smith, which drew out a warm de fense of that officer from Mr. Hitt. The latter said that, while Mr. Smith may have developed certain lines of the woik of the bureau beyond the limitations, there should be no asper sion upon a conscientious, able and faithful officer, whose zeal may have led him too far. Mr. Smith, he said, had sacrificed his life to his devotion to duty. Mr. Dinsmore then yielded two hours to Mr. Carmack (Dem.. Term.), who delivered a carefully prepared argu ment in opposition to the policy of the administration relative to the Philip pines. He protested against launehirnr this government on a career of con quest and criminal aggression. The president, he declared, was now wag ing war upon his own responsibility, for his own purpose. While the war against Spain had been blessed of God, this war for the conquest of the Philippines was a crime against lib erty, and the curse of God was upon it. It revolutionized every tradition of the republic. It was being entered upun thoughtlessly and recklessly, without considering the cost. It was in utter contempt of the solemn warn ings of the greatest and wisest of our statesmen. The flag was to be kept floating over the Philippines, but not a single freeman was to stand beneath its folds. A country that was not fit for p. freeman's home was not fit for a free man's flag. (Democratic ap plause.) He spoke of the tremendous cost distant possessions would entail upon us. drawing his illustrations from the countries of Europe. England, he said, expended one-third of her reve nue for the cost of past wars and one thiid in preparing for future wars. Only one-third was expended to meet the current necessities of government. But more than the monetary cost, ! said he. would be the loss of our sense of security and peace of mind. War j all around threatened us constantly, j and to meet it we would have to be armed to the teeth <>n sea and land. Once a nation tasted of colonial em pire, it became a passion. The appe- j tin- was never satisfied. Yet one of j the world's greatest men had declared j that colonial empire had never been a • source of power to any country. 1 Macaulay affirmed it. Lord Beacons- I field declared that England's colonies i were a millstone about her neck. He referred sarcastically to Secretary Gage's alleged statement that Chris tian civilization and 5 per cent profit could go hand in hand. He wanted to know if we cou'.d serve God and mam mon at the same time. Mr. Carmack was liberally applaud- | ed and congratulated by his colleagues 1 •vhen he concluded. Mr. Games (Dem., Term.) followed j with an argument against the power of the United States to acquire terri tory except for the purpose of making states id such territory. At the conclusion of Mr. Games re marks, Mr. Hitt announced that his side did not desire to consume the time allotted to it, and the bill was re ported to the house and passed with out division or amendment. On motion of Mr. Lacey, the bill to extend the scope of the fish commis- | sion to game birds was sent to con- ! ference. after a motion to postpone 1 the bill indefinitely had been voted i down. 38-71. A bill was passed authorizing the * Little River Railway company to ', construct a railway through the Choc taw •• and Chickasaw Indian reserva tions. WILL MAKE CONCESSIONS. Amerienn Lnm liermen Disposed to Deal Fairly With Canadians. WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.— .Representatives j t>f the American and Canadian lumber inter- ' e.ts met in conference here today. Among j the American lumbermen were W. C. Mc- j ("lure, of Duluth; S. T. McKnigat, C. A. I Smi'h and B. P. Nelson, of Minneapolis; Will- I iani Irvine, cf Chippewa Falls, Wis.; E. L. ! McCormick, Hayward, Wis.; Judge J. W ' Cochran, of Ashland, Wis. Thtr: was also present United States High Joint Coinuii.-sioner John A. Kasson, Congress- I men Stewart, lirous.ard and Tawney. and Mr. ! Charlton, a member of the Canadian high Joint committee. Mr. Charltin, the first speaker, was followed by Representative Tawney. and he by Mr. Kdwards. Lumber, It is said, has been the ro;k on which the I'nittd States and Canadian jo'nt commissioner*' have split in every effort at ajriement on a reciprocity treaty. The Ca nadians have been willing to make any reasonable concessions fcr free white pine, but have hesitated to agree to any conces sions without important reciprocal advantages on lumber. Free admission to Canada cf American forest products and free expjrt of raw logs 2nd pulp wood are the concessions the Canadians offer. In exchange for the proposed concession, the Canadians at this morning's ses.lon put in a strong plea for free lumber The Americans, however, pro duced data, tending lo -h..w that the manu facture o£ lumber in Canada Is much cheaper than in the United States, and that their proximity to the New England market and the important concessions granted them by the Canadian roads, places the Northwestern and Southeastern product of the United States at a very great disadvantage and conseQuently C.eir dtmand is wholly untenable. It seems probable, however, that the American lum b:iir.en. rather than that the pending treaty between the two countries should completely fall, will consent to a concession of 20 per cent from the present $2 rate.

SEDAN AP FASHODA STINGING REPARTEE INDULGED ll* BY tl 1711 Hi: Its OF FRENCH - CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES COURT OF CASSATION CASE : Heated Debate 11.1 to the Fouuda tlou lor tbe 1 lnirm-N Preferred hy M. de !l«-ii 11 re ;>it i r«- Premier Dupuy Insists Thai the I'tmo.t FalrneHN Shall Prevail (•overn luent Sustained at Every Point. PARIS, Jan. 12 —The chamber of I deputies was crowded today. Paul '< Deschanel, in taking tho chair, said that France loved both the army and justice, lie dwelt upon the danger of internal dissensions, appealing to dep uties to be calm and moderate. Then, on the motion of M. Dupuy, the pre mier, the chamber decided to proceed immediately to discuss the Interpella tion of Lucien Millevoy, Republican Nationalist, respecting M. de Beaure ' paire's accusations against the court of cassation. M. Millevoy, amid a con stantly growing tumult, dwelt upon the sensation caused by these accusations, and declared it impossible to continue the revision proceedings under present conditions. He read M. de Beaure paire's statements and demanded the adoption of disciplinary measures I against the guilty judges, asserting j that it was for the chamber and the ! government to take steps to allay pub ! lie excitement. J Joseph Lasies, p!cb!scitaire-anti j Semite deputy for Condom, in the de | partment of Gers, evoked considerable ; applause by asserting that the country had had enough of the Dreyfus affair, but the tumult was speedily renewed when he began a violent attack upon M. Loew, president of the criminal bianch of the court of cassation; M. Manau, the procurer general, and M. Bard, official reporter to the court upon I the original appeal of Mme. Dreyfus ! for revision. "Their actions," he said, "call for the closest scrutiny." PREMIER PROTESTS. M. Dupuy rose to protest against the attacks of M. Lasies upon the judi ciary. The president of the chamber (M. Deschanel) called M. Lasies to order, but the deputy continued long enough, amid a deafening uproar, to make a definite charge against the criminal branch of the court of cassation dis playing partiality and to declare that the Dreyfus faction was being sup ported by foreign gold. M. Lebret, minister of justice, said that undoubtedly a fresh incident had arisen in connection with the affair, but as a citizen and a deputy he cher ished opinions to which he was faith ful. As minister of justice he had certain duties to perform, and in per forming them he would not falter. His first duty, he went on to say, was to assure the regular course of law As certain charges had been brought against a judge he had made them the subject of special, searching and sin cere inquiries. __. Lebiet then re counted the details of the Bard-Pic quart incident already cabled. With teference to M. Bard's addressing Pic quart as "colonel," the minister of jus lice said that the generals themselves continue to call him "colonel " and Capt. Erique, Picquarts jailer, had been ordered to do so. This statement was followed by a great uproar, M. Lasies moving a suspension of the session in order to allow the minister for war, M. de Frey cinet, to be summoned. M. Lebret, ignoring the interruption went on to declare that inquiry into M. de Beaurepaire's original charges showed that all the witnesses had been treated in the same fashion by the court of cassation, which had invarja- ! bly expressed regret at having to trou ble them to attend. The court he remarked, regarded such refreshments as had been served to any as at the ! disposal of all witnesses, for they consisted only of a jug of water anda bottle of rum. (Cries of Oh, oh! and shouts of laughter.) He continued by requesting M. Beaurepaire to draw up a formal list of charges into which M Mazau, first president of the court of cassation, could Inquire. Paul de Cassagnae, Conservative deputy for Mirande, in the depart ment of Gers, followed. He said that he thought the ministerial explana tions utterly inadequate, equivocal and suspicious. The Republicans were an swerable for the present deplorable state of affairs. SEDAN AND FASHODA. Violent protests, altercations in the various parts of the house and cries of "What about Sedan?" followed. M. de Cassagnae retorted: "There are not only military Sedans. When one retires from Fashoda one cannot say much." (Terrible uproar.) M. Cassagnae, despite the deafen ing tumult, continued, saying that the judiciary was being dragged to the Gemonise (the steps in ancient Rome 1 down which dead malefactors were j thrown), and that the republic would j end wallowing in the mud. M. Dupuy next said: "The govern j ment has done nothing with which to I reproach itself. The country knows I that we are giving all our care Ito the army. Respect for law and j love of liberty unite all Republicans, I and all persons affected will have an j opportunity of explaining at the in ! quiry about to commence with regard ! to the Dreyfus case. Let us have done I with it as speedily as possible. Let us ! restore quiet to the country." (Loud I cheers.) M. Godefroy Cavagnac, former minis -1 ter of war. followed the premier, caus : ing another hubbub by reiterating that i the judiciary had undertaken the de ; fense of Picquart. He censured their I partiality, and asked what measures ' should be adopted to restore their ! reputation for integrity and upright : ness. GAVE PICQUART GROG. Several deputies having cailed for j the production of the report of Capt. j Erique, Col. Picquarts jailer, M. Le ! Bret attempted to read the document, j but his voice was drowned in cries and I the report had to be reread. It testi j fi<jd to the profound deference that had I been shown Col. Picquart, and dwelt I especially upon the fact that he had I "been kept well supplied with grog, a j statement that was received with great ! laughter. M. Leon de Baudrey d'Asson, Conser j vative deputy fcr Sables d'Oiinde, mov- I ed that the whole court of cassation ! should be court-martialed. The closure was then declared, and I various orders of the day were -propos ed, the premier accepting the proposal of the Leftists advocating the order of the day pure and simple. After some remarks of astonishment that apparently greater faith was plac ed in the report of a caotain of gen darmerie than in the honor of the su- I preme court, and after several futile attempts of M. Cavagnac to speak again, the order of the day, pure and simple, was adopted, 423 to 124, and the chamber adjourned. After the chamber rose M. Dupuy in formed a deputy that the government had ordered an inquiry as to how M. Cavagnac secured Capt. Erique's report regarding Col. Picquart to the military governor of Paris. SERIOUS FOR FRANCE. Parisians Place Credcnop In M. de Beaurepaire's Declaration*. PARIS, Jan. 12.— The evi^^t ten dency abroad to minimize and even ridicule the declarations of M. Quesnay de Beaurepaire, the former president of the civil branch of the court of cassation, ls regarded here as a fur ther example of the disposition outside of France to belittle every incident and all evidence unfavorable to the Dreyfus cause, ft is impossible to con verse with representative men in Paris without seeing that the action -.>f M. de Beaurepaire haß created a deep im pression. The fact, he alleges are not considered trivial. ■ Some of them are held to be of real importance, and all of them taken together are thought to ! make out a good case against the crim inal branch of the' court of cassation. j Moreover, it is noteworthy that M. de Beaurepaire's declarations have made a deeper impression in the legal circles than anywhere else. Dreyfusist views had been making great headway at the palais de justice during the last four months, but now they have few defend ers in the criminal branch. UNITED MINE WORKERS. Sennit lon ('au»ed hy Mutilation of the KeeordN. PITTSBURG, p a ., Jan. 12.— When the fourth day's session of the United Mine Workers' convention was called to order the chairman of the investi gation committee reported that the committee had worked on the books all night and would not be ready to report to the convention for several hours. A recess was then taken until 1 o'clock. Prior to the resumption of the session a sensation was sprung by the discov ery that during the absence of the in vestigating committee at breakfast, unknown persons had entered the com mittee room in the St. Charles hotel, and mutilated the records. Eighteen pages were torn from the ledger and carried away, while many other pages were blotted and blurred. The an nouncement caused intense indignation. The miner's officials believe that the object was to destroy the records from Illinois. This state had been gone over by the investigating committee and no objections were found to seating any of the delegates represented by the com mittee on credenitals. At the afternoon session Secretary John Fahey read the ieport of the investigating committee, which was adopted. He said he believed the cre dentials committee made a fair report according to the entries of the ledger. The lists of locals of the thirteen states represented, together with the number of members and the votes to which they are entitled., were read, requiring nearly one hour s time. The creden tials of the delegates from a number of local unions' were referred back to the convention for a further considera tion. Patrick Dolan and L. L. Lewis have formally withdrawn from the contest •for the presidency. GEN. GOMEZ HURT. Feels Keenly Slight Put U*on Him hy American*. * REJMIEDIOS, Province of Santa Clara, Ouba, Jan. .12.— Gen.

PAUL MBN SEVERAL BRILLIANT PLAYS The Great Expert Plays a Draw Wltli Ulmluvv and LoseH to Three Other* (.Hever Work by W. E. Hill Sniumai j ot the Gajnes What PlUwbary Has Been Doinv the Past Ten Days. When Harry N. Pillsbury, the chess champion, arrived from Northfield yes terday afternoon, he felt too tired to attempt any exhibition play at the chess and whist rooms. In the evening play did not get started until 8 o'clock, at which hour there was a large gath ering, not only of chess players, but of whist players, to see the man who was I an expert at the three great scientific games, chess, whist and checkers. The players against Pillsbury were: Dr. A. T. Bigelow, A. L. Alness, G. B. Spencer, Dr. 11. L. Taylor. F - A. Hill. Gen. William Smith, W. E. Hill, J. i. Jellett, H. A. Hageman, W. C. Sargeant, Dr. D. W. Rhodes, E. P. Elliott, T. J. Buford. W. J. Tlerney. W. L. Chapin, The first pause was made at Mr. Sar geant's table on the fifth move, and in the same round very briefly at Spen cer's table, and on the sixth round he honored Dr. Rhodes and Tierney with a little "extra consideration. All his openings were gambits of the open order. The games were noteworthy for their infinite variety, no two being alike after the opening moves. In some he castled early, in others he postponed castling, leaving himself the option of going to cover on either side, in others he exchanged queens early and played his king for a fight ing piece. Gen. Smith, who, for want of practice of late years, has lost much of his old-time skill, was the first to get into serious trouble by the loss of his queen for a bishop. Elliott and Chapin were the next to lose pieces and get into chancery. About the fif teenth move Dr. Bigelow's position be came dangerous through one of Pllls bury's peculiar threatened combina tions. Spencer had to give up the exchange to avoid a threatened mate from an assault by the queen and two knights on the castled king, which, with loss of two pawns previously, put him out of court, practically. Buford played one of his very best games, such as he can play at a pinch, and the game at the seventeenth move was without the loss of even a pawn on either side, the game being an ir regular defense to pawn to queen's fourth. On the eighteenth move Bu ford won a pawn, and on the nine teenth, after quite lengthy delibera tion, Pillsbury offered the exchange, but Buford preferred taking his piece back and holding the pawn advantage. Tierney, supposedly one of the weak er vessels, held his gambit pawn and had gained a very strong defensive and a somewhat threatening offensive position by the twentieth move. At the twentieth move Hageman was a pawn behind, but with a very fair position. Elliott at this stage was playing very steadily and had held his own, though Pillsbury had a strong mass on the center. F. A. and W. E. Hill both held good and even posi tions, W. B. having quite an attack tnreatening. On the twenty-third move Buford gained another pawn and was ln a good position to force exchanges. Alness lost a knight for a pawn in this round, and his stubborn defense was materially weakened. On this round Jellett's game showed a knight and bishop gained for a rook and two pawns lost, but Pillsbury's center and strong queen's wing seemed to be worth it. Sergeant had lost a piece, but had two ugly pawns ahead, one of them past and well backed. Bige low had been steadily improving his position, and on the twenty-seventh move Pillsbury abandoned it as a draw. Dr. Rhodes fell a sudden victim to a neat coup on the twenty-eighth move. On the thirtieth move Tierney was two pawns ahead with another in sight, and looked like a sure winner, his game being even better than Bu ford's, surprising every one by the skill and patience with which it had been handled. A BRILLIANT FINISH. On the thirtieth move W. E. Hill announced mate in three from the fol lowing position: White— X X Xt, Q X 83, R Q gq, B K2, Xt Q 84, Ps at X Xt 2, Q 83, Q Xt 3, Q R4. Black— X Q Xt, Q Q 82, RK R sq, B Xl, Xt; K5, P3 at X 82, Q 83, Q Xt 2, Q R3. On the thirty-fifth move Pillsbury resigned to Tierney, who was three clear passed pawns ahead. The Buford game, notwithstanding the two pawns, should have been a draw but for an oversight, for with rooks exchanged and bishops of op posite colors nothing could have been done but a dance back and forward. . This evening Pillsbury is to play twenty simultaneous games after giv ing the Minneapolis players a shake up In the afternoon. If there are any ohecker players who desire to try their strength they will be accommodated In addition to the chess games and" at the same time. SUMMARY. Table. Player. Moves.

From Dec. 31 Pillsbury was In Chicago playing exhibitions daily both blind fold and simultaneously. Thursday, Jan. 5, he played blindfold at the Chi cago university against eight strong players, giving the move, a most un usual thing ln this style of exhibition, as it gave his opponents the openings. Friday afternoon he played a series of hard games against Mr. Lee, one of Chicago's strongest. Saturday evening he played twenty-seven chess and ten checker games simultaneously. Sun day afternoon he played twenty-five simultaneous games at the Deutscher club, at Milwaukee, and in the evening four blindfold simultaneous games against the strongest players. Monday he spent on the cars, getting little rest. Tuesday at Albert Lea he played eight chess and two checker games blindfold and simultaneously ln the afternoon and "n the evening ten chess games. Wednesday, at Northfield, four blindfold games in the afternoon and in the evening seventeen simultaneous chess games. After such a series of labors, and be lt known that all the blindfold and simultaneous experts confine them selves to two days only of such hard work per week, he felt mentally and physically fagged so that he spent the afternoon in getting acquainted v with the St. Paul and Minneapolis players and chatting over chess and chess masters and their methods. The even ing play begfi.n at 7:30, when a large number of chess, checker and whist players were present to watch the quiet dark-eyed little man handling so many intricate problems at once, one of which has been enough, often, to give them a headache. The representative of The Glob c questioned Mr. Pillsbury regarding the force of players of today compared with Morphy and his contemporaries. In substance his answer was: "All masters of today are student. as well as players. In Morphy's day there were few, if any, students, as the word is considered today. Since Morphy's day the openings of games have -been carried quite a number of moves onward by careful analysis, and the masters have made themselves ac quainted with their force. They now Htudy positions thus: 'If I can get such and such a position is my game the best? Having satisfied themselves by careful analysis that such is, the case, they proceed to shape that po sition, and so on steadily from posi tion to position.' " "Do you look far ahead in your com binations?" queried The Globe's rep resentative. "No; five, six or seven moves, being satined if it looks a winner that far to await developments. You see the Mor phy style of play looks altogether to one- side of the game, whereas now there is no chess player of note but plays both sides. Nearly all brilliant cobinations nowadays are undevel oped because the opponent discovers them, too late, perhaps, to save the game, but in time to block the sky rockets." "How about that Nuremberg game?" "I got the brilliancy prize not because the end was startling, but because of the continued brilliant possibilities and threats which I.asker foresaw and de feated, but with the loss of material and position, till my position won by fcrce." "Why are so few of the great play ers noted for brilliancy?" "Because in playing in tournaments they play for rank— for score— and cannot risk the loss of a game for meteoric coup. But the men who have little or no chance of a prize can af ford to take the chance of an unsound piece of fireworks coming to a success ful conclusion." And to illustrate these points he played over for the benefit of a large and Interested audience the Nuremberg game, and also his latest brilliancy prize game, won against Haiprin, of Vienna, explaining the developments and possibilities, and showing where the fireworks were continually immi nent, but continually blocked, though with vital loss.

They sent fa.cc stones to Hong Kong. Which from there were telegraphed over the world HUMANE ACTION? "Here is another exarnpie of the great broad-mindedness of Admiral Dewey. When the consuls of various neutral countries became frightened for fear Manila would be bombarded, the German consul went to Admiral Dewey at Cavße, and asked if he had any ob jections to this proceeding: To charter ing Spanish steamers, then lying ,n the river Pasig. placing en board the neu tial refugees ar.d anchoring these ves sels in between the neutral warships Admiral Dewey answered: 'Well why not? I do not make war against'wom en and children.' Even the Spanish ncn -combatants were granted this X Se i J he ™ ]y cnndßkm made was that those steamcis, which being in a blockaded port, belonged by right to the government of the United "states should return to Admiral Dewey a hands after the surrender of Manila. Furthermore he granted that in case of typhoons all of these steamers cf leluge might come over and anchor with the American fleet at Cavite" Asked if German military men gen erally, who had seen the run of events at Manila, held the same opinion of Ad miral Dewey, the major replied t] they did. The question was asked "What are going to be the future- re lations of Germany and the T _ ited States ln regard to possessions in the Eastern archipelago?" Maj. yon Sonnenberg replied: "German and American interests throughout the whole world run aiong parallel Unes, and parallel lines you know never meet. I do not see how' an ill feeling can result between the two great peoples." Questioned about the attitude of the native Filipinos towards the United States, Maj. yon Sonn-.nbers was em phatic: "The Filipinos will fight,' he said, "unless you give them what they want' I believe they will not lay down their arms until they get self-government" GONE TO THE WALL CHICAGO.
