Colored Article a Quarter of Cent.
Subject to State Regulation.
"Washington , April 4. At the conclu-
'Eton of a lively debate yesterday , the
senate passed the oleomargarine bill
by a vote of 39 to' 31. The discussion
was largely lu the nature 'ot a rein
forcement of arguments previously
advanced. Spooner ( Wls. ) made the
principal speech , maintaining that con
gress had ample authority to enact the
proposed legislation , because it was In
the Interest o ? the people , In an earn
est protest against the measure , Vest
jMo. ) held that congress was invading
the powers of the states. Scott ( W.
iVa. ) moved to recommit the measures ,
to.the committee , -holding that It 'Was
unsatisfactory to many senators 'and
ought to bo perfected. The motion
.was , ' .defeated 35 to 37. During 'the
afternoon a perfect flood of telegrams
poured into the senate from all parts
-of the country , urging senators either
; to support or to oppose the measure.
I The measure as passed by the senate -
ate differs in some respects from that
passed by the house of representa
tives. It provides that oleomargarine
and kindred products shall be subject
to all the laws and regulations of any
Elate or territory , or the District of
Columbia , into which they are trans
ported , whether in original packages
or otherwise ; that any person * who
cells oleomargarine'-and furnishes it
for the use of others except to his own
family , who shall mix with it any
artificial coloration that causes it to
look like butter , shall be held to be a
manufacturer and shall be subject to
the tax provided by existing laws ; that
upon oleomargarine colored to resem
ble butter a tax of 10 cents a pound
shall be levied , but on oleomargarine
not colored the tax shall be one-fourth
of 1 cent per pound ; that upon adult
erated butter a tax of 10 cents a pound
shall bo levied and upon all process
or renovated butter the tax shall be
w < None-fourth of 1. cent n pound. The
manufacturers of renovated butter
ehall pay an annual tax of $600 , the
. wholesale dealers shall pay a > tax of
$480 and the retail dealers a tax of
? 48 per annum. JTheSneasure provides
regulations for the collection of the
tax and prescribes minutely how the
various products are to bo prepared
for market.
. Measure Gives Higher Ranks and
Better Salaries In the Service.
Washington , April 4. The senate
bill to promote the efficiency of the.
revenue cutter service passed the
house yesterday by a vote of 135 to
49. The opponents of the measure
fought it to the last ditch. At the
very end they attempted a filibuster ,
but were swept aside by the over
whelming majority in favor of the
m'easure. The bill gives the com
manding officers of the revenue ser
vice relative rank as follows : Captains
tains , with majors in the army , and
lieutenant commanders in the navy ;

historical society s'r Chapter to" His
Indictment of Brown Men.
San Francisco , April 4. Cfneral
Funston was the guest of honor at a
banquet given last lilght by the Ohio
society. In response to n toast , he
said :
"After the first thieo or four months
of fighting the Filipinos forsook all
civilized methods of fighting and be
gan a guerrilla warfare of n sort un
paralleled In history. They killed di
rectly or by torture nearly 4,000 of
their own countrymen during the
years 1900 and 1901 because they
would not contribute money to sup
port the Insurgent cause. I know of
nearly 400 cases In my own district in
which natives were buried allvo and
many of these were women and chil
dren. They committed Inconceivable
atrocities on American soldiers who
fell into their hands. I had the pleas
ure of capturing and hanging fiends
guilty of this. The officers In the in
surgent artny ordered the assasslna
tlon of each other ( n order to hold
their places. Personally I ewe a good |
deal to Agulnaldo , but he told mo ho
had General 'lluna ' 'killed ' for no other
reason than that ho was coining to
the 'front 'too fast. The Filipinos are
absolutely Incapable of self-govern
mcnt today and I do not think the next
generation of the race will be. "

Atlantic City , N. J. , April 1. Twelve
hotels and moru than a score of small
buildings adjoining thu board \viuk
which Is built along the ocean edge
woio destroyed yesterday by a llio
which swept the bcacli front for two
long blocks , from Illinois avenue to
Now York avenue. The loss will ex
ceed $750,000. In this respect the
conflagration IB the most disastrous
that ban ever visited this city. The
loss will be only partially covered by
Insurance , as the rate of 5 < par cent
charged by insurance co'inpanlcs 6u
property here is regarded as almost
prohibitive. "Fortunately no - lives
were sacrificed , though probably a
dozen persons , were slightly injured
'and ' burned during the progress 'of the
fire. The origin of the fire la uii

hotel , which adjoins the baths at 1111

city Is guarded by a company of ml
litia , who were requested by the mu

in the prevention of looting. About
a.dozen men were arrested during thcj
day for robbery.
The hotels destroyed and their esti
mated losses are : The Luray and an

Norwood , $125,000 ; the New Holland ,
$30,000 ; Stratford , $40,000 ; Berkeley ,

losses lange" from $5,000 to $10.000.
Fire Rages for Five Hours.
The fire was discovered shortly
after 9 a. in. and for nearly live hours
the flames raged with such violence
as to threaten the city with destruc
tion. All of the burned buildings
were frame structures and the flames
'anned by a strong west wind swept
along the beach front with amazing
rapidity. The Tarleton hotel was
soon a pile of smouldering debris and
he flames fed on the small stores and
booths between Illinois and Kentucky
avenues until they reached the Strat-
brd hotel , which was soon enveloped.
The faery tongues leaped to the Berkc-
oy , adjoining , and in a few minutes
he New Holland , the Bryn Mawr , the
Svard and the Stlckney , all located
near the beach , were doomed. The
ocal flic department worked well and
willingly , but was unable to cope with
he flames and it was found necessary
o send to Philadelphia and Cainden
for aid. The former city sent three
engines and two came down from
amden. Their presence here was
of vast assistance to the local fire
men , but It was not until an hour after
their arrival that the fire 'could be
said to be thoroughly under control.
Just as the special train bearing the
Philadelphia firemen arrived , a burnIng -
Ing brand set fire to the center of
Young's pier , near Tennessee avenue.
Meantime the flames bad comniunl
catetl with the Rio Grande , the Mor
| vine and the Academy hotels. For a
few minutes Young's pier burned
fiercely , but the firemen succeeded in
confining the flames to Marine hall ,
which was situated in the center.'This
structure was entirely destroyed , hi
sectlng the pier.
Excitement at Hotels.
During the progress of the fire the
wildest excitement prevailed among !
the guests of the hotels , which later
became prey to the flames. With the
exception of the Tarleton and the
Bryn Mawr , all of the hostelrles were
I open for the season , and most of them
wore fairly well filled. In most cases
the guests had sufficient time to pack
their trunks and grips and those who
did not do this carried their persona
effects to places of safety in the best
manner possible under the clrcum
stances. The beach appeared to be
the most'suitable depository and many
nondescript heaps of clothing , bedding
ding- and furniture appeared In the
