Ho engaged in n oolloouy f with Senator Hoar in regard to tho effect which the resolutions could have, during which he brought out tho point that tho salo of arms to in surgents was not unlawful now aud could not be any moro unlawful in case tho resolutionsshould be adopted. "I should have hesitated," said Mr. Hill, to have voted for 11 joint reso lution which would have required the president's action within ten days, iiut the resolutions are safe because they merely express our opinion and hi nil no one but ourselves, although thev will be received with respect by the executive and will have their moral effect through the country and tho world, They are in accordance with preeodont. aud in my opinion congress should go thus far, but no further. Hecognition of belligerency is made on the theory that a whole people cannot be prosecuted for trea son. The Cubans now hold three fourths of tho island. Prisoners of war should be exchanged. Were we to stand by and see them guillotined, garotled, suot or executetl in any other way.' J ho resolutions could give nojolfense to Spaiu. Wo could not do less. I ho ouestion of recogm tion of belligerency addressed itself to the uisception of all foreign powers. It could do no harm in this instance and might tend to stay this cruel war fare. Shall wo not, he asked, rid tho war of its infamy, degradation and brutality? That is all theso resolu tions proposed to do except tho hist, to tho pusilanimous terms of which I can never give my consent. Who is there so craven that ho would abandon the ideas under which wo unfurled tho flag of freedom to tho world? Cuba is to day resisting taxation without repre sentation. It is the story of the American Revolution over again. I hero were Tones then as now whoso sympathies were with aristocracy and monarchy,and nowjas then they will be crushed by tho force of an enlight ened people determined to be free. Tho conflict between republicanism and monarchism is irrepressible, and wili go on. God grant that Cuba may succeed. If sho does not. let us hav'o the consciousness that we have done our duty- Sherman answered all the objections to theso resolutions in one terse epi gram. "If war does not exist in Cuba whoro outside of holt do?s it exist?' "It was idlo," he said, ' for Spain to declare that war did not exist when, in fact, warfare was going - on morn atrocious than any in the historv of the Dark Ages. Continuing, Mr. Sherman Biiid that it was impossible that the present terrib'e eonditiou of affairs should continue much longer, Hero Mr. Sherman turned aside for i tribute to President Cleveland. The senator said there were differences of political opinion between him and Mr. Lieveianci. unt, lie added, "no one doubts his courage: no one doubts his fidelity to tho flag of our countrv: no one doubts that. '' The other most notable speech of the debate was that of Morgan of Ala barna Monday and Tuesdav. He main taincd that a state of open, horrid war existed in L.uba a war involving the property, rights, liberties aud lives of American citrcus who happen to be there. The lino of action for congress to take, ho said, was to declare "that open war existed in Cuba, and that tho laws of war should applv to it. If neither party to tho struggle in Cuba could defend the rights and property of American citizens who were there. then ho proposed that the government of tho United States should intervene to protect them. He answered tho standard argument of tho opponents of the resolutions, that the rebels have no capitol. thus: How many places of liabitationldul tho government of the United States and tho Continental Congress have during tho Revolutionary war? They li ad no less than nino capitals, and the IJritish government could not chase them down to cover. " And to! Hale of Maine he said: "The Spaniard had neither mercy nor consideration in his heart for tho "poor people of Cuba- for thoso poor mulatocs and negroes and vagabonds described by Minister I'D lome. They have no recognition at tho court of Spam. They never had, and never will have. And tho Spaniards quarrel with any American citizen (particu larly if he resides in a negm commu nity) who stands up in the senate of tno united Jitalcs and demands for these people all the rights of man. The senator from Maine negatives that demand, and is not willing that they shall be free men in Cuba: and I take it for granted that he is not willing they shall bo free men here, either, un less, by hook or crook, tnev pan be ; made to vote the Republican ticket." ! the president has not fullv do- would have felt souien mil embarrassed ifjho two houses of congress had forced him to act within a limited time by tho adoption of a joint resolu tion, tno leaders of both parties ro : aid to bo willing to leave the presi dent free.? now that they liavo made IftMlO'S KMl.l.s cure their own record in favor of the!
