WASHINGTON , Feb. 7. ror two hours or more today the senate had the resolution de claratory of n ppllcy o this government In the Philippines under discussion , but no > ote 'was reached and the resolution went finally to the calendar. In accordance with the notice given yes terday , Jlr , Tlllman addressed the senate upon the resolution , making n characteristic nnd picturesque argument. Ho maintained that a clear , explicit nnd direct resolution ought to bo adopted and not ou > i that was meaningless nnd Inconeequentlal. He pre dicted that dlro results would follow the ratification of the treaty unless the United States government treated the Filipinos with firmness nnd gave them self-govern ment. Mr. Lodge of Massachusetts followed with a strong reply to Mr. Tlllman In which he stated the conditions ns they confront the United States In the Philippines. The Indian appropriation bill was then taken up nnd was not completed when the senate adjourned. A joint resolution for the printing of the report of Robert P. Porter on his Investigations In Cuba nnd Porto lllco , wna adopted. A senate bill granting a right-of-way through the Indian Territory to the Choctaw , Oklahoma & dull Railroad company was passed. Mr. Spooner of Wisconsin presented the credentials ot Senator-elect Quartos. Mr. Tilltnan of South Carolina , In ncord- ance with notice given , rose to address the Bcnato on the McEnery resolution.

" Mr. Tlllman then addressed the senate- , He said In opening that he had listened to the dubato upon the treaty , but without taking part in It , Ho had contented him- Bclfwith occasional little forays and with indulging In a little guerrilla warfare. Mr. Allison tried to sccute consideration for the Indian appropriation bill , but Mr. Mason of Illinois took the floor to insist upon a vote on the McEnery resolution. In the course of his remarks ho referred to an agreement made to have n vote upon the resolution , saying that the treaty was adopted as a result of the agreement , Mr , Jones of Arkansas asked when the agree ment was made , Mr , Mason Bald It Mas not A TIIAVILIMJ HAI.KSMAN I.itflit J'rulne li > ( lie L'ooK * nn ( In ; Itoiul.

LEGAL STATUS OF GEN. OTIS Unlfcit Snton Troops ljiiiio\\ irt' l It ) the Protocol tii Miilndilti Order In InliinilH. WASHINGTON , Keb. 7. Fho authorities of the Stnto nnd War departments were In consultation todnj on the legal status of General Otis In view of the protocol , which binds tbo American fortes to maintain the status quo in the Philippines till after the ratification ot the treat } by Spain and the United States. The fact that the treaty must be ratified by both parties to the con tract wns momentarily lost sight of by many persons yesterday In the first flush of ex citement over Its ratification by the senate , and it wns commonly remarked by army ofll- cers and bthora in the department thnt the Philippines "now being American terrltor } , " General Otis was at liberty to handle the Filipinos ns lie would an Indian outbreak. The fact , however , Is thnt the Philippines do not become American territory till after the treaty has been ratified by the Spanish cortes. It was said at the State department todiy that while tbo Americana are. still bound by the protocol , 'there ' Is nothing In that docu- n.ent to prevent the American commander from maintaining order hi the Islands , and ho In fact Is compelled by the terms of the prltocol tn do so. In carrying out this obli gation ho la not confined to Manila , but ma > extend his lines wherever necessarj to preserve serve- order or prevent the lenssembllng and further preparation of any persons who have violated the peace agreement or v , ho nro preparing to do HO again. Tills politic state ment of the legal authorities of the depart ment "was supplemented by the brusque re mark of one of the nrmjodlccrs who was a party to the conference- that "General Otis' Jurisdiction , extends beyond his outposts 1,300 yards with the sights up , wherever he happens to be. " The decision regarding the protocol and the status quo In the Philippines , it Is said , applies also to the case of Agonclllo and his agents In this country and In Canada. They are not citizens of the United States In re bellion , whatever -else they may be. As a matter of fact , Uicj are not receiving any particular attention beyond being kept under surveillance by tho'eecret service men , so that hands can be laid upon them whenever they are wanted. This latter contingency applies of course only to the two very lonely THIplnos remaining in Washington , one sick and both badly scared. As to Agaucillo's statement in Montreal , that he bad gone there because he could cummunlcate better with his fiiends around Manila , It was pointed out toda > by the authoiltles having control of the wires , that Agonclllo would be no better off in Mon treal U'an he was here , as the Manila censor ser would take care of anything filed for him the ) e , although ho of course can com municate with his friends In Hong Kong. SENTENCE OF GENERAL EAGAN Forinnl Decree of Six Yeiirn' SIIHIICII- Hlon Announced li > the I'rvNldent. WASHINGTON , Feb. 7. The president today caused to bo Tiromulgntod the sen tence In the case of General Charles P. Eagan. The court-martial sentence wiis dismissal from the army and thu president has commuted this to six years' suspension from duty , which covers the remainder of the time prior to General Kagan'e retire ment In January , 1805. The following Is the text of the order of the president The accused , after a trial by a court- martial composed of officers of high rank and , distinguished sorvlcfis , lias been found KUllty of conduct unworthy an olllcer hold- lug a commission of the United States acid obnoxious in the highest degree to the dis cipline and good order of the military es tablishment. Such behavior Is especially deserving of condemnation In an ofllcer hold Ing high rank In the army and charged with the performance of difficult and Important administrative dutlwi In n time of great public emergency nnd from whom , when subjected to adverse ciltlclsm , nn unusual degree of constraint and self-control Is ev peoted , The pioceedlngs , findings and sentence * In Iho case of Brigadier General diaries P , Kagan , commissary general of subsidence , U , S A , nre therefore approved. In view , however , of his gallant conduct In battle upon more than ono occasion , which mer ited and has received the warm commenda tions of Ills superiors , and or his long and honorable record of service , extending over n period surpassing In duration th-a usually alloted to < i generation ; having ugapl also to the mitigating circumstances which were developed during the trial of the cabc and In deference V3 the recommendation of clemency submlttol in his behalf , the sen tence Imposed by the court Is commuted to suspuisU/n flora Tank aid duty for six years.
