The speech of the United States secretary of the treasury, Mr. Shaw, at Pittsburg at the banquet April 20 in celebration of the late General Grant's birthday has thus far passed unnoticed by the London press, with the exception of the Olobe, which Is exceedingly wrathy at auch a responsible politician "tickling the eara of groundlings with a speech full of menace to America's only friend among the powers of Europe. After quoting the speech ths Olobe continues: We are not greatly concerned either for the threat or the crude vulgarity which causes Mr. Shaw to apply it to a particular power, but what Impresses us with a sense of American cadence Is the manner In which the absurd speech was received. Were an Engllxh minister of Mr. Shaw's position to make a similar allusion to a foreign power all the chancellories of Europe would be convulsed. But England heeds It not a whit and the rest of the world shrugs its shoulders and talks about diplomacy In shirtsleeves.

U seriously UU DENOUNCES GENERAL SMITH Representative Sibley Wants f resident to Give Him a Dishonorable Discharge. CALLS SMITH A DISGRACE TO THE ARtfY rrnnirlvanlsn Vehemently Condemns the Methods EmsloT ei ana) the Departare from the Keg alar Rales of Army. WASHINGTON, April 28 Representative Sibley of Pennsylvania created something of a sensation In the house today during the general debate on the agricultural bill by denouncing General Jacob H. Smith for the orders he Issued In the Samar cam paign. He declared General Smith waa a disgrace to (he uniform he wore, and he ex pressed the hope that the president would strip him of bis uniform within forty-eight hours. Mr. Sibley's: speech waa enthusiastically applauded by the democrats and was re ceived with some evidences of approval on the republican side. The speech was con sidered the more remarkable Is that it came from a republican who left the dem ocratic party on the issues raised by the Spanish war and who since has been an ardent expansionist. Mr. William, demo crat, of Mississippi, Indorsed what Mr. Sib ley said. Curtis Defends Funston. Mr. Curtis of Kansas made a brief but fer vent defense of General Funston against the criticism to which he had been subjected. "The people of Kansas," he began, "are proud of the brave and daring record of gal lant Fred Funston. (Applause on the re publican aide.) He has been criticised here for an act, which for daring and conception and execution, ranks with the greatest feats of srms he captured the new Georgo Washington Agulnaldo. "If another had accomplished what Gen eral Funston did," he said, "the democrats would have made him their candidate for president." He called attention to the fact that his promotion had been recommended by General Wheaton and General McArthur, "both soldiers of the civil war, soldiers who knew more of wsr and rules of war than all the politicians in this country combined." "And his commission," he added, "waa signed by, the greatest president we have ever had the soldier, statesman snd mar tyr, William McKlnley." (Applause.) Mr. Sibley, republican, of Pennsylvania, said he had been an expansionist and de fended the policy of the administration in the acquisition of the Philippines. Duty and honor, he said. Justified our position there. The commercial welfare of the nation demanded that we should control that archipelago, which stands as the gats way to the oriental world. Sees Vision of Herod. He then continued: When I have heard the statements made that we were cruel in the conduct of that war I have thought, perhaps, the partisan was speaking. Hut when I have read, as 1 have within the past forty-eight hours, that a general wearing the uniform of the army of the United 8tates, one who stands under the shadow of .our flag, Is- but to leave It a howling wilderness and to kill all above 10 years of sge, thn It seems to me that humanity must-have marched backward for eighteen centuries and that Herod again appears. I have read of Tlmour, the Tartar: I have read of Achilles, I have read of tha Saracen scourge, but I thank Ood that since the tragic scene on Calvary It has taken In h teen centuries to produce a Smith. I have read of the water cure. I believed that It was exaggerated. Can any man whose blood Bounds in hla pulses, any man who has read his Bible or who has been reared at the knee of a Christian woman. Justify the perpetration of such cruelties upon another man who wears the guise and the image of his Creator? And yet we hear this man at tempting to Justify acts bv which men are pumped so full of water as nearly to drown them and brought back to life by mumping tnem over tne stomach with butts of muskets. That Is not civiliza tion; that is not Christianizing the world. Wants Smith Discharged. T hope the president of the I'nited States will nave tne courage, upon what the man admits, to discharge him dishonorably from me service mat ne nas aisgracea. (Ap plause.) The conference report on the Chinese exclusion bill was adopted without debate, This sends it to the president. IS FUGITIVE IN MEXICO Ex-Councilman of St. Louis Is Locked Ip la Guadalajara Jail.

TALK OF A SPECIAL BILL FOR NEBRASKA to Possibility of Lands In Rosebud Reservation Be In a Opened Refore Summer and Possibly Sot Then. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, April 28. (Special Tele gram.) "Fences on public domain are to come down on July 1," said a gentleman who had a talk today with President Roosevelt. "No matter how much pressure Is brought to bear on the Interior depart ment I am fully satisfied that the president mill not permit the order of Secretary Hitchcock to be modified," said Tbe Bee's informant. Tomorrow the delegation of stockgrow- ers who have been here for nearly a week. headed by Barttett Richards of Ellsworth. Neb., will be presented to the president by Senators Dietrich and MIUaM. Mr. Richards will ask the chief executive to postpone the removal of the fences until late In the fall and It will be Interesting to note the result of this request In view of the statement above. Today Messrs. Richards, Modisett, Hill, Ferdon snd Harris, representing the big cattle growers of the west, finished their hearing before tbe house committee on public landa. Acting Chairman Mondell arked Mr. Rich ards If it would not be well to attempt spe cific legislation for Nebraska, providing the delegation In congress from that state could unite on some measure. Mr. Richards said he had been contemplating snch a bill, in view of tbe opposition that seemed to exist against a general land-leasing bill and his associates had about concluded to ask for relief along the lines suggested. Shallenbarscrr Declares Himself. Representative Shallenberger, who Is a cattle owner himself, when asked If he would favor such a measure, said: "I would object to any plan of leasing the public domain that doesn't have in It Its essential feature a homestead or Homebuilding Idea. I am opposed to any bill which contem plates that because a corporation or Indi vidual having large private holdings should therefore be entitled to lease corresponding large tracts of government land, as this would tend to perpetuate the owning of tbe public domain. I would favor a measure for the leasing of public lands In small hold ings sufficient to support a man and fam ily, and it Is well known It requtres a larger number of acres to support a man west of the 100th meridian than east of It. "A bill along these lines or similar onea. leasing the school lands In Nebrsska to settlers has proven entirely acceptable and the state has withdrawn all lta school lands from sale, preferring to lease rather than sell." Delay In Opening: Rosebud. Senator Gamble stated today that an agreement had been reported whereby tbe Rosebud treaty bill, opening tbe lands in Gregory county, 8. D., to settlement, would be taken up at the close of tha morning business tomorrow and be bad no doubt as to lta passage. "From papers received here," said the senator from South Da kota, "somebody has a mlsconcer.'lon aa to what is still to be done before the presi dent Issues orders opening the land to set tlement. Before the order can be Issued a bill must pass both bouses of congress and become a law. This haa not been accom plished. After that the secretary of the Interior must have the lands surveyed and monumented. Then the president will Issue bis order opening the reservation to settlement. At best the order cannot be Issued before summer and it may go until fall. There will be much to do before the Rosebud reservation la thrown open to the public." Lincoln Is to bave a practically new public building, and If Supervising Arch I tect Taylor's plans are carried out It will be colonial In style and will occupy the center of the postodlce park. Instead of In the unsightly place it now occupies. Just as soon as the public building bill becomes a law Supervising Architect Taylor will probably go to Lincoln and look over the situation, With a view of giving Nebraska's capital a building aucb as It deaerves. Mr. Burkett haa had a number of conferencea with Mr. Taylor and he la enthusiastic over the prospects for the new building, which he believes can be built for $300,000, the amount the omnibus bill carries. Why Plattamouth Was Left. Explaining why Platiauioutb was left out of the bill, Mr. Burkett said: "The com mlttre on public buildings and grounds passed a, rule that they would not appropri ate money for a public building In citl that had less than 10,000 inhabitants unlesa the site had been previously donated or It was headquarters of a revenue collectlou district, or seat of a state university Plattsmouth occupied none of these posi tions and so It could not get sn appropria tion. I labored earnestly with the com mittee in behalf of Plattsmouth and filed a brief that waa voluminous in character, but the rule shut ms out. 'Better luck next time' Is a motto that may be ap pllcable here." Senator Allison baa returned from Iowa, where he went on private business. He la enthusiastic over conditions as hs found them. He said that the country was in splendid shape and big crops of wheat were promised unless something unforaeen should Interfere. "Politically," he said, "Iowa is In a grand condition and Just as soon as the congressional conventions are over you will aee tbe old state trying to outdo the victory of 1901."

April 2S -(Speclal.)-Oover-nor Siivage has withdrawn from the ' race for renominatlon, his formal an nouncement having been made publlo lata this afternoon. This movement haa not been unexpected, and the general expres sion Is that 11 relieves tbe governor's friends from much embarrassment. The for mal announcement is ss follows: "Executive Chamber, Lincoln. Nehrasks. "It now seems to be the proper time to announce as final my decision In regard to beliijt a candidate for renomlnutlon for the office of governor. "After thoughtful consideration of the matter I have concluded it best not to fur ther embarrass my loyal friends and more especially my par'y by remaining longer In the field, thus standing In the way of some one w ho could bring more peace and harmony Into the convention. 'In my official capacity I have tried to give the state an honest, strong and eco nomical administration. Looking back over the year already spent as Nebraska's chief . executlve.l would not, bad 1 the power, change one Important official act. "My action In commuting the sentence of J. 8. Hartloy met strong disapproval of many, mom of whoru, are less conversant with the facts than I and to most of whom I give credit for honesty In their opinions. I now state frankly that with all the results of that act before me, I would commute his aentence today were It still undone. "Fully appreciating the honor of being the governor of a great state, and of hav ing the opportunity to serve the people through many avenues, under existing cir cumstances I hereby announce myself not a candidate for office. "Hoping to see some strong, honorable republican nominated and elected aa my suecesHor, and, 'with malice toward nons and charity for all,' 1 am, reenectfuMv, "E. P. SAVAGE." tSapertrd to Cons Later. While the elimination of Governor Savage from the list of candidates before tha rs publicsn state convention was hardly ex pected at this time It Is known that con sldersblo Influence haa been exerted upon him by political frlenda and InCoentla! party leader to bring about this result, which wss confidently expected would be accomplished before the tlms set for tha nomination. Ever since the pardon of Bartley waa an nounced tbe republican preas of tha status has been almost unanimous In declaring, that tbe governor had by that actios made his nomination politically Impossible and the decided stand taken by many of tha most outspoken party orgaaa Indicated that iven If nominated he would lack the hearty support necessary to election. Not withstanding the adverse conditions Gover nor Savage had up to within a very few days rspeatedly reiterated his Intention to stand before the convention and ask an en dorsement of his official record. His origi nal announcement of hla candidacy was made nearly a year ago, within a few montha after he had aucceeded to tbe exe cutive chair, vacated by the promotion of Governor Dietrich to the United States senate. Storle Which Have Been Hlfe. Following upon bis release of Bartley, gossip was rife that the consideration had been promises of politics! support from people Interested In Bartley's freedom, In cluding certain large railroad corporations. When It became apparent that theae prom ises were not to be fulfilled Intimations of a new campaign upon tbe issue of railroad taxation came from the executive mansion, but while the plan outlined was disclaimed by the governor aa coming from him, ha yet expressed 'his sympathy with the idea. Another atory waa to the effect that Bart ley and his friends would startle the state on tbe eve ot the republican convention by paying Into the state treasury tbe cash, tbs $200,000, for embezzlement of which ha bad been convicted, relying on the momentum of tbe reimbursement to carry the gover nor Into unanimous renominatlon. That thla story was the work of mora or less fervi' paginations waa plainly discernible all the time, and is clinched by tbe gov ernor's withdrawal. What effect the new turn will have en the political chessboard Is not easy to fore cast. People here think the atmosphere will be clarified noticeably within the next few days. 7ive or six aspirants for gov ernor are already In the field and may be expected to Increase their aotivlty. None of the county conventions bavs yet been held and only a few bave been called. The atats convention Is set for June 18 aad la sure to precipitate a brisk competition for Governor Savage's succession.
