Spanish Minister .Scored in
the Senate,
Tho Cubans Have Great Sympathy
In the Senate.
Washington, March 11. The
crowds which illlcd tho senate gal
lerlcs yesterday In anticipation of an
exciting Cuban debate were not dis
appointed. Two new phases of the
subject made their appearance, and
each afforded u debate which aroused
senutors and spectators to a high
state of Interest and excitement.
Lodge robe to a question of personal
privilege, and in vigorous words re
buked the Spanish minister, Scnor do
Lome, for ills recent criticisms of
senators. Teller added his opinion
that a repetition of the minister's
action should bo followed by his dis
missal. Gray held that wmatorlal
privileges and prerogatives should not
be strained toclosotho mouth of the
Spanish minister. Lodge did not
press for any definite action.
Tho incident was hardly closed
when the subject came up in another
form. Hoar had asked that his reso
lution postponing tho entire Cuban
subject until April 0, go over until
today. This aroused Sherman to
an energetic and feeling protest, He
declared that Hoar's resolution was a
retlectlon on tho commlttceon foreign
relations, and was an ctTort to slielvo
tho Cuban resolutions after weeks of
discussion and overwhelming votes In
both houses. Tho two venerable sen
ators, Sherman and Hoar, engaged In
a vigorous colloquy.
Morgan and other senators wero
drawn into tho personal conflict, and
for half an hour It waged, sometimes
with deep earnestness, but more often
with amusement eaubed by the energy
of tho white-haired participants.
Sherman finally withdrew his objec
tion, and Hoar's resolution went over,
but not before Hoar had made a brief
but telling speech against what he
termed tho meddling policy of con
gress In foreign questions.
Teller said tho rule was unvarying
against communications by a foreign
minister except through tho state de
partment. Twice had a foreign min
ister been sent homo for statements
otlcss importance than this.
"But considering tho circum
stances," added Teller, "had I been
in authority I would not sent him
homo for this offense, but I would
have had the secretary of state In a
most kindly way suggest thatrepltl
tlon of tho offense would lead to his
going homo."
There was no probability that Spain
would dissent In an offensive way to
tho passage of tho pending resolutions
Teller said Spain know wo had a right
to recognize tho belligerents. Spain
would naturally show some feeling,
but sho would not go to war. There
was a ripple of applause, which tho
vice-president checked, when Teller
referred to his sympathy with tho
"I would bo delighted," said lie, "to
hear that Havana had passed into the
hands of the Insurgents. I would bo
delighted If the insurgents had run
tho Spanish soldiers Into tho sea."
But, the senator added, ho felt no
irritation over the student ebullitions
In Spain. In conclusion Teller rigor
ously asserted that tho American
! people would not tolerate any dlc
' tation or criticism from foreign repre-
' Bentatlves accredited here.
, Chandler also thought tho Spanish
' minister had been guilty of an Im
propriety, nis references,6a!d Chand
ler, "were offensive,"
"I desire to say," Interposed Mor
gan, "that tho Spanish minister mis
quotes whnt I said on the floor of tho
"That illustrates the point I desire
to make," continued Chandler, pro
ceeding to quote .Honor do Lome's
references to ourjvar of tho rebellion.
It was uhsecmly lie said, for thoSpan
Islt minister to have written such n
communication. It could not bo
countenanced. Continuing, Chandler
expressed tho opinion that there was
entirely too mnch of an attempt at
outside Interference or advice.
The Tranavaall lflllbusterers.
London, March Ml. There was a
large crowd . about) the Bow-street
police court yestcway, the occasion
being tho formal arraignment of Dr.
LeanderS. JamcsohVand ids fellows

"Joe" Chamberlain, i
Newspaper representatives were
present by the score from many parts
of tho world. In tho ludlence were
the Duko of Abercorn,! chairman of
tho British Chartered South African
Company; Earl nnd Lady Coventry
and other people of equal importance,
and had it not been for tho stern de
meanor of tho chief justlco a popular
demonstration would have occurcd at
tho opening of court. Tho array of
counsel on both sides is formidable.
Sir John Bridge, chief magistrate,
presided. Sir Rlclmrd Webster opened
for tho crown. Ho dwelt in forcible
language upon the gruvlty of tho
charge against the prisoners, contend
ing that tho Sonth African republic
was a friendly stato within the mean

"I cannot toll you that wo nrc

Tho address of Sir Richard Webster
was listened to with great interest.

Grand Opera house was unablo again

half of those holding tickets. Some
delegates to the Republican state con
vention oven were crowded out.
Senator-elect Foraker was mado
permanent chairman. The platform
declares strongly for protection and
rielproclty,and denounces the present
Democratic administration as the
most destructive and ritaistmiw In
tho history of our country. It has
not only disappointed the expecta
tions of tho country, but Justly for
feited tho conlldencoand support of
Us own party.
Last evening Senator Foraker paid
a glowing tribute to Major MclClulcv
as n neighbor, as a citizen, nsusoldlor,
us a member of congress, as a f minor
or tho McKinley tarlt bill, and "tho
foremost advocate of tho protective
tariff," as governor of. Ohio, and
finally, as the "ideal American states
man, the typical American leader and
tho veritable American Idol." In
conclusion, Senator Forakor declared
that other states wero calling upon
Ohio's sou to accept the highest honor,,
at tho nation's gift, nnd that Ohio
could not lead the column. "All we
can do," ho said, "is to Join tho pro
Colonol W. C. Cooper, an cx-membor

The platform favors the return of
tho government to tho debt-paying
policy, by increasing the revenues. It
declares for u currency of gold, silver
nnd paper, with which to measure our
exchange, that shall bo as sound as
the government iuid as untarnished
as Its honor. And to that end we
favor bimetallism, and domain tho
iiso of both gold and sliver as standard
money, either In accordance with a
ratio to be fixed by International
agreement, If that can lo obtained, or
under such restrictions and such pro
visions to bo determined by legis
lation as will secure maintenance of a
parity of values of tho two metals, so
that purchasing and debt-paying
power of -tho dollar, whether silver,
gold or paper, shall Ikj all times bo
equal. Tho platform pledges tho sup
port of tho state to McKinley In tho
national convention.

When the Joint assembly convened
Speaker Blanford Issued orders that

The presiding olllcor ruled that tho

On tho basis of $100,000, the price

get back taxes prior to tho year 1801,
of $9!l 13. For tho year 1801 this county

In Salem, Mr. Clierrlngton, who
stated that ho was not the A. P. A.
candidate but was endorsed by
Republicans and Democrats, got a
large Republican 'voto, but his elec
tion Is not considered ns a party vic
tory for tho Republicans. Mr. Byrd,
a Democrat, was supported by tho
majority of Republican politicians.
In Portland the avowed A. P. A,
candldato was defeated Ixjcuuso ho
was supported by tho Simon-Sours-Dolph
faction, and tho old political
machine was defeated. Thoy were
spending monoy frcoly for Mr. Flnloy,
It was a .blow to ring and machine
politics, nnd when such politicians as
Simon and "Prof." Roby undertake to
elect a candldato for school director,
tho people will always be Justified In
defeating them.
It was not an A. P, A. victory, or a
Republican victory at Salem. It
was not an A. P. A defeat nor a
Republican defeat at Portland. Poll
tics should cut no llguro In our public
school management. It will cut less
figure In future than It has in the
past. ,

Tho Sunday Orcgonlan prints tho
Senator Simon, with tho aid of
roputublo citizens, had prepared a
now charter for tho city of Portland,
and Incorporated in It a legislative
bill to secure Its enactment Into law.
It's main purposes wero two-fold:
First, it simplified and centralized
tho city govcrniucntjsccondt effected
a saving In the municipal expenditure
of about $180,000 por aunutn, of which
$03,000 was for salaries nlono. Among
other things It reduced tho mayor's
annual salary from $5,000 to $3,000,
Tho entire body of city olllce-holdors
took alarm. Thoy wore Joined by
District Attornoy Hume; whose
enormous emoluments were threat
ened in a similar bill, Introduced by
Senator McGinn.
So long as Simon und McGinn con
trolled tho district attorney's. oftlco
and Mr. Humo was tliolr deputy there
was no talk of cutting down tho fees
of tho ofllce.
The oftlco of district attorney at
Portland will bo put on a reasonable
salary but It will not be done nt tho
demand of Simon und McGinn for
porsonul spltowork. "Enormous
emoluments" sounds well, but
"enormous demagogs" fits bettor.

The school house in district No. 25,

being a total loss.
