Cullom began by saying that while he was not disposed to criticise Pres ident Cleveland, lie had hoped for a more positive expression of the true American -continental policy from him, Culloin spoke.ot the record of Spain for cruelty and oppression: both in the home treatment of her o.vn people at home up to the present century- and in her policy toward the provinces on this continent. Spain, continued to be, he said, what she has always been, a robber nation. The time had come, lie de clared, for this nation to announce the speedy termination of Spanish con trol of the Island at the gateway of the Mexican gulf, necessary alike to tlie welfare of these Islands and the people of the, United States. The Cubans could never be conquered and the war of extermination must stop. Cuba is already lost to Spain, Cul lom claimed. The American people were coming to consider tho Cuban situation as a groat political conti nental question. It was the duty of the United States to use Its powers to declare that no "charnel-house of ruin" shall be continued in West In Indian waters.

UPRISING CONGRESS Senate Pushes Immigration- ! 'House Considers Allen Ownership of Land. Washington, Dec. 11. The 83nato got Into the regular channel of busi ness Thursday, taking up the Immi gration bill and partly perfecting it, and also hearing the first of the speeches on Cuba, those of Cullom and Calk The disposition to put throngh the Immigration bill was shown by the defeat of u motion by Gibson of Maryland to postpone the mcasuro until after jho holidays.

The bill was not passed upon 'up to tho time of adjourumcnl, but the senate agreed to what Is generally known as the Lodge bill, as a subsltute to tho house measure. Theubstltutc requires that all Im migrants, over tho ago of 14 years, shall be able to read and write their native language and shall be required tOuread and write In the presence of anHJnltcd States official certain lines of tho United States constitution.

Scranton of Pennsylvania, from the committee on territories, then called up the bill to amend the act forbidd ing alien ownership of land in tho territories. The bill sought to euable aliens to acquire tltlu to real'property under mortgage foreclosure By tho terms of tho bill, they must dispose of such title within 10 years. nepburn caused something of a flurry by undertaking to arraign tho Buhporters on the ground that they propose to go back on tho plank of tho platform on alien ownershshlp. nia remarks were particularly directed against the Populists, 1 who ho said, after declaiming against alien owner ship, wero now In favor of allowing aliens to acquire all thcyhad hitherto declared should belong only to Ameri can citizens. Catron of New Hampshire, the sponsor for the bill, declared that tho bill did not permit alien ownership. It only permitted aliens In certain contingencies to control real property for ten years. Its purpose, ho said, was to enable the people of tho tcr rl tori ties to get some of s benefits of capital. Capital was needed to de velop tho resources of tho territory, and under tho present law no alien could own a dollar's worth of real property, andlno capital could bo In vested. He admitted that a combina tion of Populists and Democrats had carried New Mexico at tho lato elec tlon. nepburu declared that If that were the case, tho people of New Mexico should have an object lesson. They Bhould be taught to understand that their territory cannot grow uuder populism, and declared that unleu, by tho term of tH0 N' " Wfls rc strlcted to t he protection of foreign investments in mining claims which could not bo developed by private .antral, ha would ODDOSO It. Murphy, delegate from Arizona, said no great national question waa involved In the bill. Aliens should not acquire ownership under it. It waa simply a question of wbettoer th territories should be enabled to invito foreign capital to develop their re sources. It would be but simple Just ice to give tho people of tho territories this opportunity to obtain capital needed. After some further good-natnrcd bantering, the bill was defeated, CO to 73.

Economy is promoted by the use of Royal leavening agents. The official analysts report it to be 33 greater in leavening strength than the other powders. It has four times thc.Jeav-' ening strength of many of the cheap alum powders. Royal never fails to make good bread, bis cuit and cake, so that there is no flour, 3eggs or butter spoiled and wasted in heavy, sour and uneatable food. "" It never makes food that is unwholesome. Its use is a guarantee from the danger of alum and lime which are present in the low-grade cheap powders. Do dealers attempt, because times are dull, to work ofT old stock, or low-grade brands of baking powder?' De cline to buy them. During these times all desire to be economi cal, and Royal is the most economical as. well as the most whole- some baking powder. - r " . I HOY At.
