Thinks This Government Should
Expel Spaniards From Cuba
Washington, Dec. 11. Public In
terest In tlie Cuban question was
shown by a full attendance In the
galleries of tlie senate to bear the
speech of Senator Cullom, of which lie
lia8glyen notice. Before he was rec
ognized for a speech, petitions for the
recognition of the independence of
Cuba were presented.
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.

ward for saving her from the slaugh
ter," said Cullom, "but free Cuba is
the reward. Means must bo found to
settle the Cuban question speedily,
and If other means fall we may con
sider properly the fair purchase of
The senator received close attention
throughout. Uo offered a resolution
declaring that the "Extinction of
Spanish title and the termination
of Spanish control of the Islands at
the gateway of the Gulf of Mexico
are necessary."

Senate Pushes Immigration-

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.
Only thirteen votes, nil Democrats,
were given Infayor of the postpone
ment. The proposition served to In
volve -Chandler, Lodge and Gibson In

time of adjourumcnl, but the senate
agreed to what Is generally known as
the Lodge bill, as a subsltute to tho
house measure.

sworn in immediately after tho read
ing of tho Journal.
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

the case, tho people of New Mexico
should have an object lesson. They

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
After some further good-natnrcd
bantering, the bill was defeated, CO
