Spooner Bill Brought Up to
Sidetrack Canal Measure.
Great Povrcr Placed In Hands of
President Talbert Unearths AI-
i . .
leced Pension ScnndaL
"WASHINGTON. May 25. Discussion of
the Spooner Philippine bill was continued
in the Senate today by Morgan. ; On the
general question of the ownership and
government by the United States of the
Philippine Islands, he was in accord with
Spooner and Lodge, but he regarded the
pending bill as unwise and dangerous leg
islation, because of the great power It
placed in the hands of the President. He
was satislled, howevtr, that .the measure
would not be passed by this Congress, and
declared that It was "being used as a foil
to thrut aside the Nicaragua Canal b.lL
Much of his 3peech was devoted to the
canal bill, and to denunciation of the ef
forts to prevent its enactment at this
The House devoted 'two hours today to
the consideration of the Alaska civil gov
ernment bill without completing It. The
session from noon until adjournment was
devoted under the rule to private penaon
bills. Talbert, who abandoned his ob
structive tactics a few weeks ago, was
again In evidence today. After ISO bills
had been favorably acted upon the House
in committee of the whole, Talbert blocked
their passage in the House with the point
of no quorum.
Among the bills favorably acted upon to
day were the Senate bills 'to pension the
widow of the late Captain Grldley, who
commanded the Olympla in the battle of
Manila, to $50 per month; the widow of
the late Commodore W. S. Meade at $40
per month, and the widow of the late
General M. F. Force, of Ohio, at $50 per
Morgan Continues the Philippine De
bate in the Senate.
WASHINGTON, May 25. The Senate
today convened at 11 A. M. Galllnger (Rep.
N. H.) presented the conference report on
a bill granting to Mrs. Guy V. Henry, the
widow of General Henry, a pension. The
conferees reduced the amount of the pen
sion from $100 to $75 a month. The report
was agreed to.
Carter (Rep. Mont.) presented the cer
tificate of Governor Smith appointing Hon.
Martin Maglnnls Senator to All the va
cancy occasloped by the resignation oi
Senator Clark, and to which Clark also
had been appointed by Lieutenant-Governor
Spriggs, In the absence of the Gover
nor, This certificate was In practically the
same words as Acting Governor Spriggs
certificate appointing Clark to succeed
himself. In accordance with a request
made by Senator Carter, the certificate
"was laid upon the table.
As soon as this disposition was made.
Chandler (Rep. N. H.) presented a resolu
tion providing for the reference of the
credentials of the rival Senators to the
committee on privileges and elections. This
resolution was also lait on the table, the
understanding being that It will be called
up next Wednesday.
Morgan (Dem. Ala.) Introduced a bill to
punish crimes against the United States
.not committed within the States. He said
the bill seemed to unlock the difficulty the
Government was in now as to the extra
edition of an offender from the United
States to Cuba. The bill was referred
to the judiciary committee.
The Philippine bill was then taken up,
and Morgan addressed himself to it. He
agreed with Lodge (Rep. Mass ) and
Spooner (Rep. "Wis.) on many phases of
their contention as to the Philippines, but
as to the pending bill, he differed from
them on some Constitutional points ana
as to the necessity for, and wisdom of,
the enactment of the measure. He agreed
that the Philippines were ours, and that
the title of the United States to the
islandB under the treaty of Paris was
clear and beyond any question.
Morgan declared no promises had ever
been made by our military and naval com
manders to recognize the Tjgal Govern,
meat. In fact, no such government ex
isted In the Philippines when Dewey ar
rived there and took Manila. At that
time Agulnaldo was in Singapore, enjoy
ing the pay for his treachery be had re
ceived from the Spaniards. He de
nounced Agulnaldo as a political adven
turer and traitor, and asserted that "we
would have disgraced ourselves before all
the nations of the earth had we yielded
to the demand of Agulnaldo and his fol
lowers to loot the Islands, and especlally
Discussing the ratification of the treaty
of Paris, Morgan eald:
"I was in favor of the ratification of the
treaty of Paris, and still adhere to that
conviction of duty. I believe It Is the
moet advantageous treaty, next to our
treaty of annexation with Mexico, that
the United States has made In the 19th
century. I am proud of the motics and
the heroic support by our Army and
Navy that forced this treaty from an
arbitrary, cruel, Spanish-Bourbon des
potism and again opened the way for
our republican Institutions. I welcome
this open door to the people of this coun
try, especially in their honorable strug
gle to repair the losses and humiliation
of the war between the states, and I
honor the President and our commission
ers for leading us in this course of Na
tional duty to a glorious result.
"I am proud that our distinguished party
leader, Mr. Bryan, came to Washington
to Implore the Democracy of the Senate
to ratify the treaty of Parte and b d us
not to stultify ourselves with needless
fears, because Its ratification would open
to the absolutists another opportunity to
test the courage and sincerity of the
grand Democracy."
Morgan attacked the bill as concen
trating all the power over the Philippine
in the President of the Un'ted States. It
was legalizing absolutism and took away
from the Senate the power to confirm the
appointments of the President.
Morgan made a long argument In sup
port of the Nicaragua Canal as doubly
necessary, now we were In the Philip
pines. He declared there was even now
a revolution in the State of Panama,
-which was being fomented, incited and
aided by various canal companies, which
had propositions before the United
States for its consideration. Referring to
the suggestions that had been made to
this Government by these canal compan
ies, he Inquired:
"I'd like to know how- much of this kind
of insolence the Senate can stand with
out having ita stomach turned."
He bitterly denounced the syndicates
which had been organlred under New
Tork and New Jersey laws "for the pur
pose of controlling canal routes on the
Isthmus of Darienl"
"It Is an outrage on all public decency,"
he urged, "an open violation of the crim
inal laws of the United States. While 1
etand here to rebuke It, the railroads op.
posing the canal are today, by a con
spiracy and combination, compelling th
people to pay full rates charged at the
pleasure of this great combination, by
which their industries are suffering to an
extent Indescribable, and which nobody
has yet even attempted to estimate."
With earnestness and vigor, Morgan ar
raigned the new Panama Canal Company
for haIng been instrumental In prevent
ing the package of the Nicaragua. Canal,
blU at the present sevsion.
Never." he declared, "has the United
States Government And the United .States
Congress been badgered and cuffed about'!
as we have beea by this Panama com
pany; and the quiet submission and ease
with which we take It can be accounted
for only in one way that the Precedential
election Is pending, apd we are afraid to
tackle any corporation that has, or pro
fesses to have, some great power."
Morgan maintained there was no proper,
reason why the pending Nicaragua Canal
bill should not be passed at once. It
was demanded by the people, and they
would demand an accounting from the pol
iticians. He could -not believe the Presi
dent was In league with the politicians
who were antagonizing the canal bill.
"For," he Inquired vehemently. "Is It. to
be said that the President Is a party to
this ambidextrous and crose-eyed political
He did not believe, either, that the
President was so afraid of .British influ
ence that he had an idea in his mind of
abandoning the canal project.
"As to the bill before the Senate." de
clared Morgan, referrlns to the Philip
pice measure, "It is manifest that It can.
not pass Congress at ths session; Indeed,
it can jnever pas' this Congress. It Is
Irrational now for Congress to legislate for
conditions so remote, so unknown and so
"The President, who Is a candidate for
re-election," said he. "is in the hands of
his friends, and his friends Are the enemies

syndicates the bill cannot pass at this
session. The responsibility, however, must
rest upon them."
Allison (Rep. la.) then called up the
nundry civil appropriation bill, which car
ries $65,S12,&0, or over $4,000,003 more than
tho bill as it passed' the House. Sixty
five of the 157 pases of tho bill were dis
posed of. Some discussion was precipi
tated over a committee amendment pro
viding that the Secretary of the Treasury
should prescribe rules and regulations for
the enforcement of the contract labor law
and the Chinese exclusion act.
Lodge (Rep. Mass.) offered an amend
ment providing that the Commissioner
General of Immigration should prepare tha
rules and regulations, and they should bo
enforced after the Secretary of the Treas
ury had approved them.
Allen (Pop. Neb.) opposed tho amend
ment of the committee, maintaining that
it was a practical nullification of the
Chinese exclusion act and the contract
labor law. The whole matter, he declared,
was loft to the caprice of the Secretary,
and this, too, while the railways were hur
rying into the country thousands of Jap
anese contract laborers.
Without action upon the amendment, the
bill was laid aside until tomorrow.

At noon, after disposing of SIS pages of
the bill, the House adjourned and immedi
ately re-assembled. This being Friday,

pension bills. The House wont Into com
mittee of tho whole and proceeded with

During consideration of one of the bills,
Talbert (Dem. S. C.) made an assault on
the manner In which pension bills were
rushed through. He cited the case of
Arthur Dlnsmore, an $1800 department
clerk, for whose benefit Congress recently
passed a bill increasing his pension from
$24 to $72 per month. Congress, he said,
was so ashamed of its outrageous action
after it discovered what It had done, that
the bill was recalled from the President
after it had gono to him for his signature.
Dlnsmore was a private in the Third
Michigan Infantry. Talbert charged that,
in addition to his Government salary and
pension he was drawing $100 a month as
secretary of one of the members of the
invalid pension committees of the House
S. W. Smith (Rep. Wis.) Smith replied
and said Dlnsmore' s condition was de
plorable and prevented him attending to
his duties, so that he had to pay all save
about $200 of his salary from, the speaker
for assistance in doing the work, and had
to lose three to five months each year
from the pension office without pay
Gardner (Rep. Mich.), who knew Dlns
more personally, also save the House a
graphic description of his suffering. Ev
ery dollar of his pension money, $24 per
month, he said, went to pay doctors'
Talbert said if these things were true
the pension office should grant Dlnsmore
$72 per month.
Among the bills favorably acted upon
was a Senate bill to Increase tho pension
of the widow of Captain Grldley, of the
Olympla. to J59 per month. One hundred
and ninety bills were favorably acted
upon In committee of the whole, but their
passage was blocked In the House by Tal
bert. who made the point of no quorum.
At 4:50 P. M., the House adjourned.

WASHINGTON, May 25. The Industrial
Commission, in its report to Congress on
labor legislation, recommends improved
legislation to the State Legislatures rath
er than to Congress dlrectb
"The subject of greatest public interest
today," pays the report. "Is. perhaps that
of the regulation of the hours. of labor
permitted in Industrial occupations, and
especially In factories."
As Congress has no power to legislate
directly in this matter, the commission
recommends that a simple statute be en
acted by all the state, regulating the
length of the Working day for all per
sons between the- ages of 14 and 21 years
who work in factories. The report, in,
brief, says:
"Tho employment of children below the
age of 14 should be prohibited In fac
tories. The length of th working day in
all public employment should be fixed at
eight hours. The fame time should be
fixed for workmen In underground mines.
except in cases of emergency. Employ
ment in mines of children less than 14
years of age, and all women and girls,
should be forbidden. Congress might well
enact that no person under IS should be
employed as a telegraph operator upon
railroads, and that all engineers ana
switchmen should submit to an exami
nation for color-blindness; also that it be
made a misdemeanor for an engineer or
switchman to be intoxicated while on
"A simple and liberal law regulating the
payment of labor should be adopted by
all the states, providing that all laborers
shall be paid In cash orders, without dis
count, not In goods or due bills, and that
no compulsion, direct or Indirect, should
be u?2d to make them purchase goods at
any particular store. Provisions for the
fair weighing of coal at mines before pass
ing over a screen should be adopted, and
the miners should have the privilege of
employing a check-welghman at their own
"The question of the enforcement of the
labor contract by Injunction or contempt
in equity process is a difficult one, mainly
made so by the abuses which have arisen
from Injunctions carelessly Issued. It is
suggested that it might be well to limit
punishment for contempt to Imprisonment
for a brief period, but equity courts
must not be deprived of the power to
protect themselves and to make their de
crees reypected. The practice of awarding
blanket injunctions against all the world,
or against unnumbered defendants, as well
as the practice of indirectly enforcing the
contract for personal service by enjoin
ing employes from quitting work, should
be discouraged, not only by popular sen
timent, but by intelligent judicial opinion."
On the subject of railway labor the com
mission Is of the opinion that Congress
should adopt a consistent code of laws
regulating all matters regarding employ
ment, such as hours of labor, limitation
of continuous runs by engineers or con
tinuous service by telegraph operators or
sw'tchmen, the enactment of a consistent
employers' liability code, the liability of
the employer or corporation for "defective
appliances, etc.
The statutes already adopted in some
states discriminating as between union
and non-union labor by making it a penal
offense for an employer to exclude unon
labor only seem to the commission to be
unconstitutional, being class legislation.
Tho statute ehould apply to non-union, as
well as union labor. If It is to be enaclfcd
at alL The right to be employed and
protected without belonging to a union
should be preserved, but every facility
should be given labor to organize if it
desires, and tho last vestige of the notion
that trade unions arc a criminal con
spiracy should be swept away. The use of
private police detectives or other hired
bodies of men to be used in connection
with labor troubles has aroused consider
able attention, and Congress has probably
the power to enact reasonable legislation
to prevent abuses in this direction. In a
general way, the commission reports that
conciliation laws have been found effect
ive, but that strict arbitration machinery
rarely works well. It is recommended
that labor bureaus or committees be es
tablished in all the states.
Commissioners E. A. Smyth and C J.
Harris unite in a minority report. n
which they express the opinion that it
would be both unjust and impracticable to
attempt any uniform laws regulating labor
in all the states, If labor and capital are
to have their full development. They
say the right or private contract should
be allowed to both laborer and employer,
and. therefore, the limitation of hours of
labor would be fraught with danger. Com
missioner John W. Daniel. In a separate
minority report, concurs in the spirit of
the Tiews expressed by Comm'ssloners
Smyth ind Harris.
Opinions of Chicago Packers on the
CHICAGO, May 25. The passage or the
German meat bill by the BundesratA
which now seems assured since It has
passed the Reichstag, is viewed different
ly by Chicago packers. Most of "the pack-
era have little hope of any action favoring
American meat until Germany has tried
the law for .some time. ':
"Prices efllll advance In Germany as
soon as the law goes Into effect." said one
packer. "The poorer classes will be unable
to pay the Increased figure. When the
German people understand what the. bill
has done, there will be a new one, but po
litical conditions are such that at present
there Is no hope of expecting anything."
Norris Epstein, of the German-American
Provision Company, said: -
'"The passage of this bill Is an outrago
against the American packer. American
goods are absolutely pure and wholesome.
I know tho laboring people of Germany
want our products."
"England Is our best customer," said
Martin Cudahy. "and her .trade is worth
more to the United States in the meat
trade than all the world beside."
"I don't consider It a serious blow to
American packing interests," said C. M.
Favorite, of Armour & Co. "While It. Is
true that quite a little business is done
with Germany in the sausage and canned
meat' way. It does not cut enough figure
to affect the markets In this country."
Encllsh Army Officers Predict Peace
in Three Weeks.
NEW YORK, May 25. A dispatch from
London to the Tribune says:
The retreat of Botha's forces from the
Rhenoster to the Vaal serves to convince
military men m that the end of the war
is "rapidly drawing near. This is, -without
doubt, tho official view, although nobudy
connected with either vne War Office or
the headquarters staff is willing to be
quoted to that effect.
The date for the occupation of Pretoria
which is usually named among officers is
June 16. It Is assumed, among them that
there will be no delay either in the pass
age of the Vaal or in the occupation of
Johannesburg, since Lord Roberts can
turn the Boers out of every defensive po
sition which they may attempt to hold.
They expect to see the British flag flying
over Johannesburg by fcic end ot another
week, and Pretoria under siege early in
June. Lord Roberts himself has been
too wary to make any forecasts respecting
the duration of hostilities. The officials
may have reasons of their own for conclud
ing that there will be peace at the end
of three weeks, but they are not neglect
ing to send out reinforcements from Eng
land. Every week witnesses the move
ment of fresh levies and details for
strengthening the battalions and cavalry
squadrons at the seat of war.
Another matter which is discussed In
official circles with increasing Interest, is
the Dutch responsibilities. South Africans
are not agreed upon the financial aspects
of the problem and upon the most prac
tical method of distributing the burdens
of a costly war on tho basis of popula
tion. Land taxes levied upon the Boers
will yield little when i-ney are Impover
ished, and the only adequate resource for
the payment of a large Indemnity Is the
mining territory of tho Rand.
One South of Johanneiibnrg and One
at Lainjr's Xck.
LONDON, May 23. Another advance
along the railroad towards Pretoria has
brought Lord Roberts' troops to Vrede
fort Road, a few miles north of Prospect,
where they arrived at noon Thursday. In
tho meanwhile General Methuen Is pro
gressing along the southern bank of the
Vaal River, with the object probably ot
making a dash at Klerksdorp, when Tie
arrives opposite that railroad terminus.
General Hutton's column Is apparently In
the neighborhood of Vredefort, 15 miles
west of tho railroad, whence It threatens
the federals' right flank.
The next two days ought to settle
whether Lord "Roberts will encounter se
rious opposition south of the Vaal, but
It is believed the next big engaegment will
be fought just south of Johannesburg, and
the fight there, and possibly one at Lalng's
Nek, will prove the last pitched battles
of the war. Tho latest Indications point
to tho latter being the more stubborn of
tho two. It Is hoped here General Buller
will delay until Roberts Is able to detach
a force to seize Heidelberg and sever
the railroad connection between Lalng's
Nek and Johannesburg.
Boers Hurried Retreat.
KROONSTAD, Thursday, May 24. Al
though the Boers retreated without a
shot, their late position showed that they
meant to fight. Along the steep sides ot
tho south bank were cunningly constructed
rifle pits, resembling the defenses of Paar

The Mutual Insurance Company Pe
tition Favorably Acted Upon.
WASHINGTON. May 25. The Congres
sional committee on Interstate and foreign
commerce unanimously voted to report In
favor of the Government taking action
on the petition of the Mutual Life In
surance Company, of New York, asking
for redress from the Pruss'an Govern
ment for its expulsion without good cause
from the empire. The committee was
much impressed at the hearing by the
remarks of Mr. Richard I. McCurdy,
president of the company, and by the
clear statement of Its counsel, Mr. Benja
min F. Tracy. The committee recom
mended the following resolutions:
"Resolved, By the Senate and the Houso
that the Secretary of State be and is
hereby requested to take all steps which
may be necessary and proper to obtain
from the government of the Kingdom of
Prussia a revocation of the order of Au
gust 14, 1695, by which the privilege of
transacting business in that kingdom was
withdrawn from the Mutual Life Insur
ance Company, of New York."
It is considered certain that the resolu
tion will pass the House, the feeling of
members against the recent action of
the Prussian authorities in the treatment
of American merchants being particular
ly strong.

Allege the Dancer of Inoculation
Japanese in That City Ask for a.
Similar Order.
SAN FRANCISCO. May 23. Argument
was begun in the United States Circuit
Court tpday on the petition for an in
junction filed yesterday by Wong Fal.
a Chinese subject, who seeks to have
tho City Board of Health and Dr. Kln
youn, the Federal quarantine officer, re
strained from keeping him and 25,000 other
Asiatic residents from leaving the city
unless they first submit to Inoculation
with what Is known as the haffklne
serum, alleged to be a prophylactic
against bubonic plague infection. Judges
Morrow, DeHaven and Hawley occupied
the bench, and, the array of counsel was
formidable. The courtroom was densely
crowded with Chinese and Japanese mer
chants and their white advisers and sym
pathizers. The attorneys for the Chinese set forth
that there is not now, nor has there been,
a case ot bubonic plague In San Fran
cisco, but despite, that fact the petitioner
and his fellow-countrymen are prevented
from leaving the city until they submit
to Inoculation with the serum. This en
fqreed inoculation is an arbitrary and
oppressive Interference with the present
liberty of the Chinese, and Japanese resi
dents. It deprives 'them of the equal pro
tection of the laws of the land, to which
they are entitled by the treaties entered
Into by this country. The inoculation
causes great pain aind distress to the
person subjected to" it, and may cause
death. Ity only purpose Is to prevent- the
bubonic plague being contracted, not to
cure It, and as the disease has not ex
isted in San Francisco, 'and there is no
danger of It existing here, the Inocula
tion is purely unnecessary.
United States Attorney Coombs, for the
Board of Health and Federal Quarantine
Officer Kenyoun. read an order from the
Treasury Department, by which he
claimed tho Federal quarantine officials
at this port are authorized to prevent the
transportation by any common carrier of
Asiatics or any other class of persons
likely to convey contagion to other com
munities, unless they are provided with
certificates to show that they have been
properly Inoculated against such conta
gion. Dr. Coombs also read a resolution
adopted by the State Board of Health.
May 21. that the bubonio plague has ex
isted In this city within the last 10 days.
Judgo Morrow raised a question as to
the court's jurisdiction In, the premises.
The matter of pecuniary damage inflicted
by tho restraint could not be considered.
The court, ho said, could only decide
whether the restraint Itself was Illegal.
"Our complaint." said Attorney Ma
gulre, "follows the line of strike and boy
cott Injunctions, in which Injury and
damages are alleged. The respondents
are interfering with the liberties and
rights of which the petitioner and other
Chinese residents are accorded by the
treaty existing between the United States
and China. Therefore, in my opinion, this
court has full Jurisdiction in this case."
Then the attorney proceeded to show
that tho restraint complajned of was ille
gal on the part of both the. City Board
of Health and the Federal quarantine of
ficer. But even If the plague did exist
here, Attorney Magulre. contended, the
Federal health officer would not be au
thorized to preyent travel from one county
to another, or from, one state to another.
Such matters, he claimed, are exclusively
in control of the local authorities.
After a number of attorneys had argued
on similar lines, the court took the case
under advisement.
Local Japanese this afternoon filed in
tho United States Circuit Court a peti
tion for an injunction similar to that
asked for by the Chinese, restraining the
Federal authorities and the local Board
of Health from stopping Japanese from
traveling to other counties or states.
Dr. Kellogg, of the Board of Health, re
ports that no new cases of plagut or
deaths from the disease have been re
ported. The last death alleged to have
been caused by the plaguo occurred May
13. since which time no living cases have
been brought to the .attention of the
local Board of Health or the- Federal
Japanese Government Objects to a
General Inoculation.
WASHINGTON, May 23. Through Its
charge here, Heisero Nabei Shima, the
Japanese Government has joined the Chi
nese Government in a ' strong protest
against tho compulsory Inoculation of Jap
anese and Chinese In San Francisco with
anti-plague serum. The Japanese protest
is much mpre energetic and forcible In
Its termn than that lodged by the Chl
neoa Government, and conveys a very
plain Intimation that, while there could
be no objection to a general Inoculation.
If such were regarded as necessary -to
prevent the extension of the plague. It
cannot be contemplated that any discrimi
nation should bo 'practiced against th
Japanese and Chinese: the rule .must be
general, and include Caucasians as well
as yellow men. Unlike the Chinese, the
Japanese have a measure of protection
afforded by their most recent treaty with
the Uulted -States, which on Its face might
seem to warrant their protesfagalnst any
discriminatory treatment.
The matter has been . referred to the
Surgeon-General of the Marine Hosplta'
Service, with directions tc report the facts
