VOTED TO RATIFY
Danish. Debate on Cession
A MODIFIED PLEBISCITE
Report Will Be Presented to 'the
Open Session of the Lnndsthingr
Next Week and Then Sent to
COPENHAGEN, April 9. The Lands
thing, or upper house, today concluded Its
secret debate on the treaty providing1 for
the sale of the Danish West Indies Islands
to the United States. A report on the
Bubject will be presented to Parliament in
open session at an early date.
The Landsthlng majority report, which
was signed by 35 members, recommends
the ratification of the treaty after a secret
vote "by electors who are qualified to vote
for members of the Colonial Council of
the Danish West Indies. These electors
ore holders of property worth 20,000 kroner
and upward. The plebiscite heretofore de
manded Involved the entire population,
including the negroes, so that the propos
als are much modified.
Twenty-two supporters of the govern
ment signed the minority report, which is
In favor of the ratification of the treaty
without a plebiscite. The independent
group, aggregating- eight members, signed
a third report, advocating the ratification
of the treaty with a subsequent plebiscite
of the entire population. The JLandsthlng
will vote on the report in open session
next week, when the question will be re
turned to the Folksthlng, or lower house,
which has already ratified the treaty with
out providing for a plebiscite. A confer
ence committee will then be appointed,
and it is thought possible mat these will
eventually result in the adoption of the
report submitted by the eight independ
ents. Today's session of the Landsthing was
very exciting. The opposition moved to
reject the treaty outright, but the motion
was lost by 2S to 35. The majority report
is understood to be couched in extreme
terms, for the purpose of exacting some
concessions on. the part of the Folksthlng'.
The United States Minister to Denmark,
Mr. Swenson, Ignores the communications
which Captain Christmas has addressed to
him, denying the alleged bribery of Con
gressmen. Mr. Swenson declines to be
come involved in the Christmas-Gron
quarrel. The Minister's name has never
been connected with the scandals, and it
is asserted that Christmas Is now trying to
secure Mr. Swenson's influence in order
to help himself out of a predicament
St. Thomas Wants It Settled.

Committee of Ladies Send i Reply
to Secretary Shaw.
WASHINGTON, April 9. The special
committee of ladies on baggage Inspection
reform at United States ports, consisting
of Elizabeth C. Hobson, Mary Guynn and
Mabel F. Boardman, has sent to Secre
tary Shaw an open letter in reply to that
recently made public' by him regarding
such Inspections. In this letter they call
attention to one of the committee's repre
sentations which they claim the Secretary
has overlooked, viz., the importance of
having an office on the docks where pas
sengers also may be able to obtain money
for payment of duties on showing their
letters of credit or giving satisfactory
proof of their accountability.
The committee takes exception to the
remark in the Secretary's circular that
relatively few people, save Americans,
travel. They call attention to the numer
ous passenger steamers dally crossing the
English Channel, and to the crowded rail
way trains passing all the frontiers of
Europe, and containing so many travelers
that the 1GO.00O who sail annually from
our shores are a mere fraction. They
declare the delay nt the foreign custom
houses is almost unnoticed, and the trav
eler rarely has anything of which to com
plain. They ask whether It would not be
desirable to send an intelligent custom
house officer, speaking foreign languages,
on a tour of Europe, to learn the methods
there. The ladles ask that until the law
limiting free entry of personal effects to
$100 is repealed, the Secretary do all in
his power to lessen the discomfort and
annoyance the law inflicts.
TILLMAN IS SULKY.
Shows His Displeasure With the Sen
ate by Staying Away.
WASHINGTON, April 9. There is gen
eral comment in Washington on the con
tinuous absence of Senator Tillman from
the Senate chamber. It is notorious that
he has been present but two or three times
since that body voted to censure him.
That vote seems to have unnerved even
a man of his extreme gall, for he very
evidently finds the Senate a less pleasant
place than formerly. It is said in the
gossip about the Senate that the vote of
the Democrats, his party associates, in
favor of censure, was keenly felt by Till
man, and that is one reason why he has
kept out of sight
WASHINGTON, April 9. The Navy De
partment received a cablegram today from
Rear-Admiral Higginson, announcing the
departure of the North Atlantic squadron
from Antigua for St. Thomas, D. W. L
The departure of the squadron for St.
Thomas has no connection with the treaty
negotiations between Denmark and the
United States, being in accordance with
the squadron's previously announced Itin
erary. The gunboat Machlas sailed today from
San Domingo for Colon. The Machlas
was sent to San Domingo on account of
reports of the threatening trouble there
which had reached the State Department.
Meanwhile the gunboat Marietta, which
has been watching- developments In the
struggle between the Colombian Govern
ment and the Liberal forces on the Isth
mus, has- come north to be repaired, and
the Machlas now will fill her place.'

Thomas W. Lawson's Testimony in a
Massachusetts Libel Suit.
BOSTON. April 9A libel suit grow

a political canvass at Lynn, Mass., last
Fall, brought by ex-State Representa

John A. Donahue and the Lynn Daily

in the Supreme Court here, was of ex

case opened. He spoke for the defense.
which is at present attacking Mr. Ben
nett's alleged business methods. Mr.
Lawson stated that Mr. Bennett had
endeavored to secure advertising from
him and told of a conversation which '
he had with the plaintiff In which there
figured an article said to Involve the
name of Arthur Blood, president of Mr.
Lawson's Company. Mr. Lawson testi
fied: "Bennett came to me and said he had
seen Mr. Blood and he was going to
advertise. I said, 'I have talked with
Mr. Blood and I find you are right, but
before I bind the contract you are to
show me the article you threatened to
publish if Mr. Blood did not advertise.'
He then produced the story, and I
said after reading It, 'I cannot believe,
even knowing what kind ol a man you
are, that you would show this to Mr.
Blood. And, moreover,' I said, 'I don't
believe you will publish It. If you pub
lished it about me I'd kill you. il'd do
it in a moment.' "
In 1S98 the witness had had conversa
tions with Bennett about gas, in which
Bennett said: "You have got some gas
matters before the Legislature, and you
are going to have a big figfiht, and I
want you to let me take your part." Ben
nett then, according to witness, said he
wanted $5000 of advertising, threatening
to go to the other side unless it was
forthcoming. When the witness told him
he was already on the other side, Ben
nett said, "But I'll swing around." Then
the witness told Bennett he would have
nothing to do with him. Bennett said
he would send proofs of what he wrote
to the witness, and the latter would re
gret his decision. Mr. Lawson said that
articles referring to him began to ap
pear in Bennett's papers, accusing him
of bribery and other iniquities. These
articles continued until late in 1900.
In 1899 or 1900 the witness had talked
with Bennett, and the latter wanted him
to back him in his fight for the Speaker
ship. Bennett said, according to the wit
ness, that if he was elected Speaker he
could get whatever the witness wanted
for the gas company, and say who should
be appointed on the committees. He
asked for $5000 down, to be spent in ad
vertising, and $10,000 to $15,000 more would
be necessary if he should be elected
Speaker. The witness refused to have
any such dealings with him.

End of Sectionalism.
"When four years ago this Nation was
compelled to face a foreign foe, the com
pleteness of the reunion became Instantly
and strikingly evident. The war was not
one which called for the exercise of more
than an insignificant fraction of our
strength, and the strain put upon us was
slight indeed compared with the results.
But it was a satisfactory thing to see the
way in which the sons of the soldier of
the Union and the soldier of the Confed
eracy leaped eagerly forward, emulous to
show in brotherly rivalry the qualities
which had won renown for their fathers,
the men of the great war. It was my good
fortune to serve under an ex-Confederate
General, gallant old Joe Wheeler, who
commanded the cavalry division at Santi
ago. In my regiment there were certain
ly as many men whose fathers had served
in the Southern as men whose fathers had
served in the Northern Army. Among the
Captains there was opportunity to pro
mote but one to field rank. The man who
was singled out for this promotion, be-

cause of conspicuous gallantry In the field,
was the son of a Confederate General, and
was himself a citizen of this, the Palmetto
State, and no American officer could wish
to march to battle beside a more loyal,
gallant and absolutely fearless comrade
than my former Captain and Major, your
fellow citizen, MIcah Jenkins.
"A few months ago; owing to the enforced
aosence of the Governor of the Philip
pines, it became necessary to nominate a
Vice-Governor to take his place one of
the most Important places In our Govern
ment at this time. I nominated as Vice
Governor an ex-Confederate, General
Luko Wright, of Tennessee. It Is, there
fore, an ex-Confederate who now stands
as the exponent of this Government and
this people in that great group of islands
In the Eastern seas over which the Amer
ican flag floats. General Wright has taken
a leading part in the work of steadily
bringing order and peace out of the bloody
ohaos in which we found the Islands. He
Is now taking a leading part, not merely
In upholding the honor of the flag, and
making It respected as the symbol of our
power, but still more In upholding ltB
tumor by unwearied labor for the estab
lishment of order and liberty of law-creating;
law-abiding1 civil government under
Its folds. The progress which has been
made under General Wright and those
like him has been indeed marvelous. In
fact, from a letter of the General the
other day It seems that ho considered
there was far more warfare about the
Philippines in this country than there
was warfare in the Philippines themselves.
"It Is an added proof of the complete
ness of tho reunion of our country that
one of the foremost men who have been
instrumental in driving forward the great
work of civilization and humanity In the
Philippines has been a' man who In the
Civil War fought with distinction In a
uniform of Confederate gray. If ever tho
need comes In tne future, the past has
made abundantly evident the fact that
from this time on Northerner and South
erner will. In war, know only the gener
ous desire to strive how each can do
the more effective service for the flag of
our common country.

The Cuban Question.
"You have made a particular effort
In your exhibition to -get into touch
with the West Indies. This is wise.
The .events of the last four years have
shown us that the West Indies and the
Isthmus in the future occupy a far
larger place in our National policy than
In the past. This is proved by the
negotiations for the purchase of the
Danish Islands, the acquisition of Porto
Rico, the preparation for building an
isthmian canal and finally by the
changed relations which these years
have produced between us and Cuba.
As a nation we have an especial right
and take honest pride in what we have
done lor Cuba. Our critics abroad and
at home have insisted that vie never
intended to leave the Island. But on
the 20th of next month Cuba becomes
a free republic, and we turn over to
the Islanders the control of their own gov
ernment. It would be very difficult to
find a parallel In the conduct of any
other great state that has occupied
such a position as ours. We have kept
our word and done our duty just as an
honest Individual in private life keeps
his word and does his duty. Be It
remembered, moreover, that after our
three years' occupation of the island
we turn It over to the Cubans in a
better condition than It ever has been
in all the centuries of Spanish rule.
"This has a direct bearing upon our
own welfare. Cuba is so near to us
that we can never be Indifferent to mis
government and disaster within its lim
its. The mere fact that our adminis
tration' in the island has minimized the
danger from the dreadful scourge of
yellow fever, alike to Cuba and to our
selves, is sufficient to emphasize the com
munity of interest between us. But
there are other interests which bind 'us
together. Cuba's position makes it
necessary that her political relations
with us should differ from her politi
cal relations with other powers. This
fact has been formulated by us and ac
cepted by the Cubans in the Piatt
amendment. It follows as a corollary
that where the Cubans h.ave thus as
sumed a position of peculiar relation
ship to our political .system they must
similarly stand In a peculiar relation
ship to our economic system.
"We have rightfully Insisted upon
Cuba adopting toward us an attitude
differing politically from that she adopts
toward any other power; and In re
turn, as a matter of right, we must give
to Cuba a different that. Is a better
position economically in her relations
with us than we gave or give to other
powers. This is the course dictated by
sound policy,, by a wise and far
sighted view of our own Interest, and b-
the position we have taken during the I
past four years, we are a wealthy and
powerful country, dealing with a much
weaker one; and the contrast in wealth
and strength makes It all the more our
duty to deal with Cuba as we have
already dealt with her, in a spirit of
Prosperity of the Nation.
"This exposition is rendered possible
because of the period of industrial pros-
perlty through which we are passing.
While material well-being is never all
sufficient to the life of a nation, yet
it is the merest truism to say that
Its absence means ruin. Wo need to
build a higher life upon it as a founda
tion, but we can build little Indeed un
less this foundation of prosperity Is deep
and broad. The well-being which we
are now enjoying can be secured only
through general business prosperity, and
such prosperity Is conditioned upon the
energy and hard work, the sanity and the
mutual respect of all classes of capitalists,
large and small, of wage-workers of every
degree. As Is Inevitable In a time of
business prosperity, some men succeed
more than others, and It is unfortunately
also Inevitable that when this Is the case
some unwise people are sure to try to ap
peal to the envy and jealousy of those
who succeed least. It Is a good thing
when these appeals are made to remember
that while It Is difficult to Increase pros
perity by law, It Is easy enough to ruin It,
and that there Is small satisfaction to the
less prosperous if they succeed In over
throwing both the more prosperous and
themselves In the crash of a common dis
aster. Every Industrial exposition of this
type necessarily calls up the thought of
the complex social and economic ques
tions which are Involved In our present
"Our astounding material prosperity, the
sweep and rush rather than the mere
march of our progressive material devel
opment have brought grave troubles in
their train. We cannot afford 'to blink at
these troubles any more than because of
them we can afford to accept as true the
gloomy forebodings of the prophets of
evil. There are great problems before us.
They are not Insoluble,, but they can be
solved only If we approach them In a
spirit of resolute fearlessness, of common
sense and of honest Intention to do fair
and equaf Justice to all men alike. We
are certain to fall. If we adopt the policy
of the demagogue, who raves against
wealth which is simply the form of em
bodied thrift, foresight and intelligence;
who would .shut the door of opportunity
against those whose energy we should es
pecially foster, by penalizing the quali
ties which tell for success. Just as little
can we afford to follow those who fear to
recognize Injustice and endeavor to cut it
out because the task Is difficulty or even
If performed by unskilled hands danger
ous. "This is an. era of great combinations
of both labor and capital. In many ways
these combinations have worked for good;
but they must work under the law, and
tho laws concerning them must be just
and wise or they will Inevitably do evil.
and this applies as much to the richest
corporation as to the most powerful labor
union. Our laws must be wise, sane,
healthy, conceived In the spirit of those
who scorn the mere agitator, the mere
Inciter of class or sectional hatred; who
wish justice for all men; who recognize
the need of adhering, so far as possible, to
the old American doctrine of giving the
widest possible scope for the free exer
cise of Individual initiative, and yet whp
recognize also that after combinations
have reached a certain stage It is Indis
pensable to the general welfare that the
Nation should exercise over them, cau
tiously and with self-restraint, but firm
ly, the power of supervision and regula
tion. "Above all the administration of the
Government, the enforcement of the laws
must be fair and honest. The laws are
not to be administered either In the In
terest of the poor man or the interest of
the rich man. They are simply to be ad
ministered justly; In the Interest of jus
tice to each man, be he rich or be he
poor giving Immunity to no violator,
whatever form the violation may assume.
Such is the obligation which every pub
lic servant takes, and to It he must be
true under penalty of forfeiting the re
spect both of himself and of his fellows."
The Sword Presentation.
At the conclusion of the President's
speech, President Wagner announced that
the friends and admirers of Major Jenkins
In South Carolina wished to present a
sword to him on this occasion and Intro
duced Governor Thompson to the audi
ence. The ex-Governor was greeted with
enthusiastic applause as he stepped for
ward. Governor Thompson said:
"Mr. President On behalf of South Car
olina friends of Major MIcah Jenkins, I
have the honor to offer you their greetings
and to ask that you will present a testi
monial of their regard and esteem to your
gallant comrade In arms In the war with
Spain. That war was worth all that It
cost In blood and treasure, if for no other
reason than that it aroused a spirit of
patriotism which cemented anew the bonds
of union among our once divided people.
"When the smoke of battle cleared away
and honora and rewards were distributed,
the people of South Carolina saw with Just
pride that MIcah Jenkins had won the
laurel wreath and that In recognition of
'his services he had been promoted on
your recommendation from a Junior Cap
tain to Major. His gallantry recalled
vividly memories of his heroic father.
Brigadier-General MIcah Jenkins, whose
name and fame are dear to South Caro
linians. It was the son of this father of
whom you said he was a gentle and court
eous South Carolinian, upon whom danger
acted like wine. ,
"In token of their regard some of his
friends have had made this field officer's
cavalry saber, which has been fashioned
with rare skill and taste. Upon one side
the scabbard bears a palmetto tree and an
Inscription showing by whom and why It
Is given, and that It Is presented by you;
upon the other is an extract from the his
tory of the Rough Riders, In which you
commended Major Jenkins.
"Mr. President, the men and women of
South Carolina who greet ypu today have
come to testify by their presence their es
teem for your character, their admiration
for your achievements and their respect
for the office which you fill the highest
in human gift. They will be animated by
sentiments of pride and patriotism as they
see one native to their soil thus honored
by their Chief Magistrate. These senti
ments, I know, will also stir the breast
of Major Jenkins; but he will be Inspired
by another sentiment, not less noble,
which none can share with him a senti
ment of gratitude that he receives this
saber from tho hands of his beloved com
mander, under whose eyes he fought and
whose warm commendation he won for ef
ficiency, for soldiership and for gallantry
In action. Permit me, Mr. President, to
band 3'ou this saber, with the request that
you present It to Major Jenkins."
Renewed applause marked the close of
the ex-Governor's address and this
swelled to an overwhelming' greeting as
the President came forward with evident
delight and taking the sword from the
hands of Governor Thompson, turned to
Major Jenkins, who was In the undress
uniform of a Major of Rough Riders. Fac
ing Major Jenkins, the President, In ring
ing tones, said:
"Major Jenkins Nothing could give me
greater pleasure than to hand you, my old
friend and comrade, whose courage I saw
again and again, and whose courage was
of a temper that made it indifferent what
the trial was, to hand you this saber. I
am glad to do it, as a guest of South
Cardllna, as the President of the United
States, but gladder to do It as your old
friend and comrade."

Presented by President Roosevelt, April 9,
After the exercises In the Auditorium,
tho President and his party made an in
spection of the different buildings and
viewed all the exhibits they could see In
the .limited time at their command. Before
the inspection, all the buildings were
cleared of visitors, as far as possible, by
the United States marines. Guards were
at the doors of buildings, and while the
President was In a building no one was
allowed to enter.
A luncheon at the women's building was
the closing event In the President's visit.
Mrs. Sarah Calhoun SImmonds, the presi
dent of the Women's building, proposed
the health of the President, Who in turn
toasted "The Men and Women of Charles

minute of his stay, that It was Impossible
to do justice to the hospitality of Charles

After the luncheon was over the Presi
dent, Mrs. Roosevelt and a small party
visited the art exhibition, where an origi
nal Rembrandt was brought out of its
place of safe keeping and exhibited to the
party. A visit was then paid to the New
York building. The short ride to this
building gave the multitude, which had
gathered, another opportunity of seeing
the President. A few addressed him fa
miliarly as "Teddy," which brought a

works as curative action for two reasons:

from the orifice of the nose to the
deepest part of the lungs and tbe
Innermost recesses of tbe middle

and feeding the fires of tbe disease,
it soothes, quiets, heals and cure.

. Varicocele is an enlargement of the most vital blood vessels In man. The
function of these veins is to carry off waste, thus enabling the organs to
receive fresh nutrition. The disease consists of a dilation and local stag
nation of blood, from which the organs are deprived of their proper quantity
and quality of nourishment. As a result we find small, soft and sometimes
quite insensitive organs, which are ill-fitted to produce their secretion.
Varicocele Is a very common disorder. Statistics show that 25 per cent
of the male 'population are afflicted with some stage of the disease. "We
emphatically guarantee to cure varicocele in one week at our office or
four weeks of home treatment. We have cured over 3000 cases, without a
single failure or unpleasant result. We mean by a cure re-establishment
of nutrition and the functions will be restored. "We have shown this result
so often, and can refer to so many cases. In proof of this statement, that
we make It without hesitation or reserve. "We invite correspondence and
the fullest investigation of our methods.
The colored chart of the organs which -we send free on application to
any one interested in the subject, will be found a great advantage in
"home diagnosis," as well as a study for all Interested in their anatomy.
