RACE ISSUE DEBATE
Members of House Engage
in Lively Discussion,
DEMOCRAT ONE TO START IT
Felt That Remarks of Trro of His
Colleagues and Fnnxtou Reflected
Upon Kentucky Military Acad
emy Bill Considered.
Representative Gilbert. In reply to
recent remarks of two of his colleapuea,
held the North was as prejudiced
against the negro as the South. Repre
sentative Glllett replied he did not
sympathize with a state of society
which accepted a man whose hands
were stained with the blood of lynch
lug, but rejected a worthy man be
cause his color was black. The debate
was quite acrimonious.
"WASHINGTON, April ZL The Houae
today entered upon consideration of the
military academy bill. In addition to the
regular Items, It contains provisions for
extensive improvement of the grounds and
buildings at West Point. These Improve
ments arc to cost $6,500,000, of which 53.000.
000 is appropriated In the bill. During the
Funeral debate on the military academy
bill. Gilbert (Dem. Ky.) precipitated a
discussion on the race question.
Governor Odell, of New York, was on
the floor of the House during the early
portion of the session today. Immediate
ly after the reading of the Journal the
House proceeded to the consideration of
District of Columbia business. Upon the
conclusion of District business the House
went into committee of the whole, and
entered upon the discussion of the mili
tary academy bill. The debate was limit
ed to an hour on each side.
Hull, in charge of the bill, in a brief pre
liminary statement, denned Its features,
the Increase In the pay of cadets, and
the adoption of a plan for extensive Im
provements at West Point. These im
provements, Hull said, would cost when
Completed $6,500,000, of which $3,090,328 was
appropriated by the bill.
Cannon, chairman of the committee on
appropriations, characterized the proposed
expenditure at West Point as the "rank
cat kind of extravagance."
Gilbert (Dem. Ky.) took occasion to re
ply to some remarks recently made by
Gillett (Rep. Maw.); Bromweu (Rep. O.),
and General Funston, which he deemed
reflected upon his state. In the course of
Mo remarks Gilbert said that In Ken
tucky, and in fact In all the South, they
looked with supreme contempt upon the
social equality of the races. The most ig
norant white girl In his state, he said,
would Infinitely prefer to marry the low
est, meanest, most Ignorant white man in
the world to the most cultivated negro in
America. Gentlemen on the other side
ceuld not cry down the "taint in the
Mood." He recalled the fact that when a
colored man sat on the other side of the
House, not one of Ms colleagues invited
him to his house, The prejudice against
r-ocial equality was as strong in the North
as In the South, he declared, and all this
talk was "hypocritical rant and rot."
Gillett In Reply.
Gilbert's remarks drew a reply from
Glllett (Rep. Mass.). Gillett said he was
willing to admit the prejudice against the
negro in New England. He believed that,
perhaps, there was a greater physical re
pugnance toward the negro there than
in the South, but because one man per
ronally felt a prejudice against the negro,
he did not think he had a right to at
tempt to enforce it upon others.
Bartlett (Dem. Ga.) interrupted to ask
whether, some time ago, Booker Wash
ington was not refused lodging at the
hotels in Boston.
Glllett replied that the Incident referred
to occurred at Springfield, not Boston,
and ho explained that Mr. Washington
was refused lodging at two hotels because
they were full and could not accommo
date him, but he said the proprietor of one
of them made every effort to secure lodg
ing for him elsewhere, and Invited him
to come to his hotel for his meals.
Gillett explained that in New England
they could understand the prejudice In
the South against the negro and against
nrgro domination, but the people of his
section insisted that social ostracism
should not be visited on those who did
not share these prejudices. When a negro
man raised himself above his fellows, and
led a pure, clean, manly life, he thought
his worth should be recognized. He did
not sympathize with a state of society
which accepted a man whose hands were
stained with the blood of lynching, or
with election frauds, but who rejected a
worthy, pure man, simply because his
color was black.
"Do not dodge this Issue," cried Gilbert;
"did you ever invite a negro to your
"I never have." replied Glllett, "but I
never have been mean enough to criticise
a man who has done so.
Cochrane (Dem. Mo.) made, a speech in
which he argued that It was the bounden
duty of the Government to stop the ship
ment of war material to South Africa. He
declared that within 40 miles of his home
there was a British garrison engaged in
buying war supplies, and said the ex
istence of a camp near New Orleans was
After completing 1A of the" SO pages of
the bill, the committee rose. The agri
cultural appropriation bill was reported.
At 5 o'clock the House adjourned.

Little Faith In Russia's "Withdrawal.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 21. The Asso
ciated Press correspondent at Toklo, writ
ing under date of April 5, says:
The impending signature of the new
Manchurian treaty was looked upon with
some doubt by Japanese offlcals, who,
however, regard the terms as the best
procurable under the circumstances, and
consummation of the vexed question. It
obtained, is due to the effects of the Anglo-Japanese
alliance. The common be
lief, however, Is that Russia will find
some new pretext for remaining in Man
churia on the termination of the 18
months'agrced on, and that she will never
really withdraw from the province. The
Japanese press professes that It Is acting
in good faith.

Clear River Valley, It is said that white

nothing of gold and copper mines in Idaho,
Eastern Oregon and Washington, which
are exceedingly valuable and productive.
The gold belt of Eastern Oregon produces
quite a sura, over $2,000,000 annually In gold
alone; the Coeur d'Alene district In Idaho
has the largest lead-silver mines in the
United States, while undeveloped copper
mines In the Seven Devlle district along
Snake River are lying dormant, simply
for lack of means of transportation. In
referring to the products of this great
Inland Empire, we must not overlook the
wool product, the oats, barley, cattler
sheep, fruits and hogs.
"No more important proposition is in
volved in this bill from beginning to end

It Is not a local matter, but one of Na

whole Pacific Northwest. It Is a matter of
the utmost Importance to the people of
the Northwest, to the people of Oregon,
Washington and Idaho, and, therefore, I
trust there will be no more dallying with

Some Senators suggest that It would serve
the House right to pass the bill Just as
It came over; but, of course, they realize
that such a course Is not likely to be pur
sued, as the sugar refiners are not going

MORE ABOUT WATER CURE
SENATE PHTLIFFZNE COMMITTEE
Ex-Lieutenant Testlned That Treat
ment Caused Old Men's Teeth,
to Fall Oat.
WASHINGTON, April 2L The Senator
ial committee on the Philippines today
resumed the examination of witnesses in
the investigation of affairs in the Philip
pines. Grover Flint, of Cambridge, Mass.,
who served as First Lieutenant in the
Thirty-fifth Volunteer Infantry, testified
that early in May, 1300, he had been a
witness to the water cure as administered
to the natives by the Macabebe scouts,
and that this was done to get information
as to the whereabouts ot their guns". The
guns were delivered. The following day
some men of his own regiment applied
the cure, but their act was without the
authority of their commanding officers.
The Macabebes at the time referred to
were not under command of a commis
sioned officer, but under a Sergeant of the
United States Array. Flint had been, he
said, a witness to at least 20 cases of
water cure. He had never seen any one
die as a result of the cure, but had seen
a Hospital Corps man working on a na
tive who had been rendered unconscious.
It also had been reported to him that one
Filipino died from the effect of the water
The witness then described the method
of administering the cure, and said that
in some instances where it was given to
Tld men he had seen their teeth fall out.
Mr. Flint, in response to a question by
Senator Dietrich, said ho was present
upon these occasions, "to draw the line
on excesses." He did not recommend to
the Major that the practice cease, nor
did he give any orders to his men to stop
Answering a question by Senator Bur
rows, the witness declared that the effect
of the cure was immediate, the victim
invariably turning over his gun or a bolo,
and giving information as to the where
abouts of othera He said it was impos
sible to judge whether the victims were
Insurgent soldiers or peasants, but they
appeared to be peaceable villagers. The
treatment, he said, never got to the point
of great brutality.
Replying to a question by Senator
Lodge, witness said he had been refused
a commission In the regular Army be
cause his Colonel had accused him of us
ing Intoxicating liquors to excess. The
witness deplored the raising of this ques
tion, hut Senator Beverldge sold It had
an Important bearing on the case. Flint
denied that on any of the occasions when
he had witnessed the water cure he was
under the Influence of liquor.
After considerable questioning, the wit
ness finally admitted that he approved of
the water cure, and, responding to a
query by Senator Beverldge, said It was
not an American invention, hut was as
old as the "chronicles of Newgate."
Asked regarding Filipinos In guard
houses, he said they were treated exactly
the same as American prisoners. The
witness described the burning of small vil
lages, the idea, he said, being to drive
the women to the woods or to the towns
and concentrate them.
MWho did the Army borrow that from?"
inquired Senator Culberson.
"I knew It in Cuba," answered the wlt
nees, "under the authority of General
The committee then went Into executive
session. The committee in executive ses
sion refused to call Edward Atkinson, of
Boston, as a witness, but directed that a
subpena issue for a number of Sergeants
and privates who were witnesses of the
water cure. The matter of calling SIxto
Lopes, Mablna and Agulnaldo was left
for future determination.
The committee then adjourned until
Tuesday, April 2D, on which day General
MacArthur will again be heard.
Senator Lodge laid before the" committee
a report by A. Lester Hazolett, who was
sent to the Philippines by the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union of Columbus,
Wis., to Investigate the moral conditions
existing In the Philippines, and also al
leged violations of the anti-canteen law.
The report shows that the moral condition
In the Philippines Is better than ever be
