ORGANIZATION NOW PEBMANENT
Speeches Delivered by the Trro Sen
atorsA Forecast of the Plat
forra to Be "Adopted
INDIANAPOLIS. April 23. Much oratory
had" enthusiasm marked the opening of
the Republican state convention, in Tom
linson Hall, this afternoon.
Tho convention "was called to order
fibortly after 2 o'clock by State Chairman
J. P. Goodrich. The committee on per
manent organization recommended that
Senator Beverldge be made permanent
chairman, and It was ordered accordingly
by the convention. Senator Beverldge de
livered an eloquent address in which he
outlined the principles upon which the
Republicans of Indiana will enter upon
the coming campaign, and although the
committee on resolutions has not yet re
ported, it is understood that planks in
the platform will not vary widely from
the- general statements made by Senator
Beverldge thia afternoon. The Senator
declined to say that he was the mouth
piece of the Administration or President
Roosevelt, but would not deny that what
he had said had already been approved
at Washington. The Senator was enthu
siastically received when he appeared on
the platform, and when he commenced
the delivery of his address. There were
frequent outbursts of applause throughout
the delivery of the speech. During the
two hours, required for the speech not a
delegate left his seat.
There was a great outburst of cheers as
the speaker concluded, and then came loud
calls for "Fairbanks." Senator Beverldge
called for the senior Senator, and as Mr.
Fairbanks appeared on the platform, he
was greeted with loud and long-continued
Senator Fairbanks began his speech by
declaring that the Republican party had
been as conspicuous in its ability to rule
as the Democratic party had been in its
inability to govern the country. The
strongest orators In proclaiming the vir
tues of Republican rule, he said, were
speaking today upon the farms through
out the Republic, from the mines, the
factories, and from all the great avenues
of human endeavor. Then, after giving
figures showing the wonderful strides In
the Nation's foreign commerce, he said:
"In the National Administration we are
progressing successfully today under the
leadership of one who succeeded to the
Presidency under tragic circumstances, a
loyal Republican, a statesman of match
less ability Theodore Roosevelt. And our
slate administration Is so good and so suc
cessful as to challenge Democratic criti
cism. Our achievements, in commerce
havej never been so great as they are to
day. All activities of the American peo
ple in commerce, in the way of intelli
gence and philanthropy were never so
active as today. Great as has been our
commercial achievements; as much splen
v dor as we have earned and won In the
way of commerce, we have given to the
country, and that is why we will continue
ah uplifting force throughout the unnum
bered years before us."
Frederick Landls. of Wabash, brought
forth loud cheers by his assertion that he
believed "In the party of Mark Hanna,
who had never lost a fight, and never
would lose one." The outburst of applause
that met the name of Mr. Hanna was f ul!y
as generous as any that had been given
during the day.
The convention adjourned until 9 o'clock
"The platform, which will be submitted
to the committee on resolutions, whose
duties in relation to its formation will be
largely perfunctory, will favor a revision
of the tariff laws from time to time, as
business and a proper protection of labor
and capital demand it. Consolidations or
mergers of railroads that in any way tend
to lessen competition will be denounced,
and the policy of President Roosevelt In
dealing with them will be indorsed. The
platform will also indorse the records of
all the Indiana Representatives in Con
gress and of both Senators. The admin
istration of Governor Durbln will also be
indorsed. It has been decided that there
will be no allusion to the ship subsidy
bill, and the Chinese exclusion act will
also be Ignored, although he would be
pleased to have the convention Indorse tho
stand taken by him In Congress.
Senator Beverldge said this morning
that he had no candidate for any of the
positions to be filled, and was not trying
to force a candidate for any position upon
the convention. .

CUBAN BILL IN SENATE.
The House Measure Will Be entirely
WASHINGTON, April 23. There was'a
great deal of activity among the Repub
lican Senators today over the Cuban reci
procity bill. Senator Piatt, of Connecti
cut, chairman of the commitee on rela
tions with Cuba, to whom the bill was re
ferred, said tonight there would be no
early meeting of the committee, as time
was required to give the subject full at
tention. The present plan is to secure a
coalition to prevent a majority of the Re
publicans acting with the Democrats,
either in committee or in the Senate. The
first fight will be to prevent action on the
Teller resolution for an investigation of
Cuban sugar conditions, and a belief was
expressed tonight that this object would
be accomplished. Whether a Republican
majority can be held for the main propo
sition depends somewhat, it is said, on
the proposition itself, when formulated.
it developed during the day that the
House bill would have to "be entirely re
cast. Senator Spooner, who recently wTOte
a .report on the treaty-making power, de
clared that under the House bill nothing
could be done further than that to nego
tiate a treaty, which must be ratified by
a two-thirds vote of the Senate before it
became effective. The House bill, he says,
"authorizes" the President to enter Into
"negotiations" with the Cuban Government
The word "authorizes" could only mean
"requests," for the President always has
the power. Tho bill several times refers
io' "agreement," he says, which, in the
'nature of things, must be a treaty, as that
is the only method of procedure.
A suggested way to meet the cbndl
tion Is for the Senate to take the House
bill and strike out all after the enacting
clause and provide that when the Cuban
Government shall provide for the admis
sion of the products of the United States
to Cuba at a rate of 20 per cent below
that levied on goods from other countries,
then the President shall proclaim that
the products of Cuba shall be admitted
to the United States at a rate of 20 pert
cent less tnan levied in tne uingiey law
on the products of foreign countries. It
is upon this line that the Republican
leaders are now working, with the hope
that no amendments as to the differential
on refined sugar or for any other tariff
changes will be adopted.
IX GOVERNMENT NAVY-YARD t
One Xeir Battle-Ship or CraUor Must
Be Built There.
WASHINGTON, April 23. The House
committee on naval affairs today
amended the provision of the Naval ap
propriation bill so that one of the new
battle-ships or armored cruisers must
be built in Government navy-yards.
At the meeting yesterday a provision
was adopted giving the Secretary of the
Navy discretionary authority to build any
or all of the new ships In Government
yards. But the friends of the navy-yard
proposition were not satisfied with this,
maintaining that as the Navy Depart
ment officially Is opposed to building In
Government yards, the discretionary
authority would not be exercised. As
a result, the provision was amended to
day so that the Secretary's authority re
mains os to building all the ships in
Government yards, but the additional j
provision is made that one battle-shjp
or one armored cruiser shall be built In
such navy-yard as the Secretary may j
designate. An appropriation of Jlu.OuO
is made to fit up the yard for shipbuild
ing purposes, and arrangement Is made
for a test of the merits of Government
construction by keeping detailed accounts
of labor and material, leaves of, absence,
etc., so that the Items of cost may be
compared with those of construction in
The vote directing the building of the
ship In a Government yard was:
Ayes Bull, Tayler, Roberts (Mass.),
Meyer, Tate, Rlxey, Kltchln, Vandiver.
Nbes Foss, Dayton, Loundenslager,
Butler, Mudd, Cousins.
In other respects the naval bill was
left as agreed upon yesterday, with two
battle-ships, two armored cruisers and
two gunboats as the allowance of new

The Reciprocity Treaties.
WASHINGTON, April 23. The Senate
committee on 'foreign relations today
again failed to reach an agreement on
any of the reciprocity treaties now be
fore the committee. The committee de
cided that all treaties now pending
should be reported, either favorably or
adversely. The effect of this policy will
be to prevent any of the agreements be
ing tied up in committee and to give the
Senate a chance to hear all of them, even
though the committee may be opposed to

FUNSTON IS SQUELCHED
TALKATIVE GENERAL CALLED
DOWN BY THE PRESIDENT.
Forbidden to Discuss the Philippine
Question In rubllc, and Not Al-
lovred to Attend a Banquet.
WASHINGTON, April 23. By direction
of president Roosevelt, Acting Secretary
of War Sanger has addressed the follow
ing letter to General Frederick Funston:
"War Department, Washington, April 22.
Sir: I am directed by the President to j
instruct you that he wishes you to cease
further public discussion of the situa
tion In the Philippines, and also to express
his regret that you shou.d make a Sen
ator of the United States the subject of
discussion or criticism. Very respectfully.

Colorado Eons of vthe Revolution, General j
Funston Is reported to have said of Sena
"I have enly sympathy for the senior
THE ROpSEVELT GAG FOR LOQUACIOUS ARMY OFFICERS.
Senator from Massachusetts, who la suf
fering from an overheated, conscience."
Probably what caused the issue of this
Presidential letter was an application
from General Funston for leave of ab
senceUn order that he might attend tije
banquet m Boston given by the Middle
sex Club. It was understood he was to
deliver another address there, and as tho
President deprecates the discussion of
public matters In this manner by United
States officers, the letter was sent. The
request for a leave of absence was re
fused. A copy of Mr. Sanger's letter was for
warded to Senator Hoar.
Fnnston "Will Quit Talking
DENVER, April 23. To a representative
of the Associated Press, General Funston
said with reference to the statement from
Washington that the President had di
rected him (Funston) to cease further
discussion of public questions, that he
had not as yet received any such order
from Washington. Continuing the con
versation, the General said that in future
his public utterances would be free from
any reference to the Philippines, Intimat
ing that the published reports of his
speeches were as a rule full of misstate
ments and very badly garbled.
General Funston announced last Satur
day that he would not attend the Middle
sex Club banquet at Boston. He has ac
cepted an Invitation to attend a banquet
to be given in his honor in this city May
1 by the Colorado Volunteers Associa
tion. Later in the day. when shown a copy of
the order issued by Acting Secretary of
War Sanger by direction of the President,
General Funston said:
"I think It possibly refers to my re
marks on the Philippines at the banquet
of the Sons of the American Revolution
last Saturday night. I said nothing there
but what I had said before, and the man
ner in which I was introduced by General
Hale at the function naturally called for
remarks on the Philippines. .If my re
marks on that occasion are not satisfac
tory to my chief. I regret it.

TREATY "WITH COLOMBIA.
Guarantees United Stntes TUshts In
Pnrcbase of Panama Canal.
WASHINGTON, April 23. Secretary of
State Hay, for the United States, and
Minister Concha, for Colombia, today
signed a treaty providing for the- trans
fer to the United States of the rights
incident to the construction of the pro
numI Pflnnmn Canal. This treaty Is
similar to the protocol recently signed,
the terms of which have been published.
The following authorized statement
concerning the propositions of Colombia,
as they stand amended, was made pub
"The United States is granted exclu
sive right to construct, operate and
protect a canal, as well as all railroads,
telegraph and telephone lines and aux
iliary works within the zone. The zone

control of the United States and Col
ombia. "Colombia gives unqualified consent to
the sale and transfer of the Panama
Canal Company's rights to the United
States and exempts the latter country
from all taxes, etc She grants to the
United States a lease of the canal strip
in perpetuity. For convenience it is di
vided into periods of 100 years, renew
able at the option of the United States.
Colombia asks for a lump payment of
$7,000,000 after the exchange of ratifica
tions, to be considered as 'on account.'
For 14 years, Colombia waives all com
pensation for the canal rights. This
period will more than cover the time of
construction. At the end of the 14-year
period, the annual compensation which
the United States shall pay thereafter
shall be determined by a board of five
commissioners. Tho fact that Colombia
has assumed no compensation for the
first 14 years and the United States has
advanced $7,000,000 'on account,' will both
be taken Into consideration inr fixing the
annual rental thereafter."

At 2 o'clock the bill was laid aside. The
Philippine bill then was taken up, and
Rawlins resumed his speech begun yes
terday. Rawlins discussed at great length
the testimony presented to the committee
on Philippines, and the report made by
the officials to the War Department. He
presented many esses of torture of Fili
pinos, of the burping of towns, and of the
incarceration of Filipinos. All this, he
said, was done to carry to the Filipinos
the benign administration of the American
Government, War, he said, was to be
waged relentlessly and the articles of
war were to be cast to the winds. The
war to be waged was not to be a war of
humanity, but a war without mercy. It
was uncivilized warfare, and without ex
cuse, Rawlins discussed the campaign made
by Majbr Waller, In Samar. under com
mand of General Smith. He said that
Waller's men. performed the most thank
less and unhonored task ever soldiers
were called upon to perform. He declared
that the troops were ordered to make the
island a "howling wilderness" and kill
everybody over the age of 10 years. Raw
lins had not concluded his speech, when,
at 4:33 P. M., the Senate adjourned,
In the House.
In the House today bills were passed
to appropriate 0,000 of the funds of the
Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians for the
relief of destitute members of those tribes
and to provide for trade statistics between
the United States, and its outlying posses
sions. Dalzell (Rep. Pa.), from the committee
on rules, presented the special continu
ing order agreed on by the committee
some time ago to provide for the con
sideration of the Senate amendments to
the oleomargarine bill. Cowherd fDem.
Mo.) vigorously opposed the adoption of
the rule. Aa an indication of what would
happen when this bill went into effect,
Cowherd said that immediately after the
passage of the oleomargarine bill by tho
Senate, the price of butter went up 4
cents in New York, and 3 cents In Chi
cago. Dalzell, Teplylng, said the merits of the
bill were not now under consideration.
The order was simply designed to give the
House a chance to pass upon its merits.
The rule was adopted, 152 to 79.
The House under the terms of the rule
adopted then proceeded to consider the
Senate amendments to the oleomargarine
bill. Henry (Rep. Conn.) explained the
Senate amendments, and the action which
the committee on agriculture desired.
The major portion of the debate bore
on the general merits of the bill, and not
en the Senate amendments. When the
consideration of the amendments began,
the chair ruled that the text of the bill
agreed to by both the House and Senate
was not open to amendment. This ruling
made by Olmstead (Rep. Pa.), who was
in the chair, prevented the offering of
any amendments which the minority mem
bers of the agricultural committee decided
Wadsworth (Rep. N. Y.), chairman of
the agricultural committee, finally suc
ceeded in offering an amendment chang
ing the section providing that oleomar
garine free from artificial coloring Is tax
able at one-fourth of a cent per pound,
so as to provide that "colored butter shall
not be construed as coloration." - The
amendment was lost, 51 to SS.
Several other amendments offered by the
minority were defeated. The Senate
amendments were successively adopted, as
the reading of the bill proceeded. After
completing five of the 14 pages, the House
at 5:05 P. M. adjourned.
