INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April 24. The
ilrst business In the Republican State
Convention this morning was the presen
tation of the report of the committee on
Resolutions. There was a hot fight In the
committee over the insertion of the clause
Indorsing the gold etandard. It had been
decided to advocate a plank In which
some members of the committee thought
Ahey could detect an approval of bank
si jset currency. It was stricken out after

de ned measure of. prosperity which pre
vails throughout the entire country, the
'rich fruit of Republican policies and Re
publican administration, and we depre
cate every effort to overthrow the laws
and tho administration under which euch
results are accomplished.
"We mourn the death of jour great leader
ar.a President. William "McKInley. He
was-an ideal citizen, a statesman of pro
found wisdom, a patriot of the most ex
alted purpose." His name and services are
&. part of the splendid and enduring hle
lory of the Republic.
"In the death of General Benjamin Har
rison the Nation has lost a brave soldier
and one of Its purest, wisest and most
trusted statesmen, and Indiana her most
illustrious citizen. General Harrison left
to h!a country a rich legacy of good
deeds done. We revere his memory and
mourn his loss.

their profound sorrow upon the death of
Governor James A. Mount.
"We cordially Indorse the able and pa
triotic administration of President Roose

port of the Republicans of Indiana In
all hla efforts to continue and advance
the prosperity of the people at home

proved, and "Increased participation In
the administration of their domestic af
fairs as they shall demonstrate Intelli
gence and capacity for self-government,"
Js advocated for the Filipinos.
The platform continues:
"We are opposed to all trusts or com
binations of capital whoso purpose or ef
fort is to restrict business or control
prices. And, we especially denounce those
whose tendency It Is to increase the cost
of living and the necessaries of life. We
favor legislation to prevent such abuses.
We approve the sincere and determined
effort of President Roosevelt to enforce
the laws against illegal combinations In
restraint of trade, and demand that ad
ministrative officers, state and National,
shall enforce the laws in the most vigorous
manner, so that legitimate competition
shall not be embarrassed or destroyed.
"We adhere to the policy of protection.
Under it our Industries have developed
and the hopes of labor have been in
creased and wages maintained at a high
er rate than would have been otherwise
"We favor the extension of our markets
through carefully guarded reciprocity ar
rangements with other countries wherever
it can be done without 'interrupting our
home production.' While we favor such
modifications of tariff, schedules as from
time to time are required by changing
conditions, we Insist that such changes
shall be made In line with the funda
mental principle of protection.
"Our faith In the gold standard has been
amply justified by the wonderful strides
of American industry and commerce since
"We aro gratified that Republican dip
lomacy has secured the abrogation of the
Clrfyton-Bulwer treaty, enabling the Gov
ernment to proceed with the construction
of a ship .canal between the Atlantic and
Pacific Oceans under the authority of the
United States and the protection of our
"We favor the most stringent National
and state legislation to suppress anarchy.
"We approve the enactment by Con
fess of Legislation which will debar Chi
nese from gaining admission to the United
States to the Injury of American labor,
md we demand the enforcement of Immi
gration laws which shall exclude all un
worthy and undesirable Immigrants, whose
presence menaces our citizenship or in
jures our wageworkers."

millions of postal cards was brought to
a close tonight by Postofflce Inspector

RAWIjIXS DENOUNCES THE PHILIP
PINE MILITARY POLICT.
The House Sends the Oleomargarine
Bill to Conference After Agree
ing to Senate Amendments.
WASHINGTON; April 24. Just before
the Senate adjourned today 'Rawlins of
Utxh concluded hl3 speech In opposition
to the Philippine government bill. As
on previous days he devoted much of his
time today to a consideration of the testi
mony taken before the Philippine com
mittee. He analyzed tho testimony In
connection with orders Issued by the War
Department and by gen""-! officers in
the Philippines. Ho was particularly
severe In his denunciation of General
Chaffee for the orders he had Issued In
carrying out the policy of the Govern
ment. He declared, In conclusion, that
the United States would reap a whirl
wind of misfortunes and disasters as a
result of Its policy In the Philippines.
The Senate passed several unobjected
measures of minor importance and a
large number of private pension bills.
The House today sent the oleomargar
ine bill to conference, after agreeing to
the Senate amendments with some modi
fications suggested by the agricultural
committee. The opponents of the measure
offered a number of amendments, the
principal one of which was designed to
place renovated butter on the same foot.

voted down. The latter part of the day

THE DAY' IN DETAIL.
Senator Ravrllns Continues His
Speech on the Philippines.
WASHINGTON. April 24. During the
consideration of routine business In the
Senate today a bill was reported from
the Judiciary committee and passed, pro
viding that certain clerical defects In
the naturalization cases in Territorial
Courts that have gone out of existence
may be remedied on proper hearing.
A resolution offered by Proctor direct
ing the Secretary of War to send to the
Senate all reports regarding the Buf-fington-Crozler
gun carriage which may
have been made to the department was
Bills then were passed as follows: To
provide for the purchase of a site and
the erection of a public building" thereon
In Che City of Washington, to be used
for a. hall of records, and Indicating an
appropriation of $1,000,000 for the purpose:
authorizing an Increase of pension In cases
Involving total deafness; authorizing the
appointment of a committee to distribute
$500,000 of the funds of the Choctaw and
Chickasaw Indians among Indigent mem
bers of those nations.
At 2 o'clock the Philippine government
bill was taken up and Rawlins con
tinued his speech in opppsltlon to It. Ho
quoted from the testimony of General
MacArthur before the committee on
Philippines in accounting for the dls-
ble uim ui n...Cu uuu wuunueu tlon committee of the Board of Trade,
among the Filipinos. General Mac- of Chicago, has written a letter to Rep

soldiers do not know how to shoot.
ft e'hftrtf .
The explanation made by General Mac
Arthur was not satisfactory, in the
opinion of Rawlins. The Senator's ex
planation was that "our troops were
directed not to encumber themselves
with prisoners and not to burden them
selves with the wounded. The Filipinos
were swept from the face of the earth.
This was In execution of the programme
to make Ot the Island 1 howling Wilder-
ness and to exterminate all people over
the age of 10 years." Rawlins quoted at i
length the orders
lssucd by general of- j
fleers in the Philippines. He was Inter
rupted by Carmack, who directed -parr
WILI SOON BE COMING
tlcular attention to this phrase In one
of General ChifTee's orders: "I do not
urge Inhuman conduct." "It strikes
me," suggested Carmack. 'that General
Chaffee should have said, "I forbid In
human conduct.' "
The purpose was, said Rawlins, "that
the soldiers were left to practice, with
Impunity and without disapproval. In
human conduct. That Is the only in
telligent and reasonable Interpretation
that can be put upon It. That was the
meaning ascribed to It by the subordi
nate commanders who practiced the most
Inhuman conduct that the mind of man
ca'n conceive." Rawlins sharply criti
cised General Chaffee and denounced him
as a "dastardly villain who has brought
dishonor upon the American name and
the American people. He attacked the
Administration for referring to the army
in the Phlllnnlncs. for lnvcstleatlon. the
charges against the military authorities
in the Islands made by Provincial Gover
nor Gardener. He declared that no
proper Investigation could or would be
conducted by the army which was the
object of the criticism."
In the course of an eloquent and im
passioned peroration, Rawlins declared
that If the United States Government
should continue In the enforcement of
Its present policy in the Philippines it
would reap a whirlwind of misfortunes
and disasters. He received congratula
tions from many Senators when he had

The House today resumed the con
sideration of the Senate amendments to
the oleomargarine bllL All the amend
ments offered by the opponents of the
bill were rejected and the Senate amend
ments, with such amendments to those
amendments, as were proposed by the
majority of the agricultural committee,
were adopted. The opponents Qf the
bill made a strong effort to place reno-vated-process
butter on the same foot
ing with oleomargarine, but they were
defeated by a two-thirds majority. At
the conclusion of the debate the amend.
i ment was sent back to conference.
I The House then went Into committee of

appropriation bill. It was agreed that
there should be three hours' general de
bate upon each side. Wadsworth (Rep.
N. Y.). In charge of the bill, made a
brief preliminary statement of the con
tents of the bill, which he explained car

DISAGREEMENT ON EXCLUSION BILL
Point of Difference Is Date as to
When the Law Shall Extend.
WASHINGTON, April 24. The conferees
on the Chinese exclusion bill decided to
dav to report a disagreement to each
House. The point of difference Is the
date as to when the law shall extend, the
House contending for an Indefinite period,
and the Senate being equally firm In in
sisting that the law shall not last beyond
the life of the treaty.
The House conferees have held out at
the earnest request of the California dele
gation, but It Is believed that when a
further conference Is ordered an agree
ment will be reached. The Senate con
ferees announced that a canvass of the
Senate showed that body would not yield
on this point.
No Action In Crozler Case.
WASHINGTON, April 24. The Senate
failed In executive session to consider the
nomination of General Crozler to be Chief
of Ordnance at the close of routine busi
ness today, notwithstanding a previous
agreement to the effect that this should
be done. The committee on military af
fairs desired delay. It, today decided to
make a more detailed Investigation before
taking the matter up In the Senate, as
Senator Scott suggested It had been repre
sented that Injustice had been done to
General Crozler In connection with his In
terest In the Bufflngton-Crozler gun car
riage. The committee decided to make
further Investigation, but without asking
to have the adverse report already made
by the committee In General Crozler's
case withdrawn. All persons having
knowledge of the gun carriage, and espe
cially the members of the board of ord
nance and fortifications, of which General
Miles Is president, will be summoned to
give testimony. The Senate adopted a
resolution offered by Senator Proctor, "di
recting the Secretary of War to send to
the Senate codIcs of all official ronnrts
from artillery officers In regard to the
Bufflngton-Crozler disappearing gun-carriage,
made either to the War Department
or to the board of ordnance and fortifica
tion." It Is the general opinion that the
committee's action will postpone consid
eration of the nomination by the Senate
for a considerable time.

SENATOR IN A FIGHT
MONEY OF MISSISSIPPI HAS A ROW
WITII A CONDUCTOR.
Refused to Pay Tvro Fares and Is Fati
Off a Street-Car Has His As
WASHINGTON, April 24. Senator H.
D. Money, of Mississippi, had an alter
cation with a conductor on a street-car
this morning; which resulted In the Sen
ator's receiving two severe blows from
the conductor, "bnd the conductor btng
cut quite severely In the right hand with
As Senator Money relates the circum
stances, he was riding from his home to
the Baltimore & Ohio depot to taice the 9
o'clock train on that road for Ba.timore.
where he goes frequently for medical
treatment of his eyes. He had taken
a car on the Fourteenth street branch of
the Capital Traction line, and nad changed
to board a car which stops at the Peace
Monument, half a dozen blocks short of
his destination. He had failed to notice
this circumstance until the car began to
turn around the monument. The car
bound for the depot was immediately be
hind the car In which he was seated.
The Senator says that he had only three
or four minutes in which to make his
train, but that after he discovered lie
was on the wrong car he called to the
conductor and asked him for a transfer
ticket to the car bound for the depot. He
does not recall what the conductor re
plied, but, falling to receive the ticket and
recognizing that he had no time to lose,
he jumped from the car he was on and
boarded the other.
He had no sooner taken his scat, he
says, than the conductor of that car ap
proached him and asked him for his tick
et. He then told the conductor that he
had not had time to secure a transfer
and reminded him that he (the conductor)
had been a witness to the circumstances
of his change from one car to the other.
The conductor replied that the Senator
would have to produce a ticket or pay his
fare, whereupon the Senator told khlm
that he had paid one fare, and being en
titled to a transfer, -which he had a3ked
for. but had not received, he would not
pay another. Thereupon the conductor
told him that if he would not pay his fare
he would put him off the car, and imme
diately proceeded to carry his threat into
execution. This the Senator resisted by
grasping an upright post, and engaged In
a struggle with the conductor, who was
not making much headway, when a pas
senger who had been sitting next to the
Senator volunteered to assist the con
ductor. By their combined strength they
contrived to break the Senator's hold
upon the post and to force him from the
The Senator says that when they first
undertook to eject him the car was in
full motion, and he feels that if they had
succeeded at that time he would Inevi
tably have been badly hurt. The conductor
and his assistant did not however, suc
ceed in their design until the car stooped
at the next corner to let off other passen
gers. He says that both the conductor
and the "passenger were very gruff and
abuslvo In their language, and that after
he had reached the street the conductor
hit him a severe blow over the heart with
his clinched fist. The blow, the Senator
says, was very painful, and In order to
protect himself he took a small pocket
knife from his pocket and opened It. This
weapon the conductor grasped and In do
ing so cut his hand so that It bled very
After this proceeding other persons
stepped between the two, but notwith
standing their presence the conductor,
who is a ery tall rqant struck him an
other blow over the shoulder of a man
standing between them. This blow was
struck with the conductor's bloody hand
and it hit the Senator squarely on the
Jaw. He was as a consequence of this
blow covered with blood from the .wound
of the conductor, and this circumstance
was responsible for a rumor thaj the
Senator himself had been severely In
jured. The Senator adds that there were
three or four policemen present, but that
none of them took any steps to prevent
the altercation. t
The Senator was not badly hurt, but
his trip to Baltimore was prevented. He,
however, proceeded with his customary
duties about tho capital during the day
as If nothing unusual had occurred.
Later In the day the conductor, who
proved to be O. 'H. Shaner. was arrested
on a warrant sworn out by Senator
Money. Shaner says he did not strike
the Senntor until the latter drew his
knife, and that he did not make any ef
fort to put him off the car while It was
in motion. '
Senator Money swore out a warrant for
James E. Hooper, a member of the local
Fire Department, who was the passenger
that aided the conductor. Later Senator
Money preferred verbal charges agalnGt
Hooper before the. Board of Commission
ers of the District of Columbia. The Sen
ator also wrote the president of the trac
tion company, demanding the immediate
dismissal of Conductor Shaner.
Senator Money later secured warrants
for the arrest of Conductor Shaner and
Foreman Hooper, of the engine com
pany, on the charge of assault. He also
brought charges against Capitol Police
man Murphy, who also Is alleged to have
taken the part of the conductor In the
struggle with the Senator. Foreman
Hooper and Conductor Shaner were ar
rested tonight, but were released on
furnishing satisfactory security for their
appearance in the police court tomorrow.
Senator Money said tonight tht he
had been very friendly with the emploje3
of the road; alwaj'3 had been solicitous
about their welfare and had advocated
many changes greatly to their benefit.
When he left the loop car today the con
ductor, he said, waved his hand to the
