BOSTON, Feb. 9. In his annual report
to the Harvard Board of Overseers, made
public. President Eliot declared Harvard's
policy to be one of determined support to
the requirements of a bachelor's degree or
Its equivalent for admission to the pro
fessional schools, as now in force in the
departments of theology, law and medi
cine at Harvard, and to an even higher
standard than has hitherto been set for
the degree of a B. M.
After giving statistics to show "that the
highly educated part of the American
people does not increase the population
at all, but on the contrary falls to repro
duce Itself, President Eliot says:
"It Is probable that the regrettable re
sult Is due In part to the late postpone
ment of marriage on the part of the edu

the protracted education now prescribed
for men who enter the learned and scien
tific professions makes almost unavoid
able." On athletic sports In general' President
Eliot says there Is increasing objection to

of courts-martial of officers serving In tho

the earth, Carmack declared, could bo
8ent t0 a distant tropical land, but when
11 became known that crimes will go un-
punished awful consequences will ensue.
Just these consequences have existed, he
said. The charges have been met with
stoical and cynical Indifference. He as
serted that there was an organized sys
tem of torture in the Philippines.
"It Is a further fact." said Mr. Car
mack, "that though this 'was notorious
throughout the whole Army, it was con
tinued for months and years. No effort
was made to suppress it, and no single
torturer was ever punished for the crime.
It Is a fact that men of high character
and standing, the representatives of the
leading Republican newspapers, went in
person to tho Commanding General and
told him that they had not only seen a
perfect orgy of looting and plunder, but
that they had seen wounded prisoners
butchered before their very eyes, and.
though he did not deny It, Ignored it.
"It Is further true that this fact was
brought to the attention of the Secretary
of War in a letter over the signature of
Robert M. Collins, the chief agent and rep
resentative of the Associated Press In the
Philippines, and you did not suggest the
propriety oi an inquiry or any invest!
Murders by American soldiers In the
field had become too common, he said, to
bear Investigation, which answer ecems
entirely satisfactory to "our noble and
generous and humane Secretary of War.""
Courts-martial In the Philippines had
been a travesty on Justice, he said, and
he cited the Case of Lieutenant Preston
Brown, whom he charged with murdering
an unarmed and unresisting native FlllDl
no, and whose sentence of five years had
been mitigated by the President to a nom
inal fine and slight reduction In rank.
To every wicked, vlcloua and depraved
ruffian in the Army, he said the order of
General Jacob smith to kill and burn In
Samar meant that thefe was no law, no
restraint and no punishment, and yet the
President calmly surveyed the ruin he
has wrought, "and, like another great Im
perialist, no is astonished at his own mod
eration." He inquired how It happened
that the President who had declared his
intention to probe crimes in the Philippines
never beard of the Captain Brownell case
when Father Augustin was tortured until
The President. In a speech while Gov
ernor of New York, had raid that our In
difference to the welfare of the people of

lanpmos were starving. The same vigi
lance tnat enames the President to dls
cover them "as enjoying the greatest pros
penty," be saia, "should cause hint to
see tnat tney are starving."
"Time," he said in conclusion, "will
demonstrate the folly of this tiii!ne."
and he hoped it would find some euro for
-tne oiunoer we have made."
The resolution then went over and the
statehood bill was taken un. Kean fN. 3A

"It Is not to be denied that their Influ

there is still a large element among; the
.Mormons wno resent tne idea of such in?
Mr. Kean said the people of the United
States are opposed to polygamy, and mean
in any way to stamp It out.
Answering Nelson, Kean said that the
Mormons who fled from Idaho to Mexico
undoubtedly would return to the United
States and mix In the politics of Arizona
and attempt to usurp the public authority
of that state should it be admitted.
"Hale interrupted to remark that every
time' this phase of the subject is reached

In the course of Kean's remarks Pat

made by the President at Las Vegas. N.
M., upon the occasion of the Rough Rid
ers' reunion, in which ho is said to have
favored the admission of New Mexico as
a state and to have declared that ha
would go to Washington and work for
such a bill.
Kean declared that this did not put him
on record as favoring the omnibus bill.
Patterson thoueht the President, belne
then a distinguished Republican leader,
having enthusiastically pledged himself In
favor of New Mexico's admission, oppo
sition to the omnibus bill should vanish.
Elklns read the Republican and Demo

crats for trying to keep their pledges,
while the Republicans, he saldJiad not

obligations with respect to statehood. El

Thirty-three Democrats and 17 or IS Re

bill, while S3 Republicans opposed it. and
he wanted to show that tho minority was
obstructing tho passage bf the bill.
Elklns yielded to Hoar, wno presented
the conference report on the act fixing
salaries of certain Judges of the United
States courts. The report was agreed to.
Clar (Ga.) declared an injustice was
being done the people of Arizona and
New Mexico on account the statement
made regarding their Mormon population.
At the present time, he said, there arc
about 1300 Mormons In New Mexico and
GOO In Arizona, while, according to the
census of 1S90. Idaho had H.972 and Utah

Memory of Tilden.
NEW YORK. Feb. 9. A banquet In
celebration ot the anniversary of the
birth of Samuel J. Tilden was held at the
the Tilden Club tonight. About 100 per
sons were present. Among the speakers"
were Charles- S. Hamlin, of Boston As
sistant Secretary of the Treasury under
rccamci tievcjuuu, uiiu .juaciju iv. cum,
District Attorney ot St. Louis. Mr. Ham
lin slid in part:
"The great questions over which tho
coming fight for the Presidency will be
waged are: First, the foreign policy of
the Administration: second, the treatment
of trusts and monopolies; third, tariff re
form; fourth, economy In government ad
ministration. "Tho great question whether the Phil
ippines are ultimately to be admitted as
territories or be given independence is
now before us for settlement I believe
thit a majority of Democrats are ot the
opinion that they, should be given com
plete Independence at an early date.
t'Thft proper regulation of Industrial
combinations known as trusts is also be
fore the people and many bills have been
Introduced which under, the guise of regu
lation would practically amount to such
control over state corporations as to wipe
out state lines and establish a centralized
form of government not unlike that of
France. I believe the first step should
bo radically to review our system ot
tariff fixation to the end that foreign
competition may come In to take tho
place of that domestic competition which
is being destroyed. Then, by examining
the effect of foreign competition, we shall
soon find what additional legislation is
needed to control monopolies. Meanwhile
tho Federal Government should enforce
existing law and provide new legislation
to secure information as to what these
combinations are doing."
Mr. Folk discussed the quesUon of of
ficial corruption and declared, that, If
Samuel J. Tilden were now alive, he
would find a situation vastly worse than
that he contended against In the days of

a commit suicide, he Is guilty of a blunder and a folly, that Is Incx-
' cusable In this age of general education.
It has been claimed that It is the great cost of expert medical
, services that has encouraged the sale of these cure-alls, but un-
der the nominal fee system In vogue at the Copeland Institute,
2 all Invalids and all needing medical attention, are fully protected
from the evil. With expert individual treatment In each Individ

or necessity to tamper with secret nostrums.
Health Shattered I
Through Failure of
to Give Relief.
Mr. Cnrrett D. Coates, 012 Petty
grove street, corner of Nineteenth,
Portland, was a sufferer for many
years from catarrh, complicated by
stomach and liver trouble, and, as is
often done under similar circumstances,
he undertook to "doctor" himself, tak
ing all kinds of patent medicines and
advertised "cure-alls." He not only
fa!ledto get benefit from these reme
dies, but grew steadily worse until
Mr. Garrett D..Coatea. 012 Petty-
crove St., I'ortlnnci.
his health seemed hopelessly shat
tered. Mr. Coates relates his experi
ence In tho following language: '
"My health was very. bad for six or
seven years, but until I was told by
the Copeland physicians that the root
of my trouble was catarrh. I had no
Idea what the nature of my ailment
was, but did know that I was a
Very Miserable Sinn.
I seemed to have cold all the time and
a racking cough. I could not sleep at
night on account of the cough and
spitting. There was a discharge from
the nose and dropping back, in the
throat. I had
through the eyes and dull headache,
with a ringing and buzzing In the ears.
- "My stomach was In such a "sensi
tive and irritated condition that even
the plainest" kind of food caused me
great distress. I
myself, living principally on mush and
milk, yet at the same time suf
fered excruciatingly. After eating
there was a
Sickness at the Stomach,
and often a great weakness, and al
ways sharp pains and a craving.
"There was a great tenderness in the
right side and region of the liver. My
tongue was coated' and I had
Dizziness nnd Floating Specks,
before the eyes. My bowels were in
very bad condition.
"My entire system seemed to bo
poisoned, causing a redness and ter
rible Itchlngr of the. Skin.
This added greatly to my suffering,
