Two Republicans Are Against
Philippine Bill.
PJttsiburpr Protectionist Wants Free
"Trade With Islands Ex-Speaker
Kiefer Speaks Vigorously
Against Any Concession.
"WASHINGTON, Jan. 30. A vigorous
speech In favor of the Philippine tariff
hill by Dalzoll opened the proceedings In
the House today. It was followed by sev
eral others against the measure, most
notable of which was a two-hour address
by the veteran statesman, Ex-Speaker
Kelfcr, of Ohio, who returns to the House
after a rotirement of 20 years. Keifer bc-
;poko a "standpat" doctrine of the most
pronounced type. He iid he would op
pose the ponding bill because it was a
concession to Domocratlc principles. His
speech was replete with recollections of
earlier days and received the closest at
tention and liberal applause from both
.sides of the chamber.
Just before the session closed the inci
dent of the ejection from the executive
offices of Sirs. Minor Morris was made
the subject of discussion by Shepard, of
Texas. A brief reply was made by Gros
venor (Ohio), who deprecated sending out
pcnsatlonal reports regarding the Ameri
can administration.
Dalzcll for Free Trade.
Dalzcll asserted that the Philippine arch
ipelago Is a portion of the United States,
and there ought to "be free trade both
ways, but that under the circumstances
at this time it is impossible. "When the
treaty stipulation granting Spain the
same advantages as the United States
expires in 1P03, there will bcfrec trade
under this bill.
Asserting that the future of the Phil
ippines was a problem for statesmen that
are to come, Dalzcll Insisted that self
government had been given the Filipino
people, except in the two rights trial by
jury and to bear arms.. Vc have," said
ho, "extended to these people our navi
gation laws, our immigration laws and
our alien contract labor laws., Do you
moan to toll me we shall commit them
to our domestic policies, require thorn to
carry their goods only in American bot
toms and 6till exclude them from our
markets? Xo. the Philippine Islands must

mestic" Characterizing as iridescent dreams tho
fnbulous amount of sugar and tobacco
which the opponents of the bill declared
would come from the Philippines under
the now rates. Dalzoll itemized the cctual
cost of a pound of Philippine sugar laid
down in New York, which aggregated
4.13 cents, as against 3.00 cents as tho
cost of Michigan beet sugar and C.71 cents
of Colorado sugar. From these he do
ducted that within the next century tho
American boot sugar was in no danger
from competition with Philippine sugar.
Williams, the minority lender, stated
tho exact Democratic position on the
tariff. "It should bo levied solely with
regard to tho maximum revenue produc
tion. If it protects Jn certain places, well
and good, but that should not be Its 5ri
mary object."
KWfcr Opposes Bill.
Keifer said ho was noniowhat embar
rassed to take a position In opposition to
mai or notli parties on the bill.
"On this side," he said, "the claim is
made that 'there is not enough of free
jrauc in n to nun. and on the other side.
.!...- u 4 nut cnougu unconstitutionality
in it to Hurt.' " Ho quoted from the
speech of Payne to tho efTect that the
bill would not do the Filipinos much
good, but there was sentiment in it. the
j-jujjuius inougnt it would, and It would
encourage them, and then declared:
T am not opposed to encouraging any-
oody, nut l can't e my way loar to
vote for this hill merely because tho Fili
pinos are deceived into the belief that it
win ao mom some good, when it won't
About 25 years ago. Kelfcr said, he had
made a prophecy in a 10-mlnuto rPPh
in tho House which hnd come true. That
was. that the only way to get rid of the
coiiego professors' theorios of free trade
was to have free trade. "We had free
trade and had got rid of tho theories. H
was opposed to Joining the free traders
now. e contracted the present prosper
ity with the "soup-house days" of tho
wnson om. and was followed with
amusement in reviewing Democratic
declaration that God and not the Re
publican party was responsible for pros
perity, for tho better conditions which foL
lowed the resumption of specie payments
and the establishment of the gold stand
ard. 'T say it reverently," he said, "that my
party advocates tho thing that tho Al
mighty sees fit to work out and accom
plish completely, and that should bo
glory enough for us. And it may bo said
that tho Democratic party, in the many
thlng3 it has had on its banner and gono
down with to defeat, has simply boon
unfortunate that the Almighty was not
witn them. "
Dixon Calls It Democratic Bill.
Opposition to thebill was made in a 20
mlnute speech "by Dixon, of Montana. His
assertion that the Republicans were unit
ing to further tho Democratic doctrino of
free trade brought a protest from Macon,
of Arkansas, .who said the Democratic
party did not stand for freo trade.
"How about the declarations of Champ
Clark and Bourke Cochran in their as
sertions that all the ciurtom-houses
should be torn down?" asked Dixon. "I
have . great respect for the. gentleman
from Missouri." responded Macon, "hut
not so well. I have less respect for the
opinions of the gentleman from Now
"Williams, the minority leader, explained
that his party did not believe in frco
trade, and the declaration .in Its plat
form that "all forms of protection are
robbery." to which attention was called
by Grosvenor, did not mean free trade.
Slicpard Champions Mrs. Morris.
The recent ejection of Mrs. Minor Mor
ris from tho White House office building
was made the subject of remarks by
Shepard. of Texas. Shepard has a reso
lution for an investigation of the inci
dent ponding before the rules committee. 1
Grosvenor made the point of order that
the discussion of a resolution pending be
fore a committee was not proper.
"If the President had heard tho howl
of a wolf or the growl of a bear in tho
adjoining room he would have been on
the scene Immediately." said Shepard.
Ho characterized the Mrs. Morris occur
rence as "an unwarrantable and unneces
sary brutality which demanded investiga
tion and merited censure." "If Con
grass," he continued, "composed of
American fathers, husbands, brothers,
permits this incident to go unrebuked, it
will add a passive and cowardly approval
of this violation of the most sacred prin
ciples of American life."
Grosvenor, in reply, said he knew no
difference between the dignity of tho
White House and any other home In the
city, and lie did not consider the Ameri
can Congress in tho sense of a police
court or as having anything to do with
the question of disorderly-conduct of any
employe In the neighborhood of the White
Senate Talks of Anything Katlicr
Than Morocco Conference.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 10. The Senate
made it plain today that it had yesterday
all that it wants to hear for the present
on the Moroccan question. There wore
two opportunities to resume consldera
lion of me subject, but both .wore
avoided, apparently with the assent of
all the members, and the Senate ad
Journed at a comparatively early hour
rather than take It up-
Notwithstanding the early adjourn
ment. a great deal of business was dls
posed of. About SO bills were passed,
leaving on the calendar only six or seven,
Of those passed a large majority grant
private pensions and many are bridge
bills. One of the bills favorably acted
upon appropriates E0,O00 for tho appro
priate marking of the graves of Confed
erato soldiers who died in Northorn
prisons during the Civil War.
For the rest of the session tho Senate"
gave attention in turn to the question of
salaries paid to Panama Canal officials,
to the pure food bill and the merchant
marine shipping bill, but without tak
Ing action on any one of those sub
jects. The canal subject was discussed
by Simmons and the pure food bill by
Heyburn. The only action taken on the
shipping bill was that of reading it at
At the beginning of the session Crane
Introduced by request a Joint resolution
requiring tho President "to open negotia
uons witn mo other nations to secure
the neutralization of the Philippine Is
lands and the recognition of tholr Indc
pendence whenever the same shall be
granted to them by the United States."
Simmons Bigclow's 3IouUiplecc.
After the routine business had been dis
posed of. Simmons called up his rcsolu
tion making a request for the names of
the high salaried employes of the Panama
Canal Commission. Simmons quoted an
article from Poultney BIgolow criticising
the management of the canal, saying that
ne was not In sympathy with It.
"Does the Senator know how long Mr.
BIgolow was on the Isthmus?' asked
L)dge. and when Simmons replied in tho
negative, iLodge said he was there only
for 2S hours from Novombcr 29 to De
cember 1.
"I hope." replied Simmons, "that, while
there, his observations were so directed
as to get more truth out of the situation
than did the Secretary of War In his re
cent visit."
Continuing. Simmons said that his only
purpose in referring to the article was to
show that the mind of the American pro
pie is prepared to expect excess and
abuses on the isthmus. The resolution
was referred to tho committee on inter
oceanic canals.
Pure Food Bill Up Again.
On motion of Heyburn. the Senate then
proceeded to the consideration of the
pure food bill and Heyburn addressed tlw
benate In support or it. He said that
the primary object of the bill was to
protect the public against fraud and de
ception. He analyzed the bill and said
that it had been so modified as to pro
tect retail dealers in manufactured zoods
and he added that there had been other
changes, adding, however that the bill
contained all that was in the bill of last
"Then." said Spooner. "it is obioction
able,' When told by Heyburn that the
penalty provision had been so amended
as to provide that dealers in imnorted
articles covered by the bill shall not be
punished unless they purchase the iroods
knowing them to be adulterated, Spooner
repned mat tne clwnge effects "a groat
improvement." Further consideration of
the bill was postponed until tomorrow.
Among the bills passed, were the fol

Afraid to Mention Morocco.
At o clock, Gallinger asked for tho
reading of the merchant marine shipping
bill, but Morgan suggested that that blil
had been displaced by the Senate in
secret session yesterday, when It made
tho Bacon Morocco resolution tho regu
lar order. The chair held that tho Mo
rocco resolution had gone to the calen
dar by unanimous consent. The reading
oi tne snipping Dill then proceeded.

under consideration, it was not referred
to by name. Morgan spoke of it as n

Damage to Kentucky Slight.
NI2W YORK, Jan. 10. The buttloship

Sunday. This was decided upon yes
terday, aftor a consultation of Captain
J. N. Hemphill, actinjr commandant.
Naval Constructor Nutting and other
officials. The only Injuries to the ship
are found to be above the water line.
They consist of the bending and the
breaking of some plates on tho star,
board quarter. Two small pieces of
the blades of the Kentucky's starbonr.i
propeller have been chipped off, bur
mcy are so small, tho divers report,
that their loss will not interfere with
the speed of tho ship. The chief en
gineer declares the report that tht
shaft was bent to be untrue.
It was decided that repairs should pro
ceed night and day. This, It Is thought,
will release the ship in less than two
weeks, so she will be able, sooner than
was expected, to join the other ves
sels of the North Atlantic squadron,

When asked if ho will resign from the

Chamberlain gathered bedding and made
a rope of It. and at the same time tho
extension ladders were being placed into

Pompier ladders were then rushed to the

him placed the ladder firmly and scaled

Southern Pacific Succeeds In Secur
ing a Temporary-Injunction.
SAN FRANCISCO. Jan. 10. The con
tentions between the Southern Pacific and
the Western Pacific Railroads were trans
ferred to new legal ground today. At
torneys acting for the Southern Pacific
applied to United States Circuit Judge
Morrow for writ3 of injunctions against
the Western Pacific and the American
Dredging Company. Judge. Morrow
granted temporary injunctions made re
turnable at an early day.
Tho writs direct the Western Pacific
to stop laying railway track on United
States property and order the dredging
company to cease pumping mud on Fed
eral territory. The papers were received
shortly before dusk. The foreman of the
tracklayers said he would read the docu
ment when he had time and his men con
tinued work until 6 P. M., the usual hour
for quilting.
The dredges which have been operat
ing day and night ceased work Immedi
ately. The orders are practically similar
to those issued in .the state courts and
which were not recognized by the dredg
ing company and the Western Pacific,
because they claimed to be engaged on
federal ground. It was to cover this
contention that the new writs were asked
The writs were made returnable before

cific today began the tracklaying on the

side of the estuary. Commenting on this
fact the Western Pacific people said to
night that this operation would put the

sition wnen court proceedings came up.

SAN FRANCISCO. Jan. 10. The track
laying war between ths Southern Pacific
and Santa Fc on one side and the "West

San Francisco today in the Potrero dis
trict. The Santa Fe agents hastily gath
ered together an army of workmen and
with great speed laid rails along Rhode
Island street until the long ribbon of
steel rested on the eastern boundary of
Potrero. block 135. This block is a prize
for which the corporations are strug
gling, and for the possession of which
legal proceedings have .already started In
the local Superior Courts.
The track today runs through the block
and the builders of the track have what
ever advantage possession may bring.
The Western wants the block for termi
nal purposes, and has brought condemna
tion proceedings. The Terminal Realty
Company, ostensible owners of the block.
today charged that the Western Pacific
was not acting in good faith, and asked
that tho Western engineers be summoned
to disclose their proposed right of way
and survey. This effort to compel a dis
closure of the estcrn Pacific plans was
quickly denied by Superior Judge Hunt,
who said:
"The Western Pacific cannot be com
pelled to disclose Its proposed route to
the public. Obviously, there are not only
corporatlons but hundreds of individuals
that would be happy In the possession
of the knowledge of just where this road
is going to run. Even though no other
opposing interests existed, speculators
would hurry to secure lands on the line,
and prices would leap accordingly. The
petition for the order is denied."
"Western Pacific Peels Safe.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 10. Colonel
Heuor, chief of the United States engi
neers of California, stated today that
the Government is not concerned in
what railway occupies the newly-made
land along the north retaining wall of
the Oakland ostuary. which land, he
believes, belongs to tho state. He will
not attempt to disturb the Western
Pacific if Its tracks laid there are not"
on the retaining wall.

said that the whole dispute will be de
termined by the courts and meanwhile

coveted strip of land running out to

totnry of War grants the Western Pa
cific privileges of buildins: slips and
wharves at the end of the land, this
official said there would be little trouble
in tne remainder of the dispute.

SAX FRANCISCO. Jan. 10. A special
dispatch from Honolulu says that HIch
Sheriff William Henry, who was at the
head of the local pollco -when Mrs. Jane

"Tho Stanford university at the time

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 10. Tho
Harvard athletic committee tonight,
after passing a resolution that it was
unanimous in favor of a continuance
of intercollegiate football, provided
satisfactory changes can be made in
