Han Juan bill July 1. ie8. He entered
the Twentjr-fourta Ohio aa sergeant
Ba3f April 12. lfcI, resigned in Octo
ber and entered the regular amy In
November aa a private in the Sixteenth
infantry. At fce close of the civil
. war he had risen to he lieutenant col
onel of the Tenth Infantry, having re
ceived Ueveta for callast aerrlce at
5Jarfreeloro. Jones boro and during
the Atlanta campaia. The record ot
scores of other meritorious officer
mitht be quoted, but these are fair
sample of them.
Leonard Wood is 41 years of age
. r2f ett, Ktllos atd others having
served in the army about aa long aa
he has lived. He graduated from tbs
Harvard raedkal school in Hoi and is
a ihrkla and surgeon by profession,
lie became a contract surgeon in thfe
regular army in HIS and surgeon witn
rank of captain in 1431- At the out
break f the Spanish war be and Theo
dore Itooevet organized the roug&
riders and Mr. Wood, as their colonel,
saw two months of active service. His
lnSuence at court was sufficient to pro
cure hit appointment as military gov
ernor in Cua. here Le has done ex
cellent sanitary work. He is Jtrtnped
over S3 captain. 277 majors, S$ lieu
tenant colonels and 77 colonels.
Calculating the time at which the
various officers will retire it appears
that Wood will become the head of the
army la comparatively few yean, and
because of his youth will remain at the
1 ad of it for many years. Nearly all.
if not all. of the oScers over whom he
Is to be Jumped will retire from the
army under the age limit long before
he ili. The question rs asked with
propriety, what court Influences were
strong enough to produce such aston
ish inc results?
tfut perhaps the most glaring in
stance of court faroriutza was the at
tempt made by the president to de
Kz&ue Admiral Schley. Schley's rank
in the navy was three numbers ahead
of Eampson. Schley fought the naval
battle at Santiago and destroyed the
Spanish Sett with the loss of only one
taaa. Sampler as not present, be
ing more than tea miles away during
the whole fight. The president then
nadertook to degrade Schley .Vlow
Sampson, but the senate refused to
confirm the nomination. As emperor
of the Philippines, the president will
have no senate to Interfere with him.
If he wishes to take some private and
rnke him commander-in-chief of the
TO.oiO soldiers in the Philippines, un
der the Epooner bill he will have the
power to do so. If he has a relative to
whom he wishes the contracts to be
given all he will have to do will be to
issue an order. If he has a friend that
he wants to give the authority to build
railroads, city waterworks or street
car lines, that friend can get It all to
the exclusion of everybody else If this
r-'n to whom all powtr, civil and mil
itary, has been given, sees fit to do It.
The poorer bill creates an absolute
autocrat and emperor of the Philip
pines. Ail power, without any re
strictions whatever Is placed in his
hands. It Is so strain upon language
to call MKlnlcy "Emperor of the
Philippine.- That Is what he is now
and what the Spooner bill proposes to
make him for ail time to come. The
bill, cow put as a rider upon the army
appropriation bill, reads aa follows:
-That all military and civil power

ands, acquired from Spain by the trea
ties concluded at Paris oa the 10th day

A congressional document Is usual
ly very dry reading. Congressman
Sutherland sent the editor of The In
dependent one the other day while he
must bare bad la mind how this edi
tor 1 very hard worked and needed a
little humor and light rear-- to liven
him up, so he Rent the e'v.VJce given
by Horace White before the' committee
on coinage, weight and measures. To
read It will cause more laughter than
the best comic opera. The Independent
returns Its thanks to Mr. Sutherland
for his effort to brighten the houri
of a hardworking editor with a little
comic reading. The following Is a sam
ple of th fun that Mr. Horace While
made for the committee and all who
will take th trouble to read this hum
orous document entitled. "Hearings be
fore the committee on coinage, weights
and measures. Most of it runs along
after this fashion: 4 "
Mr. Gaines: Does not every gold
contract mean and is intended to mean
to stop Its payment In any other mon
ey but gold?
Mr. White: Yes.
Mr. Gaines: . And does It not to that
extent destroy the tender or money
value of every other money except
gold, and to that extent destroy Its use
as money, and as you stop the use of a
tender money you Increase a dispar
ity? , .....
Mr. White: ; There Is ho other mon
ey but gold. Silver is not money;
greenbacks are not money.
Mr. Gaines: , What do you call
Mr. White: Money is something
which Is a measure of value and a me
dium of exchange, and there Is noth
ing but gold that fills that hill.
Mr. Gaines: Is not the silver dollar '
Mr. White: No.
Mr. Gaines: Is not the silver certi
Mr. White: It discharges debts.
Mr. Oalnes: Can not you pay taxes
with th silver dollar?
Mr. White: Yes.
Mr. Gaines: . Is not that money?
Did you ever hear of taxes being paid
la anything else but money?
Mr. White: Yes, sir. I have
"worked out" taxes myself.
Mr. Gaines: I do not doubt but what
that may be; I have heard of "penal
tie" being Imposed on people and of
their working them out. Do you know
how many gold contracts are In ex
istence in the United States?
Mr. White: I do not know exactly
the figure, but I know there are a
great many railroad bonds of that kind
Mr. Gaines: Are sot all the railroad
bonds In fact payable In gold?
Mr. White: I think most of them
Mr. Gaines: To that extent does rot
that say to silver and paper money,
"You shall not pay this debt." and to
that extent enforce the disuse of those
moneys, and to that extent prevent a
parity from being maintained, the veiy
thing that this bill proposes to main
tain or do, and the very thing that Is
the pronounced policy of the govern
ment? Mr. White: I said a little while ago
that the silver dollar is not money.
Subsidiary silver is not money; it is
small change; and the silver dollar is
large change. The fact that you have
made It legal tender doe not make it
money. Anything may be legal tender
that congress chooses.
Mr. Gaines: Let us agree for the
purpose of my argument that it la
money because the government makes
and says it is money. Do you not
produce a disuse and thereby a dispar
ity between gold and silver coins just
in proportion as you increase gold
Mr. White: No.
Mr. Gaines: Its use would be les
sened? " '
Mr. White: The government re
ceipt will finally be collected in silvei
exclusively, and the government will
hav no money to meet Its gold obliga
tions. That is the only way it can
Mr. Gaines: Then you agree that
there Is money in this country except
Mr. White: I do affirm that most
positively. I mean t-i say this:. That
lny other kind of money you have doed
not meet the scientific definition ot
money, which Is a measure of value
and a medium of exchange.
Mr. Gaines: I am not talking about
the scientific part of It, I am talking
about the legal part of it the money
congress coins into standard dollars.
Mr, White: Money that is not
scientific is not money at all.
Mr. Gaines: Is not paper money
some we issuer scientific money?
Mr. White: No. I call that cur
rency. Mr. Shafroth: It is a mere promise
tQ pay, but I thought the silver dollar
was money, '
Mr. Gaines: You say the silver dol
lar is not money?. . .
Mr. White: . I said so.

Although nearly two months inter
vene before the first of these leaves the
Chicago wharf, the Northwestern
Steamship company is in daily receipts
of applications for space aboard, and
a number have been rejected because
of the character of the cargo.
Large consignments of flour, lard,
meats, agricultural implements, lum
ber, logs, copper end copper ore have
already arranged, 80 per cent of which
is the product of Chicago.
It is said by Warren F. lJurdy, man
ager of the company, that one Chicago
manufacturer of agricultural . imple
ments made application during last
December for the entire space of the
four vessels for his wares, but his re
quest was denied because the weight
of such a cargo would be too light for
the space occupied, and only that
space was granted to him as is al
lott.J to his class of merchandise.
The ships are still in course of con
struction, and will : -t be delivered to
the owners until April 15, when the
loading of the four will be begun.
These vessels have a capacity of 3,566
tons, equal to the capacity of the St.

of the American line, and it is claimed
for them by their owners that they
can land Chicago merchandise in Lon

route as can be done by the old route,

Has That Wealth Arrived From the Phil
ippines and if to. Please Tell Who
Editor Independent: As I have not
been able to read much for the last
year I would be pleased to have you or
some competent person write an ar
ticle setting forth the condition of the
war in the Philippines. It was con
tended that there was great wealth
there and that we should hold on to
the country. Has any of the wealth
been turned over to us and if so who
has it? If we are still to get the
wealth, when can we look for Its ar
rival? If it does not arrive soon had
we not better go after It?. If we get
that, why not afterwards go for the
wealth on the Islands held by Great
Britain? There is great wealth there
and the main island would make a
magnificent coaling station. We could
probably get it in less time than it will
take to get the suffrages of the people
on the island of Luzon and make good
loyal Americans out or the Filipinos.
The English people talk our language
and we could make them understand
what we wanted of them. Their
queen now being dead, they have little
to live for and the McKlnley govern
ment is allied to them in common in
terests. After that we could gobble
the whole universe on the plan of the
trusts. One government would cost
less than a whole lot of governments.
We could cut down expenses and
cheapen the product.
If two of our republican candidates
for the senate would agree to these
ideas and put them before the presi
dent, it is more than probable that
they would speedily be elected.

A BUI Has Been Introduced la Congress
to Appropriate Money From Sale
of Public Itnda to Sink
Congressman Sutherland keeps plug
ging away endeavoring to get legisla
tion beneficial to the west. He is a
member of the committee on reclama
tion of the arid lands and he has
worked persistently to get an appro
priation for sinking artesian wells. At
last he persuaded the committee to in
sert it in a bill favorably reported
from that committee! He' also filed a
suplementary report to the report of
the committee which was as followsi
1 Indorse the report made by Mr.
Reeder of Kansas on the bill reported
by the committee on Irrigation of arid
lands, and believe that it fully sets
forth the reasons why said bill should
become a law. But availing myself of
the permission given by the commit
tee, I desire to call especial attention
to the provision of the bill that author
izes the director of the geological sur
vey to sink artesian wells for experi
mental purposes in the great plains
region of the west.
I offered a bill making a provision
for the sinking of artesian wells, but
as the committee have Seen fit to In
corporate thrj principle in the bill Just
reported. I deem It unwise to push a
measure for that project alone. Prof.
N. H. Darton and also Professor New
ell, both of the geological survey, ap
peared before the committee and at
great length gave reasons why H
would be advisable to confer upon the
geological survey power to carry on
the work Of experiment by sinking ar
tesian wella In Nebraska and Kan
sas and other portions of the great
plains region. From a careful Inves
tigation of their testimony and Other
matters presented to our committee,
I gather the following facts:
The wide area of plains which ex
tend from the Missouri river to the
foot of the Rocky mountains IS un
derlain by a series of great sheets of
clays, sandstones and limestones, ly
ing on a floor of granite, etc. The
sandstones and some of the limestones
in this series carry a large volume of
water, which has been tapped at many
places and apparently is available in
nearly every part of the region. All
the water-bearing formations and as
sociated beds of clays, etc., are of great
extent, and they orcur in regular suc
cession, througnout. The lower beds
do not vary greatly in thickness, but
the upper ones are less regular in this
regard. They ull dip gently eastward
with the slope Of the plains, but there
are occasional local variations. The
granite floor rises to the surface at the
west in the Rocky mountains. Black
K Xn r V i y-ar
Hills, etc., and to the east in eastern
South Dakota and In the lake states,
is well as at a few points south.
Geological surveys in the plains havn
been made for the purpose of ascer
taining the distribution, order of suc
cession, and thickness of the water
bearing formations and their asso
ciates, so that we now have a general
knowledge of these factors for a large
portion of the plains region, with de
tailed knowledge for some restricted
areas wbich are considered typical.
The series of rocks upturned against
the Rocky mountains and Black Hills
have been measured and all available
data secured from borings In the plains
area. The result of these investiga
tions have been brought together in
Several reports already Issued or In
press. In portions of the plains where
the formations are nearly . level and
there are local Increases in thickness
In the upper beds, it has not been
found possible to make precise predic
tions of depth to the water-bearing
beds, but enough of the relations and
structure are known to indicate with
certainty that the greater part of the
plains region from Montana to Texas
is underlain with water-bearing sands,
sandstones and limestones.
In some areas they He deep, over 2,
000 feet. In others they are much
nearer the surface and have been, or
can be, easily reached by borings. In
some districts waters have been found
which are too much mineralized for
domestic use, but in these cases there
are prospects for finding other waters
at greater depths which may be fresh.
In investigating the undergrOund
water problem the question of head or
pressure has been considered with
especial care, for it bears on prospects
for obtaining artesian flows." The wa
ters pass underground in the highlands
adjoining the Rocky mountains, Big
Horn mountains and Black Hills, but
the beds bearing them eventually dis
charge the waters in springs along
the zone of outcrops in the lowlands
eastward, so that the initial head is
not maintained. Consequently grad
ient of pressure exists, and in parts of
the region the head is sufficient to af
ford surface flows, while in others it is
insufficient, and waters, although .ris
ing part way in borings, have to be
pumped to the surface. ,
The head of the water varies in the
different water-bearing layers, usual
ly being greatest in the deepest ones,
so that if a flow is not obtainable from
a well of moderate depth a deeper bor
ing might yield a flow. In several
parts of the plains the underground
waters have been reached by borings
and their value fully proven, but there
are wide areas in which no adequate
attempts have . been made to reach
Having these great sheets of water
bearing beds beneath the surface of
the Great Plains, it is now important
to make them more generally avail
able. In most localities west of ths
100th meridian the surface waters and

The Cuban Constitution
The American people might as well
begin to prepare for another war, If
no check is given to the imperial craze
that has taken possession of McKlnley
and his followers. This administra
tion Is determined to annex Cuba.
Senator Hale foresaw it and soon an
nounced it in the senate more than a
year ago. It was vehemently de
nounced at that time, but now it Is as
vehemently advocated by the very
The Cuban constitution, first sub
mitted by the central committee to the
convention at the-public session ot
January 21, was signed February 21
One copy was sent to Governor General
Wood and the other placed among the
records of the convention. The presi
dent and vice presidents 6igned first
and the delegates followed in the or
der of their seats on the floor of the
convention, the two secretaries signing
last. Senor Cisneros created a sensa
tion by refusing to sign. He said:
"Cuba1 Is now independent and I
can see no reason for sending this con
stitution, to the United States for ac
ceptance. The United States govern
ment has no right to pass on it, for
it is a distinctly Cuban document and
was drawn up by this convention,
which has assumed4 the responsibility
of establishing the republic."
Several - delegates crowded around
him and . endeavored . to dissuade , him
from his course, but he was immov
able. As the delegates retired Senor
Tamay remarked: ,
f'We are alii Cubans, senor," and
Senor .Cisneros .replied:

The constitution will be translated
and a copy In English will be sent to
Washington with the original.
The result of this whole business
will be that an American Weyler will
be sent to Cuba within the next two
years. They will probably stave off
fighting until sometime near the next
campaign and try to retain power by
creating another war craze when it
will be the proper thing to denounce
every man who opposes the republican
party as a traitor. ' Then the drum

come in as advocated by that distin
