WASHINGTON. .Ian. 21.—Before the
Cuban debate was resumed in the
house yesterday Mr. Lacey (rep., Ia.t,
chairman of the committee on public
lands, called up a hill to extend the
public land laws of the I'nlted States
to Alaska and to grnnt a right of way
tinder certain restrictions to any rail
road organized under the laws of any
state in the union. It was explained
that the right of way grant was 100
feet on cadi side of the road, but that
all mineral deposit* were specifically
reserved. Without completing the con
sideration of the trill It went over and
the house went Into committee of -e !
whole and resumed the consideration
of the diplomatic und consular appro
priation hill.
Mr. Clark (dom.. Mo.i. opened the
Cuban debate with one of ills char
acteristic, breezy speeches. He Bald In
if Spain does not bring the war to
a speedy conclusion the i'nlted States
ought to expel her from the western
hemisphere. There can he not dcubt as
to what haa l>e<n our traditional for
eign policy. What our foreign policy
itt under the McKinley administration,
like the peace of God, pass' th all un
derstanding. In these days of Mc
Hannalsm our foreign policy is so
feeble, so cringing, ho cowarcly, that
even old and decrenlt Spain int tilts
our flag, maltreats our citizens and
Bcarehes our ships with perfect im
punity, and President McKinley, In
stead of sending men-of-war to pro
tect our honor, assert our supremacy
and teach the Insolent and Impotent
dons a lesson they would never forget,
passed the hat around and invites the
American people to contribute alms
for starving and dying Cubans!
ft Is high time that we served p'ain
and emphatic notice on all kings, em
perors and potentates that the navies
of transatlantic powers shall not a»
used us collection bureaus for for
questionable debts, as was done a y'uir
or two ago at Corlnto, and as 'vas
done a month or so ago in Haytl. The
Cuban case Is this: For three years
the Insurgents have fought with a
courage and suffered, with a fortitude
that has challenged the admiration of
the w orld—save and except the Mc
Kinley administration. Three or four
hundred thousand peoplp—somp of thp
papers say OHO,000 —have died: men, :
women and children, as much martyrs
In the cause of liberty as was Warren
or any other hero who died that we
might he free—and yet the McKinley
administration lifts not its finger to
stay the slaughter and ean think of
nothing more effective for their relief :
than to pose as the big beggarman. j
The party of Sumner. Chase and Se
ward, which proudly vaunted Itself as ,
the friend of man. has become the ally I
of pestilence arid arson, famine, devas- |
tatlon, rape and murder!
To pvery suggestion that we should
re-enter upon a vigorous end foreign
policy we are met with the hysterical
shriek that we are advocating war. i
It Is not true, but suppose ft were? :
There irp some things wn’nc than
war deplorable as war unquestion
ably Is—and one of them Is to may
the cry baby act until we arc despised
of all nations and kindreds and j
Now that we number 70,000.000 souls
a republican administration cannot . o ;
taunted, kicked or cuffed into resent
ing an tnsnlt or demanding reparation
for an injury. Such a contemptible !
and pusillanimous policy Is enough to
make Grant, Sherman. Sheridan. n>i
pnnt, Farragut and Porter restless in
their coffins!
My renublcan trends I invite you ;
to lay aside the weight that Is holding
you down, asert your rights, come out j
on the side of eternal Justice and hu
man liberty, thereby demonstrating
that you are worthy of the high voca
tion wherein you are called. We de-n- I
ocrata and populists stand here ready
to remove from America her great re
proach. We on this side will con
tribute 1f>2 votes. If only 27 republi
can* will break th“ yoke, defy their
taskmasters und Join us in this noble
work before the sun sets this day we
will send the glad tidings ringing
round the world that "Cuba Is free."
Free, thank Ood. by the act of the
American congress.

WASHINGTON. Jan. 21.—Senator
Morgan continued his speech In ad
vocacy of the ratification of the Ha
waiian annexation treaty in th„e exe
cutive session of the senate. He an
nounced at the conclusion that he
probably would require one more day
n which to complete his presentation
of the subject.
Senator Morgan dealt with the
questions of the agricultural and com
mercial possibilities of the island, with
the character of the present govern
ment and with the position of the na
tives on the subject of annexation. He
repeated his assertion that President
Cleveland was favorable to the ac
quisition of the islands, and expressed
ihe opinion that ii was his intention
to have restored the queen and to hive
negotiated with her a treaty of an
nexation. He also expressed the
opinion that Mr. Cleveland would nev
er have taken such a positive position
as he did take against the Dale gov
ernment and In opposition to ann x
atlon, but for the antagonistic ard mis
leading teport of C:mmlisloner Blount.
The senator was Interrupted at this
point by .wo or three senators who are
opposed to the treaty, who wanted to
know If it was not true that Mr. Cleve
land had withdrawn the treaty for an
nexation made by the Harrison admin
istration. He admitted that this was
the case, saying that it v.-.ix a matter of
record, but ho still contended that un
der conditions entirely to his liking
Mr. Cleveland would have supported
annexation. Mr. Morgan had been con
vinced from private Interviews with
Mr. Cleveland that he not only be
lieved in the wisdom of annexation of
Hawaii, but that he would also have
i' '"omr unt il me unm xauun oi v.uuu
under the light conditions.
Mr. Morgan defended the present
government of Hawaii in strong terms
ami eulogized Mr. Dole as one of the
most competent rulers of me time. He
controverted the idea that the present
government was, as had been charged,
a missionary government, claiming
that It was in every way staunch und :
enterprising and abreast of the times.
Speaking of the resources of the isl
ands, Mr. Morgan said they were mani
fold. and that the time would come
when they would produce enough cof
fee to supply the demands of all the
people of the United States, while the
sugar production had already reached
its limit.
He concluded that the resources of
Ihe country were such as to Insure a
very prosperous future ami predicted
that Honolulu would some time in the
not distant future attain to great com
mercial importance, equal In all prob
ability to that of Hong-Kong or otner
cities of equal magnitude.

COLUMBUS, O., Jan. 21—The sen

Chardon, auditor of Geagua county
and a member of the republican state

der the senate resolution on which it
was proceeding;.
The committee has a report to pre

arrest and punishment of these five
witnesses for contempt. It is delayed

A noteworthy artlcie upon "The
Capture of Government by Commer
cialism," by John Jay Chapman, opens
the February Atlantic. Mr. Chapman
believes that recent mlsgoveriiment In
the United States Is but a chapter In
the history of commerce. He shows
how since the war of 1861 the salient
five Is the growth and concentra
tion of capital; how capital haB con
tributed to and supported both po
litical parties alike, for I's own pur
poses. and has thereby caused and
stimulated the rise and growth of po
litical "bosses.” He points out how
the revolt from "bOHs rule.” as evi
denced in the recent New York cam
paign, indicates the awakenin'? of a
public conscience and a demand for
bettc r things, which Is the Hint step
in shaking off the shackles of the
boss and the regeneration of the na
tion; In which conclusion from en
tirely different premises he strikingly
coincides with the deduction drawn
by Mr. Edward M. Shepard In his
thoughtful urid well-studied paper lu
the January Atlantic upon the New
York election.
