that ho did not make his presence

he describes the barbarities practiced
by Spaniards on prisoners confined in
Moro Castle and Fort Cabanas as fol

the barbarities that aro practiced by
the Spaniards on.. the suspects con

that the boy had been in communica

Pardone confess he wns stripped and
suspended by the arms, while a Span
ish lieutenant whipped the boy on the
bare flesh with a heavy whip. Par
done's back, shoulders and breast
were soon a bleeding pulp add he was
shrieking in agony. Then the ofllcer
asked Pardone if ho had done certain
things and in his terrible pain the boy
would scream 'yes, yes.' This was
writteu at the boy's deposition. Such
things are of dally occurrence in the

The Itlvrr Hill a Law.
Washington, Juno 4. Ab soon as
tho Scnato met to-day Mr. Vest, who,
In tho absence of Mr. Fryo, is In
charge of tho rivers and harbors bill,
sought to have tho President's Veto of
thut measure brought up. This wns
opposed by Mr. IVttlgrew, in charge
of the Indian appropriation bill con
ference report.
Air. Vest urged that tho suspension
and possible destruction of the work
of improvement of International
water ways was of moro moment than
any other one subject, savo that of
the national honor. It was imper
ative that the question be settled now,
so that if the Veto wns sustained it
could bo determined whether any
other rivers and hurbors bill was to
be framed.
The bill and veto were taken up,
yeas 38, nays 10, the negative voto
being cast by Messrs. Rate, Chilton,
Harris, Palmer and Vilas, Democrats,
and Rrown, Morrill, Pettigrew, Prltch
ard and Teller, Republicans.
Air. Vest said that tho voto contained
statements which, however much ho
might respect tho high otiico of Presi
dent, ought not to go unchallenged.
He did not question the President's
veto prerogative, but tho frit mors of
the constitution never had intended
that this power should be used in tho
ordinary affairs of the government.
It was to be a power to meut extra
ordinary contingencies when popular
passion had led to hasty legislation
or whm u constitutional qne.stiou was
Involved. The early Presidents who
ctood nearest to the constitution ex
ercised the veto power but seven
tlmes-i-twice by Washington five
times by Madison and never by Jeffer
con or John Adams.
The President had, Mr. Vest said,
stated that the bill made direct ap
propriations of $14,000,001), while In
fact they aggregated S12.os.9jU, a
difference of. SI. 3111,100. This was
hardly characteristic of the emana
tions of Mr. Cleveland.
Mr. Vest took up other Items, show
ing that the totals were lew than tho
.President's statements would indicate.
As to the general charge of extrava
gance, in connection with the vast in
terests involved and the extent of tho
country, and the fact that Hie river
and harbor bill covered two years this
measure was reasonable. There wero
items open to question, but in all
legislation this was a result of com
promise. He hud addressed a letter
to General Craighill, chief of engineers,
usklng for the facts as to the state
ment of the President that he
had learned from olliciul sources that
the bill contained appropriations in
tended to serve private interests Gen
eral Craighill made no reply, but in
response to a telegraphic query
unswered that the letter had been
"referred to the secretary of war for
Instructions." Up to this date no in
formation had been given. "So, for
reasons best known to the administra
tion," he said bitterly, "It is considered
best not to go into details, but to in
dulge in-general and historical declam
ations as to the alleged extravagance
ind favoritism in it."
Mr. Vest said that he believed that
one of the present changes applied to
the Rrunswick. Ga.. harbor, one of
i,ho best and most economical im
provements in the country. Ite spoke
if cheaper,, rates of transportation re
tultiug from improvements at the Soo.
N'ew Orleans Hnltimore, New Yorlt,
Itoston nnd elsewhere. In the plat
form on which Mr. Cleveland was first
nominated was a strontr plank for
.vater Improvements, and his early
nessacre indorsed these improvements.
l'he speaker prophesied that in the
lear future legislation would be di
rected to further development of .in
.ernational commerce and cheapening

After some furftrcr debate, the vote

Washington, Juno 5. With frco
silver triumphant nt Chicago, It la
conceded by politicians generally that
the great fight hi the coining cam
paign will be in tho West, New York,
Now Jersey and Connecticut will bo
allowed to take euro of themselves.
Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and West
ern raining states heretofore Repub
lican will bo tho battle-ground. This
being tho case, New York la almost,
certain to be abandoned as the hend
quarters of the campaign committees.
Already a movement has been started
to make Chicago the Democratic head
quarters. While tho Republicans ex
pect to raise most of their money in
tho East, good politics suggests that,
they, too, pitch their tent near whero
the fight Is to be the thickest.
There Is a good deal of speculation,
being indulged In atpresentas to who
will be selected as tho chairmen of
the two great parties. Senator Quay
is thought to bo the choice of the
McKlnleyltes to succeed Thomas II.
Carter, If Senator Quay does not
take tho placo ho will have 11 good
deal to say about who will receive tlio
nppolntment. With a frco silver can
didate and a free silver platform, Mr.
Harrlty's usefulness as chairmnn of
tho Democratic campaign committee
will bo at an end. Senator .lone, of
Arkansas, Is being prominently men
