MORGAN OF ALABAMA SEEKING
Mr. Clctel.-Mitl Attnrkcil for Not tlliluc
All Information Obtntnnblo to tlio 8m-t.te-Americans
Trentml by tho Spaniard Secret Tcs
tlmniiy In nivulpcil.
Wapimnotok, Juno 0. When tlio
-Senate met to-day, .Mr. Moriran of
Alabama asked for action on his reso
lution, requesting- tlio Piestdent for
information as to tlio capture of tho
Competitor by a Spanish warship and
the condemnation to death of tho
United States citizens, and for
whether any demand had been uiado
for the roleaso of the citizens. Ho
Baid that while the caso was ono of
great gravity, Involving the unwar
ranted condemnation to death of
American citizens, yet no information
'was available except through press re
, ports and rumors. Tho executive
branch had not given tho slightest in
formation on tlio subject.
Some question was raised by Mr.
Sherman ns to tho propriety of Mr.
Morgan making public uso of tho tes
timony of Mr. Lawrence before the
committee on foreign relations and
the Alabama Senator sharply rejoined
that there should be no such conceal
ment and hiding of facts from tho
Mr. Morgan said he did not want
Congress to leave Washington, thus
committing to the president tho solo
authority to demand or withhold a
demand for the release of American
citizens, or to recognize or withhold
recognition of bolitrerency.
Air. Morgan said that he had re
ceived loiters from Cuba, soino with
seals broken, detailing the condition
prevalent there, lloforo the Senate
should adjourn it should know from
tho president what the position was
and, if true that hundreds of men
were penned in small rooms, whether
these American citizens were to meet
death without a demand.
Mr. Morgan said that he had great
respect for tho ofllco of President) it
was an American characteristic to bo
proud of this government. Hut this
was a government of law not of pro
visional will. Tho President was en
joined to execute the laws; he swore
in his odicial oath to obey tlio law.
The Ken a to had requested information
of tho president, and he had replied
that It was incompatible with the
public interest, although section 2001
of tho statutes provided "when a de
mand was made for tho release of an
American, that all tho facts rel
ative thereto, as soon ns prac
ticable, bo communicated by tho
President to Congress." Every
day of the confinement of American
prlsonem at Havana was a day of dis
honor. Ho did not know what would
come of tlio delay and inaction. Pos
sibly in the end tlio Americans would
be so humbled as to sue Spain for par
don. Iiut Congress, which was tho
sole war power, should not leave
without authorizing that power to be
used if necessary. "In tho event that
those American prisoners are not re
leased and delivered to the President,"
he concluded, "we should authorize
him to send ships of war to Cuba and
make war sullicicnt to secure their

passed tho filled cheese bill as It camo
from tho House hy a voto of 3? to 13,
thus completing tho legislation on
this subject. The measure Is analogous
to tho oleomargarine law. T bill
defines "filled checso" to ombrnco "all
substance tntulo of milk or skimmed
milk, with tho admixture of butter,
animal oils or fats, vegetables or any
other oils, or compound foreign to
such milk and niado In imitation or
semblance of cheese.''
Manufacturers of filled choose aro
taxed StUO annually; wholesale deal
ers, $-0; retail dealers, $12. In ad
dition to these taxes, tho product it
self is taxed one cent por pound, and
imported tilled cheese is taxed eight
cents per pound in addition to tho ltn- I
port duty. It Is provided that filled I
cheoso shall bo packed by the manu
facturers in wooden packages only
and branded with tho words "tilled
cheeso" in black-faced letters not less
than two inches in length. It is also
provided that all retail and wholesale
dealers In tilled checso shall display
in a conspicuous place in their sales
room a sign bearing tho words, "filled
cheese sold hero," in black-faced let
ters not less than six inches in length,
upon a whlto ground.
Mr. Vest spoke In opposition to tho
bill. Ho said the oleomargarine law
had turned out to tho benefit of Messrs.
Nelson Morris aud Armour, who
added tho oleomargarine tax to tho
product sold to poor people, and this
law would operate in tho same way.

Nnw Yoiik, Juno 5. David Ilclasco
was a witness In tho Supremo court
yesterday In his suit to recover SOO.OOO
from N K. Fnirbank for'fiervlcea ren
dered in fitting Mrs. Leslie Carter for
tho stage, llulasco, after describing
the arduous nature of tho work of
coaching novices nnd even actors of
cxporlonco and reputation, testified
that ho first met Fairbauk In tho
autumn of 18a0, In tho apartments of
Mrs. Carter, in tills city. This also
wns the plalntiir-wltncss' first meet
ing with Mrs. Carter. Tho mooting
was at Fail-bank's request, and hnd
for its purpose, Ilclasco testified, tho
discussion of the question of making
a dramatic star of Mrs. Carter.
According to the wituoss, ho told
Fairbank tho cost of that undertaking
would be 10,000 to S-0,000, which was
no more than was paid for proparlng
Mary Anderson for her caroor. To
this information tho defendant re
sponded, placing his hand on tho
piiuntut'a bliouidcr: "My uoy, you
havo been vory frank, and would
frighten any other man, but I havo
plenty of money.- I lose. 81,000,000 In
ono day aud mako It back tho noxL"
Helasco further testified that ho ob
jected to dealing with hackers who
withheld their names from tho public,
to which Fnirbank replied that It was
for weighty business reasons that ha
did not wish to be known ns tho finan
cial sponsor of Mrs. Carton
Negotiations progressed so far that
Helasco retired from his other busi
ness engagements to devote his ontiro
time to tho development of Mrs. Car
ter's talonts. Fairbank had asked tho
witness several times not to come to
him nt his hotel, as, witness being a
theatrical man, his coming was apt to
excite gossip. A char.go of managers
for Mrs. Carter was effected at a cost
of $500, which Fairbank paid. On ono
occasion, according to Uelasco's testi
mony, Fairbank said to him: "llulas
co, what Is this 1 hear about your
leaving Mrs. Cartor aftor she makes
her debut'.' I can't spare you; 1 want
you to tour with her and write plays
To this IJ?lasco says ho replied:
"Goodness mo, 1 can'tdo that. I don't
want to go on a tour anil become a
theatrical manager, as I havo a wife
and grown up daughters and can't
give up my business."
ggFnlrbankTisked how much Ilclasco
miide u year, and when ho wm told
that It was between 525,000 and S"i0,
000, ho said: "Go with mo Bolasco,
and you will mako as much."
Witness said ho finally agreed to go
on a tour and Informed Fairbank it
would cost S20.0C0 for a Uroadway
production, to which Fairbank replied:
"Consider Mr. Allen a bank and draw
on him for monoy."
The witness asked to bo excused
from relating other conversation
which took plnco at this interview,
saying ho wished to spare Fairbank
as much as possible.

there is no waste. They are wonderful

and In this year of unparalleled drouth
they yielded over 500 bushels to the

tage to plant them In rows far enough
apart so as to do most of tho cultiva

littlo more than two feet apart Is better
than closer. Tho seed should be sown
quite thickly, and the plants thinned to
not less than a foot in the row, and I
am not sure but fifteen or eighteen
inches would give enough larger roots
to makoa better yield. With plenty of
room for them to grow, it is easy to
havo tho rootB weigh from three to five
pounds each, and such rootB count up

points In growing tho crops aro early

This is a fungous disease that effects

The disease does not generally appear

crease rapidly in slzo, the center being
of a lighter color. These spots often
run together, forming largo blotches;
the affected leaves wither, turn brown
