Every hour that General Buller delays

on Hnnlli Afrlcun War.
WASHINGTON , Jnn. 20. At the
Conclusion of morning business In the
senate the resolution of Alien calling
on the secretary of state for Informa
tion as to whether any representative
of the Transvaal hncl applied to the
United States government for rerogni-
tlonaml If such application had been
made If It had been accepted , and If
not why not , was laid before the sen
Spooner moved that the resolution
be directed to the president and he
be requested to furnish the Informa
tion If not Incompatible with public
Interests. He repudiated , he said , the
doctrine advanced repeatedly by sen
ators that the people were entitled to
Information from day to day regarding
the conduct of our foreign business.
A debate ensued between Senators
Allen , Spooner , Teller and Hale. The
resolution was finally amended so aa
to call on the president , "If not In
compatible with public interests , " to
supply the Information.
Spooner maintained that the presi
dent ought to have discretionary pow
er about giving out information.
Allen thought the matter with which
his resolution dealt could not affect
any diplomatic negotiations and that
there was no Impropriety about it. Mr.
Spooner regarded it as a piece of
gross impudence to call on the secre
tary of state for confidential informa
tion for which the president alone was
responsible. Alien replied at length
to Spooner , in the course of which ho
said It had been reported throughout
the country in the dally and wcekjy
press that the populist party had gene
"I say to you , Mr. President , " said
Allen , "that these statements arc cir
culated with a political purpose. There
are more populists in the country to
day than ever before. Wo can caat
2,500,000 votes and not all of those
voters are fools , either. The organiza
tion , far from having gene to pieces ,
is stronger today than at any previ
ous time. "
In a brief speech in opposition to
the amendment Teller said ho would
not say a word that would bo offens
ive to the government of Great Brit
ain , yet he felt his sympathy go out
to the Transvaal republic in its great
contest at arms with England.
A speech sensational in its interest
and international importance was de
livered by Hale of Maine. The occa
sion of the utterance wad the simple
question whether a resolution intro
duced by Allen , calling for informa
tion as to the recognition by this coun
try of the diplomatic representation of
the Transvaal republic , should be di
rected to the president or to the sec
retary of state.
Halo made the question the text of
an impassioned speech , in which he
declared that nine-tenths of the Amer
ican people sympathized with the
Boers in their gallant struggle for lib
erty against one of the greatest pow
ers in the world. Ho declared that
the war which Great Britain Is wag
ing is the most fell blow at human
liberty that has been struck in the
century. Ho denied that the Ameri
can people "were in sympathy with
Great Britain in the South African
war , to stamp out the liberty of a
people , " and when Br. Balfour in the
House of Commons made such a state
ment "he should be met with some
disclaimer from this side of the At
Ho declared that the English people
ple themselves are not in favor of the
war , which "had been brought on by
a sharp cabinet minister engaged with
gold speculators. "
Halo spoke with unusual force , do
cisivcness and earnestness , oven for
him , and his Impassioned eloquence
claimed the closest attention of
