The recent meeting of 'the state
board of education resulted in the
adoption of a resolution extending the
term of the state normal school
through summer months. This action
was taken in order to give country
teachers an opportunity to attend the

the new rule there will be four terms
of twelve weeks each , but the plan
cannot be enforced until next year.
A prairie fire , the most destructive

RESOLITION PASSES BY 67 TO 21.
Free Cuba and the Independence of
the Island is Now the
SOVEREIGNTY IS. NOF DEMANDED.
President to Use the Army , Navy
and Militia to Carry Out the
Decrees of Congress.
WASHINGTON , April 18 The Unit
ed States senate passed the following
resolutions by a vote of 67 to 21 :
Whereas. The abhorrent conditions
which have existed for more than three
years in the island of Cuba , so near
our own borders , have shocked the
moral sense of the people of the Unit
ed States , have been a disgrace to
Christian civilization , culminating , as
they have , in the destruction of a Unit
ed States battleship with 266 of its of
ficers and crew , while on a friendly
visit in the harbor of Havana , and
which cannot longer be endured , as has
been set fortu by the president of the
United States in his message to con
gress of April 11 , 1898 , upon which
the action of congress was invited ;
Resolved , by the senate and house
of representatives of the United States
of America , In congress assembled :
First That the people of the island
of Cuba are , and of right ought to be ,
free and independent , and that the
government of the United States here
by recognize the republic of Cuba as
the true and lawful government of
the people of that Island.
Second That is is the duty of the
United States to demand , and the gov
ernment of the United States does
hereby demand , that the government
of Spain at once relinquish its author
ity and government in the island of
Cuba and withdraw its land and na
val forces from Cuba and Cuban wat
Third That the Dresiflent of the
United States be , and he hereby is ,
directed and empowered touse the en
tire land and naval forces of the Unit
ed States , and to call into actual ser
vice of the united States the militia
of the several states , to such extent as
may be necessary to carrry these res
olutions into effect.
Fourth That the United State *
hereby disclaims any disposition or
intention to exercise sovereignty , juris
diction or control over said island ex
cept lor the pacification thereof ; and
esserts its determination , when that
is accomplished , to leave the govern
ment and control of the Island to its
' 'Free Cuba and the independence of
the island republic , " was the shibbo
leth of the senate throughout the four
days of debate , -which ended Saturday
While the verdict returned -was de
cisive , it is just to say that it was
not final. Notes ol discord , almost
foreboding in their tone , were sound
ed. This foreboding was not due in
any sense to anxiety about the result
of the impending conflict. It was
prompted for a fear lest , if the action
taken by the senate snould ultimately
be accepted as final , this government
might become involved in complications - "
tions that in future years would prove
At 9 o'clock Saturday night the Dav
is resolutions those reported from the
committee on foreign relations amend
ed so as to include the recognition cf
the republic of CuDa were passed by
a vote of 67 to 21 , as a substitute for
the resolution adopted by the house c
All day long the contest waged witn
an earnestness , energy , ability and elo
quence seldom equaled , even in the
senate of the United States. From 10
o'clock this morning until the moment
of the final vote the intensity of the in
terest did not abate foran instant.
Under the agreement limiting the
duration of the speeches , except in
cpecific instances , to fifteen minutes
every senator who so desired had a A
opportunity to express his views.
Before the voting had actually be
gun , after 7 o'clock tonight , the great
speech of the day had been made by
Mr. White of California , wno has been
constantly and conscientiously oppos
ed to action of any kind upon the
Cuban question. The speech was a
masterly oratorical effort and attract
ed profound attention from every
No fewer than twenty-five senators
addressed themselves to the momen
tous question under consideration dur
ing the day , and while , under thn rule ,
elaborate arguments were impossible ,
the speeches were characterized by an
impassioned force and eloquence rarely
heard in or out of the halls of the
It was not until the first vote that
on the amendment of Mr. Turpie of
Indiana , providing for recognition of
the island republic had been taken
that the senate was brought face to
face with the tremendous importance
of its action.
The scene in the chamber of many
historic debates was one of incompara
ble solemnity and impressivcness. The
galleries , which had been filled appar
ently to their utmost capacity through
out the day , were masse-1 with bril
liantly attired women and men dis-
tingu'shed in all walks of public and

that he notified Mr. Spooner of Wls-
consiu , with whom hp was p-iired , that
he could not deem It fair to ho'l him
to the pair and would therefore re
lease him in order ihat he might vote.
Among the twenty-five senators who
spoke on the closing day of the dis
cussion was Senator Allen , of Ne
braska , who said he wanted to call at
tention to the remarkable scenes that
"had occurred ut the "White House on
April IL He referred to the call of the
representatives of six great powers
upon the president , and to the ex
changing of notes on the Hispano-
Amerlcan situation. He declared that
no similar scene had ever been wit
nessed in this -country. "I want to
register my protest , " said Mr. Allen ,
"against the representatives of the so-
called powers of Europe entering the
White House and telling this country
what It shall do. I cannot understand
why the president did not inform
them that this country would not tolerate
erate any interference by them ; yet
here is the first step toward the breakIng -
Ing down of the Monroe doctrine and
the destruction of the nation. And it
is understood that these same , so-called
powers are to go further and make

ACTION OF THE SENATE.
It Was the Absorbing Topc ! itt
Washington on Sunday.
WASHINGTON , April 18. Yester
day was exceptionally quiet In official
circles , and on the surface at least
there was no new developments In the
Spanisu situation. The reports of Sat
urday's action by the senate were an
absorbing subject of discussion , and
the probability of what the house will
do was uppermost in everyone's mind.
For the first time in several weeks
the president was able to devote Sun
day almost entirely to his family , and
to resume his church , going , , .which had ,
been interrupted by important Sunday
conferences with the members of the
In company -with Mrs. McKInley and
some friends the president this after
noon went for a long drive thoroughly
enjoying the country scenery , which ,
because of the spring-like weather , has
begun to put on its summer dress.
Assistant Secretary Day -was at the
White House lor a short time in the
morning and saw the president. Vice
President Hohart and Postmaster Gen
eral Gary also called whilei the presi
dent was at church.
In the war and navy departments
there was also lacking that evidence
of activity and rush which character
ized them for BO many Sundays past.
In the war department Adjutant Gen
eral Corbin was at his desk for a short
time in the morning. He said there
had been no changes in the details for
moblization or troops announced some
j days ago , nor any important assign-
j ments of officers. The proposals from
railroads for transporting the troops
from the various places where they are
now located will be opened tomorrow ,
and the expectation is that soldiers in
many instances will oegin their jour-
ne south on the same day.
Assistant Secretary Roosevelt was at
< t.ie navy department for some time
during the morning transacting mat
ters requiring his attention. He had
a visit from Commander Wilard H.
Brownson , who has just returned to
the United States from his visit abroad
where he was sent to purchase men-
of-war and munitions for the United
The commander is looking well
bronzed and says he had an enjoyable
trip , having spent practically all his
time in Italy , France and England.
He made a number of recommenda
tions and reports to Secretary Long
during his inspections abroad and will
submit the final one to the secretary
tomorrow. He asked to be excused
from discussing the results of his trip
pending his report to the secretary.
Commander Brownson during his
visit was able to guage the feeling
which the European nations have for
this country in its issue with Spain.
Concerning the Englisnmen , he re
marked that their sympathy is for us
and they are with us to a man. A
great many Frenchmen sided with
Spain , although the commander said
his observations regaring them were
based on reports -only. Italy being
one of the Latin countries , there is
an element which sympathizes with
Spain , although many of the commer
cial classes , realizing that much of the
trade of the peninsula is with the
United btates , look upon our conten
tion with favor.
Commander Brownson says that ow
ing to the uncertain state of affairs in
Europe , growing out of the eastern
cuestion. in which most of the great
nations are interested , very few really
satisfactory war ships are to be found
on the market , while in six months
from now , when possibly no one will
want to purchase any , no doubt some
will be available. Unfinished ships
and those of inferior quality were to
be obtained if desired , but the govern
ment preferred not to purchase vessels
of that kind.
The commander will leave the city
tomorrow for New York , where he is
to assume command of the Yankee , to
which he has been assigned.
St. Paul Goes to the Navy Yard.
PHILADELPHIA. Ar ril 18. The
American line steamer St. Paul , which
sailed from New York today for this
city , passed in the Delaware capes this
evening. It will reach Cramps' ship
yard tomorrow and on Tuesday morn
ing the work of trasforming it into
an auxiliary cruiser will be begun.
It is estimated that this work will
require about fifteen days. The state
room will be pulled down and will
either be enlarged to accommodate
twenty or twenty-five men in each or
being made into one large apartment
similar to the berth deck on a man-of-
war. A large portion of its bulwarks
will be removed , as well as the super
fluous deck structures , in order to
place the batteries.
Germany Shouts for Neutrality.
BERLIN , April 18. it is learned
from an authentic source that Ger
many took the lead in urging the con
tinental owpers to maintain neutral
ity in case of war between the United
States and Spain. The greatest resis-
tence offered to Germany's proposals
was from France and Austria , who ac
quiesced only with tae provision that

Influence to Bo Exerted on the
United States for a Peaceful
Germany and Russia Indifferent to
the Movement France and
Austria More Active.
WASHINGTON , April l5.It was
learned last night from high diplomat
ic quarters that an exchange of notes
had begun between the European cap
itals with a view of making strong
representations on the Spanish-Ameri
can situation. In the same Connection
an informal meeting of the ambassa
dors and ministers in this city of the
six great powers' was held to day.
Several of the establishments re
ceived cable advices from theif gov
ernments hist night as to the opening
ofthe exchange of notes. This had
been anticipated in view of the senti
ment in all foreign quarters h'ere that
action thus far taken in congress made
war inevitable. This common opin
ion had been officially reported to the
several European capitals , and it was
doubtless instrumental in starting the
active exchange between the great
The same exchange occurred a week
ago as a preliminary to the joint note
of the great powers presented to Pres
ident McKInley mildly urging a peace
ful settlement with Spain.
It is understood , however , that the
present movement Is not of the same
mild character as the former one.
Simultaneous with the opening of
the exchange word came from Madrid
that the Spanish government was
about to Issue another appeal to the
great powers of Europe' It Is under
stood that the appeal Is initatory to
the concerted action of the powers ,
and there is apparent agreement In ad
vice that the appeal will receive fav
It is said that Spain's appeal will
recite its grievances against the Uni
ted States , stating in detail the many
concessions it has made , and pointing
out that it was in response to the ur
gent representation of the six great
powers that the last concession of an
armistice was granted.
If the powers determine to act their
influence probably will be particularly
directed toward inducing the United
States to grant Spain sufficient time
within which to try the armistice re
cently proclaimed. The influence of
the powers was mainly exerted at Ma
drid ; the only action at Washington
was the courteous hope for peace.
But the present action win rather bi-
exerted at Washington than at Madrid
and the common belief is that the
Madrid authorities have reached the
limit of concessions and should now bo
given adequate to try what they
and the powers have offered as a means
of restoring peace in Cuba.
* , ? ? -is no suggestion , however ,
that this influence at present will be of
material character , but it is exepected
to be an assertion of all the moral in
fluence of tne powers in checking ten
dencies which it is believed inevitably
will lead to war.
Up to a late hour tonight word had
not been received at the various for
eign establishments that any commo.i
basis of joint action had been reached ,
although it was the general impression
that there would be little difficulty in
arriving at this common ground in
view of the prevailing sentiment
It is not so certain that all the pow
ers are ready for a step of this kind.
Germany has of late shown a disposi
tion against exerting strong influence
on the United States. Russia is
thought to be somewhat indifferent ,
France and Austria are most active in
the present note , as they were in the
former one. Not all of the great pow
ers are ready to join in the concert ,
and it is felt that the force cf such in
fluence would be lost.
The Spanish minister has not been
officially advised up to a late hour to
night that the meeting of the Spanish
Cortes had been advanced from April
25 to April 20. The press cables from
Madrid were not doubted , as it was
thought to be quite probable that
present gave condition of affairs would
lead to the assembling of the Cortes
at the earliest possible date.
There is no , doubt that the Cortes
will prepare a budget adequate to the
existing condition of affairs , which
budget will equal the $50,000.000 de
fense fund recently appropriated by
congress. It is understood that the
Spanish war budget is not likely to be
less than 250,000.000 pesetas.
The address of the queen regent
upon tKe opening of the Cortes is
looked forward to as an important fea
ture of Spanish-American affairs , as
it is definitely known that the queen
regent will deal with the existing
TKE SENATE'IN NO HURRY.
War Resolutions Present a Good
Time for Oratory.
WASHINGTON , April 15. The ac
tion of the house of representatives
in adopting its declaration upon the
Hispano-American situation , made the
senate yesterday the storin center of
the war elements. The galleries were
acked and thousands were turned
Mr. Hale ( Me. ) presented a memorial
from the National Civic club of Brook
lyn , calling attention to the necessity
in the event of war with Spain , of
repealing some of the pr ° sent naviga
tion laws. The laws as they are at
present , it is said , will prevent our
merchant vessels from sailing under
a foreign flag , while every Spanish
merchantman would be under the
French flag. ,
A message was received frota the
house transmitting to the senate the
Cuban resolution passed by the house.
By unanimous consent , at the re
quest of Mr. Davis , chairman of the
foreign relations committee , the reso
lution yesterday reported by the for
eign relations committee was laid be
fore the senate.
Mr. Turner ( Wash. ) began a speech
in which he sharply criticized the ad
ministration for the "vaccinating and
irresolute , cowardly and pusillanimous
policy pursued by it in the Cuban ques
tion. " He said that the developments
of the last two weeks had shaken the
faith in those who held the president's
ear and confidence.
Mr. Turner declared himself strong
ly in favor of the resolution pre
sented by the minority of the commit
tee on foreign relations and for so
doing said that he did not need fur
ther justification than the magnificent
state paper which accompanied the
majority report He declared , how
ever , thaf. the same malevolent Influ
ences which had paralyzed the execu
tive and almost caused the people to
revolt was still at work. If these in
fluences should succeed the whole
country would know the disgraceful
story and the nation would be sham
Mr. Turner maintained that congress
could not delegate to the president
the power to make war. "The con
gress of the United States is the or
ganized conscience of the country , " he
said , "and it is the only power which
can take the dread step of war. "
After vehemently attacking the
president for the delays which had oc
curred In the sending of the message
to congress , Mr. Turner charged that
the delay last week was not due to
the request of General Lee , but to the
fact that Archbishop Ireland had ca
bled to the Vatican In the hope that
the pope might be able to bring.about
a peaceful solution of the difficulty.
The president was waiting upon the
pope and action taken to secure that
which American diplomacy had fail
ed to obtain. Mr. Turner ridiculed
the diplomatic negotiations of the ad
ministration and demanded to know
why congress wanted more of it. He
declared that the state department ,
even with the support of the depart
ment of justice , was weak and una
vailing. At the Spanish end of our di
plomatic line we had as minister a
.man . whose desire for peace was so
strong that he refused to obey the
plain Instructions of his superiors. Mr.
Turner declared with bitter sarcasm
that with such diplomatic agents rep
resenting the United States the Mad
rid government might , eventually , for
a suitable indemnity , absolve this
country for blocking the harbor of
Havana with the shattered hull of the
Maine. The flashing sword of the
United States must be drawn for Cu
ban independence and it will be wield
ed by an arm stronger than ever. Onca
uplifted , it should never be lowered
until Spain was driven from the west
ern hemisphere. He read several tel
egrams from prominent citizens of
Washington in order to indicate the
sentiment In that state. One from
the governor declared that interven
tion without recognition of inde
pendence would be utterly unsatisfac
tory. Another from the colonel of
the First regiment , Uniformed rank
Knights of Pythias , which had ten
dered to the president its services in
case of war , directed him to withdraw
the offer , as it had been made under
the impression that they would be
called upon to fight Spaniards , not
Mr. Hoar followed Mr. Turner. He
thought that it was not the time for
impassioned rhetoric , loud declama
tion , the clapping of hands , and the
stamping of feet , but rather it was the
posRion of absolute deliberation tnat
should command such a scene and
such an occasion.
He then argued that the report c.f
cruelty and oppression in the land of
Cuba undoubtedly warranted sonic
measures which would bring peace ,
jut he doubted the wisdom of rushing
headlong into war until every diplo
matic effort had been made to bring
about an honorable cessation of hos
Then , with a voice trembling with
emotion , his head slowly shaking as
the words came forth , he told how a
captain of a company of infantry
organized in the same town in which
le was born , went forth in the morn-
ng of the revolution to hold the bridge
at Concord , and said that he was in
.he same position as that captain.
Realizing the tremendous responsi-
jilities of his high office he thonght
that whatever was done shrud be done
with an eye single to the situation. He
said he was born in a cold latitude ,
and consequently might look upon
things in a somewhat different light ;
ui.-l then , with hand raised and a pro-
bund stillnes in the senate chamber ,
le made this significant remark : "If
his country is to do a great act of In
ternational justice let us do it calmly
and deliberately. "
After several other senators b/id
spoken the house resolution was re
ported to * je senate , and on motion
of Mr. Davis was laid on the table :
A vote was about to be taken on
the motion to adjourn when Mr. Alli
son called upon Senator Davis to ar
range for an amicable adjournment if
t could be orougut about , but the
chairman , seeing adjournment was out
OL the question , asked Mr. Wellington
.o agree to an amendmen- adjourn
o a specified time , which the Mary-
and senator accepted and a roll call
demanded by Mr. Chandler. The sen-
a.e thereupon adjourned.
Springer Says It Was a Mine.
NEW YORK , APRIL 15. J&aeph A.
Springer , 'United States vice consul at
Havana , said today of the destruction
of the Maine :
"While I am not a naval expert , I
might sav that taking the report of the
experts , there can be no doubt as to
the cause of the blowing up of the ves
sel. There is no doubt that it was
blown up by a mine. We know that to
be a fact in spite of the denial of the
Spanish government. Mines were
placed in the harbor under orders of
Spanish officials , by expert men. Their
location was well known to a large
number of men. The Maine was an
chored to a buoy assigned by the har
bor master , and was brought there by
a pilot under orders of the harbor
master. It was moored over a mine
and no matter what the Spanish gov
ernment knew about the plan for blow
ing the Maine up it is responsible to
us for it"
"I want you to make we a new mar

Cleanliness begins -within. If a man isn't
clean inside , be is far from Godliness. A V1"
constipated sinner is a stench in the nostrils
of the Deity. A man -whose food tours in
his stomach , and ivhoso liver is leaden , can't
help looking at the world hatefully with
jaundiced eye , and conjuring up evil
thoughts in his tortured brain. Cleanliness
of person begets cleanliness of thought.
