Defease of th President and Sec

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14. The ' j,
if nrlvat nanalOB dav of the hoiUff . '
enlivened today by an impassioned speech
from Mr. Wheeler of Kentucky In denun
ciation of what he denominated "flunkey
lam" to foreign coutitrlea. He took the re
cent atatementa emanating from continen
tal cabinet a regarding tbo attitude of Oreat
Britain during the Spaniah-Amerlcan war
aa a text for a wholesale attack upon the
trend of the United States' recent diplo
macy. He severely scored Secretary Hay
and declared that if Lord Pauncefote bad
ought, as was alleged, to circumvent this
country during the war of 1893, the sooner
he was shipped across the seas the better.
He also criticised the president for his
reported intention to send his daughter to
the coronation of King Edward and pro
tested against the offlclal reception cf
His speech aroused the house to a high
pitch of excitement and elicited from Mr.
Boutell of Illinois a spiced defense of Sec
retary Hay, whom he eulogised In high
terms. Several members took a hand and
later In the afternoon Mr. Grosvenor of
Ohio took Mr. Wheeler to task for his "In
opportune protest" and rehearsed the his

Respect for Roosevelt.
Mr. Wheeler excoriated what ha termed
the modern disposition toward "European
flunksylsm." Until 1896, he said, all
Americans had gloried in the splendid Isola
tion of the republic and Us determination
to hold aloof from foreign entangling al
liances. Less than five years ago, he de
clared, a president, "goaded on by the
pitiable flunkey In the State department,"
had stretched his arms across the seas In
adulation to the people of Great Britain
and today the government was hugging to
Its bosom that which since the battle 'of
Torktewn had systematically and persist
ently plotted our downfall. -
"I have respect '-for the present occupant
of the White Houae. I frankly avow," said
the speaker.- "I think he Is too honest to
be palatable to the average republican par
tisan. A little Quixotic, it Is true, hasty
tempered, full-blooded ant) not exactly de
sirable to many of our citizens, and I In
dulge the' hope that the lingering element
of Americanism will Induce him at the first
opportunity' to boot out that man In the

brought us -40 this humiliating condition."

For more than four years we have wit

We have swung further away from the

Things are now accepted as a matter of
course that would have shocked the Intel
ligence of our forefathers beyond endur
ance, all growing out of this atrtving to
lock arms with the great European powers
' and become a world power.
It may be well enough to treat the repre
sentatives of foreign powers with courtesy
and consideration. I no declare thit If the

LIVERPOOL, Feb. 14. Lord Rosebery re
ceived a tremendous ovation at the great
liberal demonstration her this evening.
HI lengthy speech, tha principal one of
the evening, was attentively received and
heartily applauded. He failed to throw any
fresh light upon the war situation, but he
trongly emphasized hla hostility to ths
Irish party and hla deslr to utterly alienate
It from the liberal camp.
During hi remark Lord Rosebery said
that tha greatest change had been under
gone, Mr. Gladstone' bill were dead and
burled, the Irish party had now indignantly
repudiated any connection with the liberal
party, and he believed they had acted
wisely. It wa both to their Interests and
to those of the liberal party. Th Irish
leaders had played their full hand. They
bad demanded an Independent Parliament
la Dublin, and thereupon he had cried
"halt." This remark waa greeted with ap
plause. Continuing, Lord Rosebery said: i
I m not prepared, at any time or un
der any circumstances, to grant them an
independent Parliament, No sane person
would ever consent to handing over the
destinies of Ireland, situated In the very
heart of the empire, to a Parliament con
