WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. An Important

after 10 o'clock by Senators Allison, Aid

Representatives Cannon and Grojvenor and
the conference lasted until a tew minutes
It Is something of a coincidence that

la the famous conference a few weeks prior
to the' Spanish war, which resulted In the
definite conclusion that congress should

Previous to the conference the president

It were unusually iretlcent. -
The fact. that the senators are members
of the steering committee of the serial e
and Speaker Henderson and bis. two lieu

control legislation in the house, gave res
tthe ballot that the consultation referred
to the legislative progiam In congress and
might have a bearing upon the shaping of

There also was an Intimation that' the
president talked with his hearty leaders In

FILIPINOS NOT GOOD JURORS
Long Aceastomed to t'orrnpt Coeirta
They Have Aeqatrd the
WASHINGTON. Feb. lS-Jhe hearing of
Governor Tatt on the Philippines question
by tbo senate committee on the Philippines
began today with a, series ot questions by
Senator Patterson In regsrd to the fitness
of Filipinos for jury duty. Mr. Patterson
asked whether the ' native population on
which-the voting franchise Is bestowed
could not be trusted to do Jury duty. The
governor replied In the negative, saying
they are so ui-d to corruption In the admin
istration of Justice that (hey could" hot be
trusted. "They need to be trained," he
said, "to have examples; they are not yet
ready for Jury duty."
Referring to the code of procedure In the
Islands, Governor Taft aald in reply 'to a
question by. Senator Culberson that It is
an American code rather than a Spanish
code. Under the Spanish regime, said Gov
ernor Taft. the courts were not only slug
gish, but notoriously corrupt, and that the
first courts established by General Otis
were no better. Under Spanish rule there
was a substantial denial of Justice.
Referring to the petition nf the federal
party Governor Taft said all the cases of
Imprisonment referred to there were for
military rod not civil offenses. Practically
there are no civil prosecutions for political
offenses at this time. Governor Taft said
that tbo original draft of the federal party
platform had been submitted to the com
mission and that tha.-4eclaratlon tor state
hood was then -mora explicit' than waa
"My recollection." he said, "Is that we
said to the representatives of the party
that this , must be far In the future and
that we could make no promises one way
or the otbor" , .. ..'
"Is not the commission responsible for
the formation of the federal party?" asked
"No. sir; It waa not.'V Governor Taft
responded. He gave the names of several
prominent Flllplnoa who had assisted In
the organisation. They had, be aald, con
sulted the members of the commission and
the latter had encouraged the formation
as far as possible because the party-was
for peace. The promise of statehood had
been no prominent part of the missionary
work of the leaders.

IRELAND CONDEMNS ANARCHY
Wule Imtad Coinitatiei if Neermrv te
OFFERS THREE PLANS tt LEGISLATION
Is Afplaaded la Hla Virile Denuncia
tion of 'Enemies . of Liberty,"
Whom He Woald Kirlnde
CHICAGO, Feb. 15. In the name of liberty
Itself Archbishop Ireland ot St. Paul to
night demanded the passage of federal
laws for the suppression of anarchism, the
enemy of liberty.
Speaking at the monthly dinner of the
Merchant's club the archbishop specified
three kinds of legislation to this end, each
of which be regarded as essential to the
welfare of the country. By the first an
archist immigration must be excluded; by
the second the lire of the chief executive
must be effectually protected; by the third
the formation 'of plots on American ' soil
against the lives of foreign rulers must be
prohibited and in case congress has no au
thority for such legislation the archbishop
saw his way forward unhesitatingly. "Let
the constitution be so amended that this
authority be allowed it beyond a doubt,"
ho said.-. "The matter Is of sufficient seri
ousness to wsrrant the proposal of an
amendment to the constitution."
Of the so-called philosophical anarchist
Archbishop Ireland bad no good to speak,
and he received a round of applause when
"As It Is men who dress up such theories
In florid language and cover them with the
respectability of a respectful name do Im
mense harm and should receive the scorn
and contempt of right-thinking men."
The subject assigned to Archbishop Ire
land was "The Limitations of Liberty."

Americans build the best tbat marine
His majesty, free from Jealousy, admires
American ingenuity, and as proof has placed
the order. He has sent bis brother to
witness the launching, and this unreserved
action la a compliment to the Americans
and the emperor alike. The prince has
no political business in view, -but regards
It as Important thst two racially related
nations, who have no politico to fight out
anywhere in the world, but on the con
trary have manifold attachments, should
be drawn nearer together in mutual confi
dence and respect.
Emperor William has ordered that a brief
report of the visit be cabled to blm daily.
He has also ordered Prince Henry to write
a detailed . report of his experiences and
observations during the trip. Prince Henry

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. The Associated
Press today received from 'authentic
Sources a statement regarding the report
that Prince, Heury bad written a letter of
apology to Admiral Dewey. The Informa
tion which follows waa not received from
Admiral Dewey himself, but an intimate
fj-land. of his,' .and can be absolutely
vouched for: , , .
Tha admiral has , recently received a
letter from a member of the United Statea
embassy at ' Berllp, la which the writer
g;ave a - resume of k' conversation he had
had -with 'Prince Henry of Pruasfa at the
dinner given the . Jitter by Ambaasador
White prior to the prlnce'a departure for
Amer)oe. .; : ...
In conversation the prince, referring to
his having .hoped to return from the east
via Sao Francisco after bis service In the
China squadron, but having been obliged
to hasten borne via Sues on account of his
mother's Illness, In bis usual candid man
ner and agreeing with a remark tbat the
present was a much more opportune time
for his visit, said: ,
I know you Americans feel very sore
about affalra In the east and I do not
blame you. I myself made a mistake
which 1 eee Is now being exploited by the
English presb to create a prejudice. When
at Hong Kong at a dinner on Deutsch
land (the prince's flagship in the east)
Commodore Dewey was present .and was
the senior ofljeer. There were two Russians
and Kngllxh and omefra of other nations
when I proposed the health of. first, the
czar of Kussla, then others, and last of
all that of the president of twe United
States. Dewey waa offended as I learned
the next day and 1 realised I had made a
great mistake. I Immediately went on
board Olympla and saw jJewey, wno ac
cepted my apology most graciously.
The prince added that he was well aware
that mistakes bad' been made on their part,
but that bis relations with Admiral Dewey
had alwaya been of the most agreeable and
pleasant character. He aent hla highest re
garda to the admiral and expressed his sin
cere hope ot seeing bint during hla vlslt

GIGANTIC SWINDLE THOROUGHLY EXrOStD
Trial of Officers Whose Company
Rever Earned an Honest Divi
dend Herr Schmidt's Fas.
BERLIN, Feb. 16. The prospecta of tha
tariff bill grow more dismal. The majority
of the committee continues to vote amend
ments, agatnat tha warning of the govern
ment. An amendment providing for the
abolishment ot the municipal Octroi duttea,
still in vogue in aome towns, received an
overwhelming majority of votea after the
imperial secretary of slate for the Interior,
Count Poeadowskl-Wehner, had announced
that it was contrary to the constitution and
that constitutional revision was necessary
before the abolition of those duties could
be effected. The amendment adopted yester
day fixing January 1, 1806, for definitely
putting tha aew tariff law In force la a atep
of the agrarians and la intensely embar
rassing for the government, since It Is not
certain when the treaty negotiations can be
concluded, and the amendment la plainly
designated to compel the government to In
vite tariff wars, through denunciation of the
present treaties before new ones are con
cluded. Aatl-Amerlcan Animas,
The agrarians in discussing the amend
ment abowed their usual antl-Amerlcan
animus. Count von Kanlta, the agrarian
leader, again argued that the United Statea
could not aflord a tariff war with Ger
many, aaylng it would bo "downright sui
cide," owing to the heavy excess of Amer
ican exports to Germany. Tha VoSsische
Zeliuog answers this assertion, by showing
that tha Immense German imports of raw
materials from the United States are neces
sary cotton, 269,000,000 marks; corn, 104,.
000,000 marks; copper, 101,000,003 marks;
lard, 69,000,000 marks; petroleum, 68,000,000
Trial of Swindle's Offleers.
The trial of the officers ot the Treber
Trocknund company ot Cassel, caused a
great aensatlon. The newspapers filled!
many columns with details of the trial
which brought out the history of the com
pany's meteoric career, showing it to have
been a gigantic swindle from the begin
ning, though Director Schmidt aucceeded
In deceiving the board of overseers until
the crash came. They trusted him com
pletely, while distributing 60 per cent
dividends from fictitious stocks, hoodwink
ing the Lei pal ger bank and hla own over
seers and making Immense advances.
Kever an Honest Dividend.
Ths evidence Indicated that the company
never earned an honest dividend and that
It waa a humbug throughout, even ' when
Its shares were manipulated up to 1900,
The concern waa founded In 1889 with a
capital of 850,000 marks for utilising tha
waste producte ot breweries. Later It pur.
chased a patent wood distilling method
which proved worthless, nevertheless, Herr
Schmidt captured the confidence of the
public, and waa able to raise the company'a
capital to 20,000,000 marks. In a doten
parts he established branch wood distil
leries In all the leading continental coun
tries, not . one of which bad paid expenses.
Yet Herr Sshmtdt succeeded In launching
rose-colored reports of ths company'a busi
ness. The overseers confessed that they
were so fascipated by Herr Schmidt that
they trusted hlra without any examination
of the affaire of the company.
