'What an awful thought Is It that even

We could hold a federal parliament, five

Mr. Rioles arlded: "The only thing feas

the world, to be ievoted to suchsn oh

There was Mr. Rhodes' dream of tran-

"The present position of the English
house Is ridiculous. Tou might as well ex

personally counted his dirty linen before
he sent It to the wash, and to have re

"It would have been better for Europe

Dealing with the "sacred duty of the
English-speaking world of taking the re
sponsibility for the still uncivilized world,"
and commenting upon the necessary de
parture from the map of such countries as
Portugal,' Persia and Spain, "who are found
wanting." Mr. Rhodes said:
"What scope! ' What a horizon of work
for the next two centuries for the best
energlea of the best people In the world."
On the matter ot tariffs Mr. Rhodes was
characteristically positive: "I note," be
said, "with . satisfaction, that the com
mittee appointed to inquire Into the Mc
Klnley tariff report that In certain articles
our trades have fallen off 60 per cent. Yet
the fools do not see that If they do not
lookout they will have England shut out
and isolated with 90,000,000 to feed, and
capable of Internally supporting about
6,000,000. If they had a atateaman they
would at the present moment be commer
cially at war with the Vnited States and
would have boycotted the raw products of
the United State until (he came to her

Ignorant of Their Greatness.
"Tour people have not known their great
Dei. They posses one-fifth of the world,
and do not know it Is slipping away from
them. They spend their time in discussing
Mr. Parneli and Dr. Tanner, the character
of Sir Charles Dllke, compensation for beer
houses, and omne hoc genus. Your supreme
question at present is the seizure ot the
labor vote for the next election. Read the
Australian election bulletins and see what
undue pandering to the laboring vote may
lead you. You drive your manufacturers
to Belgium, Holland and to Germany, Just
'as you have placed a great deal of cheap
shipping trade in the. hands of Italy by your
stringent shipping regulations." ;
Here this political will and testament,"
a Mr. 8tead calls It, abruptly betakes off.
Mr. Stead commenting on tills, says:
"It la rough and Inchoate, and almost
aa uncouth as one of Cromwell's speeches,
but the central idea glows luminous
throughout. It ideal I the promotion of
racial unity on the basis ot the principles
embodied In the American constitution."

The vote waa In reality more embarrass-
Ing to the democrat than to the repub
lican, as the members of the minority
had called a conference for tonight, at
which they desired to get together on a
course of action. The vote forced the
handa of the democrat a Individual be
fore the caucua. Mr. Payne, the repub
llcan leader, opened tha debata for th
bill today in a strong speech, which com
manded close attention from both aide of
Difference of Democrat.
There were only two other' speeches,
Mr. Newlanda, a democrat from Nevada,
took the position that the concession should
not be made to Cuba, unless It were in
vlted at the same time to become a part
of the United States. Mr. McClellan, a New
York democrat, who was the last speaker,
favored a 60 per cent reduction for the
benefit of Cuba, but gave notice' that tt
tha rata of reduction waa not Increased. he
would vote for the bill. Ho contended
that reciprocity was In line with time
honored doctrine, and that while repub
lican might fear It, democrats should not.
Mr. Payne was very Insistent . on hi
contention that the Cuban planters would
reap the advantage ot the to pel: cant re
duction ot th duty, and that tha Sugar
trust would get ndthlng. . "
Mr. Payne then turned hi attention to
the benefit which - would accrue to) the
United Btate. Ho said It bad been pre
dicted that in a few years w would have
the bulk of the Cubsn trade, and that our
exports to that country would reach 1200,.
000,000. Ha also dwelt u&on the other ad
vantage the exclusion of cheap labor from
Cuba by tha enactment of our Immigration
and labor lawa would bring.
"Do you propose to treat Cuba as If It
were a part ot th United States 7" asked
Mr. Lloyd of Missouri.
Looks Out (or tho Fntnre. ,
"Quba Is not now a part of tho United
Staus," replied Mr, ' Payne. "I do not
want It to be, but I believe It will be, and
so believing, I am In favor of preparing It
aa beat we can for the day of Its incor
poration within our limits."
W. A. Bmlth ot Mlchlgaa created some
amusement by springing on Mr-. Payne an
extract from a speech mad by Mr. Payne
during th consideration of,. tha. Dlngley
bill, when Mr. Payne said that If th beet
sugnr Industry war . established in this
country th tariff would aot be disturbed
for twenty-five year.
"W took you at your word." said Mr.
Smith, "and w invested $10,000,000 Is
Michigan In tha Industry."
Mr. Newlanda of 'evada delivered th
opening argument against tho bill. H
took the ground that there should be no
concession to Cuba unleas It was accom
panied by a cordial InvltaUoa to beoome a
nart of tha United Btate. Th conces
slon to Cuba, h said, would not 'cheapen
sugar to th American consumer,
Bait (or Aaaoaatlua.
Mr. Nwlads said th republican party,
In utter disregard of th Teller resolution
has sharply urtalld th Independenc of
Cuba by forcing upon it the adoption of
th Piatt amendment. Th purpose of th
republican party,. h said, waa clearly to
hedg Cuba about with so many irritating
restrictions upon Its sovereignty as to mak
Its position intolerable to mak it an
humble suppliant for annexation.
Mr. McClellan ot New Tork. a member
f th way and mean committee, who fa
vore a greater coacaMloa to Cuba than Is
granted by tha bill, followed.
Ia arguing tho obligation of the United
State to relieve th present ' dlstreaa In
Cuba and of our duty atart th new re
public under th most tavorabf auspices.
THE OMAHA DAILY " BEE: WEDNESDAY,
Mr. McClellan told of the Interview be
tween President MrKinley snd the Cubsn
commissioner when the president advised
them to return to Cuba and secure the ac
ceptance ot the Tlatt amendment.
Tribute ta MrKinley.
"President MrKinley." ald he, "told
them he could make no promises, but be
asked them to trust the United Btstes.. We
can pay no higher tribute to the martyred
president's memory," added Mr. McClel
lan, "than to show here that In his estimate
of his country and In his countrymen he
was not mistaken." (Applause.)
Mr. McClellan defended his sdvocacy of
the reciprocity, Insisting that reciprocity
bad been democratic doctrine since Thomas
Jefferson's day. In conclusion Mr. Mc
Clellan argued that the 20 per cent con
cession would not afford sufficient relief to
Cuba and he gave notice that he would try
to amend It by increasing the rate of re
duction. Falling in that, he would vote
for the bill, because It would breach' th
wall of protection and lower part ot
preposterous Dlngley. rates.
The house at 6:06 p. m. adjourned.

the house today showed about sixty dem
ocratic members for the bill, which will
much more than offset the republican de
fection from the measure.
Representative Hay of Virginia was in
the chair tonight and ninety-two demo
cratic members" were present. For the
first hour the discussion was animated
and at times there was much confusion.
Chairman Hay's gavel beating In a lively
manner to preserve order.
Mr. Underwood of Alabama -and several
other members proposed making the action
of the meeting binding.
The main discussion was on a resolution
presented by Representative Burleson ot
Texas, proposing a 20 per cent tariff re
duction, on number of specified articles,
a substitute by Representative Suiter of
New York, proposing fifty per cent reci
procity with Cuba, and an amendment by
Representative Newlands of Nevada, that
this 60 per cent concession be accom
panied by a proposition of annexation. Mr.
Burleson's resolution specified that the 20
per cent tariff reduction should be .made
on nails, barbed wire, fending wre; cotton
bagging, cotton ties, binding twine and
wood pulp used In making printing papers;
also that the differential be taken off
The debate took a wide range and finally
all of the foregoing propositions were laid
on the table, practically without opposi

united action could be secured on any of
the plans proposed. 1
GIVES REBATE ON EXPORT DUTY
Provision of Philippine Act Ordered
Ists Effect by 8eere
'' '' iary Root. ' ' ' '
WASHINGTON,' April . Secretary Root,
after Consultation with the treasury au
thorities, has Issued instructions to Acting
Civil Governor Luke Wright of the Phil
ippine Islands, to give effect to that part
of the Philippine tariff act which provides
for a rebate of the export duties on goods
shipped from the Philippine Into the
This matter is realized to be one of
great Importance and has caused much
agitation in Europe, especially In London,
where the vast Manila rope Industry Is
threatened with a severe blow, by the ad
vantage that will be given to ropemakers
In the United States through the remission
of the export duty which will be collected
In full from European shippers. Aside
from hemp the regulations apply to all
raw materials coming from the Philippines
on which export duties are levied.
It Is believed that through the opera
ttons of this discriminating law there will
be a large addition to the number ot United
States bottoms and a considerable addition
to the manufacturing interests here. It Is
hoped by this and other Important steps
to be taken later to make the United
States a vast collecting snd distributing
mart for the world's tropical goods.
The principal point In the secretary's
Instruction Is that which require the col
lection at Manila or other Philippine porta
of export duties, In every case, whether
the goods go to America or to Europe or
to the Orient. But provision is made for
the return of tho tax to th American
ablpper If tha goods are actually landed
and worked up In the United States. -

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON., April 8. (Special Tele
gram.) Senator Klttredge and Representa
tive Martin of South Dakota bad an Inter
view with Secretary Root today regarding
the permanent buildings, which are to be
erected at Fort Meade, in keeping with the
recommendations the army board appointed
to select permanent garrisons. Fort Meade
Is to hsve headquarters snd eight troop
of csvalry and the temporary structures
sre to be replaced with buildings of a
permanent character. Quartermaster
General Ludlngton has estimated that the
new buildings will cost 1656,000, and as the
representatives of South Dakota desire the
work to progress ss rspldly aa possible,
they are anxious to know Just what amount
of money the War department can use
this yesr. Hence their call. It was thought
by South Dakotans that a portion of the
el.BOO.OOO carried In the army bill tor
barracks and sjuarters might be est apart
for use at Fort-Meade, but they received
so little encouragement that they have
decided to ask congress for a specific ap
propriation of HOO.OOO to be immediately
available, so thst the work of construction
may not be delayed. It la expected that
it wllL, take dvo years to complete Fort

REPORT SHOWS SOME EXORBITANT BILLS
Statement f Ueaeral Vaunar Indicates
Lark of Competitive Rids Accounts
for Part of Heavy K
pendltnres. WASHINGTON. April 8 Secretary Root
today sent an answer to the hansa resolu
tion adopted on March l-", calling upon him
for all facts that have come to his knowl
edge as to the conduct of the transom
service between Ssn Francisco and the
Philippine Islands. The answer Includes
the reports of Inspector General Chamber
lain and Lieutenant Colonel Maui. The re
ports of the various officers enclosed bv
Secretsry Root covers several hundred
pages. Major General B. M. Young, In
transmitting the report of Lieutenant
Colonel Chamberlain, submits an analysis
of the report showing no adequate super
vision to any feature of the fitting out of
transports for a long time after the service
was inaugurated and later the efforts to re
form the system. General Young specifies
lack of securing competitive bids.
General Young also specifies the case nf
"an Inexperienced man, who knew nothing
about paints, being employed to supervise
painting, In a business where the painting
bill of a single firm In two years and two
months amounted to 8343,074."
Pay Kxorbltant Prices. .
Prices paid forr material were often
strikingly In excess of the then current
market price's' fdr the 'samo articles of like
quality end' supplies '-were purchased In
open market. Without advancing. It Is
further stated In General Young's summary
that "preference seems to have been shown
special firms to the point of ordering from
them articles out of their line of business,
the firms at the same time charging exorbi
tant prices, to the extent, in a few In
stances, of 100 per cent In excess of ruling

Lieutenant Colonel Chamberlain specifies
In detail the features summarized by Gen

done on Logan was defective, also

Reports Gradual Improvement.
In his conclusion Colonel Chsmberlaln
ssys most ot the abuses were unavoidable
and that there has been gradual Improve
ment. He says that there are but three
firms In San Francisco equipped for ex
tensive repair work, and that they had an
understanding among themselves by which
there baa been no real competition.
Colonel Chamberlain aays that one of
the most notable abuses has been the use
of great quantities of high priced dlHlnfect
ants. The transport Thomas, he says, on
five trips used $9,295 worth. ' He says there
also has been excessive use of high priced
patent cleaning and polishing material,
Thomas using $3,343 worth In five trine.
He sdds that this sbuse has been reme

forth. He states that the transport Meade
was purchased when twenty-seven years
old for $400,000, and has since received
$580,000 In repairs.
In a report dated August 20, 1901, Colonel
Oscar F. Ling, general superintendent of
army transport service at San Francisco,
replies to Co!onel Chamberlain's Inspec
tion report. He points out the magnitude
of the service, suddenly brought into ex
istence, snd the systematizing of affairs as
fast as possible. He says the service has
survived the period when It wss most
subjected to criticism and attack and that
mistrust has given wsy to confidence since
Its method and meana have acquired the
sanction of success. The report says It la
