The democratic and republican oppo

The demand tor time to speak la great and
there Is now no expectation that general
debate will be completed until next week.
Before the debate on the Cuban reci
procity bill was resumed In the house to
day some routine business was transacted.
Mr. Olmatead of Pennsylvania presented
the report on the conteated election case
of Fowler against Thomaa from the Third
JSorth Carolina district.
Mr. Henry of Connecticut aaked unani
mous consent to disagree to the aenate
amendments to the oleomargarine bill, but
Mr. Richardson of Tennessee objected and
the bill went to the committee on agri
culture. The house then went Into com

the first speaker. He apoke agalnat the
bill. He presented the question from the
viewpoint of the republicans who have op
posed Cuban reciprocity on account ot the
beet sugar Interests and said la part:
Sot Infrlendly to Caba.
I would not for anything have you be
lieve that we who for two montha have
been battling for what we believe to be
right were animated by any hostility or un
friendliness toward the Island of Cuba.
Such Is far from the truth. We have al
ways aided and austalned It In Us struggle.
We glory In Its approaching sovereignty.
Unt we must not forget that, while we may
sympathise with Cuba, our first daty is
toward our own people, and everything that
tends to atrengthen and develop our multi
plied resources at home and add to the
measure of our national strength and Inde
pendence should be the object of our pro
I am opposed to this measure because I
believe It is calculated to breed strife and
dissatisfaction with the other sugar coun
tries of the world, which are thus dis
criminated against. I believe It will have
a tendency to provoke commercial hostility
among the other West India islands and
our neighbors In 8oulh America.
I am opposed to the measure because In
order to give It effect It become necessary
to violate a solemn promise of the repub
lican party deliberately made In solemn
convention to the American people; be
rause I believe It will he harmful to the
agricultural and Industrial classes of the

Mr. Smith than entered upon a discussion
of the policy of protection whtob had re
sulted In the upbuilding of American In
dustrie with reference to the establish
ment of the beet sugar Industry as a rival
of the augar trust, which, be said, refined
and controlled 91 per cent of the can

manner which would destroy the Infant in

the fostering care of the republican party,

The laying of the Pacific cable referred
to In tho dispatch from Melbourne was
decided on at the Colonial congress held
in London In 1887, but the survty was not
completed until 1490. After the report was
published in 1899 an agreement was en
tered into by the Imperial government wtth
Canada and the Australasian colonies for
the construction, laying and maintenance
of an all-British Pacific cable. It was
agreed that the cable should be vested In
a board of commissioners, to be appointed
under the authority of the Imperial Par
liament, and that the governments con
cerned should appoint administrators in
proportion to their shares in the undertak
lng, the Imperial government and Canada
each taking five-eighteenths and New
South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and New
Zealand one-ninth each.
The board. It was arranged, should Issue
debentures for the payment of capital and

FAVORS HIGHER EDUCATION
Omaha Medical College Becomes Connected
With 8tate University.
REGENTS ADOPT WORKING ARRANGEMENT
Flrat Two Yfura of Medical Conrae
at Lincoln, l,aat Two at Omaha,
and Thea Cornea 1 nlver.
The regents of the University of Nebraska
at the meeting held yesterday formally
adopted the working arrangement with the
Omaha Medical college, which has already
been adopted by the trustees of the last
r.amed Institution, and which, with the
formal signing of the articles of agreement,
makes the one Institution the complement
of the other with respect to the complete
medical course of study. The first two
years of the court e will be at the University
of Nebraska and the concluding two years
t the Omsha Medical college. Upon the
completion of the course of four years di
plomas will be Issued by the University of
Nebraska. This union, or working arrange
ment, has been under discussion for several
years, but only during the last year have
definite steps been taken to secure formal
action on the part of both Institutions.
Edson Rich, recent of the University of
Nebraska, in outlining the terms of the
agreement, said: "There Is no medical de
partment In the university, and even If
one were established the hospitals In Lin
coln are not large enough to afford proper
material for clinical work for the last two
years of the medical course. We have
recognized that the Omaha Medical college
I on a good foundation with respect to the
studies in the last two years, while not so
well equipped as the University of Nebraska
as to the first two years of the medical
Will Reach Highest Standard.
"Both the trustees and the regents have
agreed that by a combination both Instltu
tions contributing, a medical course of tho
highest standard will be established. We
wil create In the university at Lincoln
department called the "School of Medicine
of the University of Nebraska.' The tuition
for the first two of the four years course
of study will be paid to the university, and
the first two years' work will all be done
at Lincoln. But the university will aot be
put to any expense on account of lectures.
The trustees of the medical college agree
that the university Is better equipped with
respect to the study of chemistry, biology
and kindred studies, while on the other
hand the medical college has superior facil
ities for the last two years of the course,
After the student completes two years'
tudy at the university he will go to the
Omaha Medical college, and upon a proper
record as to examinations the university
111 Issue a diploma covering the four
years' course. The university will bear
o part of the cost of the last two years
ork and Is In no way responsible for any
thing done In the Omaha Medical college,
except that upon a proper showing the nnl-
ersity will assume the responsibility of
Issuing a diploma.
The plan Is almost If not exactly slm
liar to that adopted by Cornell university."
continued Mr. Rich, "the last two years
of the medical course In that institution
being carried out In New York City. The
plan does not contemplate or Include
purchase by the university of any property
of any kind used by the Omsha Medical
college, nor of furnishing anything neces
sary for the two years' work in that lnstl
tutlon. The -whole work of co-operation Is
secured by bonds executed on the part
of the medical college. This Is a general
outline ot the whole matter as discussed at
various meetings attended by representa
tives of both Institutions and which came
before the regents yesterday for final
action. In addition to establishing perma
nently a course of medical study of the
highest character, we hope to create in
Omaha a lively Interest In the State uni
versity. Omaha never has had in the uni
versity Its proper quota of students, con-
iderlng population. Unquestionably this
union of work on the part of Institutions
bat have In their respective spheres earned
the highest regard Is a step that will com
mand attention on the part of every person
Interested in the cause of advanced educa
tion." Dr. Mllroy'a Statemeat.
Dr. W. F. Milroy of th Omaha Medical
college, regarding the plan of co-operative
work, said: "The plan was unanimously
adopted by the regent of th university.
It bad already been approved by th trus
tee of the Omaha Medical college. The
plan ha been under discussion for sev
eral years, but has been given special
and definite attention during the last year.
Tentative arrangement were proposed to
Chancellor Andrews laat summer. Dr.
Ward, head of the biological department
In the medical college, hag been especially
active In bringing the matter to a conclu
sion. Finally a formal draft of the arrange
ment waa prepared by Judge Pound of Lin
cola and submitted to the trustees of the
medical college for approval. This wss
given and the regents yesterday com
pleted the work except as to the formal
signing of the papers.
'Th plan la in Una of greater stability
and tends to th advancement of medical
education in the west. Chancellor An
drews ay we will have the greatest med
ical school between Chicago and th Pa
cific coast. We undergo soma financial
sacrifice by adopting the arrangement, but
we have waived that consideration In the
interest of higher education. We wltl
have the tuition of two years Instead of
the four years in the course. All liter'
tare, catalogues, circulars, etc., will be
in the nam of the regents of the univer
sity and at their expense.
Preliminary Retialrement Hlaher,
"The requirements ot the preliminary
course," continued Dr. Milroy, "will be
higher as a result of the arrangement.
W bav heretofore always maintained
tb requirement of what la known aa th
Association of American College that is,
th equivalent of a twenty-four point high
cbool record of study. It should be
known that upon giving satisfactory evi
dences of qualifications a student may ea
ter tb medical college to take the last two
years' course of study and a diploma will
be Issued by the State university. We
will continue for several years our pre
liminary course a already established, but
no new students will be taken for prelim
inary tudla. We bav a contract with
th dental college requiring us t con
tinu our preliminary course until, so to
speak, the field is cleared, when wa will
eonfin our work to tb final two year ot
the medical course. Wbll everything con

EXCLUSION BILL IN SENATE
Meaaor Declared by Opponent to Be
t necessary, t njnat and Is.
WASHINGTON, April . Throughout to
day's session of the senate the Chinese
exclusion bill was under consideration.
Mr. Galllngcr of New Hampshire and Mr.
Dillingham of Vermont opposed the bill
end Mr. Turner of Washington supported
It. Mr. Galllngcr urged that the pending
bill was unnecessary, unjust and un-American
and was clearly In contravention ot
our treaty obligations with China.
In an extended address Mr. Turner ao-
pealed to the senate to pars the proposed
bill, not merely for the protection 'of the
people of the Pacific coast states, but to
prevent the entire body politic from being
contaminated by the Chinese.
Mr. Dillingham advocated the re-enact
ment of the present Geary law. He de
clared that representatives ot the Pacific
states had expressed themselves as per
fectly satisfied with the operation of tb
existing law and that there was no proper
reason for a change, particularly as tho
change would involve great trouble and
Mr. Galllnger maintained that the pending
subject was a matter for diplomatic nego
tiation and not for congressional action.
In this connection he read Minister Wu'a

of the bill, declaring It would disturb the
friendly relations between the United
States and China.
Mr. Turner, in reply to Mr. Galllnger.
contended that the pending bill Is no more
severe than former laws for the restriction
of Chinese Immigration; Indeed, he asserted
that the bill Is practically a re-enactment
of existing law, except that It la more lib
eral in the admission of Chinese mer
chants. He defended the provision prohibiting
the employment of Chinese crews on ves
sels going to sea and said that criticism
ot it is Inconsistent with the recent action

to the Indian appropriation bill and Messrs.
Stewart, Piatt of Connecticut and Raw
lins were named as the senate conferees.
Mr. Dillingham of Vermont, resuming
hi speech In opposition to the Chinese
bill, said he was heartily In favor of a law
which would exclude Chinese laborers in
accordance with the treaty of i94. He
would vote, he said, for a substitute tor the
proposed bill which in effect would con
tinue in force or re-enact the present
Geary law. He believed that the real iiuea-
tin". i resented to congress was bow best
to protect American labor, American tit
Izenship and American progress oud prcs

tion should be afforded. The daggers ot

nd called attention to the fact that John
Flnerty, president of the American
branch of the league, was also present. He
esn Introduced Mr. Redmond. The Irish
parliamentarian showed the effect of his
work, his voice being hoarse as be opened
his remarks. It cleared as he continued
nd before the end rang through the hall
like a bell. Every reference to Charle
Parnell was received with cheers. Mr.
Redmond said in part:
In coming to America as representative
of the parliamentary party we believe that
the Irish race In all lands is a unit and
were we to receive no financial aid from
America we feel that we should consult
Ith the American branch of the race.
While this is true, we claim that we In
Ireland, and we In Ireland alone, are In a
sued, and wbll we are willing to receive
nd desire your support we would willingly
surrender that support if in consideration of
it we must surrender the right to follow
our own policies without regard to the opin
ions of others.
"I desire to emphasize the authority upon
which I speak here tonight. I speak for
no section or party of Irishmen in the old
country, but by the command of the whole
peopie ot ireiano ana eignty-mree memDers
of the British Parliament at this time. No
other representative of Ireland ever came
witn tne same power. I am aware mat in
certain quarter It has been stated that the
majority of the Irish peopl are not atls-
Bed with the demand of the Irish Parlla-I
mentary party, but at th last election In
ireiano tne people ireeiy elected tn pres-
ent party la the House of Common by over
whelming majorities in cases where any
contest was made.
Irish People Politically Inlted
"The first thing thst I bav to tell you
tonight Is that the Irish people are united
politically. For the last ten years the Irish
people bava been spilt up into factions.
km not going into a discussion of those fac
tions tonight, but I will say that Charles
Stewart Parnell was a man who had done
so much for the country that his retire
ment from political life would bring con
fusion, and I do not believe that less dls
senslon would follow In America If the
same cause existed. But with this dis
sension the Irish people were ashamed to
ask America for aid, but now the Irish
members of the House of Commons are. 1
believe, more firmly united than they were
Under Parnell In the days of the Land Lea
gue twenty years ago. My appeal comes
from a uaited Ireland.
The present union Is due almost entirely
to the work ot the United Irish League,
which is the successor of the Land League
The league represents every nationalist
constituency In Ireland. It has branches
In almost every parish In Ireland. It Is
supported by the majority of the clergy
and the hierarchy of the land. One of the
trustees ot the organization, who will
handle the funds. Is Dr. ODonnell, the
bishop of Raphoe. These things I mention
to show the force which bss united the
Irish people, north, south, east and west
Our objects are not new. They are the

Mayo twenty-five year ago. You who come
from Ireland know what Irish landlordism
haa been. The land haa been confiscated
from the native and given to those alien
from the people by blood, sympathy and
religion. Thla conditloa haa become ao
well known in England that Parliament
was forced to take from them the power
of fixing the rent upon the land which they
claim for their own. Although thla bss

"The Irish people are. witntn sigm . ot
the time when by act of Parliament the
landlord system will be wiped out and the
landlords given a fair remuneration for
their holdings, for the Catholics of the
south and the Protestsnts of the north are
united upon this question. One hundred
year ago, in th city of Belfast, Woire

be united. At the end of tb century we
find the dream cornea true.
