WASHINGTON, April 10. (Special Tele

begun to cast about for definite results.
From close Investigation, based on a thor
ough canvass of the leaders, It appears
that the strongest showing In opposition to

finally reported from the committee of the

will be one made by the republican leader
of the opposition that the bill be recom
mitted to tbe committee on way and
means with Instructions to bring in a new
bill striking out all differentials on sugar
and admit refined sugar at the same rate of
duty aa raw sugar. Upon this motion It Is
believed that the democrats can all unite
and If the Insurgents can muster the votes
they claim In support of this proposition the
bill will be sent back to the committee,
where It will languish until the end of the
Mr. Tawney of Minnesota, who is .to close
the debate on the part of those fighting for
beet augar, said tonight that the plan of
the "Insurgent" would be to amend the
bill In committee of the whole, falling In
which no attempt would be made to carry
the fight outside.
The fact Is that tbe "Insurgents" are
playing for position and having accom
pllehed this they are willing to quit.
Mercer aad Bnrkett t'adeclded.
In a canvass of the Nebraska delegation
even the democrats are divided, while the
two republican members have not made up
their mind how they would vote on the
proposition to recommit. This Is a fair In
dication of tbe drift and It would under
these circumstances be fair to predict the
passage of the measure.

MISS STONE IN AMERICA

NEW YORK, April 10. Miss Ellen M.

looked pale and worn and aald the sea voy-
ge bad made her very 111. She waa met
t the steamer' pier by her brother.
Charles A. Stone, and by many other rela
tives and friends. Miss Stone aald the bri
gands were not ro fierce as might have
been Imagined. They said many Insulting
things, but never struck or beat either her
or her companion, Mme. Tsilka.
There have been several reports
had been held for ransom by our captors,'
said Miss Stone, "but that Is a mistake.
I was the one they wanted and they al
ways take a married woman to chaperon a
Ingle one, no matter bow old the latter
may be. Tbe brigands meant to take the
rst married woman tbey came across to
accompany me, but the one tbey first
found happened to be Mrs. Wosheva, i
native missionary and a widow, who was
very ill at the time. Mme. Tsilka was
therefore decided upon by the brigands,
for which I was very thankful afterward.
nd I will tell you why.
'Seven weeks before we were released
baby was born to Mme. Tsilka. The
brigand had by Jills time become so Insult
ing and cruel In their remarks that it was
becoming unbearable. The appearance of
the baby stopped all this, for the reason
that the brigand of Turkey believe that
curse will settle on them If they do
harm to a child or Its mother. Our treat
ment after the birth of the baby was ex
cellent. We began to get better food, al
though I must admit that It was generally
very good, and the sneering remarks
It was when the negtlatlons for our re
lease fell through or became disturbed that
we were subjected to our worst treatment.
You are to die twenty days from now,
or 'we will put a bullet In your brain aoon,'
were some of the pleasant things that tbey
said to us."
Miss Stone said she would go at once to
Massachusetts to' eee her mother, who Is
more than 90 years old.

The preaident thanked them. A company
of marines who bad acted as the president

students of the South Carolina college, who
gave a strong college yell. When a sem
blance of order waa restored the president,
who had been standing on the platform with
Mrs. Roosevelt, made a short speech, in
which he said that thla was but another
evidence of the cordial treatment he bad re
ceived while In the atate. He greatly
pleased his audience when he told them
that he was a good American when he came
to South Carolina, but he was a better one
when he left It. Considerable laughter was
caused when he grapsed the outstretched
hand of a little girl and said he waa par
tial to children because he bad half a

lenberg declaration was all right. (Then,
after a pause) Some one In the audience
has spoken of the Mecklenberg declaration.
That was the first declaration of Independ
ence In what are now the United State. To
my good fortune I have studied much of
the early history or North Carolina. I
know the part you played in the revolu
tion In winning the great west for the re-
f ubllc. I feel that you deserve to be called

Its employes authorized to receive and "as

LATHROP, Mo., April 10. There Is a re
port here that President Roosevelt's order
to Investigate the British mule purchases
In America includes an examination of the
mule yards here at Latbrop. Mulea are
sent from bere to New Orleans, wbere tbey
are eent to South Africa. There are ten
British officers here. They say the British
government does not own a dollar of the
property in Clinton county and that no
horses have been bought by the British
War department In the United States. The
purchases were all made In South Africa,
these British officers say.
Tbe attention of Governor Deckery wae
called to the atatement that the British
government has been- buying horses and
mules here for nearly a year.
Major J. Moore, who Is at the head of the
ten Britlah officers, when asked tbe posi

that are being made In tbe United States,
is quoted as saying that he was practically
here the aame as any private citizen would
be,1 although he Is an army officer and has
seen active service In Sou A Africa. He
said the British government does not buy
the horses and mules here, but has sent
some of Its army officers and veterinary
surgeons here to Inspect 1 the horses and
treat them before they are sent to South

LOWTHER WILLAPPEAL CASE
Deposed Minister Jostl0.es HI Doc
trines by Examples of Meth
M'PHERSON, Kan., April 10. Rev.
Granville Lowtber haa decided to appeal
from tbe verdict of tbe trial committee In
the recent Methodist Episcopal conference
at Arkansaa City, which found htm guilty
of teaching heretical doctrines and deposed
blm. H says:
Many Methodist urge me to appeal be
cause they think the decision is an In
justice to their domination on the ques
tions Involved and commits them to old
statementa which no educated man be
lieves. Bishop Andrew in a recent address n
llvered to the candidate for orders In the
Haltlmore conference, emphasised the aame
teachings for which I had been exel!eil.
Hlehop Warren is a scientist of the mod
ern tvpe. Hlshop Vincent Is tn avowed
evolutionist and higher critic; Bishop Fos
ter Is accounted heterodox In the teachings
of his book, "Beyond the Grave."
My lawyer says six of the eleven men
who sal on the trUI committee had seen
my essay on which the charges were based
arid had It argued Into them as heretical
before the conference met. The men who
prefered the charges against me and who
sat on the Jury were men not posted on
evolution, higher criticism or the scientific
side of the atonement, and'tnost of them
hove never read a standard book on any
of those subjects. I think If the case were
taken before men of broader range of
vision the decision would be reversed.

Tbe governor on tho lengthy detail tells

Woald Concentrate Force.
In another report he says:
As civil governor I feel it my duty to
say that It Is my firm conviction that the
1'nlted States troop should at the earliest
opportunity be concentrated In one or two
garrisons, If It Is thought desirable that
the good sentiment and loyalty that for
merly existed to tha United State among
the people of thla province should be en
lietng In close touch with the p"P'.
having visited all th pueblo on or more
times, having lived with them In their
homes, 1 know that uch a sentiment one
existed. Of late, by reason of th conduct
of tho troops, such a the extensive burn
ing of tho barrieos In trying to lay . wast

not occupy It. the torturing of natives by
so-called water cure and other methoda. In
order to obtain Information, th h a rail
treatment of natives generally and the fall- t
ttre of Inexperienced lately appointed tte't-
tenants commanding posts to distinguish
between tl one who are friendly and those
unfriendly and to treat every native as If
he were, whether or no, an Inaurrecto at
heart, this favorable sentiment above re
ferred to is being fast destroyed and a deep
hatred toward us engendered.
If these things need be done they had
best be done by native troopa, ao that the .
people of the United States will not be
credited therewith. Almost without ex
ception soldiers, and also ' many officers,
reier to natives In their presence aa

understand what the word "nigger" means.
Prraent Coarse Urroneon.
The course now being pursued In this
province and in the provlnws of Uatangaa,
l.aguna anil Samar Is, In my opinion, sow
ing needs for a perpetual revolution against
im hereafter whenever a good opportunity
offers. Under present conditions the po
litical situation in thla province is slowly
retrograding and the American aentiment
is decreasing and we are dally making
in the course above referred to troops
make no distinction, often, between the
property of those natives who are Inaur
gents or Insurgent sympathizers and the)
property of those who heretofore have
risked their Uvea by being loyal to the
United States and giving us Information
against their countrymen In arms. Often
every house in a barrio Is burned.
In my opinion the small number of Irre
concilable Insurgents still In arms, l- j
though admittedly difficult to catch, doe
not Justify the meana employed, especially
when It la taken Into consideration the suf-,
ferlng that must be uudergone by the

Natives Favor Commission.' Law.
The work of the Philippine commission
and the lawa that have been enacted by It
are everywhere favorably commented upon
by the natives, i ne errorts Deing maae
for the general education of the people
are annrerlated bv all. The provincial arov-
ernment and the municipal governments es
tablished are slowly Dringtng oroer out or
chaos and anarchy, and there begins to bo
visible everywhere In thla province progress
and prosperity. True loyalty and content
ment can only come under a benign civil .
The attitude of the army, thereby mean
inn most of its otHcera and soldiers. Is.
however, decidedly hostile to the provincial
and municipaiuan government in una
iirovlntr and to civil government In these
islands in general.
In Manila especially It Is Intensely ao,
even among the higher offlcera. The work
of the commission in the establishment of.
provincial governments Is ridiculed even In
the presence of the natives. It Is openly
stated that the army should remain In
charge for the next twenty years. Out
rages crmmltted by officers and soldiers
against natives In an organised munici
pality and province, when reported by th
presidente or governor to the military au
thorities are often not punished.
This in my opinion Is unfortunate be
et use loyal natives begin to fear that local
self-government will not last long and that
any alight disturbance In a province may
at any time be made the pretext to again
place It under military rule, and thla I

It has been stated that a Filipino or an
oriental does not appreciate Just or kindly
treatment and that he considers It an evl

found that just and kind treatment, uni
