IS DISPLEASED WITH SHAW
London Newspaper Criticises Speech
Made by Secretary of Treasary
LONDON, April 28. The speech of the
United States secretary of the treasury, Mr.
Shaw, at Pittsburg at the banquet April 20
in celebration of the late General Grant's
birthday has thus far passed unnoticed by
the London press, with the exception of the
Olobe, which Is exceedingly wrathy at auch
a responsible politician "tickling the eara
of groundlings with a speech full of menace
to America's only friend among the powers
of Europe. After quoting the speech ths
We are not greatly concerned either for
the threat or the crude vulgarity which
causes Mr. Shaw to apply it to a particular
power, but what Impresses us with a sense
of American cadence Is the manner In
which the absurd speech was received.
Were an Engllxh minister of Mr. Shaw's
position to make a similar allusion to a
foreign power all the chancellories of
Europe would be convulsed. But England
heeds It not a whit and the rest of the
world shrugs its shoulders and talks about
diplomacy In shirtsleeves.

Give Him a Dishonorable Discharge.
CALLS SMITH A DISGRACE TO THE ARtfY
rrnnirlvanlsn Vehemently Condemns
the Methods EmsloT ei ana) the
Departare from the Keg
alar Rales of Army.
WASHINGTON, April 28 Representative
Sibley of Pennsylvania created something
of a sensation In the house today during
the general debate on the agricultural bill
by denouncing General Jacob H. Smith for
the orders he Issued In the Samar cam
paign. He declared General Smith waa a
disgrace to (he uniform he wore, and he ex
pressed the hope that the president would
strip him of bis uniform within forty-eight
Mr. Sibley's: speech waa enthusiastically
applauded by the democrats and was re
ceived with some evidences of approval on
the republican side. The speech was con
sidered the more remarkable Is that it
came from a republican who left the dem
ocratic party on the issues raised by the
Spanish war and who since has been an
ardent expansionist. Mr. William, demo
crat, of Mississippi, Indorsed what Mr. Sib
Curtis Defends Funston.
Mr. Curtis of Kansas made a brief but fer
vent defense of General Funston against the
criticism to which he had been subjected.
"The people of Kansas," he began, "are
proud of the brave and daring record of gal
lant Fred Funston. (Applause on the re
publican aide.) He has been criticised here
for an act, which for daring and conception
and execution, ranks with the greatest
feats of srms he captured the new Georgo
"If another had accomplished what Gen
eral Funston did," he said, "the democrats
would have made him their candidate for
president." He called attention to the fact
that his promotion had been recommended
by General Wheaton and General McArthur,
"both soldiers of the civil war, soldiers who
knew more of wsr and rules of war than all
the politicians in this country combined."
"And his commission," he added, "waa
signed by, the greatest president we have
ever had the soldier, statesman snd mar
tyr, William McKlnley." (Applause.)
Mr. Sibley, republican, of Pennsylvania,
said he had been an expansionist and de
fended the policy of the administration in
the acquisition of the Philippines. Duty
and honor, he said. Justified our position
there. The commercial welfare of the
nation demanded that we should control
that archipelago, which stands as the gats
way to the oriental world.
Sees Vision of Herod.
He then continued:
When I have heard the statements made
that we were cruel in the conduct of that
war I have thought, perhaps, the partisan
was speaking. Hut when I have read, as
1 have within the past forty-eight hours,
that a general wearing the uniform of
the army of the United 8tates, one who
stands under the shadow of .our flag, Is-
but to leave It a howling wilderness and
to kill all above 10 years of sge, thn It
seems to me that humanity must-have
marched backward for eighteen centuries
and that Herod again appears. I have
read of Tlmour, the Tartar: I have read
of Achilles, I have read of tha Saracen
scourge, but I thank Ood that since the
tragic scene on Calvary It has taken
In h teen centuries to produce a Smith. I
have read of the water cure. I believed
that It was exaggerated.
Can any man whose blood Bounds in hla
pulses, any man who has read his Bible
or who has been reared at the knee of a
Christian woman. Justify the perpetration
of such cruelties upon another man who
wears the guise and the image of his
Creator? And yet we hear this man at
tempting to Justify acts bv which men
are pumped so full of water as nearly to
drown them and brought back to life by
mumping tnem over tne stomach with
butts of muskets. That Is not civiliza
tion; that is not Christianizing the world.
Wants Smith Discharged.
T hope the president of the I'nited States
will nave tne courage, upon what the man
admits, to discharge him dishonorably from
me service mat ne nas aisgracea. (Ap
plause.) The conference report on the Chinese
exclusion bill was adopted without debate,
This sends it to the president.

WASHINGTON. April 28. The state de

a fugitive from Justice from St. Louis,

The man at the department's Instance

of the Mexican authorities that they will

that ths United States government will re

Thia la an embarrassing condition. Im
possible of fulfillment, for no American
court could deliver a fugitive from Mexican

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, April 28. (Special Tele
gram.) "Fences on public domain are to
come down on July 1," said a gentleman
who had a talk today with President
Roosevelt. "No matter how much pressure
Is brought to bear on the Interior depart
ment I am fully satisfied that the president

Hitchcock to be modified," said Tbe Bee's
Tomorrow the delegation of stockgrow-
ers who have been here for nearly a week.
headed by Barttett Richards of Ellsworth.
Neb., will be presented to the president
by Senators Dietrich and MIUaM. Mr.
Richards will ask the chief executive to
postpone the removal of the fences until
late In the fall and It will be Interesting
to note the result of this request In view
of the statement above.
Today Messrs. Richards, Modisett, Hill,
Ferdon snd Harris, representing the big
cattle growers of the west, finished their
hearing before tbe house committee on
Acting Chairman Mondell arked Mr. Rich
ards If it would not be well to attempt spe
cific legislation for Nebraska, providing the
delegation In congress from that state
could unite on some measure. Mr. Richards
said he had been contemplating snch a bill,
in view of tbe opposition that seemed to
exist against a general land-leasing bill
and his associates had about concluded to
ask for relief along the lines suggested.
Shallenbarscrr Declares Himself.
Representative Shallenberger, who Is a
cattle owner himself, when asked If he
would favor such a measure, said: "I would
object to any plan of leasing the public
domain that doesn't have in It Its essential
feature a homestead or Homebuilding Idea.
I am opposed to any bill which contem
plates that because a corporation or Indi
vidual having large private holdings should
therefore be entitled to lease corresponding
large tracts of government land, as this
would tend to perpetuate the owning of tbe
public domain. I would favor a measure for
the leasing of public lands In small hold
ings sufficient to support a man and fam
ily, and it Is well known It requtres a
larger number of acres to support a man
west of the 100th meridian than east of It.

Senator Gamble stated today that an

to lta passage. "From papers received

Interior must have the lands surveyed and

as soon as the public building bill becomes

probably go to Lincoln and look over the
situation, With a view of giving Nebraska's
capital a building aucb as It deaerves. Mr.
Burkett haa had a number of conferencea
with Mr. Taylor and he la enthusiastic over
the prospects for the new building, which
he believes can be built for $300,000, the
amount the omnibus bill carries.
Why Plattamouth Was Left.
Explaining why Platiauioutb was left out
of the bill, Mr. Burkett said: "The com
