NOT IMPELLED BY BEST OF MOTIVES
With Senator Hoar He Defends the
Work of (he Philippine tnminli-
lon ( armark of Trnnra
are Seeks Cover.
WASHINGTON, May . For almost four
hour today the discussion on the Philip
pine question raged In the senate. It wss
started by Mr. Beverldge of Indiana, who
made some sharp strictures on the mem
bers of the opposition because, aa he said,
they persisted In telling In their speeches
only one side of the story. While he ad
mitted that some outrsges had been com
mitted by American aoldler in the Philip
pine, It was true, too, that unparalleled
kindness had been shown by the American
troops to Filipino prisoner and Filipino
wounded. Food and medicine, be said, had
been ahared with them, and they had been
succored on the battlefield and cared for
tenderly in the hospitals. While saying
that the omission to tell this side of the
story by the democrats was Unintentional
he suggested that it was unfair to make an
arraignment of the American soldier and
not tell both sides.
Democrats Resent Imputation.
Mr. Carmack and Mr. Rawlins warmly
resented any imputation of onfalrnesa. Mr.
Rawllna declared that no partisan motives
had actuated the opponents of the present
1'muppine policy, but that they were moved
only by patriotism and love of country.
Mr. Turner of Washington delivered a
scathing criticism of tha methods practiced
by the military authorities in the Philip
pines, dwelling particularly on the alleged
order of General Smith, whom he de
nounced as a moeter In hitman form. He
urged the Philippine commission to turn
all the light possible on the Philippine
question to the end that the people might
be fully informed on the situation.
Mr. Hoar of Massachusetts briefly de
fended th action of the Philippine commit
tee, saying that already it had furnished
much valuable Information. He urged that
the committee. In all Justice, should call
some prominent Filipinos to testify In thetr
Reminders of Mortality.
In his Invocation In the senate today
Rev. Dr. Mllburn. the blind chaplain, re
ferred feelingly to the unparalleled fact of
the death of three member of the house of
representative In four days. His allusion
was : -
Let those solemn end frentient r.mlnHQ,a
of our mortality come home to us all with
impressive weignt, and so may we walk
in the world that when we depart hence
It may be well with us.

A bill to apportion the term of office of
senators elected at the first general elec
tion held in the territory of Hawaii waa
Mr. Beverldge, a member of the Philip
pine committee, then addressed the senate
to correct, a h said, an unintentional mis
statement made by Mr. Rawllna of Utah
concerning the application of the water
cure to Filipino who had burned Sergeant
O'Herne to death. He read from the testi
mony to show that Mr. Rawlins' statement
was not accurate.
Mr. Hoar of Massachusetts Inquired It it
was a fact proved by testimony that Amer
ican soldiers had tortured Filipinos until
they had confessed to tha commission of
Water Core In O'Herne Case.
Mr. Beverldge said it had been proved
that the water cure bad been administered
in tha dreadful O'Herne case. By the con
fession of the Filipinos to whom the water
cure had been given it had been learned
that O'Herne had been burned to death
over a alow Are and his body subsequently
had been hacked to pieces. The confession
of the Filipinos Included the location ot
O'Herne' remains. Investigation disclosed
those remains, which were Identified.
Mr. Beverldge and Mr. Patterson became
Involved in a spirited colloquy over the
treatment of the Filipino by the Ameri
can soldiers, which was Interrupted by Mr.
Carmack of Tennessee, saying:
"Th conduct if American soldiers in the
Philippines wa uniformly kind wherever
it was permitted to ba so. In cases where
it was otherwise they were driven to the
cruelties by their superior officer."
Glad to Hear aa Apology.
Mr. Beverldge aald he was glad at this
late date to bear an apology for attacks
made upon th American soldier and In
quired If Mr. Carmack could mention more
than a single instance where an officer
had ordered th administration of torture to
Mr. earmark replied that he had not re
ferred to any special order, but that the
general order of Generate Bell and Chat
fee indicated that In th opinion of those
officer th American troop wer treating
th Filipinos too kindly.
Mr. Beverldge ridiculed this answer of
Mr. Carmack, declaring that when he asked
him a direct question he replied in a dla
phanoua way of th order of Bell and
Chaff. The -minority senators, he said,
hould confine themselves to the record a
mad and in connection with the Instances
of cruelty, which all bitterly regretted
tbey should in Justice show that the Fll
Iplno prisoners had received the same food,
the sams medicine and had been attended
in th same hospitals by the same nurses
as the American aoldier.
Rawllna Say Ha Wa Accurate,
Mr. Rawlins of Utah contended that every
statement he had mad in his discussion ot
this question waa essentially accurate. II
discussed th O'Hern case and said tha
opinion he had gotten from the teatimony
had been that th Filipino had been In
duced to make th confession suggested to
them by the administration of the water
cure. He resented Mr. Beverldge' impu
tatton that th minority waa arraigning the
American soldiers. Mr. Rawllna aald out
ragsa in the Philippine wer due, not to
th soldier themselves, but to th highest
military authorities tn the islands. The
responsibility tor them. Indeed, was to be
placed properly at tha door ot th admlni
tratloo official her in Washington.
"Until recently." said he, "I had thought
that those thing war sporadic and iso
lated, but I hav bean forced to th belief
that they ar but a part of th geaeral plan
Turner Open I' p.
Mr. Turner of Washington spoke upon th
bill. He declared It unwise, unpatriotic
cruel and Inhuman to attempt to make
the Philippines a permanent part et th
territory ot th United State. He then
criticised th refusal of th senate com
mlttee on th Philippine to summon Ag
ulattldo, Mablnl, Major Gardener and others.
H would feel constrained, he aald, if the
present methods of th Philippine com
mitts ar continued, to declare that it
doe not want th truth, but it la deter
mined to strangle th truth, our armies
under th compulsion of superior authority
ar strangling liberty In th Philippine
If any senator, - asked Mr. Turner, had
conceived at th time th treaty with Spain
wa pending that it would lead us lata u
with the Filipino, would that treaty hav
received a single vote.
Mr. Turner referred to the order of Gen
eral Jacob II. Smith, and said that it re
mained for the American soldier, the high
en type of civilisation, in a quarrel not
having ths sliigie element of religious
differences, prosecuted upon professedly
humanitarian grounds, to raise his name
to the helahth of bloody Infamy.
"Lust of dominion," said Mr. Turner,
"greed of conquest overruled the sober
Judgment of the American officials and
drove ua Into tbl war."
He etrongly urged the Philippine com
mittee to summon every witness who could
possibly throw any light on It.
The resolution of the house announcing
the death of Hon. Joshua S. Salmon of
New Jersey was then laid before the sen
ate and Messrs. Kean, Dryden, Burnham,
Beverldge, Heltfeld, Foster of Louisiana add
Bacon were appointed a committee to at
tend the funeral.
Aa an additional mark of respect the
senate then, al 6:40 p. in., adjourned.

was so sick 1 could not eat. sleep and
hardly able to walk. Felt more like dying
than living. Was under a doctor care and
taking all kinds of drugs and medicine,
douche, solutions In nnf, etc. The doctor
nearly blew mv head away with a power

It did abKolutelv nothing In my case. I
threw everything away medicine, air
pump, douches and commenced on Duffy s
Pure Malt Whiskey. I fell better from the
start. I take one ounce with water be

and now, after using four bottlen. I can eat
and drink and sleep well, anil I feel better
today than 1 have for twenty years. 1 was
opposed to all kinds of lliiuor and us'Hl
none for twenty-five years. I use Ouffy's
as a medicine only, and -Bhall continue to
use It as long as I live if I can get It. I

Wllhelmlna is watched with especial In
terest In Germany, because both the heir
apparent and the heir presumptive to the
