THE HAGUE, June 2. The newa of the

received here with very mixed feelings.
While there ia general satisfaction that
the war la ended, unvarying regret la ex

Tha Boer delegatea here are In a particu
larly trying position. It baa been learned
upon good authority that the British gov
ernment at tha last moment refuaed to al
low the Boera In South Africa to com
municate with their leader la Europe,
thus the delegatea on the continent were
entirely shut out of the negotiations and
were ignorant even of the terma of sur

through the newapapera.
A Dutch official, referring to the new
from South Africa, aald:
"The delegatea made a great mistake In
not complying with tha ardent wish of the
Dutch government at the time of the over
tures made by Dr. Kuyper, the premier.
which waa that they apply for safe con

Alt of those" present were opposed to tariff
revision now or at tbe short session, the
view being expressed that revialon was not

thet any movement In the direction ot

to allow Cuba to be absolutely lode

Mr. Maaon of Illinois mads a speech early
In the aeaslon. In which he took strong
grounds against the general policy of tba
United States in the Philippines. His
speech waa listened to with interest on
both sides of the chamber. He mentioned
tbe great coat of carrying on ths war and
ot its little value to too United States.
He would not have voted tor the peace
treaty but for the open and notorloua un
dersandlng among senators that there
waa to be a vote on the resolution te give
the Filipinos self-government. This would
have prevented the war. "Why not try It?"
he asked. He declared no barm could coma
from tbe attempt.
Mr. Mason said this republic waa strong
enough to be independent of what other
natlona might say If we should compromise
with thess poor struggling people. He asked
why one plan ahould be adopted for Cuba
and another for the .Philippines. The
Philippine lesson waa not without lta good,
for when wa attempt to govern people with
out their consent the charnel bouse will
rise before the people for tbetr good.
Mr. Hoar of Maaacbusetta aald be
charged tbe outragea committed in the
Philippines upon imperialism. He apoka of
what the "miserable doctrine ot buying sov
ereignty with gold" bad coat.

by a vote of 128 to 4t suspended the rules
snd sdopted the Joint resolution extend
ing the thanks of congress to Secretary
of State John Hay for hla address on tbe
occasion of the McKlnley memorial exer
cises last February. Unanimous consent
for the consideration of this resolution
was objected to by. Mr. De Armond of Mis
souri sopie time ago, and today Mr. Clark
of Missouri made a twenty-minute speech
in opposition to it on ths ground that Mr.
Hay had abused the occasion by Inject
ing a "republican stump speech" Into tbe
General Hooker of Mississippi, a one
armed confederate veteran, delivered an
eloquent defense of Mr. Hay's address, ds
nylng that It contained anything objec
tionable from .a' political standpoint.
, M,r. Qrosvenor of Ohio, who waa In charge
of the reslutlpn, argued that Mr. Hay, tn
eulogizing the. martyred president, could
not divorce tho man from his achieve
ments and his record as a manly partisan.
Only torty-slx democrats voted against the
Speclat orders were adopted for the con
sideration ot tha anti-anarchy bill and the
bill to transfer certain forest reserves to

tbe president, it not Incompatible with pub

for that Introduced by Mr. Cochran of Mis

Mr. Clark, in his speech against adopting

said when Colonel Hay arose to deliver
his oration- on tha occasion of ths Mc
Klnley memorial exercises he hsd an
audience ouly twice equaled In the his
tory of the country. In his magnificent
audience were the president, bla cabinet,
the supreme court, the members ot the
diplomatic corps and many other men dis
tinguished in public life. In some respects
Mr. Clark aald he had a high opinion and
a high regard for the secretary of state.
He was an hiatorio personage. He had
made a name la literature, both tn prose
and poetry, that any man might eavy. It
was not against tbe man, therefore, that
bis criticism waa directed. It waa because
In the - presence of a great, brilliant and
sympathetic audience he abused the occa
sion to Inject into tits eulogy of McKlnley a
high-class stump speech.
Protest by Hooker.
Mr. Hooker then spoke as follows:
I hsd the honor to be appointed on the
joim memorial committee to nresent suit
able resolutions In honor of our . deceased
president, ftlr . McKlnley, and ta select an
appropriate sneaker to deliver the eulogy
on that occasion. I accepted the position
ana united in tne selection or tne present
secretary of state to deliver the eulogy. I
listened wun great care and attention to
the address delivered by Mr. Hay. I think
I am aa keenly alive to everything that
affects the interests and the honor and the
weirare or the democratic party aa my
friend from Missouri, but from who I en
tirely dissent on this occasion. I listened
to that address with great care, with great
caution and even with a disposition to
rrlticlse If anvthlna wroni had been said.
But I failed to detect In the whole of that'
address anything that I thought was lnv
rrooer to be said or anythlna said in a

the man selected aa orator by the Joint
committee was a republican. Did we ex

great pleasure, and I am sure that the

would not have countenanced for a moment
any exhibition of partisan spirit or partisan
