WASHINGTON, June 13. After talking
rlth a number of the leaders In congress
Regarding Cuban reciprocity President
(loosevelt today determined to send a mes
lage to congress reaffirming his attitude on
4e subject.
'The president has earnestly considered

The president's action. It may be stated.
!rom sources close to him, was influenced
ty the broad proposition of the duty of the
C nl ted Statea to Cuba and of fairness to
fcie new republic.
It has been pointed out to the president
that his warmest political support Is In

greatest opposition to reciprocity, the west

Sid not hesitate to arrive at the conclusion
that he would not let his political prospects
Interfere with what he regarded as his
plain duty. It la further known that he
told his frlenda that It was a source of
great regret to him to take a position hos
tile to tho wishes of his warmest support
ers, but that he felt It would not be In
keeping with his own nature and his posi

government aa to our real Intentions to
ward It.
'v It is stated that the president's positive

jluty of congress probably will end hla ac
tive efforts to bring about reciprocity.
Test of the Message.
To the Senate and House: I deem
K Important before the adjournment
sf the present session of congress to
call atlenllrn to the following expressions
m the message which In the discharge of
the duty Imposed upon me by the constitu
tion I sent to congress on the first Tuesday
it December last:
"Elsewhere 1 have discussed the question
af reciprocity. In the case of Cuba, how
twer, there are weighty reasons of morality
Sknd of national Interest why the policy
Should be held to have a peculiar applica
tion, and I most earnestly ask your atten
tion to the wisdom, Indeed, to the vital
rteed. of providing for a substantial re
duction In the tariff duties on Cuban Im
ports Into th United States. Cuba has In
(er constitution afllrmed what we desired,
that It should stand. In International mat
tiers. In closer and more friendly relations
with uo than with any other power, and
We are bound by every consideration of
aonor and expediency to pans commercial
pleasures In the Interest of her well being."
This recommendation was merely giving
practical effect to President McKlnley's
Words, when. In his messages of December
L and December 6, 10M, he wrote:
I "It Is Important that our relations with
this people (of Cuba) shall be of the most
friendly character and our commercial re
lations close and reciprocal. We
have accepted a trust, the fulfillment of
which calls for the sternest Integrity of
purpose snd the exercise of the highest
Wisdom. The new Cuba yet to rise from
the ashes of the past must needs be bound
to us by ties of singular Intimacy and
Strength, If its enduring welfare is to be
assured. The greatest blessing
Which can come to Cuba Is the restoration
Df her agricultural and industrial pros
perity." Palms Makes an Appeal.
Yesterday, June 12, I received by cable
from the American minister In Cuba a most
earnest appeal from President Pal ma for
''legislative relief before it is too late and
blM country nnanctally ruined.
The granting of reciprocity with Cuba !
a proposition which stands entirely alone.
The reasons for It far outweigh the arant-
Ing of reciprocity with any other nation and
are entirely consistent with preserving In
tact the protective system under which
this country has thriven so much. The
V resent tariff law was designed to pro-
inote the adoption of such a reciprocity
treaty ajid expressly provided for a reduc
tion not to exceed 30 per cent upon goods
coming from a particular country, leaving
the tariff rates on the same articles un-
thariKed as regardum all other countries.
Objection has been mado to the granting
Of the reduction on the ground that the
Substantial benefit would not go to the agri
cultural prodjeers of sugar, but would inure
to the American sugar refiners. In my Judg
ment provision can and should be made
which will guarantee us against this possi
bility without having recourse to a meas
ure of doubtful policy, such as a bounty In
She form of a rebate.
The nuestlon as to why. If anv. of the
different schedules of the tariff ought most
properly to be revised does not enter into
this matter In any way or shape. We ar
concerned with getting a frlxndly rlclprocal
arrangement with Cuba. Tnla arrangement
applies to all the articles that Cuba grows
or produces. It Is not In our power to de
termine what these articles shall be, and
any discussion of the tariff as It affects
rpsclal schedules or countries other than
Cuba Is wholly aside from the subject mit
tor to which X call your attention.

teresta hem. In the actual event their

and their apprehensions as to the damage
to any Industry of our own because of the
proposed measure of reciprocity with Cuba
eems to me equally baseless.
In my Judgment no American Industry

Consternation on Island Vnabated,
While Scientists Proceed with
KINGSTON, Island of St. Vincent,
Wednesday, June 11. Fleet Surgeon Isaac
H. Anderson of the British navy and the
scientific commission appointed by the
Royal society to investigate the volcanic
disturbances here, arrived at Kingston yes
terday and left today for Chateau Bela, in
tending to ascend the Soufrlere volcano
when possible.
The general feeling of anxiety has not
abated. There has been no big eruptions
elnce May 30, but the appearance of the
volcano Is not reassuring. There are fre
quent emissions of black steam.
The American scientists. Prof. Edmund
O. Hovey, assistant curator of the Amer
ican Museum of Natural History, N ,
and George C. Curtis of Harvard '
made another ascent of the Soul
the east Monday last.
They heard the rumbling of boiling
the crater, waited until the fog cleared, and
found the southeast crater quiescent. The
old ridge that used to run from the saddle
to the bottom of the crater remains.
There Is no water in this crater. The
Americans did not venture to approach the
old crater.
Prof. Hovey eaya that, apparently, the
crater of the 1812 eruption took no part
In the recent outbreak, and so far as he and
Mr. Curtis could tee, no streams of molten
rock, like those which issue from Mount
Vesuvius, have flowed, only superheated
steam, old lava, ashes, etc., having been
thrown out.
Many persons have returned to Chateau
Belalr and Georgetown for business, but
they are very much troubled by the uncer
tain appearance of the affected quarter. A
lake has formed at the base of the moun
tain. Its banks are volcanic matter which
fell during the eruptions. Thick clouds of
steam arise from this lake at close Inter
vals. The fissures in other parte of Wal
ltbu are still smoking. The relief work
are progressing.
The government Is now sheltering and
feeding 7,000 persons. The United States
collier Leonldas has arrived with lumber
for relief purposes.
A large number of natives are now em
ployed and trade Is brightening generally.
The depressed planters welcome the rlBe
of the prices of arrowroot In the British
market. In spite of the showery weather
the heat is oppressive.

the veteran dramatist, on tha Gross-Rostand
dispute regarding the originality of "Cyrano
de Bergerac." The paper says:
M. Sardou laughed heartily at the Chicago
Judgment and said:
It la an amusing story. I myself have
been robbed and pillaged In America and
England. With calm, auperb cynicism one
of my pieces was translated word for word
and produced as a new national work. An
other piece was thrice translated In similar
at vie. I once wrote to an American author
who naturally la mixed up in the Gross-
Rostand affair.
Mr. D la a thief and Mr. did not
turn a hair. It la only fair to say, however,
that tbeee literary burglaries have ceased
of recent yeara and that the rights of prop
erty are now respected.
'The claims of Gross In the present case
have not a leg to stand on. The method
adopted In the judgment In Chicago of
enumerating resemblances without alluding
to dissimilarities Is a most useless and
misleading game. The idea of Rostand
finding 'Cyrano' already prepared, perhapa
In canned form, on the shore of Lake Mich
igan la very funny."
M. Sardou then referred to the old vaude
ville, "Monsieur Roquelleure, which con
tains striking resemblance to Gross' work,
and, naturally, to M. Rostand's, but says M.
Sardou: "As Rostand followed Gross, the
latter ia a plagiarist."

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, June 13. (Special Tele
gram.) The expected happened today when
the house passed the irrigation bill by a
comfortable majority. This result, which
Is so gratifying to the advocatea of the
reclamation of the arid land regions of
" i west. Is the culmination of one of the
. remarkable contests In the present
ff.Sf ' congress. President Roosevelt's
l:,t '' 'on for legislation looking to
tu ' of the arid land regions
gave .'''" ' .t'an impetus early in the
session, .'was generally predicted at
the time thai, the bill drafted by the friends
of Irrigation would be one of the first
placed upon the statute books. The bill
passed the senate without a roll call, and
then It was that the leadera of the house
decided to consign it to the graveyard of
legislative hopes. For a time the prospect
looked dark, but a careful campaign was
made and the result of it waa the passage
of the bill today In the face of determined
opposition cn the part of potential leadera
of the house.
Darken Makes Forcefnl Speech.
One of the features of today'a debate was
the forceful speech In behalf of the bill
by Congressman Burkett of Nebraska. Mr.
Burkett addressed himself principally to
the contention that the reclamation of the
arid reglona would be seriously detrimental
to the farmers of the east. He asserted
that the Increased cost of production in
reclaimed regions would obviate the pos
sibility of competition with the oldor sec
tions of the country.
"In supporting this bill," said Mr. Bur
kett, "I do It- in behalf of thousands of
homeless children In the United States, in
behalf of the toiling masses, who go home
at evening to a fireside, that is not their
own. I speak in behalf of the wage-earner
that his opportunities may be multiplied
as new territory Is opened up and new
Industries established. I speak for the
manufacturer, ever alert for markets. I
speak for the farmer and the farmer's son,
who, pinched and crowded In the old home
stead, are asking for an opportunity to
help build up another state aa they have
their own. I apeak for the miner, who lives
in the mountains in his arduous and peril
ous undertaking to replenish the treasury
of the world, that he may be aurrounded
by civilization and assured of the necessi
ties of life."
Mr. Burkett's argument to the effect that
irrigation would not afford Increased com
petition for farmers of the east and middle
west made a strong Impression. He said
on this point: "Staple products In Penn
sylvania and Ohio that are produced at a
profit would be ralBed at a loss on irri
gated land. If Irrigated lands are made
profitable something especially adapted to
those conditions must be raised. Every
ear of corn and every spear of oala that
will ever be planted on lands thus re
claimed will be consumed In that region.
Aye, more than that, they will be con
sumed on the very ground where they are
raised. Nothing of the cereals will be
shipped out; on the other hand, much will
be shipped In. This means more people
in thn Irrigated realona and a larger mar
ket not only for farmera' products, but
for everything that Is produced by the
brain and muscle of man."
Making Wind Cave a Park.
Although there Is no more prospect for
legislation on the subject at this session,

Cholera Epidemic Causes Alarm In
Philippines and Small
pox Exists.
WASHINGTON. June 13. A rather alarm
ing situation with regard to the epidemic
of cholera in the Philippines Is set out In
a report received by Surgeon General For
wood from Lieutenant Colonel ilelzeman,
at present in charge of the medical de
partment of the army In the Islands.
The appearance of the disease fn Manila
in March is attributed in some quarters to
vegetables coming in from lnlected Chi
nese ports, and others to the drinking of
Puslg river wstcr, foul with the sewerage
of the city. Lieutenant Colonel Helzemau
eaya that the number of different points
attacked by tho epidemic and the conse
quent Infection of many streams which are
universally used for drinking and bathing,
and into which all foul material and gar
bage find their way, makes probable a
large number of deaths before the rains,
which ended the two great epidemics In the
'80s. The army, he says, is much better
protected than the native population, or
than civilian Americans in the islands, be
cause of the care which Is exercised in
supplying good food and water.
In Manila alone a total of 277 cases, with
215 deaths, had occurred up to April 15,
the date of the report, with 453 cases and
308 deaths outside of the city. In the
provinces the disease attacked twenty-two
different places. In the Carmarlnes, at
Neuve Cacares, the disease appeared and
this has been the only point where the
army has suffered, two cavalrymen and an
Infantryman having the disease. The col
ored troops, the report says, naturally mix
much more with the natives than the
whites, drinking the water In the shacks
which they visit and eating native food,
and they are thua much more liable to
contract cholera.
Smallpox also has appeared and has been
more prevalent. It Is stated, thla year than
any except the first of American occupa
tion. Manila has been quarantined against
all other points, distilled water has been
provided, house-to-house Inspections made,
chloride of lime freely used, a cholera
hospital established, the foul farola burned,
and twenty-eight army medical officers
have been detailed to duty with the Manila
Board of Health.
Medical officers of the army have been
given practical charge of health matters In
or near towns where troops are stationed.
The report on the health of the army In
general shows a alight decrease la the per
centage of sick. Out of a total of thirty
six recent deaths, dysentery has been the
cause of eighteen.
No Artificially Colored Ingredients
Are to Be Used In
WASHINGTON. June 13. Commissioner
Yerkes of the Internal revenue bu
reau haa settled the contested question
aa to whether butter, or any other In
gredients artificially colored, may be used
in the manufacture of oleomargarine with
out increasing tha tax from one-quarter
of 1 rent to 10 cents a pound, by Issuing a
regulation which holds In effect- that no
artificial coloring matter whatever caa be
used In any way la the manufacture of oleo
margarine without increasing the tax as
The resolution Is as follows:
If In the production of oleomargarine the
mixtures and compounds set out In the law
of 18X6 are used and tnese compounds are
all free from artificial coloration and no
artificial coloration is produced by the
addition of coloring matter as an Inde
pendent and separate ingredient, a tax of
one-fourth of 1 cent per pound only
will be collected, though the finished
product may look like butter of some
shade of yellow. For example, if butter
that has been artificially colored is used
as a component part of the finished prod
uct oleomargarine (and that finished prod
uct looks like butter of any shade of yel
low) as the oleomargarine Is not free from
artificial coloration the tax of 10 cents per
fiound will be assessed and collected. But
f the butler Is absolutely free from arti
ficial coloration or cottonseed oil or any
other mixtures or compounds legally used
In the manufacture of the finished product
oleomargarine has naturally a shade of
yellow in no way procured by artificial
coloration and through the use of one or
more of these unartlnclally colored legal
component parts of oleomargarine the
finished product should look like butter or
any shade of yellow, this product will be
subject to a tax of only one-fourth of 1
cent per pound, as It Is absolutely free
from artificial coloration that has caused
it to look like butter of any shade of

Interest In the primaries in the city of

Robert J. Clancy, secretary to the gov
ernor, thought It was necessary to make
himself a delegate to the atate conven

of the ward in a caucus had de .ided not
to have his name on the list. Mr. Cluury
came up from Lincoln and made uo a dele
gation ticket last week, but which waa de
feated In caucus by a decisive vote. Not
to be subdued by any such thing as that,
the Clancy delegation bobbed up at the
primary election yetterday with a sample
ballot headed "For Governor, James H.
Van Dusen." The rallying cry of "Van
Dusen for governor," however, failed to
pull the ticket through. It having received
only ninety votes to 150 cast for the reg

cast at the primaries and the direct issue

CRAWFORD. Neb.. June 13.-(Speclal
Telegram.) The contest for the congrea
slonal nomination came to a sensational
ending at 4 o'clock this afternoon with tha
nomination of Moses P. Kinkaid on the
177th ballot. At the close of the balloting
last night the vote was almost the same
as at the opening of the contest and dur
ing the night no combinations were made.
The forenoon was featureless and the roll
call of the thirty-four counties proceeded
without Interruption. At noos' tbe Currle
forces made a last effort to secure help
from Kinkaid without success. It became
evident that neither Currle, Cady nor Bee-
man could be nominated, and there waa
some talk of a new man, Norrla Brown
being most frequently mentioned. During
the recess the Buffalo and Dawson delegates
expressed a wish to go to Kinkaid and end
the Btruggle, but finally an arrangement
was entered into whereby the forces of
Grimes, Beeman, Cady and Darr were to
combine, trying each candidate five ballots
in the order named. Grimes reached M
votes on the 135th ballot, Beeman 81H on
the 158th, Cady 87V4 on the 165th and Darr
80i on the 167th. Kinkaid and Currle In
the meantime reclaimed practically all of
their usual strength.
Settles the Fight.
It was evident that nothing could be
gained by this combinaion and, pending an
arrangement with the Currle forces to Join
the combination and nominate .Grimes, a
forty-minute recess was taken. During the
recess Buffalo and Dawson held a caucua
and agreed to go to Kinkaid. Thla settled
the fight. The last ballot before recess waa:
Kinkaid, 79H; Grimes, 48H; Beeman, 19;
Currle, 42; Cady, 9; Aaron Wall, 9. The
first ballot after recess was: Kinkaid,
124; Grimes. 304; Currle, 43; Cady, 9.
Before the result was announced Currle
and Grimes both popoaed the nomination
of Kinkaid by acclamation. The nomina
tion waa greeted with much enthusiasm
and Kinkaid, Beeman, Currle, Crimea, Cady
and Darr made speeches, which were loudly
