LAKB GEORGE. N. T July I?. At ft
meeting of representative antl-imperlellstj
held In. New York last spring ft commutes
ftftt appointed to Investigate army condi
tions In the Philippines. That committee
has since been prosecuting Its Inquiries.
President Roosevelt's recent review of the
court-martial of General Jacob H. Smith
seemed to the committee to demand some
reply and at ft meeting Just held at Lake
George an open letter to the president was
adopted. The letter waa signed by Charles
Francis .Adams, chairman ; Carl Sohurs,
Edwin Burrttt Smith, Moorfteld Storey and
Herbert Welch. It ays: , , '
We desire to express trie gratification
afforded us by your "review" of the 14th
Inst., as commander-in-chief, of the find
ings of the court-martial in the case of ,
General J. H. Smith. Taken In connection
with the previous memorandum of April
16 that review will, provided It be followed
by corresponding general action. In our
opinion, do much toward the re-establlsh-ment
of the national prestige and the
restoration ot the morale of the army.
Commends President's Reminder.
Especially opportune In oar Judgment Is
your very commendable reminder to offi
cers in high snd responsible positions that
In a warfare as that recently waged by
us In the east. It behooves alt ouch of
ficers to "be particularly careful In their
bearing and conduct as to toeep a moral
check over any acts of an Improper char
acter by their subordinates."
The level here reached Is lofty and In
healthy contrast with that spirit far too
prevalent which seeks excuse, if not Jus
tification, for the excess of the present.
In every Instance, of Inhumanity which
can possibly be exhumed either from colo
nial history or for the regrettable records
of our Indian warfare.
While thus, however, expressing out1 sense
of obligation, we wish most respectfully
to call your attention to certain conclusions
which we have in the course of our own
Inquiries found ourselves compelled to
- Says Demoralisation, la General,
Coming directly to the point and speak
ing historically, our Investigations have led
us to conclude that the demoralisation of
the officers and soldiers of our army In
the Philippines, Including all branches of
the service and all grades of rank, was
far more general as well as pronounced as
might be inferred from your review of the
court-martial findings In the case of Gen
eral Smith. The defense urged In this
case, we believe we have reason to say,
were rather notorious than exceptional.
Demoralising Influences, very prejudicial to
any high standard of military morals, were
under the circumstances Inevitable. This
led to lamentable results, calling for the
firm hand and atern correction found and
most fortunately applied In your orders of
April 15 and July 14.
Meanwhile, we would respectfully submit
that the good of the army and the future
of our eastern dependencies demand that
Investigation should not stop at this point
or with the results already reached.
Believe Other Calprlts Exist.
The Inquiries we, as a committee, have
m-de, necessarily Imperfect, have yet h-en
sutftclent to satisfy us that General Smith
and Major Waller werx nut the sole cul
prits, nor should they suffice in the cheiao
ter of scapegoats.
In your revtt-r of July 14 yo say that
these caaea were exceptional. Your means
of Information on this point should be
Infinitely better than ours. Meanwhile It
Is always to be borne In mind that one
side only of this painful Story has been
heard and that aloe in part. tne testimony
of representative Filipinos has been Jeal

finding Is certainly suggestive.
Finally, every severity known to the
state of war, practices which have excited
the special reprobation of the American
people, were reported as features of the
hostilities In Cuba under the SDanlsh
regime, or In South Africa during the Boer
war, have been of undisputed and frequent
occurrence In the Philippines. From the
early beginning of operations there It has
been the general practice it not actually

In like manner aa respects concentration

DIETRICH ON RECIPROCITY
Nebraska ' Sen-.tor Talks en Cuban Affairs
tod His Eluding with Fretioeat
EXPLAINS POSITION TAKEN IN SENATE
Believe that President Itoosevelt
Mas as Favorable to BUI Intro
placed by Illrn as Any
HASTINGS. Neb.. July 87. (Special.)
In an Interview yesterday with the editor
ot the Hastings Tribune, Senator Dietrich
explained hie position on reciprocity with
Cuba snd hie standing with President
Roosevelt. Senator Dietrich said:
The president has no more loyal sup
porter and men who were more unsellUh.
In the cause of Cuban reciprocity than the
so-called beet sugar Insurgents. The bill
which psssed the house by nearly a unani
mous vote of all members, irrespective of
party, providing for a 20 per cent reduc
tion, was killed In the senate committee by
i ho Influence of the sugar trust and other
large lund holders of sugar and tobacco
properties In Cuba. Their opposition to
the bill wss because the bill also provided
that Cuba should enact and put into force
Immigration and Chinese restriction laws,
and also a ricl of the differential upon
refined sugar. Evidence has disclosed that
the suasr trust and those Interested par.
ties absolutely own and control the com
mercial snd political affairs of Cuba, and
it would be detrimental to their Interests
to have such labor laws enacted and en
forced. The repesl of the differential would
have mad; It possible to have created coin
petition to the sugar trust, whfch now has
sn absolute monopoly ot the Importing,
refining and sel.lng ot the sugars consumed
In the United States. Should not the labor
of Cuba be protected the same as labor In
the United States, Porto Rico, Hawaii and
the Philippine Islands? The bulwark of any
nation must depend upon the great middle
classes, and the only way to change the
conditions In Cuba snd make it strong and
prosperous is to protect the labor. The
Inhabitants of Cuba today consist of princes
and paupers; there le no middle cuiss to
Cuba hss a population of 1.80O.OCO people,
consisting of princes and paupers, and the
consumption and wants of such a people
would not smount to that of 3CO.00) Ameri
cans. In other words, the amount tht
we would expect to sell to Cuba would
never be great with lte present standing of
civilization. When an American Is engaged
in producing sugar and tobacco in tne
Vnlted States all that he consumes Is taken
from the American farm or factory. A
Cuban engaged In the eame bualness would
not consume 6 per cent of goods or mer
chandise from the United States. In other
words, a man employed in the United
States producing sugar-or tobacco will
consume from 95 to 98 per cent more of
products from the. American farm and fac
tory than will a man so employed In Cuba.
From a standpoint of business reciprocity
with Cuba ts a sham, end the only excuse
for reciprocity with Cuba can only bo con
sidered from a sentimental and charitable
standpoint. That sentiment was created by
the enormous expenditures of moneys out
of the Cuban treasury, sugar trust nnd
other Cuban Interests. If It be so profitable
to produce sugar from sugar beets, as
ssserted by the friends of the sugar trust,
so that a 60 pet cent reduction could be
made without Injury, why does not Have
meyer, the president of the sugar trust,
his associates and other American capital
ists Invest their money in sugar beet lands
snd factories in the United States, In place
of Investing many millions In the sugar
lands ot cuoa. wnere tney claim It is lin-
ftosslble to produce sugar except at a great
oss? The fact that they are now Investing
In Cuba brands as a falsehood all the as
sertions and representations that have been
made to congress and the American peoole.
Nearly every .so-called insurgent was
willing to vote for the house bill as passed.
and they also expressed a desire to vote
for the bill which was introduced by my
self, which demanded Immigration law
ana tne repeal or the ainrerentinl. with a
like amount, added to the unrefined sugar
scneouie, ana a la per cent reduction given
to Cuba. This bill would have Increased
the protection of the Amerlc in producers
t per jent against Germany, France, Bel
gium and other sugar producing countries
that are paying their exporters largo export-
bount'es. It would have- added at
least tronv 86,000,000 to $10,000,000 additional
revenue to the United States, because there
would have been Imported into the Unfed
States refined sugars which are now pro
hibited, as well aa the raw sugar. It would
also put Cuba in a position to refine sugar
and sell refined augar to the American
consumers directly, In place of being
obliged to sell it raw sugar to the sugar
The. Summary of the bill which I Intro
duced would have accomplished the follow.
Ing results: It wou'.d have given Cuba a
25 pee cent reduction and an opportunity
to refine and sell Its reflqed sugar direct
to the American consumer. It would have
given the American producers of sugar nn
additional protection of 6 per cent upon
raw sugar against all nations except Cuba.
Thla would partially compensate them for
their loss of protection s gainst Cuba.
The question resolves Itself to this solu
tion: Does th republican party and tha
American people prefer to protect and per
petuate the sugar trust, or stand by the
American producer In the future as it has
done In the past?
In conclusion, I wish to state that Presi
dent Rooaevelt waa as favorable, and I be.
Ileve even more so. to the passage of the
bill which was Introduced by me than he
was for any other proposed bill. The presi
dent's record Is too well known and estab
lished in standing for the Interests ot
American producers for the consumers, ss
against importers and gigantic trusts, such
ss the sugar trust and other against
whom he has taken action.
And, I would further state, that all bills
favoring Cuban reciprocity were killed in
the committee by the friends of the sugar
trust, ana otner influences that were afraid
to have any bill reported for fear of an
attack and a general change of the tariff
schedule, and In order to blind the Ameri
can people; their power and Influence is
directed ftgalnst the eo-called beet sugar
