To enable the Filipinos to establish a
atable government and then to withdraw
from , the Islands, leaving the. natives to
manage their own affaire In their own way.
la the duty of the t'nlted 8tatel In Its
dealings with theThlllpplne problem, ac
cording to Jacob Gould Schurman, president
of Cornell university. Mr. Schurman lec
tured on the question to a large audience
at the Flrat Congregational church last
evening. He discussed the question In all Its
phases and gave hla reasons for the tem
porary retention of the archipelago by the
United States, that being to relieve the
Filipinos from Spanish oppression. He la
opposed to permanent retention,, and also
thinks that a great mistake has been made
In undertaking te-force the English lan
guage on a people whose language la Span
ish. '.
He waa Introduced by John XV. Battln,
president of the Cornell AlumrfJ associa
tion, who aald that the graduatea of Cor
nell are now found all over the United
Statea and in all parta of the world, and
that the present enrollment, nearly 3,000,.
represents forty-four states and sixteen
foreign countries. ' 'V v
President Schurman; after a brief review
of the events leading up td the cession of
the Inlands to the United States, aald that
previous to the signing" of tha treaty of
Parla he had been opposed to thla Country
retaining the Islands. Ha had urged this
aa a reason for declining Lis appolntmebt,
made by President McKlnley, when chosen
as president of the first Philippine com
mission. In reply to this President Mc
Klnley bad aald: ' "The,' American" people,
having gone to war" for the freedom of.
Cuba, will not consent, after It a Vlc.torloua
close, to leave the' Philippines, subject to
SpanlBh oppression.

The Islands of the Moroa and heathen, he
said, remained at peace while there was
fighting in the lalanda of Luzon and the'
Vlacayaa, simply because tha United States
government renewed the treaties in force
between Spain and the rulera of the south
ern lalanda, by which the people were to
be governed by their own tribal rulera and
after their own lawa and customs. If Chris

people, and the - beat of. the "beo'p1e will
compare favorably with any man In North
America or Europe, and to think of them
for a moment aa aavagea and barbarlana ia
an outrage on humanity. Now, theae mil
lions of people were governed by Spain In
a very despotic way. They enjoyed nothing
like home rule had no civil liberty. ' The
Insurrections in Luton and the Vlacayaa
were due to thla facf: The reformera
clamored tot hjm iule, jdipnlatraXive au
tonomy. These people were governed by
Spanish military officers. . Spanish civil of
ficers and Spanish frlara. and. when Spain
ceaaed to exercise authority they were aa
sheep without leadera. It waa a abeer
dem0cracy, without native leadera and with
no machInerv bv which to choose leaders.
They had no tribal government."
Of the recommendatlona of the first Phil
ippine commission, President Schurman
aald they had been practloally carried out
by congress and the present . commission,
the bill of rights, with the exception of
trial by Jury, aomethlng unknown In Spanish
countries, and the right to bear arma In
plnoa. He criticised congress for not ar
ranging more aatlsfactory trade relatloua
between the Islands and tha United States
and for not adopting the gold atandard tor
tbe lalanda, aaytng that tbe failure to pro
vide that atandard had coat the government
more than $1,000,000 during tha laat, year
and the people of tha country much more
The people of tbe lalanda may be bound te
the United Statea by aelf-lnterest, while
tbey could never be bound by tlea of blood
or tradition. He painted a picture of
desolation on the Islands, where the rinder-
peat haa killed 90 per cent of the cariboo,
where famine haa followed war, pestilence
haa walked upon the heels of famine and
tbe Asiatic cholera la now raging, and said
that It Is the duty of the United Statea to
aid the Islanders. As regarda the educa
tional efforts of the United Btatea, he aild
a blunder had been made in providing that
the English language abould be the baala
of education, and the blunder will be a
crime If tha poller be continued, for Span-
tab la the language of the country and will
continue ao for generatlona.
Referring to the ecclesiastical question
he aald: "Under Spanish rule the church
bad been part of the state. The priest and
bishops drew stlpenda from the government,
but now the Catnolle church atanda upon
tbe aame baala aa the Other churches, and
must be supported by voluntary subscrlp
tiona. So tar as the church goea, tbe
Philippines are aa Cathollo aa Mexico and
Central America. Tbe trouble la not with
the church, but with aome of the order
which own the land. Aa landowners they
come under the control of the government
A few months ago It waa eald hi large head'
Unsa that the frlara must go, but the frlara
have aome rlghta. The frlara ara the un
fcrtunate victims of the old system. Tho
military officers and the civil officers could
returnAto Spain: the friars had to remain
and when the Filipino became reatlve and
atruck at a Spanish bead the bead of a
friar waa the most convenient. My eolu
tlon to this question waa to have tbe landa
valued by arbitration and purchased by the
Philippine government, leaving the matter
of the deportation of tbe frlara to time and
changed conditions. The second commla
slon haa unfortunately coupled the purchase
of tha landa with the withdrawal of the
frlara. I am not a Roman Catholic, but I
can aee why It la absolutely Impossible for
the Vatican to agree to thla rule. The
frlara have been charged with oppreaslen
and various crimes by a part of- the Fill
plnoa. To conaent to their withdrawal aa
propoaed would be a confession of guilt on
the part of the Vatican.
i"We went to the Islands with humanl
tartan - motives. ; I 'know other Influences
were at work. Tbe capitalist thought tt
waa a land to be exploited. H Is dlsll
lusloned. Tbe Protestant elergymaa aaw
a field for' missionary work, but that II
lualon haa vanished; tbe Jingo and exan
slonlat were all at work, "but the dominant
feeling waa, that voiced by President Mo
Klnley. I waa eppoeed to taking tbe Philip
pine lalanda from Spain, and ao spoke
188. before tbe signing of the treaty
Parta.' Wkti Ue archipelago waa taken I
went to the Islands and convinced tnyrelf
thai Agulnaldo did not represent the Fili
pino people. I waa opposed to giving the
lalanda to Agulnaldo or to any other Insur
rectionary chief. I felt that we had a duty
to ourselves, to the other nations and to
the Filipinos not to turn the Islands over
to any other power than tha Philippine
people themselves."
To Deal with the Qneatlon.
But three possible methods exist for set
tling the Philippine problem, according to
Mr. Schurmitn's view. One la forcible con
trol of the Islands; the other annexation,
making the Inlands a territory and after
ward statea of the union, and the third to
assist the Flllpinca to set up a government
of their, own and to then 'withdraw the
forces of the United States from the
Islands, after bringing to thoae Islands
what the government haa brought to Cuba.
He favors the third. He aald that out of
1,000 wage-earners he addressed In New
York last week all but three approved thla
plan, and out of 1,800 eduratora he ad
dressed Thursday night at Lincoln, all but
eight signified their approval. No test was
made last night.
After the address a number of the prom
inent auditors and Cornell men met the
president at the church.
Pope Receive Long Report on Con
dition of fharrh There from
Marr. Galdl.
ROME, Jan. J. The Vatican Is In receipt
of the first long report of the situation In
tbe Philippines from Mgr. Ouidl, apostolic
delegate In the Philippines. The delegate
expresses the hope that aa he and the
governor are animated with the desire to
maintain pacification and prosperity of the
islands they will aucceed in reaching an
understanding satisfactory to Rome, Wash
ington and the Filipino people.
Mgr. Ouldl gives a summary of the evi
dence he has collected with regard to the
selling of the friar lands, the settlement
of rents, damages due to the church, the
conveyance of titles and the administration
of charitable and educational trusts. He
thinks the question of the withdrawal of
rhe friaT will be solved through the re
organization M the church.
The apostolic delegate aaya the schism
In the Roman Catholic church In the Philip
pines will be put down, although the sep
aratist "m6vement ia believed to be encou
raged by the people's dislike for the frlara
and their 'desire to have a Filipino church
not connected with the ancient regime.

In taxing farma and alK other property and
he believed the law to be unconstitutional
which attempted to discriminate, in favor
of railroad property.
John L. McCague suggested that the same
constitution which makes provision for uni
form taxation of property also provides for
legislation for cities of the first and second
and other classes, andVsald that the resolu
tion was Intended aa an appeal to the law
making body for tbe repeal of an objec
tionable feature of the charter of cttlea of
the . first class, "which charter had' been
enacted by that body.
At the close of this discussion the resolu
tion was adopted without a dissenting vote.
Health Department Short.
The appropriation for the maintenance of
the health department waa the subject of
much discussion,, but no. definite action.
Dr. Ralph, hearth' 'commissioner, when
called upon by Councilman Haacall to state
the needs. of hla department, said thpre wss,
yrgent need of additional funds, bill he
could not even, state an approximate
amount.' " ' " ' '
Mr. Hascall aald in thia connection that
the council had been obliged to rob the
general and other funds and resort to all
sorta of other expedienta to aupply the
health department with the money It really
needed for the support of the emergency
hospital and for other branches of the
work, and Councilman Lobeck aald that In
tend of $10,000 there should be at least
20,000 or $25,000 appropriated for the health
Comptroller Westberg suggested that the
true solution of thla difficulty and the
shortage In other funda would be to do
away with the system of special funds for
pcclal departments. The charter, he aald,
authorized the appropriation of $1,140,000
in all for the purpose of maintaining the
city government and In hla opinion that
should be In one fund and tbe apportion
ment of It ahould devolve upon the mayor
and council. Then there would be no necea-
ity to rob one fund for another.
This plan Andrew Roaewater opposed on
the ground that aome of the departmenta
would neceesarlly Buffer and the money
would go to the departmenta which were In
favor with the council. ' '
Nelson Asks for Action.
At thla Juncture Representative Nelson
call'd the attention of the meeting to the
fact that nothing definite waa being ac
complished by all thla discussion. The
members of the delegation, he aald, bad
come to Omaha from Lincoln it great In
convenience to bear what the citizens of
Omaha wanted In tbe way of charter re
vision and the citizens of Omaha had not
yet made up their minds aa to what they
wanted. South Omaha, he aald, had gone
to work In a systematic rranner upon Ita
charter revtalon and appointed a commit
tee aome time ago. The reault waa that
there waa now a new charter all ready to
file. He aald he believed that tbls leglsla
ture preaented tbe best opportunity Omaha
had ever had to get a good city charter, and
ho hoped aomethlng would be accomplished
toward that end, but It must be done with
out any further delay.
A motion by Mr. McCague that the mayor
be requrated to appoint a committee of
twenty-five to take, charge of the work of
charter revision waa, after-, numerous at
tempts at amendment, road e ie. read that
the mayor appoint, ten additional members
to act wttb the present committee of five

SIOUX CITY, Ia., Jan. S (Special.) The
following letter from Rev. Jamea P. Well
Iver, formerly of this city, gives the most
complete account of the causes of the re
bellion In Morocco that has been mrde pub
lic. Mr. Welllver, his wife and two chil
dren, are members of the party of mission
aries now at Fat, where tbe sultan Is be
sieged by tbe pretender. He haa been In
Morocco'tiearly 4x years and was formerly
a newspaper writer In Sioux City, before go

FB3, ree. S, iftil In view of the many
reports which have ra-en In circulation re
cently regarding political conditions In Mo
rocco, a few lines concerning matters as
they really are may noi ue unappreciated.
Up to the time of writing nothing very
serious haa occurred, and the missionaries

Saltan So, Klararehead.
- Upon the death, of Abu Hamtd, two and
a half yeara ago, the country Knew him so
well, and know the sultan ao little, that
conservative people feared the tribes might
rise up and rebel when his strong hand
relaxed its hold. I waa, myself, detained
a llttlo while by this fear, in leaving Me
qulnez for Fes and Lararhe at the time of
the laat visit of our general director to
Moroccov but the- sultau proved to be no
figurehead, and assumed the reins of gov
ernment at this Juncture Juat aa completely
as he had turned them over to the vizier
at hla accesHlon. -
Two Important facta now affect the
whole story. One, that the sultan had de
veloped the most remarkable liking for
everything foreign, and the other, that
during the winter preceding the death ot
the grand vlsier France, whose posseeslons
In Algeria lie on the eastern border of Mo
rocco, had by force of arms taken posses
slon of a district on the Morocco frontla.,
known aa Tuat, and It eeemed aa if further
invaalon of Moroccan territory was Immi
nent. The Moorish government found It
necessary to send strong warnlnga to the
tribes of the neighboring district of Tart prevent the execution of plans for
an attack on the French, as "holy war"
had been proclaimed In the public mar
keta. Had auch a thing taken place there
would probably have been a pretext for
further IngresHlons on the territory of the
nultan for the ostensible purpose of restor
ing order, and possibly a surHclent pretext
for war would have been found. At the
same time that efforts were made to check
the movements of the tribesmen of Tatllelt
a protest to France and an appeal to the
principal Curopean powers were made.
The case, however; seemed complicated,
and none of the-powers seemed inclined to
interfere with .the French In their free
hand on the frontier.

would make - It no longer to the people

tan seemed to be In a mate of mind to be
convinced that Morocco muBt either go for
ward with the nations, or be speedily
'eaten ud by them. And it soon became
evident that he oreferred the former, for
he-had surrounded rumseit --'n a corps or
foreign assistants euch . as no previous
sultan had ever had drill masters, ma
chinists, sclentlllc men, surveyors, physi
cians, etc. and It looked as If the day of
reform In Morocco had dawned. Foremost
among the Improvements in the adminls-
ration was the-institution oi systematic
property taxation, designed to relieve the
pecple . from the burden of being
"eiueeied," or made to pay taxes at the
will of the magistrate. Without doubt,
though no official announcement nas ner-

Innovations I'n welcome.
But while these Innovations were wel
comed by a large clans, their meaning waa
not understood by tne masses, and leal
ouay on the part of a certain class of
rrn run nut them In further, disfavor. In
stad of understanding that the sultan had
laken the oulv course left for the preserva
tion of the crumbling empire, tney treated
with disdain the idea that foreigners were
to be feared or to be. listened to. and all
sorts of rumors and slorleu were circulated
about the government. It was no pleasant
medicine for many proud Mohammedana
ta ewallow. when, on the sultan's arrival
at Fes last spring, a acore or more of the
ht houses and aardens had to be vacated
for the forelgnera in tne employ or tno
government. Fanaticism and Ignorance of
tne real auuauon were uiv reuvuus lur iiur
strong feeling, but the crll, If such it
be came, unexpectedly. The sultan had
planned to have a wagon road constructed
from Fes to Mequlnes, and sent out en
gineers, to locate It. in so uoing signal

ALE DO, III.. Jan. 2 The fate of Ton
Dunlap, charged with the murder of Allle
Dool, was submitted to the jury tonight.
The case, which has been on trial for sev
eral weeks, la an outgrowth of a tragedy
that haa excited the people of this com
munity since early last summer.
Allle Dool, clerk In a general store here,
died suddenly after eating chocolate can
dica that had been given her by Tona Dun
lap. It was proved that ahe died of
strychnine poisoning and charges were
made that the poison was administered by
Tona Dunlap. A coroner's Jury, however,
exonerated Miss Dunlap and thui the mat
ter was allowed to rest until late In the
fall, when a grand Jury indictment was
returned against Tona Dunlap. ,
The only motive for the crime was that
Tona Dunlap hoped to succeed Allle Dool

the poison and used it aa a corn remedy.
The prosecution proved that the chocolate
candles contained poison and that Miss

that Ton. Dunlap and another young woman

Miss Dunlap haa stoutly maintained her
innocence and her lawyers have tried to
establish a theory of accidental poisoning.
For two days rumors have been current

but nothing of an authentic nature can be
learned. The Juror In question Is said to
have told a friend he would "either hang
Tona Dunlap or hang the Jury," should he

Appearances Indicate Conference
Called for Cincinnati Mill ot
Now Be Held.
CINCINNATI, O., Jan. 2. It Is now prob
able that the peace conference between Na
tional league and American association ball
cluba will not' be held hero In January.
President Ban Johnson of the American as
sociation wired Hermann of the Cincinnati
club, who Is chairman of the NjJonal
league peace conference, that unless the
National league committee was given full
power to act all communications would be
broken off and no further action taken
toward a settlement of the base ball war.
Hermann when seen today said:
"I wired Mr. Johnson today that I had
mailed a letter to him replying to his
communication. I expect that he will make
known tho contenta of my letter to him to
morrow. I do not propose to make public
the text of any communications I address
to him previous to their receipt.
"The National league committee has full
power to act as much as any other com
mittee, but a committee' l action must al
ways be ratified by the entire body It repre
sents before LL Is legal. If in this Instance
we should do something that was not rati
fied by the National league, the league
would stand divided against us. It is now
up to Mr. Johnson, whether there will be a
peace conference or not."
As the matter now stands the American
league refuses to go Into the conference
unless Johnson feels assurred that the Na
tional league' committee has full power to
act, and If that assurance la not given the
war will continue. .

VIENNA, Jan. 2. Increased duties on

The details of the higher duties will be
determined on within a fortnight. The du
ties on both grain and manufactured arti
cles will be considerably Increased, which
Is likely to seriously affect both the United
Statea and Great Britain, who are respect
ively tbe third and eecond largest export

be the greater sufferer, since the United
States Is better able to protect Itself by
