It plain that It was not a question of

taxation. And he ahowed conclusively that

Messrs. Harrison, I'ro and Mead of the

the revenue committee will hold another

Table I'erry Herniation.
The IVrry resolution, Intended to head
off the lobby, was effectually sidetracked
In the house today, when It was laid on
the table by a decided majority. Douglas
of Rock, who made the motion, stated that
the only effect of the passnge of such A
resolution would be to unfavorably adver
tise the state, whllo tho lobbyist, It dis
posed, would work on Just the same. The
lobbyist, he pointed out, did his most ef
fective work at other times and places
than In and around the legislative hall.
Terry announced after tho vote that In
case the lobby became too conspicuous be
would move to take the resolution from the
table and Insist upon a vote upon It.

The greater portion of the afternoon was
lonsumed in a wrestle between Senator
Howell of Douglas and the revenue com
mittee, in which the latter won out. How
ill was the father of a Joint resolution to
equest the supreme court to appoint a
wmhilsslon from that body to act with the

erred to the revenue committee and re
torted back that It be indefinitely postponed.
This brought forth a deluge of oratory from
iowell, who moved that the joint reaolu

if the legislature were apparently divided
nto three sections those who favored the

May lie liaised at Onee,
TARIS. Jan. 2S. It was learned today
that the Belgian charge d'affolres at Cara
cas has Informed his diplomatic and official
colleagues that Belgium will undertake the
administration of the Venezuelan customs
in behalf of the allies and other foreign
claimants, thus relieving the I'nlted States
and other interested parties from the re
sponsibility of administering the settle
ment. Belgian agents will be appointed to. re
ceive the customs and distribute the re
spective portions to the different claimants.
Frnnee i:ieeta F.qnsl Treatment.
The attitude of the . French gov
ernment rotative to the claims
against Venezuela is that the - French
claims are in the nature of first lien on
the customs receipts, and that under the
circumstances are not to be subordinated to
otber claims.
This view has been communicated to the
representative of the allies, to Mr.
Bowen and to the State department at
Washington. .For this reason, the officials
here express confidence that no arrange
ments will be made to give priority to the
claims of the allies over thosa of France
and other powers similarly situated.
It Is said that 40 per cent of the cus
toms receipts will probably be sufficient to
satisfy Francs, the allies and all the other
No rm In Washington.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2S No advices have
yet. arrived here from London, Berlin or
Rome relative to the Venezuelan negotia
tions, but the representatives of the allies
are hopeful that the final answer of the
powers, authorizing the raising of the
blockade, may reach here within the next
twenty-four hours. It will be communi
cated at once to Mr. Bowen and the
preliminary protocol will then be signed. .
Impressed with the fair spirit in which
Mr. Bowen has conducted the negotiations
for Venezuela, an appeal has come to the
minister from or.e of the largest German
the powers for the Interests of their own
Ministers I'rcre Aeeeptanee,

The claims of- powers other than those

Captain Eckermann of the German corvette
Tanther to Captain George Terrlll of tha
Red D. line steamer Julia regarding the
charge of giving Information leading to the

Saya Father Aatfnstln Deserved Death
for .eadlaat Insurrection and

Against tatted States.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. A sharp debate
was precipitated In the senate today, when.
Mr. Rawlins (Utah) called up a resolu
tion, directing the secretary of war to fur
nish the proceedings of a number of courts
martial ln the Philippines.
In the course of his remarks Mr. Raw
llnj referred to the death of Father Au
gustln, and said ha was murdered In cold
blood. This roused tl.e Ire of Mr. Bever
ldge (Ind.), who demanded to know wbo
had commit ted the cold blooded murder.
Mr. Carmsck (Tcnn.) Joined, and charac
terized the charge that the democrats were
assailing the army as the "meanest and
dirtiest" of any that had been made
against the party.
Mr. Froctor (Vt.) defended Captain Cor
nelius M. Brownell, who mentioned the
Rawlins resolution as responsible for Fa
ther Augustin's death;
The statehood bill was then taken up,
Mr. Lodge speaking in opposition. An at
tempt by Mr. Aldrlch (R. I.) to divide the
business of the sennte with the statehood
bill failed.
Trleat . Fonlly Murdered., .
Mr. Rawlins In moving his courts
martial reslutlon urged that It be
adopted) becausu neighbors and relatives of
the persons concerned had demanded the
facts.- He referred to the death of Father
Augustln, who had been murdered
in cold blood. "We have reason to Infer,"
said he, "that a foul crime has been com
mitted and that the criminal is within our
borders, and tinder the present conditions
of the law cannot be reached."
Mr. Beveridge (Ind.) said he had hoped -an
end had been reached of the policy of 'In
sulation and badger about American sol
diers. .
Replying, Mr. Rawlins said he had not
specifically charged any person with hav
ing committed cold-blooded murder, but
his statement was based on affidavits 'on
file ln the War department. "It Is thq
old charge," said he, that we have
called attention to tortures and thereby
have been arraigning tho Amoriran army.
It is. a false and infamous charge and I
will cram it down tha teeth of' the-men
who-: have falsely given it utterance-. I
brand , the statement as Infamous It not
cowardly. .It Is simply an attempt to -put
me In a false position, which I will not
occupy." . ' . '
Hever Mure Defends Army.
"If that. is' the .best explanation the
senator can give," remarked Mr. Bcverldge,
"for his remarkable language here, I think
the best friend the tenator has would have
advised him to accept the alternative of
He then entered upon a defense of the
army .and said that Mr, Rawlins had gjveu
the best argument why the resolution
should not be adopted. .
Mr. Hoar (Mass.) interrupted and .asked
, tf it was to Impute to. anybody
a desire to attack ' the American
army when the government of the United
Btates Itself , through, its. military authority
: had made auch charges,
! '' Bev""e revertedato th, use of the
words "cold-blooded murder", and said that
! .Mr., .Rawlins would not undertake the. re,'
f'J-' X.ii,'m. . !. .
-Possibility .of saying, It..,,. ...
t Mr. Carmackr characterized . the . .charge
i t. ..,. ooiiinir ih. srmv
as "the meanest and dirtiest" of all that
had been ,made. "It has been .the very
vermin," he said, "of .this debate and I
am a little surprised to find It crawling ln
the hair of the honorable, senator from
. "Jake Smith Is so . more the American
army than the senator from Indiana la the
American senate and not half as much as
he thinks he Is." '
Perjurer Goes Unpunished.
Whoever made the charge, he said, con
sciously took a falsehood upon his Hps
when be spoke It. He declared that the'
senate committee on the Philippines had
refused to Investigate tho murder of Father
Augnitln. There had, been a policy of
suppression, he aeacrted, and In the case
of onflf witness, who, he said, had testified
falsely before the committee, he had been
allowed 'fo go unpunished.
'He insisted that whatever action had
been taken by the president and War de
partment had been because they were
driven to It by the minority of the senate
and that even then no ' single fact was
brought to - light.
Replying, Mr. Deverldge said Mr. Car
mack had made his charge because the In
vestigation did not result as he had hoped
It would.
"It did not result In putting on the
American army tho ban which tho senator
bad thought would be" put ' there, but
resulted ln s complete and brilliant vindi
cation." '
Mr. Carmack again reverted to the In
vestigation by the committee on Philip
pines as to the conduct of the army ln the
Philippines and said It occupied but four
days of seven hours each, "although the
secretary of war with his usual loose and
lavish unveraclty had said It occupied five
Priest Leads Rebel.
Mr. Proctor said that Captain Cornelius
M. Brownell, who was -charged by the
Rawlins resolution as being responsible for
the death of Father .Augustln, was a Ver
mont man-and that there waa no better
specimen of the volunteer soldier In Ver
mont or any otber state. He had read a
statement by Captain Brownell detailing
the circumstances of a plot to massacre
his company and the methods 'adopted to
overcome It.
He declared tha,t Father Augustln was
the head and front of the insurrection in
bl district.
From his standing in the church Father
Augustln was ?ble, to divert Its revenues
from their legitimate purposes and use
them to further the Insurrection. He read

the priests of the Islands, calling for con
tributions to aid the Filipino caue.
Replying to Mr. Tillman, he said Captain
Brownrll had been mustered out of the
service, and the Judge advocate general
I had held that he could not now bo court-
mMr.iaTll'lman. Interrupting, said If Cap-
tan Brownell was Innocent of murder he
! ought to be able to prove Jt. but those
I who wished Fhould be allowed to produce
' evidence showing that the captain was
' not Innocent.
Continuing Mr.
rrortor said Captain
Brownell was Justified In taking the steps
he did. He had seen a man hung for a
much smaller violation of the rulea of war
than Father Augustln was guilty of.
Mr. Tillman declared that "for the
honor of the American army I would to
God Father Augustln had been shot by a
drumhead court-martial instead of being
tortured to death."
Mr. Quay (Pa.) cut the debate short by
demanding the regular order.
Discussion of the statehood 'bill, there
upon, waa resumed, and Mr. Lodge ad
dressed ill, serale tn . onosition to the
omnibus measure. He had not concluded
when, at 5:13, the senate adjourned.
Dispone nf Four I'sgri of Indian Ap
propriation Bill Tiltlne; Survey
Grant to Dakota.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2S. Tho house to
day, made slow progress with the Indian
appropriation bill, covering ouly about
eight page ln over four hours. Mr. Burton
(O.) hung on the flank of Mr. Sherman
(N. Y.), who had charge of the bill, and In
sisted upon an explanation of every. ifem.
He succeeded in having -several appropria
tions cut down.
la the course of the debate he hirnlshe l
some Interesting statistics ' on tho subject
of Indian education designed to show that
the more money the government spent the
ciore helpless the Indians became.
The. senate amendment to the bjll to
amend the bankruptcy act was agreed to.
The house then resumed conslderatiot' of
the Indian appropriation bill.
While the bill was being considered Mr.
Smith, the delegate from Arizona, took the
floor, and replied to some of the charges
made In the senate during the debate on
the statehood bill,, to. the effect that Ari
zona had repudiated Its debts.
Mr. Smith explained that he was "com
pelled to reply In the house because Ari
zona had no- representative In the annate.
He denied that Arizona had ever repudi
ated a single dollar of debt or defaulted on
a .dollar of it.
The charge, he said, was based upon the
fact that a horde' of men owning bonds
known to bo fraudulent hod come to con
grrsB, and had those bonds validated after
they had been declared Invalid by the su
preme court.
. He 'explained how one of the counties
In the territory had been induced to issue
bonds to promote a railroad enterprise.
But, he said,, no' railroad had been built
for. tho H0.0OO debt which congress had
raddled on the people.
H thought the act validating the bonds
should be repealed or the United States
should assume their payment. 'Amend-
tents were agreed to .appropriating $21,300
for a survey of the Pine Ridge reservation,
Sfluth Dakota,' striking out the approprla-i
tlon of $10,000 for a warehouse at St. Louis
and appropriating $1,000 In settlement of
