' Washington, Feb. 10. Throughout
nearly the entire Hussion of the senate
today the Philippine tariff bill was un
Sir. Turner (Washington) concluded
his speech begun last Friday on the
legal and constitutional phases of the
Philippine (iiestlon. Ho held, in the
main, that as the Filipinos had estab
lished an Independent government In
the Inlands prior to the fall of Manila.
the United States under the principles
of International law hail no right in
the islands. He pointed out Hint on
Jan. 21. 1M!. the Filipinos established a
ippublk: and thai under that govern
ment peace and order were maintained.
Further along Mr. Turner exclaimed
with great vehemcilce:
"The leaders of the Republican party
have dishonored tile nation by their
greed for power and spoils. They have
done so under the fnlS'i und blasphem
ous pretence that they were, serving
Almighty God by advancing liberty and
religion. Instead of advancing the
cmse of liberty they have struck It
the worst blow It has received since it
first found a' foothold on the American
He maintained that the Republican
leaders had deceived and deluded the
people, but he did not believe they could
continue to do bo.
"There will come an awakening," he
said, "and the day of awakening is not
fur distant. If I did not believe so. I
should despair of my country."
Mr. Turner then discussed In detail
the attitude of the United States lo
vard the Philippine Islands under the
irlnclplcs of international law. lie
naintained under those principles the
United States government had no right
In the islands and had no right to pre
vent the Filipinos from setting up a
free and Independent government.
lie called upon his Republican friends
io think what a tangled skein they
have woven In the orient. "I conjure
you," he urged, "to unravel that skein,
while there is yet time. 1 conjure you
to do It not alone in the name of tho
hopeless Filipinos who trusted you, and
whose lands you have drenched with
blood, but I conjure- you In the name of
R0.000.000 American people and their
posterity to stay your hand lest their
precious liberties be destroyed along
with that of the unfortunate people
devolved by you to coiuiuest and sub
jugation and spoliation."
The Commission Denounced.
Ho denounced the Philippine com
mission as puppets of the executive and
declared their so-called laws are not
enacted in the Interest of the people
of the Islands. "The commission," said
he, "does only what they are told to do
by the president and secretary of war."
Mr. Turner referred to the Philippine
sedition net as not only unconstitutional
but as u "relic of barbarism, too black
for even the most despotic and tyran
nical government that now exists on the
face of tho cut Hi."
When .Mr. Turner concluded, Mr.
Patterson, (Colorado), liicsonted an
amendment providing for the repeal of
the sedition laws applied to the Philip
pines. Mr. Teller gave notice of un amend
ment declaring that It Is not intended
by tho government of the United Slntes
to permanently annex tho Philippine
Islands as an Integral part of the
United States, but that It Is Intended
to establish, with tho consent ami as
sistance of the Inhabitants thereof, a
government or governments suitable
to their wants and condition.
Addressing the senate, Mr, Teller said
ho was not going to be disturbed by
the unparliamentary and Indecent
charge mado against those who did
not agree with the administration pol
icy that they are unpatriotic and have
not the republic's weKaru at heart,
"ilecause I stand hero with words of
sympathy for the Filipinos," snld he,
"I um not guilty of treason, as has
been charged against u senator in this
.Mr, Teller said that In 18S the crea
tion was lalbed as to whether the eon
stltutlon of the United States by Its
own force went Into operation In the
Philippine Islands. He expressed the
opinion Hint it did not and It could not
until congress jmt It there by tt posi
tive declaration of law. He maintained,
however, that the constitution ought to
be extended over the Philippines so that
the Inhabitants of the Islands should
have till the protection afforded by that
great document. Referring to the re
cent decisions of the supreme court ho
said he found dltllculty In ascertaining
what the court meant.
Mr. Spooner Interrupted Mr, Teller
to luquiio, whether he legtirdeU the ac
quisition of Porto Rico as a violation of
the Teller amendment regarding Cuba.
Mr Teller said he had not complained
of the acquisition of Porto Rico, be
cause the people of that Island hud de
pi red It.
"And I do not meun to say," ho oon
tl.nued, "that If tho people oj Cuba
want to have that Island annexed and
If we want It wo cannot annex It under
that agieeinont. I do say, however,
that we cannot annex Cuba unless the
Cubans agree to It with unanimity."
Mr Teller then yielded the Hoof for
the day and the senate went Into execu
tive session and soon after adjourned.

By Eieluihe Wire from The Associated Press.
Philadelphia, Feb. 10. The creed
committee of the Presbyterian church,
now sitting in this city, disposed of
considerable work today, it coming to
a definite decision on several vital
points In the confession of faith. The
work as done Is best summed up in tho
ofllclal statement given out by Dr. Wil
liam H. .Roberts, of this city, the
stated clerk of the general assembly
and the secretary of the committee.
It Is as follows:
The work of Ihc committee so fir an icnipletcd

It also adds lo the ctinfiri'don two chapters, mic
on the Holy Spirit, and the other on llu inupel.
In explanation of the second para
graph of the abovu statement regard
ing Dr. Roberts' reiteration that the
American Presbyterian church does not
teach that any dying In Infancy aio
lost, be said he had made the llrst
stutement to that elfect last week, and
that since then he has received many
communications from clergymen, re
ligious newspaper editors, and others as
to whether he had been correctly quot
ed. He said that he had solicited the
Individual opinion of each member of
the committee and that they all were
of tho opinion as be stated It.
Tho committee' steadfastly refuses to
give out the text of anything tt has
finally passed upon. It made exception
of that pertaining to chapter XVI, sec

Is as follows:

Enough Money Offered to Rebuild
By fuluslvc Wire fiom the Associated Press.
New York, Feb. 10. The losses by
the P.iterson fire, according to careful
inquiry among insurance experts who
have gone over the whole Held, will
reach J3.000.000, of which ,000,000 is
covered by insurance. This agrees with
the estimate of city officials of Pater
son. Notwithstanding the fact that the
losses are figured at a less amount than
the early estimates, which were any
where from $10,000,000 to $12,000,000, In
surance men say the actual area, swept
by the fire is larger than previously de
scribed, covering twenty-five blocks.
Over -30 buildings were destroyed.
Jlayor John Illnchllfte, of Patcrson,
this afternoon sent tho following tele
gram to Mayor Low, in rejily to tho
telegram of sympathy:
"In answer to your telegram, we are
managing to take enro of all the suf
ferers within our city. I thank you
heartily for your kindly expressions of
Paterson, Feb. 10. The tire which it Is
estimated today, caused nt least $3,000,
000 damage here, made no headwuy dur
ing the night. Fanned by the strong
wind, however, it burned up fitfully In
places during the early morning hours.
"Wherever it showed threatening
strength slrenms were turned on It nnd
It wastbea ten down. Tho firemen to
day were completely exhausted after
more than thirty hours' continuous ser
vice, but they remained at their posts
and will go on until nothing further
remains to be done. Comparatively lit
tle suffering was reported on the part
of those rendered homeless by tho fire.
The armory, churches and public shel
ters opened their doors to few appli
cants for shelter during the night.
Practically every home to escape the
llames has been thrown open, and near
ly every refugee found shelter at the
house of a friend.
Under Martial Law.
The city today is to all intents and
purposes under martial law. Colonel
Campbell's militiamen are in charge of
the burned districts, and any one who
attempts to pass tho lines without
proper credentials faces the point of a
bayonet. Much valuable property is
still exposed In the ruins. The city's
chief hotels and clubs are In ashes, as
well as several banks and other big
business houses. The trolley company
is running cars on only some or Its
lines. The main route, however, is
cut In two. Repnlr gangs are out tear
ing up tho roadbed to repair tracks
and stringing new wires.
Despite the calamity that has befal
len the city, every one seems cheerful.
The city Is full of sightseers who line
tho streets on the edge of the burned
district. There Is no lawlessness or dis
order. Business, however, Is practical
ly at a standstill. Tho banks and fin
ancial Institutions have, for the most
part, secured temporary quarters. All
are doing business, some In stores, lofts
or In tho olllce of banks which did not
suffer from the blaze.
Mayor Illnchllffe Is optimistic. He
sees In the offers of holp that have
come from every side a faith In the city
of Paterson. lie said at noon: "We
have hnd only ten application's for re
lief, i Paterson has risen superior to
this calamity. Our citizens have re
sponded nobly to the tiro dictates of
generosity. Not only have our citizens
put their hands In their pockets und of
fered aid, but outside counties have
volunteered to semi whatever la need
ed. I say this with pride in our people.
Fortunately tho binned district was
what might be called the best district
of the city; that Is, It was the district
that could stand such n loss the best.
Ono thing that pleases mo is to learn
that Paterson still has a good name
nnd that its citizens are proud of it,
I have had offers of money that would,
If accepted, ulniost rebuild tho burned
section. Our loss will be far below
what was at first estimated,"
A well-informed insurance man said
today that It would bo safe to say that
the real estnto lost in tho tiro was in
sured to about two. thirds of its value,
or perhaps a little more. It Is under
stood that the Insurance on public
property will not figure higher than il3
per cent., or perhaps 40 per cent. Local
bankers take a thoroughly hopeful
view of tho situation, not only as to
thu financial Institutions of Paterson,
but for tho future of the city. "Tho
banks," u prominent bank ofllclal snld
today, "did not lose a dollar In cash by
the fire and they nre Just as linn Jinan
dally today as they over were,"
"If," sad another banker, "the banks
of this city wuro in need or ten mill
ions of dollars, I have no doubt that,
It would be forthcoming, and that
quickly," As for the city BenernlD'4
Mayor Ulnchllffo said:
"it will not be necessary for us to
appeal for Ihmnclat aid outside of Pat
erson. Only ten applicants went to tho
armory building last night for assist
ance, nnd every ono of these cases have
been well cared for."
Mayor llliichlllte said tonight that he
thought tho loss would reach at least
eight million dollars.

Detroit, Feb. 10. The City Savings
bank did not open for business this
morning. At 9 o'clock tho following
notice was posted on the door:
"This bank Is in the hands of George
L. Malt-, banking coiuiplssioner."
Asked tho reason for the suspension
of the City Savings bank, tlu- commis
sioner said :
"Frank C. Andrews, vice-president of
the bank and commissioner of police, in
tin; reason. The bank had total do- '
posits of something more than $3,000
000, and Andrews had more than a
third of that money out on certified
checks and overdrafts'. There are $!H4-
000 out in certified checks and $31t,lKH
In overdrafts. Henry II. Andrewst,
cashier of the bank, advanced thli
money to Frank C. Andrews without
the knowledge of the directors. The
latter are entirely blameless In this
matter. When I learned of the bank"!
condition I closed it.
"I do not know," he said in unswer
to another question, "whether any
steps will be taken by the directors
toward legal proceedings against tho
Messrs. Andrews. I will issue a state
ment tills afternoon on the bank's con
dition." The commissioner added that it did
not look as though F. C. Andrews had
much to cover tlie amount ho had
dntwn from tlie bank.
Frank C. Andrews this afternoon
signed over to the City Savings bank
nil of his real estate holdings, and at
10.30 o'clock was in conference with tho
directors of the Detroit Trust company.
Later, while walking up and down the
hallway outside the tiust company's
office, he said:
"Young men can point to me as nn

City Savings bank. George II, Uussell,
chairnutn of alio clearing house com
mittee and president of the State Sav
ing bank, said:
"The general banking situation hero
has never been better. There will be
no further failures."
Small depositors lu some of the banks
withdrew their accounts, but there was
nothing like a run ou any Institution.
Cashier II. It. Andrews, who Is ubt
a relative to F. C. Andrews, Is in a
seilous condition of cullapse at his
home. Mrs. Andrews said this niter-
''Hi- ctime home Friday night from

the past three mouths my husband
has not had one hour of natural sleep,
