Philippines Question in
the Senate.
Remarks of the Massachusetts Sena
tor Arouse Mr. Piatt to Eloquence.
A Tribute to the ' United States
Army Joint Resolution Submit
ting; a Constitutional Amendment
Changing the Time of Presidential
Inaugurations to April House
Shows Change of Sentiment on the
Olemargarine Question.
By i:cliiiivc Who from tlio A.uil.itcd Preji.
Washington, Fob. 11. A stirring dc
lmteon (he general Philippines question
was precipitated in the senate lute to
day, the prlneipnl pariictiauts being
Mr. Piatt, of Connecticut, and Mr.
Hoar, of Massachusetts. Mr. Teller, of
Colorado, bad conclude!) for the day
Ills argument against the enactment
of the pending Philippine tariff bill.
In response to some statement he had
made. Mr. I'latt, directed the senate's
attention to tbe situation In the isl
ands, as be viewed It, saying that great
progress, was being made- by tbe gov
ernment in subduing the Insurrection.
He referred to the elections for muni
cipal olilcets in various cities of the
Islands, and to the establishment of
schools for the education of Filipino
children. Mr. Hoar ridiculed tbe state
ments of Mr. Piatt and in a facetious
vein adverted to tbe efforts of the
American government to control the
Filipino people.
The remarks of the Massachusetts
senator aroused Mr. Piatt, who de
livered a notable speech, in the course
of which he referred to Mr. Hoar in
pretty sharp terms. His speech was
listened to by senators on both sides
of the chamber with profound atten
tion. In conclusion he paid an elo
quent tribute to the efforts of the
United States to carry the principles of
free government to every territory
where it had control.
In his reply Mr. Hoar delivered an
incisive criticism of the action of the
Philippine commission, declaring that
he had been taught to judge men rath
er by their action than by their words,
and by this standard he could' not
judge tbe Philippine commissioners
with any degree of favor.
Early in the day the senate passed u
joint resolution submitting a constitu
tional amendment changing the time
of presidential inaugurations and the
termination and commencement of con
gresses from the 4th of March to the
last Thursday In April.
Mr. Carmack's Resolution.
Senator Cnrmnck today introduced
the following Joint resolution:
"That the United States regard with
extreme disfavor any movement hav
ing for Its object the early or ultimate
admission of the Philippine islands as
a state or states of tbe union; and any
action on the pari of tho persons hold
ing oflice under the authority of the
I'nlted States that gives sanction or
encouragement to such u movement Is
hereby condemned. That to confer the
lights and privileges of citizens upon
the inhabitants of the Philippine Is
lands would tend to destroy the Integ
rity of citizenship and to degrade the
character of the government of the
I'nlted States."
Tho Oleo Amendments.
The voting on amendments to tho
oleomargarine bill in the house today
indicated u considerable change of
sentiment since last congress, when thu
bill had IOC majority and that the op
position to tlie measure has gained
strength. While passage of the bill is
not endangered, It Is not likely that
the majority tomorrow, when the Html'
vote Is taken will exceed 20. The op
position toiuy was strong enough in
committee of the whole to adopt two
Important amendments, one providing
that nothing In the net should be con
strued to prevent the manufacture of
and sale of oleomargarine In any stnto
for consumption entirely within such
state, and tho other to provldo for the
Inspection and branding of renovated
or process butter. The latter amend
ment was especially obnoxious to the
friends of the measure and when the
bill was reported to the house a sep
arate voto was demanded on It. That
vote was pending wlyn tho bouse ad
journed, Although the amendment commanded
n majority of UO In committee of the
whole, where no record Is made, It Is
not unlikely Unit tlie action of the com
mittee will bo reversed tomorrow, when
members are obliged to go on record.
Several committee amendments adopt
ed today, changed tho phraseology of
the bill, tho most important being one
limiting tho 10 cents tax made to ap
ply to oleomargarine made in Imita
tion of but lei', "of any shade of yel
low," Considerable feeling was Inter
jected Into the proceeding towntd tho
close of the session.

Course of the Dean of Diplo
matic Corps Was Not
Inconsistent. '
By Kiclmbs Wire from The Associated I're..
Washington, Feb. 11, In view 'of tho
statements and contradictions, more or
less official in character, coming from
the principal European capitals re
specting tlie attitude of the powers In
dividually toward the United States
Just preceding the Spanish-American
war, the officials hete feel a. natural
reluctance to being drawn Into the con
troversy, and It is with dlfllculty that
even unofllclal statements can be btut
on this subject.
One fact remains uncontroverted,
namely, that the European ambassa
dors and ministers here called upon
President' McKlnley, April 7, 1S9S, in tho
effort to prevent war.
The matter now in controversy is
what happened after that call and the
tiuestlon nt Issue Is, ns presented in tho
latest phase In the European dis
patches, Did Lord Piuincefote under
take to secure the support of the other
European powers in an attempt at
forclbl" restraint upon the United
States'.' Sifting all the facts, the con
clusion reached hero Is that Lord
Piuinoofote's activities In the direction
of Intervention has been generally mis
understood, Jt is known that the Aus
trian minister was untiring In his er
forts In behalf of Spain. The I'nlted
States government has never cherished
tlie least ill-feeling on that score, re
alizing that the blood ties between thu
Austrian and Spanish reigning houses
sufficiently excused such an attitude.
In the course of these efforts, Mr. Hen
gelmuller turned to Lord Pauncefote,
as dean of the corps, and sought to
have him, ns such dean, see what
measure of support could be secured
for another and more forcible, repre
sentation to the United States as to
the undeslrablllty of war. Lord Paunce
fote was confident that no such propo
sition would carry, but he yielded so
far to the application of the Austrian
minister as to submit his proposition to
the other representatives of the Euro
pean powers. The result justified Lord
Pauncofote's judgment of the outcome
and It probably was the inquiries he
made in this proceeding, anil not any
proposition originating with himself,
that led to reports of ministers and
ambassadors here to the European
When I net ii ley was made at the Brit
ish embassy 'today relative to the re
cent dispatches purporting "to give tlie
action of Lord Pauncefote, just prior
to the outbreak of the Spanish war,
the ambassador sent word that there
was absolutely nothing to bo said by
hlni for publication. It is understood
that if there Is any occasion for Lord
Pauncefote taking cognizance of the
controversy he will communicate di
rectly with the London foreign office,
which will determine upon nny publlo
utterances to be made. Moteover, there
is reason to believe that the foreign
office Is already In possession of all the
papers bearing on the Interchange on
the Spanish war, and that nothing
which could now be submitted would
alter the situation as. heretofore laid
before the British authorities.

Wltllc Reports Issued Through Mr.
Cortelyou Run Between Hope and
Fear, Both the President and Mrs.
Roosevelt Eeel Encouraged by the
Improvement in Their Son's Con
dition King Edward's Sympathy.
By Inclusive Wire from The Associated Pre.
Groton, Mass., Feb. 11. The reports
from the sick room of Theodore Itoose
velt, jr., the oldest son of the presi
dent, who, since Thursday last has
been 111 With pneumonia at the tlroton
school Infirmary, tended to show an
Improvement and at S o'clock tonight
his condition' was authoritatively
Stated to be better than It was at the
sum.1 time Inst night.
The crisis of the disease Is still to
come and Is looked for within the next
twenty-four or thirty-six hours. The
president and his wife both believe
their son will meet this crisis in good
condition and, passing it successfully,
Will recover.
In fact, tlie slight favorable turn In
the disease today has greatly relieved
tbe strain on both of them and today
closed much more cheerfully than yes
terday. Still, the reports issued
through Mr. Cortelyou, secretary to the
president, ran between hope and fear.
IJeginnlng with tho morning, when
the boy, after an admittedly bard
night, was reported ns improved, al
though pleurisy in the right lung was
was mentioned, this favorable tendency
was continued through the noon state
ment. Then, at L4G in tlie afternoon It
was stated that the boy's temperature
had risen, that it would probably re
main high, and if anything Increilse a
little toward morning. This sombre
one sufpied almost to neutralize tlie
morning's encouraging news,
Tho next report, at 0.30 In tho even
ing, showed that notwithstanding the
high temperature, tbe boy had more
than hold bis own all day and that bis
condition was favorable. Hopefulness
wns increased by an additional volun
tary report on Mr. Cortelyou's part at
S o'clock, that the lad was In better
condition than at the same time last
night, although he saltl there had not
been much change during the day
meaning that the favorable condition
of the morning had been practically
Interview with Secretary Long.
All these reports were authoritative,
and In addition, tliete was a cheery In
terview with Secretary of the Navy
John Li. Long, after a hurried visit of
courtesy to his chief, In which he
frankly said that the boy was better.
To confirm this, came the president's
sudden appearance a little later in the
afternoon nt the new sporting dome, a
recreation house built by Mr. Gardner,
adjoining his Inansion. The president
was dressed In a suit of tlannels and
seemed ready for some exercise on the
new 'squash court. He did not play,
however, although he remained In the
sunny building nenrly two hours,
watching a game between Mrs. James
Lnwtence and Hev. Sherard Billings.
Another interesting event of the day
was the receipt ot n telegram from
Ambassador Pauncefote at Washing
ton, conveying- King Edward's expres
sion of sympathy for the president and
hope for the speedy recovery of his
sou. Tho remarkable weather contrib
uted not a little to the cheerfulness of
the day, this being the sixth consecu
tive day during whlcn the sun has'
shone brightly froi. morning to night,
while tho air has always been cool,
but dry and Invigorating,
The Inst sick room bulletin for the
day was given out at 11 o'clock. Mr.
Cortelyou said that at this time every
Indication was for a favorable night
for th boy, but the fever bad llue
lu.ited somewhat and It was Impossible
to tell just when the crisis would come,
although It was looked for during
Tho condition of the other two pa
tients, William Gnnimell, jr., or Provi
dence, and Howard SE. Potter, of New
York, also showed great Improvement:
In fnct, these two boys tire In much
better condition than young Hooose

West Pittslon, last Friday evening,
have been suffering to a certain degree

objections by the DemoCratle and Mu
nicipal league parties to the certificates
of nomination of City Solicitor Klnsey
as a candidate for re-election and John
M. Patterson and .Inines C. Johnson for
magistrates on the Publlo Opinion
party. The objectors argued' that the
new party was organized purely for
p611tical purposes and was composed ot
hepubllcans. This was denied by coun
sel for the new organization, who
claimed It, was an endenvor to nitrify
polities In this city. In his opinion
Judge Pennypacker reviews the testi
mony and stnted that a number of
those who signed the nomination pa
pers of the Public Opinion party bad
no Intention of leaving the Republican
party, their sole purpose being to pro
cure the election of certain candidates
In November, 1901. There was no other
formulation of principles, no adoption
of rules and regulations looking to fu
ture action. and no further attempt at
organization. At a later date candi
dates for city offices were nominated
and It was resolved that their names
should be presented as the candidates
of the Public Opinion party.
The court finds that no sequence or
connection Is traced ' between Public
Opinion party of November, 1901, and
tho movement of January, 1902, which
resulted in the convention of tlie IStti,
and that, in consequence up to that
dute no aotual organization had ex
isted. The Public Opinion party therefore is
not a party, which polled two per cent,
of tbe "entire vote cast at the election
nest preceding" within the meaning ot
the' net, of 1&S8.

A change In Rule 17, adopted last

Section 2 of Rule 32 was also cor
rected by adding tbe words "to u bats

New York, Feb. 11. The seboone?
which was burned to the water's edge
off ti point north of Cape May, last
night, wns the Mary Oraliam, from
Norfolk to New York, and the crew Is
safe, having reached here late this nl;
ternooti. ' They were picked up Ijy tlto
schooner J. C. Clifford. Captain-F. II.
Medley and five seamen composed the
crew of the flrnbtiin. She was n two
master, which left Norfolk, Vn., three,
weeks ago yesterday with. 187,000 feet of
p(ne lumber, consigned to a New YorP
firm.' From Captain Medley the follow;'
lug facts were gathered:
About 0.30 o'clock last Saturday morn
ing the schooner was caught in the IcV
which was coming out of tlie Delaware
bay, and the captain, fearful that he
would bo crushed or the schooner
blown ashore, dropped both anchors,
being at that time eight and n half
miles northwest of Cape May In nine
fathoms of water. The schooner wini
leaking and the crew was kept at thu
pumps. They suffered terribly from tho
cold, and the' bands of Mate Charles
Anderson and Sailor were
frost-bitten. Plenty of hot coffee re
duced the men's suffering considerably.
Heavy seas we;t- blowing over the
vessel and the bow sprit was carried
away. Soon after-, both masts went by
the .board. In fulling over tho side ot
the schooner the masts carried away
the only boat. This left the crew help
less, and their only hope of safety lay
In being picked up by a passing ship.
Tlie schooner was one mass of Ice from
bow' to stern by this time, iind to mid
to the peril the captain found she was
in danger or sinking, being an old ves
sel. To lighten her the captain had
about twenty thousand feet of lumber
thrown overboard.
Despite all efforts tbe schooner wan
settling rapidly when the J. C. Clifford,
also a, lumber-laden schooner, hove ii
sight. This wus about It o'clock yes
terday morning.
The Clffford lay to about one hun
dred yards from the Oraham and sent
a boat with mate and three sailors to
resUue the crew. On account of the Ice
the small boat had great dllllculty In
forcing Its way through the water, and
the mate bad about given up hope of
reaching the sinking schooner when a
sudden change In the wind made a pas- "
sageway through the Ice, through which
the hardy crew rowed to the (irnhtim.
Seeing that there was no chance of
saving the vtssi-l, Captain Medley ret
fire to It before entering the Clifford's
boat. In explaining tills action he Ptild
that the vessel was ovi-r thirty ytartt
old and her bull was In such bud con
