fly i:iltishe Wile from the AssOiiUcd l'rca.
Washington, Feb. 11. The monotony
of a private pension day or the house
was enlivened todny by a very sensa
tional speech from Jlr. Wheeler (Ken
tucky), In denunciation of what he de
nominated "flunkeylsm" to foreign
countries. Up took the recent state
ments emanating from continental cabi
net regarding the attitude of firent
lirituln during the Spanish war. as a
text for a wholesale attack upon the
trend of our recent diplomacy, lie se
verely fccored Secretary Hay, and de
clared that if Lord Pnuneefote had
Fought, as was alleged, to circumvent
us dtirlnc the war of 1STIS, the Mioner
he will be shipped across Ilia seas the
better. He also criticized the president
for ills reported intention to send his
daughter to the coronation of King 13d
waid, and protested against the otllcial
leocptlon of Prince Henry. His speech
aioused the house to a high pjteh of ex
citement and elicited from Air. Koutello
(III.) a spirited defense ol' Hecietary
Hay, whom ho eulogized In high terms.
Several other members on the Republi
can side took a hand, and later In the
afternoon Mr. firosenor (Ohio) took
Sir. Wheeler to task for his "Inoppor
tune, protest," and rehearsed the his
tory of the visit of the I'i'ineo of Wales
to this country in UGO and his recep
llon by I'icsldent IJucluiuiiu. During
the day, VS private pension bills were
passed In thirty-seven minutes.
Mr. Wheeler excoriated what he
termed the modern disposition toward
"European (luukeyism." X'ntll 1806, lie
said, all Americans had gloried in the
splendid Isolation of the republic and
its determination to hold aloof from
foreign entangling alliances. Less than
five years ago, he declared, a president,
"egged on by the pitiable flunkey In the
state dep.iitment," had stretched his
arms across the seas In adulation to
the people of Great Britain, and today
the government was hugging to Its
bosom a nation that since the bnttle of
Yorktowu had systematically and per
sistently plotted our downfall. He
sneered at the "shoulder-strapped, gold
l.u'o flunkeys" who were to be dis
patched across the Atlantic to bend the
knee to and kiss the hand of the Eng
lish king, whoso government, he de
clared, had attempted to form a co
alition of European governments to
thwart us while we were seeking to
strike tln shackles from Cuba. Hon
est, straightforward American diplo
macy, he declared, had given way to
European diplomacy. He said ho' re
spected the nrpfent occupant of the
white house. He was, he said, too
straightforward for many of Ms party
colleagues, slightly quixotic, perhaps,
and hasty tempered, hut honest and
brave enough, ho thought, to "boot out
that man In the state department who
had brought us to this humiliating
Respects to Pauncefote.
Turning to England's war In South
Africa, he denounced her tyranny and
tho part we had In It In allowing war
material to be shipped from our shores.
It half that was said of "this man
Pauncefote" was true, no declared, he
ought to be .-.hipped across the water
and "the sooner the better." Uefenlng
to tho report that a. member of the
president's family was to attend tho
coronation, Mr. Wheeler said It was
perhaps unbecoming to allude to It.
Nevertheless, he said, he considered it
"most unfortunate? and unprecedented
and to he lamented by every liberty
loving American," It was but one
mora link In tho chain. Mr. Wheeler
then turned to the prospective visit nf
Prince Henry. With a gesture of con
tempt, ho declared that tho "European
maniacs weie 'falling over each other'
to see tho illtlo Dutchman.' "
There were u thousand Americans
following the plow he sand, "who wero
as honest and us noble as ho," why, he
asked, "should the American people
give heed to this flunkeylsm of the
present administration. Wo should
treat our visitors politely, but why fall
down and worship them?"
The whole house was aroused by Mr.
Wheeler's philippic. Several times tho
Democratlo side Jiurst Into applause.
As he was concluding, Mr, Grosvenor,
of Ohio, asked If Mr. Wheeler had been
living at tho time of the visit of Lafay
etto as the representative of the king
of Prance, whether ho would have op
posed tho reception Recorded the
frenchman by Washington.
"I should havo been proud to re
ceive) the Marquise do Lafayette," re
plied Mr. AVheeler. "Ho helped to light
for our liberties. (Democratic ap
plause). Mr. Glllet, of Massachusetts, called
attention .0 the fact that President
IN THE H
Iluchanan, 11 Democrat, had received
the Prince or Wales.
"That was a different thing," lelurt
od Mr. Wheeler, amid tiepubllciin jeers.
"He came In an otllelal capacity as the
heir to the Ihitlsh throne."
Condemned Buchanan, Also.
This statement Mr. Giosvenor denied,
declaring that the prince came Iiicoh
nlto auil was received and entertained
at tho White house by a Democratic;
president. "If the gentleman Is cor

Mr. 13outelle (111.) vigorously defended
the head of the state department. Xo
man In recent years had relkcted such
credit upon our diplomatic affairs as
he. He referred especially to the Chi
nese crisis and said his acts through
out that' time had won the commenda
tion of the world. Mr. Poutello said he
could not sit silent while such an at
tack was made upon a man who had
shed lustre upon our diplomacy.
Tho excitement then subsided, and

Later in the day Mr. Grosvenor re
plied at .sonic length to the speech made
by Mr. Wheeler, severely criticizing the
Kentucky member for what he termed
the hitter's "Inopportune speech." He
said this speech would be read at Kiel
tomorrow morning, on the eve of Prince
Henry's departure, as tho message of
the American people.
Mr. AVheeler, at the conclusion of Jlr.
Grosvenor's remarks, made an impas

otllcial reception of Prince Henry.

NEW POLICY POR
No Removals in the Fourth Class
Except for Cause.
By Exclusive Wire from Tho Associated Pros'.
Washington, Fob. 14. An official
statement of the new policy that here
after will govern appointments of
fourth-class poslmasto. s was made to
day by Postmaster General Payne, who
"The policy of the administration is
not to make removal of fourth class
postmasters without cause. The re
moval of an ofllcer Is a proposition en
tirely different from tho nnming of a
successor at the expiration of a post
master's commission. It is therefore
decided that removals be not made ex
cept for some good reason which af
fects the service, or at the reipiest of a
senator or representative; endorsing the
petition for such a change made by tho
patrons of the ofllco In question. In
some sections of the country, notably
in the South, not represented by Ite
publlcan representatives in congress,
these demands for changes in fourth
class postofliccs are made not for the
good of the service or for any jitoper
purpose, but to subserve the Interests
ot rival factions. The administration
does not believe thut the olllcers of the
government should be used to subserve
the Interests of any petty faction In
states where there is haidly a sem
blance of organization In the party. To
prevent this abuse. It Is necessary to
discourage these arbitrary removals.
No order on this subject, .however, has

SCHLEY CASE IN CABINET.
One of the Principal Subjects for
Ily i:iluslc Wire from the A.-iiocialcd Tush.
Washington, Feb. 14. One of the
principal subjects, discussed at the cab
inet meeting today was the reply which
the president will make to the appeal
of Adinlr.il Schley. The president has
given a good deal of attention to the
matter and It Is understood that in the
course of a few days, probably by the
middle of next week, he will be ready
to announce his conclusions.
Members 'of the cabinet are extreme
ly reticent as to what the president's
ylews are beyond the Btatemenl that
his decision undoubtedly will clear the
atmosphere somewhat upon many o
the Involved questions. The cabinet
also talked over the coining of Prince
Henry and Secietnry Hay referred In
cidentally to the Japanese-English al
liance. The president outlined his views on
the Schley case by reading the (list
draft of his decision, Some modltlca
tlons were made In It today and In
view of the fact that it is subject to
further and possibly Important changes
in text, members of the cabinet back
their indisposition to discuss It by tho
nsertlon that it Is unsafe at this time
tn pi edict what its exact effect will be.
It Is a long document and one of Its
features is tho clear and concise pres
entation of the facts regarding the
Santiago fight as given tho president
by the captains engaged In that bat
tle, who recently were summoned to
the white house to confer with him.
The decision is couched In the piesl
dent's char.tctaristic vigorous tone.
