Thinks That the President Should

House Amendments to the Oleo
By Inclusive Wire from The A""ocIated Prcrft.
Washington, April 28. Representative
Sibley (Pennsylvania) created some
thing of a sensation In the house today,
during the general debate on the agri
cultural appropriation bill, by severely
denouncing General Jacob H. Smith, for
the orders he issued In the Samur cam
paign. He declared that General Smith
was a disgrace to the uniform he wore,
and 'expressed the hope that the presi
dent would strip him of his uniform
within forty-eight houts. Mr. Sibley's
speech was enthusiastically applauded
by the Democrats and was received
with some evidences of approval on the
Republican side. The speech was con
sidered the more remarkable In that it
came from a Republican who left the
Democratic party on the Issues raised
by the Spanish war and who since has
been an ardent expansionist.
Mr. Sibley's Speech.
Mr. Sibley said, in part:

Supreme Court Intimates That the
National League May Retain a
Flayers' Services for All Time.
By EcluIe Wire from Tho Associated Pres.
Philadelphia, April 28. The prelim
inary Injunction granted last week, re
straining Napoleon Lajoie, second
baseman of the Philadelphia American
League Base Ball club from playing
with any other than the Philadelphia.
National club, wa3 today made per
manent by tho court of common pleas.
Permanent Injunctions were also Is
sued against Pitchers Frnser and
Bernhard, formerly of the Philadelphia
National League club, who ure at
present playing with the local Ameri
can League team.
In the original suit against the three
rjlayers, the court of common pleas de
cided that the contiacts were unjust
and declined to issue a restraining or
der. Tho officials of the National
League club appealed to the Supreme
court, which revetted the decision of
thu lower court. A temporary Injunc
tion was granted last Thursday and
today's proceeding were the result of
an effort to dissolve the injunction.
The court decided In the matter of
Lajoie that there were no new points
to be argued and that, as the Supreme
court had expressly declared Lajole's
contract to be valid, a permanent In
junction must bo Issued. Counsel for
the American League club argued that
the constitution of the National League
was In violation of the Sherman antl
tiust law, as It retained a player's
services for all time, but the court did
not agieo with that view.
President Ban Johnson, of the Ameri
can League, and other witnesses, were
called to prove that neither Bernhard
nor Frascr were players of exceptional
ability, but the court decided that tho
deelrlon of the Supreme court applied
to them, and accordingly Issued the
permanent restraining order.
Although today's decision of the
court practically makes the Injunction
against the playeis permanent, technic
ally the lestrainlug order will not be
made permanent until the National
league amends the bill of complaint to
cover the season of 1902. The original
bill on which thp decision was lenered
covered only last year. Piesldent Ban
Johnson, befoie leaving for the West
tonight, issued a call for a special meet
ing of the Ameiican league to be held
In Cleveland on Wednesday. A full at
tendance Is expected, and the whole
situation will be gone over and a line of
campaign mapped out. Mr. Johnson
would not divulge his plans.
The owners of the Philadelphia Amer
ican League club. President Johnson
and the three American League at
torenys held a conference this after
noon. Then they separated Benjamin
F, Shibe, the president of the' local
American League club.
"The decision of the judges was a
great surprise to us. We shall carry
the case to the supieme court and feel
the lower court will be reversed. Our
attorneys will at once take the neces
sary steps for an appeal.
Manager Mack bald that while the
loss of Lajoie, Bernhatd and Frazer
would be a big handicap, he believed
lhat he could get along without them
until the supreme court decides on the
John T. Itogers, of the National league
"Under the ruling of the supreme
court no other action was possible, I
shall at once prepare cases against
Monte Cross, Flick and Duggleby, who
ure now playing with the local Ameri
can League team, and shall apply for
injunctions against them. In view of
today's decision, I am morp than satis
tied that tho Injunction will bo grant
ed." Manager Mack and Pitchers Bern
hard and Ftazer left tonight for Wash
ington, where l he team Is playing. La
joie remained here. He declares that
he will never return to the local Nation
al League club.

Merchants and Manufactur
ers at Chicago Protest
By Kxclrslte Wire from The Aeociatcd Press.
Chicago. April 28. Merchants and
manufacturers of Chicago have united
in a strong protest to the interstate
commerce commission against alleged
discrimination in tinns-continental
1 rates. It Is charged that by the rates
made, Chicago manufacturers are
placed In competition with New York
for Pacific coast trade and for trade
west of the Rockies. Attention Is called
to the fact that etiual rates from New
York and Chicago to Pacific coast
points practically eliminate the advant
age which should be Chicago's, owing
to her situation territorially. To this
charge, the answer of the railroad man
agements has always been that water
competition by the way of the gulf has
made It imperative that the same rates
be made from New York to thq Pacific
coast as from Chicago, St. Louis and
other Mississippi river valley points.
Were the rates made higher from New
York by the all-rail route, the lower
rates existing by water from New York
to the gulf and thence by rail would
take all the trafllu that way.
The result Is that jobbers in the
middle west have been unable to com
pete with New York jobbeis by reason
of the local freight rates charged from
New York to Chicago.

The Legislature Carelessly Passes a
Rill to Incorporate Seattle Instead
of Honolulu Frivolities of the
Sessions Grave Discussions on
Dog Tax Good Prospects in the
By llxcluii(- Wire from TIis Associated Press.
Boston, April 28. Governor Sanford
15. Pole, of Hawaii, Is spending a few
days nt the home 'of his nephew, the
Rev. Charles F. Pole, In Jamaica
Plain. In an Interview, the governor
said his conference with President
Roosevelt was entirely satisfactory.
Regarding tho situation In Hawaii,
Governor Dole said that before annex
ation suffrage was based on property
qualification, and there was no trouble,
Now there Is almost unlimited suf
lrage, and the weakness of the system
was shown In the frivolities of the
last session of the legislature.
"Some matters brought before the
legislature were curious." said Gover
tioi Polo. "One bill, which occupied
many dt. in discussion, was to abol
ish the tax on female dogs In the
islands. Another was to abolish the
quarantine regulations of the United
States, so far as they applied to the
territory of Hawaii a measure impos
sible to put Into operation. Another
was to establish local self-government
for the leper settlement at Molokul.
"There was a long and elaborate act
passed designed to Incorporate the city
ot Honolulu into a municipality. Who
ever framed tho bill had taken as a
model the act passed by the state of
Washington to incorporate the muni
cipality of Seattle. He was not care
ful, however, to edit the bill before
presenting it to the legislature for pas
sage, and did not substitute the name
'Honolulu' for 'Seattle.' So the bill as
passed really Incorporated the municl
'pnlliy of Seattle. BeSide'that gross
blunder, there wore many other feat
ures of the bill which made It Impossi
ble of operation If adopted.
Bill's Fatal Defects.
"The bill was passed at almost the
last hour of the session. It reached me
in Ihe evening. The measure was very
long, and I did not have time even to
lead it. I saw, however, fatal defects,
and declined to sign It. That was one
ot the things alleged against me by tho
home-iule members that I was op
posed to local interests.
"The home rule party Is now In a
majority In the lower house of the
legislature, but in the upper house It
has no control. At the by-election re
cently, to fill a vacancy, the adminis
tration supporter was elected, and that
may be an indication of the way things
will go at the regular elections In No
vember. "The future Is problematical, but I
am Inclined to think It will work Itself
out satisfactory. Many young men
arc growing up to the voting age with
American ideas and love for American
Institutions. Then, too, wo are having
many accessions to the population
trom the United States. The newcom
ers, as a rule, tire good citizens and
may be depended upon to uphold good
povernment. With so many forces
working for betteiment of conditions,
the turbulent clement must be quelled.

Interesting Events in Meeting
of the Amalgamated
By Kxcliulxe Wire frpm Tho Associated Presa.
Wheeling, W. Va., April 28. Today
was a busy day for the Amalgamated
Association. Two Interesting events oc
curred. One was the partial ratifica
tion of the wage scale committee's re
port and the other was the return of
Thomas H. Flynn, the American Feder
ation of Labor organizer, to renew his
request to be allowed the privilege of
replying to President Shaffer's attack
on the organization of which Samuel
Gompers is the head.
The convention assembled at 9 o'clock
In the morning and at once took up the
report of the wage committee. Good
progress was made throughout the
morning and before the hour came for
noon recess, over half the scale had
been disposed of. Its consideration was
resumed after dinner and by 4 o'clock
the entire report was disposed of. The
report of the committee on president's
and other officers' reports was then
taken uprsndthe convention was still
on It when ft adjourned fdr the day.
The official report given out by the
press committee was that tho entire
scale as reported by the wage commit
tee had been ratified, with a few "slight
alterations." What- the "slight altera
tions" were, the press committee re
fused to divulge. They did say, "how
ever, that on the whole the considera
tion of the report was harmonious and
that It was the first time In the hlstoiy
of the convention that It was disposed
of In one day. This, they said, showed
that It was entirely acceptable to the
great majority of the delegates. The
ratification of the scale Is another vic
tory for President Shaffer and his pol
icy. Tt was he who originated tho Idea
of signing the scales In advance and
had the policy sanctioned by the execu
tive board. When objections were raised
against the plans followed, he bore the
brunt of the blame. Consequently the
sanction given the wage commltteejs
report ' means that President Shaffer
continues to hold the confidence of the
association. It cannot be ascertained
whether there was an serious objec
tions raised, or whether tho debate on
the various propositions reached the
acrimonious stage. The prdss commit
tee denies that a minority report wns
filed. It Ib true, however, that one was
contemplated and If It wns not pre
sented It is because the anti-Shaffer
people decided to drop tho scheme at
the last moment.
Tho new scales as ratified are prac
tically the same as those effective last
year. They will be In force until July
1, 1903. No conference with the manu
facturers will be necessary after tho
convention. The senles with tho Inde
pendent mills will be signed by thp dis
trict vice-presidents. The convention's
progress today Indicates that It will
clean up its business by Wednesduy.
The other committee reports will bo re
ceived Tuesduy. After them comes tho
election of officers and finally tho se
lection of the next convention city. The
most Important matters to be consid
ered now are tho proposition to strike
out In the constitution the prohlbltoty
clause regarding discussions of political
and economic questions, the Increasing
of assessments and the change of head
quarters. Organizer Flynn's return today lias
stirred up much JU-feellng among thn
dominant Shaffer element nnd It seems
assured he will not bo given the privi
lege of the flour to defend his chief.
Gompers. who was wired for, has not
yet responded, and Flynn now depre
cates his coming, though he Is the man
who on Saturday sent tho message ad
vising the federation president to come,
Flynn's friends threaten to hire a the-
litre and give their alleged "inside his
tory" of the aompers-Shaffer contro

HOW THE PIGHT
LOOKS AT PRBSEN7
Of the 118 State Delegates Thus Par
Elected 62 Are Already Com
mitted to John P. Elkin.
Special to the Scranlon Trlbnre.
Harrlsburg, April 28. To a friend
who saw him shortly after he had de
clared .against Elkln's nomination,
Senator Quay Is reported "to have said
that Elkln would not come within 100
votes of a majority In the convention.
An analysis of the figures and probabil
ities at this time does not sustain the
Of the 358 delegates 118 have been
elected. Of this number 62 are already
committed to Elkln. There are still 33
counties with 240 delegates to hold
primaries. Of these 240 Philadelphia
will choose 8G, and Allegheny 36. The
men who are doing the figuring In the
Elkln camp claim lhat of the 118 coun
try delegates yet to be elected the
Indiana candidate will secure a min
imum of 80, which with the 62 already
committed to him would make 142, or
only 38 less than a majority. The prob
lem before the Elkln people, therefore.on
this basis of figuring, is to secure 38
votes out of the 122 in Philadelphia and
Allegheny, or elsewhere.
More than 30 of these, It Is asserted,
are already In sight In the two cities,
leaving not more than 8 to be secured
from all other sources while a disorgan
ized field Is trying to unify on some one
of a dozen or more "favorite son" can
didates. But not all of the 49 delegates
thus far elected without instructions
can be relied upon to accept Quayjs dic
tation. For obvious reasons the sup
porters of Elkln say it would
be Impolitic, to reveal where surprises
among these unlnstructed delegates
may develop; but they claim there is
abundant reason for Elkln's hopeful
ness in what Is known to be transpiring
in this quarter alone, to say nothing
of Interesting possibilities elsewhere.
