THE 'INTEB OOEJLNV miDVX JIORNTN'G, JFUBIlUAIlir 2, 1000. LA FOLLETTE AT WORK One of His lieutenants Visits Stephenson at Marinette. FIGHT' 'IN WISCONSIN Developments in Plot to Overthrow Republican Leaders Editor Xarpkr of the Sea'tlnel Talks ta "Uaete Ike Marderer Daaa ' - Special Dispatch to The Inter Ocean. -MILWAUKEE. Wis.. Feb. L Protest sa may some of ths friend of Isaac Stephenson, lumberman, politician, and former candidate for United States Senator against Joseph V. Quartos, they are unable to convince every on that he la not lending hie Influence, and- perhaps something else, to the La Follette erowd. which hopes to displace the Republican machine with ft machine made up of Populists and worse. There will be more cause for suspicion that "Uncle Ikd" Is helping the enemy when, it Is known that he has been for two days entertaining st his home In Marinette the chief striker of the La Fotlette forces In this part ot the state. This would not signify so much were It not for the fact that a.Stephenbon influence succeeded In having the presence of this La Follette henchman- kept out ot the Marinette newapapers. Mr. Stephenson's visitor was none other than Jerre C. Murphy, ex-assistant railroad commissioner and "compiler of the state census," but who has for some time occupied the position of political editorial writer on tbe Mil- Develop mote ia a. Few Days. When Murphy was editor of a Democratic paper tome years ago a: Marinette ne aevotea "a great deal of space to "Uncle Ike," but the big lumberman did not indorse what Murphy tad to say about him at that time-. II Is Rarefy-possible, however, that Mr. Stephen-m haa fore-otterr. these thruasi at least, he has probably forgives ? Murphy; .' - - Anyway, every one in-Wisconsin who-is Interested will probably know within ft few days whether the LaFollette crowd has enlisted the Marinette man or not. Then they will know more about Murphy's trip than they "do. sow. AH that la known at present is that Murphy and "Uncle Ika" had a coo pie of long sessions; that Murphy Is a LaFolIetto lieutenant; that he Is one of the editors of the Sentinel, which Is opposed to the" "powers" .In the Republican party to the state, snd that altogether "It looks very much as though the Marinette man was listening to the scng of the kickers. The suggestion was made In the lobby of the Hotel Pflster today that perhaps Senator Stebbins was In the fight to gather up a few Totes In the convention to be turned over at the proper time to LaFollette, but the peo-- pie -who entertain this idea do not know tha man. ""If he la a candidate".' said one of his tld acquaintances." "he is for Stebbins and none else. He is not the kind ot a man tnal ; goes into a campaign to pull out the chestnuts for some one else." Another suggestion was . that Stebbins was in the race, to head off , Soofield. who la suspected by some people to have his eye on the Governor's office for another teim, and these people profess to think .- that Mr. Stephenson bad something to do with the announcement of Stebbins' candidacy. "lacle Ik" as aa Asfl." Mr. Stephenson Is a man of vast wealth. ' being worth several millions, and when he has-been Interested Jn a campaign, he has spent money freely, but legitimately. La Fol- ; lette has nothing beyond bis law practice, and all of his lieutenants are poor men. With "lTnela lira" n. the "unrfl" In thin affair the 4 La Kollerteff es would be apt to make somebody move" livelier than he has been moving recently. It is believed that Stephenson is the only hope of the La Fotlette men. and that without him the band of kickers will be - tA fa rrr mit fh nla n. herein? nr dp- . tailed. It takes money, e.s Mr. La Follette has learned the past few years, to carry on a campaign, especially when the campaign is against men of means, who have behind them the bone and sinew of the state. . If Jere Murphy was sent to Marinette by La Follette, to approach Mr. Stephenson on the question of furnishing the sinews of war for the Baumgaertner campaign in Milwaukee which campaign Is. of course, a part ot me scheme to capture the state for the Populisms he made a good choice, for Murphy is a good talker when it comes to the presentation of IIICD B i'' UJfVDIllUH. u. -- - than 2t years of age. He Is 70, has had ex- nHinres with politicians of all kinds, and It . has been pretty expensive, his campaign for theSenatorship costing rim a pretty penny. Republican State Committee Call. Chairman J. B. Treat of the Republican atate central committee tonight issued a call to the committee to meet in this city March 44 to name a date for the convention to elect ,, delegates to the Republican national conven- tlon. It is probable March 21 will be decided upon. The central committee also will decide ... whether the new state central committee will be elected at the delegate convention. It is customary to elect the central committee at - a state Gubernatorial convention, but In this Instance It will probably .be elected by the Presidential delegate convention.

( DEALS KEPT SECRET .Refers to the Faulty Recollection . . of the Official. , - Kckrsikas toArnlta Jasjrala the Treai wry Chief at Today's. geaslaa mt . Ike Cpver Bssit. Special Dispatch to The Inter Ocean. AVA8HINOTON. D.' C. Feb. 1. Senator Allen ot Nebraska consumed the morning hour in the Senate In analyzing the replies of Secretary Gage t the Senate and House Inquiries regarding his transactions with the National City bank of New Tork. He sought to show that Mr. Gage had not been as frank with Congress as he had pretended to be, for be had evidently not made public all the correspondence between the department and the bank. Mr. Allen quoted from certain letters of Mr. Oage and President Stlllmaa of the bank to show reference to other letters not made public, and to telephonic communications and conference of which the Secretary now claims to have no recollection. The Nebraska Senator will continue his arraignment of Gage tomorrow. Senators Al-dricb, Allison, and Spooner today followed Mr. Allen's speech closely, aa they recognise that some kind of reply must be mads by the Republicans. Other Republican Senators paid little attention to the speech, as they are not interested, except as Mr. Gage's position makes the administration responsible for his action while he remains in the Cabinet. Illlaola Me sobers slleat. The Illinois Senators gave little heed to Allen's remarks, though other Senators suggested that they ought to be more concerned than any on the Republican side, because the Secretary Is an Illinois man. But Senator Cullom is reported to have remarked that It would be humiliating enough to hare t reply to a speech of Senator Allen, or to defend Secretary Gage aa a Republican official, bar to be compelled to de both at one effort was more than should be expected of an Illinois Republican. The Senator gave his attention to other matters during the speech, and waa most of the time in conference with Representative Rodeaberg of East St. Louis about matters relating to the coming campaign in Illinois.-- The senior Senator has enough of Illinois politics to worry him without taking up the cudgels for Secretary Gageto add to his home embarrassments. Senator Mason listened for a while to Allen, and said he might feel called upon to defend Oage Just to show how loyal he could be in such an emergency, and also to demonstrate hU readiness to defend those who are unpopular, whether they live In 1111-inols or u the Philippines. Flaastelal Bill Dlaeatied. Tbo financial bill was taken up, and Mr. Daniel (Dem.. Va.) addressed the Senate. He said that the American people had always favored bimetallism, and that the Democratic party had been Its moet pronounced and consistent advocate. Mr. Daniel then went on to criticise the various provisions ot the bill. He denied that this was, as claimed tn the bill, a gold-standard country, and be mentioned six facts to prove that denial. No respectable lawyer or Judge would advise his client or the country that this country was "now on a single gold standard. If he did so he would do it tn the teeth of all the official agencies of the government, of a statute of the United States, and of tbe habitual practice of the government and the people. - ' "This country', he said, -eaa go on theJ goid- standard if tt wants to. but It la net necessary to sneak into tt by false pretenses. - That act.' he said, refuted the- preteaeiona of the pending bill that the eoaatry la now on a gold etaadard. It recognised that the gold unit had been displaced. "And mark Its phraseology," he exclaimed, "it does not promise to bring about, bo to continue the use of both gold and silver as a standard money. 'Continue.' that Is the word." Looking behind law te equity, Mr. Dan lei said that the equities were "all la favor of silver, and that creditors should be satisfied and glad to have their debts paid ia silver. tti Pavrty Plaltenas. Quoting from the Republican, Democratic, and Populist platforms of 1892. ia which tbe three parties were distinctly placed on the double standard,' he said: "I object to this blU. in that it declares ia its first section that which is not true, either as a nuute- of fact or as a matter of law. . If we want to go on the golj standard we have tie power to do it, but let us not go to the gold standard In a false disguise." He objected to the bill, also, because It perpetuated, enlarged, and threatened the "endless chain." Another objection which he had to the bill was its exclusion of silver; and who, he asked, could foretell the possible calamity which that might bring upon the world and upon tbe human race? There was nearly aa much silver money' in the world as gold. This bill thrust a blow at it that would be felt in all the civilised world. It would knock the bottom out of that immense mass of silver-. He would be a wise man who could foretell what would happen, but certainly the tendency would not be sitch as to Insure the financial condition or continue the prosperity of the world. There was no bimetallism In the MIL It merely presented the dwarf, bump-backed, lame, halt, and blind spectre of bimetallism. Bimetallism was the recognition of equal rights in the two metals, equal legal tender capacity, and equal coinage rights. Those features in silver had been already mutilated and marred, and now, under this bill, they were to be erased. After some question by Mr.' Aid rich, who also answered some of Mr. Daniel's objections, the Senate adjourned until tomorrow. The Hoaae ' Proceedings. , The latitude allowed In the committee ot the whole of the House on the state of the Cnlon, in debate on a general appropriation bill, permitted Mr. Sibley of Pennsylvania, to give additional evidence today of the fact that he Is .drifting away from his Democratic associates by making an eloquent plea for territorial expansion. This, he declared, had been the policy of the Democratic party from the organization of tbe government to the close ot the administration of James Buchanan, whom he characterized aa the last Democratic President, and he Invited ills colleagues to return to It. He waa warmly congratulated by the Republicans. - In the further course of the debate,. Mr. Shafrothvot Colorado expressed a desire for the United .States to intervene between the British and the Boers in South -Africa; Mr. Ridgely of Kansas advocated a change In the laws, regulating the lease of Indian lands; Messrs.. Talbert of South Carolina, Kluta of North Carolina, and Griggs of Georgia, replied to Mr. LJnney's speech on lynching of yesterday; Mr. Cochran of Missouri. replying to Sibley, marshaled the objections to the annexation or control of the Philippines, and Mr. Gaines of Georgia argued that the constitution, under the decisions of the Supreme court, applied to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. . - Mr. Sibley's Remarks. - " In the course' of his remarks Mr. Sibley said it had been charged that that' United States forces were' unjustifiably . shooting rdown the Filipinos. . Whenever, he asked. was liberty achieved- without tbe use of the sword and the hayonet? ' The United States was under obligation to maintain peace and order In those Islands, and since tbe ratification, of the treaty of Parts that obligation was sacred In the eye of the world. Without the shedding ' of, blood there waa no remission of sin. - -"- - " ' .... Mf. Cochran I of Missouri V In terjected. "What sins have the Filipinos been guilty of that we should shoot them down"." , ''Shall we bald the Philippines and Puerto Rico?" Mr. Sibley continued. " "Every foot-'No nation has a better title to any foot, ia its" territory than has the United States to these. Its title Is by conquest and purchase. And we shall .hold Cuba, too. until clviyty aod-safety of life aad-property are secured.

WASHINGTON. D. C, Feb. I The prospect is not bright for the ship subsidy bill becoming a law during this session of Congress. The hearings have beea finished la both ' House and Senate committees. - The subcommittee In the Senate la expected to report 'to the full committee at the next meeting, but executive sessions have not yet begun In the House committee. Such amendments as have been adopted by the subcommittee of the Senate have been in the direction of conciliating the Pacific slope, where there Is more or leas opposition to the bill aa introduced. For instance, it is proposed to raise tbe classification all along the liae. providing that a vessel. In order to come under the first classification, . shall have a tonnage of 2.000 Instead of 1,600, asd so on up to 10.000 tons. Instead of 8.000. It is proposed by tbe subcommittee to begin the payment of extra bounties with vessels having a speed of eleven knots, tnstead of k'ourteen, the extra bounty for eleven-knot vessels being 4-l0ths of a cent, for twelve-knot vessels 6-10ths of a cent, and for thirteen-knot vessels 8-10th ri a cent. ' " Provide Extra Beasty. "The bill, as Introduced, provides for an extra bounty of 1 cent a ton for vessels of fourteen knots, and thus by, degrees up to vessels of twenty-one knots or more, which are te receive an extra bountr or w-w cents a ton. in addition to the regular bounty of 1 cent per ton. for each 100 nautical miles, not exceeding 1.500. sailed outward, aad 1"4 cents per ton for each 100 nautical miles, not exceeding ' 1.500. sailed homeward, and 1 eent per ton for each additional 100 miles sailed. The object of these amendments, which it la believed, will be accepted by the full committee. Is largely te encourage "the ahipptng which enters the Tactile porta of the United States. Under the bill as K staada new those who are interested In the Pacific trade say that not a single new line will be created, and that little advantage, if any. will cobs to the Pacific slope; that two-thirds of the bounties to be paid will go to the International Steamship company, with its swift vessels, while the slow-going ships required for the long voyage across the Pacific, with the higher rates of tonnage, will receive no encouragement worth speaking of. Views af the" lesatsra. . It is doubtful whether the concessions made will meet tbe objections of the Senators and Representatives from the Pactflo slope, who regard the bill as having beea drawn, primarily. In the Interest of the Atlantic seaboard. A few other amendments In matters of detail will also be recommended by the subcommittee, but it does not appear that any of them will materially modify the effect of the bill. The proposition, for Instance, that the bounty- shall not be paid on the tonnage of vessels, but on freight tonnage. Is combated by former Senator Edmunds with the argument that it would be contrary te the agreement of existing treaties; and the Senate committee is net yet ready to assume the risk. - President J. J. H1U ot the Great Northern railroad haa been urging tbe Senators from the states of the northern tier and the Paclfie slope to - hold, out against the bill, la Its present form, on tbe ground that. It. does not - aiTord sufficient encouragement to the Paclfie trade. He ' haa prepared a long argument la support of his contention, which is now In the hands of all Western Senators and .Representatives, and which carries a great deal of weight. Mr. Hill contends that subsidies, if granted at all. should be to encourage pioneer lines to open up trade with the Orient and South America; and that this caa only be done by giving help to tbe ships that will be put Into service to carry freight without so much regard ta speed- WssM Batsarsce Krw.Llsra Those Senators who have been looking at the question suggested by Mr. Hill are inclined ta argue with him and insist that the bill, if It is to- become a law, shall be so framed as to encourage new rtnea to new fields for American commerce, rather than to encourage competition with old European lines on tbe Atlantic. " They say that, while Germany la granting large subsidies, she Is giving these to ships in the trade with China and Africa and South America, and not to ships on the North Atlantic competing with English and French lines for our fast freight and passenger traffic between Europe and America. Ten Western Senators and Representatives are willing to help pass a subsidy bill if it Is to encourage building a merchant marine on the Pacific to China and Japan and to South America, where, the trade opportunities of this country await development. But they are not willing to vote for this new departure simply to encourage the steamship companies that are competing ior the coming trade on the Atlantic between this country and Europe. There are Other Senators and Representatives in the Interior who doubt the wisdom of legislation in favor of subsidies at a time when the country la to be thrown Into another national campaign, and organised labor la opposed to It.

L Mayor Mount won another victory la hi fight with Jollet saloon-keepers by . a decision handed down from the Appellate court today at Ottawa. The decision affirms the ruling of Judge Dlbell of this circuit court. Soon after the mayor waa inaugurated, the saloons were closed oa Sundays and after II o'clock at night by order of the mayor. The strict enforcement of the law made the salooa men angry and they carried the fight Into the council, where they had the sympathy of a majority of the aldermen. but not the necessary two-thirds to pasa tbe measure over the mayor's veto. They adopted a new plan a reduction ef the license from $1,003 a year to $iO0 by resolution. The mayor refused to entertain tbe motion, whereupon ai was taken from his ruling and the resolution waa passed reducing the license to $500. Aa a creed case waa taken late court and Judge Dibell sustained the contention of the maytr that tbe license could not be reduceu except by ordinance. The saloon-keepers appealed to the Appellate court, which now t as tains Judge Dibell ia his ruling.

Brigadier General Harrison Gray Otis of Los Angeles is at the Palmer house, oa hla way to Washington to attend the foaeral of Major General Lawtoo, whose body ia now on Its way to the national capital. General Otis said last night that he agreed exactly with Senators Hawley aad Sewell. who in the Senate oa Wednesday denounced Sena Ur PetUgrew of South Dakota aa a traitor an aceouot ot. his utterances oa the. Philip, pine question. I believe that the utterances of aien like Senator Pettier, w la the Senate have had as much to do with prolonging the war in the Philippines as any one thing. said General Otla. "and I agree heartily in the statements of Senators Hawley' and Sewell in charging Senator Pettlgrew with responsibility In the death of Geaeral Lawtoa. Had it not beea for the encouragement which men like Senator PetUgrew have given the Filipinos the war would have beea ended long before this. The Filipino afablal. who has been captured in the Philippines, was the brains- of the insurrection, but he believes more in a -destructive government than a coastraetiva govern meat. However, I think the war is practically ended." - - General Otis said that the state of California is now principally interested in the special session of the Legislature that haa been called for tha eleetioa of a I'nited States Senator, and that the leading candidates for that office now are; Daniel Burns, Iviag M.
