NEW YORK. Railway Men at Washington Say They Are as Sacred as Those of Laborers. EIYIDEttDS TO THE STOCKHOLDERS As Much the Duty of tho Managers a* Vfngti* to the Employes—Kemarks Made During the Hearing oil Safety Appliance* Beforo the Interstate Commission—Peru, the First Siouth American Country to Apply for Reciprocity. Washington, Dec. 2. —The hearing given by the interstate commerce commission to the representatives of the railroads which have petitioned for an extension of time in which to comply with the car coupler law passed in 1S93 was resumed yesterday. William Brown, general solicitor of the Chicago and Alton railroad, replied at some length to the protest made by Gompers Wednesday against any extension to roads which had made no effort to comply with the law. He spoke, he said, for the stockholders of the railroads, who were as much entitled to receive their dividends as the laborers working- for the companies were to their wages. On behalf of the 300 employes of his road Brown also presented to the commission a petition for a reasonable extension. It was a practical a: d physical impossibility, he said, to c. -nply with the law. To grant a reasonable extension would bring every road—especially trunk lines —into active sympathy with the law; to refuse would be to punish those who had complied. Representatives of other delinquent roads rendered their excuses Lo the commission, and in each instance estimated the time resquired for the full equipment of their individual lines. All united, however, in the request of Cowen for a general five-year extension. Draft of an Onlcr of Kxtonsiori. Lack of funds, reduced earnings, want of shop facilities, and the difficulty of determining the safest and most economical appliance werethemainreasons advanced for delinquencies. Ex-Representative Pay^on, of Illinois, representing the Southern Pacific road, in the course of his remarks suggested that the commission make the following ruugrh draft of an order nf extension: "The period within which ever common carrier owning 1 cars used in interstate traffic shall comply with the provisions of the act of congress entitled [etc.,] is hvreby extended to Jan. 1, 1903; but provided that any such common carrier in default as to equipment with couplers or with train brakes as required in said act, in whole or in part. Jan. 1, 1903. shall during each calendar year thereafter make good at least 20 per cent, of such default in equipment, or in default of such partial performance the provisions of such act shall be applicable to all cars of such common carrier not properly equipped under said act. All new cars shall be properly equipped before use." Sees the Hnml-writinc on the VTall. President Smith, of the Louisville and Nashville, in the course of his explanation of the delinquency of his road, expressed the opinion that the time was coming when the people of this country would demand the confiscation and government ownership of railroads. In connection with his argument President Smith presented a petition in favor of an extension signed by 2.341 employes of the Louisville and Nashville. He also presented voluminous petitions signed in all parts of the south. While President Thomas, of the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis road, was addressing the commission Chairman Morrison asked what the road would do in the matter in compliance with the law if their earnings did not increase. Xo Question About HU Faith. Thomas created much merriment by replying that his confidence in coming prosperity has been so great that he had broken the record of a life time and had voted for McKinley: "When a southern man does that," he said, "his faith is absolute." Among others who addressed the commission yesterday afternoon was L. S, Coffin, formerly of the Iowa state railroad commission, who contended that the commissioners' duty was to execute the law: that the effect of a refusal to extend its provisions on the commerce was not to be considered. Figures furnished by Secretary Mese- ly, of the commission, show the total number of cars owned by the roads •which have'filed petitions for an extension to be 1,069,704, of which those own- in" 2SS.2SO cars had between 75 per cent, and 100 per cent, of their rolling: stock equipped: those owing 230,271 cars between 25 and HO per c<?nt. equipped, and those owning 136.S41 cars below £3 per cent. FERU 1VOITLD HAVK RECIPROCITY. First of the Snntli American States to Ap- 7»ly— Hawaiian Annexation. Washington. Dec. 3.—Peru is the first of the South American countries to open negotiations with the United States for a reciprocity treaty under tire provisions of the Dingley law. The negotiations were begun through the Peruvian minister here. Senor Eguiguren, and at the same time the authorities in Peru took action which has given much satisfaction to the state department here. This was the introduction of a measure granting authority to the president of Peru to conclude the reciprocity treaty without the usual formality of having it submitted to the congress of that country. In recognition of this tep our Minister Dudley expressed to Peru the satisfaction felt by the American government. The negotiations have proceeded briskly. Peru has submitted a iichedule of the articles on which it desires reciprocity concessions. These embrace brandies and wines, hides of cattle and goats, vicuna skins, sugar, wool, woven cotton goods. Peruvian bark. fuW>erandniajrf it is said, do not come into competition with American products. Senator Stewart, of Nevada, who arrived in Washington yesterday, says the people of the Pacific coast generally favor the ratification of the Hawaiian annexation treaty. He expressed the opinion that the treaty would not consume a great deal of the time of the senate. He said that so far as he knew Senator White, of California, was the only Pacific coast senator pronouncedly agains: the treaty. Senator Gray, who is a member of the committee on foreign relations, said in reply to a question that he thought there would be considerable delay in disposingof the treaty as many questions are involved which will require careful consideration and lead to considerable debate. The treaty occupies first place on the senate's executive calendar. Formulating; That Army Reprimand. Washington, Dec. 3.—The judge advocate general of the army. General Lieber, now has the Lovering case in hand and is preparing the reprimand which will be administered to the captain in conformity with the sentence of the court-martial. It is said at the war department that the president and Secretary Alger are dissatisfied with the leniency shown by the court in this case and the reprimand will be so sweeping In terms as to amount to a severe condemnation of those officers of the army who have shown by words or actions their approval of Captain Lovering's lotions. _^^____ DEADLOCK IN LUETGERT3 CASE. tomethin? Objectionable Found In Almost Every Veiilremeii Called. Chicago. Dec. 3.—State and defense in the Luetgert case seem to have reached a deadlock as far as acceptance of more jurors is concerned. For two days venireman after venireman has been summoned to the box and excused peremptorily or for cause. The original four jurors stili occupy their chairs in the south end of the jury box. They are evidently becoming amused with the rapidity with which flaws are discovered in well-appearing citizens. There were five peremptory challenges used by the attorneys yesterday, more than at any other session of the trial. Two men acceptable to the state were peremptorily challenged by the defense, and JIcEwen disposed of the veniremea who had made a good impression on Luetgert. The four men who were examined at great length by Attorney Harmon Wednesday afternoon had been looked up during the interim from theafternoon adjournment to the morning. Both the state and the defense challenged two of them as a result. Later.—One of th° four men selected to act as jurors in the Luetgert case is under suspicion. Reports have come to Deneen which imply that the man secured his position in the interests of the defense, and has for years been a friend of the sausag-emaker. Deneen put two of Inspector Schaack's most trusted men on the case. A report is Vtfp'ected today, and it may result in the discharge of the juror, and subsequent proceedings against him. PRESIDENT~GOElf^(THIS" MOTHER, Makes a Hurried Departure Owiiij; to tli« Aged Lady's Illness. "Washington, Dec. 3.—President McKinley left the city at 7:20 o'clock last night to hasten to the bedside of his sick mother at Canton. With him went Judge Day, assistant secretary of state. The president had made hurried arrangements for his departures- and during the afternoon disposed of a large volume of business awaiting his attention. He reached the station unattended a few minutes before the time for the train to leave. Desiring to avoid any demonstration the president instructed the coachman to drive to the baggage entrance where Assistant Secretary Day, Secretary Porter and Executive Clerk Cortellieu awaited, him. The president's stay at Canton will depend upon the condition which he finds his mother. If she improves he will return to Washington in time for the opening of congress and later go again to Canton. Hard Trip for Life-Savers. Harrisville. Mich., Dec. 3.—The steamer Egyptian, bound from Cleveland to Milwaukee, with a cargo of coal, burned to the water's edge in Lake Huron Wednesday night off Sturgeon Point. The fire was discovered by the Sturgeon Point life-saving crew about S o'clock, and started at once to the rescue, arriving at the burning boat at 11 o'clock. They could not save her, and her crew had been rescued before the life-savers rached her, so they were compelled to leave the Egyptian without doing anything, after rowing about thirty-five miles in weather nearly to zero. None of the life-savers suffered permanent injury from the cold. Mrs. Van Schaack Not Unhappy. Chicago, Dec. 3.—Mrs. Fione Lillian Van Schaack finds very little to make her fef-1 depressed because the $65.000 judgment which she obtained a few weeks ago in Brooklyn against her father-in-law. Peter Van Schaack, has be-?n set aside. She announces now that she will stay right here in Chicago and at once bring two suits against her husband's father. One of them will be for alienating the affections of her husband and the other will demand $450.000 for alleged libel In the meantime the fair young woman is busy writing "Letters from Hell." which is the title of a little study in psychology. Yes; Depends Whence the 'Xews Comes. Havana, Dec. 3.—Reports of the condition and movements of rebels in the east are most conflicting. It is said that General Gomez is coming west with 4,000 men. but it is also said that Gomez is still at the camp, where he has been for the last ten months, and is being attended by Dr. Caneda, staff surgeon. Want* $3OO,OOO for the Temple. Chicago, Dec. 3.—Mrs. Matilda B. Carse, at the regular monthly meeting of the city central W. C. T. TJ. at Willard halt, yesterday morning, made a personal appeal to the members present to assist in freeing the Temple building from debt. She wants $390,000 for that puropse. Cuban League Tells President McKinley His Duty as to the Current Rebellion. DEMANDS ACTION OF MOLE SAM. Says Three Wars Is Evidence of a Desire to Drive Spain Off tlie Island and Promises That Regardless of What Happens There Shall Be Continual Wur Until the Rebs "Get There"—Takes a Whack at the Money Power. Washington, Dec. 3.—Berkeley Balch. secretary of the Cuban League, appeared yesterday before President McKinley and presented the following argument in behalf of the Cuban insurgents: "Mr. President—We appear before you in the name of those who have died for the cause of freedom in the island of Cuba, and for those who are still ready to give their lives today or tomorrow for this cause. Also representing, as we claim, a majority of the people of the United States, who believe in that cause and demand that their wishes shall now be translated into efficient action by their chosen representatives. Thanks to the power, honor and patriotism of the American press, the people today know the essential facts of the Cuban situation. We submit to you therefore these ten propositions for your consideration: Three Wars Put iu as Evidence. "1. The three wars in Cuba within this century are proof of a genuine movement for the extension of democratic principles and the attainment of liberty from a tyrannical, corrupt and alien government. "2. Without the indirect aid given by this government to Spain the patriots would be farther advanced in their struggle. "3. Spain has lost Cuba as far as the present population is concerned. If, however, she is permitted to continue the cruel work of exterminating noncombatants she may possibly reconquer and repopulatc the island. Cuba an Orange To Ke .Squeezed. "4. If with our passive aid she unfortunately succeeds in doing this, when another generation comes the revolution will surely begin again. The governing classes in Spain of all parties have regarded Cuba for 000 years as an orange to be squeezed. They are unable to consider it otherwise and no amount of diplomatic 'effort on our part is likely to change their point of view. The other classes an? ignorant. Spain has held all her colonies with an iron hand until forced to let go. The war of liberation in Venezuela lasted fifteen years, and during the last five years of the -struggle no quarter was given by either side. A .FOOLISH DREAMT." Money Power in This Country the Obstacle to Cuban KecofirnitioH. "5. Autonomy is a foolish dream.It is evident that neither side understands it, wishes ii, or can administer it. Spain clearly offers it to amuse this government and to gain time. "6. A majority of the people of this country desire to see a free and independent Cuban republic. An opposing factor of great force is the money power. It is a fair conclusion to urge that a majority of our people believe that the assistance of our government till now has been given to Spain and withheld from the republic on account of the influence that "emanates from great financial interests, usually afraid of patriotic aggressive movements. "7. Our people have hoped for favorable action for Cuba, from the present administration, and have patiently waited to give the administration time for consideration of the wise road to this end. That patience is now exhausted. "8. Very few Cubans and still fewer people in this country desire immediate annexation: but independence is clear-" ly due to Cuban valor and sacrifices. "9. It is of supreme importance to our future defense that Cuba should be in the possesion of a friendly power. This Spain has never been, and probably never can be. "10. The friendship of the republic of Cuba is worth vastly more to us than that of Spain, for reasons of business and defense It is our duty and self- interest to recognize the belligerency, and logically follor.'ing this the Independence of the republic, and to conclude with it a defensive and offensive alliance. If this is not compatible with a continued friendship with Spain so much the worse for Spain. If Spain attack? us we can take care of our own. Out of the experience of our work, and from the study of over tweny years, this league asserts that these ten proposition. 1 ? are true and that their right understanding lead* to the only action which will solve the problem. "And now. Mr. President, in behalf of those we represent, we thank you for this opportunity to present their views. We hope for such action on your part as will bring a correct solution. We desire 'to state that this league and our sympathizers have 'enlisted for the war' or until =nch time as the republic nf Cuba shall become a fact in history." The president said he would give the argument careful consideration. Some More Taboofd Schemes. Washington. Dec. 3.—The postoffice department is taking a firm stand against the so-called "missing letter" and "missing word" contests which are being conducted by a number of publishers to increase the subscription* to their pap«r3.
