Washington, Jan. 28.—The house yesterday finally succeeded in passing the Indian appropriation bill, and the political debate which has been, raging since Monday was transferred to the District of Columbia bill, which followed it. The only two important changes made in. the Indian bill as passed were the elim- mination of the provisions for the leasing of the Gilsonite mineral lands of the Kiowa, Comanche, Apache and Wichita reservations, both of which, went out on points of order. The features of the debate were the speeches of Hartman (silver Republican) of Montana in denunciation of the financial policy of the administration, and of Dolliver in reply to the general attacks of the opposition. Reed In a Good Enough Tyrant. While Hartman was speaking- he "drapped into" the subject of the house rules and said he had no criticism to make against Speaker Reed personally. It was the system he opposed, not the man. "If we must have a tyrant," he shouted, "Thomas B. Reed is good enough for me." He then adverted to mutterings he had heard in the cloak rooms against the ."tyranny" exercised by the speaker. "I have told • these complainants," said Hartman, "time and again that if they didn't like the tyranny of the speaker they should shear him of his power," "I am afraid the gentleman from Montana has got his cloak' rooms mixed," interposed Quigg. [Republican laughter.] Perhaps I have." retorted Hartman. •But I give notice that those who are mixing- their cloak rooms now will do so in 1S98 and 1900. and triumph eventually upon the declarations of the Chicago platform and under the leadership of William Jennings Bryan." [Prolonged Democratic and Populist applause.] Iowa's Silver Tongue Got* the Floor. BeArmoncl criticised the Cuban policy of the administration, and with tine sarcasm ridiculed the official, explanation of the visit of the battleship Maine to Havana harbor. This drew from Dolliver of Iowa an eloquent reply. •'The question of Cuba," said Dol- livc-r, "is not a new question. .For seven years the administration of Grant was called upon to dea! with an insurrection in nearly every respect on all fours with the insurrection of today, and at the end of that time—seven years of responsibility, seven years of anxieties, of worry—in a message sent to this house, he warned the country that any intervention in the affairs of Cuba would be not only unwise but injurious. For my part I do not aspire to a larger patriotism than that which governed the official career of Ulysses S. Grant. For my part if I were looking for a wiser patriotism I would not resort to the rural districts of Missouri. [I^iu^hter.]. Leadership of the House. "My friend complains that the Republicans on this side of the house are under a tyranny and the mastery of one man. I deny it. There is no authority that constrains the Republican majority here except the policy of the Republican party and the administration oC a Republican president. My friend says that we are slaves. * * " It is true we have a leadership in this house, and I for one have very often felt a certain sense of satisfaction that I have not possibly expressed that we have a leadership of brains and character that men may follow without any loss of self-respect. [Great applause.] ABOCT BAItEI'S LEADERSHIP. Hawkeye Statesman Touches on Several House Characters. "I understand perfectly well the failure and difficulty of my friend from Missouri, and I appreciate it. The only leadership the Democratic party in this house has had is the leadership of its own party. It was put into the hands of a distinguished young friend of mine from Texas [Bailey], and he had u- tight for it every day at the extra ses- iion. [daughter.] One day the gentleman from Kansas [Simpson] got it away from him, and the next day the sceptre of authority and influence of party was seized by that picturesque character that has appeared among us from the far distant coast of Washington [Lewis]. [Laujrhter.] The next day the gentleman from Tennessee was fighting- to see who should have the leadership of the Democratic party: while in the background, always melodious and ready with his advice, and ready to seize the falling sceptre of his friend, was the gentleman from Missouri [DeArmond]. who has just taken his seat and who in that conirress and n this has delivered more speeches with more ease and less effect than any man that has appeared in the deliberations of congress for the ten years that I have lad the honor to serve on this floor." IGreat laughter and applause on the Sepublican side.] Today at. 6 p. m. the senate will vote upon the Teller resolution and the pending amendments thereto. When the senate took up the resolution yesterday the agreement made last week that the final vote upon it should be taken before adjournment yesterrjay was changed in order thstt all senators might have an opportunity to speak. Yesterday's session continued for mol* than afcc hours, the resolution being un- discussion throughout the entire session. Tvniie the speecnes Jar the most part were studied efforts, tte session was replete with lively incidents and spicy colloquies. Wolcont resented a remark made by Aldrich yesterday about party discipline. The latter had said that discipline on that (the Democratic) side of the chamber was too strong for Lindsay ever to sever himself from 'th» Democr.itic party. . "I wish that party loyalty were as strong on this side of the cEis-mber." he added. ^Wolcott was on his f?et in an instant. "The senator from Rhode Islanc'l," said he tartly, "expresses the wish that party discipline were stronger on this side of the chamber, l wish so, too. And I wish that senators on this side of the chamber would not go off from the tenets and principles of the Republican party at the behest of an Indianapolis convention as some of them have done." Cockrell, in the oourse of his remarks, produced a $20 gold piece and inquired whether any Republican desired to give him for it forty standard silver dollars. This proposition brought on an interesting: colloquy, concerning- the value of Filvftr coins in Mexico. Foraker -asked i:E it were not true that with one of our silver dollars two Mexican dollars could be purchased in Mexico. Cockrell replied that that might be true, but it was because the standard silver dollar was equal to a gold dollar. He maintained that value to gold and silver money was given to it by law. COM:HISSIO>~EII HAS AUTHOBITT. Report of x Senate Committee on His Recently Announced. Hiile. Washington, Jan. 28.—Senator G-al- linger, chairman of the committee on penslors, yesterday presented a report from tbat committee detailing the result of the committee's investigation as to the iiuthority of the commissioner of pensions for refusing to pass upon ap- plicaticns tor -increase of pension until one year after, the original pension has been granted or rejected. Gallinger includes in, his "report a statement from the commissioner of pensions in which that official claims that the regulation comes strictly within the duties and power of the -commissioner, and that it is in the interest of the service. He says that-of the 550,000 claims now pending before him $450,000 are for increase,, and he adds: "The experience of the bureau is that a considerable percentage of the claimants so soon as they get their certificates of allowance of pension, file an application for increase and get the machinery in motion to have the increase claim given preference over claims for pensions that have been on file from one to seven or more years." The conclusion of th5 committee is that the commissioner has amplf authority to make the rule and that it is "clearly in the interest of unpensioned soldiers." Dole Is Not. Hen- Lobbying. Washington. Jan. 2S.—President Dole has lost no time in making his position plain. He does not appear in Washing- foi/.'as a lobbyist for annexation, but'is here for the purpose of giving such explanation of the Hawaiian situation as the administration and congress may ask of him. One of Ms first visitors yesterday was Senator Morgan. Uen. Alffer's Condition, Washington, Jan. 2S. — It was said yesterday that the condition of Secretary Alger remains unchanged, although on the whole he is probably better than he was Monday. CIVIL SERVICE FIGHT AT CHICAGO. Bn:vtcii at One Point the City Attorney Coiues Up Smiling. Chicago, Jan. 2S.—Sheriff Pease visited the civil service commission yesterday, read to Commissioners Kraus, Winston and Washburne a mandate from the supreme court of the state requiring them to place all the heads of departments under, the civil service law. The commissioners are directed to certify obedience to the writ by Feb. 1. Any negligence or procrastination will be "at their peril." This places back under the civil service rules the positions, which were declared to be the "heads of d-l-partments" by Corporation Counsel Thornton. But Thornton is a man of resources. He lias a new basis of operations against the law. He has found the following in article 5 of the state constitution: "All civil officers, except members of the general assembly and such ferior officers as may be by law exempted, shall, before they enter on the duties of their respective offices, take .ind subscribe the following oath or affirmation. " ' * And no other oath, declaration, or test shall be required as a qualification." This last sentence is the important one. "It has been held that policemen are officers of thestate," said Thornton. "They are, therefore, r.ot required to take any test beyond their oath of office. This applies to ;nany other positions, and if the courts hold with me would invalidate a large part of the civil service law." ONE MORE BLOT ON OHIO. MULEf Of) President Puts Himself on Record at a New York City Banquet. AIMS AT THE TELLEE EESOLVE, Devilish Outrage Committed by a Gang of Thuffs and RnffiaiiK. Jackson. O., Jan. 2S. — Wednesday night as Lulu Friend, a 15-year-old grirl, was going from the railway station to her home near the Tom Corwin mine accompanied by John R. Myers and Tint Faught, two friends of the family, they were attacked by a crowd of ruffians, who overpowered the two men and carried oft the girl. Myers and Faught offered a desperate resistance, and the latter was struck with a stone, fracturing his skull so that he is not expected to live. After gaining- possession of the girl the band of ruffians carried her into one of the Wellston company's mines, where twenty men outraged her. Then the miscreants fled, leaving- her half dead in the ipine. where she -was found soon afterwards by a searching party. When found she was in a terrible condition, mentally and physically. She was taken to the hospital, but the physicians do not think she can live, Xo arrests have yet been made, but the COlice are at .work on tiie case. Declares That United State* Obligation! Mafit B« Paid In Tb»t SToney Which I* j the Best Reg-ardles« of What the Contract Says—Does x °* Baliev* in That "Option" • — C*ll£ on Congress to Act and Quote* the St. I,oui« Platform. New York, Jan. 28.— The third and last day of the National Association of Manufacturers' convention closed with the election o£ officers. Theodore C. Search, of Philadelphia, was unanimously elected president, and E. P. Wilson, of Cincinnati, was re-elected secretary. This was the last of the business, but one other matter remained to be attended to and. that was the banquet at the Waldorf-Astoria, to which the president of the United States had been bidden and consented to come, with his wife and several notabilities of the national capital. The president was not only present, as the gruest of honor, but as the speaker of the evening from whom, was expected the most important utterances. Frye in the Wrong Box. An incident of the speech-making after the banquet indicated the feeling of those present as to Hawaiian anexa- tion. Frye is a strong annexer, and he said that if the treaty were not ratified in less than one year the islands would be under the protection oJ Great Britain. This was met with cries of "no." Much confusion followed. He asked the guests to exercise their influence with the senate to have 'the treay ratified. There were cheers: and cries of "no" as well. During all of Senator Frye's references to Hawaii there were several "noes" yelled out when he referred to a treaty. He said in conclusion that if he was a dictator he would build and hold the Nicaragua!! canal, take Hawaii, build a railroad to Terra del Fuego and subsidize the merchant marine of the country. Was an Elaborate Banquet. . The banquet was one of the largest and moist elaborate affairs of the kind ever given in this city. One thousand guests \vere seated at the tables. President JfcKinley was driven from the Windsor hotel and was received at the Waldorf-Astoria at $6:30 p. m. by the committee of merchants and at once taken to "the royal chambers." Half an hour later he appeared in the reception room, where he held a levee for more- than an hour. "JThe banquet hall wes magnificently decorated, the tiers of boxes belnK draped with silken banners. The president's flag was suspended over the head of the table from the president's box. The march to the banquet hall began at 7:15. President McKinley, with the committee of thirty-six, marched into the hall, the band playing "Hail to the Chief." He was introduced to the company, after the menu had been disposed of, with a few graceful words by Theodore C. Search. President Arisen to Speak. Amid a burst of enthusiastic appla-uee the president arose to respond. After a plea for measures to enlarge our foreign commerce he took up the question of money— the one which had been most eagerly looked for. He said: "There is another duty resting upon the national government — 'to coin money and regulate the value thereof.' This duty requires that our government shall regulate the value of its money by the highest standards of commercial honesty and national honor. The money of the United States is and must forever be unquestioned and unassailable. If doubts remain they must be 'removed. If weak places are discovered they must be strengthened. Nothing should 'ever tempt us— nothing ever will tempt us — to scale down the sacred debt of the nation through a legal technicality. MUST PAY IN THE VERY BEST. Whether the Contract Use* "Coin" o Other Word, "Whatever may be the language of the contract the United States will discharge all its obligations in the currency recognised as the best throughout the civilized world at the times of payment. Nor will we ever consent that the wages of labor or its frugal savings shall be scaled down by permitting payment la dollars of less value than, the dollars accepted as the best dollars in every enlightened nation of the earth. Under existing conditions our citizens cannot be excused if they do not redouble their efforts to secure such financial legisla.- tion as will place their honorable intentions beyond dispute. All those who represent—as you do — the great conservative and the progressive business interests of the country owe it not only to themselves but to the people to insist upon the settlement of this great ques>- tion now, or else to face the alternative that it must be again submitted for arbitration at the polls. "This is our plain duty to more than 7.000,000 voters who fifteen months ago won a great po'atical battle on the issue, among others, that tne United States government would not permit a doubt 1:0 exist anywhere concerning the j stability and integrity of its currency or the inviolability of its obligations of every kind. That, is my interpretation of that victory. Whatever effort, therefore, is required to make tb.e settle- ' mem of this vital question clear and conclusive for all time we are bound in good conscience to undertake, and if possible realize. That is our commission—our present charter from the j>eo- ple. It will not suffice for citizens nowadays to say simply that they are in favor of 'sound money.' That is not enough. The people's purpose must be- given the vitality of, public law. j Better an honest effort -with failure | than the avoiding of so plain and com- j mandlng a duty. The difficulties in the j of a satisfactory .reform, are, if j must oe acmuieo, umta«r rew in nun*« nor slight in degree: but progress cannot fail to be made with a fair and thorough trial. An honest attempt will be the best proof of sincerity of purpose. Discussion cannot hurt, it wilt only help the cause. * « * Half- heart ednusf. never won a battle. Nations and parties without abiding principles and stiinx resolution tn enforce them, even if It costs a contlnous itruggrle to do so. a.n<l temporary sacrifice, are, never in the highest degree successful leaders in the progress of mankind. For us to attempt aothlng In the face of the oresent fallacies and the constant effort To spread them is to lose valuable ground already •won and practically to weaken the forces of 'sound money' for their battles of the future. "The financial plank of the St. Louis platform is still as commanding upon .Republicans and those who served with them, in the last campaign as on the day It was adopted and promulgated. [The president then quoted the plank in full.} •Tills is in reality a command from tlis people who gave the administration to the party now in power, and who are still anxiously waiting for the execution of their free and omnipotent" will by those of us who hold commissions from that supreme tribunal."
