PRAISE FOR ISLANDS CEX. MAC ATITIUR SAYS PHILIPPINES ARE FINEST GROUP IN THE WORLD SENATORS HEAR TESTIMONY Former Military Governor Explains to Committee the Conditions and Probable Future of £ tlit? Archipelago. WASHINGTON, April B.—Gen. Mac Arthur today continued his testimony ( rning conditions in the Philippine ore the senate committee Philippines. His discussion at the beginning • sion was devoted to i the conditions winch led up to the present ktate of mind of the Filipinos. He said that long before the advent of the Americans the germs of democracy planted and that these had originated in the agitations in Spain of n century ago which had been reiiuctt d in the Spanish colonies. He also the conditions in the archio at the time of the American occupation, saying that at that time the Filipinos were in a vindictive and resentful mood toward Spain with a general ng for liberty. Taking these psychological conditions Into consideration and also giving due to Die character of the people he had felt when he assumed command of the islands that there was to be found the most fertile roil for the planting of the best type of Kepublican institutions. Islands Best in the World. Gen. Mac Arthur Ithen took up and dlsd economic condition in tne archii, saying 1 that they are tne finest group of islands in the world, occupying a strategic position absolutely unexcelled. tailing, ho said, that the archipelago must necessarily exert an active and potential influence upon the affairs of the entire cast in both a political and a military way. The China sea is only 750 miles wide, he considered only a safety moat. The islands would therefore stand to pro- American interests in the Orient without the exertion of much physical power on the part of the United States. ] Knee he concluded that the presence of this country in the Philippines will always insure all the protection needed in the east and no one can now say how great those needs may be. Their position is such, he said, that from th^se islands whatever passes along the coast of Asia may be observed, as :t must pass under the shadow of the American flag. He therefore concluded that the "possession, the permanent possession of the Philippine archipelago is not only o-f supreme importance, i^ut absolutely essential to American interests." He believed, he adkied, that when the Philippine people come to realize the mission of the American people among them and that they were a chosen people for the dissemination of American ideas they would rally to tais inspiring thought and cheerfully follow and support the American flag. Continuing Gen. Mac Arthur grew eloquent on describing the mission of the Americans. This country's presence in the Islands, ha said, was, to his mind, a process of spontaneous evolution, and he added that he believed that the permanent occupation was a necessary consequence, the logical sequence of national prosperity to doubt which was to doubt the wisdom of our constitution. "We should,'* he •went on, "regard ourselves, as a people, as the custodians of an imperishable idea held In trust for mankind, and we would proclaim this message to the world." He also expressed, the opinion that tne Filipinos could be rapidly organized into political bodies, and said that they were eager to secure educational facilities. Gave Them Civil Government. He said because of his opinion that the Filipinos afforded splendid opportunities for the dissemination of American ideas, he had decided when he assumed command at Manila to conduct military operations with a drastic hand while he at the came "time tried to give them the most enlightened civil government wherever opportunity offered. Concerning the condition of the war in the Philippines, he said that while it was war he doubted whether any war of modern times had been conducted with as much humanity and self-restraint as this yar had been. In this connection Senator Lodge asked a number of questions bearing upon the reports of cruelties practiced by American soldiers, to which the witness replied that while there doubtless had been Instances of excesses the general conduct on the part of the troops had been of an opposite character as the general orders had been. Moreover all violations of the rules of war had been instantly punished. Replying to questions by Senator Car.mack, he said that the Filipinos like American ideas of personal liberty as embodied in our constitution. "This," he salJ, "realizes an ideal of their own." "Then they have an ideal?" interjected Senator Oarmack. The reply was: "They have—moat de- Udedly." "You do not then regard them as a m^ jm\ This signature la on every box of the genuine (§ *2n*£L- Laxative Brotno-Quinine TaWoij,---— Sf V&7~&y3** &i remedy that cure? a cold in on© day, miserable, corrupt, cruel and degradec "By no means. Such a view is, to my mind, a mistaken view." Senator Carmack also asked about the exploitation of the material resources of the islands, and Ge-n. ilacArthur replied that one of the great apprehensions of tile people was that they might be deprived of these resources and thus relegated to a position of social inferiority in the islands. On thjs point he said they were very sensitive. They did not care so much for their treatment outside the islands, but were very particular as to social equality when within their own country. In reply to a question from Senator Culberson, Gen. Mac Arthur declined to institute a comparison between the Filipino and the American negro. "The Filipinos represent a great people," he said, "but I have never had occasion to compare them with other people, and I do not want to attempt such a comparison, which might be unjust to both." "Do you not think," Senator Carmack asked, "that the Filipinos ought to have a voice in their own government in all cases where they have to deal with franchises and concessions?" "That question is somewhat hypothetical," replied Gen. Mac Arthur. "We are approximating that condition now. I would, however, like to see the Filipinos pretty well represented In their al government, and I should like to see the question of franchises except for railroads held in abeyance until the evolution proceeds further." The committee adjourned until Thursday. ROBSON PRAISES STAGE CONSIDERS ITS IXFLIJEXCE FOR, GOOD GREATER THAN PULPIT'S In an Address He Declares That Actors Generally Do Not Believe That Bacon Wrote Shakspcre, CHICAGO, April B.—Stuart Robson and the students of the Chicago Musical and Dramatic college indulged in what fTle comedian termed an "interchange of talk" this afternoon. Eight hundred persons were present. Mr. Robson said lio believed the stage was capable of exerting greater good than the pulnit, and that the more progressive clergymen of the day agree with him. "The trouble i 3 that some clergymen confound the stage of Jefferson and Irving and their fellows with the disreputable stage and so condemn us all," continued Mr. Robson. "You might as well condemn the print- Ing press because it sometimes strikes off bad books; or condemn the pulpit because a minister or a deacon sometimes falls into evil ways. Pure, wholesome plays, and players of clean, moral lives are as great a factor for good as all the creeds and all the churches. "Forty years ago I was banished from Delaware because I was a player-folk; nearly fifty years ago I was arrested In the university city of New Haven because I could not pay a license of $20, my night's receipts being but $15, and 1 was kept in jail two days, when the late Noah Porter, president of Yale, who was then beginning to see the light, made up the $5 difference and I was released from prison. All that is changed now, and the actor of repute Is no longer an object of ridicule, scorn and even abhorrence." Asked by a student why it was "some actors seemed content to play one part year after year, Mr. Robson took occasion to pay eloquent tribute to Joseph Jefferson. He said that this generation of playgoers did not realize, perhaps, that Jefferson was the greatest of American comedians since Burton, because he had become so identified with the character of Rip Van Winkle. "Jefferson has tried time and time again to show the public his versatility, but the public has doomed him, enslaved him to that one part, just as it doomed Frank Mayo, a truly great actor, to tha character of Davy Crockett." Asked what actors thought of the Bacon-Shakspere controversy, the veteran comedian replied: "They thought nothing about it." "I have read some of Lord Bacon's poetry," he said, "and while I can't swear Shakspere did write his own plays, I can swear Lord Bacon did not write them." TOOMBS JURY DISAGREE THE TWO BROTHERS KAXE REFLSE TO CONSIDER HIM GUILTY. CHICAGO, April S.—The jury In th« Toombs murder trial was called into court at 10 o'clock, but had failed to agree on a verdict. All but two brothers named Kane expressed the belief that an agreement was Impossible. The Kanes urged the court to send them out for further deliberation, and the jury again retired. After several hours of further deliberation the jury was finally called in and having reached no agreement was discharged. The two brothers who requested that the jury be sent out the second time, Michael H. Kane, a brakeman, and Francis J. Kane Jr., a brass finisher, are the jurors who refused to even consider Tombs guilty. They based their belief on the alias set up by Jim Daughcrty, who testified that the defendant was drinking in a saloon at the time th^girl was strangled and her weighted body dropped through the ice in the river. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 1902. News of the Northwest KISSES CAUSE SUIT EMPLOYE OP civil WAR. VETERAN asks 95,000 DAMAGES for. FORCIBLE EMBRACES DEFENDANT FILES A DENIAL He Declares That Caresses Were Xot Forced on the Plaintiff, as She Charged Before the Court. BARABOO, "Wis., April B.—Mrs. Sarah Stayton, of Spring Green, is suing David G. James, ex-department commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, and residing at Richard Center, for $5,000 damages, and sets forth three causes for the action. Mrs. Stayton lived with her husband on a farm owned by defendant, two and a half miles from Richland Center, and both she and her husband were in fact his Employes. It is at this farm house that plaintiff alleges the defendant committed the acts complained of. It was about the first of February, 1901, that defendant came to the house during the absence of her husband, and, in the language of the complaint, "assaulted this plaintiff, and when no one was present in the house to protect her, grabbed her violently and against her protest in his arms and forcibly embraced and hugged her, and forcibly and against her protest kissed and otherwise injured and maltreated her; that she was only able to release her. self by exerting to the uttermost all the force she possessed, and finally was able alter much persistence to drive him away from her and from the house; and this plaintiff forbade him to approach her ana resisted to the utmost of her ability to repel and prevent his approaches." A month later the complaint goes on, the defendant, "against her protest again embraced her, and threw his arms about her and endeavored to kiss her, and in the struggle of this plaintiff to resist and free herself from him the said defendant tore the garments which the plaintiff was then wearing." Six weeks more elapsed when, the complaint sets forth, "the said defendant again entered the said house and again attempted to embrace and kiss this plaintiff, and in his endeavors so to do pursued her through the house as she was running to escape him and chased her out of the house, but failed that time to take hold of her person." The answer of the defendant, through his attorney, F. W. Burnham, consists of an admission of the formal allegations as to residence and that the plaintiff and her husband w Tere employed by the defendant, followed by a general denial of all the charges constituting the grounds of the complaint. PEACE REIGNS AT HAYWARD. Peck Ticket Cornea Into Full Con- trol of the Town. HAYWARD, Wis., April B.—The reck ticket came into full possession of the town offices l;isc night through an agreement reached between the warring factions. Both sides had some standing in their claims. No denial is made that the election would not stand the test of the courts. The Peck people, on the other hand, had equitable right to the offices as expressed by their overwhelming majority. Public Indignation over the attempted frustration ot the ballot \wbs intense, but there is every indication now of more peaceful relations that have existed since the Enterprise started its crusade. Sorao concessions, however, have been made to the Shire people, in order to restore peace. Its party organ is to have its share of county printing. The most important concession, however, is the withdrawal of the suits for the recovery of $10,(XX) against the county board. This Is thougHt by many to be one thing for which they were making the whole effort. Adjt. Gen. Boardman left for home yesterday. DEAD FISH MENACE HEALTH. Tons of Carcasses Line Shores of Lakes and Bayous. LA CROSSE, Wis., April Hundreds of tons of dead fish menaae the health of the people of nils vicinity. The shores of every slough and bayou on the Minnesota side of the river are lined with the carcasses of buffalo fish averaging eighteen Inches in length. With the arrival of hot weather a disease-laden stench will pervade the whole country adjacent to the flats and last throughout the season. A dozen yards from the station in La Crescent is a little slough in which may be seen floating about hundreds of pounds of dead buffalo. In the fall there was a general rise of water and then a sudden fall, leaving shoals of fish stranded in the small sloughs. After the ice formed, death from suffocation followed. The Minnesota and Wisconsin health authorities will be asked to investigate. SOLVE SERIOUS DILEMMA. Alderman Finally Clears Up a Residence Tangle. Special to The Globe. I.A CROSSE, Wis.. April B.—Aid. John Dunden, of the Fifteenth ward, has escaped from a dilemma which placed before him one or two alternatives—the abandonment of his family or of giving up his seat in the common council. Aid- Dunden sold his property and was forced to seek other quarters. With one exception, every house in the Fifteenth ward was occupied. To go out of the ward meant to lose his place in the city council, and it was Impossible for his" large family to remain and be Loused. A compromise has been errected however, and the one vacant house, though too small for the Dunden family, has "been rented, and the headquarters will be established there iar the present at least. G.

All Persons So Engaged Are Ordered to Leave Town. SIOUX CITY. lowa, April S—Mayor Caldwell has called the gambling fraternity together and notified them that after next Saturday night they must not operate here.

Mayor Caldwell today entered upon the duties of the office of chief executive of Sioux City. The new council meets tonight. NEW ADMINISTRATION GOES IN Mayor O'Hare Will Assume Office Today at West Snperlorr. WEST SUPERIOR, Wis., April S.-The last council meeting of the Parker administration will be held tonight. The election returns will be canvassed and announced officially. They have already been gone over by a committee and sho-v that with the exception of cne or two years the pluralities rolled up by the Democrats are greater than the Republicans or any party have ever secured. Mayor-elect O'Hare is given a plurality over Mayor Parker of 461 votes, receiving 2,069 as against 1,608 for Parker and 1,360 for Dietrich. The largest majority was that given the Democratic candidate for assessor, William F. Harper, who received 1,044 more votes than his Republican opponent, A. R. Mills. Harper has a case on his hands, however, that may result disastrously to hi 3 aspirations. This is the first year an assessor has been elected. There ha 3 been, a board of three heretofore, appointed by the mayor, one each year. Two of the holdovers have brought suit to test the ordinance by which the general charter sections providing for but one assessor were adopted, and the matter Is to be thoroughly tested in the courts. The returns of the election committee show R. L. Hunter to have won out for treasurer over the Democratic candidate, John Hobe, by eighteen votes. Hunter was the only Republican elected. James J. Surch receives an official plurality of 624 over A. Reedfors and Charles Andreen, sp.lit convention candidates of the Republicans. EDITOR SUED FOR LIBEL. Candidate for Marshall Demands Damages of B. E. Darby. OWATONNA, Minn.. April B.—The pa,pers in the action of Adolph Mallinger against Benjamin E. Darby have b en served. Malhnger, the city marshal, is .suing Darby, who publishes thevPeople's Press, for £5.000 damages for libel in the last issue of the Press prior to election. Editor Darby called Mallinger. who was a candidate for re-election, a blackmailer and made ether statements regarding him through the columns of his paper. Mallinger notified him to retract before election day or he would sue him for libel. Darby's paper is a weekly and he did not get out an extra to retract, and in consequence has the suit upon his hands. lie did, however, in his next regular issue, make the following retraction below the notice he had received: "We publish the above notice in full in justice to Mr. Mallinger. At the time of publication referred to we, in good faith, supposed the facts stated in the article were true and the public was entitled to the information. We have no knowledge that such purported facts, or any of them, are true, and we therefore retract the paid article and each and every statement, matter and thing therei m contained." No end of jesting has grown out of the retraction and the matter is a topic of common conversation. The marshal says he will push the suit through the courts unless Darby pays a good round sum.

HAMILTON'S DIVORCE SUIT RIO- VEALS A ROMANCE Slander, He Charges, Lends Him to Separation From First Wife, and Second Companion Is Wealthy and Former Patient. SIOUX FALLS, S. D., April B.—After persistent efforts, the nature of the charges made by Dr. Allan McLane Hamilton, the famous New York physician and grandson of Alexander Hamilton, in his application for divorce from his wife, Florence R. Hamilton, have finally been obtained. To escape publicity the case was filed at Elk Point, in the extreme southeastern portion of the state, and the papers were withheld from the public. The couple were married at Baltimore or. May 23, 1574. The complaint recites that upon arriving in New York a eeries of complaints, slander and persecution or. the part of his wife began, and have continued, so It is alleged, until tho present time, to the great injury of his business and the wrecking of his health. The defendant made no appearance at the trial of Dr. Hamilton's divorce suit, and he was granted an absolute divorce from her by default. The couple have one child, a son. who is now in the United States regular army. Mac Copeland Tomlinson, to whom he was married immediately upon securing his divorce, is an Englishwoman. She came to Sioux Falls about the first of last August and has resided here continuously since that time. She is wealthy, and has a summer home on the island of Capri, off the coast of Italy. Her former husband, Frederick Tomlinson, is an architect. She recently procured a divorce from him here. The new Mrs. who will doubtless become a leader in New York society circles, is a handsome woman. The first meeting between the couple took place while Dr. Hamilton was conducting his London office. Becoming ill, the present Mrs. Hamilton engaged the services of the doctor. This was some time after Dr. Hamilton had separated from his wife. Their association at that time as physcian and patient ripened into love, which has now culminated, aft' r each had been freed from former matrimonial alliances, in their uniting for life. FROWN UPON 'JUMPERS' AMERICAN ASSOCIATION TO HOLD PLAYERS TO CONTRACTS. MILWAUKEE, Wis., April B.— Charles Havenor, treasurer of the Milwaukee American association ball team, said tonight that the American association will not countenance the acceptance of contract jumpers. "That was the agreement all of the club owrrers entered into, and we intend to live up to It," said Mr. Havenor. The statement was made with reference to the report that George Tebeau, of the Louisville club, had signed Third Baseman Schaub, said to have previously signed a Toronto contract before he accepted Tebeau's terms. Continuing, tha Milwaukee magnate said: "If Tebeau gisned Schaub and anybody can produce a contract with the player signed previously to the one Tebeau has in his possession, the Milwaukee club will refuse to play with the Louisville team when It comes to Milwaukee, if he is on the team."

TARIFF FIGHT GOES TO FLOOR Continued From First Page. ban reciprocity bill, which opened In the house today, was disappointing from a spectacular standpoint. Payne *l>ea<lM in Debate. There were no sensational clashes after the debate was actually begun and none of the bitterness which expected to crop out on the floor came to the surface. The vote on the motion to go into committee of the whole to consider the bill, however developed the lines of cleavage and showed that tba Democrats aie quite as much divided on the question as is the majority. In the division, which is regarded us practically a test vote on the bill, 113 Republicans and 63 Democrats voted for the motion, and 41 Democrats and 39 Republicans against it. The vote was in reality moTe embarrassing to the Democrats than to the Republicans, as the members of the minority had called a conference for tonight at which they desired to get together on a course of action. The vote forced the hands of the Democrats as individuals before the caucus. Mr. Payne, the Republican leader, opened the debate for the bill today in a strong speech whicii commanded close attention from both sides of the houso. There were only two other speeches. Mr. Newlands, a Democrat from Nevada, took the position that the conct «.siin should not be made to Cuba unless she were invited at the same time to become a part of the United States. Mr. McClellan, a New York Democrat, who was the last speaker, favored a 5'J per cent reduction for the benefit of Cuba, but gave notice that If the rate of reduction was not increased he would vote for the bill. He contended that reciprocity was in line with time-honored doctrine, and that while Republicans might fear it. Democrats should not. Tnwney Im Overruled. Mr. Tawr.ey (Minn.), as a parliamentary inquiry, demanded to know upon what theory the bill was privileged. Mr. Payne replied that the~bill was one affecting revenue, and the speaker sustained this view. Thereupon Mr. Robertson (La.) raised the point of order that the bill did not come within the purview of the rule. His contention was that the bill proposed to authorize reciprocal trade relations with Cuba—that it was not a bill to raise or reduce revenue and not amendable as such. The speaker held that under a long line of precedents, the bill was privileged. Mr. Newlands (Nev.) attempted to secure a ruling of the chair upon the questio"h of whether amendments affecting the general reduction of the tariff would be in order, but the speaker declined to rule upon a question not before the house. Mr. Robertson (La.) attempted to propose a proposition as to the length of general debate, but Mr. Payne cut him off with a demand for the "regular order." The first test of strength came upon the motion to go into committee of the whole. A laughable incident occurred on the division. On the viva voce vote the chorus of "nays" was louder than the "ayes," and the speaker announced that the "nays" seem to have it. He lifted his gavel and looked at Mr. Payne, the majority leader, expecting him to demand a division, but Mr. Payne made no move. Call for a Division. "The nays have it," announces the 3 speaker. Simultaneously Mr. McClellan (N. V.) saved the day by shouting, "Division, I demand a division." The result of the rising vote was watched with great interest. It resulted: Ayes, 107; nays, 107. A dozen Republicans demanded tellers, and Mr. Fordney (Rep., Mich.) and Mr. Underwood (Dem., Ala.) demanded the ayes and nays. The roll call followed. Many of those who had voted against tha motion on the rising vote changed their attitude when they were placed on record, and the friends of reciprocity won an easy victory, the motion being carried 177 to 80. Accordingly the house went into committee of the whole, Mr. Sherman, of New York, in the chair.

The remainder, Gen. Wood reported, was held by Cuban planters or commission houses. That sugar, Mr. Payne said, was being held by the Cubans awaiting action by congress. "Is it not also fair to assume," Interposed W. A. Smith, of Michigan, "that the sugar trust, whkh is the principal customer of the Cuban planters, la holding off awaiting action by congress?" Mr. Payne said he could not be prevented from trying to help Cuba by tear of the .sugar trust. "Do you propose to treat Cuba as if she wtre a part of the United States?" asked Mr. Lloyd (Mo.;.
