Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Agreed to. The house joint resolution was passed for the suspension of certain features of the law authorizing the transporta- tion of goods through the United States to the free zone of Mexico, so long as the Mexican free zone law extent. Senator Allen indulged in a sharp and personal criticism ot the financial situa- tion as all Incident to Senator Harris' resolution for a.night session to conside er the bill to issue 97,000.000 in sewer bonds for Washington, D. C. \We are going bond crazy,\ said Senator Al- len. \The president wants bonds, the secretary of the treasury wants bonds, senators on-jaoth sides of the chamber want bonds.\ In the . course of his speech Senator Arlen referred to the reports that Semi- . -- tors Teller and.Vest were populists, and extended to them a cerd:al welcome to the populists' ranks. The income tax question came up next on Senator Gorman's motion to recon- sider approval of the conference report of the bill amending the law. Senator Morgan said a singular feat- ure had crept into this conference re- port that had not been considered by either house. It changed the law so far as to exempt corporations from fur- nishing a list of sttlaries of employes. He defended the conference changes The employes had asked for it. Senator Oorman referred to the re- markable attitude of the other branch -of congress on the question of corpora- tions, and compared the course of the house on the tariff bill with the course of the house conferees now. Senator Chandler said this disclosed -Was- werballa ditaglista.at the otaoSere nee committees. Legislation .was enacted which neither branch of congress had considered. This change was \worked into\ the conference report is the Inter- est of great corporations. One class of these corporation employes was about the halls of congress today, laboring to secure the passage of the pooling bill. Undoubtedly this was a class of employ- es the great railroad corporations did not wish to report with the Ilst of sala- ries for their work about congress. On motion of Senator Vest, the mo- tion of Senator Gorman to reconsider the change was 'laid on the table, 67 to 10. SECTARIAN SCHOOLS. The consideration of the Indian ap- propriation bill was then resumed. The conference report on the pension ap- propriation bill was agreed to. It re- tains the provision making 86 the min- imum for pensions. It also retains re- peal of the present law, truspending the pensions of persons living outside 'If the country. The sectarian school question came up when the item of Indian schools was reached. Senator Cockrell explained that the appropriation committee had ...ought to take out of the bill every- thing that was Catholic, everything that was Protentant and thus to sep- arate church from state and eliminate the denominational question. Catholic schools had heretofore been omitted from the bill and the committee omit- ted the Lincoln school at Philadelphia and Hampton school, Virginia, because they were Protestant schools. The bill also provided for the government pur- enase of Indian schools, now owned by the various denominations. Senator Lodge said the secretary of the Interior had recommended gradual abolition of sectarian schools and they had carried out this policy. Senator Hawley urged that in aban- doning sectarian schools there should be no abandonment of Christian teachings In government schools. He would rather have a school rim by Jesuits than to have one with no God in it at all. Senator Cockrell, chairman of the ap- propriations committee, said he was a Protestant of Protestants, but he would not deny to Catholics what he lock for Protestants. Seven Catholic schools were stricken from the house bill and two Protestant schools retejned. Sen- ator Cockrell said that in idew of the excitement throughout the country on this subject the committee had derided to make a clean sweep of both Cellulite and Protestant schools Senator Pettigrew offered an amend• meet specifically authorising the Indian borewu officers to tote 8550.000 of the j amount.

NO MONEY FOR CARLE PLRPOSES. the House Defeats the Senate Amend- ment by a Close Vote. . Washington, Feb. 21. -The house re- sunied consideration of the senate amendment to the diplomatic and con- sular appropriation bill, appropriating 8500,000 to aid in the construction of a submarine cable from the United States to the Hawaiian islands. Mr. Hooker of Mississippi opened the debate In opposition to the proposed appropriation. By the terms of this amendment, he said, the government was to own, control and operate this cable. Such a proposition had never been made before. Mr. Storrer of Ohio called attention to the necessity of the cable as expressed in two of President Cleveland's mes- sages and the recommendations of Mr. Bayard when he was secretary of state. That was when there wee a democrat at the head of the department. Thing* were different now that there was a secretary in the state -department who rose above or below his party accord- ingly as he was viewed. In conclusion Mr..V.toritar.oaal apt a 4112i•xl so eabk was now as much a necessity to the navy as the aleotrie signal which con- nects the pilot house with the engine - room of a battleship. Mr. Draper of Massachusetts said he favored this cable as a preliminary step toward the annexation of the Hawaiian lets nds. Mr. Hermann of Oregon said that to the Pacific coast the question of a cable connection with Honolulu overshadowed and transcended all others, save only that of the construction of the Nicar- agua canal. The people of the Ha- walin islands gave us 90 per cent, of their trade. More of our ships entered the port of Honolulu than any other port in the world last year. Liverpool not excepted. Aside from commercial reasons for the construction of this cable, there were patriotic and public MORRIE. Mr. Harter of Ohio - thought that this cable should be laid by private capital and he concluded that private parties had appeared before the committee and asked for a charter for this pur- pose. Mr. Ryan of New York thought tb house could well afford in the closibg hours of the sessien._to show its sym- pathy with merchants desiring to ex- tend our trade hy voting an appropria- tion for the construction of this cable. Mr. Sickles of New York earnestly supported the cable proposition. He was compelled to Appeal from the judg- ment of the house committee on foreign affairs to that of the senate committee. As an American he had a platform of his own. He favored annexation. As a . democrat he found his warrant in the policy of Jefferson, who annexed Louis- iana, and of Jackson, who ennexed Texas. If party line\' trammeled him on a question like this he would break them asunder, as he had don...before. There should be no partisanship In Americanism. \Mr. Speaker,\ Mr. Sickles concluded, \my span of life has not much longer to run, yet I hope to live to see the star of the republic of the Pacific add its tropical splendor to the star of the western hemisphere.\ (Loud applause on the republican side.) Mr. McCreary4oned the debate and In the courseof remarks dented that Cleveland had ever indorsed a proposi- tion for the construction of a Hawaiian cable by the government. He had mere- ly favored the incorporation of a com- pany to lay such a cable. The vote was then taken on Mr. HItt's motion that the house agree to the senate amendments. The motion was lost, 155 to 152. The republicans and populists voted for the building of the cable and the democrats mostly against it - Without division the house non -con- curred In the amendment and a fur- ther conference was ordered NEWS OF A FIGHT WITH NATIVES itrirish N•vel officer Writes of a Severe Rattle In Gniens• Plymouth, England, Feb. 24 - The wife of a naval officer who is a member of the British expedition on Brass riv- er.

IT WOULD PASS ON A VOTE suoday Serest... le Almost Celled.. If the Inesseere he nrought Immediate. l) It. fore Ilex Seuate. - Washington, Feb. ,,.--The democrat- ic steering committee of the senate held a meeting today and decided to rec- ommend to the ?tenant that Senator But- ler 'idiOnt ' d be permitted to move at 3 o'clock tomorrow for consideration of the poling bill; that this bill should be continued as unfinished business until It 0 . e.LOCiR Monday, and if not disposed of by that time it should give way to other business. The program is con- strued into a Sunday session, and this fact was made the most . of by those senators who oppose the bill. The ad- vocates of the bill did not admit in so many words that their purpose includ- ed a Sunday session, but they confessed that If they should succeed in getting the bill up they would use their utmost endeavors to have it voted upon be- fore the expiration of the time set for its consideration; and as this time would include only about . three hours If Saturday's session and one hour for Monday's session, they would neces- sarily receive very limited time for the WI without either a night or a Sunday siereop. Senator Butler, who is chairman of the interstate commerce committee, said - he felt confident of the success of the bill in cage a vote could be reached and be believed a clear majority would be shown on the vote for copsideration. While Senator Butler would name no figures, Reis understood that other friends of the bill claim that a final vote would show two -third. of the sen- ate In favor of it. Its opponents con- cede that if a vote should be reached. It would pass, but they are determined In the declaration that it shall not reach the point where the test of strength shall be made. INDIAN APPROPRIATION -I AGAIN. The Senate Decides to Not Interfere With Future congresses. Washington, Feb. 22.-1-1ev. Mr. Mil- burn opened the 'Manion of the senate today with a fervid and eloquent prayer extolling the public and private virtues of George Washington, who, he said, showed steadfast devotion to the inter- ests of Ms country, subordinating his private %Oahe, and will to the good of the whole people. Such a noble exam- ple might well enter into the character of every American boy and exalt our pa- triotism, making our national institu- tions a safeguard also of religious and private institutions. The bill was passed donating con- demned cannon to the State Soldiers Home at Ftoseburg, Or. Senator Quay presented a memorial from the Manufacturers' Club of Phil- adelphia strongly urging Mat the cause of financial distress was the assault on the American protective system, and in- dignantly protesting against the course of the president in borrowing money from a foreign syndicate. The memo- rial_elpsed with an earnest appeal to the senators and members to so adjust the tariff duties as to overcome the dis- tress' of the treasury. Senator Gorman secured unanimous consent that undbjected Cases on the calendar should he taken up at the night session next Tuesday. The Indian appropriation bill was then taken up. The pending amend- ment Was that of Senator Pettigrew, that of the 81.104.350 appropriation for Industrial and day schools for Indians 87,150 shall he used for contract schools and that 20 per cent, of the latter shall be used in purchasing such contract schools as may be offered for sale. A vote was taken on the amendment of the appropriation committee, strik- ing out the house provision that the sec- retary of die interior should reduce the expenditures 20 per cent, annually, no that at the end of five years the entire expenditureit for sectarian Indian schools Mall be at an end. The com- mittee amendment was sustained. ayes 41, noes 23. The effect of this was to do away with the house provision for the gradual abandonment of the con- tract schools during the next live years. The Pettigrew amendment was de- feated. With the changes made, the proviso for Indian schools makes a re- duction of 20 per cent, from the expendi- tures last year, hut leaves the future congresses to make such further re- ductions as they nee Mt. Senator Gorman offered an amend- ment for the establishment of United States Courts in Indian territory. He spoke of the barbarous condition of affair, among the live civilized tribes. where an grilled vendetta existed. Senator Berry urged that a territorial form of government wan the hest rem- edy for the evils existing. Train rot, bery, lawlessness of all kinds and the absorption of Indian lands by A few per- sons constituted the main abuses The discussion of the conditions In Indian territory lasted throughout the after- noon. Senator Mills made a point of order against lienate: Morgan',\ amendment, on the ground that It was new leglitia- thin, and, being submitted to the sen•te, the wise declared not In or - tier Ineemtrir Ceti: In r•herge of Ills Tnalfifl . hill, sought to have a time fixed for the final vote. There were objections \If this bill does not pass today, or early torgorrow.\ saki Senator Call, \then some bf the remaining largo ap- propriation bills will certainly MI.\ PETTIGREW'S PROTEST At this point Senator Pettigrew came forward with a most emphatic objec- tion, Is understood,\ maid Senator Pet- tigrew. \that a plan Is on foot to got this bill out of the way •nd then take up the pooling bill at It o'clock tomorrow and sit It out, even over Sunday. Want to say distinctly that the plan will not succeed, and what Is more, the pool- ing bill can not become a law If I can do anything to prevent it, especially as It can not be passed on Sunday.\ Senator Pettigrew made his state- ment with the evident conscientiousness that the senate rules permitted the op- position of one man to be very effective. This and the other objections prevented :Any time being fixed for the completion of the Indian bill. Senator Call was willing to fix it at any time before adjournment, but Sena- tor Chand13:r objected, and then, at 5:25. the senate went into executive session, and 10 minutes later adjourned.

San Franciasco, Feb. 23, -The steamer Gaelic arrived tonight from Yokolianiti and Honolulu, bringing the following advice' to the Associated Press: Honolulu, Feb. 17.-A more contagious fever of rumor never struck this com- munity than that which swept over the town previous to the departure of the Mariposa. The atory was that the gov- ernment had decided' to deport 10 prim- . utters, atnong them being Weldemann, Gregg and Marshall. The presence of Judge Weldentatin on the wharf with a hand satchel and a gutter added cred- ence to the Weidemann part of the story. The government was prepared to carry out its part of the plans, when Minister Willis protested against men convicted of political crimes being put on board of a vessel flying the Ameri- can flag. Furthermore, the recent im• migration laws of the United States would not allow any such men to enter the country. In pursilanc.: with tide ides, Consul - Mille had held the clear- ance pappes of the vessel until Hamm - anus was received that no attempt would be Made to put these men en -hoard. President.--Lole and Ministers King and Smith were on the steamer, and got together in the captain's cabin. .There they were rumored to have come to a decision that they had better 1.•I the matter lay over to some more aus- picious season. When asked regarding the alleged de- parture, Attorney -General Smith said: \I can not see how any such a thing got started. We have not thought of such a thing as deporting any men who have been before the court. I think we have inore use for Gregg and Weldemann here than in the United States! There In no foundation whatever for the ru- mor.\ When Minister Willis wee asked whether he had received any notice of an intended deportation of the prisoner, he replied: \No; I was Informed quite to the contrary. I did not .epter any protest or make any request . to hold the steamer. In fact, I have not yet filed the protest consequent to the deport- ing affair of last Saturday. It is furth eet from my purpose to take any action which would tend to embers.. this gov- ernment. I have the most friendly feel- ings toward the officials. I know they are pressed with many difficult (men- tions, and are using their beet judg- ment In the solution of the problems. Of course, It is my duty to look after the Interests of American citizens, but I most certainly have no intention of making any Unneeetwary trouble for the presentatives of the government in o- oing.\ From all accounts, It was very fortu- nate for the peace of the community that no attempt was made to send the young men out of the country Armed men belonging to the citizens' guard and other bodies were on the wharf to prevent the deportation of either ulregg, Weidemann or Marshall. HUNDREDS OF ARRESTS. The government reused the arrest of Ill . persons since the 6th of January. Of that number IR have been tried be- fore the military .court. Sentences in hut 24 cases have been made public - 23 natives, charged with tree : atm, and V. V. Ashford, charged with misprision of treason. Fifty-five men have been re- leased by the authorities. The military court acquitted two. Three men, Cran- ston. Johnstone and Mueller were de- ported. The following persons haPa been al- lowed their liberty, with the under- standing that they leave the country within a reasonable time. John Radln, Fred Harrison, A. H. Itedward, L. J. Lovey. Arthur White, G. L. Ritman, J. C. White, P. J. Camorinois M. C. Bailey, A. McDowell, J. Carienne. Peed Woun- denhurg and James Brown. The latter have signed an agreement that they Will not return to thin country until granted permission by the government. Several of the men have seen Britiett Commie - teener Have.. lie gave them to under- stand that he would not interfere in their behalf, as they had admitted their guilt when they signed the •greement. Aohford was turned over to the marshal on the 25th inst. HP was tried on a charge of misprision of ;reason and found eullty. He has been sentenced te one year in jail and to pay a fine of 81,000. Twenty-three natives have been nenteimed on a charge of treason The sentences vary from live to 10 years In one case • fine of 85.000 Was Imposed. hut 'vas remitted by President Dole The military court is still sitting. and Its work drags along sInwly.

Marti.] law la still in force. FIGHT TO SAVE RICKARD. A strong fight is Aping made to save the neck of W. II. Rickard. one of the condemned men. He Is a member of the Memortle order. The government is very reticent regarding the date of the executions. Since the overthrow of monarchy the American League has beep a power, but events of the past two weeks have proved that its prestige hits gone. Its president, Timothy Mur- ray, Is now suspected and a watch Is kept on his mover:lento. The different military companies have passed reso- lutions requeating the discharge of all government etnployes whose loyalty can be questioned. It in not thought that their request will receive much at- tention; in that event it Is just ponsible that the men may resign in a bedy. There is much talk of internal dissen- sions which leads the friendo of Princess Kalulani to hope that she will some day be placed on the throne. FAIR TRIAL FOR ALL. • In regard to the dispatch seat by Secretary Gresham to Minister Willis about demanding a delay of execution, Attorney General Smith stated thin morning that the government had no intention of executing the condemned men until the mitttstry court reIncludett its labors and every fact bearing 110 the case was brought out. Mn. Smith would not state what the attitude of this gov- ernment would be In case Willis made a demand. He IntimaLed.-hoWAMS' t that nothing would be done until the United States government Was in poi - session of the facts in each ease. The attorney general stated that the queeo has been found guilty, but her sentence was not approved as yet by the presi- dent. According to Mr. Smith, she will not be sent out of the country. The latest sentence approved of by President Dele Is that of John Bottle.... lie Is given five years and lined $5,000 on a charge of misprision ut treaeon.
