DIscusscs the Philippine and
Washington, Jan. 11. ZA climax was
reached today In the debate on the ques-
tion of expansion which is in progress
in the senate. Heretofore all of the
speeches, with the notable exception of
that of Mr. Piatt of Conn., have been
in opposition to what Is presumed to bo
the policy of the administration with re-
spect to the acquirement of the Philip-
Today Mr. Foraker, of Ohio, addressed
the senate in opposition to the Vest
amendment. While much of his speech
was devoted to a constitutional argument
I In support of the right of this country
j as a nation to acquire and govern out-
j lying territory, he gave particular atten-
tion to the utterances that have been
made in contravention of that posllon
especially those of Mr. Vest and Mr
Hoar. Mr. Foraker has a clear, direct and
forceful style of oratory which commands
attention, not only by reason of the rec-
ognised ability of the man, but also by
his impetuosity and power as a speaker.
Mr. Foraker's strong assertion that the
acquisition of the Philippines was tem-
porary In character created a sensation
In the chamber. Ho maintained, however,
that wo have a legal right to hold the
Prior to the speech by Mr. Foraker, a
sharp debate was participated by Mr. Al-
len. of Neb., by some remarks ho made
upon a resolution he had Introduced. Mr.
Hoar, of Mass., and Mr. Gray, of Del.,
wer* drawn into it.
At the conclusion of Mr. FoVaker's
speech, Mr. Allen continued briefly the
debate upon the constitutional question
relating to the acquisition of tho Phil-
ippines. Ho combatted the position tak
en by Mr. Foraker, maintaining that the
United States government could not con-
stitutionally acquire the Philippine Islands
without the ultimate object In view of ad-
mitting them Into the union as a sate.
A 3:10 o'clock, on motion of Mr. Davis,
chairman of the committee on foreign re-
lations, ' the senate went Into executive
THE EXECUTIVE SESSION.
Mr. Allen offered tho following amend-
That any aggressive action by army or
navy on the part of the United States
against the Philippines would be an act
of war unwarranted on the part of the
president and the exercise of constitution-
al powers vested exclusively in congress.
"In submitting this resolution, Mr.
President, said Mr. Allen, "I desire to
make some observations, but will not en-
ter upon a discussion of the mooted ques-
tion of an Imperialistic policy, preserving
that until a later date, when I hope to
present my views quite fully. I am led
to introduce this resolution becavre the
press dispatches indicate that our troop9
are moving upon the people of Ilollo. I
introduce It as a protest against the wag-
ing of wnr by the president and the army
and navy without tho authority of con-
gress. I think It is a fact indisputable
that war cannot be legally waged with-
out the authority of congress through a
formal declaration. Tn my opinion there
can be no doubt that whatever of pos-
rl?htn we may have In the Phil-
ippine Islands, we acquired from Spain."

Mr. Allen then proceeded to discuss the
nations in the Philippines and declared
that the officers of the army and navy
were pressing affairs forward in the is-
lands into a critical state. He was in-
terrupted by Mr. Hoar, who desired to
inkulre "Where do we get th© right to
use force against the people of Hollo. I
would be glad to be honored by the at-
tention of the distinguished senator from
Delaware," (referring to Mr. Gray, one
of the peace commissioners.) "We made
a protocol sometime In August, continued
Mr. Hoar, under which we are still living
Mr. Hoar then read from the protocol
showing that the United Statees would
hold the bay, harbor and city of Manila
until the disposition of the Philippine is-
"<i«* should bo determined. "That clear-
ly Implied," said Mr. Hoar, "that we will
make no advance upon Spain or the Span-
Ish people on the islands until the situa-
tion shall hnve been changed. If now,
we hnve the power to use military force

8ENATOR GRAY REMARKS.
Mr. Gray, at whom the question of Mr.
Hoar seemed to be directed, rose and
"I wish to remark that the question of
the senator from Massachusetts answers
in part the position taken in his remarks
by the senator from Nebraska, (Mr. Al-
After pointing out the reasons why this
was true, in his opinion, Mr. Gray said
that technically we were still at war with
Spain. It was true that we were living
under a truce, but In pursuing the war
the president was simply exercising the
powers that had been conferred upon him
of Me in 30 days." b* th® war F^wer. Ho pointed *ut
that the only question that could arise
would be as to whether we were, in mak-
ing war upon the Filipinos, violating the
protocol, and if there were such violation
it would be a matter between the United
States and Spain without referring to
Mr. Hoar contended that it was a breach
of faith to attack Spain at Ilollo and bad
policy to attack Agulnaldo.
Mr. Allen replied to Mr. Gray, assert-
ing that Spain had no jurisdiction In the
Philippines and that Aguinaldo's govern-
ment was the only government there. His
government was both a de facto and a
degur government and It had maintained
itself for several* years. Therefore the
United States did not succeed to Spain's
title to the Islands.

Washington, Jan. 11.—Major General
Leonard Wood, the military commandant
of Santiago, arrived in Washington last
night. He breakfasted with Secretary Al-
ger this morning and then repaired to the
White House for a consultation with the
president respecting internal conditions in
Cuba. The war department has been de-
laying final action upon tho various fi-
nancial problems connected with the cus-
toms service at Santiago and at othei
Cuban ports until General Woods arrived
regarding him as well qualified by h^
prolonged stay in charge of affairs In
Santiago province, to afford sound advic«
for Its government. Thc general himself
modestly declines lo discuss these matters
publicly. He expects to leave Washing-
ton, returning to Cuba, next Monday. The
situation In Santiago, he said, was thor
oughly satisfactory and no trouble was
to be apprehended there in the near fu-
ture. He took occasion to declare very
earnestly that the stories of friction be-
tween himself and Major General Brooke,
the military commandant of tho island,
were absolutely without foudfcatlon. add-
ing that their relations were of tho most
pleasant character, and as far as he knew
there had been no differences between
re tify Regarding Meat Con-
tr*r<s wlfh the Army
Washington, Jan. 11.—Several represen-
tatives of the Chicago packers who fur-
unshed beef to the army in Cuba and
Porto Rico testified before tho war Inves-
tigation commission today, detailing the
methods for the preservation of meats and
relating the experiences of the packers
In supplying beef to the English, French,
flerman and Japanese armies. All of tha
witnesses maintained that the beef fur-
nished the army was of the same quality
is that delivered to foreign governments
md supplied to the trade of the world,
and that the quality was uniformly good.
MTSS JENNINGS TE8TIFIE8.
J.'annetto Jennings, a newspaper woman
and a volunteer worker of the Rod Cross,
•vho was at Santiago on the supply ship
Texa9, appeared at tho afternoon session
ind varied tho monotony of tho chemical
Vef Inquiry by telling her experience as
^ nurse nboard the Seneca, which was de-
crlbed on ltf arrival In New York, as
"a horror ship." Witness said that, con-
•rary to the testimony of numerous army
Mirgcons. tho Red Cross did render es-
entlal aid to the hospitals at Slboney
ml elsewhere in Cuba, and that this nld
pad been requested by Dr. La Garde, the
nrgeon In charge of tho beach hospital,
nd gratefully acknowledged nt the time.
Regarding the Seneca, witness was sent
Hnnrd her to ca e for tho sick who were
"turning from Cuhn Tier descrlntion of
The vessel did not dlf.'er essenttnllv from
those of the correspondents and sick who
•rere aboard tho Seneca on tho voyage to
\*ew York. She said that except for a
Ingle ense of beef extract the vessel had
tot a single article for tho use of the
<iek. Tho captain was very attentive and
uiiplled many meats to the sick soldiers
'rom the passengers table, but ho protest-
1 before starting that the vessel had
pot been cleaned and was In no condition
♦o receive sick or convalescents and that
die had no supplies nor even eating uten-
sils for the sick aboard.
Witness, seeing this condition, had hast-
ly collected as many supplies aspossible
from the Texas, but tlmo did not permit
Tho ships passengers, who were foreign
lttaches and cort-espondmts, gavo up
their state rooms to the sick, and with
tho hastily collected supplies the ship
nanaged to get through without losing a
patient. Witness spoke of the lack of sur-«
ileal instruments aboard, and Dr. Con-
nor, who was conducting tho examination,
asked what need there was for surgical
nBtruments. Witness replied that ono
soldier who had nearly suffocated, being
ihoth through the lungs, had 114 ounces
of liquid pumped out of his thorax as
soon as they could get him into Belle-
vue hospital. Others, she said, were al-
•nost as badly in need of surgical atten-
She said further that in spite of the
'act that the Seneca and other transports
unfitted for tho care of sick and wounded
were loaded to their utmost for the home
voyage, the Relief, which was fitted to
•arry 800 sick, came home Immediately af-
terward with only 125 patients aboard her.
DR. W. A. ATWATER.
The next witness was Dr. W. A. Atwa-
ter, a special agent of the agricultural
lepartment, who was called as an expert
hemist of the subject ot "embalmed
Oeef." Tho gist of his testimony, which
iccupled some hours, was that he con-
Idered the ordinary canned beef of com-
merce, both corned and roast, excellent
'ood and of about equal nutritive value.
He also considered refrigerated beef ex-
ellent food and had neyer heard of chem-
cals or other than salt and salt petre
being used in preserving any sort of meat
to he found In the general market.
Paris, Jan. 11.—M. Quesnay De Beaure-
pace, whose resignation of the presidency
of the civil section of the court of cas-
sation, is regarded by impartial observ-
ers as the most dangerous development
of the Dreyfus affair thus far, today fur-
nished the newspapers the moat Inflamma-
tory pronouncement he has yet made. I<
is in the nature of a proclamation and is
entitled "An appeal to the deputies,'
whom he calls upon vehemently to remc"
the Dreyfus case from the hands of tne
criminal chamber of the court.
This appeal is a palpable appeal for the
support of the army. But M. De Beaure-
pace, who shot up like a sky rocket as
the most tremenduous sensation of the
whole Dreyfus controversy, now seems
falling like a rocket, from his pre-emin-
ence as a leader of the antl-Dreyfusards
and the possible hero of a country. The
best observers of public opinion declare
the Impression that has t^en created by
his first remarkable denunciation of the
court of cassation has been succeeded by
a skepticism regarding his motives and
the value of his revelations.
