“NO RBtLS” iN SOUTH, j
Senate Obliterates “War of Rebellion 0 J
and Substitutes the Words “Civil
War" in Pension Measure.
A Washington dispatch says: After
two hours’ debate tiie senate Friday
passed Senator McCumber’s service
pension bill without division, after
amending it at Senator Carmack s
instance so as to make it apply to
survivors of the Mexican war as well
as those of the civil war and so as
to prohibit pension attorneys from re
ceiving fees for securing pensions un
de-r the bill.
The words in the bill “war of the
rebellion,” were changed to “civil
war,” after some discussion as to what
the war of ISGI to 18G5 realv was.
Messrs. Money, Bacon and Patter
son contended that it was “war be
tween the states,” while Mr. Teller
said it was either a civil war or a
rebellion and he saw no opprobrium in
the word “rebel.”
The bill grants a pension of $l2 to
survivors of the civil and Mexican
wars who have reached the age of
62; $l5 to those who are 70 years
of age and $2O to unose who are 75
Senator McCumber estimates that
if the bill becomes a law it will in
crease the pension expenditures of the
country to about $6,000,000 annually,
while the commissioner of pensions
thinks that the increase will be be
tween $lO,OOO and $15,000 a year.
In his remarks Senator Bacon rose
and entered an earnest objection to
the use of the term “war of the re
bellion,” and insisted that the proper
designation should be “the civil war,’’
and that this title should be used
whenever that struggle was referred
to in official papers.
In defense or his contention, Sena
tor Bacon, having the undivided at
tention of the senate, proceeded with
a legal explanation of the reasons
for his stand, and a careful state
ment of the legal and constitutional
phases of the question. He declared:
“I say that the term ‘rebellion’ is
not a proper designation. A rebellion
is resistance to an acknowledged au
thority. It was a much greater war
than a ‘war of rebellion.’ It was a
great war between the people of the
foremost nation now and among the
foremost nations then of the earth
on a great question about which they
had been divided for nearly a hundred
years, in which there was no resist
ance to a recognized authority, but
in which there was an insistent and a
great struggle over the question as
to what was the intention of the gov
ernment from its foundation.
“It was a war in support ot a claim
of legal right, claimed on the one
side and disputed on the other. It
was a war, not a rebellious faction,
but one between two great peoples
who were made one indivisible by
the result of that war. The senator
from Colorado says that every one
who was a confederate soldier should
acquiesce in it, and be wiling to abide
by the designation of the ‘war of rc
belion,’ and of himself as a rebel. I
was a very humble soldier in that war.
a confederate soldier, and I object
to it, because it is not correct, and,
not being correct, it is more or less
offensive” concluded Senator Bacon.
In reply, to the senator from Colo
rado, Mr. Teller, who called attention
to the use of the word "rebellion,”
in the fourteenth amendment to the
constitution, Senator Bacon said:
“It proves nothing, except that in
the heat and tempest and flame of
ill feeling, I started to say hate,which
was imediatelv consequent upon the
war. terms were used both north and
south, which were designed to be of
fensive and odious. The term ‘rebel
lion.’ is odious, and what is odious,
must be in a degree offensive.”

Heart and Nerves Fail on Coffee.
A resident of a great. Western
State puts the case regarding stimu
lants with a comprehensive brevity
that is admirable. He says;
"I am 56 years old and have had
considerable experience with stimu
lants. They are all alike —a mortgage
on reserved energy at ruinous inter
est. As the whiD stimulates but does
not strengthen the horse, so do stim
ulants act upon the human system.
Feeling this way, I gave up coffee
and all other stimulants and began
the use of Postum Food coffee some
•months ago. The beneficial results
have been apparent from the first.
The rheumatism that I used to suffer
from has left me. I sleep sounder,
my nerves are steadier and my brain
clearer. And I bear testimony also
to the food value of Postum—some
thing that is lacking in coffee.” Name

President Roosevelt Monday sent
to congress a special message re

which gives the additional vidence
collected by Assistant Attorney Gen

were sent to Texas by the president
to investigate the affair.
The report submitted with his mes

and Fort Brown, a bandoleer, 23
empty shells, seven ball cartridges,
picked up in the streets a few hours
after the shooting; three steel jacket
ed bullets and some scraps of the
casings of other bullets picked out
of the houses into which they had
The president declares that the evi
dence is positive that the outrage of
August was committed by some of
the colored troops that have been
dismissed and that some or all of
the individuals of the three compa
nies the twenty-fifth infantry had
knowledge of the deed and have
shielded the guilty ones.
The negro troops are referred to by
the president in his message as “mid
night assassins,” and he declares that
very few, if any, of the soldiers dis
missed “without hcuor” could have
been ignorant of what occurred.
That part of the order which bars
the soldier from all civil employment
under the government is revoked by
the president. This clause, the pres
ident says, was lacking validity. The
discharged troopers, however, will
be forever barred from enlisting in
the army or navy and as to this the

amounts to a great deal, “for the
president tells us it is conclusive.”
“But it does not remove the ob

been trying to contend for, and I hope
I will be successful, is to secure a

could be given of the ir.competency
of the negro to grapple with great
questions. His illustration was the
criticism of the president by a negro
mass meeting at Boston. A negro, he
said, held the most lucrative federal
office in Florida, as collector of in
ternal revenue; the collector of cus

and the collector of internal revenue
of the state of Georgia was a negro,

in this country, allow themselves to
