In Banquet Speech Kansan Fires

GUEST NEW YORK LOTUS CLUB
Goes Into Details Regarding the Cause
of Hostilities In the Philip,
Brigadier General Frederick Fun
ston' was the guest of honor at a din
ner given Saturday night at the Lotus
Club in New York City. More than
300 members of the club were present.
General Funston made a speech, in
which he said:
“When Manila was surrendered to
Dewey and Merritt some thousands of
Spaniards were in the city. In the
eyes of the world these people looked
to us for protection, and to have
turned them over to the uncontrolla
ble mob known as ‘Aguinaldo’s army’
would have been the blackest page of
American history; one that a thous
and years of repentance and restitu
tion would not have satisfied.
General Funston then told in min
ute detail of the instances that led
to war fare between the American ar
my and the insurgents, and during the
narrative told of the shooting of sev
eral sentries by Filippino scouts who
had passed the lines. He said that on
the opening of the battle between the
army and the insurgents, Major Met
calf, of the First Nebraska regiment,
had come to his quarters, and said:
“The dance has begun.”
“What dance?” I asked, and Ma
jor Metcalf replied: “Go out and hear
it,” and I went out and heard the put
tering of rifle balls, and that was the
beginning of the war over there.”
General Funston then said:
“All sorts of men get into the army.
There are good, bad and indifferent,
but I believe that 95 per nect. of the
American soldiers are a brave and
humane lot of men. The other 5 per
cent, who have been writing letters
to newspapers, have ornamented the
inside of a grog house for a longer
time than they have distinguished
themselves in the field.”
“All of those men who have fallen
since December, 1900, have been the
victime of a lot of misinformed and
misguided people here in the United
States. It is perfectly proyer for us
to have all sorts of opinions as to what
we should do with the Philippine is
lands, but for heaven’s sake, let us
keep them to ourselves until every
square inch of territory recognizes the"
sovereignty of the United States.”
General Funston then gave many
examples to show that the Pilipino
leaders were not patriots. He men
tioned the slaying of Antonio Luna,
who was ordered slain by Aguinaldo.
General Funston said that Aguinaldo
had told him in regard to Luna’s
“I had him killed simply because
he would have been dictator instead
“Would you imagine George Wash
ington doing anything like that?”
asked General Funston.
The general said there was not one
of the so-called Filipino patriot who
could not be convicted of murder if
he was tried by a jury. He declared
that there had never been a war in the
world’s history where the soldiers had
shown such humanity as had the
American troops in the Philippine is
Traitors in America.
He then told of twenty-four Ameri
can soldiers who had joined the Fil
ipinos and who were afterward capt
ured and executed as traitors, and
“There are many men in the United
States who did more with their mouths
ana minds to aid the insurgents than
did these poor men with their Krag
Jorgensen rifles. I would ratner see
those men hanged for treason than
to see one cf the soldiers dead on the
field of battle.”
The general then declared that the
Filipinos could not be classed with the
Cubans, and he said that if the United
States could now leave the Philippine
islands there would be half a dozen
different kinds of civil wars there,
and that the world would hold the
United States responsible fsr them.
The general said he talked with Ag
uinaldo on their way back to Manila
on the Vicksburg, and that Aguinaldo
told him that neither Dewey nor any
one else had promised him anything,
but that he and his people had faith
in the Americans.

mill, of Augusta, Ga., have demanded

CABINET MEMBERS MUZZLED.
President’s Order* Forbidding Them
to Give Out News to Reporters
A Washington special says: The
announcement from the white house
that hereafter all news concerning
cabinet meetings must be given out
by the secretary to the president and
that members of the cabinet must not
discuss cabinet meetings with repre
sentatives of the press is generally re
garded as the hardelst slam that any
president has ever given the members
of his cabinet.
It is, in effect, notice to members of
the cabinet that the president does not
consider them the possessors of judg
ment or discretion. The heads of the
different executive departments do not
take at-all kindly to this reflection
upon them, especially as their friends
in the senate and house are inclined
to poke fun at them concerning the po
sition in which they have been placed.
No previous president has ever gone
to these lengths. There have been
times when, before cabinet meetings
broke up, there would be a general
agreement that certain matters should
not be discussed with outsiders, but
even Mr. Cleveland, who was criticised
for keeping members of his cabinet in
the background and dominating them,
never went to to the length of forbid
ding them to discuss such cabinet mat
ters as in their judgment they saw fit.
President McKinley had the happy
faculty of impressing all those who
conferred with him with the feeling
that he reposed absolute confidence in
them, and on important matters this
confidence was not misplaced, either
in the case of members of the cabinet
or of others.
There are one or two members of
the present cabinet who seeme to be
lieve that the newspapers of the coun
try have no right whatsoever to know
what is going on. These are men who
have never before figured in public
life and whose heads have suffered de
cided enlargement since their selection
to high place in this administraton.
These men are understood to indorse
the mystery which the president seeks
to throw around his conferences with
his official advisers. But the men of
widest political experience in the cab
inet and out of it construe this action
of the president as not only an unpoli
tic move, but one which is a distinct
reflection upon the members of the
president’s official household who are
told, in effect, that they are mere de
partment chiefs whose judgment
not be relied upon.
ROOSEVELT STEALS MARCH.
Outwits Congress by Securing Import
ant Section in Census Bill.
A Washington dispatch says: Pres
ident Roosevelt has outwitted Con
gress. Both house and senate
passed the bill for a permanent cen
sus bureau with the understanding
that all of the twent-three hundred
clerks now in the bereau should, upon
the bill becoming a law, be placed in
the classified service.
Rut President Roosevelt would not
have it that way. He sent for Sena
tor Quarles and Representative Hop
kins, members of the conference com
mittee, and directed them to put a sec
tion in the bill providing that only
such clerks as are in the census office
July 1st shall go into the classified ser
vice without examination.
The clause was inserted. Then Hop
kins and Quarles reported back to the
house and senate that the conference
committee had agreed upon the bill
practically as it had been adopted.
Thereupon it was passed without fur
ther question. It was not the orig
inal bill, but a gold brick.
Under the Roosevelt clause, Direct
or Merriam will fire all clerks in the
bureau before July first, except the
eight hundred he needs for the perma
nent bureau. He is a republican and
will of course, pick out eight hundred
republicans for retention.
Between now and July first, fifteen
hundred democrats and republicans
will get the axe. Congress knows to
day the trick has been turned and
there is general dismay.

BILL ARP’S LETTER
Bartow Philosopher Again Re
verts to Ancient Mythology.
MARCH IS A MUCH DESPISED MONTH
With lt« Bluster and Diaagreeablenesa
It Has no Friends—How the
Month Got Its Name.
March has no friends. It is a disa
greeable, uncertain, blustering month.
It was named for Mars, the god of
War, who was the son of Jupiter, and
was always hunting around for a
fight. He was believed to be the
father of Romulus, the founder of the
Roman Empire, and hence was held in
great reverence by the Romans-. March
was named for him. Those old
greeks and Romans had no weeks—
nor days of the week—no Sundays or
Mondays or any other day, but they
divided time by Calends and Ides. The
Calends were the first days of the
month And the Ides were the fifteenth.
All the intermediate days were des
ignated by these, for instance, the
third day after the Calends of May,
of the fifth day before the Ides of
March. 'The Roman senate always
began Its sessions on the Ides of the
month, except that after Julius Cae
sar was murdered the annlversity of
that day, the Ides of March, was ob
served as a sacred day. I want the
young people to know and remember
that we got our months from Roman
mythology, and the days of our weeks
from the Scandinavian mythology.
Now listen to a part of this wonderful
story, for it is classic and more fas
cinating than the Arabian Nights.
Two thousand years ago it was the
faith and religion of millions of peo
ple. Jupiter was the god of the Greeks
and the Romans, and Woden was the
god of the Norsemen, and each had a
son who was the god of war. There
vMs the son of Woden. Wednesday
was named for Woden, and it was
originally Woden’s day. Thursday
was named for Thor, and Friday for
his mother. Each of these mytholo
gies had a hades or infernal region
for bad people and evil spirits. Pluto
presided over the one, and a woman
named Hela over the other. That is
where the word Hell comes from. It
seems an awful thing to put hell in
charge of a woman, but they said that
no man was as bad as a bad woman.
Her father was named Loki, and she
had two brothers. One was a serpent
so big and long that it wrapped around
the world and swallowed its own tail.
The other was a wolf so strong that
he broke the strongest chains just like
they were cobwebs. Then Woden got
the mountain spirits to make another
chain, and they made it of six things:
The noise of a cat walking, the beard
of a woman, the roots of stones, the
breath of fishes, the smiles of bears
and the spittle of birds. When the
chain was finished it was so small and
smooth and soft as a silken string, but
no power on earth could break it. And
so they chained him and killed him.
But listen what kind of a home Miss
Hela had. Hunger was her dining ta
ble. Starvation was her knife. De
lay was her man servant—Sloth her
maid servant. A precipice was her
doorstep. Care her bed, and Anguish
the curtains to her bed chamber.
wonder she was cruel and always
wore a stern, unhappy and
This is just a sample of their myth
ology. It fills up several books. Now,
where in the world did that people get
all those wonderful stories. Away
back in the ages they must have had
poets more imaginative than Homer.
Some of our learned men say they got
the foundation of many of them from
the Bible. For the story goes that
away back in the ages the people got
so bad that Jupiter got dreadful mad
with them and resolved to destroy
them. So he summoned all the gods
to come to him, and they came from all
parts of the heavens, traveling on the
milky way, which is the street of the
gods, and after taking counsel together
the determined to destroy all mankind
and start with a new pair. So Jupiter
was about to launch a red hot thunder
bolt at the earth and burn it up, but
one of the gods told him that he had
better not, for he might buri< up
heaven, too. So he concluded to use
water instead of fire, and then came
the flood which drowned every human
being except Deucalion and his wife,
who were good people. They escaped
to the top of a mountain called Parnas
BUS and were saved, This is- very
much like the Bible story of the flood
and of Noah and Mount Ararat. And
just so they got Hercules from Samp
son, and Vulcan and Apollo from Ju
bal and Jubal Cain, and the Dragon
from the serpent that tempted Eve,
and the giants who tried to scale the
walls of heaven from Nimrod arid his
tower. Every great heathen god had
a favorite son just as our Christian
God has a Son. There is something
sublime and comforting in even be
lieving or imagining that a great and
good being is somewhere in the heav
ens overruling the earth and its peo
pie, prospering the good and punish
ing the evil. The fact that this all
powerful being is invisible makes His
existence the more impressive. Ju
piter had a bountiful palace of gold
and silver at Valhalla, and it could
only be reached by walking on a rain
bow. And we pray to our God, saying:
“Oh, Thou who dwellest in the heav
ens, ” and not in the temples made by
hands. History gives no account of
any people who did not put their trust
in some God, and this proves our con
fession of weakness and our need of
strength from some supernatural di
vinity. The more cultured and en
lightened we become the more con
scious we are of our weakness. Chil
dren depend absolutely upon their pa
rents until afar up in their teens. They
do not need any other God, but by and
by the parents pass away or fail to
supply their increasing wants and
then comes that feeling of helplessness
and the want of a protector. Reflec
tion comes with age, and the more
reflective a man becomes and the more
intelligent from study and culture, the
more he must realize his ignorance
and dependence. Therefore, I cannot
understand how such a cultured gentle
man as Ingersoll could be so irreverent
so careless and prayerless about his
own existence, for he cannot tell by
what power he raised his hand or
closes his eyes when he wills to do
so. He says he would have planned
many things very different. He would
have given a man wings and the power
to fly. He would have made health
catching instead of disease. He would
have made infants colic proof, and
they should have been as lively when
born as little chicks when they come
out of the shell, and the old men
should always be calm and serene.
In fact, he would have made everybody
happy during life and every death a
painless one. He ought to have gone
a little farther and abolished death
and then created more worlds for the
never-dying people to live in. But
we are here and we have to submit
to things as we find them, and as Gov
ernor Oates said, “Mr. Ingersoll, what
are you going to do about it?”
And now I want this month of March
to hurry up and pass away. It is ag
gravating my grippe, and I feel more
like writing “an ode to melancholy.”
It contracts and withers my charity
for my fellow men. I don’t care a cent
for Roosevelt and Tillman, nor Spoon
er, nor the Atlanta depot. But as the
old Persian prophet said, “Even this
shall pass away.” Fifty-three years
ago today my wife and I were married,
but on our account the weather was
as lovely as a Lapland night. I was
one of ten children—my wife was one
of ten, and we have ten, and they have
twenty, and no great calamnity or af
fliction hath befallen us, thanks to the
good Lord for His mercies.—Bill Arp,

TURNED DOWN BY COMMISSION
Barred By Fact That Officer* and Sea
men Were Injured In Line of
Duty—One Commissioner Files
Thursday the Spanish claims com
mission at Washington handed down
a decision against the claimants for
death and injuries by officers and sear
men in the wreck of the battle ship
Maine in Havana harbor. The com
mission holds that:
“Individual claims of citizens of one
nation may arise against the govern
ment of another nation for redress of
injuries to persons or property which
such citizens may have sustained from
such government, or any of its agents.
But such Individual claims do not
arise in favor of the officers and sea
.men of a ship of war, who receive, in
the line of duty, injuries to their per
son for which a foreign government
is responsible. The claim against the
foreign government is wholly national,
and all injuries tc such officers and
seamen are merged in the national in
jury and can look only to their own
government for such remuneration as
it may choose to give them.
“A seaman Injured by the explosion
which destroyed the battle ship Mb ne
in the harbor of Havana, Cuba, cn
February 15, 1898, had no individual
claim against Spain, even If that gov
ernment was responsible to the United
States for the explosion, and therefore
such a seaman is not entitled to an
award in his favor from the Spanish
treaty claims commission, organized
by the act of congress of March 2,
1901, to adjudicate the individual
claims of citizens of the United States
against Spain, which the United States
released to Spain, and agreed to pay
by the treaty of peace of December
The claims so far filed with the com
mission, which will be affected by this
decision, amount to about $2,500,000,
which probably would have been in
creased to $5,000,000 had the decision
been favorable to the claimants.
Commissioner Chambers filed a dis
senting opinion. He said that if the
steamer, City of Washington, lying
near the Maine at Havana, had been
blown up and its sailors killed, “this
commission would present the anomal
ous aspect of investigating for the pur
pose of adjudicating the claims of all
these private citizens who were in
jured or killed upon the meiyhant ship
while the claims of the equally unfor
tunate sailor citizens whose injuries
were received or whose lives were
sacrificed while in the line of duty, at
the same time on the battle' ship
Maine, are denied a hearing. To ray
mind no principle of law, divine or
human, international or municipal,
recognizes or could justify such an in
