might think was far from the import

was for me to emphasize what I had
said to the contrary."
Foraker Replies to Bacon.
Replying to Mr. Bacon’s argument.
Mr. Foraker reviewed the history of
the Brownsville controversy to the j
Senate to show the question of the
President’s power hud been raised by I
the message the President had sent to I
the Senate on December 17. last. Mr.
Koraker maintained that from the be
ginning all he had contended for w^s
'he facts. I
Mr Bacon said 1n reply that while
he whb far from being an advocate of
ihe President, ho believed the language
proposed in the Koraker resolution
was an Injustice to the President. Mr.
Baron wanted an opportunity to vote
directly on the question whether the
President had the legal power to dis
charge the negro troops and on the
question of tabling the resolution. He
spoke of the affray at Brownsville as
"an unspeakable outrage."
A roll call was taken on Mr. Pnrak-
er's motion to lay the Mallory substi
tute on the table. This motion pre
vailed—■43' to 22. Messrs. McCumber,
Warner and LaKollette voted with the
Democrats and Messrs. Teller and Till
man with the Republicans.
Stons Reviews Tillman's “Humor.”
Mr. Stone took occasion to review
Senator Tillman's "attempt at humor”
yesterday. He said he had taken no
offense at the reference to himself in
Mr. Tillman's characterization of the
Senate as :t ‘"minstrel troupe" and was
sorry the Senator from Tennessee (Mr.
Carmack) and the Senate had elimi
nated It from the Record. He was op
posed to having the Record "a tomb
fbr platitudes" and he hoped Senator
Tl'Jmsn would reconsider his resolu
tion "not to do so again.’’ hut would
“soften his tone." and make many fu
Senator Culberson proposed a substi
tute which provided for no investiga
tion, but simply resolved that the
President was authorized by law and
Justified by the facts in dismissing the
negro troupe. Explaining the need for
the resolution, he said the whole ques
tion waa now In the hands of Senators
who opposed or denied the authority or
right of the position of the President.
The Culberson substitute was tabled
bv a vote of 46 to 19.
A vote on the Koraker resolution was
then token and without a roll call the
resolution was declared adopted. The
resolution was referred to the com
mittee to audit and control the con
tingent expenses of the Senate In order
to secure authority for the expenditures
of the inquiry, whereupon Mr. Kean,
chairman of that committee, imme
diately announced he had been author

report was agreed to. This action con-

Hon. Martin V. Calvin. Augusta, Ga.—
My Dear Sir: I want to thank you
most heartily for your very full de
scription of the plan of the agricultural
schools which Georgia has just adopt
ed. It seems to me that this is a most
significant movement. I feel certain
that Georgia has taken a step of the
greatest possible significance for agri
cultural education. Of course, I am
not familiar with the precise agricul
tural conditions in Georgia, but I feel
that the inauguration of these schools,
provided they are made genuinely ag
ricultural, must be of incalculable
value.. I hope you will succeed in so
organizing the schools that the atmos
phere in them will forever be an agri
cultural atmosphere. I hope they will
be thoroughly permeated with the. ag
ricultural idea. I hope also that you
will succeed' in" your insistence that
they shall not attempt to become col
leges. but shall remain substantially
schools of agriculture. If you can do
