Comment on the Findings of the!
THE EXCUSE OF JURY-BRIBING- DEP
RECATED AT WASHINGTON.
Ota the "Wliole, However, It Is Believed
That the AflTalr Will Have a Whole
some EfTect Upon Turbulent For
eigners Residing in This Country—
Special to the Record-Union.
Washington, May 6.—The report of
the Now Orleans Grand Jury upon the
killing ot the Italians was the fruitful
theme for discussion among the people at
the Department of State to-day. It may
lie said the finding of the Grand Jury ex
citod no surprise, for some such conclu
sion in the case was expected. Tho at
tempt to palliate the infraction of the law
by offsetting alleged attempts at jury
lixing is deprecated by the legal minds of
the department. But there is a well
known opinion on tho whole outcome of
the ease that it will be beneficial in its
effects upon tho turbulent foreign ele
ments in tho United States, inasmuch as
It will make clear to them the fact that
they cannot rely upon treaties to escape
responsibilities to a great Republic for
their unlawful acts.
The report of the Grand Jury will, it is
expected, reach Secretary Blame in the
course of time, and figure in tlie official
correspondence between the United States
and Italy. There is reason to believe in
Home of the details it differs trom the re-
I mrt made to the Department of Justice
>y District Attorney Grant, and notably
in the matter of the nationality of the
victims. The Grand Jury's report found
eight of them naturalized American citi
zens, and that one had declared his inten
tion to become naturalized. District At
torney ('rant, it is believed, found one of
the victims of Italian nationality, but
who was an escaped convict, and that an
other's nationality was so doubtful as to
make it unsafe to hazard an opinion. So,
at any rate, the Italian complaint will be
narrowed down to at least two persons.
Although tlie United States has no
naturalization treaty with Italy, the last
named nation im ariably, through comity,
has recognized our naturalized citizens as
free firom amenability to their native
Government. When the case of these
two victims is considered, the question i
will immediately arise, Were the treaty
stipulations with Italy broken? This
question is likely to figure in the corre
spondence between the two Governments,
as .soon as the Italian Government is
ready to fall reasonably into the usual
diplomatic method of treating the sub
ject respecting which they took issue
w it'll another nation, and unless it ap
pears clearly that the treaty has been
violated, tho Italian case falls to the
ground, and the leading diplomatic
minds uf the State Department maintain
this fact cannot be made to appear. In
Secivtary Blame's absence, there has been
no forward move in the correspondence.
It is learned that Porter, our Minister
at Dome, had applied to the Department
of State for leave of absence before the
New Orleans affair happened, lie has
been constantly on duty since March,
1889. Moreover, tlie sickly season is ap
proaching in Home, so it is entirely prob
able his request will be granted, as in

Attorney-General Miller said he had
read the report of the Grand Jury, but
declined absolutely to express any opin
ion in regard to it or to discuss it in any
of its l\ atures.
Seen tary Poster, when asked his opin
ion on the report, said he really had not
_ad thn time to read it. and therefore was
not in a position to express an opinion
regard ing it.

It is to be deplored that any combination
of events in America should render it

exists in New Orleans, and the slaying of
Hennessy's assassins was not only justi
fiable, but was the only means of redress

Highest of all in Leavening Power.—U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 188$,
MRS. HOFFMAN AGAIN.
She Lectures on "Dykes," Liquor and
Tho Expected Reference to Sacra
mento Affairs Proves to He
Mrs. Clara V. Hoffman addressed a
very large audience at tho Congregational
Church last evening, on temperance.
The meeting opened with prayer by Rev.
Mr. Stevenson. Her text was the story of
the dykes of Holland. The little kingdom
was subjected to disastrous inundations
from the German Ocean. After the
English Channel was cleared of rocks
the Atlantic Influenced the trespasses of
tho waters upon the lowlands, the hol
low lands from which the name Holland
comes. When the sea was swept by
tempests the waters rushed iv and de
vastated fields, undermined houses and
sucked to their depths precious lives.
The people hud used many devices to
avoid these ills, but none were effective.
At last they decided to build embank -
ments or dykes along the whole line of
Ihe coast where the land was low. Then
arose lour classes ol' objectors to tlie
enormous expense and hureulean under
taking that was to require years of Labor
and vast outlay : 1. Those who were such
practical people that everything must be
demonstrated in advance ot* experiment.
Theso said it is not practicable; "you
cannot build against the ocean; so we are
opposed to the scheme, but we have no
other remedy to propose." 2. Those who
lived on high lands, remote from tho sea.
The waters never harmed them, so they
would not apx>rove the plan. 3. A class
of good people—so good are these that
sometimes they are good for nothing—
they did not propose to fight nature or
meddle with tlie ocean. It was God's
oci an, he held it iv his hand and stayed
its waves; it would he impious to inter
fere. 1. 'fhe wreckers, whose business
depended upon the ravages of tiie ocean.
They justified themselves by saying that
if they did not engage in the business
somebody else would.
But the people of Holland who suffered
by the ocean went to work and they won,
and to-day 1,500 miles ol* dykes keep out
the waves. They laid the foundations
d( ' p and broad, and built up strong and
firm. Against the superstruetre they
built a wanting wall, upon which the
ocean tempests beat in vain. But as
eternal vigilance is the price of security
as well as liberty, they watch the dykes
when the storms rage, and even teach the
boys and girls in all the land that if ever
they see so much as a little trickling
thread of water coming through a wall
to drop all else and run with utmost
speed and notify the nearest authority.
The application of this recital was. with
mu<h elaboration and earnest eloquence,
as follows: The ocean is the world of in
tempetsnoe, the traffic in liquor and all
its concomitant ills, beating against tlie
social structure and devastating fair
homes, sweeping away heruts and souls,
wrecking hopes and swallowing up for
tunes, manhood and womanhood, inno
cent children and babes, visiting disaster,
cost and all manner of evil upon com
munities. The objectors to interference
by prohibition are, lirst, those who claim
thru prohibition does not prohibit. She
replied that it does, as much as the law
against murder prevents unlawful kill
ing. She cited tlie experiences of many
communities in delense of her proposi
The next class of objectors are those
who are insensible to the evil of the liquor
traffic, are callous and careless and will not
help against it, who say "let liquor alono
and it will let you alone," which she
denounced as a flagrant untruth. Third,
the high-license people, ''who want to
regulate that which confesses no master
and never has been regulated." She paid
much attention to this branch ofthe sub
ject, and especially to Thomas McCon
neU's speech before the Board of Super
visors, as reported inthe Recobd-Uxion:
but the arguments she advanced are all
subject to effective refutation. Fourth,
the wreckers, those in the traffic, who
say. "Under Government protection we
have invested and spenl large sums, and
now you propose that Government shall
destroy all the work of our hands"—a
plea, she confessed, thai had some
strength, because Government had
weakly done itl the first instance as the
traffickers claim. She devoted consider
able attention to the social evil, and
charged thai "Christian men" do not
make due effort to save youth of both
sexes irom ruin.
[n the course of he-' exposition of the
four divisions of ber discourse she dealt
freely in statistics compiled by Dr.
Moors of San Francisco, an insurance
statistician. Thus, comparing Towa with
California, she quoted these figures: Cali
fornia—Population. 1,-M,OiX"; convicts,
2,067. lowa—Population, 1,906,739: con
victs. tK4. Maine—Population, wo,oo<>;
convicts, 189. Commitments in Ban
Francisco to jail awaiting trial 'not
police prisons), 1.715 persons in 1899; in
all lowa in 1899, 193.
The speaker referred only briefly to
the charge thai was made by a Ventura
editor, whom she denounced as irrespon
sible and worse, concerning remarks
attributed to her about Sacramento and
the private-entrance saloons. She did
did not repeat the charge or recite tho
alleged remarks, but contented herself
with saying that a great pother had been
kicked up about the matter. Subse
quently she said that not half the truth
had been told about the evils ot" intem
perance and prostitution in cities, and
she doubted not that Sacramento could
he included. Sho looked upon Omaha
as the modern Sodom, as to debauchery
of youth, intemperance, and gavo some
startling statistics and statements as to
social evils in that place. She suggested
that Sacramento might in the matter of
some evils be its equal, for she held a
handful of extracts from Sacramento
papers' records of horrible crimes and
great misery and woe in this city due to
tie- triad of evils, "liquor, prostitution
Her argument was that it is neither good
policy, nor in the interest of good gov
ernment to conceal evils afflicting a com
munity. Sho believed the right way is
to speak out boldly and tell the tiutli
concerning all ills in a city, to make no
concealments whatever. "She went ex
tensively in statistics and recital of facts
to show how in tho rural sections and
lesser towns of Missouri, her State, the
saloon influence has been greatly less
ened, and where high license is made ef
fective because tho prohibition or local
option feature there connected with it —
that is the requirement that may bo made
that a majority of taxpayers of the village
or district must sign a petition for the
establishment of a saloon. The courts
had held there that women who pay taxes
are to bo counted among taxpayers, and
so all the women get upon the assessment
roll and thus control.
In conclusion, sbe believed the time
was very near at hand when the "dykes"
would be put up and tbe ocean of the
liquor traffic kept out of tlie homes of the
people and its devastation stayed. Rev.
Mr. Silcox was called upon to announce
a collection in aid of the W, C. T. U. In
doing so, he urged the people to support
the women in their work; it was good
work, he said, and worthy all aid and
comfort. He took occasion to add that
there had been things preached by Mrs.
Hoihnan with which he did not "agree,
but he was not there to make a speech on
that subject. He was content that some
untenable propositions, even some foolish
things should hclproposed in reforms, be
cause it gave Opportunity at the right
time to reply to them and set out tin
truth. But the women were doing a tine
work, and but for them there would pos
sibly be little temperance sentiment kept
alive here, and he therefore begged the
people to render them aid.
After the collection was taken and the
audience dismissed with a benediction by
Key. Mr. Stevenson, Mrs. Hoffman took
Mr. Silcox sharply to task for his re
marks, and thought that ho had not
treated her right by announcing at the
time, and as he did, his non-eoncurrenee
with some things she had advanced—in
fact, those near at hand say tbat the lady
spoke with acerbity, and thought she bad
been very unfairly treated, and said as
much to Mr. Silcox, the incident being
a passage between tho two, into which
hand-shaking and congratulation did not
