London, Deo. G. Mr. Dnyard,
tho United States EmbnBsndor,
has writton to tho Daily Tologt aph,
under dnto o Saturday, confirm
ing the report cabled to tho Asso
ciated Pree8 on Saturday, that he
would decline the proffered
Curistmns gift intended as a com-
Eliment to him, and in honor of
i'b effort to bring about an era of
good fooling between tho United
ytates and Great Britain. Uo has
diked tho proprietors of tho paper
not to proceed to carry out their
"kind and generous propnnition"
along tho lines planned. Ho then
proceeded to describe tho manuer
in which ho first learned of tho
proposal Thursday afternoon, by
reading the announcement in the
columns of tho Tolpgrnph. Ho
Bays that ho was naturally deoply
touched and gratified still moro
when tho following issue of the
paper contained so many bpon
taneous tributes of respect and
kiud feeling from men of all
classes, occupations and varying
degrees of fortuuo.
Continuing, ho 6ays: "A low
hours of rellection hero brought
me to tho sobor judpuient that
holding my presout olhVo, invest
ed with its disutcthnt and duties,
I should bciupulonsly respect
aud obey the spirit as well
as the letter of my country's
law, written and unwritten, which
inhibits any ono holding an
office of trust or profit under the
Uuited States of America from
accepting, 'without tlio consent of
Congress, any present from any
king, prince or government.' Tho
reasons for this inhibition apply
with spooial Biguificimeo to the
repioaontatives of tho Governmint
Mr. Bayaid continues his com
ment, remarking that Itopubliean
foinis of government roquiro
strict and delicato obedience to
such principles, Bo'that not even
tho Binoll of binoko can lurk in
tho folds of official garments.
"Tho ermine of thejudgo," Fays
Mr. Bayard, "should not bo inoVn
stainless than tho robe of tho law
giver, nnr that of tho legislator
than of tho executive oilicer. Tho
patriotic Biid admirable intent of
your influential journal has been
surely accomplished, for it Iiiih
evoked such expressions of wide
spread sympathy and approval an
Mike tho broath of tho ocean will
fill tho 6ails of two great ships of
state astlioy are borne onwaid
by the irresistibla currents of our
common civilization.' "
Embassador Bayard concludes
with an expression of silicon) gra
titude, and says that "whilo I live
I will not ceaso to thank tho poc
ple of these ielauds for tho whole
hearted and unstinted welcome
and warm hospitality showered
upon mo and mine. 1 am suro I
sorvo both countries best when I
docido, (is Embassador, not to re
ceive tho valuable and most do
lightful prosent proposed."
In an editorial tho Telegraph
announces that tho donations will
bo returned, and repudiates tho
charges of "meiiuuess and pro
sumption," but no regrets for tho
action taken aro exprcssod, sinco
such prompt sympathy through
out England and America hus
been produced, as evidenced by
tho cablegrams received from
Frederick It. Coudort, E. L. God
kin, ox-Governor Flowor, Bishop
Potter, Prcsidont Eliot of Har
vard University and others.
In conclusion tho Telegraph
suys editorially: "If tho effort

Bubspcton 'I of boction 87, Judi

upon Circuit Judges at Chambers
power to determine who aro tho
heirs to real estate.
The words, "to dotormiue the
heirs at law of deceased persona
aud to dooreo the distribution of
intestate estatee,"aro broad enough
to cover that power, the Judge
says; tho Legislature intended to
gruut it. Ho continues: "In my
opinion it is unconstitutional.
Artido 7 of tho Constitution of
1887 coutains the provision that
'in all cases iu which tho right of
trial by jury has been heretofore
used, it shall bo held inviolable
forever, except in ttctious of debt
or assumpsit in which tho amount
claimed is less than,' etc., and this
is also found iu substantially tho
