yr. and Mrs. Constant Lejeune. In whose
temporary home, at No - ■• Washington Square,
jewels slid to be worth $25,000 were seized on
Friday evening by Mr. Theobald, a special agent
of the Treasury Department, were at the Cus
tom House yesterday morning, expecting to
hgV a hearing before Collector Bidwell. J. J.
Crouch, Special Deputy Collector, adjourned
the hearing until to-morrow morning. It was
jild that there had been no appraisal of the
p>iied Jewels, but Mr. Lejeune said their value
ras le«s than $15,000. Frederic R. Coudert, Jr.,
a, counsel for the Lejeunes, paid that the
(tiiure was an outrage.
Mr. Coudert said that Mr. Lejeune consulted
him ■■silt the middle of November as to the
af ed of paying duty on Jewels and household
furniture which the Lejeunes had brought to
this city from their former home ln Brussels.
Sir. Lejeune. the lawyer said, had Intended to
tt]e in this city and become a citizen of the
fnited States, and he told the customs officers
on bis arrival that the property he and his wife
troupht with them had been in their possession
far year* and was intended for their personal
Bf e. and so entered it without payment of duty.
The jewels had been given to Mrs. Lejeune by
jipr husband and other relative?. Mr. Lejeune
gild he had changed his plans about living here.
«r.<l intended to cultivate grapefruit on a plan
tation near Miami. Fla. Therefore he wished
to sell his furniture and some of his wife's
jewels and invest the money in the Florida
plantation. Mr. Coudert said he advised the
I/jeunes that, .is their property had been
brought tn this country free of duty in good
faith thy were at liberty to pell it without
paying duty on it, but he would consult the
Collector of the Port and ascertain his views.
•Therefore," Mr. Coudert continued. "I saw
Colonel Pbelps, deputy collector, and head of
th* law department In the Custom House, and
explained the matter to him fully. He paid I
advised the Lejeunes correctly, but ln order
to avoid any possible difficulty he would write
.letter to me, stating that the Lejeunes had the
ri(;ht to pell their property.
"I therefore staled in writing to Colonel Phelps
what I had told him orally, and received a re
ply from him to the same effect as his oral
ftaterr.f-::: Upon receipt of this letter I in
formed Mr. Lejeune that the matter was settled,
sn3 thai he might make such disposition of his '
own an.) his wife's property as he desired.
"The next thing I hear in regard to the case
was the statement in this morning's papers of
the leisure of the jewels. It seems a fair ques
tion to risk as to whether there is anything
whatever to prevent the sanctity of the home
being Invaded by customs officers to seize prop
erty which the owner has stated to the authori- '
ties he was willing to pay duty upon, and which
he ha? been assured by the authorities in writing
owe.l the government no duty."
Mr Theobald listened with apparent indigna
tion to what the lawyer said, and then told the
newspaper men present that he wished to make
a statement. He said:
In th.- performance of my duty I represent the
Collector, and every act of mine has been performed
undor the instructions of the Collector ol the Port.
When I (to about a case I don't propose to be
Interfered with by attorneys or government officer*.
When this man arrived in New-York on the Kaiser
Wilho'.m on June is he declared absolutely nothing:.
I have proof that Roods were offered for sale, and
that s.c,r>C* wore sold by these people. When it
(oitiff to a question of " integrity and honor and
rharactor, I purpose to show his character, that Is,
if th« case »>ver roaches court.
When Mr Lejeune landed, in response to the
usual questions of the customs officers, he said he
had nothing to declare, except about $S worth o.'
bric-a-brac, which he intended for his own use.
The law says that he must declare all Jewelry in
his Rflepplon, even If it is rot dutiable. Mr. L,oj eU ne
has soid already over 130.000 worth of Jewelry not
including that *ejjc.-,1 last nlifht. and ho has other
property on sale in this city, which I expect to seize
bo.'ore I jr. to bed to-night.
Mr. and Mrs. Lejeune appeared before United
States Commissioner Shields on Thursday and
took out first citizenship papers. They gave
their address as Cocoanut Grove, Miami. Fla.
They were accompanied to the Commissioner's
■sue by Mr Ooudert.

AT THE OPERA.
Two operas wfro perfinned nt tho Mptropolltan
Opora House yesterday "Knust" in tbe afternoon
and "La Travfata " In trip pvonins:. Audiences that
crowded the house beard them, and there was an
abundance of enthusiasm. One of the members of
the company did double duty, owlnp to the In
ability of Sl&nor Srotti to sins the part of th.'
paternal Germont In Verdi's opera. This was
M. Declery, who was the Valentin of the
afternoon and th*- belaced Rentleman with mem
ories of his native province. Tlip prlma donnas
were Mme. Eames, in the afternoon (who repeated
her performance of lasl Saturday), and Mme. Som
brich, who was the Vloletta of tho evening. ML
Alvarez was '.he hero of tbe afternoon, and an ad
mirable hero he made musically and histrionically.
In the evening; Mm. 1 . Sembtich was In beautiful
voice, and, her artistic devotion never flapping, the
effect of her Blnjrlnjr was to stir up an excitement
of enthusiasm. The Saturday evening performances
promise to be amonp the most popular and suc
cessful of the season's performances.
BIG CROWD O.V KROyPRIXZ WILHELM.
More than two hundred first cabin passengers
mere aboard the' big steamer Kronprlna Wllhelm
when she sailed for Kurope yesterday noon. This
Is an unusually large number for this season of the
year. There were many people nt the piers to bid
their friends goodhy, and the pier an 1 steamer
were crowded.
The first warning call of "All visitors ashore,
please." Is usually given fifteen minutes before th
vessel's departure, but yesterday the crowd was so
great that the warning was given a half hour be
fore the sailing time, and even th^-n the ship was
delayed five minutes for the visitors to get ashore.
When the exodus from the steamer began the
gangways became so Mocked with passengers try-
Ing to get aboard and people endeavoring to get off
that the scene suggested the rush hour crush at
the Brooklyn Bridge.
The report that the Kronprlns Wllhrlm would try
to Bhave a little oft the Deutuchland's record could
not be confirmed on the ship, although there was
an Impression among the passengers that an effort
would be made to do It. The steamship will proba
bly have very favorable winds during the voyage
to help her along.

THI: TEMPTATION THAT FAILED (?)
OHIO REPUBLIC AX CAUCUSES,
HANXA MEN CONTROL IX THE HOUSE
AND PORAKER MEN IN THE SENATE.
Columbus. Ohio, Jan. 4.— In the Republican
caucuses this evening for the orjranlsatlon of the
General Assembly the }lann.i men secured control
of the House and the Foraker men of the Senate.
Somo of the nominations for the latter were mml*
without opposition, b.it there was a fight to a finish,
and especially for the speakershlp. Then was no
compromise in either case. In the Senate the Sen
ators make up the standing committees themselves.
In the House the Speaker appoints all the. com
mittees, and the contest was primarily for the
speakershlPi with everything else secondary. The
Republican Senate caucus was short and feature
less, but the House caucus was animated, and
lasted several hours. Representative Cole, In pre
senting the name of W. S. McKtnnon, of Ashtahula.
for Speaker, denied that McKinnon's election could
ho construed as a humiliation of Senator Foraker,
whose re-election they all desired.
Representative Guerin, in presenting the name of
Aaron i: Price, of Athens, for Speaker, repeated
the statement that Trice had been Indorsed origi
nally by both Senators and other Republican
leaders.
McKinnon was nominated over Price on the first
ballot by a vote of 38 to 30.
After McKlnnon'n address of acceptance. Price
was called out and made the sensational speech
of the day by nominating and declaring himself for
Hanna for re-election to the United States Benate
two years hence. Mr. Price said he found it easier
to get pledges than votes, and eulogized Hanna and
IfcKlnnon, to whom be credited his defeat, as men
of the highest character.
A. G. Comings, of Oberlln, one of the Hanna
leaders, was nominated without opposition for
Speaker pro tern.
Burgess MeElroy was nominated for re-election
as chief clerk of the House over If. V. Bpe«lman
on the first ballot by a vote of 43 to 25. The
Foraker representatives made their last hard stand
for Spcelman, many of the other nominations being
made without much opposition, the slate going
through as follows:
For Speaker— W. 6. MKINN"V

TO REFUND DUTIES OH N.I I/O IV (;OOI)S
PRSJB TRADB BETWEEN TUTUILA aND HONOLULU
UNDER SUPREME COURT DECISIONS.
[lIV TKI.KIiHAI'II TO THE TRIBUNE.]
Washington, Jan. 4.— Without hesitation officials
of the Customs Bureau of the Treasury Depart
ment this afternoon decided to order a refund of
the duties collected on twenty-nine Samoan mats
which were exported several weeks ago from
Pago Pago, Tutuila, to Hawaiian merchants in
Honolulu. In advising the collector at Honolulu
to return these duties the action was based on
the grounds that under the decisions of the Su
preme Court defining the status of the Insular pos
sessions, these goods had been exported between
points of United States territory, and that by the
force of .he opinion of the Controller of the
Treasury relative t«> the return of protested tariff
collections on Porto Rlcan wares brought into the
United States, the exporter in this case was enti
tled to a refund of the duties collected In full.
The claimant appealed to the department In the
hope thai the case would be referred to the Board
of <;..,,, Appraisers, at New-York. After a brief
consultation the officials decided the case to be
wholly an administrative question over which the
department bad jurisdiction, and which did not
cone within the scope of work of the Board of
General Appraisers. Pago Pago is now an Ameri
can naval station, and the Island of Tutulla was
ceded to the United States by a convention be
tween Great Britain, <;• rm.-tiiy and this country.
Now that a test case has been made, a general
notice will be given to collectors at various United
Statrs ports.

WOir. l) WHIP WIFE HEATERS.
Philadelphia, Jan. 4 (Special).— Magistrate Puil-
Inger favors whipping posts for wife beaters.
When Martin Rogan. of No. tJH K"dner-Bt.. was
brought before him to-dny, charged with beating
his plekly wife, the magistrate's anger was aroused.
Turning to Rogan the judge exclaimed: "It's a
pity the whipping post Is not a legal punishment
for such as you." Rogan was held in $500 bull.

THE PASSING THRONG.
Ex-Senator John N. Wilson, of Washington, while
on a visit 10 this city, spoke enthusiastically of the
prosperous outlook of the great
FREE 81 L- Northwest country in general and
\ER AND of his home State In particular.
BRYAXI3M Mr. Wilson. It will be remembered.
PROSTRATE, was stripped of his Senatorial toga
In the Bryan Tree silver erase, and
since then he has been devoting Ms time and
energies to "The Post Intelligencer." of Seattle.
Speaking recently at the Waldorf-Astoria of present
conditions In Washington. ex-Senator Wilson said:
"Free silver and Bryanlsm lie prostrate and devoid
of life in the West. Nel'her Is an Issue politically
to-day with our people, for Republican prosperity
has given them an effective quietus. In noy home
State of Washington prosperity Is at flood. In 1901
we harvested wheat worth $12,000,000: from our
waters we drew forth $5,000,000 worth of fish; from
our forests we cut and sold timber to the value of
Ti0.000.000, and the returns from our hops, peaches,
apples, pears and other fruit totalled millions more.
Our beef, pork and mutton are the bes-t to be found
anywhere in America and command in consequence
an eager and abundant Eastern market.
Puget Sound, one of the greatest and safest
harbors in the world, when I first went to Washing
ton was scarce whitened by a sail. To-day It Is
trie centre of a vast and growing maritime trade.
Oreat ocean steamers ply regularly between the
sound and Oriental ports, and an enormous coast
wise trade has also grown up".
"I suppose the Nicaragua Canal will figure promi
nently before Congress this winter. Let me tell
you something of the attitude I
AMERICAN took toward the Hay-Pauncefote
RESPECT Treaty, In common with many of
AX ASSET. my countrymen." said Gilbert
Parker, M. P.. the well known au
thor, at the Xetherland yesterday. "I spoke some
thing to this effect to one of the leaders of the
British Government: 'When the Clayton-Bulwer
Treaty was drawn up England had moral rights
In Nicaragua, and that treaty gave her technical
rights as well. But conditions changed till the
preponderance of moral right came to be with the
T'r!ted States.' Then the United State* came to
England, saying something to this effect: "You
are doing nothing to develop the canal: we. who
could best do something, cannot while your tech
nical right stands In the way. We have the moral
right; if necessary, we can no ahead and gain the
technical right by force of arms.' England an
swered: 'Don't do that. It would be wasteful and
expensive. Consider the matter In a business light.
We will give over to you our technical rights, and
what do we get In return?' Well, what did Eng
land get In return for the abrogation of the Clay
ton-Bulwer Treaty? The valuable asset of the re
spect and goodwill of the American people. That
Ik what I urged would be the return, and what is
felt In England to be po The American people, I
knew, have a etrong sense of moral right. They
are willing to sacrifice, to fight, to die for it. They
felt that they had a strong moral right in the
Nlcararuan Canal. England hy yielding her tech
nical rights has gained a valuable reward, a tan
gible asset, in the respect of the American nation."
A BEQUEST TO HER DEAD SOX.
WIT.U OF MOTHER OF THH I^ATE El S. STOKES
FIL.Br> FOR PROBATQ

ROCKEFELLER EXTENDS TIME.
BARNARD COLLBGE HAS UNTIL APRIL 1 TO
RAISE $70,000.
John D. Rockefeller has agreed to give Barnard
College the sum of $200,000 If a like amount is raised
by the college before April 1. Mr. Rockefeller's
original offer was that the college should raise the
