It thS Is to be the policy of the Ad
ministration, it is playing directly Into tlie
hands oi the reorganization committee. It
was understood when the statement was
given out that the sale was to be post
poned that this inaut both the Union Pa
cific, or main line, and the Kanxas Pa
cific, tho ttoik of both roads being owned
by the same company. If the talc of tlie
Union rns'lfie is ever permitted to go
through without considering the branch
line, which is a mere feeder, of somj
300 mils, and totally valueless of itself,
the Government will lose every dollar of
the principal and interest due from tho
Kansas Pacific. In principal and interest
the debt of Kansas Pacific is a trifle le&s
than Jll'.OOO.UOO, upon which there is
a first mortgage of $7,000,000. No one
oxpei t tl is branch to bring In anything
like enough to pay the Gov eriimcut claim
although the Attorney General professoi
to believe the Government will come out
whole on the sale
The reorganization committee does not
want this feeder. It has no earthly use
for it and will make no effort to get
possession of it. A prominent member
of that committee said yesterday that
if the Government did not care to accept
the bid of the tomn ittce the Government
might take the pioperty. There will ue
uo competition for that piece of property
nnd if it M'ould bring enough to satisfy
the first mortgage bonds everybody will
be surprised. This debt of more than
$12 000,000 should be guaranteed alone,
with the d bt of the main line Any othei
arrangement means a gift of twelve mil
lions to the nrganization committee. The
Union Pacific is responsible for the debt
of the branch line and the two cannot be
divorced by any process of reasoning that
has yet been advanced.
If this is the postponement promised by
the Attorney General, Senator Hanna",
friends have won out with a fractional
partot' th" plunder to their credit. Instead
of making a profit of twenty millions, they
will make but twelve, but that is sufficient
to satisfy them In view of the fact that
they have been detected in their plunder
ing. If some one has pulled the wool over
the i,yes of the Attorney General, the Presi
dent should by all means hasten to pull it
off agiin and show his law officer that
the Unlm racific debt and that of its
branch cannot be divided so easily.

'The fact is," it navsl "that Spain is

into exile. The six men who reached

party organized in opposition to Igiesias'

These men were thrown into piion early

charge of oeing revolutionirts. They were
kept in close confinement until last week,
when a graid of soldiers conducted them

never to venture back to the country.
The trouble, w hich has been brovvlugevor

THE COUNTERFEITING CASE.
Two Witnesses. Gve Damaging Testi
mony Against Defendant.
New York, Oct. 26. -William If. Dohm.
a lithographer, and Mis. Eugenia Reine
man were the principal witnesses in the
million-dollar Costa Rican note counter
feiting case today. They testified against
rredenco Mora.itlcardo De Rcquesens and
Louis Houseman, the men on trial.
Dohm sayshe made the stone from which
the notes were printed and delivered quan
tities of the notes to Mora and De Be
quesens, and that the lattei paid him for
the work. De Rcquesens, lie said, packed
the bills in the sora and told him that it
was all being done in the lute rest of MoraS
aspirations forthe presidency of Cota Rica.
Mrs. Rcineman says she was introduced
to Rcquesens by Mora, who '.ubsequently
induced her to accomjuny De Rcquesens
to Costa Rica. She denied that she had
circulated bogus notes there. Mora was
the moving spirit in the whole affair, and
De Rcquesens carried out the counterfeit
ing scheme on Mora's promise to pay him
well for it when he became piesident. Do
Rcquesens frequently borrowed money
from her to supply Mora's want". When
they returned from Costa Rica Mora up
braided De Rcquesens because he left pack
ages of the counterfeits on top of a ward
robe in a hotel at Port LImon.
Other witnesses testified regarding the
shipment of the bogus notes and their ar
rival in Costa Rica. Among them was a

This is an unusual proceeding in Wash

After this list was submitted to Hanna's
