CUTTING TO BE RELEASED.
A FORMAL DECREf TO BE EXTENDED
Tlio Editor's Term of IniprlMitunrnt Already
Undergone Will Ho Accepted lis
Snfilclent Punliliment for 1IU Crime.
How Cutting Ilocolvod. tho Noiik.
Eii Paso, Tox., Xug. 24. I have Just
learned the fact that Cutting will be released
by tho supreme court at Chihuahua on Tuesday
or Wednesday o( this week. ' The Mexican
prosecutlnct attorney and the counsel for
Cutting, in consultation with (ho preidng
judge, agreed upon the terms of n (loerce of
judgment under which Cutting is to be
granted his freedom, jand the term of imprisonment
ho has already undergone will bo accepted
by the state as tho punishment for tho
offenso for which ho stands convicted.
What eirect this turn of affairs may have
tending to postpone' or avert tho c6n!llct
which all horo deem to ba certain' -to ' come
sooner or later it is as yet impossible to determine.
Very few hero luivo heard of the decision
in Cutting's cose. Tho whole American
population hero agree in saying: "The
man Gutting wo. don't care anything for.
Wo want the principle for which wo contend
acknowledged by'the government pf Mexico.
V ivont every American placed upon -the.
bumo footlng'os an Englishman, a Gorman or
a Frenchman. We want tho snina privileges
as are granted to those favored nations by
all Mexican authorities. If these are not
granted war is inevitable within three years."
The war feeling in Kl Paso is still intense,
though business as UMial. Every
merchant finds time through tho day to drop
out and talk over the varying phases of the
situation. Tho aggregated wealth of tills
city in goods arid inerchandino renders J a
tempting pri2o to an enemy that may deem
herself strong enough to loot it. Tho leading
trailers are, therefore, blaming tho war department
for not thoroughly protecting the
town. Inquiry khows that no dereliction on
the part of the army authorities can properly
be charged. Beforo any raiding party of
sufhVient strength to sack EI Paso can reach
tho Rio Grande a force sufllciont to protect
the place will bo in line for its defense The
United States has four railroads at Its command.
Tho Mexicans have but one leading
to this entrepot between tho two republics.
Despite tho poactablo complexion placed
upon the Cutting affair by tho authorities of
Chihuahua, and the assertion that the troops
which have been recently massed along the
frontier were for the prevention or the quelling
of local insurrections, it is now known
that Mexico is not only maintaining a strong
line of defense, but she olta has hor troops so
concentrated that she can n necessary acton
the offensive. From every bouroe of information,
both Mexican and American, the
story is the same. Troops aro going steadily
and solidly toward the Rio Grande river and
the positions these troops successfully occupy
show that they may be engaged either in offensive
or defensivo operations, as necessity,
opportunity or the science of logistics may
demand. ' '
Military men in the army of the United
States justify a Mexican army of defense on
the frontier, because, under the
theyhold the object of contention,
the man Cutting, or the principle tinder
which he'was arrested. Tho initiative must
come from the United States, as the situation
now stands. What will she d6 is the
It is anticipated that Mexico will refuse to
give up tho principle for whi6h Mr. Baynnl
contends, aud war must inevitably follow,
sooner or later. A settlement of tuo4questiou
is, therefore, hoped now .rather than after
more Bufferings ami outrages inflicted upon
American citizens Under Mexican rule. Mexican
society of the higher class is well
thought of in Texas as honorable, hospitable,
kind and friendly to all Americans, but they
constitute a very small proportion of the
people and exert but littlo influence in the
matter, They see that war would bo disastrous
to their country, but cannot check the
.current of thought which domauds another
'collision with the Gringos, To such au extent
is tho feeling for war growing in Mexico
that recruiting for tho army Is active in all
the southern and central state, and an Intelligent
young man, who lias sojourned for
some little tlmo at SlUo, a city .on the Mexican
Central railway, iu Guanajuato, says
tho citizens. thoro drill almost daily to
themselves to the use of arms. The
drilling is done publicly on tho plaza, and bo
was given to understand -that
following tho exatnplo of, her sibter cities,
in hones that when the tocsin, sounded 600,000
men would be ready at tho coll.
This state of affairs requires a Closer inquiry
into tho position of vantage now held
by the Mexicans and the possibility of an
early collision between tho two forces. The
actual heavy battles of tho war would undoubtedly
be for the possession bf tho City of
Mexico, from a basis on the gulf, and hence
will have no direct connections with
Grande frontier but from
Brownsville to El Paso tho preliminary oil-counters
will keep tho forces thrown into tho
field more than active. The recent small
outbreak at Matamoros, in Tamaulipas,
would call for the marching of troops oast
from Monterey, but all the forces which
have recently passed through or noar Saltillo
hare gone north by oast, and are now in
camp the Rio Grunde.'botwoen MIer
and NYievodjoredo, and the forces jit tbf laW
tep4tQ8nntfftt''Flod'a3i JfcsriwuUavti been
strongly reinforced. Some of theso troops
in thelr'exultation over an anticipated brush
with the United States; say they 'are going
to assume the offensive as sopn as jar ls declared.
If this should be the caso the troojtt
first spoken of will, by un old crossing, enter
Toxat as a flanking column, while tho direct
attack will lie mado in two columns, ono by
way of Eaglo Pass and the othQi from LaredO.
htlll another force crossing further up the
river will prevent an attack in the rear by
American troops from the direction of Fort
Clark, and protect tho lino of retreat.
United States olllcers horo pooh-pooh any
offensive movomont on thi part of Mexico,
and say ull the initiative aggressive action
must coma from tho United States, Mexico
is defending a principle, and not only Bhalt
we declnro war, if war is nooossary, but wo
must be tho attacking party. la case war
must como our forces will bo placed qulotly,
quickly and cmcleatly. Gen. She) idau .will
then notify the authorities that he is ready.
The declaration pf war will be made, and if
somo little collision has not already occurred
one will almost Immediately follow. The
first campaign will prolwbly be to hold
by an advance on Tampico and
Nuovo Leon by an assault on Monterey
and Coahuila by tho capture of
These three states aro now defended
by tho recent reinforcements 6oken of
above. Guaymas audyHermosillo in our
possession will hold Soaora and tho remaining
points of contest in Northern Mixico will
necessitate the capturo of Chihuahua by way
of El Paso. '

the Statute UlreotaSIustllo Obeyed The
Now Chief of the Civil Service.
Washington, Aug. 24. Secretary Lamur
has niadq a decision in tho Farm Mortgage
caso, which has uttracted so, much attention
in Wisconsin, sharply overruling tho decision
of Commissioner 8park9, of tho 'general
land ofllce, and directing him to certify up
the lands at once, in ordor that thoy may be
conveyed to tho state of 'Wisconsin for the
benefit of tho Farm Mortgage company. Tho
greater portion q the Jargo tract of land
involved was long ago occupied by Innocent
third parties furmors and others, who hold
their title as tho grantees of tho Farm
Mortgago company, to which Commissioner
Sparks had refused to give title.
Secretary Lamar, in his comments upon
the decision of Commissioner Sparks, has established
a precedent which is of the utmost
importance in a large class of similar cases.
Ho does uotproposo to override a decision of
tho United States supremo court, which ho
declares to bo a very high and persuasive authority,
and he says: "What the statute directs
it means to have done. Not to do It, or
even to delay unnecessarily tho doing of it,
is to violate tho statute, und involves a gravo
dereliction of duty."
W. II. Webster's Appointment.
Washington, Aug. 24. Tho Post publishes
a letter from Donnou B. Eaton, justifying
the appointment of W. II. Webster to
bo chief examiner of th. civil service commission,
and denying that ho used undue influence
with the president to secure his appointment.
Knowing Mr. Webster's eminent
iltness for the position, Mr. Eaton
morely brought his namo and qualifications
to tho attention of tho president and there
let it rest; and he adds that "thoso lwst acquainted
with tho president's standard of
duty aro well aware that what may be called
influence avails nothing with him."
Mr. Eaton says Mr. Webster's capacity for
the place has been demonstrated beyond
doubt by his services as chairman of tho
principal examining board at Washington
for several yeurs, and as chairman of tho examining
board iu the pensloii ofllce, and that
his good faith arid fairness have never boon
questioned. Mr. Eaton thinks tho president,
in this matter, as in many others, has shown
a wisdom quite beyond that of his party, and
his action is but another evidence that he
cares much more for tho success of reform
and the interests of tho country than he
does for patronage or tho applauso of par-

Washington, Aug. 24. A circular from
uen. Dumont, supervising inspector of steam

steam vessels with orders that, if carried out,

expenses of local inspectors. Heretofore
inspectors have frequently been compelled to
make a number of trips to perform a single
inspection of a steamer, thus swelling unnecessarily
their traveliusr expense account
Hereafter inspectors are ordered, when
more than one trip is made for such inspections
through the fault or failure of owners
of vessels to have them ready at the dates indicated
in their applications for inspections,
to charge and collect from vessel owners the
actual expousos of the succeeding trips.
