DISCUSSING BRITISH TREATY,
In hirli the Canitillnn Kef ugeen Come In
for a Word.
Wsiir.To, Jan. 22 The British e-
tradition treat), which came over from the
last session of the Senate, was taken up in
secret session )eterdav and debated for
about three hours and a half, but no action
was taken. The members of ihe foreign
relations committee supported it in speeches
of some length, thoseof Senators Kdmunds,
Morgan and Ev arts being the principal ones.
Mr. Vest is said to have made a motion,
which was not acted upon, to strike out
that portion of the treat) which forbids ex
tradition for offenses of a political nature,
on the ground that this, if left standing,
would prohibit the extradition of djna
miters. Mr. I.iddleberger igorousl) opjiosed the
whole treaty, declaring that the recover) of
aluindred liiodlers from Canada would not
offset the surrender of a single Irish patriot
a refugee from British oppression.
Mr. Evarts replied to Mr. Biddleberger,
setting forth the defects in the pnnt
treat) which secures swindlers from New
York a speed) and safe asjlum in Canada.

by Deputy A. J. Baker and Turnkey Smith.
Edward McAlIen, the )oung colored bo)
indicted for grand iarcen) stealing $42 .IO
from the J. D. Stewart conipan) was the
hrst one arraigned. He pleaded guilt) to
the charge. Prosecutor Weav er made a
statement recommending that he be com

treme voutliand the additional fact that this
Is his first offense. He is but sixteen )ears
old, an orphan, and has few, if any. friends
to counsel him. Judge White imposed a
sentence of commitment to the reform farm
until he should attain his majority.
Michael and James Bray were arraigned
on the charge of burglary and larceny.

phraseolog) of the indictment J. K.

him in Cerman, and Judge White replied
that Mr. Mower might attempt to do so if
he wished. When the laugh had subsided

ble, breathed hard, and remarked in the di-
