WASHISGTOS, March 8. Secretary Her
bert has been maeh embarrassed by the
action of the last congress in seiz
ins; upon alt tbo appointments
to fill vacancies in the naval
academy, which under the uniform prac
tice of the department belong to the in
coming congressmen. Last month about
twenty cadets were dropped for lack of
proficiency In studies. Under the law as
construed by the attorney general in past
years tho vacancies tbns created did not
actually exist until tho following June,
and nominations to fill them were to be
made by tho new conjrrossmen. To meet
this construction of law and secure for
themselves the appointments that would
go to the members of the Fifty-fourth
congress, by somo sharp "log-rolling"
tbo old members who were about to be
retired and hod vacancies in their districts
secured the inclusion in the naval appro
priation bill of an amendment authoris
ing the vacancies to be filled immediately.
Kew Members Uear of the Kaid.
Then they rushed their nominations to
tho nnvy deportment. Secretary Herbert
was obliged to confirm those that were re
ceived before noon Monday, but it appears
that some of the mcmlwrs fuiled to get in
their p-ipers in time, and there is a ques

wnetner tno nominations receive alter j

Everybody who can is getting away
from Washington now that congress is
through. The president has gone otl to
the North Carolina const on a duck hunt
with Dr. O'Koilly and a couple of light
house board officers for companions.
Members and vx-mcmbers of congress are
packing their grips those who have not
already gone and buying tickets for
home. Fully 1-5 members of tho house
have given notice to tho postmaster of the
change of address for their mail matter
and left, and as many more are expected
to depart during tho week, remainder
will leave gradually as rapidly as they
can dispose of various matters pending iu
the departments demanding their atten

those wno were at tho Capitol yesterday,
said he expected to remaia in the city un
til Friday when ho would leave for home
for a season of rest and reercat ion.

Three ex-members of the house, John J.
O'Neill, of Missouri; John T. Dunn, of
New Jersey, and I). W. Brookshiro. of
Indiana, havo been admitted to practice in
the supreme court. O'Neill remarked
after taking tho oath that this step on

accompanying tho demand by a threat of
enforcing it by the use of these pretended
laws, may bo prosecuted for attempting
to ooiain money uuuer laiso pretenses,
provided he knows that these laws have
no existence as laws or as judicial deci
sions. The so-called laws referred to arc those
often promulgated by nrwspajicrs to the
effect that subscriptions to a paper can
not be stopped until full payment of ar
rearage has been made, and that a pub
lisher may prosecute in criminal action
a subscriber who refuses to take his paper
from the office, not having paid full ar
rearage, or a subscriber who takes a paper
and refuses to pay for it. The) rules the
assistant attorney general says, have no

MlXNEAPOLIs, March C Tho closing
act in the great Hay ward murder trial
was begun under strange auspices. The
deputies and attendant nurses had
brought S. H. Dyer, tho sick and aged
juror, carefully into court and deposited
him in a reclining altitude in an tasy
chair. It was an evident effort for liim
to hold his head up, but when at last ho
had found a comfortable position court
was opened, and tho defense having con
cluded to introduce no more evidence.
Frank Xye, the county attorney rose to
address the jury. His face was nhen palo
and his eyes shone like two stars in a
dark night. It did not sue in as he leaned
against the table that he could ossibiy
prove equal to the livo hours of talk that
were before him. However, before ho
had been talking twenty minutes the ora
torical exui:ment was upon him and tho
mental inspiration of thi complicate!
and remarkable case which he was now
toanalyza for the jury played its part.
His voice rang out like a bugle and his
friemfs were confident that he would hold
out to the end.
Hay ward's Carer r sketched.
Mr. Xye opened with aa admission that
he did nut' feel stronjt eaougii to be surj
of going through to the end of the closing
argument. But he fult sure that the ver
dict did cot rest on any nr. a of 11. '.-Ii.
God, who ruled th'j universe, would

diuary caso. Briedy but effectively ho
then sketched the career of Harry Hay
ward, his gambling proclivities, his asso
ciations with Mi?s Ging, nnd iiis
influence over "this sick man"
Blixt. Tho crime had been com
mitted by Biixt at tiie incitntion of
Hay ward, but it hid brought with it a
revolution in his entire being. After it
came conscience, r.-morse, horror of him
self. No man coiihl picture the agony of
the horror that Blixt endured ufter tho
commission of the crime until he decided
to tell tho truth.
Killed Mis ing in a Frenzy.
Biixt had killed Kate Ging iu a frenzy
and not as n criminal would have done it.
H bad gone to tho deed with his hands
grimy with honest toU; he was not a
criminal at heart, but a man who earned
his bread by the sweat of his brow.
Scarcely knowing what ho did ho hurried
poor Kate Ging into eternity at tbo behest
of that black villain and conscienceless
scoundrel here accused.
Mr. Nye dilated at length on the fart
that for two days that ignorant man had
sat on tho witness stand uuder tho scuttl
ing lira of one of the most brilliant cross
examiners in the United States without
flinching from the truth.. Tho great Kr
win had been but a mere puppet in tho
hands of this man endowed with God
civen strength to withstand the ordeal.
The corroboration of Blixt's story was
ample and complete, and the speaker
traced it out in detail.
