WASHINGTON, D. G TUESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 19, 1890. PRICE TWO CENTS. POLITICAL NEWS CAUCUS TO-NIGHT TO CONSIDER THE FOItCE HILL. IT MAY DENOUNCE QUflTS RESOLUTION. Edmunds Very Much Disturbed in Body and Mind, AHGRY WITH THE PENNSYLVANIA MAN. Congressman Blanehard Renominated, New Laws in Mississippi Looking to White Supremacy. 8cnnlor Quay, nt tlio request of Sen ator Hoar, graciously permitted tils resolution to go ovor vrtthoiit projudlco until tomorrow, Tlio antediluvian Senator from Massachusetts wants to speak to also against tlio resolution, and lie overs that ho cannot prepare himself boforc to-morrow. Ho requires n great deal of mental primping these days beforo ho Is ready to mako a speech. ' President Harrison and Speaker Ilecd f ' nro laboring, as tho novelist would say, force the passage through tho Senate of the Forco bill. Tho I'rostdcnt, of courso, Is using his control over tho pa tronage as a bludgeon wherewith to beat down opposition. Tho Speaker Is exercising bis power over legislation at his end of tho Capitol as a whip to lash Senators Into lino with his views. A caucus has been called for to-night when n Inst effort to compel tho Itcpub ltcan Senators to drop their op. position to tho Forco bill will Lo made. It is within tho lango of possibilities, perhaps probv Ulltlcs, that tho caucus will give a dis tinct verdict of disapproval against Mr. Quay's resolution. This Is nil the morj likely because there Is n clear majority In favor of thu Forco bill. Hut no action of tho caucus, whatever It Is, can bo recanted ns conclusive Fifteen Republican Senators hav ictvcd notice that they will not b bound by tho Quay resolution If It b adopted by thu old of DemocratI votes. On the other hand, Senator have never regarded tho action of n caucus ns absolutely binding. They liavo looked upon it rather In thu nature of suggestion than of command. It Is not, therefore, believed tint, should the action tif the caucus be adverse to Quay's resolution that that alone will deter Messrs. Quay, Cameron, Plumb, Teller, and Woleolt from votlne for It. Their votes nnd r those of the Democrats will be enough ro carry mo resolution ana unite tue orders. The new Senators, or rather tho Sen ators from tho new States, aro In favor of tho Force bill, but they are much more strongly In favor of a change of the rules, which will admit of tho ordering of the previous question on nil meaiure. They want to put a stop to what, with the irreverence Indigenous to the wild and woolly West, they call gobbling. Their plan of campaign is to prevent anybody from getting any thing up, so fir as they can. and thus compel the adoption of a rule pro viding for the previous question. "Whether their policy of obstruction will prevail remains to be seen.

There is little question nnw nbout the majority of the franchise committee being favorable to the ap portionment system, combined with the Australian system, with additions.

Senator Boyd, one ot theleaders In the Alliance, said he would oppose any plan that would debar a single white man from voting. Mr. Dlllard offered an amendment providing: "That the House to have 120 members, the Senate 42." Members are so distributed that both Houses will bo controlled by white con stituents, so that the blacks at best would have no moro than fifty member In the House nor fifteen In the Senate.

Consternation continues In this city. All necessaries of life nre sold at fabu lous prices. Commerce Is very much depressed.

The llmiUVi special from San Salva dor says: Provisional President Ksuta has just received a telegram from Dr. Gullsnd, the confidential agent of Sal vador, now In Guatemala, saying that the terms of troaty had becti arranged. Dr. Gulland says In his dispatch that the treaty Is most favorable toSilvador. All the points demanded bv Kzeta have been conceded by the Guatemala Gov ernment. Dr. GulUnd will leave the city of Guatemala for this city to mor row to arrange the terms of the protocol. Owing to the receipt of this news Presi dent Kzeta has revoked the order to hli army to advance toward the City of Guatemala, and consequently there" hat been an entire cessation of hostilities. Nicaragua and Costa ltlcj have decided to become the allies of Salvador, and had pledged themselves to do all la their power to help Kzeta. Honduras had, as was known several days ago, promised to become the ally of Guate mala. It was also said yesterday that Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Itica weie preparing to form a union on the basis set forth in the plan adopted la the congress of the representative of the five Central American republics. It is thought here that the knowl edge of these faets influence President Barillas to agree to the treaty of peace asd to listen to the demands of Salvador. WHAT BZBTA SAID. President Kaeta said early yesterday that be hail decided to advance on the Guatemalan Capital, owing to the re jection of the otters of the Diplomatic Corps, who were trying to arrange a peace that would he honorable in the terms for Salvador. EzeU said in the terms proposed by Barillas, Salvador considered herself the offended parly, and claimed the right to dictate the terms of peace. She also claimed that the acts of Honduras displayed bad faith and double dealing. The diplomats whose efforts failed to bring about an amicable settlement be tween Guatemala and Salvador were much annoyed at the proposal of re newal of war. Advices received yes terday say that one of Guatemala's garrisons on the frontier became lueur gaats Sal unlay and a disparate tight ensued. The soldiers were indignant, because they had not lMeif paid regu larly.

Political Backing the Only IUqaisiW for Employmwit, HOW THE SOLDIERS ARC MISTREATED, Tho Grand Army lias Dst LUUe InSii onee Palmet's Wholftsate Dis charges of Oempetent Men. Editor Crttie: During the adminis tration of Public Printer Benedict a largo number of employes were dis charged from tho Government Printing Ofllce, the great majority of discharges having been forced upon htm by the management or mismanagement of the office by his predecessor, as will be shown by satisfactory evidence later on. It Is true that n considerable number of mistakes were made in the selection of "Ihoso whoso sorvlcns could best bo spared," but It made not a particle of dllTcronco to his critics whether his reasons for dismissal were good, bad, or Indifferent whether tho discharges wcto or were not forced upon him by cltcumstanccs ovor which ho had not the slightest control ho was "opposed bitterly, persistently nnd unflinchingly" by the fjnitsimtn, then tho official or gan of tho International Typographic tl Union, and Its partisan supporters. In one of Its "persistant" attacks upon Mr. Benedict, the politicians nnd the "spoils system" the following em phatic statements wcro male: No man can be a tnend of labor wlio 1M-cbanci-s one set of men and hires anottwr tosutlitty Hie ilematiiM of politician.

These and similar statements and pro tests, so far as discharges for political reasons were concerned, were INnoIlSKI) II V TUl'K union mbn kvbrv WIIKHK The evils complslnwl of were to be remedied "In the event of the election of General Harrison" by the appoint ment of a member of "the organization with which all honorable printers are IdenllflcU" as Public Printer. Mr. Do nath, a prominent member of thu Inter national Typographical Union, associ ate editor of the Cmfltmat, then "the olllclal paper of the I. T. U" made the following statement in the issue of Oc tober 27, 1886: We are now in a position to aisureour friends that In certain eontlngeulM wo sbsll not be disappoint!. In the eveot of tbe election of (lMirl Harrison our organisation will, for tb first tlata tn tbebUtory of the International Typographi es! L'uloti, be recognised la the appoint ment of Public Printer!" Three weeks later, two weeks after the election, the "news ami gossip ' editor of the Cratima. who evidently imagined that he was either "a prophet or the son of a prophet," gave the printers of the country the following "pointers" throuich the columns of their then "omelal paper:" An evening paper, In firing up a slabs for the DUtrkt, toeutions the name of severs! partla bare for l'uhlle l'rluter.

Also the following la the same issue: The UoveriuaeBt f Hating Office must, after Benedict to bounced, be, run on the tame plan that every otber good union ifltee iu the country U managed. The Public Printer should select good and com peted wen ss foreman, and the hands of the different departments should employ men on their merits, and maris and union but should be the only qiuUhcaUoas requi site fur employment. Whatever pledgee were made to the pi Inters of the country, through Mr Donatb and the CrafUman, by the man agers of the ltepu oilcan party in lnsM, 't U very evident that they were written in the sand and COMl-LBTKLV 08UTBKATSU by the tide on which General Harrison was carried into the White House. A member of the Is T. U. was not ap pointed Public Printer. '-Benedict is bounced," but the G. P. O.

On the contrary, a bitter parti san having been appointed as Public Printer, the only "requisite for employ ment" is strong political backing." "merit and uniooiam" V4ftg aacosulary, very secondary, considerations. The law provides that the Public Printer shall "employ no workmen not thor oughly skilled in their respective branches of industry, aa shown by a trial of their skill under his direction," but it has been moat Kagtantly violated Imriag the pnat year, and more "com petent and worthy employe" have been discharged by Public Printer Pal mer than by any of his predecessor in the sntne length of time, 'nnd ns a mat ter of course," said a member of the Senate Committee on Printing, 'Hhis leads to an Inc rents! number of mis taken." There were no good reason for the sweeping discharges made by Mr. PnJsner. sae haa had sua tjfrumjejifa of w.ork f a sumVifnt nntount os money to pay a much larger force than was turned over to him by his prudaoeaaor. In fact, the force has been largely In created during the pant year and the placet of tve or sis hundred dfacharg-at employes ffUed with iHhftrs who, if not Seat cosnpetent, were certainly leas ca. perienccu in the different cbtaaeaof work in the Government Office.

When Mr. Palmer look clwra he fmiml that his ptedereswtr had left the office In first class financial condition, ami that, with rare exception, the em ployes were competent ami faithful. llow different, how enilrely different, was the condition of the office In mny tespects. pattlruiarly the financial con dltlon, when Mr. Benedict lmcime Pith lie Printer. The fact tlitt he to.k charge of the office under most nnto-vard circumstances, with the necessity fr a large discharge placed before him," cin best be shown by a few extract from letters written by Public Printer Bounds lo members of Congress a short time be fore he retired lo private life. The letters from which the following ex tracts ate taken nre a part of the official records of the office: June B, JW. "I have your letter In re tard to , ami In reply will ssy that I am compelled to reduce the fotre owing to tlie excess of the pay-rolls, ami In reduc ing It I thotit,lit It no more than rlelit tn select the parties who have had ye of employment under the Government, and when 1 am able to Increase the force l In tend to appoint parties who have hut appli cations on file foryears, nnd who have never had any work under the Government." August 7, iSSfl. "I have your letter In regard to , and In reply will say that we already have 000 more employes than we can pay under the law and the pres ent appropriation, and 1 have got tn at once make a large discharge Instead of making any more appointments." August ), 180. "Yours of the 3tth Inst, at band, 1 And under tlte great re duction In our appropriation by Congress that It gives us tint $100,000 per month for all expenses, while our pay-roll alone Is $103,010, our paper nllls JSO.OOOand general expenses about J30,000, maklnglt Inevitable for me to reduce the force at once." The law governing tho appropriation for public printing nnd binding pro hibits the expenditure of more thin GO per cent, of tho total nmount during the first six months of the fiscal year, but It was not Intended that the maximum amount should be expended In four nnd n half months, which would have been the caso had Mr. Benedict retained the force nnd kept up the average monthly jMjtnents of hts predecessor. Mr. Hounds admitted that he had 000 more employes limn he could pay under the law. Hint he was paying out f 77,000 n month more than thu appropriation would stand, and that n large discharge was absolutely necessary. "There U but cne solution," ho said, "and tint Is to dlnnUs or furlough a sulllclent per ccniaae f employes to bring the c-in crsl expense wltliln the limit." Tint was the condition of affairs when on the lilth of Se pteniUr. 1J0. he turned the Cicvcrnnieut Printing Oltlre over lo hli tufrewor, and Mr. Iknedlct was oh nllil to "bring the general oxmrnse within the limit," because his predeces sor had failed to dUcharge his duty In that lespect. As before stated there was no neces sity whatever for TIIK SWKKH.NO DISCItAHOKS tnsde by Public Printer Palmer during the (mat year and It I clear to thoae who are familiar with the office and Its pciaonnel that at least IK) per cent, of the dismissals were for political rea sons. Now, In view of these facts. Is It not about time for those who promised the printers of the country that they would "blttrily, persistently and unlttach Ingly" oppose any and every Public Printer who "discharges one set of men ami hires another to sttlsfy the demands of politicians" to make an honest iffort to redeem the pledges so emphatically and repeatedly matle? It Is true that the Craftsman closed Its columns to the truth concerning the management of the Government Print lug Office during the past year, but the late associate editor of the Cruflim-in has "access to the columns of Inliuen tlal papers" beyond the control of the Public Printer and his partisan friend. The Chitic, the. I'nton I'riiUtr and other Influential papers would no doubt be glad to open their eolumas to one so "persistent ami unflinching" as the associate editor of the Craft t nut n was tn denouncing "political removals" from the Government Printing Office during as administration with which he differed politically. It mar be said that he now holds a good position under this Administration and that it would be ungrateful for htm to criti cise Its actions, but it should be ob served publicly that he held a similar position under the Democratic pirty curing the time be so "bitterly" as sailed IU Public Printer and was per Hdtled to hold it until he got ready to resign for the purpose of entering the race for that position. PntKTSUi. EX-EOLDIKHS. LKKD YOUR BARS. AXU LKAKK HOW YIHJH COMtUlHtS AUK MUTKKATSU1 IX TUB 0. p. O. Kdilvr Ctitk: la "the JtufU Oali of George G. Mtade Post, Xo, S. G. A. K.," for July, under 'Cntmnmrnt Printing Oftiee Notes," the fallowing appeared: While the Public Printer is not giving as many places to the Department or the Po tomac its they think they sm ntishMl to, yet the fact is that we continually mast new fates In the uatca from all parts of the Union, and about one in nv wear the but ton, no that, while this department may nut be getting a great deal, the Qraad Army certainly isnH getting left. There is no doubt "that we continu ally meet new faces in the oaVce," but it is very doubtful if one in tve wear the "button," and it is still more doubt ful whether one in twenty of those who do wear the button secured their places through Grand Army lafluettce. Polit ical influence is more potent in the G. P. O. than ever before, and if a soldier is supported by the G. A H. and a civilian, who "hulked in the sear" or who was being rocked in the cradle while the soldier was doing his duty nt the front ia backed by a Senator or a Representative, the civilian gets there every time. Kow and then thai Public Printer give an appidatmtfni to the Grand Army, not because they are en tilled to it under the lav but as t MaSTKlt Of CUAWUf. If the lav relnting to the employment of suhttvu under Use Goaextutva&t was carried out by the Public Printer no in Huence save an honorable diachartfe from the Union army would he aecea aary to secure eaaployntent under hiui when the force la increased or vacaucL ate to be tiled, and nothing but com pcleucy and tilibfiilness would be needed to insure his retention Hut th. lav it not now, never hna beam and never will be enforced in Wtter nd spirit by Public Printer Palmer, who wa appointed notvlthaundang the fa i that aevernl competent Union soldier indorsed by the Grand Army of the Hi. public, were applicants for the position A number uf soloiua have bueu di? charged by the Public rrtBler because their politics did not suit his Wtter tm ltsan taste. Among those dismissed by Mr. Palmer wss Mr. D. V. Fenton. He wss first appointed on his record as a soldier In 197S, ami was retained con tinuously on his merits as a workman for twelve years, until nts msMrsMt. tor rottncAi, HAx!r8 a few months after Mr. Palmer took hold. He had been em ployed tn the Specification Boom for about ten years, and was well known to be a competent ami faithful employe. The first move by Assistant Foreman Itamsey, then presi dent of Columbia Typographical Union, who also claims to have been a soldier, was to call him Into his "awful pres ence" and Inform him that he had been transferred to the Third Division. Mr. l'enton asked "Comrade" Ramsey to allow him to remain In the Specifica tion room, as be was thoroughly familiar with the work, and because the large type In that division suited his eye sight better llian the smaller type In the division to which he was to be trans ferred. In the language of one "clothed with a Utile brief authority," Mr. Barn sty tepl!cd "Punton, I don't think this Administration owes you anything, and I'm damn sure I donV '' That settled It. The fact that he had a splendid record as a soldier (his discharge show rng that he was engaged In nearly all the battles fought by tho Army of the Potomac during tho rebellion), that his country owed him n debt of gratitude (even If this Administration nnd a petty ofllclol did not) It could never repay, made no impression upon his foreman, who Is supposed to be governed by the broad spirit of "fraternity, charity nnd loyalty" toward his late comrades, nnd "Uncle Dan" was transferred to the Third Division, from where he was soon after transferred to tho Document Boom, also against his protest. From tho Document Boom ho wns transferred to tho pavement discharged bccauo neither this Administration nor his foreman owed him anything! Mr. Fcnton, feeling that lie had been unfairly and unjustly treated, appealed lo bis comrades In the Grand Army of the Republic. Tho commander of hli post and Department Commander Urell, who always sinks politics when the In terests of worthy nnd deserving soldiers etc at slake, or when wrongs done them arc to he ti'drtssed, called upon Mr. Palmer a numbcrof times nnd earnestly utged him to reinstate Mr. Fenton. He Infoimcd them that there were no charges against him, and that there was no cnutc, except that -UK WAS A DKMOtHAT, for his discharge. They were told that ho wculd not he reinstated, unless the Congressman from his district (Mr. Flood of New York) would recommend It. This Mr. Flood refused to do, and so In this case, which Is only a sample of many otlurs, a whole department of the Grand Army was ovorcome by a single Congressman. Now, what do the Union soldiers of the Klmlra district think of such con duct on the part of their Representa tive! What do the union printers of the rouutry think of the Public Printer and his advisers who deliberately and flagrantly violate the principles and laws of the International Typograph ical Union by discharging competent and faithful employes at the behest of partisans within ami without the oltlceT KvSouhek.

THE TRIUMVIRS THEIR COUBSB IN THE GUT TRIAL TO ItK INVESTIGATED. PLUMB'S RESOLUTION IN THE SENATE. It Is Mred t De Aimd at 0iomt Retmrt, WILL THE INFORMATION BE SUPPLIED ? StaU Sri8 Will New 0l Oal-Oom- miMiaBer llino Apfrevw the Mw- Hrajhe Olksrs Reliwnt The police Investigations, which alienated the Board of Commtsalonm and led to the resignation of Commit i loner Hlne, has Anally reached the stage every one anticipated, and It Is now certain there will be an Investiga tion into the whole business by a Con gressional committee. Yesterday in the Senate Mr. Plumb of Kansas offered the following: Iltmlrrtl, That the Commissioners of the l)ltrlct of Columbia are hereby directed to make forthwith to the Senate a full ami complete report, cotitAtnlng cnplm of all charges and complaints, ami by whom made, against Lieutenant Ouy of the police force, and all testimony ami statements taken by or mads to said CommtMlonera, or cither of them, concerning' such charges, nnd whether said tiny In his trial wat In formed of all the charges nud complaint made against him by any and all persons to said Commissioners, or either of llieui, and, If not, the reasons therefor, and what action has been taken In said trial or otherwise concerning said charge. On motion of Mr. Dolph tho consider ation of the resolution went over under tho rules until to-day. The resolution will doubtless lie adopted nnd the demand made upon tho Commissioners for all the pipers In tho case. Just how far this will be compiled with Is a question. Tho Maty has gone abroad that Colonel ltobctt, In the early stages of the Ouy Investigation burned n great many of the statements made to him, which were uted as the bails for formulating the charges against Guy, and while It looks sml seems absurd, yet there are many 'trance Incidents connected wl h Colonel Bobert's star chamber Investi gation which never saw the light of day. Whether they ever will rests wllh the Knelnecr Commissioner. It Is known that many statements were made to him spalnst certain lleutenatits when be started his dragnet investiga tion and went fishing for fame In T1IK CESSl'OOI. OP I'OI.ICR lNHjL-ITIKS that were forced from unwilling lips. Others gave damaging testimony against the accused oltlcials, which they positively declined to substantiate on the public trial, and, although Colonel Boliert Insisted they should be witnesses, It was determined lugally. almost at the outset of the trial, that the Commissioners hail no right to cither tubtMi'ua witnesses or commit them for contempt when they refused to obey a summons to testify. This gave Joy to the hearts of many a man, who, rather than lose his place, had told the Engineer Commissioner certain things he would not care to have his superlots know. These are the very statements the Senate resolution refers to. and the nueatton naturally arises will they ls able to get It? Colonel Bobert Is quoted in a recent Interview as saying: "What have I done with the testimony gathered by me? 1 have had It burned. I would have been willing to go on the stand and produce It, an far as I was con cerned, and I thought of doing so, but concluded finally to destroy It. I have the stenographic notes, however, in my possession." When ex Oroeer Smith flatly refused to testify in the Ouy tilal.and the state ment he wade to Colonel Bobert was published, there was a great hullaballoo about OIMkU AWAY "STATS SECBaT?," although the CoutmUaloaer stoutly maintained It had never gone out with bis kbowltdae or consent. There was some talk of investigating the matter at the tfu.e, but for some reason or other it dropptd into innocuous desuetude. So MktiLtr those very material atateuttnts are ever permitted to become the basis of a public Inquiry Is a matter of grave doubt. The lesolution was pretty generally talked about this morning at the IX-ttk-t Hulbliag. and the promised de velopments were anticipated very joy fully. Commissioner Hlne did not know suck a iwanjiithwi had been introduced until a Chitic reporter called it to his attention. lie swtmeil rather glad to know it and acted ami spoke a if he were aware that such a resolution would he introduced. it is eminently proper," he said, "and I am not at ail surprised. I an tJWtmhfd ausne such action, and I ana Slad there ia to be an lnveaiigstion It i needed. This thing could not have bad any other result, ami If the resolu tion passes, of which I have no doubt, alt the facts ami testimony will he promptly laid before the Senate. 'Urganling my resignation there is nothing I care to any. I shall plod along here until the) rri'tldrnt names my successor nnjl then tn. uesht msjf uowk asu oat. There is not the slightest probnbUity that he will either refute to accept it or not act upon it protuptly . ami while I do not know when my succeasor will be named, I believe ana hope it will be within a few days" Commissioner Itouglaas had but little to say regarding the resolution Intro duces) by Senator Plumb. "I presume it instil right.

Commissioner lline has the Ccrfrctetl brief, left with him yesterday y District Attorney Ilarelton, and which Commlsloner Douglass will look over this evening. It Is expected that CornmlMlom rs' Douglass, Hlne and Boliett will render their decision within a few days, unless Senator Plnmb's resolution Introduced yesterday delays flnal action In the cose.

Hugh Turner ami hts man Friday, who have lieen attempting to discover Bullis' hiding place since his escape at Bockvtlle, heard last night tltat Bullis would attempt to present himself at the City Hall this morning, and declared that they would mob him before he got there. At an early hour this morning they had all the approaches to the courts guarded, hut Bullis and his attorney. Mr. Barker, ran the gauntlet After getting to Judge Bradley's door Mr. Turner made an attempt to take the man, but did not succeed. He had re ceived advice from his counsel, Mr. C. Maurice Smith, that If he secured llullh on the street he could hold him. At 10 30 o'clock Judge Bradley took up the arguments upon the An cornti. He stated that so far as the suttlclencynf the papers were concerned they bad already beeu passed upon by Justice Bingham, hut he would lUUm to arguments upon the facts set forth In the altldavlt filed with the A-ifois eorpvt IIKOIXMNO TIIK AnaUMKKTA. Mr. Barker took up the arguments aud foiclbly presented the facts, which have heretofore been quite fully given In the newspapers In regard to the con duct of Mr. 1 timer since taking Bullii Into custody. He also demonstrated tlal time was a conspiracy existing between Hush Turner ami Mcvr. Francis and Holltday, who entered Into a copartnership with Bullis In hU chemical motor. They were all anxloue to have him back In Utah, and would resort tn any desperate mean to get him. Mr. Barker laid considerable stress upon the point that after the case against Itullls hail been dtsmiaaed by Judge Mills Turner had openly threat ened to ste that UtillK after once lit Utah, would not see his Kaatertt friends again. The process of AaAM eorjini hd been properly issued, served and a return made. Ami this bad been ignored by Hugh Turner. Mr. Barker held further that he hail perfect right tn stive the wilt himself, aa he had first thoroughly well satisfied himself on this point legally. Mr. C. Maurice Smith, in opening in behalf of Mr. Turner, said that there was not much use of wasting time on the matter as the h-ituai corpus had waa not. under the statute, in proper force. Insomuch as it bad not been served bv a United States marshal, but by Mr. Bar ker, Bullis' attorney. MO UKIHT TO IIOI.O THE J"Ifk. Judge Bradley bete Interrupted anil stated that he did not think this was necessary. There was a rule which re Suited service to be made by a United tates marshal, but the law did not so consider. As far as the writ was con cerned he held that it had been properly returned. Mr. Turner had deliberately Ignored the dignity of the writ issued by Justice Bingham directing that be be Immediately taken to Utah, aa re ciulrcd by the requisition papers. Mr. Turner had no right to take poiaeailon of and hold the prisoner tn custody. From representations made Mr. Turner was not exactly tbe proper agent to hav the custody of the prisoner. lie bn bo right to impose in this manner oet the lights of any American citizen. It was a gioaa cutrage, whether it was for the want of money or not In caaay of this tkecrlptlon any State or Territory like Utah ought to be pre supplind with tunda lo carry them out Tbe argument then turned on what disposition should be made of the prisoner. Mr. Barker naked that Bullis be not turned over to the custody of Turner. "Can he give bail?" naked the Judge. "No. sir' replied Mr. Barker. "I will be here, your Honor," aU Mr Bullis. Mt. Smith ashed for tame ataf ha which to allow Mr. Turner to waks) his return of the hahtuu -oepe. "That ia the usual Uane." renHadjthe Jude, "and ia that wttaatime Mr. ftul lis can go on his personal bond."
