All at tempts on the part of the most experi enced veterinarians in South Dakota to discover the cause of a peculiar and mysterious malady which is killing hun dreds of cattle in various portions of trie state have thus far proved unsuccessful. During the past month or six weeks cattle aggregating many thousands of dollars hi value have died as the result of being attacked by the mysterious ail ment. The losses are not confined to any particular section cf the state, but a:e scattered over a wide area in that part of the state lying east of the Missouri river. Most of the losses result soon af ter the cattle are turned into corn fields to eat the stalks after the ears have been picked. The genera! belief is that it is due to a greenish bug which was first noticed several years ago on the Missouri river bottom lands in Chadf-a Mix county. Just before thev die th- cattle appear to become crazy and tun about like wild animals. Barbed wir'-j fences are not strong enough to stop them in their wild flight. A WAY THEY HAVE.

CUBA About to Be Determined by the Supreme Court. Neely Extradition Case CaUed Up and Argued. UNDER ADVISEMENT. The Court Will Not Render an Opinion Just Now. Decision Will Indicate Position on Other Questions. Washington, Dec 10. The Neely ex tradition case was argued today in the supreme court. All the judges were present. The argument developed inter esting and important questions of law with reference to the right of the United States to extradite a fugitive criminal in the absence of an extradition treaty, and especially with reference to the right of the president since the ratifica tion of the treaty of Paris to maintain a military form of government in the island of Cuba. The latter feature of the argument made it the first of the arguments which bring up for final de cision by the supreme court the consti tutional relations between this country and the territorial acquisitions which it has gained as a. result of the Spanish American war. The Neely case referred exclusively to the character of these re lations, so far as the island of Cuba was concerned, and thus presented an independent question from that which will be argued on December 17, when the character of these relations with Porto Rico and the Philippines will be under consideration. John D. Lindsay of the New York bar opened the argument for Neely. He claimed that there existed in Cuba prior to our intervention a Cuban republic. This republic, he argued, the United States recognized on April 20, 1S98, when it passed a joint resolution signed by the president which declared that "the people of the island of Cubar are and of right ought to be free and independent." He claimed that the United States did not make war against the Cuban re public, thus recognized, but was its ally, and that therefore the success of the American army did not mean that Cuba was conquered, but that the Span ish troops were driven out of the ter ritory of a friendly ally. He contended therefore that when the treaty of Paris was ratified the war ceased, and as no war had been declared against the Cuban government, all further Justifi cation under the war-making power to occupy Cuba ceased, and the president should immediately upon the ratifica tion of the treaty or within a reason able time thereafter have withdrawn the army. He claimed therefore that the institution and maintenance by the president of a military government in Cuba was and is without authority un der international law, and in flagrant contravention of the constitution of the United States. He further urged that such military government was uncon stitutional as it was essentially a pros ecution of war against the Cuban re public, and as congress alone had the authority to declare war against the Cuban republic, the control of Cuba by the president as commander in chief was a virtual prosecution o- war with out the authority of congress.. He de nied that such government could be jus tified under the war power, as the war power has no existence except in time of war, when the war is authorized by congress, and that the president could not use the national forces for the pur pose of governing Cuba. He relied es pecially upon the case of Ex parte Mil ligan. He argued finally that in any event as the trial in the Cuban courts is without a grand jury, or a petit jury, Neely could not be tried before them without violation of the sixth, seventh and eighth amendments to the consti tution. Assistant Attorney General James M. Beck replied on behalf of the govern ment. He characterized Mr. Lindsay's contention as meaning logically that if an American citizen should apply the torch of the incendiary to the homes of the Cuban people and assassinate its citizens and then flee to this country, the United States, although pledged by the treaty of Paris to protect life and property in Cuba during the period of its occupation, was powerless to de liver such fugitive to the municipal au thorities of Cuba. He claimed that this contention was without reason or au thority to support it, and that the true position was that this nation had the same right as other independent na tions to surrender ftigitive criminals where it felt called upon from consider ations of comity or public policy to do so. Moreover, he claimed that it was an inherent attribute of sovereignty, be ing an international obligation which each independent state must, in the comity of nations, fulfill to another. As to the right to govern Cuba. Mr. Beck took issue with Mr. Lindsay's whole contention. He claimed that the government prior to the declaration of war against Spain had uniformly re fused to recognize the Cuban republic. This, he said, was shown by the fact that congress struck out of the joint resolution a provision which specifically recognized the existence of a Cuban re public. In the resolution as finally passed Mr. Beck pointed out that con gress had recognized that the Cuban people were free and independent, but he claimed that there was a wide dis tinction between the term "people" and the expressions "state" or "nation." There was a Jewish people, but at this time no Jewish nation. A state is, how ever, a political and organic entity and while therefore congress did recognize that the Cuban people had by success in the field of war earned the right to be regarded as free and independent it did not follow that any Cuban government as a political entity, was recognized. He argued on the contrary, that, as a re sult of our success on land and sea, the kingdom of Spain had executed a treaty with this country and that Cuba had been surrendered to this country and that while this country held Cuba in trust for the Cuban people until it had fulfilled the duties of such trust and pacified the island, the United States was the only de facto and de jure gov ernment in Cuba. As disproving the sug gestion that there could be no military occupation after the treaty of peace, Mr. Beck argued that even if such sub sequent military occupation could not be justified by the war-making power, it was amply justified by that treaty making power, under which this coun try had assumed the obligation to govern Cuba until it was pacified and a new and stable government constituted. Until such time the island was neces sarily governed under the law of belligerent right, even though there existed no present hostilities and peace had been officially declared. Mr. Beck relied with special force upon the case of Cross vs. Harrison, in which the commanding general of the United States in California, after the Mexican war, maintained a military government from the time of the treaty of peace until California was admitted into the Union. Mr. Beck paid that while the political status of Cuba was anomalous, it was not without preced ent and he cited the island of Cyprus in which Turkey permitted English oc cupation and rule aa long a3 Russia re tained certain Armenian territory. While therefore the ultimate sovereign ty was in Turkey, yet England at pres ent exercised full sovereignty in Cyprus and would until the contingency arose which would terminate its rights in Cyprus. He also cited the British occu pation of Egypt as an instance of the same government of "definitive occupa tion." He therefore argued that although Cuba was foreign to this government in the sense that it was not incorporated as permanent domestic territory into the United States, it was nevertheless terri tory pro tempore of the United States, subject to our jurisdiction and to our rights as the sovereign power and that therefore the United States acting through the commander in chief had full rights to exercise all executive, legislative and judicial powers in Cuba. With reference to the constitutional guaranties as to a jury trial in the bill of rights, Mr. Beck contended that they had no application to Cuba. Mr. Beck further said that Mr. Lind say's contention involved a remarkable contention. He could not deny the con stitutional right of the government to make the treaty of Paris, but his argu ment in effect denies the constitutional right of the government to carry out the stipulations of the treaty. This, doc trine, tested by its inevitable conse quences, is at once seen to be unsound. If this court were to adopt it. and the president were to withdraw the army from Cuba and remove the existing civil government, there would be no government at all. In absence of any government, anarchy might possibly re sult. This might lead to the destruc tion of life and property, which the United States under the treaty of Paris, has promised to protect. If therefore Spain, or any other nation, the lives and property of whose citizens had been thus sacrificed, were to call this coun try to account for our failure to carry out our treaty stipulations, the United States, if Mr. Lindsay's contention were adopted by the court, would be in the position of asserting that It had no power to carry out its own treaty obli gations. "Could," said Mr. Beck, "a more humiliating position be imagined, or one more contrary to that 'decent re spect to the opinions of mankind' which Mr. Jefferson made the key note to the great declaration?" After a reply by Mr. Lindsay the court took the case under advisement. WANTS MORE MONEY. Live Stock Sanitary Commission Will Ask For Si 5,000. The state live stock sanitary commis sion, which Governor Stanley hits said he will ask the legislature to abolish, is uncertain about the legislation desired, except from a financial standpoint. The members of the board are uncer tain as to the demands of the live sto-k interests of the state, but thyy are unani mous on the proposition that the board should have more money with which, to transact business. With this fact in their minds the mem bers of the board have practically con cluded to ask the legislature to increase the appropriation, from the present sum of J4,00O per annum, to $15,000. PAY FOR MOVING SOLDIERS Legislature Will Be Asked to Appro priate $40,000. Governor Stanley will ask the legisla ture to appropriate $-KU"tK to reimburse the railroads for bringing the Twentieth Kan sas soldiers home from San Francisco.

The managers of the Rock Island, Union Pacific and Santa Fe have filed with the state auditor their respective claims, mak ing a total of $40, Ow. The Santa Fe. having the principal line Into San Francisco, handled the bulk of the business, and the claims of this com pany Is $5,000. The claims of the other lines aggregate J5.000, making the total of $40,000. J5EVV PUBLICATION. A Medical Work of Practical Family Value-Bpecific Manual by Fred erick Humphreys, M. D.

Seeks Aid of Attorney General to Help Prosecute. REQUEST IS GRANTED. Assistant B. II. Tracy Will Co to Ness County. Citizens Unite With Father in Demand For Action. In response to a request from the county attorney, the father of the de fendant and a large number of citizens, B. H. Tracy, assistant attorney general, goes to Ness City tonight, to assist the county attorney, A. B. Foulks, in the prosecution of A. Schrabin, for criminal assault This is the first instance in the crimi nal annals of Kansas where a father has asked for assistance in getting his son into the penitentiary. Hilirer Schrabin, the father of the boy who is not 19 years of age, appealed to the governor and the attorney general, for assistance in the prosecution of thj defendant. Under the statute which permits tha governor to require the attorney general to assist state cases where the necessity is apparent, Mr. Stanley today issued an official order to Attorney General God ard. for assistance in this case. Mr. Godard at once detailed Mr. Tracy. The case has been before the governor and the attorney general for several days. The father of the defendant came to Topeka and laid the matter before tha governor. He also presented the case to the attorney general. The elder Schrabin exhibited letter and petitions from a large number of citizens, urging action on the part of tha state authorities in this case. "The boy persist.! in this criminal con duct, having been frequently guilty of attempted outrages. Things have reach ed such a condition that it is absolutely necessary that he be restrained. Noth ing can be done with htm. He seem irre sponsible in this direction and is the ter ror of the community." It seems that the family has been bro ken up by the separation of the husband and wife. Schrabin stoutly maintains that he is not seeking revenge but insists that the protection of the young girls in the town is necessary. If the defend ant is not in some way restrained more aggravated assaults, the father explains, are likely to take place at any time. From the letters and reports of the case which have been received by the attorney general and the governor it seems that the assault was particularly brutal and savage. While Schrabin stands charged with having attempted similar crimes on previous occasions, it seems that he has never been prosecuted to the full extent. Efforts have been made. In this case, by the outraged citizens, to raise monty to employ attorneys to aid in the prose cution of this particular cas, but this effort has been unavailing. The lawyers would not assist the county attorney un less the necessary money was for;h coming, and the community was not able to obtain. by subscription, the amount necessary. The statutes provide that the attorney general may be called upon to assist in aggravated cases, or where the necessity seems to exist, so the citizens took ad vantage of this section and brought the case to the governor, by sending the father of the defendant to Topeka tr ask for assistance. The county attorney also presented the case to the Attorney general and Mr. Godard concluded to grunt the request. To make the incident of proper record. Governor Stanley today issued the ord r which Mr. Godard has for authority to proceed. Crap Shooters Arrested. Henry Edwards and Fred Austin were arrested Sunday for shooting craps.
