DISEASE KILLS CATTLE.
South Dakota Stockmen Puzzled by a
Sioux Falls, S. D.. Dec. 10. 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.

Capitalist Mills to Defray Expenses of
a California Expedition.
Berkely, Cal.. Dec. 10. D. O. Mills, the
New York capitalist, at the request of
President Benjamin Ide Wheeler, has
promised the 1'niversity of California to
defray the expenses about $24,00O of
a two years' astronomical expedition
from the I.iek observatory to South
America or Australia. The object of the
expedition is to study the movement of
stars in the line of sight. Already this
work has been done at the Lick ob

"SAPHO" NETS PROFIT.
Miss Nethersole Makea $37,000 De
spite Crusade Against Flay.
New York. Dec. 10. The profits Miss
Olga Nethersole has received through
the production of the play of "Sapho."
which she referred to as being sadiy
"persecuted." were made public at the
hearing before a referee in the suit
brought by Marcus Mayer, her former
manager, against the actress to recover
$17.0y0. which he claims is due him as his
commission or percentage.
Miss Nethersole's brother, Louis Neth
ersole. who succeeded Mr. Mayer, testi
fied by referring to his books that the
gross receipts of the first season, after
deducting the cost of production, were
I102.2S7.39. The profits for the first sea
son were $10,566.13. Money paid to Mr.
Mayer, not including his salary of $100 a
week, amounted to $1,637.57. The figures
which Mr. Nethersole gave for the sec
ond season were as follows: Gross re
ceipts, $141,868.63: profits. $26,231.73.
The play netted the actress these pro

About to Be Determined by the
Neely Extradition Case CaUed
Up and Argued.
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
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
After a reply by Mr. Lindsay the
court took the case under advisement.

A New Factory For Topeka.
Dr. Littlefield, the eye specialist, will
establish a factory in this city for the
manufacture of his celebrated special
ground crystal spectacles and eye
glasses. He is now in the east purchas
ing the necessary machinery. The doc
tor has a class to whom he is teaching
the science of optics. He also has a mail
course of instruction for jewelers who
wish to learn at home without the loss
of time. He expects to have one agent
in each city in this state. At present
it will require but four or five employes,
but factories of this kind in other states
when fully established give employment
to twenty or more men and boys. The
doctor claims that fully two-thirds of
headaches, stomach troubles and ner
vousness are due to eye strain. He is
performing wonderful cures by the aid
of glasses alone. He is the only eye
specialist in this city who will come
to your house or office and test your
eyes free of charge, or who will make
you a pair of glasses on a positive

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
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

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.
