City and County Officers Ousted by
Court Decision.
Louisville. Ky., May 22. The Cour
ier-Journal says:
The court of appeals has voted, 4
to 2, to reverse the decision of Judges
Jvirby and Miller of the Jefferson cir
cult court in the contest of the Fusion
ists to oust the Democratic officehold
ers of Louisville and Jefferson county
who were declared elected in the fall
of 1905. The decision will have the
effect of turning out all the city and
county officials.
When the mandate of the court is
sent to Louisville, it is likely that con
siderable confusion will follow in de
termining just who is to succeed to the
offices made vacant by the decision.
It i3 understood that the friends of
former Mayor Grainger, who was suc
ceeded by Mayor Barth, are having
the law looked up under the impres
sion that the right of succession is his,
their contention being that the law-
says a mayor Is elected for a term of
four years, or until his successor is
elected and qualified. If the court of
appeals holds that there was no elec
tion, Mr. Grainger's successor was not
elected. Under this contention it is
held-by some of the Democrats that
Mr. Grainger should take his seat and
hold It until the next general election.
The Fusionists, on the other hand,
maintain the governor will have the
right to appoint a mayor, because,
while Mr. Barth was elected, and
qualified, such election is null and void
and Mr. Grainger's successor has been
elected, although illegally, and has
qualified, although without autnoruy.
Mr. Grainger's term has expired both
by lapse of tenure and also, because
of the qualification of his successor.

Tjonjrsliorenien's Strike Seriously Af
fects Foreign Trade.
New York. May 22. That the strike
of the longshoremen Is having a serious
effect upon business, is indicated by the
comparative figures of exports Just
given out at the custom house. Last
week the first full week - of the strike,
the exports from this port dropped $6,
944,890 below the figures of the preced
ing week. Custom house officials be
lieve this enormous shrinkage .will be
greatly increased this week.
Operating Manager Thomas of the
International Mercantile marine, when
shown the custom house figures, made
this comment:
"No doubt the exports fell off last
week, but that was before we had the
situation as well in hand as we have
Noimally the exports to England av
erage 3 million dollars weekly. Last

Strike Leader Connors declares him
self as confident that the union will
win the strike.
"The customs figures," said he, "re
veal the truth that the companies have
been trying to conceal. This strike is
about the biggest, thing the steamship
men have had to deal with in many
years, and it is only the belief that they
will finally starve us out that makes
them continue it. But we are able to
stand it as well, if not better than the
companies. We will not return to work
until our demands are granted."

laboring for its success, have Increased

one voice that the scope of The Hague

already in force shall be supplemented,
