b. rwhowere present to hear '*he. argen.et
in. the Bayward .Ilblng ea: .es.lers case.
Ex-Secretary Bayard and' ex-Atterney Gen
oral Garland, of President Cleyeland's cab
iunet,' exSenator: Edmuods, and, Senator
Mitchell, of ''Oregon, Representative
Springer, of Illinois, and others were preS
ent besides Attorney-General Miller, Sollo
itor-General Taft. Joseph H. Choate, of
New York, and others who will take part in
the argument. When the court assembled
Justice Bradley was not pfesent, but he ar
rived and took his place on the bench just
before the Sayward case was oalled so the full
court was present when the hearing began.
This celebrated case arises out of the
seizure of the Canadian sealer W. P. Say
ward, in Bering sea, for violation of the eat
of congress making it a penalty to catch
seals within the waters ofBering sea. The
vessel was libeled under the admiralty laws
of the United States and, after trial in the
United States district court, was declared
forfeited. 'The case was then brought to
this court on motion for a writ of prohibi
tion to stop the Alaska court from taking
measures to enfored the decree, the ground
L for the motion beilig the contention that
the court had no jurisdiction to try the of
fense, for the reason that it was. committed
more than three miles from the shore and
therefore, under the law 'of nations, with
out the juriedictioon of the United States.
r By this method t is sought to secure' an
opinion from the court on the question
which has been for a long time ,in contro
versy.between the United States and Great
Britain as to the right of the former coun
try to the exclusive control of the seal eBh
a-cries of Bering sea,
The opening skirmish in this legal battle
resulted in favor of Great Britain, the court
deciding against the preliminary plea by
the United States, that the supreme court
could not entertain even a motion for leave
to file a petition for a writ of prohibition.
Since the legal proceedings began an agree
a 'men has been reached, between the two

S'not affect the present case. Calderon Car
t lisle'of this city, opened the case in behalf
of the owner of the Sayward. At the outset
9 he said a decision of the case.could not
forestall anything any other branch of the
government should do. Of course, he said,
it will stop any seizure of any foreign
vessel under any exising law. This court
a may in this case without expressing any
opinion as to the rightsof the United States
hold that the seizure of this foreign vessel,
I fifty-nine miles from land, was illegal
t under international law, and under the ex
isting law of the'United States and not
t forestall any convention of the United
a States with reference to- seal prop
erty. Carlisle combatted' the posi
tion taken by the United States that
this court was bound by the face of the
proceeding and could not go behind what
is shown on the record submitted by the
judge of the Alaska court, first taking up
the words of the libel which sets out : "The
e vessel was seized in that part of Bering sea
a ceded by Russia to the United States." He
said it might very well be held that no part
of it was ceded by Russia. If it was a cos
sion' from anybody it was a cession from
e the civilized world, for Russia could not
cede beyond three miles from the shore.
Carlisle next took up the point raised by
1 the United States that if the court could go
behind the return of the Alaska judge there
e was evidence which it may be presumed
might have justified the court in holding
that seals were taken within the three mile
limit. The attorney general, Carlisle says,
in addition to the two small barriers of
3 which he had spoken, hhd set.sp another
s more serious one, namely, that the position
taken by the executive with reference to
Bering sea was a position taken on a politi
Y ofl question, that of national sovereignity,
- which absolutely binds the court,
whether that position be right
or wrong. If the argument be
3 correct that regardless of the laws of na
a tions and the acts of congres8 the president
can extend the national boundaries far out
into the ocean, shall he stop there andnot
t make assertions as to our power and right,
which would, in the language of Justice
Starr, lead to universal mischief. He then
a asked why if the United States could try
a British sealers for offenses in any of these
r waters, why not British sailors for murder?
Hle claimed the writ of prohibition must
issue because of fundamental want of juris
ýf diction inthe Alaska court.
Solicitor General Taft, in opening the
ease for the United States, said its position
" could be stated in two sentences: 'irst,
a that the question which thepotitioner seeks
here to raise is not presented to the court
Son the record in the case; second, that if
it is presented to the court the question has
been decided, being a political questlon, by
the political departmente of the
government, and the court will not reverse
or qualify that decision. Takiung up the
political phase of the argument the solicitor
general said the government did not deny
- that the jurisdiction of the Alaska court
and the venue of the offense were judicial
questions, to be decided by that court and
r by this court in proper case. What, he
asserted, was the jurisdiction of that court
and the venue of that offense. By a single
step it was made inevitably to depend upon
national jurisdiction in Boring sea. That
is a political question and the decilsion to
execute the act of congress on that political
question is conclusive, not only upon this
court, but upon every citizen within the
jurisdiction.
HIS ONLY RIVAL.
JIs Blaine, of MRaine--Not Afraid of Major
MeKinley.
WAsnsreoxoN, Nov. 9.-It is understood
that the president does not regard the
election of McKinley as in any way en
dangering his chanoes for a renomination,
The friends of 'the presidient say that his
only possible rival is Blaine, arid, as the
feeling is spreading that Mr. Blaine will
not be a candidate, it is hardly probale that
he would throw his influence to MoKinley,
in view of the fact that MoKlnley bitterly
opposed the adoption of Blaine's recilpro
city scheome. A close frioend of the presi
dent said that wlhile the administration felt
a dSep interest in New York. MaDsachusetts
and Iowa, and gave material assistance to
the tickets in those states, yet it was in
Ohio that the administration centered
all its force. The electioln of Mc
Kinley wis an indorsementa of the

iNew Youa, Nov. 9.-Report on the pro

Sthese objects are two: First, a frank, ex

kindness and the true offer of salvation to
all men, through Christ, by his word and
spirit; second, clearing our confession of

To,.no, .O, Nov. 9,-Delegates to the fif- t
teenth general assembly, Knights of Labor, d;
are arriving here in large numbers froim all
parte of the United States, Canada and two
,.Othriee cities` in' Mexico. The delegates o
pay this will be one of the most important tl
assemblies ever held. The finance commit- it
teehas.about completed its work, and so cV
farr inde all finances of the order in splen

shelw thaf tlae order has increased its mem- sI
bership over 8,000 during the past year in this
eptintry alone,sand all local assemblies are
in t flourishing condition. The most impor
tant matters to come'before the assembly a
will be the ,publio school system of this
country. Many, perhaps a majority, of the
delegates, are Roman Catholics, yet they p
intend placing themselves on record in ref
erence to the school question. The feeling
appears to be unanimously in favor of .the
public school' system. A promi
nent delegate, a Roman Catholic, said 11
this afternoon. "The knights believe in r
education as the only safeguard of this aid
allother liberty-loving nations. It is the i
duty of the state to see that the child is ed- p
ucated, leaving to the parent the selection
of the ichool and the method of such edu- p
cation, It is the parent's right and privi- c
lege to educate his child in a Catholic, a
Lutheran, private or public school, just as a
he sees fit, but it is the duty of the state to
look, after .the child and see that it is edu.
eated. We are in favor of compulsory edu- rI
cation, so the state can legally and authori- p
tatively say to the parent or guardian, 'ed
ucate your child; I don't care where; I
leave that with you, but you must 'educate 1
him" or I will.' That is the position of the I
Knights of- Labor on the school question,
and that resolution will be adopted in the
general:asembly, it is' believed, without a=
dissenting voice. We may also take some
action in favor of introducing the Austra- i
lian.ballot into states not yet voting that
way."
UNITED IRISHMEN.
.--- t
Address to the National eague of America E
by thie Oficersi..., .
Lmc Neb.' Nov. ý.-Mk. V. Ganpoh, i
president of the Irish National League of
America, William Lyman, treasurer and
John P. Sutton, secretary, to-day issued a
significant statement addressed to friends I
of Ireland in America. It refers to the rival 4
factions inflamed with hate arrayed against
each other in Ireland and says those who
would be naturally looked to there for
counsel tending to peace and unity are
foremost in fermenting political strife, t
adding that it is patent to every thoughtful
man that the contending parties are tdo
strong for one to polilically" destroy the
other. Union between them is absolutely
necessary to the success of the Irish
cause, and it must be a union of
head and heart, based on mutual
concession,. 'Even if every present as
pirant to the leadership has to be forced
into retirement it should be resolved by the
Irish in America that no 'parliamentary
faction shall be permitted to bring upon
our motherland ruin more complete than
England's tyranny has been able to accom
plish. We believe in the manhood of Ire
land, and to it we appeal to force these
oarliamentarians to stop their quarrels or
make way for other Irishmen to whom the
interests of their country are of greater
merit than personal ambition or personal
animosities." The address calls for a more
thorough organization and the redoubling
of efforts to make the Irish league of Amer
ica a poighty engine for good, not only for
Ireland, but for the Irish race all over
he world. "Entirely non-political in
America," says the address, "the league
will exercise a marked beneficial influence
in Irish affairs and its power to render
financial assistance be far greater than can
ever be derived from spasmodic collection
tours by Irish representatives. Its service
to Ireland in the past has been incalculable,
in spite of many obstacles, and now as an 1
independent American organization it I
should not heed the clamor of interested
parties or stop by the wayside to quarrel
with fellow-countrymen, but go steadily
forward, endeavoring to. bring order
out of chaos, union out of dis
union. and utimate freedom to Ire
land." Branches should be at once
organized and state executives are urged to
put good working men out with the least
possible delay. The address says it has
been boasted by British statesmen that a
Soun could not be fired in Europe without
r I e consent of England because, strong in
her own splendid system of organization,
she kept every European nation in is state
of turmoil and dlsorganization through the
medium of subsidized secret societies. "She
is playing the same ganse in America to
day," says the address, and asks, "Can we
possibly hope to overcome liher powerful in
fluence without organizing to counter
act it?"

Connor. It was apparent from the first
that Connor was no match for Gormnan. In
the second round Conneor was knocked and

ALBERT EDWARD 0F WALES.
I Turns thie Half-Century Post- A Costly
Present.
Loanorc, Nov. 9,-To-day is the fiftieth
anniversary of the birth of the prince of A
Wales, The occasion was celebrated ib
a quiet manner at
Sandringham, in Nor
folkshire. A large
number of congratu
lations were received; E
To-day fir Augustusa

representing the theatricalprofession, pro
d ceoded from London to Sandringham,
where they privately presented a gold cigar
box to the prince. The present is a superb
specimen of the goldsmith's art. It weighs
100 ounces, and the value of the metal alone
is very great. The top of the box is sur
moanted by three ostrich feathers, forming
the arms of the prince of Wales, set with
r, diamonds.
11 The Standard, in a leader on the prince of b
a Wales's fiftieth birthday, congratulates the
prince in highly eulogistic language and
a concludes: "It not always proof against s
it the temptations to which the greatest of t
t" mankind have yielded, he can challenge v
a comparison with most of his predecessors, b
and to the most dangerous temptation, to
interfere in political and constitutional
1 controversies, he has been conspicuously

he RloM, Nov. 9.=-Marquis di Rudini, Italian
premier, to-day delivered a long speech at
f Milan. Part of his speech was devoted to
the financial situation of, the government.
During the coursa of his remarks he an
nounaed a complete equilibrium established
id in the budget. Not only were the estimated
in receipts fully equal to expenditures, but
even a small surplus in receipts might be
a expected. In his allusion to the vatican, ]
he Rudini said: "We have in our midst the
A- papacy, which sometimes assumes a threat
n uning attitude. But its sphere of action is
limited to the exercise of spiritual
powers, not only by law which ]
1- cannot be lightly contravened, but i
i, also by the almost unanimous consent of
as those who thought themselves most re
to ligious of the countries. Ecclesiastical
o policy has now become conditional. The
honor and strength of the kingdom of Italy i
n- must be scrupulously maintained. De- I
ri- plorable incidents produced by a few
d- short-sighted persons will not make us de
viate from our policy. Strong in the pres
ent and confident in the future, we fear
te lessly guarantee the fullest liberty in
he Rome." Rudini's remarks concerning the
B, papacy have produced a bad impression at
he the vatican, the programme tending to
a make the pope only the first subject of the
ue king. The pope will prepare a sharp note
'a- in reply.
Desire to Govern Themselves.
GrIBALvAR, Nov. 9.-A dispute between
the French government and the sultan of
Ma Morocco regarding the ownership of the
oasis Touath does not seem tio be approach
lu, ing a solution and if France remains stead
of fast iin her determination to take possession
od of Touat, there is no doubt that serious
trouble will follow. The majority of the
a inhabitants of the oasis do not look with
ds favor upon the claims of either country and
ral desire to throw aside all foreign govern
ment and form an independent government
of their own. The sultan of Morocco re
o cently sent a number of emissaries to Tonua
or to endeavor to gain their support to his pre
re tensions to the sovereignty, but the recep
e, tion thee met with will be apt to deter

MRA. BERGEN, OF BILLINGS
A Telegram Sent to His Fiance Say.
ing That He Was Sick In
St. Paul.
Supposed to Have Left Billings f01 8
Her Home in an Iows
Town.
No Trace of Him Found Nor of the 5ender
of the Telegram-- ad Money
With Him.
'Sr. PAuL, Nov. 9,-fSpecial.]--J. B Fraw
Iey and his niece, Miss Mae Frawley, of
Marringo, Iowa, registered at the Sherman"
house in this city on Sunday. They, were
called here under most mysterious ciroum
stances. On Saturday Miss Mae received a
telegram at Marringo from St. Paul which
was signed "Dr. Chapplin," and stated that
her fiance, who is a wealthy stook dealer of
Billings, Mont,, named Bergen, was lying
dangerously ill at the Sherman house. She,
in company with her uncle, took the first
train for St. Paul. They were dumb
founded to learn upon their arrival that
Mr. Bergen was not at the Sherman house
and were startled by learning later that
there was no such person in St. Paul as Dr.
Chapplin. Mr. Frawley searched all over
St. Paul and Minneapolis but was unable
to find a trice of Bergen, or any
one called Dr. Chapplin. It seems
that Mr. Bergen several days ago
informed MissFrawley that he would leave
on the day his letter was dated for the east
with a large sum of money, going by way of
Marringo. She had for several days been
expecting him to arrive at her home when
she received the telegram from St Paul.
Naturally enough foul play is feared, Mr.
Frawley to-day sent a telegram to Billings
t addressed to Mr. Bergen. No reply to it
had been received at six o'clock, when Mr.
Frowley and niece started for their train to
return to Marringo. Mr. Frawley engaged
a special party to look after the matter for
him, and unless a reply comes from Bill
ings showing that Mr. Berged~ is safe, do.
tectives will be set at workuponteeo matter.
BIG ENTERPRISE.
To 8urnish e lectricity for Westside Ruim
ing Towns.
e Pmnrnavno, Nov. 2.-[Special.]-Seven
miles from here, on the headwaters of Flint
creek, works are being constrt te4which,,'
when completed, will furnish the pdwer for
all the mining camps near here. The Flint
Creek Electric Power.company was organ
ized last June. Their object is to utilize
the series of falls that exist on upper FlEiT .
-eaek, The incorporators' are O. M.iBen,
nett, of Virainia City, and Baker and
Harper, of Butte. The capital stock was
fixed at $25,000, with privilege of increasing
h at any time. This sum has already been
expended this fall, and it is estimated that
when completed the works will cost $100,
000. The incorporators have been watching.
this stream for several years, and find
that they can depend upon from 2,000
to 3,000 miner's inches of water.
e In order to utilize this water power a flume
a6,600 feet is being constructed along the
Smountain side. The flume is three and
one-half by four feet, and there are two
tunnels, one 360 feet long, and the other 710
feet. The excavation ,for the flume has
been completed, and the lumber is on the
n ground ready to be put in place in the
n spring. The dam is constructed of rook, is
1 100 feet in length, twelve feet high, and has'
na waste weir of cast-iron pipe worked with
g automatic valves. The water supply comes,
from Georgetown fiats, where a number of
g springs exist. As the water issues from
the ground it is warm and no danger is an
ticipated from the water freezing as the
distance to the works is so short.
At the end of the flume a tank with a
capacity of 35,000 gallons will be built.
From this tank a steel pipe, thirty inches
in diameter and 1,800 feet in length,,
will extend down the side of the
mountain to the power house.
The tank is 658 feet higher than the power'
house, so there will be a fall of over 2.000
d inches of water 685 feet; or equal to 2,000
il horse power. In the power house the main
pipe branches into a number of . maller
ones, by means of which ten Pelton water
wheels will be fed. These wheels are high
r- pressure and are capable of running ten
3, dynamos. The entire power can be carried
on ten heavy copper wires. In order to use
0 the power, motors are required at the, end
where power is used. It is.probable that
this power will be used at Granite, Ana
conda, Rlumsey, Philipsburg, and possibly
at Butte. The plant is seventeen miles
from Anaconda, and the company can de
liver 80 per cent. of the power sent out;
a seven miles to Philipsburg, and, Granite
Sand Rumaoy, and they can deliver 90 per
r. cent.; they could deliver 65 per cent. to
Butte.
SIt is probable that this power will be used
. in Anaconda for refining the copper, which
at present is sent away for this purpose.
There is already an electric refinery at Ana
d conda, which is said to be a ansuccess. The
d company began work August 10, and have
- completed the dam, the excavations for
id flume and pipe line, and expoect to complete
the tunnel before Christmas. Since the
I work began about 800 men have been em
d ployed. They expect to complete the work
'early in the spring. They erected a two
y story boarding house with accommodation s
for nearly 100 men and have also provided a
reading room for their employee. The
company have an ofloe at the works. They
also have a telegraph office. The operator,
t Charles F. Rhodes, also acts as bookkeeper.
Fred P. Gutolins, formerly of New York, is
e the chief engineer in charge. He is assisted
h by D, I. Werrinel, John W. Crimmon,
Sformerly of Butte, is foreman. When com
g pleted these works will be more extensive
than any other of their kind in America.
