that the poois can be reached best by

The investigation was begun about a

Perplejcing Questions Arise j
Case of Austrian Who
i-'i^h/s Dijiorfrifi'-n.
"If a man. ;m alien, went on a fishing
trip, saiied beyond the three-mile limit
ami th^n camp back, would that consti
tute a re-entrance into this country?"
Judge Hand asked that question yes
terday in the UMtei Stat< s District
Court when the case of Joseph I'berall,
ay. Austrian lawyer, who was fighting
deportation, <-;urie up before him. Th-^
proceedings asainst him were originated
by the Aut-tro-Hunparian Consul in this
cit3\ Alexander Nnber ran Pereked, of
No. 12. M . East 17th street.
Judge Hand's inquiry came about in
this way: Überall landed in this coun
try on uetober 30, I'.KX!. He and a fel
low countryman rented the rooms for
merly occupied by the Austro-Hungarian
Consul, at No. 33 Broadway. The con
sul claimed that Überal] was interfering
with his business and made complaint.
Ghargei wore made against Überall. but
the board of inquiry of the Immigration
Department found that lie had been in
this country more than three years, the
limit of tir.ie for deportation.
"With tireless energy the board looked
up Überall's record. It found that on
October '2*h KBQS&, he had gone to Niagara
Falls, taken a carriage there and had
crossed to Canada, remaining there all of
thirty minutes. This trip was well with
in the three years' limit. To the board
this constituted a re-entry. It recom
mended his deportation; Commissioner
William, approved, and the officials at
Washington stamped approval on the
findings also. Then I'beral! hired coun
soi, go< a writ of habeas corpus, Rave
£3.000 bail and took tho case to the
United States District Court
I'berall's ca.se came before Judge Hand
yesterda:. The Austrian denied the
eharsea. and his uu— fought the de
cision of re-entry. Then Judge Hand
asked the question about fishinc: and the
three-mile limit. Coonsei for the gOT
ernment hesitated for a minute, and then
decided it best to look upon the judge's
inquiry as facetious
The law require? that an alien shall
be deported, if the authorities decide
that Buck phall be his fate, to the. coun
try whi'iio he came. Counsel for
liberal! wanted to know whether he.
would have to hp taken l»ack to <"'annda
If th? r«Tiirt should uphold the Immigra
lion authorities. «'an;ida might object,
as lie was not a native. If Canada ob
jcct«d, would Überall have to spend the
rpst of his days In the whirlpool or the
ranids. la a «bo« or rowboat ?
Judge Hand reserved decision.
London Rtvieu 1 Prmse and
Blame Mr. Roosevelt.
London, April 2.— Theodore Roosevelt's
speech before the students of the I'niver
<=ity at <*airo lasi Monday continues to
o. a subject for the editorial writers of
the London newspapers. The week-enl
journals tak* it up with avidity to-day,
but their opinions of It are extressely
diverse. The incursion of Colonel
Roosevel* Into Egyptian" politics has dts
pleased the Liberal organs, but It is ap

which contend that t'ne British policy in
Egypt is w< * kneed. "Th* Saturday

A Frmmd, Exploited Purely
for Sensational Purposes,"
Say* Prufrsy'.r I! art on.
[Hy TllHiaall )•• Th# Trlr.ino. 1
Baltimore. April I.— The ta)>let which
Professor HermaUD v. Hilprecht, of th««
University of Pennsylvania, announced
two weeks ago ha had discovered on an
expedition t.-» T'alestine, and which he.
asserted apbekl tho Biblical story of
the deluge, was denounced to-day at a
meeting of the American OrieaHal So
<-iety. at the Johns Hopkins University,
as a fabrication and as an exploitation
of an archreological fraud for purely
setaMtioam] puri«>ses.
"Tl:e ancient Babylonians had floods
of their own." s;<id Professor Bartoa,
"so it Is not «'Yen probable that tiifl
alleged tablet could refer to the story
of the Biblical deluge. 1
This declaration was made in a paper
on "Ono of the latest Additions to the
Babylonian Literature of the Delug*
Story** presented by Professor George
A. Barton, of Brye Ma-.\r College. He
took up in detail the COtuentiona of Pro
fessor Hilprecht and assorted that they
v.ere fallacious in every particular.
"Instead of waiting for the meeting
of the American Oriental Society." said
Dr. Barton. "Professor Hii^recht chose
to present his piper to a f«».-aimne con
gregation of the elite of the Philadel
phia fashionable set at a meeting of the.
A<orn Club of that city. Th« announce
ment orcasioned widespread newspaper
comment, pud the discovery was hailed
as a very important one. supporting in
every particular the priestly document
of the Pentateuch. I hope to show that
Professor HUprecht'a statements about
the tablet are not only incorrect as re
gards interpretation, absolutely wrong
as regards the alleged age to which he
attributes them ami totally of no :-iS
nMeanee from ;i "Hii^li -n 1 standpoint.'*
Dr. Barton saM that the scholarship
which PTofgßjjoi HRprecht manifested
In his translation of the text of his
tablet was "harri y worthy of a Brat year
student in Hebrew." and that the resto
rations which h« made in the case of
fillirg in broken Hues were "purely con
jectural emendations," so that the
chances sf bia interpretations being cor
rect we.'s "only about one in one hun
dred ."
"While OCCSsfos)al*7 his translation « f
a line i? pound." contiiff-O Dr. Bartur;,
•his drawi.-< upon his imagination in
filling out tha broker, lines was entirely
too fre^
"In tbe second place. Dr Hilprecht
claim? that the tablet wa« written somfl
tim« between 2117 and 8008 B. C. Any
studect o,- the Orient.il language^ could
tell from evee a i-asual examination that
th° diaiect in which the tablet la writ
ten belong to a wholly later period and
thjt havtead of tho real date of Urn tab
let heirs that of the tfine alleged, it
real*y belonga several centuries lat e -
Thus, even if the interpretation bad been
correct, the tablet la <.f no scientific
value, Bine* Ir belongs to a period ser
eral centuries after that m -which it waa
alleged tr- throw historical light
• In the third place, when Dr. Hilprecht
claims that this belongs to a priestly
document h'< altegaiioa hi based on a
mistranslation of the Babylonian text,
which in turn rssts upon a misunder
standing Of the Hebrew text and upon
th pure, unbridled Imagination of the
transiator "
\t the conclusion of Professor Barton's
papT an animated dfaKUßSlon was en
gaged in by Professor Paul Haupt. of the
Johns Hork'ns Untrersity, and Profesor
Albert T. ciay, of Tain University. Both
upheld in every particular the arguments
of Professor Barton, and added addi
tional material to the rase against Pro
