Philip Davis, a sailor heretofore attached
to the U. S. S. Fern, was arrested late last
night by Detective Tyser on the charge of
stealing a kit belonging to the government.
Davis is regarded as an expert gunner, had
been given a warrant as captain of a gun
and was about to take a train for New
York to which port he has been trans
ferred and assigned to the Dixie as drill
master in gunnery.
After the recovery of the stolen property
Captain Hains asked that Davis be not
prosecuted, because he could, the captain
said, be very useful to the government if re
leased. Prosecutor Mullowney nol prossed *
the case, and Davis was placed on board a j
train and started toward New York.

WANTS DECREE SET ASIDE.
Father Object* to Adoption of Child
by Strangrri.
A petition has been filed in the Supreme
Court of the District of Columbia asking
that a decree authorizing: the adoption by
William F. Teats and Maggie M. Teats of
Gertrude Teats be declared null and void.
The petitioner Is Frederich Wllhelm Helse,
father of Gertrude. He is now a resident
of Berlin, Germany.
The court is informed by the petitioner
that last June, with the consent of his
wife, Louise Helse. an order was passed
authorizing Mr. and Mrs. Teats to adopt
Gertrude and make her their heir-at-law.
Continuing, Mr. Heise sets forth that at
the time he was in South Africa and was
not informed of the proceedings. With the
consent and knowledge of his wife, Mr.
Helse declares, he, with his eldest son,
William, went to Europe In 1808, where he
started in business. Later he went to
South Africa. He had a disagreement with
his wife, he says, but while he was in Af
rica he became reconciled and wrote to
her, stating that he .intended to send her
money with which she could join him with
their child, Gertrude. This letter, he fur
ther alleges, his wife did not receive until
after she had consented to give the child
to the Teats for adoption. The court is
asked to review the decree passed and
annul the proceedings.
The petitioner is represented by Attorney
William L. Elterlch.

Justice Brndley's Naturalization "Itul
!?*."
To the Editor of The Ereuinjf Star:
In The Star yesterday a correspondent
states:
"Justice Bradley of the Supreme Court
of the District had an interesting Question
before him the other day, when he granted
naturalization papers to a young Porto
Rican." The correspondent proceeds to dis
cuss the "ruling" of the court in the mat
ter.
Permit me to say that Justice Bradley
did not grant any such, papers, nor did he
make any ruling. The young Porto Rican
referred to has been residing in this coun
try a little longer than one year; there
fore. he is not entitled to final papers, If,
indeed, It be necessary for him to take out
naturalization papers. He merely desired
to declare his intention of becoming a citi
zen of the United States.
At the instance of an assistant clerk the
matter was called to the attention of the
court in an informal way. That was as far
as It went. Justice Bradley made no rul
ing whatsoever, and In no wise determined
the question of the status of a native of
Porto Rico with relation to the United
States. OBSERVER.

Mr. Schori and Mr. Bryan.
To the Editor of The Evening Star:
Mr. Schurz does not deny that Mr. Bryan
has the disposition. If elected President, to
order his Secretary of the Treasury to pay
ofT the coin obligations of the government
with silver and thus repudiate In part the
nation's debts, impair Its credit and plunge
the business interests of the country into
a maelstrom of financial ruin.
If Mr. Schurz Is sincere, he would not
support Bryan for the presidency were it
not that, if elected, he would be "bound
hand and foot" by laws which the republi
cans have enacted V>r may enact to pre
vent him from doing the mischief he would.

laws to shut the maniac up so that he
