T I It fa certain that Senator Don Cam. fche recent election in the UndHed States, 1 .V ywmB m,, ' r"1"" T mm 'Pennsylvania wtil retire, and appear to think itihati Judge Myers in some extraordinary way was grossly deceived and misled. A motion to va cate the order has 'been made before Judge Myers. Mr. Hurd, solicitor for Kansas, refuses to discuss the legal aspects of the case. An examination of the Kansas statultes reveals a rather .interesting story of the law in ques tion, and the history of the Kansas pol icy regarding aliens. FFhe constitution under which Kansas became a state contained 'this provision: "No distinction shall ever be made between citizens and aliens in reference to purchase, enjoyment and descent of property." And this was in the Wyan dotte constitution. The state began jits career with the theory that it wanted all the foreign capital it could get It proceeded in this theory until 1889. In tihalt year the constitutional provision was repealed. In 1890 the people became much exer cised over .the large body of land owned by Lord Scully, of England, in Marion and Butler counties. In the election m 1890 Mr. H. E. Ridhter, late Repub lican nominee for Ueutanan'i-governor, was a candidate for the senate from the district in which this large ibody of land lay. He was instructed to in troduce a bill which would result in compelling Lord Scully to sell his land. Under the instructions Mr. Richher in troduced the law undfflj. which this at tack on the Santa Fe railroad is made, and is more familiar with Shm purposes of the hill I'Jhan anybody else., r When interviewed in regard to it, he said: I "Lord Scully owned 80,000 acres ofj land in Marlon county and 40,000 acres In Butler, and I wa's instructed to in troduce a bill to txwnpel him to break up his holding. He had a lot of land in Illinois and I 'understood that I'.he alien law there was framed for his benefit and was aimed at the English system of absentee land holding. I had the Illinois action copied verbatim and it was passed hy an almost unan imous vote in the Populist house and Republican senate. The debates on the bill will show that there was absolutely no intention whatever to affect rail roads. I was dumbfounded today when I saw the construction put upon it by Judge Myers. The sole purpose of the law was to prevent such accumulations of land as Lord Scully's." A number of lawyers were asked their views on the alien law today and they all agree that it certainly does not apply to railroads' rights of way. If the statute did apply to railroads, no action could 'be taken under it at pres ent It allows anybody, alien or citi zen, to .foreclose a mortgage and buy in the property and hold it three years. That is what the (Santa "Fe 'bondholders have done. Mr. C. S. Gleed, a director of the Santa Fe, was asked about the suit. and answered indifferently that he supposed some enterprlsng burglar was trying to 'burgle the skock market He was asked what he thought the case would amount to at law. He said he could only think of four or five con clusive legal reasons why the suit could not have a serious termination. Mr. Gleed did not care to go into de tails, but added that the statements now going to tihe public from the chief officials of the Santa Fe are true state ments in every respect. A. A. Hurd, of the Santa Fe law de partment, says: "The commencement of the suit lis no surprise too us, al . though the fact that a receiver waa ap pointed by Judge IMyers without noUce to any party in interest is a surprise. I have known Judge Myers for a num ber of years and have always had a very high opinion of Mm and am therefore surprised that, after the de cision of the supreme court in the case the Venezuelan country commiss.on ,of tot ued States to JTiT VEToirf fS that for the present at least ,it would , of Jameg wtta- ,win him. senator Voorhees of. abandon the further prosecution of its out jg .predecessors it ia Indiana, who has been in poor health pleased him, but he could have left the ratio indefinite. Has ratio meant the right of any one to repudiate half his obligations without this 'bettering any one in the future. But the (victors will do well to realize that apart from bi metallism there is a strong growing feeling in America against huge ac cumulations of capital in the hands of individuals, obtained by means of trusts which are really monopolies, and gambling with cogged dice in railroads. "A greedy plutocracy, supported by an armed force, cannot hold its own against the rights and well being of all. I am in no wise certain tlhat hod I been an American, I should not have voted the Democratic ticket, had It not .been that I regard all tampering with the coinage of a country injurious to all, and it does mot strike me that Mr. Bryan is u? to the presidential mark." Jjabooichere devotes a page and a hall of Truth to the Castles' case, during which, he says: "I learn that some magistrates favored a heavy sentence and a few were for releasing the pris oner. Had she .been released on. the ground of mental infirmity she could not have ibeen ithe gainer, for she would have 'been eenit to a criminal lunatic asylum according to the law Bince 1883. .The sentence seems to me 'light considering ithe circumstances. I do not believe in kleptomania, for it only seems to attack the rich., and if it really exists, I am sure the .punishment of every iperson stealing while suffer ing therefrom would have a very de terrent effect upon its spreading." Mr. Labouchere, after a sarcastic ref erence to the offense and the acquittal of another wealtihy woman lor stealing hotel candlesticks, observed: "On the morning of Mrs, Castle's sentence a seamstress and a governess were sen tenced at the same session to nine and six months' hard labor for stealing a fur necklet, and neither had ever been previously convicted. The governess fainted at the sentence. No medical experts testified- that they were klep tomaniacs. (No eminent council sug gested that they would suffer in health by confinement. No one pitied them and no one signed a petition to the home secretary to shorten their sen tences. What matteds how a .poor, fainting, friendless governess or half starved seamstress suffers? Give them hard labor and plenty of it! What if their health, is injured? Let them die. Let (Mrs. Castle out of prison. Sir Matthew White Ridley.

The condemned man was escort ed from the jail to the scaffold in the court house yard by two depulty sher iffs, and three minutes later the black cap had been adjusted and the drop fell. There was not even a tremor of a muscle and fourteen minutes later the pulse had ceased to beat and life was pronounced extinct Five minutes later the body was cut down. The crime for which the deceased suffered the death penalty was the murder of a woman named Isabel Mon toya de Chavez by shooting with a pistol, by which means three wounds were inflicted upon her, resulting in death sixteen days later. The mur derer swore upon the witness stand that they had previously been lovers and claimed that upon the day of the tragedy he and the woman met by ap poiiniament to a secluded spelt at which the shooting occurred, where they were then surprised 'by the woman's -husband, who first fired two shots at him and then killed his wife. This state ment, however, was conitradiclied be yond doubt by the testimony of other witnesses.

Later the wounded woman made a dying state ment an the presence of Garcia, in i ley's campaign. "BLACK JACK" IS BUSY. Holds Up Huachuca Siding Sattiurday Night TUCSON, Ariz., Nov. 10.
