At ihepn-seut time, although the diocesan

At least the will remain so until thu sit

or the bishops of the llaltimore diocese, to

most prominent city or the diocese, but

It is the iwo'thlnls rule which has been
responsible for the election ot so many

THE TWO-THIUDS RULE.
The two-thirds rule Is also responsible
for another peculiar situation, in which a
candidate, although he was elected by ,i
majority of both the clergy and tlie lay
delegates, ueter becomes bishop. It hap
pened that be was first elected by tho
clergy, receiving twt-thirdsof the totes.
This tune he was rejected by the lay

The witness snlil: "He passed by one
night when I was on the stoop and said
You seem to lie presumptuous. You are

Then the wiliie-s told llyrnes that he

fifteen months and paid Byrnes regular!.
Ex Inspector McLaughlin had sent lor
him onet line and told him he wanted money.

Williams. He saiil that when the police

"Joint" was closed he got the tip In ad

roof, anil when they called tho rooms were
vacant. The Jordan to whom he referred In
his testimony was Supt. Jordan. He said
that Byrnes' share of the keno game was
between $200 and $400 a month.

Action on tho Nicaragua canal will be
one of the first questions pressed on the
attention of the nest Congress. The sub
ject has been canvassed by letter and oth
erttlsc and there is little doubt that a
canal bill will be promptly introduced and
passed. What tlie President will have to
say on the subject in his message to Con
gress Is a matter that causes much con
jecture. A prominent Democratic Senator, whose
position tntitles Ids views to weight, this
morning expressed tlie belief that the
President would advocate the construction
of the canal, but also expressed the fear
that there would be in that message an
Implied recommendation that Great Brit
ain be invited to Join with the United Ktateg.
In the great work.
This Senator stated that our relations
with Great Britain appeared to hlni to be
drifting In that direction; that such a
policy was advocated by Ambassador
Bayard and that it might be outlined In the
forthcoming nicst-age. Congress, this gen
tleman added, would never pass a bill
providing for tho Joint Interest of the
English government in the work which he
belieted the United States was destined

TANGLE OP INCIDENTS.
It will be- seen that this is an infreni..n.
tangle or Incidents, contrived ror the pur
poseotillustratingmany rightsnud w rongs,
and of leading to information upon points
that may arise In actual existence.
The (silutlnn states, to begin with, that
of late years pursuit or a merchant vessel
beyond the marine league constituting
territorial waters, and arrest on the high
sens, have been considered lawful where
".-jmrs.ua. ami seizure roran orrense com
mitted athe port are parts of one contin
uing act. The three-milellmitand theordl
nary freedom of the high seas uru not to be
IH-rverled by the ortc nder to tecure his es
cape. Thus tbc-selzureot the Americanmer
chantman bj the- vessel from Taleahuano
as all right.
Next authorities arc cited to show that,
although foreign-built and not registered,
she w ,es American property, as atte-sted by
licr papers, and as much entitled to our
flag and protection as ir she had been a reg
ularly documented vc-mcI. For that Tea
ton the hauling down of her rlag ber.ire
shs.lffil changed ownership, as the result
of comlera nation .1 nd sale 11 nde r due process
of law, was an outrage, and demanded a
protest both ashore and afloat, with a re
port lo the Washington authorities In case
rcdre .s was not awarded at once.
Still, tin-seizure of the vc-smI by our naval
officer while under foreign Jurisdiction
would have been a violation of the sover
eignly of the couiitrt and aii act of bosill
ity bordering upon war. Hence he would
have hail to decline to obey the too im-lHilsIn-Instructions,
of the minister to take
Ik r nwny by force- on account of the indig
nity committed in haullnr down li. r n.i.
Tboiiierchnntmanlnsucha case is entitled
to a fair trial, and our minister nml imt-nt
officer Mioqld co-oik rate lu seeurii g this.
OUT OF THE KIG.
As to the affair with the coxswain, he
was all right In defending himself .mil
throwing his assailant nut or the gig, al
though, or course, this assailant should
have been picked up if In danger of drown
ing. The attempt to arrest the cotswain
atioard ship was unlaivr.il, and the naval
orficer did his duty in rcfulng to allow
tlie service or the warrant there, but the
arrest ashore was ltwf.il, and .1 trial Mimikl
hate been submitted to ir the authorities
had a question as to where the assault
took place, ir they csincsled that It oc
curred on the gig. the naval officer should
have called for the diseh.irr, ur th ...
swain, and ir this was rertied the mat
ter would have been one for dint., in.nl-
complaint, wbik- in the meantime a trial
should have been at once insisted upon, iiy
that time the two governments ifmihl imri.
taken up the threads.
In Situation II, the .fricer, on tombing
at bandy Point, In the Straits or Magellan,
rinds i.-iat the Chilean governor has re
ceived instrut lions to consider the Straits
as territorial waters, since in sjime places
they are less than one- marine league from
each side in width, and he has detained by
force several American, English, aud Ger
man vessels rrom passing through. They,
accordingly, ask our cruiser ror help. At
that time there are no hostilities: but
while the cruiser is at Sandy Toint the
unoriginal savages threaten a massacre,
nud the governor asks ror aid from a land
ing party. He also orders several American
citizens, as resident traders and property
owner", to join n inilitart company to de
fend the town: but this ther refuse to del,
ami appeal to our naval officer.
Presently the Arturo Prat and two fast
cruisers arrive from Valparaiso, aud, as the
convicts at large are Inclined to revolt,
martial law Is declared, and the property
of American residents is seized for uilhtarv
purposes. They resist this seizure anil are
tried nnd punished by a military commis
sion. Finally the Chilean con uanders an
nounce that they haveorders, under certain
contingencies which have arrived, to re
quest the departure of our cruiser from
Sandy Point and the Straits, nnd. if this
request should not be complied with, they
would have to use force.
OFFICER'S FIRST DUTY.
Here Is another c leverly framed set of com
plications. In unraveling them the first
point made clear Is that, although there
may bo a width ot less than six marine
miles between shores admitted to be Chilean
on either side of the straits, yet those straits
form a iiSHmercial highway for the world,
and cannot lawfully bo dosed. A naval
officer's first duty was, therefore, to es
cort tho Americini ships through the straits
and to allow the foreign merchantmen the
facility ot a freo passage, as a matter of
courtesy, they presumably accompanying
Next, on returning to 8andy Point It was
proper to laud a force at the governor's re
quest to defend the place against the-Pata-goulan
savages, and our officer should also
have Informed the resident Americans that
they must do their part In defending It,
especially with their lives and property at
stake. On the same ground, when martial
law was declared, the American residents
should have surrendered without objection
such property as could be turned to account
for the common good.
Exactly why tho Chileans demanded the
departure of tho American cruiser docs
not appear. Possibly the officer may have
iniscaKcu nis uuiy jn one. or the points
the abstract right of Chile to request the de
parture Is plain, and yet the request was
unfriendly and so gross a violation of
comity as to be almost an act of hostility.
remaps tncsircngtn with which this point
is statea implies that the naval officer per
formed bis duty perfectly In regard to the
troubles ashore, but bad made himself
obnoxious by escorting the vessels through
the straits, which also was his plain duty.
However, his proper course was lo retire
before a superior naval force, making a
formal pretest, and on reaching Monte
video to report to Washington all the faits.
The assumption is that our government
would not pause unlil It had secured neu
tralization and freedom ot passage for the
S. B. Donchian, of Hartford, Conn.
