CPE TOWN April 3 correspond
ent has had a long interview with Hon
J Roe-Innes the leader of the British
side in the Cape Parliament on the sub
ject of the treatment of the rebel Dutch
Mr Irenes said that a special tribunal foi
the trial of the rebels was certainly nec
essary Besides the technical difhcultics,
arising from the number of cases he said,
it is not desirable under the piesent cir
cumstances to impose the task of deciding
the cases upon colonial jurors
A tribunal, presided over by an eminent
English judge, would be much more satis
factory to all concerned It should have
the same power In regird to imposing pun
ishment as the Supreme Court of the Cape
and should also have the power of disfran
chising the rebels, either with or without
any other penalty
Mr Rose-Innes continued "Under the
present law a conviction for treason dis
franchises a person permanently hut does
not distinguish the degree of culpability.
The tribunal that 1 refer to should have
the power of fixing the period of disfran
chisement according to the degree of guilt
A special statute is necessary for the crea
tion of this tribunal It is not advisable
nt the present time to summon the Cape
Pnrliunent to piss this necessarv act.
Therefore, the Impel HI Parliament is the
onlv bodv that ha the necessary power.
"The diftlcultv of legislating over the
head of the Cipe Parliament would be
partly removed if the Cape Government
was invited lo initiate the legislation
Thus it Is more than likely that if the
Dutch legislators should reply that it was
inadvisable to summon Parliament the ob
jection to the Imperinl Parliament legis
lating for this colony would he greatly
lessened In all events, immediate action
is necessary."

ecution He denounced what he called
1 l"o iniquitous conduct or Charles W.
j Clark, Senator Clark's son, and said that
i although his denials were relied upon, he-
was a man utteily un'vortby of belief.
Mr Birney closed nt 11.15, and Roger
Fostei, associate counsel for Senator CUrk,
i 0penert the arguraeuts on that tide If
( this had been un ordinary case, he said,
j counsel for defence would have offered no
j evidence, nut would nive reiieu on tne
palpable- perjury bj which it was sought to
maintain the charge agaiust Senator Clark.
He referred to the principal witnesses on
that side, speaking of their 'hang-do
faces," and saying that "their on stores
would have proved them to be unworthy
of belief"
As to tne stories about Blckford and
Charles W Clark, and their attempts to
bribe members of tiie Legislature Mr
Foster contended that even if these btorie3
were all tiue, the could not be used
against Senator Clark unless it was shown
that he lud authorised them, and that the
election was affected by them. He claim
ed that that proposition was within the
rules of common law as adop d in elec
tion cases in England and Canada. Mr
Clark had hid a majority of fourteen, an l
the election could not be st aside except
on evidence that seven of these votes had
Lpn procured by brioTy.
Mr Foster went over the ground that
unless it were proved that Senator Clark
had directly participated in the bribery or
that his friends had bought enough votes
to chaange the result Senator Clark could
not be unseated The attorney mentioned
that these points had not been established,
accordirg to the rules of evidence He read
at length from law books in support of
his contention.

THE TAYITjRITES CONFER.
'I lie .Mill tin Mav lie S.iiunionci to the
Mate Ilonxe.
LOUISVILLE, Ky, April 5 Taylor, at
a conferen-e of Republican leaders which
lasted until early this morning, decided
to resist all attempts of the Democrats
to seize the State House after the Court
of Appeals decides the gubernatorial case
next Monday. In order to prepare fcr as
sault Taylor will call the Barbourville
Company or Militia to Frankfort at once.
This will give Taylor 400 men. Governor
Beckham has 100 men at Frankfort and
four field pieces. This mean3 that Taylor
will resist with force. The decision of
th Court of Appeals on the gubernatorial
case is already conjectured although not
handed down by the justices. It will
doubtless favor Beckham in every way.
hornier Governor Brown said that on next
Tuesday he would go to Washington and
file a writ of error before a Justice of the
United Stiles Supreme Court
Before General Collier and Tay'or te-
turned to Frankfort today, the former
said. "The stories that the Governor re
mained in Morgantown to escape arrest are
false He went there to attend the funeral
of his sister, and stayed over a few days
to attend to some private business He hag
finishi d his business and is now going back
to the capltol to assume the duties of his
office."
"Do you expect the Democrats to storm
the Executive Building if the Court of Ap
peals should decide for Beckham " was
asked.
"I do not know, but I don't believe tney
will," replied Mr. Collier. "They are no
more anxious to be killed than we are
We will defend Taylor to the last dia:h."
"Is there any probability that Taylor
will give up the office and quit his fight If
the Kentucky court decides adversely to
him"
"No, sir, h will not nuit," said Mr
Qollier, emphatically. "He will wait un
til the United States Supreme Coiirt passes
on the case If the hnal court of the land
decides for Beckham, then Mr. Taylor will
step down and out, but not before then.
But I am confident that the Supreme Court
will decide for Mr. Tavlor. We intend to
hold out against the world, the flesh, and
the devil until the Sunreme Court passes
on the case Bluff don't go."
