DECIDES FOR HEARST
New York Supreme Cous't Justice
Sustains Attorney General in Mat
ter of Rehearing.
Albany, N. Y., Feb. 16.-Supreme
Court Justice Fitts late today handed
down a decision sustaining the posi
tion of Attorney General Wm. S.
Jackson in the matter of the proceed
ings in the interest of William R.
Hearst- to oust G. B. McClellan from
the office of Mayor of New York City.
Justice Fitts decided that the attor
ney general had authority to rehear
the application of Hearst for leave to
begin quo warranto proceedings
against McClellan, which was denied
by Mr. Jackson's predecessor, Attor
ney General Meyer.
Justice Fitts also denied the motion
of McClellan's attorney to have the
attorney general adjudged in con
tempt of court on the ground that in
bringing the action upon his own in
itiative to oust McClellan, he violat
ed the spirit, if not the letter of a
temporary injunction of Justice Fitts
forbidding him, pending the hearing,
to reopen the matter of Hearst's quo
After summarizing the history of
the Hearst-McClellan litigation, Jus
tice Fitts says:
"The attorney general of this state
can .maintain an action upon his own
information or upon complaint of a
private person. The authority and
power to be exercised by him is in its
nature official and executive and not
judicial in the sense of finally settling
and determining the rights of individ
uals with reference to the matter in
"The process of this court cannot be
used to connect the actions of the at
torney general in the exercise of his
Justice Fitts denies McClellan's mo
tion to make absolute the temporary
injunction and vacates the latter with
$50 costs in favor of Jackson.
In denying judgment, Justice Fitts
declared that Jackson had full power,
in spite of the pending injunction t3
institute the ouster action against
McClellan. He says:
"In instituting this action against
the relator, McClellan, the attorney
violated none of the proceedings of
the alternate writ of prohibition issued
out of this court on January 5;, 1907.
The acts there prohibited had refer
ence only to an action sought to be
instituted on the complaint filed by
the respondent, Hearst.
"The attorney general has com
menced this action upon his own in
formation; that the statute permits
him to do so, and his action with ref
erence to the same cannot be con
trolled by process of this court."

ITALIAN POET IS DEAD
Poetry Is Read as Dying Man Gasps
for Breath, While Services of
Priest Are Refused.
Bologna, Feb. 15.-Giosue Carducci,
the Italian poet and critic, who has
been ill here for some days past with
influenza and pneumonia, died at 1:30 p
o'clock this afternoon. The poet
rallied this morning and hopes for his
tecovery were entertained, but latet
his condition became alarming and
oxygen was administered.
He is considered as having attained
the height of .modern Italian poetic
genius. Queen Marguerita, who con.
verted Carducci from republicanism
to monarchism, received the news of
the poet's death with much sorrow.
Before losing consciousness Car
ducci asked to have poetry read aloud
to him, saying the rythmetic sounds
alleviated his sufferings. He refused
the spiritual assistance of a priest.
Last year Carducci was awarded
the Nobel prize for literature.
