The majority of the United States supreme court very projierly took the view that in a condition fiot con tern plated or dreamed of by the frameis of the constitution there should lie. a liberal u;-e of common sense in u.striiinir that instrument fur present purjioses. In the circuit court at I ndianapolis y.isterday the constitutionality o t je mortgage exemption law, enact ed by the legislature two years ufjo, was called in question. It was c n te d I that tin .aw wo k dtineipil ; that if one man txrroved $."0d an gave a mortgage on his property a security, he would be entitled to ex eruption, whil his neighlsr might boirow the same amount and give a i ote, and still have to py full taxes on his property. The iint seems to be well made and it is quite proba bhj the law will be declared uno-n stitutior.al whenever the question is brought before the supreme court. The state supreme court has de cided that if the school trustees of a city refuse to enforce an order adapt ed by the city and tounty Imkw iIs of health relating to children attending school who have not been vaccinated they can be forced to observe the law by writ of mandamus. In accord with tlits decision the Indiana health olieers at Indianapolis yesterday "passed a resolution indorsim' the ac iMT all vliiumu u vaccinated and coining from infected homes be excluded from the public schools Ou the eve of Memorial Day it i altogether tittin that sjicci.il at teution should be given to the em bleiu of our liberties, I he America Hag, the "stars and striies," "ol glory. Notwithstanding the fac that this is the youngest of the grea nations of the earth our ll.ig is th oldest national banner. It w.i adopted by the Continental eongro June 1 1, 1777, in a resolve "that tin tligof the United States be thirteen stries, alternate nil and white; tha the union be thirteen white stars in a blue field, representing a new con stellation. " The live tointcd star i said to have lcen suggested bv Mrs John lloss who kept a small uphold ery store in arcn street, 1 hlla delphia. It is also said that she made all the Amerieau it igs used by the government for sixty years. The desigu adopted by the Conti te ital c ingress was maintained till 17: I when congress altered the tl.ig to consist of fifteen red and white stripes, with a cor re ponding number of tars, arranged in three rows o live, so as to represent the two additional states, Kentucky and Vermont, that had been taken intt the I 'iiiou. I!ut the continue.! erea nou oi new commouweaitus soon agaiu destroyed the numerical corre sjondeuee lietween the stars anil stripes and the states. During the twenty-three years following IT'.W, ienLesse, Ohio, uisiana, Indiana and Mississippi were admitted to political sisterhood. A eongres sional committee recommended the addition of five more stripes and five more stars; but this was a process which evidently could not be carried much further. It was then suggest ctl that, instead of being increased, the stripes should be reduced to thirteeu, the nuiuler of the origina' states, but that the stars should keep puce with the growing manlier of American ivinuiou wealths. And this was a loplcd as the ivrtuanent design of the tl.g.

THURSTON Repudiates the Indianapolis Sentinel's Representations and Defines His Own Position on Suicide. K-liUir Rirhmond Pail lium. Personally I make no defense against the Indianapolis Sentinel s malicious and false representations concerning my utterances which it has seen tit to jmlule around amongst the ministers and doctors of ludian ajiolis, but I do earnestly protest against its villainous attempt to as sassinate the good name of The American Association of Physio Medical Physicians and Surgeons, because of the sentiments of but one member of that body. The actual facts, as Mr. Gani- tnage's pajier and the transactions f the association will show, are as tot lows:" Mr. A. E. Gammage, an able law yer and medicolegal exjiert or Chi ca'o. read a very scientific and re earchful naoer on "The Causes of Suicide and Insanity." There is not an utterance in the paper upholding suicide even from a scientiue stand point, and not a sentiment that any candid, lair ininaea ersoneouiu con strue as antagonistic to religion. The paper was read during the last hour of the session when iniisirtant business matters incident to the final close of such meetings was pendiui;, and consequently the piper was not discussed at all. In moving to re ceive and publish the paper witl the transactions of the asso ciation the writer took ojcasiou to remark that after twenty years careful study of suicide from a purely scientific standiHiint, he bad come t believe that when an individual had U'couie diseased and degenerated both physically and mentally, beyon the possibility ol a cure, if he desired and attempted to commit suicide, n should not be prevented; that to arrest and imprison such a ixrson for attempting suicide, so loujf as he was sane, was a greater injustice t himself and community than the sui cidist was attempting; if he was in sane, then he should be r strained from this as from any other violent act. Again, if a man had committed a cold b!oo ed and premeditated mur er from which there was no possibility of his escaping the death penalty and then committed suicide, he did a good act in relieving the communi ty of a criminal, the sheriff from be coming a murderer, and the state an exiiense. These; were my utterances and represent my sentiments, and stand ready to defend them when a.- sailed by fair, scientific and logical argument. I alone should be held resionsible for what I said, anil not this great Ixniy of earnest, honest scientific, Christian gentlemen. J. M. Tin hston. HflEE-ETlTF. Report of Investigation Made Since the Ko komo Meeting. 1 he following reiMirt has been made t the "House heirs" by an heir who resides in Kentucky and who was appointed at the late lvokomo meet ing to investigate the House estate claim: To Whom it May Concern: The undersigned was apjioiuted by a meeting of the House heirs at Koko mo, Ind , April K5, l'.MIl, to investi gate and when anything material was discovered to rejort to said heirs.

In every case where we have been referred to records or naixrs. we have found nothing, except, perhaps, f mily history, and no lease, grant or other leiral record has been brought to our notice. I speak thu plainly that vou may not build any false hopes, but at the same time we will prosecute our investigations and let you bear by circular only when anything new develops. If you can help by giving facts, write me. Io not expect personal letters. Keep cool, it we have a claim against the government and can prove it, we will get it.

Fear That Importers May Seize Ad vantage of Conditions to Cheat Uncle Sam. Cbieajro. May iS. Hurins the trip of the presidential train eastward jester day the published riKrts of the opin ions of the supreme court in the iu sular cases were discussed with jrreat interest ly tlie president and his -ab-inet. The decision in the Ie Lima case, if followed in the Philippine ease, as it is assumed it will Ik-, might result in the calling of au extra session of cunjrress. In the Ik Lima case the court decided that the duties collected on Porto Iiimu goods In-fore congress enacted the Foraker law were illegal aud must le refunded. It is presumed that the court. following the same lines of reasoning, will decide that the duties collected on goods from the Philippines were also illegal and are subject to free entry into the I'uited States until congress acts as it has already done in the case of Porto Kico. Such a decision would mean not only the refunding cf duties heretofore col lected, but would open the jxtrts of the United States to merchandise and goods of every description from the Philippines until congress meets iu Ie femjer. It is palpable that importers might take advantage of this to ship goods into the United States through the Philippines and thus defraud the government of its revenues. Whether the danger from this source is great enough to warrant the calling of con gress in extra session is one which will Ih decided only after full deliliera tion. It is possible, however, that this danger may have been already obvi ated iu the enactment of ttie SjMKiuer legislation relegating temporarily to the president the power to govern the Philippines. This may be considered nu act of congress within the meaning of the I'ownes decision affirming the constitutionality of the Foraker law. But it is a delicate quest Ion and one ! which the president and his advisers will consider in all its bearings liefore coming to a conclusion. The members of the cabinet decline to discuss the subject for publication. They united in a message of congratulation to for- ; mer Attorney liencral lirlggs, wlio prepared and presented the govern ment's case to the supreme court. TH KY WKUU DIsAPPOlNTKI) Porto It ieans Had Looked tor An- X liucisiou. When the full report of the Ie Lima case was published there was evidenc ed a general feeling of disappointment among Porto Ilicau merchants who had hoped that the court's decision would give them a year's free trade. I'orto IMcans are reluctant to believe that the full report Is true. The concensus of opinion of the mat ter seems to be that the Porto Uican legislature should be convened in ex tra session to declare I'orto Ilico self supporting with the collection of cus toms on imports between I'orto Itico and the United States. A general spir it of eoiuplaiut that all the supreme court s decisions were against Porto Ilico is noticeable. When San Juan merchants were questioned on the sub ject they manifested much regret at the outcome, as they had IioihhI to have refunded all the moneys paid under the 15 per cent application of the IMngley duties. It was generally expected that the court's decisions would grant Irto Uico free trade and her citizens full citizenship and con stitutional privileges. When told if the latter provisions had Iwen granted the internal revenue laws of the United States would lie applied to the islands and that all fnuds and ens- j toms thereunder eolh-cted would lie de posited in the finleral treasury, all Porto Uieans questioned in the mat ter acknowledged that this would be bad aud that their present status was preferable, as they did not lieliove that the island would stand the collection of the United States internal revenue, and that such collection if attempted would necessitate an even heavier property tax for the maintenance of I'orto Rico. Only a few Porto Itican business men understood the importance of the supreme court's decisions. Those who are bankers predict an immediate re vival of business now that the status of the country has been decided. Will I-Jiclude Secret Society Men. pes .Moines. ia.. .May "!.

That the port of London Is the most picturesque Hirt in the world Is unde niable, far out at sea you may Ix-hold the shipping cf the world all converg ing; toward the entrance to the narrow channel that makes the lower reaches of the Thames navigable to ocean go ing vessels. Wonderful as the sight Is by day. its beauty and Its Impressive ness are multiplied tenfold In the rud dy afterglow of a summer's evening or the velvety luminous darkness of a frosty winter's night. Hut unfortu nately for the artist the picturesque is of little avail in the utilitarian days, and the port of London has for years been falling from Its proud position ns the facile prlnceps of the shipping cen ters of the world. Years ago. in its heydey, the jiort ot London was far and away the most tonnage or number of vessels or value of cargo, the shipping passing through the port was not merely far ahead of all the other ports, but was more than double that of any other Krt of the world. Two years ago New York equal ed and this year bids fair to surpass the old marine capital f the world. Other ports are rapidly creeping up. Even In our own country Glasgow and Liverpool are becoming formidable ri vals. Hamburg, Halt iuiore, Marseilles abroad are all gaining on the Hriiish capital. These indications of feebleness de manded immediate attention. Ist year a royal commission was appointed to Inquire into the causes of this decline In supremacy.

It is a pity and au Injustice that th territtHial government does not print more documents lu the Sauisli lan guage for distribution among the Span ish frpcakiug citixeiis of New Mexico. It Is a ctmdition, not a theory, that confronts the territory. There are many titUens within Its lrders who speak none but the Spanish laug-.iase. This Is not tluir fault, but the fault of the government, that bus neglected them for Ti years. This condition ex ists. It should le eased much a possible, and as many oflieial docu ments in the Spanish language as hs Kible should lie distribute! lu order to enable them to nuderstiUid the matters of territorial government and to give them a knowledge of what Is going on. To be sure, newcomers, to New Mexi co scout this Idea, but that makes no difference. The condition must be met, and it should In met lu the most acceptable manner, aud that la by good public schools, by eltlcient higher edu cational institutions and distribution of othcia! documents concerning the government of the territory among the iieople who Rin-uk nothiug but the Spanish language. The Tinted States government now spends millions of dollars In I'orto Itica and the Philippine Islands to enlighten the MopIe of those issossions of ours. Why not sMnd a few thousand dollars In New Mexico, whose people have ben treated as stechildrcn by the nation since lSd? Had this govern ment done one-twentieth of what It has done for the Filipinos or Porto Uieans. commencing, say, lu ISoO, to day this would be a prsporous. strong and important commonwealth thor oughly Americanized. As it is. while It Is truly American and loyal to the government, ns the people of the territory have proved iu numerous wars with Indians, the war between the states and the Spanish American war, still there are many people who do not speak the English laiivrut ge.
