As heretofore stated Mr. Hayes, ol California, on May 27 introduced a bill in the House of Representatives lo ex tend the limits of the District of Colom? bia so as to take in ail of Alexandria county, but not Alexandria city or that part ot Falls Chutch which lies within the county. The bill was published in lull in the Gazette of Jone 1. Com? menting upon ibis the Gazette of June 1st suggested tbat Mr. Hayes should read the report made to the Senate- on this subject by tbe late Senator Hear. Thia report reads as follows and baa never before been published in full: Constitutionality of the retrocession of a certain portion of the District of Col lurabia ceded to the United States by Virginia. April ll, 1901.? Ordered to be printed. Ali: Hum:, Irom the committee on tbe judiciary, submitted the following ADI i i:-i- RXPOBT. The committee on tbe judiciary, to whom was referred tbe pint resolution (S. K. 60) directing the attorney-general to bring suit to determine the constitu? tionality of the retrocession of that por? tion of the original District of Columbia which was ceded to the United States by the state of Virginia, submit the fol? lowing report: The territory on the other side of tbe Potomac river, including the city ot Alexandria, which was originally a part ol the 10 miles square, was ceded by Virginia for the seat of government. It was retroceded to Virginia by act of Congress in LS46, accepted by Virginia, and thereafter Congress exercised no ju? risdiction over it, except so far as it con? trols the Arlington national cemetery, the experimental farm of tbe I "apart? ment of Agriculture, the military school lor cavalry, and Ihe signal corps, with the land aod buildings occupied by them. It seems to tbe committee that lt ia not expedient tbat this act of retroces? sion should be set aside by Congress, even if Congress have tbe power so to do, without the consent of Virginia. Virginia accepted the transaction, it being understood that it was at the de? sire aud for the benefit of the rational government. She has established in Alexandria the important and intimate relations wbich every state forms for ila own citizens dwelling on her own soil and the people, on the other hand, we pre? sume, feel the loyal and deep attach? ment which auth a relation aaa tea, Bkch a tia' ought not to be wantonly broken, and ought not to be broken at all with? out tbe consent of the parties, except in case of some paramount and overwhel? ming public interest. As to thee suggestion tbat the retro? cession was unconstitutional, it seems to us tbe answer is that from tbe nature of the case it is a political and uot a ju? dicial question, au! that it has been Hot tied by the political authorities alone competent to decide it. lt is like the question, What is tho true state govern? ment, the true and lawful government of a ata'.e lk? tbe question, What ia the true frontier'.' where any dispute exists as to whether territory belongs to us or lo a neighboring foreign country, and many like questions. These are partly eiueationa of law and partly questions eil tact. The questions of law may be settled by the highest court to whom, in the ooarao of ju.iic.nl prnceeelings, they may be taken, ii a less and until tf.it conn e-Uoose to reverse its previous opiuiona. Hut tbe tact must be ?determined in each caae, when it irises, by the jury or other tribunal authorized to find the fact. It would be Utterly in? tolerable lhat territory ahtiuld be held in one case to be a part of Virginia, and in another raaa lo tie a part ol tbe district ot t' ilumtiia, asst-onliiig hu might be held iu the individual csse. Si it seems to us the case ernst be deemee! settled by tbv ecqoieaeeaea in tbe act by Virginia and ot tbe United States, .os maniipstod by tbe conduct of tbe departments of government for mi.re than bait a century. Tbe consequences of holding that tbis retrocession bas been void from the beginning would be very serious. ll it be desirable that Alexandria be? come a part ol the' Matriel of Columbia again, the only way tu ncc mplish lt will be to open negotiations with Virginia and get fer eoaooat. (Stl? Luthir v. Borden, 7 How., 1.) Tbe committee, thrteforc, report sp versely, and recommend tbat tbe re-n.lo? tion be indefinitely postponed ALEXANDRIA LIBRARY. Tbe regular quarterly meeting of the Board of Managers of tbe Alexandria Library Association, eil which Mrs. S L. Monroe is president and Mrs. E. W. Howarei vice president, was held at the home of Miss K nil* Gibson, chairman of book committee, on Tuesday, June 8th, 1909, at 11 a. m., wben ma'ters of interest and importance1 to ibo future of tbe library were discussed and all transactions of a business naturo were unanimously sdjusied. With Mrs. Wil liam li. Smoet as treasurer, the finan? cial condition of the library always makes splendid reading for the members of. the board.

When the trial of Richard Pine* was resumed this morning the police, by di? rection of Judge I'.arley, restricted tbe number of spectators in the courtroom. William J.

Polieeman Sampson was recalled. He stated that Sunday morning, March 7, Pines went to tbe field snd viewed Schultz's body before it was removed. Pines had two dogs witb him, he ssid. The commonwealth then rested its case. Tbe first witness for the defense was Arthur Parker, colored, wbo testified that he would not believe Henry Smitb on oath and Wash Jackson, colored, gave similar testimony. Mr. Nicol objected to any reference to Jackson's testimony in the Midgets case and the court sustained him. C. W.

Mary Grayson, colored, testified tbat she was at Johu Eilis's house about 1 o'clock Saturday, March G, wheo Smitb arrived. The witness said Clara Ellis, a witness in the Johnson case, had gone to Reading, Pa. E. P.

Smith groaned continuously in his sleep, .he said. Soe denied having given Smith 25 cents. She also testified that Smith's she,es were not muddy when he arrived at her bouse. James Earl, colored, corroborated his wife's testimony and denied having told Mr. Brent and ('hie! Goods tbat Smith told him Saturday night that he had knocked a white man in the bead anel wanted tn stay all night. William Willis, colored, who keeps a grocery store corner of Cameron and Fayette streets, testified that Beverley Diega, who works for him, was very much under the influence of liquor th's evening of March Ti.

He traced his alleged move? ments from (i o'clock on tbe evening of March 6, anel said that after eating sup? per at home he went ii Ed. Green's and played pool. As he went in Green's, he said, he saw a woman nearby and spoke to ber. Pines claimed tbat he played several games witb Phil Tolrr, and then laid down and went to sleep. Someone cailed him about clodng time. Sunday morning about 7:80 o'clock he left home with bis two dogs and tbe first he knew of the murder was when Police? man Arrington told him a man had been cat. He said he went to the field and viewed the body sf Schultz.

Pines fae rr called and said tbat h? heil written such a letter. Ida Washirg? >n, a sister of the sc emu! told prac ic?l!y the same story as the mt ther I* th the mother and sister teetin?d, how. si r, (bat they bsd made mi*tak a when they talked to Mr. B-ent and Chief G mila shortly after Pines' ar? rest Under crois examination by a juror, Pines admits that he knew it was un? lawful >o carry a pistol.
