(Br At?ocl?te<l Prees.)
WASHINGTON, Juno 19.?The time o?
tho Cabinet meeting to-day wa? con?
sumed In large part by tho consideration
of tho legal Questiona Involved In the de?
cision of the Uulled States government
to disregard tho decision of the court of
Virginia and seize the incompleto cruiser
Galveston, at tho Trlgg shipyards In
Richmond, Va. Attorney-Genera] Knox
presented a carefully prepared opinion on
the subject, strongly affirming tho right
of tho government to disregard tho In?
junction granted yesterday In the Virginia
court? which forbids the resumption of
work on tho Galveston, pending a settle?
ment of the claim of tho sub-contractors,
who liavo not been paid for material fur?
In his opinion, addressed to the President,
Attorney-General Knox states that tho
letter of Secretary Moody raises the ques?
tion of the right and power of tho United
States to take Immediate and complete
possession for all purposes of vessel? of
tho United States In course of completion
under contracts with shipbuilders when
there hus been a breach of contract with
the latter. The question, he says, actual?
ly nrfwts three vessels at present and
might at any time involve any or all
public vessel under construction by pri?
vato parties. For thl3 reason ho declares
the subject one of vital importance to
shipping and sovereign interests.
Attorney-General Knox recites the terms
of the contract with the Trlgg Company,
In which is an express recognition of the
paramount title and lien of the govern?
ment, and after quoting at length stat?
utes bearing on the subject of attach?
ments against property in which tho
United State? have or claim an Interest
"The right of a party In ordinary liti?
gation to a release of property from at?
tachment upon giving a bond for indem?
nity, is fundamental. That doctrine was
recognized in tho debate on tho act of
1SG4. It manifestly applies with greater
forco and reason in a case affecting the
government as parens patrlao than where
the interests of private litigations alono
arc Involved. The statutes enables the
government, although not a party or In
general subject to be made such, to In?
tervene without prejudico and to Invoke
"It is especially significant that sec?
tion 37G-3, which is, of course, a part of
tho supreme law of the land and binding
throughout the Union, expressly refuses
to recognize any right whatever to seize
or attAch property of the United States,
or property held, owned, or employed by
it. Quito apart from the statute and be
causa of tho naturo of the case, it Ih im?
possible on primari' grounds to yield as?
sent at all to tho Idea that any Instru?
mentality of the government. In this case
an Instrumentality of prime Importance,
may bo taken Into custody and held under
any adverso authority wlialover. This
view applies, In my Judgment, whether
the adverse oustody should assume to at?
tach upon tho Instrumentality as a com?
pleted thing or upon one In procese of
"Wlillo, however, It is not to be doubtea
for a moment that the United Staes Is
entitled to the undisturbed possession
und control of (Is property and
of property In which it Is In?
terested, to the extent of that interest,
and that this possession and control aia
exempt from the process of every court.

At ?. meeting of the congregation, to
be held to-morrow after the morning
service, the Rev. Egbert Watson Smith,
D. D., a distinguished Presbyterian min?
ister of Greensboro, N, C-, will be elocted
to succeed the Rev. Dr. R. P. Kerr, now
of Baltimore, to the pastorate of the
First Presbyterian Church of this city.
Information obtained yesterday Is to
the effect that the pulpit committee of
the Richmond church has definitely fixed
upon the name of tho North C?.rollnan
for recommendation to the congregation.
Its report will be submitted to-morrow
morning, and that it will be adopted
there can scarcely be a doubt. The gen?
tlemen. It Is understood, were endowed
with plenary powers, and they have gone
about their work slowly and carefully.
Their recommendation will doubtless
meet with the unanimous endorsomont
of the people of tho First Church, who
will promptly extend a call to Dr. Smith,
with reasonable chances of having It
SOMETHING ABOUT HTM.
Dr. Smith is one of the ablest and best
known ministers In the Southern Pres?
byterian Church. He la one of tho finest
of the denomination's speakers and one
of Its most energetic pastors, and his
acquisition to tho Richmond ministry
would be hailed with delight here.
A native of North Carolina, Dr. Bmito
Is yet the son of a man who was born
In Virginia, and wbo during* his lifetime
held many warm friendships In this sec?
tion. His father was Dr. Jacob Henry
Smith, who was for nearly fifty years
the pastor of the First Presbyterian
Church in Greensboro. The present oc?
cupant of that pulpit was born In Greens?
boro on January 15th. 1SC2. He was edu?
cated at Davidson College, being gradu?
ated in 'S2' with the degree of B. A.
Twelve years later this same college con?
ferred the, degree of D. D. upon him.
He attended Union Theological Seminary
In Virginia, and was graduated here In
'SB. In the same year he was licensed
to preach, and. in October. 18?6, he was
ordained by the Presbytery of Orange
For the next two years the young man
was assistant pastor at Greensboro, and
then he took full charge of the West?
minster Church there, serving In this
field until 1800. After this time he en?
tered the evangelistic work of the Synod
of North Carolina, and In 1882 he was
made synodical superintendent of this
work. Between ' 'S3 and '07 he was as?
sistant to his father at the First Church
of Greensboro, upon whose death, In the
latter year, he assumed charge of the
As a preacher Dr. Smith Is regarded as
one of the finest in the South. He hag
spoken here several times, and he is
much admired In this city. He is a mem?
ber of the Board of Trustees of Union
Theological Seminary, and was in Rich?
mond at tho recent commencement of
that institution. Hie work as a pastor in
Greensboro has been of a notable sort.
In that city he occupies with reference to
his people a position parallel to that
borne in Richmond by his distinguished
predecessor at the First Church here.
His congregation are much devoted to
him, and if he leases at all it will only be
after a struggle.
COMMITTEE HEARD HTM.
The comrmHtee of the First Church,
Richmond, or some of the mem?
bers thereof, recently paid a visit
to Greensboro and hoard Dr. Smith

Is Indicated by their recommendation. It

threatened to lynch this said commit?

the Southern Paclf?o roads, being compe?
titors. It was a violation of public policy
and for that reason illegal for the Union
Pacino to acquire and maintain control
of the Southern Pacific by purchasing and
voting Its stock. The proof shows that
It Is within the power of the Union Pa?
rlilo to practice abuse and discrimina?
tion against the Southern Pacific, the
proof shows.that discrimination has been
practiced in making cxpenflltures on the
? Prom the affidavits It was shown that
twice as much monoy had been expended
from tho earnings of the entire Southern
Pacific system, of about 9,000 miles, on th*
S71 miles of the Central Pacific between
Ogden and San Francisco as had been
expended on tho other 8,000 miles and the
Immediate purpose of such expenditures
Is to make the Union Pacific Une a direct
through route from Chicago to San Fran?
cisco by way of Omaha and Ogden, for
the purpose of making It the main com?
petitor in transcontinental business of
other transcootlnental lines. The result
would bo to gri'o ??? Union Pacific a haul
over Its entire line between Omaha and
Ogden, and the Southern Pacific only the
short haul between Ogden and San Fran*
cisco Instead of the lonf? haul over its
mail lines from New Orleans.
It Is estimated that out of about $13,
465,000 expended for betterments, J2S,
