AN OLD WAR QUESTION
REVIVED BY REAGAN'S SPEECH
Watterson Seems Able to Prove That
the Confederacy Is Very
LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 11.—Mr.
Henry Watterson publishes in the Cour
ier-Journal tomorrow morning? an elab
orate reply to Judge Reagan's denial
that Mr. Lincoln contemplated payment
for the slaves under certain conditions,
and that he said to Mr. Stephens: "Let
me write 'Union' at the top of this page
and you may write below It whatever
Mr. Watterson sustains his position by
profuse documentary evidence. He
quotes Mr. Stephens' account of the
Fortress Monroe conference and pro
duces a joint resolution prepared by Mr.
Lincoln to prove that Indemnity for the
slaves was contemplated. He cites sev
eral credible witnesses, all of whom de
clare, as Mr. Watterson declares him
self, that Mr. Stephens did make the
statement ascribed to him.
In closing, Mr. Wattersom says: "Mr.
Watterson regrets that Judge Reagan
has seen fit to recur to a question he
thought was settled. He was surprised
by the passage in Judge Reagan's
Nashville address, but he concluded not
to revive an issue which, aside from
seeming ungracious to a fraternal oc
casion cannot, In the nature of the case,
be very agreeable as a retrospection or
profitable as a subject of present dis
cussion. The Insistence of Judge Reagan
in keeping it alive and urging a review
which is contradicted by the best and
amplest testimony leaves him no other
alternative. He is just as free from any
Just accusation of a purpose to mis
report any southern aspect of the his
tory as was the judge himself, but he has
no personal motive, as Judge Reagan
has, for making a special plea In behalf
of any particular view. It is a fact that
within less than sixty days of its total
collapse, the confederacy might have
madie honorable and advantageous terms
of peace on the basis of the restoration
of the Union, and It is a fact that com
missioners sent to Fortress Monroe re
fused to treat on other terms than the
recognition of the independence of the
"Whether It was best to let the col
lapse come is another matter. That it
was coming, was, in point of fact, immi
nent, and was well known in official cir
cles at Richmond. That within less
than sixty days it actually came, Is his
tory. Whether it was best for the con
federate president and authorities to
take time by the forelock and with a
full knowledge of the impending dis
aster before their eyes, to seek some
other settlement than that of the lm
-1 possible recognition of the independence
of the confederacy, or to leave t)fie bot
tom literally to dtrop from the tub, the
confederate armies at the mercy of Grant
and Shermani, the confederate capital
abandoned and the confederate govern

speculative philosophy which we do not
care at present to explore."

THE LIGHT THAT FAILED
Why Officer Ben Bobbins Did Not
Catch a Burglar
As Officer Ben Robbins was patroling
his beat on North Main street in the
gloomy hour between 12 aiudl oclock this
morning he was startled by a sudden
flash of light which appeared Imthe rear
of a hardware store situated Just north
of First street. In an instant the light
died down again, and the conviction
forced itself upon him that a burglar
was operating inside and it had been an
Inadvertent flicker of his "glim" that
had been seen. After watching a few
moments the patrolman's patience was
rewarded by seeing a second flash, and
he Immediately began, preparations to
capture the midnight marauder.
Deputy Constable Tom Qulnn hap
pening along, he was stopped and sta
tioned In the rear of the store to prevent
an attempt at escape in that direction,
while Robbins cautiously effected an
entrance, revolver in hand, ready for
any emergency, Slowly he. crept to
ward the rear of the store in the dark
ness, when suddenly from above his
headi again the tell-ttale light flashed
out. Then the whole thing was ex
plained and the mystery was solved. In
stead! of Its being the "glim" at a burg
lar, the cause of all the excitement was
an Innocent and Inoffensive Incandes
cent lamp, which had evidently been left
lighted) when the store was closed. In
some way the wires had become crossed
and) the current was shunted off, extin
guishing the lamp. The swaying of
the wire would occasionally allow the
temporary passage of the current,
whereupon the light would flash out.
Robbins didn't say much when he
found out how matters stood, but he
thought a good deal, and soms of his
thoughts would) not bear publication.

Governor Franklin of Ari»
zona Is in Trouble
ISSUES TOO MANY PARDONS
JOBBERY IS CAROED AT THE RE
Lashley's Execution at Tucson the
First Hanging in Arizona for
Special Correspondence to The Herald.
PHOENIX, Aria., July 9.—Arizona is
still without a governor save the gold
bug article placed In office by Cleveland.
McCord's name seems to be Just about
where It was seven weeks ago, In the
senate committiee on territories, and the
senate ]■ within, a week of adjourn
Presidsnt McKinley has said he will
make no Important appointments till the
senate shall again be in session next De
cember. All this, taken together, sus
tains one of two views hare entertained:
(1) That the president is satisfied with
the financial views of the Incumbent and
will allow him to serve out his term; (2)
that Governor Franklin Is to be at once
removed, should the senate fall to con
firm McCord. In this latter contingency
Charles Akers, they new secretary of the
territory, would occupy, pro tempore,
the executive office and honors.
A LONESOME GOVERNOR
Franklin Is not admired at home. In
the first place, he is not a regular Demo
crat and was offensive last campaign In
his disloyalty to the party and In his
references to the local party leaders.
He Is not a man of tact. It is possible
he Is, as he says he Is, a man of Integ
rity and honor, but that's no reason, for
calling other Democrats thieves and
other naughty names that don't sound
even as well as "thief."
Affidavits and charges are now dull
In. the local market, but Just at present
-here is an extra boom in these commod
ities. Tho antl-McCord market is fully
stocked, and so the more attention is
being paid Governor Franklin. Yet
Democrats are raising most of the fuss
and what they demand Is Franklin's
removal, lnetanter. The basis of the
latest batch of charges sent on to Wash
ington is that the governor and T. J.
Wolfley, Republican, as the majority of
the territoral board of control, are at
tempting a petty piece of Jobbery in
connection with the territorial reform
school at Flagstaff. The last legislature
voted a tax of about $30,000 for the com
pletion of the structure and designated
a new use for it, that it should be a
branch territorial insane asylum.
Though only $7000 of the fund will be
available before next tax season, the
governor and Citizen Member Wolfley
have started to spend it. And this, de
spite the warmest protests from the
board's third member. Auditor Leitch.
WILL HAUNT THE JUDGE
The most important Item, of flhe week
in Arizona has been the hanging at Tuc
son of Philip Lashley, the negro sergeant
who murdered Private Sanden at Fort
Huaohuca in April, 1596. The president
refused to commute the sentence, though
a petition for such commutation, was
presented him signed by United States'
Attorney Blllnwood, by the governor and
three of the four supreme Justices who
reviewed the case. The Justices who tried
the case. Judge Bethune, seemed to be
the only territorial official who believed
Lashley should hang. The execution was
accomplished yesterday. The negro
made it notable by disgusting profanity,
by dancing a "break-down" on the trap
and by the assurance that he surely
would return In the spirit to haunt the
judge and jury.
This Lashley 'hanging Is the first In, the
territory since the execution of Dilda, in
Prescott, seven years ago. This, no
doubt, seems incredible to readers of the
Detroit Free Press and Puck, but the
fact remains that Arizona has by no
means any penchant for necktie par
ties. It is lamentably true there are
many murderers in the territorial prison
whose due was a clear drop from a well
tied knot, and still more lamentable is
the fact, and I have the information from
ex-United States Marshal Meade, that
an average "life" term in the Arizona
penitentiary is four years and eight
months. Some people think this suffi
cient justification for lynching, others
think it might be easier to correct the
evil by hanging a governor or two.
DOWN ON PARDONS
Gila county is the political subdivision
of Arizona wherein lie Pleasant valley
and Tonto basin, those native haunts of
the cowboy, far from civilization's taint.
Presumably this is why her citizens ob
ject to unstrained mercy, font-like
springing at the prison's gate. So the
grand jury of Gila county roasted
Governor Franklin in its last report.
The roasting was a scorcher, yet since
the report the governor has appended
his signature to still two more pardons.
A grapevine dispatch from Yuma
brings the following, unanimously
adopted at the last meeting of the Mur
derers and Burglars' Protective asso
ciation, a club composed of the haut
ton among the guests of the territorial
Whereas, The Gila county grand jury,
in a cowardly spirit of public safety and
good morals, has wantonly attacked the
good Judgment and sound discretion of
our esteemed friend and benefactor,
Governor B. J. Franklin; and,
Whereas. The aforefaid body of mean
spirited and law-abiding citizens of
Gila county has sought to detract from
the renown and applause that Governor
Franklin has gained by Issuing compli
mentary pardons to many members of
our exalted order; and,
Whereas, The action of these, low

the weak-kneed populace of other coun

comforts upon the more ambitious and
Industrious members of our craft; there

elements of Arizona society upon our

call upon all scoundrels and blacklegs,

nounoe in no uncertain words and to ex
press emphatically their disapproval of
the document recently issued by the
Gila county grand Jury concerning the
abuse of the pardoning power by our
friend, guide and philosopher. Governor
J. B. Franklin; and, be it further-
Resolved, That we point with pride
to the record of forty pardons issued lr.
little more than one year by our noble
patron, Governor Franklin, and we cal!
particular attention to the fact that

our most vicious, valued and active
members; and, be it further.
Resolved, That the remark of Judge
Hawkins of Prescott, in sentencing our
loyal compatriot, Jail breaker, murder

AT THE THEATERS
LOS ANGELES THEATER—The Col
umbia Comic Opera company opens its
third week tonight with a performance
of "Girofle-Girofla." Ethel Balch will
have a fine opportunity in this sprightly
opera for the display of her versatile
talent, and the comedians, Henderson
and Kunkel will revel in their chances.
The company is fully competent to give
an excellent performance.
A week from Wednesday Frohman's
Lyceum Theater company will open at
the Los Angeles theater for four nights,
during which they will produce a reper
toire consisting of "The Mayflower,"
"The First Gentleman of Europe," and
"The Prisoner of Zenda." The engage
ment promises to be a notable one, not
only for the character of the plays, but
also of those who will present them.
The company includes James K. Hack
ett, with. May Mannering as leading
lady. Mr. Hackett's first notable suc
cess in New York was as Rudolf in "The
Prisoner of Zenda," since which time he
has become New York's favorite on the
stage. As George, Prince of Wales, in
"The First Gentleman of Europe," Mr.
Hackett has a part suitable to him from
every standpoint. With Mary Manner
ing, with whom Mr. Hackett shares the
honors, together with such artists as
Charles Walcot, Edward Morgan, Wil
liam Courtleigh, Joseph Wheelock, jr.,
Frank R. Mills, John Findlay, GeoTgeW.
Middleton, R. J. Dustan. Mrs. Charles
Walcot, Mrs. Thomas Whiffen, Maude
Odell, Elizabeth Tyree. Grace Root and
others, a guarantee of a notable engage
ment is assured. "The Mayflower,"
which will receive its initial presentation
here, comes with the approbation of the
eastern critics, who are enthusiastic In
"The First Gentleman of Europe" is
really the first original play by Mrs.
Frances Hodgson Burnett, whose "Lit
tle Lord Fauntleroy" was dramatized by
her from her own novel of that name.
In "The First Gentleman of Europe" Mr.
Hackett, as the Prince of Wales, who,
when in search of adventure, was known
to masquerade as "Colonel Ffolliott" of
the Dragoons, has a part particularly
suited to his spirited style. Mary Man
nering as the pursued Daphne endears
herself to men and women-alike. Maude
Odell as Lady Sark is said to give her
performance the subtlety and cunning
brilliancy of the character after whom
she is modeled, i. c., the Countess of.
Jersey. Edward J. Morgan as a man
of letters lends to the character the dig
nity and repose so necessary to the part,
while that prime favorite, Charles Wal
cot endows the apoplectic father of the
starving poet with every requisite to
make it true to life. Daniel Frohman
has endowed the play with a magnificent
production. All the plays will be mounted
with the original scenery and accesso

No Respecter of Persons
When Admiral de Horsey, at Port
Royal, was one night returning to his
flagship alone, his way to the boat led
across the barrack square. A black
sentry of a West India regiment
halted him at the gate with, ♦'Who goes
dar?" Great was the admiral's annoy
ance to find he had neglected to get the
password. "That's all right," he said,
carelessly, hoping to overcome the man's
scruples by Indifference; "you know who
I am." "T>unno nobpdy, sax," replied
the nigger, pompously; "you can't go In
dar." "Why, I'm Admiral de Horsey!*
"Well, you can't go In," was the reply.
"I don't care If you's Admiral de Don
key, I don't."—Household Words.

large notice, "Go around the other way."
