Chief Just ire Fuller mill Justices Field and Lamar Dissent From the Decision. Their Reasons Hill Feuding By Which State May Frohlbit the Importation of Liquors. THE EDMUNDS ACT. Held to He Constitutional By the Supreme Court. Washington, May 21. The supreme court of the United States has rendered an opinion of vital interest to the Mor mon church, in the suit of the Church of Latter Day Saints against the United States, which conies here on appeal from the decision of the Rupreme court of Utah in favor of the United States. The court affirms that judgment. The case grows out of the passage of the Edmunds anti-polygamy law by the Forty-ninth congress. This law, among other things, dissolved the Mormon church corporation, annulled its charter, directed the appointment of a receiver to wind up its affairs, and escheated to the United States all the real estate owned by the church in excess of $50, 000 which was not on the date of the passage of the act held for purposes of worship or burial. When the United States, under the terms of this act, be- fan proceedings to confiscate about 250,000 worth of property belonging to the church the Mormons immediately entered suit to have the Edmunds law declared unconstitutional. It was ar gued before the supreme court, in their behalf, that congress, by the dissolution of the church corporation, had assumed judicial powers, and that the act of the legislative assembly of Utah incorporat ing the church constituted a contract which could not be impaired by con gress, under its authority to repeal ter ritorial enactments. It was also held that the doctrine of escheat was alien to the spirit of free in stitutions, and that it had never been applied in this country to a church or charitable corjwration. One the part of the United States it was contended that congress had authority to repeal all ter ritorial enactments; that the act incor porating the church was invalid, as an attempt to establish a religion contrary to the provisions of the constitution, and that, moreover, the charter . should be annulled for abuse of the granted rights. As, when the church corporation was dissolved, there was no one to whom to turn over the nronertv. it was nronerlv escheated to the United States. In its orniuon the court says. A dis tinguishing feature of Mormonism is well known to lie polygamy and an ab solute ecclesiastical control of its church members. Notwithstanding 'all the ef forts made to suppress tins barbarous practice of polygamy, the sect peise veres, in defiance of law, in propagating mid promoting this nelanous doctrine. The existence of such a propaganda is a blot on our civilization. The organiza tion of a community for the spread of polygamy is a return to barbarism. The question, therefore, is whether the pro motion of such an unlawful system, so repugnant to our laws, is to be allowed to continue, and, whether the enormous funds which have been accumulated shall bo wieldod for the propagation of the obnoxious practice for the promo tion of an organized rebellion against the laws of the United States. The history of the gov ernment's dealings with the Mormons is one of patience on the part of the Amer ican government aim oi resisience w law and pitiless atrocities on the part of the Mormons. The contention that polygamy is a part or tne mormon s re ligious lielief is a sophistical plea. No doubt the thugs of India imagined that their belief in assassination was a re ligious lielief, but that did not make it so. Society has a perfect right to pro hibit offenses against the enlightened sentiment of mankind. Since the church persists in claiming the right to use the funds with which it has lxen endowed for the purpose of promoting these uniawiui practices, me question arises, has the government the right to seize these funds which the Mormon leaders are misusing and devote them to worthy and charitable purposes as jiearly akin as possible to those to which the funds were dedicated r After an elaborate historical review of the common law, the court comes to the conclusion that congress had the right to seize the property and says; "Con gress had before it a contumacious or ganization, wielding by its resources an immense power in the territory of Utah and employing those resources in con stantly attempting to oppose, subvert and thwart the legislation of congress and the will of the government or the United States. Under such circum stances we have no doubt of the right of congress to do as it did." The degree or The lower court is af firmed. JnHtice Bradley delivered the Opinion. IHentlon. Chief Justice Fuller said that he and Just ices Field and Lamar were con strained to dissent from this decision. The power of congress to legislate over the territories was not incident to the treatv-making power, and its power is restricted directly to that expressed or implied in the constitution. There is no such power granted its that involved in the act under consideration. Congress unquestionably has power to suppress polygamy, ami it is immaterial whether the' crime was committed in the name of religion. But congress has not power to seize and confiscate the property of cor porations because they may have been guilty of crime. Kentucky Defeat Indiana. In the suit Ix-tween the states of Ken tucky and Indiana over Ureen River Island, situated on the northern side of the Ohio river, very near Indiana, the court, in an opinion by Justice Field, holds that the island belongs to Ken tucky. STATES' RIGHTS A3 TO LIQUOR. The Bill to Authorize State to Frohlbit the Importation of Liquor. Washington, May 21. Owing to the urgent need of legislation to meet the original jiackage decision of the supreme court, the senate Monday gave unani mous consent to make the bill of Sena tor Wilson, of Iowa, a special order (or Tuesday. The eouiinittee on judiciary has given every feature of the case close study, and proceeded according to the suggestion as to the action ueeded by congress to enablei each state to deal with the liquor question as it sees fit. As a result, the bill and title were amended and reported in the following form : "A bill to limit th effect of the regu lations of commerce between the several states and with foreign countries in cer tain cases. That no- state shall be held to be limited or restrained in its power to prohibit, regulate, control or tax the sale, keeping for sale or the transporta tion, as an article of commerce or other wise, to be delivered within its own limits, of any fermented, distilled or other intoxicating liquids or liquors, by reason of the fact that the same have been imported into snch state from be yond its limits, whether there shall or shall not have been paid thereon any tax, duty, import or excise to the United States." j Home Patronage of American Art. Washington, May 21.- It is not gen erally known that Washington is grow ing as an art center, and is already proving to be a good agency for Ameri can artists. The Corcoran art gallery exists for the promotion of American art, but does not provide a salon for the benefit of our homo artists. Recently Mr. V. Fischer, an art dealer here, took things in hand and in three exhibitions, where only American artists exhibited, the sales were prompt and the prices realized were liberal. Among the pur chasers were Senator Stanford, Con gressman Flower, Mrs. Harrison, Speak er Reed and Mrs. Hitt. In fact, most of Washington's representative citizens were heavy purchasers, and in this way promoters and supporters of home art. SUBTERRANEAN FIRES. All Work Suspended at the Mlnglewood Mine, at North Lawrence. Mishillon, O., May 21. Fire has con trol of the Minglewood mine at North Lawrence, seven miles west of this city. The regular daily rule of the miners be fore quitting work is to fire shots with powder cartridges, which brings down the coal to be loaded in mine cars the following day. When the men entered the mine last Friday morning two of the rooms were found on fare. The flames have steadily advanced since and now hold possession. The mine being perfectly dry renders the situation more alarming, aud the direst possible, and the probable money damage is simply appalling. The mine is the largest in the valley, employing 300 men, and all work has been suspended. All the entries and rooms being filled with smoke prevents all efforts at suppressing the trouble from fear of suffocation. A force of fifty men were put on . duty Monday to check its progress, if possible, but the squads can do but little, being unable to combat with the smoke more than a few minutes at a time. The slope ex tends three-quarters of a mile tinder ground. COLORADO'S PLUCKY PUGILIST. Feter Jackurn Unable to Knock Out Ed ward Smith In Five Round. CuicAGd, May 21. Six "thousaiul'pet? pie witnessed a rattling . five-round match, with four-ounce gloves between Peter Jackson, the colored Australian champion, who is to fight John L. Sul livan, and Edward Smith, the champion of Colorado. Much interest was taken in the question of Smith's ability as against Jackson's, owing to the fact that the Colorado man has been trained by Sullivan's noted helper, Mnldoon, the wrestler, and to the further fact that Smith recently knocked out Mike Cleary in one round. Smith made a decidedly good showing I against the big colored man, standing up the nve rounds witnout suitenng a knock-out. Smith appeared timid in the first round, and was floored three times, but in the succeeding rouuds ral lied, and, though at a disadvantage from Jackson's long reach, landed re- Eatcdly on Jackson's jaw and wind, oth men were groggy when the com bat ended. Muldoon offers to back Smith for Jo.OOO to a finish against any man in the world, barring Sullivan, Mc Auliffo and Jackson. THE KEMMLER WRIT OF ERROR. Application Heard Before the Supreme Court Decision Reserved. Washington, May 21. The applica tion for a writ of error in the case of Keinmler, under sentence of death by electricity, was heard in the supreme court of the United States Tuesday. Roger M. Sherman, counsel for Kemm ler, who made the application, appeared for the condemned murderer. He based his argument on the four teenth amendment to the Fedral consti stitntion, which provides that: "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immuni ties of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, lierty or property without due pro cess of law," and on the eighth amend ment, which provides that "cruel and unusual punishments shall not not be in flicted." The supreme court has reserved Its de cision in the Kcmmler case, and adjourn ed until Friday. Both Mny Die. AcarsTA, Oa., May 21. At (Mem. Ga., Monday, J'tiee W. H. Aspinwall and Mr O.

Congress Will Appropriate Be tween Three and Four Millions To Strengthen the Banks of the Mississippi. This in the Doelslon of a New York Herald Special Correspondent In Washington After a Caretul Investigation Plant crt Along; the River Need Have No Further Uneasiness. New York, May 21. A Herald spe cial from Washington says: . After careful investigation in both houses it may now be stated definitely that the Fifty-first congress will appro priate for levee improvements on the Mississippi from $3,000,000 to $4,000,000. The appropriations will be made in time to allay alarm and to save some valuable property.. There need be no further uneasiness on the part of plant ers aud others residing along the great stream. I have been advised all along that the measure would probably le adopted, but elements of doubt entered into the matter and prevented so posi tive a statement as that given above. This statement is not made upon the simple basis of kind things said to the visiting delegation nor upon the enthu siasm of the friends of the Mississippi in either houso of congress, but is founded on a comparison of views and infonun tion derived from several sources. There will be streuuous opposition in both house and senate to the measure, not withstanding the ease with which tlie $1,000,000 joint resolution passed the former body, but the levee system will come out more than conqueror.

The Explorer Greatly Annoyed by ltelio Hunter and Curiosity Keekers. London, May 21. Stanley is suffering from the arrogances to which all men of great prominence have to submit, in the matter of relic hunters and curiosity seekers. There is also a strong compe tition among managers of exhibitions and museums in the effort to gain scssion of some of the effects, belonging to the African expedition.

Their, efforts have all been in vain,., how ever, as the explorer donated what ever he would spare to the Stanley exhi bition under his patronage in London. Stanley's officers and companions have been subjected to similar solicitations, though, of course, in lesser degree, Stanley has suggested to the commit tee in charge of the Stanley exhibit);;!! that the money raised be devoted to the equipment of a steamer to ply on the Victoria Nyanza in the service and for the benefit of the trilies in that region.
