The military court of inquiry which began taking tes timony In Bristol, Pa., on Monday arriv ed at the Military academy at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon. At 2:30 o'clock it resumed the investigation of the charges of hazing and brutal treatment made by the parents of former Cadet Oscar L. iiooz, who died a couple of weeks ago in his home in Bristol, Pa. The courtroom was open to the public, but-no nonmilita ry men except the reporters were present. A great many officers and attaches of the academy were interested spectators, and from the opening of the proceedings to the adjournment at 0 o'clock not a person left the room. Generals Brooke, Bates and Clous and Captain Dean questioned the witnesses as to the practice of hazing in the academy, both in camp and bar racks. Fourteen of the OS cadets of the second class were examined during the after noon, and all of them who knew Booz declared that his standing with his class mates was not very high, us they looked upon him as a coward. The story of his light with Kellar in ISStS was told by Ca det O. N. Tyler, who seconded Booz. When asked by the court why he did so, Tyler said. "Well. Booz asked me to be his second, and I could ot well refuse." Every one of the wituessts denied that any brutal hazing occurred, and two of them said that the "bracing" and "set ting up drills" were only "correctional measures" and neither injurious or humil iating. Every one of them seemed to give a straightforward story, aud one and all denied that Booz had been interfered with on account of his religious belief or tendencies. Just how long the inquiry here will last could not be figured on by the officers of the court, but it is expect ed to take up the greater part of this week. Petition Refused. PARIS, Dec. 19. The Fiench govern ment has refused the petition of the American and British embassadors re questing that the Passionist fathers and chaplains of the English speaking Cath olic church of St. Joseph be e:jmpt from the heavy tax which the spec.td law im poses on religious bodies. The petition represented that the fathers discharged the duties of secular priests stationed ia Paris solely to minister to the needs of the English speaking colony and that tJieir withdrawal will be an irreparable loss to the colony. The church was built oO years ago with English aud American money, and tbe congregation is composed chiefly of English, Americans and Irish. The fathers have already contested the matter in the courts, which have decided against them. The government has now seized St. Joseph's and the property of' the fathers on the Avenue Hoche and threatens to sell them unless the sum of 20,000 francs, arrears of taxes since 1S9S, is paid.

Senate In Executive Session House on District Legislation. WASHINGTON, Dec. 19. The friends of the Hay-Pauneofote treaty occupied nearly nil of the time of the senate in ex ecutive session yesterday, Senators For aker and Morgan being the speakers. Previous to the taking up of that trea ty the senate, for the purpose of clearing its calendar, disposed of several other treaties of comparatively little impor tance. Five conventions in all were rati fied. Among the documents thus dis posed of was an agreement supplement ary to the Hay-Pauucefote treaty itself and extending the time within which it may be ratified. I'nde.r the terms of the original treaty the time for ratification expired five months ago. The agreement favorably passed upon yesterday extends the time uutil the 4th of March during which the treaty may be completed. Sen ator Lodge, who had the matter in charge, manifested some anxiety over this treaty aud evidently was somewhat relieved when it went through without a dissenting voice. The house devoted tbe day to District of Columbia busiviess. The whole time was occupied in ".he consideration of a bill to change the terminal facilities of the Pennsylvania railroad ia this city and to provide for the elevation of its tracks across the Mall south of Pennsylvania avenue. The opposition was persistent, but after much filibustering the friends of the bill succeeded in securing a recess until 11 o'clock today iu order to con tinue the legislative day and complete consideration of the biM.

He con sulted with the attorney general yester day morning with a view to setting on foot at once an investigation as to the members of the mob. which was com posed, as usual, of the "'best citizens." It is highly probable that he will not wait, for the local authorities to act, al though this had been his purpose pre vious to t; third lynching.
