Revival of the Inquisition.
A writer tor. (hi:.? co Spain in a re
cent cumber of Cinder's Weekly made j
the following pointed observations : j
"Seuator Thurston, in his recent
speech on Cuba, expressed with eon- j
side.-able vehemence his horror of I
ain. In the- ufbiro-; of Senator
Gallinger, which preceded it, as well
as in the address of senator Proctor,
there was less vehemence perhaps,
but the horror was as marked. To
these gentlemen it seemed abominable
that Spain should be allowed to act as
she has. But when was she not! The
butchery which has been going on in
Cuba is but a continuation of a prac
tice, not immemorial perhaps, but
sufficiently historic. It lacks the
pomp of the auto-da-fe; it lacks, too,
the smoke of the fagot. Otherwise it
is the same thing the extermination
of those whose views differ from her
own, the policy of the Inquisition
The birth of that institution occurred
in Provence. It originated in the
heresy known as that of the Albi
genses. The Duke of Burgundy set
out to destroy it. The problem arose
how the heretices were to be distin
guished from the orthodox. The Duke
solved it in a minute. Deciding that
God would know His own, he killed
everybody. The simplicity of the
proceeding appealed to Spain. There
were a number of Jews there. There
were also a number of Moors. Of both
perhaps a million. They were not
wanted. Torqnemada, Ferdinand V.
aiding, saw to it that they went. Under
penalty of excommunication, it was
forbidden to supply tbern with any
thing to givo them even bread. At
first they were permitted to leave the
country, provided they left their pos
session behind. The majority of those
who starved to death were, Lloreute
says, garrotados y quemados strangled
and burned. The ovan at Cordova is
legendary. The condemned marched
up in files. The people sat about aDd

a function like the bull fight one in
which the crowd delighted. The
utility of it being proved, it was main
tained. Presently it was expected
Wherever Spain appeared, so did the
Inquisition. She established it in
Mexico, in Peru, all though South
America, and in the Fhilipines. Abo
lished sixty or seventy years ago, it
took Weyler to revive it. The garrote
and the fagot have been lost on the
way, but the methods which Senator
Thurston denounced are otherwise as

MAJOR JORDAN WINS.
Law Creating County Immigration
From the Phoenix Republican.
Judge Sloan yesterday sustained the
territorial law creating tho office of
county immigration commissioners by
finding for the plaintiff in the case of
Jordan vs. the Board of Supervisors
of Maricopa county. Every principle
of the plaintiff was upheld, but one
contention was denied reducing the
amount sued for by from $40C to $600.
The amount of the plaintiff's claim
was $1,200, involving two years' ser
vices at $50 a month. Major Jordan was
appointed commissioner two months
before t)a beginning of tha salm-y for
vi hk-h lie brought suit. At the tnd of
each if tVir',e two month he presented
hid e'ttlm to the board of supervisors
and it was disallowed. He brought
u;t before a justice of the peace and
uoUiiiioi judgment. Tho case was ap-
pealed to the district court and Judge
Baker found for the defendant. The
commissioner's claims were afterward
presented on two occasions and were
disallowed. Ko further legal action
was taken until last summer, when
Judge Street and Attorney-General
Frazier brought suit for the commis
sioner for so much of the salary as had
not been sued for. In the meantime
the commissioner withdrew the vari
ous claims which he had presented
and presented them again in the ag
gregate. The case was tried before
Judge Sloan several months ago, as
Judge Street was disqualified.
There were three theories of the de
fense. The first was that the law was
unconstitutional. The second was that
the matter was res adjudicata, having
already been passed upon in district
court, and the third was that the plain
tiff had lost his rights under section
408 of the statutes regarding the pre
sentation of claims to the board of supervisors.-
The law required that all
claims other than witnesses' and ju
rors' fees and claims for salaries must
be submitted within six months. The
above mentioned claims may be sub
mitted any time within three years.
Judge Sloan in the first place af
firmed the right of the legislature to
i crta'.e the oll'.j'j of immigration cotn
j njissi jTier, his saltry to be paid by the
i county to which he is appointed. As
I to Uie secvii i oi.teution by the defense
tlic matter had already been adjud
cated, J'.'j' jo Kloau held that Judge
Baker's df-:'j';on enald only affect the
matter before him and that no part of
the salary involved in the former suit
had entered into the latter- Regarding
the theory that the plaintiff had lost
his rights by neglecting to present his
claim within six months, the court de
cided that the matter did not come un
der that statute.
But Judge Sloan decided that the
plaintiff had forfeited a part of his
claim under section 415, which re
quires that when a claim of any char
acter has been presented and rejected,
suit must be begun within six months
or it cannot be maintained. Suit in
this case had not been commenced
within six months after a considerable
part of this claim had been rejected.
The judge said he believed, but was
not sure, that about half of it had
lapsed. Just how much of it will be
lost in this way can be determined by
reference to the dates of proceedings
in the supervisors' office rejecting the
Attorney-General Frazier said he did
not believe that more than $400 would
be so lost.
The board of supervisors was not
in session yesterday, ao that there was
no indication as to whether or not an
appeal would ta!;en from Judge
Sloan s decision. I be decision was
delivered orally. Judpe Sloan will
probably present a written opinion
within the next sixty days.
Spain's Naval Strength.
tFrom Harper's Weekly.
In order that timid souls may not be
unduly perturbed by the stories that
are printed in the daily papers con
cerning the very powerful ships of .ttie
Spanish navy, it is well perhaps to say
that the Spanish navy is not more than
one-third as powerful as our own, and
is probably not more than one-tenth
as effective. The power of .navies can
not be judged accurately by comparing
lists of ships and armaments. The
condition of the ships and guns must
be reckoned with; and while the
American ships are always in first-class
order, Spanish ships rarely are. There
is the Alfonso XII., for instance,
counted among the Spanish fleet as ef
fective vessels. Asa matter of fact.
her boilers are in Buch a condition that
she cannot move. The relative effec
tiveness of navies depends upon officers
and crews upon the human equation
and in that respect the American navy
is as good as any in the world, and the
Spanish navy is one of the weakest.
Federal Storage Reservoirs.
Those who look to the construction
of federal irrigation works ns the solu
tion of so many social and political
problems find great eneouragementand
hope for the final full adoption of the
policy by the government in the recent
report of Secretary of War Alger,
recommending the construction of
storage reservoirs in the west, Those
who desire the water to make fertile
the deserts and enable industrious la
bor to build homes upon them are not
going to split hairs upon the ostensible
or immediate purpose of their con
struction. That they will aid naviga

the SHtne ttme utilized to accomplish
the greyer purpose, au
umpli will have been achieved. The
construction of storage reservoirs, irri
gation works and flood protection
works in the whole Mississippi valley
is all really one great national problem
which the government should seize
hold upon as an entirety aud devote its
whole power to its solution, having al
ways in mind the great ultimate end f
creating rural homes and bringing
gradual emancipation to the wage
earners of the country.
Secretary Alger in his report says
"Reservoir construction in the arid
region would reduce flood height of the
Missouri river during the June rise,
which is indispensable to the highest
development of that section, falling
more properly under the domain of the
nation than of the state, and need not
invoke government eontrol of irriga
tion works. The government should
acquire full title and jurisdiction to
any site it. improves and full rights to
the water. Tho total extent of a reser
voir system in the arid regions which
shall, render available the eutire flow
ing streams will not exceed 1,161,000,
000 cubic feet. If its construction was
to consume a century in time it would
represent an annual storage of about
116,000,000,000 cubic feet or 276,800
tcre feet. At $5.37 per foot this would
