[ Special to Tnit BEB. ] Tlio contmvcrsy between Auditor Moore nnd Commissioner Gonornl Garncau passed Its first legal slneo this forenoon when Judge Btroilo of tlio district court In nnd for Lan caster county hnndcd down his opinion In the cuaos brought by Garncau to compel the auditor to Issue Ills warrants for a number of disputed accounts. Mr. Garneau brought two notions , ono to compel the nudltor to Issue n warrant for the iimount duo Henry Dlbblo & Co. , the furniture dealers of Chicago who had a claim of $1,223 for furniture , etc. , placed in the Nebraska building. In this casa Judge Strode hold that the vouchers were sufllclcnt nnd in proper form. Ho decided that the commissioner general was nu Independent state ofllcor in charge of the Nebraska exhibit nt the World's fair nnd that therefore his odlclal nets could not bo questioned by ttio auditor unless fraud was charged. In this case no fraud was charged and therefore the court held that It vns the auditor's duty to iisuo his warrant for the payment of the amount of the claim. Ho directed the auditor to Issue the warrant at oticu , n motion for a now trial being ro fused. In the other case Commissioner General Garueau n skml the court for tin order com- licllintr the auditor to Issue to him a warrant for $ GilS.7S ! for personal expenses , etc. In this case tlio court hold that the vouchers were insuniclunt and that the auditor was Justified In refusing to pay the claim. Ho therefore dismissed the case. Motions wcro made in both cases for a new trial , but in both instances the court overruled. Forty days wore granted both nides In which to prepare bills of exception and take the cases to the supreme court. Auditor Moore was absent from his ofllco today and consequently could not be seen for an expression ofihls views upon the future of the caso. Ho lias held all along , however , that ho simply wished to Jo his duty in the matter ami itmt ho hud no personal fooling whatever in the cases. llrookwujr O. H. Brockwny , the man whoso Inordinate passion for liquor drove his young wife to commit suicide in this city ono week ago , was tnis afternoon adjudged Insane by the Board of Insanity and taken to the State Hospital for the Insane near this city. The charge of Insanity was preferred against him by n. S. Johnsqn , proprietor of tno Capital hotel. Brockway has made his head quarters at the Capital over since the dual nut In the tragedy of last week and last Saturday afternoon ho niado an Ineffectual attempt to end his own lifo by swallowing a quantity of ether. Ho rested easy during that night and yesterday , after a consulta tion , his friends determined that the only course open to them was to place him in the asylum , where it is believed ho will soon recover the full use of his mental faculties. Ho has many friends in this city who main tain that ho is simply mentally unbalanced through drink nnd the tragedy which took place at his homo last Monday night. SetroU'g Onso Postponed. The case of the state against W. D. Spwell , who is charged with having been oiio of the contractors who defrauded the state in the matter of furnishing supplies to the state insane asylum , was to have been celled in tuo district court this afternoon , but tno state secured a continuance. It Is stated upon good authority that the state does not dcsiro to go to trial until another Jury can bo empaneled or another vcniro selected. Sewollis not likely to bo defended by the same array of legal talent that was brought out at the Dorgan trial , bun ho boasts freely that his acquittal is certain nnd that his trial is only a matter of form. The charges against Sowell are very similar to those against Dorgau. Ho held the con tract for supplying flour for the use of tlio asylum during the .years IS'Jl nnd 1892 , with the exception of a few months in each year. Ho is charged with collecting pay from the state for largo quantities of Hour which ho did not deliver. Uoulp ut the State llnugo.

Secretary of vho KcclmluatlcHl Court lie- counts tlio l > n\l Prosecution. GKAND tsiiNi ) , Neb. , Oct. 88. To the Edi tor of THE Ben : The congregation of the Trinity Mothcdlst Episcopal church of this city has chosen mo to present through your columns the true status of the case of the Trinity Methodist Episcopal church ngainst W. J D.tvls. Having performed the duties of secretary of the 'court before which this case was brought , and having the records at my hand , I ahall deal only with facts as they have developed and be came a matter of record. On the STJd dayjof September , ISW.'tho oflleial board of Trinity church ordered the drafting and service of n bill of charges on the auovo W. J. D.ivls , which was done , und the service made ou the morning of the Hh. A substituted bill was drafted nud served on the 28th citing him to trial on the 17th of October. The charges were : First , "Defamation , " llyo specifications ; second , "Criminal As sault , " ono specification ; third , "Fraud und Dishonesty , " two specifications. During the interim between the service of the original charges and the substituted charges , Mr. Davis iilcd a letter of with drawal from the church , which the oflleial board refused to consider , holding that he was not in good standing and he could not honorably withdraw without meeting in some way the charges agair.st him. These ho must either meet in trial , refuse to notice and uo tried for in his absence , or withdraw under the imputation that they are truo. Hov. J. W. Robinson of Central City , was appointed by the presiding elder as president of the trial , and according to ap pointment the case came to a hearing. President Robinson selected his committee - tee to try the case from pastoral charges outsulo of the city of Grand Island , which gave the defendant the advantage of a trial by intelligent and unprcdjudlccd men. After the preliminaries of opening the case the defense offered Objection to the president of the court on the ground that ho could not have a fair and impartial hearing before him. It was shown that the acfeuso had had from the 38th ot September until that tlmo to correct that difficulty , if such ex isted , and that ho had taken no exceptions to having It brought before the said J. vV. Robinson. Objections were overruled. Defense - fenso then filed a pica of opposition to the jurisdiction of the court , claiming to i have 'withdrawn prior to the serving of the then existing bill of charges , The plea was denied by the court , the court holding that the defendant could not withdraw without the consent of the oflleial board , which consent was not glvon because the defonnant was under the orig inal bill of charges at the tlmo of filing' ms letter of withdrawal. After passing upon other technicalities of n dilatory nature the defense secured und presented a notlco from J. R. Thompson , judge of the district court , calling President Robinson before him to make answer why an injunction should not issue restraining the ecclesiastical court from taking any further proceedings. At 3 o'clock p. m. , October 10 , whllo the case was before Judge Thompson , President Robinson made known to the church that ho had been applied to by the defendant , Davis , for withdrawal from , the church "under charges. " The official board was immediately sum moned In special session , and for the purpose of expediting matters ( as was said ) the members of the board wcro asked to rescind their former action bearing ou Davis' with drawal. This they refusoa to do. A resolu tion was then offered and adopted permitting Davis to withdraw "under charges , " which resolution was shown to Davis' attorney in Davis1 presence , whereupon Davis' attorney dropped his proceedings for an injunction , and Davis went out of court and out of the ohurch "under the charges" and specifica tions then on fllo , and which now constitute a part of the church records of Trinity Methodist Episcopal church of Grand Island. While comments are entirely out of order in this letter the reader will read ily sou the difference between the two applications , and that in accepting the second end all was gained by the church that could have been gained by prosecuting the trial tea a finish. Attention is also called to the fact that the church did not in any way make overtures to Mr. Davis looking to a compro- milo of the matter. These facts , as above stated , have become a matter of record in the archives of the church , and Mr. Davis * relation to the church is no uettor than it would have been had ho been expelled upon every charuo and npeclflcatlon made.

Saturday night the finance committee of the Board of Education met to discuss the matter of ways and means for keeping the wolf from the door until such time as more funds shall bo placed nt their disposal through the collection of fines in December and January. The report of the committee to the city council U about duo , and the com mittee is somewhat embarrassed on account of its inability to make a good showing , on account of various mishaps that have oc curred. At Saturday night's mootlng.no definite action was taken , but a member of the board stated that it may bo necessary for the mom bera of that body to ' negotiate a loan of a considerable amount und to hold themselves individually responsible for it until the school funds accruing from fines shall have boon paid In the lirstof the year. Treasurer Holln cannot divert any money from the building fund excepting on his personal re sponsibility , and it is not likely that he will be asked to do that , in the light of recent events , Some plan will bo decided upon by the board , hownvor , and tlut | very soon.

Several of the Pacltlu const men said that if the sonata should amend the bill as has been suggested by striking out all amendments and making it simply an exten sion of six months , a quorum would bo needed in the house to pass the amended bill.

The supreme court of the United States today dismissed for want of jurisdiction the case of the Schulcr National bank against the Bollonps from the United States court of Nebraska. It was n usury case nnd was urged last week , as was mentioned at the tlmo by a BEG special.

The bill will come before the house ns unfinished Business , as soon ns It can be reached , and thcro Is a feeling that It will bo adopted. Its opera tion would bo against the Interests of the prairie states , as it authorizes the secretary of the interior to dispose of all timber ou the public domain at his discretion. The measure was designed to benefit some logging nnd sawmill companies in Arkansas , where there are Immense tracts of timber lands which are only valuable for the timber upon them. If nn amendment wcroofTorcd confining the provision authorizing the sale of timber to certain states in the south nud excluding prairie states and territories it would llnd little objection and it is possible that such an amendment may yet bo added cither in the hauso or senate. Representative Lucas of South Dakota , who represents that segtlon of his state which embraces the Black Hills , where there are valuable public timber lands.

FROM AN ISOLATED ISLE. Mr , Quintal Adams of Norfolk , South ln- flllc , VUIU Omulni. Mr. Quintal Adams of Norfolk Uland , South Pacific , after u pleasant visit in this city of several days duration , loft for Chi cago. Mr. Adams Is a stalwart , intellectual looking gentleman of some forty years and n most agreeable talker on numerous topics , though ho prefers to discuss this nation and Its phenomenal growth. Ho evinces n knowledge of American history ono would scarcely expect Hi n man isolated aS Mr. Adnms has been for Norfolk Island is out of the Hue of transoceanic travel nnd is only visited by English men-of-war nnd whaling vessels. Dcsplto the great disad vantages of his youth Mr , Adnms appears , what ho doubtless is , an educated gentle man. Ho lias many Interesting stories to relate of the settlement of Norfolk Island , not the least entertaining of which Is ono somewhat autobiographical. Mr. Adams is the crc.xt-graudson of Alexander Adams.ono of tlio mutineers of the Bounty. In 171K ) the Bounty , n ship of some L'oo tous bur then , was fitted out by the British govern ment , placed under the command of Lieu tenant Bllgh and dispatched to the Sand wich islands for n cargo of breadfruit trees , to bo shipped thence to the crown oossus- slons In the West Indies. It transpired in the of the ' Ill-starred course Bounty's - voy age that the commanding officer was a ty rant and martinet of the first order. Putting the men on half allowance and curtailing the rations of the under olllcors were events of common occuirenco. Such treatment could only end In ono thing , nnd that came to pass. The subofllcors and crow mutinied nnd set Lieutenant Bllgh and his favorites adrift in an opcu boat. The Bounty sailed thcnco to the Sandwich islands , and , taking on board a small num ber of native men and women , begau a quest for a secluded island homo. This they found eventually on Pitcalrn Island. The limits of this article are too narrow for an extended narrative of the lives of the Pitcairn colonists. They lived In Acadian simplicity for some thirty years before their retreat was discovered. In the agitation of the numerous wars in which Great Britain was engaged during that period the mu tineers of the Bounty wcro forgotten. So when the colonists were discovered and their history related to her majesty's offi cers the latter had nothing but sympathy for their isolated condition. The many stories that reached Europe of the settlement on that lonolv island in the far away Pacific finally enlisted the Interest of the British government and steps were taken to improve the colonists' condition. It was represented to her majesty that Pitcairn - cairn island was too small for the constantly Increasing population and that cither the colonists must bo removed to a larger do main or eventually perish by starvation. It was then that the queen selected Nor folk Island , which had formerly been a con vict camp , but was then abandoned. In 1850 the descendants of the Bounty mutineers were removed from Pitcalrn island to their now home , where they have since resided and prospered. Mr. Quintal Adams carried a walking stick , the knob of which was covered with seal skin. Ho said the stick had a curious his tory , though thcro was nothing in Its ap pearance to indicate that It was more than un ordinary cane. It was made of white mahogany and was excellently preserved. Mr. Adams said the stlclr was given to his grandfather by ono of the native chiefs of the Sandwich Islands , who bad in turn re ceived it from his forefathers. lu the re mote past the cano had been the visible sign of a treaty of alliance between two tribes and was presented to the chief of the stronger by the chief of the weaker tribe. It hap pened , however , thnt whoever used tbo cano was eventually attacked by leprosv , so that In tlmo tbo stronger tribe became the weaker and fell an easy victim to its pretended - tended ally , Their object achieved , the knee of the cano was covered to prevent further contagion , and covered it has re mained over sinco. Mr. Adams said that at tor His visit to the world's fair ho ex pected to continue his tour to London nnd pay a visit to Queen Victoria. He would present tho'cano to the British museum , at which place ho had no doubt the mystery of the diseased and poisonous knob would bo elucidated. COXFIDENCK.
