Tho expected charges against Superintend
ent . F. Lang of tho Beatrice Institution
for Feeblo Minded Youth have at Inst been
filed with tho governor, and It Is announced
seml-ofllclally that Lang will bo given a
hearing within tho next few weeks. A copy
of tho complaint was Hiallcd to Dr. Lang last
night and It is understood that accompany
ing It wns a request for him to name the dato
of tho hearing.
The grievances against Dr. Lang havo
multiplied during tho last few days. Much
fault Is found with his method of denting
with employes and especially with teachers.
Miss Virginia Larson of Hastings was re
moved Friday afternoon and yesterday sho
laid her caso beforo tho governor. Miss
Hrady, another teacher employed In the
samo Institution, accompanied her and cor
roborated all of her assertions concerning
tho superintendent.
It has leaked out In oftlcl.il circles that
(Jovcrnor Ioyntcr has become tired of listen
ing to complaints against the administra
tion of Dr. Lang and that ho will Insist on a
complete explanation of all of the charges.
Prlvato Secretary Jewell refused to exhibit
the formal complaint yesterday, announc
ing that If made public at all It would be
through tho agency of Mr. Lang and not
through tho governor's olllco.

AGAINST LAND LEASING BILL
MnnH Mootlnjr of Hooker G'ntintr fit
lxoim Denounce Turnluir Prop
erty fiver to Stutcn.
MULLKN, Neb., March 11. (Special.) At
a mass meeting of citizens of Hooker county,
held hero March 3, the project to have tho
government lands In tho western states nnd
territories turned. over to tho states for leas
ing purposes was bitterly denounced. Tho
following resolutions, nddrcssed to the na
tional congress, before which a resolution to
the above effect Is -pending, were adopted:
Whorens, There Is now vending beforo
congress u measure having In view the
leasing to prlvato Individuals and local
corporations nil tho public hinds in the
I'nlted States lying west of tho ii'Jtli meri
dian; and
Whereas, Sold bill withdraws from settle
ment and threatens seriously to check the
future development of tho west; nnd
Whereas, Such a measure would have an
undoubted tendency to concentrate the con
trol of lnrgn tracts of whnt Is now nubile
domain In tho hnnds of a few, to tho detri
ment of many; and
Whcrens, We believe that greater gen
eral prosperity would lie had It l.Ooo ranch
men pastured 100.000 or 200,00) cnttlo tlian
If &o or three lnrgo companies pastured
tho samo number of cattle on the name,
land; and
WhcreuH, Tho said measure Is fr'menaco
to the weltare of tho Inhabitants of the ter
ritory thereby nffected nnd Is fraught with
disaster to the agrarian population of such
territory; and
Whereas. Tho said measure Is In direct
conlllet with the American system of pro
viding bonus nnd Is a menace to the wel
fare of a Inrgo number of the citizens ot
tho United States, and will nerlously de
pleto and partially dcpopulato this vast
area, comprising half the territory of the
United States reducing tho revenue nilslng
from' the public lands Instead of Increasing
It: and
Whereas, We believe that tho stnto
ownership of tho arid lands of tho WfSt
would result In the leasing or selling of
large bodies of said lands to Individuals or
companies, thus retarding development. In
that farmers and small ranchmen as set
tlers would bo shut out from tho lands.
Therefore bo It
Hesolved, That the several different acts
of congress In reference to the artd lands
meet tho necessities of the nctunl settler
moro fully and Justly than could any
"acts" of the different states In reference
thereto do. And bo It
Hesolved, Thnt wo aro unalterably op
posed to tho proposed or any similar meas
ure nnd earnestly protest ngaln.it Its enact
ment Into law. And bo It further
Hesolved, That this meeting of citizens
tnko such action ns will procure tho dis
semination of this protest throughout the
territory affected and enrnestly request the
Immediate co-npcratlon of Its Inhabitants.
And bo It further
Resolved, That wo aro- unalterably op
posed to the leasing of tho public hinds ns
proposed In said bill, or of giving the states
control of public, lands lytug within its,
boundaries, with power to leaso or sell tho
same. And we pledge ourselves not to
support nny man for public otllco that will
work or vote for said bill.

NEBRASKA CITY, March 11. (Special.)
Superintendent J. E. Harris ot tho Institu
tion for tho Blind In this city relates a dif
ferent story to that printed In Tho Bco yes
terday regarding Sara Rich, the blind stu
dent who was summarily "fired" from tho
Institution a few dnys ago.
Mr. Harris states that tho reason for
Rich's expulsion from tho school was dis
obedience ot tho rules of the institution,
coupled with an attempt on his part to
breed discontent among the other pupils nnd
to Incite them to acts of great4nnnoyanco to
their teachers. A fow days after young Rich
had been disciplined for his disobedience tho
superintendent received nn anonymous let
ter coucjied In vile and Indecent terms, tho
nuthorshlp of which was traced to Rich. For
these reasons tho superintendent deemed It
for the best Interests of tho Institution to rid J
It of the presence of the student, and he was j
accordingly sent homo.

NEW YORK, March 11. In a papor on
"Tho Monroo Doctrine and Our N.ivy,"
which ho has written for the forthcoming
Issuo of Leslie's Weekly, Captain A. T.
Mahan says:
"Tho settlement and growth of our Pa
cific coast, the Increasing commercial con
sequence of tho Paelflo coast and the ques
tions arising about China, Its future govern
ment nnd Its trade, mnko It necessary to
connect our Atlantic and gulf seaboard with
tho Pacific by n canal across tho Isthmus,
establishing thereby consecutive water com
munication between tho two, as well ns
shortening tho nccess from our cistern
shores to Asia. The Isthmus and Its Im
mediate surroundings thus become tho great
est of our external interests. Scarcely sec
ondary to them is tho Caribbean sen, because
nil set roads to tho Isthmus run through It
nnd It contains many strong positions, tho
acquisition of which by a formidable Euro
pean stnto would In war endanger our ship
ping mcrcantllo nnd naval alike passing
betwesn our Atlantic ports and the PaclUc
by tho canal.
Interest of Other Nntlons.
"Wo must remember that other nations,
nnd especially European, because the most
active, nro Interested likewise In using thnt
cnnnl, and, for tho support of their Interests,
In gaining positions. To their doing so we
opposo tho .Monroo doctrlnn. Therefore, If
wo Intend to make tho affirmations of the
latter wo must bo prepared to resist, forci
bly If need be, any attempt to obtain adja
cent territory or ports which may serve as
slntlons for a navy hostile to ourselves. It
Is natural that Huropean nations should
wish such positions; that Oermany, for In-
stnnce, as has been lately rumored, should
wish tho Danish Islands St. Thomas, etc.
Her right to buy them Is as good In Inter
national law as ours; the Monroo doctrine
depends upon legal right, not upon the
moral right of our Indispensable Interests
nnd derives Its support from tho fact that
It Is not worth whllo to Incur our enmity,
pushed, perhaps, to the extent of war.
"Now tho ono preparation for war In a
marltlmo region llko the Caribbean Is a
navy largo enough 4o be effective. Ports
nro qulto secondary. They aro necessary to
a navy which needs' a local base of opera
tions, but they aro1 'useless without It, and
especially In the7 Caribbean, because con
ditions thero nrd en backward as to give
no local resources': Positions held there not
only mU9t bo fortlfletl, but everything to
support shipping" must bo Imported, and a
steady stream of 'supilly maintained. This
can only bo donf by the navy keeping the
sen open, which nt tlio samo time secures
our other merchant shipping.
Sle of' N'ni'y NeetleU.
"To do thrso tbJrgs, which Is called con
trolling the sea,' the i navy uhould strictly
bo superior to any which can bo brought
ngnlnst it, but this extreme conclusion Is

llurc Harvard IHNtlnotlou for Woman
Whose Claim .In n Mud Story.
Within a fow days tho picture of a womin
will bo hung In ono of tho lecture rooms
at tho Harvard law school, reports ths
Boston Transcript. Harvard Is Justly proud
of tho collection of some 200 or 380 portraits
of eminent Judges,, barristers and law
writers which adon, ,tfyo walls of "Its law
school, but the picture o a woman has never
beforo been given n.pJiYjo among them. To
gain such n place fs n raro honor, and a
recognition of somolhng mare thun legal
notorloty. Tho stoj-y. af .Mrs. Austin's claim
to this distinction puthetlc one, To tell
it, ono must nlso3to). tho atory of her
husband, John AtinUtyte
Mrs. Austin marrJrtdlp 1819 or 1S20. John
Austin, n young English, barrister. He had
been In tho nrmy 3 ayouth, but had left
It nt tho suggestlon,,,pf friends who thought
they saw in htm t))ij making of a brilliant
lawyer. Ife was tjp.jno confident himself,
and frankly oxprcs'fldyjils forebodings In n
lotter written to Jjlsj Taylor before their
marriage. " jyid may God, above nil,
strengthen us to bpa'r tin. under thoso priva
tions and dlsappolnmejijs with which It Is
but too probable wo nvi destined to con
tend." In 1818 ho was called to tho bar,
and two years later married Miss Taylor,
to whom he had been engaged llvo years.
Mr. Austin soon gavo up his unsuccessful
practice and began tho study of Jurispru
dence. There were no law schools In Eng
land at tho time, but in 182C London uni
versity attempted something like one, and
Austin was asked to tako the chair of Ju
risprudence To tt himself for this, he
wont with his wlfo to Ronu and Dresden,
where ho perfected himself In tho German
lnnguago, and came under the mose eminent
professors of Jurisprudence, Both he and
hta wife were thoroughly Irnbuod with the
cptrlt ot tho German universities, and
this period ot study-left Ineffaceable mark
on them. '
In 1828 they"-returned to England and the
work &t London university was begun, Tho
class Included several men who afterward
took tho highest rank as Jurists and writers,
among whom were Jobu Stuart Mill and
Lord Roraltly. Financially the lectures
Were a failure. Disappointed nt his failure
Austin gnvo up tho ohnlr, but published his
lectures, only to be dlsnppolnted again, for
nt tho tlmo they received slight notice.
After many subsequent failures his health
gatn way and ho was obliged to live at Carls
bad In the summer nnd Paris In tho winter.
During all this time Mrs. Austin was tot
lowing and aiding her husband In his work,
bullies adding to their scanty Income by
making translations from the German,
Mr. Austin died In December, 1S59, n dis
appointed man.
After her husband's death Mrs. Austin
tried to find somo ono to put In form for
publication tho notes which Mr. Austin had
left, but there seemed to bo no one com
petent nnd willing to ttndertnko tho task.
At last a friend who had known them both
urged Mrs. Austin to try It herself. "It
will bo a great and dlfllcult labor, but If you
do not do It It will never be done." For
several years she was engaged on tho work,
which was even moro dlfllcult than was ex
pected, far most of the lectures were given
extempore and tho notes were very meager.
Mrs. Austin triumphed at last. Tho book
wno published nnd today, after having gone
through flvo editions, Is still the authority
on the subject. So, after his death. John
Austin's hopes wero realized by the loving
labor of his wife. Today tho wlfo Is hon
ored no less than tho husband, for her In
tellect saved to the world what his created.

Process.
Several months ngo mention was made of
a system ot printing without Ink, which or
iginated in Kngland and which was the In
vention of n man nnmcd firevn. The paper
used In this process Is chemically prepnred.
so that when electricity Hows through It
from tho faco of the typo the chemicals con
tallied aro turned dark. A syndicate hns
been formed In tho British cnpltal to develop
tho Invention and for about four mnntlia
elaborato experiments with It havo been In
progress. Public exhibitions of the system
havo been given and tho nttcntlon of publish
ers and scientific folk, not "merely In Eng
land, but nlso on tho continent of Kuronn.
has been drawn to It. A. Sanderson, tho
managing director of tho comnanv behind the

formerly resorted to in order to fncllltato
tho passage, of tho current through. It.
Yenrs ago It was customary to moisten the
sheets several hours beforo printing, as It
was beliovod that better results wero thus
obtained. That practice has now been aban
doned nnd If wetting wero nccess.ry In tho
now electrical process tho labor Involved
would constitute a drawback to the plun. It
has been found to be practicable to dispense
with It, howovcr.
Ono of tho first questions that arlso Iji re
gard to tho Green lirocess relates to tho
speed with which It can bo worked. Of
course, tho electricity must net upon tho
chemicals for a sensible period of tlmo In
order to accomplish tho desired object. And
If tho tlmo required should prove to bo
much greater than that needed with Ink this
limitation would provo a serious one. Whnt
Sir. Sanderson says on this point Is not alto
gether clear. Ho speaks 'of "a small rotary
press" which gavo him "0,000 impressions an
hour," If ho employed only a single set of
plates, or forms, then tho speed attained
was nbout half that of tho best modern nens
paper presses. Tho latter make nbout 12,000
revolutions nn hour. Their capacity can be
doubled by putting on two full sets of stereo-

iypo piates, out ino snmo tning can no none

question is tho number of revolutions an

as with the bc-st web perfecting presi; per
haps only n quarter.
Tho chemicals requlrod to render the paper

aro essentially different from those used In
photography. For tho present the Inventor
and thoso who control his process are not
willing to mention tho nature of these ma

are Incorporated Into the paper during the
operation of manufacturing the Intter and aro

Tho paper can bo had Just as
cheaply, ho says, as if It had not been
treated with a view to electrical printing.
A comparison between tho old and new
methods Is offered to show tho economy that
Is said to bo ono ot tho epcclal advantages
of tho Oreen plan. It Is assumed that a

being In light faced typo and five devoted to

Mr, Sanderson declares that the current re
quired to do tho same work by thti electri
cal method would cost 1 pence nn hour, C
shillings and 9 pence a week of Ofty-four
hours, or 17 Is 3d a year. To this must bo
added 20 for the license to use tho process.
According to this estimate thero would be n
saving of 14f 7s 9d a yoar.
lAtnong the other claims put forwnrd In
behalf of tho electrical process is that It
leaves a permanent Impression. Inasmuch
as the system Is a now ono, little chance
haa been afforded for a thorough test on
this score, but specimens of work nro In
existence that aro six months old, and some
of these have been constantly exposed to
the light. "Mr. Sanderson says that they
retain their original strength and solidity,
which Is moro thau can lie said of somo
printing Inks. Tho regulnUon of Intensity
of shade Is effected by Introducing a "re
sist" Into the press. This dovlco Is not
described In detail, but tho principle is
easily understood. Tho degree of the In
fluence exerted on the Ink by tho current
Is proportional to the amount of electricity
passing through it. By introducing In Its
path something which offers resistance to
Its How tho amount of tho current that Is
effective Is lessened and the darkness of
tho Impression Is abated accordingly.
Tho amount of current required Is said
to bo so small that no accident can occur
from the uso of electricity, and the con
trol ot tho operation Is simplicity tte!f.
To current Is turned on and off by nn ordi
nary push button.
Tho enro with whloh. tho Green process
can bo adapted to presses now In uae will
doubtless facilitate Its Introduction If In
other respeclH It shall bo found satisfactory.
No change appears to b necessary beyond
tiro removal of tho old Ink" rollers nnd rocep
tacltw and tho attachment of a few electric
wires. But a supply of the right kind of
paper Is requisite. Although tho company
of which Mr. Sanderson Is the managing
director has Its own presses for test pur
praff, It has under consideration offers from
two Ijndon dully papers to try tho system
on the fast presses of the latter. Similar
proposals havo been made by continental
publishers. As yet, ovldently, tho company
Is not ready to take advantage of the oppor
tunity thus afforded, from which It may be
Inferred that perfectlcn ban not yet been
reached, In fact, Mr. Sanderson frankly
says;
"Wo do not claim finality for our pro
ces, but wo do clarm that It Is commercially
practicable-, and In duo tltoo wo hopo to
prove It."

SORSOOE.V, Southern Luzon, Jan. 20.
(Correspondence of tho Associated Press.)
Two days ago a military expedition of some
2,500 American troops, under General Kobbe,
left Manila and proceeded on sevcrnl steam
ships to tho southern und ot Luzon Island,
thero to occupy nnd permanently garrison
clx scacoast towns and villages. Up to the
present time throe such towns have come
under tho American Hag nnd the control ot
American nrmy olflclals nnd no ono has been
hurt on cither side. Two or threo moro
places still remain to be garrisoned down
hero and then tho expedition will proceed
to Samara and Leyte, there to occupy and
hold tho principal towns of these neighbor
ing Islands.
General Kobbe's commnnd Is competed of
the Forty-third nnd Forty-seventh United
States volunteer Infantry nud Captain Ran
dolph's battery of tho Third artillery. These
trcops wero loaded on the transports Han
cock and Garonne and tho local steamers
Venus, Aeroltis, Salvadora nnd Custellnno.
Convoyed by tho gunboat Nashville the ex
pedition left Manila January IS and slowly
steamed down the coast to the entrance of
tho deep bay that leadw from the sea up to
tho town of Sotsogen, near tho southern ex
tremity ot Luzon. On the mornlug of-January
20 wo met the gunboat Helena and tho
llttlo caravclo and, tho three warships lend
ing tho transports in single file, the whole
expedition slowly proceeded up Sorsogen
bay.
liny I.lko Luke Cliiiiiipluln.
It was llko Ltko Champlnln. Tho water
sparkled brightly, stirred by the morning
breeze, and tho hills that run back from
tho sldos of tho bay were well-wooded. We
swung past eieveral Islands. Wo woro clcso
enough to tho shoro to detect the tropical
follngo and there was a fre.ihuess In thp
morning nlr that reminded our soldiers of
homo. Thoro had followed us from Manila
a sldowhcel steamer called the Nunez with
a serviceable draft of six feet, lis uso and
valuo now became apparent.
Two companies of the Forty-wevcnth were
loaded Into eight of the Hancock's pull
boats, and pulled nboard tho Nunez. The
Nunoz towed tho whole outfit toward Sor
sogen, some eight miles up tho bay.
After an hour and a half tho small boats
arrived off Sorsogen and we saw tho town
was decorated with white nnd American
Hags. Tho Helena. Nashv llln nnd thn mm.
vels had preceded tho Nunez nnd Its boats
to Sorsogen and wero anchored In front of
ino town.
General Kobbo and Captain Carlel, Col
onel Howo of tho Forty-seventh, Captain
Bradley of tho Hancock nnd Lieutenant
Kobbe, the general's son, wero on board ono
of tho caravels. This gunboat steamed close
to the wharf In front of tho stono ware
houses along tho water front nnd a pull
beat set the party mentioned on shore. They
wero met by n number of natives and Span
lards, whllo crowds of tho vlllagora stood
and gaped in wonder and curiosity. It
was their first sight of tho American.
Whnt AkuIiiiiIiIo'h Men Toll Natives.
Only three days ngo tho Tngalo leaders
had convincingly told them that Agulnnldo
had driven us out of Manila and held us
prisoners upon vessels In Manila bay.
The Spaniards told General Kobbe that
tho Insurgent forces had evacuated the town
that morning, whereupon Colonol Howe
with an American Hag under bis nrm ond ac
companied by an orderly, walked rapidly
across tho square In front of the church and
raised tho Hag upon n polo facing a build
ing that had tho nppenranco of a inrm.
The soldiers from tho Nunez wero landed on
mo wnari ami, immedlatoly foKnlmr Intn
companies, marched up Into town.
The people seemed Indifferent to our nres.
ence, their only vlsiblo characteristic being
curiosity. All day long they looked at tho
Americans rrom street corners, doorways
nnd second-story windows, nnd several times
crowds of curious had to bo dispersed from
In front of Colonel Howo's headquarters.
Thoro were several Spaniards In town nnd
from thorn was learned something of tho
recent happenings on shore. Sorsogen Is
nn Important shipping port and n district
capital. It has, like the rest of this coast
nnd the Islands of Saraar nnd Leyte, been
blockaded by our vessels bIiico August last
nnd consequently Its people havo suffered
from tho lack of varieties o' food. They
seemed to have had sufficient of rice, llsh
and bananas, which Is the diet of thn poorer
classes, but nil such materials ns came from
Manila had long since been exhausted.
Tho Spaniards said thoy were glad to see
us nnd they hoped for the immediate ro
estnblishmcnt of commercial relations with
Manila.
It seems thero had been stationed In
Sorsogen about 300 Tngal soldiers under the
command of Colonel Leon Paras, Thoro woro
only 100 rifles In tho command, however,
and we were told they bnd llttlo ammunition.
Theso Spaniards had been uniformly well
treated by the Filipinos, thoro had been no
ofllclal Imposition or Injustice, tho Spaniards
were allowed every liberty and they averred
that travel In the country had been safe at
nil times. The town nnd tho provlnco had
been ruled by tho Tngal lenders and such
civil forces as they established wero directly
under the control of tho military and acted
for them.
Priests nud l'rlnrs Driven (till.
Thero havo never been nny Spanish pris
oners In tho provlnco of Sorsogen nnd all
Spanish friars nnd priests were driven away
more than a year ago; churchin are now oc
cupied nnd services conducted by the native
clorgy. Tho natives of southern Luzon are
called VIcoIh. Thoy seem a qulot and peace
ful people, unlikely to give trouble If Tngal
Influence bo removed from them nnd thoy nro
apparently moro anxious to bo let alone to
grow small crops limn to fight nnd die for
tho Agulnnldo Ideal of liberty. This provlnco
Is a hemp producer and ns thoro havo been
no shipments out for six months past con
siderable of this product Is stored here wait
ing transfer to a market.
It appears that tho main body of tho Fil
ipinos retreated toward a village called Cas
tillo, some eight miles distant, but a rear
guard of twenty men wero left In Sorsogen
and only quitted tho outskirts of the town
when General Kobbo'a party landed on tho
wharf.
