Judge Frost Denies Tempora
ry Injunction.
(folding that the Bornltmra Have Ade
qnate llrmrCy Id the Suit t’emllog la
Iloagla* Countjr—A Heheurlng Uhaut'
til—Teat of the llttliloo.
Judge Frost yesterday, says tho
Lincoln Journal, rendered his opin
ion In the injunction case brought by
Bartley’s bondsmen to determine the
liability for the money lost to the
state through the school warrant
transaction. The temporary restrain
ing order against the governor and
attorney general before given was va
cated, and the application for a tem
porary Injunction was denied. Later,
on representation of the attorneys for
the bondsmen asking for a rehearing,
May 31 was set as the date. Follow
ing Is Judge P'rost’s opinion:
This Is an application for a tem
porary Injunction. Because of the fi
nality of the court’s order, if the ap
plication is denied, the plaintiffs
should be given the benefit of all
doubt. It may also be said that the
plaintiffs present a bill which appeals
strongly to the conscience of the
rourt, a bill which shows that as be
tween them and the Omaha National
bank, they are sureties and It is
principal. Without passing on the
sufficiency of the cause of action for
equitable relief stated in the bill, It
will be assumed for the purposes of
this decision that Its allegations are
ample for that purpose.
In view of what has already been
said the plaintiffs would be entitled to
a temporary Injunction were there no
jurisdictional questions In the way.
These questions Involve the relations
and obligations of co-ordinate courts,
where one of them has acquired prior
jurisdiction of the parties and of the
subject matter in controversy. To
the mind of the writer, the correct
answers to these questions lead in
evitably to cne conclusion, the denial
of the injunction by this court
Briefly stated, the plaintiffs ask the
district court of Lan< aster county to
restrain William A. Poynter and Con
stantine J. Smyth, who. it is alleged
are respectively governor and attor
ney genera! ef the state of Nebraska,
their deputies and successors in office
from prosecuting in the district court
of Douglas county a suit pending
therein in behalf of the state, and
against ex-5tat*» Treasurer Bartley
and his bendstnen. The injunction is
prayed for only as to one item in that
suit amounting to I291.&S4.05. As to j
that item this court is asked to deter
I* M-MC rv< V.CA m 1 Oil Kv
mine wnetner it was emoezrica uy
Bartley, and If It was. to order tint
the Omaha National hank and the
bondsmen on its depository bond he
compelled to pay said amount, and to
fully exonerate the plaintiffs from the
payment thereof. The sum In ques
tion was on deposit to the credit of
the state treasurer to Illegally pay a
warrant which had been Issued for
the sole purpose of transferring from
the general to the sinking fund the
money lost to the latter by the fail
ure of the Capital National bank.
The state having brought an action .
for that Item among others In the dis
trict court of Douglas county, this
court cannot Interefere by Injunction
with the parties to that suit. Such in
terference would be both against pub- .
lie policy and against the comity
which it Is essential should exist l**
tween the co-ordinate courts of this
land. Let It he borne In mind that
the Douglas county district court pos
sesses Just as ample powers to relieve
from the injustice complained of as
does this court. If the injunction
asked can be granted, then there is
logically no reason why some other
court of Douglas county, could not
in turn enjoin the plaintiffs from
proseruttng this action, providing the
Jurisdiction could be obtained over
them. Conflicts of Jurisdiction of
this character found necessarily re
sult in lessening the respect of the
public for the courts, nor do former
adjudications sanction such procedure.
The law as announced by the better
considered cases, gives to the court
first acquiring Jurisdiction the power
to proceed to a final determination,
and injunctions are ordinarily granted
only to protect the Jurisdiction of the
court which has secured such priority.
Our own supreme court bus accepted
this view. From the syllabus of the
case of Prugh vs. Neb., 414, are tuken
the following paragraphs:
“Courts: Jurisdiction: Injunction.
After a federal court has acquired Jur
isdiction of the parties and subject
matter of u controversy, a state court
may not by Injunction or otherwise In
terfere with the exercise of such Jur
“Accordingly as a general rule, a
■tali- court will not enjoin parties to
an action already In progreaa In a fed
eral court from further proceeding
“The exception* to this ruh* are
based upon the doctrine that In court*
of concurrent Jurlmlit tion that which
ftr-i has obtained Jurisdiction of the
parties ami subject-matter retains It
tor all purtmse*. and by ail necessary
pretest will protect itself in the exer
i ter it that Jurisdiction
It Is true that In that case the dis
pute over the jurisdiction arose be
tween the state and federal courts
While there is a ■entlmeut that the
slatt courts cannot Interfere with
muter* pending in the federnl court,
there are no reasons for the sentiment

equitable powers, nor were there pro
visions for bringing in new parties,
which were frequently necessary in
order to make a complete defense.
These reasons, however, do not exist
in this state. Under our code all dis
tinction between actions at law and
suits in equity are abolished. This
permits not only ancillary proceedings
before the same court In order to ob
tain equitable relief, but also permits
the Betting up of an equitable defense
in that very suit. There are also pro
visions for the bringing in of addition
al parties where these are made neces
sary by the answer of the defendant.
Ttere is another reason, also Juris
dictional why this injunction should
not be granted. The action runs nom
inally against the governor and at
torney general individually, but it is
In reality against the state. The state
being sovereign cannot be sued except
by legislative consent. The adjudi
cated cases do not dearly draw the
line of demarkatlon between what
are suits against public officers, indi
vidually, and what are In reality suits
against the state. The attorney gen
eral has cited the case of Fitts vs. Mc
Ghee, which was decided by the su
preme court of the United States in
January of the present year. That is
a suit against the attorney general
of Alabama, and the court there held
"A suit to retain officers of a state
from taking any steps by means of Ju
dicial proceedings, in execution of a
state statute, to which they do not
hold and special relation is really a
suit against the state."
While that case is perhaps not abso
lutely conclusive of the one at bar,
still it would Beem to Justify the at
torney general's contention that the
present suit is against the state. In an
swer to this the plaintiffs say that as
the state has descended from the plane
of its sovereignty by the institution
of a suit concerning this matter in the
district court of Douglas county, it i
cannot now urge its sovereignty to
prevent Jurisdiction, hut stands exact
ly as any individual would. That ru’.e
loses its force when applied to the
present suit, as it is an entirely inde- |
pendent action. In order to get any
iienetlt therefrom the plaintiffs must
make this plea as a defense in a suit
already instituted by the state in
Douglas county.
In view ot what has been said the
application for temporary injunction
must tie denied and the restraining or
der heretofore entered, vacated. ^
Judge Frost this afternoon decided
to allow the bondsmen of ex-State
Treasurer Hartley another bearing on
their petition for an injunction re
straining the attorney general, gov
ernor and other state officers from
prosecuting them until after tlie lia
bility of the Omaha National bank for
a portion of the shortage of the ex
treasurer is determined in court. Ar
gument on the petition was made sev
eral weeks ago and Monday Judge
Frost refused to grant the injunction,
vacating his temporary restraining
When the adverse decision was ren- |
dered the attorneys for the bondsmen i
Immediately filed objections with a
motion for a rehearing, citing eight
alleged errors. At the time Judge !
Frost expressed his willingness to i
have uf case argued again before the
entire bench if the other judges agreed.
The motion was to have been argued
this afternoon, but the court decided
to grant another hearing without ar
gument being made. Tbe order of the
court refusing to grant the injunction
and vacating the temporary restrain
ing order was revoked.
The case now rests in a much com
plicated condition. There 1r some
doubt as to whether a restraining order
once dissolved can be enforced again
before being argued in court. This Is
precisely what the district court has
sought to do, but the attorney general
stated this afternoon that the suit
against the bondsmen in Omaha could
be commenced, the restraining order
having been once vacated. The case
in the district court here will not be
argued again until Saturday and it is
doubtful if it can be reached by CTlat
time. In addition to the petition for
injunction another obstacle stands in
the way of the prosecution. The case
of the state against the Imndsmen in
Omaha is entered in Judge Powells
docket, and even if the attorney gen
eral is permitted to go ah< ad with his
case It is hardly probable that it would
lie called to trial during the present
term of court, during which nearly all
of the time In Judge Powell's court
will he devoted to the election case.
The attorney general stated this after
noon that an attempt would tie made
to transfer the case to nnother docket.
Intimating that tie might begin the
prosecution at once.

WASHINGTON, June D.-Dlplomatic
relations with Spain, broken off Apr*.1
21, 1898, were formally resumed at 11
o'clock Saturday, when President Mc
Kinley greeted Due d'Arcos, the newly
accredited minister to the United
States, in the Blue parlor of the White
House. Simultaneously In Madrid, It
the program aranged was carried out,
Bellamy Storer, the new United States
minister to Spain, was being present
ed to Christiana, the queen regent,
during the legal minority of his Cath
olic majesty, Alphonso XIII. It was a
notable occasion in the world's history
—the resumption of friendly relations
between two nations which had been
at war and In the brief struggle had
changed the map of the world.
The speeches were especially nota
ble. They were plain spoken and de
void of the usual hazy diplomatic
The ceremony was exceedingly sim
ple. Promptly at 11 o'clock, the hour
set, the two carriages containing the
Due d'Arcos. Secretary Hay and the
secretaries of the new Spanish minis
ter, Senors Riano and Pastor, reached
the White House. Quite a crowd had
gathered to catch a glimpse of the new
minister. The party was Immediately
ushered into the Blue parlor.
The duke was attired in his resplen
dent diplomatic uniform. Across his
coat he wore a scarlet sash and on his
breast sparkled the insignia of half
a dozen orders, the dazzling cross of
the Order of Catholic being the most
conspicuous. He carried his plumed
chapeau In his left hand and the copy
of his address in his right. The secre
taries were likewise attired in their
gorgeous diplomatic uniforms.
On reaching the Blue parlor they |
were presented by Secretary Hay to
Colonel Bingham, who remained with
them while the secretary of state re
tired for a moment. He fmmpuiatelv
reappeared with President McKinley,
to whom he presented the Due d'Arcos
and Senors Riano and Pastor. The
president was cordial hut dignified in
his greeting and Due d'Arcos then read
his address in Spanish. He stood a
little In advance of his aides, facing
the president, while to the rear and
right of the president, stood Scretary
Hay. Colonel Bingham and Assistant
Secretary Cortelvou stood unon the
left. The minister said:
Mr. President: I have the honor to
place in your excellency’s hands the ;
royal letter by which her majesty, the
queen regent of Spain, in the name j
of her august son. King Don Alfonso
XIII., accredits me near this govern- I
meat in the capacity of envoy extraor
dinary and minister plenipotentiary.
I have come to renew the relations
of friendship which have existed from
of old between Spain and the United
States and which were interrupted by
the war of last year. The treaty of
peace which Spain has signed put an
end to that war, and now, looking
only to the future, Spain desires that
her relations with this republic may
be as friendly as they were in times
past and from the days in which this
country was struggling to gain its in
dependence. It is my task to contrib
ute to the renewal of these relations,
to strengthen them and to draw them
cloeer, and in the discharge of it I
hope to be aided by the kindness and
co-operation of your excellency and of j
your government.
The president responded as follows: |
Mr. Minister: I receive with the
greatest gratification the letter by
which her majesty, the queen regent of
Spain, in the name of her august son.
King Alfonso XIII., has accredited you
near this government as envoy extra
ordinary and minister plenipotentiary.
You will find, Mr. Minister, a cor
dial welcome in this country, not only
from those whose friendship you ac
quired during your former residence,
but from all our people, who rejoice
as I do at the renewal of the ancient
bonds of amity which, with a brief
Interruption, have united our nations
for more than one hundred years. That
these friendly relations may be con
firmed and strengthened, to the advan
tage of both people, is my earnest
wish and I can assure you that every
memlter of this government will hear
tily co-operate w ith you to that desira
ble end.
It was noticeable that Due d'Arcos.
in referring to the gratification with
which Spain resumed the friendly re
lations with the United States that
had existed over 100 years, plainly said
that these relations had tieen broken
by war. while the president spoke only
of the relations Interrupted for a
short time
At the conclusion of the address
the president stepped forward and
shook bauds cordially with the new
minister and they engaged In conver
sation In a low tone for a minute or
two. The president gratefully Inquir
ed after the health of the queen ie
gent and the king M« courte nisiy
referred to the due’s former residents
in this country ant his many friends
here and repealed the assurances of
the ronrludlhg words of his formal
greeting that every one here would
unite in making the minister's stay

Whet He Said In HU Talk Before the
Convent loti.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.. June 5.—When
Col. Bryan arrived here a great crowd
met him at the depot. He was escort
ed to the hotel by mounted police and
three bass bands and accompanied by
J. P. Altgeld, George Fred Williams
and bimetallic organizations, Colonel
Bryan held a reception for half an hour
and shook hands with hundreds of
Louisville's leading citizens. After
luncheon he was driven to the audi
torium, where he spoke to an audi
ence which was packed to the doors.
His talk was along the lines followed
by yec-ent speeches made by him. He
"The object of a party is to give
force and effect to the political prin
ciples entertained by the members of
that party. The policy of the party is
determined by the majority of its
me mbers. The democratic party adopt
ed at Chicago principles to the condi
tions then existing. The conditions
existing today require the aplication
of the same principles. No question
brought to the atentlon of the people
by the last campaign has been settled
since th# close of the campaign. The
republican party did not declare the
existing gold standard satisfactory,
but declared that it should be contin
ued until foreign nations would Join
In International bimetallism. The de
mand for the restoration of bimetal
lism does not mean that there are no
other Issues before the people, but it
means that this issue can not be laid
aside or surrendered until the financial
policy of the American people is de
termined by the American people
themselves, without waiting for the
aid or consent of any other nation.”
In reference to the gold democrats
Mr. Bryan said: "I wish to say that
the men who withdrew from the party
In 16% are mistaken, in a large meas
ure, und if I can help them to see the
light and regain them as supporters of
the party, I feel that the time will
come when they will thank me for It.”
The remainder of Mr. Bryan’s re- j
marks were confined to u condemns- :
tion of trusts, the gold standurd and i
the so-called imperialistic policy of j
the republican administration, along !
the same lines us laid down by him !
in speeches in other sections of the j
Preceding the address of Mr. Bryan ■
the Hon. Matt O'Doherty, of Kentucky, j
addressed the convention and directed j
his .remarks chiefly to the financial
question. He dealt briefly, however,
with the Filipino matter, and con
tended that the congress of thed'nited
States had not declared war against
the Filipinos, but that President Mc
Kinley has usurped the authority vest
ed in the congress of the United States
by the constitution, which provides for
such action in cases of exciting hos
tilities with any other nation. His
contention was that the Filipinos had.
like the Americans, an aversion for
the tyrannical ruling of the Spanish
government, and that they have been
fighting to throw off the yoke of ty
The Chief Nays the Army tins Abandoned
LONDON, June 5.—The Daily Chron
icle says that Major Comte Ferdinand
WalRln Esterhazy called at its office
last evening (Friday) with a confiden
tial friend, and, after declaring that
the time had arrived when the whole
truth should be told, although hitherto
both reason of constant orders and in
ducements he had kept silence on the
essential point, made the following
"The chiefs of the army have dis
gracefully abandoned me. My cup is
full and I shall speak out.
"Yes, (raising his voice and glaring)
it was I who wrote the bordereau. I
wrote it upon orders received from
Esterhazy, the Chronicle says, then
proceeded to explain that for months
before 1893 moral proofs had been ob
tained of leakages whtrh were only
possible through officers belonging to
the ministry of war; and it was neces
sary to catch the guilty party by ma
terial evidence. Hence the bordereau.
When asked what the chiefs of the
French general staff would say to this
confession Esterhazy. shrugging his
shoulders, disdainfully replied:
"They will lie as they know how to
lie, but 1 have them right. I have
proofs that they know the whole thing
and share the responsibility with me
and 1 will produce the proofs." He
then denounced the chiefs ns “a set of
scoundrels who have abandoned me
basely,' and added:
"Hut at one time they used to come
to thauk Madame I’uys for her assist
Esterhazy asserted that, quite re
cently. the chiefs sent M. Laguesse a
former deputy, to I,ondon with secduc

shouted, 'but I w ill not he deterred."
