MESSAGE ON NEGRO TROOPS
President Tell3 Senate His Rcasonc
for Dismissing Men.
Washington, Jan. IS. President
Roosevelt gent to the senate a special
message regarding the Rtownsvillo
Incident, which gives tho additional
evidence collected by Assistant Attor
ney General Purely and Major Block
8oni, who were sent to Texas by the
president to investigate the affair.
Tho president submitted with his mes
sage various exhibits, including maps
or Brownsville and Fort Brown, a
bandoleer, thirty-three empty shells,
t.ovcn ball cartridges picked up In the
streets a few hours after the shoot
ing, thrqe steel jacketed bulleta and
tome scraps of the casings of otl It
bullets picked out of tlfu houses into
which they "lrad ben fired.
Tho president declares that the evi
dence Is positive that the outrages
of Aug. 12 were committed by some of
the colored troops that have been dis
missed and that some or all or tho
members of tho three companies of
the Twenty-fifth Infantry had knowl
edge of the deed and have shielded
the guilty ones.
The n'gro troops are referred to by
tho president In his message ns
"midnight assassins" and ho declnres
that very few, If any. or tho soldiers
dismissed "without honor" could liavo
been ignorant or what ocrurrcd. That
part of tho order which bars the sol
diers from all civil employment under
tho government Is revoked by tho
president. This clause, the president
says, was lacking in validity. The dis
charged troops, however, will bo for
ever barred from re-enllstlng In tho
army or navy, and ns to this the presi
dent says that "there Is no doubt of
my constitutional and legal power."
Secretary Taft's report, giving tho
sworn testimony or witnesses, Is trans
mitted with the message. The testi
mony or fourteen eye-wltncsscs Is giv
en and the president declares that the
evidence Is conclusive that the weap
ons used wor Springfield rifles, now
used by tho United States troops, in
cluding tho nogro troops who were In
the garrison at Brownsville.
POPE TO FRENCH CATHOLICS

riicro was, however, great consola
tion in the Tact that the Catholics ol
Franco were united. The French gov
ernment's declaration o! war was not
only against the Christian faith, but
against, all spiritual ideas. The
French Catholics must b prepared
for all sorts of trials, but they wero
certain of finnl victory. Contrary tc
statements on tho BUbjoct. the church
did not desire a religious w'ar, Involv
ing violent persecutions. Belug a. mis
sionary of peace and carrying out hei
mission loyally, the church did not
willingly expose herseH to wnr and
persecutions, as she did not desire to
see her children suffering. Regarding
tho ecclesiastical properties, the en
cyclical said the pope had not aban
doned them. The French government
had imposed on French Catholics an
organization which tho church was
absolutely unable to accept without
Imperiling her existence as a divine
Institution. The church could not pre
vent the unjust spoliation in progress,
As for tho progressed cultural asso
ciations, they nro contrary to tho ec
clesiastical hierarchy given to the
church by the divine founder, himself
nnd tho pope condemned them In spite
of the material injuries involved at
the hands of tho government.

LAND MEN FOUND NOT GUILTY
Modisett, Dale and Smoot Are Acquit
ted by Jury at Omaha.
Omaha, Jan. 11. "Not guilty" was
tho verdict brought In by the jury
trying A. R. Modisett, Dale and Smoot
of Rubhvllle on a charge of conspir
acy to get public land ror ranch use.
Tho jury had been out more than
eighteen hours and had come in once
to ask further instructions.
Albert Modisett, Horace C. Dale and l
William Smott wero charged with I
conspiracy to defraud tho government
of something like 40,000 acres of pub-.
lie land in Sheridan county by means
of fictitious homestead entries. Al-'
though Al Marie Modisett, a brother '
of Albert, was jointly Indicted with
tho others, there wns no testimony In
troduced to inculpate him, and there
Tore Judge Munger instructed the jury
to find a verdict of acquittal for him.
The indictments charged conspir
acy to defraud tho government of pub
lic lands and also charged conspiracy
to subornation of homesteaders to
make false oaths.
The ranchmen did not seek to com
bat tho testimony introduced by the
government, but acted upon the the
ory that it was lawful to get Indians
to file and to execute grazing contracts
Tho government strove to make Its
chief showing on the Indian and sol
diers widows filings. That those
people were Induced to file, not for
their own excluslvo uso nnd benefit,
but for the benefit or Modisett, and
that they were procured to swear raise
atlldavlts was unquestionably the
strongest phase or the prosecution.
This was the first land prosecution
In Nebraska In which Assistant Dis
trict Rush failed to get a conviction.
