ATTORNEY GENERAL, HARMAN
MAKES HI& REPORT.

of Courts In tho Indian Territory

WAsumaTOK, Dec. .Attorney Gen
eral Harmon, in his annual roport to
Congress, showa that tho number of
criminal cases ponding in tho Federal
courts July 1, 1605, was 12,403, an in
rcaso in two years of more than
5,000, though in 1605 25,019 cases wero
disposed of, as compared with 21,741
in 1604. Tho convictions during tho
year arc shown to havo been CO por
cent of tho wholo number, and in
Government civil cases the percentage
of judgments in favor of tho United
States was 02, as compared with 40 in
1P34, and 4? in 1603. Tho expenses of
ho Federal courts havo steadily in
creased from 53,801,808 in 1688 to
S3, 028,223 in 1895. This is accounted
lor in part by tho fact that sinco 1825,
the number of places for holding Fed
eral courts has increased from X8G to
Tho Attorney General says it is yet
too soon to fairly pass judgment on
tho new system of courts for tho In
dian territory, it having been in opcr
atlon only since last March, but he
calls attention to tho fact that next
September tho jurisdiction of tho
courts of the Eastern district of Texas
and the Western district of Arkansas
over the Indian Torntory will entirely
ccusc, and a largo measure of business
in tho courts of tho Territory will
necessarily result. For this reason ho
recommends that itnmedlato appro
priations bo mudo for building at least
one suilluient jail in each of the thrco
The Attorney General calls special
attention to tho fee system in federal
courts nud bays that excessive and Il
legal charges can in some measure bo
avoided by watchfulness and laborious
investigation, but nnests and prosecu
tions on frivolous charges and llimsy
proof, to which part of tho increasing
expenses of tho federal courts are due,
cannot be prevented by tho Depart
ment, of Justice. This can be accom
plished only by abolishing tho sys
tem which, by making tho fees of com
missioners, marshals, clerks and attor-nej-s
tho source of their compensation,
prchents a constant, inducement to
unnecessary arrests and lltljp'tton
and annoyance and loss of time on
those involved, as parties or witnesses,
and indirectly works both material
and moral injury to tho public, lie
sides, a class of professional witnesses
and infoiniers grows up in many sec
tions, to tho scandal of the adminis
tration of justice. Thoro is now no
limit to tho number of commissioners
which tho courts may appoint, and
buggests that tho number bo limited
bv law. Upon tho abolition of tho foo
system, ho says, tho number might bo
largely reduced, and many advantages
would bo gained by giving them final
jurisdiction of petty offenses.
Tho Attorney Gonoral calls atten
tion to the fact that too much of the
time of the supreme court is occupied
by criminal appeals, and suggests that
such appeals bo disallowed, save in
capital cases, by amending tho act of
March 3, 1601, so as to omit tho men
tion of "other infamous'' crimes. This
would operate to give the circuit
courts of appeal jurisdiction which
would bo final of all critniual cases
other than capital, subject, however,
to review by tho supremo court in its
discretion by writ of certiorari.
Prompt action is urged toward work
ing out the itolutiou of the problem
preheated by tho government's rela
tion to tho Central and Union Pacific
railways, ant', as it may bo necessary
or advlsablo for tho government to in
stitute proceedings against one or
both ot these companies, he shows the
necessity of a law giving some court
in tho District of Columbia jurisdic
tion of the cntiro property and all of
the properties in interest. Ho urges
tho imperative demand for tho erec
tion of at least one penitentiary in a
Southern State for tho confinement of
convicts from tho Southern districts.
Tho Attorney General speaks brictly
of the decision of the Supreme court
in the Debi contempt case and says
that tho principles established by tho
opinion are of the highest valuo and
importance. The jurisdiction of tho
courts to issun nnd enforce injunctions
against interference with interstate
commerce and tho passago of mails
was fully maintained, aud it wns held
that the action of tho courts in such
cases was not open to review on habeas

Tcpkka, Kan., Dec. 7. Tho annual

n failure in point of attendance when
comparca with the meetings in tho
early period of tho order's existence.
However, n session was held, with
about thirty delegates present. Very
llttlo was done. Mrs. Emma Troud

Eccretary and treasurer of tho Alliance

Washington, Dec. 7. Diplomatic
ally considered, the last move of Lord
Salisbury's may be regarded as very
clever, for he can easily find pre
cedents to justify his request that tho
British caso be considered on its
morits. As this is all now to this
government, u complianco with
tho request would involve
much patient research and com
parison of authorities, maps and sur
veys. This is calculated to consume,
great deal of time and carry tho issue
along to a pertou when perhaps Ureat
Rritarn, freed from its present embar
rassing position growing out of tho
Turkish complicrtions, will bo able to
devote her entire energies to a settle
ment of tho Venezuelan question.

It is generally agreed that the Re

All that Is said nhout tho origin of thlts

nnd Russia sont their full sharo of tho

and Russian one-tenth of tho wholo.
At this rato of lncroaso Immigration
Is likely to reach 400,000 for tho flacal
7car beginning July 1, 1895, nnd ending
Juno 30, 1S9G. It docs not ncem poBsl

to become again what it has boon. In
18S2 immigration numbered 788,992; in
1891 tho number was 023,804; in other
years It was above 000,000.
Thla great number of newcomers was
attracted by tho reports of prosperous
times, high wages and cheap lands. It

Critics wero not caused by tho mero

were as much surprised as tho demo

Thoy were moro surprised than, tho
democrats last year at tho numerical
proportions of their "landslide" major

show that for the IaBt two years a
power has boon active in American poli

most important results by organized
methods ot tho most secret character.
No ordinary causo relating to tho tariff,
