THEODORE SHONTS REFUSES HIS
WILL NOT REPAIR DUKE ESTATES
But He Has Consented to Give a Sub'
tantlal Dowry Wedding , After All ,
May Not Take Place In May , as Had
Washington , April 18. The dopar- .
turo of Theodora P. Shouts , former.
chairman of the Pnnnnia canal coinj
mission , with his two daughters for
Now York , where ho Is now head of I
the Metropolitan traction Interests , has
again revived tnllc concerning the en-
r pngement of Miss Shouts to the Due
Engagement Is Off.
If there ever was an engagement It'
Is now off , as Washington society has
the story , and the reason for this failure -
uro of another international alliance
is said to be the refusal of Mr. Shouts
to grant tne ducal demand for a settle
It is accepted here as the correct
eralon of the departure of the duke
; 'ithout a bride that Mr. Shonts stood
firmly for the American Idea of ihar-
riago settlements. Ho Is reported to
have told De Chaulnes that he would' '
give his daughter a stylish wedding ,
provide her with a trousseau fit for a
princess and a substantial wedding al
lowance that would keep her in pin I
money for a long time , but to enter'
Into any agreement to settle an income'8 ' ,
on her for life before marriage , this
he would not do.
Duke is Short on Cash.
Personally the head of the Shonts
household wants to see his daughter
happily married , and , if ho hud any
objections to the French nobleman he
was willing to put them aside if Miss
Shonts was patlsfled with the duke.
So , according to some of he wise ones ,
the match will never come off , as the
duke Is reported to "need the money , " , |
for , while ho Is long on lineage and
incumbered estates , ho Is short on
May be a Love Match.
To nil appearances the two young
people are really In love. "But what
can a duke and duchess do without
sufficient ments to keep up their end
of the social game ? " asks Washington
society. Still , some believe the young
people may yet decide to marry with
out the settlement and take their
chances on papa's determination not
rehabilitate the De Chaulnes

A UNITED STATES GEOLOGIST
SAYS THEY TRAVEL IN CYCLES
Prof. Haynes , Who Predicted the

Washington , April 18. "PIcnso do

said Prof Ohm lea Wlllnrd llnyes of
the United Status geological suivoj ,
who Rome tlmo ago predicted the
earthquake that occui'red In Mexico
yesterday the other day. "But 1 will
not ho sui prised If the next eaithqnako
Hhould occur In the United States of
"A Wild Prediction. "
"It was a pure guess , " ho said. "It
Is Impossible to pi edict with any ac

occurrence of an eatthqiiake , but our
knowledge of the geological structure

Twelve Men In the Box , Subject to
Fifteen Peremptory Challenges.
Sun Francisco , April IS. After pro
limlnarles , examinations , adjourn'
meats and other delays occupying in
all twenty-two days , a trial Jury panel ,
subject to the exercise of filteeii peremptory -
emptory challenges ten by the de-
and five by the prosecution
was completed in the Ruef case.
When the trial vvas icbiimed , thirty-
five talesmen out of a drawn venire
ot fifty Issued to complete the panel ,
answered their names In court.
Twenty-six of the thirty-five escaped
serving by satisfying Judge Dunne
that their excuses were valid. Out
of the nine remaining , four tentative
jurors were chosen in the course of
the day , thus filling the box.
The time has now arrived for the
peremptory challenges of the jurors
and much speculation is Indulged In as
tcsi whether the entire panel will be
set aside in the exercise of this prlv
liege or whether as many as half of
the twelve will survive the final scru
tiny of Ruef's prosecutors and do
fenders. It is thought likely that at
least another week will be required for
the permanent filling of the panel
after the peremptory challenges have

Al law rests upon this throughout

known ' to alt upon n case In which ho
was secretly Interested , he > would bo
dishonored ) und expelled from his high
ofllce. If any Individual loluaod to
submit his dispute with a neighbor
to disinterested parties and Insisted
upon being his own judge , ho would
violate ' ( the first principled of justlie.
If ho resorted to force In defense of
his right to Judge , ho would ho dls-
honoied as a breaker of the law. Thus ,
peace ! ' ' with Justice Is secured through
arbitration , never by one of the par
ties sitting ns judge In his own cause.
Nations being only aggiegutes of In
dividuals , they will not rench justice
In their Judgments until the same
rule holds good , viz- That they , like
Individuals ' , shall not sit OK judgps in
their own cause. What Is unjust for
individuals , Is unjust for nations.

wrong ; It being the first principle of
Justice j , that men shall not be judges
In | their own cause , to refuse to sub-
mlt to Judge or arbitrator Is unjust ,
banco not right , for the essence or
righteousness Is Justice. Therefore ,
men who place Justice or righteousness
above peace practically proclaim that
.they will commit Injustice and discard
righteousness by constituting them-
solves solo Judges of their own cause
in violation of law , Justice and right ,
Civilized man has reached the conclu-
slon | that ho meets the claims of jus-
