in every street and alley in Heidelberg Is
abln/.u vvltlibunllnir , balconies and windows
framed In evergreens , and covered with
nhiclds hearing the arms of Baden , the
Polltanato andJGermanv. The countless
Hags are , with few exceptions , of those coun
tries. It Is curlou-i that no foreign llass can
be seen but the Kiullsh and American ,
which make a goodly showinr. To-day the
streets of this little city are as crowded
as those of London , New York , or
Paris The stations are so jammed that trains
must bide their time outside. An army of
nberkellnersa , kellners and kamtnet junglcrs
have been posted for temporary duty in the
restaurants and hotels finm theiemote t parts
of Geimany , even Austria and Switzerland.
Quantities of draskies from other towns In

One merry burscli sporting his colors is
seventy-live , and read Latin and crossed
scheagers hero In 1S31. The corps make a
great to do over these "Alte Herrln , " as they
are called , anil treat them with the greatest
consideration , for the rival corps seem to
have sunk hostilities In honor of the jubila
tion and mix freely together , which has not
been the case nt other times. The
arrangements of the commanders leave
much to be desired. There is
a good deal of confusion , and sjme of the
centlemen in chaige seem to have lost their
heads. The chanter of accidents so far covers
two lives. A man putting up decorations on
the university building fell from a scaffold
ing ami was killed , and a man who crowded
onto the track at the crowded station lost
both his legs , the Injury being fatal. Among
the

spanning the > eckar , which was successfully
defended by three hundred Austrians against
a large French force In Napoleon's times.
Thcie are two Immense shields with the red
anil jellovv Baden colors , and two rather
huiiL'ry looking lions in ths center.

tepresentitlve Negley. of Pittsbtirc , to your
coriespomlent this morning , In discussing
he eforts now being made to secure the
right of way for a traction or cable stieet
railroad In Washington. "I knew a New-
York man a fetv years ago who went to Klo
Janeiro and built a street railroad. He bor
rowed SJO.OOO and put It Into the pool as his
share. A street railrond In Klo Janeiro was
n great novelty and the patronage was en
ormous , not only from the start but bas con-
Intied so. Some time ago the man died.
His widow has Just sold one-half of the
share boueht by her husband
"
for S.VuOO ) "for S-VW.C03. The other
mlf of the stock was sold for a million and
n half. The road is knov\ to this dav as the
"Bond ruad , " because the money raised to

bond" , It not only paid up in ten years hut.

Ifagota pay a.s high asX ) and M percent , in-
lerest on investments. I see that a recent
statement of the company there shows that
they paid 40 i > er rent , dividends duiinz the

Washington , where tlie.re i * so much e.xtrav-
auenre nnd people so neiiernllv patronl/o

erty. 1 do not think that Washington ougnt
to be cut up any further by these lines and
It does not occur to me that a charter will be
granted. "
A Talk with Texan Congressmen.
WAsuiMiroN , August 2. The Post says :
Members of the Texas delegation in congress
who represent the border districts do not ap-
piehend any serious trouble as the result of
the present feeling of Indignation aiuona
their constituents owing to the murder of
Fianclsco Arreseurs by the Mexican authori
ties , or from detention of Ldltor Cutting.
Henresentatlve Lanham , of the El Paso dis
trict , sild so far as he knew the matter was
in the hands of ttio state department , and
will be Bottled through regular diplomatic
channels without the slightest effort at inter
ference being made by the people of El Paso
and the suirounding country. In re
gard to Asserettrs' rnurdnr , lie thought
while thu people in the vicinity
of Pledras Negras were doubtless indignant ,
he apprehenued little actual trouble other
then the action taken by the United States
government Oilier members opposed the
Idea of Texas taking upon herself the re
sponsibility of punishing Mexico for the out-
races. Thu murder ot Arreseuis in itself ,
while rendered of more national importance
by the peculiarity of the attending circum
stances , was in tne opinion of tlic e gentle
men only such a crime ns is liable to Imnpen
at any time either in Mexico or any country
and the most that the state department can
ask of the Mexican government is that
Arresenrs murderers' be punished and possi
bly for some remuneration to the widow of
the. murdered man for Her loss. Heprcsenta-
tive Cain will have a conference with Secre-
taty Bayard to-day on the matter.
New York's Bail Ofllccr.
NKW Yonic , August 2. The grand jury for
the August teim of the general sessions
court was sworn in to-day by Judge Cowing.
His honor , referring to tiie case of Hollin M.
Squires , commissioner of public works , said
in his charge : "I wish to call your special
attention to the subject now agltatinc the
public. Grave charges have been made
against a certain public officer , it being
claimed that from willful and wicked me-
tives a public otllco has been handed over tea
a contractor , this contractor , as is claimed ,
being the actual head of the office , the other
only uelii'j In nominal possession of the de
partment. According to common report , it
has been In the hands of this contractor for
some time , and he has had power to give
himself contracts and discharge and appoint ,
so that substantially the office has been in the
hands of a man who lias canied It on lu a
manner no doubt antagonistic to the welfare
of the city and Us taxpayers. The question
of the truth or falsity of these charges aie
for you to pass upon ; I cannot. If it Is true
that this department was turned over , as
stated , there has been a most wicked and
criminal act committed , which demands
prompt action through your hands. "
St. Lnuta Stock Yards Burn.
ST. Louis , August 2. A fire broke out
shortly befoni noon to-day in the national
stock yards at East St. Louis and spread with
such rapidity that the local lire department
was unable to master the flames and an ap
peal tor aid was sent to this city , to which the
engines responded. The lire started in a
lame ha > bain which contained 1.000 tons of
hay , valued at 55.010 , and it was wholly de
stroyed. Thirty sheds , valued at S.WO each ,
were completely destroyed also. The loss so
far amounts to about twenty-five thousand
dollars. President Knox states that it is his
belief that the lire Is of incendiary origin.
The fire was finally gotten under control.
The loss will be about thirty thousand del
lars.
Another Guess on Adjournment.
WASHINGTON. August 2. [ Special 'lele-
grum to the lHi.J Congress will probably
adjoin n on Wednesday or Thursday if Mr.
Kandall and the president will kindly give
their consent. It is a tact that these two
men hold the question of adjournment in
their hands practically this year. Handall is
said to be yielding at last In his obstinate
btaml against the senate on the sundry civil
nppiopiiatlon bills , nnd now it remains to be
seen whether the president lias anything
more to offer in thu shape of a veto.
Mrs. Cleveland Admitted.
WASHINGTON , Aug. 2. Mrs. Cleveland
and her mother attended communion services
at the First Presbyterian church yesterday
moi nlng. Dr. Sunderland , the pastor , pro

admitted upon certificate from the Central
Presbyterian church of Buffalo. "

BOGUS BUTTER BILL A LAW ,
President Cleveland Affixes His Signature
to the Oleomargarine Act
AND GIVES HIS REASONS FOR IT.
s Message to the House Points Out
thcGooil Itemills Inspected a nil
Minor Defects Discovered
In tlic Measure.
The OleomarRarmc Bill Sljjneil.
WASHIMIION , August 2. The president
aas signed the oleomargarine bill , and sent
the followlnp message to the house of repre
sentatives statins his reasons for opposing
It :
To the House of itcprcscntativcs :
1 have this day approved the bill originat
ing In the house nt representative ? , entitled
"uti net denning butter ; also imposing n tax
Ulion and tegulating the manufacture , site ,
Importation and exportation oC oleomaigar-
Ine. " Tills Icuislailon has awakened much
Interest ainon the people ot the country ,
anil earnest argument has been addressed to
Lhe executive tor the purpose of initiieiiciitg
Ills action thereon. .Many , in opposition ,
have uiged its dangerous character us tending
to bre.ik down the boundaries between the
proper exercise ot legislative power by fed
eral and state authoiity ; many in favor of
the enactment have represented that it prom-
bed great advantages to the larger portion of
our population who badly needlellet ; and
those on both sides of the question ,
v\hoseadvocacy or opposition is based upon
nu bro.idi'r tonndatlou than local or personal
interest , have outiiumbeted all others. This ,
upon It * tace and in Its main fentities. Is a
levenue- bill , and was lirst Introduced in the
house of lepiesentatlves , wherein the consti
tution declares that all bills for the raising of
levenuo shall originate. The constitution
has invested congress wtlH vety wide legtsla-
tl\e discretion , botli as to the necessity ot tax
ation and the selection of the objects of Us
burdens , and though , if the question was
presented to me as an original moposltlon , 1
might doubt the present need of increased
taxation , 1 doom it my duty in this instance
to defer to the judgment of the leglslat.ve
branch of the government , which has been so
emphatically announced in bolli houses of
congas * upon the passage of tins bill. More-
oer , those who desire to see remoTed the
weight of taxation now pressing upon
the j < eople from other directions may
well be justified in the hope and expectation
that the selection of an additional subject 01
internal taxation , so well able to be.ir it , will
in consistency be followed by legislation le-
liovlug our citizens trom other revenue bur
dens , rendered by the passage of this bill
even more than heretofore unnecessary and
needlessly oppressive. It lias been
ureed as an objection to this measure
tli.it while purpoitlng to be legis
lation for revenue , its real purpose is
to destroy , by use of the taxing power , one
industiy ot our people for the protection and
beneht of another. If entitled to indulge in
such a suspicion as a basis of otliclal action
tills ease , and if entirely satisfied that the
consequences Indicated would ensue , 1 would
doubtless lecl constrained to interpose execu
tive dissent. But 1 do not feel called upon to
luterpiet the motives of congress otherwise
than oy the appaient character ot a bill which
has been presented tome , and lam convinced
Unit the taxes' which it creates cannot pos
sibly destiov the open and iggitiinate manu
facture and sale ot the thing upon which it
is levied , It tills article has the merit
whice its friends claim foj it , and if the
people ot the land , with lull knowleu e of
its real character , desire to purchase and use
it , the taxes enacted oy tills bill will permit
a tair protit to both manufacturer and
dealer , if the existence of the commodity
taxed and the profits of its manufacture and
sale depend nuon disposing of It to the
people tor something else winch itdeceitfully
imitates , the entire enterprise is a fraud and
not an industry : and if it cannot endure the
exhibition of its real character , which will be
affected by the inspection , supervision and
stamping which this bill directs , the sooner
it is destroyed the better in the interest-
talr dealing , buch a result would not furnish
the lirst Instance In the history of
legislation , in which a revenue bill produced
abonelit which was merely incidental to its
main purpose. Theie is certainly no Indus
try better entitled to the incidental advant
ages , which may follow this legislation than
our tanning and dairy interests ; and to none
of our people should they be less begrudged
than our tanners and dairymen. The de
pression of their occupations , the haul ,
steady and often uuremnneiativc toil which
such occupations exact , and the burdens of
taxation which our airiiculturahsts neces
sarily bear , entitle them to every legitimate
consideration. Nor should tlieio be opposi
tion to the Incidental eil'ect of this legislation
on the phrt of those who profess to be en
gaged honestly and fairly In themanutactuio
and sale of n wholesome and valuable article-
of food , which , by its provisions ,
may bo subject to taxation. As
lonz as their business is carried on
under cover and by false pretenses , such men
have bad companions in those whose manu
factures , however vile and harmful , take
their place without challenge with the better
part in a common crusade of deceit against
the public , lint If this occupation and its
methods are forced into light , and all these
manufactures must thus either stand ni > on
their merits or fall , the good and bad must
soon part company and thetittcst only will
survive.
Not the least Important Incident related to
this legislation Is the defense allurded to the
consumer against the fraudulent substitution
and sale of un imitation for a genuine article
of teed of very general household use. Not
withstanding the immense quantity of the
article described In this bill , which is sold to
peoole tor their consumption as food , and
notwithstanding the claim made that its
mannfactuie supplies a cheap substitute
for butter , 1 venture to say that hardly a
pound ever entered a i > oor man's house under
Its real name and In its real character. While
there should bo no governmental regulation
of what a citizen shall a.u , it Is certainly not
a cause of iegret If , by legislation of tills
character , he Is afforded the means by which
lie may better protect himself against imposi
tion in meeting the needs and wants of his
dally life. Having entered upon this legisla
tion , it is u manifest duty to render it as
effective as possible in the accomplishment of
all the good which thotild legitimately follow
in its train. This leads to the Migeestlon
that the art'do proposed to be taxed and the
circumstanced which subject It theieto should
bo clearly uud witliirni.it distinctness dclined
In the statute. It seesus to me that
this object has not been completely
attained In the phraseology ot the
second section of the bill , and that a ques
tion may well arise as to the precise condi
tion of the article to bo taxed must assume
In order to be regarded as "mado in Imitation
or semblance ot butter , or when so made ,
calculated or Intended to be sold as butter or
farbatterine. "
Tno fourteenth and fifteenth sections of
the bill , in my opinion , aru in danger ot be
ing cousttucd as an interference with the
iKjfleo iwwurs ot the states. Not being en
tirely hatlslled of the constitutionality of
these piovlslons and regarding them us not
boine so connected and Interwoved with the
other sections a. , if found Invalid , to vitiate
the entlio measure , I have determined to
comnumd them to the attention of the house
with the view to an immediate amendment
of the hill , Ii It should be deemed necessary ,
and If it is practicable at this late day in the
session of congress. The tact , too , that thn
bill dot-s not take effect by its terms until
ninety days have elapsed after its approval ,
thus icavlns It but one month In operation
before tun next session ot con
gress , \vhcu , If time does not now- per
mit , the safety ami etllclency of the
iiH'asuro may bo abundantly protected
by remedial legislative action , and a desire to
see realized tiie beneUclal results which It la
exjwclcd will Immediately follow the inaugu
ration of this le.lalation , have had thclrtntlu-
enio in determining my ofliclal action. Tno
considerations which have been referred to
will , 1 hope , justify this communication and
the suggestions which U contains.

The House Proceeilltiii1 * .
WASHINGTON. August 2. The speaker
laid before the house the bill to Increase the
naval establishments , with the senate amend
ments thereto and Mr. Herbert of Alabama
moved the concurrence in the amendments.
Messrs. Herbert , anJ Boutelle of Maine en
tered Into a discussion as to the position
taken by the republican and democratic par
ties upon the question of the Increase ot the
navv , and charges and counter-charges of hos
tility to the naval hill were indulged In.
Then Mr. Heed of Maine took a hand In
the debate and arraigned In scveic terms the
democratic majority for Its delay In bringing
Important public measures before the house
and preventing Intelligent consideration and
discussion. The history of tins house was
the history of refusal to transact public busi
ness for the purpose of enabling the demo
cratic pirty to show on the stump figures
which Indicated not economy but failure to
spend the money of the government to meet
the necessities of the government. Dining
the past w eek or two scenes had been enacted
here which ought to make the leglslatois
blush. Bills of serious importance , after in
cubation of six months , had been
thrust upon the house when there
was no opportunity for discussion.
Whatever the house had done , It had ren
dered futile by delay. The surplus resolu
tion had been put through with insufficient
debate and In such form that It could not re
ceive the assent of the senate. Instead of
passing the Cullom Inter-state coinmcice bill ,
and thus giving a measure of relief to the
country , the house had passed a different
bill and thrown the matter Into conference
and nothing would be done. Whatever the
democratic majority presented to the house
It presented In such a fashion that debate
could not reach it , though it was the very life
and essence of honest , manly legislation
that there should be full and free discussion.
Mr. Iteagan , of Texas , regarded Mr. Heed's
remarks as to the Inter-state commerce bill
as extraordinary. That bill had been corn-
batted by the whole railroad powers of the
country. Attorneys and lobbyists had al
ways been here to retard action by the house ,
and this was the lirst time In the history of
its consideration that the bill had been past
at a lirst session , The gentleman ( Heed )
complained that the house had not passed
the senate bil Why had not the senate in
the past ac cdipon the bill as the
house had tlnce times passed It. The bill
was now in conference , and if the confer
ence led to no result it was because the
newer which had heretofore prevented
action would continue to prevent it. He
was sure that it was the desire of the house
conferees that some result should be reached.
The senate amendments to the naval es
tablishment bill were concut red in , and the
bill , after the signatures of the speaker and
itJururraldcnt of uio senate have been at
tached , " will go to the president for his
approval.
.Mr. Handall , of Pennsylvania , from the
conference committee on the sundry civil
appropriation bill , repoi ted disagreement.
Alter a sharp debate on the senate's Yellow
stone park amendment , the conference re
port was agreed to and a further conference
was oidered.
On motion of Mr. Handall , the joint reso
lution was passed extending until August 5
the provisions of the joint resolution pro
viding temporarily for the expenditures of
the government.
The speaker proceeded lo a call of the
states for a the introduction ol bills.
Mr. Baker , of New Vork , offered a resolu
tion of recapitulation , self-commendation ,
modest laudation , and hearty congratulation
by the responsible majority of the house. The
reading of this was demanded by Mr. Payne ,
of Pennsylvania , and the document proved
to bo "stump" paper containing n severe
arraignment of the democratic majority in
the house ami the democratic president for
sins of omission nnd commission.
Several times Mr. Hcagan Interrupted the
reading and objected to a stump speech being
Injected Into the proceedings of thu house
muter false pretenses.
The speaker ruled that as the document
was presented under the call of states and
was in the form of a resolution , it must bo
received. He added dryly that the resolution
was not an attack upon the house but upon
the democratic party , and that ho thought
th democratic party could stand It.
The resolution which was endorsed for ref
erence to the "steering committee. " having
beenrcad.Mr. | : Handall said that he uld not con
slderit either respectful or decent. Hetliere-
fora moved to ictiun the resolution to the
member who offered it.
air. Baker asked consent to withdraw It ,
but an objection was made.
.Mr. Payne could not .see that the resolution
contained a word that was not true. There
was nothing disrespectful.
Mr. Handall said that during his experi
ence in the house ho had never seen such a
proceeding as the piescnt , and ho thought it
unworthy of an Ameiican house of represen
tatives. Hence it was lie made the motion
he did.
Mr. Baker said ho had no purpose or in
tention of saying anything that would be dis
respectful to tlm majority of the house , lie
thought It was only necessary for him to as
sure nls friends on the other bide of tils per
sonal esteem and regard. It had been his
purpose to relieve some member of the labor
of preparing a resume of the excellent
work which had been pet formed
this session. But In view of the fact that his
friend fiotu Pennsylvania ( Randall ) was
grieved , he would ask unanimous consent to
withdraw the resolution. But again consent
was refused , and Mr. Randall' * motion to re
turn the resolution was ariecd to.
Mr. Scott , of Pennsylvania , offered a reso
lution calling on the secretary of the treasuiy
for information respecting the coinage of sil
ver dollars. Kefei red.
Mr. Atkinson , of Pennsylvania , Introduced
a bill to prevent the ac iiiisition ot real prop-
perty bj corporations. Keferred.
On motion of Mr. Mason , of Illinois , the
rules were suspended and the house by a vote
of 107 veas to live nays passed with n verbal
amendment the senate bill Increasing the
pension of soldiers who have lost an arm or/
leg in the .service.
The house then adjourned.
In the Senate.
WASHINGTON , August 2. The conferees
on the sundry civil appropriation bill re
ported a disagreement on that measure.
Many points of difference have been
adjusted however , and only matters
that require the action of the next con

surveys ; public land surveys ; occupancy of

In reference to the Yellowstone park Item ,
Mr. Plumb declared that the paiU wai In the

He had been notified time and again that un
less ho withdrew his opposition to the bcheme
to build a railroad through the park the park
would be broken up. The railroad company
had a lobby In Washington comnoaud of
newspaper correspondents and others who
were engaged In assalllug benators and at
tacking their character.
After further discussion the senate , on mo
tion ot Mr. Vest. Insisted especially on Us
disagreement to the Yellowstone park Item ,
and. on motion of Mr. Allison , in-isted gen
erally on Its disagreement to tl > othr lU-ms ,
and furtner confrrenfe was ouleml.
The -chair jux-seuted the re jOlution offered

dptino his position upon the silver question.
The resolution went over until to-morrow.

The Cuttlnjj Cnse.
WASHINGTON , August a. In icsponsc to
resolution of tiie senate asking for Informa
tion concerning the alleged Illegal detention
of A. K. Cutting by the Mexican authorities
at El Pajo del Korte , the ptesldent trans
mitted to the senate to-day a icport of the
secretary of state , togethci with voluminous
mass of correspondence relating to the case.
Under date of , tuly 1 , United States Consul
Briis'lmm , at Kl Paso del Norle , forwarded
to thn United States Minister Jackson , nt
Mexico , a full statement of the facts attend
ing the arrest and Impiisonmcntof Cutting
and an announcement of his ( Btigham'n )
failure to secure any reply to his application
for a fair trial or release on ball for Cutting.
On July 0 , the United States minister -ought
from M. Matcscal , Mexican secietarj of for
eign affairs , the proper relief tor Cutting.
The follow-In ? day M , Mirescal replied tlmt
he had recommended the goveinor of Ohl-
liuahua to sec that prompt and full juntlco
was administered. On July 17 , Conmil
Brigliam staled that Cutting was still n
piisoner and nothing lud been done lor din
release. The secretary says the imprison.
nient of this American citizen
has thus continued for Inlly
a month without explanation or the prospect
of any. He ( Secretary Bayard ) , on July IV ,
addressed a tclegiam to Minister Jackson ,
lecitlng all the precedent correspondence anuT
facts , and stating the legal position assumed-
by tills government as a giound for dcinand-
ini ; the icleasc of citizens. Minis
ter Jackson , on July 'i ! , telecrap'-'cd '
the refusal of the Mexican government
to accede to the telegraphic demand of Kecio-
tarv Bayard for Cutting's lelease. which ww
followed by another telegram giving the
Mexican ica-ons. Consul Biigham on July
'M telegraphed that the gov ernor of Chihuahua
was pushing the trial of Cutting , who
Iciioied the proceeding. * . On July S7
the sectetary mailed additional
instructions to > I mister Jackson. The .secre
tary , in this letter , iefei to the claim of the
Mexican minister heie , based on Mexican
lav\s. whereby jurisdiction is lussiinivd by
Mexico over crimes committed against
.Mexicans in the United btaiiitt ,
or any foieicn countiy , and his
contention that mulct this law the pnblira-
tion of libel in Texas was made eogni/iib !
and punishable in Mexico. The ehilin of
jurisdiction in Mexico was pori'inptorllj and
positively denied by Seeietaiy Bayard , wl.o
declared" that the United States would not
assent or permit the existence of such rxtm
teiritoriaf foice to be given to Mexican
law. "Mr. Homero1 he says , "finally assmed
him that Cutting would be released in a veiy
short time. " Convinced ol the trlcndl } and
conciliatory spirit influencing the Mexican
goveicment , the secietary intorms
the consul that , in his opinion ,
all questions of conflicting Impr
ests between the two uovcinmcnls can ,
without dilliculty , be amieahiy , honorably
and satisfactorily adjusted. In ins 'iciwrt
the secretary sa > s , touchlne the Mexican
Jaws cited by Mr. Itomero'Thifrconllict of
Inw is even more profound than the literal'
dilfeience of eorrcsuondlnc statutes , for it
affects the nndciljin ; piinelples of
security to personal libi'itv and lieedmn
ot speech , or expression , vvhbh are amo K
the main objects Bought to be seemed by our
framework of government. The present
case may constitute a precedent fraught with
most serious results. Thu alleged offense may
be , and undoubtedly in the picscnt case IB ,
within the United btates held to be a mis
demeanor , not of a high tirade , but in Mexico
ice may be as-sociated with penal results of
the gravest character. An act may beeieated
by Mexican statutes an ofieiise of high giado
which in the United States would not be
punishable in any degiee. The safety
of our citizens and all others
lawfully within our jurisdiction would be
Impaired If not wholly destroyed by admit
ting the power of a foreign state to define
offenses and apply penalties to acts com
mitted within the Jurisdiction of thn United ?
btates. Tqo United States and states
composlne this Union contain the only forum
for trial ot offenses against their laws , and to
concede the jurisdiction ot Mexico over Cut
ting's case , as it Is stated In Con.su ! Hrlg-
ham's report , would ho to stibitilute the
jurisdiction and lavva of Mexico for thereof
the United States over offenses committed
holely within the United States by adti/en
of the United States' . The olfonsc alleeed li
the publication In Tex-.is by a citi
zen of the United Mates of an
article deemed llbelou ? and criminal in
.Mexico. No allegation ot Its circulation in
Mexico by Cutting Is inside , and no such eir-
ciilation was practicable 01 even possible. b < ! -
caic-e the arrest was Minimal 11 } made on tlin
same day of publication in thn
English faiisua.ro in Texas , on the
cominir of the alleired wiiler or publisher ,
Into Mexico , and the Mexican coricbpond-
ence accompanying M. Marcscal's refusal to
release Cutting , found In the accompani
ments to Minister Jackson's dispatch of
July 22 , 18 . , shows that the one hnndied
and eighty sixth article ol the .Mexican cotln
is beyond the jurisdiction claimed , bnder
tills pictcnsion it is obvious that any eilitor.or
publisher of any ncutidapcr niticlu within
the limits and jurisdiction of the United
States could he : u rested and punished in
.Mexico if the same were deemed objection
able to officials ot that country after Mexican
methods of administering justice , should ho
be found within those binders. Aside from
the claim ot extradition power tints put fortli
for the laws ot Mexico and extending their
jurisdiction over the alleged offenses ad
mittedly charged to have been committed
within the borders of the United States , are
to bo considered arbitiary nnd oppressive
proceedings which , as mensiucd by the con
stitutional standard of thn United
Statss. destioy the substance ot
