opinion in Washington of the Boyd-Thnycr

'I'liK Br.n correspondent Interviewed about
twenty of the loading republicans nhd demo

supreme court was aogardod ns Just nnd good
Below is appended some ot those opinions
nnd comments. It would bo repetition lo
quote moro than nro given for tboro is a
monotonous similarity lu Iho comments ot
publio mon generally. The observations of
well known lawyers and statesmen alone
nro given. Generally speaking it is
believed tbut the Boyd senior
completed his citizenship prior lo iho close
of 1651 as alleged by the appellant and there
fore Iho sou Inherited citizenship. It is the
opinion of all logsslulors who hava hud to do
with tbo making of new states thnl Ibo en
abling net of Nebrnska conferred citizenship
upon nil white citizens ( moaning all but In
dians ) when the territory became n state and
thnt Boyd bad citizenship thrist upon him If
be did not hnvo It before. There Is appended
nlso the pith of comment from the loading
newspapers of Iho oast. It shows ulso that
tboro Is but ono view taken by Iho press of
Iho supreme court's decision.
Comment * ol Lending Statesmen.
Following nro the comments of tbo loading
republicans In congress , as talten stenograph-
Ically lor Tun UBB today :
Senator Allison of Iowa I bollovo the de
cision Is Just uu'l right bocuusu the supreme
court bus said si. There can bo no question
but thnt Iho naturalization of u parent is suf-
llciont to confer citizenship upon tbu child.
Secondly , there can bo no question that , the
enabling act , which specifies that all resi
dents of a territory shall become citizens of
thu stnlo when the territory is admitted to
statehood , will stand the test of law. The
decision can have un possible political In-
Ihicuco in Iowa or elsewhere , for It Is not a
t v political question. It was simply n quostlon
\ wholhor Mr. Boyd had become a citizen of
Senator Wilson of Iowa I hnvo not looked
" the decision ever und would not want to
make n specific comment until I hud carefully
read the views of the suuromcmo court. Cer
tainly the conferring of citizenship upon Ibe
father would have vested citizenship in tbo
minor son , nnd no ono would question tlio
light of congress to confer citizenship upon a
resident of territory upon admitting Iho ter
ritory to stnlehood. 1 don't see how the de
cision of Iho supreme court ns it stands , or if
it hud gone the other way , could have nny
possldlo influence upon Iho polilics Of Ne
braska as Iho real question involved was not
partisan nnd without any political signifi
.Sound I'rlnelpli ) unit Good Law.
Senator Sanders of Montana I have not
road the decision yet , but , If I understand it ,
ono of the grounds upon which the citizen
ship of Boyd was declared tbo principle nnd
tbo law are both sound. It is certainly coin-
potent , for congress to declare nil residents
of a territory citizens of the now state In ad
mitting Ibo territory to statehood. Why ,
wo mnde the residents of California citizens
by Ibo simple trouty in which wo secured
the territory of Cnliforia.
Sonntor Cnroy of Wyoming The decision
wns Just and right. The republicans can
afford to bo liberal in matters of citizenship
when it relates to ono who has so long lived
in a state und boon regarded by ivory ono as
W / n citizen. Besides , wo can afford lo lot the
V - democrats lake Iho oflico under such condi-
' * lions ns Ihoy cot llttlo else.
Sonntor Dubois of Idaho I am glnd tbo
supreme court took this viow. I hnvo bud
from the first that It Is not n question lo bo
quibbled ovor. The republicans cannot
afford to sock technicalities in orkerto secure
the oflicos. Boyd wns n citizen nnd bo
should bavo had tbo ofllcc ntouco.
Niuer Should Have lieun liaised.
Kopresontallvo Perkins of Sioux City
I tblhk the raising of the question of citizenship -
ship against Boyd was lll-advlsod. It
dragged Into polilics a snored privilege and
should bavo had no connection with other
questions before the people. I bolluvod
Boyd was a citizen and have thought so all
the ! time. I think that Governor Thayer
should hnvo conceded Boyd's ' eligibility lethe
the ofllco und vacated the chair promptly.
I don't believe that iho decision of the
supreme court will cut any figure whatever
in Nebraska politics because It wns not u
political question and under the name cir
cumstances would probably have boon raised
apnlnst a republican.
Representative Picklor of South Dakota
I hnxo a great deal of faith In the supreme
courl. 1 ttllnk It is Just and bases its conclu
sions upon good laws. The decision is un-
ciuosllonably right , viewed from ovor.v point ,
1 do not think tbo decision will have any po <
lltlcnt influence In Iho stato. The people un
derstand tbo motives which prompted the
contest nnd have already made up their con
Representative C. D. Henderson of Iowa
I have not kept run of the case ; hnvo not
rcan Iho decision of Iho supreme court , and
would not , therefore , want lo oxprons nn
opinion. It Is n question for tbo people ol
Nebraska and for the lawyers of the country
lo comment upon.
Vle\\K of Lending Democrat * * ,
Hero nro the most Important vlows froir
domocrnts In congress. Chairman Sprlngoi
of the committee on wavs and moans , the
democratic loader of tbo house , nnd probably
tbo best posted upon the quostlon , having
had much to do with tbo admission of states
into Ibo union during Ibo lust quarter of out
century I hnvo only boon nblo lo give
cnsunl examination of the decision of tbt
supreme courl , out from my reading of the
testimony I am satisfied tbat the court has
decided rightly. In the constitution of the
states which bavo como Into tbo union tboj
generally provide that all persons ulso whc
wcro the residents of the state should bo
rn mo citizens thereof. The constitutions ol
Illinois , Iowa , Indiana aud Nebraskt
so specify , and many of the othei
states provide that all persons therein
residing at the tlmo of admission are to be
citizens nnd Iqoroln entitled to voto. In this
way Boyd's father became u voter aud a cltl
ten of Nebraska. The admission of Nebraska
braska Into tbo union with tbat provision
was u vlrtval rntlllcnllon of the citizenship o
persons In tbat territory. Mr. Bovd hai
held many ofllces In Nebraska , wns a'uoldle :
In the lute war and to deny bis citizenship a
this time would bo a great Injustice and i
travesty upon legal methods. The dissent

Chairman Outhwalto of the house com

of an adverse character upon any part qf in

vlrtuo of bis father's tdps toward natural !

LINCOLN , Nob. , Fob. 3. [ bpeclnl to THE
BEE. ] The question "What does Governor
Thayer propose to do i" has probably been
propounded a hundred times this afternoon
by as many inlerosted Individuals. Up to
the present writing It has not been answered ,
any rumors or reports to the contrary not
withstanding. Something of a sensation de
veloped this afternoon on tbo strength of a
rumor tbat Governor Tlmyor nnd bis attor
ney , General Webster , had hold an im
portant consultation , The gossips industri
ously circulated the story through the corridor
of iho state bouse. They bad it thai General
Webster advised the governor to relinquish
the office at once but that the governor posi
tively dcollnod lo uccopllbo proffered advice.
The story gained but lllllo cocdonce but
from the cxcitod manner In which ono nows-
pnper coi respondent made u frantic rush to
the telegraph office It Is surmised that nt
least ono newspaper some whore not far
from Omaha bristled with u sensation to tbo
effect that Governor Thayer hud determined
to hold on lo his office as long UP possible.
The story wns exploded before a o'clock in
Webster OllVreil Xo Ailxlrv.
When questioned in regard to the matter
by THU Bni : representative , Governor
Thayer denied Ibo story most emphatically.
llu said that it wus true tbut ho had met
Gonornl Webster , at the latter wns in
town on business connected wltb the United
States courts , The decision of the supreme
court came up In their conversation only In-
eldently. Governor Thavrr stated that he
did not ask any advice of General Webster ,
thnl none wns proffered , and that , consequently
quently , none wa declined. Ho grow Indlg-
nnnt when told tbut tno story wns likely to
bo stated us a fact lu publio print and re
quested THE BCE lo douy It as a piece of
fiction , pure aud simple.
Another rumor that gained cireniation this
afternoon bad It that Governor Tbnyor bad
decided to write to Governor Boyd tendering
him full possession of the office in advance
of any mandate from iho supreme court , and
that such a letter would bo mulled tonight.
Governor Thayer also dtniled this story.

next Monday for Texas , and ho will bo ac
companied by his wife and private secre
tary. W. Moi ton Smith , ono of Jus execu

on the editorial staff of thu

The records of tno executive ofllco have been
brought down to date , und ut least ono pro

that ho Is perfectly satisfied thai ho bus done

All of those trifles point to Governor Thay.

\Muy Dt'fldo Tomorrow.
A gentlchnin closely connected with Gov
ernor Thayer' administration said this after
coon , while referring to the many rumors li
circulation , that tbo governor was giving thi
matter tbu most serious consideration It
his own mind and that be believed a deter
initiation would bo arrived ut tomorrow. Thi
same gentleman believed that Goveruo
Thaycr would louder possession to Goyorup
3oyd nt onoo. Ho gave his reason for so
hlnklng by saying : "Governor Thoyar has
loan actuated in this matter by no moan nnd
ordld motives. Ho behoved thnt Mr. Boyd
vat not a citizen ot the United Stntos , nnd.
icllovlng that , the constitution made It ob [
Ifrntory upon him to see that the executive
fllco was not occupied by nn nlirn. Now
bat the highest tribunal in the land has de
cided that Mr. Boyd Is now nnd wns at the
tmo of his election a citizen nnd eligible to
ho ofllco , Governor Th y or Is satisfied , If ho
akos advantage ot a lognl tochnlcnltiy now ,
or insists upon tbo observance ot a moro
matter of.form , ho would bo open to the
criticism thnt ho Is holding on to the olllce
or the tnoro sane of the salary nnd the
molumonts , I don't bollovo Governor
Phaycr Is that kind of n man. I still bcllovo
nr.d always will bcllovo that bo has been
actuated by the highest motives all along ,
and I bcliovo mat bis action within iho next
o'.v days will prove this. "

Governor Thayer was soon nt his homo
his otonlnir In reference to the sensational
dispatch printed in tbls afternoon's World-
lornld , copies of which woto scattered
irond cast In Lincoln this evening. After
roiidttig the article Governor Thayer de
nounced It a tissue of falsehoods from bo-
innlng to end and said bo could find no
vords strong enough to denounce the
maliciousness of the article. "The only con
versation bo had with General Webster
oak place In tbo hotel rotunda in the
iroscnceo of a crowd with uo attempt
whatever * t concealment or privacy. " Ho
oltcrrted bis statement made to TUP. BRF.
representative early In the afternoon to the
itToct that he bud asked no advice of General
Webster and that none had boon glvon. His
conversation with General Wobslor lasted
no longer than thirty minutes and took place

Forty-seven lines of double-loaded fake ,
announcing that ox-Governor John M.
Thaycr would hang onto tbo gubernatorial
ofllco at nil hazards until ejected by n man

dished up last evening under a Lincoln dnto
nud a scare hend lo lost the already distended
credullly of the readers of ibe World-Herald.
[ t wns stnted that Hon. John L. Webster ,
General Tbayor's attorney , was closeted
with the ox-governor for several hours yester
day mornlng.durlniwhlebtbo former labored
eng and earnestly to convlnco his client that
the cost thing for him to do under Ihe cir-
cumstnnces was to itop down nnd out nnd
surrender the office as gracefully as possible
lo Governor Bojd , but that the present In
cumbent positively refused to do anything of
the kind , Insisting that ho could bold on for
nt least a month longer. The extreme roti-
couco of both Mr. Webster and General
Thaycr was dwelt upon at length and it was
declared that both gentlemen finally refused
Lo answer even the simplest questions for
four of divulging something that they wished
to keep secret.
Hon. J. L. Webster was found at his homo
last evening , and his attention was directed
Lo the aforesaid article , of which , up lo tbat
lime , ho hnd not heard. After reading It , ho
said that It wns without foundation.
"It Is not only a fabrication , " ho snid , "but
it Is absolutely false from beginning to end.
I was not closeted wilh Governor Thayer ; 1
did not urge him to step down and out ,
nclthoi did he refuse to do so , as the matlor
was not touched upon , and , lastly , I did not
refuse to answer questions , as 1 was not
spoken to by any representative of an Omaha
paper while I was In Lincoln. "
"What did occur ! "
What Rortlly Happened.
"I wont to Lincoln Ibis morning to attend
to business In the United States court. I did
not arrive until 10 o'clock , and wont straight
to tbo court room , so I did pot got to the
Hotel Lincoln until 12 o'clock. I had sent
wora to Governor Thayer tbut ho could see
mo tboro , and he did meet mo In the hotel
ofllco , where all tbo conversation that passed
between us occurred. The subject discussed
by us was what the decision of the supreme
court probably was , and the tulk
all took place in tbo most
publio part of the hotel , whcro
there was no attempt whatever to conduct a
secret conversation. There was nothing said
which anyone could not have hoard ; in fact ,
two others did boar a part of it and one man
nearly all of It. The question of what would
be done or what was bott to do was uot
touched upon at all. It wns understood that
that would bo utlendod to later , probably in
a day or so , as soon as wo received definite
Information regarding tbo decision. Noth
ing was said about surrendering the offioo ,
nor of retaining possession of it. That story
Is false , pure and simple , and based upon no
facts whatever. What , will be done I cannot
say , but I can say this when Ibo time comes
to net there will bo no boy's ' play. It will bo
n manly act , aud not that of hangers-on , as
U intended in that article. "

"It is absolutely nauseating to notice the

a member of such a distinguished republican
'Hmlly should bo a democrat is nn oftonco
which , Mr. Hoar Insists , has Dover been
lUlto forgiven by the loading republicans ,
and Is the cause of the somewhat frequent
lolltlcal assaults made upon him.
Scarcely had the Irritated proceedings of
ostcrdny between the two members from
Massachusetts been road from the Cougros-

of the bouso boforn the controvoriy was
again revived by Mr. Morse , who arose to a

Mr , Vocrheos , rising to a poraonnl qucs-

Washington dispatch to the Philadelphia
; > ross , with the heading , "The Senate
Wasting Tlmo in Obcdlonco to Senatorial
Jourtosy Mr. Voorhoos Falls to Sustain
ills Charges His Schema to Defeat Judge
Wood's Mominatlon not Supported by the
Republican * Ho had Counted upon , "
The dlipntch went on to stnto that the sen
ate Judiciary committed bud wasted another
session out of "senatorial courtesy" to Sena-
or Voorhoos ; that the attempt of Senator
Voorheos to form n coalition with the rcpub-
Icans was u flat failure ; thnt some of the re
publicans llko Quay , Catnorou and Hlcgins
, voro opposed to the nomination of Gcorso M.
Dallas of Pennsylvania , nnd that Mr. Voor-
ices had proposed that , "If those disgruntled
republicans would Induce enough of tbulr
iarty to aid tno democrats In defeating .ludgo
Woods' nomination the dumocratc would ro-
clprocalo and aid In defeating Dallas. "
The dispatch ends with the statement thnt
.tint plan would not worn , nnd that it , was
tow reasonably certain thnl all the nomlnn-
lens \7ould bo confirmed next month with
out a dissenting vote among the republicans.
Ilranded It n l.lo.
Mr. Vorhoos said his principal object In

Woods' confirmation , bo would favor a move

to dofeutJudgo Dallas of Philadelphia. A

and lisked for a discussion on that point. Ho
also stated a determined effort should bo
maao by tbo stockholders to got manufac
tories in Omaha. Ho thought that if every
body would go In heart ami hand for homo
industries , and then patronize them it would
bo a better plan and moro profitable than
offering bonuses to induce manufactories to
In a general discussion City Attorney Con
nell spoke of the provisions in the city
charter of the eminent domain. Ho said
the provisions should bo looked into , and
that many amendments should bo made to
"vVo have a new governor today , " said
Mr. Connell , "and it may ho that ho will call
a special Bosslon of the legislature to remedy
many existing evils. Wo nhould hnvo the
charter so amended to acquire the oloctrlo
light plant , tbo water works anil the gas
works , The franchise for the gas plant ex
pires ono year from this month and than the
olty should own It. "
Major Balcombo wasof ' .hoopinion that the
charter should be so changed as to allow all
amendments thereto to bo made by a majority
vote of the people Instead of by the legisla
ture. If the amendments wora made by the
people bo thought thai the lobbyists at the
state capltol would have no opportunity ot
manipulating thingn as they saw lit.
The park question was also brought up , and
John A. Horbach stated that the voting of
the bonds for park purposes was n very fool
ish ploco of Business. Two years ago tbo
property near Elmwood park was bought for
? 'J50 en acre and now it < vas proposed to pay
fJOO an acre for It. Mr. Horbach thought
the voters were In Ignorance when ttioy
voted on tbo proposition. Ho bolloved tbo
property owners now saw tbo fallacy of the
bonds being Issued.
Mr. Boggs than upolio of organizing an ap
praisement board for the city and of a hotter

chise to nnotbor company. Ho simply
brought the questions lioforo the moi'tlng
