During. tt c,-iy .part of tb session tha
case of Judg Arthur. H. Noyea of th dis
trict eourt of Alaska and Alexander Mo
Kensla and others' was discussed.
Mr. MoCumbar of North DaJtet aald he
had no deslr to prolopg tb discussion, but
tnoat villainous charges had been mad
gainst men, charge which he personally
knew to be unfounded and absolutely fstae.
' He declared that certain ayodlcates had
fleslred te obtain control of the whole
Norn (Alaska) country. He believed that
it- would be prematura tor th senate te
render a verdict for or against Judg Ar
thur H. Noyea and Alexander MeKensI
before the eourt kad had opportunity te
pass upon th merit of tbe eass.
DM ftat Kaew McKeasle.
- H ventured th opinion that th senator
from South Carolina ' (Tillman), who rep
resented . a chivalrous - pop!' would not
have mad th charge againat tb aoouacd
if he had knewn Alxandr tMcKnal and
been familiar with faot. He declared that

Ha paid a high' tribute to both Mr. Mc
Kensle and Judg key and, ta answer te
an inquiry, asserted' that not one scintilla
ef evidencs la contained In th entire reo

He asserted that MeKensI' lawyer od

Referring to tb opinion of the. circuit

Tbe member ot the court of appeal for
th Ninth circuit, h said, might be .hon
orable men, but he1 wai obliged to judgj
tbm by their aota. That court 'had ton-'"
Tinted Judge Noyes while he waa -1,000
milee away and had arraigned him Ja most ;
rsnurkabl laaguage without aa oppor
tunity of. a keartng.
Reverting to th situation aa Judg Noyes
found it in Alaska, Mr. McOumbar declared
that the mining ayndlcatea had made every
Sort to Drib him,' $20,000 being offered to
him in en sum. Finding it Impossible to
bribe him the syndicate hired, Mr. McCum
ber assarted, a man to mak a perjured affi
davit that Judg Noyes had accepted a
bribe. V , '
These facts, be aald, Had been reported to
th attorney general ef -.the United State,
and for reportlag thess matters to th De
partment ot Justioa Mr. Frost, ha aald, had
been sentenced te prison for on year be
cause hi work bad some ia conflict with
the circuit eourt ot appeala. That, he aald.
waa tka real reason' for Frost'a conviction.
He simply would sot be a creature of the

Mr. Tillman insisted,; -however, that the

office eenflrma tha substantial accuracy .ot
the subjoined statement which ths Krsus
Eeltung prints todsy relative ta Germany's
courss toward the Vetted State during
tb war with Spain; '- '
Th correspondent' of" the Associated
rres understand that tb article wa
prepared by Prof. S'chlemann, professor ot
history at Berlin university, who enjoy
peolal official hourcea-1 of Information.
After a prefae quoting ' tbe statement
made by a British Foreign office official to
a representative of ' th Associated Press
January 21 laat, it lays:" '
Almost exactly four year ago the Span
ish ambansador her asked Germany
whether Germany would lead In action
against the t'nlted States for the protec
tion of the monarchy principle. The an
wer waa a definite refusal, and th same
answer was given a month later, or ahout
the middle of March, when the Invitation
reached Germany t participate In . the
Intervention undertaken upon tbe Initiative
of Austria. .... . .
This wa in the weeks following the aad
disaster of the Maine, when It was believed
Intervention would facilitate an under
standing between the United Statea and
Spain. Nevertheless, the government com
missioned Herr von Radotvlta, the German
ambassador to Spain, to inform the Madrid
government that Germany waa not In a
position to prevent the Spanish-American
After that several attempts were made
to win Germany, or the iirelbund, for In
tervention, In which the pope was espe
cially active. The' final result waa that
pr. voh Holeben, German ambassador at
Washington, was Instructed to ' Join In
the step proposed by Austria, only lr case
alt the other five great powera partlolf ated.
We are unable to state the detail of
how the united action came about. At any
rate the collective note. was handed to the
offlotala at Washington April 1 advlsl.g a
peaceable settlement and wis signeo. by
England, France.- Italy,. Austria, Russia
Thontkl War Would Be Averted. ;
It waa believed for a week that . war
would be averted. General Blanco received
orders from Madrid to - Otter tha Cuban
insurgents an armistice, tor Spain was re
solved to give them far-reaching autonomy
and to arrive at a settlement of the Maine
question through arbitration.
Ulplomatlo circles, however, entertained
no Illusions, and when KnRlnnd, April 14,
through Ita ambaeaador, proposed a new
collective note, In "which the powera should
declare that Europe regarded America's
armed Intervention In Cuba es unjust, the
Kther ambassadors telegraphed to their
nine governments asking for Instructions.
The step failed through Germany's posi
essentially different from the KngllHh end.
A rortnlgnt later war was declared.
Afterwards, in June and July, white the
United States waa making great progress
In the Philippines, Bngland tried to Induce
the Spaniards' commission In England to
ask for pesoe- proposals, for to no power
wa tne American enrroaenment in in
Pacific more annoying than to Bngland.
ths above is tne ntaioricai connect-on 01

we have thoroughly exposed the absurdity
of the English fegand.

The Spanish sovernment' believed that
Queen victoria would support any otep

oo great an Independence to the lntrvn
tton ot the queen if) the council of th
fcrltlsh government. It wa not Ignorant
or tne fact that Mr. Chamberlain was in
agreement -with Lord Salisbury In the da
sir to render the United States a signal
service, but information of a very conu
sant l&l character,., which reached It con
veyed to the Madrid government the Idea
that any. mission of pacification would be
well received by England. Knrllah so
ciety entertained the moat hoatile spirit
toward the United States. It had not been
able to forget the Venesuela affair and In
lonoon it was tnougnt tn proper tning
to support the Spaniards. - - .
Thus the principal diplomatic effort of
Spain wa brought to bear on the central
European powers, ana mor particularly
RuK(a. It wa not thought that England
would take the Initiative In its favor, but
being convinced and, as it appears, lustily.
so, mat tingiana wouia noi care 10 -una

Justice ci Omaha The opinion of Judge
Keysor sustains the demurrer to the peti
tion, of William d. Voder for1 aa injunction
preventing Isaao 8. Hascall and othera ot
the city council from appropriating, by or
dinance or otherwise, any money for the
payment of the aalary ot Frank E. Moorea
aa .major foe the- month ot January, 1902.
The action is dlsmfaaed at plaintiff's sost.
In the opinion Judg Keysor says:
"It ia conceded tbat the mayor took th
Oath prescribed by -the legislature aa fouad
In section 1 of chapter x of the Compiled
BUMit, aad; that he did not take the oath
provided for by section 1, article xtv, of the
constitution ot this state; . and it is alao
conceded by. counsel on both aides in thi
case 'that If the mayor be not a constitu
tional -tracer tbat, the Injunction prayed for
must be denied
-'Th constitution of Nebraska, ao far aa
the court haa .been , able . to discover, no
where names mayors ot incorporated dtlea
among tha officers for which It provides;
unless ths mayor be a police magistrate.
Whatever may have been the function of
roayof of title in Olden times, the office
of mayor and 'polld Judge are now too
clearly separated to warrant tha court In
finding tbat the framera ot our constitution
intended td embrace mayora in tha term
police magistrate. The court la therefore of
the : opinion 'that tbe constitution do not
embrace mayors'wlthln th term pollc
maglatrat which it employs, and that tha
constitution doe not, in express terms in
clude mayors of cities In the liat of office
which it names'. . ,
. '.'faction 19 ot artlcl t ot the constitu
tion provides that the governor shall have
poiyer to remove, any officer. whom he may
appoint in case ot incompetency and neg
lect of duty or malfeasance In office. Here
again we find the language of the constitu
tion very broad and -general; but the au
proma aourtMn tha case of State againat
Smith, 3S Nebraska, 14, decided that thla
section applied 'only to officers named- in
the constitution. -The court ia therefore of
th opinion that th words, executive ad
