There was an impression in Iowa and else
where, drawn from the press reports at
the time, that tbe decision was probably
on some technical ground, but the full de
cision as reported now goea the full length
of holding that tbe state legislature has
no power to make any law affecting na

power to crcat a system of national banks,
is the Judge as to the extent of the powers
whlLh should be conferred on such banks
and has the sole power to regulate and
control the exercise of their operations.
Congress has also dealt directly with the
Question of insolvency of tbe banks and
has made full and adequate provision for
the protection of the creditors of such
banks, and "it is not competent for ths
state legialatures to interfere, whether with
hostile or friendly intention, with national

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Feb. la. (Special. ) The
episode of tbe placing of the statue of
Perl Marquette in Statuary ball at the
capitol is recalled by the proposition now
pending ih the Virginia legislature to place
a statue of Robert E. Lee in that noble
room. The state of Wisconsin honored the
gentle explorer-priest by placing the Mar
quette statue in the hall. This aroused the
hostility of the fanatics and many of them
talked of tumbling the statue down the
capitol steps. Others actually did suc
ceed In defacing the base decorations, but
there waa nothing whatever done in con
gress on tbe subject. The Btate of Wis
consin had acted entirely within its rights.
ana naa sonorea me memory ot one of
the most remarkable characters in the
history of tbe old northwest. Further than
this the attacks on tbe statue were not
approved by the people.
While the Btate of Virginia is deciding
on the Lee statue a similar assault is
being made. This time it starts aith the
Women's Relief corps of this city, which
in bitterly denunciatory reBoluticns de
mands that no "traitor's statue" be erected
in the capitol. The Department of the
Potomac, Grand Army of tbe Republic, wae
asked to adopt the same resolutions, and
did pass some on the subject, but greatly
toned down. It is claimed that there ib
to be a general crusade against tbe placing
of General Lee's statue in the hall, but it
1b doubtful if it can be prevented without
direct legislation, which it is commonly be
lieved would be unwise as it would reopen
the sectional feeling which divided tbe
north and south from '65 to '9&. Virginia,
its representative claims, has the legal
right to erect tbe statue, and there are
many sentimental reasons tor that course
on tbe part of tbe Old Dominion, aside
from the chlvalrlc leader's captaincy of
the confederacy. A statue of Washington
is already in statuary hall.. Lee married
the daughter of George Washington arke
Curtis, grandson of Mrc. Washington, and
the adopted son -of the great captain of
the revolution. He was himself ot the
great revolutionary family ot Lees, and
son of General Llghthorse Harry Lee, fol
lower, friend and eulogist of Washington.
It was Harry Lee who framed that famous
sentence descriptive of tbe country's
father: "FirBt in war. first in peace and
first ia the hearts of bis countrymen."
Star Bis Old Frlead.
Tbe Virginia legislature proceeded this
week to tbe passage of tbe bllL Several
speeches of particular eloquence were
made on tbe occasion of the debate In ths
Old Dominion senate. Senator Wlckham
aaid: "Lyt us prepare to place the statue
of General Lee in tbe capitol as is our
right and Is now our duty. Close by it will
stand New Jersey's tribute to General
Philip Kearney, one of ths most noble fig
ures in tbe hall. The ties of a personal
friendship in life and in death associate
the memories of the two. When Kearney
fell upon the soil of Virginia In tbe second
conflict at Manassas within the lines of
Lee, General Lee returned the body of his
heroic adversary to tbe widow of his friend,
sent ber tbe borse which bore ber husband
unto bis death, and his sword, which was
a glorious one. as a heritage for bis des
cendants. Will Kearney's statue or Kear
ney's spirit blush? Let us not only prepare
to place tbe statue la the capitol, but let
us place It tbere."
Senator Harmon, the republican leader In
the senate, aaid: "If tbe words and works
of such great men as Grant. Garfield, Grtdy
and MtKlnley and scores of other repre
sentative men. both in tbe north and ia tbd
south, are to be taken as indicating the
true sentiments of cur common country, I
for one do not see why this bill should be
defeated or postponed because some war
veterans are etill engaged, in imagination,
in fighting the battles of 61-'5. It seems
to me that forty years of wandering in Lhe
wilderness of passion and prejudices en
gendered by the war ia enough. If a few
over-seaious partisans ia both sections ot
tbe country are determined to stay on one
side of Jordan and keep ns on one side vt
tbe Potomac, I insist that great host of
patriots shall ao longer be retarded tn their
onward march to the land of proniiat, where
those who wore tbe gray, and their sons,
shall s:t down together in their Father's
bouse and forget that sad period of es
trangement whli.li separated ns In their

INDIANAPOLIS. Ind., Feb. f.. After be
ing out forty-eight hours the Jury in tbe
case of Dr. J. A. Alexander tailed to find
a verdirt and was discharged this morning.
On tbe final ballots tbe vote stood eight
for acquittal and four for conviction. On
the first ballot taken on Saturday morning
the vote was eeven tor acquittal and five
for conviction. On the next ballot the vote
stood eight to ft our, and thus remained until
the Jury was discharged, with tbe exception
of one or two votes.
Tbere were several serious altercations
in the- jury room. The disagreement vat
between James K. White and Robert F.
Lingenfelter, whose minds had been pois
oned by their wives.
Mrs. White and Mrs. Linenfelter bad
talked over the trial before tbey saw their
bus bands oa Sunday last, and a hen thry
went to visit tbe Jurors Mrs. Lingenfelter,
it is claimed, told her husband that Mrs.
White bad told her Mr. White would be
foreman of the Jury, and that he had been
a warm personal friend of Prosecutor Rurk-
After the jury resumed deliberation of
tbe case Mr. Lingenfelter accused Mr.
White of having come Into it with his mind
prejudiced against the defendant and told
of the conversation with his wife. Hot
words ensued and the matter almost re
sulted in blows before the Interference of
others stopped it. This bad a disquieting
effect on Mr. White and later in the day,
when bs engaged in a heated argument
with Messrs. Brown and Theislng, w ho were
In favor of acquitting Dr. Alexander, he
waa attacked with heart failure.
The perplexing question In tbe minds of
the Jurors, they say. was whether Dr. Al
exander bad guilty knowledge of the tact
that tbe body of Rose NeiCUnger bad been
unlas-fully liken from the grave.
