Ilnahea (Hurt, Day's Testimony.
The flrat witness for the state at tha
morning session wai William Hughes, who
was brought back from Sheridan county to
testify, He nfade one of the strongest wit
nesses for the state and corroborated In
ail the main details the testimony of Frank
Thompson, the other eye witness who tes
tified for the state.
Hughes' absence from the county waa
not referred to except Incidentally. He
said he was on a ranch about fifteen miles
"At th time Carlson waa killed," he said
on th stand, "I was about fifty feet away
from htm In my buggy. I saw Carlson stup
down from the sidewalk and start to cross
th street. He had (one about twenty
tet when Noonan took a few quick steps
toward him and atruck him twice, onoe on
ths back of his neck between the shoulders
and the second time on the left side of the
ace. He seemed to have something Small
hi his hand; I could not see Just what It
was. Noonan then went back to the sa
luon. Carlson turned around and walked
hack to the sidewalk with his hand up to
the left side of his face."
"Did Carlson make any efTort to strike
Noonan?" he was asked.
"He did not."
He said Carlson had his back turned to
ward Noonan until after the . second blow
hud been struck, when he turned around.
Hughes was th last witness for the slate.
Noonan Contradicts Them.
The defendant, Frank Noonan, went on
the stand and his testimony differed radi
cally in all the material points from that
of the two eye witnesses presented by the
state. He said Carlson had a skinning
knife In his hand and made a move as If
to cufblm. He grabbed Carlson's arm and
forced It back over his head. The first
iltne Carlson cut himself on the back of
the neck and the second time on the side
of the head, lie then went Into the sa
loon and called up the police and asked
them to hold the warrant for his arrest for
a little while until he could find bonds
men. He denied he had any Intention of
hurting Carlson and said he did not have
a knife. He also denied having any 111
feeling toward Carlson.
Several South Omaha people testified to
Nuotiau's good reputation. Hugh Kennedy
and Ueorge Hoffman testified to hearing
lurlson say Noonan had been circulating
1 1 ports he waa a "scab" and that he would
get even with him for It.
William Hughes has been subpopaned to

CATHOLIC RULES ON MUSIC
Gjstem Drawn by Fpeciil Committfle at
Oommand of Fope Effectife Tuesday.
NOT CONFINED TO GREGORIAN CHANT
(anto I'rrmo Mill Be Most Common,
llnveer, hnt Leaders Anticipate
No ftadicRl ( nangee la
Next Tuesday new rules will go Into effect
regulating music In the Catholic, churches
of the city and the diocese, the tendency
of which will be to place the Gregorian
chant In preponderance over other music.
The rules were published by Uifhop Scan
nell in a letter to the clergy of the diocese
dated February 13, and they were drawn
by a specially appointed committee of
clergymen, in accordance with the com
mands of the pope.
"The Guide to Catholic Church Music."
which is adopted as the ofllelal catalogue,
does not confine itself to the Gregorian
chant, although this form of music is much
more common than any other. In addition
the use is allowed of church music pub-ll;-he
In the official organs of the approved
societies for the cultivation of church mu
sic. Members of the clprgy say the adop
tion of the rules will have little effect on
the music of the churches of the city, for
the choirs have been preparing themselves
in anticipation, and the use of the Gregor
ian ihnnt, which waa never absent, has
lately become more common. They say the
rules will cause no trouble In any of the
choirs of the city.
Two .radical changes' are made In the
rules, however, which have attracted con
siderable attention. One Is the prohibition
of vocal or Instrumental solos, organ ex
cepted, the ostensible reason for the exis
tence of the regulation being to make tho
musical jiart of the worship less operatio
and more In keeping with the solemnity of
the sacrtd occasion of worship.
Another rule provides that at funerals
and marriages no vocal or instrumental mu
sic shall.be allowed, except that which Is
officially approved. As the only officially
approved vocal music for Such occasions Is
In the Latin tongue. It follows that here
after at Catholic weddings and funerals
only the tongue of the ancient Roman
forum will be used In the singing.
Test of the Rales.
The other regulations, say the clergy,
make practically no changes In the system
already In use. The rules follow:
1. The "Guide to Catholic Church Music."
with its supplements, published by
Prof. Otto A. KitiKenberger of St. Francis.
Wis.. Is adopted as the official catalogue
of church music, vocal and Instrumental,
organ and orchestra, nnd every church
choir Is to be provided with this catalogue
at tne expense or the congregation.
2. Church music published In the of
ficial organs of approved societies for the
cultivation of genuine church music Is al
lowed. Such organs are: The Cecilia
(Knglish and German), and the Review
(English) of St. Francis. Wis.: the Flie-
gende Ftlaetter (German) and the Mustca
Pacra (German) of KatistKin: the Cecilia

gifts and millions offered to the pope. The
only reason why the Osservatore Romano
refers to this latest story Is to point the
malicious nature of these utterances which
are as false as they are fantastic.
American Jesuit Honored.
The holy father acted on the suggestion
of Monsignor Maftl, archbishop of Pisa, and
president of the commission for the Vatl
can observatory In calling the Rev. Father
Hagen, S. J., to the directorship of that
observatory. It amjears that the moat
prominent scientific authorities of Italy
and. Indeed, of other countries are unan
imous in recognising the splendid abilities
in that line of the learned Jesuit. Father
Hagen was director of the Observatory of
Georgetown college at Washington for sev
eral years. This is one of the principal
observatories at present directed by the
Jesuits. He devoted himself specially to
the photographing of the stars and the
calculation of their distances one from the
other. Hia unwearied diligence in his work
Is made evident In Uie publications he has
Issued, especially In the atlas of the varia
ble stars, whlcji is accepted as a valuable
contribution to astronomical science. Of
his work, "Synopsis of Higher Ma.th
niatics," Prof. Gilbert of Louvaln uni
versity wrote that it Is new in conception
and collosal in development. The appoint
ment of Father Hagen to the Vatican ob
servatory recalls the great scientific t
tainments of the Jesuits, amongst whom
Father Eerchl was conspicuous, and the
appreciation of these by Pope Plus X.
The Romans dearly love a show and they
have lieen following the Olympic games
with almost feverish Interest, though th
entries from Italy were not as numerous
as might have been argued from the close
proximity of the two natious. But that
they do love jl show is demonstrated by th
fact that recently Buffalo Bill's "Wild
West," with Indians and Mexicans and
other strange peoples, afforded amusement
to the people of the city. The king and
queen and their three children had spe
cial performances given for them, s.nd the
king sent Buffalo Bill a magnificent, mas
sive gold rl;a r holder In gift. The Romans
crowded the circus erected for the sport.
One of the In rocs of Christian patriotism

great sanctuary of St. Anthony at Padua,
la the chapel of Stanislaus in that grand
church a bronie bust of this Sobieskl, the
victor over the Turkish army at Vienna,
has been erected a few day ago In honor
of th hero who fought and prayed so
well for his faith and fatherland.
The condition of Cardinal Callegurl,
bishop of Padua, is a cause of great sor
row to the people of that diocese. The
state of bis health has been saddening and

PROGRAM IS FORMIDABLE
llanaarlan Cabinet of Transition will
Hare (irate l)tfnnltr In
V1F.XNA. April L'S-(Special Cablegram
to The Bee.) The program for the new
"cabinet of transition" sounds somewhat
formidable, but If It command the sup
port of the crown Bnd the real support of
the various political leaders the difficulty
ought not to be so great. The feature In
the compact which excites most attention
now is Its whole-hearted endorsement of
the principle of universal suffrage. This
great constitutional change, which In the
Irony of things was first put forward last
autumn by a cabinet that had no real
parliamentary basis, Is now accepted as
the common policy of a,ll the more ad
vanced Hungarian policies. There are, of
course, logically unanswerable reasons for
such a change. There are n.OOO.nnft people
In Hungary, but the number of voters Is
less than l.OOO.OTO. The percentage Is thus
noticeably low, and In practice the sys
tem has worked to a virtual monopoly of
political power by the Magyars. The
Magyars, numbering barely half the total
population, have been represented In the
chamber by 400 deputies, while the other
8,500,000 of non-Magyar race have been rep
resented by only ten. How far universal
suffrage will lead to a displacement of
political power It Is difficult to say. An
educational test may tend to reserve the
electoral privilege for the Magyars In a
greater degree than for other nationali
ties, owing to their present higher stan
dard In this respect. But a displacement
of some kind there must obviously be, and
the extent to which the Magyars can suc
ceed In attracting to themselves the other
newly enfranchised nationalities will cer
tainly prove a substantial test of their
political genius. It is undoubtedly a great
experiment, but the friends of Austria
Hungary will agree thnt most experiments
would be justified by the hope 'of putting
an end to the crisis that has for so lone
pafalyied the political half of the dual
monarchy. New Interests and new ques
tions, social as well as political, must be
brought Into the foreground by the change.
In the presence of them this protracted
dispute over the constitutional prerogative
of the king In military matters will, It Is
believed, assume rather more Just propor
The history of this dispute has been
unusually Interesting. There Is no provis
ion In the Hungarian constitution for the
maintenance In office by the mere flat of
the sovereign of a ministry In defiance of
the will of an overwhelming majority of
the Diet, any more than there Is for the
levying of taxes and the raising of the
annual contingent of military recruits with
out parliamentary sanctlm On the other
hand. It has been plausibly argued that
the choice of ministers has been a distinct
prerogative of the crown; that Parliament
has no right to Impose on the sovereign
advisers to whom he personally objects
or to whose policy he cannot assent, and
that on the principle that "the king's gov
ernment most be carried on" the only
choice was between an absolute deadlock
and the exercise by the ministry of their
functions under the royal mandate.
It Is alleged that under the old franchise
and In the present temper of the Magyars
the certain result of a new election would
be to Increase the opposition majority, and
thus to leave the situation as hopeless as
ever. If not to aggravate it. Hitherto
the attempts of the emperor-kins- to retain
the military authority undoubtedly con
ceded to him by the compact of 1W7 have
obtained a good deal of sympathy and
support even among the Magyars them
selves. Hence It will be seen that open
war was only averted, ns It were, by the
most careful kind of compromising and one
might almost say by chance.
