BT, PETKRHBlTtU. , Oct. r. U. The pe
timlnery Investigation Into the surrender
by Rear Admiral Nebagatoff of hlg
squadron at tho battle nt the sea of Japan
Is said to be decidedly favorable to the
admiral. The latter in the official, report
prepurtd for his approaching trial by court
martial emphasises the helpleesly disabled
oonultlon of hla two principal ships, .the
lack of ammunition and the exhaustion of
the crews at the time of the surrender.
The battleship Orel, Instead of b.ing
almost uninjured, as stated shortly after
the battle, was so dumaged May IT, IM,
that Ita commander asked Admiral Rojeat
vensky for permission to destroy It. It
was on the point of sinking the next morn
ing and only had two heavy guns In action.
The battleship Nicholas I, of the same
squadron, also wag leaking, one of Its
twelve-inch guns was disabled and Its
boats were shot away.
An imperial order was published this
morning commuting tho sentences of the
four officers of the torpedo boat destroyer
Bedovi, who, with Admiral Rojestvensky,
were tried at Cronstadt July 4 on the
charge of surrendering to the enemy and
were found guilty and condemned to death
by shooting. On account of extenuating
circumstances. Emperor Nicholas was re
quested to commute the sentences to dis
missal from the service and deprivation of
certain rights, which he has now done.
Rojt-etvenaky. waa acquitted July 4.

Proceedings In Detail.
The session was opened with prayer, of
fered by Rev. H. 8. Bradley, pastor of Bt.
John's Methodist Episcopal church. South,
of St. Louis. '
Immediately the hearing of reports waa
resumed, the first being the report of the
clearing house conference committee, read
by Secretary Frederick E. Farnsworth of
the Michigan Bankers' association, De
troit. The report set forth that unques
tionably the evil of country checks and
per points Is and has been for some years
one of the most important subjects which
the banks have had to consider. The re
port stated that efforts are being made by
the clearing houses of the country to
eradicate the evil, but that many of the
clearing houses have poor systems . of
rules looking toward the accomplishment
of this result, some of them being without
even an effective organisation, and the
committee believes that the work should
be carried out on broader llnea and more
scope. The committee heartily recom
mended the adoption of the proposed
amendment to the bylaws of the associa
tion by the addition of a section to he
known as the clearing house section, and
that the section be given representation
on the executive council. Such a section
would then be in position to vigorously
push the work In hand. The report of the
bill of lading committee was presented
by Chairman Lewis E. Pierson, president
of the New Tork National Exchange bank.

mated, had lven nr. mnnev for the en-
dors-ment of the league. Mr. Murphy
charged that certain Independence leaaue
managers hod demanded money for the i
withdrawal of their candidates in congres-
slcnal, senatorial and assembly districts t
where a third ticket had hern put in the.)
field. He added, however, that William j
R. Hearst, the Independence league demo-1
era tic candidate for governor, knew nothing i
"It Is a fact," enld Mr. Murphy, "that
many of oji- candidates for congress and
the legislature have been approached by
representatives of the Independence league
and money has been demanded of them. Oil
men refused to give up and It wan only
then that the league put up opposition
candidates. The men who demanded money
were not ordinary Individuals belonging
to the league, but representatives of that
organization. If we had paid what they
asked there would have been no league
ticket In the held against us."
Ihmaen Denlea t'haraes.
Mux V. Ihmsen. who his charge of the
Independence league headquarters, gave out
a formal statement denying Mr. Murphy's
charge. The statement says:
The -. managers of the Independence
league, so-called, are not "holding up" can
didates for cash. If any one, even re
motely connected with the league, has at
tempted such a thing, we shall be glad to
know the facts.
I doubt If any candidate of the league
has, as yet, contributed 1 cent to the
league's campaign fund.
The Independence league, which waa pro
moted by W. R. Hearst, held Its state
convention here September 11 and named a
full ittate ticket with Mr. Hearst heading
It. Subsequently the league named a com
plete Judicial ticket for the First Judicial
district, which comprises New York City
nnd county. At Buffalo September. 'X the
democratic state convention nominated Mr,
Hearst for governor. ", j
Mr. Hearst's campaign has been made
under the Joint management of the. demo
cratic and the Independence league state
committees. - . . ' -'.

The ten ppea ranee of tile Civic Federatlic
as an active factor in fimsha atTnlrs. i i.'t
on the eve of another election a co
incidence to which Omnha people up' !-
coming accustomed, was marked bv a
questioning reference as to the faith of the
movers In the hearing before Governor
Mickey at the Millard hotel Thursday after
noon. Judge W. D. McHugh, who appeared
on behalf of the accused members of the
Omaha Fire and police commission, in
sisted that the mayor la rharged with the
execution of the laws In Omaha, ami no'.
the commissioners. On behalf of the com
missioner Judge McHugh offered a de
murrer to tho charges.
Quoting from section SOS of the Com
piled .Statutes he defined the riutln of the
board a being the "appotnlm nt, re
moval, government and discipline of :lw
fire and police departments." contending
that none of the powers mauled to th.
board contemplates administration of law
nnd that nowhere does the law spccllleall v
state the hoard shall enforce laws of Ne
braska. The Judge said the city rhartcr
vests enforcement of state lsws and city
ordinances In the mayor. Ho offered to
show legislative Intent In this regard by"
referring to the city charter of lfcsT.
which refers to the mayor as "conservator
of tho peace."
Evolution of th. Mayor.
"The mayor emerged from coinpnratlvo
obscurity in 1887 to chief executive of
ficer, as well as conservator of the peace
in 1891, when the mayor became thu man
In charge, with the chief of police umlei
orders of the mayor nnd pollc. commis
sion, the latter a necessity in the scheme
of government," declared Judge Mc
Hugh, who made further reference to
the statutes to show tho chief of police
becomes a direct public officer under th.i
mayor. He said the commissioners had
been branded as malefactors because they
had not usurped the functions of a mayor.
Then the governor Interposed to asK
whether the judge did not think the. board
had a right to regulate the saloons. Inas
much aa It had power to grant or' revoke
licenses, to. which the Judge replied that
In Iho'enforcement of law It col.tuudcit It
made no difference what tho offense was
the board had not tho power to enforce
the law. ,
If Federation Is Sincere.
"If the Civic Federation members.
they say, seek to compel recreant official
to enforce the law, why do not they pro
ceed against the mayor?" asked Judge Mc
Hugh. "In November, 1304. Mr. Thnma
filed charges ln the district court against
the late Frank E. Moores and Chief of
Ifcdlce Donahue, seeking to compel them to
enforce the laws, but that action waa not
prosecuted. If the Civic Federation la
sincere In compelling recreant officials to
enforce the law, lot It proceed against the
mayor. And, again. If the Civic Federation
tn staggering under the weight of' iesKn
slblllty of bringing violators of law t i
Justice, there Is the county attorney, who
Is sworn to proceed against persons against
whom evidence Is brought," continued
Then the Judge referred to the plulntlffs
as "all honorable men" with such repeti
tion as to bring the encomium Into a curi
ous light. He said these "honorable men"
repudiated their own position when they
filed the charges against the mayor anil
chief of police ln 1804. declaring then the
mayor was responsible for enforcement of
Members Are llonnded
He said further: "Members of thli
board have been continually and consist,
ently hounded, although their duties have
been clearly defined by the city legal de
partment, their own legal counsel and th
Douglas county district court by Judge E
telle. These men whe have gone about
saying, 'Thou shalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor.' have said these com
missioners have been servile tools for the
liquor Interests, when the facta have been
the commissioners have resisted efforts to
locate saloons along boulevards and the
better streets, and they have quietly, with
out usurping wrong functions, eliminated
many features in connection with opera
tions of the saloons. And, notwithstanding
the law is plain that the mayor shall en
force the laws, these men have culminated
their houndlngs by bringing their oharges
before the governor."
The second charge was that the commis
sion s have encouraged brewers and a.
loon men to break the law, reference belng
speclally made to the 170 protests made by
the Civic Federation a year ago.
Taking up the second charge, the Judge
contended the board had the right to grnnt
licenses, but not to regulate saloons, and
In the matter of overruling the 170 pro
tests the board acted on Its best judgment.
Then the governor asked If the Hlocumh
law provided who Is not entitled tu a
license and whether or not a saloon man
known to have violated the law should be
denied a license. The Judge agreed that u
saloon man violating the law would not be
entitled to a license, but that re verted bid-
to the question of the hoard enforcing the
law und tl)e necessity of securing convic
tions before refusing or revoking licenser.
Judge McHugh said the present Boerd
of Fire and Police Commissioners was d -
! signed as a nonpartisan bourd, jet has brcn
made the storm center of party politics.
Death Knell of Hem. Hnle.
