HISTORY OF CASK JIST CLOSED
Events Which Lend to - Prosecution
and Progress of the Trial.
The case Just closed Is one of the most
notable Und cases yet tried In the t'nlted
' States, and Involves questions not oc
curring In any of the land cases tried else-
' Where In the country. The prominence of
the two principal defendants, Bartlett Rlch-
. ards and Will Comstock, was accentu
ated by the fact that a year ago they en
tered a plea, of guilty o Illegally fencin?
public ' lands and were sentenced .to a fine
of i00 each and to be Imprisoned In the
custoHy of the t'nlted States marshal for
si hours. The two defendants were turned
tver to the custody of their attorney, R.
8t Hall, as a special deputy, by United
'States Marshal T. L. Mathews, and were
)n constructive custody at the Omaha club
for the six hours.
Marshal Matthew.! was shortly thereifter
deprived of his office and the official dis
pleasure went so far as to result In the
official decapitation of t'nlted Btates Ils

sentenced to pay a fine of 11,300 and to be
confined In the Douglas county Jail for six
months. Rev. Q. O. Ware was sentenced
to pay a fine of $1,090 and to be confined
In the Douglas county Jail for one year.
Both of these cases were appealed to
the United States circuit court of appeals.
The Krause brothers have been denied their
appeal, and must shortly undergo their sen
tence. Ware's case was set for hearing
at St. Louis before the court of appeals
for the present month, but owing to Mr.
Rush's engagement in the trial Just closed,
the hearing on the motion will not be heard
until February. Wel&h, who was indicted
with Ware and Lambert, was sentenced to
six months' Imprisonment In the Douglas
county Jail, and finished his sentence last
July. Frank Lambert, who pleaded guilty
to the charge, has not yet been sentenced,

FORAKER ON CASE OF NEGRO TROOPS
Ohio Seaator Says President Aeted
Wlthoat Aathorlty Brief Reply
to Argnmeat by Senator
WASHINGTON, Pec. 20.-After being In
session three-quarters of an hour todrfy,
the house adjourned until January S. 1907.
Empty desks greeted the speaker when the
house convened and the desire to get away
for the holidays Wns superior to the In
clination for business.
Representative Mondell (Wyo.) succeeded
in passing his bill extending the time In
which enttymcn may make final settlement
on the Shoshone Indian reservation.
Then Representative Payne (N. Y.) called
up his resolution relating to the distribu
tion of the president's annual message to
the several committees. In accordance with
a custom that has existed since the founda
tion of the government. The house passed I
the resolution and adjourned for the Christ- !
mas holiday at 12:45 p. m. A hundred I
members wnlted to extend the season's i
greetings to Speaker Cannon.
The house today passed the bill extend
ing the time to May 15, 1907, In which entry,
men may make final residence on the Sho
shone reservation, Wyoming.
While ths bill was under consideration
Mr. Mann of Illinois objected to the prac
tice of congress, or rather the Interior de
partment, he said, opening Indian reserva
tions under the lottery system. It seemed
to him that the men who drew the prizes
should be compelled to live up to the letter
of the law. He seriously doubted whether
the entrymen on these lands contemplated
their retention, but believed that they hoped
rather to make money out of their hold
ings, while the real settlers were placed
at a disadvantage. He served notice that
he would object to the extension of time
on any reservation opening, Insisting that
the framers of a measure would have to
take climatic considerations Into question.
PROCEEDINGS OF THE! SENATE
Mr. ForaUer Makes speech on Dis
charge of Negro Troops.
WASHINGTON, Dec. JO Senator For
aker occupied ths attention of the senate
In Its last session before the holiday re'
cess today In an extended criticism on the
basis of President Roosevelt's action In
discharging the negro troops of the Twenty-fifth
Infantry on account of the
Brownsville raid. He was replied to
briefly by Benator Lodge, while Senator
Bcott sustained the demand of the Ohio
senator for a full Investigation of the mat
ter by the senate military committee. A
resolution directing such an Investiga
tion Is before the senate for action at Its
Immediately after the senate convened
today Senator Foraker's resolution looking
to an Investigation by the senate of the
president's discharge of the three colored
companies of the Twenty-fifth Infantry
was taken up and Senator Foraker ad
dressed the senate In its support. He be
gan with the broad declaration that the
"president misconceived his constitutional
power when he discharged the troops and
he also misconceived the testimony on
which his action was based."
Mr. Ftraker 'said the president's con
stitutional power was simply to command
the army and navy as comtnnnder-ln-chlef,
while to congress the constitution gave
power to raise armies and to make rules
and regulations for Its government.
The regulations prescribed that no man
could be summarily discharged without a
right t6 be tried and the articles of war,
he argued, prescribed minutely how these
trials are to be conducted; that all punish
ment should be In accordance with the
directions of courts-martial. He contended
after reading at length from the articles
of war. It was Inconceivable that the presi
dent should be absolutely without restraint.
The president, he said, stattd In his mes
sage that these soldiers were guilty of
mutiny and had been discharged for that
reason. He followed this with the article
of war providing that a courts-martial
should direct this punishment. This was all
to guard against the exercise of an auto
cratic power. Congress to provide against
excessive punishment had limited the power.
Mr. Foraker cited cases in the work of
General Davis, on military law, where re
fusal to give testimony was an offense,
under the head of disorder, and was pun
ishable by court-martial. Taking up the
Individual records of the soldiers, Mr.
Foraker suld ths first man on the list was
a sergeant, who had served twenty-six
years. Each time his enlistment had ex
pired his record was good and was char
acterised as "excellent." "good soldier,"
"character excellent," etc.
"Why, Mr. President,", declared Mr.
Foraker, with great vehemence, "an atro
cious crime has been committed If
man Is not guilty. He goes forth bra
as a murderer."
The senate adjpurned at 2:46 p. ra. un

E. W. McKenna. vice pre-ldent of the Chi

rated the statements of Mr. Blddle concern
ing the use of cars for storage purpose,
but declared it la a difficult problem, as
many shippers preferred to pay demurrage
charges rathui than unload the cars
The testimony was handled on record

ceived from President Roosevelt to "rush
that evidence In the coal fumlno case In
the northwest." Bo much celerity was In
jected Into the proceedings that the time
for the transcription of the evidence was,
it is claimed, reduced by one-half.
