P0LCAJ SUPPOSED DlNKISON WAS MEANT
Attorney Coanell Ha Hard Time
Getting Important Admission
front Editor of New a to
Object' of .Attack.
Constant fighting over law point char
acterized the; DennUon-Ncwa libel case
yesterday afternoon before Judge Kstelle.
Objections from both side were frequent
and a large number of them were argued
at length. Consequently th progress of
the case was slow and little of Importance
was brought out. An example of legal
quibbling over fine points occurred when
Joseph Polcar, managing editor of the
News, was on the witness stand. Attorney
Connell for Dennison sought to secure an
admission from him that he knew Elmer
Thomas, In bis Auditorium speech, bad
reference to Tom Dennison, though Do
name waa mentioned.
"Did you not know that article related to
Tom Dennison?" Mr. Connell asked.
This I vital point for the .plaintiff to
prove and the question was objected to,
but after an extended argument the ob
jection waa overruled.
"I did Dot know It," the witness an
"la it not true at that time you believed
It related to Dennison T" Mr. Connell asked.
This question brought out more objections
and after a long argument the witness
was required to answsr.
"I suppose that Mr. Thomas referred to
Mr. Dennlaon," he sold.
Thl answer was stricken from the rec
ords aa not responsive on motion of Mr.
Van Dusen. The question waa repeated
and the Witness tried to qualify bis an
swer, but was stopped. Aftsr considerable

"Did you not consider and suppose it re

After some more arguing between the at
torneys the. witness answered;
"Yes, I did." (
Mel Unl went on the stand and denied

Women Attend Trial. ' '" '
In spite of the tact the Fridav morning
session of the . Dennlson-Newe libel ult
was devoid of . Interesting features, the
court room waa well crowded, In the audi
ence being about a dozen women, the first
that have attended In any large numbers
alnce the beginning of the hearing. The
reading of - depositions was continued, but
wa broken by objections, resulting In copi
ous portion of them being stricken out.
For this reason the progress of the case
The completion of the reading of the
deposition of Oeorge Burrier, the convict
In the penitentiary at Anamosa, la., who
confessed to a number of burglaries, some
of which were in Omaha, occupied the
first hour. At the close Attorney Connell,
for Pennlson, offered In evidence a latter
which Burrier admitted he received from
Elmer E. Thomas relating to his testimony.
Mr. Van Dusen objected and the plaintiff
withdrew the letter, with the understanding
they would offer It later In the trial.
Deposition from Fay.
The second deposition waa that of Lewis
E. Fay of Clinton, la., publisher of the
Clinton Daily Advertiser Fay was inter
ested In the prosecution of the criminal
suit against Dennison in Harrison county.
In his deposition he testified he came to
Omaha to recover diamonds which had
been stolen from his brother at Clinton
and met Dennison in Bonnenbersr'a n.wn
shop and had a conversation with him.
The court ruled out all of his testlmonv
regarding the Fay diamond case and the
conversation he had with Dennison. Fay's
testimony regarding the reputation of Den
nison wa also rulsd out by the court.
in his cross-examination he stated he waa
a friend of Burrier and 8herclirf and had
worked to get them out of the peniten
tiary, because he believed they had re
formed. He admitted he had snld to Chief
uonanue that unless the chief did certain
things he would make a statement to the
newspapers, and had afterward called on
the Dally News. He said the chlof advised
request from the chief did not appeur.

cert of action with such a purpose was es
tablished by the conferences and communi
cations between the national authorities
and the authorities of California and Ban
Kranclaco which followed the passage of
the Hoard Of Education resolution.
There was one great and serious question
underlying the whole subject which made
all questions of construction and of scope
and of eftect of the treaty itself all ques
tions as to whether the claims of Japan
weie well founded or not, all questions
as to whether the resolution of the school
board was valid or not seem temporary
and comparatively unimportant. It was
nut a question of war with Japan. All the
foolish talk about war waa purely aena
tlonul and Imaginative. There waa never
even friction between the two governments.
The question was, whet s'ate of feeling
would be created between the great body
of the people of the United Btatea and the
g.eul body of the reople of Japan as a
esult of the treatment given to the Japa
nese in this country?

It is nard fur democracy to learn the re

now, not governments, make friendship or

pie who permit themselves to treat tne

and insult are surely sowing the wind to
reap the whirlwind, ror a world 01 sullen
and revengeful hatred can never be a world
of peace. Against such a feeling treaties
are waste paper and diplomacy the empty
routine of Idle form. The great queetion
which overaliadows all dtecuaion of the

belligerent were each unwilling that th
others should be abls to trade In contra
band. General Davis pointed out the difficulty
that confronted England and America In
restricting contraband trade because of the
practice of allowing the greatest freedom
of business occupation to the citlsens, while
the continental European powers, with their
mora highly concentrated and centralised
systems, could easily Impose restriction
upon the commercial actlvltyof their sub
ject. To abolish contraband of war would
be to deprive th belligerent of the right
to protect himself from Injury by reason of
th warlike material which the enemy ha
succeeded In obtaining from neutral
Doty of Neatrals.
Sooner or later, he said, tha belligerent
would, with great reason, demand that the
neutral state shbuld charge, themselves
with ihe burden of preventing 'export trade
in contraband to a belligerent destination
In time of war. He aaid the abolltfon Of the
distinction of contraband of war would not
bring to neutral trade the relief from war
hoped for, so long as th right of blockade
continued to exist along with the right of
maritime search and capture. It would,
however, restrict the maritime area In
which searches and captures are habitually
made, but without any diminution of the
rigor with which they wer now exercised.
General Davis referred to the difference
between England and the continental pow
ers In the matter of possibilities of a block,
ade, pointing out that owing to it Insular
situation, while the other European powers
had land boundaries with other states,
England was the one state which might be
really effectively blockaded.
In conclusion he said:
Th beneficent operation of the declara
tion of Paris has done much to mitigate the
rigor of the rights of maritime search and
capture; and the practice of belligerents in
refraining from exercising their conceded
rights In localities distant from the theater
of the belligerent's activity has done still
more to bring Into being such immunity
from capture and annoyance aa is now en
joyed by neutral commerce In time of war.
And It is In this direction, that Is. In ex
tending th area of neutral Immunity and
In restricting the activity 0 belligerents to
the theater of actual naval hostilities,
that we must seek for the Immunity of
neutral commerce from the belligerent in
terference in time of public war.

Kentucky Court of Appeals I'pholds
Law Assessing- Compounded
FRANKFORT, Ky., April 19.-The Ken
tucky court of appeals today sustained th
constitutionality of the legislative act of
the special assembly session of 1906 plac
ing a tax of 14 cents per wine gallon on
rectified, blended, compounded and adul
terated spirits produced In th state. The
court decided adversely every contention
of the olended liquor Interest which side
was presented to the court by Senator
Thomas H. Paynter and William M. Hough
of St. Louis. Th opinion holds mat tne
tax la one of license, rather than a property
tax. and Is upon the completed product
and not upon the constituent parts. It
ws urged for the rectifier that th tax
under the provisions of th law wa only
upon spirits produced from single stamp
spirits. The court ay that It mean rec
