might be criticised for maladminl-
tratlon or corruption while In that of

.In reply to question, one talesman,
native of Germany, said that the fact
that Colonel Roosevelt, "although hav
ing always been friendly to Germany,
bad criticised the violation of the- neu
trality of Belgium," would not
prejudice him against the defendant.
lOach talesman was questioned closely as
to whether he had any grudge against
Colonel Roosevelt because of his actions
during the presidential campaign of 1912.
The court upheld an objection by Mr.
Barnes' counsel to a question as to
whether one of the talesmen believed
that a citizen had a right to criticise a
person in public office, if his rhctive for
so doing was to further the cause of
Mr. Barnes and Colonel Roosevelt sat

Republicans Choose'' Aurora Man for
Vice Presidency, Which Means
Presidency in 1916.
REGISTRATION IS NOW 193
Clark Perkins of the Aurora Re
publican Is slated for the presidency
of the Nebraska Press association a
year from now. This was decided
yesterday when a republican caucus
of the Press association, now in ses
sion at the Rome hotel, agreed on
Perkins for vice president for the
now ensuing year. The standing
custom of the association is that the
vice president each year becomes
president for the ensuing year. Thus
the fight Is shifted back a year and
made on the selection of a vice presi
dent rather than a president.
Likewise the old custom is to
choose this vice president each year
strictly on party lines. It is an un
derstood principle that the demo
crats choose a vice president one
year and the republicans select one
the fillowing year. This Is the year
fir the republicans to choise, si a
scire if them held a brief clnference
at the close of yesterday's sesslin and
agreed upon Perkins.

WASHINGTON, April 19. Lea
M. Frank, the Brooklyn man under
death sentence for the murder of
Mary Phagan, an Atalanta factory

for life in the supreme court of thi
United Slates today.
In a decision to which Justices
Holmes and Hughes dissented, th
court dismissed Frank's appeal from
the federal court of Georgia, which
refused to release him on a writ of
habeas corpus. Frank contended that
"alleged mob violence" at his trial
and the fact that he was absent from
the court room when the Jury re
turned its verdict had removed him
from the jurisdiction of the courts of

The decision of the United States supreme court apparently ends
the legal proceedings to sec. ire a new trial for Leo M. Frank, under
sentence of death in Atlanta, where conviction was admittedly
forced by race prejudice and threats of mob violence.
Nothing remains for those people convinced this man did not have
a fair trial but to join in a nation-wide popular appeal to the governor
of Georgia to accord Frank his executive clemency. A proper form
for such a letter would be:

CITES CARTAGENA AGREEMENT
MADRID, April 1 (Via Paris)
"Silence at present Is a crime, for If
we wait until the moment of victory
to show our sympathy for the victor
It Is probable we shall be too late,'
mas the assertion made by Count
Alvrae DeRomanones, former premier
of Spain yesterday. He pointed out
that Spain's foreign policy since the
Cartagena agreement In 1907 has
been more and more favorable to the
triple entente. . '.
"The present, hour are grave and
Important, . said .ve forme r, premier,
that It is necessary for Spain to
make a solemn declaration. Without
violating our neutrality, we must
Say who among the belligerents wo
consider our friends." . , .
Count Romanes' address wag en
thusiastically cheered by hla hearers.
Th. Cartagena agreement was a triple
understanding reached between Great
Britain, Franc, and Hpaln, following a
visit ot th. lata King Kdward to Carta
gena In , 107. . Th. agreements between
flpaln and Great Britain and Hpaln and
Franc, were distinct, although following
the aame lines.
Great Britain's chief Interest In th.
agreement was th. removal of any cause
for uneasiness in regard to th. possibility
of a land attack on Gibraltar, Spain for
the first time recognising Great Britain's
right to hold th. peninsula, "pain, on
the other hand,-benefited by having a
strong power guarantee Its position In
th. Canary Islands and th. Mediter
ranean, Including th. Balearic islands.
No attempt was made by Germany to
conceal Its Irritation at th. conclusion of
th. agreement, for It was felt that Its
chief aim probably was th. further lsola
tlon of that country.
