Washington. D. C„ Feb. 3.—Porto
Klcans are making a great outcry
against the practical abolition of all
political liberty in the island as pro-
posed In the Olmstead bill, a measure
which plans to give the Islanders even
less selfgovernment than they pos-
sessed under Spain.
By the Olmstead bill President Taft
is given the power to appoint the gov-
ernor, to appoint eight out of thirteen
members of the Senate and linally, to
guarantee a monopoly of all business
enterprises fulling Into I ho right
hands, the measure provides that all
railroad, street railway, telegraph and
telephone franchises must be approved
by the President of the United Stales
before they can become operative.
Also, all of the municipal Judges shall
be appointed by the governor—the
President's appointee—and by these
means a complete Taft-Emplre estab
llshcd In Porto Rico.
Louis Nunox Rivera, resident com
missioner of Porto Rico, at Washing
ton, has this to suy of the black out-
look for hta countrymen:
"The Foraker Act, which is now the
law of the Island, provides that the
ownership of land by corpora-Ions
shall be limited to 500 acres. But now
cornea the Senate Committee on Pa
cific Islands and Porlo Rico with an
amendment—recommended by the
President—which practically reads us
"That the number of acres of land
to be owned by corporations be not
limited, but that ItiBtead of this, the
limitation bo made only upon the
number that they may cultivate; the
corporations being allowed, If they so
wish It, to cultivate ti,000, 7,000 or
10,000 acres, provided they pay a suc-
cessively increasing excess of taxes
upon the number of acres they held
over the 5,000 authorized.
"This provision," continued Commls
sinner Hivera, "practically allows the
corporations to divide the island
among theinselvcB at their own picas
ure. Thus it may be safely stated

The proclamation of Governor Wil-
son granting the pardon is headed:
"On the application of William S.
Taylor for pardon of the indictment
pending in the Franklin circuit court
at the April term, 1900, accusing said
William S. Taylor of the crime of be-
ing accessory before the fact to the
"wilful murder of William Goebel."

That is not the damning part of it.
The defense was not permitted to offer
the Taylor indictment in rebuttal evi-
dence, nor were Warren's lawyers able
to submit to the jury the absolute doc-
umentary proof in their possession to
the effect that Taylor had either made
a mistake or had committed deliberate
perjury. Either the idiotic technicali-
ties of law, the rules of evidence or
some other eqally unfair reason or
motive prevented Warren from refut-
ing a charge which surely convicted
him in the minds of that jury.
Of course Warren was convicted. It
was a legal triumph of which the great
est republic on earth might well be
proud. After the jury had returned
its verdict the court permitted War-
ren's lawyers to make the Taylor in
dictment a "part of the record." It
was contrived to do this In such a
manner that it violated some legal
technicality, thus giving a higher
court an excuse to ignore it. You re-
call what Pickwick said about the law.

"the law was an ass!" He was a very
