TO AN END.
Attorney General Knox Submits
an Elaborate Report.
fi l ( ilh'c ilty being passed, considera-
tion will now he given to this re-
port. It would not be feasible to noti-
fy Jude taft by mail of his appoint-
ment us (he lirst civil governor of the
I hilippines in time for him to assume
office .Inly 1, so this must be done by
Washington, June 4.—About the
first of next month full civil govern-
ment will be set up in (he Philippine
islands, exactly as projected by the
Philippine commission. |As oon after
that date as an administrative machin- j
cry can be made ready for it. the new
Philippine tarilT will be proclaimed, al-
so following out the original plan
formed before the announcement of
the decision* of the supreme court last
week. It was alio decided that there
was no reason for an extra session of
congress. These determinations fol-
lowed a careful study of the jurisdic-
tions of the courts of Attorney General
Knox and Secretary Root, the reiults
of which were made known today. \f-
ter two hours discussion the cabinet
was unanimous in the opinion that the
recent supreme court decisions called
for ho change in the government pro-
Secretary Root has had little doubt
at any time since the court's action of
the feasibility of continuing the execu-
tion of the Philippine program without
violating any of the principles enunci-
ated by the court, and his study of the
court's opinions was mainly to make
sure that he had not overlooked any-
thing in the decisions that might qual-
ify that belief on bis part. He has not
found in any of the decisions delivered
by the justices anything to shake his
original idc and has so advised the
Attorney General Knox after an in-
dependent consideration of the decis-
ions was of tin- same mind, so the orig-
inal program w ill be carried out. The
attorney general submitted to the cab-
inet a very elaborate review of the su-
preme court decisions with his conclu-
Ks to the legal status of the islands,
the officials have nothing to say, but
while reserving full liberty to meet any
l«f(al attacks as may be thought best,
the general statement is made tliat the
exercise of authority in the Philippines
is to be by virtue of the supreme (low-
er reposed in the president : it may be
either as commander in chief of the
United States military establishment,
or by reason of the special designation
of the Spooner law :iperhapi either, it
is said, would be sufficient.
The civil government to be set up is
to be established under the military
government and will be a civil govern-
ment overcised through the military
powers of the president. The collector
at Han Francisco will continue collect-
ing Dingley duties on imports from the
Philippines—is regarded as warranting
the Iwlief that the court did not find in
this ease a parallel to the Delimacase.
The report of the Philippine commis-
sion setting out in detail the complete
scheme of civil government devised by
them is now in Washington, and the
foraker act constitutional.
Washington', June 4.—The supreme
court decisions as viewed by the ad-
ministration settles, tir t, that the
Foraker aet is constitutional, second,
that the collection of duties on Porto
Rican products between the time of
I he cession of the islands of Porto Rico
nnd the passage of the Foraker act,
was illegal and must be refunded.
rhese are held to be the main essen-
tial points of the decisions. Nothing
in them is construed to apply to the
tarilT situation as between the United
States hnd the Philippines. The con-
clusions of the cabinet are not based
on any knowledge as tojthe prospective
Philippine decision of the supreme
court thought it is declared that |there
is little apprehension as to the findings
of the decision. If the present system
is upset in that decision, which is not
anticipated there will be little difticu'-
ty< it is believed, in refunding the
amounts meantime collected under

The attending physicians of Mrs Wm
McKinlev are holding numerous con-
sultations owing to her grave condi-
tibn. Only a part of the time at night
does she rest well and at times it is
thought she improves but on the other
hand she suddenly grows worse.
A number of caller* go to the White

Tried to Settle Hopeless Case With
Cocaine and Wood Alcohol.
Lincoln, Nkh., June fl.— j. Albert
Brink, city solicitor for a wholesale
grocery house and prominent in society

son at Brink,s room at a hotel in an ef-
fort to commit. suicide. When found

lishing house, is either at Denver or in

Proclamation to Open Indian Res-
Wewoka, I. T , June 5.—(Special)—•
Chairman Tams Bixby of the Dawes
commission has arrived with a number
of assistants, including Indian Agent
Shoenfelt, F. T. Ma. r, Cravens, Doug-
las and others. They ate here for the
purpose of issuing allotment certifi-
cates to the Seminole Indian citizens.
Mr. Bixby thinks it will take at least
six months to finish the work at this
place and possibly a year.
The Seminole lands are graded and
rated *t $5, $2 50 and $1.25 per acre.
Each citizen w ill get $309 worth of land
according to the grade and loeotion.
The first applicant was Joseph Key,
who now holds certificate No. 1, for
the Seminole nation. The Seminoles
seem to be well harmonized and it is
generally unperstood that they will all
come forward and take their allotment
without any trouble or delay. Under
the guidance of Hon. John F. Brown,
governor of the Seminole nation, the
Seminoles are progressing fast.
The following is taken from the

Each Indian Wiil Get $309 Worth The $150 000 Libel Suit Sudden-
of Land. ly Brought to an End.
Boston. Mass., June 5.--Judge C. U._
Hell this afternoon brought to a sud-
den and unexpected end the famous
$150,000 libel suit brought by Mrs.
Josephine Curtis Woodbury of Boston
against llev. Mary Baker Eddy of Con-
cord, N. II., the founder and present
hold of the Christian Scientists church.
He said :
"I have examined this libel case
with great, care, both while tie argu-
ments were going on and during the
tJial. I think the plaintiff has sus-
tained her case upon the matter of pub-
lication. As regards the publication
in the church there is no evidence
that any one there understood the al-
leged libel as applying to the plaintiff
so that she could not recover damages
upon this count because she had shown
110 injury from it.
"Taking the libela itself, I see noth-
ing which can in any way be said to
indicate the plaintiff in the first part
of the libel. The only thing said to
serve as means of identification are the
words'widow'and 'widowhood,' which
occur in the latter part of the mes-
"I have Come to the conclusion that
even the reftrence does not absolutely
identify the plaintiff, as it seems to
me,'that the plaintiff has not made out
aoase here w hich I can let g« the jury.
1 shall therefore be obliged to order a
verdict for the defendent."
The jury, which had been •*-
eluded while the arguments were be-
ing made, were summoned into the
court room. After explaining briefly
the cause for his course. Judge Bell or-
dered the jury to find for the defendant
which it did in the usual way.
A Needed Walk-
A much needed sidewalk should be
placed on the south side of the court
house square. If the county will not
place this walk the city should do it,
and as soon as this is done these prop-
erty owners are very willing and will
put down walks along their property
west of the court house square, thus
making a good walk from the college
to Main street with but one exception.
Those property owners referred too
are ready to place their walks as soon
as this is done but they feel it is of 110
use until the opening between them
and Main street is filled. The board
of regents of the college have wisely
used the money appropriated them at
various times for the betterment of
functions of Death, and give a practi-' college conditions and improvements
