four l'er Cent Limit.
In tho caso of tho Leader Printing
company vs. A O. Nichols auditor in
volving tho four por cent limit tho
opinion was delivered by Justice
Uiorcr all justices concurring. Aftor
rcvioA lug tlio writ of mandamus and
citing numerous authorities on tho
construction of tho statutes pertain-
ing to tho expenditure of public
monoys the opinion reads:
Tho safe rulo to bo adopted and
which will admit of a broad and com-
prehensive construction of ovory stat
uto and placo upon It that interpreta-
tion which will givo effect to tho true
intention of tho legislature and which
has tho support of theso authorities
although it embraces tho always im-
portant clement of legislative intent
not included In tho principle of con-
struction as stated in the Maryland
caso is that the languago of a proviso
in a section of a statute should bo held
to relate not to tho wholo statute or
to tho wholn section but only to the
clauso or proviso of which it is a part
unless another purposo or intention on
tho part of tho legislative body enact-
ing (t Is doduclblofrom the enactment
An intention on tho psrt of congress
to limit tho cntiro Indebtedness of tho
territory to one per cent we cannpt
draw from tho language of tho aot or
tho section under consideration. Thoro
is nothiqg in any other part of this act
of July 30 1880 that indicates that
congress had any such lntontion and
the clear and express limitation upon
tho purpose and character of tho In
dobtcdncss which tho territory may
create and tho amount of indebted-
ness which tho various municipalities
In tho territory may contraet strougly
rebi.t tho idea that congress intended
to make a general limitation on a
much smaller per contuin basis than
tbat fixed for theso municipalities up-
on tho entiro indebtedness to be created
by tho territory Had such an lnton-
tion as tbat claimed by tho auditor of
tho territory Inspired this congres-
sional enactment it seems to us that it
would have been useless to hr.vo
framed tho section with two excep-
tions Instead of ono. The seven differ
ent purposes for which tho territory
was authorized to contract a debt
could bavo been framed as well in one
exception Instead of twosoparato und
distinct ones if congress had intended
tbat the limitation placed upon tho
exercise ot tba authority to contrast
debts authorized by the second excep-
tion or subdivision should be equally
applicable to the first. Thore was no
reason for framing those exceptions in
two division? making two classes of
indebtedness unless it was Intended
for one class to be authorized under
differeut conditions and limitations
than those ot the first. The purposes
for which debts maybe contrasted un-
der the first exception relato to tho par-
amount necessities of the territory
and congress evidently had no inten
tion that these necestftles cou'd not be
supplied and tho ordinary and nccw.
Bry expenses of tho territory remain
unprovided for when thero wan a cas-
ual deficit in tho tevenur or that tho
Intorcat upon tho territorial debt
should not bo paid or tho necessary
cxponses ot suppressing an insurrection
or providing for the public dofenso
could not bo mot because tho terri-
tory was in dobt ono per cent of the
assessed value ot tho property tharolii.
Tho purposes for which deutn might
bo created under tho second oxcoptiou
although important aro of soooudary
concorn to thoso specified in tho first
oxcoptiou. All necessities of tho terri-
tory relating to ponai.charltablo or ed-
ucational institutions can bo mot as
thoy havo been with roferenco to tho
first of thofio tlniH far in tho torrltory
without tho crcctiun of permanent in-
stitutions therclor and It was tho pur-
pose ot congress thattheso institutions
Khould not bo ercotod by pleading tl'o
futuro credit of tho torrltory in c.xcef k
of ono por cent of tho aisotsod valm
of its proporty.
Thoro appears therefore in this sec-
tion no intention to mnhe this limita-
tion upon tho ind'-'otedness contained
in the second oxcoptiou applicable also
to tin- first nnd tho genet al rule abovo
oxprossod is tho proper ona to npply to
tho statuto undor consideration and
we2 cencludo that tho legislature
of tho territory lias pc or to authorize
the contracting of a ( :u on bohalf of
tho torrltory for prlnO'ig dono for tho
territorial auditor who an nflljor of
tho territory an 1 tho leglclaluro hav-
ing authorized tho miking of n con-
tract with tho plalntiir and the print-
ing having beon done and tho work de-
livered the plalntiir is entitled to Its
warrant and tho writ of mandamus is
accordingly granted.

Mauiiid Nov. 6. The Spams! gov
eminent n n result of tho dclibora
tloim of the inlulstors over tho utter-
ances of General Weyler tin- former
captain general ot Cuba just boforo
he sailed for Spain has decided to
order his trial by court-martial no
matter whore he intiy land If ho cou-
flrins the accuracy of tho press reports
of his utterances. Tho commanding'
officers ut all tho ports of the. kingdom
have been Instructed to demand of
General Weyler tho moment ho can
he coiuinuiiloatod with tho exact
terms of tho speech which ho deliv-
ered In roply to tho manifestations at
Havana upon tho occasion of his em-
barkation for Spain Sunday
Tlie steamer Montsorrnt on which
Ueneral Weyler sailed for Spain on
Sunday on Wodnowlay reached Gl-
barru on the northwest coast of Cu
ba with her engines disabled nnd may
bo compelled to return to Havana Im
which rase it Is not unlikely thoro
will be interesting developments.
General Weyler hns a largo enough
following among officers of tho army
owing to promotion or for othor rea-
sons in sympathy with him. U make
both tho Republican and Carl 1st par-
ties endeavor to compromise with him
in order t.o obtain his support Tho
goveriimi-nt would be glad to glvo
liberty of iieti : to demonstrations lu
his favor with a view of gauging tho
extent of his popularity; but It fcara
disturbance of tlie public pence.
Wahiiimiton Nov. 0. It nppoar
that the determination of tho Spanish
cabinet to eourt-iimrtinl General Woj-
ler Willie not directly duo to n request
of this government wns probably In-
spired by en intimation from tho stata
department thnt his utterances wcro
not calculated to smooth tho wuy of
negotiations. It is surmised that by
thus acting with promptness tho
Spanish cabinet has paved tho way
for a counter remonstrance againsti
