4. A naval ofllcer liorc to-day In re-
ply to a suggestion that it was iv pity
such an important decision a tlio ver-
dict of tlio court of Inquiry into the
Malno explosion should rest sololy
upon the testimony of divert who
scorned men of only avorngo Intelli-
gence roplled: "The court of inquiry
hns not had to dopond upon divers'
testimony nlone." Thon realizing
that he had said more than ho in-
tended the oflicer resumed his habit-ial
It is believed that tlio testimony of
Lieutenant Commander Walnwrlght
was highly important as bearing on
the question of the existence of sub-
marine initios. The government has
employed an export photographer
now in Havana who will send to the
nayy department In Washington pho-
tographs of armor plates and different
portions of tho wreck immediately
upon recovery from tlio water.
If the Spanish court of inquiry un-
der Captain I'cral has a definite plan
of autlon. which seoms doubtful it
has not been made public. The Span-
ish divers will of course report tho
result of thch observations to tho
Spanish court of inquiry but when or
where has not been made known.
Sonator I'roctor has seon much in a
short time and there Is good authority
for saying thnt ho will make the re-
sults of his observations known In n
strong speech in tlio Senate on his re-
tnrn to Washington. At Mantnnzns
Miss Ilarton and Seuator I'roctor
under tho guldanco of United Status
Consul llryco and Mr. liovns tho
British vice consul Baw extromes of
sulTorlng they had never conceived
possible. Four persons died in one
wnrd whilo the party was there.
.Senator i'roctor was reticent on tho
subject but others declared that tho
whole east of tho Island was under
tlio control of (icnernt Mnxlmo Gomez.
Senator Proctor however went so
far as to say:
"Certainly a peculiar state of affairs
exists. A resident of Mnntnnws told
me that If 1 wished to correspond with
ticneral Gomez ho would hand my
lottor to him and have an unswer
back In a short time."

Hush and other counties In Contra" I

said that the creditors of the concern
did not want to havo tlio land sold
just now as there were signs of ad-
vancing prices and that they would
like to have It put to somo use Instead
of lyiug idlo and piling up taxes.

Contrary to early Information re-
ceived from Washington and to the
regret of persons who wished to soo
tho question definitely decided the
United States supremo court failed to
pnasupsn tho right of the territorial
board of cqualliUon to increaeo tho
total of tho assessed valuation as re-
turned by tho different countios. This
quostlon was involved In tho Kny
county tax caso against cattlemen In
tho Oiago Indian reservation whteh
was attached to that county for judi-
cial purpoios. Tho United S'.alcs su-
premo court in its opinion just mnde
public rotors to tho question of the
territorial ralso as follows:
"It Is urged that this order by the
board of cqualiHiou was unauthorized
and void. Wo learn from the opinion
of tho supremo court of Oklahoma In
tho prosont caso that this question ol
tho power of tho territorial board of
equalization to raUo tlio variation ol
tho properties to bctaxed had boen. In
tho previous caso of Wallace va. llullon
decided atllrmstlvoly and thnt tueli
decision was followed In tho present
caso. Wo aro informod however by
tho brief Died in behalf of tho peti-
tioners that kubst'i'iontly on Septem-
ber 3 1b7. in the case of Uray vs.Stllos
tho subject was aga'n oon&ldered and
an opposite conclusion roochod
It Is also asserted In said brlot that thr
question Is ono of general importance
and that a final decision of It may ef-
fect tho validity of inuncipal organ
ir.itions hcrotoforo Issued In that ter-
ritory. Such allegat one disclose that
there arq parties not represented be-
foro us whoso Intorcsls aro Involved
In tho inquiry. Tho caso wa heard in
tho trial court on a demurrer to tho
petition and tho question of tho valid
Ity of tho am Ion of tho board of equal-
ization in raising tho aisosscd values
throughout tho territory was put by
tho supremo court without discussion
on its provlous decision in the cbbo of
Wallace va llullon. Wo aro nlso In-
formed by tho brlofs that the caso just
mentioned Is now pecdlng be foro tho
supromo court on an ordor for rohoar-
Ing. Wholher tho facia pertaining to
tho action of tho board of equal . ttlon
in this particular woro tho" samo in
Oray vs. Stiles as those in this case
wo cannot ssy from this rocord.. In
such circumBlonccs. wo think It would
bs prematuro for tMs coii't to dotor-
mlno tho question."
This loavcB tho question Of the terri-
torial rauo still u matter of doubt.
Tho only way la which It could br
brought again boforo the Unltod
Statoa supremo court in thd Kay coun-
ty cnio would bo by mi amendmont to
tho original potition from Kay county
ThlB at loast is tlio opinion of attor-
neys who are familiar with tho case.
It Is probable howovcr that this will
not bo dono.
It has been the doslro of intorostod
persona to havo tho territorial rain
paBst-d upon b; a territorial tuproinc
court other than tho ono that bus just
boon disintegrated. Tho Wallace vs
llullon caso opinion uphold tho board
of iquall.alion. Tho caso of Uray s
Stiles as Is well known was de-
cided subsequently r-xiotly opposite
to tho other caio Judo John MoAtoo
wroto tho opinion whijli was t de-
tained by Judges Kenton and lllercr
Judge Tarsnoy dissenting and Ju'ge
Dale being dliquallfied to sit This
beoamo tho territorial lew but an
opinion by the United Status supremo
court wsb eagerly looked for as It
would definitely fioltlo which of the
two territorial supromo court opinions
Interest now centers on what the
now territorial sup ome court will do
A motion for a rehearing in the Wal-
lace vs. llullon caso li ponding and
will coma boforo the territorial nu
prome court next June Should the
porBonnol of tho court remain as It is
now which it not probVble a change
from tlio last opinion mado In the case
of Oray vs Stilot would di pond upon
Judges Kurford and Htlnor. Judge
liurford Is thought to bo opposed to
tho ralso. Judgo llslnrr since ho has
had aspirations for tho bonoh has
c.rofully rofralreil from expressing au
