Witness was closely pressed unon this Point and finally went into along Epla Yatrou Lothe effect that in his dealings with Hurlbut he acted wholly on the defensive As he would against a Man who would strike him and in dealing with him he realized that he was a bad Man and he must so treat with him As to prevent him from injuring them. Quot i did not intend to general Hurlbut. I meant to do just what i said in my offer to him. Representative lord interrupt Init a i Don t care for a Lona explanation of the philosophy of your action.

Iris impress in a was that since deals us a in futures have been carried on Grain has been d fait with in a less speculative spirit.

He did not agree with president jew to in styling Quot Corners Quot a National calamity. Corners Alvan ced the Price on consumer temporarily but the reaction a aused Acox responding decrease. Speculators often sell the Grain they do it not have and that is gambling. A contract however is always entered into and the buyer can demand the Grain Aad not a settlement of the differences if he . He might have orders from customers which would cause him to buy Grain in Large quantities for delivery in Vine and he might without knowing it create a Corner. If the proposed Law was passed he could not safely As a commission merchant take Large orders from legitimate customers and business would be driven out of thes ate.

Scoville s petition for appointment As conservator of the estate of Gui teau came up in the county court this morning. Judge Loomis said that in View of the recent decisions of the supreme court of the state there was some uncertainty about the jurisdiction of his court in probate matters and advised to let the matter rest till the doubt was settled or take the Case to the probate court which ably had jurisdiction in probate matters. Counsel stated they would rather have the it ourt refuse to hear the petition and they would then Appeal to the supreme court direct. This was accordingly done.

Lite Virginia bourbons on Tbs Kea Dinster defeat. Special to the Sentinel Washington apr a 16. A the Virginia bourbons who Are now in Washington Are jubilant to Day Over what they term a Knock Down for Mahonjr and the Kcal Djusic ers of the old Dominion. Virginia a amps nine members of Congress five being Bonbon democrats two republicans and two a ead Justers. The new apportion sent gives her one More representative. desiring to secure a readjusted in the person of Thia new member has bees in Virginia for some time working up sentiment for redistricting the state. The vote in ii he legislature last week resulted in a defeat of or. Mahone s desires. The bourbons Here say this is a direct left banded blow of it the re adjusters and they take consider big Consolation from it. To Day your correspondent met a Virginia Bourbon member and asked him what he thought of the matter As it now stands. He replied Quot this is the Rirs to real blow the read Justers have received. They have found that to Weir policy does not suit the honest people and that their repudiation is to be repudiated. 1 am of the opinion Fiat Mahone will be so completely chagrined by his defeat in this move that he will keep still. It is beneath the dignity of a United states senator to take a hand in the things which Ivl Ahone Stoops to. We propose to sit Down upon the re adjusters so completely that they will have no show at All a year hence. Mahone a Down in Virginia yet arranging another redistricting Bill but 1 am confident it will be outline work of the two parties in incl aun Ami Olio. As soon a the two congressional committees have Joe Fectea organza tin they will begin work in Indiana and Ohio. It is understood that president Arthur has already been consulted As to the work to be performed by the republicans wac Ile Junir. Liar num s visit Bere is significant of the fact 4hat he has already outlined the a work for the democrats. Inasmuch As the two parties will pay particular attention to the Light Over members of in these two states the Congo is amp ional committees will be important factions in the coming Strug the democrats have already announced that their line of tight will be principally coi fined to the Tariff and will where it will be effective also touch upon the subject of foreign immigration the chinese in particular. They Are against the chinese in Rhi Gration and will Sharge the republicans with being opposed to All immigration in the same degree As they oppose the influx of coolies. The democrats will also Lay at the door of tiie Republican party the charge that the Republican Congress has Fai Leil to pay off the National debt simply because that procedure would Quot be decreasing the outstanding Bonds and therefore would decrease the securities of National Psi us and would be in opposition to both Bankers and bondholders. A tip Siuai in in in int Tiana As viewed from it Washiington. 13��?Indiana republicans now in Washington frankly acknowledge that Indiana will go democratic this fall. An sex member of the Sie publican Central committee of Indiana said to the Sentinel correspondent that this is an Quot off year Quot and that not Only would the democrats secure the state orces but that in All probability two or three Republican members would not be returned. Said a Republican member from Indiana to Daj Quot i fear that neither Steele nor Peelle will be returned. Especially aide or. Peelle s chances jeopardized. He Haa made a Good representative is an Able Man and True to ins constituency but Marion county will go democratic ii a my opinion. Young will English will of , r in very Strong but any Good Dei Socrat will be elected i am afraid. No it is not Only the prohibition matter that will lose the state for us. We Are Loci s this year for Many reasons. It is generally conceded by the republicans that the state will go democratic and there being no head to the party the republicans have lost heart. They Lack Sand in other another Indiana Republican member said to the Sentinel correspondent to Day Quot i really consider none of the Republican members of Congress in jeopardy As far As their re election is concerned except Peele and Steele but if the prohibition question is up or. Orth will be in danger. It seems that there is nobody in the state now to run things and the party is becoming confused More and More every Day. For More reasons than one the state offices at least will go to the democrats in my the action of messes. Mat Ion and Cole Rick in Congress has been such As to make them very much stronger it is thought by their colleagues while the majorities of other democratic members Are so Large that there can be no possible danger of their defeat. So there is no thought of a possibility of any of the democratic members being Defeated. Or. Heilman says he does not want to a a candidate. A amp believes he will be if nominated. Many the Quot pocket however Are urging Hiya to be a candidate and it is Likely he will pol to their requests. Or. Heilman s labors is a member have been confined to la oking after his constituency wanting of be. He does t do anything to make enemies. A gentleman who in All probability will be the Secretary of the Republican congressional committee has said to the Sentinel correspondent that the proposes to begin Quot working Quot Iii Diana As soon As possible that it is conceded that she will go democratic this year but they Hope to reduce the majority that now appears to be foregone about 20,000.

It is understood that As soon As the Tariff is disposed of in the House the Bill pro Viding for the Quot judicial ascertainment of the facts in cases of private claims Aid for other purpose Quot will he called up for passage immediately on the ground of or Reif ency existing. This is the Bill amended and rearranged spoken of in Ritj dispatch some time ago As being framed for fraudulent purposes and in the interest of parties who have Rebusi a claims to put Shroub. The other Bill Pic All private claims on an equal footing and threw thera before the court of Clair sir. There was no debarring of rights to push to r successful termination to claims for property destroyed by sympathize a of the confederacy.

A prominent new York politician Euphi dresses his opinion Osi the Percsi Deuthal Eviett Oiin and the situation in Ohio Antl Militina. Special to the Sentinel Washin Oton april 17.�?it is feared by the Republican leade?3 of the Chat there is brewing in their ranks a faction Light that if either or. Blaine or or. Arthur is nominated in 1884 life Ronces will arise Quot that can not be reconciled that will be made that party fealty can not heal. This uneasiness on account of the gathering storm causes not a Little disturbance in the political dreams of the president. It is this phantom s warning that causes his delay of action. To Day a Well known new York Republican who is Here in the interest of a Friend s appointment was asked How the Arthur Blaine factions appeared to Bim in the East and other parts of the country. He said Quot i ear there has been 0 ened in the Republican party throughout the country such a breach that the factions can not be brought together for the next pre.3idential Campaign. Why the Grants Conkling Arthurs and camerons would see Blaine and the Lus publican party in or. Talmige s veritable hell before they would take the stump for him. And do you sup Posci Blaine and his backers in item York would rend their nether garments for Arthur if he is nominated Well i la take that Baek. I believe Blaine could be reconciled to the Arthur crowd but never would Conkli Gand his party come the politician was reminded of the manner in which these Stalwart Lions were brought out for Garfield at the Zaat m moment and would t that same fealty do it in 1884 if or. Blaine should be nominated Quot no Quot replied the new yorker Quot for there was no real personal ii est Garfield and Grant then. There is a Nerso Aal difference bet eco the factions to Day. Conkling Felt the sit Down in the appointment of Robertson is collector of new Yoi Kas a personal Dart from the Bow wielded by Blaine. That Javeline Cut deep into Conkling and As his Pride was above party i do idiot believe he could be induced to so Peak a Good word for Quot but Why do you especially dwell upon or.

The attorney Genera i after Clair Jim. Nut Ferous Legal opinions and Deci Sions. Says when the pres ideas performs the duty of Quot approving the sentence of the a flirt Quot martial i Steing a Oitice his act has All the solemnity and significance the judg Kcuik f a court of Law As it has to be performed under the same Coq Eque uces. Now one of the consequences is that when judgment has been regularly entered in a Case properly within the cognizance from which no Appeal has been provided or taken and it has been followed by execution it is final and conclusive upon the party asap not a Hom it is ent Jred end this elect attaches in my opinion to the action of. The president in approving the action of the court martial dismissing an Miscer after that approval has been consummated by actual dismissal. Here it is proper to Todd that the very inquiry now under examination amp As been resolved in the by the Doliber ate decision of a former administration As appears by the message of the president of june 5 1879, transmitting to Congress the report and proceedings of the Hoard of army of ricers upon in Case of general Porter. The conclusion then reached was that the president was without Power in the absence of Legisla Tion to act upon the recommendations of the report farther than by submitting the same to Congress. This cod Lusion the denial of the existence of any Power in the president to review and to annul and set aside the findings and sentence of the court martial in thai Case i recommended by the Board and it Lse entitled to great a Feight As being the View not Only of the president himself but presumably that of his. Cd remnet among a those Mem it hrs were men eminent in the profess von of Law. These opinions of my predecessors Aad supreme court All go to est Ublish this proposition that where the sentence of a legally constituted court martial Isi f. Case within its Jurist Icelon Kas been approved by reviewing the authority and carried into execution it can not afterwards under the present state of Law be revised and set aside. The proc clings Are then at an end and the action thus had upon the sentence is in the contemplation of the Law final. S am unable to arrive at a different conclusion and i. Accordingly hold that in the Case under consideration the president has no Power to review the proceedings of the court martial acid annul its sentence. It follows from this View that the apr amp Iii ent can afford the apply cant no Relief through a revision of the sentence in his Case As that sentence involved the immediate dismissal from the army and disability to hold optic a thereafter. The dismissal is an accomplished fact and so far the sentence is completely executed and the Disabb Lity is a continuing punishment and in regard to that the sentence is by ing exe wiled. The latter May be remitted by the a Roise of Che pardoning Power but the for can not in any Way be a infected thereby. Thus a Pardon would not the applicant to office in the military service for which he was this id Only be done by appointment under. Spa Cial authority Frohri Congress since by the general i few of military service appointments to the rank of general officers Are to be made by selection from the army and All vae Rucies Iii established Rigi crus and to the rank of colonel ate to be tilled by promotion a Nortin to senior it except in cases of or other incompetence. In this connection i remark thai the act of 186s, i a Feri de to by Geue Ial Porter in his letter of request Waas its title imports duly me into be. Declaratory of the Law a amply that an officer cashiered or dismissed by sentence of if Mii trial can not be otherwise restored to military service than in rough a new appoint Ciu with tha consent of the Senate. The Lawis the same As to officers of the army who cease to be such other Way. The Power to appoint Jii not Eon., erred by that statute. This Power re Mains subject to general Law and 1 the Abi a nce of special authority from. Congre is it Caa Only be exercised with respect to the person who has ceased to be Fin Olliver in the manner above stated where it might equally Well be exercised if such persion had Naver been an officer in the Milita y. Upon the general question considered the conclusion arrived at is that it is not within the competency of the president to of lord the applicant the chef he has asked for. That is to say that it is Noj. Com Ici ent for the president to annul and see aside to in finding and sentence of the court martial and nominate Lim to the Senate for restoration to Nis former position in the army. The opinion of the Ivl Torney general is acc Dir pained by the following letter from the Secretary of War. War Depati Ament Washington. April 15.
