THE people of Indiana and especially the members of the State press sympathize with Mr. Halford in the sad affliction that has befallen him. THE Pharos seems relieved that no deep laid scheme secured the nomination of Mr. Webster, but still ridicules his youth and earnestness. There are men who try to get. through the world on instinct. Mr. Webster is not one of them. MB WEBSTER was elected President of the Trades Assembly, including in its organization many men past middle life, three times. If he has discretion enough to fill that important position the Pharos need not worry about his about his qualifications for Mayor. THE Journal was in error in its statement that the amendments to the new election law are now in force. No emergency clause was included in the bill,' and the, law does 'not take effect •until the acts of the Legislature are published and the Governor certifies to that fact. New Albany Tribune celebrates its fourth anniversary in a tone which rather sounds Mke it is glad it is alive. WithLouisville.papers, backed by large capital, just across the river the field •was not a promising one. General Packard is to be congratulated on establishing the paper on a permanent and self-supporting basis. The Tribune is at the front among the Republican papers of the State, in ability *nd earnestness. SECRETARY ELAINE'S reply to the Italian government will be read by Americans with pleasure. His calm and dignified review of the correspondence is severely, sarcastically cutting. Kudini is disclosed as a rambling diplomat, careless and inconsistent in his phraseology, loose in his statement and impulsive and hasty in his action. The delibrate Style of the Secretary is in striking contrast. One cannot suppress the idea that a smile lightened his features aa he penned the answer which annihilated so easily a distinguished diplomat on a continent of diplomates. Tariff" Pictures.

The European situation justifies grave apprehension of war. After several semi-official denials it is now admitted' all around that Russia is sending troops to the- Galician frontier, and that Germany and Austria are strengthening their garrisons near the Russian frontier. The powers are like prize fighters who are stripping for the combat, but have not yet leaped into the fight. Possibly the fight may not come off, but the probabilities are that it will.—-New York Press. Organization Opponed to Anarchy. At a recent meeting of a German working-men's musical society, in New Jersey, several- members avowed themselves to be Socialists. Within five minutes the association expelled them.

Questioned by the Deputies-Regarding Mr,- Elaine's Letter, He Refuses to Admit the Irresponsibility of the United States, but Anticipates No Political Disturbance. DOX'T LIKE ELAINE'S XOTB. ROME, April IB.—Mr. Blame's letter to Sig. Imperial! was brought before the chamber of deputies on a question from one of the opposition deputies, addressed to the Marquis di Kudini, premier and minister of foreign affairs, as to what action the government would take in view of the note. The premier rose, amid the cheers of the government members. He spoke briefly, the substance of his remarks being as follows: He declared ^Atli some show of vehemence that the Italian government would insist on the United States assuming responsibility for acts committed within the' jurisdiction of the several states. Italy knew not the- state of Louisiana nor any other commonwealth In the union, but must look to the federal government, which was the treaty-malting power, for redress in such a case as the New Orleans lynching. The question presented by this wise, the premier oontin- ued, was one which concerned every civilized government in Europe as much as it did Italy. LCheers.l If Europeans domiciled in the United States were not as- surer, the protection guaranteed them by treaty with that power because such convention conflicted with the agreement between federal government and the state In which a violation of the treaty chanced to occur, then of what value or purport was the treaty? What European government could enter Into treaty relations with the United States and be assured of their being preserved? So far as Italy was concerned it -would never abandon the position taken at the start, that the United States must assume full responsibility lor the outrage perpetrated on Italian subjects at New Orleans. [Cheers.] Continuing the premier said his government had no fear of political or other difficulties with the United Stutes. Its regret was that so highly civilized a country should fail in the fulfillment of its duties to the- cause of justice and morality. The premier's speech was followed by a torrent of cheers, in which both sides of the chamber joined. So far as the sentiment of politicians can "be gathered in Rome it is one of "disappointment at Mr. Elaine's note. It is spoken of by some as vague and inconclusive and as leaving matters in statu quo. TOOK A BITTER DOSE. AN ABLE PAPER. Tragical Suicide of Jesse Loclcwood, Crazed by the Grip—He Will Bo Buried •with His Wife, Wliom He Murdered on Tuesday While' Insane. NEW YORK, April 16.—A second tragedy has been enacted in the Lockwood homestead, at North Salem, in Westchester county. Old Jesse Lockwood, who, while insane from the grip, clubbed his aged wife to dftath, and who has been confined to his home under the charge of Deputy Sheriff Hallock ever since, committed suicide. He was examined Wednesday as to his sanity by Drs. Casselman and Potter. The doctors believed him to be undoubtedly insane, and so decided. Some time during the night Mr. Lockwood got hold of a can of kerosene. He poured a lot of this out into -a cup and mixed it with a quantity of red pepper and alcohol. He drank down this mixture to the dregs. When found he was dead. The bodies of both husband and wife now lie side by side in the parlor of the old homestead. Mr. -Lockwood was 70 years of age and his wife was 65. They have lived in the old homestead at North Salem all their lives. The family is an old and respected one. There will proba- bly'be a double funeral Friday, when the aged couple will be buried side by side in the village cemetery. JFnnoral of Mrs. Halford. WASHINGTON, April 16. — Funeral services over the remains of Mrs. Mary Frances Halford, wife of E. W. Halford, the president's private D secretary, were held at 3 o'clock p. m. at the Foundry Methodist Episcopal church, Rev. Dr. Elliott officiating. At the request .of Mr. Halford the services were simple .and of a private' nature, only , the intimate friends and a few prominent government officials -attending the services. immediately after the services at ,the church the remains were taken to the station and placed on a. special car tendered by the Pennsylvania railroad and taken to Indianapolis for interment.

Secretary Elaine's Masterly Eeply to RudinL He Takes a Firm Stand on the Question of Payment of an Indemnity by This Government. VALUABLE HEADING FOB KUDINI. WASHINGTON, April 16.—The following is the correspondence between Secretary Blaine and the Italian government since the secretary's note to Marquis Imperial! acknowledging notice of Baron Fava's departure: "ROYAL LEGATION or ITALY, WASHINGTON, April a, 18'Jl.—Mr. Secretary of State: I hasten to acknowledge the receipt of the note •which your excellency did me the honor to address to me on the lat tnst. In reply to that whereby Baron Fuva Informed you ol his departure on leave.

"IMPERIALI. "To his excellency James G. Blaine, secretary of state." , REPLY OP SECRETARY BLAINE. "DEPARTMENT OF STATE, WASHINGTON, April 14, 1891. — Manilla Imperial!, Charge d'Affalres, Etc., Etc., Etc.—Sir: I have tbe honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note dated Thursday, April 2, 1891. It contains a second telegram from Marquis Radini, a part of which I here quote: " 'The government of the king of Italy has asked nothing beyond the prompt institution of judicial proceedings through the regular channels. It would have been absurd to claim the punishment of the guilty parties without the •warrant of a regular judgment. The Italian government now repeats the same demand. Not until the federal government shall have explicitly declared that the aforesaid proceedings shall be promptly begun can the diplomatic Incident be considered as closed,' "This government certainly had no desire whatever to change the meaning of the Marquis Rudlni's telegram of March 24. It was delivered at the state department by Baron Fava In person, written in his own hand and expressed in the English language. The following is the full text of the.telegram: ' "JftOME, March 24, 1S91.—Italian Minister, Washington: Our requests to the federal government are very simple. Some Italian subjects acquitted by the American magistrates have been murdered in prison while under the Immediate protection of the authorities. Our rigtd, therefore, to dem-ind and obtain tlv pun- ithment of Hit mttrd-rer* and indemnity for ths victims \& unqtifstiotifibtt. I wish to add that the public opinion In Italy is justly impatient, and if concrete provisions were not at once taken I should find myself In tie painful necessity of showing openly our dis satisfaction by recalling the minister of hie majesty from a country where he is unable to obtain justice. Eunrsi" "The words underscored are precisely those which I quoted in my former ncte, and I am directed by the president to express the satisfaction of this government with the very material qualification of the demand made by the Marquis Kudini on behalf of the Italian gov ernment. You quote in your note another part of the ivlarquia Kudini's telegram of April 2 la these words: " 'Meanwhile nis majesty's goverement takes note of the declaration whereby the federal, government recognizes that an Indemnity is due to the families of the victims in virtue of the treaty in force between the two countries.' "If the Marquis Rudinl will carefully examine my note of April 1 he will discover that I did not 'recognize that an indemnity Is due to the families of the victims in virtue of the treaty In • force between the two countries.' "What I did say was in answer to Baron Pava's assertion that the United States government refused to take this demand for indemnity into consideration. I quote my reply: " TheUnited States, so far from refusing, has distinctly recognized the principal of indemnity to those Italian subjects who may haw been wronged by a violation of tlie rights s-atrea to tJitm under the treaty toilli tit* United States concluded Jt'-bruary 16, 1V7J.' "The Marquis Rudinl may be assured that the United St.ates would recompense every Italian subject who might 'be wronged by a violation of a treaty' to which the faith of the United States is pledged. But this assurance leaves unsettled the important question whether the treaty has been violated. Upon this point the president, with sufficient facts placed before him, has taken full time for decision. He now directs that certain considerations In the general subject be submitted to the judgment of the Italian government. "As a precedent of great value to the case under discussion, the president recalls the conclusion maintained by Mr. Webster In 1851, when he wus secretary of state under president Fillmore. In August of that year a mob In New Orleans demolished the building In which the office of the Spanish consul was located and at the same time attacks were made upon coffee houses and cigar shops kept by Spanish subjects. American citizens were Involved in the losses, which in the aggregate were large. The supposed cause of the mob was the intelligence of the execution of fifty young Americans in Havana and the banishment to Spanish mines of nearly 300 citizens of the United States. The victims were all members of the abortive Lopez expedition. "In consequence of these depredations of the mob upon the property of the Spanish consul, as well as against the Spanish subjects, Don Calderon de la Parca, the minister of Spain, demanded indemnification for all the losses, both oftlcial and personal. "Mr. Webster admitted that the Spanish consul was entitled to indemnity, and assured the Spanish minister that if the Injured consul, Mr. Laborde, 'shall return to his post or any other consul for New Orleans shall be appointed by her Catholic majesty's government the officers of this government resident in that city will be Instructed to receive and treat him with, courtesy and with a national salute to the flag of his ship, if he shall arrive in a Spanish vessel, as a demonstration of respect such as may signify to him and to his government the sense entertained by. the government of the United States of the gross injustice done to his predecessor by a lawless mob, as well as the indignity and insult offered by it to a foreign state with -cinch, the United States are, and ever wish to remain, on terms of the most respectful and' pacific intercourse." "But when pressed by the Spanish minister to aHord indemnity to Spanish subjects Injured by the'mob in common with American citizens Mr. Webster declined to accede to the demands and gave his reasons as follows: _ ... " This government supposes that the rights of the Spanish consul, a public. officer residing here under the protection of .the United States g»vern«-Mt. are quite amerent irom tnose of the SpualHh subjeciu who have come into the country to mingle with our own citizens and hert! to pursue their private business and objects. T!u j former may c aim special indemnity: tin; hitter ur<; entltlnil 1,0 such protection as is afforded to our own citizens. While, therefore, the losses of individuals, prlvata Spanish subjects, are greatly to be regretted, yet it is understood that many American citizens suiTered equal losses from the same cause, and those private Indivlluala, subjects of her Catholic majesty, coming voluntarily to reside in tbe United States have certainly no cau e of complaint If they are protected by the same laws and the same administration of law as native- born citizens of this country. They have, in fact, some advantages over citizens of the state In which they happen to be, inasmuch as they are enabled, until they become citizens themselves, to prosecute for any injuries done to their persons or property in the courts of th'j United States or the state courts, at their election.' "It is proper, however, to add that two years after Mr. Webster wrote the foregoing note congress, in recognition of certain magnanimous conduct on tbe part of the queen of Spain In pardons bes^iwed upon Americans who had unjustifiably invaded the island of Cuba, enacted a joint resolution, approved by President Fillmore March S, 1853— the last day of his term— Indemnifying the Spanish consul and other Spanish subjects for the losses sustained In the New Orleans mob of Iftjl. The considerations upon which this resolution was passed were held not to contravene tho original position of Mr. Webster, shared also by President Fillmore. "The right to judicial remedy which Webster assured to the Spanish subjects Is likewise assured to the Italian subjects. The right is specially guaranteed in the see ond section of the third article of the constitution. And, as Mr. Webster points out, the resident alien has a privilege which Is denied to the citizen. The widows and children of the citizens who lost their lives by mob violence may sue the leaders and members of the mrj> only in the courts of the state of Louisiana; while the widows ana children of the Italian subjects who suffered death have the right to sue each member of the mob not onlj' in the state courts, but also before the federal tribunals for the district of Louisiana. "Provision Is made In tho revised civil code of Louisiana for redress of such grievances as the widows and children of the victims of the mob may plead. I quote : ".'Article 2,314. Every act whatever of man that causes damage to another obliges him by whose fault it happened to repair It. The right of this action shall survive in case of death, In favor of the minor children and widow of the decease! or either of them, and in default of these In favor of thesurvivlngfatheror mother, or either of them, for the space of one year from the death.' " 'Art. 2,316. Every person is responsible for the damage he occasions not merely by his act, but by his negligence, his imprudence or his want of skill' " 'Art. 2,334. He who causes another person to do an unlawful act or assists or encourages in the commission of it is answ<-able in solldowlth that person for the damage caused by such act.' "The government of the United States would feel justitled in resting on the argument and conclusion of Mr. Webster if the mob of March 14, 1891, did not in some ol its characteristics differ from the mob of 1851. But it is due to entire candor, due to this government and due to the government of Italy to point out certain differences of which tbe government of the United States Is honorably bound to take notice. "In the case of the mob of 1851 Mr. Webster asserts that 'No personal injury was offered to anyone;' .that 'the police and other legal au thorlties did all that was possible to preserve the peace and arrest the rioters;' that tho mob acted in the heat of blood and not In pursuance of any predetermined plan or purpose of Injury 6r insult;' that 'the mob was composed of irresponsible persons, tho names of ,nono of whom are known to the government of the United States, nor, so far as the government is informed, to Its officers In New Orleans.' "As promptly as possible after the lamentable occurrence at New Orleans the president directed the attorney general to cause through his department a full inquiry to be made into all facts connected therewith, and solicited his opinion whether any criminal proceedings would lie under the federal laws In tUo fetter;.! courts against persons charged with the killing of Italian subjects. He has not yet received the official report. If it be found that a prosecution can be maintained under the statutes of the United States the case will be presented to the next grand jury according to the usual methods of criminal administration. But if It shall be found, as setims probable, that criminal proceedings can only be taken in the courts of Louisiana, the president can in this direction do no more than to urge upon the state ofncers the duty of promptly bringing the offenders to trial. This was done in his telegram to the governor of Louisiana as early as the 15th of March. "If it shall result that the case can be prosecuted only in the state courts of Louisiana and the usual judicial investigation and procedure under the criminal law is not resortedto.lt will then be the duty of the United States to consider whether some other form of redress may be asked. "It is understood that the state grand jury is now Investigating tSe affair, and while It is possible that tbe jury may fail to present indictments the United States cannot assume that such will be the case. '•The United States did not by the treaty with Italy become the insurer of the lives or property of Italian subjects resident within our territory. No government Is able, however hlRti its civilization, however vigilant its police supervision, however severe Its criminal coda and however prompt and Inflexible Its criminal administration, to secure its own citizens against violence prompted by individual malice or by sudden popular tumult. The foreign resident must be content in such cases to share the same redress that is offered by the law to the citizen, and has no just cause of complaint or right to ask the interposition ot his country if the courts are equally open to him for the redress of .his tn- "The treaty In the first, second, third, and notably In the twenty-third, articles clearly limits the rights guaranteed to the citizens of the contracting powers In the territory of each to equal treatment and to free access to the courts of justice. "Foreign residents are not made a favored class. It is not believed that Italy would desire a more stringent construction of her duty under the treaty. Where the injury inflicted upon a foreign resident is not the act of the government or of its officers, but of an individual or of a mob it is not believed that a claim for indemnity can justly be made unless it shall be mado to appear that the public authorities charged with the peace of the community have connived at the unlawful act or, having timely notice of the threatened danger, have been guilty of such gross negligence in taking the necessary precautions as to amount to con"If, therefore, it should appear that among those killed by the mob at New Orleans there were some Italian subjects who were resident or domiciled in that city, agreeably to our treaty with Italy, and not In violation of our immigration laws, and who were abiding in the peace of the United States and obeying the laws thereof and the state of Louisiana, and that the public officers charged wittt the duty of .protecting life and property in that city connived at the work of. the mob, or upon proper notice or information of the threatened danger 'failed to take any steps for the preservation of the labile peace and afterward to bring the guilty to trial the president would under such circum- "stances feel that a case was established that should be submitte* to the consideration, of congress with a view to the relief of the families of the Italian, subjects who had lost their lives by lawless violence. "Accept, sir, the renewed assurance of my high consideration. JAMES G. BLALNE. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—¥. S. Govt B-eportj''Aug. 17, 1889, C'ouzlns Deposed.
