THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, TUESDAY, ' MAT 14, 1889,
SETTLED AT LENGTH.
End of Thirty Tears' Litigation for
Some Valuable Troperty.
THE MIKA CLAEK GAIKES CASE
Beaches Its Last .Appeal and is Decided
Against Jfevr Orleans.
IHE SCOTT CHINESE ACT IS A GO
"Washijtgtok, May 13. The United
States Supreme Court to-day, in an opinion
by Justice Bradley, awarded the executors
of the will of ilyra Clark Gaines the sum
of 376,000 against the city of New Orleans
for the use of property sold by the. city, but
recovered by Sirs. Gaines after long litiga
tion. The judgment of the lower court
awarding the executors 1,300,000 for the
use of the unimproved property sold by the
city was not concurred in.
This case, probably, has been the most
interesting, the hardest contested, and the
most prolonged known to the judicial his
tory of this country. Over 30 years ago
Justice "Wayne, of the United States Su
preme Court, said that when the historian
of the American bar should come to write
up the case it would be registered as the
most remarkable in the history of our
courts. The case had then been before the
Supreme Court five times, in one form or
another, and has now been decided as many
JU.WATS OXE OF THESI PENDING.
The first suit in the case was brought by
Mrs. Gaines (then the wifeof General Whit
ney) in 1834, and since that time decision
has followed decision in regard to it, until it
has become a byword that there was alwayB
a Gaines case pending. This first suit
sought to recover what was known as the
Evariste Blanc tract in New Orleans. Blanc
bought the tract for about ?4,500 from the
executors of General Daniel Clark, a promi
nent citizen of New Orleans. He sold it and
some other land to the city ot Sew Orleans
lor 545,000, and the city sub-divided the tract
and sold it to a number of persons for be
tween $600,000 and 5700,000, agreeing to de
fend all questions of title Mrs. Gaines
having a few months before claimed it.
The grounds on which Mrs. Gaines set up
her claim were that she was the child of
General Clark by a secret marriage betvjeen
him and Zulime Carriers, a woman well
known in the city, and that General Clark
had left a later will than the one under
which the property was sold. This secret
marriage formed the axis on which the liti
gation revolved, and the case was fought
with bitterness by both sides.
A LONG TIME TO WAIT.
It was not until a few years before the war
that Mrs. Gaines was finally declared to be
the legitimate child, as well as the lawful
heir, of General Clark. Even then the city
of New Orleans did not surrender, and after
the war Mrs. Gaines was compelled to bring
a suit for damages. In 1881 the Circuit
Court of the United States tor the Ijouisi
ana district gave judgment in her favor for
51,925,067, and it is on an appeal from this
judgment that the case to-day was decided.
The present case it is generally conceded
exhausts all the resources of the law, and is
regarded as the final settlement of the liti
gation. Mrs. Gaines, fighting to the very
last for her rights, is dead, and so it is b
lievedare all her immediate relatives ex
ccpt her daughter-in-law, Hattie Ii. "Whit
uev, in whose name, as the administratrix
f "the estate of Mrs. Gaines, the case stands
a the court docket.
Justice Bradley rendered the decisionof
? Court, which was unanimous. Justice
mar and Chief Justice Fuller were not

"Washutgtoit, May 13. The Supreme
Court to-day rendered an opinion in the im
portant case of Chae Chang Fing, appel
lant, versus the Collector of the Port of San
Francisco. This is a suit brought to test
the constitutionality of the Scott Chinese
exclusion act. Shortly after the Scott ex
clusion act went into effect Chae Chang
Ping returned to the United States irom
China, and endeavored to secure entrance
at the port of San Francisco. He had left
this country armed with a certificate en
titling him to return, but the certificate was
declared invalid by the Scott act. The
Collector refused him admittance, and suit
-was then brought in the United States Court
for the district of California to test the con
stitutionality of the Scott act, in accordance
with the previsions of which the Collector
The California courts upheld the consti
tutionality of the act, and from this deci
sion the case comes here on appeal. This
court affirms that judgment. It holds that
Congress has the power to abrogate a treaty,
and in support of that view cites the author
ities of the courts on the subject, holding
that the propriety of such action is not a
matter for judicial cognizance, but that it is
a matter for the political depratment, Con-
gress, it says, has the power to exclude
aliens from the country whose presence is
deemed inimical to our interests.
The Supreme Conrt Decides a Test Case In
volving millions of Property.
rSrXCIAI. TELXGBXXTO THE DISrATCH.1
"Wheeling, May 13. The United
States Supreme Court at Washington to
day handed down a decision of the utmost
importance to thousands of people in this
State, and which affects property rnnning
into the millions. In the years following
the war many hundreds of a class of cases
known as war trespass cases were brought
in this State, principally by Union men,
claiming damages for property destroyed by
or taken for the use of the Southern army.
Judgments were rendered right and left.
Many of the cases went to the Supreme
Conrt, which uniformly decided that
the person who claimed to have acted under
oiders of Confederate officers conld not rely
on belligerent rights as to matters of defense.
Then the new Constitution of "West Virginia
went into effect in 1872, containing a clause
that all the judgments thus awarded should
not be enforced in the courts of this State.
In the case decided to-day, that of Ireeland
-versus Williams, collection of the judgment
was enjoined on the ground that the defend
ants were protected by the Constitution.
The Supreme Conrt of West Virginia sus
tained this view and the case went to the
United States Supreme Court. It was there
sought to Teverse the decision of the West
Virginia Supreme Court on the grounds,
first, that a judgment could sot be sued out
on the action by the contractor, and that
therefore the provisions of the "West Vir
ginia Constitution violated the Constitution
of the United States; second, that a judg
ment Tendered 'became vested property of
the plaintiff and that he was protected.by the
fourteenth amendment to the Federal Con
stitution. The Supreme Court holds there
is no conflict and that the judgments are no

fSPEClAL TILEanAM TO THE D16PATCH.1
Pindlat, May 13. The window glass
manufacturers of this locality have all re
ceived notes advising them that a meeting
of the organization will be held in Pitts
burg, May 23, to consider a proposition to
shut down earlier than usual this season, and
to determine whether the tank sys
tem, as operated at Jeannette, is
likely to offer any menace to the
trade. From talks had with the different win
dow class manufacturers here by The Dis
patch correspondent the opinion is gathered
that most of the officers of the several houses
will attend the Pittsburg meeting, and that
thev will generally be opposed to the early
shutdown movement, although when they get
into conference with the manufacturers from
other cities they may change their present
views, which, it must be said, are not at all
arbitrary. ' ,
Regarding the tank method, Mr. John u.
Baker, President of the Ohio Window Glass
Company, said: "I do not think the tank system
will prove sufficiently successful as to giro
manufacturers in the natural gas region any
uneasiness; in fact, 1 don't apprehend any
serious complications to the trade from that
source." This is an opinion which is shared by
the officials of the other window glass houses
As to the stato of trade in this section, all
expressed themselves as being very much
better satisfied than two months ago. There is
nothing like an overproduction here now,
although a fear of such a state of affairs was
seriously entertained about the beginning of
the year, bnt stocks have been worked off
much more readily than was anticipated and
are not accumulating.
THE SHERIFF'S WIFE
Prevents the Escape of a Trio of Desperate

Akeon, May 13. Three prisoners in the
county jail, all Indicted for penitentiary
offenses, made an attempt to escape from the
jail last crening. Harry Bums, their leader,
had unlocked the heavy corridor door by
means of a hard wooden key he had made after
getting an impression of the lock, when Mrs.
W. B. Gamble, the deputy sheriff's wife, who
was the only person in the front part of the
jail, ran in and shut the door, made of light
The prisoners were advancing on this. Burns

seized a revolver and cried ont: "The first one
that touches this door is a dead man." She

A Young Man Suicides by Hanging In His

Butler, May 13. Marcus Eyth, a prominent
yonng man of Centreville, committed suicide
by hanging himself in his father's bam yester
day. The deceased was 20 years of age. There
was no cause assigned for the deed. It is said
that he visited a yonng lady on Sunday even
ing and when leaving she said: "When shall I
see you again!" and he replied: "In the morn
ing, but you will be surprised."
Arrested for Train Wrecking.
Caston, O., May IS. Thisclty is intensely
excited over the arrest of Frank Ryn and
Harry Sadler, two yonng men of respectable
families, on the charge of attempting to wreck
the Pittsburg, Ft. Wayne and Chicago Vesti
bule Express, at Louisville, this county. Three
different attempts were made by placing ob
structions on the track. The arrest was made
Saturday night, at a low resort in this city, by
Detective Perkins, of Pittsburg.
They Did Not Work on Sunday.

-MANY DISGUSTED TB0H1BITI0KISTS.
Despite a Stubborn Fight Thev Fall to Cat
Down Many Licenses.
ISFECLU. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Freehold, N. J., May 13. This is
license day in court, and great was the agi
tation thereat Owing largely to the change
in the law, much concern was exhibited by
interested parties regarding the probable
action of the court in its treatment of the
many applicants that presented themselves
for favorable consideration. One hundred
and twenty-nine retail and 94 wholesale
liquor dealers asked to be licensed. Of
these, 47 wholesalers succeeded in passing
muster, while 12 were laid oyer for two
weeks and 8 refused absolutely. Of the re
tailers, which included all the leading fash
ionable summer hotels along the coast, but
109 caught the favorable recognition of the
court, 9 applicants were refused, and 11
laid over for consideration until May 21.
Of this latter class many are very import
ant and prominent
The temperance people were out in strong
force and made a gallant fight, but with all
their endeavors the amount ot fees will ex
ceed any previous year by at least $10,000.
Disgust seems everywhere apparent npon
the faces of the Prohibitionists at the
manner in which wholesalers were granted
license, as in inanyinstances it was manifest
they were merely covers for a business
known throughout the State as simply "jng
taverns." The fees ranged from $150 to
$500, this latter figure being the sum at
which the club house at Monmouth Park
race course was taxed.
The summer hotels all along the coast
also received hard raps, and in some cases
had their fees from previous years advanced
considerably. The city of Long Branch, by
a special enactment, becomes a greatly ben
efited community, as they will receive pro
ceeds direct of the fees from the licensed
dealers there, amounting to nearly a third
the entire amount taxed.
