Supreme Court Decides on Per
kins Alleged Misdeeds.
WAS NOT EVEN MORALLY WRONG
New York Llfo Company Money Ap
propriated Openly nnd Avowedly
for Campaign Purposes.
New York, May 26. The appellate
division of the Supreme court today
hsnded down it decision discharging
! otn custody George V. Perkins, whom
the Supreme court had hold to await
nction of the crend Jury on a charge ot
grand larceny in connection with the
campaign contributions ot the New
York Life Insurance company to the
Republican national committee.
District Attorney Joromr, upon
hearing the court's decision dlscharg
ing Mr. Terkins, said:
"1 shall appeal this can to the court
ot appeals and get a decision there."
Justice McLaugultn, who wrote the
prevailing opinion, raid:
"It the tacts set out In the deposi
tions upon which the warrant here was
issued be constrned in th most liberal
way cot aistcnt with a Jnditial deter
rolnallon, I am ot theoptnicn that such
facta do not establish that the crime ot
crand larceny has been committed, as
the same is defined by the penal code.
The defendant had a right to give ot
his own funds to the chairman of the
Republican national committee. The
relator made the contribution at the
request ot the president ot the insur
ance company with the express under
a andlng that it would repay him. The
money belonging to the insurance com
pany was appropriated openly and
avowedly by the relator, after all the
ticis had been stated to the finance
committee, to reimburse him for the
monev whichlhe had previously ad
anTd." Justice Patterson, while agreeing
that Mr. Perkins cannot be found
guilty ot larceny, raid that he may be
com pe .led by a civil action to make
restitution, Inasmuch as the officers ot
the company had no power to make the
contribution. Justice Ingraham rays it
must be understood the court is not
now concerned with the civil responsi
bility ot Mr. Perkins lo the company.
"It was McCall who appropriated
the money ot the corporation, and the
officers or employes ot the company,
who obeyed his direction in making
that payment, without intent to de
more than carry out the instructions ot
the president of the corporation, were
net, as I view it, responsible for the
Justice McLaughlin rays:
"It cannot be raid that Mr. Perkins
did net have a moral da tea. eves
though, owing to the act that the pres
ident doubtless exceeded his authority,
he may have had no legal claim for

stir was occasioned in tbe senate yes
terday over an amendment to tbe agri
cultural appropriation bill proposing to
give 10 per cent of tbe receipts from
forest reserves to tbe states ia which

ZULUS GAIN FORCE.
British Fear That Another Great War
May Como in South Africa.
Pretoria, May 25. Tho garrison hero
has been ordered to prepare to take tho
field, and It Is understood that similar
orders have been sent to ovoiy com
mandant ot British troops in South
Africa Tho situation in Natal Is
growing moro and more serious daily
and advices received trout the troops
that are operating against ltamhata
show that ho is receiving reinforce
ments from nearly every tribe in Zulu
land. Arms and ammunition are also being
rent to him, and all elicits of the colo
nial authorities to put a stop to this
traffic have proved futile. Zulu spies
are everywhere and ate apparently able
to keep tho leaders posted as to field
plans, as no sooner is a trap set for the
rebels than they escape from It. They
have also captured several convoys.
The fact that the colonial troops have
been unable to make any headway
against the rebels, and that British
regulars are to be called on, indicates
how serious the situation is. The
authorities are hardly in a position at
present to enter into a great Zulu war,
and it is understood that they will bend
every effort to crush Uambatal within
the next few days. All the regular
troops that can be spared are to take
the field against him, while the colo
nials will act with them and will also
try to prevent any other Zulu tribes
from reaching Bambata until he can be

Favored Merchants Testify Against
Kansas City, May 25. Testimony ot

Freyscblag. of the Freyschlag Mercan

1904 and K05 for Thomas.
Tbe testimony showed that the firms
mentioned received large sums ot
money from mysterious sources after
freight bills had been paid; sometimes
in express packages, always from New
York, but none knew who sent it. On
the stand Freyschlag frankly referred
to an agreement with Thomas whereby
his firm was to receive 26 per cent re
bates on freight bills, and told Low the
asouty was deposited in New York to
the firm's credit by one Jacksea, wbom
he did sot kaow.
