ARMY OFFICER IN TROUBLE.
Captain Reynolds of the Third United States
Cavalry Arrested at Fort Ringgold.
Sam Antonio Tex. Jan. 13. Capt. Bain
bridge Reynolds Third cavalry stationed
at. Fort Ringgold Tex. has been placed
under arrest charged with drunkeness and
conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentle-
man. This affair is all tbe more sensational
as Captain Reynolds was considered one of
the brightest young officers of the army.
His patents are prominent people in In-
dianapolis. In October 1888 he was court
martialed at San Antonio for drunkeness
and sentenced to suspension forone year.
At that time he entertained a peculiar
hallucination concerning society young
ladies here and made a public apologv in
the papers for tbe supposed offei.so. His
sentence was remitted the ensuing January
and he took a pledge ot sobriety as a condi-
tion. This he has observed until recently
when he fell into his former habits. The
particular charge brought against him
arose at a ball at Cnmargo near Fort Ring
gold. He attended in uniform and became
intox'cated. For this charges were pre
ferred by his first lieutenant Parker to
which General Stanley issued a court mnr
tial ordtr for Tuesdav Jan . 20 1891 at Fort
Mcintosh for Capt. Reynolds' trial.

THE BEHRINO SEA CONTROVERSY.
The Motion to Submit tbe Quettioa to the
Washington Jan. 13. It is understood
that tbe cabinet considered tbe Behring sea
controversity and Indian question at the
regular meeting today but it is impossible
to get any official information on tbe sub-
ject. It in said howevei that tbe Behring
sea matter was not formally brought be-
fore the cabinet as it baa generally been
the custom to confine the foriLal discussion
of questions aff ecting the foreign policy of
the government to tbe heads of depart
ments directly interested. It is learned
through perfectly competent official legal
authority that the case is not actuully be
fore the supreme court for final settlement
"You see" said this official who was
present at yesterday's proceedings. "The
petitioners yes erday moved an injunction
or rather prohibited it as it is termed in ad
mitiing cases." The attorney general then
rose at his place at the bar and objected to
he introduction of the motion and did so
on several grounds.
First He asserted that the supre me court
has no jurisdiction in th case at iftue
which orginate.l in the district court of
Alaska. Then be argued briefly that the
case in point was a political one without
legal aspects and bad no place iu tbe su-
preme court. He also took the grounds
that it wasunconstitath nal for tbe supreme
court to admiiiisterupon matter belongi. g
to the executive department. There were
oi lier minor points in his argument.
Mr. Choate of counsel for the petiti ner
also made a few remarks to the effect that
there was no expecaiion of action on l.is
motion tor leave to file the petiiion in ad-
vance of giving the United States a full op-
portunity at the outset to be beard in op-
position. Tne court thereupon made an order set-
ting a day two week from yesterday whe
the question of adraiui g the motion to file
papers will be formally argued. The dis
cussion which then takes place and de-
cision subsequently reached will in no
way affect the merits of the case or have
bearings on its future disposition. I am
confident the court will reassert its con-
clus.on of yesterday."
