GEN, GRANT TO THE FRONT
Manila, Oct. 6. General Fred
Grant with three companies of the
Fourth Infantry, two oompanien
of the Fourteenth Infantry and a
band of scouts attached to the for
mer regiment, advanced from
Imas this morning, driving the
insurgents from the (entire west
band of tho Imus Hirer. Three
Americans were wounded. It is
estimated that ten of the Filipinos
Companies 0 and H, with the
scoots, crossed the river at tbo bi?
bend and advanced westward inthe
direction of the Bincayan road,
the insurgents firing volleys bnt
retiring. Twenty Filipinos were
discovered in treuchtH at the Bin

London' Ootober 7. There are
no further developments in con
nection with tho Royalht plot in
in France, bnt tho story concern
ing General Rogot and M. Oa
vaignac, formor Ministor of War,
is beliovod to bo correot. France
is momentarily quiet, but the in
dications are not far to seek that
there are serious latent difficul
ties. M. Millerand, the Socialist
membor of the Cabinet, in a poli
tical speech last Sunday, hinted
strongly at anti Jesuit measures.
He donounced -'the acoursod press
of blackmail .and calumny," and
foreshadowed an intention to
"render amendable to law tho un
relenting factions which, under
the mask of religion, conceal poli-,
tical enterprises." He referred to
tho olerical organ, La Croix, as
the emblem of this press.
Almost at the samo moment it
is announced that tbo Pope has
received and blessed the odilor of
La Groix, and the BudcetOommit-
toe of the French Chamber of
Deputies, by thirteen voteB against
one, has voted tbo suppression of
the French Embassy at the Vati
can. Doubtless, on the reassemb
ling of Parliament, there will bo
some sensational debates' in the
Chamber, inaugurating a cam
paign against .the Jesuits and a
struggle between tho Olerical? and
Republicans, or, in other words,
between the Anti-Dreyfusites and
Preparing 'ail Campaign.

Soper. Tbo decision covers sixty

min F. Dillingham and the Waia
lua Agricultural Co., Ltd., a cor
poration, respondents. Bill for de
claration of trust, specific per
formance and injunction.
The decision begins with tho
lotte'r of ,B. F. Dillingham to J.
H. Soper under date of May 24,
1896, referring to lands situato at
Waialua and the option of Soper
on suoh lands. This answer was
brought forth by a letter sent by
J. H. Soper on behalf of E. S.
Valentine of San Francisco, seek
ing investment in the islands.
Upon the receipt of another let
ter from Dillingham, dated Jane
20, 1898, the option of May 24
was surrendered. By this the
complainants showed their accept
ance cf the offer made in the let
tor of June 20, the important
paragraph of which is as follows:
"I hahe stated in my option to
W. R. Castle, attorney for J. B.
Castle, that if I raise $1,000,000
cash capital, or any part thereof,
I shall have my share pro rata of
the promoters' interest in paid up
stock and I shall assign my option
to you with all reservation's made;
such assignment caryiog with all
compensation which would accrue
undor Bame. 1 will also allow
you 5 peroent commission in paid
up stook in the plantation at ita
par VBino upon the total amount
of cash capital you raise and pay
into tho treasury of the company."
Valentine lelt Honolulu July
21, 1898 and Soper left August 1G.
Preliminary work preparatory to
placing tho stook referred to was
There was correspondence be
tween Dillingham and J. B. Gas
tie in June and July, the lattor
having returned to Honolulu.
This was regarding tho option.
The Court calls attention to a
reference of an agreement in this
oorreapondenoe made prior to
May, 1898, whioh promised the
agenoy of the Waialua plantation
to J. B. Castle. Next follows the
correspondence betweon Jas.'Bl
Atherton and Dillingham in
which Castlo & Oooko aro agreed
on as tho agents for the plantation,
J. B. Castlo having released Dil
lingham. The Court proceeds as follows:
On or about August 12, Dilling
ham not having prior thereto in
any way notified, complainants of
the termination of the negotiations
with J. B. Castle, Sopor and Dil
lingham had a conversation on
tbo sidewalk in whioh the lattor
said Castle & Cooko wero "cinch
ing" him and were "disposed to
out things down;" that "there will
be no big bonus in tho proposi
tion," or "there probably will bo
no promoters' fees in this proposi
tion" or words to that effect, and
that thore c.uld stilt be the 5 ner
While Soper was on the deck of
tho Bteamer, August 10, a letter
from Dillingham was received by
him. In it was the following pa
ragraph: " I feel certain that we can
phce all the stock here, but as I
have given you an option to plaoe
in 8an Franoisco 4500,000 to $1,.
000,000 of the stook at par I will
give you a further extension of
the option for 3500,000 and may
bo able to let you havo $500,01)0
more, or a part of that amount.
This proposition as I presume you
know i'b regarded with great favor
in the community."
Soper demurred ri9 to Dilliog
bauvat the statement in the letter
concerning $500,000 of stock and
Dillingham replied "Ob, that is
all right, 'that is a lettor -you can
show to tho peoplo of San Fran
cisco," or "to tho people over
Next followed correspondence
between Dillingham and Soper
and Valentine regarding the op
tion and the formation of tho
company. Tho last letter of tbo
series was by Dillingham in which
ho wrote as follows:
" In reply to yours of Ootober
22, 1 reiterate, there is no contract
botween us and you had no au
thority from me, as stated in your
lotter of tbo 22nd inst , to sell any
shares of stook of the Waialua
Agricultural Co., Ltd.
Now tho Waialua Agricultural
Go. was organized Ootober 11 nnd
the articles filed Ootober 12. Be
tween September 28 and Ootober
21, complainants placed 10.00Q
shares of the assessable stock of
the company with twenty-six peo
ple. Dillingham refused to comply
with the demand for the stook and
proceedings were instituted.
, Complainants claim that the
legal title to the 10,000 shares is
still in Dillingham and pray that
he be ordered as a trnsteo to trans
fer said stook to them and that he
be further ordored to transfer to
them 500 shares of tho paid up
stook of the corporation ob the
argreed commissions and 1160
other shares of stock as bis share
of the promoters' fees.
Tho Court states that the lotter
of Juno 20 constituted an offor by
Dillingham to assign to Sopor and
Valentino tho light which he
(Dillingham) had reserved in tbo
option of Juno 7 to J. B, Castle
to place at par, stook of the
par value of $1,000,000, such
offer beingupon condition that
complainants should surrender
the option ot May 24 thon held by
The next question is, was tho
offer to assign and the consequent
assignment, if the offer was ac
cepted, made conditional upon J.
B. Castle's acceptance ot the op
tion of June 7. It is Dillingham's
intention as expressed in that let
tor, that must besought and given
effeot. Was the reservation itself
of the right, aubjeot to any such
condition. In my opinion it was
not. Examination of the letter of
Juno 7' discloses the fact that so
far as the reservation there made

CAPT. KING'S EARLY LIFE
Certain inquiries having beon
made concerning the family his
tory of the late Capt. James A.
Eing, an intimate friend of tho
family hands in the following
hithorto unpublished account.
The lato Capt. Eing's birthplace
was in Sunny Law, Bootland. On
the 24th March, 1877, he was
married to Miss Charlotte Davis;
a daughter of the lato Hon. Robt.
G. Davis, Justice of the Supreme
Court of the Hawaiian Islands.
They wero united in marriage by
tho lato Hermann Kockeman,
Biship of Olba of the Roman
Catholio Cathedral in Honolulu.
Nine children wore born of this
union, of whom six are now living,
four with tho mother and two aro
absent abroad. It is supposed by
thoso who profess to know that
tho lato Capt. Eing had left no
will, as during his lifetime he ex
pressed a desiro to dio intestate,
mpaning thoreby that what little
property there was in his name,
should go the natural way.
