Salt Lake, Utah, July 3.Discovery
of a Mormon conspiracy to get control
of the bulk of the rich lands of the
Indian reservation, which is to
be opened in September, has precipi

Bull has received some exceedingly in

There will be no resort to arms for

place the Norwegians, for the first time
since the union of 1814e,g artet absolutely

The second reason for a diplomatic
settlement is that the Swedes are not
united on the proposition. The work

and believe in allowing her independ

Sweden, but the strongly expressed
sentiment of this disfranchised class
has been heard and will be heeded by
the leaders of the government. In ad

their own government asking that Nor-
no attempt be made at coercion
"Denmark is with Norway. All
classes of Danes are strongly pro-Nor

"My brother believes, as do many
other leaders that the dissolution of
the union and the independence of Nor

countries. The two nations will be far
better friends than they could ever
be under the union, All jealousy and
hard feeling will be forgotten. An al

both offensive and defensive. The na

and their safety are identical. With

BANK IS CLOSED
First National in Trouble, While
Its Chief Stockholder
Topeka, Kansas, July 3.The First
National bank of Topeka, of which C.
J. Devlin is the principal stockholder,
failed to open its doors today. The
govern'ment official's are making an ex
amination of the bank's affairs today,
but will give out no statement. Three
or four hundred depositors were in line
at 9 0,'clock.,
Following the closing of the First Na
tional bank there was a slight run on
the Central National bank, in which
Mr. Devlin also is*a large stockholder.
Cash othe amount of $300,000 was
deposited in the Central National to
offset the run.
C. J. Devlin was generally credited
as one of the most wealthy men in Kan
sas City. He was at the head of twenty
six companies, coal mining enterprises
and mercantile establishments, and for
many years has been one of the most
active, business men in the southwest.
On Friday last it was stated that be
cause of Mr. Devlin's illness, the re
cf overwork, it had been decided to
form a corporation to cover all his
properties, worth in the aggregate, it
was stated, about $7,000,000. This
action was deemed necessary, it was
announced, because of Mr. Devlin's in
ability to longer direct his interests.
Mr. Devlin's wealth is largely in coal
mining properties in southern Kansas,
and in Illinois.
Mr. Devlin also owns a number of
large coalyards in Kansas City. He is
a stockholder in twenty-five banks, his
bank stock, it is estimated, amounting
probably to $1,000,000.
Another property owned by Mr. Dev
lin is the Toluca, Marquette & North
ern railroad, a coal-carrving line forty
two miles longfi which connects with
the laSrger roads in Kansas.
