To Issue $*,500,000 in New Stock.
NEW YoaR, Fet-. 19.-Informatlon was
received by the Evening Post yesterday
that at a meeting of the directors of the
Louisville, New Albany & Chicago Rail
4 road company, held at the company's of
lice in this city, an additional issue of
$2,600,000 of the company's stock was
authorized, the president of the company,
Win. L. Breyfogle, stating to the direct
ors that he had arranged with some one
to loan the company money on them. The
Evening Post's informant said the Issue
of this stock was part of an attempt to
defraud the company out of just so much
money. -President Breyfogle denies any
such issue of stock as stated, and
declares the company in good shape.
About the time Hrelyfogle was talking to
a reporter for the Evening Post yester
day W. S. Alley, a stockholder in the con.
pany, was applying in Chicago to Judge
Tuley in the circuit court for a receiver
for the company. In his affidavits Alley
alleges that a conspiracy exists between
Breyfogle and Henry S. Ives of Cin
cinnati, Hamilton & Dayton fame to
wreck the company; that they are schem
ing to increase the capital stock from
$5,000,000 to $7,500,000, and that Brey
fogle wants to receive this increase. Brey
fogle says the char 'es tire fictitious and
sensational. Ives bud nothing to say
about the story.

The Fiasaelai Dispute.
LoxnDon, Feb. 19.-The financial dis
pute between the McCarthylte and Par
nellite factiocs of the Irish parliament
ary party Is likely to be much in evidence
during the coming struggle. The $40,000
released a month ago from the league
fund was divided in the following man
ner: The sum of $P5,000 went to the cam
paign committee and $15,000 passed into
the hands of the tenants' defense league.
The latter sum forms the subject of the
present dispute. McCarthy's idea te that
the amount is out of proportion to the
number of evicted tenants the league has
relieved, but the Parnellites are inclined
to waive this point. They contend, how
ever, that instead of being devoted to
evicted tenants it was used to meet an
overdraft on the Hibernian bank.

this afternoon a flying current in the Al
leghany river !cached 87 feet 11 inches,
and began to slowly recede. As even the
wildest estimate had placed high water at
25 feet, the great damage Inflicted in this
city is due more to carelessness in remov

gheny. The greatest losses of course fell
upon down-town wholesale stores and
riverside establishments on Pennsylvania
avenve, where fully three miles of cellars
are filled to the first floor and goods
damaged beyond repair. Added to thit the

A Pleasant Progressive Euchre Party
at the Home of Mr. and
EDITRr TsIttBNE: With the rapid rise
in the value of public lands in this state
the question, [low may one legitimately
acquire title to such lands? becomes in
Now that congress has limited the total
acquisition possible to any one person
under entries made since Aug. 80, 1890,
to 840 ares, and the commissioner of the
general land office has said that such lim
itation applies to mineral as well as ag
ricultural lands, it is of no little impor
tance that we have an authorative defli.
tion of the term "mineral' as used in the
mining act of May 14, 1872.
Hitherto the interpretation of the gen
eral land ultice has tended to constantly
increasing the latitude in the construc
tion of the United States statutes upon
that point, so that the impr-ssion has le
come quite general that almost any kind
of stone, as well ns deposits of gold, could
be patented under the general designa
tion of "placer claimi." as employed in
section 2,:129 of the revised statutes of the
Secretary Noble, however, seems in his
desision of January 2, 1891, in the case of
Conlin vs Kelly, 12 L. I). 1, to have called
a very suddei halt upon such liberal con
struction, and the certain iliscunilture of
many placer claimants in this state. In
that uecision there are several very signiti
-ant points. The secretary quotes from
the decision of coomssi loner of the gen.
eral land illice as follows:
"There is no bosut that this quarry of
rock is mineral within the provisions of
the law and the le-islosi thereunder ( N.
P. Blennett jr. 3, L. 1). 1161 and as such
subject to entry as ap sr claim, tier
being no veins of quartz or rock in
place containing siny of the precious
metals." The case of N. P. lienneit, Jr.,
has iithertoieei the one upon which wsi
have mainly relied to support quarry
claims; but foll-wins the nishie quotation
Secretary Noble says: ' I cannot conrur
in this statement in your opinion. The
case you cite is not a desision of thisde
partment, but a letter frosn Commissioner
McFarland to the local office sit Leadville,
Colorado," snd then citing the language
of Lectrin 2389 1. S., U. S., lie says: "It
is apparent that the deposit t-reaiu
spoken of means a deposit having some
special value, other than that of mere
stone quarriug for general purposes * * *
The stone in the tract in contra
veray has no peculiar proprerty
or characteristic that gives it
special value such as attaches to gypsum,
limestone, mica, marble,slate, asphaltuns,
borax, auriflerous cement,fire-clay. kaolin
or p'itroleuso. Its characteristss appears
to be Its hardness, and its value in this
particular mine appears to be its proxisi
ity to the town of Alexandria, which has
come into some prominence. * * * It
is simply a quarry of stone for general
huilding purposes, and ss such not subt
ject to entry as a placer under the mm
It will be seen that the secretary em
phasizes the fact that his is the first au
thoritative decision upolt the question
prespoted, and since such is the fact his
definition of a "placer claim" is of spe
cial importance, both for what It includes <
as well as what it excludes.
Already the cancellation of placer ap
plications under this decision has begun,
and "the end is not yet;" hut claimants for '

President J. J. 11H1, of the Great North
ern went to Europe some time ago, it
is said, was due to the purpose of ralsine
funds for the ctlmpletion of his road to
the coast from 1i hlen, Mont., but the t
claim is made in Chicago that while nego
tdtisins of the sort were one of the objects.
of his visit abroad, the principal matter
was to securei a transfer of the controlling
interest in the Kansas City. A little oyer a
year ago somoe English capitalists
guaracteed the paynient of the Interest
on Kansas City bonds,and the transfer of
these to Mr. HIll for the (,reat Northern
is reputed to be the object of the trip. The
dispatches also announce that from va
rious sources it Is learned that the Great
Northern's chief executive has obtained
whit he was after besides the necessary
capital for extending his lines President
8tickney, of the Kansas City, was quoted
as saying that he was not at liberty to talk
about the deal at present, but Intimating
that a consummation would be reached,
as it would undoibtedly prove a strong
affair for his road.
T'he most iiterestinti feature of the ru
mored transaction mule to the surface
during tie last few days in the Twin Lit
" les, and if President 11111 has secured
English capital for an extension of the
Great N rtiern to the coast, the most of
it, in the opinio of Northn e -tel rall
road officials, will be devoted to purchas
ing the franchises of a road already built
part of the way, and only needing some
:300 miles more to comintrlete connections.
This rumor was partieilarly life in St.
Paul yesterday. and Is to tile effect that
the Great Northern has negotiationi un
der way with the Minneapolis, St. taul
& Sault Ste. Marie system by which all
extensions of the Soo, vest from Sault
Ste. larle will become the iroperty of
the Great Northern and for ii strong rea

current in St. Paul also a ispers that the

A Young Man on Deep CEeek Fiettes His
Feet While Hunting Wolves.
There is a younc man at the Minneuota
house laid up with his feet badly frozen.
11is name is Louis Vette, and he lives in a
cabin on Deep creek, about 4d miles from
Great Falls. The particulars of this ct
atility as near as cmu be learned from
the unfortunate man are as follows: Ac
companied by Ed i(abe, who stops at his
(Vette's) cabin, he started out on the first
of this month to kill some large grey
wolves which have become very numer
ous in that vicinity, and trailed them
about four miles from his cabin without
getting a shot at them. As it was getting
rather late in the day he concluded to re
turn home, and in crossing Deep creek
broke through the ice,thoroughly wetting
both feet. lie walked bali I to his cabin
with both boots full of water, the weather,
mean time, having turned biting cold.
and as a consequence, found the water in
his boots lrozen, and it was with great
difficulty he removed them. Hle thought
his feet were not frozen badly, therefore
delayed seeking medical alit immediately.
Al Henry, a neighbor, at last prevailed
upon him to undertake the jourtiey here,
and they arrived Tuesday afternoon. It
required three days to make the trip.
I i)r Gordon is attending to the case, but
at this stage it is rather dillitilt to teli
wh-ther the patient will recover the use
of toth limbs or not.
