mors which were current yesterday that
Henry V .....id had been asked to resign the
presidency of the Northern Pacific Railway
company, while apparently without foun
dation, have doubtless some fact aa a ba-is.
A story ha leaked out to-day which ha
i very appearance of truth. A few days be
fore Ihe recent meeting ol the Northern
I'acitic directors there was a pood deal of
bullish talk on Third itrert regarding these
securities-, and a portion of tl waa traced to
Mr. A. .1. Drexel. A irood
deal more was hinted at than said, bow
ever, and the story was that aotuetbinst
would occur at the meeting which would
enhance the value of the Mock'. What IhU
was has only Just transpired. It appeart
that Dr xel, Morgan ,v. Co. were mat favor
able to the retention of Mr. Villard ai
I'liey were not satisfied with Ibe way in
h he bad managed the finances, and
admitting that money was neeeasary to pay
off the floating debt and provide means for
prosecuting further th work on the road
and its branches tliry did not care to have
anything to do with a new bond ispiie un
less they could name a nw man to conduct
the company's affairs. They proponed to
form a syndicate which would take at a fair
figure the entire $20,000,000 of second
mortfisse bonds on tbe condition
that Mr. Villard should resign, and
Mr. A. B. Casatt, late vice president
of the Pennsylvania Railroad company,
be made president. Mr. Casstat, it was
said, had agreed to takethe position, should
it be offered him, and Messrs. Drexel,
Morgan & Co. believed that be would be a
valuable acquiollion. Their plat) met with
decided opposition, however, from Mr.
Villard's friends, and they finally com
promised by agreeing to do what they could
to place the bonds, though avoiding all
responsibility, and allowing Mr. Villard

meeting of tbe creditors of the late Arch

Halt to determine whether they will appeal
from the decision of the District Court to
tbe Supreme Court iu the crtat case re
cently decided (October 1) by the former
"against the creditors, " as tbey term it.
The decision Is very complex and volumi
nous, und quite Indescribable. To the
non-professional tnuu not pecuniarily In
terested in the case It is dull and unintel
ligible. The most persistent of tho cred
itors here understand that it Is adverse to
them. They have had an organiza
tion for keeping up this agitation for two
years, but have remained silent pending
tho long trial and delayed decision of the

young man, with very light hair and plenty
of pocket money, suddenly began to hang

thusiasm. On ilic second night the young

the young man made violent love to the

NkwYhhk, Oct. 13. Reports lufo been
current for some day that several very
prominent Christians are earnestly engaged
in an effort to bring out Mouslgnor Capel as
alicturer iu the pulpit of a protectant
church. I'hc R"v. Ribert Collyer, rector
of the ( btirch of the Mesaiah, said yester
day ; "some day ago a gentleman, who I
not a rn. nber of my church, came to me
and inquired if I would not invite Monsig
tmr Capel lo lecture on certain questions
bearing on Christianity. I replied thai I
would think the matter over and lay It before
the trustees. Sickness engrossed my atten
tion and the matter slipped from my
memory until now. I shad do nothing iu
ihe promises, not even consult with tho
trustees. If we Invif l Munsignor Capol
we would be compelled to submit to one of
two thing', cither IMen to the dcfitio of
Christianity ' tin' exposition of tbe dogma
of bis church, or wc would have to confess
our weakness in cajling upon him to show
us our v ay."
When aeked if he thought Monslgnor
Capel would accept an invitation wore it ex
tended to him, Dr. Collyer replied that he
did not. "If. however," he added, "I
should Invite the gentleman to speak from
my pulpit, ll would be for the purpose of
knocking him over or pulling him and his
doctrine to pieces afterwards,"

ded by the members of the Milwaukee

that the meeting will take place in 1330.
The power to decide thi matter alway
rests with the society of the city whero the
sanit i s u , ,,,-xt be held, and, since the
local musical society has reached this con
clusion, there it no doubt ot thm postpone
ment. It ha not been oflicialiy announced,

and the opinion of tho members ratified.

Mauve, violet and geranium red are
likely to be nearly as fashionable as Fumee

violet tint known as creque. The most
expensive materials will tie worn for bon
