"There is no snow on the nast fork of the Yellowstone, where the presidlrlnt has been camping. The only snow is on the nearby mountains. "Thle president's party is small. Re sides himself and Major Pitcher, thein party consilts of a camp crew of three or four, three troopers and four scouts. "The latter are lookinl around every day for intrmudrs, and woe to the news paper man who infringes upon the presi dent's seclusion. They hustled a fellow named Bradley out of the park the other day. 'lihr president is having a great time, and no mistake." MOFFAT ROAD WINS IN BATTLE FOR LAND Colorado Commission Refuses to Re scind Lease Already Granted to a Friendly Corporation.

Judge Clancy has refused to settle the bill of exceptions and the motion for a new trial in the receivership matter in the suit of Michael Hickey, F. A. Heinse and others against the Parrot Mining com pany. in which he awarded the receiver, Thomas McLaughlin, $t6,ooo and the lat ter's lawyers, Kirk & Clinton and Maury, $0,000ooo. There is a balance of $Sa,ooo to be paid the receiver and $5,ooo to Maury and $5,ooo to Kirk & Clinton. Judge Clancy heard the matter yester day, when he sustained the contention of the receiver's lawyers that the time had passed for taking the appeal. The lawyers asked that an execution be issued, so they might levy on a bond of $22.noo which Heinze, the plaintiff, who asked for the receiver, had been or dered by Judge Clancy to pay. Attorney J. M. Denny, who was in court representing Mr. leinze and the latter's fellow plaintiffs, made an appeal for a stay of execution for IS days, so he might take other legal steps to pro tect Mr. leinze from the necessity of forking over the $22.ooo. Judge Clancy allowed the stay, but said that if at the end of the time named Mr. Heinze had failed to pay he would enter tain a motion to set aside the stay order and issue an execution. lie told Mr. Denny the latter might get a writ of mandamus from the supreme court, if the latter saw fit, to compel him to settle the bill of exceptions and the mo tion for a new trial. It looks as if Mr. Heinse would have to pay, but two weeks is a long time and the resources of lawyers and the recourses of law are almost limitless. Therefore the fingers of the receiver and his lawyers may perforce tingle for the $aa,ooo much longer than the time of the stay. TONIGHT. At Auditorium, vocal and instrumental treat. J.
