752000 Tons Have Reached New York Since

for a Cold Snap and Higher Prices
The unexpected cold snap has had the
effect of awakening patient longsuffer

the anthracite strike has been settled
for more than a month and coal has
been coming to New York at the rate
of 30CCO tons a day the coal famine

While the Indian summer weather was
on there was small demand for coal
among the tenements and the natural

suit ever brought In the courts of the

begun In an action brought by Walter
I Morsehead representing the minority
stockholders of the Central Pacific Rail
road to recover more than 100000000
from tho estate of Collls P HuntIngton
which enormous sum the plaintiffs de
clare the stockholders of the Central Va I
cln Railroad were defrauded of by tho
machnatlons of trollli P Huntington I I
Lelnnd Stanford Charles Crocker and
Mark Hopkins known In the gigantic I
railroad deal of years ago ns the big i
Through their counsel Robert Fulton
Outline tho plaintiffs In this suit have
secured from Justice Fitzgerald In the I
Supreme Court an order to show cause
why the cxecutois of the Huntington
estate should not > an Inventory of
the estate so that they may know how
many millions they may recover If the
suit Is successful as tho entire Hunt

How the Money Wn Taken
According to the complaint In tho suit
when Collls P Huntington and the other
numbers of the Big Four all of whom
are dead were officers and directors of
the Central Pacific Railroad Company
organized to build several thousand
miles of lines they gave the contracts
for the construction of the road to their
own companies and In that way put
I JIOUOOOOOO Into their own pockets more than
The complaint names the Pacific Im
provement Company the Contract and
Finance Company and tho Western De
elopment Company as the favored cor
pmatlont In the award of contracts for
the construction and Impiovoment of the
Central Pacific and states that these
companies were owned and controlled
by Huntlngtan and hla associated These
companies It Is alleged were paid ex
orbitant prices for the work that they
did namely 103000000 when the actual
cost of thu work was not moro than
The complaint In stating that 30000000
worth of bonds were Issued by tho Uni
ted States Government for the purpose
of aiding Intlio construction of the Con
titil Paclllc says
In yuru uojico of these fraudulent
arrangements the said Huntington and
his associates from tlmo to time de
livered to themselves through the In
strumentalities of the said companies
the whole or greater part of the 130000
000 worth of tile United States Govern
ment bonds given by the Government to
aid the construction of the Central Pa
cific and likewise tho whole or greater
part of tho bonds and capital stock of
the Central Pacific Railroad to the total
value as the plaintiff Is Informed and I
believes of upward of 16000000 which
bonds and stock were obtained In pre
tended payment to tho companies afore
said and the plaintiff Is Informed and
believes that the construction of the
roalroad and all Its lines did not ac
tually coat more than 00000000

But the curious were doomed to dis
appointment so far as seeing well
known citizens on the witness rack
for Justice Clarke soundly denounced

which he made no direct charge nnd
whose names were mentioned with no
good purpose Justice Odorman or
dered that tho case be tried on tho
specific charges made by the wife

casions left with Dr Austin Flint and

behavior on the pirt of his wife but
says that his relations with other wom
en were as Innocent as hers with other
men Ho says George Wentworti often
took her out Edward F Butler of the
Produce Exchange Is also named as
one of Mrs Valentines friends
It Is the Insinuations contained In
these affidavits that are ruled out bv
the Court
Mrs Vulenllne says In her nmb vII
that the person to whom her husband
was annoyingly attentive was Miss
Grace Stowell a comely young person
of twentyfour who lived at the board
ItiKhouse In West Follyeighth street
Miss Stowell says In an affidavit that
Valentine hud merely called on tho
