Topek. Jan. 1 Gov. I.cody. who two weeks
ago assembled the Knntas Legislature in cx
t inordinary session, llnds hliunelf uud his party
In u serious predicament. Both branches of
the Legislature have passed a bill creating "a
couit of visitation" to hear complaints and ad
just lailroad rates. The bill went lo Gov Leudy
last night, but he did not sign it for tho reason
that tlio title is uefectlve'ln that it does not
cover one-tenth of the provisions of the law.
The Legislature can sit another week, and It Is
the plan to-night to have Gov I.oeilyseinl tlio
bill back for correction.
Itnilro.id attorneys declare that the law will
be invalid unless it is mdically changed In an
other puitleulnr. The Constitution of Kansas
gives the Governor power to assemble the
Legislature in extraordinary session when
emergency arises. The emergency in Gov
Loedy's call was the enactment of railioad
legislation." Now a bill has been passed In
uccoi dance with hiscall wlileh byitsown pro
visions iloos not go into effect until the first
Monday in April next Tho railroad lawjers
tisseit that no emergency existed unless thai
emergency is met by the Immediate operation
or the law.
It is said that the bill will bo returned to Ihe
Legislature to bo corrected, and if Hint is done
the new court of visitation will bo composed
of three Populists, nud appointed by Gov.
Leedy. instead of the now He publican Govern
or, as provided by tho bill as ju-sed. Quick
work will have to be done, as Gov. iiedy goes
out of office and tho Pioseut Populist Legisla
ture dies at noon on Monday, .Tun. I'.

TAr.Rrrowx. N. Y.. Jan. 1 Papers in an In
junction granted yesterday in Brooklyn by Su
preme Court Justice Frederick A. Ward on the
implication of Howard II Morse, representing
William and John D. Hookefeller, wcro served
last night on all persons with claims against
the town of Mount Pleasant for services as
assessors, or for work dona in tho Itockcfel
ler tax litigation. Tho Injunction icstrains
those porsous from attempting to cotle-et the
bills, and also orders the Board of Supervisors
of the county of Westchester not to levy taxes
to ralso money to defray the bills, which amount
to nearly $8,000, and overs that tho emplov
ment of nssessors and others was unauthor
ized and illegal. In supiiort of this allegation
are affidavit showing that no authority vvu
over given to the assessors for the defence of
the itockefcllor certiorari eases, and that tbev
were never authorized to employ counsel, ex
ports or stenographers, with the exception or
Sylvester Sen and William Miller, who were
emploiednt flouday. and Daniel Auustionc,

Tho steamship Paris of tho American line
got to hor dock yesleulay morning with her
decks In condition for tobogganing, mid wllh a
lot of warm-'., called hniipy passengois who
had scon twonly-tlireo men saved from ship

nnd officers and all hilt one of lliecrowof the

on Tuesday In mld-oconu. leaking nuil likely
at any moment to founder, A boat's crew of
the Paris had i opened them, in u heavy sea,
after thev had been four days on the leaking
ship. A stoamer hud passed the distressed
ship tli dav befoie, apuaieutlr not seeing hei'
signals, and the spirits of the Ylnsobala's men
were low when the Paris appeared.
The Yiiilobnlu left Boueii on Dee. - in

M. Clarke eays he doesu'f know. The engineer
sent for him and told him that the shin was
making wator faster than tlio bilge pumps
could expel It, The leaic was near the engine
loom. Tlio ballast pumps nml the main pumps
of the ship were put at tho woik. but tlio water
Kuiuedou them. Klieroom refuse got Into the
pumps and choked them, and on Saturday the
llrcs were Hooded. Stcum was kept up 111 the
boiler of the donkey engine, and that was all
tho mcoliauical power available in the ship.
A triangular sea anchor of llilrtr-foot spa is,
with a sail spread across them, wai riggsd
and lu Idled and let out from the stern of the
ship to keep her out of the trough of the sea.
Cant. Clarke also put up a jib.
The Vludobala tossed about until Monday
morning without sighting stnoke or sail. Just
uftordawuof Monday, in tbe gray light made
nioro misty by a succession of passlne showers,
tho lookout saw a steamer's smoko several
miles away. As she euiue nearer four masts
nnd u stugls funnel were made out. She au
pouted to bo on a northwesterly comse. and
the Captain guessed her to bu u freighter

too much dnvllght for the rockets to attract
her attention nnd that when sho was in u

At noon of that day the discovery was mads
that tho sea water had got ioto the fresh

boats had been damaged by a tea on tho voy

the American liuer. bearing north, came Into
view. Tlio men on tho wreck saw the
big American half un hour before she de
lected the smaller vessel. Second Officer
Duckworth, on the Paris's bridge, saw the
Biitisher at r)::0. and the Paris made for her.
Cant. Wutklns signalled a question to the sklp
uer of the indobala, and Capt. Clarke an
swerod that he must abandon his ship, but
hadn't tho meaus. "I'll send a boat," Capt
Watkins replied.
Chief Officer John Bradslmw took charge of
the boat. The Fourth (Jlll.-or. Biuhard 11.

The Paris was to wlndiutnl of the Vlndo

The bo.it dropped down to as near the

Paris's boat tried to get alongside tho Viinln

of his men over in it. When Capt (I.uko
cuuglit the Idea he launched one of his boats

Wasiiinoton, Jan. 1. Advices of a dlsaulat 1 23B
Ing character vvero received atthe War Departs 1 111
nient from Major-Gon. Otis to-day. Two dot j ill
spatches weie said to have boon received, om j l
relating to tho situation at Ilollo and tho other, j fl
concerning conditions In and around Manl'jJ )H
wltli particular reforenco to the attltudo of tha J RH
Filipino Insurcants. 1 H
The information obtaluablo about tlioyoti; , l jU
tents of these despatches Is exceedingly 3 jM
meagre. Officials preserved a skater feti $ .Jmm
cenco than usual whon asked about tha sltua- ''"jH
tlon In the Philippines. All Hint could be ob j H
tallied about Gen. Otls's messago concerning J M
the situation at Hollo was that Jt said that j jH
Brig.-Gen Miller, who commands the ox- j M
pedltion of two Infantry regiments and n but- I H
tery of artillery sent to that place from Manila. 1 M
had landed and was in consultation with tha j H
Insurgents. This probably means tlint Gen. H
Miller landed peisonnlly, nnd not that Mi & H
tioops landed 3 )H
Tho other despatch from Gen. Otis contained , H
the luteresllng Information that AgulnatdO H
had disappeared fiom his headquarters and 'm
could not he found. Geu Otis expressed con- 'g H
eciuover this occurrence. From the tone of i
his message he was evidently worried over m
the possibility ot an uprising by tlio Filipino J 'm
army In tho vicinity of Manila. He said there) 1 JH
had been no disturbances yet. Mm
Tlie escape of Acuinnldofioin American sur- 'f
velllancels apparently not pleasing to the of ' M
llclals heie, who think that tho Insurgent i M
chief in ny have cone out to Inspire feellnc H
among his followers against the United States. ' M
The failure to find Agnlnnlilo is ombarrassinr, - 'i H
11N0, because of tho refusal of the Insurgents jg 'H
at Ilollo to surrender that place without Agifi- 'I 'H
nnldo's permission. If ho could be located hy j . H
Gen Otis the latter would compel blm to say f jB
whether he would or would not agree to In- 0 L
stiuct the insurgent chief at Ilollo to nllor r,
Gen. Miller's forces to land without opposition. ij Jmm
